Guns N Roses Sweet Child of Mine has similarities with Australia Song

Guns N’ Roses‘ “Sweet Child o’ Mine” is a modern classic and a track that pretty much any self-respecting rock or metal fan could identify after hearing only a few notes. But are you familiar with Australian Crawl’s “Unpublished Critics,” and the bigger question is whether Guns N’ Roses were?
Australian website MaxTV recently published a post comparing the two songs, pointing out the similar chugging chord progression, lead break, verse melody and even the delivery of a vocal part on the song. The Australian Crawl track was released in 1981, with “Sweet Child o’ Mine” surfacing on GN’R’s 1987 Appetite for Destruction disc.

James Reyne, vocalist for Australian Crawl and the man who penned “Unpublished Critics,” says he’s not going to take legal action, telling The Daily Mail, “It is not inconceivable that there are similarities between the two songs. It is also not inconceivable that there may be vaguely legs in something. It’s also not inconceivable that when they came out they were quite open in interviews that they liked a lot of Australian bands. It’s also not inconceivable that they wouldn’t have been aware of certain Australian groups. God forbid I had an active publishing company and they investigated the possibility. I’m not about to take on the might of the Guns N’ Roses lawyers.”



In separate interviews, bassist Duff McKagan (who was a member of GN’R for the release of ‘Sweet Child o’ Mine’) and guitarist Gilby Clarke (who played the song live as a later member of the band) addressed the similarities.
McKagan told Opie Radio, “Any bands I’ve been in, you do the smell check. You always run into ‘Free Fallin.’ Oh man, that’s Free Fallin.’ It’s always some Tom Petty song, right? He’s the master … Anything three chords, oh crap. It’s a Stones song or a Tom Petty. But that band, Guns, at that point, we would have … We were striving to be so original and different and do our own thing. There’s just no way we would have referenced anything. So if there’s any similarity, it’s complete happenstance.”

As for Clarke, he told West Palm Beach’s 98.7 The Gater in an interview posted below, “I honestly don’t know. I mean, obviously, when I heard them played [back to back], it’s definitely a ‘wow.’ But I don’t think there’s any connection. In all honesty, there isn’t a connection. This band was always about being original, being the first, and not taking no crap from nobody. So it’s really not in the DNA to be a part of something like that, I think.”

He added, “Look, there’s only 12 notes out there — we haven’t been able to create any new ones in the fifty-plus years of rock and roll. And a couple notes are gonna go together the same on a couple of bands.”

PHIVOLCS CONFIRMED - The Big One Earthquake Might Strike Sooner In Philippines

Earthquakes are impossible to predict but, based on historical records, Metro Manila's West Valley Fault is due for the Next Big One within our lifetimes.

Following the magnitude 6.7 earthquake that caused devastation in Surigao, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) has issued a warning on the “Big One,” a powerful earthquake that could kill thousands of residents of Metro Manila and nearby provinces.

Though the earthquake can occur anywhere along the West Valley Fault, including Metro Manila, a 7.2 magnitude earthquake can shake the ground even a hundred kilometers away, which means that it can shake the whole of Metro Manila and its surrounding provinces.

The West Valley Fault that runs from the heights of Sierra Madre down to Laguna. It crosses the eastern side of Quezon City, western side of Marikina, western part of Pasig, eastern part of Makati, parts of Taguig, and Muntinlupa.


Weak, poorly designed, and poorly constructed buildings far from the earthquake fault are still vulnerable to destruction.

Furthermore, the expected movement of Manila trench in the West Philippine Sea might cause a devastating tsunami in the 14 coastal towns of Pangasinan.

“Everyone must learn from the recent effects of the magnitude 6.7 earthquake in Surigao del Norte. If a similar event happens in a highly urbanized area, the effects can be more devastating,” Phivolcs director Renato Solidum warned.

PDRRMC spokesperson Avenix Arenas also said that Bulacan, Metro Manila up to Southern Luzon will the most quake and tsunami affected areas.

Recent studies show that a 32-feet-tsunami could be generated by the upcoming disastrous earthquake. Residents in the coastal areas of the affected areas should prepare anytime for the quake could possibly strike anytime.

Nokia Relaunches Back 3310 Mobile Phone

BARCELONA (AFP) - Finnish brand Nokia, a former mobile star, on Sunday (Feb 26) launched three new Android smartphones and unveiled a revamped version of its iconic 3310 model more than a decade after it was phased out.

Unlike the original, which was known for its sturdiness, the new Nokia 3310 will allow Web browsing.

Consumers thinking of using the 3310 to surf online on Wi-Fi networks in the absence of 2G will be out of luck, too - the handset does not have Wi-Fi support.

Still, the new version of the 3310 will bring back its predecessor's popular "Snake" game and distinctive ringtones, said Arto Nummela, the head of Finnish start-up HMD Global which will produce the phone under a licensing agreement with Nokia.

"The telephone will allow you to talk for 22 hours, 10 times more than the original," he said during a presentation in Barcelona on the eve of the start of the Mobile World Congress, the world's biggest mobile phone show.


Launched in 2000, Nokia's original 3310 sold nearly 120 million units worldwide before it was discontinued in 2005, making it one of the world's best-selling mobile phones.

Analysts said resurrecting the popular model was a clever way for HMD Global to relaunch Nokia's brand.

"HMD launched three new smartphones and an iconic mobile. It is a way to create a halo effect around the other models by reviving talk about the Nokia brand," said Thomas Husson, a mobile analyst at Forrester.

In addition to the new 3310, HMD presented three new smartphones, the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 which will sell for different prices.

The Nokia 6 was already available in China and will now go on sale globally.

"We think (Nokia) could take 5 percent of the global smartphone market by the end of 2019. But it needs to get big quick or it won't work," said CCS Insight's device specialist and chief of research, Ben Wood.

Nokia was the world's top mobile maker between 1998 and 2011 but was overtaken by South Korean rival Samsung after failing to respond to the rapid rise of smartphones.

Its telephone brand remains widely recognised, especially in developing markets.

Now a leading telecom equipment maker, Nokia sold its entire handset business to Microsoft Corp in 2014.

Last year HMD bought Microsoft Mobile's handset business and the right to use the Nokia brand.

Under the agreement, Nokia will receive royalty payments from HMD for sales of every Nokia branded mobile phone or tablet.

Ten reasons why you're still not rich

As a financial advisor, I have spent many years helping other people overcome financial stumbling blocks so they can become rich. Ironically, the one person I have had the most trouble helping is myself.

Being “rich” can mean different things to different people, but I believe it means having the financial freedom to achieve your goals and live the life you want. I am great at giving advice; I am not always so great at taking my own advice (know anyone like that?). So, when it came to helping my clients understand why they weren’t rich yet, the easy part was explaining the culprits, because I was all too familiar with most of them.

Regardless of our upbringing, education, profession or lifestyle, most of us are not where we want to be financially and our reasons are probably more similar than different. The good news is that it is never too late to become rich if you, like me, are ready to own up to the reasons you’re not and do something about it.
Want to know why you aren’t rich yet? Keep reading.

1. You spend money like you’re already rich.

Sure, it feels good to buy expensive things, whether it’s a luxury car, designer clothes, a big house in the burbs, or a tropical vacation. Even if you don’t necessarily buy pricey items, if you consistently buy stuff you really don’t need, it still adds up fast ($300 trip to Target for toothpaste? AHEM). But the shopping high only lasts until the guilt and regret set in or the credit card bill arrives. Most of us are guilty of living beyond our means and using credit cards more than we should. The problem is that as long as we continue to spend more than we have, we can’t start building wealth. Chronic overspending and high-interest, revolving credit card debt are your worst enemies when it comes to financial success. Spend like you’re poor and you are much more likely to become rich.

2. You don’t have a plan.

Without clearly defined short, mid and long-term goals, becoming rich will just seem like an unattainable fantasy. And that turns into your go-to excuse for why you shouldn’t bother saving or stop overspending. As we say in the financial industry: those who fail to plan, plan to fail. Creating a financial plan may seem overwhelming or intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. Whether you do-it-yourself or decide to work with a financial professional, the process simply starts with prioritizing your goals and writing them down. Put that list where you can see it on a regular basis. Visual reminders go a long way in helping us stay on track.

3. You don’t have an emergency fund.

I know, you’ve heard it a hundred times: you need to have at least six months of income saved in an emergency fund. And yes, it’s much easier said than done. However, I’ve seen too many people (including myself) get hit with a major unplanned expense, whether it’s a car or home repair or a medical bill, or an unexpected job loss, accident or illness that’s led to a drastic reduction in income. When these things happen--and they do, more often than you might think--not having a financial safety cushion can make the situation much, much worse. If you’re forced to rely on credit cards, you’ll end up sinking deeper into debt instead of, yes, saving to become rich.


4. You started late.

With every year or month that goes by without saving, your chances of becoming rich decrease. Time and compounding interest are your two best friends when it comes to growing money, so wasting them really hurts. Just like exercising, the hardest part of saving is starting. Even if you’re in debt, making little money or have a lot of expenses, you can still always save something -- even if it is a small amount. The sooner you get yourself into the habit of saving -- regardless of how much -- the easier it will be for you to continue and eventually increase those savings. I like to think of saving as a muscle you have to work out and build with practice. Even if you start saving late, you can still become rich if you’re committed enough. But you need to start. Now.

5. You’d rather complain than commit.

“Life is too expensive.” “I’ll never get out of debt.” “I don’t make enough money.” “Investing is too risky.” I’ve probably heard every excuse for why someone isn’t saving, investing or planning in general, and I’ll admit I’ve used a few of them myself from time to time. It’s easier to be lazy and let bad habits fester than to commit to --and follow through on -- changing them. It’s no wonder obesity and debt are epidemics in our country, and that millions of Americans have had to push off retirement. As long as the complaining, excuses and finger-pointing persist, so too will not becoming rich. Instead, take responsibility for your bad habits and focus on what you can do to change them. Then do it.

6. You live for today in spite of tomorrow.

I get it. It is really hard to think about retirement and other distant fantasies when we have needs and plenty of wants now. The bills have to get paid, the family must be fed, momma needs a vacation -- and a new wardrobe to go along with it. The problem is that impulsive and overly-indulgent behavior commonly lead to credit card debt, spending money you might have otherwise saved and, yes, not becoming rich. Do yourself a favor: Ditch the “buy now, worry later” mindset and instead, adopt a “save now, get rich later” mindset.

7. You’re a one-trick investor.

You might be lucky enough to become rich by betting all your money on one type of investment. Just like you might be lucky enough to win the lottery. But that’s not a strategy for getting rich (at least, not one I’d ever recommend).
One of the worst financial mistakes you can make is putting all your money eggs in one basket. Doing so puts you at too much risk, whether it is being too conservative or too aggressive. Sure, the stock market is on a run and real estate is on an upswing again, but are you prepared for when the tides turn? Because they will. And if you are invested in all fixed-income securities like CDs, bonds and annuities and think you’re safe, inflation should make you think again. Your investment portfolio needs to include a good mix of investments with varied levels of risk and return potential and liquidity (so you can get your money when you need it).

8. You don’t automate.

Here’s the secret to saving: Automation. Saving is seamless when it’s automatic. Unfortunately, we are not born to be savers. We are impulsive and greedy by nature. Being responsible requires much more discipline. However, automation forces us to be responsible without too much effort. And all it requires is setting up regular transfers from a paycheck or bank account to a savings or investment account. Without it, we are much more likely to spend money we could be saving. Even if it is a seemingly small amount that you automate, those steady investments can make a big difference over time. Automate whatever you can whenever you can; just be careful to avoid overdrafting your account and try to increase your savings amount periodically.


9. You have no sense of urgency.

You might think you don’t need to worry about getting out of debt or saving because someone, or something else will save you. Maybe it’s a pay raise, a new job, an inheritance, a rich spouse, or the lottery you’re counting on. Whatever “it” is, you use it as an excuse to put off taking steps on your own to become rich. The problem is that very little in life is certain. Who knows what will actually happen, or not happen, so why not focus on what you can control now? Save now and save yourself -- just in case something, or someone, else won’t.

10. You’re easily influenced.

Maybe you live with a chronic overspender or a typical day out with your girlfriends involves shopping. Or maybe it’s your inner “Real Housewife” that you sometimes can’t control. We all have negative influences in our lives that threaten our chances of becoming rich. The superficial, materialistic, sensational culture in which we live is probably the biggest one. The suffocating swirl of media that goes along with it makes it ten times worse. The trick is not giving in to temptation. How? Some of it is making conscious choices to avoid putting yourself in vulnerable positions. But most of it is having the willpower to keep the goal of becoming rich in the front of your mind, especially when you are tempted to sabotage yourself.

Nikola Tesla free energy and the pyramid effect



Nikola Tesla regarded the Earth as one of the plates of a capacitor, the ionosphere forming the other plate. Recent measurements have shown that the voltage gradient between the two is 400,000 volts.

With this principle, he said he was able, through his invention, to provide free energy to anyone, inexhaustible in quantity, anywhere on earth. That is why he had built a first prototype, the Wardenclyffe Tower, in which was to apply his famous pyramid effect. What is it exactly?

"The lines of force of the electric charge additioned to the fields from the sun act on the walls of a pyramid.

The magnetic equipotentials show a high magnetic density in the summit. The voltage of the electric field increases of 100 V per meter. The terrestrial negative field reaches its maximum value at the summit of the pyramid; at the top of the pyramid of Giza, the voltage is 14,600 V. This pyramid is itself a capacitor, it accumulates an electrical charge. If an excess load is added, a discharge occurs at the top, and, as we know currently, that top was adorned with a solid gold capstone, an excellent conductor."

Tesla wanted his tower to be high to increase the voltage at the top. He wanted to create an artificial lightning in the tower. In the discharge tube of a natural flash , the temperature rises to 30 000 ° C. Tesla did not want to manage such high temperatures because it is a waste of energy. Tesla's Wardenclyffe tower would have used a transformer to produce a high voltage, which would have generated, instead of a natural lightning, a "discharge of high energetic ion abundance"


To accentuate the pyramid effect, he had imagined to give the tower the octagonal shape of a pyramid topped by a half sphere. Why octogonal? Tesla does not explain, but when we read his memoirs, we understand that he sensed a scientific discipline that did not yet exist, geobiology, and the theory of waves of forms. From the perspective of traditional physics, the fact that the tower is octagonal is insignificant. It could be square or have an infinite number of faces, that is conic.

"In all cases the voltage would have been the same, its shape just gave it stability." (Source) This raises two objections. The octagonal shape is not a guarantee of stability comparing to the square shape. If he was really looking for stability, a hyperbolic rise, like that of the Eiffel Tower, would have been better suited. The octagonal shape has very special wave characteristics, it is possible that this pure genius sensed it without being able to theorize it.

As for the square shape of the pyramids, the engineer Gustave Eiffel has chosen it for his tower, precisely because it is a guarantee of stability, as the four legs and the widening elevation. Built in 1889, our national tower was already fairly well known to be his model. As Wardenclyffe Tower, the Eiffel Tower has a pyramid effect which makes it pick at the top, even without a storm, a DC current. Its lightning rod "makes" thus some electricity that goes down in a cable to be delivered to the earth.

This waste is not limited to the Eiffel Tower. All roofs and metal frames make the same production, stupidly given to the earth. The Vril energy is free, it is its biggest flaw in a world of profit. The fact that it is completely environmentally friendly and inexhaustible has no interest for the capital. The fact that it is beneficial for both the human mind and the health of people, animals and plants thanks to the virtues of water of lightning, has even much less interest for profiteers.

Unfortunately, Tesla was never able to finish his tower. He did not have the opportunity to carry out the planned experiments on Long Island that sought to bring rain in the deserts. Others before him had managed that. We know that Egypt has not always been desertic. The Greek historian Herodotus wrote that "Egypt is a gift of the Nile." But it was in the 5th century BC. Since then, its climate has not changed much, and yet it has not always been so. The predynastic Egypt was rather a gift of the pyramids...

"In the pre-dynastic period, the Egyptian climate is much less arid than it is nowadays. Large areas of Egypt are covered with savanna and traversed by herds of ungulates. The foliage and wildlife then are much more prolific and the Nile region is home to large populations of waterfowl. Hunting is a common activity for the Egyptians and it is also during this period that many animals are domesticated for the first time."

To discuss these merry bands of ungulates, this waterfowl and those hunters never empty-handed, one imagines a very different climate.

And if you go back even further, at a time when, according to Egyptologists, this region of the world was uninhabited, you will discover a startling rainfall. For a millennium, at least, a downpour fell on the Nile Valley. Witness of these continual showers, the Sphinx and its sides deeply marked by rain erosion. According to climatologists, the Sphinx must have more than ten thousand years old, and come from a period of higher rainfall. One can imagine that the great pyramids of Giza date from this period.

Numerous are the authors who have, trusting the climatologists more than the Egyptologists, still bogged down in a phony chronology, of recent manufacture, and in their turf wars. Of course, the latter refused the thesis of climatologists, however well supported. Never would an archaeologist let the geographers trample his flowerbeds. Continuing to dream like Tesla, one can see how these enormous masses, topped by a conductive gold capstone and coated with gold plates, were used as lightning-catchers by triggering continual storms.

The rain came down to no end on these regions as the pyramids, under the supervision of skilled technicians, continued to function. Gradually, knowledge has been lost, the pyramids were robbed of their precious metal, and Egypt has shifted towards aridity.

Unlike the Wardenclyffe tower, "the function of the pyramids was not at all to produce lightning. Since their construction there are thousands of years, the pyramids function as negative ion generators. In order that they ionize permanently the ambient air, they had to be connected to sources of negative ions. the basement of Giza contains water in abundance. Through a piezoelectric effect, these ions accumulate in the pyramids that then discharged them at their peak.

These pyramids are made of a stone containing crystals that capture the electric charges of underground water. "


This is what happened in the Great Pyramid, but lightning was playing part too. As for the piezoelectric effect, if it is perhaps playing a part too, we must not neglect the natural conductivity of the rocks in alternating polarization. in addition, the author of the article cited in reference ignored the discharge bows, whose function is not architectural at all. Egyptologists have not understood their use, however a resorting to the Akashic Records allowed them to give them a perfect name: the discharge bows were electric arcs that actually sent discharges! Connected to the top capstone by surfaces and metallic rods, they received the atmospheric energy, accumulated it and emitted "a discharge of high energetic ion abundance" in Isis' Chamber where the candidate to awakening was lying in the stone sarcophagus...Which is the trunk of Isis where the adolescent Jesus would have received enlightenment...

Ten unexplained phenomena



1 Noise Taos Some residents and guests of the small town of Taos in New Mexico, can hear for years a low-frequency noise from the desert. Strange and only 2% of the local population can hear it. Some believe that the cause is an unusual acoustic space, others see this as an example of the phenomenon of mass hallucination or even a secret project. However, a few years no one has been able to determine the source of the noise.

2 Bigfoot For decades rumors of Bigfoot, on different continents had different names, but they all look similar. A huge, furry or hairy, human-like creature seen by many, but failed to prove its existence.

3 Intuition Sixth Sense familiar to all of us. And although our misgivings sometimes deceive us, but just as often they are correct. Psychologists believe that the person is able to subconsciously collect and analyze vast amounts of information, and thus to draw conclusions and to know something without knowing how he knew. But the presence of intuition is difficult to prove, and the study of intuition is extremely difficult too.


4 The mysterious disappearance people disappear for various reasons. In most cases, they run away consciously, sometimes disappearance is the result of an accident, sometimes people are kidnapped or killed, but most of them were subsequently found. But it is known as the mysterious disappearance. From the crew of "Mary Celeste" to Jimmy Hoffa and Natalie Holloway, people simply disappeared without a trace.

5 Ghosts spirits of the dead appeared throughout the history of mankind. Ancients wrote about them, they were seen by our ancestors and our contemporaries. However, a clear scientific proof of the possibility of contact with the dead is still unknown.

6 Deja vu, Deja vu is translated from French as "déjà vu" and describes a strong feeling that an identical set of circumstances has happened before. For example, entering the building in a foreign country where you have never been, you may feel that it is familiar to you. The causes and nature of the phenomenon is still a mystery.

7 UFOs There is no doubt that UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) exist. In heaven often see things that they can not identify. Although most cases are understandable (from weather balloons to meteors) always remain a mystery.

8 Life After Death People who were on the brink of death, often tell of the strange visions and describe the experience of extracorporal existence. Although the evidence of the accuracy of this information on different people experiencing the same phenomena are difficult to proved. In order to understand this mystery, scientists are now conducting a study called AWARE.


9 Paranormal abilities and extrasensory perception, Paranormal abilities and extrasensory perception are widespread. As a result of research the existence of paranormal abilities is not there and not clearly proven.

10 Communication of the body with the mind of Medicine is just beginning to understand how the influence of the mind on the body. For example, the placebo effect demonstrates that people can alleviate the symptoms of the disease simply believing that the drug is doing effectively, regardless of whether the medicine effectiveness is really is. Self-healing capabilities of the human body is very impressive, but no less mysterious.
