For Sale: A $400K Apple 1 Motherboard and 15 Other Treasures of Science History

By Betsy Mason
10.07.14



User Image
This incredibly rare example of the first electric keyboard, designed by Hermann Von Helmholtz, was built by Max Kohl, one of the most famous scientific instrument makers of his time. It may be the finest Helmholtz sound synthesizer still in existence.




If youíre a science and tech history geek with mad stacks waiting to be spent, youíve come to the right place. If you fit that description minus the mad stacks, start buying lottery tickets, because the upcoming History of Science auction at Bonhams New York is full of stuff you want.

The 288-lot lineup hits the block Oct. 22. Itís full of super-rare, super-awesome things like a 1,500-pound, 6-inch-thick heavily leaded window that Manhattan Project scientists peered through to watch plutonium production. Itís expected to go between $150,000 and $250,000. Or maybe youíd prefer an Apple-1 motherboard built by Steve Wozniak in Steve Jobsí garage. It works, which helps explain why itís expected to command something in the neighborhood of $300,000 to $500,000.

Subject: Cheating at the gas pump

This is especially prevalent at places owned by foreign born entities.

In some cases, they even have counterfeit Department of Agriculture stickers to put on the pumps when they re-calibrate. The State seldom physically inspects the pumps as it is very labor intensive, so it often goes overlooked for months or years. I usually buy all my gas at Sam's Club, but always get receipts wherever I have to get fuel. Often, I will pump exactly ONE GALLON and check the pump pricing before continuing the fill up, and even then, I am aware of how much fuel I should get within a couple of tenths of a gallon from experience.

This is true. It happened to them three weeks ago somewhere in Pomona on our way to Penchant. The pump should have totaled @ $68.00 (and change). When the receipt was printed, and she checked it was $ 77.00 (and change). She got mad, went inside the store, asked for a calculator and let them do the math. They refunded her. she told them that if they cheat, they had better make it right. Normally, her husband would skip printing the receipt. Not her. We saw on the news the other night that this is happening everywhere.

Brian pumped exactly one gallon of gas. The price did not match the cost of one gallon. It was higher. He went inside and complained, got a refund.

There is also a number on each pump that you can call and complain.

This is a true story, so read it carefully.

I stopped at a BP gas station in GA. My truck's gas gauge was on 1/4 of a tank. I use the mid-grade, which was priced at $3.71 per gallon. When my tank is at this point, it takes somewhere around 14 gallons to fill. When the pump showed 14 gallons had been pumped, I began to slow it down. Then, to my surprise, it went to 15, then 16. I even looked under my truck to see if it was being spilled. It was not.

Then it showed 17 gallons on the pump. It stopped at 18 gallons. This was very strange to me, since my truck has only an 18 gallon tank. I went on my way a little confused, then on the evening news I heard a report that 1 out of 4 gas stations had calibrated their pumps to show more gas had been pumped than a person actually got.

Here is how to check a pump to see if you are getting the right amount:
Whichever grade you are using, put EXACTLY 1 (one) GALLON in your tank, then look at the dollar amount. If the dollar amount is not EXACTLY the price of the fuel PRICE ADVERTISED, then the pumps are rigged.

In my case, as I said, the mid-grade was $3.71 per gallon; my dollar amount for 1 gallon should have been $3.71.

I wish I had checked the pump. It doesn't matter where you pump gas, please check the 1 gallon price. If you do find a station that is cheating, contact the state Agriculture Department, and direct your comments to the Commissioner, the info is on the gas pumps.

We need to put a stop to this outrageous cheating of customers. The gas companies are making enough profits at honest rates.

Swamp,
Where I live they have two older vehicles that have special valves that can switch from an EXACT 1 gallon tank that can be switched to the real tank to get to the stations to be checked! One is driven by a little old lady the other by a very young girl. They visit stations full time and check for acuracy. They catch quite a few here. If they catch one they drive off and call the authorities and they come down and shut the station down and confiscate all records, They usually catch tax cheats they way too. The scam works both ways in that they usually under report!

They caught a ring here filing stations with stolen gas and reporting half of what they actually sold!

Just like that article said. It was a gang from Albania and they were ALL related!! They caught one gang of Romani also!

Kurdish fighters and air strikes repel Isil in Kobane

Islamic State fighters launch a renewed offensive in the Syrian border town after being driven out by US-led air strikes as Kurdish forces struggle to regain control.

By Agencies
12:00PM BST 08 Oct 2014

Islamic State jihadists were forced to withdraw from sections of the embattled Syrian border town of Kobane and renew their offensive in the east after US-led air strikes hit the area.

"There are fierce clashes underway in the east of Ain al-Arab (Kobane) after the Islamic State launched an offensive to retake the areas it lost control of," said Rami Abdel Rahman, director of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

He said at least three fighters from the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) were killed in the fighting on Wednesday, along with an unspecified number of IS jihadists.

The fresh assault came after the Observatory said IS fighters had withdrawn on Tuesday night from parts of the eastern and southwestern edges of Kobane.

After the pullback, the group's fighters were present in eastern parts of the strategic town and its southern edges, but were no longer inside on the western front, Abdel Rahman said.

It came after "their rear positions were hit in strikes, causing casualties and damaging at least four of their vehicles," he added.

The Observatory said in its latest toll update that at least 32 IS fighters were killed in and around Kobane on Tuesday, including at least 20 in coalition air strikes.

At least eight YPG militiamen were killed during clashes in the town on Tuesday, said the Britain-based group, which relies on a network of sources on the ground for its reports.

IS fighters entered Kobane on Monday night, after nearly three weeks of fighting around the town on the Syria-Turkey border.

On Tuesday, fighting had raged in the east, west and south of Kobane, which is Syria's third biggest Kurdish town, and a US-led coalition fighting IS carried out multiple air strikes around it.

Mustafa Ebdi, a Kurdish journalist and activist from Kobane, wrote on his Facebook page that "the streets of the Maqtala neighbourhood in southeastern Kobane are full of the bodies of Daesh fighters," using the Arabic acronym for IS.

But he added that hundreds of civilians remained in the town and "the humanitarian situation is difficult and people need food and water."

IS began its advance on Kobane on September 16, quickly sweeping through the surrounding countryside and prompting an estimated 186,000 people to flee the region across the border into Turkey.

According to the Observatory, at least 412 people have been killed in the fighting, though the group said it believes the true toll could be twice as high.

Letter from Fayetteville: Why this military town is having second thoughts

By Andy Sullivan
October 8, 2014

After 13 years of war, life outside the gates of the United Statesí largest military base has settled into a familiar ebb and flow.

Army paratroopers and commandos stationed at Fort Bragg periodically board transport planes bound for Iraq and Afghanistan, leaving spouses to handle the carpooling and holiday planning. Kids celebrate birthdays with one parent in the room the other watching from a computer screen somewhere out there. Crowds thin out at Little League games and restaurants sell fewer orders of chicken wings. When troops return, business picks back up.

So when President Barack Obama announced a new military campaign to contain Islamic radicals in Syria and Iraq several weeks ago, little seemed to change in this city of some 200,000 folks, just west of Interstate 95. On the night the President announced a new wave of airstrikes, TVs in the local sports bars were tuned to a football game between the New York Jets and the Chicago Bears. Another war? ďIím all for it,Ē said a recent enlistee, dressed in running shoes and shorts as he left a Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant.

But behind the gung-ho, business-as-usual attitude, itís not hard to detect a sense of weariness and frustration about the prospect of another open-ended conflict that could drag on for years. In that sense, this proudly pro-military town in the North Carolina flatlands isnít so different from the American public as a whole, which the polls tell us, is leery of returning to a messy region of the world that already has claimed too much of the countryís blood and treasure.

What's more interesting is that I even read this post since I rarely look at this section.
I suppose if the conditions are the same on another planet regarding their moon then certainly they could also have a 'blood moon' or something similar.

Have you ever read the Gnostic Gospels...?
