Sabaton - Winged Hussars (Lyrics English & Deutsch)
 
03:54
When at the end of the 17th century the Ottoman Empire had reached its greatest extent, the Turks under Grand Vizier Kara Mustafa Pasha tried to capture the imperial city of Vienna and thereby throw open the gateway to Central Europe. In 1683 he laid siege to the fortress with 140,000 troops, while there were only 11,000 men available for the city defense. In the following 60-days lasting siege the Turks built mines below the city walls, which they intended to bring down with explosive charges. These were on the verge of detonating, when on 11 September the Polish-German relief force arrived, with troops from the Holy Roman Empire (Austria, Bavaria, Franconia, Saxony, Swabia) and the Republic of Venice, under the leadership of Poland. The tide of battle was turned on 12 September, when the Polish King John III. Sobieski led his elite troops of the Winged Hussars (Husaria) down the Kahlenberg in the largest cavalry charge in history, battering the Ottoman elite of the Sipahi and Janissaries and entering the enemy camp. CAUTION! I won't tolerate any racist, discriminatory or in any other form inappropriate comments! This song neither glorifies war, nor National Socialism, but should be considered as a historical work. "No, we don't glorify anything, we just tell stories about things that have happened."

Jahrhunderts das Osmanische Reich seine größte Ausdehnung erreicht hatte, versuchten die Türken unter Großwesir Kara Mustafa Pascha, die Kaiserstadt Wien einzunehmen und damit das Tor nach Mitteleuropa aufzustoßen. Mit 140.000 Soldaten schloss er 1683 die Stadt ein, in der gerade 11.000 Mann unter Waffen standen. In der folgenden, 60-tägigen Belagerung gruben die Türken Tunnel bis unter die Stadtmauern, die sie dann mit Sprengsätzen zum Einsturz bringen wollten. Diese standen kurz vor der Detonation, als am 11. September das polnisch-deutsche Entsatzheer mit Truppen aus dem Heiligen Römischen Reich (Österreich, Bayern, Franken, Sachsen, Schwaben) und der Republik Venedig unter der Führung Polens eintraf. Die Schlacht wurde am 12. September entschieden, als die polnischen Elitetruppen der Flügelhusaren (Husaria) unter dem Oberkommando von König Johann III. Sobieski in der größten Kavallerieattacke aller Zeiten vom Kahlenberg herab die osmanische Elite der Sipahi und Janitscharen vernichtend schlugen und ins feindliche Lager eindrangen. ACHTUNG! Ich dulde keine rassistischen, diskriminierenden oder in sonstiger Form unangemessene Kommentare! Dieses Lied verherrlicht weder Krieg, noch den Nationalsozialismus, sondern ist rein historisch zu betrachten! "Nein, wir verherrlichen nichts, wir erzählen nur Geschichten über Dinge, die passiert sind."

Countryside Lower Saxony Nature Germany

Countryside Lower Saxony Nature Germany Lower Saxony (German: Niedersachsen [ˈniːdɐzaksən], Low German: Neddersassen) is a German state (Bundesland) situated in northwestern Germany and is second in area, with 47,624 square kilometres (18,388 sq mi), and fourth in population (8 million) among the sixteen Länder of Germany. In rural areas Northern Low Saxon, a dialect of Low German, and Saterland Frisian, a variety of East Frisian, are still spoken, but the number of speakers is declining. Lower Saxony borders on (from north and clockwise) the North Sea, the states of Schleswig-Holstein, Hamburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Brandenburg, Saxony-Anhalt, Thuringia, Hesse and North Rhine-Westphalia, and the Netherlands. Furthermore, the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen forms two enclaves within Lower Saxony, one being the city of Bremen, the other, its seaport city of Bremerhaven. In fact, Lower Saxony borders more neighbours than any other single Bundesland. The state's principal cities include the state capital Hanover, Brunswick, Lüneburg, Osnabrück, Oldenburg, Hildesheim, Wolfenbüttel, Wolfsburg and Göttingen. The northwestern area of Lower Saxony, which lies on the coast of the North Sea, is called East Frisia and the seven East Frisian Islands offshore are popular with tourists. In the extreme west of Lower Saxony is the Emsland, a traditionally poor and sparsely populated area, once dominated by inaccessible swamps. The northern half of Lower Saxony, also known as the North German Plains, is almost invariably flat except for the gentle hills around the Bremen geestland. Towards the south and southwest lie the northern parts of the German Central Uplands: the Weser Uplands and the Harz mountains. Between these two lie the Lower Saxon Hills, a range of low ridges. Thus, Lower Saxony is the only Bundesland that encompasses both maritime and mountainous areas. Lower Saxony's major cities and economic centres are mainly situated in its central and southern parts, namely Hanover, Brunswick, Osnabrück, Wolfsburg, Salzgitter, Hildesheim and Göttingen. Oldenburg, near the northwestern coastline, is another economic centre. The region in the northeast is called the Lüneburg Heath (Lüneburger Heide), the largest heathland area of Germany and in medieval times wealthy due to salt mining and salt trade, as well as to a lesser degree the exploitation of its peat bogs up until about the 1960s. To the north, the Elbe river separates Lower Saxony from Hamburg, Schleswig-Holstein, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Brandenburg. The banks just south of the Elbe are known as Altes Land (Old Country). Due to its gentle local climate and fertile soil it is the state's largest area of fruit farming, its chief produce being apples. Most of the state's territory was part of the historic Kingdom of Hanover; the state of Lower Saxony has adopted the coat of arms and other symbols of the former kingdom. It was created by the merger of the State of Hanover with several smaller states in 1946. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lower_Saxony Follow me on Twitter https://twitter.com/SeMeyer888

Freiberg/ Germany "The Schüppchenberg" by Crusader XL

Die Straßenzüge Helmertplatz, Wasserturmstraße und Talstraße folgen der Talsohle des Münzbachtales. Westlich davon verlief der ehemalige Mühlgraben, der am Straßennamen Am Mühlgraben noch zu erkennen ist. Die Pfarrgasse liegt etwa auf den Flurstücken des ehemaligen Christiansdorf. An der jetzigen Berggasse – in der städtischen UMGANGSSPRACHE „Schüppchenberg“ (Schüppchen = Küken) genannt – erfolgte vermutlich der Überlieferung nach der erste Fund von gediegenem Silbererz durch Hallesche Salzfuhrleute oder Goslarer Bergleute. Um den Buttermarkt, an welchem sich die Nikolaikirche und das Theater befinden, wird mit Weingasse, Enge Gasse, Nikolaigasse und Aschegasse die ehemalige Sächsstadt angenommen. Christiansdorf, historically spelt Christianesdorph in 1183 and Christianisdorf in 1185, was a forest settlement in the Duchy of Saxony (the present day German state of Saxony) that only existed for a few years, but is CREDITED as being the first place in the Ore Mountains that silver ore was discovered. The little mining settlement in the March of Meissen and was a forerunner of the present town of Freiberg, which itself was founded in the 1160s. Christiansdorf was located on the so-called Schüppchenberg hill, where the cul-de-sac of Berggasse now is. According to oral tradition and legend, the first ore - sterling silver - in the Freiberg Mining Field, and also in the whole Ore Mountains, was discovered on the fields of Christiansdorf by the Schüppchenberg around 1168 Der Fettfinger auf der Linse ist von meiner Tochter =D The fat finger on the lens of my daughter =D Music by YT Audio Library The 126ers "Summer Nights"

Lusatia
 
15:04
Lusatia is an historical region in Central Europe. It stretches from the Bóbr and Kwisa rivers in the east to the Elbe valley in the west, today located within the German states of Saxony and Brandenburg and the Lower Silesian and Lubusz voivodeships of western Poland. After the conquest of Eastern Germany by the Soviet Army and the partition in 1945, the eastern part of Lusatia along the Lusatian Neisse river was handed over to Poland where the boundary is called the Oder–Neisse line. In the Polish part Polish is spoken, and in the German part German, Upper- and Lower Sorbian. The biggest Lusatian town is Cottbus/Chóśebuz. The name derives from the Sorbian word łužicy meaning "swamps" or "water-hole". This video is targeted to blind users.

Great Harz Castle. Harz.Travel of the Cat  on a leash
 
03:16
The Harzburg, also called Gro?e Harzburg ("Great Harz Castle"), is a former imperial castle, situated on the northwestern edge of the Harz mountain range overlooking the spa resort of Bad Harzburg in Goslar District in the state of Lower Saxony, Germany. It was erected from 1065 to 1068 at the behest of King Henry IV of Germany, slighted during the Saxon Rebellion in 1073-75, and a century later rebuilt under Emperor Frederick Barbarossa and his Welf successor Otto IV, who died here in 1218. Later used as a robber baron's lair, the hill castle crumbled into ruins over the centuries. Today it has almost completely disappeared; only fragments of the foundation walls and the towers together with the castle well are preserved. Henry IV[edit] During Henry's minority and the regency of his mother Agnes of Poitou, the Saxon nobles had strengthened their position. The local count Otto of Nordheim, Duke of Bavaria since 1061, had even been involved in Henry's abduction during the 1062 Coup of Kaiserswerth. In turn, the Gro?e Harzburg (Hartesburg) was erected during a large-scale castle building programme in the Duchy of Saxony from 1065 to 1068. Intended as a demonstration of power in the Saxon mainland, the extended complex was strategically sited by King Henry's architect Bishop Benno II of Osnabruck providing protection for the nearby Goslar imperial palace and the mines of Rammelsberg. Its walls extend right up to the steep face of the conical hilltop. At the time it was built the castle was impregnable. Despite its defensive strength, the castle was also especially palatial. For example, it contained, amongst other things, unusually large, three-roomed great hall and collegiate church, to which Henry had many relics transferred. He even had a sort of family vault built, in which he laid the moratl remains of his brother, Duke Conrad II of Bavaria and his son, Henry, both of whom died young. According to the chronicler Lambert of Hersfeld, the Saxon Rebellion broke out when on 29 June 1073 several nobles marched against the king residing in the Imperial Palace of Goslar. Henry had to flee along with the Imperial Regalia into the walls of the Harzburg. The besieging forces led by Otto of Nordheim and Bishop Burchard II of Halberstadt allegedly numbered 60,000 whilst his garrison only had 300 men. The king finally fled to Franconia in the night to 10 August, according to legend, through the well of the besieged castle and a secret passage. The king initially did not gain much support by the German princes and in the 1074 Treaty of Gerstungen he was forced to agree to slight his castles, including the Harzburg. He hesitated, however, and only had the walls and towers demolished, whilst the buildings themselves remained. But in the spring of 1074 the Harzburg was plundered by annoyed peasants and completely destroyed. The collegiate church was not spared and the royal family tomb was desecrated. This incident prompted widespread indignation and gave Henry cause to advance with all his might against the rebellious Saxons again and so, on 9 June 1075, the rebels were defeated at the Battle of Langensalza. Henry IV never returned to the Harzburg. Pope Gregory VII, who would become a bitter enemy during the Investiture Controversy, imposed a ban on the devastated site. In January 1077, the king had to make the Walk to Canossa to obtain the revocation of his excommunication. ------------------- This video is available in other languages.

War of the Austrian Succession
 
01:23:57
The War of the Austrian Succession involved most of the powers of Europe over the question of Maria Theresa's succession to the realms of the House of Habsburg. The war included King George's War in North America, the War of Jenkins' Ear, the First Carnatic War in India, and the First and Second Silesian Wars. The war began under the pretext that Maria Theresa was ineligible to succeed to the Habsburg thrones of her father, Charles VI, because Salic law precluded royal inheritance by a woman—though it was commonly thought that the challenge of liability was an excuse put forward by Prussia and France to challenge Habsburg power. Austria was supported by Great Britain and the Dutch Republic, the traditional enemies of France, as well as the Kingdom of Sardinia and the Electorate of Saxony. France and Prussia were allied with the Electorate of Bavaria. This video is targeted to blind users. Attribution: Article text available under CC-BY-SA Creative Commons image source in video

JAR, Svazijsko, Mosambik na kole (6.) HD / S.Africa,Swaziland,Mosambique on bicycle (6.)
 
33:08
Projíždíme územím postiženém blíže nespecifikovaným onemocněním úst a nohou, překonáváme poslední záludná stoupání a vjíždíme do Mosambiku. Země, jež je stále z velké části zaminovaná po občanské válce, která zde zuřila v 70. a 80. letech dvacátého století, a která má na své vlajce vyobrazený kalašnikov. S přejezdem hranice musíme plynule přejít do portugalštiny, jazyka, jenž zde zanechal mořeplavec Vasco de Gama a další, po něm připluvší kolonizátoři. Po nedobrovolně strávené noci v Boane (k našemu velkému překvapení nemá ani vševědoucí Google zdejší síť silnic stoprocentně pokrytou) dosahujeme našeho vytouženého cíle. Předtím, než se ubytujeme v třílůžkovém minipokojíku uprostřed milionového Maputa, se ještě zastavujeme ve slumu na předměstí, kde překvapeným dětem rozdáváme poslední hračky a oblečení. Rezervujeme si autobus zpět do Johannesburgu a po Avenidě V.I.Lenina míříme k Indickému Oceánu. Velkolepé oslavy mohou začít! Další díl za 2 týdny We ride through an area affected by an unspecified mouth and feet disease, climb last steep hills and arrive in Mozambique. A country that is still full of mines after the civil war that raged here in the 70s and 80s of the twentieth century and which has a Kalashnikov machine gun on its flag. After crossing a border we have to smoothly switch to Portuguese, language that was introduced here by Vasco de Gama and other colonizers. After involuntary overnight stay in Boane (to our great surprise, not even the all-knowing Google has local road network 100% covered) we reach desired final destination. Before finding a small triple room in the centre of Maputo, we visit a slum in the suburbs, where we hand out the rest of toys and clothes to surprised kids. We reserve a bus back to Johannesburg and along Avenida V.I.Lenina we head towards the Indian Ocean. Spectacular celebrations may begin!

Tuff
 
18:01
Tuff is a type of rock made of volcanic ash ejected from a vent during a volcanic eruption. Following ejection and deposition, the ash is compacted into a solid rock in a process called consolidation. Tuff is sometimes called tufa, particularly when used as construction material, although tufa also refers to a quite different rock. Rock that contains greater than 50% tuff is considered tuffaceous. Tuff is a relatively soft rock, so it has been used for construction since ancient times. Since it is common in Italy the Romans used it often for construction. The Rapa Nui people used it to make most of the moai statues in Easter Island. This video is targeted to blind users.

Lower Saxony
 
34:03
Lower Saxony (German: Niedersachsen [ˈniːdɐzaksən], Low German: Neddersassen) is a German state (Bundesland) situated in northwestern Germany and is second in area, with 47,624 square kilometres (18,388 sq mi), and fourth in population (8 million) among the sixteen Länder of Germany. In rural areas Northern Low Saxon, a dialect of Low German, and Saterland Frisian, a variety of East Frisian, are still spoken, but the number of speakers is declining. Lower Saxony borders on (from north and clockwise) the North Sea, the states of Schleswig-Holstein, Hamburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Brandenburg, Saxony-Anhalt, Thuringia, Hesse and North Rhine-Westphalia, and the Netherlands. Furthermore, the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen forms two enclaves within Lower Saxony, one being the city of Bremen, the other, its seaport city of Bremerhaven. In fact, Lower Saxony borders more neighbours than any other single Bundesland. The state's principal cities include the state capital Hanover, Brunswick, Lüneburg, Osnabrück, Oldenburg, Hildesheim, Wolfenbüttel, Wolfsburg and Göttingen. This video is targeted to blind users.

German Christmas Pyramid, Fredericksburg TX
 
01:19
Christmas pyramids had their roots in the Erzgebirge (Ore Mountains), a mining region in the eastern part of Germany. When the mining industry lost importance, the people of the region decided to use their woodworking skills to start a new trade. Today, the skilled craftsmen of the Erzgebirge manufacture internationally collected Christmas pyramids, nutcrackers, smokers, candle arches, music boxes and many other wooden figurines. Traditional Christmas pyramids are wooden carousel-like structures that have several levels depicting Christmas motifs, such as angels, nutcrackers and manger scenes. The rotating motion of the pyramids is traditionally achieved by the rising heat from candles spinning the propeller at the top of the pyramid. Christmas pyramids are popular in homes across Germany and now in many parts of the United States. Today In many cities and towns in Germany, large-scale outdoor Christmas pyramids powered by electricity are located at the Marktplatz or other locations associated with Christmas celebrations. Nodding to its German heritage, Fredericksburg's 26 foot tall Christmas pyramid will be located at the Marktplatz, or the town square at the heart of town on Main Street. As has been the tradition for many years, all of the buildings along Main Street in Fredericksburg's historic district will be outlined with white lights, and new five foot Christmas wreaths will adorn utility poles along Main Street.

(English subtitle) In der Nähe der Universitätsstadt Göttingen liegt Deutschlands nördlichstes Basaltvorkommen. Der Abbau am Hohen Hagen wurde schon vor 40 Jahren eingestellt, aber seit 2004 führt ein Geologielehrpfad durch den Steinbruch. Dort wird erklärt, wie sich die Basaltvorkommen im Miozän herausbildeten und wie dieser Vulkanismus mit dem Leinegraben verbunden ist. Near the university town of Göttingen are Germany's northernmost basalt deposits. The mining at the Hohen Hagen ceased 40 years ago, but since 2004 a geology trail leads through the quarry. It explains how the basalt deposits were formed during the Miocene and how the volcanism is connected to the Leinegraben (Leine fracture zone).

Kalar Kahar
 
01:13
Lying 30 miles southwest of Chakwal on the Chakwal-Sargodha road, Kallar Kahar is known for its peacocks, for its freshwater lake, and for the Takht-e-Babri, a flat stage built of stone by emperor Babar to address his army while coming down from Kabul in the quest of the crown of Delhi. During his stay at Kallar Kahar, Babar also planted a garden, which still exists, called the Bagh-e-Safa. In his memoirs, the Tukht-e-Babri, Babar described Kallar Kahar as a "charming place with good air" and natural beauty. Kallar Kahar lake is situated in a beautiful valley in the southern mountainous area of potohar plateau in the salt range. It is located at an altitude of about 1500 ft from sea level. It is a natural lake which is fed by a natural fresh water spring at the base of hills. This spring water fills the lake up to a level and then overflows and makes a stream towards the north. The lake is not deep, so a lot of natural vegetation can be seen all around it and even in the middle. It is a natural breeding sanctuary for many birds, so it is an ideal place for bird watching. Some migratory birds can also be seen in particular season. Wild peacocks can be seen wandering around the area. Now and then their particular sound can be heard clearly. The great Mughal Ruler, Zaheer ud Din Babar visited this place in 1510 AD. He ordered the plantation of first Mughal Garden here and named it as Safa Garden or "Bagh-e-Safa". A large single stone, elevated, carved out sitting place is also present in the garden, known as throne of Babur " Takht-e-Babri". Kallar Kahar lake is located at a distance about 135 km from Rawalpindi via Chakwal road. It can be approached from Islamabad by Motorway at a distance of about 100 kms to the south and from chakwal it is about 30kms to the south-west on chakwal-Sargodha road.Katas Raj is a 3000-year-old town sacred to the Hindus and lies about 5 kilometres west of Choa Saidan Shah on the Choa-Kallar Kahar road. Its importance is derived from the fact that it contains over 100 temples built over a period of more than 1000 years by its Hindu Rajas. Some of these temples are dilapidated but a large number of them have been well maintained. Hindu pilgrims from all over Pakistan and India frequently visit this town to worship. Katas Raj at its peak time was the well renowned university; a famous mathematician Alberuni measured the circumference of the earth while he was studying the Sanskrit in that university. The tribes, clans and castes that inhabit this area are the Kahuts, Kassar, and Mair-Minhas in the east of the district, the Awans, in the Salt Range, the [Khokhar] in villages such as Dab, Khokhar Zer, Khokhar Bala and Bhatti Gujjar,[Qazis] most of them resident in Nachindi. The Jats (the main clans being the Bhutta, Khoti, Khingar, Gondal and Mekan) are found mainly in Chakwal tehsil, along the borders with Jhelum and Khushab district. The district is also home to Rajputs, such as the Chauhans of Ghazial, Janjua, Khokhar, Mair Minhas, Bhatti, Jalap and Khiwa tribes. Pathans, Gujars, Syed Arain Kashmiris and the Punjabi Sheikhs (including the famous Sahgal family). The physical features of the district, its tribes, its society and its economy all combine to make Chakwal one of the main recruiting areas for the Pakistan Army and the Pakistan Air Force. Main occupation of the people are Mining. Transport and poultry business also contributes imperatively towards the revenues of the district. At present district Chakwal consists of 4 subdivisions - Chakwal, Talagang , Choa Saidan Shah,and Kallar Kahar, 23 qanungois and 198 patwar circles. The police subdivisions correspond with those of the district administration and there are 11 police stations- Chakwal City, Saddar, Kallar Kahar, Dhumman, Nila, Dhudhial, Talagang City, Saddar, Tamman, Lawa and Choa Saidan Shah. The district is administratively subdivided into four tehsils and 68 Union Councils

The Vietnam War: Reasons for Failure - Why the U.S. Lost
 
01:45:58
In the post-war era, Americans struggled to absorb the lessons of the military intervention. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0871137992/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0871137992&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=d1bb53399f448906b40e7c954de052ac As General Maxwell Taylor, one of the principal architects of the war, noted, "First, we didn't know ourselves. We thought that we were going into another Korean War, but this was a different country. Secondly, we didn't know our South Vietnamese allies... And we knew less about North Vietnam. Who was Ho Chi Minh? Nobody really knew. So, until we know the enemy and know our allies and know ourselves, we'd better keep out of this kind of dirty business. It's very dangerous." Some have suggested that "the responsibility for the ultimate failure of this policy [America's withdrawal from Vietnam] lies not with the men who fought, but with those in Congress..." Alternatively, the official history of the United States Army noted that "tactics have often seemed to exist apart from larger issues, strategies, and objectives. Yet in Vietnam the Army experienced tactical success and strategic failure... The...Vietnam War...legacy may be the lesson that unique historical, political, cultural, and social factors always impinge on the military...Success rests not only on military progress but on correctly analyzing the nature of the particular conflict, understanding the enemy's strategy, and assessing the strengths and weaknesses of allies. A new humility and a new sophistication may form the best parts of a complex heritage left to the Army by the long, bitter war in Vietnam." U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger wrote in a secret memo to President Gerald Ford that "in terms of military tactics, we cannot help draw the conclusion that our armed forces are not suited to this kind of war. Even the Special Forces who had been designed for it could not prevail." Even Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara concluded that "the achievement of a military victory by U.S. forces in Vietnam was indeed a dangerous illusion." Doubts surfaced as to the effectiveness of large-scale, sustained bombing. As Army Chief of Staff Harold Keith Johnson noted, "if anything came out of Vietnam, it was that air power couldn't do the job." Even General William Westmoreland admitted that the bombing had been ineffective. As he remarked, "I still doubt that the North Vietnamese would have relented." The inability to bomb Hanoi to the bargaining table also illustrated another U.S. miscalculation. The North's leadership was composed of hardened communists who had been fighting for independence for thirty years. They had defeated the French, and their tenacity as both nationalists and communists was formidable. Ho Chi Minh is quoted as saying, "You can kill ten of my men for every one I kill of yours...But even at these odds you will lose and I will win." The Vietnam War called into question the U.S. Army doctrine. Marine Corps General Victor H. Krulak heavily criticised Westmoreland's attrition strategy, calling it "wasteful of American lives... with small likelihood of a successful outcome." In addition, doubts surfaced about the ability of the military to train foreign forces. Between 1965 and 1975, the United States spent $111 billion on the war ($686 billion in FY2008 dollars). This resulted in a large federal budget deficit. More than 3 million Americans served in the Vietnam War, some 1.5 million of whom actually saw combat in Vietnam. James E. Westheider wrote that "At the height of American involvement in 1968, for example, there were 543,000 American military personnel in Vietnam, but only 80,000 were considered combat troops." Conscription in the United States had been controlled by the President since World War II, but ended in 1973." By war's end, 58,220 American soldiers had been killed, more than 150,000 had been wounded, and at least 21,000 had been permanently disabled. According to Dale Kueter, "Sixty-one percent of those killed were age 21 or younger. Of those killed in combat, 86.3 percent were white, 12.5 percent were black and the remainder from other races." The youngest American KIA in the war was PFC Dan Bullock, who had falsified his birth certificate and enlisted in the US Marines at age 14 and who was killed in combat at age 15. Approximately 830,000 Vietnam veterans suffered symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder. An estimated 125,000 Americans fled to Canada to avoid the Vietnam draft, and approximately 50,000 American servicemen deserted. In 1977, United States President Jimmy Carter granted a full, complete and unconditional pardon to all Vietnam-era draft dodgers. The Vietnam War POW/MIA issue, concerning the fate of U.S. service personnel listed as missing in action, persisted for many years after the war's conclusion. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vietnam_War

Wealth and Power in America: Social Class, Income Distribution, Finance and the American Dream
 
01:36:58
Wealth in the United States is commonly measured in terms of net worth, which is the sum of all assets, including home equity, minus all liabilities. More on the topic: https://www.amazon.com/gp/search?ie=UTF8&tag=tra0c7-20&linkCode=ur2&linkId=ff2efe1946d5c4d43e435783f57e86dc&camp=1789&creative=9325&index=books&keywords=wealth%20america For example, a household in possession of an $800,000 house, $5,000 in mutual funds, $30,000 in cars, $20,000 worth of stock in their own company, and a $45,000 IRA would have assets totaling $900,000. Assuming that this household would have a $250,000 mortgage, $40,000 in car loans, and $10,000 in credit card debt, its debts would total $300,000. Subtracting the debts from the worth of this household's assets (900,000 - $300,000 = $600,000), this household would have a net worth of $600,000. Net worth can vary with fluctuations in value of the underlying assets. The wealth—more specifically, the median net worth—of households in the United States is varied with relation to race, education, geographic location and gender. As one would expect, households with greater income feature the highest net worths, though high income cannot be taken as an always accurate indicator of net worth. Overall the number of wealthier households is on the rise, with baby boomers hitting the highs of their careers. In addition, wealth is unevenly distributed, with the wealthiest 25% of US households owning 87% of the wealth in the United States, which was $54.2 trillion in 2009. When observing the changes in the wealth among American households, one can note an increase in wealthier individuals and a decrease in the number of poor households, while net worth increased most substantially in semi-wealthy and wealthy households. Overall the percentage of households with a negative net worth (more debt than assets) declined from 9.5% in 1989 to 4.1% in 2001. The percentage of net worths ranging from $500,000 to one million doubled while the percentage of millionaires tripled. From 1995 to 2004, there was tremendous growth among household wealth, as it nearly doubled from $21.9 trillion to $43.6 trillion, but the wealthiest quartile of the economic distribution made up 89% of this growth. During this time frame, wealth became increasingly unequal, and the wealthiest 25% became even wealthier. According to US Census Bureau statistics this "Upward shift" is most likely the result of a booming housing market which caused homeowners to experience tremendous increases in home equity. Life-cycles have also attributed to the rising wealth among Americans. With more and more baby-boomers reaching the climax of their careers and the middle aged population making up a larger segment of the population now than ever before, more and more households have achieved comfortable levels of wealth. Zhu Xiao Di (2004) notes that household wealth usually peaks around families headed by people in their 50s, and as a result, the baby boomer generation reached this age range at the time of the analysis. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wealth_in_the_United_States
