2002 Astro van has recently decided to start blowing the air designated to go to vent down to the floor.?
My Astro van has recently decided to start blowing the air designated to go to vent, down to the floor. It I tell it to direct to defrost, it does. When I start in the morning, it will blow at my feet for about 1 mile then go to vent. If I start it from cold in the heat of the day, it will take 8 or… so miles to assign it to the vents instead of the floor. If I go up a hill or accelerate quickly, it will go to floor and then back to vent when I go downhill or decelerate. Anyone familiar with this? Do you think its the 1/8 inch vacuum line that runs from the front of the block to the back? If this was bad wouldn't it do it all the time and not just at these times? ( Full Answer )

Oklahoma was placed under martial law as the governor tried to stamp out the Klan. Public bodies dominated by the Klan included the state government of Oregon and the city council of Anaheim, California. At the 1924 Democratic National Convention, the delegates voted down a plank condemning the Klan…. It's estimated that more than one in eight Americans was a member of the Klan at its height. Prior to 1924, the above order was given to the Susan L. Davis, author of "Authentic History of the Ku Klux Klan, 1865 - 1877", by Major Robert Donnell, who was Grand Scribe of the "Invisible Empire" in 1869, to be included in her book. He stated that the Ku Klux Klan was not disbanded until 1877, but this order was General Forrest's method of misleading those who were attempting to dissolve it by trying to get the Anti - Ku Klux Act passed by Congress. The Anti - Ku Klux Act was finally passed into law in 1871. ( Full Answer )

The Bank of England changes the design of its banknotes regularly to foil counterfeiters and to prevent foreigners or terrorists from stockpiling banknotes to the detriment of the British economy. Once the decision has been made to change an existing banknote, or to issue a new denomination, a comm…ittee of the concerned parties meets to discuss what they want. Submissions or suggestions are sometimes taken from the public. As do many countries, it has become the trend to put the images of famous or historically significant persons on banknotes.
