James P. Malone
Chief Nuclear Fuel Development Officer

James Malone has more than four decades of high-level experience in the nuclear industry, including extensive experience in all aspects of fuel procurement and management. In late 2009, Mr. Malone retired after a decade with Exelon Generation Company, where as vice president of Nuclear Fuels he provided strategic direction and tactical guidance for Exelon’s nuclear fuel cycle activities. He was responsible for procurement (uranium, conversion, enrichment, and fuel fabrication) for seventeen operating nuclear reactors—PWRs and BWRs—and his expertise guided the management of used fuel. Mr. Malone’s responsibilities also included special nuclear material accounting and safeguards, economics, and fuel cycle costs. Under Mr. Malone’s supervision, the Nuclear Fuels department provided reload bundle and core design, safety analysis, and plant technical support, including fuel reliability, component procurement strategy, and decommissioning strategy.

Before joining Exelon, Mr. Malone served for ten years as vice president and senior consultant at NAC International, where he consulted on fuel reliability and the front and back ends of the nuclear fuel cycle, among other issues. One of his last projects at NAC was the international safeguards system for the Rokkasho Mura reprocessing plant in Japan. Mr. Malone also worked for many years at SWUCO, Inc., first as a nuclear fuel broker, then as manager of technical services, and finally as vice president. Prior to SWUCO, Mr. Malone was manager of economic analysis at Yankee Atomic, where his work led to important decisions on fuel type and design. Mr. Malone began his career in nuclear power in 1968 as an engineer in the utility reactor core analysis section of the Nuclear Engineering Department of United Nuclear Corporation, where his duties included bundle and core design for the Dresden 1 and Yankee Rowe reactors.

Mr. Malone is a member of the American Nuclear Society and past chairman of its Fuel Cycle Waste Management Division. He holds a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering (nuclear) from Manhattan College and an MBA from Iona College, where he was awarded the Graduate School of Business Award for Academic Excellence.

JFACEBOOK: Phelps, Stephen E. Jr. (MC1968) “explodes” the petard

2014-Feb-23

FROM FACEBOOK

Phelps, Stephen E. Jr. (MC1968) 

A petard is an explosive device; you can’t “hang” from one. The Shakespeare quote that John is so endearingly groping for in his pointless diatribe is:

“There’s letters seal’d, and my two schoolfellows,
Whom I will trust as I will adders fang’d—
They bear the mandate, they must sweep my way
And marshal me to knavery. Let it work;
For ’tis the sport to have the enginer
Hoist with his own petard, an’t shall go hard
But I will delve one yard below their mines
And blow them at the moon.”
- Hamlet Act 3, Scene 4

[JR: Thanks from the sidelines. Jump in the Arena. Why is his distribe pointless? And this fat old white guy injineer got his point. Laff! (Never like shakespeare much. too hard to read. I though Heinlein was better.)]

POSITRACTION: Phelps, Stephen E. Jr. (MC1968) finds a lesson for us all

2014-Jan-26

Dear ‘Daddy’ in Seat 16C
Posted: 01/13/2014 8:22 am

*** begin quote ***

Dear “Daddy,”

I don’t know your name, but Kate called you “daddy” for the entire flight last week and you kindly never corrected her. In fact, you didn’t even flinch as you could probably tell that she was not confusing you with her own “daddy,” but instead making a judgment regarding your level of “safety” for her. If she calls you “daddy” then you better believe she thinks you are alright.

I sat Kate, my 3-year-old who has autism, in the middle seat knowing full well that there would be a stranger sitting next to her for the duration of this flight. I had to make a quick decision and based on her obsession with opening and closing the window shade, I figured she might be less of a distraction if she sat in the middle. I watched the entire Temple basketball team board the plane, and wondered if one of these giants might sit by Kate. They all moved toward the back. She would have liked that, she would have made some observations that I would have had to deal with, but she would have liked those players. I watched many Grandmotherly women board and hoped for one to take the seat but they walked on by. For a fleeting moment I thought we might have a free seat beside us, and then you walked up and sat down with your briefcase and your important documents and I had a vision of Kate pouring her water all over your multi-million dollar contracts, or house deeds, or whatever it was you held. The moment you sat down, Kate started to rub your arm. Your jacket was soft and she liked the feel of it. You smiled at her and she said: “Hi, Daddy, that’s my mom.” Then she had you.

*** and ***

Not long before we landed Kate had reached her limit. She screamed to have her seatbelt off, she screamed for me to open the plane door and she cried repeating, “Plane is cwosed (closed)” over and over. You tried to redirect her attention to her toys. She was already too far gone at this point, but the fact that you tried to help your new little friend made me emotional.

In case you are wondering, she was fine the moment we stepped off the plane. Thank you for letting us go ahead of you. She was feeling overwhelmed and escaping the plane and a big, long hug was all she needed.

So, thank you. Thank you for not making me repeat those awful apologetic sentences that I so often say in public. Thank you for entertaining Kate so much that she had her most successful plane ride, yet. And, thank you for putting your papers away and playing turtles with our girl.

*** end quote ***

The next time I’m somewhere with a non-somnambulant (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/somnambulant) child that’s disturbing me, I will remember this lesson.

I hope I can measure up to this “Daddy”.

At the same time, the picture of a beautiful child, befuddled by autism, makes me frustrated.

With all our “science”, we understand so little.

At least with dementia in the elderly and not so “old”, one can say “they had a life”. With this child, and too many others, they have been truly robbed.

Instead of Gooferment wasting money on things of dubious value, I wish they robbed me, and all of us, so that I could set the priorities for funding research.

As much as wished for a cure for my wife, I much more wish for a cure for this little girl.

Kudos and BZ to whoever this “Daddy” was. You’ve taught me a lesson.
