Schofield Barracks

Schofield Barracks is a United States Army installation and census-designated place located in the City and County of Honolulu and in the Wahiawa District of the American island of Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi. Schofield Barracks lies adjacent to the town of Wahiawā, separated from most of it by Lake Wilson. Schofield Barracks is named after Lieutenant General John McAllister Schofield, Commanding General United States Army August 1888 to September 1895, he had been sent to Hawaiʻi in 1872 and had recommended the establishment of a naval base at Pearl Harbor. Schofield Barracks has an area of 17,725 acres on Central Oʻahu; the post was established in 1908 to provide mobile defense of the entire island. It has been the home of the 25th Infantry Division, known as the Tropic Lightning Division, since 1941 as well as the headquarters for United States Army Hawaii; the population was 16,370 at the 2010 census. Schofield Barracks is located at 21°29′52″N 158°3′48″W; the Main Gate used to be off Wilikina Drive. Proceeding north on Wilikina Road leads to intersections with Kaukonahua Road to Waialua and Kamehameha Highway to Haleʻiwa.

East on Wilikina leads to Kamehameha Highway to Wahiawā and Mililani Town. Proceeding south on Kunia Road past Schofield leads to the Kunia Gate on Wheeler and Waipahu. According to the United States Census Bureau, the post has a total area of 2.8 square miles, all of it land. Schofield Barracks has a tropical savanna climate; this climate type is shared with Honolulu but is in general cooler year round owing to the elevation, but is still well within the realms of the tropic regime. Precipitation patterns resemble those of mediterranean climates being found in mainland California, but its warm winters prevents the climate from being classified as such; as of the 2000 census, there were 14,428 people, 2,965 households, 2,902 families residing in the CDP. The population density was 5,251.5 people per square mile. There were 3,733 housing units at an average density of 1,358.7 per square mile. The racial makeup of the CDP was 56.4% White, 21.9% African American, 1.1% Native American, 3.9% Asian, 1.7% Pacific Islander, 8.6% from other races, 6.5% from two or more races.

Hispanic or Latino of any race were 16.2% of the population. There were 2,965 households out of which 78.0% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 91.5% were married couples living together, 4.8% had a female householder with no husband present, 2.1% were non-families. 2.0% of all households were made up of individuals and none had someone living alone, 65 years of age or older. The average household size was 3.55 and the average family size was 3.58. In the CDP the population was spread out with 32.1% under the age of 18, 29.8% from 18 to 24, 36.6% from 25 to 44, 1.4% from 45 to 64, 0.1% who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 22 years. For every 100 females, there were 152.3 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 183.6 males. The median income for a household in the CDP was $33,788, the median income for a family was $32,970. Males had a median income of $21,112 versus $18,737 for females; the per capita income for the CDP was $12,316. About 6.7% of families and 7.2% of the population were below the poverty line, including 8.5% of those under age 18 and none of those age 65 or over.

The Main Post area consists of numerous quadrangle-style barracks and unit command structures, most of which have a letter designation. B and C Quads are the oldest, having been constructed in the 1910s, with D, E, F quads being built later. Additionally on Main Post are the PX, the Commissary, the "Aloha Building", the Library, Bowling Alley, Uniform Clothing Store. Several sets of barracks have been constructed adhering to a more stylish apartment-type setup; the Nehelani Club, Old Nehelani Club and Conroy Bowl are in the Main Post area as well. Much of the housing on-post has been rebuilt now that the housing has been privatized; the enlisted housing area lies to the west of Main Post, while the officers' housing lies to the north along Wilikina Drive. Island Palms is the on-post housing company, part of Lend Lease, responsible for maintaining the units; the average wait time for housing is 2–6 months and up to one year for larger homes. Area X and its environs constitute the bulk of the training areas on Schofield Barracks.

Large open areas allow for air assault operations to land. Covered concrete pads can provide shelter for units training in the area who do not wish to deal with sleeping in the field; the range control office as well as numerous semi-automated and other firing ranges are contained within this area as well. The Air Assault School, Land Navigation Course, designated training areas are laid out in this area to the east of the Main Post and the Enlisted Housing area; the bulk of the EIB train up and testing are done in this area. Kolekole Road, which passes through the Enlisted Housing Area and West Post Training Area, leads up to a saddle named Kolekole Pass which allows vehicle traffic to flow between Schofield Barracks and Lualualei Naval Magazine as well as being an intermediate destination for physical training runs by soldiers stationed on Schofield Barracks. A 37-foot, 35-ton steel cross located at Kolekole Pass was dismantled by the Army in 1997 after Hawaii Citizens for the Separation of State and Church filed a federal

Fred Gruen

Fred Henry George Gruen was an Australian economist, an early and influential voice in favour of free trade and tariff reductions in the 1960s and 1970s. Fritz Heinz Georg Grün was born in Vienna and known as'Heinzie' during his boyhood, he left Vienna in 1936 on the £200 legacy of an uncle to receive an English education at Herne Bay College. It was a good time for someone of Jewish descent to be leaving Austria, his father Willy, a heavy smoker, died of lung cancer while he was at school in England and his mother Marianne was engulfed in the Holocaust being taken first to Theresienstadt and thence to Auschwitz after which she was not seen again. Fred Gruen was unsure of. With consequences that would ramify at the end of his life, he worked for some time for a printer. In the same speech in which he promised to "fight on the beaches" Churchill announced widespread internment. "I know there are a great many people affected by the orders which we have made who are the passionate enemies of Nazi Germany.

I am sorry for them, but we cannot, at the present time and under the present stress, draw all the distinctions which we should like to do." Gruen was one such. He was interned and shipped to Australia in the HMT Dunera, a boat that became famous for the talent it brought to Australia and for the unpleasantness with which its human cargo was treated, they encountered a more relaxed attitude in Australia – one guard summing up the character of the'friendly enemy aliens' and famously asking one of them to hold his rifle while he lit a cigarette. Still, they were transported to a camp in Hay, a remote town in NSW. Both on the boat trip to Australia and thence at Hay, Gruen benefited from the ubiquity of educated fellow inmates from musicians to philosophers of considerable standing in Europe; these people became mentors, Miss Margaret Read of the Student Christian Movement assisted Gruen and others in accessing books and other University resources for study. Gruen graduated from the University of Melbourne, given the difficulty he experienced studying – either in the camp or in war service – Gruen described the results he achieved as mediocre.

After the war he married Ann Margaret Darvall in May 1947. He commenced work as a graduate at the NSW Department of Agriculture, but it became clear to him that he could not get adequate training in Australia. So the couple went to the United States, he studied there for two years, first at the University of Wisconsin–Madison and at the University of Chicago. Though he completed the examinations for his PhD, Gruen did not finish the degree as the intensity of his study led to a serious thyroid condition. Without drugs, developed shortly before the condition would have been life-threatening. However, it was treated and its only legacy for the rest of his life was the exemplary balance Gruen kept in his life, he worked not obsessively for the rest of his life. Returning to Australia he worked for 12 years in the NSW Department of Agriculture where he met and was assisted by many young people who made their marks in agricultural and other areas of economics, his sons David and Nicholas were born in April 1957 respectively.

In 1959 he moved to a research position at the Australian National University in Canberra for five years under T. W. Swan and thence to Monash University in Melbourne to become Professor of Agricultural Economics in 1964. Gruen's achievements in nine years at Monash include leading a major long range forecasting study on Australian agriculture funded by the US Department of Agriculture. Though John Freebairn subsequently tested its price projections for 1970 and found them "neither more or less accurate than the naïve model price forecasts" the study achieved worthwhile technical advances which contributed to the building of Australia's ORANI model at Monash University; the most influential paper Gruen wrote during this period was never published. It set-off the Australian'tariff compensation' debate in the late 1960s; the arguments were taken up in the 1970s generating considerable professional interest and controversy. Gruen pointed to the way in which tariffs for manufactures imposed costs on export industries agricultural industries.

As an early and strong advocate of lower levels of industry assistance, Gruen's point was not to advocate additional assistance for farmers so much as to challenge the idea that farmers might have low levels of assistance removed before manufactures had higher levels of assistance removed. He caviled at the "attitude... that anything any farm pressure group asked for was ipso facto unjustifiable". Gruen commissioned Professor Peter Lloyd to write the survey of Australian economics of protection which would survey the tariff compensation debate. Lloyd had been one of Gruen's main opponents in the tariff compensation debate and his survey argued that the case for tariff compensation had been overstated – including in a Green Paper on Rural Policy in 1974 of which Gruen was a co-signatory. Gruen agreed with Lloyd's analysis on the point. Gruen published a theoretical curiosity with Max Corden in 1970 "A tariff that worsens the terms of trade", though it was focused on a specific policy problem.

In response to growing unease at Monash University, Gruen attempted to engage with the more reasonab

Quebec sovereignty movement

The Quebec sovereignty movement is a political movement as well as an ideology of values and ideas that advocates independence for the Canadian province of Quebec. Several diverse political groups coalesced in the late 1960s in the formation of the Parti québécois, a provincial political party. Since 1968 the party has appealed for constitutional negotiations on the matter of provincial sovereignty, in addition to holding two provincial referendums on the matter; the first, which occurred in 1980, asked whether Quebecers wished to open constitutional negotiations with the federal government for the intended purpose of establishing a "sovereignty-association" pact between the province of Quebec and the rest of Canada. 60% of Quebec's voting public rejected the idea put forth by Parti québécois leader René Lévesque. The matter was dropped by the party for most of the 1980s after the patriation of the Canadian constitution without the consent of the Parti québécois government, the creation of the federal Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which enshrined the protection of the French language and French-Canadian culture in Canada.

In 1995, after two failed attempts by the Mulroney government to secure Quebec's ratification of amendments to the constitution, the Parti québécois held a second referendum, though on this occasion the question was whether one wished for the independence of the province of Quebec from the rest of Canada. The response was again in the negative, though this time by a far closer margin, with 50.58% against the proposal. Though the Parti Québécois has long spearheaded the sovereignty movement, it is not alone. Other minority provincial political parties, such as Option nationale and Québec solidaire supported sovereignty, but were not always supportive of the Parti québécois, it should be noted that, on the federal level, another party, the Bloc québécois support the independance of the province. The Quebec Liberal Party, Quebec's other primary political party until the 2018 provincial elections, is opposed to increasing political sovereignty for the province, but has been at odds, on occasion, with various Canadian federal governments.

Thus, the Quebec politic scene was divided into two camps, principally opposed over the sovereignty issue, until 2018. Quebec sovereignty is politically opposed to the competing ideology of Canadian federalism. Most groups within this movement seek to gain independence through peaceful means, using negotiation-based diplomatic intervention, although fringe groups have advocated and used violent means; the overwhelming number of casualties came from attacks by the Front de libération du Québec, a militant organization which perpetrated a bombing and armed robbery campaign from 1963 to 1970, culminating in the October Crisis and the death of Deputy Premier Pierre Laporte. Since this time all mainstream sovereignist groups have sworn off violence, while extremist nationalist groups, though in the minority, support violent actions in the name of liberating Quebec from Canadian sovereignty; the primary mainstream political vehicle for the movement is the Parti Québécois, which has governed Quebec on multiple occasions.

In 2012 it was elected to a minority government, in which its leader, Pauline Marois, became the first female Premier of Quebec. However, only eighteen months the PQ was defeated by the Liberal Party of Quebec in the 2014 election. In practice, "separatist" and "sovereignist" are terms used to describe individuals wanting the province of Quebec to separate from Canada to become a country of its own; the term "independentist" is preferred by some supporters. In practice, the term "Federalist" was used to define people who stood with and agreed with confederation in other words agreeing that Quebec should not be an independent country. Justifications for Quebec's sovereignty are nationalistic in character, claiming the unique culture and French-speaking majority are threatened with assimilation by either the rest of Canada or, as in Metropolitan France, by Anglophone culture more and that the best way to preserve language and culture is via the creation of an independent political entity. Other distinguishing factors, such as religious differences, are used to justify either separation or nationalist social policies advocated by the Parti Québécois.

The historical justification is that Quebec should be independent by virtue of New France having been conquered by the British in 1763 and subsequently relinquished to the British in exchange for Guadeloupe. It argues that the people of Quebec are the descendants of a conquered people who are due their national sovereignty; this perspective was popular in the 1950s and 1960s when European countries were giving up their colonies in the name of independence throughout much of Africa, the Middle East and South Asia. Eight of the other Canadian provinces are overwhelmingly English-speaking, while New Brunswick is bilingual and about one-third Francophone. Another rationale is based on resentment of anti-Quebec sentiment. With regard to the creation of the sovereignist movement, language issues were but a sub-stratum of larger cultural and political differences. Many scholars point to historical events as framing the cause for ongoing support for sovereignty in Quebec, while more contemporary politicians may point to the aftermath of more recent developments like the Canada Act of 1982, the Meech Lake Accor
