    AARP Studios?


    I dislike AARP for their liberal positions and mission creep.

    http://www.slideshare.net/tammygordon/aarp-studios-stories-that-matter-38380682

    . Objective To become a Social business within the next 5 years, by expanding the principles of social communication throughout the organization
    2. Integrate social media with broadcast content and apply the principles of social communication to both
    3. Principles of social communication Social is great content. Great content is social The best social ‘medium’ isn’t Facebook, YouTube or Twitter. It’s the audience Make the audience our medium, socialize with them, i.e. give them great content Successful social communication is about being social
    4. All content must be social
    5. If all content must be social, then don’t differentiate it or treat it differently
    6. Why this works
    7. Why this works Relevance In order for content to be social, it must be relevant to our audience
    8. Why this works Relevance In order for content to be social, it must be relevant to our audience Impact Only if it is relevant to our audience will it have impact
    9. Why this works Relevance In order for content to be social, it must be relevant to our audience Impact Only if it is relevant to our audience will it have impact Revenue Greater impact makes it easier to monetize our video content, which will in turn grow revenue
    10. = Internally: All content is viewed through a social lens. Social is no longer just a channel. Externally: Integrated, and shareable content. AARP behaving like a socially integrated business
    11. And eventually… Social content becomes sought after content
    12. How do we get there?
    13. STEP 1 Focus team on external communication STEP 2 Outsource some content creation and community management in order to create internal specialists
    14. STEP 1 Focus team on external communication STEP 2 Outsource some content creation and community management in order to create internal specialists STEP 3 Merge the broadcast & social teams to form one multi-disciplinary & cross-collaborative team
    15. AARP STUDIOS Stories that matter
    16. Social and broadcast are mutually interdependent.
    17. Collaboration is the mandate. Analytics are the driver
    18. Why Community Content?
    19. The content will be developed for communities. Communities are social, and communities share
    20. STEP 1 Focus the team on external communication STEP 2 Merge the broadcast & social teams to form one multi-disciplinary & cross-collaborative team STEP 3 Outsource content creation and community management STEP 4 Develop an overarching community content strategy
    21. The community content strategy will be developed with these guiding principles
    22. Community content strategy: #1 Reason for Being Determine what AARP community content stands for
    23. Condé Nast Specialized high quality content for sponsors
    24. Non-mainstream content
    25. “So much video online is shot purely to generate views as opposed to telling a story or conveying information - what we’re concentrated on is producing really insightful, intelligent video for a powerful, well-educated, affluent audience.” Insightful & intelligent content
    26. Community content strategy: #2 Audience Definition Focus efforts digitally on trying to reach multiple niche audiences instead of one broad audience
    27. Instead of targeting an age group target mindsets, interests or passion points
    28. ‘Instead of trying to create videos that have broad appeal, BuzzFeed drills down to very specific groups who will share at a high rate.’
    29. Community content strategy: #3 Quality VS Quantity Produce fewer pieces of content, but ones with legs
    30. Community content strategy: #4 Show, don’t tell Using insightful stories, show people AARP’s value instead of telling them
    31. Community content strategy: #5 Evergreen Content Perpetually relevant content, not news
    32. Community content strategy: #6 Shares, not views Everything AARP produces should be shared whether to entertain, inspire, or educate. It must be good enough for people to talk about

    that through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places.

    St. Thomas Aquinas speculates as to the truth behind this text in his commentary on Ephesians:

    The means through which the manifold wisdom of God is made known to [the angels] is designated by his saying “through the church.” We bring nothing to the table.............


    The convoluted logic whether Roman Catholic or Protestant is sometimes amazing. Note the word “speculates”, We are still fighting agnosticisms or “secret knowledge”

    I read that verse and think that the angels are watching what God is doing, not what the church is doing.

    SO, I’ve seen Jesus up close and personal in BOTH ROMAN catholic and Non Denominational services.


    My observation is that about as many Roman Catholics will be saved as protestants ————————meaning not very many.

    We are told many times to test what we hear, And you mentioned the real test ........

    1Jn 4:1 Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world.
    1Jn 4:2 This is how we know if they have the Spirit of God: If a person claiming to be a prophet acknowledges that Jesus Christ came in a real body, that person has the Spirit of God.

    ——————do they acknowledge Jesus and that he came in a human body.

    Regarding the “discussions” here, yes it frustrating but we are called to correct fellow believers and if we don’t, it is just as bad of sin and as teaching them to sin.

    This is working out our salvation “in fear and trembling”. So many we both have eyes and ears this morning.

    Here is a reference to the production of 200,000 autos by year end. It was a fed govt authorization.

    http://web.bryant.edu/~ehu/h364proj/fall_97/sandoval/index.htm

    With the collapse of Germany in 1945, the federal government authorized the production of 200,000 passenger cars. At the same time production limits were lifted, and the city of Detroit started to shift cars as quickly as possible in order to keep up with demand. Automobile manufacturers also ran into many problems. Technical problems specifically the retooling process led to delays in production and also labor problems were present. Despite all these problems assembly lines were moving at full speed. In 1947 the first post-war design was the Studebaker, this car made its dayview in many showrooms around the country.

    and here is the 47 Studebaker

    200,000 new autos for passengers expected by Jan 1. ----------------------------------- In general terms, no 1940’s automobiles were produced in 1943 or 1944. With that said, the auto industry claims there were 139 cars built in 1943 and 610 built in 1944. It could very well be that they used up the existing stock of vehicles and made more, but they were probably assembled from spare parts left over after the assembly lines shut down. It gets a little complicated getting an accurate count, for a few reasons: 1. Some of the 1941 and 1942 models that were left over before the freeze were taken by our military for staff cars, and were titled as 1943, 1944, and 1945 models. 2. War Department document TM-9-2800 from 1943 authorized building certain light and heavy cars for staff use, the light ones were Chevrolet, Ford, and Plymouth, while the heavy ones were Packard and Buick. Again, these were either leftover vehicles repainted for military use, or built with leftover parts. 3. Fred Crismon’s book U.S. Military Wheeled Vehicles (Crestline Series) says that Packard was building blackout versions of the Clipper “as late as 1943″ for the U.S. Army. Production started up again in 1945, although these automobiles were built for the 1946 model year. Most makes that were built were warmed over 1942 models for 1946, 1947 and 1948. For example, General Motors first postwar redesign was their 1949 line of automobiles http://1940s.org/history/on-the-homefront/auto-production/ ------------------------------------------------------------ Wikpedia lists no production figures for 1945 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Automobile_Production_Figures ---------------------------------------------------------- Ford got postwar production underway on July 3, 1945, the first automaker to do so http://auto.howstuffworks.com/1941-1948-ford-super-deluxe4.htm --------------------------------------------------------- interesting 1945 car list. http://carsplusplus.com/year/index.php?year=1945 -------------------------------------------------------- here is a list of 1945 cars for sale now. http://classiccars.com/listings/find/1945 ----------------------------------------------------- Here is another list of 1945 cars produced.

    Clearing WWII aerial mines[edit]

    Between 600,000 and 1,000,000 naval mines of all types were laid in World War II. Advancing military forces worked to clear mines from newly taken areas, but extensive minefields remained in place after the war. Air-dropped mines had an additional problem for mine sweeping operations: they were not meticulously charted. In Japan, much of the B-29 mine-laying work had been performed at high altitude, with the drifting on the wind of mines carried by parachute adding a randomizing factor to their placement. Generalized danger areas were identified, with only the quantity of mines given in detail. Mines used in Operation Starvation were supposed to be self-sterilizing, but the circuit did not always work. Clearing the mines from Japanese waters took so many years that the task was eventually given to the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force.[57]

    For the purpose of clearing all types of naval mines, the Royal Navy employed German crews and minesweepers from June 1945 to January 1948,[58] organised in the German Mine Sweeping Administration (GMSA), which consisted of 27,000 members of the former Kriegsmarine and 300 vessels.[59] Mine clearing was not always successful: a number of ships were damaged or sunk by mines after the war. Two such examples were the liberty ships Pierre Gibault which was scrapped after hitting a mine in a previously cleared area off the Greek island of Kythira in June 1945,[60] and Nathaniel Bacon which hit a minefield off Civitavecchia, Italy in December 1945, caught fire, was beached, and broke in two.[61]

    I always have an interest in Iwo Jima. Hadn’t thought that Iwo extended the range of the b-29’s. from the B 29 mining article.


    By now, B-29s sometimes returned to Iwo Jima rather than Tinian to extend their effective range to 3,675 miles and put all of Japan under a nearly complete blockade.

    From the article. Interesting to think that mining had a part in sinking the yamamota. ----------------------------------------------- Aerial photography revealed the extent of Japan’s unpreparedness and the immediate impact mining had on ship traffic. Mines closed the Shimonoseki Strait for almost two weeks and so restricted Japanese naval traffic that the only passable route was through the Bungo Strait--the Inland Sea’s southeastern exit. If ships attempted to sortie through this passage, they faced almost certain detection. Here, on April 6th, a B-29 sighted an Oklnawa-bound task force led by the battleship Yamato. The next day, carrier-based torpedo and dive bombers intercepted and sank Yamato with most of her escorts.

    B 29’s lay mines


    From the following which is a good read:

    http://www.hartshorn.us/Navy/MinesAway.pdf

    One example of a versatile aerial mine from World War II was the U.S. Navy’s Mark 25.16 The Army Air Forces laid many of these in 1944-45 and almost half of the mines laid in “Operation Starvation,” the mining of Japan’s home waters, were versions of this mine. Assembled, it weighed approximately 2,000 pounds, which included 1,250 pounds of explosive. The weapon looked much like a bomb with the exception of a half-slant shape to the nose (for improved underwater trajectory) and the parachute pack at the tail. After the mine left the aircraft a static line opened the parachute, which
    lessened the shock as the mine entered the water. The Mk. 25 could be dropped from any altitude above 200 feet, at a maximum speed of 230 miles per hour, and used in water depths of 16 to 150 feet. Once the mine settled to the bottom it armed itself according to pre-flight settings and awaited its prey. Different models featured unique firing mechanisms (for magnetic, acoustic, or pressure actuation), clock starters and delays, ship counters, and redundant safety features. The minefield planner could select the Mk. 25 (or a smaller mine, such as the 1,000 pound Mk. 26) with modifications tailored to the specific water depth, type of vessels, traffic frequency, and minesweeping capability.

    Lindbergh Goes Abroad to tour Europe


    Wartime Journal published in 1970:

    http://www.nytimes.com/books/98/09/27/specials/lindbergh-lost.html

    And when he traveled in Germany shortly after the Nazi surrender in May 1945, he wrote in his journal. “What the German has done to the Jew in Europe, we are doing to the Jap in the Pacific.”

    Now he says somethings in this that will invoke a strong response. But I don’t think I can argue with the following:

    “Your ask what my conclusions are, rereading my journals and looking back on World War II from the vantage point of quarter century in time? We won the war in a military sense; but in a broader sense it seems to me we lost it, for our Western civilization is less respected and secure than it was before.

    “In order to defeat Germany and Japan we supported the still greater menaces of Russia and China - which now confront us in a nuclear weapon era. The British empire has broken down with great suffering, bloodshed and confusion. France has had to give up her major colonies and turn to a mild dictatorship herself.”

    “Much of our Western culture was destroyed. We lost the genetic heredity formed through eons of many million lives. Meanwhile, the Soviets have dropped their Iron Curtain to screen off Eastern Europe, and an antagonistic Chinese Government threatens us in Asia.

    “More than a generation after the war’s end, our occupying armies still must occupy, and the world has not been made safe for democracy and freedom. On the contrary, our own system democratic government is being challenged by that greatest of dangers to any government - internal coordinating and unrest.

    “It is alarmingly possible that World War II marks the beginning of our Western civilization’s breakdown...”

    It is generally accepted that the Los Alamos team was having trouble obtaining the amount of uranium needed for a bomb. [Goldberg] Some authors believe that the uranium on U-234 was used by the Americans to bomb Japan. Lt. Col. John Lansdale Jr. who worked with the Manhattan Project as a security officer an was responsible for tracking uranium. He says the German uranium was used to build the bombs dropped on Japoan.


    a very interesting statement. Without this size of bomb dropped would have been smaller or only one bomb?

    From the above article:

    The cargo included air defense radars and jet engine equioment as well as German technical experts. In addition there were 80 gold-lined cylinders containing 560 kilograms of uranium oxide marked “For the Japanese Army”. There is very limited cargo space even aboard this cargo U-boat. Thus only items of the highest priority would have been loaded. The only pupose for the uranium oxide given the state of Japanese nuclear research would have been a dirty bomb. Also aboard were two Japanese officer—Air Force Colonel Genzo Shosi, an engineer, and Navy Captain Hideo Tomonaga. The U-234 was informed of Hitler’s suicide (May 1). Naval Highcommand ordered all German submarines to observe a ceasefire (May 4). The order to surrender was then given (May 8). The captain of the U-234 at this time arrested the Japanese officers who subsequently attempted suiside with sleeping pills. The German officers then discussed if they should surrender or proceed to Japan. They decide to surrender and to kill the Japanese who had botched their suiside attempt. This meant that they could not talk to the Americans about the purpose of the uranium oxide. Their bodies were discaded at sea. The captain then contacted naval authjorities in Halifax to arrange a surrender. Finally he decided to surrender to the Americans. The USS Sumter escorted the U-234 to Portsmouth. The U-234 was interned at Portsmouth (May 19). There the Americans learned for the first time that radio-active uranium oxide was aboard. What the Americans did not know was if other U-boats had gotten through to Japan with uranium an nuclear technology. This may have influenced the subsequent American decession to use the bomb on Japan. The nature of the uranium and disposition by the U.S. Navy is shrouded in mystery. Using lead contianers with gold lining suggests it was very high grade enriched uranium, perhaps U235. [Hydrick, p.7.] As far as I know, the Government has never released the level of enrichment which would provide an insight into the German atomic program. It is generally accepted that the Los Alamos team was having trouble obtaining the amount of uranium needed for a bomb. [Goldberg] Some authors believe that the uranium on U-234 was used by the Americans to bomb Japan. Lt. Col. John Lansdale Jr. who worked with the Manhattan Project as a security officer an was responsible for tracking uranium. He says the German uranium was used to build the bombs dropped on Japoan. [Broad] Some authors also wonder about the “infrared proximity fuse” and wether it was actually a fuse connected with the atomic program. Many of these quetions are still unanswered. But the fact thsat the Germans had enrched uranium strongly suggests thsat they had made more progress in building a bomb than is recognized by most authors. And it raised the questions about the Japanese atomic bomb program and the extent of cooperation between the Axis allies.

    A note of encouragement. When I was in Mongolia after the demise of USSR, after about 70 years of suppression, one of the first things they did was to rediscover their heritage. Which in their case was Genghis Kahn and Buddhism.

    In the OT are many similar stories.

    Was our potential power that obscure, or were the Axis powers simply crazy?


    I think most participants thought it would be a negotiated peace with some gain in territory like WWI. They did not expect unconditional surrender.......................

    I don’t understand how business will think they will get ahead if there are no jobs no one can buy their products? Law of supply and demand right?


    No, more like musical chairs. He knows someone will not get a chair, but thinks that it will be someone else.

    But it is common in business. If you DON’T adopt the tech, you are out of business, if you DO you MIGHT be out of business.

    A decline in traditional jobs could lead to shrinking markets for small businesses, said Ford. “We need consumers out there who will buy what is created by the economy,” he said

    The point is that to centralize government is not to make things overall, better. Overall it makes things worse.


    If you have a good king, it works, but what are the chances of that.

    Point being there is no guarantee with any type of government with the nature of man being what it is.............

    Yes it was. Unequivocally the US of 1860 was an extremely racist place.


    I’ve been to Africa and seen real racism and tribalism. My interpreter would tell me as we passed through villages that “those people” use to be his ancestors slaves.

    There isn’t one African who wouldn’t give their right arm to come to America.

    Does anyone know how much CO2 in the atmosphere is too much? How much is too little? Where such measurements should occur and why?


    From my botany study days, plants are co2 starved. In fact some plants use a second more energy required method to capture the co2 they need.
