"For 40 years I have not been the ruler, the authority has been with the people," says Gaddafi calmly. Surrounded by security guards and local TV crews in a library of his military compound, which was bombed by the Americans back in 1986, Gaddafi gives an air of quiet confidence. He continues to deny responsibility in the Lockerbie bombing and advocates a one-state solution to the Israel and Palestine conflict. He also comments on Libya's nuclear programme, and shares his opinions on terrorism and democracy. Quizzed by Negus about his softened image, Gaddafi responds that "It is the world that has changed."

Blue Origin's BE-4 Engine is a game changer
 
04:56
I’m going to give a quick overview of Blue Origin’s BE-4 Engine, the latest news behind their recent hot fire test, and why the completion of the engine will be a huge turning point for the company. On October 19th, Blue Origin announced that it conducted the first successful test of its BE-4 engine. The BE-4 will be one of the most powerful rocket engines in the world. What is the BE-4 significance in Blue Origin’s goal to be a major player in the future economy? LET’S FIND OUT! Welcome to NeoScribe researching the future for you, so you don’t have to. If you’re new to my channel, I cover all major news of SpaceX mars colonization plans, the BFR, and whatever else I find interesting. It seems that in the past year especially, Blue Origin is emerging as a serious player in aerospace manufacturing and I will be definitely covering all of Blue Origin’s progress on my channel, so if you are interested in SpaceX and Blue Origin, then hit the subscribe button and notification bell so you don’t miss out! Okay so the development for the BE-4 started in 2011 and uses liquid oxygen and liquid methane propellants. It is Blue Origin’s 4th generation engine, made to take them into orbital space and beyond. Blue Origin recently completed a hot-fire test of their BE-4 Engine on October 19th, and was fired at 50% power for 3 seconds. This is a huge milestone for Blue Origin because the completion of the BE-4 is a major component of their New Glenn Rocket which they hope to have its first launch in 2020. The BE-4 will also serve as one of their first major revenue source because they will manufacture the Engine for the United Launch Alliance (ULA) new vehicle, Vulcan, which is expected to launch in 2019 so it looks like Blue Origin is well on their way to completing the engine in time for that. The ULA is a commercial Aerospace Power house and is a joint venter between Boeing and Lockheed Martin founded in 2006. The ULA had a monopoly on military launches for more than a decade until the US Air Force awarded a GPS satellite contract to SpaceX in 2016.

The Trials of Samurai Jack
 
04:10
E of DEX: I know that the video skips the "Energy ... We could just keep on diggin' it up" part, but i didn't notice at the time. Anyway, like alot of videos that I've been posting lately this one was made because I didn't have alot of Samurai Jack videos, plus I wanted to use another School House Rock song. One day I'm going to do a video with alot of different types of media. I don't mean like the stuff that I've done before. Stuff like cartoons with anime and old shows and music video footage & more all in one video. The closest I have to that is this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f80y_73rrMY&feature=plcp Well, I'll see y'all later. This is the mark of Super-E93... Media: Vexx, Samurai Jack Songs: Me Against The World-Sum 41, Energy-School House Rock, Goodbye-SR71 Lyrics: (Yawn!) Energy... Sometimes I think I'm runnin' out of energy Seems like we use an awful lot for Heatin' and lightin' and drivin' Readin' and writin' and jivin' Energy ... You'd think we'd be savin' it up. Energy ... You can get it by dammin' up a river Energy ... A windmill can make the breeze deliver But even with millin' and dammin' Our needs are so much more demanding For energy ... We have to use some kind of fuel. Chop, chop, chop, the cavemen used wood to start their fires. Chop, chop, chop, they made all the tools that they required. Chop, chop, chop, inventions got more and more inspired. The fires got higher and higher, And clearings got wider and wider. Energy ... They were burnin' 'bout all their wood up. Then one day men discovered that coal would do it better Miners dug, and it looked like it might just last forever. It seemed like the final solution. It started the Industrial Revolution. Energy ... We could just keep on diggin' it up. Now in 1859 - way out in western Pennsylvania - A man had built a rig that got some laughs from folks who came there But suddenly, a mighty roar came up from under the ground. And soon a gusher, gushin' oil, soaked all who stood around. Now no-one knew, when that gusher blew, The petroleum years were on us, Or that so many cars and trucks would come to cause a crisis. Energy ... We're looking to try and find some new kinds. Energy ... Exploring to try and make a new find. Nuclear and thermal and solar, If we miss we'll get colder and colder. Energy ... We've gotta stop usin' you up. So don't be cross when momma says turn that extra light out. Just turn it off till we find us a fuel that never runs out. If everyone tries a bit harder, Our fuel will go farther and farther. Energy ... We're gonna be stretchin' you out.

PSW 2399 Comets and the Origin of Life | Steven Squyres
 
01:32:39
PSW #2399 November 2, 2018 Lecture Starts at 11:00 www.pswscience.org Comets and the Origin of Life The Proposed CAESAR Mission to Return a Comet Sample to Earth Steven W. Squyres James A. Weeks Professor of Physical Sciences Cornell University Comets are among the oldest and most interesting objects in the solar system. Learning about them can tell us a great deal about the origins and formation of the solar system, and perhaps about the origin of life. For example, researchers have speculated that tholin-rich comets may have seeded earth with organic compounds early in its development, stimulating life to begin. The Rosetta mission studied the comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko at close range for two years. The trove of information from Rosetta provides a highly detailed basis for designing a sample return mission to this comet. And the detection of tholins on 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko make it an extremely attractive object for further study, with the promise of illuminating how life began. The Comet Astrobiology Exploration Sample Return Mission (CAESAR) is a proposed mission back to 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko to sample the comet and bring the samples back to earth. Currently, it is one of a pair of finalists selected for further concept development in NASA’s New Frontiers Program. The other is the Dragonfly mission to Titan. If CAESAR is selected, and things go smoothly, it will launch in 2024 and return samples to Earth in 2038. This lecture will discuss the reasons for visiting 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko again and bringing samples of the comet back to earth for detailed study, and the engineering and science mission proposal being developed. Steven Squyres is James A. Weeks Professor of Physical Sciences at Cornell University. Before joining the Cornell faculty, he was a postdoctoral associate and research scientist at NASA Ames Research Center. Concurrently, Steve is the Principal Investigator for the Mars Exploration Rover Project, a co-investigator on Mars Express and for the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter’s High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment, a member of the Gamma-Ray Spectrometer Team for Mars Odyssey, and a member of the Cassini imaging team. Previously, he was an associate of the Voyager imaging science team, radar investigator on the Venus Magellan mission, member of the Mars Observer gamma-ray spectrometer team, and co-investigator on the Russian Mars ’96 mission. Steve’s research focuses on the robotic exploration of planetary surfaces, the history of water on Mars, geophysics and tectonics of icy satellites, tectonics of Venus, planetary gamma-ray and x-ray spectroscopy. Research for which he is best known includes study of the history and distribution of water on Mars and of the possible existence and habitability of a liquid water ocean on Europa. Among other awards, Steve is the recipient of the Carl Sagan Memorial Award, the Carl Sagan Medal for Excellence in Communication in Planetary Science, the Mines Medal, the AAU’s Urey Prize and the Franklin Institute’s Franklin Medal in Earth and Environmental Science. He is an author on numerous technical papers, and the book, Roving Mars. He has appeared often in the media speaking on space and space exploration. Steve earned a BA in Geological Sciences and a PhD in Astronomy from Cornell University, where he worked closely with Carl Sagan.

Spencer Weart's Interview
 
01:23:54
Spencer Weart is a historian of science. Originally trained as a physicist, Weart served for many years as director of the Center for History of Physics of the American Institute of Physics (AIP) in College Park, Maryland. In this interview, Weart discusses the French nuclear program, starting with its origins with Marie and Pierre Curie. He examines the prominent role of their daughter, Irene, and her husband, Frédéric Joliot, who together won a Nobel Prize in 1935 for their discovery of artificial radioactivity. Irene and Frédéric’s work made enormous contributions to the development of nuclear physics during the late 1930s. Weart goes on to explain how, during World War II, key members of the French program became part of the Manhattan Project, as well as Joliot’s role in the French Resistance. He concludes with a discussion of the postwar nuclear program in France. For the full transcript: https://www.manhattanprojectvoices.org/oral-histories/spencer-wearts-interview

Beth Karlin Ph.D. Thesis Defense
 
01:27:54
Beth Karlin Candidate for Ph.D. in Social Ecology Ph.D. Dissertation Defense Wednesday, April 23rd , 2014 Social Ecology I, Room 112 1:00 - 3:00 PM Residential Energy Feedback: Research, Technology, and Potential for the Informed Home Research Summary: Scientists and elected officials agree that climate change is an issue that can no longer be ignored and residential energy use is a prime target for reducing emissions, accounting for over 20% of annual emissions. One promising strategy for promoting conservation is the provision of feedback about energy use. Feedback -- the process of giving people information about their behavior to reinforce and/or change behavior--is receiving increasing attention due to changes in technology and infrastructure that allow information to be collected, processed, and sent back to consumers quickly and cheaply. Many programs and products have emerged in recent years, demonstrating political and technical potential for wide-scale provision of energy feedback. However, past work has been critiqued for its lack of theoretical rigor; many have called for more attention to the conditions under which theories are successful in explaining conservation. This research presents an interdisciplinary, mixed methods approach to understanding the role of feedback in residential energy conservation through five distinct, yet interrelated approaches: (1) literature review and integration into a new Eco-Feedback Intervention Theory (eFIT) (2) meta-analysis of past research on residential energy feedback, (3) taxonomy of energy feedback technology, (3) mixed-methods analysis of naturalistic energy feedback users, and (4) introduction and psychometric testing of a Usability Perception Scale (UPscale). As a whole, it seeks to extend what is known about energy feedback and to make suggestions for future research and practice. While there much research addressing whether feedback works, there has been little research into the more nuanced questions of how and for whom it works best. The present research aims to address this need. Biography: Beth founded and directs the Transformational Media Lab in the Center for Unconventional Security Affairs (CUSA), where she studies the psychology of leveraging new media and technology for social impact. Current projects investigate public acceptance of technology, documentary film, and digital activism. Beth has over a dozen publications in venues ranging from Peace Studies to Persuasive Technology and lectures regularly on Transformational Media and the Psychology of Sustainability. She is active in the American Psychological Association's Division 34 (Environmental Psychology), currently serving as Treasurer and Program Chair for the 2014 Convention. Beth holds a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Psychology and Spanish from the University of Redlands and a Masters in Public Administration (MPA) from California State University, Long Beach. Prior to beginning her doctoral studies, she spent a decade working in K-12 education, holding positions as a teacher, counselor, curriculum consultant, and school administrator. After graduation, Beth will be staying at CUSA and working on the NSF-funded Flood RISE project, investigating the role of parcel-level flood modeling coupled with transformative communication strategies to improve flood resilience. The project aims to articulate a strategy for effectively translating climate science into actionable information to catalyze behavioral change.

How German Exiles Shaped the Cold War in the United States - Daniel Bessner
 
13:14
Why – and how – did German exiles succeed in shaping the Cold War in the United States? Professor Daniel Bessner of the University of Washington looks at the career of Hans Speier, a leading defense intellectual who fled the Nazis and helped found the RAND Corporation. While himself not Jewish, Speier represents the worldview of a whole cohort of German-Jewish intellectuals, raising important questions about the boundaries of Jewish history. This talk was part of the Stroum Center for Jewish Studies' 2015 JewDubTalks series, which offers an academic Jewish twist on the popular TED Talks format. Speaker Bio: Daniel Bessner is Assistant Professor in the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies. His research addresses U.S. foreign relations, cultural and intellectual history, U.S.-Europe relations, Jewish Studies, and the history of the human sciences. He received his Ph.D. from Duke University in 2013. In 2014, the International Society for Intellectual History awarded him the Charles Schmitt Prize for Best Article by a young historian. His forthcoming book, titled “Democracy in Exile: Hans Speier and the Rise of the Defense Intellectual,” is under contract with the US in the World series at Cornell University Press. Comment Policy: The Stroum Center for Jewish Studies believes that comments are a valuable source of dialogue and wants to include your thoughts as part of the conversation. To create a welcoming space for all, we publish comments that are respectful and relevant to the conversation.

24. Higher-Order Effects, Dynamics, and the NMR Time Scale
 
51:13
Freshman Organic Chemistry II (CHEM 125B) Because spin-spin splitting depends on electron spin precisely at a nucleus, splitting by a C-13 depends on its orbital's hybridization. "Higher-order effects" that give complex multiplets for nuclei with similar chemical shifts can be understood in terms of the mixing of wave functions of similar energy. Averaging of chemical shifts or spin-spin splitting may be used to measure the rate of rapid changes in molecular structure, such as changes in conformation or hydrogen bonding. Since the spectroscopic time scale depends on frequency differences, averaging is easier in NMR than in IR. A typical problem involves predicting the NMR spectrum of a compound with diastereotopic groups. In proton decoupling radio frequency irradiation of a particular proton can make it cease to split the NMR signals from nearby protons. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

Frederick Law Olmsted Lecture: Aaron Sachs
 
01:19:06
In recent years, environmental justice scholarship has exploded. But virtually every relevant piece of work has understood the history of environmental justice as dating only to the late 20th century. This talk goes back to the 17th century, seeking to trace and analyze the evolution of a positive environmental rights discourse in European and American history. Having established our opposition to environmental injustice, we might want to ask: what exactly are we aiming for, in positive terms? What are the components of environmental justice? Is there any common ground left to stand on? And how might a deeper historical perspective help us answer these questions? Aaron Sachs (AB ’92) is Professor of History and American Studies at Cornell University, where he has taught since 2004. In 2006, he published The Humboldt Current: Nineteenth-Century Exploration and the Roots of American Environmentalism (Viking), which won Honorable Mention for the Frederick Jackson Turner Award, given to the best first book in the field of U.S. history by the Organization of American Historians (OAH). In 2013, he published Arcadian America: The Death and Life of an Environmental Tradition (Yale U. Press), which was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in general nonfiction. Sachs has also published articles in such journals as Environmental History, Rethinking History, American Quarterly, and History and Theory. In his graduate teaching, he works with students not only in History but also in English, Science and Technology Studies, History of Architecture, City and Regional Planning, Anthropology, and Natural Resources. At Cornell, Sachs is the faculty sponsor of a radical underground organization called Historians Are Writers, which brings together graduate students who believe that academic writing can be moving on a deeply human level. He is also the founder and coordinator of the Cornell Roundtable on Environmental Studies Topics (CREST). Sachs is currently at work on book projects focusing on environmental modernity; environmental justice; and environmental humor.

CppCon 2018: Panel “Software Security”
 
01:01:13
http://CppCon.org — Presentation Slides, PDFs, Source Code and other presenter materials are available at: https://github.com/CppCon/CppCon2018 — This session will feature four panelists who have extensive experience in designing systems that have to work securely in an insecure world. Two of the panelists have multiple decades defending everything from operating systems to networks to sensitive military systems from attackers. — Patricia Aas, TurtleSec Programmer Patricia has been programming C++ professionally for 13 years, she started out working on the Opera desktop browser and has looped back to browser making in the recent years, now working on the Vivaldi browser with many ex-opera colleagues. While away from the browser world she did a stint as a Java consultant coming back to C++ when working on embedded teleconference systems at Cisco. For the last couple of years she has begun doing public speaking, after only doing in-house speaking before. She is passionate about the tech industry and its impact on peoples lives. Since January she has been active in the #include<C++> community where she is one of the admins. Matthew Butler Matthew Butler has spent the last three decades as a systems architect and software engineer developing systems for network security, law enforcement and the military. He primarily works in signals intelligence using C, C++ and Modern C++ to build systems running on hardware platforms ranging from embedded micro-controllers to FPGAs to large-scale airborne platforms. Much of his experience has come in either building systems that defend against attackers or building highly sensitive systems that are targets. He is actively involved in the C++ community and is on various planning committees for C++Now and CppCon as well as being a speaker at both. Over the past thirty years, he has learned the harsh lessons on how we often write systems that fail, not because they don't scale, but because they aren't designed to be secure. Eva Conti, Andromeda LLC Also known as Bunny in some circles, Eva started doing very bad things with computers when she was a teenager, but eventually learned to use her powers for good instead of evil. These days, she is an organizer for #include, advocate for diversity and acceptance in both the tech and gaming community, and focuses on automation and penetration testing in her day to day life. She is a games industry veteran, rescuer of guinea pigs, and an avid writer who somehow still gets asked to do things like be on Cpp.Chat and moderate security panels. Matt Miller, Microsoft Matt Miller is a Partner Security Software Engineer working as part of the Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC). In this role, Matt drives strategy and engineering related to proactive vulnerability defense across Microsoft's products and services. Prior to joining Microsoft ten years ago, Matt was a core contributor to the Metasploit framework and an editor for the Uninformed journal. — Videos Filmed & Edited by Bash Films: http://www.BashFilms.com

Labor Studies Working Group Symposium: “Labor in a Changing Climate: Climate Change and Labor”
 
01:53:02
March 2, 2017. PARCC Conversations in Conflict Studies: The Tenth Decade Work, Labor, and Citizenship Project presents Labor in a Changing Climate: Climate Change, Labor and Global Citizenship. Green Jobs? Pipeline struggles? Infrastructure? Recent events have revealed potential overlaps and tensions between climate and labor struggles. The ongoing battle over the Dakota Access Pipeline demonstrates the split within the labor movement on environmental questions; especially related to climate change. This event brings together experts and activists who seek to bridge these tensions between climate and labor activism. What would it mean to create a unified climate-labor movement? How can such a movement respond to the new leadership in the White House? What is the role of policy in creating solutions to climate change that also appeal to working class and other marginalized constituents? How can such a movement create forms of “global citizenship” to address the uneven historical responsibilities for and contemporary environmental impacts of climate change. This event will address these questions and many more. Guest Panelists: Christian Parenti, Global Liberal Studies, New York University; Kate Aronoff, Writing Fellow, In These Times; Howie Hawkins, 2014 Green Party candidate for New York Governor, Member, Teamsters Local 317.
Linus Carl Pauling | Wikipedia audio article
 
55:02
This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: Linus Carl Pauling Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone. You can find other Wikipedia audio articles too at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuKfABj2eGyjH3ntPxp4YeQ You can upload your own Wikipedia articles through: https://github.com/nodef/wikipedia-tts "The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing." - Socrates SUMMARY ======= Linus Carl Pauling (; February 28, 1901 – August 19, 1994) was an American chemist, biochemist, peace activist, author, educator, and husband of American human rights activist Ava Helen Pauling. He published more than 1,200 papers and books, of which about 850 dealt with scientific topics. New Scientist called him one of the 20 greatest scientists of all time, and as of 2000, he was rated the 16th most important scientist in history.Pauling was one of the founders of the fields of quantum chemistry and molecular biology. His contributions to the theory of the chemical bond include the concept of orbital hybridisation and the first accurate scale of electronegativities of the elements. Pauling also worked on the structures of biological molecules, and showed the importance of the alpha helix and beta sheet in protein secondary structure. Pauling's approach combined methods and results from X-ray crystallography, molecular model building and quantum chemistry. His discoveries inspired the work of James Watson, Francis Crick, and Rosalind Franklin on the structure of DNA, which in turn made it possible for geneticists to crack the DNA code of all organisms.In his later years he promoted nuclear disarmament, as well as orthomolecular medicine, megavitamin therapy, and dietary supplements. None of the latter have gained much acceptance in the mainstream scientific community.For his scientific work, Pauling was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1954. For his peace activism, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1962. He is one of four individuals to have won more than one Nobel Prize (the others being Marie Curie, John Bardeen and Frederick Sanger). Of these, he is the only person to have been awarded two unshared Nobel Prizes, and one of two people to be awarded Nobel Prizes in different fields, the other being Marie Curie.

He was a renowned expert on rare earth elements, and on extraction of metals from minerals. The uranium extraction process helped make it possible for the Manhattan Project to build the first atomic bombs. A graduate of the University of Michigan and University of California, Berkeley, Spedding became an assistant professor and head of the department of physical chemistry at Iowa State College in 1937. His efforts at building up the school were so successful that he would spend the rest of his career there, becoming a professor of chemistry in 1941, a professor of physics in 1950, a professor of metallurgy in 1962, and ultimately professor emeritus in 1973. He co-founded, along with Dr. Harley Wilhelm, the Institute for Atomic Research and the Ames Laboratory of the Atomic Energy Commission, and directed the Ames Laboratory from its founding in 1947 until 1968. Spedding developed an ion exchange method of separating and purifying rare earth elements using ion exchange resins, and later used ion exchange to separate isotopes of individual elements, including hundreds of grams of almost pure nitrogen-15. He published over 250 peer-reviewed papers, and held 22 patents in his own name and jointly with others. Some 88 students received their Ph.D. degree under his supervision.

(I Cor. 12:10) PROPHETIC MESSAGES, words of wisdom, knowledge and understanding given by the Spirit of God. THE WORDS OF THE SPIRIT are given just as we have received them. We offer no explanations, apologies or interpretations, nor do we compel you, the reader, to agree or disagree. We have not changed them, adulterated them or doctored them up. THE WORDS OF THE SPIRIT come to you just as they have come to us. These words are guaranteed to kill the flesh, heal the wounds and fill the spirit man with joy. Taken from our international radio programs as well as given to our community on a daily basis, they are printed and given out freely. more harbingers of prophecy: http://www.aggressivechristianity.net/bfn/prophetic%20word.htm The gloves are off for fools. Repent, and they come back on. Play the unrepentant proud fool, and they stay off for ever. ...knowing human pride and hatred for God and righteousness, it is only going to get worse from hereon out until total destruction befalls AMERIKA, INCLUDING the WHORE called "christianity"!! PROPHECY HAS NOT CEASED, you Baptists BONEHEADS! Hard-hitting AGGRESSIVE TRUTH from Generals James & Deborah Green. Tired of a DEAD CHURCH EXISTENCE? Get AGGRESSIVE! Get RADICAL! Seek, Locate, and Annihilate SIN in and around you. Get off your lazy behind and get to the FRONTLINES! Souls are perishing all around you and GOING TO HELL! What are you doing about it? Join the ARMY THAT SHEDS NO BLOOD!! Why the WHORE is under God's wrath -The Facts The"Super-storm" - the worst ever recorded on the East Coast and the financial center of the USA - was just one in a long line of "historic" catastrophes to hit the United States in the last 11 years. It follows right on the heels of one of the worst droughts ever recorded in America which occurred this summer - the most severe in more than half a century. The Lord has lifted His hand of protection off the USA more and more, beginning with 9-11. Below is an astonishing list of major disasters that have occurred one after the other in America since 2001:- 2001 - TWIN TOWERS - The worst ever attack on American soil. The most devastating event in living memory. 2005 - HURRICANE KATRINA - The most destructive and expensive hurricane in US history. 2007 - MASSACRE AT VIRGINIA TECH - The worst school shooting in the history of the United States. 2007 - HOUSING CRISIS - Start of the worst (by far) housing crash in US history. Millions lose their homes across the nation. 2008 - FINANCIAL PANIC - The beginning of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. (-Still ongoing). 2011 - TORNADO OUTBREAK - The largest outbreak of tornadoes ever recorded. (Also the costliest and most devastating). 2012 - DROUGHT - The worst and most extensive US drought in more than half a century. 2012 - SUPER-STORM - A 1000-mile-wide hurricane that slams into New York and the East Coast harder than any ever recorded. There was a time when America spread righteousness in the earth. But today the USA is the # 1 exporter of pornography and youth rebellion and homosexuality to the whole world. Does this have anything to do with what is happening? America is the "leader" in so many things. Are there other reasons why she is under judgment? (It is not that the USA is "worse" than many other nations - but rather that she is a 'leader' - influencing the whole earth with these things. It is this place of "leadership" that makes America a unique case).

The British SIS and the American CIA launched a joint subversive operation, using as agents Albanian expatriates. Other anti-communist Albanians and many nationalists worked as agents for Greek, Italian and Yugoslav intelligence services, some supported by the UK and U.S. secret services. A Soviet mole, and, later, other spies tipped off the missions to Moscow, which in turn relayed the information to Albania. Consequently, many of the agents were caught, put on trial, and either shot or condemned to long prison terms at hard labor.The Albanian subversion cost the lives of at least 300 men and for a long time was one of the most carefully concealed secrets of the Cold War. In 2006, some 2,300 pages of documents laying out major parts of the Albania Project under its two major cryptonyms, BGFIEND and OBOPUS, were declassified by a U.S. government interagency working group acting under the terms of the Nazi War Crimes Disclosure Act. These documents are available at the National Archives in College Park, Maryland.

Its chief focus was on the German nuclear energy project, but it also investigated both chemical and biological weapons and the means to deliver them. The Alsos Mission was created following the September 1943 Allied invasion of Italy with a twofold assignment: search for personnel, records, material, and sites to evaluate the above programs and prevent their capture by the Soviet Union. It was established as part of the Manhattan Project's mission to coordinate foreign intelligence related to enemy nuclear activity. Alsos personnel followed close behind the front lines in Italy, France, and Germany, occasionally crossing into enemy-held territory to secure valuable resources before they could be destroyed or scientists escape or fall into rival hands. The Alsos Mission was commanded by Colonel Boris Pash, a former Manhattan Project security officer, with Samuel Goudsmit as chief scientific advisor. It was jointly staffed by the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), the Office of Scientific Research and Development (OSRD), the Manhattan Project, and Army Intelligence (G-2), with field assistance from combat engineers assigned to specific task forces. Alsos teams were successful in locating and removing a substantial portion of the German research effort's surviving records and equipment. They also took most of the senior German research personnel into custody, including Otto Hahn, Max von Laue, Werner Heisenberg and Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker.

A member of the Republican Party, he served in both houses of the U.S. Congress. He also served as Secretary of the Treasury and Secretary of State. Sherman sought the Republican presidential nomination three times, coming closest in 1888, but was never chosen by the party. His brothers included General William Tecumseh Sherman; Charles Taylor Sherman, a federal judge in Ohio; and Hoyt Sherman, an Iowa banker. Born in Lancaster, Ohio, Sherman later moved to Mansfield, where he began a law career before entering politics. Initially a Whig, Sherman was among those anti-slavery activists who formed what became the Republican Party. He served three terms in the House of Representatives. As a member of the House, Sherman traveled to Kansas to investigate the unrest between pro- and anti-slavery partisans there. He rose in party leadership and was nearly elected Speaker in 1859. Sherman was elevated to the Senate in 1861. As a senator, he was a leader in financial matters, helping to redesign the United States' monetary system to meet the needs of a nation torn apart by civil war. After the war, he worked to produce legislation that would restore the nation's credit abroad and produce a stable, gold-backed currency at home. Serving as Secretary of the Treasury in the administration of Rutherford B. Hayes, Sherman continued his efforts for financial stability and solvency, overseeing an end to wartime inflationary measures and a return to gold-backed money. He returned to the Senate after his term expired, serving there for a further sixteen years. During that time he continued his work on financial legislation, as well as writing and debating laws on immigration, business competition law, and the regulation of interstate commerce. Sherman was the principal author of the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890, which was signed into law by President Benjamin Harrison. In 1897, President William McKinley appointed him Secretary of State. Failing health and declining faculties made him unable to handle the burdens of the job, and he retired in 1898 at the start of the Spanish–American War. Sherman died at his home in Washington, D.C. in 1900.

The Vietnam War: Reasons for Failure - Why the U.S. Lost
 
01:45:58
In the post-war era, Americans struggled to absorb the lessons of the military intervention. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0871137992/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0871137992&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=d1bb53399f448906b40e7c954de052ac As General Maxwell Taylor, one of the principal architects of the war, noted, "First, we didn't know ourselves. We thought that we were going into another Korean War, but this was a different country. Secondly, we didn't know our South Vietnamese allies... And we knew less about North Vietnam. Who was Ho Chi Minh? Nobody really knew. So, until we know the enemy and know our allies and know ourselves, we'd better keep out of this kind of dirty business. It's very dangerous." Some have suggested that "the responsibility for the ultimate failure of this policy [America's withdrawal from Vietnam] lies not with the men who fought, but with those in Congress..." Alternatively, the official history of the United States Army noted that "tactics have often seemed to exist apart from larger issues, strategies, and objectives. Yet in Vietnam the Army experienced tactical success and strategic failure... The...Vietnam War...legacy may be the lesson that unique historical, political, cultural, and social factors always impinge on the military...Success rests not only on military progress but on correctly analyzing the nature of the particular conflict, understanding the enemy's strategy, and assessing the strengths and weaknesses of allies. A new humility and a new sophistication may form the best parts of a complex heritage left to the Army by the long, bitter war in Vietnam." U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger wrote in a secret memo to President Gerald Ford that "in terms of military tactics, we cannot help draw the conclusion that our armed forces are not suited to this kind of war. Even the Special Forces who had been designed for it could not prevail." Even Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara concluded that "the achievement of a military victory by U.S. forces in Vietnam was indeed a dangerous illusion." Doubts surfaced as to the effectiveness of large-scale, sustained bombing. As Army Chief of Staff Harold Keith Johnson noted, "if anything came out of Vietnam, it was that air power couldn't do the job." Even General William Westmoreland admitted that the bombing had been ineffective. As he remarked, "I still doubt that the North Vietnamese would have relented." The inability to bomb Hanoi to the bargaining table also illustrated another U.S. miscalculation. The North's leadership was composed of hardened communists who had been fighting for independence for thirty years. They had defeated the French, and their tenacity as both nationalists and communists was formidable. Ho Chi Minh is quoted as saying, "You can kill ten of my men for every one I kill of yours...But even at these odds you will lose and I will win." The Vietnam War called into question the U.S. Army doctrine. Marine Corps General Victor H. Krulak heavily criticised Westmoreland's attrition strategy, calling it "wasteful of American lives... with small likelihood of a successful outcome." In addition, doubts surfaced about the ability of the military to train foreign forces. Between 1965 and 1975, the United States spent $111 billion on the war ($686 billion in FY2008 dollars). This resulted in a large federal budget deficit. More than 3 million Americans served in the Vietnam War, some 1.5 million of whom actually saw combat in Vietnam. James E. Westheider wrote that "At the height of American involvement in 1968, for example, there were 543,000 American military personnel in Vietnam, but only 80,000 were considered combat troops." Conscription in the United States had been controlled by the President since World War II, but ended in 1973." By war's end, 58,220 American soldiers had been killed, more than 150,000 had been wounded, and at least 21,000 had been permanently disabled. According to Dale Kueter, "Sixty-one percent of those killed were age 21 or younger. Of those killed in combat, 86.3 percent were white, 12.5 percent were black and the remainder from other races." The youngest American KIA in the war was PFC Dan Bullock, who had falsified his birth certificate and enlisted in the US Marines at age 14 and who was killed in combat at age 15. Approximately 830,000 Vietnam veterans suffered symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder. An estimated 125,000 Americans fled to Canada to avoid the Vietnam draft, and approximately 50,000 American servicemen deserted. In 1977, United States President Jimmy Carter granted a full, complete and unconditional pardon to all Vietnam-era draft dodgers. The Vietnam War POW/MIA issue, concerning the fate of U.S. service personnel listed as missing in action, persisted for many years after the war's conclusion. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vietnam_War

Under the Spanish rule, the monarchy made very little effort to promote education in the American colonies and in particular in those in which they had less commercial interest, as in Venezuela. The country only had its first university some two hundred years later than Mexico, Colombia or Peru. The first studies on the native languages of Venezuela and the indigenous customs were made in the middle of the XVIII century by the Catholic missionaries. The Italian Jesuit Filippo Salvatore Gilii was one of the first to theorize about linguistic relations and propose possible language families for the Orinoco river basin. The Swedish botanist Pehr Löfling, one of the 12 Apostles of Carl Linnaeus, classificated for the first time the exhuberant tropical flora of the Orinoco river basin. In the XIX century several scientists visited Venezuela such as Alexander Humboldt, Aimé Bonpland, Agostino Codazzi, Jean-Baptiste Boussingault, Mariano Rivero, François de Pons, Robert Hermann Schomburgk, Wilhelm Sievers, Carl Ferdinand Appun, Gustav Karsten, Adolf Ernst, Benedikt Roezl, Karl Moritz, Friedrich Gerstäcker, Anton Goering, Johann Gottlieb Benjamin Siegert, Alfred Russel Wallace, Jean Chaffanjon, Émile-Arthur Thouar, Jules Crevaux and many others, some of whom are buried in Venezuela. The Venezuelan Institute for Scientific Research (IVIC) founded on February 9, 1959 by government decree, has its origins in the Venezuelan Institute of Neurology and Brain Research (IVNIC) which Dr. Humberto Fernandez Moran founded in 1955. Other major research institutions include the Central University of Venezuela and the University of the Andes, Venezuela. Notable Venezuelan scientists include nineteenth century physician José María Vargas , the chemist Vicente Marcano and the botanist and geographer Alfredo Jahn (1867–1940). More recently, Baruj Benacerraf shared the 1980 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, Augusto Pi Sunyer (1955), Aristides Bastidas (1980), Marcel Roche (1987) and Marisela Salvatierra (2002) have been recipients of UNESCO's Kalinga Prize for promotion of the public understanding of science. On July 2, 2012, L. Rafael Reif – a Venezuelan American electrical engineer, inventor and academic administrator – was elected president of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Auburn Coach Wife Kristi Malzahn Agrees with Match & eHarmony: Men are Jerks

My advice is this: Settle! That's right. Don't worry about passion or intense connection. Don't nix a guy based on his annoying habit of yelling "Bravo!" in movie theaters. Overlook his halitosis or abysmal sense of aesthetics. Because if you want to have the infrastructure in place to have a family, settling is the way to go. Based on my observations, in fact, settling will probably make you happier in the long run, since many of those who marry with great expectations become more disillusioned with each passing year. (It's hard to maintain that level of zing when the conversation morphs into discussions about who's changing the diapers or balancing the checkbook.) Obviously, I wasn't always an advocate of settling. In fact, it took not settling to make me realize that settling is the better option, and even though settling is a rampant phenomenon, talking about it in a positive light makes people profoundly uncomfortable. Whenever I make the case for settling, people look at me with creased brows of disapproval or frowns of disappointment, the way a child might look at an older sibling who just informed her that Jerry's Kids aren't going to walk, even if you send them money. It's not only politically incorrect to get behind settling, it's downright un-American. Our culture tells us to keep our eyes on the prize (while our mothers, who know better, tell us not to be so picky), and the theme of holding out for true love (whatever that is—look at the divorce rate) permeates our collective mentality. Even situation comedies, starting in the 1970s with The Mary Tyler Moore Show and going all the way to Friends, feature endearing single women in the dating trenches, and there's supposed to be something romantic and even heroic about their search for true love. Of course, the crucial difference is that, whereas the earlier series begins after Mary has been jilted by her fiancé, the more modern-day Friends opens as Rachel Green leaves her nice-guy orthodontist fiancé at the altar simply because she isn't feeling it. But either way, in episode after episode, as both women continue to be unlucky in love, settling starts to look pretty darn appealing. Mary is supposed to be contentedly independent and fulfilled by her newsroom family, but in fact her life seems lonely. Are we to assume that at the end of the series, Mary, by then in her late 30s, found her soul mate after the lights in the newsroom went out and her work family was disbanded? If her experience was anything like mine or that of my single friends, it's unlikely. And while Rachel and her supposed soul mate, Ross, finally get together (for the umpteenth time) in the finale of Friends, do we feel confident that she'll be happier with Ross than she would have been had she settled down with Barry, the orthodontist, 10 years earlier? She and Ross have passion but have never had long-term stability, and the fireworks she experiences with him but not with Barry might actually turn out to be a liability, given how many times their relationship has already gone up in flames. It's equally questionable whether Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw, who cheated on her kindhearted and generous boyfriend, Aidan, only to end up with the more exciting but self-absorbed Mr. Big, will be better off in the framework of marriage and family. (Some time after the breakup, when Carrie ran into Aidan on the street, he was carrying his infant in a Baby Björn. Can anyone imagine Mr. Big walking around with a Björn?)

A member of the Democratic Party, Wilson served as the President of Princeton University from 1902 to 1910, and as Governor of New Jersey from 1911 to 1913, before winning the 1912 presidential election. As president, he oversaw the passage of progressive legislative policies unparalleled until the New Deal in 1933. He also led the United States during World War I, establishing an activist foreign policy known as "Wilsonianism." He was one of the three key leaders at the 1919 Paris Peace Conference, where he championed a new League of Nations, but he was unable to win Senate approval for U.S. participation in the League. Born in Staunton, Virginia, to a slaveholding family, Wilson spent his early years in Augusta, Georgia, and Columbia, South Carolina. His father was a leading Southern Presbyterian and helped to found the Presbyterian Church in the Confederate States of America. After earning a Ph.D. in political science from Johns Hopkins University, Wilson taught at various schools before taking a position at Princeton. In 1910, Democratic leaders recruited him to run for Governor of New Jersey. Serving from 1911 to 1913, Wilson broke with party bosses and won the passage of several progressive reforms. Wilson's success in New Jersey gave him a national reputation as a progressive reformer, and his Southern roots helped him win favor in that region. After several ballots, the 1912 Democratic National Convention selected Wilson as the party's presidential nominee. Theodore Roosevelt's third-party candidacy split the Republican Party, which re-nominated incumbent President William Howard Taft. Wilson won the 1912 election with a plurality of the popular vote and a large majority in the Electoral College. Upon taking office, Wilson called a special session of Congress, whose work culminated in the Revenue Act of 1913, introducing a federal income tax which provided revenue lost when tariffs were sharply lowered. He also presided over the passage of the Federal Reserve Act, which created a central banking system in the form of the Federal Reserve System. Other ma ...

Air conditioning can be used in both domestic and commercial environments. This process is most commonly used to achieve a more comfortable interior environment, typically for humans and other animals; however, air conditioning is also used to cool/dehumidify rooms filled with heat-producing electronic devices, such as computer servers, power amplifiers, and even to display and store some delicate products, such as artwork. Air conditioners often use a fan to distribute the conditioned air to an occupied space such as a building or a car to improve thermal comfort and indoor air quality. Electric refrigerant-based AC units range from small units that can cool a small bedroom, which can be carried by a single adult, to massive units installed on the roof of office towers that can cool an entire building. The cooling is typically achieved through a refrigeration cycle, but sometimes evaporation or free cooling is used. Air conditioning systems can also be made based on desiccants (chemicals which remove moisture from the air). Some AC systems reject or store heat in subterranean pipes.In the most general sense, air conditioning can refer to any form of technology that modifies the condition of air (heating, (de-) humidification, cooling, cleaning, ventilation, or air movement). In common usage, though, "air conditioning" refers to systems which cool air. In construction, a complete system of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning is referred to as HVAC.

During World War II, he was the leader of the Partisans, often regarded as the most effective resistance movement in occupied Europe. While his presidency has been criticized as authoritarian and concerns about the repression of political opponents have been raised, some historians consider him a benevolent dictator. He was a popular public figure both in Yugoslavia and abroad. Viewed as a unifying symbol, his internal policies maintained the peaceful coexistence of the nations of the Yugoslav federation. He gained further international attention as the chief leader of the Non-Aligned Movement, alongside Jawaharlal Nehru of India, Gamal Abdel Nasser of Egypt, Sukarno of Indonesia, and Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana.Broz was born to a Croat father and Slovene mother in the village of Kumrovec, Austria-Hungary (now in Croatia). Drafted into military service, he distinguished himself, becoming the youngest sergeant major in the Austro-Hungarian Army of that time. After being seriously wounded and captured by the Imperial Russians during World War I, he was sent to a work camp in the Ural Mountains. He participated in some events of the Russian Revolution in 1917 and subsequent Civil War. Upon his return home, Broz found himself in the newly established Kingdom of Yugoslavia, where he joined the Communist Party of Yugoslavia (KPJ). He was General Secretary (later Chairman of the Presidium) of the League of Communists of Yugoslavia (1939–1980) and went on to lead the World War II Yugoslav guerrilla movement, the Partisans (1941–1945). After the war, he was the Prime Minister (1944–1963), President (later President for Life) (1953–1980) of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (SFRY). From 1943 to his death in 1980, he held the rank of Marshal of Yugoslavia, serving as the supreme commander of the Yugoslav military, the Yugoslav People's Army (JNA). With a highly favourable reputation abroad in both Cold War blocs, he received some 98 foreign decorations, including the Legion of Honour and the Order of the Bath. Tito was the chief architect of the second Yugoslavia, a socialist federation that lasted from November 1942 until April 1992. Despite being one of the founders of Cominform, he became the first Cominform member to defy Soviet hegemony in 1948 and the only one in Joseph Stalin's time to manage to leave Cominform and begin with its own socialist program with elements of market socialism. Economists active in the former Yugoslavia, including Czech-born Jaroslav Vanek and Croat-born Branko Horvat, promoted a model of market socialism dubbed the Illyrian model, where firms were socially owned by their employees and structured on workers' self-management and competed with each other in open and free markets.
