South Korea building ‘smart’ city in Kuwait in 2019

The US$4 billion project is expected to house 25,000 to 40,000 families

A consortium of South Korean construction companies will begin building a $4 billion “smart” city in Kuwait in 2019, Seoul’s infrastructure ministry said on Monday.

Yonhap News Agency reports the group is led by POSCO A&C and Hyundai Architects and Engineers Associates Co. The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport says the eco-friendly and digitally connected urban hub will serve as a prototype for similar Korean projects throughout the Middle East. The new Kuwait city is expected to accommodate between 25,000 — 40,000 families.

 

Whole new cities, such as Songdo in South Korea, have already been constructed.

Its buildings have automatic climate control and computerised access; its roads and water, waste and electricity systems are dense with electronic sensors to enable the city’s brain to track and respond to the movement of residents.

Officially known as the Songdo International Business District, this 40 billion USD project is promoted as a smart, green, low-carbon city.(The fact that 1,500 acres of Yellow Sea marshland, home to several endangered bird species, was devastated for this ‘green’ city is another matter.)

Songdo- a new kind of city: completely artificial, painstakingly designed, without a hint of decay or poverty, and nearly empty. It’s a human desert. Characterless. Sterile and soul-less, the city looks different from Korean cities. There are no poor people, no street vendors, no old people.


Songdo is also a town under constant surveillance: 500 cameras ensure total grid coverage to regulate the traffic or detect ‘suspicious’ behaviour. Even the opening of a sewer cover is immediately notified to the IFEZ  management centre in one of the towers in Songdo. Who work in close collaboration with the police.

 

If an entire city has an “operating system”, what happens when it goes wrong? The one thing that is certain about software is that it crashes. The smart city is really just a “perpetual beta city”. We can be sure that accidents will happen – driverless cars will crash; bugs will take down whole transport subsystems or the electricity grid; drones could hit passenger aircraft. How smart will the architects of the smart city look then?

Park Seon-mi says “There are sometimes strange smells which come from the factories in neighbouring cities and we are not safe from the pollution from China”. “The buildings are totally transparent and it is impossible to open the windows”, says her friend Hong Ji-hyeon. “In summer and winter the air conditioning is on all the time. I wonder if I don’t use more than before”. She herself had not seen the link between smart city and environment.

“To me, it’s just digital and in this respect it’s not very different from Seoul”.

More than a decade on from its inception and the city is less than a quarter full, with just 70,000 residents. It’s an odd mixture of wastelands intermingled with random large-scale development. People aren’t coming and neither are businesses.

There are many UK smart city start up companies.

In a background paper on smart cities put together  by the United Kingdom’s Department for Business Innovation and Skills, ARUP estimates that the global market for smart urban systems (including transport, energy, sanitation and healthcare) This is a very lucrative area for business. It is already a £280m market that will grow to £1tn by 2020, according to UK government estimates. The UK’s share of this global market is estimated at 10%. other words, it’s a huge market opportunity.

One such company is Design for Social Change. (D4SC) is an urban innovation company based in London, Bangalore and Berlin. It develops collaborative urban technologies to co-create smarter cities. It was incorporated in the UK in 2013.

City authorities in Malaysia, Portugal and Denmark are exploring using D4SC’s citizen engagement and smart city planning.

According to D4SC founder Priya Prakash, one of the company’s most successful initiatives has been Changify SmarterStreets, a next-generation data platform that combines bottom-up citizen data – what he calls “little data” – with top-down statistical and historical city data (big data) to co-create smarter cities in real time.

“We are technically piloting this in Plymouth with an active local community of cyclists and local Amey maintenance crews to co-create intelligent service provisioning for road infrastructure through real-time feedback loops using social media,” says Prakash.

“This pilot is trialling a new bottom-up, citizen-driven approach using crowdsourcing, sensor data and voting. It could change the way that highways issues in cities can be managed.”

Manchester New Chartist Event, “The Chartists are back!” Thursday 19th April 2018

This will be a two-hour event explaining the New Chartist Movement to the people of Manchester.

Justin Walker and Alan Davies from ‘The Word’ newspaper will be speaking and possibly others.

There hopefully will be plenty of time for networking, questions and discussions.

Looking forward to meeting you all.

Date: 19/04/2018 06:30 PM
Location: Friends’ Meeting House, 6 Mount Street, Manchester, M2 5NS
More Info: Main Hall

The fight back to gain our Sovereignty, Divinity and Freedom started for many back in 2010 and for some even further than that, today in 2018 this fight is gaining momentum and strength with new Communities and Charter groups forming across the UK and the World. More and more people are realising the predicament they are in and can forsee the future is very bleak if the Elite and corrupt Governments are not faced with some kind of resistance and held accountable for thier treasons which still does carry a death penalty in the UK. Unfortunately these groups have many fronts to aim for from the Internet of Things (5G), Fracking, Civil Rights, and corruptly made up Laws in favour of corporations just to name a few. Many more people are needed to join these groups or even form their own, fortunately leaflets, FREE books and conferences are becoming more widely available and easily accessible to help people understand, learn and plan a course of action.

In my opinion 2020 will be a decisive year for either Man gaining his freedom or the Elites reaching a point of checkmate against the World because in 2020 will be the start of the Smart Grid and then there will be no turning back, we will have lost our ability to confront these people. Of course it isn’t just the Smart Grid that will seal our doom Brexit is another Elephant in the room for the simple reason Brexit was never meant to be a fair referendum and it’s ultimate goal is to hand the people to a foreign rule and then there is no hope to regain your sovereignty. (Problem, Reaction, Solution)

For me to go through all the problems in this World is a pointless excersise most people reading this will know already and for people who dont, well this should give them enough to research for themselves. Below will be links to four very important FREE books firstly because of their contents which is invaluable and secondly the ability to pass them on, they are both in PDF so can be easily distrubuted. Also you find two links to Wesbites that are fighting back by peaceful means but are starting to give them a few bruises by using Common Law / Natural Law which they cannot ignore if done correctly.

The time to stand up and fight is now, the clock is ticking and it’s against you and by staying silent or waiting for something to happen you are giving these treasonous criminals your consent, personally I will not play their games and will resist their system every chance I get no matter what the consequences maybe.

Are you aware of the dangers of 5G Technology?

If the answer is no then I suggest you use this and other sites to get up to speed before this technology is forced upon an unsuspecting public.

If the answer is Yes, then you must be concerned as many others are, to the health, environment and surveillance implications for our future.

As we know, social media is having a purge on the Alternative Research Community, making it impossible to share important research, this is not coincidence at this time. The Globalists intend to roll out a very sinister and dangerous technology that will be hailed as faster broadband, better connectivity and a great new idea of connecting everything to the Internet of Things.

The problem is that we too, will become the things.

Whilst experts have refuted the claims that this technology will mean faster/better/greater and scientists and doctors have written thousands of peer reviewed studies that prove beyond doubt that EMR is already a serious danger, whilst the next generation of this technology will be catastrophic for humanity.

In the meantime, the public for most part, have no idea exactly what 5G is.

It is up to us to inform and educate in our own communities.

This is achievable if people get onboard. How can the public refuse something like 5G if they do not know exactly what it entails?

We owe it to our children and to their children, to make sure that the future is safe, you MUST be willing to help or that old saying that ” All it takes for evil to exist is for good people to do nothing” will come to fruition.

We propose leaflet campaigns, street actions, make some noise, release balloons, change you FB profile to one that highlights 5G, advertise in the media, do whatever we can to highlight this dangerous technology.

At the moment, the Inpower movement have a Notice of Liability process that covers only N.America and Canada, do you have any experience in Law? Can you help by getting involved with a UK group who will work on this?

Can you spare money for advertising costs or have a printer that can help spread the word?

It is time that we stood up for our rights, our health, our children and our future. We can only do this by direct action in our communities, please join the forum on this website, together we can create UK Against 5G.

SCIENCE One of the first arguments people make when they are introduced to the idea that vaccines could be causing harm is, “That isn’t so, check the science.” THE GREATER GOOD Team fully agrees with this premise.

This compilation of research contains over 180 papers published in peer reviewed medical and scientific journals that explore and discuss injuries linked to vaccines.

We have compiled this catalogue of science to help parents, lawmakers, medical practitioners and scientists understand several important points about the vaccine issue:

• there is abundant science published in mainstream medical and scientific journals suggesting cause for concern about the safety of vaccines;

• the vaccine debate is not a debate between parents and doctors but rather amongst scientists with opposing views;

• vaccines may be linked to a host of chronic illnesses and conditions such as asthma, allergies, learning disabilities, behavioral problems, autism, unexplained infant death and autoimmune diseases such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, MS, and others;

• there are connections between the gut, immune, and neurological issues often seen in vaccine injuries. This compilation does not contain all the science on vaccines but rather the science that suggests cause for concern.
