… 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. …

Google to buy satellite company Skybox Imaging

Google is to buy Skybox Imaging, a California-based satellite company. Google’s online maps will benefit the most from the purchase, which could also facilitate Internet access in remote locations.

Deutsche Welle, 10 June 2014

The world's top search engine announced on Tuesday plans to purchase Skybox Imaging, a five-year-old satellite company situated right up the road from the Internet giant. The deal was reportedly worth $500 million (369 million euros).

"We've agreed to acquire Skybox Imaging, and we look forward to welcoming them to Google," a statement from the Internet giant said.

"Their satellites will help keep our maps accurate with up-to-date imagery. Over time, we also hope that Skybox's team and technology will be able to help improve Internet access and disaster relief - areas Google has long been interested in," it added.

Skybox, for its part, expressed its enthusiasm over the scheduled acquisition on its website on Tuesday.

"Skybox and Google…believe in making information (especially accurate geospatial information) accessible and useful," the satellite company said, adding that it looked forward to the partnership which might include building more satellites.

"The time is right to join a company who can challenge us to think even bigger and bolder, and who can support us in accelerating our ambitious vision," it added.

Google in orbit

Skybox's satellite already in orbit will reportedly supplement Google's images of the earth distributed through its popular map function "Google Maps." The Internet giant currently relies on other companies, including DigitalGlobe and Astrium, for its geospatial information.

In the future, Google might also use satellites to provide better Internet access across the globe.

The deal, whose date has not yet been released, is pending approval from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Federal Communications Commission.

The announcement on Tuesday comes less than two months of Google bought drone manufacturer Titan Aerospace. The Internet giant is also in the process of developing Project Loon, which aims to transmit the Internet to remote locations via large, high-altitude balloons.

and also I read here that they are investing more than $1bn to place more than hundred satellites in orbit to widen internet access .... and I am happy for google to acquire Skybox imaging which launched the world's smallest high-resolution imaging satellite that collects images and video every day ....
