Nothing, or extremely little. She is headed to better digs and much more freedom. She still has the option of her own United States Secret Service protection detail if she wants it. Mar-a-Lago in January certainly beats Washington DC or New York City when it comes to the cold and snow. First Ladies are very happy to leave the White House, with maybe the exception of Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton (I believe she was as well, but others don't). Most all of them describe it as a “well furnished prison,” and themselves as prisoners. Melanie will still have the use of Trump's Helicopters, and I imagine they are getting the Trump Air Boeing 757 out of storage and back on flight status. The aircraft continued to be used by The Trump Organization for executive trips until 2019, when it was repositioned to Newburgh-Stewart International Airport, where it has been placed in long-term storage. The left Rolls Royce RB-211 engine has been removed., After the election of Joe Biden as the new President of the United States, the aircraft is slated to return to service. Therefore, the aircraft is scheduled to be flown to Lake Charles, Louisiana for maintenance. , I'm confident it will move from its storage home in Orange County, New York to a facility in Florida. There has been much speculation about the state of the Trump's marriage, but I'm of the opinion that losing the election will help the marriage. Melania may well be the most beautiful first Lady in modern times; but she was also the least involved in modern times and that includes Betty Ford. It is like living in a glass house, or perhaps goldfish bowl. Original Question: What may Melania miss about the White House or life as FLOTUS? Why?
I witnessed a fatal accident of this manner before. Tow vehicle was a light duty SUV ( Nissan Pathfinder ) and they were towing a much heavier Ford F-150 4x4 in this manner. We were behind said vehicles as we approached a steep bridge and promptly passed it and put distance between us and good thing we did because when they started coming down the bridge they had neither the weight or brakes necessary to control the load ( especially since it was being towed backwards ) Think pendulum effect, the heavy engine block started getting the towed vehicle swaying wildly side to side until it slammed into the bridge and came to a rest blocking both West bound lanes on the 2–10 Bridge over the Calcasieau River in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Several vehicles slammed into them and one even flipped over the divider and came to a rest upside down in the east bound lanes. We stopped to render what little assistance we could but little could be done for the 1st car that impacted them as they were hit from behind as well. Had we not had a gut feeling and passed this tow caravan we would have been that car, so I thank God for my life every time I cross that bridge or see some people stretching the limits of physics or common sense while towing. As for the moron towing the truck 2000 pounds heavier than his tow vehicle he was just fine aside from some bumps and bruises.
I’m not an expert in cars but I’ve studied a few business models and I can see what is happening. A few years ago if you wanted to buy a book, you went to your local book store and you found a copy and you bought it. Then an idea came called the internet and it up changed this traditional approach and suddenly if you want a book, which is technically nothing more than characters on a page you could pay to download all those characters to a device you already had. The result was the book stores went out of business and those that use the new model have succeeded. The electric car is the beginning of the same trend. The reality is electric cars have been around since the 1980’s but only in the past decade have they become powerful enough and affordable enough to be used as the primary means of transportation. At the moment the cost of an all electric vehicle is where only the upper levels of the market can afford one. There hasn’t been enough time for a high number of these to enter the used car market either. However as more and more people want an all electric vehicle the cost of these will come down. This is simple economics. The companies such as Ford, GM, Chrysler, etc will have to adapt or they will find themselves loosing market share to new start up companies and possibly shutting down. Also companies such as Exxon, Mobile, BP, etc will have to find alternate means to sell their products as fuel will become less and less of a demand. My prediction is by the year 2040 at least half of the cars on the road will be electric and by 2050 it will be closer to 90%. However there will still be a need for fuel powered vehicles such as long haul trucks which carry heavy cargo long distances. This is where the traditional manufactures will find the opportunity to keep their companies operating. However there will be one side effect of all of this I don’t see many people talking about. As people will be charging up their cars at night the power stations will have to deliver more and more power to peoples homes. Thus the peak time to use power will be the over night hours when most people are asleep. This is going to put a huge burden on the power grid as the need for power stations and generators is going to greatly increase. When a form of energy is transferred from one form to another something somewhere has to burn. This is basic physics. The traditional forms of coal, and oil are still the most common and they release a large amount of carbon into the atmosphere. Thus what we would have released from the tail pipes of our cars will simply be moved to a smokestack. Now there has been a shift in recent years to develop clean forms of energy such as solar, wind, and water power. These so called “clean” forms of energy are not as efficient as fossil fuels and the reason why solar and wind plants have to be very large. Water powered plants can only be located in places where there are large running rivers and lakes. Building a water based plant and can greatly disrupt a local area as lakes and rivers get dammed up. There is also the nuclear power option but that comes with many long term issues as well, not to mention the possibility of a major accident. The burden to have a clean burning system is no longer going to be on the general population but on the power plants and this is going to get more and more expensive. While we might save a couple hundred dollars a month on the cost of gasoline, we may find our electric bills have risen by an equal if not greater amount just to keep the plants working and running clean.
On this day in 1898 the pre-dreadnaught battleship USS Oregon stood at anchor off Jupiter Inlet, Florida, ready for battle in the Spanish-American War. Her sister battleship, the Maine, had blown up in Havana Harbor in mid-February, and she had been ordered to depart San Francisco to join the war. After provisioning, she departed the West Coast beginning on 19 March, arriving sixty-six days later following a voyage of 14,000 nautical miles (16,000 miles) around Cape Horn at the southern tip of South America. Sixty-six days was impressive. After all, the fastest recorded voyage of a clipper ship back in Gold Rush days had been 89 days, 7 hours New York Harbor to San Francisco Bay by ,The Flying Cloud,. Still… in terms of war staging… Soon after Columbus’s voyages, Europe was exploring for shortcuts through the Americas to the riches of China and India, including the ,Northwest Passage,. A route across the Isthmus of Panama was discussed as early as the 16th century. And here’s why. Going around South America is a bitch, not even counting the fact that there are a lot of ships at the bottom of the ,Strait of Magellan, or, choosing your poison, the Drake Passage around Cape Horn. The Oregon’s voyage would’ve been cut to much less than half, a fact that had been generating significant discussion and planning since the opening of the ,Suez Canal, in 1867 dramatically cut the Europe-to-India route and demonstrated the engineering feasibility. President U. S. Grant ordered a survey of possible canal routes in 1870. Strategically speaking, such a canal would significantly increase the deterrent force of the US Naval Fleet, whichever ocean it happened to be in—no more two-month-plus repositioning voyages. When the French threw up their hands attempting to complete the canal, in 1902 Teddy Roosevelt saw to the purchase of the Panama Canal Zone. When the canal was completed in August of 1914, it was mere years from putting design pressure on shipbuilding. New classes of battleships and carriers were kept to the 106-foot beam the Canal locks could handle. Finally, late in World War II, the US began building Midway-class carriers with a beam wider than the Canal could handle. When I first transited the Panama Canal in 1970 aboard the USS Calmar, this expansion project had begun 31 years earlier in 1939 in anticipation of such larger ships. But it was promptly shelved with our involvement in the war. With the full handover of the Canal to Panama in 1999, the expansion became a priority for the simple reason that the increased capacity stands to increase the revenue generated eight-fold. When traffic was high in the Canal, the WWII-generation cargo ships I worked on would sometimes go through the locks two-abreast, perhaps with a private sailboat or two in with us. Transiting the Canal involves a set of Turns in Gatun Lake and Reaches once you get to the Culebra Cut (which was called the Gaillard Cut in my day—and I only ever once, in eight transits, had to stand a wheel watch through the Cut, which requires paying attention). The Culebra Mountains, which represent the continental divide, were the tough engineering nut to crack. Gatun Lake was created by damming the Chagres River. There are three locks, the Gatun Locks, between Limon Bay and Gatun Lake on the Atlantic side. The Pedro Miguel Lock separates the Cut from Lake Miraflores, then, at the other end of the lake, the two Miraflores Locks let you down to the Gulf of Panama. With five complete naval fleets stationed around the world (plus a specialty cyber fleet), the Panama Canal long ago ceased to be strategically critical to the US, though our current Nimitz-class and pending Ford-class carriers will now be able to transit the canal. It is economically critical for commercial shipping. As for environmental implications, I do recall a mate on one ship explaining to me the protocols for dumping ballast tanks, replacing with fresh lake water, then dumping again once in the other ocean as a means of minimizing transfer of marine organisms from one ocean to the other, but I do not recall in detail. Most of the (relatively minor) environmental concern seems to be over President Obama’s initiative to expand ports and deepen channels in the US to handle the larger ships that will be transiting. There have been lawsuits over the Panama expansion project, mostly from European interests and mostly concerning cost overruns, but of little consequence. The main impacts seem to be an economic boom for the nation of Panama and a boon for shipping.
With the turn of the 1900s, Germany was perfectly poised to become the greatest superpower in written history -- one of the most industrialized nations at the time (next to UK and Argentina) paired with the biggest military for the following 50 years. The German empire and territories would soon give birth to an overwhelming portion of future Nobel Laureates and many of the greatest minds of the 20th century including Max Born, Hans Bethe, Alexander Grothendieck, Bernard Katz, Henry Kissinger, Madeleine Albright, Walter Kohn, Hans Adolf Krebs, Charles Proteus Steinmetz, and ,Albert Einstein,. All of these people would be forced to flee the Third Reich. Where would they go? Well… United States is universally renown for its ,universities, — its Princetons, Stanfords, and CMUs — and ,industry giants, today like Apple, Google, YouTube, WhatsApp, Instagram, Dropbox, and Uber; as well as Sun Microsystems, Intel, Yahoo!, IBM all the way to Pfizer, Procter & Gamble, AT&T, Goldman Sachs, eBay, United States Steel, Ford, and General Electric. Albert Einstein,, fleeing Germany, would find refuge at Princeton and change the world forever in many ways. On the eve of WW2, he penned a letter to President Franklin D. Roosevelt which would establish the Manhattan Project. There, future Nobel Laureates ,Hans Bethe, and ,Enrico Fermi,, a refugee from Italy, ran the labs that invented the atomic bomb to end WW2 for the United States. 30% of ,American-based ,Nobel laureates are refugees and first-generation immigrants. Abdul Fattah Jandali, is a political migrant from Homs, a city now destroyed by the Syrian Civil War. Jandali started university at the American University of Beirut, but protests ultimately forced him to flee Lebanon. He finished his degree at Columbia University in the US and continued to a Economics PhD at Wisconsin University. There he met and dated ,Joanne Carol Schieble,, a German-Swiss Catholic. She became pregnant, and they put their child up for adoption in San Francisco. The couple that adopted their baby named him ,Steve Jobs,. In the late 1960s, ,Michael and Eugenia Brin, left USSR to escape anti-Semitism with their son. Michael Brin became a professor at the University of Maryland, and Eugenia Brin became a research scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. Their son, ,Sergey Brin,, received a NSF fellowship that took him to Stanford University. He met Larry Page; the duo became fast friends and transformed information technology. Google was born with an investment of $100,000 by Stanford alum and Sun Microsystems co-founder ,Andy Bechtolsheim,, a German immigrant. Steve Chen,, born in Taiwan, founded YouTube. ,Jan Koum, from Ukraine founded WhatsApp. Brazilian ,Mike Krieger, founded Instagram. ,Arash Ferdowsi,, Dropbox founder, is an Iranian-American. ,Travis Kalanick,, Uber founder, was born to Polish and Russian Jewish immigrants. ,Andrew Grove,, born in Hungary, founded Intel. ,Jerry Yang, from Taiwan founded Yahoo!, ,Herman Hollerith, from Germany founded IBM, and ,Charles Pfizer, and ,Charles Erhart, from Germany founded Pfizer. AT&T? ,Alexander Graham Bell, from Scotland; P&G? ,William Procter, from England and ,James Gamble, from Ireland; Goldman Sachs? ,Marcus Goldman, from Germany. ,Pierre Omidyar,, France, founded eBay. Scottish American ,Andrew Carnegie, founded US Steel as well as Carnegie Mellon University. Irishman ,William Ford, and ,Mary Ford,, daughter to Belgian immigrants, raised ,Henry Ford, who in turn founded the Ford Motor Company. General Electric's ,Thomas Edison, was born to a Canadian father. Walt Disney, Amazon, Boeing, Citigroup, Kroger, Costco, Home Depot, Walgreen, State Farm Insurance, Lockheed Martin, Oracle, McDonalds — the list goes on and on and on. More than 40% of Fortune 500 companies were founded by immigrants or their children., These companies employ more than 19 million people globally with combined revenues of $4.8 trillion (2014) for the United States. ,This figure exceeds the GDP of every country in the world except the U.S., China, and Japan., Immigrants are twice as likely to start a new business than non-immigrants. Seven of the ten most valuable brands in the world come from American companies founded by immigrants or children of immigrants. [,http://www.renewoureconomy.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/NAE_Entrepreneurship.pdf,] A Luo boy was born on the shores of Lake Victoria outside Kendu Bay, British Kenya in 1936. As he grew up, he traveled widely — visiting Europe, India, and Zanzibar — and became a cook for missionaries and a local herbalist in Nairobi. In 1960, he attended the University of Hawaii where he met and dated Stanley Ann Dunham, an American woman. Their son, ,Barack Obama,, would become the seventh US president with immigrant parents — a lineage that includes ,Thomas Jefferson,. Stanford Professor ,Maryam Mirzakhani, was born in Iran in 1977. Twenty-two years later, she started her PhD at Harvard University. At thirty-seven, she became the first woman to win the Fields Medal -- the highest honor in mathematics -- putting her in a very small circle that includes ,Terence Tao,, an Australian-American mathematician. Harvard Professor ,Pardis Sabeti, was born in Iran in 1975 and left before the Iranian Revolution. Sabeti pioneered the use of genetic sequencing to track and monitor Ebola during its 2014 outbreak; she established critical measures to control the virus and prevent future epidemics. For 36 years, Iranian-American ,Firouz Naderi, served the U.S. government at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. There, he led the deployments of the Spirit and Opportunity rovers to Mars. For his contributions to advancing space exploration, Naderi received NASA's highest honor -- the Distinguished Service Medal. South African ,Elon Musk, builds on the Martian dream with his work at SpaceX. In his biography, answering why he chose to move to the US, Musk says, ,"The United States is definitely ahead in culture of innovation. If someone wants to accomplish great things, there is no better place than the U.S." This is absolutely correct. But let us imagine a slightly different world. A world where Maryam Mirzakhani and Pardis Sabeti are Canadian professors; where Apple and Google are Canadian companies; where Carnegie Mellon University and the mass production of automobiles were founded in Canada; and so were YouTube, WhatsApp, Instagram, Dropbox, Uber, Sun Microsystems, Intel, Yahoo!, IBM, Pfizer, Procter & Gamble, AT&T, Goldman Sachs, eBay, Boeing, Citigroup, Kroger, Costco, Home Depot, Walgreen, State Farm Insurance, Lockheed Martin, Walt Disney, Oracle, Amazon, McDonalds, and innumerable other now Canadian companies. Imagine ,Satya Nadella,, ,Sundar Pichai,, and ,Vinod Khosla, running Canadian internet giants. That is the world this picture shows. For our entire history, our country has been defined by welcoming when other nations oppressed. The most American thing is ,unconditional love, — love that ended wars; love that helped build everything from YouTube and Instagram to McDonalds and Disney; love that uncovered new laws of physics, advanced the frontiers of space, and saved countless millions of lives on earth. The most American thing ever is exclaiming boldly and unyieldingly, ,"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free; the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me." The homeless. The tempest-tost. The huddled masses yearning to breathe free. Those were the ,greatest minds of the last century, who came and helped transform America into the global center of innovation from technology and politics to sciences and the arts. That is our American brand. That is true greatness. Let’s make America great again.

First you have to understand Louisiana. Louisiana was one of the last Southern states to go red. Democrats ran Louisiana for a very long time, even as the south was turning red. Louisiana always had a dividing line, with the northern part of the state typically voting republican while the southern half voted democrat. And with the population base of the state located along the I-10 corridor that runs through the southern half of the state (New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Lafayette, and Lake Charles), they held sway. Save for 1968 when George Wallace was king of the south and as an independent won Louisiana in a big way. But Louisiana has been wishy washy too. While they elected Nixon, they did not vote for Ford. Reagan won narrowly in 80, but comfortably in 84. We voted for HW Bush narrowly, then for Clinton comfortably in 92, and in a landslide in 96. It’s been straight republican since then. For state politics, it’s not been that cut and dry. When Dave Treen took office in 1980, he was the first republican governor of Louisiana since Reconstruction. Even since then, while the rest of the south was voting red, Louisiana has not had consecutive republican governors. As for Mr. Edwards, he’s kind of a throwback to the old Blue Dog Democrats. He’s a centrist politically, fiscally conservative to a point. He’s military, West Point graduate, so he’s respected for that. He’s pro-life, which helps tremendously in this part of the bible belt. And, to be honest, it didn’t hurt that he had the confluence of two horrendous republican gaffes. First, he was succeeding Bobby Jindal, one of the most disliked governors in history. Jindal was hated even by the most staunch conservatives. So there was a strong distaste for the wonky policies of Jindal and the party at that time. Also, the republican candidates they ran against him were incredibly poor. In 2015, it was deposed Senator David Vitter. Vitter was going to be a lock to become the governor until his name ended up on the list of the DC Madam, and issue that came up in a big way during his campaign for the office. Vitter was not a well liked candidate. In 2019, the candidates were really not popular names and were only buoyed by marginal support from their own party. Ralph Abraham and Eddie Rispone both ran neck and neck through much of the race, with then-President Trump supporting both and either over the Democratic candidate. That and the co-endorsement of both from the Republican party of Louisiana really made it such that neither candidate got much support. It was just R over D, with little to no substance from either candidate. The 2019 election was closer than the 2015, but simply because R over D. Edwards beat them both in the primary, then defeated Rispone in the runoff; even with visits from Trump. Ironic, because the total of the votes for the two republican candidates was enough to defeat Edwards, but in the runoff, they didn’t combine those votes; some voters simply went to Edwards after their candidate lost. And more voters turned out for the runoff than the general. Not enough negative could be said about the job Edwards did in his first four years. It also helps that Louisiana has what’s called a jungle primary, where all the candidates run against each other, majority vote wins. If anyone wins a majority of the vote in the primary, it’s their office. If not, the two highest vote getters meet in the runoff, regardless of party affiliation. There’s no party nomination of a candidate or anything like that. This also helps a popular candidate get elected or re-elected.

Question from ,Charles Tiranno,—Thanks Charles! ^ Arches National Park, Utah — TripAdvisor ~~~~ Q. When you own a Tesla car, are you able to go on a cross country trip as easily as a gas car, retaining the same level of flexibility to go where you want, when you want? For example, if I want to see a bunch of national parks. A. For me: Yes, no problem so far. I have done more than 20,000 miles of road trips in my Tesla. It is much nicer road tripping in the Tesla than in my Subaru or my Ford Truck. My Tesla is a Long Range model—it would be harder in a Standard Range model. There are Superchargers where I want them in all areas of the 14 states where I usually travel: CO, TX, IN, UT, NM, NV, LA, MS, NE, KS, IA, MO, IL, AZ. DETAILS It depends on where you are going and if you absolutely want a supercharger in every location. That said—I have traveled to many National Parks, State Parks, and remote sites of geological interest in my Tesla with no inconvenience. I have used Superchargers for every single trip—never needing a slower charging option. I note that one answer here from Quora friend ,Dean Pannell ,says there are no Superchargers serving Big Bend National Park in Texas. I agree—that one is tough—a great example—very difficult, very risky. Here is a link to a site that reviews a trip to Big Bend in a Model 3: “Finally I saw the Supercharger in the distance. I glided in with 0%, getting 347 mi out of a battery rated for 310mi.” Tesla Model 3 Maiden Voyage - Big Bend National Park TX - Maiden Voyage Comment from ,Jim Murphy,: “Lots of places, including Big Bend in Texas, are easy to get to. But hard to get back from on the same day. There are plenty of places to plug into a NEMA 14–50 outlet and get a full charge overnight. Plugshare map and user reviews show resorts where you can rent a room and also, if it's not too crowded, park at an associated RV spot to plug in for no extra charge.” Before you leave for some exotic location…maybe spend some time on the site above, or one like it—it will give detailed answers to your questions about visiting the sights. MORE DETAILS I am a rock hound and amateur geologist/mineralogist/paleontologist. I have made many expeditions far from the beaten path in my Tesla. Lots of remote desert areas. There are certainly still some locations that would be harder to visit, where I would have to charge at an RV park. But all locations I have wanted to visit have been near a Supercharger. Here are some of the places I found easy to visit in my Tesla: Arches National Park, Utah (Supercharger in Moab) Garden of the Gods, Colorado Lake Travis, Texas Cataract Falls State Recreation Area, Indiana Caballo Lake State Park, New Mexico Colorado National Monument, Colorado New Mexico Spaceport, New Mexico Palo Duro Canyon State Park, Texas John C. Stennis Space Center, Mississippi Very Large Array, Socorro, New Mexico Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado Capulin Volcano National Monument, New Mexico Crestone Hot Springs, Colorado Elephant Butte Lake State Park, New Mexico (Supercharger in Truth or Consequences) San Antonio River Walk & The Alamo, Texas John Wesley Powell River History Museum & Green River State Park, Utah (There is a Supercharger right there) Rockhound State Park, Deming, New Mexico o
