Round table Question of the day
« on: March 03, 2021, 06:54:27 PM »
Welcome to jt's Roundtable. 

Do you believe everything  reported by those in the media business
or do you check to insure it's not fake news?

Because we live in different parts of the world,from the events unfolding,
and have no 100% way of knowing what is happening, I research
and double check to find provable facts. 
Though there are a few great reporters who devote their lives to getting the 'facts' out-
I believe many are in the business to  sale stories  at the expense  of truth and facts.

What do you think? I ask...not expecting to get any answers. But sometimes, there's
just things that need to be said.

After over 200  years of US non-profit organizations,formed to help people in Africa and other foreign countries feed the hungry,etc. How is it the people who founded the organizations ended up rich,  and they   still claim to need money to help starving children worldwide  ???      Greed exists in every non-profit org. If you're rich and want to help make the world a better place for 'everyone'    don't let other people decide who to give your money to.....of course, they will take their expenses off the top-with a little extra. Use your fortune to make the world a better place...you can't take it with you...

Did Abraham Lincoln's son, Robert Todd Lincoln, sell out the American people in 1905 ??? By making one of our most loved US Presidents the poster-boy  for an insurance company ??? Or. Is this 'fake news'?

1905-The Lincoln National Life Insurance Company is established. Abraham Lincoln's son, Robert Todd Lincoln, grants permission to use his father's name and likeness. https://www.lfg.com/public/aboutus/companyoverview/historyandtimeline?audience_page_id=1422918942386

Is our,the internet users,  personal information safe on the internet ???
In my opinion the internet owners are all scammers.....do nothing more than collect information ,to sell to big businesses. Even Facebook has been charged with not telling people they  don't protect its member's personal information.....

Apparently, if private peoples' information is not safe-neither would the present day security protect the secrets of bankers and to big to fail businesses.... Think about that ;)

Do you believe that all who are/and were ever born make/made a purposeful journey? That even the worst in man is there for reasons beyond our comprehension....Every thing in life is a stepping stone to the end of our life's journey. I believe that the life we live here on earth/ and the experiences we go through determine our fate/destiny.  Has your faith ever been tested to the limits? Mine has many times.

Are "experts" in any field super humans?   Can one be trained to understand another's mindset from books  ???

People should stop trying to influence other peoples' way of thinking/behaving, and work on their own flaws.

To think that one can take a psychology class and become an authority on humans, and what makes a person act,in certain situations, the way they do... is laughable.

Only by experiencing/living another's life can one understand what makes another 'tick.'

I dare say, what I have witnessed  in my life time- leaves little doubt, in my mind, at least,that most in the profession(today) are content judging others mental states, by what another "wrote" in a book.

Which is really a shame, because time has away of bring us, as human beings, face to face with our own "true" self.

Life should be lived and not put under a microscope.

Is the climate changing or are earth scientist [geoengineering] deliberately manipulating the weather for profit, or to hide what lay behind the man-made sky covers?

As a 'sky-watcher' I have documented the sky changes, taking place above my head, for many years. I documented what I saw. I made videos and took[still have 100s]of pictures. I posted many videos of what I captured on tape.....on Youtube. It's not surprising to me that all of the 100's of videos,except two,which have been screwed with,have been removed.

I would suggest, instead of always looking down or around when out doors that you look upward. What you see might surprise you.

Note: Banks backing geoengineering, when they own stocks in the companies involved in weather modification, has become the norm:

We endeavor to promote inclusive economic growth and opportunity in communities where we operate. We also work to advance environmental sustainability within our business activities and facilities. Highlights of our recent progress include:

◾Advancing clean finance — Since 2003, JPMorgan Chase committed or arranged over $21 billion in tax equity financing for wind, solar and geothermal energy projects in the United States, including $3.2 billion in JPMorgan Chase investments in 2018.
 
◾Purchasing renewable energy — Advancing sustainability within our physical operations is an important part of our global sustainability strategy. We have made progress towards our commitment, established in 2017, to source renewable energy for 100% of our global power needs by 2020. This commitment builds on our long-standing efforts to reduce our carbon footprint.
 
◾Supporting climate disclosure — We participated in the Task Force for Climate-related Financial Disclosures, and in 2019, we plan to publish a voluntary report about how we are addressing climate-related risks and opportunities.
https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/19617/000119312519098338/d695908ddef14a.htm

Man has already over-stepped the boundary of safety set by nature's god.
Those listening to people like David Keith- should keep in mind- he has much ,money wise, to gain from playing god with the sky.

NOTE:
Carbon dioxide capture  Inventor David Keith Maryam Mahmoudkhani
Current Assignee Carbon Engineering Ltd
Abstract
A method of carbon dioxide capture is disclosed. In a step (a) anhydrous sodium carbonate is separated from a first aqueous solution formed by reacting carbon dioxide and an aqueous solution of sodium hydroxide. In step (b) the anhydrous sodium carbonate is treated by causticization to generate carbon dioxide and sodium hydroxide. The first aqueous solution of step (a) is formed by scrubbing a gas containing carbon dioxide with an aqueous solution of sodium hydroxide.

Note:Mr. Keith Filed for patent in 2008.

Question of the day. Would the 'lower class' person in any country, knowingly sacrifice their heritage, their culture, their very blood,and their country,for 'Capitalism?

As an American who did not go to Harvard or any college or university.Which,I believe, were founded to'brain wash' or introduce new blood into the 'old' corporate system. After researching, companies many call to big to fail, it wouldn't surprise me to hear that anyone from the  American families, who own these companies/business, either died unexpectedly or had went bankrupted. http://thespiritwithinpoetry.com/dead_bankers.html

Private banks, were founded by smart men and women who may/or may not have known the potential threats to mankind and the planet  their separate business endeavor  would create.

In my opinion, Mr. James Dimon is a good example of the mindset of those controlling the money-flow. "anything it takes to win" But, in this writers opinion, Mr. Dimon, is still in the dark,on who has the power to 'pull his strings.'

I live by the  philosophy that in this world, there will always be someone bigger, badder,and smarter. We have just not come face to face with them, yet.

To this American,"Capitalism" is a dirty word.
Anyone who loves freedom and their country should shut their purses to any thing that resembles it.

Paper money was once backed by gold... Today, it is backed by nothing more than worthless talk from bankers.

It makes no sense to buy stocks when ,in my opinion, the stock markets are owned and operated by upper-class crooks.

Just think.The US government give Americans crumbs, in the form of stimulus checks, while giving billion to business owners. It's a provable fact that the US government can/and does create 'money' with nothing to back it but the paper its printed on.

My question: If, in fact US dollars aren't backed by gold,and the government can print paper backed currency at will, why not make ALL  Americans millionaires? That would solve many problems, and boast the economy.

Question of the day. Is your country ready to 'blow'?

Pipelines are generally buried underground and operate in both remote and populated areas, with major crude oil and natural gas pipelines servicing most major Canadian cities. Pipelines are a safe, reliable and environmentally friendly way of transporting oil and gas.

In 2019, there were 614 reported pipeline incidents in the United States, resulting in the death of 10 people, injuries to another 35, and about $259 million in damages. ...Feb 21, 2020Oil and Natural Gas Pipelines
Pipelines are a critical part of Canada’s oil and natural gas infrastructure. Pipelines are the safest and most efficient way to move large volumes of oil and natural gas from development areas to refineries, petrochemical plants and even to our homes and businesses for use.

There are more than 840,000 kilometres (km) [521951.801 miles]of pipelines cross Canada, and they are all regulated (source: Natural Resources Canada). The federal government regulates about 10% of Canada’s pipelines, or more than 73,000 km, which are primarily large transmission pipelines. The remaining pipelines are regulated provincially. https://www.capp.ca/explore/oil-and-natural-gas-pipelines/

The ''federal government'the article is referring to is the US Government. Thousands of Canada's oil and gas pipelines are underground,throughout the United States.

I did research on gas pipeline and I can assure you the United States is not the only country set to 'blow.'

Money,greed,and power placed in greedy hands, is why we are getting a rude awakening, with everything that is taking place in the US and elsewhere.

The thing is, the under ground bunkers[the billionaires have had built, over the years, won't hold but a chosen few-regardless of how much money one has.

Go ahead let the third-man[individuals like Jamie Dimon, choose your stock, and your board members.

NOTE: Transporting oil and gas: the world’s longest pipelines

Talal Husseini
14 September 2018 (Last Updated January 31st, 2020 07:34)
The pipelines that transport oil and gas around the world are objectively a marvellous feat of human engineering. Their sheer size and stretch is something to behold and construction can take several years, if not decades. Where are the world’s longest pipelines and what is the progress on their expansion?

World’s longest pipelines: Natural gas
West-East Gas Pipeline: 8,707km
The West-East Gas Pipeline is operated by PetroChina, which has a 72.26% interest in PetroChina Pipelines. Upon full completion, it will top the list of the world’s longest pipelines. It comprises a main trunkline (phase I) and eight branches. Phase I connects the Tarim Basin gas fields in Xianjing to China’s biggest city, Shanghai, stretching 4,000km. The pipeline passes through no fewer than 66 cities in ten provinces, and the gas is used for electricity production in the Yangtze River Delta.

Originally having the capacity to hold 12 billion cubic metres of natural gas per year, the pipeline was expanded to 17 billion cubic metres in 2007. Ten new gas compressor stations were built to support the extra gas. The total cost of the project was estimated to be $5.7bn.

Phases II and III of the pipeline both stem from the main pipeline, spreading from Xianjing in a number of different directions. The capacity of the second phase pipeline is 30 billion cubic metres of gas per year and cost the company $20bn, while phase III can hold another 30 billion cubic metres annually.

GASUN, Brazil: 4,989km
Still under construction, the National Unification Gas Pipeline (GASUN) will connect the Gasbol pipeline in Bolivia with the northern Amazon and northeast Brazilian states. With a total length of almost 5,000km, the first stage of the pipeline stretches 2,260km from Mato Grosso do Sul in central Brazil to the state of Maranhão, passing through the capital Brasilia. Construction began in 2006 and was scheduled to be completed in 2007.

The Gasbol pipeline connects Bolivia’s reserves in the Rio Grande region to Porto Alegre on Brazil’s southeast coast, stretching 3,150km across two pipelines, with a maximum capacity of 11 billion cubic metres of natural gas. The entire project is expected to be completed in 2026 at a cost of $2.48bn.

In August, five Brazilian companies expressed their interest in purchasing 10 million cubic metres of gas per day from 2020 onwards.

Bolivian Minister of Hydrocarbons and Energy, Luis Sanchez, said in a government newsletter: “We are negotiating new markets to generate better prices and conditions for the Bolivian State and expand the revenues of the country.”

Yamal-Europe Pipeline: 4,196km
The Yamal-Europe pipeline connects the natural gas reserves of Western Siberia in Russia to Austria, stretching 4,196km across Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, and Slovakia. Yamal II redirects from Belarus through Poland to Austria.


With a diameter of 142cm, Yamal-Europe is considered the world’s widest pipeline, able to carry 33 billion cubic metres of natural gas through 14 compressor stations. The majority of the pipeline, which runs through Russia, is owned by national energy giant Gazprom.

There have been plans to build a second leg of the pipeline in the last decade, with Russia investing approximately $5bn in 2013. This could lead to completion of the second leg as early as next year.

Trans-Saharan Pipeline: 4,127km
Still in the development stages, the Trans-Saharan pipeline is planned to stretch 4,127km from the gas-rich lands offshore and onshore Nigeria to the Hassi R’Mel gas fields in Northern Algeria. From there, it splits into the three separate pipelines destined for the European market.

If completed, the pipeline will transport 30 billion cubic metres of gas across the Sahara desert. It is estimated to cost around $13bn in total for pipeline construction and gas gathering stations.

However, a source close to The Guardian told the news agency in March: “The investors are aware that Nigeria is currently facing the challenge of meeting its gas obligation to neighbouring African countries through the West Africa Gas Pipeline Company, due to insecurity in the Niger Delta.

“If we are unable to deliver gas to Ghana and Togo, how can we meet the demand for gas in Europe through the Trans-Sahara Gas Pipeline? Ghana has started looking elsewhere for its gas supply and this is not good for the country and investors in the pipeline project.”

World’s longest pipelines: Crude oil
Eastern Siberia-Pacific Ocean Oil Pipeline: 4,857km
The Eastern Siberia-Pacific Ocean Oil Pipeline (ESPOOP) is a 4,857km project operated by Russian oil transportation company Transneft. Construction of the pipeline began in 2006 near the town of Taishet in the Irkutsk oblast in central Siberia, and will connect Taishet to Kozmino on the eastern Siberian coast through two pipelines connected at Skovorodino near the northern Chinese border.

In 2009, Russia signed a deal with China to construct a separate branch of the pipeline, capable of supplying China with 15 million tonnes of oil, or 300,000 barrels, per day until 2029, in exchange for a loan of $25bn to Transneft and Rosneft for pipeline and oilfield development. Russia began its oil exports to China in January 2011. The pipeline runs from Skovorodino to Daqing and is approximately 992km in length.

As of 2018, Russia is China’s biggest oil supplier and Gazprom plans to build a new 3,000km pipeline that will link Eastern Siberia to the Chinese border states, according to the BBC.

Druzhba Pipeline: 4,000km
The Druzhba pipeline is said to be one of the world’s longest oil pipeline currently completed. Druzhba runs from Almetyevsk in central Russia to Schwedt in northern Germany, incorporating 20 pumping stations along the way. Construction of the pipeline cost around $5.92m and consists of nearly 730,000t of pipe. It has a maximum capacity of 1.2-1.4 million barrels of oil per day, with work currently underway to increase this in the section between Belarus and Poland.

Russian gas company Rosneft is said to be interested in creating a pipeline branch from the Druzhba pipeline to supply more oil refineries in Germany, with executive director of Rosneft-Germany, Brian Chesterman, telling Russian national newspaper Kommersant that it could take three to five years to complete, according to Reuters.

However, VTB capital analysts told Reuters: “Given that the project might require the approval of the European regulators, we think it could well be some time before any potential construction starts.”

Keystone Pipeline: 3,456km
Running from the Keystone Hardisty terminal in Alberta, Canada to the Patoka Oil Terminal Hub in Illinois, US, the Keystone Pipeline transports up to 830,000 barrels of oil per day.

Since its construction, two more phases have been completed, which effectively connect Alberta to Houston, Texas, through joining points at Steele City, Nebraska and Cushing, Oklahoma.

The fourth phase, known as Keystone XL, was designed to connect Albert to Steele City, via a shorter route through Morgan, Montana. However, this phase has been hit with several delays due to protests from environmental groups and the US Environmental Protection Agency over the sensitive terrain and the increased risk of oil spills.

In 2015, the Obama administration delayed the construction of Keystone XL based on these concerns. In an address to the nation on 5 November 2015, Obama said: “America is now a global leader when it comes to taking serious action to fight climate change. And frankly, approving this project would have undercut that global leadership.”

However, President Trump has since revived the project, making an executive order in January last year to permit the Keystone XL project. In November 2017, 210,000 gallons of oil leaked from the pipeline in South Dakota.

Kazakhstan-China Pipeline: 2,798km
The Kazakhstan-China oil pipeline connects Atyrau on the Kazakh Caspian Sea to Xianjing in central China. It is considered to be China’s first direct oil import pipeline from central Asia, carrying 20 million tonnes of oil, or 142 million barrels per year.

The pipeline is supplied by both the Aktobe region oil fields and the Kumkol field in Kazakhstan, as well as by the offshore Kashagan field in the Caspian Sea. It is also used to transport oil from Russia’s western Siberia to the Atasu oil terminal in the Karaganda region of Kazakhstan.

The recent decision by five Caspian Sea states on maritime sovereignty has opened the region to explore more than 20 billion barrels of oil and 6.8 trillion cubic metres of natural gas, paving the way for greater exports to Europe via the Trans-Caspian pipeline.

Question of the day:  Should one push their lifestyle on other people?

A court in China’s eastern Jiangsu province recently ruled in favour of a publisher that described homosexuality as a “psychological disorder” in a university textbook.

As an American, I support, the court in China's ruling.

It is a mental disorder.

Until you've had children, or grandchildren sexually molested/raped by a pervert...don't defend the sick mindset of gays/lesbians  to me.

It's a person's choice [true] but keep your sex life to yourself. I'm sure there were people of the same sex having sex, when I was growing up, but they respected themselves enough to keep their sex life in the bedroom.

Once being gay meant being happy and nothing more.  Thank you China.

Question of the day: Which department in state/or federal government approves/disapproves  which country/countries  Americans pay to ship food products into the United States?

As an American, I do NOT approve of  buying food, from any other country, that can be grown in the United States of America...  And if ANY country is illegally shipping/bringing, any kind of product, in to my country-you are on notice - [read it any way you want to]

Question of the day that won't be answered until another day:

Are computer programmers responsible, for the world of crime growing all across the internet?

There is Nothing private on the internet- just peoples' private and non-private  information stored on gigantic computers,that have been created to store the life history of anyone/and everyone. It's  my guess the computers storing the information is used to blackmail and/or manipulate individuals and events- by those who call themselves 'owners' of the information.

Computers, thanks to computer technology, and computer programmers-in my opinion is now the number one threat to the whole of humanity.

Question of the day: Should the American government ,or any government, have world power [dictatorship] over another country and its people?

China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States are often called world powers by academics due to "their political and economic dominance of the global arena." They are the only nations to have permanent seats with veto power on the UN Security Council.

Anyone who believes that the United Nations was created to bring about world peace needs to read their own history.

As an American, going to a public school in the 50's and 60's, I was taught about my country,its people, and other countries and their people. I was spared [along with other students] any kind of negative about other countries and their people. I don't know what other students drew from being educated by a public education system, but I learned to respect all people and their countries. I even had a pen-pal [Linda] who lived in Finland.

The United Nations is a hard pill to swallow. My father ,who was a WWII veteran, seemed to have lost respect for any kind of dominant authority. Doing research on many subjects, and knowing my government's part in world affairs, make me a shame that people [American voters] so willingly put so many American lives on the butcher block. They should have vote for the person! Not the party.

I am a 100% American....so much so I would give up something I want from life....to insure that the blood-sweat and tears, that have long nurtured the 'Liberty tree,'  were not given 'freely' in vein.

Should the American government ,or any government, have world power [dictatorship] over another country and its people?

The United States of America's people are not the slaves of any man... or country.

If you truly love your people-work to shut the UN down.

Question of the day:    What's the real story behind the United Nations, one power agenda?

The onset of the Second World War showed that the League of Nations had failed its primary purpose, which was to prevent any future world war. The League lasted for 26 years; the United Nations (UN) replaced it after the end of the Second World War and inherited several agencies and organisations founded by the League.

The United States refused to join the League of Nations!
Interesting ,after WWII, its described as a founding member of the UN[the offspring of the League of Nations].

What's the real story behind the forming of the League of Nation [the United Nations]?


Added March 18,2021:
 "When I cast my mind back to 1927, the year that I first joined the
     Council, it seems little short of a miracle that the organization
     could have taken root in those days. You will remember that the
     United States had decided not to join the League of Nations.... On
     the domestic front, the budget was extremely small, taxes were
     light ... and we didn't even recognize the Russians. What could
     there possibly be for a Council on Foreign Relations to do?

     "Well, there were a few men who did not feel content with that
     comfortable isolationist climate. They thought the United States
     had an important role to play in the world and they resolved to try
     to find out what that role ought to be. Some of those men are
     present this evening."

Don't under-estimate the American people..... Knowledge is power.
History has away of coming to the forefront. Communist haven't  changed -neither have Americans.

I was born and raised wearing hand me down shoes and clothes-but I was richer by far than those who thought themselves 'my betters.'  I'd take love over riches and fame any day.
