World largest container vessel - Emma Maersk


Emma Maersk is the largest container vessel in the world, built ever. The ship is one superb engineer outfit, which according to many specialists is not only a sign for power, but also very profitable utility for the company of Maersk Line, which had largest container fleet in the world.
Through the years many vessel took the cup for most modern and largest vessel in container shipping, but this time I think that Emma Maersk is really the one that should own this priz. The vessel has a fantastic measurements, with lenght of 397 meters, beam of 56 meters and draft of 30 meters. The deadweight of the ship is 156,907 metric tons. The capacity of containers that can be arried by Emma Maersk is 11,000 TEUs in calculations from the company and more than 13,800 TEUs in calculation of IMO. This is the largest container vessel of the world, and the vessel with most known history, in spite of its young years.
The history of Emma Maersk started with a lot of scandals in building this vessel, a problems with timesheet and finally a fire that turned Emma Maersk back into the Ship-yard. Butalso the story that is most known for Emma Maersk is the one, that ship carried more than 10 thousand containers with Cristmass gifts for children in England from China. This story makes a lot of people to love this ship.
But that is only the beginning of the most known container vessel of the world. To learn everything continue in our website to see everything that you may want to known about Emma Maersk and Maersk Line. Also see a lot of picture of Emma Maersk, wallpapers and videos for your good time. All here is to make you part from the largest engineer outfit of the world and from its stories and dreams. That is Emma Maersk, the greatest vessel on world shipping.





The vessel, which is the largest one in container shipping of the world is called Emma Maersk.According to calculation from IMO the ship can carry between 13,500 and 15,800 TEUs, which is more than 4,000 containers more, than the previous leader in this class - Xin Shanghai. Emma Maersk is the ship that is not only beautiful with its measurements, but also beautiful with its looking and safety. The ship is wonderful and large as much as your imagine can reach. The lenght of Emma Maersk is 397 meters, and the width is 56 meters. This is a wonderful for such a metal vessel, and just some years ago people did not imagine that metal can sail. But now engineers showed how 156 thousand tons are sailing without any problems in the sea and can fight with waves and heavy seas. That is wonderful for such vessel and for people that had constructed this vessel.
Emma Maersk was built in Odense Steel Ship-yard by some of the most known engineers of the world. The ship is designed to be strong and to have enought stability to stay in front of the largest waves seen ever. That is very important because the container vessel is fighting not only with sea and cargo, but with time also.
The story about the fire on Emma Maersk is one of the most known stories, that built the outlooking and the name of Emma Maersk. That is exciting story, how into the ship yard of Lind Yard, just after some tests of the largest container vessel of the world, in June, that fire into the superstructure. This fire quickly raised to bridge and accommodation. Emma Maersk was just a step from losing itself, but firemen did their work and saved the greatest vessel of the world. That was a fantastic story about newspapers and very terrible feeling of ship-owner and the crew.
The other story of the vessel is Christmas 2006, when the ship came into Unite Kingdom with more than 5 thousand containers with presents for the kids in the greatest Christian holiday. The ship ran up the schedule to reach the country just some days before the Christmas and that brought a lot of happiness for many children and people that wait for the beautiful holiday. That story is combining love and fear. That ship is combining everything in it, and so long story, for so short time on water.
Emma Maersk is definitely the greatest vessel built evenr. And you may see the engineer outfit, that took the hearts of all the people that had seen it. This is a vessel with longest history

Seawise Giant was the largest ship built in the 20th Century with a volume of 260,851 Gross Registered Tons. As oil tankers have to be built with double hulls since the Exxon Valdez spillage in Alaskan waters March 27th 1989, it is unlikely any new tankers will exceed this size. The next type of vessel that could eventually exceed the tonnage of Seawise Giant is a floating city. A few of these ships could soon become a reality as some have already been designed.
Construction of this oil tanker began in 1979 for a Greek shipping magnate. As a result of the oil embargo in the 1970s, the original owner was declared bankrupt before his ship could be completed. This led to the Hong Kong shipping magnate Mr. C. Y. Tung buying the incomplete ship under an agreement the builders would increase its length so the Dead Weight Tonnage (full load) could be increased from 480,000 to 564,763 tons.

Seawise Giant was first operated in the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea. She was later transferred to the Persian Gulf to be used for exporting oil from Iran. While Seawise Giant was traveling through the Hormus Straits in 1986, during the Iran/Iraq war, she was attacked by Iraqi jets and hit with Exocet missiles. The extensive damage caused by these attacks led to her sinking in shallow waters at Kharg Island.

A few months after the end of the Iran-Iraq War, August 1988, Norman International bought Seawise Giant, had her refloated, repaired by the Keppel Shipyard in Singapore, and renamed her Happy Giant. The prestige of owning the world’s largest ship seems to have been the main reason this company made the purchase.

By 1999 she had been sold to the Norwegian company Jahare Wallem to be operated under the name Jahre Viking. This ship is so large, four football fields could be laid end to end on her deck, braking distance is about three and a half miles and fully loaded she sits 80 feet in the water.
The Oppama shipyard was established in the early 1970s as a large modern yard with a building dock 1,800 feet long, 260 feet wide and 41 feet deep for the construction of ultra large tankers and bulkers. On June 1st 1997, the Oppama yards name was changed to Yokosuka. Although they are unlikely to build any more ships as large as Seawise Giant, they still build large tankers and bulkers.
C. Y. Tung was born in Shanghai/China in 1912. His interest in shipping began when he found work as a shipping clerk in 1930. Tung fled with his family to Hong Kong after the communists were victorious in the Chinese Civil War 1945-1949. By 1970, he had become one of the worlds leading independent ship owners operating a fleet of more than 150 ships. As well as owning the world’s largest ship Seawise Giant, he also bought the world’s largest Trans Atlantic liner Queen Elizabeth in 1970. C. Y. Tung died April 15th 1982 aged 71. As his son Tung Chee-Hwa took control of the company at that time, he became one of Hong Kong’s most influential businessmen. This led to him taking over as chief executive of Hong Kong when Britain handed the island back to China July 1st 1997.

In March 2004, Jahre Viking was sent by its new owner, First Olsen Tankers, to the Dubai drydocks to be refitted as a floating storage and offloading unit. Under the name Knock Nevis, she began operating at the Al Shaheen oilfield in waters of Qatar.

The other six tankers to break the 500,000 dwt mark were:

Battilus 553,662 dwt 1976 - 1985
Bellamya 553,662 dwt 1976 - 1986
Pierre Guillaumat 555,051 dwt 1977 - 1983 largest ship ever constructed as designed
Esso Atlantic 516,000 dwt 1977 - 2002
Esso Pacific 516 dwt 1977 - 2002
Prairial 554,974 dwt 1979 - 2003

The first four double hull tankers over 400,000 tons were built for the Hellespont Shipping Corporation of Greece in 2000 with all being registered under the Marshall Islands. The first of these sisters at 442,000 dwt, the MV Hellespont Alhambra, was registered with the Marshall Islands on March 7th 2002, with the Hellespont Metropolis following on June 3rd. The last two sister ships in the series, the Hellespont Fairfax and Hellespont Tara joined the Marshall Islands register later that year.

Photos and information of many more tankers can be found at www.aukevisser.nl/supertankers.

If cruise ships keep growing in size at the rate they are, it now seems possible a cruise ship could soon be built as large as Knock Nevis. The largest cruise ships to hold the title largest passenger ship in the world are:

Carnival Destiny, 1996, 101,353 grt, 893 feet long, 116 feet wide.

Grand Princess, 1998, 109,000 grt, 951 feet long, 118 feet wide.

Voyager of the Seas, 1999, 142,000 grt, 1,020 feet long, 126 feet wide.

Queen Mary 2, 2003, 151,000 grt, 1,131 feet long, 135 feet wide.

Freedom of the Seas, 2006, 158,000 grt, 1,112 feet long, 126 feet wide.

Oasis of the Seas, 2009, 220,000 grt, 1,181 feet long, 154 feet wide, this ship will enter service late 2009.

Knock Nevis, 1981, 260,000 grt, 1,504 feet long, 226 feet wide.

USS Nimitz aircraft carrier, 1975, ?GRT, 1,092 feet long, 134 feet wide hull - 252 feet wide flight deck.

Questions that may be asked are: what is GRT (Gross Registered Tons).

Each ship has to be registered in size as harbor duties are set by the ships bulk. The measurement normally used for ships is Gross Registered Tons. This is a volumetric measurement that is worked out on the basis that, 100 cubic feet is the equivalent to one Gross Registered Ton. Warships are normally registered under Displacement Tonnage. This is calculated by the weight of water displaced by the ship after completion. Each warship normally has three different weights, light, standard and full load. Unless stated otherwise, the ships weight should be taken as standard. Crude oil tankers use GRT and Dead Weight Tons, DWT meaning the weight of water the ship displaces when fully loaded. GRT is probably the best way to compare the actual size of ships as it is worked out on volume. The larger the GRT, the larger in dimension the hull and superstructure are. It is hard to compare the actual bulk of a warship against cruise ships and tankers as it is hard to get the GRT of the largest warships ever built, the 9 Nimitz class aircraft carriers.

How does Freedom of the Seas have a larger GRT than QM2 as she is shorter and narrower.

The upper decks of QM2 step in from the main hull of the ship plus she does not have full height superstructure right at the stern as does Freedom of the Seas, so less volume.

How do cruise ships have so large a GRT giving they are 3-4 hundred feet shorter than Knock Nevis.

Knock Nevis sits about 80 feet in the water when fully loaded with only around 30 feet of hull above the waterline. The largest cruise ships sit about 200 feet above the waterline with only about 30 feet of their hull in the water. Cruise ships are shorter and narrower but a lot taller.

Jaguar Inflation - Robert R. Prechter, Jr. - Mises Institute.htm

Jaguar Inflation
Mises Daily by Robert R. Prechter, Jr. | Posted on 2/19/2009 12:00:00 AM
[The original version of this article appeared in the February 20, 2004 issue of The Elliott Wave Theorist, a year before the housing-credit bubble burst. An MP3 audio file of this article, read by Dr. Floy Lilley, is available for download.]

I am tired of hearing economists argue that government and the Fed should expand credit for the good of the economy. Sometimes an analogy clarifies a subject, so let's try one.
It may sound crazy, but suppose the government were to decide that the health of the nation depends upon producing Jaguar automobiles and providing them to as many people as possible.
To facilitate that goal, it begins operating Jaguar plants all over the country, subsidizing production with tax money. To everyone's delight, it offers these luxury cars for sale at 50% off the old price. People flock to the showrooms and buy.
Later, sales slow down, so the government cuts the price in half again. More people rush in and buy. Sales again slow, so it lowers the price to $900 each. People return to the stores to buy two or three, or half a dozen. Why not? Look how cheap they are! Buyers give Jaguars to their kids and park an extra one on the lawn. Finally, the country is awash in Jaguars.
Alas, sales slow again, and the government panics. It must move more Jaguars, or, according to its theory — ironically now made fact — the economy will recede. People are working three days a week just to pay their taxes so the government can keep producing more Jaguars. If Jaguars stop moving, the economy will stop. So the government announces "stimulus" programs and begins giving Jaguars away. A few more cars move out of the showrooms, but then it ends. Nobody wants any more Jaguars. They don't care if they're free. They can't find a use for them. Production of Jaguars ceases.
It takes years to work through the overhanging supply of Jaguars. The factories close, unemployment soars and tax collections collapse. The economy is wrecked. People can't afford repairs or gasoline, so many of the Jaguars rust away to worthlessness. The number of Jaguars — at best — returns to the level it was before the program began.
The same thing can happen with credit.
It may sound crazy, but suppose the government were to decide that the health of the nation depends upon producing credit and providing it to as many people as possible.
To facilitate that goal, it begins operating credit-production plants all over the country — called Federal Reserve Banks, Federal Home Loan Banks, Fannie Mae, Sallie Mae, and Freddie Mac, all subsidized by monopoly powers or government guarantees — to funnel credit to the public through banks. To everyone's delight, banks begin reducing collateral requirements and thereby offering credit for sale at below-market rates. People flock to the banks and buy.
Later, sales slow down, so banks cut the price again. More people rush in and buy. Sales again slow, so lenders lower the price to 1% with no collateral and no money down. People return to the banks to buy even more credit. Why not? Look how cheap it is! Borrowers use credit to buy houses, boats, and an extra Jaguar to park out on the lawn. Finally, the country is awash in credit.
Alas, sales slow again, and government and banks start to panic. They must move more credit, or, according to its theory — ironically now made fact — the economy will recede. People are working three days a week just to pay the interest on their debt to the banks so the banks can keep offering more credit. If credit stops moving, the economy will stop. So the government announces "stimulus" programs and begins giving credit away, at 0% interest. A few more loans move through the tellers' windows, but then it ends. Nobody wants any more credit. They don't care if it's free. They can't find a use for it. Production of credit ceases.
It takes years to work through the overhanging supply of credit. Banks close, unemployment soars and tax collections collapse. The economy is wrecked. People can't afford to pay interest on their debts, so many IOUs deteriorate to worthlessness. The value of credit — at best — returns to the level it was before the program began.
See how it works?
Is the analogy perfect? No. The idea of pushing credit on people is far more dangerous than the idea of pushing Jaguars on them. In the credit scenario, debtors and even most creditors lose everything in the end. In the Jaguar scenario, at least everyone ends up with a garage full of cars. Of course, the Jaguar scenario is impossible, because the government can't produce value. It can, however, reduce values.
A government that imposes a central bank monopoly, for example, can reduce the incremental value of credit. A monopoly credit system also allows for fraud and theft on a far bigger scale. Instead of government appropriating citizens' labor openly by having them produce cars, monopoly banking and credit machines do so clandestinely by stealing stored labor from citizens' bank accounts by inflating the supply of credit, thereby reducing the value of savings.
Twentieth-century macroeconomic theory — both Keynesian and monetarist — championed the idea that a growing economy needs easy credit. But this is a false theory. Credit should be supplied by the free market, in which case it will almost always be offered intelligently, primarily to producers, not consumers.

The Difference between Focusing on Problems and Focusing on Solutions

Case 1When NASA began the launch of astronauts into space, they found out that the pens wouldn't work at zero gravity (ink won't flow down to the writing surface).To solve this problem, it took them one decade and $12 million. They developed a pen that worked at zero gravity, upside down, underwater, in practically any surface including crystal and in a temperature range from below freezing to over 300 degrees C. And what did the Russians do...?? They used a Pencil!!!Case 2One of the most memorable case studies on Japanese management was the case of the empty soap box, which happened in one of Japan 's biggest cosmetics companies. The company received a complaint that a consumer had bought a soap box that was empty. Immediately the authorities isolated the problem to the assembly line, which transported all the packaged boxes of soap to the delivery department.For some reason, one soap box went through the assembly line empty. Management asked its engineers to solve the problem. Post-haste, the engineers worked hard to devise an X-ray machine with high-resolution monitors manned by two people to watch all the soap boxes that passed through the line to make sure they were not empty. No doubt, they worked hard and they worked fast but they spent a whoopee amount to do so. But when a rank-and-file employee in a small company was posed with the same problem, he did not get into complications of X-rays, etc., but instead came out with another solutionHe bought a strong industrial electric fan and pointed it at the assembly line. He switched the fan on, and as each soap box passed the fan, it simply blew the empty boxes out of the line.Moral Always look for simple solutions. Devise the simplest possible solution that solves the problems.An ant can be killed in two ways......#1) By squashing it with your hand....#2) By bombarding it with a missileChoose your way!!

10 Deadly Signs of Negative Thinking...

The way to overcome negative thoughts and destructive emotions is to develop opposing, positive emotions that are stronger and more powerful. - Quoted Life could be so much better for many people, if they would just spot their negative thinking habits and replace them with positive ones. Negative thinking, in all its many-splendored forms, has a way of creeping into conversations and our thinking without our noticing them. The key to success, in my humble opinion, is learning to spot these thoughts and squash them like little bugs. Then replace them with positive ones. You'll notice a huge difference in everything you do. Let's take a look at 10 common ways that negative thinking emerges get good at spotting these patterns, and practice replacing them with positive thinking patterns. It has made all the difference in the world for me. 10 Deadly Signs of Negative Thinking... 1. I will be happy once I have _____ (or once I earn X). Problem: If you think you can't be happy until you reach a certain point, or until you reach a certain income, or have a certain type of house or car or computer setup, you'll never be happy. That elusive goal is always just out of reach. Once we reach those goals, we are not satisfied we want more. Solution: Learn to be happy with what you have, where you are, and who you are, right at this moment. Happiness doesn't have to be some state that we want to get to eventually it can be found right now. Learn to count your blessings, and see the positive in your situation. This might sound simplistic, but it works. 2. I wish I were as ____ as (a celebrity, friend, co-worker). Problem: We'll never be as pretty, as talented, as rich, as sculpted, as cool, as everyone else. There will always be someone better, if you look hard enough. Therefore, if we compare ourselves to others like this, we will always pale, and will always fail, and will always feel bad about ourselves. This is no way to be happy. Solution: Stop comparing yourself to others, and look instead at yourself what are your strengths, your accomplishments, your successes, however small? What do you love about yourself? Learn to love who you are, right now, not who you want to become. There is good in each of us, love in each of us, and a wonderful human spirit in every one of us. 3. Seeing others becoming successful makes me jealous and resentful. Problem: First, this assumes that only a small number of people can be successful. In truth, many, many people can be successful in different ways. Solution: Learn to admire the success of others, and learn from it, and be happy for them, by empathizing with them and understanding what it must be like to be them. And then turn away from them, and look at yourself you can be successful too, in whatever you choose to do. And even more, you already are successful. Look not at those above you in the social ladder, but those below you there are always millions of people worse off than you, people who couldn't even read this article or afford a computer. In that light, you are a huge success. 4. I am a miserable failure I can't seem to do anything right. Problem: Everyone is a failure, if you look at it in certain ways. Everyone has failed, many times, at different things. I have certainly failed so many times I cannot count them and I continue to fail, daily. However, looking at your failures as failures only makes you feel bad about yourself. By thinking in this way, we will have a negative self-image and never move on from here. Solution: See your successes and ignore your failures. Look back on your life, in the last month, or year, or 5 years. And try to remember your successes. If you have trouble with this, start documenting them keep a success journal, either in a notebook or online. Document your success each day, or each week. When you look back at what you've accomplished, over a year, you will be amazed. It's an incredibly positive feeling. 5. I'm going to beat so-and-so no matter what I'm better than him. And there's no way I'll help him succeed he might beat me. Problem: Competitiveness assumes that there is a small amount of gold to be had, and I need to get it before he does. It makes us into greedy, back-stabbing, hurtful people. We try to claw our way over people to get to success, because of our competitive feelings. For example, if a blogger wants to have more subscribers than another blogger, he may never link to or mention that other blogger. However, who is to say that my subscribers can't also be yours? People can read and subscribe to more than one blog. Solution: Learn to see success as something that can be shared, and learn that if we help each other out, we can each have a better chance to be successful. Two people working towards a common goal are better than two people trying to beat each other up to get to that goal. There is more than enough success to go around. Learn to think in terms of abundance rather than scarcity. 6. Dammit! Why do these bad things always happen to me? Problem: Bad things happen to everybody. If we dwell on them, they will frustrate us and bring us down. Solution: See bad things as a part of the ebb and flow of life. Suffering is a part of the human condition but it passes. All pain goes away, eventually. Meanwhile, don't let it hold you back. Don't dwell on bad things, but look forward towards something good in your future. And learn to take the bad things in stride, and learn from them. Bad things are actually opportunities to grow and learn and get stronger, in disguise. 7. You can't do anything right! Why can't you be like ____ ? Problem: This can be said to your child or your subordinate or your sibling. The problem? Comparing two people, first of all, is always a fallacy. People are different, with different ways of doing things, different strengths and weaknesses, different human characteristics. If we were all the same, we'd be robots. Second, saying negative things like this to another person never helps the situation. It might make you feel better, and more powerful, but in truth, it hurts your relationship, it will actually make you feel negative, and it will certainly make the other person feel negative and more likely to continue negative behavior. Everyone loses. Solution: Take the mistakes or bad behavior of others as an opportunity to teach. Show them how to do something. Second, praise them for their positive behavior, and encourage their success. Last, and most important, love them for who they are, and celebrate their differences. 8. Your work sucks. It's super lame. You are a moron and I hope you never reproduce. Problem: I've actually gotten this comment before. It feels wonderful. However, let's look at it not from the perspective of the person receiving this kind of comment but from the perspective of the person giving it. How does saying something negative like this help you? I guess it might feel good to vent if you feel like your time has been wasted. But really, how much of your time has been wasted? A few minutes? And whose fault is that? The bloggers or yours? In truth, making negative comments just keeps you in a negative mindset. It's also not a good way to make friends. Solution: Learn to offer constructive solutions, first of all. Instead of telling someone their blog sucks, or that a post is lame, offer some specific suggestions for improvement. Help them get better. If you are going to take the time to make a comment, make it worth your time. Second, learn to interact with people in a more positive way it makes others feel good and it makes you feel better about yourself. And you can make some great friends this way. That's a good thing. 9. Insulting People Back Problem: If someone insults you or angers you in some way, insulting them back and continuing your anger only transfers their problem to you. This person was probably having a bad day (or a bad year) and took it out on you for some reason. If you reciprocate, you are now having a bad day too. His problem has become yours. Not only that, but the cycle of insults can get worse and worse until it results in violence or other negative consequences for both of you. Solution: Let the insults or negative comments of others slide off you like Teflon. Don't let their problem become yours. In fact, try to understand their problem more why would someone say something like that? What problems are they going through? Having a little empathy for someone not only makes you understand that their comment is not about you, but it can make you feel and act in a positive manner towards them and make you feel better about yourself in the process. 10. I don't think I can do this I don't have enough discipline. Maybe some other time. Problem: If you don't think you can do something, you probably won't. Especially for the big stuff. Discipline has nothing to do with it motivation and focus has everything to do with it. And if you put stuff off for “some other time”, you'll never get it done. Negative thinking like this inhibits us from accomplishing anything. Solution: Turn your thinking around: you can do this! You don't need discipline. Find ways to make yourself a success at your goal. If you fail, learn from your mistakes, and try again. Instead of putting a goal off for later, start now. And focus on one goal at a time, putting all of your energy into it, and getting as much help from others as you can. You can really move mountains if you start with positive thinking.

How to kill a Lion - Banking style?


HSBC Method:
Hire a lion. Give him full rest & make him lazy, Pay him more than his
Expectation, never ask him to do any work for six months, after six
Months tell him that now you have to fulfill you your yearly target within six
Months otherwise u will be kicked out from the jungle. Lion dies due to
Fear, that if he lose s this "lazy animals jungle", where he will go.

ICICI method:
Hire a lion. Give him hell lot of work and pay him lower salary than his
Politically astute peers. Restructure his job, position, boss, colleagues,
Designation, department, salary, location every 6 months.
Remove all lions above 40 from the organization by giving those VRS.
If he kills 2 goats a day, give him target of killing 20 elephants a day,
When there are just 10 elephants in the jungle. Lion dies of exhaustion,
Overkill and restructuring.

HDFC method:
Hire a lion and ask him to meow like a cat. Give him lots of ESOPs and grass
to eat. He will die eventually of hope and starvation.

Citibank method:
Hire the lion, make him take 14 tests and tell him that if he doesn't score
90% he will lose the job. Ask him to extract 60 kg meat out of a 40kg goat.
Lion dies of the strain.

ABN AMRO method:
Hire the lion. Give him high impossible targets and expect a premature
Delivery of these targets. If the targets are delivered, clap for him in a
town hall and if not delivered humiliate him regularly. Lion either dies
of excitement or starts behaving like Tom Hanks in Terminal.

StanChart method:
Hire a lion; motivate him to outshine other lions in the jungle. Load him
with impractical targets and if he finds the prey, ensure jackals in the
Jungles snatch the prey and the lion dies in oblivion......

Kotak method:
Hire a lion; load him with targets to focus on value instead of volume.
Every quarter change the style and make his life miserable. If he survives
in the system reward him with a hefty bonus.

RBI Method:
Hire a lion and give him a 3000 page circular on how to kill a goat. Amend
the circular at least three times a day. Send him on inspection to the
jungle, where he can threaten to cancel the hunting license of any fox,
wolf, bear, jackal etc who have violated any provision of the 3000 page
circular. Lion dies of boredom.

SBI Method:
Recruits a lion, gives him the power of mouse. Lion dies of over
Expectation and no results.............

IDBI method:

he is actually a clerk. Expect to work as all rounder. Lion dies in
Frustration or escape to another jungle.

Deutsche Bank Method:
Hire a Lion. Tell him that you need to work most of the day & half the
night. Also tell him that all the Lions in the jungle are doing it & he
Shouldn’t mind doing it. Tell him that the work he does would make him
king, even though he would be paid like a pauper. Change the look of the
jungle twice in a year & tell him there's a new challenge for him, although
the animals & trees in the jungle remain the same (beats me.......what’s
the challenge). Give the Lion some irrationally motivational talks & tell
him to wait till the grass turns blue in the jungle.
Lion dies waiting.

Barclays Method:
Hire a lion by giving telling him how he will make a kill financially by
Coming to them. Pay him less and still convince him how his income has gone
up, confuse him completely about his financial condition. Once onboard put
him in a small jungle which no one has heard of and has no prey. Ask him to
go to other jungles and bring the prey first to his jungle, then wait before
killing it. He will die of traveling between jungles, long wait and
confusion
