Expo 2008: “Extreme Water” pavillion

The 22 metres high pavilion construction should start by March 2007. According to the designers this pavilion will show the devastating effects of natural disasters : Tsunamis, etc. From outside the building will have the shape of a Tsunami wave …once inside you will be put the safety belt and will start feeling the power of water…

I think it disrespectful of other participants to think they will try to scare visitors. If anything it is not for the internet to spread malicious rumours about other countries. My friend Richard is very carefully relocating farmers who have been displaced by hydro dam activity. This involves calculating how much water is gained by flooding fields in order to meet requirements. Once this calculation has been made the number of fields needed to be displaced will be known.
In the construction of urban buldings for example Richard has explained to me what would happen in an earthquake. The structure would stand but the side of the building would fall off.
Unfortunately I have tried for a better construction. The architects who plan such things would not like to spread their designs because testing is not yet complete. In Montreal earthquake proofing has been suitably invented but cannot be used until the system has been proven.
These are complicated affairs for
real designers to ponder about. A leak due to earthquake must be considered and ample resistance dams provided by competant designers for such emergencies. Since no wall thickness is at issue I am sure that barriers for such contingencies can be arranged.

Anyway the problems of a dam are just minor compared to the results of climate change and weather patterns. Obviously these are major issues that should frighten people because if anything we can still relocate people. There is nothing wrong with generating fear but how we as authorities handle that fear is a problem and perhaps the subject for a future world fair. At what point and under what circumstances do we place a barrier, instal an army and how much tolerance do we permit. I have seen Hadrian and Antonine had certain accomplishments and difficulties. Sometimes unfortunately we must build bigger than we have ever designed, stronger than conceivable, and where possible forget about it because we cannot accomodate the change or afford it. This is what your water fair should be dealing with. As well as relations to earth air and radiation, water is a small part of the environmemnt. As I told a recent lecturer from the Channel Islands designs at McGill everything interacts. The old Christian notions do not hold. Certainly Priestley's chemical charts should be seen in light of dealing with world issues. Than there are unknown kabbalistic and other Hebrew stresses. Especially the old dialectic should not be hidden in piece meal pavilions that define world ecological zones like 'savannas'. Symmetry also creates tension. On mega scales as seen in the 1937 Paris fair between Soviet Union and Germany. This led to World War 2. Ancient foo dogs properly marked political relationships. Temples had logos and markings but the Bauhaus, shabbati zevi, and the borduas manifesto favoured emotion, passion and chaos which has kept its practitioners away from reasonable and measured perceptions of form, of renaissance perspectives, and leonardos quantities. Qualities must be appreciated but as with the Olympics within measureable quantitative system for competion and judgment. The Zaragoza fair is making some advances to incorporate liquid ideology, one which does not sediment burn or restructure, but the renewal, recycling, and reuse of water is an important issue. On Earth how much fresh water untouched is truly available. Canada is a curious place. We have more fresh water than any country in the world but can't take care of our INUITS. Propoganda is for fashist countries and bureaus.
I hope you can do better than that with your cathedrals and swaSTIKAS AND baSILIKAS. Pretty designs by Mr. SAVADOR DALI try to save your Catholic origins but remember the British, the wall of Giberish and to not get in any brawl-ter with the Walters! Walter Disney or Walter Lantz-Armstrong!

I think your language is what causes you SPAIN!Try esperanto. You see two can play the playa and the play-to (teau). Next time the murderous Romans kill a Sicilian they wood beware of the Magi and his friend the Shah's nephew!

It is 2007 my friends. Why not turn your attention to pyrates from the pyranees rather than zebra muscles. You wouldn't know what to do with air born malaria never mind submersibles. Hitler could have taught you that!

Don't get scared my wee Europeans of a continentalist invasion, for I don't intend to scar you with a pearl harbor only to prepare you for a party the likes of which the pyranees has not known since the days the amazons traversed the globe. Now there are scotties (not the tissues) who even claim that there never were Amazons, but what then is a pirrahna-ha, ha fish, a comedy fesival.
A moustachioed cat fish a la Dali.
Kapish! I enjoy a good horse chuckle and Pablo Gargallo, no thanks!

NOW IF YOU REALLY REALLY WANT TO COMPLAIN ABOUT EARTHQUAKES WHY NOT SPEAK TO OUR TREMBLING MAYOR TREMBLAY.

POETRY AND MANIFESTOS SO TOUCHING.

MOTHER EARTH IS WATCH THE VIRGIN MARY. SHE IS NOT PLEASED. SHE IS NOT SURE OF HER SISTERS ACTIONS. WHAT IS SHE UP TO.

WHEN THE JEWS TRIED TO CREATE A JEWISH STATE CALLED ISRAEL THEY DID NOT CONSULT THE HEBREWS OF NARBONNE. MELECH HAYUHUDIM. THEY DISTURBED PALESTINIANS AND KILLED A BRITISH (ALLIE) SOLDIER. THOUGHT THIS WAS A JOKE.

NOT A JOKE - JUST LIKE WALL OF WALTER IS NOT A JOKE, LIKE WALL OF GIBERISH IS NOT A WALL OF GIBER-PISH! OR A WALL OF FISH!

WHEN THE JEWISH INVADERS CAME,A RICH PALESTINIAN WOMAN WAS PUTTING ON HER STOCKINGS. INSTEAD OF RUNNING AWAY IMMEDIATELY SHE COMPLETED THE ACT BUT GOT CAUGHT. ACCORDING TO A JEW WHO FILLED THE RICH PALESTINIAN COUPLE'S HOME WITH DISPLACED JEWS SHE WAS A STUPID WOMAN FOR NOT RUNNING AWAY FROM THE JEWS. SHE WAS STUPID - AFTER THE END OF WORLD WAR TWO. MAYBE SHE WAS NOT SO STUPID AS THE SOVIET - COMMUNIST NATIONALIZERS - HUH!

IN THE DESERT, WE DRANK THE MORNING DUE-JEW, WE SALUTE THE ORANGE JULEP REVOLUTION, THAT IS JEWS WITH EGGS. I AM NO SPRING CHICKEN BUT I DO KNOW ABOUT SPRING WATER. THAT IS POETIC JUST-ICE.

AT EXPO 67 I REMEMBER THE FLUME RIDE AT LA RONDE. DO YOU HAVE ONE OF THOSE? IT WAS DONE ON HOLLOWED OUT LOGS.
ON STAR TREK WITH WILLIAM SHATNER IT BEGINS: CAPTAINS LOG!
WHY NOT HAVE A BUNCH OF GERMAN LINGUISTS DANCE ON A HOT LOG. LET IT ROLL BABY.

OH YOU WANT A VIENNA ROLL! HOW ABOUT A HAM-BURGER THAN.
AN ICE-BURGER WOULD BE BETTER?

THERE ONCE WAS AN OLD MAN WHO CAME TO REST IN THE CAVE OF A PREGNANT BEAR OR MAYBE SHE WAS HIBERNATING,
HE THOUGHT SHE HAD PROTECTED HIM FROM THE WEATHER. IT WAS THE SITE OF HIS FIRST BERG-OR CASTLE. RESEARCHERS OF HADRIANS WALL THINK THAT BERGS ARE THE EQUIVALENT OF CHESTERS, ROMAN ARMY CAMPS. I WOOD NOT KNOW...QUE SARAH SARAH, WHATEVER THERE WAS...WAS...BUT I HAVE DONE ALOT OF RESEARCH IN 100 MONTREAL LIBRARIES, THIS WAS NOT ALEX-SANDER-IA SARAH SARAH, AND KNOW ENOUGH ABOUT JUVENILE DELINQUENTS.
THREE GORGES DAM OR THREE GORGEOUS DAMES, AS I TELL MY STUDENTS YOU CAN NOT HAVE AN ISLAND WITHOUT WATER AND BANKS WITHOUT WATER BUT A GORGE CAN BE BRIDGED.

I am not an extremist. I am having an expo dream in an extreme water pavilion. Sometimes I dream of world fairs.
I label my dreams of world fairs so as to distinguish them from those of Jesus leading his flox of sheep, and Jesus leading his oxen.
I have a seperate category for leonardos also such as da vinci and cohen.
I have created several new expos in my dreams. Number two was quite exciting since it included a minirail ride. Number three was unusual because it was a more rustic fair and I came face to face with the door of a windmill. This was most unusual because I did not see them from afar like Don Quiote.
I have a friend who paints his dreams. There is one with lions including atomic clouds and happy pastures. This is disturbing. It reminds me of the Dali paintings of arabs and Christian militias.
I think I will paint a special Hebrew tableau-ronde for Quebec 400, perhaps with an under the table northwest passage. Poker or bingo; joker or bozo.

My mother was Mary, every bit as real as Montreal. She was Mary M----- of Montreal. She died in 1977 when asked if she believed there was a Jesus. She might be Mary Magedallen. For sure she is the Island. My father was Jack, like the bridge Jacques Cartier,like the disco-ver of Quebec.

Lets celebrate with a green disco, a disco-vert, the discovery of the new world, the sighting of green land! Voyage up the St. Laurent-Lawrence-Lorenzo Sea to the beginning of the canatas, the river, the cape diamond, the plains of abraham, the moses and modern city of Quebec.

No a la Expo Zaragoza 2008 said...

I won't recommend anyone coming to Zaragoza in order to visit this Exposition. It has nothing to do with sustainable development; it has everything to do with unscrupulous businesses.

Expo Zaragoza 2008 is unsustainable in terms of ecological, economic, social, environmental, legal and cultural. The Ebro river ecosystem is being destroyed: cutting down thousand of trees, irresponsible dredgings in order to allow ships sail, cutting the bottom of the Stone Bridge medieval archs, etc.

The experience of previous universal exhibitions (and that of Zaragoza is not: it is `international', ie, a second class exposition) and the most recent Forum in Barcelona, showed that these events are ruinous to the Treasury, but very profitable for construction companies and real state speculators.

Politicians have been lying with a straight face for years, in order to get population's support for this project. However, people is increasingly aware that they've been cheated.

I could go on and on. Please visit http://www.expo-no.es , where there is a lot of information (mostly in Spanish, but there is also some in English).
