That New Russian Fighter Plane Design Sure Looks Familiar!

The Russians now have a new fighter plane to compete with the United States’ F-22 Raptor, and the Russia Stealth Aircraft also a fifth generation fighter plane looks like the real thing, or is it Memorex? Indeed, the newest fighter aircraft design from Russia looks awfully similar to one of the America versions of the stealth fighter which competed for the JSF Contract.

Many folks marvel at the Russian aerospace designs and rocket technology, and yet, when looking closer things look eerily familiar, specifically many appear to be outright copies of US aerospace designs. This is well-known by military analysts. Indeed, not long ago, I met a post cold war US-Russian scholar, and I just had to ask him about all this. His name is Jesse Giraldo, perhaps you’ve heard of him.

Here is the question I asked Mr. Giraldo; “Are you concerned with the new Stealth Fighter copy of Northrop’s JSF design bid entry into the Joint-Strike-Fighter fly-off, in Russia; ” and here is what he had to say about the whole thing;

Not at all. In fact I find it a bit humorous that this stealth fighter was built in direct response the Air Forces F-22 raptor. It’s juvenile but it honestly just sounds like Putin needed a new 5th generation fighter jet to “one up the west”. I suppose it is crucial to remind the world that Russia is still capable of challenging the U.S in terms of military but I really doubt the jet lives up to the fanfare. The claims he’s making of improved maneuverability and performance at 1/3 of the cost also strikes me as dubious. Of course I doubt the Russian military will be releasing any technical data to backup any of these grandiose statements so all anyone can really do right now is speculate.

Indeed in my opinion, I do agree with Giraldo, and believe the design is good with thrust vectoring, but I question the small vertical (angled) stabilizers, and flutter challenges, we will see. Of course, it is a copy of the Northrop design. You know the Russians seem to have made a version of almost every major aerospace design the US has ever come up with, including their version of our Space Shuttle, B-1, etc. Giraldo agreed stating; “Russia seems to take great pleasure in reverse engineering our creations.”

Yes, and the cold war was really all about “our Germans vs. their Germans,” as all those scientists in NAZI Germany either went to Russia or came here. Well, at least they seem to enjoy each other’s company in the Space Efforts? I’ve been at least a little impressed with Russian innovation over the years, considering they don’t have as much to work with as our abundance and wealth here provides. It’s just too bad their spies are busy stealing all of our technology. And let’s not even talk about the Chinese and their intellectual property thievery. Please consider all this.

Poverty Fighters – Home Based Business, Charity, Or Both?

The Poverty Fighters are raising money for charities, they are helping people making money from home and they are putting together what they are calling “The Road To End Poverty Tours”

So would you call them a home based business, a charity, or both?

Some are calling them a charity because of how much they are focused on ending poverty. They actually have a really good plan to end poverty.

Have you ever heard the saying “If you give a man a fish he will eat for a day, But if you teach a man to fish he will eat for a lifetime”?

You could say the Poverty Fighters took this saying and put it to work, because that is almost exactly what they plan on doing. Their “Road To End Poverty Tour” is going to travel the world teaching those in poverty how to make money with no money, they are going to also teach and help those in poverty how to build their very own successful businesses.

They are also giving at least $2 from every paying member that joins them to charity and they are on track to hit 250,000 members in their first year in business, that means they will have raised $500,000 USD to give to charities in their first year in business.

So looking at these two aspects of the Poverty Fighters you could say they are a charity.

But if you look at them from the home based business side of things we see something really creative that no other home based business or work from home opportunity would dream of doing. The Poverty Fighters are giving away free level 8 positions and all the tools you will need to succeed online.

But the one thing that the Poverty Fighters are doing that no other home based business is doing is they give you everything you need to be successful without even asking for any money up front. They don’t ask you to leave any kind of payment information they don’t even ask for your name!

They have so much faith in what they are doing and in their members that they say try everything and if you really like the program and want to help make a difference then make a small one time investment.

But if you decide you don’t like the program and everything they give you, then you don’t have to pay anything and they let you keep everything.

So how is this working out for them, are people actually paying?

They say about 95% of their members are paying members and as mentioned earlier they are on track to hitting 250,000 members in their first year in business.

So what are the Poverty Fighters a home based business, a charity or both?

Looking at what we now know I would say they are more of a charity than anything, but they don’t ask for donations! Is it possible to be a home based business and a charity?

You will have to make the decision for yourself.
