Japan anti-nuclear governor quits over sex scandal 18.4.2018 General News
An anti-nuclear Japanese governor stepped down today after a magazine alleged he paid university students for sex, a resignation that could boost the government's plan to restart the country's mothballed reactors. Ryuichi Yoneyama was elected governor of Niigata prefecture in 2016 on a pledge to prevent the restarting of the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa power station, the world's biggest nuclear plant, about 200 kilometres (130 miles) northwest of Tokyo. His unexpected victory, in which he narrowly beat a government-supported candidate, posed a challenge for the pro-nuclear policy of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Yoneyama, a 50-year-old unmarried doctor and lawyer, paid women in their 20s to have sex, according to the Shukan Bunshun weekly magazine. "I decided to step down to avoid further turmoil and to take responsibility for my actions," he told reporters, bowing deeply in front of the cameras. "It was hard to find someone to date... I did give gifts and money to get attention" from the women, .

Westinghouse emerging from bankruptcy, capable of delivering India nuclear reactors: Perry 17.4.2018 General News
US Energy Secretary Rick Perry said today that Westinghouse Electric Co is emerging out of bankruptcy and is now capable of delivering the planned six nuclear reactors to India on time. On his first visit to India, Perry said India must look at "broad portfolio" of energy sources to deliver reliable electricity to its growing population and not just at affordability. Civil nuclear cooperation has been a cornerstone of US-India relations. The 2016 deal, under which Westinghouse was to build six AP1000 reactors in Andhra Pradesh, was concluded after more than a decade of diplomatic efforts. But it was in limbo after Westinghouse in March last year filed for bankruptcy following an estimated USD 13 billion of cost overruns at two US projects. "The most important development is that Westinghouse is coming out of its bankruptcy" by shedding problematic parts of the company, Perry said.
