Support Our Channel : https://www.patreon.com/PeriscopeFilm Presented by Caterpillar Tractor Co. and narrated by Walter Cronkite, THE ROAD AHEAD traces the birth of the interstate highway system beginning in June 29, 1956 with the passage of the Federal Aid Highway Act and the launching of the Interstate Defense Highway Program. This was the largest construction project in the history of the world, to build highways spanning the North American continent. At 3:00, you will see the first highway built at St. Charles, Missouri. As Cronkite states at 3:45, the investment was estimated at $50 billion dollars through 1975. The era of the automobile had truly arrived once the construction was complete. At 4:50, Cronkite shows a map showing the interstate highway system and discusses the assignment of numbers to the various highways constituting 40,000 miles of highway. The building of these highways would constitute a more efficient, safer way of travel that would unite the nation in a way never seen before. At 6:23, the Marine Studios in Florida is seen, and at 7:00 the New Jersey Turnpike. At 13:50, slow traffic is seen on Main Street and the fact that freeways will make main street less congested and safer is emphasized. At 18:30, the argument is made that freeways will provide freedom of movement and allow people to live in the suburbs. At 20:51, early computers are shown used to make calculations about the highway system. The Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956, popularly known as the National Interstate and Defense Highways Act (Public Law 84-627), was enacted on June 29, 1956, when President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the bill into law. With an original authorization of US$25 billion for the construction of 41,000 miles (66,000 km) of the Interstate Highway System supposedly over a 10-year period, it was the largest public works project in American history through that time. The addition of the term "Defense" in the Act's title was for two reasons: First, some of the original cost was diverted from defense funds. Secondly, most US Air Force bases have a direct link to the system. The purpose was to provide access in order to defend them during an attack. All of these links were in the original plans, although some, such as Wright Patterson were not connected up in the 1950s, but only somewhat later. The money for the Interstate Highway and Defense Highways was handled in a Highway Trust Fund that paid for 90 percent of highway construction costs with the states required to pay the remaining 10 percent. It was expected that the money would be generated through new taxes on fuel, automobiles, trucks, and tires. As a matter of practice, the federal portion of the cost of the Interstate Highway System has been paid for by taxes on gasoline and diesel fuel.

Archdukes, Cynicism, and World War I: Crash Course World History #36
In which John Green teaches you about the war that was supposed to end all wars. Instead, it solved nothing and set the stage for the world to be back at war just a couple of decades later. As an added bonus, World War I changed the way people look at the world, and normalized cynicism and irony. John will teach you how the assassination of an Austrian Archduke kicked off a new kind of war that involved more nations and more people than any war that came before. New technology like machine guns, airplanes, tanks, and poison gas made the killing more efficient than ever. Trench warfare and modern weapons led to battles in which tens of thousands of soldiers were killed in a day, with no ground gained for either side. World War I washed away the last vestiges of 19th century Romanticism and paved the way for the 20th century modernism that we all know and find to be cold and off-putting. While there may not be much upside to WWI, at least it inspired George M. Cohan to write the awesome song, "Over There."

David Wilcock | Corey Goode: The Antarctic Atlantis [MUST SEE LIVE DISCLOSURE!]
Are we about to hear that ancient ruins have been found in Antarctica? Is there an Alliance working to defeat the greatest threat humanity has ever faced on earth? Could the Antarctic Atlantis be part of a full or partial disclosure? Join David Wilcock on a thrill ride of discovery, beginning with Part One where he presents data on the Secret Space Program and shares the stage with legendary insider Corey Goode. This is the best public summary David and Corey have done of this amazing story that has captivated the UFO community. Part Two begins at the 53-minute mark, with David connecting the dots between intel from multiple insiders to arrive at a stunning conclusion -- that we are on the verge of major new releases of information that will transform everything we thought we knew about life on earth. A civilization of "Pre-Adamite" giants with elongated skulls appears to have crash-landed on a continent we now call Antarctica some 55,000 years ago. Various groups we collectively call the Alliance are working to defeat the Cabal / Illuminati / New World Order, thus making the headlines crazier by the day. If the Alliance succeeds, their plan is now to begin the disclosure process by telling us there was a civilization in Antarctica. We are already seeing multiple, compelling hints of this in corporate media. Find out what the insiders are telling us and help spread the word! This is a two-and-a-half-hour excerpt from David's Friday and Saturday presentations at the Conscious Life Expo 2017. In their original form they run six hours. David also spoke for three hours on Monday, presenting an incredible new model of the Cosmos based on sacred geometry -- and proving that the Sun is going to release a DNA-transforming burst of energy in our near future.

Decolonizing Language Revitalization
September 25, 2013 - How has Eurocentric anthropology and linguistics affected the way we interpret our elders and ancestors who share their cultural knowledge with foreign researchers? Join us for a presentation with Khelsilem Rivers and April Charlo, indigenous peoples from community-based and cultural revitalization backgrounds, who will be discussing decolonization of language revitalization. Their presentation and open dialogue will address the context of rapid language loss and decline, and how colonization has affected or is embedded in the strategies of revitalization. In an effort to revitalize Indigenous languages, communities may have unknowingly adopted or assimilated colonized ways of thinking as they invest interest and attempt to repair or restore ties to culture and language. Are we learning to speak Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Nēhiyawēwin, Kanien'kéha, et all with an English-mind or are we learning to speak Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Nēhiyawēwin, Kanien'kéha with a Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Nēhiyaw, Kanien'keháka mind? Indigenous languages represent one of the darkest ways in which ethnocide and cultural genocide have occurred. It is expected in the next twenty-five years over 700 of the worlds Indigenous languages will be forgotten. In the Vancouver area alone, the two Indigenous languages are considered critical endangered; Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) language has five to seven fluent speakers and hən̓q̓əmin̓əm has one fluent speaker left. Decolonizing Language Revitalization aims to put forward perspectives of shifting values, cultural understandings, and impacts on community. It is the stories we tell ourselves (as a people) that impacts who we believe we are, and then who we become. But if the stories -- even including, or especially the Indigenous ones -- are filtered through colonialism, we have become a different people because of it. April Charlo from Bitterroot Salish people and is a member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, Montana. Khelsilem Rivers is a Sḵwx̱wú7mesh-Kwakwa̱ka̱'wakw language revitalization activist from Vancouver.

Michael Cohen Testimony live before the House Oversight Committee
President Trump's former personal attorney and fixer Michael Cohen had harsh words for his former employer during public testimony before a House congressional panel Wednesday. "He is a racist. He is a con man. He is a cheat," Cohen, testifying before the House Oversight Committee, said in his opening statement about Mr. Trump. Cohen's testimony comes as Washington prepares for a final report from special counsel Robert Mueller's nearly two-year investigation into Russian interference in U.S. elections and possible coordination between Trump campaign associates and the Russian government. The irony of Cohen's testimony two months before he reports to federal prison for lying to Congress was not lost on lawmakers. "I've made it abundantly clear to Mr. Cohen if he comes here today, and he does not tell the truth, I will be the first to refer those untruthful statements to the DOJ," Chairman Elijah Cummings, a Maryland Democrat, said when opening the hearing.

Richard Wagamese - Indian Horse
Presented by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. In this emotional tale of Saul Indian Horse, Richard Wagamese tells the realistic story of a man whose life is drastically changed by one of Canada's most painful histories. When Saul was a child he was taken away from his family and forced into an Indian Residential School where he witnessed and experienced unimaginable abuses at the hands of the school's educators. In spite of the harrowing atrocities, it is at the school that Saul discovers his love of hockey, a game that, for a short time, serves as a means of escape. Saul's talent leads to a draft with a minor league team and a spot on Team Canada during the 1972 Canada-Soviet Summit Series. However, as Saul grows into a man, he struggles with racism and alcohol addiction. Saul's tumultuous adulthood eventually leads him back to his roots, where he confronts his past and begins a new journey towards healing. Richard Wagamese is an Ojibway author from the Wabaseemoong First Nation in Northwestern Ontario. He is the author of several fiction and non-fiction works including For Joshua: An Ojibway Father Teaches His Son, Runaway Dreams, and Indian Horse. Wagamese has also been a journalist and, in 1991, became the first Aboriginal Canadian to receive the National Newspaper Award for Column Writing. His most recent novel, Indian Horse, was chosen as the winner of First Nation Communities Read, and is on the Globe and Mail's bestseller's list as well as the Canadian Booksellers Association's bestseller's list. Among his awards, Wagamese's memoir One Native Life was listed as one of The Globe and Mail's 100 Best Books of 2008. In 2010 he accepted an Honorary Doctor of Letters from Thompson Rivers University. Wagamese currently lives just outside of Kamloops, BC with his wife, Debra Powell, and Molly the Story Dog.

Green groups slam Polish govt for planning pro-coal summit at same time as climate conference
Environmental groups have branded the Polish government a "fossil" over its plans to host a pro-coal summit at the same time as staging the COP19 (Conference of the Parties) climate change conference. Though no major decisions are expected at the COP19 conference, which began in Warsaw on Monday, progress achieved at the summit could be an indicator of the world's chances of reaching a deal in 2015 in Paris. That's the new watershed year in the UN-led process for a new global warming pact after a 2009 summit in Copenhagen ended in discord. Climate activists hence criticised an announcement by the World Coal Association and Poland's Economy Ministry that a summit is to be held on November 18 and 19, billed as "the coal industry's most important event of the year." Organisers say the International Coal and Climate Summit will bring together coal industry executives, policy-makers and others to "discuss the role of coal in the global economy, in the context of the climate change agenda." Coal, oil and gas companies normally keep a low profile during the annual UN climate talks, which are aimed at reigning in the carbon emissions that scientists say are a major driver of global warming. But Polish officials say that coal, which accounts for more than 80 percent of Poland's electricity generation, won't go away anytime soon and needs to be a key part of the climate debate. The Climate Action Network (CAN), an umbrella group of environmental organisations, condemned the Poles for inviting companies they claim are major polluters - to sponsor COP and writing "mad postings" on the official COP19 website linked to melting Arctic ice. CAN, which includes Greenpeace, also highlighted a new survey they carried out which shows that 89 percent of Polish people want more energy to come from renewable sources. "If you had the choice to invest either in more efficient coal-fired power plants or renewable energy, knowing that by mid-century you have to bring down the CO2 emissions to zero, there's only one answer," said Greenpeace's Martin Kaiser. "You should invest into renewable energies, which will bring also employment into your country, in the countryside, and not only centralised to a few companies," he added. In Poland, coal is big business, and on the outskirts of Warsaw, the Siekierki power plant burns coal to provide electricity for homes and businesses across the Polish capital. And on the eve of the COP19 conference, an alternative meeting brought together climate-change deniers, business lobby groups and right-wing nationalists to denounce COP. Polish and US independent climate activists alleged there is not sufficient evidence that carbon gases contribute to the rise in global temperatures or that human activity contributes to climate change. Polish trade unions, meanwhile are worried that Asian countries - like Mongolia - with cheaper coal, will be able to undercut Poland's manufacturing base if it is forced to switch to more environmentally friendly power sources. In parts of central and south-east Asia, vast open-cast pits produce millions of tonnes of coal without the need to conform to EU environmental extraction laws. Marek Adamczyk, from Poland's Solidarity movement, argues that the country needs coal. The country needs "a substantial input of primary energy" to fuel its domestic industries like "making furniture, steel, electro machinery" he said. "If that energy is more expensive as a result of climate policy of the European Union" he said, then purchasers will get the same products from cheaper, non-EU countries which still power their manufacturing base with coal. "Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan or South East Asia will win. And we will lose," Adamczyk asserted.

JSGS Public Lecture~Saskatchewan First Nations and the Province's Resource Future
Presented by Chief Bellegarde, Chief of the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations Saskatchewan is in the middle of an unprecedented resource boom. With oil and gas in the south, potash in central Saskatchewan and uranium in the North, along with promising mineral plays in various locations,Saskatchewan's economy is growing rapidly. First Nations are determined to benefit from the boom, as Treaty Peoples with strong ties to the land and with promises from government that we will benefit from development. With duty to consult and accommodate requirements in place, Saskatchewan First Nations have become national leaders in working out appropriate collaboration and impact and benefit agreements with companies and governments. Much more can be done. More First Nations can be employed on the resource projects. Greater care can be taken to protect our traditional lands and protect our people from harm. There are important business opportunities for First Nations companies that remain to be developed. First Nations will not stand in the way of properly managed development that is based on consultations and agreements with our communities, but nor will First Nations agree to open-ended development strategies that do not return a fair share of the benefits from resource development with the Saskatchewan First Nations.
