Ranil Wickremasinghe

Ranil Shriyan Wickremesinghe, MP (born March 24, 1949) is a Sri Lankan politician and current Leader of the Opposition. He was Prime Minister of Sri Lanka twice, from May 7, 1993 to August 19, 1994 and from December 9, 2001 to April 6, 2004. A member of the United National Party he was appointed as party leader in November 1994. He is also the leader of the United National Front, been appointed as the head of the alliance in October 2009.

Antecedents

Ranil Shriyan Wickremasinghe is the second son of Esmond and Nalini Wickremasinghe. Esmond Wickremasinghe was a press baron, an ex-Samasamajist and supremo of the Lake House group of newspapers. His paternal uncle Lakshman Wickremasinghe was a Bishop of the Church of Sri Lanka. His maternal line consisted of newspaper barons and landowners, the Wijewardenas, who were Sinhala Buddhists. His maternal grandfather was D. R. Wijewardena, the founder of the Lake House publishing empire a pro-independence activist and a financier of the independence movement. He was a nephew of J.R. Jayewardene, later President of Sri Lanka.

Education

Wickremesinghe was educated at Royal College, Colombo where he was a classmate and a good friend of Anura Bandaranaike, son of then Prime Minister Solomon Bandaranaike and Dinesh Gunawardena, son of socialist leader Philip Gunawardena. Wickremasinghe entered the Faculty of Law at the University of Ceylon, Colombo campus (now University of Colombo). After graduation he completed the law exams at the Sri Lanka Law College and took oaths as an advocate in 1972. Of all the Presidents and Prime Ministers of Sri Lanka, Wickremesinghe is the only person to graduate from a local university, the remainder either not attending university or having degrees from foreign universities.

Upeksha Swarnamali – (PABA)

Upeksha Swarnamali is a Sri Lankan model and television actress, perhaps best known for her role on the television series “PABA” broadcast on ITN. She participated in the reality dancing show Sirasa Dancing Stars. On 8 June 2008 she was eliminated. She became popular by the song “Chanchala”

Up and coming star Upeksha Swarnamali better known by the masses as Chanchala, will play the title role in Paba together with young star Amila Abeysekara and other seasoned stars.

Upeksha is the best Dancer in Sirasa Dancing Star Season 1, unfortunately lost that crown. She is the most good looking actress of Sri Lankan Tele Dramas.Upeksha will be seen in more powerful role in the movie ‘Bombs and Roses'(Bombs and Roses) directed by Anurudda Jayasinghe.

Beyond Nuclear Deterrence: A Complementary Protective Approach for Israel

By Dr. John Hagelin and Dr. David Leffler

The word “deterrence” comes from the Latin root meaning “fear.” In theory, war is deterred by instilling fear in potential enemies. To this end, Israel is said to have amassed tremendous destructive potential – allegedly 200 nuclear warheads. While this arsenal may incite fear in potential foes, the same fear encourages other countries like Iran to acquire nuclear weapons as well, further inflaming regional tensions and hatred. For this reason, no country committed to defense solely through destructive power is likely to generate a trust-based, peaceful atmosphere.

Diplomacy and economic sanctions likewise have not been sufficient to resolve the fear crisis – which is driven by human behavioral dynamics that cannot be controlled by such methods alone.

War and conflict are human problems requiring human solutions. The underlying cause of conflict is accumulated social stress. Therefore, neutralizing this collective stress would reduce the probability of hostilities by easing tensions between competing factions. A technology that accomplished such an outcome would have historic importance.

Today the military of Israel has an opportunity to address this fundamental cause of war by deploying a new, scientifically verified technology of defense beyond nuclear weapons.

A New, Safe Solution: Invincible Defense Technology

A proven new technology of defense is now available, called Invincible Defense Technology (IDT). This is a technology of national security, fully capable of defending Israel from any destructive technology, including nuclear weapons. The militaries of Mozambique and Ecuador have already applied IDT in order to defuse and eliminate conflict. It was applied by a civilian group in Israel to reduce warfare in Lebanon. Extensive research has confirmed its effectiveness. This new technology is easily implemented, highly cost-effective, and can prevent disruption and attack from outside or from within the country.

This new technology of defense is based upon the latest discoveries in the fields of physics, neuroscience, and physiology. Ultimately, IDT is based on the discovery of the unified field of all the laws of nature – the most fundamental and powerful level of nature’s dynamics. Technologies based upon this unified field of natural law have such concentrated power that they can render obsolete and irrelevant every objective technology and destructive means of defense.

Modern science has probed deeper levels of nature’s functioning, from the macroscopic world of classical physics to the world of the atom, then to the underlying field of the atomic nucleus, and then to the subnuclear levels. This exploration has culminated in the description of the unified field, the unified source of the diversified laws of nature governing the universe. From its purely self-interacting dynamics, the unified field creates from within itself all the particles and forces that compose the universe, and all the diversified streams of natural law governing the nuclear, atomic, molecular, and macroscopic levels. Because the unified field is vastly more powerful concentrated energy than any other level of nature’s dynamics, any technology of defense based upon the unified field is of historic importance.

Some might worry that IDT could be unsafe. The development of nuclear power has threatened humankind with nuclear conflagration and has cast a shadow over the safety and security of the whole world. Fortunately, there is no danger to humankind from IDT, which is a technology of the unified field. A technology of the unified field operates at the basis of the laws of nature governing the universe – a completely unified and holistic level of nature’s functioning. Because this level of natural law is holistic, it is naturally free of the negative, unanticipated side effects that accompany technologies based upon fragmented levels of natural law, such as nuclear weaponry.

The discovery of the unified field is a scientific development of the foremost order – a rigorous mathematical development based upon the Lagrangian of Superstring Field Theory, a highly compact mathematical formula that describes the self-interacting dynamics of unity at the basis of all the diverse laws of nature governing the universe. A technology based upon this complete, most comprehensive level of nature’s functioning is completely different from and vastly more powerful than defensive technologies based upon diversified levels of natural law – nuclear technologies, chemical technologies, biological technologies, electronic technologies – because these all utilize specific laws of nature in isolation. The nature of the unified field and it technologies reveals that invincibility in nature is available only at this superunified level.

The more fundamental levels of nature’s functioning offer technologies that are increasingly powerful. For example, a country armed only with conventional weaponry, such as explosives, cannot deter a nation equipped with nuclear weaponry. The principle here is that an invincible structure at one level of technology can be overwhelmed by a more fundamental level of technology. The ultimate application of this basic principle is that the unified field, at the superunified scale – the Planck scale of nature’s functioning – yields complete invincibility. Any less fundamental level of technology, including all current technologies of defense, is rendered obsolete through a technology of the unified field. And it is just such a technology that Israel needs to deploy today. (more…)
