What really happened in Copenhagen?
It was reported that President Obama was to blame for the unraveling of the show- unless of course you were Mark Lynas who witnessed how China hijacked the global negotiations by way of absence and silence.
It was concluded that China wants to weaken the climate regulation regime now "in order to avoid the risk that it might be called on to be more ambitious in a few years’ time".
Because cheap coal is the backbone of China’s growth, they are unwilling to alter their magic formula that has fueled their freedom of action dominance. A change in geopolitics? Sure. A change in environmental governance and proxy? Lets just hope that India, Brazil, and South Africa step up to the plate with new found leadership.
078-05-1120 is the most misused social security number ever.some 40,000 people have claimed this SSN as their own. Here is the story behind it:
In 1938, wallet manufacturer the E. H. Ferree company in Lockport, New York decided to promote its product by showing how a Social Security card would fit into its wallets. A sample card, used for display purposes, was inserted in each wallet. Company Vice President and Treasurer Douglas Patterson thought it would be a clever idea to use the actual SSN of his secretary, Mrs. Hilda Schrader Whitcher.
The wallet was sold by Woolworth stores and other department stores all over the country. Even though the card was only half the size of a real card, was printed all in red, and had the word "specimen" written across the face, many purchasers of the wallet adopted the SSN as their own. In the peak year of 1943, 5,755 people were using Hilda’s number. SSA acted to eliminate the problem by voiding the number and publicizing that it was incorrect to use it. (Mrs. Whitcher was given a new number.) However, the number continued to be used for many years. In all, over 40,000 people reported this as their SSN. As late as 1977, 12 people were found to still be using the SSN issued by Woolworth.
