#funfriday #flashbackfriday #friday13th Are you Stuck? (I got stuck many times)

Are you stuck?

When I lived at 1405 Prince Street Alexandria VA and on Friday 13th 1994ish I got stuck in the window. Miss Bunting (from Newport, Road Island, USA) and Miss Harnet (from St. George, Bermuda) helped me out. I want to reflect upon what I learned being stuck for over an hour until Miss Bunting got home from working at the Smithsonian and helped me out window on Friday 13th 1994-ish.

BACKGROUND:

Well 1st let me clarify that Miss Bunting was from many places and just a friend(roommate only) that worked for Smithsonian fundraising. Her Dad, Lieutenant General Josiah Bunting III , was President of Virginia Military Institute (VMI ) at the time as well as serving as President of Briarcliff College, Hampden-Sydney College, and Headmaster at the Lawrenceville School . As well as author of several book such as The American Presidents, All Loves Excelling: A Novel, Ulysses S. Grant: The American Presidents Series: The 18th President, 1869-1877, An Education for Our Time, and few other books. (Source Mr. Bunting from VMI Website, Amazon, and Wikipedia).

ASK FOR HELP

If you would like to learn more about this experience or sage word from Miss Bunting about her father’s books (and one story about asking for help during a fire at 1405 Prince Street) contact JD’s admin google “JD Morris Forbes” anytime (i.e. let us see if you can find me via Linkedin via the Google clue) .

Happy Mothers Day #wokeuponmothersday#happymothersday #womansrights #momsrights #wonderwomen #wondermom

My mother raised me to be a Southern Gentleman and I have lost my way. Today I thank her for reminding me to be Gentleman, but remember today is world of #signs that means today you must be #woke = thank you mom to teaching me to respect everything in the world and to respect every #sign unless it is wrong.

“Thank you mom and all the woman of the world for teaching me to honor others that deserve to be honored and avoid those that are not honorable”

#whosaidthat #woke #wokeuponmothersday

My mom worked with #LindaCarter, #BobHope, and #RockHudson in 1972 for Miss World USA 1972 held in Hampton, VA. Funny story, that my mom was in charge of several woman and #MissCarter was one of them (so yes I was held in the arms of Wonder Woman and I have it in writing (kinda).

Bob Hope and Miss World USA 1972 (Linda Carter left and Bob Hope right)

My dad worked at NASA in Hampton, VA. My mom lead #womanrights issues through her garden club as a say at home mom like #ElizabethWarren (now #senatorwarren ). Although my mom did not become a US Senator, she did visit capital hill meeting with Congressman and Senator to advance her beliefs in #womansrights vs. write a book.

>> She also supported me in sports and wind surfing.

>> She let me use her Trump Sports Car to go to school vs riding the bus per my Dad’s wishes.

>> She account for more than fifty percent of #everthinggood ( i.e. #sugerandspiceandeverythingnice )

SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Joe_(rocket)

FROM WIKIPIDA

Little Joe was a solid-fueled booster rocket used by NASA for eight launches from 1959-1960 from Wallops Island, Virginia to test the launch escape system and heat shield for Project Mercury capsules, as well as the name given to the test program using the booster. The first rocket designed solely for crewed spacecraft qualifications, Little Joe was also one of the pioneer operational launch vehicles using the rocket cluster principle.

FROM NASA DOCUMENTS

On September 20, 1951, a monkey named Yorick and 11 mice were recovered after an Aerobee missile flight of 236,000 feet at Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico. Yorick got a fair amount of press as the first monkey to live through a space flight.

On May 22, 1952, two Philippine monkeys, Patricia and Mike, were enclosed in an Aerobee nose section at Holloman Air Force Base. Patricia was placed in a seated position and Mike in a prone position to determine differences in the effects of rapid acceleration. Fired 36 miles up at a speed of 2000 mph, these two monkeys were the first primates to reach such a high altitude. Also on this flight were two white mice, Mildred and Albert. They were inside a slowly rotating drum where they could “float” during the period of weightlessness. The section containing the animals was recovered safely from the upper atmosphere by parachute. Patricia died of natural causes about two years later and Mike died in 1967, both at the National Zoological Park in Washington, DC.

China Become next GE?

CASE STUDY HOW HELLY HANSEN BECAME PART OF SOCIALIST CAPITALISM (or is it like a division of General Electric)

FACT: Helly Hansen is a Norwegian manufacturer and retailer of clothing and sports equipment and a subsidiary of the Canadian retail chain Canadian Tire. Currently headquartered in Oslo, it was previously headquartered in Moss, Norway from its founding in 1877 until October 2009.

HISTORY: Helly Juell Hansen had been at sea since the age of 14 and in 1877, at the age of 35, he and his wife Maren Margarethe produced their first oilskin jackets, trousers, sou’westers and tarpaulins, made from coarse linen soaked in linseed oil. Over the first five years they sold around 10,000 pieces. In 1878 the company won a diploma for excellence at the Paris Expo, and began exporting its products. After Helly Juell Hansen’s death in 1914, company leadership passed on to his son Leiv Helly-Hansen, an experienced merchant.

MERGERS

By 1995, the company was owned by Norwegian conglomerate Orkla. That year, Orkla sold a 50% stake in Helly Hansen to Resource Group International,[6] which merged with Aker in 1996.

In 1997, Investcorp bought Aker’s stake and most of Orkla’s stake, giving it 70% ownership. The company was valued at $160 million.[7]

In October 2006, Investcorp sold its interest in Helly Hansen to Altor Equity Partners“a private equity firm focusing on investments in companies based in the Nordic region.”

In 2012, Altor sold a 75% stake in Helly Hansen to the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan.[8]

In 2015 the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan increased its position, acquiring Altor’s remaining stock in the business.

In May 2018, the pension plan sold the company to Canadian Tire, a retailer, for CA$985 million

JD Morris in Forbes Online Article: Understanding NFTs From Conception To Trade

We have all heard the stories of young kids selling NFTs for some amazing amount of money. As someone who enjoys investing in art NFTs and is launching an NFT for race cars and art, I put together this article to help demystify NFTs.

NFTs are non-fungible (i.e., unique) tokens that are minted on a blockchain using cryptocurrency. These NFTs can be art, music, collectible images, sports video snapshots, etc. A popular idea is linking a digital art piece to supporting a charitable organization, for example, Girls Who Code. This is a charity that intends to close the gender gap by helping young women become software engineers.

NFTs are a popular use of blockchain technology, and while many may see it as a passing fad, it is helping to bring knowledge of blockchain technology to the masses with an additional use case.

Weekend Fun – NASA plans for Pigs in Space (or Flying Pigs)

What would the private sector have done had they been funded to fly to the moon?

I think John William Wilkey (Jack) one of the 1st five employees of NASA was right!  Fly a pig vs. small monkey as it is more human size organs  The first monkey died at NASA and the did not tell the public about replacing it.  However, the press / public relations says people love monkies!  What a commercial company showboat a monkey or do the right thing?

We will never know if a pig could fly in space, but we do know that today private rocket companies besides Lockheed Martin and others is the future!

IMPORTANT: Please share your stories before history re-writes them.  To learn more about “Pigs in Space” visit this URL:
