process engineering



sorting thoughts, finally ate, getting clarity and thought: mashup! :) then read:

AQ 1608 = IT WAS A CREED WRITTEN IN THE FOUNDING DOCUMENTS THAT DECLARED THE DESTINY OF A NATION: YES WE CAN ({10:50} 08-Jan-2008 · Barack Obama speaks in Nashua, New Hampshire on the night of the primary • Yes We Can Song) = CONTRIBUTE A BETTER APPROACH TO PERSONAL COMPUTING OVERALL, AND MANY INDIVIDUAL PARTS OF IT (Personal Computing As A Self-Exploratorium) = ICONIC REPRESENTATIONS THAT HAVE A POWERFUL EMOTIONAL IMPACT IN THE DAILY LIVES OF LEARNERS (conscientização) = MEETING ON THE NIGHT OF THE FULL MOON IN JULY, THIS MOON IS KNOWN TO SOME AS THE THUNDER MOON (Ritual of the Thunder Moon) = THE MIND OF THE MARKET. CALL ME A BIPOLAR BEAR. OR A MANIC-DEPRESSIVE BULL. JUST DON'T CALL ME IRRATIONAL! (Stanley Bing, Fortune, Volume 164, Number 7) = THE ZOHAR ALSO SPEAKS OF THE OFANIM/ANGELS HAVING A RELATIONSHIP TO FOUR QUARTERS OF THE GLOBE (Ezekiel's Chariot).

what i've been really wanting to do is focus on that deceptive bow: how "bow" relates to the Tree of Life, how different tree schemes assign אמש {AMSh}, whether Achad's scheme provides any insight, and how this could be utilized (eg, developing new crew/cargo vehicles for space exploration & other things). what made me post TNC links here: i agree, we need deeper insight about the scope, impact & influence of slavery — the ABCs & 123s not open to debate. iow, a "bow" of discourse creating effective whatevers. or, engineering your way out of any problem (which reminded me i used to be a quality assurance engineer & that's probably how i'm looking at that bow). imho, Newark NJ Mayor Cory Booker is a powerful example operating from a space (civil rights) with the expectation (marriage equality) of support (being the direct heritage & legacy of the civil rights movement).

AQ 5093 = BUT DEAR GOD, WE SHOULD NOT BE PUTTING CIVIL RIGHTS ISSUES TO A POPULAR VOTE TO BE SUBJECT TO THE SENTIMENTS AND THE PASSIONS OF THE DAY. NO MINORITY SHOULD HAVE THEIR RIGHTS SUBJECT TO THE PASSIONS AND SENTIMENTS OF THE MAJORITY. THIS IS THE FUNDAMENTAL BEDROCK OF WHAT OUR NATION STANDS FOR (Mayor Booker Responds to Question about NJ Marriage Equality Referendum) = THUS THE BLOWING OF THE TRUMPETS, WHICH WAS A SECONDARY THING ON OTHER FESTIVALS, BECAME THE CHIEF AND DISTINGUISHING FEATURE OF THIS FESTIVAL. HENCE ITS NAME, YVM. THRVOTH, THE DAY ON WHICH THE TRUMPETS WERE ESPECIALLY BLOWN; OR, THE DAY ON WHICH THE BLOWING WAS PECULIARLY CHARACTERISTIC (NUMB, XXIX, 1) (Day of Trumpet-Blowing).

AQ 5536 = NAME AND ITS SIGNIFICATION, AND THE IMPORT OF THIS FESTIVAL. — IN THE TWO PASSAGES WHERE THE INSTITUTION OF IT OCCURS, THIS FESTIVAL IS CALLED זכרון תרועה {ZKRVN. ThRVOH}, REMEMBRANCE BLOWING, I.E. OF TRUMPETS (LEVITICUS 23:24; SEPT. μνημόσυνον σαλπίγγων {MNHMOSUNON SALPIGGON}; VULG. SABBATUM MEMORIALE CLANGENTIBUS TUBIS), AND יום תרועה {YVM ThRVOTh}, THE DAY OF BLOWING, I.E. THE TRUMPETS (NUMBERS 29:1; SEPT. ἡμέρα σημασίας {HMERA SHMASIAV}; VULG. DIES CLANGORIS ET TUBARUM) = THE NAMES OF THE 72 ANGELS OF THE LADDER OF JACOB - THE 72 GREAT ANGELS OF THE SHEMHAMPHORASH (TO WHICH GREAT MAGICAL PROPERTIES WERE ATTACHED), WERE FIRST INSCRIBED ON THE OBVERSE AND REVERSE OF 36 MEDALS AND USED AS KABALISTIC TALISMANS. THESE WERE IDENTIFIED WITH THE 36 DECANS OF THE ZODIAC, VIEWED ASTROLOGICALLY, AND USED FOR DIVINATION ACCORDINGLY (The Problem of the Tarot Cards) = {something about a pulitzer}.

AQ 5357 = THE WORD "QABALAH" IS DERIVED FROM THE HEBREW ROOT QBL, MEANING "TO RECEIVE", AND FROM THIS SOURCE WE MAY INDEED RECEIVE OF THE FRUIT OF THE "TREE OF LIFE". WE MUST FIRST, HOWEVER, LEARN TO TRANSCEND THE "KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL" AND, IN FACT, ALL THE SO-CALLED "PAIRS OF OPPOSITES," FOR IT IS WRITTEN "EQUILIBRIUM IS THE BASIS OF THE WORK" (Q.B.L., Or the Bride's Reception) = {Afghanistan; strategic objectives}.

AQ 7986 = BANKS SHOULD FIRST USE PRIVATE SOURCES OF CAPITAL, INCLUDING THROUGH RESTRUCTURING AND CONVERSION OF DEBT TO EQUITY INSTRUMENTS. BANKS SHOULD BE SUBJECT TO CONSTRAINTS REGARDING THE DISTRIBUTION OF DIVIDENDS AND BONUS PAYMENTS UNTIL THE TARGET HAS BEEN ATTAINED. IF NECESSARY, NATIONAL GOVERNMENTS SHOULD PROVIDE SUPPORT, AND IF THIS SUPPORT IS NOT AVAILABLE, RECAPITALISATION SHOULD BE FUNDED VIA A LOAN FROM THE EFSF IN THE CASE OF EUROZONE COUNTRIES (EU summit: live coverage of debt crisis talks) = UNFORTUNATELY, JONES SOON CONCLUDED THAT HE HAD LEAP-FROGGED OVER CROWLEY TO THE ULTIMATE GRADE OF IPSISSIMUS (1°=10) AT THE TOP OF THE TREE OF LIFE; BUT, UNABLE TO MANAGE SO GREAT AN ATTAINMENT, HE PLUNGED DOWN THE TREE'S CENTRAL SHAFT BACK TO ITS BASE AS A NEOPHYTE (10°=1). TO MATCH THE REVERSAL OF HIS GRADE FROM 1°=10 TO 10°=1, JONES EXPANDED HIS NEW MOTTO FROM OIV (OMNIA IN UNUM, "ALL IN ONE") TO OIVVIO (OMNIA IN UNUM, UNUS IN OMNIA). HEARING THE NEWS ON AUGUST 21, 1916, CROWLEY WAS, AS MIGHT BE EXPECTED, SURPRISED ({308} Perdurabo: The Life of Aleister Crowley) = {descriptive list}.

AQ 6600 = WE ENTERED THE CASTLE, AND CAME TO THE ROOM WHERE I HAD STUDIED THE BOOKS OF PAST LIVES. THE YOUNG WOMAN WHO WAS THE EARTH LOOKED ABOUT, AND PULLED A BOOK OFF THE SHELVES. "WHAT IS THIS?" SHE ASKED. I LOOKED AT THE BOOK, AND ITS COVER SHOWED THE EGYPTIAN SYMBOL OF THE EYE. I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS IN IT, SO I SUGGESTED WE LOOK. THE BOOK WAS PLACED ONTO A STAND, AND I OPENED THE COVER. THE FIRST PAGE WITHIN IT WAS BLANK.61 (Touring the Earth Tablet) = {special commemorative edition}.

AQ 361 = V·I·O·O·I·V • PAR-ZIV • 777 [AL] 418 • אחד • 13 (Achad's Lamen) = WINTER SOLSTICE OF 2012.

AQ 413 = V·I·O·O·I·V • PAR-ZIV • 777 [AL] 418 • AChD • 13 (Achad's Lamen) = IPSISSIMUS OF THE AEON = RENDEZVOUS 'N' DOCK PLACE = SPECIES INTELLIGIBILIS = STABLE, POINTED STILBON (A Translation of Theorems 1-17 of John Dee's 'Monas Hieroglyphica').

AQ 2084 = OPERATING FROM A SPACE (CIVIL RIGHTS) WITH THE EXPECTATION (THE LEGACY OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT) OF SUPPORT (EQUALITY) = FURTHERMORE, IF THE PRONUNCIATION HAD BEEN INVENTED BY DEE, SURELY HE WOULD HAVE COME UP WITH SOMETHING MORE CONSISTENT! (Enochian Pronunciation Guide • Zod) = TAURUS 16° AN OLD MAN IS ATTEMPTING WITH A DEGREE OF SUCCESS UNSUSPECTED BY HIM TO REVEAL THE MYSTERIES TO A MOTLEY GROUP = THE SEVENTH SECRET SEAL. OF THE MOST OBEDIENAT ANGELS, CŒLI CŒLORUM LEGIONUM OVER THE ANGELS OF THE SEVEN PLANETS AND SPIRITS (7th Seal • Moses' Magical Spirit-Art).

OBEDIENAT?

AQ 2074 = THE SEVENTH SECRET SEAL. OF THE MOST OBEDIENT ANGELS, CŒLI CŒLORUM LEGIONUM OVER THE ANGELS OF THE SEVEN PLANETS AND SPIRITS = AND FROM THE RAYS OF THIS TRIAD THERE APPEAR THREE COLOURS IN MALKUTH TOGETHER WITH A FOURTH WHICH IS THEIR SYNTHESIS (Malkuth) = GRUNDRISSE STOOD ALONE AS ISSUING FORTH FROM THE MOST INTENSE PERIOD OF MARX’S DECADE-LONG, IN-DEPTH STUDY OF ECONOMICS (Grundrisse) = MODERNISTS LIKE POUND AND OLSON WERE ALSO COMMITTED TO CHANGE WHAT THEY SAW AS CAPITALISM'S FALSE VALUATION OF THE HUMAN (Poetry of Play, Poetry of Purpose).

ok, nothing to see here. don't have to retype 2074 from my old pc to my netbook, but why is 2074 in 5000.txt? let me check…

05671=MAYBE THE PIPER WILL NEVER HAVE TO BE PAID. MAYBE THE DEFICITS WILL SOMEDAY MAGICALLY RIGHT THEMSELVES. MAYBE SOME PROSPEROUS FUTURE GENERATION WILL BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO CLEAN UP THE MESS WE LEFT BEHIND. IF NONE OF THAT IS TRUE, WE SHOULD START LOOKING NOW FOR SOME REAL MONEY SOMEWHERE. A STOCK TRANSFER TAX IS NOT A BAD PLACE TO START | (AQ-327 WHERE THE MONEY IS = JUST INTONATION • Bob Herbert • January 12, 2009)02074=SO, ANYWAY, THERE YOU HAVE IT: AMERICA'S BEST COMICS, WORKING NIGHT AND DAY TO PRODUCE COMICS THAT ARE, LIKE, THE BEST. UH, IN AMERICA | (America's Best Comics)

normally i'd ignore, but it looks kinda mashupy. (sometimes when i copy stuff into GemCalc the first line gets accidentally appended, since GemCalc doesn't count anything after "|" i may not notice).

AQ 792 = A STOCK TRANSFER TAX IS NOT A BAD PLACE TO START = HANNAH ARENDT: THE RECOVERY OF THE PUBLIC WORLD = MAY THE CREATOR DECREE FOR YOU A HAPPY NEW YEAR (Day of Trumpet-Blowing) = ST. AMBROSE OF MILAN, PATRON SAINT OF BEEKEEPERS = THE PURPOSE IS SIMPLE, THE PROCEDURE MORE SO.

AQ 481 = START: STOCK TRANSFER TAX = 21-DEC-1985 WINTER SOLSTICE @ 22:07:392645 UT (Touring the Earth Tablet) = SIGMA TAU IOTA LAMBDA BETA OMEGA (glitter, gleam • GRK-1342 στίλβω • see STILBON) = THE BOOK OF WISDOM OR FOLLY = VYKHOZHU ODIN IA NA DOROGU (Mikhail Lermontov) [+][+][+][+][+].

AQ 463 = VÏKHOZHU ODIN YA NA DOROGU = THE CHERUB WITH SIX WINGS.

AQ 569 = I ZVEZDA S ZVEZDOYU GOVORIT (AQ-412 AND STAR SPEAKS TO STAR) = BAL IS THE SWORD, AND TAN THE BALANCES (TAN, 17th Aethyr) = MY INTERPRETATION OF ACHAD'S CABALA (Touring the Earth Tablet) = NUMEROLOGICAL CONSTRUCTIONS (AQ-412 GEMATRIA IS SELF-EVIDENT) = THE ARCHANGEL OF BINAH IS TZAPHQIEL.

AQ 553 = I ZVEZDA S ZVEZDOIU GOVORIT = CLASS CONFLICT UNDER CAPITALISM = SECRETS OF THE FOUNDING FATHERS.

AQ 2435 = I GO OUT ALONE ON THE ROAD; THROUGH THE MIST SHINES THE ROCKY PATH. THE NIGHT IS QUIET. THE WILDERNESS HEARKENS TO GOD, AND STAR SPEAKS WITH STAR (Mikhail Lermontov) = THE ARCHANGEL OF AIR IS RAPHAEL, THE ANGEL IS CHASSAN, THE RULER IS ARAL, THE KING IS PARALDA, AND THE AIR ELEMENTALS (FOLLOWING PARACELSUS) ARE CALLED SYLPHS = THREE, TWO, ONE, MAIN ENGINE START, ZERO, AND LIFTOFF OF THE ATLAS FIVE WITH CURIOSITY SEEKING CLUES TO THE PLANETARY PUZZLE ABOUT LIFE ON MARS.

AQ 2264 = LONE I WALK UPON THE ROAD; THE STONY PATH GLEAMS THROUGH THE MIST; THE NIGHT IS STILL. WILDERNESS HEEDS GOD, AND STAR SPEAKS WITH STAR (Russian Opera and the Symbolist Movement).

AQ 483 = 21-DEC-1985 WINTER SOLSTICE @ 22:07:392647 UT (Update) = ADVANCED SPACE LAUNCH SYSTEM = BANT - ESPER - GRIXIS - JUND - NAYA (Five Shards of Alara).

right now wanderer lists: GRK-17796, AQ-3115, AQ-3052, AQ-4828 & AQ-4746 — and the "subject" implies "slavery". Stern's survey introduces: AQ-1315 & AQ-4927. at the risk of apples-oranges: "what is the appropriate [moral/ethical] timeframe to forget?" is also a concern of many African-Americans about slavery. GOP presidential candidates currently in Florida (31-Jan primary) discussing space made me think (inspired by The Race Card): The Moon Card, how and when it gets used. will Americans get OMGy thinking about anyone touching our flag? [it's a good question, my stomach flipped a bit (but, is that really a good reason to start a land war in asia?) [+][+]].



AQ 2440 = THE HERON IS THE SYMBOL OF THE ARCHANGEL AVACYN. THE FACT THAT SUCH SPIRITS STILL FLY GIVES THE CHURCH HOPE THAT ITS FOUNDER MAY ONE DAY RETURN (Moon Heron) = THIS BIRD WAS NO SPECTATOR, BUT AN AGENT IN THE STORY; THIS BIRD MIGHT INDEED BELIEVE, AS THE CHILDREN'S POEM HAS IT, THAT HIS CROWING MADE THE SUN RISE.

AQ 4755 = MOON HERON :: MANA COST: 3 BLUE · CONVERTED MANA COST: 4 · CREATURE — SPIRIT BIRD · FLYING · THE HERON IS THE SYMBOL OF THE ARCHANGEL AVACYN. THE FACT THAT SUCH SPIRITS STILL FLY GIVES THE CHURCH HOPE THAT ITS FOUNDER MAY ONE DAY RETURN · P/T: 3/2 · EXPANSION: INNISTRAD (COMMON) · CARD #:69 · ARTIST: CHARLES URBACH = my bad, should be...

AQ 4775 = PRAISE BE TO ALLAH, LORD OF THE WORLDS, THE BENEFICENT, THE MERCIFUL, THE OWNER OF THE DAY OF JUDGMENT. THEE ALONE WE WORSHIP, AND THEE ALONE WE ASK FOR HELP. SHOW US THE STRAIGHT PATH, THE PATH OF THOSE WHOM THOU HAS FAVORED, NOT THE PATH OF THOSE WHO EARN THINE ANGER, NOR OF THOSE WHO GO ASTRAY = IN THE BOURGEOISIE WE HAVE TWO PHASES TO DISTINGUISH: THAT IN WHICH IT CONSTITUTED ITSELF AS A CLASS UNDER THE REGIME OF FEUDALISM AND ABSOLUTE MONARCHY, AND THAT IN WHICH, ALREADY CONSTITUTED AS A CLASS, IT OVERTHREW FEUDALISM AND MONARCHY TO MAKE SOCIETY INTO A BOURGEOIS SOCIETY (The Poverty of Philosophy) = THUS THERE ENDED IN THE ANGEL OF THE APOCALYPSE A CHAIN OF VISIONS THAT BEGAN IN THE WORDS OF ISAIAH. THOSE WHO REMARKED ON THE KEY OF THE HOUSE OF DAVID, AS DID BERNARD DÉLICIEUX, ALSO KNEW THAT THE POWERS TO BE REVEALED BEHIND THE OPEN DOOR BESTOWED THE HIGHEST MEASURE OF SPIRITUAL PERFECTION (p248; The Hammer of the Inquisitors: Brother Bernard Délicieux and the Struggle Against the Inquisition in Fourteenth-Century France).

AQ 4557 = MANA COST: 3 BLUE · CONVERTED MANA COST: 4 · CREATURE — SPIRIT BIRD · FLYING · THE HERON IS THE SYMBOL OF THE ARCHANGEL AVACYN. THE FACT THAT SUCH SPIRITS STILL FLY GIVES THE CHURCH HOPE THAT ITS FOUNDER MAY ONE DAY RETURN · P/T: 3/2 · EXPANSION: INNISTRAD (COMMON) · CARD #:69 · ARTIST: CHARLES URBACH = IT IS IN [PRINÇIPES DE LA NON-PHILOSOPHIE] THAT LARUELLE WORKS OUT THE PRECISE TECHNICAL DETAILS PROPER TO THE METHODOLOGICAL APPARATUS OF NON-PHILOSOPHICAL THEORY AS TRANSCENDENTAL ORGANON FOR THE AXIOMATISATION AND THEOREMATISATION OF PHILOSOPHICAL DECISION (Behold the Non-Rabbit: Kant, Quine, Laruelle • Ray Brassier) = THE DISKS ARE ARRANGED IN THE FORM OF THE HEXAGRAM, WHICH IS SHOWN IN SKELETON. IN THE CENTRE BLUSHES AND GLOWS THE LIGHT ROSE-MADDER OF DAWN, AND WITHOUT ARE THREE CONCENTRIC CIRCLES, GOLDEN YELLOW, SALMON-PINK, AND AMBER. THESE COLOURS SHOW TIPHARETH FULLY REALIZED ON EARTH (Six of Disks).


The Secret Document That Transformed China

We all secretly competed.


One giant leap of imagination
(i think TNC & Booker echo some of this)

"We live in a society where there is no law in making money in the promulgation of ignorance or, in some cases, stupidity," [Tom] Hanks said. "There are a lot of things you can say never happened. You can go as relatively quasi-harmless as saying no one went to the moon. But you also can say that the Holocaust never happened."

A spokesman for the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington says there will always be those who will not be convinced. But the museum does not engage them in debate.

The spokesman acknowledges, however, that if a major news channel was doing a program that questioned the authenticity of the Holocaust, "I'd certainly want to inject myself into the debate with them in a very forceful way."

Television's Fox Network was the moon-hoax purveyor. In February 2001 and again a month later, Fox broadcast an hourlong program titled "Conspiracy Theory: Did We Land on the Moon?"

Roger Launius [Conspiracy Theories in Aerospace History: A Lesson in Critical Thinking for the Internet Age], who agreed to Oberg's book just before leaving NASA's history office, says the story about the moon hoax has been around a long time. But the Fox show "raised it to a new level, it gave it legs and credibility that it didn't have before."

AQ 1459 = MERELY TO CONCEIVE OF SUCH MEN WAS THE SUREST WAY TO KNOW THE EVENT WAS NOT STAGED (Of a Fire on the Moon, Norman Mailer, 1969 • Pall Over Apollo (Lessons of the ‘Moon Hoax’ Myth)) = ASH NAZG DURBATULÛK, ASH NAZG GIMBATUL, ASH NAZG THRAKATULÛK AGH BURZUM-ISHI KRIMPATUL (One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the Darkness bind them).


Why the United States Will Never, Ever Build the iPhone outlines four basic lessons from Apple's manufacturing [Apple, America and a Squeezed Middle Class: How the U.S. Lost Out on iPhone Work, first part of NYT's iEconomy series; 2nd part In China, Human Costs Are Built Into an iPad · NTY's partnered with Caixin to publish the article in Chinese] • note comments on the supply chain:


Anyone who has paid attention to the withering of our manufacturing base over the last 40 years should know the facts of the article. They are self evident. Unfortunately, too many look at any manufacturing sector as a world unto itself and do not realize the long coat tails it creates; the supply chain. As demand for the products of the supply chain withers, so does innovation in that dying supply chain.
- - -
One of the problems America faces is the fact that people, often so-called "experts", tend to blame one or two factors rather than the 100 or 1000 factors that led to the problem. You'll see this all the time in the press. An article will cite "Joe Shmo", an economist at some college and "expert" on the auto industry (who has never had one thing to do with making cars) say the the problem was created by "X". An opposing opinion from another "expert" on the auto industry, who's also never had one thing to do with making cars, says the problem was created by "Y".The actual answer is usually that the problem was created by A, B, C, through ZZZ.

"A man grows rich by employing a multitude of manufacturers; he grows poor by maintaining a multitude of menial servants." Adam Smith, The Wealth of Nations

AQ 2556 = AN OPTIMIST SAYS THE GLASS IS HALF FULL, A PESSIMIST SAYS THE GLASS IS HALF EMPTY. A PROCESS ENGINEER SAYS "YOUR GLASS IS TWICE AS LARGE AS IT SHOULD BE" (What is process engineering?) = WHICH BRINGS US AT LAST TO THE MOMENT OF TRUTH, WHEREIN THE FUNDAMENTAL FLAW IS ULTIMATELY EXPRESSED, AND THE ANOMALY REVEALED AS BOTH BEGINNING… AND END (The Matrix Reloaded • The Architect).

commentor mentions process engineering in article about Solyndra factory sale [Two Bidders for the Solyndra Factory? Huh?, based on Solyndra may have 2 bidders]. other comments include: actual price of panels; SOLYNDRA-GATE!; Barry Hussein Obama!; turning factory into "Museum of Hubris"; spaceship Solyndra's factory vs. Chinese spartan workshops; China's pyrrhic victory manufacturing crystalline silicon panels; American taxpayer may be in there somewhere too. Wendman's first comment is extremely technical: CIGS, CdTe, CZTS, TCO, ITO, CTO, but also criticizes complete loss of the plant and inability to salvage jobs & processes (also, was bridge loan fair? could it be rewritten?) — "You could never engineer you[r] way out of any problem" — "Real process engineering is not about complacency, real process engineering is can do, and will do" — "Karma matters".

the issue: "dumping of state subsidized PV panels from Asia in the past 2 years" — google PV dumping: President Obama comments on SolarWorld petition & Photovoltaics » Current_developments. Obama also mentioned bringing "trade cases against China at nearly twice the rate as the last administration" during 2012 SOTU. Wendman argues "Solyndra fell upon hard times of unbelievable PV price collapse" & had "more faith that Solyndra’s challenges could still be solved cost effectively".

Wendman also mentions 2010 editorial [How America Can Create Jobs] by former Intel CEO Andy Grove (Grove "has the truth correct re dumping and what needs done to revive employment and economy HERE"). Grove also worth reading to compare/contrast NYT's iEconomy series (also check: Andy Grove From Intel Is Wrong, re: Levy an extra tax on the product of offshored labor), recap (because this falls under deceptive bow considerations & Businesses that scaled back supply chain during recession may be caught off guard & GAO/Augustine analysis of Constellation program):


"Friedman is wrong. Startups… cannot by themselves increase tech employment". after a startup, it's about how "technology goes from prototype to mass production. This is the phase where companies scale up… The scaling process is no longer happening in the U.S.… plowing capital into young companies that build their factories elsewhere will continue to yield a bad return in terms of American jobs". briefly describes Silicon Valley buildup.

The 10X Factor: "manufacturing employment in the U.S. computer industry is about 166,000… Asia, employing about 1.5 million… Hon Hai Precision Industry, also known as Foxconn… employs over 800,000 people, more than the combined worldwide head count of Apple, Dell, Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard, Intel, and Sony. Until a recent spate of suicides at Foxconn's giant factory complex in Shenzhen, China, few Americans had heard of the company… for every Apple worker in the U.S. there are 10 people in China working… roughly 10-to-1 relationship holds for… other U.S. tech companies". "Simply put, the U.S. has become wildly inefficient at creating American tech jobs… The job machine breakdown isn't just in computers… Photovoltaics, for example, are a U.S. invention. Their use in home energy applications was also pioneered by the U.S… [but most of the panels come from China]". "A new industry needs an effective ecosystem in which technology knowhow accumulates, experience builds on experience, and close relationships develop between supplier and customer."

The Key to Job Creation: [it's worth reading the article just for this section, Grove describes authorizing billions to build Pentium chip plants - the gamble paid off] "My point isn't that Intel was brilliant. The company was founded at a time when it was easier to scale domestically. For one thing, China wasn't yet open for business. More importantly, the U.S. had not yet forgotten that scaling was crucial to its economic future… How could the U.S. have forgotten? I believe the answer has to do with a general undervaluing of manufacturing—the idea that as long as "knowledge work" stays in the U.S., it doesn't matter what happens to factory jobs… we broke the chain of experience that is so important in technological evolution [earlier, Grove said US stopped making batteries for electronics, so US unprepared to make jump to advanced batteries for computer and automobile markets] → essentially, keeping knowledge base here isn't enough because losing manufacturing base "lock[s] you out of tomorrow's emerging industry".

Wanted: Job-Centric Economics: "Our fundamental economic beliefs, which we have elevated from a conviction based on observation to an unquestioned truism, is that the free market is the best of all economic systems—the freer the better… So we stick with this belief, largely oblivious to emerging evidence that while free markets beat planned economies, there may be room for a modification that is even better. Such evidence stares at us from the performance of several Asian countries in the past few decades. These countries seem to understand that job creation must be the No. 1 objective of state economic policy [see Developmental state]. The government plays a strategic role in setting the priorities and arraying the forces and organization necessary to achieve this goal. The rapid development of the Asian economies provides numerous illustrations. In a thorough study of the industrial development of East Asia [Governing the Market: Economic Theory and the Role of Government in East Asian Industrialization], Robert Wade of the London School of Economics found that these economies turned in precedent-shattering economic performances over the '70s and '80s in large part because of the effective involvement of the government in targeting the growth of manufacturing industries." [Grove describes China's information infrastructure buildup; story of the guillotine, the rusty nail & the oil can].

"Silicon Valley is a community with a strong tradition of engineering, and engineers are a peculiar breed. They are eager to solve whatever problems they encounter. If profit margins are the problem, we go to work on margins, with exquisite focus. Each company, ruggedly individualistic, does its best to expand efficiently and improve its own profitability. However, our pursuit of our individual businesses, which often involves transferring manufacturing and a great deal of engineering out of the country, has hindered our ability to bring innovations to scale at home. Without scaling, we don't just lose jobs—we lose our hold on new technologies. Losing the ability to scale will ultimately damage our capacity to innovate." [this reminds me of: (a) soldiers training together not being deployed together; (b) separating families during slavery; and (c) ending shuttle program]

If it should be impossible to get satisfactory results at least make clear to yourself the nature of the hindrances".


Addresses to Engineering Students
The Human Side of the Engineering Profession
(An Outline)
Professor Vladimir Karapetoff

Fundamental Thought:

Professional usefulness and personal satisfaction depend on the right conception of life and on the degree in which this conception of life is manifested in daily activity.

PART I — WORK AND CONDUCT

There are three essential requisites for an efficient and successful engineer:

A. Sound professional knowledge;
B. Knowledge of business forms and of human relations;
C. Good and strong character.
- - -
Work with the understanding that your activity of to-day shapes your future. You need not trust to chance; your opportunity will come when you are ready for it.

 

AQ 2918 = PROFESSIONAL USEFULNESS AND PERSONAL SATISFACTION DEPEND ON THE RIGHT CONCEPTION OF LIFE AND ON THE DEGREE IN WHICH THIS CONCEPTION OF LIFE IS MANIFESTED IN DAILY ACTIVITY = THIS WOULD HELP BANKS TO CONTINUE THEIR LENDING ACTIVITIES IN 2012 AND TO AVOID A SPIRAL OF FORCED DELEVERAGING AND THE ENSUING CREDIT CRUNCHES, WHICH WOULD AFFECT THE REAL ECONOMY (EU summit: live coverage of debt crisis talks).

AQ 3033 = WORK PATIENTLY ON ANY PROBLEM UNTIL A RESULT IS ACHIEVED. IF IT SHOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE TO GET SATISFACTORY RESULTS AT LEAST MAKE CLEAR TO YOURSELF THE NATURE OF THE HINDRANCES = A. THE NEED TO ENSURE THE MEDIUM-TERM FUNDING OF BANKS, IN ORDER TO AVOID A CREDIT CRUNCH AND TO SAFEGUARD THE FLOW OF CREDIT TO THE REAL ECONOMY, AND TO COORDINATE MEASURES TO ACHIEVE THIS (Annex 2 :: Euro Summit Statement • Brussels, 26 October 2011) = CONSEQUENTLY, THE TWO ROOTS (DBR AND AMR) ARE USUALLY FOUND TOGETHER IN TORAH, IN A PASUK (VERSE) STRUCTURED LIKE: "ELOKIM DIBUR (SPOKE) TO MOSHE, VAYOAMAR (SAYING), I AM HASHEM" (SHEMOT 6:2) (Light of Mashiach).

AQ 1610 = REAL PROCESS ENGINEERING IS NOT ABOUT COMPLACENCY, REAL PROCESS ENGINEERING IS CAN DO, AND WILL DO = A SAVANT IS REVEALED, A MAN WHO HAS CREATED NEW FORMS FOR OLD SYMBOLS THAT HAVE LOST THEIR MEANING (Aries 10°) = FACESTI COME QUEI CHE VA DI NOTTE, CHE PORTA IL LUME DIETRO E SÉ NON GIOVA, MA DOPO SÉ FA LE PERSONE DOTTE (Thou didst as one who passing through the night bears a light behind, that profits not himself but makes those who follow wise) = REGAINING MORAL RESPONSIBILITY: HABERMAS AND HAVEL ON LIFEWORLD, SYSTEM, AND DISCOURSE ETHICS (Public Responsibility, Solidarity, and Citizenship) = THE GENERAL THEORY… A UNIQUE ACHIEVEMENT THAT WOULD NOT HAVE FOUND AN ALTERNATIVE DISCOVERER = THE SPIRITUAL SITE FOR THE RENDING OF SHEMA IS DESCRIBED IN KABBALAH AS THE SUPERNAL "CHAMBER OF LOVE" = THEREFORE THE FINAL EQUATION IS: LAMBDAT = 0.28979. THIS EQUATION IS KNOWN AS THE WIEN DISPLACEMENT LAW.

AQ 673 = ENGINEER YOUR WAY OUT OF ANY PROBLEM = HOW DO WE KNOW WHEN WE HAVE ACHIEVED SCALE? = PERDURABO: THE LIFE OF ALEISTER CROWLEY = SEND A DELIBERATE ECHO INTO THE NEXT LOOP = THAN ARE DREAMT OF IN YOUR PHILOSOPHY = WELL, WE'RE ALWAYS POSITIVE THINKERS (NASA Administrator Charles Bolden prior to Mars Curiosity launch, 26-Nov-2011, CNN TJ Holmes).
