1.Where is Chernobyl? Chernobyl is located in Kiev Oblast, Ukraine. 2.When did the accident happen? The accident occurred on April 25 and 26, 1986. 3.What Caused the Catastrophic Nuclear Accident in Chernobyl? The accident occurred due to a failure of a flawed reactor design that was operated with inadequately trained personnel. The resulting steam explosion and fires released at least 5% of the radioactive reactor core into the atmosphere and downwind – some 5200 PBq 4.How could it be avoided? First, the disaster uncovered how Russia’s nuclear power plants were unlike any others in the world. According to the Nuclear Energy Institute, the power station used a type of reactor, RBMK, that wasn’t built anywhere else because of its inherent instability, particularly on start up and shutdown. Chernobyl operators conducted their power test unaware that RBMK reactors sometimes increased power. As the fourth reactor overheated, the power soared, accelerating the heating of the steam that drives power generation and also breaking fuel-packed pressure tubes. Also, whereas nuclear reactors in the U.S. rely on water as a cooling mechanism to keep steam generation in check, an RBMK reactor relied on graphite and water. At Chernobyl, graphite and fuel mixed, starting the fires and causing the release of radioactivity, according to World Nuclear Association. After Chernobyl, it became apparent that the world lacked shared norms on nuclear safety. Countries and governments acted on their own. The accident showed a “need for a collective international focus on [nuclear] safety,” according to an International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report on post-Chernobyl international law.

I don't watch Netflix and I don't like to watch series movies. I like Disney movies in general and MARVEL movies. However, I know that this market is growing a lot and that these companies are looking to settle as a leader. I bring you a summary of the article about this subject that caught my attention and that brings a lot of information about this market. The article was written by Mr. Bruno Lugarini published on the Webitcoin website. “Netflix and Disney Plus are on-demand streaming services for watching TV series and movies. At this point Netflix is ​​the leader to be beaten by any new competitor who joins the fray, with 140 million subscribers worldwide and a gigantic library. At the moment there are many other online streaming services (Hulu, HBO Go, Amazon Prime Video), but none has gained as much market share as Netflix, which has become a home for original drama, comedies, children's TV, animation and many more. other genres. Netflix, however, has relied on many more expensive classic TV shows to license like Friends and The Office, and is therefore producing more original content with billions of viewers like Stranger Things. and Master of None. The rise of Disney Plus is also removing much of Netflix content, like all Marvel movies, and Netflix Marvel series (Dardevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist). Disney raises a lot of money (about $ 300 million) by placing its movies and properties on Netflix and other services, so it must have fairly high profit forecasts for its own service. It's hard to say for sure before the official release of Disney Plus, but it's clear that Disney's streaming service will have some high quality new and old titles to lure fans to the service. Netflix is ​​likely to keep the margin with its large number of titles and therefore more likely to have something for each of its users. Even with Disney's many acquisitions, Disney Plus will probably be another niche proposition.” In particular, I hope this competition will provide the public with more interesting and intelligent series and movies on a variety of devices at inviting prices.

I'm not into electronic games but I know it's a fast growing industry worldwide. I was unaware of this new technology presented by Google. Stadia is a streaming service that lets you play cutting-edge games through the Google Chrome browser on any device without the need for a console, high end hardware gamer PC or even game installation. That is, you can play on your computer or laptop that doesn't have an offboard video card or even on smartphones, tablets or TVs with Chromecast. The infrastructure is based on Google's search service datacenters, which have submarine cables and fiber optic links. Game processing takes place in the cloud on Google's servers, so all it takes is a fast, stable internet to gain access. It also records your progress online, which will allow you to start a game on TV and continue playing it on the tablet away from home. Surely this streaming service will bring new competitors like Microsoft for example. It was only the announcement of the platform happen that Microsoft also spoke. They have also been working for a while on the xCloud Project which has the same premise of streaming games on any platform. Remembering that Microsoft already has another Netflix-inspired service, the Xbox Game Pass. There the user pays a monthly fee and has access to a catalog with hundreds of games to download on his Xbox One and which is updated frequently. The important thing is that these technologies drive the economy of the countries providing new jobs and growth opportunities especially to young people.
