“.. 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. …”

More low-cost housing planned

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

The government is currently drawing up plans to provide more of the country's low-income families with affordable housing.

The new scheme will enable low-income families to obtain low-cost apartments, with down payments and interest on loans to be partly paid by the government.

"The scheme is being developed to help people who would otherwise have problems paying the down payment on a house," Tito Murbaintoro, the assistant to the deputy public housing minister for housing financing, told Antara on Tuesday.

The government will cover down payments, ranging from between Rp 5 and 7 million (US$530 and $745), depending on each family's financial situation.

As part of the scheme, the government will also cover interest payments of between 7 and 9.5 percent for the first four to eight years.

A 2007 public housing ministerial decree stipulates the subsidy amount to be paid to each family in accordance with their household income.

A person with a monthly income of between Rp 3.5 to Rp 4.5 million will receive a subsidy of Rp 5 million for the down payment on a house, while those earning Rp 2.5 to Rp 3.5 million per month will receive Rp 6 million. Those who earn between Rp 1.2 and Rp 2.5 million per month will receive Rp 7 million under the scheme.

Tito said the proposed scheme, which is currently being discussed with the Finance Ministry, was expected to be implemented next year in line with the government's vision to provide affordable housing to low-income families.

Potential buyers will be encouraged to rent their apartments first before applying for ownership.

"They will be allowed to rent the apartments for up to five years. Then they will be expected to buy them through credit facilities provided," Tito said.

The government's renewed commitment to providing affordable housing for low-income families was announced by Vice President Jusuf Kalla last month.

"The government will not suffer losses by providing these subsidies. The more we develop houses, the more the national economy will grow and the more income tax the nation will receive," he said.

The government has allocated Rp 800 billion for low-cost housing in the 2008 budget, a 160 percent increase from 2007's figure of Rp 300 billion.

The subsidies in 2008 are designed to help low-income families purchase either low-cost apartments or modest houses.
