Orders mainly from the residential repair doors and windows, new residential, non-residential building renovation and new non-residential buildings. Windows and doors in the European market, from residential and non-residential buildings roughly the same order of doors and windows, from new housing and renovation of existing housing order the windows and doors are almost equally important. With the massive construction boom gradually subsided, the domestic enterprises need to focus on domestic windows and doors windows and doors market in the coming period will be similar in the market.

Second, assume the role and function of doors and windows

As people become increasingly concerned about the quality of living space, windows and doors also take a more important role and function. From a technical point of view, doors and windows bear: watertight; air tightness; wind pressure; mechanical mechanical strength; insulation; noise; security; sun; weathering; operating handle and a series of important functions. Meanwhile, the windows and doors represents a cultural landscape associated with the region, is an architect in the hands of the design elements, but also the owner of a sign showing their personality, windows and doors is the communication channel between man and the environment, and create a private living space.

Third, the hardware status of the system in the doors and windows

Automobile sales in the United States down sharply

Automobile sales in the United States down sharply
Posted on Sunday, March 26, 2017 in Uncategorized

Tuesday, February 3, 2009

Sales of automobiles in the United States fell as much as 35% in January, compared to the same month a year ago, as manufacturers reported their January sales.

Ford Motor Company NYSEF sales dropped 42% last month from the previous year. General Motors NYSEGM reported a 49% decline. Chrysler was hardest hit among the domestically owned manufacturers with a plunge of 55%.

The decline in sales has not been limited to just US manufacturers. Japanese automaker Toyota NYSETM reported a 32% drop in US sales from a year earlier, Nissan MotorsNASDAQNSANY dropped 30%, and Honda NYSEHMC sales dropped 28%.

Subaru and South Korean Hyundai Motor Company LSEHYUD were two of the few auto firms that reported an increase in sales. They posted gains of eight and fourteen percent, respectively.

On an annual basis, sales overall have also been plummeting. Industry-wide US car sales dropped 18% last year to 13.2 million automobiles.

GM announced today that it will offer voluntary buyouts to 22,000 employees in the US, in an effort to reduce its expenditures.

Last month, GM and Chrysler were given loans worth US$17.4 billion from the government after they warned of imminent bankruptcy.

Last British volume car manufacturer closes down

Last British volume car manufacturer closes down
Posted on Sunday, March 26, 2017 in Uncategorized

Friday, April 15, 2005

The last British-owned volume car manufacturer, MG Rover, has closed down, with the loss of 5,000 jobs.

International accounting firm PriceWaterhouseCooper was brought in last week to put the company into administration. Today PwC announced that MG Rover’s only hope, the Chinese car company SAIC, had no interest in buying the ailing firm. With no further source of revenue, PwC has closed the company’s factory in Longbridge, Birmingham and has laid off 5,000 workers.

Some 1,000 workers will continue for a while to complete the remaining cars left on the production line.

The BBC reported PwC joint administrator Tony Lomas as saying “We’ll explore what we would describe as the break-up of the business, we will carry on with the interested parties who want to talk about pieces of the business.”. PwC said around 70 offers for various parts of the company had been made but no serious offers of money made.

Recent efforts to save the company had been centered on convincing SAIC (Shanghai Automotive Industry Corp.) to buy the company as a going concern, but the Chinese company stated it would only buy the company if it’s financial position could be guaranteed to be secure for at least two years. The British government could not make such a commitment due to European Union trade and competition rules.

The SAIC company did buy the designs for the 75 and 25 models and for the K-Series engines for £67m.

The Rover car company has a long but troubled history. It was formed in 1968 after a series of mergers of existing car manufacturers, and was nationalized in 1975 after it ran into financial difficulties. In 1979 a long-running deal to collaborate on developing new vehicles was established with the Japanese company Honda. In 1988 the company was privatized and was bought by British Aerospace. In 1994 British Aerospace sold the business to BMW, who then sold the Land Rover brand to Ford and finally sold the company in 2000 for just £10, retaining the well-known Mini brand for themselves. The MG Rover company was run by a private group until its collapse.

MG Rover has not launched a new model since the 75 was introduced in 1998 during the period of ownership by BMW. Their next newest model was the 25, originally launched as the 200 series some ten years ago. Rover also produced the 45, which dates from 1990, and the ZF sports car first launched in 1995. Sales of Rover cars accounted for just 3% of the UK car market in 2004.

Tony Blair announced a £150 million support package for the recently unemployed workers of the MG Rover plants, though it has been claimed that his generous offer may be more as a result of the nearby marginal seats in the upcoming elections than compassion on his part.

N10 006 Real Exam}

Posted on Sunday, March 26, 2017 in Nutrition

N10-006 Real Exam


Adila Masih

Question: 1

A technician needs to limit the amount of broadcast traffic on a network and allow different segments to communicate with each other. Which of the following options would satisfy these requirements?

A. Add a router and enable OSPF.

B. Add a layer 3 switch and create a VLAN.

C. Add a bridge between two switches.

D. Add a firewall and implement proper ACL.

Answer: B


We can limit the amount of broadcast traffic on a switched network by dividing the computers into logical network segments called VLANs. A virtual local area network (VLAN) is a logical group of computers that appear to be on the same LAN even ifthey are on separate IP subnets. These logical subnets are configured in the network switches. Each VLAN is a broadcast domain meaning that only computers within the same VLAN will receive broadcast traffic.

To allow different segments (VLAN) to communicate with each other, a router is required to establish a connection between the systems. We can use a network router to route between the VLANs or we can use a Layer 3 switch. Unlike layer 2 switches that can only read the contents of the data-link layer protocol header inthe packets they process, layer 3 switches can read the (IP) addresses in the network layer protocol header as well.

Question: 2

The network install is failing redundancy testing at the MDF. The traffic being transported is a mixture of multicast and unicast signals. Which of the following would BEST handle the rerouting caused by the disruption of service?

A. Layer 3 switch

B. Proxy server

C. Layer 2 switch

D. Smart hub

Answer: A


The question states that the traffic being transported is a mixture of multicast and unicast signals. There are three basic types of network transmissions: broadcasts, which are packets transmitted to every node on the network; unicasts, which are packets transmitted to just one node; and multicasts, which are packetstransmitted to a group of nodes. Multicast is a layer 3 feature of IPv4 & IPv6. Therefore, we would need a layer 3 switch (or a router) to reroute the traffic. Unlike layer 2 switches that can only read the contents of the data-link layer protocol header in the packets they process, layer 3 switches can read the (IP) addresses in the network layer protocol header as well.

Question: 3

Which of the following network devices use ACLs to prevent unauthorized access into company systems?


B. Firewall

C. Content filter

D. Load balancer

Answer: B


A firewall is a system designed to prevent unauthorized access to or from a private network. Firewalls are frequently used to prevent unauthorized Internet users from accessing private networks connected to the Internet, especially intranets. Firewalls use ACLs (access control lists) to determine which traffic is allowed through the firewall. All traffic entering or leaving the intranet passes through the firewall, which examines each message and blocks or allows the message depending on rules specified in the ACL. The rules in the ACL specify which combinations of source IP address, destination address in IP port numbers are allowed.

Question: 4

Which of the following is used to define how much bandwidth can be used by various protocols on the network?

A. Traffic shaping

B. High availability

C. Load balancing

D. Fault tolerance

Answer: A


If a network connection becomes saturated to the point where there is a significant level of contention, network latency can rise substantially. Traffic shaping is used to control the bandwidth used by network traffic. In a corporate environment, business-related traffic may be given priority over other traffic. Traffic can be prioritized based on the ports used by the application sending the traffic. Delayed traffic is stored in a buffer until the higher priority traffic has been sent.

Question: 5

Which of the following is used to authenticate remote workers who connect from offsite? (Select TWO).


B. VTP trunking

C. Virtual PBX


E. 802.1x

Answer: DE

Explanation: D: A RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial-in User Service) server is a server with a database of user accountsand passwords used as a central authentication database for users requiring network access. RADIUS servers are commonly used by ISPs to authenticate their customers Internet connections. Remote users connect to one or more Remote Access Servers. The remote access servers then forward the authentication requests to the central RADIUS server.

E: 802.1X is an IEEE Standard for Port-based Network Access Control (PNAC). It provides an authentication mechanism to devices wishing to attach to a network. 802.1X authentication involves three parties: a supplicant, an authenticator, and an authentication server. The supplicant is a client that wishes to attach to the network. The authenticator is a network device, such as an Ethernet switch, wireless access point or in this case, a remote access server and the authentication server isthe RADIUS server.

Question: 6

Which of the following provides accounting, authorization, and authentication via a centralized privileged database, as well as, challenge/response and password encryption?

A. Multifactor authentication



D. Network access control

Answer: C


TACACS+ (Terminal Access Controller Access-Control System Plus) is a protocol that handles authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) services. Similar to RADIUS, TACACS+ is a centralized authentication solution used to provide access to network resources. TACACS+ separates the authentication, authorization, and accounting services enabling you to host each service on a separate server if required.

Question: 7

A technician needs to set aside addresses in a DHCP pool so that certain servers always receive the same address. Which of the following should be configured?

A. Leases

B. Helper addresses

C. Scopes

D. Reservations

Answer: D


A reservation is used in DHCP to ensure that a computer always receives the same IP address. To create a reservation, you need to know the hardware MAC address of the network interface card that should receive the IP address.For example, if Server1 has MAC address of 00:A1:FB:12:45:4C and that computer should always get as its IP address, you can map the MAC address of Server1 with the IP address to configure reservation.

Question: 8

Joe, a network technician, is setting up a DHCP server on a LAN segment. Which of the following options should Joe configure in the DHCP scope, in order to allow hosts on that LAN segment using dynamic IPaddresses, to be able to access the Internet and internal company servers? (Select THREE).

A. Default gateway

B. Subnet mask

C. Reservations

D. TFTP server

E. Lease expiration time of 1 day

F. DNS servers

G. Bootp

Answer: ABF


The question states that the client computers need to access the Internet as well as internal company servers. To access the Internet, the client computers need to be configured with an IP address with a subnet mask (answer B) and the address of the router that connects the company network to the Internet. This is known as the default gateway (answer A).To be able to resolve web page URLs to web server IP addresses, the client computers need to be configured with the address of a DNS server (answer F).

Question: 9

A technician just completed a new external website and setup access rules in the firewall. After some testing, only users outside the internal network can reach the site. The website responds to a ping from the internal network and resolves the proper public address. Which of the following could the technician do to fix this issue while causing internal users to route to the website using an internal address?

A. Configure NAT on the firewall

B. Implement a split horizon DNS

C. Place the server in the DMZ

D. Adjust the proper internal ACL

Answer: B


Split horizon DNS (also known as Split Brain DNS) is a mechanism for DNS servers to supply different DNS query results depending on the source of the request. This can be done by hardware-based separation but is most commonly done in software. In this question, we want external users to be able to access the website by using a public IP address. To do this, we would have an external facing DNS server hosting a DNS zone for the website domain. For the internal users, we would have an internal facing DNS server hosting a DNS zone for the website domain. The externalDNS zone will resolve the website URL to an external public IP address. The internal DNS server will resolve the website URL to an internal private IP address.

Question: 10

When configuring a new server, a technician requests that an MX record be created in DNS for the new server, but the record was not entered properly. Which of the following was MOST likely installed that required an MX record to function properly?

A. Load balancer

B. FTP server

C. Firewall DMZ

D. Mail server

Answer: D


A mail exchanger record (MX record) is a DNS record used by email servers to determine the name of the email server responsible for accepting email for the recipients domain. For example a user sends an email to The sending users email server will query the DNS zone for an MX record for the domain. The MX record will specify the hostname ofthe email server responsible for accepting email for the domain, for example, The sending email server will then perform a second DNS query to resolve to an IP address. The sending mail server will then forward the email to the destination mail server.

Question: 11

Which of the following protocols uses label-switching routers and label-edge routers to forward traffic?





Answer: D


In an MPLS network, data packets are assigned labels. Packet-forwarding decisions are made solely on the contents of this label, without the need to examine the packet itself.MPLS works by prefixing packets with an MPLS header, containing one or more labels. An MPLS router that performs routing based only on the label is called a label switch router (LSR) or transit router. This is a type of router located in the middle of a MPLS network. It is responsible for switching the labelsused to route packets. When an LSR receives a packet, it uses the label included in the packet header as an index to determine the next hop on the label-switched path (LSP) and a corresponding label for the packet from a lookup table. The old label is then removed from the header and replaced with the new label before the packet is routed forward. A label edge router (LER) is a router that operates at the edge of an MPLS network and acts as the entry and exit points for the network. LERs respectively, add an MPLS label onto an incoming packet and remove it offthe outgoing packet.When forwarding IP datagrams into the MPLS domain, an LER uses routing information to determine appropriate labels to be affixed, labels the packet accordingly, and then forwards the labelled packets into the MPLS domain. Likewise, upon receiving a labelled packet which is destined to exit the MPLS domain, the LER strips off the label and forwards the resulting IP packet using normal IP forwarding rules.

Question: 12

Which of the following is MOST likely to use an RJ-11 connector to connect a computer to an ISP using a POTS line?

A. Multilayer switch

B. Access point

C. Analog modem

D. DOCSIS modem

Answer: C


Before ADSL broadband connections became the standard for Internet connections, computers used analog modems to connect to the Internet. By todays standards, analog modems are very slow typically offering a maximum bandwidth of 56Kbps. An analog modem (modulator/demodulator) converts (modulates) a digital signal from a computer to an analog signal to be transmitted over a standard (POTS) phone line. The modem then converts (demodulates) the incoming analog signal to digital data to be used by the computer. An analog modem uses an RJ-11 connector to connect to a phone line (POTS) in the same way a phone does.

Question: 13

An administrator notices an unused cable behind a cabinet that is terminated with a DB-9 connector. Which ofthe following protocols was MOST likely used on this cable?

A. RS-232

B. 802.3


D. Token ring

Answer: A


A DB-9 connector is used on serial cables. Serial cables use the RS-232 protocol which defines the functions ofthe 9 pins in a DB-9 connector. The RS-232 standard was around long before computers. Its rare to see a new computer nowadays with a serial port but they were commonly used for connecting external analog modems, keyboards and mice to computers.

Question: 14

Which of the following connection types is used to terminate DS3 connections in a telecommunications facility?

A. 66 block


C. F-connector

D. RJ-11

B. 1000Base-SR

C. 1000Base-T

D. 10GBase-LR

E. 10GBase-SR

F. 10GBase-T

Answer: BE


1000BASE-SX is a fiber optic Gigabit Ethernet standard for operation over multi-mode fiber with a distance capability between 220 meters and 550 meters. 10Gbase-SR is a 10 Gigabit Ethernet LAN standard for operation over multi-mode fiber optic cable and short wavelength signaling.

Question: 17

CORRECT TEXTSIMULATIONYou have been tasked with testing a CAT5e cable. A summary of the test results can be found on the screen. Step 1: Select the tool that was used to create the cable test results. Step 2: Interpret the test results and select the option that explains the results. After you are done with your analysis, click the ‘Submit Cable Test Analysis’ button.

Answer: Here is the solution below

Explanation: A Cable Certifier provides Pass or Fail information in accordance with industry standards but can also show detailed information when a Fail occurs. This includes shorts, the wire pairs involved and the distance to the short. When a short is identified, at the full length of the cable it means the cable has not been crimped correctly.

Question: 18

A network engineer needs to set up a topology that will not fail if there is an outage on a single piece of the topology. However, the computers need to wait to talk on the network to avoid congestions. Which of the following topologies would the engineer implement?

A. Star

B. Bus

C. Ring

D. Mesh

Answer: C


Token Ring networks are quite rare today. Token Ring networks use the ring topology. Despite being called a Ring topology, the ring is logical and the physical network structure often forms a star topology with all computers on the network connecting to a central multistation access unit (MAU). The MAU implements the logical ring by transmitting signals to each node in turn and waiting for the node to send them back before ittransmits to the next node. Therefore, although the cables are physically connected in a star, the data pathtakes the form of a ring. If any computer or network cable fails in a token ring network, the remainder of the network remains functional. The MAU has the intelligence to isolate the failed segment.To ensure that the computers need to wait to talk on the network to avoid congestions, a Token Ring network uses a token. The token continually passes around the network until a computer needs to send data. The computer then takes the token and transmits the data before releasing the token. Only a computer in possession of the token can transmit data onto the network.

Question: 19

A network topology that utilizes a central device with point-to-point connections to all other devices is which ofthe following?

A. Star

B. Ring

C. Mesh

D. Bus

Answer: A


A Star network is the most common network in use today. Ethernet networks with computers connected to a switch (or a less commonly a hub) form a star network. The switch forms the central component of the star. All network devices connect to the switch. A network switch has a MAC address table which it populates with the MAC address of every device connected to the switch. When the switch receives data on one of its ports from a computer, it looks in the MAC address table todiscover which port the destination computer is connected to. The switch then unicasts the data out through the port that the destination computer is connected to.

Question: 20

Which of the following network topologies has a central, single point of failure?

A. Ring

B. Star

C. Hybrid

D. Mesh

Answer: B

Explanation: A Star network is the most common network in use today. Ethernet networks with computers connected to a switch (or a less commonly a hub) form a star network. The switch forms the central component of the star. All network devices connect to the switch. A network switch has a MAC address table which it populates with the MAC address of every device connected to the switch. When the switch receives data on one of its ports from a computer, it looks in the MAC address table todiscover which port the destination computer is connected to. The switch then unicasts the data out through the port that the destination computer is connected to. The switch that forms the central component of a star network is a single point of failure. If the switch fails, no computers will be able to communicate with each other.

Question: 21

Which of the following refers to a network that spans several buildings that are within walking distance of each other?





Answer: A


CAN stands for Campus Area Network or Corporate Area Network. Universities or colleges often implementCANs to link the buildings in a network. The range of CAN is 1KM to 5KM. If multiple buildings have the same domain and they are connected with a network, then it will be considered as a CAN.

Question: 22

Which of the following network infrastructure implementations would be used to support files being transferred between Bluetooth-enabled smartphones?

New fossils from 10 million year old ape found in Ethiopia

New fossils from 10 million year old ape found in Ethiopia
Posted on Sunday, March 26, 2017 in Uncategorized

Thursday, August 23, 2007

Researchers say that new, ten million-year-old fossils found in Ethiopia, prove that the theory that humans may have evolved from a species of great apes eight million years ago, may not be true, but that humans may have split from apes as long as 10.5 million years ago.

At least nine fossilized teeth, one canine tooth and eight molars, of a previously unknown species of apes found in Africa were discovered by a team of researchers from Ethiopia and Japan who then compared the 3-D make up of the teeth to other fossils that date back as far as 8 million years and found that the fossils are likely a “direct ancestor” of apes currently living in Africa and that the new ape fossils were that of a species of gorilla who ate mostly plants high in fiber.

Current fossils and research say that the evolutionary split from apes to humans occurred at least eight million years ago. The new fossils say that the split may have happened as long as 10.5 million years ago.

“Based on this fossil, that means the split is much earlier than has been anticipated by the molecular evidence. That means everything has to be put back,” said researcher at the Rift Valley Research Service in Ethiopia and a co-author of the study, Berhane Asfaw.

Despite the finds, other researchers are not convinced that the findings are correct.

“It is stretching the evidence to base a time scale for the evolution of the great apes on this new fossil. These structures appear on at least three independent lineages of apes, including gorillas, and they could relate to a dietary shift rather than indicating a new genetic trait,” said a Professor at the London Natural History Museum in the United Kingdom, Peter Andrews who also added, “but the fossil evidence for the evolution of our closest living relatives, the great apes, is almost non-existent.

Researchers have named the newly discovered species Cororapithecus abyssinicus whose remains were found in the Afar Region of Ethiopia, the same place where the remains of Lucy were discovered in 1974.

Magnetic Bracelets And Golf Are You Still Scared Of Pain ?}

Posted on Saturday, March 25, 2017 in Medical Accessories

Submitted by: John Menache

Sports and injuries go hand in hand. If you play you tend to get injured. Whether its football, basketball or formula1 you must have seen players falling, colliding and getting hurt. However, in golf no one falls and collides still they get injured. Yes, they do.

Their wrists, carpals and bones in hands are the areas that are prone to injuries. Their hands never get wounded but excessive play cause pain which can badly affect their game as well as game plan. Golfers need to practice for long hours to improve their game to come as close as to perfection. However, they need to fight with pains.

There are several medicines that can cure pain in no time however; some of them are not allowed by the authorities and others have side effects. Hence, magnetic bracelets are one of the best alternatives majority of golfers are picking to stand against the pain.

Magnetic bracelets are specially made for golfers so that the golfer can meet up their physical as well as aesthetic needs. You will see difference in an ordinary bracelet and a bracelet designed specially for golfers. Manufacturers make light weight bracelets for golfers so that they can drive and stroke with comfort and without any pain.

According to experts, magnetic bracelets are very effective if players wear them near the area affected by the pain. Magnetic force prevents the energy along with improving the physical condition of the golfer. If you dont get injured and your physical condition is stable, you can be sure of embellished performance.

You will come across large number of golfers wearing magnetic bracelets. The reason for their increasing popularity especially among golfers is the fact that they create an ionic balance between forearm tissues and the wrists consequently providing an apt form and condition.

Technically, magnets of the bracelets enhance the functionality of iron or ferrous hemoglobin in the red blood cells therefore; tissues and joints of the golfers receive more oxygen thereby decreasing pain. If youre a golfer and finding cure for pain in your wrist and hand, you should go for magnetic bracelet.

Once you get into the market to get one for you, you will come across various designs, styles and colors. However, the most common material that is being worn by the golfers is gold. Manufacturers are using gold because it is lustrous, soft looking, adds elegance to the personality and flaunt status.

The bracelet works for golfers in two ways, first as an ornament and second as healing tool. Moreover, you can wear it anywhere; on the field as well as off the field. Gold bracelets are in demand however; there price range is quite high. But you dont need to worry as you can find magnetic bracelets made from other materials as well.

You can choose bracelets made from titanium, copper, stainless steel, silver, hematite and aluminum. Every material has its own properties, so you can pick the one that suits your needs as well as personality.

Are Metal Agricultural Barns Suitable For Use With Livestock?}

Posted on Saturday, March 25, 2017 in Farming

Are Metal Agricultural Barns Suitable for Use with Livestock?


Amy Nutt

Let’s say you’re driving down the highway and you see a farm using metal barns. You see that there are tractors and other farm equipment parked around them, so you assume that the barns are used for parking their heavy farming equipment. That is when you begin to wonder if it is possible to place livestock in those barns. You know they are metal and metal tends to draw in heat, so how is such a thing not going to keep the livestock from burning up?

Believe it or not, there are ways in which the heat can be deflected away from the barn so that livestock can live inside. The truth of the matter is that farmers have been utilizing metal agricultural barns as ways to house their livestock for years. The days of wood barns are more or less over because of the durability that metal agricultural barns offer. They also offer a degree of safety that wooden barns do not. Metal barns can stand up to the elements better and they don?t offer unexpected surprises such as weak boards. In terms of security, you can secure a metal barn and not worry too much about thieves breaking in and stealing your equipment. This means that investing in metal agricultural barns can actually save you money in other ways.

What about the heat?

There have been methods adopted to help keep the inside of metal buildings agricultural barns cooled. There is also the fact that there is usually a pasture surrounding the barns so that the livestock can go outside. Sometimes you may notice that one whole side of the barn is open and it opens up into the pasture. This keeps the air circulating through the barn and allows the livestock to move in and out as they please. This is common with cattle and other large livestock.

For smaller livestock such as chickens, metal agricultural barns may be more closed in and they may have a smaller entrance and exit into a pen area. This is usually when it is good to utilize a cool roofing system such as tiles to deflect the sun or asphalt shingles. However, having a small doorway area allows the chickens to move in and out as they please and some farmers may use a fan system to pull out the heat and pull in air so that the eggs that have been laid do not get too hot.

Metal agricultural barns are also being used as horse stables. Again, one side of the barn may be open so the horse can go outside as it pleases and graze in the fields. There are just so many options when it comes to metal agricultural barns and how they can be used for both farm equipment and livestock. Actually, they can be used for virtually any purpose that you deem appropriate. It is your investment, so you can use your barn in ways that you see fit.

Other advantages

There are other advantages to metal agricultural barns. One is the fact that they are durable, so that means you’re not going to have to rebuild your barn prematurely. They are also very easy to maintain, so you’re not going to be spending all of your time maintaining your barn. The days of constant maintenance are gone, so that means you can focus on the tasks that are important rather than having to throw your energy into the buildings that house your equipment and livestock. That alone makes the investment well worth it. You?ll notice that right from the beginning.

Asbestos controversy aboard Scientology ship Freewinds

Asbestos controversy aboard Scientology ship Freewinds
Posted on Saturday, March 25, 2017 in Uncategorized

Friday, May 16, 2008

Controversy has arisen over the reported presence of blue asbestos on the MV Freewinds, a cruise ship owned by the Church of Scientology. According to the Saint Martin newspaper The Daily Herald and the shipping news journal Lloyd’s List, the Freewinds was sealed in April and local public health officials on the Caribbean island of Curaçao where the ship is docked began an investigation into the presence of asbestos dust on the ship. Former Scientologist Lawrence Woodcraft supervised work on the ship in 1987, and attested to the presence of blue asbestos on the Freewinds in an affidavit posted to the Internet in 2001. Woodcraft, a licensed architect by profession, gave a statement to Wikinews and commented on the recent events.

According to The Daily Herald, the Freewinds was in the process of being renovated by the Curaçao Drydock Company. The article states that samples taken from paneling in the ship were sent to the Netherlands, where an analysis revealed that they “contained significant levels of blue asbestos”. An employee of the Curaçao Drydock Company told Radar Online in an April 30 article that the Freewinds has been docked and sealed, and confirmed that an article about asbestos ran in the local paper.

Lloyd’s List reported that work on the interior of the Freewinds was suspended on April 27 after health inspectors found traces of blue asbestos on the ship. According to Lloyd’s List, Frank Esser, Curaçao Drydock Company’s interim director, joined Curaçao’s head of the department of labor affairs Christiene van der Biezen along with the head of the local health department Tico Ras and two inspectors in an April 25 inspection of the ship. “We are sending someone so that they can tell us what happened, where it came from, since when it has been there,” said Panama Maritime Authority’s director of merchant marine Alfonso Castillero in a statement to Lloyd’s List.

The Church of Scientology purchased the ship, then known as the Bohème, in 1987, through an organization called Flag Ship Trust. After being renovated and refitted, it was put into service in June 1988. The ship is used by the Church of Scientology for advanced Scientology training in “Operating Thetan” levels, as well as for spiritual retreats for its members. Curaçao has been the ship’s homeport since it was purchased by the Church of Scientology.

According to his 2001 statement, Lawrence Woodcraft had been an architect in London, England since 1975, and joined Scientology’s elite “Sea Organization” (Sea Org) in 1986. He wrote that he was asked by the Sea Org to work on the Freewinds in 1987, and during his work on the ship “noticed a powdery blue fibrous substance approximately 1 ½” thick between the paint and the steel wall,” which he believed to be asbestos. He also discovered what he thought was blue asbestos in other parts of the ship, and reported his findings to Church of Scientology executives. Woodcraft discussed his experiences in a 2001 interview published online by the Lisa McPherson Trust, a now-defunct organization which was critical of the Church of Scientology.

The Freewinds regularly inspects the air quality on board and always meets or exceeds US standards.

Church of Scientology spokeswoman Karin Pouw responded to Radar Online about the asbestos reports, in an email published in an article in Radar on May 1. “The Freewinds regularly inspects the air quality on board and always meets or exceeds US standards,” said Pouw. She stated that two inspections performed in April “confirmed that the air quality is safe,” and asserted that the inspections revealed the Freewinds satisfies standards set by the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the U.S. Clean Air Act.

Pouw told Radar that “The Freewinds will be completing its refit on schedule.” The Church of Scientology-affiliated organization Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) had been planning a cruise aboard the Freewinds scheduled for May 8, but according to Radar an individual who called the booking number for the cruise received a message that the cruise had been delayed due to ongoing work on the ship. Citing an article in the Netherlands Antilles newspaper Amigoe, Radar reported on May 6 that a team from the United States and supervised by an independent bureau from the Netherlands traveled to Curaçao in order to remove asbestos from the Freewinds.

…if the Church of Scientology claims to have removed the blue asbestos, I just don’t see how, it’s everywhere. You would first have to remove all the pipes, plumbing, a/c ducts, electrical wiring etc. etc. just a maze of stuff.

“I stand by everything I wrote in my 2001 affidavit,” said Lawrence Woodcraft in an exclusive statement given to Wikinews. Woodcraft went on to state: “I would also comment that if the Church of Scientology claims to have removed the blue asbestos, I just don’t see how, it’s everywhere. You would first have to remove all the pipes, plumbing, a/c ducts, electrical wiring etc. etc. just a maze of stuff. Also panelling as well, basically strip the ship back to a steel hull. Also blue asbestos is sprayed onto the outer walls and then covered in paint. It’s in every nook and cranny.”

Many Scientologist celebrities have spent time aboard the Freewinds, including Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, John Travolta, Kelly Preston, Chick Corea, Lisa Marie Presley, Catherine Bell, Kate Ceberano, and Juliette Lewis. Now magazine reported that Tom Cruise has been urged to seek medical attention regarding potential asbestos exposure, however a representative for Cruise stated he has “absolutely no knowledge” of the recent asbestos controversy. Cruise, Holmes, Travolta and Preston have celebrated birthdays and other events on the Freewinds.

There is not now and never has been a situation of asbestos exposure on the Freewinds.

In a May 15 statement to the United Kingdom daily newspaper Metro, a representative for the Church of Scientology said that “There is not now and never has been a situation of asbestos exposure on the Freewinds.” The Asbestos and Mesothelioma Center notes that agencies have recommended anyone who has spent time on the Freewinds consult with their physician to determine if possible asbestos exposure may have affected their health.

Raw blue asbestos is the most hazardous form of asbestos, and has been banned in the United Kingdom since 1970. Blue asbestos fibers are very narrow and thus easily inhaled, and are a major cause of mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is a form of cancer which can develop in the lining of the lungs and chest cavity, the lining of the abdominal cavity, or the pericardium sac surrounding the heart. The cancer is incurable, and can manifest over 40 years after the initial exposure to asbestos.

“This is the most dangerous type of asbestos because the fibres are smaller than the white asbestos and can penetrate the lung more easily,” said toxicologist Dr. Chris Coggins in a statement published in OK! Magazine. Dr. Coggins went on to note that “Once diagnosed with mesothelioma, the victim has six months to a year to live. It gradually reduces lung function until the victim is no longer able to breathe and dies.”

Children massacred in Kenyan school

Children massacred in Kenyan school

During a raid by cattle rustlers in northern Kenya, as many as 55 Kenyans were killed, twenty of them children.

Up to 400 members of the Borana tribe living across the border in Ethiopia attacked the nomadic Gabra people aiming to steal their livestock. The societies are not monetarized – cattle is the main form of wealth.

The two groups have been fighting over water and pastures for years in the semi-arid land. Cross-border raids for livestock are very common in the area, but it is said that this is one of the most deadly and severe attacks in Kenya’s history. The attack may be in retaliation for an earlier raid on the Borana, in which six people were killed.

Whole families were killed in this most recent attack. Okille Hukha survived when he ran into a bush, but his wife and four children were murdered. Darare Bathachas’ son, wife and grandson were also killed, but she survived by going under a bed.

A woman watched as her four children were killed, and her husband beheaded. A grandmother spoke of how she hid under a table while her forty year old son, his wife and their nursery school age son were killed.

Ten Borana were later killed in a revenge attack.

Kenyan police are pursuing the attackers, moving on foot in the rugged terrain but supported by three helicopters. Thousands of sheep and goats as well as cattle, camels and donkeys have been recovered.

The Kenyan Red Cross Society have sent a helicopter carrying medics and supplies to aid the injured in the local hospital.
