“.. 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. …”

West Jakarta wants to lead Old Town rejuvenation

Prodita Sabarini, THE JAKARTA POST, JAKARTA | Mon, 02/23/2009 11:36 AM 


West Jakarta Mayor Djoko Ramadhan said Saturday he wanted his office to lead the rejuvenation of Jakarta’s Old Town because it fell within his municipality.


Ramadhan, after meeting with Old Town stakeholders at the  Mandiri Museum, said he agreed with the idea of the city having sole authority over the management of the area, but added his office should be in charge.


“The governor said to me when I took up office to take care of the Old Town,” he said.


The area’s revitalization is on the city’s “dedicated program” list, meaning it is a priority for the city administration. The cultural and tourism agency has been put in charge of the project.


The Old Town area is a heritage area because it contains several old buildings, including the former Dutch Batavia Town Hall, now the Jakarta History Museum, in the heart of the area. It spans 1.3 square kilometers, straddling both North and West Jakarta.


In 2007, as part of the Old Town revitalization plan, a pedestrian area began to be built on Jl. Pintu Besar Utara in Central Jakarta.


“There has yet to be an integrated coordination for the Old Town,” Djoko said, adding he hoped to revitalize the area starting this year, and had met with stakeholders to discuss problems in the area, prior to proposing his plans to Jakarta Governor Fauzi Bowo.


To revitalize the area, Djoko asked property owners to revamp the pedestrian arcade on Jl. Pintu Besar Selatan and Jl. Pintu Kecil.


Yusmada Faizal, head of the West Jakarta Public Works traffic division, said many property owners used the pedestrian arcade in front of their buildings for private use, with some even building gates or using the arcade as a parking spots.


He added property owners should agree to refurbish the arcade and provide the space for pedestrians.


“The Old Town can have the same atmosphere as places such as Braga in Bandung and Malioboro in Yogyakarta,” he said.


Djoko said the city would provide the design, while property owners should share the cost with the government for the construction.


None of the property owners from Jl. Pintu Besar Selatan and Jl. Pintu Kecil were present at Saturday’s meeting, but Djoko said he would meet with them next week.


As part of the rejuvenation plan, Djoko also proposed rearranging the traffic flow in the area, especially around Jakarta Kota Station and the Transjakarta busway shelter.


He said traffic should flow such that the Old Town became a destination rather than a transit point.


Muh. Fausal Kahar from the West Jakarta City Planning Agency said traffic around Kota Station was always packed. Despite the large numbers of people in the area, a lot of buildings remained desolate and abandoned, proof that people did not view the area as a destination.


“The only way to liven up the area is first by solving the traffic problems and making way for pedestrians. Also, abandoned buildings, some of them owned by state companies, should be revamped,” he said.


Candrian Attahiyat, head of heritage sites at the Jakarta Culture and Museum Agency, said there were 29 abandoned buildings in the Old Town, seven of which were severely damaged and could collapse if no immediate measures were taken.


One business owner said at the meeting that the abandoned buildings were also an entry point for criminals breaking into neighboring properties.


“In a year, we get three to four break-ins. The burglars come in through the empty buildings,” he said.
