“.. 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. …”

Government mulls allowing expatriates to own houses


Green housing: President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono plants a Sawo Kecik tree Tuesday at a park in the Graha Indah housing complex in Tambakrigading village, Tikung district, Lamongan, East Java. First Lady Ani Yudhoyono, several ministers and the Indonesian Military and National Police chiefs were also invited to plant various trees, after the President inaugurated the opening of some 114,000 units of healthy simple houses (RSH) in the area.

Expatriates, investors in particular, living in Indonesia will no longer have to spend much money to rent luxury residences in the country. 

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said Tuesday he would ask the National Land Agency (BPN), the home minister and the state minister for people's housing affairs to conduct an in-depth study into granting expats home ownership rights. 

"The government has no objection to this, provided it will benefit the people and make the country's climate more conducive to foreign investment," Yudhoyono said at the launch of 114,000 units of healthy simple houses (RSH) in Lamongan, East Java. 

The event also featured a dialogue with housing developers and homeowners, in which the Indonesian Real Estate Association (REI) raised the issue of home ownership for expatriates. 

Currently, expats in Indonesia are not allowed to own homes. 

A 1996 government regulation states they may only have house utility rights for 20 years, which may be extended for another 20 and 25 years consecutively. 

REI chairman Teguh Satria called on the government to revise the regulation to grant expatriates a 70-year home ownership right, in an effort to make the country more competitive and conducive to foreign investment. 

"This way, Indonesia will be able to compete with Singapore," he said. 

"If the government regulation is revised to allow expats to own homes, the prices of our apartments and other properties will rise sharply," he said. 

"Thus many foreign investors will not be interested in luxury residences and apartments, because they have the right to only use them for 20 years, and afterward they have to resell them or return them to the government." 

The REI also lauded the government's attention to its program to develop affordable homes for low-income people, in the hope the government would continue granting subsidies for the project. 

"SBY is the only president who has officiated three housing complexes built under the 100,000-house program, and we expect him to continue supporting the program in the coming years," Teguh said. 

Regarding on the housing subsidy, the President pointed out the government's limited capability and said it had allocated Rp 2.5 trillion in subsidies to develop affordable houses for low-ranking civil servants, servicemen and police personnel this year, with bigger amounts of the state budget allocated for the development of education, health and infrastructure projects. 

Yudhoyono also asked Indonesian Military chief Gen. Djoko Santoso and National Police chief Gen. Bambang Hendarso, both present at Tuesday's event, to raise housing deposits for servicemen, because the monthly wages of low-ranking soldiers and police personnel had increased more than twofold to Rp 1.7 million from Rp 700,000. 

During the ceremony, the President also witnessed the handover by state insurance company PT Jamsostek of Rp 174.7 billion in housing loan assistance for 25,000 workers in East Java through state-owned Bank Tabungan Negara (BTN).
