In the late 19th and early 20th century in America, there was a sense that things could be improved upon. A sense that reforms should be enacted. A sense that progress should be made. As a result, we got the Progressive Era, which has very little to do with automobile insurance, but a little to do with automobiles. All this overlapped with the Gilded Age, and is a little confusing, but here we have it. Basically, people were trying to solve some of the social problems that came with the benefits of industrial capitalism. To oversimplify, there was a competition between the corporations' desire to keep wages low and workers' desire to have a decent life. Improving food safety, reducing child labor, and unions were all on the agenda in the Progressive Era. While progress was being made, and people were becoming more free, these gains were not equally distributed. Jim Crow laws were put in place in the south, and immigrant rights were restricted as well. So once again on Crash Course, things aren't so simple. Hey teachers and students - Check out CommonLit's free collection of reading passages and curriculum resources to learn more about the events of this episode. The Progressive Era was marked by rapid reactions to the Gilded Age: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/the-progressive-era Literature such as The Jungle revealed the horrifying conditions of factory industries, one of several which were overhauled with new progressive regulations: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/excerpt-from-the-jungle

Wisconsin Vietnam War Stories: Mike Allen
"You were scared, but you couldn't feel scared because it would overtake you." "We were fighting to get our own selves back home. We had to protect each other to get back." - Mike Allen --- TRANSCRIPT: ***These oral histories and transcripts may contain language that can be considered profane, racially insensitive or otherwise offensive. The language has been retained to give an accurate historical record of their remarks.*** I was 20-years-old. I was drafted. The Vietnamese called - when they did - they called me the Little Kid. They said, "No, you're that Little Kid. You don't belong here." You know, my government says I do, so. But the jungles, they were hot. They were muggy with the humidity. You see rain every day. We got rained on every day and we slept in it. We slept in the mud, so we were always wet. As far as clean clothes, I wore my first set for roughly 80 days; 80 days. I only had like four or five changes of clean clothes while I was there. I carried a hundred pounds. I didn't weigh much more than a hundred pounds; weighed about a hundred twenty, so I carried a hundred pounds. You didn't want to run short in case you hit the shit. I carried a claymore mine, trip flares, three to four smokes, six hand grenades, roughly two thousand rounds of M60 ammo. I carried nine quarts of water and c-rations, and a poncho and C4 for blowing LZs and det cord. So you had to have all that stuff on you, plus my M16 and three bandoliers of M16 ammo, seven magazines to a bandolier. It was a proud, you know. The company was a proud company and the unit was a proud unit, you know. We were a swing battalion. Wherever the shit was hitting the fan, we had to get to an LZ and get picked up and flown into the hot spot. But it wasn't dull. It was a hell of a camping trip, but very serious, you know. You know, you kind of looked forward to getting picked up and getting out of the jungle in the helicopter because you knew you were pretty safe. You were secure up there as long as you didn't fall out. But still you were being moved to another area where there was trouble, you know, another shit hole. I have an Air Medal and that's for 25 CAs into an unsecured LZ. I survived long enough to get the Air Medal. You were scared, but you couldn't feel scared because it would overtake you. You know what I mean? You know they're watching you and you just try to keep your distance between each person. And this way they're not going to get greedy. The gooks always kind of liked to seem like they wanted to get greedy. So they wanted to wait for somebody to bunch up and then if they were going to mess with you then they'd come at you. I was just another person in the squad up in the mountains in a platoon in the company doing what we did, which was to protect each other. We were fighting because we were thrown in there, and we were fighting to get our own selves back home. We had to protect each other to get back. I think about it all the time. You know, I got those photographs just to make sure it's not a dream, you know, and it actually took place. It's there. You know, you remember your buddies. You remember what you know, what they did, even though you're not in contact with them all. You know the good times that you had, even the shitty times that you had, you know, over there. But it's a true brother-friendship. Its a bond that don't, you know, ever break.
Sound Frequency Moved The Megaliths?
Sign up to our online magazine for even more mysteries: https://www.patreon.com/MysteryHistory You Can Also Follow Us On Social Media: https://www.facebook.com/MysteryHistoryBook https://twitter.com/Mysterytweetery All over the earth ancient structures can be found, megaliths made of quarried stones many tons in weight. They are often found to have been perched atop of one another, with no mortar, and seemingly little effort. Stonehenge for example, underwent a restoration effort shortly after the second world war. An project which consisted of several cranes, diggers, trucks and lorries. One has to wonder, if one goes by currently accepted timelines of course, just how did such primitive people manage to build these amazing, enormous structures. Structures such as the very ancient gateway in Tonka, still consisting of 3, 40 ton lumps of coral, the granite stones within the kings chamber at Khufu, weighing in at 80 tons, or The Stone of the South’ at Baalbek in Lebanon, the largest officially recorded worked monolith on Earth, weighing in at a staggering 1242 tons. There is of course other theories, and although to some, one in particular may not seem at all possible, it is far more of a viable option than currently attested archaeological views. Along with Stonehenge, another site we intend to unravel in the future, although allot more modern, is coral castle, an Oolite limestone structure that was built in Florida, and in particular, Edward Leedskalnin, the man who built it. With the the aid of what some suspect, may have been a mysterious black box, often spotted atop of his confusing array of multi ton lifting, wooden contraptions. This leads us on to our main topic of the video, it seems that Edward, like a few other known individuals throughout history, may have deciphered a piece of lost knowledge, information which allowed them to create rudimentary lifting devices, with the ability of lifting stones many tons in weight effortlessly. In the small pockets of the world where advanced ancient cultures lived, prospered, and vanished into history, places where their ancient ruins remained untouched by all but nature, testimonies were found describing these exact technologies. Sites such as Puma punka, Stonehenge, and in particular, Easter island, where not only does there still exist accounts of the huge moai statues, floated along the coast by way of strange chants, the places in which the priests hid within the caves also still exist, these rituals in apparent frequency, could this be a form of lost knowledge? Or technology? Which was responsible for the building of the many unexplained sites, found around the world. Vibrational technology, capable of making any inorganic object regardless of size, weightless? This would have allowed craft, previously impossible of flight, to float across the heavens, vindicating many historical accounts of vimana’s. Additionally, the levitation of physical objects, by tapping into their atomic resonance is currently being “redeveloped…” The University of Bristol in England, has created a handheld device with an array of speakers that can levitate light materials with sound alone. The more time that passes, and the more technologically advanced we become, the more we begin to understand these amazing, ancient structures. And although, for some, the realisations that these technological epiphanies induce, for example, accepting the possibility of a past, highly advanced ancient civilization, which ended with an equally as possible, global cataclysm… Could be seen as “altering” of a world view, to understand whats true, is far from detrimental… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AS67HA4YMCs&t=3s http://www.bristol.ac.uk/news/2017/august/acoustic-levitation.html https://hiddenremote.com/2017/08/29/ancient-aliens-alien-frequency-used-move-megaliths/

Tower Hill State Park
Tower Hill State Park is a 77 acre park located on the banks of the Wisconsin River near Spring Green, WI. It's main feature is a 120 ft. shot tower and 90 ft. tunnel where lead was dropped to create symmetrical shot balls using the "Watts Method." In 1782, William Watts of Bristol, England, patented a method to produce shot that was round and free of imperfections by dropping molten lead from a great height. Watts' invention was inspired by observing falling raindrops. Shot towers were first built in America after President Thomas Jefferson imposed the Embargo Act in 1808. Tower Hill, relatively close to the lead mining regions of Wisconsin, used a crude 120 ft shaft and 90 ft tunnel dug into a sandstone cliff to produce shot from 1833-1861. The lead shot was shipped by barge down the Wisconsin and Mississippi Rivers to St. Louis. The park has 15 campsites and provides canoe and kayak access to the Wisconsin River. The bluff trails give visitors excellent views of the river valley. Nearby is Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin. Slideshow by John Wanserski.

Produced by the Marion Power Shovel Company, this fascinating movie looks at copper and copper mining in the 1960s, when the American mines were at peak production and financial troubles loomed. The film looks at the future of mining, including the development of efficiencies to keep mines in business. Open pit mining techniques are shown, with a focus on the Southwest. At 2:00, Bingham Canyon and the Utah Mining Company pit (also known as the Kennecott Copper Mine) is seen. At 2:40, various open pit mines are seen which use either trucks or trains to remove ore. Although they are not named, it's likely that one of them is the Phelps-Dodge mine at Bisbee, Arizona. At 5:40, exploratory core drilling is shown. At 6:30, exploration programs are shown including at 6:43, an engineering team that maps mine development. Various drill systems are seen at 9:00, including the rotary drill. At 10:30, preparations are seen towards using explosives with the burying of dynamite and detonators for excavation. At 12:12, loading of explosives is seen with an emphasis on safe handling. At 14:51, a cage drill is shown in use allowing rocks to be drilled in the field (without being moved by shovels) for explosive removal. At 16:00, a small 4.5 yard bucket shovel is shown being used to move blast debris. At 16:00, a 6-yard loading shovel is seen. At 17:49, overburden waste from the pit is loaded on a train so that it can be moved and dumped at a remote area. At 18:50, a 13-yard shovel is seen in use with a large truck also in use. As the narrator explains, these large size equipment is needed to lower unit costs of copper, and are an economic necessity given the modern financial conditions. At 19:52, the motorized wheel principle of new types of mining trucks is seen, and the narrator comments that next generation trucks will carry over 100 tons of ore. At 22:55, a grader is seen working the mine roads, and the narrator comments about how tires wear out so quickly on the job that they account for up to 1% of mining costs. At 24:30, railroad trains are shown on the move at a mine, moving 60-125 ton per car loads. The narrator comments further on the use of railroads in pit mining. At 26:30, a large shovel is seen loading a train, sprinkling the loads with water to hold down dust. The large boulders in the loads make this type of work dangerous. At 27:16, ore loads are dumped into a crusher at a mill site. At 27:40, a rail waste dump into a slag pile is seen. At 28:00, a train-based grader is used to clear tracks of debris. The narrator notes that the mining railroads are some of the busiest in the USA and the world. At 28:44, new tracks are installed due to various demands, and mechanized railroad ballast systems are used for fast track installation. At 31:20, a skip hoist is seen being used to take ore from a deep, small pit to the surface. At 32:50, a series of leeching ponds is seen, with water percolated through the ponds to precipitate copper. At 34:00, a machine shop is seen at the mine, providing repair and maintenance services at the mine. At 35:40, a heavy repair part is unloaded at the mine using a power shovel. At 36:00, a research laboratory is seen at work, developing new uses of copper in the atomic and other industries. At 36:40, the IBM Ramac computer is seen. The IBM 305 RAMAC was the first commercial computer that used a moving-head hard disk drive (magnetic disk storage) for secondary storage. The film ends with a shot of a heap of pennies, with the narrator noting that the industry is working hard to expand production to fulfill future needs. The Bingham Canyon Mine, more commonly known as Kennecott Copper Mine, is extracting a large porphyry copper deposit southwest of Salt Lake City, Utah, in the Oquirrh Mountains. The mine is the largest man-made excavation in the world and produced more copper than any other mine in history – more than 19 million tons. The mine has been in production since 1906, and has resulted in the creation of a pit over 0.6 miles (970 m) deep, 2.5 miles (4 km) wide, and covering 1,900 acres (770 ha). Marion Power Shovel Company was an American firm that designed, manufactured and sold steam shovels, power shovels, blast hole drills, excavators, and dragline excavators. The company was a major supplier of shovels for the construction of the Panama Canal. Founded in Marion, Ohio in August, 1884 as the Marion Steam Shovel Company, the company grew through sales and acquisitions throughout the 20th century. The company changed its name to Marion Power Shovel Company in 1946 to reflect the industry's change from steam power to diesel power.

At the Heart of Badger
Verlyn Mueller worked for 26 years in the instrument shop at the Badger Ordnance Works (also known as the Badger Ammunition Plant). From 1966-1991, Veryln spent his days repairing machinery in the munitions factory while adhering to strict regulations designed to keep workers safe while they handled explosive material. Now retired, Veryln serves as president and archivist for the Badger History Group. But the usual texts and photos aren't the only records of service carefully cataloged by this historian. Verlyn keeps another physical memory of Badger's history in his pocket. In this story, a landscape of danger leaves an indelible mark on the body, transforming a life-threatening occupational hazard into a life-saving medicine. Verlyn reminds us how personal health can become inextricably bound to a certain place and time.

Around the Corner with John McGivern | Program | #306 -- Prairie du Chien
[Latest Airdate: June 15, 2017] [Original Airdate: February 13, 2014] This is an old river town, so sometimes it's tough to sort the facts from the myths. Ghosts in old jails, fish that fall from the sky on New Year's Eve that people kiss, grannies who play basketball, and a man that makes jerky out of just about every creature he catches: Only in Prairie du Chien are those things facts. Also facts: You can absorb late 19th century family life at Villa Louis, sympathize with the British and American soldiers who fought the only Wisconsin battle of the War of 1812, contemplate the lives of Native Americans by visiting the Indian Effigy Mounds, and then consider the history of the entire universe with the Starsplitters! After that, rejoin life in the early 21st century and eat, shop, quilt, play cards, gaze at the Mississippi, and go to Mass at the oldest Catholic parish in Wisconsin. John Gurda told us that Prairie du Chien means "field of the dog." Since John McGivern took Spanish in high school instead of French, he thought it meant "a prairie of chins."

The Power of Choice: The Life and Ideas of Milton Friedman - Full Video
Teacher, scientist, author, intellectual, and winner of the 1976 Nobel Prize in Economics, Milton Friedman was one of the 20th century's greatest proponents of free markets and individual liberty. The Power of Choice tells the story of his life. Overcoming almost universal opposition to his unconventional views, Friedman persevered, until eventually, many of his ideas came to be widely accepted. He lived to see those ideas transform economic theory and practice, inspiring changes that have improved the lives of millions of people worldwide. Through interviews with leading economists and policymakers such as Alan Greenspan and Estonia's Prime Minister, Mart Laar, The Power of Choice explores Friedman's tremendous influence on policy - and daily life - in Estonia, Chile, and the United States. This 90-minute documentary, which premiered on public television January 2007, includes a bonus interview with Milton Friedman and Bob Chitester, creator of the Free To Choose television series.

Cherry Mine Part 08
"THE FLAMES CAUGHT US" Cherry Mine 1909 The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library will open a major exhibit "The Flames Caught Us" Cherry Mine 1909 on November 1, 2009 to mark the 100th anniversary of the Cherry Mine Disaster. On November 13, 1909, a fire broke out at the St. Paul Coal mine in Cherry, Illinois that claimed the lives of 259 men and boys. The exhibit will be free to the public running through March 31, 2010 at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library. Fire in the Mine! The St. Paul Coal Company Mine in Cherry, a mining town in Bureau County, began operation in 1905 and supplied the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad with 300,000 tons of coal annually for its locomotives. The mine featured the latest equipment and operated smoothly until November 13, 1909, when a torch caught a load of hay on fire about 500 feet below the surface. Of the 490 men and boys in the mine at the time, a total of 259 died from the fire itself or the poisonous gases it produced. A Story of Heroism Heroic rescue efforts, including one in which 12 rescuers themselves died, filled newspaper accounts of the disaster. The one incredible survival story involved the "eight-day" men, a group of 21 trapped miners who sealed themselves off from the fire and were rescued eight days later by a team that had been sent below to retrieve bodies. Voices from the Past The exhibit will tell the story of the coal mining disaster in the words of those who witnessed first hand the tragic events in November 1909. The collections of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library which include photographs, coroner's reports, oral histories, published books, newspaper articles, government reports, music, and manuscript resource materials pertaining to the mine disaster will be used in conjunction with coal mining artifacts to tell and interpret the story of the tragedy at the Cherry Mine. Lessons Learned While informing the public about the coal mining industry, immigrant labor, and mine safety at the turn of the 20th Century, the exhibit will take them beyond the tragedy to understand the changes the Cherry Mine Disaster made in the advancement of labor welfare and mine safety enjoyed by miners in the 21st Century. As a result of the Cherry Mine Disaster, safety regulations were implemented throughout the mining industry, and a liability act, which became what is now the Illinois Workers' Compensation Act, was enacted.

Around the Corner with John McGivern | Program | #611 -- Horicon
[Latest Airdate: December 28, 2017] [Original Airdate: March 30, 2017] If all you know of Horicon is that there's a Marsh here, then you have (just like John did) a lot to learn. Truth is, the Horicon Marsh Wildlife Sanctuary --- loved and known by bird and wildlife lovers throughout the world - deserves all the acclaim it gets. But even though the Marsh stole our hearts (what a remarkable place!), the City of Horicon steals the show. The John Deere Horicon Works is a shining example of this community's ability to retain big-time manufacturing, but the smaller business here are no less impressive. Horicon Bank and Leroy Meats are stars in this community. Sure-Fire Inc., Family Chiropractic and the Rock River Tap are trusted Horicon staples. And the experiences we had at the Satterlee Clark House and Horicon Marsh Boat Tours will be remembered as standouts of season 6. Just one question: Does John have to wear the rubber hip waders to be considered an honorary Marshman? (He'd be happy to...)

Spray Painting Hazards and Air Line Respirator 1930s
A conflict between industrialization and worker health developed in the painting industry during the early 1900s with the introduction of the spray machine. This technological innovation allowed the application of paint at greater speed and lower cost than hand painting and increased the rate at which painters were exposed to lead and other toxins contained in paint. By the mid-1920s, the spray machine was being used by painters for a wide variety of work. Although workers had expressed growing concern over the safety of the spray gun since World War I, painters and union leaders began to formally organize opposition to the device in 1924. At the core of their resistance was the belief that the spray machine was indeed hazardous to the health of workers. The first official recognition of the hazard of spray painting came in 1924, when the Wisconsin Industrial Commission investigated the spray machine and established guidelines for the regulation of its use within the state. The commission recommended a variety of regulations setting restrictions on the type of spray equipment that could be used, established mandatory use of ventilation and safety devices, and outlined limits on the number of hours per day painters could use the machines. These regulations sparked debate from both sides of the issue. For a good review of this debate, read SPLATTER! SPLATTER! SPLATTER! Workers Health and the Spray Machine Debate by Rochelle L. Frounfelker, MPH, and published in the American Journal of Public Health. 2006 February; 96(2): 214221 and on the web at: http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articlerender.fcgi?artid=1470472 . For information on a recent effort to protect painters health, see the CPWR report (http://www.cpwr.com/publications/painters.html ) on the main findings of a three-year study comparing the effectiveness of differing safety and health requirements for painters in three states -- Alaska, Oregon, and Washington. The study shows Alaska's mandatory Hazardous Painting Certification Standard is more effective in reaching a broad cross-section of painters, improves self-protective behaviors against solvents and other hazards, and costs less per painter than voluntary training in the two other states. This is clipped from the 1940s film, The Air We Breathe, a ppromotional documentary from the Mine Safety Appliances Company (MSA) on the importance of the air respirator to industrial health and safety. At the end, the film explains that industry and government cooperation has removed the "menace in the air" and urges workers in various industries to use the respirator.

Dilbert's Scott Adams Explains How He Knew Trump Would 'Win Bigly'
The cartoonist-turned-political-prognisticator talks about Trump, "master persuaders," and winning arguments in a "world where facts don't matter." Subscribe to our YouTube channel: http://youtube.com/reasontv Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Reason.Magazine/ Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/reason Subscribe to our podcast at iTunes: https://goo.gl/az3a7a Reason is the planet's leading source of news, politics, and culture from a libertarian perspective. Go to reason.com for a point of view you won't get from legacy media and old left-right opinion magazines. ---------------- In 2015, Scott Adams, the cartoonist behind the massively popular comic strip Dilbert, boldly predicted that Donald Trump would win the 2016 presidential election. "The reason I can see it coming is because I have studied this field of persuasion," says Adams. "I saw this Trump character and he had the full tool set." The 60-year-old Bay Area resident doesn't agree with Trump on many political issues, but his prediction was enough for his to receive death threats from embittered Hillary Clinton supporters. Adam's new book, Win Bigly: Persuasion in a World Where Facts Don't Matter, is both a detailed analysis of how Trump reframed political rhetoric during the 2016 campaign and a guide to how all of us can communicate more effectively and persuasively. Adams sat down with Reason's Nick Gillespie in front of a live audience in San Francisco to talk about his book, his "extreme liberal" views, the popularity of his live broadcasts with followers via Twitter, and why Trump is a "master persuader."

He played sheepshead, pitched horseshoes, thought about climbing to the top of the M, visited an Amish tobacco farm, toured the most beautiful mansion in town while talking to a parrot, ate gooseberry pie at the Owl Café, and envied Kip as he flew his PPC (Powered Para Chute).

Flint Mayor Considers Suing Rick Snyder

Mayor Karen Weaver and Governor Rick Snyder sat down for 35 minutes this morning. Weaver said the governor was dismissive about concerns over bottled water stations being shut down. She said Snyder essentially told her that residents need to "get over it." The centers closed last week, after the state determined Flint’s tap water meets federal and state quality standards. Thousands of Flint residents had come to rely on the state’s bottled water giveaways after the city’s drinking water was found to be contaminated with lead.

Michelle Thaller Maniac Lecture, March 22, 2017
Dr. Michelle Thaller, an Astronomer and Deputy Director of Science for Communications at NASA Headquarters, presented a Maniac lecture entitled, "Emotional Science.” As a science communicator, for years, Michelle has watched audiences, large and small, respond to science talks. All too often, she has watched the most fascinating, awe-inspiring images and discoveries fail to even keep an audience awake. Without an emotional connection to latch on to, most people do not respond to scientists, which in the past may have been innocuous –just perpetuating a stereotype of the blank, overly intellectual science personality. But in today’s world of deniers, false news, and a desperate need to address climate change, emotional irrelevance is a luxury we can no longer afford.”

David Ewalt, "Of Dice and Men: The Story of Dungeons & Dragons..." | Talks at Google
"Of Dice and Men: The Story of Dungeons & Dragons and The People Who Play It" Even if you've never played Dungeons & Dragons, you probably know someone who has: The game has had a profound influence on our culture. Released in 1974—decades before the Internet and social media—Dungeons & Dragons is one of the original ultimate nerd subcultures, and is still revered by more than thirty million fans. Now, the authoritative history and magic of the game is revealed by an award-winning journalist and life-long dungeon master. From its origins on the battlefields of ancient Europe, through the hysteria that linked it to satanic rituals and teen suicides, and to its apotheosis as father of the modern video game industry, Of Dice and Men recounts the development of a game played by some of the most fascinating people in the world. Chronicling the surprising history of D&D's origins (one largely unknown even to hardcore players) while examining the game's profound impact, Ewalt weaves laser-sharp subculture analysis with his own present-day gaming experiences. An enticing blend of history, journalism, narrative, and memoir, Of Dice and Men sheds light on America's most popular (and widely misunderstood) form of collaborative entertainment.

7. "A Hell of a Storm": The Kansas-Nebraska Act and the Birth  of the Republican Party, 1854-55
The Civil War and Reconstruction (HIST 119) Professor Blight narrates some of the important political crises of the 1850s. The lecture begins with an account of the Compromise of 1850, the swan song of the great congressional triumvirate--Henry Clay, Daniel Webster, and John C. Calhoun.

FB Group #HRCRatLine Due to the very large number of citations and sources, I now publish them with each slide. I try to order New York Times Pulitzers first, then former NYT Pulitzer winners, then New York Times writers. Any other reputable source like WaPo, WaTimes, Tribune, LA Times, Seattle P-I, etc are then list. Then second tier media followed by alternative media. Murdered journalist and investigators get a higher ranking than remotely sourced stories through offshore news funnels like SOHR. https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1X2ZNdpHMx23Nm-pGZULrBbU6SxpfiNMId6KXqe3deIE/edit?usp=sharing
