More information about Chabad’s connections to that ‘technological world’ that is threatening to consume us.
***In the middle of writing this, I discovered something totally mind-blowing.***
On part 1, HERE, Daisy sent me the following comment:
[W]as the Rebbe himself involved in all of that, or not? Did he approve of these machinations? Did he really understand what was being done?
This is not a simple question.
If the Rebbe knew that his ‘close chossid’ was working on clandestine programs to enslave humanity via technology, as a direct outgrowth of the work down by the nazis scientists – including Josef Mengele! – on the CIA ‘MK Ultra’ project, then he should have stopped him.
So, we’re left with two options here:
- Either the Rebbe didn’t understand the tech involved (more on this in a moment), so he didn’t realise what Dr Norman Berg and the Harry Diamond Labs were really up to.
- Or, the Rebbe DID understand that tech involved, and still encouraged his follower, Dr Norman Berg, to continue his work.
Let’s see if we can bottom this out, a bit more.
(Thanks to C. for the following research.)
On the Living Torah website, HERE, you’ll find an interview with Yaakov Hardof, an electrical engineer, describing his two hour meeting with the last Lubavitcher Rebbe, back in 1957.
Here’s a transcription of some of the salient points:
The conversation went into electrical engineering. I said [to the Rebbe] ‘You are an electrical engineer?’ He said smiling, “yes. As a matter of fact, when I came to this country I wanted to contribute for the war effort, it was the war years, and I was a supervisor at the Brooklyn Navy Yard for the electrical work they were doing on the ships.”
I said, ‘It’s hard to conceive, a rabbi who is also an electrical engineer.’
I asked him, ‘What exactly kind of work did you do, in the Navy Yard, being a supervisor of what?’
He said that all these Liberty ships and the all the ships that came into the Navy Yard, being constructed in the Navy Yard, they all had electricians wiring them completely, for lighting, for power, for all the electrical controls. He said that his job was to go with the blueprints, and see that all the wiring was done according to the blueprints. Actually, to check that the wiring was done right, which was a very, very responsible job.
And he said that he did this work with great appreciation, because he said “At least I did my share for the war effort of the US, which gave me shelter….”
[The Rebbe then continued:]
“I hear from R’ Besser that you are an electrical engineer yourself…I’d like to ask you some questions, if you don’t mind…I hear there is something new coming around, something called ‘transistor’, ‘solid state’….Can you explain to me what it is all about? How does it work?”
He was really eager to get to know details about it.
And before you know it, he had a yellow pad, I pulled out my pen, he had a pencil, and I came to the table. What was supposed to have been a 15 minute meeting turned out to be close to two hours.
We compared the size of a little transistor, which is 1/4 inch by 1/4 inch, to a vacuum tube, 4 inches high and over an inch wide…[technical discussion of lots more details].
The Rebbe went into a mode of thinking for a second, then he says to me, “Tell me, is this going to revolutionise the whole field of electronics? That an electronic device that now weighs so heavily, will weigh a small fraction of that?”
I said that [this is] precisely the potential of the whole development of the transistor….
In those days, we were using electric rheostats…rotary devices that control the speed of motors. And [the Rebbe] had a lot to do with it, a the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
And he asked me, “Will solid state allow devices that are not as big, clumsy and heavy as the rheostats?” (The variable speed controllers.)
I told him that at that time, I already knew that they are working on solid state speed controls. And he went into details on that.
The man was eager to know as much as possible, in detail, about the developments in solid state vs vacuum tubes, in controls, motors and amplifications. I was amazed. I couldn’t believe that the man knew all these things.
Talk about smooth industrial intelligence gathering!
What I learned from this short clip is the following:
- Back in 1957, the Lubavitcher Rebbe was totally on top of developments related to cutting edge electronics engineering.
- He had a high-level job working for the American Navy, during WWII in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
- That almost certainly means he DID have a secular degree in electrical engineering, probably from the Sorbonne.
- He was getting a huge amount of sensitive, technical and scientific information out of his followers and visitors.
(BTW, it says that Yaakov Hardof is the founder of Amperon Electronics and Sound Systems. I don’t know if this ‘Amperon‘, apparently founded in 2017, is connected, at all, but they are purveyors of AI ‘smart meters’…. It’s a small world.)
So, let’s return to Daisy’s question:
[W]as the Rebbe himself involved in all of that, or not? Did he approve of these machinations? Did he really understand what was being done?
Did he understand what was being done, by his chossids like Dr Norman Berg, and the implications?
Yes, he totally did.
Whatever else I’m learning, I can tell you that the Rebbe really was a genius. Just not in quite the same ‘way’ his followers like to portray it.
Were his followers sharing details of their work with him?
From the above conversation, it seems likely.
And now, that brings us to another question:
How did the Rebbe – a foreign national, who had literally just arrived in the country, whose father-in-law had been happily ‘rescued’ out of Warsaw by top Nazi officials – get a top job in a super-sensitive location, helping to build American Navy ships in the Brooklyn Naval Yard?
And remember, his job meant that he had the BLUEPRINT for the whole ship he was working on.
How did the Rebbe get such a high-level security clearance, during War time, with the US Navy?
I have a theory about that, but I will keep it for the next post.
Let’s just say, the ‘Freemason-Frankist’ nexus was flourishing greatly in America, at this point in time.
Point is, the Rebbe seemed to be positioned at the centre of a hub of military and scientific secrets, had the secular training required to grasp these matters deeply, and was ENCOURAGING his ‘chassidim’ to continue working on stuff that in our times, our lives, we are coming to realise is some of the most evil technology ever known to man.
And Dr Norman Berg is not the Rebbe’s only chossid, who was working on evil tech for the military-industrial complex.
Here’s the list of ‘mesichist Chabad scientists’ from the last post, let’s just go through with some snippets (all from the relevant Wikipedia page, unless stated otherwise.)
Dr. Naftali Berg
Prof. Herman Branover
Dr. Arnie Gotfryd
Dr. Tsvi Saks
Prof. Alvin Radkowsky
Prof. Levi Reiter
In 1987 Branover founded SATEC, which started out as a technological business incubator, soon after focusing on the development and manufacturing of power metering solutions, such as power meters and power quality analyzers.
[Ed. note: this is talking about the precursors to ‘Smart Meters’]
This move was inspired by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, who predicted an influx of Jewish immigration from the Soviet Union, following Perestroika. His aim was to create jobs in a fitting technological environment for these immigrants, many of them holding advanced scientific degrees and in-depth technological experience….
Branover founded the periodical “B’Or Ha’Torah” in 1981.
It was founded at the urging of the late Lubavitcher Rebbe, Menachem Mendel Schneerson, who gave the periodical its name. The publication allows distinguished scientists – initially those close to the Rebbi – to bring their discussions of contradictions between Torah and science to a wider audience.
Here’s a screenshot of where I get to, when I click on the link for the ‘B’Or Ha’Torah’ website:
There’s a bunch more stuff that took my eye, too, but let’s move on.
Dr Arnie Gotfryd
Here’s is a snippet from his Amazon author bio, beneath a book he wrote called: Living in the Age of Moshiach
Dr. Arnie Gotfryd is a chassid and a scientist. He received his Hon.B.Sc. in Zoology and his Ph.D. in Applied Ecology at the University of Toronto, where he now lectures.
He has earned numerous academic laurels including a Canadian Wildlife Scholarship and a Templeton Foundation Grant for his innovative undergraduate course on Faith and Science, which interprets the modern harmony of religion and science in the light of Chassidic teachings regarding Moshiach.
He works as an environmental scientist, consulting to government, business, and individuals on environmental subjects ranging from wildlife in urban natural areas to health impacts of power transmission lines.
His publications include technical reports, popular science, and peer-reviewed articles in ecological journals, plus 25 articles of Jewish interest and a book relating Torah and science.
Dr. Gotfryd also serves as Executive Director of a non-profit, non-denominational adoption program for Russian orphans.
Since discovering his Jewish roots in 1981, he has undertaken various Jewish outreach activities together with his wife, Leah, including launching a Hebrew School, running a Jewish drop-in program at a public High School, and maintaining a Chabad House with regular Torah classes and prayer services in their home.
It’s interesting that the (nominally ‘xtian’…) Templeton Foundation gave this Chabad chossid a grant, for his university course.
They also fund the Elijah Interfaith Institute, which has plans to build a massive ‘interfaith centre’ in the heart of Meah Shearim, and who I have written about before, on the old blog, as particularly smacking of ‘Frankist-Freemasons’.
Here’s a snippet from Gotfryd’s book description itself (written in 2000):
As the millennium dawns, the world is flying headlong into… who knows what? What is the Jewish view? Is there any information or is it just speculation? And what or who is Moshiach, and why should I care? And what role does the Lubavitcher Rebbe himself play in all this?
Here he is talking to Yakov David Cohen, who runs that NGO out of the United Nations on Youtube about ‘Faith & Science’:
Dr Tsvi Saks
I can’t find anything much for him – which is weird, as in THIS press release from 2005 he’s described as:
Dr Tsvi Saks, internationally renowned topologist with IBM Corporation
Whatever ‘Dr Tsvi Saks’ was doing at IBM seems to be so top-secret, I can’t find a trace of him, or his work. Literally.
UPDATE: I had some traction on this, with people with better browsers…
After moving to Pittsburgh in 1985, he conducted research and development in applications of artificial intelligence to solve real world problems with the Carnegie Group company.
Dr. Saks continued with Transarc, a software development firm that was acquired by IBM in 1994. He was an advisory software engineer with IBM.
I want to share two personal anecdotes that play a role in answering these questions.The first one took place in 1991-1992.I was working on a logistics distribution scheduling project in the Army research laboratory for a company called Carnegie Group, an offshoot of Carnegie Mellon University.The problem was corps-sized: how to move thousands of tons of commodities, mostly ammunition, but including petroleum, medical supplies, and other materials by thousands of vehicles. It’s a program that has astronomical computational complexity. In 1992, within three minutes the program we developed produced a solution with a significantly greater degree of accuracy than ten human logisticians could make in one or two weeks.The Army was impressed.
The Army Research Laboratory is what took over from the Harry Diamond Labs, being run by Dr Norman (Naftali) Berg.
Tsvi Victor Saks, PhD (1944-2005) successfully harmonized his doctoral studies and career in applied mathematics with the Torah observance that he embarked upon as an adult.He remained attached to the Lubavitcher Rebbe as he progressed in his brilliant career as a topologist, specializing in abstract infinite space. He was a professor of mathematics at the University of Costa Rica and Daemen College in Amherst, NY.More recently, he was a researcher in the applications of artificial intelligence at IBM. He always found time to teach classes in Torah and Hasidism.
Alvin Radkowsky (30 June 1915 – 17 February 2002) was an American nuclear physicist and chief scientist at U.S. Navy nuclear propulsion division. His work in the 1950s led to major advances in nuclear-ship technology and civilian use of nuclear power.
Dr Radkowsky is very interesting. Here’s some more snippets from Wikipedia:
He was a civilian nuclear physicist in the US Navy from 1938 to 1972, where he was chief scientist of the Bureau of Ships’ nuclear propulsion division, and in which role he worked closely with Admiral Hyman G. Rickover.
Radkowsky was also chief scientist in the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (now Dept. of Energy), Office of Naval Reactors from 1950 to 1972. He taught nuclear engineering at Tel Aviv University (1972–1994), and at Ben Gurion University (1994–2002).
In 1979 Radkowsky founded New Power Technology in Israel.
It was backed by Tel Aviv University and Ben Gurion University and also by Yitzhak Moda’i, the Israeli Energy Minister…
Feldhamer Capital was appointed by the Israeli Energy Ministry to commercialize New Power Technology following an agreement between the Energy ministry and the Universities of Tel Aviv and Ben Gurion where the research was conducted.
The advisory committee and board of directors were a collection of the world’s most famous Manhattan Project and Nobel Prize winning physicists, all willing to lend their names to this humane venture.
Professor Edward Teller, father of the hydrogen bomb and founder of the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory, Nobel Prizewinner Professor Eugene Wigner of Princeton University, Dr. Alvin Radkowsky, Nobel Prizewinner Professor Hans Bethe of Cornell University and Professor Herbert Goldstein of Columbia University all lent their reputations to this venture….
In 1992, Radkowsky started what became Thorium Power Inc.(Nasdaq:LTBR). Thorium fueled reactors allow nations the capability to generate energy while preventing them from using spent fuels to produce nuclear weapons….
By 2014, Thorium Power Inc itself has changed its name to Lightbridge and seems to have lost interest in RTF.
That’s the ‘official’ history of Thorium Power.
What’s really weird is that if you go to the Lightbridge website, they now make absolutely no mention at all of their founder, Dr Alvin Radkowsky, nor Thorium.
Remember when the Fukishima Nuclear Reactor in Japan imploded, back in 2011?
At that stage, headlines like this started coming out in their droves:
That man has been called ‘Alvin Radkowsky’ so far, but super-strange, in this Guardian article he gets a new name:
The inventor of the technology upon which most of today’s operating nuclear power stations are based, Alvin Weinberg, was all too aware of this. He worried about some of the safety issues involved in using solid uranium fuel in his water-cooled reactors…
Fortunately, one of the legacies of Fukushima is that while investment in today’s current reactor designs may have slowed, there is a renewed interest in Alvin’s alternative designs and in other fundamentally different approaches.
In China, a major R&D programme into thorium molten salt reactors is underway, with the first test reactors to be completed in 2015 and a larger-scale demo ready by the end of the decade….
Even here in the UK, where nuclear R&D has been starved of investment, important but fragmented research is underway and, with the help of the Weinberg Foundation, I have helped to set up an all-party parliamentary group dedicated to exploring the potential of thorium-based energy.
You see how all-consuming this stuff is? Because now, I have to start asking the obvious question of why the heck they changed ‘Alvin Radkowsky’ to ‘Alvin Weinberg’?!?!?
When I click on the link for the ‘Weinberg Foundation‘, above, I get this:
Lucky, the Wayback Machine comes up trumps, and this is what you get for the snapshot from 2012:
I go to the Wikipedia page for ‘Alvin Marvin Weinberg’ – and here is where honestly, I start to feel a little sick.
He seems to be the same man as ‘Alvin Radkowsky’, Lubavitcher Rebbe chossid, and guy with very close ties to the State of Israel, who founds ‘Thorium Power, Inc’.
But this is the bit that takes my eye:
Biological and environmental studies
Under Weinberg’s tenure as director, ORNL’s Biology Division grew to five times the size of the next largest division.
This division was charged with understanding how ionizing radiation interacts with living things and to try to find ways to help them survive radiation damage, such as bone marrow transplants.
Weinberg / Radkowsky was director of ORNL between 1945 until 1948, and then again for a long stretch from 1955.
In the intervening years, he was ‘Research Director for the laboratory.
Let me refresh your memory, with the opening words from this documentary on the ‘Ringworm Children’:
During the 1950s, masses of Jewish immigrants immigrated [to the State of Israel] from North Africa. About 100,000 of their children were subjected to X-ray radiation as a treatment against ringworm. Thousands of them died, and those who survived suffered cancerous after effects.
This film endeavors to identify the people who were responsible for this calamity.
The parents of these Sephardi children had no ‘informed consent’ about the ‘medical procedure’ that bombarded their skulls with the equivalent exposure to 25,000 chest X-rays – in one shot.
6,000 of them died almost immediately, and tens of thousands more were disabled in various ways, for the rest of their life.
Those experiments were paid for by the US government, who ‘somehow’ had an ‘in’ with the eugenicist-pushing, Freemason-Frankist politicians like Shimon Peres, in the State of Israel.
I’ve been wondering for years who was on the other side of that deal, brokering the agreement on behalf of the US government, so close to the Holocaust.
And now, Alvin Radkowsky / Weinberg, with his surprising ‘fake’ name, his close connections to both the US and the Israeli governments and his links to Chabad swims into view, as a very likely candidate.
[Weinberg’s] division was charged with understanding how ionizing radiation interacts with living things and to try to find ways to help them survive radiation damage, such as bone marrow transplants.
Man, I feel totally sickened.
And that’s not even all.
There is a body of thought that believes the energy weapon that ole’ Alvin’s buddy, Dr Norman Berg, was busy working on, called HAARP, had something to do with the Fukishima Nuclear Reactor failing, back in 2011.
Watch this short video, for some actual evidence this may be true:
Again, I heard this ‘rumour’ for years, but without a convincing motive, it just made no sense.
Now, we’ve stumbled across a convincing motive:
Alvin Weinberg / Radkowsky, and his team of backers, had new tech to sell to replace ‘unsafe’ uranium with ‘safe’ Thorium, in all nuclear reactors, that can’t be used to create nukes!
And it just so happens, he’s buddies with a guy who worked on HAARP at a top level for the US Defense Ministry…
And, it just so happens, they are both close ‘chossids’ of the late Lubavitcher Rebbe, and are obsessed with beating ‘swords into plowshares’ so they can really prove to the world that Mashiach really did come, already!!!
I mean really, who can make this stuff up?
I’m kind of scared to even look at the last guy – I mean, this post has been mind-blowing enough, already – but let’s finish the job.
Prof. Levi Reiter
I think this is the guy – he’s an audiologist.
We are back to that whole inyan of ‘sound’.
Man, I think I need to go lie down.
How many ‘coincidences’, that put Chabad and it’s Rebbes and its mesichists at the heart of some of the ugliest things occurring in our Jewish world today, does it take, before we finally say enough is enough?
It’s the olam hafuch, the world of lies!
The people who we were brainwashed into thinking of being ‘at the top’ are really at the very bottom, in ways that are coming clearer into view all the time.
How could close chossids of the Rebbe be involved in all this awful science – with his blessing and support – if the Rebbe really was who we want to believe he was?
We’ve already shown that he was capable of fully understanding this type of science.
We know his followers regularly shared information with him.
And yet, people like Alvin Weinberg / Radkowsky, and Norman Berg were not only ‘tolerated’ by the Rebbe and Chabad – they are still being actively lauded by them!
And don’t even get me started on the Chabad ‘pushing’ of Covid 19 vaccines and mandates, that we see with our own eyes still happening today.
This is just so disturbing, on so many levels.
And I can already tell you, we aren’t done yet, uncovering the corruption of Chabad.
We probably only just started.
And that is a truly scary thought.
You can probably tell I got a little ‘taken out’ by discovering that Alvin Radkowsky and Alvin Weinberg look to be the same person.
Here is where you can compare and contrast their Wikipedia pages:
Alvin Radkowsky (1915-2002)
Alvin Weinberg (1915-2006) – this is from the Wayback machine for 2012. The page today, below, looks very different.
It’s a common thing, to just add or detract a few years off the age for the ‘alter ego’ personality – I have been finding this throughout all the research I’ve been doing on all the fake names and dual personas in the Jewish world down the ages.
Now that I’ve calmed down a bit, let’s see how these two people, or ‘personas’ overlap, to see if we can figure out more of what is going on here.
Alvin Weinberg has no wife and children on his Wiki page, but does have some famous relatives.
Weinberg’s sister, Faye, had two children.
One was Daniel Goleman, who hangs out with the Dalai Lama and wrote the ‘Emotional Intelligence‘ book that was a NYT bestseller for 18 months.
(Of course it was! Anything the people in these families do gets ‘promoted’ and puffed, and so success is guaranteed.)
Another was Deborah Goleman Wolfe, author of The Lesbian Community – and mother of famous ‘feminist’ Naomi Wolfe, who in turn was married to Bill Clinton’s speechwriter, David Shipley.
David Shipley now heads up a propaganda outlet you’ve probably heard of, called Bloomberg.
Always, the same people, always the same names.
HERE‘s the Washington Post obit for ‘Alvin Radkowsky’.
HERE is an obit for ‘Alvin Weinberg’ from the Rockefeller Institute, of all places.
‘Alvin Radkowsky’ has a daughter and grandkids in Israel….
‘Alvin Weinberg’ has a son and grandkids in the USA.
Here’s more, from the Wiki page on the Wayback machine for ‘Alvin Weinberg’.
Notice how at the end, it’s talking way more about ‘Alvin Radkowsky’ and stops referring to ‘Alvin Weinberg’.
In 1958 Weinberg coauthored the first Nuclear Reactor textbook, The Physical Theory of Neutron Chain Reactors, with Nobel Laureate Eugene Wigner. He was elected president of the American Nuclear Society in 1959 and began service on President’s Science Advisory Committee the following year, advising Presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy.
Starting in 1945 with Patent #2,736,696, Weinberg, and usually with his friend Eugene Wigner, filed numerous patents on the Light water reactor (LWR) technology that has become our primary nuclear reactors, the main LWR types are Pressurized Water Reactors (PWRs) and Boiling Water Reactors (BWRs), that serve in Naval propulsion and commercial nuclear power.
In 1965 he was appointed vice president of the Union Carbide Corporation‘s Nuclear Division.
Weinberg’s Firing impacts MSR and Thorium based Nuclear Fuel Research
Weinberg was fired by the Nixon Administration from ORNL in 1973 after 18 years as the lab’s director because he continued to advocate increased nuclear safety and Molten Salt Reactors, instead of the Administration’s chosen Liquid Metal Fast Breeder Reactor (LMFBR) that the AEC’s Director of Reactor Division, Milton Shaw, was appointed to develop.
Weinberg’s firing effectively halted development of the MSR, as it was virtually unknown by other nuclear labs and specialists. There was a brief revival of MSR research at ORNL as part of the Carter Administration’s nonproliferation interests, culminating in ORNL-TM-7207: 1980–07, “Conceptual Design Characteristics of a Denatured Molten-Salt Reactor with Once-Through Fueling”, by Engel, et al….
ORNL had also done the majority of research on thorium as a nuclear fuel in other reactors such as PWRs, so Weinberg’s firing reduced thorium’s nuclear fuel research.
The next, and the only demonstration of thorium breeding uranium-233, was during the Carter Administration, when Admiral Rickover, along with his nuclear core designer Dr. Alvin Radkowsky‘s successfully replaced the enriched uranium core with a Seed and Blanket based core using thorium and U-233 in the USA’s first commercial power plant at Shippingport, Pennsylvania to create the Light Water Breeder Reactor (LWBR).
Despite this successful demonstration of net breeding of U-233 fissile from thorium in 1982 in a Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR), no further research or development would be done until the 1990s.
In 1992, Dr. Alvin Radkowsky formed the commercial firm, Thorium Power, Inc. to further develop the LWBR’s Seed and Blanket Unit (SBU) based re-coring of existing PWRs with fuels consisting of mainly thorium instead of uranium-238.
During the 1990s, the Clinton Administration backed Thorium Power’s LWBR technology adaptation to destroy excess Russian military plutonium in proliferation resistant, recorded PWRs (VVER) in Russia with the U.S. DOE’s Initiatives for Proliferation Prevention program funding, and oversight from Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL).
The Russian-USA cooperative venture for peaceful uses of nuclear power, and therefore the Thorium Power, Inc. (now Lightbridge Corporation) program to destroy excess Russian military plutonium in the SBU cored VVER was stopped by the Bush Administration in 2008 after the Russian invasion of Georgia. (US-Russian 123 Agreement was withdrawn from Congress’ consideration in 2008.)
If you go HERE, you get to ‘Alvin Weinberg’s page on Wikipedia as it stands today, where all the references to ‘Alvin Radkowsky’ have now been deleted.
I’m leaving this here for now, and I’ll put it across to you, dear readers, to help me solve more of this mystery.
I have a feeling this is perhaps one of the biggest rabbit holes of all, that I just tripped into. But who’s got the energy, to keep doing this?
That is the question.
More links between ‘Thorium Reactors’, New World Orders, China – and of course, Bill Gates.
Screenshot from HERE, from 2012:
Here’s another very technical post, that seems to suggest that ‘Alvin Radkowsky’, the Lubavitcher chossid, seamlessly took over from ‘Alvin Weinberg’, the guy who is in the frame for doing radiation experiments on Sephardi children in Israel in the 1950s, on behalf of the US military, and who was apparently fired by Richard Nixon:
I tried to find a picture of ‘Alvin Radkowsky’, to pin down more if he’s a separate person, or an alter ego.
I came up with this:
If this picture is authentic, then it seems we ARE dealing with two separate ‘Alvins’, who both had the same job for the US military, one after another, and who were both connected with developing Thorium nuclear reactors.
That’s quite a tall order, but it’s possible.
There is a lot of stuff being covered up here, as usual, which is why all this is so confusing.
But with God’s help, we’ll continue trying to do the birur.
UPDATE 4: From a reader
Who put this comparison together:
Here’s a page on Alvin Weinberg with an older pic of him at the bottom of the page at the other end of the 3-pic montage from the younger one: https://web.archive.org/web/20151123103342/http://www.the-weinberg-foundation.org/learn/alvin-weinberg/On a more relevant level, both Wikipedia pages have an Awards section. Apparently, Radkowsky received an award from Weinberg’s foundation, but nothing vice versa. Here are the relevant bits:WeinbergRadkowsky
- U.S. Navy’s Distinguished Civilian Service Award.
- U.S. Navy’s Meritorious Civilian Service Award.
- Elected in 1991 to the National Academy of Engineering.
- Fellow of the American Physical Society.
- Fellow of the American Nuclear Society.
- ANS Alvin M. Weinberg Medal for outstanding international technical and policy leadership in nuclear science and technology, 2001.
From what I can tell, Radkowsky designed the thorium reactor, and Weinberg championed it until he got fired for his advocacy.The problem for the rest of us is whether thorium is really safer and more economical than uranium. But for that, we can ask India. They’re using it now. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thorium-based_nuclear_powerI think someone would have had to do a lot of work to combine these two people W & R — or separate one person (W/R) into two — to get these different profiles.
The Thorium stuff is interesting.
UPDATE 5: CHABAD BUYS ‘LAND’ IN THE METAVERSE
This from another reader:
There’s a crypto called Decentraland (MANA).Basically you buy virtual land (some of it sells for millions of dollars) in the metaverse.There are 2 big virtual land metaverses; Sandbox and Decentraland. The question is which will win out. Anyway, Chabad recently bought some virtual land on MANA and built a virtual Bet Midrash there; this is being hailed as the first virtual shul and gathering point for frum Yidden in the metaverse.My first question was how much did they pay for the land there and who financed it, because it’s not cheap.My second is now the metaverse is kosher? I’m disturbed over this.MANA will probably be the big land metaverse overtaking SAND, considering Chabad bought there and they seem to have a good pulse on the direction things are going… I’m sending the article link below so you can find out more. When will the global metaverse Noahide center be opening next 😼?
