The US spends hundreds of billions of dollars per year on national defense. Yesterday the Capitol Building, with nearly all Senators and Congressmen present, was breached by a mob in a matter of minutes. What policy and personnel changes are needed to strengthen security in nation's capitol?

The United States government spends hundreds of billions of dollars each year on national defense, including $544 billion on the Department of Defense (base budget), $70 billion on the Department of Homeland Security, and $80 billion on various intelligence agencies. According to the CBO, approximately 1/6th of US federal spending goes towards national defense.

Yesterday, a mob breached the United States Capitol Building while nearly every single member of Congress, the Vice President, and the Vice President-elect were present in the building. The mob overran the building within a matter of minutes, causing lawmakers to try to barricade themselves, take shelter, prepare to fight the intruders if needed, and later evacuate the premises.

What policy and personnel changes are needed to strengthen our national security apparatus such that the seat of government in the United States is secure and cannot be easily overrun?

What steps might we expect the next administration to take to improve national security, especially with respect to the Capitol?

Will efforts to improve security in the Capitol be met with bipartisan support (or lack thereof)? Or will this issue break along partisan lines, and if so, what might those be?

Medical personnel refusing vaccinations.

Edit - u/TheRecovery found this complete looking review of vaccines through the years and the rare ones that cause harm. Thanks!

https://www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/concerns/concerns-history.html

This is apparently a real phenomonom. I understand that 25% of the people in our institution have refused. Our governor is not feeling he can require it. I do not understand that, because it IS a patient safety issue, they also require certain things before we can be on staff - like a TB test, and TB is far less communicable than covid.

I have another tack - as this is a patient safety issue, patients and their families have a right to know if the people around them in the hospital have refused vaccination, and to refuse to allow those people to be around them. Of course, the people who have refused would have to wear some sort of identification.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/jan/10/coronavirus-covid-19-vaccine-hesitancy-us-health-workers

I do not understand this nurse feeling she can substitute her own (uninformed... all the way to ignorant) assessment of this for all of worlds combined expertise to refuse. And to call herself a "guinea pig". Really? 70,0000 people in the Pfizer and Moderna trials?

We don't have a personnel issue on the back end. We have a coaching and systems issue.

People have said I should make this a post so I will.

It's not a personnel issue on the back end. It's a fucking systems and structure problem. It's a Baumer problem.

We keep changing our personnel and we keep having the same issues year over year.

Since Baumer has taken over, we have consistently seen our goalies have to face a huge number of shots. (Canucks current season numbers were based on up to last night's game. Does not include the 2nd game vs the Canadians).

Our shots against per game numbers since Baumer was handling our D.

  • 2017-18: 32.2
  • 2018-19: 31.6
  • 2019-20: 33.3
  • 2020-21: 36

League Average:

  • 2017-18: 31.95
  • 2018-19: 31.45
  • 2019-20: 32.81
  • 2020-21: 27.25

For reference, under the current coaching staff with their current systems, we are giving up as many shots against a game as we were when we were being coached by Willie Desjardins and had guys like Sbisa and Bartkowski playing on the back end.

Here's the total shots against for each season with Baumer

  • 2017-18: 2641
  • 2018-19: 2597
  • 2019-20: 2297
  • 2020-21: 180

League Average

  • 2017-18: 2620
  • 2018-19: 2579
  • 2019-20: 2192
  • 2020-21: 109

Canucks Ranking compared to the league:

  • 2017-18: 14th worst
  • 2018-19: 14th worst
  • 2019-20: 6th worst
  • 2020-21: 1st worst

(We were so carried by Marky last year)

Our high shots against numbers is clearly a systems issue and not just about personnel. Our personnel has improved greatly since the Willie era yet we still put up the same shots against.

Another stat I'll throw out there is our team blocked shot numbers.

  • 2017-18: 1152
  • 2018-19: 1233
  • 2019-20: 1088
  • 2020-21: 59

This alone doesn't give you much insight but when you take shots block/(shots blocked+shots against) you get a percentage of shots blocked which is important for comparison year over year.

  • 2017-18: 30.3%
  • 2018-19: 32.2%
  • 2019-20: 32.1%
  • 2020-21: 24.7%

So what does all this random stat gathering really mean?

Well firstly, it tells us our defensive systems have not improved in any noticeable way since Desjardins era to limited opponents shots. The last season the Canucks averaged 30 or less shots against a game was back in 2014-15 which was Desjardins first year when we faced 29.8 a game on average. Since I know some people will ask, under Torts we averaged 28 shots against a game. Our Cup run team faced 30 shots against a night. The only additional data to gather would be to check opponent shooting areas

(WW2 Japan) What Japanese personnel instigated Japan's surrender to the US/Allies?

Was Hirohito a lone wolf and made it largely his own personal choice to surrender, based on the 2 nukes? Did Hirohito even truly have the level of govt. control needed to singlehandedly surrender?

Was his decision to surrender heavily dependent on the tacit/overt agreement of certain other Japanese admins?

Was Hirohito also heavily pressured to surrender by various other Japanese leaders? Were the majority of the Japanese leadership still quite content with continuing the fight anyway?

Is there evidence that Hirohito's prominence in the Japanese surrender was actually falsified whitewashing? (I'm aware the US wanted to shift the WW2 blame off him and put it on other leaders)
