It brought down a president, stirred social unrest, and ended in defeat. No one in hindsight believes fighting a losing war is ever worth the cost. Consequently, the Vietnam War is usually written off as a colossal strategic blunder and a humanitarian disaster. Yet, historical appraisals might have been much different had the Vietnam War followed the pattern of the Korean War, which the United States fought for almost identical reasons: the defense of freedom in Asia. The U.S. had military advisors in Vietnam during the 1950s, but didn’t become involved in a major way until 1963. President John F. Kennedy firmly believed in the “domino effect,” the foreign policy theory that vulnerable nations without help would fall, one after another, like dominos, to external communist aggression. Kennedy thus hoped to stop Soviet- and Chinese-backed communist invasions in the manner President Harry Truman had in Korea by taking a stand in Vietnam. As with Korea, it was a war the United States did not seek. As with Korea, Vietnam presented no “imperial” advantages: no natural resources, or resources of any kind, that the United States needed to protect or wished to obtain. As with Korea, the aggressor was a communist government in the North intent on taking control of the South, and its military crossed an internationally recognized border to do so. Following Kennedy’s assassination in November of 1963, President Lyndon Johnson vastly escalated America’s role in 1964. But even as he did so, Johnson prosecuted the war with deep ambivalence, authorizing significantly more troops and money for the war, but never pushing for total victory. In contrast, the North Vietnamese never wavered. They ignored every one of Johnson’s many offers to negotiate a settlement. By 1971, the war was at a stalemate, neither side able to establish a clear advantage. The president, Richard Nixon, pursued a two-prong strategy -- to turn over combat operations to the South Vietnamese, and to bomb North Vietnam. The effort brought the communists to the Paris Peace Talks. And by 1973, the North agreed to a general settlement, establishing two autonomous Vietnamese nations – one communist, one non-communist—in the manner of North and South Korea. However, the Watergate scandal, the subsequent resignation of President Nixon, and the Democrats’ sweeping congressional victory in the 1974 mid-term election all helped to convince the North Vietnamese that America would not enforce the peace agreement. They were right. Without U.S. air support and material aid, the South Vietnamese had no chance against the North. Well supplied by the Soviet Union and the Chinese, the communists gained full control over the country in April 1975. The war proved far more costly than Korea because the geography and landscapes of Vietnam were far more conducive to insurgency operations. There were also far more restrictions placed on American commanders than during the Korean War. And the United States in the 1960s was a far less conservative and cohesive country than America of the 1950s.

In the 1860s and 70s, photographer Timothy O'Sullivan created some of the best-known images in American History. After covering the U.S. Civil War, (many of his photos appear in this earlier series), O'Sullivan joined a number of expeditions organized by the federal government to help document the new frontiers in the American West. The teams were composed of soldiers, scientists, artists, and photographers, and tasked with discovering the best ways to take advantage of the region's untapped natural resources. O'Sullivan brought an amazing eye and work ethic, composing photographs that evoked the vastness of the West. He also documented the Native American population as well as the pioneers who were already altering the landscape. Above all, O'Sullivan captured -- for the first time on film -- the natural beauty of the American West in a way that would later influence Ansel Adams and thousands more photographers to come.

Fragile States, Better Security and Management of Natural Resources | Paul Collier | TEDxOxford
While people in many developing countries are beginning to reduce gap with the West, people in fragile states are not. One reason is a lack of security. In countries like Mali and the CAR, only last-minute French intervention stabilised extremely dangerous situations, while the US Rapid Reaction Force sat in Stuttgart. We must end flip-flops of policy over intervention. Europe should take a long-term and consistent approach to building African capacity to intervene before security crises get out of hand. Natural resource extraction often fails to benefit the country with the resources. Resource extraction companies should be seen as custodians (much like banks). Key steps needed are: more transparency, on which there is some progress; more effective taxation, requiring better international rules and provision of qualified staff; and stronger action on corruption through making it harder to hide payments – including an international standard on public disclosure of beneficial ownership. Professor of Economics and Public Policy at the Blavatnik School of Government and a Professorial Fellow of St Antony’s College. He took Public Service leave when he was Director of the Research Development Department of the World Bank. Currently a Professeur invité at Sciences Po and a Director of the International Growth Centre. His research covers the causes and consequences of civil war; the effects of aid and problems of democracy in low-income and natural resources rich societies; urbanization in low-income countries; private investment in African infrastructure and changing organizational cultures. Books include The Bottom Billion (2007) which in 2008 won the Lionel Gelber, Arthur Ross and Corine prizes and in 2009 was joint winner of the Estoril Global Issues Distinguished Book prize. His latest book is Exodus: How migration is changing our world (2013) In 2014, Paul received a knighthood for promoting research and policy change in Africa.

West Virginia: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
West Virginia is a state with vast natural resources—timber, oil, gas, and, most famously, coal. Those non-renewable resources are quickly disappearing and, with them, the hope for West Virginia's future unless we create a Future Fund—a mineral trust fund—to meet the challenges of tomorrow. Since the 1880s, much of West Virginia's wealth has left the state in railcars and trucks. The local businesses that lined the main streets of Logan and Welch as late as the 1970s are gone, replaced by empty storefronts and broken dreams. More coal has been mined in McDowell County than any other county in West Virginia. Yet today, McDowell County is one of the ten poorest counties in the United States in terms of per capita income, education levels of its citizens and the quality of their health and well being. Today our state stands on the cusp of a natural gas boom as drilling has begun in the Marcellus Shale. Like coal in the last century, the gas industry is susceptible to booms and busts. This economic uncertainty can be addressed if we create a Future Fund by setting aside a portion of natural resource severance taxes. We can't go back and restore to McDowell or Logan counties a portion of the wealth that has left West Virginia. But we have the opportunity to do better for tomorrow's West Virginians by ensuring that future generations will continue to benefit from our state's natural wealth.

Westward Expansion: Crash Course US History #24
In which John Green teaches you about the Wild, Wild, West, which as it turns out, wasn't as wild as it seemed in the movies. When we think of the western expansion of the United States in the 19th century, we're conditioned to imagine the loner. The self-reliant, unattached cowpoke roaming the prairie in search of wandering calves, or the half-addled prospector who has broken from reality thanks to the solitude of his single-minded quest for gold dust. While there may be a grain of truth to these classic Hollywood stereotypes, it isn't a very big grain of truth. Many of the pioneers who settled the west were family groups. Many were immigrants. Many were major corporations. The big losers in the westward migration were Native Americans, who were killed or moved onto reservations. Not cool, American pioneers. Support CrashCourse on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/crashcourse Hey teachers and students - Check out CommonLit's free collection of reading passages and curriculum resources to learn more about the events of this episode. America’s Westward expansion was fueled by both Manifest Destiny and a desire to grow the nation and its resources — though at a cost: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/manifest-destiny As Americans continued to stream West on the name of Manifest Destiny, American Indians saw their lives changed forever as they moved from practising resistance to lives on reservations: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/from-resistance-to-reservations

West Virginia Division of Natural Resources (WVDNR) ornithologist Richard Bailey discusses WV birds
Richard Bailey is an ornithologist who, as of 2014, worked for the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources (WVDNR); in 2013, Bailey worked for the Wildlife Diversity Unit of the WVDNR, with specific occupational focus to the “research and conservation of non-game birds” in the state. In this 2013 interview, entitled “Birds of West Virginia and Beyond,” with Mark Madison of the National Conservation Training Center, Bailey discusses how his occupational duties vary from “database management” in an office to the “monitoring of rare birds,” such as the loggerhead shrike, in “the field,” a colloquialism for an environment in which data collection occurs, how known West Virginia eagle nests increased from one in the early 1980s to “well over” forty in 2013, and how wind farms affect diurnal raptors in the state.

Market Empire: The U.S., the Philippines & Natural Resource Management
The importation of tropical products from the Caribbean and the Pacific accompanied the growth of American industrial development in the early twentieth century. While the new demand for tropical fruits, woods, and products dramatically altered tropical ecosystems and contributed to food shortages in what is today called the "global south," it also encouraged the development of an ethic of natural resource management and conservation. By focusing on the work of American agricultural scientists, foresters, and chemists during the U.S. occupation of the Philippines (1898-1936), Theresa Ventura shows how science was integral to the emergence of the United States as a world power; the influence of Philippine knowledge on environmental and nutritional knowledge; and the often devastating impact of conservation and land management programs on indigenous communities.

Water Needs and Wants: Joanna Endter-Wada at TEDxUSU
How much water do communities in the arid western United States need to survive? It depends on what the public decides to do with the water. Fundamental ethical considerations, policy debates, and planning concerns must be addressed to adequately answer this question. As a society how do we ensure that our wants for water do not imperil the human and ecosystem need for water? Joanna Endter-Wada is an Associate Professor of Natural Resource and Environmental Policy in the S.J. and Jessie E. Quinney College of Natural Resources at Utah State University. Her work focuses on water policy and law in the U.S. West where she contributes to finding more equitable and sustainable approaches for using this vital resource. After researching water issues and interacting with water officials, managers, users, and scientists for more than two decades, Endter-Wada appreciates the many challenges and trade-offs involved in water-related decision making. As an academic researcher and practicing scholar of public policy, Endter-Wada engages in interdisciplinary science projects, translates science to the general public, and serves in appointed positions on task forces, boards, and committees. She has worked with government agencies at the federal, state, and local levels on water, urban landscape, forestry, fisheries, public land, and wetland issues. She is a member of the International Association for Society and Resource Management, the American Water Resources Association, and the Ecological Society of America.

If they rebelled, Africa would collapse. But do not forget the chiefs, village chiefs of the tribe, the family... ancestral characters around which the social life of the community gravitates. Above them, the woman and chiefs, modernity has installed a new power: the power of the state.

IL passed to Britain at the end of the 7 Years War (The French and Indian War). Not many British soldiers or settlers went to IL because the land was reserved for Indian settlement. In 1783 the U.S. took control of IL after the American Revolution. In 1809 the IL Territory was established with the capital of Kaskaskia. In 1818 IL becomes the 21st state. A year later the capital is moved to Vadalia. In 1837 the capital was moved to Springfield. IL came into the U.S. as a free state and was part of the Union during the Civil War. A major strategy point for the Union was in southwestern IL at a place called Cairo. Chorus: Illinois, the Mississippi down our west side Nathaniel Pope's eastern coastline Pushed it up over 50 miles In the midwest, a microcosm of our country's best An industry, ag and fuel chest The Land of Lincoln's presidential quest Explanation of the Chorus: The western border of IL is defined by the Mississippi River. Right before IL was admitted as the 21st state in 1818 there was a debate about where the northern boundary would be. Nathaniel Pope, a lobbyist for IL, was able to talk the government into giving IL over 60 miles of Lake Michigan coastline. IL is in the midwestern United States and is considered to be a microcosm. Industry in the north, agriculture in the mid part of the state and natural resources in the south. IL is called the Land of Lincoln. President Abraham Lincoln lived and worked in IL before becoming president. Verse 2: Little Egypt in the south supplies food during snow We harvest timber, mine coal and drill for oil Go to the midsection with prairies and corn The Heart of Illinois, where the soybeans grow Up in the north we have big cities like Rockford and Chicago In 1844, Nauvoo was a rival The Great Lakes Region We're industrial Explanation of Verse 2: The southern part of IL was called "Little Egypt" after the Winter of the Deep Snow (1830-31) when crops from the southern part of the state were delivered up north to help those in northern IL survive the harsh winter. It is believed that Little Egypt was in reference to the Biblical story about Joseph in Egypt delivering grain to his brothers. The southern part of IL has natural resources such as timber, coal and oil. The middle part of the state, called the Heart of Illinois, has prairies. The northern part of IL is in the Great Lakes Region and is more focused on industry. In 1844 there was a town called Nauvoo on the Mississippi River that rivaled the population growth of Chicago. Nauvoo was growing because of the influx of Mormons who eventually left and moved west. Bridge: From the Kaskaskia enclave To the highest Charles Mound We shout State Sovereignty, National Union Northern cardinal takes it down From the Wabash River to the American Bottom Purple Violets can be found Where the white oak - stands tall and proud We're Carbondale bound Explanation of the Bridge: Kaskaskia, the original capital of IL, is one of the few parts of the state located west of the Mississippi.

Shelley Moore Capito Sworn in as United States Senator
U.S. Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) was sworn in to the 114th Congress today by Vice President Joe Biden. Sen. Capito took the oath of office using her father’s Bible from World War II – given to him by his grandmother, Lucy – and a Bible from her parents given to her upon graduating college. Sen. Capito issued the following statement upon being sworn in: “It is an honor to take the oath of office today as West Virginia’s United States Senator. “I am extremely grateful to the people of West Virginia for the opportunity to serve our great state. You have entrusted me with the highest of honors, and I will work every single day on your behalf. West Virginia’s voice will be heard loud and clear in the halls of Congress. “I am humbled to be the first woman from West Virginia to serve in the United States Senate, and I truly hope that my service will be a source of inspiration for young women everywhere. “I look forward to serving on several key Senate committees, all of which address West Virginia’s top priorities. On the Energy and Natural Resources committee, I will fight to make sure West Virginia coal and natural gas are at the center of federal policy. On the Environment and Public Works Committee, I will advocate for a six-year highway bill and a rein on the EPA’s job-killing regulations. And I will ensure West Virginia has a big seat at the table when our nation’s spending priorities are being set on the Appropriations Committee. “And I look forward to serving as Counsel to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in the 114th Congress. Serving in this role gives West Virginia a strong voice in Senate leadership. The open process Leader McConnell has enacted will create a more productive Senate. I will work with Senator Joe Manchin and the members of the West Virginia congressional delegation toward our common goal: getting Washington to work for West Virginia again. “With bipartisan solutions, I trust that we can prevail upon President Obama to sign commonsense legislation, like next week's Keystone bill. If the President uses his veto pen on bipartisan bills that clear both the House and Senate, the American people will have a clear view of who is standing in the way of progress for our nation. “I will always be mindful of my duty to the people of West Virginia and I am ready to get to work putting our state, and nation, on a path toward a stronger future.”

What Pioneer was thinking to sell 12M shares while most of the oil sector is hibernating. This podcast was recorded on Jan. 14, 2016. Imagine owning Amazon.com (up over an insane 4,000% since 2001) when Internet sales rendered big-box retailers obsolete... Now an industry 99% of us use daily is set to implode...
