Washington Times:Georgia regulators say nuclear reactors, nation’s first since 1978, will be finished

The unanimous vote of the five-member Georgia Public Service Commission (PSC) will have reverberations across the nation and the energy sector; if the panel had stopped the expansion of the Plant Vogtle facility, it would have cast serious doubt on whether it’s commercially feasible to build a new nuclear reactor in the U.S.

Deadline slippage, delays, and the bankruptcy of Westinghouse increase the cost drastically.

The $25 bin project is years behind schedule. The short version is 6000 new construction jobs, 800 permanent jobs to follow. The project will now be more like a coop as the Georgia Power plant will be forced to pay back monies to customers.

The two new reactors at the Vogtle site, located just south of Augusta, would be the first such new facilities put into operation nationwide since 1978.

CNBC:Apple sued after it admits to slowing down older iPhones

* Apple is being sued after it admitted to slowing down older iPhone models to keep them running longer

* Both plaintiffs are claiming damages

Bonus: iPhoneX face ID doesn’t work on Chinese faces. Merry Christmas.

SKY News:May ‘aware’ of reports of Russian spy in No 10

So… this guy who likes to be photographed, served as a translator to the Ukrainian PM may have been collecting public domain information at 10 Downing St. He was later busted for espionage in the Ukraine.

Amateur. Like a hay hauler that doesn’t show up with hooks, gloves, tape, or even water.

DallasMorningNews: Love Field gets back on track after small fire forces evacuation, delays

About 6am there was a fire in the air conditioner at Love Field. There was an evacuation for 30 minutes. At 7am flights were taking off again. At 8:50a everything was normal.

It took longer to type that!

Fox:Las Vegas shooting: FBI official says info on motive may take until next October to release

Want to finally know why Stephen Paddock gunned down 58 people in Las Vegas in early October?
Be prepared to wait a while – possibly until next October – the chief of the FBI’s Las Vegas office revealed this week during an interview in which he said the agency probably wouldn’t brief the public until their report is released sometime before the tragedy’s first anniversary.

This story stinks. We suspect cover up. I think this feller was an operative and something went sour.
