  Nuclear meltdown - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A nuclear meltdown occurs when the core of a nuclear reactor melts, and is generally considered a serious nuclear accident.
Fast breeder reactors are more susceptible to meltdown than other reactor types, due to the larger quantity of fissile material and the higher neutron flux inside the reactor core, which makes it more difficult to control the reaction.
A nuclear meltdown is also colloquially known as the China syndrome, from the humorously exaggerated notion that molten reactor material would burrow from the United States through the center of the earth and emerge in China, as popularized by the 1979 film, The China Syndrome.

 Meltdown Yellow - index page - Free MP3 downloads, CDs, Bio Info, Tour Dates, Lyrics and More!"   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-18)
Meltdown Yellow’s music is best described as high energy, hard-hitting guitar rock with melodies that stay with everyone who listens, and a punchy rhythmic drive that is danceable and intimidating at the same time.
Meltdown Yellow began with the longtime guitar and bass combination of Chris Williams and Jeremy Harper.
Meltdown Yellow’s music enjoys heavy rotation on 88.1 WKNC, and is aired on several other radio stations including 96.1 WBBB (96 Rock) and 1090 AM WBZB.

 ARCHI Roster: Meltdown   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-18)
Every Meltdown show started with the same introduction (which is also the first track on this LP, as well as the out-of-print 7")--a jabbing song which screams and yelps the sole word "Meltdown." The track was a challenge (some might say threat)--one that often left the room emptier by its end.
In terms of punk, it is as simple as the snatching away of rock from FM radio and the arena in the 1970's by countless bands, and the subsequent re-invention whenever things fell back into stagnancy.
The especially encouraging part is the depth of understanding of Meltdown's process and meaning, and suggests that the need for such a posthumous release might be stronger than any time before--that people may be more ready and more in need of an all female band creating these thoughtful and memorable outsider songs.

 THE FEARSOME REACTOR MELTDOWN ACCIDENT
The RSS estimates that a reactor meltdown may be expected about once every 20,000 years of reactor operation; that is, if there were 100 reactors, there would be a meltdown once in 200 years.
In 1 out of 5 meltdowns there would be over 1,000 deaths, in 1 out of 100 there would be over 10,000 deaths, and in 1 out of 100,000 meltdowns, we would approach 50,000 deaths (the number we get each year from motor vehicle accidents).
In most meltdowns, the cost would be less than $50 million (all costs are in 1975 dollars); in 1 out of 10 meltdowns, it would exceed $300 million; in 1 out of 100 meltdowns, it would exceed $2 billion; and once in 10,000 meltdowns, it would be as much as $15 billion.

 Granny Vinnie Reviews Meltdown for the Atari 7800
Meltdown was a game I owned for awhile, but never could play until I located an Atari Light Gun from somewhere in the world.
Meltdown looks similar to the 2600 title Reactor, which was a great/strange game in it's own right.
I feel like Meltdown is a great game deep down inside, but it was abused as a child and it never fully developed properly.

Meltdown: planetary china-syndrome, dissolution of the biosphere into the technosphere, terminal speculative bubble crisis, ultravirus, and revolution stripped of all christian-socialist eschatology (down to its burn-core of crashed security).
Hyper-fluid capital deterritorializing to the planetary level divests the first world of geographic privilege; resulting in Euro-American neo-mercantilist panic reactions, welfare state deterioration, cancerizing enclaves of domestic underdevelopment, political collapse, and the release of cultural toxins that speed-up the process of disintegration in a vicious circle.
The meltdown of metropolitan education systems in the near future is accompanied by a quasi-punctual bottom-up takeover of academic institutions, precipitating their mutation into amnesiac cataspace-exploration zones and bases manufacturing cyberian soft-weaponry.

 Nuclear meltdown : Meltdown   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-18)
Although pressurized water reactors are susceptible to nuclear meltdown in the absence of active safety measures, this isn't a universal feature of civilian nuclear reactors, and much of the research in civilian nuclear reactors are for designs with passive safety features[?] that would be much less susceptible to meltdown even if all emergency systems failed.
Fast breeder reactors are more susceptible to meltdown than other reactor types, due to the larger quantity of fissile material and the higher neutron flux inside the reactor core, which makes it relatively more difficult to control the reaction.
The only known large scale nuclear meltdown at a civilian nuclear power plant was at Chernobyl, Ukraine, in 1986, although there have been several partial core meltdowns, including accidents at:

 Ash: Meltdown (2005): Reviews
“Meltdown” is a sturdy, well-written and (perpetually adolescent lyrics aside) mature addition to Ash’s enduring and near-essential canon – ample reward for ten years’ loyal support.
Meltdown is easily Ash's best album since 1977; this is the sound of a band becoming interesting again.
Ultimately, Meltdown isn’t as dramatic a failure as its title seems to be begging me to pronounce it--in fact it isn’t really a failure at all.

March 23, 2005 - Some minds hold that Ash is on the verge of supplanting Blur as the quintessential paragons of modern Britpop, and it's not hard to imagine why.

 Deterioration of CANDU Feeder Pipes
In such circumstances, of course, the probability of a core meltdown is much greater than would normally be anticipated.
This estimate is based on failure rates in the high pressure piping of the primary heat transport system being 10 times higher than has been assumed, and also on the fact that the availability of the Pickering ECCS has been demonstrated to be 10 times lower than postulated by the designers.
If the Ontario Royal Commission is right in its probability estimates, the chance of a core meltdown in a single CANDU during its 30-year lifetime could be about 1 in 66 -- even without the thinning of the walls of the feeder pipes.

Best of all, though, is drummer Rick McMurray, who sounds like he's grown an extra set of arms since recording their last album--the rocking "Clones" would be half the song without his relentless beats.
There are no real surprises in store for the fan, with the same recipe being applied to 11 songs, but for those fans who just jumped on the band wagon with the Free All Angels, it may seem a bit darker and sinister, as this is certainly not as commercially accessible as the last album.
However, I thought that only a handful of songs on Meltdown were worthy of the admiration I had for them.

From this point on, Meltdown (also known as High Risk) turns into a Hong Kong version of Die Hard, with terrorists taking over a skyscraper in order to steal valuable jewels, as well as a couple of young lovers, a villainous kung fu master who wants to challenge Frankie, and a hip-hop soundtrack.
Meltdown is a delirious romp, crammed with as much low comedy and high-powered action as three Hollywood flicks.
Despite (or partly because of) some clumsy special effects, logical absurdities, and cheesy plot developments, the movie is hugely entertaining, and Jet Li is in fine charismatic form.

As soon i put it in to the opening of the title-track,a more heavier rhythm section was there, the guitars were turned up and Tim Wheeler and Charlotte Hatherley's voices were on form.
Meltdown suffers from over-production just like nu-clear sounds, feels too guitar noisy, heavy, pedantic and complicated, lyrical stupid, new fans looking for a heavy rock and even metallic ones will dig it, but not me, this is one step back for what I consider the true succesors of the Smashing Pumpkins.
