… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

American TV Outlets Want Original, As Costs Skyrocket

New York. In the new age of American television, it pays to be original. But it also costs a bundle.

From Time Warner and its HBO unit to streaming video group Netflix and online giant Amazon, money is pouring in to produce new shows like “Game of Thrones,” “Transparent” and “Marco Polo.”

With TV viewing habits becoming fragmented as more people go online for new outlets, the pressure is on to attract audiences with fresh, original programs.

Netflix is planning to spend $3 billion on content this year as it pushes to grow globally, expanding its offerings after successes with the political drama “House of Cards” and comedy-drama “Orange is The New Black.”

Not to be outdone, Amazon has stepped up its original production efforts with the transgender series “Transparent,” winner of a Golden Globe, and others, with famed director Woody Allen hired by the online giant.

Amazon invested some $1.3 billion in television programming last year, according to founder Jeff Bezos.

”Working with Woody Allen is not cheap,” said James McQuivey, an analyst at Forrester Research who follows disruptive technologies.

McQuivey said more studios and outlets are bidding for these programs, pushing up costs.

”Suddenly, instead of only having four or five studios to sell your TV shows to, you now have 12 or 16, and some of them are very motivated because they’re looking for the next big hit,” he said.

According to Nielsen data compiled by the FX cable channel, there are 352 original scripted dramas and comedies produced for US cable, broadcast and online television this year.

The number of original cable programs has doubled in the past five years. For online, the sector has grown from non-existent to 24 original programs, the research showed. That includes new efforts from Internet players such as Yahoo, AOL and Hulu.

Traditional cable and broadcast operators are not sitting still. Time Warner spent $14.5 billion on HBO programming, production and marketing in 2014, and chief executive Jeff Bewkes sees that figure growing to $19 billion in the next few years.

Viacom — which owns Nickelodeon, MTV and Comedy Central — said programming costs were up 15 percent in the past quarter.

At 21st Century Fox, controlled by mogul Rupert Murdoch, investment is a priority as well, with the broadcast Fox network having rolled out new blockbusters like “Gotham” and “Empire.”

”The next year will be a period of investments with priority focused on building hit shows, not maximizing profits. The profits will follow,” said president and chief operating officer Chase Carey.

”Our competitors have already shown what difference a couple of hits can make.”

These TV operators are looking for the next hit in the manner of HBO’s “Sopranos,” or the AMC programs “Mad Men” and “Breaking Bad.”

James Murdoch, the co-chief operating officer at 21st Century Fox, said finding the next big success is not easy.

”There’s just an absolutely enormous amount of original production going on right now,” he said.

”The total volume isn’t really the question. The right question is what are you making? How do you make it great? How do you stand out? And can you be a place that can attract the great show runners, the great writers, the great talent to come and do incredible work?”

It’s not clear if the television companies can maintain the pace of investment, or whether consumers will turn away when faced with higher subscription costs.

McQuivey said there is now “an oversupply of funding” because the old model companies are still flush with cash from their more profitable years.

”That’s a very temporary phase,” he said, noting that companies will have to tighten up as profits are squeezed.

”You can no longer start 20 new series knowing that each of these series is going generate half as many viewers as they used to,” McQuivey added.

”For now, people are making their last bets because they know the time is coming when some of them are going to be gone. They don’t want to be the ones that don’t make it across that transition.”

“…6 - The News

Number six. I'll be brief. Watch for your news to change. It has to. When the media realizes that Human Beings are changing their watching habits, they're going to start changing what they produce for you to watch. Eventually, there's going to be something called "The Good News Channel," and it will be very attractive indeed. For it will be real and offset the drama of what is today's attraction. This is what families at night, sitting around the table, will wish to watch. They'll have something where the whole picture of a situation is shown and not just the dramatic parts. You will hear about what's happening on the planet that no one is telling you now, and when that occurs [we have no clock, dear one], it's going to compete strongly with the drama. I keep telling you this. Human nature itself is starting to be in color instead of black and white. Watch for it. And that was number six ….”
