2019-11-12-16-13-IST - To LG-com regarding spare partsOpen Letter – escalation – seeking spare parts for LG refrigerator GC-B217BLJ – so that it can continue to be utilized – so that the cost-to-the-earth-of-making-it can go a longer way.
I had some encounters with https://www.lg.com/in. I was able to request service for refrigerator GC-B217BLJ. The service-engineer turned up on site, and was able to satisfactorily repair the fault.
However, it so happens that https://www.lg.com/in does not offer spare parts. I had to send an email request. On the resulting call, in order to present the problem, I asked for a site visit, and the service-engineer arrived, took photos of the places where the parts were required. However, apparently after investigation of availability, the service-engineer informed me that the parts were not available. I was naturally upset by this information. And asked him to pass on my feedback to the company.
So, I was contacted by another person from LG. (I was in the middle of voice-training (for singing) at the time of the call, so my voice might have been a little exercised on answering that call). I explained that due to the absence of freezer-shelves, I was unable to use half the freezer capacity. And in the absence of spare parts, half the freezer capacity was unusable. The refrigerator is 5 years old, with a 10 year warranty on the Inverter Linear Compressor. However, without freezer-shelves upon which to place food, half the freezer is unusable. Further, I informed the representative that if I could not get spare parts, my decision-of-the-moment would be to go to some other refrigerator-provider.
I am escalating this you in the hope that LG will provide spare parts for the product it has made (though the design of the freezer shelves was not as good as the fridge shelves). And though it will cost me to replace freezer shelves that are unusable because their support-structure was too weak to bear the load.
Ms. Ann Abraham,
P. S. : In order to maintain the sustainability of the LG GC-B217BLJ, spare parts support is essential. I mean, spare parts for a working-freezer will contribute to its being utilized, so that hopefully we can continue to keep it. Which means that the cost-to-the-earth in producing it goes a longer way.
2019-09-28-09-25-IST - Let us buy less and enjoy moreBuying less products means less demand, which means less production, which means less pollution.
Let's slow down production and take a breather.
There are many products developed in the past 42 years. Let's brush 'em off and sell 'em. Maybe, their time has come, finally.
2019-09-06-09-42-IST - About the economic slowdownhttps://annsps-2016-03-26.blogspot.com/2019/09/2019-06-09-31-ist-about-economic.html
So there is the week. It has 7 days. Some days we work and some days we rest.
There is the year. Currently, it takes 365.25 days of 24 hours each to go around the sun once.
Once upon a time, hypothetically speaking, when the earth was just gaseous, it rotated very, very slowly. It possibly took millions or even billions of hours to turn about it’s axis. As time went by, the mass coagulated at the centre and became a solid planet, and the speed of rotation about its axis grew faster. Nowadays it is 24 hours.
So, it takes 1461 days to complete 4 revolutions around the sun. People, for convenience, have made each year to be 365 days, totaling 1460 days in 4 iterations, and then tagging on the full remaining day to the 4th year, so that it has 366 days. So that is 3 years of 365 days, and every 4th year of 366 days.
365 days divided by 7 is 52 weeks and a day.
It so happens that 7 x 7 = 49.
So (52 weeks and a day) are 49 weeks + (3 weeks and a day), rounded up to 49 weeks and 3.5 weeks. And 3.5 is half of 7.
So, it appears the number 7 has some significance with respect to time.
It is said in an ancient scripture, “6 days you shall labour and work, and rest the 7th day”. Something like the week-end that we have.
It was further quoted as every 7th year the land shall be rested, and lie fallow. So that is a set of 7 years. Just like a set of 7 days is called a week, we could call “a set of 7 years” as SOSY.
So one might ask, what happens every 7th iteration of SOSY. Shouldn’t, by extrapolation, it be rested too? Yes, it should. But the question arises of what should be rested.
• On the 7th day, everyone was supposed to have total rest – the people, the servants, the work-animals, everything. Even cooking was to be done the day before, so that absolutely everyone could rest.
• On the 7th year, cooking was allowed, except on the 7th days. Only the land had to lie fallow and rest for a whole year without crops. The previous year was supposed to produce enough crops till the crops of the 8th year was brought in.
• On the 7th “set of 7 years” (SOSY) one definitely should cook, and one supposedly cannot rest the land without crops for 7 years. Unless so much is produced in the 6th SOSY, that it is sufficient for the 7th SOSY.
o But, since the dawn of the Industrial age, there is something that needs to be rested for 7 whole years. And that is the Industrial scene.
• People nowadays talk about “burnout”, “mid-life crisis” and economic slowdown. Well, there is a work-and-rest cycle that needs to be honoured in an Industrial scene. So, let us plan to rest and slow-down, so that our people don’t burn out. The 7th day, called the weekend, should be rested. The 7th year should be a year of rest. And the 7th SOSY should be a time of rest too.
• The 7th set of 7 years is from the 43rd year to the 49th year, both inclusive. This falls around the middle-of-a-100-year life. Usually called a “mid-life crisis”, it is just that the person needs to plan out a period of rest, because probably the DNA is written that way – to not produce anything of work during the 43 – 49 years of life.
So, let us plan to slow down and rest periodically – every 7th day, every 7th year and every 7th SOSY. That way, it won’t be a surprise when worn-out parts demand rest and slow-down on their own.
The economic recessions that periodically happen are overworked economies gasping for rest and recuperation, unable to bear the frenetic pace of the rat race.
So, let us PLAN out times of global rest for our tired economies.

2019-01-27-14-10-IST - Let there be peace on earthLet there be peace on earth,
Let this be the Moment now.
Let there be Peace on Earth,
The Peace that was meant to be
With God as our Maker
Brothers all are we
Let me walk with my Brother
In perfect harmony.
Let Peace begin on earth
And let it begin with me
With every step I take
Let this be my solemn vow
To Take each moment
And live each moment
In Peace eternally
Let there be Peace on Earth
And let it begin with me
And let it begin with me...
2018-08-10-11-52-IST - Of sausages and spamSo there is the wonderful sausage.
People wonder what goes into the sausage or burger patty.
It is minced meat.
Meat minced because it is tough old meat.
Tough old meat obtained from cattle, sheep, goats, deer, roebuck, hart, gazelle, antelope, reindeer etc. that have lived their life and then passed on, leaving the carcass behind. (Old Dead Healthy – Tough Minced meat – ODH-TM meat).
Because the animal is old, the meat will be tough, but if the animal ate well through it’s life, the meat will be full of nutrients.
…I think it’s something like wood.
A tree as a sapling has a certain texture of wood.
As it matures, the wood gets better.
If we let it grow as long as possible, and then have a waiting time of about 10 months or so, to prove that the tree is no longer growing, the lumber would be of the best quality.
So also, if an edible animal eats well during it’s lifetime, then when it passes on, the carcass will be of optimal quality.
But a little tough, I suppose.
So the tough meat is minced and made into sausage, burger patties, luncheon meat, bologna etc… Even spam.
2018-08-10-11-32-IST - Satellite planetsSo there is this satellite-planet, constructed completely by mankind.
It is in orbit around the earth or stationary in orbit above the earth.
Building materials are sourced from the Earth or from other planets, and the 3-D printing of components happens in space, and the components are joined together to form the satellite-planet.
Since gravity is absent at the satellite-planet, the tallest, widest possible construction can be done.
So if a satellite-planet stays stationary above the earth, then there could be radii drawn from the center of the earth, passing through the surface and reaching the satellite-planet.
So it would be like an exo-surface around the earth, high above the ground, in space.
For living purposes, food and water are necessary.
If all cleaning and cleansing agents are bio-degradable, then all the used-water from the kitchens and toilets can be poured over sand, and filtered down a few metres, to get clean water, as well as to filter out all the organic particles into the sand, which could possibly be then used for agricultural purposes.
The filtered water could go through tubes exposed
…or the sun’s rays could be focused via concave or convex lenses
…concave lenses or convex mirrors…
on the tubes, for maximum heat transfer to the water, to quickly bring the water to a boil…
to the sun’s rays, and the water could boil, issue out as steam, to run a steam-turbine
…the steam pushes magnets to move in the presence of stationary electric coils, and then electricity is induced in those coils, which can then be collected in a battery, for later use….
, and then condense into pure H2O water, which is good for drinking purposes.
All the organic particulate matter would have been trapped in the sand-filter, and so all the minerals and salts necessary for growing plants would also be added, and then the minerals and salts will be found in the plants, which then are good sources of food for the humans and animals on the satellite-planet.
Food is prepared from the agricultural produce of the satellite-planet. The peelings and leftovers are fed to the animals.
When the animals have eaten and lived their life, and finally die, as was the case with all living creatures, then once the life departs, if the animal is edible, then it is processed to get Old Dead Healthy Tough Minced (ODH-TM) meat
…more about ODH-TM meat at URL - http://annsianl.blogspot.com/2018/04/2018-04-26-12-37-ist.html
and that becomes a food for the humans.
I suppose that only herbivorous animals would be aboard the satellite-planet.
In such a case of having a satellite planet, roads are not just at the base, but all through the planet, with automatic steering, so that the passenger just tells the cab-driver, the destination, and the cab-driver selects the destination, and then the cab finds it’s own way via routing-algorithms, and taking cognizance of traffic lights etc.
like the multi-level roads seen in the movie “The fifth element”.
So those roads weren’t on earth, they were in a satellite-planet.
2018-08-10-09-20-IST - Food factories producing complete fooAnd when we consider food, we need to prepare good, wholesome complete foods, with all the bran and germ along with the carbohydrate part.
Even cheese-curls, if the flour used is complete-grain flour, can be a healthy food source.
So most of the factory made foods can be tweaked a bit by using complete-grain flour.
The methodology and the equipment to manufacture the food can probably stay the same - just a change in the ingredients – to use only complete-grain flours.
This might need an updation in the amount of baking-powder or baking-soda, or even the liquid measurements, since complete-grains need about 3 – 4 times the liquid, instead of just 2 times.
And voila, just like that, the food-factories which currently don’t, can start to churn out complete-foods that are a joy to eat, and a delight to feel-good after eating it.
2018-08-09-15-17-IST - The flight option of the fight-or-fliIt looks like the NRC – National Registry of Citizens of India is leaving out a lot of people, calling them aliens because they do not have proper documentation.
It seems a little similar to the people of Jacob when they were in Egypt, and overstayed their time there, instead of heading out to their Promised Land.
Anytime there is conflict, there is hypothetically, the “fight or flight” option.
It appears that conflict is a knock-on-the-door of someone saying that someone is not where they’re supposed to be, and are getting in the way of someone.
As long as one can stay peacefully in a place, one should.
But when it gets difficult, it is a call of nature - to go some place where they can be at rest.
After all, there are many lands on this planet, and now that most of it is full, it is time to look at our next stage of responsibility, which perhaps, hypothetically, is the solar system.
And with the discovery of water under the surface of Mars, and possible 3-D printed homes on the agenda for people to stay on Mars, it appears that the time is right for colonization of the planet.
Possibly, in the beginning, food and resources for living on Mars could be sourced from the Earth, but there would have to be some way of sustainable agriculture on said planet also.
We hear of tonnes of food rotting in the warehouses due to some reason – maybe it was supposed to have been transported to Mars to feed populations there.
