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. ..."

Use of robots increases in China, may overtake Japan: report

China is in the process of becoming the world's leding operator of industrial robots as an increasing number of its factories turn to mechanical devices to cope with rising labor costs and shortages. The number of industrial robots in use in the country could overtake Japan to be the highest in the world by 2015, reports Japan's English-language Nikkei Asian Review.

Mingzhi Technology, an auto parts maker in Suzhou in eastern China's Jiangsu province, has six robots working on its production lines. It plans to install more for grinding metal this year to increase its production efficiency and to cope with its limited labor force, the company's equipment manager said.

Around 20 businesses producing metal castings and bolts showed great interest in the latest industrial robots during an exhibition in Zhangjiagang in Jiangsu in December. They were impressed by the speed and accuracy the robots exhibited in assembly and painting.

In 2005, only 4,500 robots were sold in China but the figure is likely to reach 280,000 this year, which is almost neck and neck with Japan, according to the International Federation of Robotics. The figure may even reach 340,000 units by 2015, around 3,000 higher than Japan's projected figure.

Labor shortages are the main reason that the Chinese manufacturing sector has embraced the use of automation. Many workers from the country's younger generation cannot stand harsh working conditions on the production line and quit after a few months, said Mingzhi Technology's equipment manager. Rising labor costs have also contributed to the demand for robots, as wages in Suzhou have doubled since 2008. Meanwhile the government has set a goal for income levels to double between 2010 and 2020.

The time needed for businesses to recover the costs they spend on robots is also shrinking, said Japanese robotics firm Yaskawa Electric Corporate. The time to recover the costs of a small multi-joint robot — which can replace two human workers — has been reduced to two years from three to four years in 2008.

Installing automated systems and maintenance services are the biggest problems that Chinese businesses encounter. They cannot find the professionals needed to automate their production lines, said a vice manager of a Chinese company producing parts for car air conditioning systems.

The Chinese government has stepped up its investment in training and developing professionals for the robotics industry. The country's 12th five-year plan highlights the importance of the industry and recognizes that robots can help the manufacturing sector improve quality and efficiency.

The Changzhou Institute of Mechatronic Technology established a robotic technician academy in May last year to train talent in anticipation of booming demand for robots. Its students will be trained to weld, transport and assemble robots on 17 mechanical devices provided by Yaskawa Electric and Japanese auto component maker Denso.

Universities and national research institutes meanwhile have also granted Siasun Robot & Automation, a company controlled by the Chinese Academy of Science's automation research institution in Shenyang, Liaoning province, access to their robotics research. The company has produced robots which can weld, paint and transport at automobile factories and reported a 30% increase in its revenue in 2012 at 1.04 billion yuan (US$171 million).
