Down At The Bottom   [ original song ]
a Coal Miners Song © t. hutton 2014, FOR MORE GO TO ----- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KehdPoDZ4eY --- In England, The Oaks explosion remains the worst mining accident, claiming 388 lives on 12 December 1866 near Barnsley in Yorkshire. The Hulton Colliery explosion at Westhoughton, Lancashire, in 1910 claimed the lives of 344 miners. An explosion in 1878, at the Wood Pit, Haydock, Lancashire, killed over 200 workers, although only 189 were included in the 'official list'. Another disaster that killed many miners was the Hartley Colliery Disaster, which occurred in January 1862 when the beam of the main steam winding engine broke suddenly and fell into the single shaft serving the pit. It blocked the shaft, and entombed hundreds of miners. The final death toll was 204, most of whom were suffocated by the lack of oxygen in the mine atmosphere. In the metalliferous mines of Cornwall, some of the worst accidents were at East Wheal Rose in 1846, where 39 workers were killed by a sudden flood; at Levant mine in 1919, where 31 were killed and many injured in a failure of the man engine;[33] 12 killed at Wheal Agar in 1883 when a cage fell down a shaft;[34] and seven killed at Dolcoath mine in 1893 when a large stull collapsed. Scotland The worst mining accident in Scotland is the 1877 Blantyre mining disaster in Blantyre, Lanarkshire, which claimed 207 lives. For several tense days in September 1950, another worst accident happened on the small Ayrshire mining village. The world paused with bated breath as rescuers battled bravely against all odds to reach the 129 men trapped deep underground when a field above where they were working caved-in, flooding the mine workings with thick liquid peat, cutting off all means of escape. Wales Crowd gathering at the pit head of the Senghenydd Colliery after the explosion in October 1913 During the period 1850 to 1930 the South Wales coalfield had the worst disaster record. This was due to the increasing number of mines being sunk to greater depths into gas-containing strata, combined with poor safety and management practices. As a result there were nearly forty underground explosions in the Glamorgan and Monmouthshire areas of the coalfield during this time. Each accident resulted in the deaths of twenty or more workers - either directly in the explosion or by suffocation by the poisonous gases formed. The total death toll from these disasters was 3,119 people. The four worst accidents in Wales were: 439 deaths at the Senghenydd Colliery Disaster at Universal Colliery in Senghenydd, Glamorgan, in a gas explosion in 1913. 290 deaths at the Albion Colliery in Cilfynydd, Glamorgan, in a gas explosion on 25 June 1894. 272 deaths at the Prince of Wales Colliery, Abercarn, Monmouthshire, in an explosion of 11 September 1878. 266 deaths in the Gresford Disaster near Wrexham in North Wales on 22 September 1934. Some collieries, e.g. Morfa Colliery near Port Talbot, Glamorgan, and Black Vein Colliery, Risca, Monmouthshire, suffered three disasters before they were closed for being unsafe. United States The Monongah Mining Disaster was the worst mining accident of American history; 362 workers were killed in an underground explosion on December 6, 1907 in Monongah, West Virginia. From 1880 to 1910, mine accidents claimed thousands of fatalities. Where annual mining deaths had numbered more than 1,000 a year during the early part of the 20th century, they decreased to an average of about 500 during the late 1950s, and to 93 during the 1990s. In addition to deaths, many thousands more are injured (an average of 21,351 injuries per year between 1991 and 1999), but overall there has been a downward trend of deaths and injuries. In 1959, the Knox Mine Disaster occurred in Port Griffith, Pennsylvania. The swelling Susquehanna river collapsed into a mine under it and resulted in 12 deaths. In Plymouth, Pennsylvania, the Avondale Mine Disaster of 1869 resulted in the deaths of 108 miners and two rescue workers after a fire in the only shaft eliminated the oxygen in the mine. Federal laws for mining safety resulted from this disaster. Pennsylvania suffered another disaster in 2002 at Quecreek, 9 miners were trapped underground and subsequently rescued after 78 hours. During 2006, 72 miners lost their lives at work, 47 by coal mining. The majority of these fatalities occurred in Kentucky and West Virginia, including the Sago Mine Disaster.[40][41] On April 5, 2010, in the Upper Big Branch Mine disaster an underground explosion caused the deaths of 29 miners. The U.S. Bureau of Mines was created in 1910 to investigate accidents, advise industry, conduct production and safety research, and teach courses in accident prevention, first aid, and mine rescue. The Federal Coal Mine Health and Safety Acts of 1969 and 1977 set further safety standards for the mining.

A Brief History of the UK Coal Miners Strike 1984 85
The video looks at the UK coal miners strike which took place between 1984-85. The main leaders reviewed in the video are Arhur Scargill and Margaret Thatcher. Following the Coal Miners strike Trade Unions within the UK lost a lot of power and the nationalised coal industry was reduced massively. There was often battles between the police and miners during the strike. However, the media was very biased against the strikes until channel four filmed from the miners perspective. The video looks at the impact of the UK Miner's strike made to the miners families and the impact it had n families and communities are often over looked. The Coal industry is still active today however, not to the scale that it was in the 1970's and 80's.

Damage estimated at more than a million pounds has been caused by the Coal Board's major extensions to Bradford Colliery. The pit, more than 100 years old, has recently undergone extensive modernisation. Besides damage to factory buildings and installations (the biggest gasometer has started tilting over), the brick bed of a river has been fractured in several places, and hundreds of houses, too, have been affected.

Why This Town Has Been On Fire For 50 Years
This week Reactions is shining light on why a small town in PA, Centralia, has been on fire for over 50 years. It's because of science. Well, chemistry, technically. In 1962, an underground fire started in the coal-mining town of Centralia, Pennsylvania. Fifty-three years later, that fire still burns. In this week’s episode of Reactions, we explain the history and science behind the Centralia mine fire. Does anyone still live there? How could the fire keep burning for so long, and why hasn’t it been extinguished? From a chemical standpoint, what is fire, anyway?

The Toxic Blue Lagoon of Buxton

And it is, if you enjoy skin irritation and fungal infections. But the strange thing is: I arrived expecting to find it black, not blue... Why do I talk about dark and lonely water, and about fools ignoring signs?

13 BIGGEST Treasures Ever Discovered
From gold coins to sunken treasure to ancient tombs, these are the 13 biggest treasures ever discovered. Back in 2014, a middle aged couple in Northern California accidentally stumbled across 1400 gold coins while walking their dog. The old coins were likely stolen from a coin minting factory back in the Gold Rush era of California and hidden underground for a couple hundred years. The individual coins were auctioned off and ended up raising 11 million dollars. The couple has chosen to stay anonymous and refused to disclose where they found the gold to prevent a false gold rush in their area. Most of their 11 million dollar profit was donated to charity. The British are constantly sweeping their own land with metal detectors, in hopes of finding ancient treasures and trinkets lost to history. In 2001 one such hobby treasure hunter, a retired electrician, was sweeping a grassy field with his metal detector, hoping to find something valuable in the dirt. He unwittingly uncovered a bona fide treasure - a 3.5 oz cup carved from 20 karat gold. The 3500 year old cup was made around the same time Stonehenge was built and was valued at £270,00 british pounds or roughly $390,000 USD. The Silverdale Hoard is the name given to one of the largest caches of Viking Silver ever found. This massive find was uncovered in North Yorkshire a few years ago in 2011 and is comprised of 1000 year old silver heirlooms, including 90 silver viking coins with the name of an unknown Viking king minted onto it. This mysterious hoard is still being analyzed to this day with hopes of uncovering more details of Viking history and culture. The continued study of the treasure makes the monetary value unclear, but the Silverdale Hoard is estimated to be worth at least 100,00 British pounds or about 145,000 US dollars. A sunken ship full of nearly 600,000 gold and silver coins was found at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean by a private treasure hunting company called Odyssey Marine. A priceless hoard of gold coins and hand crafted gold chains were found inside of the ship, which was called the Frigate Mercedes, and became the center of a controversy when Spain claimed ownership over the gold. A legal battle between Spain and Odyssey Marine ensued and lasted half a decade before the Spanish government prevailed. In 2015, Spain finally flew their 17 tons of priceless coins across the Atlantic. This massive load of treasure was found in 2009 when a farmer in Central England lost a tool in his field and called a friend with a metal detector to scan for it. In search of a farm tool, Terry accidentally uncovered the largest single hoard of Anglo-Saxon gold ever found. As excavators dug up the field they found a total of 3500 pieces of gold, silver, and garnet that would total to 3.285 million british pounds or 4.75 million US dollars, split in half by the man who owned the land and the man who found it. Amateur divers were exploring an old sunken dock off of the coast of Israel when they discovered 2,000 gold coins hidden in the sea bed. The centuries old currency was miraculously unmarred by age or water damage at the bottom of the ocean. There is no current estimated monetary value of the 20 pounds worth of coins, but they are considered extremely rare and valuable to historians. Even at the time of their minting in 900 AD they were considered a royal sum of cash. One of the most exciting and largest treasures on this list has come close to being discovered but hasn’t actually been found yet. In 2010 the successful art dealer, hobby treasure hunter, and eccentric millionaire Forrest Fenn had the idea of hiding a huge fortune in a treasure chest and burying it somewhere for someone else to find. Fenn hopes to share the fun and thrill of treasure hunting which he has enjoyed throughout his life with others. If you were to discover Fenn’s Treasure with the set of 9 clues he has put out, you would be looking at a sweet 1 to 3 million US dollar cash out of gold nuggets and precious stones.

The Channel Tunnel Documentary
This #Engineering Documentary details the design and construction of the one of the boldest engineering challenge undertaken. The Channel Tunnel is a 50 km rail link running beneath the English Channel, connecting The UK and France at Folkestone, Kent and Coquelles, Pas-de-Calais respectively. The tunnel began construction in 1988 with the tunnel being dug simultaneously from France and Britain with 11 massive Tunnel Boring Machines (TBM’s). Approximately 20 million passengers are ferried through the tunnel every year with a travel time of about 35 minutes. Tunnelling was a major engineering challenge, it being the second such project in the world to be undertaken after the undersea Seikan Tunnel in Japan. Due to the pressure from the sea above, a serious water inflow risk to the tunnel existed. Also being privately funded, the tunnel was under tremendous time constraint since early return of investment was paramount. The tunnel project operational model was known as a build-own-operate-transfer (BOOT) project with a concession. BOOT projects typically involve significant design and construction as well as long term operations. TransManche Link (TML) would design and build the tunnel, but financing was through a separate legal entity, Eurotunnel. Eurotunnel acquired Channel Tunnel Group (CTG) and France Manche (FM) and signed a construction contract with TML, but the French and British governments controlled the engineering and safety aspects, now being the responsibility of the Channel Tunnel Safety Authority. The British and French governments gave Eurotunnel a 55-year operating concession (from 1987 to 2052) in order to repay loans and pay dividends. A Railway Usage Agreement guaranteeing future revenue was signed between British Rail , Eurotunnel, and SNCF in exchange for the railways obtaining half of the tunnel's capacity. Power is delivered to the locomotives via an overhead line at 25 kV 50 Hz. All tunnel services run on electricity, shared equally from English and French sources. There are two sub-stations fed at 400 kV at each terminal, but in an emergency the tunnel's lighting (about 20,000 light fittings) and plant can be powered solely from either England or France. The project was not without incident however, with ten workers being killed, eight of them British, most in the first few months of construction. There were also fire incidents breaking out in the years 1996, 2006, 2008, 2012 and 2015. Despite all these challenges and budget overruns, the Channel Tunnel was finally completed in 1994 at a cost of $8.4 billion from the original planned $4.7 billion. The completed project was opened by Queen Elizabeth II and French President François Mitterrand on May 6 1994.

Hot Fuzz movie clips: http://j.mp/1uwjDCy BUY THE MOVIE: http://amzn.to/uoaVE7 Don't miss the HOTTEST NEW TRAILERS: http://bit.ly/1u2y6pr CLIP DESCRIPTION: Angel (Simon Pegg) and Danny (Nick Frost) discover a huge cache of weapons hidden at a local farm. FILM DESCRIPTION: A top London cop who is so good at his job that he makes his fellow officers look like slackers by comparison is "promoted" to serve in the sleepy village of Sandford in this contemporary action comedy from the creators of Shaun of the Dead. Police constable Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) always gets his man, but these days his impeccable record seems to be more indicative of his fellow officers' shortcomings than his own formidable skills as a keeper of the peace. Loathe to stand idly by as their once respectable track record is steadily soiled by the hyper-competent actions of one lone overachiever, Sergeant Angel's superiors at the Met soon determine to remedy their problem by relocating the decorated constable to the West Country village of Sanford -- where tranquil garden parties and neighborhood watch meetings stand in stark contrast to the violent crime and heated gunplay of the city. As Sergeant Angel does his best to adjust to the relative calm of his new environment, his oafish new partner Danny Butterman (Nick Frost) strives to gain the respect of his fellow constables while sustaining himself on fantasies of his favorite action films and police shows. Later, just as it begins to appear as if Sergeant Angel has been relegated to an uneventful existence in the relative calm of the countryside, a series of horrific "accidents" lead him to suspect that the tranquil hamlet of Sanford has fallen prey to a sinister plot which reeks of foul play. Jim Broadbent, Timothy Dalton, Steve Coogan, and Martin Freeman co-star in the Edgar Wright film.

Coal Mines: A Dangerous Way To Make Money  - History Documentary Films
Coal Mines: A Dangerous Way To Make Money - History Documentary Films The aim of coal mining is to get coal and in some cases various other resources from the ground. In the United States, United Kingdom, and South Africa, a coal mine and its structures are a colliery. Coal mining has actually had several advancements over the current years, from the very early days of guys tunneling, excavating and by hand removing the coal on carts to big open cut and lengthy wall mines. Mining at this scale needs the use of draglines, vehicles, shearers, conveyors and jacks. Little scale mining of area deposits goes back hundreds of years. For instance, in Roman Britain, the Romans were exploiting all major coalfields (save those of North and South Staffordshire) by the late 2nd century ADVERTISEMENT. While much of its usage stayed local, a dynamic trade developed along the North Sea coast providing coal to Yorkshire and London. The Industrial Revolution, which started in Britain in the 18th century, and later spread out to continental Europe and North America, was based on the availability of coal to power steam engines.

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

British mining industry in WW2 part two of four

SEE MY HISTORY SITE ON FACEBOOK : https://www.facebook.com/pages/Alan-Heaths-History-Page/173472422695696 twitter : @ceepackaging The British mining industry had been in decline following WW1 but suddenly huge amounts of coal were needed to keep war industries moving. This is the story of the miners in world war two. My channel on you tube : http://www.youtube.com/alanheath is one of the most prolific from Poland, although unfortunately not the most visited. With almost one film per day, one may be forgiven for thinking I do nothing else but I do have a day job as well. I have produced almost 600 original films, most in English but also in Polish, French, Italian, Spanish and the occassional hint of German and Hebrew. My big interest in life is travel and history but I have also placed films on other subjects Please feel free to ask questions in the public area or to comment on things you disagree with. Sometimes there are mistakes because I speak without preparation. If I see the mistakes myself, I make this clear in the text. Please also leave a star rating! There are a number of films here on the packaging industry. This is because I am the publisher of Central and Eastern European Packaging -- http://www.ceepackaging.com - the international platform for the packaging industry in this region focussing on the latest innovations, trends, design, branding, legislation and environmental issues with in-depth profiles of major industry achievers. Most people may think packaging pretty boring but it possibly effects your life more than you really imagine! Central and Eastern European Packaging examines the packaging industry throughout this region, but in particular in the largest regional economies which are Russia, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Ukraine and Austria. That is not to say that the other countries are forgotten, they are not, but obviously there is less going on. However the fact that there are so many travel related films here is not from holidays but from business trips attending trade fairs around the region. Every packaging trade fair is a new excuse to make another film!

Week Ending: The British Miner's Strike 1984
The BBC Radio comedy show Week Ending examines the British miner's strike of 1984 in the style of David Attenborough. The poor sound quality is due to the limits of old transistor radios, as well as the fact that the radio waves had to cross the North Sea. Explanation for the young'uns: Sir Ian MacGregor was leader of the National Coal Board 1983-86. Arthur Scargill led the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) from 1981 to 2000. Most Nottinghamshire miners opposed the strike, leading to confrontations with their colleagues in neighbouring Yorkshire. "Blackleg": Strikebreaker. At the time, BBC also aired the wildlife documentary "The Living Planet" with Sir David Attenborough. Finally, I must add that the images which represent the Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire miners in this video are picked more or less at random by me, and that I have no idea who these men are or what part, if any, they played in the strike. No offense to any of them is intended.

Empire and revolution: A socialist history of the First World War - Dave Sherry
http://marxismfestival.org.uk http://socialistworker.co.uk/art/38567/Marxism+2014+-+debating+how+we+can+resist+the+Tories+and+change+the+world This year's Marxism festival in central London took place at a time of escalating struggle against the Tories. Over 2,600 people attended the event, organised by the Socialist Workers Party (SWP). Some 166 meetings took place as well as film screenings and other cultural events. Marxism 2014 began on the day of a 1.4 million-strong public sector strike. Striking workers were welcomed with cheers from the audience at the opening rally on Thursday of last week. Speakers alongside them included South African miner Makhanya Siphamandla and Hillsborough justice campaigner Sheila Coleman. Trade unionists discussed how to take the fight forward throughout Marxism. Unison union member Karen Reissmann introduced a session on the bureaucracy and the rank and file in trade unions. She said there is pressure from below on union leaders "but it isn't a confident pressure". Workers discussed how to increase confidence and develop organisation independent of union officials. Union leaders including CWU general secretary Billy Hayes, UCU president Liz Lawrence and Bfawu general secretary Ronnie Draper all addressed Marxism. Other meetings took a debate format. Independence Socialist lecturer Paul Blackledge and Ed Rooksby of Left Unity debated left reformism. Angela McCormick and Stephen Law debated Scottish independence. People from the floor discussed whether a vote for independence would break working class unity. SWP national secretary Charlie Kimber introduced a meeting on tackling the racist Ukip party. Two activists from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, urged everyone to build a demonstration in their town outside Ukip's national conference on 27 September. Ex-miners spoke on the 30th anniversary of the 1984-85 Miners' Strike. John Pilger, Darcus Howe and Gareth Peirce introduced a meeting to remember Paul Foot, who died ten years ago. Paul was an investigative journalist and former editor of Socialist Worker. A series of meetings explored the global impact of the crisis. Greek socialists Maria Styllou and Panos Garganas argued that a high level of workers' struggle had pulled Greek politics to the left. But they warned that the Syriza party, once a radical left coalition, had moved towards the centre as it prepared for government. German MP Christina Buchholz and Irish socialist Kieran Allen described how political radicalisation could take place even where workers' resistance was frustrated. There were debates on key elements of Marxist theory including Marxism and feminism, Leninism, human nature and the dialectic. Other talks covered a wide range of topics including mental health, religion, art and psychoanalysis. Can the Middle East be free? Revolutionaries from across the Middle East spoke at Marxism. Syrian revolutionary Joseph Daher described the state of the struggle there while Lebanese socialist Bassem Chit addressed the issue of sectarianism. Iraqi socialist Sami Ramadani spoke alongside Socialist Worker editor Judith Orr about the new threat of war in Iraq. Ghada Karmi introduced a meeting on Palestine, along with CWU general secretary Billy Hayes. An extra meeting on how Palestine can be free was organised, introduced by John Rose and Wassim Wagdy. The meeting broke out in chants when told it was being live streamed to Jehad Saftawy, a journalist in Gaza. Jehad told Socialist Worker, "Meetings like this make us more strong because we feel that there is at least a little justice in this world to know that people care." http://marxismfestival.org.uk http://socialistworker.co.uk/art/38567/Marxism+2014+-+debating+how+we+can+resist+the+Tories+and+change+the+world

Senghenydd Colliery Disaster Senghenydd, South Wales Deaths 440 men and boys Verdict Explosion caused by firedamp ignition The Senghenydd Colliery Disaster, also known as the Senghenydd Explosion (Welsh: Tanchwa Senghennydd), occurred in Senghenydd,[1] near Caerphilly, Glamorgan, Wales, on 14 October 1913, killing 439 miners and one rescuer. It is the worst mining accident in the United Kingdom, and one of the most serious globally in terms of loss of life.[2] The explosion gained this distinction nearly half a century after the previous worst disaster – the Oaks explosion at Oaks Pit, in Barnsley, Yorkshire, on 12 December 1866, when 388 workers died in two separate explosions.[3]

Amendment Passed to Ensure Guaranteed Time Frame for Environmental Permitting Process
U.S. Representative Chip Cravaack (MN) offered an amendment to H.R. 4402, National Strategic and Critical Minerals Production Act of 2012, which would provide a guaranteed time frame for the permitting process for mineral exploration. Specifically, thirty months would be given to complete the permitting process, which can currently take upwards of ten years. Importantly, the Cravaack amendment, which was adopted by the House unanimously, would allow mining projects that have already applied for a permit, and are currently in the permitting process, access to the new expedited procedures under H.R. 4402. PolyMet Mining initiated an environmental review of its proposed NorthMet copper and nickel mine in 2005. The Cravaack amendment would ensure that such projects are given a firm timeline that workers, communities, and families can count on. "H.R. 4402 is a common sense, pro-growth piece of legislation that would simply facilitate a timely permitting process for very important mining projects throughout the United States. My amendment falls along the same common sense thinking that the underlying bill comes from -- that 30 months is plenty of time to complete the total review process for permitting a mine," said Rep. Cravaack. "People's lives are on hold, futures have been put on hold, and school funds are on hold. People without jobs are waiting for work. Special interest groups are fighting to block the creation of mining jobs, and in the Eighth District, these mining jobs are needed to put food on the table. Special interests are saying that 10 years of waiting is not enough - the U.S. won World War II in less than 4 years. And incidentally, it was Iron Range mining that provided the steel for U.S. tanks, guns, and vehicles. I urge the Senate to take action on this very important piece of legislation," Cravaack added. H.R. 4402 would give agencies the ability to cut through bureaucratic red-tape, duplicative reviews, and enhance government coordination. Additionally, the bill would direct agencies to mitigate environmental impacts while developing America's mineral resources, and ensure American mineral mining projects are not indefinitely delayed by frivolous lawsuits. These steps will allow the United States to more efficiently develop the nation's strategic and critical minerals that are vital to job creation, American economic competitiveness, and national security. Critically, H.R. 4402 maintains full compliance with existing environmental regulations. The bill gives the lead agency the ability to waive duplication if the agency determines the state and federal safeguards are sufficient. Specifically, all existing environmental regulations must meet current federal standards, although certain state standards currently exceed federal standards. In such instances, the federal permitting process could be waved to avoid duplication. Rep. Cravaack serves on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee -- where he is Vice Chair of the Aviation Subcommittee -- the Homeland Security Committee, and the Science, Space and Technology Committee. The 8th Congressional District covers 18 counties in Northeast Minnesota.

Big Muskie - The Largest Walking Dragline Ever Built
Standing 22 stories tall and weighing 13,500 metric tons, Big Muskie was the world's largest dragline and the biggest machine that has ever walked on the face of the earth. With the boom down, it was almost 500 ft in length. Big Muskie was a coal mining Bucyrus-Erie dragline owned by the Central Ohio Coal Company. It removed more than twice the amount of earth moved during the construction of the Panama Canal. Its bucket could hold two Greyhound buses side by side. I was talking to a guy in a bar in Fort Stockton,Texas in 2001. When I told him I was from Ohio he said he just came back from Ohio. He was on a crew that was cutting up "Big Muskie". He said he was there a year outside of Zanesville. He was surprised that I never heard of Big Muskie. I was surprised when he said it took a year to cut up. Here's why.....
