Yeah It’s Done

November 30, 2012

I down-graded from Windows 8 to Windows 7 and installed a new SSD in the new PC,it all works fine. Fast is the word for SSDs. I put in a VERTEX 4 slightly behind the latest but cheap enough. It’s 128 GB and the old Win 8 boot dish is now Disk to. I am trying to figure out how to do the Apple Fusion Drive next.

SSDs are now less than $1 a GB.

Really fast. Laptop is next SSD upgrade, for me, as the battery on mine is getting weak. SSD s, improves battery use over the old HD.


EPA Latest Useless Meddling: New E15 Gasoline May Damage Vehicles and Cause Consumer Confusion

November 30, 2012

Me I don’t care I have a new model E-15 capable vehicle, but other’s may not. I just happened to have to trade in my 10 year old vehicle this year, so I bought a new car, err Jeep.

ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — A recent survey by AAA finds a strong likelihood of consumer confusion and the potential for voided warranties and vehicle damage as a result of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) recent approval of E15 gasoline. An overwhelming 95 percent of consumers surveyed have not heard of E15, a newly approved gasoline blend that contains up to 15 percent ethanol. …

Only about 12 million out of the more than 240 million light-duty vehicles on the roads today are approved by manufacturers to use E15 gasoline, based on a survey conducted by AAA of auto manufacturers.

Over The Past Six Years, The United States Has Reduced Its Carbon Emissions More than Any Other Nation In The World: And For That Thank FRACKING And Natural Gas It Produces With The New/Old Technology..

November 30, 2012

Over the past six years, the United States has reduced its carbon emissions more than any other nation in the world.

Efforts to curb so-called man-made climate change had little or nothing to do with it. Government mandated “green” energy didn’t cause the reductions. Neither did environmentalist pressure. And the U.S. did not go along with the Kyoto Protocol to radically cut CO2 emissions. Instead, the drop came about through market forces and technological advances, according to a report from the International Energy Agency.

And best of all Obama didn’t do it, the private economy did it.

Oil As A Weapon

November 30, 2012

Yes Jimmy Carter was upended on the Arab oil embargo over Israel and the Yom Kippur war of 1973. The Iranian Hostage crisis actually did the deed, but lets move on to our main subject

But lets step back and see what the conditions are today.

Let’s start with some numbers. The United States currently uses about nineteen million barrels a day, of which about eleven are imported, mostly from within the Western Hemisphere. Imports from the Persian Gulf supply about 15 percent of total U.S. oil demand, a share that has declined over time.

Imports from the Persian Gulf cost $73 billion in 2011, of which Iraq received around $20 billion. So, if the multi-billions dollar Iraq war really was a “war for oil,” it was exceptionally ill-advised.

Obama’s Bud Not Doing Well: Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez Battling Bone Metastasis

November 30, 2012

But I bet if anybody knows count on the CUba Commie Hospitals to give the best of care.

Fox News reports:

Venezuela President Hugo Chávez is now battling bone metastasis from his pelvic cancer, according to a report by Spanish newspaper ABC. Citing an unnamed intelligence source, ABC’s Washington correspondent Emil J. Blasco says there has been a recurrence and spread of the tumor, which was detected in a test performed on a trip to Havana just after the elections on October 7.

BBC Confirms That Polar Melt Has Almost No Effect On Sea Level

November 30, 2012

Read the Full Article

‘Melting of polar ice sheets has added 11mm to global sea levels over the past two decades, according to the most definitive assessment so far’

Real Science analysis: ‘Two inches of sea level rise over the next 100 years’

Most of that is just natural variability. Climate always changes … Sea level has gone up 400 feet since the last Ice Age. These two inches are easily seen as measurement error.

Heck back when. CO2 was 8-10 times what it is today, and what did the extra plant food do, it caused plants to grow. In fact their is a scientific school of thought that say today’s CO2 level is too low for optimum. Can you imagine what increased crop yields would do now???

Another One Goes Plop: Solar Firm That Got $26M In Miss. Loans Is Closing

November 30, 2012

A cheap $10 calculator would allow you to figure out the inevitable. What does this make now 51, green company busts since he started taxpayer funding of the losers companies –In case You don’t know this is how crony capitalism, for the intellect challenged Obama voters, works.

Here is the details from WLOX:

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – Mississippi taxpayers may have only an empty Senatobia building and some solar panel equipment to show for nearly $26 million in loans provided to Twin Creeks Technologies.

The California-based solar technology firm is liquidating, and a company that bought Twin Creeks’ assets does not intend to take over its agreement with Mississippi. The contract called for Twin Creeks to invest at least $132 million and create at least 500 jobs.

The Mississippi Development Authority’s Kathy Gelston says officials are negotiating for Twin Creeks to repay aid above the value of the building and equipment.

Lenders sold Twin Creeks’ technology for $10 million to GT Advanced Technologies of Nashua, N.H., in mid-November. Gelston says Twin Creeks received about $3 million from the sale, but says there are creditors beyond Mississippi.

Their is no viable business case for solar electricity, nor Wind power, except for sailboat use. The WIND Power lawsuits should be coming right along/ Wait for them…..


Upstream Supply Chain Sees Surface RT Orders Cut By Half

November 30, 2012

Is there any reason you know that MS fired the Windows 8 head honcho? I am not impressed with my Surface sit down session. No Sale, it’s too neutered for me.

DIGITIMES [Wednesday 28 November 2012]:

The upstream supply chain of Microsoft’s Surface RT has recently seen the tablet’s orders reduced by half, and with other Windows RT-based tablet orders also seeing weak performance, sources from the upstream supply chain believe the new operating system may not perform as well as expected in the market.

Microsoft originally expected to ship four million Surface RT devices by the end of 2012, but has recently reduced the orders by half to only two million units.

Although Asustek Computer, Samsung Electronics and Dell have all launched Windows RT-based tablets, consumer demand for those devices is also weak.

The sources also pointed out that Surface RT is also unlikely to achieve great performance in the upcoming quarter which may force Microsoft to bring out its Intel-based Surface Pro tablet earlier in December.

The sources also noted that Microsoft may consider reducing its Surface Pro price to attract more consumers; however, such a decision may put the already awkward relationship between the software giant and notebook vendors in an even worse situation.

No surprise to me.

I am still slogging through my brand new Windows 8 machine’s conversion back to a SSD running Windows 7. So far, slow going. Apple’s Fusion Drive software would be nice to integrate a SSD into Windows.

Looks like I need a book to figure out how???


Eurozone Unemployment Rate Hits New High In October

November 30, 2012

The socialist paradise that is EuroZone achieves another milestone today. Ever heard of a two speed economy? Are we talking government elites and the peasants?

The eurozone’s unemployment rate hit a new record high in October, while consumer price rises slowed sharply.

The jobless rate in the recessionary euro area rose to 11.7%. Inflation fell from 2.5% to 2.2% in November.

The data came as European Central Bank president Mario Draghi warned the euro would not emerge from its crisis until the second half of next year.

Government spending cuts would continue to hurt growth in the short-term, Mr Draghi said.

Growth is now measured in government spending. Imagine what that does to savings accounts? I am confused, where do they get the money, they just print it. And how is that anything but lying to themselves? YES it is…. And then? And then? Suddenly???

So Why Work?

November 30, 2012

…”In Entitlement America, The Head Of A Household Of Four Making Minimum Wage Has More Disposable Income Than A Family Making $60,000 A Year.” In it we merely explained what has become the painful reality in America: for increasingly more it is now more lucrative – in the form of actual disposable income – to sit, do nothing, and collect various welfare entitlements, than to work. This is graphically, and very painfully confirmed, in the below chart…

You need to study this chart…

income_benefits_chart

The single mom is better off earning gross income of $29,000  with  57,327 in net income and benefits than to earn a gross income of 69,000 with net income and benefits of $57,045.

Why we have so many fatherless children, ya think? The nanny state has replaced the fathers.
