That link is completely bogus. The guy has a PhD in business economics (!), and his only qualification in atomic energy is that his father works for the German nuclear industry.

Quite useful information is found in the blog of the Union of Concerned Scientists:

OK, try this, the source of the link to that piece:

http://twitter.com/#!/arclight

Writer is a U.S. nuclear engineer being repeated interviewed on CNN, Fox etc. for his views on the situation. With regard to the "Why I'm not worried..." article he says:

RT @nasilva: @arclight Hi, what's your view on this article? http://t.co/cUjPpsV < THIS. Fantastic, clear summary!!! Please read!

I recommend you read his whole twitter feed going back to Friday. The Union of Concerned Scientists is an anti-nuclear group.

Today's Race - Samuel Wanjiru Rocks the 2004 National High School Ekiden

T-Minus About 100 Days to a National Record - Hitomi Niiya's Complete Training for Her Half Marathon NR in Houston

At the Jan. 19 Aramco Houston Half Marathon, Hitomi Niiya ran 1:06:38 to break Kayoko Fukushi's 2006-era national record with support from JRN. Former men's 800 m national record holder Masato Yokota, 32, coached Niiya to that record. Over the next three days he is publishing Niiya's complete training diary for the months leading up to Houston. JRN will be publishing them in English with permission.



To people who aren't interested this will just be a list of numbers, but I thought it might help the hardcore track maniacs kill some time if I got Niiya's consent to publish her training diary for the 100 days leading up to Houston. Please do not reproduce this info without permission. You're more than welcome to give these workouts a go (although I can't guarantee you'll survive).

Notes in advance
・Easy jogs were once a day on Friday and Sunday, twice a day on other days.
・Strength training every day except Sunday.
・Daily mileage totaled about 30 km. Friday…
