… 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. …

VP says Terminal 3 of Soekarno-Hatta Airport ready this year

Jakarta, (ANTARA News) - Vice President Jusuf Kalla has expressed optimism that the construction of Soekarno-Hatta International Airport`s terminal-3 would be completed at the end of this year.

"I have just inspected the construction site of terminal-3 and I find that it will be completed at the end of this year," the vice president said after the inspection at Soekarno-Hatta Airport on Saturday.

Meanwhile, project manager Yudhi Listiono said the completion of terminal-3 has reached 38 percent from the original target of 37 percent.

Yudhi also explained to the vice president that the construction of the terminal was divided into five phases and would be completed in two years.

"But the first phase will be ready at the end of this year," Kalla said.

The vice president explained that when the first phase of terminal-3 was ready, it would be able to accommodate 4 million people, but when all five phases were ready they would accommodate 20 million people.

"So far, terminal-1 and terminal-2 only accommodate around 20 million, but every year they accommodate more than 34 million passengers," Kalla said.

Therefore, he asserted that the construction of terminal-3 should be accelerated to anticipate the increasing economic growth.

Navy orders three aircraft form PT Dirgantara Indonesia

The Jakarta Post

Antara, Surabaya |Thu, 07/03/2008 4:33 PM

The Indonesian Navy has ordered two maritime patrol aircraft and one CN 212-400 plane from the country's aircraft industry PT Dirgantara Indonesia (DI).

"The number of naval aircraft we have is still small and therefore we will continue to increase it," Navy chief of staff Admiral Sumardjono said here on Thursday.

He said he would continue to improve the naval armament system including aircraft and warships through transfer-of-technology deals with other countries.

"The oldest aircraft we have at present were made in the 1980s but we will continue to rejuvenate our fleet," Sumardjono said, adding that only airworthy planes would be operated.

Meanwhile, the head of the Navy's Aviation Center, Admiral Sumartono, said the Navy now had a total of 68 airplanes of various types but only 48 of them were serviceable.

Indonesia grounds small airlines to meet safety standards

Wed Jul 2, 2008 7:37am BST 

JAKARTA, July 2 (Reuters) - Indonesia's transport ministry grounded five small airlines this week because they did not meet safety standards, a ministry official said on Wednesday.

The transport ministry gave Helizona, SMAC, Asco Nusa Air, Tri-MG Intra Asia Airlines and Dirgantara Air Service three months to meet minimum safety standards, Budi Mulyawan Suyitno, director general of air transportation, said. "Those airlines, with small planes for rent, didn't meet safety standards," Suyitno said. "If within three months they don't show any improvement we will revoke their air operator's certificate."

Suyitno said this move was part of an on-going process to improve the the safety standards of Indonesian airlines.

In March, Indonesian budget carrier Adam Air, which has suffered a series of accidents and defaulted on debt payments, had its flights grounded over safety concerns.

Indonesia's airline industry has grown rapidly in the past decade following liberalisation, with the launch of new players and a wider choice of routes across the sprawling archipelago.

However, the world's fourth-most populous country has suffered a string of airline disasters in recent years, raising concerns about safety standards and prompting the European Union to ban all Indonesian airlines from its airspace.

In January 2007, an Adam Air plane crashed into the sea off Sulawesi island, with all 102 people on board presumed dead. In March 2007 a Garuda plane carrying 140 people on board skidded off the Yogyakarta runway, killing 21 people.
