Contacts:Howard Wheeler, Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, [email protected] / 0207 215 2748Nick Holloway, United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority, [email protected] / 01235 466232 The extension to the contract is excellent news for both EU and UK science. JET has been a shining example of scientific co-operation between EU members, and this news means that these mutually beneficial collaborations will continue, allowing us to do essential experiments on the path to delivering fusion power. A heavy weight has been lifted off our shoulders. This is extraordinarily good news for EUROfusion and the European fusion community as a whole. We can now continue to work on the realisation of fusion energy together with the indispensable experience of our British partner. JET is operated by the UK Atomic Energy Authority at Culham Science Centre, near Oxford. Scientists from 28 European countries use it to conduct research into the potential for carbon-free fusion energy in the future, through work coordinated by the EUROfusion consortium which manages and funds European fusion research activities on behalf of Euratom.The future of the facility has been under discussion since 2017, as its work is covered by the Euratom Treaty, which the UK Government intends to leave as part of the process of leaving the EU.This new contract provides reassurance for over 500 staff at JET, including many from outside the UK. It also means JET can conduct a series of vital fusion tests planned for 2020. These tests will serve as a ‘dress rehearsal’ for the new international experimental fusion reactor, ITER, currently being built in southern France.Prof Ian Chapman, CEO of the UK Atomic Energy Authority, said: A contract extension for the world’s largest fusion research facility, Joint European Torus, has been signed by the UK and the European CommissionThe contract extension will secure at least €100m in additional inward investment from the EU over the next two years.The news brings reassurance for the more than 500 staff at site in Culham, near Oxford.Staff at the Joint European Torus (JET) facility in Oxfordshire undertake research in the latest technologies aimed at providing clean, safe, inexhaustible energy. The new contract guarantees its operations until the end of 2020 regardless of the EU Exit situation, and secures at least €100m in additional inward investment from the EU over the next two years.Science Minister Chris Skidmore said: Prof Tony Donné, Programme Manager of EUROfusion, added: Having made my first speech at Culham, I know how hardworking and dedicated UK Atomic Energy Authority staff are, which is why I’m pleased to announce today’s agreement, which is great news for the future of scientific research in Oxfordshire, the UK and Europe. Extending this contract means cutting-edge and world-leading fusion research can continue in this country, which I know will be a welcome reassurance to the hundreds of workers at Culham. Science has no borders and as we leave the EU, this kind of international collaboration remains at the heart of our modern Industrial Strategy to maintain the UK’s position as a world leader in research and innovation. Notes to EditorsFusion energy researchFusion research aims to copy the process which powers the Sun for a new large-scale source of clean energy here on Earth. When light atomic nuclei fuse together to form heavier ones, a large amount of energy is released. To do this, fuel is heated to extreme temperatures, hotter than the centre of the Sun, forming a plasma in which fusion reactions take place. A commercial power station will use the energy produced by fusion reactions to generate electricity.Nuclear fusion has huge potential as a long-term energy source that is environmentally responsible (with no carbon emissions) and inherently safe, with abundant and widespread fuel resources (the raw materials are found in seawater and the Earth’s crust).Researchers at Culham are developing a type of fusion reactor known as a ‘tokamak’ – a magnetic chamber in which plasma is heated and controlled. The research is focused on preparing for the international tokamak experiment ITER, now being built in southern France. ITER – due to start up in 2025 – is designed to show that fusion can work on the scale of a power plant, and if successful should lead to electricity from fusion being on the grid by around 2050.Joint European Torus (JET)The Joint European Torus, based at Culham Science Centre, UK, is the central research facility of the European fusion programme. It is the largest and most powerful fusion experiment in the world. JET is collectively used under EUROfusion management by more than 40 European laboratories. JET was the first fusion device to perform controlled nuclear fusion (in 1991), holds the world record for fusion power and is the only tokamak that can test the fusion fuel mix (deuterium and tritium – two isotopes of hydrogen) expected to be used in commercial reactors. Today, its primary task is to prepare for the construction and operation of ITER, acting as a test bed for ITER technologies and plasma operating scenarios.UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA)The UK Atomic Energy Authority carries out fusion energy research on behalf of the UK Government at Culham Science Centre near Abingdon. It is also developing Culham as a location of hi-tech research and business, with around 40 tenant companies now on site.UKAEA oversees Britain’s fusion programme, headed by the MAST Upgrade (Mega Amp Spherical Tokamak) experiment. It also hosts the world’s largest fusion research facility, JET (Joint European Torus), which it operates for European scientists under a contract with the European Commission. Website: www.gov.uk/ukaea Twitter: @fusionenergyEUROfusionEUROfusion’s mission is to pave the way for fusion power reactors.Currently, 30 research organisations and universities from 26 European Union member states plus Switzerland and Ukraine are part of the consortium. In addition, well over 150 universities contribute to the programme. The Consortium has received funding from the Euratom research and training programme 2014-2018 and 2019-2020 under grant agreement No 633053.Website: www.euro-fusion.org Twitter: @fusionincloseup
John Kadlecik will host the Summer Solstice Jam at Gyspsy Sally’s in Washington, DC from June 21st – 24th. The guitarist, who used to play lead guitar with Bob Weir and Phil Lesh’s Grateful Dead spin-off band Furthur, will join forces with keyboardist Melvin Seals, drummer Jay Lane, bassist Robin Sylvester, and backing vocalists Jessica Lake and Mary Lankford for four shows.In addition to co-founding Furthur with Weir and Lesh, Kadlecik also co-founded popular Grateful Dead tribute act Dark Star Orchestra, though he is no longer a member of the band. These days, he plays with the John Kadlecik Band, the Golden Gate Wingmen, and a variety of other projects.Kadlecik won’t be the only person on stage with connections to the Grateful Dead. Seals, who co-founded The Mix with Kadlecik in 2004, performed with the Jerry Garcia Band for over 15 years and continues to play the group’s music with his Melvin Seals and JGB project. Lane—who is also a member of Golden Gate Wingmen—and Sylvester are both current members of Weir’s post-Dead project RatDog (and Lane was even one of the early drummers for Primus).Tickets for the Summer Solstice Jam are now on sale. Fans can expect to hear plenty of jams and tunes from the Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia catalogs. Each night will feature two sets.In related news, Kadlecik was just added to the lineup for the inaugural Waterloo Festival in Austin, TX. He’ll be performing with Oteil & Friends, a group led by Dead & Company bassist Oteil Burbridge.
A completely new creative team has been drafted for the long-in-the-works Disney movie Bob the Musical. Bret Mckenzie, who won an Oscar for penning “Man or Muppet,” has been tapped to write songs for the project and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon is also circling the film. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tom Cruise may headline the comedy, which will be directed by Michel Hazanavicius.It was reported last January that Frozen composing duo Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez would write the music and lyrics for Bob the Musical and that Allan Loeb, who penned the 2012 film adaptation of Rock of Ages, had signed on to write the screenplay.Bob the Musical tells the story of a regular guy (named, uh, Bob) who, after getting hit in the head, can suddenly hear the inner songs sung by the hearts of all of his family and friends. He’s not happy about it, but Bob’s life has become a musical. That all sounds awesome, Disney, but where does Idina Menzel fit in (hey, we can dream, can’t we)?Disney has been brainstorming Bob since 2004, with a variety of composers, directors and writers attached. Adam Shankman, Phil Lord and Chris Miller have also been rumored to be involved with the film throughout the years. View Comments
The first went up in late February, when protesters began sitting in trees near the Appalachian Trail on the West Virginia side of Peters Mountain, in Jefferson National Forest. A month later, several miles away, pipeline opponents raised a monopod atop a fallen tree and tied it to a gate on the Virginia side to block an access road to a pipeline construction site. All three of those actions took place on National Forest land, and they were erected to slow down or stop the company’s plans to bore a hole through the mountain, beneath the federally protected trail.Inspired by the tree sits on Peters Mountain, Red and Minor went up into their respective stands on April 2. Later that month, on the same day I visited Red, another three protesters took to the trees in Franklin County, Virginia, on a farm owned by a couple who have fought the pipeline’s attempts to take portions of her land through eminent domain.Law enforcement blocked access to the monopod on the National Forest road, as well as to Red and Minor’s tree sits on Bent Mountain. Tensions escalated through April. On Sunday the 22nd, two people were arrested after one tried to deliver supplies to the woman living in the monopod. The same day, one of the Peters Mountain tree-sitters voluntarily came down, and the structure was quickly dismantled by pipeline officialsThe tree sits have drawn growing media attention, rallying public support even as opponents fight a parallel battle in the courts and regulatory agencies to stall or stop the pipeline. After a Washington Post story on Red noted that her supporters had been blocked from giving her food and water, Roanoke County police said that once Red and Minor had requested food, it was given to them. Police have given them sandwiches and fruit since then.Stephanie Stallings is arrested and charged with interfering with property rights when she would not move farther away from the limits of disturbance of the Mountain Valley pipeline construction. Photo by Will Solis Snow falls on Red Terry in her tree-sit on Bent Mountain, Virginia. The tree sit was built thirty feet off the ground between two trees to prevent the Mountain Valley Pipeline from being constructed through her property. Photo by Will Solis You can find Red by the campfire smoke and bright yellow crime-scene tape.Red is a 61-year-old Virginia mountain woman who since April 2 has been living in a tree inside the white-and-blue-taped corridor marked out for the interstate Mountain Valley Pipeline. She and her 30-year-old daughter Minor, who is stationed in another tree not far away, are defending their land against what they see as a looming environmental catastrophe.To get to Red’s tree sit, you’ve got to cross wooden boards that cross Bottom Creek numerous times. Water flows all around you, supporting wetland vegetation like skunk cabbage across the property, where the Terry family has lived for seven generations.A judge ruled on Jan. 31, however, that the company may use eminent domain to take land along the pipeline’s 303-mile route from northern West Virginia to southern Virginia. After Red took to the trees, Roanoke County blocked supporters from giving her supplies, and it provided law enforcement officers to supplement MVP’s security guards. The first person I saw at the camp, in fact, was a camouflage-clad guard whose path through the woods helped me figure out where the bridges were.On the morning I visited, at the end of her third week amid the treetops, Red was trying to warm up from below-freezing temperatures the night before. She was a little grumpy after running out of cigarettes, but was as fiery as her nickname suggests.“MVP has not only bought a lot of politicians and our judge, but also our police force,” Red said. “MVP is allowed to tell our cops what to do and what not to do. I don’t think a cop who was allowed to think on their own would have denied me the cigarettes that are down there, and my BC Powders [for headaches] are down there. They’re not allowed to bring me anything up here. I think that it sounds a lot like Hitler and his army, only let’s substitute MVP. MVD is what I like to call them—Mountain Valley Dicks—because they are really screwing with everybody’s property, everybody’s faith, everybody’s water.”Red and her daughter sit to delay the pipeline. To hopefully block it. To protect their land and Bottom Creek, an important stream that flows first into a Nature Conservancy preserve, where it forms a stair-step series of waterfalls known as “The Kettles,” before eventually flowing into the South Fork of the Roanoke River.Red and Minor Terry are two of at least eight people who have taken to the trees to protest construction of the Mountain Valley Pipeline, which is intended to move natural gas from the fracking fields of the Marcellus and Utica shale formations in northern West Virginia, eastward across the Blue Ridge Mountains, and ultimately to East Coast consumers, and perhaps shipment overseas to foreign markets. Both the Mountain Valley Pipeline and the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, its sibling which runs a similar route a couple of hours to the north, were proposed in 2014 and have in recent months received approvals by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and other state and federal environmental and land management agencies.With contractors cutting trees and preparing to dig trenches for the 42-inch-diameter pipes, opponents are closely monitoring the process, but a handful of individuals like Red and Minor are taking more direct action by placing themselves in the pipeline’s path. Besides the mother and daughter, who are camped on family land in Bent Mountain, protesters have taken to trees at three other locations.Roanoke County Police and Virginia State Police stand in a roped off area around Red Terry’s tree-sit, preventing supporters from giving her food, water, and supplies. Photo by Will Solis Natalie Cox, a spokeswoman for the Mountain Valley Pipeline, wrote in an email that the company is committed to “responsible construction” of the pipeline. “We respect opponents’ right to peacefully and lawfully protest. At the same time, however, it is important to note that all work for the MVP project has been authorized by federal and state agencies, and the Virginia DEQ has imposed on MVP the most stringent oversight of a natural gas pipeline project in the department’s history,” Cox wrote.The stand-off on Bent Mountain has become the focal point for media attention, in part because the other tree-sitters remain anonymous. The monopod sitter is known as “Nutty,” but otherwise she has not been identified. Appalachians Against Pipelines declined to respond to questions about the tree-sitters on Peters Mountain, but did direct me to a Facebook post that was written by a tree-sitter and includes this statement: “Each of us in this fight, in a tree or a monopod, or on the ground have our reasons. For me, it’s because Appalachia is my home. The coal industry has already taken from my family and caused pain and grief and resentment that will never go away. I know the MVP will impact families here in Monroe County and other Appalachian communities along its route in similar ways.”Fundraising for Appalachians Against Pipelines is being handled by Rising Tide North America, a grassroots network of groups and individuals who have taken direct action against projects across the world, including in the Philippines and on the Gulf Coast. The Franklin County tree sitters are protesting on a farm owned by Carolyn and Ian Reilly, but their fundraising efforts are linked to Interfaith Alliance for Climate Justice, an environmental stewardship group.Red and Minor might have remained pseudonymous but for the fact they are taking their stand on family land, as well as arrest warrants filed by Roanoke County. Their tree stands are easily accessible from the road, so supporters have flocked from the Roanoke and New River valleys to gather near Red’s tree stand, stay overnight and broadcast dispatches about the situation across social media, especially Facebook.Tree cutters for the Mountain Valley Pipeline cut a swath on the slopes of Poor Mountain in Bent Mountain, Virginia. Photo by Will Solis I could see the appeal during my visit. Camping creates camaraderie, which combined with the righteousness of the cause and the touch of danger from proximity to law enforcement and private security has forged an iron coalition under the banner #StandWithRed. One activist often on site told me the camp even received a recent visit from a local 3 PercenterOn my visit, I spoke to Trish McLawhorn, a Radford woman who has been a regular visitor to the encampment. She has brought her 7-year-old daughter to the site, and they played in the woods and in Bottom Creek, creating an additional connection to the land and the waters that flow through it.“I’ve been telling her about this as it develops,” McLawhorn said. “At first she was sad because the police were here. She wanted to come back and play in the trees and in her fort, and she might not get to do that. Now she just tells me she thinks it’s so great and so brave and courageous, and, ‘When I grow up one day, I might sit in a tree to protect my land.’McLawhorn looked up at Red’s tree stand.“I can’t think of a better legacy for my daughter to watch,” she said. “This may look a little radical to other 61-year-olds, and it is, but I believe that radical is where we are. It’s where we’re living these days.”What you can do to helpThe fight against the Mountain Valley Pipeline and the Atlantic Coast Pipeline have been going on since both projects were announced in 2014.It’s possible that the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality may re-open a comment period to evaluate the pipeline’s impact on individual waterways, but most of the public comment period has passed.Even so, many of the pipeline’s opponents have urged their allies to contact elected officials, both in Congress and state legislatures, but especially Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, in hopes that he may push the DEQ to take more public comment and make a new recommendation regarding the pipeline.Different groups also are training volunteers to monitor construction and post-construction activities along the pipeline route. Trout Unlimited has trained more than 1,000 volunteers in Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia to take water quality samples.“Before any of the stuff gets built, we want to create a baseline, so that as these things are built, we’re able to document if things are happening to water quality,” said David Kinney, eastern policy director for Trout Unlimited. “We can report them to the agencies and get the issues dealt with, and also have this long-term data source.”Trout Unlimited is offering more webinars this spring to prepare volunteers ahead of pipeline construction.Another group, Mountain Valley Watch, is also training for monitoring efforts.“We want to take what seems like an overwhelming scientific project and make it accessible to real people, whether landowners or someone like me, a volunteer just wanting to go out and make sure things aren’t going haywire,” said Russell Chisholm of Newport, Virginia.Sgt. Pascoe of the Roanoke County Police Department tells a group of supporters around Red Terry’s tree-sit that they have to move further back so tree cutters for Mountain Valley Pipeline can continue to cut a path for the pipeline.

LONG PRAIRIE, Minn. – A single demonstration of Cold Fire is all it took to convince Bob Kunz he needed to find out more about the product.His 4K Fire Protection Services is a new IMCA sponsor and making Cold Fire, in liquid and aerosol form, available to drivers and sanctioned tracks alike.“It should be everywhere. If you don’t have it, you should,” Kunz stated. “The fire extinguisher as we know it was designed 70-plus years ago. Racing as we know it now has so many exotic fuels and Cold Fire puts them out. It’s an all-around better product.”National champions in all eight divisions receive a 2-1/2 gallon Cold Fire extinguisher from 4K. The Long Prairie, Minn., company also gives a free 2-1/2 gallon Cold Fire extinguisher to sanctioned tracks for every purchase of the same size extinguisher and five gallons of winter blend Cold Fire concentrate.“The amount of Cold Fire you need to put out a fire is minimal compared with other materials,” said Kunz, who does one of the Cold Fire demonstrations now seen on Youtube. “It’s a clear liquid. It’s not-toxic, non-corrosive and biodegradable. It’s just a better product.”About 10 years ago, a friend had suggested to Kunz – already in a related business – that he look at diversifying. Also a tech inspector for a traveling late model series, Kunz watched a demonstration that showed how quickly Cold Fire worked to extinguish a car fire and decided on the spot that he needed to know more.“We had already been serving commercial customers with fire suppressors and extinguishers. Our business is family owned and operated and we’re all involved in racing,” he explained. “We have been a sponsor at Arlington Raceway but wanted to get the word about Cold Fire out to more drivers and tracks. That’s what led to our program with IMCA.”“My theory is that if you can build a race car, you don’t skimp on safety, especially fire, and Cold Fire should be at the top of your list. If you’re going to skimp on safety, stay home,” Kunz continued. “Being in the business I am, fire protection should always be the first priority. It’s a no-brainer with how much Cold Fire costs.”4K also sells on-board fire suppression systems. Numerous government entities purchase those 4K systems for large equipment use.More information about Cold Fire and other 4K fire suppression systems and extinguishers is available from Kunz at 320 533-0226. The company website is www.4kfire.com.“Safety is paramount for us and we are always looking at products that will keep IMCA drivers safe on and off the track,” IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder said. “We began talking with Bob at 4K Fire Protection and thought a program of this nature was extremely relevant and something we wanted to pursue.”
Skaneateles continued to move the ball at will during the second quarter, with Musso nearly matching the school record-tying seven TD passes he threw two weeks earlier against Holland Patent.Nesbitt caught Musso’s fifth TD strike from 30 yards out and Patrick Herr got his turn with a three-yard scoring pass. Also, Grayson Brunelle ran 10 yards into the end zone just before halftime.Brunelle added a 44-yard TD run in the third quarter, part of a tremendous night where he gained 203 yards on the ground on just 12 carries. Musso was 13-for-18 for 165 yards as Jack Comer added 66 yards on six carries. Tags: footballJordan-ElbridgeskaneatelesWest Genesee As that went on, Jordan-Elbridge shook off a pair of season-opening defeats by claiming its Class C West division opener at John Howes Stadium, pulling away in a 25-6 victory over the Hannibal Warriors.Whatever struggles the Eagles had in the early stages was masked by a string of Hannibal fumbles. Twice, they led to scores for J-E as Alex Pond threw an 12-yard TD pass to Erik Ryan and Luke Pinckney ran four yards for another score.The Warriors did hang on to the ball long enough in the second period to cut J-E’s advantage to 13-6, but a long return by Trent Thomas on the second-half kickoff to the Hannibal 29 set up Pond’s second TD pass to Ryan, this one covering 15 yards.To clinch it, the Eagles covered 60 yards in just four plays in the final period, Pinckney going the final 23 yards for the touchdown. All told, Pinckney gained 83 yards on 13 carries as Pond completed nine of 13 passes for 112 yards.Up in the Class AA ranks, West Genesee was 1-1 going into its league opener against Baldwinsville at Pelcher-Arcaro Stadium, only to have the winless Bees rise up and defeat the Wildcats 20-12.A big moment came early. WG’s defense had B’ville pinned on its own one-yard line. Instead of the ground game, Braden McCard threw 32 yards to Pat May, and the momentum shifted as McCard later scored from one yard out.B’ville’s defense kept the Wildcats quiet until the middle of the second period, when a 40-yard pass from Braeden McNeil to John Benson set up Exavier Brumfield’s one-yard TD plunge..But the Bees blocked the extra point and quickly answered with a drive of its own, McCard ending with a seven-yard scoring toss to Cameron Jessen. The extra point had B’ville in front 14-6, where it stayed at halftime.Late in the third quarter, WG put together another solid drive that McNeil finished by scrambling four yards for a TD. Again, the Bees were able to stop the tying conversion attempt, Pat May tackling Brumfield just before he could dive past the goal lines.So it was 14-12 and, midway through the final period, B’ville moved to the Wildcats’ 30-yard line, where Mike Letizia followed perfect blocks as he dashed to the end zone with 5:35 to play. All told, Letizia ran for 143 yards, a majority of the Bees’ total of 228 yards on the ground.Though the Bees missed the two-point attempt, its defense kept the Wildcats from moving the ball in the final minutes. Having fallen to 1-2, WG is back home next Friday to face Utica Proctor as Skaneateles gets its turn against Hannibal and J-E hosts Cato-Meridian.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Impressive victories over Holland Patent and Canastota landed the Skaneateles football team at no. 2 in the first state Class C rankings of the fall, behind only Section IV’s Susquehanna Valley.And the Lakers sure weren’t going to fall after Friday night’s Homecoming festivities at Hyatt Stadium, where it jumped all over Port Byron/Union Springs with 49 first-half points on the way to defeating the Panthers 63-21.Four different times in the first quarter, the Lakers found the end zone, each time with a James Musso touchdown pass, the longest going 35 yards to Max Wamp as Nick Wamp caught a pair of four-yard scoring passes and Musso connected with Cody Nesbitt from 15 yards out.
