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. ..."

Foxconn confirms involvement in bribery scandal

Taiwan-based Foxconn, the world's largest electronics contract manufacturer, has admitted that the company is currently conducting an internal investigation into allegations that senior executives took bribes from suppliers in China and confirmed that it is cooperating with police on both sides of the Taiwan Strait.

The electronics giant, best known for making Apple's iPhones and iPads in China, released a statement on Wednesday in response to a report in Taiwan's Next Magazine, which first broke the story, denying "most" of the allegations in the magazine article but without providing specifics. The statement added that Terry Gou, the founder and chairman of Foxconn and its parent company Hon Hai, has instructed the group to identify and pursue all those involved in bribery activities and to evaluate internal controls to prevent the same from happening in the future.

Next claimed that Teng Chih-hsien, a manager with Foxconn's surface-mount technology department, was arrested by authorities in Shenzhen four months ago. Teng's department is authorized to sign lucrative contracts for equipment used by the company's various business groups and allegedly took bribes in exchange for supply contracts over an extended period of time. More than 40 suppliers have been linked to the scandal, which involves contracts worth billions of dollars, the article said.

Teng is far from the only senior executive suspected, and his arrest has sent more than a dozen others fleeing back to Taiwan, including retired former SMT department deputy general manager Liao Wan-cheng, the magazine added.

It was Gou, who has reportedly known about the allegations since July or August last year, who insisted that the case be handled strictly in accordance with the law, according to Next. Sources told the magazine that when he was informed of the issue by a Foxconn manager in charge of ethics and business violations, an infuriated Gou demanded that the perpetrators be sacked after coughing up the funds. Unlike most other Taiwanese companies in China facing bribery accusations, however, Gou had no intention of keeping the problem in-house and immediately reported it to mainland authorities.

Foxconn says that a preliminary internal probe has found that only the company's procurement executives were involved and that upper management is not under suspicion.

Under China's laws, non-Chinese nationals can be sentenced to a maximum of five years imprisonment for accepting bribes, while the maximum penalty for bribing another party is 10 years imprisonment.

Foxconn has already reportedly cut ties with testing automation equipment supplier TRI Innovation over the bribing allegations, although a spokesperson for the Taiwan-based supplier denied losing a major client and said that the company does not comment on specific customers.

Foxconn's statement on Wednesday also said that its supply chain involving Taiwanese businesses in China, its personnel in China, and its business development are normal and have not been affected by the allegations.
