He also noted the winning ticket contained numbers representing his and his mother’s birthdays. – Flawed testimony – In a ruling released this week, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Robert Crawford found problems with the testimony of Dushop, his mother and Prokop. – “I was not impressed with the semantic dance over the purchase of the lottery ticket,” Crawford said in his reasons for judgment. – Crawford ruled it was likely Dushop’s mother used her credit card to buy the ticket, using Dushop’s numbers, and that Prokop paid the Visa bill. – The judge believed the ticket was put away in a safety deposit box, because Angelina Dushop feared Prokop would want a share of the winnings. – But Crawford ruled Prokop failed to prove his case the ticket was his, and that it was stolen by Peter Dushop. – “The plaintiff has failed to establish both of these facts and accordingly the plaintiff’s claim must fail,” the judge said. – *  —djo— }

Most lawyers use this ploy to try to con the judge and/or jury into believing that their opponent doesn’t have a real case. In too many instances it might mean the lawyers are afraid that going through the real legal process might lose them their case. —djo— }

“Conspiracy Watch” was busy yesterday. This is one of a dozen similar quotes they posted. I’m not sure whether this was the original word for word phrase that may have been edited since Ben Franklin uttered it, or not. Wouldnt it be weird if we learned that many nuggets of wisdom we cherish were uttered in a drunken stupor? -djo-

{ –Renewable energy may currently make up only a small percentage of U.S. energy generation capacity, but it’s one of the fastest growing sectors. – Renewable energy generation—primarily wind and solar power—provided more than 40 percent of the new energy capacity in the U.S. in the first three quarters of this year, according to the latest U.S. Federation Energy Regulation Commission (FERC) Energy Infrastructure Update. Oil, nuclear and especially coal provided little new capacity, with renewables outstripping them more than 35 times. Only natural gas, driven by the growth of fracking, showed more growth, and many industry observers think its growth potential is finite. – The new installed capacity of natural gas declined compared to the first three quarters of 2013, from 6,643 megawatt (MW) to 5,153. Wind was the big winner, upping its installed capacity from 965 MW to 1,614 in that period. In September, new wind capacity led the way with 367 MW, followed by natural gas with 114. Coal showed no increase in existing capacity so far this year. Overall, new capacity from all forms of energy declined from 11,452 in the first three quarters of last year to 8,860 this year. – Among FERC’s project updates is that Kern County, California’s Techachapi Wind Energy Storage project is now up and running. The South California Edison Project, FERC says, “consists of an 8 MW-four-hour (32 MWh) lithium-ion battery and a smart inverter system, [and] will help store energy from the existing 5,000 wind turbines and any future additions in the Techachapi Wind Resource Area. Housed inside a 6,300 square foot facility, it is the largest battery energy storage in North America.” Such projects bode well for the continued growth of wind power. – Natural gas still leads overall energy generation capacity in the U.S. by a long shot. It currently provides more than 42 percent of the total. But fracked natural gas and oil production is expected to fall off sharply, as extraction companies hit the most productive “sweet spots” first and then move on to areas with less accessible oil and gas that’s more expensive to reach. – Despite its precipitous decline, coal hangs onto the second place spot for now, generating more than 28 percent of U.S. installed capacity. Nuclear comes in next with 9.3 percent, followed by water at 8.4 percent and wind at 5.3 percent. All other forms of energy generation capacity are far behind. Solar currently provides less than one percent. But PV Magazine, which serves the photovoltaic industry, points out that FERC’s figures only include utility-scale solar, leaving out residential and business installations, which it says are among the fastest growing sources of renewable energy. – “The steady and rapid growth of renewable energy is unlikely to abate as prices continue to drop and the technologies continue to improve,” said Ken Bossong, executive director of  the nonprofit research group the SUN DAY Campaign. “The era of coal, oil and nuclear is drawing to a close; the age of renewable energy is now upon us.” –  —djo— }

Could it be more? Easily, it could be more. Could it be less? Well yes, it could be rain as well.” – There will likely be flurries on Saturday, Bourque said, but the larger amounts of precipitation will be coming on Sunday. – The meteorologist said he expects people living in eastern New Brunswick will need an umbrella, while those in central and western parts of the province will need snow shovels. – He said the exact amount of snow or rain will depend on how the low pressure system moves through the province. – “Certainly there is going to be some snow fall there in central and western New Brunswick. Now of course it is difficult to put values on snowfall amounts with this type of system because it could be mixed with rain,” he said. – Bourque said the flurries could hang around until Monday.” – *  —djo— }

Eleanor Roosevelt Quote

Eleanor Roosevelt Quote

quote

“Conspiracy Watch” was busy yesterday. This is one of a dozen similar quotes they posted. I’m not sure whether this was the original word for word phrase that may have been edited since Ben Franklin uttered it, or not. Wouldnt it be weird if we learned that many nuggets of wisdom we cherish were uttered in a drunken stupor? -djo-

{ –Renewable energy may currently make up only a small percentage of U.S. energy generation capacity, but it’s one of the fastest growing sectors. – Renewable energy generation—primarily wind and solar power—provided more than 40 percent of the new energy capacity in the U.S. in the first three quarters of this year, according to the latest U.S. Federation Energy Regulation Commission (FERC) Energy Infrastructure Update. Oil, nuclear and especially coal provided little new capacity, with renewables outstripping them more than 35 times. Only natural gas, driven by the growth of fracking, showed more growth, and many industry observers think its growth potential is finite. – The new installed capacity of natural gas declined compared to the first three quarters of 2013, from 6,643 megawatt (MW) to 5,153. Wind was the big winner, upping its installed capacity from 965 MW to 1,614 in that period. In September, new wind capacity led the way with 367 MW, followed by natural gas with 114. Coal showed no increase in existing capacity so far this year. Overall, new capacity from all forms of energy declined from 11,452 in the first three quarters of last year to 8,860 this year. – Among FERC’s project updates is that Kern County, California’s Techachapi Wind Energy Storage project is now up and running. The South California Edison Project, FERC says, “consists of an 8 MW-four-hour (32 MWh) lithium-ion battery and a smart inverter system, [and] will help store energy from the existing 5,000 wind turbines and any future additions in the Techachapi Wind Resource Area. Housed inside a 6,300 square foot facility, it is the largest battery energy storage in North America.” Such projects bode well for the continued growth of wind power. – Natural gas still leads overall energy generation capacity in the U.S. by a long shot. It currently provides more than 42 percent of the total. But fracked natural gas and oil production is expected to fall off sharply, as extraction companies hit the most productive “sweet spots” first and then move on to areas with less accessible oil and gas that’s more expensive to reach. – Despite its precipitous decline, coal hangs onto the second place spot for now, generating more than 28 percent of U.S. installed capacity. Nuclear comes in next with 9.3 percent, followed by water at 8.4 percent and wind at 5.3 percent. All other forms of energy generation capacity are far behind. Solar currently provides less than one percent. But PV Magazine, which serves the photovoltaic industry, points out that FERC’s figures only include utility-scale solar, leaving out residential and business installations, which it says are among the fastest growing sources of renewable energy. – “The steady and rapid growth of renewable energy is unlikely to abate as prices continue to drop and the technologies continue to improve,” said Ken Bossong, executive director of  the nonprofit research group the SUN DAY Campaign. “The era of coal, oil and nuclear is drawing to a close; the age of renewable energy is now upon us.” –  —djo— }

Wind and solar collectors

Renewable Energy becoming more of a factor in the U.S.A. these days.

{ –Renewable energy may currently make up only a small percentage of U.S. energy generation capacity, but it’s one of the fastest growing sectors. – Renewable energy generation—primarily wind and solar power—provided more than 40 percent of the new energy capacity in the U.S. in the first three quarters of this year, according to the latest U.S. Federation Energy Regulation Commission (FERC) Energy Infrastructure Update. Oil, nuclear and especially coal provided little new capacity, with renewables outstripping them more than 35 times. Only natural gas, driven by the growth of fracking, showed more growth, and many industry observers think its growth potential is finite. – The new installed capacity of natural gas declined compared to the first three quarters of 2013, from 6,643 megawatt (MW) to 5,153. Wind was the big winner, upping its installed capacity from 965 MW to 1,614 in that period. In September, new wind capacity led the way with 367 MW, followed by natural gas with 114. Coal showed no increase in existing capacity so far this year. Overall, new capacity from all forms of energy declined from 11,452 in the first three quarters of last year to 8,860 this year. – Among FERC’s project updates is that Kern County, California’s Techachapi Wind Energy Storage project is now up and running. The South California Edison Project, FERC says, “consists of an 8 MW-four-hour (32 MWh) lithium-ion battery and a smart inverter system, [and] will help store energy from the existing 5,000 wind turbines and any future additions in the Techachapi Wind Resource Area. Housed inside a 6,300 square foot facility, it is the largest battery energy storage in North America.” Such projects bode well for the continued growth of wind power. – Natural gas still leads overall energy generation capacity in the U.S. by a long shot. It currently provides more than 42 percent of the total. But fracked natural gas and oil production is expected to fall off sharply, as extraction companies hit the most productive “sweet spots” first and then move on to areas with less accessible oil and gas that’s more expensive to reach. – Despite its precipitous decline, coal hangs onto the second place spot for now, generating more than 28 percent of U.S. installed capacity. Nuclear comes in next with 9.3 percent, followed by water at 8.4 percent and wind at 5.3 percent. All other forms of energy generation capacity are far behind. Solar currently provides less than one percent. But PV Magazine, which serves the photovoltaic industry, points out that FERC’s figures only include utility-scale solar, leaving out residential and business installations, which it says are among the fastest growing sources of renewable energy. – “The steady and rapid growth of renewable energy is unlikely to abate as prices continue to drop and the technologies continue to improve,” said Ken Bossong, executive director of  the nonprofit research group the SUN DAY Campaign. “The era of coal, oil and nuclear is drawing to a close; the age of renewable energy is now upon us.” –  —djo— }

{ -Followed the link above to this: * – “This is embarrassing. – Canada is dead last among industrialized nations in a new climate change performance index. – “Canada still shows no intention on moving forward with climate policy and therefore remains the worst performer of all industrialized countries,” says the report released by Germanwatch, a sustainable development advocacy group. – The index takes into account a variety of indicators related to greenhouse gas emissions, development of emissions, climate policy, renewable energy and energy efficiency. – Canada particularly stands out when comparing its low scores on emissions, renewable energy investments and climate policies.

– “This shouldn’t come as much surprise to Canadians. – Back in June, when U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced plans for historic reductions in carbon emissions, Stephen Harper reversed his long-standing wait-and-see what the Americans do position on emissions, shifting to a new line that he had actually solved the problem two years ago. – That, of course, isn’t true. Earlier this month, an audit conducted by the Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development found the federal government’s policies to reduce emissions has only gotten us 7% of the way to meeting Canada’s Copenhagen Accord targets. – On the other hand, we’re dealing with a government that believes increased fossil fuel use has a correlation with improved air and water quality.” – * —djo— }

-Updated- ‘I am sorry,’ Mountie killer Justin Bouque tells court   { * – Questions I would ask him: “Are you being treated with any psychiatric drugs?” – “Have you ever been bullied by anyone, in your home, at school, on the street?” – “Is anyone in your family connected with the military?” – “Is anyone in your family connected with any police department?” – “Have you ever been bullied by police or military personnel?” – “Do you often feel like you’re powerless, at the mercy of mean spirited authority figures?” – “Do you often feel like your life is not real, that you are dreaming and none of this makes any sense?” – “Have you ever been hypnotized?” – & Then I would want to have him hypnotized by someone I could trust, and questioned in a room with a two-way mirror (which could be hidden behind a curtain which would be drawn open after he was ‘under’) and all kinds of interested parties would be in a sound proof room on the other side of that mirror while he is being probed to see if anybody put him up to this, of if he actually came up with this plan on his own, what influenced him? – *   —jim w— }

Not served in French, Ottawa couple wins Supreme Court case against Air Canada   { * “The Supreme Court has ruled in favour of an Ottawa couple who sued Air Canada for not adhering to Canadian language laws, but has also decided they are not entitled to any financial compensation from the airline.” *  —djo— }

-Analysis- John Tory ends Rob Ford’s reign over Toronto   { * – “John Tory has what he wanted, and it would seem the people of the city got what they wanted: a new mayor and a new approach at city hall. But, the race was a lot closer than many predicted.” – Doug Ford lost to John Tory by 6% of the votes. Olivia Chow reportedly suffered, losing votes she would have gotten to the John Tory camp; -too many voters were convinced that a vote for her would ensure a Doug Ford Victory. –  *  —jim w— }

 { Editorial? :  This from ———jda——— :

– “Thursday, 23 October, 2014 – Ack! We live in a violent culture. Nobody under the age of responsibility planned it this way, at least not in this lifetime. – When the television programmes you plunk your kids down in front of are violent— When their sports are violent— When somebody out there has decided that your games and distractions should all be violent—- Why didn’t you see this coming? – Good, honest young men and women are being duped into taking up arms to support one lie against another. Embrace the love of life. Embrace the love of love. Embrace the preciousness of every life on this planet. Support each other. – To hell with the ideas that kill. To hell with philosophies that say it’s okay to kill for king and country. – We were not told, “Thou shalt not kill unless your government tells you to-” — We were not told, “Thou shalt not kill unless the controlling, obsessive men who took over and subverted your religions tell you to.” — Do not pray for vengeance. – Pray for guidance. Pray for protection from the lies that too many of our contemporaries allow to control their lives. – Pray we call come together and dismiss the governments and (small r) religions that allow darkness to smirk and laugh themselves silly because they’ve been pulling the strings and spitting out the words that convince you that you are working God’s Will when you believe you have the right to destroy the lives of any of God’s Children. – Get thee behind us, thou dupes of the dark side. – Unzip the uniforms and find there are Children of God inside. Burn down the deceptions and realize that any true Religion nurtures your body, mind, soul and spirit, and tells you that we are all one spirit. We are all children of the same divine intelligence. – Smash your delusions and realize we are all One. Before it’s too late. ———jda———
