Letter: ‘Socialism does not work, and invariably leads to death and despair. History shows this in every historic case’

first_imgLetter: ‘Socialism does not work, and invariably leads to death and despair. History shows this in every historic case’Posted by ClarkCountyToday.comDate: Tuesday, October 13, 2020in: Letters To The Editor, Opinionshare 0 Vancouver resident Barry Mannie shares his opinions on SocialismEditor’s note: Opinions expressed in this letter to the editor are those of the author alone and do not reflect the editorial position of ClarkCountyToday.comBarry Mannie VancouverBarry Mannie, VancouverSocialism in the US? Really!! Even Communist China gave up Socialism. After 25 years of totalitarian Communist Rule and Socialist Economic policies, China came to the conclusion that Socialism was a failure, the famine and the death that Socialism caused eventually threatened China’s Communist Party rule and China was moving toward anarchy and the destruction of Chinese Totalitarian Communist Party control and power. The Chinese people were rising up and ready to take back their government. In order to save all the Communist Power over the people, the Communists decided to discard their chosen Socialist Economic structure and embrace Market Economic policies if not just to try to keep their power over their people. It worked!! Over the last 50 years China has first been able to feed its people, excellent, keep it’s people from taking down the Communist Power Structure, and now looking toward becoming a rival to the U.S. Superpower. Quite the accomplishment.But even though China abandoned Socialism long ago, they do not support a “Free Market System” like here in the West. No Communism does not allow freedom, China requires total control. Is this what our leftist friends want for the United States? Do they realize or even recognize Communist China got rid of Socialism long ago? Because everywhere it’s been truly tried, it’s killed tens of thousands of people by hunger and violence, mainly perpetrated by authoritarian government leaders? Socialism is, will be, and has always been a train wreck. The inventor of Socialism Karl Marx, an admitted racist, thought he got it all right, but actually got it all wrong. Socialism does not work, and invariably leads to death and despair. History shows this in every historic case. Don’t fall for the argument there’s a utopia of a pure Socialist system, it does not and will never exist. Human nature will be human nature and Socialism will always fail to live up to how Karl Marx thought humans would react and respond. Racist Carl Marx is discredited in every way. Even in and by Communist China.Barry MannieVancouverAdvertisementThis is placeholder textTags:Clark CountyVancouvershare 0 Previous : Business Profile: TMG Family of Companies focuses on people’s strengths Next : Green Neighbors program celebrates eight years with a virtual birthday partyAdvertisementThis is placeholder textlast_img read more

Stolen electrons key to unusual Mars aurora

first_imgVisualization of the newly discovered aurora on Mars. (Credit: NASA) Published: July 23, 2018 • By NASA Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail As protons plummet toward Mars, they steal electrons from the planet’s atmosphere, creating an ultraviolet aurora. (Credit: NASA Goddard)center_img Categories:SpaceNews Headlines Auroras appear on Earth as ghostly displays of colorful light in the night sky, usually near the poles. Our rocky neighbor Mars has auroras too, and NASA’s MAVEN spacecraft just found a new type of Martian aurora, according to a study led by researchers at CU Boulder. This phenomenon occurs over much of the day side of the Red Planet, where auroras are very hard to see. Auroras flare up when energetic particles plunge into a planet’s atmosphere, bombarding gases and making them glow. While electrons generally cause this natural phenomenon, sometime protons can elicit the same response, although it’s more rare. Now, the MAVEN team has learned that protons were doing at Mars the same thing as electrons usually do at Earth—create aurora. This is especially true when the Sun ejects a particularly strong pulse of protons, which are hydrogen atoms stripped of their lone electrons by intense heat. The Sun ejects protons at speeds up to 2 million miles per hour (more than 3 million kilometers per hour) in an erratic flow called the solar wind. The MAVEN (Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution mission) team was studying Mars’ atmosphere with the Imaging UltraViolet Spectrograph (IUVS), and observed that on occasion, the ultraviolet light coming from hydrogen gas in Mars’ upper atmosphere would mysteriously brighten for a few hours. They then noticed that the brightening events occurred when another MAVEN instrument, the Solar Wind Ion Analyzer (SWIA), measured enhanced solar wind protons. But two puzzles make this type of aurora seem impossible at first glance: how did these protons get past the planet’s “bow shock,” a magnetic obstacle which normally diverts the solar wind’s charged particles around the planet? And how could the protons give off light, since atoms need electrons to do so? “The answer was thievery,” said Justin Deighan, a research associate at CU Boulder’s Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics and lead author of a paper on this research appearing today in Nature Astronomy. “As they approach Mars, the protons coming in with the solar wind transform into neutral atoms by stealing electrons from the outer edge of the huge cloud of hydrogen surrounding the planet. The bow shock can only divert charged particles, so these neutral atoms continue right on through.” When those high-speed incoming atoms hit the atmosphere, some of their energy was emitted as ultraviolet light, which is invisible to the human eye but detectable to instruments like the IUVS on MAVEN. In fact, one incoming atom can collide with molecules in the atmosphere hundreds of times before it slows down, giving off a slew of ultraviolet photons.“The Martian proton auroras are more than a light show,” said Jasper Halekas of the University of Iowa, responsible for the SWIA instrument. “They reveal that the solar wind is not completely diverted around Mars, by showing how solar wind protons can sneak past the bow shock and impact the atmosphere, depositing energy and even enhancing the hydrogen content there.”Proton auroras do occur at Earth, but not as often as at Mars. One key difference is Earth’s strong magnetic field, which diverts the solar wind away from Earth to a much greater degree than at Mars. On Earth, proton auroras only occur in very small regions near the poles, whereas at Mars they can happen everywhere.However, proton auroras could be common on Venus and Titan. Like Mars, these two worlds lack their own magnetic fields, and have lots of hydrogen in their upper atmospheres—with plenty of electrons to share. Looking further, it’s likely that many planets orbiting other stars have the same favorable conditions, and would be likely to have proton auroras too. “MAVEN has been orbiting Mars since 2014, and our nearest neighbor keeps surprising us with new discoveries,” said Nick Schneider, a co-author of the new study and a research associate at LASP. “We can’t see this aurora on Mars with the naked eye, but it can tell us a lot about how our sun impacts the atmospheres of other bodies like Venus or Saturn’s moon Titan.”This research was funded by the MAVEN mission. Bruce Jakosky, a professor at LASP, is the principal investigator of the MAVEN project, which is managed by NASA Goddard. Scientists at LASP designed and built the IUVS instrument. Read the original release from NASA. More graphics related to this research are also available.last_img read more

SunPower to provide direct service for homeowners in New York

first_imgSunPower to provide direct service for homeowners in New YorkSunPower closes a partnership with The Solar Program to offer homeowners in New York a possibility to purchase or lease solar panels directly from the manufacturer. March 10, 2016 Adilya Zaripova Installations Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Modules & Upstream Manufacturing Share The partnership between the leading PV manufacturer SunPower and a New York funded solar marketing and sales company The Solar Program is a new way for New Yorkers to go solar. Instead of using sub-contractors, SunPower is offering homeowners a possibility to deal directly with the manufacturer when buying, financing or leasing solar panels.The new service means that starting from the design development, through permitting and even the installation process, the project is being facilitated by the company that manufactures the PV system.”It makes perfect sense,” CEO of The Solar Program Keith Finkel said in the announcement. “Who better to oversee the design and install of your solar system than the company that manufactures and warranties your solar system?”On their side of the partnership, The Solar Program will be the first point of contact for those looking to go solar, qualifying homes and educating homeowners on how solar works, as well as its savings and benefits.To date, a lot of New Yorkers do not have an opportunity to benefit from using solar. There are significant barriers for installing PV in the city, including long waits for approval through the city’s Department of Buildings, and fire codes that reduce the roof space available for installations. These issues will we explored in the print edition of pv magazine in April.Also, read the April edition of pv magazine for more information on high-efficiency PV modules, which is an area in which SunPower has made great strides in recent months.This content is protected by copyright and may not be reused.

IRP Update: post-2030 outlook remains unclear

first_imgThe recent publication of the draft Integrated Resource Plan 2018 highlights a concrete plan leading up to 2030; however, the post-2030 outlook is still to be confirmed based on more detailed studies and analysis. Based on the draft documents, South African law firm Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr, have highlighted that the IRP update acknowledges that the significant change in the energy mix post-2030 is highly impacted by the assumptions used, and that a slight change concerning the assumptions can alter the path chosen.Read more: Bumpy ride ahead for draft IRP2018 energy plan“It is therefore critical that the IRP Update, when finalised, is approached as it was intended to be, as a living document that is regularly reviewed and updated.“The IRP Update states that the review and outcome imply that the pace and scale of new capacity developments needed up to 2030 must be curtailed compared with that in the IRP 2010. Effectively this means that the following IPP programmes will likely not continue: the Coal Baseload IPP programme (beyond the current two projects being procured), the Co-Generation IPP Programme and the Small Renewable Energy IPP Programme,” the legal firm explained.The firm added: “Importantly the IRP Update states that the Ministerial Determinations for capacity beyond Bid Window 4 issued under the IRP 2010 must be reviewed and revised.“Ministerial Determinations are issued in terms of S34 of the Electricity Regulation Act (ERA) and require consultation with Nersa. Decisions of Nersa are regulated by the National Energy Regulator Act and require a public participation process. This will certainly impact the timing of the anticipated Bid Window 5 under the REIPPP programme.”View the draft document for comment here.

Vive Group stop sponsorship of giant from Kielce! Recommended for you Andreas Wolff about Kielce’s problem: It’s not just about money – Handball is much more than job! ShareTweetShareShareEmail ShareTweetShareShareEmailCommentsSurprising news from Kielce. Even without any official or friendly match in the new jersey, the biggest signing of the Polish best team PGE Vive Kielce, Andreas Wolff will be the captain of the team in the upcoming season.From the 2019/20 season the PGE VIVE Kielce team will have a new captain. This is a new player of the Polish Champions, whose transfer has long aroused great interest of fans and the media, and who since coming to Kielce quickly gained the sympathy of fans and teammates.Ahe beginning I was a bit surprised by this proposal, because becoming a captain after just a few days spent in a new team does not happen every day – comments the new captain PGE VIVE Kielce with a smile – Coaches chose me as captain, so I will want to help the team with all my experience gained in previous years in reaching the Champions League Final4, which is an obvious goal every season. I will now have to learn Polish even faster because I will be responsible for many things in the team! It’s a bit difficult vision, but I’m positive about it.The decision is commented by Sławomir Szmal, currently the goalkeeping coach of PGE VIVE Kielce, once a former player from the Kielce team and the Polish national team.In my opinion, it’s a very good idea – says Kasa – Andi is a significant figure when it comes to team performance, he is very hard-working, and he moved into the team very well, he is such a positive spirit after only a few days. Not stars, but a person who can articulate what he wants and, above all, listen to the team. He approaches, talks, is caring. Just like the captain who looks after his team.I am well aware that we have great Polish players on the team, such as Krzysztof Lijewski and Mariusz Jurkiewicz, or other players with more seniority, such as Julen Aginagalde – says PGE VIVE coach, Talant Dujshebaev – They all give this team a lot. However, these players will probably not be with us in the next season, and we want to build a team for years. Andreas is great for the role of captain and I think it’s a great thing for him too.Sławomir Szmal has a similar opinion.I have never had a problem with a captain being someone new – admits Kasa – The most important thing is the good of the team, and the team accepted such a choice, I think it is a good idea.Andreas Wolff’s deputy captains will be Alex Dujshebaev and Igor Karacić in turn Related Items:andreas wolff, PGE Vive Kielcelast_img read more
