  • 5/8/77 Have a Grateful Day!

    40 years ago this evening The Grateful Dead played Barton hall at Cornell University. This is considered one of their finest shows. The Scarlet Begonias / Fire On the Mountain are a fine example of the band hitting on all cylinders.

     

     

     

    Cornell 5/8/77 is a live album by American rock band the Grateful Dead. It was recorded on May 8, 1977, at Barton Hall, Cornell University, in Ithaca, New York. It was released as a three-disc CD album and as a five-disc vinyl album on May 5, 2017.[1][2][3][4]

    The same recording was also released on May 5, 2017, as part of the four-concert, eleven-CD box set May 1977: Get Shown the Light.[5][6]

    The May 8, 1977 show is a fan favorite, and is widely considered to be one of the band’s best performances.[7] Tickets to attend the general admission concert cost $7.50.[8] The soundboard recording was made by the Dead’s audio engineer Betty Cantor-Jackson. In 2012 it was selected for inclusion in the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress.[9][10]

    I have this show in several forms including a digital first generation Betty Board. I intend on getting the new vinyl as the Dead always do a Great job on these releases.

    Have a Grateful Day!

      Good Morning! I’d like to take a moment and ask for all of yinz’ help. CW did I use that correctly?
      My Very Special Lady Friend Liz lost her Passport some time ago. She shared that with me whe we went to Niagara Falls back in January. Without that, she isn’t able to leave Canada in her efforts to get back into the professional Geology field.
      So, I set this up last night. Liz doesn’t know I’m doing this for her. I hope yinz can help here out by contributing to Operation Ends Of The Earth Part 2! Just so you know, Part 1 is already in process, as I’m waiting for my Passport Upgrade to a full Book to be sent back to me. I want to be her Helper in her Life. Yes, I care about her THAT MUCH, and what better way to share this with her…to follow her To The Ends Of The Earth!
      All I can do here is ask for yinz’ help. Thank you very, very much!

      I’ve had the Passport Card for two years now, making the border crossings that way. The full Passport Book will allow me to fly anywhere in the world. Starting with flying from Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport to Thunder Bay, ON…Liz’s home town!
      She knows I want to visit there some day. Liz casually dropped the line “I guess you’re going to have to work on getting your Passport upgraded, y’know!”
      Yep.

      @ Twitchy
      Matthew Dowd is the smirking know it all on ABC who cross dresses as a Republican and supports all Democrat
      positions. To support single payer he opines that vets just love the VA medical system.
      The professional staff is great, but try to see them. Wait time is absurd and the support staff treats vets like useless
      vagrants with uber disrespect. They have job protection and would never cut it in private industry.
      And I am pretty sure that vets that died waiting to see a doctor would disagree with this fool.

      BREAKING: Exit Polls Indicate Macron Landslide…

      Voting in the French presidential runoff will end at 2pm ET, and we’ll know who won almost immediately.

      Center-left frontrunner Emmanuel Macron appears on course for a comfortable victory — exit polls showed him with 60-66% of the vote — but supporters of right-wing nationalist Marine Le Pen are holding out hopes of an upset.

      Can’t say that I’m surprised, but it’s still disappointing


    17. 17 | May 7, 2017 3:23 pm

      @ lobo91:
      Millions of ‘refugees’ will be flooding France. The number of rapes & assaults will skyrocket, especially against women who aren’t covered. Large areas will become ‘no go’ zones. And these ‘refugees’ will demand more & more free crap.

      Ze French have spoken mon amies. Marcon has won, and it will be business as usual. Business as usual is taking in hordes of Muslim “refugees” , more no go zones, more terrorism , rapes and mayhem, and above all more free stuff.
      Charles Martel never dreamt at the Battle of Tours that his countrymen would be such fools.

      @ doriangrey:

      I’m not sure that’s what they were thinking. Remember what Guggi said: even if Le Pen won, there is no way, given the make-up of their Parliament, that she could actually govern. It may be they were voting for some sort of structural calm that would allow for governing of some sort instead, hoping that time is on their side.

      I should add – if I understood Guggi correctly, Le Pen at the helm would have been like Trump but with an overwhelming majority of Dems in both houses and every level of the judiciary. Total gridlock.

      @ Aussie Infidel:

      not only that – I get a new picture and I’m SOOO much better looking these days. HA! Hi Aussie, how are your Chinese doing?

      You know what I figured out today? I think, anyway. That whole ‘sack of Rome by the Goths ‘thing actually started in China. The Hun moved west, having been driven away by the Han dynasty (who apparently were the builders of the Great Wall as part of their defense against the Hun). The Hun ran into the Goths in the Balkans and some of the Goth tribes fled south to what they hoped would be Roman protection. Didn’t quite work out that way, the Goths got pissed off and leveled the place. That’s a very long story short, the point being – Rome got screwed by the Han Dynasty. Did you see they just discovered a Chinese skeleton in some Roman ruins the other day?

      Le Pen will probably fail this time HOWEVER
      By the time the next elections roll around or if there is an assassination either Le Pen or more likely Marion Le Pen will sweep into power with a massive majority.

      It’s time to build power within the parliament to allow that future Presidency to enact the regulations that will change the face of France and Europe totally.

      Watching France24

      It looks like the supporters of the left candidate, Melenchon (sp?) did not vote at all

      At least some of the vote was against Le Pen and not for anybody (one woman called her ‘the eraser’)

      The die hard supporters of Macron are the young ones – who want to be ‘Europe’ which is all they’ve ever known. And they want change. Macron may have served during Hollande’s admin, but he was never OF it.

      Just anecdotal stuff, watching ‘man in the street’ interviews.

      A trial of 128 supermarkets with 4 containers of potato chips a month to begin with ;

      2 containers a month of food safe paper towels

      1 container a month of diapers

      3 containers a month various cleaning products

      So a 3-6 month trial of 10 containers a month.

      Better than pin money with the possibility (high probability for the chips) of scaling up from 128 supermarkets to 300 after 3-6 months and potentially to 2-3000 supermarkets next year.

      That’s serious money even if we are only making pennies per unit.

      It’s been a HARD slog so far.

      You have a worm farm? That is very cool. They only people I knew who had worms were bait people.

      The most interesting item on your list of containers – diapers. Disposable, I assume? Pre-sized for any given age?

      France: Emmanuel Macron, Useful Idiot of Islamism
      by Yves Mamou
      May 7, 2017 at 1:30 am
      https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/10310/emmanuel-macron-islamism

      Emmanuel Macron, a “Useful Infidel,” is not a supporter of terrorism or Islamism. It is worse: he does not even see the threat.

      Louizi’s article gave names and dates, explaining how Macron’s political movement has largely been infiltrated by Muslim Brotherhood militants.

      Is Macron an open promoter of Islamism in France? It is more politically correct to say that he is a “globalist” and an “open promoter of multiculturalism”. As such, he does not consider Islamism a national threat because the French nation, or, as he has said, French culture, does not really exist.

      During the cold war with the Soviet Union, they were called “Useful Idiots”. These people were not members of the Communist Party, but they worked for, spoke in favor of and supported the ideas of Lenin and Stalin. In the 21st century, Communism is finally dead but Islamism has grown and is replacing it as a global threat.

      Like Communism, Islamism — or Islamic totalitarianism — has been collecting its “Useful Infidels” the same way Communism collected its Useful Idiots. There is, however, an important difference: under the Soviet Union, Useful Idiots were intellectuals. Now, Useful Infidels are politicians, and one of them may be elected president of France today.

      Emmanuel Macron (Image source: European External Action Service)
      Emmanuel Macron, Useful Infidel, is not a supporter of terrorism or Islamism. It is worse: he does not even see the threat. In the wake of the gruesome attacks of November 13, 2015 in Paris, Macron said that French society must assume a “share of responsibility” in the “soil in which jihadism thrives.”

      “Someone, on the pretext that he has a beard or a name we could believe is Muslim, is four times less likely to have a job than another who is non-Muslim,” he added. Coming from the direction of the Syria and armed with a Kalashnikov and a belt of explosives would, according to him, be a gesture of spite from the long-term unemployed?

      Macron comes close to accusing the French of being racists and “Islamophobes”. “We have a share of responsibility,” he warned, “because this totalitarianism feeds on the mistrust that we have allowed to settle in society…. and if tomorrow we do not take care, it will divide them even more “.

      Consequently, Macron said, French society “must change and be more open.” More open to what? To Islam, of course.

      On April 20, 2017, after an Islamist terrorist killed one police officer and wounded two others in Paris, Macron said: “I am not going to invent an anti-terrorist program in one night”. After two years of continuous terrorist attacks on French territory, the presidential candidate said he had not taken the country’s security problems into account?

      Moreover, on April 6, during the presidential campaign, professor Barbara Lefebvre, who has authored books on Islamism, revealed to the audience of the France2 television program L’Emission Politique, the presence on Macron’s campaign team of Mohamed Saou. It was Saou, apparently, a departmental manager of Macron’s political movement, “En Marche” (“Forward”), who promoted on Twitter the classic Islamist statement: “I am not Charlie”.

      Sensing a potential scandal, Macron dismissed Saou, but on April 14, invited onto Beur FM, a Muslim French radio station, Macron was caught saying on a “hot mic” (believing himself off the air): “He [Saou] did a couple things a little bit radical. But anyway, Mohamed is a good guy, a very good guy”.

      “Very good”, presumably, because Mohamed Saou was working to rally Muslim voters to Macron.

      Is Saou an isolated case? Of course not. On April 28, Mohamed Louizi, author of the book Why I Quit Muslim Brotherhood, released a detailed article on Facebook that accused Macron of being a “hostage of the Islamist vote”. Republished by Dreuz, a Christian anti-Islamist website, Louizi’s article gave names and dates, explaining how Macron’s political movement has largely been infiltrated by Muslim Brotherhood militants. It will be interesting to see how many of them will be candidates in Macron’s movement in the next parliamentary elections.

      On April 24, the Union of Islamic Organisations of France (UOIF), generally known as the French representative of Muslim Brotherhood, publicly called on Muslims to “vote against the xenophobic, anti-Semitic and racist ideas of the National Front and [we] call to massively vote for Mr. Macron.”

      Why?

      Is Macron an open promoter of Islamism in France? It is more politically correct to say that he is a “globalist” and an “open promoter of multiculturalism”. As such, he apparently does not consider Islamism a national threat because, for him, the French nation, or, as he has said, French culture, does not really exist. Macron has, in fact, denied that France is a country with a specific culture, a specific history, and a specific literature or art. On February 22, visiting the French expatriates in London, Macron said: “French culture does not exist, there is a culture in France and it is diverse”. In other words, on French territory, French culture and French traditions have no prominence or importance over imported migrant cultures. The same day, in London, he repeated the offense: “French art? I never met it!”

      Conversely, in an interview with the anti-Islamist magazine, Causeur, he said: “France never was and never will be a multiculturalist country”.

      Because he is a politician, Macron is not addressing the French people as a whole. He is addressing different political customer bases. When visiting Algeria, Macron said that colonization was a “crime against humanity”. He evidently hoped this remark would help him to collect the votes of French citizens of Algerian origin. [NB Joe!! – private joke]

      During the presidential campaign, Macron was always saying to people what they wanted to hear. French people may well be on their way to discovering that for Macron, belonging to a homeland, thinking of borders and defining oneself as belonging to a mother language or a specific literature or art, is nothing more than junk.

      @ doriangrey:

      dorian have you heard anything about your trees dying?

      His initial estimate is that just one particularly dangerous menace — the polyphagous shot hole borer beetle — could kill as many as 27 million trees in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties, including parts of the desert.

      That’s roughly 38% of the 71 million trees in the 4,244 square mile urban region with a population of about 20 million people.

      And that insect is just one of the imminent threats.

      “Many of the trees we grow evolved in temperate climates and can’t tolerate the stress of drought, water restrictions, higher salinity levels in recycled water, wind and new pests that arrive almost daily via global trade and tourism, local transportation systems, nurseries and the movement of infected firewood,” he said.

      Please advise your friend to immediately inform the Canadian Ministry of Foreign Affairs as well as the Ministry of Internal Affairs (who actually handle the issue of Passports) of the loss. This is really serious as lost passports can be used by terrorists to gain entry to immigration systems.

      Canadian Passports DO NOT BELONG to the individual to which they are issued. They remain the property of the CANADIAN Government. Your friend MUST inform the Canadian government of her loss and arrange for a replacement passport to be issued. That’ll cost her a couple of hundred dollars but it HAS to be reported NOW!
      I’m really sorry Macker but this has all of the hallmarks of a scam about it. Either someone advising your friend or a group of scammers sound as if they are active. Collecting funds is totally unnecessary to get a replacement passport and most importantly have the currently issued passport CANCELLED before it can be used for nefarious purposes.

      Let me know how you fare.

      Ivanka Trump to Head Review of U.S. Role in Paris Climate Change Agreement

      The industry campaign to stick with the Paris accord comes amid deep divisions in the Trump administration over the carbon-cutting agreement,” Bloomberg reported last month. “Both the president’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, and her husband, Jared Kushner, a White House special adviser, have urged the president to stay in the deal, along with Tillerson.”

      “The decision to participate in next week’s U.N. climate talks shouldn’t be construed as a sign that Trump has decided to stay in the Paris pact,” a State Department official told the AP.

      “To the contrary, the U.S. will be sending a ‘much smaller’ delegation than it has in years past, the official said, adding that they weren’t authorized to discuss specifics and requested anonymity from the AP.

      Okay – it isn’t just ME apparently. I’m not a fan or either her OR her husband.

      That being said eagles – FINALLY, over the weekend, caught up with last Sunday’s episode of BILLIONS. OMG – you weren’t kidding. I had the pizza and Corona and it didn’t disappoint. Going to watch yesterday’s episode tonight (I’m off work tomorrow) and catch up completely – have you seen it yet? Friend texted me thus: “BILLIONS: OMG! OMG! OMG!!”

      I have a couple of real problems though with the “Gold Frog” episode, and I’m curious to see what you think (and if these are answered in the finale last night):

      1. From the get-go, this looks like entrapment. BUT FOR Chuck’s interference (and for personal reasons), Bobby would have been nowhere NEAR the whole ICE fiasco.

      2. So Chuck has completely LOST his trust fund and is, essentially, broke? Not to mention destroying Ira’s dreams of wealth. Oh and the other stockholders? The people in the dark in this? Yeah, I somehow don’t see the USA’s office escaping being a named defendant. Especially when it comes to light that Chuck’s WIFE had a short position.

      Am I an awful person for actually rooting for Axe in this series?

      And I just adore non-gender-specific Taylor. The completely calmness when dealing with the AUSA dickhead who tries to scare her is amazing. Behavior Dopey isn’t used to. While they’re all dancing on that report she signed on the car company prior to the stock sale, thinking that Axe used insider trading, if I recall correctly, Taylor told Bobby that the case could be made for the transaction based on the publicly available information.

      If anything, I’ve enjoyed the second season more than the first.

Who knows – those clowns in Sacramento just jacked up our gasoline tax another 12 cents and raised our registration fees on our cars by another $175,000,000.

      Wait’ll “single payer” California realized that the doctors in this state are going to retire, go into completely PRIVATE practice or form medical partnerships that preclude taking “Covered California.” Oh, and hey, it’s going to cover ILLEGALS too! Isn’t that great. Unless you make it part of the sales tax (which is already 10%), they’ll be getting themselves some spiffy FREE health care, since, contrary to the propaganda spouted by the libturds – they DO NOT PAY INCOME TAX.

      And two things really had me suspicious: (1) Axe seemed to OVER react to Wendy getting in on the short position on ICE. Axe supposedly believed that it was Daddy Rhodes that was on the hook – he had some idea that Chuck used the blind trust. (2) that Axe PERSONALLY visited all of the “wheel cogs” that put the contamination scheme together.

      Yup, been hearing about it literally for decades. Half of California’s legal residents come from the other 49 states. They move here and insist on keeping their environmental and weather notions from their home states. They insist on having beautiful green lawns and non native trees.

      This has been going on for over a century. Prionus californicus is native to the entire west coast from Alaska to California. The trees that are native to the west coast have defenses against Prionus californicus, its not a particularly significant danger to native species.

      However, as I said above, 53% of California’s legal residents are not native to California, and since the 1840 a very significant percent of these individuals have insisted on transplanting non native tree and shrubs species to California in an effort to make California more like where ever their homes were.

      These non native species of trees and shrubs have no defense against Prionus californicus. Worse yet, Prionus californicus considers a great many of these non native species to be a all you can eat buffet and smorgasbord.

      There is a great deal of truth to this article, but you really have to weigh the article on this one sentence. “Many of the trees we grow evolved in temperate climates and can’t tolerate the stress”. Translation: The non native species we introduced are at risk.

      He then goes on to inform you that basically he is attempting to generate interest in this phenomena by fear mongering and hyperbole when he says, “and new pests that arrive almost daily via global trade and tourism“. The polyphagous shot hole borer beetle (Fusarium euwallacea) is native to Vietnam, and only effects about 8% of the tree’s in California. Over 200 tree species native to the west coast are actually immune to it.

      So, again what this comes down to is we are talking about people who upset the natural ecosystem and are now worried about the new hybrid ecosystem that they created. There are only about 10 native species of trees in California that are susceptible to Fusarium euwallacea.

      The biggest problem here isn’t that Fusarium euwallacea can’t be controlled, it can, the problem is, ignorance. The majority of that ignorance is arrogantly self inflicted ignorance.

      If you insist on living in California, then you just ought to learn what the California native ecosystem really is and quit trying to turn it into Ohio, or Pennsylvania or Michigan or Wisconsin or whatever state it is that you were born in.

      If you can’t live without the flora and fauna of your childhood home, then you should move back to wherever it was you grew up instead of creating an ecological disaster here by trying to transform California into wherever it was you grew up.

      The issue here is actually rather disturbing and complex. CNC automation in manufacturing and AI are literally reaching the point where 80% of all currently existing human forms of employment are threatened. There exist today machines that can replace 8 out of 10 human jobs.

      Machines do not have to be paid, they don’t take sick days, they never demand higher pay or go on strike and they are far far less prone to making mistakes. About the only things they can’t do yet, is design or repair themselves. In a highly competitive business environment, you need to cut overhead and operating costs. Human employees are at the very top of the list of expendable cost liabilities.

      So, now that you have eliminated 80% of the human workforce… How do you keep those highly unpredictable humans from rioting and burning your business to the ground?

      You either kill them, or you pacify them. “Guaranteed Universal Income” is considered the path of least resistance in the pacification of those pesky humans that have become obsolete, redundant and annoying.

      Like I said, its nothing new here. California’s natural ecosystem had a way of dealing with stuff like this. But retards intervened. Once upon a time the lack of water and regular wildfires kept invasive species in check.

      But now, with 39 million people living here, we can’t let the wildfires burn, and the Marxist brain dread Eco-warrior’s won’t allow proper brush clearance, so, we are temporarily caught in a Catch-22 situation.

      Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) told Al Jazeera that California is the model to “transform” the Democratic Party. From NTK Network:

      Sanders pointed out that in California, “progressives are gradually taking over the Democratic Party.” He says that that is what he is trying to do now, by working with the Democratic Party. Sanders admitted that he might not succeed if the resistance to progressive ideals is too strong within the party, but he feels it’s the best chance right now that he has to save the planet.

      i hope you’re very very successful

      Ah, but you see my dear, drinking is a skill. Some people learn how and party like Rock Star’s, others Party like Rock Star’s and it kills them.

      Please allow me to outline the rules for successfully partying like a Rock Star without it killing you.

      1) Never drink on a full stomach, everything in your stomach will come up.

      2) Never drink on an empty stomach, you will wish there was something to come up.

      3) Do not drink more than 2oz of pure alcohol per hour that’s the absolute fastest your body can metabolize it. (That’s 4 Corona’s per hour, or roughly 3 shots of your favorite 80 proof liquor)

      4) For every oz of alcohol you drink, you need to drink 4 oz of pure water. (pure water means water with absolutely nothing else in it)

      5) The very last drink you have before going to bed should always be 8 oz of pure water chased by 4 regular strength aspirin.

      These are actually pretty simple rules to follow, until you ignore rule number 3, then things get pretty dicey (remembering and abiding by rule 4 will help).

      Rule 5 will cure a multitude of sins.

      Hangovers are caused by a combination of dehydration and vascular constriction in the brain. The water before you go to bed will prevent the dehydration and the aspirin will reduce vascular constriction in your brain.

      @ doriangrey:

      coldwarrior’s dad (who genuinely happens to be a brilliant guy) was once pondering why so many professional musicians end up alcoholics and or drug addicts. So, coldwarriors asked me in passing (I don’t think he actually expected me to have an answer) why this was so, more or less echoing his dad’s question.

      So, I explained it to him. Unlike the vast majority of people I have met in my life, cold’s dad grasped the explanation before cold had even finished giving my answer to him.

      In a nutshell, it is this.

      Imagine that your job involves you going someplace 5 night a week, where everyone you meet, and you meet thousands of people a night, insists on buying you a drink, and DRINKING it with you.

      With the exception of the most ardent concert goers, most people only go to at most a show or 2 a month. Not a show 5 nights a week.

      Imagine that part of your job, where everyone you meet wants to drink with you, involves making super nice with hundreds of people who will be insulted if you do not have a drink with them. And that their being insulted could very well cost you between ten of thousands and hundreds of thousands of dollars.

      Imagine that this happens everywhere you go, 5 nights a week. Imagine that dozens of these people even follow you back to your hotel room every night and it takes you hours to get rid of them without it costing you tens of thousands of dollars doing so.

      If you can keep your alcohol consumption to 1 oz per hour while remembering to drink 4 oz of water in that same time, your liver will be just fine. Just don’t try to do 1 oz per hour 12 hours a day 7 days a week.

      You can literally drink 2 pints of beer (or 2 glasses of wine) every single day of your life and it will not harm your liver in the slightest.

      @ doriangrey:

      It may come as a surprise to some, but, the human body generates roughly 1 oz of alcohol every day.

      Endogenous ethanol production is the term for alcohol produced naturally within the body. Depending on the diet and other factors, up to about one ounce of pure alcohol can be produced within the body each day. That amount equals almost two standard drinks of beer, wine or liquor.

      Actually, I know about consuming great quanitiy of water and a tylenol before going to sleep after drinking. Dr. Cousin also advised that you should down about 8 oz. of ORANGE juice – the real thing – if you have it as the Vitamin C aids in the liver’s ability to process.

      Eagles – you know what I wish existed? A Netflix or Hulu type channel that was nothing but GOOD classic movies. There’s Turner Classic Movies, which is a nice commercial free channel, but man, you have to wade through some waiting for them to show a good one.

      Funny thing about that, being that 53% of “Californian’s” are from the other 49 states is, that that is precisely why California is so fucked up now, because they already had those stupid ass idea’s and brought them here.

      But in typical imbecilic fashion, when their ideas produce disastrous results here, instead of leaving those ideas here and getting new ideas that don’t fuck everything up, they take those fucked up ideas with them and repeat the cycle over and over again.

      At those speeds, events that take place in as little as 0.2 trillionths of a second can be documented and studied at a speed that humans can comprehend. To help demonstrate just how fast that really is, the researchers used the new camera to film a group of photons traveling about as far as a piece of paper is thick, making it seem as if the light particles were barely moving, instead of racing past at 671 million miles per hour.

      Doesn’t solve that problem. This is a velocity issue, not one of relative sizes. Which is not to say that this isn’t really cool. The problem I posited was one of using something the size of a medicine ball to measure/image an object the size of a bb.

      This IS NOT money to do NOTHING. This is money to very specifically not do SOMETHING. This is something known as the “Guaranteed Universal Income“, this is your “Do not riot and overthrow the Government” money.

      The issue here is actually rather disturbing and complex. CNC automation in manufacturing and AI are literally reaching the point where 80% of all currently existing human forms of employment are threatened. There exist today machines that can replace 8 out of 10 human jobs.

      Machines do not have to be paid, they don’t take sick days, they never demand higher pay or go on strike and they are far far less prone to making mistakes. About the only things they can’t do yet, is design or repair themselves. In a highly competitive business environment, you need to cut overhead and operating costs.

      The GUI is coming to a nation State near you soon. Actually it’s the GUI linked to the UEP (universal entertainment payment) or even the DBA (Don’t breed anymore) subsidy. The plan is, and I’m not kidding folks, is to provide addictive entertainment that precludes most breeding and soaks up time otherwise spent rioting and burning stuff down. Don’t forget that India and China are only 1 generation behind Europe in depopulating (due to skewed one child and abortion aided gender selection policies), with SE Asia and South America just 1 1/2 generations behind and Africa no more than 2 generations behind.

      No more denial folks . This is the 3:15 express coming fast. As far as automation is concerned I can’t whole agree. Machines need major capital expense establishing them. They need regular servicing & maintenance and although they do not have to be paid, don’t take sick days, never demand higher pay or go on strike and are far far less prone to making mistakes, AI, CNC, 3D printing, and machine aided fabrication, need replacing and designing with all that goes with that. Sure 70-80% of human jobs can be done by machines, including service industries as well but there will be a load of new jobs that people can undertake. Actually human input will be the new form of high value product placement.

      during the population ‘hump’ the required jobs will vastly outstrip human workers. China is already suffering a shortage of human staff at a rate of 5 million a year, slowed only by the growth of automation.

      The trick is getting the Yin & Yang of human input aligned with the growth on automation. Smaller populated nation Stats will have a less complex scheduling problem to overcome. If a company produces high value guaranteed healthy non destructive products they can reliably ask a higher premium and keep the balancing trick …. balanced. The larger and more complex the nation State’s society the harder the balance becomes and the more prone to violent uprisings… and burning stuff.

      That’s pretty much the backstory in Christopher Nuttall’s sci fi series The Emperor’s Corps. During the first book in the series, Earth is destroyed by a cataclysmic collapse of the massive system of orbital habitats that had been circling the planet, which was where most of the industry was (and where the elites lived). Pretty much everyone who lived on the surface was a useless drone, who lived in these massive apartment blocks, were fed algae-based rations, and spent all their time watching inane entertainment on TV.

      The only people from the surface who had a chance to make anything of their lives were those who joined the Imperial Marines (the subject of the books) or those who were able to move to colony worlds.

      Doesn’t solve that problem. This is a velocity issue, not one of relative sizes. Which is not to say that this isn’t really cool. The problem I posited was one of using something the size of a medicine ball to measure/image an object the size of a bb.

      Relativisticly speaking, (the photon), what we are using to do the measuring/imaging is the size of a medicine ball, compared to the object we are trying to measure/image, (a neutrino) which is the size of a bb.

      Just use a shorter wavelength.

      Like the electron microscope

      Relativistically speaking it’s not about size anyway, but gravity wave field dynamics

      Quantum Gravity Fields … ROCKZ !

      We are already using the shortest wavelength currently available (1×10-13 m) What Electron Force Microscopes use. Quantum Gravitational Waves, are about size. Disruptions in the Higg’s field are directly proportional to the mass of the object disrupting the local Higg’s field.

      Wave propagation is the square inverse of the Ricci Tensor divided by PiR2*dt/at over x (that somewhere in the general neighborhood of 1×10-24 m). Here is where the problem arises. Gravitational Waves, are currently measured at 1×10-6 m degrees of deflection of photons over miles.

      Electrons do not (as far as we know or can prove) directly interact with Gravitons. Vibrations of the Higg’s field do not produce corresponding vibrations in any known electromagnetic field. This means that the only currently known method of detecting a Gravitational Wave is through the F*dt/dx over hbar derivative of the waves sin causing photon deflection. (it also suggests that the frequency of gravitational waves might be in the light years.)

      Which means…. Based on our current understanding of Quantum Gravitational Field Theory, we can’t use gravitational waves to image anything.

      @ Aussie Infidel:
      I expect rape & molestation to go through the roof as these ‘refugees’ are welcomed with open arms. And wallets. We’ll see larger areas of Paris turned in to ‘no go’ zones. As Muslims get elected to office, there will be a push for bans on alcohol, including wine. Certain parts of the city will have Sharia law imposed, dogs will be banned (or killed). The famous nude beaches will have zealots running around throwing acid on unclad women.

      So long, Paris! Au Revoir France! Other parts of Europe will follow, or even lead.

      1 Hertz = 186282.3 mile wave length. That’s the distance from sin-wave peak to sin-wave trough. Gravitational waves have a frequency of around 1×10−21 hertz (aka 1 zeta-hertz). So, yea, that puts their wave length in light-years.

      @ doriangrey:

      This is what makes detecting gravitational waves so damned difficult, they literally take years for the wave to pass from peak to trough.

      Yes I get the wavelength but you specifically suggested that the frequency is measured in Light-years and you know that that is bullshit as well as me.

      velocity = wavelength * frequency

Which I THOUGHT I recalled was verboten in one of the numerous treaties that has defined the EU, but it’s been awhile since I read that stuff.

      Anyhoo, Germany DESTROYS new French leader’s Eurobond debt plan
