A sign of the time.

"We want to bring back fish processing jobs from China to Canada, so we'll build robots."

How many Canadians will be hired as robot repairers versus the lost local fish processor jobs

Pretending it's patriotic doesn't hide the fact there's few wage earners.

I saw him perform this live at a Concert in Paris just a few days ago, it was epic. Everything I'd hoped for.

Produced for the U.S. Navy, this 1946 cartoon LANDING ACCIDENTS tells the cautionary tale of a distracted Navy flier who crashes his plane during a landing. The film looks at the proper procedures during approach, including use of a check list, and the importance of "going around" when things are not ideal.

This cartoon was doubtless inspired by the work of Lt. Robert Osborn, who in 1943 in collaboration with Commander Seth Warner, created a “sage of safety” character known as Grandpa Pettibone for a column in the BUAER News Letter (produced by the Bureau of Aeronautics). The column addressed the increasing aircraft mishap rate. Osborn’s illustrations commingled with Warner’s narrative accounts of aircraft accidents. Following a description of a mishap, the old curmudgeon aviator railed at young fliers for making stupid mistakes. More than one aviator caught in a pinch in the sky has suddenly remembered a timely pearl of wisdom from Gramps that helped the flier avoid a costly- and perhaps fatal-error.

Osborn was also the creator of more than 2,000 “Dilbert the Pilot” and “Spoiler the Mechanic” posters. These safety gems were liberally displayed in hangars and aboard ships during WW II and into the 1950s. In addition, he produced “Sense” pamphlets, which gave WW II fliers common sense safety rules on aviation subjects, such as “Flight Deck Sense.”

I love the old mini doco's that came out of the states in the 40's and 50's especially from the Navy etc. Bet you would never see this one played now days to the forces.
