We are trying to fill a Health Physicist (Review Application for Radioactive Material Licenses) Position and would appreciate any suggestion on the best places to advertise. The deadline for applications is July 28, 2009 I setup this temporary link to make it easier to find the information. www.midasgoal.com Thank you
An NRC-identified finding of very low safety significance with an associated Non-Cited Violation (NCV) of Technical Specification 5.4.1 was identified in the area of occupational radiation safety associated with the licensee’s failure to perform adequate job planning to evaluate the radiological hazards, as required by station procedures. Specifically, the licensee failed to properly assess the […]
I understand that there are more and more studies in Europe not paid for or influenced unjustly in anyway by the cellphone industry which conclude that the radiation coming off of cellphones is indeed dangerous.
I surf the net on laptop with a wireless connection. It’s usually quite close to my genitals and i was worried about the safety of this. Also how it would compare in terms of radiation absorption with keeping a cell phone in your hip pocket.
My wife is getting an HSG (hysterosalpingography) procedure tomorrow and I wasn’t there for the initial consult. Are there any concerns about the nuclear dye or x-rays, especially because we are hoping for a healthy egg… Just worried about zapping the ovaries just prior to ovulation. Any help on direction or questions we should ask […]
hey before i buy a DS i just wanted to know if the DS gives off radiation. Someone told me its like a mini laptop…are there any safety percautions i should know about before buying one? good advice needed:)
Would like 5 or 10 health and safety points containing points on how mobiles can be dangerous. Already have whilst drivng and radiation issues. cheers S.C.C
I need to replace my lost certificate with a new one. I have looked and can’t find anything on the net to help me.
CERN compares LHC collisions to cosmic ray collisions in the atmosphere which happen routinely at many orders of magnitude higher than the LHC (100 TeV+). However, cosmic ray collisions happen with one particle at rest, which mean the resultant collision will have a conservation of velocity near C and escape harmlessly into the comos. The […]
I am in a further education college in the UK. Today the teacher did a practical demonstration using certain radioactive samples and a geiger counter to detect the radiation. I am quite concerned about the cancer risks associated with these materials e.g. cobalt, thorium, protactinium and rocks from Dartmoor. I worry about the possibility of […]
So about two or three days ago I was on the bus and I had a safety pin in my mouth since I always chew weird things. It was small and made of brass, I think. I had completely forgotten it was there and when I swallowed it went down my throat, but instead of […]
Hi guys i’ve been seeing many different opinions on this topic. I’m a intermediate level skater and i love doing LOADS of dangerous tricks and crap. I fall a lot though. Just recently i fell and fricking hit my head my elbow and my forearm. Luckily i was wearing a helmet, and the only thing […]
Having read the reports on the two men apprehended at Scipol airport on a supposed dry run; I got to thinking about what we out to look out for. The jihad, which calls for all out martyrdom might find us looking for men or women who would swallow a condom with C4 and a detonator […]
Hi! Ok, so this summer I am flying, and I am going to be wearing skinny jeans, but on the calf, they are slightly big, so I am planning on putting safety pins on the bottom of them so they wont be so big. And I have already tested this and they do look smaller. […]
Testing method has to be different for each. For example to test the rudder for cracks an ultrasound or x-ray might be taken. As a maintaince engineer, recommend appropiate inspection methodologies that can be implemented to overcome perceived or real deficiencies associated with visual inspection. (Large Commercial Aircraft – eg. Airbus A310 or Boeing 747) […]
I realize a microwave is or so; it’s not a particularly big deal. I guess I’m wondering if there is a chance of radiation leak or the microwave undergoing more structural damage; i.e., blowing up and killing me, my loved ones, or my neighbors. I’ve heard that the newer microwaves have devices that prevent from […]
She ended up dying from radiation poisoning and brought a lot of attention to the news. I saw the documentary a while ago and can’t remember her name.
I am thinking of taking a trip by train from NYC to Atlanta. I know all about airport screening for safety ~ but what about trains? Do they x-ray the baggage? Do they look through carry on luggage for security? When I looked around the Amtrak site it didn’t really say anything about their safety […]
if so, is there any special i need to do?
