[Picard's quarters]

(classical music is playing)

RIKER: Bizet?

PICARD: Berlioz. What do you have?

RIKER: We've finished our first sensor sweep of the Neutral Zone.

PICARD: Oh, fascinating. Twenty particles of space dust per cubic metre. Fifty-two ultra-violet radiation spikes and a class two comet. Well, this is certainly worthy of our attention.

RIKER: Captain, why are we out here chasing comets?

PICARD: Let's just say that Starfleet has every confidence in the Enterprise and her crew. They're just not sure about her Captain. They believe that a man who was once captured and assimilated by the Borg should not be put in a situation where he would face them again. To do so would introduce an unstable element to a critical situation

RIKER: That's ridiculous! Your experience of the Borg makes you the perfect man to lead this fight.

PICARD: Admiral Hayes disagrees.

TROI (on intercom): Bridge to Captain Picard.

PICARD: Go ahead.

TROI (on intercom): We've just received word from the fleet. They've engaged the Borg.

[Enterprise-E bridge]

PICARD: Data, put Starfleet frequency one four eight six on audio.

DATA: Aye sir.

FLEET COMMUNICATIONS: Flagship to Endeavor. Standby to engage at grid A-fifteen.

BARCLAY: Doctor Cochrane. I know this sounds silly, but can I shake your hand? ...Thank you, Doctor. I can't tell you what an honour it is to work with you on this project.

LAFORGE: Reg!

BARCLAY: I never imagined I'd be meeting the man who invented the warp drive.

LAFORGE: Reg!

BARCLAY: I'm sorry. Right. ...Thanks.

COCHRANE: Do they have to keep doing this?

LAFORGE: It's just a little hero worship

LAFORGE: To tell you the truth I can't say I blame them. We all grew up hearing about what you did. Or what you're about to do. You know I probably shouldn't be telling you this but I went to Zefram Cochrane High School.

COCHRANE: Really?

LAFORGE: You know? I wish I had a picture of this.

COCHRANE: What?

LAFORGE: Oh well, you see, in the future this whole area becomes an historical monument. You're standing almost on the exact spot where your statue's gonna be.

COCHRANE: Statue?

LAFORGE: Yeah! It's marble, about twenty metres tall and you're looking up at the sky. Your hand sort of reaching to the future.

COCHRANE: I gotta to take a leak!

LAFORGE: Leak? I'm not detecting any leak.

COCHRANE: Don't you people from the twenty-fourth century ever pee?

LAFORGE: Oh, leak, I get it. ...That's pretty funny.

COCHRANE: Excuse me.

LAFORGE: There she is. She's beautiful. ...All right. Take a look.

COCHRANE: Well, well, well. What have we got here? ...I love a good peep show.

(Cochrane looks through a telescope and sees the Enterprise orbiting)

COCHRANE: Ha, ha, ha. That's a trick. Ha, ha, ha. How'd you do that?

LAFORGE: It's your telescope.

TROI: That's our ship. The Enterprise.

COCHRANE: And Lily's up there right now?

TROI (OC): That's right.

COCHRANE: Can I talk to her?

RIKER: We've lost contact with the Enterprise. We don't know why yet.

COCHRANE: So, what is it you want me to do?

RIKER: Simple. Conduct your warp flight tomorrow morning just as you planned.

COCHRANE: Why tomorrow morning?

RIKER: Because at eleven o'clock an alien ship will begin passing through this solar system.

COCHRANE: Alien? You mean extra-terrestrials. More bad guys?

TROI: Good guys. They're on a survey mission. They have no interest in Earth. ...Too primitive.

COCHRANE: Oh!

RIKER: Doctor, tomorrow morning when they detect the warp signature from your ship and realise that humans have discovered how to travel faster than light, they decide to alter their course and make first contact with Earth, right here.

COCHRANE: Here?

LAFORGE: Uh, actually over there.

RIKER: It is one of the pivotal moments in human history, Doctor. You get to make first contact with an alien race, and after you do, everything begins to change.

LAFORGE: Your theories on warp drive allow fleets of starships to be built and mankind to start exploring the Galaxy.

TROI: It unites humanity in a way no one ever thought possible

The American Presidency Project

Lyndon B. Johnson

XXXVI President of the United States: 1963-1969

412 - Memorandum on Inaugurating a Test Program To Reduce Hard-Core Unemployment

October 2, 1967

Memorandum for:

The Secretary of Defense

The Secretary of Commerce

The Secretary of Labor

The Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare

The Secretary of Housing and Urban Development

The Administrator of General Services Administration

The Director of Office of Economic Opportunity

The Administrator of Small Business Administration

We are launching today a major test program to mobilize the resources of private industry and the Federal Government to help find jobs and provide training for thousands of America's hard-core unemployed.

The heart of this new effort is to reach the forgotten and the neglected--those citizens handicapped by poor health, hampered by inadequate education, hindered by years of discrimination, and by-passed by conventional training programs.

To succeed in this venture will take more than promises or good intentions. It will require--on an unprecedented scale--the concerted action and involvement of the private sector, working closely with the Federal Government.

As we embark on this new course, let us be clear about what is involved: our purpose is not to hand out but to help up, to help provide every American the opportunity for a good job at a good wage.

Our goal is to replace the waste and failure of unemployment with the productivity of meaningful work.

We call upon private industry to join us in tackling one of America's most urgent domestic problems. I have no doubt that the private sector will respond. For we have witnessed in the past few months a remarkable series of events which attests to the dedication of American business in meeting the needs of the society in which it flourishes:

--On September 12, 1967, the insurance companies in this country agreed to commit St billion of their funds for investments in city core areas to improve housing conditions and to finance job creating enterprises. Some of these resources are already financing promising housing projects and insurance company executives and officials of this Administration are working together to develop other projects.

--A project has been launched to use surplus Federal lands to meet the housing needs of our cities in which the efforts of private developers will be the most important single element.

--A Committee, headed by Edgar F. Kaiser and composed of distinguished industrialists, bankers, labor leaders and specialists in urban affairs is examining every possible means of encouraging the development of a large-scale efficient construction and rehabilitation industry to reclaim the corroded core of the American city.

--Upon the recommendation of the Kaiser Committee we have begun the "Turnkey Plus" project to encourage private industry not only to develop and build, but also to manage public housing.

In this effort, we will again attempt to bring the great resources of the private sector to bear on a critical national problem. Through the great talents and energies of private industry, with full support from the Federal Government, we hope to:

--Bring new job training opportunities in existing plants to the hard core unemployed.

--Create new jobs and new training opportunities for the seriously disadvantaged in plants which will be established in or near areas of concentrated unemployment.

--Encourage new enterprises combining the resources of big and small businesses to provide jobs and job training opportunities for the disadvantaged.

To initiate this effort, the resources of the Departments of Commerce, Defense, Labor, Health, Education and Welfare, and Housing and Urban Development, the Office of Economic Opportunity, the General Services Administration and the Small Business Administration will be combined to provide maximum assistance and to minimize the added cost of those in private industry willing to assume responsibility for providing training and work opportunities for the seriously disadvantaged.

Initially, nearly $40 million from a wide variety of existing programs will be made available, as will millions of dollars worth of surplus Federal property and excess Federal equipment.

We will offer to private industry:

--A full spectrum of aid to assist them in recruiting, counseling, training, and providing health and other needed services to the disadvantaged.

--Aid which will enable them to experiment with new ways to overcome the transportation barriers now separating men and women from jobs.

--Surplus Federal land, technical assistance and funds to facilitate the construction of new plants in or near areas of concentrated unemployment.

--Excess Federal equipment to enable them to train more disadvantaged people.

--Assistance to joint enterprises combining the resources of big and small businesses to bring jobs and training opportunities to the disadvantaged.

I have asked the Secretary of Commerce and the Secretary of Labor to direct this test program and insure that all available Federal resources are utilized. The Secretary of Commerce will designate a full-time Special Representative as the single point of contact for private employers participating in this project. The Special Representative will provide employers with one-stop service for the entire Federal Government and will make whatever arrangements are appropriate with the various Federal agencies for all forms of Federal assistance.

The Secretary of Labor will designate a full-time officer in the Manpower Administration to work with the Special Representative of the Secretary of Commerce in connection with the training and employment elements of these projects.

I have also asked the Secretaries of Defense, Health, Education and Welfare, and Housing and Urban Development, the Director of the Office of Economic Opportunity, the Administrators of the General Services Administration and the Small Business Administration to assist the Secretaries of Commerce and Labor in this test program and to assign a single official in their agencies who will coordinate their efforts in support of this program.

Provision will be made for continuing liaison with local projects and for careful research and evaluation to crystallize field experience into guidelines for future action.

I have asked the Secretary of Commerce to invite corporations throughout the country to join this new effort to bring meaningful employment to disadvantaged citizens both in existing plants and, where feasible, in new locations near areas of concentrated unemployment.

I have directed each Department and Agency of this Government to give top priority to all phases of this important effort.

The American Presidency Project

Gerald Ford

XXXVIII President of the United States: 1974 - 1977

145 - Toasts of the President and Prime Minister Dzemal Bijedic of Yugoslavia.

March 19, 1975

Mr. Prime Minister, distinguished guests:

It is a pleasure to welcome you to Washington and to this historic house. I understand that in your birthplace of Mostar in Yugoslavia, there is a famous stone bridge which has been standing for a very long time. I hope, Mr. Prime Minister, the relationship between Yugoslavia and the United States will be as long as the history of that famous bridge.

The foundation, Mr. Prime Minister, as you well know, is the cooperative relationship between the United States and the People's Republic of Yugoslavia. It was built more than a quarter of a century ago. As a matter of fact, I was in the Congress of the United States at the time that this new relationship began and developed and is now flourishing.

This relationship, Mr. Prime Minister, is anchored, as I see it, in a strong mutual interest in Yugoslavia's independence, its integrity, and its unity, as well as a mutual desire, Mr. Prime Minister, to maintain peace in Europe as well as in the rest of the world. I think it symbolizes the cooperation between two countries with entirely different social and political systems.

Like the bridge in Mostar, Mr. Prime Minister, the one between our nations and our peoples has withstood the test of time. It has facilitated an impressive growth in trade, in business, in scientific and cultural cooperation, as well as tourism.

While the currents sometimes passing, Mr. Prime Minister, beneath this bridge have ebbed and flowed, its basic structure has remained intact. The principles upon which it rests remain as sound today as two decades ago.

I look forward, Mr. Prime Minister, to the further strengthening of American-Yugoslav cooperation, and I know we are both aware that this will require a continuing commitment from both governments.

Bearing in mind our common interest in continued peace and security in the world, I think we must strive to eliminate misunderstandings and any narrow differences which sometimes, unfortunately, arise between us.

The history of this relationship indicates that we have made an excellent start. I am sure--it is my conviction that it will be successful in the future.

I raise my glass to your health, Mr. Prime Minister, and to the bridge between our two countries. May it continue to facilitate cooperation, understanding, and friendship between our two peoples.

Note: The President spoke at 2:12 p.m. in the State Dining Room at the White House.

Prime Minister Bijedic spoke in Serbo-Croatian. His remarks were translated by an interpreter as follows:

Mr. President, gentlemen:

Allow me to thank you for the words of welcome and friendship addressed to me and my associates. Our visit to the United States of America constitutes a further expression of mutual desire for the promotion of friendship and cooperation between our two countries, a friendship established upon longstanding tradition and alliance during two world wars.

Our visit to your country is taking place at the moment when you have started preparations for the Bicentennial of the United States, the anniversary of the day on which, as the result of the struggle of American people against colonialism and foreign domination, the Declaration of Independence was adopted.

Many years later, my country, too, went through the liberation, war, and revolution. I accentuate this because both of our peoples aspired toward the same objective--to live in freedom and independence, to freely determine their destiny and vigilantly guard it.

I shall call forth, Mr. President, another date in the history of the relations between our two countries. That is the year 1881, the year in which the first interstate agreement was concluded--the trade agreement between the United States of America and Serbia signed at Belgrade in October 1881, which is still in force.

Rare are today bilateral agreements which have stood a test of time. Our two countries have experienced together the most severe historic tests of this century, fighting as allies against the joint enemies.

Over the whole period following the Second World War, they have continually voiced their determination to promote all-round equitable cooperation and mutual relations, for their own benefit and in the broader interest.

Particularly important for the development of relations between Yugoslavia and the United States was the exchange of visits between the two Presidents in 1970 and 1971 and the visit of Secretary of State Dr. Kissinger to Belgrade a few months ago.

We are highly appreciative, Mr. President, of the message you have addressed to President Tito and in which you have clearly set forth the desire of the United States to continue the policy of good relations with Yugoslavia.

Likewise, we highly appreciate your acceptance of the invitation extended by President Tito to visit Yugoslavia in the course of this year.

We are confident that this confirms once again the preparedness of your Government and your own, Mr. President, for the continuation and promotion of mutual, friendly relations. We will welcome you in Yugoslavia as a dear guest.

I share, Mr. President, your view and that of your Government that relations between the United States and Yugoslavia have been' developing successfully, regardless of the differences of stances and views in respect to some international issues.

It is our sincere desire that these differences, wherever it is possible, be reduced through mutual efforts, more frequent contacts, mutual understanding and respect for the positions of the other side.

Yugoslavia, as an independent, socialist, and nonaligned country, has a constant interest in developing relations with the United States, based on principles of the respect for sovereignty, equality, and noninterference; that is, the principles that are outlined in the joint statement of the Presidents of Yugoslavia and the United States, signed at Washington in 1971.

Yugoslavia is particularly concerned that the solutions for the existing hotbeds of military conflicts, which at any moment may become sources of new and even more difficult large-scale international crises, be sought through negotiation and full respect for the Charter and resolutions of the United Nations, as well as through agreements reached between the parties concerned.

Mr. President, in expressing my thanks for the invitation extended to me to visit your beautiful country, the country of the people whose working energies and technological advances are admired throughout the world, I wish to emphasize our great satisfaction that we are coming here at a time when, in the relations between our two countries in many fields--particularly the economic, scientific, and cultural fields--a significant upward trend has been registered.

The trade between the two countries--and I mention this as an example--has increased by almost 60 percent in the course of 1 year. Significant banking and credit arrangements have been concluded. Joint ventures and the volume of industrial cooperation have been stepped up.

The same applies to the scientific and technological cooperation, the cooperation among universities, and the cultural exchange.

The celebration of the 200th anniversary of the United States, in respect of which preparations are in progress in Yugoslavia for participation in this historic jubilee, constitutes one more opportunity to display our constant concern for the continuation of our traditional cooperation and friendship with your country.

More than a million Americans of Yugoslav descent, loyal citizens of the United States, live here today. We feel proud that in the history of the United States, in its struggle for independence and the building up of its constitutionality, the names of many individuals of Yugoslav extraction have been inscribed, people who spared no effort and sacrificed their lives to contribute to the well-being of this country.

Allow me, esteemed Mr. President, to propose this toast to your health, to the health of your associates, for the progress and prosperity of the United States of America, for the strengthening and promotion of friendly relations and cooperation between our two countries, for peace and progress in the world, and for the same bridge that you have toasted for, which has already lived there for 410 years.

SFOR INFORMER


Bridge over troubled waters

by Capt. Bente Ravn

First published in SFOR Informer #11, May 28, 1997

Mostar - The war in Bosnia and Hercegovina (BiH) caused much pain and destruction. Many people lost family, friends, and homes and some cities became divided. One of the best known of these is Mostar, the largest city in Hercegovina with 109,000 inhabitants. In 1522 Mostar became the headquarters of the Ottoman administration of Hercegovina. Many military missions against Venetian cities were launched from the city, which came under Austrian control from 1878-1918, and then became part of Yugoslavia. Today it is a part of BiH.

According to a pre-war consensus, Mostar’s population consisted of 20 % Bosnian-Serbs, 40 % Bosniacs and 40 % Bosnian-Croats. There are practically no longer any Bosnian-Serbs in the city, they are living in the mountains south and east of the city. Bosniacs, make up 55 % of the city’s inhabitants live east of the river. Bosnian-Croats make up the remaining 45 %, and live on the west side of the Neretva.

Mostar has a story to tell. It is the story of the Old Bridge, an elegant single span arch built over the river Neretva by the Ottoman Turks. Mostar is an old city, established in the 15th century when a small settlement began to form around an old Roman wooden bridge over the Neretva river, but the name Mostar comes from the old white limestone bridge Stari Most (most means bridge, and stari means old - hence Mostar) which was finished in 1566 after nine years construction for the Ottoman emperor Sultan Sleiman the Magnificent.


On November 9, 1993, during bitter civil war in the city, the bridge was shelled by a Bosnian Croat tank from Mt. Hum. One of its last roles had been to allow Muslim defenders of the "left bank" cross the river and take supplies to their supporters and the population that had remained there. It withstood many centuries, but it could not survive this concentrated effort to demolish it. After several direct hits, this magnificent piece of history crashed into the waters below.










from the private journal of Kerry Burgess: 11/30/07 6:05 AM
I had an odd dream, last night I think, that I associate with that programmed roll the space shuttle stack makes just after lift off.

In the dream, though, I had jumped off a bridge and the water was a very long ways down. I was absolutely certain I would survive the fall though and I was thinking to myself that I needed to take a large gulp of air just before I hit the surface because I was going to go far below the surface. But I was also preparing myself to pull my legs up to my chest after I went under the surface so that I would not go as far below the surface than if my body remained in a shape similar to an arrow. There was also something about someone waterskiing nearby behind a jet ski. It seemed that water skiier said something to me but I don't know how that was possible because he was so far off.

From 7/23/1973 ( I passed the Multistate Bar Examination ) to 2/18/1978 ( I was competitor at first Ironman triathlon ) is: 1671 days


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ironman_Triathlon


The Ironman World Triathlon Championship or Ironman Triathlon is an annual triathlon race, made famous by its grueling length, race conditions, and sports television coverage.

Held every Fall in the US city of Kailua-Kona, Hawaii the race encompasses three endurance events of a 2.4 mile (3.86 kilometre) ocean swim in Kailua-Kona Bay, followed by a 112 mile (180.2 kilometre) bike ride across the Hawaiian lava desert to Hawi and back), and ending with a 26 7/32 mile (42.195 kilometre) marathon


The idea for the original Ironman Triathlon arose during the awards ceremony for the 1977 Oahu Perimeter Relay (a running race for 5-person teams). Among the participants were numerous representatives of both the Mid-Pacific Road Runners and the Waikiki Swim Club, whose members had long been debating which athletes were more fit, runners or swimmers.


to a local runner who was notorious for his demanding workouts, Collins said, "Whoever finishes first, we'll call him the Iron Man." Each of the racers had their own support crew to supply libations, nutrition, and encouragement during their long journey. Of the fifteen men to start off the in early morning on February 18th, 1978, twelve completed the race.










From 2/18/1978 ( the inaugural Ironman triathlon in Hawaii secretly includes my biological brother Thomas Reagan the United States Navy officer ) To 5/7/1992 ( the first launch of the United States space shuttle Endeavour orbiter vehicle mission STS-49 includes me Kerry Wayne Burgess the United States Marine Corps officer and United States STS-49 pilot astronaut and my 1st official United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration orbital flight of 4 overall ) is 5192 days

From 11/2/1965 ( my birth date in Antlers Oklahoma USA and my birthdate as the known official United States Marshal Kerry Wayne Burgess and active duty United States Marine Corps officer ) To 12/11/1972 ( my biological brother Thomas Reagan the United States Navy Commander circa 1972 was United States Apollo 17 Challenger spacecraft United States Navy astronaut landing and walking on the planet Earth's moon ) is 2596 days



From 12/1/1984 ( the United States Navy warship USS Taylor FFG 50 commissioned into United States Navy battle force fleet active service - departing 11 February 1986 as Kerry Wayne Burgess the United States Navy Fire Controlman Petty Officer 3rd Class my first United States Navy fleet assignment beginning 19 December 1984 ) To 5/7/1992 is 2714 days

RIKER: Continue with the testing, Mister Worf. Here's the final schedule for the shore leave and for the personnel transfers. By the way, I'm looking forward to meeting your parents.

WORF: Sir?

RIKER: They're on the visitors' list. You didn't know?

WORF: No, sir. It is inappropriate for a Klingon to receive family while on duty. As humans, my parents do not understand.

RIKER: Well, I'm not sure that I would either, Worf, since this isn't a Klingon ship. If you don't want to see your parents, that's your business, but we don't get to Earth all that often. I'm sure we can arrange for you to have more off duty time while they're here.

WORF: No, sir. That will not be necessary.

RIKER: Dismissed. Mister Worf, if you're worried that they might learn about what happened on the Klingon planet

WORF: Not at all. I have already informed them by correspondence of my discommendation. I do not believe any human can truly understand my dishonour.

O'BRIEN: No sir.

WORF: My mother is never on time. It is so human of her.

WORF: I am not looking forward to this. I wish they would come so it would begin and end sooner.

SERGEY: Can you imagine an old enlisted man like me raising a boy to be an officer?

HELENA: Come on, Sergey. There's plenty of time to chat with the boys. Your father has been so looking forward to this.

Russell Watson - Where My Heart Will Take Me
(from internet transcript)
It's been a long road
Getting from there to here
It's been a long time
But my time is finally near
And I can feel the change in the wind right now
Nothing's in my way
And they're not gonna hold me down no more
No, they're not gonna hold me down
'Cause I've got faith of the heart
I'm going where my heart will take me
I've got faith to believe
I can do anything
I've got strength of the soul
And no one's gonna bend or break me
I can reach any star
I've got faith
I've got faith, faith of the heart
It's been a long night
Trying to find my way
Been through the darkness
Now I finally have my day
And I will see my dream come alive at last
I will touch the sky
And they're not gonna hold me down no more
No, they're not gonna change my mind
'Cause I've got faith of the heart
I'm going where my heart will take me
I've got faith to believe
I can do anything
I've got strength of the soul
And no one's gonna bend or break me
I can reach any star
I've got faith, faith of the heart
I've known the wind so cold, I've seen the darkest days
But now the winds I feel, are only winds of change
I've been through the fire and I've been through the rain
But I'll be fine
'Cause I've got faith of the heart
I'm going where my heart will take me
I've got faith to believe
I can do anything
I've got strength of the soul
And no one's gonna bend or break me
I can reach any star
'Cause I've got faith of the heart
I'm going where my heart will take me
I've got strength of the soul
No one's gonna bend or break me
I can reach any star
I've got faith
I've got faith, faith of the heart

Captain KIRK: And I'm dead?

Captain PICARD: Not exactly. As I said, this is some kind of...

KIRK/PICARD: Temporal nexus.

KIRK: ...Yeah, I heard you. ...Something is missing.

(the 'missing' two slices of toast pop up from the toaster)

PICARD: Captain, look! I need your help. I want you to leave the Nexus with me. ...We have to go back to a planet, Veridian Three. ...We have to stop a man called Soran from destroying a star. Millions of lives are at stake.

KIRK: You said history considers me dead. Who am I to argue with history?

PICARD: You are a Starfleet Officer. You have a duty...

KIRK: I don't need you to lecture me. I was out saving the galaxy when your grandfather was in diapers. Besides which, I think the galaxy owes me one. All right, ...I was like you once ...so completely blinded by duty and obligations that I couldn't see anything past this uniform. And in the end, what did it get me? An empty house. ...Not this time.

(Kirk purposefully climbs the stairs)

KIRK: This time I'm going to walk up these stairs, march into that bedroom ...and tell Antonia that I want to marry her. ...This time it's going to be different.

(Picard follows Kirk through the bedroom door into a barn)

[Nexus Idaho farm barn]

PICARD: This is not your bedroom.

KIRK: No, it's not. ...It's better!

PICARD: Better?

KIRK: This is my uncle's barn in Idaho. I took this horse out for a ride eleven years ago ...on a spring day, ...like this. If I'm right, this is the day I met Antonia. ...This Nexus of yours is very clever. I can start all over again ...and do things right from day one.

(Kirk mounts the horse and rides out. Picard goes to saddle another horse to follow him)

[Nexus Idaho countryside]

(Kirk jumps a ravine on the horse and back)

KIRK: I must have jumped that fifty times. Scared the hell out of me. Except this time. ...Because it isn't real.

(Kirk sees a woman on a horse on a distant hill)

PICARD: Antonia?

"The Stand"





A short while ago I made some profound observations after I decided to select for viewing the season four episode titled "No Exit" from the 13 February 2009 of the "Battlestar Galactica" television series.

I wanted to stop to transcribe the profound parts, because I am giving the informed public notice about severe criminal activity that is present in their midst, because that is my responsibility in my role as a legitimate law enforcement officer of the United States of America federal government, but I decided to wait until sometime later to describe the relevant details. It's not as though people are going to jump off their chairs any time soon and haul their fat asses down to make arrests of the racketeering organization that created the Nazi propaganda "Battlestar Galactica" television series.

So I started out tonight to watch all of those final episodes, as "No Exit" is the fifth episode before the series finale titled "Daybreak" of the severe racketeering organization the "Battlestar Galactica" television series. After watching "No Exit" I decided I did not want to watch the following episodes though and so I decided, with some reluctance, to watch at least part of the DVD I got recently for the severe racketeering production the Stephen King "The Stand" television miniseries.

The reason I have paused the DVD is because some dialog reminds me of a dream I had about a day or two ago. That might have been the dream I awoke from the last time and got up out of bed to sit down at my desk and then think about for a while and while I was working on other public notices I generate.

Only just now watching the scene did I think the dream could have been about the scene I have just now watched.

Now, that might seem to be a normal dream. I have often written about how I dream about work. I have written several times about how my dreams sometimes are based on the work I do during my waking hours.

But the question I am asking myself now is about the triviality of the details that seems to be connected to what I have just watched on DVD and the details I saw in that recent dream when I was sleeping.

The first detail that seems trivial is about how I have watched that DVD only one time and that was awhile ago. A brief search through my journal on this public blog indicates I first watched that DVD back on Tuesday, December 06, 2011.

So why would I dream such a trivial detail as I write about here? The detail is that I saw a man in my dream and I was outrunning him in an Ironman triathlon. I vaguely considered, about twelve hours ago, the notion that the man, who was the leader of the competitors, was a man with dark skin. At least once during the past day, I thought about the most vague of thoughts that I had thought during the dream that he was "flagging" on the run course and that detail is very vague but that particular thought did cause me to think it might be something to do with "The Stand" but I didn't even begin to think about anything even remotely similar to the scene I reference now with "Campion." I also did not even consider the possibility of watching again the DVD until just a very short while ago.

The dream was great because I was a competitor in an Ironman triathlon and I was actually winning the race. I started becoming the winner because I overtook the lead runner and I can still visualize that detail to some degree. Some other details I remember, as though I had been talking to someone at some point, is that I was talking about how I was winning the race but I had not even been training. I was left with the sense that I had gone out in my overweight condition of 265 pounds and I had completed the Ironman triathlon swim course of 2.4 miles and then I had completed the Ironman triathlon bicycle course of 112 miles and then there I was on the 26.2 mile running course and I had just overtaken the lead runner and I was winning the race.

I can still visualize the marathon course and it sort of reminds me of the marathon course that I completed in the year 2004 for the Ironman triathlon in Coeur d'Alene Idaho. But not quite. It also reminds me of the turn-around point on the marathon course of the Seattle Marathon that I finished back in 2003. I think it is the evergreen trees.

So anyway, I had reached the top of a hill. I am aware of crushed rock that is minimally the road surface. I am not aware of asphalt, but then it is a dream.

I am standing at that point on top of that hill, that had been climb that I had not been aware of, and I am lost. I don't know where to go from there. I have a map and I can still visualize the details to some degree as I look at the map and I can visualize how I looked at the small map and I can see the lines representing the swim course and the other lines from the other courses but I cannot figure it out. I am going to lose the race because I can't read the map. I was waiting for some other competitors to catch up with me and so I could find out from them where to go from there, and I can visualize one woman from a group of an unknown number and I think I was talking to them. The dream seemed to end there and I never did see that former lead runner again.

Lars Onsager


Lars Onsager

Born: 27 November 1903, Kristiania (now Oslo), Norway

Died: 5 October 1976, Coral Gables, FL, USA

Affiliation at the time of the award: Yale University, New Haven, CT, USA

Prize motivation: "for the discovery of the reciprocal relations bearing his name, which are fundamental for the thermodynamics of irreversible processes"

Field: chemical thermodynamics, physical chemistry

Prize share: 1/1

Work

Thermodynamics is about heat and its conversion into other forms of energy - basically involving statistical descriptions of atomic and molecular movements. Irreversible thermodynamic processes go in only one direction and not in the reverse. Lars Onsager analyzed mathematical equations for various irreversible thermodynamic processes and in 1931 found the connection that led him to formulate equations that came to be known as reciprocal relations. This allowed a complete description of irreversible processes.

(Chief gives in to his feeling about the summit and climbs up the bluff. He finally locates a huge temple with five pillars and five vaults in the ceiling, and a giant eye emblem on the floor.)

CREDITS

41,402 Survivors

ACT One

Algae Planet: Temple of Five

Chief: Our initial radiocarbon dating suggests that the temple's at least 4,000 years old, which lines up with the exodus of the Thirteenth Tribe.

Roslin (over radio): Do you really think you've found the Temple of Five?

Chief: Yeah. I recognize it from the books in my father's study, Madame President. He was a priest, and the Temple of Five was an important part of our faith. Well, his faith anyways.

Roslin, from Adama’s quarters: Could this place be related to the Eye of Jupiter, Chief?

Chief: You got me, Madame President. All I know is the stuff I kinda remember from sneaking into my dad's study when he wasn't looking.

Adama: the Eye of Jupiter? What are we talking about?

Chief: According to the Scriptures, it's a marker that was left behind by the Thirteenth Tribe. It's supposed to point the way to Earth.

Origins




15933.

That's the street address, according to Google Maps, where those thoughts began forming in my mind.

Only a few hours ago, when I was out walking again that street for exercise, did the 15900 on the street sign register in my mind.

I had no idea at the time where that street address would be specifically. Today, I guessed wrong while walking by there, and would have guessed the other side of the street.

Google Maps marks that address as the specific house I was walking by when the thoughts formed in my mind.

I would not have guessed it correctly. Don't know if that is the actual street address for the house.

Guess I won't be publishing today my highly enlightening report, I have been working on most of the day and then other stuff keeps distracting me with other observations, about the Star Trek: Voyager" episode "Nemesis". You say you won't understand it anyway? I DON'T CARE!!!

See, I knew that.

Walking around outside a few hours ago today this is precisely the prescient thoughts I was having in my mind.

For over an hour.

I was walking and I was worried slightly I was going to urinate in my sweatpants (because I drink literally a gallon of distilled water each and every day, which limits the distance I can travel on foot and since I am not going to stop behind some neighborhood homeowner's shrubs) and I got to a certain point and I started to imagine an old woman who offered me chocolate chip cookies and also the use of a restroom, among other treasures.

By the time I got back to my apartment, 59 minutes and unknown seconds later, I had decided that woman was Catherine.

That was several hours ago today.

I had no idea about the production mentioned here. I had no idea until a few minutes ago when I went to check the MGM website for confirmation of a premiere date of a "Stargate: Universe" episode I just watched as I try to get in more than a couple hours on the stationary bike and I stumbled across the new "Stargate" website, disappointed that "Stargate: Origins" is not a major production.

But well, as I have written before, they chewed all the taste out that bubblegum so any major production may be too much to ask for anytime soon.

They also might be waiting for me.

MGM Answers: Stargate Origins and Stargate Command’s ‘All-Access’ Membership

EXCLUSIVE: MGM answers our questions about Stargate's new digital platform.

Darren @GateWorld

AUGUST 31, 2017

MGM today announced the details on Stargate’s new digital media platform: Stargate Command launches September 20, with early registration now open for fans in the U.S. (More on availability in other countries in a moment.)

The service comes with two levels of access. Fans will be able to access some content for free, including behind-the-scenes photos and video from the set of Stargate Origins, a weekly newsletter, plus access to an official fan community. The “All-Access” paid membership (a one-time fee of $20 US) offers more, of course, including access to stream all three Stargate television series (SG-1, Atlantis, and SGU), all three movies, and all of Origins when it is released.

That’s more than 17 seasons and 350 episodes of the long-running franchise

See, I had completely forgotten about that other role she had until just a few minutes ago as I was looking for something else "Stargate" related.

A plaque to commemorate a plague of wacko nutjobs in this country.

There is no greater monument to the natural cowardice of humans than is their organized religions.

Timid little pathetic morons insisting their Imaginary Friend Who Lives In The Clouds will help them as they desperately cling to False Hope.

General WEST
So, you think you've solved in fourteen days what they couldn't solve in two years?

Dr. Daniel Jackson
(surprised)
Two years?

WEST
Any time.

[O'Neil enters. Daniel starts passing around several of his rolled papers. ]

DANIEL
Um, I have some stuff for you to look at. Just, um, pass-pass them down. Um, you'll have to share them, cause I um...
(chuckles nervously)
...Sorry, I—Sorry, I don't have enough of those. But, anyway...

[He sits and starts looking at his own copy, starting to sound more confident.]

DANIEL
Okay, all right, we're obviously looking at a picture of the cover stones. Now, on the outer track, these figures that you would believe to be words to be translated were, in fact...

[He stands again and shuffles his papers, pushing some larger pieces aside and into some people next to him to roll out a star chart.]

DANIEL
—sorry about that—were in fact star constellations. Now these constellations were placed in a unique order forming a map or an address of sorts. Seven points to outline a course to a position.

[Daniel turns to the metal wall behind him, on which a picture of the cover stones has already been taped. He tapes up another paper and begins to draw on it. O'Neil lights a cigarette.]

DANIEL
And uh...to find a destination within any three dimensional space, you need six points to determine the exact location.

Tut Would Have Felt at Home

October 27, 1994 BILL HIGGINS SPECIAL TO THE TIMES

The Scene: Monday's premiere of MGM's "Stargate" at Mann's Chinese with a party at the Palace. The film is a special-effects-filled science-fiction thriller with an ancient Egyptian theme. One writer, well-versed in the reigning buzzwords used to sell scripts, dubbed it " 'Die Hard' in a pyramid."

Who Was There: The film's stars, James Spader and Jaye Davidson, who's best-known for "The Crying Game" (co-star Kurt Russell was in New York for the Letterman show); also on hand were director-writer Roland Emmerich, writer-producer Dean Devlin, executive producer Mario Kassar and 1,200 guests, including James Coburn, Adam Baldwin, Gary Busey, Kim Cattrall, Ed Begley Jr., Lesley Ann Warren, Rick Nicita, Jim Sheridan, and MGM's Frank Mancuso, Gerry Rich and Larry Gleason.

The Film Distilled: Jennifer Tilly said, "James Spader is a kind of a yuppie heartthrob, Kurt Russell is a kind of cowboy heartthrob, and then you have Jaye Davidson, who plays a hermaphrodite, which in itself is a really interesting special effect."

Quoted: Davidson, who said doing "Stargate" was "a lucky break," added, "Why didn't I work for two years after 'The Crying Game'? It's because Hollywood doesn't know what to do with me. I don't look normal. I look like a bit of a freak. It's not as though I'm going to get the roles Keanu Reeves turns down."

The Setting: It was a truly lively party with a large segment of the crowd dancinguntil 1 a.m. Part of the ambience came from muscular extras in ancient Egyptian costume who looked like bodybuilders from the King Tut gym. They wore loincloths that were a strong breeze away from being X-rated.

Chow: Ambrosia's Middle Eastern menu of stuffed grape leaves, hummus and fish skewers was served by staffers wearing turbans and robes a la John the Baptist. One guest called the style "early Tunisian drip-dry."

Fashion Standout: Davidson arrived at the screening in a shimmering, antique Indian sari woven from gold thread. He changed into jeans and T-shirt immediately afterward. "No way was I going to wear it to the party, bump into drunks and get cigarette burns," he said.

Local Wisdom: A film star's ex-wife said, "Being a celebrity is like having an all-access, backstage pass to life in Hollywood."

The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1936

Sir Henry Dale, Otto Loewi


Otto Loewi

Born: 3 June 1873, Frankfurt-on-the-Main, Germany

Died: 25 December 1961, New York, NY, USA

Affiliation at the time of the award: Graz University, Graz, Austria

Prize motivation: "for their discoveries relating to chemical transmission of nerve impulses"

Field: neurophysiology

Prize share: 1/2

Work

At the beginning of the 20th century, it was known that the nervous system's signals are conveyed with the help of electrical impulses. However, it was unclear whether the signals were also conveyed by chemical substances. In 1921 Otto Loewi stimulated the heart of a frog with electrical impulses and had it pump a small amount of nutrient solution. When the fluid was transferred to another heart, it operated in a similar way. This provided proof that chemical substances convey nerve signals to organs. Otto Loewi verified the role of other substances, including acetylcholine, in this context.

Stargate: The Movie (1994)

(from internet transcript)

KASUF
Son, we should not have helped the strangers.

[Skaara looks back, sadly.]

EXT—ALIEN PYRAMID, NIGHT

INT—SARCOPHAGUS CHAMBER, RA'S SHIP

[Daniel takes a large gulp of air and sits up, pulling some sheer material off his face. He looks around, gulping breaths while getting his bearings. He then looks at his side where the staff blast struck him. The material is still torn, but his body is completely healed, not even leaving a scar. He steps out of the sarcophagus watching it close itself.]

[Behind him, a boy approaches, carrying a cat. He laughs at Daniel. { or: he giggles about Daniel. Perhaps the servants repaired Daniel without Ra's knowledge and they are pleased to learn that Ra is not the "God" he claims to be } When Daniel turns, he moves away. Daniel follows him.]

INT—THRONE ROOM, RA'S SHIP

[The boy leaves the cat on the throne and runs away. Daniel walks down the staircase behind the throne, stopping and petting the cat. He looks around for the boy, then follows him.]

INT—BATHING ROOM, RA'S SHIP

[Ra steps out of his tub, being dried and clothed by servants. Daniel enters the room, stepping through several curtains. Ra turns in profile, smiling before walking away without acknowledging Daniel.]

INT—BED CHAMBER, RA'S SHIP

[They move into another area, the servants continuing to layer Ra with more clothing and jewelry.]

DANIEL
I was dead?

[Ra looks directly at him at this point.]

RA
That is why I chose your race...your bodies...so easy to repair. You have advanced much—harnessed the power of the atom.

[Daniel approaches, noticing the bomb and several of his books, opened and strewn about.]

DANIEL
What are you going to do?

RA
You should not have reopened the gate.
