https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2553088/help-bring-monsters-and-maniacs-to-life Hey guys! our @kickstarter campaign is finally live! The campaigns goal is to get the equipment and ability to travel to these haunted locations we all live and film real people to learn the history and their own ghost and paranormal stories. Keep in mind if you can't back the project yourself it is JUST as valuable if you share the project on your facebook, instagram, and twitter... Sharing it is even more important if you DO back the project so we can make sure that it's successful and you can get your backer rewards, which range from stickers, tshirts, and even me turning your own ghost stories into a series that will remain on my YouTube page where you will be immortalized. If you're a fan of @ghostadventures then this project is for you! Thank you for your support! #ghostadventures#kickstarter#ghost#paranormal#documentary#youtube#youtuber#crowdfunding#scary#history
Hello and Welcome I am Teddy Payne your lecturer and I’ll serve as a guide on our tour of World History. We will begin our course by looking at the development of civilizations as they rose around the world. Following this process until the present.
I will present this course as close to chronological order as possible. In this course I will explore and discuss more than just the events of history. We will delve into a narrative that inspects all aspects of culture art, philosophy, religion, etc. In doing so we will have an opportunity to examine the nuts and bolts of a civilization. This method also allows us to draw out similarities and differences between civilizations. Particularly in the areas of problem solving and adaptations. During the grand narrative presentation we will stop to examine key texts, persons and new ideas from the civilizations we will cover. Examples of this will be comparisons between Mesopotamia and Egypt, Rome and Carthage, The Aztecs and the Inkans etc.
To begin I would like to define civilization, civilization as we know it, as we define it is an urban city based phenomenon. The attributes that are used as markers for civilizations are the instruments typically found in cities, law codes, writing and numerical systems, art, innovations etc. all are primarily associated with urban settings. Cities tend to nurture the development of such social instruments, cities will also produce the singular individuals and group collectives that we will focus on. I say all of this to make a point that civilizations come in many forms and in this course we will be discussing and covering Urban Civilizations or Urban History. Because it will be the cities and the people from these cities that we will focus on in almost every aspect. Our focus on cities is understandable we are focused on the events that proved to be watershed moments in history.
Where to look for the inspiration for your product, to make it more interesting? Usually people turn their gaze into the future, diligently straining their imagination. If you don't have a science fiction writer's talent to predict the future, turn your gaze… to the past. Ecclesiastes says " There is nothing new under the sun" and it is the truth. Frequently all that mankind does is re-discovers what our ancestors created or what is exist in the nature. We use the latest science achievements and technologies only to replicate an old idea on a new level. This is exactly what happened with gull and Tesla SUV. Birds often inspired mankind, but now we talk about gull wing. "Gull-wing door" is a term that describes car doors that are hinged at the roof rather than the side. The first car with this type of the doors (also known as a falcon-wing door) was Mercedes-Benz 300SL race car in 1952. When designers decided to attach "wings" to Tesla, they used the old idea, but they added futurism to the vehicle. Look at the Tesla logo closely. There is not only the capital "T" letter, but the wings too. Here is a question: what was the first - the brand name, the car design or the wings, that transport you to the future? My advice to you: learn the history of the product you make.
