Nuclear Power and Our Future


Gemany nuclear Power Decision in Energy Policy

My take on this:

‘It appear that Germany‘s government learned 100% more from the Fukushima nuclear meltdown, that Japan‘s: An example of learning from others’ experiences, and acting without prejudice, enlightened, selflessly – that”s Germany of course. It goes on to show that some cannot give up their ways, no matter how destructive, even to themselves. It also shows the power of the citizen in making decisions, where decision making cannot be accomplished. I guess it helps to keep politicians accountable.
It is true that plans are just plans, that may never materialize, but al least the intension to commit to reason, to change, to search for a better, superior, civilized way, are their, for history.©’

Boys That Bully More Likely to Beat Partners Later

US researchers say new findings show a link between schoolyard bullying and later domestic abuse, highlighting the importance of addressing bullying behavior in childhood. Thirty eight percent of the men in a recent study who admitted to abusing their partner physically or sexually within the past year also said they had frequently bullied their peers in school. The association was even stronger than for other risk factors linked with domestic violence, such as having suffered abuse as a child. More… Discuss

Quotation of the day: Mark Twain (1835-1910)

Good breeding consists in concealing how much we think of ourselves and how little we think of the other person.
                                                    Mark Twain (1835-1910) Discuss
This is what I think about this:

‘Listening to others is an effective way of learning more about their  problems. That will make one think about their own problem, in comparison: Now we have an internal dialogue, that externalize and brings about core feelings that we all have in out make, such as true interest, compassion, motivation to help.  So what may start as ‘good breeding’ may end up being a very healthy way to value your own true needs, and wants, when balanced against of those of others.
Of course it all is , like everything else relative, in an ever dynamically relative perception of the evolving reality.’ ©
