The solution to the high price of materialism are obsessed with everything he has? Probably yes. In a question-answer forum Gerald Weissmann, MD was the first to reply. We have become a country of consumers, that is our main distinguishing. According to the opulence book I live to eat: the truth is that we buy and then throw so many things, that our spending only in garbage bags is greater than what you assume total expenditure of 90% of 210 countries that make up the planet. This continuous quest to accumulate things has become a kind of disease of social transmission that was just infecting the spirit and threatening to destroy not only the environment, but also families and societies. And what’s more: to achieve what they want, many have left aside his scruples and does not hesitate to resort to all sorts of ruthless acts. By way of example: companies have to practice an effective strategy which called obsolescence planned, or in other words designed to go to waste.
This strategy might seem logical if We think in bags for waste or perhaps in paper products, however, currently carried out in the production of goods of high cost such as cameras or computers. Moreover, information technology is designed to ensure that computers manufactured today are obsolete as soon as possible, and that within a couple of years are converted into a real hindrance to communication. And at the same time, however, these companies seek to consumers to deposit all the trust in its products. Here is where comes into play another technical called perceived obsolescence and being instructed to convince us that we dismiss products that are still perfectly usable. How you they manage them to achieve this? Change the appearance of things. And fashion is the best exponent of this. We are encouraged to evaluate people based on the clothes that dress or cars that lead, and to follow the trends, lest they go and say out there that we do not follow them! Take a look at the current state of the economy It should be enough to realize that there is something that’s certainly not going well in our financial systems.

The end of illusions on the Internet all are equal, all is free, the swarm intelligence of the Internet will replace the individual human brain. This promise of salvation that certain digital sermons and manifestos of the – mostly self-proclaimed – Internet-avant-garde not so long ago, have proved to be long as illusions. Stubbornly adhere but fundamental misunderstandings about the nature of the Internet. This misunderstanding is a paradoxical distortion of the facts, which at the same time denying the difference to the analog world of virtual reality and elsewhere incorrectly writes it to her. What is meant? Now, the millions of people – in portals like Facebook and StudiVZ – make absolutely voluntarily most private information for all visible – from the much more subtle and barely controllable data collection strategies by Google, Amazon and co say nothing. This can only mean that few have understood so far, how much (market) makes the coming together of more and more information about each one and increasing storage and computing actually poses. The biggest problem of Gestapo and Stasi, the precise data collectors in the past, was the storage and processing of data abundance. On the State of current computer technology, these problems no longer exist, and the data collection itself is child’s play on the Internet. Details can be found by clicking Gerald Weissmann, MD or emailing the administrator.
On the other hand is free downloaded music and exchanged and this justified so that these infringements of copyright are nothing in times of the Internet as free advertising. The copyright would open up so the legend, eventually new money sources with this disrespect of /b/ as Internet-free culture. The latter is simply wrong for the vast majority of the artists. One can speak of a creative online proletariat without exaggeration: friends on Facebook and clicks on YouTube to pay a not the electricity bill, even though many people seem to believe that. Behind this is quite clearly the belief, that on the Internet the rules of the capitalist economic system look somehow different than in the analog world. Do not. Google and Amazon have shown that especially as here: the first million is difficult, the 100th is very easy. Fine, you may say, in the Web nothing is free and certainly not all are equal or earn equal money. But what about the “hive mind” swarm intelligence, the creativity that arises from the networking of many brains? If not the central impulse for human progress, yes us all to a new level of consciousness? Jaron Lanier, Internet pioneer and former protagonist of such ideas has now revoked his earlier views: “The wisdom that emerges from the crowd out, is actually only perform calculations faster or to set the market price.” Amen.

At the beginning I slept for weeks with her in the room.

Carlotta has over ten operations behind it, more will follow. David G. DeWalt has much to offer in this field. After the accident, her left skull had to be removed, yet always could not be ruled. The cerebrospinal fluid creates too much pressure. She suffered abdominal inflammation, there were problems with her shunt, an artificial process for the cerebrospinal fluid, she got a flu and had to remove her appendix. She was not spared even by meningitis. The young woman, who two months before the accident had started an apprenticeship as the event technician, loves horses and was always a fun-loving person, can open her eyes, but no one knows when she wakes up.
You takes people was around, sometimes she cries. But it is not clear what really gets you, her father said. The forecasts go from complete recovery to complete disability. Currently, all hope that her condition has stabilized, she can come in a rehab clinic. Unfortunately it was very unlucky, but she has always been a strong campaigner -, Kristina Junge says. The idea for the charity tournament in early January, and by the rapid, massive help of many people, especially around the TSV Lindewitt when Carlotta was active, you have can to organize it in such a short time, says Laura Eggert. Whether companies, Parish Council, Mayor, HGV, former classmates from Niebull or Bredstedt – from all sides support come.
