When I am observed I behave differently Fearing my vulnerability Fearing constant attack My mind indistinguishable from reality I step onwards To self-correct my past errors As I passively slip through multiple dimensions With My Judgmental and Righteous Hands In this game, I have two hands One is for verity One is judgment One is bringing forward truth One is for corrective measures One is to bring alignment One is to teach a lesson As we transform onwards through this immense virtual space Night Walking with Weapons In distant places Everyone is hacking each other Everyone is grieving Everyone overconsuming There are those trying to reduce socio-economic gaps Where enforcement is distributed unequally And I keep search
Tired of traffic jams and exhaust fumes? A recently unveiled design concept for a "straddling bus," which lets cars drive underneath, can not only save road space but also help reduce air pollution. The passenger compartment spans two traffic lanes and sits high above the road surface on a pair of stilts,leaving the road clear for ordinary cars to pass underneath. Regardless of whether the the bus is moving or not, cars under 2 meters high can easily pass through. Running along special tracks, the bus can carry up to 1,400 passengers, and travel at a top speed of 60 kilometers per hour.

Within this era industrialised management practices will manufacture diminished potential. Diminish human potential in schools and society will stri
