WAVE ENERGY ELECTRICAL GENERATION IS A REALITY

WAVE ENERGY CONVERTERS ARE IN USE NOW, AND MORE ARE BEING BUILT.  HERE IS THE LATEST:


Image from renewable energy focus .com article by George Marsh dated 14 Feb.2014
Please go to the linked article for a more detailed explanation of how Wave energy converts work.


    Anyone who has ever stood on a beach and listened to the waves lapping the shore is intuitively aware that ocean waves carry considerable kinetic energy. We've long known that about falling water; and the water wheel driven grist mill has been in operation for centuries. More recent is the water driven turbine. However, a mechanism to harness the in and out varying tempo of the moving water of an ocean wave just wasn't as intuitive as the water wheel and the turbine. By the time we seriously turned our attention to the challenge, the piston driven internal combustion engine, converting an up and down motion via a crank shaft to a rotary motion  generating drive to wheels, had been around for more than a century. None the less despite the less than cutting edge image of the piston the idea of harnessing the kinetic energy of the ocean's waves seems pretty Buck Rogers to a lot of us who haven't been following developments in this field regularly. Our purpose in this post however is not to explain the how of the technology but simply to report on the latest application that we recently came across in the pages of WORKBOAT Magazine. We found an explanation of the how it's done part in an article by George Marsh in Renewable Energy Focus .com 

 WORKBOAT  which we always link you to in our news section reported in their March 2018 issue that the Portland Oregon ship yard VIGOR is building a 125' by 59' wave energy converter buoy for Ocean Energy Group and its subsidiary Ocean Energy USA. This latest wave energy converter will be sent to the U.S. Navy's Wave Energy Test Site ("WETS" in "NAVSPEAK") on the windward, and hence wavy side of Oahu. This is a first of its kind for the Navy WETS and is partly funded by the DOE to the total tune (for the whole experiment not just the energy converter buoy) of about $12 million. A little more than half that figure went into just the wave energy converter buoy. Also participating in the project is Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland ("SEAI" in "NAVSPEAK").
Our research reveals that while this is the latest application of the Wave Energy Converter, it is far from the first. We now know how to build these things . It probably happened while we were napping.

THE DRAGON AND THE UNIVERSITIES

AND OTHER SCHOOL HOUSES:

HOW THE DRAGON IS WEAPONIZING EDUCATION INCLUDING HERE IN THE UNITED STATES: 



In our post THE DRAGON AND THE SCHOOL HOUSE  we described how China (The Dragon) was building a school in the disputed Islands of the South China Sea in order to make a claim of "effective settlement" since they lost their bid at a legal claim under "effective administration" failing to even defend themselves in the World Court when the Philippines filed suite against them. The Dragon is basically a Confucian state and wields both soft and hard power. It views itself as the "Middle Kingdom", and there is nothing middling in their meaning. To the Confucian state China is the center of the Earth and draws all peoples to her supposedly enlightened self. To those inclined to say no thanks, especially strong nations able to defend themselves militarily the dragon seeks to undermine the resistance with "soft power". Soft power can be economic or intellectual and any combination of both. In our previous post on the building of a lower school on one of the disputed islands in the South China Sea we see the Dragon expending great economic resources on a totally economically unjustified civil construction. The Dragon  virtually raised an island out of a shallows in the sea, establishing a population upon it that can never be economically sufficient, and building a school where none is needed, but at great expense they will people it with little students and photo opportunities, all to make a better eventual court case in international law for "effective settlement", the number one preferred argument before the World Court for a declaration of soverignity over previously uninhabited areas. Such a declaration could result in a radical redrawing of the oceanic exclusive economic zones in the South China Sea and move the Dragon closer to international recognition of its claim of the South China sea as a virtual Chinese lake.

 Today we examine another similar use of such "soft power" involving education in the United States.
The Chinese are starting to buy universities in the United States, some with old names and establish Chinese 'study centers" on others. All of this activity has but one purpose to indoctrinate college age young adults with a favorable view of China and blind them to the threat of the Dragon. In a recent example a few weeks ago Beijing Education Technology Company paid $40 million for Westminster Choir College, an affiliate of Rider University. The school is basically a music college that prepares performers and teachers. You can bet every effort will be made to assure graduates enter the work world with a very favorable view of China. As Beijing Education Technology is closing deals on US post secondary schools, so is China's Weiming Education Group, a Chinese company that recently bought a 58 acre campus from West Hardford University for $12.6 million with the intention of turning it into an international school. Weiming, the largest provider of private schools in China will soon be able to preach the virtues of the Dragon to an international body of students who are not from China where such propaganda might be expected, but from an American campus no doubt staffed by a largely American faculty. We are just touching the tip of the iceberg of Dragon interests in American Education. More and more Chinese students are pouring into America for higher education, the Dragon intends to secure the loyalty of her pups in every way possible by making approval of the Dragon appear to be an American cultural norm. In addition to buying into university ownership and funding cultural studies and study centers , the Dragon is investing in student housing and increasing its foot print in small college town America. All of this of course virtually unnoticed by the main stream media. It won't be easy America, with the government oblivious and the main stream media in favor, but you let the dragon near your school house at risk to the future. A school house is just an instrument of "soft power "to the Dragon who weaponizes everything.

THE DRAGON IS HACKING US MARITIME FIRMS TO GAIN DATA FOR NAVAL USE


HOW FAR WILL THE DRAGON SWIM FOR TACTICAL DATA? 

Public Domain

 The STRAITS TIMES reports that the Dragon in the form of Chinese cyber forces have started to hack U.S. maritime companies and their clients in an attempt to obliquely obtain data on US naval capabilities in the South China Sea or U.S. capabilities that might be deployed there in the near future there .  According to the linked article the Dragon hackers are cyber attacking mainly U.S. engineering and defense firms that they have linked to U.S. naval or their commercial client's operations in the South China sea.

 The Dragon's hackers are after strategically useful data and some tactical data as well. The type of data sought such as radar ranges and the operational parameters of certain ship board sensors are of a type more likely to be sought out by naval intelligence operatives than industrial spies. Could this be an indication that the Dragon intends to stand its ground to the end in its great land grab of the Exclusive Economic Zones of its neighbors in the South China Sea?

NAVAL ON LINE WAR GAMING

File:BattleOfVirginiaCapes.jpg
Second Battle of the Virginia Capes by V. Zveg  for the US Navy US Navy Naval History and Heritage Command: Photo #: NH 73927-KN

 Ever play "Battleship" when you were a kid? For our younger readers it was a  game done with grids overlaying silhouettes of war ships in which you call out your "shots" by grid coordinates against your opponents ships that you of course can't see. We're really dating our selves here if you are under 50 or so it is highly unlikely that you have ever played "Battleship" with such primitive gaming materials.  Today, "Battleship" is done on line, often for free with amazing audio visuals, historical accuracy and against sometimes multiple players. There are battles based on long past battles such as the Second Battle Of the Virginia Capes depicted above and imaginary battles based on modern naval combatants such as the USS ABRAHAM LINCOLN BATTLE  GROUP depicted below:

For nearly five years now we have been bringing you book reviews and links to books, and videos on naval subjects. As naval professionals we have personally engaged in naval "table top exercises", and even in computerized simulations. Games can be an important training tool for the professional as well as learning tools for naval history, and just plain fun for the enthusiasts. Unfortunately the"old salts' round about the office are hardly millennials and frankly we didn't think much about computer games until recently when we stumbled across some. We still want to be the only name you need to know and the only site you need to book mark to start research on any maritime or naval subject, so it was down right negligent of us to not include in our "BIG LINKS LOCKER" links to on line naval war gaming and reviews of such war gaming. So starting today we are looking into the naval computer gaming world and linking you to it. This post and subsequent posts on the subject will be featured prominently in our NAVAL INTERESTS special interest page. So, looking for a naval war game, just click into the American Admiralty Books Web site for links and reviews:

LET'S START WITH REVIEWS AND LINKS TO THE TOP TEN NAVAL BATTLE  GAMES AS RATED BY SOFTONIC .COM 

Click Here: https://en.softonic.com/articles/top-10-naval-battle-games

Here you will find short descriptions/reviews of the following along with links for direct entry into play or down loading: Below we illustrate SOFTONIC's list and provide some limited direct links. There are more links at the Softonic site. Where a download button is provided at the Softonic site we refer you to the site as it would be wise to read their review first. 

1. World of Warships:  Try it for free at  Play Free World of Warships

2. BattleStations Midway:  A Softonic site down load

3. BattleStations Pacific :  A Softonic site down load

4. Silent Hunter IV: Wolves of the Pacific:   A Softonic site download

5. Naval War: Arctic Circle: A Softonic site down load

6. Dangerous Waters:  A Softonic site down load 

7. Battle Fleet 2: World War 2 in the Pacific: Softonic site down load

8. Fighting Steel:  A Softonic site download

9. Naval Action: A Softonic site download



 NAVAL WAR GAMING IS INCOMPLETE WITH OUT NAVAL AIR Power gaming
CONSIDER DOWN LOADING POWERWar Thunder  through the download button at the Softonic site 
  Softonic describes this as a "great option" though it is not an exclusively naval site, but has "Some great naval content". The focus of the site is on air combat including air combat off of navy air craft carriers.
HOW ABOUT BATTLE GAMES BASED ON ANTICIPATED FUTURE BATTLES LIKE IN THE SOUTH CHINA SEA? Softonic suggests : 

Battlefield 4 Naval Strike (expansion pack)

"The Naval Strike expansion pack for Battlefield 4 brings naval warfare to the 21st century. Taking place in the South China Sea, an area of increasing naval tension between the US and China, the DLC pack brings multiplayer maps, new gadgets and weapons, and most importantly, a hovercraft. In the new Carrier Assault mode, you’ll be battling to sink the enemy’s aircraft carriers" Its a down load that we suggest entering from the Softonic site 
And for you swashbucklers: the Softonic site  suggests: 
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag
"For a series about climbing over rooftops and stabbing Templars, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag’s ship-to-ship combat is surprisingly complete and satsifying. Sailing across the Caribbean taking direct control of your ship – The Jackdaw – you can attack different navy’s vessels with your vast armory to get money and supplies for upgrades. But, if you would rather board an enemy vessel for some cutlass based action, you can capture it and add it to your fleet."
American Admiralty Books also suggests checking out the Softonic site  for naval warfare games that don't require a PC. 
Well that concludes our opening shot across the bow on naval war gaming with our review and links to the Softonic site a great place to start if you're spoiling for a naval battle in cyber space. 







"LADY LEX" FOUND

USS LEXINGTON CV-2  Photo taken Oct. 14, 1941 U.S. Navy photo 80-G-416362
The research vessel RV PETREL located the wreckage of the USS Lexington (AKA "LADY LEX") on March 4, 2018. The "Lady Lex was America's second purpose built air craft carrier. She was lost in combat  on May 8, 1942. She was so badly damaged by attacking Japanese forces that the USS Phelps, a destroyer. one of her escorts, had to sink her to prevent her falling into enemy hands. Her final resting place was discovered as noted  by the RV PETREL operating in expedition led by Paul Allen , co-founder of Microsoft. The LADY LEX now rests in approximately  9,842 feet of water about 430 nautical miles off of Queensland , Australia. The identity of the LEXINGTON was confirmed by remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV) which was able to confirm her markings and those of related nearby aircraft.

THE REAL GUN PROBLEM IS DEMOCRATS WITH GUNS


THE GREAT NAMAZU, 3,000 year old political commentator
GREETINGS BIPEDS!
  I recently received the below reproduced analysis of the nature of the "gun problem" in the United States. At the very bottom of the post is an analysis of our nuke problem aligned with the same basic reasoning , which I's have to judge as flawless. I received this without attribution. If anyone knows of a copyright on this analysis and informs me in the comment section I will pull it immediately unless the copyright owner would prefer that we link our readers to the original site. This is a corking good read and rock solid analysis. We reprint it in the belief that whoever wrote it wanted widest possible dissemination. We believe that every American should be aware of these facts, but again if we are inadvertently infringing on any one's copy right we will pull, credit, or link immediately upon notification.  

DO WE NEED GUN CONTROL OR DEMOCRAT CONTROL? 
In 1865, a  Democrat shot and killed Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States  .

In 1881, a  left wing radical Democrat shot James Garfield, Presi dent of the United  States - who later died from the wound.
 
In 1963, a  radical left wing socialist shot and killed John F. Kennedy, President  of the United States.

In 1975, a  left wing radical Democrat fired shots at Gerald Ford, President of the  United States.

In 1983, a  registered Democrat shot and wounded Ronald Reagan, President of the  United States.
 
In 1984,  James Hubert, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 22 people in a  McDonalds restaurant.
 
In 1986,  Patrick Sherrill, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 15 people in  an Oklahoma post office.

In 1990,  James Pough, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 10 
people at a GMAC  office.
 
In 1991,  George Hennard, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 23 people in a  Luby's cafeteria in Killeen , TX.
 
In 1995,  James Daniel Simpson, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and 
killed 5  coworkers in a Texas laboratory.

In 1999,  Larry Asbrook, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 8 people at a  church service.
 
In 2001, a  left wing radical Democrat fired shots at the White House in a failed  attempt to kill George W. Bush, President of the US.

In 2003,  Douglas Williams, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people at a  Lockheed Martin plant.
 
In 2007, a  registered Democrat named Seung - Hui Cho, shot and killed 32 people in Virginia Tech.
 
In 2010, a  mentally ill registered Democrat named Jared Lee Loughner, shot Rep.  Gabrielle Giffords and killed 6 others.

In 2011, a  registered Democrat named James Holmes, went into a movie theater and  shot and killed 12 people.

In 2012,  Andrew Engeldinger, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people in  Minneapolis.

In 2013, a  registered Democrat named Adam Lanza, shot and killed 26 people in a  school in Newtown ,CT.

As  recently as Sept 2013, an angry Democrat shot 12 at a Navy ship  yard.

Clearly,  there is a problem with Democrats and guns.

Not  one NRA member, Tea Party member, or Republican conservative was  involved in any of these shootings and murders.

SOLUTION: 
It  should be illegal for Democrats to own guns.
We  don't need gun control, we need Democrat control.
Guns  don't kill people, Democrats do!
  
Let's see if I've got this straight..... If we get nuked, it'll be by missiles built with technology Bill Clinton gave to China for campaign cash, funded by Iran with "non ransom" cash Obama gave them, with warheads developed from uranium Hillary sold to Russia and refined by Iran into weapons-grade plutonium in Russian centrifuges bought with the money Obama gave them.
And Trump's trying to undo this shit storm......but he's the Traitor. G
