US Nuclear Plants Expanding Long-Term Waste Storage Facilities
Well sure. It was an incredible find for the opponents, and an incredibly sloppy move on behalf of USGS. But the science was redone by Sandia Laboratories and it, not the prior science, was submitted to the NRC during the licensing process.
The POLITICS of Yucca was that Harry Reid did not want it, Obama had a Nobel prize winner (Chu) illegally cancel the project by pulling the license. The two had the NRC deliberately disobey a law, passed by Congress and signed by the prior President. A Federal court has so ruled that to be the case - http://www.world-nuclear-news.....
But again, the POLITICS of Yucca, left a site and Congressional mandate unable to move because there is no funding.

Russia Wants To Establish a Permanent Moon Base
No. Putin views things in black and white. Just like his pre-perestroika predecessors. He views this exactly as they viewed the race to the moon in the 60's. It doesn't have to be a zero-sum game, but as any Russian will tell you - once KGB, always KGB

Mac OS 10.9's Mail App — Infinity Times Your Spam
It's certainly not the only bug in 10.9 Mail.
Watch the Mail Activity section when receiving or sending mail. I have no idea what it's counting.
When I receive two emails and it says receiving 415 and 416 of 416 I kinda get concerned.
When sending one, sending 6 of 6... again, what is it counting?
And set up a smart folder that is all Unread mail. Set it up and watch that it's not very smart... Like it really can't tract unread mail at all...
Ask Slashdot: How Do You Choose Frameworks That Will Survive?
The problem is you're thinking about it all wrong. The decisions were probably all right at the time. If you think there's a crystal ball that will tell you what the future will bring, you're going to look long and hard. The right decision is right for now. The best you can do is design so that moving to something else is possible instead of painful.
