Friend me on Facebook! on.fb.me Read more about Nikola Tesla amzn.to I made this for the 154th anniversary of Nikola Tesla’s birth, which was July 10th. Thanks to www.vvomedia.com for helping promote this video. Nikola Tesla was born on July 10th 1856, in the territory of modern day Croatia to his two Serbian parents. Tesla grew up into bright inquisitive, yet eccentric child, who found himself fascinated by the world around him. Tesla once tried to fly by jumping off the roof of a barn while holding on to an umbrella. He devised a bug powered motor using Junebugs, but had to abort his experiment after a friend decided to eat some of the bugs (Tesla thought this was gross). He once attempted to generate electricity by rubbing two cats together, which resulted in two very mad cats and a scratched up Tesla. On June 6th, 1884, Tesla arrived in the United States. He was hired by Thomas Edison to do basic electrical engineering, but moved up to re-designing the direct current generators that ran Edison’s business. Edison offered Tesla 000, or about .1 million in today’s currency to make these improvements. After completing this assignment, Tesla asked about the payment for his work. Edison didn’t pay out the money. He claimed that he wasn’t serious about the payment, that Tesla didn’t “understand American humor”. Tesla eventually left Edison’s company and partnered with George Westinghouse in 1888 to commercialize his system of alternating current (AC). The problem here

The Titanic is the most legendary ship in history because of the scale of project, it was a reflection of the injustices of 20th century and its tragic fate. Titanic is famous because of its biggest maritime disaster in history. It is a source of fascination for history enthusiasts and generations to come. Science has uncovered some of its mysteries when its wreck was discovered in 1985.

A major British shipping company, White Star Line decided in early 20th century that it would build the biggest and prestigious passenger ship of the world – RMS Titanic. Its construction began at the Harland and Wolf naval construction site in 1909 and Thomas Andrews was in charge of the design.

The Titanic was an enormous and the biggest ship ever built at that time. It came towards the end of the steam engine era. Its length was over 880 feet and weighed over 46000 tons. It had a passenger space of 3547 people. The ship dazzled others because of its luxury and sheer size. The engineers of Titanic took pride in building a mighty ship that would take passengers across the Atlantic with style.

Life on board TitanicWhite Star Line had designed the most luxurious liner to accommodate wealthy first class passengers. The facilities were very vast including a top quality restaurant, sports center and a swimming pool. The second class passengers had common conditions for travelling and the third class passengers simply boarded to reach the other side.

Inaugural Journey and SinkingThe ill fated Titanic met its tragic ending during its first and only journey. It started on 10 April 1912 from Southampton and was to end at the New York. The ship was carrying 2228 people from all walks of life, social background and nationalities. An experienced British captain, Edward John Smith was in charge of the ship. Titanic’s inaugural voyage drew a host of English and American celebrities and businessmen.

Titanic sank on the night of 14 April 1912 four days after it sailed when it struck an iceberg and its floating parts gradually filled with water until it started sinking. Titanic took almost three hours for Titanic to become completely submerged. The lack of preparation and poor decisions resulted in deaths of 1522 out of the 2228 people present on board.

The biggest cause of the tragedy was the lack of lifeboats with the priority for first class passengers during evacuation. White Star Line had amazingly not equipped the ship with more than 16 lifeboats which could only carry 1178 passengers. They were also underused and only rescued about 700 passengers while the rest died in the freezing waters.

Cedar Park, Texas: A Short History

Did you know that on December 29th, 1982 Texas Highway Department archaeologists found a well-preserved skeleton of a pre-historic human female? It was during the construction of RM1431 linking Cedar Park to Round Rock. It is one of the best preserved burial sites ever found in the United States and carbon dating says she lived between 10-13,000 years ago. You can still see the historical marker on the south side of 1431 approximately one mile west of Parmer Lane, so next time you are heading that way why not stop and take a look. Much later those same Indian tribes were still using the Cedar Park area as hunting grounds and things didn’t really start changing until 1836 when, just after Texas gained its independence from Mexico and President Lamar decided to drive the tribes out, Captain John J. Tumlinson and his company of 60 Texas Rangers built a fort on the nearby Block House Creek to protect settlers at the behest of Major Robert McAlpin Williamson – after whom the county would eventually be named. They only remained for a couple of months before being recalled to Bastrop to cover the flight of families in the face of Santa Anna’s advancing forces that were trying to quell the new independent Texas. This “Runaway Scrape” as it became known did not end until Santa Anna’s defeat at San Jacinto, and by the time the Rangers returned to Cedar Park in 1837 they found the fort burned to the ground. The Block House community grew slowly over the next thirty years and New Hope Baptist Church was chartered in October of 1868, the cemetery first being used in 1869 to bury the deacon’s wife, Martha Inman. From 1871-1919 the church also doubled as they schoolhouse. New Hope still stands today on W New Hope Dr. The Running Brushy settlement sprang up around the home of successful cattle driver George Cluck whose house stood on the west side of what is now Highway 183 near the Indian Midden, at the headwaters of Cluck Creek. In 1874 a pot office was authorized with Joel Sutton as postmaster, a position later taken over by Harriet Cluck. But, as is true of many pioneer settlements of the period, the real catalyst for growth was the coming of the railroad. The Northwestern completed the track between Austin and Burnet in 1882, cutting across the Cluck land. George sold a portion of his property to the creation of a side track and park – by all accounts a beautiful place of benches, pebbled walkways and flower beds that served as a community meeting area for many years. The railroad company renamed the settlement Brueggerhoff after a company official as was the style of the time, and the railroad foreman’s old house is still standing on the north side of Brushy Creek Road just east of the tracks. By 1887 there was the post office, store, schoolhouse and log-built church, and it was in this year the community was renamed Cedar Park (after the beautiful community area), and as the name suggests, the economy of the growing town was bolstered by the abundance of cedar thicket from which cedar posts were made for fencing. Cedar Park Cemetery was officially deeded in 1912 on part of the Cluck ranch and both George and Hattie are buried there. In 1923 Cedar Park and Block House schools were combined into the Whitestone School which used to stand at the northwest corner of 183 and RR 1431, but was demolished for highway improvements in 1952. It is certain that the original settlers would not recognize the modern Cedar Park, now a major city adjunct of the capital, but there are still some signs of the old community and its pioneers. Check out the historical markers that dot the town: The Cluck Homestead (Quest Parkway and Discovery), Cedar Park Cluck Cemetery (West Park Lane), and the New Hope Church at New Hope and 183.

[Short film] Blow Out Sale

Blowout Sale by the filmmaking team of Timothy Kendall, Chris Marrs & Danny Pudi: “In the process of developing this film for INTERPRETATIONS, we looked closely at the dialogue and felt the words on the page represented statements that were in a sense a call to action and persuasive in nature. In looking to utilize our strengths in action and comedy, we ultimately wanted a film where the dialogue would serve as both the catalyst for and the end to a funny and gritty action sequence. We decided that a rivalry between salesmen seemed to fit, and loved the interesting yet mundane setting of the furniture store as a great contrast to the intense action that would take place there.”
