☆ German Wind Farm Projects (GWFP) Benefit Project Creators While Investors Get To Dine On “Sour” Kraut

News Analysis: High Yields for Investors in German Wind Farm Projects (GWFP)  has been dismal. Inaccurate Wind Projections, Poor Location Choices, Lack of Quality in Equipment used, Poor Equipment Coordination, and Inept Management have produced losses for many ‘GWFP’.

Since a mere 10% miscalculation of Estimated Wind Energy at a site can create a 30% reduction of anticipated Electricity Produced and Energy Sold.

Some people think the German Politicians in the “Rush to Be Green” did not put on their “Thinking Caps”. It behooved them to  extensively analyze the entire data available on Wind Farms  and the Government’s Methodology to promote the same. Apparently, this did not occur. Glaring irregularities on both Cost and Performance which are now well known were not discussed widely.

The “Ostrich Principle” used by many Environmentalists helped push Politicians to achieve their ‘Rush to Be Green’: Ignore the Costs, The Facts, The Probabilities, The Profits, and Rely on the Imagery (Just like a Hologram). 

The Reality that many people choose to ignore is: Coal and Petroleum are both Less Costly, More Efficient, and have Greater Consistent Reproducibility than any of the Fashionable “New Energy Sources” Marketed.

Hydro-Electric Power and Nuclear Energy are both Clean, Efficient and Reliable but have Cost and Other Issues of Geographic Scale that Governments need to examine.

Promoters who have a lot of “Hot Air” sell ‘GWFP’ to the Leichtglaubig very well. Oddly enough, for the Germans (with their renowned Technical Expertise over the Centuries), this appears to be the case regarding ‘GWFP’. A Promoter’s ‘Money-Maker’; a Investor’s Loss.

Reality.

When Seeing Canada, Visitors All Have Travel Companions: The Canadian Government

News Analysis: It is alleged that Canadian Intelligence Agents are monitoring Visitors to their Beautiful Country as the sight-seers travel about. Perhaps the Canadian Government is of the opinion that all “Visitors Are Potential Terrorists”?  Maybe the Visitors want to spy on Maple Syrup Processing? It may suspect a Terrorist Behind Every Tree; who knows.

Travelers may want to avoid visiting Canada until it Ceases Abusing the Privacy Expectations of People. Visitors spend Millions of Dollars a year on Vacations and such each year in the that Country. Why give them ANY money while they treat the visitor with blatant disrespect by surreptitiously monitoring he or she? There are too many other Countries that will respect Visitors for being Visitors, and Not of Being Terrorists.

Obviously Deviant Thought (to the point of being a Mass Mental Paranoia) is evidenced by the Canadian Government’s Approval of such Intrusive Actions upon Visitors.

We can only suggest to our Many Readers who might consider visiting Beautiful Canada: “Stay Away, It Is Okay”.

Reality.

☆ A $391 Billion Dollar F-35 Aircraft Program To Serve Three Masters May Be Expected To Serve None Well

News Analysis:  The 35% Composite F-35 Aircraft is based on the Pentagon’s wishful thinking that Three Different Versions (with Varied Operational Parameters) can be combined into one Basic Aircraft Design. This $391 Billion Dollar Program, the most expensive Aircraft Program ever, displays the Military-Industrial Complex’s Mutual Onanistic Efforts.

The F-35 Cost Savings which were to be realized by this “Three-Into-One” Design Approach from the outset was questionable, at best. The Cost Overages are abundant now while the purported ‘Light-Weight Construction’ has each of these Versions allegedly at or above design limits.

Cracking of Structural Componentry, which is presently occurring in this Aircraft,  may be expected of stressed Carbon Composites may people think. Until the U.S. Air Force reveals if this was Composites or Metals Failure (or both) it will not bode well for an Alleged Super-Maneuverable Aircraft which this was Promoted to Be.

The Public Cannot see how a $391 Billion Dollar Aircraft have so many various ‘permanent’ and temporary problems; as the F-35 Pilots complain that the Aircraft Design does not allow them to see Enemy Aircraft Approaching from the Rear of their F-35’s (due to poor obstructed Fuselage Design).

As for the Air Frames’ Vaunted Cad/Cam Design Capabilities perhaps “Garbage In; Garbage Out” (GIGO) applies to their Multifarious Incorrect Engineering Assumptions. These errors have now been evidenced by these many problems such as “Structural Cracks” and “Shorter Aircraft Life Spans”.

☆ Touted World Financial Recovery From 2008 Has Legs Of Straw

News Analysis:  Nations’ Central Banks, led by the U.S. Federal Reserve and its  Chairman, who is departing shortly, used up his “Ammunition” against Deflation by keeping Interest Rates near Zero . Now what can he or his Replacement Minion do to lessen rates even further, if needed?

After five and one-half years, where is the “Great Recovery” his Cohorts in the U.S. White House promised voters. The “Shuck and Jive” that the Media have been passing on to the Public originated in the White House.

The touted Stock Market Recovery has been a “Bubble” with no substance to support it. Where are the heavy earnings to support the high Stock Prices? Where is the Abundant Manufacturing and Exports of Goods needed?

Now, Investors around the World appear to be understanding that a “Bubble-Master Created Bubble” may soon burst; as did the Real Estate Market and the Precious Metals Market.

Those who hold Bonds can expect elevated Interest Rates to destroy Market Values of the Low Interest Yielding Bonds fashionable during the “Bearded” Federal Reserve Leader’s questionable Reign.

Those “Masters of the Universe” in Banking, Commerce, and Finance who did not see the Debacle of 2008 looming in their immediate future (at that time) apparently again suffer from Myopia in not seeing the pending World-Wide Slump awaiting them shortly.

As for the U.S. White House and its lackeys, if things collapse, and they get dis-spirited, they can always fly to Las Vegas, Nevada and be entertained by their friends (as they did when Benghazi, Libya was on fire a couple of years ago).

Peru and Chile: Two Countries In A Mutual Dispute Become Two Winners To Salute

News Analysis: Peru and Chile have received a Ruling from the International Court of Justice, in the Hague,  regarding Maritime Boundary between the two Countries. Of the 38,000 km2 (14,672 mi2) in question, 22,000 km2 (8,494 mi2) went to Peru and 16.000 km2 (6,177 mi2), which was closer to shore, benefited Chile.

The best aspect of this arrangement is that it will allow two friendly abutting Nations to enjoy the Maritime Wealth of these stipulated portions, without question.

Both Chile and Peru have Wise Leaders who realize that Cooperation Outperforms Conflict Every Time.

Investors should consider putting some monies into these Two Countries for attainment of Long Term Financial Diversification. Both Countries offer many Business Opportunities to those with Foresight.

When Rats, Who Cannot Take The Heat, Think There Is A Fire, Are Prone To Abandon Ship

News Analysis: The Usurping of the U.S. Constitution’s First and Fourth Amendments along with the Abandonment of Sacrosanct Worlds’ Right To Individual Privacy by some American and British Civil Servants is causing the Interlopers grief. Their Haughty Days of Privacy Invasion are getting the “Light of Day” focused thereon. Like Cockroaches scurrying in the dark, they abhor visibility.

Today’s Nomination in Norway of the “World Revelation Master” should give other Cockroaches even more pause to think.

The FACT that these Civil Servants have produced NO PROOF that they have thwarted ANY Terrorist Attack Against America should produce shame for them. Lacking integrity, these ‘Sociopaths on a Spurious Mission’ do not care one iota about Privacy Invasion of the World.

The Countries which have substantial Privacy Invasion Laws should consider legal action against these Rats for their Thieving Actions. Perhaps a few years in Prison would make them realize the errors of their Sociopathic Behaviors they Committed Against Everyone In The World.

What International Legal Authority did they have for committing these Invasions for Many Years?

Their Elected Political Bosses (who disclaim knowledge of the scope of the Crimes) are no better than these Civil Servant Cockroaches.

This situation should be declared to be “Legalized Organized Crime By International States.”

Chinese Drank 1.865 Billion Bottles (155 Million Nine-Liter Cases) of Red Wine in 2013

News Analysis:  Red, the Chinese Color of Prosperity, may have influenced Chinese Citizens to enjoy both the Taste as well as the Appearance of the Wines they consumed. Now that China consumes more Red Wine than even France or Italy, Vinologists are ‘Getting the Business Message’ and are working on new Varieties for Chinese Consumption.

The growing sophistication of Consumers allows Greater Sales of Foreign Wines into the Chinese Market.

The Chinese also have, beyond their Wonderful Culture, and Fine Intellect, a Social/Economic Advantage of “Numerical Scale” (not found elsewhere in the World).

Visitors Pay Good Money To Get The “Cold Treatment” In Iqaliut, Nunavut Territory, Canada

News Analysis: City Fathers of Iqaliut  have taken Pro-Active steps towards the World Aerospace Community to display their City (of 6,700+/- population) as being well situated for Cold Weather Testing of Aircraft. The immediate relatively flat terrain along the 2.7 km (1.67 mi) runway, an American Air Force Creation of 1942,  adds to the values Airframes consider for such testing. Additionally, ‘Creature Comforts” are well-developed in the City.

To Iqaliut’s credit it got its finances situated so it could present its assets around the globe.

These Creative Canadians are an Asset to their Wonderful Country.

The World Belongs To The Aggressive.

In African Tea Farming, Some Countries Have It Dry While Their Neighbors Have It Wet

News Analysis:  Mother Nature may appear to be “Fickle” as to where Rain will occur to benefit Tea Farmers and where She will withhold her Moisture. Presently, Kenya and Uganda are having dry weather while neighbors Malawi and Tanzania are enjoying wet weather.

The lessening of crop yields also affects the quality of the Tea. Presently, $1.90 per kilogram is the Auction Price whereas before it was $2.40 per kilogram.

The Good News for Kenyan and Ugandan Tea Farmers is: “Nothing is Constant but Change”. ‘If it is Dry Today, Tomorrow it may be Wet’ is the Farmer’s Mantra.

The Current trend in the Pacific Ocean today Appears to Be the “El Nino” Phenomena of warmer waters moving towards South America from Asia. If this continues, it will affect Global Weather. If so, perhaps the Tea Farmers of East Africa will all enjoy Mother Nature’s Moisture.

They Tell Them What They Want Them To Hear (Not What They Need To Know)

News Analysis: The Myopic Marketing Machinations regarding the use of Composite Materials for Aircraft Construction as touted by Airframes and their Mass Media Minions discuss weight reduction compared to Metal Aircraft. While there will be some weight savings between the materials, as well as some design allowances which are more difficult to achieve with Metals, there are some Key Drawbacks which are typically not discussed.

There are Three Main Problems with Composite Civil or Commercial Aircraft: De-lamination, Detonation, and Flammability.

De-lamination: Stress applied to Composite materials can, over time, make the Carbon/Carbon Textile Fabric  de-laminate from other conjoining Fabric. De-lamination makes the sturdiness of the Composites ‘disappear’ to the point of being as strong as a piece of soft fabric. As used in the structure of a fuselage or Wing Box, this could be Catastrophic in flight. It no longer has the strength of the fabricated “Vacuum Bagged and Autoclaved ” original structure.

Secondly, Long Term Exposure to Cosmic and Solar Radiation of a Composite Aircraft in High Altitude Flight will eventually weaken the adhesive thereby allowing Fabric De-lamination to occur.

Thirdly, allegedly, the U.S. B-2 Stealth Composite Bomber has had issues over its ‘brief’ life. The U.S. Air Force is presently seeking funding for a replacement of this Vaunted Aircraft. It is too expensive to maintain and has a shorter life expectancy than Metal Aircraft (is what has been reported in the media). The Leading Edges of the Wings need to be constantly examined for Surface Deterioration from  flying in the skies with particulates in the air.

The American led  Gulf War with Silica Sand particles in the air damaged the B-2’s in their flights from Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri, U.S.A., to Iraq and back. U.S. Air Force Line Maintenance Personnel were quite chagrined by this reality it has been widely reported. What can Airlines expect of this Composite Behavior in flight  that would be different from the U.S. Air Force experiences? The Commercial Airlines will not fly in the Middle East? Hardly.

Detonation: Composite Aircraft cannot land on Airport Runways if they have Landing Gear Failure for example, without detonating the Composites into many Shards (as in an Explosion). Like an Egg Shell that destructs when smashed against something, so too will the underside of a Composite Aircraft have those portions of itself thrown all over a runway. A Metal Aircraft “dents”; a Composite Aircraft “explodes”, in effect.

Flammability: Carbon/Carbon Fabric and Petrochemical Adhesives used to ‘Glue an aircraft together’ are Flammable. The recent Small Battery Episodes causing fire to the Composite Airliners, for which they were grounded for months is a good example of this FACTUAL INHERENT MATERIALS’ LIABILITY. A Small Battery caused extensive aft fuselage damage to an Ethiopian Airlines Aircraft at Heathrow Airport in England. It reportedly took TWO MONTHS for the Airframe to ‘Secretly Repair” the damage. In fact, allegedly NO data as to the Repair Process has been disseminated to the Public nor to other Airlines. Why is that? What does the Airframe NOT WANT potential Customers to know? people ask.

If an Engine Detonation were to occur in flight and hot pieces of the engine (much hotter than a little battery) were to strike the Wing or Fuselage, a fire would be possible. A defective Microwave Oven used in the Galley could overheat, creating a possible fire in the fuselage.

What if the Auxiliary Power Unit were to catch fire and one was flying in such a Composite Aircraft over the Pacific Ocean, far from any airport, at night with a storm occurring below?

Flying into a storm may be hazardous in such a scenario and the greater atmospheric pressure of lower altitude might expand the fire due to more oxygen being present; a possible scenario

METALS IN AIRCRAFT ARE NOT FUEL SOURCES FOR FIRE, Carbon/Carbon Fabrics and the Petrochemical Adhesives ARE; This is not Clever Marketing But Real-World Science.

The Specious Argument of “Weight Savings for Fuel Savings” has a nice sound to it, but ignores the Composite Aircraft Realities of De-lamination, Detonation, And Flammability.

One must ask: “Is Aircraft Safety More Important to Society than Some Fuel Savings to An Airline?”  The answer from Men of Good Conscience is “Safety Wins”; For those who choose Fuel Savings, let them enjoy their potential “Fires in the Sky”.

To those who only write about Composite Aircraft Weight Savings, one must ask: “What about Composites’ Liabilities?”

We tell it as We see it; We are beholden to No One.

Reality is the truth.
