A Tale Of Two Countries

Interesting title, reminds one of that era when ‘reason’ tried to turn the world upside down, ending with loses of many ‘crowns’, and beginning the present age of the mob ruled by trader banker oligarchy………………CO2 definitely one tool that is brandished for their enrichment which rears its head at every change in the weather.

Synchrotron-light for Experimental Science and Applications in the Middle East (Sesame) project,

Background

http://www.materialstoday.com/view/14308/open-sesame-comment/

(…)The project to build Sesame has been running for around 15 years, and has weathered many political storms and changes of government. But it is still going strong. It is this durability, say those involved, that makes it such a powerful symbol of what is possible in the region when politics takes a back seat. Many other science collaborations are undertaken more out of necessity than choice, for example on seismology or water desalination, and are vulnerable to political whims. But even when relations between Israel and Turkey hit the rocks over the debacle of the Gaza flotilla earlier this year, Sesame was unaffected.

There is currently no synchrotron light source in the Middle East, although the need for one was first suggested 25 years ago by Pakistani Nobel laureate Abdus Salam. In 1997 it was suggested that Germany should donate components from the soon-to-be-decommissioned BESSY I facility in Berlin, and with backing from UNESCO Sesame was on its way.

Jordan won the right to host Sesame in a competition with Armenia, Cyprus, Palestine and Turkey, and provided the land as well as the money to construct the buildings to house the accelerator complex and associated infrastructure. Israel, which as the most scientifically advanced country in the region may have made a more natural home for such a project, decided against hosting, to make it more attractive for other Arab countries to join.

But the politics of the collaboration are not what drives the participants. In fact, politics are rarely discussed at council meetings. The focus is on the science, and ensuring it is of the highest quality. That, says Salman Salman, a professor of physics at Al Quds University in Jerusalem, is what will keep the project going long term.(…)  2010 article linked here.

By David Shukman
Science editor, BBC News

(…)After years of doubts about the project’s feasibility, construction is now at an advanced stage and most of the next round of finance is secured. The first science could start as early as 2015.

The synchrotron, which acts in effect like a giant microscope, will be used by researchers to study everything from viruses to new drugs to novel materials.

Synchrotrons have become an indispensable tool for modern science with some 60 in use around the world, almost all of them in developed countries, and this will be the first in the Middle East.(…)

 

 

 

(…)Synchrotrons work by accelerating electrons around a circular tube, during which excess energy is given off in the form of light – from X-rays to infrared – which is diverted into the beamlines. By focusing the intense light onto samples, the tiniest structures can be mapped in great detail.

The idea for Sesame got off the ground when a German synchrotron known as Bessy was being dismantled and a Stanford University professor, Herman Winick, suggested it should not be scrapped but shipped to the Middle East instead.

Prof Winick points to the role of synchrotrons in Brazil, South Korea and Taiwan in generating local scientific expertise and reversing the “brain drain” of talent and says a similar effect is possible in the Middle East.(…)   November 25, 2012 article linked here.

 

 

 

 

UN Drug Czar: States can’t legalize Marijuana under International Law..who runs the USA?

Follow The Money

http://ht.ly/funES

The president of the UN’s International Narcotics Control Board (INCB), Raymond Yans, wrote a threatening letter to the U.S. government to challenge marijuana legalization in Colorado and Washington.

Apparently the voters in Colorado and Washington were unaware that they would have to not only fight off the federal government, but global drug czars as well in their effort to exercise their local sovereignty.

Mr. Yans stated that “these developments are in violation of the international drug control treaties, and pose a great threat to public health and the well-being of society far beyond those states”.

Yans says marijuana legalization sends the wrong message to youths and society, “Legalization of cannabis within these states would send wrong and confusing signals to youth and society in general, giving the false impression that drug abuse might be considered normal and even, most disturbingly, safe.”

Yans reminds the United States that they agreed to…

The Unmasking of Maine....and Beyond

Charlotte Thompson Iserbyt served as the head of policy at the Department of Education during the first administration of Ronald Reagan.

While working there she discovered a long-term strategic plan by the tax exempt foundations to transform America from a nation of rugged individualists and problem solvers to a country of servile, brainwashed minions who simply regurgitate whatever they’re told.

This exclusive interview with Charlotte Iserbyt explains how conditioning/training under the globalist Elite agenda has replaced traditional education, leading to a deliberate dumbing down of America. She further explains how Reagan signed agreements merging the U.S. and Soviet systems under the United Nations banner, turning over education and many other areas of public policy to global control.

This exposé is a must see for anyone who wants to truly know why the education system is deliberately crafted to produce human drones with no critical thinking whose only…

Rising China and Thoughts on Economies and Populations

Looks to me as if Jim Rodgers prognostications about China, Singapore, and Asia as being the center of financial power are coming true.

Here are two supporting financial stories and a third interesting sociological story;

#1

Fears of Hard Landing Dead as China Economy Rebounds

2012-11-22 — cnbc.com

“”It’s slightly surprising to see dramatic improvement in new export orders. We can’t see where this demand is coming from. If we’d seen a material improvement in the U.S. and euro zone it might make sense but there’s been no real change in global economy,” [Thornton] said.”

Hummmm, it has been noted that at a certain point China would no longer need the US and the rest of the consuming nations to support and finance their eminence in material world power. The above article indicates that China has another paradigm that is not well known to common main stream economists of the West, the China dragon is indeed able to sustain itself with the raw materials and technologies they have bought and developed and copied from the rest of the world as well as their own rich resources.

#2

China Will Build the Tallest Building In the World in Just 90 Days

These are the company headquarters in China. They call them Broad Town. Yes, that’s a huge pyramid at the bottom.

#3

Singapore is world’s least emotional country, poll finds

Never mind its temperate 28C weather, low unemployment rate and high per-capita GDP – Singapore is the most emotionless society in the world, according to a new Gallup poll, beating the traditionally po-faced Georgia, Lithuania and Russia in a survey of more than 150 nations.

Asking respondents questions such as “Did you feel well-rested yesterday?”, “Were you treated with respect all day yesterday?” and “Did you smile or laugh a lot yesterday?”, the survey found that Singaporeans were the least likely to reveal experiencing any emotions at all.

Just 36% of Singaporeans reported feeling positive or negative emotions on a daily basis, while 60% of Filipinos recorded regularly feeling both – the highest response rate of any country worldwide.

“If you measure Singapore by the traditional indicators, they look like one of the best-run countries in the world,” Gallup’s Jon Clifton was quoted as saying in a Bloomberg report on the survey. “But if you look at everything that makes life worth living, they’re not doing so well.”

 

 

 

Lots to muse upon here, quality of life issues, how shall we then live?

It is a wonder how determined the planners of the world order via UN Agenda 21 are to stack and pack humanity into ever de-humanizing cities and towers when there is abundant land to be developed on this beautiful blue ball called Earth for according to one theory at least 35 billion people with present technologies (if wars were eliminated and the ‘greater good’ was really the goal of governments and ptb).

Here’s a few links on population theories;

http://www.scientificamerican.com/podcast/episode.cfm?id=how-many-people-can-the-earth-hold-11-02-21

http://discovermagazine.com/1992/nov/howmanypeoplecan152

http://vox-nova.com/2011/10/30/how-many-people-can-the-earth-support-some-thoughts/

 Joel Cohen, who actually wrote a book on it, notes, the only reasonable answer is, “It depends.” The problem is so complex, with so many variables (think only about the vast discrepancy in resource consumption between one person and the next), that no one can actually give any serious answer to it.

 

 

China signed onto the population control band wagon to gain the industry and technology and financial powers to pull themselves into the modern world. Henry Kissinger and bankers of the western world cabal made them a deal they could not resist.  Fast forward to today, the Asian shift has succeeded. What happens next bears watching and studying how Asia’s and China’s leaders play their pieces  the world’s game of world order(s) now that the United States has been de-industrialized.

Is China about to scrap its one-child policy?

Government think tank urges leaders to allow two children per family by 2015

# Unpopular birth restrictions introduced in 1980 when population was rapidly expanding

# Has led to huge gender imbalance – as parents favour boys over girls – and contributed to aging workforce

# Proposal to phase out the policy put forward by officials close to the Chinese government

# Two-child policy planned for 2015 and all birth restrictions could be lifted by 2020

Yes indeed, lots to muse upon in the ‘modern world’ we live in today.

Ron Paul on Big Government’s Power Grab in Wake of Disasters

The last thing the victims of Sandy need is more big government.

It is instructive to hear FEMA officials say that they have to take time to organize their rescue and aid programs to “make things go quicker”. Is that not an oxymoronic statement?

Their insistence upon control causes unnecessary delays and costs lives and much suffering while FEMA runs up and down the roads with clipboards making lists of what and where to go to work.

While the local communities and neighbors already know the needs and territories, they don’t have to stop up the works for days or weeks to be able to help clean and rescue and feed those in need.

Also read Aaron Dykes article;  http://www.infowars.com/as-society-unravels-in-wake-of-sandy-politicians-endorse-more-power-for-fema/

here.

(…)Mainstream media have echoed this uncritical endorsement, giving FEMA preemptive praise for its efforts in Sandy. ‘FEMA is the solution,’ and other bold claims are made to ensure the public does not break out of the illusion that FEMA is its loving savior.

But FEMA remains an agency capable only of a mismatched response, too slow to handle the most immediate needs to contain potential chaos, but always on pace for a gradual power grab after the fact, actually feeding off a greater disaster.

Once again, this bloated government agency can’t and won’t help the masses in a disaster. Yet politicians throughout the corporate-owned two party system are lining up to meet any request for FEMA funds, already approaching $12 billion plus, despite its track record of failure.(…)

(…)Congressman Ron Paul weighed in as a lonely voice willing to critique FEMA’s history of inefficiency and naked power grabs, while defending the centuries of local aid organized within the community in simply helping each other:(…)

Agenda 21 Opportunist, Peter Kasabach, executive director of the planning advocacy group New Jersey Future, says that subsidy, along with federal flood insurance that encourages rebuilding, is problematic.

Agenda 21 principles in action, (…)Peter Kasabach, executive director of the planning advocacy group New Jersey Future, says that subsidy, along with federal flood insurance that encourages rebuilding, is problematic….He suggested bans on building in some sensitive beach areas, or requirements that homes be built farther from the ocean.

The Surfrider Foundation’s Nelsen said he hopes that New Jersey communities at least consider rebuilding in different places, which he said has never been done on a large scale in a U.S. oceanfront.(…)http://www.my9tv.com/story/19974633/battered-nj-confronts-how-to-rebuild-its-shore    here.

It sounds so sensible, doesn’t it? But these groups statements need to be examined closely to see who benefits and who loses and what is changed and what happens to private property and the right to use property both private and public.

The UN Agenda 21 states in their accords that coastal communities must be depopulated and re-wilded back to nature. So where would this goal lead New Jerseyites in the aftermath of Sandy? If Peter Kasabach and planning advocacy group New Jersey Future,  and Chad Nelsen, the environmental director of the Surfrider Foundation, a national organization dedicated to preserving beaches and oceans and the Surfrider Foundation got their way?

Many property owners would be removed from their shores, prohibited from rebuilding, or refused federal flood insurance on new structures. Then only those who can afford to build without insurance would be able to occupy the coastal zones in the assurance that their structures would be replaced when storm ravaged.

Just sayin’ here, if there were less regulation and restrictions,  if old style beach structures were not outlawed the property owner could build at his own risk and not lose more than he was willing then arguably there would be a lot of different types of structures side by side, but there many examples of pre-planned communities that are both functional and beautiful. It is not out of the realm of pride of property and human creativity to co-exist without governmental edicts and regulations. Peer pressure is a great regulator and much more personal and effective at the neighbor level. We don’t need outside arbiters in most cases and when we do there judges and courts to settle disputes and infringements.

Theoretically just one goal of UN Agenda 21 is to re-wild the coasts of America.  In reality the immediate effects of new regulations for private coastal property, “Preserving beaches and oceans” as Surfrider Foundation claims to desire, would put New Jersey’s shore off limits to all but the moneyed class. There would be many property owners who would have to leave with whatever they could get in payouts and payoffs for their ocean front properties.

This happened to Mississippi communities when Katrina destroyed their homes and businesses, and now that coast is owned and occupied by casinos and big businesses, the poor and the middle class property owners were left with no option to rebuild on the waterfront.

Fortunately Sandy did not obliterate the New Jersey shore and I think property owners there will be in better position to fight against Agenda 21 property usurpations. I hope the little property owner does not get regulated off his coastal holdings through new regulations and restrictions. It would be wise to rebuild properly, but that should be their choice, and if they want to build a sand castle over and over again they have that right. Myself? I would go back to the understanding that beach houses aren’t meant to last forever, they are meant to be enjoyed until washed away, then the owner builds another in its place. I wouldn’t place things in a beach house that I couldn’t afford to loose. But I would forever cling to the right to occupy the sandy beach and walk the shore and see and hear the birds and smell the sea air and taste the salt water.

Preserve the beaches and oceans indeed not for themselves devoid of mankind but for the enjoyment of poor, middle, and all classes of people. UN Agenda 21 would expunge mankind from nature and povertize the 99% from earth’s resources and creation.

Only the 1% could envision that as being preservation of life. That would be a sad place to live.
