WARNING: THIS VIDEO CONTAINS LANGUAGE SOME VIEWERS MAY FIND OFFENSIVE

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – A local urban explorer’s video of the abandoned Jamestown Mall is going viral.

YouTube user “BackyardExploration” took a creepy trip into the shopping center that closed in July of last year.

The cameraman uses his flashlight and whispers a description of what he sees in a hushed play-by-play. The video shows broken glass everywhere, plants taking over and merchandise that wasn’t sold filling store aisles. The images in the video look like something out of a horror film.

The videographer takes a tour of many of the mall’s former attractions and areas off-limits to the public.  He tours the movie theatre, store back-rooms and corridors.  He finds leaking ceilings, moldy walls and a lot of unclaimed pictures.  At one point he finds some one’s bed and says, “Looks like someone lives in here.”

Some observations from my trip to Ukraine

Good Article

Tony Petersen

The war has affected everything. The economy runs on loans from foreign governments that Ukraine will be hard-pressed to ever pay back. Thousand have been displaced or lost their jobs. The Donetsk region has been hit especially hard. Villages have been decimated — caved in walls, collapsed roofs, and broken windows are the norm.

This re-post is about a man and his Zenith. I know the feeling owning a 1963 Imperial/Telefunken console type radio. I think it is especially important to note the work done to the interior electrical chassis and very nice orange capacitors to switch out the cardboard ones. I will be posting an article in the coming month about my own radio and the quirks of restoring it, I felt this made a great intro to it. Great job David!

A while back I picked up an old 1940s Zenith radio.  It uses vacuum tubes unlike radios today.  Of course when I found mine it didn’t work and was well worn.  Here’s a pic of it when I bought it.  The wood veneer had been damaged in multiple places and it appeared that the edge had suffered a little water damage.  The wooden “feet” that are supposed to stick out at the bottom had both been broken.  One of the knobs was missing and the other damaged.  The translucent yellow wheels rotate separately from the black knobs.  The knob’s function on the left is on/off and volume.  The wheel on the left adjusts the tone of the radio which seems to just increase the treble slightly.  On the other side, the knob adjusts the tuning frequency and the wheel adjusts the band.

Here’s a close up of the right hand…

Some interesting facts about a very unique historical achievement in our world.

NewsFeed

While digging a well near Mount Li in Shaanxi, China, in 1974, a farmer stumbled upon one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of the century: the tomb of Qin Shi Huang Di, an Emperor who died in 210 B.C. and was buried with a terra-cotta entourage. Since then, archaeologists have spent the past 40 years carefully uncovering the life-size warriors from 22 sq. mi. (57 sq km) of earth-and-wood pits.

So far, excavations at the Museum of the Terracotta Army, located roughly 25 miles (40 km) east of Xi’an, have unearthed about 2,000 of the 6,000 figures thought to exist. Alongside the subterranean army lie horses, chariots, weaponry — even acrobats meant to entertain Emperor Qin in death. Scholars say the warriors were buried with China’s first Emperor to protect him in the afterlife and were never meant to be seen. Today, this so-called eighth wonder of the world…
