Here's how it work,

  1. the reactor heats pressurized water in the primary loop
  2. the hot pressurized water in the primary loop heats the very pure treated water in the secondary loop and boils it,
  3. the cooler primary loop water returns to the reactor for reheating
  4. the high pressure steam in the secondary loop propels the turbine to make the alternator turn,
  5. the turbine exhaust consisting of steam is piped into the condensers inside the cooling tower,
  6. external water is sprayed on the hot condenser pipe creating steam, which is lighter than air,
  7. the rising steam creates a slight vacuum inside the cooling tower that draws in large amounts of air to further cool the condensers.
  8. the secondary loop water is returned to be reheated

So anything you can see has 3 degrees of separation from the reactor

Wow you're right, it was at least a couple months instead of few weeks. The Clinton Foundation (founded in 1997 as the William J. Clinton Foundation), has it's listing first crawl on Sept 2nd, 2016! Makes one wonder what happened to the other 18 years. The William J. Clinton Foundation is listed separately, the "Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation" isn't listed separately and the Clinton Global Initiative wasn't listed.

Charity Navigator is a leading and respected organization that evaluates and rates charities so donors can make informed decisions about contributions. It was itself a member of the Clinton Global Initiative between 2012 and 2014. Charity watchdog gives Clinton Foundation the highest possible rating

See that's going to set off the conspiracy theorists and it's a good example of what I'm talking about; there are so many entities ready to spasm-out every time somebody yells squirrel; while all of the whacko's are out there jousting with windmills, it's distracting people from issue with substance. It's getting to the point where every time I see a sensational headline stating "This will bury Hillary", I figure she's the one who put it out there to begin with.

The odd thing about the rating from Charity Navigator rating is a few weeks ago I checked the Clinton Foundation there, they were de-rated, not having an understandable business plan, now they're listed with a good rating!
Obviously somebody is trolling somebody, but you can't tell who

Well maybe Trump hasn't done anything particularly outrageous other than a few sophomoric ramblings from a decade ago and some ill-thought out sentence fragments more recently while trying to pander to a particular group.
Anything Trump does is over-shadowed by the Clinton campaign.
Example Trump is outed by a hot-mic in a sophomoric claim that female groupies let him fondle their genitals and kiss them because he's a star. Just when this is starting to get some traction he apologises.
Then we find out the recording was edited, so we wouldn't hear Billy Bush egging him on.
After that several women come forward with similar claims we then find out the Democratic Super PAC Correct the Record was paying them.

Over and over again, anything that Clinton says about Trump, she has done herself, done worse, done for longer or has enabled someone else to have done worse.

Beckel said. “This guy’s a traitor, he’s treasonous, and he has broken every law of the United States. And I’m not for the death penalty, so...there’s only one way to do it: illegally shoot the son of a bitch.”

I suppose you think Geraldo Rivera is a conservative republican too, a token liberal, but they are hardy a conservative. What you're not noticing is Assange is specifically targeting Clinton and he doing that because he's actually read the diplomatic cables stolen by Manning and he knows the difference between Clinton's public position and her private position. He is literally trying to protect the world from Hillary Clinton and the world need the protection.

Sorry, too busy pondering what would happen if Trump were CIC. Didn't he say he would carpet bomb ISIS and steal the oil? He knows more about ISIS than "tha generals". K then, Like I said,: too busy pondering Armageddon under Trump....

Yes he said that, but I think he meant "I knows more about ISIS than the generals that haven't been purged"; the Obama administration has lost a lot of good men in the military.
