Title: RADIOACTIVE: The Women of Three Mile Island
Genre: Documentary,Meet the Filmmaker
Director: Heidi Hutner
RADIOACTIVE: The Women of Three Mile Island, is an award-winning documentary about the 1979 Three Mile Island nuclear reactor meltdown, the worst commercial nuclear accident in U.S. history. It focuses on never-before-told stories of four intrepid homemakers, two lawyers who took the local community’s case all the way to the Supreme Court, and a young female journalist who was caught in the radioactive crossfire. (USA, 2023, 76 min., color, Dir. Heidi Hutner)
RADIOACTIVE features activist and actor Jane Fonda – whose film, China Syndrome, (a fictional account of a nuclear meltdown), opened 12 days before the real disaster in Pennsylvania, and breaks the story of a radical new health study (in process now) that may finally expose the truth of the meltdown. For over forty years, the nuclear industry has done all in their power to cover up their criminal actions, claiming, as they always do, “No one was harmed and nothing significant happened.”
In this thrilling feminist documentary, indomitable women fight back against the nuclear industry Goliath to expose one of the worst cover-ups in U.S. history.

Susan Hillary (Shapiro) is a filmmaker and environmental attorney in Rockland County, focusing on water protection. Shortly after 9/11 she along with others formed IPSEC and worked to close down Indian Point, which was successfully shuttered a few years ago. She participated in Barack Obama’s Presidential Blue Ribbon committee on nuclear waste, was a fellow in EPA’s Reach program, and is currently a board member of the Radiation and Public Health Project which studies radiation impacts on human health. Susan is also a board member of Rivertown Film.
“Radioactive” positively glows in the dark when it focuses its lens on an intrepid group of ordinary American housewives/mothers summoned to their finest hour in confronting the deception and indifference of the establishment, notably the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
In a world where grassroots activism seems to have been hijacked by darker and more sinister forces, Radioactive: The Women of Three Mile Island celebrates the love and fury of insurrectionists like these intrepid souls who speak truth to power without counting the cost except as it impacts the lives and health of their families.
Radioactive won both hearts and tears this weekend at New York’s Dances With Film Festival, where it captured the audience award for Best Film, a testimony to the deep emotional impact it left in its wake. This is a film that should be rated in supernovas, not stars.

O jogo móvel tem vindo a crescer há vários anos. Naturalmente, os melhores casinos online também reagem à tendência e fornecem-lhe várias aplicações ou websites móveis. Nesta página, dedicamo-nos especificamente às últimas e mais populares opções de jogos móveis que são oferecidas no mundo dos casinos em linha. No teste encontrará toda a informação sobre aplicações para dispositivos Android e iOS, assim como websites móveis.
Cada casino móvel Português tem a sua própria forma de "fornecer" aos jogadores slots móveis e clássicos. Alguns dependem de aplicações especiais para smartphones Android, bem como para iPhones ou mesmo iPads. Geralmente, os pequenos programas funcionam nos telemóveis correspondentes, mas também é maravilhoso jogar em movimento com um tablet.
Outras empresas, contudo, juram pelos sites da HMTL5. Este é, por assim dizer, o casino original com quase todo o portfólio em forma comprimida. Ambas as variantes têm vantagens, pelo que no final terá de decidir por si próprio qual a solução que melhor se adapta a si e às suas necessidades. HTML5 é sempre adequado se utilizar um smartphone ou tablet com sistemas que não os mencionados - Windows, por exemplo. Para este software, muito poucos casinos online desenvolveram até agora aplicações especiais. Assim, a coisa mais fácil a fazer é chamar o URL do casino e depois beneficiar da oferta de jogos móveis directamente no browser.
Em princípio, isto deve funcionar sempre sem problemas nos dispositivos actuais. O desempenho na área dos jogos móveis está a melhorar visivelmente, de modo que esta opção de jogo dificilmente é inferior à do casino com navegador no PC de casa. É claro que não se pode jogar apenas gratuitamente em movimento. Os sites HTML5 são, no final, algo como a forma pequena do grande casino. Isto significa que iniciar sessão e jogar para obter ganhos reais é tão fácil na estrada como em casa, no ambiente de trabalho. A única diferença é, evidentemente, a resolução mais pequena, e é aqui que o trigo é separado do joio.
