The Americanization of Benjamin Franklin


* * * * * . . BEN FRANKLIN update . . * * * * *

Did you know Ben Franklin was loved by the French? He was able to
get millions of dollars in loans from the French to help America get
started. John Adams (2nd president) didn't like Franklin and tried to get
him removed as the French ambassador. Every attempt to remove Franklin was
resisted by the French who insisted he be a part of the American team.
Franklin was successful with both the French and English in important diplomacy.
The key to Franklin's success while others like Adams could not succeed was
Ben had immersed himself in French culture and developed strong relationships
with important people in France. They loved Ben. History is cool.


. . . . . Earth Changes Update . . . . .

When the earth was warmer millions of years ago, and there
was no polar ice caps, there were many more plants on earth.
The green house gases were very high. The results were an abundance of
plants which produced OXYGEN ! The much higher levels of oxygen allowed
dragon flies to be of size one foot in length. Such a fossil was just
discovered in a quarry in Germany.

Technology = Keck telescope in Hawaii uses computers
to simulate a GIANT lens. Yes, computers can simulate
a telescope lens larger than can be built
on earth (gravity effect causes limits).
Why is this important?
Guess what happens if the earth is hit by
a 10 kilometer (mile) meteor?
Yes, one of our greatest threats is big rocks
flying through space.
Look at the moons surface! The earth
get's hit four times more!
Earth is 4 times bigger than the moon.
Don't live on the coast if one of those big
rocks hits the ocean!
So, telescopes are being used to identify and
track big rocks that might hit the earth.
Some day we will be visiting some of them to
cause them to not hit earth.

Mural by John Steuart Curry in Topeka, KS

This picture is loaded with symbolism, the struggle to end slavery, and Kansas references like the tornado.

Ok, the burning of Lawrence KS by confederate raiders, the bloodshed of the civil war, the difficult life for

early settlers. The destructive forces of man and nature, the power of the gun and the bible,

the bigger than life stature of John Brown.

In Kansas he is a hero, on the East Coast of America he is considered a rebel.

More on Kansas history during the COWBOY days, to be added in 2008!

Skip on past the white area to the rest of the web site below it.





Worth knowing;

New KU theory (KU - Kansas Univeristy)

450 million years ago earth was zapped by a gamma ray burst

These happen about 300 times daily, with only 1 daily hitting earth.

Most are 6 to 7 billion light years away, but 450 Million years ago

one was close to earth and caused our ozone to disapate for a time

letting the sun's UV rays kill much of the plankton and tribolites

in the oceans. Later effect was hazing of earths atmosphere

followed by GLOBAL FROSTING (cooling). It was pretty bad.


now another extinction event follows below -
. New fact based dino extinction facts, it was a
130,000 yr process with three phases and
the earth heating up - 250 million years ago.
