Arm them against brainwash and manipulative sales. End (debt) slavery and poverty. End homelessness near empty houses (whomever accepted this idea, houses rotting away, with people living on the streets needing one?). People who do have a choice, will not stay working in meaningless jobs or unhealthy conditions. For instance with basic income all work has to be designed to have meaning and be pleasurable. It would change the face of human society. Make cities green and self sustaining. France recently made it law to use every flat rood for either plants or solar panels. Good idea. More green in cities will clean the air, provide more food, reduce global warming, bring back bees, etc. There’s no reasons not to do it, but the trouble or fallen leaves and increase of insects. Hey it’s nature. Nature is life. Embrace it. Develop economical systems that wont stop people from working on essential things, when the money system breaks down.

For Inonge Imutowana, buying food for her family of six is becoming increasingly costly. On the outskirts of the capital, a 25-kilo bag of staple mealie meal that cost 65 kwacha a year ago now is selling for 140 kwacha ($14). Across Zambia, drought that swept across the region last year, leading to widespread crop failure, has sent cereal prices soaring. The high cost of buying food has persuaded a share of small-scale farmers to hang onto their maize, rice and cassava harvests and mill them for their own household use and for their livestock, rather than selling the grain into the market. But a combination of higher fuel prices and unstable electrical supplies - both the result of lack of rainfall hitting hydropower - mean many small grain mills are charging higher prices for milling, or don't have sufficient capacity. But Zambia's government hopes it has an answer: Since 2015 it has been installing hundreds of small solar-powered mills in rural areas as a way to help hold down the price of producing food.

While it started with animal fat for candles, wind for milling grain, and forests for building civilizations , it moved on to coal and steam during the industrial revolution and has ended up in a huge interconnected network of power lines connected to nuclear, natural gas, coal, solar, and wind sites around the world. Regardless of the energy source, though, there's one reason that we settled on using electricity as the medium for transporting energy: it's the easiest way we've found to move it from place to place. Origins of the Commercial Grid Although the potential to use electricity as an energy delivery method was recognized fairly early it wasn't until Thomas Edison came along that the first practical and commercial electrical grid was implemented. His first grid supplied power to a handful of electric lights in New York using a direct current (DC) generator.

Less go to Cardiff. The effect on the economy is something that is also creating quite a vicious rows there. We have always been discussing that here. The First Minister has always said that he wanted access to the single market.

Germany's transition to renewable energies like wind and solar has created more than 350,000 jobs in Germany, especially in rural areas. There are great opportunities in this sector. Germany currently holds the presidency of the Group of 20 world's leading industrialized and emerging economies. This gives us, the US and Germany, the opportunity to shape the future of the world economy together. It should be Europe and the US that shape the norms and standards of this globalized world. Anything that obstructs free trade and investment across the Atlantic hurts jobs in the US and in Europe. There are compelling reasons why Europe, and Germany in particular, and the United States have been such close allies over time. Our global interests are aligned: democracy, stability, prosperity, and the rule of law. Together, we are fighting radicalism and terrorism.

So why did space agencies abandon the moon? Why don't astronauts walk on the moon anymore? The cost and danger of sending humans into space, combined with huge leaps in technology that enable us to see further than any human astronaut could hope to travel, has made returning to the moon a low priority for Nasa. Space agencies have instead opted for the lightest, leanest possible crafts to travel ever-further into space, where they can send back images and information from areas of the universe far beyond the limits incumbent on a manned mission. It has led to the discovery of hundreds of new worlds beyond our own solar system. In fact, until recently, the focus had evolved so far from manned missions that Nasa lacked the technology to launch one. In 2009, scientist Jeff Hanley told Space magazine : "The amount of rocket energy it takes to accelerate those kinds of payloads away from Earth doesn't exist anymore.

The transitional relief scheme will support businesses which have an increase in business rates bills and of course businesses with solar panels will also benefit from these £6.7 billion package to reduce business rates, the biggest ever.

When this 4th Quarter phase of the lunar cycle is completed, we will experience a New Moon in Aquarius on January 27. That New Moon in Aquarius will show us the first winds blowing in from the coming eclipses in February. So we can consider Eclipse Season beginning on January 27, setting us up for the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo on February 10 and the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on February 26. Much will be shaken up during this coming Eclipse Season. Change and transformation will be pushing through the blocks and impediments in our consciousness and belief systems. This force will crack open what is stuck, so we can change our lives according to our Soul’s intentions. In the greater world, the new Trump administration will experience during Eclipse Season its first great challenges to what it intends to do. And each of us will need to adjust to this New Chapter in our personal and global lives.
