The US Oil Spill
October 2, 2010 § Leave a comment
I wanted to write an article on the US oil spill, mostly on the dance of BP leaders to avoid account ability and taking response ability after the spill, but these two gentlemen, Clarke & Dawe, from Down Under so aptly convey the core of that, that I feel I have nothing to add.

A surge on EMP attacks!
September 11, 2010 § Leave a comment
Apparently, there is a surge in the media on potential EMP attacks:
“An EMP Attack could be more damaging than an Nuke Bomb”, “Severe Danger to U.S. of EMP Attack”, “EMP Attack: Only 30 Million Americans Survive, and “EMP Attack Would Decimate America”, “EMP could leave ‘9 out of 10 Americans dead'”. And that is just the tip of the iceberg.
Is it a distraction? Or is the threat real? Or is it spin doctors?
Searching the Web

Searching the net I start with a single website or file that makes sense and has some key words on it related to my search. If possible I then triangulate three of the major search engines that suit my quest. Meta engines are handy for that. Most meta’s allow queesters and seekers to set which search engines will be asked for their gathered wisdom.
Is Moscow preparing for some kind of “strategic event”?

As these words are written, Moscow is preparing for some kind of “strategic event.” The Russian navy has begun to aggressively hunt American, French and British ballistic missile submarines.
Time may be running short.

Rutabagas of a quiet past in a stormy present

By the turn of the twentieth century scientific group think was in an impasse. The branch of physics that was most developed as an experimental science was Galilean-Newtonian mechanics.
The law of inertia
Bodies when removed from interaction with other bodies will continue in their states of rest or straight line uniform motion. In other words, the motion of such bodies is unaccelerated.
Supposedly, the laws of mechanics take the same form in all inertial systems, that is, in all those coordinate systems which can be obtained by subjecting any one inertial system to arbitrary Galilean transformations.
All mechanistic branches, such as the theory of elastic bodies and hydrodynamics, or the mechanics of rigid bodies, can be deduced from the mechanics of free mass points by introducing suitable energies and by carrying out certain limiting processes.

Let’s use the analogy of a bubble, an economic bubble. Every dream sphere is like a bubble that is full of scraps of paper with symbols on it [money], thoughts, and ideas. The bubble itself, the container of the dream, is the image.
An economic bubble, sometimes referred to as a speculative bubble, a market bubble, a price bubble, a financial bubble, or a speculative mania, is …
Ongoing financial requirements …
December 11, 2009 § 1 Comment
We need to know the financial requirements so we know how much we will need to operate with a profit, and we need to know how to raise the required funds. That only seems easy. How to accurately express that in numbers is not obvious. And I don’t have a financial background. Neither do any of the people I know that have their own businesses.
