From NPR News in Washington, I'm Craig Windham.

 

Russia's president says Russian forces will begin withdrawing in Georgia tomorrow back to positions held before fighting broke out last week. Defense Secretary Robert Gates says he expects some stalling. But he says such tactics could further damage Russia's relationships with the US and other nations. "The longer they take to get out and to observe the cease-fire that's been declared and the arrangements that have been worked out, I think the greater those consequences will be.” Gates was on ABC's This Week. He said no decision has been made yet about whether to block Russia from joining the World Trade Organization or removing it from the Group of Eight Major Industrialized Nations. NPR's Ivan Watson says work crews in Georgia spent today scrambling to repair a vital railway that leads to the country's capital.

 

I'm walking on the large concrete and steel train bridge, which was sabotaged on Saturday by a huge explosion which blew out a 20-foot span at the bridge over a river. In a flash, that helped a blockade of the Georgian capital because on the parallel east-west highway nearby, Russian soldiers are standing there. They're blocking vehicular traffic completely. Moscow has denied any responsibility for this explosion as act of sabotage, but the timing is very suspicious.

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama has been talking up his economic proposals today and criticizing his GOP rival for opposing tax credits for entrepreneurs trying to develop renewable energy sources. Obama was speaking at an event in Reno, Nevada, as Willy Obright of member station KXJC reports.


Obama told 250 supporters that rival Senator John McCain's economic policies represent more of the same, and that his own plan is sound. "I've got news for John McCain. My plan's not gonna bring about economic disaster. We already have economic disaster from John McCain's President George W. Bush. " Before this appearance, Obama met with oil baron T. Boone Pickens to discuss strategies for developing alternative energy. Many Nevadans favor renewable energy because the state may host a nuclear waste dump at Yucca Mountain near Las Vegas. For NPR News, I'm Willy Obright in Reno, Nevada.


Tropical Storm Fay is on a track that will take it into the Florida Keys by early Tuesday. Forecasters say Fay could be at hurricane strength by then. Tourists have been ordered to leave the Keys. Residents have been told to keep a close watch on the storm. Craig Fugate is Florida's emergency management director. "These storms don't have to be this deadly, if people will just use some commonsense, stay inside and follow those local directions and those evacuation orders.” Fugate said shelters have been open/ to handle any evacuation from the Keys.

Constantina Tomescu, a 38-year-old mother from Romania, easily won the gold medal in the Olympic marathon in Beijing. But the real race was for the silver. NPR's Frank Langfitt reports from Beijing.

 

Tomescu took the lead midway through the race and never gave it up. She won it about two hours and twenty-six minutes. That was twenty seconds ahead of the next finisher, Catherine Ndereba of Kenya. Ndereba was in second place on the final lap in the Bird's Nest, then China's Zhou Chunxiu pulled ahead, but Zhou made her move too soon. Ndereba passed Zhou later and held on to win silver by one one hundredth of a second. World record holder Paula Radcliffe had to stop toward the end of the race to stretch her calf. Radcliffe who’s recovering from a stress fracture finished 23rd. She said it was better to be here than watching the race back home in England. Frank Langfitt, NPR News, Beijing.


An earthen dam that had been weakened by heavy rains in Arizona last night gave way today near the Grand Canyon. That dam-break flooded a tribal village as well as a number of campgrounds in the canyon. Sherry Collins is the county's emergency management director. "We're conducting, um, precautionary evacuations of the residents and campers in the campground. They are right now in Supai village area. " Collins says about 400 members of the Havasupai tribe were evacuated, along with dozens of campers as well as some river runners. Helicopters from the National Guard, the National Park Service, and the Arizona Department of Public Safety were used to airlift people out of the canyon. Most of the evacuees were taken to a Red Cross shelter.

ON 天道酬勤

From NPR News in Washington, I'm Craig Windham.

Russia's president says Russian forces will begin withdrawing in Georgia tomorrow back to positions held before fighting broke out last week. Defense Secretary Robert Gates says he expects some stalling. But he says such tactics could further damage Russia's relationships with the US and other nations. "The longer they take to get out and to observe the cease-fire that's been declared and the arrangements that have been worked out, I think the greater those consequences will be. " Gates was on ABC's This Week". He said no decision has been made yet about whether to block Russia from joining the World Trade Organization or removing it from the Group of Eight major industrialized nations. NPR's Ivan Watson says work crews in Georgia spent the days scrambling to repair a vital railway that leads to the country's capital.


I'm walking on the large concrete and steel train bridge, which was sabotaged on Saturday by a huge explosion which blew out a 20-foot span at the bridge over a river. In a flash, that held a blockade of the Georgian capital because on the parallel east-west highway nearby, Russian soldiers were standing there. They're blocking vehicular traffic completely. Moscow has denied any responsibility for this explosion as an act of sabotage, but the timing is very suspicious.

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama has been talking out his economic proposals today and criticizing his GOP rival for opposing tax credits for entrepreneurs trying to develop renewable energy sources. Obama was speaking at an event in Reno, Nevada, as Willy Obright of member station KXJC reports.


Obama told 250 supporters that rival Senator John McCain's economic policies represent more of the same, and that his own plan is sound. "I've got news for John McCain. My plan's not going to bring about economic disaster. We already have economic disaster from John McCain's President George W. Bush. " Before this appearance, Obama met with oil baron T. Boone Pickens to discuss strategies for developing alternative energy. Many Nevadans favor renewable energy because the state may host the nuclear waste dumped at Yucca Mountain near Las Vegas. For NPR News, I'm Willy Obright in Reno, Nevada.


Tropical Storm Fay is on a track that will take it into the Florida Keys by early Tuesday. Forecasters say Fay could be a hurricane strength by then. Tourists have been ordered to leave the Keys. Residents have been told to keep a close watch on the storm. Craig Fugate is Florida's emergency management director. "These storms don't have to be this deadly, if people will just use some commonsense, stay inside and follow those local directions and those evacuation orders. " Fugate said shelters have been opened to handle any evacuation from the Keys.

Constantina Tomescu, a 38-year-old mother from Romania, easily won the gold medal in the Olympic marathon in Beijing. But the real race was for the silver. NPR's Frank Langfitt reports from Beijing.

Tomescu took the lead midway through the race and never gave it up. She won in about two hours and twenty-six minutes. That was twenty seconds ahead of the next finisher, Catherine Ndereba of Kenya. Ndereba was in second place on the final lap in the Bird's Nest, then China's Zhou Chunxiu pulled ahead, but Zhou made her move too soon. Ndereba passed Zhou later and held on to win silver by one one hundredth of a second. World record holder Paula Radcliffe had to stop toward the end of the race just stretched her calf. Radcliffe who was recovering from a stress fracture finished 23rd. She said it was better to be here than watching the race back home in England. Frank Langfitt, NPR News, Beijing.


An earthen dam that had been weakened by heavy rains in Arizona last night gave way today near the Grand Canyon. That dam break flooded a tribal village as well as a number of campgrounds in the canyon. Sherry Collins is the county's emergency management director. "We're conducting, (em) precautionary evacuations of the residents and campers in the campground. They are right now in Supai village area. " Collins says about 400 members of the Havasupai tribe were evacuated, along with / dozens of campers as well as some river runners. Helicopters from the National Guard, the National Park Service, and the Arizona Department of Public Safety were used to airlift people out of the canyon. Most of the evacuees were taken to a Red Cross shelter.

关于 Yucca Mountain

Yucca Mountain nuclear waste repository

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

  
Yucca Mountain
Yucca Mountain

Yucca Mountain Repository is the proposed U.S. Department of Energy deep geological repository storage facility for spent nuclear reactor fuel and other radioactive waste. The repository is located in a desert on federal land adjacent to the Nevada Test Site in Nye County, Nevada, about 80 miles from the Las Vegas metropolitan area. The repository lies within Yucca Mountain(内华达州约卡山), a ridge line in the south-central part of the U.S. state of Nevada. The ridge is composed of volcanic material (mostly tuff) ejected from a now-extinct caldera-forming supervolcano.

 

The idea of storing radioactive waste in Yucca Mountain is controversial. Opponents argue that climate, erosion, earthquakes, and other natural forces would make it an unstable and unsuitable place for storage. The Department of Energy was to begin accepting spent fuel at the Yucca Mountain Repository by January 31, 1998 but has yet to do so because of a series of delays due to legal challenges, allegations of fraudulent geologic analysis, concerns over how to transport nuclear waste to the facility, and political pressures resulting in underfunding of the construction. There is currently no official date set for opening the facility.

 

The US Department of Energy (DoE) has submitted a license application to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for the construction.[1] The preliminary process of checking over and 'docketing' the application will take until late 2008, and NRC then has a statute timetable to complete its safety analysis and public hearings. The earliest estimated date for starting construction is 2013. The Office of Civilian Radioactive Waste Management's current projected completion date for the project is 2017, but even if the NRC's review of the project goes well, the future of Yucca Mountain would still depend on the political climate in the USA. Congress voted to cut the project's FY2008 budget from $494 million to $390 million, the lowest award since 2002, when the Yucca Mountain site was approved, and continuing a four-year trend in which awards have been significantly below the amounts requested by DoE.[1]

People

We are Havasu 'Baaja. Currently our tribe is comprised of about 650 enrolled tribal members. Approximately 450 people live here in Supai. Our native language, Havasupai, is our preferred way to communicate. It has been a written language for about 20 years. We are very resourceful people and proud of our beautiful land.

History

Our people have lived in the area for many hundreds of years. Prior to the early 1800's, when the Grand Canyon area was made into a national park, our people roamed a vast area on the upper plateau. During the fall and winter months, we would move our families up to the plateau regions subsisting by hunting and gathering what the earth provided. During the spring and summer months, we moved back to the canyon and planted gardens.

When the reservation was created in 1882, the federal government confined us to the 518 acres at the bottom of the canyon and we lost almost 90% of our aboriginal land. This loss of the economic base had a major influence on our culture, forcing us to rely more on farming and seeking wage labor outside of the canyon. Eventually the Tribe began to rely on tourism, as people found their way to our beautiful homeland. In 1975, Congress reallocated 185,000 acres of our original hunting grounds back to the tribe.

Community

Tourism provides the main economic base providing jobs in the various tribal-run enterprises such as the lodge, tourist office and café. Federal programs run by the Tribe provide most of the available jobs. Many people support their families by packing supplies. Most of us purchase our supplies out of the canyon and bring them in on horseback or by helicopter.

We are governed by a seven member Tribal Council which is elected to office by the people. The Bureau of Indian Affairs provides law enforcement services to the villages. Possession of alcohol, drugs, or firearms is illegal. Our people do not receive any government stipends and we pay income taxes just like all Americans. A small Christian church offers services on Sunday. The Indian Health Service clinic and resident physician provide out-patient and emergency services.
