"Fire is it alive?"

There is a great deal of debate as to whether or not "FIRE" is a living thing!

The very first thing one must do when describing and/or explaining something and/or the origin of something, is understanding of the context for which the description is being provided.

For instance, let's ask the question can a car run? The scientific answer would be no it cannot for it has no legs, and/or feet. However, the logical and articulate answer is, yes, a car can run, can be ran, can run out of gas, can run over someone, and so forth.

So back to the question, fire, is it alive? Most have very limited and narrow thinking abilities, for they believe, they think, that something has to have "cells" in order to be classified as living. That simply isn't so, there are many things that we have yet to discover, many forms of life that we are unaware of. Fire needs oxygen in order to exist, at least according to the laws of physics associated with our realm of the universe. It is said without oxygen fire dies, so, fire is often given characteristics of living capacity. Fire breaths, fire eats, fire consumes, and the notion that fire does not give off waste, as in waste product as some scientists have suggested is unfounded.

Fire leaves debris, and everyone knows that debris is waste, fire leaves ashes, gives off gases, and other pollutants which is another word for waste. You don't have to be a chemist and/or a biologist to understand that as humans we have a very narrow view of things. It is politically incorrect to associate life what something that is intangible, but protons, neutrons, electrons are all living entities. Some have said that fire does not utilize energy in order to exist, preposterous, fire can create wind, cyclones, fire can move, fire can engulf, fire can destroy; each of the aforementioned adjectives describes something associated with energy, and each of the aforementioned when associated with fire is reliant upon fire in order to exist. Again most people do not consider the question "IS FIRE ALIVE?", to be of any import, but it does go to the very question as to what is life? Who gets to determine what life is? Can life exist in a different form then we have seen through scientific research and or study?

So, we are back to our original question "FIRE, IS IT ALIVE?", You be the judge of that!


Article 1 section 10 of the U.S. Constitution specifically states that a State is not allowed to pass any law that “impairs the obligation of contracts”. This is known as the "Right to Contract Clause". People enter contracts daily, whether it’s a handshake, verbal promise, written agreement or adhesion. People are obligated to fulfill all contracts that they have entered. Blacks Law 4th edition defines a contract as a promissory agreement between two or more persons that creates, modifies, or destroys a legal relation.

If an issue arises one can find him or herself being summoned to court for a disagreement or nonperformance of a contract. Every country is founded upon a contract, a meeting of the minds, and agreement between one and more parties. In fact the Constitution is a contract whereby the people agree to permit and/or allow government to exercise certain authorities over them. Why in 1933 the government entered into a contract with the people and it was called "THE NEW DEAL". the 13th amendment is a prohibition against involuntary contracts, the 13th amendment is one of the amendments which prohibits anyone from interfering with the right of a person to contract.

Let’s evaluate some of the essential components of a contract 

(1) Competence: all parties must be able to understand the requirements of what has been drafted in the contract. Also, all parties should be over the age of legal age, and neither should be mentally impaired. known this is despite the fact that in certain laws they have stated that "a minor may enter into a contract the same as an adult" see: the age of majority act

(2) Consideration: adds value to a contract. Each party should bring something of value to a contract such as monies, labor, currencies, deposit or pledge, time or energy, this is known as value and consideration. Without these essential elements a contract may be unenforceable or considered a gift, requiring no obligation of fulfillment.

(3) Legal Purpose: a contract must be for a legal purpose. Contracts cannot be for something illegal, fraudulent or immoral. All contracts must be able to be enforced by a Court, or other entity having authority.

(4) Offer and Acceptance, and Mutual Agreement: a person cannot be coerced or forced into signing a contract, it must be signed under their own free will, it must be voluntary.

A few tips to remember

Here’s a few tips to remember when entering into a contract. Always take your time to read the complete contract, and to note your objections on the contract if necessary. Use a legal/law dictionary to decipher unknown terminology, and/or the man that the contract be written in a language that you speak and not in a foreign tongue.

Many have found it best that there’s a minimal of two autographs plus a witness, preferably a lawyer or a notary public, so as to protect their interests and the interests of the other party. others have sought to “Authenticate” a contract, however, such is not necessary as a notary seal, witness signatures, and an original copy stands true in law.

Next in the Recorded Document series;

This discussion today is about the eRecording system and the errors that may be found in documents contained within the land records in your County Recorder’s Office. 
Most real estate documents filed within the county Recorder’s office are public records and are done electronically. For centuries, real estate documents, such as deeds and mortgage documents could only be filed in paper (8½ x 14) form, containing original physical signatures and notary stamps within county recording offices. Beginning in 1999, the barriers were removed to legalize eRecording. Since gaining official credibility, eRecording has expanded to more than 1,000 counties and is being embraced each day by more and more localities. A little more than a decade ago it was only available in just a handful of U.S. jurisdictions, but today it’s the preferred method of filing.
Separate from eFiling, the term “eRecording” applies to the entire process of electronic origination, receipt, processing and safekeeping of land records in accordance with local, state and federal law. eRecording establishes a direct electronic link between submitters of real estate documents and county offices, enabling documents to be digitally created, signed, transmitted, recorded, indexed, archived and returned by removing, the paper filing, an antiquated, labor-intensive process and bringing contemporary automation, precision and security.
With the eRecording process, digital documents are prepared using standardized data, embedded digital and digitized signatures and notaries. The legitimacy of eRecording has been upheld by a number of federal and state acts, including:

• UETA—Uniform Electronic Transactions Act
• ESIGN—Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act
• URPERA—Uniform Real Property Electronic Recording Act
• RULONA—Revised Uniform Law on Notarial Acts
Documents that were originated on paper, such as loan closing documents, are scanned, placed in their proper recording order and can be viewed and printed on (8½ x 11) which hides the embedded digital and digitized signature contained within their system.

Since the inception of the eRecording system, when errors are discovered, it can present many problems and affect real estate titles contained within the land records. Sometime when discrepancies are discovered, it can be beneficial of the homeowner, the applicant; but, with the e-Recording, if a flaw is discovered, the documents can be electronically manipulated, changed and/or redacted, to depict no flaws and perfect a real estate’s title to the detriment of the homeowner and the public, monitoring is not good enough, since this is a public record, and manipulation of public records can never be lawful in a free society, or can it?

"Do you know whats in your e-lectronic record?"


Vorombe titan, the real BIG BIRD?

This Bird was discovered this Elephant Bird, that was a huge fliightless bird, and it lived until about 1000 B.C.

And you thought the character big bird was just a made up figure, go figure...

Vorombe titan (meaning 'big bird' in Malagasy and Greek), has taken the title reaching weights of up to 800 kg and three meters tall, with the research also discovering unexpected diversity in these Madagascan creatures.

...the largest birds known to man...! 

Vorombe titan was vegetarian, and was native to Madagascar, which is interesting, that the largest birds known to man were native to Madagascar "Acuna Matata", if you know what I mean?

"from 300 to 1,700 pounds..."

There are several other elephant birds, but the Vorombe, was the largest of the elephant birds, weighing anywhere from 300 to 1,700 pounds, it is not clear as to the stride and/or the migratory habits of this creature, but it sure would've been interesting to have seen such a creature in our day. And just to think the largest bird we get the view if we ever have the pleasure is an ostrich, usually in caged but majestic nonetheless....

Sensationalism is a type of editorial bias in mass media in which events and topics in news stories and pieces are overhyped to present biased impressions on events, which may cause a manipulation to the truth of a story. have you found yourself being the victim to this type of advertisement, yes that's correct advertisement, they're looking for your viewership, because the more ratings they have the more monies they were a can.

Then we have what's known as the Yellow-Journalism, you might ask what is yellow journalism? YELLOW-JOURNALISM is basically one news or editorial companies cut corners and just put out no stories just to be putting out a new story without doing any investigative journalism and/or research. Here at SATCOMM, it is not our aim to provide yellow journalism, and/or sensationalism, were not looking for advertisement revenue, and/or visitor-ship, as we stated from the very beginning our aim and our goal is to cause, and/or to bring about conversation, imagination, inspiration and or enlightenment.

So the next time you're watching TV and you hear that catchy jingle from McDonald's, just remember when you go to a McDonald's it is as a direct result of that commercial that you heard in the background whether or not you convince yourself it is not, the advertisers know that it is. Or the next time you see one of those so-called "FEEL-GOOD STORY", please note that that so-called story is advertisement as well.

The Federal Communications Commission (the “FCC” or the “Commission”), the federal agency directed by Congress to regulate broadcasting. It provides a brief overview of the FCC’s regulation of broadcast radio and television licensees, describing how the FCC authorizes broadcast stations, the various rules relating to broadcast programming and operations with which stations must comply, and the essential obligation of licensees that their stations serve their local communities. They also outlines how you can become involved in assessing whether your local stations are complying with the FCC’s rules and meeting these service obligations, and what you can do if you believe that they are not.

In exchange for obtaining a valuable license to operate a broadcast station using the public airwaves, each radio and television licensee is required by law to operate its station in the “public interest, convenience and necessity.” This means that it must air programming that is responsive to the needs and problems of its local community of license.

Recent Extensions of Control Over Adversiting

Within the last five years there has been a noticeable trend toward more extensive governmental regulation of advertising, reflecting an effort both to raise the plane of business competition and to protect the public against deception. Since 1933, existing laws giving federal and state governments general power to prohibit false and misleading advertising have been supplemented by legislation imposing special controls over the advertising of security issues and alcoholic beverages. Foods, drugs, and cosmetics likewise are to be singled out for special regulation—by the Federal Trade Commission—under the terms of a bill sponsored by Senator Wheeler (D., Mont.) and Representative Lea (D., Calif.), the conference report on which now awaits approval by the Senate. The Wheeler-Lea bill provides also for the strengthening of the F. T. C.'s powers over false and misleading advertising in general.

Increase in F. T. C.'s Powers Under Wheeler-Lea Bill
As originally offered in the Senate in 1936, the Wheeler-Lea bill was designed principally to broaden the Federal Trade Commission's power over false and misleading advertising and to expedite the Commission's procedure. Under the law by which it was established in 1914, the F. T. C. has general authority to prohibit false or misleading advertisements as “unfair methods of competition in commerce.” The Wheeler-Lea bill would extend this grant of power by authorizing the Commission to prevent “unfair or deceptive acts or practices in commerce.” This provision is intended to overcome the effect of a decision handed down by the Supreme Court, in the case of F. T. C. v. Raladam Company, in 1931.

In the Raladam case, the Court refused to uphold a Commission order directing the manufacturer of a preparation known as “Marmola” to cease advertising his product as an “obesity cure” unless the advertisements included the statement that the product should not be used except under medical direction. While agreeing that the Commission's findings warranted the conclusion that the preparation could not safely be used except under medical direction, the Court held that there was no evidence of injury to any competitor and that the advertising did not therefore constitute “an unfair method of competition.”

The language of the Wheeler-Lea bill would enable the Commission to prohibit false or misleading advertising whenever it believed such a prohibition to be in the public interest and would obviate the necessity for proving the existence of competition. Since competition exists in nearly all of the cases in which action is taken by the Commission, the new provision will not greatly extend the F. T. C.'s jurisdiction, but it will serve to expedite proceedings against advertisers.

  • The Wheeler-Lea bill contains a number of other provisions designed to strengthen the F. T. C.'s enforcement powers over false advertising. One of these would fix a maximum penalty of $5,000 for each violation of a cease and desist order issued by the Commission. At present, there is no penalty for such a violation until the Commission obtains an enforcement decree in the courts. A second provision would make cease and desist orders final and enforceable 60 days after issuance, if no petition for court review is filed within that time by the advertiser against whom the order is directed. At present, the Commissions' orders are subject to extensions at the discretion of the courts.
  • By bringing this information to your attention it is our hope that you will be better informed, and realize that the advertisers understand exactly what images can do to a person, which is why their advertisement usually last 15 to 30 seconds, because they realize the type of impression it leads on your mind. That little jingle that you get to hear all day, why do they have those little jingles in their advertisement? Because they are aware that even if a person is watching a television program, that they usually get up from the television set during commercials, but they leave the volume on, they know that the person is still using one of their other senses and that is hearing, and so they appeal to your hearing sence. That's all advertisement is, a way for them to access your subconscious mind, which in most cases controls your conscious actions.
  • So here's an experiment you can do on yourself, make it a point to not listen to a single commercial and/or look at a single commercial for a full month, and then take a look at your accounting for that month and how much money you would have saved as a result of this experiment. This would include on line viewing as well, and the real way to make sure this experiment works, is that you have to, if you do hear a commercial, or see a commercial, you have to write down the name of the product and the company that advertised the commercial and you must purposely and intentionally stay away from that product for the entire month.
  • The mind is a very powerful tool, and advertisers know this, which is why psychology is involved. So the next time you see that commercial, or hear that jingle, will you be motivated to go out and spend, spend, spend? They certainly hope so.
