China’s ministry of transport says around 700 million people, more than half of China’s population, will make 2.85 billion road, rail, air and ferry trips around the spring festival, as the holiday period is called. Even though extra services are laid on, many travelers have to queue overnight to secure a ticket.
Now that China is nearing its goal—in about 15 years China’s middle class will outnumber the entire population of the United States—it has an excess of steel and is exporting that excess at lower prices to other countries creating stiff competition across the globe. For instance, the ISSB reports that from 2013 to 2014 China increased its steel exports by 53% from 57.9 million to 88.6 million tonnes while the United States saw a 5% drop in its steel exports.
With the United States so obsessed to be #1 in everything—except for reducing the poverty rate—its capitalist oligarchs must be obsessively stressed out and worried that they are going to lose their Imperial crowns.

Utility companies have blind-sided their customers with digital meters that are harmful, dangerous, invasive and unlawful. Here are some ways for utility customers to protect themselves. More solutions are available at freedomtaker (d’o’t’c’o’m)
If you expect to post comments here about how great it is that the power companies are radiating and conducting surveillance on private properties without disclosure and consent, expect your comments to be removed. This is not censorship, it is responsible management of false information. You can always post that on your own page.

Der Rheinturm ist zurzeit das höchste Gebäude in Düsseldorf, und bietet in 168 Meter Höhe neben einer Aussichtsplattform, ein Panorama-Cafe. Nutzen Sie die Gelegenheit und betrachten Sie Düsseldorf aus der Vogelperspektive.
Ein moderner Aufzug bringt die Rheinturm Besucher in wenigen Augenblicke in luftige Höhen.
Von Außen bietet der Rheinturm ebenfalls eine Attraktion. Sobald die Dunkelheit über den Rhein einbricht, leuchten am Rheinturm Lampen auf , die die Uhrzeit anzeigen.
The Rhine Tower is currently the tallest building in Dusseldorf, and offers 168 meters in height next to a viewing platform, a panoramic cafe. Take the opportunity and look at Dusseldorf from the air.
A modern elevator takes visitors to the Rhine Tower in a few moments to lofty heights.
From outside the Rhine Tower offers also an attraction. Once darkness falls over the Rhine, the Rhine Tower light up lamps that display the time.

Electric Scooter Taxis in ParisIf you find yourself in Paris and need a taxi to move around the city without luggage, think of City Bird’s Electri-Cityservice. City Bird itself is the first French motorcycle taxi service, and they have just added a couple of Vectrix electric scooters to their fleet.
Because of the limited range of the electric scooters, they can only be booked to go to locations inside of the city. Of course, you could always take the subway, or walk, or cycle. But if you need to go somewhere quickly and still want to see the city, this seems like the way to go.

Wow. What a great job you guys have. So professional. I am in admiration.
such a difficult job…but its so exciting!!!!
Every airplane is different. Unlike learning to drive a car, you can’t just hop from one plane to another. A pilot needs familiarization (and in some cases, a whole new type of license) to fly a different kind of plane. Some are piston-powered; some are jet-powered. Some have electrically-driven controls; some are hydraulically-driven. Some have emergency oxygen; some don’t. And so on. All the switches, dials, and knobs in the cockpit control the various aircraft systems, and every aircraft has different systems.
The two main displays in front of the pilot are the PFD (primary flight display; left) and ND (navigational display; right). The pilot and copilot each have a set, and there is a pair of shared DUs (display units) in the center (arranged top-and-bottom). Each can independently display one of a few different screens of information. In the above picture, the top DU is showing engine information and the bottom DU is blank.
The information shown on the PFD is the airspeed tape (left side), the attitude indicator (center — shows the sky and ground pictorially), the altitude tape (right side), and the rate-of-climb indicator (far right). Along the top, the current autopilot mode is shown (autopilot is currently off). On the bottom is the heading indicator. The yellow text are some warnings and the green text is the altimeter setting (more on that later). The purple text is the autopilot speed and altitude settings (more on that later too).
