Hobos and the Railroads during the American Depression of the Early 20th Century

The romanticized image of the hobo peaked during the depression of the 1930's, when many took to the rails in a desperate search for work. It must be noted that a hobo differs from a tramp or a bum. Most hobos would agree that a hobo works and wanders, the tramp dreams and wanders and the bum drinks and wanders. Hobos were often welcomed in areas of under employment or when their labor was required. For the hobos the train is their primary method of transport as they roam the country in search of work. The 1930's was a decade of mostly tolerance towards the hobo. Among hobos messages were routinely exchanged about where to find work, or hand out or perhaps mark a place that was not good for hobos. The model railroad shown here was built to display hobo codes and many can be seen in these photographs. Inquisitor - Histoire des damnés et des tortures, Encyclopédie de l'hérésie.

L'effet Barnum - une simple curiosité ? - Afis - Association française pour l'information scientifique. Par François Filiatrault - SPS n° 256, mars 2003, mis à jour pour le hors-série Astrologie, juillet 2009 Quelque bien qu’on nous dise de nous, on ne nous apprend rien de nouveau.

L'effet Barnum - une simple curiosité ? - Afis - Association française pour l'information scientifique

La Rochefoucauld Phinéas T. Barnum était loin de se douter que son nom passerait à l’histoire de la psychologie et non seulement à celle des spectacles populaires. On attribue au patron du célèbre cirque américain deux phrases qui expliquaient à ses yeux le succès de son entreprise. Qu’est-ce que l’effet Barnum ? Expérimenté pour la première fois par B. L’expérience de base consiste à consigner d’abord une caractéristique appartenant en propre à chacun des sujets d’un échantillon – la date et l’heure de naissance, le résultat obtenu à un test de personnalité bidon ou la narration d’un rêve –, puis à leur faire croire que l’analyse de leur personnalité, qu’on leur fait lire peu de temps après, a été faite à partir de cet élément, et enfin à leur demander d’évaluer le degré d’exactitude du portrait proposé.

ListeHistorique. My father lived in Kowloon Walled City. Click to see full size So I’m hanging out with my dad today (my parents are here in Melbourne visiting) and somehow I got to talking with him about his life in Hong Kong before he moved to the United States.

My father lived in Kowloon Walled City

Out of curiosity, I ask my dad if he knows what Kowloon Walled City is, and amazingly, he tells me that HE LIVED THERE FOR 14 YEARS WHEN HE LIVED IN HONG KONG! My fascination with this demolished city suddenly felt very personal. I began firing question after question at my dad about what life was like living in the “City of Darkness”. And his personal accounts were just incredible. He says that there was prostitution, rampant gang activity, illegal businesses, and heaps of amateur dentists lining the side of the city that he lived on. To get to school, my dad had to walk from his house and through the center of this incredible makeshift city to get to the other side before taking a bus to attend classes.

My interest in this place in Hong Kong’s history has been reignited. Pork Center : TO PORK OR NOT TO PORK. Semaphore: Built with Processing.
