"Buongiorno, Anne. Buon anno".
"Buongiorno, Valentin. Buon anno anche a te. Novità?"
"Sì. Un nuovo arrivo. Sabato notte. Hai il colloquio già fissato per le undici. Trovi tutti i dettagli in agenda".
Anne Dupont, psicologa del Centro di Prima Accoglienza di Calais, entrò nel suo ufficio, accese il terminale e consultò la sua agenda elettronica.

Lunedì 5 gennaio 2011, ore 11,00. Colloquio con Monsieur Philip Brasser. Cittadino britannico. Età 38. Celibe. Operazione di salvataggio in mare, Canale della Manica, acque internazionali, 3 gennaio u.s. Condizioni fisiche buone. Non parla francese. Attribuzione provvisoria: codice blu.

Bene, pensò Anne. Un rifugiato politico. Iniziare l'anno nuovo con un codice blu era di buon auspicio. Il colloquio era di lì a due ore. Non c'erano altri impegni per la giornata. Completò con calma alcuni referti clinici iniziati la settimana precedente, fece una partita a Tetris, chattò con alcuni amici in Internet. Quando fu il momento, si aggiustò il make-up e si recò in sala colloqui.

Era una stanza non troppo ampia, arredata come un normale studio specialistico ma con qualche accorgimento per mettere gli ospiti a proprio agio: colori pastello, luci soffuse, lettino basso, comoda poltrona. Su quest'ultima, di fronte alla scrivania della dottoressa, era già seduto il signor Brasser.

"Good morning, Mr. Brasser. Prima di tutto, come sta?"
La domanda non era solo formale. L'uomo appariva molto provato. I tanti capelli bianchi, la pelle del viso magro solcata da numerose rughe, le profonde occhiaie dietro le lenti spesse, lo facevano sembrare più vecchio di dieci anni rispetto alla sua età anagrafica. Al posto degli abiti che indossava al momento del suo salvataggio, fradici e inservibili, gli avevano fornito un nuovo completo, che era tuttavia di due numeri più largo e accentuava la gracilità del suo fisico. Gli tremavano le mani.
Quegli scafisti maledetti, pensò Anne.
"Adesso sto meglio, grazie. Certo, suppongo che la notte passata all'addiaccio su quel canotto non abbia migliorato granché la mia cera. Ma ho fatto una buona dormita, qui da voi, e la vostra cucina è ottima". La sua voce era ferma, con una sfumatura d'ironia. "Solamente, non sono riuscito a procurarmi neppure una sigaretta, dottoressa..."
"Dupont. Ma può chiamarmi Anne. Temo che non ne troverà neppure in futuro. Nell'Unione non se ne producono più. Fino a qualche tempo fa, le importavamo dal suo paese".
"Oh, già, ora ricordo. Le esportazioni cessarono sei anni fa. Troppo pochi fumatori, qui da voi. Non c'era abbastanza profitto. Lo so perché all'epoca lavoravo in un'agenzia di rating".
"Lei è analista finanziario?"
Il signor Brasser rise. "No. Laureato in agraria. Da Troody's ero operatore al call center. Ogni grande compagnia ha il suo. E' la mansione che ho sempre svolto, durante tutta la mia carriera. Ho lavorato per almeno trenta società diverse, ogni volta per non più di sei mesi. Si imparano tante cose, sa?"
"Non ho dubbi. Ma veniamo al punto. Lei ha chiesto lo status di rifugiato politico. Data la sua provenienza, certamente la sua richiesta sarà accettata. Lei diventerà fra breve, a tutti gli effetti, cittadino dell'Unione delle Repubbliche Socialiste d'Europa. Già adesso, comunque, lei è libero di circolare in tutto il territorio dell'Unione, ed eventualmente anche di tornare da dove è venuto..."
"No grazie! Non ci tengo affatto".
"Dicevo per dire. In genere, qui da noi i rifugiati si integrano abbastanza in fretta. Tuttavia, non si può escludere che, all'inizio, lei si trovi un po' spaesato. Il nostro sistema sociale è molto diverso da quello da cui lei proviene. A sua richiesta, lei può fruire di adeguata assistenza psicologica e culturale, per superare eventuali difficoltà di adattamento. In questa fase iniziale, se vuole, mi consideri pure come suo referente".
"Oh. E quanto dura questa... fase iniziale?"
"Può finire anche subito, se crede. L'unico suo obbligo, se intende rimanere nell'Unione, è di iscriversi nelle liste di collocamento e nelle graduatorie per gli alloggi. Non credo che le sarà difficile trovare un lavoro e una casa. Se lei non ha esigenze particolari, penso che troverà una sistemazione accettabile nel giro di un paio di settimane. Fino ad allora, comunque, può rimanere qui, o spostarsi in una delle altre strutture di prima accoglienza nel territorio dell'Unione".
"Sembra magnifico. Dov'è la fregatura?"
"Ecco. Era proprio ciò che intendevo. Non c'è nessuna fregatura, per quanto lei sia abituato a pensare che debba per forza esserci. Non pretendo che lei mi creda. Presto se ne accorgerà da sé".

Non c'erano straordinari da fare, quel giorno. Alle tredici, Anne spense il computer, salutò i colleghi che arrivavano per il turno pomeridiano e, senza passare dalla mensa, prese l'elio-tram che, serpeggiando silenziosamente lungo la costa, la portò a casa sua in dieci minuti. Era una magnifica giornata di sole. Il mare era inusualmente calmo, in quei giorni. Una fortuna, per Brasser. Aveva evitato il triste destino di tanti boat-people che partivano clandestinamente dalla riva inglese ma non riuscivano a raggiungere i nostri mezzi di soccorso nelle acque internazionali.

Anne abitava da sola. Si preparò un leggero pranzo macrobiotico, poi un caffé d'orzo. Accese la radio; la spense. Si guardò nello specchio del soggiorno. Sorrise. Tutto sommato, si piaceva. Si chiese come sarebbe stato il suo sembiante, alla sua età, se anziché in Europa continentale fosse vissuta in quell'inferno che doveva essere Londra. I profughi le avevano raccontato storie orribili. Inquinamento, degrado. Se andava bene, orari lavorativi di dieci o dodici ore. Altrimenti, la disoccupazione, l'emarginazione e la pazzia. Oppure, per una ristretta minoranza, la ricchezza e il potere, ma a costo di rinunciare a qualsiasi barlume d'umanità. Un'altra forma di follia, in fondo.

Mercoledì 7 gennaio, ore 10,00. Secondo colloquio con Monsieur Brasser.

Quella mattina l'aspetto di Mr. Brasser era molto migliorato. Anne glielo disse.
"Grazie, Dottoressa. Lei è gentile quanto bella".
Anne Dupont ignorò il complimento.
"Se ho chiesto un nuovo colloquio" continuò Brasser, "non è per ottenere assistenza psicologica".
"Davvero? E perché, allora?"
"Ho due domande da porle".
"Le risponderò, se posso. Ma prima, permetta che le faccia io una domanda. Cosa sa, lei, dell'Unione?"
"Poco, in realtà. So che dapprima ci fu la Rivoluzione d'Ottobre, in Russia, nel 1917. Poi, tra il '18 e il '20, il capitalismo fu abbattuto in Germania, in Ungheria e in Italia. In rapida successione, tutte le colonie europee in Asia e in Africa conquistarono l'indipendenza. L'India nel 1925, la Cina nel '27, e così via. Poco dopo fu la volta dell'Algeria e del Marocco, e a quel punto la rivoluzione scoppiò anche in Francia e in Spagna. Alla fine degli anni '30, tutta l'Europa continentale era socialista.
Frattanto, il crollo di Wall Street nel 1929 aveva gettato l'America nella crisi più nera. Le elezioni presidenziali del 1940 furono vinte da Charles Lindbergh, un fanatico antisemita che instaurò negli U.S.A. una dittatura razzista, appoggiata dal grande capitale. Presto quel regime si circondò di una serie di stati-satellite che coprivano tutta l'America del Sud e del Nord.
Negli anni '80, quelle dittature iniziarono ad implodere, dapprima in America Latina e poi in Canada. Quando nel 1989 cadde il Muro di Tijuana, finalmente il capitalismo crollò negli stessi Stati Uniti. Da allora, secondo la nostra propaganda, il Regno Unito di Gran Bretagna è rimasto l'ultimo baluardo del libero mercato e della civiltà, contro la barbarie socialista che ha travolto tutto il resto del globo. Questo è quanto".
"Bene - disse la dottoressa - a parte la faccenda del baluardo, il quadro storico è corretto. Non le sarà stato facile ricostruirlo..."
"No, infatti. Da noi, formalmente, la cultura è libera, e ognuno può leggere ciò che vuole. Si possono prendere in prestito, nelle poche biblioteche rimaste, anche testi di Marx o di Lenin, e persino di Fabio Volo. Non è vietato. Di fatto, però, ci sono materie che non conviene approfondire troppo. Se si viene a sapere che lei fa certe letture e che ha determinate idee (e si viene a sapere sempre), non speri di trovare lavoro tanto facilmente. Io me la sono cavata con i call center, solo perché le mie origini non sono troppo umili. Quando avevo vent'anni, i miei riuscirono persino a mandarmi all'università. Certo, oggi non potrei più frequentarla. Da allora le rette sono decuplicate."
"Ah, lei ha letto Fabio Volo? Complimenti. Da noi, molti lo considerano un autore troppo difficile".
"Sì, è molto rigoroso e denso, ma se si ha tempo da dedicargli, è un pensatore affascinante. Le consiglio la Critica del tempo unidimensionale, se non l'ha ancora letta. A me ha aperto la mente. In realtà, uno dei motivi per cui mi sono deciso ad espatriare è che anche studiare per conto proprio da noi è diventato impossibile. Troppo costoso, da quando il dizionario è stato privatizzato".
"Il dizionario?"
"Sì. Tutti i sostantivi che iniziano per vocale appartengono alla Mircosoft. Quelli che iniziano per consonante sono del gruppo Murdogh. Gli avverbi sono di Merdaset, e così via. Per leggere o per usare comunque le parole bisogna pagare il noleggio ai legittimi proprietari. Quando lei scrive una e-mail, oppure quando chatta o quando telefona, un sistema di contatori automatici calcola la cifra e l'addebita sul suo conto. Ottimo sistema, fra l'altro, per controllare i contenuti della comunicazione. Io, per esempio, ho fatto quindici giorni di carcere per uso illecito di marchio registrato, la volta che in una mia mail ho scritto che la Cocca Colla mi faceva schifo".
"Senta, Mr. Brasser. Quali sono i suoi progetti? Cosa intende fare, ora che è venuto qui da noi?"
"Primo, togliermi una curiosità che mi ha tormentato a lungo. Ed è la prima delle due domande che volevo farle, si ricorda?"
La dottoressa Dupont sbuffò. "Va bene. Spari".
"La domanda è: perché non ci avete invaso? Come avete potuto lasciarci a mollo in quella fogna?"
Anne si appoggiò sullo schienale della sedia. "Beh, alcuni partiti in seno all'Internazionale erano per dichiarare guerra. Ma infine prevalse l'idea che il socialismo non può essere imposto con i carri armati. Se ci avessero attaccato, ci saremmo difesi. Per fortuna non accadde. Oggi, poi, molti sostengono che una pluralità di sistemi sociali diversi non è necessariamente un male. In India, in Giappone e in Sud America, dove la transizione al comunismo è molto avanzata, stanno già smantellando le strutture dello Stato, per sostituirle con vari tipi di organizzazione non statuale. In Europa e in Africa ci troviamo ancora nella fase socialista, in vari stadi di sviluppo a seconda dei territori. Forse è bene che ci siano delle zone dove ancora vige il capitalismo."
"Sarà un bene per voi, che ci osservate dall'esterno come se fossimo allo zoo! Ma per noi che siamo in gabbia è un altro discorso".
"Lei ora non è più in gabbia. Comunque, mi sembra che il suo atteggiamento nei confronti del suo paese d'origine sia un po' troppo negativo, non crede?"
"Mi dica lei cosa ci vede di bello, in quel letamaio", ribatté Brasser.
"Beh, che so... Avete una scena musicale molto vivace. Un sacco di gruppi pop, rock, punk, post-punk... Wim Wenders ci ha fatto anche un film. Poi, comunque, il vostro sistema ha ancora una base di consenso popolare".
"Si riferisce a West End London Social Club, vero? Quel film mi dà la nausea! Le televisioni del regime lo replicano senza tregua. L'unico film d'autore trasmesso in prima serata, e senza interruzioni pubblicitarie."
"Ecco, ad esempio - lo interruppe la dottoressa - Perché lei parla di televisioni di regime? Da voi ci sono sei o sette canali, se non sbaglio, tutti privati e in concorrenza fra loro..."
"... e trasmettono tutti le stesse schifezze. Non si distinguono l'uno dall'altro. Anne, lei non ha capito: da noi l'economia è allo sfascio, la società è in piena decadenza, la cultura è morta e sepolta. L'unica attività che va a gonfie vele è la manipolazione del consenso per mezzo dei mass-media. Quella è l'unica industria che non conosce crisi!"
"Non volevo farla arrabbiare. Si calmi. Lei ora è al sicuro. Andrà tutto bene. Respiri profondamente, e mi faccia la seconda domanda che voleva pormi".
"Mi scusi. La domanda è questa. Lei è libera stasera? Ho letto sul giornale che in un cinema d'essai a Dunkerque proiettano L'Atalante di Jean Vigo. E' una vita che desidero vedere quel film, e mi chiedevo se... lei volesse venire con me a vederlo, ecco."

          'We have no experience in stopping a nuclear war.' - Sidney Drell (no replies)        
'..My greatest concern is the lack of public awareness about this existential threat, the absence of a vigorous public debate about the nuclear-war plans of Russia and the United States, the silent consent to the roughly fifteen thousand nuclear weapons in the world. These machines have been carefully and ingeniously designed to kill us. Complacency increases the odds that, some day, they will. The “Titanic Effect” is a term used by software designers to explain how things can quietly go wrong in a complex technological system: the safer you assume the system to be, the more dangerous it is becoming.'

'The harsh rhetoric on both sides increases the danger of miscalculations and mistakes, as do other factors. Close encounters between the military aircraft of the United States and Russia have become routine, creating the potential for an unintended conflict. Many of the nuclear-weapon systems on both sides are aging and obsolete. The personnel who operate those systems often suffer from poor morale and poor training. None of their senior officers has firsthand experience making decisions during an actual nuclear crisis. And today’s command-and-control systems must contend with threats that barely existed during the Cold War: malware, spyware, worms, bugs, viruses, corrupted firmware, logic bombs, Trojan horses, and all the other modern tools of cyber warfare. The greatest danger is posed not by any technological innovation but by a dilemma that has haunted nuclear strategy since the first detonation of an atomic bomb: How do you prevent a nuclear attack while preserving the ability to launch one?

..

..the Cuban Missile Crisis, when a series of misperceptions, miscalculations, and command-and-control problems almost started an accidental nuclear war—despite the determination of both John F. Kennedy and Nikita Khrushchev to avoid one. In perhaps the most dangerous incident, the captain of a Soviet submarine mistakenly believed that his vessel was under attack by U.S. warships and ordered the firing of a torpedo armed with a nuclear warhead. His order was blocked by a fellow officer. Had the torpedo been fired, the United States would have retaliated with nuclear weapons. At the height of the crisis, while leaving the White House on a beautiful fall evening, McNamara had a strong feeling of dread—and for good reason: “I feared I might never live to see another Saturday night.”

..

The personnel who command, operate, and maintain the Minuteman III have also become grounds for concern. In 2013, the two-star general in charge of the entire Minuteman force was removed from duty after going on a drunken bender during a visit to Russia, behaving inappropriately with young Russian women, asking repeatedly if he could sing with a Beatles cover band at a Mexican restaurant in Moscow, and insulting his military hosts. The following year, almost a hundred Minuteman launch officers were disciplined for cheating on their proficiency exams. In 2015, three launch officers at Malmstrom Air Force Base, in Montana, were dismissed for using illegal drugs, including ecstasy, cocaine, and amphetamines. That same year, a launch officer at Minot Air Force Base, in North Dakota, was sentenced to twenty-five years in prison for heading a violent street gang, distributing drugs, sexually assaulting a girl under the age of sixteen, and using psilocybin, a powerful hallucinogen. As the job title implies, launch officers are entrusted with the keys for launching intercontinental ballistic missiles.

..

..A recent memoir, “Uncommon Cause,” written by General George Lee Butler, reveals that the Pentagon was not telling the truth. Butler was the head of the U.S. Strategic Command, responsible for all of America’s nuclear weapons, during the Administration of President George H. W. Bush.

According to Butler and Franklin Miller, a former director of strategic-forces policy at the Pentagon, launch-on-warning was an essential part of the Single Integrated Operational Plan (siop), the nation’s nuclear-war plan. Land-based missiles like the Minuteman III were aimed at some of the most important targets in the Soviet Union, including its anti-aircraft sites. If the Minuteman missiles were destroyed before liftoff, the siop would go awry, and American bombers might be shot down before reaching their targets. In order to prevail in a nuclear war, the siop had become dependent on getting Minuteman missiles off the ground immediately. Butler’s immersion in the details of the nuclear command-and-control system left him dismayed. “With the possible exception of the Soviet nuclear war plan, [the siop] was the single most absurd and irresponsible document I had ever reviewed in my life,” Butler concluded. “We escaped the Cold War without a nuclear holocaust by some combination of skill, luck, and divine intervention, and I suspect the latter in greatest proportion.” The siop called for the destruction of twelve thousand targets within the Soviet Union. Moscow would be struck by four hundred nuclear weapons; Kiev, the capital of the Ukraine, by about forty.

After the end of the Cold War, a Russian surprise attack became extremely unlikely. Nevertheless, hundreds of Minuteman III missiles remained on alert. The Cold War strategy endured because, in theory, it deterred a Russian attack on the missiles. McNamara called the policy “insane,” arguing that “there’s no military requirement for it.” George W. Bush, while running for President in 2000, criticized launch-on-warning, citing the “unacceptable risks of accidental or unauthorized launch.” Barack Obama, while running for President in 2008, promised to take Minuteman missiles off alert, warning that policies like launch-on-warning “increase the risk of catastrophic accidents or miscalculation.” Twenty scientists who have won the Nobel Prize, as well as the Union of Concerned Scientists, have expressed strong opposition to retaining a launch-on-warning capability. It has also been opposed by former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, former Secretary of State George Shultz, and former Senator Sam Nunn. And yet the Minuteman III missiles still sit in their silos today, armed with warheads, ready to go.

William J. Perry, who served as Secretary of Defense during the Clinton Administration, not only opposes keeping Minuteman III missiles on alert but advocates getting rid of them entirely. “These missiles are some of the most dangerous weapons in the world,” Perry wrote in the Times, this September. For many reasons, he thinks the risk of a nuclear catastrophe is greater today than it was during the Cold War. While serving as an Under-Secretary of Defense in 1980, Perry also received a late-night call about an impending Soviet attack, a false alarm that still haunts him. “A catastrophic nuclear war could have started by accident.”

Bruce Blair, a former Minuteman launch officer, heads the anti-nuclear group Global Zero, teaches at Princeton University, and campaigns against a launch-on-warning policy. Blair has described the stresses that the warning of a Russian attack would put on America’s command-and-control system. American early-warning satellites would detect Russian missiles within three minutes of their launch. Officers at norad would confer for an additional three minutes, checking sensors to decide if an attack was actually occurring. The Integrated Tactical Warning/Attack System collects data from at least two independent information sources, relying on different physical principles, such as ground-based radar and satellite-based infrared sensors. If the norad officials thought that the warning was legitimate, the President of the United States would be contacted. He or she would remove the Black Book from a briefcase carried by a military aide. The Black Book describes nuclear retaliatory options, presented in cartoon-like illustrations that can be quickly understood.

..

Although the Air Force publicly dismissed the threat of a cyberattack on the nuclear command-and-control system, the incident raised alarm within the Pentagon about the system’s vulnerability. A malfunction that occurred by accident might also be caused deliberately. Those concerns were reinforced by a Defense Science Board report in January, 2013. It found that the Pentagon’s computer networks had been “built on inherently insecure architectures that are composed of, and increasingly using, foreign parts.” Red teams employed by the board were able to disrupt Pentagon systems with “relative ease,” using tools available on the Internet. “The complexity of modern software and hardware makes it difficult, if not impossible, to develop components without flaws or to detect malicious insertions,” the report concluded.

In a recent paper for the Royal United Services Institute for Defence and Security Studies, Andrew Futter, an associate professor at the University of Leicester, suggested that a nuclear command-and-control system might be hacked to gather intelligence about the system, to shut down the system, to spoof it, mislead it, or cause it to take some sort of action—like launching a missile. And, he wrote, there are a variety of ways it might be done.

..

Strict precautions have been taken to thwart a cyberattack on the U.S. nuclear command-and-control system. Every line of nuclear code has been scrutinized for errors and bugs. The system is “air-gapped,” meaning that its networks are closed: someone can’t just go onto the Internet and tap into a computer at a Minuteman III control center. At least, that’s the theory. Russia, China, and North Korea have sophisticated cyber-warfare programs and techniques. General James Cartwright—the former head of the U.S. Strategic Command who recently pleaded guilty to leaking information about Stuxnet—thinks that it’s reasonable to believe the system has already been penetrated. “You’ve either been hacked, and you’re not admitting it, or you’re being hacked and don’t know it,” Cartwright said last year.

If communications between Minuteman control centers and their missiles are interrupted, the missiles can still be launched by ultra-high-frequency radio signals transmitted by special military aircraft. The ability to launch missiles by radio serves as a backup to the control centers—and also creates an entry point into the network that could be exploited in a cyberattack. The messages sent within the nuclear command-and-control system are highly encrypted. Launch codes are split in two, and no single person is allowed to know both parts. But the complete code is stored in computers—where it could be obtained or corrupted by an insider.

Some of America’s most secret secrets were recently hacked and stolen by a couple of private contractors working inside the N.S.A., Edward Snowden and Harold T. Martin III, both employees of Booz Allen Hamilton. The N.S.A. is responsible for generating and encrypting the nuclear launch codes. And the security of the nuclear command-and-control system is being assured not only by government officials but also by the employees of private firms, including software engineers who work for Boeing, Amazon, and Microsoft.

Lord Des Browne, a former U.K. Minister of Defense, is concerned that even ballistic-missile submarines may be compromised by malware. Browne is now the vice-chairman of the Nuclear Threat Initiative, a nonprofit seeking to reduce the danger posed by weapons of mass destruction, where he heads a task force examining the risk of cyberattacks on nuclear command-and-control systems. Browne thinks that the cyber threat is being cavalierly dismissed by many in power. The Royal Navy’s decision to save money by using Windows for Submarines, a version of Windows XP, as the operating system for its ballistic-missile subs seems especially shortsighted. Windows XP was discontinued six years ago, and Microsoft warned that any computer running it after April, 2014, “should not be considered protected as there will be no security updates.” Each of the U.K. subs has eight missiles carrying a total of forty nuclear weapons. “It is shocking to think that my home computer is probably running a newer version of Windows than the U.K.’s military submarines,” Brown said.In 2013, General C. Robert Kehler, the head of the U.S. Strategic Command, testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee about the risk of cyberattacks on the nuclear command-and-control system. He expressed confidence that the U.S. system was secure. When Senator Bill Nelson asked if somebody could hack into the Russian or Chinese systems and launch a ballistic missile carrying a nuclear warhead, Kehler replied, “Senator, I don’t know . . . I do not know.”

After the debacle of the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Soviet Union became much more reluctant to provoke a nuclear confrontation with the United States. Its politburo was a committee of conservative old men. Russia’s leadership is quite different today. The current mix of nationalism, xenophobia, and vehement anti-Americanism in Moscow is a far cry from the more staid and secular ideology guiding the Soviet Union in the nineteen-eighties. During the past few years, threats about the use of nuclear weapons have become commonplace in Moscow. Dmitry Kiselyov, a popular newscaster and the Kremlin’s leading propagandist, reminded viewers in 2014 that Russia is “the only country in the world capable of turning the U.S.A. into radioactive dust.” The Kremlin has acknowledged the development of a nuclear torpedo that can travel more than six thousand miles underwater before devastating a coastal city. It has also boasted about a fearsome new missile design. Nicknamed “Satan 2” and deployed with up to sixteen nuclear warheads, the missile will be “capable of wiping out parts of the earth the size of Texas or France,” an official news agency claimed.

..

Russia’s greatest strategic vulnerability is the lack of a sophisticated and effective early-warning system. The Soviet Union had almost a dozen satellites in orbit that could detect a large-scale American attack. The system began to deteriorate in 1996, when an early-warning satellite had to be retired. Others soon fell out of orbit, and Russia’s last functional early-warning satellite went out of service two years ago. Until a new network of satellites can be placed in orbit, the country must depend on ground-based radar units. Unlike the United States, Russia no longer has two separate means of validating an attack warning. At best, the radar units can spot warheads only minutes before they land. Pavel Podvig, a senior fellow at the U.N. Institute for Disarmament Research, believes that Russia does not have a launch-on-warning policy—because its early-warning system is so limited.

For the past nine years, I’ve been immersed in the minutiae of nuclear command and control, trying to understand the actual level of risk. Of all the people whom I’ve met in the nuclear realm, Sidney Drell was one of the most brilliant and impressive. Drell died this week, at the age of ninety. A theoretical physicist with expertise in quantum field theory and quantum chromodynamics, he was for many years the deputy director of the Stanford Linear Accelerator and received the National Medal of Science from Obama, in 2013. Drell was one of the founding members of jason—a group of civilian scientists that advises the government on important technological matters—and for fifty-six years possessed a Q clearance, granting him access to the highest level of classified information. Drell participated in top-secret discussions about nuclear strategy for decades, headed a panel that investigated nuclear-weapon safety for the U.S. Congress in 1990, and worked on technical issues for jason until the end of his life. A few months ago, when I asked for his opinion about launch-on-warning, Drell said, “It’s insane, the worst thing I can think of. You can’t have a worse idea.”

Drell was an undergraduate at Princeton University when Hiroshima and Nagasaki were destroyed. Given all the close calls and mistakes in the seventy-one years since then, he considered it a miracle that no other cities have been destroyed by a nuclear weapon—“it is so far beyond my normal optimism.” The prospect of a new cold war—and the return of military strategies that advocate using nuclear weapons on the battlefield—deeply unnerved him. Once the first nuclear weapon detonates, nothing might prevent the conflict from spiralling out of control. “We have no experience in stopping a nuclear war,” he said.

..

Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin confront a stark choice: begin another nuclear-arms race or reduce the threat of nuclear war. Trump now has a unique opportunity to pursue the latter, despite the bluster and posturing on both sides. His admiration for Putin, regardless of its merits, could provide the basis for meaningful discussions about how to minimize nuclear risks. Last year, General James Mattis, the former Marine chosen by Trump to serve as Secretary of Defense, called for a fundamental reappraisal of American nuclear strategy and questioned the need for land-based missiles. During Senate testimony, Mattis suggested that getting rid of such missiles would “reduce the false-alarm danger.” Contrary to expectations, Republican Presidents have proved much more successful than their Democratic counterparts at nuclear disarmament. President George H. W. Bush cut the size of the American arsenal in half, as did his son, President George W. Bush. And President Ronald Reagan came close to negotiating a treaty with the Soviet Union that would have completely abolished nuclear weapons.

Every technology embodies the values of the age in which it was created. When the atomic bomb was being developed in the mid-nineteen-forties, the destruction of cities and the deliberate targeting of civilians was just another military tactic. It was championed as a means to victory. The Geneva Conventions later classified those practices as war crimes—and yet nuclear weapons have no other real use. They threaten and endanger noncombatants for the sake of deterrence. Conventional weapons can now be employed to destroy every kind of military target, and twenty-first-century warfare puts an emphasis on precision strikes, cyberweapons, and minimizing civilian casualties. As a technology, nuclear weapons have become obsolete. What worries me most isn’t the possibility of a cyberattack, a technical glitch, or a misunderstanding starting a nuclear war sometime next week. My greatest concern is the lack of public awareness about this existential threat, the absence of a vigorous public debate about the nuclear-war plans of Russia and the United States, the silent consent to the roughly fifteen thousand nuclear weapons in the world. These machines have been carefully and ingeniously designed to kill us. Complacency increases the odds that, some day, they will. The “Titanic Effect” is a term used by software designers to explain how things can quietly go wrong in a complex technological system: the safer you assume the system to be, the more dangerous it is becoming.'

The International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons

          '..another Cold War that may last even longer than the war with world communism.' (no replies)        
'..until Muslim scholars find a Koran key to the free world and lead their followers to an entrance.'

'Economists pondering about human action distinguish between four types of individual incomes; the Koran permits only two, which explains much poverty in the Muslim world. Economists speak of labor income which flows from services rendered either in self-employment or working for an employer; the Koran smiles upon this basic kind of income. Economists also discern interest income which, reflecting human frailty and mortality, flows from the differences between man’s valuation of present economic goods and future goods; the Koran condemns “riba”, that is, interest income, and threatens all creditors who may be tempted to demand “riba” with “the fire prepared for unbelievers.” Economists also like to wax eloquent about entrepreneurial income, commonly called profits, which may be earned through correct anticipation of economic changes; failure to anticipate changes correctly may inflict entrepreneurial losses. The Koran simply prohibits economic activity that involves uncertainty, risk, or speculation and may earn “ghara.” The prohibition obviously discourages and hampers economic changes, adjustments, modernizations, and improvements that are uncertain and risky.

..

Muslim clerics are the tutors and preceptors not only of Islamic theology but also of social and economic ideology. Surely, they may not descend to the level of envy but may fly into anger and passion about the sinful behavior of all non-believers, that is, Christians and Jews, who grow rich in market economies, engaging in uncertain, risky, and speculative economic activity and prospering on riba and ghara. For some clerics the United States is the “Great Satan” and Israel his little offspring. It cannot be surprising that faithful followers abhor, fear, and hate the Great Satan and wish him evil. When a few Muslim fanatics flew into the World Trade Center in New York, killing more than 2,900 men and women, and another hijacked plane hit the Pentagon, killing 189 employees, jubilant masses thronged streets across the Muslim world, celebrating and rejoicing about the destruction and massacre.

..Today, the United States is in the early stages of a long struggle with radical Islamism that has been waging war against this country for some thirty years. Radical Islamic states have been breeding, sheltering, and financing the terrorist armies and radical clerics are invoking divine favor upon them.

The Western world, and especially the United States, is facing the prospect of a long and bitter war with a fanatical enemy. It is a desperate enemy because powerful forces of change are eroding its very ideological foundation. Modern communication technology has opened the windows of the world and is allowing people everywhere to observe Western mores and living conditions. A network of communication satellites, for instance, is continuously receiving, amplifying, and rebroadcasting signals to earth. Western ideas are reaching the minds of people everywhere and changing social, economic, political, and educational institutions. It cannot be surprising that Muslim autocracies like to keep the windows closed by monopolizing and disallowing access to such technology.

It is doubtful that the U.S. military will crush and completely render inactive a desperate enemy consisting of an organized guerilla force of Allah-fearing men and women. A small army of suicidal fanatics, a diminutive percentage of one billion and three hundred million Muslims in 206 countries, may wear away the patience and resolve of the American public and its political and military commanders. Such a possibility does not in any way intimate a victory and sway of Muslim fanatics over the forces of the West. Its paramount strength does not rest on brute military might but on its free and open way of life, its private property order and individual enterprise system. Its windows are wide open and its busy subjects are at work all over the world, simple ambassadors or even missionaries of its order. Even if the United States should ever stumble and lose its way, the windows are wide open and the bright light of individual freedom and the private property order would remain visible in many other parts of the West. It is unlikely that it can ever be extinguished.

The U.S. military is not going to conquer many Muslim countries, but individual freedom and the private property order may in time..

..

We shall know the future only when it comes. But our thoughts like to live in the future, and what they see is another Cold War that may last even longer than the war with world communism. They see the Muslim world in a crisis which causes a few revolutionaries to strike at Americans. Insurgents may continue to lash out until Muslim scholars find a Koran key to the free world and lead their followers to an entrance.'

Biologists catch and tag big sawfish in Florida waters

Food for Thought

Once a common top predator throughout coastal seas around the globe, sawfish have become remarkably rare. Indeed, today most populations are threatened with extinction. So spotting even one of these animals is reason to rejoice, notes Beau Yeiser of Mote Marine Laboratory in southern Florida. And this week, "we are nothing but giddy," he reports.

He and colleague Tonya Wiley just returned from a 2-day sawfish-scouting expedition during which they tagged a 7-foot male on Oct. 16. At that size, the strapping youth may be 5 to 7 years old, Yeiser says. He cautions, however, that estimating age is challenging "as we try and piece together the life history of this species. We don't even know its size at maturity yet."

These animals—essentially flattened sharks with wings—are members of the ray family. Only one species of this fish remains in U.S. waters, mostly off of Florida. Over the first half of the 20th century, this smalltooth sawfish (Pristis pectinata) was fished to the brink of extinction—largely by accident.

Although many cultures eat sawfish—the animals' fins are especially prized in Asia as the featured ingredient in a pricey soup—most of the animals in U.S. waters were landed and destroyed as bycatch, that is, nuisance species hauled in by commercial fishing fleets. The dire status of sawfish globally won these animals protection, last month, under a treaty banning international trade in endangered species (see Hammered Saws).

So far this year, Yeiser and Wiley have caught just 14 sawfish, most of them less than 4 feet long. Those would still be little kids, considering that these fish are almost a yard long at birth. Then again, the pair had expected only small ones because they've mainly been cruising coastal shallows this year in hopes of running into newborns and youngsters.

The scientists attach a numbered identification tag to the dorsal fin of every sawfish they catch—and then release the animal.

But last week's catch was so big that it qualified for a second identifier: a pop-up archival tag, or PAT. These recording devices are so heavy that they're reserved for large sawfish—at least 7-footers. To date, only some dozen of these animals have received PATs. Costing at least $4,000 each, these data-storage systems collect information every minute, for months, on the depth at which its host is swimming, the water temperature, and light levels. The latter information gets plugged into a computer program that roughly gauges the animal's geographic coordinates at any moment.

Researchers program a PAT to pop off the fish on a particular date. Once it floats to the surface, it sends its stored information in spurts, twice a day, to a satellite. That orbiting relay station then shoots those data back to Earth and the scientists' email addresses.

Last week's sawfish encounter took place in a southern Florida national wildlife refuge, in very shallow water. Investigated as a possible nursery, Yeiser says "I was expecting any sawfish that I might catch to be perhaps 4 to 5 feet in length." Instead, he found a much older juvenile. "But that's the beauty of this [sawfish] project; you never know what you are going to get when you're scouting a species that has not been studied much!"

Yeiser named the youth that he tagged last week Raloff. Hmmm—I like the sound of that. Its tag is programmed to pop off on March 15. Stay tuned for an update on my namesake's travels.

If all goes well, that is.

A 7- and an 11-foot sawfish each received PATs in May. Although the satellite tags had been programmed to pop off 3 months later, they actually surfaced within just a couple weeks, Yeiser says—and were never recovered.

So, each time biologists deploy the pricey devices, he says, "we just cross our fingers that they won't pop up early—or get lost in the middle of the Gulf."

Don't try this yourself

The sawfish is an endangered species, so federal law forbids its capture—except by researchers who have been granted a waiver. And even they need to release an animal after measuring and tagging it.

It's against the law to even harass the animals. Still, anglers may inadvertently snag one of the toothy marvels. When that happens, this species "should be released by keeping the fish in the water and cutting the line as close to the hook as possible," according to guidelines issued late last year by the National Marine Fisheries Service in St. Petersburg, Fla. "If it can be done safely, untangle the line if it is wrapped around the saw. Do not handle the animal or attempt to remove any hooks on the saw, except for with a long-handled dehooker," NOAA says.

Biologists request that any anglers who sight a sawfish report their encounter to the Mote lab. Its scientists are maintaining a database to help them identify important habitat for these endangered animals.

As interesting as these piscine oddities are, biologists would prefer that the public give the fish a wide berth. The primary reason: Approaching the animals can stress them, chase them from what should be waters safe from predators, or even interfere with their reproduction.

But there's another reason to steer clear, according to Captain Harvey Lee Hamilton, who charters a fishing boat out of Pineland, Fla. "I've caught plenty of sawfish in my life, and I'll tell you: They're dangerous. I'm still scared to death of them." Their saws—which he terms blades—are edged with dozens of razor-sharp "teeth." The muscular animals slash those saws from side to side to kill prey or defend themselves.

Says Hamilton: "Those fish get big, with blades that can go to at least 5 foot." And they slash those blades "so fast," he says, "that they could slice your feet off." Indeed, he told Science News Online: "I'd rather fight a shark than a sawfish."

          ECU ALUMNUS CHRIS BUCHANAN NOW DEPUTY DIRECTOR OF INDIAN HEALTH SERVICES FOR U.S. PUBLIC HEATH SERVICE        
Chris Buchanan

Chris Buchanan, East Central University alumnus and a member of the Commissioned Corps of the United States Public Health Service (USPHS), was recently promoted to the flag-officer rank of Rear Admiral and appointed Deputy Director of Indian Health Services.

Buchanan also recently served six months as acting director.

As a senior ranking officer, flag officers exemplify the core values for which commissioned officers of the U.S. Public Health Service are held in high esteem, according to Dr. Patrick Bohan, ECU Environmental Health Sciences professor and Retired Captain of the USPHS.

“Flag officers provide executive-level leadership within the department and the agencies which they serve,” Bohan said. “Our flag officers also carry the title of Assistant Surgeon General and, as such, we rely on them to support special initiatives and exhibit the highest caliber of public health leadership.”

Buchanan, a native of Konawa, joins fellow ECU alumnus Rear Admiral Kevin D. Meeks as a high-ranking official within the USPHS. Meeks is acting deputy director of field operations for the Indian Health Service, an agency within the Department of Health and Human Services and the principal federal health care advocate and provider of health services for American Indians and Alaska natives.

ECU has provided more environmental health officers to the Commissioned Corps of the U.S. Public Health Service than any other institution in the country, according to Bohan. The Environmental Health Science program at ECU is one of 31 accredited undergraduate programs throughout the United States.

“The Environmental Health Science program provided an interdisciplinary foundation that prepared me for my career in Indian Health Service,” Buchanan said. “Environmental health graduates of the program are problem solvers. We use this type of approach to develop skill sets

that help to constructively review environmental and public health issues and come up with solutions. I have and continue to use these skills in my role as the deputy director of IHS.”

Buchanan credits the late Dr. Mickey Rowe, former chair and professor of the ECU Environmental Health Science Department, with setting the stage for his career.

“Dr. Rowe was a force of nature. He left a lasting impact on me personally and professionally,” said Buchanan. “His expectations were high for all his students and former students. He made it clear upon graduation that you would be representing the ECU Environmental Health Program and your environmental health decisions will have an impact on public health. His expectation was nothing short of being the best both academically and in your profession.”

 As deputy director Buchanan, an enrolled member of the Seminole Nation of Oklahoma, leads and oversees IHS operations to ensure delivery of quality comprehensive health services. He ensures that IHS provides for the full participation of tribes in programs and services and helps to establish and track the goals and metrics through which the IHS U.S.-federal-government-operated, or direct service, health care program improves outcomes.

Buchanan ensures IHS services are integrated across all levels of the agency and engaged with other Operating Divisions of the Department of Health and Human Services and external partners, including states and national organizations.

He previously served in 2016 as the acting area director for the IHS Great Plains Area, with administrative responsibility for 19 service units serving 130,000 people and 17 tribes through seven hospitals, 10 health centers and two urban Indian health programs, overseeing a complex health care program during a period of change. Previously, Buchanan has served as director of the IHS Office of Direct Services and Contracting Tribes.

As an environmental health officer in the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps with more than 20 years of active duty, Buchanan began his IHS career in 1993, serving in various environmental health positions in the Phoenix, Albuquerque and Oklahoma City areas, including serving as the administrative officer for Lawton Indian Hospital and the chief executive officer for Haskell Health Center. In 2010, he was administrative officer of clinical services for the Chickasaw Nation’s Division of Health in Ada.

Along with serving on several national IHS workgroups and being deployed to several natural disaster events, Buchanan has received numerous professional awards, including one for National Council of Chief Executive Officer’s Rookie of the Year. He earned a bachelor of environmental health science degree from ECU and a public health degree in health policy and administration from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.

Buchanan has seen Indian Health Service improve over the years, evolving in a similar manner as the traditional healthcare delivery model to a more value-based healthcare delivery system.

“The IHS sees these changes through the administration of a nationwide health care delivery program that is responsible for providing preventative, curative and community health care for approximately 2.2 American Indians and Alaska natives in hospitals, clinics and other settings throughout the United States,” Buchanan said. “An example of this evolution includes emerging technologies such as telemedicine. By utilizing these healthcare technologies, IHS will continue to improve the populations we serve.”

Telemedicine is the diagnosis and treatment of patients in remote areas using medical information such as x-rays or television pictures, transmitted over long distances, particularly satellite.

          Gurun terpanas dan terbesar didunia        
Tahukah anda gurun panas paling besar di dunia adalah terletak di Afrika Utara, gurun ini mempunyai keluasan 9,400,000 km² (3,630,000 batu persegi) adalah sebuah padang pasir yang diberi nama Gurun Sahara dan dipercayai berusia 2.5 Juta tahun dahulu.

 

Oleh kerana Sahara mempunyai suhu melebihi 45 darjah celcius pada siang hari dan suhu sejuk yang melampau diwaktu malam hanya sebilangan hidupan sahaja yang dapat menghuni gurun ini,Hidupan yang mampu bertahan dengan kepanasan  extream pada siang hari dan kesejukkan melampau pada malam hari akan terus subur di bumi Sahara.


Terdapat kawasan separa-gersang dan sedikit hujan yang diterima sekadar cukup untuk menampung tumbuh-tumbuhan, haiwan dan manusia. Diliputi oleh dataran-dataran kelikir tandus yang digelar reg yang asalnya dari lava gunung berapi lama.

 

Antara Tumbuhan yang boleh bertahan dengan cuaca panas di gurun adalah Kaktus, semak berduri, rumput keras dan akasia bantut yang biasanya mempunyai ciri-ciri seperti berakal panjang yang mampu untuk menyerap air, mempunyai kulit yang tebal, batang yang berlendir dan kebiasannya tidak mempunyai daun tetapi berduri.

 

Bagi haiwan liar yang hidup di sini adalah Rusa Gazella, Unta, Cicak dan juga Ular. Biasanya haiwan ini mempunyai ciri-ciri tentu yang dapat menyesuaikan diri dengan keadaan panas dan sedikit air.

Disini terdapat gunung pasir yang mempunyai ketinggian 3500 meter tetapi keadaan ini tidak kekal apabila gunung yang terbentuk ini akan berubah apabila ianya ditiup oleh angin yang akan membawa batu-batu dan juga pasir dan sekali gus keadaan di permukaan gurun ini sentiasa berubah-ubah.

Walau bagaimanapun biarpun mempunyai iklim yang panas sepanjang tahun, gurun ini tetap dihuni oleh manusia dan antaranya adalah terdiri daripada Kaum/Puak Badwi dan Kafilah yang menjalankan kegiatan menternak bintang dan juga saudagar yang menjual barangan kepada penduduk gurun.

Kini bagi Kaum Badwi, mereka lebih tertumpu di kawasan yang berhampiran dengan sumber air atau Oasis yang mana lebih memudahkan mereka untuk bertani dan juga menternak binatang sekaligus sedikit sebanyak amalan berpindah randah semakin dilupakan oleh kaum ini.

          Local Rabbi Has it in for Barack Obama        
On the heels of one local Rabbi who made what can be misconstrued as an inappropriate comment regarding Barack Obama a few weeks back, another local Rabbi really went to town on the candidate in shul today. In a diatribe that, according to my unofficial polling, many congregants present found completely improper, he went off on Obama in a completely over-the-top fashion. The Rabbi criticized Obama's position Israel, and said he surrounds himself with Sonei Yisrael (haters of Jews) and Sonei Eretz Yisrael (haters of the land of Israel). The Rabbi compared Mr. Obama to Haman, to FDR (that people loved FDR too and didn't realize what a Rasha he would turn out to be), and in what should really just invoke Godwin's Law, he actually compared the man referred* to... Hitler himself (that people dismissed Hitler too as just being all talk).

Now, I don't believe at all that Obama is anti-Israel. I just don't. Aside from these compelling arguments (I, II, III), I just refuse to believe that the candidate has ulterior motives regarding Israel based solely on a whisper campaign regarding false claims about Obama being Muslim - as opposed to on his good record on Israel issues. I had a conversation with a very intelligent and well-read family member who completely believed the forwarded e-mail she received that claimed that Obama is Muslim (false), was sworn into office on a Koran (false), and she even went so far as to call me out as being "naive" for not believing those claims, and for not seeing as clearly as she does that Obama is nothing more than a Trojan horse for terrorists. It was truly painful.

But all things considered, not as painful as a religious leader making such claims from the pulpit in front of a captive shul-going audience. That's just plain wrong.

*UPDATE: Edited to concede a valued commenter's point that it was not a direct comparison between Obama and Hitler, but a reference (though clearly a reference inviting a comparison).
          Getting India’s first space telescope working        
A moment of terror: During the first week of successful operation, there was an initial moment of terror when the engineers checking out Astrosat, India’s first space telescope, thought the spacecraft was unable to point at its target accurately. During the first orbit, there was a difficulty in detecting this Crab Nebula as the satellite happened to pass through the
          I found a spring!        
I finally realized something after doing some more research on my property- I have a spring.

It appears that I have a natural high groundwater spring on the western portion of my property, about 1200' away from where I want to build. This spring occurs naturally and still has groundwater at about 5-6' from where I found an old monitoring well. During the winter months it creates a second small swale that runs for 3-6 months.

Supposedly there was an original hand-dug well on my parcel as shown from an old septic report where the windmill was located. I found a pile of rocks, but not a well. Too much land to just easily find it when you have 48 acres. I thought maybe looking at an old satellite photo might clear it up, but I can't see the windmill.

In California, you cannot legally drill your own well without a C-57 license. I am going to have a professional well drilled, but I am thinking about developing this natural spring some 1200' away from where I want to build for cattle grazing since it should just require a pump down the hole and maybe a bit of backhoe work to clean it out. It is about 40-50' lower in elevation and it eminates from my property as shown from the contours. Might be a valuable resource.

I originally wanted to drill my own well under an 'owner-builder' method but there were court cases that I found online where these wells could never be permitted and even the state was going after those doing this. I only need to drill about 20-30' max to get plenty of water. Even still, the cheapest driller including casing for a 100' well was about $6,000 not including the pump or permit ($235). If you are in California, you are pretty much screwed with this work. The well drillers have cornered the market and you are out of luck for a legal well. I don't see a problem however you drilling other wells on your property once you have one permitted... It would be difficult for both the assessors and environmental health to figure it out.

Limit your brand mentions to two. Anything more will often offend the station and perceived as overly commercial. A taped interview with several brand mentions may never air. A mention in the beginning and a mention in the call to action are acceptable. If at all possible choose a remote location for your SMT instead of a studio. Could mean more $$$, however the segment will look a lot better and appeal more to viewers. A unique remote location will also appeal to news stations and add to your bookings.

This blog does its fair share of whining about daft things on the BBC, especially its website (“constructive criticism.”) There are disturbing current plans to cut back on everything good about the BBC, with a loss of 2,500 jobs. According to last week’s Guardian, the BBC’s high-profile serious journalists, such as Paxman, have been told not to express their criticisms of this sort of stuff on air.

The director-general has been quoted voicing the sort of Dilbert-speak that bodes ill for any organisation, from the perspective of both staff and customers. For example:

….his plan would deliver “a smaller, but fitter, BBC” in the digital age.
The six-year scheme, called Delivering Creative Future…..

Over the past few years, the BBC has expanded from being a public-service broadcaster – worthy enough in itself, to providing an almost unequalled Internet news resource. In the face of a general dumbing-down of television to a level that the average pet tortoise would find intelligible, the BBC still provides some tv and radio of amazing quality .

Well, it seems this all has to stop. The new plan is for more repeats, cuts to the television news, fewer current affairs programmes, fewer non-commercial kids’ programmes, ads on international stuff..

The editors’ blogs sound like it’s all an exciting new opportunity. Well, wouldn’t you, if you might be facing redundancy and criticism wouldn’t keep you out of that media dole queue?

…standing still is not an option because our audiences are changing and we must change with them….

Changing? More than normal changes then? In what ways? Granted most people have cable or satellite. I admit to watching minimal terrestrial tv, but that’s not because it’s over my head. It’s because most of it is hopelessly poor:

  • Soaps that should be poured down the plughole.
  • Reality shows that would make you want to Columbine the whole human race, if they actually bore any relationship to “reality”
  • Home / clothes / lifestyle makeovers, all aimed at a general transformation of the UK into a giant open-plan Stepford.
  • Programmes about raising children that make B.F. Skinner look laissez-faire
  • Plastic surgery programmes that actually promote it
  • Programmes about celebs and their weight problems
  • 100 greatest/worst adverts for car wax, or similar. With slightly recognisable talking heads discussing the choices
  • “Programmes” with a chirpy talking head and a screen puzzle designed to keep the drunk or mentally ill phoning in to “answer” trick questions at £300 a nanosecond

Basically, tv that would make the choice between watching it and gnawing off your own arm quite a difficult decision.

Is it the changing audience that’s driving this? If the audience is changing to be made up of the bedbound with broken remote controls, then maybe.

The BBC, although not blameless, is the least offender in this crap. It still represents so much of what is worthwhile in British culture. Cuts in its budget, cuts in its real staff….

Argh. That was the crunch of tooth on right arm flesh.

Digital Satellite TV

Digital satellite TV is part of national regulations starting with February 17, 2009. This means that all the television stations in the US have to use the digital format exclusively to broadcast their programs. Digital satellite TV meant the beginning of the end for analog transmission systems. Satellite dish users will not be too affected by the passage to digital broadcasting, but not the same thing can be said about those who rely only on the TV antenna for signal reception. Under such circumstances, one can either subscribe to digital satellite TV or integrate a converter box to decode the digital signal into analog format.

There may be a drop in the prices for digital satellite TV packages, yet, high definition (HD) programming stays trapped in the area of pretty expensive options both to make and broadcast, since the monthly fees closely mirror the potential investment costs. The majority of TV stations will not allocate special budgets to invest only in high definition transmission, and won't go for such a drastic modernization. In other words, digital satellite TV clients will not see any changes after 2009, because their providers are already operating in the mode required; on the other hand, it is for cable companies to do massive changes to the network as part of the renovation of the analog service.

The great part about digital satellite TV is the quality of the service obvious both in the video and the audio broadcast. Furthermore, the only way to benefit from high definition systems is to incorporate digital technology; so far the downsides of the digital mode have not become obvious to satellite dish users, as all they only need some quality equipment that is generally offered by the service provider. Then, digital satellite TV options can be extended to very large houses, as the system is compatible with up to eight rooms; however, the costs will be a match to such a TV variant.

Though many comparisons, tips and suggestions are present online, people very rarely understand the complexity of the digital satellite TV option as compared to cable systems. Incidents sometimes reveal the bad bits, while upgrades prove that there is a better way than the one you've been sticking to. This implies that it is pretty difficult to identify the flaws of a system which you have no idea about since despite the great TV service quality problems may appear, even if in a limited or reduced form without consequences for large numbers of users.

          Thing #7: Cool Google Tools        

Google is the most famous search engine on the web these days, with the very name becoming a verb in our language. Here's Wikipedia's entry on this phenomenon:


The verb to google (also spelled to Google) refers to using the Google search engine to obtain information on the Web. For example, "Mary googled for recipes." A neologism arising from the popularity and dominance[1] of the eponymous search engine, the American Dialect Society chose it as the "most useful word of 2002." [2] It was officially added to the Oxford English Dictionary on June 15, 2006,[3] and to the 11th edition of the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary in July 2006.[4] The first recorded usage of google used as a verb was on July 8, 1998, by Larry Page himself, who wrote on a mailing list: "Have fun and keep googling!"[5]


Although we generally equate Google with web searching, that's not what this "thing" is about. Google also has a variety of free web tools that can be particularly useful in education. Some of these are:


Google Alerts - will e-mail the news to you as it happens. Just enter a search term (educational term, news topic, person, event, sports team, etc.) that you would like to keep tabs on. Whenever that topic appears in a news item or on the web, Google Alerts will send you an e-mail.


Google Calendar - lets you organize your schedule and share it with family, friends, teachers, students...


iGoogle - gives you a customizable home page where you can add links, news feeds, gadgets, etc. (Be sure and look at the gadgets - these are really fun!). Students can use iGoogle as their home page. They can have tabs for separate subjects or projects. They can set up gadgets to deliver information on topics, etc...


Picasa Web Albums - similar to Flickr; Google's version of photo sharing.


Google Scholar - Google Scholar provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, abstracts and articles, from academic publishers, professional societies, pre-print repositories, universities and other scholarly organizations.


Google Advanced Search – Allows you to search by file format. In other words, if you want a PowerPoint already created about a particular topic, you choose the PowerPoint (.ppt) and search for your topic.


Google Earth - Google Earth combines the power of Google Search with satellite imagery, maps, terrain and 3D buildings to put the world's geographic information at your fingertips. (SBISD employees, Google Earth is loaded on the Teacher roll-out laptops and maybe other computers, double check before you download).

and Google Docs - Look at all the new things you can do with plain ol' text, spreadsheet and presentation items!

And more! From the Google Search page, click on the "more" pull-down at the top middle of the screen. Then click on "even more" at the bottom of the pull-down list.

Discovery Resources:

Discovery Exercise


After looking at each of Google tools, choose two of them to explore further. Try setting up an alert, calendar, notebook, or iGoogle page and using it. If sharing is an option for the tools you choose, make them public.


Blog about your experience with both tools and include a link (if you make it public) to your creation. Be sure and include possible educational uses.

Arthur C. Clarke: 2005
Sir Arthur C Clarke passed away today from respiratory complications, in his adopted homeland of Sri Lanka. Sir Arthur was perhaps best known as an author, but he also invented the idea of communications satellites (1945), which he never patented. For the occasion of his ninetieth birthday, Sir Arthur made a video address on December 5, 2007.

Sir Arthur Clarke has a very extensive bibliography, but is probably best known for his book 2001: A Space Odyssey, which was made into a movie in 1968 by Stanley Kubrick. He also had a television show, Arthur C. Clarke's Mysterious World, which aired in the 1980's discussing the world's strange occurrences.

Many people believe that after death, a person's essence is privy to all the universe's knowledge. If true, Sir Arthur is very happy! Rest in peace, Sir Arthur.

Anyone wishing to read Sir Arthur C Clarke's books can find his works at your local independent bookstore or on the net from a worldwide indie by searching by author and/or title at Bookfinder or ADDALL.

          Saving Hawaiian cultural sites        
SUBHEAD: Fearing future development of a valley rich with Hawaiian history, community members want preservation.

By Blaze Lovell on 31 July 2017 for Civil Beat  -
(http://www.civilbeat.org/2017/07/the-fight-to-save-ancient-hawaiian-archeological-sites/)

This is a fight to save ancient Hawaiian archeological sites. Fearing future development of a Leeward valley rich with cultural history, some community members are pushing for preservation.

Glen Kila’s family has defended parts of the Waianae Coast from development for generations. The family traces its genealogy to the aboriginal inhabitants of the area.

They consider one of their most sacred sites to have been under threat by foreign developers and mainland owners since the 1980s.

Now, luxury developments in nearby Makaha have spawned a new round of worries that this area in Kea’au Valley, known as Ohikilolo, may face a similar fate if nothing is done to preserve the land.

More than 600 acres of former ranchland in Ohikilolo have been eyed at various times as a possible landfill, golf course and luxury subdivision.

What is so important about this valley?

Drivers passing by the ranchland just off Farrington Highway see just trees and possibly some cows grazing in a field. But beneath the brush hides the densest collection of archeological sites on the island, according to an archeological study conducted in 1992.


Image above:  Detail part of of Moku & Ahupuaa map of leeward Oahu showing ahupuaa areas of Waianae including Keaau and Hikiolo done by  Juan Wilson. Click to enlarge.  From (http://www.islandbreath.org/hawaiinei/M6Oahu/M6OahuRasterFile.png).


The study was originally done for a proposed golf course, and researchers recorded 461 sites in just 60 acres of the valley.

What may look like piles of rocks to some people are actually the remains of a once-vibrant community that existed more than 1,500 years before the time of Kamehameha I.

Kila, a former teacher and principal on the Waianae Coast, is spearheading a movement to turn Ohikilolo into an area for kanaka maoli (Native Hawaiians) to practice their culture as well as a place for the public to learn about that culture.

“There’s a lot of history that hasn’t been shared … right now we are releasing it so that we can protect the land,” Kila said.

Other community members, including state Sen. Maile Shimabukuro, are on board with the idea of trying to preserve Ohikilolo.

Most of the land is owned by the Pickering family of Arizona, and any push toward creating a state conservation district in Ohikilolo would require approval by the state Board of Land and Natural Resources and cooperation from the family.

One of the family members, Tim Pickering, told Civil Beat that there are currently no plans to develop the area.

As a first step, community members have asked Shimabukuro to request that the state conduct a study that not only considers the archeological sites in the area, but also analyzes how those sites relate to Hawaiian culture. Such a study could be used to recommend the property to the National Registry of Historic Places.

Sacred Lands
The aboriginal families of the Waianae Coast considered Ohikilolo to be part of Kanehunamoku — the sacred lands of Kane, the Hawaiian sun deity.

They believe that in this valley, the first human, La’ila’i, was born. In the Kumulipo, the Hawaiian creation story, La’ila’i becomes the mother of the Hawaiian race.


Image above: From ().

Ohikilolo and the rest of the Kea’au Valley represent a complete ahupua’a, a land district stretching from the mountains to the sea.

Residents of each ahupua’a depended on the others for survival. Coastal dwellers would often trade their fish to valley residents for taro or sweet potatoes, for instance.

“It was a living community made of Native Hawaiians that took care of the land,” Kila said.

In Ohikilolo, the people adhered to the concept of Ka’anani’au — meaning to manage the beauty of time — that regulated land areas through wet and dry seasons.

Kila says the archeological sites could demonstrate the interplay between Native Hawaiian religion and culture. The 1992 study found tools for agriculture and fishing, rock piles that may have once been heiau (Hawaiian temples), foundations for dwellings and walls to divert water for farming.

“The archaeological remains here may be the last representative of a complete prehistoric settlement system on leeward Oahu,” the report said.

After being deeded to a servant of Kamehameha I, spending much of its history as a ranch, and getting glances from a Japanese corporation for a golf course and the city for a dump, parts of Ohikilolo became the property of the Pickerings.

Residents On The Lookout
Cynthia Rezentes, Nanakuli-Maili Neighborhood Board chairwoman, said possible development in Ohikilolo by the Pickerings has been an issue for seven years. In 2007, Robert Pickering acquired 735 acres of land in Ohikilolo and the surrounding area for $3.8 million, according to property documents.

Around 2010, the Pickerings first had the idea to put a luxury housing development on the property, Rezentes said.

Tim Pickering told Civil Beat that the land was never developed because he couldn’t find any investors nor could he negotiate retrofitting the area with roads and adding sewer lines. Pickering hasn’t filed for any building permits or conditional use permits on the agricultural land.

Residents were worried when they recently found a $3.5 million real estate listing from Chaney Brooks & Co. for the 60 acres that includes most of the archeological sites, but representatives of the real estate company told Civil Beat that the listing is from about six years ago and the property is no longer on the market.

In the time that Pickering had the property on the market, even creating a website to try to sell it himself, he only had one person who ever contacted him about it, but that “faded pretty fast,” he said.

“It’s just staying the way it is,” Pickering said. Development “wouldn’t happen for a long time if it happens at all.”

In March, residents worried that Makaha La, another development, would stretch into Ohikilolo.

But Tom Tisher, a real estate agent working with Makaha La, said that the new subdivision would be in Makaha, not Ohikilolo.

The potential for development of Ohikilolo still troubles some community members.

“It’s a waiting game to see whether or not they want to package something again,” Rezentes said. “But they need the draw. If you can get investors to tap into something like this you can potentially build something.”

Hiking To A Temple
On a recent weekend, Chris Oliveira took a small group of hikers up a Makaha hillside to a sacred site. The people of Waianae have traditionally been stubborn, said Oliveira, Kila’s nephew.

In fact, while other Hawaiians were converting to Protestantism, many who lived in Waianae became Catholic. Stories tell of the people’s ancestors being so bold as to call the fire goddess Pele a malihini — a foreigner, he said.

From the road, the hillside wouldn’t necessarily catch anyone’s eye. But the terraces are actually man-made retaining walls stacked to create a temple out of the mountain.

Hawaiians “believed that the preservation of land is more important than the ambitions of man,” Oliveira said. “You see constructions that add to the already natural surroundings … Who could build a bigger temple than this?”

The temple has been ravaged by time and desecrated by a large water pipe that once ran across the hill, Oliveira said.


Image above: About 200 acres, parts of which contain burial sites and petroglyphs, are being used for a solar farm. From original article.

Next to the temple is a large solar farm covering burial sites and petroglyphs.

A solar farm and other military developments such as the Kaena Point Satellite Tracking Station and U.S. Army practice range in Makua Valley are just a few in a long line of developments that have covered up the history of the Waianae Coast, Kila said.

In World War II, the beach fronting Pokai Bay became a recreational center for military officers.

Kila’s relatives once owned portions of that land and refused to leave. They were onipa’a, he said — stubborn. When they resisted, the military shut off their water and electricity and moved them away in trucks.

In the 1960s, much of the coast was designated for hotel developments. Many landowners, including Kila’s family, stood to gain financially if they sold out to would-be hotel and condo builders, Kila said.

Pokai Bay was supposed to become a yacht harbor for residents who would have moved into condos along the coast. The development would have destroyed a heiau that is still used for cultural practices and ceremonies today, Kila said.

Kila’s family went door to door along the coast to convince property owners, as well as legislators who originally backed developers, to block the proposals. It worked. Now, the only buildings near Pokai Bay are the military recreational center, several small home and one apartment building.

The World As A Canoe
When Kila was being taught by his elders, no videotaping or even writing was allowed. Stories, prayers and chants needed to be remembered and passed on orally.

In addition, public sharing of their cultural practices was forbidden.

They were even reluctant to reveal the location of many sites for fear they would be destroyed.

He’s more open now, however, and wants to fight further development by educating the public on the cultural significance of different areas.

“We believe that by preserving Ohikilolo, not developing it, and expanding it as an educational system, the whole world can learn about who we are as human beings and our relationship with the ‘aina,” Kila said.

Kila and Oliveira run the Marae Ha’a Koa, a cultural learning center in Waianae. Its focus is the “preservation and perpetuation of the rich cultural heritage of the Waianae Coast,” according to its website.

Oliveira has taken the helm of education efforts on culture and regularly takes community members to historic sites. He also has authored several children’s books on Native Hawaiian culture.

Kila said his kuleana, or responsibility, is to pass on his knowledge; Oliveira’s is to spread, chronicle and contextualize it.

In the 1992 study, researchers recommended that the area surveyed in Ohikilolo should be recommended to the National Registry of Historic Places. The study was only done on about 60 acres of the Pickerings’ land, and some community members think more archeological sites exist in other areas of the valley.

To eventually protect the entirety of the valley, Kila has suggested the state conduct a Traditional Cultural Properties study.

TCPs go beyond analyzing physical features and include the cultural significance of an area.
Shimabukuro said she will contact the Historic Preservation Division of the state Department of Land and Natural Resources to see what can be done to begin the TCP process.

Community members have requested that she also ask for access to Ohikilolo for cultural practices.

Shimabukuro, who has been involved with preserving Ohikilolo since earlier this year, said that eventually she, and others in the community, want the land to be designated as a conservation district.

The state law for creating a conservation subzone in Ohikilolo includes cooperating with the landowner as well as creating maps and conducting additional studies of the area, according to state documents.

Because of its archeological sites, Ohikilolo could be eligible for the highest conservation subzone, protective, which would effectively ban most development there.

“This world is one canoe. If we jump up and down in a canoe, it hulis. It turns over, and we all perish,” Kila said. “We can’t have people hurting it or one group of people jumping up and down and turn the world into nothingness.”

          Do you feel Capitalism dying?        
SUBHEAD: We need to develop the fortitude and skills needed for the future that is coming at us.

By Joe Brewer on 24 July 2017 for Medium -
(https://medium.com/@joe_brewer/do-you-still-feel-capitalism-dying-c487b89c42ca)


Image above: A sign about "Capitalism" in Westminister Square with the Tower of London at British Parlement in the background. From (https://medium.com/@discomfiting/kill-capitalism-before-it-kills-us-fe23d10f6243).

Can you feel capitalism dying around you? There is a mental disease of late-stage capitalism causing deep worry and anxiety, prompting feelings of severe isolation and humiliation, combined with a profound sense of powerlessness for millions of people around the world.

The question I ask today is What are YOU going to do about it?

The feeling bubbles up when students graduate from college with mountains of debt and few prospects for meaningful work. It spreads across cities where housing prices are skyrocketing and a giant financial chasm exists between owners and renters of residential property. And it aches in the spiraling decay of exploited ecosystems as they unravel after decades (or centuries) of pillaging industries waging war on nature.

There is a reason only 5 men have the same aggregate wealth as half the human population. And that the Earth’s climate is ramping up for a phase transition that threatens our entire civilization. It is because a Global Architecture of Wealth Extraction has been carefully built up in the last five hundred years to produce exactly these outcomes.

And it is causing millions of people to feel a malaise of loneliness and quiet desperation that tickles at the edge of their tongues — yet they don’t quite know what to call it.

I’ve called it late-stage capitalism and this resonated with hundreds of thousands when I wrote about it last year. The depth and tenor of this resonance revealed that these feelings are truly widespread and the currents run deep within our veins.

So what are we going to do with these feelings? Some tens of millions of Americans decided to elect President Trump last year. They had fallen victim to a sophisticated information war that functions as a kind of political mind control.

Too few among them were able to discern what is really going on and now they are emotionally manipulated pawns in the end game for a small cohort of super-elites.

This is not an acceptable place to direct the feelings we have about the death of capitalism. It will only accelerate us on the path to planetary-scale collapse that we need to reckon with in our lifetimes.

Instead — if we can develop the fortitude and skills — we need to direct these feelings toward the much more productive path of learning how to design cultural change.

You see, it has been our inability to collectively set intentions that enabled elite groups to divide-and-conquer us in these times of mass confusion, hardship, and despair.

We need to recognize that the real state of power is culture and learn how to wield this power the way our ancestors once did.

Anthropologists who study hunter-gatherer societies have long known that they are all egalitarian.

Bullies and dictators were not able to rise up and boss people around because the group sanctioned against it.

They did this through a combination of shaming and ostracism, or in extreme cases they resorted to expulsion or execution. But they were able to keep the bullies in check becaus;
  1. everyone knew everyone else in these small bands of people and
  2. relationships of trust were robust enough to navigate conflicts and cooperate effectively against individuals who might be stronger or more skilled at hunting than any one person on their own.
We now have a vast digital infrastructure — the internet plus cell phones and satellite communication systems — that make it possible for the first time since the birth of civilizations to coordinate with transparency and trust at larger scales of society.

Yet we remain divided into political tribes, fighting amongst each other at the beckoning of those who set the terms of debate.

Are you a Democrat or Republican? Socialist or Capitalist?

A person of color or a beneficiary of white privilege? Categories of division such as these may have important realities embedded within them but none gets at the root issue that defines these times.

We are in a deep crisis that is carrying us all on the path toward extinction. We must learn to rise above our labels of separation and remember that everything is connected. Only then can we be seeds of transformation in a world where most of our stories are breaking down.

So I call upon you to name your feelings of angst and powerlessness.

Recognize that you are living through the death of a capitalist system that has brought our entire civilization to the brink of ruin.

Learn how to design for change in a world where only through a paradigm shift in values and behaviors will it be possible to navigate our way toward planetary resilience in the decades ahead.

We can get to the future we all want but only when we realize that it is our power to create cultural mythologies that has blinded us to our place within a world barreling toward humanity’s end.

This power must now be employed in service of life, compassion, humility, and care for the living world. These are dangerous times and our actions matter more than most of us are ready to realize.

Take hold of your feelings and direct them toward life, healing, and regeneration of our broken world.

We owe it to ourselves. We owe it to our children, born and unborn.

And we owe it to the many other species whose very existence are now in jeopardy because an arrogant myth of human superiority has driven us to soil the beds we must sleep in as members of the natural world ourselves.

Time is short and there is much work to be done.

Onward, fellow humans.

          I bought a new car!         
So what's the most exciting smell in the world?  Before any of you take this in a terrible direction, I'll just stop you and say it's new car smell.  And that's the very smell I've been enjoying since last Thursday, when I traded in my 2009 Pontiac G5 for a brand new 2014 Kia Optima LX.  Let's get down to brass tacks and go through the process of how I ended up buying Korean. 
So first of all, why did I decide to get rid of my Pontiac?  Well, short answer is after 5 years of good service, she was starting to act up.  I had just replaced my front shocks and serpentine belt (it's always nice to have family with tools and a hoist!), but then I started getting an intermittent warning popping up stating that my ABS and Traction Control needed work.

This in itself isn't necessarily a bad thing, but the car has been in the shop before for this sort of thing and they have never been able to pin down the problem.  It probably just needed some front brake servicing.  Anyway, I'd just plunked down a lot of cake in the past few weeks on this car and with an odometer reading of over 200,000km I seriously doubt that it was going to get cheaper over time. 

Also, there was the ever important feeling of car awesomeness that was lacking from my poor G5.  Sure, it was a decent car, but it never was really a car that made you want to drive.  I mean, destinations made me want to go places and my car would take me there, but I was never excited to get behind the wheel.

So, for the next car my main priorities were something fuel efficient, safe, good storage and at least a little fun to drive.  I figured my storage and comfort needs would likely mean I was looking at big(ish) hatchback or mid-sized sedan.  Although I fully expect to have one in my future at some point, I'm not big on crossovers and compact SUVs.

I also wanted to buy new because I drive a lot.  I put all but 14 of the 202,000km on the Pontiac and it was only 5 years old.  So, I need all the warranty I can muster out of a car, plus the piece of mind in knowing that the maintenance has been done correctly and regularly is a major plus in my books.  Also, finance rates on used cars are terrible and finance rates on new cars, which go as low as 0%, are good.  Now sometimes you have to forgo some cash incentives to get that low rate, but in the long run the overall costs are lower if you have to finance.  And since I didn't have an extra $30K in cash just hanging around to pay for my new car, I was definitely going to be financing.     

I took a look at some larger compact hatches (Ford Focus, Kia Forte5, Mazda3, Hyundai Elantra GT) and I wasn't terribly interested in any of them.  I've read great things about the Mazda3, but the base motor on it is a little underwhelming.  Maybe the Mazda3 with the 2.5L would be an awesome car, but then the sticker is over my budget of mid-$20K.  From sitting in it at the auto shows, I know I don't like the way I fit in the Focus.  The Elantra GT is a pretty decent car, but my co-worker literally just bought one and I didn't want to be a copycat.  The Kia Forte5 was decent too, but had a little too much wind noise on the highway (where I do most of my driving).

I know what you're thinking, with all of my Subaru love why didn't I test drive one?  Because Subaru doesn't have good financing rates (usually) and I find their entry level offerings a little too pokey.  Great, smooth drives yes, but not a lot of the factor that Mazda refers to as Zoom-Zoom.  If I had a bigger budget, I would likely have gone with the new WRX.  But I didn't, so that dream has to lay dormant for now.

So, I moved on to the most over populated segment in the automotive world, the mid-sized sedan!  I drove a Hyundai Sonata, a Kia Optima and a Ford Fusion.  The other cars that I would have considered are the new Mazda6 and the Nissan Altima.  To be honest though, I avoided the Japanese brands because the content level on the models I could afford was too low.  The Mazda6 is probably a great car, but there were some compromises with insurance costs and exterior features I like (for instance I couldn't afford fog lamps... not that I ever use them, but I like the way they look, dammit!). 

It was the same story for the fusion.  It's a gorgeous car, but the base model leaves a lot at the door before it ends up in your garage.  It had the almost embarrassing 2.5L motor, steel wheels with plastic covers and no fog lamps.  The handling was pretty great, but it's hard to ignore the fact that the car can't get out of its own way.  When Michelle drove and tried to get it to move the first words out of her mouth were "What the hell is this [crap]" *edited for content.

So it was down to the Korean brands.  To be honest, I like pretty much every car in this segment and the Kia and Hyundai are no exception.  Add to that the fact that both brands were having a sale with aggressive financing, and it's pretty clear to see why I was leaning towards the offerings from the land of Samsung.  But which was better?

The Sonata and the Optima are essentially the same car under their skin.  They have the same platform and engine/transmission options.  Where they differ enormously is looks and where they differ slightly is content per price point.  The Optima is the way more aggressively styled of the two.  While the Sonata is sleek and flowing, the Optima is raked and ready to pounce.  As for content at the dollar level that I was shopping at, the two cars were fairly close.

Both cars had satellite radio, heated seats and good safety ratings.  The Sonata was a sea of hard plastic inside, while the Optima had cloth inserts in the doors and softer materials on the dash and on upper door sills.  And on the outside, the Optima had the all important fog lamps and around back, some bad ass dual exhaust tips.  Sold.

I also really enjoy the ride.  It's well composed and extremely quiet inside.  Not BMW quiet, but certainly closer than the sticker price would suggest.  The steering is a little numb at certain speeds and I'm still getting used to the brake pedal's lack of feedback, but all in all I'm really pleased.  The engine has more than enough get up and go for my driving needs and the six-speed auto has a playful select shift mode for added sportiness.

Over all though, the Optima was the most car I could afford.  It checked all my boxes: good safety, in my budget, great storage, comfortable, fun to drive, good fuel economy and great styling.  And not only did I stay on budget, but my insurance costs went down. 

My main point is there are a lot of factors to take into consideration when purchasing a new vehicle.  Without an unlimited budget, you are going to have make some compromises along the way.  In the end, your decision on what to buy needs to make sense to you from the most angles possible.  It may be daunting, but if you do your research and take some test drives, you're best option will likely present itself. 

So is the Optima LX the best mid-sized car you can buy?  Probably not at that trim level.  But it's the best car I've ever owned and that's more than good enough for me.  At least for now, anyway!

          Chinese quantum satellite sends "unbreakable" code        
BEIJING - China has sent an "unbreakable" code from a satellite to the Earth, marking the first time space-to-ground quantum key distribution technology has been realised, state media said on Thursday.

China launched the world's first quantum satellite last August, to help establish "hack proof" communications, a development the Pentagon has called a "notable advance".

The official Xinhua news agency said the latest experiment was published in the journal Nature on Thursday, where reviewers called it a "milestone".

The satellite sent quantum keys to ground stations in China between 645 km (400 miles) and 1,200 km (745 miles) away at a transmission rate up to 20 orders of magnitude more efficient than an optical fibre, Xinhua cited Pan Jianwei, lead scientist on the experiment from the state-run Chinese Academy of Sciences, as saying.

"That, for instance, can meet the demand of making an absolute safe phone call or transmitting a large amount of bank data," Pan said.

Any attempt to eavesdrop on the quantum channel would introduce detectable disturbances to the system, Pan said.

"Once intercepted or measured, the quantum state of the key will change, and the information being intercepted will self-destruct," Xinhua said.

The news agency said there were "enormous prospects" for applying this new generation of communications in defence and finance.

China still lags behind the United States and Russia in space technology, although President Xi Jinping has prioritised advancing its space programme, citing national security and defence.

China insists its space programme is for peaceful purposes, but the U.S. Defense Department has highlighted its increasing space capabilities, saying it was pursuing activities aimed at preventing adversaries from using space-based assets in a crisis.

          It's About Time -- Of Course . . .        
What could be more timely . . . the spring ahead time change. It kinda snuck up on us this time. We thought that we had a few more weeks. We have noticed that it is staying light later each day and the mornings are bright and sunny as well. After tomorrow it will be a bit darker when we get up, but we always get used to it after a few days. The evening light will be nice.



It is really about time, in fact it is almost spring, which arrives in less than two weeks. This week, here in Sonoma County it seems like spring. There are trees and flowers in bloom, the birds are active and the sounds of baseball are beginning to be a daily thing out back of our yard.

We actually almost walked over to watch the baseball events, but decided to wait until we see some uniformed players -- that should be coming very soon.

We can't forget that tonight at bedtime we need to change at least some of our clocks forward by one hour. Some of our clocks are controlled by the satellite and/or computer so they don't need to be manually changed. Still others do need to be changed . . .


TV programming lately for us has been sparse except for this week we have watched one of the new season nine episodes of WDYTYA.

Courteney Cox was the first featured celebrity to have genealogical results shared with her and with us the viewers, last Sunday night.

Courteney, it turns out has a long line of British Royalty that she connects with and in very interesting ways.

It would be so nice to be able to show a family tree that identifies real ancestors, Royal or not Royal.
Her family tree is proven back to the tenth or eleventh century, maybe earlier even. I have been able to show the HILES line almost through the seventeenth century.

For Gail's side, on one line we can go back almost as far as Courteney's line. We keep hoping to expand other lines also.

This Sunday night on TLC's WDYTYA, they are featuring Julie Bowen and they promise to have some shocking revelations about her family -- always sounds interesting to me.

Unfortunately, always hanging over my head is the dreaded tax return for the current year.

Just this last week, when I actually decided to mean business and gather all our "stuff" and put this thing to rest, we see that we did not have everything that we needed and had to send for the info.

It is a good and bad thing in that, I can put off  for about another seven days (snail mail) attempting to finish.

The bad thing is that I won't have any excuses when the needed documents do show up . . .

We'll face that when it happens. The simplification of the tax system can't come fast enough -- though as we have said before -- "be careful for what you wish" . . .




But even though I have the "tax stuff" going on, everyday I try to work on some aspect of the family tree.

This helps me be grounded and energized as I lose myself climbing through the branches.

I have found a lot of interesting people and things and facts, just not so much that I feel worthy of reporting about, though it is all put into the tree.

I'm constantly amazed at the branches that I find and the fact that so many different surnames are surprisingly related to us.

In the tree that I have on Ancestry.com there are two people short of 15,000 today. That may even change later today if I need "grounding" . . .

We still read throughout the day and every night before drifting off to dreamland. Some books on the nightstand cause us to drift off earlier than others:


Last night we just finished "The Year of Living Danishly" and we are both happy about that. While the book was very interesting and humorous, we think we could have done with about six months or so.

We did learn a lot about Danish life and it is safe to say that we don't feel that we could stand some of the lifestyle -- e.g. the winter months, when cold and darkness prevail and folks remain inside their homes for huge periods of time.

Tonight, we will start reading "The Stranger in my Genes" by Bill Griffeth. It is about the results of DNA revealing just who is in their family tree -- so we look forward to finding that out.

Prior to "Danishly" we read "The Dash", "The Cozy Life" and "Silent Legacy", all fascinating in their own ways. We are doing are best to keep those "Amazon" delivery services -- soon to be drones, maybe -- active.

One thing we can say for sure from our perspective:


We think that it is "normal" to find the many circumstances and the varied types of folks in a family tree, making it then, normal . . . that makes sense, right?

That is a bit of our week. See you all "in a few"!

          Mune: Guardian of the Moon—A One-Day GKIDS Event        
The astronomy of it is terrible, but the world-building of this French fantastical fable is quite a wonder. According to this world’s creation myth, the original Guardian of the Sun reeled in the celestial body with a harpoon, while the Guardian of the Moon brought back the nocturnal satellite from the land of dreams. Ever since then, their apostolic predecessors have used fantastical pack animals to drag the sun and moon through their world, maintaining the balance between night and day. Nobody would choose a confidence-challenged forest faun like Mune to be a guardian, but the decision is made for him in Alexandre Heboyan & Benoît Philippon’s Mune: Guardian of the Moon(trailer here), which screens this Saturday as a special GKIDS Fathom Events presentation.

In a special ceremony incorporating dwellers of both day and night, the apprentices of the Guardians of the Sun and Moon will succeed their masters. It is supposed to be a mere formality, but the lunar ewe (a lamb, how archetypal) selects Mune instead. That looks like a bad call when Mune crashes the giant ostrich-bound temple, losing the moon when its gossamer bonds are severed.

Matters get even worse when Sohone, the preening new Guardian of the Sun leaves his post to give Mune a good chewing out. Minions of Necross, the Miltonian former Guardian of the Sun-turned evil, take advantage of his absence to steal the sun. Obviously, Mune and Sohone will have to put aside their differences to reacquire the sun and moon. Fortunately, Glim, the dusk-living wax creature serves as a peacemaker and motivational coach for them both. However, they must take care to look after her. She stiffly coagulates in cold temperatures and would fatally melt in excessive heat.

Mune is one of the most visually arresting works of feature-length computer animation ever produced. It is a richly detailed world, filled with exotic creatures, constructed atop a compellingly original mythos-foundation. This film looks great, but the characterization is rather pat and predictable (the reluctant quest-hero who rises to the occasion, the spurned apprentice who gets played by the super villain, and the arrogant young guardian who learns a lesson in humility). Several of the shtickier characters, such as Necross’s bumbling minions and Glim’s hand-wringing father also quickly wear out their welcome.

Still, this is a lovely film that rewards virtue and inspires forgiveness. It shares some of weaknesses of big budget studio animation, but the craftsmanship is far superior. Frankly, Takeshi Yashiro’s utterly charming stop-motion-animated short Moon of a Sleepless Night tells a somewhat thematically-similar story, but it is even more captivating. Mune is nice too, but not as magical. Recommended for family viewing, Mune: Guardian of the Moon screens this Saturday afternoon (8/12) at participating theaters nationwide, including the AMC Empire in New York.

          Modern-Day Alaskan Broadband Benefits from Satellite Earth Station Competition        
August 10 – Today’s technologically advanced Alaska is a far cry from Jack London’s frontier in The Call of the Wild. Yet while dog-sledding remains a common form of transportation, the image of the disconnected wilderness man is today more myth than reality.
          A célunk és akkor mindjárt azt is meg kel mondani ki az a Mi...        

Nos hát erről van szó. Tűz víz levegő föld.
Nem kevés.
A tüzet hagyom utoljára az a legnagyobb téma. A tűz a pszichikai teret jelenti a lélek terét, a közösségek pszichéjét közösen, és egyénileg itt végzett az elmúlt 6000 év sátániszmusa iszonyatos munkát. Az összes többi kár csak ennek járulékos következménye mert mindent a pszihénken keresztül csinálunk legyen az hárború vagy béke, üzlet vagy barátság, fejlesztés vagy rombolás mindenben benne van az egyéni sors az egyéni célok és a nagy közösség hatása együtt.

A VÍZ
H2O, Az emberi test 70%-a víz. A földi élet alapja.
A radioaktív szennyezést egy ideig elnyeli, majd telítődik vele és sugározni kezdi. Az atomerőművek ezért használnak sok vizet, hogy elfedjék a károkozást és még az előtt lecseréljék a vizet mielőtt sugározni kezdené vissza. E helyett hagyják hogy elfolyon messzebb híguljon a többi vízzel keveredve - és ott tovább károkozva. Mindet be kell zárni.
Ezen kívül ott a hatalmas olaj és egyéb biológiai kémiai károkozás is aminek mindegyiknek a fő oka a felelősség áthárítása és a mérhetetlen kapzsiság, a profit éhség.
A személyes felelősség hiánya az egyik legjelentősebb faktor. Ezért a nem természetes személyek jogait meg kell szüntetni. Birtokos, tulajdonos, felelős nem lehet egy nem létező fiktív cég, bot, üzlet, csoport - még akkor sem ha tényleg valós természetes személyek alkotják.
Tehát ezt jogi intézményt meg kell szüntetni.
E mellett kell egy jó ütőképes hadsereg akik hajlandók a közös célért dolgozni megalkuvás mentesen hajlandók gyilkolni, és hajlandók a saját és szeretteik kényelmét, biztonságát és akár az életét is kockára tenni a cél érdekében. Ez a hadsereg azért kell mert csak erővel lehet kikényszeríteni ilyen típusú változásokat. Csak haláls erővel és sokszor még ez se működik a sátánista zombi feledat robotok ellen.
Olyan aki pénzért, kényelemért és anyagi vagy hatalmi előnyökért eltér a célunktól nem tartozik közénk. Az ilyenek közül sokan segítettek is meg dolgoztak ellenünk is. Ők a ballaszt.

A LEVEGŐ
O, H, H2O, N, CO2 stb
Sok sok alkotóeleme van és még annál is több mint az alkotó elemeinek összessége.
A fák szén dioxidot (CO2) lélegeznek be és Oxigént (O) lélegeznek ki. A tüdős élőlények - közöttük az ember oxigént lélegzik be és szén-dioxidot ki. A kapcsolat a föld a levegő a víz és a mindent átszövő plazma álapotok között olyan mély hogy a külön tárgyalásnak vannak komoly hátrányai, még elhihetnénk hogy a levegő és a víz két külön dolog és nincs közöttük összefüggés.
De van.
Az ipari forradalom óta elkezdődött iszonyatos méretű erdőirtások (1600-as évek második fele);  majd az 1900-as évek népességrobbanása, az iaprosodás, a szar minőségű tömegtermelés, a fogyasztói zombi 'kultúra', az autógyártás és a robbanómotorok elterjedése, az agyonhallgatott időjárás módosító módszerek és technológia az elmúlt 100 éveben több kárt okozott mint amennyi kár az elmúlt 6000 év alatt keletkezett a föld életrendszerében és a levegőben. 2060-ra nem lesz emlős életben.
2017 az a 'pont' ahonnan még drasztikus tettekkel lehetne visszafordulni később erre már nem lesz lehetőség. A károk hatása később jelentkezik és onnan már nem lesz visszafordítható a pusztulási folyamat.
Az elektromos motorokra át kel ltárni - mindenben jobb mint a belső égésű - az erdőirtásokat le kell állítani, az időjárással és a légköri rendzserrel való visszaéléseket expozálni kell és beszüntetni. Itt az olajiparban gazdagodó szarházik a fő felelősök. De nem csak ők a fő gonosz akik ezt irányítja a circus tagjait jelenti akik maszkban soha nem a saját valódi nevükön, mindenféle felelősség vállalása nélkül milliárdokat zsebelnek be és ne mtörődnek semmilyen következménnyel se rövid se hosszú távon.

A FÖLD
A föld teremti meg az élelem lehetőségét. Attól sokkal több, de most egyszerűsítve ezt jelenti. Az egyre kevesebb csapadék miatt kiszárad. A növényvilág haldoklik. És vele együtt mindenki más is meg fog halni.
A profitéhség itt is megteszi a rothasztó hatását. A végig soha nem gondolt vegyszerek, mesterséges trágyák, génmanipulált növények és állatfajok... (kártevőket is tenyésztenek és GMO-znak persze mindjárt legyártják a permetszert is hogy legyen megoldás... és abból hatalmas lóvé is...) hatalmas károkat okoztak itt is ami megint összefügg a vízzel és a levegővel is. A soha le nem bomló szemét az olaj és a többi rothasztó szar mind meg kell hogy szűnjön.
Itt is megint csak a személyes felelősség vállalásának a hiánya és a hatalm és a profit hajszolása a fő okai a problémának.
A globálisan szervezett hazudozás ezekről a problémákról és a tuatosan a károkozók által pénzlet ál és vélrevezető fórumokon kitalált 'megoldások' - amik semmiféle valós megoldást nem jelentenek - szintén tovább növeli a probléma megoldhatatlanságát a megértés szintjén is - de ez már a psziciai tér tisztaságát érinti. Ezt is a cirus tagjai irányítják.

A TÅ°Z
A plazma tér. Az anyagok negyedik állapota. A lélek tér, a psziché tere. Egy minden területet befolyásoló, átszövő energia, erő és információs tér.
Minden amit ember tesz a pszichéjén kersztül teszi.
Itt dől el hogy MIT teszünk, MIÉRT tesszük és HOGYAN tesszük amit teszünk.
Ez az alapvető probléma tere tehát ami a földi életet úgy tűnik el fogja pusztítani. A Mit, Miért és Hogyan kérdéseire adott rossz, helytelen válaszok, melyek a profit és a hatalom elérését megtartását szogálják rövid és hosszú távon szinte kizárólag.
Ennek a térnek a kitakarítása a elgnagyobb probléma és ezen múlik az összes többi terület tisztasága is.
Az egyetlen lehetséges út pedig az egyenes, tiszta, őszinte, lényeglátó, nyílt és hangos beszéd amit mindenki megért. A hazudozás olyan szövevényessé és ravasszá vált mára - a circus tagjai fejlesztették mert a szarházi céljaikat másképp nem érhették volna el a többi ember soha nem engedte volna őket érvényesülni ha tudják és értik mit akarnak.... - hogy a zegyszerű ember képtelen eligazodni benne.
A pszichéről való tudást visszatartják a cirus tagjai mind az egyéni psziché működésével kapcsolatos tudást mind a közös tudattal és tudaton kívüli részekről szóló szabályokat. Ezt azért teszik mert ők tudják hogy a pszichén múlik minden hatalom és abból csinálnak maguknak pénzt.
A legnagyobb baj hogy olyan régóta forgatják fel az emberi psziché természetes fejlődését hogy már ők maguk is olyan messze vannak mindentől ami a természet rendjébe illene hogy az életük élet idegenné vált. De a többi ember életét is eltorzítják és zombikat jól irányítható szolgákat nevelnek belőlük sokszor már magzat kortól. Ezért a pszichikai tér kitakarítása a legnehezebb. EGy önmagával tisztában ne mlévő ember hogyan érti meg a saját pszichés folyamatait és a közös tudat működésének törvényeit ha minden nap a megélhetéséért kell küzdenie és ezen felül amior hazamegy egy veszekedésre kondícionált 'család' várja...
A természet rendje szerint élő és feklődő szeretet közösségeket a circus tagjai globálisan szétverik és vadásszák, mert azok az emberek akik ilyen környezetben nőttek fel, mindig sokkal jobbak és pszichésen erősebbek mint ők.
Ebben a károkozásban élen jár a sok ezer éves sátánista zsidó kultúra a többivel kart karba öltve. A zsidó kultúra egy vérkultúra mely világ uralomra jutott bár mára már semmi más nem tartja össze ezt e nemzetközi közösséget mint a pénz és a hatalom, meg a hedonizáló, élvezet hajszoló életvitel.
A cirus tagjai maszkokat hordanak, álneveken élnek, de hivatalos állami fórumokról kibocsátott papírjaik vannak és ők birtokolják a pénzek legnagyobb részét. Minden állam költségvetéséből még ma is 50% világszerte ennek a körnek a bevételét jelenti, amiből a kiterjedt szolga szarházi hordát finanszírozzák.
A vérgőzös gondolkodásban az élet semmibe vétele általánossá vált. A maskarás circus tagok semmiféle felelősséget nem vállalnak miközben az élet alapvető feltételeit teszik tönkre. Az összes circus tagot meg kell ölni! Egy se maradhat életben! 
 Lábbal tipornak minden természetes határt és folyamatot. Hazudnak mindenről mindenkinek az hogy mit állítanak csak a saját hatalmi és pénzügyi érdekeik szabják meg. Jól irányítható és kihasználható szolgákat akarnak nevelni mindennkiből és akiből ne mtudnak azt megpróbálják megtörni, megalázni és elpusztítani.
A józan ésszerű érveléssel semmit sem lehet náluk elérni. Ezt én magam bizonyítottam a nemzetközi hálózat felé. Egyetlen dolgot lehet velük tenni: meg kell ölni őket. Mindet.
E mellett pedig fel kell építeni az egészséges határokat ismerő azokat megtartó és akár halálos erővel  másokkal is betartató szeretetre építő világ közösséget.
Erre ma már nem sok esélyt látok. Túl sok a megalkuvó és az olyan aki szépen a szőnyeg alá söpri a hatalmas problémákat mert kényelmesebb egy jót sörözni a haverokkal mint ezért dolgozni az egészséged és az életed kockára téve, sőt a szeretteid életét kényelmét kockára téve... ezek mind szarházik az én szememben. Szolgák és seggnyalók és ők is pontosan ugyanazt csinálják mint a circus teteje. Részei ennek a folyamatnak és bele is fognak ők maguk is dögleni. De sebaj.

2017 Július 4
"Akkor én meg bele fogok lépni minden pocsolyamaradványba hogy lásd mezítláb futok..."
"Á nem kell... látom én azt a nélkül is."
"Jó, te meg majd akkor gyere lóval..."
"Jó és honnan szerezzek lovat?"
'Majd rájössz akkor..."
...
A forrás olyan puskapor száraz hogy na... az "itt a tó - itatónak" annyi...
De a fecske repülés közben iszik még mindig... ezen se tudott változtatni a vérima meg a nyakvagdosó szarházik hada.
De a buszeszes rohadék fazuzalékból meg az olajfinomítóból kapott szemétből csinál ecetet... a kukoricából főzőtt alkoholból meg piát csinál... A cukorgyárba meg nem visznek ám túl sok cukorrépát csak mutatóba... de a saját sörét nem issza ám meg... azért nem mert tudja mi van benne... egy rohadék... De a tarnay néni is az... meg akiknek csináltuk anno a karamellás cukrot a lengyeleknek - azok is szarházik az volt itt az a csaj... aki méltatlankodott hogy de miért ezt adtuk... mellette a szőke magasabb kivégző katona... most rám akarja uszítani őket... kurva kis rohadék... A mora... oda is odahívtak hogy túl nagy a fogyasztása segítsek valahogy olcsón lenyomni... akkor körbeszigeteltük a sütőteret és mindjárt nem fogyasztott annyit.
Azután a dinamót használtuk valamire talán fegyvernek lőni lehetett vele vagy valami ilyesmit építeni belőle, dinamónak szar volt... "Akkor oda nehéz tüzérség kel majd..." "Mondj egy beépülőt gyorsan..." "De kiket hívsz te nehéztüzérségnek?" "A petrityék..." "Ahhh ne viccelj ez neked a nehéz  tüzérség... tudod én kiket neveztem annak... a vadállatokat akiket én fogtam le és semlegesítettem..." "Tudom."
Lassan kezdi mindenki látni hogy tényleg úgy van: ők maguk a rohadék patkány tömb akik tönkre teszik a világot... úgy úgy bizony. Pénzért. És kényelemért a legtöbben.
És bizony mi úgy mozgunk közöttetek ahogy csak akarunk és nem tudtok se megállítani se még csak azt se veszitek észre hogy mikor hová mozgunk... de nemsokára meg is mutatom ahogy a helyzetet elnézem nektek hogyan is csinálja ezt egy igazán jó. Ki fogok nyírni még közületek egy jó párat és rátok is fogok szabadítani egy két kegyetlenkedőt- vannak még ne aggódjatok... szabadon engedek egy pár ilyet...
A general motorszos csapatból is itt volt az egyik rohadék... ugat hogy-- de mi fizettünk... nos nem. A megállapodás úgy szólt hogy itt vizettek a végén nekem. Ahogy a haveroknak szoktátok. Ha nem fizettek meg lesztek szépen nyuvasztva... megtalállak benneteket...
---
Szóval futásnál a belégzésnek kell a hosszabbnak lennie. Bent kell tartani egy kicsit a levegőt, kel valamennyi idő amíg a hörgők feldolgozzák... nyomatják is a tüdőmet keményen - fosnak a rohadékok - van is mitől mert én most már ne mfogok haverkodni egyikkel se, irtani fogom őket mint a gazt. Megjelöltem mindegyik rohadék patkányt valamivel meg fogom őket találni mindet. Amelyiknek meg tudom oldani annak olyan fájdalmas és kemény halála lesz amilyet csak produkálni tudok nekik. Tetves rohadékok. Van itt még általuk készített megkínzott sazdista elég... majd beizzítok egy pár ilyen csatornatöltetléket.
Nem számít ám hogy mennyi jót tett ez meg az. Az számít hogy a fő irány amerre tart merre van. Azok a patkányok akik ellenem dolgoztak végig, teljesen mindegy mennyi jót tetek rohadékok és a földi élet alapjait pusztítják. Menniük kell. A jótetteket csak amolyan álcának használják hogy a többit amelyik nem látja mi a valódi hatásuk és céljuk át tudják verni. Hát azért utálnak engem annyira, mert előlem nem tudják elrejteni a valódi énjüket a patkányok.
Egyébként igen a tűztér a legdurvább mind között hiszen a rettenetes ostoba és a kontrollálók által kora gyermekkortól sőt ma már magzat kortól történő tervezett kondícionálása miatt már nincs is ember aki képes lenne a reaális és lényeg látó gondolkodásra a megfelelő bátorság meg végképp elveszett.
Nos nekem magamnak is a saját szüleim ellen is kellett küzdenem. Ott volt anyu aki nem értette meg miért fontos a kiképzés a katonai kiképzés hogy te legyeél a legjobb a gyilkosok között, csak akkor értette meg amikor a bokája ráment egy támadásban és akkor se csinálta meg fenntartások nélkül. Ez annak volt köszönhető hogy aput és anyut is ezek a szarházik vezérelték egymás mellé és pontosan azért őket, hogy az egyik a másikat - főleg anyu aput és bennünket gyerekeket - fogja azaz irányíthatóvá tegye a számukra.
Részben sikerült is. Eleinte sok pénzt amit ki tudtam szedni az öreg tudta nélkül, mert voltak sokan amik kérték hogy segítsek és vadásszam le egyik másik világ szarházi férget... és ki is fizettek érte, azaz megkaptam a vérdíjat értük - az öreg alintézte azt is hogy az ilyen pénzeket se tudjam megtartani.
Aput és anyut akkor még igen jól tudta irányítani és amikor rájuk bíztam belőlük könnyedén kiszedte. Anyu egyszer valami táskagyárban a pécsi kesztyűgyárban adott le rendelést egy táskakollekcióra, amiknek volt rejtett zuga hogy dolgokat tudjanak hozni vinni. Persze abban is benne volt a tarnay m keze és odahívott másik haverja révén hogy mi ez... és hogyan lehetne bojkottálni én meg segítettem neki persze mert anyu is hazudott és átvert. A pénzt amit a házra szántam szintén eltapsolták apu is anyu is... szóval szép dolog. Csak anyu egyedül eltapsolt tőlem három millió dollárt ilyen faszságokra és utána elment egyedül nyaralni... mert ő olyan fáradt... Szóval szép szép és még utána ők is ugattak nekem hogy "amíg az én kenyeremet eszed..." holott... Na de ennyit a családról.
Most megint egy jó pár ilyen emlék került elő.
Először is összeszedtem azt a számítógépet amit már katonai fejlesztés keretében csináltam. Én irányítottam a fejlesztést. Az volt a cél hogy a monitorról pontosan le lehessen olvasni a valós méreteket a képekről legyen az bármilyen képanyag. Méretarányos és pontos legyen. Ehhez iszonyú pontosan kellett dolgozni mind elektronikailag mind a fizikai méreteket átalakító és mérő programokat nagyon jól beállítani. Komoly meló volt.
De ne szaladjunk előre. Az első olyan munkám amivel berobbantam a fejlesztői érába nagyban egy Funai videó lejátszó magnó volt. Gyakorlatilag ez is katonai fejlesztés volt, csak az öreg hadseregének. A rejtett egyenruha nélküli szarházi hordának akik számára semmi más nem volt fontos mint a hatalom megszerzése és annak megtartása.
Bele került egy csomó iszonyú jó dolog. Én is tettem bele egy frankó csiszolás mentes érintő nélküli motort, az volt az első ilyen szerintem ami kikerült bárhova... a videófej lett ilyen. Brushless motor.
Persze azt is teliszarták a saját faszságaikkal. A videó szalagokon ment anno egy csomó információ cseréje hiszen rengeteg dolog fért rá. Viszont ahhoz meg kellett a technikát is csinálni úgy hogy az működjön és csak azok férjenek hozzá akiknek szánva van. Apu csinálta a mechanikát - hihetetlen hogy mit alkotott egyébként még most is csodálom a szerkezeteket amiket fejben megtervezett és erről eszembe is jutott hogy az ő apja vagy nagyapja tervezte a singer varrógépet is, csak apu nem akarta, hogy emlékezzek arra hogy a család is zsidó gyökerekkel volt... mert rühellem ezt a kategóriát és a belé tartozó embercsoportot azaz inkább zombi sátánista agylúgozottat. Csak úgy mint a többi vallási vagy egyéb agyhalottat.
Szóval mi csináltuk a singert és ezek szerint akkor az enigmát is és a szarházi töpszli meg a mágnás is hazudott minderről és már akkor is tőlünk loptak el mindent. Úgy néz ki több nemzedékes elnyomottak vagyunk.
A motorba akkor beletettem a monogrammomat. FP. Legbelülre került. Az öregnek szóltak és reklamált hogy ezt hogy gondoltam... "hát hogyhogy hogy? Én csináltam vagy talán kétségbe vonod?" Szart valamit a szájával végül benne maradt. De oda rakatott egy mintát amiről majd eszembe jut majd hogy ő tudta hogy benne van és persze hogy szeret engem... na ja... A többi dologba már nem tudtam bele tenni semmit se. Mindig tettem viszont valami jelet. Sokáig a megfordított R betűt egy U kíséretében mert abban benne volt az F is meg a P is és azt kérdezte hogy Who are you? De később ebből a jelből is brandet csináltak és olyan dolgokra is rátették amihez semmi közöm se volt. De a nyolcvanas évek elején közepén és végén azért sokmindent én csináltam amire az rákerült. Használtam még a jellemző számaimat is a 76-ot a 3-ast meg mindenfélét kitaláltam mindig mást amiket csak én ismerek fel legtöbbször ha látom. Hogy megismerjem a dolgaimat.
Csináltam pár képet erről a motorról íme:
 Szóval érdekes kis szerkezet. Itt látszik az alsó részen a fej, aminek a szerepe pörgetni a szalagot ne maz olvasás. Hihetetlen hogy mennyi szemetet hitettek el az emberekkel ezzel kapcsolatban...
Hat kis tekercs adja a mozgató impulzusokat felette van egy kis körmgnes négy pólussal két észek két dél... így megy a hajtás. A vezérlő elektorika is azon a zöld panelen van meg a forgórész hejzetét érzékelő három kis fekete cucc is... Sok hármas látható a motoron...
A nagy imiék és a többi rohadék drónt építettek ebből annak idején... annyira nagy teljesítményt ki lehetett hozni belőle hogy ihaj... fel tudott emelni egy csomó mindent mint helikopter motor vagy repülőgép motor... de sok más dologra is jó volt. Autó drónnak is meg víz alatt is...
Szépen ki volt egyensúlyozva pörgött mint a pörgettyű amit gyermekkoromban annyira csodáltam.

 Itt már látszik hogy belül a tetején két pancake adja át az imulzusokat és az a kis réz cucc ami oldalt kiáll - amire azt mondják az ostoba fizető zombiknak hogy az a fej és hogy négyfejes az már hú de tud... nos az egy sima kis réz lapocska amire rá van téve gy valami infra vagy egyéb adó és valahol meg olvassa valami a fordulatszámot...
(És az se lesz mindegy hogy melyiket fogja lefotózni a zöldet vagy a kéket... meg ilyenek...)
mert sorba van kötve a tekerccsel és egy kívül elhelyezett olvasó meg számolja hogy hányat fordult és ennélfogva hol áll a videó szalag... hahaha barmok... hú a tiéd hány fejes... mi...
De ez az érintő nélküli motor alapja. Két ferrit tárcsa két kör tekercs amik egymás tetején elforognak és foroghatnak bármennyit mégis az impulzusok átmennek rajtuk és megérkeznek felülre mindegy hol áll a forgórész.
 Masszív cucc szép is egyébként nagyot alkottunk szerintem... de apu is mondta korábban hogy ilyet nem sokat tudnak ám csinálni a világon.

Kesztyűben dolgoztunk hogy ne gahyjunk ujjlenyomatokat a mintapéldányon... spotless csillogás...
FP Alias Fábik Péter... teccik érteni? ...
Nos nem ez volt az egyetlen ilyen dolog amit beletettünk, de mivel ez a szarházik projektje volt ezért kénytelenek voltunk csupa olyasmit csinálni ami csak vízfestésre jó, meg néhány más dologra, de még így is sikerült pár ilyen dolgot megoldanom. Amikor ezen dolgoztunk akkor csináltam azokkal a frankó általunk épített cnc gépekel - mert azt is mi csinátuk apuval - azt a kis motort amit csak mágnes hajt. Pici kis pörgő masinéria csapágy nélküli tengelyen hatalmas fordulatszámmal és csak mágnessel hajtva...hmmmm nyamm nyamm...
Később a szabi is csinált ilyesmiket az ő ágán is kellett a vízfestés. Ott is van szarházi bőven. De került még más is bele. Pl fegyver. Egy tekercs amire rákötsz egy nagy kondit meg egy kapcsolót skulóval együtt... csak ki kellett szedni egy csövet rá és mehet a jöhet... vagy jöhet a mehet? Mehet...
Csináltunk ilyet dinamóban is hogy ne kelljen tekercselni mert mindent összelakkoztak meg szar volt meg mindenkit árgus szemekkel néztek aki réz tekercseléshez való drótot vett.. szóval egyet sikerült azzal is leszedni akirő tudok - már megérte... sajnos maradt még mindig elég belőlük... Azután volt még benne kommunikációs eszköz is amivel beszélgetni tudtak egymással... a TV szekcióban jól lekódolva keményen, meg lehetett azzal is satellitekhez csatlakozni - szóval igazi kis kém eszköz volt. Nemrég bezárt a fuani úgy egyeztünk meg hogy akkor fogok erről majd írni.
S közben meg csendben rohad minden szét. A víz egyre fogy. A türelmem is fogy, kedvem is. Nem történik semmi amit én látnék és pozitív dolog lenne csak a szar kering és kavarog. De hát már akkor ez volt. Se apu se a család többi tagja mást nem tudott csinálni mint az egyik rohadt szarházit kijátszani a másik ellen. Mert mindegyik az aki lát ezen a szinten. Mindegyik. Nemtörődöm agylúgozott aki vigyorog és a negyedét sem érti olyan van több milliárdnyi, aki ismeri ezt belülről és tudja kik játszanak a tetején meg a közepén az szomorú ha olyan mint én mert látja a földi élet rohamosan közelgő végét is.
Ez van. Szeretni nem kell, lázadni meg már lassan késő lesz.
Csinálom amihez van még erőm meg kedvem. Ami azért lassan fogyadozik.
A cipú-s csávó is szarházi egyébként. Hazudott. Buzi és sok pénze van az öreg őt kifizette mert ugyanolyan patkány mint a többi... És szivatott mindenkit. Hát jó megtanult futni... kénytelen volt mert futnia kellett állandóan... Azért is kellett expozálnom a cipúval...
A sugó is lassan megposhad megint... az olyan vizek is lassan kiszáradnak amik mások soha...  de a szarházik csak mulatnak más dolguk nincs is. Végül is én is szivesebben lennék ilyen önfeledt ostba néha... vágyom is erre hátha úgy ki lehetne bírni valahogy nevetve... bár mostanában már tudok is nevetni ezen is... hadd pusztuljon...

Szóval a vezérlő egység megy a kukába és ez lehet hogy nem véletlen van így és lesz így apu... mondtam anno...
2017 július 12.
Semmi jó nem történt még mindig csak a rohadás folytatódik kicsit más minőségű az irányítás gyengültek és egyre lejjebb kerül a kormányzás és a stratégia bár lehet hogy csak butított dolgok ezek hogy engem becsapjanak van még komoly intel is a szervezők között... véget nem érő szeméthegylánc...

"És mi van akkor ha veletek tartok?" kérdi az idősebb férfi komolyan.
"Hát először végigcsinálod a kiképzést - és ne legyenek illúzióid, ha nem te csinálod végig úgy hogy a kiképződ és a biztosítók meg az extra szemek is elégedettek legyenek, akkor nem engedünk el élve - utána jössz velünk."
"És mit fogok csinálni?"
"Nagyjából ugyanezt csak ellenkező előjellel. Mert ha nem tiszteled az élet alapjait a tiszta levegőt, földet, vizet és a tiszta pszichikai teret akkor nem is érdemled meg. Szóval segítesz nekünk. Végül te tudod a legtöbbet saját hálózatodról és ha segítesz akkor sokkal gyorsabban fogunk haladni és eredményeket elérni mint nélküled. Csinálod a kiképzéseket. Úgy ahogy mi. Észhez téríted az embereidet, már akit lehet."
A férfi elgondolkodott. Csend volt egy pár pillanatig. A gyere kmegint menni készült dolga lett volna már rég kicsit elnyúlt ez a beszélgetés nem így tervezte. Felállt.
"Maradj még."
"Minek? Megbeszéltünk minden fontosat és nekem dolgom lenne máshol."
"Várj. Döntöttem. Veletek tartok."
A gyerek kicsit meglepődve nézett a férfira. Nem számított ilyen fejleményre és nem is értette a dolgot teljesen.
"Ezt most nem értem egészen. Fejtsd ki bővebben."
"Veletek tartok. Nézd, az utóbbi pár évben nagyon keményen meg kellett dolgoznom minden egyes napért és fillérért. Az embereid sorban megszorítottak szinte minden területen és alig győzöm pótolni az emberveszteséget." A gyerek visszaült a földre. Elgondolkodott a dolgon. Ennyire komoly lenne a helyzet? gondolkodott a dolgon. A férfi folytatta.
"Nem azért, tudom még ezt folytatni egy jó pár évig de 10-15 évet már nem húz ki a hálózatom. Addigra bele fog roppanni és egymásnak fognak esni az embereim. És egyre többen egyre többet látnak át az egész cirkuszból, szóval le fogok bukni én is. Másrészről pedig én magam se fogom bírni addig, mert már most nagyon nagy a nyomás. Csak azt mondd meg hogy miből és mennyiből fogok élni ha veletek tartok?"
"A kiképzőknek biztosítottam külön számlákat azon van egy limit háromhavi 42 ezer dollárnyi pénzt kapnak. De sokan eltartanak más kiképzőket is, mert sok helyen a világon ez rengeteg pénznek számít. Ezt tudom biztosítani."
"Az nem túl sok, de nekem elég az is - néha egyébként ma sincs még annyi pénzem se."
"Na ne mondd, tudom hogy milliárdok állnak a rendelkezésedre most is."
"Van pénzem a számlákon ,de ha ennyire jól ismered az anyagi helyzetem akkor azt is látnod kell hogy ez a pénz már el is van költve. Csak nézd meg alaposan hogy mire megy el. A hálüzatom kulcsfirgurái igen nagy igényűek és be kell tömnöm a szájukat valamivel. Sokszor még ennyi se marad arra hogy magamra költsem."
"Na ezt ne etesd meg velem, nem hiszem el."
"Na jó innen onnan tudok lecsípni de a helyzet egyre rosszabb és 10 év múlva még rosszab lesz akkorra már nem fogom tudni fenntartani ezt az egészet. Egyre nehezebb pénzt szerezni és lépten nyomon a te embereidbe botlok. Ráadásul a sajátjaim is egyre dörzsöltebbek és ravaszabbak és egyre nagyobbak az igényeik."
"Emelkedik a szint. Ez volt a célom."
Gondolkodtak egy sort.
"És hogy gondoltad a dolgot?" kérdi a gyerek.
"Hát úgy hogy akár most is belekezdhetünk." mondja a férfi.
A gyerek erre egyáltalán nem számított.
"Ez jó." mondta "Viszont akkor lesz ebből egy kis bonyodalom."
"Micsoda?" kérdi a másik félig nevetve.
"Hát az a gond hogy most már megbeszéltük hogy harcolsz a danival meg a kislánnyal és én erre fogok majd emlékezni amikor visszaérnek az emlékeztetők, meg a többiek is sokan."
A másik férfi elnevette magát hangosan.
"Hogyhogy? Nem tudod megváltoztatni hogy mire emlékezz?"
"Hát az a helyzet hogy nem. Amiben először megállapodunk mindig arra emlékszem először és csak később az egyik emléknyomról jut eszembe a következő. Meg a többiek is jórészt így működnek. És eltelik egy pár nap mire eszembe fog jutni a teljes történet hogy mit változtattunk."
"De azt mondtad ezt felveszitek nem?"
"De, de azt eldugjuk és inkább cska bizonyíték lesz és ez is csak akkor kerül majd elő amikor az emlékeztetők a megfelelő helyekre visszaérnek hogy alátámasszák a történteket és pontosan vissza tudjuk idézni mi történt egy felvételről. Mert nem is emlékszem mindig 100%-ban pontosan bár a lényeget mindig vissza tudom idézni ami igazán fontos." A férfi megint nevetett jóízűen.
"Szerintem ti nem is veszitek fel ezeket csak az emlkeitekből operáltok."
"Dehogynem. És most alighanem szólok is még több embernek hogy ők is figyeljenek mert ez fontos lesz. Sokan tudnunk kel erről." A férfi rásandított a gyerekre. Az lehunyta a szemét és fejben hívta a többieket hogy csatlakozzanak. Kicsit később már több szem és fül és felvevő technika figyelt az eseményekre a réten.
"De ha nem hiszed el hogy felvesszük akkor most vissza is játszhatok neked egy részt abból amit már most felvettünk."
"Hol? Itt a réten?"
"Itt bizony." És egy pár pillanat múlva a levegőben tisztán és érthetően lejátszódott egy részlet a beszélgetésből.
"Azt is tudom hogy egyedül jöttél ide."
"Így van."
"Ezért veszem komolyan amit mondasz mert tudom hogy most nem hazudsz. Csak nem tudom hogy mi lesz most ezzel a bunyóval... hogyan oldjuk meg."
"Megcsináljuk." mondja a férfi. A gyerek nem értette. 
"Ha most részt veszel a kiképzésen akkor ott már nem fog menni hogy ilyen showt rázzunk le nem szoktam engedni az ilyesmit bár néha még mi is megcsináljuk... de minek?"
"Ők azt hiszik hogy nem lehet őket átverni. Fontos lesz hogy bizonyítsuk nekik hogy de át lehet. És ha én csinálom meg a showt akkor teljesen össze fognak zavarodni." A gyerek kicsit elkomorodott. A férfi felvázolt neki jó tucatnyi verziót hogy hogyan lehet megkavarni a dolgokat - eben kiválóan vágott az agya ezt csinálta egész életében. De a gyerek viszolygott az ilyesmitől nem szerette, noha ő maga volt ebben a legjobb mind között. megforgatta ezeket a nagymestereket is jó párszor ő maga is ilyen színjátékokkal.
"Ezzel megint az a gond hogy ezekre meg azért nem fogok pontosan emléekzni, mert utálom az ilyesmit és az agyam ledobja magáról nem szeretek ezekre emlékezni. Jobban kedvelem az egyenes utat. És ezt nagyon alaposan át kell gondolni mert lehet belőle hatalmas kavarodás ami sok hullával is járhat ha elszabadul a pokol."
"De én akkor ott leszek. Ezt mondtad visszamegyek és én magam is fogatom majd őket a helyes irányba. Akkor tudni fogom hogy ki hol áll és mi jár a fejében nem?"
"De. És mi lesz a küzdelemmel?"
"Megcsináljuk még előtte. Azt meg is akarom csinálni, mert tudni akarom hogy úgy van-e ahogy mondom. meg akarok küzdeni a danival is meg a kislánnyal is."
"Még nincsenek készen. Kell még legalább egy-két év nekik."
"Jól van. Addig maradjon így ahogy van annyit még kibírok. Megküzdünk utána a Dani kiképez és beállok közétek és megfordítjuk akit lehet."
"Ne a danihoz menj."
"Hát kihez?"
"A kislányhoz."
"Miért? Akkor mindenféle disznóságok fognak járni a fejemben."
"Nem fognak. Le foglak kapcsolni arra az időre a rendszerről és a feladatok olyanok hogy teljes figyelmet igényelnek. És azért ne a daihoz menj, mert a dani is ebben a szarrakásban nőtt fel a kislány meg nem. Rá vigyáztunk hogy ne kerüljön a kezeitek közé soha. Fertőzetlen elme, legalábbis a körülményekhez képest az, csak az iskolarendszer fertőzte meg valamennyire de azzal meg dolgozik maga is. Tudja."
...
A világ több pontján a többiek meg a satelliteken kersztül csodálták az eseménysort. Nem várt fordulat. A kommunikációs rendszer izzott. Egyre többen kapcsolódtak a réten zajló események megfigyelésébe.
"Ez hihetetlen. El lehet hinni bármit ennek a szarházinak abból amit most mond?" kérdi valaki.
"Tényleg egyedül ment oda és senkinek se szólt. ilyet soha se csinált korábban. Szerintem már előtte eldöntötte hogy átáll a mi oldalunkra, csak nem volt teljesen biztos a dolgában. Amikor a peti megmutatta neki pár triggerét meg elsorolta az agyarországi irányítóit akkor látszott rajta hogy az feltette az i-re a pontot. A gyereknek fel se tűnt."
"Persze mert már rég a ...-n kellene lennie. Az is legalább ilyen fontos."
"De azért megéri maradni. Ez ők is tudják. Ők is figyelnek. Így nyerünk 10-15 évet. És sok embert tudunk vele észhez téríteni, ha tényleg megcsinálja amit mond."
---
Miközben a gyerek elment a szigetet felfedezni pihenésképpen az apja és az öreg tovább nyomoztak az események után.
"Te sokkal jobb így dolgozni." - mondja az öreg
"Jobb ám hogy jobb. Mi már így csinálunk mindent évek óta."
"Itt egy pár óra alatt kiderítettük hogy hol csúsztunk el az elmúlt 20 éveben."
"Ezt is a gyerek hozta. Ő találta ki."
"Te figyelj Jani, amikor próbáltam a triggert nem volt akkora ereje rajtad. Miért?"
"Nem hát. Azért mert a gyereket megpróbálta a mészáros elintézi egy ilyen triggerrel és kiderült hogy a program kivédi ezt is. Nem működik. Meg tudjuk védei magunkat."
"Várjunk csak a mészáros meg akarta ölni a pétert egy ilyen triggerrel? Erről én miért nem tudok?"
"Azért mert a péter fel akarta használni még a mészárost később és mondta hogy ne szóljunk mert akkor megölöd."
"Hát abban biztos lehetsz hogy megnyuvasztottam volna."
"Akkor szerzett magának egy saját orvost. A gyerek összetörte a csonjait. Megismételtette vele a triggert vagy háromszor. Akkor nem értettem miért csinálja, de amikor feloldottad az enyémet akkor rájöttem."
"Hát így lehet feloldani. Megmutatod és megismétled a másikban tudatosul és ennyi nincs többé hatása."
"Felvettük ám volt kamera. Megnézheted."
"Jó látni akarom. De várj csak. Én ki is akartam nyomozni hogy mi volt a mészárossal, mert akkor eltűnt egy időre. És rá is jöttem hogy lábadozik, de nem tudtam hogy miért és mi történt."
"Te Jani. Ezek le tudták állítani a nyomozásaimat."
"Le."
"Akkor azért nem is derült ki hogy kit tudott az uralma alá vonni a bady, mert azt is leállította. Rájöttünk emlékszel és akkor is nyomozni kezdtünk de az is elsikkadt."
"Igen. Azért találtuk ki hogy a nyulag bagzanak, hogy emlékezzünk a bagdyra. Rájöttünk hogy ő is csinálta."
...
"De akkor ti ki is vontátok magatokat többször is a feladatok alól."
A gyerek közben visszaért. "Találtam mangót. kértek?"
"Így van. Volt amit nem csináltunk meg."
"De miért?"
"Mert rájöttünk hogy te is a saját zsebedet akartad tömni. Elkezdtük felidézni hogy milyen feladatokat adtál és csak azt csináltuk meg ami fontos volt. A többit meg bojkottáltuk."
"De hogyan csináltátok?"
"Hát leültünk így és megbeszéltük. Kiderült mindig hogy mi van. Amikor meg nem jöttünk rá akkor Abból tudtuk hogy az fontos feladat. A gyerek sokat segített. Meg le is ellenőrizte sokszor hogy jól tudjuk-e és hogy ne bukjon meg a feladat olyankor csak jelezte hogy az oké mehet. Ami meg olyan volt azt hagytuk, mint pl a .... ügyet is..." sajndított apu az öregre kicsit gonoszan.
"Hát azon buktam is jó pár száz milliót..." mondta az öreg.
"Azért mert azt a saját zsebedre csináltad. Egyértelmű volt."
"De hogyan tudtátok feltörni a hipnózisomat?"
"Hát úgy hogy visszaéltél a bizalmunkkal. Emlékszel? A jó hipnózis a bizalomra alapul. Megbeszéltük hogy hipnotizálhatsz bennünket, hogy te irányíts, mert kellett egy jó irányító. Te pedig visszaéltél a vége felé ezzel. Eltörted a bizalmi alapot. Ezért. A gyerek így magyarázta és igaza is van. Ez így működik."
Az öreg egy kicsit sértődötten hallgatott.
...
Hexenküche
"Ja emlékszem arra a projektre, hát én finanszíroztam meg."
"De az mi volt? Mi akartatok csinálni?"
"Egy jó számítógépes játékot. Nagyon tetszett az ötlet. Erőszakmentes kalandjáték ami logikát és emberséget tanít. Én is szerettem volna egy ilyen játékot a piacra meg a gyerek is."
"De hogy került oda a bagdy?"
...
"De küldtem ám oda egy pár srácot hogy segítsenek neked. Azokkal mi lett? Nem segítettek?"
"Hát az a helyzet hogy volt egy pár ember akikkel végül tudtam pár értelmes szót váltani és sikerült őket felébresztenem, de akkor meg mindig kirúgták őket és jöttek újak akik még őrültebben szadiztak minden lehetséges pszichikai kínzással. Ja de... figyelj csak azokat meg kellene keresni, mert azokkal összeszedtem egy csomó módszert amit ez a nő használt. Az egyik ki is derítette hogy tényleg nő, mert sok áttételen keresztül dolgozott. Soha nem jelent meg személyesen előttem nem láttam. De az egyik srá amikor kipakoltatták jelzett hogy igazam van, nő. Meg az egyik aki ottmaradt miután leléceltem, annak adtam egy pár figurát amit előre megrajzoltam mert nem volt olyan jó grafikában, egy programozó srác ő figylet hogy mi történik utána hogy elmentem. Azok szerintem össze is tudank szedni egy csomó mindent amit én akkor a profiljába összeszedtem a munkamódszereiről. Meg szerintem lesz ott más is. Azokat keresd meg mind."
"Jó."
---
Szóval megoldottam, hogy bármilyen teleptaikus kapcsolatot azonnal érzékeljen a rendszerem és rögzíteni is tudjam mi történik. De később rádöbbentem hogy ez hatalmas dolog és nem csak a telepata kapcsolódásokat tudom monitorozni hanem mindenféle kepcsolódást, mert arra is rájöttem hogy egy sima beszélgetés során is aktíválódnak ezek az erőterek. Még akkor is ha technikán kersztül pl mobiltelefonon beszélget két ember. Gyakorlatilag mindent be tudtam kapcsolni a rendszerembe.
Ez azért volt fontos, mert természetes alapon működő telepátia nem csak olyanoknál alakulhat ki akik jó emberek. Azok akik a természet rendje szerint élnek és ilyen természetes úton felderül a képességük általában jó emberek sőt azért derül ki és válik elérhetővé a tudatos használat mert a teremtő törvényei szerint működnek és ha nem akkor el is vesztik a képességük feletti kontrollt.
Ezért találták ki az elmeháborodott hatalommániákusok, hogy akkor ők kiderítik hogyan lehet ilyet csinálni.
Kínzás, trükkök, tréning mindent kipróbáltak és értek is el ereményeket.
Ezért vannak olyanok akik képesek természetes alapon dolgozni és mégis szarházik. De nem olyan jók.
Ezért kellett a szarháziknak a mesterséges technikai alapú rendszer olyan nagyon. most emezekhez menekülnek, de nem csak őket tudtam bekapcsolni az ellenőrzés és rögzítés rendszerébe hanem a technikusaikat és az összeset. Gyakorlatilag mindenkit. A gond mindössze az hogy ez embertelen mennyiségű adat. Ezért a feldolgozásnál csak akkor kerül feldolgozásra amikor a fő játékosok fókuszba kerülnek valamelyik csoport révén. Olyankor ők le tudják hívni a megfigyelések eredményeit. Legalábbis az egyesek.

"Te gyerek ha egy karolás lesz a verdámon újra fényeztetem veled..."
"No és hogy megy?"
"Ugyanolyan simán mint az enyém."
"Hát csodálod, ugyanaz az erő hajtja..." 
...
"Bár én tudnék ennyire hinni benne mint te..."
...
"Te hogyhogy beenged téged a verdám?"
"Úgy látszik mégse vagyok annyira rossz ember mint ahogy te gondolod."
...
"Rólam is össze vissza hazudoztak ám csakúgy mint rólad. A kísérletek meg a többi és te meg is ettél egy csomó ilyet."
"De a ....-t te csináltad!"
"Nem."
"De te voltál. Leellenőriztam és te finanszíroztad és te adtad ki a parancsokat is..."
"Igaz." tette hozzá megint lehunyt szemmel az öreg az adatokat ellenőrizve. Bár akkor nem volt a gyerek biztos benne hogy csak azért hunyta le a szemét, csak reménykedett benne. De az öregben semmiféle lelkiismeret nem dolgozott.

Rét rét virágos rét...
És abban a pillanatban moszkvától langhly-ig az összes pozícióban lévő műhold és megfigyelő egység a két férfi beszélgetését figyelte... égtek a vonalak a pentagonban és németországban franciaországban kb egy perc sem telt el mikor már mindenki figyelt.
...
"A Bagdy meg a Mészáros egy csapat?" kérdi az idősebb.
"Igen. Apa, Anya és a kislányuk a Gömzsik." Az idősebb elképedve nézett maga elé.
"De ezek együtt kúrnak." mondta nevetve az idősebb és rögtön utána elkomorodott.
"Tudom. Mit változtat ez a helyzeten?"
"Hát annyit hogy ha a bagdy meg a mészáros együtt vannak akkor még 10 évig se fogom tudni ezt tovább csinálni."
"Csináltál valamit együtt a bagdyval?"
"Hát megkeresett hogy ő ki akarja nyírni a mészárost. Csak azt nem értem hogy tudott így átverni, én régóta csinálom ezt és megismerem ha valaki őszinte. Nem fér a fejembe hogy csinálta."
"Hát úgy hogy nem hazudott." nézett rá a gyerek összehúzott szemmel. Az idősebb ránézett és megint elnevette magát.
"Te én azt gondoltam, hogy én vagyok a világon a legbetegebb elme és nincs nálam rosszabb, de ezek még nálam is betegebbek."
"Azok. A mészáros apja forralta ki még annak idején a 60-as években azt a tervet hogy a vízhiányból lesznek multi trilliárdosok és a világ urai. Ezek ketten összefogtak, de amint megöltek minden lehetséges ellenlábast egymást is megölik. Nem hazudott. Őszintén ki akarja nyírni a lánya apját."
"Hahahaha..." nevetett az idősebb.
...
"És mi lesz ha nem fizetsz nekik?"
"Háború. Egymásnak esnek. És akkor abból ti sem fogtok ki maradni. És akkora lesz hogy már nem lehet majd titokban levezényelni. Nyílt háború lesz."
"Mi meg tudjuk védeni magunkat."
"De sok civil áldozat is lesz."
"Civil? Hol van itt bárhol civil ma?" kérdi a gyerek
"Hát vannak még."
"Hol? Baján?"
"Baján nincs. De van még olyan hely a világban ahol vannak."
"Hol?"
"Hát nem emlékszem, de voltam egy kis tengerparti faluban ahol az emberek még teljesen egyszerűen és békében élnek."
"Hol van ez?" kérdezte a gyerek kicsit már jókedvű gyanakvással.
"Nem emlékszem."
"Véded őket?"
"Nem. Egyszerűen csak nem emlékszem." az idősebben látszott hogy hazudik.
"Véded őket. - jelentette ki a gyerek magabizotsan - Egy kis tegerparti falu ahol a halász hallal kínál ingyen mert van elég, ahol finom a koszt a vendéglőben és nincs fosztogatás, meg lopás, reklám, és az összes agylúgozó szar amit máshol bevet az összes csoport kivétel nélkül."
A másik rémülten nézett a gyerekre. Az folytatta.
"Véded őket. Nem szégyen az."
"Ismered a falut?"
"Az a falu teljes egészében a mieinkből áll. Azok mi vagyunk Matyi. Mi így élünk. Ott nincs egy ember aki ne csinálta volna végig csont nélkül a kiképzésemet. Hát én küldtelek oda nem emlékszel?"
"Tényleg. De miért küldtél oda. Tönkre fogják azt is tenni."
"Azért hogy lásd mit akarok megvalósítani."
"Hát Péter ha ezt akarod megcsinálni akkor még egy okkal több hogy veletek tartsak." Egy pár pillanatig megint csend volt. Hallgattak mind a ketten.
"De nem morgolódtak hogy odamegyek? Tudták hogy ki vagyok?"
"Tudták persze hogy tudták. Szóltam nekik."
"És nem tiltakoztak hogy ne tegyem be oda a lábamat se?"
"Volt egy öreg ember aki még emlékezett hogy a ...-k mit műveltek ott milyen mészárlást végeztek - akiket te képeztél ki - de amikor elmentél mellettünk ő is elhallgatott és utána rálegyintett: Hogy hát végül is ő is egy ember és ki tudja talán a csoda is megtörténhet." Mosolygott a gyerek huncutkásan.
"Te is ott voltál?" Nézett nagyot az idősebb. Próbálta felidézni a pillanatot.
"Macskaköves lejtős uta, egy öreg ember biciklit tolt felfelé te meg épp akor érkeztél meg a kis hátizsákoddal mentél le a vendéglő felé."
"Az te voltál az öreg ember mellett?" csodálkozott az idősebb. "Éreztem hogy valaki figyel de nem éreztem semmi veszélyt."
"Mert nem volt. Mi vigyáztunk rád akkor." Az idősebb férfi elkomorodott. Kis csend után sóhajjal törte meg a csendet.
"Akkor nagyon magam alatt voltam és komolyan fontolgattam hogy kinyírom magam és nem csinálom ezt tovább."
"Tudom." mondta a gyerek. "Azért küldtelek oda."

Fent voltam a világűrben. Épp a gravitációs távcsővel párhuzamosan folytatott néhány ötletemet próbáltam ki és teszteltem. Kerestem pár célpontot - emberit - akikről tudtam pár dolgot, hogy kiderüljön mit látok és mit mutat az új eljárás amit felfedeztem. Apu és egy másik ember épp megbeszéltek valamit. Rájuk fókuszáltam. Megkértem őket pár dologra. pl hogy az egyikük mondjon el egy verset a másiknak. Hogy figyeljenek és ne figyeljenek egymásra. Azután rájöttem hogy nem jó ha én irányítgatom őket hanem jobb ha csak úgy figyelek és a természet megmutatja amit meg akar mutatni nekem. Azután csak figyeltem. Két öreg kőkorszaki szaki épp megbeszélést tartottak azon a titkos módon amikor hangosan beszélgettek valamiről és titokban a mesterséges telepata rendszeren meg egy egészen más dologról. Ahogy figyeltem rájuk lenyűgözött hogy mennyire ügyesen forgatják a hangos és a hangtalan beszélgetés fonalát úgy hogy aki hallja a hangosat az csak egy bugyuta unintelligens alkesz történetet hall, miközben a világ nagy dolgairól esik szó titokban.
Közben komoly dolgok történtek az űrbéli állomás monitorján. Amit láttam teljesen lenyűgözött. Egy vizuális minta megmutatta nekem hogy mikor milyen kapcsolódások jöttek létre a beszélgetések során. Mutatta egy látható vizuális minta hogy honnan hová mikor milyen erők mozognak. Egyenlőre nem voltam tisztában azzal hogy mit is látok pontosan. De tudtam hogy nagyon nagy dologra bukkantam.
Egyszer sak észrevettem egy tengerparti kis falut ahol egy ember különösen nagy fényességet árasztott maga körül. Olyan volt a többihez képest, mintha egy villanyégőt hasonlítanék egy atombomba villanásához. Tudtam hogy azzal az emberrel beszélnem kell. Ráközelítettem a satellit kameráival és meghatároztam a helyét. Egy pillanatig sem haboztam.
---
"Nézd. Ezt a falut én takarítottam ki. És én tartok rendet benne."
"Hogyan?"
"Ház megöltem mindenkit aki azokat az értékeket egészen pontosan azokat a rohasztó értékrendeket gyakorolta és nem engedek be senkit aki ilyen. Megtanítottam őket harcolni és rendet tartani. Nem hazudok neke. Én is ugyanúgy benne voltam ebben. Én is elmerültem a szex a drogok és a hatalom a felelősség nélküli szabad élet mocsarában ugyanúgy mint ők. Csak én kiszálltam. Létrehoztam ezt a helyet és azóta itt élek."
"Akkor ismered őket nagyjából, az öreget meg a többit..."
"Ismerem hát. Az öreg néha fel is keres ezzel azzal hogy segítsek neki. És ismerem a többit is igen. Apádat is."
"Ismered apámat?"
"Igen."
"De hogy lehet hogy mindenki hallgatott arról hogy egyáltalán létezel? Ezt nem értem."
"Nézd Péter ők ebben élnek és én kiszálltam. Ők rabjai ennek a maskarabálnak - ahogy te fogalmaztál - és erről soha nem is fognak lemondani. Ebből élnek és ezen kersztül szabadok. Megmenekülnek az általuk fenntartott struktúrák elmebeteg őrületétől. Én kiszálltam belőle és nem veszek részt többé benne."
"De mi történt miért szálltál ki?"
"Mert én is látom hogy ez hová vezet. És egyébként ők is tudják hogy hová vezet. Oda amit mondtál. A földi élet pusztulásához. Elegem lett. Úgy döntöttem nem eszek részt benne."
"Ezért hoztál létre egy ilyen kis szigetet ebben a mocsoktengerben."
"Így van."
"De akkor ez is el fog pusztulni."
"Igen. Nézd ez a falu addig lesz ilyen békés amíg én élek. Abban a pillanatban hogy én meghalok ezek rá fognak telepedni és szépen a ravasz felforgatóikkal megvalósítják ugyanazt a szemetet itt is amit mindenhol."
Egy darabig cska ballagtak egymás mellett.
"Én nem tudok e mellett elmenni. Szeretném megváltoztatni és jó lenne még úgy megoldani hogy még én is élvezhessek valami ilyesmit."
"Igen. Nekem is voltak ilyen gondolataim, de akkor mindegyik összefog ellened. Még az öreg is megpróbál majd megölni. És apád is."
"Úgy gondolod hogy apám is el akarná majd veni az életemet ha valamilyen sikerrel járnék és le tudnám állítani ezt a mocsoktengert vagy legalább expozálni?"
"Hát ha nem is közvetlenül de részt venne benne valamilyen módon. Ő is ugyanolyan rabja ennek mint az öreg és a többi."
Hallgattak. Szomorú a valóság nagyon szomorú.
"Én amíg látok reményt arra hogy valamit tegyek megteszem."
"És jól is van ez így."
"De szükségem van segítségre. A természet úgy rendelte hogy nem tudok egyedül dolgozni."
"Rendben van.. Segítek."
...
"Péter ha nem építed meg a biztosítékot magad számára akkor meg fognak ölni és minden amit csináltál kárba vész. És az öreg biztosítékát is fel kell derítened és semlegesítened kell. Ha nem teszed meg ő lesz a végén a legnagyobb ellenséged."
Igaza volt. Ezért meg is csináltam amit mondott.

"De Jani... te hogy került oda a Bagdy?" kérdezte az öreg
"Hát te küldted oda, hogy kondícionálja a gyereket." - mondja apám.
---
Csodálkoztam hogy hogyan lehetséges hogy az öreg embereit egy pár óra leforgása alatt kondícionálni tudja ez a nő ráadásul úgy hogy robotként támadnak engem, és különféle ravasz őrült dolgokkal etetik meg őket hogy mit próbálok én ott programozni és hogy valami szörnyű extrém pusztító potenciált próbálok létrehozni - miközben egy számítógépes játékot akartam csinálni amiben nem ömlik a vér és kalandos szerepjátékként varázslóként vagy boszorkaként főzeteket kell főzni amivel meg lehet gyógyítani a gólyát ami ezért ad egy csodanádszálat amiből olyan sípot lehet faragni amivel ki lehet csalni az aranyszárnyú kismadarat és szóba is áll veled és elmondja hogy hol találod meg a nem tudom milyen gyógynövényt amiből ezt és ezt lehet főzni és mindenzt úgy hogy a végén a döntéseid függvényében királylánnyá változol és megtalálod a helyed valahol ahol boldogan élhetsz...
És mi lett belőle? Semmi. És azért nem lett semmi se belőle mert az öreg se akarta hogy legyen. Csak rám uszította a bagdyt és a kezébe adott egy csomó embert hogy velük tegye ezt, miközben engem azzal hitegetett, hogy ő segít... pont úgy mint az összes többi embere. Segítenek, de úgy hogy közben mind ott rúgott belém ahol csak tudott. És valahogy mindig úgy alakult hogy én mindig rosszul jöjjek ki az egészből.
De ez a csoport volt az amelyik még valamilyen mértékben törődött a természet értékeivel.
Igaz hogy pl bokor gyuri (bush) is az olajbevételekből finanszírozott sok mindent, és az atomerőművekből is ők húztak hasznot, meg a többi rohadt nagy égből is, de azért jól eljátszották a nagy segítőt akik ugyanazért dolgoznak mint én. Hát nem. Közel sem. De ezt már akkor is láttam egészen jól még akkor is ha mindig megetettek miután jól beletapostak a sárba és nagy kegyesen felsegítettek belőle.
A trónon az öreg ült, de őt megválasztották a többiek. Úgy működtek ők is mint egy nagy család. És ez ma is így megy.
Ezért sok biztosítékot építettem. Többet mint kellett volna.
Pl a bank is le fog állni. A mi bankunk. A dobozaim is. Erre azért van szükség mert belekényelmesedtek a biztonságba és a szabad élet és biztonságos élet kényelmébe. Emelték a szintet ez igaz, apu tett is igen sok mindent azért hogy ne legyen katasztrófa, de kalakult egy a látható struktúrán kívüli titkos szerkezet, ahol a gyerekek egészségesen fejlődhettek kibonthatták a képességeiket - de csak titokban úgy hogy a látható struktúrákban semmi de semmi nem változott meg. Minden ment és ma is megy tovább.

Ja a csigabigás vidómat akkor csináltam amikor a hold projekten dolgoztunk. Kellett valami ami jól bírta a hőt. Rájöttem hogy a kagylóhéj igen jól bírja a hőt. Amikor ezt megmutattam valaki helyeselt, hogy igen ez jó, de ... és felemelt egy kagylóhéj darabot és eltörte két ujjával... "Ezt ha megüti egy milliméter átmérőjű kis meteordarab akkor úgy robban szét mintha ott se lenne."
"Igen. De ez jó kiindulópont. Meg kell tudnom mindent arról hogy a csigák mit esznek mi történik a testükben és hogyan keletkezik a kagylóhéj. kiidnulásnak jó."
Akkor derítettem fel olyan pontosan hogy mit esznek a csigák. Ebből csináltuk a csempét az űrhajó aljára.
"De miért kell ezt titkosítani?" méltatlankodtam...
"Azért hogy ha valaki a szarházik közül még úgy gondolná hogy el is megy innen vissza már ne tudjon jönni..." s nevettek.
---
Közben a réten folytatódott a jelent egyre másra jutnak eszembe a részletek.
"Te tudo mit pénzek mozognak hogy kiderítsék mi van a dobozaidban?"
"Nem. De sejtem."
"A dobozaid miatt már több ember meghalt mint a pénz miatt az elmúlt 5-10 évben."
"De azok nem a dobozaim miatt haltak meg hanem azok ölték meg őket akik ölnénak az információért."
"De tudod hogy az öreg is megmozgatott minden szálat hogy kiderítse mi van benne?"
"Tudom. Annak ellenére, hogy kértem hogy ne nyomozon."
"Szerinted kitalálta?"
"Szerinted akkor most mi itt beszélgetnénk?" mosolyogtam az idősebbre. Az rázta a fejét jókedvűen.
"Biztos hogy nem."
"Végigkérdezte az összes emberét mélyhipnózis meg ilyesmi, és a többieket is megmozgatta. Mindent végigzongorázott."
"Az a helyzet hogy az öreg azt hiszi ő a legokosabb a földön és úgy gondolja hogy amire én rájövök arra ő is rá tud jönni. Csak a helyzet az hogy ez nem fedi a valóságot. És bíztam benne hogy a tudással kapsolatban is érvényesek a természet törvényei. Csak olyan férhet hozzá bizonyos tudnivalókhoz aki arra érdemes vagy a teremt intelligencia valamilyen feladat elvégzéséhez ezt szükségesnek tartja. Úgy voltam vele ha ki tudja deríteni akkor úgyis mindegy."
"De apád is sumákol sok mindenben."
"Ezért kötöttem meg a kezét nagyon sok tekintetben. Sok automatizmust építettem fel amit nem tud megkerülni és ha nem csinálja meg akkor annak súlyos következménei vannak azonnal."
"Nem bíztál meg benne sem."
"Nem. Az elején nem is lehetett még annyira se mint most."
---
"Szerintem te egy bárd vagy."
"Nem vagyok én bárd peti cska egy ügyes kardforgató. Apámnak volt ez az ideálja hogy én egy bárd vagyok, de nem volt igaza."
"Miért gondolta ezt?"
"Mert valami cigányasszony megjósolta neki hogy neki a fia egy bárd lesz."
"De szerintem te bárd vagy, csak a neveltetésed körülményei, a rossz döntéseid és a körülmények megfosztottak attól hogy a képességed birtokába kerülj. De ezt majd a kiképzés megmutatja."
"Apropó majd megmutatom az apámat is. Ne lepődj meg azon hogy milyen fiatal. 14 évesen baszott a világra. Van egy kedvenc mondása majd arról fogod megismerni. Azt szokta mondogatni hogy még a lemenő napnak is van ereje."
"Hát az nem jó akkor azt fogom gondoni hogy ez is valami utcaszínházas támadás... és ő egy szaraházi..."
"Hát azt jól fogod gondolni, mert az!"
---
"Jó. De nem hozád megyek a kiképzésen."
"Miért?" kérdezte a gyerek kicsit meglepődve
"Azért mert te is ugyanebben a szartengerben nőttél fel mint én." nevettek...
---
A bagdy ezt a dolgot nem tudta volna egyedül véghez vinni. Segített neki valaki. És az a valaki az Öreg volt.
---
Az öreg küldte hogy pórbálja meg ő hátha, mert ő már mindent megpróbált és neki nem sikerült.
A kiképzést se mcsinált avégig hazudott.
...
"Te Peti ilyet még senki se tudott csinálni mint ez az ember. Tisztán látszik hogy hazudik és mégis eljutott a kiképzés kb három negyedéig. Ez elképesztő. Mi a véleményed?"
 "Nos az a helyzet hogy különleges szellemi képességei vannak ehhez semmi kétség nem fér, és pontosan ezért nem véletlen hogy Ő ennek a szarrakásnak a feje."
"Mit csináljunk? Ha most megöljük őt nagyon nehéz lenne pótolni és ha kiderül a hiánya akkor egymásnak esnek az alvezérek és kitör a háború."
"Nem. Nem. Egyenlőre nem öljük meg. Még kell. Őt meg nem is tudnánk senkivel sem pótolni. Olyan embert egyikőtök se fog találni aki be tudna ugrani a helyére. Még én se tudnám ezt a dolgot megoldani nem azért mert nem lennék rá képes hanem azért mert nem lennék rá képes lelkileg."
"Akkor?"
"Megszivatjuk." mosolyodott el a gyerek "Rohadtul mocskos módon megszivatjuk méghozzá azzal a módszerrel amit ő szokott használni olyan hihetetlen ügyességgel és ravaszsággal. Nem hazudok majd neki, de mégis hazudni fogok. Hívjátok ide a harcsa lányt még elleszek vele egy pár napig majd addig kitalálom hogyan legyen."
...
Az öreg felfutott egy majdnem függőleges sziklafalon egyenesen fel a tetejéig. Fizikailag lehetetlen mutatvány volt. A gyerek lemaradt és a fal aljánál helybenfutást gyakorolt. Fent megállt és lenézett a gyerekre kifejezéstelen arccal. Az visszanézett.
"Na ezt csináld utánam te rohadék."
A  gyerek nem szólt egy szót sem csak mosolygott maj dvisszafordult és közepes tempóval felszaladt a szikla mellett álló kissé már kiszáradt fenyőfa ágain. A végén könnyed ugrással egy szaltóval érkezett az öreg mellé.
Ott összenevettek.
"Szerinted ez mi?" kérdi az öreg
"Szerintem mi erősítjük egymás képességeit." nézett a gyerek rá őszintén és mosolygósan.
"De mégis mi lehet a magyarázata?"
"Az én fejemben ez a jelenség a levitáció témakörébe tartozik, de szerintem ez összefügg sok minden mással is. A gravitáció, a psziché ereje, a bolygók mozgása és egymáshoz való viszonya az ember és a bolygó egymáshoz való viszonya stb."
"De hogy érzed?" kérdi a gyerek kérdőn és őszinte kíváncsisággal.
"Ez megvan. Itt a vége." Nézett vissza az öreg magabiztosan...
...
"Azt fogom mondani neki hogy szerintem mi erősítjük egymás képességeit. például."
"De Peti ez nem igaz. Pont hogy téged is elkedvtelenít és csak félgőzzel csinálod mint máskor ezt észre fogja venni."
"Nem. Úgy értem majd hogy a mi alatt bennünket értem majd. Rólunk fogok beszélni. A csapatról." mindenki nevetett...
"Ez nagyon rohadék húzás..." mondja a harcsa lány
"Miért hát ő is ezt csinálja állandóan velünk. Most visszakapja méghozzá úgy hogy hatalams pofon lesz a végén."
Nevettek.
"Ha megeszi utána elengedjük és rátapadtok de úgy hogy ne érzékeljen semmit se. VAlószínűleg ki fog képezni egy csomó embert majd azonnal ráküldi valakire őket. Azokra az emberekre akiket kiképez azokra is rá kell szállnunk hogy hová mennek és mi a céljuk. Utána begyűjtjük őket és az öreg képébe fogom vágni a boncolási jegyzőkönyveket a hullájukról. Utána ezeket a hullákat is elküldöm a többinek akiket etet hogy ő most már milyen kurva jó hogy lássák mit ér a kiképzése."
---
Kis tengerparti falu. Napsütés, szél.
"Kiképeztük az öreget." mondja a gyerek
"És?" kérdi az idősebb férfi
"Hazudott. Egy rakás szar. Volt valami mozgás azóta?"
"Hát volt." A gyerek felkapta a fejét.
"Mi történt?"
"Jött egy pár ember."
"De mit akartak?"
"Gyilkolni."
"És mi lett velük?"
"Meghaltak."
"Maradtak hullák? Felboncolnám őket és megpróbálom visszafejteni kik küldték."
"Jól van. Felboncoltuk mi őket csináltunk rendes jegyzőkönyvet is róluk. Fotók meg ahogy kell."
"Ezt is meg tudják oldani a falubeliek?"
"Péter én is megtanítok nekik mindent amit csak tudok. Nem te vagy az egyetlen aki így gondolkodik és szereti ha értelmes ember ilények veszik körül..." nevettek.

Az öreg belépett a kis szobába ketten az ablak felőli asztal tetejére támaszkodtak ketten az ajtó mellett foglaltak helyet félig állva félig ülve. Mindenki laza semmi feszültség. A gyerek kérte az öreget hogy üljön le.
"Na miről akartál velem beszélni?" kérdi az öreg lehuppanva a bőrborítású szófára.
"Egy pillanat." a gyereknek valaki átadott egy dossziét. A gyerek kinyitotta és kivett belőle egy pár fotót. Hullák fotóit. Sorban az öreg elé rakta az asztalra őket. Maszk nélküli fotók voltak de a képek felső szélére egy pár jól ismert karakterüknek a fotója is fel lett montírozva kis méretben hogy odaférjen legalább 10. A gyerek gondosan ügyelt rá hogy olyanok is ott legynek amikről tudta hogy az öreg felismeri őket. Miközben az asztalra rakta a képeket folyamatosan az öreg arcát fürkészte és le sem vette a szemét róluk.
A szobában több kamera is rögzítette az eseményeket több szögből sőt az öreg pulzusát és szívverését, a légzés ritmusát és az agyműködését is külön jól beállított műszerek figyelték.
Az öreg rezzenéstelen arccal nézte a képeket sorban akkurátusan. Semmi nem árulta el hogy bármi belső folyamat elindult volna benne.
Amikor a gyerek befejezte a kirakodót és az asztal teli volt hullák fotóival felnézett.
"Miről akartál velem beszélni? Mik ezek?"
"Ezek hullák." mondja a gyerek majd tovább hallgatott a teremben érezhetően megállt a levegő és valami súlyos telepedett közéjük valami nehéz.
A gyerek folytatta. Ezeket az embereket te képezted ki mind nem olyan régen. Az a falu ahová elküldted őket hogy öljenek meg valakit, a MI valunk. MI védjük. A ti kiképzésetek ennyit ér a mienkkel szemben amit itt az asztalon látsz. Egy rakás szartömeget. Mert te magad is egy nagy szardarab vagy." vágta az öreg fejéhez iszonyú éllel a hangjában a gyerek a véleményét.
Az öreg felugrott a szófáról azzal hogy:
"No jó én ezt nem hallgatom tovább." A két srác az ajtó felől hirtelen felállt úgy a többi is és lesütött fejjel vészjóslóan elállták az öreg elől az utat. Mindenki állt érezni lehetett a helyzet súlyosságát.
A gyerek tovább ült az öreggel szemben de az idegeivel küzdött hogy ne tépje szét ezt a rohadt szarházit azonnal. Nagyon kemény feszültséggel a hanjában félig halkan sziszegte az öregnek
"Tedd le a szaros segged, mert ha nem teszed eltöröm mindkét kezed és mindkét karod és odaadlak a mészáros cimborádnak, megnézzük mekkora jó barátod neked. És mihez kezd a helyzettel." Az öreg még tovább állt egy pár másodpercig a lehetőségein gondolkodott. A dani állt rögtön közötte és az ajtó között a másik kettő pedig az ablak felől biztosított középen a gyerek. Minden menekülő útvonalat elzártak előle. A szoba falai betonból voltak jó vastag betonból amit nem tudott áttörni. A küzdelem lehetőségét hamar elvetette. Semmi esélye sem volt velük szemben. Csak a gyerek kivégezte volna egyedül, a többivel együtt pedig semmi esélye sem volt. Nulla. Visszahuppant hát a díványra. De az arcán továbbra se látszott semmilyen érzelem vagy érzés. Mintha kőből lett volna.
"Hazudtál a kiképzésen és hazudtál végig. Te magad adtál a mészáronak egy triggert hogy öljön meg amikor már teljesen kifogytál az ötletekből hogy mihez kezdj velem. Az a helyzet hogy elég volt belőled és a kis csapatodból. Semlegesítettem a biztosítékodat semmit se tudsz kezdeni vele. És kiváltottam mindegyik embered feladatát. Innentől egy lehetőséged lesz az életben maradásra: ha azon dolgozol amin mi. Ha nem teszed akkor megöllek téged és az összes kis haverodat a mészárostól a bagdyn keresztül mindet. és ezeket a hullákat el fogom küldeni a csapataidnak hogy tudják mennyit ér a kiképzésed." A gyerek felállt és otthagyta a kifejezéstelen arcú embert. Mind otthagyták.
---
Rét rét virágos rét.
"Ugyan már most azt tervezgeted hogy végigsinálod a kiképzést és utána visszajössz ennek a szartengernek a királyaként azzal hogy egyesíted a széttördelt csapatodat, mert elmondtam hogy a mészáros ugyanezt csinálta a saját csapatával is és úgy egységes táborral lenne esélyed ellene..."
...
"Miről beszélnek ezek?"
"Bárdnak hívják a hun hagyomány szerint azokat akik olyan extrém ütőerővel rendlkeznek mint a gyerek. De most inkább figyelj. Alighanem most dől el a föld sorsa, de legalábbis egy fordulóponthoz értünk."
"Miért? Ki ez az ember?"
"A Matyi? A matyinak van a földön a harmadik legnagyobb hálózata. Az öreg és a mészáros után."
...
"Mit tudsz a többiek helyzetéről?"
"Miért őket nem derítetted fel?"
"De hogynem. Ha nem akarsz beszélgetni akkor ne beszélgessünk... nevettek  Én arra vagyok kíváncsi hogy te mit tudsz róluk."
"Hát a mészárosnak sok a műszaki értelmiségi a hálózatában építészek, technikusok stb... És nagyobb valamivel mint az enyém. De azt nem tudom hogy a bagdy-nak mennyi embere van én nem nagyon látom hogy lennének saját emberei túl sokan."
"A bagdy az egy hálózat lopó."
"Micsoda?"
"A Bagdy az öregnek az egyik legtehetségesebb embere aki képes felismerni és lekövetni a triggereket amiket használtok az irányításhoz. Ő egy amolyan pióca, élősködő. Nincs sok saját embere - leszámítva a kurváit akikkel a picsáját nyalatja meg pár ember főleg technikai szakik - ő inkább feltöri más hálózatát és azokkal operál. Így nincs gond ha elbukik valakit, keres másik csapatot és feltöri őket majd felhasználja az emberiket amire gondolja. Nagyon ügyes, de
          Amikor én még kislány voltam...        
Hahaha igen. Voltam kislány is. A Tomival csináltunk egy ilyen pronóvideót. Az oka az volt hogy azoknak akik bele lettek kényszerítve a szexiparba vagy feladatot végeztek nekünk azoknak legyen pszichikai támasz erre az időre amikor kezdenek kiderülni a dolgok.
Mint például a tejes srác kislányai... de az egy még összetetteb történet.
A nagyobbik kislányt beépítetttük még akkor amikor kevesen voltunk hogy bizonyítékot gyűjtsön egy pedofil körről akik kívül estek a "hivatalos" rendszer látóköréből. Ezt úgy kellett megtervezni hogy legyen takarítás is utána tehát a kislány úgy jöjjön ki ebből hogy ne sérüljön vagy inkább - mivel ez lehetetlen - a sérülés a legkisebb mértékű legyen és fel legyen dolgozva.
De a kislány anyukája is benne volt ebben a maskarabálban kurvaként. Szégyellte amit műveltek vele ezért soha nem beszélt erről hangosan annak ellenére hogy intettem őket hogy erre szükség van. Ezért a libás tojásárussal és az apjukkal együtt megbeszéltük, hogy rajtuk keresztül bizonyítani fogom az összes többi számára hogy ezek a dolgok kizárólag akkor fognak megszűnni és kerülnek feldolgozásra amikor hangos élő beszéddel kimondják őket. Amíg ez nem történik meg addig a tudat alatt fejtik ki hatásukat és a következő nemzedék meg fogja ismételni az egészet. És ez hatalmas probléma, mert nem csak a nemi kilengéseket fogják megismételni hanem újraépítik az egész szeméthegyet öntudatlanul amíg a szülők nem hajlandók szégyenből vagy félelemből nyítlan beszélni legalább a család  és a szűk megbízható kör előtt. De sokszor elég az is ha csak a levegőbe beszélnek hangosan mert abban a pillanatban gyengül a tudat felett való ereje az ilyesminek.
Ezért a "kapaszkodj a kannába" volt az emlékeztető amit a tojásárus mondott nekem akkor amikor építettünk valamit és én vittem egy kannát. A kisebbik lány is belekerült ebbe a gödörbe és úgy is maradt mert nála nem volt megtervezett gyógyír és felépülési szakasz ami segít a természetes mederbe visszaevezni a feladat után. Ezért kellett ekkora pofont adnom neki, mert használta a női nemi vnzóerőt és rettenetesen erős a kislány - amivel hatalmas veszélyt vont magára öntudatlanul. Rengeteg a hulladék tudatú még a szexsátánista vonalon kontrollált ember odakinn. A szexsátánizmus legalább olyan erős mint a vérsátánizmus.
Szóval a kislánynak kellett ez a pofon hogy észrevegye magát és megérezze a veszélyt még azelőtt mielőtt nagyobb baj történik. Most az anyjuknak és az apjuknak tiszta vizet kell önteni a pohárba és beszélniük kell hangosan arról hogy mi volt és hogyan történt.
...
A tojásárusról jut eszembe hogy a liba - annak egyi őse - akkoriban egyszer náluk voltam és szólt nekem hogy szeretné megölelni a gyerekeket. Nem akarta elhinni. De a liba elmondta hogy látta mi hogyan csináljuk ezt és naki isnagyon jó érzés. Szeretné kipróbálni. A gyerekek akik ot voltak kipróbálták és a liba megölelte őket. Széttárta a szárnyait és rájuk zárta. Onnantól neki szabad bejárása lett a házba is. :-D
...
Szexsátánizmus. Szóval kellett valamit kitalálnom azoknak akik feladatot teljesítettek és úgy kerültek bele a szexiaprba olyan dolgokat művelve ami nagyon megterhelő. Ezért készült az a felvétel amin kislánynak maszkolva leszopom a mrgreent. Ja hát nekem megalázó volt csak a gondolata is én soha nem vonzódtam az ellenkező nemhez és az állatokhoz sem nemi viszonylatban. Ez mind feladat volt.
Azt tudtam hogy miután visszatérek az ereeti egészséges mederbe akkor utálni fogom azokat akik a természetes nemi érdeklődést manipulálják és akiket ilyen módon manipuláltak mert kaphatóak voltak erre. Ezek az emebrek mind a sátánista befolyás hatása alatt állnak mind a vérsátánista mind a szexsátánista erők tudják őket befolyásolni. Viszont sok egészséges irányultságú ember is benne volt ebben mint pl a srác aki george michaelt játszotta. Ő is a nőkhöz vonzódik. És feladatot teljesített.
---
Pisti. A Pisti egy fegyver. Olyan iszonyatos ereje van amit nehéz elviselni. Szinte minden élőlényt képes manipulálni hogy a célszemély vagy élőlény körül támadjon. Persze kizárólag azokat képes erre rávenni akik átestek valamilyen a szex vagy a vérsátánizmushoz kötődő beavatáson, traumán amivel irányíthatóvá tették őket. Azokat nem képes irányítani akik ez alól ki tudtak szabadulni vagy soha nem estek át ilyesmin.
A havas Henrik azért írta meg a szexipar elbrutalizálódásáról azt a könyvet - az irányító triggereivel együtt a saját hálózatának amivel nyomst helyezett erre a területre a jó irány eléréséért - mert a a Pistit vezérlő három nőt sikerült bevonni a kiképzésünkbe és kezdett emelkedni a tudat-szintjuk kezdtek megfordulni.
A Varga Pistiről is tudtam mindent a kezdetektől mert az ÖReg elmondott mindent. De sokáig tűrnöm kellett, mert a hálózat többi része számára be kellett bizonyítanom hogy ő csinálja ezt és hogyan csinálja és ki irányítja. Az egyik nő ott volt a cba-nál tegnap - ő mondta ezt hogy "ő a nagymester, most már csak a triggerbeültetésen kell átesnie"; a másikkal a futrinka utca végénél találkoztam bringával ment el mellettem, a harmadik pedig a főigazgató nő a könyvtárból. Ő volt a legkegyetlenebb.
A Psitit azért kellett gyakorlatilag péppé vernem, mert amikor kezdett emelkedni a szint egyre többen megtudták hogy mire képes és egyre többen irányították ellenem.
De a Pisti maga tényleg segíteni akart és amikor elvittük kiképzésre fejlődött is mert követte belül az iránymutatásokat. Az ÖReg azért kínozta meg és rakott mögé három távirányítót, mert a Pisti nem egy nagy értelmű ember és nem látja át olyan pontosan az összefüggéseket. Ezért nem irányíthatta eme különleges pszichés képességét önmaga. Kellett mellé valaki aki kontrollálja és helyette eldönti hogy ki legyen a célpont.
A mechanikája egyszerű volt. Meg kellett neki adni a célszemélyt vagy élőlényt és ő ráirányította az erejét. Az Öreg sok mindent megpróbált vele - és higyjétek el hogy ez azt jelenti hogy mindent megpróbált - azért hogy az erejét gyógyításra is lehessen használni. Nem sikerült. Nem tudta megoldani. Nem volt rá megoldás.
Amikor megvertem azért hogy kimondja és az Öreg vészkapcsolójával le tudjam állítani amikor rám irányítják, akkor már tudtam hogy a figyelők is fejlődtek. Felépítettem egy triggert hogy amikor legalább az egyik irányítója eljut arra a szintre hogy önállóan is dönteni tudjon és ellen tudjon szegülni a sátánista irányítknak az ő háta mögött - mert az irányítói lánc ott még nem ér véget... - akkor vertem meg. Tudtam hogy a halál küszöbéig kell eltolnom ahhoz hogy valamelyik lépjen és megengeje neki hogy kimondja azt amit ki akarok vele mondatni. A Vágó István alias Vágó Pisti VP Varga Pisti VP volt a lánc másik végén. Az ő kezére volt bízva a Varga Psiti mint fegyver. Ő állt a háttérben. Ő akkor már kiadta az utasítást hogy a Psiti nem kerülhet más kezébe és ha ő nem tudja irányítani akkor hagyják meghalni. A főigazgató és a másik hagyta volna meghalni, de az aki a futrinkánál cangázott az már odáig fejlődött hogy ő kihívta a mentőket. A Psiti már félig ájult volt a fájdalomtól akkor már nem hozzá beszéltem hanem a figyelő-irányítókhoz: "Ha 30 percen belül nem ér ide a pistihez a mentő akkor meghal." Ezt azért csináltam, hogy lebukjon legalább egy közülük és legyen bizonyíték rá hogy ő az. Sajnos egészen addig a pontig el kellett mennem a hentes munkában hogy a hagyományos a köznép számára elérhető sebészeti gondozás már nem volt neki elég, de gondoskodtam arról - apu gondoskodott róla - hogy itt legyen a közelben az Öreg orvosa és be tudjon avatkozni. Persze akkor mindjárt ment a pletyka arról is hogy meg akartam ölni a pistit és a szabolcs akkor ki is nyomozta hogy tényleg én vertem félholtra. Akkor még nem értette hogy miért csináltam ezt, mert ő akkor még nem tapasztalta meg és vigyáztam is arra hogy ne kerüljön a fókuszba mert nem bírta volna ki sokáig. Szeretett mozizni és jól is csinálta de nem mehetett azért hogy ezt elkerülje. Egyébként lebukott volna és ha bekerül a fókuszba megőrül. Most már pontosan tudja miről is van szó.
Azért is jó hogy a pisi megmaradt mert nagyon jó kényszerítő eszköz. Nem kell annyit ölnünk ha ő segít nekünk. :-D A havas már tudja most megtanulja a többi is.
A tervem pedig az volt hogy a pistivel is eléretjük a legmagasabb szintet a kiképzésben és amikor már eléri akkor kiadja a saját kezéből a saját tudata tökéletlenségeinek kontrollja alól a tehetségét és átadja egy minden emberi hatalomnál nagyobb erőnek az irányítást és mindent amit csinál a közös célunk alá rendel - akkor már nem kell félnünk attól hogy ki akarja irányítani mert a képessége ott és akkor fog aktiválódni amikor a célunk eléréséhez ez szükséges és ez a nem emberi hatalom ezt szükségesnek tartja.
Viszont közben bekészítettem egy csapatot arra az esetre ha a szabit teljesen megőrjítené hogy kiiktassa ráadásul azzal az utasítással hogy senkire ne hallgassanak csak arra akit régőta ismernek és a mienk és hangos élő beszéddel kimondja hogy miért nem szabad a pistit megölni. Apu vállalta hogy közbelép és leállítja őket.
Persze a Vágó psiti és csapata nagyon akarták hogy ez a fegyver ne kerülhessen a kezünkbe soha ezért nagyon akarták hogy mi pusztítsuk el. Apu közben szervezett mind a három grácia mind ő köré egy követő és védő csapatot hogy életben maradhassanak és fejlődhessenek. Persze ők mindig visszafogták a pistit egésze mostanáig.

Az informatikus srácnak a főigazgató nő mondta hogy lopja ki a pénzemet a számlámról és tegye utána vissza, mert neki is ez volt a parancsa hogy lopja el a pénzemet. Ezt én tanácsoltam neki mert így mondhatta hogy ő megcsinálta elopta a pénzemet és teljesítette a feladatot. Viszont nem károsított meg. Tudatosan szabotálta a dolgot. Az informatius gyerekre ezért haragudtam meg azért is mert ezt csak nyílt tisztázással tudta feloldani és ő se akart beszélni. Neki azt mondta a főigazgató hogy ez egy jelzés nekem.
---
A Vágó Pistinek megmutattam hogy mit kell megcsinálniuk milyen levelet kell írniuk nekem hogyan tudják kiváltani paksot és egy csomó mindent részletesen. Ő tudja mi jön ezután. Ha nem teszi meg akkor a pisti majd ösztökélni fogja őket... :-D Ő is a lavírozó közé tartozott és meg kellett várnia hogy itt rendződjenek a dolgok. Ha megcsinálja akkor ő is visszakerülhet a rend tagjai közé addig nem. A természet rendje. Pontos ütemterve van és részletesen elmagyráztam neki mindent.

A fasszopó és picsanyaló kurvák meg maradnak fasszopó picsanyaló kurvák és én állattal soha nem szexeltem arra még a legbrutálisabb kondícionáló csapat se tudott rávenni ott szakad el a cérna amikor bevezetett valaki egy kecskét hogy kecskés pornót csináljanak velem.
Volt ott egyébként egy srác közöttük akit én építettem be oda - mocskos volt és nem kapott komoly kiképzést csak felhasználtam - de pontosan akkor segített amikor kellett és egy leheletnyivel lehalkítota a hangerőt ami lehetővé tette hogy végiggondoljam mi történt addig és mit tudtam meg és mit tegyek. Ezért tudtam kitörni onnan. "De Peti és mi van ha a végtelenségig ott tartanak abban az erőtlen agynélküli állapotban?" (mert a folyamatos hangos zenével kifársztják az agyat annyira hogy nem vagy képes gondolkodni sem) "Arra az esetre felkészültem és akkor meg fogom ölni mind amikor ez elér egy bizonyos szintet hogy a feladatom végrehajtását veszélyeztetné." Ezért azt a srácot később életben hagyattam a többiekkel. Akkor meg kellett ígérnem az Öregek hogy ott akkor nem ölöm meg őket csak ha az életemre törnek. Viszont ez az ígéret nem vonatkozott arra az esetre ha esetleg később megint megtámadnak és "játszani" akarnának velem. Tudtam hogy meg fogják próbálni mert hülyék voltak és a szarházikat szolgálták. Azok meg rámuszították őket. Ők már nem jönnek velünk az új világba.

A gömi beöltözött zitának... kedvem lett volna megkérdezni tőle hogy őt zitának hívják-e? Csak hogy tudjam még mindig aképembe hazudna-e... szerintem megtette volna. Így van?

A Házasság intézménye is ennek a régi rendnek a találmánya persze sok száz éves már... azért lett ez is kitalálva hogy a természetes emberi kapcsolatokat kontroll (ellenőrzés és irányítás) alá vonják persze főként anyagi indokok mentén de szintén a pszichikai oldalról is.
Ugyanezzel a módszerrel éltek a nemiség természetes alapjaival kapcsolatban. Ezt is felforgatták és tönkretették. Azért dokumentáltam az utolsó még a természet rendje szerint működő emberi közösségeket - és azért tették ezeket is tönkre a szarházik - hogy legyen még példa arra hogyan ment ez régen. Ezt már leírtam. A közös kajiba használata és az ajándék szerepe a jelzés hogy megkívánt valaki valakit. Fekete törzs volt. Keressétek vissza.

A Bernie ecclestone-t is egy ilyen kislány kapta el és gyűjtött bizonyítékot arra hogy pedofil. Azóta ő is fejlődött és változott. Az ő feladata az volt hogy jóvátételként építse meg az elektromos autót olyan módon hogy az jobb legyen mint bármilyen benzines vagy diesel autó. Teher és személy mindegyiket meg kellett csinálnia. Gyártási tervek. Az árának is lejjeb kellett mennie mint a benzines autóknál a feltöltés idejét is le kellett szorítania legalább annyira vagy még gyorsabbra mint egy tankolás ideje és a hatótávolságot is jobbra kellett megcsinálnia. De a legjobb ha önfeltöltősre csinálja meg... úgy ahogy én csináltam.
Ezzel kiválthatjuk a robbanómotort és megmenthetjük a levegőt hogy tudjunk levegőt venni később is.

A gömi egyébként a legdurvább módon kapta meg mind a vérsátánista majd onnan kiszakítva a saját anyja által a szexsátánista beavatást és triggereket...

"Különben elkalapállak..." ez volt az emlékeztető a pisti verésével kapcsolatban. Egy kalapáccsal törtem el a csontjait. Azért használtam kalapácsot, mert ha kézzel ütöm abba beledöglött volna én ugyanis nem izomból ütök hanem a pszichés erőmet használom attól olyan erősek az ütéseim. A kalapáccsal jobban tudam szabályozni mekkorát üssek és hova. Akkor iszonyú dühömben megöltem volna ha kézzel ütöm. "A gyerek érti a dolgát, nem okozott a Pistinek olyan sérülést amiből ne tudott volna teljesen felépülni és belehalt volna." Nyugtatta meg az Öreg az akkor felkorbácsolt kedélyeket.
Persze most is van egy csomó akik a pisti tudatára akarják tenni a mocskos iránytó mechanizmusukat - de erre is felállítottunk egy csapatot akik őket megtalálják.
Egy technikai csapat is részt vett abban a folyamatban most hogy megpróbáljanak minket itt és főleg engem ráuszítani a pistire. Ezért nem hagytak aludni megint éjjel hogy az alváshiány és a bosszantás együtt elvégezze ezt a munkát.

A general motors azért volt az első adakozók között a közös számlánkra, mert nekik fejlesztettem egy csomó villanymotort. Mindenféle fajtát. kicsit nagyot, steppert, háromfázisút, egyenáram váltóáram stb... kis teljesítményűt, nagy teljesítményűt a legkisebb fogyasztással. A végén megkérdezték hogy mennyit kérek mindezért. Azt mondtam hogy fizessenek annit amennyit megér nekik ez a dolog és megadtam a közös számlánkat hogy ide utalják a pénzt. Hatalmas összeget küldtek. Persze azért hazudtam nekik mert ők elfelejtették említeni hogy a mieink. De jól jött ki, mert azonnal felismerték hogy ez az a számla. Ezért nyomták meg az összeget.

Az állatok nem a varga hatására jöttek oda hozzám. Ezt apuval leellenőriztettem. Amikor a mézegeret vettem fel. Hozott satelit elérést és megmutattam neki hogy csinálom. Kis kerek szemű jószág. Előtte meditálok és megkérdem az állatokat és a növényeket hogy valaki akar e segíteni abban hogy megmetsük a bolygónkat és az embereknek hajlandó-e megmutatni azt hogy hogyan eszik, hol alszik, hol pihen stb hogy jobban megismerjék őket és ezáltal jobban kötődjenek a természethez. Ezután elindultam valahová valamerre amerre és figyeltem jelentkezik-e valaki van-e mozgás. nem miinden állat reagált de néha volt egy kettő. Néha egy se amikor a pisti rámakaszkodott akkor azt aki segített nekem azt is támadták - mint amikor a fekete farkast vettem fel és tanítottam pocokra vadászni ő küldte oda a sakálokat hogy ellopják tőle. Mondtam hogy most már legalább tudja hogyan kell és amikor nem leszek itt majd egyedül megoldja.
Szóval amikor előjött egy mézegér és megmutatta hogyan eszik: "Nézd hát csak nyújtogatom a kis nyelvemet és ráragad a virágpor." "Mi nem bántunk senkit sem, csak néha nagyon kevés a virág..."
Szóval akkor mondtam apunak hogy kérdezze meg a Pistit mit csinál. "Hát hasogatom a fát a kertben..." Megnézte satelliten és tényleg azt csinálta. "Irányítottál valamit a Péterre mostanában?" "Nem. Mér kell? Csináljam?" "Nem dehogyis..."
De ha eléri a legfelső szintet a kiképzésben még jöhetnek meglepetések miután a külső kontroll lepattan róla és eltöltött pár évet a felépülésben... szerintem akkor be fog indulni a másik oldal is nála, mint oly sokaknál akik korábban a pusztító oldalon játszottak...
---
A masa gyuri meg beöltözött juhász norbinak.... hahaha a mozi maga jó... o o o ó... ő tanítja a biológiát a kiképzésen...
---
Ja körbe fogott mindenki mindenkit... ezért nem lehetett megbontani ennek a foshordának az egységét sehogy és azért rohant a vesztébe vég nélküli önpusztításban...
Szóval könnyebbség azoknak akik lemerültek a mocsoktengerbe: ha feladatod volt akkor meg fogsz könnyebbülni és ha kimondod hangosan akkor már senki nem tud ezzel bántani elveszti az erejét a támadás és a legfontosabb: a következő nemzedéknek már nem kell ezt végigcsinálnia!!! Ez a legfontosabb. Önmagadnak és nekik tartozol a hagnos beszéddel és hidd el - lehet hogy először rádtör a szégyen és a félelem ettól mit fognak majd szólni, de azok akik bántani akarnak még mindig a mocsokfürdőben pancsolnak te pedig előremozdítottad mindannyiunk sorsát a pozitív irányba. Több vagy mint ezek a beugató távirányított agynélküli fasszopók és picsanyalók. Vannak sokan akik sérültek annyira hogy nem képesek nemi örömre egy ellenkező neművel. A természet lehetősvé teszi hogy azonos neművel éldd át a nemi gyönyört. Viszont azzal tisztában kell lenned hogy ez nem a természetes állapot. Ez egy túlélési eszköz egy mankó hogy legyen neked is örömöd nemi örömöd ami segít túlélni az elszigeteltséget és a magányt a feszültséget stb. De a természetes állapotban ez nem fordul elő. Tehát van feldolgozni valód az egész-séged helyreálításáért.

Szóval a Pistivel is elkezdtem dolgozni és sikerült is pár dolgot átvinni az elméjén a Susan segítségével. Például megtanítottam neki hogy a támadás erősségét tudja szabályozni. Ehhez csak kellett építenie mentálisan egy skálát amin be tudta állítani hogy milyen erősségű legyen a támadás. 1 től 10 terjedő skála volt először de bármilyen számot beállíthatott még tört számot is. Ezt akkor tudtam átvinni amikor a Susan már eljutott a kiképzésbne egy igen jó szintre de még önállóan nem tudott döntést hozni és nem volt megbízható őt is ide oda rángatták és szivatták kívülről. Ez arra volt jó hogy a Varga Pisti mondhatta hogy igen ő támad de azt senki nem kérdezte hogy milyen erősséggel mert nem is tudta senki hogy már tudja állítani. Ez némi könnyebbséget jelentett nekem. Tudtam a feladataimat végezni.
A lyuk kérdése amit az Öreg meghagyott magának pedig mág akkor került rendezésre amikor elindultunk. Amikor elmondott mindent a Pistiről akkor dolgoztuk ki annak a módját hogyan zárjuk le ezt a lyukat. Megírtuk előre azt a szöveget amit a Pistinek fel kellett most olvasnia és a Susan adta oda neki. Ezzel lezártuk a Pisti kívülről emberi hatalom által való irányíthatóságának kérdését.
Amikor apuval leültünk ő kérte hogy én írjam meg. Az Öreggel úgy egyeztünk meg hogy csak akkor fog eszembe jutni amit mi ketten már megírtunk ha ő kéri hogy én írjam meg. Akkor megint megírtam de nem emlékeztem arra hogy már ezt mi ketten az Öreggel csináltuk. "Mi ez? A felmondólevelem? Kirúgott az Öreg?" kérdzte a Pisti amikor befejezte a felolvasást. hahaha Igen ki. És mostantól velünk dolgozol. A döntés lehetősége ki lett véve a kezéből és a tudatától függetlenné vált. Senkinek a kezében nem lesz fegyver többé csak a mi ügyünket szolgálja.
A Susan leszopta, mert egész életében erről álmodozott hogy egy nő leszopja. :-D Nagyon aranyos nő és belül teli életvidámságal és szeretettel. Nem félt mert ő tudta mit csinálok és mi a célom. Szerette a Pistit is és vigyázott rá. Annak ellenére hogy ő is a poklok poklán ment keresztül életében. Ő volt az aki a cia-tól utalt át pénzt a közös számlánkra az elsők között. A Susan Lindauer karakteréből. Pusszantás!
A másik aki az orosz hadseregtől utalt pénzt katona bácsi volt a minis brigádból. Az a srác jött a katapult szék anyagáért amikor kész lett aki sokáig a lángososnál dolgozott és beleköpött a lángosomba... Pedig ha ott akkor nem áll meg a folyosó végén amikor mondtam már ő se lenne. Bunkó.

Tegnap a Horváth gábor alias balettmester is megmutatta magát ott ült pár méterre tőlem ha minden igaz... nos az ő halálát is megbeszéltük előre a Varga gabival. Ő is egyike azoknak akire rá tudtam irányítani a Pistit és pár hét múlva könyörögve jött oda hozzám hogy bármit megtesz "ha kell leszopok egy lovat is bármitre hajlandó vagyo kcsak hogy ez véget érjen..." mondta "És mit kért?" "Azt hogy csináljam végig a kiképzését teljes odaadással és figyelemmel pontosan úgy ahogy ő mondja. az után fejlődtem olyan sokat szinte mindenben. Annyira jó lettem hogy megkért vigyázzak a vér szerinti anyjára és képezzek ki több nemzedéket is."
Azt hogy kutyával is basztam ő hazudta az nagyIminek. Egyrészt akkor támadás volt másrészt pedig kíváncsi volt hogy hol jön ki a dolog. Vízfestés.

igen szóval ez egy érzékeny téma. Sokakat megszivattak és sokaknak kellett lemerülni a mocsokba ahhoz hogy el tudjanak végezni néhány feladatot. Sokszor el kellett játszani - amit nem lehet eljátszani - hogy irányítani tudják a szarházik az embereinket ahhoz hogy bejussunk bizonyos helyekre ahol fontos dolgokat tudtunk elvégezni. Sokszor csak bizonyíték kellett valamiről, sokszor valakiért mentünk be, sokszor változásokat akartunk kieszközölni azon a területen - és ehhez ki kellett tennünk magunkat a területeket védő szennyesárok bűzének sőt át kellett úszni rajta hogy elérjük amit el akartunk érni.
Ez nem összekeverendő azzal amikor valaki a szarházik rendszerét szolgálta és úgy vett részt ebben a mocsokban haszon és kéjélvezőként. sokan öntudatlanul kerültek ilyen helyzetekbe mert gyermekkoruktól kondícionálták őket és nem volt esélyük se arra hogy mást lássanak. Nekik azt tudom mondani hogy mindegy milyen mélyre kerültél és milyen mélyről jössz - ha beszélsz és keresel segítséget találni is fogsz és fejlődni fogsz a teljes élet felé. Ezt bárki elérheti.
A fekete nyolcas összeszedett pár srácot. Az egyik tegnap este majdnem bekóstolt a barátnője uszította hogy öljön meg engem. De ne ő maga hanem a többi küldje rám. A Jani embere volt. Nem tudott olvasni se. Vele először a criminal minds csapat dolgozott és megcsinálták az ő történetének egy részét. Ő volt az aki nőkből illatszert készített magának. Sajnos csak nagyon nehezen és csak az erőszak nyelvén lehetett vele szót érteni. Őt meg kellett verni ahhoz hogy megértsen bizonyos dolgokat. De lassan lassan felfejlődött és olyan sokat haladt hogy belefért később a Jani csapatába. Ami azt jeletni hogy jobb mint az összes mester emberei. Sokak munkája fekszik benne sok év figyelme és erőfeszítése.
Tudtam előre és a Janival is meg a criminal minds os csapattal is megbeszéltük hogy ő meg fog borulni ha a Jani kiesik. A Jani elment legalább egy év rehab szabira, mert ő egészséges családban nevelkedett és neki ez nagyon sok volt velük, kicsit kell neki a távolság tőlük hogy helyre rázódjon a kár a fejében amit ők okoztak a velük való együttműködés közben és maga a karakter amit írtam neki. Ezket a hatásokat ki kell hevernie. Aktívan passzívan a megfelelő ütemben.
Ezért ugrott majdnem nekem a srác. És ezért készítettem fe la kézis csajokat arra hogy majd ők megverik. De megmondtam nekik is akkor hogy azért fogják tudni megverni mert a helyzet ezt kívánja és az alapállásuk akkor jobb lesz. Bármelyikük mehet az menjen aki a legjobb formában van pont akkor, mert nem az a cél hogy megöljük hanem hogy megértse mi van. Nem írom le pontosan hogy ez miért alakult így nem kell mindenkinek tudni. mélyről jött. Nagyon. És az irány ami felé tart jó. Nagyon. Belülről teljes meggyőződéssel. Az alapok megvannak. Erre a kézis csaj beugat nekem. Nos nem intha erre nem számítottam volna mert én már azt is láttam akkor hogy nem mindegyik értette meg ezt a dolgot a pszichés erő mibenlétéről. Ők is egészséges családokból jöttek de különböző szintű értelmi és logaikai képességekkel. Az a csaj pont aki megverte tegnap az se értette meg elkövette azt a hibát amit nagyon sokan korábban. Ha sikerült valami nekik és legyőztek valakit akitől féltek mert jó volt a harcban - azt hitték hogy akkor most már ők diktálhatnak. Tették mindezt a nélkül hogy mérlegelték volna az alapállásukat és azt hogy mit miért és hogyan csinálnak - és ennek mindig komoly következménye volt. Sokan meg is haltak e miatt. A legegészségesebb családok gyermekei közül is a legjobb eredményekkel a kiképzés során...
A helyzet arra is bizonyíték mindenki számára aki figyelt, hogy ezek az események nem spontán események mégha úgy is tűnik kívülről mintha egy csávó belém kötött volna és én meg ráuszítottam valakit hogy verje el.
Minden szereplővel dolgoztam. Sokat. Pontosan ismerem a pszichéjüket a hibáikat és az erősségeiket.
Nekem te nem ugatol be! Senki se! Én nem csipőből lövök vaktában hanem ott alázok ahol azt kell tenni, ott fasszopózok ahol azt kell tenni, ott kurva anyázok ahol azt kell tenni és ott állok félre ahol azt kell tenni - mert én minden tettemet a cél alá rendeltem és egy minden emberi hatalomnál nagyobb hatalom uralja és irányítja a tetteimet. Mindezt úgy hogy nagyon alaposan felkészülök és sokat dolgozok azon hogy minden eshetőségre fel tudjak készülni. Még egyszer: nem ugatsz nekem! Szólni lehet ha valami olyat látsz ami fontos a feladatohoz és akkor megfelelően cselekszem! Ugatni nem lehet mert akkora pofont kapsz hogy a bolygó másik oldalán fogsz magadhoz térni ha fogsz.
Óva intek mindenki hogy ilyen siker után gondolkodás nélkül nekimenjen bárkinek különösen ennek a srácnak! Hatalmas meglepetésben lesz részetek ha még élni fogtok hogy felfogjátok mi történt...
A vargagabi is megjelent de mégis miért érzem még mindig szarul magam?.... hát azért mert hazudtál a többieknek arról hogy fel tudja-e robbantani a földet vagy sem.
Nos majd ha felmegyünk később a holdra semlegesíteni a cuccomat akkor látni fogjátok. A szerkezetet úgy építettem meg hogy végül nem fogom tudni semlegesíteni mert a technológia nem kerülhet ki. Tehát el kellett végleg felejtenem hogy hogyan működik. Ez úgy tűnik a mindent átható alkotó és pusztító intelligencia akarata volt hogy így legyen. Egy dolgot tudok majd vele tenni: fel kell robbantani. Kiszámoltam hogy mikor és hogyan fog robbanni ha esetleg nem sikerül a tervem és kiszámoltam az is hogy hol fog robbanni ha sikerül. Hosszú meditáció során az összes lehetséges lehetőséget végiggondoltam. Nagyon messze lesz a földtől és még onnan is olyan fényjelenséget fog produkálni hogy a föld egy része ami akkor pont árnyékban lesz nappali világosságot fog megtapasztalni. Megkértem egy pár embert hogy akkorra majd oda állítsanak fel komoly rögzítőeszközöket többélét, de ezt akkor majd sokan fogják figyelni. Meg fogjátok látni hogy mennyire nem vicc amit mondok. Nappali világosság lesz ott ahol éjszakának kéne lennie egy villanásnyi időre... tessék kérem komolyan venni a dolgot.
Bearni volt pedofil nem aktív már felépülő és kap rendes valós segítséget.

Valamelyi kazt mondja nekem hogy a Pistit azért tudtam elverni emrt hagyta magát. Nos a kezdet kezdetén az Öreg egyik embere A legjobb verekedő az összes közül nekemugrott. Megöltem. Eltörtem a nyakát és szétkentem az agyvelejét a járdán. Azért csináltam úgy hogy véletlenül se tudják összerakni az Öreg orvosai. Az Öreg akkor kezdett el nagyon komolyan venni. Bár utólag azt gondolom, hogy ezt is direkt csinálta. Beáldozta a legjobb harcosát hogy a többi háromszor is meggondolja hogy nekem ugrik-e vagy sem. És igen. Az Öreg megparancsolta a Psitinek hogy ne harcoljon. A Psiti is igen jó kiképzést kapott, de sehol sincs hozzám képest ahhoz viszont elég jó hogy a harc közöttünk ne lehessen hosszú. Ha nem arancsolja meg neki akkor rövid és gyors halála lett volna. Nem lett volna más választásom mint ohgy megölöm, mert ahhoz túl jó volt még a többiekhez képest is. Talán a legjobb után a második.
De aki azóta részt vett a kiképzésemen velem és eljutott a teljes őszinteség szinjére és átengete a tudatának az irányítását nekem a kiképzés alatt majd felfejlődött velem. Azok pontosan tudják mivel néznének szembe ha velem akasztanának bajszot. A többi ezek háta mögül ugat... amíg nekik is be nem verem a pofájukat.
Vagy megkérek egy tízéves kislányt akit a bátyám képzett ki hogy tanítsa meg őket a tiszteletre.

Anyu is szerepelt filmben és ő volt talán az egyike az elsőkenk akik észrevették hogy azok a statiszták nem statiszták és nem eljátsszák a Nicaraguai terepen hogy meghaltak, hanem ott valóban lelőtték őket csak a film kedvéért. Ezér válaszottam őt anyukámnak.

A Tomi alias mrgreen tanított nekem egy csomó magyar mondókát és versikét amiket azóta eltüntettek a magyar közoktatásból teljesen, mert segíteték a fejlődést és nagyon erősek voltak. Ezeket jó lenne újraéleszteni és elterjeszteni. Erősek és nagyon jók. Jobba ntud magyarul mint azok akik itt nőttek fel és itt jártak iskolába. Szégyen és gyalázat az itteni szarházi uralkodó patkányhorda és azok szolgáinak részéről.

A vér szerinti szüleim nagyon szerettek volna egy kislányt. Ennek volt annyira brutális hatása a pszichémre és akartam nővé válni. Az arcukra sem emlékszem. Előkerült egy film ahol ott volt az Andi is egy kosztümös film ahol nőt alakítottam abroncsos szoknyára voltam kíváncsi hogy abban hogyan tudtak mozogni és létezni meg karakter felderítés egyben - de ott is megmérgeztek és az a vér a kesztyűmön nagyon is valódi. "Hogyan képes még saját lábán elsétálni ekkora dózissal?" elégedetlenkedett valaki... ott is hagytam azt a patkánybandát a francba... az ott annyi volt...

A főzés egy tudomány. Nem elég csak a tüzet meggyújtani, kellenek hozzávalók is amiket gondosan kell összeválogatni és a megfelelő sorrendben adagolni. Ha valakire rágyújtod a házat és nem akarod hogy benne égjen akkor kell útjelző amit a legdurvább füstben is látni lehet: erre van a kijárat.

A Közös tudaton kersztül is próbálkoznak a pisti irányításával... de erre is gondoltunk. A próbálkozások egy része átmegy realizáljuk és tudatosítjuk honnan jön és utána visszalő a fegyver... ezt most tanulják a nagy manipulátorok... :-D :-D :-D tesztelik... hogy működik Vágó Pisti? :-D Jó mi?

          Sometimes a walnut falling off of a tree can change everything...        
on a special closed one time AA meeting somewhere in the USA
"And this week wa about a continues 4th step. Inventory on the inside on the outside. What can deterr me from doing what I wanted: tiredness, focus loss, emotions etc; on the outside any changes what I have to give the right reaction. What happened and what to do about it. I built up mental alarm hipnotic sets to get conscious notice about all of these things I could mep up to get clue and do the right action to overcome them. And also I always leave room for a special alarm what is linked to a power which is greater than any kind of human power individually or in the best syncronised group - because there is a power greater than all of us, which created this universe. So I build always a trigger to get notified by this higher power if it is neccessary to carry out its will."
...
És ezért volt fontos hogy George ott legyen ezen a gyűlésen velünk. Hogy később össze tudják együtt szedni mi történt és hogyan.

"Ha esetleg abba a mélyalvós állapotba kerülnék és bármi történik dobj egy diót a shed tetejére. Nem lesz feltűnő, mert a diófa ott áll mellette. Arra biztosan fel fogok ébredni..."

kb négy vagy öt napja voltam már a shedben abszolút elszigetelve a külvilágtól. WC, hőképárnyékolás, vastag bolyhos szőnyeg alattam egy asztal, egy számítógép monitor egy mikrofon egy polc a kajának mellette víz egy induciós főzőlap hogy teát kávét tudjak főzni - kis összonfortos bunker, főhadiszállás ahol napi 23 órában figyeltem és fókuszáltam minden változásra. Négy fő csoportot kellett összekordinálnom az egyik a saját csapatom, a másik George védő csapata, a harmadik a támadó csapat és az is meg volt osztva mert egyik részük szabotálni akarta az akciót. Őket sikerült félretolni egy mellékutcába. Hallgattak a silet talk-omra mert a céljaink egyeztek tulajdonképpen csak nem mondhattam el nekik.
23 óra fókusz naponta egy hétig. Valahol a vége felé amikor már nem volt mozgás semmi már egy fél órája és éreztem hogy muszály pihenni az ékszaka csendjében ledőltem. A többiek váltották egymást a figyelőhelyeken nekik muszály volt legalább 6 órát aludniuk hogy biztosan kipihenten és éberen tudjanak mozogni ha kell. Nekem muszály volt figyelnem és a tervet folyamatosan átalakítani a körülményekhez képest.
Those smart asses did not trust me and wanted to get more teams on the field. For the last week I told them I will hide somewhere in the area. "Why don't you come in our centre? We ahve the satellite and all sort of stuff to do the monitoring?" they asked. "Because i trust nobody but one." I said. They smiled. hahaha nem értették... De megértettek mást.
...
Egyszer csak koppant valami a shed tetején. Eltelt egy pár másodperc, kettő, amíg felfogtam hogy baj van. Mint az acélrugó pattanatam fel a meleg bolyhos és vastag szőnyegről és ugrottam az asztalhoz. "Mi van?" kérdem. "Semmi." mondja valaki "De diót dobtál a shedre nem?" "Én nem dobtam semmit sem. Lehet hogy csak leesett egy dió magától." Egy pár másodpercig figyeltem befelé és bámultam a monitort meg a térképet az asztalon a rossz érzésem nem hogy nem múlt el hanem csak fokozódott. "Valami baj van. Underground?" kérdeztem a radart figyelőktől. Kis csend majd: "There is fast movement in sector xyz toward yxc one person." our guy noticed. Hirtelen mindenki hátán végigfutott a hideg. Elaludtunk mind. "De ez csak egy ember." mondta a radarfigyelő. Hirtelen mint valami elektromos áramütés úgy futott át rajtam a félelem. És a másodperc törtrésze alatt eszembe jutott hogy pár hónappal korábban fejlesztettem ezeknek egy új fegyvert amihez kell egy marksman aki a helyszínt és a cél középpontját megjelöli egy speciális festékkel... "Get down to the tunnel now!" I switched on the ultrasound audio hibrid system. Megegyeztün khogy ezt csak abban az esetben fogom használni ha azt feltételezem hogy az elménket valami befolyásolja és nem bízom meg a telepatikus kommunikációban. És abban a pillanatban át is kellett azonnal szervezni az egészet a kieső ember miatt. Soroltam a többieknek hogy ki hová mozduljon hogy a lyuk fedve legyen. Az egész terv veszélybe került. Ez a húzás midnent felborított. Nem számítottam arra hogy képesek lennének bevetni ezt a hipermodern fegyvert azért hogy Georgeot megöljék. A szokott módon letöröltem az emlékezetemből hogy csak a kellő időben leplezzem le és szivárogjon ki.
Szerencsére már pár héttel az akció előtt George csapata megneszelte hogy valami készül és aktiválták a legmagasabb készültséget. A környék folyamatos felügyelet alatt állt. Így volt olyan plusz csapat akiket egyszerűen ők semlegesítettek nem is kellett közbeavatkozni, amelyikről meg nem tudtak azokról az én csapatom szivárogtatott nekik. Erre külön felállítottam egy teamet, akik ismerték az egész GB-t védő csapatot és kidolgoztak egy ötletbörzén különböző módokat hogyan tudják majd a különböző infókat összefűzni hogy ne derüljön ki hogy mi figyelmeztettük őket, hanem valamelyik gyenge láncszem kogyogott valamit és gb csapata kifigurázta a tervüket. Mivel tudtam is emezeket manipulálni ezért sokszor felhasználtam őket arra hogy elkottyantsanak valamit. De ez most más volt.
Amikor mindenki felvette az új pozíciót és végül sikerült a mozgó embert megállítani az alagútban még a szükséges határon kívül azonnal új utasításokat adtam. "Keressetek egy ilyen és ilyen belső méretű teherautót zárt, raktérrel ami a célterület felé mozog 21 mérföldes körzetben." Meglett hamar. Ekkor elhangzott egy pár kérdés hogy mi történt mégis. elmondtam nekik hogy az új fegyver amire akkor nem emlékeztem azt is be akarták vetni. A hírek gyorsan terjedtek. Mivel most a közvetlen és a távolabbi körzetek is riadóztatva voltak hogy figyeljenek gyorsabban ment minden mint egyébként. ilyenkor annyi változik csak hogy egy két ember csak a történésekre figyel és nem foglalkozi semmi mással. "Azt a teherautót nem engedhetitek 15 mérföldnél közelebb a célzónához semmilyen szín alatt." mondtam. Végül valaki bejelentkezett hogy va nitt valaki aki azt mondja hogy ő tud erről a teherautóról és tudja mit kell azzal a cuccal csinálni, mert én felkészítettem. "Miért nem halljuk őt? És ő miért nem hall minket?" "Totál részeg, Péter biztos vagy te ebben?" Akkor eszembe jutott hogy tényleg előkészítettem valakit erre az esetre. "Tegyétek fel az audio rendszerre." Bejelentkezett. Tényleg totál részeg volt de még valamennyire bírt fókuszálni. "jól van jól van, tudom mit kell csinálni, adtál valami gyógyszert amit most be kell vennem hogy kijózanodjak... bár azért valami pénzt is ígértél hogy utána újra be tudjak rúgni..." nevetett "Oké vedd be hallani akarom a hagnodat amint hat..." bevette pár perc múlva már teljesen kitisztult a feje és elkezdett remegni a keze az idegességtől. "Jól van menni fog csak vegyél egy mély lélegzetet és nyugodj meg. Midnen eszedbe fog jutni mit kell tenned. Ha érzed hogy kezdesz ideges lenni, állj meg és egyél egy mély lélegzetet várd meg amíg megnyugszol és folytasd." A szerkezetet ő semlegesítette.
Ez a szerkezet minden alapos és átgondolt tervemet keresztülhúzta volna és sikerrel jártak volna vele. Mindezt azért tudtuk megállítani mert a diófáról lehullot egy dió a shed tetejére és mert hagytam helyet hogy az univerzumot teremtő és átható erők is bele tudjanak szólni abba amit csinálok. Hagytam helyet neki és építettem egy figyelmeztető triggert hogy a tudatomat is elérje bármikor.
Végül is így indult az egész program.
A GB-t támadó fejek is megértették azokat a dolgokat amiket az univerzum és az emberi pszichés erőkről elmagyaráztam nekik. megértették, de ők úgy döntöttek, hogy ők nem akarnak azon az úton járni amin én járok. Később rájöttem hogy mit csináltak. Megértették hogy a véráldozatnak mi a hátránya és hogy ha ellenem használják támadásra akkor belehalnak, mert az én pszichés erőm nagyobb mint az övék és visszafordítom a véráldozattal kért támadást feléjük. Ezért nem támadtak, hanem azt kérték hogy a gyengeségeinket ki tudják használni és a támadást fizikai síkon szervezték meg tevőleges akcióval. Csak azt kérték a véráldozat útján hogy mi ne vegyük észre mit akarnak, pontosabban hogy a hibáinkat ki tudják használni. Ha nem hagyok helyet a felsőbb erőnek és nem tud engem figyelmeztetni akkor sikerrel jártak volna.
Kétségbe voltak esve annyira akarták GB halálát hogy bármire hajlandóak voltak érte. Azért mer GB fejlődött és ők ezzel tökéletesen tisztában voltak, veszélyeztette a hatalmukat és ők ezt nem tűrhették.

GB-t ezek gyártották le, ők kínozták és őrjítették meg. Az Öregék alapcsapata a nagy öregek. Az a szarházi aki a miniben a perfrmance-t produkálta ami nem volt performance... "Véráldozat kell..." A kalap tulaja, az imre a kovács, a gál és a többi... ők kezték ezt az egészet és ők nyomták el a végletekig bármilyen eszközt felhasználva. Összeszedték a legérzékenyebb legnagyobb intelligenciájú gyerekeket és megőrjítették őket. MEgkínozták őket. Karakterből karakterbe hajszolták őket és kialakítottak egy irányító rendszert föléjük. Ők meghúzódtak az egyszerű ember szintjén, s csak akkor váltottak karaktert húztak más maszkot amikor fényűzésre támadt kedvük vagy valamit el kellett intézniük. Azután az Öregék kis csapata egyszer csak túlnőtt a fejükön, pont úgy ahogy most az a karaktercsomag amit az ormány-fodor-gyurcsány-habony-kovács-horn jelentett. Ez utóbbi kettő még egy korábbi csomagból maradt. A következőt is már bekészítették persze. Ez a politikai és egyéb paletta az ő kontrolljuk alá tartozott és mindegy ki került pozícióba ők irányították őket a kezdetekktől a háttérből.
Közben e rendszer őrületét fokozta hogy időnként egy egy ilyen kugli túlnőtte őket mint pl George is. Ilyenkor amikor valaki erősebbé vált a többi azonnal összefogott hogy megöljék és ezzel az egész rendszert változatlanul tudják tartani. Így kerültem én is a képbe és ezért etettek meg a Rotchild baromsággal, hogy én leszármazottja vagyok annak a családnak. Az összes cég amiknél dolgoztam az elmúlt tíz évben - onnantól hogy levágtam magam a "Rotchild" számlákról, mert akkor fejlesztettük a kp és banki átutalást lekövetni tudó rendszereket és nem akartam többé a saját csapataimat leleplezni, hiszen minden pénzt onnantól követni tudtak hogy honnan jön és kihez került... szóval ne akartam őket lebuktatni. Ezeket a pénzeket ami onna jött az ő hálózatuk vízfestésére használtam. Ezért volt részem annyi nagyon ravasz módon szervezett zaklató hadjáratokban bárhová is kerültem. Szinte kivétel nélkül mindegyik cég akiknél megfordultam az ő szarházi embereikkel volt tele, tisztelet egy pár kivételnek.
S az őrület még tovább fokozódott a miatt hogy ezek egymást is megölték és újragyártották. A rendszer gyakorlatilag egy öngyilkoló egyre fokozódó ütemben rohadó szemétdombbá vált. De ezek itt baja környékén mo-n kezdték és ők voltak a legjobbak az ilyen típusú kínzásos állandó forgatós mindframe kialakítós szarakodásban. Azután meg amikor készen voltak csak szóltak nekik mit akarnak és azok megcsináltak mindent úgy ahogy kellett.
De velem homok került a rendszerükbe.

Apropó. A kiscsajos-redőrös történetbe azért mentem bele, mert ez a szarházi állt elő ezzel a történettel hogy mi lenne ha láthatóvá tennénk ezt a dolgot és bizonyíték is lenne róla. Ezért ott semmi sem történt, és ő meg azt akarta ezzel elérni, hogy egyrészt diszkreditáljon engem, másrészt emezeket megszivassa az ismét a fejükre nőtt ganrintúrát a megfigelő csomaggal, és egyben úgy adja ki a parancsot a véráldozatra hogy azt játssza el mintha nekem végezne ezzel feladatot... nos ez nem volt így... De ha már így alakult akkor felhasználtam ezt a dolgot. Egyrészt vízfestésnek jó volt hogy ki biztos a dolgában ki nem... ki fut, ki nevet...
Másrészt ezt a rohadtul jól rejtőzködő szarházit meggyőztük arról hogy megettem a dolgot, így visszajött. Viszont vártunk rá. Nem megy többé sehova.
Ott bukott le hogy azt hazudtam neki hogy én mindig tartom magam ahhoz a történethez amit megbeszéltünk. Csakhogy ez hazugság volt. Ebből a többiek tudták hogy ő is hazudott nekem a beállított szűrők miatt. Ő azt hitte sikerült átvernie - sikerült becsapnia a tudatomat - de a tudatomnál nagyobb hatalmakat nem tudta átverni. A teremtő erőhöz kötöttem ezt a hazugás felismerő tudatomon kívüli szűrőt. Így még ha engem át is tudnak verni - mindig van segítségem az univerzum teremtő erői pótolják amit én nem ismerek fel.
Bush-t is elbizonytalanították. Ezért hozott ide egy szívritmus felismerő programhoz köttött atomot, ha nem én vagyok akkor felrobbanthatja, mert ezek itt mind elárultak engem... "Mert én innen már nem megyek sehova semmilyen más karakterbe se amszkot nem fogok húzni. Ha nem én vagyok ölj meg mindenkit ebben a városban!" És nem egyedül változtatok a szívritmus mintázatomon, hanem az univerzum törvényeit követve szert tettem az univerzumot alkotó és romboló erők támogatására. velük együtt megy. Hosszú évek gyakorlása az alapgyakorlatokban, elemzés, leltár, és állandó folyamatos determináció a célom felé, egyeztetés minden alkalommal az univerzum törvényeivel... No relapce... állandó iránytartás, még ha indőnként ki is tudtak billenteni akkor is mindig visszatértem...

Csináltam egy speciális dobozt amit beszereltünk george autójába... Shockprofe, vákumos réteggel szigetelve, folyékony nitrogén, titánium asszem még a csempékből is jutott a tetejére amit valamelyik hold projektből loptam ki hogy bírja a hőt, belül oxigen, elektromos emelő, a nyitáshoz volt kb 6 másodperc ahol csak egy figyelő látta ott cserélt a egy szarházi helyettesítőre majd bumm... találat fémolvadás zene bona, szarházik pezsgőznek stb... kisteherautó a takarítókkal jön roncsok berak, én bent dobozt kinyit, george kiugrik átöltözik én feloldom az autót, leeresztem. george egyik sarkon megint föld alá kiugrik, vissza a rezidencira 35 second, scotch helyettesítő gyümölcs kever megisz, majd este AA meeting, majd eltűnik hat hónapra training felfrissítés már az aktivált dumber but strong george profillal-al. Én haza.
---
Egyébként az után a szinetár-george-én film után amikor otthagytam őket a francba akkor lezárt minden hazautat onnan, de nem csak george a hülye fejével hanem a többi is. Szóval akkor még a szarházi elmebeteg emberkereskedőkkel se tudtam megegyezni hogy hozzanak haza. Ekkor kellett átkenuznom alaszkából oroszországba 200km-rt rohadt hidegben és az elején viharban az első szigetig hogy majd megdöglöttem bele... onnan meg stoppal meg vonatokra felmászva végig oroszországon... az mondjuk már szép volt. Még ott is van egy csomó ember akik még akkor is segítettek. Adtak enni, inni szállítottak stb. Szóval akkor bunkó volt nagyon, megérdemelné hogy megcsináltassam vele ugyanezt... de nem teszem, mert a jóvátétele kárpótol.

He figured it out. Csodálkoztam, hogy hogyan lehetséges és miért adott a teremtő ekkora hatalmat egy ilyen vadállat kezébe. Nem értettem. Ma már értem. Van helyük az emberi faj történetében, sőt fontos szerepük van. Ők azok akik eltakarítják a halott hulla részeket. Nem ölhettük meg, és nem ölhetjük meg. "De akkor mit csináljunk vele. Ő soha nem fog megváltozni." mondja bokor gyuri (igen ő is itt született, már az a kugli aki túlnőtte emezeket a globális palettán, s innen indult ezen a néven...) "De parancsolni sem fog senkinek, aki végrehajtja a parancsait azt megöljük mindegy milyen irányba mozdulnak. Elszigeteljük hogy csak élő szóban tudjon a hálózatával kommunikálni és így saját maga fogja leépíteni a saját hálózatát." Ő is részt vett abban amikor a Girl with the dragon tatoo -t csináltuk. Ő hozta azokat az elmebetegeket a filmbe és azok a jelenetek valóságosak. A csaj akki eltűnt tényleg eltűnt abból a családból, nekem dolgozott és tényleg ő küldte azokat a szárított virágokat az egyik családtagnak, akiben látott reményt. Amikor elkezdett megfordulni mindjárt meg is akarták ölni valóságosan, de túlélte a támadást és csak azért élte túl mert elfogadta a programot. Megfordult. És a lány ezért jött vissza. Én nem emlékeztem, hogy  alány nekem dolgozik, mivel a személyes identitásokat mindig elfelejtettem védelmi okokból. De megtaláltam.
A másik csávó tényleg mellém lőtt, mert mondtam neki hogy engem nem tud lelőni és ha rám lő akkor meg fogom ölni. Viszont megoldották, hogy úgy lőjön mellém, hogy egy szilánk az arcomba csapódjon. Ez sem semmi. A film azért jött létre hogy Joe - hívjuk most így a kövér csávót - megmutassa nekem hogy ők milyen jók és milyen erősek és hogy csináljunk valamit közösen.
A lány tényleg kiváló volt, de akkor még Joe kontrollálta az elméjét. Ezért nem hallota amikor szóltam neki hogy el kell mennem és már nem leszek itt. Az utolsó pár jelenetben ezzel is meg akarta őt törni Joe.
...
"Jól érezted magad?"
"Hülye vagy? Életemben először élveztem el férfival."
...
"Jó veled dolgozni."
"Jó veled dolgozni."
...
"Én már nem leszek itt."
A lány megfordult és ment.
"Nem hallja."
"Őt is ők kontrollálják Péter hagyd elmenni!"

"De ez a csávó tök részeg..."
...
"Ő az egyetlen ember a földön aki képes azt a cuccot semlegesíteni rajtam kívül. Mi építettük ketten. Nincs más."

I switched the audio system on. The rest of the team alredy found the track. They transferred the satellit image on my screen.
"Yes! That is the one! You have to stop that track before it gets to the corner of that street! Get somebody there! That thing in that track has more distruction potential than a 400MTonnes nuclear bomb!"
"Can we shoot them?" somone asked
"Yes. Shoot them! Now!"
One police man immediately shot the driver. An other guy jumped into it and followed my guide.
Turn it back, reverse to the corner and turn around! You care about no one if you have to drive through a mother with a baby you see nothing but obstacle and drive tham through!"
Someone in the background quckly gave instructions to others to celan the road. I looked for a squere to have the track visible and safe. From that point the millitary turned up with special forces and sealed the area. Two choppers in the air and full cover on ground. "Peter the millitary got involved they break into the audio system." "No I invited them to the game, no worries I just wanted to know if those guys are up to their word or not." "Game?" someone asked... "this is too much to be called a game..."
Közben újabb mozgás volt a terülten azt is meg kellett oldani...
Well it is not a game at all. It is real.

Joe is fejlődött de egy minden emberi hatalomnál nagyobb erő létét bizonyítanom kellett a számára. még akkor sem akarta elhinni amikor az utolsó felvetéseit is cáfoltam. Ő találta ki azt hogy ha nem ellenem támad hanem a gyengeségeimre és hiányosságainkra építve erőt kér a sikeréhez akkor le tud győzni. Akkor mondtam el neki hogy mi mindig hagyunk egy triggert és beleépítjük a terveinkbe ezt a minden emberi hatalomnál nagyobb hatalmat, erőt mint ha a csapatunk egy tagja lenne. Ő - vagy ez is részt vesz a tervezésben kivitelezésben. És e miatt ez sem fog működni. De neki ezt be kellett bizonyítani.

"És utána?"
"Utána? Ti ismeritek a többieket, hogy kik voltak előttetek és kik azok akik benneteket táncoltattak, ti tudjátok csak megtalálni őket. Megkeresitek mindet. Amelyik végleg elrohadt azt megölitek. Akivel tudtok dolgozni azzal dolgoztok hogy megforduljon. Ha nem megy megölitek. Egyedül ti tudjátok őket megtalálni, viszont ti meg fogjátok találni őket.

Yes I can change my heart beat pettern. George can do that and apu is meg tudja csinálni most már egyedül is. Ez az erő azon alapul hogy milyen hosszú ideje gyakorolod és milyen mély elkötelezettséggel a programot. hogy mennyire mélyen tartod meg az irányt. Hogy megismered-e a teremtő erő akaratát és törvényeit. Isten - nem szeretem ezt a szót a rárakódott manipulatív tudattartalmak miatt - vagy inkább az univerzumot teremtő erők vagy intelligencia (central intelligence) a törvényeit nem kőtáblákba véste. Amit kőtáblákra véstek az csak emberek találmánya vagy manipulatív trükkje, szemfényvesztése a tömegek irányítására. A teremtő erő törvényeit a valóság pontos megfigyelésével és megértésével bárki megismerheti mindenféle közvetítő segítsége nélkül.

"Otthagytalak, de elköszöntem, csak nem hallottad mert még mindig ők kontrollálták a tudatodat. Egész pontosan mennem kellett máshová a dolgomat elvégezni."

Joe rendszeresen küldött embereket hogy segítsenek vagy közeledjenek felém - parancsra - majd megölte őket vagy megpróbálta még a korai szakaszban amikor épp csak sikerült valakit megfordítani, akkor megölni őket. Vagy amikor már elismertem a pozitív hozzáállásukat és megszerettem őket, akkor valami ormótlan brutális dolgot művelt velük, mint ahogyan a tetovált lányt is brutális módon megerőszakoltatta... "ahhh peter this was nothing compared what I've gone through before..." she told me silently.
Most élhet, de mindenki meghal aki teljesíti akármilyen parancsát. "De a segítene nekünk amit parancsol nekik?" "Akkor hagyjátok hogy befejezze és utána öljétek meg." "De ez brutálisan kegyetlen." "Figyelj ezek akik még most is engedelmeskednek neki ezek zombik. Akármit tesznek jót rosszat az ő befolyása alatt állnak és akkor is ha jót tesznek és segítenek nekünk akkor is zombik maradnak. Leszopnak és akár az életüket is feláldozzák vagy veszélyeztetik hogy megmentsenek ha az a parancs és után kibeleznek ugyanazzal az arckifejezéssel ha az a parancs. Nekik meg kell halniuk, mindnek!" "És aki ellenáll neki?" "Azokat vegyétek be a felépülési programba. Kezeljétek őket külön és ne keveredjetek velük. Tanítsátok és képezzétek ki őket, ugyanúgy ahogy a többit, de elszeparálva. Ha a beépülés a céljuk és Joe azt parancsolta nekik hogy álljanak ellen a parancsának és épüljenek be, akkor is csak saját csoportjukat ismerjék és csak saját magukat tudják felderíteni. Nekik egyébként nem lesz más választásuk mint vagy haladnak előre a programban vagy ő maga fogja őket kinyírni. Akik hazudnak azokat szivassátok meg és adjátok a vérvadak kezére hogy kínhalállal haljanak meg. Amelyik megérdemli, mert annyit haladt és mégis visszafordult vagy ellenem vagy ellenünk fordult azoknak jár a gyors és fájdalommentes halál. A többit tudni fogjátok irányítani és adjátok a második szint kezére..."

A kis csapat amelyik Bokor Gyurit kereste az észeki sarktól a déli sarkig, a sivatagoktól, az őserdőig a nagyvárosokban a falvakban a föld alatt és a levegőben... kiváló munkát végzett. Kidolgoztak egy kereső csomagot amivel fel lehet deríteni és meg lehet találni a maszkok alatt rejtőzködő egyéneket. A szívizomzat működésének is van egy mintázata és olyan mint egy ujjlenyomat mindenkinek van egy bizonyos mintázata amiről felismerhető - akármilyen szerepet ölt magára és akármilyen jó valaki más testmozgás, arcmimika váltogatásában, a szívizomzat ritmusát csak azok tudják megváltoztatni, akik eljutottak a legjobbak szintjére. Az egyesek. Én, apu, Bokor Gyuri eddig akikről tudok. A külső hatásokra változó szívritmust is fel lehet deríteni, hiszen tudjuk milyen esközökkel lehet kívülről technikai megközelítésben változásokat eszközölni, de a sajtos mintát akkor sem tudják elrejteni... :-D Megvagytok mind. Sehová se tudtok elbújni. És a számonkérés be fog következni. Kétféleképpen alakulhat a dolog: vagy jóvátétellel elindultok a helyes irányba, vagy elköszöntök a kis és a nagyszínpadtól is.
---
És aki visszaesik vagy elvéti az irányt az azonnal elveszíti ezt az erőt... ami számára igen katasztrófális következményekkel fog járni. A legjobbak ugyanis nem vétenek. Velük van az erő. May the force be with you!

Van oka annak hogy miért adott a teremtő akkora hatalmat egy embernek. Jó oka van. Akkor is ha az az ember iszonyú dolgokat művelt életében. De parancsolni nem fog többé csak a jól irányítható zombijainak. És a szarházi húzás most visszalő: hogy a figyelőket és a telepata silent talk üzengetést lehet blokkolni és félreirányítani. Ezért vissza kell térnie az old school módszerekhez, de azt is fel lehet deríteni, hiszen találkoznia kell legalább egyszer az irányítóival és hosszú ideje figyeljük... és ha Isten is úgy akarja... akkor meg is ölöm. És ha nem áll le és nem takarítja el a szarát akkor én döglök meg és velem együtt mindannyiótok. Ha ő meghal akkor lesz harmadik világháború amit csak nagyon kevesen fognak túlélni. lehet hogy ez a szarházi zombik sorsa.

A legfelső szint tehát a legjobbaké. Ők akármi történik tartják a természet törvényeit és az irányt amit elég jól körbeírtam. Ők a legjobbak a legerősebbek.
Alattuk a következő szint azoké akik kegyetlenkednek és lopnak csalnak hazudnak, de a tevékenységüket alárendelik a legjobbak által megfogalmazott céloknak. Ők erősebbek mint az alattuk lévő valamennyi szint együtt vagy külön, de gyengébbek mint a legjobbak.
Alattuk vannak azok akik a szeretetre építenek ugyan, de a céljaikat tekintve minden másra szarnak magasról, és nem hajlandóak hosszú távú terveket szem előtt tartni amelyek illeszkednek a föld életközösségébe és az univerzum törvényszerűségeivel harmonikusan. Ők tényleg szereteik egymást, de atomerőművekből, olajból és csupa olyan dologból gazdagodnak amik a létünk alapjait veszélyeztetik. És magasról szarnak a legjobbak által leírt és elmondott törvényszerűségekre kizárják őket mert mi az ő hatalmukat veszélyeztetjük.
Alattuk még van egy jó pár szint: a sima kegyetlenkedők szinje, akik használják a többiek félelmét arra hogy uralkodjanak felettük, a többi manipulátorral együtt, majd ezek alatt
tulajdonképpen egy zombicsora van, plusz a természeti népek elnyomott vagy elszigetelt marginalizált maradéka - akik nem összekeveredők a zombitömeggel, mert ők valamilyen szinten betartják a természet szabályait, anélkül hogy részben vagy teljesen tudatában lennének ezeknek (kanyini). Nekik azért nincs akkora erejük, mert ők nem használják. Azaz van, csak nem használják. Passzívak. Élnek. Egyensúlyban a belső és a külső környezettel. Gyakorlatilag a legjobbak közé tartoznak, ha teljesen tudatába kerülnek ezeknek a problémáknak és betartják a bonyolult rendszeren belül is az eredeti értékeiket. Ők sajnos könnyen manipulálhatóak és sokan komoly energiákat szenteltek annak hogy felforgassák ezeket a közösségeket is. Mára már nem létezik ilyen közösség érintetlenül.

Az idő rohamosan fogy. Vészjóslóan. S közben még mindig alig változott valami. Még mindig zuhanunk.

"And than I will show you how good we are..." ezt mondta Joe a kövér, aki egyébként nem is kövér hanem olyan vékony mint a legtöbb aki állandóan váltogatja a maszkjait...
De hazudtam neki is. A csávó aki az engem védő csapatban volt és pont felettem "vigyázott" rám azt a feladatot kapta hogy ne figyelmeztessen engem a veszélyre és hagyjon aludni egész pontosan adja le a drótot hogy mikor alszom és hol vagyok... Nos arra rájött az alatt a hét alatt és a felkészülési idő alatt, hogy Joe mindenkit megöl aki ilyesmiben részt vesz, hogy elrejtse a titkát és a külvilág előtt előadhassa az ártatlant. Tudta hogy ő is meghal. Ezért dobta a diót.
De hazudtam Joe-nak. Kipróbálta később és felrobbantotta a cuccot amit begyűjtöttek a világűrben, mert nem hitte el, hogy az képes felrobbanni egyáltalán. "És honnan fogjátok tudni hogy mire képes ha nem tudjátok közvetlenül mérni?" "Ne aggódj rengeteg kísérletet végeztünk más ilyen nagy volumenű bombákkal már van tapasztalatunk ebben." mondja a kollégájának...
Nos a pusztítás rádiusza sokszor nagyobb mint amit neki mondtam. Még bőven benne volt ő is... :-D Ha felrobbantotta volna itt az olyan lett volna mintha a hold belezúgott volna a földbe. Amerika egy része azonnal eltűnt volna és a többi esemény radirozott volna mindent.
Azzal a részeg csávóval még kisgyerek korában találkoztam és már akkor megépítettük a cuccot azaz én megépítettem, azután később még egyszer nekik. Nos Joe ezért nem ölt még meg vagyis ezért nem próbálkozik közvetlenül ezzel... meg másért is. Az emberei elhullanak neki is... How good we are. A diós csávó egyszer hátranézett mintha figyelné valaki hátulról, de nem látott senkit sem. Nos volt ott valaki közvetlenül mögötte. Az egész csapat - mind a három csapat ugyanabba az akolba tartozott. Elszeparálva kezeltem őket is.
George nem tudja megváltoztatni a szíritmusát... kell neki valaki segítsége ehhez valaki olyané aki van olyan jó olyan erős mint én. Bokor Gyuriként sikerült neki egyszer. A szarházi az marad szarházi hiába nincs mit tenni. De mégis megcsinálta az önfeltöltős elektromos hajtóművek bevezetését, de nem jóvátétel céljából... hanem azért hogy kihasználhassa ezt a katonai előnyt a következő háborújához...
A vér hatalma... hiába. A vér kötelez... szokták mondani. Igen megbéklyóz. Ezért ne mtörténik semmi a látható világban, semmi lényegi változás. Csak utcaszínház szintjén "beszélnek" silent talk azaz a hangtalan beszéd szintjén... "Ezért kezdett el mindenki beszélni hirtelen." Nos az én csapatom azaz mi ne mkommunikálunk egymással. Az az egész cirkusz ott George körül csak egy ügyes húzás volt miközben ők tényleg próbálták egymást eltenni láb alól, de Joe engem is szeretett volna egy csapásra elintézni vele együtt.
Joe most ezért kussol. Az emberei meg hullanak akik engedelmeskednek neki és támadnak tovább is engem és mindenkit aki követi az irányt amit én jól leírtam - a felépülés és a fenntartható élet alapvető feltételeinek a védelmét.

"Te is voltál abban a könyvtárban?"
"Igen. És bármikor megyek mindig előjegyzem magam a következő lehetséges alkalomra. legszivesebben ott töltenék egy évet hogy átnézzek mindent."
...
"Megtanulta a világ összes nyelvét, a saját hangjával vette fel a szövegeket."
...
"És emlékszel arra hogy hol van a könyvtár vagy hogy hogyan lehet odajutni?"
"Nem és ne mis akarok. Én bevezettem külön extra biztonsági intézkedéseket hogy senki se kövessen. Ha azok a dokumentumok eltűnnek akkor elveszi az emberi faj valós története. Soha ne mtudjuk meg az igazságot. És a pápa is hazudott, mindegyik a kezdetektől."
...
Úgy bizony. Ott van az István királyról szóló könyv is, összegyűjtöttem és összeloptam a titkolt magán és egyéb helyekről azokat a fontos bizonyítékokat amikért milliárdnyi embert mészároltak már le eddig is, amik tartalmazzák azokat a bizonyítékokat hogy hogyan kreálták a vallási tételeket a háttérből bizonyos uralkodó családok és azok "tanácsadói", hogy mit és hogyan hazudott több nemzedéknyi titkolózó "uralkodó" réteg az emberi pszichéről való tudásáról, a közös tudatról és tudatalattiról, telepátiáról és egyéb nem hétköznapi pszichés képességekről az inkvizíció valódi céljairól, a tudományterültek tudatos kontrolljáról, az oktatás elterjesztésének a céljairól a politikai berendezkedési formák tudatos szerkesztői elveiről amik a tömegek rabszolgaként való tartásának lehetőségeit célozták egyértelműen minden uralkodó család részéről és a többi. Sok olyan dokumentum is van ott amiből csak egy példány maradt a világon - egy eredeti. Csináltam sokukról másolatot úgyhogy ne mfog elveszni soha ez a tudás, de az eredeti példányok lehet hogy el fognak veszni. Igyekeztem úgy archiválni hogy ne sérüljenek és aki oda bejut az ne jöjjön ki élve ha kárt tesz bennük, mivel ismerem az összes technikájukat amijük van, úgy építettem fel a védelmi rendszert hogy mindet lefedjem - persze nincs tökéletes védelem és ha nem vigyáznak rá azok akik tudni szeretnék az igazságot, akkor elvész az eredeti csomag és nem fog senki sem tanulni a hiábinkból. A hazugságok nem fognak lelepleződni.

A megértés nem elég ahhoz hogy feljebb kerülj a pszichikai erő piramisának a szintjein. Joe abban téved hogy azt hiszi azok a kegyetlenkedők akik nem értik pontosan amit magyarázok nem lehetnek jobbak és erősebbek mint ők. De lehetnek. Mert ezek a törvényszerűségen nem általam íródtak - én írtam le és magyaráztam el őket - de ezek a pontos megfigyelésimet takarják és sok sok tapasztalatot. Hiába rendelkezik a legmodernebb technika és technológia felett és hiába olyan hiperintelligens és csavaros eszű - az emberei meghalnak és elpusztulnak amikor szembe találják magukat egy olyan csapattal akik a tetteiket alárendelik ezeknek a törvényeknek. Se a hatalmas pénzhalom, se a hiperintelligencia, se az iszonyatos méretű hálózat és zombihálózat nem menti meg azokat akik nem tartják be a természet törvényeit.
Továbbra se mozdul senki. De már elfogadtam ezt.

a gömzsik játszotta egyszer valamelyik rotchild családtagot is... "Azt hiszi nem fogjuk túlélni, ha ő meghal..." mondta és nevettek... Nem hiszem hanem tudom, gondoskodtam róla. Azok akik azt hiszik hogy Joe iszonyatos hatalommal bír a kezében lévő fegyverzet birtokában.. azoknak jelzem hogy azokat én fejlesztettem szinte mindet még ha sokat nem is én találtam ki de mindet továbbfejlesztettem. És csináltam olyan techikát és pusztítóerőt amit még ők sem értenek ma sem... mint pl azt a szerkezetet ami nem atombomba volt, a részeg csávó kvantum bombának nevezte... ami érdekes név de nem mutatja a fizikai fogalmakat ami alapján működik. És mindent kiszedtek belőle később, mégse értették meg mit zagyvál össze. Mert a tudomány ami a kezükben van hazug és nem fedi a valóságot, a valóságról szóló tudományokat meg irtják és eltapossák.

Mint mondtam a sikeres beépüléshez többet kell tudnod a célcsoportról, mint azok tudnak önmagukról és a világról.
Én beépültem ebbe az önmagát legyilkoló és újraalkotó maszkos karakterépítős tudatmanipulátor circus-ba. Mindent megtanultam róluk. Azt is tudom hogy melyik hogyan reagál és mit fog tenni. Persze ez nem jelenti azt hogy a tervem egy szabad és a szeretetre alapuló világ megteremtéséhez sikerrel fog járni, ezt ugyanis egyedül ne mtudom megoldani hiába minden tudás. És nincs senki sem aki átlátná és értené vagy meg tudná oldani a szemét eltakarításának és a jó védelmének a feladatát.
Nem mindenki képes olyan fokú érzékenységre hogy képes legyen "hallani" vagy érzékelni mások gondolatfolyamát. Viszont vannak akik segítenek ezek közül is. Nekik írok. Nekik kell a narráció. A többi úgyis hallja ha figyel és továbbadja úgy ahogy hallotta, ha nem szarházi. Azok akik küzdenek ezért a célért, azok ugyanúgy közénk tartoznak és fontosak mint a többi. Mi tudjuk ezt. Ők úgy tudják, hogy azok akik nem hallanak azok alacsonyabb szinthez tartoznak... ezt hazudtam nekik, mert ők is hazudtak nekem. Nem az én célomért dolgoznak és nem osztják a felelősséget, csak kihasználni akartak és elpusztítani utána.
"De tiszta részeg és ő nam hall minket..."
George és Joe együtt zárták le az USA-t a szinetáros GB-s film után amikor otthagytam őket.
Ez az egész circus tulajdonképpen egy hullámzó rothadás. Időnként valamelyik kiemelkedik és tanul valamit majd alkalmazni kezdi, akkor a többiek összefognak és megölik megállítják, hogy ne emelkedjen a szint és ne nőjön senki se a fejükre, mert amint ez megtörténik az akinek előnye van a többit elkezdi megölni a pénzüket elvenni és elnyomni. Ez így működik. Miért nem fogynak el? Mert az alattuk lévő massza nem érti mi történik, nem értik hogyan működik a közös tudat, nem érti még azt sem hogy van telepátia és gondolatolvasás, és napi szinten küszködik a megélhetéséért a legtöbb mire annyira belefárad hogy nincs is kedve nagyon gondolkodni sem a nagy dolgokon. És pontosan ezért is tartják lent őket azon a szinten a circus tagjai. Egymást is megölik és újraalkotják. Csinálnak egy maszkot és belebújtatnak valakit. Szinte bárki hangját le tudják utánoznni megtanulják a mikro és makro mozgásait, az élettörténetét és eljátsszák a szerepet. Azután a kigli aki ezt csinálja ha véletlenül jobbá válik és önállósodik - nem tudják tovább irányításuk alatt tartani - akkor megpróbálják megölni ha tudják és újra belehúzni valakit aki nem olyan jó. És ez így megy körbe körbe miközben a felelőtlenségük folytán tönkreteszik a földi lét alapfeltételeit.

Hallgatnak a könyvtárban tanultakról. Pedig mind emlékszik rá hogy mit talált ott. Mégis közösen hallgatnak. Egy dolog került ki nemrég egy homályos utalás formájában. Sokéig azt tanították mindenkinek hogy a "föld tömegvonzása"... nos az nem tömegvonzás. A tömegnek nincs ehhez semmi köze. Azt mondták hogy: a föld elektromágneses tere"... kicsit közelebb a valósághoz... ez is egyébként egy ilyen tudományos szabadkőműves páholy vesszőparipája volt: a tömegvonzás... ők irtottak minden ellenkező véleményt és beleverték mindenki fejébe már a századelőtől a közoktatás elterjesztésétől.
Szóval egy két elme azért megpróbál valamit... de hát ez édeskevés... nagyon nagyon karcsú.

"I trust noone!"
mondtam akkor... és ez egy üzenet volt akkor a többieknek akiket ők nem ismertek. Mert nekik azt magyaráztam, hogy mi egyek vagyunk, mert egy irányba tartunk és egy célért dolgozunk... ezért we are one. Amikor szóltam Joe-nak hogy én külön fogok irányítani egymagam... akkor is több szinten kellett levágnom őket. Először is a satellite link amit ők biztosítottak a vezérlő központhoz, egy decoy helyszínhez volt csatolva, amit szintén megvédettem a sajátomnak jelzett csapattal, akik szintén beépülők voltak... A Joe emberei... "sl10 to cb5, le4 to sh10, sh5 to if6..." soroltam a pozícióváltásokat "cb5 innen nem látom a gh szektort egyáltalán" "de én igen. nyugi tudja mit csinál. csak széthúz minket hogy betömje a lyukakat." nos ilyet a legjobbak nem csinálnak... bocsi ez amatőr húzás volt nagyon
Joe eljátszotta most a halálát, de nem tud elbújni és parancsolni se fog többé csak hulláknak...
"De azt ondtad hogy ne you trust noone..." "Igen." "De miért mondtad ezt? Nem bízol meg bennünk?" "Dehogynem - hazudtam - ti tudjátok hogy mi a helyzet nem? Egy célt követünk és azért dolgozunk akkor mindegy hogy ha félrefogalmazok valamit nem így van? Talán én nem hibázhatok?" "De lehet hogy manipuláltak nem?" "Lehet hogy Joe-nak van akkora ereje hogy meg tudja ezt oldani. De ez semmiség." altattam el a gyanakodó "segítőt" aki végig Bush mögött adta a tanácsokat neki...
"És akkor megöllek."
"Meg akar ölni."
"Á szerintem csak dramatizál. Szereti a nagy drámai hatásokat. Kérdezd meg hogyan!"
"Hogyan?"
 "A timeline akor indul amikor átléped a rezidenciád küszöbét. az jelenti a nulla óra nulla percet nulla mésodpercet. Ez kb ekkor és ekkor lesz tekintve, hogy ennyi és ennyi idővel szoktál előbb elindulni ha nem akarsz elkésni valahonnan. Az aznapi programodat fixálni kellene hogy ne változzon. 7 másodperc amíg kényelmes a szokott tempódban beszállsz az autóba és becsukod az ajtót. Elindultok."
"Úristen lehet hogy ő is ennyire kegyetlen volna hogy ennyire részletesen megtervezi a megölését?"
"Az autóban lesz egy titkos doboz..."
"ahhh, there you go... mondtam hogy dramatizál..."

Próbálkoznak olyan motor váz készítésével amit építettem az air combat controllereknek...
"You made the steel too? Is that true?"
"Yes."
"De chip nem mondta ezt."
"Tudom."
"De miért nem szóltál?"
"Mert tudni akartam hogy mikor veszitek észre hogy átver benneteket."
"De ebbe belehalhattunk volna."
"Igen. De a birka aki hazug vezetőt követ - bármiylen ravasz is a megvezető - nem érdemel mást."
"De milrt csináltad te magad az acélt?"
"Azért mert az ilyen fizikai terhelést csak a legjobb minőségű acél bírja ki. És addig akartam kitolni a fejlesztést amit a természet és a rendelkezésre álló anyagok engedik. Ezeknél a cangáknál jobbat ne mog építeni senki. A legjobb acél legvégső terhelési határait akartam elérni ezzel."
"De nem jó az az aél amiből régen csináltuk a motorokat?"
"Hát ugrattatok ekkorát bármikor is a csoport történetetében?"
"Hát volt egy ilyen eset. igen."
"És kibírta a váz?"
"Hát a leérkezést még igen, de eltörött és a következő kanyarban szét is esett. De az életemet megmentette."
"Akkor az tényleg elég jó minőségű acél volt, de én mindezt kitoltam a legvégső határig."
"De hogyan?"
"Hát tudnotok kell midnent az acélról. Honnan bányásszák, milyen szennyezésik vannak azt hogyan lehet megállapítani hogy mi van benne, és hogyan lehet javítani a minőségét stb. Hogyan lehet tesztelni stb."
"Akkor ezt mind meg kell tanulnunk."
"Így van."
"Akkor tanítsd meg! És akkor egyébként miért hagyod hogy chip hazudjon és mire kell még ez a karakter?"
 "Chipnek még van egy pár fontos feladata. De már ti magatok is megöltétek egy párszor, mert hazudott. Tudnotok kellett volna hogy nem lehet megbízni benne. Csak azért csináltam, hogy az elején segítsen nektek mert szükségetek volt rá de ma már nincs rá szükségetek és teliszarták a szarházik minden szeméttel. De még most is segít sokszor, csak ki kell válogatnotok hogy mi szemét abból amit mond és kiderítei hogy mit hallgat el."
És megmutattam nekik mindent, mindegyiknek építenie kellett egy kiváló vázat fémhulladékból nem labor körülmények között, hogy a szemétből is meg tudják építeni. Mert ha onnan meg tudják akkor laborban is tudni fogják. vasak fajtái, lel
          FAKE SCIENCE dominates Florida. Bullsugar explains it all for you ... by gimleteye        
NOTE: The heart of Florida's water emergency is the sacrifice of the public interest by Gov. Rick Scott and Republican aspirants including Adam Putnam and their embrace of FAKE SCIENCE. That is to say: using science to fit predetermined outcomes instead of letting science instruct policy. It is no coincidence that President Trump has embraced the same enthusiasm for FAKE SCIENCE.

There is only one way to put this lethal idiocy to rest: voters must to make their decisions based on the priority of removing the GOP from power in the state legislature and in Congress.

2018 is just around the corner. Be informed, now.

Last week, and three years running now, Lake Okeechobee was covered in blue-green algae. In 2015 and 2016, it turned into extremely toxic cyanobacteria. In 2017, it will in all likelihood do the same.

Fortunately, initial FDEP test results have not detected toxins in the water yet. However, a bloom that tests non-toxic one day can turn toxic the next. We need frequent, scheduled testing with published results so we know as soon as the water is unsafe to touch.
In 2015, Bullsugar.org broke the story on social media. Once it was public, Joe Negron told the Army Corps to close the locks, and they did -- for a whole two days, before resuming the dumping at high volume.

In 2016, the bloom was visible from space, and the toxic discharges coated our estuaries and beaches in putrid "guacamole-thick" slime.

While this created a national embarrassment for Florida, and awoke many to the links between cyanobacteria and scary diseases like liver cancer, Alzheimer's and ALS -- some of sugar's closest friends (like US Rep Tom Rooney) continued to insist "Lake O was not toxic" and Martin County septic tanks were to blame for the toxic mess.

To which everyone with a brain, eyes and a conscience said, ahem, "Bullsugar."

So now the Lake is once again covered in blue-green algae.

Thanks to Jacqui Thurlow Lippisch and her husband Ed for this shot

After three years in a row, isn't it clear that The Weather Channel got it right last December -- Lake Okeechobee has a toxic algae problem?

Can we agree it is immoral and unacceptable to discharge toxins on the nearly million people who live, work and play along the path of discharges to the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee, let alone without warning them? In 2017, in the United States of America?

Can we agree that it would be criminally negligent to delay the solution, or only do a half-way solution? That $20 billion worth of Everglades Restoration needs a written goal of "Zero Toxic Discharges?"
Is there a Florida politician who will introduce legislation with these 4 points?
  1.  Our government shouldn’t poison us.
  2.  If our government must poison us because the plumbing is broken, warn us first.
  3.  CERP is a $20 BILLION project, and counting. Fix the plumbing so you don’t poison us anymore, and do it as fast as possible.
  4.  We (the taxpayers and the ones being poisoned) expect and deserve #3 in writing.Make it a written goal of CERP. Zero Toxic Discharges.
Due to a dry spring Lake O is not yet high enough for another bout of toxic discharges this year, and for that we are grateful. The Toxic Summer of 2016 was one we don't want to repeat ever again.  But what about the people who live, work and play near Lake Okeechobee?
Last year, the sugar industry called us "rich, coastal elites" for complaining about the slime, and said we were trying to use the algae bloom to attack Glades residents. As we dealt with the green slime, we did not feel "elite." Our aim was not to destroy others but to protect our residents against what has clearly been identified as a serious public health hazard.
On the coasts, local county health departments warned people to stay out of the water and avoid eating fish from the estuary.

Local coastal county health departments warned people to stay out of the water
As far as we know, there were no such warnings on Lake Okeechobee where there was a 200 square mile toxic algae bloom. Children played in the water at lakeside beaches. Residents and tourists ate the fish from the Lake. Workers in the EAA dealt with irrigation water from the Lake.
Those who claimed that they were the ones who cared about Glades lives -- Glades Lives Matter, Clewiston Chamber of Commerce, Lake O Business Alliance, EAA Farmers and many others -- completely ignored the health threat to the nearly 100,000 souls living around the Lake.
The coasts might (or might not) dodge the bullet of toxic discharges this year, but we are concerned about the long term health effects of the current lake bloom on all those who live around the lake and who visit the lake.

As Jacqui Thurlow-Lippisch so eloquently stated in her blog last week:
“I happened to notice when I visited the DEP website that DEP states:  â€œBlooms are naturally occurring.”  â€¦Yes this is true; so is cancer."
It is way past time that state and regional officials implement a plan for tracking, testing, and research that protects everyone exposed to these blooms. This is not about coastal residents vs. farmworkers. This is about all of us.

          How to Score More Impulse Sales with Report Summaries        

For this edition of The Copywriting Tune-ups Blog, we makeover a report summary from The Aberdeen Group . Clients of The Aberdeen Group are vendors of information technology (IT) products and services. With the market research and business strategy services of The Aberdeen Group, they attain leadership status in emerging markets.

While this particular summary of "e-Learning in the Enterprise " is dated, the business points it makes are truer today than ever. Moreover, the need to write clear, crisp literature is timeless.

Previous tune-ups show B2B marketers how to embrace the second person voice while maintaining a respectful corporate tone. Since this is a report summary, second person voice is not an option. Still, the summary acts as a "sample taste" of what purchasers of the report can expect for their money. For this reason, the summary plays a marketing role and must entice readers to buy the report.

Size-up your Audience and the Point of Sale

The audience for Aberdeen Group offerings is most likely to be educated and upwardly mobile. This means it's reasonable to assume purchasers of a report see themselves as rational consumers. Still, since the sale is happening online, impulse plays an important role in the buying decision. Summaries which are easier to read mean more sales of reports for The Aberdeen Group.

Copywriting Tune-up

The challenges for this copywriting tune-up are:

  • Eliminate wordiness
  • Make it easier to read
  • Whet the reader's appetite to buy the report

Before

After

Employee training is a major issue — and expense — for today's enterprises, which increasingly recognize that their competitive economic advantage is related to education, knowledge, and training. As a result, there is a heightened focus on developing technical, professional, and managerial skills through the use of training and education, causing enterprises to invest increasing amounts of time, money, and effort in employee training. To keep up with stiff global competition and today's fast-changing technology in an Information Age economy, enterprises are trying to quickly and effectively train employees, while keeping expenses within reasonable limits.

The pace of change in technology is making continuous learning both more critical and more difficult. The nature of learning has changed in that enterprises must continuously and quickly train and update the skills of their employees, especially in critical professions such as information technology (IT), to keep pace with all the changes. The market is demanding true enterprise-level training and education solutions. Traditional classroom training methods simply cannot keep up with the vastly increased speed and flexibility needed to meet training and education requirements for businesses running on Internet time. Nonetheless, all of this training is expensive, and training organizations are often finding themselves under pressure to lower their costs by more efficiently delivering training.

For these reasons, enterprises are seeking alternatives to traditional classroom training, especially technology-based training (TBT) alternatives, such as e-Learning, computer training, and satellite video broadcasts. "TBT" refers to training through technological media that takes place in venues other than a classroom, including computers, television, audiotape, and videotape. Of the TBT alternatives, e-Learning is the most attractive alternative for enterprises and individual consumers because of its flexibility, convenience, cost-effectiveness, real-time interactivity and ability to leverage the power of the Internet.

 

 

 

Training employees is critical to the success of today's businesses. With their advantage in the marketplace hinging on education, knowledge and training, companies are committing more time, money, and effort to training. To rise to the challenge of stiff global competition and fast-changing technologies, companies strive to train their employees quickly and effectively while keeping their expenses in check.

As the pace of technological change quickens, it alters the learning challenges businesses face. The need to train and update employee skills quickly and continuously grows more urgent. This pressure is acute in professions like information technology (IT) which are on the front lines of technological change.

The market calls for speedy and flexible solutions to meet the demands of global companies. Traditional classroom training is unable to keep up and training groups seek more efficient ways to deliver training.

Training delivered in venues other than a physical classroom we refer to as technology based training (TBT). Among the possibilities are computers, television, audiotape, and videotape. TBT options include e-Learning, computer training, and satellite video broadcasts.

The most attractive alternative is e-learning because it is the most flexible, convenient and affordable. Also, e-learning is able to make full use of the Internet. This makes it easier to create and update interactive learning experiences.

 


Readability Statistics

The makeover is more readable by a ten-fold margin. Note the drastic reduction in length. The After summary has less than ¾ the number of characters. Several other changes are also likely to boost Aberdeen Group's conversion rate. These include:

  • More paragraphs for greater whitespace
  • More sentences with fewer words for easier reading
  • Smaller words for instant comprehension

Embrace Simplicity

Anytime someone views this summary, a sale hangs in the balance. Dense sentence structures hold back sales.

For example, the Before summary opens with an excellent point but dilutes it with an interruption ("— and expense —"). Following the interruption with a complex clause exacerbates the problem. The noun "advantage" is front loaded with a double adjective, "competitive economic." This wordy noun leads into a list of three more nouns to finish the sentence. The After summary breaks these concepts into sentences of their own for easier reading.

Keep Subjects and Verbs Clear and Connected

The second Before sentence begins with, "As a result, there is a heightened focus on developing training…" Who is the subject? By leaving the subject vague, we force readers to think in abstract terms. The more "thinking" they have to do, the lower our conversion rate.

We may not be able to use second person voice, but keeping verbs prominent and closely tied to their subject is the next best thing. These verbs should be concrete and action-oriented.

The first verb in the Before summary is "developing" which leaves too much to the imagination. The After summary offers up "hinging" – a visual verb and it clearly ties back to the pronoun, "their." In the same sentence, we have another visceral verb in "committing." This verb belongs to the subject "companies" and covers the all-important ideas of time, money and effort.

Jettison Jargon, Cancel Corporate Speak

One over-used word in B2B marketing literature is "enterprise." What does enterprise really mean? Is it a code word for companies over a certain size? How do we measure size? Is it number of employees, yearly revenue, or something else? Do we implicitly exclude public sector and non-profit organizations when we use the word, "enterprise"?

All of this ambiguity surrounding the word "enterprise" promotes thought not action. "Company", "firm", and "organization" are concrete substitutes for "enterprise."

Another superfluous term in the Before summary is "Information Age economy." By the time this term appears, the phrases "stiff global competition" and "fast-changing technology" have already done a good job of expressing how urgent it is for companies to invest in their employees.

Focus on Flow and Repeat Only When Necessary

The second paragraph of the Before summary opens with another reference to fast-paced changes in technology and how they affect training. Figure the sharp Aberdeen Group audience already digested this fact in the first paragraph. By this time, the After summary moves on to discussing alternatives to classroom training as a nimble way to respond to these challenges.

Define Your Terms Upfront. Stay on Track for the Call-to-Action

The third paragraph of the Before summary gets pretty far along when it introduces the term "technology based training." This introduction uses examples before defining the term. Even if the reader understands the terms based on the examples, defining it afterwards may cause readers to second-guess their understanding. Again, the Before summary prompts thought instead of action.

The After summary begins its second-to-last paragraph with a definition of technology based training and it flows well from the previous paragraph's discussion of the need for alternatives to traditional classroom training. The next sentence reinforces the definition with examples. This keeps the reader engaged and moving on to our call-to-action without breaking the trance.

The Before summary should have had a 4 th paragraph starting with, "Of the TBT alternatives…" This section is the only one focused on the benefits a purchaser of the report is looking for in his or her organization. Consider this our last chance to trigger a buying impulse. Keeping it buried as the second half of an overly long paragraph makes a good conversion rate an uphill battle.

The After summary breaks out the benefits of e-learning into a final paragraph with only 3 short, but direct sentences. The benefits are easy-to-understand and free of jargon.

Bonus Tip - Use Simple Adjectives, not Abstract Nouns

The Before summary uses the nouns "flexibility, convenience, cost effectiveness." The After summary avoids the extra thought these nouns require. Instead, it achieves greater impact with their adjective forms – "flexible, convenient, affordable."

Wrap-up

It's easy to lose sight of the fact a report summary is marketing collateral as much as it is an abbreviated form of "product."

While using the second person voice is off limits because the report summary surveys a market, it converts prospects into customers when the writer:

  • Recognizes the impulse purchase behavior at stake
  • Uses clear subjects and verbs, simple adjectives, and minimal jargon or corporate speak
  • Drives the reader to action with a strong benefits-oriented finish

Spreading good copy beyond the traditional boundaries of marketing collateral can only yield, as legendary copywriter Clayton Makepeace says, "bigger winners, more often."

          Kingston Wi-Drive - PC Magazine        

Design, File Support, and Streaming
Flip over an older iPhone 3G or 3GS, and you could mistake it for the Wi-Drive. The small drive measures 4.8 by 2.4 by 0.4 inches (HWD), and won’t take up too much space in your bag. It has a minimal look, with a logo on its front along with a light that blinks when data is being transferred and LED indicators for Internet and device connectivity. The Power button lives on the right; it blinks when it’s charging and glows when it’s on. Otherwise, there’s not much to see here.

In my mind, the most compelling reason to buy the Wi-Drive (unless you bought a 64GB device and just really need more storage) is that it makes it easier to add content to your devices. Rather than relying on iTunes, managing your content is a simple, drag-and-drop operation. When you plug the Wi-Drive into your computer (PC or Mac), it shows up just like any other external hard drive, and you can drag and drop files right onto the drive. Kingston suggests organizing your files into folders like “Music” and “Videos,” but you don’t need to.

You can add any type of file to the drive, but you’ll only be able to stream files that iOS devices support. For me, that limit was felt most in video, since the Wi-Drive won’t play .AVI files. Music, images and documents are more versatile.

The companion to the Wi-Drive is a free app that connects to the drive and streams content. The app is where you control everything on the Wi-Drive, from setting an optional Wi-Fi password to upgrading the firmware. The upside is that the interface is better than just using a file manager, and initiating the connection is as simple as launching an app; the downside is that it means, at least until Kingston develops more apps, you can’t stream content to anything other than an iOS device (iPhone, iPod (ipod touch firmware 3.1.3 download) touch, or iPad).

Once you download the app from the App Store and install it, getting content playing is simple. Turn on the Wi-Drive, and wait for the blinking blue light that means it’s broadcasting. Go to Settings on your iOS device, and choose the “Wi-Drive” Wi-Fi network. (The Wi-Drive supports 102.11g and n.) Once you’re connected, just fire up the Wi-Drive app and it’ll automatically catalog what’s on your drive. (Once, I had the app hang while trying to look through the hard drive, but a quick restart solved the problem.) Select a file to view from the simple, list-based menu, and it plays back in the app.

Kingston Wi-Drive Screenshot

You can stream from the Wi-Drive to as many as three iOS devices, which makes the drive a perfect solution for family car trips. I tested that theory, streaming the same video to an iPad, an iPhone, and an iPod (ipod touch firmware 3.1.3 download) touch simultaneously. The Wi-Drive worked well, and streamed to all three devices without any noticeable drop in quality. There was, however, a longer buffering period when more than one device was connected, as well as the occasional stutter in playback that I never encountered with only one device connected.

The Wi-Drive is rated for four hours of playback, which was close to what I experienced during testing. Because Wi-Fi streaming can be a power suck, be aware that it will also decrease your device’s battery life; using the two together is not a long-lasting solution. The Wi-Drive charges through its USB port, so it’ll charge and sync at the same time.

There were a couple of other, mostly minor issues, that I encountered when testing the Wi-Drive. When you plug the Wi-Drive into a computer, it stops broadcasting its wireless signal, and my devices would revert back to the Wi-Fi network they were connected to before, forcing me to re-connect manually once the Wi-Drive was unplugged. You can, fortunately, still access the Internet on your device while connected to the Wi-Drive, since it has a Wi-Fi passthrough feature. You’ll see serious speed drops, though. This is definitely a more useful device when there’s no other Wi-Fi connection around, but how often is that the case? The Wi-Drive also got a bit hot while streaming, but not problematically so.

The Wi-Drive is a handy gadget to have if you need more storage, want a backup of important files, or want to stream a movie to all your kids’ devices at once. AT $ 150 or $ 200, though, it’s an expensive add-on, especially when you compare it to traditional external hard drives. For the price you’re better off with a drive like Seagate’s GoFlex Satellite Mobile Wireless Storage ($ 199, 3.5 stars), which packs a lot more storage (500GB), supports more devices, and performs better as a regular external hard drive.

The China-US Maritime “Spying” Debate

Aug. 04, 2017  |     | 

 

  http://www.ippreview.com/index.php/Blog/single/id/522.html

The Australian Department of Defence confirmed that last week a Chinese Dongdiao-class Auxiliary General Intelligence (AGI) vessel monitored the US-Australia Talisman Sabre joint military exercises from within Australia’s 200 nm Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). This “first-ever” Chinese incursion of its type in Australia’s EEZ has sparked both alarm and an international debate. Many say China is hypocritical because it is undertaking intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) missions in other countries’ 200 nm EEZs while opposing those of the US in its own EEZ. But there are significant differences in scale, technological capability, methods, and objectives between what China and the US are doing.

China’s first “public” attempt at maritime spying in the US EEZ was when an uninvited People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) AGI vessel operated in Hawaii’s EEZ to observe RIMPAC 2014, a multinational naval exercise. Also in 2014, a Chinese AGI vessel was observed off Guam during a US military exercise. According to then-Commander of the US Pacific Command (PACOM) Admiral Samuel Locklear: “The good news about this is that it’s a recognition, I think, or an acceptance by the Chinese of what we’ve been saying to them for some time, [which] is that military operations and survey operations in another country’s EEZs, where you have national—your own national security interest, are within international law and are acceptable.” But such simplistic comparisons are deceptive and potentially dangerous. They can lead to the false hope that China will eventually “see the light” and quietly assent to activities it considers threatening because “it is undertaking similar activities.”

But the scale is very different. Ironically, the “different scale” argument was first used against China by China critics to demonize its occupations and “militarization” of features in the South China Sea. Although these critics grudgingly acknowledged that China was not doing anything other claimants had not done, nevertheless China’s behavior was singled out as unacceptable because of the much greater scale and “aggressiveness” of its activities.

It seems that the tables are now turned. Although the critics argue that China is doing “the same thing” as the US, the scale of US ISR missions against China is probably an order of magnitude greater than that of China against the US. For example, as of 2017, PLAN had only three AGI vessels. Of course, China also has ISR planes, drones, and satellites but their number and capabilities pale in comparison to those of US assets.

Indeed, the US has a huge array of ISR planes, surface vessels, submarines, and drones — many of which, like the subhunter Impeccable, have specialized functions. The US has by far the world’s largest and most capable force of signals intelligence (SIGINT) aircraft. Moreover, most of the US Navy’s top-of-the-line combatants like the Ticonderoga-class cruisers and the Arleigh Burke-class destroyers as well as its submarines are equipped to carry out SIGINT missions. Further, no other country matches the US’ number and array of robotic aircraft and seacraft (drones), particularly in terms of their range and advanced weapons and sensors, coupled with the necessary satellite and telecommunications support systems. US satellite IRS capacity greatly exceeds that of China. In terms of deployment, the US flies hundreds of manned ISR missions every year along China’s coast. There have been no public reports of similar Chinese aerial ISR missions off the US mainland coast.

Technological capabilities, techniques and objectives are other major differences. Yes, China does insert ISR platforms into other countries’ EEZs — like that of Japan. But it is likely that Chinese technological capabilities and activities in terms of intrusive methods used and information obtained are so substantially inferior to and different from those of the US as to be in a separate, much lower category, e.g., passive listening versus active probing or electronic interference with, and even manipulation of, communications.

But this is unconfirmed because the US is not being “transparent” when it comes to ISR capabilities. Again ironically, Locklear said of China’s military modernization: “What we should be concerned about though is what we perceive as a lack of transparency on their part in why they are building the type of systems they are building. Quite frankly, it makes their neighbours nervous and it gives us some cause for concern here at PACOM about the type of military they are building and the type of equipment they are buying.”

A confidential US Navy-National Security Agency (NSA) report revealed by Edward Snowden shows that China’s concerns regarding America’s ISR missions off its coasts are justified.

But in the case of ISR, it is the extent of capabilities that is not publicly known. To convince sceptics that there is anything near parity between Chinese and US ISR capabilities, those making the “China does the same thing” argument — especially those in the US Navy, need to reveal exactly what it is that the US is doing in China’s near seas so that all can evaluate it for themselves. Otherwise their arguments will fall on deaf ears, and independent and neutral analysts can only speculate based on what little is known.

In general, it is known that US ISR assets collect communications between the target country’s command-and-control centres and radar and weapons systems, including surface-to-air missiles, anti-aircraft artillery, and fighter aircraft. Other US ISR probes collect “actionable” intelligence for expeditionary and irregular warfare.

Incidents involving ISR aircraft like the EP-3 and the Poseidon 8A, as well as the US Navy ships Bowditch, Impeccable, and Cowpens, may have collectively included active “tickling” of China’s coastal defences to provoke and observe responses, interference with shore-to-ship and submarine communications, violation or abuse of the consent regime for marine scientific research, damage to the environment, and tracking China’s new nuclear submarines for potential targeting.

If so, these are not passive intelligence collection activities commonly undertaken and usually tolerated by many states, including China. Rather they are intrusive, provocative, and controversial practices that may be considered a threat to use force or violations of both China’s marine scientific consent and its environmental protection regimes. This could occur when and if the Poseiden 8 drops sonobuoys (which are part of its repertoire) or the Impeccable and Bowditch deploy “scientific instruments” in China’s EEZ. Indeed, China’s EEZ environment may be degraded if US sonar systems or live fire exercises adversely affect fish and mammals like whales and dolphins.

But much of this is unconfirmed. What do we — the public — know?

A confidential US Navy-National Security Agency (NSA) report revealed by Edward Snowden shows that China’s concerns regarding America’s ISR missions off its coasts are justified. The 2001 report reveals that in the EP-3 incident, the crew was unable to destroy all the secret data and systems on board, and details the scope of secrets exposed to China.

The exposed information contained the fact that the US has “the ability to locate and collect transmissions to or from Chinese submarines and to correlate them to specific vessels.” The plane also carried data that clarified “how much the US knew about China’s submarine-launched ballistic missiles program.” Also, according to the report, as speculated, the missions spur targeted militaries to react, thus creating communications that can be intercepted.

So, it does appear that the US has a huge advantage over China when it comes to ISR. But unlike Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam, China does not oppose all foreign military activities in its EEZ without its permission. Nevertheless, China certainly does object by word and deed to what it perceives as US abuse of the right of freedom of navigation and a threat to use force.

In sum, China apparently believes that these activities violate the peaceful purpose and uses provisions of UNCLOS, as well as its UNCLOS EEZ resource rights and environmental obligations. China also thinks that the US is “preparing the battle field” and that this constitutes a violation of the UN Charter as well as UNCLOS. In particular, China alleges that the US is not abiding by its obligation to pay “due regard” to its rights and duties as a coastal state. Such due regard in the EEZ is required by UNCLOS for both the coastal state and the user state, but is undefined.

Whether these concerns are valid or not, China is probably not violating these UNCLOS provisions with its AGI vessel activities and the US may well be doing so — on a grand scale. The US may want to reconsider and modify its superficial and misleading argument that both are doing the same thing

          Chinese quantum satellite sends 'unbreakable' code        

Chinese quantum satellite sends 'unbreakable' codeChina has sent an "unbreakable" code from a satellite to the Earth, marking the first time space-to-ground quantum key distribution technology has been realized, state media said on Thursday. China launched the world's first quantum satellite last August, to help establish "hack proof" communications, a development the Pentagon has called a "notable advance". The official Xinhua news agency said the latest experiment was published in the journal Nature on Thursday, where reviewers called it a "milestone".



          Commenti su La scomparsa di Jacopo Castelfranchi di emanuele        
A Jacopo Castelfranchi sono in tanti a dovere qualcosa. Il sottoscritto non sfugge alla regola. Ero un outsider che veniva da Siracusa ed ho avuto attenzione e fiducia; da lui e da un Milano straordinariamente dinamica e inclusiva, come mi pare la città sia anche ora, sia pure tra qualche difficoltà e inevitabile travaglio, considerati i tempi. Facile essere debitori di qualcosa agli innovatori, a quelli che si prendono rischi, osano, vanno anche oltre i propri limiti. E' stato decisivo per me consoscerlo e lavorare per lui, potendolo vedere in azione più da vicino, facendo i famosi pranzi brainstorming alla Kambusa, andando qualche volta in 'pellegrinaggio' a Calco. Mauro ha raccontato tante cose della sua vicenda. Ma il nostro pezzo, quello di Millecanali, di Eurosat, di Din, di Tutto Tv satellite, lo capivi bene, che pur importante, era solo un tassello. Mi ha fatto un po' d'impressione che se ne sia andato pochi giorni dopo Daniele Piombi. Il sottoscritto li aveva fatti fatti incontrare all'inizio degli anni Novanta ed era nato l'Oscar delle Tv Locali, in qualche edizione corollario e in qualche altro vera parte integrante del Premio Nazionale, con tanto di ribalta tv sulla Rai, in un periodo veramente bello, divertente, ricco e fertile della nostra vita, della televisione italiana e del percorso di Millecanali. Che altro dire. Che mi auguro solo che ci siano tanti altri Jacopo Castelfranchi in giro anche adesso. Noi il numero uno, l'originale, abbiamo avuto il privilegio di conoscerlo e frequentarlo. Emanuele
          Five Best Electronics        
Here is a short list for the best electronics out there today. I'm thinking more home office users when I put this list together, so don't be PO ed if you're a network engineer or something.

Number 5.


The iPhone 3G
Few phones get it right. iPhone happens to have had a little time with their first generation and nailed it with the 3G. Its sleek style has been cloned in the Blackberry Storm, the LG Dare and the Samsung Omnia (which are decent phones for Verizon users). No one is near the place though that Apple is in offering applications (15,000 to date). One future pitfall though will be Apple's Nazi restrictions to application creation, which might affect its versatility. Not only that, but they have become very proprietary lately (not going to a universal charger). That kind of business philosophy may hinder their sales as competition flattens out across the world.

Number 4.


The Sonos music system
This one gets a D- for cost, but makes up with an A++ for everything else. I've talked about this one in previous posts, so 'nough said.

Number 3


The Epson Workforce 600 AIO wireless printer
Set up is a flash, WiFi networking doesn't let you down and the versatility is great. It is not clunky like many HP printers and the wireless capabilities are rated good to excellent.

Number 2


The Nuvi 265WT by Garmin.
This is the best all around GPS navigator available on the market. It isn't very pricey, but has a nice wide screen and turn by turn directions. Verizon's VZ navigator should just quit. For the price of a one year subscription you have this little dandy paid for and the best part is you don't have to look at your little phone screen. While number 5 on this list does include GPS, it doesn't have the great interface that Garmin does. Trust me, if you ever want to go geocaching or get up to date traffic with auto recalculating directions, this is it. Not only does it have the traffic updates, but it has blue tooth, songs and even picture capabilities. It doesn't get much better than this one without significantly increasing in price.

Number 1


The Linksys WRT 160N Wireless Router
You want something that has the power to get it done? Well look no further than this beauty. Want NAS (networked attached storage)? Well utilize its built in USB port you can power one, or with a USB hub, many external hard drives. Now you and your significant other don't have to worry about which files you stored on the laptop or on your desktop. Oh, and by the way, this router is backwards convertible, meaning you can run your old WiFi (G and B) network devices on it, no problems. When you are ready you can begin getting other things that can fully take advantage of the speed and versatility of an "N" type network.

Number 1A


OK, I lied. There are more than five on this list. The last one is a bonus, hence I call it 1A. It is the Logitech Harmony One Remote. Its the best fix for the five remotes that you have laying around your house. Its also miles beyond the universal remote that you have to find the code for your TV and half the time it doesn't work. Check it out on-line for more information, but it is super sweet and is programmed using your computer. For the ultimate is universal experiences, check out the entire line of Logitech Harmony remotes. I guarantee you won't ever worry about that remote boat ever again. Why is it so great? Well just use your computer to program what you use to watch a DVD with and your remote does the rest. Ready to watch, press the "watch DVD" button on the LCD screen and your TV will turn on, change to the correct input; your DVD player will turn on and open the tray; your sound system will change to the correct component; all you have to do is physically put the DVD in, close the tray and away you go. Plus, if you have an XBox this works with that too. XBox might have made the list too, but CNET did such a good job with it's latest Prizefight where it pitted XBox against PS3. Check it out if you have the time.

That about sums it up. Given today's economy, I wouldn't suggest going out and purchasing everything on this list because the total would be somewhere around $1650 and that's utilizing the saving power of Amazon.

Statement for the Record

Senate Select Committee on Intelligence

James B. Comey

June 8, 2017

Chairman Burr, Ranking Member Warner, Members of the Committee.

Thank you for inviting me to appear before you today. I was asked to testify today to describe for you my interactions with President-Elect and President Trump on subjects that I understand are of interest to you. I have not included every detail from my conversations with the President, but, to the best of my recollection, I have tried to include information that may be relevant to the Committee.

                    

January 6 Briefing

I first met then-President-Elect Trump on Friday, January 6 in a conference room at Trump Tower in New York. I was there with other Intelligence Community (IC) leaders to brief him and his new national security team on the findings of an IC assessment concerning Russian efforts to interfere in the election. At the conclusion of that briefing, I remained alone with the President Elect to brief him on some personally sensitive aspects of the information assembled during the assessment.

The IC leadership thought it important, for a variety of reasons, to alert the incoming President to the existence of this material, even though it was salacious and unverified. Among those reasons were: (1) we knew the media was about to publicly report the material and we believed the IC should not keep knowledge of the material and its imminent release from the President-Elect; and (2) to the extent there was some effort to compromise an incoming President, we could blunt any such effort with a defensive briefing.

The Director of National Intelligence asked that I personally do this portion of the briefing because I was staying in my position and because the material implicated the FBI's counter-intelligence responsibilities. We also agreed I would do it alone to minimize potential embarrassment to the President-Elect. Although we agreed it made sense for me to do the briefing, the FBI's leadership and I were concerned that the briefing might create a situation where a new President came into office uncertain about whether the FBI was conducting a counter-intelligence investigation of his personal conduct.

It is important to understand that FBI counter-intelligence investigations are different than the more-commonly known criminal investigative work. The Bureau's goal in a counter-intelligence investigation is to understand the technical and human methods that hostile foreign powers are using to influence the United States or to steal our secrets. The FBI uses that understanding to disrupt those efforts. Sometimes disruption takes the form of alerting a person who is targeted for recruitment or influence by the foreign power. Sometimes it involves hardening a computer system that is being attacked. Sometimes it involves "turning" the recruited person into a double-agent, or publicly calling out the behavior with sanctions or expulsions of embassy-based intelligence officers. On occasion, criminal prosecution is used to disrupt intelligence activities.

Because the nature of the hostile foreign nation is well known, counterintelligence investigations tend to be centered on individuals the FBI suspects to be witting or unwitting agents of that foreign power. When the FBI develops reason to believe an American has been targeted for recruitment by a foreign power or is covertly acting as an agent of the foreign power, the FBI will "open an investigation" on that American and use legal authorities to try to learn more about the nature of any relationship with the foreign power so it can be disrupted.

In that context, prior to the January 6 meeting, I discussed with the FBI's leadership team whether I should be prepared to assure President-Elect Trump that we were not investigating him personally. That was true; we did not have an open counter-intelligence case on him. We agreed I should do so if circumstances warranted. During our one-on-one meeting at Trump Tower, based on President Elect Trump's reaction to the briefing and without him directly asking the question, I offered that assurance.

I felt compelled to document my first conversation with the President-Elect in a memo. To ensure accuracy, I began to type it on a laptop in an FBI vehicle outside Trump Tower the moment I walked out of the meeting. Creating written records immediately after one-on-one conversations with Mr. Trump was my practice from that point forward. This had not been my practice in the past. I spoke alone with President Obama twice in person (and never on the phone) -- once in 2015 to discuss law enforcement policy issues and a second time, briefly, for him to say goodbye in late 2016. In neither of those circumstances did I memorialize the discussions. I can recall nine one-on-one conversations with President Trump in four months -- three in person and six on the phone.

January 27 Dinner

The President and I had dinner on Friday, January 27 at 6:30 pm in the Green Room at the White House. He had called me at lunchtime that day and invited me to dinner that night, saying he was going to invite my whole family, but decided to have just me this time, with the whole family coming the next time. It was unclear from the conversation who else would be at the dinner, although I assumed there would be others.

It turned out to be just the two of us, seated at a small oval table in the center of the Green Room. Two Navy stewards waited on us, only entering the room to serve food and drinks.

The President began by asking me whether I wanted to stay on as FBI Director, which I found strange because he had already told me twice in earlier conversations that he hoped I would stay, and I had assured him that I intended to. He said that lots of people wanted my job and, given the abuse I had taken during the previous year, he would understand if I wanted to walk away.

My instincts told me that the one-on-one setting, and the pretense that this was our first discussion about my position, meant the dinner was, at least in part, an effort to have me ask for my job and create some sort of patronage relationship. That concerned me greatly, given the FBI's traditionally independent status in the executive branch.

I replied that I loved my work and intended to stay and serve out my ten-year term as Director. And then, because the set-up made me uneasy, I added that I was not "reliable" in the way politicians use that word, but he could always count on me to tell him the truth. I added that I was not on anybody's side politically and could not be counted on in the traditional political sense, a stance I said was in his best interest as the President.

A few moments later, the President said, "I need loyalty, I expect loyalty." I didn't move, speak, or change my facial expression in any way during the awkward silence that followed. We simply looked at each other in silence. The conversation then moved on, but he returned to the subject near the end of our dinner. At one point, I explained why it was so important that the FBI and the Department of Justice be independent of the White House. I said it was a paradox: Throughout history, some Presidents have decided that because "problems" come from Justice, they should try to hold the Department close. But blurring those boundaries ultimately makes the problems worse by undermining public trust in the institutions and their work.

Near the end of our dinner, the President returned to the subject of my job, saying he was very glad I wanted to stay, adding that he had heard great things about me from Jim Mattis, Jeff Sessions, and many others. He then said, "I need loyalty." I replied, "You will always get honesty from me." He paused and then said, "That's what I want, honest loyalty." I paused, and then said, "You will get that from me." As I wrote in the memo I created immediately after the dinner, it is possible we understood the phrase "honest loyalty" differently, but I decided it wouldn't be productive to push it further. The term -- honest loyalty -- had helped end a very awkward conversation and my explanations had made clear what he should expect.

During the dinner, the President returned to the salacious material I had briefed him about on January 6, and, as he had done previously, expressed his disgust for the allegations and strongly denied them. He said he was considering ordering me to investigate the alleged incident to prove it didn't happen. I replied that he should give that careful thought because it might create a narrative that we were investigating him personally, which we weren't, and because it was very difficult to prove a negative. He said he would think about it and asked me to think about it.

As was my practice for conversations with President Trump, I wrote a detailed memo about the dinner immediately afterwards and shared it with the senior leadership team of the FBI.

February 14 Oval Office Meeting

On February 14, I went to the Oval Office for a scheduled counterterrorism briefing of the President. He sat behind the desk and a group of us sat in a semi-circle of about six chairs facing him on the other side of the desk. The Vice President, Deputy Director of the CIA, Director of the National CounterTerrorism Center, Secretary of Homeland Security, the Attorney General, and I were in the semi-circle of chairs. I was directly facing the President, sitting between the Deputy CIA Director and the Director of NCTC. There were quite a few others in the room, sitting behind us on couches and chairs.

The President signaled the end of the briefing by thanking the group and telling them all that he wanted to speak to me alone. I stayed in my chair. As the participants started to leave the Oval Office, the Attorney General lingered by my chair, but the President thanked him and said he wanted to speak only with me. The last person to leave was Jared Kushner, who also stood by my chair and exchanged pleasantries with me. The President then excused him, saying he wanted to speak with me.

When the door by the grandfather clock closed, and we were alone, the President began by saying, "I want to talk about Mike Flynn." Flynn had resigned the previous day. The President began by saying Flynn hadn't done anything wrong in speaking with the Russians, but he had to let him go because he had misled the Vice President. He added that he had other concerns about Flynn, which he did not then specify.

The President then made a long series of comments about the problem with leaks of classified information -- a concern I shared and still share. After he had spoken for a few minutes about leaks, Reince Priebus leaned in through the door by the grandfather clock and I could see a group of people waiting behind him. The President waved at him to close the door, saying he would be done shortly. The door closed.

The President then returned to the topic of Mike Flynn, saying, "He is a good guy and has been through a lot." He repeated that Flynn hadn't done anything wrong on his calls with the Russians, but had misled the Vice President. He then said, "I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go." I replied only that "he is a good guy." (In fact, I had a positive experience dealing with Mike Flynn when he was a colleague as Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency at the beginning of my term at FBI.) I did not say I would "let this go."

The President returned briefly to the problem of leaks. I then got up and left out the door by the grandfather clock, making my way through the large group of people waiting there, including Mr. Priebus and the Vice President.

I immediately prepared an unclassified memo of the conversation about Flynn and discussed the matter with FBI senior leadership. I had understood the President to be requesting that we drop any investigation of Flynn in connection with false statements about his conversations with the Russian ambassador in December. I did not understand the President to be talking about the broader investigation into Russia or possible links to his campaign. I could be wrong, but I took him to be focusing on what had just happened with Flynn's departure and the controversy around his account of his phone calls. Regardless, it was very concerning, given the FBI's role as an independent investigative agency.

The FBI leadership team agreed with me that it was important not to infect the investigative team with the President's request, which we did not intend to abide. We also concluded that, given that it was a one-on-one conversation, there was nothing available to corroborate my account. We concluded it made little sense to report it to Attorney General Sessions, who we expected would likely recuse himself from involvement in Russia-related investigations. (He did so two weeks later.) The Deputy Attorney General's role was then filled in an acting capacity by a United States Attorney, who would also not be long in the role. After discussing the matter, we decided to keep it very closely held, resolving to figure out what to do with it down the road as our investigation progressed. The investigation moved ahead at full speed, with none of the investigative team members -- or the Department of Justice lawyers supporting them -- aware of the President's request.

Shortly afterwards, I spoke with Attorney General Sessions in person to pass along the President's concerns about leaks. I took the opportunity to implore the Attorney General to prevent any future direct communication between the President and me. I told the AG that what had just happened -- him being asked to leave while the FBI Director, who reports to the AG, remained behind -- was inappropriate and should never happen. He did not reply. For the reasons discussed above, I did not mention that the President broached the FBI's potential investigation of General Flynn.

March 30 Phone Call

On the morning of March 30, the President called me at the FBI. He described the Russia investigation as "a cloud" that was impairing his ability to act on behalf of the country. He said he had nothing to do with Russia, had not been involved with hookers in Russia, and had always assumed he was being recorded when in Russia. He asked what we could do to "lift the cloud." I responded that we were investigating the matter as quickly as we could, and that there would be great benefit, if we didn't find anything, to our having done the work well. He agreed, but then re-emphasized the problems this was causing him.

Then the President asked why there had been a congressional hearing about Russia the previous week -- at which I had, as the Department of Justice directed, confirmed the investigation into possible coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign. I explained the demands from the leadership of both parties in Congress for more information, and that Senator Grassley had even held up the confirmation of the Deputy Attorney General until we briefed him in detail on the investigation. I explained that we had briefed the leadership of Congress on exactly which individuals we were investigating and that we had told those Congressional leaders that we were not personally investigating President Trump. I reminded him I had previously told him that. He repeatedly told me, "We need to get that fact out." (I did not tell the President that the FBI and the Department of Justice had been reluctant to make public statements that we did not have an open case on President Trump for a number of reasons, most importantly because it would create a duty to correct, should that change.)

The President went on to say that if there were some "satellite" associates of his who did something wrong, it would be good to find that out, but that he hadn't done anything wrong and hoped I would find a way to get it out that we weren't investigating him.

In an abrupt shift, he turned the conversation to FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, saying he hadn't brought up "the McCabe thing" because I had said McCabe was honorable, although McAuliffe was close to the Clintons and had given him (I think he meant Deputy Director McCabe's wife) campaign money. Although I didn't understand why the President was bringing this up, I repeated that Mr. McCabe was an honorable person.

He finished by stressing "the cloud" that was interfering with his ability to make deals for the country and said he hoped I could find a way to get out that he wasn't being investigated. I told him I would see what we could do, and that we would do our investigative work well and as quickly as we could.

Immediately after that conversation, I called Acting Deputy Attorney General Dana Boente (AG Sessions had by then recused himself on all Russia-related matters), to report the substance of the call from the President, and said I would await his guidance. I did not hear back from him before the President called me again two weeks later.

April 11 Phone Call

On the morning of April 11, the President called me and asked what I had done about his request that I "get out" that he is not personally under investigation. I replied that I had passed his request to the Acting Deputy Attorney General, but I had not heard back. He replied that "the cloud" was getting in the way of his ability to do his job. He said that perhaps he would have his people reach out to the Acting Deputy Attorney General. I said that was the way his request should be handled. I said the White House Counsel should contact the leadership of DOJ to make the request, which was the traditional channel.

He said he would do that and added, "Because I have been very loyal to you, very loyal; we had that thing you know." I did not reply or ask him what he meant by "that thing." I said only that the way to handle it was to have the White House Counsel call the Acting Deputy Attorney General. He said that was what he would do and the call ended.

That was the last time I spoke with President Trump.

          HISTORIADORES POR UN DÍA (EN LA BIBLIOTECA DEL MENÉNDEZ)        

1º DE ESO: TRABAJANDO LAS FUENTES HISTORIOGRÁFICAS EN LA BIBLIOTECA
Historiadores por un día. Trabajando las fuentes historiográficas en la Biblioteca es una actividad realizada por los alumnos de 1º de la ESO del IES Ramón Menéndez Pidal de Avilés dirigidos por sus profesores del Departamento de Geografía e Historia.

¿QUÉ SON LAS FUENTES HISTÓRICAS?

Las fuentes históricas constituyen la materia prima de la Historia. Comprenden todos los documentos, testimonios u objetos que nos trasmiten una información significativa referente a los hechos que han tenido lugar.



HISTORIADORES POR UN DÍA

A lo largo de la pasada semana, los alumnos de 1º de la ESO del IES Ramón Menéndez Pidal de Avilés han llevado a cabo un exhaustivo trabajo con las fuentes historiográficas del fondo bibliotecario de nuestro centro.





Han puesto “manos a la obra”, se han dividido en grupos de trabajo y se han transformado en historiadores en busca de documentos, artículos, fotos,… que pudieran aportar información a diferentes períodos históricos (Prehistoria, Mesopotamia y Egipto), para luego ordenarlos y presentarlos ante el resto de sus compañeros.




FUTUROS INVESTIGADORES
A la vista del éxito obtenido, parece que hay en nuestro instituto futuros investigadores que, con sus descubrimientos, podrían alterar lo que hoy sabemos sobre lo que fuimos y lo que somos.


          Google Earth, class is now in session        

So much of what students learn in the classroom—from social studies to history, science and literature—relates to a geographic place on Earth. Recently, we announced a new version of Google Earth, and since then, educators have been telling us what a valuable tool Google Earth is for their students. They use the “I’m feeling lucky” feature to inspire writing exercises, do research exercises with Knowledge Cards, and explore satellite imagery and cloud strata with their students. Now, to make it even easier for teachers to use Google Earth in the classroom, we’ve created a new “Education” category in the Voyager section, which includes new stories—complete with classroom activities—from National Geographic Society, PBS Education, HHMI Biointeractive and Mission Blue.

Edu-category600px.gif
Just click the new "Education" category on the Voyager homepage for new stories, complete with classroom activities for teachers

The National Geographic Society stories take students on adventures following explorers through the Middle East, India, and coral reefs. To supplement the experience, National Geographic Society created idea for activities that highlight a range of geographical concepts, such as interpreting land forms and comparing map projections.

With PBS Education, classrooms can go back in time and track the paths of famous explorers, from Lewis and Clark to the Vikings. As students follow along, they, in turn, become modern-day explorers.

HHMI Biointeractive and Mission Blue created Voyager stories more geared towards science and math. With HHMI Biointeractive, students join “Scientists at Work” as they investigate important problems, from endangered coral reefs to the Ebola outbreak. And Mission Blue’s story teaches students about the unique oceanographic conditions of Costa Rica thermal dome. Short videos and questions embedded in the stories will help guide students with their own scientific research.

Educators everywhere can find classroom activities (created by teachers, for teachers) at our new Google Earth Education website, and easily share locations and stories directly to Google Classroom. In addition, this week Google Earth will become an Additional Service for Google for Education users, which can be managed by IT administrators through the Google Admin console.

Google Earth was built to inspire curious minds to explore, learn and care about our vast, fragile planet. With these updates, we’re excited to make it easier for the next generation to see the world from a new perspective.

          Scientists on the Margins        
by
David Nobes
2005-01-30

INTRODUCTION

The World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) was convened in Geneva in December of 2003. When the World Summit was announced, many in the scientific community questioned why there was no clear or central role for science and scientists. Scientists at CERN, in particular, expressed their concerns because CERN, one of the premier international collaborative scientific institutions, is regarded by many as the “birthplace” of the Internet.

As a result of the interventions of scientists, the UN and WSIS Secretariat proposed to hold an additional, but separate meeting ahead of the World Summit - the Role of Science in the Information Society (RSIS). The Role of Science meeting was also held in Geneva, at CERN, immediately before the World Summit. Many who attended RSIS also attended the WSIS. (The RSIS website is still active, as of January 2005).

The RSIS was intended to provide a forum whereby scientists and science administrators could contribute to the ongoing discussions on the Information Society. The discussions focussed on information sharing - the mechanisms for such sharing, and the impact on society that information sharing could have, because it became quickly apparent that information sharing is one of the primary elements in what we have come to call the Information Society, which I will abbreviate here as IS. Information technology is abbreviated as IT.

At this point, it should be noted that many of the participants, this author included, wondered what influence we scientists might have on the larger World Summit. Because of its separateness, many attendees doubted, sometimes publicly, that we would have much impact on the main WSIS “event” (the term used on the website and in the printed material). Many felt that the meeting was nonetheless useful, but more for the informal networks and contacts that we made, rather than for the formal proceedings. This reflects the nature of the Internet and modern electronic communications, which was nicely and concisely described by Tim Berners-Lee, who developed the browser-based interface, the “World Wide Web,” now concomitant with the popular conception of the Internet. He portrayed the “essence” of the Web as “decentralized” and “fractal.” It was originally designed to fill a need to share information (“data”) that was different in nature, format, and style.

[ For a much different conception of a global informational network, albeit one that has yet to be put into popular practice, see the Home Page of Ted Nelson, eds. ]

At the end of the RSIS was a “Visionary Panel Discussion: Science and Governance.” Most of the panel members who discussed the future of the Internet used outdated and outmoded terminology and paradigms, and I think they missed some of the inherent anarchic and democratic aspects of the Internet. Many of us felt that the panel, with the exception of Berners-Lee, showed a lack of understanding of the Internet and the Web. Indeed, the character of the Internet and the Web in many ways reflect how human progress is made, whether we are discussing science or broader societal aspects. We take steps that wander up many blind alleys and false trails before hitting upon solutions to previously unsolved problems. The solutions are almost always imperfect and almost always later superseded by some better approach. It is necessarily unstructured and chaotic, as any creative activity will be. However, those involved directly, such as scientists, are often excluded from the decision-making processes, which tend to be dominated by politicians and bureaucrats who are in general sadly ignorant of science and its methods. I hope to expand on this theme in the report that follows. The issues raised are no less relevant and important a year on from the meeting. The most exciting and innovative projects described during the meeting emphasised the lack of centralized control over the Internet and the Web, and that such control is nearly impossible. We cannot control what people do with the Internet; instead the main issue should be about showing people how to use the Internet effectively and sceptically.

The structure of this report is simple. It follows the structure of the meeting, which was built around the central RSIS “themes”: education; economic development; environment; health; and enabling technologies. I summarise some of the main points and observations from each session, highlighting those talks, presentations and sessions that seem to have best captured the atmosphere of the RSIS and future of the Information Society.

OPENING PLENARY SESSION - “SETTING THE SCENE”

The opening plenary session comprised a series of presentations that ranged widely across the IS spectrum. Adolf Ogi, Special Advisor on WSIS to the Swiss Federal Council, officially welcomed the RSIS participants on behalf of Switzerland, the host country, and challenged the participants to promote “science for all, without boundaries.” He touched on the issues of control of technology and the role of infrastructure, and the costs associated with both. When we say “costs”, we mean both the cost to society as a whole and the cost to the individual. This becomes, then, a major concern in developing countries where personal monetary wealth is limited, and thus access to modern computing tools is limited.

Two speakers put the Role of Science in the context of the World Summit on the Information Society. Adama Samassékou, President of the WSIS Preparation Committee, addressed the gulf between the “haves” and the “have-nots,” using the now common phrase “the digital divide.” However, Samassékou went beyond these almost clichéd terms and viewpoints to discuss the traditional forms of knowledge, and how in the IS world oral traditions, and the information they transmit, are being lost, largely because we have not had a means to incorporate them into the technology of the IS. He emphasised the goal of a lack of boundaries for the sharing of information, and the need to promote the IS within an ethical framework. In this framework, he included environmental ethics. This theme arose again in the special session on the Environment in the IS.

Yoshia Utsumi, Secretary-General of the International Telecommunication Union, emphasised accessibility of IS, but his emphasis was on scientific access. This was perhaps a reflection of the audience, but was then limited in its scope, especially when considered in the light of some of the presentations that came later in the day. He noted the lack of scientific funding in the developing world, and the “problems” in science policy. My opinion is that “gap” may have been a more appropriate word, because few countries, developing or otherwise, have clear policies for the sharing of information, scientific or otherwise. Many that do have such policies, such as the U.S.A., obstruct information sharing for reasons of “security,” even though open access to data and information is often the best defence. However, as Utsumi noted, this was a beginning of the process of discussion and policy formulation.

After the two RSIS context speakers, we listened to three “keynote” speakers, each of whom gave brief talks: Dr Nitin Desai, Special Advisor to Kofi Annan on WSIS; HRH Princess Maha Chakro Sirindhom of Thailand; and Walter Erdelen, Assistant Director-General for Natural Sciences at UNESCO. These talks touched on issues of citizen-to-citizen communication and the “digital divide” (Desai), the lack of access to IT and concepts of sustainability in the IS (Sirindhom), and the environment (Erdelen).

Dr Esther Dyson, the Founding Chair of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), was listed as speaking on “the promise of the Information Society and the role that science and technology have played.” ICANN is the organisation responsible for mediating domain names. They do not assign names, per se, but monitor the process and the circumstances. They have little power, but unfortunately are often seen, incorrectly, as responsible for the current morass over domain names. Dyson did not speak on the listed topic, but instead talked about the role of scientists themselves, rather than some monolithic “science,” in the future of the IS. She also emphasised that we cannot solve the problems of the Internet in a question and answer session.

Finally, Ismail Serageldin, the Director-General of the Library of Alexandria, gave a PowerPoint presentation on the state of IT use at the Library. It is impossible to cover all of the material he (rapidly yet effectively) presented. The Bibliotheca Alexandrina is making use of IT in many ways, and to a large extent (their website is www.bibalex.org). Some of the problems and issues Serageldin identified for the RSIS were, to name a few:

* effective and accessible publication and dissemination of information, specifically research and the results of research;
* peer-review (or lack thereof for online publications);
* copyright and “fair use” of online materials; and
* Internet library loans.

He discussed the rise of anti-science movements, particularly in the context of fundamentalist religious groups, and both here and in his talk he noted that these were not only Islamic but also Christian fundamentalist groups. Some approaches they used to try to counter such movements were:

* the establishment of a BA science “supercourse”;
* reaching children with “My Book”, which placed the child within the book designed and partly written by the child using online resources; and
* the “Hole in the Wall” computer.

This last approach was particularly interesting and revolutionary. The concept is to place a PC secured into a recess in a wall, using a transparent cover to allow visibility and access to the touch screen. Results showed that illiterate people, especially children and young adults, were learning to read by working their way through Internet connections. They would begin by using the symbols to guide their way, but would eventually learn to decipher at least in part the messages that accompanied those symbols.

One unfortunate omission from the programme was the presentation by Tim Berners-Lee, who was delayed by a snowstorm in Boston, and did not arrive until half way through the second day of the symposium.

“THE FUTURE: What the Scientific Information Society Can Offer”

The next session was a bit of a misnomer. It was a mix of topics, ranging from GIS to technological access for urban and rural poor people to sociological aspects. The sociological paper was simply a written paper read aloud, with a singular lack of the use of any of the technology we had been discussing. The sociological presentation simply served to emphasise the growing gap between scientists and some social scientists, and made me uncomfortably aware of why the Sokal hoax had worked so well amongst the social science journals; the presentation was unnecessarily rife with jargon that obscures rather than informs.

As an aside, for those unfamiliar with the Sokal hoax, Allan Sokal is a Professor of Physics at New York University who submitted a hoax article, “Transgressing the Boundaries: Towards a Transformative Hermeneutics of Quantum Gravity” to the journal Social Text. As the Skeptics Dictionary says (http://skepdic.com/sokal.html):

The article was a hoax submitted, according to Sokal, to see “would a leading journal of cultural studies publish an article liberally salted with nonsense if (a) it sounded good and (b) it flattered the editors’ ideological preconceptions?” It would. Needless to say, the editors of Social Text were not pleased.

What Sokal was attacking was the view amongst some social scientists that “physical reality” is a social construct, whereas the existence of an external “world” is an underlying premise in science. There is insufficient space to explore this issue adequately here, but the reader is referred to the many websites dealing with the Sokal “affair” (especially, e.g., http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sokal_Affair and http://www.drizzle.com/~jwalsh/sokal/), and Sokal’s own site ( http://www.physics.nyu.edu/faculty/sokal/)

[ Amato writes at length of the Sokal Affair in sokal text: another funny thing happened on the way to the forum; and it is discussed in Kilgore’s review of Technoscience and Cyberculture, and Ciccoricco’s Contour of a Contour, eds. ]

In that session, nonetheless, were two presentations that stand out in my mind, those by Lida Brito, the Minister of Higher Education, Science, and Technology for Mozambique, and Onno Purbo, an engineer from Indonesia. Purbo talked about how to “Facilitate Fast and Self-Propelled Internet Access: Return to Society,” a presentation that was shifted from the second day into the first day’s programme. His presentation was, in many ways, a useful counterpoint to Serageldin’s, in particular the “Hole in the Wall” PC, noted above. Purbo obtains PC’s at low cost, usually sold cheaply or donated by large companies that are upgrading their computing systems. These PC’s are then made available in “classrooms” placed in poor urban and rural areas so that the local people can use the computers. They also learn to use the Internet. Purbo provides access by, as he put it, “stealing” open frequencies. He uses antennas ingeniously constructed from old tin cans; these are sufficient to provide the signal needed. He uses open source software, and emphasised that mass education is the key to providing a basic education to the broad populace.

His presentation also served to emphasise that education is crucial for informed and useful access to the Internet. Too many people, of whatever socio-economic level, “surf” the Net without any thought about the “information” they are obtaining. The websites they access are often a source of disinformation and misinformation. However, this also serves to reinforce the democratic nature of the Internet. We cannot control how people use the Web, and the fact that there are hundreds of sites devoted to Elvis may or may not be a sad commentary on our society, but it nonetheless also serves to show us how uncontrollable the Internet is.

I present the Elvis example, one noted at the meeting, not to denigrate the use of the Internet and the Web for such purposes. What it shows is that new technologies have become new instruments of entertainment, when the hope was that they would become self-directed teaching tools. My main point is that during many of the RSIS sessions, a number of our “elder statesmen” (and they were almost all male) talked about “control.” They seek to control access, information flow, and the development of the Internet. In this way, our “leaders” show their fundamental ignorance of this creature. I emphasise, again, Berners-Lee’s description of the Internet as a fractal and chaotic thing.

Brito’s presentation was, in contrast, a passionate “wish” list of what she would like to do and see happen, both in Mozambique and beyond. Her list was focussed around the themes of wider literacy and ” relevant ” knowledge.

The session ended with a panel discussion, ostensibly “Reflections on the Role of Science in the Information Society.” The participants each gave a short presentation, with a very brief period at the end for discussion. Most were much as expected, and a number were largely political in nature. One exception was Juergen Renn, of the Max Planck History of Science Institute and ECHO (European Cultural Heritage On-Line), who was concerned that the “core of cultural heritage is largely excluded from information technology” and noted how ECHO was formed to address this. He also briefly talked about the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities. (The full declaration can be found at: www.zim.mpg.de/openaccess-berlin/berlindeclaration.html). While the goals of the declaration are laudable, a number of participants were concerned about the lack of copyright protection, citing cases where work done by researchers in developing countries was plagiarised by researchers in developed countries.

So concluded the first day of the conference. A number of us noted a general lack of self-criticism in most of the presentations. There was a lot of vague language and abundant use of clichés, much “looking to the future” and long wish lists. The most exciting presentations, for me, were the ones that discussed concrete examples of taking IT to the broader populace, often in quite revolutionary ways, in all of the meanings of that phrase.

PARALLEL SESSIONS

I attended the session on “Contributions to Environment.” Other sessions were on Education, Economic Development, Health, and Enabling Technologies. All of these sessions had quite active online forums for discussion in the months leading up to the RSIS and WSIS symposiums, and the forums can be reviewed at the RSIS website. Most of us contributed to more than one online discussion group, but attended only one parallel session.

In the Environment session, most of the presentations focussed on technical and management issues. David Williams of EUMETSAT talked about the Global Earth Observation Systems and Strategies, focussing on data management and the move toward an Integrated Global Observation Strategy (IGOS), which seeks a comprehensive integrated effort. Such a move needs a “shared strategy,” and involves the participation of the UN, international scientific and research programmes, space agencies, etc. They seek to develop a common approach to surface and satellite observations. The international weather observation and forecasting network is one successful example where a common strategy and approach has been developed. Williams had many interesting and pithy quotes: “The world is full of data and short on information” is probably my favourite.

Patricio Bernal, of UNESCO and the IOC, talked about the Global Ocean Observation System (GOOS). There are regional GOOS “alliances.” New Zealand, where I am based, is a member of one such regional alliance. Bernal noted, however, that there needs to be an adaptation of international norms for data sharing to facilitate the further development of GOOS. This was a common theme that arose a number of times during the Environment parallel session, specifically, and the RSIS more generally. There are often conflicting protocols for sharing data and information and, as Williams’ quote illustrates, a set of data is not always usable information.

Josef Arbacher of the ESA talked about Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES), a programme for monitoring of regional development, management of risk, and the guidance of crisis management and humanitarian aid. The ESA aims to have full capacity by 2012-2015. The EU will be spending 628 million euros in the 2004-2006 fiscal period, rising to 5005 million euros by the 2007-2015 period. Again, the issue of data sharing and accessibility arose, in addition to questions of data verification and transparency of the process.

Stuart Marsh, of the British Geological Survey Remote Sensing Group, talked about Geohazards and the IS. He noted that citizens are the ultimate beneficiaries, and suggested that there are three main user groups of geohazards information: “responsible authorities”, scientists in monitoring and government agencies, and research scientists. They have different needs, e.g., baseline inventory of hazards, monitoring, rapid dissemination of information during a crisis, etc. He noted, as did the others in the session, the need for an integrated approach from surface to space, and the need for but difficulty in bringing together the different types of data. Again, this raised the issue of data management. Marsh’s presentation also highlighted, however, the gap in our knowledge about the scientific literacy of our public “authorities.” Those responsible may well be local or regional officials who are far removed from those who gather and use the data/information. These officials may have no understanding of the processes involved, and their concerns may in fact run counter to the actions that should be taken to avert a crisis. The current crisis in South Asia in the wake of the tsunami illustrates many of these concerns. An early warning system was not in place because of the cost (both for the infrastructure development and for ongoing support) and because of the lack of technical expertise to staff such an enterprise.

This illustrates a major gap in the entire RSIS - there was little or no consideration of how we get technical information to the public officials and to the wider population. The entire issue of scientific literacy was glossed over, and instead most presenters focussed on those who were trained to use the data, when, as I noted earlier, most people are using the Internet in an undirected and uninformed way, so that they are unable or unwilling to distinguish “good” reliable information from poor quality “information” or even from reports that were consciously devised to misinform the “public.”

After Marsh, Stuart Salter, who leads the Species Information Service (SIS) of the World Conservation Union (IUCN), gave probably the most thoughtful of the Environmental presentations. He discussed “appropriate technologies.” As an example to start off his talk, he mentioned an emergency in Belize where large volumes of vaccine were required, but which went bad because of a lack of refrigeration. Those providing the vaccine were unaware of such a lack; it never occurred to them that large parts of the world still lack refrigeration. He used this to highlight the problem when a network of scientists (who he described as “free spirited individuals”), give “information” that needs to be organised in a common format and then propagated up and out into the community. His premise was that complex ICT systems could allow a simple “front end” and often can be configured by users to suit their purposes. He noted the need to change the “paradigm” whereby scientists visit a country, do their research, then leave and publish the results, leaving no net results in the visited country. He emphasised the need for using scientists in regional networks, working in existing well-functioning scientific and conservation networks. Then the data are vertically integrated in a relational database, using a GIS format. This is the mode of operation used successfully by the SIS for decades. The data are controlled by the scientific community, and the quality of the data is overseen by Specialist Groups, of which there are 128 in the SIS. The data are continuously updated. The SIS has thus grown from existing networks, rather than imposed from outside, which explains why it has worked so well.

Finally, Luigi Fusco of the ESA talked about “Emerging Technologies for Earth Observation and Environmental Applications.” He used as his example the wreck of the tanker “Prestige” off the northwest coast of Portugal and Spain. He noted that the satellite data were insufficient to be used alone, and that a wide range of technologies and their associated data, from surface through to satellite observations, needed to be integrated in a complex information management system. This theme of the need for integration of different types of data and information from a range of technologies and scales of observation arose again and again throughout the session.

CLOSING SESSIONS

The closing sessions were in two parts: a series of summaries of the thematic parallel sessions were presented, followed by a “panel discussion,” closing remarks from the Secretary-General of the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and then the “Key Message” from the RSIS, presented by the Director-General of CERN. Given that the “Key Message” did not differ at all from the text circulated before the RSIS meeting, many of us wondered why we had spent two days talking about the various issues. We concluded that the greatest benefit may well arise from the creation of a network of individuals interested in the issues raised by the RSIS symposium.

The session summaries raised some common themes and issues. One of the primary issues is the integration and sharing of data within complex structures, and the desire to get IT into rural and poor urban communities. The goal to fight illiteracy, generally, and scientific illiteracy, more specifically, is a major obstacle in the building of an Information Society, which requires the wider availability and use of IT, from tertiary institutions everywhere, not just in developing countries, to remote communities.

Finally, the panel discussion amounted to little more than prepared statements from “elder statesmen” (men without exception, all elderly except for Tim Berners-Lee), and was perhaps symbolic of much of the meeting. Berners-Lee spoke for two minutes and encapsulated the essence of the Internet and the Information Society better and more succinctly than any other speaker. It is decentralized and “fractal” in its nature, and inherently uncontrollable and ungovernable. Yet so many of the politicians on the panel, for most were politicians, used outmoded and outdated paradigms and language in their politically motivated speeches. They kept talking about “governance” of the Internet and IT. I can only conclude that our political “leaders” have little or no idea about the Internet tiger they have by the tail. It is fundamentally an anarchic, often revolutionary creature, one that will refuse to be confined and controlled.

          Meet Gillette, your new government agency        

YAS

Got to love the TSA (<-- link love!).

I am on my way to Web2Expo. In the spirit of the Butterfly Effect, a car crashing into an aircraft in Paris delayed all flights from Israel to NY. That's a good start.

Spent hours on the phone, got on standby, bla bla, made it to an alternate flight (no, it wasn't easy), missed the connection to SF by 15 minutes, bla bla, new connection delayed by 1.5 hours (and still counting). But the real highlight so far was the TSA supervisor.

Following the New and Advanced "3-1-1" branded TSA rules about clear, 3 oz bottles, I did exactly that - got several clear 3oz bottles, and put the stuff that I need to take with me when I travel in them. And this was fine with the TSA during the last 3 or 4 trips.

But today, they realized that actually, since these bottles do not have a commercial company label attached to them, they don't know what its inside and therefore cannot allow them.

You have to ponder. Now, if I wanted to do evil, how hard would it be for me to take a commercial bottle with a nice label, empty it and fill it with a malicious substance?

And is Gillette now a government agency, in charge of approving liquid substances on board?

And by how much exactly did the cosmetics companies profits increase as a result of these amazingly smart decisions by the TSA?

          Poker Rust -- Possibly Burnout        
I haven't updated in a while until my previous post today regarding the WSOP Ladies Event (see below). I've had this nasty cold/flu that's been lingering for the past 6 weeks. I've been completely exhausted, although I am actually starting to feel much better this week.

It kind of put a damper on my poker volume this month. I believe there was a 6 day stretch in there where I didn't even sit at my computer at all nevermind log in to Stars. I probably haven't spanned more than 36 hours between log ins at any point in the last 5 years until this month. I just didn't have the will power to put in any sessions.

My break was somewhat mentally refreshing, but now that I'm back at it I'm feeling either a bit of rust, or perhaps it's cash game burnout. Either way my tilt meter has been off the charts and I haven't been able to get back in the zone I was in the past two months and decided I needed a change of scenery.

As per usual when I feel like this, I somehow immediately think PLO is the interesting choice only to be quickly reminded that this is not a game for someone looking for stability. So I've been dabling in SnG's again. I think what I like about them is that it negates the waiting game that you usually experience in cash games with rising blinds forcing the action. I like MTTs for the same reason but the time committment with usually nothing to show for it is a game breaker for me. I also seem much more capable of compartmentalizing a beat in an SnG as well and not letting it affect my other games.

I started with the $7 turbo 9-mans and ran like absolute death. I don't know how accurate or to what degree to trust the HM2 Luck Adjusted Winnings, but over my first 50 games (lol sample size) I was at +3% EV while at -65% reality.

I then decided to drop down to the $3.50 turbo 6-mans. I always did reasonably well converting FPPs into T$ in the 235 FPP Sunday Million satellites before Stars made the cash bonuses much more managable (yay result of my March IOM meeting presentation! toot toot!) and these are the closest thing I could find without playing the actual hyper-turbos as I wanted something with a bit more depth and ability to multi-table. I instantly flipped the switch and ran like god. My EV line is matching my results but I started getting dealt premiums left and right and getting them AIPF and holding a lot. Currently running at 26% ROI in those games over about 100 so far. I think I'm going to stick it out there for 1000 games and then move back up.

In that short time span the one thing I've learned so far is to really get a feel for how the final three is going to play out on top of the standard push fold strategy. With the $7's I think I was much too happy to push a tiny edge against wide range donks and maniacs only to end a ton of them in 3rd place on a 55/45. I've realized for this level I can abuse the weak tights to no end, but can sit back and outlast the shove calling fest of the people donking around and then outplay HU and tailor my three handed play accordingly.

I've created a spreadsheet with every 6+ man NLHE SnG variant which I'll add later tonight. Super handy if you're trying to figure out where to start by filtering for game formats, speeds or buyins to see what's available in that stream as you move up.

I'm sure I'll inevitably go back to cash games assuming the VPP fever catches up to me again. It just seems like right now games are super nitty and there's not much running between the European segregation and Zoom splitting the pool. So I'm not finding cash all that enjoyable which inexplicably makes me want to force action against nits -- a bad idea leading to tilt and punting more stacks.

Ideally I would like to put in a solid 5k games a step or two up the ladder before deciding which way I want to go.

          ORACLE Teaser: First Two Chapters        


 With the release of ORACLE only a week away, it seems like time to give folks a small taste of what to expect in this duology. Unlike most of my previous work, this story is told in multiple third-person points-of-view. There's no magic, but there is the magic of science and scientific theory, as well as some pretty nifty psi-abilities. Action, adventure, breaking-and-entering, sarcasm, and an android--what more could you want?

I hope you enjoy!


Chapter One

The straining engine of the approaching Ames moving van sputtered and hissed, barely making forty miles an hour on the winding mountain roads, and announcing its arrival long before white metal flashed in the trees below. Olivia Gellar braced her feet on the asphalt, adrenaline already spiking as the van drew closer, trundling its way up the mountain.

This job will be child’s play.

“Sixty seconds, Olivia.” Nick’s voice crackled in her ear. She’d left her partner higher up the west side of the mountain with binoculars and an excellent vantage point.

“Check,” she said. “Come on down.”

She took the earbud out, snapped it into an insulated case, and then tossed the case toward the side of the road. It hit the shoulder and bounced into a patch of grass, out of harm’s way. 

Time to work her magic. 

Olivia stretched her arms out to either side, palms forward, fingers splayed. She closed her eyes and concentrated. The orange behind-the-eyelid sun glare disappeared, replaced by a gray mist. She harnessed it to use with her unique talent. 

The short hairs on her arms and the back of her neck stood to attention, teased by the static field coalescing around her body. A sharp, familiar pain struck, as if a hypodermic needle had been shoved between her eyes. She pushed the pain and the gray mist forward, out in front of her like a negatively charged brick wall waiting for its opposing force on four wheels.

An engine roared and a horn blared. Scorching air blasted the bare skin on her neck, face and hands.

Olivia opened her eyes and saw the front end of the Ames van crumple as it hit the invisible wall, absorbing the brunt of its own kinetic energy. The van had barreled around the bend faster than Olivia expected and the remaining kinetic force slammed into her.. She flew backward several feet and struck the pavement ass first. The impact drove a shock up her spine, the air from her lungs, and the static field collapsed. 

The world tilted and looped, and she coughed until she could breathe again.

“Ouch.”

She forced her body to roll over so she could observe her handiwork. The wounded van stood sideways across the middle of the road, smoke rising from its mangled front end. The windshield had spider webbed, but not shattered. Acrid odors of burned rubber and motor oil tingled her nostrils and amplified the throbbing headache that only time would dispel.

“Olivia?” 

Nick sprinted out of the woods with a handful of broken twigs stuck comically in his wavy brown hair. He paused briefly to snag her earbud case out of the grass as he dashed toward her, barely sparing a careless glance at the van.

“I’m fine,” she said. Sort of. “Check the driver.”

He jerked left and slowed as he approached the van. Olivia kept her eyes on him as she struggled first to her knees, then feet, blindly picking a piece of gravel out of her throbbing elbow. Her stomach lurched, and she willed it away. An impact like that deserved a little upchucking, but she had a job to complete. 

Work now, side effects later.

Nick peered inside of the open passenger window. “Driver’s unconscious. His mind is pretty deep inside. He won’t be bothering us.”

“Good.” Olivia approached slowly, a bit unsteady, as if she was walking underwater. She crouched and peered beneath the van. “No gas leaks, so just leave him there. He’ll be fine. Until Mitchell gets his hands on him, anyway.”

Nick grunted. 

They met at the back of the van. Olivia wrapped her hand around the padlock securing the rear door. Nick’s hand drifted to her lower back, the simple touch centering her addled mind. Through the haze of pain, she pulled from the mist and her own inner reserves. The metal lock heated. Hotter, hotter, until it snapped and hit the pavement with a soft clatter. Nick tugged the lever. The door scrolled up.

Unventilated air wafted out and sunlight poured in, illuminating the interior. Reinforced with aluminum sheeting the walls resembled a Jiffy Pop popcorn pan. A hospital gurney stood bolted to the floor in the center of the storage space.

Olivia climbed inside, pulse racing. McGreary’s information had been correct about the time and place of transport. She just wished that his knowledge of the cargo had been wrong.

A teenage girl was strapped to the gurney, her narrow body covered by a thin, white sheet. Shorn close, her hair color was impossible to discern. Cheekbones protruded sharply beneath translucent skin, an awkward contrast to her thick, overdeveloped brow ridge, giving her youthful face a hawk-like appearance. Her chest rose and fell in a steady, sleep-induced rhythm.

“Is she drugged?” Olivia asked. Her voice echoed painfully in the metal cocoon.

Nick stepped to the opposite side of the gurney. He touched her cheek, concentrating with his own unique talent. “Yes. She’s deeply unconscious, O, I can’t reach her.”

“God damn them.” Olivia unsnapped the buckles on the gurney. “Drugging her up and stuffing her into the back of a van for disposal. I guess Wilderness got tired of storing their mistakes and decided to start getting rid of them.”

“We don’t know that.” He tucked the sheet around the girl’s supine form, and then picked her up with little more effort than in years past. They both struggled a bit more these days. “McGreary knew she’d be here, but he didn’t know why. Maybe she was being delivered to a satellite lab.”

Olivia followed him out of the van. “Please. If this were a secured transport, there would have been at least one agent. They didn’t even have someone in the back guarding her.”

“Can we table the argument for now? Like after we’ve given McGreary his sister back and he’s paid us for our work?”

“Fine.” 

She followed him into the woods, to the short trail that would lead them up to their waiting SUV. Agents would be on the scene in a few hours. They likely already knew the van was compromised. No agents in the van did not mean there was no security measures in place. Olivia knew Wilderness, and she knew their tactics. If the girl, Brooke McGreary, was still an Active Project, they would put Mitchell on the case.
Gary Mitchell specialized in retrieving lost Projects. After all, he had been trying to retrieve Olivia and Nick for eighteen years.

#
Brooke remained unconscious for the two-hour drive to the rendezvous spot, a rest stop along I-77, just over the Ohio state line. She showed signs of waking during the last five minutes of the trip, so Olivia kept close watch. She didn’t know if the girl’s powers were dormant or active, and she didn’t want to find out the hard way. 

Been there, done that, with no intention of going there again.

Nick steered the SUV toward a wooded area a few hundred feet from the brick restrooms and information building. A blue pickup truck was parked in front of a cluster of picnic tables, and a figure emerged as Nick pulled into a neighboring space.

Olivia climbed out of the passenger side, her stiff back resisting movement after being still for so long. The ungraceful landing on her ass had definitely left its mark, and she wouldn’t be surprised to find some black and blue down there later. 

She joined Nick on the other side of the vehicle. Patrick McGreary approached them, hands at his sides, deep-set eyes wide with silent questions. His thick frame and sunburned appearance bore little resemblance to the girl in the back of their vehicle—not surprising given how Wilderness tended to treat their Projects. 

“Did you find her?” McGreary asked.

“Yes,” Olivia replied. “She’s still asleep, but we found her. Exactly as you said we would.”

McGreary expelled a deep breath. “Thank you both. You don’t know what this means to me. When they took her, I didn’t think I’d ever see her again.”

Nick opened the rear door. McGreary leaned inside and stroked Brooke’s bald head. His shoulders started to shake, and Olivia looked away. Gave him some privacy with his emotions.

“You’re lucky,” Nick said. “Most of the time, when Wilderness takes something, you don’t get it back. I just hope we weren’t too late to make a difference.”

“Look what they did to her,” McGreary whispered. “My pretty little sister.”

Olivia busied herself watching the small rest stop crowd, his genuine gratitude both overwhelming and embarrassing. This was why she hated meeting clients face to face. It made the jobs personal when she wanted them to remain professional. Getting emotional led to thinking about the past, and she couldn’t do that and remain objective.

Do the job and reap the rewards. 

Watching Wilderness occasionally take one up the ass was purely a bonus. 

Once McGreary regained his composure, they gently transferred Brooke to his truck and buckled her into the passenger seat. She stirred, but didn’t wake, and thank God for that. Olivia didn’t need to see their joyous reunion.

“I have a doctor friend who’s waiting for us,” McGreary said as he closed the truck door. 

“You should get going,” Olivia said. “Disappear before they start hunting for her.”

“If they hunt for her. But even if they try, being a precognitive has its advantages. I never have to ask who’s at the door, and I always know if the train’s running late.”

“Just keep her away from Wilderness. Get out of the country, move to Istanbul, I don’t care. Keep her safe. And yourself, too.”

“I appreciate the concern, but it’s not necessary. You did what I paid you to do, and I thank you for that.”

Olivia shrugged. They would take on any job that insulted or damaged Wilderness. A tenuous truce prevented her and Nick from attacking the scientific research organization outright, and they abided by those unspoken rules. But these sorts of odd jobs were fun. Something she would have done for free if the interested party couldn’t pay. Fortunately for them, McGreary had created his independent wealth betting on football games. 

Precognition definitely had its financial advantages.

“Our concern is free,” Nick said. “We’ve been dealing with Wilderness most of our lives. We know what they’re capable of, and we don’t take unnecessary risks when they’re involved.”

McGreary nodded. “I understand. At least let me read you. A sneak peek at your future.”

“I know my future, thanks.”

“How about this week then? What can it hurt?”

Olivia stole a glance Nick, whose gaze had shifted to the ground. She had a good idea of their future, as well, thanks to their biology, but that future was in three to five years. Not the events of the upcoming week. Moreover, McGreary seemed eager to provide them with some sort of parting gift.

“What the hell?” she said. “Give it your best shot.”

McGreary took her right hand in his and held it loosely. She expected him to close his eyes or start to hum or something equally cliché. Like television psychics who only pretend to have the kind of talent that truly existed in people like him. Instead, he stared at her. His dark brown eyes dilated and seemed to look right through her head. She visualized a hamster running on its wheel and couldn’t imagine what he saw in there. Seconds passed. He blinked and released her hand. His eyebrows furrowed into a knot.

“What?” she asked.

He tilted his head to the left, seeming to debate his reply, and that made her kind of nervous. “I saw two strangers coming into your life. I’m not sure who they are, but one is mundane and the other powerful. Unique. They’ll help unlock a secret.”

Olivia bit back a sharp retort. Two strangers had already come into her life this week, and she was staring at one of them. He’d tried, but perhaps his power went on the fritz occasionally.

Then again, he’d said one was mundane, and both McGreary and his sister had talents.

“Well, that was enlightening,” Nick said. “But seriously, you should get going.”

Patrick nodded, seeming distracted. 

They waited for him to drive away, hopefully taking Brooke as far from Wilderness and West Virginia as possible, before they climbed back into their borrowed SUV. 

Olivia pulled the safety belt across her lap. “Well, whoever this mystery pair is, I hope one of them’s cute.”
“What if they’re both girls?” Nick turned the key and the engine roared to life.

“Still hope one of them’s cute, because Nicolas, my friend, you have no sex life.”

He put the gear into reverse. “And you do?”

“Well, not at this very moment, but I hope to have one tonight. After a hot shower, some ibuprofen, and a long nap.” She settled against the seat, shifting until she found a comfortable position for the long ride home.







Chapter Two

“Dr. Frey! Open the door!”

The urgent, muffled voice spurred Dean Frey away from his chaotic desk. The computer’s hard drive lay smashed into dozens of pieces, the hardware inside completely exposed. He’d tossed in a handful of refrigerator magnets for good measure. His few remaining paper files and two thumb drives were secured in the pack strapped onto his back. 

His life’s work reduced to an old backpack. 

He darted to the lone sixth floor window. His already rolling stomach bottomed out at the sight of it. He rarely looked out the window; he never used the rusty fire escape. Living on the top story had never bothered his agoraphobia until the moment that three-by-five hole in the wall became his only escape route.
He would not go willingly with the men shouting outside his door. Doing so signed his own death warrant.

“Open it!”

Dean pulled, the window’s swollen frame squealing in protest. He managed a space of maybe nine or ten inches before it refused to rise further. He shoved the pack out first, and then squeezed through the tight space. It occurred to him in a mad panic that all of his middle school suffering, of being called “bean pole” and “arrow man” wasn’t so bad. His tall, skinny build had probably just saved his life. 

His hard landing on the iron fire escape rattled its entire frame. A wave of vertigo swept over him. The ground blurred and his head spun wildly. He gripped the rail, inhaled deeply, and then blinked hard.

I can do this. I have to do this.

He shouldered the pack, swung around and descended the ladder. Hand over hand, foot over foot, down the rusted rungs. One level at a time. Not thinking about how far down to the ground it was.

Wood crashed above, probably the front door being smashed in. Men were talking, some shouting, and the loudest of whom Dean recognized. He had a very distinctive voice. Gary Mitchell, head of security at Wilderness. 

The man had left the office just for him.

Guess that makes me special.

Dean hurried his descent, dropping floors as quickly as he could without looking down. Above him, the fire escape clattered with sharp squeals and clangs. Someone was following him, but Dean concentrated on going down and nothing else. Third story to the second. Almost there. 

He hit the ground and bolted toward the street. Men shouted his name. The building wall spat brick and mortar as he ran past. He registered that he was being shot at, but did not stop or slow down. If he did, he would be killed. Even running toward daytime traffic, he couldn’t be sure he wouldn’t be caught. He would not go gently. Not by a long shot.

Dean emerged from the alley and melted into the bustling lunchtime crowd. Pedestrians carried briefcases and takeout bags, rushing to meetings in their business suits and silk ties. Dean had thrown on a pair of blue jeans and an old sweater, and he carried a faded backpack on one shoulder. He was certainly the only one in the crowd running from the people he worked for. 

Used to work for.

He looked straight ahead, always searching. Public phone booths were insanely hard to find nowadays, but they still existed. His cell was in the apartment, as smashed to bits as his computer, useless even if he’d kept it. Wilderness could have traced the phone.

A block down, he spotted the Holy Grail attached to the side of a gas station. He clamped his hand down over the pack strap and made a beeline for the payphone. No one noticed him. Here he was anonymous for a while.

 â€œFor a good time, call Alice” was scrawled in black marker across the top of the pay phone, right above a number. Dean grabbed the grimy handset, then took a moment to look around, searching the faces of the passersby for anyone he recognized. 

No one. Not yet, anyway. 

He fished into his pocket for change and tossed a few coins into the phone. His fingers flew over the keypad; punching in the number he’d burned into his memory last night. Probably the only person who could help him out of this mess.

“The number you have dialed is not available,” a mechanical operator voice said. “If you require assistance—.”

Damn it.

Dean slammed the handset back into the receiver. His money clinked. He turned and looked back down the street toward his apartment building. Less than twenty feet away, he spotted a familiar face. Daryl Yates, a tall, thin man with a hooked nose who always reminded Dean of a younger, uglier Jimmy Stewart, was Mitchell’s second-in-command.

Yates met his gaze. Both men froze. Dean’s heart slammed against his ribs. Yates’s hand slid toward the front of his jacket.

Dean bolted, intent on running until he was hit by a car or was shot in the back. He raced toward the street, bolted through the nearest lane, and almost slammed right into a sheriff’s cruiser, paused in traffic in the far lane. Dean wasn’t sure if he wanted to cheer or weep.  

The deputy rolled down the window. Sunlight glinted off his nametag: Porter. 

“Problem, son?” Deputy Porter asked.

“Um, yeah.” Dean glanced behind him. Yates stood stiffly near the abandoned payphone. Mitchell approached, his eyes glued on Dean. Dean turned back to the officer. “Yes, sir. I really need to get to the bus station. You see, my wife is in Wheeling and she’s about to give birth to our first son, but I don’t have a car and—”

“Hop on in, son,” Deputy Porter said. “I’ll give you a lift. You’ll have to ride in the back, though. Rules and such.”

“Thank you so much. You have no idea.” He opened the door behind the deputy and slid inside, slamming it shut.

“You mind the siren? It’ll get us there faster.”

“The siren is fine,” Dean replied.

Porter flipped a switch on his dashboard and the cruiser’s siren wailed to life. Dean looked out the window at the street. Mitchell and Yates were gone. 

Thank God.

He leaned into the seat, shifting his pack around to rest in his lap, and tried to get his heart rate back under control. This was simply a diversion. A quick rest before the next sprint. They were being followed for sure, but there was no way to turn around and check without being obvious. A suspicious deputy was the last thing Dean needed.

“First kid, eh?” Porter asked. He adjusted his rearview for a better look, and Dean glanced up into curious eyes.

“Yeah.” Dean fidgeted a little. Lying was not something he did well. “It’s been hard, a lot of miscarriages. I had to come out here for business, and left poor Sally home alone. She isn’t due for two more weeks, but I guess you can’t plan these things.” 

Sally? Of all the names he could have picked, he came up with Sally? He didn’t even know a Sally, except for the blond girl in the Peanuts comics.

“I’ve got three kids myself,” Porter said, smiling broadly. “All girls and every one of them looks like their mama.”

That was probably a good thing. The deputy was chubby and balding, with mud-brown hair and a pointed chin. Not ugly, but not someone you’d want a girl to take after. 

“Wouldn’t have minded a son,” Porter went on. “But my wife decided three was enough and had that operation. Wouldn’t trade my girls for anything, though. You’ll know what I mean pretty soon, I think.”

Dean nodded along, content to let Porter do all the talking. Then he wouldn’t ask questions Dean didn’t want to answer. Thankfully, it wasn’t far to the bus station. He was half-afraid that the chatty deputy would start telling him stories about potty training and diaper rash, all subjects Dean had no interest in. Not today, and not anytime in the near future. 

Assuming he had a future. He’d heard stories about the security team at Wilderness, and the things that those men were willing and able to do. 

If Dean didn’t get real help soon, he would be dead.

#

Dean talked fast to prevent Deputy Porter from following him to the ticket window. The aged man seemed to take it upon himself to see to Dean’s welfare, concern that may have touched Dean if he wasn’t running for his life. The longer Porter was around him, the stronger the likelihood of him getting hurt. Or his family getting hurt. Either way, not something Dean wanted on his conscience.

The bus station bustled with life. Young couples searching for their buses, families juggling luggage of all sizes, single men off on business trips, one or two poorly dressed kids that might have been runaways. If Dean hadn’t been looking so hard for familiar faces, he probably wouldn’t have noticed any of them. They would have been as anonymous to him as he was to them.

Anonymity was a good thing. 

He was also in luck for a change. A direct route to Wheeling was scheduled to leave in less than ten minutes. Dean paid for a ticket, relieved he had enough cash in his wallet to cover the bill. Security tapes or not, he didn’t need his credit cards traced or attached to his destination. If they even worked. Wilderness knew people. It was likely that they were wiping out his entire life as he stood there, waiting for a young woman with blue-streaked hair to print out his bus ticket.

She slid the ticket under the glass partition and offered him a half-assed smile. “Have a nice trip,” she said with the enthusiasm of someone resigned to saying that ten thousand times a day for the rest of her life.

Dean mumbled a hurried thank you, grabbed the precious slip of paper and turned. He almost crashed into the man in line behind him. He muttered an apology and moved to the left, studying the station lobby, automatically searching for black suits. Anyone in a black suit was immediately suspicious, whether they were a lawyer, a tax attorney or one of Wilderness’s security agents. Spotting no one who seemed overtly interested in him, Dean walked toward the outer doors.

Once he exited the depot, he felt a fraction better. He inhaled the semi-fresh air, almost choking on the strong odors of oil and exhaust fumes. Six buses were lined up, in various states of readiness. Four had their sides raised, and uniformed men tossed luggage into the underside compartments with all the care of circus jugglers. The first two buses in line were loading passengers. Dean checked the numbers. His bus was first.

No way is this good luck going to keep up forever.

He glanced back at the depot, and his hand jerked. Yates and Mitchell stood at the ticket booth, only their profiles visible. The blue-haired girl snapped her gum, but didn’t seem terribly interested in answering their questions. Mitchell flashed a badge at her. Dean had seen those badges, identifying the wearer as part of a private security firm. They worked well as an intimidation tactic. 

In most cases. The ticket girl just shrugged.

Yates turned. His dark eyes met Dean’s, and Dean’s stomach churned. Yates nudged Mitchell. Dean didn’t wait to see how Mitchell reacted. He walked toward the row of buses, moving quickly without drawing too much attention. He went around the front of the fourth bus and back down along the other side. A chain link fence topped with razor wire prevented him from abandoning the bus station altogether. If more agents showed up, he was completely screwed.

Dean dropped to his knees and peered under the bus. Two sets of shiny leather shoes walked quickly in his direction. They paused, and then split up. One went left, the other right. Dean swallowed. They were going to trap him from either end of the bus.

His feet moved on their own, instinct carrying Dean to the luggage carriers. He looked inside, expecting it to be stuffed full. A clear path cut through to the other side of the bus. Only half loaded. He offered a silent thank you to whoever was looking out for him today and climbed inside. His hands slid on the surface of a leather suitcase, and he was certain he heard something crack. Strong cologne bit his nostrils. His left eye twitched, but he prevented the sneeze from escaping. 

He peeked out of the other side of the compartment in time to see Mitchell disappear around the back of the bus. Dean slid out, landed on his hands and pulled himself out the rest of the way, uncaring who saw or what they thought. His feet hit the pavement with a soft thump, and he ran toward his own bus. He didn’t stop until he was inside and up the three steps to where the driver waited to punch his ticket. Dean handed it over, amazed that his hand didn’t shake. The driver glanced at it, punched it absently and handed it back.

Dean found an empty seat halfway down the aisle, glad the bus was only half-full. He imagined he looked pale and scared, and he didn’t need a lot of people staring at him. He slouched low in his seat, hugging the pack to his chest, afraid everyone around him could hear his pounding heartbeat. The bus rumbled around him, that familiar, soothing engine sound. He vaguely registered the driver making an announcement, or the hiss of the closing doors.

I did it.

It wasn’t until the bus jerked forward that Dean dared sit up and glance out the window. As they pulled away from the station, he spotted a cluster of black-suited men standing amid the waiting buses. Dean flopped back into his seat, relief hitting him like a sledgehammer and leaving him boneless. His head lolled side to side in time with the lurching of the bus. The trip should take about three hours.

Three hours to try and plan the rest of his life, short though it might be.

          How to Track Car Gps Vehicle Tracking System         

Cars and vehicles are always a prized possession which is a luxury item. People buy these items by savings which they earn by lot of hard work so these vehicles and cars remain close to our heart and there also a lot of memories which gets associated with it. So, whenever its gets stolen or it comes up with an accident we feel very bad about it and it also requires a lot of money to recover and reconstruct it.

So, in order to keep our vehicles safe we really have to work hard and in India the car theft cases has risen to a very high rate in the last few years as they being sold in the neighboring countries like Nepal, Bhutan etc and this becomes difficult for our police department to track our cars. So, we have to be very careful like when we park our cars in the busy market place and while parking it at night because most of the times these are the moments when our vehicles get stolen.

We know there are watchmen and CCTV cameras for our concerns but doesn’t help much because it will not follow the car and to protect our vehicle we cannot hire a security agency as it will be highly expensive and nobody does that.

So, in order to keep it safe we can make use of the GPS (Global Positioning System) to protect our cars and vehicles from being stolen. The Spy GPS Vehicle Tracker in Indiais being launched sighting the car theft cases and this is a very useful product as it can target the device from satellite and can inform you about your vehicle through SMS and internet. So, whenever your vehicle is being stolen or being driven by your driver then you can easily track it down this will allow the police to work on it better and recover your car and the thieves in a very quick time and no extra money will have to be spent on it.

Through this you are also able to control the oil circuit of the car through a remote and this whenever you switch the button your vehicle will stop receiving oil from its tank. You will just have to insert a GSM SIM card into the GPS unit and the rest will be done by your device as it will connect itself with Google Earth which will make you watch all your car’s movements around your city. The Spy GPS Vehicle Tracker in Delhi is being made available after the car theft cases has increased magnificently in the city and the users of device has reviewed it positively as they can track their cars down easily with it.


So, use this device and easily park your car anywhere you like and remain care free about your car as you will regularly updated with the position of your car.

          PM STATEMENT ON MH370 – 24/03/14        


This evening I was briefed by representatives from the UK Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB). They informed me that Inmarsat, the UK company that provided the satellite data which indicated the northern and southern corridors, has been performing further calculations on the data. Using a type of analysis never before used in an investigation of this sort, they have been able to shed more light on MH370’s flight path.
 
Based on their new analysis, Inmarsat and the AAIB have concluded that MH370 flew along the southern corridor, and that its last position was in the middle of the Indian Ocean, west of Perth.
 
This is a remote location, far from any possible landing sites. It is therefore with deep sadness and regret that I must inform you that, according to this new data, flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean.
 
We will be holding a press conference tomorrow with further details. In the meantime, we wanted to inform you of this new development at the earliest opportunity. We share this information out of a commitment to openness and respect for the families, two principles which have guided this investigation.
 
Malaysia Airlines have already spoken to the families of the passengers and crew to inform them of this development. For them, the past few weeks have been heartbreaking; I know this news must be harder still. I urge the media to respect their privacy, and to allow them the space they need at this difficult time.


          rebooting        
it begins! (again.) i think living independently is good for me. i feel like a burden when living off other people, and having my own place is always nice. more or less settled in now, all the account information has been updated, bills set up etc. had a slight hitch on Thursday (08.10.15) when my old Fedora laptop finally gave up the ghost. the HDD made an ominous, bomb-like ticking noise for a few minutes, the system abruptly stopped responding, then the power died and refused to power back on. no luck with diagnostics/repairs that night or the morning after, until one last Chinese reboot convinced the machine to power on and load GRUB. from here i was able to get into Fedora, but only after about seven or eight minutes of loading and fan noise... when i actually got the window manager up, i found it responding slower than if i were sending commands via satellite from the fucking Moon. the terminal was no exception. i'd click or press a key, and literally several entire minutes would go by before the machine reflected what i'd pressed by opening a menu, showing the typed character onscreen, switching windows or whatever. with this excruciatingly slow method, i transferred my WIP novel to an SD card (it was the only irreplaceable file, i'd lost its backup on USB in the moving chaos). the machine itself is unusable and not worth buying a replacement hard drive for, so i haven't lost any data this time, but i have lost that. a new one's coming in a few weeks. it's one of these nice cheap preloaded Ubuntu ones for poor people so it should suit me fine. i don't need an SSD or fifty terabytes of disk space or 16G RAM, i just need some form of Linux laptop so i can function.

and meds. i also need lots of pain meds so i can function.

this Hallowe'en i will be speaking about transhumanism and biohacking in Nottingham, not sure of the exact place and time yet. i'll put up a post and a twatter update when i do, it shouldn't be very expensive if anyone wants to show up.

other news: next planned work is to upgrade my first ever implant, the little RFID ampoule tag i used for the various access hacks i took out of RFID Toys. it's very old and not writable or secured, so i've been wanting a replacement chip for a long time & am now in a position to replace it. (i say "replace", i really mean "install a new one and just stop using the old one because it's a pain in the arse to get things back out from under the skin of the hands and i can't be bothered".) i have a few ideas re where to source a suitable tag. will update you all as i get there.

          The Class of '61        

On a recent weekend, the Ursuline High School Class of 1961 gathered at a reunion to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of our graduation. During four events – a social Friday night, a tour of the school Saturday afternoon, a banquet Saturday night, and a brunch Sunday - we got reacquainted with one another, we reminisced, and, of course, we gauged the impact of the years on one another. If I had to pick one word to characterize the weekend, it would be change.

The change in us was obvious. With few exceptions, our thin bodies were gone. In fact, one plump gentleman, whom I did not recognize across the room, waved a photo of a stick of a boy as he approached people. It was his picture from the year book. Further, dozens of heads sported white hair or none at all. A blind person could tell our ages by simply eavesdropping on our conversations. All of them led inexorably to two topics – our grandchildren and our health afflictions.

Similarly, our school had changed a lot. The nuns and priests who taught us and ran the school were largely gone, replaced by laity. The classroom where many of us learned an invaluable skill – how to type – was now a computer lab. Further, the enrollment had gone down over the half century, from over 1,200 students in 1961 to just over 400 today, while the tuition had gone up, from $110 a year to $6,500 a year.

During the weekend my classmates and I talked a lot about other changes, for good or ill, since we graduated. Here's a partial list of what arrived and what departed.

  1. The arrivals since 1961 include CD's, the Super Bowl, AIDS, satellite radio and TV, cruise control, bar codes, cell phones, caller-ID, computers, the internet, Google, Microsoft, kindles, iPods and iPads, YouTube, Facebook, HD TV, the GPS, Wal-Mart, the ubiquitous "Made in China" label, microwaves, MRI's, telemarketers, right-turn-on-red, the Youngstown freeway, malls, international terrorists, drug trafficking, reality TV, a decline in marriage, an explosion in cohabitation, GM Lordstown, the Exal Corporation, V&M Star, Turning Technologies, the Covelli Center, Botox, and Viagra.
  2. The departures since 1961 include Idora Park, the Toddle House, the Broadway Diner, the 20th Century Restaurant, the Mural Room, the Ringside, the Brass Rail, Strouss-Hirschberg's, McKelvey's, Livingston's, General Fireproofing, Youngstown Sheet & Tube, U.S. Steel, Republic Steel, the car dealerships called "The Wick Six," the Ohio and Tod Hotels, the Warner, Palace, State, Paramount, Strand, and Regent theaters and the Park burlesque, nearly all the drive-in theaters, a single digit divorce rate, a busy airport, and the car bombing known as the "Youngstown tune-up." (1)

Finally, I want to mention the classmate who was the undisputed center of attention at the reunion. At 67 years of age, he is the father of six-year old triplets. He transports them and their young mother in a stretch limousine which he bought on e-bay. Although his new family has reenergized him, there is a downside. His retirement is on indefinite hold.


  1. The "Youngstown tune-up" refers to an explosion due to a bomb planted inside a car, usually under the hood. In the war between two factions of organized crime between 1955 and 1963, there were 75 Youngstown tune-ups. This prompted a cover story on Youngstown in The Saturday Evening Post in 1963 entitled Murdertown USA.

          Interview of Charles A. Burroughs by Brian Shoemaker        
Interview of Charles A. Burroughs by Brian Shoemaker Burroughs, Charles A. Capt. Burroughs was commissioned as an Ensign in the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey upon graduation from the University of Connecticut in 1958 and was immediately sent to Alaska aboard the R/V Patton, a small hydrographic survey ship. Later he was assigned to the Bering Sea aboard the R/V Pathfinder where they surveyed the coast of the Aleutian Peninsula while based at Dutch Harbor. He attended graduate school (Major in Geodetic Science) from 1962-63 at The Ohio State University. He then worked in triangulation fieldwork in the Arctic, including the establishment of the first Coast and Geodetic satellite triangulation station in the Arctic at Cambridge Bay, NWT in 1964 during the winter. He discusses his experiences while there and also talks about the remains of the M/V Maud, Amundsen's ship that rests in shallow water just offshore. In 1965, Capt. Burroughs performed reconnaissance for four more satellite triangulation stations on St. Lawrence Island, Shemya Island, Pt. Barrow and Cold Bay. These were important accomplishments because they laid the groundwork for more accurate photographic mapping systems of the Arctic Basin, as well as providing data for the establishment of a world –wide geodetic datum. After the C&GS was rolled into ESSA in 1965, and finally NOAA in 1970, he was given Command of the NOAA Ship Fairweather during 1973-74, where he made modern hydrographic surveys of the Cook Inlet and Glacier Bay, Alaska (utilizing automated hydrographic survey systems). From 1976 until he retired in 1985, he held a number of staff and administrative positions in NOAA Headquarters, including Chief of Staff to the Director of the NOAA Corps. This was a short, but good interview. As an aside it should be noted that Capt. Burroughs is still involved with mapping and has been an officer of numerous mapping societies including president of the Washington Map Society, editor The PORTOLAN, the Society newsletter/journal, and secretary of the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Society. He is an authority on The U.S. Exploring Expedition, 1838-42, commanded by Lt. Charles Wilkes that made significant discoveries of the Antarctic coastline. He has written a chapter in the Book Magnificent Voyages, The U.S. Exploring Expedition, 1838-42, Smithsonian 1985. The book details the relationship between the expedition and the fledgling Smithsonian and the perseverance of Admiral Wilkes, who for 40 years attended to the curation of the expedition collections.
          Interview of Gordon Cartwright by Brian Shoemaker        
Interview of Gordon Cartwright by Brian Shoemaker Cartwright, Gordon Mr Cartwright began a career with the US Weather Bureau in 1929 and served in positions of increasing responsibility witnessing all of the major developments in meteorological data collection and forecasting, the advent of satellites for weather reporting, the creation of NOAA from the USWB and other agencies and the USWB role in the Arctic and the Antarctic. Career highlights discussed in this interview include: during World War II, Cartwright organized a series of weather reporting stations along the ALCAN Highway for reporting Arctic weather conditions; he developed the Joint Arctic Weather Reporting System (JAWS) with the Canadians; he funded the construction of the initial weather reporting bases at Resolute and Alert; he was selected as an exchange scientist with the Russians during the IGY.
          Interview of Harold Leinbach by Brian Shoemaker        
Interview of Harold Leinbach by Brian Shoemaker Leinbach, Harold Dr. Leinbach had an interest in astronomy from an early age. His fascination led him to pursue studies in astronomy at the University of Maryland, South Dakota, and at Cal Tech, where he received his master’s degree. At the University of Alaska, the Geophysical Observatory staff resigned leaving a shortage. This convinced Leinbach to apply to the Geophysical Institute. He got the job and moved to Alaska to work on projects observing the aurora. He talks about various ways to document and view them. Leinbach was drafted in 1953 and assigned to the Rocky Mountain Arsenal where his group was responsible for the manufacture of nerve gas. He conducted testing to see if the nerve gas was good or bad. After his discharge in 1956, he went back to the Geophysical Institute. In the summer of 1956, he helped to develop a new instrument for measuring ionospheric opacity called the riometer. In October 1957, he traveled to King Solomon and Unalaska to gather data with the riometer. Leinbach talks about his experiences there. The Geophysical Institute also gave the riometers to other colleges as well as Sweden. The institute installed riometers at the Air Force in Thule, Farewell, and Fort Yukon. While working for the Geophysical Institute, Leinbach was also pursuing a Ph.D. in geophysics. The Geophysical Institute was involved in researching and publishing papers about their measurements and their findings on polar cap absorption. They were invited by the University of Iowa to show the warnings of the occurrence of the events by the riometer data. He talks about the experiments that went on there as well as the results. Leinbach mentions a major polar cap absorption event on May 14th, 1959 in Minnesota. This event received major recognition and press. He describes the increase in technology that increased the amount of solar information available and generated interest about the subject. After finishing his thesis in 1962, he received a job at the University of Iowa. For four years at Iowa, Leinbach was involved in a variety of projects. After that, Leinbach moved to Boulder and worked for the Space Environment Laboratory of NOAA. During his career, one of his experiments entailed making artificial auroras.

          Interview of James A. Van Allen by Brian Shoemaker        
Interview of James A. Van Allen by Brian Shoemaker Van Allen, James A. (James Alfred), 1914-2006 Dr. Van Allen is a distinguished physicist and a leading researcher on interplanetary satellites. He is known for helping to organize the International Geophysical Year in 1957-58. As a young student at Iowa Wesleyan University in 1931, Van Allen developed a strong interest in physics under the guidance of Thomas Poulter. Poulter was the chief scientist and second in command for the Second Byrd Expedition to Antarctica in 1933. As an undergraduate, Van Allen learned to make observations of the magnetic field of the Earth using a magnetometer, and was introduced to the science of geophysics, his lifelong passion. He also did original scientific work on the Perseid meteor shower of August 1932. After graduating from the University of Iowa in 1939 with a Ph.D. in nuclear physics, he joined the Carnegie Institution as a Research Fellow, where he helped develop a radio proximity fuse for use in naval long-range anti-aircraft guns. He developed one of the basic features of the vacuum tube that was the heart of the fuse. In November 1942, he and two co-workers were commissioned as naval officers to go out to the fleet and accompany an initial shipment of these proximity fused projectiles. His personal responsibility was for the destroyers. Van Allen discovered that the success rate of the fuses was compromised by the early deterioration of the batteries, and was responsible for setting up re-battery depots on a wide scale in the Pacific. His navy career ended in May 1946. Van Allen returned to the Applied Physics Lab as a civilian, and did considerable research on high altitude rockets, including captured German V-2 rockets. He oversaw development of the Aerobee, a high-altitude Navy rocket. This rocket has no active guidance system, and Van Allen and his team successfully made adjustments to insure that it would not deviate from its approved range at the White Sands Proving Ground. He also continued research on cosmic rays, atmospheric ozone, and high altitude photography. On April 5, 1950, Van Allen invited several friends, all distinguished scientists, to his home for a dinner party at Silver Spring, Maryland. The group included Sydney Chapman, a British geophysicist, Lloyd Berkner, and Wallace Joyce. It was here that the very first plans were laid for what became the International Geophysical Year (IGY). The men agreed that the general assessment of geophysics was moving along so rapidly that it would be desirable to plan the IGY for 1957-58, on the 25th anniversary of the first Polar Year. As it happened, this was also a year of expected maximum solar activity. The IGY was a non-governmental enterprise made up of independent scientific organizations. In the United States, the National Academy of Sciences was the principal society, and the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Navy provided the principal governmental support. Van Allen belonged to several committees of the IGY, and chaired the Working Group on Internal Instrumentation. He was responsible for soliciting and selecting the experiments which were to be conducted on the satellite itself. Polar exploration in both the Arctic and the Antarctic received an enormous stimulus from the IGY. Operation Deep Freeze, which established the Antarctic continent as a major area of scientific exploration, was a major consequence of the IGY. The Antarctic Treaty was another direct outcome of the IGY. Van Allen made three polar expeditions for scientific purposes. In 1952, with the support of the Office of Naval Research he devised and successfully developed techniques for launching a rocket from a balloon at some 50,000 to 60,000 feet of altitude. The device, called a rockoon, which was launched in 1953 from the Coast Guard cutter Eastwind, reached altitudes of 250,000 feet. It made valuable discoveries in the Arctic region, including cosmic ray measurements, and the discovery of the auroral soft radiation zone. Similar experiments were later conducted along the equator and in Antarctica. At the University of Iowa, Van Allen, working with colleagues and in close touch with his friend Wernher van Braun, of the Army Ballistic Missile Agency in Huntsville, Alabama, developed the scientific payload for Explorer I, the first successful American satellite. The flight was a great success, and resulted in the discovery of the radiation belts of the Earth, later named the Van Allen belt. He was the co-discoverer of the radiation belts of the planets Jupiter and Saturn. Van Allen commented as to how much his research field has changed over the years. For example, he and others worked for years in the early 1950’s using balloon launched rockets (rockoons) to complete a very good latitude survey in both the Arctic and Antarctic regions. Today, using polar satellites, the same mapping can be done in 45 minutes. He never personally returned to the Polar regions. Since 1958 Van Allen’s entire career has been in satellite and spacecraft observations. He had instruments aboard Mariner II to Venus in 1962, Mariner IV to Mars in 1964, Mariner V to Venus in 1965, and the first missions to Jupiter and Saturn on Pioneer 10 and 11. He has also kept very busy with research, and continues to train graduate students. As recognition of his long, productive career, Van Allen has been awarded the Nansen Medal for his contributions to Arctic geophysics, radiation belt physics, and the exploration of the aurora by rockets and satellites.

          Interview of Robert A. Helliwell by Brian Shoemaker        
Interview of Robert A. Helliwell by Brian Shoemaker Helliwell, Robert A. Dr. Helliwell was born in Minnesota and moved to California with his family at the age of seven after his father died. In 1938, he enrolled at Stanford University. His part-time job was to record Radio Saigon (Japanese propaganda) on a dictaphone with a wax cylinder. He learned to build his own receivers for the local ham radio station. His professor of electrical engineering was interested in the ionosphere and radio transmission, He became interested in the whistlers on a telephone receiver. Later he studied whistlers produced by atomic detonations. Dr. Helliwell designed experiments to study whistlers in Antaretica during the IGY. This work led to dictionary of the nose whistler. He describes establishing bases in the Antarctic and Arctic for collecting whistler data. They also determined that there were no whistlers at the equator, A dipole antenna, high-wave in length, was installed twenty feet above the Antarctic ice. The experiments with Siple I had modulation restrictions. The station’s building was 320 feet long. They found out that the interaction of the transmitter with particles in the magnetosphere produced a huge field. The signals were received in Roberval, Quebec. The top power signal excited four paths. As the power was decreased the paths disappeared, one by one. The antenna was forty kilometers long and supported on poles every 200 feet. A second 40 kilometer antenna formed a cross with the first. The station operated from 1973 through 1988. In retirement he has been publishing papers and writing a book. Major Topics • At the age of seven, he and his family moved to California from Minnesota because his father died of pneumonia. • His mother became a librarian in Palo Alto. • During the depression, his grandparents moved from Minnesota to live with his family. • He entered Stanford University in 1938. • A part-time job recording Japanese propaganda for the Hoover Institution, which led to an interest in Ham Radio. • He was employed to measure the reflections of radio waves from the ionosphere. • He gave a lengthy description of whistlers and “down chorus”. • Sometimes he used long telephones and barbed wire fences to hear spherics and whistlers. • His involvement in detecting atomic bomb blast is summarized. • In 1956, he was invited to study whistlers in Antarctica as a part of IGY. • Described excitement associated with finding the nose whistler. • In mapping the magnetosphere, they located the plasma pause. • Helped design equipment to prevent radiation noise for special experiments. • Whistler measurements were coordinated between both Polar Regions, for two minutes each hour. During special events, such as the atomic bomb, data was continuously collected. • The rate of whistlers versus latitude was determined by the equipment on a ship, El Tannin. • Used NASA satellite to observe VLF waves. • Wire antennas had to be located more than 20 feet above the ice. • Found that radio pulses grew slowly in amplitude exponentially with time. • Siple Station is described. • Mrs. Younkin, pp.4 • Prof. Oswald G.

          Interview of Howard O. Wessbecher by Brian Shoemaker        
Interview of Howard O. Wessbecher by Brian Shoemaker Wessbecher, Howard O. Howard Wessbecher served at the Alert and Resolute sites in the Arctic region, as well as McMurdo in Antarctica. He wintered over in all three places. Earlier in his career, he served in WWII, completed a degree in forestry, and accepted a position with the Weather Bureau. His first major assignment (April 1952 until March 1953) was as storekeeper in Resolute Bay, in remote northern Canada. The small base had only 12 persons, six Americans and six Canadians. Four smaller satellite stations, with eight people each, were in outlaying regions. Resolute was re-supplied twice a year by the Air Force, once in the spring and once in the fall. Wessbecher adjusted well to the isolation and harsh conditions. At Resolute, and the other stations as well, there was a radiosonde program that involved launching weather balloons twice a day into the upper atmosphere. The radiosonde was a small box with a radio transmitter, and a pressure gauge. Using radio signals it gave readings for humidity, temperature, air pressure, wind speed and direction. At first the men made their own hydrogen gas for launching the balloons. Later the Weather Bureau supplied much safer helium gas. There was also a glaciological study program at Resolute which involved measuring the thickness of sea ice, and analyzing the depth, gradations, and composition of snow layers. Once a day, Wessbecher ventured out on the sea ice in the bay to measure its thickness. He always carried a rifle as a defense against polar bears. Several Eskimo families also lived at Resolute Bay. There was also a Mountie at the Canadian base; his main task at Resolute seemed to be to keep the Eskimos from raiding the garbage dumps. Twice a year the US Navy refilled the main 15,000 gallon oil tanks at Resolute. One of Wessbecher’s responsibilities was to fill from these larger tanks all of the 55 gallon oil drums that were to be flown to the satellite stations. Once there, he had to transfer the oil yet again, this time from the 55-gallon drums to 500-1000 gallon storage tanks. All of the men at the base were involved in routine maintenance, such as, cleaning, painting, clearing the airstrip of snow, etc. Their main task was weather studies. After a two-week leave at home in March 1953, Wessbecher returned to the Arctic as the Executive Officer at Camp Alert, a remote base just 400 miles from the North Pole on the northern tip of Ellesmere Island. One could see Greenland off in the distance. No natives lived on the island. Only eight people were stationed at Camp Alert, four Americans and four Canadians. All eight men were busy with various tasks most of the time. Two radiosondes were launched by balloon each day, and the surface weather had to be studied, coded, and recorded every four hours. Data was transmitted by radio. The men made their own hydrogen gas the dangerous way using caustic soda, aluminum chips, and water. The small air strip had to be plowed using tractors. Electricity was produced using three diesel generators. Fortunately, the cook was excellent and the food was delicious after all of this hard work. Despite the cold and long periods of darkness, there were certain compensations. The air was so clear it seemed one could reach out and touch the moon. They were too far north, however, to see auroras. During the summer they might get an occasional outside visitor, but basically there was nothing at Camp Alert except the weather station. After one year at Camp Alert during 1953-54, Wessbecher returned to Camp Resolute without taking any vacation. It was very difficult to go home for two weeks, and then readjust to the darkness and isolation. Some changes had occurred at the Camp since his earlier stay there. The Canadian government had resettled several volunteer Eskimo families in the area, and encouraged them to continue their traditional ways of igloos, hunting, and fishing. They killed polar bears, walrus, and seals, and according to Wessbecher, the Eskimo women and children would scoop out the raw blubber from seals and eat it quickly with both hands. “It was just like eating candy.” In January 1955, Wessbecher’s assignment at Camp Resolute ended suddenly. He was recalled to Washington D.C., to serve on the Antarctic Planning Staff, a new initiative of the U.S. Weather Bureau. Later it became the Polar Operations Project. The assignment was to advise on living and surviving in polar regions, in both the Arctic and Antarctic areas, including food, buildings, clothing, supplies, sleeping gear, etc. Wessbecher was named contracting officer, and purchased supplies that would be needed in Antarctica. When Ken Molton, already there as part of Operation Deepfreeze, declined to overwinter, Wessbecher was drafted (“volunteered”) as his replacement. Once in Antarctica, Wessbecher became one of the two civilian representatives to the US Navy, and the International Geophysical Year (IGY). Among his duties was to organize and inventory the tremendous number of boxes of scientific weather equipment intended for the upcoming South Pole project, headed by Paul Siple. Much of it had to be “palletized,” equipped with parachutes, so that it could be delivered next season. Dick Bowers handled the delivery of building materials for the South Pole base. Although Wessbecher still worked for the Weather Bureau he reported to the US National Committee of the IGY. He was the Senior Science Representative in McMurdo to IGY. In addition to taking weather observations at McMurdo, he helped plan research in other areas, including Aurora study, geomagnetism, glaciology, and geomorphology. Admiral George Dufek and his pilot made the first landing at the South Pole, but before long many others followed. Contrary to inaccurate press reports, there was no real conflict between the Navy, who provided the transportation, and the scientists who were anxious to get to the Pole as soon as possible. Dufek promised to start the flights to the Pole as soon as the weather allowed. Wessbecher, and the only other civilian at McMurdo, Elmo Jones, a photographer, spent the winter at the base. This meant that he spent almost four straight years, including four winters, in the Arctic and Antarctic. Wessbecher first arrived in Antarctica in March 1955, aboard the icebreaker, the US Glacier. The trip from Littleton, New Zealand, was quite rough, but fascinating. In order to make it all the way to McMurdo it was necessary to break some ice. All the way the Glacier was also towing a fuel tanker. Wessbecher recalls the names of several of the military personnel who wintered over, including helicopter pilots, electricians, and others. Father Condit, a Catholic priest, also wintered over. Wessbecher was asked to make a pole that could be mounted and left at the South Pole, and he designed a bamboo one 12 feet long. Evidently it is still there, buried deep in the snow. In 1959 he was honored with a “Special Award” certificate from the National Academy of Sciences honoring his various accomplishments in Antarctica.

          Interview of Alan H. Shapley by Brian Shoemaker        
Interview of Alan H. Shapley by Brian Shoemaker Shapley, Alan H. Dr. Alan Shapley began his long polar career in Alaska, where he worked for several years during the late 1940’s on ionospheric and radio research at the Central Radio Propagation Laboratory (CRPL) in Anchorage. He also spent time in Washington, D.C. with the newly created Geophysical Institute. His duties required various trips by C-46’s in Alaska, including Fairbanks, Barrow, Anchorage, and the Aleutian Islands. In 1949 Lloyd Berkner, James Van Allen, and others advocated establishment of another Polar Geophysical Year in 1957-58. The First Polar Year was in 1882-83; the Second Polar Year in 1932-33. Given the major scientific advances of more recent years, especially during WWII, it seemed reasonable to begin soliciting support from various international scientific organizations for a Third Polar Year. But soon the plans expanded from a primarily Polar emphasis to a much more broadly conceived global scientific enterprise. Thus the International Geophysical Year (IGY) was born. Among the disciplines included were geomagnetism, cosmic rays, solar activity, the ionosphere, seismology, gravity, and satellites. Certain days, called World Days, were designated for special emphasis on specific topics, such as geomagnetic storms and northern lights. Shapley was named Reporter for World Days. Much of the preliminary planning and organization for the IGY was done by the US Committee for the International Geophysical Year. Shapley was appointed Vice Chairman of this committee; Joseph Kaplan, Professor of Physics at UCLA, was the Chairman. Various senior people from other disciplines were also named. Among the innovations created for IGY was creation of the World Data Centers for sharing results of scientific findings from the various projects. Shapley recalls some of the details of planning for the Antarctic phase of IGY. Lloyd Berkner was a strong advocate for a new program there. Other important advocates were Larry Gould, President of Carleton College, and Harry Wexler. An early decision to establish the Byrd Station in Marie Byrd Land proved to have been based on faulty scientific observations. Shapley suggested establishing another research Station at the South Pole. After initially refusing, the Navy agreed that when the time came, it would transport at its own expense the scientists and their equipment as far as McMurdo Sound, a logistics base, and an area that was then claimed by New Zealand. Political sensitivities later caused problems and limited certain research endeavors. Much of the funding for the Antarctic project came from the newly created National Science Foundation. Hugh Audeshaw and Shapley prepared most of the detailed budget requests. Annual meetings of CSAGI, known as plenary sessions, were held for several years. There was a large one in Rome in 1954; the last one was in Moscow in 1958. In addition, special Antarctic conferences were held. There was also a special Antarctic Committee; Larry Gould was the Chair. Shapley was a member from the beginning. He also chaired the working group on communications. An essential component of an Antarctic program was a sound radio communication network, especially for collecting and transmitting weather data. Unfortunately there were various political sensibilities that complicated, but did not ultimately prevent, such communications. The Chileans refused to transmit any data through Argentine stations and vice versa. The British would not cooperate with the Argentines and vice versa. Nobody trusted the Russians. Shapley devised a system that mainly allowed scientists to work around these problems. Ultimately, “Weather Central” was created, and the weather data flowed openly. Shapley offers miscellaneous, incidental, personal comments about various people who had some connection to the Antarctic program. Among those mentioned were Tom Jones, Mort Turner, George Toney, Bert Crary, Gordon McHugh Robbin, and Phil Smith. Some of the many international conferences are also mentioned in passing. Shapley went to Antarctica in December 1958 and visited several bases. He made a brief second trip to Antarctica in 1969 and a final trip, including the South Pole, in 1970. Shapley believes the various programs were successful, in particular, the post-IGY creation of the World Data Centers.

          Interview of John Hobbie Roscoe by Brian Shoemaker        
Interview of John Hobbie Roscoe by Brian Shoemaker Roscoe, John Hobbie, 1919- John Roscoe, born in 1919, received an excellent education at Flushing High School in Syracuse, New York. He graduated from Syracuse University in 1940, and in 1941 earned a Master’s Degree there in Geography under George Cressy. His plans for pursuing a Ph.D. at UCLA in the field of cartography, with an emphasis on aerial photogrammetry and photo interpretation, were interrupted when he was urgently recruited to join the Intelligence Office for the Army Air Corps. He remained there until the spring of 1943 working as an interpreter of aerial photographs. He also wrote the manual for aerial photo interpretation, and was one of the very first persons to see the aerial photographs of damage to Pearl Harbor and Wake Island. In 1943 he was called to active military service as a Lieutenant in the Marine Corps. He continued his work as a photo interpreter at the Naval Photo Intelligence School. Later he was assigned to the European theatre of operations. He interpreted through aerial photographs the success of bombing raids in Germany, and he believed his team achieved a 99% success rate in interpretation. Soon after the war ended, Roscoe accepted an Associate Professorship in the Department of Geography at the University of Georgia, but before the first semester ended he was recalled to active duty. He was ordered to join Task Force 68 already on its way to Antarctica. He joined up with Admirals Byrd and Quackenbush in Panama. Roscoe was the only qualified photo interpreter on the expedition, named Operation Highjump. Byrd hoped to photomap as much of Antarctica as he could. Roscoe traveled aboard the command ship, the Mount Olympus, one of thirteen ships in the 5,000 man expedition. As they approached Antarctica they discovered that several hundred miles of the Ross Sea were completely blocked with solid floe ice. The submarine, the USS Stennet, was so badly damaged by ice that it had to return to Panama for repairs. The only two icebreakers on the expedition left temporarily to free the Stennet, and several ships, including the Mount Olympus were locked fast in the ice. Eventually all ships made it safely to an area of open water in the Ross Sea. Admiral Byrd flew into the base at Little America on the first plane. At the time, Byrd was at an advanced age, not well, retired from active service, and had no command. The two icebreakers, the USS Northwind, and the USS Edisto, had rejoined the expedition. Roscoe was a member of the initial landing party, a reconnaissance team, as it entered the abandoned base at Little America, established earlier by Byrd in 1939. The Seabees came next and carved a road through the ice ridges. Soon a tent camp was built, with five rows of ten four-man tents each. Each had a small pot bellied stove in the center. The mess hall was off to one side, and the airfield one-half mile away. Roscoe’s tent mates were Major Weir and Richard Byrd, Jr. Weir was head of the Marines that were flying. The Marines had two R4D aircraft; the Navy had four. One of the great difficulties in getting aerial films was because of the magnetic situation so close to the Pole it was difficult to interpret flight directions accurately. The compasses were off on the planes. For safety reasons two R4D aircraft flew together on photographic flights so that if one of them went down, the other could radio for a search team. All of the R4Ds and the American Mariners, flying boats, had trimetrigon film and camera settings. Another plane used to photograph wildlife and glacial formations was the OY-1, a small, single-engine aircraft. Admiral Byrd consulted Colonel Roscoe about planning photographic flights, and interpreting the films later on. Some twelve correspondents, representing radio networks and national newspapers, were on the mission. Although the relationship between Byrd and Roscoe was tumultuous at times, on the trip home at the end of the expedition, Byrd named Roscoe his envoy to the Prime Minister of New Zealand. Roscoe,along with the twelve correspondents, were all given an extensive tour of New Zealand. The expedition continued on to the United States. After the conclusion of Operation Highjump, Roscoe left the service, and worked in Navy Intelligence as a civilian. He worked for a time as the Navy representative to a military working group, the genesis of what in 1949 would become the Joint Staff of the military branches. Later he agreed to work as the Air Force representative on this committee. Roscoe returned to Antarctica the following year as a member of Operation Windmill, to map “control points.” These were needed to make accurate maps, and were points for which the exact latitude, longitude, and elevation had been determined. Two icebreakers, the Burton Island and the Edisto made the trip. Roscoe represented Naval Intelligence, but he went as a civilian. His principal responsibility was to interpret aerial photographs. He also constructed cairns holding metal claims markers (claiming certain territories for the United States) at various points along the coast, including Haswell Island, a penguin rookery, McMurdo Sound, and Victoria Land. He also landed on virtually inaccessible Peter the First Island. Here he collected a skua, and a Chinstrap penguin, both of which he later had stuffed. He also took home a female sled dog, who back in Washington gave birth to 16 pups. As a result of his work with aerial photographs he named several glacial ice floes. Roscoe also visited Little America, now covered with ice since the previous expedition, Operation Highjump. The rows of tents and the R4D aircraft were all buried in ice. One aircraft engine was dug out and it worked fine. Also a Weasel vehicle was chipped out of the ice and it also ran well. Once Operation Windmill concluded, Roscoe returned to duty with the Navy in Washington, D.C., and worked to assemble a bibliography on Antarctica that later was published. It categorized every expedition separately, including the old ones. As Operation Deepfreeze was being planned by Byrd and others, Roscoe, a civilian, was assigned by the Navy to work with Byrd. By then Roscoe and Byrd had developed a close working relationship. Byrd was a principal advisor in planning for the International Geophysical Year (IGY) in 1956-57. He returned to Antarctica in Deepfreeze I, but Roscoe did not, although he served as Byrd’s scientific and international affairs advisor. He made all the arrangements for the interchanges of people to send to foreign expeditions. In Washington he worked closely with Harry Dater, and Vi Malcolm, the last Commanders of the WAVES. Their office in Washington was in the Executive Office Building, next to the Blair House, and across the street from the White House. On his final trip to Antarctica, Operation Deepfreeze I, Byrd was accompanied to Antarctica by Paul Siple. Roscoe remained in Washington to run the office. Byrd became ill while there, cut short his trip, and after his return home he died in April, 1957. Shortly before the death of Admiral Byrd, Roscoe resigned from Civil Service and accepted an attractive position with the Lockheed Corporation. He designed the photographic system for the first American satellite. The Russians had just launched their Sputnik satellite. Roscoe never returned to the polar regions. He recalled various ways his polar experiences had affected his life. He found the Antarctic continent absolutely beautiful. It went beyond “black and white” colors since there were many shades of white, all of which Roscoe had learned to interpret as he studied aerial photographs. He also had become acutely aware of the dangers of the continent. He used the data he gathered there to earn his doctorate from the University of Maryland in 1952. His six-volume dissertation was on the morphology of the Antarctic continent. He used Operation Highjump photographs plus some others. He also edited a 5000-entry bibliography on the Antarctic in 16 languages. Roscoe also served as Vice President of the American Polar Society from 1957 until (at least) 2002 (the date of this interview). Roscoe continued to add to his impressive polar library, and suggested that he might be willing to donate it to the Byrd Polar Research Center. He suggested names from time to time for Antarctic features. He cooperated with publishers of such projects as Burrell’s Board of Place Names and Geographic Names of the Antarctic. He served on the Board of the Polar Times, and occasionally contributed to an article. A glacier was named for Roscoe. Since his retirement from Lockheed in 1982, Roscoe has developed an interest in history, and has done much reading and some research on the Crusades and the Knights Templar. He has also been an active member of the Masons.

          Interview of Martin A. Pomerantz by Brian Shoemaker        
Interview of Martin A. Pomerantz by Brian Shoemaker Pomerantz, Martin A., 1916- Dr. Martin Pomerantz, a physicist who specialized in cosmic ray research, had a long and distinguished career in polar studies. As a graduate student at the University of Pennsylvania he took a challenging course in 1938 at the Bartol Research Foundation of the Franklin Institute, a course called Cosmic Rays and Nuclear Physics. At the time researchers were using balloons and ships to determine how the intensity of cosmic rays, which came into the Earth’s outer atmosphere from space, varied according to geomagnetic latitude and the location of the Earth. There were only two locations on Earth –the geomagnetic pole in Antarctica, and a second one in northern Canada – where cosmic rays were not impeded by the earth’s magnetic field. Pomerantz found the graduate course at Bartol fascinating, decided to pursue a Ph.D. in physics, and started a long career that took him both to Antarctica and the Arctic region. It was the International Geophysical Year (IGY), from July 1, 1957 to December 31, 1958, that inspired Pomerantz to concentrate on the polar regions. He and a Canadian colleague built a neutron monitor (something like a nuclear reactor in reverse) to detect sensitive cosmic rays. The Pomerantz monitor was placed on a Swedish ship that went from Gottinberg to Cape Town and back. The experiment was very successful, lasted for some years, and got definitive results on the question of the location of the geomagnetic equator, the point on Earth where cosmic ray intensity would be lowest. Conversely, the geomagnetic pole is the place where the geomagnetic intensity is highest. With a growing reputation, Pomerantz was invited by the Navy Hydrographic Office to put equipment in Project Magnet, an aircraft which produced definitive geomagnetic measurements in fairly close-spaced grids all over the Earth. These advances opened the door for him to participate in the IGY to undertake further cosmic ray research. Concurrently, Pomerantz also loaded an experiment in 1958 aboard Explorer VII, the first satellite to be launched under IGY auspices. James Van Allen, the noted physicist, also loaded some different experiments of his own on Explorer VII, which employed, in part, a Geiger counter. In 1959, encouraged by the progress made on various scientific fronts under the IGY, which ended December 31, 1958, the National Science Foundation established the Office of Polar Programs. In the spring of 1959, Pomerantz received a grant from the National Science Foundation to put a cosmic ray detector in the Antarctic. This was the beginning of his long association with Antarctica. Pomerantz started immediately on his new assignment. A Terry building, a modular unit built with copper shielding inside the whole building, was constructed at the Coast Guard Station at Baltimore, Maryland. Hugo Newberg, a friend from Bartol, joined the project, left immediately in mid-1959 for Antarctica, and oversaw installation of the building at McMurdo Sound in Antarctica. Data was transmitted by teletype using punched paper tape. Pomerantz did not join Newberg in Antarctica until November, 1960. As he arrived at McMurdo, a major solar flare was underway, and, for the first time, data on a solar cosmic ray event was observed at both ends of the earth. McMurdo was considered a 100% Navy base. Pomerantz and the other civilians were considered “visitors,” and stayed at a separate Jamesway hut. In addition to the two centers at Thule and McMurdo, two others were added later, at Swarthmore and the South Pole for a total in time of four neutron detector stations. Once this worldwide network was functioning exciting new discoveries were made. Studies were done on the way the solar wind interacted with cosmic rays, and how it changed with time. Eventually data was collected on three solar cycles. After two very successful years at McMurdo, the Navy decided to build a nuclear reactor there, and within 100 yards of the Cosmic Ray Station. Since such a plant would cause massive interference with the neutron detector, the Cosmic Ray Station was relocated to a completely new, larger, building three miles from the main base. The old building was moved to the South Pole in 1964, and so there were then two Cosmic Ray Detector Stations in Antarctica. That year – 1964 – was designated as the International Quiet Sun Year (IQSY). Pomerantz was the US Chairman of that event. This was envisioned as a successor to the IGY of 1957-58, but it had better funding and a much greater participation. Over 50 nations took part. The South Pole was seen as the best location worldwide for cosmic ray research, and Pomerantz relocated to the South Pole to set up the new station. Over time, Pomerantz spent 26 different summers in Antarctica. Pomerantz and others saw an opportunity to do significant astronomical research at the South Pole. Arnie Wyler, a solar astronomer from Sweden, and Brad Wood, an astronomer from the University of Pennsylvania, joined Pomerantz. The location was ideal for astronomy since there is a constant background – nothing but snow – and any object in the sky is always at the same altitude, and is always there, day after day. Because of the extremely dry atmosphere it seemed particularly well suited to do infrared astronomy. Unfortunately their seven or eight proposals were all turned down. Finally, in 1978, using some surplus equipment from a Swedish observatory, Pomerantz and friends built a solar telescope that was specifically designed for use at the South Pole. Officially it was presented as a part of the cosmic ray program. For the first time anywhere a continuous solar flare patrol was achieved. New pictures were taken every ten minutes for over a week. There was no other place on Earth where this could be done. The results were so impressive that Eric Fossat, a French astronomer, an expert on helio-seismology, secured additional funding so that the new field of solar seismology could also be studied at the Pole. The National Science Foundation (NSF) approved a proposal and this resulted, among other findings, in the best observations ever made of solar oscillations of the sun’s vibrations. It’s the only technique that exists for studying the sun’s interior. One of the telescope pictures appeared on the cover of Nature in January, 1979. That same year a new building was constructed for this project. The outstanding results led to additional funding and support from the National Solar Observatory. Studies of solar oscillations and helio-seismology continued at the South Pole until 1974. In that year the program was shut down since everything had been accomplished that could be done at the time with available technology. In 1975 a new base, “New Pole,” was constructed, and the first one, “Old Pole,” was shut down. Initially no provision was made for cosmic ray facilities at “New Pole, but eventually Pomerantz also secured space there. So there continued to be two cosmic ray stations in Antarctica, one at McMurdo and one at New Pole. This second base at the South Pole became known as Skylab. Through the years equipment was expanded and modernized at both stations. Research on astronomy at the South Pole turned out to be “a spectacular success.” The program was expanded to include infrared or millimeter or sub-millimeter astronomy. In 1984 there was a joint research program with a French team, but the difficulty of getting adequate supplies of liquid helium (needed to cool the detectors) limited its success. Even so enough was accomplished to prove that Skylab was an excellent place to do microwave astronomy. By the time of Pomerantz’s last visit to the South Pole, 38 astronomers were working there, of which 4 or 5 would overwinter. It was decided to build a new observatory. The new AMANDA observatory built at the Pole was named the Martin A. Pomerantz Observatory.

          Scientists Use Google Earth and Crowdsourcing to Map Uncharted Forests        

Scientists Use Google Earth and Crowdsourcing to Map Uncharted Forests

No single person could ever hope to count the world’s trees. But a crowd of them just counted the world’s drylands forests—and, in the process, charted forests never before mapped, cumulatively adding up to an area equivalent in size to the Amazon rainforest.

Current technology enables computers to automatically detect forest area through satellite data in order to adequately map most of the world’s forests. But drylands, where trees are fewer and farther apart, stymied these modern methods. To measure the extent of forests in drylands, which make up more than 40% of land surface on Earth, researchers from UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), World Resources Institute and several universities and organizations had to come up with unconventional techniques. Foremost among these was turning to residents, who contributed their expertise through local map-a-thons.

Technical Challenges, Human Solutions

Traditional remote sensing algorithms detect tree cover in a pixel rather than capturing individual trees in a landscape. That means the method can miss trees in less-dense forests or individual trees in farm fields or grasslands, which is most often the nature of dryland areas.

Note, coarse pixels as shown above may be more efficient for rapidly detecting large scales of deforestation, while individual mapping techniques as described below may be more effective for monitoring land restoration and degradation.

Google Earth collects satellite data from several satellites with a variety of resolutions and technical capacities. The dryland satellite imagery collection compiled by Google from various providers, including Digital Globe, is of particularly high quality, as desert areas have little cloud cover to obstruct the views. So while difficult for algorithms to detect non-dominant land cover, the  human eye has no problem distinguishing trees in the landscapes.  Using this advantage, the scientists decided to visually count trees in hundreds of thousands of high-resolution images to determine overall dryland tree cover.

Local Map-a-thons using Collect Earth

Armed with the quality images from Google that allowed researchers to see objects as small as half a meter (about 20 inches) across, the team divided the global dryland images into 12 regions, each with a regional partner to lead the counting assessment. The regional partners in turn recruited local residents with practical knowledge of the landscape to identify content in the sample imagery. These volunteers would come together in participatory mapping workshops, known colloquially as “map-a-thons.”

To lay the groundwork for the local map-a-thon events the team identified both an entry point, usually a university, that could help recruit participants, as well as a facility with the capacity and internet to host the map-a-thon. Once trained, any given analyst could identify 80 to 100 plots per day.

<p>Example of Collect Earth grid set for data collection.</p>

Quality control was carried out afterwards by comparing the identified land cover with the number of trees counted. For example, if a local participant identified an image as having just three trees but later identified the same image as forest, the researchers knew there was human error and further review was required.

<p>The Collect Earth tool allows users to navigate between multiple windows and select the best imagery for each particular data point</p>

These map-a-thons were designed so that people with first-hand knowledge of local landscapes could participate. No knowledge of remote sensing or any technology beyond internet literacy was required. The expertise needed was the understanding of regional landscape and land use. This practical knowledge of the region was critical as the participants were not only able to count individual trees but also identify the type of land use and trees they saw on the Google Earth images.

This research only “discovered” new forest in the sense that Columbus “discovered” the New World. The drylands forest was always there, and the people who live in the area always knew it was there. In fact, they were the only ones who had the background knowledge to identify subtleties like whether an image of a plant in their region was a shrub or actually a young tree, or if what appeared to be a tree was just a perennial plant. A few common perennial crops, including coffee and banana, looked like shrubs in the satellite images, but local participants had no problem identifying them correctly as perennial crops instead of shrubs, a distinction that would have been impossible with satellite imagery analysis alone.

This human identification component, along with the ability to zoom into sub-meter resolution with cheap and available technology, has helped achieve the breakthrough result of forest cover identification 9 percent higher than previously reported. 

Local Ownership of the Map and the Land

Utilizing local landscape knowledge not only improved the map quality but also created a sense of ownership within each region. The map-a-thon participants have access to the open source tools and can now use these data and results to better engage around land use changes in their communities. Local experts, including forestry offices, can also use this easily accessible application to continue monitoring in the future.

Global Forest Watch (GFW) uses medium resolution satellites (30 meters or about 89 feet) and sophisticated algorithms to detect near-real time deforestation in densely forested area.  The dryland tree cover maps complement GFW by providing the capability to monitor non-dominant tree cover and small-scale, slower-moving events like degradation and restoration. Mapping forest change at this level of detail is critical both for guiding land decisions and enabling  government and business actors to demonstrate their pledges are being fulfilled, even over short periods of time.

The data documented by local participants will enable scientists to do many more analyses on both natural and man-made land changes including settlements, erosion features and roads. Mapping the tree cover in drylands is just the beginning.

Acc-Brittany-RyanThe big SXSW Interactive conference begins tomorrow, which means that techies of all stripes, including our own Laura @ Pistachio Fitton, will be descending on Austin, Texas for four days of ... honestly we're not sure what actually takes place at SXSW, except that supposedly there are panels and meet-ups, and the bars are full of sales bros and tech bloggers and content strategists and PR flacks and social media gurus and hipsters and posers and hipster-posers and poser-hipsters and too many guys with creative facial hair and little startups with no money schmoozing investors with too much money and this year Edward Snowden is going to talk via satellite from his whistleblower lair in Russia and Lady Gaga is doing a show for Doritos which means either that a) SXSW has jumped the shark, or b) Lady Gaga has jumped the shark, or c) both. Oh, and there's enough free booze to fill 100 swimming pools.

stephenfry.jpgThe Global Madness of Blasphemy Laws 

For most of those who are reading this, laws against blasphemy seem like anachronistic, vestigial restrictions on free expression that no longer apply in our modern world. Recent months have reminded us, however, that blasphemy laws are very much a part of the contemporary human experience, and the consequences of violating them can range from absurd to horrifying. Several secularists and dissidents have met grisly ends this year, including Pakistani student Mashal Khan, beaten to death last month by a mob of fellow students who were angry over allegations of blasphemy, and Indian student H. Farook, murdered by a gang of militants over postings to social media about atheism.

The Center for Inquiry has made combatting blasphemy laws around the world a central part of our mission. We even have a special program dedicated to rescuing secular writers and activists in need of escape from imminent threats to their lives. In recent weeks, we have taken on the crisis on several fronts.

1549751494524276483.pngBlasphemy is the focus of the latest issue of Free Inquiry, CFI’s magazine of secular humanist thought. Making its way to newsstands and subscribers now, this issue features a powerful and sobering cover piece by someone who knows a thing or two about the consequences of blasphemy restrictions: Flemming Rose of Denmark’s Jyllands-Posten, which ran the “Danish cartoons” of the Prophet Mohammed in 2005, which were deemed such an offense to religious sentiments that they sparked violent protests across the Muslim world. Rose warns about the international threat of states’ blasphemy laws and how governments are stirring up rage among the people, inciting them to carry out acts of murder such as those that took the lives of Khan and Farook.

The issue also includes an important report by Mirjam van Schaik on the machinations of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, the diplomatic body that seeks to push blasphemy laws beyond borders and into international law.

Blasphemy also became a topic of concern in the west, when beloved actor and humorist Stephen Fry, a longtime advocate of secular causes, became the subject of an investigation by Irish authorities for allegedly committing blasphemy in 2015, when he said some unpleasant things on television about the biblical God’s psychotic behavior. Eventually, the investigation of Fry was dropped, with Irish police citing a lack of outraged victims of Fry’s blasphemy.

DawkinsCFI Board Member Richard Dawkins cleverly stepped into the fracas by reiterating his own “blasphemy” to an Irish newspaper, and dared the authorities to arrest him over it when he next came into the country. He later explained, “I wanted to increase the pressure to repeal this law – partly because the existence of a blasphemy law in a civilised western country like Ireland is taken as an encouraging precedent by some of those countries in the Middle East and Africa, where they have a blasphemy law and it really is enforced.”

Of course, CFI’s diplomatic and international advocacy efforts never stop. For example, CFI President and CEO Robyn Blumner and our public policy director Michael De Dora are signatories on a new petition from the Index on Censorship calling on Denmark to scrap its blasphemy law. Whether these affronts to human rights emerge in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Ireland, or Denmark, and whether they are enforced by the state or by the rage of the mob, we will continue to fight for free expression, for the simple idea that ideas don’t need rights. People do.

 


Screen Shot 2017-05-17 at 11.07.07 AM.pngTrump’s Religious Privilege Theater 

During the past couple of weeks, the Trump administration took one clumsy step backward for secularism, but that didn’t stop an encouraging step forward at the state level.

On May 4 (which weirdly was both the National Day of Prayer and Star Wars Day), President Trump signed his “religious liberty” executive order, through which he claimed to be loosening the restrictions on campaign endorsements by churches and other tax-exempt organizations and providing “relief” to companies that don’t want to take part in the contraceptive mandates of the Affordable Care Act because of religious exemptions.

CFI denounced the move as a “cynical pander to the religious right” and noted that despite the president’s boasts, his order is mainly symbolic. “While this executive order won’t accomplish much in practical terms,” said Michael De Dora in our official statement, “it sends a signal that Trump is looking to reward his conservative evangelical base. But this political payback is divisive and dangerous, blurring the line between church leadership and political operatives.”

ct-congress-endorsemaaaaents-illinois-raja-gutierrez-edit-02As a positive sign of our impact, however, the Center for Inquiry and Michael were both called out by name during a House hearing on the Johnson Amendment, with Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi asking that our statements be put into the official congressional record.

Meanwhile in Oregon, both houses of the state legislature passed a measure that would allow Secular Celebrants, such as those trained and certified by CFI, to solemnize marriages in the state. CFI began this effort in Oregon in 2015 with a bill that passed the state House, worked on similar legislation in Ohio, and have won crucial court victories for Secular Celebrants in Indiana and Illinois. On May 11, the Secular Coalition for America and its Oregon state chapter were successful in securing its passage through the Oregon House and Senate, and the bill is expected to be signed by the state’s Democratic governor.

 

News from HQ and the CFI Community


internz.pngCFI Welcomes 2017 Summer Interns 

The movement to advance science, reason, and secularism is alive with energy among campus groups and student activists. One of the most inspiring aspects of being a part of the Center for Inquiry is how the CFI internship program gives some of those young leaders the opportunity to take their passion and talents beyond the campus and into the broader world, helping them to learn new skills, develop crucial connections, and earn real-world experience in organizing and advocacy.

Last week, we announced our Summer Outreach Interns for 2017.

First is Vicki Smith of Central Michigan University’s Dogma-Free Society, who says, “I’ve spent my college years getting to know myself and the different issues secular and humanist organizations are up against; now I’m ready to take the next step and see what I can do to promote a secular society.”

Next is Andy Ngo of Portland State University and the Freethinkers of PSU. You might remember Andy’s video report of CSICon 2016, in which he discusses his religious background and journey to skepticism.

And working from our Executive Offices in Washington, DC will be legal intern Jaskirat Singh, who has just finished his second year at George Washington University Law School and Elliot School of International Affairs, studying for a JD and MA in Security Policy Studies. Jaskirat has a background in international human rights work, having previously interned for Americans for Democracy and Human Rights in Bahrain.

We look forward to getting to know and working with our new colleagues.

CFI Highlights on the Web and in the Media


  • Screen Shot 2017-05-17 at 11.22.50 AM.pngCFI’s investigative guru Joe Nickell is profiled in a really fun short video by Great Big Story, a new media initiative supported by CNN. “Everything is obvious after it’s been explained,” says Joe.

  • Richard Dawkins is interviewed by The Times, where he discusses religion, his legacy, and in particular his view of the moral status of animals. “There is a speciesist belief that somehow they are only animals, they don’t feel pain,” he says. “But pain doesn’t seem to me to be the kind of thing you need intellect to experience.”
  • At HuffPost, Ronald Lindsay, CFI’s research fellow and former boss, critiques The Benedict Option, the book by conservative thinker Rod Dreher that argues for Christians’ withdrawal from secular society. “What’s so special about recent events that has caused him to decide that now’s the time to sound retreat?” asks Ron. “Same-sex marriage. For Dreher, same-sex marriage is unendurable.”
  • CFI Legal Director Nick Little provides secular perspective in a piece at VICE on a Christian funeral home’s unwillingness to cremate the body of a gay man.
  • 1-CKpTZAudlh0dPz8VOHVxdA.jpegGeorge Ongere, director of CFI Kenya, is interviewed by Humanist Voices about what inspired his work on behalf of reason and against superstition in Africa. “There needs to be a change in mind and thinking,” he says. “Humanism promises this kind of change for Africans to abandon blind faith and focus on the realities of life.”
  • Several outlets covered CFI’s response to Trump’s “religious liberty” executive order, including HuffPost and the Columbus Dispatch (which also features comment from CFI Northeast Ohio’s Monette Richards). Plus, CFI was attacked by the forever-aggrieved Bill Donohue of the Catholic League for our “militant secularism.”

          Lena singt für Deutschland        

Strange und ganz die Alte: Hochkonjunktur des Meinungsjournalismus

Am Montagabend, den 31. Januar, war es soweit. Nachdem wir, die Nation, letztes Jahr Lena Meyer-Landrut als unseren Star für Oslo gefunden und mit dazu beigetragen hatten, dass sie und ihr Siegerlied Satellite zum „Wunder von Oslo“ geworden waren, widmen wir uns nun unserer „nationalen Aufgabe“ für 2011. Stefan Raab schließt mit seiner Sendung Unser Song für Deutschland konsequent an seinen letztjährigen Erfolg Unser Star für Oslo an, der ihm auch den Bayerischen Fernsehpreis beschert hat, dessen Gewinnsumme von 10.000 Euro er auf Lenas Sieg in Oslo gewettet hatte, und eindrucksvoll bewies, dass es möglich ist, mit einem klugen Konzept und den richtigen Möglichkeiten den ESC endlich wieder zu gewinnen. Unser Song für Deutschland ist wieder eine Gemeinschaftsproduktion zwischen ProSieben und NDR und ARD (Privatier trifft Zwangsfinanzierung), hat dieselben Moderatoren und ist in der Mottomelodie und im Visuellen designidentisch mit der Sendung letztes Jahr.

          How To Make Farmers Love Cover Crops? Pay Them        
Environmentalists love "cover crops." These are plants that tolerate cool weather and grow on farm fields after the crops are harvested. They hold the soil in place and are probably the most effective way to keep nutrients in fields, rather than polluting nearby streams. Unfortunately, the average farmer doesn't love these crops quite so much. The Environmental Working Group, a research and advocacy organization, studied satellite images of the Midwest and found that farmers in Iowa and Illinois had planted cover crops on less than three percent of their corn and soybean fields. Indiana's farmers did slightly better, with cover crops on about seven percent of cropland. That's tiny, compared to what's needed to dramatically reduce water pollution from farms. Soren Rundquist, one of the authors of the EWG report, tells The Salt that Iowa's environmental planners want cover crops on at least 60 percent of the state's corn and soybean acres. Illinois has set a similar goal. The number of

 Daylight Robbery

    An East Timorese woman, aged 32, was robbed by two Militia men in their 20's CIVPOL monitors have been called in to assess the situation and conduct an interview.
    On the 27th June 1999 an East Timorese woman aged 32, was robbed in 3road daylight, midday. The Two robbers jumped out of the bushes on her way home for lunch, armed with a gun and machete. One was in front and one behind. They demanded her purse, watch and jewelry. First she refused to hand over anything, so the man in front pushed her then punched her in the stomach. She then gave her valuables, but the men didn't believe that she had given everything. The one behind her pinned her arms behind her while the other one punched her repeatedly in the stomac

h. She passed out and when she woke up, the men had gone. She was hurt quite badly so she had to spend a day in hospital. She was threatened by the men; they said that they would kill her if she informed the police. They were probably Militia as they asked her if she had voted in the independence election and became angry when she said yes. She had never seen the men before.
reasons for incident and description of assailants
    Both the men were in their early 20's and were about 5'6-5'8 inches tall wearing red bandannas. One dressed in camouflage fatigues and the other in faded denims and a white t-shirt, the taller one had a scar down the right cheek.
    The woman was probably robbed as the two men knew, or had heard, that she had voted in the independence election, and wanted to confirm it and hit back at her for doing so.
conclusion \Summary
CIVPOL will pass this information to the local police and said that she should contact them should the men return and threaten her again. CIVPOL  assured the woman that they would patrol her streets more closely.
 
Hijacking
    A plane has been hijacked on route from Kuala Lumpur International Airport to Rome, Italy on 20 July 2001
    Flight IA 504 is hijacked by five armed men twenty minutes into the flight. It is on its way to Rome, Italy from Kuala Lumpur International. The hijackers divert the plane to Bangkok and demand the release of their 6 friends in an East Timorese jail. They threaten to blow up the plane if their demands are not met. The bomb is apparently in the luggage compartment. After 3 hours, the plane lands in Singapore and the hijackers ask for food and water. The plane is then surrounded by Army Special Forces and food and water is given in exchange for female hostages. Negotiations take place between hijackers and local authorities, why say they need 5 hours to arrange the release of their 6 friends. After 5 hours, the authorities refuse to release 6 but agree to 3. 15 hours of negotiations go on and finally the men surrender to the authorities.
Reasons for incident/Description
    The hijackers have hijacked the plane to force the release of their friends in an East Timorese jail. There are five armed men on the plane armed with pistols and possibly a hand grenade. They say there is a bomb in the luggage compartment.
Conclusion/Summary
    After 15 hours of negotiations, there is no breakthrough and the hijackers surrender without any of their demands being met. All hostages are released unharmed.
Hit and Run
    On the main, highway running to Madrid,, northwest of the city of Barcelona, at 10:30PM, on Friday the 2nd February/there has been a hit and run case. Eyewitnesses say it was a 1996, opal grey, Austin Minor car with caravan. The car was heading towards Madrid when a cyclist on the same road was hit. It was raining and visibility was very bad. The cyclist for some reason moved onto the road from the cycling lane and was hit. His cycle was completely crushed, and has left leg and arm were broken, he received minor injuries to his head, even though he was wearing helmet. The victim was wearing cycling gear but did not have any protection from the rain. He was about 18 years old, slim and 5'10" tall. The cyclist was coming from Madrid. The victim was taken to Barcelona hospital and is said to be out of danger. The car was said to have some scratches from the cycle on the left-hand side as well. Due to the poor visibility, the witnesses at the scene of the crime could not read the number plate.
    A search is taking place for the car in Madrid, as it as heading in that direction. The eyewitness said that there were four people in the car and didn't know if there were more in the caravan. By the brief close look he got and poor visibility, the witness thinks they were all men.
Trapped in an Earthquake
    It was 1:00 AM on Friday the 16th December 1990. Almost all the residents of Cyber town were asleep. It was raining very lightly and it was very dark. All of a sudden at 1:02 AM there was a tremor of more than 6.7 on the Richter scale. It lasted for about 3 minutes. All the houses collapsed pulling down telephone and electrical poles. Fires started, as the main gas supply the houses was broken and gas was leaking everywhere. The people, who managed to wake up and run out of their houses, were running around trying to find a safe place. The ones who were injured or trapped were crying out for help. The whole place was in chaos. Police and army personnel (the ones that had survived the earthquake) were called in to help, and take charge of the situation.Out of the total 50 houses in the town at least 40 of the houses were completely destroyed. Those that were not destroyed were damaged very badly. Ambulances from the near by towns were called in to help with the situation, as they were not as badly effected, as they did not fall directly in the earthquake line.

    The army set up temporary tents in order to accommodate the injured and lost, and a mobile unit was put up for immediate relief. Nearby towns and cities sent out relief workers to help with the situation. Food and medicine vas quickly requested for. By 4:00 AM people were either looking for the missing people or burying the dead. There was a slight haze in the sky from all the dust that had been floating around from the crumbling buildings. t would take the people of Cyber town at least 3-6 months to bring things lack to normal for themselves.
Selling  Alcohol
    At dusk on Saturday 29 September 2001, Mr. Abdul Hamid a young man who is 28 years old, the owner of a small restaurant, in downtown Abu Dhabi. His shop was next to the tall building of the central Bank. Even 'though it was a Saturday, and a holiday, he decided to open his small shop, because his business had not been very good and he needed all the extra money to support his large family. He had only five or six customers during the whole day but he was looking forward to the evening when men would come to have drink. Although, being a Muslim country it was permitted to sell the locally brewed Stella beer, from which he could make quite a bit of profit.
    Then around 9:OOPM two men casually dressed came into his shop and asked him for some beer and things to eat. As soon as he had brought their order, they both stood up and caught him and held his hands behind his back. They said that they were from the Religious police, and that it was forbidden by the Sharia law to sell any sort of alcohol on a holiday. They said that ithere had been a new law passed saying that this was the new rule for all public holidays. The penalty for abusing this law was death, or 100 lashes. Abdul Hamid apologized to the policemen saying that he was not aware that this new law had been imposed, he begged the two policemen to forgive him as it was his first offence and begged them for mercy. Both the officers looked at each other and gave the situation a lot of thought, after some time they released him with a very stem warning.


ALLEGED WITCH HACKED TO DEATH
    A 46-years-old woman accused of being a witch was hacked to death in a remote village in the northeastern Indian state of Tripura, the Press Trust of India reported Thursday. The news agency said the woman was known as a I "spinster in the  village because she had remained unmarried. The woman.KuntiDebbarma, lived on her own and was always fairly quiet, reserved and  considered odd to the villagers. She was forcibly removed from her hut in Tuiching village in western Tripura at approximately 4:40pm witnesses said. She was dragged into the middle of the village by 7 of her neighbors who then proceeded to hack her to death using machetes and axes. She had been accused of allegedly practicing sorcery in her village and putting a spell on a newborn baby that had recently died. Police have launched an operation in the remote tribal area to catch Debbarma's neighbors who are now hissing. Witnesses stated that there were 3 women and 4 men in her death. However, villagers have stated that they were unaware of the whereabouts of the missing people. One man stated that the missing neighbors were reportedly in Jhasi, while another male stated he saw them in the next village over. A female informant stated that after the attacks, two men and one of the woman headed southeast on foot, while the other women and one man headed north by bus, she didn't know the whereabouts of the other man involved. Police have been receiving conflicting reports and will continue their search for the attackers. Every year, several women are killed in India at the hands of villagers after being accused of sorcery. Last year there were 213 reported murdered of "accused' witches in India alone.
RAINSTORMS KILL 3, HURT 50

    Early Monday morning at approximately 3:30am, tropical storms blew away over 6,469 mud and thatch houses and knocked down approximately  396 trees in northern Bangladesh, killing three people and leaving nearly 5,332 people homeless, police reported early Tuesday
Morning. The storms were unexpected for many of the villagers and almost all of the people involved had been asleep when the storms hit. one woman and her baby girl were crushed to death when their tin-roofed house collapsed during the storms. The woman and child were apparently alive after the storm ended, but villagers were unable to rescue them before their deaths. One man was killed by lightning while trying to savetwo young manwho were also trapped in the thatch house next to his. Fifty people were injured during the rainstorms in Netrokona, Sylhet and Moulvibazardistricts  according to police reports in Ittefaq and Janakantha. It is unknown how many injured people are being hospitalized at the moment. The storms not only leveled mud and thatch houses, but tin roof houses as well in the farming region 132 kilometers (80 miles) northeast of Dhaka, the national capital. Police officers are Trying to organize search parties to help remove bodies from the rubble in hopes of knowing an exact number of deaths. At this moment the death toil is three, but police fear that once the house rubble has been cleared, the death toll will dramatically increase.

Jail Break
    There were 350 I nmates in Alcatraz Jail, and 60 staff. It was classified as a maximum security jail and escape was considered to be next to impossible.It is situated on an island and is surrounded by water, which is infested with Sharks. The security staff are shuttled to and from the island by ferry twice a day, which a is the only way in and out.However on the night of 3 April 1992, there was a jail break. Twenty of the inmates managed to escape.What happened was, when the evening ferry came to shuttle the day stuff back to the mainland at 5:00 PM, a fire was started in the dining hall by some of the inmates, in the central building. Most staff on duty rushed to the scene and tries to put out the fire. In the meantime, while all the staff were busy with the fire, the twenty who escaped managed to overpower the guards at the main gate and boarded the ferry which was only manned by two guards. they took the ferry to an isolated spot and abandoned it there. Although the local police were informed, and a search was conducted, they managed to escape. A description of each has been given to the central police headquarters and also to all sub-offices.It has been a week since the incident, and there are no clues as the where they are now. Their friends who are still in the jail are not willing to talk or help authorities on this matter.

“UNMIL RADIO”

People around the world like to listen to the radio. People listen to the radio at home, at work, in the car and in the streets. People listen to the news, weather forecast and like to listen to the music. Liberians are no exception to this common tradition. The Civil war in Liberia was over in 2003. People’s lives and hopes turned to good. More Liberians began walking with a radio in their hands listening to the news and music. There are three main radio stations in Monrovia operating on FM frequency: Music radio on frequency 90, 2. Official radio of the United Nations Mission in Liberia on frequency 91, 5; and World news radio station on frequency 103. The transmission of these radio stations is also well heard in neighboring countries like Sierra Leone, Guinea and Ivory Coast.

A young Liberian man called John was listening to the UNMIL radio. He heard that the nationwide campaign on Disarmament was launched on 3-d of December 2003. He also heard that the campaign was coordinated by the UNMIL radio with intention to inform combatants and communities in Liberia about this program.

           John is a 28 year old Liberian citizen; he has been married for 10 years and has three kids: two sons and a daughter. The daughter is 9 years old, the oldest son is 7 and the youngest is 5.  John and his family still currently live at his father’s house in Monrovia. John finished high school in May 1993 and received his certificate upon completion. During the war he was unemployed and now he is still looking for a job. Like many Liberians he usually played football on weekends and was listening to the radio. His favorite radio station is the Music radio.
On 21st of December 2004, John went to the center of Monrovia to look for a job as a security officer at the shop. He walked into a supermarket which was trading electronic goods. While he was waiting for a manager of the supermarket to ask him if he would hire him, John heard an announcement on the UNMIL radio about recruitment of police officers for the Liberian National Police Service. John left the supermarket without even having a response from the manager. John decided to become a police officer. Walking home John saw a poster on the wall of the Police station located in the center of Monrovia and read that applicants, who successfully meet basic criteria in fitness, writing, psychological and medical tests would be invited for interview at the Police HQ.   

           When John came home he spoke with his father about his intention to become a police officer. His father said that he would be proud if John was a police officer. John successfully passed all necessary tests and on Monday, 17th of January 2005 he was invited to come to the police Headquarters for interview.    

The following conversation is the dialogue between a police officer and John.
 
 â€œPolice medal”

    On 14 January 2005, a journalist from the Police magazine called “To Serve and protect” went to see the magazine Director and proposed writing an article about the history of police medals awarded to citizens for their assistance to the Police. The presumed name of the article was “Police Medal”.

    On 16 January 2005, the journalist went to the Police museum located at Main street number74 to conduct research for the article. While in the museum, he was pleased to see pictures, letters of appreciation, and medals given to young citizens, for their assistance to the Police during investigation of crimes.

    In the records section of the museum, the journalist read that on May 7, 1947 the Chief of Police reported the kidnapping of an 8 year old girl, when she was walking home from school. He said that this crime might have gone unresolved if there had been no cooperation between the citizens and the police. Two youths, 11 and 15 years old, witnessed the girl being abducted and took down the registration plate number, PK 5386, of the vehicle used to commit the crime. This led to the immediate arrest of the criminals. The girl was freed and returned to her parents.

    The common practice of the 20th century was to send letters of thanks to the citizens, but the Police Commission decided thate wanted something special to recognize young people who helped the Police department. It was decided that a "Board of Police Commission Medal" should be formed to plan for the presentation in such cases. Medal designers were instructed to enquire as to the design and costs.

The following resolution was presented and passed unanimously. The medal was to be made of bronze with the words "Police Commission Award" on the front side of the medal and the reverse side was to specify the name of the recipient as well as the date of the service rendered and the words "For praiseworthy service in law enforcement". The estimated cost of production of this medal was 250 dollars.

The medal presentation was always made in the office of the Mayor, who also served as  Chairman of the Police Commission. The first ceremony took place on 26th of November, 1947. The medals were awarded to two boys 11 and 15 years old, who reported the abduction of a girl along with vital clues that led to the immediate arrest of the suspects.

    The next award was presented in 1948 on April 15th to a 17 year old male, who had witnessed an armed robbery attempt at a jewelry shop.  The young male began following the gunman. He saw two Police officers and informed them of the circumstances and they were able to arrest the gunman without incident.

    Before publishing the article, the director of the Police magazine asked the journalist to come to his office to brief him about the article. The following conversation is the dialogue between the director of the Police magazine and the journalist.

The Police officers observed that there were two men fighting. Some of the people from the crowd were hitting one of them  whom they believed was guilty. He was bleeding from the head. Police officers decided to stop the car. It was very obvious, that if the police patrol would not stop, the perceived offender’s life would have been in danger.  It was well known from police sources that 95 mob justice cases had been registered during the past 6 months. Many of these cases had fatal results. The fighters and the crowd were acting aggressively and were very excited. Any step made by the police towards the crowd was very dangerous. 

The team leader of the police patrol, using the loud-speaker system warned the mob to stop fighting. It had diverted the attention of the crowd for a moment. There was no time for hesitation. Police officers rushed into the crowd and took the fighters into a police car. Then they drove to the nearest Police station, located at the airport grid reference LG 307-692. On their way, the team leader of the police patrol gave first aid to the victim and bandaged his head. The driver of the patrol car sent a radio message to the Airport Police Station, reporting the fighting case, adding, that they would be arriving at the Police Station in 10 minutes.

When the police patrol arrived to the Police Station the fighters were taken by the duty officer to the interrogation room. The team leader of the patrol car was asked by the commander of the Airport police to proceed to the police station in order to give details as to what had happened.  During interrogation the two men involved in the case were asked why they were fighting. The man with the injured head said, that he was 35 years old, lived on Green Street number 81. He was the employee of the telephone company called “Lone star”. He also stated that he had never seen the offender before. He then said that he left the house at 07.30hrs for work, but was attacked by the offender. He stated that the offender accused him of being a war criminal and then hit him on the head with an iron pipe. Immediately people from neighboring houses rushed to the scene. Then the police arrived to the scene. The Airport police commander asked the patrol team leader to send the driver of the patrol team to the location of the incident and to find the iron pipe for evidence. The driver of the patrol team returned to the scene and found the iron pipe with blood stains, lying on the grass. The Police patrol continued the shift and drove to the forensic laboratory to deliver this exhibit for forensic examination.
 After the shift was over at 19.00 hrs., the team leader of the patrol team and the driver came to their office to write a report about the results of the shift.

The driver of the police car drove in the direction of the gun fire. On the radiothe team leader requested for a back up. At 13.10 hrs the Police patrol arrived at house # 59 on Stadium Street. The Police saw the barrel of a rifle sticking out from the window of this house, directed towards the street. The officers were not able to see who was holding the rifle because of the window curtain. The back up police unit arrived at 13.20 hrs and surrounded the house. The team leader of the patrol unit loudly gave the verbal command to whoever was in the house to throw the rifle out of the window and walk slowly out of the house with his hands up in the air. No sound or movement came from the house and the rifle remained in the same position.  The team-leader warned the gunman, that if he did not follow the previously given verbal command, the police would open fire. Again, there was no response from inside of the house.

    At 13.30 hours the back-up unit began an assault on the house. As they entered the house, they observed that nobody was there. The rifle was resting on the window with the barrel pointing towards the street and the butt of the rifle was held on the back-rest of a chair. The police made a quick search of the house and discovered that nobody was there.  They found only the rifle, two empty bullet cases on the floor near the window and blood stains on the chair.

    The police did not take anything from the scene, as the forensic group had not arrived.
The team leader and the driver of the patrol car knocked on the door of the neighboring house. After approximately 10 minutes a 60 year old woman opened the door. She was wearing a green dress and a black scarf on her head. She said that she did not want to open the door because she was afraid of the gunfire near the area of her house. She stated that when the shooting started, she counted a total of 7 gunshots. The woman also saw three masked men of a muscular build shooting in the direction of her neighbor’s house. When the gunfire ended, she stated that she saw that masked men took her neighbor from the house and placed him into a gray colored minibus. The witness was sure that they drove towards the airport. She also noticed that her neighbor was wounded and that his right shoulder was bleeding.
The patrol team remained at the scene to secure the evidence while waiting for the arrival of the forensic group.

    The forensic group arrived at the scene at 14.00 hrs. They made a search of the area and found more 5 empty bullet cases near the fence of the house. The forensic team took the rifle, all empty bullet cases and samples of the blood stains removed from the chair into custody for further examinations.
Later in the shift, the patrol unit heard on the radio, that the suspected minibus was stopped at a check point near the Airport. The suspects were arrested and charged for unlawful possession of weapons and kidnapping. The kidnapped man was taken by the airport police to the hospital.

    The following conversation is the dialogue between the chief of police and the team leader of the Police patrol.


“STRANGE VISITOR”.

    Newly appointed Regional Police Chief was expected to report for duty on Monday 28 of March 2005 at 08.00 hrs. Before showing up for duty officially he conceived a plan to check how duty officers in different Police stations perform their duties in an unusual situation.

    On rainy Friday evening at 18.30 hrs on March 25, 2005 he put on civilian clothes and went to the Police station # 5 at grid reference MG 497 – 551.

    The male duty officer replied that he could not file a complaint, but he could call and ask investigation officer of the Police station to come and speak regarding the incident. The visitor said that he did not wish to speak with the investigation officer, but would like to receive a complaint form, with which he could document his complaint in writing and forward it to the appropriate agencies. Then he removed a digital voice recorder from his right pocket and asked the duty officer if he could document via audio recorder his refusal to allow him to receive a complaint form.

    This made the duty officer very angry and he told the visitor to leave or he would be arrested. The visitor promptly left the Police Department without revealing the nature of the complaint. He entered his car a white sedan license # MK 5337 and drove towards the regional police headquarters. As the visitor left, the duty officer called the investigation officer at the regional Police HQ on telephone and reported about this strange visitor. At approx. 19.45 hrs of the same evening the complainant stopped his car at the regional Police headquarters, located at Flower Street # 62. He approached the main desk in the duty room and informed the female duty officer that he would like to receive a complaint form for the purpose of reporting a citizen’s complaint against a police officer.

He was about 18 years of age, slim build, approximately 175 centimeters tall with shaved head. The officers immediately notified an ambulance to respond to the location to transport him to the hospital. 

A male approached the Police patrol unit and said that it was him, who called the police about the mob justice case. He said that his name was David; he was 35 years old and resides at Mango Street number 12. He said that the man sitting on the ground was a thief who had stolen a Nokia mobile phone from the mobile telephone shop in which he, the witness, has been working as a technician for the last two years. The witness then pointed to three men all about 25 years old standing at the side of the road. Two men were unarmed and one was armed with a wooden stick. The witness said that he saw that the victim was hit with a wooden stick a number of times by the third suspect.

He stated that these men were the first who caught the thief and beat him with hands and  wooden stick. Immediately people from the street rushed to the scene to punish the thief. Upon seeing the police officers look in their direction, two of the suspects fled in the direction of the shore of the Atlantic Ocean which was not far away. The third suspect dropped the wooden stick and tried to escape in the crowd. He was a black male, approximately 180 centimeters tall, dressed in blue jeans, green shirt and red cap. The bright colors of his clothes and cap made him visible to the police. The Police patrol officers gave a chase and caught the suspect. They also recovered the wooden stick with fresh blood stains.  The other two suspects escaped by running into a motor boat and sped in the Ocean.  The Police patrol officers handcuffed the captured suspect and charged him for assault and causing serious injuries to the victim.
At 10.30hrs, an ambulance arrived and attended to the victim. The doctor said that the he had suffered massive trauma to his head and shoulders caused by rocks and wooden stick.  The injured male was taken to the Central hospital for medical treatment.  The Police patrol unit reported to the Police headquarters with the captured suspect. The witness was requested to come to the police station for interview the same day at 14.30 hrs.

          â€œAnd Now For Our Latest Weather, Meteorologist (insert name here) Reporting” ~~        

Yesterday’s weather forecasters were so funny, but I don’t think they meant to be.  In the course of an hour, the first one said, “Oh, it looks like a blizzard is going to pound our city.”  About 15 minutes later on his next report, he said, “Well, folks, I don’t think we’ll see more than a couple of inches of the white stuff, so no worry after all.”  On his next appearance, he said, “The satellite programs are now showing that the storm is going to miss us completely, but the coastline will see some snow.”  This morning’s paper ran this very short blurb, “I blew it, yes, I blew it.”

It started snowing a little after 2pm yesterday and has never stopped. The news says we’re at almost a visibility of 0, but I can see up the street, into my back yard, my neighbors, and even the squirrel that’s running the cable wire. Maybe that newscaster is the same person doing the weather from yesterday.  Well, he’s having fun so we’ll leave him alone.  I will mention that yesterday before the snow even dropped the first flake, our governor declared a state of emergency. I am still laughing. Watching all the affiliates of major stations on our local system is like watching a game of Can You Top This.

Now the snow is coming down fast and furiously and it’s very beautiful, but the newest report is calling for another 6 inches of the stuff today. In this latest report, the weatherman said, “Did you know that historically we only see a white Christmas here every 20 years or so”, only to be followed up by his cohort saying in the same breath, “Well, if you recall, last year at Christmas we had over 30 inches of snow”, and the first weatherman could only reply, “Oh yeah, that’s right. Well, there goes that theory.” I tell you, the news has been a joy to watch today and I’ve gotten some great chuckles.  I’m giving today’s prize to guy #2.

The little birds are struggling hard to find food today.  I could see them under the Leland Cypress scratching away at the snow for a glimpse of a seed or two.  I went outside on my back porch and took a big platter of seed and a couple of saucers of water for them.  One of them must have been a lookout and sounded the announcement to the rest because about 5 minutes later, my porch was swamped with all sorts of birds.  Darn shame I couldn’t get a photo of them without them flying away. I tried and tried but they always saw that camera.  It’s ok. They have food now and Sam and Lucy have something to watch to occupy their time.  They were sick of the TV weathermen anyway.

          2010 Jaguar XFR        
Challenging the rules and standing out from the crowd, the new XFR fuses sports car styling and high-performance with the refinement and sophistication of a luxury sedan.

It is a defining example of Jaguar’s dedication to creating beautiful fast cars-and with a magnificent new engine, that are quite simply the best ever setting new standards across the board.
When it was introduced last year, the all-new XFR was soon recognized as a dramatic expression of a bold new Jaguar design language.  It also soon became apparent that here as a car where the driving experience exceeded the expectations created by the striking exterior styling.


Now, the new XFR takes this driving experience to new levels, shifting the balance even further towards dynamic super high performance while still retaining the XF’s core values as a refined and luxurious sports sedan.


Power comes from an all-new 5.0 liter DOHC direct-injected V8 with an integrated roots-type twin vortex supercharger utilizing twin-intercoolers that generates 510hp and 461lb.ft. of torque.
Immediately recognizable thanks to unique 20X9in Nevis alloy wheels with Jaguar Supercharged engraving and wrapped with Dunlop’s finest ultra-high-performance tires, a new front end design with a centered mesh grille with the Jaguar’s growling signature head, beautifully formed lamp clusters with Bi-Xenon adaptive headlamps, revised lower chrome air intake, side intakes to cool down the giant 14.9in. internally ventilated discs clamped with six-piston calipers, two working hood louvers, front fender heat extractors, four polished tailpipes, an aerodynamically functional rear spoiler, coupe-like profile with a slingshot C-pillar surrounded by a thick chrome strip, and deeper side sills, the new 2010 XFR is also the first XF to carry ‘R’ badging.


This new mighty engine gives the XFR a 0-60mph time of only 4.7sec.  More relevant in everyday driving, an excellent indicator of the XFR’s great flexibility is the time it takes to accelerate from 50-70mph, just 1.9sec.
Sound quality is a key characteristic of all Jaguars and is one particular aspect that customers relish. 

The new XFR has received special attention to deliver the required V8 intake sound character commonly absent on supercharged engines.  Intake manifold pressure pulsations are fed into an acoustic filter at the rear of the engine that is tuned to ‘tenor C’, with the output from the filter ducted into the cabin.  The filter is controlled by the engine management system which allows the acoustics to enter the cabin only under certain conditions, such as when the engine is accelerating hard, thus maintaining the desired sound quality at all times.  It is music to any performance enthusiast’s ears!


Mated to the more powerful supercharged engine is an enhanced version of Jaguar’s acclaimed ZF 6HP28 electronically controlled, six-speed automatic transmission.  Additional clutch plates and an upgraded torque converter are added to the XFR model to facilitate the extra power.

Enhancing the enjoyment and thrilling ride offered by the new XFR is fully independent suspension, control arms, coil springs, gas-charged shocks and anti-roll bar up front with a multi-link rear that features coil springs, gas-charged shocks and an anti-roll bar.  The new changes to the XFR’s chassis dynamics come from two new advanced technologies, Adaptive Dynamics and Active Differential Control, which gives a more comfortable, and controlled ride when needed or by turning off the system you can let the rear slide when slicing through steep curving roads.


Active Differential Control (ADC) with traction-only functionality and handling functionality is an electronically controlled alternative to the traditional, wholly mechanical differential, offering more subtle control strategies.

ADC can vary its locking torque (and therefore the proportion of torque to each driven wheel) depending on surface conditions and power applied.  Its control strategies optimize traction at each wheel, improving acceleration on low-grip surfaces while also enhancing cornering ability.  ADC has no adverse effect on either refinement or stability-where the traditional, mechanical differential can compromise stability under hard applications of power, demanding more corrective input from the driver.  Whereas a mechanical differential is permanently active, the XFR’s new ADC system is switched off when not required, so unlike the mechanical alternative, it does not risk undesirable understeer, and creates no issues with noise, vibration or harshness (NVH) at low speeds.

The differential is operated by an internal electric motor and ‘ball-and-ramp’ mechanism, and contains a multi-plate clutch, which transmits or ‘vectors’ torque to the wheel with the most grip.  The multi-plate clutch assembly is designed to prevent excessive differential slip, but differs fundamentally from a conventional traction control which uses the brakes to counteract slip after it has occurred.


Adaptive Dynamics (AD) is a highly sophisticated active damping system which automatically adjusts suspension damper settings to suit both road conditions and the way in which the car is being driven.  By removing the need for compromise between a fixed, softer setting for ride comfort and a fixed, firmer setting for tauter body control and handling, AD allows the balance between rides and handling to be optimized whatever the circumstances.  Unlike earlier systems with only a small number of steps in the damper settings, it offers a progressively variable damping strategy between wide extremes, to deliver a comfortable but sporty ride with impressively sharp handling responses to your inputs.

The three primary functions of AD are to control vertical movement, roll rate and pitch rate of the body.  It does this by analyzing induced body motions one hundred times a second, and setting each damper to an appropriate level in order to maintain a constant and level body attitude, thereby optimizing control without compromising ride.  Also one hundred times a second, it predicts the roll-rate due to steering inputs, and selectively increases damping forces to reduce that roll rate-improving handling feel and driver confidence-as well as analyzing fore and aft pitch rates due to throttle and braking inputs, and again varies damping forces to reduce pitch, further improving comfort and control.

Additionally, AD improves ride by monitoring wheel position five hundred times a second and automatically increases damping rate as the suspension approaches the limits of its travel.  Similarly, it controls wheel ‘hop’ by varying damping to move any wheel out of a natural bouncing frequency, again benefitting ride comfort, handling and even grip.

The new XFR also features Handling functionality, which is unique in this class.  In conjunction with the DSC Off option and JaguarDrive Control with Dynamic Mode, this supplements all the advantages of Traction Only Functionality with a number of more driver-focused dynamic characteristics.  Dynamic Mode modifies the throttle, stability and transmission parameters, and also modifies the AD responses.

The combination of ADC and Dynamic mode with DSX Off allows controllable power-on oversteer, and improves off-throttle stability, allowing quicker, more spirited cornering when you want to take the new XFR to its limits of adhesion.  It can also improve stability in situations such as an emergency lane-change maneuver at high speed and, in combination with DSC, reduce the brake interventions which the more enthusiastic driver might see as intrusive. 

So working with DSC, the TCS traction control system and ABS braking function, ADC can significantly improve overall vehicle performance, and provide even more precise driving feel.  It is amazing how quickly the XFR reacts to my inputs at the wheel and at the throttle when the systems are turned on or off.  It is the perfect combination of electronic intervention when wanted and when no wanted to take the XFR to its limits with no electronic intervention.  The perfect Jaguar!


Improving handling and response even more is the new ‘fast ratio’ steering rack, and additionally benefits from the further improvement front-to-rear aerodynamic balance offered by a new rear spoiler and deep front bumper.  The wider stance, lower chassis height and its low overall aerodynamic drag coefficient of only 0.29 contributes to both low wind noise and inherent high-speed stability.  Contributing even more is the already stiff body shell, the stiffest in its class, is a new rear subframe, a trunk cross-brace and a front cross brace.

Quickly and safely slowing the new XFR down from speed are massive 14.9in. front and 13.6in. internally ventilated power brakes.  The front discs are clamped with 6-piston calipers while the rear features four-piston calipers.  Enhancing braking power and control are standard ABS, Brake Assist and Electronic Brake Force Distribution.  The pedal feel is very linear, a solid feel all the way from high speed to stop.  These brakes completed the circle of super-high-performance acceleration and handling prowess.

The interior cabin truly matches the sportiness, comfort, and luxury under the skin of the new XFR.  It is both modern, individual and uniquely Jaguar and hints at the car’s super-performance.  It features a full soft grain leather interior standard including suede on the pillars and headliner.  An electric sunroof to let in more air and sunlight when desired, and a new Dark Oak veneer set on the dashboard and door trim.  Its new 18X14-way, heated/cooled front adjustable sports seats have newly shaped electrically adjustable squab bolsters for significantly improved lateral support at higher cornering speeds.  Each XFR seat, front and rear, has the ‘R’ logo embroidered on it squab and the front seats have leather seat-back map pockets. 

The leather-trimmed, heated, power tilting/telescoping, 3-spoke steering wheel feels perfect in your hand and is the right size for quick inputs.  It also features its own ‘R’ logo at the bottom.  The dashboard introduces a unique, dark mesh aluminum finish, and another discreet ‘R’ badge on the passenger side of the instrument panel.  The easy to see instrument cluster’s speedometer and tachometer have the unique sporting signature of red dial pointers and carry the ‘supercharged’ motif.  At startup, the ‘R’ logo appears on the Touch-screen as part of the XFR’s ‘driver handshake’ sequence.


The XFR is packed with user-friendly technologies such as full shift-by-wire transmission controlled by the JaguarDrive Selector, plus adaptive cruise control with Automatic Speed Limiter plus a radar-based Blind Spot Monitor warning you when there is another vehicle nearby in a different lane, and a rear parking aid TV camera with a clear view of the area behind the car on the Touch Screen while in reverse.  The Touch-screen is now upgraded with on-screen guidance lines that move according to steering wheel angle to indicate the area into which the car will reverse.  The Jaguar navigation system now includes turn-by-turn instructions in the message center.  An Acoustic Laminated Windscreen is also set in place to help lower outside noise levels.

The XFR also comes with the incredible Bowers & Wilkins 440-watt system with Dolby ProLogic II surround sound and 14 speakers.  The Portable Audio Interface allows simple, direct connection of iPod and MP3 players with full control via the Touch-screen or steering wheel-mounted controls.  JaguarSense allows touch-sensitive operation for the glovebox release and interior lights-and those lights feature soft, Phosphor Blue interior mood lighting with Halo illumination around the key switch packs to ensure easy and positive night-time operation. 

Digital and SIRIUS satellite radio with HD is also standard.  Other standard equipment not mentioned above includes all-express up/down windows, dual-zone climate control through the Touch-screen, electronic parking brake, variable-rate wipers/washers, center console with three cupholders, storage slots in each door, rear air vents to more directly channel cool or heated air to the rear seats including a pull-down armrest with dual cupholders, self-dimming rearview mirror, 2-person memory seats/outside mirrors, new exterior mirror design offers aerodynamic improvements plus improved functionality with its LED side repeaters, Jaguar signature door scuff plates, thick cut-pile carpeting with front and rear floor mats including the Jaguar logo leaping cat embroidered up front, dual map lamps, grab handles above each door for easy entry/exit and dual, lighted vanity mirrors.

To keep all safe in the event of a collision is standard safety features including front/rear crush zones, steel beams in each door, tire pressure monitoring system, anti-theft engine immobilizer, driver and front passenger front and side airbags, active head restraints, side curtain airbags for all outboard seats, 3-point safety belts with front pretensioners/load limiters, latch restraint anchor system, and remote security system.

The new 2010 Jaguar XFR is a ‘tour d’ force’ in super-high-performance driving with elegant, luxury on the inside.  Jaguar has left nothing to the imagination to what a super performing luxury car should be fitted with-a unique, elegant and sporty exterior style, interior refinement on par with any other car in its class, and the powertrain, suspension, and brakes to back it all up.  The Jaguar engineers and designers have accomplished an excellent task of bringing Jaguar’s mid-size sedan up and through ‘world-class’ driving dynamics and interior luxury.  The new 2010 XFR is priced at only $79,150.00.

Honda has unveiled today the 2011 Honda Accord Sedan and the 2011 Honda Accord Coupe and announced that both models will go on sale at the middle of this August. The 2011 Honda Accord Sedan and Coupe receive significant updates including improved fuel economy, enhanced exterior and interior styling. Accord offers a unique balance of style, performance, efficiency and value specific to each individual model.

Improvements to vehicle aerodynamics, engine friction and transmission gear ratios all contribute to significant fuel economy improvements. The EPA fuel-economy ratings for the 2.4-liter four-cylinder Sedan models equipped with an automatic transmission improve by 2 mpg in the city and 3 mpg on the highway, for a city/highway rating of 23/34 mpg. As for the 3.5-liter V-6, preliminary EPA fuel-economy ratings for the Sedan are 19/30 mpg city/highway mpg, an improvement of 1 mpg in highway driving.

The exterior changes are mostly focused on the front fascias, which now use the design language introduced by the more or less eye-delighting Accord Crosstour. Both versions have received a new front grille and revised bumpers. The cars also comes with redesigned rear bumpers, new lightweight alloy rims, while the sedan’s tail lights have been redesigned.

Interior improvements concern the repositioning of the climate-control buttons on the left side of the control stack, closer to the driver for ease-of-use, with less-frequently used buttons now located on the right side. In addition, all models get new seat fabrics and an updated instrument panel design.
