Symo Kurka: LRA speech
Cindy Ecksol inserts eyelid props
Symo Kurka: Friends, citizens, guests of he CDS.
Symo Kurka: When Sonja opened the thread "What we like about the CDS" in our forum
Symo Kurka: somebody of you wrote a sentence which i liked a lot. Let me quote here:
Symo Kurka: "In CDS I like all the unsung heroes who spend hours and hours of time trying to realize a dream when we aren't even sure what the dream is."
Symo Kurka: Just a few words about dreams.
Symo Kurka: We cannot live without dreams, we would be monsters.
Symo Kurka: The Dream is Life.
Symo Kurka: And here in our community we all are following a Dream, one Dream.
Symo Kurka: his Dream belongs to all Cds citizens of past and present times
Symo Kurka: and we know it's a complex, long lasting dream: the first RA meeting was held in january 2005, exactly four years ago.
Symo Kurka: How many dreams do last four years??
Symo Kurka: We all must be grateful to oldies overall, the "unsung heros" who still believe in this dream and still work hard for it.
Symo Kurka: To them I ask to be patient with newbies if they soemtimes repeat what you already know.
Symo Kurka: Newbies are precious because they bring in new energies for the Dream.
Symo Kurka: And to CDS newbies I ask to be patient with oldies if sometimes they seem to be elitarian.
Symo Kurka: CDS Oldies are precious because they are experienced.
Symo Kurka: So let's go on alltogether building our Dream.
Symo Kurka: No hurry to know "what the dream is".
Symo Kurka: We are slowly discovering what the Dream is, like children who discover the world.
Symo Kurka: Best wishes to you all.
Symo Kurka: I'm finished
Sudane Erato: bravo Symo!!
Jamie Palisades smiles and applauds
Lilith Ivory: applause

Symo Kurka: Ok I'll have in mind
Symo Kurka: Now next point

Symo Kurka: The RA has to confirm the two nominations
Soro Dagostino: So move
Symo Kurka: And i personally would proceed to vote
Cindy Ecksol: second
Symo Kurka: For confirmation, say aye if youa agree
Justice Soothsayer: It would be nice to hear from the nominees
Pip Torok: aye
Cindy Ecksol: aye
Soro Dagostino: Aye
Justice Soothsayer: No. Not that I don't believe they would be good, just that we should hear from them first.
Symo Kurka: Justice?
Sonja Strom: I would like to hear a little bit from them, like maybe what they would like to bring to the SC --
Sonja Strom: it can be something short.
Symo Kurka: This was not in the agenda, which is quite stuck and btw already late
Jamie Palisades: so there are, just as an inquiry for a poit of order, Mr. LRA, 3 votes in favor and 2 against and you have not voted?
Justice Soothsayer: We've had a lot of discussion about what the role of the SC should be in our demoncracy. I'd like to hear what the nominees have to say about that question.
Justice Soothsayer: We have 30 days to confirm.
Sonja Strom: The agenda is for us, not the other way around.
Cindy Ecksol: I agree
Pip Torok: agree
Cindy Ecksol: delia is here, I'm sure she can speak for herself
Symo Kurka: I suggest that we vorte now and we invite our dear friends to explain theur intentions in next RA meeting
Cindy Ecksol: and we should not delay confirming at least one member
Justice Soothsayer: Putting thecare before the horse, i fear.
Justice Soothsayer: *cart
Sonja Strom: I will withhold my vote until I hear something from them.
Justice Soothsayer: It is hearing the views of the nominees that should inform the vote, not the other way around.
Soro Dagostino: Point of Order?
Jamie Palisades sighs quietly. Mr Lra, is the vote pending, or withdrawn?
Pip Torok: i will withold my vote as well
Symo Kurka: Funny guys
Soro Dagostino: Is that an abstention?
Symo Kurka: We will discuss it in next RA ok?
Cindy Ecksol: symo, excuse me
Cindy Ecksol: we cannot leave hear without confirming at least one new SC member
Symo Kurka: Cindy?
Symo Kurka: Ok
Symo Kurka: Delia
Cindy Ecksol: please allow discussion in the form of a short address from delia
Cindy Ecksol: than you.
Symo Kurka: can you shortly tell us what ?your view of SC is?
Symo Kurka: Delia?
Delia Lake: yes, Symo. the SC has the specific role of certifying elections
Delia Lake: and also of hearing disputes especially related to the CDS consitution
Pip Torok: brb telephone
Justice Soothsayer: Delia, under what circumstances shoul dthe SC invalidate a law passed by the democratically elected RA?
Delia Lake: the SC should invalidate a law if it is in conflict with the constitution
Justice Soothsayer: and how do you decide that?
Symo Kurka: Delia?
Symo Kurka: I suppose somebody crashed
Symo Kurka: and .. sorry
Symo Kurka: can we go on?
Cindy Ecksol: symo, I suggest we defer the vote until after other business
Sonja Strom: hm, maybe we can move to another topic, and return to this one later.
Justice Soothsayer: good idea
Symo Kurka: ok
Symo Kurka: next topic
Symo Kurka: I agree
Symo Kurka: wow
Symo Kurka: lo+
Sonja Strom: Aliasi might come along too.
Sudane Erato: :)
Justice Soothsayer: Let's have a little discussion before we vote on this one ;)
Symo Kurka: Oh sure guys
Symo Kurka: My ears are getting big, I'm anxious to hear
Sonja Strom: lol
Soro Dagostino: Nominate Jamie Palisades
Symo Kurka: But I see nobody asking to sp?eak
Cindy Ecksol: second
Justice Soothsayer: Symo, RA members don't have to ask to speak about items on the agenda.
Jamie Palisades smiles. Should I simply indicate that I accept, as a candidate? I might have posted something along those lines to the Forum , so it may not be a surprise to those present.
Justice Soothsayer: I do have one or two questions for Jamie
Jamie Palisades: Perhaps someone, say, CSDF members, have questions? :)
Symo Kurka: Justice, you said [8:35] Justice Soothsayer: Let's have a little discussion before we vote on this one ;)
Soro Dagostino: Do you pay overtime?
Jamie Palisades: ah :) Justice, Prefer a short introductory comment from me first, or questions first?
Soro Dagostino: :)
Symo Kurka: Do i have to intend this silence as an agreement to Jamie Palisades confirmation?
Justice Soothsayer: Feel free to make comments first, Jamie, if you like, though you have an excellent statement on the forum. Then I would like to ask a question.
Jamie Palisades: Thank you. Just this, then:
Jamie Palisades: My own views on items f acing us are fairly clear .. for one thing I have posted regualrly reports and ideas to the forum, where their are quite serachable .. and get a lot of replies as well :) Not all chancellors, ah, chose to use the forum that way, but following the model of my SP predecessor Aliasi, I thought it a good idea to get ideas our for pulic comment.
So if you want to know what I have in mind :) read the forums. As justice says, It's all there....
Jamie Palisades: Of course, my own most recently posting, here, reflect my most current concerns, and those which colleaguges have helped me identify:
Jamie Palisades: I'm very pleased with our success at events programming and clearning up adminstrative matters -- the website, prims, land monitoring methods so far -- this last term.
Jamie Palisades: MOderately satisfied wit a very conservative, safe resposnse to the messes in economic and LL land rules we encountered this last six months.
Jamie Palisades: Not so satisfied with our responses so far to Arria's proposal and the AL Andalaus opportunity.
Jamie Palisades: I expect those will be active topics for the RA this term
Jamie Palisades: and I except us to approach them, as all things, more in the spirit of Symo's comments this morning ...
Jamie Palisades: .. how to facilitate a diversity of dreams and creativity ... and in a fair, safe way ....
Jamie Palisades: .. not was a not-onvented-here game of blocking each other's ideas ni favor of stasis, or in favor of one's own.
Justice Soothsayer raises hand
Jamie Palisades: Horse traduign does not refeolect well on us. I look forward to CDS continuing to leave that old style behind. And reqritign ourselves as faciltators, not political gamers. ,.
Jamie Palisades: Thanks :)
Jamie Palisades: Justice?
Sonja Strom claps
Justice Soothsayer: Jamie, first let me say that you have done an outstanding job as Chancellor.
Justice Soothsayer: These have been very challenging times, both for CDS and the outside world (linden and RL) and you have balanced things well.
Delia Lake apologizes for crashing
Justice Soothsayer: I just want to follow up on your comment about Al Andalus.
Justice Soothsayer: What are your thoughts on how we should approach AA? Should we consider this as a one-off opportunity, or engage in some structural changes to accommodate the opportunity for closer ties? Should this be a legislative initiative, or an executive one?
Jamie Palisades: Justice, I think we need to make it safe for the to come here, Which has three parts. and then there are two considerations on our side.
Jamie Palisades: let's leave legisl-exec for last and concentrate on the substance first
Jamie Palisades: thigns they need as I see it:
Jamie Palisades: -- an answer to whether we'd affiliate only in a physical move, or leaving both estates wher ethey are
Jamie Palisades: -- a genuine comfort level with the stavility, maturity, and commitment ot diversity from our government, so that they can happiyl be subject to our laws without concern about disruption to their own "life", which is trundling around just fine.
Jamie Palisades: (in otehr words, if they join us, do we start doing all sorts if thigns that mess them up?)
Jamie Palisades: :) the right answer would be "no" by the way
Jamie Palisades: and third, from their end, a structure to allow them to continue doing their programming
Jamie Palisades: in other words
Jamie Palisades: if they estate adds to our balacne sheet, theyd probably lilke some basis for believing that all the combined event money does not go to accordionsm beer and togas :)
Jamie Palisades: that's THEIR three issues as I see it
Jamie Palisades: after months of meeting and thinking - GENTLY, not in the triumphalist conquistdor tone I have seen from a few of the overenthusiastic
Jamie Palisades: now
Jamie Palisades: CDS, WE, have some concerns too
Jamie Palisades: I see two
Jamie Palisades: one is whetehr they are fiscally stable in a manner that would make them a good addition for us, and not degrade out position
Jamie Palisades: that's math
Jamie Palisades: the answer appears to be yes, but i expect to bring a case to the RA on that
Jamie Palisades: the second is the subjective one :D
Jamie Palisades: does CDS want to do this?
Jamie Palisades: well
Jamie Palisades: heh
Jamie Palisades: many of my dear friends here feel strongly that CDS is a representative democracythrough its allpowerful factions
Jamie Palisades: so I guess we find our if CDS wants to do this first by inforaml postings of plans to the forum, and citizern feedback'...
Jamie Palisades: and then with an RA vote :)
Jamie Palisades: which leads me to my final point, your question about who ACTS here
Jamie Palisades: it works in my view exactly like a native sim additionb
Jamie Palisades: some financial feasibility details must be developed and brought to RA
Jamie Palisades: that's my jon
Jamie Palisades: job - assume you reappoint me to it
Jamie Palisades: and the RA must approve maps and land acqusitions and covenants
Jamie Palisades: as lways
Jamie Palisades: abasically, a theme and L$ feasibility decision
Jamie Palisades: done, thanks. Did I answer ?
Symo Kurka: Ahhhh lawyers.... Jamie the subject is important but we are monopolizing here the attention on AA ... while we just have to confirm (or not) our efficient chancellor...
Justice Soothsayer: Thanks for a thoughtful answer to a complicated question.
Symo Kurka: Great
Jamie Palisades: oh, yes, and also, I talk too much :D it;s the transparency thing
Soro Dagostino: Call the question
Symo Kurka: any other (short) question???
Sonja Strom: Yes
Sonja Strom: Jamie, you said "Horse traduign does not refeolect well on us. I look forward to CDS continuing to leave that old style behind." On the surface this sounds good, but I am curious what you actually mean by it.
Sonja Strom: First, how do you define "horse trading"?
Symo Kurka smiles
Justice Soothsayer: Symo understanding the chancello'rs view of the proper executive-legislative balance is important in deciding whether to hire a candidate for the job.
Sonja Strom: Second, could you give a specific example?
Jamie Palisades: well, Sonja, I have seen a lot of energy in CDS that SHOUDL go to promoting and assisting citizens with their creative projects diverted instead to plots on how to stop projects :)
Pip Torok: (back now)
Jamie Palisades: or , takign good projects and making of them games -- and ingoring the projects themelves.
Jamie Palisades: And no, I decline to name bad actors, I do not think that promotes our efforts at collaboration. but let me give an illustratin of something badly handled by us all.
Cindy Ecksol: here here!!
Sonja Strom: I think I see that, like not helping to make things better, but only being critical?
Jamie Palisades: Yes
Jamie Palisades: exactly so
Sonja Strom: ok
Jamie Palisades: people with a critique should bring alternatives, not just attacks
Jamie Palisades: or else we lose our creatives :)
Sonja Strom: An illustration of what your are talking about would be helpful for the understanding of all of us, I think.
Jamie Palisades: Well let me mnake a short comment then, and see if in obediance to Symo I can make it compact.
Jamie Palisades: Arria brought us a cool idea regading the monastery.
Sonja Strom: Sure, but the question was posed to you by a member of the RA ;).
Jamie Palisades: Only a fool owuld miss the fact that this was a genuine, positive attempt to contribute somethign substantial to CDS.
Jamie Palisades grins at sonja - me? speak briefly? me? heh
Jamie Palisades: Arrisa's proposla got tied up in our economic and void pricing mess
Jamie Palisades: but
Jamie Palisades: even before that
Jamie Palisades: it was rushed to the RA in sort of a half-formed, undefined plan
Jamie Palisades: so it did NOT get the kind of attention up front that would have given it the best chance of success
Jamie Palisades: we are a community
Jamie Palisades: we need to compromise, listen and bend -- all of us
Jamie Palisades: instead, it became a rigid take it or leave it
Jamie Palisades: not our best way to encouarge contributios :)
Jamie Palisades: done
Sonja Strom: ok, thanks
Symo Kurka: Other questions folks?
Cindy Ecksol: I move we vote
Justice Soothsayer: Not from me. OK to vote.
Sonja Strom: Second
Symo Kurka: Ok
Pip Torok: what motion are we voting for?
Symo Kurka: Does Ra confirm Jamie >Palisades as Chancellor for this term?
Pip Torok: ah
Cindy Ecksol: I move we vote to affirm Jamie as chancellor by affirmation
Symo Kurka: say aye if you want him
Justice Soothsayer votes Aye
Pip Torok: aye
Cindy Ecksol: aye
Sonja Strom: aye
Soro Dagostino: Aye
Symo Kurka: and aye

Symo Kurka: Is Ms Delia Lake awake?
Delia Lake: yes :)
Symo Kurka: Ok
Symo Kurka: i give five minutes to fulfill the previous subject
Jamie Palisades: Six votes, thanks, my correction.
Sonja Strom: All RA members present.
Justice Soothsayer: where we left off was the question of the role of the SC in invalidating laws that conflict with the constitution. I'd like to know whether Dalia would be reluctant to do so, and how she would determine whether a law conflicts with the constitution.
Symo Kurka: No more questions for Delia?
Soro Dagostino: Relogging -- so much lag
Sonja Strom: ok
Delia Lake: Justice, I would not be reluctant to flag a law that seemed to me to be in violation of the Constitution
Cindy Ecksol notices 70,183 in world
Delia Lake: the process as I understand it is one of review, public notice, and discussion before the SC votes on a matter of conflict
Delia Lake: It seems to me that is a good process as it should be transparent
Justice Soothsayer: Thanks, Dalia.
Justice Soothsayer: sorry, Delia.
Sonja Strom: I move we vote to confirm Delia as a new member of the Scientific Council.
Pip Torok: seconded
Symo Kurka: Ok vote aye for Delia's confirmation in SC
Cindy Ecksol: aye
Pip Torok: aye
Justice Soothsayer: Aye
Sonja Strom: aye
Symo Kurka: aye and best wishes Delia

Jamie Palisades: /Me listens to Sonja, raises his hand for afterwards
Sonja Strom: Jamie?
Jamie Palisades: Let me just say, with affection for all factions including my own, that I am a skeptic of platforms. Some hold them in great esteem. But to quote my mother, of sainted memory ... action talks, bombast walks :) Well. It was SOME word with a "b" anyway. So let us all strive to impress our colleagues with well-drafted adopted legislation and effective acts, not plans :)
Symo Kurka: You can speak Jamie
Gwyneth Llewelyn *chuckles*
Jamie Palisades: I have read a lot of creat CDS faction platforms :D
Jamie Palisades: perhaps we could pave the road to sim 5 with them :)
Jamie Palisades: done
Moon Adamant: :)
Symo Kurka: We are not speaking about platforms, we are speaking about goals and priorities
Gwyneth Llewelyn: Yes, goals and priorities.
Justice Soothsayer: Indeed, the platforms DO pa ve the role to our next sims(s).
Symo Kurka: which makes some difference
Symo Kurka: anyway
Symo Kurka: I'll try to summarize all your documents for next week

Symo Kurka: Point b) possible new RA organization
Symo Kurka: it's postponed
Symo Kurka: but i just want you to know
Symo Kurka: My personal opinion is that RA members should work in "commissions", involving non RA citizens.
Gwyneth Llewelyn: uh-huh
Jamie Palisades raises hand for question
Symo Kurka: Commissions' subjects could be, for instance:
Cindy Ecksol: symo, perhaps you could put some details on what you have in mind on the forum this week
Symo Kurka: 1- CDS economy - commerce - business
2- Territorial policy
3- Culture, education, sports
4- Foreign affairs
But I am open to other suggestions.
Jamie Palisades: (it will wait)
Symo Kurka: We will not discuss this today
Symo Kurka: just have in mind
Symo Kurka: Sure Cindy
Symo Kurka: All governments have ministries and paRLIAMENT commissions
Symo Kurka: ..
Symo Kurka: Now
Symo Kurka: as I was saying this item is postponed to discussion in next RA
Jamie Palisades: Symo
Jamie Palisades: sory, still have question
Symo Kurka: I ask Gwyn or Justice
Symo Kurka: kk
Symo Kurka: yes Jamie?
Justice Soothsayer waits for Jamie
Jamie Palisades: Justice, did RA not inherit form last term a need to designate a deputy RA for continuity purposes? I do not feel a rush - something for Symo to consult with you all about -- but just wanted to confirm that the post still now exists?
Symo Kurka: well
Gwyneth Llewelyn: Yes, Justice mentioned that before.
Symo Kurka: yes
Jamie Palisades: OK good thx, sorry if I missed it
Justice Soothsayer: Yes, we have the LRA pro tempore position to fill
Gwyneth Llewelyn *nods*
Gwyneth Llewelyn has indicated consent to be recorded.
Symo Kurka: So will Justice or Gwyn briefly report on this subject?
Justice Soothsayer: We could do that now, if you'd like. Under RA organization we should also fill RA Archivist and decide on RA rules for the term,
Gwyneth Llewelyn: Exactly.
Justice Soothsayer: symo, I'm not sure what you are looking for as a report for last term, but I'll just mention that Jamie has already highlighted two....
Justice Soothsayer: items left undone from last term, the Monastery proposal and continuing discussions re Al Anadlus. I would also add that
Justice Soothsayer: we still have the Electoral Commission, though it did not garner much attention last term.
Gwyneth Llewelyn: as well as the Ethics comission (also little attended)
Justice Soothsayer: We also have continuing concerns over vacancy rates and redevelopment of CN and sales in LA.
Justice Soothsayer: Yes, Jamie, Ethics Commission too. Makes me wonder about effectiveness of the Commission model of government, but we'll save that for another time.
Symo Kurka: Ok Thank you Justice
Symo Kurka: Any other items or proposals before we adjourn?
Gwyneth Llewelyn: vote on the deputy LRA first?
Justice Soothsayer: I'll also move to adopt last terms RA rules for this term, unless you would like to make that the first item of business next time.
Gwyneth Llewelyn seconds Justice of course
Symo Kurka: Justice please where can i read about it?
Cindy Ecksol thinks it sounds like we should defer rules discussion to next week
Symo Kurka agrees with Cindy
Justice Soothsayer: the rules? looking for link in forums
Soro Dagostino: Move Postponment
Jamie Palisades: it;s in each meeting notice
Cindy Ecksol: second
Jamie Palisades: like this
Jamie Palisades: "The CDS Representative Assembly will meet on 1st February 2009 at 8:00 am SLT (US Pacific Daylight Time) = 17:00 CEU at the Praetorium in Colonia Nova. Yes this location si confirmed. The meeting is expected to last up to 1.30 hours. Please see the following link regarding applicable procedural rules, which constrain some of our agenda and speaking time-limit practices: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1701"
Symo Kurka: ah ok
Symo Kurka: ok
Soro Dagostino: Motion is non-debateble
Justice Soothsayer: http://forums.slcds.info/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1701
Jamie Palisades: but yeah, give everyone a week, on that and deputy LR, woudl be my advice :D not to debate
Soro Dagostino: It is on the floor
Justice Soothsayer: OK with postponing rules and LRA pro temport to next week.
Symo Kurka: That would be kind for new members
Gwyneth Llewelyn: I'm fine too...
Cindy Ecksol: whoever put it there can withdraw
Symo Kurka: I move to adjourn guys
Justice Soothsayer: sounds like we have a consensus to table
Justice Soothsayer: But Symo, rules also require a period of open discussion.
Justice Soothsayer: Not that I have anything, but perhaps someone else does.

Soro Dagostino: I am sorry, but there is a motion of precedence before the body.
Cindy Ecksol: who proposed the vote on rules? must be withdrawn.....
Soro Dagostino: It is a simple vote to postpone.
Justice Soothsayer: Cindy, I raised the rules issue and said it was OK to postpone to next time.
Cindy Ecksol: justice, you moved -- please withdraw
Cindy Ecksol: ok :-)
Cindy Ecksol: ok, soro?
Soro Dagostino: Yes.
Jamie Palisades smiles -the adjounement or the postponment? Ladie and gentlemen, the quickest way out here is EITHERr for justice to withdraw OR better for symo to ackowledgement that Soro's priovilieged postposement motion passes with out objection
Justice Soothsayer: I then suggested Symo hold on his motion to adjourn until we have complied with the rules calling for a period of open discussion in case anyone else has anything to add.
Gwyneth Llewelyn *giggles*
Jamie Palisades: then you have symo's privileged adjounrment motion :)
Cindy Ecksol: justice has withdrawn
Symo Kurka: Justice has withdrawn, the discussion is postponed to next RA, we are moving to adjourn
Soro Dagostino: Yay!
Cindy Ecksol is waiting to see if anyone has any open discussion items
Justice Soothsayer: Not that anyone seems to be bursting with comments, I just thought it would be helpful to afford the chance.
Gwyneth Llewelyn seconds the motion to adjourn
Cindy Ecksol: aye
Pip Torok: aye
Soro Dagostino: aye
Sonja Strom: aye
Rose Springvale: would like to sneak in an annoucement to remember the ball today
