The Last Refuge: 1 of 4: Yemen, al-Qaeda, and America's War in Arabia Audible Audiobook – Unabridged. Gregory Johnsen (Author), Michael Butler Murray (Narrator), Audible Studios (Publisher)

Photo:View of Mocha, Yemen during the second half of the 17th century. Dutch geographer/engraver Olfert Dapper, 1680 - eBay.com View of Mocha during the second half of the 17th century. The Dutch flag is flying over a Dutch East India Company (VOC) ship in the foreground, as well as over the VOC factory seen toward the left of the picture. The English East India Company factory is visible near the center. Another flag can be seen flying on the right, most likely over the Danish East India Co. factory. The French were to establish their own factory during the early years of the 18th. century. However, by the 1740s Mocha was quickly losing its commercial importance when the Dutch East Indies and Brazil became important centers of coffee cultivation. Cropped from an engraving by Dutch geographer/mapmaker Olfert DAPPER published in 1680.

Far from the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan, the United States and al-Qaeda are fighting a clandestine war of drones and suicide bombers in an unforgiving corner of Arabia. The Last Refuge charts the rise, fall, and resurrection of al-Qaeda in Yemen over the last 30 years, detailing how a group that the United States once defeated has now become one of the world's most dangerous threats. An expert on Yemen who has spent years on the ground there, Gregory D. Johnsen uses al-Qaeda's Arabic battle notes to reconstruct their world as they take aim at the United States and its allies. Johnsen brings listeners inside al-Qaeda's training camps and safe houses as the terrorists plot poison attacks and debate how to bring down an airliner on Christmas Day. The Last Refuge is an eye-opening look at the successes and failures of fighting a new type of war in one of the most turbulent countries in the world.

And, more than the church or the school or the courthouse, it was the family that nurtured the American Dream. In this novel-like narrative, Daniel Blake Smith vividly brings to life the Fletchers, a family of loving, ambitious, at times insecure pioneers who scattered across the vast expanse of post-revolutionary America but kept in touch through letters despite their wildly different life paths. On a hard scrabble farm in Vermont, the patriarch, Jesse Fletcher, struggled with debt and depression but managed to educate his children, especially his son Elijah, a Yankee who moved to Virginia, shocked by the horrors of slavery but then seduced by the plantation lifestyle. Another son, Calvin, left at age 17 for Indianapolis to become a self-made lawyer, banker, and a prominent citizen and passionate abolitionist. The grandchildren include Indiana, a women's education activist who donated her home to create Sweet Briar College; black sheep Lucian, who went to California to join in the gold rush; and physician Billy captured as a spy during the Civil War. Through letters and diaries, we find in Our Family Dreams that the Fletchers appear surprisingly similar to us; they dream, fret, fight, and love. Despite numerous heartaches and setbacks, their spirit of enterprise, sacrifice, mobility, and education endures as American values to this day.

Photo: English: Lunch in the bush, near Warwick, ca.1893 Man and woman stopping for a meal and a billy of tea. The horses have been unhitched from the double buggy. Travel in Australia during the late 1800s would have been very difficult. The double buggy was advertised as 'a must for squatters' as it was admirably adapted to travelling over huge logs and rutted ground.

Gregory Copley, Defense & Foreign Affairs. What Does Australia’s Impending Government Change Portend? Gregory Copley. Analysis. From GIS/Defense & Foreign Affairs, Canberra. Australia’s anticipated change of government in May 2019, from centrist to left, is not expected to see a sud-den shift in defense operational or procurement policy. Strategically, it may be much worse than that for Australia. The likely incoming Defence Minister, South Australian Labor politician Richard Marles, MP, is very much in harmony with the thinking of outgoing Defence Minister Christopher Pyne (Liberal, also from South Australia), who has said that he would not stand again for Parliament in the May elections. The two — Pyne and Marles — have a longstanding friendship and many shared values when it comes to national security. Both ardently support the current Government’s policy of massive investment in the de-fense industrial base in the state of South Australia, and for a technologicaly superior Australian Defence Force. But the concern for Australia is that, under the anticipated Labor Government under its leader, Bill Shorten, there will be continued areas of strategic decline for the country — reflecting Labor’s earlier policies and its current strenuously left promises — in terms of: (a) Quiet appeasement to the pressures of the People’s Republic of Chi-na (PRC), and therefore a reticence to fully embrace the traditional al-liance with the United States (via the ANZUS Treaty); (b) The opening once to allow illegal immigration on a significant scale; and (c) Worst of all for the country, a major slide in economic performance, to include a dramatic increase in public debt levels and declining appeal of the economy to foreign investors.

NASA looks at commercial boosters for the Orion space capsule test. Bob Zimmerman, BehindtheBlack.com

Photo:Dr. Robert H. Goddard tows his rocket to the launching tower behind a Model A Ford truck, 15 miles northwest of Roswell, New Mexico. 1930- 1932\. Dr. Goddard has been recognized as the "Father of American Rocketry" and as one of three pioneers in the theoretical exploration of space. Robert Hutchings Goddard was born in Worcester, Massachusetts, on October 5, 1882\. He was a theoretical scientist as well as a practical engineer. His dream was the conquest of the upper atmosphere and ultimately space through the use of rocket propulsion. Dr. Goddard, who died in 1945, was probably as responsible for the dawning of the Space Age as the Wright Brothers were for the begining of the Air Age. Yet his work attracted little serious attention during his lifetime. When the United States began to prepare for the conquest of space in the 1950's, American rocket scientists began to recognize the debt owed to the New England professor. They discovered that it was virtually impossible to construct a rocket or launch a satellite without acknowledging the work of Dr. Goddard. This great legacy was covered by more than 200 patents, many of which were issued after his death...HQ: 74-H-1210 label_outline Tags robert goddardnasa1920s trucksearly rockets NASA looks at commercial boosters for the Orion space capsule test.  Bob Zimmerman, BehindtheBlack.com [](https://behindtheblack.com/behind-the-black/points-of-information/nasa-considering-replacing-sls-with-commercial-rockets-for-first-orion-test-mission/) [https://behindtheblack.com/behind-the-black/points-of-information/nasa-considering-replacing-sls-with-commercial-rockets-for-first-orion-test-mission/](https://behindtheblack.com/behind-the-black/points-of-information/nasa-considering-replacing-sls-with-commercial-rockets-for-first-orion-test-mission/)
