The American Presidency Project

Harry S. Truman

XXXIII President of the United States: 1945-1953

32 - Statement by the President on the Veterans' Emergency Housing Program.

February 8, 1946

WHEN I CALLED Mr. Wilson Wyatt to Washington, I gave him only one instruction: to "make no little plans."

For five weeks Mr. Wyatt has been hard at work preparing his plans in consultation with all government agencies concerned and with the principal business, labor and veterans groups involved.

He has recommended a Veterans' Emergency Housing Program which is bold, vigorous and eminently practical. It has the complete and unqualified support of the Administration. All agencies of the government are directed to use every resource at their command to fulfill this program. The Budget Director has of course been asked to review the budget recommendations in the light of the new housing proposals.

I urge the Congress to enact promptly the legislation necessary to carry out the program.

I call upon every public-spirited organization to muster its forces behind the program. I ask each community leader, each citizen, to do his utmost to make the plans a reality in his community.

XLIII President of the United States: 2001 - 2009

Commencement Address at Concordia University Wisconsin in Mequon, Wisconsin

May 14, 2004

Thank you all very much. Dr. Ferry, members of the faculty, trustees, and families, distinguished guests, most importantly, members of the Class of 2004, I appreciate the warm welcome to this fine university and to this great State. Thank you for such a wonderful welcome. I am honored to be with you on graduation day as you become proud alumni of CUW.

I thank you as well for the honorary degree. I kind of like the sound, "Dr. Bush." [Laughter] I don't think Laura is going to call me that. [Laughter]

My congratulations to my fellow honorees today, especially General Vessey, a fine officer who served our country with distinction and honor.

I'm here today with one of your alumni, the Class of 2000. He can't rise for applause because he's working. But I want his parents to know he's doing a really fine job. And everyone at Concordia can be very proud of Officer Scott Eichstaedt of the United States Secret Service.

I am told that when the name of your commencement speaker was announced on April the 1st—[laughter]—a lot of students thought it might be an April Fool's Day joke. [Laughter] And some of you may still have doubts. I saw a person when I walked in, said, "Is it him, or is it the guy on 'Saturday Night Live'?" [Laughter]

All of you have worked hard and have come far, and you can always be proud of the achievement we mark today. Through it all, you've had a lot of fine people standing with you. This graduating class is a credit to the superb and caring teachers at Concordia. And today we also honor the people who believed in you and prayed for you and paid for you—[laughter]—the parents of the Class of 2004.

Many of today's graduates are on your way to full-time ministry, and that commitment is one of the greatest that a man or woman can make. All of the graduates leave Concordia with a commission and a calling. In the Lutheran tradition, all work—in an office, on a farm, in the home, or in the halls of government—should be done in the glory of God.










From 2/8/1946 ( Harry Truman - Statement by the President on the Veterans' Emergency Housing Program ) To 5/14/2004 is 21280 days

21280 = 10640 + 10640

Microsoft Outlook

Microsoft Outlook or Outlook (full name Microsoft Office Outlook since Outlook 2003) is a personal information manager from Microsoft, and is part of the Microsoft Office suite.

Although often used mainly as an e-mail application, it also includes a Calendar, Task Manager, Contact Manager, note taking, a journal and web browsing.

It can be used as a stand-alone application, but can also operate in conjunction with Microsoft Exchange Server and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server to provide enhanced functions for multiple users in an organization, such as shared mailboxes and calendars, Exchange public folders, Sharepoint lists and meeting time allocation.

New `Office' launch likely to improve Microsoft's outlook

STEVE LOHR New York Times

TUE 01/14/1997

HOUSTON CHRONICLE

NEW YORK - Bill Gates, chairman of Microsoft, will take the stage of Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center in Manhattan on Thursday to introduce "Office 97," the new version of the company's software bundle for office computing.

But the real star of the show, analysts say, will probably be a new application, called "Outlook," that has been added to the Office software suite, joining such popular programs as Word and Excel.

Outlook, analysts say, shows the progress Microsoft Corp. has made in linking its traditional products with the Internet, a key element in the company's effort to keep its sales rising rapidly.

And the new application, they add, also represents Microsoft's bid for leadership against rivals such as IBM and Netscape Communications in the fast-growing market for so-called groupware programs, which help employees work in collaborative groups.

Microsoft Developer Network

Outlook Object Model Overview

To develop add-ins for Microsoft Office Outlook, you can interact with the objects that are provided by the Outlook object model. The Outlook object model provides classes and interfaces that represent items in the user interface. For example, the Application object represents the entire application, the MAPIFolder object represents a folder that contains e-mail messages or other items, and the MailItem object represents an e-mail message.

This topic provides a brief overview of some of the main objects in the Outlook object model. For resources where you can learn more about the entire Outlook object model, see Using the Outlook Object Model Documentation.


VBA Object Model Reference

The VBA object model reference documents the Outlook object model as it is exposed to Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) code. For more information, see Outlook 2010 Object Model Reference.

All of the objects and members in the VBA object model reference correspond to types and members in the Outlook PIA. For example, the Inspector object in the VBA object model reference corresponds to the Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook.Inspector object in the Outlook PIA. Although the VBA object model reference provides code examples for most properties, methods, and events, you must translate the VBA code in this reference to Visual Basic or Visual C# if you want to use them in an Outlook add-in project that you create by using Visual Studio.

Automating Outlook from a Visual Basic Application

Office 2013

Because Microsoft Outlook supports Automation, you can control Outlook from any program that is written with Microsoft Visual Basic. Automation provides a standard method for one application to access the objects, methods, properties, and events of other applications that support Automation.

The Outlook object model provides all of the functionality necessary to manipulate data that is stored in Outlook folders, and it provides the ability to control many aspects of the Outlook user interface (UI).

To start an Outlook Automation session, you can use either early or late binding. Late binding uses either the Visual Basic GetObject function or the CreateObject function to initialize Outlook. For example, the following code sets an object variable to the Outlook Application object, which is the highest-level object in the Outlook object model. All Automation code must first define an Outlook Application object to be able to access any other Outlook objects.

Office Dev Center


Security Behavior of the Outlook Object Model

Office 2013

The Outlook object model includes entry points to access Outlook data, save data to specified locations, and send e-mails. These entry points are available to legitimate and malicious application developers alike. Versions of Outlook 98 and Outlook 2000 applied with the Outlook E-mail Security Update, and all subsequent versions starting from Outlook 2000 SP2 use the Object Model Guard to help protect users. The Object Model Guard warns users and prompts users for confirmation when untrusted applications attempt to use the object model to obtain e-mail address information, store data outside of Outlook, execute certain actions, and send e-mail messages. Although the Object Model Guard succeeds in identifying and protecting these entry points, two main issues exist that render the Object Model Guard rather unpractical:

The default circumstances that applications invoke the Object Model Guard in earlier versions of Outlook can result in excessive security prompting for legitimate applications.

The limitations of COM and Windows in identifying the specific application that is invoking the Object Model Guard have made it difficult for users to respond to the security prompts with certainty.

Adama: Why don't you talk to me, Lee?

Apollo: What do you want to talk about?

Adama: About anything. You've been here for an hour.

Apollo: Well, I don't have anything to say. My orders said, report here and participate in the ceremony, so I'm, I'm here. And I'm gonna participate in the ceremony. There wasn't, wasn't anything in my orders about having any heart-to-heart chats with the old man.

Adama: Accidents happen, in the service.

Apollo: Dad, listen, I-

Adama: You know, all the things you talked to me about the last time we were together-

Apollo: I really don't want to do this.

Adama: -at the funeral, they still ring in my ears after two years.

Apollo: Good! Good. Cause you know what? They were meant to.

Adama: Zack had a choice. You both did.

Apollo: "A man isn't a man until he wears the wings of a Viper pilot." Doesn't that sound at all familiar to you?

Adama: That's not fair, son.

Apollo: No, it's not fair. Because one of us wasn't cut out to wear the uniform.

Adama: He earned his wings, just like we all do.

Apollo: One of us wasn't cut out to be a pilot, one of us wouldn't have even made it into flight school if his old man, his daddy, hadn't have pulled some strings.

Adama: That's an exaggeration. I did nothing for him that I wouldn't have done for anyone else.

Apollo: You're not even listening to me. Why can't you get this through your head? Zack did not belong in that plane. He shouldn't have been there. He was only doing it for you. Face it, you killed him.

Adama: That'll be all, Captain.

(Apollo leaves)

(Back to Baltar's house)

Baltar: So now you're telling me, umm- Now you're telling me that you're a machine?

Six: I'm a woman.

Baltar: You're a machine. You're a synthetic woman. A robot.

Six: I've said it three times now.

Baltar: Well, forgive me, I'm having the tiniest bit of trouble believing that, because the last time anybody saw the Cylons, they looked more like walking chrome toasters.

Six: Those models are still around. They have their uses.

The American Presidency Project

Harry S. Truman

XXXIII President of the United States: 1945-1953

335 - Remarks at a Meeting of an Orientation Course Conducted by the CIA.

November 21, 1952

I AM appreciative of the privilege that General Smith has offered me, to come over here and make a few remarks to this organization. I am, naturally, very much interested in it.

When I became President--if you don't mind me reminiscing a little bit--there was no concentration of information for the benefit of the President. Each department and each organization had its own information service, and that information service was walled off from every other service in such a manner that whenever it was necessary for the President to have information, he had to send to two or three departments to get it, and then he would have to have somebody do a little digging to get it.

The affairs of the Presidential Office, so far as information was concerned, were in such shape that it was necessary for me, when I took over the Office, to read a stack of documents that high, and it took me 3 months to get caught up.

Only two people around the White House really knew what was going on in the military affairs department, and they were Admiral Leahy and Admiral Brown. I would talk to them every morning and try to get all the information I could. And finally one morning I had a conversation with Admiral Leahy, and suggested to him that there should be a Central Intelligence Agency, for the benefit of the whole Government as well as for the benefit of the President, so he could be informed.

And the Admiral and I proceeded to try to work out a program. It has worked very successfully. We have an intelligence information service now that I think is not inferior to any in the world.

We have the Central Intelligence Agency, and all the intelligence information agencies in all the rest of the departments of the Government, coordinated by that Central Intelligence Agency. This agency puts the information of vital importance to the President in his hands. He has to know what is going on everywhere at home and abroad, so that he can intelligently make the decisions that are necessary to keep the Government running.

I don't think anyone realizes the immensity of the problems that face a President of the United States.

It was my privilege a few days ago to brief the General who is going to take over the Office on the 20th day of January, and he was rather appalled at all that the President needs to know in order to reach decisions-even domestic decisions.

He must know exactly what is implied by what he does. The President makes a decision every day that can affect anywhere from 100 million to a billion and a half people. It is a tremendous responsibility.

And I don't think many of you realize the position in which this great country is, in this day and age.

We are at the top, and the leader of the free world--something that we did not anticipate, something that we did not want, but something that has been forced on us. It is a responsibility which we should have assumed in 1920. We did not assume it then. We have to assume it now, because it has again been thrust on us. It is our duty, under Heaven, to continue that leadership in the manner that will prevent a third world war-which would mean the end of civilization. The weapons of destruction have become so powerful and so terrible that we can't even think of another all-out war. It would then bring into the war not only the fighting men--the people who are trained as fighters-but the whole civilian population of every country involved would be more thoroughly exposed to death and destruction than would the men at the front.

That is what we have to think about carefully. You are the organization, you are the intelligence arm that keeps the Executive informed so he can make decisions that always will be in the public interest for his own country, hoping always that it will save the free world from involvement with the totalitarian countries in an all-out war--a terrible thing to contemplate.

Those of you who are deep in the Central Intelligence Agency know what goes on around the world--know what is necessary for the President to know every morning. I am briefed every day on all the world, on everything that takes place from one end of the world to the other, all the way around-by both the poles and the other way. It is necessary that you make that contribution for the welfare and benefit of your Government.

I came over here to tell you how appreciative I am of the service which I received as the Chief Executive of the greatest nation in the history of the world. You may not know it, but the Presidential Office is the most powerful office that has ever existed in the history of this great world of ours. Genghis Khan, Augustus Caesar, great Napoleon Bonaparte, or Louis XIV---or any other of the great leaders and executives of the world--can't even compare with what the President of the United States himself is responsible for, when he makes a decision. It is an office that is without parallel in the history of the world.

That is the principal reason why I am so anxious that it be a continuing proposition, and that the successor to me, and the successor to him, can carry on as if no election had ever taken place.

That is the prospect that we are faced with now. I am giving this President--this new President--more information than any other President ever had when he went into office.

You gentlemen--and ladies--are contributing to that ability of mine to be able to do that. I am extremely thankful to you. I think it is good that some of you have found out just exactly what a tremendous organization intelligence has to be in this day and age. You can't run the Government without it.

Keep up the good work. And when my successor takes over, I want you to give him just the same loyal service that you have given me, and then the country will go forward as it should.

Thank you very much.

Note: The President spoke at 12:27 p.m. in the Department of Agriculture Auditorium in Washington, to the final session of the Central Intelligence Agency's eighth training orientation course for representatives of various Government agencies.

Baltar: Prove it. If you're a Cylon, prove it to me right now.

Six: I don't have to. You know I'm telling the truth.

Baltar: See, stating something as the truth doesn't necessarily make it so, because the truth of the matter is, I don't believe a word of it.

Six: You believe me, because deep down you've always known there was something different about me. Something that didn't quite add up in the usual way. And you believe me because it flatters your ego, to believe that alone among all the billions of people of the Twelve Colonies, you were chosen for my mission.

Baltar: Your mission? What mission?

Six: You knew I wanted access to the defense mainframe.

Baltar: (stunned) Def- Wait a minute, the defense mainframe? What exactly are you saying?

Six: Come on, Gaius. The communications frequencies, deployment schedules, unlimited access to every database.

Baltar: Oh my god. (Thinks for a moment.) I had nothing to do with this. You know I had nothing to do with this.

Six: You have an amazing capacity for self-deception. How do you do that?

Baltar: How many people know? About me? Specifically, that I'm involved?

Six: Even now, as the fate of your entire world hangs in the balance, all you can think about is how this affects you.

Baltar: Do you have any idea what they'll do to me if they find out?

Six: They'd probably charge you with treason.

Baltar: Treason is punishable by the death penalty. This is unbelievable.

Six: What are you doing?

Baltar: I'm phoning my attorney.

Six: That won't be necessary.

Baltar: Yeah, he'll know what to do, he'll sort this out. He's the best in the business.

Thrace is being replaced in the slot by Lt. Anders. Also, we have, uh, Captain Lee Adama joining us, and he's going to be flying lead during the fly-by, so please, welcome, Captain.

(Clapping, scattered welcomes. Apollo nods at Helo and Boomer.)

CAG: Now thanks to Chief Tyrol and his deck gang, Captain, you're gonna have the honor of flying the actual Viper that your father flew almost forty years ago.

Apollo: (after a long pause) Great. That's... quite an honor.

The American Presidency Project

William J. Clinton

XLII President of the United States: 1993-2001

Remarks Announcing Steps To Make the Internet Family-Friendly

July 16, 1997

Thank you very much, Lois Jean, and thank you, Steve Case. Thank you, Mr. Vice President, for all the work you've done on this issue. And to Secretary Daley, Commissioner Varney, Deputy Attorney General Waxman, and the Members of Congress who had to go for a vote, I thank all of you for your interest. And thank you, all of you, who come here from the various companies, who were part of the Vice President's meeting this morning, and from other interested groups.

I think it's fair to say that history will evaluate the Internet as having sparked a revolution in information perhaps every bit as profound as the printing press. For today, at the click of a mouse, children can tap into the resources of the Library of Congress, to a great museum, communicate with classrooms around the world. I am particularly proud to point out that the Internet allows us now to journey beyond the Earth. Just since July 4, NASA's Mars Pathfinder website has received more than 27 million visits. And we are very proud of that and proud of NASA.

But we all know and we've heard the horror stories about the inappropriate material for children that can be found on the Internet. We know children can be victimized over the Internet. After the Supreme Court struck down the portion of the Communications Decency Act last month affecting this as an abridgement of free speech, we brought together industry leaders and groups representing teachers, parents, librarians to discuss where to go next.

This morning there was a discussion that I believe can fairly be said to have reached a consensus about how to pave the way to a family-friendly Internet without paving over the constitutional guarantees of free speech and free expression. The plan has three components: new technologies, enforcement of existing laws, more active participation of parents.

As you have heard already, with regard to technology, the computer industry is developing a whole toolbox full of technologies that can do for the Internet what the V-chip will do for television. Some of the tools are already widely in use, as Steve said. They give parents the power to unlock and to lock the digital doors to objectionable content. Now we have to make these tools more readily available to all parents and all teachers in America. And as new tools come on-line, we have to distribute them quickly, and we have to make sure that parents are trained to use them.

In an extremely adroit use of language in our meeting earlier, one of the leaders said, "Well, Mr. President, you've talked about how technologically inept you are; perhaps you would be our guinea pig as each new thing comes along, and then we could certainly certify that if you can figure out how to use it, anybody can." [Laughter] And so I sort of volunteered. Having been damned with faint praise, I enjoyed that.

[Laughter] But I think it is important—it is important to know not only that things exist but that they are being used and that they can be used. So we had a little laugh about what is a very serious element of this whole endeavor.

Today several industry leaders are taking major steps in this direction. I'm pleased to announce first that Netscape Communications has committed to add family-friendly controls to the next release of its popular Internet browser. Parents who use the Netscape browser to explore the Internet will be able to tell the browser precisely what types of materials they do not wish their children to see. Microsoft, which also offers a popular Internet browser, has already incorporated this technology. Therefore, with Netscape's pledge today, we now have assurance that 90 percent of all software used to explore the Internet will have family-friendly controls built right in. It's also important to note that all of the major companies that offer Internet service now provide some form of family-friendly controls. And I commend all of them for that.

For these controls to work to their full potential, we also need to encourage every Internet site, whether or not it has material harmful for young people, to label its own content, as the Vice President described just a few moments ago. To help to speed the labeling process along, several Internet search engines—the Yellow Pages of cyberspace, if you will—will begin to ask that all websites label content when applying for a spot in their directories. I want to thank Yahoo!, Excite, and Lycos for this important commitment. You're helping greatly to assure that self-labeling will become the standard practice. And that must be our objective.

Beyond technology, we must have strict enforcement of existing laws, the antistalking, child pornography, and obscenity laws as they apply to cyberspace. In the past 3 months alone, the FBI has expanded by 50 percent the staff committed to investigating computer-related exploitation of minors and established a task force to target computer child pornography and solicitation. In the past 6 months, the Department of Justice has increased the number of lawyers working in its Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section by 50 percent. We simply must not allow pornographers and pedophiles to exploit a wonderful medium to abuse our children.

And finally, we must recognize that in the end, the responsibility for our children's safety will rest largely with their parents. Cutting-edge technology and criminal prosecutions cannot substitute for responsible mothers and fathers. Parents must make the commitment to sit down with their children and learn together about the benefits and challenges of the Internet. And parents, now that the tools are available, will have to take upon themselves the responsibility of figuring out how to use them. I think it's fair to say that all parents will likely lag behind their children in facility on the Internet, but at least if we understand the tools that are available, it will be possible to do the responsible and correct thing.

Thanks to the talents, to the creativity, to the commitments of so many of you assembled today, we have now, therefore, a roadmap toward constructive steps for a family-friendly Internet. There is still a lot to do. Parent groups and educators must work to help hone our labeling systems so that they will actually screen out materials we don't want our children to see and, as others have said today, with equal energy help to highlight the materials that serve our children best. That is very, very important.

The Internet community must work to make these labels as common as food safety labels are today, to continue to expand access to family-friendly tools, including software to protect children's privacy from unscrupulous vendors. With a combination of technology, law enforcement, and parental responsibilities, we have the best chance to ensure that the Internet will be both safe for our children and the greatest educational resource we have ever known. And that is our common commitment, and for that, I thank you all very much.

NOTE: The President spoke at 12:45 p.m. in Room 450 of the Old Executive Office Building.

Einstein Chronology for 1905


June: Sends Annalen der Physik his special relativity theory paper, “On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies.” Received June 30, published 26 September.

Einstein paper outlines E=mc2, November 21, 1905

Suzanne Deffree -November 21, 2014

Albert Einstein's paper “Does the Inertia of a Body Depend Upon Its Energy Content?” was published in the journal "Annalen der Physik" on November 21, 1905.

The paper revealed the relationship between energy and mass that would eventually lead to the mass-energy equivalence formula E = mc2 (energy equals mass times the velocity of light squared).

Einstein was far from being the first to propose a mass-energy relationship but he was the first scientist to propose the E = mc2 formula and the first to interpret mass-energy equivalence as a fundamental principle that follows from the relativistic symmetries of space and time.

The paper was one of Einstein’s four Annus Mirabilis papers (from Latin annus mirabilis, "Extraordinary Year"). The papers were all published in the Annalen der Physik scientific journal in 1905.

In addition to “Does the Inertia of a Body Depend Upon Its Energy Content?” on the relationship between energy and mass, Einstein penned:

“On a Heuristic Viewpoint Concerning the Production and Transformation of Light," received March 18 and published June 9, which proposed the idea of energy quanta. Einstein was awarded the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect, which this paper contributed to.

“On the Motion of Small Particles Suspended in a Stationary Liquid, as Required by the Molecular Kinetic Theory of Heat," received May 11 and published July 18, which delineated a stochastic model of Brownian motion.

"On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies,” received on June 30 and published September 26, and which reconciled Maxwell's equations for electricity and magnetism with the laws of mechanics by introducing major changes to mechanics close to the speed of light. This later became known as Einstein's special theory of relativity.

SEATTLE (F-U Wire) - Microsoft Corporation announces plans to expand its historic outpost of insurrection in Bellevue, Washington. The City Of Bellevue welcomes the insurgency despite that Microsoft Corporation is actively working to overthrow the constitutional form of government in America.

City of Bellevue Mayor Grant Degginger admits that hundreds more Americans will be killed by Microsoft Corporation-sponsored terrorism, but “Hey, Microsoft is giving me a free Lexus to look the other way. Who can argue with that? The covert federal agent we tried to murder only wanted to give us a prison term for providing material support to terrorists.”

Dave Reichert - killer of federal agents


SEATTLE (F-U Wire) - When Death Squad leader Dave Reichert was asked for comment about trying to murder an undercover federal agent, he chuckled as he responded, “Sure, we knew he was undercover. Why do you think we were working so hard to get him killed? The insurgent leaders at Microsoft pay me to ensure they don’t get caught. Besides, Captain Ray is kind of over-rated, don’t you think? We’ve been watching his every move for over 8 years and he hasn’t killed a single one of us terrorists.”

This reporter questioned Dave Reichert about how long he could continue supporting Microsoft’s insurgency efforts. “Oh, quite indefinitely, I am certain. Look, Captain Ray has all that fancy education, Princeton, Oxford, Navy, and he can’t even put us in jail after 8 years. If my parents had been so rich, I could have gone to all those schools, too. ‘Top Gun,’ my ass. Give me all that training and I could have been great, too.”

VOLKER: OK. Well, we've got a couple of Gate addresses popping up ... Holy cow, do you see that?

(Suddenly there is the sound of engines outside Young's window. He turns and sees a familiar - and impossible - vessel flying alongside Destiny.)

YOUNG (into radio): Yeah, I do.

(Dale runs to another window to get a better view.)

VOLKER (into radio): That looks like our shuttle.

YOUNG (into radio): Yes, it does. Rush, this is Young. Meet me on the Bridge, now.

(As the shuttle continues to fly alongside, Young hurries to the Bridge.)

YOUNG: What's it doing?

VOLKER: Nothing. It's just matching our velocity off the right side.

YOUNG: Where did that thing come from?

VOLKER: I don't know! I mean, one minute it wasn't there, the next minute it was.

(Nicholas comes onto the Bridge, followed by Adam.)

RUSH: What's happened?

(Young points out of the window.)

YOUNG: Just came out of nowhere.

BRODY: Is that the shuttle?!

YOUNG: Yeah, seems like it.

(He looks round at Adam pointedly.)

BRODY: Uh, no, I wasn't drinking, I was fixing it.

(A man's voice comes over the comms.)

VOICE: Hello? Can anyone hear me? Hello?

(The men stare in amazement.)

RUSH: That sounds like Caine!

VOLKER: Caine's more monotone than that.

YOUNG: Yeah, he's also in another galaxy.

VOICE (sounding uncertain and bewildered): Hello? This is Robert Caine. Um, we can see the Destiny. What should we do?

YOUNG (to his crew): How?!

YOUNG (cynically): Was that before or after He gave them amnesia?

JOHANSEN: The others think that maybe the aliens discovered them and returned them to us as an act of benevolence.

YOUNG: Well, that's nice(!)

JOHANSEN: You're not buying it.

CAINE: Doctor Rush! Found you.

(He smiles happily at him and walks closer to the front windows.)

CAINE: Hey. I see we've come out of F.T.L. Anything interesting out there?

RUSH: Well, there's always something interesting out there.

CAINE: Yeah.

RUSH: I've just been going over the shuttle's navigational data, trying to figure out the path you took back to Destiny.

CAINE: And?

RUSH: Well, it seems you were there ... and then you were here. Nothing in between.

CAINE: I wish I could help you with that, but I fell asleep there and I woke up here.

RUSH: Yeah.

CAINE: Listen, I heard that you've learned what Destiny's original mission was.

RUSH: Yes, we have.

CAINE: In search of a message from the moment of creation?

RUSH: Oh, I don't know about "message". "Fingerprints" might be a better word - a sign that some intelligence may have had a hand in all of this.

CAINE: The hand of God?

(Nicholas laughs.)

RUSH: I don't know about that either, I'm afraid. I'm a scientist. I'd go so far as to call it evidence of an intelligence having existed prior to its own potential to exist.

CAINE: Ah, you just can't bring yourself to call it a miracle, can you?

Georges Claude

FRENCH ENGINEER

Georges Claude, (born Sept. 24, 1870, Paris, France—died May 23, 1960, Saint-Cloud) engineer, chemist, and inventor of the neon light, which found widespread use in signs and was the forerunner of the fluorescent light.

In 1897 Claude discovered that acetylene gas could be transported safely by dissolving it in acetone. His method was generally adopted and brought a wide expansion to the acetylene industry. Independently of the German chemist Carl von Linde, he developed a process for producing liquefied air in quantity (1902). Although he proposed the use of liquid oxygen in iron smelting as early as 1910, his suggestion was not adopted until after World War II.

While studying the inert gases, Claude found that passing electrical current through them produced light, and in 1910 he developed the neon lamp for use in lighting and signs. With the introduction of inner fluorescent coatings, the fluorescent light was developed and began to replace the incandescent lamp in industrial and certain home-lighting uses.

Claude also developed a process for the manufacture of ammonia in 1917 that was similar to the process developed by the German chemist Fritz Haber. In his efforts to find new sources of energy, he conducted experiments in producing electricity from the difference in temperature between the ocean floor and the surface.

WRAY: ... it's the last night; the night before you woke up inside the shuttle and Destiny was there.

CAINE: Yes. I remember.

WRAY: Tell me what you see.

(In flashback, Caine is visibly close to death as he gazes across the shuttle in despair.)

CAINE (on Destiny): It's very dark. There's no pain, just ... just the cold.

WRAY: Who else is there with you?

CAINE: Uh ...

(He shakes his head in distress as he sees the others sitting nearby in the shuttle, their eyes all closed.)

WRAY: What?

CAINE (on Destiny): They're all dead, frozen.

(He shudders in horror as he looks around the ship at his dead colleagues.)

CAINE (on Destiny): I'm alone.

WRAY: What are you doing?

CAINE (on Destiny): Nowhere for me to go.

(He sits silently in the shuttle with frost on his face, his expression hopeless.)

CAINE (on Destiny): Nothing to do now but pray.

(He jolts and opens his eyes, the hypnosis broken.)

CAINE: Next thing I remember is waking up on the shuttle and seeing Destiny out the window.

(He looks down and flexes his hands as if they're cold. Young walks closer to him.)

YOUNG: Is that all?

CAINE: I wish I had more answers for you.

YOUNG: Me too.

(He turns to walk away and Camille gets up to go and talk with him.)

CAINE: But you won't have to drop me off at the next planet, Colonel.

(They turn back to him.)

CAINE: I expect I'll be dead before you come back out of F.T.L.

WRAY: You don't know that.

CAINE: Yes, I do. Because now I remember something that no-one ever should.

(He sighs and looks up at the others, his face full of despair.)

CAINE: I'm already dead.

ELI'S ROOM. Vanessa comes to the doorway and holds up a Kino.

JAMES: Eli. You leave this in the shuttle?

WALLACE: No, why?

JAMES: Well, somebody did.

(She tosses it to him and he catches it. She walks away again.)

INFIRMARY. Camille and Young escort Caine into the room. T.J. is just pulling a sheet over the face of another of the Eden crew. Another covered body lies nearby.

JOHANSEN: They all died in their sleep.

CAINE: With symptoms of severe exposure?

JOHANSEN: Yeah. But I'm guessing whatever the aliens did to bring you back - it was only temporary.

WRAY: You're all just reverting back to the state they probably found you in.

JOHANSEN (to Caine): I'm sorry. I did everything I could think of.

(He forces a smile for her.)

CAINE: It's not your fault.

(Looking round at his dead colleagues, he sighs.)

CAINE: How much time do I have left?

JOHANSEN (softly): Not much.

CAINE: May I be allowed to see the stars one last time?

YOUNG: Yeah, of course. Go ahead.

(Caine suppresses a shudder and looks at T.J.)

CAINE: I would like very much not to be alone.

(T.J. glances across at her commanding officer, who looks unhappy but doesn't forbid her from going. She looks back to Caine and smiles softly.)

Shortly afterwards, with a blanket around him, Caine walks onto the Observation Deck with Tamara. He gazes in awe at the F.T.L. vortex ahead of him.

CAINE: Wow.

(The two of them walk to the front bench and sit down on it.)

CAINE: I forgot how beautiful this view was.

JOHANSEN: Maybe they were just giving you the chance to see it one more time, or to say goodbye to all of us.

CAINE: This isn't me - at least, not the man I was. That's what Doctor Rush was trying to tell me in his own way. I just didn't believe him.

CAINE: This body's nothing but a shadow - not reborn but reanimated, and not by God but by beings who can rebuild a man's body ... but not his soul.

(He gazes out at the vortex.)

CAINE: Maybe that's what you and Colonel Young were sensing.

(He pulls the blanket tighter around him as T.J. smiles a little and looks at him.)

JOHANSEN: I don't feel that way now.

(Shivering, he looks across at her.)

CAINE: It's kind of you to say. But even though I have his thoughts, and some of his memories, I'm not the Robert Caine that God made.

JOHANSEN: After all of this, you still believe?

CAINE: That is faith, T.J. I believe that my soul has already moved on and is looking down, even now, marvelling at how kind you are to comfort a shadow.

(He shivers again, and T.J. puts a gentle hand on his back.)

CAINE: You have to believe with all of your heart that your daughter is in a better place. The greatest gift that you can give her - and to all of us - is to live your life, to fulfil Destiny's mission, and have faith in each other.

(He smiles gently at her. She returns the smile through her tears, and the two of them turn and look out at the vortex again.)

Eli has watched the footage from the Kino found in the shuttle, and has called Young, Camille and Nicholas to his room to watch. They stand nearby as he sets the footage going again. Inside the shuttle the Kino turns to focus on Robert Caine sitting on the floor.

CAINE (weakly): If anyone's listening, help us.

(He pulls in an agonised breath as the Kino draws closer to him.)

CAINE: Help us. Please. I don't wanna die. Help.

(Behind him, a bright glow appears outside the front window. Gasping, Robert brushes aside the blanket covering his head and turns to look out of the window. The glow becomes brighter and envelops the entire ship, and the screen fills with white light.)

(The footage ends. Eli switches off the screen and turns to look at the others. Nobody speaks, all of them lost in their own thoughts.)

U.N. Inspectors in Standoff at Iraqi Ministry

July 07, 1992 From Reuters

BAGHDAD, Iraq — The head of a United Nations inspection team locked in a standoff with Iraqi authorities over access to a government ministry broke off her vigil Monday to inspect another site on the outskirts of Baghdad.

Team leader U.S. Army Maj. Karen Jansen took most of her 16-member group on an unannounced visit to the new site but left five inspectors in a car on guard outside Baghdad's Agriculture and Irrigation Ministry.

Nineteen hours after it began, there was no sign of a compromise in the standoff at the building--the first Baghdad ministry headquarters that U.N. inspectors have demanded to enter.

In Washington, the State Department deplored Iraq's stance and demanded immediate access to the building.

"Once again the government of Iraq is refusing to comply with United Nations Security Council resolutions," the State Department spokeswoman, Margaret Tutwiler, said.

"We deplore Iraq's failure to meet its obligations and emphasize that the Iraqi authorities must allow this inspection to proceed immediately," she told the regular briefing for reporters.

Jansen and her team, who are monitoring destruction of Iraq's chemical warfare manufacturing facilities, demanded access to the ministry on Sunday morning under U.N. Persian Gulf War cease-fire resolutions.

Employees were freely entering and leaving the building, and there was no sign of security forces or police in the area.

Before leaving for the new site, Jansen said she was waiting for a decision from New York on the next step in the standoff. The Security Council Monday demanded Iraq immediately permit U.N. inspectors to search the ministry for weapons information.

Iraqi officials say the ministry is a civilian institution unconnected with weapons of mass destruction, which the U.N. inspectors are empowered to destroy.

U.N.-Iraq Accord Ends Threat of Allied Strike : Persian Gulf: Baghdad agrees to allow reshuffled inspection team into Agriculture Ministry. Bush vows to keep up pressure on Saddam Hussein.

July 27, 1992 ART PINE and DOUGLAS JEHL TIMES STAFF WRITERS

UNITED NATIONS — The United Nations and Iraq on Sunday resolved their dispute over access to the Iraqi Agriculture Ministry, ending the threat of an allied air strike, but President Bush warned that the West will maintain pressure on Baghdad until it stops violating other U.N. resolutions as well.

The eleventh-hour agreement, announced jointly by Iraqi authorities and Rolf Ekeus, head of the U.N. commission charged with overseeing Iraq's disarmament, was essentially a face-saving measure for both sides, involving a modest reshuffling of the inspection team that Baghdad had barred before.

Ekeus and Iraq's U.N. ambassador, Abdul Amir Anbari, said the pact calls for the U.N. team to resume inspection of Iraq's weapons archives on Tuesday, with Ekeus present for the entry to the Agriculture Ministry building. The U.N. envoy left New York for Baghdad late Sunday.

But the accord left unanswered the question of whether the Iraqis had relocated some of the archives that the U.N. inspectors initially sought. And it did not even address other Iraqi cease-fire violations that the United States has criticized, such as the army's recent aerial bombings against Shiite Muslims in southern Iraq.

Bush, returning to the White House on Sunday evening after a weekend at Camp David, Md., grudgingly accepted the accord as a modest step forward.

During a brief press conference on the White House lawn, he contended that Iraqi President Saddam Hussein had "caved in" to U.N. demands "after a lot of bluster" and that the three-week-long standoff over the Agriculture Ministry "now has been resolved."

But Bush also made clear that the United States will not relax its pressure on Iraq until Hussein stops violating a spate of other U.N. resolutions. And he indicated that he would not withdraw the large U.S. military contingent that has assembled in the Gulf region over the past several days.

"Our argument is with Saddam Hussein--the bully, the dictator, the brutal merchant of death," Bush said. "Behavior along the lines of that we have just witnessed will not be tolerated." He added that until Hussein complies fully, "there'll be a lot of tension" between him and the West.

Besides the dispute over entry to the Agriculture Ministry, Bush also listed Iraq's refusal to negotiate over its post-Gulf War boundaries, to return Kuwaiti property and to end military attacks against the Kurdish and Shiite minorities.

The Administration has been contending for several days that Iraq has violated U.N. demands on a broad range of resolutions. Earlier Sunday, Brent Scowcroft, Bush's national security adviser, had described the Agriculture Ministry dispute as "just the tip of the iceberg."

As a result, senior Administration analysts predicted that the President is likely to order continued pressure on Iraq, both through stiffer enforcement of trade sanctions and through a far more visible allied military presence in the region, to embarrass Hussein.

One analyst conceded that, although the two sides seemed to have struck a compromise in Sunday's accord, the allies lost some face. "The Administration is going to have to come up with some stuff to make it work or the coalition is going to have problems and lose more ground to Saddam," he said.

It wasn't immediately clear how the President's response would play politically at home. The standoff did give the President a chance to play the role of a commander in chief. However, while the incident marked the fourth time since the end of the Gulf War that Hussein's defiance has pushed relations with the West to the brink of confrontation, he has yet to pay a military price.

At the same time, the President was in something of a box following the announcement of Sunday's accord. With Ekeus publicly declaring the crisis over, it would have been difficult politically for Bush to launch an air strike. Many Americans favor such action only with U.N. backing.

The narrowly drawn accord followed four days of intense negotiations between Ekeus and Anbari that involved numerous calls to Baghdad and left Ekeus plainly frustrated over the inadequacy of the Iraqi response. Even Sunday's assent arrived several hours later than expected.

In essence, the plan calls for replacing some members of the inspection team that previously was laden with Americans, British and French with weapons experts from countries that did not take part in the Persian Gulf War against Iraq in 1991.

Under the agreement, the Iraqis will allow a new six-member inspection team--made up of experts from Germany, Finland, Sweden, Switzerland and Russia--to enter the Agriculture Ministry building to identify the documents that it wants to examine.

The records then will be transported to a second site, where they will be reviewed by a group of weapons experts, apparently including two Americans. Five members of the earlier inspection team who were moved to Bahrain for their safety last week will be allowed to return to Baghdad.

U.N.-Iraq Accord Ends Threat of Allied Strike : Persian Gulf: Baghdad agrees to allow reshuffled inspection team into Agriculture Ministry. Bush vows to keep up pressure on Saddam Hussein.

July 27, 1992 ART PINE and DOUGLAS JEHL TIMES STAFF WRITERS

Ostensibly to accommodate Iraqi "sensibilities," the inspectors will not physically enter the private office of the Iraqi agriculture minister. Baghdad had complained that allowing foreigners to inspect a minister's office would be degrading and a violation of national sovereignty.

The accord also did not guarantee the safety of the inspectors in the weeks to come. One of the major elements in the Iraqi-U.N. dispute was that the inspectors had been subjected to violence and intimidation, apparently with the government's approval. The team eventually was forced to move out.

The standoff began July 5, when Iraq barred the U.N. inspectors from entering the Agriculture Ministry building. U.N. officials suspected that the structure was being used to house archives on Iraqi missiles and nuclear weapons production.

Under the provisions of the Gulf War cease-fire accord, U.N. inspectors have the right to examine any records they wish in an effort to ensure that Iraq no longer possesses missiles and other weapons of mass destruction, particularly those involving nuclear, chemical or biological warfare.

For all the satisfaction Iraqi officials expressed with the new accord, Hussein himself seemed to intensify his defiant rhetoric on Sunday, boasting in a radio address that the "mother of all battles"--the term he used for the Gulf War before he was defeated--is still not over.

He also met with his top military and political leadership--members of the Arab Baath Socialist Party and the Revolutionary Command Council--but no decisions were made public, according to a report by the state-run Iraqi News Agency.

The meeting, Hussein's third Cabinet session in the last three days, was clearly timed to weigh the possible consequences--including a threatened U.S.-led air strike--of Iraq's steadfast refusal to permit U.N. weapons inspectors inside Baghdad's Agriculture Ministry building.

Hussein's declaration, designed to shore up his image in the face of mounting pressure from the West, was almost identical to a similar brief speech he made shortly after his forces fled Kuwait during the allied ground offensive that ended the 1991 Persian Gulf War.

"May you be cherished by God, and may he keep the flag of the principles you fought for in the 'mother of battles' always hoisted," he said, in comments clearly meant for a domestic audience that had been told for weeks that any U.N. searches of the Agriculture Ministry would violate Iraq's sovereignty.

Hussein's boast that the "mother of all battles" is still not over drew a sharp rejoinder from Bush. The President told his news conference that "he'd better hope it's over" because Hussein had suffered humiliation by the West in the eyes of the Iraqi people.

Administration analysts were pensive over the implications of Sunday's compromise with Hussein. A senior Pentagon Mideast specialist said that while the standoff at the Agriculture Ministry had been defused, the West still will have to "find some way to get him to comply" on other issues.

U.N. Team Searches Iraqi Ministry : Inspections: Clues to weaponry sought as demonstrators march in Baghdad.

July 29, 1992 MARK FINEMAN TIMES STAFF WRITER

MANAMA, Bahrain — A team of U.N. weapons experts started a systematic, room-to-room search of the unassuming ministry building in downtown Baghdad that brought Iraq near the brink of war, as tens of thousands of Iraqis marched through the streets of their capital Tuesday shaking their fists and shouting, "Bush, Bush, listen with care! We all love Saddam Hussein!"

The chanting in the streets, backed by continued angry rhetoric against the United Nations and President Bush in Iraq's state-run media, initially alarmed the international team of nuclear, chemical and ballistic weapons inspectors, who arrived in Baghdad from Bahrain on a pre-dawn flight Tuesday morning.

But Iraqi authorities, who barred traffic from many downtown streets to permit the mass demonstration, prevented the marchers from reaching the Agriculture Ministry, site of the search. And the chairman of the special U.N. commission authorized to dispose of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction said later that the Iraqi leadership had promised to protect the safety of his team.

Chairman Rolf Ekeus, who led the small group of European inspectors into Iraq, told a news conference in Baghdad that the cease-fire agreements ending last year's Persian Gulf War allow U.N. searches in every room of any structure suspected of containing documents or equipment related to Iraq's ambitious weapons procurement program.

"We intend to use this right," he said, then quickly added, "but respect Iraqi sensitivity."

Iraqi police cordoned off the block surrounding the Agriculture Ministry as the search began, barring even the media from watching the exercise, which Ekeus had indicated would be over "very quickly," presumably within days.

The building had been left unobserved by U.N. personnel for a week after a previous, American-led team of U.N. experts abandoned an 18-day vigil outside the ministry. Pressed on the question of whether the inspectors might find anything of significance left there, Ekeus repeated that his team of "eminent experts" expects to find important leads to any weapons secrets that may have been removed during the week of crisis and negotiations.

"At this time, it's very important to ascertain and look for the traces," Ekeus told Cable News Network in an interview in Baghdad after the search team had entered the ministry. "I think we will be able to get at least some clues about what was in there."

But when asked whether the 11th-hour weekend compromise agreement that finally permitted Tuesday's search signaled a softening of the Iraqi position on an array of cease-fire controversies, Ekeus took a deliberately hard line. He called the ministry building standoff "a symbol of very serious obstruction from the Iraqi side--an outright breach of Iraq's obligations under the cease-fire and an unacceptable breach of the cease-fire."

A similar hard line was evident in the official Iraqi pronouncements that greeted Ekeus and his German-led inspection team in Baghdad on Tuesday morning, an indication that the threat of military confrontation last week has now become a war of words.

Reacting to Bush's virulent personal attack on the Iraqi leader Monday, when he called Hussein a "bully" and "a merchant of death," Abdel-Jabbar Mohsen, Hussein's press spokesman, called Bush a "tunnel-visioned charlatan."

Denouncing the United Nations, the West and specifically the United States for the fourth consecutive day in the ruling party newspaper, Al Thawra, Mohsen added that Bush "is rancorous, savage, barbaric and cursed."

Bonanza

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bonanza is an NBC television western series that ran from 1959 to 1973. Lasting 14 seasons and 431 episodes, Bonanza is NBC's longest-running western, and ranks overall as the second-longest-running western series on U.S. network television (behind CBS's Gunsmoke), and within the top 10 longest-running, live-action American series. The show continues to air in syndication. The show is set around the 1860s and it centers on the wealthy Cartwright family, who live in the area of Virginia City, Nevada, bordering Lake Tahoe.


Premise

The show chronicles the weekly adventures of the Cartwright family, headed by the thrice-widowed patriarch Ben Cartwright

The family lived on a 600,000+ acre (937+ square-mile) ranch called the Ponderosa on the eastern shore of Lake Tahoe in Nevada. The vast size of the Cartwrights' land was quietly revised to "half a million acres" on Lorne Greene's 1964 song, "Saga of the Ponderosa." The ranch name refers to the Ponderosa Pine, common in the West. The nearest town to the Ponderosa was Virginia City, where the Cartwrights would go to converse with Sheriff Roy Coffee


Bonanza was considered an atypical western for its time, as the core of the storylines dealt less about the range but more with Ben and his three dissimilar sons, how they cared for one another, their neighbors, and just causes. "You always saw stories about family on comedies or on an anthology, but Bonanza was the first series that was week-to-week about a family and the troubles it went through. Bonanza was a period drama that attempted to confront contemporary social issues. That was very difficult to do on television. Most shows that tried to do it failed because the sponsors didn't like it, and the networks were nervous about getting letters"
