Re: Yellow Nape Law

The FBO staffer call Julio and stated that the King Air 350 is ready, sir. He leaned in and said that he would see Frederick Monday morning, bye. The 350 lifted out and headed North by Northwest. His phone rang and it was Carlos thanking him for the quick turn around on the contract. The Marina here wants to use it in place of their current, any problem with than, Julio. If it buys you a few favors while you’re there, not a problem. But I have a favor to ask, Carlos. Ask away brother. I have a client that is a Tesla nut any chance you can hang-out in the local gathering place and pick-up on odds and ends. Not looking for intel, just listen to local gossip. Not a problem Julio! Later. Julio elected to run another Tesla search, but this time add only ‘Punta Arenas’ to keep the search low key.

The King Air 250 pulled up in front of the South Africa Mealy International hanger. As it shut-down the FBO staff blocked the wheels and opened the hatch for James and his staff to exit. A minute later the fuel truck arrived and topped the fuel tanks. James and staff where guided inside where the Mealy Hanger Manager waited for them. Once in the conference room, she closed the door and welcomed them. She provided new identification papers with their work visas, and Mealy business cards, in which she added that because of the general unrest, it would be best not to discuss that you are a recent arrival. We will be shopping with you to lessen your exposure. She provided them with several forms to complete and stated that she would be back after meeting with the pilot. The pilot reported that it was a very clean pick-up and the facility had no one that he saw and with the exception of the staff’s vehicle, which they parked in the hanger, there was no other vehicles evident. She thanked him and signed his flight form. The pilot asked if Mealy had any King Air 350’s available for sale? The Manager stated that she would check when she speaks to headquarters next, as she noted his request.

Frederick re-read Dr. Saltinus Amazonas paper. His amazement continued regarding the simple solution to the effects of G-forces. He developed an open search and also a Patent search and was shocked to find both failed to produce any results. He found an email address and develop a proposal regarding first filing a Patent to protect the technology and an offer to represent the technology to the clients of Yellow Nape Law, International and Mealy international. After sending, he quickly provided a brief for his other Partners.

Early Monday morning, Julio was headed South, South-easterly, near completing another uneventful flight, as he reviewed the projects he had completed over the weekend. He then turned his attention to Priscilla’s communications this morning. In addition to the aircraft that she had moved last week, she had included staff members as part of those flights. Great cost saver, Julio mused. Julio quickly reviewed the abilities of the staff and found that eight had experience with electrical assemblies. He texted both Priscilla and Frederick that this should be confirmed as it may solve our assembly of at least the European deliveries. His phone rang, it was his Brother.

Re: Yellow Nape Law

As each of the three Yellow Nape German hangers accepted their inbound flight from Northern Africa, Priscilla requested a detail interview with each staff members on those flights regarding not only their position as part of Mealy International /Yellow Nape, but other abilities that could be of advantage for the organization’s future growth. Understanding that each location, Frankfurt, Hamburg and München client base contributes heavily as part of our two huge project and our want to continue such business opportunities into the future. Having inhouse staff with electronics and other skills will be helpful.

As Julio entered his office, he found Frederick waiting for him. I hope you had a restful weekend my friend. Thank-you for the signed document set for Phoenix project. I have spoken with finance and they tell me that we can begin buying components ASAP. As an FYI, your idea to use Staff from the North Africa hangers truly helps with those projects. I have received calls from both Governments and provided estimated costs around the system numbers you had put together and Switzerland is fully onboard with the Netherlands asking about stepping into the project. I defined a stepped approach, which would start with a system the size of Switzerland and adding later. I did tell them that would add to the overall project costs. But we have all three projects confirmed, with two waiting signed contracts.

One of James’ staff was not happy about being limited in his movements from the Hanger area. James spoke to him, but he continual to become ever more agitated. James motioned to the Hanger Manager that a problem was developing. The Manager contacted security, they quickly arrived and James suggested he be arrested as whatever the issue, it was far more than the stress of the moment. Seconds later, a shot rang-out as James felt the searing heat, than pain from a bullet as it past though his left shoulder area as it twisted him around pushing him off his feet nearly into the hanger manager. Security physically took the shooter to the floor and handcuffed him taking his revolver.

In frisking him, they found his phone, a folding knife of size and a small notebook. Security handed the phone and notebook to the hanger manager. She quickly searched the notebook, finding contact numbers with names, and actions to be completed? She called Priscilla and provided her the findings. An emergence vehicle arrived, stabilized James and quickly took him to hospital with a representative of the hanger. The hanger manager took the phone and notebook into her office and made copies and digital document set of the information existing on each and sent the files to Priscilla. She than provided them to security. National police arrived and arrested the individual. Priscilla entered the documents into several searches and began the search while linking her Partners to the search results.

Earlier that Monday morning, the King Air 350 lifted off with Deep Beak and crew to begin their week completing software updates and hardware inspection starting in Southern Italy and working their way North over the week ahead. On Saturday, they had received a more recent software package from Frederick. By mid-day, it was clear that the installations are going smoothly. With both installations this morning, only one required an upgrade of the chassis ground cable. Beak smiled as it felt great that the project has stated so very well.

Late morning, Frederick and Julio met regarding their up-coming travels this week. Frederick stated that he had not heard back from either Dr. Saltinus Amazonas or his representative. As a result, their meeting with Sergio will need to be in generalities regarding ‘Time Travel.’ Julio stated that he is not comfortable with the technology as there are two very different beliefs regarding such travel. One stated that because of the massiveness of History, changing it becomes either impossible or very near impossible. The other is that changing History results in vastly different outcomes that is likely even worst then the way History had first unraveled. Interesting hypothesis Julio, I honestly have not considered the ramifications either way. With a smile, Julio suggested his favorite drink while contemplating the subject.

Re: Yellow Nape Law

Very early Tuesday morning Frederick and Julio boarded the King Air 350 for their flight to Phoenix. Take-off was on-time. They reviewed the document sets for today. As they near the finish of the review, Julio asked if the inspection of the server provided any insight into what they had done to it and why? Frederick smiled widely Julio was such a joy to work with as his mind was always searching out the edge. Great question, first they had made numerous changes to the hardware and yes muddled with the software. It was clear that they had been working at the direction of others, either following direction poorly or not understanding what they had been asked to accomplish. Julio interjected, but who and why, comes to mind. Any answers? Not sure regarding who, but the why, based on what I found implies they had been targeting Phoenix project vendor’s only. The who could be seen in either internal strife or external attacks on the project private funding, government funding, competitive programs(?) or attempting to slow the project. In reviewing the interrogation of the two ‘outsiders,’ a discernable conclusion was not evident. Julio entered a search using Frederick’s and the interrogation’s findings.

Julio reviewed Priscilla’s searches of the shooting in South Africa and was taken back by the background of that individual, didn’t James’ background this guy at all? What about the third member of his team and James himself. Not determined killers, but clearly neither of them is friends of Yellow Nape. Julio packaged the search with the recommendation of turning all of them over to the South Africa police. James’ had clearly been flipped by at least one if not more gangs with intent to cause damage to Yellow Nape. Recommend that Mealy Manager confiscate all belongings for review and deeper investigation of the trio and have the third member held for questioning.

Priscilla called the Mealy hanger manager and reviewed the recent findings and what steps she needs to quickly complete. She asked what charges Priscilla would suggest to security or the national police? Priscilla ponders that for a moment, Terrorism! I would suggest that you line up the path of the bullet and see if you can determine who the shot was intended for. The manager had her staff confine the third member and collect all they had brought with them and had it locked in her office. Priscilla said that she was so very sorry that this had happened in your hanger! The manager paused for a long moment to a point that Priscilla asked if she was alright. She said it was her, the shooter had her in his sights. Priscilla asked if she knew the charter boat skipper from a couple of years ago. You may want to call him and ask how fishing has been? Ask the pilot to call me regarding a plane. Bye. Priscilla then called a very old friend in Grey Town.

Frederick and Julio arrived at the Phoenix project offices just before 10:00 hours and entered the building. The General welcomed them and led them his office. Julio, I would guess that you have the project paperwork, yes? That is correct. The General pick-up his phone and called Arthur to his office. Frederick, you haven’t met Arthur, he now heads our IT group and he will be signing along with me today. Arthur entered the room as the General completed introductions. Arthur approached Frederick. My staff and I have been using your technology for near five days and it is amazing. I read your proposal and understand that what we have is based on your new MIYH OS GEN IV technology, which I’m guessing is a full measure above it. Is that correct? No, its near four levels Frederick stated. Arthur looked at the General. The General responded, I’ve known Frederick for most all of my career and have never had him over promise on anything. Julio, the documents, please?

The 747 had arrived at the Phoenix hanger and had been unloaded then it’s containers loaded on trucks to the project. Once areas had been unloaded those areas were than loaded with product headed for CERN’s projects. While that work continued, the fuel trucks arrived and fueled the aircraft. Then the services truck. Followed by the replacement crew. As 14:00 hours neared Frederick and Julio arrived, entered the hunger and then guided to the waiting aircraft, up the portable stairway and into the front section of the aircraft. At 14:00 hours, the 747 began its take-off roll as speed continued to build and reached rotation, a slight pullback and the nose rose as the 747 lifted into the sky. The large craft settled on is wings allowing the landing gear to be retracked, the sound level lowered and the ground fell away under it as it reached ever higher into the sky. The pilots entered the course and allowed the aircraft to settle into its route to Altana.

Re: Yellow Nape Law

Early-evening Tuesday Frederick and Julio boarded the 747. The aircraft cargo bays’ had been filled including the areas normally used for passengers. The aircraft was full, but still under its weight restriction. As is common, shortly after liftoff, they began by reviewing the meetings with the two Governments. The brief indicated in Switzerland, the same individuals that attended the prior meeting will be part of this meeting. The Thursday meeting would have not only the original group, but all those that had missed the first meeting, which likely meant that the second meeting would include the majority of what was covered before. Julio would be repeating last week’s 747 flight as that aircraft would be retired and its new replacement provided. Frederick provided the special laptop for installation in the new 747.

Priscilla had elected to run full backgrounds on all the staff from North Africa and happily found nothing. They did provide support for the abilities they had listed in the documents requested. Her phone rang, she didn’t recognize the caller ID. It was the pilot from South Africa as he introduced himself, Priscilla recognized his voice as he had purchased the King Air 250 with the Blackhawk upgrade from them over three years ago. Priscilla stated, we have a 350i with the Blackhawk upgrade, extended range, glass cockpit upgrade with a full suite of electronics. We are not running as deeply into Africa as often now adays. Currently, the aircraft is at our Frankfort Germany hanger. They quickly came to a price and he stated that he would obtain tickets and fly-up to see the aircraft this week. Priscilla provided him Anna’s direct number. She then emailed the hanger manager that there is an interested party in the 350i. The hanger manager had his staff begin to detail the aircraft.

Earlier that morning, Rickeybird had been flown to Poland onboard one of the P.180 Avanti EVO’s. He arrived at the FBO hanger and was provided a mid-size SUV, directions to the accommodations near the center of Embassy role. Priscilla has provided him a listed of establishments in that area. Rickeybird had completed his own investigation of where the ‘workers’ went afterhours, ‘his’ folks. When he boarded and was provided an updated brief that noted the death of Mrs. Black (aka Blackwell) in the shoot-out near the downtown main railway station in addition to activities in Poland over the past several weeks.

Sara’s schedule had her ending training of Chen this week and flying with the Partners to Amsterdam Wednesday night after the meeting with Sergio. She had read the reports from South Africa and was shocked that James had hired such individuals and that a gang or gangs had convinced him to betray Yellow Nape! It just didn’t make any sense to her. She pulled all her visit reports, telephone and correspondence with James and read them with detail looking for a transition, an indication, something! As she shifted though, she spotted an event that was likely the trigger, the death of his wife. She recalled that his wife had always been at every manager meeting and the Christmas gathering. After her death, the quality of his work fell preciously. She than looked at his client base prior to and after her death, she saw a shift, and then an over whelming shift to a single group. Sara placed her research in a brief and sent it to the Partners. She began preparing to return to Amsterdam.

This time, Priscilla assured that she arrived well ahead of her fellow Partners as the P.180 Avanti EVO arrived a full hour ahead of them at the Switzerland hanger. She met with the hanger manager and the FBO manager regarding the morning activities and placement of the aircraft. She was happy with the preparation of the hanger and refreshments. Fifteen minutes prior to the arrival of the 747, the Switzerland delegation began arriving. Shortly afterwards, she could hear the arrival of the aircraft. As before, it provided an excellent presentation.

Re: Yellow Nape Law

Unknown to the Mealy Partners, the Swiss Government had become flush with cash as a specific Country had provided reprisal funds to continual its existence on Embassy role. Their goal today was to vastly expand the use of Mealy technology to assure that their Country will never be caught or used in such a manor, targeting a major expansion in surveillance capabilities. To the Northwest another Country had experienced a like flush of cash from the same source. This week has the potential of forcing a massive expansion of a small multinational corporation and a like massive effort to remain out of the limelight.

After the short meet and greet, Priscilla began the meeting with her standard fair by welcoming the delegation and turning the meeting over to them. The President began his brief statement, which had the Mealy members shocked by the vast increase in the project and their interest in beginning the project ASAP. He then turned the meeting over to Frederick. Frederick thanked them for their trust in Mealy International and for their wise choice to move ahead of those who wished to harm their people and government. They then separated into three groups to define the Financial, Contractual and System aspects of the project. As 12:00 hours arrived, they finished-up the individual discussions and merged to complete the Contractual and Financial aspect. Then onto the signing. The final definition of the system was very close to the overall size of the system proposed to the Netherlands’. As Frederick looked over the final description, he mused that it would most likely bring Interpole Central to Switzerland. As the group sampled the refreshments, there was an overall satisfactions with the projects definition.

By 13:30 hours the Delegation had left and the Partners meet in conference room and considered the enormity of the project they just agreed. The move to use staff now in Germany for assembly of this project now appears brilliant as does the modularity of the hardware. Plus, Phoenix server is in fact running the MIYN OS GEN IV software, which allows field testing of the OS software, all-be-it, operated by a smaller duo-core processor, plus the upgrades that Deep Beak and his team are installing now will test the software’s data collect /reporting segments and the enhancement to the OS, which results in more efficient processing. All five server units are designed, boards and compounds are on order in Atlanta. Our IT staff are documenting their assembly work and that will all be available for our German hangers next week. It is likely, we will have each IT member visit each hanger to assure assembly quality and consistency. Priscilla asked does that mean we are ahead of schedule. No, Frederick stated, we have to configure them and test run them for a minimum of four weeks. Then we can talk about installation. At this moment I would say that we are ‘on-schedule’ with the Phoenix project as we have just started, as a large grin expanded across his face. The FBO staff reset the refreshment table and assured all was fresh for this smaller gathering.

Frederick noted the time and stated that Sergio should be arriving shortly and we should review prior to his arrival. As Julio and I had review on the flight over, I still have not been contacted by the good doctor or a representative. I believe that I am safe by providing a concept, but not going into the technology itself. He handed the paper to Priscilla for her to read, while he turned to Julio. Any information electronically? Julio stated that Chen’s office seems to have become a ‘safe zone’ since the loss of Nat. Priscilla looked up and stated that as long as you stay clear of the calculations /formulations and this section on how the technology in fact reduces G-forces, you should be safe. If you believe this will work, you need to contact them directly and quickly.

Has anyone been able to grasp the vast demands on electricity and the quality of that electricity Priscilla asked? From the reports I have seen from the facility and yourself Frederick, it would appear that this technology would require its own electrical generation facility and clearly the clean energy stuff fails to assure the constant supply once this thing is energized. Frederick stated that they are planning on using the CERN’s electrical source. The FBO manager stepped in and said that Sergio is here should I bring him in? By all means Priscilla stated.

Re: Yellow Nape Law

Sergio entered the conference room, he and Frederick met like lifelong friends. They pulled around the table and Sergio provided an update on the project and the great work that they have completed since Frederick’s presentation to his staff. His discussion flowed into the difficulties faced with maintaining a Vortex, let alone the Portal (entrance) and the near over-whelming area needed for Space and Time (Vortex). Priscilla asked if the CERN’s electrical generation facility was sufficient to support the demands, plus assure its stability over the duration you need to hold the Vortex stable? Sergio blinked, was this Mealy group all geniuses’, he asked himself. We’re hoping it will, we haven’t been able to define the total demand as of yet. Priscilla than asked if they have considered a Tesla Collector? That had all the guys in the room dumfounded. Clearly you remember, Frederick, that physics course we had at university and the professor that went on and on about Tesla and his “Free Energy Generator” or more accurate to say, “Free Energy Collector”? Priscilla, the only reason I succeeded in that course was because of you my dear.

Julio nearly gagged! Are you all right Julio, Priscilla asked? A “Tesla Collector” is that something that one would want to build away from other structures, Julio asked? I would guess so, Julio, why would you ask? Because that sounds much like what my brother Carlos was talking about. Sergio broke in, asking where was someone building a Tesla Collector? Julio defined what he had said, it sounded like such a thing, Sergio, not that it was. Afterall, my physics professor was crazed about string theory. I do not recall that he even spoke of Tesla, Julio added in hopes of changing the subject.

Frederick sensing Julio’s need to change the subject, interjected that the Phoenix (Mars) project appears to be progressing rapidly and the data indicates success with several tests. Sergio never caught the sidestep and rolled into a review of that program. Yes, Frederick, we are seeing great success with the Mars project and the most recent program review finds us nearly a month ahead on build schedule and thank you for the delivery today, we had been down to a single container prior to the aircraft’s arrival. Frederick looked at Julio and asked about the volume increase ability we are about to see. An honest 20% and near 30% if we limit the passenger zone, like we did today. But just having capacity means nothing if there is little to nothing to carry! The builders’ are likewise building ahead of schedule, but they are now building just as the drawings are arriving. They are quickly running out of things to build, which brings us back to development work here and in Phoenix. Sergio, what is needed to enhance the development work? Sergio looked at Frederick as he summed it into two words: Processor Speed! Frederick looked at Sergio and stated, I think I can help with that! Frederick turned to Priscilla and asked when her field crew could install our OS here? She stepped away and place a call, thanked the individual and turned back to Frederick; will this week Friday work? Sergio provided Priscilla with a project number to charge against.

The hanger manager approached Priscilla and stated they are approaching depart time. Priscilla thanked her and announced to her partners that they needed to conclude the meeting. Sergio thanked everyone for the insightful meeting and continued growth of the CERN’s project. Sergio and Priscilla hugged as did Frederick and Sergio. Sergio stated what a pleasure it was to meet Julio and that he looked forward to their future meetings. Shortly after they had finished, Sara arrived. Sergio said his farewells to Sara and that he is missing her already. The FBO staff quickly cleared the meeting area and the hanger manager let them know that their aircraft has been set in front of the hanger and is ready for them. At 16:30 they boarded the P.180 Avanti EVO.

Once comfortable in the aircraft, Sara started her update on South Africa and her findings. She also stated that the South Africa hanger manager had passed along that the charter boat skipper had stated that fishing had been great and he could easily set Mealy into his schedule. Julio was startled by the statement and in total silence went into ‘full-on’ Amazon Body Language Discussion regarding use of the charter boat skipper, especially at this critical turning point in the organization! The three continued to pass their statements regarding this moment-in-time and the happenings in South Africa. All the while, Sara continued her discussion totally obvious to the whirlwind discussion going-on a mire meter from her. The only outward sign was when Frederick opened his wings over both Priscilla and Julio as if he was stretching. The Partners settled quickly and came to an understanding that there had just been a major change in the business model the organization will forevermore be using.

Editors Note: Although those owned by Amazons are well aware of Amazon Body Language and its importance in understanding that a full conversation can be occurring directly in front of the average Parrot /Human and they would be totally unaware of it.

Julio emailed Priscilla, and Frederick regarding the great idea of a fun fishing trip for the longtime ‘Mealy Staff’ in South Africa and recommended allowing the South Africa police to handle the two staffers and that we should interview James to gain greater knowledge as to what had happened. Moments later, they all smiled deeply. Priscilla emailed the plan to the hanger manager and copied her Partners and Sara. All while, Sara continued on.

Re: Yellow Nape Law

As the pilots received clearance to land and began preparing the aircraft, the co-pilot announced, ‘prepare for landing.’ Moments later the port engine gauges display a large drop in oil pressure, followed by engine malfunction lights, alarms and voice warnings. The crew quickly shifted to single engine landing procedures and announced to the tower that they had lost port engine power and required emergency landing protocols. With lights on, flaps down, landing gear down and starboard engine power increased the aircraft adjusted to the changing adjustments. The crew followed well-practiced procedures and the aircraft landed without further issue. The hanger staff lined the front of the hanger as the aircraft was positioned in front and shut down the starboard engine. Staff quickly opened the aircraft while hanger mechanics quickly opened the port engine covers. The pilots waited for the passengers to exist with each thanking them on the way out. Priscilla walked around the back of the aircraft and called out to Ronald, what happened to my baby, Ronald? Not sure yet Priscilla, I will let you know as soon as I do. Priscilla thanked him. Hanger staff set a cart in place and began removing Sara’s things.

Priscilla came up long side her and said, you likely need to be on your way, great report on South Africa Sara, thank you. Sara and one of the Hanger staff made way to her mid-size SUV. Priscilla asked her Partners if anyone was open to dinner. Moments later they entered her full-size SUV and the guys quickly buckled in! Different place tonight guys, someplace where Julio can safely connect, good with everyone? Moments later they were headed North and fifteen minutes later they parked and everyone exited the SUV. The staff had the door open and greeted Priscilla by name and sat them at her favorite table. Drink order placed and they began what would be a very long discussion.

The morning came early in Northern Italy with four installations schedule today and then to the airport to meet the King Air 350i for the trip to Switzerland. Beak was happy with the continued success of the installation and his comfort that the hardware in all locations have been well cared for by the users. Between installations, they enjoyed the back roads of Northern Italy and of course the food and wine!

The Partners gathered for a traditional European morning meal. As they enjoyed the self-selected meal, Priscilla read Ronald’s findings regarding the engine failure. Good news, the electronics had shut the engine down prior to suffering any damage. It appears that the torque on an oil line fitting had been less than required. The fitting nut had backed-off with each heat cycle resulting in the serious leak. Recommended measures: Inspect torque standards for each engine fitting after a determined number of heat cycles. Will be contacting manufacture today. NOTE: Location of fitting would place into question purposely tampering with the fitting, as it is difficult to access without special tools and extended time. She passed the report to her Partners.

Re: Yellow Nape Law

Just prior to 8:30 hours, the security staff began arriving, Frederick provided them access to the surveillance system and the prior 7 days, at 10:00 hours, the Netherlands’s delegation began arriving at the Hanger. As they arrived the informal meet and greet began. By 10:15 everyone was in attendance. Shortly afterwards, the individual reviewing the surveillance system requested the Department Head of Homeland Security to view Frederick’s system, within minutes most of the delegation had gathered around it. Frederick was asked to answer questions regarding the system and the facial recognition capabilities as the system was assigning names to individuals within minutes after they appeared within the camera’s range.

At 10:40, Priscilla asked if everyone could gather for the beginning of the meeting. She began with introductions and then asked the Netherlands’s President to begin. I would like to thank you for inviting us and thank you for your understanding regarding last week’s meeting and during and after that meeting your organizations support in identifying individuals and providing intel that helped keep us at and ahead of the events as they unfolded. It is that very technology and much more that have our interest in being here today. Frederick, I wish to thank you for providing my staff with a stepped installation over several years. Events have since changed and we have elected to accelerate the schedule, and the magnitude of the program. Discussions with my Department Heads have us considering a delivered system of 30 to 35 modules. And, with the discussion just before the start of today’s meeting possible larger as it will need to include your surveillance system.

The Partners where totally caught-off guard. They had prepared themselves for a downsized system with an installation timeline over several years. They elected to follow the format used yesterday to break into three smaller groups. Frederick stood and thanked the President and his delegation for their trust in the Yellow Nape technologies and their interest in its abilities to not just keep-up, but step ahead of dangerous Nation States and Rouge Nations. For the sake of time and to cover everyone questions, we would like to form three smaller groups to cover Contractual, Financial and Technical scope of the project. Julio will head Contractual with Priscilla heading Financial and myself with the technical scope of the project. The FBO staff quickly reconfigured the Hanger to allow sitting and space between the groups. The groups formed quickly, and as always, there was a continual movement between groups as the scope of the project began to firm and turn into support systems, which defined the number of modules (units) needed to be set in groups of five. Once the scope of the project had been defined the number of 30 modules or 6 groups of five modules with a 7th group as a back-up depending on whether they find issues with their existing data systems.

At 12:45, the FBO staff began setting out the refreshment tables. Individuals would make their way to the tables and then join back in one of the other groups. At 13:30 they had developed the scope, then the Finances and then the Contractual elements. Individual gathering occurred as is common, but everyone had a comfort with the overall project. By 14:00 hours individuals had begun leaving as other commitments demanded. The President gathered the Partners and thanked them for allowing this very open method of defining this larger project that under more restricted formats would have taken months.

Once they had all left the Partners met and elected to speak tomorrow as part of a conference call once everyone had gotten their collective heads around the meeting. Thank goodness, Anna had volunteer to take notes!!! Priscilla turned to Julio and asked if he would fly to South Africa tonight and clean-up the mess that I had made and get into James’ head. If I went, well as you saw, I was well on my way to making that mess even larger. Thank you, dear friend, at which point she hugged Julio with the strength of a dear friend. Frederick, you will need to travel on the 747 to Washington State and exchange it with the new one. This will give you a vast amount of time to do what only you can do – make sense of this week and define a path forward. Thank you, dear friend, as she hugged him. Julio past the special 747 laptop back to Frederick, with a warning, mind the overhead!

Ronald appeared in the door of the conference room and asked Priscilla if she had a moment. In Priscilla style, she started the discussion with Well? Ronald stated he had back searched all work completed on the P.180 Avanti EVO and found that a specific mechanic had worked on that connection and he had traced his work on other aircraft finding a list of errors made. He had left the organization 18 months ago and Ronald had sent out an inspection log on every aircraft he worked on and what work he had performed. In the last seven hours, we have found three like problems. The King Air 350i in Frankford had six items that he had worked on and I have instructed them to target that aircraft first as I understand that the likely new owner will be inspecting it tomorrow. I will provide you a full report when we are ahead of this. Priscilla thanked him.

Re: Yellow Nape Law

At 8:10 hours, the King Air 350 landed and taxied to the Mealy Switzerland hanger, the hanger manager met them at the door and asked if they had a morning meal? They stated that the aircraft had included a meal and it was excellent. She provided the keys to the mid-sized SUV, directions, contact name and number for the CERN’s facility. She also provided a brief provided by Frederick and several mid-size boxes and special tools. Beak thanked her and they loaded the SUV and then read the brief. So, we need to upgrade the processor on this server, plus several other components. Also, a major improvement in the chassis ground. Hmmm, looks like one of us will need to keep the staff busy elsewhere while we are preforming the work. Seems like Frederick has solved that one as well, looks like a breaker upgrade is required as well. Nothing like an open power panel to scare-off the techs!

As Beak sat in front of the fully open server, he removed the single-core processor and set the lift platform for the quad-core processor, next the additional components that support the new quad-core processor and enhance its overall performance, 30 minutes later he had cleaned the interior of the server, changed the filters and set the server cover in place with the WIFI unit set on the bottom board. He then checked the connections looking for ‘hotwire’ connections. He found 3, of which 2 checked-out as organization use, but one was clearly an external tap! He plugged it into his laptop with the tracer software on. Within three minutes, he had the phone number, an address and name. He called a number provided by Frederick and provided the information. He clipped the wire as far back from the server as he could go. He then set the security seals in place and requested that the power be turned-on. He then started the server and began running the testing programs.

While the server was busy running the test programs, he went to Chen’s office and updated the laptop he had installed, the router and her laptop. Upon returning to the server, he began loading the new OS package. Once loaded, he ran another system test and processor test. First reading was 84%. He opened his laptop and plugged into the server and reset several parameters and ran the test again with a reading of 92%. Another couple of adjustments and the new test showed 96%. Acceptable for an older server unit. His partners had succeeded in keeping the staff far away from his work and upgraded the breaker to a fast action style. He emailed Julio and Frederick regarding the performance obtained and the ‘hotwire’. Prior to leaving he placed the new placards on the server cover.

On the way out, they stopped by Chen’s office and Beak asked her to download the data base she collected each day on the Mars’ project. When she selected ‘download’, he clicked the stopwatch, when it completed two minutes later, she was shocked. That commonly takes fifteen to eighteen minutes! Beak smiled and thanked her and said bye. They followed the same path out as they came in. At the last check point, the guard stated the boss wanted to see them. Deep Beak checked his watch and stated we have a plane to catch. Not a problem Sergio stated as he came up from the side. I’m getting reports from many of the users stating that the server is working very well. I have another server I would like you to look at. Beak said he was very sorry, but his group only handles installs and have neither the tools nor equipment to evaluate his server, I know that is not what you wanted to hear, but it’s the truth sir. Sergio’s quick evaluation of Beak was that he didn’t play word games. Well, thank you for your work today as it is clearly excellent, Sergio said as he turned and moved away. At the SUV, Beak’s team began to question him, he stopped them, reminding them of the ‘strict rules’ they had been given regarding this installation!

As Frederick’s and Julio’s long flights to very different places played out across great distances, they completed the projects that came from this week’s work. Although both had excellent seating, sleep avoided their busy minds. Upon completion, they assembled briefs and sent them to the fellow Partners. Sleep rolled in over them as the jets continued their separate tracks across the sky.

Re: Yellow Nape Law

Frederick’s Friday was a near repeat of Julio’s only a week later. That said, Julio’s Friday was proceeding very differently. He found the terminal bus and requested the Mealy Hanger. When he opened the hanger door, memories of near three years ago flowed warmly in his mind. Her voice softly shocked him into the here and now. Mary stated longtime ‘dear friend,’ as her smile lite-up her face. The hug felt warm, enjoyable and welcoming. Too long dear friend, far too long, Julio said. Their conversion continued as they cross the hanger and entered her office. Mary stated that she was so very happy when she heard that Priscilla was sending him. Julio looked closely at her and asked, are you coming to grip with the knowledge that the shooter had targeted you? She fell into his wings and absorbed his comfort as she had barely slept since that day. Can you take me back to that day and the moments leading up to that moment? She knew his legal mind was engaged, but his heart was open to her fears. Over the next hour she relived that event in a depth she was not fully aware of. It was painful, but in the comfort of his wings, she felt safe to relive those moments.

Julio learned much regarding the shooting, even the moments when James has shifted into the path of the bullet moving her out as his body twisted in. The bullet drove deep into his body missing major bones but cutting muscle forcing him to the ground while continuing to move her further away. Mary thanked him for allowing her to find comfort in the horror of those moments. I’m guessing you want to speak to James now! Julio smiled maybe a tiny bit later as I would love something to eat and drink. Mary picked-up her phone and asked for a very light lunch and a rum and coke, make that for two. She stepped into the attached toilet room while the staff prepared the light lunches and drinks. As she returned, the staff entered with the lunches and drinks. Julio stepped into the toilet room. After lunch she asked if he would like her to drive him to hospital? Julio smiled widely -- you know how I hate to drive.

They approached James’ room as a Doctor was exiting. How is he doing Doctor? He is mending well but being shot has him a bit out-of-sorts. Try not to upset him, Julio smiled and entered the room with Mary safely following him. James saw her and stated how very sorry he was that all that had to happen in front of her. Julio noted he was truly concerned. Julio stepped to his side and told him that he hasn’t said this often enough; how much he knew that his dear wife had mean to him and that he knew that she was the sunrise and sunset of his day. She was always with you, your assurance and your love. I am so sorry for your loss. James broke into tears and thanked Julio for understanding. James said, how sorry he was for all that had happened that he was ashamed by it. Julio asked if he could talk about what had happened at Mary’s Hanger, while he rested his wing on his right shoulder? James took a deep breath and started three weeks ago. As two+ hours past, he provided Julio everything he knew and the names of those involved. Julio asked him what he would like him to do? If you will, please assure they never prey upon others as they only harm those they come in contact with. I will look into it, my friend, may I say something James? Yes, Julio. James, we have a long history and your history with Priscilla goes back even further. You have long been respected by both the Mealy and Yellow Nape family and we want you to continue with the organization, will you continue to be part of us James? Mary could see the relief come across his persona. She looked at Julio and saw a tear in his eye. She saw something that she had always believed was there, but this moment cemented her knowledge that Julio was a very special Amazon, he cares deeply.

At the Switzerland hanger, the team sat in the conference room and assembled the visit report for today. Beak elected to have each individual provide segments that they had been involved to assure that everything is reported. Beak kept coming back to the ‘hotwire’ and the name connected to it. The work was poorly handled, it was shabby. The ‘name’ he remembered it, but he could not place it in context. Who was this one, he would let it to his mind! He assured that the other two covered Sergio’s request, not wishing to allow his judgement of Sergio to be found in the report. After each had read it and with minor changes made, he sent it to the Partners. A short time later, the FBO staffer announced the arrival of their 350i. The FBO staff had earlier collected their belongings from the SUV and cleaned it at Rental Auto Wash on property. As the King Air 350i was being serviced and readied of for its flight to Amsterdam, the pilots completed their paperwork and signed them. The fuel truck completed its work and the driver came in for the FBO’s signature. The FBO staffer noted that the pilots heading toward the aircraft and moved to the conference room to let the clients’ know their aircraft was beginning final preparations to depart and if they would like, they could board at this time. Fifteen minutes later the aircraft lifted into the afternoon sky.
As Mary drove, Julio began summarizing his interviews and his action recommendations, especially regarding the gang that sat at the root of the rapid movement to South Africa. Their only error was how quickly Sara was able to secure an aircraft. Their plan was for the military to shoot the aircraft down after takeoff. The gang members that made it to South Africa with James are now at the limited mercy of the police and an overloaded justice system. Julio estimated that without papers, they will be taken to a secluded section of the Northwestern boarder area and release 15+ miles into the neighboring country. They would commonly drive an additional 5 miles to the North before turning east and then later turning back south to assure they do not follow them.
