only 109


More than 700 people were held during the first weekend of Trump’s travel ban

  • During the first weekend after Trump’s travel ban took effect, 746 people were detained as they attempted to enter the United States.
  • This is significantly more than Trump’s estimation — blasted on Twitter on Jan. 30 — that only 109 people were detained.
  • According to CNN, the Trump administration released the list of names on Thursday due to a court order in Darweesh v. Trump, which is the first federal case against the administration’s travel ban. 
  • A letter from the Department of Justice said those detained include people who are permanent legal residents, or green card holders, in the U.S. Read more (2/24/17 11:54 AM)

Texas wins at Germany⬇1000 km Nürburgring 1966
Jim Hall wants a Chaparral to drive at Le Mans. The best car for it was the 2D. Driven by Jo Bonnier & Phil Hill. After a bad race at Daytona they came on 5th June to the Green Hell 1000km as preparation for Le Mans.
Denis Jenkinson: “Their chance of winning were not realistic, only one car. And Chaparral had no Nürburgring experience.” (But a license plate from Texas😀)
11 classes with 109 cars (only 77 started). GT-cars like Healey, Glas or Triumph were chicanes for the Prototypes. Favourites were Mike Parkes/ John Surtees in a Ferrari 330P3, Lorenzo Bandini/ Lodovico Scarfiotti it with same car and some Porsche Carreras, Ford GT40s and Ferrari 275LMs. ZDF (german TV) and Lufthansa had also cars. Chaparral man Hap Sharp about the 330 P3:“He could just as easily broken go as our.”
Parkes/ Surtees were starting from Pole. The Chaparral 2nd.
After the chaotic start, the 330 P3 runs away. But later he often need to stop because of rear suspension trouble( later he retired). And the 2D was still in the lead. Only when he stopped some Dino V6s or Porsche led for same minutes. The weapon of the 2D was a automatic gear.
Hill drove faster than his F1 lap record from 1961.
Then in lap 37. Hill just passed the boxes as a heavy rain shower begins. Chaparral had no wet tyres. They just carve grooves in the firestone tires. The stop need a bit longer, because the tires were to big for the wheel wells. Hill got nervous.
But after 44 laps suddenly they won. Surtees/Parkes were one of the first gratulants. The Chaparral mechanics and drivers celebrated like a big family.
2 weeks later at Le Mans the Chaparral retired after 10h of racing.

Papa Shepard is so cute! She'd make a great dad while Liara is a perfect mother. How do you think Liara is as a mother?

Liara’d be a bit clumsy but great ‘asari’ mother:). I think as they are different species from us, human, they’d have totally different education system for their children. Even though Liara is smart, great, cool shadow broker, she is still only 109 yr old baby asari. She might make many mistakes while raising their child(ren?). So, in child support, I wish Shep would be rather better than Liara lol.
44 School Shootings and 28 Deaths Since Sandy Hook —” America Is Failing Miserably on Guns

I went to Frank’s gun shop in Newtown, Conn. on a frigid Thursday night in mid-December, just before the one-year anniversary of the Sandy Hook massacre. Frank’s friend of 40 years, John, 69, was in the back of the shop smoking a cigarette. (Both men preferred to not give their last names.) Several of John’s kills — boar, ram, buffalo and deer — were displayed proudly across the wall. Frank, a Vietnam veteran and former detective, was polishing a beautiful rifle behind the counter before getting ready to close up the shop for the night.

Roughly a year earlier, Frank sold Nancy Lanza the Glock pistol that her son, Adam Lanza, used to commit suicide after his brutal rampage at Sandy Hook elementary school.

Frank fervently expressed that the events of that day were unimaginable tragedies. He also argued that limiting access to guns was not the answer. Many Americans must agree: In December, of the roughly 1,500 gun bills that were introduced, only 109 became law, and 70 of those laws actually loosened gun restrictions rather than tightened them.

-30 1951 Anatahan A group of stranded survivors of a Japanese vessel sunk by the American military found their way to the island of Anatahan, 75 nautical miles north of Saipan. The island’s coast line is precipitous with landing beaches on the northern and western shore and a small sandy beach on the southwest shore. It’s steep slopes are furrowed by deep gorges covered by high grass. This brooding cone jutting from the sea floor is a large, extinct volcano with two peaks and a grass covered flat field, the final resting place for a B-29 Superfortress that crashed upon returning from a bombing mission over Nagoya, Japan on January 3, 1945 killing the aircraft’s crew.

By 1951 the Japanese holdouts on the island refused to believe that the war was over and resisted every attempt by the Navy to remove them. This group was first discovered in February 1945, when several Chamorros from Saipan were sent to the island to recover the bodies of the Saipan based B-29, T square 42, from the 498th Bomb Group, 875th Squadron, 73rd Wing under the command of Richard Carlson Stickney, Jr. The Chamorros reported that there were about thirty Japanese survivors from three Japanese ships sunk in June 1944, one of which was an Okinawan woman.

Pamphlets had been dropped informing the holdouts that the war was over and that they should surrender, but these requests were ignored. They lived a sparse life, eating coconuts, taro, wild sugar cane, fish and lizards. They smoked crushed, dried papaya leaves wrapped in the leaves of bananas and made an intoxicating beverage known as “tuba”, (coconut wine). They lived in palm frond huts with woven floor matting of pandanus. Their life improved after the crash of the aircraft . They used metal from the B-29 to fashion crude implements such as pots, knives and roofing for their hut. The oxygen tanks were used to store water, clothing was made from nylon parachutes, the cords used for fishing line. The springs from machine guns were fashioned into fish hooks. Several in the group also had machine guns and pistols recovered from the aircraft.

Personal aggravations developed as a result of being too long in close association within a small group on a small island and also because of tuba drinking. The presence of only one woman, Kazuko Higa, caused great difficulty as well. Six of eleven deaths that occurred among the holdouts were the result of violence. One man displayed thirteen knife wounds. Ms. Higa would, from time to time, transfer her affections between at least four of the men after each mysteriously disappeared as a result of “being swallowed by the waves while fishing.” In July 1950, Ms. Higa went to the beach when an American vessel appeared off shore and asked to be removed from the island. She was taken to Saipan aboard the Miss Susie and, upon arrival, informed authorities that the men on the island did not believe the war was over.

  Meanwhile, officials of the Japanese government became interested in the situation on Anatahan and asked the Navy for information “concerning the doomed and living Robinson Crusoes who were living a primitive life on an uninhabited island”, and offered to send a ship to rescue them. The families of the Japanese holdouts on the island of Anatahan , were contacted in Japan and requested by the U. S. Navy to write letters advising them that the war was over and that they should surrender. In January 1951, a message from the Governor of Kanagawa Prefecture was delivered.

  The letters were dropped by air on June 26 and finally convinced the holdouts that they should give themselves up. Thus, six years after the end of World War II, “Operation Removal” got underway from Saipan under the Command of James B. Johnson, USNR, aboard the Navy Tug USS Cocopa. Lt. Commander James B. Johnson and Mr. Ken Akatani, an interpreter, went ashore by rubber boat and formally accepted the last surrender of World War II on the morning of June 30, 1951 which also coincided with the last day of the Naval Administration of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands.

-1953 Tinian
Japanese soldier Murata Susumu was captured in 1953. He was living in a small shack near a swamp since the war.

-November 1955 Seaman Noburo Kinoshita, after his capture from the Luzon jungle, hanged himself rather than “return to Japan in defeat.”

-1965 Vella Lavella Straggler
One Japanese straggler was located. Sited by a women in her garden, the Solomon’s Japanese ambassador flew to the island. Fliers were dropped saying the war was over, and he was returned home to Japan with full honors.

-January 1972 Guam
Shoichi Yokoi, was found along the Talofofo River. He brought back his army-issue rifle and said “I am sorry I did not serve his majesty to my satisfaction.” “We Japanese soldiers were told to prefer death to the disgrace of getting captured alive,”

-1973 Indonesia
Private Teruo Nakamura surrendered after 33 years hiding on a small island of Morotai.

-1974 Philippines -2nd Lt. Hiroo Onada Lubang Island - Probably the most ‘famous’ of the Japanese holdouts, Onoda was the only survivor of a group of four.  29 years after Japan’s formal surrender, and 15 years after being declared legally dead in Japan.

-December 1974 Private Teruo Nakamura, a Taiwan-born soldier (Amis: Attun Palalin) was discovered by the Indonesian Air Force on Morotai, and surrendered to a search patrol on December 18, 1974.

-April 1980 Philippines - Mindoro Island

(NOTE - Although fascinating, these two were not true hold-outs because they knew the war was over. Rather, they were former Japanese Army Soldiers who went on to fight with another faction and never returned home.)

-May 2005 Two Japanese Soldiers on Mindanao
A report in early May 2005 talked about two former Japanese Army soldiers found on Mindanao;
Reportedly, their names were Yoshio Yamakawa, 87, from Osaka, and Tsuzuki Nakauchi, 85.
