“.. Nuclear Power Revealed

So let me tell you what else they did. They just showed you what's wrong with nuclear power. "Safe to the maximum," they said. "Our devices are strong and cannot fail." But they did. They are no match for Gaia.

It seems that for more than 20 years, every single time we sit in the chair and speak of electric power, we tell you that hundreds of thousands of tons of push/pull energy on a regular schedule is available to you. It is moon-driven, forever. It can make all of the electricity for all of the cities on your planet, no matter how much you use. There's no environmental impact at all. Use the power of the tides, the oceans, the waves in clever ways. Use them in a bigger way than any designer has ever put together yet, to power your cities. The largest cities on your planet are on the coasts, and that's where the power source is. Hydro is the answer. It's not dangerous. You've ignored it because it seems harder to engineer and it's not in a controlled environment. Yet, you've chosen to build one of the most complex and dangerous steam engines on Earth - nuclear power.

We also have indicated that all you have to do is dig down deep enough and the planet will give you heat. It's right below the surface, not too far away all the time. You'll have a Gaia steam engine that way, too. There's no danger at all and you don't have to dig that far. All you have to do is heat fluid, and there are some fluids that boil far faster than water. So we say it again and again. Maybe this will show you what's wrong with what you've been doing, and this will turn the attitudes of your science to create something so beautiful and so powerful for your grandchildren. Why do you think you were given the moon? Now you know.

This benevolent Universe gave you an astral body that allows the waters in your ocean to push and pull and push on the most regular schedule of anything you know of. Yet there you sit enjoying just looking at it instead of using it. It could be enormous, free energy forever, ready to be converted when you design the methods of capturing it. It's time. …”

Builder, government offer subsidized homes

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

Developer PT Perdana Gapuraprima launched the sale Monday of apartments in two towers to be built in Kebagusan, South Jakarta, 30 percent of which will be eligible for government subsidies under the housing-for-the-poor scheme.

"There are a range of prices, starting at Rp 96 million (US$10,322)," said president director Rudy Margono, adding that some of the apartments cost more than Rp 300 million.

Thirty percent of the apartments in each tower are priced at less than Rp 144, with eligible buyers entitled to receive a down-payment grant of up to Rp 7 million from the government and an interest subsidy of up to 5 percent on installments, said Public Housing Minister Muhammad Yusuf Asy'ari during a press conference.

"The subsidy scheme is only applicable to people in the middle and lower-income brackets," said Asy'ari, referring to the relevant government regulation, which was issued in April 2007.

Under the regulation, the government provides financial help to purchasers of low-cost apartments in a bid to encourage developers to build a total of 1,000 apartment towers for middle and low-income buyers. The government has allocated Rp 50 trillion (around US$5.4 billion) to finance the three-year scheme.

According to Asy'ari, there are three groups of potential purchasers who are eligible for assistance. The first consists of those with monthly salaries of between Rp 3.5 and Rp 4.5 million, the second, those with monthly salaries of between Rp 2.5 and Rp 3.5 million, and the third, those with salaries of Rp 1.2 to Rp 2.5 million.

Members of the first group who purchase apartments costing Rp 144 million will receive a grant of Rp 5 million for the down payment, and a subsidy of 2.5 percent on the cost of installment interest over four years.

"The buyers are not allowed to resell the subsidized apartments for profit," said Asy'ari, adding that the government was still working on a monitoring mechanism.

The new apartment development, called Kebagusan City, which is located on Jl. Baung, Kebagusan Raya, South Jakarta, marks the second stage of the 1,000 low-cost apartment tower project being promoted by the government, following the sale of apartments located in 52 towers during the first-phase earlier this year.

The construction of the two new towers, which will contain some 1,600 apartments, will start next month and is due for completion by the end of 2008.

"Besides these two towers, we will build 15 others over the next five years", said Perdana Gapuraprima corporate finance director Arvin F. Iskandar. (JP/ind)
