2021.10.25 11:27 ARC-7652 American Labor Part 3: 1946 Midterm Elections
NOTABLE EVENTS: 1944:
November 7 - Incumbent President and Vice President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Henry Agard Wallace are re-elected despite a challenge from New York Governor Thomas Edmund Dewey and Ohio Governor John William Bricker. Democrats maintain Senate and House Majority despite losing some support.
April 12 - President Roosevelt suddenly dies of a massive intracerebral hemorrhage. Vice President Wallace is sworn in later that day.
April 28 - Italian Dictator Benito Mussolini is captured and executed.
April 29 - Italian forces unconditionally surrender.
April 30 - German Dictator Adolf Hitler commits suicide.
May 7 - German forces unconditionally surrender.
May 10 - Order JCS 1067 is signed into effect by President Wallace.
August 6 - President Wallace, alongside other Allied leaders, Emperor Hirohito of Japan, and key members of the Manhattan Project, attend the Darwin Conference in Darwin, Australia. Wallace and lead Scientist J Robert Oppenheimer demonstrate the Little Boy atomic bomb in an undisclosed location in Central Australia. Wallace tells Hirohito that America has dozens of similar bombs. A ceasefire lasting until January 1st, 1946 is signed.
August 19 - The Chinese Civil War ends. Under pressure from the United States and with memories fresh from the Australia test, Chinese Communist Party leader Mao Zedong caves and signs the "One China" agreement, giving the CCP control of the previously Japanese island of Taiwan and possible representation on the mainland. Hostilities end and the Province of Taiwan is to enter Communist rule by March 1946.
October 14 - Joseph Stalin suffers a massive heart attack. Despite the best effort of doctors, he dies. Vyacheslav Molotov, his closest ally, is instated as de-facto leader. This is not revealed to the public until it was leaked in July 1946.
October 24 - The United Nations is founded by ratification of its Charter
December 25 - Hirohito announces the full, unconditional surrender of Japan, ending the Second World War. Critics of the "Christmas Miracle" point out the convenient timing of this surrender and suggest it was specifically timed by the United States to rouse public support. Nonetheless, President Wallace's approval soars.
January 17 - United States Senator Dennis Chávez (D-NM) calls for a vote on a Fair Employment Practice Committee bill, which calls for an end to discrimination in the workplace. A filibuster prevents it from passing.
July 1 - Operation Crossroads, a series of nuclear weapon tests conducted by the United States at Bikini Atoll in Micronesia, is initiated by the detonation of Able at an altitude of 520 feet.
July 13 - The news of the death of Stalin is leaked to the United States by a Soviet defector and is released by President Wallace in a press conference. Wallace, despite being somewhat friendly with the Soviets, immediately calls for Democratic reform in the USSR, and says that "a Tyrant has fallen".
July 24 - In the first underwater test of the atomic bomb, the surplus USS Saratoga is sunk near Bikini Atoll in the Pacific Ocean, when the United States detonates the Baker device during Operation Crossroads.
August 1 - The United States Atomic Energy Commission is established.
September 3 - The Progressive and Farmer-Labor Parties, due to the threat of going extinct, merge into the Progressive Farmer-Labor Party. They decide to only run candidates in Industrial America. A deal is struck with the Democrats that they will not challenge any incumbent Democrat and Democrats will only run candidates in Industrial states without a PFL candidate.
September 21 - President Wallace gives a radio address urging Americans to vote for the Democratic and Farmer-Labor Parties, as they are "the only way we will move forward".
PARTIES: Democratic: Ruling Party for the last 14 years. Beliefs range from Progressive to Hard-Line Conservative. Currently holds the Presidency through popular Wallace.
Republican: Minority Party. Beliefs range from Liberal to Conservative. Is calling for change after 14 years of Democratic rule.
Progressive Farmer-Labor: Minor Party. Only holds 1 seat through Robert M. La Follette Jr. and is only running in the industrial states. Beliefs range from Progressive to Liberal. Endorsed by President Wallace
Write-in: Comment who you're voting for, and as long as they were eligible in 1946, your vote will be counted towards them.

2021.10.25 11:27 Lucoire The MVPs of the Keyboard: the num-pad
Today I'd like to introduce you to Num-0, the MVP of Buttons, and its lesser known but very useful siblings.
If you have no target selected and press Num-0, it selects something you can interact with. That includes (among other things):
2021.10.25 11:27 Voice_Memos What’s an inoffensive but strong opinion you have?

2021.10.25 11:27 Dimathevs Would appreciate reviews of my SOP for MS in Holocaust and Genocide Studies, if possible.
I'm applying for a Master's programme abroad in Holocaust and Genocide Studies. A statement of purpose is required and I believe I have a draft I'm satisfied with ready. But I don't have many people to send it for review, so I'd appreciate this kindness from strangers here, if possible. Being a programme abroad and english not being my main language, even though my english is fairly good, possible grammar or strange ponctuation is a concern of mine as well as of course the general structure of it, since this is my first real SOP writing.
Thank you in advance!

2021.10.25 11:27 OkEngine3 Getting more comfortable with the Koda 16
| Starting to feel better about purchasing the Koda 16! Still not perfect, but I feel like I'm heading in the right direction.|
Made 4 Neapolitan pizzas last night and was really happy with how they came out. Finally feel like I am getting a better understanding of how to control the temps to not burn the underside, while still managing to be hot enough to melt the cheese.
sorry for the crappy photos, I have no idea how to photograph food to make it look better :)
