A CRY IN THE WILDERNESS OF SWINDON TO BE HEARD ...

          Both of the demographic maps of the Swindon Unitary Authority,

          following the results of  The Referendum to Leave the EU and

          the Number of Patients per Doctor • indicate explicitly that the

          voters of the North Swindon Constituency, let alone the rest of

          the UK, are not [BE]ing responsibly listened to or represented by

          either of the two Houses of Parliament. I would therefore suggest

          that those residents of North Swindon particularly, have now got

          the opportunity to express their total frustration with respect to

          Representation OF the People, FOR the People and BY the People

          by way of a few clicks of the mouse, to SIGN this PETITION.

CHINA'S 'ZERO TOLERANCE'

China on Monday also ordered its airlines to suspend operations of

their 737 MAX 8 jets by 6 p.m. (1000 GMT) following the second crash

of a Boeing 737 MAX jet since one run by Indonesia's Lion Air went

down in October 2018The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC)

said it would notify airlines when they could resume flying the jets, after

contacting Boeing and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

"Given that two accidents both involved newly delivered Boeing 737-8 planes and happened…

THE CITY OF VENICE ...

provides a great example of how engineering technology has evolved over the centuries. From the past challenges of constructing an entire city on water to the present problems of saving a city from flooding, engineers have had to adapt and change their methods to provide solutions to pressing issues. The MOSE solution to Venice’s flooding problem is an ambitious project that has required almost two decades of planning and testing. If it succeeds in preventing rising water levels from flooding the city, it will save Venice for future generations to enjoy.

The city of Venice was built in the early 1500’s A.D. on a collection of 117 low islands at the center of a lagoon. The numerous canals provided an ideal location for a city because they formed a natural defense against foreign attackers, similar to a moat. In order to build a city above the water, early architects had to build stable foundations that were sunk deep into a bed of compounded silt and sand called subsoil. The construction material of choice for these foundations was wood stakes from native alder trees. Wood made an ideal foundation material because the submerged wood was not exposed to air, which inhibited deterioration and rotting. In addition, the wood provided a strong, yet flexible support that could resist the constant movement of the tides.

These alder stakes supported a horizontal wooden platform of elm and larch (called zatterone, or “large rafts”), where foundation walls of large stone blocks were…

SYNERGISTICALLY SPEAKING ...

       

    Buckminster Fuller employs the discipline of a lecturer,

    recommencing his expositions from the beginning,

    reviewing the previous experiments and recalls of

    experiences. His written discourse, like his speech, is

    replete with sustained narrative sequences that

    recapitulate the geometrical premises, ever starting

    back from the beginning . . . as Fuller says, like the

    pole vaulter who always goes back to the end of the

    cinder track before repeating his sprint.

                                                            E. J. Applewhite Washington, D.C. 19 February 1979

NOW'S YOUR CHANCE ...

...to at least get access to archived copies of the Magazine

if you go through the process of registering your interest in

DOING SO. I did so in order that I could access the article

about the launching of *zaadz but unfortunately there is no

index to assist in the process, so if anyone knows which

issue of  the magazine contained that article I would be

most obliged if they would do so.



This Gaia Community *zBlog cyber-presence was established with its cyber-speak "transistion" strap-line of COMPASSION, COLLABORATION & COOPERATION at the time when ALL of us *zaadsters had been given the very short notice that the site and it's contents, were about to be archived themselves but in a manner…

Synergetics is the system of holistic thinking which R. Buckminster Fuller introduced and began to formulate. Synergetics is multi-faceted: it involves geometric modeling, exploring inter-relationships in the facts of experience and the process of thinking. Synergetics endeavors to identify and understand the methods…
