    Military Monday with John D. Gresham With Author RADM Dave Oliver, USN (Ret.)

    in Lifestyle

    Of all the human qualities that are desired by people here in America and around the world right now, there can be little doubt or question that leadership is at the top of that list. Diluted by decades of indifference and mediocrity since the days of the "Greatest Generation" that fought in World War II, leadership as become a quality as rare as 100-carat diamonds and honest politicians. Nevertheless, those of us with long memories do recall touchstone individuals who not only made a difference in their time, but changed the very world they were part of forever. One of these was a somewhat gnomish and often disliked naval officer who created a whole new technology and era literally through the force of his own will: Adm. Hyman G. Rickover, USN.


    Today, Rickover remains something of an enigma to military historians and analysts almost 3 decades after his death. Arguably one of the most brilliant and powerful naval officers of his day, he never commanded great ships and fleets in battle. Able to make other officers and politicians sweat and fear for their professional lives, his actual job for most of his career was to build engines for submarines and surface ships. And while his nuclear engines changed the history of the world, at no time did he ever command a ship powered by one. To learn more about this important figure in U.S. history, join author, historian, journalist, game designer, and documentary filmmaker John D. Gresham (@Greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM EDT. His guest this week will be U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNI_Books) author and career submariner RADM Dave Oliver, USN (Ret.). Oliver is the author of the new book AGAINST THE TIDE, a biographical study of Rickover and his unique leadership and management styles.

    Humans in the Loop: Germanwings 9525 & the Future of Autonomous Transportation

    in Technology

    Hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon resume their discussion from last week about self-driving cars in light of the tragic news about Germanwings flight 9525. 


    Statistics show that pilot error has consistently caused between 50% and 60% of all airplane crashes over the decades. Deliberate sabotage accounts for another 3% to 10% annually. Then there's "other human error" accounting for another 6%. Large portions of the process of controlling a commercial aircraft have already been successfully automated. As with  self-driving cars: fully self-flying airplanes could be substantially less than perfect and yet still out-perform humans by a signficant margin. 


    Is it time for the switch? How hard (or easy) will it be?

Alexandra became aware of the current geoengineering program approximately 3 years ago. She began devoting all of her time and energy to analysis and research of all aspects of geoengineering.

Freeland is also the author of Sub Rosa America, about the “deep politics" behind the downfall of the United States since John F. Kennedy's assassination.


    Saturday's show will start with the basics of the global chemtrails/geoengineering spray program, what it is, how it is being carried out, and what it is doing to our health and to the health of the whole biosphere of planet Earth, including the destruction of normal climate patterns. We will also look at what the purposes of this program may be, who is doing it, how and why it is a threat to our survival and what can be done to stop this massive crime against humanity, going on right before our eyes.

    The Dutch Safety Board (DSB), which is investigating the cause of the crash, responded to reports released earlier by Netherlands broadcaster RTL alleging that the flight MH17 was downed by the Buk anti-aircraft missile system.I spoke on this tragic event many times and I believe,that airliner was shot down by a Ukrain fighter jet.The Ukrainian government has already lied numerous times about the events in this civil war.


    And my concern is this is a flash point for a WWIII type confortation,which could cost massive lost of lives and permanent damage to the enviroment.Tonight we'll give you the latest update,plus the news of the day.

    $65,000,000 for a New Private Jet, Creflo Dollar? Negro, Please

    in Social Networking

    Apparently, the right reverend was traveling on his old private jet when the aircraft experienced engine failure. Fortunately, the pilot was able to land safely without any injuries or fatalities, but the incident was so frightening, Dollar felt compelled to reach out to his flock.


    His G650 plea reads, partially, as follows:


    We are asking members, partners and supporters of this ministry to assist in the undertaking of an initiative called Project G650. The mission of Project G650 is to acquire a Gulfstream G650 airplane so that Pastors Creflo and Taffi and World Changers Church International can continue to blanket the globe with the Gospel of grace. We are believing for 200,000 people to give contributions of 300 US dollars or more to turn this dream into a reality—and allow us to retire the aircraft that served us well for many years.
