01) Ruby Ridge – PBS American Experience


“PBS American Experience is Documentary on American history consistently among the best shows on television. Episode is Ruby Ridge.”

I used to listen to Bo Gritz…back in the mid nineties, on shortwave radio…It was during that early transitional phase, I sometimes talk about…where I left organized religion, but still identified as Christian…

…I don’t know that I’d say I was searching for something different…so much as I was astonished and intrigued, at what all I was encountering [and finding it somewhat exotic, listening to native news/broadcasts, from other countries/communities I’d never before heard from].

Bo talked about Ruby Ridge, quite a bit…and I know it had a profound impact on him…

I’m glad it was a passing phase.

I had read somewhere, in passing, that Bo attempted suicide…Apparently, he survived.

Ruby Ridge is a prime example, of just how wrong a stupidly handled situation can go…

…And I don’t like so much to draw this comparison…But it’s been in the back of my mind, over the years…that this exacts sort of thing can happen to MAP’s, just as easily…

I never knew what to believe, about the racist allegations…But, realizing what had happened…primarily at the hands of the U.S. government…

…I mean…jesus…They killed a young kid…They killed a mother, who was holding her young infant…

…This case has always had a strong impact on me, where it came to understanding what some people in the U.S. government are willing to do…how savage and ruthless, they are willing to allow things to get…

I’ve never been a survivalist, nor terrorist minded [obviously]…But taking stock of how the U.S. government has abused, tormented and killed so many…even of it’s own citizens…

…It’s easier to understand, what has gone into creating home grown terrorists.

The U.S. government, itself, holds no small part of this blame.

Deep Space – The Largest Black Holes In The Universe…

01) Deep Space – The Largest Black Holes In The Universe


“A black hole is a region of the spacetime exhibiting such strong gravitational effects that nothing—not even particles and electromagnetic radiation such as light—can escape from inside it. The theory of general relativity predicts that a sufficiently compact mass can deform spacetime to form a black hole.[2][3] The boundary of the region from which no escape is possible is called the event horizon. Although the event horizon has an enormous effect on the fate and circumstances of an object crossing it, no locally detectable features appear to be observed. In many ways, a black hole acts like an ideal black body, as it reflects no light. Moreover, quantum field theory in curved spacetime predicts that event horizons emit Hawking radiation, with the same spectrum as a black body of a temperature inversely proportional to its mass. This temperature is on the order of billionths of a Kelvin for black holes of stellar mass, making it essentially impossible to observe.”

Physics – Are We Real?…

01) Physics – Are We Real?


“The holographic principle is a principle of string theories and a supposed property of quantum gravity that states that the description of a volume of space can be thought of as encoded on a lower-dimensional boundary to the region—preferably a light-like boundary like a gravitational horizon. First proposed by Gerard ‘t Hooft, it was given a precise string-theory interpretation by Leonard Susskind who combined his ideas with previous ones of ‘t Hooft and Charles Thorn. As pointed out by Raphael Bousso, Thorn observed in 1978 that string theory admits a lower-dimensional description in which gravity emerges from it in what would now be called a holographic way.”

DeepSpace – The Other Side Of A Black Hole…

01) DeepSpace – The Other Side Of A Black Hole


“What would happen if you entered a black hole? Conventional wisdom has it that you would be crushed by the immense gravity. According to a new theory, you might actually pass through the event horizon into a wormhole and end up in another part of the universe. To be fair, you would still be crushed. The exact fate of matter sucked into a black hole has long been the subject of debate, but the general view is that it all would be compressed into one point in space, the singularity. A rear exit would provide a place for matter to go instead of being completely smashed.

It’s a wild idea. But wormhole theory has taken weird turns before. The basic principle is that a black hole’s gravity is so strong that it bends space-time itself. Envision the universe as a sheet of paper. If some force folds part of that paper, then two non-continuous pieces of the paper touch. If an object on one part of the sheet crosses over the fold, when the sheet straightens out, that object finds itself still on the paper but distant from its starting point. Now, consider that the piece of paper contains both space and time. If both ends of the wormhole are close together, then in theory a traveler might end up at a different point in time.”

Universe: Beyond the Big Bang…

01) Universe – Beyond the Big Bang


“The Big Bang theory is the prevailing cosmological model for the universe from the earliest known periods through its subsequent large-scale evolution. The model describes how the universe expanded from a very high density and high-temperature state and offers a comprehensive explanation for a broad range of phenomena, including the abundance of light elements, the cosmic microwave background (CMB), large scale structure and Hubble’s Law. If the known laws of physics are extrapolated to the highest density regime, the result is a singularity which is typically associated with the Big Bang. Detailed measurements of the expansion rate of the universe place this moment at approximately 13.8 billion years ago, which is thus considered the age of the universe. After the initial expansion, the universe cooled sufficiently to allow the formation of subatomic particles and later simple atoms. Giant clouds of these primordial elements later coalesced through gravity in halos of dark matter, eventually forming the stars and galaxies visible today.”

SnagFilms: Children Underground [2001]…

01) Children Underground

“Edet Belzberg’s Academy Award-nominated directorial debut, CHILDREN UNDERGROUND follows a group of homeless children living in a train station in Bucharest, Romania. Raw and insightful, this acclaimed documentary personalizes the often dangerous and always chaotic and uncertain world of youngsters casually abandoned by their families and society at large. It also subtlety illustrates the legacy of former Communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. Winner of a Sundance Film Festival’s Special Jury Prize, the International Documentary Association’s Documentary Award, and the Gotham Awards’ Documentary Achievement Prize.”

Picture quality is bad…but it’s a good documentary.

No More “Age Verification” Free Video Embedding…

Date: March 23, 2017

I’ve stopped using the embedding code, that sidesteps the YouTube age verification.

Potentially, you’ve noticed that a lot of the embedded videos from YouTube are all giving a playback error?

For years, I’ve used the embedding code that is supposed to let anyone watch a video outright, without worrying about logging into YouTube to verify their age…This was done as a courtesy to my visitors.

As always…YouTube has recently made changes to their website…and from the looks of it, they’ve disabled this method of embedding…whether intentional, or not.

This means for me, that I have already dropped the usage of it…To be honest, it was annoying having to deal with a few things about it, anyway…I’m glad to be done with it.

But, now a ton of embedded videos won’t play on this blog…Fortunately, this is why I’ve always included a direct link to the YouTube video page…So, there should be no real issue…Just click on the link…Watch it on YouTube.

All the best…

– Steve
