Rather, it will belong to those who can blend vision, reason, and courage in a personal commitment.”

The latest heist: US Quietly snatches Ukraine’s gold reserves

Reports out of Kiev state that the US has taken 33 tons of gold out of Ukraine. Last week a Ukrainian newspaper reported that PM Arseny Yatsenyuk ordered the transfer of that gold to the US.

So we can’t give Germany back its fold for years, but can easily take Ukranian gold?

The Best Places For Scavenging After SHTF: ask a prepper… “Scavenging in any of the places listed below is illegal. It should only be considered in situations where there is a complete breakdown of society. What I present here is a thought experiment regarding what would be the best locations to scavenge in the unlikely event of a widespread apocalypse.”… industrial areas, garbage dumps, hospitals/clinics/doctors’ offices/vet clinics, self-storage facilities, and more

Faith Not Permitted In The Public Square: How One Christian Was Forced To Resign: prophecy news watch…“Andrew Thorburn had no idea the whirlwind he was in for when he accepted the job of chief executive of Australian Football League club Essendon. He would be pressured to resign just over 24 hours after taking the job. At the center of this controversy was not a personal scandal nor an accusation of being unqualified — rather, it was his association with City on a Hill Church, where he served as chairman.”

New Math

November 29, 2022

New Math
by Tom Lehrer

Tom Lehrer
That Was The Year That Was

lyrics:

(Introduction, spoken:)
Some of you who have small children may have perhaps been
Put in the embarrassing position of being unable to do your
Child’s arithmetic homework because of the current revolution
In mathematics teaching known as the New Math. So as a public
Service here tonight, I thought I would offer a brief lesson
In the New Math. Tonight, we’re gonna cover subtraction.
This is the first room I’ve worked for a while that didn’t have
A blackboard, so we will have to make do with more primitive
Visual aids, as they say in the ed biz. Consider the following
Subtraction problem, which I will put up here:
342 minus 173.
Now, remember how we used to do that: But in the new approach,
As you know, the important thing is to understand what you’re doing,
Rather than to get the right answer. Here’s how they do it now:

You can’t take three from two,
Two is less than three,
So you look at the four in the tens place.
Now that’s really four tens
So you make it three tens,
Regroup, and you change a ten to ten ones,
And you add ’em to the two and get twelve,
And you take away three, that’s nine.
Is that clear?

Now instead of four in the tens place
You’ve got three,
‘Cause you added one,
That is to say, ten, to the two,
But you can’t take seven from three,
So you look in the hundreds place.

From the three you then use one
To make ten ones…
(And you know why four plus minus one
Plus ten is fourteen minus one?
‘Cause addition is commutative, right!)…
And so you’ve got thirteen tens
And you take away seven,
And that leaves five…

Well, six actually…
But the idea is the important thing!

Now go back to the hundreds place,
You’re left with two,
And you take away one from two,
And that leaves…?

Everybody get one?
Not bad for the first day!

Hooray for New Math,
New-hoo-hoo Math,
It won’t do you a bit of good to review math.
It’s so simple,
So very simple,
That only a child can do it!

Now, that actually is not the answer that I had in mind, because the
Book that I got this problem out of wants you to do it in base
Eight. But don’t panic! Base eight is just like base ten really –
If you’re missing two fingers! Shall we have a go at it?
Hang on…

You can’t take three from two,
Two is less than three,
So you look at the four in the eights place.
Now that’s really four eights,
So you make it three eights,
Regroup, and you change an eight to eight ones
And you add ’em to the two,
And you get one-two base eight,
Which is ten base ten,
And you take away three, that’s seven.
Ok?

Now instead of four in the eights place
You’ve got three,
‘Cause you added one,
That is to say, eight, to the two,
But you can’t take seven from three,
So you look at the sixty-fours…

Sixty-four? “How did sixty-four get into it?” I hear you cry!
Well, sixty-four is eight squared, don’t you see? (Well, ya ask a
Silly question, ya get a silly answer!)

From the three, you then use one
To make eight ones,
You add those ones to the three,
And you get one-three base eight,
Or, in other words,
In base ten you have eleven,
And you take away seven,
And seven from eleven is four!
Now go back to the sixty-fours,
You’re left with two,
And you take away one from two,
And that leaves…?

Now, let’s not always see the same hands!
One, that’s right.
Whoever got one can stay after the show and clean the erasers.

Hooray for New Math,
New-hoo-hoo Math!
It won’t do you a bit of good to review math.
It’s so simple,
So very simple,
That only a child can do it!

(Spoken:)
Come back tomorrow night… we’re gonna do fractions!
Y’know, I’ve often thought I’d like to write a mathematics
Textbook someday because I have a title that I know will
Sell a million copies; I’m gonna call it Tropic of Calculus.

One day you’ll realize that the “crazy conspiracy theorists”, that the media and politicians told you not to believe, were just your friends and family members, who found out that humanity was genuinely in danger, and that they were just trying to save you.
