Jimalee Burton

Jimalee Chitwood Burton known as Ho-Chee-Nee, was an American writer and lecturer of Creek-Cherokee ancestry. Jimalee Chitwood was born on January 23, 1906 in El Reno, the first child of James Alexander Chitwood and Mary Caroline Burger Chitwood, her father was a Cherokee who worked as a rider for the Pony Express and had moved from Texas to Indian Territory during the Land Rush of 1889. In 1949, Burton's oil painting Buffalo Dance was showcased at the Philbrook Museum of Art's annual Native American painting competition, she became the first woman to exhibit at the event and received the "Third Purchase Prize for the Woodland Region". How the Boy Medicine Came to the Kiowas, an oil painting on canvas, completed by Burton in the "mid-20th century", is now housed at the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Burton was a prolific writer. In 1979, Burton's anthology of poems and traditional stories, titled Indian Heritage, Indian Pride: Stories That Touched My Life, was released by the University of Oklahoma Press.

She pledged all of her royalties to the construction of a Cherokee chapel. Burton edited The Native Voice for fifteen years. Jimalee Chitwood married radio personality Dan "Smiling Dan" Burton in 1933 until his death; the couple did not have any children together, although Dan Burton had a son from a previous marriage.

Thalotia is a genus of sea snails, marine gastropod mollusks in the family Trochidae, the top snails. The thick, solid shell is elevated-conical, granulated or spirally ribbed; the periphery is obtusely angular. The small aperture is ovate; the outer lip is crenulated within. The columella is subtruncated. Species within the genus Thalotia include: Thalotia beluchistana Melvill, J. C. 1897 Thalotia conica Thalotia elongata Sowerby, G. B.

Mário Zagallo

Mário Jorge Lobo Zagallo is a Brazilian former football player and manager, who played as a forward. He holds the record for World Cup titles in general with 4 titles in total, he was the first person to win the FIFA World Cup as both a manager and as a player, winning the competition in 1958 and 1962 as a player, in 1970 as manager and in 1994 as assistant manager. Zagallo coached Brazil in 1974 and in 1998 and was a technical assistant in 2006 reaching the quarterfinal, he is one of three men, along with Germany's Franz Beckenbauer and France's Didier Deschamps to have won the World Cup as a player and as a manager and the only one that has done it 4 times. In 1992 Zagallo received the FIFA Order of Merit, the highest honour awarded by FIFA, for his contributions to football, he was named the World Soccer Magazine 9th Greatest Manager of All Time in 2013 Zagallo started his football career with América in 1948, he played for Flamengo and Botafogo. He won the World Cup as a player with Brazil in 1962.

At the time of the 1958 tournament he was a Flamengo player but by the 1962 event he was with Botafogo. He won a total of 33 caps for Brazil between 1958 and 1964. Zagallo was a diminutive left winger with a small physique, known for his technical skills and his high defensive work-rate, as well as his ability to make attacking runs from deeper areas of the pitch, he was capable of playing as a forward, either as a main striker, or as an inside forward. Zagallo won the World Cup as a manager in 1970, as assistant coach in 1994, both with Brazil, he was the first person to win the World Cup both as a manager. Winning the World Cup in 1970 at the age of 38, he is the second youngest coach to win a World Cup, after Alberto Suppici, who won aged 31 with Uruguay in 1930. Zagallo married Alcina de Castro on 13 January 1955 at the Church of Capuchins in Rio de Janeiro and they remained together until her death on 5 November 2012. Mário and Alcina had four children, he is a practicing Roman Catholic. Zagallo was nicknamed the professor by his players throughout his career, due to his tactical awareness and commanding presence on the bench.

He was nicknamed Velho Lobo due to his surname "Lobo", which means "wolf".

Neutron embrittlement

Neutron embrittlement, sometimes more broadly radiation embrittlement, is the embrittlement of various materials due to the action of neutrons. This is seen in nuclear reactors, where the release of high-energy neutrons causes the long-term degradation of the reactor materials; the embrittlement is caused by the microscopic movement of atoms. Neutron embrittlement mechanisms include: Hardening and dislocation pinning due to nanometer features created by irradiation Generation of lattice defects in collision cascades via the high-energy recoil atoms produced in the process of neutron scattering. Diffusion of major defects, which leads to higher amounts of solute diffusion, as well as formation of nanoscale defect-solute cluster complexes, solute clusters, distinct phases. Neutron irradiation embrittlement limits the service life of reactor-pressure vessels in nuclear power plants due to the degradation of reactor materials. In order to perform at high efficiency and safely contain coolant water at temperatures around 290ºC and pressures of ~7 MPa to 14 MPa, the RPV must be heavy-section steel.

Due to regulations, RPV failure probabilities must be low. To achieve sufficient safety, the design of the reactor assumes large cracks and extreme loading conditions. Under such conditions, a probable failure mode is rapid, catastrophic fracture if the vessel steel is brittle. Tough RPV base metals that are used are A302B, A533B plates, or A508 forgings. Over the past few decades, RPV embrittlement has been addressed by the use of tougher steels with lower trace impurity contents, the decrease of neutron flux that the vessel is subject to, the elimination of beltline welds. However, embrittlement remains an issue for older reactors. Pressurized water reactors are more susceptible to embrittlement than boiling water reactors; this is due to PWRs sustaining more neutron impacts. To counteract this, many PWRs have a specific core design that reduces the number of neutrons hitting the vessel wall. Moreover, PWR designs must be mindful of embrittlement because of pressurized thermal shock, an accident scenario that occurs when cold water enters a pressurized reactor vessel, introducing large thermal stress.

This thermal stress may cause fracture. "Backgrounder on Reactor Pressure Vessel Issues". Nuclear Regulatory Commission. February 2016. Pu, Jue. "Radiation Embrittlement". Stanford University. Specific
