“A Berlin, on pourrait recruter 20 chomeurs pour controller si les proprietaires de chiens ramassent les crottes de leurs animaux” (Claudia Hammerlig, deputee’ Verte). Je pense que ces controlleurs de crottes doivent eux-meme les ramasser  s’ils donnent une amende: ou bien ils les ramassent ou bien les clients paient une amende. 

Les controlleurs de crottes de chiens doivent pouvoir louer aux proprietaires de chiens les equipement necessaire pour ramasser les crottes

 “Seul celui qui travaille doit pouvoir manger?” (Depute’ alleman Munteferingo). Et Tous ceux qui touchent des allocations doivent fumer et boire de la bierre?

La pauvrete’ decoule du comportement des gens de sous-culture? Sous-entendu, c’est pas le porte-monnaie qui est vide, mais l’esprit. Comme si les riches qui achetent des objets de luxes qu’ils n’utilizent pas, ou bien une seule fois, ont tant d’esprit a distribuer?

To where the 200,000 inhabitant of Al Raqqa were transferred to? The USA has the humanitarian duty to save all civilians and Not commit war crimes as ISIS and allow UN team to visit this totally bombed and demolished city. 

Now that Turkey entered Afrin, it want to attack the city of Manbej in the Syria Kurdish canton of Kobani? This city co-habit “Arab” tribes, Kurds, Turkmenes, tcherkess and Tchetchenes. It was liberated in 2015 from ISIS.

The northern region of Syria is at proximity of historic cities such as Mardin and Nusaybin that mandated France over Syria and Lebanon gave to Turkey in 1935

A Kobani, dans la residence Kongra Star, ce sont les femmes qui traitent les plaintes de vendetta des crimes d’honneur, avant de les referer a la justice quand elles ne trouvent pas de compromis.

En 2015, l’ organisation Kurde de Syrie (PYD), a l’instigation des Americains, ont rases des villages entieres dans la region de Tell Abyad pour que les Americains construisent leurs bases militaires (des crimes de guerre documentes par Amnesty)

A l’ Assemblee’ Legislative du canton Kurde Al Jazira (Cezire) dans la ville de Amoude siege 101 membres , dont la moitie’ sont feminins.

Rojava (Ouest du Kurdistan) de Syrie, Iraq et Turkie

Les grandes puissances coloniales ont l’intention d’hypoteque’ l’avenir du Nord Syrie, riche en hydrocarbure (25% des reserves de terre), surtout dans la region de Al Malikiyah (Rumeillah) pres de la riviere Tigre.

Le contrat social de la Federation democratique des Kurdes de la Syrie rejette le nationalism et prone une societe’ egalitaire, paritaire et le respect des droits des minorites. (Mireille Court et Chris Den Hond, envoyes speciaux du Monde Diplomatique)

Les organizations Kurdes PKK et le PYD se referent a Abdullah Ocalan (Kurdish/ Turkish leader in prison since 1999) et a l’ecologiste Americain Murray Brookchin (1921-2006)

The Syrian Kurds are located in 3 cantons in north Syria (Afrin that Turkey captured), Kobani and Al Jazirat or Cezire). They elect their own parliaments. Those in the canton of Afrin and Kobani pay ideological allegiance to Abdullah Ocalan.

This Turkish/Kurdish leader, Abdullah Ocalan. has been in Turkish prison since 1999, on an island. Late Syrian President Hafez Assad had to deliver him after Turkey warned of imminent war if Ocalan is Not transferred over.

The Kurds in canton of Al jazira pay also allegiance to the American ecologist Murray Brookchin (1921-2006). The Kurds in north-west Iraq also have same ideological allegiance to those in Syria, but the feudal Barazani clan in eastern north Iraq is for sale to highest bidder.

Europe relied on the silk, spices, perfume, and luxury items imported from China and India through Persia, Turkey and Egypt.

The Great Wall of China is the only human made construction that can be seen from space.  Three centuries before Portugal put to sea its galleons to circumnavigate oceans, China had fleet of ships 3 times bigger than the biggest that Spain constructed.

Democracy was developed in the City-States of Byblos, Sidon, Tyr, Ugarit and Mary several centuries before Athens existed.  These City-States had democracy within their city limits as Athens and Rome emulated later on.

Why within city-State limits?  Because communication and transport were limited and the administration of such a complex democratic system was not feasible at a larger magnitude at the time; thus democracy was not translated to the colonies as Greek Athens also failed to do.

We can confirm that the Near East Mediterranean region was the bedrock of all civilizations of the Mediterranean Sea in religion, philosophy, sciences, literature and arts. Regardless of genetic sources, which are an amalgamation of many nations, anyone from current States in the Near East should take pride in their ancient civilizations and their original identity as the forefathers of contemporary modern democratic civilizations in Europe and the Greater Mediterranean Sea regions.

“Young people should prove to be good sons in the family, polite and respectful in society, prudent and loyal, liking the company of good men.  After learning and applying these moral values, you feel you have energy to acquiring knowledge, then study and read.”

60 is the Number of fragrance producers (which employ 13,000 workers) based in Grasse, France—known as the “Silicon Valley of perfume.”

5% of the global population with anosmia, the inability to smell.

How to train your smelling nose? Ugo Charron: “It’s a long journey.  Aspiring perfumers typically have an undergraduate degree in chemistry, and go through 5–10 years of training and professional apprenticeships. The curricula includes advanced chemistry classes, blending, raw materials, safety regulations, storytelling, and of course, a lot of smelling. At the end of the training, a perfumer must be able to ID around 500 scents within seconds.

Electronic noses are used to detect spoiled food, gas leaks, or even knock-off perfumesNASA’s ENose is so sensitive it can sniff the difference between Pepsi and Coke.

“Conveyor belt” Civilization: Tribes bordering urban and rural regions. transmitters of cultural differences, prime “intelligence gatherer or front-line intelligence agencies” for the powerful neighboring empires. They are the guides in time of wars; they guard the security of caravans crossing regions and extend facilities in water and supplies.

Le monde est plein de choses tres belles. On passe sa vie sans les connaitre. Sans un passport colonial, c’est difficile de voir toutes ces beautes: On doit se contenter des beautes locales

Les adolescent males n’aime pas la vie: la mort les comprend mieux que tout

L’histoire appartient a ceux qui la vie: tous les autres s’invitent et la raconte a chacun leu leu (fake news?)

I saw a news report from England that showed some doctors were aborting babies because they were baby girls! This shocked me so I looked into it and realised this is far from unusual, it is the norm in some countries.

Girls are targeted for abortion just because they are girls and seen of as lesser value. Abortion is wiping out thousands of girls and pro choice feminists won’t say a word. As a #prolifefeminist I speak up for girls at all stages of life. #LoveBoth #Savethe8th www.loveboth.ie ( 20 year-old Celine Murray)

Cost of Lemonade stand, Artificial Intelligence program,

Three decades ago, I audited an Artificial Intelligence programming course. The professor never programmed one, but it was the rage.

The prof. was candid and said: “The only way to learn these kinds of programming is by doing it.  The engine was there to logically arrange the “If this ,then do that” questions in order to answer a technical problem. Nothing to it.

I failed even to try a very simple program: I had a heavy workload and didn’t have the passion for any engineering project at the time.

I cannot say that I know Artificial Intelligence, regardless of the many fancy technical and theoretical books I read on the subject

Studying entrepreneurship without doing it is like studying the appreciation of music without listening to it.

(Actually, I did study so many subject matters, and the ones supposed to be of the practical ones, but failed to do or practice any skills. My intention was to stay away from theoretical subjects and ended up sticking to the theories. For example, I enrolled in Industrial Engineering, thinking it was mostly of the hand-on discipline. Wrong: it was mostly theoretical simply because the university lacked labs. and technical staff and machineries)

The cost of setting up a lemonade stand (or whatever metaphorical equivalent you dream up) is almost 100% internal. Until you confront the fear and discomfort of being in the world and saying, “here, I made this,” it’s impossible to understand anything at all about what it means to be a entrepreneur. Or an artist.

Never enough

There’s never enough time to be as patient as we need to be.

Not enough slack to focus on the long-term, too much urgency in the now to take the time and to plan ahead.

That urgent sign post just ahead demands all of our intention (and attention), and we decide to invest in, “down the road,” down the road.

It’s not only more urgent, but it’s easier to run to the urgent meeting than it is to sit down with a colleague and figure out the truth of what matters and the why of what’s before us.

And there’s never enough money to easily make the investments that matter.

Not enough surplus in the budget to take care of those that need our help, too much on our plate to be generous right now.

The short term bills make it easy to ignore the long-term opportunities.

Of course, the organizations that get around the universal and insurmountable problems of not enough time and not enough money are able to create innovations, find resources to be generous and prepare for a tomorrow that’s better than today. It’s not easy, not at all, but probably (okay, certainly) worth it.

We’re going to spend our entire future living in tomorrow—investing now, when it’s difficult, is the single best moment.

Dans chaque corps crible’ de balles, on doit assumer que notre tour est prochain. Dans cet univers de forces aveugles et mercenaires. Partout, l’humanite’ est en cause et tout est cause’ par l’homme.

Horror stories recounted by US soldiers: the CIA encouraged our behavior of smothering Iraqi girls in plastic bags before raping them

Social psychologists David Dunning and Justin Kruger identified this all-too-frequent cognitive bias of “illusory superiority.” In a nutshell, the people who know the least are convinced they know the most. What is worse than an incompetent boss is one who thinks he’s a genius. The two often go together.

Mushroom management” is a slangy term for the communication style that many inept managers practice with their underlings: typical instructions for fungi cultivation: “Kept in the dark and periodically given a load of manure.

If you can detect an aroma, it’s likely that an expert Nose was involved. Largely behind the scenes, fragrance and odor experts are in high demand. Noses not only create fine fragrances, they also formulate the smell of dish-washing soap, candles, food, kitty litter, trash bags, car interiors, and even luxury condos.

The use of the word Federal in the name Federal Reserve leads the public to believe that the Federal Reserve is a government institution, when it is really a private corporation owned by foreign and domestic banks and operated for profit.

The Federal Reserve controls America’s money supply and interest rates, and they manipulate the entire economy, in violation of many articles in the Constitution

The definition of dollar has changed to hide the fact that a dollar is Not money, but a unit of measurement for gold and silver coin. For example: 1. Title 12 United States Code Section 152 says: “The terms lawful money or lawful money of the United States shall be construed to mean gold or silver coin of the United States.”

Ce n’est pas ta responsibilite’ de changer les individus: la communaute’ doit offrire les opportunites pour que l’individu se transforme. C’est le but des activites de masses. Les institutions des pays Nordiques furent etablis pour cet effet.

The two Shi3a towns of Fou3a and Kefraya in Edleb province have been encircled since 2013 and pounded by terrorist factions. Has the UN forgotten about these kinds of Syrians?

The best approach to explain the succession of civilizations and Empires in the Fertile Crescent (in Lebanon, Palestine and Syria or Phoenicia, Canaan, Aram) that raided and conquered the Near East civilizations is the analogy of survival among the lions and lionesses empires or warlike empires versus settled and wealthy empires.

Alan Greenspan, Chairman of the Federal Reserve from 1987 to 2006, stated at the annual Dinner of Francis Boyer Lecture of The American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research on December 5, 1996:

“Augmenting concerns about the Federal Reserve is the perception that we are a secretive organization, operating behind closed doors, not always in the interests of the nation as a whole. This is regrettable, and we continuously strive to alter this mis-perception.”

Quinoa, drought-resistant crop, contains a toxic compound called saponins, a bitter component that’s used by the plant to ward off predators. It isn’t actually a grain (it’s part of the goosefoot family, related to spinach and beets. Protein content of quinoa is 18% versus 8% in rice

Toxic compound called saponins in Quinoa needs to be removed before consumption, which can be accomplished by polishing or washing the grain, which makes processing it expensive. (The polishing process also reduces the fiber of the grain, lowering its protein, vitamin, and mineral levels).

“The Peter principle” applies to all public institutions when any employee in a hierarchy rises to the level of his or her own incompetence.

Ca ne vaut rien d’insister pour que quelqu’un voit la realite’ en face: l’important est d’avoir un sourire serain aux levres

Si notre imagination est puissante de se souvenir des bons moments, les mauvais ne formeront que de reperes et contrastes

Je passe le plus clair de mon temps a l’obscurcir

Quand on se prend pour quelqu’un, on oublit qu’on fond on est plusieurs.

A few statistics on Martin-Baker ejection seats in jet fighters

10%: Proportion of Martin-Baker ejection seats that have saved a life

89.2% Crewmember survival rate for ejections

1-in-3: Number of ejectees who suffer spinal compression injuries

262–306: Miles per hour at which a person is ejected from the cockpit by an ejection seat

12–14: How many Gs a body is subjected to when ejecting

The level of liability for modern ejection seats is unique in the engineering field. Within 2 seconds, the complicated process go through these phases. Here’s what happens when a pilot pulls the ejection handle:

  • The cockpit canopy is jettisoned as an explosive cartridge under the seat sends it up an angled guide rail, while a series of restraints tighten around the pilot’s body.
  • An underseat rocket motor fires, lifting the pilot 200 additional feet into the air in order to prevent a collision with the plane’s tail.
  • drogue parachute deploys, stabilizing the seat and pilot, who is still strapped in at this stage.
  • A sensor automatically deploys the pilot’s main parachute, but only at 10,000 feet or below, where the air is breathable. The drogue detaches from the seat.
  • The seat now detaches from the pilot, whose parachute opens. Once the chute is open, a motor separates seat and pilot, who can now land.

Third class of religious sects for every religion are the tribes living close to urban surrounding and fertile zones; they adopt nomadic characteristics, but have acquired flexible line of thinking. This new category can resolve many difficulties in working out a taxonomy for religious sects,

Constipation didn’t bother me when I was sick, as if bowel movement was the last in he priorities. Actually, constipation is the first indication that you are about to get sick

Mother was sick like a dog for an entire week, and then she decided to pay a visit to her garden and fell. We recovered her 2 hours later, all bruised.

Best therapy for elderly people, pretty hard on hearing: each one tell his story, and everyone else pretend to have heard clearly. They all share big laughs.

From Wikileaks: Since 2012, Saudi Kingdom took the lead to rally Turkey and Qatar in order to oust Bashar Assad by all means. USA, France and England strongly were behind that initiative. Currently, Saudi Kingdom is at extreme odd with Qatar and Turkey and almost on its knees in the Yemen war.

Saudi Arabia MBC stops all Turkish series from this March: They claim the series are used to disseminate Ottoman Empire propaganda (Mostly accurate with this Erdogan regime). Good beginning related to this virulent Turkish aggression on all fronts.
