Sputnik I—The Beeps Heard Round The World

by Christopher R. O’Deavia Military History in the News
Thursday, October 10, 2019

The Space Age opened in October 1957 when the Soviet Union’s Sputnik I became the first satellite to orbit the earth. Launched during the International Geophysical Year, Sputnik I orbited earth every 96 minutes for 21 days, traveling more than 40 million miles as it transmitted a steady beep signal that was soon recorded and broadcast to American radio listeners. The satellite itself was visible to viewers in the United States during dawn and twilight, providing directly observable evidence that the United States—for the moment at least—was trailing its chief geopolitical rival in the emerging technology that would define the balance of power in an era of nuclear stand-off.

A Harvard Law Professor Examines The Hoffa Case To Make Amends

featuring Jack Goldsmithvia Law & Liberty
Friday, October 11, 2019

In Hoffa’s Shadow is a memoir of growing up, a reinvestigation of one of the most notorious murders in American history, and a reflection on Jimmy Hoffa’s effect on the labor movement. The first two aspects are linked by the extraordinary fact that the author is the stepson of the man most often accused of driving Hoffa to his death. The book is even more noteworthy by virtue of the not less extraordinary fact that the author is also a distinguished law professor, Jack Goldsmith of Harvard University.

Future Development Reads: Teachers In Poor Countries, Human Capital Investments, And Tips For Disseminating Research

quoting Eric Hanushekvia Brookings Institution
Friday, February 23, 2018

A new paper by Justin Sandefur, senior fellow at the Center for Global Development, tells some inconvenient truths about teachers in poor countries: First, they are relatively well paid (the highest ratio of teacher salary to GDP per capita is in the Central African Republic). Second, their pay does not seem to have much to do with their qualifications or teaching performance. For example, public school teachers are paid about twice as much as their private-school counterparts with the same qualifications.

Immigration: System Is The Problem

quoting Victor Davis Hansonvia The Observer
Friday, February 23, 2018

I grew up in Yakima, Washington, and worked summer jobs in orchards with a largely Hispanic crew back when teenagers could work in the fields. My father was a produce dealer in the Yakima valley, an agricultural area with a large population of both legal and illegal Hispanic immigrants. My experience showed me that they are much like us. There are cultural differences, but most shared our values of family, faith and hard work. However, like my family, they too had some “bad apples.”

No plague in history spread with the speed of internet disinformation. We live in an age of hyper-charged propaganda, an onslaught of lies more pervasive than any that came before. Over millennia, propaganda changed minds. Today, it changes governments and subverts institutions. And this flood has burst the dams that, for centuries, kept the foulest waters in check.
