Plagiarism, disguise for stealing?

Plagiarism; The practice of taking someone else’s work or ideas and passing them off as one’s own.

Music plagiarism: surpassing a specific number of bars in a new composition or using musical pieces that are not yours, have not been bough,  have not the authorization of the  author to use it.

Video/Photo Plagiarism: using images that are not yours, have not been bough,  have not the authorization of the author who owns the rights (social media, the new plague…)

Science Plagiarism: probably the worst of all, too much used today for my taste.

Plagiarism on speeches.                                                                                           Very common these days, first I’d had to ask why public figures do not write their own speeches, the answer is obvious, they are not capable of. Second, are they not ashamed having someone talking about his/her points of view on any subject, feelings, political plans, and just read a teleprompter? The answer is NO, but they are who will lead nations into its future.

Man can surpass any limits on what can be considered ethical, honest, professional, getting easily into hate, hipocrissy, racism, narcissism, abuse of power,  extreme ego, plutocracy, freak control over anything…… I even listened recently to someone talking about the Science of Plagiarism. enough for me, stupidity is forever.

 

Is something free or 100% feasible?

The news bring all the time to our attention to what journalists  interpret on  Science related topics because they make some news from time to time., mostly medical,  they do it with full affirmations on total cure, 100% effective, totally free and so on.                            Since the discovery of the first Newton’s Law and the later and wider concept that includes it all: “Law of Conservation of Energy” for the transformations occurring in this world, natural or man made, we, people who studied some sort of Science, know pretty well that there is nothing free, nothing applies for a 100% anywhere, anytime on the real world. Everything has a price in terms of energy consumption, energy lost as heat or increasing Entropy, the most perfect transformation is done by human beings, that converts 35-40% of the energy ingested by food into vital processes of life, the rest to keep the body working at 37 Celsius for such purposes. So ANY affirmation that calls for 100% of anything in any aspect of life, transformations, production, even in love, is bullshit, nothing is free, everything has a price of some sort. This is called an Energy Balance, on any process, with the most unthinkable parameters involved.   Any title you read about these matter shows at least ignorance of the journalists, politicians or entrepreneurs, few interested scientists and they are swallowed by the same masses who eat willingly what media, advertising and the culture of celebrities give them everyday, by the way these people elect presidents and prime ministers…..Be responsible, do not talk or spread what you do not know, do not turn yourself into  an accomplice of deceiving, to say the less. I am  aware it is almost impossible due to human nature but at least we should  try!

Same shit, different flies….

I am a newbie  In Australian politics but  I am about to see the 6th Prime Minister in 6 years, that does not sound good anywhere. In this Parliamentary Democracy you do not vote for a Prime Minister, the Party decides who is he going to be. A supposed party leader and leadership can change within a year if the “party” considers the present  one will not lead them to a new winning election. In merely 3 years of government, the first one is typically devoted to clean the house mess left by the previous one, the second year trying to amend tand propose new ways of action and the third year is devoted on how to win again.

I am told that I vote for a candidate in my electoral area, an MP (house of representatives, 150 in total), the most MPs for a party determines who the PM will be and you need 76/100, under that you have a hung parliament, meaning deadlock  followed by  alliances with opposition minority parties, a win win for them, not for the Country. The worst is that I really do not cast a vote for the  candidate I consider suitable, I am obliged to put numbers or preferences  (1 to 6 or 1 to12), so I have to give “points” not only to my candidate but to the others, like in a beauty contest, a system well designed to keep in the game the rubbish of Australian politics, never going to happen for me. I do not want to bring in here the names and activities proposed by some minority parties  because I feel ashamed as an Australian for that, really ashamed, do not confuse liberty with license.

So…..in our own way the last decade of australian leadership goes from one peak of crisis to another, pleasing groups of “voters”, a growing unemployment, public health where you can wait years to be seen if it is not a “deadly situation”, among other substancial issues. Politicians do not have a Nation plan for the future, they are just grabbing $ from everywhere to cover the immense debts acquired by arrogant and ignorant representatives that are the best paid in the world. If this sounds familiar to anyone who has lived in a 3rd world country for as long as I had….yes same shit, different flies. The worst mankind has done is to let “politicians” (yes, lowercase) rule their countries and ruin their lives.
