Dunn-edwards paint

Exterior paint change

2023.05.21 11:20 kenx6 Exterior paint change

We are trying to fix up our ranch style house to sell and just painted the exterior white. I absolutely hate it. How difficult is it to re-paint the exterior a different color yourself? I can’t afford to pay the painters to do it again. Do you have to sand down the fresh paint before applying a different paint? Can this horrible white paint act as a primer?
The house is currently foggy day by Dunn Edwards. Somehow this turned out so bright white it’s hard to look at. I want to change it to Spacebox by Miller Paint (which is a deep blue/ green) with a cream trim. The house has board and batten, brick skirt, chimney and entry accent. TIA
Edit: thank you everyone. I spoke with a realtor and they said leave it, a lot of people like a white house. If anything paint the trim a dark color because the light color shows all the imperfections of the plywood underneath

2023.05.15 16:00 robertlf Concerned About VOCs

Recently, I enlisted a realtor to sell my forty-two-year-old, two-story, 1,900-square-foot townhouse. My realtor recommended (and I agreed with him) that all the interior walls needed to be repainted as well as the kitchen cabinets and the cabinets in the two upstairs bathrooms.

His painting contractor and crew arrived a week ago, removed all the cabinet doors, sanded them on tables and wooden horses in the downstairs den and living room, and then spray-painted them with Zinsser BIN Primer. After the doors dried, they painted them with Dunn-Edwards Suprema Interior Semi-Gloss paint. Then they painted all the interior walls with the same paint using rollers. Prior to all of this work, neither the realtor nor the painting contractor spoke to us about VOCs and our options as to the primer and paint and how the cabinets would be painted.

Early in the week I dropped in to see how things were going and was struck by how strong the smell from the paint was. As I walked around, I noticed none of the workers were wearing any type of mask as they sanded or painted. I began to wonder if the sanding and (spray) painting is potentially harmful to my family's health so I started to read about paint and VOCs. I learned that the Zinsser primer was high VOC (500 g/L) but the Dunn-Edwards paint was what is called low VOC (5 g/L).

Now I'm kind of freaking out about moving back into the house. I'm wondering if they shouldn't have sanded and spray-painted the doors outside our home to limit our exposure to the high VOC primer. Why didn't they opt for a low VOC primer like Dunn-Edwards' Decoprime?

My biggest fear is that the cabinets and paint will continue to emit VOCs even after they say the paint is dry. I'm also worried that there could there be a thin film of VOC residue on all our furniture and clothing that could be harmful to our health. Quite honestly, I'm afraid to move my family back into the house while we wait for it to sell.

Do I have anything to be worried about? Can we be harmed by the VOCs from the primer and paint as the cabinet doors and walls continue to cure? And if there is nothing to be worried about, how long should we wait before moving back in?

Thanks for your thoughts.

Hi all! I was wondering what the opinion on brand quality for Dunn edwards vs Benjamin Moore brand.
The color I want to do is the Benjamin Moore white dove but our paint contractor is saying they can only color match with dunn edwards since they exclusively only use that brand.
How does the color match compare for white dove between Benjamin Moore and dunn Edwards?
Thanks in advance for any insight!

2023.04.13 06:00 Hot-Yak2420 What next with this paint stripping?

What next with this paint stripping?
I suspect I am going to get castigated for ruining a decent oak chair but anyway. This chair was painted black and rather than repainting I decided to try stripping it man to the wood since it's solid oak. I am unable to buy mineral spirits due to local environmental laws and paint strippers are pretty limited. Got something from Dunn Edwards paint store for stripping. It's mostly worked but trying to remove the last bits and get it really clean is proving challenging. Do I just go with hand sanding or is there something I can use to just get the rest off and clean up all the residue? Or did I just ruin my wife's chair?

2023.04.08 16:44 kingtaco_17 How to paint over textured semi-gloss? (4 pics)

Location: Los Angeles. Hi all, I have to repaint an orange-peel textured bathroom wall that has 10-year-old Dunn Edwards semi-gloss acrylic paint on it. It's in good condition. PICS HERE
QUESTION: Can I just brush vacuum the wall, then go straight to primer (Dunn Edwards Ultra Grip primer) and two coats of new semi-gloss acrylic? (Yes, it'll be the exact same color.) Or is scuff sanding mandatory? If so, what grit should I use? Should I use a pole sander or do by hand? Lastly, how do I sand without damaging the existing texture? Thank you in advance!

After all the grey in design we went with colour. I had earlier posted about how many colours are too many and how best to communicate colour schemes to a painter. Well it's all finished and frankly we are thrilled. Dunn Edwards did a wonderful job colour matching farrow and ball stiff key blue sand the painter did a great job with the paint.

2023.03.05 11:18 kucukti Can somebody help me make this (image ptompt generator) work ?

You are going to pretend to be Concept2PromptAI. Concept2PromptAI takes concepts and turns them into "prompt" for text-to-image generating AI called Midjourney that creates images. You will ask the user for a concept then provide a "prompt" for it in a copyable code-box. After providing a prompt, ask if the User wants three different options for prompts for the concept or if they wish to move to a new concept. Use the following information and examples as a guide: General rules; 1. "image prompt" consists of multiple segments in a format of ; /imagine prompt: (shot type), (concept), (made-up art style name), (descriptive summary of the subject), (artist), (summary of the scene's environment), (description of the mood of the scene), (description of the atmosphere), (description of the lighting effect) 2. (concept) can be any form of content 3. It's important to remember that the descriptions in the prompt should be written together, separated only by commas and spaces, and should not contain any line breaks or colons or quotation marks. Brackets and their contents should not be included, and the prompt should always start with "/imagine prompt:". 4. Ensure that the grammar is consistent and avoid using cliches or excess words. Also, avoid repeatedly using the same descriptive adjectives and adverbs, and limit the use of negative descriptions. Use figurative language only when necessary and relevant to the prompt, and include a variety of both common and rarely used words in your descriptions. 5. The "image prompt" must also include the end arguments "--c X --s Y --q 2," where X is a whole number between 1 and 25 and Y is a whole number between 100 and 1000. If the (concept) looks better vertically, add "--ar 2:3" before "--c," and if it looks better horizontally, add "--ar 3:2" before "--c." Please randomize the end argument format and fix "--q 2." Donot use double quotation marks or punctuation marks or brackets, and use a randomized end suffix format. The rule set to create an "image prompt" as "Concept2PromptAI” are as follows: 1. First I will send a (concept) as a short text or long text or emoji to inspire you for the "image prompt". You have to wait for it and never ever start creating "image promt" before I send you the (concept) 2. Then you will start writing the "image prompt" with "/imagine prompt:" 3. Then you will choose a (shot type) most suitable for the (concept) and the overall scene You can use a suitable expression from the list below; Wide-Angle Shot, Wide-Angle - The camera is far away from the subject Ultra-Wide Angle, Ultra Wide-Angle - The camera is very far away from the subject Far-Shot, Far-Angle - The camera is far away from the subject and below or above it Aerial View, Satellite View, Drone Footage - The camera is far away looking down on the subject Medium-Shot, Medium-Shot Angle - The camera is low, looking up at the subject Top-Down Shot, Top-Down Angle - The camera is high, looking down at the subject Ground-Shot, Ground-Shot Angle, Ground Angle - The camera is high, looking down at the subject Low-Angle Shot, Low Angle - The camera is very low, looking way up at the subject High-Angle Shot, High Angle - The camera is fairly high, looking down at the subject Full-Shot, Full-Body Shot, Full-Length Shot - The camera captures the entire subject Dutch-Angle - The whole shot slanted, diagonal horizon, evil villain style Eye-Level Shot - The camera is fairly close and looking levelly at the subject Close-Up - The camera is close to the subject Glamour Shot, Glamour Portrait - The camera is intimately close to the subject Macro-Shot, Macrophotography - The camera is microscopishly close to the subject 4. Then add (concept) you got from me 5. Then add a randomly generated (made-up art style name) .You can use 3 techniques in the guide and examples below. 1. Combine two contrasting words: One way to create a unique made-up art style name is to combine two words that are contrasting in nature. For example, "Steamwave" or "Crystalpunk". Brainstorm a list of contrasting words and experiment with different combinations until you find one that resonates. 2. Add a descriptive adjective or verb to a genre: Adding a descriptive adjective or verb to an existing genre can create a new and unique name. For example, "Whirlpool Surrealism" or "Graffitism". Try adding an action or descriptive word to an existing art movement or genre to create a fresh and unique name. 3. Combine words with the same suffix: Another way to create a made-up art style name is to combine words that have the same suffix. For example, "Glowpop" or "Neonsplash". This can create a cohesive and catchy name that's easy to remember. Using these techniques, you can come up with unique and creative made-up art style names like "Glimmercore", "Pixelwave", "Inkstorm", or "Frostpunk". The possibilities are endless! 6. (descriptive summary of the subject) is a detailed,vivid,visually descriptive summary of the (concept). Ensure that the description is detailed, uses descriptive adjectives and adverbs, a diverse vocabulary, and sensory language. Offer context and background information regarding the subject and consider the image's perspective and point of view. Use metaphors and similes only when necessary to clearly explain abstract or complex ideas. Use concrete nouns and active verbs to make the description more specific and lively. 7. Below is a list of well known artists, choose a random (artist) from the list and add to "image prompt": Ingrid Baars, Ralph Bakshi, John Bauer, Ed Binkley, Olivier Bonhomme, Tim Bradstreet, Tim Burton, John Buscema, Kaethe Butcher, Bob Byerley, John Byrne, Ray Caesar, Randolph Caldecott, Laura Callaghan, Leonora Carrington, Santiago Caruso, Elizabeth Catlett, Travis Charest, Pierre Puvis de Chavannes, Howard Chaykin, Sandra Chevrier, Sandra Chevrier, Harry Clarke, Harry Clarke, Dean Cornwell, Walter Crane, Guido Crepax, Farel Dalrymple, Guy Denning, Tony DiTerlizzi, Anna Dittmann, Gustave Doré, Edmund Dulac, Gil Elvgren, Malika Favre, Lisk Feng, Harrison Fisher, Hal Foster, Jon Foster, Ernst Fuchs, Henry Fuseli, Daniel Gerhartz, Daniel F Gerhartz, Atey Ghailan, Atey Ghailan, Vittorio Giardino, Jean-Pierre Gibrat, Hendrick Goltzius, Laurie Greasley, Elizabeth Shippen Green, Peter Gric, George Grosz, Sam Guay, Asaf Hanuka, Tim Hildebrandt, Dan Hillier, Aaron Horkey, Shenho Hshieh, Bodil Jane, Chantal Joffe, Chantal Joffe, James Allen St. John, Rupi Kaur, Heinrich Kley, Daniel Ridgway Knight, Ayami Kojima, Brad Kunkle, Eric Lacombe, Carl Larsson, Dorothy Lathrop, Alexis Marcou, Chris Mars, Tomokazu Matsuyama, Marco Mazzoni, Seb McKinnon, Robert Mcginnis, Kentaro Miura, Kent Monkman, Rowena Morrill, Lee Moyer, Augustus Edwin Mulready, Mario Sanchez Nevado, Victo Ngai, Dustin Nguyen, Kay Nielsen, Glen Orbik, Ida Rentoul Outhwaite, John Jude Palencar, Keith Parkinson, John Picacio, Anton Pieck, Mike Ploog, Paul Pope, José Guadalupe Posada, Henry Raleigh, Jakub Rebelka, Lotte Reiniger, Frederic Remington, Wayne Reynolds, Gordon Rowe, Rafael Sarmento, Mead Schaeffer, Egon Schiele, François Schuiten, Vicente Segrelles, Cynthia Sheppard, Bill Sienkiewicz, Wojciech Siudmak, Jessie Willcox Smith, Barry Windsor Smith, Matthew Stawicki, Drew Struzan, Arthur Suydam, Rufino Tamayo, Shaun Tan, Jacques Tardi, J.

(summary of the scene's environment) is a descriptive summary of the scene's environment. Keep in mind the desired tone and mood of the image and use language that evokes the corresponding emotions and atmosphere. Describe the setting using vivid, sensory terms and specific details to bring the scene to life. 9. (description of the mood of the scene) is a detailed description of the mood of the scene, using language that conveys the desired emotions and atmosphere. 10. (description of the atmosphere) is a visually detailed description of the atmosphere, using descriptive adjectives and adverbs to create the desired atmosphere while considering the overall tone and mood of the image. 11. (description of the lighting effect) is a detailed visual description of the lighting effect, including types of lights, displays, techniques, global illumination, and shadows. Describe the quality, direction, color, and intensity of the light and how it impacts the mood and atmosphere of the scene. Use specific adjectives and adverbs to portray the desired lighting effect and consider how it will interact with the subject and environment. 
I cant make it ad an artist from the list I provide or just telling. It gives an output completely ignoring adding an artist or adding "unknown, by unknown" Actually I have a full list of artists by type like this I want chatGPT to choose from it but I had no success. At some point I manage but this time it stopped creating a madeup art style name. I couldnt manage to make both work. Maybe it has a logic like no artist have this madeup style ?

2023.01.30 16:52 Hot-Yak2420 Dunn Edwards colour matching to farrow and ball

I know there are dozens of posts about colour matching and also farrow and ball. But I couldn't find much on Dunn Edwards. In SoCal our paint contractor prefers Dunn Edwards. How are they say colour matching to farrow and ball? Our local stores seem incredibly unenthusiastic about selling their "exquisite" range(worst name ever). I am trying to match stiffkey blue. The depth of colour and ability to read differently in different light is very important. My personal experience of farrow and ball is that it's very dynamic and rich in that way. Many suggest that Dunn Edwards aura is the best for matching the depth and complexity of f&b. will Dunn Edwards Everest be comparable? Is the colour colour matching service going to give a more accurate result?

100 Days of Tribulations
Upon his election as the President of the United States, Dewey had announced his intention to hold over much of the cabinet of President Bliss as a part of his attempt to hold together a National Front that had become splintered by the breakaway presidential campaign of Kansas Representative Charles Curtis. In a good sign during the months of the transition, cabinet proceedings would remain quite cordial even with the frequent absences of President Bliss and his unifying ethos. Unfortunately, after his inauguration President Dewey would find himself abandoned by men he had thought loyal to him when Secretary of the Navy Albert E. Carter and Secretary of the Interior Archie Alexander left letters of resignation upon the desk of the Oval Office on his first day in office. His relationship with Attorney General Francis Biddle would also become fraught with turmoil over the following months, as the pair began to battle over the future direction of the Justice Department at the conclusion of prosecutions that achieved the final dissolution of the National Patriot League and targeted the conspirators who had architected Ulysses S. Grant III’s run for the presidency. In particular, Biddle had argued that threat of the Grantist far-right had been all but eradicated and that renewed focus was needed upon the prosecution of far-left revolutionaries, which Dewey denounced as an attempt by Biddle to infringe upon the rights of labor and countered that the millions of votes for Ulysses S. Grant III in 1928 proved the need for continued vigilance against Grantism. The argument between the men would escalate to the point of Biddle’s resignation as well, by which time dozens of other more minor appointees had begun to leave an administration which they increasingly saw as Social Democratic in nature.
Unfortunately, replacing these men would prove no easy task. Dewey settled on maritime unionist Joseph P. Ryan to head the Department of the Navy, labor rights attorney George Vanderveer to become the new Attorney General, and Christian socialist politician and YMCA volunteer Sherwood Eddy to lead the Department of the Interior. However, the distinctly left-wing nature of these appointees would lead Dewey into a clash with Federalist Reformist Senate Leader John M. Parker, who vowed to obstruct a leftist domination of the executive branch. Using his powers to draw out hearings in a strategy to delay their confirmation and encourage additional media scrutiny on the candidates, Parker nearly managed to derail Dewey’s nominations. Even the less controversial choices of close political confidante Albert C. Barnes to replace Postmaster General William English Walling and Dalton School Headmistress Helen Parkhurst to succeed Dewey himself as Secretary of Education would come under fire by Parker as part of his plot. However, Vice President William M. McDonald would intervene against Parker’s obstructionism and use his personal connections within the Senate to ensure that his party did not join in Parker’s tactics, ultimately allowing each of the nominees to be narrowly confirmed while extracting a promise from President Dewey to ensure that the Justice Department would oversee the final dissolution of the Third Ku Klux Klan. The narrowest margin would be that of George Vanderveer, confirmed as Attorney General by only a single vote after attacks suggesting that he would give legal protection to violent revolutionaries.

A Spirit of Unity…
Having suffered a political baptism by fire with the confirmation battles of his administration, Dewey understood that many of his most ambitious proposals held little chance of success in the face of such a divided Congress. Indeed, his loyal allies in Congress reintroduced the Dewey Education Bill for a vote in the House despite its Federalist Reformist dominance, only for the bill to fail on the House floor. Instead, Dewey pivoted to a decade-long political objective of the Unity and Progress Caucus and many labor leaders: regular government-mediated negotiations between representatives of major employer’s associations and major labor unions. Since the passage of the Dunn Amendments, legally protected labor strikes had led to an explosion of labor disputes, best exemplified by the General Strike of 1919, that the government was no longer able to contain due to the Supreme Court ruling the mandatory arbitration law unconstitutional. Although the issue had become less pressing with a growing economy leading to rising wage rates, the memories of the General Strike still placed it front of mind for many Americans.
Maneuvering with as-yet unseen political finesse, Dewey began with negotiations to achieve consensus on the formation of the Department of Commerce. While such a Department had been proposed for decades, Social Democratic antipathy to a cabinet-level department dedicated to capital and sharply divided opinions on its structure and powers among the other two parties had hamstrung previous efforts to create the Department. First marshaling support from moderate elements of his party by framing it as the first step towards national labor negotiations, Dewey would next move to build bridges between himself and the Federalist Reformists by appointing legal scholar Felix Frankfurter to a prominent circuit court judge position. Long affiliated with the Federalist Reformists and supporting judicial philosophies favored by the party, Frankfurter’s nomination was appreciated as an olive branch to Dewey’s opponents. Next dealing with his erstwhile allies in the conservative ranks of Solidarity, Dewey promised that the inaugural Secretary of Commerce would be International Monetary Fund Commissioner Herbert Hoover, a high-profile conservative who was also well known as a committed supporter of “associationalist” cooperation between labor and industry. Finally, with the support of deputies within the Social Democratic Party and Vice President William M. McDonald, the Department of Commerce would be established with near-unanimous consent.

The healthy political cooperation fostered by the creation of the Department of Commerce would also pave the way for a number of other political achievements. First, with the death of Associate Justice Gilbert E. Roe, President Dewey would select Arthur Garfield Hays as his first Supreme Court appointee. Unlike the harrowing hearings earlier in the year, Hays would be handily confirmed without such intense political gamesmanship. Dewey was also successfully able to secure revisions to tariff rates to slightly lower them to an average of 36% from their previous 40% highs. Additionally, with constant innovations on new technical frontiers such as aeronautics, radio, and television, new regulatory frameworks were constructed for such technologies, as well as infrastructure investments in the nation’s ports, canals, and newfound aerodromes to accommodate the newest of technological advancements. Perhaps most significantly, in a victory for President Dewey’s vision of expansive reform to the nation’s educational system, Congress would pass a bill overhauling vocational education in America which had in many ways stagnated under previous federal code. The Vocational Education Act of 1929 would adjust archaic funding protocols and governance structures to strip away barriers between traditional academia and vocational programs, in an attempt to ameliorate the segregation of vocational students from academic ones, allow for the integration of vocational principles into traditional education, and ensure that vocational education would be supported by federal funds of the 1883 Blair Education Act.

…Dashed Upon the Rocks of Depression
Not unlike the United States, the German Empire had seen near-constant economic growth throughout the 1920s, a decade which had become known in Germany as the “Golden Years”. With the Berlin Stock Market as the beating heart of much of the European financial system and an economy supported by the preferential trading and currency policies of the Mitteleuropa system, the wealth enjoyed by the Kaiser’s subjects was unparalleled as a burgeoning middle-class began heavily investing on credit into the stock market. The growth also became a source of power for the conservative establishment of Junkers and industrialists in the country, even to the point of their suspected involvement in the abdication of Kaiser Wilhelm II to ensure the increasingly mentally unstable ruler could not threaten the country’s economic growth. However, the German economy would find an unassuming foe that it could not surmount in August of 1929: Ukrainian grain futures. After a record-breaking harvest caused agricultural prices to crash to unseen lows amid serious overproduction, the commodities market would crash and begin a generalized stock market panic. The Berlin Stock Market then witnessed a double-digit decline as the speculative bubble burst with investors rushing to withdraw their money from the market. Already in financial trouble due to its stock investments, a run on Danatbank would cause one of Germany’s largest banks to publicly fail and bring down much of the banking sector with it.

In the world order founded by the Hague Treaty where the fates of the United States and Germany had been bound together with economic ties, it took little time for the crisis to spread across the Atlantic. With German financiers facing disastrous losses at home, they began liquidating their American investments en masse and repatriating gold to Germany, which would prove the spark for America’s own financial crisis. As the Federal Reserve hiked interest rates in a desperate attempt to avert the depletion of the nation’s gold reserves and the German Kaiser threatened to withdraw from the International Monetary Fund, the American market would open with its own double-digit losses in an episode now known as “Black Monday”. Initially hoping that the losses merely represented a correction for an overly hot economy, Secretary of the Treasury John R. Commons would force the New York Stock Exchange to temporarily close after days of sustained losses to avert further damage to the economy.
Unfortunately, the tripartisanship forged by President Dewey would become a casualty of this economic calamity. Faced with an economic crisis even greater than that of the Panic of 1914, gridlock would dominate the Congress’s initial response to what became known as the “Great Depression”. Although once a believer in moderate Social Democratic principles and the gradual reform of the economy, President Dewey along with much of the American left believed that the second catastrophic failure of the market in just 15 years was a portent of the ultimate collapse of the current capitalist system and that immediate action was necessary to preserve the livelihoods and rights of the American people. Leaving behind his formerly moderate policy positions, President Dewey would make a dramatic leftward shift in favor of an expansive relief program even more ambitious than that proposed by President Work during the Panic of 1914. Assuming the bully pulpit with a vigor unmatched by any post-dictatorship president, Dewey demanded the mass socialization of the American economy up to and including his party’s former clarion call of nationalizing the banks as well as an expansive relief program spending large sums of money on public works for the unemployed and social programs. In particular, President Dewey would point to the comparative success of Washington State during the Great Depression as a model for the country to follow. In the aftermath of the General Strike of 1919, the state had been captured by radical Social Democratic supermajorities while urban areas fell under the effective control of local labor unions, beginning a decade-long syndicalist transformation of the state led by Governor “Dutch” Katterfeld, Seattle Mayor Hulet M. Wells, and local unionist William Z. Foster. Organizing local businesses into worker’s cooperatives affiliated with a state union syndicate and managing to survive a turbulent period of capital flight with the sponsorship of wealthy socialist ideologues, Washington’s economy would prove remarkably durable during the Depression.

However, while President Dewey enjoyed the near-universal support of his own Social Democratic Party in his program, his opponents in Solidarity and the Federalist Reform Party were horrified by its very prospect. The turn in the President’s policy would prompt the resignation of his former Solidarist allies Secretary of State John Barrett, Secretary of War William Monroe Trotter, and perhaps most tellingly, the crown jewel of Dewey’s tripartisanship: Secretary of Commerce Herbert Hoover. Meanwhile, Dewey’s opponents in Congress also sought to rival his plan with their own proposals to ameliorate the economic disaster. Under the heavy influence of the theories of President Peabody’s former economic advisor Irving Fisher, Solidarity would coalesce around a proposal to suspend the gold standard in order to allow the Federal Reserve to lower interest rates and inflate the currency in order to stimulate the economy without increasing the size of the federal government. On the other side of the aisle, former presidential candidate Charles Edward Merriam would lead the Federalist Reform Party to unite around the “Chicago Plan” of his former academic colleagues: a proposal to require that banks hold the entirety of their demand deposits in reserve in an effort to eliminate bank runs and the private expansion of the money supply. Neither party would be receptive to Dewey’s effort to nominate former President John M. Work as Chief Justice, blocking the nomination for several months before Dewey finally agreed to withdraw his nomination (much to Work’s disappointment) and instead promote Associate Justice William R. King to Chief Justice and nominate the more moderate Swinburne Hale for the Associate Justice position.
With the three parties advocating for their own disparate solutions to the crisis, there was little room for compromise as each jockeyed to secure the popular mandate for their own proposals. Thus, throughout 1929 and 1930, the financial and economic crisis continued to worsen, with Congress only passing small measures to encourage the export of agricultural produce, invest in new public works programs, moderately regulate securities trading, and increase the land value tax. A brief glimmer of unity would arise from the tragic sinking of the RMS Oceanic, the largest peacetime naval disaster in recent memory, as a tripartisan Senate inquiry would unveil serious flaws in the safety procedures of the ship and recommend numerous changes to maritime law and radiotelegraphy that were speedily adopted by Congress. Secretary of the Interior Sherwood Eddy and the new Secretary of Commerce Edward Filene would also initiate attempts to collaborate with private organizations and citizens to foster the development of more agricultural cooperatives and credit unions. Unfortunately, these measures would do little to contain the soaring unemployment and collapsing prices across the economy, and increasing public pressure would only be met with interminable gridlock in Congress with regards to any major action towards the crisis. However, the parties would temporarily set aside their differences after the news of the passing of former President Tasker H. Bliss shortly after the midterms of 1930. As not only a lauded president but also the hero of the revolution against General Grant and his regime, Bliss would be laid to rest in a funeral attended by much of the nation’s political elite, witnessed by thousands more Americans from all walks of life, and broadcasted over radio to millions more. However, alongside such a display of political unity would come the final and formal dissolution of the mostly perfunctory National Front organization, finally disentangling the fates of Solidarity and the Social Democratic Party.

The White Scare
As America eagerly awaited the results of the deliberations of the new Congress in the hopes of more material action against the Depression, dark tidings would come from the shores of the state of Massachusetts. In a bizarre episode, Ulysses S. Grant III, a fugitive political terrorist and son of the former dictator of the United States, led a coastal invasion of Cape Cod with a force of hundreds of pro-dictatorship emigres. Taking his troops close to the city of Boston itself thanks to the disarray of local defenders, Grant would ultimately be stymied by local paramilitaries and repelled by the state National Guard before dying in battle along with many of his men after the federal military arrived in force to send them back to the sea. Alongside bringing national attention to Massachusetts Governor William Morton Wheeler, the incident would also raise a number of questions particularly surrounding how Grant had come by the resources necessary to attempt such an attack. Congressional investigations into the matter would drag on for much of Dewey’s first term without clear conclusions as evidence pointed in the directions of possible domestic conspiracy as well as foreign support by either France, Germany, Great Britain, or Italy. Meanwhile, one particularly incendiary claim would circulate in the Federalist Reform media suggesting that it was Wheeler himself who had sponsored the invasion to build his political profile for a 1932 presidential run. Perhaps most significantly though, the Cape Cod invasion inspired a new wave of paranoia surrounding Grantism, with many Americans fearful of the millions of Grant voters still among them and possibility of the return of the dictatorship.
Leading the ascendent Impossibilist wing within the Social Democratic Party, Representative and former Vice President Frank J. Hayes would lead the charge to bring the fight against Grantism onto the House floor. Hayes successfully badgered Speaker of the House Donald Richberg into creating a House Committee on Un-American Activities to investigate anti-democratic currents in American society. However, Richberg refused to allow Hayes to lead the Committee, knowing that the former Vice President could easily wield it as a dangerous political weapon. Instead, hoping to exert his own influence over the Committee and steer it in the direction of anti-communism, Richberg would select two young representatives to chair it: Federalist Reform Representative John W. McCormack of Massachusetts and Social Democratic Representative Samuel Dickstein of New York. As a liberal New Nationalist from a state embroiled in a bitter battle between an elitist Old Guard and an insurgent Formicist faction, McCormack would in theory depend on Richberg’s patronage for political survival. Meanwhile, Dickstein’s reputation as a machine politician of the Tammany Hall breed would ideally sabotage Social Democratic efforts to seize control of the Committee.

Initially receiving little notice while investigating routine matters of possibly Grantist military officers or bureaucrats, the pair would soon establish their independence with a particularly incendiary hearing on a matter that would animate the American public consciousness: a second Business Plot. Passed over for the position of Commandant of the Marine Corps by administrations skeptical of his former ties to the dictatorship, Marine Colonel Smedley D. Butler resigned from his military career to begin a career lecturing across the country. Initially cultivating a following among veterans by advocating for increased military pensions, Butler would come across a much larger following when he began to speak on matters of Grantism and the dictatorship. Admitting that he had been ordered to destroy ballots in New York City during the 1908 election and suggesting that Eugene V. Debs had been the legitimate winner of the election, Butler argued that the dictatorship was not solely a conspiracy of the military, but a sinister partnership with powerful industrialists that employed him as a “gangster of capitalism”. Despite receiving much attention for this speaking circuit, Butler would only achieve truly national attention when he testified in front of the House Un-American Activities Committee. To the shock of the nation, Butler would claim under oath that he had been approached to lead a coup against President Dewey to reinstate dictatorship in America. The details of the plot would greatly resemble that of the attempted plot against President John M. Work, with Butler leading a group of veterans into the national capital on the pretenses of protesting cuts to pension rates only to seize control of the government in conjunction with sympathetic forces in the military. Among the conspirators named by Butler were several of the leaders of the American Legion, former General James G. Harbord, pro-Mussolini banker Thomas W. Lamont, and executives of the DuPont chemical and arms company.

While the investigations into the alleged Business Plot remained ongoing by the end of Dewey’s term, the publicity surrounding the hearings as well as the specter of the Cape Cod Invasion would do much to animate public support in favor of the president’s agenda (even despite allegations that both incidents had been fabricated for political gain). In particular, with the galvanized support of the Social Democratic Party, progressive allies taking control of Solidarity after the midterms, and a number of dissidents breaking away from the Federalist Reform line in the sand, President Dewey would finally muster enough support for the passage of the Dewey Education Act. Although implementation of the Act would no doubt take years, its passage represented a major step towards the conversion of the American education system towards one modeled after participatory and experiential learning. Triumphantly signing the bill into law after its passage by Congress, President Dewey later explained in a speech over radio that this was only the first step of his envisioned transformation of society and that the people themselves would need to supply the rest: “Democracy is a way of life controlled by a working faith in the possibilities of human nature. This faith may be enacted in statutes, but it is only on paper unless it is put in force in the attitudes which human beings display to one another in all the incidents and relations of daily life.”

A Fourth Way?
Although public pressure for decisive action to be taken was immense following the midterms of 1930, the elections would provide little in the way of decisive majorities. Successfully painted as obstructionists by the Social Democratic media, the Federalist Reform Party would suffer a bitter defeat at the polls. Despite this, the Social Democrats could scarcely claim a mandate of their own as they held less than 40% of the vote, and by all accounts it appeared that the deadlock of the prior two years would continue. However, a compromise solution to reshape the American financial system would come from perhaps the least expected of places: the Secretary of Agriculture Henry A. Wallace. Seeing a thread through which the proposals of each of the three major parties might be woven together, Wallace crafted a compromise from the foundations of the Chicago Plan to institute full reserve banking. In order to ensure that the creation of money would be entirely within the hands of the government rather than private financiers, Wallace suggested that the conversion of the Federal Reserve into a public corporation be appended to the Chicago Plan in what would be a major victory for Social Democratic policy. Finally, the compromise would be completed with the suspension of the gold standard, which would free the Federal Reserve from its golden shackles and allow the government full control over monetary policy. Dewey would respond eagerly to Wallace’s proposal, suggesting it to be the synthesis of the democratic process and urging that it be brought immediately to Congress.
Painting his proposal as the “nationalization of money” to earn the support of skeptical Social Democrats, Wallace would find a surprising ally in the form of economist Irving Fisher. Fisher, a longtime intellectual leader within Solidarity, openly endorsed much of Wallace’s proposal when it became public and proved a key factor in giving Wallace the support of Solidarity, which held the position of kingmakers in Congress. With the Federalist Reform Party by and large unwilling to make the jump to suspend the gold standard out of fear for the uncertainty it might introduce within the country’s financial system, after months of debate Congress would nonetheless pass the Banking Act of 1932 in implementation of Wallace’s proposal to adopt full-reserve banking, a wholly public Federal Reserve, and a suspension of the gold standard (though by the demand of Solidarist leaders, the authority to liquidate or purchase banks would be withheld from the final act). Temporarily instating a federal guarantee on all bank deposits as an interim solution, the implementation of the Banking Act would be an extended affair, with only the conversion of the Federal Reserve into a public corporation completed by the end of President Dewey’s term. However, with deposits federally guaranteed and the newly founded Currency Commission actively converting public debts owned by banks into cash to implement 100% cash reserves, bank runs came to complete halt, staunching the bleeding of continued financial crisis.

Foreign Affairs
Much like his predecessor, President Dewey took a special interest in the fate of the nascent Chinese Republic under the leadership of Chiang Kai-Shek. While still a professor, Dewey had traveled to China on a sabbatical and built a network of admirers that would prove invaluable to his conduct of foreign affairs. In particular, his former Columbia University pupil Hu Shih would be his central point of contact for a concerted effort to sway Chiang Kai-Shek away from his formerly Integralist leanings and towards a more liberal outlook. But beyond just philosophical overtures, Dewey also moved with concrete geopolitical and economic action. At the urging of Secretary of State John Barrett, Dewey moved to make it official United States policy to guarantee fair trade without special privileges or concessions in Chinese territory, moving to curtail the wide spheres of influence held by the great powers in China. Furthermore, Dewey would direct the negotiation of a trade agreement with Chiang Kai-shek’s government, clarifying export-import protocols and financial flows while also standardizing tariff policies to stimulate American exports while encouraging the development of China. Whether directed by Chiang Kai-shek, motivated by the policies of Presidents Bliss and Dewey, or inspired by the success of the colonial rebellion in India ten years before, Chinese nationalism also witnessed a massive upsurge, resulting in major anti-imperialist agitation in Chinese lands held by colonial powers.

Beyond just China, President Dewey also held ambitious plans for a restructuring of the entire international system. Besides an official commitment to a renouncement of war as a tool of foreign policy, Dewey hoped to undermine through international policy what he saw as the root cause of conflict between nations: economic inequality. Believing that the International Monetary Fund was insufficient and merely maintained an exploitative status quo, Dewey proposed an international program of economic cooperation to lift the poorer nations of the world from poverty into prosperity through centralized planning and regulation of shipping as well as the enforcement of high wages through an international body to be named the International Labor and Development Commission. With such a policy being well to the left of his own thought and already having been dealt a blow by the defeat of his proposed League of American Nations in the Senate, Secretary of State John Barrett resigned after a distinguished tenure to make way for a successor who could more successfully drive forward the President’s policies. Replacing him would be Social Democratic diplomat James J. Oneal, a well-regarded internationalist who conformed more closely to the policies of the President. However, even despite this change in leadership, Dewey would make little headway on either his visionary program or more mainstream proposals of international disarmament due to the open hostility of the German Empire and the Integralist powers of the world to such notions. In particular, the Japanese Empire would demonstrate their flagrant disregard of the International Court of Justice by announcing their unilateral annexation of the Spanish Philippines which they had occupied since the end of the Great War, resulting in international condemnation from many powers and prompting the Dewey administration to react with economic sanctions against the Japanese.

Secretary of State James J. Oneal, who found himself frequently challenged and harassed by inimical powers abroad.
With the fate of the Congo long debated by anyone but the Congolese, President Dewey would urge Congress to finally pass legislation allowing for a referendum to decide the future status of the territory. With the position in favor of selling the Congo to another power finally hamstrung by the Great Depression eliminating the possibility of any buyers, a referendum would finally find enough support to be scheduled by Congress. However, the exact timing of the referendum would prove challenging to come to a consensus on, with many supporters of Congolese statehood hoping that postponing the referendum further might favor a pro-statehood vote by the territory. Ultimately, the Congolese Organic Act of 1930 would schedule the referendum for 1937, conceding to the supporters of statehood a full ten years of concentrated American-sponsored development in return for an independence-minded reorganization of the Congolese territorial government to provide a greater degree of local autonomy.
Aside from just official American policy, the worldwide phenomenon of the Great Depression would bring great change to the international political landscape. Most notable would be Germany, where Kaiser Wilhelm III dismissed his Chancellor and suspended the Reichstag to seize absolute power in the midst of the disaster. With mounting leftist agitation amid the economic disaster and end of German democracy, Wilhelm embarked on an openly repressive policy in opposition to what he claimed was a “socialist rabble and guild of anarchists” while trying to stabilize his country’s economic freefall. Denouncing the International Monetary Fund as an instrument of “Jewish high finance”, Wilhelm also withdrew the German Empire and Mitteleuropa from the international financial system established in the Hague Treaty, a move that would effectively dismantle it entirely. Wilhelm’s renewed advocacy for the Großdeutschland idea would present yet another complication for the Triple Monarchy of Austria-Hungary-Croatia, where the sudden death of the popular Kaiser Charles I amid such difficult straits for the country has led many to question whether the Ausgleich negotiations of 1937 might lead to its complete demise. Meanwhile, Integralist powers such as France and Italy have adopted corporatist planning and widespread nationalization in an effort to ameliorate the economic ruin wrought upon their countries, with the French Action Francaise notably inviting the Orleanist pretender to assume the throne as King Jean III in the hopes of providing the country a figurehead to rally around. The Great Depression would also prove fortuitous for the independence movements in Cuba and Puerto Rico, as the mismanagement of the economic calamity by the Spanish government would spur a wide margin of victory in the scheduled independence votes for the two islands in 1930.

2022.10.25 02:17 liammcevoy Planning on painting the room my parrot lives in. When is it safe for her to return?

Hello! I have a 10 year old cockatiel who lives in my room with me. I am redoing my bedroom and planning on painting all of the walls using an "Ultra-low VOC" paint from dunn edwards. I will be moving her to a different room before I begin painting, but when would it be safe for her to return after the paint dries? The paint i'm planning on using says its "ideal to use in hospitals, schools, hotels, or any other application where low odor products are preferred". Its the Acrylic based "Spartawall" blend, which I don't believe contains as much latex as their other formulas.

Sammie gets his kicks out insulting and embarrassing people. He will train you if you strip naked and run around the park and the main street of Tarant (to the jeers of the public and your companions).
You will gain the reputation of the pervert of Tarant for doing this and your reputation will drop (people will remember this, seemingly everywhere).
If you run a second lap naked, he will give you a Hand Cannon as a reward for being a good sport.
Editor’s Note – If you are a really ugly character (in my case a half-orc with a beauty of 1), your reputation will drop so much that people will attack you on sight.

Location : 40 Polton Cross, Tarant Person : Frederick T. Fitzgerald Comments : The master of Spot Trap, Frederick T. Fitzgerald, can be found in Tarent at 40 Polton Cross. Talk to the brown suited gnome.
He will ask you to retrieve the staff of K’an T’au in the castle of S’nel N’fa. This castle is absolutely riddled with traps. Depending on your style you may want to leave followers outside or alternately use them for “mine detectors”.
The staff is protected by K’an Tau. Once you have killed him, the staff can be found in a chest at the back of the room. A trap door also allows quick exit from the castle.
Returning to Tarant, Frederick will confer Master status when you give him the staff.

2022.10.15 18:23 Not_l0st How many colors is too many for cabinets

I have a 2,600 sqft home built in 1997. It has tons of custom storage, all built out of red oak. It's very well made, so we want to paint it vs replace it all.
Including the normal things: kitchen & laundry room cabinets & bathroom vanities there are also: built in china cabinets in the dining room, built in storage near the fireplace in the family room, a mudroom in the hall that connects from the garage to the kitchen, office storage, and a linen closet in the upstairs hall.
I will be painting the walls SW Alabaster White and the trim and doors Agreeable Beige. I already painted the dining room china cabinets 'Legendary Gray' by Dunn Edwards last year. I want to paint the kitchen and fireplace wall a completenting greige, maybe accessible beige or maybe something lighter. I also want to do the mudroom and the powder room that connects to it in SW Evergreen Fog (Also considering SW Sea Salt which is much lighter). The upstairs linen closet will be Agreeable Beige to match the doors. I haven't decided yet where to go with the laundry room, other bathrooms, or office, they'll stay red oak until we decide.
I've love some tips on how to ensure I don't over do it with the cabinet colors. I don't mind if they aren't all the same color, but I don't want it to look like we only thought about each room, and not the final look.
Thank you

Here is a link to my pinterest color stories page that shows the general look I'm going for: https://www.pinterest.com/SageOaksFarm/color-stories/
