Playing with starship concepts during lunch. I was going to design a freighter. One really along the size of a freighter not like the Falcon or the Firefly. The cargo capacity of those ships is more like a 18 wheeler than actual cargo vessels. A freighter should be able to move large amounts of cargo. Usually cargo packaged in some sort of standard sized container. Which brings up the question "what would the standard cargo container look like in space?" Earth standard is 8.5' square by 20 feet long. A double container is 40' long. Assuming the presence of a beanstalk, it makes sense to me that the current standards would be maintained.
Any thoughts John Ringo J Ryan Decker Michael Z. Williamson Dan Ward Brian Lee Gnad?

Very very proud to finally be able to announce the launch of Inspiral Healing - a new, modern Healing Organisation, offering our members support, ongoing professional development, support with their spiritual businesses, and competitively discounted insurance. We are now open to our first members, and you are invited to inbox me for prices, more details, and application forms. This is a very exciting development for Inspiral, and I would like to thank Ryan Saunders for the huge amount of work he has put into developing the manuals, training courses, and guidelines.
Heres to a new way forward for all healers ! xxx

Neil deGrasse Tyson:
Stuff I do that falls below my expected level of maturity:
Say funny things at serious meetings.
Swivel around in desk chairs at Board Meetings.
Jump with two feet into puddles.
Lick the plate of tasty gooey food I just finished, even in a nice restaurant.
Order Milkshakes when others order Soft Drinks.
Catch gently falling Snowflakes in my mouth.
Order Lemonade when others order Beer.
Order a Hot Chocolate when others order Coffee.
Order Ice Cream for dessert at a restaurant when others order Creme Brulée.
Crouch down when I talk to kids so I can communicate face to face.
Sip loudly to get the last drops at the end of milkshakes.
High-five toddlers in passing strollers.

BirthSong: So, the babies are all asleep and the house is quiet (except the 11 year old who is listening to The Juice Media). There are baskets and bags of interesting and beautiful things filling my loungeroom which will be accompanying me tomorrow to CERES Environment Park for the book launch of my book The Wild Rainbow: Journeying as Woman, Mother and Sage Femme. I am feeling so vulnerable and courageous and although I am feeling scared, I feel ready. Can't wait to meet you all tomorrow.

Flax & Muse:
I know I've been very quiet here lately.....but I'm working very hard at the evolution of Flax and Muse. Some huge and exciting changes are on the way and I'll be posting regularly soon.
For the photographers who have liked this page there will be a few changes....I'm still doing disc cases and blank albums, but very soon will be adding camera bags and CF card purses to keep you organised and safe.
For the general public it's going to get really exciting....especially for the girls (and guys who like to buy very special presents for their loved ones ;-)).
It's all about beauty, touch, train of thought, love, giving, treading softly on the planet, slow pace and breath, surrounding yourself in the bubble of a more whimsical beautiful world. That's all I can say for now....
Watch this space, I'm nearly there and would love your support when I launch the new range :-)

Guys ndiri kurwadziwa ini. Listen carefully.
The average yield of cotton per hectare is about 5-7 bales. At the current price of 35 cents it means an average bale of 200kgs will fetch around $70. And per hectare it means a high of about $450 to 500. Now listen. A hectare needs about 200 kg of base fertilizer and each 50kg bag is going for around $40. It also needs about 100 kgs of top dress fertilizer. That translates to a total of about 6 bags x $40 that gives us $240. A bag of seed costs about $30 and we need two and that's $60. A bottles of pesticide is going for $6 and one needs about 10 and that another $60. All in all these inputs are now costing around $360. Now get this- this average yield can only be achieved if we receive optimum rainfall that is evenly distributed throughout the season. This year was just something else as u all know. We did not care to include the labour costs coz hahahaha....ma1. U start land prep around October, u plant, weed, carry sprayers, and will rest around June. That's about 9 months of very hard labour. And u get paid $450 and the subtract $360 for the inputs and leave u with less than $100. Less than $100 for 9 months' work???????? This is so pathetic guys. Now this $100 is for someone who manages to reach the averege yield...ko aita mabhero four??? Ko ane three??? This person will have to fork out money somewhere to repay the inputs he took from these cotton companies. Huh..... I'm all tears hey.

Following the official launch of Desire 600, Taiwanese mobile phone maker HTC has made available for purchase in China a new Android-based device, namely the Desire 608t, which features support for the TD-SCDMA network of China Mobile.
The new device appears to be nothing more than a flavor of the Desire 600, courtesy of its 4.5-inch Super LCD 2 screen (960 x 540 pixels) and its 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor.
The mobile phone also comes with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, a microSD memory card slot with support for up to 64GB of additional storage space, an 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back, and a 1.6MP front camera.
The new device also packs an 1860mAh battery inside, as well as NFC connectivity, while featuring a price tag of CN¥2,499 ($408 / €316), as Engadget reports. HTC Desire 608t runs under Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with Sense 5 loaded on top.

RIP Woolwich Soldier:
Trying to simply wish someone RIP and raise money for charity has led to being accused of being affiliated to far right groups. We liked many pages to get this page in front of the masses. Unfortunately one of these pages has been singled out to try and taint our purpose.
Makes me think that it is pointless trying to do something good, and in future not to do nothing at all.
As for our graphics being 'their' graphics it is called the union jack. Its affiliated to our country and everyone in it.
Now I am in a difficult situation as I dont want to be dragged into politics, but I dont want to close this page as it stands for something.
Thank you Mr Telegraph reporter you have made me feel like I am bad person for simply wanting to give people a public community to say RIP and donate to the charity the victim clearly supported.

Cj Cherryh: I find quite vexing the over-emphasis on climate and human-caused catastrophe on 'nature' programs. It's ending every program on a downer, and case of unintended consequences---turning OFF the very people who would be most reachable. I'm very fond of nature. I'm also very fond of the fact nature has built-in failsafes and things that work to stabilize the systems that heat and cool our planet---I'm NOT fond of the fact that scared people, driven into deep mental hidey-holes of denial by the prospect of the earth changing for their kids, don't even want to consider the notion of funding research. I'm quite convinced we COULD lay hands on the great wheels of this business: we have the power source, we have a lot of the technological know-how, and what we DON'T know is the effect of doing it. Is nature going to damp what's going on? And in what direction? I'd like to see far more emphasis on the view that, yes, unbridled usage got us here, but it also gave us the ability to see what's going on and if we decide, internationally, to apply our technology to a fix. Tweak the Conveyor Current or restart it if it stops?? Occlude the Pacific with clouds or let it rip au nature? But every positive show about what we SHOULD be working to save ends with depression and defeatism. And that's NOT what we ought to be preaching, brothas!
