Maybe I am missing something here, but don't we really want to be able to retrieve the spent fuel for future use?

Dear Radsafe:

    From:    _jpreisig at aol.com_ (mailto:jpreisig at aol.com)    .

    An article in the Trenton Times (USA May 15,  2012)  describes results 
rom an article by 
arpizo et al. in the journal Cancer Cell.  Thiosemicarbazones (a  
ompound) are used to correct a
utation in the p53 protein.  The protein is then enabled to do its  
riginal job and stop the spread of
arious and assorted cancers.  They did work implanting human  tumor cells 
n mice, and then
reating the tumor cells with the relevant compound.  More studies to  be 
one, of course.

    Look at the article for a more exact and complete  description of the 

    WIPP for storing High Level Waste is a neat  idea.  Guess there would 
ave to be many EPA/Public
    Meetings (again???) for this to occur.

    This months Health Physics Society Newsletter  describes some kind of 
 summer training opportunity in Nuclear Science at Brookhaven  National 
ab and a west coast USA
 location.  See the newsletter.

  An MCNP5/MCNPX course is being given soon also.  See the  HP Society 

   For those not having the means to join the VIP  Brookhaven Lab tour 
escribed a few days ago
   in a radsafe posting, Brookhaven Lab usually conducts  summer tours of 
he Laboratory on
   specified days.  See their  website.  

        Have a good  weekend!!!!

         Regards,     Joseph R. (Joe) Preisig, PhD
