— "Embroidery in childhood was a luxury of idleness. A coil of silken thread giving dreams of a silk and satin life. Now my broidery affords the clue whose meaning we avoid. My hand remembered its old skill - These stitches tell a curious tale. I remember that I was brooding on the fantasies of children and dreamt that, by only wishing, I could bring some silk into their lives.
Now my broidery affords the clue whose meaning we avoid."

" Is that you father? Do you remember the radient journey when you brought me here? "
" I remember only your mortal beauty! "
" Do you remember those hours of peace in the cool of the oasis? "
" Ah! I remember only the unslaked thirst that you alone can quench.. "
" And above all, do you remember your holy words that day when, through you, I learned about true love? "
" When I spoke I lied to you! "
" And now dawn is coming! "
" I lied to you! "
" Here are the roses of everlasting morning! "
" There is no heaven. Nothing is real but the love of human beings. I love you. "
" Heaven is opening! Here are the angels and the prophets..and the saints! They come smiling, their arms full of flowers! "
" Listen to me....My beloved... "
" Two white-winged seraphim are soaring in the blue, and as you said,the gentle consoler places his fingers of light upon my eyes, ah! wiping away my tears for ever "
" Come! you belong to me! O my Thaïs! I love you! I love you! I love you! Come! Thaïs, ah, come! Say: I shall live! I shall live! "
" The sound of golden harps delights me! Sweet perfumes surround me! I sense an exquisite blessedness. ah! ah! a blessedness that lulls all my ills to sleep! "
" O my Thaïs. you belong to me! Thaïs! Thaïs! I love you! Come! Thaïs, ah! come! come! "
" Ah! Heaven! I see......God! "

FRÜHLING " In darkening caverns, I dreamed long of your trees and azure breezes, of your scents and birdsong. How you lie revealed in glitter and array, bathed in light like a miracle before me You know me again. You invite me tenderly. Your blessed presence quivers through all my limbs. "
SEPTEMBER " The garden is in mourning.The rain falls coolly on the flowers. Summer shudders quietly to it's end. Leaf upon golden leaf is dropping down from the tall acacia tree. Summer smiles, amazed and exhausted, on the dying dream that was this garden. Long by the roses summer tarries, yearns for rest, slowly closes it's great weary eyes "
BEIM SCHLAFENGEHEN " The day has wearied me. I long for the the night to enfold me like a tired child. Hands stop all work. Head forgets all thoughts. All my senses long to sink into slumber. My spirit longs to soar, on free wings, into he magic of the night. "
IM ABENDROT "We have walked, hand in hand, through joy and pain. Now, we are resting from our travels in the quiet countryside. The valleys around us grow dark, only two larks still soar wistfully into the balmy sky. Let them fly about. Soon it will be time to sleep in solitude. O spacious, tranquil peace, so profound at twilight. How tired we are of travelling. Is this perchance death?

THE ANGEL " In early childhood, I often heard of angels. They would exchange the bliss of heaven...for the light of earth. I heard that when a sorrowing heart hides it's grief from the world... When it bleeds in silence, dissolving in tears... When it offers fervent prayers for deliverance...then an angel descends and raises it gently to heaven. Yes, an angel has come down to me. With shimmering wings it leads me far away from suffering. It bears my soul to heaven. "
  Kirsten Flagstad 1951

Do you not see it? How his heart swells with courage, gushing full and majestic in his breast? How in tender bliss sweet breath gently wafts from his lips - Friends! Look! Do you not feel and see it? Do I alone hear this melody so wondrously and gently sounding from within him, in bliss lamenting, all-expressing, gently reconciling, piercing me, soaring aloft, its sweet echoes resounding about me? Are they gentle aerial waves ringing out clearly, surging around me? Are they billows of blissful fragrance? As they seethe and roar about me, shall I breathe, shall I give ear? Shall I drink of them, plunge beneath them? Breathe my life away in sweet scents? In the heaving swell, in the resounding echoes, in the universal stream of the world-breath - to drown, to founder - unconscious - utmost rapture!"

INTERNET TECHNOLOGYS COMPARED

FTTP:- , Fiber To The Premises, BROADBAND. Speed 800Mbps to 1000Mbps download or upload. Optical Fibre is used. This is now available in many parts of the world. This was used in Australia until the, then PM, Tony Abbott Instructed Malcolm Turnbull to sabotage the NBN. Since then Australia has fallen well behind many other Countries. Jacinda Ardern may well say to Malcolm Turnbull :- "That's not a BROADBAND. This is a BROADBAND"

FTTN:- Fibre To The Node,
FTTK:- Fibre To The Kerb
Copper telephone line is used to complete the connection. Users become increasingly dissatisfied as they increase their usage of Netflix and IView
The bottleneck here is copper phone line. A typical speed is 20Mbps. There is no internet connection if the copper phone line is longer than 300 meters approx. Fiber is run only to a node at the top of the street or to the kerb at the front of the Premises.

HFC:- Hybrid Fibre Co-axial cable. A typical contract may offer speeds of "up to 100Mbps". A typical "CONTENTION RATIO " is 8. The download bandwidth is shared between 8 users. In this case a download speed of 100Mbps is only possible if none of the other seven users are using the shared channel. when all 8 users are downloading the speed drops to 12Mbps. Users become increasingly dissatisfied as they increase their usage of Netflix and IView

ADSL/ADSL 2+:- Asymmetric Digital Subscriber copper telephone Line. The bottleneck here is the copper phone line. A typical speed is 3Mbps
4G (Dongle or mobile) The bottleneck here is the the NARROWBAND mobile phone network. A typical speed is 15Mbps.
Data charges may be high

  GLOBAL WARMING EMERGENGY

What follows in red text is gleaned from information in the public domain referring to the catastrophic effects resulting from exceeding a two degree rise in average ocean temperature.
My reading of this is that if we are to avoid a catastrophy we must : -

(1) STOP BURNING COAL IMMEDIATLY

(2) ADOPT ZERO POPULATION GROWTH IMMEDIATLY

(3) IMMEDIATLY ADOPT KNOWN STRATEGIES TO ACHEIVE NEGATIVE CARBON GROWTH.

The overwhelming consensus amongst atmospheric Scientists is that ANY MORE THAN A TWO DEGREE RISE IN AVERAGE OCEAN TEMPERATURE will cause catastrophic damage to almost all ecosystems on our planet.

World-wide we are now generating 2.5 Tonnes of Carbon Dioxide Equivalent Greenhouse gas per person per year. The Carbon Dioxide level in the atmosphere has risen to 410 parts per million (ppm).

AUSTRALIA-WIDE WE ARE NOW GENERATING 23 TONNES PER PERSON PER YEAR.

IF,world-wide, we were able hold our carbon footprint CONSTANT FROM 2018 UNTILL 2050 THE TARGET 2 DEGREE RISE WILL NOT BE EXCEEDED. the "flywheel effect" will have run it's course.

ANY increase in Carbon Dioxide Equivalent Greenhouse gas average World-wide above 2.5 Tonnes BEFORE 2050 will result our planet hitting the target 2 degree rise BEFORE 2050 AND, BECAUSE OF "FLYWHEEL EFFECT", THE RISE WILL, IN TIME EXCEED 2 DEGREES.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT AN INCRESE IN CARBON DIOXIDE EQUIVALENT GREENHOUSE GAS AVERAGE WORLD-WIDE ABOVE 2.5 TONNES IN 2018 WILL RESULT IN A CATASTROPHIC RISE IN TEMPERATURE

IN ORDER TO PREVENT CATASTROPHIC DAMAGE TO OUR PLANET WE MUST ACHEIVE ZERO POPULATION GROWTH AND ALSO STRONGLY NEGATIVE CARBON GROWTH NOW

THE EXTREME INFLUENCE OF THE GROWTH LOBBY IN AMERICA, CHINA AND AUSTRALIA SHOULD NOT BE USED AS AN EXCUSE FOR DOING NOTHING.

WE SHOULD ASK OURSELVES WHAT WE WANT OUR GRANDCHILDREN TO BE FACING IN 2050

ELECTRICITY GENERATION PROVIDES AN EXCELLENT OPPORTUNITY TO ACHIEVE STRONGLY NEGATIVE CARBON GROWTH. NEEDLESS TO SAY WE MUST STOP BURNING COAL IMMEDIATLY.

The Australia-wide average of 23 Tonnes per year is so alarmingly high because we Australian travel great distances inside and outside our wonderful island/continent.

We Australians must greatly curtail this colossal use of fossil fuel. THAT IS POSSIBLE

we must urgently install Broadband for ALL AUSTRALIANS. This, so that we can Work, Shop, and Travel ( i.e. virtual Travel ) at home. IT IS NOW KNOWN THAT TOURISM IS RESPONSIBLE FOR EXCESSIVE GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS.

WE DO NOT WANT SHAM BROADBAND. WE WANT REAL BROADBAND. THAT IS ONLY POSSIBLE IF FIBRE TO THE PREMISES IS USED. ALL NEW ZEALANDERS HAVE FIBRE TO THE PREMISES. THEIR INTERNET ALWAYS GOES FASTER THAN 800Mega bits per second, UP AND DOWN

ALMOST ALL AUSTRALIANS DOWNLOAD MORE THAN ONE THOUSAND TIMES SLOWER THAN NEW ZEALANDERS. WE UPLOAD AT A SNAILS PACE.

THIS IS AN EMERGENGY. IF WE DO NOT ACT NOW, THE CATASTROPHY IS INEVITABLE

List with Serial comma :- $100, $90, $80, and $70
List without Serial comma :- $100, $90, $80 and $70
If offered one choice from each list,
I would choose $100 from the first list because $100 is more than any of the other three items
I would choose $80 and $70 from the second list because $150 is more than either of the other two items
From this second example it is clear that it is OK for a writer to NOT USE THE SERIAL COMMA IF THIS LATTER MEANING IS INTENDED

  SKEPTICISM   
QUESTIONING ALL CLAIMS
We all stand on the shoulders of giants. My understanding of what it is to be a Skeptic comes from :-

The written word of Charles Mackay in "Delusions and the Madness of Crowds" ( 1841 )

" In early childhood, I often heard of angels. They would exchange the bliss of heaven...for the light of earth. I heard that when a sorrowing heart hides it's grief from the world... When it bleeds in silence, dissolving in tears... When it offers fervent prayers for deliverance...then an angel descends and raises it gently to heaven. Yes, an angel has come down to me. With shimmering wings it leads me far away from suffering. It bears my soul to heaven. "

How his heart swells with courage, gushing full and majestic in his breast? How in tender bliss sweet breath gently wafts from his lips - Friends! Look! Do you not feel and see it? Do I alone hear this melody so wondrously and gently sounding from within him, in bliss lamenting, all-expressing, gently reconciling, piercing me, soaring aloft, its sweet echoes resounding about me? Are they gentle aerial waves ringing out clearly, surging around me? Are they billows of blissful fragrance? As they seethe and roar about me, shall I breathe, shall I give ear? Shall I drink of them, plunge beneath them? Breathe my life away in sweet scents?
