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. ..."

Microsoft to slash 18,000 jobs in deepest cuts in tech giant's history

Most of the job losses expected to come from firm's Nokia unit, which Microsoft acquired in April for $7.2bn

Microsoft will cut up to 18,000 jobs over the next year as it absorbs its newly acquired Nokia phone business, the company announced on Thursday.

The cuts amount to 14% of Microsoft's global workforce, and represent the deepest in the tech giant's 39-year history. They come five months into the tenure of chief executive officer Satya Nadella, who outlined plans for a "leaner" business in a public memo to employees last week.

Most of the positions come from Nokia, which Microsoft acquired in April for $7.2bn, pushing up Microsoft's headcount by 25%, to 127,000.

“My promise to you is that we will go through this process in the most thoughtful and transparent way possible,” Nadella said in an open letter on Thursday.

Microsoft said about 12,500 professional and factory workers will be cut from Nokia's devices and services division. About 13,000 are expected to receive notifications in the next six months, Nadella said. All will receive severance pay; some will receive job placement services.

Nadella said the cuts represent the fact that Microsoft is starting to absorb Nokia into the larger organisation.

“It’s important to note that while we are eliminating roles in some areas, we are adding roles in certain other strategic areas,” said Nadella. He did not offer details about what new positions might be added. More details about the company’s realignment are expected Thursday afternoon and during a public earnings call on 22 July.
