This also takes up a lot of land and there are issues with soil depletion and environmental loss. A rough calculation on solar conversion for plants shows that if we use up about ten percent of US agricultural land we get about three to five percent of total energy requirements.
If we wanted to fill in for all solar and wind gaps we would need much more. Why not spread solar out across a large land mass? In places like the North American continent this reduces the gap to maybe fourteen hours at a minimum. We can do better across North Africa but we need to duplicate the solar plants and build the transmission grid.
We could try to use potential energy for storage by pumping water into high damns or even moving rail cars full or rocks uphill. Water might work for small countries with high mountains. In places like the US we would need to expand our storage about twenty-five times, and most of the best sites have already been used.
Instead of potential energy use kinetic energy from inertia by constructing giant flywheels? This might help a bit but it is expensive and complicated. Wait for them to be invented? Off peak storage in electric vehicles? Changing consumer demand to fit the humps? Maybe people want to cook and watch television after dark. At this point we might ask, why exclude nuclear anyway? A sensible answer would have to be that the risks of including nuclear energy in the supply chain are greater than the risks of failing to make the required emissions cuts.
Nuclear energy has dangers, in the same way as air travel or medical procedures or food supply, and it needs to be handled thoughtfully. It is easy to exaggerate the risk here. If we want to include non-commercial reactors without safety features Chernoybl gives about 50 deaths with a projected addition of maybe 4, For perspective well over a million people die every year on the road and about the same number from burning coal. What is important, however, is not that the figures are small, but that the risks are controllable.
There is some risk associated with waste. This also has to be handled carefully, but a lot of the concern misunderstands the quantities involved and thee technology. The quantities are small and are usually stored on the site. With already available technology most of the remainder can be reused.
Put differently you could run a fast neutron reactor for about years from what is currently called waste.
This still leaves about a milk crate in volume of radioactive material per reactor per year. This has a life of about years. From the viewpoint of spreading the technology the marginal increase in the risk of proliferation is small. A second proliferation issue is waste as weapons. But there is always terrorism. That is usually enough to win the argument, unless we stop to think what our terrorists are meant to do. Flying a plane into a nuclear power station is a common fear.
Most new build reactors are similar to a Westinghouse AP This building is a reinforced concrete and steel structure with walls about cm to protect it from missiles and aircraft and the core is protected by a one piece steel containment vessel about five cm thick.
Chances of penetrating the containment vessel from a direct hit are estimated at zero. In fact, if a terrorist were organized enough to steal something like a completely laden with fuel and wanted to kill someone, there are many events that regularly draw crowds of over These are relatively easy to hit. There was another child who was born and passed away from pneumonia at that time.
My sister, Mildred and I were both born in Johnstown. I just wanted to get some background and this is perfect. So you think the reason your father moved to these small communities from Cleveland was so that he could establish his own business areas because he was independent?
He was independent and like I said, he had such a likable personality, it was easy for him to make friends. He had a lot of friends that he made along the way. When we moved to Johnstown, my father opened up a store called the Racket Store. It was a general merchandise store. We lived there, of course, for a number of years. On her way, she stopped in Johnstown and fell in love with the younger brother of my mother and the two of them lived with us in Johnstown, also.
So we had a little family of our own there. Do you remember any Jewish families there? There were no Jewish families in Johnstown.
We were the only Jewish family there. We had a lot of nice friends we made there including the Ashbrook family. Ashbrook became a representative from Ohio in the government and he was the banker in the city and helped my father a great deal as far as the financing of the business was concerned.
I was six years old when my father became ill and, my mother, not wishing to leave him in Cleveland and us in Johnstown, moved us all to Cleveland for a period of about one year.B-Brave - One Night Stand ft. Sevn Alias
Someone else was running the store at time. My younger brother was born in Cleveland and eventually my father regained his health and we moved to Sunbury, Ohio where we opened up another store. What happened to the store in Johnstown? Anyhow, we lived in Sunbury for a number of years. Sunbury is outside of. I went to school there in Sunbury and then inwe moved to Columbus.
We continued to run the store in Sunbury. It was the Racket Store, also. It sounds like it was a little department store, a dry goods store. It was a large store. Most men had only overalls and maybe a suit that they got married in.

We sold shoes, household furnishings, yard goods and we had a grocery department. The farmers would bring their eggs in and trade their eggs for merchandise. We had a lot of yard goods because women made their clothes in those days. That was our store in Sunbury and in Johnstown.

So your dad turned out to be successful. My dad was a very successful merchant and eventually the store was turned over to my older brother and my sister, who married Will Welbur. They lived in Mt. Gilead and opened up a store there. The same kind of store? The same thing and they lived there for three or four years. My sister and Will had the store called The Union. Then my sister became pregnant with their second child and died in childbirth.
At that time, my brother-in-law did not want to remain there any longer so he moved to Columbus, also. He opened up a store in Columbus on High Street. It was on North High Street. He was in business there for a good number of years. What kind of store was it? Then Will moved to South Bend and opened up a large store there called Roberts and lived in South Bend for the remainder of his life. I went to school at East High School. I met my husband when I was in my senior year at high school and we married.
What was he doing at that time? He was in service. He was just out of service when I met him and he had been an athlete all his life. He played baseball and football. In fact, he was a member of one of the earliest football teams and is in the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

I met him at a baseball game. Just to go back a little. She came from a long line of Frankels. There are a lot of Frankels in this country.
So you met your husband. What was his name? And he was already out of high school? He had been in service. He had been stationed at Camp Sherman in Chillicothe and was head of the salvage department. My father-in-law was in the scrap iron business and Harry understood salvage so he was put in charge of the salvage department in Chillicothe.
He remained there throughout the war. Can you explain a little more about salvage. Is there some background about salvage?
Something to do with scrap. Some type of military scrap, possibly? I imagine that had something to do with it. It is interesting that you mention this because we were the only Jewish family, as I said, in this small community but my father taught us a great deal about the Bible. He would read to us out of the Bible and explain it to us in a way that we could understand.
BLOOMFIELD NOTES #6: BARRY GOLDBERG INTERVIEW
Then, when we were old enough to go to Sunday School, we would take a train every Sunday morning from Sunbury and ride into Columbus — that was our transportation — to go to Sunday School. Then after we moved here, my sister and I were confirmed at Temple Israel. Just a little curious about the train ride. Did someone accompany you? My father always brought us in. And after we moved to Columbus, we joined the Tifereth Israel congregation and he became very active in Tifereth Israel which at that time was on Washington Avenue, I believe.
Then later, when it became time for them to build a temple on Broad Street. He was very active in building the temple. In fact, we had the gold spade for many years that turned the first shovel of dirt for the new temple.
So he really was. One of the founders of Tifereth Israel. Do you remember any other people who might have been involved? Were the Schlezingers from Tifereth Israel? Somehow or other, I associated them with Agudas Achim.
They were founders of it. Were you related to Minnie Goldberg? The Goldbergs are not Goldbergs. Their name was Auerbach. When my father-in-law came to this country, being afraid that he would be taken back for military service, he took the name of Goldberg. Then he told us the story. You mentioned your siblings. Can you fill us in on their names and who their children might have been and where they ended up as far as living the important parts of their lives? Well, my oldest sister graduated high school in Cleveland, Ohio.
That was the time we moved there for a year. She met her husband, Will Welbur, in Cleveland. He was from Minessa, Pennsylvania but was visiting there at the time she met him. Her name was Sadie. She had the one child?
She had the one child.
My brother, who was three years younger than my sister, married and had a son by the name of Donald who passed away when he was in his thirties from melanoma cancer. And my sister, Mildred, married Allen Tarshish. She was very active in Sisterhood and in the Temple activities. Then I had a younger brother by the name of Nelson. He was a bachelor and he said that his mother and his sisters were his sweethearts. He was very devoted to us. He had a lot of girlfriends but we were his sweethearts. Now your sister, Mildred Tarshish, she had children?
Yes, a daughter by the name of Marilyn and she married Michael Weiner of Boston. Do you remember, as a youngster, having any childhood illnesses?
Those kinds of diseases? I suppose we did have but there was nothing important as far as our illnesses were concerned. Do you have any other relatives that you remember as a young child? Your father came over with one brother. What happened to that uncle? Well, they all lived in Cleveland. My mother was one of ten children. So you had a lot of relatives. And the younger brother met his wife when she came to visit my father.
They lived with us for a good many years. Eventually they moved to Cincinnati and they opened up theaters there. They were among the first Nickelodeon Theaters that he opened up in Cincinnati.
We became interested in theaters so we invested with him. At one time, we owned what was the Majestic Theater here in Columbus and there was also another theater that was in the Neil House block. The other theater was on Main Street where the Southern Hotel was. That was called the Victor Theater. I recently interviewed Joseph Summer and he made mention of some of the movie theaters downtown.
And they included what you were just telling us about so that reconfirms another possibility for us in the background of Columbus. You mentioned that you went to East High School. I went to school in Johnstown. Then I went to school in Cleveland for the year that I was there when my father was ill. I went to school with her. Another little playmate I had was Eunice Halley and she married Ralph Rosenthal who lived here in Columbus later in life. Violet moved to Columbus and we were friends for many years, until Violet passed away a couple years ago.
Do you remember how your family celebrated holidays? Your father was in the retail business. Was there a halt during important holidays? Did he close the store? My father was very religious. He always put on his tiffilin in the morning. We were taught our prayers. So you were away when holidays came along.
We celebrated all the holidays. Was your family religious to the point of keeping kosher? That was a treat but for the most part, we lived on vegetables. In fact, I was a vegetarian until after I was married. That was before it was even fashionable. Do you remember as a youngster, how you all participated in responsibilities at home? Since we had the store and my mother and father were together always they were always very much in love with one another and were sweetheartsmy father never went anyplace without my mother.
Did she work in the store with him? She was in the store with him. When we went home at night, he helped in the kitchen getting meals together for all of us. But we were raised in the store and as children, we played in the store. What were your recollections of some political and social periods of that time? I was married at the time. I remember it very well. At that time, we lived in Bexley on Cassingham Road. The people who owned it then are no longer living.
Did it affect you and your husband as a family? We were quite well established. Naturally, we had to pull in and I do remember we ate a lot of salmon which was inexpensive at that time.
And other foods that were inexpensive. We cut back on what we were doing. Yes, we were aware of it. Can you give us a little background about what you remember about transportation? You mentioned taking the train from Sunbury. Not everybody had cars at that time. Very few people had cars at that time. I remember one of the first cars I had ever seen was the one car in Johnstown at the time. Do you remember any prices of things from years back? Of course, prices today compared to what the prices were then, it seems impossible that we bought a loaf of bread for five cents.
Well, salaries were quite a bit lower than they are now, too. It seems it was a lot easier at that time to buy things. We had the store and I would invite all my friends in to have candy at the store, not knowing that my father was paying for it. I thought it was all free. That was penny candy, right?
What was your life like in high school? Do you have good memories of your high school years? Well, I walked to school. We lived on Bryden Road on the last block. East High School was near Miller Avenue and beyond. I walked to and from high school most of the time. With your sisters and brothers? Most of the time, alone. I was the only one going to high school. Did you have friendships in high school that you maintained years later? Yes, I do remember quite a few of the girls who grew up in the community that I was friendly with.
Did you work during the school years? My father, as I said, was ill and my mother and father had to go to Florida. So, starting aboutevery winter, they went to Florida.
My younger brother went to Staunton Military School and so he was away all winter. My sister, Mildred, went to Florida with my parents. Mildred was in a lower grade so she went to school in Florida. The Florida schools were not quite as good as our schools up here, so it was very difficult keeping up with them. However, Mildred managed and eventually she graduated school and went to Ohio State University, became a journalist and even worked on one of the papers down in Florida years later when she graduated from college and received her journalism degree.
She had a pretty good background and did well. Did your siblings and you go to summer camp? Your entertainment was in the store and at home? My father had a garden and we helped him.
Was there any organized social life at all? Or was it just getting together with your friends? You were tied up with the business? When we lived in Sunbury and were the only Jewish family there, there was another Jewish family in Centerburg by the name of Spira and there was another Jewish family in Mt.
Vernon by the name of Lurie. We all used to get together on Sundays and we would have a family dinner together. It was quite a little crowd. As children, we grew up with their children, knowing their children.
What businesses were those families in? Mr Spira, I think, had a bank and was in the loan business. He probably had a store of some kind. Is this the same Lurie family who still live family here in Columbus? Benjamin Lurie was the father.
