There were some high-level discussions in Britain when the RAF committed to bombing cities in 1941-42. Some scientists argued that not only was bombing incapable of causing catastrophic economic damage to Germany, but the morale effects were unlikely to match anticipations. This was based on a survey of residents of (I think) Birmingham and Hull, who were hit heavily during the Blitz, and their resilience. There was also discussion of the effects of bombing in Abyssinia, of Japan in China, and in Spain. Most subsequent discussion revolved around the anticipated effects on the war effort, but in the minutes of a high-level meeting in November 1942, we find this argument:

“There was, however, one strong argument in favour of this heavy air offensive which had not yet been mentioned; piecemeal devastation of German cities would bring the horrors of home to the German people in a way that had not hitherto been possible. They might in this way be made to realise that aggression did not pay.”

That sort of argument would tend to negate the importance of the British experience. Of course, these questions have been debated for many decades, and the general consensus seems to be that British bombing policy was mainly a function of prewar doctrines anticipating the devastating effects of bombing, which were entrenched in the politics of the RAF as an independent service; and in the imperative to show support to the Soviets. Updated studies of the effects of bombing would generally have been subordinated to those established motivations.

In the American case, I’ve run into a July 1945 study by political scientist NIKE Womens Wmns Air Force 1 Ultraforce Mid Black/BlackWhite 65 US 5V2So6
, “Historical Studies of Casualties,” which attempted to correlate casualty counts with capitulation in historical wars. Wright had already published a macro-historical comparative study of wars in 1942, A Study of War . I’m pretty sure this sort of study was inconsequential for policy, but it suggests that, at this time, the social-political dynamics of war were considered a pressing, unresolved problem, certainly academically.

In a notorious incident, the RAND Corporation later studied the circumstances of capitulation , including under what circumstances the US might consider capitulation – when this was learned by Congress, there were moves to defund the Air Force’s RAND contract.

Anyway, these are all isolated data points in a much larger picture of historical thought that remains to be synthesized. But it seems like something that can be profitably brought into the picture here.

On your point about whether, by issuing a demonstration, the US would have been delineating an ethical line, which they might later be forced to cross in an indefensible way, I don’t quite see things the same way.

My sense has always been that the US-British response to the style of war in World War II – and particularly direct attacks on civilians – was that this kind of war was immoral, but that it had become necessary to avoid greater evil.

Look, I know we cover a lot of the bad types of weather here. Wildfires, droughts, extreme cold, hurricanes. But allow me to make it up to you with some Good Weather. Snow in Sahara? Yes, please.

On Sunday, snow fell in one of the most unlikely places on Earth. Ain Sefra, an Algerian town in the Sahara Desert, got a couple inches of the white stuff. It clung to the dunes for an hour and a half before melting. The Atlas Mountains that ring the town saw snow stick around a bit longer according to Zinnadine Hashas, a local photographer who captured the scenes.

The town is not exactly a snow magnet at 1,000 meters (3,280 feet) above sea level. The average low in January is 12.4 degrees Celsius (54 degrees Fahrenheit) according to records from the German weather service . Heck, it’s not even a precipitation magnet. Ain Sefra picks up a grand total of 6.65 inches of precipitation a year on average, putting it well under the threshold of 10 inches a year scientists generally use to classify a place as a desert.

But over the weekend, the Algerian weather service issued a rare snow warning for the western part of the country forecasting 10-15 centimeters (4-6 inches) of snow. And on Sunday night, its forecast came to bear.

A blast of cold air associated with a low pressure system spiraling over the western Mediterranean brought rare snow the town and surrounding dunes and mountains. A similar pattern brought snow there last year, too. Before that, the only other recorded snowfall in the region occurred in February 1979 , though the highest reaches of Algeria do receive snow every few years.

Now, some troll on the internet will probably use this as an excuse to make a joke about global warming. To which I say the usual: it can and will sometimes snow in odd places, even in a warming world . I could go on to talk about the fact that the planet just had its second- or third-warmest year on record or the record cost of weather and climate disasters in the U.S. or...you know what, screw it. Let’s just look at some cool pictures and save the arguing for another day (tomorrow).

CSU requirements should be the same for transfers as for students who begin at CSUs. That would be more fair for all students.

This sentence jumped out at me as crucial, yet nothing in this article explains why it is true: “About 80 percent of African Americans required to take more than one remedial class in math do not complete their math requirements within six years, compared to 67 percent of Hispanics and 61 percent of whites…” Is this also the case in other academic areas?

We ran a pilot program in conjunction with a local community college using the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching's Statway curriculum at the high school where I teach this year to allow students to complete their collegiate statistics class while still in high school. Think of the course as an 'AP' class for students who have struggled with math. These students are now on the path to a college degree. … Read More

We ran a pilot program in conjunction with a local community college using the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching’s Statway curriculum at the high school where I teach this year to allow students to complete their collegiate statistics class while still in high school. Think of the course as an ‘AP’ class for students who have struggled with math. These students are now on the path to a college degree. Statway built their confidence in their math abilities, opened the door to a college degree and did not close the door on a STEM career, if the student so chooses to study more math in the future.

Rethinking where statistics goes in the order is definitely worthwhile, and it's such a different style of math that it is completely credible that kids who struggle with algebra may find that they can be successful with statistics. One thing that has changed significantly since I took it is that modern computer power makes what were once difficult and laborious and time-consuming problems in statistics much easier to solve.

Rethinking where statistics goes in the order is definitely worthwhile, and it’s such a different style of math that it is completely credible that kids who struggle with algebra may find that they can be successful with statistics. One thing that has changed significantly since I took it is that modern computer power makes what were once difficult and laborious and time-consuming problems in statistics much easier to solve. Statistics really needs large data sets to fully explore the meaning, and Back In My Day it was infeasible for a student to work with more than say a dozen data points and hand calculate results. If the student made even one simple arithmetic error over the set, the results back would be garbage. Today it is taught with Excel-like software that can automate summations over an arbitrary table of data, which makes the patterns much more evident and meaningful, and the busywork significantly less.

Thanks for sharing the results of your pilot. Pearson’s online college statistics course exists and it would be terrific if it was a resource for more students. IME, high school students, even those used to success in math, will need significant in-person teacher/tutor support to get through it, but there’s no reason that can’t be available in a high school.

There was no algebra photo available? People are scared enough of mathematics there’s no need to scare them further by using calculus to illustrate an algebra article (tongue in cheek, kind of).

Sorry Paul! That’s my bad – all these years out of high school, I’m not so good at telling the difference anymore, which makes your point, I guess.

Beware that this is not the same as saying that there is a certainty that stable increase in equity will continue. Nor is it the same as saying that there is a certainty that volatile numbers can be stable or be very profitable in the future. The take away for these examples is that companies work just the same way as humans. Stable companies tend to remain stable, and unstable companies tend to remain less stable in the future. When it is more difficult to predict and value a company this is equivalent to taking on risk.

When analyzing a new stock pick it is highly recommendable to check out the 10-year trend for a number of key ratios. All providers like MSN Money, Morningstar, and Yahoo finance provide key ratios back a number of years. To get you a better overview of the stability and trend of the most important key ratios BuffettsBooks.com has provided you with a free tool. You can find it at the end of this summary:

When looking at the key ratios for the last 10 years you want the book value per share (equity) to steadily increase. You want the debt/equity to be below 0.5 and steady or declining, and you want your EPS to be growing or at least consistent. Again, this is no guarantee of the future, but it is a strong indication whether the company at least in the future has proven to have a good track record.

Before picking a stock it is a good idea to ask yourself if you understand it. If you understand a company, you would typically also have a good idea, if a change in strategy or products will have a negative or positive effect on the earnings. That way you can as an investor either buy, hold or sell your stock in the company accordingly to the development.

Peter Lynch, known as the best mutual fund manager in the world averaged 29% in annual return between 1977 and 1990. Just like Warren Buffett he is a big spokesperson for only investing in companies that you really know. His philosophy is that since you are spending your time on products and service you really like, where not also profit from that knowledge that you have about them. Sold in more than 1 million copies his book One Up Wall Street is a strong insight into how to capitalize on your own ideas in the stock market, and why your knowledge is just, if not even more, powerful than Wall Street.
