The First World War battle of the Somme continues, to this day, to fascinate and appal in equal measures. Much has been written about the ground war the first day of which saw the greatest number of British casualties than had occurred before in the entire history of the British Army… 19,240 were dead and 38,230 injured. The fighting over a 16 mile front lasted almost 5 months, after which the Allied troops had advanced about 6 miles. The butchers bill of casualties was horrendous. The combined Commonwealth countries number reached nearly 60,000 but was dwarfed by the United Kingdom's casualty number of over 350,000. The battle opened on the 1st of July 1916 with a massed explosion that ranks amongst the largest non nuclear explosions in history and was then considered the loudest human made sound to date, audible beyond London 160 miles away.  It was witnessed by an 18 year old RFC pilot.     The mine under Hawthorn Ridge   Then the dust cleared and we saw the two white eyes of the craters   Going over the top   The la Boisselle mine crater now and then.   Pip's landing   The Fokker Eindecker   Bristol Fighters   A dogfight   The battlefield     Images under Creative Commons licence with thanks to British First World War Air Service Photo Section, Ernest Brooks, Henry Armytage Sanders, H.

So maybe put down that office coffee cup and use some hand sanitizer after you push that elevator button before we discuss this phenomenon that began in the 1920's but really came into it's own during World War II, We discuss the first literary appearance of the gremlin in 1938 as well as Roald Dahl's book about them as released by Walt Disney in 1943. We discuss the life of World War II pilots as well as their status among WWII soldiers (here's a hint, basically they were the Jedi Masters/Sith Lords of WWII depending on whether they worked for the Allies of the Axis). We discuss how the RAF addressed worries about the strange creatures, how they were seen by pilots as well as those working in Airplane factories and how the creatures sabotaged some pilots while appearing to help others and how they appeared to both Allied pilots as well as their foes. Then, of course, we discuss their appearances in pop culture and discuss whether there is anything to worry about while you are flying to Grandma's or Vegas or wherever you go on vacation, in this folklore heavy episode!

The Japanese city of Nagasaki is probably best known for being the target of the world's second-ever nuclear attack in August 1945. Yet the city was also home to hundreds of Allied prisoners of war, forcibly put to work to support the Japanese war economy. In conversation with Spencer Mizen, John Willis shares the incredible – and largely forgotten – story of the PoWs who had survived the brutal camps of the far east, were transported to the Japanese mainland on so-called hell-ships and were later witnesses to a bomb that would help bring the Second World War to a conclusion.

Admiral McRaven was the commander of U.S. Special Operations Command during which time he led a force of 69,000 men and women and was responsible for conducting counter-terrorism operations worldwide. McRaven also is a recognized national authority on U.S. foreign policy and has advised presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama and other U.S. leaders on defense issues. Served as the primary author of the President's first National Strategy for Combating Terrorism Drafted and was the primary author of the National Security Presidential Directive-12 (U.S. Hostage Policy) Drafted the counter-terrorism policy for President George W. Bush's National Security Strategy McRaven's military legacy goes beyond strategy and warfare. As commander of U.S. Special Operations Command, McRaven spearheaded the creation of the Preservation of the Force & Family initiative to ensure the mental, spiritual and physical well-being of those who serve, as well as their families. His wife, Georgeann, has dedicated much of her career to playing a leadership role with military families and wounded warriors. In Sea Stories, which begins in the early 1960' in France, where Allied officers and their wives gathered to have drinks and tell stories about their adventures during World War II -- is where Admiral McRaven learned from the greatest generation. Sea Stories is an in-depth look back on one man's incredible life, where he went to BUDS to become a Navy Seal, to working in the Middle East, to being injured in a parachuting accident, and becoming a very important piece in the anti-terrorism agenda after 9/11. Admiral McRAven played a major part in American military history, having been involved in some of the most famous missions in recent memory, including the capture of Saddam Hussein, the rescue of Captain Richard Phillips, and the raid to kill Osama bin Laden. Instead of highlighting specific adventures and operations that Admiral McRaven was a part of, I am going to read the last chapter of the book, titled The Final Salute. This chapter summarizes so much goodness and honor not only as a high ranking officer in the US Military, but what a man can do when he is driven by values that were instilled in him as a child.

Today we're interviewing Sew Chang Chew, Head of R and D at Hybrid Dairy Alliance, a new business that focuses on dairy manufacturing. Welcome to Malaysia! This is the first interview I did hours after I landed. I actually met Sew 9 years ago at IFT when our colleges were both competing in a product development competition. I believe it was Developing Solutions for Developing Countries. Sew has a lot to say about the food industry in Malaysia and gives a good introduction to what the food is really about. Not just industry, but he describes food really well. I think what's great to take away from this interview is the point of view. What's amazing about traveling to all of these countries and interviewing everyone is you get to see not only the differences but the similarities between what's going on and Sew highlights a lot of challenges that I feel I've faced in my career. You're also going to get a lot of practical advice! Sew is essentially a manager and gives some good tips on how to teach and motivate your employees! His advice is very simple, and methodical. I never realized how similar I was with Sew, we both have worked many jobs, around 2-year stints, and he himself traveled the world.

Does anyone honor our World War II heroes anymore? In this week's Team Never Quit Podcast, Marcus has a very fascinating guest – Rishi Sharma – who has been on a mission to interview at least one WWII combat veteran every single day until the last one passes away, since the age of 19. To date, he has interviewed over 1,700 WWII combat veterans, bringing their personal and military lives to the forefront, so future generations can learn to appreciate the lives they had and the sacrifices they made, allowing us to know them and be grateful for the life we have because of it. Those men went in as ordinary boys in extraordinary circumstances and came out as men. In this episode you will hear: I have always been interested in WWII. These men are my heroes. I would go to India as a child and I would observe the contrast between life there and in Southern California. It's because of bloodshed and sacrifice that the U.S. has become what it is. Seldom have I met veterans who come home from the war and do nothing. They travel, help people, and do things out of the ordinary because they feel like they've got a second chance and they're not gonna waste it. Veterans have such a sense of humor. I meet real Americans, telling real stories. This is everything to me. Veterans do things for no other reason than that it's the right thing to do.  They have every reason to be angry at the world and they're not. One of the first Iwo Jima veterans I interviewed turned 19 on the ship to Iwo Jima, and everyone in his platoon called him “old man.” That's how young our WWII soldiers were. During the Warsaw Uprising girls and boys were on the same level. A woman I interviewed saw as much combat as some hardened combat veterans at the age of 15. One D-Day Veteran said he could clearly remember the color of his underwear that day. He said they were brown. I told my parents I'd be gone for a couple of months, and I haven't been back in 5 years. I'm really scared for a world without World War II veterans because that would leave us without a moral compass. I have conducted over 1,700 interviews, gleaning that kind of wisdom.

The nations of the earth, he concluded, or at least the enlightened part of them, were moving inevitably toward a condition of social equality that in the world of politics was taking the form of democracy. This new kind of polity was rising on the ruins of the old, hierarchical societies, and the young republic was the clearest example of it. Previous visitors from overseas had concentrated on the minutiae of daily American life, but Tocqueville was after bigger game. He wanted to tease out the broad implications of increasing social equality and democracy rather than focus on the details that were bound to differ from one nation to another. These implications then would have the widest possible relevance to the various societies of the emerging modern world. This new dispensation, Tocqueville realized, was full of both promise and peril, and he devoted himself to transmitting this balanced assessment to his European contemporaries. The book that resulted, Democracy in America, has been called the "greatest work ever written about one country by a citizen of another." Because his conclusions were so general and of such wide application his book appropriately addressed the Americans of his own time, his fellow citizens in France still trying to come to terms with the modern world, and, not least, speaks to our own distracted society today, the uneasy inheritor of the raw republic in whose image he saw the future.

Invention of the movie camera offered a broad and diverse tool for artists to express their own interpretation of nature and life around them. Camera became another tool, a "brush" for artists to create moving images which projected their own aesthetic principles and perceptions. There will be a presentation of early cinema from France, Soviet Union, England and the United States. Early films by the Lumiere Brothers to Andy Warhol and how through ages, cinema has evolved from a vehicle to tell a story or document everyday life, to a tool expressing an individual artist's personal vision. Through the sessions of the lectures there will be an ongoing discussion about the goal for Experimental Films, which is to place the viewer in a more active and more thoughtful relationship to the film, which will be discussed. The 6 sessions will be an opportunity for the participants to understand this particular form of cinema and the various expressions and theorizations from various artists. The sessions will be coordinated with projections of stills from movies and at the end of each session there will be screening of a film, and an open discussion by the participants. During the entire sessions of the courses, informal and open-minded discussions of opinions will be encouraged.

The two plays are often called "festive" comedies because each commemorates a significant day marked by popular license in the Elizabethan calendar. Twelfth Night refers to the last night of the twelve days of Christmas, and in spite of its religious origin it was a thoroughly secular celebration. A Midsummer Night's Dream takes its title from the evening before midsummer day, the summer solstice and the longest day of the year, when the prospect of warmth and lengthening days inspired much misbehavior. If time permits, we'll also read Troilus and Cressida, one of Shakespeare's so-called "problem plays," which contain both tragic and comic elements and thus resist easy placement in the canon.

HERE is the full episode. It was a situation for despair, but there was no alternative but to keep one's nerve.—Colonel Heinz-Gunther Guderian, a Panzer commander facing the Allied invaders on D-dayIf you play Russian Roulette by spinning a six-shot revolver's cylinder using one bullet, your chance of dying is one in six. If you play Covid vax roulette, your chance of dying or being mortally wounded is about one in 200. The following is how to calculate your odds.This is derived from Craig Paardekooper's Covid vaccine VAERS database analysis. HERE is the video showing his graphs and explanations.SUBSTACK LINKVAERS, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, is the US government database that records the vaccine adverse events (AEs) reported by doctors and others. It is an incomplete but immense sample that lists the batches or “lots” for each company in the order they appeared. It also shows AEs by lot number and date of occurrence. The data is primarily from the USA."Hot lot" is a research phrase that the vax makers wish you would never hear. The original meaning was a defective product, such as baby spinach recalled for salmonella contamination. To understand what is happening with the Covid vaccine, imagine the food companies trying different doses of salmonella to determine how much damage they would cause. Paardekooper's analysis is robust evidence that the Pharma companies did precisely that. They used us like lab rates to test their poisons. He analyzed the Covid jab harms recorded by VAERS and created the charts below, and I copied them from his video. This provides overwhelming evidence that the three manufacturers coordinated dose-response experiments to measure the toxicity and deaths from the different batches of their drugs. Controls without the poisons were likely used as well.The odds of the results described below happening by chance alone seem nonexistent, but do not take my word for it. Look at the following summary, the references, and the videos.The entire study is shown in the first slide below. The horizontal axis is time. Each blue dot is a manufacturing batch or lot that includes thousands of bottles with the same serial number. The higher on the vertical axis a blue dot appears the more deaths and other AEs were reported for the lot. The experiment was run over most of 2021.Support the show

For our first Wolfgang Peterson film, we decided to cover what is often touted as the best submarine film ever, and one that is on most people's Top Ten War Film lists. Starring a young Jürgen Prochnow as the Captain of U-96 and a cast of mostly unknown actors as his crew, this is the thrilling story of one German submarine crew in the Battle of the Atlantic, stalking Allied cargo and military ships in an effort to reduce their enemies' combat effectiveness and disrupt their supply chains. Based on the experiences of author Lothar G. Buchheim, the film uses a combination of models and very accurate moving sets to really make you feel the claustrophobia and descent into hell that these submariners experienced in a way that does not glorify war, but instead makes us ponder its cost. *We watched the 1997 Director's Cut (208 minutes), available streaming on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/.../B00BZBPB98/ref=atvdpsharecur Next Episode: Last of the Mohicans (1992) Feel free to contact us with any questions or comments!

Generals, dictators, and despots have tried to rule the world. Their capital cities were monumental and impressive. King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon built one of the designated Seven Wonders of the World, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. The historian Herodotus wrote, “In addition to its size, Babylon surpasses in splendor any city in the known world.” The Bible documents the King's great pride and boasting over his accomplishments. The prophet Daniel had warned the king to humble himself. “At the end of the twelve months he [King Nebuchadnezzar] was walking about the royal palace of Babylon. The king spoke, saying, ‘Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for a royal dwelling by my mighty power and for the honor of my majesty?'” (Daniel 4:29-30). God punished King Nebuchadnezzar, who finally learned his lesson: “Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and extol and honor the King of heaven, all of whose works are truth, and His ways justice. And those who walk in pride He is able to put down.” (Daniel 4:37). The Nazi dictator, Adolph Hitler, in his plan to rule the world, envisioned a world capital to last a thousand years. Albert Speer, Hitler's architect for the future city, planned a Grand Hall next to the Reichstag that “would have been the largest enclosed space in the world, with a dome 16 times larger than that of St Peter's in Rome” according to HistoryToday.com. (“Germania: Hitler's Dream Capital”) Of course, Hitler fell before the Allied armies in World War II. Bible prophecy reveals that another great dictator, called the “Beast” in the book of Revelation, will desire to rule the world and establish his own capital. As it tells us in Revelation 13:7, “And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation.” The good news is that the coming King of kings will conquer and destroy this coming Beast power (Revelation 17:14) and Jesus Christ will establish a righteous world capital city. What city will become the capital of the world? In spite of today's conflicts, Jerusalem in Israel will soon become the glorious capital of the world. Does that sound impossible?

From D-day, when German guns atop Pointe du Hoc threatened the Allied landings and the men of Dog Company scaled the sheer 90-foot cliffs to destroy them; to the slopes of Hill 400, in Germany's Hürtgen Forest, where the Rangers launched a desperate bayonet charge across an open field; to a "quiet" section of the Ardennes, where Dog Company suddenly found itself on the tip of the spear at the Battle of the Bulge; the men of Dog Company made the difference.

Another whopper of a topic that could not be more action packed. WW2. Going over the war in Europe today - as much as we can in roughly three hours. The scale of WW2.... so massive.  Over sixty million people died. OVER sixty MILLION. More people killed in less than a decade than all the people killed in two centuries of Mongol invasions. On numerous occasions, over 100,000 people would die in a single DAY. And it could have been so much worse had not the Allied powers defeated the primary Axis Powers of Germany, Japan, and Italy. Forgive my mispronunciations and focus on the enormity of this war in today's we are lucky to be living in a (mostly) free world right now, edition, of Timesuck.   Bad Magic Giving Tree Info: Starting Monday  November 21st at 12:00 Noon PT, we will be accepting applications for this season's giving tree on our website: badmagicmerch.com Only the first fifty applicants will be accepted!
