Electric Chair

Thomas Edison, George Westinghouse, and the Invention of the Electric Chair (2002)

First execution by electric chair. William Kemmler, the first executed in the electric chair


In 1889, New York’s Electrical Execution Law, the first of its kind in the world, went into effect, and Edwin R. Davis, the Auburn Prison electrician, was commissioned to design an electric chair. Closely resembling the modern device, Davis’ chair was fitted with two electrodes, which were composed of metal disks held together with rubber and covered with a damp sponge. The electrodes were to be applied to the criminal’s head and back.

On August 6, 1890, William Kemmler became the first person to be sent to the chair. After he was strapped in, a charge of approximately 700 volts was delivered for only 17 seconds before the current failed. Although witnesses reported smelling burnt clothing and charred flesh, Kemmler was far from dead, and a second shock was prepared. The second charge was 1,030 volts and applied for about two minutes, whereupon smoke was observed coming from the head of Kemmler, who was clearly deceased. An autopsy showed that the electrode attached to his back had burned through to the spine.

Dr. Southwick applauded Kemmler’s execution with the declaration, “We live in a higher civilization from this day on,” while American inventor George Westinghouse, an innovator of the use of electricity, remarked, “They would have done better with an axe.”..”

JP MORGAN

J.P. Morgan – Biography and Life Story – 360p

British Secret Service Agent J. P. Morgan reformation.org
J.P. Morgan tried to keep the entire world in the DARK by sabotaging Tesla’s AC current!!
“…Morgan fought a ferocious war against AC current!!

Today, 3 phase alternating current electrifies the entire world. What most people don’t know is that J. P. Morgan and his crony Thomas Edison fought a ferocious battle against alternating current. It is called the War of the Currents, and lasted from 1885 to 1912…

Edison was clueless about the great benefits of AC.

In 1884, a young Serb immigrant named Nikola Tesla introduced him to his AC motor.

Edison and his boss Morgan completely rejected this revolutionary invention…

Tesla worked for many months and finally the problem was solved. Did Edison keep his promise and pay him for all his hard work?. . . absolutely not….Tesla quit the Edison Company in disgust:

For a paltry few thousand dollars they lost not only a man who would have saved them many times that amount each year, but they also lost an opportunity to obtain world control of the greatest and most profitable electrical invention ever made. (O’ Neill, Prodigal Genius, p. 58).
After quitting the Edison Company, Tesla had to work as a manual laborer for a year digging the streets of New York. This was the worst time in his life as a poor stranger in a strange land….He was befriended by the foreman of the work gang who persuaded him to form his own company.


The first application of current was botched and Kemmler did not die until the current was fired up a second time. When he was dead, the Morgan owned newspapers (New York Times) said that he had been “Westinghoused.”

Thank God that this desperate, deadly gambit by Morgan and Edison failed to turn people away from AC and eventually AC triumphed over DC and became the standard universal current…

J. P. Morgan owned the Titanic!!

Colonel John Jacob Astor IV was a close friend and financier of Tesla. Tesla lived at his hotel, the Waldorf Astoria, in New York City.

Tesla’s wireless transmission of electricity offered free electricity to the entire world. That was just too much for Morgan and the Bank of England. They wanted to control all forms of energy around the world.

..
Only months after Morgan’s death, the corrupt 3rd Bank of the “United States” was chartered; and in 1917 the United States was lured into war in Europe by MI6.

Life in Wilmerding
The Ideal Home Town

(From The Wilmerding News, September 2, 1904)loc.gov
‘..The first named is composed almost entirely of the more enlightened and prominent men employed by the great Westinghouse plant which forms the sole industrial basis of the place. Electricians, engineers, clerks, surveyors, heads of departments and mechanics are found in the ranks of this organization, a delightful fellowship pervading the whole. Many of the members are college graduates, coming from such standard schools as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cornell University, Yale, Harvard or University of Chicago. The features described, however, do not constitute the sole basis for the superiority of Wilmerding as an attractive residence quarter and as a town in general. The streets are excellently paved and kept as clean as can be and the business buildings erected of late bear the stamp of beauty as well as being perfectly adapted to their uses. The residence streets, particularly Marguerite Avenue, are beautiful with well kept shade trees and lawns and are lined with handsome, substantial houses. There are many artistic front yards in Wilmerding, thanks to the broad minded policy of the Westinghouse interests in offering annual prizes for the best examples of this kind. The company sets a signal example itself in the beautifying of the spacious grounds around the big office building. There are rows of magnificent plants of all kinds and beds of beautiful collas, all maintained in faultless condition by expert gardeners…”

NIKOLA TESLA

Nikola Tesla Biography

Nikola Tesla’s Religion and Political Views | HollowverseThe … hollowverse.com
“…Tesla was raised a Serbian Orthodox. His family was likely quite devout as his father was a priest in the church.1

As an adult, Tesla developed a nuanced view of religion and mankind’s place in the universe. You could say his personal philosophy was closer to Buddhist with its orientation toward unity and oneness. He often said things like:..

Tesla never fully bucked his Christian indoctrination and at the very least, he acknowledged it, saying:

The gift of mental power comes from God, Divine Being, and if we concentrate our minds on that truth, we become in tune with this great power. My Mother had taught me to seek all truth in the Bible; therefore I devoted the next few months to the study of this work.5..”

“..Overcomer is a movie that dares you to dig deeper into who you really are. Filled with vital reminders of our self-worth through Christ (see Ephesians 1 and 2), the Kendrick Brothers sixth release presents a terrific challenge of determining what truly defines us. This movie is certainly worth the price of admission. See it and take your friends.

Kurds From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
“..(Kurdish: کورد‎, Kurd) are an Iranian ethnic group native to a mountainous region of Western Asia known as Kurdistan, which spans southeastern Turkey, northwestern Iran, northern Iraq, and northern Syria.[27][28] There are also exclaves of Kurds in central Anatolia and Khorasan. Additionally, there are significant Kurdish diaspora communities in the cities of western Turkey, in particular Istanbul, while a Kurdish diaspora has developed in Western Europe, primarily in Germany. Numerically, the Kurds are estimated to number between 30 and 45 million.[2][29]..”

“..An employee who answered the phone at the gun range on Monday but would not give his name, said that he was not sure who had shot the video. But he said he recognized it as having been taken at the facility.

News organizations have various systems for vetting footage to verify authenticity. Claire Wardle, executive director of First Draft, an organization that fights online disinformation, said that this sort of situation should be “relatively easy” to avoid by using tools like reverse-image search.

“ABC has a really good team that does this work,” she wrote via email. “But I assume that on a Sunday, when they were probably stretched for staff, they failed to do the necessary verification checks, and under the pressure that comes with breaking news, this got through.”

What Does The Bible Say About Cremation? Date: September 11, 2018 By: Cremation Staff memorialcremations.com
The Bible does not specifically say whether cremation is approved or not. But it does give instances where the prophets in the Old Testament where buried versus burning their bodies after death (see Genesis 23:9, Deuteronomy 34:5-6, and Mark 6:29). As cremation or burial by fire was not called out in the Bible, each individual will need to make the decision for themselves based on their own faith, traditions, needs, and wishes.

Burial Benefits – Compensation – Veterans Benefits … benefits.va.gov

‘..Burial Benefits
Effective July 7, 2014: VA is changing its monetary burial benefits regulations to simplify the program and pay eligible survivors more quickly and efficiently. These regulations will authorize VA to pay, without a written application, most eligible surviving spouses basic monetary burial benefits at the maximum amount authorized in law through automated systems rather than reimbursing them for actual costs incurred.

Under the current regulations, VA pays for burial and funeral expenses on a reimbursement basis, which requires survivors to submit receipts for relatively small one-time payments that VA generally pays at the maximum amount permitted by law.
The new burial regulations will permit VA to pay, at a flat rate, burial and plot or interment allowances thereby enabling VA to automate payment of burial benefits to most eligible surviving spouses and more efficiently process other burial benefit claims.
The burial allowance for a non-service-connected death is $300, and $2,000 for a death connected to military service.
Benefit
Service-related Death
VA will pay up to $2,000 toward burial expenses for deaths on or after September 11, 2001, or up to $1,500 for deaths prior to September 11, 2001. If the Veteran is buried in a VA national cemetery, some or all of the cost of transporting the deceased may be reimbursed…”

Its name means “fragrant harbor” in Chinese, but it could also mean city of change. This is the story of Hong Kong.

Hong Xiuquan: The rebel who thought he was Jesus’s brother 18 October 2012 By Carrie Gracie BBC News, Shanghai bbc.com
“..Originally, all Hong Xiuquan wanted was to be part of the establishment. A village schoolteacher, he immersed himself in Confucian scholarship for the civil service exam, but he just kept failing.

“He fell into what I suppose was some kind of depressive fit and he had a vision,” says Jonathan Fenby, who has written a history of modern China.

“He imagined he’d gone up to the skies and there he had met a very tall man with a long beard and thick belt who had told him to come back to Earth and eradicate the demons on Earth.”

Some time later he was given a Chinese translation of the New Testament by a Christian missionary.

“He decided on reading that, that the man he had seen up in the sky was the Christian God, that he, Hong, was the brother of Jesus, and that the devils he had to exterminate on Earth were the Qing dynasty, which was then ruling China and of course was not Chinese.”..”


*see Now You Know: Who was/is Jesus…to “you”? goodnewseverybodycom.wordpress.com

“..The Europeans brought Christianity which, for Hong, was a convenient alternative to the Confucian creed which had rejected him.

“Seeing that everyone in high heavens scolded him, Confucius escaped down to earth with the leader of the demons,” goes an account of Hong’s vision, set down in writing by a follower.

“The heavenly father then sent the angels to chase after Confucius, tie him up and bring him back to the heavenly father who was exceedingly angry and instructed the angels to whip him. There was plenty of whipping and Confucius asked for mercy repeatedly.”

Famine and unemployment made peasants vulnerable to utopian thinkers
For the most part, China’s emperors had not bothered much with religions. Buddhism had become very popular at a time of upheaval in the 6th Century, but it appealed mostly to people at the bottom of society.

Christianity was one of the novelties which had come in with the colonial powers. They used gunboats to open China to trade, and shattered the image of order and invincibility cultivated by the Qing emperors. Vernacular translations of the Bible helped loosen the grip of the Confucian elites.

The Europeans saw Hong’s claim to be the brother of Christ as heresy, but he was not preaching for their benefit. He accompanied his spiritual message with a political one – a vision of equality and shared land ownership. This appealed to poor farmers, who were suffering from a sense of hopelessness, according to Guo Baogang of Dalton State college.

“Peasants have a very miserable life in the middle of the 19th Century,” he says.

“There’s a lot of famines and unemployment, most peasants have no land. So they’re very vulnerable to the utopian thinkers prescribing a perfect society as a way to escape from the existing society.”..”

Hong Kong Withdraws Extradition Bill After Leaked Audio

The people of Hong Kong are protesting in record-breaking numbers. Thanks to Dashlane for sponsoring us – Try Dashlane free here: http://www.dashlane.com/vox and get 10% off now with promo code VOX.

Correction at 7:48: The protester says “They are not doing this for themselves, but for the future of Hong Kong.”

Hundreds of thousands of Hongkongers have taken to the streets to protest a controversial extradition bill that could send Hong Kong residents to mainland China to be tried in court. Hong Kong’s Chief Executive, Carrie Lam, says the bill is meant to prevent Hong Kong from becoming a safe haven for fugitives. But its opponents fear that Hong Kong would be exposed to China’s flawed judicial system, which would lead to further erasure of the city’s judicial independence.

At first Lam was determined to move forward with the bill. But after a series of massive protests, she announced she would “indefinitely suspend” the bill. But protesters aren’t accepting the suspension, and have started demanding its complete withdrawal. They’ve also begun calling for Lam’s resignation.

But this rise in tensions is about a lot more than a bill. To understand why this bill hits a nerve with Hongkongers, it’s important to understand Hong Kong’s relationship with China – and exactly how the bill would tip the scales in China’s favor…”

Violence escalates as Hong Kong protests enter week 10 By Bethann FlynnAugust 13, 2019 mnnonline.org
“..Hong Kong (MNN) — As protests in Hong Kong hit the 10-week mark, some demonstrations have turned violent. Protests at the airport caused the city to ground all flights yesterday. What started as a cry of concern for extradition legislation has turned into a demonstration built upon years of frustrations…..

Tsui sees a tremendous opportunity for Asian Access to equip local believers in the marketplace. In Hong Kong, the future of the Church is unknown. But equipping the local Church to share the hope they have found in Christ could be a game-changer…

Pray for Hong Kong

Will you pray? Pray for the message of the Gospel to permeate this city, offer hope, and change hearts. Also, pray for Asian Access’s discipleship program and for it to bear fruit.

“Pray for justice, pray for peace, pray for reconciliation, the city, the community is very traumatized, and also divided, as I said. And I really want to especially lift-up praying for reconciliation, and upholding of justice,” Tsui asks.

‘Sing Hallelujah to the Lord’: Unlikely Anthem Provides Cover of Legitimacy to Hong Kong Protesters ReutersUpdated:June 19, 2019, 3:23 PM IST news18.com
Although only 10 per cent of Hong Kong people are Christians, the popular hymn provides a cover of legitimacy to those protesting against the extradition bill since religious gatherings can be held without a permit in the financial hub.
‘..Hong Kong: The Christian hymn “Sing Hallelujah to the Lord” has emerged as the unlikely anthem of Hong Kong’s protests against an extradition bill that have drawn millions of people onto the streets.

..”

Hong Kong protesters sing Christian hymn, tidy streets as they appeal for freedom

Hong Kong’s Christian protesters come armed with hymns

Published on Jul 22, 2019
Christians are playing an important role in Hong Kong’s ongoing protests, which aim to preserve the city’s freedoms and autonomy.

While the Chinese government has been accused of cracking down on religious freedom in the mainland, religious groups in the former British colony of Hong Kong are flourishing.

During the campaign against a now-dead extradition bill, Christians were among those taking to the streets.

Churches have become temporary support centers. The hymn ‘Sing Hallelujah to the Lord’ has become the unofficial protest anthem for Christians and non-Christians.

As clashes erupted between protesters and police over the weekend, some Christians tried to reduce tensions between the two sides by standing between them.

We talked to Christians during the most recent major protest. Watch our video to find out more.

Movie Reflection: “Lion King”

Just finished watching the Disney’s “new version” of “Lion King” late last night. We were just a few in the movie theater as it was a late night showing (9pm) 3D special . I was hoping to watch it back in Morris, but the weather was too nice out and had plans every evening last week.

I knew the plot of the movie already, but I was anticipating on how they did this “remake” in more “real life” animation version. I was very pleased how they made, it, but somehow got a “revelation” watching it “again”.

Here are just some that I personally got. When Simba was coaked by his uncle into “leaving” after he “supposedly” caused his father’s death. As “kids”, we all get curious..

He went to this “unfamiliar” place where he met Timon & Pumbaa. They tried to “mess up” with Simba’s mind about his true identity as a “lion” , so he won’t become their enemy in the “animal kingdom” or “chain of predators”.

Predator Hierarchy | Southern African Safaris | Classic Africa .classicafrica.com
“..As a rule, lions rule supreme, both by virtue of their sheer physical strength, and because of the co-ordinated power of the lion pride. Through cooperative hunting efforts, lions are essentially the only predators capable of taking prey up to the size of Cape buffalo, hippos, giraffe, and even sub-adult elephants. It is a myth that only females can hunt – male lions are in fact very successful hunters, but they avoid it as far as possible as they must conserve energy to defend their territories. Typically, females do most hunting but are displaced from the kill by pride males; once the males are satiated, the females will feed, and cubs eat last.

Next in line are Spotted hyenas. Still largely misunderstood, hyenas are not just scavengers but very successful hunters in their own right. Although they are also highly social, hyenas differ from lions in several respects. Firstly, they are dogs, and the hyena clan is dominated by females, who are physically larger and more aggressive than the males. Usually, hyena clans are not capable of driving a pride of lions from a kill, provided a mature male lion is present; if, however, no pride male is present and hyenas outnumber lionesses and sub-adults by a ratio of four to one, hyenas will carry the day..”

“…you see He (your father) lives in you…”

“Who are you?” – asked by Rafiki to Simba was a great question about “who do you identify with?” . During this scene, I started reflecting on who I identify with. I used to struggle with this generally. I wasn’t sure who I am . My name is Sal, but I struggled with my “racial cultural identification”. I grew up in a majority “white Caucasian” school and was conflicted internally with my “racial identification” (see blog above or personal testimony).

“… Simba, though, was a lion and a king. And it was living according to that identity that gave him true joy. We are, in Christ, little anointed ones, little christs. In Jesus, we are sons and daughters of God. That identity gives us true joy, and helps us know how we are to live our life. ..”

“..The Lion King Besides inspirations from William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, the story also has elements of the Osirian family myths of Ancient Egyptian mythology. In the Osirian myths, the king (Mufasa/Osiris) is killed by his jealous brother (Scar/Seth) and the rightful heir (Simba/Horus) is sent into exile as a boy. The murdered king visits and mentors his son in ghostly visits and when the heir comes of age, he returns to exact revenge on his father’s murderer.-http://m.imdb.com/title/tt0110357/trivia..”
