The Internet - The first Worldwide Tool of Unification ("The End of History")

" ... Now I give you something that few think about: What do you think the Internet is all about, historically? Citizens of all the countries on Earth can talk to one another without electronic borders. The young people of those nations can all see each other, talk to each other, and express opinions. No matter what the country does to suppress it, they're doing it anyway. They are putting together a network of consciousness, of oneness, a multicultural consciousness. It's here to stay. It's part of the new energy. The young people know it and are leading the way.... "

" ... I gave you a prophecy more than 10 years ago. I told you there would come a day when everyone could talk to everyone and, therefore, there could be no conspiracy. For conspiracy depends on separation and secrecy - something hiding in the dark that only a few know about. Seen the news lately? What is happening? Could it be that there is a new paradigm happening that seems to go against history?... " Read More …. "The End of History"- Nov 20, 2010 (Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

“…5 - Integrity That May Surprise…

Have you seen innovation and invention in the past decade that required thinking out of the box of an old reality? Indeed, you have. I can't tell you what's coming, because you haven't thought of it yet! But the potentials of it are looming large. Let me give you an example, Let us say that 20 years ago, you predicted that there would be something called the Internet on a device you don't really have yet using technology that you can't imagine. You will have full libraries, buildings filled with books, in your hand - a worldwide encyclopedia of everything knowable, with the ability to look it up instantly! Not only that, but that look-up service isn't going to cost a penny! You can call friends and see them on a video screen, and it won't cost a penny! No matter how long you use this service and to what depth you use it, the service itself will be free.

Now, anyone listening to you back then would perhaps have said, "Even if we can believe the technological part, which we think is impossible, everything costs something. There has to be a charge for it! Otherwise, how would they stay in business?" The answer is this: With new invention comes new paradigms of business. You don't know what you don't know, so don't decide in advance what you think is coming based on an old energy world. ..."

Alibaba to launch virtual credit card service next week

Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba Group is scheduled to launch its virtual credit card service next week as part of its policy to promote online shopping, according to a source familiar with the matter.

The source said Alibaba's online payment service Alipay is looking to partner with banks to launch online credit lines of up to 5,000 yuan (US$800) for each customer, with an interest-free period of up to 38 days.

Online shoppers would not receive a physical credit card but an Alipay account, the source said.

On average, banks offer interest-free credit of 1,000 yuan (US$160) to 50,000 yuan (US$8,000) for a period of between 20 to 56 days.

The service will be available on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, and will be confined to Alibaba's Taobao and sites.

Alipay and the group's financial arm Alibaba Small and Micro Financial Services Group could not be immediately contacted to confirm the report, the Chinese-language Chongqing Evening News stated.

A guaranteed subsidiary set up by Alibaba in Chongqing will act as a guarantor for buyers. A commission of between 0.8%-1% will be charged by the vendor when an order is placed. An overdue payment will result in a 50% interest rate penalty charge.

The group will first send a text message to customers whose payments are overdue, followed by a voice message, with the final recourse being a personal visit from a debt collector.

If all these methods still result in no payments for more than a year, the group will cancel the customer's account.

Asked whether the penalty was too light, the source said a detailed plan to deal with such scenarios was still being mapped out and had not been finalized.
