This is sort of odd.

I searched for “Church Report” and got some report on Gitmo.
I searched for “Frank Church” and got a Black minister.
I the searched for “Sen Frank Church” and finally got the Chairman o the United States Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities.

I know you did your best to behave and contain your exuberant spirit today, Gus. That's the most anyone could ask of such a proud dad.

You have to say church committee report, which was as close to an inkind contribution to the enemy as one could imagine. That other report was very informative as what actually went on with interrogations as mark thiessen noted

Thank you Matt. I've told my son several times, that he has lived a better life as a Catholic, as an Eagle Scout, and as my Son, than I did, at his age.

JM Hanes

It was still 88° hours after the sun went down last night, so my ceiling fans got their first real workout of the season, and I began dusting off my erstwhile collection of summer fans. Since heat exhaustion seemed to be on folks minds, I thought I'd share a few personal fan recommendations [and no, I don't get any Amazon commissions!]


#1. The "Necklace Fan" is one of my all time favs whether I'm out in the woods or out doing errands. It's a little bigger than a deck of cards and you wear it around your neck. Whats "cool" about it is that it pulls in air from the front, and then shoots it upward from the top directly at your neck and face. It may not be quite as thrilling as an ice-cold wet towel, but it's surprisingly effective. It weighs very little, and I often forget I'm even wearing it. I had it on when I stopped by my doctor's office once, and everybody thought it was some sort of medical device. This is sort of the adult version of all those really cheap-o kiddie fans.

JMH-Fans-1-2
#2. This is a great little 5" Battery Operated Fan that is still lightweight enough to stick in a backpack. It moves more air than you might think. The two D batteries are in a hinged compartment at the back which can be dropped down for stability. I have a bunch of these (in tasteful beige) just dotted around the house.


JMH-Fans-3

#3. This Battery Powered 10" Fan is the portable I turn on when I need to cool off in a hurry outside or don't have electricity (like reorganizing a storage unit), or when I just don't feel like dragging an electric fan into position. It does come with an AC adapter, but I like to use the 8 D cells batteries for stability as well as mobility. When the battery compartment is flipped up, it really doesn't take up much space. With the compartment flipped all the way down, you can balance it on uneven ground pretty much anywhere. You can adjust it incrementally to change the angle of the blower, so it can blow directly at you, or upwards at your choice of angles. I wouldn't want to hike around with it for long, but if you're parking anywhere near your outdoor destination, it's great. I keep one on my desk, and out on the porch. I've been known to balance one on a kitchen window sill for a little extra outward pull when making things like… toast

JMH-Fans-4-5

#4. I probably wouldn't ever have bought this fan myself, because of the expense, but I received one as a gift, and I must say I've never had a table fan that moved as much air as this 10" Dyson does. Needless to say, t's a plug in fan, not a portable, but it's really pretty amazing, and not very noisy, which is a big plus in my book. Easy to clean, too.

#5. Evey year I spot some intriguing new model, so here is this year's Experiment neck fan. It's recharges via USB which I'm not crazy about, but I'll let you know how it goes. Apparently the antennae are bendy little things....


Then there are the plain, low tech, white paper folding hand fans that I originally bought in bulk for a project that didn't happen. Now I almost always stick a couple in my purse, especially for outdoor social occasions, because some poor red-faced guest will inevitably want to share the breeze. [Old Lurker, you might want a basket of these on hand for the wedding if you're going to be outside. You'd never find clarice recommending anything this cheap!]

paper fan


And when I really, really have to get something done outside, even if it's hot as hell, a monster like the one below comes in very handy, if you've got an extension cord that can handle it. I bought the one I've got at Lowe's or Home Depot, but this one will give you the picture. It's like having your own personal wind tunnel, but I can't pretend it's quiet.
Big Fan

Alas, I can't remember where I put my grandfather's celluloid collapsable auto fan, but hopefully it will turn up soon.

So, stay safe. It's a jungle out there!

Pinandpuller

Since I'm going full pseudoscience retard allow me to throw something out for you, jim. Interest rates as a proxy marker for intelligence. That's more or less Gregory Clark's theory.

Interest rates, which reflect a society’s time preferences, have been very high — about 10% — from the earliest historical times and for all societies before 1400 AD for which there is data. Interest rates then entered a period of steady decline, reaching about 3% by 1850. Because inflation and other pressures on interest rates were largely absent, Clark argues, the falling interest rates indicate that people were becoming less impulsive, more patient, and more willing to save.

These behavioral changes in the English population between 1200 and 1800 were of pivotal economic importance. They gradually transformed a violent and undisciplined peasant population into an efficient and productive workforce. Turning up punctually for work every day and enduring eight eight hours or more of repetitive labor is far from being a natural human behavior. Hunter-gatherers do not willingly embrace such occupations, but agrarian societies from their beginning demanded the discipline to labor in the fields and to plant and harvest at the correct times. Disciplined behaviors were probably evolving gradually within the agrarian English population for many centuries before 1200, the point at which they can be documented.

We transitioned from an Agrarian economy to an Industrial economy quite a long time ago. Why is there this clamoring to backslide ie "Who will pick our crops?"

He bought an attachment for a skid steer which picks up those 10 bales. He can stack three high on the ground or one or two high on a trailer. At what point is it economically feasible to roll out more machines to cut manual farm labor? When John Deere votes Democrat?

Here's another excerpt from the, um, Time piece. Speaking of puns.

In his book The Wealth and Poverty of Nations, the economic historian David Landes examines every possible factor for explaining the rise of the West and the stagnation of China and concludes, in essence, that the answer lies in the nature of the people. Landes attributes the decisive factor to culture, but describes culture in such a way as to imply race.

“If we learn anything from the history of economic development, it is that culture makes all the difference,” he writes. “Witness the enterprise of expatriate minorities — the Chinese in East and Southeast Asia, Indians in East Africa, Lebanese in West Africa, Jews and Calvinists throughout much of Europe, and on and on. Yet culture, in the sense of the inner values and attitudes that guide a population, frightens scholars. It has a sulfuric odor of race and inheritance, an air of immutability.”

In the 2nd piece I think he is confusing governance and culture.

When a government imposes rules the people must obey or suffer the consequences.

RE: China - somewhere around 1400 AD they had the worlds largest navy with brilliant commanders. The Emperor shut it down because he didn't like foreign notions being brought back.

Imagine where the Chinese would be now if they had maintained the worlds largest navy for another six centuries.

No British Empire for sure. Chinese discover and settle the American west coast, etc.

Chinese have done well outside of China, because they were no longer in China and subject to its' rules.

V. The Wickedness of Creating Large Families


THE MOST serious evil of our times is that of encouraging the bringing into the world of large families. The most immoral practice of the day is breeding too many children. These statements may startle those who have never made a thorough investigation of the problem. They are, nevertheless, well considered, and the truth of them is abundantly borne out by an examination of facts and conditions which are part of everyday experience or observation.

Inspired by Clarice, part history, part remembrance, with links, and dedicated to Clarice who made me remember.

Born in 1953 I have vague memories of the earliest Memorial Day parades I attended. I do remember the size of the crowd of on-lookers and how long the parade took to conclude. It seemed like forever to a young child. Probably an hour and a half, or so. It started on Palisade Ave., in Englewood, the main business district, at the 1st World War Memorial. A roundabout where five streets intersected. Just a few yards from the Revolutionary War era "Liberty Pole." The original which stood at a tavern in those olden days was replaced by a steel pole that is still there. Yes, over two hundred years ago, the citizens of what became Englewood, were mostly patriots.

[As an aside] Gen. Washington, when he abandoned Ft. Lee, marched his troops west on present days Fort Lee Rd., than north on Grand Ave., west on Palisades Ave., NW on Liberty Rd. to the site of the present day Teaneck Armory, and then west on New Bridge Rd. to cross the New Bridge Landing over the Hackensack River, where he was able to hold off the British Troops that had landed, in force, more northerly at Closter Landing on the Hudson River.

http://www.bergencountyhistory.org/retreat/pages/map.html

I can't believe how long it took to find a map of the retreat. It's also in the "Book of Englewood" which I'm told my great-grandfather contributed to and I now see is digitized as the copyright expired.

https://archive.org/details/bookofenglewood02ster/page/2

That race for the New Bridge Landing was crucial. Below that bridge over the Hackensack River there is no crossing and Washington was on a peninsula. Below that bridge the Hackensack was too wide to cross, further south were the Meadowlands. Had Washington and his army not crossed that bridge first, the war would have been over.

The parade would march east up Palisade Ave, and then turn left, northerly, on Engle St., where I would view it. That being a short walk from our home nearby. The Parade concluded at Brookside Cemetery.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brookside_Cemetery_(Englewood,_New_Jersey)

Contrary to Wiki it covered the east and west sides of Engle St. and it was a subject of many adventures for me and my young friends, it being a short walk from our homes. We were too in awe of the whole thing to commit vandalism, but man, it made a great place to play hide and seek. If anyone got near your hidey hole, you simple burst out with a lot of noise and the already scared seeker would be paralyzed with fear.

Back to the parade, they always had machines of war in the parade. Tanks, jeeps, towed howitzers and all kinds of weird vehicles.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teaneck_Armory

Most of which were supplied by the Teaneck Armory, about a mile and a half away. For basketball fans it was the one time home of the New Jersey Americans, later known as the Nets.

So skip a few more years and I'm more cognizant of what's going on. Englewood had a large, say 20%, population of blacks. That was never an issue that I was aware of. Black people turned out as on-lookers and participants. If you served, you marched. There were two VFW posts and two American Legion posts. One white, one black of each. It was the times, but all marched. There were two Elks Clubs, one white, one black. The white one was fading, but the black one was growing. I'm very sorry to say that when a group of distinguished black men walked by with the banner of the B. P. O. E, somebody convinced me it stood for Black People of Englewood. Boy, was I gullible back then.

Skip another few years later and I participated as part of a Cub Scout group. I had a problem remembering my right from my left and had to mark both hands with a pen. One hand had an L, the other had an R. And I knew the skip-step move to sync up.

And then came the Vietnam War and the 1971 switch to a three day weekend and the parades went poof. It was the end of a common bonding era. Time to head off for a three day vacation or stay home for the Memorial Day sales.

Nowadays, traditional holidays are the cause of rhetorical fights. Back then they brought communities together to remind them all that America, with all its' unresolved faults, was the best country in the world. We all believed in Manifest Destiny and American Exceptionalism. Now leftists use these holidays to divide us and to impugn historical Americans for having 18th century values that 21st century leftists declare obscene in order to denigrate our nation's founding and present policy.

Somebody, MM, Hoyden, please re-post this later so it doesn't get lost out of the mainstream. Thanks.
