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 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 2018. The 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…Continue
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…Continue
... the shenanigans of those members of both Houses of Parliament •
who desperately seek for the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern
Ireland to remain members of the so-called European Union • that none of
them or their cohorts of course, have anything in common with those that
can claim allegiance to The Curious Case of [BE]ing British; because they

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

We know nothing of MAN, far too little. His psyche shouldContinue

...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 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…Continue
