The Great Depression

I had a dream, or a nightmare, that in this bad economy stage I couldn't find any job, and went to work in a copper mine. Since the gold mines are almost gone this can be reasonable? In the economic crackdown and the end of resources I have to be a miner 200 meters under the surface, trying to steal the mineral from big corporations, and sell it on the black market.

1.5 Billion people on the net

Top 15 countries, by Internet population:

  1. China: 179.7 million
  2. United States: 163.3 million
  3. Japan: 60.0 million
  4. Germany: 37.0 million
  5. United Kingdom: 36.7 million
  6. France: 34.0 million
  7. India: 32.1 million
  8. Russia: 29.0 million
  9. Brazil: 27.7 million
  10. South Korea: 27.3 million
  11. Canada: 21.8 million
  12. Italy: 20.8 million
  13. Spain: 17.9 million
  14. Mexico: 12.5 million
  15. Netherlands: 11.8 million
China finally over cross the US, and not only on internet access. Italy? number twelve, with an half of people connected on internet of Great Britain, most of them with slow connection. Canada with an half of Italian population has more people connected on internet than Italy. Even Spain has more internet connection in base of the population. This is an index of how Italy is behind the other developed country, in term of technology.
One of the Obama programs to boost the economy is gave fast internet connection to rural area. It's this because it's necessary a better infrastructure or because the US wants to be the Number One again?
Italy should definitely do it.

The Second Superpower

Today, the first Black men (half...) president of the U.S. The Empire has a new Emperor. The last one fall down, forgotten. The second superpower won this turn?
"...the huge anti-war demonstrations around the world this weekend are reminders that there may still be two superpowers on the planet: the United States and world public opinion."

I'm wondering to see if this guy is able to have clean energy from coal as he claim.

"American Clean Energy from Coal"
