Disaster Chronicles: Farmington Mine Disaster - A&E (1990)
An episode of the early-1990's A&E Channel series "Disaster Chronicles," hosted by Joe Witte, focusing on the Farmington, WV Mine explosion and fire in November, 1968. Apologies for the sound. It'd be great if there were more episodes of this great show online since I unfortunately lost a tape of the 1974 Xenia Tornado, the 1960 Air Crash in NYC, the 1980 MGM Grand Fire, and Mudflow in Italy episodes some years back.

Harlan County, USA
Harlan County, USA is a 1976 Oscar-winning documentary film covering the "Brookside Strike", an effort of 180 coal miners and their wives against the Duke Power Company-owned Eastover Coal Company's Brookside Mine and Prep Plant in Harlan County, southeast Kentucky in 1973.[2] Directed and produced by Barbara Kopple, who has long been an advocate of workers' rights, Harlan County, U.S.A. is less ambivalent in its attitude toward unions than her later American Dream, the account of the Hormel Foods strike in Austin, Minnesota in 1985-86.

Scotia Mine Explosion 1976 Part 2 of 5
Scotia Mine Explosion 1976 Part 2 of 5 Letcher County notes the tragic mine explosions that occurred at Scotia Mine in 1976. The accidents are noted as being one of the worst mine disasters in U.S. history. When industrial coal mining came to the mountains of southeastern Kentucky in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, it brought both positives and negatives. On the one hand, mining operations brought a steady paycheck to those who had largely lived by the alternating fortunes of farming. Conversely, the mines brought a sense of employment dependence and often unsafe working conditions. By the mid-1900s, mining safety had improved drastically from just a few years before. Battery powered lamps had replaced carbide lanterns and continuous automated mining equipment had taken over for the pick and shovel and draft animals. But, due to the nature of the work, accidents still injured miners. The Scotia Mine began operations in 1962 and was a subsidiary of the Blue Diamond Coal Company. It was located in the Ovenfork Community of Letcher County, about fourteen miles northeast of the town of Cumberland (Harlan County, Kentucky). On March 9, 1976, at approximately 11:45 a.m., an explosion caused by coal dust and gasses rocked the Scotia mine. Two days later, a second explosion happened. The first explosion killed fifteen miners; the second killed eleven. Investigators believed that the explosions were caused by methane gasses that were ignited by a spark caused by a battery-powered locomotive or another electric device. A lack of ventilation figured prominently in the accidents. The explosions at Scotia led to the passage of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977. This law strengthened the previously passed 1969 act, which, at the time, had been the most significant legislation on mine safety ever adopted in the U.S. The 1977 law also moved the Mine Safety and Health Administration from the Department of the Interior to the Department of Labor.

Grieving relatives begin burying dead from mine disaster, Gul visits scene
Hundreds of people attended funerals for the victims of the Turkey's worst mining disaster in the western mining town of Soma on Thursday. Dozens of graves were dug, ready to receive the bodies. Rescue teams recovered eight more victims, raising the death toll to 282, with 142 people still unaccounted for. So far 363 miners have been rescued. Hopes are fading for those still trapped deep underground in smouldering tunnels filled with toxic gases. No miner has been brought out alive since early Wednesday. Mourners at the funerals said they spent their lives fearing something like this. Later, Turkish President Abdullah Gul visited the mine and consoled some of the relatives.

Coal Mined
Coal may keep the lights on...but it keeps many people in the dark. Through the story of my own experience as a former Appalachian coal miner, Coal Mined is a film about heritage, family, and coming to terms with the impact the coal industry has had on our lives and communities. www.thethoughtfulcoalminer.com -- While studying communications at Berea College​, I realized the importance of documentary film as a means of reaching the public. I took a documentary film class under the direction of Dr. Gordon Gray​ and, along with the assistance of two other students in our group, Dylan K. Mullins​, and Richard Childers, Coal Mined was brought to life. I was hesitant to do a documentary about myself, but time constraints while taking a full course load and having a family meant traveling back home to conduct more interviews was simply impossible. I was eventually able to take a digital editing class with Dr. Jacob Dickerson​, and now almost two years later, I decided to spend some time cleaning up the original cut. It's still very rudimentary, but at least a bit better than the original. Again thanks to Peter Hille of MACED​, Stephen Sanders of the Appalachian Citizens' Law Center​, David Cook of Grow Appalachia​, Terry L Steele​, and Wilma Lee Steele​. for their interviews. Thanks to Anne Lewis and Appalshop​ for footage from Justice in the Coalfields, East Tennessee State University​ for some of the archival photos, and here's a huge shout out to everyone at the Loyal Jones Appalachian Center​ and the dozens of professors at Berea College who saw something in me I often couldn't find.

Tea Party Theme Song from the first Modern Tea Party
In 1974 an event occurred in West Virginia that has been arguably called "the first shot in the cultural war." Fundamentalist Christians and their conservative allies, objecting to anti-Christian and anti-American textbooks shut down West Virginia's largest school system (about 45,000 students) along with many major businesses and the bus system of the capital city (Charleston) and garnered intense national attention. The lyrics for this song can be updated and used as the theme song for the Tea Party movement in America. See http://www.insectman.us/testimony/tea-party-theme-song.htm. EVERY CHRISTIAN, CONSERVATIVE, AND TEA PARTY PATRIOT CAN LEARN AND BE INSPIRED BY THE COURAGEOUS CORPS OF '74! There are Tea Party folks who think they are dedicated to Christian and conservative values and there are Tea Party people who proved themselves in the heat of battle against liberalism. Many of them are still living and today's Tea Partiers should honor them and learn from (as well as be inspired by) what they did. This video tells the story in song and photos.

The plant started generating electricity from Unit 1 in 1979 and from Unit 2 in 1980. From the beginning, Coal Creek Station has been a top performer in several national rankings of power plants as it is one of the most reliable and cost-efficient in the country. The fuel source for the plant is lignite coal, supplied by the adjoining Falkirk Mine.

George Gibson | "Coal Creek"
(f#DF#AD, relative) This was recorded at the home of master banjo player, researcher and mentor George R. Gibson in Knott County, Kentucky during a summer gathering in 2011. Almost all of the people who'd come to listen to George sing, talk and pick the banjo that evening were younger musicians who owed some part of their style and technique to his influence. "The Fraterville Mine disaster was a coal mine explosion that occurred on May 19, 1902 near the community of Fraterville, in the U.S. state of Tennessee. There were 216 miners who died as a result of the explosion, either from its initial blast or from the after-effects, making it the worst mining disaster in the state's history. The cause of the explosion, although never fully determined, was likely due to the build-up of methane gas which had leaked from an adjacent unventilated mine.[1][2] "Shortly after the disaster, the bodies of 89 of the 216 miners killed in the explosion were buried in what became known as the Fraterville Miners' Circle at Leach Cemetery in the nearby town of Coal Creek."

We will have many, many more videos like this one to come in the very near future. This has been Jake from Web Watch, thanks for watching. 10. Craco, Italy - Craco was once a thriving medieval village located in the south of Italy. It sits atop a large rock formation overlooking the gulf of Taranto. The town was once a monastic center, a feudal town, and a center of education with a university, a castle, a church, piazzas, and more. At its peak in 1561, Craco was a large exporter of grain, oil, vegetables, wine, and cotton. Unfortunately, in 1656, a plague struck Craco, reducing the population significantly. The rest of the population was forced to leave the town. Following this, the city never recovered due to its collapsing infrastructure. 9. Kayaköy, Turkey - Originally built in the 1700s in what was Greece at the time, this town was once home to over 20,000 people in the early 20th century. Unfortunately, when World War I hit, the Ottoman Empire collapsed and Greece lost the land to Turkey. The town was a large Greek Orthodox community, and when Turkey took it over the community was forced to flee. Since then, the town has sat abandoned with approximately 350 homes falling apart. 8. Polyana, Abkhazia - Polyana was once a decently sized town with over 40,000 people living inside it. In 1989, the town found itself caught in the middle of war. The war was between Georgian and Abkhazian armies and forced the people to leave. After the war, only a small few came back. 7. Bodie, California - Bodie, California was built in the mid to late 19th century in eastern California. By 1876, the town had flourished into a boom town thanks to the gold rush. This attracted several thousand residents. By the 1880s, the town also became a mining town. In 1910, the population was recorded at 698 people, which were predominantly people families who decided to stay in Bodie instead of moving on to other boom towns. Just a few years later, the town went into full decline and by the 40s the mines were shut down and the town was left abandoned where it has sat today. 6. Centralia, Pennsylvania - Centralia was founded in the late 1700s after colonial settlers bought the land from the Native Americans. Almost 100 years later, in 1856, the first coal mine in Centralia opened. This was followed by four more mines in the area. Little did anyone know, this would be the cause of the town's abandonment. 5. Cahaba, Alabama - Cahaba, Alabama was the first permanent state capital of Alabama from 1820 to 1825. In 1865, the town suffered a massive flood. The town became defunct, and the capital was moved. The town sits abandoned to this day with churches and old government buildings still lining the old unpaved roads. 4. Fortress of Shali, Siwa Oasis, Egypt - The ghost town of Shali lies near Egypt's isolated Siwa Oasis, about 350 miles west of Cairo. The town was built in the 1200s. It was a large fortress which would act as Egypt’s first line of defense from any westward attack. The buildings were made out of a salt and mud mixture that should not have stood the test of time. Amazingly, the structures, while very weathered, still stand today. 3. Pripyat, Ukraine - What's a video about ghost towns without mentioning Pripyat? Pripyat was founded in 1970 as a nuclear city to serve the nearby Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. Just 16 years later one of the reactors at the power plant melted down during a test where safety systems were turned off. The reactor exploded and sent radioactive material into the air. The town of Pripyat was completely abandoned in less than 2 days after the disaster. Many people were killed in the following years from radiation-caused diseases, and the town will be completely uninhabitable until at least the year 2200. 2. Varosha, Cyprus - Varosha, Famagusta is an abandoned oceanfront town with a violent past. The city was doing very well until 1974 when the Turkish Army invaded the city. The Greeks engaged them in the streets of Varosha and the 39,000 people who lived there were forced to flee in fear of their lives. 1. Hashima Island, Japan - Hashima Island was just a patch of unsettled land before 1800. When coal was found in 1810, though, miners came to the island in droves. By the early 1900s, multiple mines were created as well as apartment buildings for the miners and their families. At its peak, over 5,000 people were packed onto Hashima Island. By the 1970s, petroleum had replaced coal and the mines on the island began to shut down. In 1974, the last mine shut down and the island was completely abandoned just a few months later.

Father's Day is a celebration of fathers inaugurated in the early twentieth century to complement Mother's Day in celebrating fatherhood and male parenting. Father's Day is celebrated on a variety of dates worldwide and typically involves gift-giving, special dinners to fathers, and family-oriented activities. The first observance of Father's Day actually took place in Fairmont, West Virginia on July 5, 1908. It was organized by Mrs. Grace Golden Clayton, who wanted to celebrate the lives of the 210 fathers who had been lost in the Monongah Mining disaster several months earlier in Monongah, West Virginia, on December 6, 1907. It is possible that Clayton was influenced by the first celebration of Mother's Day that same year, just a few miles away. Clayton chose the Sunday nearest to the birthday of her recently deceased father. Unfortunately, the day was overshadowed by other events in the city, West Virginia did not officially register the holiday, and it was not celebrated again. Instead, credit for Father's Day went to Sonora Dodd from Spokane, who invented independently her own celebration of Father's Day just two years later, also influenced by Jarvis' Mother's Day. Clayton's celebration was forgotten until 1972, when one of the attendants to the celebration saw Nixon's proclamation of Father's Day, and worked to recover its legacy. The celebration is now held every year in the Central United Methodist Church, as the Williams Memorial Methodist Episcopal Church, South, was torn down in 1922. Fairmont is now promoted as the "Home of the First Father's Day Service". A bill to accord national recognition of the holiday was introduced in Congress in 1913. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson went to Spokane to speak in a Father's Day celebration and wanted to make it official, but Congress resisted, fearing that it would become commercialized.US President Calvin Coolidge recommended in 1924 that the day be observed by the nation, but stopped short of issuing a national proclamation. Two earlier attempts to formally recognize the holiday had been defeated by Congress.In 1957, Maine Senator Margaret Chase Smith wrote a proposal accusing Congress of ignoring fathers for 40 years while honoring mothers, thus "[singling] out just one of our two parents". In 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers, designating the third Sunday in June as Father's Day. Six years later, the day was made a permanent national holiday when President Richard Nixon signed it into law in 1972. In addition to Father's Day, International Men's Day is celebrated in many countries on November 19 for men and boys who are fathers.

Winter Hill Transmitter
Winter Hill is a hill near the boroughs of Chorley, Bolton and Blackburn with Darwen, in North West England. It is located on Rivington Moor and is 456 metres (1,496 ft) high. Part of the West Pennine Moors, it is a popular walking area, and has been the setting for mining activity, aeroplane disasters and murders. Its prominent position made it the ideal site for the Winter Hill TV Mast, transmitting to a large part of North West England. There also a number of other telecommunication masts and towers around the summit and side of the hill for mobile phones, Professional Mobile Radio users and emergency services. Lancashire Constabulary was the first to use the site for one of their base stations in 1950, they had to build the road and it is said to have been built by policemen.

Underrated Classic Rock Album 1976 (Parody)

The album was the group's first album after breaking away from their English backing band. Instead, the Mael Brothers used session musicians and hired former Milk 'N' Cookies bassist, and Roxy Music contributor (Viva!), Sal Maida on bass, Tuff Darts guitarist Jeffrey Salen and Hilly Boy Michaels on drums. The release was their first for Columbia Records in the US. The album employed a much heavier and harder rock sound. Initially, the Mael brothers had returned to work with the early Sparks member Earle Mankey. Together, they recorded the song "England", a song which bore much in common with the jaunty home-made and unusual sound that the three musicians had made together in the early 1970s. Conversely, Rupert Holmes and Jeffrey Lesser's production on the album was slicker and more direct and the resulting album displayed a more "American" AOR sound. This new "West Coast" sound was deemed a failure as Sparks felt the results were "bereft of personality". The final track on the album was a re-recording of "I Like Girls". The song had been a live favourite from their pre-1974 days. Versions of the song had previously been recorded in 1973 and again in 1974, but both takes were deemed unsatisfactory. The 1973 recording of "I Like Girls" was later included on the 1991 Rhino Entertainment compilation Profile: The Ultimate Sparks Collection. The lead single, "Big Boy", and its B-side, "Fill-er-up", were performed for a cameo appearance in the 1976 disaster film Rollercoaster, after Kiss turned down the role.
