“.. 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. …”

Global recession overshadows property market

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Mon, 11/10/2008 11:13 AM 


Indonesia's property sector is already feeling the pinch from the global economic downturn as demand is slowing at a time when interest rate adjustments have become a necessity for developers to keep business going, a property consultant says.


PT Colliers International Indonesia said over the weekend in its latest survey that the slowdown had already been evident since the end of the third quarter, in particular in Jakarta and surrounding areas, hat it continues to be felt in the fourth quarter and most likely will continue to impact into next year.


Bank Indonesia's benchmark interest rate currently stands at 9.5 percent, with cumulative inflation already hitting double digits in the first ten months of the year.


Colliers' report comes just days after a similar survey by another property consultant, PT Procon Indah, which focused on the Greater Jakarta market and said that the industry is heading for a slowdown due to increases in interest rates and the effects of inflation on prices of materials and rental costs.


Colliers said the industrial sector in the Greater Jakarta area, for example, had already experienced lower transaction levels in the third quarter compared to the previous quarter as export-oriented companies cut back on their investment plans amid slowing demand.


Average rental rates in central business districts (CBD) rose in the same period slightly from Rp 87,268 per square meter per month to Rp 88,117 per square meter.


The total supply for CBD office stock is now reported to be 3.9 million square meters, up from 3.71 million square meters last quarter, while occupancy rates decreased slightly down to 88.76 percent from 89.62 percent previously.


Supply for strata title apartments grew by 3 percent in the second quarter and 0.91 percent in quarter three. On the demand side however, out of 77,277 apartment units under construction, only 65 percent were already taken up and net absorption for apartments in the third quarter reached 459 units, declining from 551 in quarter two.


"With the current total units being built equivalent to about half of the total existing units and anticipating additional supply from new projects over the next two years, the apartment market will be very tough in the future," the survey says.


The occupancy rate for retail space is expected to decline in the fourth quarter, with shopping centers adjusting their rental rates to meet market conditions.


Still, retail space supply is set to increase from 3.21 million square meters in 2007 to 3.31 million square meters.


Meanwhile, the hotel occupancy rate nation-wide increased by 0.82 percent from the second quarter, with the five-star category dominating the market at 47.5 percent.


The survey reports that in the last quarter of the year hotel occupancy rates in Bali will fare better than most cities in the country -- including Jakarta and Surabaya -- due to the large local tourist potential. (dis)
