Pacific Webworks Goes Quietly

Pacific Webworks Sold

Oh how the mighty have fallen.

Pacific WebWorks Sale Approved

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court approved Pacific WebWorks motion authorizing the sale of Debtor’s intellipay subsidiary free and clear of liens, claims, encumbrances and interests.

The order states, “The Debtor conducted an auction consistent with the procedures described in the Motion on April 20, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. (the Auction). The highest and best bid submitted at the Auction was by Convenient Payments, in the amount of $140,000. The second highest and best bid submitted at the Auction was by Otterstrom in the amount of $130,000.”

Look what happens when fraudulent business practices are used and sound advice ignored.

Look at what once was…

PWW 5yr share history

PWW 5yr share history

Back in September 2009, Pacific Webworks was proudly announcing $21.4 million in gross profits.  Shares were over 30 cents.

Now the business is sold, share price less than a cent.

Karmic Retribution Ignored?

But PWW were warned, not least in these pages.

Along with Jesse Willms they ignored the dire warnings about improper business practices.  Willms even threatened me with his lawyers to shut up.

In the end, they were both just too bad, too visibly illegal, too hurtfully immoral in their ways that even the glacially slow process of real justice finally caught up with them – PWW couldn’t take the hit from a Google lawsuit, Willms couldn’t take the hit from the Feds, though he still continues in business without his old fanfares of self-publicity and his websites are notable for their lack of detail what he actually does anymore.

(Karmic) Retribution on Pacific Webworks?

Chapter 11 Bankruptcy on Internet “Business”, Pacific Webworks.

Tangled Web

Tangled Web

Following several knock-downs by disgruntled, ripped-off individuals and hefty wallops from Google, it appears that running legal is difficult for Utah based business Pacific Webworks (PWW) ….  They’ve just filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.  Announcement here.

This allows them to stay in business and re-organise their debts… gives them a “fresh” start, it says.

Sow and Ye Shall Reap.

Karmic retribution is a bit like Jesus’ saying about reaping what you sow.

If you examine this web search on this website you will see that I have written several articles on PWW and their previously dodgy web practices.  Many times I warned them that their behaviour would lead to no-good.  I stated that I did not have to do anything – that karma would see them fail – and so they have.

The Future

PWW, formerly a tarmac company, now has time to figure out what to do.  If they stay legal I wish them well and hope they prosper.  If not, there’s always karmic retribution.  Reducing this makes us and the world, better.

Why Throw Away History?

The Web, History, Link-rot & Crawling Chaos

A Hockey Stick

A Hockey Stick, nothing to do with Climate Change

Again, while checking for link-rot, I came across a broken link on the Crawling Chaos website.  Specifically, it’s when I deal with our introduction to Factory Records and that I played with a hockey team called Northumbria alongside the Tyne Tees Television (TTTV) newsreader called Rod Griffith.

I included a referral link to their old website, http://www.warrm.demon.co.uk/history.htm.  This is now dead so I’ve used the Wayback Machine’s link from 2001 on the page instead.  Using a well known search engine (he he), I now find they are called Whitley Bay & Tynemouth Hockey Club with this website.

1902

It is definitely the same club as there’s another link to this website, a place-marker in a compendium of clubs that has a single piece of history on it – it says “founded 1902”!!

Disappointing

It’s actually more than disappointing, it’s very sad.  There’s a fair bit of history to the club and all they can publicly pronounce is “founded 1902″…   It should be more than this.  The Toon has a history page, only from WW2 mind, but it’s more than nothing.  Spurs like-wise, and it goes back to the 19th century!

It all adds to the guts of what makes a club.

It’s not hard to compile a history for the web.  Once someone has typed it out, it’s not going to change much is it?  It’s history!  The typed words can be copied anywhere.  Any, where.  Even here, say….

A Short History of Whitley Bay & Tynemouth Hockey Club (founded 1902)

From an article dated June 16, 2004 here.

Tynemouth Hockey Club has recently celebrated its centenary year. The club began life playing under the name of North Durham in 1902. At that time most of the players were clergymen who travelled to away games in a horse drawn carriage. Later in the century the club changed its name to Northumbria and played its home games at the Miners’ Welfare ground in the village of Backworth. The club made another move to North Shields where they became known as Tynemouth Hockey Club and played on the ground used by Tynemouth Cricket Club. In 1989 an astro pitch was laid at Wallsend Sports Centre so the club transferred itself to another new location but retained the name of Tynemouth Hockey Club.

In November 1997 Tynemouth Hockey Club moved from Wallsend Sports Centre to two new astro pitches at The Parks, North Shields.

Conclusion

Thanks to The Parks and Ali Gordon for corresponding with a gentleman from Inverness who has sent this photograph to the club. As far as we know it is the oldest surviving photograph that we possess. Durham North as the men’s team was originally called, began life in 1902. The first match was played on 18th October 1902 against Novocastrians. We lost 4-1!

This is a very short history, but it’s better than the nothing that is currently shown.  I played for Northumbria (as it then was) at Backworth & Tynemouth from 1972 to around 1980, not too regularly, but enough to feel part of it.

There are some documents that are downloadable, but nothing that exposes the past to a wider audience.  They are nearly all either Word or PDF files!  Totally un-crawlable with the web search spiders.  For instance, in the newsletter for October 2015 here, we find this wonderful photo.

Because it’s wrapped inside a PDF file, no-one would ever know.

I’ve copied it, and the text, as a caption (I’ll pull it, if asked, but one has to consider if my reasons are valid first).  Now, I know my website will be crawled within a few minutes of me posting – this means that all the text will be available for all, the small amount of history from the original website too.

And the Novocastrians as mentioned in the photo?  Yep.  I played against them too.  It’s all fun and it’s a part of many folks’ lives especially in an age of increasing information and decreasing paper records.

This stuff needs to be public and kept else what is a society?  Sometimes looking and talking about history is very comforting.  It’s what some people do when they stop playing, since sport is for younger folks.

Now, because of my SEO skills and experience I can guarantee that if someone searches for Whitley Bay & Tynemouth Hockey Club, Backworth hockey, Tynemouth hockey, Rod Griffith or Novocastrians (say), this page will be there for all to find.

On top of that:

  • There seems to be no effort on the part of Pitchero who host the website or whoever else may maintain the website to keep links alive.  The site is riddled with 404s and inconsistencies.
  • Some document files are PDF, some are DOC, some are XLS files.  Some are links to a Pitchero login so are unavailable, except if you login with Facebook ffs!
  • A major part of a sports club is the fixture list.  Some links don’t point to where they should or else the template hasn’t been updated from the 2012-3 season.  Some are XLS files with the same info appearing on other webpages.

It is all a mess, primarily supporting the sponsors’ huge logos and it’s all very sad.  Maybe there’s some information overload for the webmaster, maybe it’s internal politics, maybe too many people have their fingers in the web pie?

It could be so much better, cleaner, consistent and useful to a club member.  I see Steve Troup just joined as a webmaster, hopefully he can tidy things up and get some club history sorted out!

Rant over.

Chemtrails Investigation

Doing the Rounds with Chemtrail Hype

From worldtruth.tv

From worldtruth.tv – or is it?

This image on the left, from WorldTruth.tv (sic) purports to be an air plane landing and the pilot has forgotten to turn off his chemtrail generator.  They disingenuously headline with,

“Busted Pilot Forgets To Turn Off CHEMTRAILS While Landing”

Below the amazing image is a video of another plane, landing during a very misty night, ditching fuel possibly, while emergency vehicles rush to the scene (the sirens are wailing after all).

If you think the plane is chemtrailing while landing you need to check your eyes and ears because that is not my opinion of the video.

By using TinEye reverse image search I found tens of recent websites using the image as chemtrail proof.  You too can do the same by copying then pasting this image URL below into the TinEye page:

http://strangelyperfect.tv/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/turbulencia_01_1600x12001_16001200_20140427_221148_20140427_221209-250×180.jpg

Steve Morris Photo from 2005

Steve Morris Photo from 2005

There are also several earlier websites listed which all ultimately point to the source of the photo, here, on the right.  You can see it all here: Steve Morris’s original photo from 2005

Far from being chemtrail pollution, the Boeing 757 is landing at Gatwick on a typically humid British day.  Morris has captured the plane in low sun and emphasised the colours produced in the air from the London vehicle pollution for effect, IMHO.

Morris’s page 2 has some fantastic images, none of which are chemtrail proof, but could of course be used as such – he actually has hundreds of images.  A busy, skilled, dawn and dusk photographer.

WorldTruth TV seems more like place to generate visits to further their financial gains from advertising, since the site is plastered with adverts, many, what I’d call very dubious in nature, gambling and big tit adverts for instance.  It is typical of the genre, much like the Daily mail’s website.

 Chemtrails Themselves

Chemtrail Image Search

Chemtrail Image Search

Doing a Google image search shows hundreds of so-called chemtrail images as some sort of proof.  Similarly as a standard page search.

But I’m an old guy now and I’ve seen a lot of sky.

I’m also a scientist with a physics and polictical background.  I understand fears and have witnessed government corruption and wheeler-dealing for decades now.

Despite that, I cannot see how chemtrailing is at all cost-effective and no clear reason for doing it has ever been eschewed.  It is all, guesswork.

The atmospheric proof is nothing.  I’ve seen many, many weird skies ever since I was very young and I have grown up and witnessed a phenomenal growth in:

  • air travel,
  • motor vehicle usage,
  • rain forest destruction,
  • changing agricultural methods

…..on a global scale.

All of these influence the atmosphere and its water-particulate balance with water in each of its triple states.  See this link on the triple point of water.  Both water and carbon dioxide (both highly important greenhouse gases) have unusual triple points and triple states of matter.

The state of the atmosphere can produce very weird effects, especially when combined with the global air corridors that planes must use, many criss-crossing the jet-streams several times.  Undoubtedly, high altitude cirrus has increased and would be expected to increase from increased jet travel, along with the natural aerosol injections from volcanoes and forest fires.  This cirrus is one of the components that naturally modifies global climate.  So stop air travel?  Yeah, that’ll happen.

  • If you cannot understand triple points then you will of course be taken in by the very atmospheric images obtainable of flying aircraft.
  • I you cannot understand that an aircraft flies by the vacuum sucking it into the sky then you will of course be taken in by the very atmospheric images obtainable of flying aircraft.
  • If you cannot understand how photographers can use light and technology to take and process images then you will of course be taken in by the very atmospheric images obtainable of flying aircraft.  Check out Steve Morris’s photos for more “examples” of chemtrail….  http://www.airteamimages.com/steve-morris_pid1507.html – he has hundreds! LOL.

It’s not my fault that you are allowing yourself to be deceived by the chemtrail theory if you cannot understand the above.

Proof

What we need is proof.  If you understand aircraft flight, photography and physics, then please supply some proof of chemtrails, the reasons for doing it and how and why any government in collusion with others would do such a thing.

I have not read  a single definitive proof.

Tony Benn in Bing Top 3 – BBC Hide Tony Benn Funeral

Bing Search Shows True Popularity of Tony Benn

Benn Funeral

Benn Funeral

I’ve seen the Bing search engine promote Tony Benn’s funeral to the top 3 searches, while the BBC coverage almost hide’s the funeral!  For god’s sake, people cheered and applauded with gratitude in the streets as the coffin went past!  There was NO jeering.

Many people on social media have commented that the Tory government is manipulating the news output through changing the hire & fire of those that run the corporation to tory supporters and lobby groups.  This is readily apparent today, when comparing the BBC output for the funeral of a revered MP, Tony Benn, to that of Thatcher, the former leader, loathed and derided my millions.  See Mike, for instance.

Benn, top 3 on Bing!

Benn, top 3 on Bing!

Many on Facebook and Twitter have pointed out this difference.  So I checked an alternate stream…. the load page of Bing (Microsoft’s search engine).  That’s it here.

You will see that the top 3 web searches are (were):

  • Ukraine IMF Bailout
  • Tony Benn Funeral
  • Obama meets Pope

BBC Hide, BBC Change?

BBC Shove It

BBC Shove It

I was hoping to get some screenshots of the search results, but since I started typing, the results are now driving the BBC up the rankings! (Initially, the BBC was not to be seen!)

I can only assume that this is due to some BBC editorial decisions following on from a myriad of postings onto the BBC FB and Twitter pages of photo memes and comments like this one.

Key Differences?

Comparing the military coldness Thatcher funeral, where the police outnumbered the spectators 3 to 1, where the BBC really struggles to show any pictures of anyone or anything that is not part of the establishment, where the thin crowds are strung out and kept back like kids at the zoo, Benn’s funeral was a large, well attended, peaceful affair, where politicos and commentators from all sides paid due respect to a man who always spoke his mind, and was for the most part, consistent.  There was a warmth and closeness at Benn’s which was noticeably lacking at Thatcher’s send off.

BBC Funeral of Thatcher

BBC Funeral of Thatcher

Here’s Benn’s summarised.  Follow the links through.  Thick crowds, not the thin cold lines at Thatchers, all guarded and marshalled by thousands of police.

You have to ask, why such a difference?  The answer is obvious, but you won’t find the BBC expanding on it.  Only latterly has this belated report come out, now snuggled down and buried under the 2 year fudge of an enquiry into energy business prices.  It says,

A large crowd holding trade union and anti-war banners lined the route of his funeral cortege.

There were tears and sustained applause as the procession arrived at St Margaret’s Church, yards from the House of Commons.

Benn's Funeral

Benn’s Funeral

So why the subterfuge?  Matt Cole in small print says,

You could tell Tony Benn’s coffin had arrived at St Margaret’s before you could see it – because loud spontaneous applause broke out.

Yeah right.  Too late Matt.  Just too damned late.  You should have less fear.  They cannot hurt you by speaking the truth out loud right from the off.  Now’s the time to take a hold of the BBC and make it what it should be – after all – we all pay for it.
