The Industrial Revolution (18-19th Century)
 
03:59
Introduction to some of the elements of the Industrial Revolution, more on this subject to come! The economic developments of the 1800s saw the development of agrarian and handicraft economies in Europe and America transform into industrial urbanised ones. The term to describe this phenomenon would be known as the ‘Industrial Revolution’ and was first used by French writers, but made popular by English economic historian Arnold Toynbee.

3 Hour Hike in 2 Minutes: Gold Mine Trail, WA
 
02:20
Explore with me as I hike the Gold Mine Trail in the Sumas Mountains outside of Bellingham, Washington. "The Nooksack mines are located on Sumas Mt. in the Mt. Baker Mining District of Whatcom County WA at an elevation of 1600 feet. The mines were the backdrop for one of the most elaborate mining scams in history. The mines were staked in 1900, originally 8 claims. The mining camp was large and state of the art. A stamp mill, hotel, dance hall, bunk houses, mining offices were all constructed prior to development of the mines. Much of what on at the site was done under a veil of mystery. The mining company attracted 370 prominent individuals of the day as investors. A vault set up at the site, which still exists today was stocked with gold for investors to view. A dance hall complete with female companionship was also part of the investors visit. It was said the mining camp ran more like a resort than gold mine. Suspicion and curiosity of the sites operations lead to a local miner slipping into the camp by night and obtaining ore samples. Once these samples were assayed to determine the gold content, the ore was found to be worthless. Once word of this revelation became public, the operators of the mine shut the mine down and quietly fled. The mine assets were auctioned in 1906 to pay the debts accumulated. However not one of the 370 investors ever recouped a dime of the money they had invested. It was confirmed that the site had been "salted" or gold placed in the mines with the sole intent of deceiving." - http://www.ghosttownsofwashington.com/nooksack-mine.html

Exploring the abandoned mines and buildings of Treasure Hill in Pioche, Nevada
 
15:20
For more on the Volcano Mine please follow this link: https://youtu.be/MYndubSpTtk This video describes our visit to Pioche, Nevada on 10-16-2018. Pioche is/was a mining town. William Hamblin discovered gold and silver there in 1863 and in 1868 sold his claim to a banker from San Francisco named F. L. A. Pioche. By the late 1860's Pioche was one of the baddest and roughest towns in the west and was ruled only by the gun when there were disputes. It was also one of the most important silver mining towns in Nevada. By 1872 the mining camps pushed the population to over 7000, but the fortunes soon faded and today the population is about 1000. During the boom times there were reported to be over 70 saloons and a busy red light district and along with that many murders. In the early 1870's it's reported that 60% of the states murders occurred there and supposedly around 100 murderers are buried at Boot Hill cemetery. Much of the mining was over by 1900 although some mining took place during WW2. There was an aerial tram that is still standing today that hauled ore from Treasure Hill to the Godbe Mill . There are several attractions around town including a small museum and if you like rock and roll bands stop in to Kelly Garni's art studio/cafe/bar and say hello. He was a founding member of the band Quiet Riot and was a childhood friend of the great guitarist Randy Rhoads. Kelly has his autobiography called 'Angels With Dirty Faces' for sale in his establishment. We enjoyed a meal there and also enjoyed talking with Kelly who has some great stories.

Why is Modern Art so Bad?
 
05:50
For two millennia, great artists set the standard for beauty. Now those standards are gone. Modern art is a competition between the ugly and the twisted; the most shocking wins. What happened? How did the beautiful come to be reviled and bad taste come to be celebrated? Renowned artist Robert Florczak explains the history and the mystery behind this change and how it can be stopped and even reversed.

For a score of centuries, artists enriched Western society with their works of astonishing beauty. "The Night Watch"... "The Thinker"... "The Rocky Mountains." Master after master, from Leonardo, to Rembrandt, to Bierstadt, produced works that inspired, uplifted, and deepened us. And they did this by demanding of themselves the highest standards of excellence, improving upon the work of each previous generation of masters, and continuing to aspire to the highest quality attainable. But something happened on the way to the 20th Century. The profound, the inspiring and the beautiful were replaced by the new, the different, and the ugly. Today the silly, the pointless, and the purely offensive are held up as the best of modern art. Michelangelo carved his "David" out of a rock. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art just offers us a rock, -- a rock -- all 340 tons of it. That's how far standards have fallen. How did this happen? How did the thousand-year ascent towards artistic perfection and excellence die out? It didn't. It was pushed out. Beginning in the late 19th century, a group dubbed The Impressionists rebelled against the French Academie des Beaux Arts and its demand for classical standards. Whatever their intentions, the new modernists sowed the seeds of aesthetic relativism -- the "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" mentality. Today everybody loves the Impressionists. And, as with most revolutions, the first generation or so produced work of genuine merit. Monet, Renoir, and Degas still maintained elements of disciplined design and execution, but with each new generation standards declined until there were no standards. All that was left was personal expression. The great art historian Jacob Rosenberg wrote that quality in art "is not merely a matter of personal opinion but to a high degree . . . objectively traceable." But the idea of a universal standard of quality in art is now usually met with strong resistance if not open ridicule. "How can art be objectively measured?" I'm challenged. In responding, I simply point to the artistic results produced by universal standards compared to what is produced by relativism. The former gave the world "The Birth of Venus" and "The Dying Gaul," while the latter has given us "The Holy Virgin Mary," fashioned with cow dung and pornographic images, and "Petra," the prize-winning sculpture of a policewoman squatting and urinating -- complete with a puddle of synthetic urine. Without aesthetic standards we have no way to determine quality or inferiority. Here's a test I give my graduate students, all talented and well educated. Please analyze this Jackson Pollock painting and explain why it is good. It is only after they give very eloquent answers that I inform them that the painting is actually a close up of my studio apron. I don't blame them; I would probably have done the same since it's nearly impossible to differentiate between the two.

Westward Expansion: Crash Course US History #24
 
12:44
In which John Green teaches you about the Wild, Wild, West, which as it turns out, wasn't as wild as it seemed in the movies. When we think of the western expansion of the United States in the 19th century, we're conditioned to imagine the loner. The self-reliant, unattached cowpoke roaming the prairie in search of wandering calves, or the half-addled prospector who has broken from reality thanks to the solitude of his single-minded quest for gold dust. While there may be a grain of truth to these classic Hollywood stereotypes, it isn't a very big grain of truth. Many of the pioneers who settled the west were family groups. Many were immigrants. Many were major corporations. The big losers in the westward migration were Native Americans, who were killed or moved onto reservations. Not cool, American pioneers. Support CrashCourse on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/crashcourse Hey teachers and students - Check out CommonLit's free collection of reading passages and curriculum resources to learn more about the events of this episode. America’s Westward expansion was fueled by both Manifest Destiny and a desire to grow the nation and its resources — though at a cost: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/manifest-destiny As Americans continued to stream West on the name of Manifest Destiny, American Indians saw their lives changed forever as they moved from practising resistance to lives on reservations: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/from-resistance-to-reservations

It was founded by gold prospectors in 1888, and gazetted in 1890.[2] It is the major town and administrative centre of the Shire of Yilgarn.[3] At the 2006 census, Southern Cross had a population of 708.[1] The town of Southern Cross is one of the many towns which run along the Mundaring to Kalgoorlie Goldfields Water Supply Scheme engineered by C. Y. O'Connor.[4] A succession of gold rushes in the Yilgarn region near Southern Cross in 1887, at Coolgardie in 1892, and at Kalgoorlie in 1893 caused a population explosion in the barren and dry desert centre of Western Australia. It is named after the Southern Cross constellation,[2] and the town's most significant streets are named after stars. Southern Cross is on the standard gauge railway from Perth to Kalgoorlie and beyond. The Prospector and Indian Pacific passenger trains service the town. The former narrow gauge railway reached Southern Cross on 1 July, 1894.[5] DON PUGH CARAVAN TRIPP 2008

Free News Sharing and On-Line Art Gallery http://www.ciactivist.org FEATURE: The 2016 Fire and Rain art project that began in early January was inspired by news stories on wildfires that burned throughout Western Canada in 2015. Paintings were displayed outdoors publicly throughout Edmonton and their stories shared on YouTube. I used art from the beginning to defend freedom of expression on the Alberta Legislature grounds when it was verbally banned 3 times by Legislature officials. Some of the YouTubes published shared how the wildfires and flooding that followed affected Albertans, their communities and the environment. I hope my art and the stories shared will inspire us to contemplate the calamities in Alberta of 2016 as a collective and together help each other find ways and better solutions to save our planet and our children's future.

Australia. History of Australia in a Nutshell.
 
10:38
The animated history of Australia in a nutshell. For centuries, rumors and legends are spreading among the traders, about the Terra Australis Incognita, unknown southern land. For Europeans, this is only a tale. However, in the middle of the sixteenth century, a series of world maps are created, so-called 'the maps from Dieppe,' documenting the latest Portuguese explorations, on which a mysterious land is found, called 'Le Grand Java.' A few centuries later, the map will be considered by some as the evidence of discovering Australia by Portuguese. Soon after, in sixteen-o-five a Dutch trader, Willem Janszoon, sets sails from the Dutch East Indies to search for a new land. According to his plan, he arrives at an unknown destination and names it 'Keer-Weer.' As it turns out, later on, it is Australia, modern-day Cape York. Since that moment, the sea route is frequented by the Dutch ships, which sometimes, sailing too far away are sighting the coast of Terra Australis. The Dutch, bring Terra Australis to the world maps. In sixteen-eighty-eight, William Dampier sets out on a voyage around the New Holland, returns and convinces the Admiralty to support another expedition. In August seventeen-sixty-eight, HMS Bark the Endeavor, under the command of Captain James Cook, sets sails from England. In the year seventeen-seventy arrives at the coast of New Holland and disembarks in several spots, including Botany Bay and Possession Island and gives the land a name - the New South Wales. Cook's expedition spreads the idea to colonize the new land, and with losing the thirteen colonies, the idea grows stronger. During that time, many people in Britain live in poverty and the penalty for theft is high. Choosing between hunger, and thievery, many Brits are choosing the theft and simultaneously overpopulates the local prisons. Officially to reduce the criminal population, and unofficially to make use of the human resources British Government sends out an expedition to create a penal colony and a bridgehead for further British colonization. In seventeen-eighty-eight under the patronage of Lord Sydney, an expedition arrives at Botany Bay under the command of Arthur Philip, carrying seven hundred and thirty convicts and two hundred and fifty free men plus the crew. Discovers a large bay, founds a settlement and names it after the patron of the expedition, Sydney. British push forward, and in eighteen-twenty-seven Edmund Lockyer founds Albany in modern-day Western Australia. Britain claims the entire continent. Along the increase of the free people, resistance grows, people do not want the penal status of the land. Finally, the British Parliament convinced, agrees to stop sending convicts to some of the colonies. Since eighteen-forty sending criminals will be gradually reduced, until the tenth of January eighteen-sixty-eight when the last shipment of convicts will reach the Western Australia. In eighteen-twenty-five the population equals about sixty thousand people, to reach four hundred-fifty thousand in eighteen-fifty-one, to touch, during a gold rush, over a million and fifty thousand people, just ten years later. Locally, Aborigines are oppressed. At the beginning of colonization, Aborigines not knowing the concept of property, do no know what treaties with the Europeans can bring. They are bringing disease and plagues decimating aborigines, and also the conquest of the natives pushed out from their homelands. Until the nineteen-sixty-seven, Aborigines, will not be considered as equal inhabitants and citizens of their native land. On the first of January nineteen-o-one, a dominion of the Commonwealth of Australia is proclaimed, and Sir Edmund Burton becomes the first prime minister of the federation. Along with the outbreak of the First World War, thousands of young people on a distant continent, are at war which they do not understand. Thousands of dead and wounded shock Australian public opinion, and make them realize the difference between the British and Australian interests. The Second World War breaks out. Like two decades earlier, Australia joins war along with Britain. However, the British are being defeated in the far east. Japan quickly takes new territories. Hong Kong falls. Singapore falls. Australia is under threat. The United Kingdom put on the defensive in Europe and cannot provide support. A turning point occurs. ANZAC asks the United States for protection. Along with its victories, the US takes the opportunity to pull Australia and New Zealand under its influence. The war in Europe ends and soon after also on the Pacific, the new world order is brought to life.

Remnants of the 1900's Dingo Proof Fence - Meteorite Island - Dumbleyung - Western Australia
 
03:50
Southern Western Australian Dingo is now Extinct! So Sad WA Dingo Association - Dingo Facts By all definitions a native animal which is historically documented by all explorers from 1600's onwards. It has adapted and evolved to be a unique Australian species over 5 - 10,000 years. Rock art and fossil remains evidence the antiquity of the species as a naturally evolved canine without any of the specific selected traits associated with interference by man. The dingo colonised the entire mainland of Australia, yet is now only to be found in remote and inaccessible fragmented habitats not seen as useful to humans. * Now scientifically proven to be a keystone trophic modulator for bio-diversity in all its habitats. Where the dingo is in stable social habitation small native species survive in a healthy state including Bilbies, Quolls and rare wallabies and possums. Where the dingo has been "controlled" read: exterminated - these same small native creatures have fallen into local extinction due to fox and cat predation. After 100 years of the Dingo Barrier fence the once "fertile pasture" is now nothing but barren bedrock, while the "outside" continues to support healthy native vegetation and many rare species * The dingo is our only natural selective suppressant of foxes, feral cats, rabbits, wild pigs and goats. Non-selective toxins can never hope to emulate natural modulation by predator species. All healthy ecosystems exhibit healthy prey species such as eagles, small raptors, goannas. Where they are absent - so is biodiversity. That is the key to the aboriginal regard for the dingo More to this story http://www.wadingo.com/Dingo_Facts.html Dingo The Dingo is Australia's wild dog. It was probably introduced to Australia by Asian seafarers about 4,000 years ago. Its origins have been traced back to a south Asian variety of Grey Wolf (Canis lupus lupus). Recent DNA studies suggest that Dingoes may have been in Australia even longer (between 4,640-18,1000 years; Oskarsson et al 2011), however, the earliest undisputed archaeological finding of the Dingo in Australia has been dated to 3,500 years ago tandard Common Name Dingo Identification The Dingo, Canis lupus dingo, is a placental mammal which means it gives birth to live young, feeds its young via mammary glands that produce milk and has fur or hair of some form. The colour of a Dingo's coat is largely determined by where it lives. The 'standard' coat colour is ginger with white feet. However in the desert areas, the fur is more golden yellow while in forested areas the fur can be a darker tan to black. The body fur is short while the tail is quite bushy. Its dog-like appearance with a relatively broad head and erect ears, makes the Dingo Australia's largest mammal carnivore. With canine teeth longer than those of a domestic dog, the dingo's muzzle is also longer and tapered. Size range Shoulder height: 440-620mm, Body length: 860-1230mm, Tail: 260-380mm, Body mass: 12-24kg. Distribution Having been in Australia for over 4,000 years, Dingoes inhabited many parts of mainland Australia but never became established in Tasmania. After European colonisation and the growth of pastoralisation, there was a concerted effort to remove Dingoes from farming areas. As a result, Dingoes are mostly absent from many parts of New South Wales, Victoria, the south-eastern third of South Australia and from the southern-most tip of Western Australia. Dingoes are regarded as common throughout the remainder of Australia except in the arid eastern half of Western Australia, nearby parts of South Australia and the Northern Territory.

Pugh .May, 1972 . ABSTRACT Although contact between a western civilization and a primitive culture often leads to the disintegration of the latter, the culture of the Swampy Cree of the Moose River drainage basin appears to have reached its optimal period or cultural climax during the fur trade from their contact with European technology . A complementary perception of the resources of the region permitted a symbiotic division of labour by each culture which strengthened and materially benefited the other without a loss in cultural identity . Cultural disintegration for the. Cree only occurred in the twentieth century when the European culture altered its goals and relationship to the land and introduced a cultural clash through encroachment on Cree hunting grounds, the imposition of European laws, and the suppression of native Cree customs and practices

Morris Rossabi on China And Mongolia Since 1990
 
48:09
The USC U.S.-China Institute presents a talk by Morris Rossabi on the current situation between Mongolia and China. -- Mongolians have often been suspicious of Beijing’s intentions, especially since Qing China occupied Mongolia and treated it as a colony from 1691 to 1911. Of even greater concern was that until 1950, Mao Zedong claimed that Mongolia was a Chinese province. Partly due to these political threats, Communist Mongolia sided with the Soviet Union in its disputes with the People's Republic of China from 1964 until the mid-1980s. After the collapse of Communism in Mongolia in 1990, Mongolia has, despite some misgivings, restored relations with China. Adopting policies advanced by international financial agencies (IMF, World Bank, Asian Development Bank), Mongolia has developed considerable trade with its neighbor, and China has become the largest investor in the country. China's elevated position has implications for Mongol's cultural, political, and economic relations with Taiwan, Russia, Japan, the West, and the Dalai Lama. This presentation considers the current situation, as well as prospects for the future. About the Speaker Born in Alexandria, Egypt, Morris Rossabi (Ph.D., Columbia University) teaches Chinese and Mongolian history at the City University of New York and at Columbia University. Author or Editor of twenty-five books, including Khubilai Khan; Modern Mongolia; China and Inner Asia; Voyager from Xanadu, and The Mongols: A Very Short Introduction, he has lectured widely in East Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and the Unite States. He served as Chair of the Arts and Culture Committee of the Open Society, is on the Global Advisory Board of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, and has collaborated on exhibitions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco.

Wahzhazhe: An Osage Ballet
 
01:03:00
The Osage ballet, Wahzhazhe, is a contemporary ballet that brings together unique and diverse qualities of Oklahoma history and culture: a reverence for classical ballet that was the legacy of two famous Osage ballerinas, Maria and Marjorie Tallchief, and the richness of Osage traditional music, dance, and textile arts. The creative set designs transform the stage into accurate depictions of Osage lifestyles and the costumes are created to appear as the traditional tribal clothing that was worn during the past 200 years. The ballet depicts the history of the Osage people: their removal from their homelands, the boarding-school era, the discovery of oil on their reservation, which lead to great wealth and tragedy, and the celebration of Osage life today. Wahzhazhe is produced by Randy Tinker Smith and choreographed by Jenna Smith, both of Osage descent. Roman Jasinski acted as adviser on the project. This performance was recorded on March 23, 2013 in the Rasmuson Theater of the National Museum of the American Indian.

History revisited digital art.mov

As a child I enjoyed Pop Art, and one of the greatest artists of that genre was Andy Warhol. My images are inspired by his Disasters series, but mine differ significantly. Warhol was interested in boredom, and expressing the oppressiveness of modern, urban living. He also lampooned commercial art, and made it an icon of American popular culture. My series superficially looks like Warhol, but the subject matter is anything but boring. It deals with various incidents in history, how we perceive and deal with them and their influence. On the surface my works are striking, colorful and draw the viewer's attention. Then viewers realize the images are unfamiliar or disturbing, and need an explanation. The idea behind this series is that history and its influence are all around us, to appreciate and learn from. But often we are so busy with with our daily lives that we forget about it, and it becomes merely superficial bits of information, to be filed away with everything else our brains are bombarded and numbed with with on a daily basis. So my series can be taken different ways, the viewer can enjoy the colors and patterns, and associations with Warhol and Pop art, or ask some questions and enjoy the pieces even more.

The (mostly) true story of hobo graffiti
 
05:37
What we know about hobo graffiti comes from hobos — a group that took pride in embellishing stories.

They used graffiti, also known as tramp writing, as a messaging system to tell their fellow travelers where they were and where they were going. Hobos would carve or draw their road persona, or moniker, on stationary objects near railroad tracks, like water towers and bridges. But news stories at the time spread tales of a different kind of graffiti. They included coded symbols that were supposedly drawn on fence posts and houses to convey simple messages to tramps. Seeing an image of a cat on a fence post indicated “kind lady lives here,” for example. While this language probably existed to a certain extent, it certainly was not as widespread as the media led readers to believe. In reality, these stories were largely informed by hobos — a group that took pride in embellishing stories so they could remain elusive.

Remote cave reveals Australia's earliest inhabitants
 
01:54
A team of international archaeologists has confirmed evidence from a remote cave in Australia’s North West that pushes back human occupation of Australia to around 50,000 years ago. The discovery is of international significance in providing one of the earliest age brackets for the settlement of Australia. Lead archaeologist Professor Peter Veth, from The University of Western Australia, said the findings provided unique evidence for the early and successful adaptation of Aboriginal people to both coastal and desert landscapes of Australia.

Education has long been heralded as the key to economic improvement. Leading economist Don Drummond has studied the economic inequality of Canada's First Nations and concluded that every effort must be taken to lead young people to post-secondary education. What barriers make a university or college education extremely difficult to achieve for First Nations young people?
Drywashing for gold at the old Coolgardie Mining Camp - Just North of Barstow, California 13
 
02:43
Using a recirculating system with a high banker - There's a lot of history here and some nice gold flakes can still be found here (but most of this area is claim up - if you join a gold prospecting club that owns claims here, like the GPAA, then you can mine here) Gold was first discovered in easily obtainable deposits in the Mojave Desert around 1900, and a small settlement of several hundred miners soon sprang up. Coolgardie was named after the rich western Australian mining town that became large and famous both for its wealth and rough nature. Mexican miners coming from the Gold Rush up north worked this area for a while and then it was worked again during the Great Depression. California's Coolgardie never reached the same status, although it was one of the few placer mining districts in the desert. When the gold ran out after just a few short years, there was nothing in this desolate place to entice its residents to stay. Gradually the wooden structures crumbled, and today little remains except some rusted cans and piles of lumber where buildings used to stand. Coolgardie is 19 miles north of Barstow, and it is necessary to drive along a narrow dirt road to reach it. Visitors should exercise extreme caution because many mining shafts have not been filled in and a fall would leave a victim stranded in the middle of the desert.
