Cutting Edge Humans


An alarm bell sang out all morning in the neighborhood here: “pay attention”, “pay attention”, “PAY ATTENTION”, “PAY ATTENTION!!!” With each blast, a peacefully gorgeous day is interrupted.  The contrast is startling.

The sparrows too, tap and chirp incessantly from the wires and the gutters and the rooftops – sending Morse code sequences of warnings.  What is the message?

After a while, the screaming laughter of schoolchildren unravel part of the story.  Not a real alarm, but a hand-held siren as part of an end of the school year field day.  Yet the birds have not given up.  What is it that beckons my awareness?

I can speak to what is happening internally.  Physically, there is a sense of exhaustion, as if I can go no further.  Emotionally and spiritually solid, I wonder about the contrast.  Is this a metaphor for what is happening on a global scale?

Years ago we heard of a time to come when we’d choose; some stories describe multiple earths.  Perhaps this was an attempt to describe what we are feeling and living right now.  The densest parts of us are working like mad to catch up with the changes happening seamlessly to the parts of us not so 3D.  We are One.  What that feels like right now is akin to puberty.  Do you remember?

Parts of you would morph, seemingly overnight.  And the other parts?  Not so much.  There were days my body felt like Frankenstein – tall, clumsy and pieced together awkwardly.

The rapid acceleration in frequency leaves a wake of energy in its path – it is here, where the rest of us hangs on, desperate to catch up so some sort of stasis can be achieved.  My body is working so very hard to speed up and blend in harmony with my spirit – its exhausted.  My spirit is sort of taking off, unencumbered and excited for the next part.  All of me is not in sync, as the element of 3D “time” is worked out.

Some changes are instantaneous; its important to notice them.  Habits of speech and patterns of repetition can set you back or hold you up or both. Constant vigilance is so very effective now.

These changes are unprecedented.  We won’t find them in the medical journals or history books.  This is “cutting edge technology”.  Actually, you are “cutting edge humans”.

You heard of the potential for change and the possibility of liberation and eventual Unity realized, and you jumped right in.  You did not hold yourself back or refuse to assist.

On the contrary, you joined the team, stood in front and raised your hand.  This is what we signed up for.  First to sense and accommodate these new energies; we’ll stand as powerful examples of high vibratory humans.

It doesn’t feel like that yet maybe.  The alarms are ringing and nature itself seems to be announcing the shift.  You can feel it right down to your toes.

This week has gone by soooooooooooooo sllllooowwwwwwllllllyyyyyyyyyyy…………….  It feels like a precursor to a sudden jolt.  Up until this week I could barely keep up – so change is upon us once again.  The last time I felt like this was March 15th, 2015.  Things shifted suddenly on that day for sure. Perhaps this time we’ll create a gentler shift.  This 3D suit could use a quick upgrade to keep up with the speed of these rapidly moving energies.  Perhaps this gradual lead up will bring us closer to Unity in a clear and concrete way.

We are most certainly changing, that much is clear.  Every part of what’s in your world is blasting that message – today it is loud and insistent. 

“Pay Attention!” These discomforts, weirdnesses, aches and insights are not business as usual.  There is no usual.  There is only now.  As we re-describe each now, new ideas get introduced.  This, so that understanding comes and more is accepted.

All healing and growth happens while we sleep.  Don’t be afraid to take a nap.  Maybe two naps.  We’ll wake up stronger and unified and ready to rock. 

This is why you are here.  So the rest of us can see how it’s done. 

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.

Much love,

Elon Musk's growing empire is fueled by $4.9 billion in government subsidies

Elon Musk's growing empire is fueled by $4.9 billion in government subsidies

By JERRY HIRSCH MAY 30, 2015, 8:00 AM

Los Angeles entrepreneur Elon Musk has built a multibillion-dollar fortune running companies that make electric cars, sell solar panels and launch rockets into space.

And he's built those companies with the help of billions in government subsidies.

Tesla Motors Inc., SolarCity Corp. and Space Exploration Technologies Corp., known as SpaceX, together have benefited from an estimated $4.9 billion in government support, according to data compiled by The Times. The figure underscores a common theme running through his emerging empire: a public-private financing model underpinning long-shot start-ups.

"He definitely goes where there is government money," said Dan Dolev, an analyst at Jefferies Equity Research. "That's a great strategy, but the government will cut you off one day."

The figure compiled by The Times comprises a variety of government incentives, including grants, tax breaks, factory construction, discounted loans and environmental credits that Tesla can sell. It also includes tax credits and rebates to buyers of solar panels and electric cars.

A looming question is whether the companies are moving toward self-sufficiency — as Dolev believes — and whether they can slash development costs before the public largesse ends.

Tesla and SolarCity continue to report net losses after a decade in business, but the stocks of both companies have soared on their potential; Musk's stake in the firms alone is worth about $10 billion. (SpaceX, a private company, does not publicly report financial performance.)

Musk and his companies' investors enjoy most of the financial upside of the government support, while taxpayers shoulder the cost.

The payoff for the public would come in the form of major pollution reductions, but only if solar panels and electric cars break through as viable mass-market products. For now, both remain niche products for mostly well-heeled customers.

Musk declined repeated requests for an interview through Tesla spokespeople, and officials at all three companies declined to comment.

The subsidies have generally been disclosed in public records and company filings. But the full scope of the public assistance hasn't been tallied because it has been granted over time from different levels of government.

New York state is spending $750 million to build a solar panel factory in Buffalo for SolarCity. The San Mateo, Calif.-based company will lease the plant for $1 a year. It will not pay property taxes for a decade, which would otherwise total an estimated $260 million.

The federal government also provides grants or tax credits to cover 30% of the cost of solar installations. SolarCity reported receiving $497.5 million in direct grants from the Treasury Department.

That figure, however, doesn't capture the full value of the government's support.

Since 2006, SolarCity has installed systems for 217,595 customers, according to a corporate filing. If each paid the current average price for a residential system — about $23,000, according to the Union of Concerned Scientists — the cost to the government would total about $1.5 billion, which would include the Treasury grants paid to SolarCity.

Nevada has agreed to provide Tesla with $1.3 billion in incentives to help build a massive battery factory near Reno.

The Palo Alto company has also collected more than $517 million from competing automakers by selling environmental credits. In a regulatory system pioneered by California and adopted by nine other states, automakers must buy the credits if they fail to sell enough zero-emissions cars to meet mandates. The tally also includes some federal environmental credits.

On a smaller scale, SpaceX, Musk's rocket company, cut a deal for about $20 million in economic development subsidies from Texas to construct a launch facility there. (Separate from incentives, SpaceX has won more than $5.5 billion in government contracts from NASA and the U.S. Air Force.)

Subsidies are handed out in all kinds of industries, with U.S. corporations collecting tens of billions of dollars each year, according to Good Jobs First, a nonprofit that tracks government subsidies. And the incentives for solar panels and electric cars are available to all companies that sell them.

Musk and his investors have also put large sums of private capital into the companies.

But public subsidies for Musk's companies stand out both for the amount, relative to the size of the companies, and for their dependence on them.

"Government support is a theme of all three of these companies, and without it none of them would be around," said Mark Spiegel, a hedge fund manager for Stanphyl Capital Partners who is shorting Tesla's stock, a bet that pays off if Tesla shares fall.

Tesla stock has risen 157%, to $250.80 as of Friday's close, over the last two years.

WikiLeaks is offering $100,000 for the text of President Obama's trans-Pacific trade deal.

The transparency organization released a video on Tuesday asking for donations to crowdsource the funds.

Labor unions and progressives like Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) have heavily criticized the administration for not being transparent as it seeks to negotiate the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). The administration has said that the TPP negotiations are confidential for national security reasons.

Unions oppose TPP — a 12-state economic agreement — arguing that it would put U.S. employees in  competition with low-wage workers. Supporters argue that it would create better workplace and environmental standards worldwide.

Obama is asking Congress to grant him "fast-track" authority to pass TPP without an open-amendment process. The House is expected to vote on fast track, or Trade Promotion Authority, later this month after the Senate passed it before the Memorial Day recess.
