Free Energy and why we don't have it!

I recently met an economic reporter in the elevator and we were having a chat. We got to the subject of free energy. I mentioned that the governments of the world are not really interested in green energy and he agreed. Imagine he said, if Exxon and all the other energy companies would declare bankruptcy, because there is some new device that generates free energy.

I also heard recently from a friend that the Arab oil companies make a point of buying out every single free energy patent that they can get there hands on. They put the idea in the deep freeze and make sure the invention never see the light of day ! Here is a shocking video that explains why we don't have free energy as of today:

The New Jihad Code

CNN has delivered the most amazing news story - perhaps the most important story since 9/11. It appears that there is a major upheaval about to take place in the Islamic world. If you can't see the video below try this LINK

CNN's investigative teams worked for two years, looking into reports of peace talks held between the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) and the Libyan Government. This culminated in the LIFG, a militant jihadist group once close to Osama bin Laden, repudiating al Qaeda. LIFG has managed to recruit the largest number of Jihadists, and many terrorists come from Libya.

"The Jihadi Code," is a documentary on the breakthrough against al Qaeda in Libya. It seems that Col. Moammar Gadhafi's son, Saif al Islam al Gadhafi, has managed to open dialogue with the LIFG and their commander Noman Benotman, who was until recently living in London. Gadhafi convinced Benotman he would free LIFG members from jail if they renounced their long war with the regime. He also promised Benotman immunity from prosecution if he returned to Libya. Benotman had warned bin Laden not to attack the United States, the same way Naval Marshal General Isoroku Yamamoto warned Japanese leaders not to 'wake the sleeping giant' by attacking Pearl Harbor

The code's challenge to al Qaeda is that Jihad has ethics and morals because it is for G-d. This means that it is forbidden to kill women, children, elderly people, priests, messengers, traders and the like. Betrayal is prohibited and it is vital to keep promises and treat prisoners of war in a good way. The code has been circulated among some of the most respected religious scholars in the Middle East and has been given widespread backing. The new code insist that civilians should not be targeted. This is in clear opposition to bin Laden and his terrorist network.

The "Corrective Studies" document, was completed in September, and the LIFG members will be encouraged to convince Libya's youth from going off to fight with al Qaeda. This will happen as soon as they are released from prison, which is imminent. Given its credibility and the fact that several other prominent Jihadists in the Middle East have turned against al Qaeda, the LIFG's about face is an important step toward ending al Qaeda's recruitment.

Finding a job - How To and How Not!

With the current job crises and having to look for a job, I'm pulling out all stops to nail that great job at that great company. My last job was during the Internet bubble so it was fairly easy to get the job - they grabbed almost anyone they could get because there was such a high demand for hi-tech employees. I must say that I'm fairly polished and look naturally honest and reliable. That helped make the process very easy, but today - for every job there are thousands of applicants. If you are not THE BEST, and AT THE TOP OF THE RESUME PILE don't expect to get the job. So check out these great sites for interesting information on how to land that dream job (Okay - even if it's only a way of bringing home the dough - that's good enough!)

113 People in a MiniVan?

I just received this newspaper cutting from South Africa and couldn't resist posting it to the blog. For those of you who are South African, it's probably not such a surprising article and will illicit a wry smile - yes that's how it is in South Africa - now what else would you expect!!! For non-South Africans it will probably just be a very surprising article! For those who cannot read the text - this is what it says:-

Big squeeze: Traffic officers were speechless when 113 people - 105 of them children - climbed out of this taxi. Some passengers are still inside.

Five outstanding warrants against the driver!

More than I00 children from a crèche were squeezed into a taxi registered to carry 26 people, and 28 children were found packed into a bakkie at Khayelitsha in Cape Town yesterday. Traffic officer Jaco Strydom and Vernon Johnson who stopped the taxi, were speechless when they counted l05 children between the ages at three and six, and eight adults including the driver, crammed into the taxi registered to carry 26 people. The crèche had hired the bus to take the children to the Monwabisi resort for the day. Mogammat Mustapha media liaison assistant for Cape Town Traffic Services said the driver was arrested because he had five outstanding warrants against him. He was fined for driving without a license, having an expired operator's disc and for overloading. The vehicle was taken to the Khayelitsha Traffic Department where it was released to the owner, Mustapha said. “The city at Cape Town’s Social Services Department transported the children and adults back to the crèche. They were disappointed that they had been denied their promised outing, but schools must ensure that the vehicles they using are roadworthy and that the drivers have the necessary licenses”.

Strydom said hours later, at the same spot, they pulled over a bakkie transporting school children. The driver ran away and taxis were organized to take the children home. Own Correspondent.
