Harry Yee

Harry K. Yee is a former bartender from Honolulu, Hawaii, credited with having helped to spread tiki culture during the mid-twentieth century, both in Hawaii and in the continental United States, he invented the Blue Hawaii cocktail, is attributed with being the first bartender to use paper parasols and Vanda Orchids in tiki drinks. In 2018, Yee celebrated his 100th birthday. Born in 1918, Yee began bartending in 1952, before the advent of jet airliners and seven years before Hawaiian statehood, he soon joined Henry Kaiser's Hawaiian Village Hotel, where he served as head bartender for more than thirty years. Along with Ernest Gantt and Victor Jules Bergeron, Yee did much to popularize a faux version of the tropics consisting of rum drinks, hula girls, tourism. Yee's time at the bar spanned statehood and the rise of Hawaii as a major international travel and retirement destination; when he began, Hawaii hosted 100,000 visitors per year around Waikiki. By the time he retired, his many innovations were an attempt to create a sense of locale for his tourist customers.

When they asked for Hawaiian drinks, he had nothing to offer because there was no such thing, so he invented them and coined names on the spot. Yee is attributed with being the first bartender to use paper parasols and Vanda Orchids in tiki drinks. In an interview on the subject Yee said "We used to use a sugar cane stick, people would chew on the stick put it in the ashtray; when the ashes and cane stuck together it made a real mess, so I put orchids in the drink to make the ashtrays easier to clean. I wasn't thinking about romance."At times during his career he was a teetotaler who relied on his customers for feedback on his drinks. He does not drink rum, instead prefers cognac. After retiring he taught for several years at the Bartending Training Institute in Honolulu. During his more than thirty years of bartending in Waikiki, Yee is attributed with inventing many cocktails, including: The Banana Daiquiri The Blue Hawaii The Chimp in Orbit The Hawaiian Eye — it was featured in the television series that used the hotel he worked in as a backdrop The Hot Buttered Okolehao Tapa Punch — the first drink he put a paper parasol in The Tropical Itch As is common with Tiki drinks, not all drink invention attributions go unchallenged.

Some credit other bartenders with having invented the Banana Daiquiri and the Hawaiian Eye cocktail

Intelligence and the Japanese Civilian

Intelligence and the Japanese Civilian was a 1945 film produced by the US Marine Corps, to instruct Marines on how they should handle the civilian population of Japan during the post-war occupation. The film begins by describing the difficulties the civilian population posed during the Battle of Saipan including the famous mass suicide of Japanese who believed the US would torture them; as the Marianas campaign progressed though, the Marines learned to use the Intelligence Division to handle the Japanese civilians, by the time the Marines reached Okinawa, the ID had become a routine part of the operation. The Marianas and Okinawa, pre-war Japanese possessions, had large Japanese civilian populations at the time of their occupation, whereas other islands, like Tarawa, Guam or Iwo Jima, were either uninhabited by civilians, or only by indigenous civilians; the ID used a variety of techniques to handle the Japanese civilians: they first made loudspeaker announcements in Japanese to coax them into surrendering.

Camps are set up, made self-sufficient as much as possible. Other roles of the civilians are explored the use of captured documents and the need to find out, a collaborator with the militarist regime.

Joan was the daughter of Robert II, Duke of Burgundy, Agnes of France, her older sister, was the first wife of Louis X of France. Joan married Philip of Valois, Louis's cousin, in July 1313. From 1314 to 1328, they were Countess of Maine. King Philip IV's sons: Louis X, Philip V, Charles IV, left no surviving male heirs, leading to the accession of Joan's husband to the French throne; the Hundred Years' War ensued, with Edward III of England, a nephew of Louis X, claiming the French crown. Intelligent and strong-willed, Joan proved a capable regent while her husband fought on military campaigns during the war. However, her nature and power earned both herself and her husband a bad reputation, accentuated by her deformity, she became known as la male royne boiteuse. One chronicler described her as a danger to her enemies in court: "the lame Queen Jeanne de Bourgogne...was like a King and caused the destruction of those who opposed her will."She was considered to be a scholarly woman and a bibliophile: she sent her son, manuscripts to read, commanded the translation of several important contemporary works into vernacular French, including the Miroir historial of Vincent de Beauvais and the Jeu d'échecs moralisés of Jacques de Cessoles, a task carried out by Jean de Vignay.

Joan died of the plague 12 December 1349. She was buried in the Basilica of Saint Denis, her children with Philip VI were: John II. Marie, who married John of Brabant, the son and heir of John III, Duke of Brabant, but died shortly afterwards. Louis. Louis. A son. A son, stillborn. Philip, Duke of Orléans Joan. A son. In 1361, Joan's grandnephew, Philip I of Burgundy, died without legitimate issue, ending the male line of the Dukes of Burgundy; the rightful heir to Burgundy was unclear: King Charles II of Navarre, grandson of Joan's elder sister Margaret, was the heir according to primogeniture, but John II of France claimed to be the heir according to proximity of blood. In the end, John won. Joan is a character in a series of French historical novels by Maurice Druon, she was portrayed by Ghislaine Porret in the 1972 French miniseries adaptation of the series.
