Beware the Ides of March

Mathew Maavak, 07.02.2006 14:19

There is a clear and present danger of a unilateral US strike against Iran. It will however be grossly counterproductive. The Iranians need only retaliate against two or three major oil installations, besides sinking enough tonnage to make the Straits of Hormuz perilous to navigation. Letting loose a tiny armada of floating mines and employing a dirty nuke will precipitate global economic pandemonium.

El transporte ante el fin de la era del petróleo


izqda, Reyes González, portavoz Plataforma refinería no, drcha Roberto Bermejo El Plan Estratégico de Infraestructuras y Transporte (PEIT) 2005-2020 pretende, en lo fundamental, construir 6.000 kilómetros de autovías y autopistas y 9.000 kilómetros de líneas férreas de alta velocidad (más de 250 km/h), de los cuales unos 1.000 serían exclusivamente para viajeros y el resto líneas mixtas. Estos objetivos implican que España se convierta en 2020 en el primer Estado de la Unión Europea-15 (UE-15) en kilómetros de autopistas/autovías, año en el que contaría con el 50% de toda la red de alta velocidad ferroviaria de la UE. El PEIT está presupuestado en 250.000 millones de euros, pero el Estado tendrá que invertir mucho más para llevarlo a cabo (los constructores ya se lo han dicho al Gobierno), y no sólo por el desfase habitual del 20% entre lo presupuestado y lo gastado, sino, sobre todo, por la escalada imparable de los precios de las materias primas. En este artículo voy a analizar el PEIT de acuerdo con dos escenarios: el convencional y el del techo del petróleo. El primero es lineal: la dinámica socioeconómica de las últimas décadas continuará en el futuro. El segundo tiene en cuenta el colapso socioeconómico provocado por el techo del petróleo. En el primer escenario confronto los objetivos proclamados con citas del propio PEIT, con la opinión de los economistas del transporte y con la política de la UE.

They are the same lot who support Sedation law, anti-terrorism acts, anti-freedom of press and publication laws and other draconian laws. Because they will affect Muslims only! Yet, in he name of free speech they kiss and promote Salman Rushdie’s Satanic Verses like the holy torah while murder David Irvin’s free speech.

Gwladys Fouche, 07.02.2006 01:22

By Gwladys Fouché

The Guardian
Monday February 6, 2006

Jyllands-Posten, the Danish newspaper that first published the cartoons of the prophet Muhammad that have caused a storm of protest throughout the Islamic world, refused to run drawings lampooning Jesus Christ, it has emerged today.

The Danish daily turned down the cartoons of Christ three years ago, on the grounds that they could be offensive to readers and were not funny.

Today I am filled with deep humility Plichta writes of this model as follows. "There was a time I used to make fun of the Apocalypse of St John and believed it to be a totally unreliable historical source. Today I am filled with deep humility, perhaps because I am now able to give a concrete description of the foundation of the world as seen by St John with my mathematical discoveries, and thus possibly open a new way to all of humanity which has now reached a dead end."

Solidarity Economics Begins without private cars

jasse, 06.02.2006 18:51

Design, Walk, then Bike! Are there any new ideas out there Bolivia has about 25 cars per 1000 people. Many of them are older models and they are owned almost exclusively by the 10 percent of the population that is wealthy. The USA has 900 cars per 1000 – and that is not counting all of the trucks and government vehicles. If China were to reach half the level of car ownership in the USA, China would need to build or buy more than 600 million cars – more than twice the number in the USA today! But, before the Chinese or the Indians could enjoy driving them very far, the world’s climate would change terribly… and irreversibly!

WHO LET THE DOGS OUT? The Bush-Cole Bombing Connection

Cheryl Seal, 06.02.2006 17:13

If you read a description of the escape of the Al Qaeda crew that bombed the USS Cole back in 2000, it is hard not to conclude that the "escape" was an inside job. These guys, held in a top security prison, had help, for sure, both in the prison and outside. But who? Who had the motive and the means? Who actually NEEDS a terrorist threat right now more than anyone else?

Selective Free Speech

Biploby, 06.02.2006 14:34

The cartoon regarding Prophet was published in September 2005 and since then the newspaper people apologised. We assumed everything is over. However, Sharons and Nathanyahoos of the world went on to republish the cartoon under the guise of FREE SPEECH at a very questionable time. I went on to test the free speech and published comments below by Jews about Jews. Guess what?! They were removed.

10 Reasons Why Leonard Peltier Should Be Released

Eto Akwahnv, 06.02.2006 00:12

Leonard Peltier An innocent man, Leonard Peltier was wrongfully convicted for the deaths on June 26, 1975, of two agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). He has served over 30 years in federal prison despite proof that he was convicted on the basis of fabricated and suppressed evidence, as well as coerced testimony. He also has been denied fair consideration for Executive Clemency and parole. The U.S. appellate courts, by their decisions, have recognized the undisputed misconduct in Peltier's case, yet have refused, by misapplying legal standards and claiming lack of authority, to take corrective action. This is clearly an abuse of the legal standards of American justice.

2nd Renaissance -2

Lothar, 05.02.2006 05:13

Infinity drove him mad. Georg Cantor (1845-1918), by his origination of modern set theory and his studies of the nature of infinity, left science a valuable legacy. Cantor was regularly admitted to a psychiatric clinic within the University of Halle, in Germany, where he lectured and worked as a Professor of Mathematics. On each occasion that he became ill he had been thinking about infinity and the continuum hypothesis. Such intense thought, at the boundaries of his comprehension, caused Cantor to suffer repeated mental breakdowns. Infinity drove him mad.
