IJNias Hi, in the Waterbase Discharge Points table (http://www.eea.europa.eu/da[…]ve-3#tab-used-in-indicators), what are the codes for the dcpIrrigation field? The table of definitions defines it as the purpose of discharge on land, but does not further define the codes. Thank you.

Iriasomozap Good afternoon, my name is Iria Somoza Paz. I am a high school student, but with the same interest in this moment to almost all the inhabitants of Galicia (Spain).
Recently it has been approved a mining project in our precious land. Foreign mining companies are going to extract approximately 34 tons of gold from our soil, and when this work is finished they will leave. But what benefits do we get from this proposal?
-392 Acres destroyed.
-4300 Tons of cyanide used during operation
-8400 Tons of arsenic
-17 Tons of contaminated waste
-Sludge with heavy metals that pollute our waters (seas, rivers and aquifers)
-Sterile soils which will not recover in hundreds of years
-Air pollution and desiccation
-Inhabitants-fatal diseases, poisoning, increased risk of cancer by 800%, and birth defects.
Currently they will begin to operate a mine, but it is planned to operate another six more. These mines are located near nature reserves and villages such as Fragas do Eume (internacionaly known), Fonsagrada, Zas, A Coruña, Santa Comba, and Pontevedra.
Our environmental government has accepted the proposal without a previous study of the environmental consequences that this would have on behalf of businesses. Please, it is not our fault to have incompetent politicians. We are witnessing a brutal economic crisis because of their bad policy approaches, and now they want to take the only thing we have left: our nature, our biodiversity, OUR OWN HEALTH AND OUR OWN LIFE!
On our one we can not stop this catastrophe, we need international support. Make this news public, give people the opportunity to sign at:
http://change.org/salvemosgalicia (we need thousands of signatures), and watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQvms6lmYec . It would be great that international environmental organizations and press would support us, and collaborate with Seraphim, the leader of this campaign. We need to let the world know what is happening in Galicia and we need help now. Thank you for your attention. Together we can stop this disaster.

[1 paradox]Why 0.999... is not equal to 1?

Written in 2012

The current mathematic theory tells us, 1>0.9, 1>0.99, 1>0.999, ..., but at last it says 1=0.999..., a negation of itself (Proof 0.999... =1: 1/9=0.111..., 1/9x9=1, 0.111...x9=0.999..., so 1=0.999...). So it is totally a paradox, name it as 【1 paradox】. You see this is a mathematic problem at first, actually it is a philosophic problem. Then we can resolve it. Because math is a incomplete theory, only philosophy could be a complete one. The answer is that 0.999... is not equal to 1. Because of these reasons:

1. The infinite world and finite world.

We live in one world but made up of two parts: the infinite part and the finite part. But we develop our mathematic system based on the finite part, because we never entered into the infinite part. Your attention, God is in it.

0.999... is a number in the infinite world, but 1 is a number in the finite world. For example, 1 represents an apple. But then 0.999...? We don't know. That is to say, we can't use a number in the infinite world to plus a number in the finite world. For example, an apple plus an apple, we say it is 1+1=2, we get two apples, but if it is an apple plus a banana, we only can say we get two fruits. The key problem is we don't know what is 0.999..., we can get nothing. So we can't say 9+0.999...=9.999... or 10, etc.

We can use "infinite world" and "finite world" to resolve some of zeno's paradox, too.

2. lim0.999...=1, not 0.999...=1.

3.The indeterminate principle.

Because of the indeterminate principle, 1/9 is not equal to 0.111....

For example, cut an apple into nine equal parts, then every part of it is 1/9. But if you use different measure tools to measure the volume of every part, it is indeterminate. That is to say, you may find the volume could not exactly be 0.111..., but it would be 0.123, 0.1142, or 0.11425, etc.

Now we end a biggest mathematical crisis. But most important is this standpoint tells us, our world is only a sample from a sample space. When you realized this, and that the current probability theory is wrong, when you find the Meta-sample-space, you would be able to create a real AI-system. It will indicate that there must be one God-system in the system, which is the controller. Look our world, there must be one God, as for us, only some robots. Maybe we are in a God's game, WHO KNOWS?
