THORIUM

As far as fissile materials are concerned, nuclear energy, especially based on Th^232, is increasingly being seen as the way out. 1,000 kg of Th can produce as much energy as 200,000 kgs of U^235 or 3,500,000, 000 kilos of a highly polluting fossil fuel like coal. So, the calorific output of thorium is much higher. India is the world leader in thorium-based fuels. In February, 2014, BARC (Bhabha Atomic Research Centre), in Mumbai, presented their latest design for a "next-generation nuclear reactor" that will burn thorium as its fuel ore. Once built, with a target date of 2016, they estimate that the reactor could function without an operator for 120 days.

Incidentally, Dr Homi Bhabha, the architect of India's nuclear industry, had, as far back as 1950, envisaged a plan of making the switch from U to Th.

BTW, nuclear physicist, Dr Homi Bhabha, is an alum of Mumbai's elite Cathedral School. Proud.

Hi HUGH,

You said that your wife does not have sexy legs but has a "good looking" face, right?

Is her face as "good-looking" as Oprah Winfrey's face?

No, you don't get it. Nature has many laws. Nature has many facets. Just because one facet of nature is different from another facets of nature does not require it to be labeled abnormal--because it occurs over and over again. So, why should the less prevalent facet be relegated to a lower level of life?

Natural laws are a mix of normal and abnormal events.

Humans and animals have both uplifting and abnormal facets to their personalities.

No one would label a man who talks, walks, applies mascara and dresses like a woman normal.

Just as no one would call a cancer patient normal or just as no one would call a person with thieving instincts normal, similarly, a homosexual is abnormal where sexual orientation/procreation is concerned.

Why, the law of unlikes attracting is visible even at the atomic scale.

If he wants to believe in his fairy tale, let him be. But he has no right to assume that others have to believe in it as well. So far, his only argument against homosexuality is based upon his religion. Which others do not share, nor should they have to.

Bullshxt, with all due respect, as always!

I know he didn't ask me to share his fantasy. Regardless.

I'm tired of people using religion to justify ignorance and hatred.

He has a right to believe it. And I have a right to question it. And even ridicule
it as he does to gays (an eye for an eye, correct? according to your testament)

At least I'm not treating him the way the Messianics are treated in Israel.

After all they're only practicing their religion, which tells them to "spread the word."

They are practicing free speech and being met with violence. Is this just?

HUGH,

Please come online. I know that you're lurking in the background.

How's your CEO job going?

Are you still teaching a scientific discipline to undergrad/grad students at the Jamaican University?

Have you cleared your mounting debts?

Have you repaired the leaking tin roof of your shack?

How many cruffs have you converted to Christianity?

How many boyfriends do you have?

Have you stopped visiting public toilets to take a peek at exposed dicks - a bad habit of yours which you accidentally revealed 3 years ago on the Allah thread?

Have you graduated from a Subaru to a Merc?

Have you replaced your $ 50 solar watch with a classy Patek Philippe?

Has your Versace pret a porter suit been replaced by Armani haute wear?

Has your cracked skull healed?

Has your spectacle number increased making you as blind as a bat?

Wow, into stereotypes much? What is normal is what occurs on a regular basis. There are all types of normal. Is it abnormal to want to marry the one that you love?

US stocks rise after Fed move; record finish for Dow
Kate Gibson [email protected]

CNBC.com

U.S. stocks rose on Wednesday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average hitting its first record close of the year, as Wall Street welcomed a further reduction in the Federal Reserve's monthly bond purchases while looking past data showing the economy slowed more than expected in the first quarter.

"Who would imagine we would get a first-quarter GDP print so disappointing and yet we're closing the stock market at a high. That shows investors are absolutely looking past the first quarter, and looking to the Fed to continue with lower rates," said Chris Gaffney, senior market strategist at Everbank..

what exactly were you reacting to? My post or Huggs fantasy?

I basically said
1) he had a right to believe in what he wants to believe
2) as long as he didnt discriminate against others by assuming others accepted those belief (in lieu of actual law of the land)

No, you're wrong.

It's "normal" for approx. 4% of the population to be gay.

Normal and expected. Predictable in most any random sample large enough to be valid.

In probability theory, the normal (or Gaussian) distribution is a very commonly occurring continuous probability distribution—a function that tells the probability that any real observation will fall between any two real limits or real numbers, as the curve approaches zero on either side. Normal distributions are extremely important in statistics and are often used in the natural and social sciences for real-valued random variables whose distributions are not known.[1][2]

Oh, you mean animal attraction.

Anyone is free to marry anyone provided, where straight marriages are concerned, incest/inbreeding is avoided.

I wonder why gays want to exchange rings and have babies through invitro methods when they're clearly incapable of making babies via man-woman sexual intercourse and besides why don't they stop pause to think of the psychological impact that rearing kids in a gay atmosphere would involve when clearly kids develop best in a heterosexual environment free of friction brought about by personality mismatch between husband and wife. Kids need both father and mother for healthy mind-emotion growth with each parent contributing his/her unique gender-based inputs.

Why don't gays simply accept their condition and stop imitating straight couples where marriage, procreation and parenting are concerned.

Anyway, I wish gays well so long as they don't make a nuisance of themselves by expecting everyone to bend over backwards to condone their abnormality.

HughBe---HughBe--- Let me REPEAT myself for the millionth time, I am fine with homosexuals as PEOPLE or my fellowman. However, I DISAGREE with their SEXUAL practice.

Do YOU agree with every behaviour of HOMOSEXUALS?

Frijoles---I have no problem with gay people having sex, or expressing emotion to each other. Its not my thing (i.e. I dont have gay inclinations), but to each their own and I wish them well..

HughBe--- When will you ever learn to answer simple questions. So once again, do YOU agree with every behaviour of HOMOSEXUALS?

Hint: pay attention to the word BEHAVIOUR. Do you understand what it means, Einstein?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Two-Spirit

Two-spirit people (also two spirit or twospirit) is a modern umbrella term used by some indigenous North Americans for gender-variant individuals within their communities. Non-Native anthropologists have historically used the term berdaches /b&#601;r&#712;dæ& #643;&#616;z/ for individuals who fulfill one of many mixed gender roles in First Nations and Native American tribes, but this term has more recently fallen out of favour.

Third and fourth gender roles historically embodied by two-spirit people include performing work and wearing clothing associated with both men and women. Some tribes consider there to be at least four gender identities: masculine men, feminine men, masculine women, and feminine women. The presence of male two-spirits "was a fundamental institution among most tribal peoples."[1] According to Will Roscoe, male and female two-spirits have been "documented in over 130 North America tribes, in every region of the continent."[2]
