Zizek: There will be no return to normality after Covid. We are entering a post-human era & will have to invent a new way of life — RT Op-ed

Now the human race has to embark on the profoundly difficult and painful process of deciding what form the ‘new normality’ is going to take. The world has lived with the pandemic for most of 2020, but what is our situation with regard to it now, in early December, in the middle of what the European media is terming ‘the second wave’? Firstly, we should not forget that the distinction between the first and second wave is centred on Europe: in Latin America the virus followed a different path. The peak was reached in between the two European waves, and now, as Europe suffers the second of these, the situation in Latin America has marginally improved.

Moray/Tesla Technology: Star Wars Now Typical strategic ABM uses of Tesla weapons are shown in figure 13. In addition, of course, smaller Tesla howitzer systems for anti-tactical ballistic missile defense of tactical troops and installations could be constituted of more conventional field missile systems using paired or triplet radars, of conventional external appearance, in a scalar interferometer mode. With Moray generators as power sources and multiply deployed reentry vehicles with scalar antennas and transmitters, ICBM reentry systems now can become long range "blasters" of the target areas, from thousands of kilometers distance (figure 14).

Monsanto Guilty Verdict Is Only Beginning

William Engdahl15 August 2018 A jury trial in California has resulted in a guilty verdict against the agrichemical and GMO giant, Monsanto, now Bayer/Monsanto. The judge has ordered Monsanto to pay damages of USD 289 Million to former school groundskeeper Dewayne Johnson, who has non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. His lawyer argued it was caused by Monsanto’s glyphosate-based weed-killer Roundup. Not surprisingly Monsanto plans to appeal the verdict. The Johnson trial, Dewayne Johnson v. Johnson, age 46, is a former pest control manager for a California county school system, where he applied Roundup and Monsanto’s Ranger Pro on school grounds across the county up to 30 times per year for more than two and a half years.

Surplus Energy Economics. One of the quirks of economics is that, within GDP (gross domestic product), all output is included, irrespective of what it really adds to prosperity.

Surplus Energy Economics

GDP, like Oscar Wilde’s cynic, knows “the price of everything, but the value of nothing”. If government paid 100,000 people to dig holes, and another 100,000 to fill them in, the cost of this activity would be included in GDP. Is there a better way of measuring prosperity? Well, consider two people who both earn $30,000. Theoretically, their circumstances match. This is analogous to what has been happening to the economy. On the ground data bears this out. For the economy as a whole, it can be illustrated like this: Fig. 1: “Growth”? GDP is higher in the second picture, but far more is spent on energy and essentials, leaving a smaller surplus available for everything else. Where this leaves the economy is with two pictures that do not match – raw growth numbers imply a prosperity that people seem not to experience. The energy economy. Conscious competence learning model matrix- unconscious incompetence to unconscious competence.

Conscious competence theory - summary outline The conscious competence theory and related matrix model explain the process and stages of learning a new skill (or behaviour, ability, technique, etc.)

conscious competence learning model matrix- unconscious incompetence to unconscious competence

The concept is most commonly known as the 'conscious competence learning model', or 'conscious competence learning theory'; sometimes 'conscious competence ladder' or 'conscious competence matrix'. Other descriptions are used, including terminology relating to 'conscious skilled' and 'conscious unskilled' (which incidentally are preferred by Gordon Training). Occasionally in more recent adapted versions a fifth stage or level is added to the conscious competance theory, although there is no single definitive five-stage model, despite there being plenty of very useful and valid debate about what the fifth stage might be. learning and training in stages Put simply:

Why Bats Are Insanely Attracted To Wind Turbines? Bat Kills at Wind Turbines Recent studies have reported large numbers of bats being killed at wind farms in many parts of North America and Europe.

Why Bats Are Insanely Attracted To Wind Turbines?

Project monitoring has also discovered significant bat mortality at the Mexico La Venta II wind farm. Bat kills at wind turbines were first discovered in Australia. Small numbers of bats were first recorded in the United States at wind power projects in California during bird monitoring. Some time ago, an estimated 1,400-4,000 bats were recorded as killed during 2008 at the Mountaineer Wind Energy Center in West Virginia .

The frequency and number of bat kills at wind turbines are much greater than for any other type of human-built structure. Ancient Society Research Resources. Keith Barry: Brain magic. Holographic Universe.
