I have been blogging about various aspects of dealing with radioactive waste in the past few columns. Today I am going to list a few suggestions and practices for repurposing radioactive waste.
Recently an important article was published in the journal Chemistry about a means of more safely and efficiently reprocessing spent nuclear fuel. Nuclear energy currently produces about ten percent of the electricity in the world. However, the nuclear fuel that is used in nuclear power reactors becomes less efficient over time and needs to be replaced about every five years.
One of the main problems with nuclear power is how to store and dispose of nuclear waste produced by develop and manufacture of nuclear weapons. Currently, vitrification is used for permanent long-term storage of nuclear waste in underground geological repositories. Nuclear waste is mixed with other materials that form glass or ceramics when heated and then enclosed in metallic cylinders.

Lately I've been enjoying some Jordan's Skinny Syrups in my diet Sprite with a splash of rum or vodka to unwind, but I really like to play with different carbonated waters. New flavors are constantly being released and I'm always eager to try a new one.
I'm such a sucker for cakes in a mug, so when I saw this layer cake in a jar recipe (and a keto recipe, no less!) I knew I had to make it soon. It's so perfect because if my family's eating a regular cake for a holiday, I get a little mini keto cake just for myself. We've done this at several family functions and it works out very well.
