BIG electric cars - Lincoln Volt - Teslamotor

The Lincvolt:


LincVolt, a 1959 Lincoln Continental Mk IV, the car of American dreams of old, has been re-powered by Neil Young with a new series-hybrid system to run on biodiesel and electricity, enabling it to achieve emissions lower than a Prius or similar hybrid car, or any gasoline powered car getting less than 80 mpg.
Apart from all that, Neil Young, the geezer-rock specialist, has put together a team to build a car that can get 100mpg and travel in style. The basis is a 1959 Lincoln Continental Mark IV convertible.

Yep, a classic Lincoln becomes the framework for a radical re-think in hybrid design technology. Young says he wanted to do it with a real car, not some plastic pile of junk, and to do it in style. So he chose his favorite: the 1959 Lincoln. The car's build and tinker phase was only five short months and it is now on the road, cruising America.

The backbone of the car is a 150kW motor, a bank of lithium-ion batteries, and a small generator capable of running on cooking grease, biodiesel, vegetable oil, kerosene, or any combination of these. "It will even run on unleaded if you really want to," Young laughs.

The car's chief designer is the car conversion legend Johnathan Goodwin of H-Line Conversions. In an interview, Goodwin says the greatest challenge was the five thousand pound weight of the car and making it move without a lot of power waste or a sluggish feel. He also wanted to make it perform well enough that it would be an entrant into the Progressive Automotive X-Prize competition.

Neil Young wanted a classic car that gets 100mpg and drives like a smooth dream. He also wanted it to be primarily electric, but to have a very long range, which meant a fuel source. That fuel source, he insisted, could not be gasoline and ideally would be a multitude of readily-available fuels.

Both men came together and have achieved their wishes. The Linc Volt is currently running on the afore-mentioned electric motor and a temporary compressed natural gas (CNG) engine while the new generator is tweaked and perfected in Australia.

Tesla Roadster

The Tesla Roadster is a battery electric vehicle (BEV) sports car produced by the electric car firm Tesla Motors in California. The Roadster was the first highway-capable all-electric vehicle in serial production available in the United States. Since 2008 Tesla has sold 1,650 Roadsters in 30 countries through March 2011. Tesla began producing right-hand-drive Roadsters in early 2010 for the British Isles, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore.

The Roadster is the first production automobile to use lithium-ion battery cells and the first production BEV (all-electric) to travel more than 200 miles (320 km) per charge. The world distance record of 501 km (311 mi) for a production electric car on a single charge was set by a Roadster on October 27, 2009, during the Global Green Challenge in outback Australia, in which it averaged a speed of 25 mph (40 km/h). In March 2010, a Tesla Roadster became the first electric vehicle to win the Monte Carlo Alternative Energy Rally and the first to win any Federation Internationale de l'Automobile-sanctioned championship when a Roadster driven by former Formula One driver Érik Comas beat 96 competitors for range, efficiency and performance in the three-day, nearly 1,000-kilometer (621 mile) challenge.

According to the U.S. EPA, the Roadster can travel 244 miles (393 km) on a single charge of its lithium-ion battery pack, and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (0 to 97 km/h) in 3.9 seconds. The Roadster's efficiency, as of September 2008, was reported as 120 mpgge (2.0 L/100 km). It uses 135 Wh/km (21.7 kW·h/100 mi, 13.5 kW·h/100 km or 490 kJ/km) battery-to-wheel, and has an efficiency of 88% on average.

The Roadster has a base price of US$109,000 in the United States, £86,950 in the United Kingdom, and €84,000 in continental Europe. As an electric vehicle, the Roadster also qualifies for several government incentives in many nations. Tesla intends to sell the current version of the Roadster until early 2012, when its supply of Lotus Elise gliders is expected to run out, as its contract with Lotus Cars for 2,400 gliders expires at the end of 2011. The next generation is not expected to be introduced until at least 2013.

I believe and pray that this money will be well secured in your hand.
I believe and pray that this money will be well secured in your hand.


subject    I hope and pray I get back home !!!

I'm finding it hard emailing you this mail, but I feel I have no choice right now, As you very well know, Iraq is gradually undergoing a rebuilding process in some parts and there is much need for reconstruction. I am Sgt. Jefferson Timothy from Oklahoma, an a US Military force attached to Contractor for the sole purpose of reconstruction works in some parts of Iraq. I evaluate the level of destruction and offer professional advice in line with the way they intend rebuilding. With no doubt, work has been risky and challenging as we sometimes collide head on with armed insurgents and loose some soldiers during confrontation.

On the early hours of 4th September 2008 I lost a friend whom I had known for 12years during one of these confrontations. It was a very sad day but at about 1100hrs during a normal inspection routine along Haifa Street, built and occupied by the late Saddam Hussein while he was still alive and one of the hide outs of the Al Qaeda and Ayman al-Zawahiri forces. I, alongside with 3 soldiers proceeded to a marked site and as I commenced evaluation under close guard by the 3 soldiers, I discovered an unusual bulge in a cellar, which I presumed to be storage room and as I proceeded to have a closer look at it, I kicked a metal covering and found several metal boxes (6 in number) piled on top each other and locked with a padlock.

On forcing the boxes open, we discovered several armoured weapons including bullets. One of the boxes was filled with hard drugs (heroine) and two to my amazement was filled with money. On discovery of this money, I and the soldiers for close to 3 hours counted the bundles of the currencies which amounted to about US$21 Million dollars in cash, mostly 100 dollar bills, I believe however that all these belongs to the Al Qaeda and Ayman al-Zawahiri forces, and because of this reason, I instructed the soldiers with me to handover all the boxes containing the drugs and amours to our superiors in the US army and agreed to keep the funds to ourselves, so as to help establish ourselves when we return from Iraq.

But with the recent troop redeployment to Afghanistan by our president, we are afraid that the money will be discovered, so with the help of a British Doctor working here and his office enjoy some immunity, we were able to get the package out to a safe location entirely out of trouble spot with a firm in Europe. and it was believes that it belongs to a British medical doctor who was kill last month by a road side bomb in Iraq, but I have now found a much secured way of getting the package out of Europe for you to pick up since am still in the services and can not come home right now, and I will discuss this with you when I am sure that you are willing to assist me, and I believe and pray that this money will be well secured in your hand.

I want you to tell me how much you will take from this money for the assistance you will give to me. One thing I passionately ask from you is not to discuss this matter with anybody, should you have reasons to reject this offer, please and please destroy this message as any leak of this information will be very bad for us soldier here, and tarnish the reputation of other services men. I do not know how long we will remain here, and I have been shot, wounded and survived two suicide bomb attacks by special grace, this and other reasons I will mention later has prompted me to reach out for help, I honestly want this matter to be resolved immediately, please contact me as soon as possible for now my personal email;, as this is my only way of communication until I specify otherwise.

Bless you and your family.
Sgt. Jefferson Timothy

wishy washy Feel-Good America (so clever!)

It is in USA CINEMAS now.  Mr rich white man tells us that the world starving masses
will be helped by western bloody empires SHIFT ...
But Tom Shadyac has a foundation...  to help the impoverished.
Let see results.   The noble goals are spelled out on the bottom of this post.
Interview with Howard Zinn before his death

SHIFT they do.  Thanks to this film they will learn how to make the propaganda even more perfect.
The unbearable hypocrisies are fixable, without putting George Bush in Jail, huh?  Dream on.  (zinn, chomsky) ... 

Viral ESO-shit (the power of the Heart)  HOW ABOUT DEPELETED URANIUM

"Heart Math Science"    YOGHURT EXPERIMENT   "Neuro cardiology"


Webinar on 'The Interactions Between the Earth's Energetic Systems and Human Consciousness' by Institute of HeartMath Research Director Rollin McCraty, Ph.D. It was organized by the Global Coherence Initiative

According to Dr McCraty, the Heart has its own complex nervous system – the 'HEART BRAIN'. The heart sends far more information to the Brain than the Brain sends to the Heart. The Heart signals especially affect the Brain centers involved in Decision making, Creativity and Emotional Experience.'

The HEART is extremely Powerful in affecting those around Creates a very Tangible CARDIAC FIELD.......When in a state of Appreciation , heart rhythms are smooth, regular and Coherent....and when Large Groups of people are in this State of Appreciation there are lower incidences of accidents, conflict , etc. In fact when the Heart is in a Coherent state ( a state of Appreciation ) as he calls it, the Brain is able to function the way it is Designed. It is here that we make our Wisest decisions.
2001 new york terror 11 sept, not heart but geomagnetic weapons, see

Dr. Rollin McCraty spoke at length on the concept of coherence. He says, " Coherence is the state when the heart, mind and emotions are in energetic alignment and cooperation ". "It is a state that builds resiliency – personal energy is accumulated, not wasted – leaving more energy to manifest intentions and harmonious outcomes." 

He discussed 3 different hypothesis...

  • Hypothesis No. 1: All living things are interconnected and we communicate with each other via biological, and electromagnetic fields.
  • Hypothesis No. 2: Not only are humans affected by planetary energetic fields, but conversely the earth's energetic systems are also influenced by collective human emotions and consciousness. Much of the planetary field environment is made up of the collective consciousness of the inhabitants.
  • Hypothesis No. 3: Large numbers of people intentionally creating heart-coherent states of care, love, compassion and appreciation can generate a coherent standing wave that will help offset the current planetary wave of stress, discord and incoherence.

It was SUCH a great reminder to take responsibility for the Energy we put out. We can be more Masterful in our Roles, Utilizing this Creative Energy to Create Deeper Connections and really Operate as our Higher Selves....with every Heart Beat :)

I Am Review: Hollywood Director Exlores What's Right with the World

As the world is transfixed by remarkable change in the Middle East, America's popcorn culture distracts us with another Nicholas Cage road rage movie and the next around-the-clock celebrity train wreck (aka, the Charlie Sheen Show).

Into this void steps Tom Shadyac, Hollywood blockbuster director (Bruce Almighty, The Nutty Professor, Ace Ventura) with his self-financed documentary I Am (opening in LA and NY the next two weekends). The film is a universe away from the pet detective and fat man suit that Shadyac popularized.

I Am is a sure-fire conversation starter about our cultural "mental illness" and the hopeful possibilities for a global mind shift towards greater compassion and human connection.

Shadyac is a refugee from the film industry's lifestyle of conspicuous consumption. He ditched his lonely 17,000 foot Xanadu estate in Pasadena for a modest mobile home in north Malibu. In the midst of downsizing, he suffered a bike accident in 2007 that triggered Post Concussion Syndrome, resulting in paralyzing depression (from which he ultimately recovered).

I Am is the result of Shadyac's rethinking of his priorities and his journey to probe and provoke conversation around two essential questions: what's wrong with our world and what can we all do about it?

To answer these questions, Shadyac hit the road with a four member film crew to converse with a thoughtful mix of philosophers, academics, scientists and spiritual leaders -- such as Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Noam Chomsky and Howard Zinn. Talk show host Thom Hartmann, writer Marc Ian Barash and U.C. Berkeley psychology professor Dacher Keltner stand out as especially fresh and compelling voices.

Shadyac artfully weaves together contributions from this chorus of thinkers and doers to lift up ancient wisdom, critical lessons from the natural world, and insights from new human sciences about how we can live better together.

I Am provides an emotional thought fest that inspires hope for an evolutionary shift. It celebrates the better angels of human nature by spotlighting the deep reservoir of empathy that resides within each of us to act as our brother's keeper.

The film visually puts audiences through a test to prove the point. Sights and sounds of animal violence and human discord are contrasted with scenes of compassion and harmony. During both screenings I attended, the emotional shift within the theater was palatable.

I Am's examination of the long running "greed is good" ethos is timely as Wall Street's restoration kicks into high gear with new bulging profits (and socialized losses). As scientist and environmentalist David Suzuki simply asks: "What is an economy for? How much is enough?"

Likewise, the film's footage of the successful history of non-violent protest movements over the past century is well-timed with the revolutions in the Arab street, and even closer to home in Wisconsin.

The documentary is sure to arouse some cynicism from hardened critics who dismiss the film as New Age drivel or faulty science (as when Shadyac humorously demonstrates the impact of his feelings on a bowl of yogurt). That would be unfortunate, and unfair.

The film may fall short in convincing viewers about the underlying cause of the world's ills -- war, hunger, poverty and the environmental crisis. However, what I Am accomplishes in 76 minutes is to lift up the wellspring of compassion and empathy that is hard-wired in each of us, point to the invisible threads of energy that bind us, and remind us that, in the words of the late Howard Zinn, "change comes from millions of tiny acts that seem insignificant."

Audiences who care about these themes (and why not everyone?), should get to I Am early in its theatrical run to help expand its limited release and move its message into the cultural zeitgeist.

I suspect the film could have its greatest impact among young people. While the so-called Facebook generation can be driven to distraction and navel-gazing, many of them know, deep inside, that adults have left them (and their children) a broken world.

"The younger generation from age 12 and up love this film," Shadyac told a sold-out audience at a screening in Marin County last Saturday night. "They are so open and closer to the source."

The past decade has seen a stream of documentaries that catalog the failed systems of the world -- from the environment (An Inconvenient Truth) food (Super Size Me and Food Inc.) education (Waiting for Superman and Race to Nowhere) health care (Sicko), and the U.S. financial system (Capitalism: A Love Story and Inside Job).

I Am and its director are a welcomed newcomer to the documentary scene, especially since, in the end, the film offers a hopeful antidote to disconnection and despair. It is a wake-up call to the forces of good within each of us to write a new story for the world.-
Sicko is the best documentary ever.  See that one instead, and then feel how powerless you are against big money.
Try to make a simple law:  Medicine must be non-profit.  Make everyone sign it.  Make them vote for it.

Noble Goals  of a millionaire's "Foundation"
 ... they invest in the stockmarket to exploit the poor, then they make small foundations.

The Foundation For I Am (FFIA) is a 501(c)(3) and as such is a California Nonprofit Benefit company. (June 2010) The EIN# for the foundation is 27-3598794.

The specific purpose of this corporation is to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of those impoverished in our society. We will use our resources to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, and comfort the sick; we will also serve those in spiritual need, those suffering from a different kind of poverty, a poverty of perspective and purpose, through educational programs that will foster a dialogue around the ideals of love, compassion, kindness and empathy. In addition, we will financially support existing non-profits whose work is kindred with the Foundation's principles. Ultimately, the goal of The Foundation for I AM is to help usher in a more loving, kind, compassionate, and equitable world for all.

The Haven

The Haven at First & Market is a safe and welcoming place for the homeless and very poor of Central Virginia to be during the day. Opened for business on January 18, 2010, The Haven at First & Market provides this community with a central place to receive vital services and get connected to social service providers.

Shadyac was born in Falls Church, Virginia, to Julie and Richard Shadyac, a lawyer of Lebanese decent.[2] His mother, Julie, who died of cancer in 1998, had become semi-quadriplegic and spent much of Shadyac's adult life in a wheelchair.[1]

Shadyac graduated from J. E. B. Stuart High School in Falls Church, Virginia, in 1976 where he had played basketball, participated in the Key Club and made the Junior National and National Honor Societies. In both 1975 and 1976 Tom was included in Who's Who Among High School Students.

His older brother, Richard, was an attorney and is currently CEO of St. Jude's Children's Hospital fund-raising arm, ALSAC.

As a pre-law student at the University of Virginia, Shadyac produced a poster entitled "Are You a Preppie?" Borrowing from the style of National Lampoon and from the fact that preppies were in strong supply in Charlottesville and nearby Richmond, Virginia, the poster preceded the more famous The Official Preppy Handbook. The poster went into multiple printings and served as a fund-raiser for his fraternity, Sigma Chi.

He graduated from UVA in 1981, and later from UCLA Film School.

Shadyac married actress Jennifer Barker in June 1997; they subsequently divorced.

In 2007 Shadyac suffered post-concussion syndrome after a bicycle accident in Virginia, experiencing months of acute headaches and hyper-sensitivity to light and noise. The injury followed the cumulative effects of previous mild head injuries Shadyac had suffered surfing, mountain biking and playing basketball. He subsequently gave away his excess fortune (e.g., opening a homeless shelter in Charlottesville, Virginia and making a key donation to Telluride, Colorado's effort to set aside a natural area at the town's entrance), reoriented and simplified his life, sold his 17,000 square foot Los Angeles mansion and moved into a trailer park – albeit the exclusive

Paradise Cove trailer park in Malibu.

Paradise Cove, a trailer park in Malibu, California, connected to the likes of Pamela Anderson, Minnie Driver, and Mathew McConaughey and boasts amenities like Sub-Zero appliances and Italian granite counter tops.

What image comes to mind when you think of "mobile homes" and "trailer parks"?  I bet it is not this:

US luxury home.. trailer park .. lovely neighbors, all so rich and friendly.

Iraq Afghanistan 9/11

And I bet the $1 million price tag doesn't match the sterotype, either.

This is the view from the Paradise Cove mobile home park in Malibu, California. 

He later began work on the documentary I Am – which explores his personal journey, "the nature of humanity" and "world's ever-growing addiction to materialism."
