Have You Heard..?

April 4, 2011

Blogged in the manner of Blethyn’s opening line in the excellent Joe Wright movie Pride and Prejudice… Mr Bennett—have you heard!

Exclamation for sure, no need for the question mark..

Today – ht: TP – I learned of the American Society of Agronomy’s publication for R&D at Lincoln University in Canterbury. Reporting a likely solution to dairy herd risks in the environment.. to wit BIOCHAR vs GHG gas nitrogen oxides in cow urine on kiwi paddocks..

So I say unto you If they can be aware then so ought kiwis.. wot!

ps: among conclusions expressed by the authors:—

If other studies confirm the relatively long residence time expected of biochar in the soil, then the “win-win” situation of both sequestering C while reducing N2O emissions may prove achievable.

NOW.. for the HOW.. and WHO..

March 30, 2011

Haven’t I told of THIS many times..

Now for the HOW and WHO… is doing it.. and risk-free. Boy, does multi-small both ways trading pay!! The big difference is computer use as this guy points out. From around 2006.

Of course, the salutary lesson is not to rely on the price ALWAYS rising… but since when did gross profiteers take any notice of that? Yeah, I know, likely just before their clients took the big dive..

So.. whatever.. don’t let it be you. Forewarned etc..

ps: I sometimes hear motorists and motoring advisors talk nice on the oilcos.. ie reiterate the spiel or excuse for a gas price hike.. but seldom take them – spokesfolks – seriously. How could I knowing what I know… and now you.. and hopefully soon, they shall know.

This is not an argument on quit fooling, more a notion of quit tooling the ripoff. On yes they are, it’s called consumer compliance.

Exposition and/or Expansion?

March 25, 2011

Item one sprang to mind over lunch today.. listening to part of Midday Report on radionz. The programme Worldwatch to be precise, which generally does a good job of presenting diverse items from the global news calendar in a well-covered, if often soundbitten (pithy) way.

Yet in one topic there seemed to me an overstressed news value in regard to nuclear power developments.. sort of tunnel, or maybe pipe, vision.

So here’s a deliberate attempt to expand their take..
This reuter’s report points out geothermal power – currently only 4% of a vast Asian resource – as the viable alternative to nuclear energy..

And given Australasian investor positions in the stuff maybe a feature to come?… rather than be ignored and thus present nukes or not the somewhat bleak prospect.. [ Less risky would be a greater diversity of power sources with lowered nuke-power in the total mix ]


Having run out a need for exposition to attain objective journalism the following can be taken as my own item 2..

To hand the mixed fuel price messaging of radio commentators.. ie. heard the other day a speculative voice to effect that Japan’s crisis meant greater oil uptake, so said to be shortening supplies elsewhere—and raising prices!

When in point of fact, the tsunami wiped out a lot of the northern industrialized region and Japanese expertise said fossil fuel use would suffer a significant decline until rebuild has gotten underway — months out!

Having said this we can perhaps see why a spike in futures is presently underway .. which is to point out that if no one credibly challenges the speculative vox as and when it sounds off, the assumption of acceptance by the populace(consumers) is taken, or ‘written in’ as the market terms it, and everybody gets to pay their false tune.

Shouldn’t we be asking just who is setting these price raises? And why? Further, why should it be the case that globalization holds only to one market model—yes, that the market shall set the price—when the market is today vastly more than it was at globalization’s origins?

Keep on the good work folks.. we’re listening.

ps: several probs here this week, the pos of theft not least among them for tf. Take care with whom you associate being the lesson I’d suppose.

The Wonder Guys..

March 22, 2011

Yes, for those showing interest in ..well.. who did design those Fuku-Daiichi reactors back then..? we have an answer as follows:—

… last week, General Electric Co. (CR = Aa2 stable) came into focus as the designer of the nuclear reactors at the 40-year-old Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. Owing to the situation at Fukushima, the company faces credit negative risks to its reputation and nuclear business…

justifiable consequences or no thus expositioned..

Part of an expansionary platform OTOH we find Australian Tim Dean @ Australian abc unleashing a part explanation toward Australians. And, given this opportunity, your goodselves.. I liked the salient:—

“Lying just beneath the surface of all our well thought-through political attitudes, just deep enough to evade easy observation, is our implicit worldview…

..One of the characteristic traits of conservatism is to see the world at large as a dangerous place, filled with threats natural and man-made. This is why conservatives tend to be tough on crime, more concerned about the threat of illegal immigration and more ‘hawkish’ when it comes to defence and foreign policy.”

Meant to read in a phrase: scratch a conservative in contemporary partisan politics and fulminations therefrom can include all manner of inane and irrational endorsements..

ps: besides I’ve heard tell how M&M were but drifters til a certain ceo @ cei found fulminatory fundings.. should you get my drift..
