GUANGZHOU Michael Cooper Jersey , Oct. 17 (Xinhua) -- A cutting-edge domestic steam generator Tuesday departed for the first demonstration nuclear power project using Hualong One technology, a domestically developed third-generation reactor design.


The Hualong One ZH-65 steam generator has a life span of 60 years with lower outlet humidity and a higher power-weight ratio than previous technology.


"The generator has demonstrated China's latest nuclear power equipment manufacturing technology," said Zeng Xianmao, chairman and general manager with the Dongfang Electric (Guangzhou) Heavy Machinery, producer of the generator.


The generator was developed by a team led by Zhang Fuyuan, chief designer at the Nuclear Power Institute of China.


It was designed for the No. 5 unit of Fuqing Nuclear Plant in Fujian Province, a project of the China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC).


The government has approved the Fuqing project to build six nuclear power units. The No. 5 and 6 units will be a pilot project also featuring Hualong One.


In May, a hemispherical dome, weighing 340 tonnes and measuring 46.8 meters in diameter, was installed by crane on the No. 5 unit, marking the start of the assembly stage.


The installation of the dome ranked first in projects on progress in nuclear science and technology, according to the annual conference of the Chinese Nuclear Society on Monday.


Hualong One was jointly designed by China's two nuclear power giants, China General Nuclear Power Group and CNNC, and passed inspection by a national panel in August 2014.


China has 37 operational nuclear reactors and is building a further 19.


China is aiming to have 88 million kw of nuclear power capacity in operation or under construction by 2020. The current level is just under 57 million kw.


On Sept. 1, China's legislature passed a nuclear safety law, reflecting the country's careful safety outlook and commitment to its international obligations.


There are now four projects using Hualong One design under construction, including two reactors in Karachi, Pakistan. A contract was also signed in May for the construction of the Hualong One design in Argentina.


The country has promoted the Hualong One at home and abroad.



Over the past few years, there have been some big scandals in the NBA over referees gambling. This has been a huge controversy because if it would have been detected earlier it easily could have meant that different teams would have made it to the finals and won a championship. Knowing that referees were gambling on games means that they were throwing them one way or another. Any die-hard sports fan cringes at the thought of certain games or series going a different way had the referees not cheated.

The biggest scandal to happen in recent years is that of Tim Donaghy. He was caught a couple years ago, but his gambling began much earlier, around 2003. He began placing general bets around this time but by December of 2006 he was releasing sensitive information to gamblers. He and his buddy Jimmy Battista began a gambling strategy that included Donaghy getting $2000 - $5000 for every bet he guaranteed with his calls. He would tip off high-stakes gamblers with some inside info and careful recommendations on what teams to gamble on. If he was right he was paid around five thousand dollars a pop. Once he was convicted, he was released on a $250,000 bond and faced up to 25 years in prison if the maximum charges were prosecuted. His sentence was not nearly that long but it was nice to know the government was taking it seriously. Along with that, he was responsible for paying a $500,000 fine to the NBA as well as $30,000 to the government. This event rocked the entire league, and many questioned the integrity of the sport as a whole.

Commissioner Stern has gone to great lengths to try and fix the wrongs that have been made, and the league is taking precautions to try and make sure that something like this doesn't happen again. The sad thing is that these kinds of things not only happen in professional basketball, but have gone on in almost every sport. If the money is worth the risk, many referees of different sports are willing to throw away their integrity for a few extra bucks.

It is the hope of every sports fan that referees will call game from an unbiased perspective, and let athletes compete at the highest level without playing favorites. This Tim Donaghy scandal opened a lot of people's eyes to the shortcomings of men in power, and hopefully stricter regulations will prevent these kinds of things from happening again.

Donaghy, along with Battista, pleaded guilty to two felony charges and spent around 15 months in prison. While these were the only two to be convicted and sentenced to jail time, it was suspected that 13 other referees were involved in the scandal.


Instances When You Have To Hire A Lead Inspector In San Diego March 2, 2014 | Author: Krystal Branch | Posted in Education

There are many homes that require the services of a lead inspector in San Diego. This is because structures that were built long ago have dangerous components in the interiors and exteriors. If materials used during the construction of such structures have these materials and they start to wear, they become hazardous to your health. Therefore, one must always work with the best inspecting team.


For one to stay safe from poisonous elements, they choose experts who are licensed by the city authority. The city has given licenses to those who have qualifications to carry out the inspection jobs. After carrying out these procedures, they make sure that the client gets necessary advice on what to do, what to avoid, and to remain secure from poisoning. They warn people from using paint materials containing the poison.
