Toshiba flags hit of 'billions of dollars' on US nuclear acquisition 29.12.2016 DNA: Money
Toshiba Corp said it may have to book several billion dollars in charges related to a US nuclear power plant construction company acquisition, sending its stock tumbling 12% and rekindling concerns about its accounting acumen. The Japanese group said cost overruns at US power projects handled by the CB&I Stone & Webster Inc business it acquired last December from Chicago Bridge & Iron Company NV (CB&I) would be much greater than initially expected, potentially requiring a huge writedown. Toshiba's announcement came as its Westinghouse Electric Company subsidiary is engaged in a legal and accounting row with CB&I, which has argued in court that it expected a relatively small payment from Westinghouse of only $161 million when the deal closed on the understanding that the latter was taking on a challenged business. Toshiba's latest writedown would be another slap in the face for a sprawling conglomerate hoping to recover from a $1.3-billion accounting scandal, as well as a writedown of more than $2 billion ...

Donald Trump picks former Texas Governor Rick Perry as energy secretary 13.12.2016 DNA: Recent Columns
President-elect Donald Trump has chosen former Texas Governor Rick Perry to head the U.S. Department of Energy, a source close to the transition said, putting him in charge of an agency he proposed eliminating during his bid for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. The department is responsible for U.S. energy policy and oversees the nation's nuclear weapons program. Perry has advocated lighter regulation on the fossil fuel industry, and has called the science around climate change "unsettled." The selection of Perry, who also had been mentioned as a candidate for agriculture secretary, was disclosed on Monday night after Perry met the president-elect at Trump Tower in New York. Perry's proposal to get rid of the Energy Department caused what has become known as his "oops" moment during a November 2011 Republican presidential candidate debate when he could not remember all the Cabinet-level departments he wanted to eliminate. "It's three agencies of government when I get there that are gone: ...

'Star in a Jar' reactor for infinite energy in the offing 12.12.2016 DNA: Wide Angle
Scientists have taken a big step towards developing a 'Star in a Jar' nuclear fusion reactor that can provide Earth with limitless clean energy in the same manner as the Sun and other stars. The Wendelstein 7-X (W7-X) fusion energy device currently operated by Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics in Germany is on track and working as planned, researchers said. The system, known as a stellerator, generated its first batch of hydrogen plasma when it was first fired up earlier this year. The new tests basically give scientists the green light to proceed to the next stage of the process. A fusion reactor works by fusing the nuclei of lighter atoms into heavier atoms, unlike a traditional fission reactor which splits atoms of heavy elements to generate energy. The process releases massive amounts of energy and produces no radioactive waste. The "fuel" used in a fusion reactor is simple hydrogen, which can be extracted from water. However, to achieve fusion, scientists must generate enormously high ...
