The Red Summer: The Chicago Race Riots of 1919.
 
03:47
A public domain video. The Red Summer refers to the summer and early autumn of 1919, which was marked by hundreds of deaths and higher casualties across the United States, as a result of race riots that occurred in more than three dozen cities and one rural county. In most instances, whites attacked African Americans. In some cases many blacks fought back, notably in Chicago. The Chicago race riot of 1919 was a major racial conflict that began in Chicago, Illinois on July 27, 1919 and ended on August 3. During the riot, thirty-eight people died (23 African American and 15 white) and over five hundred were injured. It is considered the worst of the approximately 25 riots during the Red Summer. The combination of prolonged arson, looting, and murder was the worst race rioting in the history of Illinois.

We Shall Fight on the Beaches: Churchill's Speech on the Dunkirk Evacuation
 
12:18
Listen to Churchill's moving speech "We Shall Fight on the Beaches... We Shall Never Surrender" On May 26, “Operation Dynamo “–the evacuation from Dunkirk began. The seas remained absolutely calm. The Royal Air Force–bitterly maligned at the time by the Army–fought vehemently to deny the enemy the total air supremacy which would have wrecked the operation. At the outset, it was hoped that 45,000 men might be evacuated; in the event, over 338,000 Allied troops reached England, including 26,000 French soldiers. On June 4, Churchill reported to the House of Commons, seeking to check the mood of national euphoria and relief at the unexpected deliverance, and to make a clear appeal to the United States.

Challenger Disaster, Control Room Reaction, Real Footage! 20th Century Time Machine
 
02:03
Watch the NASA control room staff's reaction to the devastating realization that the Challenger Space Shuttle had just exploded. The Space Shuttle Challenger disaster occurred on January 28, 1986, when the NASA Space Shuttle Challenger broke apart 73 seconds into its flight, leading to the deaths of its seven crew members, which included five NASA astronauts and two Payload Specialists. The spacecraft disintegrated over the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Cape Canaveral, Florida. Disintegration of the vehicle began after an O-ring seal in its right solid rocket booster failed at liftoff. Aerodynamic forces broke up the orbiter. The crew compartment and many other vehicle fragments were eventually recovered from the ocean floor after a lengthy search and recovery operation. The exact timing of the death of the crew is unknown; several crew members are known to have survived the initial breakup of the spacecraft. There was no escape system, and the impact of the crew compartment with the ocean surface was too violent to be survivable. A special commission was appointed by United States President Ronald Reagan to investigate the accident. The Rogers Commission found NASA's organizational culture and decision-making processes had been key contributing factors to the accident, with the agency violating its own safety rules. Approximately 17 percent of Americans witnessed the launch live because of the presence of Payload Specialist Christa McAuliffe, who would have been the first teacher in space.

A Visual Representation of Maya Angelou's Inaugural Poem "On the Pulse of Morning"
 
05:29
A visual representation of Maya Angelou's grammy award winning poem "On the Pulse of Morning". "On the Pulse of Morning" is a poem that Maya Angelou read at the first inauguration of President Bill Clinton on January 20, 1993. With her public recitation, Angelou became the second poet in history to read a poem at a presidential inauguration, and the first African American and woman. (Robert Frost was the first inaugural poet, at the 1961 inauguration of John F. Kennedy.) Angelou's audio recording of the poem won the 1994 Grammy Award in the "Best Spoken Word" category, resulting in more fame and recognition for her previous works, and broadening her appeal. "A Rock, A River, A Tree Hosts to species long since departed, Marked the mastodon. The dinosaur, who left dry tokens Of their sojourn here On our planet floor, Any broad alarm of their hastening doom Is lost in the gloom of dust and ages. But today, the Rock cries out to us, clearly, forcefully, Come, you may stand upon my Back and face your distant destiny, But seek no haven in my shadow. I will give you no more hiding place down here. You, created only a little lower than The angels, have crouched too long in The bruising darkness, Have lain too long Face down in ignorance. Your mouths spilling words Armed for slaughter. The Rock cries out today, you may stand on me, But do not hide your face. Across the wall of the world, A River sings a beautiful song, Come rest here by my side. Each of you a bordered country, Delicate and strangely made proud, Yet thrusting perpetually under siege. Your armed struggles for profit Have left collars of waste upon My shore, currents of debris upon my breast. Yet, today I call you to my riverside, If you will study war no more. Come, Clad in peace and I will sing the songs The Creator gave to me when I and the Tree and the stone were one. Before cynicism was a bloody sear across your Brow and when you yet knew you still Knew nothing. The River sings and sings on. There is a true yearning to respond to The singing River and the wise Rock. So say the Asian, the Hispanic, the Jew The African and Native American, the Sioux, The Catholic, the Muslim, the French, the Greek The Irish, the Rabbi, the Priest, the Sheikh, The Gay, the Straight, the Preacher, The privileged, the homeless, the Teacher. They hear. They all hear The speaking of the Tree. Today, the first and last of every Tree Speaks to humankind. Come to me, here beside the River. Plant yourself beside me, here beside the River. Each of you, descendant of some passed On traveller, has been paid for. You, who gave me my first name, you Pawnee, Apache and Seneca, you Cherokee Nation, who rested with me, then Forced on bloody feet, left me to the employment of Other seekers--desperate for gain, Starving for gold. You, the Turk, the Swede, the German, the Scot ... You the Ashanti, the Yoruba, the Kru, bought Sold, stolen, arriving on a nightmare Praying for a dream. Here, root yourselves beside me. I am the Tree planted by the River, Which will not be moved. I, the Rock, I the River, I the Tree I am yours--your Passages have been paid. Lift up your faces, you have a piercing need For this bright morning dawning for you. History, despite its wrenching pain, Cannot be unlived, and if faced With courage, need not be lived again. Lift up your eyes upon The day breaking for you. Give birth again To the dream. Women, children, men, Take it into the palms of your hands. Mold it into the shape of your most Private need. Sculpt it into The image of your most public self. Lift up your hearts Each new hour holds new chances For new beginnings. Do not be wedded forever To fear, yoked eternally To brutishness. The horizon leans forward, Offering you space to place new steps of change. Here, on the pulse of this fine day You may have the courage To look up and out upon me, the Rock, the River, the Tree, your country. No less to Midas than the mendicant. No less to you now than the mastodon then. Here on the pulse of this new day You may have the grace to look up and out And into your sister's eyes, into Your brother's face, your country And say simply Very simply With hope Good morning."

Bukowski Reads his Poem "The Crunch" (Love is a dog from Hell - 1977 Collection)
 
03:41
The Crunch is a poem by Charles Bukowski. This version is one of three different versions and was published in 1977, part of the collection 'Love Is a Dog from Hell' . The original version of the crunch was published in Second Coming magazine in 1977. The Crunch Love is a Dog From Hell - 1977 --- too much too little too fat too thin or nobody. laughter or tears haters lovers strangers with faces like the backs of thumb tacks armies running through streets of blood waving winebottles bayoneting and fucking virgins. an old guy in a cheap room with a photograph of M. Monroe. there is a loneliness in this world so great that you can see it in the slow movement of the hands of a clock people so tired mutilated either by love or no love. people just are not good to each other one on one. the rich are not good to the rich the poor are not good to the poor. we are afraid. our educational system tells us that we can all be big-ass winners. it hasn't told us about the gutters or the suicides. or the terror of one person aching in one place alone untouched unspoken to watering a plant. people are not good to each other. people are not good to each other. people are not good to each other. I suppose they never will be. I don't ask them to be. but sometimes I think about it. the beads will swing the clouds will cloud and the killer will behead the child like taking a bite out of an ice cream cone. too much too little too fat too thin or nobody more haters than lovers. people are not good to each other. perhaps if they were our deaths would not be so sad. meanwhile I look at young girls stems flowers of chance. there must be a way. surely there must be a way that we have not yet though of. who put this brain inside of me? it cries it demands it says that there is a chance. it will not say "no."

Tirpitz: The Death of Germany's Last Super Battleship
 
02:56
A public domain video The death of the battleship Tirpitz, Bismarck’s sister ship. After the Royal Navy’s bloody high seas campaign to kill the mighty Bismarck, the Allies were left with an uncomfortable truth―the German behemoth had a twin sister. Slightly larger than her sibling, the Tirpitz was equally capable of destroying any other battleship afloat, as well as wreak havoc on Allied troop and supply convoys. After three and a half years of allied attacks to remove Germany’s last serious surface threat, the Germans kept Tirpitz hidden within fjords along the Norwegian coast, forcing the British to assume the offensive. After several unsuccessful attempts to destroy the mighty Tirpitz, it was not until November 1944 that the Tirpitz finally succumbed to British aircraft armed with 10,000-lb Tallboy bombs, the ship capsizing at last with the loss of 1,000 sailors.

They run hospices and homes for people with HIV/AIDS, leprosy and tuberculosis; soup kitchens; dispensaries and mobile clinics; children's and family counselling programmes; orphanages; and schools. Members must adhere to the vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience, as well as a fourth vow, to give "wholehearted free service to the poorest of the poor". Mother Teresa was the recipient of numerous honours, including the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize. On 19 October 2003, she was beatified as "Blessed Teresa of Calcutta". A controversial figure both during her life and after her death, Mother Teresa was widely admired by many for her charitable works. She was both praised and criticised for her anti-abortion views. She also received criticism for conditions in the hospices she ran...

New York City's Last Elevated Train: The Third Avenue El
 
02:39
A public domain video The IRT Third Avenue Line, commonly known as the Third Avenue El and the Bronx El, was an elevated railway in Manhattan and the Bronx, New York City. Originally operated by the New York Elevated Railway, an independent railway company, it was acquired by the Interborough Rapid Transit Company (IRT) and eventually became part of the New York City subway system. The first segment of the line, with service at most stations, opened from South Ferry to Grand Central Depot on August 26, 1878. Service was extended to Harlem in Manhattan on December 30. Service in Manhattan was phased out in the early 1950s and closed completely on May 12, 1955, and ended in the Bronx on April 29, 1973. The Third Avenue El was the last elevated line to operate in Manhattan, other than the 1 train on the IRT Broadway–Seventh Avenue Line (which has elevated sections between 122nd and 135th Streets and north of Dyckman Street), and was a frequent backdrop for movies. Service on the Second, Sixth and Ninth Avenue El lines was terminated in 1942, 1938, and 1940, respectively. source: wikipedia.org Subscribe - never miss a video! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_S8ZlDCRkMMgc7ciw8X-hg The 20th Century Time Machine takes you back in time to the most important historical events of the past century.

Orville Wright, Wilbur Wright, Original Footage!!! First Flight Mlitary Airplane 1909
 
06:15
The Wright Brothers sold their first airplane to the United States Army in August 1909. Their initial airplane (Model A) was tested at Fort Myer, Virginia on August 20th 1908. After a series of successful test flights, the plane crashed on the 17th of September 1908, severely injuring Orville Wright and killing his passenger, Lt. T. Selfridge. Despite the disaster, the military was convinced the Wright Brothers had designed a capable airplane and extended their contract for one more year. The Wrights designed another craft, the Wright Military Flyer. The Military Flyer differed from the Model A in that it had a rather shorter wingspan, longer propellers, set higher off the ground, and had a different gear ratio in the power transmission. These changes were made to increase the speed of the craft. The motor was identical to the one used the year before, however produced slightly additional horsepower as a result of modification. The footage is from the original test flight in July 27, 1909.

Reagan and Gorbachev Joking Around During the INF Treaty (1987)
 
01:28
A public domain video Reagan and Gorbachev Joking Around During the INF Treaty in 1987. At one point of the press conference during the INF treaty Reagan uses the phrase "trust, but verify" Trust, but verify is a translation of a Russian proverb, which became well known when used by President Ronald Reagan in the context of nuclear disarmament. Suzanne Massie, a writer in Russia, met with President Ronald Reagan many times between 1984 and 1987. She taught him the Russian proverb, "Доверяй, но проверяй" {Doveryai, no proveryai} (trust, but verify) advising him that "The Russians like to talk in proverbs. It would be nice of you to know a few. You are an actor – you can learn them very quickly." The proverb was adopted as a signature phrase by Reagan, who subsequently used it frequently when discussing U.S. relations with the Soviet Union. After Reagan used the phrase to emphasize "the extensive verification procedures that would enable both sides to monitor compliance with the treaty", at the signing of the INF Treaty, on 8 December 1987, his counterpart General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev responded: "You repeat that at every meeting," to which Reagan answered "I like it." While Reagan quoted Russian proverbs, Mr. Gorbachev was fond of quoting Ralph Waldo Emerson.

James Baldwin: "You’re the ‘nigger’, baby, it isn’t me." (1963)
 
03:01
This video is from a documentary film produced and directed by KQED (TV)'s Richard O. Moore for National Educational Television in 1963 called "Take this Hammer" The film follows author and activist James Baldwin in the spring of 1963, as he's driven around San Francisco to meet with members of the local African American community... "While I know this, and anyone who has ever tried to live knows this, that what you say about somebody else, anybody else, reveals you. What I think of you as a being is dictated by my own necessities, my own psychology, my own fears and desires. I’m not describing you when I talk about you; I’m describing me. Now here in this country we have something called a ‘nigger’, who doesn’t in such terms, I beg you to remark, exist in any other country in the world. We have invented the ‘nigger’. I didn’t invent him. White people invented him. I’ve always known, I had to know by the time I was 17-years-old, that what you were describing was not me, and what you were afraid of was not me. It had to be something else. You had invented it, so it had to be something you were afraid of and you invested me with. And if that’s so, no matter what you’ve done to me, I can say to you this, and I mean it, I know you can’t do any more and I’ve got nothing to lose. And I know, and I’ve always known, and really always, that’s part of the agony, I’ve always known that I’m not a ‘nigger.’ But if I am not the ‘nigger', and if it’s true that your invention reveals you, then who is the ‘nigger’? I am not the victim here. I know one thing from another. I was born, I’m gonna suffer, and I’m gonna to die. So the only way you can get through life is to know the worst things about it. I know that... I was personally more important than anything else, anything else. I learned this because I had to learn it. But you still think, I gather, that the ‘nigger’ is necessary. But he’s unnecessary to me, so he must be necessary to you. I give you your problem back. You’re the ‘nigger’, baby, it isn’t me."

John F Kennedy Assassination Real Footage: November 22, 1963
 
00:35
The Original JFK Assassination Video Footage Film The Zapruder film is a silent, color motion picture sequence shot by private citizen Abraham Zapruder with a home-movie camera, as U.S. President John F. Kennedy's motorcade passed through Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963, thereby unexpectedly capturing the President's assassination. Frame 150 from the Zapruder film. Kennedy's limousine has just turned onto Elm Street, moments before the first shot, and the President is apparently waving. Although it is not the only film of the shooting, it has been called the most complete, giving a relatively clear view from a somewhat elevated position on the side from which the president's head wound is visible. It was an important part of the Warren Commission hearings and all subsequent investigations of the assassination and is one of the most studied pieces of film in history. Of greatest notoriety is the film's capture of the fatal shot to President Kennedy's head when his presidential limousine was almost exactly in front of, and slightly below, Zapruder's position.

A public domain video. The 369th Infantry Regiment was an infantry regiment that consisted of African Americans and Puerto Ricans and was known for being the first African American regiment to serve with the American Expeditionary Forces during World War I. Any African American that wanted to fight in the war had to enlist in the French or Canadian armies. The regiment was nicknamed the Harlem Hellfighters, the Black Rattlers and the Men of Bronze, which was given to the regiment by the French. The nickname "Hell Fighters" was given to them by the Germans due to their toughness and that they never lost a man through capture, lost a trench or a foot of ground to the enemy. The "Harlem Hellfighters" were the first all black regiment that helped change the American public's opinion on African American soldiers and helped pave the way for future African American soldiers.

Einstein Explains his Famous Formula E = mc2 (Equivalence of Energy and Matter)
 
01:01
Einstein Explains the Equivalence of Energy and Matter In physics, mass–energy equivalence states that anything having mass has an equivalent amount of energy and vice versa, with these fundamental quantities directly relating to one another by Albert Einstein's famous formula: E=mc2 This formula states that the equivalent energy (E) can be calculated as the mass (m) multiplied by the speed of light (c = about 3×108 m/s) squared. Similarly, anything having energy exhibits a corresponding mass m given by its energy E divided by the speed of light squared c². Because the speed of light is a very large number in everyday units, the formula implies that even an everyday object at rest with a modest amount of mass has a very large amount of energy intrinsically. Chemical, nuclear, and other energy transformations may cause a system to lose some of its energy content (and thus some corresponding mass), releasing it as light (radiant) or thermal energy for example.

He is best known in popular culture for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2 (which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation"). He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect.

Paul Hornung Leads the Packers Through Mud and Rain over the 49ers (December 1960-Silent)

Hornung, scored the lone touchdown of the day, kicked a point after and also booted two field goals. The Packers were so good on defense that they never allowed San Francisco more than one foot inside their territory. The two teams, unable to make much ground during the heavy rain of the first half, went scoreless until 52 seconds before the intermission. Green Bay Packers got on the board when Hornung kicked a mud-soaked ball 38 yards for a field goal. The Packer defense, with end Bill Quinlan and tackles Henry Jordan and Dave Hanner held strong and kept San Francisco deep in its own territory. Then Green Bay started a drive from its own 16 and in nine plays drove the 84 yards to score. The concluding run was Hornung's 28-yarder behind a horde of blockers.

When a Wise Man Speaks: Lee Kuan Yew, Singapore's Founding Father (Sunday, Oct. 22, 1967)
 
25:53
An interview in which Lee Kuan Yew (LKY), the first Prime Minister of Singapore, spoke on the Vietnam War and the problems of Southeast Asia in 1967 on Meet the Press. Lee Kuan Yew, informally known by his initials LKY, was the first Prime Minister of Singapore, governing for three decades. Lee is recognised as the nation's founding father, with the country described as transitioning from the "third world to first world in a single generation" under his leadership. Lee eschewed populist policies in favor of pragmatic long-term social and economic measures. With meritocracy and multiracialism as governing principles, Lee made English the common language to integrate its immigrant society and to facilitate trade with the West, whilst mandating bilingualism in schools to preserve students' mother tongue and ethnic identity. Lee's rule was criticised, for curtailing civil liberties (public protests, media control) and bringing libel suits against political opponents. He argued that such disciplinary measures were necessary for political stability, which together with rule of law, were essential for economic progress. On 23 March 2015, Lee Kuan Yew died of severe pneumonia, at 91. In a week of national mourning, 1.7 million residents and guests paid tribute to him at his lying-in-state at Parliament House and at community tribute sites around the island.

The Bay of Pigs Invasion Against Castro: A Perfect Failure For the U.S.
 
28:47
A public domain video The failure at the Bay of Pigs was not merely the failure of the Cuban exiles. It was a failure of United States policy, which led to a failure of United States power. Clearly the United States had the naked power to destroy Castro, but it could not ignore world opinion and use this power. It could not risk the repercussions that might follow the slaughter of Cubans and the occupation of Cuba by United States forces, could not risk the possible escalation to nuclear war. One alternative that suggested itself was indirect intervention, carried out secretly under CIA supervision. Monday, April 17th, Bay of Pigs, Cuba. The first units of the brigade reach the beach without opposition. In Havana, Castro begins to react to the invasion. But in the first hours, the brigade pushes inland, Castro has not yet been able to bring up his tanks and heavy guns. Over the beach are 12 B-26’s providing air cover; they are attacked by the free Castro jets, five of them are shot down. The brigade’s two supply ships and its communication ship are sunk. Within a few minutes, the men on the beach have lost their air cover and their supply. By afternoon, Castro is pressing the brigade hard. They say they have been promised air support by their American advisors. Washington says none was ever promised. At 3:45 p.m. Wednesday April 19th, resistance ends. The American planned, financed, framed and backed invasion of Cuba is now a total failure. This was probably the low point, the worst moment for John F. Kennedy and his three years in the White House. As president, he took full responsibility for this failure of United States policy, this misuse of United States power. Although the total blame was clearly not his.

Apollo 11 Moon Landing NASA Original Footage. One Small Step for Man, One Giant Leap for Mankind!!!
 
07:10
A magnificent documentary on the Apollo 11 launch and moon landing with footage of JFK's "We Choose To Go To The Moon" legendary speech. Apollo 11 was the first spaceflight that landed humans on the Moon. Americans Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on July 20, 1969, at 20:18 UTC. Armstrong became the first to step onto the lunar surface six hours later on July 21 at 02:56 UTC. Armstrong spent about two and a half hours outside the spacecraft, and together with Aldrin collected 47.5 pounds (21.5 kg) of lunar material for return to Earth. The third member of the mission, Michael Collins, piloted the command spacecraft alone in lunar orbit until Armstrong and Aldrin returned to it just under a day later for the trip back to Earth.

The Best 12 Hours of Sebring Ever: Steve McQueen Finishes 2nd With Broken Foot
 
22:34
A public domain video This film captures the excitement of the 1970 12-hour endurance race at Sebring. It features Mario Andretti, Dan Gurney, Jackie Ickx, Pedro Rodriguez, and celebrity driver/actor Steve McQueen. There is non-stop racing action as Ferrari driver Mario Andretti barely escapes with the lead over Steve McQueen, driving with a cast on his broken foot. Produced by Triangle Productions in association with the Automobile Racing Club of Florida. “Steve McQueen at the 1970 Sebring 12 Hour Race drove with his left foot in a cast due to a motorcycle accident. He had to have the foot wrapped in asbestos cloth because the plaster cast was transferring too much engine heat to his foot. His crew is re-wrapping his foot making final adjustments to make it as comfortable as possible.” –Louis Galanos The 1970 running is considered by many to be the best 12 Hours of Sebring ever. This was the first 12 Hours of Sebring where the cars used a rolling start, a procedure similar to the start which is used at the Indianapolis 500, and has been used at every Sebring 12 Hours to this day. Before 1970, the drivers did a traditional Le Mans start, but the events of the 1969 Le Mans race in which English driver John Woolfe was killed driving his Porsche 917 after a crash in which he did not have his seatbelts fastened led the governing body to ban Le Mans starts on grounds of safety.

"One Week": Buster Keaton's First Silent Film Production
 
22:19
A public domain video. One Week is a 1920 American short comedy film starring comedian Buster Keaton, the first film to be released made by Keaton on his own; Keaton had worked with Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle for a number of years. The film was written and directed by Keaton and Edward F. Cline, and runs for 19 minutes. Sybil Seely co-stars. The High Sign had been filmed prior to One Week, but Keaton considered it an inferior effort to debut with, and released it the following year when he was convalescing from an injury. Guitarist Bill Frisell released a soundtrack to the movie in 1995 on his album The High Sign/One Week. In 2008, One Week was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". The story involves two newlyweds, Keaton and Seely, who receive a build-it-yourself house as a wedding gift. The house can be built, supposedly, in "one week". A rejected suitor secretly re-numbers packing crates. The movie recounts Keaton's struggle to assemble the house according to this new "arrangement". The end result is depicted in the picture. As if this were not enough, Keaton finds he has built his house on the wrong site and has to move it. The movie reaches its tense climax when the house becomes stuck on railroad tracks. Keaton and Seely try to move it out the way of an oncoming train, which eventually passes on the neighboring track. As the couple look relieved, the house is immediately struck and demolished by another train coming the other way. Keaton stares at the scene, places a 'For Sale' sign with the heap (attaching the building instructions) and walks off with Seely.

Abraham Lincoln Assassination Eyewitness: “I Saw Lincoln Shot” (1956)
 
05:30
A public domain video In 1956, on an episode of the then-popular game show "I've Got a Secret," 96-year-old Samuel J. Seymour, whispered to the show’s host Garry Moore: “I saw John Wilkes Booth shoot Abraham Lincoln.” over ninety years earlier, at Washington D.C.'s Ford Theatre. At the time the show was filmed in 1956, he was the only living witness to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln on April 14, 1865. As a five year old boy, his godmother took him to Ford’s Theatre and it was then he heard the shot ring out on that fateful night for former President Lincoln. His most vivid memory of that night was seeing John Wilkes Booth falling off the balcony after the shooting. Ironically, Mr. Seymour died just two months after being on the tv show and 91 years to the day that he witnessed the historical assassination.

In 1949, Mao came to power through the Communist revolution in China. In 1950 China occupied Tibet and Dalai Lama, who was ruling Tibet, came under the control of the Communist Party. The communist party was anti-religion and abolished Tibetan cultural practices, which lead to severe conflict. In 1959 there was a massive uprising in Tibet which forced the Chinese Communist Party to impose even harsher rule on the mountainous region. Close to 100,000 people lost their lives in the rebellion. In 1959, Dalai Lama escaped to India.

The Night a UNIVAC Computer Predicted The Next President: NOV. 4, 1952
 
03:05
In 1952, a UNIVAC (universal automatic computer) I mainframe computer was used to predict the result of the US presidential election. The UNIVAC was in Philadelphia where statistician Max Woodbury worked on algorithms and entered the data, and CBS' Charles Collingwood was reporting. It was connected to a teletype machine at the CBS studios in New York City, where Eckert was on hand to explain how it worked and Walter Cronkite was on the air. The election pitted General Dwight D Eisenhower against Illinois Governor Adlai Stevenson, and opinion polls were favoring Stevenson. The computer's early prediction, made before polls were even closed on the West Coast, was that Eisenhower would collect 438 electoral votes to Stevenson's 93, and had 100-1 odds of winning. Convinced it was wrong, CBS suggested the computer wasn't working and had Woodbury rework his algorithm. The computer then produced 8-7 odds in favor of Eisenhower, which CBS was comfortable reporting. Woodbury soon realized he missed a 0 when re-entering the data, and the original 100-1 odds were actually correct. When the final results came in it was 442 to 89 for Eisenhower, less than one percent off of the UNIVAC's original prediction. Later that night Collingwood had to admit that the computer was accurate and they had covered it up. The event was a great success and UNIVAC soon became a generic term for computer. The UNIVAC and ENIAC also inspired the term "brainiac" for a particularly intelligent person.

The Final Battle of the Battleship Bismarck (1941)
 
01:44
A public domain video The last battle of the German battleship Bismarck took place in the Atlantic Ocean approximately 300 nmi (350 mi; 560 km) west of Brest, France, on 26–27 May 1941. Although it was a decisive action between capital ships, it has no generally accepted name. On 24 May, before the final action, Bismarck's fuel tanks were damaged and several machinery compartments, including a boiler room, were flooded in the Battle of the Denmark Strait. Her intention was to reach the port of Brest for repair. Late in the day Bismarck briefly turned on her pursuers (Prince of Wales and the heavy cruisers Norfolk and Suffolk) to cover the escape of her companion, the heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen to continue further into the Atlantic. Early on 25 May the British forces lost contact with Bismarck, which headed ESE towards France while the British searched NE, presuming she was returning to Norway. She was rediscovered in the late morning of 26 May by a Catalina flying boat from No. 209 Squadron RAF and subsequently shadowed by aircraft from Force H steaming north from Gibraltar. The final action consisted of four main phases. The first phase late on the 26th consisted of air strikes by torpedo bombers from the British aircraft carrier Ark Royal, which disabled Bismarck's steering gear, jamming her rudders in a turning position and preventing her escape. The second phase was the shadowing and harassment of Bismarck during the night of 26/27 May by British destroyers, with no serious damage to any ship. The third phase on the morning of 27 May was an attack by the British battleships King George V and Rodney supported by cruisers. After about 100 minutes of fighting, Bismarck was sunk by the combined effects of shellfire, torpedo hits and deliberate scuttling. On the British side, Rodney was lightly damaged by near-misses and by the blast effects of her own guns. British warships rescued 111 survivors from Bismarck before being obliged to withdraw because of an apparent U-boat sighting, leaving several hundred men to their fate. In the final phase the withdrawing British ships were attacked on 27 May by aircraft of the Luftwaffe, resulting in the loss of the destroyer HMS Mashona, and German ships and U-boats arrived later at the scene of the sinking and saved five more survivors.

Legendary Psychiatrist Carl Jung in a Fascinating Rare Interview  (1959)
 
37:46
Carl Gustav Jung (26 July 1875 – 6 June 1961) was a Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst who founded analytical psychology. His work has been influential not only in psychiatry but also in anthropology, archaeology, literature, philosophy and religious studies. As a notable research scientist based at the famous Burghölzli hospital, under Eugen Bleuler, he came to the attention of the Viennese founder of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud. The two men conducted a lengthy correspondence and collaborated on an initially joint vision of human psychology. Freud saw in the younger man the potential heir he had been seeking to carry on his "new science" of psychoanalysis. Jung's researches and personal vision, however, made it impossible for him to bend to his older colleague's dogma and a breach became inevitable. This break was to have historic as well as painful personal repercussions that have lasted to this day. Jung was also an artist, craftsman and builder as well as a prolific writer. Many of his works were not published until after his death and some are still awaiting publication. Among the central concepts of analytical psychology is individuation—the lifelong psychological process of differentiation of the self out of each individual's conscious and unconscious elements. Jung considered it to be the main task of human development. He created some of the best known psychological concepts, including synchronicity, archetypal phenomena, the collective unconscious, the psychological complex, and extraversion and introversion.

Amelia Earhart's Famous Speech: "A Woman's Place in Science"
 
04:08
In 1935, Amelia Earhart delivered this address as part of a radio broadcast on a woman’s place in science. Amelia Mary Earhart was an American aviation pioneer and author. Earhart was the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She received the U.S. Distinguished Flying Cross for this accomplishment. She set many other records, wrote best-selling books about her flying experiences and was instrumental in the formation of The Ninety-Nines, an organization for female pilots. In 1935, Earhart became a visiting faculty member at Purdue University as an advisor to aeronautical engineering and a career counselor to women students. She was also a member of the National Woman's Party and an early supporter of the Equal Rights Amendment. During an attempt to make a circumnavigational flight of the globe in 1937 in a Purdue-funded Lockheed Model 10 Electra, Earhart disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean near Howland Island. Fascination with her life, career and disappearance continues to this day.
