Oak Cove conversion works have started (it will be a hotel again). The renovation of the Sandcastle and the AO (originally scheduled for December) was started this week and planned to be completed before the grand opening of the Super Power Building.
37 new catering and maintenance staff members have been added to Flag Crew, and 11 more are in training. [What a bizarre thing to publicly announce.... probably reprieved some people from the RPF. But this is like McDonald's advertising how many people they have cleaning their kitchen. Very strange.]
Purif RD: 76 pcs are on it (using 100% of the available sauna capacity), 23 completions, 2600 Purif WDAH.
Objectives: 430 people are on it, 2500 WDAH. [5 hours a week? On full time Objectives? Huh. He didnt really say this as a big plus?]
GAT II Objectives for Cornerstone members: 227 are on it, 28 completions. A video of success stories was shown, where an OT VIII, 3 L’s Completion said that these new Objectives handle things that no other part of the Bridge addresses and they are like an OT level and it is a new hope for mankind. [This is really sad, they actually promote this sort of "success" -- this person never did objectives before??? They did all their OT Levels and 3 L's and had never completed Objectives? And now they announce without irony that this like a new OT Level. Just proves that you could tell people that eating a ream of paper was a "newly discovered process that had been suppressed by SP's." You then get them to pay you for this "breakthrough that is going to make planetary clearing a reality" and sit them in a room and tell them to eat paper. And when they finished they would invent a glowing success story to make it sound like THEY had achieved some new exalted status. And not even 20% of the suckers have even completed the re-do of the re-do of their Objectives???]
Completions: 225 Golden Age of Knowledge courses, 23 Purif RDs, 28 Objectives, 18 Expanded Grades, 7 Clears and 6 OT VIIs. [Golden Age of Knowledge Courses?? People are STILL doing those and they are still being promoted. The other stats are feeble, not really a surprise when everyone has been ordered onto Purif and Objectives -- the only other game in town is try to get some "OT VII Comps" so they can be routed onto Super Power...]
Outer org trainees:
- over 20 million Student Points were produced. [Hip hip hooray. I think. Possibly.]
- The last 58 trainees have completed the Pro TRs Course, so all 1244 trainees have completed Student Hat and Pro TRs. [Well, it's about time]
- Upper Indocs completions: 69 this week / 1180 total.
- Metering completions: 126 / 1098.
The majority of the trainees are already on their specialized training lineups (auditor, Sup, W/C’er training). A few have already completed the entire training, but all trainees will be fired back to their orgs simultaneously. [If He is sticking to this plan then the release of GAG II can be scheduled for New Years Event as it is observable at the current rate they will NOT all be done in time]
A video of the new Tokyo Org building was shown, which is an 8-story building on a central location. [This is the 4,321st building to be "shown" -- some orgs have gone through several before anything was purchased and some have purchased several before they started renovating them and some have purchased and never started renovating. The "Ideal Org" program has ground to a halt too -- still talking about opening Kaohsuing which was announced as an "IAS Org" back in 2004 or 2005 and that's about it. Been milking that one for a while now].
Super Power auditor trainees:
100 are on this training, currently co-auditing the rundown, and they have audited 4501 perceptics in total. [The figure has gone from 200 to 135 to 115 to 100. At this rate by the time the building opens there will be 3 auditors and 250 maintenance workers -- all the auditors that didnt make it because they smiled at an RTC person when on training.]
All Sea Org members working in the Super Power building will get brand new special uniforms and this was presented on the graduation. [Seriously? The King of MEST is telling them about "upcoming" uniforms?]
.. and He is still in town. [That's a big relief for everyone located in other parts of the world...]
