      wonder where the jobs went...!!??? 
                              You must read the ending...  

      The Emma Maersk, part of a Danish shipping line, 
                      is shown in the photos below.

      What a ship -- no wonder "Made in China ' is displacing North American made
      goods big time. This monster transports goods across the Pacific in just 5 days!! 
      This is one of three ships presently in service, with another two ships commissioned to be completed
      in 2012.                        

      These ships were commissioned by Wal-Mart to get all their goods and stuff
      from China . They hold an incredible 15,000 containers and have a 207 foot deck 
      beam!! The full crew is just 13 people on a ship longer than a US Aircraft Carrier 
      (which has a crew of 5,000) 
      With it's 207' beam, it is too big to fit through the Panama or Suez Canals .

      It is strictly transpacific. Cruise speed: 31 knots. 

      The goods arrive 4 days before the typical container ship (18-20 knots) on a 
      China-to-California  run.  91% of Walmart products are made in China . 
      So this behemoth is hugely competitive even when carrying perishable goods.      

      The ship was built in five sections. The sections floated together and then welded.   
      The command bridge is higher than a 10-story building and has 11 cargo crane 
      rigs that can operate simultaneously unloading the entire ship in less than two 

                     Additional info:

                     Country of Origin - Denmark
                          Length - 1,302 ft
                          Width - 207 ft
                          Net cargo - 123,200 tons 
                          Engine - 14 cylinders in-line diesel engine (110,000 BHP) 
                          Cruise Speed - 31 knots
                          Cargo capacity - 15,000 TEU (1 TEU = 20 cubic feet)
                          Crew - 13 people
                          First Trip - Sept. 08, 2006 
                          Construction cost - US $145,000,000+
                      Silicone painting applied to the ship bottom reduces water 
                      resistance and saves 317,000 gallons of diesel per year.







                     Editorial Comment!
      A recent documentary in late March, 2010 on the History Channel noted that  
      all of these containers are shipped back to China ,
      EMPTY!! Yep, that's right.  
      We send nothing back on these ships. What does that tell you about    
      the current financial state of this country? Just keep buying those imported             
      goods (mostly gadgets) until you run out of money. 

      Then you may wonder what the cause of unemployment (maybe even your job) 
      in the U.S. and Canada  might be??

      'Nuff said??

      This message, if any, surely deserves forwarding, doesn't it?
      (This is only one of the reasons why you should not  shop at Wallymart...that and the
          fact that the goods are mostly inferior to North American made!)
