… 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. …

Airbus A320s sport 'created and made in China' wings

The Airbus and Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) and the Xi'an Aircraft Industry Factory have achieved domestic production of Airbus aircraft wings for the A320 series at their jointly operated Tianjin factory, reports the Shanghai-based China Business News.

The Harbin Hafei Airbus Composite Manufacturing Centre, run by Airbus and its Chinese partners, is also fully functional and producing key parts needed for Airbus A350XWB aircraft.

So far, Airbus Tianjin has assembled a total of 216 A320s, most of which are for the mainland China market. Airbus Tianjin plans to assemble 49 aircraft in 2015, said one unnamed Airbus executive.

Airbus began cooperating with Xi'an Aircraft as early as 1999, with the latter as a contract manufacturer for aircraft wings. Now collaboration has extended to include the assembly, testing and delivery of whole wings, said the report.

The A320 wing project is one of the most advanced technologies Airbus has brought to work with the Chinese aviation industry, as the design and construction of a wing is the most technical section of the aircraft. Success in commercial airplane wing manufacturing has significantly boosted the overall capability of China's aviation industry.

The cooperation entered the fourth stage in 2009, with Xi'an Aircraft delivering the first whole A320 aircraft wing to Airbus in February 2010.

Airbus Tianjin, which is a joint venture between Airbus, AVIC and a Chinese consortium in the Tianjin Free Trade Zone (TJFTZ), has been praised as a model for cooperation between China and Europe.

In June 2009, Airbus Tianjin delivered its first assembled A320 aircraft to Sichuan Airlines. Since then, Airbus Tianjin delivered 11 aircraft in 2009, 26 in 2010, 36 in 2011, 37 in 2012, 46 in 2013 and 47 in 2014 to more than 10 local and foreign airline companies.

In April 2014, Airbus and its Chinese partners signed an agreement to push for further cooperation in the assembly of the A320 Neo series, and raise total assembly capacity. The Airbus A350XWB project will show not only "made in China," but also progress towards "created in China," said the Airbus executive.

Airbus forecasts that for China to become the world's largest civil aviation market within the next 10 years, it will need more than 5,300 newly added passenger and cargo aircraft, accounting for 17% of the world's total.
