… 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. …

Taiwan researchers turn waste cooking oil into biodiesel

Using microwaves with strontium oxide as a catalyst, researchers at National Cheng Kung University in southern Taiwan have developed a way to turn waste cooking oil into biodiesel, a method they say they will share with local businesses for mass production of biodiesel within a year.

The university's professor Liao Jiunn-der and visiting professor Aharon Gedanken of Israel announced their findings on Thursday from the university in Tainan.

With the catalyst, kitchen waste can be turned into biodiesel and glycerol in a modified microwave oven in the space of 10-40 seconds, they said. The strontium oxide can then be reused, making the production method highly efficient, according to Liao.

The process can turn waste into a resource that contributes to the environment and economy, especially in Taiwan, where cooking and eating habits mean local restaurants, homes and schools produce a considerable amount of waste oil, noted Gedanken.

Liao hopes that the new method will help Taiwan, where diesel fuel currently consists of 2%-3% biodiesel, to meet the predictions of the European Union, which forecast that biodiesel will make up 20% of diesel by the year 2020.

The university is working on filing a patent for the technique, he said.

The modified microwave developed by Gedanken is able to handle an estimated 500 kilograms of waste oil per day, according to Liao.

The results proved that the transesterification of waste cooking oil into biodiesel using strontium oxide as a catalyst is a commercially viable way of decreasing the costs of biodiesel production, he added.
