THE MISSING TWIN TOWERS 09/12/01

  • 911
    On 09/12/01 I walked from 14th street and Union Square down to the hole in the ground that used to be the Twin Towers. It was an eerie and surrealistic experience. Check points with soldiers and policemen were on every block. Somehow I found a way to get to within two blocks of the center of the destruction. The light had a strange brownish glow due to a mixture of the heavy particles of the disentegrated buildings filtering the winter sunlight. Many people were wearing face masks to help them breathe. I was struck by the nearly universal dazed and shocked expressions of a multitude of awe struck onlookers like myself. However, as bad as it was, I was also struck by the noble activity of hundreds - or was it thousands - of workers and volunteers that were quietly, and methodically attending to the grim work of cleaning up this horrible lower manhatten "Pearl Harbor" mess. Returning to Union Square I came upon a hastily erected evolving memorial. On subequent days I came upon similar memorials, most notably a large one in Grand Central Station. What most stirred me were pictures of kin who were unaccounted for as yet, apparently posted by relatives and friends, desperately clinging to the hope that their loved ones had some escaped the horror and might be recognized by someone, anyone, who would take the time to carefully scan their names and faces and. if indeed spotted, would hopefully notify them. It was quite shaking to have to face up to the brutal fact that nothing is absolutely secure - life is tenuous at best. Perhaps all that can be done at such times is to try to remain steady and, if so inclined, to record such occurrences as objectively as is humanly possible.

AUTUMN IN NEW YORK

  • AUTUMN TRIUMPH
    I was feeling depressed yesterday morning. Additionally I was restless and somewhat agitated. My body wanted movement. I looked outside noticing that the fall colors were shimmering flooded with sunlight. I picked up my small canon camera and decided to take a walk around the neighborhood. The walk was magical. The pictures that follow speak for themselves. After only a few pictures it was obvious that my depression completely lifted. My conclusion is that immersion in nature - any season - is likely to be the best natural anti-depressant.

NATURE'S GLORY

  • New York City Fruit Stand  #3
    What I most love about nature is it is so natural. It is what it is. It is so full of beauty. It gives so much and asks for nothing in return. Most of the flowers and yard photogaphs are a theme and variation from flowers and tomatos I plant each spring. I enjoy watching the buds ripening and opening up. I particularly enjoy the uniqueness of each flower as it unfolds sometime mid summer. As I zoom in for closeups I sense these colorful mysteries speak to some elemental and most essential best prrt of me. As I focus upon the details of each unique flower, or fruit, or tree, or mixture of shadow and light, or glitter, or sparkles, I feel as connected to being alive and resonant with my natural 'friends' as at any time or with any people in my life. I appreciate the democratic spirit clusters of flowers have for themselves collectively and individually. They seem to celebrate being alive as they unself consciously display their radiance for whomever wishes to take note - or not. They seem utterly indifferent whether anyone cares or not. They don't fuss or get irritated as they 'graciously' make room for each other. I can appreciate what Van Gogh felt in the open sunlight painting his sun flowers and hay stalks - giddily - passionately grasping for the right words as he expressed his feelingsin his letters to Theo {his brother}. Observing nature with direct perception, not having to find words to describe what is experienced, is a tonic for me - a being who derives his lively hood from systematically searching for just right words.

TIMES SQUARE, ETC.

  • Washington Square Arch Newly Litup
    Times square by day or night pulsates with excitement, noise, and electricity. If you are bored, or under stimulated go to Broadway and 42nd street to be atmospherically reinvigorated. No need to spend a fortune going to usually dissappointing theatre - just stand on a corner in Times Square and watch the passing show - fixed or in motion. A well crafted building is a joy to behold. Equally so are machines like the Metro North Railway trains, stations, tracks, wires virtually all of the trappings that go into making a transportation system. So too - unusual scenes such as colorful canoes glittering amongst tall green pine trees on a bright sun filled summer day delights my senses and stirs my soul. There is so much not to like but it is all worth it when my senses are stimulated. It is very true: you can't appreciate the light unless you can take note of the darkness.

For Sale 45,000 BPD Oil
Refinery with 171 .8 acres of property at a

bargain price of US$21M

Golden opportunity to purchase existing oil refinery situated on 171 .8 acres of landlocated 50 miles from Houston, Texas.

The refinery can produce 45,000 bpd Gasoline (3grades), Jet Fuel, Diesel .
The facility is situated on 171 .8 acres of property out of which approximately 120acres of land are undeveloped and can be utilized for expansion to build a largerrefinery .

Refinery was shut down in 1986 due to the severe downturn in oil industry knowas "Oil Bust of 86" . After shut down refinery provided storage and blendingservices for a while, but never put back into refining operation .
The culmination of the years that have passed and circumstances have now
provided a "Golden Opportunity" to recapture refining facility at fraction of the
current value .

The facility has a number of "Down Stream Units" designed to produce maximum yield of Gasoline, Jet Fuel, and Diesel . These Units are :

1 . 5700 B/D High Pressure Platformer
2 . 2500 Low Pressure Platformer
3 . 3,000 B/D Hydrocraker
4. 10,000 B/D Naphta Desulferizer
5 . 1200 Udex Unit
6 . 500 B/D Hexane Unit

The refinery also has 35 tanks, which comprise a total storage capacity of 910,000barrels. The refinery has current value of $40 .5 Million in its current "idle"condition .

The refinery located in close proximity to two crude oil pipelines that can deliverup to 120,000 BPD as well as three production pipelines that can deliver product asfar away as Ohio, Chicago and New York. These pipelines in addition to the company's 30 miles pipelines that is connected to……………

Environmental permits are available for the refinery based on EPA regulation standards for compliance to meet environmental laws.



Delivery of oil

The delivery of crude oil can be made on crude oil pipelines from oil producing
sources throughout the continental USA, Canada and Mexico then shipped directlyto the refinery's oil storage tank farm . The crude oil also can be off-loaded innearby receiving ports, with carrying capacity supertankers from 500,000 bbls to2,500,000 bbls. The ports are deep-sea ocean facilities to accommodate the supertankers from all over the world, and include the nearby ports of Port Arthur and Port Neches located in the Gulf of Mexico .

The off-loading of crude can then be sending directly by pipeline from the port tothe oil storage tank farm of mentioned refinery .

Refinery production units can be refurbished units to minimize cost . The estimatedcost to bring the refinery operation into full production of 45,000 BPD would be inthe vicinity between $50M to $65M . Estimates of a construction cost are available from a major refinery construction companies to make this refinery a turnkey
operation .

To put the refinery into full operation and production of 45,000 BPD will take
between 9 to 12 month. Once in full operation refinery shall produce profit ranging from $75M to $160M per year depending on a crack spread .
The project margins are realistic and are based on cost of oil in the year of 2006
Below is projected profits at different crack spreads for different weeks and month of 2006
