Economic sabotage: Needles in Australian fruits.

There is currently a sabotage of the food farming industry of Australia.
#needle in strawberries, #needles in apples, #needles in bananas, #Australia, #economic sabotage, #terrorism.

Economic sabotage: Needles in Australian fruits.

1. Needles in fruits.

The saboteurs inserted sewing needles into the fruits destined for wholesome consumption.

First it was discovered that some strawberries sold in punnets in Woolworth and Coles supermarkets in New South Wales and Victoria have sewing needles inserted in them. The affected batches are traced to a farm in Queensland near to Brisbane.

While the case is still unsolved there are many more similar cases which are suspected to be “copy cats”. Now there are cases of needles found in apples and bananas.

2. Terrorism ?

The Prime Minister of Australia compared the action of those involved to terrorism.[5]

The event cannot kill many people and cannot instill fear so it does not qualify as acts of terrorism. Nevertherless it is clearly an economic sabotage.

This is obvious as observed by a strawberry farmer:
” But he felt for those who were supplying the big stores, and were now being forced to dump stock… I went to the markets and the price went from say $1.50, $2 down to 50 cents, he said. ” [6]

3. Following the money.

In the current event, the losers are the strawberry (and possibly apple and banana) Farmers, Distributors and Supermarkets and indirectly the national revenue. Seasonal Tourist Fruit-pickers from Western Countries may also face tougher employment requirements.

The benefitors are PROSPECTIVE BUYERS OF Australian FARMS, Suppliers for exporters of the fruits involved, Importers of competing canned fruits. Foreign owners of fruit farms in Australia may use the sabotage as an excuse to apply for their status of PROHIBITED, FOREIGN OWNED AUTONOMOUS FARMS.

So the readers can now guess how powerful may the organizer be behind this national scale sabotage.

4. What is expected from the Government ?

The Australian government should try its best to catch the organizer of this economic sabotage.

Strawberry Farmers should be compensated for their loss of sale by the Federal government as the sabotage may be carried out by a poweeful force against individual Australian farmers.

Government should strengthen the laws on ownership of Australian farms [8, 9, 10] to ensure that foreign sabotage brings no benefit to foreign saboteurs. Domestic saboteurs will get caught eventually.

Government should guide people on methods of consuming those fruits without risking harms from the current sabotage by needles.

5. What can consumers do ?

Consumers should help Australian farmers by consuming those fruits with safer processes. They may have to resort to

a/- Slicing strawberries into thin slices before serving.

b/- Slicing apples into small cubes before serving.

c/- Slicing bananas into thin slices before serving.

d/- Scanning fruits with sensitive metal detectors (Preferably installed by supermarkets at their fruit stalls for use by customers.). Currently metal detectors are only installed at wholesalers.

6. Conclusion.

It may sound far fetched but it may be possible that the sabotage may be organized by some powerful (and possibly foreign) force desiring to weaken Australia and its strategic farmers.

Paying immigrants to go back home makes sense.

Paying immigrants to go back home makes sense.

(Blog No. … ).

#pay to go, #rejected asylum seeker, #non-integrating immigrant, #cost

Paying immigrants to go back home makes sense.

This blog suggest that it both looks good and makes economic sense to pay non-integrating immigrants to go back to their homelands.

Germany and many EU countries gave the wrong signals leading to many people leaving their homelands in Africa and Middle East to go there for easier lives. This whole thing has turned upside down the lives of many, native people and immigrants, and it is time for the leadership of EU to admit the mistakes.

To partially undo the damage caused by the mistakes of many EU countries, it may be cheapest for them to pay the immigrants to go back to their homelands.

1. Germany had paid guest workers to go home previously.

“Until very recently, Germany was not perceived as a country of immigration (“kein Einwanderungsland”) by both the majority of its political leaders and the majority of its population. When the country’s political leaders realized that many of the persons from certain countries living in Germany were jobless, some calculations were done and according to those calculations, paying unemployed foreigners for leaving the country was cheaper in the long run than paying unemployment benefits. A “Gesetz zur Förderung der Rückkehrbereitsschaft” (“law to advance the willingness to return home”) was passed. The government started paying jobless people from a number of countries, such as Turks, Moroccans and Tunisians, a so-called Rückkehrprämie (“repatriation grant”) or Rückkehrhilfe (“repatriation help”) if they returned home. A person returning home received 10,500 Deutsche Mark and an additional 1,500 Deutsche Mark for his spouse and also 1,500 Deutsche Mark for each of his children if they returned to the country of his origin.

The agreement with Turkey ended in 1973 but few workers returned because there were few good jobs in Turkey. Instead they brought in wives and family members and settled in ethnic enclaves.

In 2013 it was revealed that ex-chancellor Helmut Kohl had plans to halve the Turkish population of Germany in the 1980s.

By 2010 there were about 4 million people of Turkish descent in Germany. The generation born in Germany attended German schools, but some had a poor command of either German or Turkish, and thus had either low-skilled jobs or were unemployed. Most are Muslims and are presently reluctant to become German citizens.” [1]

2. It costs more to keep non-integrating immigrants.

“the overall debt in Germany stands at €6.2 trillion, equivalent to more than £5trillion.

…But Mr Raffelhüschen claims the tables could soon turn as Germany begins to take into account the cost of the refugee wave of 2015.

He states the long term costs of the original crisis totals around €878 billion, which threatens to soar up to €1.5trilllion depending on how well the “second generation” fits in with life in Germany.” [2]

“The costs of the wave of asylum seekers arriving in Sweden due to the refugee crisis will be much greater than previously expected, forcing the government to earmark more money in the coming years…Sweden’s Finance Minister Magdalena Andersson on Wednesday (13 April) presented the centre-left government’s 2016 spring budget, which revealed that the Scandinavian country expects costs related to migration, such as providing accommodation and offering job training, will be close to 56 billion Swedish crowns (€6.1 billion) per year until 2020….The government had previously forecast 15 billion Swedish crowns (€1.6 billion) annually.” [3]

The cost is often shared between central government and regional governments. [4]

3. It does not look good and it costs more to forcibly return immigrants.

The main cause of the problem is due to the “offer” by Germany to accept all immigrants who can come and now many of those immigrants are actually stuck in sticky situations.

“An EUobserver probe of some 100 joint return flights coordinated by the EU’s border agency, Frontex, has revealed some startling facts… The researched cases date from the start of 2015 to October 2016, with the numbers indicating huge costs for returning the thousands of migrants residing in European countries… It has been calculated that, on average, the agency has spent around €5,800 for every individual deported back to their country of origin. Over 4,700 have left under the scheme”. [5]

4. It makes sense to offer money to immigrants to go home.

This is not the first time Germany has asked guest workers come to build the country but had no plan for them to become part of the country. [6,7]

” … for many years Germans assumed the “guest workers” would return home one day. The country’s refusal to face up to the reality and the lack of a proper immigration policy led to today’s integration problems. “ [8]

” The country… now wants to give rejected asylum-seekers a one-time payment of $3,570 to go home. “ [9]

“Germany is willing to pay Muslim invaders who failed to receive asylum €3,000 if they leave the country and return home to their countries of origin by March 2018. “ [10]

“Germany learns how to send back migrants: Pay them” [11]

Germany will spend €150 million over three years to encourage migrants to return to their countries of origin, Development Minister Gerd Müller told local media ” [12]

5. Similar policies apply all over EU

Denmark to pay immigrants £12,000 to go home if they ‘can’t or won’t’ assimilate” [13]

Refugee seekers are being offered thousands of dollars plus free flights back home if they voluntary leave the country….A family with two children is eligible for $9,300 plus free flights home, around 900 refugees have already accepted Norway’s offer. ” [14]

Paris will provide each family with a nest egg of €6,000 ($8,000) for when they go back to their country of origin. A similar scheme, which was introduced in 2005 and 2006, was taken up by around 3,000 families. ” [15]

6. Conclusion

The leaders of EU countries should now admit their mistakes and speedily offer cash as compensation for misinformed immigrants to go home.

#find North, #finding North, #direction, #by stars, #Altair, #Fomalhaut, #September, #unclear sky,

Finding North from unclear sky around September.

Around September there are some bright stars shining the whole night. They include Deneb close to the Celestial North pole and Fomalhaut in the Southern sky. These stars can be used to locate the Celestial poles in the sky and subsequently the terrestrial principal directions.

1. Celestial poles and terrestrial directions.

Sun on Celestial Sphere

Figure: The Sun, the Moon and the stars are attached to a Celestial sphere which encloses the Earth like a giant rotating cage.

To an Earth bound observer, the Earth appears to be enclosed by a large rotating spherical shell called the Celestial Sphere with all stars attached to it. This shell rotates around the Earth nearly one revolution every 24 hous. This rotation leaves unmoved only 2 points on the shell. They are called the Northern and Southern Celestial poles of the Celestial Sphere.

If an observer can locate one Celestial pole then the projection to the ground of the line from him to the pole will be along his terrestrial North South direction.

2. Locating the Northern Celestial Pole in Northern hemisphere.

Figure: Polar Inversion map for the Northern Celestial hemisphere. The map should be read with its September marking on its rim pointing towards the ground as illustrated here.
An observer has to align the polar map with marking for September on the rim (at 6 o’clock position) pointing downward. An observer in Northern latitude above 30 degrees will see the rotation of bright stars Vega, Deneb [1], Cassiopeia constellation, bright star Capella then Big Dipper constellations in that order.

Cassiopeia goes highest around 01am.

The bisector of the M shaped Cassiopeia goes through the Northern Celestial pole. The Northern Celestial pole is almost 30 degree below Cassiopeia.

3. Locating the Southern Celestial pole in Southern hemisphere.

Figure: Polar Inversion map for the Northern Celestial hemisphere. The map should be read with its September marking on its rim pointing towards the ground as illustrated here.

An observer has to align the polar map with marking for September on the rim pointing downward as illustrated here. An observer in Southern hemisphere or on the tropical zone would see Achernar [1] rising highest around 2am. Southern Celestial pole is about 30 degree below Achernar.

4. Locating the Celestial poles from tropical stars.

A observer in the tropic should already know the two brightest stars Scorpius Antares (at the heart) and Scorpius Shaula (at the stinger end) of the Scorpius [1]. The straight line from Antares to Shaula goes through the bright star Fomalhaut which is of 60 degree distances from both Scorpius Shaula and Altair [1] which is a star of July and is close to the Celestial equator.

Figure 2: The Mercator map of the sky for inhabitants of Tropical Zone. North direction is on its top. 24hr of R.A. is near the center and R.A. increases towards the left (East) of the map. The map is to be read South side up in the Southern hemisphere.

Figure: Fomalhaut and its nearby stars.

The bisector of the angle Shaula, Altair, Fomalhaut points to the Southern Celestial pole.

Southern Celestial pole is is of 90 degree distance from Altair and of equal 60 degree from both Scorpius Shaula and Fomalhaut.

5. Visibility of the stars.

Scorpius Altairs and Scorpius Shaula are stars of June that set close to midnight when viewed from tropical zone. Altair is a star of July that sets close to 02 am. Fomalhaut is visible for nearly the whole night in September.

Real life lessons on national economics.

Real life lessons on national economics.

by tonytran2015 (Melbourne, Australia).

Click here for a full, up to date ORIGINAL ARTICLE and to help fighting the stealing of readers’ traffic.

(Blog No. … ).

The current time is quite interesting as it allows the testing of many economic theories. After that, some theories will gain credential while others may get forgotten.

#inflation, #economy, #Venezuela, #Argentina, #Turkey, #dollar,#currency #yuan, #gold based, #oil based

Real life lessons on national economics.

1. Venezuela and its wealth from oil.

Venezuela was a wealthy country living from its sale of oil. The 1998 Venezuelan government by Hugo Chavez then played with the game of commanding the economy and sent its economy crashing and then into hyperinflation.[1]

“Chavez used the abundant income stream to go on a spending spree as he instituted a large number of entitlement programs using the oil revenues. A strike in 2003 interrupted Chavez’s plans and caused the GDP to crash by 27 percent in just four months. Chavez began nationalizing industries and instituting price controls, which was the beginning on Venezuela’s inflationary spiral as Venezuelans developed a reliance on their government for products and services.” [2]

Once hyperinflation has set in, people would avoid using the rapidly depreciating fiat money, and bartering is the only mean for survival.[3, 4]

“If somebody has lots of one thing and too little of another, an arrangement can be made. I’ve exchanged corn meal for rice with friends from high school, eggs for cooking oil with my sister-in-law. Street vendors barter, too, taking, say, a kilo of sugar as payment for one of flour. There are Facebook pages and chat-room groups devoted to the swap-ability of everything from toothpaste to baby formula.” [5]

This should be a lesson to leftists everywhere [6] that even a once rich economy of Venezuela cannot endure the incessant waste of scare resources to FEEL GOOD on everything politicians can dream of.

2. Argentina with its policy of excessive protection for domestic industries.

In its pursue of industrial self-sufficiency the government had given excessive protection to domestic industries turning them into non-competitive. This caused a shortfall in the productivity and tax contribution. Subsequently the government had to rely on debt or inflation or both. These are the root cause of its current inflation:

” Successive governments from the 1930s to the 1970s pursued a strategy of import substitution to achieve industrial self-sufficiency, ”
“The era of import substitution ended in 1976, but at the same time growing government spending, large wage increases and inefficient production created a chronic inflation that rose through the 1980s… also contributed to the huge foreign debt by the late 1980s, which became equivalent to three-fourths of the GNP” [7]

Import substitution and industrial self-sufficiency are quite respectable aims for its economic policy. Argentinian economy could have benefited from them even if locally produced substitutions carried higher prices than available imports. However this approach always carry with it the danger of over-pampering domestic industries. The people in charge of domestic industries may decide to take a free ride to enrich themselves by supplying the domestic industries with obsolete or substandard production methods (for kick backs) rather than with best methods for the nation. [8, 9, 10]

When the cronies are in control, they borrow like mad to build everything so that they can get a cut (kick back) on every project. After that the country will be left with mountain of debts and prestigious but substandard or even useless projects [11, 15]. Cronyism is the cause for the backwardness of socialist countries.

“But just after Argentina settled with the “holdouts” in 2016 on defaulted dollar-bonds dating from its last default, it sold new foreign-currency bonds, in all kinds of issuances, including in June last year $2.75 billion of 100-year bonds at a yield of 7.9% and in January this year $9 billion of bonds, composed of five-year bonds at a yield of 4.625%, 10-year bonds at a yield of 6%, and 30-year bonds at a yield of 7%.”[16]

“ET: This shows that the government’s policy is an abject failure: with a peso that devalued fast; with the interest rate set at a high 40% by the Argentine Republic’s Central Bank; with the $ 8 billion reduction in international reserves that keep declining. And with a debt service that has increased by 100% compared to 2017. Faced with a balance sheet of such a nature, undoubtedly it is a total failure. Macri claimed that a high growth level and a viable debt would be ensured by paying the debt – between end-2015 and early-2016 – and by compensating the vulture funds, in keeping with Judge Thomas Griesa’s verdict. He knelt before the vulture funds (see: [17]). But the facts confirm that this plan did not work. Debt rose at a whirling pace and it’s startling to see how fast it snowballed. As a result, it became impossible to convince the creditors that Argentina could repay its debt in the future.” [18]

“Argentina’s currency is in free fall… The slump threatens to spread havoc through the $640 billion economy, rupturing supply chains for businesses and straining the finances of households.” [19]

Australia and Argentina were economically very similar prior to 1970. They then followed different paths from 1980: Senator Button of Keating’s government dismantled the over-protection for the car industry in Australia. That brought forward a wave of modernization. Currently Australia is in much better shape than Argentina [20, 21].

3. Turkish lira versus the US dollar.

Monetary policy is typically implemented by a central bank, while fiscal policy decisions are set by the national government. However, both monetary and fiscal policy may be used to influence the performance of the economy in the short run.

” It helps quantify the effects of the recent economic chaos in Turkey. Turkey’s economic future remains uncertain, but the reality is that their currency has devalued as a result of large fiscal deficits and heavy borrowing used to make up the revenue shortfall. Inflation is not the cause of the problem; it is a symptom. The cause is the dramatic increase in the supply of lira designed to solve the poor fiscal condition.”[22]

Turkey is an interesting case. The country is a bridge between Western countries and Middle East countries and is not far from Russia. That country relied on its membership in NATO to shoot down a stray Russian fighter jet ! It then mended its bad relation with Russia and went on to antagonize USA with its threat of re-polarizing its foreign policy.

Although Russia now allows Russians to have holidays in Turkey and China is courting it with the OBOR plan (“One Belt One Road” or rather “Once Borrowed Only Regret”? [23]), Turkey’s currency lira is now in trouble partially due to US tariffs imposed on Turkey’s goods.

4. US dollars are being pushed back into their national territory by China, Russia and the Silk Road Alliance.

US dollars are only fiat money [24] after Nixon’s removal of their ex-changeability for gold. They are only useful to people who have to pay tax to and pay for service from the American government. They are absolutely useless to foreigners who don’t have to pay tax to or pay for service from the American government. Having US dollars as a medium for international trade is a privilege to USA: There are more holders of that currency, the pool of dollars in circulation is therefore vast. That allows American government to quietly “tax” all its currency holders, domestic and international, through inflation [25].

American exploitation of this privilege position [26] with its imposition of banking sanctions against many countries has led to the (irreversible ?) push for using gold or oil as exchange medium in international trade [27, 28, 29, 30].

5. Conclusions

This is an interesting time for studying economics. Most theories can be tested and sorted out during this short time. Blind belief in fiat currency is now questioned everywhere.

The leaders of nations have to learn now that there is always a reaction to every of their actions.

The Frog and the Scorpion

via The Frog and the Scorpion

(reblogged from

https://vikinglifeblog.wordpress.com/2016/05/05/the-frog-and-the-scorpion/ )

Illustration image from:

https://iykeokoroblog.files.wordpress.com/2014/06/frog.jpg?w=255&h=196

One day, a scorpion looked around at the mountain where he lived and decided that he wanted a change. So he set out on a journey through the forests and hills. He climbed over rocks and under vines and kept going until he reached a river.

The river was wide and swift, and the scorpion stopped to reconsider the situation.

He decided to ask the frog for help getting across the stream.

“Hellooo Mr. Frog!” called the scorpion across the water, “Would you be so kind as to give me a ride on your back across the river?”

“Well now, Mr. Scorpion! How do I know that if I try to help you, you wont try to kill me?” asked the frog hesitantly.

Halfway across the river, the frog suddenly felt a sharp sting in his back and, out of the corner of his eye, saw the scorpion remove his stinger from the frog’s back.

“You fool!” croaked the frog, “Now we shall both die! Why on earth did you do that?”

The scorpion shrugged, and did a little jig on the drownings frog’s back.

“I could not help myself. It is my nature.”

Then they both sank into the muddy waters of the swiftly flowing river.

Self destruction – “Its my Nature”, said the Scorpion…

Never compromise your own survival to be helpful to strangers or acquaintance. The world is quite treacherous.

Comparative risks of foreign influence on different US political leaders.

Comparative risks of foreign influence on different US political leaders.

by tonytran2015 (Melbourne, Australia).

Click here for a full, up to date ORIGINAL ARTICLE and to help fighting the stealing of readers’ traffic.

(Blog No. … ).

Each nation has its leaders to set its policy and execute the policy. So each wants its leaders to be free from all influence by foreign nations.

Most nations have laws to prevent dual citizens from holding its government positions and also tries its best to prevent its leaders from being blackmailed with their hidden pasts and their closeness to people from adversarial nations. This is the basis for the intelligence agencies of each country to worry about its leaders.

However there is a strange application of this concept against the current non-establishment President of the USA.

#Steele dossier, #Russian collusion, #Clinton’s emails, #Clinton’s server, #FBI, #McCain POW, #McCain’s war records,

Comparative risks of foreign influence on different US political leaders.

1. America does not prevent people with dual citizenships holding Congress and Senate offices.

This is quite strange in view of the requirements in Australia, Russia and Israel on comparative position.

After the failure of Nixon’s administration to take away American citizenships from people with foreign citizenships [1, 2, 3, 4], US Congress should have strengthened the laws against dual citizenships. On the contrary, the system has since allowed people with dual citizenships to stand for elected offices.

The concept of “Dual Citizens holding high Elected Offices” is outrageous to Australians [5-10] and citizens of many other countries such as Russia [11-14], China [15], Israel [16] but is not for Americans [17, 18, 19].

Soon USA may have a President born in the USA but is also holding a foreign citizenship by birth or by the grant of citizenship from some foreign nation !

2. All President and lawmakers should be free from foreign influence and possibility of being blackmailed.

However only Donald Trump is being under multipronged investigation on himself, his private life, and on anyone having collaborated with him.

There are other cases which are more deserving of investigation.

FBI used the discredited story supplied by Mr. Steele to suspect that President Trump has been black mailed by Russia [T1-T2]. What is the worst case even if the story by Steele is true? A man is playing his uninhibited sex game that is not too strange for rich billionaires or Hollywood characters. The results are inconsequential.

On the other hand, the consequences of black mailing on other American political leadeŕs may throw them off their thrones and they would do anything to preserve their thrones.

3. Former Secretary of State and Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton with the Clinton Foundation and Haiti relief fund.

“There was good reason to bury this. For four years Hillary Clinton sent all the American secrets she had to China”.[C1]

There are more dangerous signs on this former Presidential Candidate [C1- C4].

4. The Late Senate Leader John McCain and his disputed records as a Prisoner of War.

His records have been disputed by other Prisoners of War and by his Vietnamese Prisoners Camp Guard.

The consequences of blackmailing is serious: No more hero, betrayal of fellow POW,

There are more dangerous signs on this Republican leader [M1- M7].

5. Former President Bill Clinton regarding Ms. Monica Lewinsky

The stories on this former President have mostly been revealed.

6. Conclusions

It does not look right with the FBI spending years looking for any flaw by President Trump while overlooking obvious dangerous signs of foreign influence on other influential political leaders.

It even looks farcical for FBI to look for any trace of foreign influence while American lawmakers overseeing it may be or are already half-foreign.

The deceivers in democracies: Beware of the propagandists.

The deceivers in democracies: Beware of the propagandists.

by tonytran2015 (Melbourne, Australia).

Click here for a full, up to date ORIGINAL ARTICLE and to help fighting the stealing of readers’ traffic.

(Blog No. 1xx).

The propagandists are people spreading their propaganda for their vested interest.

In our lives we always encouter them either as lowly conmen or as well disguised respectable debaters or laws makers. It is still possible to spot them if we know their method of work.

It is quite common now to see some propagandists disguised as journalists: They pose the questions but cut short any answer not supprting their agenda.

The best known man with his work on propaganda is Dr Joseph Goebbels with his quote “If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it, and you will even come to believe it yourself.” [2,3]

#politician, #agenda, #propaganda, #propagandist,

The deceivers in democracies: Beware of the propagandists.

1. The method of propagandists

They work following these steps, almost always in this given order.

a/- Spreading stories about some real cases of injustice to catch empathy.

b/- Enlarge and exagerate the seriousness and the extent of the problems.

c/- Create a catchy phrase as their battle cry.

d/- Mobilize the mob with the catch cries.

e/- Demand restitution to the few cases of injustice using ambiguous laws in order to create the opposite kind of injustice.

f/- Labelling opponents to their movements with catch all, denigrating labels.

g//- Create obsfucatibg terms to hide their real argument from objective scrutiny.

h/- Once they attain the control of power, they pass laws punishing any opponents using ambiguous laws on such catch all labels.

2. Succese of their method in Stalin’s era.

a/- Spreading stories about some real cases of capitalist exploitation to catch empathy.

b/- Enlarge and exagerate the seriousness and the extent of the problems of capitalism.

c/- Create a catchy phrase “Everyone is supplied to his needs and works to his ability” (ignoring human greediness and selfishness that makes people claims more than they need and gives less than they should), “World without borders” (Ignoring that Communist countries do have border conflicts [4,5]), “Workers of the world unite” (Ignoring that thirst for power makes movement leaders betray their own colleagues, as in the case of Stalin versus Trostsky), “What do we want -We want communism” as their battle cry.

d/- Mobilize the mob with the catch cries.

e/- Demand restitution to the few cases of injustice using ambiguos laws in order to create the opposite kind of injustice: Establishing Soviet Unions with all its problems .

f/- Labelling opponents to their movements with catch all, denigrating labels such as “Reactionary”, “Anti-revolutionary”.

g//- Create obsfucatibg terms to hide their real argument from objective scrutiny: Bourgeoisie, proletariat, World without borders, Dollars Imperialism.

h/- Once they attain the control of power, they pass laws against any opponents with such labels: Severe punishments have been handed out to reactionaries. Even Trotsky [4] got assasinated for being in Stalin’s way.

3. Succeses of their method in similar movements.

Green movement is applying the method with catch cry “Save the Planet”. (They would be applauded if their Paris Agreements can force significant reduction in pollution AT THEIR SOURCES, not with the very broad brush against almost anything.), They call their opponents Climate Change Deniers” [G2] and penalizing their opponents with ineffective but disruptive AMBIGUOUS “Carbon taxes” [G1, G2, G3] and “pollution taxes”.

Black Rights Activists in South Africa is also applying the method with catch cry “Anti-aparthy” and is applying “dispossession” against White descendant farmers [B1, B3].

LGBT is also applying the method with catch cry “equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people” and their yearly Mardi Gras parades. LGBT members insist on going to toilets for the physiologically opposite sex (to prevent sexual assault) and calling any objector “discriminator against LGBT”.

The designers of Mass Imigration, Popularion Replacement label their objectors as Racists, Xenophobes, Cultural Imperialists, “ANTI-(fill your own)”.

4. Conclusions.

We should all have heightened alertness against all people with such pattern of activities.

We would rather be too cautious than to become oppressed by them.

Sore throat infection from cold drinks with ice in Vietnam.

Sore throat infection from cold drinks with ice in Vietnam.

by tonytran2015 (Melbourne, Australia).

Click here for a full, up to date ORIGINAL ARTICLE and to help fighting the stealing of readers’ traffic.

(Blog No. 1xx).

Visitors to Vietnam (most of them to Saigon) often caught Sore Throat infection. They would hear some claims by the mass that there are some outbreaks of throat infection by influenza virii. Actually there are no such outbreaks in influenza virii to cause such infection.

This is the story of my own search for the real reason for the claim that drinking cold drink with ice in Vietnam may cause a throat infection.

#throat infection, #cold drink with ice cubes, #unhygienic drink serving, #Vietnam

Sore throat infection from cold drinks with ice in Vietnam.

1. Having sore throat after having few drinks in Vietnam?

A tourist went out to have few glass of beers or cold drinks in the most expensive places in Vietnam and come back to his room with a sore throat infection. His friends tell him that everyone drinking cold drinks in Vietnam eventually gets an infection due to the cold drinks. Government Health Department has so many blunders that it has no more credibility to offer any recommendation. So the tourist may believe that his cold drinks may have caused his infection.

2. My search for the true cause of sore throat infection in Vietnam.

Ice makers in Vietnam are under some degree of control by the Vietnamese Health Department.

The beer and soft drink makers are also under some degree of control by the Vietnamese Health Department.

The drink glasses have been mostly cleaned and well washed.

So it was a puzzle to see why a tourist can catch a throat infection in an expensive reception or club.

3. Some investigative work is needed.

Paying attention on the way cold drinks are served in Vietnam brings out some UNSUAL activities: The waiters are always busy pulling out the ice cubes from guests’ glasses to replace them with bigger cubes: The partially dissolved cubes are pulled out of each glass by a pair of tongues. They are then placed in an ice bucket that carries all ice cubes, new and partially dissolved. The waiters then choose from those cubes one of the right size for dropping into the guest’s glass to make its liquid rise to the brim. The waiters want to make an image that the glasses of all guests are always full.

You should know by now why people consuming cold drinks with ice cubes have sore throat infection.

4 The most probable cause of throat infection for tourists to Vietnam

a/- Suppose that a guest has a throat infection.
b/- The pair of tongues that dip into his drink may carry some virus.
c/- His ice cubes may carry some virus.
d/- The ice bucket now spreads thw virus to all cubes.
e/- The pair of tongues and the ice cubes from the bucket carries virus to the guest being served.
f/- Every guest now equitably shared some virus.

5. Personal actions to avoid such throat infection.

a/- Whenever I needed a drink, I avoided their glasses, pair of tongues for ice and ice cubes by asking for a fridge cooled, sealed, pull-top can of drink. I would then personally wash its top in the toilet then bring it back to the table and open it, drinking the content directly from its opened top with a drink straw. I would then ask the waiters to give me privacy and keep away from me and my can of drink !

b/- If ice cubes are needed insist on obtaining them yourself directly from a sealed bag from a well known ice manufacturer and NOT PARTIALLY DISSOLVED cubes as the latter may come out of someone else’ glass. It is paradoxic that STREET VENDORS seem to ADHERE MORE to this rule for hygiene than expensive clubs and reception centers full of (wrongly trained) busy looking waiters.

c/- Observe strictly the rules of NOT SHARING EATING AND DRINKING CUTTLERY. This rule is observed rigorously in Western Countries and in Former (pre 1975) South Vietnam but it is NOT observed by people from former North Vietnam.

d/- The non-observance of this rule of NOT SHARING EATING AND DRINKING CUTTLERY now spreads to the majority of alcoholic drinkers in Vietnam. DO NOT share their glasses and avoid drinking with them.

The magnetic navigational compasses may have been first used by Indian people and may not have been first invented by Chinese people as often claimed.

#compass, #navigation, #lodestone, #Chinese compass, #Olmec magnetic, #Indian, #yantra, #matsya yantra, #maccha yantra,

Indian mariners had first use of magnetic navigational compasses.

1. Claims that China invented the compasses.

Wikipedia said that

“The first compasses were made of lodestone, a naturally magnetized ore of iron, in Han dynasty China between 300 and 200 BC.”[1]

The entry on Han Dynasty said that

“The Han dynasty (/hɑːn/; Chinese: 漢朝; pinyin: Hàn cháo) was the second imperial dynasty of China (206 BC–220 AD).” [2]

So the compasses are used in China after 206 BC, but it was initially only for geomancy.

“The magnetic compass was not, at first, used for navigation, but for geomancy and fortune-telling by the Chinese. The earliest Chinese magnetic compasses were possibly used to order and harmonize buildings in accordance with the geomantic principles of feng shui.” [1]

“The compass was later used for navigation by the Song Dynasty”[1]. (Song Dynasty: Chinese: 宋朝; pinyin: Sòng cháo; 960–1279)

So the written records on the use of compasses for navigation in China are made after year 960 CE.

Note that there were South-pointing chariots used in ancient China before year 235 CE [2b, 2c, 2d] but their operation was not based on magnetism. Their operation relied on the differential between the numbers of rotations of the left and right wheels (of same size) of each chariot to give its total yawing angle since departure.

Those chariots may have even been “first constructed by the Duke of Zhou (beginning of the 1st millennium BC) as a means of conducting homewards certain envoys who had arrived from a great distance beyond the frontiers.” [2b].

2. Appropriate places to look for records.

Many people look for easily read records. China certainly has many records which have been translated into English and are easily understood by readers in the World.

However, China is a land conquering empire, requiring little use of compasses while India is a sea faring trading empire which may benefit a lot from compasses. The logical place to look for records of first use of navigational compasses should therefore be India, an outreaching seafaring trading empire (as necessity is the mother of inventions). Indian influence is obvious over the vast area of Indian Ocean, Polynesian nations and (mostly South) Pacific Ocean [2e].

Any discovery of earlier use of magnetic navigational compass predating Chinese use should not surprise/disappoint investigators as the people of the trading Olmec nation (on the side of the Gulf of Mexico) has even used lodestones, hematite, magnetite since 1500 BC, one thousand year before any record of Chinese first use of lodestones [3], [4].

It is to be noted that China is on the East of India while Arab countries, Spain, Olmec are spread to its West.

3. Many evidences pointing to ancient use of compasses by Indian people .

The literature of the out reaching, sea faring nation India have many evidence to support its first use of the magnetic navigation compass.

“The compass was first used in India, around 1800 BC, for Navigational purposes and was known as “Matsya yantra” (which roughly translates to fish machine) because of the placement of a metallic fish in a cup of oil.” [5]

However, no evidence have been given in [5] to support the claim of “around 1800 BC”.

Reference [6] stated that
“In the Tamil nautical books, the use of compass is mentioned in the fourth century BC”,

4. Evidence on knowledge of magnetic attraction by Indian people since 500BC.

K. V. Ramakrishna Rao [7] pointed out that:

In Vedas, there is reference to “ayas” implying Iron and “Akarshan” attaction, thus, pointing to Iron-magnet relationship.[7]

Kanada (c.550 BCE) mentions about a needle that moves towards a magnet as –

“Manigamanam sucyabhi sarpanam drastakaranam” (Kanadasutra.V.I.15). In the commentary called the Upaskara, the passage has been clearly explained to signify that the needle goes towards the magnet.[7]. (Wikipedia [8] stated that Kanada was estimated to live between 6th and 2nd century BC.)

Kalidasa (c.500 BCE) records: “Siva’s mind has been fixed steadily because of penance. And therefore, now try to distract his attention just like an iron piece is attracted or drawn towards a magnet (ayaskantena lohavat akarshtum)” (Kumarasambavam.II.59).“[7]

The date of 500 BCE assigned for Kalidasa quoted by [7] may be in error. Wikipedia [9] stated that Kalidasa’s works cannot be dated with precision, but they were most likely authored within the 4th-5th century CE. In any event, it is not important, only the date of 550BCE assigned to Kanada is pivotal to the thesis of this article.

5. Evidence on compass use by Indian people since 500CE.

Milindapanho (VII.2.16) composed during 4th-5th centuries CE, mentions about an instrument used by the pilot of a ship for steering the ship.

“And again, O King, as the pilot put a seal on the steering apparatus, lest any one should touch it”.
“[7]

Rhys Davis translates the term as “steering apparatus” and it Sanskrit it is “yantra”, a mechanical devise, just like “matsya yantra” working on mechanical and accompanied with other principles.[7]

Mookerji points out a compass on one of the ships in which Hindus of the early Christian era sailed out to colonize Java and other islands in the Indian ocean. The Hindu compass was an iron fish (called in Sanskrit matsya-yantra or fish machine). It floated in a vessel of oil and point to the north (History of Indian Shipping, London, 1912) [7].

The following is what Mr. J.L. Reid, who was a member of the Institute of Naval Architects and Shipbuilders in England, has said in the Bombay Gazetteer, vol. xiii., Part ii., Appendix A.

“The early Hindu astrologers are said to have used the magnet, in fixing the North and East, in laying foundations, and other religious ceremonies. The Hindu compass was an iron fish that floated in a vessel of oil and pointed to the North. The fact of this older Hindu compass seems placed beyond doubt by the Sanskrit word Maccha Yantra, or fish machine, which Molesworth gives as a name for the mariner’s compass”. [10]

6. Conclusions

The thesis of this article is Indian mariners have already used magnetic navigation compass at least since 500 CE while Chinese had recorded usage of them only after 900 CE, a long four hundred years later.

It appears that the out reaching Indian seafarers had the first use of magnetic navigational compasses. Since necessity is the mother of inventions, it is natural to expect this as India had been an ancient seafaring trading nation.

The Parasites of Western Economy, Part 10: Greedy politicians overpaid with our tax money.

The Parasites of Western Economy, Part 10: Greedy politicians overpaid with our tax money.

by tonytran2015 (Melbourne, Australia).

Click here for a full, up to date ORIGINAL ARTICLE and to help fighting the stealing of readers’ traffic.

(Blog No. 1xx).

A nation is built up by people with the same purpose, espousing same values in life. They stake a territory, protect its border, set up rules to operate the nation to their desired aims. It has happened many times in the past, some strong group of people may organize themselves to capture the ruling positions of the nation through violence or through terrorizing the population.

To avoid recurrence of violence and terror accompanying each regime change, most Western, truely democratic, nations now have decided to have their sets of rules above any rulers and call those rules the Constitution of the Nation.

The rulers of each nation are required to uphold its Constitution to every of its letters. The Constitution also specifies who are the citizens of the nation and how the rulers are elected by the citizens of the nation. Only such elected rulers are called constitutionally legitimate representatives and only them can form and operate the government.

#parasite, #government, #politician, #entitlement, #pension, #abuse, #elected office, #tax money,

The Parasites of Western Economy, Part 10: Greedy politicians overpaid with our tax money.

1. Protectors of Constitutions turning into abusers.

Few countries anticipated that it is their own elected representatives that would become corrupt and manipulate the system to entrench themselves with privileges and benefits not envisaged by the authors of their Constitutions.

Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Lord Acton

Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely, and I found that out when I was Attorney General in Massachusetts.
Edward Brooke

It is said that power corrupts, but actually it’s more true that power attracts the corruptible. The sane are usually attracted by other things than power.
David Brin

2. Representatives of each nation abuse the trust of their electors and exploit every loopholes in their respective national constitution to entrench their own priviledge.

Most national constitutions do not specify the setting for entitlements of elected representatives or the methods to prevent them getting rich at the expense their nations.

So the representatives increase their own salaries, eligibility, trade favours to their future donors/employers and can even set up their (Clintons styled) Foundations to pressure constituents and those to be affected by their decisions to donate to their foundations !

3. Shameless calls for acceptance of dual citizenship for parliamentarians.

Some Politicians even make shameless proposal for acceptance of Dual Citizenship for Parliament Representative. The advocates may have thought that citizens were fools [1-9].

Australia bans it, Israel bans it, Russia bans it, these economically small countries are doing well. On the other hand, after the failure by Nixon’s administration in US courts to ban dual citizenship in USA [10., 14], that once great country is now heading for trouble. Dannish people are not impressed with USA [15].

4. Travel for serving politicians.

Politicians really enjoy having their travel paid by tax payers Some have his dogs driven around by government cars [15, 16]. Some enjoys helicopter rides [17-22]. Any Australian senator is allowed to net $1040 a week from the excess allowance, supplementing his/her base salary of $199,040, The Daily Telegraph reported [21b].

5. Hush money for sexual misconducts by politicians.

Politicians can even have funds for hush money [23-26]!

6. Lifetime travel for retired Australian politicians axed by Prime Minister Turnbull.

Current Australian Prime Minister Malcome Turnbull is now much hated by Australian politicians for axing their Lifetime Gold Pass for travel. Turnbull is thus a PM who wants to lead by examples. Australians should salute him [27-29].

7. Politicians with questionable campaign money.

Australian MP Dastyari does not think that his campaign fund is contributed by a foreigner [30-32]! Victorian (Australia) State Premier D. Andrew does not think that there is a problem of MP on his side campaigned with tax money [33-35]!

8. Former Prime Ministers using “Former PM” priviledge while working for foreign governments/companies.

There is nothing wrong with a former PM of a country who subsequently wants to work for another country but he should relinquish all priviledge granted to a former PM to save the dignity of the firat country. It looks terrible for the first country if its former PM lined up and queue for favour from any other country [36-46].

9. Huge pensions for politicians

UK politicians extort huge pensions on tax payers [47]. Australian politicians require ordinary male working people to work until they get 70 years old before they get entitled to their pension payments. On the other hand, Australian politicians only need to serve 2 elected terms to be entitled for their life pension after turning 55 after finishing the second elected term [48].

10. The ultimate safeguard for American system.

American system has placed an ultimate safeguard against abuse by rulers in its Second Amendment to its Constitution. It is to be used as a guarantee for the ultimate revolt against oppressive government:

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. “

This is to prevent the ruling government plus congress of the day from walking into the lounge rooms of Americans and impose a tea tax. However, even this 2nd Amendment is now under constant attack by the elected democratic representatives in their quest for absolute powers and own entrenchment.

11. Conclusions.

Every citizen has to be vigilant and be active in politics. Only by doing so he can avoid being a tax donkey provider for those unhelpful politicians who turn tax money into honey pots for their greedy ones.

It is also now a question whether people with no net contribution to the economy should be allowed to stand for elected office?
