ENGLAND OUT. WORLD CUP 2018 REVIEW
Once in Trump’s lifetime… https://www.patreon.com/swedemason
I did not watch the Joshua vs Takam fight live but I notice many of the people that did are again complaining about the low quality PPV broadcast from Sky Sports Box Office. Sky Sports removed the much of the under card from the PPV view event to make room to talk about and hype up Anthony Joshua. I am a bit of a boxing fanatic, I have always loved boxing in fact its the ONLY sport that interests me at all and it has since I was a kid. I watch a lot of boxing and unlike most of the casual boxing fans watching this fight I knew Carlos Takam was not an easy fight. In fact I almost write a blog predicting a huge upset but I never got around to it.
I watched the fight the next day on Daily motion and I honestly believe Takam was completely robbed of a chance to test Joshua’s blatantly weak stamina. There is no doubt that Takam was losing the fight on points but when boxing commentators tell us he had no chance, thats bullshit! This is Heavyweight boxing George Foreman was well behind when knocked out Michael Moorer, Ross Purity Knocked out an exhausted Wladimir Klitschko. The reason I love boxing is anything can happen especially in the heavyweight division.
Anthony Joshua was lucky, I’m not saying he would have lost but I believe those last two rounds were going to be the most interesting part of the fight until the referee robbed Takam of his chance of finishing the fight and the audience the chance of witnessing what could have been the most interesting six minutes of Anthony Joshua’s career so far.
Anthony Joshua is the golden boy of British boxing at the moment and a cash cow, they did not want to see the cash cow get slaughtered.
I have stated from day one that I believe AJ is overrated, I believe an in shape Tyson Fury will out box him, AJ has a punchers chance and thats it.
Every big victory AJ has on his record is questionable! Dillian Whyte rocked him before being Knocked out but how good is Dillian Whyte? Wladimir Klitschko looked better against AJ than he had looked for years is that because Wladimir Klitschko was better prepared to fight AJ or simply because AJ allowed him to look better?
Sky Sports commentary was terrible, how many times did Carl Froch insist and tell the audience AJ had won every round? I think there were at least two or maybe even three rounds that you could have given to Takam, its professional boxing and body shots score points.
That’s two early stoppages in a row in AJ fights (the Klitschko stoppage was early I thought considering he was world champion for ten years and one of the biggest punchers in the history of boxing.) How much would AJ have had left after that onslaught against Klitschko? How much would he have had left for the last two rounds against Takam? Holyfield was out on his feet in round ten against Riddick Bowe before nearly knocking the much bigger man out.
Boxing and politics always seem to get their wires crossed. From Jack Johnson and the Great White Hope, Joe Louis fighting “the racist Nazi” Max Schmeling when Joe Louis himself was seen as nothing more than a second class citizen. Muhammad Ali, Sonny Liston, Mike Tyson and many other boxers have like Jack Johnson ended up having to fight the ruling elite outside the boxing ring as well as their opponents inside the ring.
Tyson Fury is the latest example of a heavyweight champion that is universally hated for his controversial but honest and very true take on modern day society. Like nearly all the great heavyweights Tyson Fury comes from oppression, he is seen by many (not me) as a second class citizen. He said himself that he would always be seen as “just a dirty gypo” and unfortunately its true. Like Muhammad Ali, Jack Johnson, Sonny Liston and too many others Tyson Fury is fighting ignorance, the media and the establishment as well as the brainwashed.
I watched Wladimir Klitschko vs. Tyson Fury with HBO’s and Sky Sports commentary. HBO hate to give Tyson Fury any credit whatsoever, Jim Lampley repeatedly puts the fight down to a poor performance from Wladimir Klitschko. They blamed the age of Wladimir Klitschko who was 4o. Only Roy Jones Jnr gave credit to Fury as he kept informing Jim Lampley that Tyson Fury was confusing Wladimir Klitschko with movement and faints.
Sky Sport was not as blatantly anti Tyson Fury as HBO but they were also blaming the “poor performance” and “age” of Wladimir Klitschko. Wladimir Klitschko proved in his next fight that age had very little to do with anything as he put on a fine performance and nearly knocked out the golden boy of British Boxing at the moment Anthony Joshua.
If the right boxer was to naturalize and confuse Wladimir Klitschko the way that Tyson Fury did they would have received credit and hype from the mainstream media. Tyson Fury is not the right boxer, casual boxing rule the market and they want knockouts and blood but the real art of boxing has always been hit without getting hit and that is what Tyson Fury managed to do against Klitschko.
Like in the past with Muhammad Ali and Jack Johnson and others the establishment are using the media to spread hate for the exact same reasons they always do.
Somebody has managed to fight their way against the odds out of poverty and oppression and gained a following. All Tyson Fury does is say what a million people already believe the only difference is when Tyson Fury says it it gets heard.
How dare some know nothing middle class wannabe upper class muppet that has never done a proper days work in their lives complain because a message they don’t like and are not used to hearing gets heard. The problem is not Tyson Fury, Gypsies or the poor speaking out the problem is the establishment.
The reason so many people in Britain are attacking Tyson Fury is much the same reason white America turned on Muhammad Ali, Jack Johnson, Sonny Liston and even Mike Tyson. That reason is because they have a feeling of superiority, they are ignorant, racists that live in cloud cuckoo land and they fear anybody that is different.
I believe that in this time of sell outs and corporate whores Tyson Fury should be applauded for having the balls to say what many of us know. I’m not saying I agree with EVERYTHING he says but I agree with him much more than I agree with the people that think they have the right to silence him.
I have noticed some pretty crazy shit lately on the Internet. Facebook removing posts because “they look like spam,” video files that I was distributing as free downloads have been removed from my website, this week I have lost about 20 subscribers on YouTube and even a whole post was removed from my website. WTF is going on? It seems to me that the government or somebody is blatantly and desperately manipulating the Internet and the truthers is who they are after. They have lost the argument so now they will silence it.
YouTube are literally silencing me as at least eight of my old videos that have been on YouTube for years undisturbed have this year been muted due to a copyright claim on the background music. Even music that is in the public domain and in one case was literally hundreds of years old (George Handel) has lead to Sony and WMG claiming ownership of the music and therefore my whole video.
They first chose to profit from it and then simply remove it after all they can’t be seen profiting from “extremism.” I think the Internet is in desperate need for a decentralized video platform that uses blockchain technology. Google seem desperate to destroy an idea with YouTube and Youtubers that have dedicated years of their lives to their work are being driven away (intentionally.) The trouble is for them (me included) is we don’t really have anywhere to go and when we find something that looks like it could be promising (TruTube, Blip TV, Megavideo, Videoweed, Dailymotion) they either turn out to be shit or stop working.
They are literally attacking us from all angles in an attempt to financially starve the truth.

With the general election coming up I have been sooo busy blogging politics and reasons we should vote out the Conservative party I nearly forgot to write this blog. On April 29, 2017 Wembley Stadium witnessed one of the Greatest heavyweight fights in recent years, Anthony Joshua vs. Wladimir Klitschko. Both fighters were knocked down and nearly knocked out on multiple occasions, they fought their hearts out. For 41 years old Wladimir Klitschko was impressive, its the first time he has looked that impressive for years, despite two of the judges having Joshua winning by the end of the tenth I believe Klitschko was winning at that stage of the fight, as usual I’m not sure the judges were watching the same fight I was watching! He was out boxing Joshua through most of the fight, for me. He also looked quicker and less tired than Joshua who looked spent at the end of the 5th and 6th rounds.
Anthony Joshua proved he is a warrior and he would have a chance against any heavyweight that he steps in to the ring with, but I believe that if Tyson Fury trains and gets himself back to something like he was when he beat Klitschko in 2015, Tyson Fury beats Anthony Joshua!
As good as Joshua is (and he is great) I believe that Tyson Fury’s performance against Klitschko was much better than Anthony Joshua’s! It definitely was not a better fight but over the coarse of the fight Klitschko barely hit Fury with a clean punch. Tyson Fury did not receive the credit he deserves for his boxing masterclass of Klitschko, Klitschko looked confused and slow when he fought Fury, whereas he looked much faster than Anthony Joshua.
It’s funny how racism has changed because if Tyson Fury was not a gypsy (with outlandish ideas, he knows the truth) I am pretty sure the British media would have been hyping him up like they are hyping Anthony Joshua up now.
I believe the best Tyson Fury (if he can recapture it) out boxes and maybe even exposes Anthony Joshua. I’m not saying Anthony Joshua has no chance against Tyson Fury because he will always have a punchers chance against anybody he ever fights. But at six foot nine Tyson Fury is fast, powerful and skillful and if he fights like he did against Klitschko and does not get sucked in to a slug feast I can’t see how Joshua can beat him (other than landing one big punch and knocking him out.)
Early prediction Tyson Fury wins a pretty one sided points decision.

SMALL CLIP FROM FUCK THE SYSTEM 3 BY WOLVOMAN80
England are out of the UEFA cup after being humiliated against Iceland (well done Iceland, if I had to listen to the first verse of God save the Queen again I might have gone insane.) I don’t usually blog Football as I do not follow it anymore and therefore my Football knowledge is not ever going to get the job as England manager. I spent much of my youth following England passionately and the story never really changes England expects England fails. England have not played well in a major competition since 1996 yet deluded England fans and TV “experts” are blaming Roy Hodgson the 68 year old man that is paid to take the blame.
Fabio Capello (proven world class manager), Sven Goran Erikson (proven world class manager), Glen Hoddle, Steve McClaren, Kevin Keegan and others have tried and failed to bring success to England. Has anybody ever considered maybe our players are just not good enough! Ian Wright insisted money was not responsible for England and their recent shameful displays, I think he is wrong.
“We got some of the best players in the world” the desperate England fans keep telling me, I don’t believe them. If our players are so good how come they managed just one win in four games? Its not like they were in a “group of death” Russia, Slovakia, Wales and Iceland are not exactly football giants.
Ian Wright and Peter Crouch insisted that the English players do care about the game and for the few weeks before the competition and during the competitions they do care and I believe they do give it 100%, the trouble is life is too easy for these people most are millionaires before being established proven players. An easy life will make you soft, they can now all go on a lovely vaccination with their lovely WAGS. Have you seen Dele Alli’s girlfriend? who would give a fuck about football if she was at home waiting for you? NOT ME! If she was my girlfriend you would probably never see or hear of me again, my YouTube channel and website would slowly fade into the dead part of YouTube and Google and my (already not the most commercially successful business) would be dead.
The huge blow of losing to Iceland will be cushioned by the fact the England players will now get a couple of weeks extra holidays doing whatever they want and going anywhere they want.
The easy living standards of our youth has also contributed, half them are overweight and technology has turned us in to a nation of weaklings. If there was a FIFA world cup on the PS4 or Xbox one we would win that hands down, but unfortunately for England playing computer games, smart phones, tablets and watching TV will not make a nation of sporting greats, it creates a nation of spoilt couch potatoes.
The “TV experts” claim if Roy Hodgson took this player or that player it would have been different, if he played this system, that system, wingers, holding midfielders, sweepers it would have been different. The truth is if England were anywhere near as good as we genuinely believe we are it would have been different, unfortunately for England fans and much to the amusement of me they are shit. Overpaid, over hyped and average at best and they will not improve until we admit there is a fundamental flaw in the English game and that flaw is money and greed. How many advertisements show England players cashing in on ads for corporations? Maybe if they spent less time acting like little corporate puppets, trying to sell shit to us as if they need the money and more time playing football they would improve.
FUCK FOOTBALL here’s Dele Alli’s girlfriend!
Recently Tyson Fury shocked the boxing world by beating Wladimir Klitschko on points in Germany, usually the media would be jumping on the new British champion band wagon in Tyson Fury’s case they are not! In fact Tyson Fury is being attacked on a daily basis, Tyson Fury should remember he’s a role model when he opens his mouth demandsVerbal sewage poured out of Fury’s big mouth claims Colin Hart of the worst sewage in Britain, the Sun. Attacks also come from the disgusting warmongering and racist Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail and the Daily Mirror called him a heavyweight idiot. These attacks are as usual when it comes to mainstream media childish and disrespectful, the attacks are being aimed at Tyson Fury because of his religious and political views. As usual anybody that does not think the way that the media help to program us to think is a lunatic and an idiot.
I actually like Tyson Fury and FUCK the mainstream media, I’m not saying that I agree with everything he says but I do believe he is free to say whatever he wants, whether he is heavyweight champion or not! Does Alice Arnold from the Guardian demand that certain pop musicians should remember they are role models before sexing up and dumbing down their music? As always these misguided do gooders like Alice Arnold completely miss the point, Tyson Fury is a born fighter with gypsy blood, of coarse he ain’t going to be 100% politically correct to well off, middle class snobs like you! That don’t mean he is anymore hate filled than you, in fact in my experience the middle classes can be the most hate filled, closet racists out there.
The mainstream media is among the most hypercritical, judgmental, psychopathic, racist, hate spewed garbage in the country. They are highly hate filled and racist yet they spend much of their time accusing people of being hate filled and racist. Tyson Fury is a bully and a bigot who even lacks the courage of his convictions… there can be no excuses for his malicious views claims OLIVER HOLT FOR THE DAILY MAIL (Sunday Edition.)
The Daily Mail like all mainstream media in Britain hate and fear everything and everyone that is slightly different to them, they promote hate, racism and fear and they have the nerve to suggest Tyson Fury should remember he is a role model?
The Paris terrorist attacks on the evening of 13th November 2015 are tragic and as usual the innocent pay, 129 people lost their lives in this viscous attack. Many people in France, USA, Germany, UK and throughout Europe are claiming to stand shoulder to shoulder against such attacks and this is good news. I believe that terrorism and violence is never the answer and if we the people really want to stand shoulder to shoulder against terrorism we should stand shoulder to shoulder against all terrorism. Whether it be terror orchestrated by Israel, USA, UK, NATO or the United Nations, when reading news reports on this attack I cannot help but notice the scaremongering and hate spreading tactics the media are using. The media present terrorism as a problem that is exclusive to Islam but the facts and the stats clearly show that is not the case.
All war is terrorism so why do the people not stand shoulder to shoulder with the victims of terrorism in Palestine or in Iraq after our armies murdered over one million people in Iraq according to some reports? Or Libya? The media (even the Guardian so called left wing media) completely dismiss the possibility that a poor and overly aggressive foreign policy is the main cause of terrorism, how can they be so certain of this? At times like this it is important that people do not let the propaganda filled mainstream media influence the way we think. The attackers should obviously be treated the same as any murderers are treated but we should not hold the whole of the Islamic world responsible for the actions of a few.
I fear this attack could be used to fight more unjust wars and as a method to take a little more freedom and power from the people. Political censorship of the internet is already destroying freedom of speech and freedom of expression, it removes one side of the story and leaves the people in the dark reading war mongering propaganda. When the people are reading this war mongering corporate propaganda they believe they are well informed but in fact they are not and when the public are not well informed on current foreign affairs, they cannot make well informed decisions. If we let our media guild us they will guild us straight in to another meaningless war that will kill innocent people, cost a fortune and still fail to prevent terrorism in fact it would feed terrorism!
The problem I see is our (Western) governments have been fighting and backing wars and terrorism for many years now but as soon as an attack comes back; they suddenly become outraged by terrorism and violence despite the fact terrorism, violence and exploitation has been much of their own foreign policy.
Nikola Tesla (Serbian Cyrillic: Никола Тесла; 10 July 1856 – 7 January 1943) was a Serbian American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system. Tesla gained experience in telephony and electrical engineering before emigrating to the United States in 1884 to work for Thomas Edison in New York City. He soon struck out on his own with financial backers, setting up laboratories and companies to develop a range of electrical devices. His patented AC induction motor and transformer were licensed by George Westinghouse, who also hired Tesla for a short time as a consultant. His work in the formative years of electric power development was involved in a corporate alternating current/direct current “War of Currents” as well as various patent battles. Tesla went on to pursue his ideas of wireless lighting and electricity distribution in his high-voltage, high-frequency power experiments in New York and Colorado Springs, and made early (1893) pronouncements on the possibility of wireless communication with his devices. He tried to put these ideas to practical use in his ill-fated attempt at intercontinental wireless transmission, which was his unfinished Wardenclyffe Tower project. In his lab he also conducted a range of experiments with mechanical oscillators/generators, electrical discharge tubes, and early X-ray imaging. He also built a wireless controlled boat, one of the first ever exhibited. Tesla was renowned for his achievements and showmanship, eventually earning him a reputation in popular culture as an archetypal “mad scientist”. His patents earned him a considerable amount of money, much of which was used to finance his own projects with varying degrees of success.:121,154 He lived most of his life in a series of New York hotels, through his retirement. He died on 7 January 1943. His work fell into relative obscurity after his death, but in 1960 the General Conference on Weights and Measures named the SI unit of magnetic flux density the tesla in his honor. There has been a resurgence in interest in Tesla in popular culture since the 1990s.
AC and the induction motor Drawing from U.S. Patent 381,968, illustrating principle of Tesla’s alternating current induction motor In late 1886 Tesla met Alfred S. Brown, a Western Union superintendent, and New York attorney Charles F. Peck. The two men were experienced in setting up companies and promoting inventions and patents for financial gain. Based on Tesla’s patents and other ideas they agreed to back him financially and handle his patents. Together in April 1887 they formed the Tesla Electric Company with an agreement that profits from generated patents would go 1/3 to Tesla, 1/3 to Peck and Brown, and 1/3 to fund development. They set up a laboratory for Tesla at 89 Liberty Street in Manhattan where he worked on improving and developing new types of electric motors, generators and other devices. One of the things Tesla developed at that laboratory in 1887 was an induction motor that ran on alternating current, a power system format that was starting to be built in Europe and the US because of its advantages in long distance high voltage transmission. The motor used polyphase current which generated a rotating magnetic field to turn the motor (a principle Tesla claimed to have conceived of in 1882). This innovative electric motor, patented in May 1888, was a simple self-starting design that did not need a commutator, thus avoiding sparking and the high maintenance of constantly servicing and replacing mechanical brushes. In 1888, the editor of Electrical World magazine, Thomas Commerford Martin (a friend and publicist), arranged for Tesla to demonstrate his alternating current system, including his induction motor, at the American Institute of Electrical Engineers (now IEEE). Engineers working for the Westinghouse Electric & Manufacturing Company reported to George Westinghouse that Tesla had a viable AC motor and related power system—something to which Westinghouse had been trying to secure patents. Westinghouse looked into getting a patent on a similar commutatorless rotating magnetic field based induction motor presented in a paper in March 1888 by the Italian physicist Galileo Ferraris but decided Tesla’s patent would probably control the market. Nikola Tesla’s AC dynamo-electric machine (AC Electric generator) in an 1888 U.S. Patent 390,721 In July 1888, Brown and Peck negotiated a licensing deal with George Westinghouse for Tesla’s polyphase induction motor and transformer designs for $60,000 in cash and stock and a royalty of $2.50 per AC horsepower produced by each motor. Westinghouse also hired Tesla for one year for the large fee of $2,000 ($52,700 in today’s dollars) per month to be a consultant at the Westinghouse Electric & Manufacturing Company’s Pittsburgh labs. During that year, Tesla worked in Pittsburgh, helping to create an alternating current system to power the city’s streetcars. He found the time there frustrating because of conflicts between him and the other Westinghouse engineers over how best to implement AC power. Between them, they settled on a 60-cycle AC current system Tesla proposed (to match the working frequency of Tesla’s motor), although they soon found that, since Tesla’s induction motor could only run at a constant speed, it would not work for street cars. They ended up using a DC traction motor instead. War of Currents Tesla’s demonstration of his induction motor and Westinghouse’s subsequent licensing of the patent, both in 1888, put Tesla firmly on the “AC” side of the so-called “War of Currents,” an electrical distribution battle being waged between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse that had been simmering since Westinghouse’s first AC system in 1886 and had reached the point of all out warfare by 1888. This started out as a competition between rival lighting systems with Edison holding all the patents for DC and the incandescent light and Westinghouse using his own patented AC system to power arc lights as well as incandescent lamps of a slightly different design to get around the Edison patent. The acquisition of a feasible AC motor gave Westinghouse a key patent in building a completely integrated AC system, but the financial strain of buying up patents and hiring the engineers needed to build it meant development of Tesla’s motor had to be put on hold for a while. The competition resulted in Edison Machine Works pursuing AC development in 1890 and by 1892 Thomas Edison was no longer in control of his own company, which was consolidated into the conglomerate General Electric and converting to an AC delivery system at that point. “Tesla Polyphase System” A Westinghouse display of the “Tesla Polyphase System” at Chicago’s 1893 Columbian Exposition At the beginning of 1893 Westinghouse engineer Benjamin Lamme had made great progress developing an efficient version of Tesla’s induction motor and Westinghouse Electric started branding their complete polyphase phase AC system as the “Tesla Polyphase System”, noting how they believed Tesla’s patents gave them patent priority over other AC systems. In 1893, George Westinghouse won the bid to light the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago with alternating current, beating out a General Electric bid by one million dollars. This World’s Fair devoted a building to electrical exhibits. It was a key event in the history of AC power, as Westinghouse demonstrated the safety, reliability, and efficiency of a fully integrated alternating current system to the American public. At the Columbian Exposition, under a banner announcing the “Tesla Polyphase System”, Tesla demonstrated a series of electrical effects previously performed throughout America and Europe,:76 included using high-voltage, high-frequency alternating current to light a wireless gas-discharge lamp.:79 An observer noted: Within the room was suspended two hard-rubber plates covered with tin foil. These were about fifteen feet apart, and served as terminals of the wires leading from the transformers. When the current was turned on, the lamps or tubes, which had no wires connected to them, but lay on a table between the suspended plates, or which might be held in the hand in almost any part of the room, were made luminous. These were the same experiments and the same apparatus shown by Tesla in London about two years previous, “where they produced so much wonder and astonishment”. Tesla also explained the principles of the rotating magnetic field in an induction motor by demonstrating how to make a copper egg stand on end using a device he constructed known as the Egg of Columbus. Niagara and patents In 1893 Richard Dean Adams, who headed up the Niagara Falls Cataract Construction Company sought Tesla’s opinion on what system would be best to transmit power generated at the falls. Over several years there had been an off again – on again series of proposals and open competitions on how best to utilize power generated by the falls with many systems being proposed by several US and European companies including two phase and three phase AC, high voltage DC, and even compressed air. Adams pumped Tesla for information about the current state of all the competing systems. Tesla advised Adams that a two phased system would be the most reliable, and that there was a Westinghouse system to light incandescent bulbs using two phase alternating current. Based on Tesla’s advice and Westinghouse’s demonstration that they could build a complete AC system at the Colombian Exposition, a contract for building a two phase AC generating system at the Niagara Falls was awarded to Westinghouse Electric. A further contract to build the AC distribution system was awarded to General Electric. The mid 1890s saw the conglomerate General Electric, backed by financier J. P. Morgan, involved in take over attempts and patent battles with Westinghouse Electric. Although a patent sharing agreement was signed between the two companies in 1896 Westinghouse was still cash strapped from the financial warfare. To secure further loans Westinghouse was forced to revisit Tesla’s AC patent, which bankers considered a financial strain on the company (at that point Westinghouse had paid out an estimated $200,000 in licenses and royalties to Tesla, Brown, and Peck). In 1897, Westinghouse explained his financial difficulties to Tesla in stark terms, saying that if things continue the way they were he would no longer be in control of Westinghouse Electric and Tesla would have to “deal with the bankers” to try to collect future royalties. Westinghouse convinced Tesla to release his company from the licensing agreement over Tesla’s AC patents in exchange for Westinghouse Electric purchasing the patents for a lump sum payment of $216,000; this provided Westinghouse a break from what, due to alternating current’s rapid gain in popularity, had turned out to be an overly generous $2.50 per AC horsepower royalty. American citizenship On 30 July 1891, at the age of 35, Tesla became a naturalized citizen of the United States, and established his South Fifth Avenue laboratory, and later another at 46 E. Houston Street, in New York. He lit electric lamps wirelessly at both locations, demonstrating the potential of wireless power transmission. In the same year, he patented the Tesla coil. Tesla served as vice president of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, the forerunner (along with the Institute of Radio Engineers) of the modern-day IEEE, from 1892 to 1894. X-ray experimentation X-ray of a hand, taken by Tesla Starting in 1894, Tesla began investigating what he referred to as radiant energy of “invisible” kinds after he had noticed damaged film in his laboratory in previous experiments (later identified as “Roentgen rays” or “X-Rays”). His early experiments were with Crookes tubes, a cold cathode electrical discharge tube. Soon after, much of Tesla’s early research—hundreds of invention models, plans, notes, laboratory data, tools, photographs, valued at $50,000—was lost in the 5th Avenue laboratory fire of March 1895. Tesla is quoted by The New York Times as saying, “I am in too much grief to talk. What can I say?” Tesla may have inadvertently captured an X-ray image (predating Wilhelm Röntgen’s December 1895 announcement of the discovery of x-rays by a few weeks) when he tried to photograph Mark Twain illuminated by a Geissler tube, an earlier type of gas discharge tube. The only thing captured in the image was the metal locking screw on the camera lens.:134 In March 1896, after hearing of Wilhelm Röntgen’s discovery of X-ray and X-ray imaging (radiography), Tesla proceeded to do his own experiments in X-ray imaging, developing a high energy single terminal vacuum tube of his own design that had no target electrode and that worked from the output of the Tesla Coil (the modern term for the phenomenon produced by this device is bremsstrahlung or braking radiation). In his research, Tesla devised several experimental setups to produce X-rays. Tesla held that, with his circuits, the “instrument will … enable one to generate Roentgen rays of much greater power than obtainable with ordinary apparatus.” Tesla noted the hazards of working with his circuit and single-node X-ray-producing devices. In his many notes on the early investigation of this phenomenon, he attributed the skin damage to various causes. He believed early on that damage to the skin was not caused by the Roentgen rays, but by the ozone generated in contact with the skin, and to a lesser extent, by nitrous acid. Tesla incorrectly believed that X-rays were longitudinal waves, such as those produced in waves in plasma. These plasma waves can occur in force-free magnetic fields. On 11 July 1934, the New York Herald Tribune published an article on Tesla, in which he recalled an event that would occasionally take place while experimenting with his single-electrode vacuum tubes; a minute particle would break off the cathode, pass out of the tube, and physically strike him. “Tesla said he could feel a sharp stinging pain where it entered his body, and again at the place where it passed out.” In comparing these particles with the bits of metal projected by his “electric gun,” Tesla said, “The particles in the beam of force … will travel much faster than such particles … and they will travel in concentrations.” Radio Wireless transmission of power and energy demonstration during his 1891 lecture on high frequency and potential Tesla’s theories on the possibility of the transmission by radio waves go back as far as lectures and demonstrations in 1893 in St. Louis, Missouri, the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and the National Electric Light Association. Tesla’s demonstrations and principles were written about widely through various media outlets. Many devices such as the Tesla Coil were used in the further development of radio. In 1898, Tesla demonstrated a radio-controlled boat (U.S. Patent 613,809 —Method of an Apparatus for Controlling Mechanism of Moving Vehicle or Vehicles). Tesla’s radio wave experiments in 1896 were conducted in Gerlach Hotel (later renamed The Radio Wave building), where he resided. In 1898, Tesla demonstrated a radio-controlled boat—which he dubbed “teleautomaton”—to the public during an electrical exhibition at Madison Square Garden. The crowd that witnessed the demonstration made outrageous claims about the workings of the boat, such as magic, telepathy, and being piloted by a trained monkey hidden inside. Tesla tried to sell his idea to the U.S. military as a type of radio-controlled torpedo, but they showed little interest. Remote radio control remained a novelty until World War I and afterward, when a number of countries used it in military programs. Tesla took the opportunity to further demonstrate “Teleautomatics” in an address to a meeting of the Commercial Club in Chicago, while he was travelling to Colorado Springs, on 13 May 1899. In 1900, Tesla was granted patents for a “system of transmitting electrical energy” and “an electrical transmitter.” When Guglielmo Marconi made his famous first-ever transatlantic radio transmission in 1901, Tesla quipped that it was done with 17 Tesla patents, though there is little to support this claim. This was the beginning of years of patent battles over radio with Tesla’s patents being upheld in 1903, followed by a reverse decision in favor of Marconi in 1904. In 1943, a Supreme Court of the United States decision restored the prior patents of Tesla, Oliver Lodge, and John Stone. The court declared that their decision had no bearing on Marconi’s claim as the first to achieve radio transmission, just that since Marconi’s claim to certain patents were questionable, he could not claim infringement on those same patents (there are claims the high court was trying to nullify a World War I claim against the U.S. government by the Marconi Company via simply restoring Tesla’s prior patent).

The 7-metre (23 ft) long arcs were not part of the normal operation and were produced for effect by rapidly cycling the power switch Another Alley photograph at Colorado Springs documenting 3 lights receiving power by means of electrodynamic induction from an oscillator 60 feet (18 m) from the bulbs (placed on the ground outside the building to demonstrate they had no connection to the power source) On 17 May 1899, Tesla moved to Colorado Springs, where he would have room for his high-voltage, high-frequency experiments; his lab was located near Foote Ave. and Kiowa St. He chose this location because the polyphase alternating current power distribution system had been introduced there and he had associates who were willing to give him all the power he needed without charging for it. Upon his arrival, he told reporters that he was conducting wireless telegraphy experiments, transmitting signals from Pikes Peak to Paris. The 1978 book Colorado Springs Notes, 1899–1900 contains descriptions of Tesla’s experiments. On 15 June 1899, Tesla performed his first experiments at his Colorado Springs lab; he recorded his initial spark length at five inches long, but very thick and noisy. Tesla investigated atmospheric electricity, observing lightning signals via his receivers. Tesla stated that he observed stationary waves during this time. The great distances and the nature of what Tesla was detecting from lightning storms confirmed his belief that the earth had a resonant frequency. He produced artificial lightning (with discharges consisting of millions of volts and up to 135 feet long). Thunder from the released energy was heard 15 miles away in Cripple Creek, Colorado. People walking along the street observed sparks jumping between their feet and the ground. Sparks sprang from water line taps when touched. Light bulbs within 100 feet of the lab glowed even when turned off. Horses in a livery stable bolted from their stalls after receiving shocks through their metal shoes. Butterflies were electrified, swirling in circles with blue halos of St. Elmo’s fire around their wings. While experimenting, Tesla inadvertently faulted a power station generator, causing a power outage. In August 1917, Tesla explained what had happened in The Electrical Experimenter: “As an example of what has been done with several hundred kilowatts of high frequency energy liberated, it was found that the dynamos in a power house six miles away were repeatedly burned out, due to the powerful high frequency currents set up in them, and which caused heavy sparks to jump through the windings and destroy the insulation!” An Alley Colorado Springs photo of a grounded tuned coil in resonance with a transmitter illuminates a light near the bottom of the picture. Tesla did not disclose how far away the transmitter was. During his time at his lab, Tesla observed unusual signals from his receiver which he concluded may be communications from another planet. He mentioned them in a letter to reporter Julian Hawthorne at the Philadelphia North American on 8 December 1899 and in a December 1900 letter about possible discoveries in the new century to the Red Cross Society where he referred to messages “from another world” that read “1… 2… 3…”. Reporters treated it as a sensational story and jumped to the conclusion Tesla was hearing signals from Mars. He expanded on the signals he heard in a 9 February 1901 Collier’s Weekly article “Talking With Planets” where he said it had not been immediately apparent to him that he was hearing “intelligently controlled signals” and that the signals could come from Mars, Venus, or other planets. It has been hypothesized that he may have intercepted Marconi’s European experiments in July 1899—Marconi may have transmitted the letter S (dot/dot/dot) in a naval demonstration, the same three impulses that Tesla hinted at hearing in Colorado—or signals from another experimenter in wireless transmission. In 1899, John Jacob Astor IV invested $100,000 for Tesla to further develop and produce a new lighting system. Instead, Tesla used the money to fund his Colorado Springs experiments. On 7 January 1900, Tesla left Colorado Springs. His lab was torn down in 1904, and its contents were sold two years later to satisfy a debt. The Colorado experiments had prepared Tesla for the establishment of the trans-Atlantic wireless telecommunications facility known as Wardenclyffe near Shoreham, Long Island. Wardenclyffe years (1900–1917) Main article: Wardenclyffe Tower Tesla Ready for Business – 7 August 1901 New-York tribune article The Tesla coil wireless transmitter U.S. Patent 1,119,732 Tesla’s Wardenclyffe plant on Long Island in 1904. From this facility, Tesla hoped to demonstrate wireless transmission of electrical energy across the Atlantic. In 1900, with $150,000 ($4,266,600 in today’s dollars; 51% from J. Pierpont Morgan), Tesla began planning the Wardenclyffe Tower facility. Tesla later approached Morgan to ask for more funds to build a more powerful transmitter. When asked where all the money had gone, Tesla responded by saying that he was affected by the Panic of 1901, which he (Morgan) had caused. Morgan was shocked by the reminder of his part in the stock market crash and by Tesla’s breach of contract by asking for more funds. Tesla wrote another plea to Morgan, but it was also fruitless. Morgan still owed Tesla money on the original agreement, and Tesla had been facing foreclosure even before construction of the tower began. In December 1901, Marconi successfully transmitted the letter S from England to Newfoundland, terminating Tesla’s relationship with Morgan.[improper synthesis?] Over the next five years, Tesla wrote over 50 letters to Morgan, pleading for and demanding additional funding to complete the construction of Wardenclyffe. Tesla continued the project for another nine months. The tower was erected to its full 187 feet (57 m). In July 1903, Tesla wrote to Morgan that in addition to wireless communication, Wardenclyffe would be capable of wireless transmission of electric power. On 14 October 1904, Morgan finally replied through his secretary, stating, “It will be impossible for [me] to do anything in the matter,” after Tesla had written to Morgan when the financier was meeting with the Archbishop of Canterbury in an attempt to appeal to his Christian spirit. In June 1902, Tesla’s lab operations were moved to Wardenclyffe from Houston Street. On his 50th birthday in 1906, Tesla demonstrated his 200 horsepower (150 kilowatts) 16,000 rpm bladeless turbine. During 1910–1911 at the Waterside Power Station in New York, several of his bladeless turbine engines were tested at 100–5,000 hp. Tesla invented a steam-powered mechanical oscillator—Tesla’s oscillator. While experimenting with mechanical oscillators at his Houston Street lab, Tesla allegedly generated a resonance of several buildings. As the speed grew, it is said that the machine oscillated at the resonance frequency of his own building and, belatedly realizing the danger, he was forced to use a sledge hammer to terminate the experiment, just as the police arrived.:162–164 In February 1912, an article—”Nikola Tesla, Dreamer” by Allan L. Benson—was published in World Today, in which an artist’s illustration appears showing the entire earth cracking in half with the caption, “Tesla claims that in a few weeks he could set the earth’s crust into such a state of vibration that it would rise and fall hundreds of feet and practically destroy civilization. A continuation of this process would, he says, eventually split the earth in two.” Tesla theorized that the application of electricity to the brain enhanced intelligence. In 1912, he crafted “a plan to make dull students bright by saturating them unconsciously with electricity,” wiring the walls of a schoolroom and, “saturating [the schoolroom] with infinitesimal electric waves vibrating at high frequency. The whole room will thus, Mr. Tesla claims, be converted into a health-giving and stimulating electromagnetic field or ‘bath.'” The plan was, at least provisionally approved by then superintendent of New York City schools, William H. Maxwell. Before World War I, Tesla sought overseas investors. After the war started, Tesla lost the funding he was receiving from his patents in European countries. Eventually, he sold Wardenclyffe for $20,000 ($472,500 in today’s dollars). In 1917, around the time that the Wardenclyffe Tower was demolished by Boldt to make the land a more viable real estate asset, Tesla received AIEE’s highest honor, the Edison Medal. In the August 1917 edition of the magazine Electrical Experimenter Tesla postulated that electricity could be used to locate submarines via using the reflection of an “electric ray” of “tremendous frequency,” with the signal being viewed on a fluorescent screen (a system that has been noted to have a superficial resemblance to modern radar). Tesla was incorrect in his assumption that high frequency radio waves would penetrate water but Émile Girardeau, who helped develop France’s first radar system in the 1930s, noted in 1953 that Tesla’s general speculation that a very strong high frequency signal would be needed was correct stating “(Tesla) was prophesying or dreaming, since he had at his disposal no means of carrying them out, but one must add that if he was dreaming, at least he was dreaming correctly.”:266
Jeremy Corbyn is a man that is attacked regularly by the corporate owned media mainstream media and the Conservative government, they claim his anti war, anti oppression, pro human rights views are a danger to the security of Britain. Jeremy Corbyn is a man with strong and controversial (to some people) beliefs, he stands against the super rich monarchies, the corporate takeover of Britain, banker greed and the old fashioned, warmongering British mentality. What I have noticed about some of the reporting on Jeremy Corbyn is; as always the mainstream media are very predictable they present Jeremy Corbyn as unpatriotic for daring to have an opinion, instead of them asking questions like; Is Jeremy Corbyn right about the monarchy? Is it dated, old fashioned, silly and oppressive? Does it discourage equity and breed greed? The mainstream media are asking; Should he kneel before the queen? Should he sing the National anthem more passionately?
For me so far Jeremy Corbyn is a legend! He might not win an election but he will offer a real alternative, the mainstream media use of propaganda will go down to the lowest depths to prevent Jeremy Corbyn from getting in! He fights oppression, greed, aristocracy and unjust wars at the same time he is battling against an extremely biased and political motivated corporate owned media and fake Labour Blairites and Brownites that are Conservative minded, sometimes refereed to as blue Labour. He fights the police state, the corrupt system and the most powerful enemy of all Great British ignorance. The corporate media ignore much of what he does instead of reporting his policies and ideas they keep moaning and complaining about silly things like his potential refusal to bow down to a tradition he does not believe in. I believe a real leader must be strong and not a puppet, pissing off a few billionaire hierarchies is a much better investment in our governments time than fighting wars in the Middle East that kill innocent people. They claim he is a ridiculous leftie that hates Britain and they base much of this claim on the fact he has personal beliefs that are not the same as what we are programmed to believe.
Jeremy Corbyn does not appear to be a liar unlike Obama, he does not appear to be a purely financially motivated, elitist puppet unlike David Cameron, he appears to offer Great Britain a real alternative and choice unlike Tony Blair and Gordon Brown. He does not appear to be a likable but an incompetent buffoon unlike George Bush and Boris Johnson and surely that is a good thing. As much as I love watching world leaders make complete laughing stocks of themselves I think I would rather watch world leaders fight against injustice, oppression and war.
Vietnam War and resistance to the draft
In 1964, Ali failed the U.S. Armed Forces qualifying test because his writing and spelling skills were sub-par (he was quoted as saying, “I said I was the greatest, not the smartest!”). However, in early 1966, the tests were revised and Ali was reclassified as 1A. This classification meant he was now eligible for the draft and induction into the United States Army during a time when the U.S. was involved in the Vietnam War.
When notified of this status, Ali declared that he would refuse to serve in the Army and publicly considered himself a conscientious objector. Ali stated: “War is against the teachings of the Holy Qur’an. I’m not trying to dodge the draft. We are not supposed to take part in no wars unless declared by Allah or The Messenger. We don’t take part in Christian wars or wars of any unbelievers.” More succinctly and famously he said, “I ain’t got no quarrel with them Viet Cong – no Viet Cong ever called me Nigger.” The statement articulated, for many people, a reason to oppose the war.
Appearing for his scheduled induction into the U.S. Armed Forces on April 28, 1967 in Houston, Ali refused three times to step forward at the call of his name. An officer warned him he was committing a felony punishable by five years in prison and a fine of $10,000. Once more, Ali refused to budge when his name was called. As a result, he was arrested. On the same day the New York State Athletic Commission suspended his boxing license and stripped him of his title. Other boxing commissions followed suit. Ali would not be able to obtain a license to box in any state for over three years.
In the years between the appellate court decision and the Supreme Court verdict, Ali remained free. As public opinion began turning against the war and the Civil Rights movement continued to gather momentum, Ali became a popular speaker at colleges and universities across the country, rare if not unprecedented for a boxer. At Howard University, for example, he gave his popular “Black Is Best” speech to 4,000 cheering students and community intellectuals, after he was invited to speak by sociology professor Nathan Hare on behalf of the Black Power Committee, a student protest group.
On June 28, 1971, the Supreme Court in Clay v. United States overturned Ali’s conviction by a unanimous 8-0 decision (Justice Thurgood Marshall did not participate). The decision was not based on, nor did it address, the merits of Ali’s claims per se; rather, the Court held that since the Appeal Board gave no reason for the denial of a conscientious objector exemption to Ali, and that it was therefore impossible to determine which of the three basic tests for conscientious objector status offered in the Justice Department’s brief that the Appeals Board relied on, Ali’s conviction must be reversed.
Impact of Ali’s stance
Ali’s example inspired countless black Americans and others. New York Times columnist William Rhoden wrote, “Ali’s actions changed my standard of what constituted an athlete’s greatness. Possessing a killer jump shot or the ability to stop on a dime was no longer enough. What were you doing for the liberation of your people? What were you doing to help your country live up to the covenant of its founding principles?” 
Recalling Ali’s anti-war position, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar said: “I remember the teachers at my high school didn’t like Ali because he was so anti-establishment and he kind of thumbed his nose at authority and got away with it. The fact that he was proud to be a Black man and that he had so much talent … made some people think that he was dangerous. But for those very reasons I enjoyed him.”
Ali inspired Martin Luther King, Jr., who had been reluctant to address the Vietnam War for fear of alienating the Johnson Administration and its support of the civil rights agenda. Now, King began to voice his own opposition to the war for the first time.
In speaking of the cost on Ali’s career of his refusal to be drafted, his trainer Angelo Dundee said, “One thing must be taken into account when talking about Ali: He was robbed of his best years, his prime years.”
Ali’s resistance to the draft was covered in the 2013 documentary The Trials of Muhammad Ali.
Watching “The battle for number 10” was interesting to say the least, Jeremy Paxman who is apparently pro Tory did not let it show unlike the snake eyed Kay Burley, she was openly and ridiculously biased she might as well as spat at Miliband when he walked on the stage it would have been less obvious. Paxman was cruel to Miliband calling him a “geek” but to be fair he had David Cameron speechless and looking like a naughty, guilty school boy. The winner was definitely Jeremy Paxman who was brilliant and for once the viewer watching David Cameron crumble and have no logical answers for his actions over the last five years was brilliant.

2nd of May 2015 Manny “Pacman” Pacquaio is set to fight Floyd “Money” Mayweather in a mega fight that even non boxing fans are interested in. Many believe that if Floyd Mayweather wins he would have confirmed himself to be not just the best in modern day boxing but also maybe the greatest of all time! I do not believe that this is the case, why? First of all I am not a Floyd Mayweather hater, he is without doubt a great champion with one of the most impressive defenses I have ever seen and I have been a huge boxing fan since I was about 12, but I do not believe Manny Pacquaio is as great as he was five years ago and Sugar Ray Robinson (lost only 1 from his first 130 fights!), Henry Armstrong, Muhammad Ali, Jimmy Wilde there have been some pretty impressive boxers that have achieved titles at multiple weights at a time when there was one champion per division meaning every champion of every division was undisputed.
Is Mayweather even is best of this century so far? He is definitely among them no doubt about it, but I do not believe it is as clear cut as some say, despite the fact that greed and boxing politics are slowly destroying the sport, boxing has still created some very good boxers in recent years Joe Calzaghe, Manny Pacquaio, Roy Jones, Bernard Hopkins, James Tony, the Klitschko brothers, Marco Antonio Barrera, Erik Morales and many others.
I love watching Mayweather his defense is incredible and he certainly is one of the modern greats but not the “GOAT” for my money. Manny “Pacman” Pacquaio is aggressive and when at his best exciting to watch and also certainly one of the modern greats but past his best, so is Mayweather but Pacquaio has had the harder career.
Much is made of Floyd Mayweather’s unbeaten record but I watched him get out punched, out worked and at times out boxed by Jose Luis Castillo back in 2002, yet somehow the judges seen the fight completely differently.
Who wins on the 2nd May 2015? I hope Pacquaio wins and five years ago I believed he would win he has the power and speed to cause problems and he is definitely the best Mayweather has faced so far, I like boxers that like to fight and entertain but I fear Mayweather may outbox Pacquaio with his effective defensive style and win on points unless Pacquaio falls behind and gets desperate, in that case he could even get knocked out.
The fight can be viewed on killers of boxing SKY Box Office for a rip off price of £15, I hope someone put it on YouTube before the news tells me the result!
I am not a fanboy and I believe that Microsoft and Sony are two businesses that the world could do without, having said that Microsoft, Sony and the Nintendo are now the only decent way to play games at the moment, some people like PCs but for gameplay game consoles always have the edge for my money. We have less choice then we did in the 90’s and Microsoft, Sony are now the only businesses that produce decent game consoles, Nintendo is always quite good and very clever but aimed towards a much younger age group.

There is an undeniable huge leap in power and technology over the seventh generation but there is also undeniable huge leap in the cost of playing, the games are £60 when just released plus £40 per year, per person so if two kids want two online accounts that is £80 per year, the control pads are expensive, I prefer the PS4’s control pad but XBOX ONE’S is also very comfortable to hold and well designed. Despite Playstation 4 being the more powerful of the two the XBOX looks better on some comparisons but there is hardly anything in it. I believe the XBOX ONE has better games so far but to trying to force the Xbox Kinect on to people and charging £100 more than the PS4 was a huge FUCK UP and now XBOX is playing catch up, a case of Microsoft chocking on their own greed?
I think the PS4 is not as great as the hype would have you believe, although the console itself is fairly priced, after that it gets expensive and though powerful and smartly designed it still does not have the best choice of games (but GTA5 is more than enough to keep me busy for now.) Xbox One is also all of the above with probably a slightly better choice of games so far, but Sony are sinking and losing money and therefore desperate and although I would not go all out and say “buy a PS4” I would definitely say “if you are going to buy a eighth generation games console, buy a PS4!” Why?
PS4 has already sold nearly 20 million units (18.5million comfirmed by Sony) compared to XBOX ONE selling about 11 million according to the Guardian, that means game developers are going to be more willing to produce Playstation games then Xbox games, also I would rather give my money to a sinking and struggling, would have probably already sank if it was not for the success of the PS4, Sony then give my money to Microsoft and Bill Gates.
