Peter Mungo Jupp: Instant Fossilization |  EU2017
 
40:34
Peter Jupp will discuss petrification as instantaneous and under the control of dynamic Earth-shaking events. What have we found on Earth to demonstrate this hypothesis? A forest of giant trees turned to solid rock. A soft-bodied crab petrified to rock and enclosed in the center of a basalt Thunderegg. Dinosaur remains that conceal a heart replete with chambers but turned to iron. A shoal of fish in their death throes petrified within the limestone. Was their end instantaneous and more importantly what force of nature created this scenario? Classically, geological time is the vehicle cited but Peter will show that there is compelling evidence for a new paradigm. Peter ‘Mungo’ Jupp is an Australian archaeologist who majored in Archaeology at the University of Melbourne (BA) and also attended their School of Creative Arts where he studied filmmaking techniques and production. In earlier years, he studied Applied Chemistry at RMIT and later fine arts at Chisholm Institute of Technology. In his commercial career, he lectured in Medical Imaging at the Sydney University School of Radiology. Wide scientific knowledge was gained while working for Siemens medical, Hewlett-Packard medical, Toshiba medical, ATL, and Medtel. The resulting culmination of knowledge in areas such as magnetic phenomena, chemistry, and biology, as well as ancient history and mythology, powerfully informs his unique slant on archaeology. Peter has produced 22 films on “Ancient Destructions,” following his passionate interest in uncovering lost human and earth eras. These films can be viewed on his subscription website: www.mungoflix.com Peter also writes articles on catastrophism themes at his other website: www.ancientdestructions.com.

Logging Camp 1880-1910 - Living History Museum
 
22:16
Forest History Center Logging Camp 1890s to 1910 (Minnesota Historical Society) Grand Rapids Minnesota. The logging of the forests was the most dramatic event in the relationship between people and the environment of Minnesota. Because so many Scandinavians settled in Minnesota the lumber camps where manned by a huge number of Swedes and Norwegians. So if you think your Norse grandparents worked as a logger this is the Minnesota Historical site you want to visit to see how he may of worked and lived for a few years. White pine logging was done in the winter. Logging camps were usually used for one or two seasons until the timber was cut, and then moved to another location. 1890s to 1910 The “golden era” of lumbering in Minnesota. Logging railroads reached deep into the woods as steam power became the mover of logs. Over 20,000 lumberjacks and half that number of draft horses were working in the northern forests of the state. An equal number of men worked in the state’s sawmills and another 20,000 people worked in related wood-production factories. Yet, dark clouds emerged on the lumbering skyline; catastrophic forest fires, fueled by logging operations leaving dry tree tops called "slash," swept the landscape and devastated many northern communities — Hinckley in 1894, Chisholm in 1908, Baudette in 1910, and Cloquet & Moose Lake in 1918. 1900 The peak year of white pine logging. From that year alone, Minnesota pine could build over 600,000 two-story homes or a boardwalk nine feet wide encircling the earth at the equator. Visitors are welcome to explore the fire tower and visitor center on their own, and take a short walk to the moored river “wanigan” — the floating cook shack and bunkhouse used by river drivers on the Mississippi River when moving logs down river to the mills. At the beginning of the century, the most viable and economical way to move logs from forests to the sawmills was to float them down the river. These river drives were the most colorful and dangerous part of the lumbering story. The river drives took place early in the spring, to take advantage of the high water resulting from the melting snow. The wanigan, a barge-like boat, was the headquarters for the drive. Guided 60-minute tours of the recreated logging camp leave the visitor center on the hour during summer hours. During winter season, visits to the logging camp are self-guided. Tours begin in the visitor center with an introductory video and time to explore the exhibits. The visitor center also houses the museum store and restrooms.

OTS Episode 2: The Saunders & the Stockyards   (TV Cut)
 
24:44
(Updated 7-5-2018) Whether Cowtown was a final destination or a stop along what was dubbed the Chisholm Trail - the Fort Worth Stockyards became the place where ranchers - with their working cowboys - came to sell their cattle to the waiting Commission agents. As the stockyards became profitable, so did the ranchers who had cattle to sell. This attracted the attention of other savvy ranchers and business owners who were looking to expand their horizons… all the way to Fort Worth. One such business owner was George W. Saunders whose family had settled in Goliad county, east of San Antonio. At the age of ten, his father gave him ten calves with his very own brand to distinguish them from that of his brothers on their large family ranch. Through his teens and as a young man, he helped run the ranch driving larger and larger herds of cattle to the Texas Coast and Louisiana Markets, and later up to the stockyards in Abilene Kansas, on a trail that ran right through… you guessed it - Fort Worth. But because of his knack for finding hot markets and making money, he transitioned from driving cattle up the trails himself to staying put in San Antonio by first becoming a commission agent, and eventually opening his own commission office around 1888.

Lynchings in the United States rose in number after the American Civil War in the late 1800s, following the emancipation of slaves; they declined in the 1920s but have continued to take place into the 21st century. Most lynchings were of African-American men in the South, but women were also lynched, and white lynchings of blacks occurred in Midwestern and border states, especially during the 20th-century Great Migration of blacks out of the South. The purpose was to enforce white supremacy and intimidate blacks by racial terrorism. On a per capita basis lynchings were also common in California and the Old West, especially of Latinos, although they represented less than 10% of the national total. Native Americans and Asian Americans were also lynched. Other ethnicities (white, Finnish-American, Jewish, Irish, Italian-American) were occasionally lynched. The stereotype of a lynching is a hanging, because hangings are what crowds of people saw, and are also easy to photograph. Some hangings were professionally photographed and sold as postcards, which were popular souvenirs in some parts of the U.S. Victims were also killed by mobs in a variety of other ways: shot repeatedly, burned alive, forced to jump off a bridge, dragged behind cars, and the like. Sometimes they were tortured as well, with body parts sometimes removed and sold as souvenirs. Occasionally lynchings were not fatal (see Lynching survivors in the United States). A "mock" lynching, putting the rope around the neck of someone suspected of concealing information, might be used to compel "confessions".According to the Tuskegee Institute, 4,743 people were lynched between 1882 and 1968 in the United States, including 3,446 African Americans and 1,297 whites. More than 73 percent of lynchings in the post-Civil War period occurred in the Southern states. According to the Equal Justice Initiative, 4,084 African-Americans were lynched between 1877 and 1950 in the South.Lynchings were most frequent from 1890 to the 1920s, with a peak in 1892. Lynchings were often large mob actions, attended by hundreds or thousands of watchers, sometimes announced in advance in newspapers and in one instance with a special train. However, in the later 20th century lynchings became more secretive, and were conducted by smaller groups of people. According to Michael Pfeifer, the prevalence of lynching in postbellum America reflects lack of confidence in the "due process" judicial system. He links the decline in lynching in the early twentieth century with "the advent of the modern death penalty": "legislators renovated the death penalty...out of direct concern for the alternative of mob violence". He also cites "the modern, racialized excesses of u ...

Grenoble
 
33:05
Grenoble (/ɡrəˈnoʊbəl/;French pronunciation: ​[ɡʁə.nɔbl]; Franco-Provençal: Grenoblo) is a city in southeastern France, at the foot of the French Alps where the river Drac joins the Isère. Located in the Rhône-Alpes region, Grenoble is the capital of the department of Isère. The proximity of the mountains, as well as its size, has led to the city being known in France as the "Capital of the Alps". Grenoble's history goes back more than 2,000 years, at a time when it was a small Gallic village. While it gained in stature by becoming the capital of the Dauphiné in the 11th century, Grenoble remained for most of its history a modest parliamentary and garrison city on the borders of the kingdom of France.

It is most often used to characterize informal public executions by a mob in order to punish an alleged transgressor, or to intimidate a group. It is an extreme form of informal group social control such as charivari, skimmington, riding the rail, and tarring and feathering, and often conducted with the display of a public spectacle for maximum intimidation. It is to be considered an act of terrorism and punishable by law. Instances of lynchings and similar mob violence can be found in every society.In the United States, lynchings of African Americans, typically by hanging, became frequent in the South during the period after the Reconstruction era and especially during the decades on either side of the turn of the 20th century. At the time, Southern states were passing new constitutions and laws to disenfranchise African Americans and impose legal segregation and Jim Crow rule. Most lynchings were conducted by white mobs against black victims, often suspects taken from jail before they were tried by all-white juries, or even before arrest. The political message—the promotion of white supremacy and black powerlessness—was an important element of the ritual. Lynchings were photographed and published as postcards, which were popular souvenirs in the U.S., to expand the intimidation of the acts. Victims were sometimes shot, burned alive, or otherwise tortured and mutilated in the public events. In some cases the mutilated body parts were taken as mementos by the spectators. Particularly in the West, other minorities—Native Americans, Mexicans and Asians—were also lynched. The South had the states with the highest total numbers of lynchings.

SUMMARY ======= Cavite (Filipino: Lalawigan ng Kabite; Tagalog pronunciation: [ˈkäbite̞], [käˈbiːte̞] or [käˈbitɛː]; Chabacano: Provincia de Cavite) is a province in the Philippines located on the southern shores of Manila Bay in the Calabarzon region on Luzon island. Situated just 21-kilometre (13 mi) south of the capital, it is one of the most industrialised and fastest growing provinces because of its close proximity to Metro Manila. With a population of 3,678,301 in 2015, it is the most populated province in the country. For over 300 years, the province played an important role in both the country's colonial past and eventual fight for independence, earning it the title "Historical Capital of the Philippines". It became the cradle of the Philippine Revolution, which led to the renouncement of Spanish colonial control, finally culminating in the Philippine Declaration of Independence on June 12, 1898 in Kawit, Cavite. The old provincial capital, Cavite City also hosted docks for the Manila galleon, becoming an essential part of commerce between Asia and Latin America.
