Spain Euthanized Its Coal Mines. This Is How Miners Are Taking It (HBO)
The coal industry is dying a slow death in many parts of the world. But in Spain, the end was swift — and government-mandated. The country's version of a "Green New Deal" for coal included a compensation package for miners, which has received international praise from unions and environmental groups as other countries are looking to quit the fossil fuel. Through a deal struck between the Spanish government and coal mining companies and unions, almost all the country’s mines closed by the end of 2018, and around 1,500 miners were laid off. The phase-out agreement set aside 250 million euros for funding retirement packages, retraining and environmental restoration. The deal spurred protests around Spain in December. But outside the country, Spain’s handling of the coal phase-out has been praised. It’s an example of what progressive politicians are calling a “fair transition” — funds and policies to help workers who are laid off when the government cracks down on fossil fuels. In the U.S., supporters of a “Green New Deal” have already called for a similar fair transition package aimed at American coal workers. Antonio Gomez Souto, a 43-year-old miner who’s worked at the La Escondida coal mine since he was 17, said that for him at least, the deal was adequate. “I'm part of a pre-retirement plan for this year,” he said after his last Monday shift at the mine. “Pre-retirement packages are enough to get by and stop worrying about it.” Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News Check out VICE News for more: http://vicenews.com Follow VICE News here: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/vicenews Twitter: https://twitter.com/vicenews Tumblr: http://vicenews.tumblr.com/ Instagram: http://instagram.com/vicenews More videos from the VICE network: https://www.fb.com/vicevideo

Meet the Company Teaching Coal Miners To Code
Kentucky's Bitsource has a novel idea for a tech workforce: Laid-off coal industry professionals. Eastern Kentucky, once an epicenter of the U.S. coal industry, has seen jobs steadily dwindle in recent decades. Mining work — increasingly the work of engineers, rather than blue collar laborers — dwindled by an additional 2,000 jobs in 2015, marking the lowest mining employment in the region since the great depression. But one company in the small city Pikeville —population 7,000 — is capitalizing on a technical-minded, eager labor force to create a burgeoning tech industry. Called Bitsource, the company hired its staff with the unique goal of "teaching miners how to code." “The mind of a coal miner or an engineer, you know, they’re very technical. It’s not like what probably most people think about it with the pickaxe and shovel,” Bitsource’s president, Justin Hall, told Vocativ. “It really wasn’t that much of a transition in the thinking style and the behavior. It was just, you know, you go from working outside all the time to working inside.” Any tech startup wants to begin with a small workforce of driven, capable, and affordable employees. But BitSource is extraordinarily unique in that it deliberately sought out former miners and coal industry engineers to do the work. In 2014, it put out a call for workers in the region with technical skill who wanted to try a new career. They received more than 8,000 applications, and eventually whittled that down to 11 applicants. One found himself unable to stick with the program and quit. The rest are still Bitsource employees. Hall, a former artist-turned self-taught programmer, says he developed the curriculum from scratch. “How do we teach somebody who maybe only knows how to upload to Facebook and send an email, but [who] also knows other high-tech equipment? How do we transition into coding?” he asked. So he developed a grueling 22-week apprenticeship program. “I didn’t know anybody in here’s names until three months in,” joked Garland Couch, a Bitsource developer who worked as a mining maintenance planner for 12 years before being laid off. “We started with HTML of course, then learned CSS. We went from there to Javascript, rolled in some jQuery, learned jQuery, PHP, C Sharp. We’re doing a little bit of SQL stuff now.” The work, so far most of it local, is coming in. They're behind splashy sites for the Pikeville Tourism Department, the Eastern Kentucky Concentrated Employment Program, industrial construction company Jigsaw, and local news station East Kentucky Broadcasting. Like most of Appalachian coal country, Pike County, where Pikeville is the county seat, suffers from enormous unemployment — currently 8 percent, compared to a 4.9 percent national average. But Bitsource’s long-term plan, Hall says, is to steadily expand and have the area become “Silicon Holler” — a widely recognized hub for a burgeoning tech economy. “We want an ecosystem here, a tech ecosystem, to be able to thrive. Entrepreneurs, makerspaces, those kind of things,” he said. “It’s not always been the most precious resources, coal — it’s been the people that mined it.”

Mining Battles: Uranium, Coal, and Gold
Find more Earth Focus content at https://www.linktv.org/earthfocus (Earth Focus: Episode 67) An impoverished former mining community in Colorado hopes that a proposed uranium mill will bring jobs and prosperity until environmentalists step in to try to stop it. Who gets to decide? Filmmaker Suzan Beraza documents the debate in her new film Uranium Drive-In. Rhinos are killed for their horn. But now in South Africa they face a new threat -- coal. Plans for an open cast coal mine on the border of Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park, home to the largest population in the world of the once endangered white rhino, may bring economic development. However, these plans will also worsen air and water quality and increase poaching and crime. Jeff Barbee reports from South Africa. The indigenous people in Ecuador's Kimsakocha wetlands rely on the land's water for their livelihood -- agriculture and livestock production. But there is gold under the water and foreign mining companies are out to get it. The local people mount a fierce opposition. "Resistance will not end, we will not give up even if we are in prison," says local community leader Carlos Perez. Constantino de Miguel reports from Ecuador.

This report investigates what is being named the biggest disaster in Brazil's mining history. A horror mudslide swept through the towns and villages in the Gualaxo River Valley, destroying homes, businesses and taking the lives of 19 people. A tailings dam, holding back more than 50 million cubic metres of mining waste collapsed, unleashing a wave of mud several metres high. "The mud dragged me down, I would come up, it would take me down again... I screamed but nobody answered", remembers Priscila Barros, who was pulled four kilometers under the deadly slurry. The mud, containing lead, arsenic and other toxic chemicals, continued down river all the way to the Atlantic coast 600km away. "This mud wave has killed anything that was alive in these water systems", explains Marilene Ramos of the Brazilian Environment Authority. Now Brazilian police are seeking the arrest of 12 of Samarco's executives for negligent homicide and crimes against the environment. "A dam doesn't break by chance. There is repeated, continual negligence in the actions of a company owned by Vale and BHP", says prosecutor Carlos Eduardo Pinto.

Exploring Active Mines: Alleghany's Sixteen to One Mine
Located in the California mountain town of Alleghany, the Sixteen to One Mine is now the oldest gold mining corporation in the United States and with more than 26 miles of underground workings, it is a seriously impressive operation! This remarkably rich lode gold mine was located in 1896 by a man named Thomas Bradbury in his backyard (we should all be so lucky). More than a million ounces of gold have been extracted from the Sixteen to One Mine over the course of its existence (an amount worth well over a billion US dollars at current gold prices) and there is still much more gold inside of the mine waiting to be found... The gold inside of the Sixteen to One Mine does not follow a set pattern and is instead found in rich pockets randomly scattered across the quartz vein that the mine follows. Some of the pockets of gold are as small as an ounce or two and others contain tens of thousands of ounces of gold. The very existence of the Sixteen to One Mine revolves around locating these pockets of gold. The lower levels of the mine are presently flooded, but they are being dewatered at this time as the Sixteen to One Mine has two new gold detectors with proven successes in identifying gold in quartz previously undetected with older models. The potential of this new technology has inspired the company to pay the price of dewatering and rehabilitating the lower levels of the mine in order to pursue the gold they know is down there. No one has walked inside of the 3000 level since 1939 and so one can only imagine what might be found down there now. At present rates of pumping, the water in the lower levels of the mine is dropping at the rate of about 100 feet per month and access to the 3000 level may be restored by as soon as June of 2018. On this visit, we entered through the 800 Crosscut and first proceeded to the 49 Winze. Following this, we then headed deeper inside of the mine before dropping down through multiple levels to an incredible cavern that the miners carved out inside of the Sixteen to One Mine - the company calls this “The Ballroom” for its immense size and acoustics… For more information on the Sixteen to One Mine or even to buy physical gold or stock shares from the company, one can visit their website at: http://www.origsix.com/ ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality!

However, abandoned mine sites have a lot working against them – nature, vandals, scrappers and various government agencies… The old prospectors and miners that used to roam our lonely mountains and toil away deep underground are disappearing quickly as well. These losses finally caught our attention and we felt compelled to make an effort to document as many of the ghost towns and abandoned mines that we could before that niche of our history is gone forever. But, guess what? We have fun doing it! This is exploring history firsthand – bushwhacking down steep canyons and over rough mountains, figuring out the techniques the miners used and the equipment they worked with, seeing the innovations they came up with, discovering lost mines that no one has been in for a hundred years, wandering through ghost towns where the only sound is the wind... These journeys allow a feeling of connection to a time when the world was a very different place. And I’d love to think that in some small way we are paying tribute to those hardy miners that worked these mines before we were even born. So, yes, in short, we are adit addicts… I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

Old coal mines transformed into holiday lake resort
(19 Jun 2018) LEADIN: Germany is celebrating the opening of a new lake this summer, one of dozens created by filling former coal mines. The goal of this massive environmental project is to create Europe's biggest artificial lake district, transforming a former industrial area into a tourist destination. STORYLINE: A sweeping view of these vast lakes shows little sign of what this region used to be. But this was once mining country, and these lakes are all man-made. It's a huge project that's transformed the old industrial landscape into a new lake district. The open cast Meuro mine that once dominated the landscape, providing jobs to thousands of workers, has vanished. Only a floating excavator plucking sunken trees out of the water hints at the effort that's gone into reshaping this corner of eastern Germany over the past decades. It's part of a massive environmental clean up in Lusatia, a region that once provided much of the coal which heated German homes and powered the country's industrial rise. Lignite is a soft brown coal that often lies close to the surface, meaning it is easiest to just remove layer upon layer from above rather than dig underground shafts. "This is a region that was shaped by strip mining for hundreds of years," says Kathrin Winkler, a native of Lusatia197, who is the head of Lusatia Lakes Tourism Association.           "That means we had gigantic open-cast mines here. We have extracted the coal from the deeper layers in the area. We have broken down gigantic open pit mines." As a young woman growing up in communist East Germany, Winkler worked in the Meuro mine for a year. Now it's her job to promote Lusatia as the next big tourist destination, billing it as a tranquil lakeside retreat for weary city dwellers from nearby Berlin and Dresden. The idea would have seemed outlandish to anyone looking at the alien, lifeless landscape not so long ago. But over the past two decades the man-made craters have been slowly resculpted to create 26 lakes connected by 13 canals and hundreds of miles of cycle track. Instead of coal-fired power plants, the horizons are now dotted with wind turbines and fields full of solar panels. Much of the task of turning brownfield sites into the kind of "blooming landscapes" Germany's late chancellor, Helmut Kohl, promised East Germans shortly before reunification has fallen to a state-owned company, LMBV. "It's a unique task we've been given here," says spokesperson Uwe Steinhuber. "Among other things, we are creating 25,000 hectares of new blue eyes, i.e. new lake landscapes in the two districts in Lusatia and central Germany. You could say that it's the biggest landscape reconstruction in Europe that we're operating. There's no script for this job, no complete task description and also no experience that you can rely on." Steinhuber had just begun a career in the East German diplomatic service when the Berlin Wall collapsed, and with it the life plans of millions who had grown up in the knowledge that, if little else, the communist regime would guarantee them work for life. Of the more than 90,000 jobs that existed in Lusatia's coal mines three decades ago, only a few thousand remain. Some former miners have found work in restoring the depleted countryside, a task German law requires mining companies to set money aside for. So far, the company has spent 10.6 billion euros (12.5 billion US dollars) removing the legacy of industry and creating 25,000 hectares (61,775 acres) of lakes.

Brunner coal mines
The Brunner Mine was a coal mine on the West Coast of the South Island in New Zealand. The Brunner Mine was one of several mines situated on the banks of the Grey River, at an area known as "Coal Gorge" between the townships of Stillwater and Taylorville. The town of Brunner (formerly Brunnerton) is nearby. Coal was discovered on the West Coast by Nelson surveyor Thomas Brunner "during the most arduous of his journeys in search of more agricultural land".[1] The coal was of extremely high quality and it did not take long before it attracted interest. And, of course, "The West Coast had the added attraction of gold mining and it seems that the employment opportunity offered by coal mining was in the difficult economic times not one to be turned down".[1] Brunner Mine disaster[edit] Main article: Brunner Mine disaster In March 1896 an explosion deep in the mine killed all 65 miners inside, and was labelled the worst mining disaster in New Zealand’s history. It seemed most likely that the explosion was caused by firedamp, a common hazard in coal mines, where a pocket of methane gas is accidentally ignited and explodes.

Crude L.A.: California's Urban Oil Fields
For nearly four months, the Aliso Canyon methane leak just north of Los Angeles spewed several thousand metric tons of potent greenhouse gases into the air before it was finally sealed in February. The disaster displaced residents, forced schools to close, and incited widespread distrust in the local government's regulation of the oil and gas industry. Few people realize that Los Angeles was actually built on oil. The Aliso Canyon natural gas facility is just one of thousands of oil and gas drilling and storage sites located in and around the city, which is also home to the country's largest urban oil field.

Randsburg - California Ghost Towns
California Travel Tips host Veronica Hill (http://www.CaliforniaTravelExpert.com) heads into the Mojave Desert to check out Randsburg Ghost Town. Located in Kern County along scenic Highway 395, Randsburg is one of California's few "living" ghost towns, home to approximately 80 residents. The Rand Mining District was established in 1895, when gold was discovered in the Rand mountains. It's estimated that Randsburg produced more than $60 million in gold during its boom. There also was plenty of tungsten ore and silver. One of the most productive gold mines was the Yellow Aster, which yielded $25 million between 1895 and 1933. Be sure to check out the Randsburg Jail, located at the entrance to town, then head inside the Rand Desert Museum, where you'll find mining exhibits, memorabilia and artifacts from the Rand Mining District. Be sure to say hi to curator J. Bart Parker, and tell him we said hello! Most of Randsburg's surviving Old West buildings are located along Butte Avenue. The Santa Barbara Catholic Church dates back to 1904, but the first church was built here in 1897. The Randsburg Post Office dates back to 1896. On holidays, local thespians don period costumes for plays and melodramas at the Randsburg Opera House. The Randsburg General Store is the hub of action in Randsburg, especially during the fall when the weather cools off and ATV riders arrive. You have to order the Black Bart. It's a signature item here! Built in 1896 as the Jones Drug Store, this popular hangout is a huge draw for tourists who fuel up on burgers and sandwiches, washed down with a phosphate soda. The building still has its original tin ceilings, light fixtures and soda fountain dating back to 1904. For a bit of wild west nostalgia, head into the White House Saloon, which hosted miners, cowboys, Indians and clampers during the boom years; or check out The Joint, a local watering hole that's been here since the 1950s. If you want to stay the night, Goat's Sky Ranch is a B&B with miner's cabin rentals, or you can check into the Randsburg Inn , which sits on the former site of the Orpheum Theater, My Place Dance Hall and Commercial Hotel. One thing to consider — Randsburg literally becomes a ghost town during the week. The best time to visit is on the weekend, when most businesses are operating. Thanks for joining us in Randsburg.

2017 Inductee, Gary Goldberg, Amer. Mining Hall of Fame
The Mining Foundation of the Southwest is pleased to announce that Gary J. Goldberg, President, CEO & Director, Newmont Mining Corporation, was inducted into the American Mining Hall of Fame on 2 December 2017 in Tucson, Arizona. Gary J. Goldberg was appointed President and Chief Executive Officer and joined the Board of Directors of Newmont Mining Corporation on March 1, 2013. He previously served as President and Chief Operating Officer since July 2012 and as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer since December 2011. Newmont is a leading mining company with gold and copper operations in the United States, Australia, Ghana, Peru and Suriname. The company is headquartered in Denver, Colorado, and has about 28,000 employees and contractors worldwide. Goldberg is credited with turning Newmont’s performance around through a disciplined focus on value over volume. The company now leads the gold sector in value creation and growth potential. This performance is the result of successful efforts to improve underlying costs, efficiencies and technical performance; to optimize the company’s asset portfolio and growth pipeline; and to strengthen the balance sheet. Newmont has also reduced its injury rates by 52 percent, improved its social and environmental standards and practices, and increased female and national representation in its workforce under Goldberg’s leadership. He received a lifetime achievement award for his contribution to safety in the mining industry from the Society of Metallurgical Engineers in 2014. Prior to joining Newmont, Goldberg gained more than 30 years’ experience in the mining industry through leadership roles in coal, gold, copper and industrial minerals businesses. Before joining Newmont, he served as President and Chief Executive Officer of Rio Tinto Minerals (RTM), where he was responsible for 19 mines and 29 processing facilities producing industrial mineral products. During his time at RTM, he improved earnings by 50 percent and reduced workplace injuries by 40 percent. He also served as Chairman of the National Mining Association in the United States from 2008 to 2010, where he led the CEO's Safety Task Force and launched the CORESafety® initiative, with an aggressive goal of eliminating fatalities and reducing mining’s injury rate by 50 percent over the next five years. Prior to this appointment, Goldberg served as President and CEO of US Borax. During his tenure, Borax was twice named the safest large mining operation in the United States by the federal Mine Safety & Health Administration and became the first mining company to receive the California Governor’s Environmental and Economic Leadership Award. He was also appointed to the Board of Directors of the California Climate Action Registry following Borax being named the first mining company to report its emissions and one of only 40 companies statewide to earn the distinction of Climate Action Leader™ under this rigorous program. Before joining the industrial minerals sector, Goldberg was Managing Director of Coal & Allied Industries Limited in New South Wales, Australia, one of the world’s leading coal businesses. Under Goldberg’s direction, Coal & Allied received a national environmental award for its work to restore native habitats and achieve sustainable land use in Australia. He served as director of Port Waratah Coal Services in Newcastle as well as the Australian Coal Association Sustainable Development Program Ltd., and as a member of the New South Wales Minerals Council. Goldberg was also appointed to the Australian Government’s Business Roundtable on Sustainable Development. Prior to his appointment as head of Coal & Allied, Goldberg was President and Chief Executive Officer of Kennecott Energy, headquartered in Gillette, Wyoming. He held numerous other leadership roles throughout the Rio Tinto Group, including Mining Manager for Kennecott Utah Copper; General Manager of Colowyo Coal Company; and Mining Executive reporting to the Chief Executive of Rio Tinto’s Gold and Other Minerals product group based in London, England. Goldberg holds a bachelor’s of science degree in Mining Engineering from the University of Wisconsin – Platteville, and a master’s of business administration degree from the University of Utah.

Turkey Soma coal mine blast: At least 274 miners confirmed dead, hundreds trapped inside
The death toll in the accident at a coal mine in Soma, Turkey has reached at least 274, making the disaster the worst in the country's history. Eighty more miners are injured while hundreds are still trapped deep underground. The miners have been trapped since Wednesday, following an explosion and fire in a mine shaft between 1 to 2 kilometres deep. CNN reports that the explosion was caused by an electrical fault inside a transformer and is believed to have caused a fire inside the mine shaft. The BBC says the blast triggered a power outage, which made the lifts unusable, leaving hundreds of miners stranded underground. Most of the deaths are believed to have been caused by suffocation, and there is little hope for the miners still trapped inside. To help them officials have turned an outlet pipe into a clean air pipe to allow fresh air to enter in places where there is no fire, CNN reported. But although oxygen is being pumped into the shaft, rescue efforts have been repeatedly suspended due to high levels of carbon monoxide. Nearly 450 miners have been rescued. As many as 200 are still missing, according to Voice of America. Turkish newspaper Today's Zaman says that mining accidents are common in Turkey, which is plagued by poor safety conditions. In 1992, in what was considered until now the worst mining disaster, 270 miners were killed near Zonguldak on the Black Sea. The International Labor Organization ranked Turkey the third worst in the world for worker deaths in 2012, according to Voice of America.

Toxic Waste Spill in North Carolina: Coal Ash (Part 1)
Coal ash, which contains many of the world's worst carcinogens, is what's left over when coal is burnt for electricity. An estimated 113 million tons of coal ash are produced annually in the US, and stored in almost every state — some of it literally in people's backyards. With very little government oversight and few safeguards in place, toxic chemicals have been known to leak from these storage sites and into nearby communities, contaminating drinking water and making residents sick. On February 2, 2014, up to 39,000 tons of coal ash and 27 million gallons of contaminated water spilled out into the Dan River in North Carolina after a pipe broke underneath a coal ash pond at a Duke Energy power plant. The environmental disaster thrust Duke Energy, the country’s largest electricity company, into the spotlight, revealing a history of violations and inadequate oversight of ponds at all of its plants across the state. In part one, VICE News travels to North Carolina to visit a river that’s been poisoned with arsenic from a nearby Duke Energy site, speak with a resident who has found toxic heavy metals in her drinking water, and question a Duke Energy spokesperson about the power company’s policies.

In Search of The Utah Railway - From Midvale to Helper
We follow the tracks of the Utah Railway from Helper to Midvale and wander through the shops. A fun look at Helper, a 1950 era gas station and a Rockolla juke box! A bit of Utah railroad history, the coal mines of Carbon County and some major screwing around! ****************************************************************** Utah Railway has operated coal trains from mines in east central Utah to a connection with Union Pacific at Provo, Utah, since 1917. Many writers over the years have assumed that since Utah Railway operated Union Pacific-design locomotives, cars, and cabooses, Union Pacific must have been either full or part owner of this coal hauling line. This has never been the case. Utah Railway was organized in 1912 as the Utah Coal Railway, and construction began immediately. Utah Railway's parent company was United States Fuel Co., a subsidiary of United States Smelting, Refining & Mining Co., which owned extensive coal lands in east central Utah. The line was completed in 1914, and between 1914 and 1917 the railroad was operated under contract by Denver & Rio Grande. In 1917, Utah Railway took over its own operations due to the company's dissatisfaction with the level of service that D&RG was providing. The main difficulty was D&RG's inability to provide sufficient empty coal cars to fill the shipping needs of Utah Railway's parent company, United States Fuel Co. Union Pacific's involvement came because Utah Railway was a major source of interchange traffic for UP subsidiary San Pedro, Los Angeles & Salt Lake at Provo, Utah. To replace the D&RG operations, Utah Railway approached Union Pacific for help in setting up its operational and maintenance organizations, including designing and purchasing rolling stock. When Utah Railway began operating its own trains on November 1, 1917, after giving a one year notice as required under the D&RG contract, its new operating department put into use six 2-10-2 and three 2-8-8-0s built to Union Pacific design. The new equipment also included 1,500 Utah Coal Route drop bottom gondolas, jointly owned between Utah Railway and the newly renamed Los Angeles & Salt Lake (then still jointly owned by UP's OSL subsidiary, and the line's original organizer, Senator William Clark). http://utahrails.net ********************************************************************* See more at http://oscaleguys.com/oscaleguys.html http://guyshobbyshop.com/ eBay store Toy Man Television -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "The Trains of Santa Cruz California" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nv0S8Sa18mY -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Exploring an Unstable, Dangerous Talc Mine and the Quirky Trona Fish Rocks
Once again I found myself back underground in another unstable, crumbling talc mine. This was a small mining operation that was worked over the years by many different companies. I found an inclined shaft leading to a short drift tunnel that led to the bottom of a shallow vertical pit. As with most talc mines, the timbering in this one was extensive and heavy. Before hiking to the talc mine, I stopped a few miles outside of Trona, California to see and climb on the unusual Fish Rocks that have been around since 1938. While there, I caught a huge, four-engine Navy jet flying low overhead. In fact, it's trajectory was so highly banked that I thought it was going to crash! Managed to get most of the jet's passage on video. While hiking across the desert, I noticed that both the Joshua Trees and the Yucca Trees were in full bloom with fruit. The Native Americans ate these fruits as part of their diet, so at the end of this video I cut open both fruits to show what they are like inside. Yes, they are edible!

Salt Mining Underground 1958
Salt mines are generally thought to be relatively safe places to work (as opposed to coal mines). However tragedies can and have occurred. On March 5, 1968, 21 miners died in a fire that broke out in the Cargill salt mine on Belle Isle, Louisiana. This and other mine disasters in the late 1960s led to passage of better mine safety laws in the US. For more on this tragedy go to the article, Belle Isle Tragedy, By George Morris, Advocate staff writer, published: Mar 9, 2008 at: http://www.2theadvocate.com/entertainment/16386906.html?index=1&c=y .

"I'm really concerned about the legacy we're leaving for the next generation, and the generations to come. When we invest in technologies like solar power, not only does it protect the environment, and reduce our impact on climate change, it drives innovation. Innovation is in the heart of California. As we move forward and put forth new legislation to protect the environment, not only will it ensure our legacy for future generations, but it will ensure that there is an opportunity for California's scientists, California's industry, and California's research to bring forth the next generation of innovative technology to protect our environment, drive our economy, and ultimately, improve our quality of life." – Mr. Griess "As your next state senator, you can count on my to do three things with respect to water. Look for good storage south of the Tracy pumps. Build and improve water recycling, so that we use it more than once. And finally, to bring on new technologies like solar thermal desalination." - Gabe Griess Antioch is one of the oldest towns in California, having been founded in 1850. The year following the discovery of gold, there was a plague that overtook the city and wiped out most of the population. The town was founded by two brothers, William and Joseph Smith, who named the town Smith’s Landing. In 1851, the town's new minister persuaded the residents to change the name of the town to Antioch, for the Biblical city of Antioch, Turkey. Around 1859, coal was discovered in several places in the hills south of Antioch and coal mining formed the first substantial business apart from farming and dairying by the inhabitants of this community. This new industry resulted in the founding of the towns of Nortonville, Somersville, Stewartsville, and Black Diamond (now Pittsburg, California), and added greatly to the economic activity of the Antioch area. The Empire Coal Company was formed by John C. Rouse and George Hawxhurst in 1876, which built a railroad that passed from Antioch toward the mines over what is now "F Street" (formerly Kimball Street). However, later on, both the mine and the railroad passed into the hands of the Belshaw brothers. The mines have long ago ceased operation, and the railroad tracks have been dug up, though the building that served as the Antioch terminus of the railroad still stands on the corner of F Street and Fourth Street, and the grading and trestles still remain much as they were in those early days. In 1863, a great excitement arose over the discovery of copper ore near Antioch.

Bank CEOs Grilled By The House Financial Services Committee
A decade after the financial crisis, the chiefs of the largest U.S. banks faced a grilling from lawmakers on everything from income inequality to their ties to politically controversial industries. The spectacle -- meant to send a message that the Democratic-controlled House is ratcheting up oversight of the industry -- was enough to bring Lloyd Blankfein, who stepped down as chief executive officer of Goldman Sachs Group Inc. last year, off the sidelines. “Boy, I really miss my old job!!!,” he wrote on Twitter. With lawmakers on the Financial Services Committee each getting five minutes to speak, the seven bank executives were consistently cut off while trying to answer a barrage of quick and often unconnected questions. Topics spanned the political and banking spectrum, as ranking member Patrick McHenry called the gathering “a hearing in search of a headline.” The roughly six hours of testimony touched on the financial crisis, probes, capital rules, wages, interest rates, the economy, the Federal Reserve, China, climate change, gender equality, diversity, cybersecurity and cryptocurrencies, as well as how banks serve rural areas, small businesses, millennials, immigrants in the DACA program, gunmakers, prisons, fossil-fuel companies, car buyers, home buyers and people living in Guam. Among the more dramatic moments, Texas Democrat Al Green asked the lineup of white, male CEOs whether any thought their successor is “likely” to be a woman or member of a minority group. As five raised their hands, JPMorgan Chase & Co. CEO Jamie Dimon shook his head, unfolded his arms and looked over at Morgan Stanley’s James Gorman, the only other executive who kept his arm down. Green moved on to a question about banks and slavery before the CEOs could elaborate on their gestures. All of them committed to turning over diversity plans to the panel, with Gorman saying he’s focused on creating a sense of “belonging” at his firm. The CEOs also took turns fielding questions about appointments President Donald Trump has said he’ll make to the Fed board. Most of the executives said it’s important the Fed remain politically independent. Dimon noted he has enormous faith in Fed Chairman Jay Powell, but said some beliefs expressed by Heritage Foundation economist Stephen Moore would give him pause. There were also a few announcements: Dimon said JPMorgan would consider developing a firm policy on dealing with gun manufacturers and supporting reform to overdraft fees. State Street Corp. CEO Ron O’Hanley called cyber risk a “clear and present danger” that requires banks and regulators to cooperate. Yet by the end, the proceedings hadn’t resulted in any meaningful calls for new legislation, or pledges by bank leaders to make dramatic changes. The executives said they will clarify their stances on dealing with industries like firearms manufacturers and coal miners, and said they will fine-tune policies that currently require customers to settle disputes through arbitration instead of taking them to court. Shares of all seven companies represented at the hearing climbed, adding about $6 billion to their total market value. It was a move similar to when Blankfein famously faced a Senate hearing nine years ago, watching his company gain $549 million as lawmakers took turns lashing its business. If lawmakers sought to bring the leader of a major bank down a notch, their decision to host seven at once made it harder. Because of scheduling conflicts, Wells Fargo & Co. sent then-CEO Tim Sloan to field questions by himself at a hearing before the same committee last month, where he endured more than four hours of questions about his efforts to fix consumer abuses. Sloan abruptly resigned days later, saying he didn’t want his leadership to be a distraction for the company. On Wednesday, lawmakers repeatedly bemoaned the difficulty of digging into weighty industry issues in the time allotted. At one point, Wisconsin Republican Sean Duffy asked if he could have 10 seconds back after the committee’s chair, Maxine Waters, interjected to ask Bank of America Corp.’s Brian Moynihan to speak louder. Many questions were aimed at Dimon, who runs the nation’s largest bank and was first to enter the room. Waters opened the session by addressing a running joke in Washington that other CEOs might skate through by letting him do all the talking. Everyone would needs to speak for himself, she said, quipping, “We know he’s smart.” Katie Porter, a freshman Democrat from California and former consumer-protection lawyer, pressed Dimon on behalf of a mother working in a Chase branch and struggling to make ends meet. But the exchange was interrupted when Porter was barred from holding up a small whiteboard to lay out the family’s finances. Dimon said he would be happy to give some advice to the employee.

Haunted Whipple Company Store
This Coal Mining company store was one of 4, that served as the store where all the miners would buy food supplies and whatever else they needed. Since the miners were only paid in what is called company "script" the only place they could buy goods was from these types of stores, needless to say the store could charge whatever they wanted and it boiled down to slave labor back in those days, this particular coal company also used hired gunmen similiar to pinkerton men to quell any possible uprisings by the miners and people were often killed if they talked of striking. There were several shootouts at this particular store and the bullet holes still remain at the front entrance of this store the last of its kind. There were also rumors that this store had what is known as a rape room where women were abused. There is also a story of a little girl that was mistakenly killed by the hired guns and that she is actually buried in the basement of this store. The store also had its own morgue and embalming room , when miners were killed in accidents or by other means they would make the coffins extra small and bend the bodies over all in order to spend less money in wood for the coffins. This location has many reasons that could cause paranormal activity and I believe I experienced some of that activity while there.Real ghost activity EVP ITC.
