FIRE IN DOWNTOWN GETTYSBURG

:::::FIRE SAFETY:::::

100_1375

This is where my wife Linda and I stayed while in Gettysburg Pa. This hotel is located right on the square and is convenient to “everything”. Great rooms, service,and food..

This is what happened about one block away:::: 

100_1374 100_1368

100_1371

100_1373

     What I find strange; there was no mention of this incident in the local paper the next day. I haven’t been able to get any information by doing computer searches. In essence I don’t know for sure what was going on. I didn’t see any fire or smoke though I did smell  smoke .

     When Linda and I got back to our hotel we did check the safety features there , and everything seemed to be ok. Each year there are over some 30 million fires that strike Americans at home, in hotels, or at the workplace.

     This is what we did: 1. We planned our escape route. Our room was on the third floor and jumping didn’t seem a good idea. 2. We familiarize ourselves with the locations of the fire exits nearest our room. 3.We found nearby fire alarms and fire extinguishers. I do know when traveling and staying in Hotels/Motels etc. I will be more cognizant of the “safety features.”

If I every get back to Gettysburg I will certainly stay at  the Gettysburg Hotel again.. 

By the way we stayed in the Boyd’s Bear room..

RATS IN A CAGE

EARTHS

POPULATION

EQUATES TO 

BACTERIA ON A :::::

NASA-Earth

PETRIE DISH

Agar_plate_with_colonies

What we are seeing is  an exponentially increasing __ WORLD population__SEE CHART#1 BELOW

 World_population_curve_-_log_y_scale

CHART #2 BELOW::

Bacterial_growth

THIS IS A CHART OF BACTERIAL GROWTH IN A PETRIE DISH POPULATION (L) OVER TIME (T). RELATE THAT TO WORLD POPULAYION GROWTH…

SECTION(A) –10000 TO –4000 ON TIME SCALE

SECTION (B) –4000 TO 2009 As of March 2009, the world's population is estimated to be about 6.76 billion.

The world's population is expected to reach about 9 billion by the year 2040

PROJECTIONS SHOW WORLD POPULATION will crest as early as around 2050 at under 9 billion, or 10 to 11 billion__AREA ( C ) .

AREA ( C) ON ABOVE CHART::

1.Food prices in the early 21st century are rising sharply, and causing  malnutrition to spread widely

2.SO FAR Food production has kept pace with population growth . Yet, food production is dependent on (fertilizer) which is   petroleum-based .

3.Recoverable oil reserves are significantly less than total oil in place. At current consumption levels,  known recoverable reserves would be gone around 2039, potentially leading to a global energy CRISIS……REMEMBER  All fertilizer doesn’t come from petroleum there are “natural or organic fertilizers” BUT IT IS ALL CARBON CHEMISTRY….

Oil_well

SUMMARY: “OR AREA D”

IN THE ABOVE CHART::

1.Bacteria on the Petri dish use up all the NUTRIENTS and die

2.DO WE EXHAUST EARTHS RESOURCES YIELDING A MASS “DIE OFF” OF billions of people on this spherical Petri dish CALLED EARTH…

3. WILL “ALPHA MALES” OF THE WORLD FIGHTING OVER LIMITED RESOURCES,AIDS, ETHNIC CLEANSING, AND TERRORIST ACCELERATE MANKINDS DECLINE.IS POPULATION CONTROL THE ANSWER? WILL THERE BE A Malthusian catastrophe??

WHAT IS THE ANSWER??

I DO KNOW THAT PEOPLE THINK AND BACTERIA DON’T. WE ALSO HAVE LANGUAGE. IS THE EARTH REALLY LIKE A PETRIE DISH OR IS THE EARTH A ““LIVING ORGANISM”” IN ITS OWN RIGHT ? ASK OUR NATIVE AMERICANS.  THERE ARE OTHER RESOURCES::

UNIVERSE JUST THE WHOLE UNIVERSE AND WITH OUR INGENUITY

SPACE SHUTTLE A WAY TO GET THERE..

WHAT I REALLY THINK :: I , WE , ARE NOT IN CHARGE ANYWAY.

A SUPREME BEING OF MY “NO UNDERSTANDING” CALLS THE SHOTS ...

SO LETS BE GOOD STEWARDS OF THE EARTH :::AND::: GIVE THE “ALPHA MALES” PROZAC OR SOME ORGANIC HERBS GROWN IN Mendocino COUNTY CALIF. FOR MEDICINAL PURPOSES ONLY..

I’M GOING GOLFING

BASTILLE BEING STORMED

BASTILLE BEING STORMED

SOCIAL CHANGE

Causes of the French Revolution

High unemployment and high bread prices caused more money to be spent on food and less in other areas of the economy.Unemployment rate rises to highest level in 14 months -

Another cause was the continued conspicuous consumption of the noble class .Outrageous $450 million AIG bonus payout.

The inefficient and antiquated financial system was unable to manage the national debt.

U.S. National Debt: 10.9 Trillion & Clicking

Plight of the poorest who faced a daily struggle with malnutrition.It may be hard to believe, but the City of Los Angeles is the hunger capital of the United STATES

OBAMA ascended to the throne amidst a financial crisis; the nation was nearing bankruptcy and outlays outpaced income.

Finally, perhaps above all, was the almost total failure of OBAMA and his advisers to deal effectively with any of these problems.JUST A WORD TO THE WISE HERE….

Estates-General of 2009

The Estates-General was organized into three estates:::::

(Executive branch,Legislative branch,Judicial branch),,,WALLSTREET,,,,(THE SUCKER,US,There's a sucker born every minute)

National Assembly (French Revolution)

 800px-Serment_du_jeu_de_paume

1. Obama vowing to rid Washington of earmarks before signing a bill that had almost 9,000 of them.

2.Senator Ted Stevens, a  felon, receiving $122,000 a year from a government pension.

3.Congressman Charlie Rangel,  man most responsible for the U.S. tax code, failing to pay taxes on his  vacation home

4.DON’T FORGET::

Bernie Madoff's $50 Billion Ponzi Scheme  OR
How I Got Screwed by Bernie Madoff

TO BAD BERNIE

THIS COULD GO ON FOREVER BUT I THINK I’LL GO GOLFING INSTEAD..

NOT INSPIRED BY:::THE REVOLUTION WILL DEVOUR CONGRESS

CORRELATION

Pi Day United States of America constant π and is usually observed today, on March 14 (3.14, get it?)

MATHMATICALLY SPEAKING:

\rho_{X,Y}={\mathrm{cov}(X,Y) \over \sigma_X \sigma_Y} ={E((X-\mu_X)(Y-\mu_Y)) \over \sigma_X\sigma_Y},

Correlation

Correlation is a statistical technique that can show whether and how strongly pairs of variables are related. For example, height and weight are related; taller people tend to be heavier than shorter people.

QUESTION: WHAT IS THE CORRELATION
