For several years the European Union, the largest regional trading bloc in the world, has been trying to liberalize its energy market, replacing the markets of its 27 member states with a single continentwide market for electricity and gas. The first phase of liberalization went into effect in June 2007. When fully implemented, the ability of energy producers to sell electricity and gas across national borders will increase competition. The road toward the creation of a single EU energy market, however, has been anything but easy. Many national markets are dominated by a single enterprise, often a former state-owned utility. Electricitie de France, for example, has an 87 percent share of that country’s electricity market. Injecting competition into such concentrated markets will prove difficult.
To complicate matters, most of these utilities are vertically integrated, producing, transmitting, and selling power. These vertically integrated producers have little interest in letter other utilities use their transmission grids to sell power to end users, or in buying power from other producers. For the full benefits of competition to take hold, the EU recognizes that utilities need to be split into generation, transmission, and marketing companies so that the business of selling energy can be separated from the business of producing it and transmitting it. Only then, so the thinking goes, will independent power marketing companies be able to buy energy from the cheapest source, whether it is within national borders or elsewhere in the EU, and resell it to consumers, thereby promoting competition.
For now, efforts to mandate the deintegration of utilities are some way off. In February 2007 national energy ministers from the different EU states rejected a call from the European Commission, the top competition body in the EU, to break apart utilities. Instead the energy...

Do You Know

...DO YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE? Exodus 3:9-14 9 And now the cry of the Israelites has reached me, and I have seen the way the Egyptians are oppressing them. 10 So now, go. I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people the Israelites out of Egypt." 11 But Moses said to God, "Who am I, that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?" 12 And God said, "I will be with you. And this will be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain." 13 Moses said to God, "Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, 'The God of your fathers has sent me to you,' and they ask me, 'What is his name?' Then what shall I tell them?" 14 God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: 'I AM has sent me to you.' " Hmm. I have to be honest. As I rested my spirit on these verses, the lord asked me this question “do you know who I am?” I said “yes lord” I have to be honest, at that point nothing came to my spirit. this has been one of those weeks where I've had a hard time resting my spirit to hear from the Lord.... but I am pretty sure I know who my lord is... I said again "yes Lord" The Lord asked me again… “do you know who I am? I said…. “yes Lord” Again… know further response to the Lord.

Theaetetus

...enter the house, and the dialogue is read to them by a servant. Euclid. Have you only just arrived from the country, Terpsion? Terpsion. No, I came some time ago: and I have been in the Agora looking for you, and wondering that I could not find you. Euc. But I was not in the city. Terp. Where then? Euc. As I was going down to the harbour, I met Theaetetus-he was being carried up to Athens from the army at Corinth. Terp. Was he alive or dead? Euc. He was scarcely alive, for he has been badly wounded; but he was suffering even more from the sickness which has broken out in the army. Terp. The dysentery, you mean? Euc. Yes. Terp. Alas! what a loss he will be! Euc. Yes, Terpsion, he is a noble fellow; only to-day I heard some people highly praising his behaviour in this very battle. Terp. No wonder; I should rather be surprised at hearing anything else of him. But why did he go on, instead of stopping at Megara? Euc. He wanted to get home: although I entreated and advised him to remain he would not listen to me; so I set him on his way, and turned back, and then I remembered what Socrates had said of him, and thought how remarkably this, like all his predictions, had been fulfilled. I believe that he had seen him a little before his own death, when Theaetetus was a youth, and he had a memorable conversation with him, which he repeated to me when I came to Athens; he was full of admiration of his genius, and said that he would...

Love

...come you have enough time to go out and make other girls fall in love with you, but you don't have enough time to pay attention to the girl who already is. 2. You really know you love someone when all you want is for them to be happy, even if that means that you are not a part of it. 3. Love hurts when you break up with someone. It hurts even more when someone breaks up with you. But love hurts the most when the person you love has no idea what so ever. 4. The worst way to miss someone is when they are right beside you and yet you know you can never have them. 5. I love him but I cannot show it, want him but he cannot know it, need him but I know it'll never be, if only he needed me. 6. I get the best feeling in the world when you say hi to me, or even smile, because I know even if just for a second, I crossed your mind. 7. I wonder, what I could Do or say to make him like me. I wonder, what or who I need to be, to be his. I wonder, when just being me will be enough. 8. Should I smile cause were friends, or should I cry cause that's all well ever gonna be. 9. I look at him as a friend, then I realized I loved him. 10. We are afraid to care to much, for fear that the other person does not care at all. 11. If you love something, set it free if it comes back, it was meant to be. If it continues to fly, let it soar, have faith that God has something better in store. 12.

Christianity

...Can I get a Witness? Acts 4: 18-20 So they called them and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. 19 But Peter and John answered and said to them, n“Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. 20 oFor we cannot but speak the things which pwe have seen and heard.” You judge for yourselves whether it’s right in God’s sight to obey you rather than God, but we can’t help speaking about what we have seen and what we have heard. For the time that we have to share today, I want to talk on the subject Can I get a Witness? Can I get a witness? It is obvious from your response, that from the announcement of that statement, that you have heard that question before. If you have been in church for about 3 and half days you probably have had that question raised before in some worship experience. For without doubt preachers across the country stand in pulpits over and over again, time and time again and ask this question in the midst of their proclamation and presentation, Can I get a witness? It is when that interrogative is raised that the proclaimer is wondering if the congregation to whom he or she is speaking is in tune and in touch with the message that is being conveyed. Every now and then if the congregation seems to get a little too quiet in church, if they seem a little too disconnected from the message, the messenger would pause parenthetically and ask the question can I get a witness. It is when......

On the Night of Your Birth

...On the Night You Were Born II Kings 17:6-14 and Luke 15:17-24 Rev. Dr. Zina Jacque August 29, 2010 Beloved of God, do you know, have you ever wondered what happened on the night you were born. My family story holds that somewhere around the end of August in 1956 Dr. E.L.C. Broomes told my Mother not to get her hopes too high. After all, this was her fifth pregnancy, and though she had finally moved beyond the 30 week mark, she still had many weeks to go and she should not get her hopes too high. There was no guarantee this baby would make it. But then, on the evening of October 30th, sometime after dinner, something within my mother moved, something within her said, it is time and all the world stood still for my parents, all of the world held its breath. I do not know what thoughts ran through my mother’s mind or my father’s heart in those hours before I was born; but I know once I had arrived, once they held me in their arms, they began to rejoice. Nancy Tillman, in her book On the Night You Were Born, gives voice to the rhythm of words that might have been spoken on night you and I were born:1 On the night you were born the moon smiled with wonder. The stars peeked in to see you, all safe and tucked under And the night wind whispered and called you by name And said with a sigh, life will never be the same So enchanted with you were the wind and the rain They too whispered the sound of your wonderful name. Your name sailed past houses, high on the breeze Over oceans and......

Love

...between you and me, what I’m gonna do is ask him for one more minute then I’ll hug you as tight as I could and tell Death, “Let’s go. I’m ready!”  0102. I miss you not because you miss me but because you taught me how to feel the emptiness when you’re not here. I love you not because you love me but because you taught me everything I never knew existed before. 0103. When you leave, remember the place where you left me cause I’ll still be there waiting for you. But if you go back and I’m no longer there, it means that I love you too much so I went to search for you.  0104. It’s a risk having you cause it’s like stealing an angel from heaven. If I’d be punished for that, I’d rather accept it than give you back cause I know that I’d never have another you in my life again.  0105. I dreamed of a wedding of elaborate elegance, a church filled with flowers and friends. I asked him what kind of wedding he wished for, he said, “One that will make you my wife.”  0106. I’m not asking you to stay for the rest of my life, stay as long as you want. No why’s, no how’s, no but’s, no promises. Just stay. It’s more than enough.  0107. I’m not sure what I am to you and what we are right now but what really matters is you’re so damn special to me and I mean my life only for you.

Friendship

...I just hate it that today is one of those days when I don’t have nothing to do, so the only thing left in the table is read, and since I can’t do that the other only thing I can do is write. Today I felt like writing about friendship, the real friendship, so here goes nothing: I never ever got the true meaning of friendship, until I started losing it in some way. It isn’t that I lost it completely; it’s just that my friends and I have grown apart and that kind of sucks. But before that I always wondered what friendship really is and what it really means. And now being in a different school and not with the same friends and growing apart with my friends, I asked myself that question again and I think that maybe I have found the real answer. Being in a new place with new people, new faces it is hard to fit in. And this especially when the others know each other already. So you have to start everything from the beginning , you start to tell everyone your story, your favorite things and the reasons why you like them, but they still don’t get it, they still don’t get the reason why you are who you are, and they want to change you. And then is when you start to change, because you think you aren’t good enough and that maybe that is the reason why you don’t fit in. And you change everything from yourself, and by doing this changes you start to lose your real friends, you start to lose a little bit of yourself every day, you are not the same old you, the one with big strange......

Eeee

...The Final Quest by Rick Joyner The Hordes of Hell Are Marching (Taken from "The Morning Star," Vol. 5, Nos 2-4, by Rick Joyner) The Evil Army I saw a demonic army so large that it stretched as far as I could see. It was separated into divisions, with each carrying a different banner. The foremost and most powerful divisions were Pride, Self righteousness, Respectability, Selfish Ambition, and Unrighteous Judgment, but the largest of all was Jealousy. The leader of this vast army was the Accuser of the Brethren himself. I knew that there were many more evil divisions beyond my scope of vision, but these were the vanguard of this terrible horde from hell that was now being released against the church. The weapons carried buy this horde had names on them: the swords were named Intimidation; the spears were named Treachery; and their arrows were named Accusations, Gossip, Slander and Faultfinding. Scouts and smaller companies of demons with such names as Rejection, Bitterness, Impatience, Un-forgiveness and Lust were sent in advance of this army to prepare for the main attack. I knew in my heart that the church had never faced anything like this before. The main assignment of this army was to cause division. It was sent to attack every level of relationship-churches with each other, congregations with their pastors, husbands and wives, children and parents, and even children with each other. The scouts were sent to locate the openings in churches, families or individuals that......

OBAMA:  Yeah?  Exciting?  It’s good.         Well, I want to start by thanking Vice Chancellor Price for, number one, that very kind introduction and for his words, but more importantly for all the work that he’s doing at this phenomenal university.         I also want to send greetings and say hello and thank you to Dr. Ramphele.  She is fabulous.  (Laughter.)  We got to talk outside.  We could have been talking for hours, but we’ll do that later.  (Laughter.)  But I am grateful to have her join us today and more importantly for her lifetime of leadership and sacrifice for this country.  She is a true model.  Her generation is the generation that we all will be standing -- whose shoulders we will stand on.  So I am excited to have her talk to all of you.         But before I begin, I want to recognize yesterday’s passing of Kader Asmal, and I want everyone here to know that the thoughts and prayers of my family and my country are with all of you as you mourn another of this nation’s great anti-apartheid leaders.           As I just said, his generation fought its battles so that today’s young people, all of you, no matter where you come from or what you look like, could have the opportunities to shape your own futures and the futures of this country and this world.         And that's why I like to talk with all of you young people, and that's what I want to talk with you......

You Are What You Think

...You are what you think The truth about life is the truth about ourselves. If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the results of a hundred battles. In life, we go through many battles, not necessarily the real ones, but the battles with our own problems and others around us. Here we will see a little how to have strength, know ourselves better and then apply the knowledge to life. It is really important to know ourselves, to know how we will react to the challenges we face, and to have a good image of ourselves, since we are what we think. First, it is important that we have a good example to look up to and learn with. We will talk about heroes as they are a good example. A hero is a person who does something special, or out of the ordinary in order to help others. It could also be someone who is admired for a characteristic about them, be it physical or mental. They are individuals that normal everyday people can look up to. This being the case, a superhero is nothing more than someone who helps many people. We have always looked up to our heroes. Some of us become heroes and that is thanks to the strength we take from them. They are great examples for kids and grownups. The humanity should keep taking the good things heroes have to share with us, and apply them in our lives. Second, “Having control of yourself”, is very important. Then we know how to control ourselves, our fears, and our excitement. We shouldn’t be blocked from doing something...

The Depths of Life

...life has its own persona and these personas are represented by different shades of colours. In life there are different types of person with different personas too. People who you meet for the first time or you have met already but didn’t much stayed in your life have the shade of a lighter blue, which signifies they are on the near part of the shore. Either you or the people didn’t get to know each other very well. They’ve been only part of your life for a week or much shorter and you rarely see each other. People, who you meet and sooner you called friends, got the shade of a light-dark blue. They are people who know you, but you don’t really show the real you. It’s like you’re in the middle of the deep and shallow part of the ocean somewhere in that zone. Friends are the greatest gifts that God gave us. They always support us when we’re down, but those people who you show your real self are called best friends. People who belong to the darker shade are the people who you show your real self and who you trust the most. These persons know you well. That they even know what kind of person you are, they know what you like, they know what you do, and they almost know everything about you. Example of this person is your family and your one and only best friend. Family is the one who we ran to when we don’t know how to cope up with the problem and when we are like a baby that needs to cry out loud.
