The war with nature is important now more than ever. Digital dear ticks called "Viruses" Cost us time money and grief but there isn't any goofy geeky nurd  that I can garrote at the end of the rainbow, there may be more Vectors from Plumb Island than we think but the conspicuous squaller that is nature is flipping us the ultimate Bone. No  mater what we intend good things can be turned into "Evil Things This Way Come." All we can do is guess what

This is one of my quick draw gif  of the project I want to build  that can use a conductive  polymer photo voltaic combination for long "life"  operation of a verity of other projects too ED:
The idea changes as I see more web stuff I will remain focused on my original concept as outlined
on the drone stuff page there are lots of ways to do this and  many methods and types of mines.
Do the math the mine can cost as little as $3 or so  to make and as much as  $1000 to remove
the 110 million  from  70 country's world wide.
Micro verses Macro
Goldfarb recalls.
Their final design can cover about 30 cm per second and carry a 28 gram (1 oz) payload.
That allows a battery that can keep it running for 45 minutes, long enough to cover about 800
meters (half a mile). The lightest chip video cameras available commercially weigh about 15
 grams, so the tiny robot is perfectly capable of bearing one, though there would need to be
 additional hardware incorporated for real-time broadcast of any signal. At this stage no
 camera has been mounted on the robo-bug.
 The Vanderbilt prototype was one of three micro-propulsion systems developed for the
DARPA program. Researchers at Los Alamos National Laboratory developed robots using
electric motors and gears, whilst Sandia National Laboratory built a robotic hopper powered
by gasoline. But both of these other models measure between 10 to 12 inches in length;
 substantially larger than Vanderbilt's.

 The idea behind a remote-controlled, robotic vehicle is that it would need to be able to activate both anti-personnel and anti-tank mines without being totally destroyed in the resulting blast. If such a system proved viable, it could possibly make large areas of agricultural land safe again and clear mines laid on vital transport routes. Many other teams around the world are also
experimenting with the robot insect concept for
de-mining,but they are all looking at much smaller machines, capable of finding and neutralising only a single mine at a time.

The Spider is aimed at "proofing" terrain where mines have been laid. This is different from the
detecting and removal procedures that are more commonly practised in former war zones. These
 require a painstaking search by manual or electronic means, before each mine is separately safed,
detonated or removed. This is incredibly time consuming, dangerous and expensive. At current rates
 of de-mining, it would take hundreds of years to remove the estimated 110 million landmines
scattered around the world.
Use this  google search as a beginning created robot to destroying  land mines

Take a plane, fly it over a big piece of land with a 24,0000 dot-per-inch resolution scanner, and get a survey that  is accurate to one-tenth of an inch per vertical foot of elevation. And it costs
about one-tenth as much as a regular survey…

     Experts approximate that more than 110 million land mines-
-hidden disasters waiting to happen--are buried around the world

FYI Google Search: atomic pig  FYI  this popped into my head today.
The designer that invented  the Microwave as TV once thought
about every home having one Atomic Pig . Like a privately owned
 Con Ed Plant , Then I suppose we all might turn them in to the NRC
 like a used soda bottle. And with the portability issues we could
count on at least one disgruntled citizen going ballistic and Whoops
there goes the neighbor hood Integrated into Carbon One & Cesium 130.
All of that thinking about Autonomous Personal Portable Power will transfer
to Hunter Gatherer's Cultures more easily so say the neo futurist .
All of that aside This society is poised on the edge and that  fact is what controls our back story Like May Brussal,
A.J. Musty , I.F. Stone Abby Hoffman,Paul Krasner,Bob Fass & many others might warn what we do to the OTHER
 is not Hidden. And it becomes prologue of what we are willing to do to each other .

The Telegraph, London Terrorists
 find unlikely allies in neo_Nazis

  Terrorists find unlikely allies in neo_Nazis America's right_wing extremists have welcomed the
  September 11 terrorist attack as a strike on their enemy, the United States Government.
While the vast majority of Americans have reacted with horror at what happened, a number of
 underground groups have rushed to voice support for the terrorists. Others have called for militia
 groups to exploit the chaos the terrorist actions caused to launch their own assault on the state.

 Billy Roper, of the neo_Nazi National Alliance, posted a message on his Web site saying:
"The enemy of our enemy is, for now at least, our friend. "We may not want them marrying
our daughter, just as they would not want us marrying theirs ...

But anyone willing to drive a plane into a building to kill Jews is alright by me." "We may not
 want them marrying our daughter, just as they would not want us marrying theirs. We  may
 not want them in our societies, just as they would not want us in theirs.

"But anyone willing to drive a plane into a building to kill Jews is alright by me. I wish
our members had half us much testicular fortitude."

Other postings include August Kreis, leader of a Nazi group called the Sheriff's Posse Comitatus,
 based in Ulysses, Pennsylvania, praising the "Islamic freedom fighters" on his web site, and Tom
  Metzger, of the White Aryan Resistance, who said of the September 11 attack: "If an Aryan
wants an example of 'Victory or Valhalla' look no further." The Southern Poverty Law Centre,
which for 30 years has monitored extremist groups in the United States, said these sentiments
were common among white supremist organizations. The center briefs the government on  the
 activity of "patriot" and neo_Nazi groups.

Mark Potok, the center's director of publications, said
 that the extremists considered themselves at war with
 the government, which they have named the Zionist
Occupation Government, or ZOG.

 Regardless of their racial beliefs, many express solidarity with those who attack their enemy
as long as they do not want to settle in America.
 McVeigh's anger at government actions against such groups _ particularly the FBI's siege of
Waco in 1995 which ended when followers of David Koresh set their compound on fire, killing
more than 80 people _ caused him to leave his bomb outside the Alfred P Murrah Building.
 Mr Potok said: "It has been primarily the white supremacist, neo_Nazi groups, who are among the
 most extreme of the extreme Right organizations, who have supported the September 11
  attack. It illustrates the sea change that has occurred in their thinking over the last 25 years.

 "Then they wrapped themselves in the flag
 and proclaimed themselves100 per cent

 Now they are willing to join  America's enemies if it will help
create the state they want to establish.
" Although the number of "patriot" groups has dwindled from 800
 inthe mid 1990s to fewer than 200 many are believed to have
 extensive arsenals of weapons.
There are also believed to be 600  neo-Nazi groups.

Reviews: This film is filled wit the most completely fraudulent flagrantly  romantic and grotesque view of humanity I have ever seen & for its time it was the best a completely Eurocentric America  could absorb, seen through that lens it is a master peace  of pseudo humanitarianism & Americanism  although it totally ignores the Asian, Hispanic, Latino, Native American communities altogether. I recommend you see This film & read Michael Moors book "Stupid Whit Men" in the same day as a Propaganda Gestalt, purgative, infusion or renewal of the beliefs derived from the films that fowled it. ED
               From All Movie Guide  
               Tales of Manhattan is a sumptuous multipart film centered around a formal tailcoat.
               The coat is specially designed for stage actor Charles Boyer, who wears it during a
               rendezvous with his lady friend (Rita Hayworth). The lady's husband (Thomas
               Mitchell) shoots Boyer, thus the tailcoat is damaged merchandise and sold at a
               discount to a bridegroom (Cesar Romero). When the groom's peccadillos catch up to
               him, the bride (Rita Hayworth) chooses to marry the best man (Henry Fonda) instead,
               and the coat is shipped off to a second hand store. It is purchased by a would-be
               composer (Charles Laughton), who wears it the night that he is to conduct his first
               symphony; alas, the coat is too tight and tears apart, nearly ruining the conductor's
               debut. Stitched back together, the coat is donated to a skid row mission, wherein the
               kindly proprietor gives the coat to a down and out drunkard (Edward G. Robinson) so
               that the shabby gentleman can attend his 25th college reunion. Later on, the coat is
               stolen by a crook (J. Carroll Naish) in order to gain entrance to a fancy charity ball.
               The crook holds up the ball and stuffs the loot in the pockets of the coat, but while
               escaping in an airplane he loses the outer garment. The coat floats down to an
               impoverished African American shanty community; a farmer (Paul Robeson) decides
               to distribute the "money from heaven" amongst his needy neighbors. At the end, the
               tattered coat adorns the shoulders of a scarecrow. Tales of Manhattan is one of the
               best "portmanteau" dramas turned out by Hollywood; it was directed by French
               expatriate Julien Duvivier, a past master of the multi-story technique. Hal Erickson

See my letter at the bottom of the page and the response of the writer from
a recent Foreign Affairs Journal article on Sudan.
Dear Mr. Rose:

In "Sudan's Eternal War" (March/April 2002) Randolph Martin presents the
most accurate assessment of Sudan that I have read in any U.S. publication.
I hope that every member of the U.S. Congress reads the article. The one
fact that continues to puzzle me about most profiles of Sudan is the use of
the term Arab to refer to the historic Nubian people of Northern Sudan. Mr.
Martin refers to them as Arab Sudanese. Having discussed this matter with
various experts, including members of the Sudanese National Corporation for
Antiquities and Museums, it needs to be made clear that the majority of
Sudanese people are of historic Nubian stock. The genetic studies support
this fact. If we were able to travel back to ancient Nubia 3,000 years ago
the makeup of Nubian society would look similar to what it is today in
modern Sudan.

To be Islamic, to embrace Arabic culture, or even to have a distance
relative from the Arab gulf region does not transform someone into an Arab.
Additionally, given the fact that Gulf Arabs were created out of an earlier
East African stock further convolutes this position. To call a modern
Sudanese an Arab is akin to calling an African American, a European.

The Foreign Affairs people passed your email on to me.  Thanks for the
supportive review!

You are absolutely right about the Nubian civilization.  What is strange to
me, however, is the number of "Nubians" who will tell you that they are in
fact "Arabs", if not descendants of the Prophet himself - all outward
appearances to the contrary.  I remember the same phenomenon in Egypt -
where I also lived for a couple of years in the late 70's.  The Copts would
deny any Arab lineage - pointing to their pharonic heritage.  They were
furthermore fond of pointing to Anwar Sadat's physical profile and its
similarity to pharonic depictions - arguing that Sadat, like most Egyptians,
are not really Arabs either.  This is not my field of expertise.  I have
taken my lead from how the people I have met identify themselves - however
mislead they may be!

Thanks again for taking time to write.  I have adjusted my talking points
based on your apt observations
