The US Navy 7.62 NATO Garand,

During the late 1950’s the US Military adopted the M14 rifle to replace the older M1 Garand.  Chambered in 7.62 NATO (7.62X51), the standard cartridge of most NATO and western countries, the M14 was a semi/fully automatic design based on the older Garand.  During it’s production the Army and Marines were given priority when it came to its issuance, the Navy was considered to have low priority when it came to small arms.  As a result the Navy often suffered from shortages of rifles.

To ensure that they had enough rifles, the Navy sought to modify its older stocks of World War II and Korean War vintage M1 Garand’s.  To share common caliber with the M14, the Navy enacted a program to modify the old M1 Garand from .30-06 to 7.62 NATO.  To save money they purchased a special chamber adapter which could supposedly be installed upon delivery.  The user simply had to insert the adapter into the chamber and test fire it three times so that the adapter would pressure seal into the chamber.

While the new adapter system saved the US Navy money, it was also difficult to install and dangerous to use.  Many of the adapters were too small for the M1 Garand’s chamber and could not be safely installed.  As a result the Navy the turned to the traditional method of caliber modification; reboring and rechambering the the barrels of the M1 Garand.  

Companies such a Harrington and Richardson, American Machine and Foundry, and the Springfield Armory were contracted to produce the conversions.  Altogether around 62,000 M1 Garands were converted to 7.62 NATO by the Navy.  They remained in use throughout the 1960’s, and even were used as training rifles up to the mid 1970’s.  They were eventually replaced with the M14 and the even newer M16 assault rifle.

Mental-health issues can’t be solved by psychologists alone—city design can help, too

The world’s cities aren’t very mentally healthy.

People who reside in cities are more likely to develop depression, anxiety, and schizophrenia than those living in the countryside. No matter where you live, at least one in four people will have a mental illness in their lifetime, and everyone suffers from mental-health problems such as low mood, loneliness, stress, and anxiety at some time or another. These kinds of problems can affect everything from our relationships and housing to our social capital and resilience.

But mental health is not just an individual issue: It affects the whole city. According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), economic costs associated with mental illness amount to 4% of national GDP. Mental illness increases a city’s costs of health and social care and puts people at higher risk of physical-health problems. There are also indirect costs to the city: People with mental-health problems can become disadvantaged in education and employment, and their opportunities for economic and social participation may begin to decline.

In these ways, mental-health problems affect a city’s ability to remain thriving, resilient, and sustainable. But while many of the more physical aspects of health have been addressed using urban design—for example, some cities have created walking and biking infrastructure that encourages physical fitness to reduce obesity, while others have separated pedestrians from motor-vehicle emissions to reduce urban air pollution and prevent respiratory diseases—most cities have not taken the same intentional approach with their citizens’ mental health.

The solution for mentally healthy cities

But urban planners can design the urban environment in ways that systematically address mental-health opportunities. For example:

  • Expanding access to green spaces—such as parks, street trees, or even office-window views of nature—has been proven to benefit mental health.
  • “Active design” is not simply a physical health effort: Because regular exercise can be an effective way to address some forms of mild depression (as well as reducing anxiety and some of the symptoms of dementia, ADHD, and even schizophrenia), interventions like creating walking circuits in a park or installing safe cycling infrastructure can have substantial mental-health benefits.
  • Positive social interaction increases self esteem and feelings of belonging as well as mitigating loneliness and anxiety. In order to encourage this, public spaces can install features like benches and chess tables to facilitate social interaction and provide settings for community activities.

When people are experiencing mental-health problems, individual and group interventions by mental health professionals are essential. But when it comes to promoting good mental health and preventing disorders, there are myriad untapped opportunities. When we shift the scale of innovation from the individual to the city, we can create long-lasting solutions that make our cities more enjoyable—and mentally healthy—for all.

moonlightdancestationalpha1  asked:

So I'm starting to get into the halo series but I don't understand why did the covenant attack humanity?

Sit yorself down - I’ll grab the marshmallows, you light the fire, and let me spin you this yarn.

The reason why the Covenant attacked humanity is a rather long story, it encompasses many years, many characters, and many lies.

Some two-to-three thousand years ago, a race known as the San’Shyuum (who are colloquially known as the Prophets) were engaged in a bitter civil war over their beliefs about Forerunner technology. The Stoic faction believed that the Forerunner relics which was scattered across their world were meant to be worshipped, but tampering with them was a great heretical crime. The Reformist faction did not share this belief, they desired the advancement of the San’Shyuum species through the use of Forerunner technology.

The war lasted some 100 years, and it ended when one thousand Reformists managed to commandeer the Keyship - the pyramid-like Forerunner vessel you see in Halo 2 and 3. The Reformists then made a bold move. They launched the Keyship, and as the great engines roared to life it tore out a chunk of their home planet of Janjur Qom. You know the dome of High Charity? That’s what it tore out.

The Reformists had essentially won the war, but they were in a rather sticky situation. So few of them had managed to make it aboard the Keyship, with only a thousand of them they were left with a very small gene pool and had to establish a system of mating that would prevent them from inbreeding. All the while, they sailed among the stars until they encountered another space-faring race known as the Sangheili - colloquially known as the Elites.

History repeated itself, as the Sangheili held the same religious values as the Stoics with just as much zeal, and war broke out once more. While the San’Shyuum were limited by their small numbers and frail biology, they had a massive advantage in the shape of the Forerunner Keyship. Its devastating weaponry made short work of the vastly inferior Sangheili fleets, driving them back system by system until they were virtually on Sanghelios’ doorstep.

In secret, groups of Sangheili began to experiment with utilising Forerunner technology because they knew just how dishonourably outmatched they were in this fight. And it worked, the Sangheili renounced the aspect of their faith regarding the use of Forerunner tech and began to launch hit-and-run strikes on the San’Shyuum with deadly results. The war had now progressed from a very one-sided series of strikes in favour of the San’Shyuum to a stalemate that would inevitably bring both races to extinction if something wasn’t done to end the conflict.

The San’Shyuum needed an army, since their numbers were so small, and they needed others to assist them in their pursuit of Forerunner relics. So they came to the Sangheili with a proposition known as the Writ of Union, you hear small excerpts of it in Halo 2, it told the Sangheili of a promised Great Journey that the Forerunners went on 100,000 years ago. They activated the Halo rings and ascended to godhood, and the San’Shyuum wished to recreate that feat in order to join their gods, and they welcomed the Sangheili (along with many other races, over time) to join them.

Thus the Covenant was born out of this promise. As we know, this promise held no truth, as the Halos are not godmakers, but weapons that cause destruction on a galactic scale which were used to prevent the Flood from consuming the galaxy.

Don’t worry, I’m coming to the point, but this is really important backstory - establishing the fragility of this promise.

In the year 2525, a Kig-Yar (Jackal) vessel came across a strange new ship that they hadn’t encountered before - a human freighter named Horn of Plenty that was shipping melons across human colony worlds. The Kig-Yar are scavengers and pirates by nature, so they raided the ship, as well as another human ship they came across soon after. When neither the cargo nor the ship arrived at the human colony world it was bound to, humanity took notice.

Humanity was at war with themselves at this point and had no idea that these raids came from an alien species, they thought it was their own kind - Insurrectionists. The humans contacted these new aliens, the Kig-Yar, Jiralhanae (Brutes), and Yanme’e (Drones) with pictograms and proposed a meeting of fair trade on the planet Harvest where they could sort out all this nasty business peacefully.

Now, Covenant ships are equipped with devices known as Luminaries which identify the presence of Forerunner relics. When they arrived at Harvest, the Luminary detected that the planet was a treasure trove of Forerunner relics - the planet had millions of them. The crew became very interested in claiming these as part of the trade and contacted High Charity to inform them of this discovery, but were unaware of one thing.

The humans were the relics. They were what the Luminary was identifying. The trade meting was going well, until a nervous Unggoy (Grunt) discharged its weapon and killed one of the humans - resulting in a skirmish breaking out, the first battle of Harvest.

On High Charity, two San’Shyuum known as the Minister of Fortitude and the Vice Minister of Tranquility were forming a scheme. They wanted to become Hierarchs, the triumvirate of San’Shyuum who lead the entire Covenant. They were confident that this reliquary on Harvest would be the perfect opportunity to propel their ascension up the Covenant ranks, but first they had to get divine permission from the Oracle aboard the Keyship - an ancient, long-dormant Forerunner AI known as Mendicant Bias.

Aboard the Keyship, they met with another San’Shyuum named the Philologist who presented the data sent to them about the relics at Harvest. Then, something unexpected happened - Mendicant Bias awakened. And it bore grave news to the three San’Shyuum, presenting to them a glyph from the Luminaries that they had been misinterpreting for thousands of years.

What they believed meant ‘Reclamation’, representative of Forerunner relics, actually meant ‘Reclaimer’ - the truly chosen heirs of the Forerunners. Bias called humanity its ‘makers’, and that it must fulfil its mission to bring them safely to an installation known as the Ark.

It then got worse. Mendicant Bias attempted to launch the Keyship, an action which, had it succeeded, would have destroyed High Charity. Fortunately (for the Covenant, unfortunate for… everyone else), the Keyship’s systems were occupied by the Lekgolo (the worms that make up Hunters) who managed to shut down Mendicant Bias and avert the AI from completing its mission.

The three San’Shyuum were now left with the belief that the Forerunners had not ascended at all, but were left behind as humans (this is also false, but that’s a MUCH bigger topic which I’ve written extensively about here). This broke the fundamental promise set about by the Writ of Union, the Covenant had already grown fragile over the years as many of the species (particularly the Sangheili and Jiralhanae, and the Unggoy and the Kig-Yar) did not get along very well at all. If the truth of this were to ever get out, the Covenant would break. Civil war would break out, and the San’Shyuum would lose everything - likely going extinct in the process.

These three San’Shyuum then deposed the current Hierarchs, something that had been in the planning for a log while, and took their place as the newly named Prophets of Truth, Mercy, and Regret. They declared that humans had tampered with and corrupted the Luminaries to make false idols of themselves, pretending to be Forerunners, and that they would destroy real Forerunner relics to deny the Covenant’s path to the Great Journey. Thus, the Human-Covenant war began with the Covenant brought into the fold and united against a common enemy in the form of humanity.

This was a rather long post, but I hope you found the backstory interesting and insightful! :)

"Can you see a future with her?" Gen looked at Shaw and asked.

Shaw pushed a pin into the wall to hold up Gen’s poster in her dorm room, “Well, I don’t see a future without her.”

Gen sat on her bed and watched Shaw put up her poster. It wasn’t really a poster that she particularly liked. It was just a generic shot of stars and a nebula, but it’s purpose was to cover one of her hiding places in the wall. “Where is she? I wanted her to come.”

“She has some business to wrap up,” Shaw got down from the chair she was standing on. “What about your outlet safe?”

“I already installed it,” Gen looked around the room. “I need help with the bug in the corner.”

“You’re gonna bug your own room?” Shaw asked.

Gen nodded, “I want to know if anyone comes in while I’m not here.”

“How about encrypted video?” 

Gen looked at the door and smiled when she saw Root standing there with a small video camera in her hand. Gen got up off of the bed and hugged Root. Root grinned, “Hey, kiddo. Sorry I’m late.”

Shaw took the video camera from Root, “This feed only goes to her and you right?”

Root nodded. “If anything happens I will be the first to know.”

Folks from 4chan have been clogging tags as well as seizing minors’ selfies and photoshopping their faces onto pornography. This is a guide as to how you can maintain your safety and take action.

1) If you see or hear of said pornography and photoshopped pictures being posted, immediately screenshot it, write down the post URL, blog URL, photo URL and any other sort of info involving the post. This is an act of defemation/slander, harassment, sexual harassment, and possibly pedophilia depending on the age of the individual who has been photoshopped. However defamation has certain requirements and you must prove that you suffered damages as a result of the “publication” of the false and defamatory statements to 3rd parties—thus why collecting as much information as possible is necessary. If this is not happening to you, collect all of this information to help back the victim.

2) DO NOT ENGAGE WITH THESE PEOPLE. REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY ARE POSTING IN TAGS OR HAVE USED A SELFIE OF YOURS OR SOMEONE ELSE’S, DO NOT ENGAGE FOR YOUR SAFETY.

3) Retag your selfies with a personal tag, “my face” “selfie” or anything of the like is not a safe choice.

4) Install an invisible statcounter, very easy to install, so you can track the IPs in case one of these individuals visits your blog. A useful asset.

5) DO NOT POST IN TAGS OR ATTEMPT TO “CLEANSE” THEM. THIS WILL ONLY CLOG THEM. Stay out of /all/ tags and simply block and report blogs you see posting triggering content. Stay out of ALL tags.

6) Turn off your submit box. Now.

7) Stay safe, don’t post any personal info that may allow someone to exploit or locate you and take care.
