the lawsuit has 59 points...
point 42 reads:
42. Further, it should be noted that on September 10, 2001, the day before the attack, Defendant Rumsfeld conducted a press conference at the Pentagon in which he publicly announced that auditors had determined that some 2.3 trillion dollars in Defense Department funds —$2.300,000,000,000 — could not be accounted for. To plaintiff’s knowledge and belief, part of the area of the ground floor of the Pentagon that was destroyed in the bombing is a location where records were kept that would be used to trace those funds, and where people worked who knew about them. On information and belief, there has been to this day no public report concerning the fate of those records, or that money.

I couldn't watch all of it, it's such a obvious attempt to discredit someone. I can't be arsed to research the background of this piece as frankly the yanks are so self obsessed and child like, spending time getting to the bottom of this is just going to waste my time, I have more interesting and constructive things to be doing.

I'm not a fan of the interviewer's technique and opinionated ranting about opec members, he's fuelling the masses-using his position to properganda proportions
The measurement known as a mile is a vestige of the Roman Empire's rule over Britain. At this time, the Romans had a measurement known as mille pasuum (ME-lay PA-soo-em), or a thousand paces. A pace comprised five, possibly sandal shod, Roman feet. Using a simple mathematical calculation, we arrive at 5,000 feet per mile.
The demise of the Roman Empire left the Britons in a quandary. They now had a mile, consisting of 5,000 feet, and their own agricultural measurement, the furlong, used to measure the farmers' fields for the purpose of property deeds, etc. Instead of using the Roman foot in calculating the measure of a furlong, they used the distance a horse could pull a plow, in a linear fashion, before the nag needed a nap. They agreed that this measurement consisted 660 feet.
Now came the dilemma. The British wished to marry the furlong to the mile, but, as they wanted a mile to comprise eight furlongs, totaling 5,280 feet, instead of the Roman 5,000 feet per mile, they had no choice but to select one of the two. Not surprisingly, they chose their measurement over the Roman measurement because, as property deeds at the time were measured in furlongs, or 660 feet, a change to the Roman measurement would short the farmer or landowner.
What is the diameter of the earth?The diameter of the earth at the equator is 7,926.41 miles (12,756.32 kilometers).
But, if you measure the earth through the poles the diameter is a bit shorter - 7,901 miles (12,715.43 km). Thus the earth is a tad wider (25 miles / 41 km) than it is tall, giving it a slight bulge at the equator. This shape is known as an ellipsoid or more properly, geoid (earth-like).

On the way back, I had a pen thrown at me and a little later some boy leans out of a passing car and shouts an inoperable word at me. I don't understand why. I did take a picture of the pen with accompanying pavement and surroundings.
John Cooper Clark has a poem that might well help in this situation.
That's a basis of health and safety.
If something is known about, and could be improved upon
would we all collectively want it to be improved upon.
If someone states something we don't like,
what's the reaction.
here's another offering from Cooper Clark
What do I mean ?
I saw Atilla and John Cooper at a small festival in essex, there were of a lot of acts on that weekend, and it's because of those two that i remember what the weekend was. At a festival this summer, atilla was performing and having seen him again, I remember JCC. His almost dylan esque appearance and accent defining. I spoke of jim last nite in the pub, with a bloke what i now talk to when we are both in the pub. Seeing and hearing him again has been a link, a positive happy link back to those earlier times. At those earlier times, I maybe wasn't able to follow up seeing those guys and I'd not been at the festival with friends, so there was not that festival follow up thing.
Finding jcc playing nearby and atila too, I've made a connection with those past times and now, as I say, kind of picking up where I left off, although at the time I was unaware of that.

The assertion that 9/11 passengers lists “contained no Arab names” is frequently seen in the 9/11 truth movement. For example, this article by Enver Masud is headlined, “Why are there no Arab names on the passenger list for the planes used in the September 11, 2001 attack…?” The 9/11 website 9/11 Hard Facts claims, “[On] officially released passenger lists provided by the airlines to the media, no Arab names appear on any of the four passenger lists.” In David Ray Griffin’s 9/11: The Myth and the Reality, he repeats the claim that, “[Their] names should be on the flight manifests. But the flight manifests that have been released contain neither the names of the alleged hijackers nor any other Arab names.” John Leonard, Webster Tarpley and Kevin Barrett’s publisher, repeats the claim that “Scholars [for 9/11 Truth]… report things like ‘there were no Arabs on the passenger lists’” As well, Michael C. Ruppert, citing Gary North wrote, “Another easy and non-debatable hole is with the passenger lists and the hijackers. Gary North, Ph.D. - a history professor… relied on lists published by CNN… Official reports state that there were only 19 hijackers. Second, none of listed passenger names are Arabic, Muslim… The government needs to provide an explanation for this glaring discrepancy.”

Obama, that bloke hoping to be a president of the USof A made an acceptance speech. I couldn't be arsed to stay up and watch it, so I let some very nice people edit it and screen it for me via the news the following day. Within their edit they included the bit that Obama said
And for the sake of our economy, our security, and the future of our planet, I will set a clear goal as president: in 10 years, we will finally end our dependence on oil from the Middle East.
The day before Ob's speech I'd watched A Crude Awakening. Within it were references to the US of A's fule usage. I thought, how the hell is Ob proposing to do this seemingly impossible thing. He continued after the quoted line to say
Washington's been talking about our oil addiction for the last 30 years, and John McCain has been there for 26 of them. In that time, he's said no to higher fuel-efficiency standards for cars, no to investments in renewable energy, no to renewable fuels. And today, we import triple the amount of oil as the day that Senator McCain took office.
Now is the time to end this addiction, and to understand that drilling is a stop-gap measure, not a long-term solution. Not even close.
As president, I will tap our natural gas reserves, invest in clean coal technology, and find ways to safely harness nuclear power. I'll help our auto companies retool, so that the fuel-efficient cars of the future are built right here in America. I'll make it easier for the American people to afford these new cars. And I'll invest $150bn over the next decade in affordable, renewable sources of energy - wind power and solar power and the next generation of biofuels; an investment that will lead to new industries and five million new jobs that pay well and can't ever be outsourced.
Ob has hit upon something that is dicussed within the Peak Oil discussion.
My issue with the 10 year clain is that he'll only possibly be in office for 8 years and he'll need to purseude the good ol american people to use less petroleum.
The notion of Peak Oil began in the US of A in 1956, it was not taken seriously and ignored for 20 years. With time, it's possible to look back and say, "hell that professor bloke was right."
I can't be arsed with American politics, coz it's just like the UK, just bigger and even worse.
What the West needs is some strong leadership that does something about the situation, rather than reacting to soemthing already going on.
I believe that Peak Oil is real enough to need to take seriously now. If we don't, there will be a hell of a shock sometime in the future where we are told there are only a few years of crude oil left.

the thread of thought about a political party in england has been interesting for me this week. Finally I see that responding in a manner that is as negative as the thing that the response is about doesn't help to show the negative ness ness of the initial thing.
it does have some really boring anal statistics about the equipment.

"WASHINGTON — After four years of painstaking scientific research, the F.B.I. by 2005 had traced the anthrax in the poisoned letters of 2001 to a single flask of the bacteria at the Army biodefense laboratory at Fort Detrick, Md., according to government scientists and bureau officials.
these were taken from :
Pressure Grows for F.B.I.’s Anthrax Evidence
The process involves being matched to other participants, my results are here
My application was very much in the dating agency style. Including an old picture and frank and uninteresting stuff about me.
With recent thooughts about an older piece of work, and a television failing, if selected, the work shown will probably not be that which was submitted. As the wltm process isn't about the work, what work I show will be down to my descision nearer the date.
I wait with interest the final results and news of selection or not.

maybe coincidence is also a factor with such things. If you were at a race meeting and saw two magpies, would you get the motor race stopped.
It's the olympics soon. Some random bloke in America has been saying some stuff. Obviously it's a construct and he likes to hear his own voice so nothing will happen. Just in case he's not quite as mad as he seems...
I have recieved this...
Webster Tarpley is doing his Saturday show "World Crisis Radio" this weekend as an all out warning and call to action against a possible U.S. Covert Op to shame the Chinese with a terrorist attack at the games. He is talking about how he is concerned they will be using a rebel group as a patsy. Tarpley is warning that this will the biggest mistake the current U.S. shadow government forces (Zbigniew Brzezinski) could make to anger China.
You can use GCN Network to listen with World Crisis Radio On Demand
Here is the article Tarpley is talking about on his show:

As America Collapses US Government Secret Plans Revealed The mass media said almost nothing about the secret meeting of the House, mentioning only one of the items being discussed. (The new surveillance techniques that are going to be used by the U.S. Government to watch all American citizens). The story was first released in a newspaper out of Brisbane, Australia revealing the contents of the secret U.S. Government meeting and plans for America including all of it's citizens. Shortly there after, David J. Meyer from Last Trumpet Ministries found it and made it more available for the world to see.
The imminent collapse of the U.S. Economy to occur sometime in late 2008
- The imminent collapse of the U.S. Government finances sometime in mid 2009
- The possibility of Civil War inside the United States as a result of the collapse
- The advance round-ups of "insurgent U.S. Citizens" likely to move against the government
- The detention of those rounded up at The REX 84 Camps constructed throughout the United States
- The possibility of public retaliation against members of Congress for the collapses
- The location of safe facilities for members of Congress and their families to reside during massive civil unrest
- The necessary and unavoidable merger of The U.S. with Canada and Mexico establishing The North American Union
- The issuance of a new currency called the AMERO for all three nations as an economic solution.
Such complex and massive preparations, even for the above mentioned "safe facilities" alone, would require a great deal of time to accomplish don't you think? How long have "they" been so expectantly preparing? What is this really about?

I struggle with the word "artist". In the past I've worked with artists and I'm nothing like them and I struggle with people using the word "artist" when clearly they are an artisan.
I hope that the more I see my name within several words of "artist" that the feeling comes to me. In the meantime, I'll do my own thing, make what I want to make, understanding that in no way does it fit with "mainstream" culture and not really knowing where within the "underground" I am. I will not add that this scenario at times is lonely, coz that would just be silly.

how dare he do this.
how dare he use an unempowered creature and do with it what he wants. It's outrageous. I can't believe a human would do this to a dog. I can't believe a human would manipulate a creature unable to speak for it self for his own wants, needs and goals.
I can't believe in a sophisticated developed society, this kind of behaviour is possible.
I can't believe that so many citizens are unaware of what is happening in their own country. I can't beleive that a human would willfully do something that compromises the quality of life of another.
There needs to be more awareness made about people that do this sort of thing to others. It surely can't be allowed to continue. Surely the people will up rise and exclaim NO - enough already."
the blog is connected with an artist who placed a dog in an art gallery.
The blog is mediated and a post that I thought was reasoned was not published. The above has been written in a deliberate 'rant' style in a deliberate attempt to get it published by the blog administrator. I believe that the blog is somewhat biased.
When reading the above entry, consider the American government, instead of artist.
What are your thoughts ?
no, failed again.
another try... fingers crossed....it is a smaller file, so hopes are in upward positive areas of hopeful ness ness.
NO. another failure...

Darling says oil price "real problem"
LONDON (Reuters) - The oil price is a real problem and production needs to rise, Chancellor Alistair Darling said on Thursday.
In a radio interview with the BBC, Darling said high oil prices were feeding inflationary pressures not just in Britain but around the world.
"Oil was yesterday over $140 a barrel. When you consider that a year ago it was half that, this is a real problem for us," he said.
"We have got to ensure two things I think. One is that we can increase production of oil in the short term but also in the longer term we have got to reduce our dependency, particularly for our country, on imported levels of oil and gas."

I took the notion of the stick person to Ilam with me...
all the sketches were made under the notion of diversity for the animals living there. By my intervention with the environment, I was making it more interesting for the animals. The enjoyable part of that is that not all of my human counter parts noticed what I'd made and done in the space.
The formal pieces of work had to be removed after a certain time. The sketches of diversity were left for the animals to discover.

I am investigating work made from documentitive occurrences within situations. I’m interested in relationships and their change.
To research these I joined a Community Cohesion programme as a resident and became involved in a project involving creative processes as a means to bring people together. Through discussion it became clear that communication and space to understand between citizens are needed for a community to start to work again.
In the work on display, I am looking at relationships in two part, three part and communication within, using documentitive occurrences gathered from the community in which I live.

Big events take time and experience to put on. The government took on the Millennium Dome in late 90's as a company taking on a sales conference for the first time and without really listening to those with experience. Are the 2012 games heading towards an embracing fiasco or the magnificent thing that the marketeers told us it would be like so all we have to do is trust their word and everything will be lovely.
Remember that the media centre was originally placed near the centre of the village. In the shake up of plans a year after the bid was won, the media centre was moved to the outskirts of the village so that the space left could be used for corporate hospitality suites.

I have the 'Box of Rejection' and 'Digital Multi-sheet images' on show. I will be there at the event recording and documenting the 'goings on'. I'm quite nervy about it, scared, worn out by bureaucracy yet OK with it at the same time. All this while still being very scared about the next two months within the degree programme.
And I'm starting to get into Heidegger...

at home with John and Debbie
then there is this site for all things rumoured.
I quite like this answer.
once the research becomes slightly diluted and leads to this kind of thing, I do feel that it's time for a cup of coffee and consideration of what to have for tea.
