G8x8 from 2008 to 2017

One major change in composition of the G8x8 from 2008 to 2017 is the new appearance of India↑ to country rank 7, and the fall of Russia↓ from rank 8 off of the chess board. Japan↓ and China↑ switched positions 2 and 3, and the UK↑ surpassed France↓ for rank 5 with France dropping to rank 6. Italy↓ dropped from rank 7 to 8. Only the USA maintained their position at rank 1, and Germany at rank 4.

G8x8 of 2008

There are also some rank changes within countries. Here is a summary of developments for each country:

  1. USA: Texas↑ and New York↓ switched postions 2 and 3; Ohio↑ and New Jersey↓ switched positions 7 and 8.
  2. China: Shandong↓ and Jiangsu↑ switched positions 2 and 3; Hebei↓ dropped from rank 6 to 7; Sichuan↑ newly appeared in the top 8 at rank 6; Hunan↑ appeared at rank 8; Shanghai↓ and Liaoning↓ dropped out of the top eight.
  3. Japan: Osaka↑ rose from rank 4 to 2; Kanagawa↓ dropped from 2 to 4.
  4. Germany: Berlin↑ and Sachsen↓ switched ranks 7 and 8.
  5. UK: No change within the country.
  6. France: In 2016, names and territories were changed, which make the 2008 and 2017 chess boards incompatible.
  7. India: New on the chess board.
  8. Italy: No change within the country.

In 2008, we also compared GDP growth rates between territories. Number one growth territory was Liaoning province of China with a growth rate of 13.1 percent. The fact that this most promising province of 2008 later fell off the chess board convinced us to discontinue the publication of short-lived growth indicators.

Panjin Deans Visit Swiss VET Institute

A group of deans of the Panjin Vocational and Technical College (PVTC) under its vice principal Zhang Hongfu visited the Swiss Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (SFIVET) in Zollikofen near Bern on 7 July 2017. The event was part of a Sino-German Project on Dual Vocational Education in Panjin. Project Team Leader Zhang Yaowen also joined the visit at SFIVET.

The delegation was received by Eric Swars, Head of International Relations. He provided insights into the dual VET system of Switzerland and its differences to the German dual system, into the education of TVET teachers and masters, and into TVET research and vocational development, tasks his institution is in charge of. In May 2017, SFIVET already established a partnership with the China Education Association for International Exchange (CEAIE).

Panjin is a chemical and petroleum industry city in Northeast China. The Chinese government is encouraging the entire region to modify its economy. Panjin was selected by the National Development and Reform Commission as a pilot city for the introduction of a dual VET system similar to the German and Swiss systems. PVTC is at the core of the pilot project, initially focusing on the vocations of Chemical Technician, Mechatronics Fitter, and Geriatric Nurse.

Panjin is located in the Chinese province of Liaoning, which was a G8x8 province in 2008 but was ranking only 10th among Chinese provinces in 2015 GDP.

The Density of God

Within the universe’s four recognizable dimensions, God is ever present. God’s density is approximately equivalent to the density of the universe, like a person’s density is approximately equivalent to the density of his or her environment.

God is in all things, alive and not alive. Its distribution among things, however, is independent of the density of things. In things whose density is higher than the average density of the universe, the presence of God in relation to the density of those things is usually relatively small.

God is conscious. It is able to control Its density and therefore Its presence in things. If God increases Its density in individual things, Its density in all other things will decrease proportionally. God only increases Its density in individual things if It recognizes a good reason to do so.

To date, God has twice recognized good reasons to significantly increase Its density on the planet earth: to turn matter to living matter, and to turn life to thinking life.

God’s normal density on the planet earth is sufficient to influence events which would otherwise be controled by the planetary laws of nature only. However, if God recognizes reasons to increase Its density elsewhere in the universe, It’s density on the planet earth is smaller and Its influence on events is smaller than usual.

God is good. During Its normal density in things, positive and negative events are in balance. If God increases Its density locally, positive events dominate, but they are being compensated by negative events elsewhere in the universe, because God’s density has been smaller there.

God’s normal density in a person is not higher than elsewhere. Persons, however, have the potential to use their conscience to communicate with the aspect of God within themselves and to ask God to locally increase Its density. To reach this goal, a person must try to attract God’s interest. If a person has attracted God’s interest, a divine inspiration may reach him or her. If God’s interest continues for an extended period, a personal good angel may develop.

God is forced to neglect other parts of the universe while increasing Its density in favor of a person. For that reason, persons should try to attract God’s interest as little as possible, and only if there is an important reason. Persons who ask for God’s help too often have more difficulty attracting Its interest when truly needed. God’s interest is more easily attracted by praying for others than by praying for oneself.

Ayurvedic medicine ginger

In Vedic times, as human civilization has started a firestorm, Vedic yogis and saints have done a lot of research and study about existing of medicinal elements in plants. In addition, they have observed the different plants and their different internal chemical composition of the characteristics and quality differences. Later, these observations and studies have been written down in the Vedic scriptures, and is used to treat the disease.

According to Ayurveda, there are three types of flame elements. They are physical fire, the internal fire, external fire. Physical fire stays in three places: the first place is the ‘Brahma Randhra’, which is described by the Vedic scriptures skull on top of the central nervous system, brain and spinal cord as the end, second place is the mouth, third place is in the anus. Internal fire stays in the other three places: the stomach, spleen and intestines. External fire live in medicinal plants, kitchen and burning sacred place, in Sanskrit is often called Yagya. Yagya is done when a devout priest burn wood, oil and other elements in prayer. Among the 9 fire, Ginger is part of an external fire. If the element of fire in our body slows down or weakened, ginger and it’s preparations are used to ignite the inside fire to prevent us from the disease manifestations which caused by weakening of energy in our body.
