118-signature York petition and three letters of objection, but phone mast backed

7:50am Saturday 9th May 2009

By Gavin Aitchison

A PHONE mast looks set to get the go-ahead in west York, despite objections from more than 100 local residents.

Planning officials say there is no legitimate reason to block Vodafone’s application for a 14.2-metre (47 feet) mast on the corner of Boroughbridge Road and Plantation Drive.

The application will be considered by a City of York Council committee on Thursday. Planning officer Richard Beal has advised councillors to approve it, despite 118 locals signing a petition against it and three writing letters of objection.

In a written report to councillors, Mr Beal said he recognised the “sensitive nature” of such applications, but said policies acknowledged that there was a need for such masts.

Marine Protection as Empire Expansion

David Vine and Miriam Pemberton, Foreign Policy in Focus: "At the 100-day mark, the new president has tackled an extraordinarily wide-ranging agenda, but one item will need his attention soon: closing the empire of US bases around the world. One place to start is to reverse the marine protection areas that the last president established in the Pacific."

Was sind die Derivativ-Billiarden wert?

Die Bewertung der mehreren tausend Milliarden an "Toxic Assets" dürfte nur ein Bruchteil der Probleme des Finanzsektors darstellen. Viel größer ist vermutlich die Unsicherheit bei den so genannten Derivaten.


Es ist kaum zu glauben, aber einfach nachzurechnen. Und ist es auch Wahnsinn, so hat es dennoch Methode ...

Berechnung der Finanzkrise Berechnung der Finanzkrise omeganews
Zwei Empfänger dieser Nachricht haben mich darauf aufmerksam gemacht, dass die Berechnung in der Präsentation falsch ist. Als ich die Präsentation erhalten habe, kam mir die Behauptung zunächst unglaubhaft vor. Deshalb habe ich mehrfach nachrechnet, kam dabei aber mit den vielen Nullen ins Schleudern - und habe es schließlich geglaubt. Rechnen war noch nie meine Stärke. Jetzt steht fest, dass das richtige Ergebnis der Rechnung 104 Dollar lautet. Herr H. schreibt mir dazu:

"Diese richtig gerechneten Zahlen sagen inhaltlich das Gleiche aus wie diejenigen in Ihrem gesendeten Anhang: die Unverschämtheit dieser ganzen Finanzaktionen. Jeder Betrieb, der bankrott geht, wird geschlossen, die Verantwortlichen zur Rechenschaft gezogen. Bei den Banken ist es umgekehrt: Die werden mit der Summe belohnt, um die sie die Menschen betrogen haben. Natürlich würde nicht jeder Mensch gleich Millionär, wenn die Gelder an die Menschen ausgeschüttet würden: aber für die meisten Menschen wären genau die 104 lumpigen Dollar ein Vermögen, welches sie existentiell bitternötig bräuchten! Da sieht man das ganze Ausmaß des "Imperiums der Schande" (=Buchtitel von Jean Ziegler)."

Hier in Bolivien sind 100 Dollar für viele Menschen ein Monatslohn.

Bitte entschuldigen Sie den Irrtum.
