168: California rises and falls in 92 years since Laurel & Hardy. Lee Ohnian @HooverInst @lee_ohanian

California once was the promised land, with weather, beaches, and a welcoming government.  It grew from a tiny populat0n to having 12% of the national population. It's gone off the rails.  Car owners pay $3,000 more per year than do drivers in other states: no money left in the budget to fix roads. Potholes to take out your rear axle.  Over 90% of budget is K-12 and health and human services.  A billion paid to ineligible Medicaid recipients.  Madly expensive prison system. Can’t even change light bulbs in DMV.  It’s the low-income households that pay the price of broken axles, bad schools, astounding traffic jams with highest gas prices.  Population shifting to Texas, Nevada, and other business-friendly states.  Will Godot ever show up?   https://www.hoover.org/research/california-legislators-spend-200-billion-and-taxpayers-get-less-and-less?utm_source=Hoover+Daily+Report&utm_campaign=4df6205600-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2020_07_07_06_30&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_21b1edff3c-4df6205600-72527561

167: The POTUS Trump vs the American-history bashers. @ConradMBlack @NRO

Image: A model at the site depicting Mount Rushmore's intended final design ("before funding ran out"). Conrad Black, author, Flight of the Eagle, & publisher; in re:  President Trump’s Mt Rushmore  speech was the greatest of his career; both content and delivery were excellent.  The American system produces leaders that it absolutely needs when it needs them: Lincoln; FDR.  Trump has reversed a slight decline in the country and returned it to its ethos: if you work hard, you can succeed.  . . .  The president reminded us that we all came from different sources and have a right to live without [reference to] our ancestors. Black Lives Matter boasts about its Marxist founders.  Canadians find Trump heavy going, but are appalled at how the protests turned into orgies of violence and looting.  The Squad and Sanders say that the whole system is rotten— rather what Trump said four years ago. https://amgreatness.com/2020/07/06/point-of-no-return/

165: Australia is on offense with arms and intelligence to fend off PRC threats and provocations. Gregory Copley, Defense & Foreign Affairs

Gregory Copley, Defense & Foreign Affairs  "Essentially, the new approach would move the Australian Defence Force (ADF) struc-ture away from coalition, expeditionary operational focus to a capacity — largely driven by the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) and Royal Australian Navy (RAN) — toward a new approach of containing any power projection of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) People’s Liberation Army (PLA) to Australia’s north. The new approach would also help offset the delay and uncertainties surrounding the RAN’s troubled 12-vessel new submarine program, the product of the previous Government of Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, which will not see a new operational submarine for the RAN for dec-ades."

164: Happy 85th birthday to his Holiness the Dalai Lama, while the PRC plots more brutality in Tibet. Bhuchung Tsering, vice president of International Campaign for Tibet.
611
Image: Entitled: Kampa Dzong, Tibet [1904] John C. White [RESTORED] The image was nearly perfect to begin with. I smoothed out the clouds, got rid of some minor spot and scratch problems, evened the tones and added a bit more contrast. (I had previously wrongly attributed this image to John Baptist Noel, one of White's contemporaries in the region and another historical photography figure in his own right; my humble apologies to all viewers for the glaring error.)"British amateur photographer, who served in the Indian Public Works Department from 1876 and as political agent for Sikkim, Bhutan, and Tibetan affairs 1905–8. White accompanied the Younghusband Mission to Tibet in 1903–4 and during the campaign made a series of mainly landscape photographs, including a number of impressive panoramas. A selection of these was later issued in two photogravure volumes by the Calcutta photographers Johnston & Hoffmann as Tibet and Lhasa (1906). Owing to political sensitivities regarding the accompanying text, they were subsequently withdrawn, and are now extremely rare. A memoir, Sikhim and Bhutan: Experiences of Twenty Years on the North‐Eastern Frontier of India, appeared in 1909, and many of White's photographs accompany the articles on Sikkim and Bhutan which he later wrote for the National Geographic Magazine."Quoted from: John Claude White Biography - (1853–1918), Tibet and Lhasa arts.jrank.org/pages/11649/John-Claude-White.html#ixzz0rW...Kampa Dzong (trad. Khamber Jong; also Khampa Dzong), also referred to as the Tibetan hamlet of Gamba, sits just north of the point where Nepal, India (Sikkim) and Bhutan currently abuts the Chinese border. Tibet sat on the crossroads of history in the early 1900's, with a British force seeking to secure the northern border of its subcontinent possessions against incursion. Britain was alarmed that China was reportedly allowing unopposed Russian access to Tibet, thus putting another colonial power immediately north of India. As a prelude to that conflict, the British regional authorities attempted to negotiate with both Tibet and China and seek agreements with both governments. The meeting place was supposed to be at Kampa Dzong, see below:"The causes of the war are obscure, and it seems to have been primarily provoked by rumours circulating amongst the Calcutta-based British administration (Delhi was made imperial capital of India in 1911) that the Chinese government, (who nominally controlled Tibet), were planning to turn it over to the Russians, thus providing Russia with a direct route to British India and breaking the chain of semi-independent, mountainous buffer-states which separated India from the Russian Empire to the north. These rumours were seemingly supported by the facts of Russian exploration of Tibet. Russian explorer Gombojab Tsybikov was the first photographer of Lhasa, residing in it in 1900—1901 with the aid of the thirteenth Dalai Lama's Russian courtier Agvan Dorjiyev.In view of the rumors, the Viceroy, Lord Curzon in 1903 sent a request to the governments of China and Tibet for negotiations to be held at Khampa Dzong (Khamber Jong), a tiny Tibetan village north of Sikkim to establish trade agreements. The Chinese were willing, and ordered the thirteenth Dalai Lama to attend. However, the Dalai Lama refused, and also refused to provide transportation to enable the amban (the Chinese official based in Lhasa), You Tai, to attend. Curzon concluded that China had no power or authority to compel the Tibetan government, and gained approval from London to send a military expedition, led by Colonel Francis Younghusband, to Khampa Dzong. When no Tibetan or Chinese officials met them there, Younghusband advanced, with some 1,150 soldiers, 10,000 porters and laborers, and thousands of pack animals, to Tuna, fifty miles beyond the border. After waiting more months there, hoping in vain to be met by negotiators, the expedition received orders (in 1904) to continue toward Lhasa.Tibet's government, guided by the Dalai Lama was understandably unhappy about the presence of a large acquisitive foreign power dispatching a military mission to its capital, and began marshalling its armed forces. The government was fully aware that no help could be expected from the Chinese government, and so intended to use their arduous terrain and mountain-trained army to block the British path. The British authorities had also thought of the trials mountain fighting would pose, and so dispatched a force heavy with Gurkha and Pathan troops, who came from mountainous regions of British India. The entire British force numbered just over 3,000 fighting men and was accompanied by 7,000 sherpas, porters and camp followers. Permission for the operation was received from London, but it is not clear that the Balfour government was fully aware of the scale of the operation, or of the Tibetan intention to resist it."Source: www.absoluteastronomy.com/topics/British_expedition_to_Tibet Date | 1904, 2009-11-07 11:42:19 Source | Flickr (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Flickr) : Kampa Dzong, Tibet [1904 (https://www.flickr.com/photos/34607376@N08/4082676619) John C.

The answeris very simple, namely, that it is not. Domesticated oxen (togetherwith their extinct wild progenitors), gaur and gayal, bison, yak,and buffaloes collectively constitute the ox tribe. And since thedomesticated ox is the type of the whole group, they may all, in ageneral sense, be classed as oxen. Had the bison of Europe been madethe typical representative of the group, then that term might likewisehave been employed in the same general sense, and the gaur termeda bison as it now is an ox. But as matters stand, such a usage is totallyindefensible. The true domesticated oxen form one division of the group.Next to this comes a second and nearly allied section of the group com-prising the gaur, the gayal, and the banting ; all the members of which Text Appearing After Image: h 42 Great and Small Game of India, etc. are characterised by their elevated withers, short hair, and white-stockinged limbs. The third section includes the European andAmerican bisons (the former commonly miscalled aurochs, and the latterbuffalo), with which the yak may perhaps be included, all these havinglong hair on some part of the body, uniformly dark limbs, and lacking theridge-like hump of the second section. Lastly, there are the buffaloes,differing from all the others by the peculiar form of their horns. Eachsectional group is perfectly well defined, and it would be just as logical tocall the gaur a buffalo as to dub it a bison. But since there are few thingsmore difficult to amend than popular misapplications of names, a bison itwill probably remain among sportsmen for many years to come. Of the general characteristics of the ox tribe but little need be saidhere. With the exception of a few stunted island forms, the members ofthe group are large and heavily-built animals, w Evidence that the supply chain is moving back from the PRC while the Trade Deal Phase 1 hesitates.

In Nagorno-Karabakh, there are mosques in which Armenians have housed pigs.

159: The Great Firewall closes down Hong Kong communication. @Michael_Yon
753
Image:  The Great Wall in 1907 Michael Yon, Far East reporter based in Thailand, @Michael_Yon , in re: Office for Safeguarding National Security, China’s boot in Hong Kong.  The Great Firewall has descended; few communications today.  The Iron Curtain has fallen on HK.  More brutal than the old Soviet methods.  To be behind the Great Firewall means you can't access many websites without a VPN, which, itself, can be shut off.  If it is, Hong Kong will no longer be a global financial center, but merely like Shenzen or Shanghai.  Everyone knew this day was coming; that’s why everyone was on the streets. This was the Alamo.  They were desperate to stop it.  Did previous Washington administrations understand the power [and brutality] of Beijing?  No.  Safe for a European citizen to travel to HK to do business?  Depends on the person—neither Gordon nor I should.  All we can do now is apply political and economic pressure

158: 4/8 Our Lives, Our Fortunes and Our Sacred Honor: The Forging of American Independence, 1774-1776, by Richard R. Beeman.

Image: Continental Congress seal:  Drawing of a seal used by Thomas Mifflin as the President of the Continental Congress in 1783-4, which is a derivative of the Great Seal of the United States (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Seal_of_the_United_States) . It is possible the seal was used by all presidents of the Congress, but the seal apparently did not pass over to the federal government in 1789. The drawing was made in about 1885; it is not known if the artist (David McNeely Stauffer) worked from an actual wax impression or from earlier printed versions. Our Lives, Our Fortunes and Our Sacred Honor: The Forging of American Independence, 1774-1776, by Richard R. Beeman.  1st Edition In 1768, the Philadelphia physician Benjamin Rush stood before the empty throne of King George III, overcome with emotion as he gazed at the symbol of America’s connection with England. Eight years later, he became one of the fifty-six men to sign the Declaration of Independence, severing America forever from its mother country. Rush was not alone in his radical decision—many of those casting their votes in favor of independence did so with a combination of fear, reluctance, and even sadness.         In Our Lives, Our Fortunes and Our Sacred Honor, the acclaimed historian Richard R. Beeman examines the grueling twenty-two-month period between the meeting of the Continental Congress on September 5, 1774, and the audacious decision for independence in July of 1776. As late as 1774, American independence was hardly inevitable—indeed, most Americans found it neither desirable nor likely. When delegates from the thirteen colonies gathered in September, they were, in the words of John Adams, “a gathering of strangers.” Yet over the next two years, military, political, and diplomatic events catalyzed a change of unprecedented magnitude: the colonists’ rejection of their British identities in favor of American ones. In arresting detail, Beeman brings to life a cast of characters, including the relentless and passionate John Adams, Adams’ much-misunderstood foil John Dickinson, the fiery political activist Samuel Adams, and the relative political neophyte Thomas Jefferson; and with profound insight reveals their path from subjects of England to citizens of a new nation.         A vibrant narrative, Our Lives, Our Fortunes and Our Sacred Honor tells the remarkable story of how the delegates to the Continental Congress, through courage and compromise, came to dedicate themselves to the forging of American independence.

Winner of the Austin Civil War Round Table’s Daniel M. & Marilyn W. Laney Book Prize.  Winner of an Army Historical Foundation Distinguished Writing Award.   "A superb account" (The Wall Street Journal) of the longest and most decisive military campaign of the Civil War in Vicksburg, Mississippi, which opened the Mississippi River, split the Confederacy, freed tens of thousands of slaves, and made Ulysses S. Grant the most important general of the war. Vicksburg, Mississippi, was the last stronghold of the Confederacy on the Mississippi River. It prevented the Union from using the river for shipping between the Union-controlled Midwest and New Orleans and the Gulf of Mexico. The Union navy tried to take Vicksburg, which sat on a high bluff overlooking the river, but couldn't do it.

159: 8/8 Gettysburg: The Last Invasion, by Allen C. Guelzo.
563
Image: General Pickett's famous charge at Gettysburg.. The principal part of the Federal army was on the north side of the Chickahominy Hills division. Confederate forces met this large force with impetuous courage. Some of his brigades were broken. The national forces were steadily gaining ground. Jackson had not arrived. It was a critical moment. Three brigades under Wilcox were ordered forward against the Federal left flank, to make a diversion in favor of the attacking columns. Pickett’s brigade, making an independent diversion on the left of these brigades, developed the strong position and force of the Federals in Longstreet’s front. The latter at once resolved to change the feint into an attack, and orders for a general advance were issued. At this moment, Stonewall Jackson arrived, and the air was rent with shouts. Pickett’s brigade, supported by part of Anderson’s brigade, swept on to the charge with fierce grandeur.

Of the half-dozen full-length histories of the battle of Gettysburg written over the last century, none dives down so closely to the experience of the individual soldier, or looks so closely at the sway of politics over military decisions, or places the battle so firmly in the context of nineteenth-century military practice. Allen C. Guelzo shows us the face, the sights, and the sounds of nineteenth-century combat: the lay of the land, the fences and the stone walls, the gunpowder clouds that hampered movement and vision; the armies that caroused, foraged, kidnapped, sang, and were so filthy they could be smelled before they could be seen; the head-swimming difficulties of marshalling massive numbers of poorly trained soldiers, plus thousands of animals and wagons, with no better means of communication than those of Caesar and Alexander. What emerges is an untold story, from the trapped and terrified civilians in Gettysburg’s cellars to the insolent attitude of artillerymen; from the taste of gunpowder cartridges torn with the teeth to the sounds of marching columns, their tin cups clanking like an anvil chorus. Guelzo depicts the battle with unprecedented clarity, evoking a world where disoriented soldiers and officers wheel nearly blindly through woods and fields toward their clash, even as poetry and hymns spring to their minds with ease in the midst of carnage. Rebel soldiers look to march on Philadelphia and even New York, while the Union struggles to repel what will be the final invasion of the North. One hundred fifty years later, the cornerstone battle of the Civil War comes vividly to life as a national epic, inspiring both horror and admiration.

His pictures, actions, words in his speeches and his private letters are analyzed and pointed inward toward the person, to help us understand the man: the heart and soul of the man. This book is about the artifacts that are left us all these years later (letters, speeches and particularly pictures) — things that LIFE can show that allow us to know this man more intimately.

His pictures, actions, words in his speeches and his private letters are analyzed and pointed inward toward the person, to help us understand the man: the heart and soul of the man. This book is about the artifacts that are left us all these years later (letters, speeches and particularly pictures) — things that LIFE can show that allow us to know this man more intimately.

Now in the collection of the Amon Carter Museum of American Art (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amon_Carter_Museum_of_American_Art) . My Thoughts Be Bloody: The Bitter Rivalry Between Edwin and John Wilkes Booth, by Nora Titone.   John B. Lloyd (Narrator), Doris Kearns Goodwin (introduction and notes), Simon & Schuster Audio (Publisher).  Audible Audiobook – Unabridged  https://www.amazon.com/My-Thoughts-Be-Bloody-Rivalry/dp/B0047TB0J0/ref=tmm_aud_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1593989210&sr=1-1 My Thoughts Be Bloody, a sweeping family saga, revives an extraordinary figure whose name has been missing, until now, from the story of President Lincoln's death. Edwin Booth, John Wilkes's older brother by four years, was in his day the biggest star of the American stage. He won his celebrity at the precocious age of 19, before the Civil War began, when John Wilkes was a schoolboy. Without an account of Edwin Booth, the author Nora Titone argues, the real story of Lincoln's assassin has never been told. Using an array of private letters, diaries, and reminiscences of the Booth family, Titone has uncovered a hidden history that reveals the reasons why John Wilkes Booth became this country's most notorious assassin.  The details of the conspiracy to kill Lincoln have been well documented elsewhere. My Thoughts Be Bloody tells a new story, one that explains for the first time why Lincoln's assassin decided to conspire against the president in the first place, and sets that decision in the context of a bitterly divided family—and nation. By the end of this rivetting journey, listeners will see Abraham Lincoln's death less as the result of the war between the North and South and more as the climax of a dark struggle between two brothers who never wore the uniform of soldiers, except on stage.

It announced standards of conduct in wartime—concerning torture, prisoners of war, civilians, spies, and slaves—that shaped the course of the Civil War. By the twentieth century, Lincoln’s code would be incorporated into the Geneva Conventions and form the basis of a new international law of war. In this deeply original book, John Fabian Witt tells the fascinating history of the laws of war and its eminent cast of characters—Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Madison, and Lincoln—as they crafted the articles that would change the course of world history. Witt’s engrossing exploration of the dilemmas at the heart of the laws of war is a prehistory of our own era. Lincoln’s Code reveals that the heated controversies of twenty-first-century warfare have roots going back to the beginnings of American history. It is a compelling story of ideals under pressure and a landmark contribution to our understanding of the American experience.

Lincoln's Code: 2of4: The Laws of War in American History Hardcover – September 4, 2012 by John Fabian Witt (https://www.amazon.com/John-Fabian-Witt/e/B001JSEABC/ref=dp_byline_cont_book_1)   (Author) https://www.amazon.com/Lincolns-Code-Laws-American-History/dp/1416569839/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=witt+lincoln%27s+code&qid=1593913678&s=books&sr=1-1 In the closing days of 1862, just three weeks before Emancipation, the administration of Abraham Lincoln commissioned a code setting forth the laws of war for US armies. It announced standards of conduct in wartime—concerning torture, prisoners of war, civilians, spies, and slaves—that shaped the course of the Civil War. By the twentieth century, Lincoln’s code would be incorporated into the Geneva Conventions and form the basis of a new international law of war. In this deeply original book, John Fabian Witt tells the fascinating history of the laws of war and its eminent cast of characters—Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Madison, and Lincoln—as they crafted the articles that would change the course of world history. Witt’s engrossing exploration of the dilemmas at the heart of the laws of war is a prehistory of our own era. Lincoln’s Code reveals that the heated controversies of twenty-first-century warfare have roots going back to the beginnings of American history. It is a compelling story of ideals under pressure and a landmark contribution to our understanding of the American experience.

Madison helped to shape our country as perhaps no other Founder: collaborating on the Federalist Papers and the Bill of Rights, resisting government overreach by assembling one of the nation's first political parties (the Republicans, who became today's Democrats), and taking to the battlefield during the War of 1812, becoming the last president to lead troops in combat. In this penetrating biography, eminent historian Richard Brookhiser presents a vivid portrait of the "Father of the Constitution," an accomplished yet humble statesman who nourished Americans' fledgling liberty and vigorously defended the laws that have preserved it to this day.

In this audio, renowned Egyptologist Toby Wilkinson takes us on a journey downriver that is both history and travelogue. We begin at the First Nile Cataract, close to the modern city of Aswan. From there, Wilkinson guides us through the illustrious nation birthed by this great river. We see Thebes, with its Valley of the Kings, Valley of the Queens, and Luxor Temple. We visit the fertile Fayum, the Great Pyramid of Giza, and finally, the pulsing city of Cairo, where the Arab Spring erupted on the bridges over the water. Along the way, Wilkinson introduces us to the gods, pharaohs, and emperors who joined their fate to the Nile and gained immortality; and to the adventurers, archaeologists, and historians who have all fallen under its spell. Peerlessly erudite, vividly told, The Nile brings the course of this enduring river into stunning view.

From this position the assaults on EastCemetery Hill and Culps Hill were made. Severalother avenues reach other points of interest on thesouth slope of Culps Hill, Geary Avenue leading throughthe scene of the bitter fight between Johnsons andGearys men on July 3, in the morning. There are several ways to reach the scene of Long-streets attack on Sickles line and the Round Tops. The Emmitsburg Road, branching off from BaltimoreStreet at the southern end of the town, leads directly tothe Peach Orchard, lying just beyond the WheatfieldRoad. One may walk or drive completely around thePeach Orchard on Birney Avenue.

Image: Plan of the City of New York, with the recent and intended Improvements, Drawn from actual survey by William Bridges City Surveyor; AD 1807. Description | English: An interesting and unusual map, this is William Bridges’ 1807 revival or the failed 1801 Mangin-Goerck Plan. Those who know New York’s shoreline will pause at the perfect blocks and ridged angles of this plan no more accurate today than it was in 1801 when Mangin first presented it. Mangin, a talented French architect, and Goerck, an established New York Surveyor, were commissioned by the Common Council of New York to prepare a new regulatory map of the city. Though Goerck passed away before the plan could be completed, Mangin finished the plan on a grand scale, re-envisioning New York City in his own image. Mangin even added streets such as Mangin Street and Goerck Street which would have been submerged under the East River had they actually existed (as a side note another of Mangin’s Street’s, South Street, did eventually appear). The Mangin-Goerck plan went far beyond the Common Council’s dreams of an administrative plan and, due to its inclusion of “intended improvements”, new streets, and idealized block structure, enjoyed a short lifespan. It is curious then that in 1807 William Bridges, the talented City Surveyor who, in 1811, laid New York’s famous grid structure, resurrected and pirated the Mangin-Goerck Plan, attaching his own name to it. It was a private venture that led Bridges to piracy. He was commissioned by Dr. Samuel Mitchell to provide a map to illustrate Mitchell’s Picture of New York , a travel guide intended for foreign tourist. Perhaps Bridges chose the Mangin plan simply because, as a failed city plan, there were few obstacles to his use of it, but we do pity the hapless tourists who leapt into the east river in pursuit of Mangin Street. Though originally issued in 1807 for S. Mitchell’s Picture of New York , this example is a reissue prepared by John Hardy, Clerk of the Common Council, for the 1871 edition of the Manual of the Corporation of New York .

At the University of Chicago, the atom was split and Western civilization was packaged into the Great Books.  Yet even as Chicago led the way in creating mass-market culture, its artists pushed back in their own distinct voices. In literature, it was the outlaw novels of Nelson Algren (then carrying on a passionate affair with Simone de Beauvoir), the poems of Gwendolyn Brooks, and Studs Terkel’s oral histories. In music, it was the gospel of Mahalia Jackson, the urban blues of Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf, and the trippy avant-garde jazz of Sun Ra. In performance, it was the intimacy of Kukla, Fran, and Ollie, the “Chicago School” of television, and the improvisational comedy troupe Second City whose famous alumni are now everywhere in American entertainment.  Despite this diversity, racial divisions informed virtually every aspect of life in Chicago. The chaos - both constructive and destructive - of this period was set into motion by the second migration north of African Americans during World War II. As whites either fled to the suburbs or violently opposed integration, urban planners tried to design away "blight" with projects that marred a generation of American cities. The election of Mayor Richard J. Daley in 1955 launched a frenzy of new building that came at a terrible cost - monolithic housing projects for the black community and a new kind of self-satisfied provincialism that sped up the end of Chicago’s role as America’s meeting place.  In luminous prose, Chicago native Thomas Dyja re-creates the story of the city in its postwar prime and explains its profound impact on modern America.

Daley in 1955 launched a frenzy of new building that came at a terrible cost - monolithic housing projects for the black community and a new kind of self-satisfied provincialism that sped up the end of Chicago’s role as America’s meeting place.  In luminous prose, Chicago native Thomas Dyja re-creates the story of the city in its postwar prime and explains its profound impact on modern America.

This was certainly among the largest prominence eruptions seen by either the STEREO or SOHO missions. The length of the prominence appears to stretch almost halfway across the sun, about 500,000 miles. Prominences are cooler clouds of plasma that hover above the Sun’s surface, tethered by magnetic forces. They are notoriously unstable and commonly erupt as this one did in a dramatic fashion. The video clip shows about 19 hours of activity.   To learn more or donwload the high res files go to: http://stereo.gsfc.nasa.gov/gallery/item.php?id=selects&iid=122   NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (http://www.nasa.gov/centers/goddard/home/index.html) is home to the nation's largest organization of combined scientists, engineers and technologists that build spacecraft, instruments and new technology to study the Earth, the sun, our solar system, and the universe. 2/2: The cosmology problem with not knowing how much of the heavy element Oxygen is in our Sun.

Photo: This sequence of nine images taken by the Surface Stereo Imager on NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander shows the sun rising on the morning of the lander's 101st Martian day after landing.  The images were taken on Sept. 5, 2008. The local solar times at the landing site for the nine images were between 1:23 a.m. and 1:41 a.m.  The landing site is on far-northern Mars, and the mission started in late northern spring. For nearly the entire first 90 Martian days of the mission, the sun never set below the horizon. As the amount of sunshine each day declined steadily after that, so has the amount of electricity available for the solar-powered spacecraft.  The Phoenix Mission is led by the University of Arizona, Tucson, on behalf of NASA. Project management of the mission is by JPL, Pasadena, Calif. Spacecraft development was by Lockheed Martin Space Systems, Denver.  Image credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/University of Arizona/Texas A&M University  1/2: The cosmology problem with not knowing how much of the heavy element Oxygen is in our Sun.

126: Joe Biden says he’s “constantly tested” for cognitive problems; no record thereof; puzzling. @LizPeek
524
Image:  A page from the American Phrenological Journal Liz Peek, @LizPeek, TheHill and Fox News, in re:  Joe Biden asked about cognitive issues. Everyone lucky enough to grow older becomes absent-minded; but Biden said he’s regularly tested, of which there’s no record.  First time in 88 days he’d faced the press. He also speaks for three minutes at fundraisers and leaves all the talk to others. His wife is doing as many as he is. Strange behavior for someone who clearly does not have an enthusiastic response from Democrats (e.g., 58% in Kentucky).  He’s being heavily protected.  He also has not made a case for what he intends to do as president.  “Constantly tested” – interested to see the results.

New homes: 690,000 units. House prices up about 5%.  We’ve never had a man-made recession before.  We’ve spent only half of the funds from the CARES program.  Barry Lyndon: the dinner tables were very far apart; in recent years in New York, getting too close and cramped.

Yes.                    Behooves the US to see the PRC suffer economic and strategic decline under virus and military circumstance.  Xi must ensure that Trump is not re-elected.  PRC has its factories working, but nowhere to sell; and massive flooding from Three Gorges Dam.  We may be seeing the structural failure of the dam. Were that to happen, would affect 300 million people.          Joe Biden observed that China would “never beat the US,” but he has a more accommodating position vis-à-vis China.  Biden would persist with the Clinton and Obama policies: ample room to get away with its economic and other policies; Belt and Road is about how do you exert control over areas of the world?    Britain goes with the Commonwealth and perhaps France in confronting the PRC, but the EU is increasingly dependent on China, is beholden to Beijing. Would leave Western Europe leaderless against Beijing.

China is pushing against India to show strength. Last year Modi put a million troops in Jammu and Kashmir, abrogating a treaty. Part of Kashmir is occupied by India, part by China, part by Pakistan, the last providing the land bridge from China to Pakistan, letting it ship goods to Indian Ocean ports. Beijing has created an anti-PRC coalition.          Xi has made a few significant gains in the Pacific: e.g., Kiribas changed ties from Taiwan to Beijing.  Trying to intimidate ASEAN countries; having a little success in Burma/Myanmar. However, China can't bld a sufficient strategic reach to challenge the US and the West, or to resuscitate its economy – if, of course, the West recovers.

Lane, Olympic shooter and gold medalist who was hired by the New York City Police Department (NYPD) in 1914 to train police officers how to shoot. Lane competed in two Olympics, winning three gold medals (50m Free Pistol, 50m Team Free Pistol, and 50m Rapid Fire Pistol) in the 1912 Olympic Games (Stockhom), plus a bronze medal (50m Free Pistol) and two more gold medals (50m Team Free Pistol, 50m Rapid Fire Pistol) in the 1920 Olympic Games (Antwerp). Lane would later be among the first inducted into the United States International Shooters Hall of Fame in 1991. Also of interest in this photograph is the pistol Lane is shooting. It is a Colt Model 1908 Hammerless Pistol (Colt M1908), designed by John Moses Browning, and manufactured by Colt. It is noteworthy because during this period the NYPD became one of the few police departments of the era to have adopted a semi-automatic pistol as an issued firearm (in this case for its detectives.) However, the M1908's career in the NYPD was short lived, and it was withdrawn from NYPD service by 1918 (thought to be because of accidental/negligent discharges by some of the officers it was issued to). The NYPD would not authorize the widespread issue of semi-automatic pistols again until 1993. http://JohnBatchelorShow.com/contact http://JohnBatchelorShow.com/schedules Parler: @BatchelorShow Twitter: @BatchelorShow "Defund the Police" aims to replace the "Broken Windows" policy of the last 30 years. @AndrewCMcCarthy @NRO @ThadMcCotter @theamgreatness https://www.nationalreview.com/2020/06/police-reform-and-the-making-of-a-racism-narrative/

Horowitz shows that their very attacks—targeting a man whose mission has been to “Drain the Swamp” and “Make America Great Again” backfired, turning Trump himself into a near martyrwhile igniting the fervor of his “base.” With the 2020 election upon us, New York Times bestselling author David Horowitz chronicles the brutal battles, bitter backlash, and leftwing lies Trump has faced as Democrats repeatedly try to sabotage his presidency. You’ll discover the left’s terrifying socialist and, in some cases, communist agendas as you’ve never seen them before. Trump’s response? In the meantime, he’s going to steamroll this opposition in November using the same playbook he has used to win before. In BLITZ you will find shocking revelations: The 9 biggest dangers to America the left poses—their agenda will blow your mind. Show me the money: naming the billionaires and fat cats really out to get Trump. How patriotism suddenly became “white nationalism” slinking Trump to Hitler and the KKK . The growing secularism of the left and how the hate pushed against Christians will backfire. Why every effort to demonize Trump and his supporters is failing like crazy. Obama’s agenda: how the former president casts a much greater shadow over Trump’s political woes than you ever imagined. The Genius: how Trump’s brilliant strategy has worked and will continue to work, making him president again in 2021! The effort to remove and destroy our duly elected President may be the greatest challenge America has faced since the Civil War, explains Horowitz. For the first time BLITZ exposes the left’s strategy to take down Trump, and how Trump not only beat them at their own game, but how he’s turning the tables on them to achieve a stunning reelection win come November. “An indispensable book—BLITZ— explaining why today’s Democrats are so dangerous and why President Trump is their nemesis.” — Mark R. Levin, New York Times bestselling author of Unfreedom of the Press “BLITZ is the latest must-read from Horowitz: insightful, hard-hitting, controversial, and uncompromising.

Royal Geographical Society - http://dl.wdl.org/475.png Gallery: http://www.wdl.org/en/item/475/ This map originally appeared in the February 1879 issue of the Proceedings of the Royal Geographical Society and Monthly Record of Geography in connection with an article by C.R. Markham entitled “The Upper Basin of the Kabul River.” The Hindu Kush is a range of high mountains that extends some 800 kilometers in a northeast-to-southwest direction from the Pamir Mountains near the Pakistan-China border, through Pakistan, and into western Afghanistan. The range forms the drainage divide between two great river systems, the Amu Darya to the northwest, and the Indus to the southeast. The ancient Greeks called the Amu Darya the Oxus, the name used on this map. The passes through the Hindu Kush historically have been of great military significance. Alexander the Great (356-323 BC) crossed these mountains with his army in 329 BC, most likely over the Khawak Pass, during a campaign to suppress a revolt against his authority in Bactria, an eastern province of the Persian Empire.

The big question is, how much voter fraud will have to be used?  Russian people are alert to electoral fraud. Putin fatigue. Trust measure: down to about 32%, was at 70% or so.

Cleo Paskal, non-resident senior Fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, in re:  The latest in India.  A wide front on Himalayan frontier: a major Chinese deployment across the Line of Actual Control.  China has declared about four different lines; from 1962, China has advanced much past that line.  Definitely China creating the situation; escalation can stop if China withdraws back to originally-agreed line.  Incursions in prior years; this time is different, much grimmer.  Probably more than China can deal with, since it’s also taking on six countries in the South China Sea plus the US Navy.   India is a democracy where they care about the twenty-nine whom China killed on the border.  Universally discussed among all Indians. China does not know how to handle a defeat.  The transgressions are so clear; this is a volatile, complex situation.  Talk of how to build up the Quad. Japan needs to bolster its capabilities, interoperability.  India wants C130s, weapons to [intimidate] China at the border, but because of the Wuhan flu, India is broke. US needs to do lend-lease to India. Concerned about corruption in Delhi, might buy wrong weapons systems, e.g., from Russia, which is close to China.   China’s taking on everybody makes no sense, so it must be to distract Chinese people from domestic matters.  https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/defence/ladakh-standoff-indias-allies-pitching-in-with-weapons-ammunition/articleshow/76680551.cms

Deleting twitter and other accounts to sterilize it as much as possible.  Going underground.   The law probably will be enacted tomorrow; Beijing can immediately grab patriots and haul them into [realistically: prison and torture, never to be heard of again] on Mainland.  This tears families in half. Many tragic stories already.  This is an escalation of bad relations between Beijing and  Washington.  Hong Kong’s longer-term future will not be as a global financial center, as it will not be under the rule of law. Expect New York and London to receive the [overflow]. Millions of videos have been made over the several years, so no way to hide.   Thailand cooperates with China and people have been kidnapped from here.  https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-hongkong-china-mofa/china-to-impose-visa-restrictions-on-us-individuals-over-hong-kong-idUSKBN2400P2

The action is traced from Farragut's failed navy-only efforts to bypass the city, through Grant's botched series of canal schemes, to his brilliant series of maneuvers that left Pemberton and his garrison besieged for more than 40 days. Key Union and Confederate players are identified and the strategic circumstances that made Vicksburg the lynchpin of the Western Theater are described. Appendices include information about Vicksburg National Military Park, the Federal and Confederate Orders of Battle and the Medal of Honor at Vicksburg.

As a young immigrant, Fred Harvey worked his way up from dishwasher to household name: He was Ray Kroc before McDonald's, J. Willard Marriott before Marriott Hotels, Howard Schultz before Starbucks. His eating houses and hotels along the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe railroad (including historic lodges still in use at the Grand Canyon) were patronized by princes, presidents, and countless ordinary travelers looking for the best cup of coffee in the country. Harvey's staff of carefully screened single young women—the celebrated Harvey Girls—were the country's first female workforce and became genuine Americana, even inspiring an MGM musical starring Judy Garland.  With the verve and passion of Fred Harvey himself, Stephen Fried tells the story of how this visionary built his business from a single lunch counter into a family empire whose marketing and innovations we still encounter in myriad ways.

Today he is a curiosity in American history, but as Gail Collins shows in this entertaining and revelatory biography, he and his career are worth a closer look. The son of a signer of the Declaration of Independence, Harrison was a celebrated general whose exploits at the Battle of Tippecanoe and in the War of 1812 propelled him into politics, and in time he became a leader of the new Whig Party, alongside Daniel Webster and Henry Clay. But it was his presidential campaign of 1840 that made an indelible mark on American political history.  Collins takes us back to that pivotal year, when Harrison's "Log Cabin and Hard Cider" campaign transformed the way candidates pursued the presidency. It was the first campaign that featured mass rallies, personal appearances by the candidate, and catchy campaign slogans like "Tippecanoe and Tyler, Too." Harrison's victory marked the coming-of-age of a new political system, and its impact is still felt in American politics today. It may have been only a one-month administration, but we're still feeling the effects.

654
Image:  Hannah Duston (December 23, 1657 – March 6, 1736) was a colonial Massachusetts Puritan mother of nine[Note 1] who was taken captive by Abenaki people from Québec during King William's War, with her newborn daughter, during the Raid on Haverhill in 1697, in which 27 colonists were killed. While detained on an island in the Merrimack River in present-day Boscawen, New Hampshire, she killed and scalped ten of the Native American family members holding them hostage, with the assistance of two other captives. She claimed the Abenaki had killed her baby during the journey to the island.

But before Custer or Lewis and Clark, before the first Conestoga wagons rumbled across the Plains, it was the East that marked the frontier—the boundary between complex Native cultures and the first colonizing Europeans. Here is the older, wilder, darker history of a time when the land between the Atlantic and the Appalachians was contested ground—when radically different societies adopted and adapted the ways of the other, while struggling for control of what all considered to be their land.  The First Frontier traces two and a half centuries of history through poignant, mostly unheralded personal stories, like that of a Harvard-educated Indian caught up in seventeenth-century civil warfare, a mixed-blood interpreter trying to straddle his white and Native heritage, and a Puritan woman wielding a scalping knife whose bloody deeds still resonate uneasily today. It is the first book in years to paint a sweeping picture of the Eastern frontier, combining vivid storytelling with the latest research to bring to life modern America’s tumultuous, uncertain beginnings.

104: 1/4 The First Frontier: The Forgotten History of Struggle, Savagery, and Endurance in Early America, by Scott Weidensaul

But before Custer or Lewis and Clark, before the first Conestoga wagons rumbled across the Plains, it was the East that marked the frontier—the boundary between complex Native cultures and the first colonizing Europeans. Here is the older, wilder, darker history of a time when the land between the Atlantic and the Appalachians was contested ground—when radically different societies adopted and adapted the ways of the other, while struggling for control of what all considered to be their land.  The First Frontier traces two and a half centuries of history through poignant, mostly unheralded personal stories, like that of a Harvard-educated Indian caught up in seventeenth-century civil warfare, a mixed-blood interpreter trying to straddle his white and Native heritage, and a Puritan woman wielding a scalping knife whose bloody deeds still resonate uneasily today. It is the first book in years to paint a sweeping picture of the Eastern frontier, combining vivid storytelling with the latest research to bring to life modern America’s tumultuous, uncertain beginnings.

As the acclaimed historian Heather Cox Richardson shows in Wounded Knee, the massacre grew out of a set of political forces all too familiar to us today: fierce partisanship, heated political rhetoric, and an irresponsible, profit-driven media.  Richardson tells a dramatically new story about the Wounded Knee massacre, revealing that its origins lay not in the West but in the corridors of political power back East. Politicians in Washington, Democrat and Republican alike, sought to set the stage for mass murder by exploiting an age-old political tool: fear.  Assiduously researched and beautifully written, Wounded Knee will be the definitive account of an epochal American tragedy.

Plotted in secret, launched in the dark, John Brown's raid on Harpers Ferry was a pivotal moment in U.S. history. Few Americans know the true story of the men and women who launched a desperate strike at the slaveholding South. Now, Midnight Rising portrays Brown's uprising in vivid color, revealing a country on the brink of explosive conflict.  Brown, the descendant of New England Puritans, saw slavery as a sin against America's founding principles. Unlike most abolitionists, he was willing to take up arms, and in 1859 he prepared for battle at a hideout in Maryland, joined by his teenage daughter, three of his sons, and a guerrilla band that included former slaves and a dashing spy. On October 17, the raiders seized Harpers Ferry, stunning the nation and prompting a counterattack led by Robert E. Lee. After Brown's capture, his defiant eloquence galvanized the North and appalled the South, which considered Brown a terrorist. The raid also helped elect Abraham Lincoln, who later began to fulfill Brown's dream with the Emancipation Proclamation, a measure he called "a John Brown raid, on a gigantic scale." Tony Horwitz's riveting book travels antebellum America to deliver both a taut historical drama and a telling portrait of a nation divided—a time that still resonates in ours.

Born in Massachusetts in 1745, Bancroft moved to England as a young man in the 1760s and began building a respectable résumé as both a scientist and a man of letters. In recognition of his works in natural history, Bancroft was unanimously elected to the Royal Society, and while working to secure French aid for the American Revolution, he became a close associate of such luminaries as Benjamin Franklin, Silas Deane, and John Adams. Though lauded in his time as a staunch American patriot, when the British diplomatic archives were opened in the late nineteenth century, it was revealed that Bancroft led a secret life as a British agent acting against French and American interests. In this book, the first complete biography of Bancroft, historian Thomas J. Schaeper reveals the full extent of the agent's deception during the crucial years of the American Revolution. Operating under aliases, working in ciphers, and leaving coded messages in the trees of Paris's Tuileries Gardens, Bancroft filtered information from unsuspecting figures including Franklin and Deane back to his contacts in Britain, navigating a complicated web of political allegiances. Through Schaeper's keen analysis of Bancroft's correspondence and diplomatic records, this biography reveals whether Bancroft should ultimately be considered a traitor to America or a patriot to Britain.

Operating under aliases, working in ciphers, and leaving coded messages in the trees of Paris's Tuileries Gardens, Bancroft filtered information from unsuspecting figures including Franklin and Deane back to his contacts in Britain, navigating a complicated web of political allegiances. Through Schaeper's keen analysis of Bancroft's correspondence and diplomatic records, this biography reveals whether Bancroft should ultimately be considered a traitor to America or a patriot to Britain.

Photo:  As depicted in this illustration, Cassini will plunge into Saturn's atmosphere on Sept. 15, 2017. Using its attitude control thrusters, the spacecraft will work to keep its antenna pointed at Earth while it sends its final data, including the composition of Saturn's upper atmosphere. The atmospheric torque will quickly become stronger than what the thrusters can compensate for, and after that point, Cassini will begin to tumble. When this happens, its radio connection to Earth will be severed, ending the mission. Following loss of signal, the spacecraft will burn up like a meteor in Saturn's upper atmosphere.The Cassini mission is a cooperative project of NASA, ESA (the European Space Agency) and the Italian Space Agency. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, manages the mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington.For more information about the Cassini-Huygens mission visit http://www.nasa.gov/cassini and http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov (http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/) .

Thetariffs imposed by A^enezuela are enough to stifle mostindustries. Shoes, for instance, pay a tariff of $2.40 apound. That is prohibitive. On the other hand, agricultureis suffering. There are no large operations. The farmeris getting along from hand to mouth. Coffee, the greatstaple, is bringing poor prices, and the planter fears to goahead. Tariffs, therefore, are the principal revenue pro-ducers. And vet the country is rich. Xature has givenus resources, the end of which no man can tell.

We began now to realize tothe full our dream of earlier days, to settle on a farm andbuild a home. Three neighbors were all we had, and the nearest livednearly two miles away. Two of them kept bachelors hall.The thick, high timber made it impossible for us to see anyof our neighbors houses. We could reach only one by aroad; to the others we might go by a trail. Under such courditions we could not have a public school. This, however,did not keep us from having a school of our own. One day one of our farther-off neighbors, who lived morethan four miles away, came to visit us.

In Churchill, Andrew Roberts gives listeners the full and definitive Winston Churchill, from birth to lasting legacy, as personally revealing as it is compulsively listenable. Roberts gained exclusive access to extensive new material: transcripts of War Cabinet meetings, diaries, letters, and unpublished memoirs from Churchill's contemporaries. The Royal Family permitted Roberts—in a first for a Churchill biographer—to read the detailed notes taken by King George VI in his diary after his weekly meetings with Churchill during World War II. This treasure trove of access allows Roberts to understand the man in revelatory new ways, and to identify the hidden forces fueling Churchill's legendary drive.   We think of Churchill as a hero who saved civilization from the evils of Nazism and warned of the grave crimes of Soviet communism, but Roberts's masterwork reveals that he has as much to teach us about the challenges leaders face today—and the fundamental values of courage, tenacity, leadership, and moral conviction.

But how did young Winston become Churchill? What gave him the strength to take on the superior force of Nazi Germany when bombs rained on London and so many others had caved in? In Churchill, Andrew Roberts gives listeners the full and definitive Winston Churchill, from birth to lasting legacy, as personally revealing as it is compulsively listenable.   Roberts gained exclusive access to extensive new material: transcripts of War Cabinet meetings, diaries, letters, and unpublished memoirs from Churchill's contemporaries. The Royal Family permitted Roberts—in a first for a Churchill biographer—to read the detailed notes taken by King George VI in his diary after his weekly meetings with Churchill during World War II. This treasure trove of access allows Roberts to understand the man in revelatory new ways, and to identify the hidden forces fueling Churchill's legendary drive.   We think of Churchill as a hero who saved civilization from the evils of Nazism and warned of the grave crimes of Soviet communism, but Roberts's masterwork reveals that he has as much to teach us about the challenges leaders face today—and the fundamental values of courage, tenacity, leadership, and moral conviction.

One reason for this is, naturally,the extreme poverty of the people in general,which forbids their spending money on anythingbeyond the actual necessities of life. Another isthe fact that almost every household is, to a greatextent, self-supplying. All Korean women can Korea spin and weave, and many of them do the tailoringand shoe making for the family ; while the menmanufacture the harness for the beasts, the housefurniture, and the rude implements of the farm.All these articles are, therefore, in little demand,and those who manufacture them are forced tosell at so small a profit that they cannot afford tospend much time over them. But even in themaking of pottery, which is entirely in the handsof the professional worker, there is displayed noneof that feeling for design and appropriate orna-ment which makes even the most ordinary speci-mens from China or Japan such a joy to everylover of the beautiful. The usual complaint ofthe tourist in Korea is that there is nothing tobuy. 64 http://JohnBatchelorShow.com/contact http://JohnBatchelorShow.com/schedules Twitter: @BatchelorShow North Korea's Kim siblings play Good Cop/Bad Cop with predictable provocations.

On top, Justice looks at it from above, as does a figure holding a flaming sword and a scroll that reads "men, leaving the natural use of the woman" (Romans 1:27). The conveyed meaning is that Dutch sodomites will incur God's wrath, who, as a consequence, will destroy the Netherlands.Italiano: Incisione anonima che ritrae sullo sfondo l'Olanda distrutta dall'acqua e dal fuoco dall'ira divina per i peccati dei sodomiti, mentre in primo piano allegorie della Verità e della Virtù scoprono un gruppo di sodomiti dal velo di segretezza sotto cui si erano nascosti.

John Yoo, Berkeley Law, NRO, AEI, Hoover; in re: Supreme Court 5-4 decision to turn away President Trump’s DACA intentions.  Pres Obama decreed it by Executive Order, used prosecutorial discretion.  Administrative Procedure Act takes a year at fastest. Court thereby requires a president to do an unconstitutional deed until it’s all been resolved, which is wrong.  Violation of separation of powers, as a president is thereby forced to continue a program initiated by a previous president.  Look for a boom and bust cycle on DACA; only Congress can create a stable program.

At stake, 177 jobs.  The spaceport, to be called the Space Hub Sutherland, would be built at A'Mhoine on the Moine Peninsula in the county of Sutherland, a few miles from Scotland's Atlantic coast. This facility would enable vertical rockets to launch small satellites into low Earth polar and sun-synchronous orbits.        Astra, Vox, Virgin Orbit, Rocket Lab, all are players.

My friends do the first, but won’t say why out of fear of their own children not being given preference, or of their becoming unpopular with their associates. Woodrow Wilson segregated the military—appalling.  Talk of renaming Yale (Elihu Yale).  This is coming from a well of utter ignorance. Much of this has zero to do wit h Black Lives Matter, such as a Denver memorial of the Armenian genocide,  The effort to obliterate our history is to obliterate all that formed us.

833
Image: Paralysis:  John Henry Fuseli, The Nightmare Unpredicted swift recovery metrics worldwide.  @LizPeek Elizabeth Peek, TheHill and Fox News; in re: US and global economies. The market keeps going higher; NASDAQ is leading the Dow. Today’s housing number was the most recent in a series of better-than-expected, up 17% over April.  No one has any idea how this is happening because we’ve never done this before.  Right now, it's clearly a V-shaped recovery, also in the UK, EU and China.  Pent-up demand, esp in housing.  Company burdens itself with too much debt in a new landscape? The scars of the 2008-2009 recession were deep; lack of liquidity was prominent. What we’ve seen here is companies’ preparing for the worst.   Rates are near zero.  All their numbers were wrong; why should we have confidence?  They decided to err on the side of caution. I give them some slack; the question is, where do we go from here?  The shutdown was damaging on the health front, from suicides to cancer patients’ not getting treatment.   We won’t do a shutdown again.  The extra $600 per week on unemployment insurance has prevented many from seeking work.

Image:  Joseph Sternberg, WSJ political economics column; in London; in re: Boris Johnson, who was elected for Brexit but has become the virus minister, has decided that two meters’ distance is no good for business; will use one meter.  Not much science on the topic.  Scientists said it’s a political question; pols said the needed scientific data.   We’ll have to accept a little more risk for an economy to function.  Traffic is picking up again; more people shopping wearing masks. Reduction of social distancing will help a lot—not just how many a store, but convenience.   Is the recovery V here?   Govt subsidized 80% of salary where the funds went through the employer to employee, maintaining the bond.  Brexit: are the EU and UK “whispering happily” to each other? Depends on whom you ask.  Can't predict how it’ll resolve at the end of this year.

Image:  Joseph Sternberg, WSJ political economics column; in London; in re: Protest in general, income inequality, safety.   Mass anger, twitter mob, Internet shaming, firing editors for wrong-think. Outrage has always been a source of political capital.  We have an outrage hyperinflation right now.  Each portion becomes worth less, so need more and more to maintain the level.  People trying to generate more outrage to cut through social media noise. Cancel culture, “wokeness” never takes yes for an answer.  Once Greenspan called a bubble “irrational exuberance.”  Are we in a bubble-bldg phase?  Yes, an outrage bubble.  People can leverage it into speaking contracts, publishing. TV appearances.    Now, there’s so much you have to tune some of it out.   Bubbles collapse when no one says it’ll go higher.  One way may be when people realize you can't buy anything with this money any more. Already won’t buy social peace.  When will companies stop giving in to twitter mobs?

Image:   Daniel Griswold, Mercatus Center,  in re:  Trade the money for the wall for DACA? Didn't. Little pieces of the pie.  Constitutional/Supreme Court ruling, and ___  .  I think the Court got it wrong; the Executive has the right to end the program since it was created by Executive order I fear that the bar is now set too high: an Executive order becomes almost a fiat. It’s Congress who needs to fix this issue.  Will Congress continue to refuse this?  Perhaps under current situation. Trump: “Does anyone really want to throw out accomplished young people, some of whom have served in the military?”  Unfortunately, some Republicans simply oppose it.  By definition, need to be in school with no felony conviction. Six or seven hundred thousand have applied; probably well over a million here.  We need them. By now, DACA children have their own children.  Comprehensive immigration reform. We need to do this piecemeal.  Two-thirds of Americans support legalizing them.   Stephen Miler and other advisors on the farther right are dead-set against it.

Image:   David Henderson, Hoover and WSJ, in re: The lockdown: how was the calculation made of the expected benefits of $7.9 trillion?  The Imperial College of London analysis was filled with analytic and coding errors, and concerned mitigation, only; estimated that we’d save 1.76 million lives within months. Wrong.   Economists figure that there’s a value of a statistical life. Early on, Trump used the Imperial College numbers, product of a mistaken algorithm.  All the calculations have gone lower, incl the number of lives thought to be saved. Best study is from Berkeley: saved 76,000 lives.  Quarterly GDP estimate:  maybe 40% fall [diminution] for second quarter. I opposed the lockdowns from the start because it was all based on a model, not data. To reduce economic freedom for a few hundred million people for months based on a model is bad.  Cuomo issued an executive order in March requiring nursing homes to take in Covid-positive elders; 40% of the deaths were from there

Photo: Joseph Thomas (1800-1875) Venezuela "En la Vista de la ciudad de Caracas, del inglés Joseph Thomas - pintor que, según las investigaciones de Alfredo Boulton, entró y salió del país con bastante frecuencia entre los años 1837 y 1844 - podemos observar con relativa precisión, además de la grandiosidad del paisaje natural y sus inmensas proporciones, el emplazamiento general de la ciudad, las diferencias volumétricas y escala de las edificaciones. Su imagen de Caracas, la única obra artística que ha sido identificada con su nombre, es una de las más descriptivas de la extensión y la forma de la ciudad porque, aunque la mirada del autor se centra, como en las imágenes anteriores, en la grandiosidad natural, en ella también se observan detalles arquitectónicos y un registro de las residencias capitalinas más importantes; esto sigue un modelo tradicional europeo de las visiones topográficas donde, a modo de leyenda, se enumeraban las edificaciones o monumentos. La apariencia general sigue siendo ordenada, limpia y con una atmósfera serena, no del todo acorde con nuestro ambiente tropical. Es una diferencia que bien señala Palenzuela: "El grabado de Thomas está lleno de detalles: muros, casas, patios, iglesias, calles, palmeras, ruinas, la extraordinaria montaña y, por si fuera poco, algunos modales en el vestir citadino. Su atmósfera es propia de un clima frío. Las construcciones parecen sólidas.
