If You Are Arrogant Enough to Ignore Evidence and Keep on Doing Dinosaur-Economics You Are Welcome to Axe At Your Own Interest But You Must Not Chop Everyone Else’s at the Same Time: Except You Are Seeking to Harm Everyone By Chopping At Yourself: Let Black Rock’s Fossil Fuel-Addiction Stands as Evidence for the World That Fossil Fuel Is Dinosaur Economics and It Has No Place in the Future of This World and This Humanity

 

 

 

|| Thursday: August 01: 2019 || ά. Black Rock, the world’s largest fund manager with US$06.5 trillion of assets under management, that is bigger in value than the third largest economy in the world and, with it, probably, it has amassed as much arrogance to suit its dinosaur self-vanity, so that it continues to ignore the serious financial risks of putting money into fossil fuel-dependent companies, a new Report has found.

Produced by the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis:IEEFA, the Report places a price tag on Black Rock’s fossil fuel-heavy strategy, saying the firm’s failure to effectively address risk has lost investors over US$90 billion in value destruction and opportunity cost from just a select few holdings over the past decade. Entitled ‘Inaction Is Black Rock’s Biggest Risk During the Energy Transition: Still Lagging in Sustainable Investing Leadership’, the Report exposes the global company as failing in value creation for investors and as a laggard in sustainable finance.

Out of Black Rock’s US$90 billion in estimated losses, 75% are due to its investments in four companies alone: ExxonMobil, Chevron, Royal Dutch Shell and BP, which have all underperformed the market in the past decade. Black Rock maintains that it has little control over its US$04.3 trillion passively managed portfolio.

Yet, leading peers, such as, Amundi, Norges Bank, AP4, Storebrand and KLP have all developed low‑carbon investing strategies, that provide, at least, comparable risk-adjusted returns in a cost‑effective sustainable way, as expected of leading asset managers, providing leadership and creating suitable, risk-protected products.

Black Rock’s Board of Directors is beset with potential conflicts of interest, with six out of 18 board members having worked in companies with strong ties to the fossil fuel sector. Furthermore, while Black Rock’s governance team advocates for a separation of the Chair and Chief Executive Officer positions at its portfolio companies, Mr Larry Fink still holds both roles in the firm.

Despite public announcements, highlighting its commitment to sustainable investments, only 0.8% of Black Rock’s total portfolio is invested in environmental, social and governance:ESG oriented funds.

In 2018, Ceres calculated that Black Rock supported just 10% of climate-related shareholder proposals in the U.S, choosing to side with management in the majority of cases. IEEFA, also, notes Black Rock does not disclose the results of its engagement with companies over ESG issues.

Mr Tim Buckley, IEEFA Director of Energy Finance Studies and Co-author of the Report says that due to its enormous size, bigger than Japan, the third largest economy in the world, Black Rock should demonstrate stronger leadership. “It has the power to lead globally to address climate risk, yet, to-date, it remains a laggard.” says Mr Buckley.

Black Rock continues to sink investor funds into fossil fuel holdings in stark contrast to recent moves by the trillion-dollar Norwegian Government Pension Fund Global, which announced its divestment from oil and gas and other major funds have shown similar leadership.

“If, the world’s largest investor makes it clear the rules have changed, then, other globally significant investors like Fidelity, Vanguard and Japan’s sovereign wealth fund will rapidly replicate and reinforce these moves, reducing stranded asset risks for all.” says MrBuckley.

The Report finds that Black Rock lost its investors over US$02bn as Peabody Energy went bankrupt, then doubled down on Cloud Peak Energy as it went into bankruptcy three years later. And Black Rock lost its investors US$19bn on General Electric.

Mr Tom Sanzillo, IEEFA Co-author of the Report and former First Deputy Comptroller of New York State, says, ‘’ Black Rock is both behind the curve on coal and in reading the energy transition. How many more examples of value destruction will it take, how many more years of fossil fuel companies lagging the world markets will it take before Black Rock leads?” asks Mr Sanzillo. “A diversified portfolio is not an excuse to lose money.”

IEEFA’s analysis shows how Black Rock fails to, systematically, protect its investors from key long-term investment risks. The Bank of England talks of potentially $20 trillion of asset risk involved, with shareholders the biggest losers, according to the Report. 

IEEFA uses the Report to call on Black Rock to mobilise their world-leading investment power to address the US$68 billion lost in value destruction and opportunity cost by managing key financial climate risks, for companies and shareholders. “Black Rock’s fossil fuel investment strategy, governance, shareholder policies and views on global economic growth would succeed in the 1980’s. Black Rock is educating its clients to accept decline. Today it would do better by getting the energy transition right.” says Mr Sanzillo.

The Report recommends that Black Rock immediately propose and progressively institute low-emission index benchmarks for its passive funds as a financial best practice and core principle of asset allocation and in so doing, once again, become an innovative leader.

IEEFA suggests that Black Rock would do well to refresh its board to remove the excessive incumbent fossil fuel influence and losses that come with it. It should, also, take its own advice and appoint an independent Chair.

“Win or lose, profit or loss, a responsible fiduciary asks tough, clear questions. Black Rock does not ask or worse, it mumbles. Shareholder reforms should include active engagement to replace the current practice of predominantly voting with the incumbent, usually, conflicted management on climate issues.” Mr Sanzillo says.

Given the enormous financial, economic and environmental risks for all, IEEFA calls on Black Rock to leverage its unprecedented global financial dominance and demonstrate superior stewardship. “In our view, it is Black Rock’s fiduciary duty as a global leader to lead.” says Mr Buckley.

Earth Overshoot Day: Humanity Has No Circularity Until We Learn to Exist in Sustainable Ways: We are Headed by Capitalistic Infinite Consumption and Infinite Greed Towards Extinction and at the Point of No Return Talking of Superficiality Will Not Do: It Is Time for Fundamental Monumental and Seismic Actions

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

|| Monday: July 29: 2019 || ά. Today, July 29 is the Earth Overshoot Day by which, it appears that we have consumed more renewable natural resources than the Earth will produce this year. We have consumed these natural resources in less than seven months, although, they should last us the whole year. Earth Overshoot Day marks the date when, according to calculations, people’s consumption exceeds the Earth’s biocapacity or, the capacity to generate renewable resources and process the carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere from the burning of fossil fuels.

At our current rate of consumption, we would need 01.75 Earth to support our demand on the eco-system. Earth Overshoot Day is determined based on the calculations of the Global Footprint Network. Finland is already well past its country overshoot day for this year, which was April 05 so that the country will consume another eight months of the year resources, that the earth can not produce so will all other countries and nations of the world and the world goes on, as, if, people are speaking of getting another bag to get the extra shopping! There is one earth and on it, humanity can not continue consuming infinitely without thinking of the consequences. There is one earth and we can not have another one!

The circular economy aims to increase the lifespan of products and to advance the use of services and solutions, that decrease the overuse of natural resources. The goods we use, must, also, be serviceable, reparable and recyclable. Here is the elephant in the room, that no one in the world among the hundreds of states and governments are doing anything about or, even, speaking about or, worse still, they are not even aware of these vital issues. Capitalism has created an infinite consumerism culture, fed by its infinite greed for profiteering, through which it dangerously, carelessly and recklessly keeps on producing products and imposes them on the market for consumptions, that are not required, thus, making them pseudo products to channel real money out of the economy and out of the pockets of the consumers.

This must be brought under international laws, as well as, local laws at every country so that these companies are forced to change this pseudonomic pathways to use and abuse financial, natural and human resources into products, that are not necessary. Take an example, a mobile telephone, with the current state of development, should be made and it is clearly possible to do so, to last decades and throughout these decades they should be repairable, serviceable and recyclable. But the telephone companies and in them are included the entire distorteddia conglomerate, who are bringing out their telephones and other products and devices, many times a year in many cases! This is a gigantic waste of all resources: natural resources, financial resources and human resources all of which are wasted away into nothing but profiteering and greed and in this process these companies are channelling real worth and values out of the economies and out the pockets of the consumers.

These companies must no longer be permitted to gamble with life and human existence like that. It can not go on this way and world’s states and governments must take up the vision and see how many parts of the world economy and the national economies of all countries are being looted by these companies while they are depleting the most vital of all resources, the natural resources, that we can not produce and its supply is finite. Added to all these now add their carbon foot print and other costs to nature, environment and air quality etc and any child could see that this can not be sustainable.

Like cars, freezes and telephones, mobiles phones, computers, laptops, washing machines, dishwasher and a whole host of commodities like this, that are necessary and in everyday use everywhere must be made in this way, the olden way, where they are made to last, serviceable and repairable, as well as, recyclable and at the same time these companies must produce and supply the parts for people to do so. People can speak of superficial things but the world and world humanity have now reached a point of no return and no longer it is acceptable that world’s states and governments are ignoring and looking away from the most fundamental of all issues. This should and must be the most urgent of priorities.

Let us make another point here: how many billions of mobile telephone sets are in use today across the globe? It is a scary number because many people are using more than one mobile phone these days so that the number of mobile phones must outnumber us humanity. These massive number of devices require electricity twenty-four-seven and they all are high intense in their energy usage? How much is that electricity! It can not but be a gigantic amount, that is the highest cost of the use of the mobile telephones today and how much does that cost the earth! Yet, these companies are making these mobile phones, that use highest amount of electricity and it takes up far too much energy to keep on charging each of these phones. Why on earth the world does not make these telephone companies to make their phones to use least possible amount of electricity? Most importantly, why on earth these companies have not been made to invest in ways so that they develop their technologies so that the mobile phones can generate electricity from solar and other natural sources? No mobile phone companies is interested in it.

Yet, this gigantic amount of electricity production cost the earth, literally, an earth. It is time the world’s states and government bring changes as to how these companies run. To force these companies change the way they bring their products to market the world’s states and governments must introduce green taxes for the high usage of electricity by their products and another solar charge, a high percentage of their profit so that they improve their phones and make them less energy intensive and force them to invest and make their phone self-sufficient, so that each phone uses solar energy to charge itself so the earth is saved from their massive harms for they are now using far too much energy, the production of which costs the earth far too much. The world’s states and governments can no longer ignore these issues.  

Over-consumption is one of the most significant causes of climate change and dwindling bio-diversity. It compromises the availability of food, clean water and raw materials. The consequences can already be seen today: the global climate is already around one degree warmer than in pre-industrial times and about one million of the world’s plant and animal species are in danger of extinction.

“We must take quick action to reduce our consumption of natural resources. The Earth can not support our over-consumption, which is a major cause of bio-diversity loss and the progression of climate change.” Says Ms Krista Mikkonen, Finland’s Minister of the Environment and Climate Change.

At the global level, we currently consume around 80 billion tonnes of raw materials per year, of which just nine per cent is reused or recycled. Our consumption is expected to double by 2060.

“Circular economy solutions present an opportunity for us to reuse the natural resources we have already used, produce less waste and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from industry. Promoting the circular economy is one of the main priorities of Finland’s Presidency of the Council of the EU, during which time we aim to produce a new EU circular economy strategy.” Ms Mikkonen says.:::ω.

Hunger Exists Because Capitalist Economies Create and Sustain It and Because Their States and Governments Politically Will It: Over 820 Million People Are Suffering From Hunger: New United Nations Report Shows the Desperate Realities of Nearly One Billion Human Beings in Hunger Out of Seven Billion of Humanity on Earth: Will the World Humanity Stop to Ask What Kind of a Political Economics Is Capitalism That Keeps One Billion Out of Seven in Hunger

 

 

 

|| Monday: July 15: 2019 || ά. After nearly a decade of progress, the number of people, who suffer from hunger has slowly increased over the past three years, with about one in every nine people globally suffering from hunger today, the United Nations said in a new Report released on Monday. This fact underscores ‘the immense challenge’ to achieving the Zero Hunger target of the Sustainable Development Goals:SDGs by 2030, according to the State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World 2019. And here is a little question for the United Nations, that went about agreeing these Sustainable Development Goals and since then all its leaders kept of using the phrase, as, if, it all will come about! There is nothing sustainable in capitalism.

Where has the United Nations been since the financial crash from what point the entire capitalist world and, almost, all the world governments went about implementing ruthless, vicious and merciless austerity, taking bread and butter out of the poor and vulnerable in their countries where, even, in the developed world, such as the United Kingdom, children are going to school hungry and they will suffer the summer holiday hunger while their parents line the food banks! What is the United Nations speaking of when it goes on and on about the Sustainable Development Goals!

There is nothing sustainable about capitalism: it has created fear and scare. It has created inequality and it keeps on increasing it. It has created hunger and it keeps of feeding that hunger so that it keeps on getting worse. It has created consumerism and consuming so that it has brought us industrial pollution, plastic pollution, air pollution, devastation of marine life and ecology and with all these it has brought the world and the earth to catastrophic point by creating climate change and global warming, if, we list nothing else! The last two threaten the very human existence and already have started to eat away at the bio-diversity of the earth’s life and living system and ecology! What is sustainable about capitalism! And, were one to ask the United Nations how on earth is it planning to get to the ‘chic’ phrase, zero hunger, by 2030! Where are the investments to do that? Where is the money for this?

Who is providing that money! Capitalism is a parasite and it destroys its hosts. There is nothing sustainable in capitalism but it does as it has always done: sustain fear and scare, inequality, poverty and with it hunger and malnutrition among many other high-cruelties, barbarities and viciousness. United Nations can not answer these questions but the world humanity must raise them: it is time to raise a simple question: what kind of a political economics is capitalism, that keep 1:7th of the whole of the human race in hunger! What kind of a monstrosity is this? And how long the desperate world humanity will keep on accepting it?

This new Report, launched on the margins of the High-level Political Forum:HLPF, the main UN platform monitoring follow-up on States’ actions on the SDGs, currently under way in New York, breaks down statistics by region, and shows that hunger has risen almost 20 per cent in Africa’s subregions, areas, which, also, have the greatest prevalence of undernourishment.

Although, the pervasiveness of hunger in Latin America and the Caribbean is still below seven per cent, it is slowly increasing. And in Asia, undernourishment affects 11 per cent of the population. Although, southern Asia saw great progress over the last five years, at almost 15 per cent, it is still the subregion with the highest prevalence of undernourishment.

“Our actions to tackle these troubling trends will have to be bolder, not only in scale but, also, in terms of multi-sectoral collaboration.” the Heads of the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation:FAO, the International Fund for Agricultural Development:IFAD, the UN Children’s Fund:UNICEF, the World Food Programme:WFP and the World Health Organisation:WHO urged in their joint foreword to the Report.

Hunger is increasing in many countries where economic growth is lagging, particularly, in middle income countries and those, that rely heavily on international primary commodity trade. The annual UN Report, also, found that income inequality is rising in many of the countries where hunger is on the rise, making it even more difficult for the poor, vulnerable or marginalised to cope with economic slowdowns and downturns.

“We must foster pro-poor and inclusive structural transformation focusing on people and placing communities at the centre to reduce economic vulnerabilities and set ourselves on track to ending hunger, food insecurity and all forms of malnutrition.” the UN leaders said. 

This year’s edition of the report takes a broader look at the impact of food insecurity, beyond hunger. It introduces, for the first time, a second indicator for monitoring Sustainable Development Goals:SDGs Target 2.1 on the Prevalence of Moderate or Severe Food Insecurity that shows that 17.2 per cent of the world’s population or 01.3 billion people, lacked regular access to nutritious and sufficient food.

“Even, if, they were not necessarily suffering from hunger, they are at greater risk of various forms of malnutrition and poor health.” according to the report. The combination of moderate and severe levels of food insecurity brings the estimate to about two billion people, where in every continent, women are slightly more food insecure than men.

Turning to children, the Report disclosed that since 2012, no progress has been made in reducing low birth weight. Additionally, while the number of under-five children affected by stunting has decreased over the past six years by 10 per cent globally, the pace of progress is too slow to meet the 2030 target of halving the number of stunted children.

Furthermore, overweight and obesity continue to increase throughout all regions, particularly, among school-age children and adults. To safeguard food security and nutrition, the 2019 Report stresses the importance to economic and social policies to counteract the effects of adverse economic cycles when they arrive, while avoiding cuts in essential services.

It maintains that the uneven pace of economic recovery is undermining efforts to end hunger and malnutrition, with hunger increasing in many countries where the economy has slowed down or contracted, mostly in middle-income nations.

Moreover, economic slowdowns or downturns disproportionally undermine food security and nutrition where inequalities are greater. “Income inequality increases the likelihood of severe food insecurity, and this effect is 20 per cent higher for low income countries compared with middleincome countries.’’ the report spells out.

The Report concludes with guidance on what short and long term policies must be undertaken to safeguard food security and nutrition during episodes of economic turmoil or in preparation for them, such as integrating food security and nutrition concerns into poverty reduction efforts using pro-poor and inclusive structural transformations.

And the world and world humanity can be sure that no state nor government will do much to take any of these on boards and they will follow their own agenda and with it they will continue to pursue that ‘political will’, that says that it is okay to let people, babies and young children and vulnerable people and the all manners of poor perish away in suffering hunger, half hunger, malnutrition and all the rest. Because they are pursuing capitalism and they will keep on going unless the world humanity raises the question: the vital question: what kind of a political economics is capitalism, that, instead of, supporting, sustaining, nurturing and nourishing human existence, does everything to destroy it by inflicting high-cruelties, such as, poverty and hunger to the vast majority of humanity?:::ω.

|| Sunday: July 14: 2019 || ά. Prominent industry figures have used Envision Virgin Racing’s New York City Innovation Summit to call for businesses to ‘overtake’ the political roadblocks hampering climate action and ‘put their foot down’ to accelerate the response to the climate crisis. The event, hosted on Friday, July 12 at Brooklyn’s New Lab facility, is one of a number of initiatives held by the leading all-electric Formula E team, which was gearing for the race at the weekend’s New York City E-Prix in Red Hook.

Attended by an audience of more than 250, industry’s leading figures, this event brought together a range of business leaders and sustainability experts to discuss the role of the business sector in this area, in relation to the recent IPCC report, UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which states that the world has fewer than 12 years left to avoid climate catastrophe. The panellists, also, discussed the importance of ‘corporate purpose’ more widely in addressing society’s biggest challenges.

Hosted by broadcast journalist Mr Andrew Wilson, the Innovation Summit featured two sets of panellists with the first, including, Mr Franz Jung, the Vice President of Smart Mobility at Envision Group and the Chairman of the Board of Envision Virgin Racing, the Founder and CEO of Formula E Mr Alejandro Agag, Mr ‘Tiger’ Tyagarajan, the President and CEO of Genpact, Mr Mark T Maybury, the Chief Technology Officer of Stanley Black and Decker and CEO of The B Team Halla Tómasdóttir.

Meanwhile, the second panel saw distinguished professor and climate scientist Mr Michael Mann, the Director of the NYC Mayor’s Office for Sustainability Mr Mark Chambers, the CEO of The Climate Group Ms Helen Clarkson, the CEO of Rocky Mountain Institute Ms Jules Kortenhorst and Ms Antha Williams, the Head of Environmental Programmes at Bloomberg Philanthropies.

The event began with an opening address from the race team’s Managing Director Mr Sylvain Filippi, who said, “Two years ago, when the US had just pulled out of the Paris Climate Agreement, we held one of the team’s Innovation Summits and discussed the role of the business sector in addressing climate change. Now, two years on, we are here again but find ourselves in an increasingly volatile pathway and timeframe. Clearly, there has never been a more urgent case for accelerating global efforts. Our panellists today have shown that the business sector can and should, take the lead in this area. We have the technological solutions to address the challenge, so now we have to accelerate their roll-out as quickly as possible.

Ahead of the Formula E race weekend, where speed and gaining a few tenths of a second can be the difference between winning and losing; we’re asking the corporate sector to put its foot down in accelerating these issues, as, after all, the Formula E race is not the most important race we’re in, we’re in a Race Against Climate Change and it’s one we have to win.”

The Envision Virgin Racing, in conjunction with its Race Against Climate Change:RACC initiative and the support of its partners, has earned a reputation as the leading Formula E team for sustainability, using its independent status to address the wider energy transition topic beyond just the e-mobility element. Its RACC programme aims to accelerate the energy transition and help the world achieve the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.

The team has been involved in Formula E from the inception of the motorsport series and has since become one of the most successful ever teams with an impressive nine wins and 24 podiums to its name. It currently lies in third position in the championship standings heading into this weekend’s final two rounds of the New York City E-Prix.

Mr Franz Jung, Vice President of Smart Mobility at Envision Group and Chairman of the Board of Envision Virgin Racing, said, “Envision is committed to developing a sustainable future through its advanced technologies of AIoT, smart wind turbines, smart storage and batteries. As the majority owner of Envision Virgin Racing, Formula E is a perfect platform for Envision to demonstrate its brand identity, innovative technologies and vision of sustainability.”

Mr Alejandro Agag, the Founder and CEO of Formula E, said, ‘’The business sector, must, collectively rise to the challenge and lead a united front in the fight against climate change. We have to come together with a collaborative approach to accelerate the changes to prevent further and irreparable damage. That’s why at the ABB FIA Formula E Championship we’re playing our part with a platform to drive development and transfer technology, to see it trickle down from track to road. Formula E is a purpose-driven brand and is built on the foundations of taking action against climate change through developing clean modes of transportation.”

Mr ‘Tiger’ Tyagarajan, the President and CEO, Genpact, said, ‘’Businesses need to evolve into purpose-driven enterprises focused on not only creating a viable future for their business but, for all of humanity. They must leverage smart digital technologies to reinvent operating models that do more than just reimagine their own companies and industries. Forward-looking enterprises look at how they positively impact society as a whole. We join Envision Virgin Racing in its commitment to transform mobility and accelerate sustainability.”   

Mr Mark T. Maybury, Chief Technology Officer, Stanley Black and Decker, said, “Our world is changing at an alarming rate. We believe it is imperative for companies to play a strategic social responsibility role. At Stanley Black & Decker, we’re particularly focused on innovative products and processes that can enhance the lives of 500 million people as well as positively impacting the environment through our operations. For example, our solar powered drip irrigation system promises to transform the lives of 10,000 Indian farmers and our zero waste to landfill efforts have diverted around 20 million pounds of waste from landfill. We know, however, that we can’t do this alone and we need the support of corporations around the world to make a difference.”

Mr Michael Mann, Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Science at Penn State University, said, “I’m excited to be part of the team for Envision Virgin’s Race Against Climate Change. We must envision a renewably-powered future and what more exciting way is there to do that than watching the race cars of the future.”

Ms Helen Clarkson, the CEO, The Climate Group, said, “The next ten years will be marked by the urgent threat of climate change and carrying on with business as usual is not enough; we need to go further and faster to accelerate action. Businesses are already showing leadership through our global initiatives on electric vehicles, renewable power and energy productivity but, we need all major companies to follow suit with ambitious commitments to action today, not tomorrow, there’s no time to lose.”:::ω.

Visit Scotland: A Great Achievement by Fairmont St Andrews: A Gold Rating in Being Green and Sustainable

 

 

 

|| Sunday: July 14: 2019 || ά. Fairmont St Andrews has been Awarded a Gold rating from Green Tourism, the highest possible accreditation from the organisation, developed by Visit Scotland and Green Business UK. The aim of the Green Tourism Award is to reduce carbon footprint and utility, water and waste bills. Fairmont St Andrews was assessed by a qualified grading advisor against a set of criteria, covering a range of areas, including, energy and water efficiency, waste management, bio-diversity, community involvement among other elements.

The Hotel has achieved this rating for its use of a variety of strategic energy reduction tactics throughout the resort, such as, an incentivised collaborative asset performance programme:CAPP where the focus is to reduce energy consumption, providing an energy optimisation solution. Through the implementation of high efficiency equipment, such as, LED lighting, motion sensors to ensure lights switch off when not needed, retrofitted chilling units with new energy efficient models and modifications to the building management system, Fairmont St Andrews saw a total kilowatt hour reduction of 912,944kwh.

By properly utilising more efficient energy systems and through the optimisation of existing systems the five-star hotel reduced energy costs to see a saving of £86,449 in just one year. And, by any standard that is an impressive saving.

In waste reduction, the Hotel sought to achieve zero-waste to landfill status as a five-star luxury hotel: in January 2017, Fairmont St Andrews joined the Clean the World initiative committing to recycle all unused bathroom soaps and hygiene products. The hotel recycles circa 250kg of products per month, which are, then, donated to various humanitarian organisations around the world.

Additionally, the resort has reached a ‘zero-waste to landfill’ status by strategically utilising contractors and bespoke waste services, such as, Clean the World to ensure any non-recyclable by-products are reused sustainably.

All single use plastics in the staff canteen have been replaced with reusable china, saving £5,000 per year, as well as, reducing waste.  Water cooler stations are available in all staff areas and recyclable glass bottled water is offered in conference areas for guests.

By strategically utilising local contractors and bespoke waste-removal services to ensure that any non-recyclable by-products are reused, waste removal costs dropped from £82,181 in 2017 to £36,612 in 2018 contributing to our zero waste to landfill status.  

Eco-friendly coffee pods: Fairmont St Andrews partnered with Eden Project to provide plastic free fully compostable bio-degradable coffee capsules, sharing information about the fully bio-degradable capsules in each room, which has attracted a lot of positive feedback from guests.

Mr John Keating, the General Manager of Fairmont St. Andrews said of the achievement, “Fairmont St Andrews is proud of our long-term intentional commitment to sustainability and dedication to ensuring our five-star resort has the smallest possible impact on the environment. 

Through our conscious commitment to protecting our planet, we hope to be an example to all luxury resorts, taking intentional steps to have a deliberate positive impact on our world. Not only are we taking steps to reduce our carbon footprint but, we are, also, making the effort to educate our guests and the local community on how we all can contribute in small ways to the betterment of the planet.”

Capitalism’s Lowest High-Cruelty Is Poverty: The United Nations Can Report About It But It Is Up to the People Who Are Subjected to Capitalism’s All High Cruelties to Rise Up to Tear Them All Down: New United Nations Poverty Report Presents Vast Inequalities Between and Among Countries: To End All These Horrors the World Requires to Establish Building-Block Foundational Human Rights

 

 

 

|| Thursday: July 11: 2019 || ά. There are vast inequalities across countries and among the poorer segments of societies, according to a new United Nations Report, published on Thursday. This is not news in the rich-dominated media outlets, that are engaged in talking about the puddle-circus of the market and the rich, who have nothing better to do other than creating an obnoxious farcical circus about while capitalism ravages on all the poverty-devastated peoples, who happen to be the vast majority of the human race. Following the news and media outlets of this world, one would think that the world has become a heaven on earth where there is nothing to report and the educated are busy consuming, what they are able to rob off, who are not interested about anything else or about anyone else and the educated elite, that have found out that they can make politics out of ignorance so that out of them are rising all the obnoxious leaders and parties, that want to make everything patriotic and supremacist of whatever kind suits them.

However, the United Nations can not resolve capitalism’s high cruelties, high brutalities, high barbarities and high depravities because it is a weakly construction, that has passed its ‘sell by date’. The world can not get out of these capitalism’s savageries, if, the world’s very working and non-working poor are left to the mercy of the directing, herding and manipulating elites and their media and press outlets and the political parties and forces, that are absolutely committed to serve the rich while the poor keep on serving their live-in-life-sentences. In America, the media outlets have nothing to report while the fact is this that only 27% Americans ever go through a degree level education, meaning 73% of Americans have not been given the right to do so and there the media outlets seem to be busy about myths and mythology making and they still have the energy to wonder why Mr Donald Trump is the President of America! And, the fact is this that, this United States of America houses the most poverty-devastated majority with the most entrenched and ingrained inequality where sociology of evil is at its high-existence but the media goes about reporting the circus, that these grandees of these two mutually replaceable elite parties, debating on the television, as, if, they are going to change America from its malaise, that capitalism has been increasingly inflicting of the vast majority of the poor of that richest of countries!

In the United Kingdom the same is happening where the Conservative Party Government has been creating the sociology of squalors and fermenting the sociology of evil where everything has been falling apart but in the media there is the same circus and there the Party have ‘jacked’ the agenda and two of its own are now running the revolting circus. The entire world is the same: the elites are going about in behaviours, conducts and actions, as, if, the world has become, literally, a heaven on earth where everything is worked out and there nothing requires fixing! Capitalism is ravaging and savaging humanity and the world has become a Rome where the Neros are playing their flutes. It is time minds of humanity across the nations and peoples and the earth, particularly, the youth, to begin to ask the question: are we living on a heaven on earth or is it time that we register the fact that this earth has been made into a hell by capitalism and we go about seeking to gather forces to bring this to an end. Poverty is not news: capitalism creates poverty and distributes it. Inequality is no news in this system because capitalism creates and sustains and continually increases inequality. Education is not universal because capitalism likes folks when they are down there without eyes, ears and minds so that it has built that wall and kept the majority out of education across the world. This is time to wake up: each and every soul: to stop and ask and follow the path till the answers walk with us.

However, The 2019 Global Multi-dimensional Poverty Index:MPI from the UN Development Programme:UNDP, shows that, in the 101 countries studied, 31 low income, 68 middle income and two high income, 01.3 billion people are multi-dimensionally poor, which means that poverty is defined not simply by income but, by a number of indicators, including, poor health, poor quality of work and the threat of violence.

The Report states that action against poverty is needed in all developing regions It notes that sub-saharan Africa and South Asia are home to the largest proportion of poor people, some 84.5 per cent. Within these regions, the level of inequality is described as massive: in sub-saharan Africa it ranges from 06.3 per cent in South Africa to 091.9 per cent in South Sudan. The disparity in South Asia is from 0.8 per cent in the Maldives to 55.9 per cent in Afghanistan.

Many of the countries studied in the Report where is found extensive internal levels of inequality: in Uganda, for example, the incidence of multi-dimensional poverty in the different provinces, ranges from six per cent in Kampala, to 96.3 per cent in Karamoja.

Over half of the 01.3 billion people, identified as poor, some 663 million, are children under the age of 18 and around a third, some 428 million, are under the age of 10. The vast majority of these children, around 85 per cent, live in South Asia and sub-saharan Africa, split, roughly, equally between the two regions. The picture is, particularly, dire in Burkina Faso, Chad, Ethiopia, Niger and South Sudan, where 90 per cent or more of children under the age of 10, are considered to be multi-dimensionally poor.

The Report identifies 10 countries, with a combined population of around two billion people, to illustrate the level of poverty reduction and all of them have shown statistically significant progress towards achieving Goal one. The fastest reductions were seen in India, Cambodia and Baangladesh.

Speaking ahead of the launch, Mr Pedro Conceição, the Director of the Human Development Report Office at UNDP, told UN News, ‘’The Report gives a more comprehensive picture of poverty and gives an indication of where to target policies, that, may, address the dimensions in which people are deprived, whether it’s education, health or other aspects, that could enable people to be lifted out of poverty, if, these investments are made.”

However, the Report notes that no single measure is a sufficient guide to both inequality and multi-dimensional poverty and that studies, such as, the MPI, Human Development Index and Gini co-efficient, which measures countries’ wealth income distribution, can each contribute important and distinctive information for policy action to effectively reduce poverty.:::ω.

The Distorteddia Banks and the Pseudo-Currencies Must Come to an End: Only the European Union Has the Political Will Organisational Prowess and Institutional Systems to Ensure That That Happens So That Its Leadership Will Force the Rest of the World to Follow Suit

 

 

|| Thursday: July 04: 2019 || ά. Rousseau has not erred in beginning with the social contract as the basis of what is called ‘civilisation’, that is created by a grid of civic societies; however, he has failed to realise that until and unless there exists a ‘good state’ in individuals, families, communities, agencies and organisations and in the wider society, states and governments can not come to exist for the common good, there can not be ‘contracts’ of any sort among and between ‘parties’ simply because unless and until parties share the common value-ground of that ‘being in ‘good state’ so that they intend, imply and commit to remain in that good state so that they shall within the duration of the contract abide by their respective duties, responsibilities, obligations and liabilities. For this contract to be meaningful and to be taken as solid and legally enforceable mechanism this ‘good state’ is a-priori. Otherwise, no contract can take place because parties do not share that same common value-ground, which shows that the entire existence of social contracts can not be sustained until and unless these two criteria: good state and sharing the common value-ground created by the fact that parties share the good state, are fulfilled.

And here we find that, despite reaching a great point of understanding Rousseau did fail. Civilisation and civic societies do not arise because we have social contracts among and between individuals, agencies and organisations and among and between individuals and agencies and organisations on the one hand and, on the other, their states and governments. The vague sense and idea of existing in a civilisation, that subscribes to societies being civic does not arise because we have created a ‘state’, that is good state but because that good state is an inalienable and inseparable part of what it means to be and do human. Humanical view of humanity, as per humanics is concerned, is this that humanity is an infinity of goodness nanocromised in the finite so that it is nothing but an infinity of goodness seeking to unfold itself.

This is why this good state or common value-ground or social morality-infused ecology or, for short, social morality exists in humanity because it is so in its core and foundation: it is an infinity of goodness unfolding itself in which it seeks nothing but a state of civilisation, created by a grid of civic societies, only which can and does enable this humanity to exist as humanity naturale, which is the workable expression of what constitute ‘good state’. This good state or this social morality is such that it does not enter into or temper over personal morality but takes the essence of the ecology of what morality is and applies it to ensure that common good is sought, attempted and achieved for civilisation and civic societies are concerned with that common good of all members of any given society or all societies forming that civilisation.

Therefore, we arrive at where Rousseau went wrong: in failing to ascertain that that good state or social morality exists with humanity as it is an infinite state of goodness seeking to unfold itself and because of this any and all contracts can take place. Good state must exist and it does exist, that enable all parties to have a state where they can and do enter into contracts, social or otherwise. However, the development of contract laws show us something profound in the continual erosion of humanity in the process of dehumanisation of humanity. Were societies and communities to exist in this good state humanity would not require to have ‘written’ contracts for parties to respect for everyone would have been in good state and so they would respect whatever was agreed. In this, because humanity had fallen away from being humanity naturale, it had entered a ‘not good state’ because as a consequence of dehumanisation there appeared the resultant: loss of liberty and appearance of inequality because humanity had fallen into subscribing to ownership and money and the powers they generate and confer, which created two groups of humans: the powerful and the powerless and in this antagonistic set up the sociology of evil is the working order, that is continually eroding, destroying and erasing away the good state and the very humanity naturale; the sociology of evil is the exact opposite of what good state or humanity naturale is. In that, therefore, appeared the need to have ‘codified laws’ because before they were necessary there were already laws in existence, the laws of natural justice, that humanity had fallen away from, so to enforce or force ‘parties’ to accept their duties, responsibilities, obligations and liabilities’ and this can be done through using the rule of or the power of the law. In a way, the very existence of the entire branch of contract laws suggest and stands as evidence of this humanity’s fall from being humanity naturale and into being subjected to the merciless pounding of dehumanisation of humanity in which sociology of evil erases and erodes away our very humanity.

Getting back to this good state: This takes us back to the dawn of humanity where we find this humanity finding itself on earth, that it had not acquired by any of these means: it did not conquer it, bought it or won it. Humanity found itself on this earth. Prior to that the earth was not owned by anything or anyone other than it was part of mother nature and of the entire Universe. And, humanity found itself there while it found that it had that good state already ingrained in it in such a way that humanity and good state meant the same thing. This is enshrined, enhanced and ingrained in humanity, for which we can find support from this fact that it had found the earth, as, if, it was ‘given’ to it or ‘endowed’ to it as a gift of mother nature. This endowment of that gift was the frame or form for this humanity to fill with the contents of that good state. Therefore, this endowment, readers are requested not to connect the world ‘endowment’ to any religious interpretations, ‘forces’ or rather, puts humanity under an imperative to accept the ‘terms and conditions, grounds and ground-works, systems mechanisms and protocols’ of that gift, that humanity can not but carry on following and discharging. This can be seen from this example: a woman is heading somewhere through the wilderness and suddenly she comes to a spot where she finds a little baby, left abandoned in a terribly bad state. If, this woman is a humanity naturale, it can be guaranteed that she will pick this child up and will do everything in her power to keep the child alive and well and protect that child and its well-being and welfare. This child was our Mother Earth, that was our endowment and that endowment binds us, like this woman, with a covenant, that, what is given to you, ought you, should you and must you keep it as you found it, protect it, nurture it, support it, foster it and send it forward as you have been given it. And, as, Medicine would put it: And not to harm it.

This is, therefore, not a contract but a covenant. Again, readers are requested not to relate the covenant with any religious interpretations. This covenant, humanity has found, it had been entered into and it had to respect that because it was the definition of what it is to be human and humanity: that it ought to exist as and in that good state for it is a working example, working illustration of what good state is or can be. Now, this gift, this endowment, creating this covenant for humanity was such that without respecting this covenant humanity found it could not exist as humanity naturale or as an expression of that good state while mother nature has left the infinity of resources, that humanity would require to exist on earth so long they make ‘use’ of them following the terms and conditions of that covenant or, in other words, that humanity ought to exist in harmony with what we have called natural justice, which was where humanity had begun from. Therefore, at the dawn, humanity found itself closest to natural justice while there existed liberty and equality among and between all humans. This beginning with the gift of the endowment, under the covenant, that was already created and humanity was entered into it by virtue of its construction as an infinity of goodness existing as and in an eternal good state for only that shall always ensure that they are able to exist and flourish as humanity naturale.

Therefore, the only thing, that respect this endowment and covenant is to seek to ensure that there are created civic societies in an overarching architecture and organisation, creating a practical and ever-going ‘symphony’ of all civic societies, that is called a civilisation. A civilisation is the highest expression of the human condition in socio-cultural, socio-political and socio-spiritual expressions of a fountain, that is created, sustained and fed by all the civic societies working in tandem to maintain that state of being good or that state of homeostasis or equilibrium. Only in such a state humanity can and does exist as humanity naturale; closest to natural justice. Therefore, there exists no ownership or anything, that symbolises or represents ownership but exists belongingship so that there comes to exist liberty and, with it, equality because this conversion eradicates the two opposing groups of humans: the powerful and the powerless so that all humans are now nothing but just humanity naturale, standing at the same ground and sharing the same state of being: all belonging to the mother earth equally and at all times and all being at liberty. Civic societies are the means and civilisation is the resultant of that human endeavour to create conditions, that take them closest to natural justice so that they can exist as humanity naturale.

This is why and this how humanity finds that, regardless of where or under what conditions or circumstances they exist, regardless of how challenging or hostile the reality is, this good state exists at all times and at all places, in the largest majority of all populace on earth. This good state or the common value-ground can not but exist for humanity to keep on existing as humanity naturale without which there can not exist any rule of law of any kind. Therefore, it is not a product of social contract that we have this good state without which there can not exist any contract but it is an expression of what humanity is: an infinity of goodness seeking to exist and continue to exist as such and to enable it to do so mother nature has created this humanity as this, as an infinite goodness to seek and strive to bring about that infinite goodness into existence and to support humanity’s efforts on this path of reaching natural justice mother nature has entered us into this covenant, that has all the mechanics to support, guide and enable us to bring about a civilisation with civic societies, that are run by natural justice, that can be seen at work as the rule of law.

On this good state, therefore, societies sought to bring about structures, systems, mechanisms, protocols and procedures in an architecture to advance their goal to reach civic societies, where societies have reached such a state of development that, for the first time in human progression, they have developed ‘the agency or body’ to run themselves. Until this happens, we see that the highest body, that humanity has created to run the public affairs management system is the state. There is no larger body or agency in this world but this state. This state arises not because there is ‘social contract’ but it arises because people, humanity as individuals, as families, as agencies and organisations, as communities reside, in the greatest majority in that good state and they want to ensure that they are able to continue existing in this good state for which there is the necessity to create the sustaining system and mechanism to establish the rule of law to ensure that societies are run in civic ways and that the rule of law goes about taking and leading humanity towards reaching natural justice. In this we find that the state comes to existence, therefore, for the service of advancing this common good for all humanity and because of this the people subscribe to it. So long states serve this purpose they have all the social moral ‘call’ upon all their citizens to support them but, as, if and when they fail in doing this or they go about doing the opposite or something else the people have no ‘obligation’ to support such states. Yet, these states are not organisations of societies themselves, which was what societies were seeking to get to and the development and progression of these states means that they will come to metamorphose and become bodies of societies themselves, which are directly run by the members of these societies by themselves. This will happen when societies reach humanics.

However, therefore, the highest body or authority in any country, established, supported and maintained by the people, is that state. There is no other and there can not be two different sets of states for the same purpose within a country. There is one and only the one state by which human affairs management system seeks to create, run, develop and maintain the rule of law, that must arise out of the consensus of its people subscribing to its lawful validity. Therefore, that state is organised in Executive, Legislature and Judiciary with all other vital parts so that, a state has, in addition to all these, a Central Bank, that, among other things, creates, runs and maintains a national currency, a national banking and financial clearing system and so on. There, however, can not exist two sets of states, two sets of executives, two sets of legislatures, two sets of central banks, to sets of currencies for that would jeopardise the very idea of the state working and existing to support and nurture the common good. This is simply unnecessary, unworkable and absurd. Therefore, it is vital for the rule of law that the state is and it remains as the ‘regulatory’ body to conduct ‘the rule of law’. Here, we can elaborate by this example as to why that would be counter-productive, chaotic and anarchic: whatever happens in relation to the state and all its organs are ‘ultimately regulated’ by the people, where the society is democratic so that the state and all its organs have the ‘approval of its people’ by which it keeps on going forward while any company, agency of business, trade and commerce, for example, do not have that mechanism whereby they are and they can be regulated by the people, who are the citizen of the country in which these agencies work. Furthermore, despite their being part of the economic system these agencies have their own agenda and own aims and objectives, all of which boil down to this simple fact that they are seeking to make profit for their owners and shareholders. If, they fail in achieving this they shall cease to exist because their owners and shareholders will lose their investment and move away and the company will disappear. Because of this duality of loyalties they can not be let to be their own judge, jury and executioner but they, must be, at all times, regulated by the highest regulatory body in the land, the state or, in other words, by the rule of the law, that arises out of people’s participation, involvement, engagement and approval of the state while these companies do not arise by seeking to get or getting that approval. Therefore, the state must ensure that they are regulated by the state and the rule of law.

And, in short, our earlier discussion about the good state, these agencies of business, trade and commerce have the ultimate determining criteria, that they are not to serve the people and the country but serve their owners and shareholders and for them they must make profit. Because of this these agencies can not be advancing or subscribing to that good state for the good state simplified can be said to be the common good while these agencies are not for common good nor for good state but to advance individual good for their owners and shareholders contrary to the common good. Therefore, the state must ensure that they remain within the law and are required to do their business and activities bearing in mind and serving the common good by the and under the law. Unless this is done, the states tell their citizens that they have accepted the foxes to guard and look after the poultry farms and the people of the country should go to sleep. The citizen of the country can not go to sleep knowing the foxes are now the care takers of the poultry of the country! This can not be accepted and acceptable.     

Having set this out, now we come to the pseudonomic development of capitalism because of the invention of the entire range of the distorteddia conglomerate, where belong many and varying types of agencies, all of which, share the same criteria: that they all are part of the ‘variables’, that have worked together to convert capitalism into pseudonomics and through which these distorteddia conglomerate rob away enormous amount of money, value and worth out of the real economies and out of the real people’s real value and worth and pocket them for their own benefits and enjoyments while these very people, who created these values or worth suffer the consequences of these robberies. The entire world and all its states have failed miserably to regulate these distorteddia conglomerate so that they are now dictating and directing the states and their governments and, thus, the peoples across the world as to how human existence must be conducted: to keep on consuming and making profit while this ever going consumptions destroy the earth and bring an end to the entire human existence and the entire ecology and web of life on earth.

These distorteddia conglomerate, some of them, such as, google and apple and the like, have been let to become larger than the largest states; in fact, they have become their own states, that have declared the entire world and the globe under their jurisdiction in which it is they, who are the law unto themselves. Take an example, even, the states and governments, have not got their own banking or financial clearing houses so that, like all other people and organisations, they have to use banks to get transactions done. So do every individual of the world so do all other organisations and agencies. While this is the norm these distorteddia outlets have been let to develop their own ‘banks’ or ‘clearing houses’, such as, google pay’ or apple pay. Why on earth any business organisation be allowed to develop such agencies in house? This takes them out of normal laws, regulations and functioning mechanisms and the states and the public miss out on many vital benefits: that their laws are not followed by these in house banks and they are not regulated like all other banks and clearing houses are and that this means that the states and the public do not get the ‘revenues’, that they get from the normal banks and financial clearing houses. What is worse, this way, these distorteddia agencies saves enormous amount of money for they did not have to pay any charges to the banks for conducting their transactions and with these all states and all peoples are robbed off much revenues, that can make seismic difference in the state of the human condition in every nation on earth. This can not go on and it must come to an end. The world must get its act together and stripe these distorteddia off their ‘own banks’. Things like google pay and apple pay and the like must come to an end for otherwise there runs two parallel banking system in which one set is run and regulated by the states while the other no one does so, so that they just do business however way they like. This can not be accepted and acceptable. These companies must be forced to either break up and separate their ‘own pay bank’ from the rest of the company so that these newly created banking agencies come under the normal regulatory frameworks of all the states so that they are not only regulated but the world’s peoples and all states receive the revenues from the worth and value they transact. Or they should be forced to stop running their own ‘unlawful’ banks by themselves. Our editorial puts the European Union in the frame. It is this body in the world, that does have all it takes to deal with this fundamental and vital important issue and only this body can do something like this and once the European Union has done it the entire world shall follow suit. Humanity does not require super-state, owned and run by some owners and shareholders! This is not the rule of law. It is time this comes to an end and it must do so at the shortest possible time. European Union must rise to the challenge to bring the world’s distorteddia conglomerate under the rule of law so that the entire world and its all states follow suit. Peoples of the world have been robbed off by these distorteddia conglomerate long enough; it is time they get their dues: the revenues from them and that they are regulated by the rule of law of their states, that the peoples themselves regulate.

Now we come to the second question relating to banks, finance, currencies and maintenance and running of them. The entire world had fallen in desperate sleep while every Arthur and Ahmed and Emma and Mbamba and Patels or Takimoto started getting their own, what they called, ‘crypto currencies’, which are at best, unlawful and, at worse, allowing robbers the keys to all Central Banks of the world. Yet, there appears so many of these pseudo-currencies seeking to conduct business, as, if, their initiators have become states of their own central banks with their own laws and rules, about which neither the world nor its states or the peoples of the world have any say! In this ‘gold rush’ recently declared its greed, another distorteddia conglomerate agency, facebook, that they are going into these pseudo-currency. This pseudo-currency is a grave danger to the entire world and world’s public affairs management systems, all economies of the world, all countries, states, peoples and nations of the world, all individual human beings and all agencies and organisations of the world and this is one of the largest vehicles of committing and advancing pseudonomics robberies in grand scale. This has gone on for far too long and the world has very little time but to act and bring this to a ‘Termination’. Pseudo-currencies must be made illegal to operate. Sure. Pure. Simple.

Here again, we invite the European Union to take urgent and immediate actions to bring this entire venture of pseudonomics to an end. Because together with these in house banks and these pseudo-currencies these distorteddia conglomerate are becoming so powerful that it shall threaten the very rule of law and lawful business, trade and commerce in the world while the pseudonomic robbers will have their field day and, consequence to all these, the states and governments and all the peoples of the world are going to suffer more and more for pseudonomics is killing the economies of the world and they will keep on going and they will keep on getting bolder and bolder and rob more and more. It is time the world and the European Union wake up and it is up to the later to show and inspire the former how to do it. This is time these pseudonomic vehicles are sent into their termination centre. Period. Enough is enough.

These systems make it possible to completely eliminate polluting emissions at sea and in all bodies of water throughout the world, guaranteeing safe and ecological boating.

Because of the experience gained along the entire energy supply chain as a system integrator, with over 600 MWh of battery energy storage solutions installed all over the world and in the marine sector with customised electric boating propulsion and on-board power generation systems, Nidec ASI has been able to develop this new solution to complete the range of on-board energy storage products on offer.

The innovative batteries launched by Nidec ASI differ from those currently available on the market because of a number of technological features, including, the Single Large String, a large module, which is better suited to making up large battery packs and significantly simplifying system set-up.

In addition to offering greater battery efficiency, durability, safety and performance, the Single Large String will, also, make it possible to reduce the number of modules in each battery pack and the number of DC:DC and DC:AC converters. This will simplify wiring and installation on different types of vessels and facilitate the use of hybrid propulsion systems with clear benefits in terms of weight and volume reduction while, also, allowing greater flexibility in naval architecture.

Also, for this solution, Nidec ASI focuses on safety. In fact, the batteries are fitted with control systems on each individual cell and detectors to quickly identify any signs of degeneration.

"Presenting this innovative solution once again places us among the forerunners at the helm of a more sustainable development model, committed to offering innovations for transporting people and goods based on the use of renewable energy sources and a reduction in pollutant emissions. 

The Marine industry can play an essential role in this progress, converting to electric boating, which can not be separated from the spread in new-generation storage systems. Hence our decision to present our first Nidec ASI battery system, which responds to the growing demand for cutting-edge solutions." said Mr Dominique Llonch, CEO of Nidec ASI and the Chair of Nidec Industrial Solutions.

The new Nidec batteries, together with customised solutions developed for other sectors, such as, the Ultra-Fast Charger for quickly recharging electric vehicles launched last year, represent another important step forward in the company’s corporate strategy, which aims to be a leading player in the process of energy transition and the affirmation of sustainable mobility.

Nidec Industrial Solutions:NIS, the industrial platform of the Nidec group, offers complete electrical systems and brings together the products and services of Nidec ASI, Avtron Industrial Automation, Nidec Industrial Automation and Motortecnica. It offers customised solutions throughout the world for a wide range of industrial applications. Its reference markets are oil and gas, traditional and renewable energy, steel, naval and industrial automation markets.

Renewable Energy Is Powering the World But Political Inaction on Sustainable Energy Policies to Blame for the Lack of Progress on UN Climate and Development Goals

 

 

|| Tuesday: June 18: 2019 || ά.  Renewable energy is increasingly powering the world but, erratic policy making is holding the sector back from its potential contribution to cutting carbon pollution and meeting climate and development targets, according to REN21’s Renewables 2019 Global Status Report:GSR, released today. The Report confirms that for the fourth consecutive year, more renewable power capacity was installed than fossil fuel and nuclear power combined, 100 gigawatts:GW of solar PV alone was added in 2018, enough to meet more than 25% of electricity demand in France.

But a lack of ambitious and sustained policies to drive decarbonisation across the heating, cooling and transport sectors means countries are not maximising the benefits of the transition, including, cleaner air and energy security for their people. “A key breakthrough could occur, if, countries cut their fossil fuel subsidies, which are propping up dirty energy.” says Mr Rana Adib, the Executive Secretary, REN21. Ambitious policy and regulatory frameworks are critical to creating favourable and competitive conditions, allowing renewable energy to grow and displace more expensive and carbon-emitting fuels.

Forty countries have undertaken some level of fossil fuel subsidy reform since 2015 but, these subsidies continued to exist in 112 countries in 2017, with at least 73 countries providing subsidies of over USD100 million each. Estimated total global subsidies for fossil fuel consumption were USD300 billion in 2017, an 11% increase from 2016.

The Report finds:

::: Solar PV and wind are now mainstream options in the power sector. Over 90 countries had more than 01 GW of renewable power capacity installed and 30 countries had more than 10 GW. At least nine countries generated more than 20% of their electricity with solar PV and wind. These are: Denmark, Uruguay, Ireland, Germany, Portugal, Spain, Greece, UK, Honduras.

::: Global renewable energy uptake no longer depends on just a few countries. In 2018 the global deployment of renewables kept up a steady pace overall with the European Union’s roll-out slightly up and China’s annual installations and investment declining compared to year prior. This shows renewable energy is a strong, global powerhouse.

::: Cities are increasingly becoming strong drivers in renewable energy deployment, adopting some of the most ambitious targets for renewables globally. In numerous cases, these commitments and actions have exceeded national and state:provincial initiatives. More than 100 cities, ranging from Nairobi:Kenya and Dar es Salaam:Tanzania to Auckland:NZ, Stockholm:Sweden and Seattle:USA use, at least, 70% renewable electricity and, at least, 50 cities put in place renewable energy targets covering power, heating and cooling and transport.

There is a huge opportunity for countries to drive action by expanding the transition to the heating, cooling and transport sectors. Renewables supply more than 26% of global electricity, however, they provide only 10% of the energy used for heating and cooling and just over 03% for transport. This imbalance between energy sectors is, in large part, due to insufficient or unstable policy support. The number of countries with a policy for renewables in heat actually declined.

Despite insufficient support, initiatives in transport, heating and cooling sectors are being implemented. Sustainable bio-fuels, EVs and fuel economy policies are reducing overall fossil fuel dependency in the transport sector. Ambitious policies, such as, Brazil’s 27% blending mandate for ethanol and California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard Programme, demonstrate renewables’ contribution to the transport sector.

Heating and cooling policies include building energy codes, renewable heat incentives and mandates and indirect approaches like carbon pricing. Carbon pricing remains acutely under-utilised. By the end of 2018, only 44 national governments, 21 states:provinces and seven cities had implemented carbon pricing policies, covering just 13% of global CO2 emissions.

“With the countries needing to come back with more ambitious climate targets in 2020, this Report shows there are an array of opportunities to scale up action and improve people’s lives by extending the benefits of the energy transition throughout the economy.” says REN21 Chair, Mr Arthouros Zervos.

About the REN21 and the Renewables Global Status Report:GSR: Made up of a worldwide community of players from governments, inter-governmental and non-governmental organisations, industry, science and academia, REN21 is a global network, that provides high-quality, up todate information to shape the energy debate. REN21 is committed to a sustainable energy future. Building on knowledge and data, REN21 changes the way we think about renewables in turn informing decisions and shaping the future.

First published in 2005, the GSR provides a comprehensive overview of what is happening in the renewable energy sector. This year’s Report focuses on 2018 developments and trends by markets, investments, and policies worldwide. Now in its 15th year, this annual report has become the industry standard for renewables. It is built on data and information provided by REN21’s network of more than 900 contributors world-wide. Collectively, the information is used to shape debates to push thinking and action on renewables.:::ω.

The Decarbonisation of Our Economy Transport and Heating Systems Can All Be Achieved Through Existing Technology But That Has to Include Onshore Wind If We Are to Decarbonise by 2050: Scottish Power’s Whitelee Windfarm Stands Testament to This Reality

 

 

|| Monday: June 10: 2019 || ά. A decade on from the opening of the UK’s largest onshore windfarm, new research shows that it has generated enough clean, green energy to provide almost 90% of total annual household electricity consumed by Scottish households and businesses. An independent Report into Whitelee, which lies on the outskirts of Glasgow, has concluded that the windfarm is a national success story and highlights onshore wind as an essential part of the country’s generation mix in the drive to decarbonise power, transport and heat as the march towards net zero continues.

Scottish Power Renewables, which owns and operates the windfarm along with almost 40 others around the UK, called on the Government to bring forward legislation, that supports the UK Committee on Climate Change’s target to deliver net zero emissions by 2050 when compared to 1990 levels. Ms Lindsay McQuade, CEO of Scottish Power Renewables, said, “We know that renewable energy generation needs to quadruple, if, we are to deliver on net zero.  We, also, know that onshore wind is the cheapest form of green energy and, therefore, should be part of Scotland and the UK’s, low carbon, cost effective electricity system.’’

“If, we are to meet the target of net zero by 2050, our ambition has to be backed by political will and underpinned by legislation. Since the passing of the Climate Change Act in 2008, a number of progressive policy measures have been put in place, that has enabled Scotland to become coal-free. Working with industry and government, the same approach is now needed to ensure we can continue to invest in much needed renewable generation and, thereby, achieve this objective and support action to tackle the climate emergency facing us.’’ Ms McQuade said.

‘’Whitelee is a great example of what effective policy can deliver.  It’s a national success story. Every year it produces the equivalent clean energy to power each and every electric vehicle currently in the UK, preventing over five million tonnes of carbon emissions had this energy come from fossil fuels. The decarbonisation of our economy, transport and heating systems can all be achieved through existing technology but that has to include onshore wind, if, we are to decarbonise by 2050.”

The Report into Whitelee, carried out by independent energy consultants BVG Associates, also, found:

Whitelee’s total generation to date has been enough to provide 87% of the current annual household electricity consumption of Scotland

Whitelee produces enough energy per year to power all the electrical vehicles in the UK

A single revolution of the blades on one Whitelee turbine produces enough energy to fully charge over 300 mobile phones

Whitelee has saved over five million tonnes of carbon emissions, if, compared to generation from fossil fuel

Each day Whitelee can offset enough CO2 emissions to offset two days’ worth of each and every domestic flight to and from Heathrow and Gatwick airports

Whitelee produces annual CO2 savings equivalent to 40,000 football pitches full of trees

Whitelee, which represents a total lifetime investment of £01.5bn by Scottish Power Renewables, also, makes an essential contribution to the Scottish and UK economy. The study shows that over the life of the windfarm, it will boost the UK economy by over £01 billion, with over £790 million in Scotland.

It, also, supported over 4,000 jobs during its peak years of construction and sustains around 600 jobs every year through the operation and maintenance of the windfarm, creating the equivalent earnings in Scotland of £512 million, £670m UK-wide, over the lifetime of the windfarm.

To celebrate 10 years of Whitelee’s operation, a free family fun day is being held at the site’s popular visitor centre and café, which expects to welcome its 750,000th visitor through the door. Currently 200,000 people visit the site each year to explore the 130 kilometres of trails on foot, bike or horse.

To date, the windfarm’s community benefit funds has disbursed over £09 million to local projects and  further community benefit of over £14.5 million will be paid over the site’s remaining lifetime. 

Whitelee Windfarm is the UK's largest onshore windfarm, located on Eaglesham Moor, just 20 minutes from Glasgow. Owned and operated by leading wind energy developer Scottish Power, its 215 turbines range up to 140m in height and have been successfully providing clean green renewable energy for almost a decade. Its significance to Scotland and its contribution to achieving ambitious climate change targets can not be underestimated. At peak, it can generate 539 megawatts of electricity, enough to power just under 300,000 homes or all the households in Glasgow. The site, which is accessible to the public, has an interactive visitor centre and is well known for its 130 kilometres of trails available to be explored on foot, by cycle or horseback. It welcomes thousands of visitors each year and will celebrate its 10th birthday this summer with a family fun-day for local people. For more information visit scottishpower.co.uk/whitelee

Established in 2008, the UK Committee on Climate Change advises the UK government on targets for cutting emissions.  Its Report, published this month, advised that the UK should completely eliminate net greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.  It, also, urged that Scotland set the target five years ahead of the UK as a whole, given its larger landmass and more potential sites for carbon capture.

Net-zero is the point where the same volume of greenhouse gases is being emitted as is being absorbed through offsetting techniques like forestry.

Procurement and Finance Executives Anticipate Negative Effects From Geopolitical Issues and Many Are Preparing for Challenges They Bring

This Is Intelligence

 

 

 

|| Thursday: June 06: 2019 || ά. A new Report, ‘What’s Now and Next for Finance and Procurement’, by The Economist Intelligence Unit and sponsored by Basware, has been released yesterday. Conducted in February and March 2019, the Report is based on the survey responses of more than 400 procurement and finance professionals in the U.S, UK, Germany and France. The Report examines which emerging dimensions of three broad trends, shifting trade dynamics, automation and digitisation, finance and procurement executives expect will affect their companies most, what their impact will be and how they have prepared.

A key trend, that surfaced was the concern of diminished company performance due to current global trade dynamics, namely, due to increased procurement costs and greater supply-chain complexity. When it comes to expectations regarding future trade trends, the two most widely expected to have the greatest impact within the next two years are the UK’s Exiting the EU trade negotiations, 23% and the escalation of the US-China trade war, 21%. One respondent, even, expressed his fear of the lack of free markets in 10 years, seeing these trends as undercutting the progress made to date for globalisation.

Another source of concern is national barriers to digital trade, including, censorship, localisation measures and privacy regulation, which was cited by 13% of respondents. Respondents expect trade dynamics to have negative effects, most commonly, an increase in procurement costs, 35% and greater supply-chain complexity, 29%.

In preparation for these emerging dynamics in international trade, many respondents have focused on ensuring their internal processes and information gathering is as robust as possible. The most common preparation, that companies have taken to meet the challenges, arising from changes in global trade is to review internal controls and procedures, 39%.

“With trade dynamics in constant flux, it’s encouraging to see that finance and procurement executives are indeed taking proactive steps to avoid negative consequences to every extent possible.” Says Mr Klaus Andersen, CTO and Interim CEO, Basware. “Forward-thinking companies are seeking greater transparency in their supply chains.’’

“Basware is here to help companies gain visibility and control of their entire source-to-pay process, which enables companies to navigate trade complexities and changes.” says Mr Sami Peltonen, the Vice President of Products and Business Management of North America, Basware.

The Report, also, highlighted trends in talent and automation. Digitisation will reduce overall costs but, also, intensify competition for talent, respondents believe. Just under a third, 32%, expect digitisation to bring down costs, the second most commonly expected impact but, almost, as many, 31%, agree that recruiting employees with specialist digital skills will be critical to unlocking digital transformation in their organisations. Another trend is to train existing staff to expect and adapt to change.

Procurement and finance executives expect that the automation of various finance and procurement processes will have the biggest impact on their organisation, more so than pseudo intelligence driven decision-making. The Humanion calls that pseudo intelligence, because it is a grand lie, that the distorteddia conglomerate have invented and implanted in the public domain as artificial intelligence.

There is only one intelligence, that only exists in the natural living organisms, that mother nature has created. There is no other intelligence. Therefore, we invite everyone to challenge that view and ask, why on earth humanity is placed in such an inferior position and place, that the system does not, even, have faith that it can make rational, logical, scientific and mathematical choices by itself? That humanity is forced or mandated a second-class existence, inferior to the machinations and in this this very humanity now lacks that confidence, that self-belief, that self-worth because is now placed beneath that pseudo intelligence, that is a lie, the grandest lie, that was ever concocted. An algorithm is a mathematical construct, that does not make it an intelligence nor does any other machinations, regardless of their functioning abilities, which go as far as they are designed to do.

It is astonishing to see that no one in this world would stand up and say: hang on a minute! What is going on in this world? Everyone has accepted the distorteddia invented and implanted ideas without raising an eye brow! But it is time that everyone does raise an eye brow and question.  

When asked which automation trends were likely to have the greatest impact over the next two years, survey respondents most often selected ‘automation of payments’ at 16%. Respondents think that higher-order functions, such as, decision-making are more immune from automation, for now at least. Only 05% of respondents selected the automation of supply-chain decision-making as having the greatest future impact.

Create and Pave: Intelligence and Learning




|| December 09: 2017:
Download This Piece In PDF: || ά. Learning is a Bio-Intuitional Cognition Process Set by Nature in All Living Organisms on a Scale of the Lowest Level and Degree of Sheer Biological Awareness to the Highest Level and Degree of Consciousness That is Capable of Forming Itself Both as Individual Person and as a Member of the Unity of Many Persons or Community or Society and That is Capable to Congnise, Combining Both Bio and Intuitional in an Alignment of All Components of the Faculty of Rationality by Which It Thinks Through and Comes to Cognition and That is Learning and This Learning is Deposited in a 'Bank', Called, Memory: From a Single Cell Living Organism with Just Biological Awareness on Biological Cognition to a Human Brain:Mind:Will:Soul with Bio-Intuitional Cognition Learning Can and Does Take Place. There is None and Can Not Be Any Intelligence or Learning Outside Living Organisms, Where We Find Things, Matters, Energies, Time, Space and Void Existing Under Absolute, Incorporated, Inherent and Ingrained Eternal Natural Laws Without Exceptions at All Times, That Not a Single Variable Existing in It Can Alter or Not Obey, Signifying There is No 'Will' There, Which Does and Can Only Arise Out of Intelligence Through Learning and All, That is Outside the Living-Life, Form Part of What We Call The Mechanoprincipium, Which Only the Highest Possible Bio-Intuitional Intelligence, i.e, Humanity is Capable of Perceiving.

Therefore, the Very Absurd Ideas, That the Misguided, Manipulative and Profiteering Market Mechanism is Seeking to Portray, Establish, Impose and Dictate to Humanity as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are Nothing But Means to Expand the Scope, Prowess and Reach of Dehumanisation and Must Be Rejected, Resisted, Fought and Defeated Outright. We Have, Almost, More Than Half of All Humanity and the Great Majority of Women, Forced and Sentenced to Live and Die in No Education, in Desperate Hunger, Desperate Poverty and Abject Poverty and Malnutrition and Without Medical Care, in Homelessness and Unemployment and Much More Besides and, Yet, These Forces are Wasting All Precious Human and Other Priceless Resources Into Such Absolute and Utter Audacity of Imposing Their Machinations on Humanity as If to Suggest That for an Injured Soul Dying in Absolute Agony of Bleeding, Hurts and Pains the Necessity is Not to Take Her:Him to the Nearest Accident and Emergency Unit of a Hospital But Get a Plastic Toy-Robot-Doctor to Sit Next to Him Speaking Utter Imbecility! This Can Not, Should Not and Must Not Be Let to Succeed. The Most Vital and Most Scarce Human Resources Must Not Be Let to Be Squandered in This Absurd and Utterly Misguided Pursuit of Dehumanisation. Our High-Most Priority is to Ensure That the Entire Humankind, in All Nations on Earth, is Afforded the Right to Get an Education and Get Universal Human Rights and Not a Single Soul Die of Hunger or for the Lack of Medicare.

This is What is Called Intelligence and This Why It is Called Learning: Because are Humans and We Ask and Question and We Empathise and We Sympathise and We Love and We Hope and We Imagine and We Learn and We Dream and We Want to Ensure Our Brothers and Sisters and All Our Children are as Valued, as Safe, as Protected, as Respected and as Nurtured as Everyone Else. This is Called Humanity and This Arises Out of This Intelligence, That is an Inalienable and Inseparable Part of the Biological Mechanism and Architecture of Life and Which Can Not and Does Not Exist Outside This Living-Life and That Mother Nature Has Endowed Each One of Us With, When We Arrive at Our Existence. Therefore, O Humanity Rise to Reject, Fight and Defeat This Attack of Ruthless Dehumanisation by These Concocted, Brewed and Miss-constructed Ideas Being Sought to Be Implanted in Our Heads and Minds. The Humanion uses Machine Processed Programming:MPP for Machine or Artificial Intelligence and Programmed Algorithmic Machination:PAM for Machine Learning, refusing the very concepts that machines can have intelligence and that they are, therefore, capable to learn. Likewise, The Humanion does not use the terms, self-driven or self-driving or autonomous vehicles for machines are not and can not be deemed to be having 'self', that absolutely applies to humans and autonomy applies to humans as individuals and as groups, societies, peoples, nations etc and can not be applied to machines. Therefore, Auto-driven is the term we use for Self-driven or Self-driving or autonomous vehicles etc. This relates to profound, vital and fundamental issues and we must be careful as to how we use terminology, that, albeit, inadvertently, dehumanises humanity.

|| Wednesday: May 29: 2019 || ά. Metsä Fibre, part of Metsä Group, has awarded ÅF Pöyry with the pre-engineering assignment for new bio-product mill in Kemi. The target for the ongoing pre-engineering project is to create conditions for building a bio-product mill with an annual production capacity of, approximately, 01.5 million tonnes of softwood and hardwood pulp to Metsä Group’s current mill site in Kemi.

In addition to pulp, the mill would produce various other bio-products. This mill would be the biggest wood processing unit in the Northern hemisphere. The new mill would replace the current Kemi pulp mill with an annual capacity of, approximately, 620,000 tonnes. The total investment would amount to, approximately EUR01.5 billion. The final investment decision related to the Kemi bio-product mill is expected to be made in the summer 2020.

Metsä Fibre has, also, awarded ÅF Pöyry with the pre-engineering assignment for a pine sawmill at its mill site in Rauma. The estimated annual production of this sawmill would be, approximately, 750,000 cubic metres. The new sawmill would be the most modern and efficient unit in its field in the world.

The level of technology and utilisation of data will be clearly raised higher, compared to current sawmills. The total investment would amount to, approximately, EUR200 million. The final investment decision related to the Rauma sawmill is expected to be made in early 2020.

These pre-engineering assignments are part of project planning phase, that include, among other things, Environmental Impact Assessment:EIA and environmental permit processes, main equipment contracts and investment proposals.

‘’ÅF Pöyry serves us with their competence in these large industrial investment pre-engineering projects. We have common target to design the most modern bio-product mill and sawmill, that don’t use fossil fuels and are best in their classes.”, says Mr Ismo Nousiainen, CEO of Metsä Fibre.

Metsä Fibre and ÅF Pöyry has co-operated in several assignments earlier. “These assignments further strengthen the co-operation between Metsä Group and ÅF Pöyry and we are pleased to be able to support Metsä Fibre in these strategically important sustainable assignments, targeted to reducing the use of fossil fuels, increase production of renewable energy and increase carbon dioxide stored in wood products, that have a long lifespan.’’ says Mr Nicholas Oksanen, the Executive Vice President, the Head of Division Process Industries of ÅF Pöyry.

The Law Isn't Working: The Federation of International Employers: Capitalism Isn’t Working: The Humanion

 

Work is beautiful because through this humanity can and does get the means to utilise its infinite imagination, creativity and ingenuity and with that it creates values and worth: These values and worth determine the quality, nature and magnitude of the human condition for which there can not, should not, ought not and must not be opposing ‘interest-blocks’ determining these fundamental issues but, instead, humanity should seek to approach and decide these fundamental issues with vital importance, equipped with only the architecture of human rationality, logic, reason, evidence, mathematics and science and work as mathematicians and scientists and humanity must learn a different, infinitely superior and seismically a-new way to take the political economics forward. The Humanion is speaking of a far superior system of economics than the infinite mess capitalism has invented to which people are placed on two antagonistic sides and they take on that ‘mortal combative jackets’ and both are stuck in them forever, learning to keep on rehearsing and getting ‘cemented’ in their ‘stuck-up and brickened-up’ roles till eternity's end. The Humanion  

 

 





|| Wednesday: May 29: 2019 || ά. The Federation of International Employers:FedEE, is the leading organisation for multinational HR Professionals. It was founded in 1988 with financial assistance from the European Commission. Today it is an independent body with members all around the globe. Fedee Corporate Services Limited is based in The Strand, London. In this piece FedEE writes to raise awareness about, what the Agency calls ‘the failures of employment law’.

The Humanion publishes this piece because it raises serious issues and invites agencies and organisations from all other spectra of society, particularly, trade unions and other such bodies, who will have diverging views about these matters for this only presents the views of the Federation of International Employers: who are only one part of the two sides, that compose the working trade, business and commerce spheres of societies and in these two sides the former have a ‘determinative’ say while the later is, always, put in an ‘inferior and forced’ position.

The following is what FedEE has presented as elaboration of the issues, that arise in these ‘failures’: A cornerstone of civilisation is a fair and equitable legal system. But what about the legitimacy of laws, if, they are not applied by the very agencies, that create and enforce them? That, unfortunately, is the case across many parts of the globe today and is of particular concern for multinational enterprises, that, so, often, become the easy victim of such arbitrary acts.

Pay Fixing: Interfering with Wage Competition: Many governments across Europe not only allow a corrupt process of wage fixing but, they actively conspire in its enforcement upon companies. If, two companies colluded together to set the price of paint, the consumer would suffer. But what about, if, the government not only let the collusion happen but, even, declared the inflated price of paint as the minimum for all paint companies?

That would be so damaging to markets that the economy would suffer and inflation would rise uncontrollably as the practice was adopted for other commodities. It is precisely against such price fixing that the US Sherman Act was passed in 1890 and why in most advanced economies today anti-trust laws exist to stop such practices.

But, if, two unions sat down with two thriving companies in France and fixed the price of labour at an unrealistically high rate, that would be entirely legal, a sign of good ‘social partnership’ and no-one would challenge the government when it stepped in, as it, usually, does, to make the wage rates applicable across the entire industry sector. The fact that the parties had colluded to keep wage rates high and, thus, make it more difficult for smaller companies and new companies entering the market would not be seen as a valid legal challenge, nor would be the impact of inflated labour rates on commodity prices paid by all consumers. In fact, this practice is rife across much of Europe, including, not just France but Austria, Denmark, the Netherlands and Sweden.

The Treaty of the Functioning of the European Union bans all forms of anti-competitive behaviour and lays down strict rules for state aid, yet, the act of conspiring to maintain inflated wages and the state enforcement of wage cartels goes unchallenged.

Fortunately, this practice of enforcement of wage cartels by governments, may be, on the wane. One of the few advantages gained from the Greece and Portugal bailouts was that it gave the IMF an opportunity to quietly stop this anti-competitive practice. It is falling into disuse too in Croatia and Slovenia. There are, also, a few individual challenges at a country level, like the recent Dutch case, involving inter-hospital collusion over the overtime rates for anaesthesiologists.

According to The Secretary-General of the Federation of International Employers:FedEE, Mr Robin Chater, "This is just the beginning. Europe is over a century behind the USA in ensuring that anti-competitive practices apply as much to wage rates and the actions of trade unions as they do to the sale or wholesale price of goods and services. Few people realise that colluding to inflate wages for a few workers raises the cost of living for everyone. Unions can not believe their luck when generous offers are put on the table but it is the poor and old who, in fact, suffer most in the end."

FedEE is, particularly, concerned about France where union membership is the lowest in Europe, yet, according to Chater, "The French government allows radical unions, such as, the CGT and grossly overpaid occupations, such as, air traffic controllers to hold them and the country, to ransom. For many years, the price of peace has been to let the corruption continue and give it government backing."
The answer, probably, lies through the courts, although, the chances of pursuing an anti-trust challenge to labour practices through the French legal system to reach an eventual European Court of Justice decision remains remote.

Ultimately, all kinds of labour practices could fall foul of anti-trust legislation, from HR managers meeting to swap salary data to all sectoral collective agreements, that fix the price of labour, whether or not there is government intervention to compound the problem. In the meantime, consumers in many EU member states will have to continue bearing the artificially high costs of goods and services brought about by wage fixing.:::ω.

Munayem Mayenin’s Second Volume of Humanics: Humanics: The Humanicsonomics: Pseudonomics and Its Laws and Lawlessness to Be Released on June 12

 

 

|| Sunday: May 05: 2019 || ά. Dear Reader, just a short update for you on Humanics: since, the publication of the first volume of Humanics, Humanics The Foundation, in 2017, the work went on to complete the second volume, the title of which stands as Humanics: The Humanicsonomics: Pseudonomics and Its Laws and Lawlessness. We are engaged, as of this moment, in the absolute final touching on the absolute final editing of the manuscript and, over this coming month, a substantial amount of time, will have to spent in this. However, the volume is as ready as it can get, to be published. We hope and aim to publish this volume, on June 12.

Let capitalism be in no doubt, humanics is not here to be brushed aside: humanics is not here to get the absolute dust of ‘desperate and methodical’ ‘keep on looking away’ by those, who hold various powers so that they will not mention humanics, though you would see and hear the entire world is now using dehumanisation of humanity and dehumanising etc, as, if, they had invented these ideas and concepts; no, they did not invent them. This author’s entire life, in which all the hardest of payments and hardest of prices had been exacted from him because of this work, his faith in this work and the way he existed in life because of this work, went onto living and developing the work of Dehumanisation of Humanity, which was done during the eighties, the work was written by the mid nighties and published later. And, when the work of Dehumanisation of Humanity is spoken of it, must be, remembered that that work includes the very foundational works of this author on technological dehumanisation, the distorteddia, Sociology of Evil, Sociology of Squalor and Psychology of Zoohuman and many other works.  

For, unlike the days of Marxism, today humanity has the internet and the online window, despite all its negativity, to present ideas and visions to shift the public discourse in the public domain and, like all ages, remember the fact that they accused and killed Socrates with the accusation that his ideas were ‘corrupting’ the youth!, to the world and, again, to the youth of all humanity. It is, simply, because the old generations are done and dusted, bent and ‘bondaged’ by old ideas and they are unable to unlearn and undo as to the damages, they have caused on themselves to suffer so that they are as good as done and finished.

They are terribly unlikely, other than some, those, who refuse to get old and remain ever-an-eternal-human-child in their minds, to see anything good in humanics and they will keep on asking the rest of humanity to keep on regurgitating and accepting the taughtologies, that they have swallowed about capitalism, without questions but questions are to be and must be asked. This volume of humanics has raised these vital questions and went about seeking to answer these questions and what is presented in it is now to be out there in the public domain on June 12.

The volume is dedicated to The Future Humanity, that is today’s youth for only they hold the future of humanity, if, this humanity has any future at all for the old of us, all old generations have failed miserably in ensuring our human race does and will have a future and, if, capitalism continues as it is, it has an infinite range of mighty arsenal at its prowess and disposal to bring the entire human race to extinction by itself alone not to a distant but quite-real-and-quite-near-future.

‘’Dedication: To the Future Humanity: One Day, May You Come to Exist Exactly as I Have Elvisioned You Being, Dreamt of You Being, Believed You are Capable of Being and Becoming and the Way I Sought to Create My Existence in Simply Becoming This Dream, This Vision, They Will All Tell You, This Utopia, That I Call My Humanicsovicsopia: That You are at the Absolute Optimal High Best of What You are and What You are Capable of Being, Doing, Creating and Becoming: You are an Infinity Unfolding Itself. I Existed to Give You This Mirror Image of Yourself So That You Can See the Glances, Traces, Flashes, Flickers, Fragments and Slivers of That Infinity of Yourself: Choose to Rise to Reach for and Become It: And Build the First Ever True Civilisation in Humanics in Human Enterprise with Equality and Liberty, About Meaning and Purpose and by the Rule of Law, in Civic Societies at Home in Natural Justice: In Short: The State of Humanity Literally Being, Creating, Doing, Loving and Giving as an Infinity Unfolding Itself. For Than Here is a Sonnet for You to Read: Love for We are Only Once in and as This Human Existence: Just Once: Make It Count.

Imsi Imparnium
 
This Imsi Imparnium is my Home being a poet I make with words
From the flowing eternity's depths where all’s at home in flow-go
Take I none from no one's wealth nor places nor spaces or palaces
Neither prowess nor frames of fames do I seek nor ever safety or its
 
Nets feature nor threat works nor any reward nor award is sought
But on this shore I do make my Word-Mahal a temple all in these
Emmaphires of the Liberties of the Words for the Eternity-Seagull
To find a home in the spread of all eternal skies where only Maya
 
Does hold the rising symphonies of my dreamt-of-humanity's face
And if you sit here and reach you shall find infinities swirling in
Your soul eternities framing your sounds and views and that light
 
That you are when you love and that magic that you show in your
Eyes when you are nothing but love and say than nothing but be
In my Imsi Impanium and say Maya I am Maya I do in Imparnium’’

Pöyry Contributes Its Expertise in Building Thailand’s Hanuman Wind Farm: One of the Biggest Wind Farm Projects in South East Asia: Hanuman Enters Commercial Operation

 

|| Tuesday: April 30: 2019 || ά. The 260 MW Hanuman Wind Farm Project, owned by the Energy Absolute Public Company Limited:EA, the largest renewable energy company in the SET, has recently entered commercial operation. Composed of five sub-projects located in Chaiyaphum Province, the project is set to be one of the biggest of its kind in Thailand.

International engineering consultancy company Pöyry provided owner's engineering services for the WTG erection and commissioning of the wind farms. This included reviewing and inspecting the WTG supplier's site management plans, progress reports and commissioning and testing reports, monitoring the actual progress of erection and commissioning works and regular reporting to owner, attending system walk downs to identify punch list items, as well as, re-inspections after remedial actions by WTG supplier.

Innovative Seaweed Farm to Produce Seaweed Food Commercially

 

 

|| Tuesday: April 30: 2019: University of Exeter News || ά. An innovative seaweed farm is set to spring up this summer in Cornwall, due to a new collaboration between Cornish Seaweed Company, Westcountry Mussels, researchers from the University of Exeter and Plymouth Marine Laboratory. Seaweed is a healthy, sustainable source of carbon-negative food with a large global market.

This year the Cornish Seaweed Company became the first in the UK to successfully cultivate seaweed commercially at sea, at their seaweed farm on the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall. This project will investigate methods of growing sugar kelp at large scale and measure the benefits to the environment that seaweed farms could provide. By integrating with existing shellfish aquaculture, the project will support the region’s producers in leading the way to provide food, that is healthy, tasty and good for the environment.

The algae cultivation industry is set for expansion in the UK, as the health and nutritional benefits of seaweed consumption become clear. Providing a sustainable source of protein, omega-three, iron, a range of vitamins and minerals and other key nutrients, seaweed is expected to play an important role in new diets, including, the increased prominence of plant-based diets in reaction to new data on food-related carbon emissions.

Mr Tim van Berkel, the Managing Director of the Cornish Seaweed Company, said, “Our success is a huge step towards creating a truly sustainable food and resource economy and we are proud to be on the forefront of this important development.

Five years ago hardly anyone had thought of seaweed as a commercial product. Now we are realising the enormous potential it has. From food and livestock feed to biofuels, bio-plastics, pharmaceuticals, medicines and, even, clothing, there is hardly anything, that seaweed can not be used for.”

Seaweed cultivation is purported to have a wide array of environmental benefits, including, mitigating harmful algal blooms and providing habitats for marine species, as well as, combating climate change.

In addition, seaweeds do not need fresh water, pesticides, fertiliser or land to grow on and they have very fast growth rates, making them sustainability champions.  Scientists at the University of Exeter and Plymouth Marine Laboratory will be assessing these benefits, to gain an understanding of how new seaweed aquaculture developments would interact with their environment.

Dr Ian Ashton of the Centre for Offshore Technology in Cornwall said, “It is great to work with an up and coming local business, helping overcome the challenges to develop a product, that is both commercially and environmentally sustainable.” 

The project, funded by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund, will lay the foundation for inter-disciplinary research projects in the Southwest in the future, as well as, accelerating the growth of the seaweed cultivation industry in the region.

The research project is set to start in summer 2019 in Porthallow, Cornwall and will run for 18 months.:::ω.

Urgent Action Needed to Better Manage Electric and Electronic E-waste: ILO

 

 

|| Monday: April 29: 2019: ILO News || ά. Representatives of governments, workers’ and employers’ organisations agree more must be done and urgently, to manage the millions of tonnes of e-waste produced each year. The ILO has called for urgent action to better manage the toxic flood of electric and electronic waste or e-waste, produced around the world, so it can be turned into a valuable source of decent work.

At a meeting at the ILO in Geneva, the participating stakeholders agree that governments should ‘increase and promote investments in waste management infrastructure and systems at all levels, as appropriate, to manage the rapidly growing flows of e-waste in ways, that advance decent work’. They, also, agreed on the urgency of protecting people working with e-waste, which is toxic and hazardous and negatively affects workers and the environment.

“Workers, handling e-waste, have no voice, no bargaining power and they are breaking hazardous materials by their hands.” said Worker Vice-chairperson, Mr James Towers. “Moreover, these workers are unaware of the many risks associated with handling e-waste.’’. Only 20 per cent of e-waste is formally recycled, even, though, it is valued at €55 billion.

E-waste is becoming an increasingly important resource for informal workers along the e-waste value chain, who recover, repair, refurbish, re-use, repurpose and recycle electrical and electronic equipment, bring innovative services and products to the market and facilitate a transition to the circular economy.

“There is great business opportunity in the e-waste sector.’’ said Employer Vice-chairperson, Mr Patrick Van den Bossche, “We need to step up our efforts in creating decent and sustainable jobs, fostering an enabling environment for sustainable enterprises, offering new products and new services, and adding value through enhancing the circular economy.”

The world produces as much as 50 million tonnes of e-waste a year. “In my own country, Nigeria and in several other African countries, e-waste is littering our landscape.” said Government Vice-chairperson, Mr Aniefiok Etim Essah. “Our youth possesses the creativity and potential for learning skills to manage e-waste, giving us the opportunity to increase youth employment.”

The ILO is a member of the UN E-Waste Coalition, formed to increase collaboration, build partnerships and more efficiently provide support to help states address the e-waste challenge.:::ω.

Envision Virgin Racing Holds Paris Innovation Summit 2019: Businesses Must Work Together to Tackle Climate Change

 

 

|| Sunday: April 28: 2019 || ά. The leading industry figures from across the globe have used Envision Virgin Racing’s Innovation Summit in Paris to issue a rallying cry as to how technology, innovation, co-operation and foresight from the business sector can help tackle climate change. Held at Châteauform, just a stone’s throw from the all-electric Formula E race in Paris, the participants of the event, from a wide range of prominent business leaders and sustainability experts from Envision Virgin Racing’s network to discuss why urgent and unprecedented changes are needed to restrict global warming to a maximum of 01.5°C.

Citing a recent report by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which states the world has just 12 years left to act, the event’s key panellists highlighted the pressing need for organisations across every sector to take it upon themselves to safeguard a sustainable future. Amongst the speakers, calling for such action were Vice President of Smart Mobility for Envision Group Mr Franz Jung, the CEO of the Virgin Group Mr Josh Bayliss, the Founder and CEO of cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab Mr Eugene Kaspersky, the Founding Partner of Global Optimism and Former Executive Secretary for the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change Ms Christiana Figueres and Mr ‘Tiger’ Tyagarajan, President and the CEO of the digital transformation firm Genpact.

Hosted by broadcast journalist Mr Andrew Wilson, the Innovation Summit is one of a series, held by Envision Virgin Racing in conjunction with its Race Against Climate Change initiative, a programme, launched by the team in 2017, which aims to accelerate the energy transition and help the world achieve the goals of the Paris Climate Accord. Indeed, the team, together with its partners, has earned a reputation as the leading Formula E team for sustainability, using its independent status to address the wider energy transition topic beyond just the e-mobility element.

The Managing Director for the team Mr Sylvain Filippi, who gave the opening address at the event, said, “Without doubt, it has never been more pressing for business leaders to examine the role they play in building a sustainable future for all. I believe, the time to act is now. The latest technologies available to us from wind turbines to electric cars, will, if, adopted on mass, accelerate our progress towards our goal of a net zero-emission world.

Our panellists today have shown that it is businesses and, their development of new technologies in particular, which can help find a pragmatic solution to the threat we face. There has never been a greater requirement for organisations to transform the way they operate and to inspire others across all business sectors.” 

As well as, being a sustainability leader, Envision Virgin Racing is one of the founding and most successful teams in Formula E and currently lies in second place in the championship standings heading into today’s Paris E-Prix. Meanwhile, the team’s next Innovation Summit takes place at Brooklyn’s New Lab Facility, ahead of the New York City E-Prix on Friday, July 12, 2019.

Mr Franz Jung, Vice President of Smart Mobility at Envision Group and the Chairman of the Board of Envision Virgin Racing, said, “Envision as the leading renewable technology company, recently entered the EV battery sector with Envision AESC’s the Gen5-811 battery. It is not just a cutting-edge battery but, one that will be integrated into the Envision EnOSTM system, to empower the battery with AIoT and V2X abilities. At Envision Virgin Racing we always push the system to the limit. We utilise Formula E to demonstrate Envision’s technology to better support the team. In return, we will apply the knowledge gathered from Formula E to optimise Envision’s new products.”

Mr Josh Bayliss, Virgin Group CEO, said, “Across the Virgin Group, we’re identifying ways to tackle climate change and reduce our footprint. I believe there is huge potential for low-carbon transformation in every sector which Virgin operates in, whether it’s renewable jet fuels at Virgin Atlantic, providing mass transit solutions through Virgin Trains or looking to the future with Virgin Hyperloop. The Envision Virgin Racing team along with the rest of Formula E play a key role in driving low-carbon mobility through ground-breaking innovation.”

Mr Eugene Kaspersky, the Founder and the CEO Kaspersky Lab, said, “We are living in fast-changing, innovative times; an interconnected world with ‘smart’ everything, factories, cars, homes, and the ever-present IoT gadgets. This is already the new normal, the new reality. While enjoying the benefits and convenience of this new infrastructure, we have to remember how vulnerable this new digitalised world is and make it our mission and responsibility to look out for its safety and security. I call for a responsible digital-wellbeing approach on all levels: from ordinary users and small businesses to large corporations and governments.”

Ms Christiana Figueres, the eFounding Partner, Global Optimism and Former Executive Secretary, UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, said, “The Envision Virgin Racing team and the broader Formula E race show that the future is not in the future, it is in the present. We have already developed electric mobility technologies, that we would only have dreamed of a few years ago. These can now be applied appropriately to other areas of transport. It is time to thank the internal combustion engine and put it in the museum.” 

Mr ‘Tiger’ Tyagarajan, President and CEO, Genpact, said, “In this era of unprecedented technological change, innovation has the power to connect industries, communities, and society as a whole. It is imperative that business leaders consider not only their companies’ growth, but also their greater purpose and impact on the world. Technology creates new opportunities to make sustainability a central part of any organization’s strategy. Genpact’s work with Envision Virgin Racing underscores the crucial role that AI and analytics play to drive innovation for the future of sustainable electric cars with Formula E, and more broadly for the future of mobility. These lessons can help other industries as they use technology to address their own sustainability concerns and build stronger connections between their organizations and communities.”

Ms Sandra Roling, the Head of EV100, The Climate Group, said, “Accelerating the shift to clean transport is a new hallmark of ambitious business leadership, as well as, tackling climate change it helps to reduce the major public health challenge of air pollution in cities. With two out of three new cars in Europe sold to the corporate sector, businesses have an unparalleled opportunity to grow demand for electric vehicles and hasten their roll out at scale. Through our global EV100 initiative, influential companies are leading the charge by electrifying their fleets by 2030, major businesses everywhere should join them.”:::ω.

Fastned Has Been Given the Contract to Build and Operate Five Additional Fast Charging Station in the North East of England

 

 

 

|| March 18: 2019 || ά. Fastned, a charging company, which is building a European network of fast charging stations, won a second tender in the UK, led by the North East Joined Transport Committee. Fastned will build and operate five fast charging stations or hubs for electric vehicles across the region. Each station will, initially, house two 50 kW fast chargers, known as, rapid chargers in the UK, that will deliver 100% renewable electricity.

Fastned intends to build and operate these five fast charging stations in Gateshead, Blyth, Whitley Bay, Washington and Kingston Park. These stations will enable fully electric cars to fast charge their batteries and will be added to Fastned’s European network. This network currently consists of 88 stations in the Netherlands and Germany and is expanding rapidly. Two other Fastned stations are currently under development in Newcastle and Sunderland as part of the Go Ultra Low NE programme.

Mr Michiel Langezaal, the CEO of Fastned, said, “Fastned was founded to accelerate the transition to electric vehicles, so, we are pleased, we can start offering fast charging infrastructure in the North East of England. Reliable fast charging infrastructure will make fully electric vehicles just as practical as cars with internal combustion engines. Fastned has the ambition to build a European network of 1,000 fast charging stations and aims to build more fast charging stations in the UK.’’

Councillor Mr Martin Gannon, the Chair of the North East Joint Transport Committee and the Leader of Gateshead Council, said, “The five rapid charging hubs will help further establish the North East of England as a leader in electric mobility and are very good news for electric drivers in our region. The hubs can provide electric freedom and ease of travelling for local commuters, commercial fleets and travellers passing through the region.”
