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.

A photo compilation of the historic Bessie & Flat Top Coal Mines which were located in West Jefferson County, Alabama. Both coal mines were originally owned by the Sloss Sheffield Steel & Iron Company. Both mines were originally open around 1905 with the completion of the L&N Railroad Cane Creek Branch operated by Birmingham Mineral Railroad. Southern Railways also completed an extension via another route through what was called 'Bessie Junction' just to the west of the Bessie Coal Mine. The Mary Lee Industrial Railroad also serviced the Flat Top & Bessie Mines. Both coal mines were very deep and massive underground mining operations that went over 2000 feet in depth and stretched for miles underground. Both mines were eventually operated by U. S. Pipe & Foundry when they purchased Sloss Sheffield in the 1940's. Around 1955 both mines were eventually closed. Entire communities were built around these mines with their own schools, company commissaries , churches and doctors offices. Years later the mine sites were sold to Jim Walters Corporation. Today nothing remains of the mine sites with the exception of some abandoned railroad trestles and the old Flat Top Tunnel. Both mine sites remains reside on private property and no trespassing policy is strictly enforced.

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.

Keynote speaker Dr. Anton Treuer closes out Inver Hills Community College's Student/Faculty Conference. This year's theme was Flourishing in a World of Disasters. In this talk Dr. Treuer discusses some of the disasters visited upon American Indians, as well as how the effects of those disasters continue to linger even today. What makes this talk so powerful is that it does not simply attempt to lay blame, rather, Dr. Treuer offers possible solutions for growth and the possibility of authentic global flourishing. (NOTE: the camera needed reset every 30 minutes, which is why there are three "two second" breaks. NO content was lost in those, and the battery died right as Dr. Treuer cited Chris Rock and how racist does one have to be to turn down a day off of work just because it celebrates a black person. The talk ended right after that, so nothing of import was lost.) Thank you to all that helped make this happen!

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.

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.

A special episode-length documentary filmed on location in Dinétah; the name of the land of the Navajo people, spanning parts of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah. 21 Billion tons of coal, the largest deposit in the US with an estimated value of 100 billion dollars, lay untouched in Dinétah until 1966. In that year, Peabody Coal Company leased the land in an agreement with a Hopi tribal council they helped form. In 1974, Congress passed the Navajo-Hopi Land Settlement Act, commonly known as “the relocation law." It divided about 2 million acres of land previously shared between Diné and Hopi tribes. Nearly overnight, the homes of tens of thousands of Diné and several hundred Hopi were now illegal. Since then, an estimated 10,000 to 20,000 Diné people have been forcibly relocated. Today, only a small group of mostly elder Diné continue to live here, and those that remain are being pressured to leave. More than 40% of homes here lack running water. Peabody Energy’s two mines here have extracted over 400 million tons of coal and depleted 70 percent of an ancient desert aquifer. Peabody’s Kayenta coal mine fuels the Navajo Generating Station, which is owned by the US Department of the Interior and provides water and electricity to Phoenix, Tucson, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. What is the cost, paid in the lives of the Navajo people, of the water and power delivered to these cities? On the anniversary of the founding of the United States, we visit with Diné (Navajo) youth and elders coming together to fight for the survival of their culture, fighting against displacement caused by US government policy, as well as exploitation caused by mining and other polluting industries.

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.

Seventeen miners have died and another is missing, presumed dead, after an explosion at a coal mine in northern Russia. Rescue teams are attempting to reach the men at the Vorkutinskaya mine in Vorkuta, Komi region, around 1,160 miles northeast of Moscow. A ministry spokesperson told Sky News a methane explosion was reported at the mine at 10.28am local time this morning. The interior ministry for the Komi region put the toll at 18 dead. A total of 259 miners were working underground at the time, with 23 in the shaft where the explosion took place at a depth of 800 metres (0.5 miles). Five of those in the shaft were rescued - two received treatment at the scene and three were hospitalised. Two of the hospitalised men were in intensive care with multiple fractures and burns, the regional health ministry said, adding that one of them was "in extremely grave" condition. The Russian prime minister, Dmitry Medvedev, has asked for a report on the situation and urged help for the miners' families. The mine belongs to a division of Severstal, one of Russia's largest steel producers. President Vladimir Putin ordered Emergency Situations Minister Vladimir Puchkov to personally go to the mine to oversee the rescue operation. "The head of state expressed deep condolences to the relatives and loved ones of the killed miners," the Kremlin said in a statement. Russian state TV said the families of those killed in the explosion would receive two million rubles, around £42,000, in compensation. The mine in the northern city of Vorkuta has been working since 1973. According to its website, it won a corporate award in 2011 for "worthy working conditions - the basis for respect in the work force". Once the powerhouse of the Soviet economy, Russia's coal mines have a poor safety record, with frequent accidents reported despite recent efforts to improve conditions. Last month four workers died in an explosion at a mine in western Siberia. In 2010, 68 people were killed in two methane blasts at Russia's biggest underground coal mine, the Raspadskaya mine in Siberia.

Key aspects of the pit crew concept include ensuring there is 360 degree access to the patient (this may involve physically moving the patient a short distance), calm and concise communication at all times, the use of a ‘cardiac arrest checklist’, identifying a ‘team leader’ to manage the cardiac arrest team and members of the team adopting pre defined positions around the patient in order to deliver different elements of resuscitation efficiently and effectively.
