|Nazis had come from
Rhoda was not blind to the Nazi abuses. After her first walk in the Tiergarten, she refused to go back. It was far more clean, pretty, and charming than any American public park, she admitted, but the signs on the benches, juDEN vERBoTEN, were nauseating. Seeing similar signs in restaurant windows, she would recoil and demand to go elsewhere. Pug told her of his interview with Rosenthal, she had a deep attack of,the blues: she wanted to forgo the house and even talked of getting out of Germany. "My, imagine! Renting out that beautiful house for a song, just to keep it from being sold over his head-to some fat Nazi, no doubt, lying in wait to pick it off cheap. How horrible." But she agreed that they had better take it.
They had to live somewhere, and the house was divine. Day by day, she reacted less to such things, seeing how commonplace they were in Berlin, and how much taken for granted. When Sally Forrest, who loathed the Nazis, took her to lunch at a restaurant where a window placard announced that Jews were not served, it seemed silly to protest. Soon she ate in such places without a second thought. In time, the Tiergarten became her favorite place for a Sunday stroll. But she insisted that anti-Semitism was a blot on an otherwise exciting, lovely land. She would say so to prominent Nazis. Some stiffened, others tolerantly smirked. A few hinted that the problem would straighten out in time. "I'm an American to the bone, going back six generations," she would say, 'and I'll never see eye to eye with you on this business of the Jews. It's absolutely awful."
Most Germans seemed resigned to this independent, outspoken manner of American women and the way their husbands tolerated it; they regarded it as a national oddity. Victor Henry stayed off the Jewish topic. Nazi Germany was a big, not readily digestible lump of new life. Most foreigners were strongly for or against the Nazis. The correspondents, as Kip Tollever had observed, hated them to a man. Within the embassy views varied. According to some, Hitler was the greatest menace to America since 1776. He would stop at nothing less than world rule, and the day he was strong enough, he would attack the United States. Others saw him as a benefactor, the only bulwark in Europe against Communism. The democracies had shown themselves impotent against the spread of Bolshevist parties, they said.
Hitler fought totalitarian fire with hotter and stronger fire. These judgments, either way, stood on slender bases of knowledge. Pressing his new acquaintances for facts, Victor Henry got vehement opinions and gestures. Statistics abounded in sheaves of analyses and rePorts, but too much of this stuff came down to guesses, propaganda, and questionable paid intelligence. He tried to study German history late at night and found it a muddy tangle going back more than a thousand years. In it he could find no pattern and no guide at all to the problems Of 1939. just to figure out where the Nazis had come from, and what the secret was of Hitler's hold on the Germans, seemed a task beyond him and beyond anybody he talked to; even the outlandish question of German anti-Semitismhad a dozen different explanations, depending on which of any twelve Foreign Service men you asked. Commander Henry decided that he would grope uselessly if he tried to fathom these major matters in a hurry.
Military capacity was something he knew about; it was a narrow but derisive aspect of Hitler's Third Empire. Was Nazi Germany as strong as the ever-marching columns in the streets, and the throngs of uniforms in cafes, suggested? Was it all a show, no more substantial than the transparent red cheesecloth of the towering swastika banners? Deciding to take nothing for granted and to marshal facts for himself, Victor Henry dug into the job of penetrating this one puzzle.

|certainly that is the point'
The company’s SkyDeck is a clear bubble that pokes up out of the top of an airplane. One or two passengers access this viewing dome via a staircase, or (rather showily) in an elevator. Once they are head and shoulders above the fuselage, they may rotate their seats to view some particular object — the sunset, or a constellation, or a cloud that looks a lot like a bunny. The bubble is made of the same material as the canopies of a supersonic fighter jet, and it’s a teardrop shape mounted just before the tail to have the smallest possible effect on aerodynamics. Its feasibility has been studied a thousand different ways, patents and trademarks have been applied for, and an aircraft manufacturer has begun offering it as an option on its custom builds — though there are not yet reports of orders taken.
Does the SkyDeck seem a bit… erm… over the top? Yes, but certainly that is the point. Windspeed identifies business and VIP aircraft as their primary market, where amenities like the SkyDeck make sense because airplanes made of solid gold are too heavy to fly. But the company also sees a commercial application, where, they say, “Current in-flight entertainment offerings have not changed much over the decades” (as if SkyDeck were the logical successor to seatback entertainment systems). In this bright future, airlines would charge passengers for a trip up to the SkyDeck, providing an additional revenue stream for beleaguered airlines that have not yet found enough things to charge for.

If life is a drama is variant, the youth is a magnificent book, sending out the faint fragrance; Childhood, is the most beautiful chapter in the book. This book as down in the sand in the wind, the dispersed and stacking accumulation and blow, and I like the youth, and sometimes like miss sat upstairs and blue, and sometimes like a butterfly dancing, dancing like a phoenix nine days, if the lotus and pure.
I like it like a candle, the small core core to keep the flame, thin, warm warm, lit up the heart; Like the colour of it is like the sun, gentle and continuous touched a chord; Prefer it as selfless as great grandfather, abandoned the ego, lit up the others.
Since the childhood, I was brought up great grandfather.
Six years ago. I live in hangzhou, a paradise, "said the town; In lower electricity don't know what's going on, at eight o 'clock in the evening, always power on time. At this time, the great grandfather is from home to the highest cabinets pulled out a box of candles, small candles as quietly as wrapped in a red blanket baby lying in the box, quietly fall asleep. Great grandfather with took out a root, burning and jolly. I wore a white nightgown holding the candle stands his bare feet on the ground, you looked at me and smile of tears, said. "This angel how to bare feet!" I smiled, as quiet smile. With tender voice, again and again sing what's your favorite small poplar. Ask you pick me in your arms; "Man to buy it when I grew up eating give great grandfather?" I replied without hesitation: "buy! I bought the best great grandfather the lollipop!" You laugh, like flowers bloom.
Downstairs friend call me go out to play, are you afraid of my accident, I tied at home with candles. You take out a box of small candles, slowly put on the table a love, I don't understand, ask; "Why the candle into love?" You smiled, kind smile, like a stream, slowly flows through my heart; "Who let you in great grandfather heart!" Oh! The original core candle placed great grandfather is! Pestering my great grandfather, even a moment, he set up again; Love is the love, only more long candles in the middle. I glance back and forth, but still do not understand, great grandfather as if see through my mind, edge drawing; "Great grandfather call neutral, great grandfather's only you in the heart, also only you." Oh! Then it dawned on me, looking at great grandfather that wrinkled face, acidity in the heart, the time the old man, can you slow down?
On the way to school, I rode my bicycle fly general heading home, all of a sudden, heard the song both familiar and unfamiliar rang out from the small poplar companion I grew up a candle, and that the deepest memory of you. Swing, six years have passed, I have from a dazed girl turned into a big girl. Can you great grandfather? You in heaven?
The fallen leaves, describes the autumn grandeur; White clouds floating, foil a beautiful blue sky; Head strands of white hair, you tell me the "candle" to her.
Oh! The candle intentional also farewell banquets, cry until morning.
Youth is a tear, it is constantly pouncing on, toward the future. Youth pounce on, as if had not over the years, wait for the youth, just know, only into the air, left the 1: ah! Youth!
