… 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. …

Digital cartographer Tele Atlas plans to bring its mobile mapping vans to Asia

The Jakarta Post

SEOUL (AP): Tele Atlas NV said Thursday its trademark orange mobile mapping vans will be hitting the streets of Asia this year to collect data for the fast-growing digital cartography industry.

"Our plan is to rapidly start to deploy these into the major - say the top 10 to 20 - cities in the Asia-Pacific region where we have coverage," said Mark Steele, Tele Atlas' chief operating officer for the Asia-Pacific.

Tele Atlas operates in nine countries and territories in Asia including China, Indonesia, Australia and Thailand. That number will expand to 13 by the end of this year and will include India,Steele said.

Steele, speaking to reporters on the occasion of Tele Atlas' launching of its South Korea office, said he expected the vehicles to begin collecting data in Asia in June.

The 's-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands-based company plans to target Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Taipei, Taiwan with the vehicles this year, Steele said.

The bright orange sport utility vehicles carrying the company's distinct logo - a boy on the back of a flying goose - are stuffed with high-tech digital mapping equipment and are a key tool in its quest to digitally map the world.

The logo is based on the Swedish children's book The Wonderful Adventures of Nils about a boy who gains a unique visual understanding of the world from his vantage point atop a flying goose.

The vans are equipped with six high resolution cameras, Global Positioning System, or GPS, receivers, laser scanners and onboard computers. They collect road network and lane information, imagesof street signs, store fronts and building heights "all without blinking," Steele said.

The information is processed at production facilities in India and Poland. The vans gather data for standard two-dimensional maps for car navigation systems and handheld devices, augmenting traditional methods such as networks of people in cars and on motorcycles.

The vehicles, already operational in Europe and North America, also collect information for three-dimensional maps, in which topographical features such as buildings are included to aid navigation.
