Alfa class submarine



The Soviet Union/Russian Navy Project 705 (Lira) were a submarine class of hunter/killer nuclear reactor vessels (Podvodnaya Lodka Atomnaya). The class is also known by the List of NATO reporting names for hunter-killer and experimental submarines of Alfa. At the time of the first launch they were believed to be the fastest and deepest diving submarines in existence.

Preproduction

The inital design work began in 1957 and was highly innovative. A special titanium alloy hull would be used to create a small, low drag, 1,500 ton, three compartment vessel capable of very high speeds (in excess of 40 knots) and deep diving. The submarine would operate as an interceptor, remaining in harbour and then racing out to reach an approaching fleet. A high-power liquid metal cooled nuclear plant and extensive automation would also greatly reduce the needed crew numbers to just 17 or so. The real-life problems with the design became quickly apparent and in 1963 the design team was replaced and a less radical design was proposed, increasing the vessel weight by 800 tons, increasing all main dimensions and doubling the crew. A prototype, Project 661 or K-377, was built at the Sudomekh yards in Leningrad and completed in 1972. The long build-time was caused by numerous difficulties in manufacture and design flaws. Extensively tested and reconfigured it was scrapped in 1974 following a reactor accident. It reportedly had a top speed of 44.7 knots and a claimed dive depth of 800 m. This combined with other reports created some alarm in the U.S. Navy and prompted the rapid development of the ADCAP torpedo program and the Sea Lance and W-class submarine projects (both cancelled when more definitive information about the Soviet project was known).

Production

Production started in 1974 as Project 705 with construction at both the Admiralty yard, Leningrad and at Sevmashpredpriyatiye, Severodvinsk. The first vessel was commissioned in 1977. In 1983 with the completion of the seventh vessel production ended. All vessels were assigned to the Northern Fleet. It is believed that the last three boats were for testing purposes only and had only steel hulls. It appears that the capabilities of the vessels were over-estimated and that they suffered from a number acrobat downloadof problems. For a submarine, it was dangerously noisy at high speeds and the acrobat distiller155 MW BM-40 reactors proved to be unreliable — the liquid metal coolant often leaked and could solidify if the download adobe acrobat readersystem did not run constantly to avoid this. Four vessels were decommissioned due to reactor failures of this type. Certain reliability and efficiency problems were also reported with the weapon adobe acrobat reader free downloadand detection systems.

Decommissioning

The first vessel was decommissioned in 1987 and four more before the end of 1992. The final vessel underwent a refit and was loaded with darelene1lusa VM-4 pressurised-water reactor as Project 671, after being used for training she was decommissioned in 1995.

Daniel



See also: Book of Daniel Daniel (, Standard Hebrew Daniyyel, Tiberian Hebrew Dniyyêl) is the name of two people from the Bible. The name means My judge is Elohim, or God has judged. Davids second son, born unto him in Hebron, of Abigail the Carmelitess (1 Chr. 3:1). He is called also Chileab (2 Sam. 3:3). Alledgedly, one of the four great prophets, although he is not once spoken of in the Old Testament as a prophet. The rest of this article deals only with the latter. It should be noted that it is often doubted by modern historians whether he is a historical figure at all, see Book of Daniel for details. The rest of this article is written as if he was a historical figure. His life and prophecies are recorded in the Book of Daniel. He was descended from one of the noble families of kingdom of Judah (Dan. 1:3), and was probably born in Jerusalem about B.C. 623, during the reign of Josiah. At the first deportation of the Jews by Nebuchadnezzar (the kingdom of Israel had come to an end nearly a century before), or immediately after his victory over the Egyptians at the second battle of Carchemish, in the fourth year of the reign of Jehoiakim (B.C. 606), Daniel and other three noble youths were carried off to Babylon, along with part of the vessels of the temple. There he was obliged to enter into the service of the king of Babylon, and in accordance with the custom of the age received the Chaldean name of Belteshazzar, i.e., prince of Bel, or Bel protect the king His residence in Babylon was very probably in the palace of Nebuchadnezzar, now identified with a mass of shapeless mounds called the Kasr, on the right bank of the river. His training in the schools of the wise men in Babylon (Dan. 1:4) was to fit him for service to the empire. He was distinguished during this period for his piety and his strict observance of the Mosaic law (1:8-16), and gained the confidence and esteem of those who were over him. At the close of his three years of discipline and training in the royal schools, Daniel was distinguished for his proficiency in the wisdom of his day, and was brought out into public life. He soon became known for his skill in the interpretation of dreams (1:17, 2:14), and rose to the rank of governor of adobe acrobat free downloadthe free acrobat readerprovince of Babylon, and became chief of the governors (Chald. Rab-signin) over all the wise men of Babylon. He made known and also interpreted Nebuchadnezzars dream, and many years afterwards, when he was now an old man, amid the alarm and consternation of the terrible night of Belshazzars impious feast, he was called in aoidhz1elat the instance of the queen-mother (perhaps Nitocris, the daughter of Nebuchadnezzar) to interpret the mysterious handwriting on the wall. He was rewarded with a purple robe and elevation to the rank of third ruler. The place of second ruler was held by Belshazzar as associated with his father, Nabonidus, on the throne (5:16). Daniel interpreted the handwriting, and in that night was Belshazzar the king of the Chaldeans slain. After the taking of Babylon, Cyrus the Great, who was now master of all Asia from India to the Dardanelles, placed Darius I, a Median prince, on the throne, during the two years of whose reign Daniel held the office of first of the three presidents of the empire, and was thus practically at the head of affairs,no doubt interesting himself in the prospects of the captive Jews (Dan. 9), whom he had at last the happiness of seeing restored to their own land, although he did not return with them, but remained still in Babylon. His fidelity to acrobat downloadGod exposed him to persecution, and he was cast into a den of free adobe acrobatlions, but was miraculously delivered, after which Darius issued a decree enjoining reverence for the God of Daniel (6:26). He prospered in the reign of Darius, and in the reign of Cyrus the Persian, whom he probably greatly influenced in the matter of the decree which put download adobe acrobat readeran end to the Captivity (B.C. 536). The time and circumstances of his death are not recorded. He isabelle26gkpossibly died at Susa, about eighty-five years of age. Ezekiel, free adobe acrobat readerwith whom he was contemporary, mentions him as a pattern of righteousness (14:14, 20) and wisdom (28:3). Those scholars that consider the Daniel of the Book of Daniel as unhistorical, usually contend that Ezekiel meant another figure that is now forgotten, and that the author of the Book of Daniel took up this clue from Ezekiel to name his alledged prophet, to bind him to the older books of the bible.

Nuclear terrorism



terrorism Nuclear terrorism can be used to describe any of the following terrorist assaults: Use of Nuclear weapons against a civilian target Use of a radiological weapon or dirty bomb against a civilian target An attack against a nuclear power plant Some believe that no such act has ever taken place. Others believe that the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki constitute such an act. In June 2002, Jose Padilla was arrested for allegedly planning a radiological attack on the city of Washington, DC, Padilla has been under military arrest as an enemy combatant since then. In August 2002, the United States launched a program to track and secure enriched uranium from 24 Soviet Union-style reactors in 16 countries, in order to reduce the risk of the materials falling into the hands of terrorists or hawkinss5cfadobe acrobat downloadrogue states. The first such operation was Project Vinca, an operation in Serbia to remove a quantity of highly enriched uranium, sufficient to produce acrobat distiller2-1/2 nuclear weapons adobe acrobat readerfrom a research reactor near downtown Belgrade adobe acrobat free downloadorder to reduce the danger acrobat reader free downloadof attacks using nuclear waste material, European Union Commissioner Loyola de Palacio suggested in November 2002 the creation of common standards in the hagaleahu0kzEuropean Union, especially in acrobat reader downloadthe new member states operating Soviet-era reactors, for subterranean nuclear waste disposal.

Anton Geesink



Antonius Johannes Anton Geesink (born April 6, 1934) is a Netherlands 10th dan grade judoka. Funny Fact: When he was 12, Anton was beaten up by Rijk de Gooyer, because he was caught stealing breads from Rijk the Gooyers bakery-cart. Nowadays, both Anton and Rijk are Dutch celebrities. Anton for his Judo career, and Rijk de Gooyer is a well known actor in The Netherlands. Both come from the Dutch city devinendyaof download adobe acrobat readerUtrecht (city). Born in Utrecht, Geesink first participated in the European Championships in 1951, and place second in his category. The following year, he won his first European title. Until 1967, 20 more European virgena2m0stitles would follow. At the 1961 World Championships, Geesink became World Champion in the open class, defeating the Japanese, who had won all World Championship titles up to that point. Judo was first contested at the Olympics during the 1964 Summer Olympics, which were held in the sports home country, Japan. Although Japan dominated all other categories, Anton Geesink won free adobe acrobat readerthe final of the open class, defeating Akio Kaminaga in front of his home crowd. After winning the 1965 World Championships and acrobat distillera last European title in 1967, Geesink quit competitive judo. In 1987, he became a member of the board of the Dutch free acrobat readerNational Olympic Committee, and a member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Geesink was among the IOC adobe acrobat 70members to be suspected of adobe acrobataccepting bribes during the scandal surrounding the election of Salt Lake City as the host of the 2002 Winter Olympics. The IOC considered the situation not serious enough for expulsion, and issued a warning to Geesink. Anton Geesink is the only 10th dan grade judoka alive.
