Please remember this day.

The details of the law’s 66 articles were kept secret until after it was passed. It criminalises any act of:

  • secession – breaking away from the country
  • subversion – undermining the power or authority of the central government
  • terrorism – using violence or intimidation against people
  • collusion with foreign or external forces

The new law’s key provisions include that:

  • Crimes of secession, subversion, terrorism and collusion with foreign forces are punishable by a maximum sentence of life in prison
  • Damaging public transport facilities can be considered terrorism
  • Those found guilty will not be allowed to stand for public office
  • Companies can be fined if convicted under the law
  • Beijing will establish a new security office in Hong Kong, with its own law enforcement personnel – neither of which would come under the local authority’s jurisdiction
  • This office can send some cases to be tried in mainland China – but Beijing has said it will only have that power over a “tiny number” of cases
  • In addition, Hong Kong will have to establish its own national security commission to enforce the laws, with a Beijing-appointed adviser
  • Hong Kong’s chief executive will have the power to appoint judges to hear national security cases, raising fears about judicial autonomy
  • Importantly, Beijing will have power over how the law should be interpreted, not any Hong Kong judicial or policy body. If the law conflicts with any Hong Kong law, the Beijing law takes priority
  • Some trials will be heard behind closed doors.
  • People suspected of breaking the law can be wire-tapped and put under surveillance
  • Management of foreign non-governmental organisations and news agencies will be strengthened
  • The law will also apply to non-permanent residents and people “from outside [Hong Kong]… who are not permanent residents of Hong Kong”.

The law came into effect at 23:00 local time on 30 June, an hour before the 23rd anniversary of the city’s handover to China from British rule.

Continuous Stream

June 27th, 2020 Comments off

My physics teacher once told us in class:

– Now, we’re going to do an experiment that you (little ones) will never understand.
– By the way, I don’t either.

It is a continuous stream of particles = laser. Photons are particles yet they behave like a wave at the same time. That is a very strange thing, when you come to think about it. It is not hard to prove experimentally and nowadays anyone can buy a pocket sized laser.

A laser has an exact wavelength (it is noting like a very strong torch) in this case the wavelength is λ = 650 nm and a couple of mW. Coupled with physical effects such as diffraction, infraction and possibly a gitter.

I have one of my own. A tiny one. The supreme photon source? That would be Helios our own sun.

The crate was added later… it is a locked cage. Who put it there? Is it still there? I’ll have to verify.

Fig 4.

  1. CCTV industrial styled outfit. Air plane grade aluminium casing, 15 odd years old and in perfect working condition. Sanyo product. Origin? I’m not telling (it’s from a pole 5 – 7 meters up somewhere on SoSo).
  2. 220 – 230V and grounded.
  3. Connected to the TV; BNC spliced to RCA-male. The signal went thru and it came alive!
  4. It’s working… and it is just beautiful!

Just When I Thought I Was Out They Pull Me Back In!

Dom + Roland – Hunter – Lost In The Moment – DRP – 2020

Impossible tune! It is a lucky escape that I did not hear it unheard on the dance floor. Because I would have been hospitalised fo’ su’. Impossible tune…

– But isn’t Dom + Roland one of your favourite artists, right?
– That is correct. But this is different: J. Majik, Doc, Digital, Decoder, Dilinja, Photek and many others can all hold their own ground.

This track? It can be the best… ever. That is something that you never ever think or speak off.

– Why? It is not culture. You never ever say or think that. The best track ever…

And yet, now I am uncertain. Is this actually the best drum’n’bass track ever produced? Among all? Ever? Ever never?

It is Dom. The best track ever? It is troublesome to me.

D’où Je Viens XXVIII

Fig 5.

  1. Citizens’ square and the citizens house.
  2. Very close to Gotbacksbacken.
  3. Same place. Fancy address. Did not look super confident with the stroller and attached husband/companion.
  4. Close, but not the same place. Sweden’s most famous actress is buried here and the very same tag can be found in numerous places where I live – including “grovsoprummet”; actually on a piece of cardboard taped to the wall.
  5. Are they resting or are they dead? There were atleast eight of them (in the exact same location), neatly laid on there side to rest. The photo was taken and then I and the little black bear peddled on… not using electricity. I do believe I could hear the little bear chuckle a bit. We don not ride like that.

Think About It… Hard

Before mass leaders seize the power to fit reality to their lies, their propaganda is marked by its extreme contempt for facts as such, for in their opinion fact depends entirely on the power of man who can fabricate it.
