“.. 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. …”

Old Town festival offers visitors rare recipes

Mariani Dewi, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Fri, 11/07/2008 10:55 AM  

"Let your nose guide your way" is the method the city's tourism agency is using to gather a crowd at the Fatahillah Park in the Old Town area, West Jakarta, this weekend for the 2008 Old Town Tourism Attraction. 

Some 50 people, from amateur cooks to professional chefs, will cook up a storm in the food competition. They will have to cook as close to the original recipe as possible. 

"We want to remind people of how it used to be. These recipes have influenced Betawi food up until now," Arie Budiman, the head of the tourism agency, said Wednesday 

There are 10 recipes from local original dishes like besengek daging (meat dish) and sate tulang(satay), to bestek (beef steak) from the Netherlands and sukiyaki (soup) from Japan. 

To win, a dish will have to wow the taste buds of five judges. Visitors can try the dishes and, after the scoring is complete, take the meals home. 

It is the second time the annual event has been held. It will showcase local-made Batavia (old Jakarta) products that cannot be found in modern markets. 

There will art performances from local singers and dances, as well as traditional performances of three cultures that influenced Indonesian arts: the Portuguese keroncong tugu, Arabic zapin dance and gambus music, and Chinese lute music and dragon dance. 

Twenty antique cars will be on display. Among them are cars made in 1928. Visitors have the chance to ride around the square in a car made in the 1950s. The car cannot go further because of its old engine, which gets overheated easily. 

"We want to ignite a sense of nostalgia through all the senses -- through the sight of the old buildings and old cars, and the taste of traditional and increasingly rare foods," Tinia Budiarti, head of the Jakarta History Museum, said Tuesday. 

The museums, which are housed in Dutch colonial buildings, will be open over the weekend. 

The event will start Saturday, Nov. 8, with the cooking competition, while the musicians and dancers perform on stage. The day will end with a fireworks display at around 7:30 p.m. 

There will be more music and dance performances Sunday morning. The afternoon will be filled with prayers to celebrate National Heroes Day. 

Arie said he hoped visitors would learn about Jakarta's roots and the event would encourage the private sector to host events in the area. 

"We all know the Old Town is one of the city's famous landmarks, so we do not really need to develop it physically. But we need to develop the soul of the place and tell people its historical importance."
