3. Brainpower tip
Back in the mid-1990s, I was
hired as the plant engineer for a medium-sized operation with severe downtime
problems. Over the year preceding my arrival, the plant's main line had been
down for more than 24 hours three times.
My predecessor was a pretty
smart guy, but he could not get a handle on this. I made a point of talking with
him to see what he had done. All of his solutions focused on what to do after
the technician arrived. But the real problem was the delay between when the line
went down and when maintenance found out about it.
Due to the downtime problem,
the operations supervisors pushed the operators relentlessly in hopes of making
up lost production. When the line went down, the operators saw this as a welcome
break. They would just wait for someone to give them something else to do.
Production supervisors would
eventually notice that parts weren't coming off the line, and they'd fill out a
paper Work Order form and drop it off on a desk or other place in the nearest
maintenance office. At a staff meeting, one of the supervisors working for me
said the only reason anybody would do that instead of personally walking someone
from maintenance to the machine was to CYA while not doing his job. Upon hearing
this, the plant manager said he would go with that and fire anyone who continued
to do things that way. Please note that only maintenance planners can actually
issue Work Orders, so this whole process was pointless anyhow.
My solution to the downtime
Designate one person on
maintenance in that area of the plant as the crew leader. This person was
issued a radio. This person would be the first responder to any trouble
calls. Single point of contact and coordination.
Provide a radio and
charging station to the supervisor's desk for that line.
Personally visit the line
twice a day, having the maintenance supervisor for that line also do that.
Chart the actual downtime,
actual notification to maintenance, and arrival of a maintenance tech.
We got a big reduction in
downtime right away, but still an hour could go by before maintenance
discovered the problem. And we discovered it not because anyone told us but
because several of us were visiting that line daily.
At a first staff meeting,
production again tried to blame maintenance for the shortfall in production. I
pulled out my charts, showing that a qualified technician averaged less than 45
seconds to actually get there once notified (always by someone else in
maintenance) and less than 25 minutes to restore operation. The other downtime
was all due to production supervisors not using the radio we gave them.
My predecessor had focused on
the wrong problem. I focused on the main factor. But as I said, my predecessor
was pretty smart. So I have to give him some credit for the improvements in the
area he did address, thus that 25 minute average instead of maybe a 35 minute
one. However, the real cause of the hours of lost production was the lack of
The lesson here? Truly
leverage your brainpower by applying it in the right place. Going from 28 hours
to 45 seconds is a remarkable improvement. Don't count on other people to do
their jobs; quite often they prefer to remain clueless. Take the bull by the
horns, and don't take any bull from anybody!
4. Finance tip
Selective heating and cooling saves you money. How so, and how do you do it?|
I like my bedroom cool and my
bathrooms warm. My office and my storage areas have different heating and
cooling parameters, too. Yet, there's one thermostat in the whole house. What to
First, take a look at your cold air return intakes. In many homes, these are
actually a mix of warm air returns (up high) and cold air returns (near floor).
I added an intake to the top or bottom wherever one existed, to get a complete
set (this is easy to do). Then I replaced the standard grill with an operational
louver grill. In the summer, the cold air returns are closed and the warm air
returns are open. Vice versa in the winter.
Next, determine which rooms will get the conditioned air as a priority. Open
their vents completely. For the other rooms, close the vents almost completely
(leave some opening, to get the necessary minimum of air circulation). Close or
partially close doors as appropriate.
In the winter, I can open a bathroom door to take a comfortable shower in air
that is ten degrees warmer than in the master bedroom or in the living room. In
the cooler areas, I stay comfortable by dressing more warmly (a feat I have not
even attempted to do while taking a shower).
By controlling vents, registers, dampers, doors, etc. to divide areas of the
house into thermal zones, you can dial back your air conditioner in the summer
and heater in the winter to save money without sacrificing comfort.
5. Security tip
|The Institute of Reprobates and Sociopaths does not, as
many people naively think, adhere to laws or rules. Among their many crimes,
they routinely violate such basic civil liberties as the Constitutional
right to due process.
See my story
about such violations.|
This situation of their not caring about your
civil rights has personal security implications for you.
With no reason whatsoever, some mentally ill person at the Institute (nearly
every employee of the Institute is mentally ill) can intimidate a bank into
handing over everything in your checking account. With no warning or notice
to you. Just, POOF the money's gone. And you won't get it back. Ever.
If you have overdraft protection, that will repeatedly trigger until it's
exhausted (one poor victim had a $9,000 limit credit card available for
overdraft, and it got maxed out). They will keep hitting that account, even
if nothing's in it, just to stick you with 10 or 15 overdraft fees of $35
They enjoy hurting people. As winter approaches, they hold contests to
see who can render the most people homeless. Well, OK, I have not verified
that second statement. But the first statement is absolutely true.
You don't need to have done anything wrong. They can pick you at random.
Remember, these are mentally ill people who believe laws don't apply to
them and American citizens have no constitutionally-protected liberties.
Unfortunately, the justice-agnostic courts and criminal-friendly legislature
reinforce these beliefs by not doing anything about the crimes. The
Department Of (in)Justice won't even investigate them.
It is up to you to take preventive and protective measures.
The good news is there actually is a defense against this kind of attack.
These psychopaths can't attack a checking account they don't know about.
They know about a checking account only if you tell them about it. One way
people provide this information is they send a tax payment check drawn on
the same checking account they use for everything else. This is a huge
Set aside a special checking account just for paying taxes (those
relatively few that require positive payment as opposed to the automatic
taxation by which most taxes are collected). When you send the Institute a
check drawn on that account, it's the only account they will know about
unless you give them additional information. So if they attack you, all they
get is what little you've deposited in that account. This is a simple way to
protect thousands of dollars from simply being stolen from you. And
remember, it can be thousands of dollars you don't have (they can run a
credit card to its limits, leaving you with massive monthly payments).
As a further benefit (if you do this correctly with prefunding of
liabilities well in advance), you've set aside money for paying those taxes.
It's like having it in escrow. You'll never bounce a tax check or have other
dibs on the money.
- Always set up the account in a bank where you have no other
- Preferably, hold all of your other checking accounts in banks in
towns in which you do not live. For your main working account, choose
interest-free checking so this one is never reported to the Institute.
- Note that the Institute can check banks in the town where you live;
this is why you want to locate your accounts outside the town where you
live (makes locating an account to raid nearly impossible).
- Note also that if they find an account at one bank, they can force
the bank to reveal other accounts you hold at that bank. Thus, one account per bank.
Advice for this tax payment account:
- Always make deposits in cash. One electronic transfer, and you leave
a trail from this account to the others. Don't deposit checks in there,
unless they are from a government agency.
- Never deposit a government agency check, especially a 1040 tax
refund check, in any other account. Deposit those in this account.
- Know what tax payments are coming up, and make the deposits (to
cover them) about two months ahead of time.
- Don't use this account for any other purpose. Paying property taxes,
driver license fees, etc., is fine because those are still taxes. But
don't use it to pay any non-government payee.
- When at the bank, don't talk about why you have the account. It's
- Make smallish deposits. A limit of about $500 to $700 is reasonable.
Much above that, and you start to attract attention.
- If you must wait in line, wait patiently. Looking frantically around
because you have other places to be is not a good practice in a bank.
Just relax, you'll be done when you get done.
- Always sort your bills and have them facing the same way. Make it
easy for the teller to count them. If you have a $100 bill along with a
bunch of $20 bills, set that one down first separately from the rest and
put your finger on the denomination. Don't speak aloud what it is, the
teller handles money all day and will understand.
- Do not speak while the teller is counting.
Always dress appropriately for going to the bank, even if you're using
the drive-up (it has cameras). This is just good manners, but setting this
tone of respect can pay off in practical ways too. You want to dress
about at the same level as the tellers, regardless of how inappropriately
other patrons dress when visiting the establishment.
6. Health tip/Fitness tips
the most common questions that bodybuilders get asked is, "How much can you
the bench press is indeed a great compound exercise, this is the wrong
question to ask. For one thing, if you go into most any gym and watch 100
people bench press you will see 99 do it incorrectly. They rotate their
shoulders forward so as to heft more weight, and this cheats the pecs out of
the work that gets the adaptive response.
see someone benching 180 lbs, I can usually take 80 lbs off that bar and
then have the person fail to be able to do 3 reps in correct form.
Underdeveloped pecs are the bane of the bench press crowd.
better question to ask is, "How hard are your flyes?"
that he knows anything about bodybuilding, but 6-time Mr. Olympia Arnold
Schwarzenegger relied on flyes for chest development. And he had a 58 inch
chest above his 33 inch waist. He was not really big
on the bench press.
used an "open" posture, which when doing flyes really expands the entire
chest. He also used heavy weights and focused on contracting the muscles.
Slow movement, not inertia-based fake workouts. When done correctly, flyes
also make your abs pop.
want a chiseled, powerful chest it's not about how much you can bench. It's
about how hard you can contract those pecs during the negative portion of
flyes. The more load you put on them, the greater the adaptive response..
www.supplecity.com, you'll find plenty of informative, authoritative
articles on maintaining a lean, strong physique. It has nothing to
do with long workouts or impossible to maintain diets. In fact:|
- The best workouts are short and intense.
- A good diet contains far more flavors and satisfaction
than the typical American diet.
As a child in Indonesia, Barrack Hussein Obama was adopted by his mother's
second husband, Mr. Soetoro. Barrack's legal name was
subsequently changed to Barry Soetoro. When he later traveled to the USA on an
Indonesian passport, that had to be the name on the passport.|
There is no record of his legally changing his name
back to his three Muslim names, yet those are the names he uses for legal
purposes. The implication? Every Executive Order he has signed and every bill he
has signed has been signed fraudulently.
- There is no
documentation showing how he emigrated to the United States as a citizen of
Indonesia. That makes him an illegal immigrant.
- But he claims he was born here. When he was challenged to produce an
American birth certificate he came up with an obvious forgery that listed his
race as "Black" about a decade before that term was used in place of "Negro"
(that's an historical fact).
- His mother, being under-aged when she bore him, was not old enough to
confer citizenship on him. His father was a citizen of Kenya.
- Even if he had a valid American BC, it would not prove he's a citizen
because just being born in the USA does not make you a citizen of the
country; both parents must be citizens or one must be a citizen and at least
18 (that's immigration law). The fraudulent BC does prove that Soetoro is a
fraudster with something to hide.
Our dictator is not only an illegal alien, he's an illegal alien who is
illegally using an alias to sign official documents while also fraudulently
presenting false identification papers. Why is he not in jail on that basis
alone, not to mention the many other crimes this psychopath has committed since
illegally taking office?
It won't do any good to ask your "on the take" member
of CONgress to uphold the law. Soetoro will likely never stand trial or even
be deported. But at least we can speak the truth about him. Let's get the word
