Employment and Unemployed for Life

There is almost full employment, and the sad thing is that there are so many not working in the UK that it is clear that some people will never work again unless some drastic change happens. Unemployment is one thing, but we also have those who are on Work Experience or doing Training or Students. None of these are counted as unemployed. America is in no better place, both countries will suffer more when we finally perfect and get automation up and running.

 

13/06/2018

There were 727,000 job vacancies in the services sectors for March to May 2018, accounting for 88.9% of all vacancies. Looking at services in more detail, the sectors with the largest number of job vacancies were wholesaling, retailing and repair of motor vehicles (133,000) and human health and social work (130,000).

There were 2.7 job vacancies per 100 filled employee jobs for March to May 2018. The industrial sector showing the largest vacancy rate was accommodation and food service activities (4.0 vacancies per 100 filled employee jobs). The industrial sectors showing the smallest vacancy rates were construction, and public administration and defence (both 1.6 vacancies per 100 filled employee jobs).

There were 818,000 job vacancies for March to May 2018, little changed compared with December 2017 to February 2018 but 33,000 more than for a year earlier.

Coincidence or Conspiracy?

I have learned over 47 years that there is a 90% chance that there is no such thing as Coincidence while every day someone, somewhere conspires something, and while most of these acts are nefarious in nature, some are not. Furthermore sometimes accidents happen, and things evolve, plans as an example. But in Africa something has happened which screams Conspiracy, all in the name of (at the very least) greed, and at worst a Global New World Order type Conspiracy. I am referring to in African invasion of the Fall ArmyWorms, or to give them the correct title the larva (Caterpillar) of Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E. Smith). This happened about two years ago, but we have only just found out about it, Why?

The First I heard about it was Yesterday (7th May 2018) on MSN, a report by Adrian Blomfield, a reporter from the Telegraph Newspaper. At first I dismissed it as scaremongering, as is often the case with today’s newspapers in the UK, there is always a killer this or a killer that happening in the UK almost every week. But I read it and I was disturbed, to my core, which does not happen very often. But what was reported https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/0/deadly-armyworm-could-march-britain-devastating-african-crops/ was not the usual bluster we are use to, and the more I read the more I understood that what was happening, and I was waiting for the punch-line, which I got at the 6th paragraph from the end of the report, and while Adrian, nor anyone in the report said the name I know that one company stands to make a lot of money from this disaster, which could even destroy Europe’s and Asia’s Main crop.

New World Order and the End of the World as we know it.

It had to happen, it has been heading this way since the ’50’s, and now it is almost here, and there is bugger all we can do about it, except fight against it, but it will be a massive uphill battle (think of Everest uphill), against impossible odds. Some of us know about it, some protest, some give public opinion, some try to change it, these Market Square Heroes. And all of these people have files and targets on them, but they still keep telling the world what is going on, and branded nutjobs who believe in Conspiracy Theories, but is it a Theory when it is real and really happening. It is like a massive world wide jigsaw puzzle and the pieces are really falling into place.

Technology is now to such a point that most of us are now expendable, and surplus to requirements, especially in the US and UK, both of which are reported as saying that they are at full employment (99%+), and there are too few jobs for those who want to work but who do not have a job (like me), regardless of how many interviews they get, jobs applied for, courses done, skills gained, they are still unemployed. The US has a population of 325.7 million as of 2017 and the UK is 65.64 million as of 2016, and in a maximum of 20 years there will be 30% of the US population unemployed and 10 million in the UK. Why? Because of jobs being upgraded to automation, that is why. 10 million people in the UK surplus to requirements, and thus a drain on the national economy and almost (if my Maths is right) 100 million unemployed in the US. What to do with all these people? These drain on the local Governments, and these are just two countries, in the West, what about the rest of the world?

There is a Global population of about 8 billion people, and in 20 years there will be 9 billion people. Now to be fair this planet can not sustain the current population, ideally half that, but the more people there are the more people there will be in 5, 10, 20 years, and soon we will hit 10 billion people. But everything it heading for 20 years time, all figures are heading in that direction, 20 years and then everything will be in place.

Syteria Rant-O-Bot Rock and Roll

OK, as the Arrows once sang (and many others have covered) I love Rock and Roll. This should not be in any doubt to anyone who reads my posts, or anyone who knows me at all. But I recently brought an album from a new band from Yorkshire, UK. Syteria, and the album, their first, is Rant-O-Bot. I do not often review albums, but in this case I will.

 

Right, do you guys want my honest opition of this album? Are you sure, and I mean really, really sure, because most people really do not like it when I give my very honest opition regarding their music. I mean yes please, tell us what you think, and then they all get upset when I tell them what I think is wrong with the Album, and to get to know a band, especally one I have not heard before is a big risk for me, even if someone has released it from a band I know and at least like, so I spend money and I will listern to it over and over again, regardless of how painful to my ears it may be.

Several bands I have fallen foul of are Saxon and Great White and also Bruce Dickinson’s solo and Roger Taylor’s solo projects, so you can see I do take music very seriously. By now you are more than likely saying something along the lines of “Don’t he go on” or “Get on with it”. To give an album due attention I will play it at least 6 times, but usually 12 times before I really decide if I like it or not, Great White I managed 2 times, and Taylor only once.

Does the “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame” belong with Rock and Roll History?

Bill Haley & His Comets recorded “Rock Around the Clock”. Although only a minor hit when first released, when used in the opening sequence of the movie Blackboard Jungle a year later, it set the rock and roll boom in motion. The song became one of the biggest hits in history, and frenzied teens flocked to see Haley and the Comets perform it, causing riots in some cities. “Rock Around the Clock” was a breakthrough for both the group and for all of rock and roll music. If everything that came before laid the groundwork, “Rock Around the Clock” introduced the music to a global audience.

This was the first Rock and Roll song, and many have come since, some good, some bad and a lot important and influential to bands who would come later and fans like myself. But in reality where does the “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame” really fit in? Is it about the fans, the music, the influence, or is it just about the amount of money the companies make? Is it worth anything when pop stars get a place while some of the most influential bands of the 60’s to 80’s are always overlooked.

3am. Monday Morning

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Granted this was written a few weeks ago, and the picture was taken at the same time of me writing it, but nothing has changed, and just the last one I have written, until the next one.

Gods damn it, 3am on another bloody Monday,

Body is alive, mind is awake

All together screaming Rack and Ruin

Permanent damage no help coming

inside or outside, ’tis all but the same

Another cigarette, another cup of tea

washing down another fist full of pills

One may ask, but never wait

why the hell I am awake

Should I try, why even bother

a few hours sleep to ease my brain

1 in 100 I will sleep through

pain racked rest the best I can do

Fresh sheets and relaxing bath

really does not matter at all

Ridicule or unconcerned

is the lesson I have learned.
