    [QUOTE=coalition;1118181][IMG]http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/02280/meet_2280373k.jpg[/IMG]
    Our newly appointed Modern Major General buffoon visits the scene of his last crime....when he lied to Soldiers about getting their operational allowences...all they got was the dump on the dole and survival of the ftttist..as they say in the US he had their 'Pink Slips' in his back pocket as he lied to our troops.

    Now, this congenitial liar is poking fun at our Monarch, is he as Mad as Thatcher who thought she was The Monarch?
    The Prime Minister has paid tribute to the “brave and professional” British troops serving in Afghanistan.

    In the run up to the 2014 Parliamentary elections in India, Mr. Narendra Modi was able to convince about his ability to provide governance that takes care of the common man as well as the economic development of the nation. Unlike the predominantly negative approach of Aam Aadmi Party in pointing out finger at the corrupt and the unconvincing promises of the Congress led UPA having been in power for 10 years, the positive approach of Mr. Modi paid off handsomely with the BJP led NDA coming to power. The President's address to the Parliament after the new Govt. came to power spelt out plans for economic revival and the pro-poor policies to be implemented by Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi's government. The running theme of the speech was the fight to eradicate poverty and improve the condition ...

  23. Real Growth as against Apparent Growth

    If there is one statistic that influences most the policies of a government and by extension the collective policy of the world at large, then it is the growth of the nation; by usage this implies the GDP growth of the nation. Growth has become synonymous with the health of the nations economy. A poor growth rate seems to imply poor prognosis for the health of the nation itself.

    The present Indian government led by the economist PM bets on sustained high growth rate as the panacea for all the problems afflicting the nation. When the growth rate is falling the credit rating given by international agencies goes down and the government goes all out to improve the growth rate by spurring economic activity through various means. Growth rate has become the key determinant ...

In relation to the need to harness human nature by making probity an asset in our electoral processes he was discussing the question, Where does human nature come from?

    He rightly stated that "we must understand our nature before we can develop institutions that capitalize on our strengths and control our weaknesses". He went on to surmise the evolution of human nature on lines of the dominant thinking of our times, which is the Darwinian theory of 'survival of the fittest'. He classifies personalities into stronger and weaker people and goes on to say that the will ...
  25. The Myth of Economic Growth (GDP Growth)

    Recently there was the news that the economic growth in India has slowed down to the lowest figure in past 9 years. The GDP had fallen to 5.3% in the last quarter of previous financial year for which data is available. This was thought to be of great concern and sent alarm bells ringing. The Deputy Chairman of Planning Commission in India characterized this as the "Anna" rate of growth, blaming the anti-corruption movement led by Anna Hazare for the poor performance of the economy.

    The concept of economic growth, in terms of GDP, is itself questionable. In India, the policy makers blindly follow the western model of development based on GDP growth. However many western thinkers themselves have discarded this model. It has only brought unhappiness to the society as ...

  26. Recap and Bibliography

    So to sum up:

    It is possible, and even probable, that climate change will bring an end to human civilization by the end of this century.

    Four important reasons for this assertion are:

    (1) Because a stable climate is key to all human systems, significant changes in climate will disrupt multiple human systems all at once, or in rapid succession, overwhelming our ability to respond.

    (2) We can't wait until it gets bad before responding, because amplifying loops ("tipping points") may kick in, starting processes that we cannot stop.

    (3) To all the natural amplifying factors, Man himself must be added, as potentially the most dangerous and unpredictable factor of all.

    (4) All this augurs ill for attaining the ...

  27. The Climate Change Threat in a Small Nutshell (4)

    So how do we prevent climate Armageddon?

    Work is already being done in piecemeal fashion on improving efficiency in transportation and industry, on developing sustainable energy sources, on renovating buildings to improve energy efficiency, etc. R&D is also being done on things like capturing and storing (sequestering) CO2.

    Unfortunately, this is a problem that requires cooperation among nations, for the simple and obvious reason that the threat really is global, and cutbacks in energy use by some may not be politically feasible if others do not follow suit.

    There are the following factors which immensely complicate the possibility for international cooperation:

  28. The Climate Change Threat in a Small Nutshell (3)

    There is one feedback loop that is both more threatening than all the rest, and is in fact the least well understood, the most unpredictable of all.

    That feedback loop is (strictly speaking, runs through) Man himself.

    It might actually be more nearly correct to speak of many various human-based feedback loops. But let's look at a few examples, starting with minor issues.

    1) As summertime temperatures rise, and temp records are broken, people will crank up their air conditioners in Texas, Italy, India, etc. More coal will be burned to provide electric power for this.

    2) As crop failures occur, farmers will redouble applications of fertilizer or otherwise try to use fuel to raise yields.
