The banana was introduced to the United States as a luxury item

Everyone is entitled to their own food preferences, but my favorite fruit, by far, is the banana. It comes with its own biodegradable packaging, it’s easy on the stomach, and he even fiber healthy digestive tract.

Today, bananas can be purchased at any grocery store, by the beam, often for just a few dollars. In fact, they are so ubiquitous in the American diet today we have a popular bread recipe that calls for unused bananas, overripe.

But it was not always so. The banana, which has its roots in the rainforests of Southeast Asia and has even been cultivated as early as 1000 BC, was an unknown exotic fruit of the American people. Until the Universal Exhibition of 1876 in Philadelphia.

How Cartoons Brainwashed Us With Jewish Stereotypes – The Power of Propaganda

Hostility and discrimination against Jews as a religious and racial groups has existed since before the middle ages – but to this day anti-Semitism still found a foothold among hate groups. Thousands of years. HOW THE HELL IS THIS STILL AROUND IDEAS?!

In fact, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), according to a recent NBC News, said that the number of anti-Semitic incidents so far in 2019 is almost as high as the first six months of 2018.

The worst year for anti-Semitic acts in the United States since the ADL started counting three decades ago was 2017. The group documented nearly 2,000 cases of assault, vandalism, bomb threats and other horrific incidents, including “United right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

It was in protest of hate groups is that there are a number of signs that read While the main races still weak chin, pale, and “Jews Not Will Change Us.” – baby obviously secretly big – as they have ever been, sentiment discriminatory they began long , with a large number of ideas of anti-Semitism to take root in the mid-1800s as American Jews began to acquire land and opened bank.

That’s when the white establishment (politicians) who spread anti-Jewish sentiment through propaganda about the “takeover” and set the law in motion which affected only Jewish-run bank. These messages found their way into early cartoons, perpetuating stereotypes that were brought to life in the media that just a few years earlier.

The latest episode of Brainwashed By Toons explore the long history of ideas in animation and cartoons to educate and encourage healthy, skeptical approach to the media.

The time the US Navy dropped a toilet on the Viet Cong during the Vietnam war

A toilet was broken at the USS Midway and was set to be thrown overboard, but the pilots recovered to be abandoned at the pound 6 millionth of explosives to be dropped on the enemy in the theater!

Due to the low supply bomb, it was not too unusual for the space is open on the wing, so the VA-25 drivers decided to drop something new on ‘enemy. The pilot of the Sky Raider A-1, which made the “strike” CDR Clarence Stoddard, was unfortunately killed in 1966 later.

Of course, the Wandering soul operation seems to be even stranger.

The US Navy at the Gamekeeper operation, intercepting traffic Viet Cong in the Mekong Delta of South Vietnam, was playing strange funeral prayers in Vietnamese and distorted voices, citing the belief that those who die outside of his homeland is condemned to walk the earth as a living dead. The speakers use mounted gun and choppers, they hoped to frighten the superstitious enemy combatants. For what success this unknown HAD.

Switzerland can survive a nuclear war – Taking civil defense seriously

For most of us, the best we can hope for in a nuclear war must be taken in the first wave of attacks rather than having to spend our days riding on the back of a motorcycle with a chain around by the neck. In some cases, the Chosen Few that are deemed necessary to the survival of humanity could be able to score a golden ticket in a fallout shelter controlled by the government, while the rest of us on the surface learn to live with radiation poisoning. The majority of the population will likely during a nuclear war. Unless you happen to have Swiss citizenship.

Unlike other countries that might be at the receiving end of nuclear weapons, Switzerland has the ability to place its entire population in a series of shelters fallout built at great cost by the government. The Swiss legalized their nuclear paranoia. Sections 45 and 46 of the Swiss Federal Law and Civil Protection requires every private building built a bomb shelter capable of supporting all residents. Switzerland is in the paradoxical position where it could win a nuclear war without possessing nuclear weapons. After the fallout fades and the Swiss out of their bunkers, the world will be powerless to stop them.

Everyone in Switzerland has access to a good anti-explosion nuclear bunker with filtered air NBC. Even small ordinary houses are often equipped with shelters in reinforced concrete blast seized by thick blast doors 8 inches that weighs about 1 ton. The minimum standard is 15 PSI or for supporting a mass of 1 megaton burst nuke as close to 1.6 miles. Some Swiss bunkers designed to withstand 45psi, or nuke same size, but as close as 1 mile away. In reality, these bunkers would likely collapse if not always at distances a little closer to nuclear weapons.

Switzerland also has a large part of its protected underground infrastructure, including a lot of breath protected underground hospitals. While the radiation from nuclear fallout considerably disintegrate in the first weeks after a nuclear attack, if nuclear power plants were affected directly, or went into crisis with their radioactive long-lived isotopes that contaminate the surrounding areas, then this would be a problem for decades to come. Surviving is one thing, but the long-term survival is another for the first month or two after a massive nuclear attack.

Despite the hype that nuclear winter would be a 100% certainty in a nuclear war, and although people seem passionate about their faith or lack of it, the effect of winter, it not until nuclear weapons were used that we ‘d know one way or the other for some, to settle the debate. Although little is revealed on nuke in 2056 have been detonated on Earth as tests, some massive and one of 50 megatons (The Tsar Bomba Russian.) No products a nuclear winter effect but none of the tests were performed on flammable towns and detonations were distributed over the years, not all at once, or a few hours of each other.

During the Gulf War, the same scientists who put forward the theory of nuclear winter of origin (the TTAPS group) said that when the Iraqi army in retreat located 700 burning oil fields it would cause effect like nuclear winter. But not as winter really happened. Different soot, etc., but it indicates that the computer models, etc. can not rely on them to predict these things. Too many unknowns and variables are involved. If a decade or longer nuclear winter does occur, then we indeed all be effectively screwed. Even 1,000 nuclear bombs used could not be a nuclear winter occur, especially as our nuclear weapons are generally much “smaller” than the “monster” megaton nuclear weapons that were generally available in the good old days of the cold War.

If we were “lucky” and WW3 out to be mostly conventional warfare, but with a more limited use of nuclear weapons, probably towards the end of the conflict, then that would improve the long theory of nuclear winter much less likely to occur. Without long everybody nuclear winter in Switzerland should have a better chance of survival, even in places like the United States, good shelter individual benefits might be really useful and save lives as might keep stored food, water and supplies for at least several weeks, along the lines of the Swiss.

EMP is another unknown factor. If specialized nuclear EMP weapons designed to maximize the EMP effect explode over the Earth, say 100 miles above, a large part of our electronics and electrical networks could be severely damaged. Switzerland should be better prepared, but they would not be immune from the chaos that a world without electricity network and electronic lead. Now imagine living if no electricity / electronics not mean no running water, no computers, no radio / TV, no bank or cash point, pumps for cars to run, and perhaps many modern vehicles, trucks, and trains, etc., do not work anyway because of their systems EMP damage electronics and control management engine without working gas (petrol). Much of the electrical and electronic products in Switzerland will not be protected from EMP either.

How could “rapper” 6ix9ine be able to hide in witness protection

Ultimately the protection of witnesses is a voluntary program and Tekashi must decide whether to go this route. Remember it has a daughter and a mother and siblings who probably still live in Brooklyn, to be covered by Nine Trey and any other number of unsavory individuals.

At the end of the day when he will be targeted by a number of gangs across the United States, and will be constantly followed by TMZ and other media do not care if they give away its location, my best bet is -it just moves to a beautiful city in New Jersey near New York and lives in a building with a doorman, and did his best to protect his family.

Ultimately these gangs are not the Cosa Nostra, and their scope and resources are quite limited. We live in a fast food culture medium and there are strangely much of his fan base that does not care about his snitching, and I just want him to go back to trolling and generally making Instagram entertaining as was when he was out. Remember that it is mostly white children time in the suburbs anyway going to his concerts and consumption of content.

  • The majority of people will testify against will still be in jail when he comes out – This means that people with the most to gain will be in the worst position to hurt him.
  • It will take some of the tattoos removed or altered – Everyone is looking to follow in his tattoos will be disappointed because they different or missing.
  • While in prison, he would be encouraged to take courses and learn not to be a gangster – If you change who you are, you can become almost invisible to people looking for who you were.
  • The program relocate him in an area of ​​the country that has enough Latinos where it will not stand out, but not so much where it will be instantly recognized – So Los Angeles New York and Houston are out. A dozen small towns, especially where it has never been before.

Why the Cold War is called “cold” – Two superpowers never took direct military action against each other

During the war, there are usually physical fighting between warring countries. However, during this period of history, the United States and the armed forces of the Soviet Union has never met on the battlefield.

The two countries have been constantly react to the actions of the other though. This included espionage, a military weapons competition, industrial and technological developments, and even the moon race. The two countries have spent vast sums of money on defense, nuclear weapons, and support for third wars.

Because both countries are beaten them directly, it was called a “cold” war means that there was no physical fight.

Opponents of the Cold War often provide economic or military aid, such as weapons, tactical support and military advisers, to nations less involved in conflicts with the opposing country.

There were a number of armed conflicts with the two main players on opposite sides – the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Soviet war in Afghanistan. Arab Israeli wars. Various comes on in Africa. The Indo-Pakistani War.

There was also the Cuban Missile Crisis of which failed in the US and actually shot the USSR to another.

So yes, there was a lot of fighting. But because of nuclear deterrence on both sides have been careful to avoid direct confrontation, fighting by proxy. The United States to suffer about 140,000 victims of the Korean War and about 360 000 injured in the Vietnam war. The Soviets suffered 68,000 casualties in Afghanistan. These figures, although overshadowed by WW2 are nothing to sneeze at either.
