… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Smog means pilots flying to Beijing need blind landing rating

From the first day of the new year, pilots flying domestically to Beijing from China's top 10 municipal airports must be capable of performing a second-category blind landing. The requirement comes as the smog thickens around the capital, according to a decree issued by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC).

Spring Airlines, China's leading budget carrier, reported on Dec. 10 that 80% of its pilots are now proficient in such a landing, or landing via instrumental assistance at a time when visibility is poor.

Half of the pilots of China Eastern Airlines are capable of second-category blind landing, while the great majority of pilots for Juneyao Airlines have completed training. Most pilots flying large long-haul aircraft, such as A330 and B767, were originally required to possess the skills for a blind landing, though their is no national requirement to obtain a domestic flying license.

Pilots without the requisite skills are currently being asked to land at a standby airport during bad weather, which filters out a great amount of domestic carriers when compared to international flights.

Growing numbers of local pilots come with such capabilities, thanks to the provision of cram courses by domestic airlines. The punctuality of domestic flights has increased markedly, mainly by reducing the influence of smoggy weather.

With the exception of Shanghai Pudong Airport, Beijing Capital Airport and Guangzhou Baiyun Airport, most domestic airports are not equipped with blind-landing assistance facilities, which are quite expensive.

The CAAC, however, has planned to require eight airports with an annual passenger traffic exceeding 20 million passenger/trips and 18 airports with passenger traffic of 5-20 million to install second-category or third category-blind landing facilities.
