ETERNITY AND THE WEATHER CYCLE

ETERNITY AND THE WEATHER

Just sharing a little scientific facts from my Perch.


Our Solar system is ruled by our Sun and the weather is cyclical. It takes the planet Earth 365 days to travel around the Sun, and it takes our solar system 220 Million years to travel around the Milky way. As to Weather “Climate” change, we have no idea what we are in for, as the Milky way is ‘one of many Billions of galaxies’ each ‘potentially effecting’ it, as well as our Solar system. There is no doubt that our Planet is in a slightly warming trend, but does not even come close to the the dramatic changes that have occurred on Planet Earth in the past millions if not billions of years. As an additional ponder as to the warming of the planet Earth; Earth has been in the current Ice age for over one (1) million years. Modern man as we know it, did not appear until about 50,000 years ago, as the last warming of the planet provided a temperature rise that man could live and survive in. There is no record of modern man before 200,000 years ago. The ending of the past large ice age about 12,500 is when the modern man replaced the Neanderthals, as they became extinct about 12,500 years ago.

IF YOU DO NOT REMEMBER THE PAST, YOU ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT IT.

Be careful what you wish you for!

Not so long ago there was no television, only public exchange gatherings, radio, print, academia, and of course teachers providing students the history of Germany and the rest of Europe. In the late 1930’s, A radical by the name of Adolph Hitler took total control of all sources of information, within the short span of three years, anyone questioning him was considered a traitor to the Third Reich.

If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.

Unfortunately for those living in the 1930’s through the mid-1940’s many found their leadership in Chancellor Adolph Hitler. They embraced the word of ‘der fuhrer’ in the National Socialist German Workers Party (or Nazi Party) and followed him lock-step towards German Expansionism and the Aryan nation (Master Race-Herrenrasse)  which of course a predominant amount Germans and other northern European peoples, in their eyes; deemed the highest in racial hierarchy, a work in progress. This he sought to establish as a New Order along with seeking discriminatory legislation against Jews, as they were a threat to his New Order, as they were the bankers, the proprietors and held much sway due to this.

He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future.

Not long after he began this quest, he saw the threat of dissension in academia, as he also needed a scapegoat, he maintained that the Jews in Germany should be eliminated (later millions were exterminated), along with the opposing Academics those very people who initially supported his cause, were now the enemy, along with Poles, Gypsies, Homosexuals and Communist, he ordered his Gestapo (official political secret police of Nazi Germany and German-occupied Europe) to arrest those who spoke out against him and subsequently history shows us that tens of thousands of those very people who initially supported him found themselves in death camps, prison, disappeared or shot. This end results he almost accomplished, had it not for the combined forces of the United States and Russia. His only threat in building his New Order was past history, so his plan; ‘wipe it out, and now you are the historian’. The Germans held mass Book turnings in an attempt to erase history, in the end, only his words were considered true, as a side note; In Austria-Hungary, which was Hitler’s country of birth, weapons were outlawed, consequently in short order, when the German army invaded Austria, nary a shot was fired, as the populace had little to no protection from the invaders.

When you deprive people of their history, you deprive them of power.

Ruth Winegarten

Without yesterday’s historical references there is little reference; as history has long shown that knowledge of the past is the story that helps us deal with the future. Yet, it would appear that many today feel that past history is unnecessary and not representative of today’s modern thinking, unless of course, it is presented and carried out in their specific way of thinking, as in their eyes, ‘you are a racist if you believe otherwise’. The left now feels: “I disapprove of what you say, therefore, you may not say it.” So much for freedom of Speech at the other spectrum”.

Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.

The view from my Perch regarding Petroleum

GaryDid you know ?, insulation,clothing,blankets,gasoline,heating oil,tooth paste,key boards,USB's,House paint,bras,detergents,, new green movement, petroleum elimination, petroleum facts, petroleum products, Regarding Petroleum

The absurdity of stopping the use of petroleum in the next 10 years is simply unrealistic, impossible and laced with stupidity and ignorance.

The platform of the Green New Deal movement is demanding the elimination of the use of Petroleum, Coal and Natural gas, replacing it with Wind and Solar power-NOT!

As to the people who soak up this tripe and shout it as an absolute fact and necessity, you are totally uniformed with regard to reality and understanding.

It would appear that it will be next to impossible to ever replace all of these products below from alternative sources, but an all-out assault in seeking alternatives is a must do, as there are thousands and thousands of products derived from Petroleum.

A lesson to those who obviously not done their research with regard to the end product(s) derived from Petroleum;

The down-product line-up is staggering. Imagine your World with no oil to make all of the petroleum-based products, as well as the failure of the economy.

A small compilation below “some” of the down-line of products produced from Petroleum and Natural Gas.

A VIEW FROM MY PERCH

Journalism has left the building

As a whole, the “majority” of mainstream media organizations, as well as much of the smaller U.S. News organizations now exhibit vindictive behavior, hate, biased facts and sensationalism. This began years ago, but when Donald Trump became President, they hit the all-time low of acidic approach, and in many cases provide inaccurate one-sided news – full speed forward and forget the facts, be damned the truth, a retraction of false reporting and altered facts, what is that? Fortunately, there are still a few organizations today, who report with much less sensationalism, reporting the news and not slanting the truths, to fit their political cause.

There was a time when the great newspapers and televised News organizations in America provided great professional Journalism with regard to news. Today that form of true journalism is for all intent and purpose-a foregone story. It is dead, and as to any resemblance to true journalism, it is now on the fringes of extinction.

We are now provided our news in a manner of the likes of the supermarket tabloids. Most do not even realize that every news organization subscribes to United Press International (UPI) as their major source of information and reporting material, as for those doubting souls? Spend a few minutes viewing the sensational evening news, take note and listen to their stories, you will find that the big four, all present the story in almost the same words, along with, of course, their own spin of sensationalism and altered facts, yet it appears that they are all reading the same copy furnished from a single editorial source. The vast majority of today’s factual news and professionalism is an insult to the likes of Peter Jennings, Tom Brokaw, Walter Cronkite, Mike Wallace, Edward R. Murrow, David Brinkley and those other like professionals from the past, who were representatives of truth and providing professional journalistic reporting.

We appear to have found ourselves in an atmosphere lacking true professional journalistic reporting and their subsequent amoral behavior in providing the truth in reporting in America. As an alternate news source, interestingly enough, today over half of adults get at least some news on social media, such as Twitter, YouTube and Snapchat serving as their sources for news for many of their users. Perhaps this source is at the minimum-less sensationalism and maybe not so wrought up in hatred and deceit, at least the author hopes so; I pray.

We certainly can no longer believe the majority of large network media and print organizations reporting truth in the United States, for their honesty and factual professionalism has left the building.

From my perch

By Gary T. Petler

The record of failure of large companies is replete with examples of how the giant corporations faltered and some totally collapsed. For example, IBM, Xerox, NCR, Macy’s, Rexall, Woolworth, Sears and the other giants of the last 75 years, the steel companies and hundreds of others. Why? Serious competition, labor cost and the failure to meet problems and make quick decisions.

Which brings us to the present, the Internet as an example. When the www came to fruition in the 1990’s, many players got into the action, some too late and some with a unique’ niche’.  Born in this period was the likes of Netscape (Mosaic), Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, America Online (AOL), and later Yahoo, Google knocking the others out of the market, excepting that of the greatly reduced presence of Internet Explorer. The reason for this blunder by Microsoft was simple, they were too large to quickly initiate change, as well as the task was not within their business model.

In time, other than Yahoo and Google, the early spear headers have shrunk or been bought up by their competitors, such as Microsoft, Yahoo, Google and of course, Time Warner’s really bad decision to tie in with AOL, which is likely the worst financial event in the history of the very successful Time/Warner Brothers Company, they overpaid a bundle for this browser and it was not worth a whole lot in actual value-standing by itself.

Case (no pun intended Steve Case) in point, in the midst of these coming-to-life companies, came an out of the garage and Volvo trunk delivery book seller, naming his startup “Amazon”, which “sold books online” This company has grown exponentially and continues to expand its product line and services, most unfortunate for some big retailers like Costco (who sells just about everything, which is now also sold through Amazon) and Target, Those who sell office supplies, Office Depot and Staples are in the gun-sights of Amazon, In short; labor, facilities for products, resource transportation and the fickle buying public. At Amazon they are already experiencing disgruntled employees’ problems, in spite of their continued effort to keep up, and then there is the problem of consumer complaints. Amazon also has to be looking over its shoulder at a company named wikibuy; a perfect example of the kid in the garage, likely not really a serious problem, yet!

 Bill Gates (Microsoft Co-founder) was once ask? What is your biggest competitive fear? his response, “A kid in his garage”. In the above case, for some, it was one person named Jeff Bezos, hence Amazon, who took down the majority of retail book sellers and neighborhood book stores in the United States, and now is focused on the entire retail market sector in its entirety, making it all via on-line thru the Amazon machine. Another case in point is that of Ebay. It too has experienced the threat of Amazon, the difference as to its survival is that Ebay is not in the inventory business, but that of a middle man in exchange for a fee, where the majority of Amazon is bound to products stored on the shelves for shipment in most cases, hence tremendous overhead in storage and handling.

Then there is the other kid on the block with a difference with regard to the purchasing public, Alababa has a potential purchasing audience of billions, most of whom will be loyal to it, as long as they keep up their customer service quality, and they really work hard at it (so does Amazon). This giant will be around for a long time, since its market is potentially a huge amount of Asia’s billions of people, thus it will continue to grow. It like Ebay has little product storage to house for advertised customer products and subsequent shipment, as Amazon-does, which again, requires staffing and inventory/storage and shipping facilities nationwide.

Which now brings us back to the Internet Browsers. The giant currently is Google (Alphabet) “Chrome, followed by the struggling one time giant “Yahoo”. Obviously, most utilize Google and Internet Explorer and Apples Safari, but the odd’s say that in the next five years, Yahoo will begin regaining it market share at the expense of Google and another unnamed startup. Not to mention the possibility of another ‘kid in the garage’, who has a better and more appealing browser product. It is worth mentioning here that should Microsoft or Apple somehow end up buying Yahoo, this could well be a real challenge for Google.  Google simply cannot keep expanding, again it is; facilities, employees, and most of all the fickle user public and subsequently the advertisers, without whom, they are toast, not to mention that of the now potential oversight by the government, due to user information. Then there are the likes of the social networking website Facebook and its continued long-term use. It too will have the very same consequences the others face: the kid in the garage who is already nibbling at Facebook”.

Walmart is one the largest giant-of-giants (approaching $500 billion in sales last year), it also needs to re-think its continued expansion. They have pretty much saturated the US market, and can only grow as the population grows. They have obliterated the competition when it comes to apparel, housewares and grocery chains and in most cases, the demise of the ‘Mom & Pop’ stores nationwide. The exception being the small neighborhood convenience stores, they have a smaller need for employees, less cost for facilities (cost per square foot), yet have a very large consumer base, due to location and “Convenience” as well as the ability to also sell gasoline, which is their anchor product of which initially brings in many of their customers. People still flock to these convenience stores, and in most cases, pay more for items, because of sheer convenience (Ace Hardware also charges more, but again, it is quality & convenience). Walmart entered in this market and pulled the plug within a year or so, why? they are too big to adjust in a local market mindset and their superstores cannot function in cities with populations of less than 8500-due to square foot economics. Interestingly, as Walmart business model could not work in this small market, there is now thousands of “Dollar Type” stores throughout the United States, and they are prospering where Walmart could not, this is what happens when companies such as Walmart, simply cannot move quickly due to their business model and, they are just too big and their overhead is massive.

Having outlined just some of the ups and downs of the competition, the present big kid on the block Walmart and that of Amazon have to deal with the potentially largest on-line provider in the world of just about everything and it is called Alababa. Their potential market is within five years of serving all of Asia, and the U.S.A. is certainly in their sights. The threat of very serious competition never ends, as the graveyard of failure is full with those who failed.

As Amazon continues its monumental growth pretty much unchecked- to date, it too has on the horizon an obstacle that could well bring on the government’s intervention; due to the possibility of having being charged with Anti-trust violations, this is an almost sure thing, as Amazons is smothering almost every competitor they go after. Of course, in no way would this diminish the personal wealth of Jeff & McKenzie Bezos. If anything, they began with very little, and through sheer brilliance and Amazons incredible developmental teams, deserves their wealth.

In the end, Amazon will gain, the Government will lose. The Dog and Pony show will eventually happen, Politician’s love this opportunity to grandstand, albeit, actually when they speak, it shows their true ignorance in understanding the world of business, for most no very little.

Gp
