Operation Crossroads: The Test of Atomic Weapons in Naval Warfare
"World war two had just ended the year before in nineteen forty-five while the war was over. The cold war between the united states and the soviet union was just beginning at this particular moment. The united states had a monopoly on atomic bombs. However it while they had vanished to create and detonate several bombs. There was still a great deal. They didn't know about this weapon. Only three atomic bombs had been detonated at this point. The original trinity test explosion in new mexico. The bomb used over hiroshima and the one used over nagasaki. All three of these were detonated over land. What no one knew was what would happen. If these weapons were used in naval warfare. What would happen to ships which were hit with an atomic blast with they sankar would they flow it. People in the navy had speculations but no one had any proof to this end of the. Us navy initiated operation crossroads. This was to be an a of atomic weapons in naval warfare. The navy search for a location where they could conduct such a test. They needed somewhere remote yet somewhere where they could set up headquarters on land and have observation posts. They eventually settled on a remote coral atoll in the pacific ocean in the marshall islands. The navy move the one hundred sixty seven people who lived on the island to other nearby islands so they could begin testing. They also sailed a fleet of ninety five ships to the atoll which would serve as target ships for the test. These were ships that were set for retirement and the scrap yard and instead would be used for testing they would get newt facilities for over. Forty thousand people were constructed. Who would be there to the tests. They had to build everything from scratch. They build bunkers to observe the test. They built barracks kitchens offices clubs for officers and clubs for enlisted men. It was a massive undertaking and all done far away from prying eyes in the middle of the pacific ocean on july first. The first of these tests took place he would be the fourth atomic bomb ever detonated. In the first above water the test was given the codename able it was dropped from a b twenty nine bomber and exploded approximately five hundred feet above the surface.

He just told me there. It's inherently there are certain areas on every highway and every road. Whether it's a dip in the road or if it's an incline, or if it's a turn at the traffic just constantly at that same squad always slows down and then starts to go. You know, people just can't figure it out. But it's just part of traffic. Unsure. Guests can tell you about that. It's a crazy thing. Dan want to comment on that Because I totally agree there are certain periods and certain roadways that almost inevitably slow down for no reason. Yeah, and the reason why I like you said it's because you know of curves and dips and everything, and that's actually the way highways want to be designed because of highway fatigue, So they put in those those turns and the dips. But also you have to think about the landscape that these highways are on. I mean, they border water and, you know, they got to kind of do what they have to do so the road can be put in, but the highway fatigue was big when they were building. You know, this was after World War two, and they were building the highway system. And, uh, yeah, they were noticing. Yeah, you can make a straight run. That's fine, but they were noticing then that people were kind of drifting off the road, So they started doing the bends and curves And maybe that's also so people don't speed out there. But, you know, there's always a ripple effect and the ridges on the sides of the highways make make a difference.

Chaotic scene evacuation situation if afghanistan where effectively america is calling the shots. It's driving the agenda. On the eu and nato allies america have to follow.

The Monkey Bridge in Ōtsuki, Yamanashi Prefecture
"Sometimes an item or building jumps out of the story and into reality in japan. For example. there's a bridge with tall tale behind it. About fifty miles from tokyo. In yamanashi prefecture is the city of otsuki. Its history dates all the way back to the jomon period between fourteen thousand three hundred bc. The city was nearly wiped off the map in nineteen forty five two days before the end of world war two following a bombing by the united states but it was able to bounce back after two other towns and four villages combined to form a new rookie in nineteen fifty four. Despite hundreds of years of change and turmoil including near extinction one of the city's lasting treasures is the sorrow hashi bridge also known as the monkey bridge. It's listed as one of the six official places of scenic beauty in japan and those who cross the gorge know that it's a well earned designation although no one knows exactly when the bridge was built an early military document from fourteen seventy nine does mention its existence. It is supported by four pairs of cantilever beams underneath which are embedded directly into the cliff on each side. The beams are also tended with their own peaked roofs to keep the rain and other debris away while the actual center of the bridge is held up by an arch. Of course a bridge doesn't wind up in the cabinet of curiosities simply because it's beautiful. No it's the reason for its nickname that elevates it from a basic way of crossing the river into an architectural marvel according to the legend the monkey bridge earned. Its name in one of two ways. The first comes from a story that dates back to the seventh century. Which told of a couple who desperately needed to cross the gorge with no bridge in place at the time monkeys living in the surrounding forest emerged and used their bodies to form a makeshift bridge. So that the couple could cross safely. A gardener named sheera echo watched all of this happen so he took it upon himself to build a permanent bridge so that others could cross the gorge easily and without any help from the local

Paying for College and Curbing Student Debt
"I heard about sharing kelly in her massive college debt through josh mitchell. I'm an economics reporter at the wall street journal in washington. Dc josh covered student debt at the journal for nearly a decade. And he's just written a book out this month about the federal student loan program and its history called the debt trap. How student loans became a national catastrophe. The idea of the federal government lending students money for college originated after world war two with a gi bill. There was a provision that offered qualified servicemembers five hundred dollars a year for college of continuing education gi bill. It wasn't until the late nineteen fifties under president. Whitey eisenhower that other groups became eligible for college aid. Josh says the idea took off shortly after another launch when russia sent its sputnik satellite into space.

That's all ahead on conversations. Frank. Let's start at the beginning. What was it like growing up as a Jewish kid in Milwaukee? Well, let me tell you, Libby. I grew up on the west side of Milwaukee for the first. Uh, I guess, uh, 11 years of my life and my folks Lived in a lower flat on 40th and our street. They paid $40 a month rent and it was my mother. My father and I had a brother named Stanley and until we were in the sixth grade Uh, we went to a place called Townsend Street School on Chairman Boulevard. And it was during World War two and being a Jewish kid, and that particular neighborhood wasn't always wine and roses. There were frequently times when, uh We were confronted about our religion, and we had fist fights on the streets. So to answer your question. There were kind of trouble sometimes during that period of time. How did that affect you? Well, I think it made me appreciate. That we should be tolerant towards each other irrespective of our differences. So, uh, I think that it grounded this guy. Into believing that whether you are black or white or ground Or Asian, Whether you are one religion or another, we all are essentially the same and that we should not use what differences we happen to have with. People with whom we interact as a basis for conflict. And I like to think that I still think that today I am what I do and thinking and in the way that I practice law and the way that I serve the community. Thinking back to those days. What did you want to be when you blow? Well, early on, I, uh I honored Uh, the law and I entered the law because I guess that I had a kind of a natural ability to communicate orally with people. Uh, my mother. Father did not go to college, but my dad had two brothers who were lawyers. My mother. Had one brother, who was a CPA. Another brother, who was the PhD in engineering and retired as a professor of electrical engineering at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. And so I had role models growing up in the family.
