"The 🇬🇧 Battle-class destroyers" - (Part 12 = While the Second World War rages on the first ships of "1943" Battles are ordered) •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Photo caption - British Battle class destroyer HMS Camperdown (D32) anchored at a buoy on the River Clyde, June 12th 1945. This photograph FL 2500 from the collections of the Imperial War Museums (collection no. 8308-29) -------------------------------------------- The first 16 ships (two flotillas) were ordered in early 1943. They were based on a slightly widened version of the 1942 ships. They were to be fitted with the American Type 37 DCT which was now becoming available and which would be equipped with the British Radar Type 275 fire control set and Medium Range System (MRS) 9 fire control system. In an attempt to counter the criticisms that the ships were underarmed for their size, and were incapable of engaging a target right aft, a single 4.5 inch gun on a standard Mk V mounting would be positioned on the original 4 inch gun deck abaft the funnel. -------------------------------------------- In the event, these guns failed to provide a solution as they were restricted to firing on either beam because the midship positioning meant their arc of fire was fouled by the ships fore and aft superstructure. The ships' AA armament was reduced to eight 40/60 mm Bofors, two twin STAAG Mk. II mountings on top of the after deckhouse, one twin Mk. V on the middle deckhouse controlled by system mounted on top of the gun crew shelter, and a single mounting Mk. VII on either bridge wing. All ships would be fitted with a Squid Anti-submarine mortar on the quarterdeck and ten 21-inch torpedo tubes in two quintuple mountings. #The🇬🇧BattleClassDestroyers -------------------------------------------- #GreatBritain #Australia #RoyalNavy #RoyalAustralianNavy #HMS #HMAS #WorldWarII #SecondWorldWar #WWII #WWIIHistory #PacificWar #BritishPacificFleet #PortsmouthHistoricDockYard #BritishAdmiralty #MediterraneanSea #ChathamDockyard #NavalHistory #NavalWarfare #MilitaryHistory #History #Historian #HistoryBuff

@Regrann from @africanunification: @Regranned from @sqbzz - "Take what you do best and do it for your people" - John Henrick Clarke

John Henrik Clarke was born in Union Springs, Alabama on New Years Day, 1915. His family came from a long line of sharecroppers. They moved to Columbus, Georgia, when he was four years old. He drew a powerful image of the woman who taught him in the fifth grade in 1925, in Columbus, Ga., Eveline Taylor. Taylor put a halt to his rambunctious play with other children because she saw something in him. "It's no disgrace to be alone," she said, "It's no disgrace to be right when everybody else thinks you are wrong. There is nothing wrong with being a thinker.... Your playing days are over." With that, the teacher helped set the course of life for the student; for those words would reverberate in him when he later taught the junior Bible class at a local Baptist church. Clarke noticed that although many bible stories "unfolded in Africa...I saw no African people in the printed and illustrated Sunday school lessons," he wrote in 1985. "I began to suspect at this early age that someone had distorted the image of my people. My long search for the true history of African people the world over began." That search took him to libraries, museums, attics, archives and collections in Asia, the Caribbean, Europe, Latin America and Africa.
What he found was that the history of black people is worldwide; that "the first light of human consciousness and the world's first civilizations were in Africa"; that the so called Dark Ages were dark only for Europe

Burgers with steamed broccoli and baked potatoes. It's what's for dinner. 😍

I planned my workout block so that I could have my biggest meal at 6:30pm. Dinner with my family is very important to me on the nights I don't work. 💯

Do you eat dinner as a family with your kids??

#Documentary #photographer Kwame Brathwaite and his son Kwame S. Brathwaite join #historian Tanisha Ford to reflect on the impact of Brathwaite Sr.’s pioneering (👊)“Black Is Beautiful” photographs. Beginning in the late 1950s and early ‘60s, #Brathwaite helped to popularize an Afro-centric vision of female beauty featuring unstraightened hair and dark skin, then considered exotic in mainstream American media and popular culture. Inspired by the writings of Marcus Garvey, Brathwaite’s "natural" #portraits of the Grandassa Models serve as a testament to the lasting power of photography as a cultural and political tool.

This program is inspired by our upcoming exhibition, Mod New York: Fashion Takes a Trip (opens November 22). To view all of the programs in the series, click here.
About the Speakers:
Kwame Brathwaite has been considered the ever-present documentary photographer of the Black Arts & Culture movement. He started as a jazz photographer and helped to form the African Jazz Art Society and Studios (AJASS), which launched the “Black Is Beautiful” movement through concerts, fashion shows, events, and photographs. He also took pictures of iconic events, such as the Rumble in the Jungle and The Jackson Five’s trip to Africa in 1974.

Kwame S. Brathwaite, son of photographer Kwame Brathwaite, manages his father's photographic archive and engages in collaborative projects that reflect the varied themes of his father's work: activism, politics, fashion, and music.

Tanisha C. Ford is Associate Professor of Black American Studies and History at the University of Delaware. She is the author of Liberated Threads: Black Women, Style, and the Global Politics of Soul (University of North Carolina Press, 2015).

1c Fast Lake Navigation, Pan-American Expo Cancelled Stamp, 1902,
The 1901 Pan-American Expo showcased advances made during the 19th century – thrilling visitors with demonstrations of speed on land, sea and rail. That theme was the subject of the richly engraved Pan-American stamps – the first American bi-color stamps issued since the 1869 Pictorials. History was also made when President McKinley was assassinated at the Pan-American Expo – making Vice-President Teddy Roosevelt the youngest U.S. President in history! *Rare stamped postcards are shipped first class, sleeved and boarded for protection.

"The 🇬🇧 Battle-class destroyers" - (Part 11 = Criticism of British destroyers, and 32 ships of the "1943" Battle class are planned) •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Photo caption - HMS Armada, a Royal Navy Battle class destroyer completed toward the end of the Second World War, underway in coastal waters. Pennant No R14. This is photograph FL 1000 from the collections of the Imperial War Museums (collection no. 8308-29) -------------------------------------------- A further criticism, not just of the Battle-class design, but of British destroyers generally, was of the main machinery layout. Until 1936 all destroyers were laid out with three boiler rooms, as the naval staff considered this the minimum requirement for battle damage survivability. In 1936 the head of the destroyer section of the Constructors Department came up with a radical new design for the J class. This included a new system of longitudinal framing to both ease construction and increase the integral strength of the ships. It also called for a two-boiler layout with both boilers fitted back to back, allowing them to vent up a single large funnel. -------------------------------------------- This decreased the ships silhouette and gave improved firing arcs for the anti-aircraft armament. This layout and hull design proved very effective and made for good-looking ships. The J-class design was used in all following destroyer designs until the advent of the Weapon and Daring classes. However, the boiler-room layout was a continuing source of criticism, as a single well-placed hit could cripple a ship completely. -------------------------------------------- In order to find a solution to these criticisms, it was originally planned that 32 ships (four flotillas) of an improved design would be built under the 1943 and 1944 Naval Estimates and that there would be changes in both armament and layout in the later ships. It was expected that the 4.5-in RP41 BD Mk VI turret, tested by Saintes from 1946/48, would be available to arm the later ships. Ultimately 26 ships were ordered. These formed two distinct groups, plus two ships of an expanded design. #The🇬🇧BattleClassDestroyers

2. I don't particularly find history that interesting so it's a bit surprising that I've chosen to read a historical book.

On a first glance it appeared as though it was a book describing alternate paths that history could have taken if particular events never happened or if different people ended up in charge. However it turned out that the book is essentially a critical review of the essays and media portrayals of the subject, which was slightly disappointing.

The author makes fair points about how these scenarios are generally used as wishful political thinking or as another form of entertainment. He also goes back to the same examples throughout, the parts of history that he has specialised in. These cause the book to drag on quite a bit, when it isn't even that long.

Wouldn't recommend this one.

__¿CUÁL ES EL ORIGEN DE LA EDUCACIÓN?__
◀️…LA RESPUESTA EN LA HISTORIA▶️
▶️Aprender historia es tan absurdo como perder el tiempo en el pasado, es mejor vivir el presente y pensar en el futuro, a quién le importa que pasaba en el pasado, a quién le importa cómo vivían los demás, para qué queremos saber las huellas que dejó el ser humano, puede que descubramos cosas que nos puedan servir como incentivo para algo del presente y porque no para el futuro, puede que aprendamos de los errores, puede que saber una cosa lleva poder saber y entender otra, y lo que es peor si sabes la historia ya no del pasado si no del presente de otras culturas, de otros humanos en el mundo, seamos mejores personas, empaticemos con su modo de ver y vivir la vida. Puede que seamos mejores y valoremos lo que tenemos y puede que comprendamos que es lo que queremos. Claro pero quién quiere ser mejor!!! . Quién quiere ayudar!!!. Quién quiere la paz!!!. Todos deseamos tener mucho dinero por encima de quien sea!!! Creernos superiores y mejores!!! Fin de la Historia.

This Japanese wood carving inspired the 1971 film, 'Demon Claw'.

Like many horror films, its production was plagued with weird occurrences.

If you look very closely during the funeral scene, you'll notice the pigeons in the background acting a little strangely, and then exploding.
