Some of the statements of experts:

1. “Who has gold has always money”. Alan Greenspan (former Federal Reserve chairman)

2. The editor and publisher of The Gloom, Boom & Doom Report says: “Everyone should buy some gold every month, forever, in order to secure from”. (Marc Faber)

3. “Money is lying, gold is honest” and “Freedom of Gold”. Literature by Prof. Dr. Bocker (Commercially available)

4. Karsten Dabelstein, gold expert Conrad Hinrich Donner Bank of Hamburg, “I am assuming that the gold price will fall because of demand from central banks in emerging countries is no longer significantly less than 1000 dollars per ounce”.

5. Walter K. Eichelburg. “To almost $ 1,260 per ounce, it went for the gold price in June of 2010 upwards. This was followed by the correction, and now the price quoted per troy ounce around 5 percent below the high”. Walter K. Eichelburg still sees much potential for the gold price and assumes that the gold price is depressed by the central bank deliberately. His opinion: “The gold rush begins in just a few days could be the price of gold rise to $ 10,000 or more”. Overall, he sees potential to at least 50,000 dollars per troy ounce. “How high the price will go up in detail depends on the actions of central banks,” said Eichelburg. In hyper-inflationary times is also a billion dollars per troy ounce possible. The variant to invest in physical gold, or the buying of gold bullion is the best and safest investment.


“They didn’t hire me at Oktoberfest, but I don’t give a damn, cause I believe in the Apocalypse, just as it’s shown on the mural in Denver Airport, already 2797 of St. John’s prophecies have been fulfilled, guess we’ll only have to get through one more winter, I gotta show you some photos I took, these trails in the sky are all adding up until it’s darkening completely, I’ve stayed at a friend for six days and we’ve been watching these youtube channels all along, it’s only six people ruling the whole world, Freemasons and Jews, at home I have a caravan with everything, including food stock for one year, but I don’t know where to go, Professor Hans J Bocker claims that Uruguay will be safe, anyway, it’s all about demons and then comes the reaper, but now I’m gonna fly to the Philippines for two months or I’ll just take a job at a Tyrolean ski lodge.”

What is Wrong with Employing Foreigners in Top Positions?

[Pic Credit: ST]

There is an article in the TRE titled, ‘Good work by old guards being dismantled by LHL’ by a contributor calling himself ‘Disillusioned with current PAP’. The gist of his post is that too many foreigners are taking over top jobs in Singapore instead of Singaporeans. And he listed the following: 

(1) Magnus Bocker, CEO of SGX 
(2) Singapore Botanic Gardens hired Briton Dr Nigel Taylor as its director sidelining our locals 
(3) Singpost is now headed by an Austrian, Dr. Wolfgang Bier, as its Group Chief Executive Officer since Oct 2011. 
(4) Simon Israel holds position of Executive Director at our very own Temasek Holdings while Greg Curt holds position of President. 
(5) The infamous former CEO of our national transport network, SMRT, was Malaysian Saw Phaik Hwa who mismanaged our train network. 
(6) Mr Steve Leonard is the executive Deputy Chairman of IDA Singapore 
(7) Stephen Forshaw, managing director at Temasek Holdings 

The author also quoted LKY and saying ‘I may not necessary agree with everything LKY did but there is one thing I respect him – he put the interests of Singaporeans first.’ Many Singaporeans respected LKY for the things he did to improve their lives and the large turnout and outpouring of grief during his funeral were testimonies to this. 
But what is wrong with employing foreigners to these top jobs? I study them closely, I even meditated on them to try to find faults with the govt for employing these foreigners to these multimillion dollar jobs. The only problem I could find is that he missed out on those given a pink IC so not counted. They are now Singaporeans. And I think a few of the abovementioned could also have been given pink ICs. I am just guessing but this is not an issue. Tharman was quoted to have said that this is a good way to offer good jobs to ‘Singaporeans’ by bringing in foreign talent and made them instant citizens. The people cannot complain that they are foreigners anymore. 

To me the most important point is whether the govt can find Singaporeans, I mean true blue Singaporeans, not the instant tree type, to take over these extraordinary and very difficult jobs. When I look at the jobs involved, I must agree that no Singaporean is good enough to fill these positions. 

As they said, the proof is in eating the pudding. Look at the new replacement for SMRT and tell me if there is any improvement in the train services vis a vis the foreign talent Saw Phaik Hwa. Then look at the CEO of SGX. The moment they announced that Bocker is stepping down, they headed straight to the world to look for a replacement. Obviously they must have looked in house and all over Singapore and could not find any Singaporean suitable for the job. Oops, sorry, my mistake again. There is only one Singaporean that can fill the SGX job. He is the only talented Singaporean that can fill any banking and finance position, the only Singaporean talent in banking and finance, but he is already the CEO of DBS. And he is very happy there, so no point moving him to SGX. 


After thinking about this for many days, I also come to the conclusion that the Singaporeans do not have the skills set for these jobs. So it is right that these jobs must go to foreigners. I think the govt is starting to think, and starting to plan also, to train Singaporeans to fill these positions, according to Leo Yip, the MD of EDB. So maybe in another 30 years we may have some Singaporeans trained and with the skills set to fill these positions. 

So, for the next 30 years, these positions must be filled by foreign talents. No choice lah. But they can also be filled by Singaporeans if the govt gives the pink IC to the foreigners offered these jobs. Instant Singaporean also Singaporean what? Not to worry, our govt is very far sighted and always plan ahead, they said this is called proactive, always thinking ahead. Nevermind if they don’t think for the present. Now they have a 30 year plan to fill these positions with Singaporeans. Got hope, got hope for true blue Singaporeans, in 30 years time. 

I feel so comforted. Our govt is planning ahead. We are in good hands. Our future is in good hands. No need to worry. No need to kpkb for now. In 30 years time, if it is still like that, then you can complain. Must look at the long term.

Svarta demoner - min släktkrönika av Ragnar Blomqvist

Svarta Demoner beskriver min uppväxt under 30-talet och halva 40-talet!

En tid så väsenskild från dagens samhälle. Detta gäller i högsta grad för de psykiskt sjuka, som sällan kom under vård i tid. Vården var ofta undermålig, där bältesspänning och droger hörde till rutinerna. Lobotomi förekom, samt el- och insulinchocker. Detta gällde även för min mor.

Det är svårt att skriva om det svåra i livet och jag överlåter till Er kära läsare att fylla mina luckor med ER fantasi!

Gubben Höst av Eva Salqvist

”Hetta! Var är du?” ropade han, men han hade inte nog med luft i strupen för att det skulle höras. Gungställningen stod stilla, ruckades bara något av vinden. Träden stod i givakt mot den mörka skogsdungen. Några regndroppar föll tungt mot Pers huvud, men han uppfattade dem inte.

Inte Hetta också, hann han tänka innan Veronicas skrik skar genom tystnaden.

Psykiatern Per trodde det var ett karriärsdrag att få göra en stor sinnesundersökning på den kände dubbelmördaren Sigvard Hortz. Men det visade sig vara en mardröm han aldrig kunnat föreställa sig. Ondskan hade vägar han inte var beredd på och han kunde omöjligt ana var det skulle sluta.

Gubben Höst är en bok om psykopati och ondska, om arv och miljö. Men också om kärlek och vad bristen av detsamma kan orsaka.

Färdvägar vida - 100.000 km upplevelser på motorcykel av Lars-Gunnar Rinnfors

Kors och tvärs genom de nordiska länderna, genom Tyskland och till alpländerna. Följ med på motorcykelresor, som har lite av äventyr över sig även om de håller sig inom Europa.

Möt en del udda människor och upplev friheten på resor, som inte är planerade i detalj.

Innehållet är ingen typisk turistinformation utan som bokens titel antyder är det vägen som är målet.  Slingrande vägar, som följer terrängen och som går genom varierande landskap eller spikraka vägar som försvinner bort i horisonten. Körningar i solsken, dimma eller ösregn och ibland i stark blåst.

Bokens innehåll sträcker sig över en tidsperiod då mer än 100 000 kilometer körsträcka avverkats. Alla resor och utflykter finns naturligtvis inte med, utan några av de intressantaste och mest representativa resorna har valts ut.

Glöm aldrig säga farväl! av Gunnel Sofia Wahlberg Lindstedt

”Vi sa aldrig adjö till varandra. Tänk på det! Glöm aldrig säga farväl! Glöm aldrig säga farväl! Sedan .. sedan är allt för sent!”
I dessa noveller vill författarinnan skildra vikten av att leva här och nu, till fullo, eftersom vi aldrig någonsin riktigt vet vad som kan hända i livet. Det som är säkert är att vi bör ta reda på livet för det enda som är säkert i vår existens är att vi en dag dör, men vi vet aldrig när, hur eller varför.

Författarinnan skriver dikter, noveller och vetenskapliga skrifter, men är nu också i färd med att skriva en roman om svensk skola och en om olika dimensioner i livet.
