Would that be bragging rights or not...being the last RO or SRO licenced at VY?

Operator Knowledge and Performance
a. Examination Scope
On February 14, 2014, the facility training staff proctored the administration of the written examination to all applicants. The licensee staff graded the written examinations, analyzed the results, and presented their analysis to the NRC on February 21, 2014.
The NRC examination team administered the various portions of the operating examination to the applicants on February 11-12 and March 24-25, 2014. Each applicant participated in at least two dynamic simulator scenarios and in a control room and facilities walkthrough test consisting of five system tasks, and an administrative test consisting of five administrative tasks.
b. Findings
All applicants passed all parts of the operating test and written examination.

The Board and those present and those watching it on BCTV all saw it.
Why not ask Entergy/VY exactly if they remember what Tuesday it was that they did their slide show and talk presentation before the Brattleboro Board of Selectmen on the reactor and its alleged 'safety'. It was the only such one they did in those years 2005-2008. Then I can ask BCTV if they still have the video of it.
The Selectboard notes are not all searchable online, and the spotty notes they have show that they didn't transcribe Every friggin thing said in them anyhow.
They said in their presentation that a Chernobyl cannot happen here, that it (the Mark I in Vernon) is a much safer design and promised that it would be extremely unlikely to have a meltdown.-That alone was a big f*ing lie that they simply parroted from GE corporate BS, the company that ignored their very own designers of the lemon reactor and blackballed them in the industry, and still lies about the 'safety' of it.

I've already given the best documentation reference for the Mark I being a lemon of a design and susceptible to meltdowns -- the 'GE Three' whistleblowers themselves and what they said decades ago, which turned out to be a great warning unheeded and to the detriment of us all.

ewe must have been watching FOX when they had that semi-rare moment of truth from their reporter Shepard Smith...

Fox News Anchor Shepard Smith says: "Radiation from the Fukushima nuclear meltdown in Japan has crossed the ocean and has landed close to North America — the gift from Japan that keeps on giving."

^Shepard also said "What a fantastical incredible lie, that we knew at the time we were getting* but simply could not prove."
*-getting from Nukescum Inc. that is

-the Japs didn't design the Lemon reactor, GE did, and helped with it's instalation and operation and encouraged building several of them together there, right by the seashore with no Tsunami wall, and right upon a major faultline
that's not mere incompetance but sheer insanity!

-ppfffffffffffttt! riiiiight, that's why several nuclear engineers have spoken out saying that a Fukushima can easily happen here, and the former head of the friggin NRC Jaczko even said that most ALL of the reactors in the US are ticking time bombs!
and that one in Vernon never had any problems did it!?
No problems with such BWRs?

Fukushima: Mark 1 Nuclear Reactor Design Caused GE Scientist To Quit In Protest
ABC News, March 15, 2011
http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/fukushima-mark-...
^Thirty-five years ago, Dale G. Bridenbaugh and two of his colleagues at General Electric resigned from their jobs after becoming increasingly convinced that the nuclear reactor design they were reviewing -- the Mark 1 -- was so flawed it could lead to a devastating accident.
Questions persisted for decades about the ability of the Mark 1 to handle the immense pressures that would result if the reactor lost cooling power, and today that design is being put to the ultimate test in Japan. Five of the six reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi plant, which has been wracked since Friday's earthquake with explosions and radiation leaks, are Mark 1s.

-yup, for fighting off the gremlins and keeping our nukes safe. well, except the ones we stupidly had the Japs build in one of the world's worst spots to put nukes, which were Lemons to begin with.
In a just government there would be no double standard/hypocrisy crony fascist corporatism allowed, nuke owners would be treated like the Bundy ranchers are being treated and the federal branch wouldn't be claiming to 'own' 85% of Nevada, a State that didn't even exist nor did unlawful agencies like the BLM, when the Bundy family ranch began in the 1870s, and family farms would be king not G-d Monsanto and sell-out politico insiders like the Reid's would be hung like cattle rustlers used to be, nukescum who make our environment/land, Pacific ocean! etc. unsafe, polluted and ruined for our species would be hung upside down a special slow death way with honey and fireants

.
anyway, here's some stuff to check out mikey...>
The New York Times reported that other government officials warned about the dangers inherent in GE’s Mark 1 design:
In 1972, Stephen H. Hanauer, then a safety official with the Atomic Energy Commission, recommended that the Mark 1 system be discontinued because it presented unacceptable safety risks. Among the concerns cited was the smaller containment design, which was more susceptible to explosion and rupture from a buildup in hydrogen — a situation that may have unfolded at the Fukushima Daiichi plant. Later that same year, Joseph Hendrie, who would later become chairman of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, a successor agency to the atomic commission, said the idea of a ban on such systems was attractive. But the technology had been so widely accepted by the industry and regulatory officials, he said, that “reversal of this hallowed policy, particularly at this time, could well be the end of nuclear power.”
This faulty design has made the Fukushima disaster much worse.
Specifically, the several reactors exploded … scattering clumps of radioactive fuel far and wide.
In addition, the Mark 1 included an absolutely insane design element: storing huge quantities of radioactive fuel rods 100 feet up in the air.

[/QUOTE]

not exactly as such, I admit. but then if I did, and I had helped design the GE Mark I, I no doubt would have joined the 'GE Three' and today they'd be known as the 'GE Four'. And I'm pretty sure that if I was involved in siting a nuke plant I would have inquired about the seismic history of an area and been firmly against siting one pretty much Anywhere around Japan Especially by the sea due to the tsunamic history!

"This was unexpected, and now, scientists think, it could happen elsewhere. No subduction zone is safe from a megaquake."
www.livescience.com/27776-tohoku-two-years-la...

"Indeed, the Tohoku quake may have been the final nail in the coffin for a dying concept: that faults produce the same size earthquake every time, and that they are regular, repeatable and predictable. "

[gee, faulty problematic reactors combined with ages old quake-busy land right on the Ring of Fire combined with being right by the sea and no real protector wall etc. etc., and throw in some more technical human errors including the ones in handling it immediately afterward--sure seems like things that wouldn't have all occurred if those who really have the 'idea' of how to build and site and run nukes were actual professional experts]

here's another pertinent one from GlobalResearch.ca -->

Why the Obama Administration Will Not Admit that Fukushima Radiation is Poisoning Americans
Why isn’t GE being held accountable?

The fact that the CEO of GE works for Obama just highlights the facts. There is no way that Immelt doesn’t know about all the warning his company was given about the design flaws of the Mark 1; and if he knows, the government knows.
Ask yourself this, why after such a monumental event are all the scientific papers regarding the disaster singing the same song?
It is impossible to have so many scientists and doctors agreeing to this level. Nothing has been published regarding the increased rates of miscarriage and childhood thyroid cancers. Why is that?
After Chernobyl there was a plethora of papers announcing to the world the increased cancer risks, the risks to pregnant women and young children. I suggest that because Chernobyl was in Russia, a place where no American technology was used, that there was no suppression of the facts.
GE cannot afford a corporate law suit, and neither can the Obama administration. It wouldn’t be pretty if a senior advisor to the president was hauled through the courts. There’s a chance it would not just be GE that went down in the wake of such a case.
GE will not have put anything into this ‘pot’ to cover Fukushima, as it is not in the United States. They have walked away, even though they knew their reactors have design faults.
The President of the United States knows that the radiation from Fukushima is worse than it would have been had the reactors used at the plant been of a different design.
Known to the US government, the delicate and hazardous task of removing and storing the spent fuel rods is going to take years, and that one mistake can exacerbate the problems ten-fold.
23 sites in America are using the same flawed reactors and the government is doing nothing about it.

OK, today girls and boys we're taking a look at Fuktupshita. It's in a land far away, but guess what kids- radiation knows no boundaries. And just like the tortoise in The Tortoise And The Hare eventually crossed the finish line, we're in for a big radtastic wave coming our way that could get waaaaay worse.

Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Site layout

The plant is on a bluff which was originally 35 meters above sea level. During construction, however, TEPCO lowered the height of the bluff by 25 meters. One reason for lowering the bluff was to allow the base of the reactors to be constructed on solid bedrock in order to mitigate the threat posed by earthquakes. Another reason was the lowered height would keep the running costs of the seawater pumps low. TEPCO's analysis of the tsunami risk when planning the site's construction determined that the lower elevation was safe because the sea wall would provide adequate protection for the maximum tsunami assumed by the design basis. However, the lower site elevation did increase the vulnerability for a tsunami larger than anticipated in design.[22]
/\
Operating history
The plant reactors came online one at a time beginning in 1970 and the last in 1979. From the end of 2002 through 2005, the reactors were among those shut down for a time for safety checks due to the TEPCO data falsification scandal.[27][28] On Feb 28, 2011 TEPCO submitted a report to the Japanese Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency admitting that the company had previously submitted fake inspection and repair reports. The report revealed that TEPCO failed to inspect more than 30 technical components of the six reactors, including power boards for the reactor's temperature control valves, as well as components of cooling systems such as water pump motors and emergency power diesel generators.[29] In 2008, the IAEA warned Japan that the Fukushima was built using outdated safety guidelines, and could be a "serious problem" during a large earthquake.[30] The warning led to the building of an emergency response center in 2010, used during the response to the 2011 nuclear accident.[30][31]

On April 5, 2011, TEPCO vice president Takashi Fujimoto announced that the company was canceling plans to build Reactors No. 7 and 8.[32][33]
/\
Warnings and design critique
In 1990, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) ranked the failure of the emergency electricity generators and subsequent failure of the cooling systems of plants in seismically very active regions one of the most likely risks. The Japanese Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA) cited this report in 2004. According to Jun Tateno, a former NISA scientist, TEPCO did not react to these warnings and did not respond with any measures.[35]

Filmmaker Adam Curtis mentioned the risks of the type of boiling water reactors cooling systems such as those in Fukushima I,[36] and claimed the risks were known since 1971[37] in a series of documentaries in the BBC in 1992 and advised that PWR type reactors should have been used.

Fukushima had been warned their seawall was insufficient to withstand a powerful tsunami, but the seawall height was not raised in response.
