The Future Is Upon Us – Travel founder

I bethink continuing out in my foreground backyard as a adolescent one evening, I was apparently about 5 or six years old.

At the time I lived in southern Indiana and searching appear the east, I saw Washington D.C. traveling up in flames. I hardly knew what Washington D.C. was, I had heard it was our nation’s capital, but accepting as adolescent as I was I didn’t apprehend what the city-limits stood for.

I just knew our government was in agitation and it seemed as if it was a few years afterwards the about-face of the 21st century. It seemed to be absolutely adverse times.

This was about 1950, so it seemed absolutely far off, and I appealing abundant forgot about it.

Several years later, in the astern 80s, I had an befalling to allege with a actual abreast and automatic lady. Anyone who should accept been famous, but wasn’t.

She gave me the aforementioned advice about the advancing turmoil, repeating what I had heard in my youth.

I listened to what she had said, but it never absolutely registered how bad it could get, we had just survived the protests of the sixties, how abundant worse could it be?

She said there would be abundant agitation and discontent, but it would be bedfast to the above cities and if we astern out of them we would be fine.

She said the problems would appear from the way the majority of our accouchement had been aloft afterwards the sixties, the allowance and abridgement of ascendancy abounding parents had over their kids, and the way American association had abandoned what had fabricated us great.

Soon afterwards that, I went to a motivational seminar, breadth Zig Ziglar was speaking, he said the aforementioned things, I still didn’t heed the warnings.

Most of us were aloft in a altered world, we were busier than a one-armed monkey at a flea festival. We aloft our kids in that world, but somehow things afflicted and humans forgot or didn’t anticipate it was important to bethink any more.

This is how a lot of cultures abatement and assuredly disappear, accepting taken over by a added barbarian society, until they no best exist.

I took it with a atom of alkali and went about my way as abounding others had done who had heard the aforementioned warnings, afterwards all, our parents and grandparents had been adage the aforementioned affair for years, the apple was traveling to hell in a handbasket.

Soon it was the about-face of the century, and suddenly, the things I had apparent and was told about began advancing true.

It seemed anarchy was everywhere, no abstemiousness or discipline, no account for the law, or others, profanity, aggregate that was appropriate was wrong, and aggregate that was amiss was right.

Bad behavior became condoned and accepted, anyone who disagreed and remembered the ethics accomplished them at a adolescent age, were accursed and ridiculed.

Suddenly alteration things aback seemed about as difficult as abrading your ear with your elbow.

The apple had been angry upside down, and all the problems of the apple somehow seemed to be the accountability of the United States.

You apprehend consistently on the media and from some politicians how abhorrent a abode the United States is, how atrocious we are to minorities, the disabled, etc.

I activate during my travels, this is not the way the boilerplate accepting beyond the apple feels, that is alone media and political rhetoric, advised to advertise ads and accumulate votes by pandering to humanity’s basal trait, fear.

While in the outback of Australia, I got into a chat with a nineteen-year-old babe from Switzerland, she couldn’t accept why I would biking about besides America, she fabricated the account that if she lived in America, she would never leave, in her words,”America has aggregate a accepting could anytime wish or need.”

A few canicule later, we entered the tiny boondocks of Daly Waters in the Northern Territory. They were adulatory the 4th of July, accepting beholden of how the yanks adored them from the Japanese during WW2.

I’ve been on an Italian cruise address with about 4000 cartage and alone about 20% Americans, they sang our borough canticle and anybody stood up placed their easily over their affection and sang, giving us a two-minute continuing acclaim if the song was completed.

Most cerebration humans acknowledge and account what America has done over the endure 200 hundred additional years.

America has endured a lot, and I accept it has a apparent destiny. We would accept never become a nation or survived afterwards what George Washington would call, Divine Providence and Divine Intervention.

Fighting adjoin absurd odds, he generally gave acclaim to Divine Intervention for his successes.

Adhering to the basal credo of our country, the Constitution, Bill of Rights, Declaration of Independence and the Ten Commandments we accept asperous the abounding storms that accept befallen us.

Now we face a new challenge, maybe the a lot of analytical claiming in our history.

Before, the blackmail to our country has appear from without, now it comes from within.

Many accept abandoned what fabricated us abundant as a country or no best assume to anticipate it is important.

They assume to accept they can do and anticipate as they please, afterwards attention to anyone or annihilation else.

We accept absent our way.

As I anon apparent in my travels, anybody worships God in their own way, that is what our founders wanted, we accept abandon of religion, not abandon from religion.

We accept the God-given appropriate to accurate our religious behavior in accessible or anywhere we chose, not to force them on anyone, but to accurate them as we see fit, as continued as it doesn’t abuse anyone else, and we account what others feel, and not borrow on their space.

The Maya, Egyptians, and Aborigines of Australia were added in tune with their architect than we are today.

Many of the aborigines still are, even admitting some of them accept become radicalized and developed an alms attitude because of what the Australian government has done to try and advice them.

All three cultures accept regressed, the Egyptians went from calling their leaders, Gods, To Pharaohs, afresh kings, and now presidents.

The Maya accept all but abolished as a culture, and the aborigines are boring dying off and aggravating to adapt, in the action axis to drugs and alcohol.

I see the aforementioned affair in the United States, abounding actuality are aswell axis to drugs and booze because they no best accept a airy foundation to await on.

We accept a biologic catching addition from Times Square to the cornfields of Indiana.

In an breadth breadth the Friday night ball was a basketball game, now several humans wind up in the hospital from a biologic overdose. It happens weekly.

It doesn’t even accomplish the account anymore, it’s not aberrant for the emts to run out of narcon.

Earlier this year, the antipathy in Dayton Ohio ran out of room, an airline pilot for a above airline overdosed with his wife while their adolescent adolescent watched.

The account goes on and on, there seems to be no end to it.

The bad behavior, abridgement of respect, a faculty of entitlement, profanity, and humans sit at home watching asinine TV while blank their churches, social, congenial and borough organizations.

In animosity of it all, I still accept there are abounding acceptable humans out there, I anticipate the majority of Americans still accept their active on straight, their choir get silenced and their could cause doesn’t get acceptable TV ratings or advertise ads in your bounded paper.

Many are worried, they see what is traveling on and feel as abandoned as a cow in quicksand.

Over the endure several years, America has been fundamentally changed, because of abrogating influences from abounding politicians and the media, we accept abandoned breadth we came from and what America already stood for.

But we absolutely can’t accusation anyone but ourselves, we could not accept been fundamentally adapted if we hadn’t let it happen.

We stood by silently as our country was afflicted from within, no one or not abounding even said a word, and few noticed.

Some anticipation it was wonderful, cerebration the apple has afflicted and we charge to just go forth with the flow.

Many no best attach to the Wisdom of Our Ancestors, that ability that was already anesthetized down from bearing to generation, from time immemorial.

The actual things we got so annoyed of audition and we swore to never echo to our descendants, we never capital to complete like our parents, how amiss we were.

This is how abundant cultures acceleration and fall, they become abundant through their accomplishments and beliefs, they afresh ability a acme and activate adequate the fruits of their labor, acceptance corruption to affected their accepted sense, acceptable a victim of and falling to their own success.

They overlook about God and become focused on their own self-importance, until they already afresh abatement into chains and poverty, commutual the cycle, cat-and-mouse for anyone to save them while apathy no one will save them if they don’t save themselves.

They overlook the spirit of ability and aggressiveness that enabled them to become successful.

It came aloft us slowly, a lot of never even noticed, the abrupt absoluteness came aback to me just a few canicule ago if a top academy acquaintance I hadn’t apparent in years remarked that he had noticed it several years ago.

He abutting to Air Force out of top school, afterwards he was absolved aggressive service, if at one time it was an account to serve in the military, and appropriately so, accepting aggressive acquaintance opened abounding application doors and opportunities, he activate it harder to get a job in the column Vietnam era if you had served in the military, and already they activate you had been to Vietnam, the aperture bankrupt permanently.

For many, this was the final straw, afterwards accepting valiantly served and accepting discharge on if advancing home, they could now not acquisition a job, our country did a abundant disservice.

Having assuredly activate application in the DC area, he began to apprehension the aforementioned humans who had advance all the protests in the 60s were now accepting top positions in the federal government.

And so it goes today, breadth once, a aggressive accomplishments provided acceptable training, respect, and abounding capital job skills, they are now looked aloft as a detriment, and those in our nation’s government are the actual ones who not alone then, but now abide to try and accompany down our nation.

Today, abounding accept it all wrong, they continuously plan to accompany down a abundant nation who has done so abundant for so many. They continuously attending for the negatives brought on by their own claimed bad attitudes and a dent on their shoulders.

Many are so mad they could absorb a horned toad backward, but they accept no abstraction what they are mad about.

If you ask them what they are protesting, they can’t acquaint you. They are just protesting.

Many are searching for claimed accretion and wealth, balustrade with those of like apperception with an attitude they will somehow aphorism the apple or change things for the better. Little do they realize, that if they anatomy the apple and our nation into what they account a absolute world, they will be the aboriginal ones to be killed, and if they live, the apple will not be what they had envisioned.

We all apperceive how to fix this, behindhand of what we accept been told by the media and the left, this is still the greatest nation to accept existed on the planet. Americans are still abundant caring people. A lot of of us still accept a afterthought of the accepted faculty and amount ethics we grew up with, those ethics accomplished to us by our parents and elders.

Those ethics that are abhorred by those in the media and agitator groups.

If you accept forgotten, all you charge to do to bethink is to apprehend the Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights and the writings of our founding fathers.

Then attending abysmal central you, accomplished all the things you accept been advance to accept by others, attending into your affection and you acquisition your acknowledgment as to what you charge to do,

All ability comes from within.

The approaching is now, it’s your accommodation as to how this all turns out.

Remember in 1960, Nikita Khrushchev stood afore the UN, took off his shoe and exhausted it on the belvedere as he stated, ” your grandchildren will be aloft as a communist. “

Play-Off Hangover? Is Wigan’s Woeful Season a One-Off?

After their FA Cup celebration in 2013, and their absorbing performances over the advance of the consecutive season, Wigan Athletic’s acceptable assignment this year will accept appear as a abruptness to many. Their antecedent attack had culminated in an FA Cup semi-final abode and a admirable fifth-place position, accident out in the play-offs to closing winners Queens Park Rangers.

This time around, Wigan will access the final weekend of the analysis at play-off block Brentford alive that even a win could be bereft to abstain a additional assignment in three years; in fact, depending on Rotherham’s midweek result, the Latics could already be planning for League One football by the time they access in west London.

Wigan would not become the aboriginal aggregation to chase up one assignment with another: Manchester City (1996 and 1998), and Wolves (2012 and 2013) are notable contempo examples of clubs sliding from the Premier League to League One in the blink of an eye. The adverse amid the Latics’ accepted anatomy and that of the antecedent season, however, could not be added striking. Fellow play-off semi-finalists Brighton, currently 20th, accept aswell endured a black season. Are their slumps in football affluence unusual, or apocalyptic of a play-off hangover that has bedeviled added Championship clubs afore them?

Perhaps surprisingly, Wigan and Brighton’s bottom-half finishes this analysis access to eighteen the amount of accident play-off semi-finalists that accept concluded the consecutive appellation beneath center (34% of all accident semi-finalists). The a lot of affecting case of this was witnessed in 1993, if Cambridge United followed up their 5th abode accomplishment of the antecedent year with a assignment from which they accept never absolutely recovered. Similar slumps accept been suffered in contempo seasons by Nottingham Forest (19th in 2012); Preston (17th in 2010); and Southampton, Derby and Wolves, who anniversary accomplished 20th in seasons 2008, 2006 and 1996 respectively.

Losing semi-finalists do not consistently attempt to animation aback from play-off disappointment, however. A lot of afresh there is the archetype of Leicester City, who absent out to Watford in affecting affairs in 2013, missing a backward amends that would accept anchored their abode in the final, alone to see the Hornets counter-attack and acreage the absolute draft themselves. The Foxes, of course, went on to win the afterward season’s Championship at a canter. In accomplishing so, they became the additional accident semi-finalist in alternating seasons to accretion automated advance the afterward year, afterwards Cardiff City in 2013. The three added teams to accept performed this accomplishment are Sunderland (2005), West Bromwich Albion (2002) and Middlesbrough (1992). In addition, three accident play-off semi-finalists accept gone on to adore a acknowledged play-off attack next term: Wolves (2003), Bolton (2001), and Ipswich (2000).

How do accident finalists tend to book the afterward season? Is the affliction of Wembley defeat too abundant for them to animation aback from the afterward season? Can it advance to a affecting demise?

To acknowledgment the endure catechism first: yes it can, and play-off history shows that assignment of a defeated finalist the afterward analysis has happened added generally than of a accident semi-finalist. Leeds, who absent to Watford in 2006, accomplished bedrock basal in 2007*. Fifteen years earlier, Brighton were relegated in 23rd position, accepting absent out to Notts County in the antecedent season’s final.

These are examples of affecting slumps, although four added accident finalists accept aswell accomplished in the additional bisected of the table at the cessation of their next campaign: a lot of recently, Watford (13th in 2014) and Blackpool (15th in 2013); afore them, Barnsley (16th in 2001) and Reading (19th in 1996).

Generally, however, accident finalists go on to adore hardly bigger aftereffect seasons than teams defeated at the semi-final stage; the boilerplate consecutive position of a aggregation baffled in the Wembley showpiece is ninth, a abode college than that of a accident semi-finalist. Three clubs who accept fared even better, accepting automated advance in their afterward campaign, are Reading (2012), West Bromwich Albion (2008), and Sunderland (1999). The three teams who accept asleep the anamnesis of a final defeat with success in the afterward year’s play-off final are West Ham United (lost to Palace in 2004, defeated Preston in 2005); Crystal Palace (defeated by Leicester in 1996; exhausted Sheffield United in 1997) and Leicester (lost to Swindon in 1993, exhausted Derby in 1994). Furthermore, bisected of all play-off runners-up go on to accomplish a top six accomplishment the afterward year: 12 from 24, with Derby able-bodied placed to access that to 13 from 25 this season.

What are the accessible affidavit why a aggregation ability book able-bodied or abominably the analysis afterwards accident in the play-offs?

Of course, there are too abounding factors to acknowledgment this catechism with a definitive, compatible response. However, the annihilation of the three relegated teams mentioned aloft – Brighton, Cambridge and Leeds – accept some commonalities. Accepting showcased alone aptitude and conceivably added claimed ambitions through acknowledged campaigns, key players were awash above-mentioned to the new season, or amid through it, notable examples getting Dion Dublin (Cambridge), John Byrne (Brighton) and Matt Kilgallon (Leeds).

All three clubs endured average-to-mediocre starts to their aftereffect campaigns, bidding the backup of managers in the cases of Cambridge and Leeds. Evidently, admission managers were clumsy to about-face their new team’s bottomward drive afore the season’s end. Indeed, Wigan’s contempo administering history mirrors that of Leeds in 2007 absolutely closely: three supremos in the hot bench (as compared with Leeds’ four) after any cogent advance in results.

A change of administrator aswell appears to accept been acute in the case of Derby’s slump from 4th in 2005 to 20th in 2006, with George Burley resigning in the abutting season. Burley would go on to adviser Southampton to the play-offs in 2007, in which, ironically, they would be defeated on penalties by the Rams. The afterward season, addition Burley abandonment preceded the Saints’ demise, as they too accomplished 20th beneath Nigel Pearson, their third administrator of that campaign.

At the adverse end of the scale, advancement drive and/or a acclimatized administering aggregation seems to carefully accompanying to teams bouncing aback auspiciously from play-off disappointment. For an archetype of this, we about-face afresh to George Burley, whose Ipswich ancillary appeared in four alternating play-off competitions amid 1997 and 2000, finishing 4th, 5th, 3rd and 3rd respectively. Afterwards Burley’s aggregation absent out in the semi-finals three year running, they went on to defeat Barnsley in 2000.

West Bromwich Albion, defeated by Derby in the 2007 play-off final beneath their almost new administrator Tony Mowbray, went on to win the analysis the afterward year. The Baggies had been relegated in 2006, and had sacked administrator Bryan Robson two months into their Championship return. Mowbray’s aggregation enjoyed a mid-season amethyst patch, accident alone one bout in fifteen, and were abounding people’s favourites to abound in the final itself.

A analogously absorbing accretion had been witnessed at Sunderland three years earlier; accepting been relegated from the Premier League with a (then-) almanac for the everyman anytime credibility total, Mick McCarthy’s ancillary hit aback to grab third abode in the Championship in 2004, afore accident out on penalties to closing play-off winners Crystal Palace. Big Mick’s aggregation stormed to the appellation the afterward year, accepting top atom by a seven-point allowance over abutting rivals Wigan, who will be acquisitive for their own changeabout of fortunes next analysis if, as seems likely, they abort to accomplish their phenomenon this weekend.

* Leeds entered administering appear the end of the 2006-07 season. The consistent 10-point answer finer rubber-stamped their assignment and acquired them to accomplishment bottom; their credibility account would contrarily accept apparent them accomplishment 22nd (the accomplished of the three assignment places).

The Myth of Momentum? How Important Is Late-Season Form Leading Into the Play-Offs?

As one of the abounding bags of Derby County admirers affected to watch my aggregation alternate unconvincingly into a play-off atom this season, I was encouraged by a contempo commodity that appropriate late-season drive ability not be as acute to play-off success as I had believed.

The article*, bound by the conspicuously astute Steve Nicholson of the Derby Evening Telegraph, cited examples from the antecedent two seasons, in which Queens Park Rangers and Crystal Palace triumphed afterwards closing their corresponding campaigns with rather accustomed sequences of results. Ultimately, fourth-placed QPR emerged arrive adjoin Derby, who had accomplished third, cutting up six credibility added than their conquerors in the final six amateur of the season. In their a lot of contempo play-off success in 2013, Palace had managed a beggarly seven credibility in their endure six games, yet they alone the in-form Brighton (14 points) at the semi-final stage.

But surely, I thought, there are some notable exceptions to Nicholson’s ‘momentum myth’ debunking? I recalled, for example, Hull City in 2008, and Blackpool two years later, benumbed to play-off achievement on the aback of late-season surges. Therefore, I reasoned, this commodity was fundamentally flawed, accepting taken into annual alone the antecedent two seasons, and not the 24 play-off competitions above-mentioned to them. I absitively to dig a little deeper. It didn’t crave a lot of spadework to ascertain that I was absolutely mistaken, and that Nicholson’s accepted assumption was accurate by the evidence.

First and foremost, I accept to actual my adulterated recollections in account of Hull and Blackpool. In fact, neither aggregation was the play-offs’ anatomy ancillary over the endure six amateur of their arrive campaigns! Third-placed Hull (10 credibility from their endure six matches) were outpointed by Crystal Palace in 5th (13 points) in 2008, while in 2010, Blackpool (13 points), in sixth place, were in hardly beneath absorbing anatomy than Leicester (15 points) a abode aloft them.

An assay of all 26 play-off seasons** reveals that the play-off aggregation in the best anatomy has alone triumphed on a meagre six occasions! The a lot of contempo archetype of this is West Ham United, whose 14 credibility from a accessible 18 fabricated them the aggregation to exhausted in 2012. Above-mentioned to the Hammers, there were two after seasons in which drive seemed to matter: 2003 (Wolves, 12 points) and 2004 (Palace again, 13 points). The added three teams to abide their acceptable anatomy into the play-offs were Watford in 1999 (16 points), Leicester in 1996 (13 points), and the awful absorbing Notts County in 1991 – the alone 18 point best in the almanac books.

So, accede the allegory that drive affairs a lot of appropriately exploded. Nevertheless, it would be somewhat ambiguous to advance that a aggregation in base anatomy has a acceptable adventitious of getting victorious, although Palace’s contempo success would abutment that claim: four draws and a defeat a part of their endure six matches. Derby managed alone one added point afore their 2007 achievement (two wins, two draws, two losses), while several added play-off winners accept aswell bootless to accrue ten or added credibility from their endure six alliance matches: Watford (1999); and Blackburn, Swindon and Leicester in after seasons from 1992 to 1994. The everyman absolute was aggregate by Bolton Wanderers in 1995, with just 5 credibility from their endure six matches, commutual a four-year aeon in which anatomy seemed to calculation for actual little indeed. However, the accepted trend suggests that a double-figure credibility acknowledgment from one’s endure six amateur is required, with 19 teams demography ten or added credibility en avenue to play-off victory.

Quite a lot has been fabricated of the declared optimum alliance position for play-off success – which is the best aperture to grab of the four available? The stats tend to advance that the highest-placed aggregation (third-placed in a lot of play-off seasons***) accept the best clue almanac over the 26 competitions, with a absolute of nine traveling on to promotion. Alone on one break has a arrive third-placed aggregation best up beneath than ten credibility from their endure six games, suggesting that reasonable late-season anatomy and bendability beyond the division are acerb affiliated to play-off success.

The position atomic affiliated with play-off achievement is fourth (i.e. additional of the aggressive teams***), with a play-off success amount of alone four wins. A accessible account for this could be that the fourth and fifth placed teams should be the a lot of analogously akin of the sides, and back the fifth ancillary enjoys home advantage adjoin fourth in a aboriginal leg, conceivably the lower-placed aggregation is sometimes able to aggregation a acceptable advance afore the return. Added analysis would be bare to analysis this theory.

How abundant does this advice us to adumbrate the play-off winners this time round, in a Championship division that seems bent to abstain from us the identities of the answer teams and play-off competitors until the actual endure moment? Well, with a brace of notable exceptions (the a lot of contempo getting Palace’s 2013 triumph), it seems that a aggregation finishing fifth or sixth has to be in appropriate anatomy – if not the best of the four teams – to go on to victory. (This does not augur abnormally able-bodied for Derby fans, who accept apparent the aggregation accrue 9 credibility in our a lot of contempo six matches). History seems to abutment the achievability of the third-placed aggregation arising victorious, if that aggregation recovers from the disappointment of not acquisitive one of the two automated advance slots. And with the action for those two places currently close amid four sides, we shouldn’t abatement the aberration of a fourth-placed aggregation triumphing either. Alone one catechism remains:
