DIY Tesla Coil Gun | Hack N Mod: "The beloved Tesla coil – now in portable form!  We’ve seen loads of Tesla coils over the years, from desktop size to absurdly massive, but this is the first portable, battery powered version we’ve seen.  Fun fact: you can even buy Tesla Coils on eBay!  The evil mad scientist shown above uses a transformer to convert battery power into high voltage, high frequency, low current electricity.  And of course, the results look incredible:"

MooPig Free Range Grazing Rights Department :: "Unemployment Benefits"

Dire Straits
Captured by Pat Darnell | June 29, 2013 | Bryan TX

North Carolina Becomes First State To Eliminate Unemployment Benefits: "RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — With changes to its unemployment law taking effect this weekend, North Carolina not only is cutting benefits for those who file new claims, it will become the first state disqualified from a federal compensation program for the long-term jobless."

'via Blog this'

"Like many states, North Carolina had racked up the debt by borrowing from Washington after its unemployment fund was drained by jobless benefits during the Great Recession. (EMERY P. DALESIO JUNE 28, 2013. LINK) ... "

Whoops! That one slipped by: define "the Great Recession."
" ... A period of economic downturn experienced by the United States beginning in December 2007. The downturn is not described as depression since the severity has not encompassed the levels of the Great Depression in the 1930's. The US market housing decline is pointed out to be one of the causes of the Great Recession. ... "
Why is it politicians, in this case the GOP Governor of North Carolina, make policy decisions that adversely impact their very own constituents, their voters? Discontinuance of UC is in fact directly related to the Great Recession, as an after shock upon the demagoguery. Blimey.

The Emergency Unemployment Compensation was due to run out in January in North Carolina. Instead the Governor ended it this month, to "ease the burden on businesses." As in all cases political, two out of three questions are ignored: 1) Is it legal ... 2) Is it the right thing to do? ... 3) Who benefits from this? Follow the money.

MooPig relies on secondary research for its existence. When are we going to see the "free press" digging into the money trails for all these jokers in leadership positions?

MooPig Olympic History Nanosecond :: "Black Power 1968 Olympics"

Did it Make a Difference?
Retracted by Pat Darnell  |  July 24, 2013  |  Bryan TX

[Picture LINK]  ... in the same stadium from which 6,200 pigeons swooped skyward to signify the opening of the "Peace Olympics," Sprinters Tommie Smith and John Carlos, two disaffected black athletes from the U.S. put on a public display of petulance that sparked one of the most unpleasant controversies in Olympic history and turned the high drama of the games into theater of the absurd. Smith had just won the 200-meter dash in a record-breaking 19.8 ...

Iconic Images of Human Rights Violations (43): Black Power Salute at the 1968 Olympics | P.a.p.-Blog // Human Rights Etc.: "The two U.S. athletes received their medals shoeless, but wearing black socks, to represent black poverty. Carlos wore a necklace of beads which he described “were for those individuals that were lynched, or killed and that no-one said a prayer for, that were hung and tarred. It was for those thrown off the side of the boats in the middle passage.

As they left the podium they were booed by the crowd. Time magazine wrote “Faster, Higher, Stronger” is the motto of the Olympic Games. “Angrier, nastier, uglier” better describes the scene in Mexico City last week. (source)

Carlos and Smith were stripped of their medals, ejected from the Olympic Village, and returned to an unfriendly welcome in the U.S."

MooPig Tech Successes :: "What ever Happened to the Ozone Hole?"

Chlorine Destroys Ozone
Mashed from sources by Pat Darnell  |  July 21, 2013  |  Bryan TX

[Picture LINK]

Observers have noticed since 1974 that certain chemicals send our ozone into chaos. Ozone in the upper atmosphere absorbs harmful ultraviolet rays from the sun. It is a chemical thing. Ozone is a "variant" of oxygen, after all, and susceptible to chemical reaction. In the mid-1980's, ozone awareness was raised in the international consciousness. It was discovered that there was in fact a huge "hole" in the ozone in the layers over the frozen deserts of Antarctica.

What the researchers call “happy time” comes in the afternoon when the tides return and they gather — along with a rotating cadre of graduate students — outside the Winter Palace on an old dock laid out on the lawn to compare notes, gossip and have a snack. "What ever happened to the ozone hole?" they ask.

We Observers then have a larger system to inspect, if we are to find answers elsewhere. One author says the number of possible systems is similar to trying to count every particle of a gas filling a room, "to determine how the particles are distributed." Entropy models proposed are still crude and can not calculate the possibilities in this example. However, even gross observations using entropy detection has produced good results.

Why should we be concerned with a thin, life-sustaining, layer of atmosphere made of rare Oxygen (O3) molecules, anyway? "Intergalactic space lacks both the particles to form us, and the energy to sustain us. It is self-evident that we live in one of the regions that are life friendly. In the multiverse, too, many regions have properties that are incompatible with the existence of observers: They might be entirely empty, or their physical laws preclude any complex structures. (RAPHAEL BOUSSO. October 17, 2008. LINK) ..." And, a central tenet of thermodynamics is the “second law,” which states that a quantity called entropy cannot decrease.

Whatever Happened to the Ozone Hole?: "The ozone layer lies between about 9.3 and 18.6 miles (15 and 30 kilometers) above Earth's surface. This blanket of ozone, or O3, blocks most of the sun's high-frequency ultraviolet rays. These UV rays can cause skin cancer and cataracts in humans, as well as reproductive problems in fish, crabs, frogs, and even in the single-celled phytoplankton at the bottom of the ocean food chain.

Ozone is created naturally when oxygen molecules (O2) high in the atmosphere get broken by sunlight into two free oxygen atoms. A free atom can then bond with an unbroken O2 molecule, and ozone is born." (Brian Handwerk. National Geographic News. Published May 5, 2010. HERE) ... "

For example:
" ... Local ozone reductions approaching 50% in magnitude were observed during the Antarctic spring in the 11–13 and 25–30 km altitude regions over South Pole and McMurdo Stations in 1991. These reductions, at altitudes where depletion has not been observed previously, resulted in a late September total ozone column 10–15% lower than previous years. The added depletion in the lower stratosphere was observed to coincide with penetration into the polar vortex of highly enhanced concentrations of aerosol particles from volcanic activity in 1991. (D. J. Hofmann*, S. J. Oltmans*, J. M. Harris*, S. Solomon†, T. Deshler‡ & B. J. Johnson‡. 24 September 1992. LINK) ... "
"If we had just kept letting CFCs increase at a pretty nominal rate, characteristic of the 1970s, the decreased ozone levels of the hole would have eventually covered the entire planet," said atmospheric physicist Paul Newman of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. (Handwerk. May 5, 2010)

'via Blog this'

Ozone is created naturally when oxygen molecules (O2) high in the atmosphere get broken by sunlight into two free oxygen atoms. A free atom can then bond with an unbroken O2 molecule, and ozone is born.

Ozone is unstable, however, and it's easily broken up by trace elements.

In that rarefied air, ultraviolet light breaks the molecular bonds in CFCs and free chlorine atoms get released. Chlorine then destroys ozone molecules by "stealing" their oxygen atoms.

The disturbing discovery set the stage for an environmental triumph: the Montreal Protocol of 1987.

Now a complete rebound seems imminent. Some scientists project that by 2080 global ozone will return to 1950s levels.

No one single person, or entity, has a personal expansive Body Of Knowledge, BOK available to handle all of these issues by one's self: -- like available to an MD, Climate Specialist, Environmental Scientist, Economist, and Editor, and so on -- all wrapped into ONE ???? NOT LIKELY !!

Each specialty attracts persons from that field. That is the beauty of a Project Body Of Knowledge ... right? Like that synergy thing that Bucky Fuller delineated, that the total is greater than the sum of the parts... Although we here at MooPig Enterprises like to think we can handle any information that explodes onto our screens, the Ozone question is a system of a downer being turned upright.

MooPig Home School Department :: "John Taylor Gatto"

The Fourth Purpose
Mashed by Pat Darnell  |  July 18, 2013  |  Bryan TX

[Picture LINK]

While experts carry on about the "enigma of compulsory education" in the USA, John Taylor Gatto is making a documentary about it. Our education drama is a spoiler because Education is paid for by public funds, and free to all the children. If it were not "free," believe me, parents and children would fight in the streets for the chance to go to school.

Deciding on how to spend the mountain of money that is our public education system has become an accountant's trick. Our politicians who pose as school administrators parlay all day long on "problems of our school system in terms of engineering solutions—longer school days, Phonics vs. Whole Word, merit pay for teachers, metal detectors, bigger districts, smaller class size."

The article suggests that we have lost any real purpose of education: "if the first three purposes are to create good people, good citizens, and good lives, as history suggests, then why have we allowed the Managerial Fourth Purpose to dominate what is really occurring in our 100,000 school buildings?. (2000-2003 The Odysseus Group. LINK) ..." Sometimes it seems the purpose of education is to produce non-voting taxpayers, and that's all.

In 1991, Mr. Gatto resigned from teaching in New York because "He didn't want to harm children anymore." We think that those who have fought the good fight of American education, and lost battles, usually tend to their wounds by writing an expose on the system. One of these whistle-blowers should have by now produced the definitive rebuttal to our Public Education debacle.
(2000-2003 The Odysseus Group. LINK)
" ... The Fourth Purpose, a 3-part, 6-hour documentary series will be the first film to ask this fundamental question. The series will tackle the American school system: present, past, and future—its anomalies, its history, and the alternatives. The idea is to throw a bucket of ice-cold water in the faces of pundits, experts, and bureaucrats. The intention is to radically shift the context within which people view schooling by offering a ‘unified field theory’ of how and why our school system is so deeply dysfunctional. And then, once we have everyone’s attention, to show what people might do about it. ... "
John Taylor Gatto Biography: "Gatto's office is in New York City, his home in Oxford, New York, where he is currently at work on a documentary film about the nature of modern schooling entitled The Fourth Purpose, with his friend and former student, Roland Legiardi-Laura. For more information about this film, visit The Fourth Purpose.

Gatto has been married for forty years to the same woman, and has two grown children and a cat. He hopes to build a rural retreat and library for the use of families pondering local and personal issues of school reform. John is available as a speaker. "

Brazilian man dies after cow falls through his roof on top of him - Telegraph: "Joao Maria de Souza, 45, had been in bed with his wife Leni when the animal fell through the ceiling of their home in Caratinga, southeast Brazil."

'via Blog this'
" ... Mr de Souza's brother-in-law Carlos Correa told Brazil's Hoje em Dia newspaper: "Being crushed by a cow in your bed is the last way you expect to leave this earth. "But in my view it wasn't the cow that killed our Joao, it was the unacceptable time he spent waiting to be examined." (Matt Roper. 13 Jul 2013. LINK) ... "

The cow is believed to have escaped from a nearby farm and climbed onto the roof of the couple's house, which backs onto a steep hill -- on Wednesday night. The corrugated roof immediately gave way and the one-and-a-half-ton animal fell eight feet onto Mr de Souza's side of the bed.
" ... His grieving mother, Maria de Souza, told Brazil's SuperCanal TV channel: "I didn't bring my son up to be killed by a falling cow." (Matt Roper. 13 Jul 2013. LINK) ... "
MooPig Enterprises send its sincerest condolences to the Souza family.


MooPig Tech Coroner :: "The Death of Paid Television"

$2.2 trillion Entertainment Industry about to Metamorphose
by Pat Darnell  |  July 15, 2013  |  Bryan TX

When you say "Content," you have said it all. Everyone still wants content. Name all the Tech/Entertainment industries that have been found dead on arrival since the Internet began: Record Companies, big Box Retail Shopping, Telephone, Stockbroking, Bookstores, Travel Agencies, ... what's next?

Our Internet has the ability to transform - transfigure - change - transmute - convert businesses' modes of operation to the point of "transform or get out."

But everyone still listens to music; everyone still watches movies; everyone still trades stocks, everyone still reads newspapers ... just not the way they did last century. Guess what -- everyone still wants to watch television.

And everyone [58%] hates cable TV.

Using your imagination can you imagine a different world of TV? Google Fiber, Apple TV, and Amazon have prepared for this Fall, 2013, to be their declaration of war to win in your living room. A lack of imagination will limit you to doing it the old way, and not being satisfied.

Ask yourself: "Why would I need cable to watch TV?"

New choices ... watching shows online, game consoles can put your favorite shows on your TV. Shows can be watched on mobile devices. Special rabbit ears will get you sports events, circumnavigating cable.

The next generation will not watch TV on cable.

MooPig Financial Trends :: "Budget Surplus June 2013"

Blended by Pat Darnell  |  July 13, 2013  |  Bryan TX

Major Events from 1940 to 2012

Great Depression - 1929 to 1938
WWII - 1939 to 1945
Korean War - 1950 to 1953
Vietnam War - 1955 to 1975 (US combat units deployed in 1965)
Oil Embargo - 1973
Soviet Union Collapses - 1991
Gulf War - 1990-1991
9/11 - September 11th, 2001
Iraq War - 2003 to 2011
Global Financial Meltdown - 2007 to ???

In the last 69 years, the U.S. government has managed to post 12 surpluses, with the most recent coming in 2001.

The largest uninterrupted stretch of surpluses came between 1920 and 1930. This eventually came to an end after the government spent billions of dollars combating the Great Depression.

The largest uninterrupted stretch of deficits came between 1970 and 1997.

President Running A Budget Surplus - GOP In A Panic As They Witness Election Hopes Evaporate -: "Here comes the fiscal cliff fight again, with the GOP ready to take the nation hostage in order to hurt the middle class for their corporate overseas masters…. but wait a second, instead of running a budget deficit, the federal government is running… a surplus!! Queue up the horrified GOP leadership, who just lost their one trump card. Rather than facing the debt crisis with the next election over a year away, thanks to these budget surpluses, now the GOP is faced with the real problem of having the debt ceiling fight turned into a midterm election issue."
