Who put the erroneous (phony) edgar report up. on the headline news at 1:04-pm today. Showing the year end results for 2012. Can anyone post a phony headline making a company look bad.?
Thanks. What do you think of delivering H2 to homes via 1/4" (i.d.) line over telephone poles.?
perhaps someone is looking at potential value. .... I'm looking at a 7-Kg hydrogen tank. ..... 1-Kg can turn a 43-KW EV engine for 40-miles. ..... or . .... power your house during an outage. and provide heat also. Or power 43, 1,000 Watt microwave-ovens, for an hour. ..... Possible applications are only hampered by imagination.
don't get the connection between tsla & bldp in today's baron article. but volume of 27-m shares traded so far today must mean somethings up.
Oligarchs in Russia own 80% of the nations wealth. Oligarchs in Ukraine own 80% of the nations wealth. Oligarchs here own 80% of the nations wealth. ///// What has happened in Ukraine is the people have been left out in all the dealings regarding the nations wealth. Tymoshenko just proved that the oligarch she represented was not as strong as the one that put in Yanukovich. And it seems in the end, both of them were no match for ??? the people.???. ///// Some say this resembles the prelude to WW-1. When the oligarchs fought among themselves for power and influence. It seems like our oligarchs are trying to set the tune. We will either dance on the side of the Cheneygarchs looking to cash in one more time on war. Or. We will dance to the tune of peace. Which can only be had by making a deal that satisfies all. ///// So how about an offer like this. ..... Give Crimea to the Russians. Make all deals and treaties between the 2-countries since 1980 null and void. Russia will never have to worry about Crimea. Ukraine will not be tied by terms made by oligarchs for the benefit of oligarchs.
Uhhhhh. You really should learn to pick up a good paper and read. Who do you think our soldiers will believe. You saying the president will cut their pay, or the president saying (yesterday) that he will increase military pay by 1%. ///// In case you forgot, we are still under the sequester budget passed by the republican house, which calls for dramatic cuts in defense spending. Or have you forgotten that the house holds the nations purse strings. ///// In case you're wondering what's going on today, just look at what all republican administrations have done after wars. (the peace dividend). Nixon started the war in ElSalvador in 1971 as he wound down Vietnam. We were spending more per-capita in ElSalvador than Vietnam as a way to placate the military industrial complex. Reagan cut troop strenght while tossing the complex a $200-B bone trying to figure out how to shoot down a meterorite with a BB-gun. Military pay languished under Reagan as a way to toss money to the republicans favorite contractors. Until Clinton came along and said our men in uniform deserve better. and shifted the military budget toward the people again. Bush shifted the whole thing back to the industrial complex again. Drones. Super-sizing the military's carnivore program. (reading every e-mail sent). So what did we get for the $1.4-Trillion spent since the pat-act.? That costs up to $200-Billion a year to keep running. Nothing. And the best part, this tax-payer welfare payment is scheduled to run for a thousand-years. Everyone knows there is only X amount of money in he nation. The arguments now is who gets what. People or. .....
It all depends on one's imagination. I can imagine home backup power systems that also provide heat and humidifycation all in one package.
What.? Retiring at 88. He's not following the republican mantra of working till you drop.
Don't forget the burgeoning S,American economies. Honda will start building a Fit plant in Mexico for upscale middle class that is expanding. Perfect timing for euro products.
#2 coal has half (???) the energy of #1 and twice the pollutants. The 700-MW plant that opened along the N.coast runs through a lot of coal a day. I'm wondering what they do do with all that coal ash. And where it goes after the years roll by. It's not gonna be like a 30-MW ash heap. I imagine a complete kill off of the fishing industry in the N.Pacific someday.. that would affect the eating habits of a billion or more people. Hopefully someone is keeping an eye on that and not focused solely on what's happening in the air.
from a collection of old news articles. .... 10K people a year die from burning coal-cakes during the winter in Beijing. Usually the young. Many students go to school with rosy cheeks, a sign of carbon-monoxide poisoning (burning fossil fuel). The kids usually recuperate in class by falling asleep. China thinks it has taken care of the problem by forcing the closure of mines supplying the #2, #3 coal. These are low in energy and high in pollutants. They have also built new apartment with central heating to replace the individual (old) homes. Chin's #1 coal will peak by 2018. Soon they will start burning #2. While doing massive imports of #1. They still build 2-coal-plants a week. But they are getting big and usually based along the northern coast where most of the time the pollution is taken out to sea to the arctic and northern climes. Far from home. But sometimes the weather pattern changes and it hits home. Something must be done now for the future.
The fit is the perfect car for the emerging economies in S.America. Roomy and economical. Imported from union workers in Japan. Soon (?) to be made by union workers in Mexico you say. Maybe supplied with parts by union workers here. Back seats tilt back 2" like airline seats. Seems like Honda is betting S.American's will be spending more for a car to get more from a practical car made for 2nd world roads.
Perhaps this is the waning days of an empire. When the rulers are able to pass laws in their interest. 90% of the laws passed are for their benefit. 90% of congressmen don't know what they are voting for. 90% of the time. Half of congressional staff advise congress on how to vote. Usually these staffers are doing the bidding of the rulers . because they want to be in the courts of the ruling class. And this is a problem. A problem for democracy where laws are made, not for the benefit of all. Where laws are made for the 0.5% and the 4.5% tagalongs. ///// And it all depends on what you believe. How billions are spent every year to influence what you see and hear. And thus, what you think. Emperors rule by the divine word of god coming out of their mouths. The Pharisee's ruled by the divine interpretation of the scribes recorded commentaries about history. But in the end, they had inbred a a ruling class of ideas that benefitted them. And so it has been in many places. Even in democracies that threw off the yokes of king and popes. Where stopping people from voting is just another manisfestation of affluenza. Where common law doesn't have to be adhered to because they are above it. This dilema of the ruling elite has seen the demise of many empires. From hitler taking revenge on minorities for not supporting his war effort. To stalin who preached one thing for all but exempted he and his cronies. To what is happening in the middle-east today. It was sad to learn last year (TV) that 80% of rural America, and up to 50% of metropolitans thought that hitlers policies should be adopted to get America out of depresion. Those Bund broadcasts via the media worked. Everything was so depressed that people were willing to work for pennies on the dollar. Anything. The right blasted spending borrowed money on building dams out west where there were no people. Saying the $8-B in borrowing would take up to the next century to pay off.
Matriarchal societies like lions, elephants, etc, know that young males have to leave to prevent inbreeding. Cell function depends on the mothers genes. I guess that's why animals have migrated since day one. To prevent future problems. In the waning days of the House of Habsburg influence, cousins were sent to the far flung corners of the empires they once controlled. Arranged marriages from Austria to Spain. Monaco, Syria, Austria, Turkey, etc. As the once proud rulers tried to keep their fortunes from being diluted. ///// Marriage long ago was not the norm for common people. Marriages were once the domain of powerful rulers. And were copied by the less powerful clan heads to build alliances toward becoming powerful rulers. But I think as a way to prevent inbreeding. Until a custom was built as a way to make money off of it by those involved in keeping track of ancestry and the involved parties. And once a custom is started, those with the upper hand in the transaction keep it alive. But there are other customs too involved. Like taking as many wives as one can afford. and denying marriage to those not as wealthy. That seems to be the problem with certain areas of the world today. Old customs kept alive. ///// The great mongol empires (etc) did not decimate the populations they held sway over. They just collected the young man and sent them off to war. Leaving a void in a village of young women. What better opportunity to spread the winners genes. And prevent the innate desire to prevent inbreeding among all. ///// The inbreeding of ideas. Some people will look at a gem with a hundred face(ettes). And will narrow down to a single face so they can see their reflection. Even if they have to use a microsope. They will concentrate on one leaf rather than see the whole tree. Or even step back to see the whole forest. And I guess that accounts for some of the narrow views here that focus in only on what the rulers want people to see.
You seem to have forgotten the times that led up to the fall of GM. It was not the unions. It was management decisions. GM was the nations leader in auto production and wanted to compete with Toyota as the worlds leader. They even had a porom that led to smashing of Toyotas on TV. That's not building up. That's tearing down. They touted their world-wide parts program. And that was their downfall. Instead of relying on quality American parts they relied on cheap world-wide parts. And by the early 1990's, they started advertising, quality is job #1. Which they failed to carry through on. So that by the late 1990s they lost more to the competition. There's nothing worse than having to go back to the dealer 6-times in 2-months. And every time seeing all the new cars in front of you with disgruntled faces who are in the same boat. And it's all the little and big things that added up. I'll give you a list of problems if you want. Hopefully now they have more control over product. What they need now is a quality small car to build brand loyalty among 1st time buyers that will swear by the brand for the next 60-years. Even the poor know they have to spend extra now to save in the long run. They depend on resale value 5-10 years from now to help make the next purchase. Or to pass it on to family. People know a good brand by word of mouth. Not by excessive ads that show no one is buying their product. (another cost to a poorly run company). Whenever I'm interested in a car, i always ask the 5-10 year owner in the parking lot how he likes his car. When the answer comes back,.... I spent half the cost of the car repairing it, ..... I'm not interested anymore. It's not hard to figure which cars are made from quality American made parts. And which are assembled on the cheap from cheap parts from around the world from dissimilar metals that rust. Like the rusty nut on a bolt. Because some bean counter over ruled an engineer for share holder value.
Netanyahu somehow obtained a gold ring several hundred years old, with the Netanyahu on it. He gave it to right wing American columnist George Will as proof the Netanyahu's were in Palestine for hundreds of years. What he forgot to do was tell the conservatist columnist that his father had changed his name to Netanyahu somewhere in the 1930's when he first arrived.
There is a difference between Jesus and Christ. ///// Krystos (the light) is the message carried by all the messiahs. Up to John the Baptist and his protege Jesus. The messenger might die, but not the message. So that is the difference between john the Baptist, Jesus, etal. And the message=Light=Krystos=Christ.. ///// Christians believe the streets in heaven is paved with gold. Some Muslims believe heaven has virgins (or whatever) waiting for them. Why did these ancient writers have such divergent ideas of what heaven is.? Muhammed, like Jesus both denied they were the messiah who came to free their land from the Romans. By the time Muhammed came, Rome was already falling apart. So it was easy for his armies, armed with the liberation theory, to finally wrest control. But the problem with all authority (god or otherwise) is they grow to enjoy the wealth of people. King David would never have recognized what was being done in his name. The growing of an elite powerful class who made laws that benefitted themselves no matter the cost to the poor masses. And this is probably what brought about the likes of Jesus, etal. To say they are not the "son of god", but the "son of man". They derive their power not from god. But from man. The high priests (and the roman emperors) spoke the words of god out of their mouth. (didn't god bless them with high power.?). But the son of man, spoke with the power of the common man. The masses. And for someone to come and say they are taking power (wealth) away from the high is sedition. Treason. And that's why all the messiahs died. 600-years after Jesus, the Christ came during an opportune time and things changed. Rome got kicked out. Netanyahu would have you believe with his blond hair and blue eyes he is the messiah for the area. Yes it is a different time. But I think he is not a zealot like Jesus. Nor the christ the people are looking for.
On TV, a critic of Netanyahu explained that to be Jewish, all one has to do is be born by a mother with Jewish blood. Most people with Jewish blood do not keep the ancient faith. 99% of Jews refuse to live in Israel. The people of the area, who have lived there for several millinia have been many faiths. Transitioning through Christianity and Muslim. Yes there were still Jews and Christians there 100-200-years ago. They have kept their faith even as every one else transitioned. //// Spain and Portugal have given the Jews the right of return. As part of their effort to right the wrongs of 1,000-years ago during the inquisition. Many of the well heeled Jews who didn't want to leave business or family simply converted to Christianism. Which usually meant they could keep their high posts in the new government. That includes the Moors who ruled the Iberian peninsula for centuries and were tolerant of Jews. My guess is because they all had the same ancestry. Just different religions. Religions come and go. ///// The problem with Islamism, is that some still hold onto the old beliefs propagated by the writers from Moses, down to Abraham (lineage of David) and onward into times well after the death of Christ. These writings of sore losers and over zealous victors should be taken for their historical context. But zealots like Netanyahu and his mirror image in El kaida take these histories of the past as what should be today. And that's the problem. They all want to relive past glories that never were. And it's like some kid who reads a batman comics, and takes it to heart. Then stands on top of a modern gargoyle of the Chrysler building. Spreads his cape. and jumps off. The end.
Partners with Nissan for all electric vehicles for government and taxis. Bhutan's major exports are hydro power to India and the the happiness index. Its main (costly) import is fuel & lubricants. Which leads to constant deficits. ///// Perhaps with a surplus there could be a rise in the happiness index.
