Owner’s Objectives

It's been a while since I expressed some of my objectives for the CC . First of all I like and respect everyone that joins our club . I realize that not everyone knows what a CC is all about . Many have different reasons for joining . I really don't know how many of the other clubs are run . They are all different . What I want to emphasize in our CC is that whatever tier you are . That you feel comfortable here , part of a team of players that come here to find conditions that enable them to improve their game , hone their skills , lower their scores ,lower their averages , move up in tiers . Enjoyably and comfortably with the conditions that challenge them enough to keep that drive without the frustrationsof regular game play . All that is completely possible by either creating those tourneys yourself or by messaging me about it . Or someone else in your tier that has been creating tourneys . Any kind of information that you need to know should be provided here , any kind of appp , calculator , help , tutorial , tournament , statistic , message , opinion , gripe , compliment , etc , etc . Should able to be aqcuired here ( or in our website , as it may be easier there ). With your help , all of this can be done easily . We already have a good start . I am going to be here for a very long time trying to achieve all this . For any of you that think it's a good direction for your CC to go in . Then lets keep on keepin on . Sincerely , Your Co team member PDB1 , Paul ( sitting here on a rare rainy day ) May the SUN always be with you

    PROPRIETARY SOFTWARE STRIKES AGAIN..Its tearing away the very fabric of the society in which we exist. 
    No, Volkswagen, not you too. You’re supposed to be the friendly company, the one that makes adorable-yet-safe cars that zip through the European countryside in your commercials, a countryside that is lush and green with a beautiful blue sky shining overhead.
    Unfortunately, that lush, green landscape and blue sky could be in danger thanks to software that VW admitted this week it had installed on eleven million vehicles. A reported 500,000 vehicles in the US are believed to have “emissions cheating” software installed that would switch the engine to a cleaner mode during emissions tests, then switch off to a more powerful, more polluting mode for standard driving.
    Sadly, in what could end up being one of the largest industry shakedowns to involve a piece of software, automakers throughout Germany and the EU are being put in the hot seat. While VW’s stock prices fell dramatically to a four-year low in the wake of this software scandal-ultimately losing 35% of the company’s total value before leveling out–and executives at the company have promised heads will roll over this news, other European manufacturers are feeling the fallout with their own stock.
    According to an article by FoxNews, “The shockwaves from the scandal enveloping Volkswagen were being felt far and wide across the sector as traders wondered who else may get embroiled. Germany’s Daimler AG, the maker of Mercedes-Benz cars, was down 6 percent, while BMW AG fell 5.3 percent. France’s Renault SA was 5.5 percent lower.”
    The why is simple: profits.
    But the “how” of the software is a little more sophisticated. According to Yahoo News, the software “covertly turns off pollution controls when the car is being driven. It turns them on only when it detects that the vehicle is undergoing an emissions test. With the so-called ‘defeat device’ deactivated, the car can spew pollutant gases into the air, including nitrogen oxide in amounts as much as 40 times higher than emissions standards, said the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).”
    In an interesting twist, there is already speculation–from the flippant to the conspiracy theories–about what other kinds of software could be “covertly” installed on our vehicles or major appliances, and what that software is capable of.
    Just wanted to say

      Did anyone see how VW suckered Lenny Kravitz into playing a concert for a big Gala that VW put on . It was in the middle of his performance that the CEO) decides to announce that they had FCKED UP . Imagine Lenny's and everyone theres embarrassment and shame for inadvertently being tied to the name VW .

      You don't even want to go there John . The possibilities are endless and frightening . Much more so , but in the same consideration as the Chinese hacking Skype .
