Bill Shorten is rumpled, ambitious and articulate, WikiLeaks cables reveal

FEDERAL Minister Bill Shorten is "rumpled"(всклокоченный), articulate(уверенный) and ambitious, according to US diplomatic cables(донесение) released today by WikiLeaks.

The Assistant Treasurer makes no bones(ничего не скрывает) about his ambitions in federal politics.

During a June 11 meeting, Mr Shorten told the Consul General that “he did not take this job (as an MP) to stand still',' according to a cable sent by the US consul in Melbourne.

The observation made in 2009 will come as no surprise to those who have being watching the former union leader's career, but is sure to be an embarrassment for him and the Government.

It will also feed speculation that Mr Shorten might be positioning himself to replace Prime Minister Julia Gillard.

The Government routinely (как повелось) declines to comment on WikiLeaks material.

“Bill Shorten is part of a new generation of articulate, young Labor union leaders which includes South Australian MP Mark Butler and Victorian MP Richard Marles who were both promoted to Parliamentary Secretaries in the June 6 reshuffle,'' the diplomat noted after meeting Mr Shorten.

“Shorten was highly critical, however, of current Australian union leadership, saying that there have been insufficient efforts spent on grooming the next generation of leaders.''

As for the man himself, the diplomatic appraisal was mixed (сумбурный). He was described as “somewhat rumpled(всклокоченный) in appearance”, preferring to get down to business quickly in meetings.

“He is a nimble (умелый, живой) conversationalist who understands nuance. In addition to being cautious, considered (рассуд) and thoughtful, he is able to skilfully steer away(отбивать охоту) from topics he prefers to avoid.”

The cable continued: “Despite his lukewarm(прохладный) relationship with Prime Minister (Kevin) Rudd (he sided (объединился)with Kim Beazley in the 2006 ALP(Australian Labour Party) leadership ballot), Shorten struck us as highly ambitious but willing to wait - at least for a while - for his moment in the sun.''

4. Научно-технический текст ELECTRIC CURRENT The electric current is a quantity of electrons flowing in a circuit per second of time. The unit of measure for current is ampere. If one coulomb passes a point in a circuit per second then the current strength is 1 ampere. The symbol for current is I. The current which flows along wires consists of moving electrons. The electrons move along the circuit because the e.m.f. drives them. The current is directly proportional to the e. m. f. In addition to traveling through solids, however, the electric current can flow through liquids as well and even through gases. In both cases it produces some most important effects to meet industrial requirements. Some liquids, such as melted metals for example, conduct current without any change to themselves. Others, called electrolytes, are found to change greatly when the current passes through them. When the electrons flow in one direction only, the current is known to be d. c., that is, direct current. The simplest source of power for the direct current is a battery, for a battery pushes the electrons in the same direction all the time (i.e., from the negatively charged terminal to the positively charged terminal). The letters a. c. stand for alternating current. The current under consideration flows first in one direction and then in the opposite one. The a. c. used for power and lighting purposes is assumed to go through 50 cycles in one second.One of the great advantages of a. c. is the ease with which power at low voltage can be changed into an almost similar amount of power at high voltage and vice versa. Hence, on the one hand alternating voltage is increased when it is necessary for long-distance transmission and, on the other hand, one can decrease it to meet industrial requirements as well as to operate various devices at home. Although there are numerous cases when d. c. is required, at least 90 per cent of electrical energy to be generated at present is a. c. In fact, it finds wide application for lighting, heating, industrial, and some other purposes.
