2016-07-02 Driver of driverless car killed in accident

1)    Another great article by Olga Sheean, describing the effects of being sensitive in this electro-smog polluted world.

I’m trying not to let it get to me, trying not to get paranoid and start imagining things that aren’t really there, on top of what I know is there. Who am I fleeing? No one. What crime have I committed? None. Yet I’m on the run from the biggest, stealthiest, most insidious take-over of all time. And I’m all alone. The corporate giants hold all the cards and the government won’t help. They know I’ve figured out what’s really going on, but they don’t want anyone else to know. There is nowhere safe for me to go and no safe way for me to get there.

2)    The industry has been pushing the idea of driverless cars, where the wireless control takes over. The first death attributed to such a car has occurred:

3)    A major legal victory for parents in Israel re. forcing children to have tablets. Please see the translation of the news article below in Letters:

“The court sent the State to receive the approval of the Committee of Education that in the past expressed resistance to the tablets program, to every payment by law.

This is an opportunity for the Ministry of Education to examine the program so that it will be done with equality, smartly and without health or any other harm to all of the children in Israel”.

Subject: Audit of effectiveness of BCUC

I am wondering how the office of auditor general can form an opinion on the effectiveness of the BCUC without considering the impact of Site C and smart meters.  Will the report discuss the limitations of the report given that the two largest projects have been removed from the jurisdiction of the BCUC and the impacts of that limitation?

Will your office include investigation of the reported fire hazards of smart meters?  Apparently there is no consistent reporting protocol of fires associated with smart meters.  Further, Hydro removes the meters before a valid investigation occurs.  Will the auditor general be able to recommend/require that Hydro leave the meters in place until after a valid fire investigation has occurred?

At present, because of the removal of the two major projects from BCUC supervision and the lack of due diligence investigating fires associated with smart meters, there has been a complete loss of confidence in the BCUC’s ability to do its job.  Considering the inability of BCUC to supervise the major projects, does the expense of running the BCUC exceed the benefit to the public?

Sincerely,
X

Tablets lawsuit: the Supreme court criticized the Ministry of Education

The Supreme court about the Ministry of Education: They take compulsory payments masked as free will payments

In the court discussion, judge Rubinstein said: “Payments from free need to be really from free will, it is needed that the equality will not only be declared, but also will be achieved in practice”.

The judges of the Supreme court criticized the Ministry of Education and hinted that in the computers program, parents must purchase tablets, although the payments are defined as permission by the law.  The vice supreme court president, Elyakim Rubinstein and  judges Yzhak Denziger and Zvi Zilbertal, determined that the Ministry of education need to finish writing the executive circular on the subject, file it for the approval of the Knesset’s Committee of Education and present another response to the court until mid September.

Hundreds of parents filed the lawsuit, against the Ministry of Education, and the municipalities of Tel Aviv, Bat Yam, Hod Hasharon, and the local councils Gilboa and Emek Hefer. Judge Rubinstein described in his decision the argument of the parents: “The argument is that clause 6 of the law of education, permits the local authorities to take payments for the supplies, permitted by the Minister and approved by the Committee of Education of the Knesset. But here they take compulsory payments, masked as payments that were given with free will, and that is why the clause is violated. This is a way of “they force him until he says ‘I want'”.   More it was argued, that this program is not reasonable,  and the equality of the pupils is violated, those whose parents cannot or don’t want to participate in the program and payments”.

Then judge Rubinstein added, that as in other initiations in Israel, also here there was no order of preparing things ahead and operating it. Things were running before they were ordered, there was no planning ahead.  Still things must be by law, free will payments, and the equality will not only be declared but also implemented.

Lawyer Haran from the clinic of law and education policy in the University of Haifa who represented the plaintiffs told Haaretz newspaper: “Today the court brought out a yellow card to the Ministry of Education. In the decision and the court discussion, it was clarified that the payments for the tablets were done illegally and without order. The court sent the State to receive the approval of the Committee of Education that in the past expressed resistance to the tablets program, to every payment by law.

This is an opportunity for the Ministry of Education to examine the program so that it will be done with equality, smartly and without health or any other harm to all of the children in Israel”.
