Ah Poul La Cour, that encounter in Part 9 is finally paying off.
How effective would that be, regarding the impeler?“A wind turbine connected to an impeller inside a water tank.”
Oh nice invention there! Mr Le Cour should see these in Scotland and other windy places- the blades would never stop!
I think you mean "looked over". "Overlooked" means the opposite of that.A benevolent woman who overlooked the wellbeing of her employees, she quickly realized that these water heaters could improve the quality of the housing she provided for the miners
"Looked over" is more commonly in the sense of reviewing papers, etc. For 'ensure, supervise, pay attention to' you could use idioms "she oversaw ...", "she saw to ...", "she looked out for..."I think you mean "looked over". "Overlooked" means the opposite of that.
Just like any other language, idiosyncrasies abound.English is such a wonderfully weird (or irritating) language. "Overlook" and "oversee" are nearly opposites.
Is it around this time, IOTL at least, where the Congress and the President is not in good terms? One of member of Congress relatives perhaps? Or just the butterfly had flap enough that even effects the fashion of the people of Chile, at least the ones with air-conditioning.Hmm, mourning dress and a smile on her face? Kinda incogruous...

An update? AN UPDATE!!!
That ambassador, really just goes to show how little professionalism exists on what one assumes to be an august position. Seriously, how do you just ignore an temperature regulating machine just because of ego and racism?
Great chapter and timeline in general. I am glad that the timeline is able to be resumed

P/s: Is chapter 4 and 5 not threaded?
Edit: Nevermind, I forgot that that particular woman probably likes to wear black, as shown in of the the previous chapters.
Kinda sad the the events that lead to Chille having a better future also lead to America being a even bigger bully to their southern vassals. Because let's be honest, that's how the ambassador is acting right now.In OTL they were. Here, the aftermath of the Tarapaca Saltpeter Company massacre resulted in massive backlash against the Conservatives that would go on to form the core of the Revolutionary forces in the 1891 Chilean forces, along with the Navy. The Navy is currently gutted. Balmaceda doesn't have the nitrate resources to spend on his modernization program, so he shifted towards economic stabilization and alternatives to nitrate wealth.
In short: The conditions for the Chilean civil war have been butterflied
They don't want the British there either though.So President Balmaceda just needs to get some Chilean Navy ships (broken or not) backed by some British armour to issue a 'bugger off' command and the Americans will leave?

The Chileans might be able to play them off each other to give themselves room to breathe, but it's a dangerous game.
"Be it that way, but the ships are still coming. President Harrison understands that Chile has sovereignty over their ports, and so has instructed the ships to obey any commands issued by the ships of the Chilean Navy. - Egan said, smirking. - If no issues are presented, then it will be understood that Chile has no issues to grant access to its ports."

Egan is risking a war with the British Empire here in his arrogance - one hopes he gets slapped down hard for this.
What is this "Agricultural Revolution"? Are we getting nitrogen fixation in the 1890s?
