National Security, Rare Earth Elements & The Thorium Problem
"The only operating rare earth mine in the United States sends all of their valuable resources to China for processing. Congress does not know this. They think this [mining] company is supplying the U.S. value chain, [and] is supplying the military. It is in-fact, the opposite. They are part of the Chinese monopoly. They're taking powder and shipping it to China, and it comes back as a magnet, or an alloy, or a bolt-on component." - Jim Kennedy To address this issue, contact your legislators to support H.R.4883 https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/hr4883 Why can't Molycorp, Lynas or any other 'western' rare earth company succeed? China's production and market advantage in Rare Earth Elements (REE) is largely the result of NRC and IAEA "Source Material" regulations with unintended consequences. Source Material: Materials containing any ratio or combination of Thorium and Uranium above .05%. Producing or holding these materials within the regulatory threshold (.05%) requires extensive and wide-ranging licensing, storage, transportation, remediation disposal and compliance costs, including prohibitive liability and bonding issues. Consequently any potential supplier of byproduct / co-product rare earth resources that would be designated as "source material' disposes of these valuable resources to avoid liability and compliance issues. NRC / IAEA regulations regarding "Source Material" played a key roll in undermining the economic viability of all 'western' rare earth producers and are a critical factor in China's current 'market advantage'. Producers like Molycorp and Lynas, with low Thorium deposits, can never compete with China. Resources are abundant and available: U.S mining companies currently mine as much as 50% of global Rare Earth Elements demand every year. But these resources are diverted in tailings lakes or are redistributed back into the host ore body, due to NRC and IAEA regulations defining Monazite and other Thorium bearing rare earth resources as "Source Material". H.R. 4883 would solve the "Thorium Problem" by creating a federally chartered multinational Thorium Energy and Industrial Products Corporation ("Thorium Bank"). Privately funded and operated, this would decouple thorium from rare earth production. The Thorium Corporation would also have Congressional Authority to develop Thorium energy systems and industrial products. Environmental regulations are not scaled back... rather this enables thorium to be stored safely & securely, rather then being treated as "waste". https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/hr4883 H.R. 4883 thus also addresses the U.S. Weapons Systems current 100% Dependency on China for Rare Earths. http://thoriumenergyalliance.com/downloads/TEAC6/USWeaponsChinese.pdf Federal Legislation governing Strategic Materials, 10 USC 2533b, does not specify rare earths, but includes metal alloys containing limited amounts of manganese, silicon, copper, or aluminum, chromium, cobalt, columbium, molybdenum, nickel, titanium, tungsten, vanadium, nickel and iron-nickel, cobalt, Titanium and Zirconium alloys. Federal Regulations require that these materials be melted in the U.S. Most of these materials are utilized in rare earth alloys, magnets and components in the defense industry. The bill does NOT reclassify thorium. It does NOT alter current environmental protection. It simply resolves "The Thorium Problem" which cripples United States domestic rare earth mining, processing and value-adding processes.

Rare earth elements: Simple commodity or strategic vulnerability?
Rare earths are a group of 17 elements with unique chemical, magnetic and luminescent properties crucial for the functioning of much of today’s high technology equipment, including MRIs, lap-top computers, hybrid vehicles and LEDs. They also have important applications in the defence industry. China is the dominant supplier of rare earth elements (REEs), meeting at least 85% of global demand. In 2010, REEs were splashed across the front pages of newspapers when it significantly reduced rare earth export quotas and temporarily suspended their shipment to Japan. Consumers quickly recognised that diversity of reliable supply is just as important as price and quality, and there is a concerted effort to replace, reduce and recycle REEs. So are REEs best understood as simple commodities, or as strategic resources that can be used as tools of statecraft? And can Australia play a part in the development of alternative reliable sources of rare earths? To help understand the strategic importance of REEs the National Security College and Crawford School of Public Policy welcome two global experts in the field.

China's rare earth monopoly
Rare earth metals are a collection of 17 chemical elements that are key to the production of a long list of modern-day technologies. Despite their name, the elements are relatively plentiful in the earth's crust. However, because of their geochemical properties, the elements are not often found in concentrated forms that are economically viable to extract. Mining them is not only complex but costly, so many countries are cautious. China produces more than 95 per cent of the elements for the world's technology industry. The rest is supplied by the US, Estonia, India, Malaysia and Brazil. That may change, however, as demand for rare-earth metals rises for use in products such as smartphones, electric and hybrid cars, common computer monitors and televisions. Al Jazeera's Melissa Chan, reporting from Baotou in China, examines the importance of these elements.

Japan / China the rare earth minerals story – discovery
In 2010 the commies in China in a dispute with Japan over the Senkaku Islands placed an embargo of sorts against Japan. China reduced their export and raised the price of rare earth elements (REE) exported to Japan. These minerals are essential in the production of many electronic devices such as computers, cell phones, etc. China being the world’s number one exporter of this element. The Japanese then decided to explore an alternative source. They recently discovered a supply of rare earth elements with a supply to last for about four-hundred to seven-hundred years. These minerals were located off the Japanese atoll of the Ogasawara Islands. These minerals fall within the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of those islands. The commies in Beijing with agreement from the South Koreans are claiming an atoll does not enjoy an Exclusive Economic Zone, thus making the minerals available to any nation. Really? What about China stealing atolls in the South China Sea and claiming Exclusive Economic Zone off those stolen atolls? Hypocrisy and no consistency by the commies. Oops there is consistency by the Chinese in that they are consistent in not being consistent. 2010 China / Japan rare earth video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iR9UbPZmx68 Related articles: https://mainichi.jp/english/articles/20180411/p2a/00m/0na/014000c http://menafn.com/1096700695/Japan-bolsters-radar-at-outlying-island-as-China-steps-up-carrier-activity https://www.cnbc.com/2018/04/12/japan-rare-earths-huge-deposit-of-metals-found-in-pacific.html China and South Korea oppose recognizing the islands as islands: http://www.scmp.com/news/asia/east-asia/article/2141445/discovery-rare-earth-minerals-japan-coast-secures-780-years?utm_source=Yahoo&utm_medium=partner&utm_campaign=contentexchange https://sg.news.yahoo.com/discovery-rare-earth-minerals-off-082157853.html Rare Earth element: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rare-earth_element Link to Texas Daddy store: http://texas-daddy.shop-pro.jp/ トニー・マラーノ テキサスパパ 토니 마라 노

Ash Elements The mission of Ash Elements is to turn an ugly liability into an attractive environmentally responsible asset. This asset will be made available to the blockchain community and in doing so add value in many dimensions to our collective future. Ash Elements Values Protect the Environment Secure Mineral Rights Create Asset Value Build a Strategic REE stockpile for the US Ash Elements Vision Ash Elements is an Asset Back Token (ABT) that captures the value of rare earth minerals in coal ash in the form of mineral rights. Rare Earth Elements are referred to as vitamins for metals and electronics without which our high tech world ceases to exist. These mineral rights for premium coal ash basins are secured by a holding company through which mining or refining company can redeem ASH tokens Rare earth mineral rights to particular sites under contract. Each Ash Token is contractually tied to 1 metric ton of fly ash. Rare Earth elements are a strategic imperative to the United States of America. Many of these minerals have no substitutes. China has a virtual monopoly on Rare earth minerals and alternate supplies are needed to ensure that the world manufacturing base is not disrupted buy Rare earth mineral price fluctuations. The technology to extract these minerals from coal ash are being developed in research laboratories all over the world. Once these processes are matured and commercially viable coal ash will be in high demand. Those that have right to it likely will profit in this future world. Ash Elements is a bridge to realize value of that future world today. In the mean time while these technologies mature coal ash continues to be a controversial environmental problem and is considered a liability. The Ash Elements token addresses these issues by turning coal ash into an asset via the Etherium blockchain. This makes money available for environmental clean up and preserves the asset for future use as a strategic minerals reserve. https://www.linkedin.com/in/thomasfriend/ www.block-ops.io http://www.ashelements.io http://www.thomasfriend.com [email protected] iTUNES: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/crypto-the-wonder-dog/id1342426584# YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/c/CryptoTheWonderDog SPOTIFY: https://open.spotify.com/show/1SaoepNZDYX75CeN3RouFD PODCAST PAGE - http://cryptocent.podbean.com WEB - Cryptothewonderdog.com TWITTER - https://twitter.com/CryptoCTWD FACEBOOK - https://www.facebook.com/CryptoTheWonderDog/ INSTAGRAM: @cryptothewonderdog BLOG: https://cryptothewonderdog.blogspot.com FEED: http://cryptocent.podbean.com/feed/ LinkedIn Group: https://www.linkedin.com/groups/13579876 Telegram: https://t.me/joinchat/HXYr-1E8iFne2LLgfEwe2A Crypto the Wonder Dog is now looking for the TRUTH when it comes to Cryptocurrencies and BITCOIN, Digital Currency...

THE THORIUM PROBLEM - Manufacturing & energy sector hobbled by thorium
Thorium, Rare Earth Elements [REE] and Molten Salt Reactors [MSR] covered in brand-new book by Victoria Bruce! https://www.amazon.com/Sellout-Washington-Americas-Technological-Fight-ebook/dp/B06WVPDF5N/ John Kutsch of Thorium Energy Alliance and Jim Kennedy of ThREE Consulting review the hazards maintaining U.S. current thorium policy. Heavy Rare Earth Element mining is impeded. Energy sector innovation is stifled. Thorium is less dangerous, less radioactive, and less easily metabolized than many elements we are exposed to on a daily basis. Current regulation assists China's capture of high-tech manufacturing sector. Current regulation protects incumbent U.S. [light] rare earth producers who DISPOSE of thorium and valuable heavy rare earths in tailing ponds. Current regulation does NOT facilitate growth of U.S. economy. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle recognize reform is needed. No one is willing to introduce legislation to address the thorium problem. China continues to capture high-tech manufacturing jobs. U.S. private corporations are unable to pursue thorium an an energy resource. THE THORIUM PROBLEM was delivered at SME - Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration on Feb 20th 2012 [2012-02-20] in Seattle.

Kenny on the coming global rare earth supply crisis
June 5, 2015 — In an InvestorIntel interview, Publisher Tracy Weslosky speaks with James Kenny, Director and CEO of Frontier Rare Earths Ltd. (TSX: FRO | OTCQX: FREFF), about how the rare earth industry is sleepwalking towards a supply crisis in the backend of this decade. James discusses the current state of supply as being unlikely to last, and the cost effective advantage in Frontier’s latest technical innovations in separation technology. Tracy Weslosky: James you're such a knowledgeable individual about the rare earth sector in general, which is a very competitive and challenging sector to be in. Can you tell us what you think is happening in the industry right now? James Kenny: Well, my thought is perhaps one not necessarily shared by others, but I think that industry in general is sleepwalking its way into another rare earth supply crisis. My observation, and I said these are my own personal opinions, is that many of the large users, major industrial corporations in North America, in Europe and in Asia believe the rare earth problem is over. They believe that because prices have come down, because the warehouses are full and because the purchasing manager says there doesn't appear to be shortage in supply. When we go back to maybe the peaks that we saw in 2011, late 2010 and 2011, nobody was talking about the supply shortage at that time. I don't believe there's any supply shortage in 2015. There wasn't one in 2014. There won't be one in 2016.The supply shortage is coming in the backend of this decade. I think that industry does not understand the mining lifecycle and the length of time it takes to put a viable project into commercial production. I believe there is a risk that they will realize that too late and before the end of this decade we will see a supply and price shock just like we saw 2 or 3 years ago. Tracy Weslosky: So, in keeping with this, are there any innovative metallurgical extraction processes? I mean, there has been a lot of conversation on InvestorIntel about this. Maybe you can tell us what you think. James Kenny: Yes, I have to say I'm a little bit cautious when I hear about technological breakthroughs in the rare earth sector and breakthroughs which do not come from China, who are clearly the market leader in every respect. The thing about technology is on the one hand it may sound very attractive and positive, but in rare earths you may not want to be the first…to hear the rest of interview, click here.

Thorium Reactors:  A letter to my state Representative
I'm an electrical engineer with a life-long interest in finding alternative, replenishable forms of energy. I wanted to bring to your attention to THORIUM reactors. You may have never heard of this super-dense type of nuclear energy, derived from rare-earth mining. Thorium is considered a 'waste' product of rare- earth mining, but what you may not know is that Thorium is incredibly safe and so energy 'dense' that a pound of it would run an American household for a few years. It's abundant and also easy to procure and refine. In fact, a car has been built as a proof of concept which runs purely on this element. A few GRAMS will fuel this car for a century. The reactors were designed and built in the 1960's and were about to come online. The byproduct is not highly radioactive, CANNOT become unstable, and is safe for the environment. In fact, the reactor design is such that it will NOT allow a run-away reaction. If the reactor fails, the nuclear reaction simply STOPS. No backup systems are required and the reactors themselves are a fraction of size and cost compared to what is used today. Thorium is abundant and found just about anywhere you can dig, but is most plentiful in these rare-earth mines. Imagine a tiny reactor AT each household, or a small reactor at power stations producing safe, room temperature, and plentiful nuclear energy. Simply searching google for 'Thorium Reactors' will provide a wealth of information. So, why are we still using prehistoric and extremely dangerous traditional reactors? Power companies could drastically reduce the cost of power, while at the same time saving so much money that their bottom lines would actually increase. Better power, safer power, abundant power .. a win-win-win for everyone involved. Would you kindly look into this technology, perfected in the 60's, as a possible solution for the future? It can start with one reactor, and as a bonus, bring rare-earth mining operations BACK to the USA. China currently supplies 95% of the world's rare-earth element mining operations. Re-establishing those mining operations here would bring manufacturing facilities back to our soil while at the same time producing the very element needed for clean and safe nuclear power. I'd love to hear back from you about this topic, know what I can do to increase awareness of this type of reactor, and would be willing to provide you with more information. From a citizen of your district...

Note: just because it’s found on earth, doesn’t mean it’s from it! 10. Tanzanite 9. Grandiderite 8. Black Opal 7. Taaffeite 6. Alexandrite 5. Musgravite 4. Painite 3. Serendibite 2. Red Diamonds, Pink Star Diamond 1. Jadeite Poudretteite This mineral was first found during the mid-1960’s in the Poudrette quarry of Mont Saint-Hilaire, Quebec. However, it wasn’t until 1987 that the poudretteite was fully recognized as a new mineral. Even then, this mineral wasn't described in depth until 2003. As stated by several different sources, it’s believed that only a relative few will ever come into contact with this mineral and let alone ever even hear it mentioned. Grandidierite This is considered to be an extremely rare mineral and gem that was first seen in 1902 on the Island of Madagascar. It was named in honor after the French explorer Alfred Grandidier who once studied the island’s natural history. Grandidierite comes in a bluish-green color and is located almost entirely in Madagascar, although, there was a clean faceted sample that was found in Sri Lanka. Grandidierite is also pleochroic, which means it's able to absorb different wavelengths of light differently and that results in different colors, such is the same ability with the gems tanzanite and alexandrite. Painite This gemstone was first discovered back in the 1950’s in Myanmar by a British mineralogist named Arthur C. D. Pain. For the next several decades only two fragments of the hexagonal mineral were known to exist on earth. By the time the year 2005 rolled around, there were still less than 25 discovered pieces of painite and The Guinness Book of World Records had declared it the world's rarest gemstone mineral. However, that was 11 years ago and since then the origin of the original stones has been found, along with two other major locations that have led to the discovery of thousands of small samples of painite fragments. Even so, they’re still considered one of the world’s rarest minerals. Ammolite This rare gemstone can be found mainly in the eastern region of the Rocky Mountains of North America. Ammolite is an opal-like gemstone that is solely made up of the fossilized shells of extinct animals known as ammonites. This makes ammolite one of the few biogenic gemstones that exist, along with pearls and amber. Ammolites weren’t officially recognized as gemstones until 1981 when they were given official status by the World Jewellery Confederation. That’s also the same year that commercial mining for ammolite began. Tanzanite It’s been said that tanzanite is 1,000 times rarer than a diamond, which might as well be the case considering the fact that it can be found almost entirely near the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro. This is where the perfect conditions lie in order to form the mineral. Like grandidierite, tanzanite is able to produce striking shifts in color based on the crystal’s orientation and the certain lighting conditions. Caltech's geology division states this is because the color variations are caused by the existence of vanadium ions. Red Diamonds Did you know that diamonds come in a variety of colors? In fact, diamonds can range from being yellow, brown, colorless, blue, green, black, pink, orange, and red. That’s also the same order of how rare each diamond is classified as with yellow being the least and red being the most. Not only that but diamonds are also the hardest natural substances that form here on earth. Just like the colorless diamond, the red diamond is made purely out of carbon, however, what gives the diamond its red color is actually a deformation of their atomic structure that’s known as a “plastic deformation”. The Moussaieff Red is the largest red diamond in the world among the little known other red diamonds that have been discovered.

Thorium 2017
Thorium is an abundant material currently disposed of as waste. It is found in coal ash piles and mine tailings. A single Rare Earths mine could produce enough Thorium byproduct to power the entire planet. To do so requires a very different nuclear reactor than the kinds we use today. Not one that uses solid fuel rods, but a reactor in which the fuel is kept in a liquid state. Not one that uses pressurized water as a coolant, but a reactor that uses extremely stable molten salts. The full description of one such reactor is: 2-Fluid, Thermal-Spectrum, Molten-Salt Breeder Reactor equipped with a chemical fuel salt treatment module. Such a reactor was conceived of decades ago, as documented in the book "Fluid Fuel Reactors" [1958]. Or, simply "LFTR" (Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor) as proposed by Flibe Energy's Kirk Sorensen... a modern redesign of the 2-Fluid, thermal-spectrum, MSBR concept. http://Flibe-Energy.com/ Since 2011 (the year Flibe Energy was founded), legislators asking questions about Thorium have had their queries answered as if such a reactor design did not exist. NNL [UK] and OECD [NEA] reports on the Thorium Fuel Cycle did not explore the implications of this reactor, and dismiss thorium based on challenges and mediocre performance found in other reactor designs. For example, other options include a "Fast-Spectrum Molten-Salt Reactor". Worth pursuing, certainly, but requires more fissile inventory than LFTR... approximately 5x as much. (Fissile inventory is specifically mentioned as a concern by OECD's thorium report.) And assuming the challenges of a fast-spectrum MSR can be met... both natural Uranium and natural Thorium can both be fully consumed as fuel in a fast-spectrum reactor. That is where Thorium is dismissed as only "4x as common as Uranium" (fast-spectrum usage) rather than "400x as common as U-235" (thermal-spectrum usage). Thorium's advantages: both thermal-spectrum breeding and unique chemical properties, are taken full advantage of only by LFTR style reactors. When evaluated in any other reactor, depending on that reactor, Uranium can be as attractive, more attractive, or Uranium can be the only viable option. For example: Shippingport. Cited as an example of a "Thorium Reactor" by Dr. Lyons, it was NEVER intended to be economical, and features no advantages of LFTR. It was a solid-fuel reactor, and so operated at low-temperature, had no on-line chemical reprocessing, used high-pressure water coolant, used fuel as inefficiently as every other solid-fuel reactor, and had to be shut down every time it was refueled. 2 of its 3 fuel loads were Enriched Uranium. It was -a- Reactor capable of consuming Thorium and demonstrated only that it was possible... it was not -THE- Thorium Reactor. If you'd like to watch a mini-series length (6.5h) documentary on this topic, please check out "Thorium." https://youtu.be/2oK6Rs6yFsM ...it goes into some technical detail on Thorium and Molten Salt Reactors, as well as nuclear power itself.

It is the ninth game in the Fallout series and serves as a narrative prequel to the series. It is scheduled to be released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 14, 2018. Fallout 76 is a narrative prequel to previous Fallout games. It is set in an alternate version of history and takes place in 2102, twenty-five years after a nuclear war that devastated the Earth. The player character is a resident of Vault 76, a fallout shelter that was built in West Virginia to house America's best and brightest minds. Fallout 76 will be Bethesda Game Studios' first online multiplayer game. Players may play individually or with a party of up to three others. All the servers for the game will be dedicated, with the player automatically allocated to one of them. While the game will launch with public servers only, Todd Howard revealed plans for private servers to be introduced some time after the game's launch. Howard described the delay as being necessary to allow Bethesda time to assure the stability of public servers. Elements of previous Fallout games will be present and modified to work with the real-time game. The V.A.T.S. system—a mechanic first introduced in Fallout 3 that allows players to pause the game to target specific locations on an enemy's body to attack—will be used in Fallout 76 as a real-time system, though it will still allow players to specify targets on an enemy's body. The game will feature an open world four times the size of that of Fallout 4. The game world is called "Appalachia" and is a representation of West Virginia. It features re-creations of real locations in the region, including the West Virginia State Capitol, The Greenbrier, Woodburn Circle, New River Gorge Bridge, and Camden Park. The game will also feature numerous new mutated monsters, several of which—such as the Mothman and the Flatwoods monster—were inspired by West Virginian folklore. ---------------- I've been asked what gear I'm using to create my videos.

Monel Nickel-Copper Alloy Metal: "Modern As Tomorrow" ~ 1930 International Nickel Company
Metals playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL64F10A579EB0A526 more at: http://scitech.quickfound.net "Silent film on how monel metals (a nickel-copper alloy with high tensile strength and resistance to corrosion) are useful in industry and everyday life." Originally a public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monel Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ Monel is a group of nickel alloys, primarily composed of nickel (up to 67%) and copper, with small amounts of iron, manganese, carbon, and silicon. Stronger than pure nickel, Monel alloys are resistant to corrosion by many agents, including rapidly flowing seawater. They can be fabricated readily by hot- and cold-working, machining, and welding. Monel was created by Robert Crooks Stanley, who worked for the International Nickel Company (INCO) in 1901. Monel alloy 400 is a binary alloy of the same proportions of nickel and copper as is found naturally in the nickel ore from the Sudbury (Ontario) mines and is therefore considered a puritan alloy. Monel was named after company president Ambrose Monell, and patented in 1906. One L was dropped, because family names were not allowed as trademarks at that time. The name is now a trademark of Special Metals Corporation. It is a very expensive alloy, with cost ranging from 5 to 10 times the cost of copper and nickel, hence its use is limited to those applications where it cannot be replaced with cheaper alternatives. Compared to carbon steel, piping in Monel is more than 3 times as expensive... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nickel Nickel is a chemical element with symbol Ni and atomic number 28. It is a silvery-white lustrous metal with a slight golden tinge. Nickel belongs to the transition metals and is hard and ductile. Pure nickel shows a significant chemical activity that can be observed when nickel is powdered to maximize the exposed surface area on which reactions can occur, but larger pieces of the metal are slow to react with air at ambient conditions due to the formation of a protective oxide surface. Even then, nickel is reactive enough with oxygen that native nickel is rarely found on Earth's surface, being mostly confined to the interiors of larger nickel–iron meteorites that were protected from oxidation during their time in space. On Earth, such native nickel is found in combination with iron, a reflection of those elements' origin as major end products of supernova nucleosynthesis. An iron–nickel mixture is thought to compose Earth's inner core. The use of nickel (as a natural meteoric nickel–iron alloy) has been traced as far back as 3500 BCE. Nickel was first isolated and classified as a chemical element in 1751 by Axel Fredrik Cronstedt, who initially mistook its ore for a copper mineral. The element's name comes from a mischievous sprite of German miner mythology, Nickel (similar to Old Nick), that personified the fact that copper-nickel ores resisted refinement into copper. An economically important source of nickel is the iron ore limonite, which often contains 1-2% nickel. Nickel's other important ore minerals include garnierite, and pentlandite. Major production sites include the Sudbury region in Canada (which is thought to be of meteoric origin), New Caledonia in the Pacific, and Norilsk in Russia. Because of nickel's slow rate of oxidation at room temperature, it is considered corrosion-resistant. Historically, this has led to its use for plating metals such as iron and brass, coating chemistry equipment, and manufacturing certain alloys that retain a high silvery polish, such as German silver. About 6% of world nickel production is still used for corrosion-resistant pure-nickel plating. Nickel-plated items are noted for provoking nickel allergy. Nickel has been widely used in coins, though its rising price has led to some replacement with cheaper metals in recent years. Nickel is one of four elements that are ferromagnetic around room temperature. Alnico permanent magnets based partly on nickel are of intermediate strength between iron-based permanent magnets and rare-earth magnets. The metal is chiefly valuable in the modern world for the alloys it forms; about 60% of world production is used in nickel-steels (particularly stainless steel). Other common alloys, as well as some new superalloys, make up most of the remainder of world nickel use, with chemical uses for nickel compounds consuming less than 3% of production. As a compound, nickel has a number of niche chemical manufacturing uses, such as a catalyst for hydrogenation. Enzymes of some microorganisms and plants contain nickel as an active site, which makes the metal an essential nutrient for them...

Fiscal Cliff Bill Sparks Inflationary Rally Into Industrial Metals and Out Of U.S. Treasuries
http://goldstocktrades.com/blog We observe the markets rallying following the conciliatory agreement which came out of Washington at literally the final hour. The S&P 500 gapped higher but was outpaced by the industrial metals led by uranium and copper. This may be highlighting the transfer of cheap fiat capital from the West to the emerging Asian nations which have been outperforming the S&P500. Over the past 6 months Chinese markets are up 18%. China has started construction on next generation nuclear reactors and may announce further infrastructure initiatives which could boost demand for these oversold and under loved miners bouncing off multi year lows. Particular attention must be paid to the rare earth and lithium miners as well as countries may be factoring in peak oil and must increase the use of cleaner and alternative energy sources for the next century. Even Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are looking to diversify their energy base and are investing in alternative energy sources and are planing to build nuclear power plants. The Canadian Venture which is composed of early stage explorers may be forming a double bottom and is on the verge of breaking a major two year downtrend. Most consolidations last an average of 18 months and now we are headed into the 23rd month. The general rule is that the deeper the base the larger the eventual upswing. The Venture is the lifeblood for the finding and developing of new assets which are growing increasingly in demand. Watch for a breakout above the 50 day moving average. The silver miners have broken above the 50 day moving average and outperformed the gold miners as the industrial component may give it an advantage in a potential inflationary cycle. The cycle may be accelerated by the breakdown in U.S. treasuries as investors may begin exiting from a crowded trade. The treasuries are being hit hard and appear to be turning over failing at its 50 day moving average.

Lanthanum is a soft, ductile, silvery-white rare-earth metal element with symbol La and atomic number 57. In the periodic table, it is the first element of the lanthanide series (or, less frequently, the first element of the 6th-period transition metals). It is usually found in combination with cerium and other rare earth elements. Lanthanum oxidizes rapidly when exposed to air. It is produced from the minerals monazite and bastnäsite using a complex multistage extraction process. Lanthanum compounds have numerous applications as catalysts, additives in glass, carbon lighting for studio lighting and projection, ignition elements in lighters and torches, electron cathodes, scintillators, GTAW electrodes, and others. Lanthanum carbonate (La2(CO3)3) has been approved as a medicine for treating renal failure. This video is targeted to blind users.

Fallout 76: Should You Bulk Your Junk???
Fallout 76 I took a look at all the weights of the various resources in the game, and came to the determination that bulking everything is a waste of plastic. There are a few resources you might want to be bulking though. *Channel Support:* If you like what I do and would like to show some love and help build this channel, there are a couple different ways you could help out. If you are wanting to do some automated monthly support, and want some perks beyond the warm feeling of helping someone else visit my patreon [email protected] http://patreon.com/dracoinvictus If you'd rather avoid monthly subscriptions but would still like to contribute, visit my page @ https://ko-fi.com/dracoinvictus OR be a donor through my streamlabs account @ https://streamlabs.com/dracoinvictus1 ---------------- Fallout 76 is an upcoming online multiplayer action role-playing video game developed by Bethesda Game Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. It is the ninth game in the Fallout series and serves as a narrative prequel to the series. It is scheduled to be released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 14, 2018. Fallout 76 is a narrative prequel to previous Fallout games. It is set in an alternate version of history and takes place in 2102, twenty-five years after a nuclear war that devastated the Earth. The player character is a resident of Vault 76, a fallout shelter that was built in West Virginia to house America's best and brightest minds. The player character exits the Vault on "Reclamation Day" as part of a plan to re-colonize the Wasteland. Fallout 76 will be Bethesda Game Studios' first online multiplayer game. Players may play individually or with a party of up to three others. All the servers for the game will be dedicated, with the player automatically allocated to one of them. While the game will launch with public servers only, Todd Howard revealed plans for private servers to be introduced some time after the game's launch. Howard described the delay as being necessary to allow Bethesda time to assure the stability of public servers. Elements of previous Fallout games will be present and modified to work with the real-time game. The V.A.T.S. system—a mechanic first introduced in Fallout 3 that allows players to pause the game to target specific locations on an enemy's body to attack—will be used in Fallout 76 as a real-time system, though it will still allow players to specify targets on an enemy's body. The game will feature an open world four times the size of that of Fallout 4. The game world is called "Appalachia" and is a representation of West Virginia. It features re-creations of real locations in the region, including the West Virginia State Capitol, The Greenbrier, Woodburn Circle, New River Gorge Bridge, and Camden Park. The game will also feature numerous new mutated monsters, several of which—such as the Mothman and the Flatwoods monster—were inspired by West Virginian folklore. The game will include revisions to the SPECIAL progression system. Character attributes fall into one of seven categories: strength, perception, endurance, charisma, intelligence, agility and luck. As the player levels up, they will be able to spend skill points to boost their attributes on a scale of one to fifteen. ---------------- I've been asked what gear I'm using to create my videos.

Bringing Fresh Water to the Sahara
Next Video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWBSbzlGG9k&t=17s I have developed a sustainable new desalination method that is 25x’s more financially efficient, environmentally sound, and productive than the worlds most sophisticated billion dollar plants - modeled from simple plant cells. This will allow me to create the world's first desert resilient above ground man-made river and most successful super-farm complex From the creation of fresh water, I am now able to create a complete permaculture market chain, eliminating desertification and generating clean energy and viable soil for farmland, food crops, residential, commercial, and industrial centers. Vital products GROWN from innovative engineering with no need for mined rare earth metals at all - from the middle of any desert. But all things must begin somewhere and I hope to start the humble operation by coming to you all. My pilot model requires a bobcat excavator ($1400), a stirling steam engine ($400), a mirror array ($200) plastic tubing which I can find on site, a decorticator, which I can find cheap ($400 or less) or make one on site and of course the trip to #Mauritania #Mali #Niger and #Chad ($2000). The rest, I can make myself. I do not expect to be able to afford my own most efficient model for the pilot, so I will wait until 3 months when I harvest and sell my first crop, and I will make my own materials from there. Investing in the right crops will allow me to transform coconut shells, corn cob and banana fibers into toilet tissue, paper, lamp oil and wick, rope, wood beam alternatives and other building alternatives. I can create an economy of scale with $2 million worth of materials just from using the materials around me, but, since an unknown person going to do something out of love and passion can't expect this much for Africa, i'll settle for the barebones necessities. This project can only succeed with YOU all. $5,000 or $15,000 is all I need. I will take that and with a barebones budget build the most efficient farm in the middle of the Sahara desert... Because this can be done anywhere. Give me five years and I promise that Food and water insecurity will never be an issue for this region again. (Additional details below) The basic principle is simple. Use heat to transform water from a liquid to a gas. The heavier elements will remain on the bottom while the lighter travel to the top. Most distillers use metal, rubber, or plastic through pipes and tubes to transport the vapor or condensation to another chamber to be filtered again or consumed outright. They are too small and too expensive to be effective for large populations but I solve that without the ridiculous costs. My method copies the way a chloroplast splits hydrogen from oxygen and carbon from oxygen. The Thylakoid, electron transport chain, and vacuole are inextricably linked, just as the entire manufacturing process inside the cell is. So my method uses non corrosive materials that last for hundreds of years that are designed to survive all elemental forces of nature as well as be independent from electricity demands. Once the non drinkable water is poured into my pan, it evaporates by either passive solar heat or directed solar or other heating methods. the water flows into a natural charcoal filter devoid of any need for chemical agents, then once it is in my storage, it is filtered and maintained indefinitely with viktor schaubergers vortex renewable energy technology without the need for human intervention. This will allow me to water and cool my farming produce, pump co2 into it, and improve all aspects of the seed husbandry in comfort year round. I am absolutely ecstatic about starting as soon as possible! #gofundme #paypal #africaninvestors #blackinvestors #technology #entrepreneur #desalination #superfarm #meishatele # endingthesaharadesert #permaculture #aquaculture #vermiculture #agriculture #plantcell #thylakoid #chloroplast #worldsbest #africa #african #innovation #gofundme #patreon #meishatele #desertification #overfishing #soilerosion #solved

CHINA PINK DIAMOND (Sotherbys to auction most valuable diamond)
Sotheby's in Hong Kong on Thursday (October 3) unveiled a pink diamond that is set to be the most valuable diamond ever to be auctioned when it goes under the hammer later this year. The Pink Star, a 59.60-carat, oval cut pink diamond estimated to be worth over 60 million U.S. dollars will go to auction in Sotheby's sale of Magnificent Jewels in Geneva in mid-November. Sotheby's said it is the largest internally flawless fancy vivid pink diamond that the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) has ever graded. "We're delighted to have the Pink Star being on tis first stop of this travelling exhibition in Hong Kong. This is the most valuable diamond ever to come on the auction market, being the vivid pink and internally flawless, it's simply out of this world and one of the greatest treasures of the earth," said Patti Wong, Chairman of Sotheby's Asia. The Pink Star has received the highest colour and clarity grade from the GIA, Sotheby's said, adding that it has been found to be part of a subgroup comprising less than two percent of all diamonds. The gem is more than twice as large as The Graff Pink, a 24.78-carat fancy intense pink diamond which broke the world record for the most expensive jewel ever auctioned when it sold for at 46.2 million U.S. dollars in 2010. "Coloured diamonds are the rarest of all the diamonds, and the size of this stone and its colour and its purity really ranks as one of the top treasures of the world. Something like this, I think the appeal for coloured diamonds has been increasing and especially around the world where it's seen not only as an alternative asset class, but something very, very rare and very, very collectable. So we expect buyers who understand the rarity of this stone to come forth and be one of the bidders," Wong said. The original 132.5-carat rough diamond was mined in Africa in 1999 and cut and polished over two years, Sotheby's said. It has been the centrepiece of several exhibitions of diamonds.

U3O8 Corp. Shows That Berlin Deposit Could Be Zero Cost Uranium Producer
http://goldstocktrades.com/blog Recently U3O8 Corp (UWE.TO or UWEFF) published a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) on their flagship Berlin Project in Colombia. The study was able to shed light on the potential economics and metallurgical process of the multi commodity project which has uranium, rare earths, vanadium and phosphate. The PEA shows that the project can be economic with zero cash costs for the uranium as it can be paid for by the additional byproducts such as rare earths, vanadium and phosphate. The PEA shows an NPV of $181 million at a 10% discount rate. It must be remembered that the PEA only accounts for one third of the mineralized trend. The company is confident that they can expand the resource possibly three or four times larger than the initial resource which is what the PEA is based on. So it must be remembered that the recent Berlin PEA is just a starting point for the potential economics of this deposit. U3O8 Corp. (UWE.TO or UWEFF) has now proven with the publishing of its NI 43-101 PEA that Berlin may be one of the lowest cost uranium producers in the world. It may become increasingly apparent to the major uranium miners the benefits of the Berlin asset in mining friendly Colombia versus some of the higher cost operations where grades are decreasing, ore is being rapidly depleted or where cash costs are rising rapidly. U3O8 Corp's Berlin multi commodity resource may be a better alternative. Key milestones in 2013 will be further studies on the metallurgy to improve operating costs. U3O8 Corp is looking to demonstrate the size potential at Berlin with further exploration. It must be remembered that there could be 60-80 million lbs of uranium at Berlin.

The game was released worldwide in August 2016. The gameplay of No Man's Sky is built on four pillars: exploration, survival, combat, and trading. Players are free to perform within the entirety of a procedurally generated deterministic open universe, which includes over 18 quintillion (1.8×1019) planets, many with their own sets of flora and fauna. Players participate in a shared universe, with the ability to exchange planet information with other players, though the game is also fully playable offline; this is enabled by the procedural generation system that assures players find the same planet with the same features, lifeforms, and other aspects once given the planet coordinates, requiring no further data to be stored or retrieved from game servers. Nearly all elements of the game are procedurally generated, including star systems, planets and their ecosystems, flora, fauna and their behavioural patterns, artificial structures, and alien factions and their spacecraft. The founder of Hello Games, Sean Murray, had wanted to create a game that captured the sense of exploration and optimism of science fiction writings and art of the 1970s and 1980s with No Man's Sky. The title was developed over three years by a small team at Hello Games with promotional and publishing help from Sony Interactive Entertainment. The British band 65daysofstatic assisted in developing the game's music, with sound designer Paul Weir developing systems to procedurally generate the soundtrack. Significant attention and expectations were given to the title in the months leading to its release, leading Murray and some journalists to recommend caution due to the indie nature and niche appeal of the title, seeking to avoid the pitfalls that had previously occurred at the launch of Spore in 2008. At release, the game received a wide range of mixed reviews, praising the technical achievements of the procedurally-generated universe, while considering the gameplay lackluster and repetitive. No Man's Sky also suffered several technical problems at launch, while lacking several marketed features, including a multiplayer element, that further marred the players' experience with the game. INTRODUCING UPDATE 1.1 Welcome to the Foundation Update. It adds the foundations of base building, and is a foundation for things to come. This is the first of many free updates.
