In 1965, Cmdr. James Bond Stockdale was shot down over North Vietnam and was the senior U.S. naval officer captured by the North Vietnamese. 
From the start, Stockdale refused to cooperate with his captors. After being caught urging other POWs to resist, he and 10 other senior POWs were taken to another jail block where they were frequently tortured. He spent two years in heavy leg irons and four years in isolation, but he didn't waver. He led the POWs' culture of defiance, finding ways to communicate and govern prisoner behavior that gave them all hope.In several instances, Stockdale deliberately disfigured his face with sharp objects or by beating it against the bars so that the Vietnamese could not use him in propaganda broadcasts. 
Stockdale was awarded a Medal of Honor when he was released after over seven years in captivity.

A Deserted Long Island Farmhouse Stayed Unnoticed for Four Decades!


Although there are nearly eight million homeowners in the heavily urbanized state of New York, some are much more interesting than others. Each construction has a tale, some of which tell conflicting narratives every day.

Others have occurrences that are buried deep down for years, merely desperately looking to be accessed. This particular property did wait for somebody to unearth the secret behind the walls for forty years.

White Males Are Bailing on College And why wouldn’t they? They are Public Enemy Number One on most campuses. reports: “Trade schools also offer a shorter timeline to a real paycheck than most educational paths. Bachelor’s degrees take four years or more to earn — a long time to wait if making a decent wage is your primary goal. By contrast, many vocational certificates can be earned in two years, while others take a year or less.”

In the future, a young man might come home from the factory, grab a beer, and watch the classic frat house comedy “Animal House,” wondering to himself, “I thought college was just for women.”

That’s an exaggeration, but the numbers don’t lie: Fewer men are attending colleges and universities, pushing aside opportunities to stroll across the campus green in favor of trade schools or good old-fashioned work.

“At the close of the 2020-21 academic year,” The Wall Street Journal reports, “women made up 59.5% of college students, an all-time high, and men 40.5%, according to enrollment data from the National Student Clearinghouse, a nonprofit research group. U.S. colleges and universities had 1.5 million fewer students compared with five years ago, and men accounted for 71% of the decline.”
