First a few images. Hover your mouse over each thumbnail to read the subject matter. The operational dates above are surely not perfect. A ‘best effort’ at a sequence, if you will. If you can refine the information, do be in touch. Information on the history of ‘Blumer’ of Sunderland seems to be quite limited. But much of the data that follows is thanks to the efforts of Ray Ranns, who lives near Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire, U.
Ray has been most busy assembling data about the family history, building upon materials assembled by his father ‘Noel Blumer Ranns’. Of which John Blumer was one. But you should also know that the Blumer family was involved in shipbuilding in nearby Hartlepool. While the business was mainly in the repair of ships they did keep their workforce busy with new construction when the repair business was quiet. And they built 10 vessels during the short lifetime of the firm. Which ceased to exist at or about the time that George Blumer died in

SHARE Although studying creativity is considered a legitimate scientific discipline nowadays, it is still a very young one. In the early s, a psychologist named J. Guilford was one of the first academic researchers who dared to conduct a study of creativity. He challenged research subjects to connect all nine dots using just four straight lines without lifting their pencils from the page. Today many people are familiar with this puzzle and its solution.
In the s, however, very few were even aware of its existence, even though it had been around for almost a century. If you have tried solving this puzzle, you can confirm that your first attempts usually involve sketching lines inside the imaginary square. The correct solution, however, requires you to draw lines that extend beyond the area defined by the dots. Only 20 percent managed to break out of the illusory confinement and continue their lines in the white space surrounding the dots.
The symmetry, the beautiful simplicity of the solution, and the fact that 80 percent of the participants were effectively blinded by the boundaries of the square led Guilford and the readers of his books to leap to the sweeping conclusion that creativity requires you to go outside the box. The idea went viral via s-era media and word of mouth, of course. Overnight, it seemed that creativity gurus everywhere were teaching managers how to think outside the box.
Management consultants in the s and s even used this puzzle when making sales pitches to prospective clients. Because the solution is, in hindsight, deceptively simple, clients tended to admit they should have thought of it themselves.
The “L” in An “L” Train passing over the Chicago river in The first “L”, the Chicago and South Side Rapid Transit Railroad , began revenue service on June 6, , when a steam locomotive pulling four wooden coaches, carrying more than a couple of dozen people, departed the 39th Street station and arrived at the Congress Street Terminal 14 minutes later,  over tracks that are still in use by the Green Line. The Metropolitan was the United States’ first non-exhibition rapid transit system powered by electric traction motors ,  a technology whose practicality had been demonstrated in on the “intramural railway” at the World Fair that had been held in Chicago.
Electrification and MU control remain standard features of most of the world’s rapid transit systems.

Admiral Chegwidden, the Father to His Men also qualifies. Sturgis’ father, the Navy chaplain, also qualifies as he served in both Korea and Vietnam as well. The main characters, with the exceptions of Bud and Harriet, are prone to this. Chegwidden is the king of this trope though.
Asiatic Fleet were in defensive positions around the Philippines. More submarines than the entire German U-boat fleet at the beginning of World War I; indeed, more submarines than had ever been assembled for one battle at the same time. They might as well have been in San Diego. For the losing three-week Philippine campaign, with potential targets including seventy-six loaded transports and supply ships, the Americans averaged only two attacks per submarine, and sank only three Japanese ships.
Only one American submarine was lost. That is not meant as a compliment.

In ” cyclic ” landing operations the “clear deck” light may come just seconds before the next landing. The idea is that if the aircraft experiences a problem requiring it to ditch , it won’t get run over by the ship. Clearing turns were evidently thought up by the brass , since they make little sense:
