Qualifications and tickets

I have spoken about tickets being revoked by the N.S.W government before. Well I have heard of it happening again!  This is how the story goes, An electrical ticket was obtained from the fair trading department to work as a licensed electrician. The appropriate qualifications were produced and the license was issued. Several years went past and on the last job the customer inquired about the ticket at the fair trading with the numbers supplied by the electrician. Turns out that the ticket was a forgery given by one of the fair tradings employees doing some moonlighting. The electrician again paid his fees and was given a legitimate ticket and all was well for three weeks when the ticket was cancelled because the electrician was deemed to be a person of dubious character and was not deemed fit to have a license and again the ticket was cancelled. Fed up with all the crap the electrician went to Canberra in the  A.C.T  and obtained a ticket there. The fair trading having spent heaps of money had to stop the electrician and told him that they didn't recognize the A.C.T license. During his time working with the forgery license he was never charged with doing a bad job or cutting corners, the electrician is now out of work. So here it is the trainers of Australian technical and further education (TAFE) and the licensing authorities don't recognize each others qualifications. How obserd is that.
 Not true then that is one heck of a story....

drug sub

Sorry for the bad quality as it was getting dark. The wheel is from the rubbish tip and I have to make something to hold it to the steering shaft. The controls are set up on the dash and cables have to be ordered to the correct length.

Energy saving light bulbs are falsely marketed! Power = Volts * Current or volts x amps.
Nelson have a compact fluro light Australian approval CA V04116 ..Now taking the data from the light bulb DCELS15bccw6p - 15w 220 -240-50hz 87mA

Now if you take there figures that are written on the 15watt bulb, the true power used is 20.8 watts not 15watts as stated
therefore from ohms law Power drawn form supply = 240 x 87mA = 20.88watts. All this is controlled by the Fair Trading department and it shows that the department gets it wrong on many occasions.
You can see there is a problem as they state there bulb uses Watts 15 watts of power but if you work it out from the values printed on the bulb it works out to be 20.88watts, I guess it takes Watt or Eddison  to work this out cause the Fair Trading Department can't.

locus control

Locus control can be done with ten meter high bright green fences made from shade cloth. When the swarms hit the fence, insect spray is then immediately sprayed on the little critters as they try to eat the cloth. The cloth would have to be fastened to the ground to stop them going under the cloth. There it is for free to use. This would be used to protect crops. This fence would have to be a quick erect fence to hit the swarms on flat ground where the fences could be erected in minutes by a crew of men specially trained to do the job like a racing car pit crew.  The cloth would have to be green of a special colour to attract the locus in flight.

defective buildings

I have sent an email to myself about two building one in Wollongong and the other in Sydney.They both are high rise buildings and have rhythmic swaying in the floors which to my mind seems excessive.
My old mate told me of a similar problem and the harmonic vibration was tracked to a small compressor in the basement of the building. The end result would have been a collapse of the building.
I know I complain a lot so that is why I have not named them also as my son is in the legal business he advises against me taking this action. We will wait and see.
