    Military Monday Replay with John D. Gresham and Author Al Nofi

    in History

    Because of the cancellation by this week's planned guest, we will be replaying last week's episode of Military Monday with author Al Nofi talking about his book, TO TRAIN THE FLEET FOR WAR:


    Question: How do you take a Navy from a force structure of just a handful of wooden cruisers to the most powerful fleet in history in just two generations? Because this is exactly what happened within the United States Navy (USN) in the late 1800s in the first half of the 20th century. Along with obvious answers like having the necessary resources and industrial infrastructure, there is the question of the people who manned it. One of the keys in the development of the USN's training, tactics, and fleet doctrine were 21 "Fleet Problens," run between 1923 and 1940. Fleet Problems were a series of full-scale fleet exercises, designed to explore and experiment new ideas for the US fleet, while providing officers and crews with a chance to operate under simulated battle conditions for extended periods of time.


    To learn more about the USN's Fleet Problems prior to World War II, tune into this week's edition of Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)). Author, historian, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and host John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) has invited  Government Printing Office author Al Nofi to discuss his book, TO THE FLEET FOR WAR. Considered an "instant classic" within the Naval history genre, Nofi's book describes in intimate detail, the various Fleet Problems, how they were run and adjudicated, and lessons learned derived from the exercises that became the basis for the USN's World War II doctrine.

    Military Monday with John D. Gresham with Dr. Allen Benson and Al Nofi

    in Military

    Nowhere in the history of the United States, has there ever been a greater master of the combat art of seapower then Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz, USN. Assigned as Commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet (CINCPAC) in the darkest days following Pearl Harbor, Adm. Nimitz brought to his command a rare strategic genius, a genuine respect for the dignity of individuals, and an unusual sense for assessing the value of people, places, platforms and actions. Universally revered by his peers, subordinates, and even enemies, Chester Nimitz remains a towering figure in the history of the U.S. Navy and America as a nation.


     During his tenure commanding CINCPAC, Adm. Nimitz had his staff construct and maintain a daily log of his activities, thoughts, ideas and the days events. Uniquely transparent with regards to the day-to-day events of the Great Pacific War, the log became known as the “Nimitz Graybook." Classified for years after the end of the war in the Pacific, access to the Graybook has been limited to historians and researchers at selected sites, greatly constraining it's worth to authors and writers who might benefit from its unique insights and observations. So it was with genuine excitement that news of a newly curated digital version of the Nimitz Gradebook being released to the public earlier this year was received. And that excitement was more than justified.


     To learn more about Adm. Nimitz and the Graybook, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday at @Writestream) at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guests this week will be U.S. Naval War College librarian and curator Dr. Allen Benson, along with historian and author Al Nofi. Dr. Benson is a member of of the team that produced the newly curated version of the Graybook, while Mr. Nofi is a historian with expertise on Adm. Nimitz. Please listen, call in, and enjoy a great hour of American history!

    ¿Estamos siguiendo al Cordero? (pte 2)

    in The Bible

    Religosamente, un cordero representaba inocencia, pureza, y mansedumbre. Filosofías y religiones enteras han sido desarolladas trás del simbolismo de un cordero.   ¿Qué significa segir al Cordero?  ¿Cuales son los requisitos?  ¿Se trata de volver a una granja?  ¿Se trata de seguir a una nueva filosofía?  ¿Qué o quién es el verdadero Cordero que debemos seguir?  En el programa de hoy, vamos a investigar en La Biblia Santa lo que significa seguir al Cordero y quién es el verdadero Cordero.

    QSI Special Broadcast "The Forces of Faith" (Continued)

    in Education

    Max Planck "The Father Of Quantum Theory" - "Anybody who has been seriously engaged in scientific work of any kind realizes that over the entrance to the gates of the temple of science are written the words: Ye must have faith. It is a quality which the scientist cannot dispense with."  "Where Is Science Going?" (1932)


    Furthermore, "Why is this important?"


    It is an upgrade to our thinking so that we will be able to translate concretes and abstracts and know how to apply our translations to the real world and make more significant progress.  Concrete operational children coordinate several important features of a task rather than centering on only the perceptually dominant one. It's called "Decentration".  (Illustration: Liquid from a Tall glass poured into a more stout glass - Is it more or less?)  Those not dominated in their perception and thinking by the physical/concrete features of what's in front of them can grasp and express the logic that leads to the correct perception of the reality behind (or carried by) the physical/concrete object/symbol that they are perceiving.


    Similarly, students of higher knowledge  in Al-islam must move to the point where they are able to make the “Goal of their ‘Ibada” more than “Good Character”: They must achieve “moral and ethical decentration” and apply their faithful intellect and ritual practice to scientific discoveries to improve their social reality and the world’s, as The Muslims of our Golden Age did.

    C.D. - Obama = Clinton = Saunders (Are things THAT Bad?) (yes)

    in Islam

    ASA,


    I recall, when the GOP had fielded 16 contenders for the POTUS, it became the butt of jokes from a cross-section of personalities, most notably, Barack Obama, yet ironically, this may have been the  been the best example inclusive, participatory democracy.


    Of course over time, the field has greatly narrowed to just 2 serious contenders, with Kasich, Bush and Rubio being the holders-on; and I rue over demise of Dr. Ben Carson. So today, it’s Trump and Crux, which has proven to be a most acrimonious relationship.


    Yet, on the Democrat side, we have a deck which includes a non-descript former governor and a 74-year-old senator.


    No one else in the Democratic Party desires to become the nest president of the USA? What’s the real reason, Joe Biden decided not to run, after reportedly, his late son, Beau, on his deathbed, encouraged him to do so?


    Of course, we hear the ‘age card” being thrown about, but in all fairness, a President Sanders would be over 80 years old, at the end of two terms (there have been presidents who have opted not to seek a second term). But, the point is made, in deference to a woman, at 68, who clearly not a “spring chicken”. Trump is 69 years old.


    What I find most interesting, is how the deck has been so well stacked to assure a Hillary Clinton victory (i.e. no REAL opposition) – the most glaring example of AFFIRMATIVE ACTION, based on gender AND race.


    But, this begs the question, “will the black community swoon again, for another “Messiah”? Will we finally begin to THINK, in assessing candidates? I dread the very notion of a repeat of the ideological letdown of 2008 and 2012.


    Will the reminder of scriptural standards be met with indifference or hostility, as it was and is, when it comes to Obama?


    Tune in this Saturday; invite your friends and neighbors to CRITICAL DISCOURSE.
