California`s strong economic performance relative to other industrialized economies is driven by worker productivity

Califorias economy is bigger than the United Kingdom. If California were a country, it would be the fifth largest economy in the world. Wow! That is pretty impressive. California is home to four of the worlds ten richest people.

Its also home to four of the worlds ten largest companies by market cap. California has nearly 40 million residents and is the most populous state in the United States. Its GDP rose by $127 billion from 2016 to 2017, and their GDP surpassed $2,7 billion, according to federal data.

The United Kingdom has 65 million residents. Thats 25 million more than California, but interestingly it has a smaller GDP. The UKs capital and largest city is London, a global city and financial centre with an urban are the population of 10,3 million.

Californias economic juggernaut is concentrated in coastal metropolises around San Francisco, San Jose, Los Angeles and San Diego. It has 12 percent of the U.S population but contributed 16 percent of the countrys job growth between 2012 and 2017.

California`s strong economic performance relative to other industrialized economies is driven by worker productivity.

All economic sectors in California is growing, except agriculture, and financial services and real estate are the best sectors. Second is the information sector, which includes many technology companies.

California is known for being rich in gold and pearls, and the gold rush starting in 1848 led to dramatic social and demographic changes, with large-scale emigration from the east and abroad with an accompanying economic boom.

That`s 170 years ago.

Now, you can clearly see another boom; a tech boom. California has a thriving technology sector in Silicon Valley. The worlds smartest tech brains are there. So are the biggest tech companies. But the worlds entertainment capital can also be found in Hollywood, California.

All this makes California a global trendsetter in popular culture, innovation and politics. It is the origin of the film industry, the hippie counterculture, the internet and the personal computer, among others.

The San Francisco Bay Area and the Greater Los Angeles Area are widely seen as the centers of the global technology and entertainment industries. Many of the richest people live in San Francisco and the nation`s highest GDP per capita in 2016 was $94,000.

We have a revolution going on. So was it 150 years ago. The industrial revolution started in England. It was the name given to the first factory automation initially in the manufacture of Textiles. At that time, many current US state capitals did not exist.

At that time, London was the biggest city in the world, and England was the biggest trading nation. England produced more steel than the rest of the world put together, and steam engine driven trains were rapidly taking over long distance travel.

150 years ago saw a prolific range of inventions around electricity, culminating in the inventions of the electric light bulb and the electric motor.

Inventors in this field at this time were; Frenchmen Volta (1800 the Volt) and then Ampere (the Amp) followed by Oersted, Faraday and Maxwell. These inventors in Europe were followed by the American Edison probably the most prolific inventor of all time (1847 – 1931).

Edison produced the electric light bulb, the first public supply of electricity, the gramophone, the movies and the thermionic valve-later the triode.

English physicist Sir Joseph Wilson Swan also independently invented the electric light bulb (1860). He also invented Bromide paper (1876) still used today for photographic prints.

150 years ago telephone technology was invented. Initially the transmission of coded text messages over copper wire between England and France by Morse Code and then in the US Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone to carry voice over the same wires in 1875.

Englishman Charles Darwin publishes his theory of «Origin of Species by means of natural selection» (Now of course supported by genetics. Then dangerous and revolutionary thinking flying in the face of the accepted «Creation» in the Bible.

Now, California and Silicon Valley is the place to be. A place with economic growth which is higher than the United Kingdom. This is an evolution.

20 years since Princess Diana`s death in Paris and Mainstream Media is a huge part of the story

On Thursday 31, it is 20 years since the tragic death of Princess Diana in Paris. The question is: was it an accident or a murder? The more you scrutinize this case, the more you realize that something is terribly wrong in this world.

Princess Diana was beautiful and extraordinarily popular royal figure. She was a fashion icon. She was the people`s princess, but also big business for the mainstream media. The press was a huge part of her life, but unfortunately, also a huge part of the story of her death.

 

diana

(Princess Diana dancing with John Travolta)

 

Princess Diana died on 31 August 1997. She was fatally injured in a car crash in the Pont de I`Alma road tunnel in Paris. Nobody knows exactly what happened in the tunnel and there is a lot of conspiracy theories out there.

Diana died along with her driver Henri Paul and her companion Dodi Fayed. Bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones was the only survivor, but he was also the only one with seatbelt on.

An inquest jury at the Royal Courts of Justice in 2008 ruled the couple were unlawfully killed. The ruling blamed the deadly crash on the «gross negigence» of driver Mr Paul and the paparazzi who had been hounding their car. It found alcohol had impaired Mr Paul`s judgement and that Diana and Dodi may have survived if they had worn seatbelts.

Many people doesn`t buy this story.

Every person who talked to Henri Paul that night has said that he did not appear intoxicated before the crash. Cameras on Ritz hotel taken only minutes before take off showed that Henri Paul was not drunken as a pig but normal.

Blood samples apparently taken from Henri Paul after the crash, showed that he was hopelessly drunk, but interestingly, the blood contained a medicine called Albendazole, which Henri`s doctor said he was never prescribed.

Even more bizarrely, the same batch of blood samples contained no trace of another medicine named Acamprostate which Henri had been prescribed. Did someone switch the blood sample?

Mr Paul`s friend Claude Garrec has attempted to defend the chauffeur. He claims Mr Paul passed an aviation medical test 72 hours before the crash and has dismissed suggestions the chauffeur was an alcoholic or suffering from depression.

«If Henri was an alcoholic and depressive how was this signed by a doctor just three days before he died? And one particularly strong memory for me was the message on a wreath at his funeral, «We are not fooled.»

Mr Paul was a pilot for 20 years and had to pass strict medical tests annually, including blood and liver tests, and I flew with Henri in his plane dozens of times, Claude Garrec said. His wife and his daughter were also with them at night and in foggy weather. They wouldn`t do that if Henri was mentally unstable.

Something is wrong.

First of all; why in the world did it take 1 hour and 45 minutes to get to the hospital?

Normally it takes only 11 minutes in rush hour. At night, when the accident happened, it would have taken only a few minutes, but they didnt drive directly to the hospital. The ambulance driver was ordered by the onboard doctor to stop and park outside Paris Natural History Museum, because Diana was in critical condition.

The ambulance driver parked there for more than 10 minutes. The hospital entrance was in plain view of the parked ambulance, but no one rushed over to help. They waited too long and Diana died.

Against all French laws, immediately a team of embalmers illegally embalmed Diana`s body, whilst it was still worm. This made any post-mortem examination extremely difficult to perform. Therefore doctors were unable to find out if there had been any tampering with her body during the ambulance journey.

All 24 road traffic cameras on the way from Rits Hotel to the tunnel was not working at the time Diana were driving there. Coincidence?

The same happened the day Michael Jackson past away. Coincidence?

His brother Jermine Jackson said all the cameras was out of function the day Michael Jackson died. He said someone is behind it, and that he want to know the truth.

Michael Jackson often said to his friends not to let him be at the hospital if he was sick. They will kill me, he said. He often said that someone was after him. The same can be said about Diana. Lawyer Michael Mansfield is suspicious after police did not react more strongly to a note Princess Diana had written in which she claimed someone was plotting to kill her. This is also what Michael Jackson said, according to his sister Latoya Jackson.

Michael Jackson said very often that his job is to help people. He was helping sick and poor people and he was taking care of many children. He was also a very good father figure. He was simply a person that everybody loved and still love. But so is it with Diana.

Diana was the patroness of charities and organisations working with the homeless, youth, drug addicts and the elderly. She was often seen visiting children afflicted with cancer or battling debilitating diseases requiring surgery. Diana was also the patron of HALO Trust, the world`s oldest and largest landmine clearance organization.

She did a lot of charity works, visiting terminally ill people over the world, leading campaigns for animal protection, AIDS awareness and against the use of inhumane weapons.

Five days after Diana`s death, Mother Teresa died. Another person with a lot of charity work. «I was to leave the convent and help the poor while living among them. It was an order,» she said.

In her words, I would care for «the hungry, the naked, the homeless, the crippled, the blind, the lepers, all those people who feel unwanted, unloved, uncared for throughout society, people that have become a burden to the society and are shunned by everyone.

Mother Teresa, known in the Catholic Church as Saint Teresa of Calcutta, had a heart attack in Rome in 1983 while she was visiting Pope John Paul II, better knows as Saint John Paul the Great by some Catholics. Mother Teresa died 5 September 1997.

Princess Diana had one big problem; Mainstream Media.

Media were stalking her 24/7/365, but so was it for Michael Jackson. They both died young but many people won`t buy the story of an accident. They both said very often that “they are going to kill me.”

Diana didn`t do it easy for her self. She found a new partner and that partner was her former bodyguard; Dody Fayed. The son of Mohammed Al-Fayed which is the owner of the Paris Ritz hotel.

Dodi Fayed was a muslim. So is it with Jermine Jackson. We know that there is a huge problem with religion in this world. We know France and Paris` attitude to muslims. And we know what have happened in Paris lately.

A year before Michaels death, there were rumours about Michaels religion. The Sun and New York Post claimed that Michael Jackson had converted to Islam, but according to British popstar Yousef Islam (Cat Stevens), he didn`t have any kind of conversation ceremony with Michael.

In November 2008, Michael Jackson’s New York lawyer, Londell McMillan rejected a British press report that Michael Jackson has become a Muslim. “That’s rubbish. It’s completely untrue,” McMillan told reporters. In other words: Fake news!

Jermine Jackson converted to Islam. Not Michael Jackson.

Diana is very different from all other women, but seems to be very similar to Princess Elisabeth of Hesse and by Rhine (1864 – 1918). Elisabeth was also very beautiful and extremely popular among the people.

She was also famous in Russian society for a charitable works among poor, but in 1918, Lenin ordered the Cheka to arrest Elisabeth. A few Bolshevik (Communist party) workers took all her money and everything she had and killed her.

Her remains were removed further east and to China before being ultimately taken to Jerusalem, where she were laid to rest in the Church of Maria Magdalena.

Elisabeth was canonized by the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia in 1981, and in 1992 by the Moscow Patriarchate as New Martyr Yelizaveta Fyodorovna (Princess Elisabeth). She is one of the 10 20th-century martyrs from across the world who are depicted in statues above the Great West Door of Westminister Abbey, London, England.

Diana`s accident happened in Paris. A city since Beaumarchais and Voltaire that is often referred to as La Ville Lumière (The city of light). Both because of its leading role during the age of Enlightenment.

That has lately become a dubious honor.

Cambodias leader Pol Pot and his friends grew up under the French Colonial Empire and was not inspired by communist Stalin or Mao. They all went to school in Paris in the 1950s, and Cambodia`s Revolution, and all their ideology came from Paris. The city of light. A city were Red Khmers was born.

According to several sources, interviewed by EIR, the Paris Police Prefect (police chief), Philippe Massoni was in the tunnel, and French interior minister, Jean-Pierre Chevenement, was at the Pitie Salpetriere Hospital prior to the arrival of the ambulance carrying Princess Diana.

French media reported that, along with Massoni, other top-ranking French officials were also at the tunnel, including Patrick Rioux, chief of the Judiciary Police, and Martine Monteil, head of the Criminal Brigade.

All those officials of high-ranking French government officials placed them in charge of the so-called rescue effort.

The evidence shows that Princess Diana`s death was almost certainly the direct result of criminal negligence by these French authorities. She could have received life-saving attention earlier and probably survived.

French authorities have systematically suppressed evidence, intimidated and gagged key witnesses, badly bungled the most vital forensic test, and prevented any outside agencies, including the families of the deceased, from even raising questions about the conduct of the French officials handling the investigation.

The cumulative effort of all the falsehoods, each tracked back to French government sources, has been ruthless cover-up on the part of the French.

This case would have resulted in manslaughter prosecution of the responsible officials had the crash occurred in the United States.

The Mainstream Media were stalking Diana, better known as «Gang Stalking», which is illegal. Mainstream Media was also stalking Michael Jackson. It is a big crime. Mainstream Media`s «hate product» number one now is President Donald Trump.

A President that is fighting against the establishment which is on the left and right side and also in the mainstream media. Trump is also the President that found the word: Fake news.

In 20 years we have seen so many cover-ups and fake news about the accident i Paris. People want to know the truth, but still today, media is not telling the truth.

Lawyer Michael Mansfield said there is a good reason to suspect the Paris incident was not accidental and calls for a fresh investigation into the fatal crash.

Le Tour de France will start on Saturday in Dusseldof and Chris Froome is still a favorite to win the tour

A lot of things have happened in France lately, but on Saturday it will all be forgotten for a while. On Saturday July 1, 2017, it is time for Le Tour de France. Im an active cyclist so Im watching Le Tour de France every single year.

There are 21 stages and the race will start in Dusseldorf, Germany on Saturday July 1, with an individual time trial of 13,8 km. The finish will as always be in Paris.

Defending champion Chris Froome (Team Sky) is an all-rounder. He is climbing good in the mountains, but he is also an accomplished time trialist. He is expected to fight with Nairo Quintana in the Pyrènèes.

 

 

Tour de France is one of the reasons why so many people love France. A country that have started a new but silent revolution by President Emmanuel Macron. He is a President for a country that have never been that rich if you measure it by GDP per capita.

GDP per Capita in France reached an all time high of 41702,40 USD in 2015. GDP per capita is obtained by dividing the country`s gross domestic product, adjusted by inflation, by the total population.

At the same time; 2,7 million are unemployed.

Tour de France is probably one of the toughest endurance events an athlete can take part in. What the riders are earning is nothing compared to footballers. The total pot of prize money for the tour 2017 is worth €2,280,950.

The estimated prize money for the final position is €5,617 per hour (based on 2016 winning time). The winner in the yellow jersey will earn €500,000 for cycling 2,200 miles (3,540 kilometers) over a three-week period.

By comparison, the winner of the mens singles at Wimbledon earned £2 million last year. Thats more than four times than the winner of Tour de France. That being said; Soccer is the worlds richest sport and the fotballers are running after the ball in 90 minutes.

Macron`s economic agenda will be “essential to prevent the National Front from becoming stronger in five years time”

The election in France on Sunday was important because it could have been the beginning of the end of the European Union and the Euro. But Emmanuel Macron won and the EU and the Euro survived. At least for now.

Marine Le Pen didn`t want to stay in the European Union and promised to renegotiate European treaties in a way that would have effectively ended the single currency, the common market, and the Schengen border-fee zone.

 

 

Keep in mind that 10,6 million people in France voted for the right-wing party National Front and Marine Le Pen (Macron: 20,7 million). That is the best result ever for Le Pens party. People on that side doesnt like EU, but that doesn`t mean Macron will push for changes.

Macron said he wants more joint EU investment projects and less rigid budget-austerity rules imposed by Germany. This is also something that Theresa May will pay close attention to. The UK doesn`t want France to have a better deal than them.

Emmanuel Macron and his campaign has promised to invest $55 billion in new technologies and energy. He wants to cut primary school class sizes and expand job training, merge France`s disparate pension systems, using tax breaks to encourage jobs in poor neighborhoods.

Housing tax is not so popular in France, so Macron also wants to eliminate that too. In addition, he wants to cut payroll taxes, imposing a flat 30 percent tax on capital and refocusing France`s wealth tax solely on the property.

But where is he gonna take the money from? Macron said he will cut €60 billion through more efficient government. On top of that Macron want to pursue greater integration and tax harmonization along with stronger anti-dumping measures in EU trade pacts, which means he will start to negotiate with the European Union.

This is some of the things Macron want to do as a President of France, but is he able to do all this? Not alone of course. It depends on the election in June, and En Marche! was created only a few months ago and has no parliamentary history. That`s interesting.

Emmanuel Macron needs a majority in the National Assembly if he wants to be able to govern. That being said; in every instance since 1981, the party that wins the presidency has gone on to win a parliamentary majority. The drawback for Macron can be his weak history in politics.

He can collaborate with the Socialists or the center-right Republicans, but it can also end up to be very messy, but lets not hope so. Its the last thing France need now.

The populists in France are angry and afraid. They are afraid for immigration and jobs. Low wages and unemployment. De-industrialization and terrorism. If Macron fail, Le Pen`s party can grow and be much bigger.

Emmanuel Macron said the success of his economic agenda will be “essential to prevent the National Front from becoming stronger in five years time”.

He is a former investment banker. Educated at elite schools and became a Socialist economy minister, and he has managed to become the voice of «radical centrism».

Macron is the youngest President in French history, and the 39-year old Emmanuel Macron will be inaugurated on Sunday 14 May 2017.

At the head of a youthful movement, En Marche!, Macron wants to “re-forge France`s politics, culture, and ideology”

People in France voted on Sunday and Macron is the winner with Le Pen as a strong nr 2. Both are the winners in the first round of the election, and the winner in the second round will be the next President of France.

How in the world is it possible that two outsiders are the biggest winners? Macron is only 39 years old and no longer a member of a political party. Wow. He was unknown barely two years ago. Never elected and he defines himself as neither left or right. And he can be the next President of France?

 

 

There is no doubt. People have spoken very clearly. The want a change. Something different. Something new, and that`s exactly what Macron is. Not something from the same old stuff. He is something new. Not ordinary politicians.

Former President Barack Obama`s slogan was back then «Yes we can», «Change versus more of the same», Vote for change, Change we can believe in, Stand for change, and the list goes on. People voted for Obama because people wanted change. Not only that; he was the first black President.

The same can be said about President Donald Trump. People voted for a human being. Not a politician. It seems like people don`t trust them anymore. They wanted something new in the U.S. So is it in France at the moment.

Macron like to present himself as the energetic outsider. So is it with Donald Trump. He often talks about energy. Macron also determined to break what he calls the «complacency and vacuity» of the French political system.

At the head of a youthful movement, En Marche!, Macron wants to “re-forge France`s politics, culture, and ideology”.

Economically, Macron is liberal and pro-business, and he says he is «of the left», but keen to unite people from across the spectrum, including the right. In the hands of a political establishment interested only in self-preservation, he has said, the system «has ceased to protect those it should protect».

Macron studied philosophy, is the son of a doctor and a neurology professor. He bought himself out of his government contract and joined Rothschild & Co, reportedly making around €2m as a thrusting young investment banker, before being appointed a senior adviser by President Francois Hollande in 2012 and two years later economic minister.

Macron resigned in summertime 2016 and launched his campaign in November. Only six months later, he is on the way to Elysèe Palace.

France has been struggling for a long time now with a high degree of inequalities, unemployment, and ongoing terror threat. What is all this compared to the French Revolution I wrote about one year ago? Macron and Le Pen are not left or right candidates and the established parties of left and right are out of the game.

The established parties are humiliated for modern French party politics of left and right.

People need to vote again in two weeks time, and Macron or Le Pen will be the next President of France. It`s up to the people in France on 7 May.

France is a beautiful country, but have a lot of trouble like inequality, unemployment, social divisions, and terrorism.

They also have a ruling elite with a strong sense of entitlement. Le Pen wants to get out of the European Union, so Macron is the only way to open up to the change of progressive, liberal and pro-European reform in France. So, this is not only about France, but also about Europe and the European Union.

People in France still have a job to do and they must finish the revolution that has been going on for a while now.
