Volume 49 - No. 16
By Pete Peterson
Most people would have ignored Thomas Alva Edison’s remarks, chalking them up to fatigue. As usual, he’d worked 22 of the last 24 hours. Nikola Tesla had just completed a series of drawings and wished to be paid, so what the hey? But, these two men were not like most people. They were geniuses, who literally revolutionized how America and the world lives. To understand the full impact of Edison’s criticism and Tesla’s deadly response, we have to more fully examine their accomplishments together and apart. Question: Did you turn on a light today? Start your car? The Paper - 760.747.7119
Use an electric iron? Check your cell phone for messages?
If you took any of these actions, listened to the radio, place a perishable item in the refrigerator to keep it from spoiling, you have Edison and Tesla to thank. Edison and His Inventions
Of the two, Edison is more recognizable primarily because as every school girl or boy knows, he invented the incandescent light bulb. Tesla? His inventions are less well-known but are used daily. Edison became famous before he was 30, successful as an inventor, manufacturer and
businessman. In his 84 years on this planet, he acquired an unbelievable number of 1,093 patents (singly or jointly). He was the driving force behind such innovations as the phonograph, the light bulb and the motion picture camera. One of his inventions, the Edison Writer, revolutionized business, by allowing men and women to dictate letters and correspondence at any time, simply by speaking into a microphone so their words could be heard later. Sound familiar? Yeah. The granddaddy of the hand-held voice recorder you can purchase for $49.99 at Best Buy.
Edison changed industry as we know it, creating the world’s first industrial park – much like

those of today – and in the process transformed tiny Menlo Park, New Jersey into a bastion of creativity, which by extension, generated thousands of jobs for thousands of people the world over. Edison’s legacy is that of a great inventor, but he also possessed the talent, skill and drive to run a scientific laboratory while simultaneously manufacturing and marketing his discoveries to a public hungry for easier ways to perform tedious, timeconsuming chores. As a child, Edison’s greatest asset, according to biographers, was his ability to persevere on a problem until it was solved. Born on a cold February day in 1847, in the small Ohio town of

Milan, the seventh and last child of Samuel Edison Jr. and Nancy Elliott Edison, he was one of four siblings to gain adulthood. That he received little formal education is wellknown, since he left school at age 12 to work on the railroad between Detroit and Port Huron, Michigan, where his family had moved a year earlier. Edison died on October 18, 1931. Presidents and dignitaries including two prime ministers attended his funeral; newspapers announced his death on pages with black borders. By then, he had amassed a record 1,093 patents, including 389 for electric light and power, 195 for the phonograph, 150 for the telegraph, 141 for storage batteries and 34 for the telephone. During the War Between the States, Edison travelled the country as a telegrapher. A serious hearing problem, variously attributed to scarlet fever, mastoiditis or a blow to the head curtailed that career choice. (An account in one biography attributed his hearing loss to being pulled from beneath a moving

Regardless, Edison had a difficult time hearing the auditory signals - dots and dashes - of the telegraph. To off-set this disadvantage, he tried to invent a device that would make it possible to read these signals, not be heard. One of these devices, a printer that converted electrical signals to letters, was the forerunner of today’s fax machine. In early 1869, Edison quit telegraphy to pursue inventions on a full-time basis. Edison emerges as an Inventor
From 1870 to 1875, Edison developed products for Western Union Telegraph Company (then the industry leader) and other telegraph companies. His mother died in 1871. Heart-broken, Edison sought solace from a 16-yearold neighborhood girl, Mary Stillwell, whom he later married. In 1873, despite a healthy income generated by his telegraph work, Edison had a financial shortfall. His father’s loan rescued him, and Edison built a laboratory and machine

Introduced in 1877, this device greatly improved telephone voice quality making it possible to transmit voices at a higher volume with greater clarity. (A modified version is used in today’s phones.) That same year, using his knowledge of the telegraph and telephone, Edison invented the phonograph, which recorded sound as indentations on a sheet of paraffin-coated paper. When the paper was moved beneath a stylus, the sounds were reproduced. The device made an immediate splash, though it took years before it could be produced and sold commercially. Readers of Napoleon Hill’s alltime best-selling business book, Think and Grow Rich, will recall that Edwin C.

In 1878, Edison displayed his amazing ability to focus on a problem until a workable product emerged. In a decision that impacted the world forever, Edison set out to invent an inexpensive electric light to replace the gaslight–a challenge scientists had grappled with for over 50 years. With prominent financial backers like J.P. Morgan and the Vanderbilt family, he set up the Edison Electric Light Company and began research and development.
His breakthrough came in October 1879 with a bulb that used a platinum filament; in the summer of 1880 he hit on carbonized bamboo as a viable alternative to this filament. This proved to be the key to a longlasting and affordable light bulb. One bulb produced at that time still chased away the darkness some 34 years later. According to laboratory records, Edison tried 10,059 experiments before finding success in this endeavor.
In 1881, showing his business acumen, Edison set up an elecEdison and Tesla Cont. on Page 3

Edison’s early incandescent lighting systems had problems, yet they were used to great acclaim at the Paris Lighting Exhibition in 1881 and the Crystal Palace in London in 1882, and at major hotels in large cities across the world. As with many innovations, uninformed users touted ‘the facts’ that as the bulbs were turned on they emitted dangerous rays that caused serious illnesses. To eliminate this danger, establishments with large numbers of bulbs installed hired “Light Switch Men” to risk illness and turn on the lights for users. Often to the applause of assembled crowds. As Edison succeeded, competitors emerged. One of these was George Westinghouse, a proponent of alternating current (AC) - as opposed to Edison’s use of direct current (DC). Remember

that feud we spoke of earlier? The seeds have been planted, and by 1889, AC would dominate the field. Edison’s Later Inventions
Edison, like most mortals, was not immune to tragedy. In August of 1884, his wife Mary, died. In February 1886 he remarried Mirna Miller – the details of their first marriage and subsequent courtship is foggy at best; they had three children together. Soon, Edison built a large estate and research laboratory in West Orange, New Jersey, with a machine shop, library and buildings for metallurgy, chemistry and woodworking. Spurred by the work of others in improving the phonograph, Edison worked to produce a commercial model, hoping to link it to a zoetrope, a device that strung together a series of photographs so that the images appeared to move.
In conjunction with William K.L. Dickson, Edison succeeded in constructing one of the earliest working motion picture cameras, the Kinetograph, and a viewing instrument, the

Kinetoscope, which he patented in 1891.
After years of heated legal battles with competitors in the fledgling motion-picture industry, Edison stopped working with moving film by 1918. In the interim, he experienced success developing an alkaline storage battery, - an important power supply for submarines, ocean-going vessels and yes, electric vehicles. The ground work for the famous feud was now in place. In 1912, automaker Henry Ford asked Edison to design a battery for the automotive selfstarter, to be introduced on the iconic Model T. This collaboration began a continuing relationship between the two American entrepreneurs. Despite the relatively limited success of his later inventions (including his long struggle to perfect a magnetic ore-separator), Edison continued to work into his 80s. His rise from poor, uneducated railroad worker to one of the most famous men in the world made him a folk hero. More than any other individual, he is credited with building the

framework for modern technology in the age of electricity. Enter Mr. Tesla
From his childhood in Serbia, Nikola Tesla was considered an eccentric. During his early life, he was stricken with illness time and time again, suffering a peculiar affliction where blinding flashes of light appeared, often accompanied by hallucinations, causing Tesla great discomfort. By his teens he’d learned to repress these attacks, except when under great stress.
Shortly after graduating high school, Tesla suffered a devastating bout with cholera and nearly died. Bedridden for nine months his doctors told his family to plan his funeral. He recovered only to undergo another debilitating trauma a few years later. This time, the nature of the illness and its causes were a complete mystery. Tesla's physical senses, which had always been remarkably acute, now seemed to operate in overdrive, paralyzing him at times with an overabundance of sensations.

The board approved her contract for $245,975 per year in the new position, with 2.5 percent annual increases, longevity bonuses at five, 10 and 15 years of service, and stipends for her master’s and doctoral degrees
“I’m very excited to be returning to Escondido, and look forward to working with the governing board to enhance and increase opportunities for every student to be successful,” Staffieri said. “We have a lot of students in the district, and we have a lot of needs, including social and emotional needs, academic needs and attendance.”
In the same meeting, the board ratified a teacher’s contract, approved raises for several top administrators, and voted to eliminate 11 nonteaching staff positions and reduce the hours of four others. Some of those are vacant positions that will be cut, while others will be layoffs. As one of their final actions of the evening, the school board discussed whether they should allow campuses to name benches, facilities or scholarships for living people as well as those who have died.

Root canal done. Fitting for a crown - that, too, went off smoothly and in no time at all my visit to Dr. Hurt’s Clinic was over. It may sound strange to say this but having a root canal done at Dr. Hurt’s office was actually a pleasant experience. How many times have you been able to say a dental procedure was a pleasant experience?
It’s commonplace at Dr. Hurt’s. He has just put together such a terrific staff that his practice is a wonderful success story and could well serve as a business model for any new dentists who are entering private practice. As should be evident by my comments, if you are in need of a dentist I highly recommend Dr Greg Hurt and his staff.

Tesla shunned physical contact – he had a particular aversion to touching human hair - a confirmed germaphobe, he avoided shaking hands with new acquaintances saying he’d injured his hands in a laboratory accident. He stated several times he’d never had a romantic relationship of any kind. One story has it that a female acquaintance grew enamored of Tesla, and tried to kiss him, causing the startled young man to flee in terror.
Tesla said only in adulthood did he discover his knack for inventing. He discounted his early years as a time of undisciplined impulses, lacking focus. Still, at an early age he invented a wide array of creations, including a remarkable machine powered by a usual natural energy source: June bugs - or to Europeans - May bugs. He

Tesla studied electricity at Graz Polytechnic Institute in Poland. An extraordinary student, he frequently enraged his professors by questioning the technological status quo with insights that surpassed his instructors. He rebelled most stringently against the acceptance of direct current as the sole means of delivering electrical power. To him it was plain that DC was inefficient and incapable of adequately transmitting power over long distances. Talk of an "alternating current" system was theoretical, but Tesla reasoned no one had investigated the process long enough to understand how it might work. AC was looked upon as fanciful by the scientific establishment, much as cold fusion is today. Tesla's merest suggestion of AC brought him scorn, which only served to encourage him to find a solution to the enticing riddle.

During Tesla's sophomore year of college, his father was felled by a stroke. Nikola returned home; his father died soon after. Tesla never returned to the Polytechnic Institute. Lacking funds for tuition, he took a job at a government telegraph office. Tesla despaired for his interrupted education but held on to his dream of becoming an electrical pioneer. At this time Tesla was struck by acute hypersensitivity which made him a bedridden invalid. (Considering the depressing nature of his life then, many authorities attribute this bizarre affliction as psychosomatic.) Regardless when Tesla emerged from his prolonged fugue state, he was convinced he knew how to attain alternating current. Tesla felt if two coils were positioned at right angles and supplied with alternating current out of phase, creating a magnetic field that would rotate, eliminating the need for the cumbersome commutator used in direct current motors of the day. Tesla was convinced his idea would work without testing. Dreaming it was proof enough for him. This method

would be used to develop inventions throughout his career: no journals, no blueprints, no prototypes.
Now that he possessed the answer to alternating current, Tesla had to put his theory into practice. Hired in 1882 by Continental Edison Company in Paris, he quickly distinguished himself as a fine engineer. While on assignment to Strasburg, Germany, in 1883, he constructed after-hours, his first induction motor. Invited to America to work for the parent company, he arrived eager and excited. His assignment? Redesign Edison's machines. The Feud Thickens
Edison set Tesla’s work hours as 10:30 am to 5:00 the next morning, seven days a week. Even though Tesla did not believe in Edison's direct current motors he worked to improve them. Edison bet Tesla he could not improve on perfection, but if by chance he succeeded, Edison promised him a $50,000 bonus. Tesla worked hard to improve Edison’s inven-

tions, since the reward money would allow him set up a lab of his own.
In short order, Tesla drew twenty-four new designs to replace Edison’s old ones. Edison was delighted with the results, but refused to pay Tesla the $50,000 as promised, saying it was a bet with no handshake or meaning. When Tesla asked Edison for the money, Edison said, "Tesla, you don't understand our American humor. You will when you are a full American."
Angered and feeling cheated, Tesla supposedly called Edison a fraud and ripped up several motor drawings he’d made, vowing to run Edison out of business, assuring him the information he’d shared with Edison about alternating current would make “even a charlatan successful.” Edison responded, “I don’t need your kind around here. I have Charles.” Edison was talking of Charles Proteus Steinmetz, a mathematician, electrical engineer and college professor. Many observers wondered how Steinmetz managed to exit Ellis Island, where he’d passed through several years earlier. Classified as an imbecil due to his ungainly appearance – a large head, exceedingly long arms and oversized feet - Steinmetz was agile enough to have gained a reputation as a competent soccer player in his native Germany. Steinmetz appealed to Edison’s business sense, assuring him that developing alternating current technology was a wise investment. This led Edison to adopt AC. He’s quoted as saying, “If not for Charles Steinmetz, we’d have a Direct Current power plant on every street corner in America.” Edison’s change of heart led to the establishment of the electric power industry in the United States as we know it today. Tesla, the Business Man
When Tesla left Edison’s lab, a group of investors contacted him hoping to take advantage of his scientific knowledge and hatred of Edison. They made him an offer he could not refuse: Form the Tesla Electric Light Company, to compete directly with Edison.
As usual, Tesla responded with good results. He developed a light that was simpler, more reliable, safer and more economical than Edison’s version. He patented it and saw to its installation throughout the area. However, the return on investment his investor’s envisioned was not present, so they took over the company, leaving Tesla virtually destitute with no ownership of the patents he’d developed. Tesla was forced to work as a laborer, digging ditches and building streets. However, he received several patents during this time, though many of them were so advanced as to be un-usable at that time. One of these which transformed heat directly into mechanical or electrical energy was “rediscovered" in the 1970's, yet Tesla was not credited with inventing it.
George Westinghouse, founder of the electronic giant, victimized Tesla also. A severe competitor of Edison, Westinghouse entered into an agreement with Tesla to develop his alternating current motor that Westinghouse intended to sell world-wide. (He owned most of the electric companies at that time.) Like Edison, Westinghouse was ruthless, but Tesla liked him and sold him his patents for $60,000 ($5,000 in cash and 150 shares of stock), starting work for Westinghouse. Tesla was supposed to receive $2.50 for every horsepower of electricity Westinghouse sold, which would make him a billionaire several times over, quickly. Alas. Due to a bookkeeping lapse these payments never occurred. In his later years, Tesla gave laboratory exhibitions where he lighted lamps without wires by allowing electricity to flow through his body, further allaying fears that alternating current caused disease. His Tesla coil is used in today’s television sets and other electronic equipment. During the 1890s, Mark Twain struck up a friendship with Tesla, often visiting him in his lab. In 1894 Tesla photographed the great American writer in one of the first pictures ever lit by phosphorescent light. More on The Feud

Over the past few years, the Ceder, Witch, Cocos, Guejito, Paradise and Lilac fires have taught us a lot. The need to be proactive is critical. That’s why I introduced Assembly Bill 19, for fire prevention and roadway vegetation management. Auto-related wildfires are a major problem in California. In 2016 and 2017, almost 25% of local wildfires were vehicle-related. The seventh most destructive fire in state history, last year’s Carr Fire in Northern California, killed eight people, burned over 229,000 acres and destroyed more than 1,500 structures. The fire started when sparks caused by a flat tire ignited brush along the highway. We can prevent many of these fires by eliminating the fuel source. AB 19 will establish a General Fund grant program to help county road maintenance departments and local fire districts purchase vegetation management equipment to mow brush along county-maintained streets and roads within High Fire Hazard Severity Zones. Poor vehicle maintenance, a falling catalytic converter, dragging metal, sparks from flat tires or simply pulling over to the side of the road Living Large in San Marcos
Fish House Vera Cruz may well be the best seafood restaurant in Southern California. This year they are celebrating their 40th year as a fixture in San Marcos’ Old California Restaurant Row. They have long been known up and down the coast for the variety and quality of their fresh seafood. In San Marcos we may tend to take them for granted but we are lucky indeed to have them nearby. But “living large” isn’t a restaurant revue, it’s about adventure and finding hidden gems, and the Fish House has one. Just for fun, start counting the number of “fish” you can see in the architecture as you approach the front door. Once inside, let the hostess know that you are going to “the Bar.” Then step up to the showcase and admire the “catch of the day” display. When you’re finished admiring the fresh catch make a left and wind your way past the huge fish tank and into the always dimly lit bar. The narrow aisle between the bar stools and tables leads out the back door to the enclosed veranda with “sunbrellas” and fire pits. Happy hour runs from 3-6 in the bar/veranda and that’s why we’re here. The happy hour menu has a large selection of unique seafood treats (the scallops rumaki are to die for) and an amazing array of libations but we came for a couple of house specialty items that have been long time favorites with us, the Fish Soup and
can ignite dry brush. These sorts of vehicle mishaps probably can’t be prevented, but fires can be prevented by simply clearing the brush.
AB 19 will help local agencies purchase equipment they need to prevent nearly one quarter of all wildfires. The bill is supported by a growing list of Fire Districts including the North County Fire Protection District, The Valley Center Fire Protection District, the Bonita – Sunnyside fire Protection District, along with statewide agencies such as the California Forestry Association, Rural Counties Association and Cal Fire Chiefs. The heavy rain we had also means more dry fuel along our roadways this summer. With AB 19, we can significantly reduce wildfires in our state and region.

As they process the fresh catch of fish and shellfish each day, certain choice cuts from the trimming process go into pot along with seasoning and vegetables. The fish soup is served in large bowls, piping hot along with warm rolls and butter. There are always at least a half dozen identifiable kinds of fish shellfish, mollusks and shrimp, but each time it’s a different mix. To accompany the fish soup we share a loaf of “Rockbread.” This is a small loaf of bread smothered in the kind of spinach and cheese sauce used to make Oysters Rockefeller. The loaf is baked and served sliced into six pieces. It is incredibly rich. If you stuck with water, your dinner tab for two is less than 20 bucks.

Bob sighs, "Well, it seems I'm best suited for unemployment." Older Men Scam
Women often receive warnings about protecting themselves at the mall and in dark parking lots, etc. This is the first warning I have seen for men. I wanted to pass it on in case you haven't heard about it. A 'heads up' for those men who may be regular customers at Lowe's, Home Depot, Costco, or even WalMart. This one caught me totally by surprise. Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping. Simply going out to get supplies has turned out to be quite traumatic. Don't be naive enough to think it couldn't happen to you or your friends. Here's how the scam works; Two very beautiful, college-age girls will come over to your car or truck as you are packing your purchases into your vehicle. They both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy Tshirts. (It's impossible not to look). When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say 'No' but instead ask for a ride to McDonald's. You agree and they climb into the vehicle. On the way, they start undressing. Then one of them starts crawling all over you, while the other one steals your wallet.
I had my wallet stolen November 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, again on the 17th, 20th, 24th, and the 29th. Also December 1st, 2nd, 8th, twice on the 16th &17th, and very likely again this upcoming weekend. So tell your friends to be careful. What a horrible way to take advantage of us older men. Warn your friends to be vigilant.
* Wal-Mart has wallets on sale for $2.99 each. I found even cheaper ones for $.99 at the Dollar Store and bought them out in three of their stores. * Also, you never get to eat at McDonald's. I've already lost 11 pounds just running back and forth from Lowe's, to Home Depot, to Wal-Mart.
* So please, send this on to all the older men that you know and warn them to be on the lookout for this scam. (The best times are just before lunch and around 4:30 in the afternoon.) A Blast from the Past

An Iconic Time For Roadside Education
If the name “Burma Shave” has little or no meaning to you, then read on for a quick “roadside” history lesson in advertising that was popular to motorists of yesteryear. If you know about the signs, you’ll enjoy some pleasant memories. If you don’t remember, then here’s a fun look back at an iconic period of Americana.
A loyal reader reminded me of those days during the twenties through the sixties when U.S. highways across America had educational tinged with entertainment along the way. Drivers and their passengers were cleverly greeted by strings of roadside signs sponsored by Burma Shave, a popular men’s shaving product of that era.
first sign-series Burma-Shave appeared on U.S. Highway 65 near Lakeville, Minnesota, in 1926, and remained a major roadside advertising component until 1963 throughout most of the United States.
In the early days, the southwestern states of New Mexico, Arizona, and Nevada were not included because they were thought to have insufficient road traffic. Many highways in those paved. even weren’t states Massachusetts was eliminated due to that state's high-cost land rentals and thick roadside foliage. Typically, six consecutive small poetic signs would be posted along the edge of highways, spaced for sequential reading by passing motorists. The last sign was almost always the name of “Burma Shave.”
This use of a series of small signs, each of which bore part of a commercial message, was a successful approach to highway advertising during the early years of highway travel, drawing the attention of passing motorists who were curious to learn the punchline. As the modern Interstate system expanded in the late 1950s and vehicle speeds increased, it became more difficult to attract motorists' attention with the small signs. When the company was acquired by Philip Morris, the signs were discontinued on advice of the company’s legal counsel.
Some of the signs featured safety messages about speeding instead of clever advertising sayings.
Today, examples of Burma-Shave signs are at The House on the Rock in Spring Green, Wisconsin. Re-creations of Burma-Shave signs also appear on Arizona’s portion of the old U.S. Highway 66, between Ash Fork, and Kingman, as well as along old U.S. Highway 30 near Ogden, Iowa. Other examples are displayed at The Henry Ford museum in Dearborn, Michigan, a rest area along Interstate 44 in
Missouri between Rolla and Springfield, the Forney Transportation Museum in Denver, and the Virginia Museum of Transportation in Roanoke. Here are a few examples of the popular, poetic roadside signs (each line was on a separate sign): DON'T STICK YOUR ELBOW OUT SO FAR IT MAY GO HOME IN ANOTHER CAR.

These phrases included "Don't touch that dial," "Carbon copy," "You sound like a broken record" and "Hung out to dry." A bevy of readers have asked me to shine light on more faded words and expressions, and I am happy to oblige:
Back in the olden days we had a lot of moxie. We'd put on our best bib and tucker and straighten up and fly right. Hubba-hubba! We'd cut a rug in some juke joint and then go necking and petting and smooching and spooning and billing and cooing and pitching woo in hot rods and jalopies in some passion pit or lovers' lane. Heavens to Betsy! Gee whillikers! Jumpin' Jehoshaphat! Holy moley! We were in like Flynn and living the life of Riley, and even a regular guy couldn't accuse us of being a knucklehead, a nincompoop or a pill. Not for all the tea in China! Back in the olden days, life used to be swell, but when's the last time anything was swell? Swell has gone the way of beehives, pageboys and the D.A.; of spats, knickers, fedoras, poodle skirts, saddle shoes and pedal pushers. Oh, my aching back. Kilroy was here, but he isn't anymore. Like Washington Irving's Rip Van Winkle and Kurt Vonnegut's Billy Pilgrim, we have become unstuck in time. We wake up from what surely has been just a short nap, and
before we can say, "I'll be a monkey's uncle!" or "This is a fine kettle of fish!" we discover that the words we grew up with, the words that seemed omnipresent as oxygen, have vanished with scarcely a notice from our tongues and our pens and our keyboards.
Poof, poof, poof go the words of our youth, the words we've left behind. We blink, and they're gone, evanesced from the landscape and wordscape of our perception, like Mickey Mouse wristwatches, hula hoops, skate keys, candy cigarettes, little wax bottles of colored sugar water and an organ grinder's monkey. Where have all those phrases gone? Long time passing. Where have all those phrases gone? Long time ago: Pshaw. The milkman did it. Think about the starving Armenians. Bigger than a bread box. Banned in Boston. The very idea! It's your nickel. Don't forget to pull the chain. Knee high to a grasshopper. Turn-of-the-century. Iron curtain. Domino theory. Fail safe. Civil defense. Fiddlesticks! You look like the wreck of the Hesperus. Cooties. Going like sixty. I'll see you in the funny papers. Don't take any wooden nickels. Heavens to Murgatroyd! And awa-a-ay we go! Oh, my stars and garters! It turns out there are more of these lost words and expressions than Carter had liver pills. This can be disturbing stuff, this winking out of the words of our youth, these words
that lodge in our heart's deep core. But just as one never steps into the same river twice, one cannot step into the same language twice. Even as one enters, words are swept downstream into the past, forever making a different river.
We of a certain age have been blessed to live in changeful times. For a child each new word is like a shiny toy, a toy that has no age. We at the other end of the chronological arc have the advantage of remembering there are words that once did not exist and there were words that once strutted their hour upon the earthly stage and now are heard no more, except in our collective memory. It's one of the greatest advantages of aging. We can have archaic
and eat it, too.

Edison and Tesla Cont. from Page 6
When Edison hired Tesla, he thought his ideas were “splendid” but “utterly impractical.” That Tesla made no mention of how much money a patent could generate was silly in the eyes of Edison.
Tesla was at odds with Edison in other areas: He felt that the sun could be harnessed to provide cheap energy and no company should make money from that source. Edison opposed this idea. Clash of Methods
Due to his lack of formal education, Edison relied heavily on tedious experimentation for most of his discoveries. Tesla, in contrast, was an emotionally driven dreamer where theory prevailed over implementation. Later in life, each man publicly criticized the other’s work. Tesla was a germaphobe, fastidiously clean to the point of (allegedly) using seventeen clean towels a day and claiming a “violent aversion against the earrings of women.” He once told the New York Times that Edison "had no hobby, cared for no amusement of any kind and lived in utter disregard of the most elementary rules of hygiene."
Edison and Tesla were alike however in some equally irreconcilable ways. Both were egocentrics who abhorred egocentricity in others. Both required little sleep, which must have made for many long, grumpy hours in the workshop. Edison’s least favorite of Tesla’s “impractical” ideas was the concept of using alternating current (AC) technology to bring electricity to the people. Edison insisted that his own direct current (DC) system was superior and safer. But AC technology, which allows the flow of energy to periodically change direction, is more practical for transmitting massive quantities of energy, as is required by large cities and industry. In the end, AC won out. Mostly.
Westinghouse fulfilled Tesla’s dream of building a power plant at Niagara Falls to power New York City. He applied Tesla’s findings to the power grids in use today. Edison’s original point about the practicality of DC is well-taken, however:
Alternating current floods massive amounts of energy into household appliances, making it necessary for most plug-in devices to internally convert AC back to DC. (That’s why your laptop has a cord). Tesla on Edison
"If he had a needle to find in a haystack he would not stop to reason where it was most likely to be, but would proceed at once, with the feverish diligence of a bee, to examine straw after straw until he found the object of his search. ... I was almost a sorry witness of such doings, knowing that a little theory and calculation would have saved him ninety per cent of his labor." —New York Times, October 19, 1931 (the day after Edison died.) Today we know Nikola Tesla has an electric car company and a rock band named after him. Legendary rock musician David Bowie played him in the 2006 movie "The Prestige." Tesla has hundreds of patents registered in his name - yet he never won a Nobel Prize for his work. Many of his inventions and discoveries are prototypes used today.
What would the world be like if these two visionaries had been able to work together? No one can say for sure, but John Cassidy, a professor at MIT, in his book wrote: “We’d probably have those flying cars promised in the 50s, moving sidewalks to control pedestrian traffic, stop signs with sensors that change according to traffic flow and certainly homes and industry with solar power and electric cars. Who knows, maybe a medical device that determines malfunctioning body organs which are then automatically uploaded to a medical center, reducing medical costs and leading to greater longevity.” If one can feud, one can dream, can’t one?

Learn About Camp Spero at The Elizabeth Hospice – Childhood grief affects 1 in 5 children under the age of 18. Their grief can put them at increased risk for problems in school, substance abuse, depression and anxiety. That’s why The Elizabeth Hospice is committed to helping children like Bella find a brighter future. After Bella’s brother Paul died from a seizure, her mother reached out to The Elizabeth Hospice for help. She enrolled Bella in the summer grief camp that is open to all children and teens (ages 7 to 17) in the community. Camp Spero (spero is Latin for hope) is a weekend camp where youth honor and memorialize their loved one, make friends with others who are facing similar circumstances, learn
coping skills, and have fun. For Bella, age 14, it was a life-changing experience. “Before going to camp, I couldn’t talk about the day I found out that Paul has passed,” said Bella. “I pretended it never happened. Now I can share the story. I look back at that day as a memory, not a nightmare.” “My favorite part about camp was the ceremony at the lake. There was music playing and we were all crying. But it was a good cry. I was in this community of people who were vulnerable but strong together. That felt like magic.” Camp is offered free of charge, thanks to the philanthropic support of individuals and organizations. Now until May 17, a generous donor will match every gift to Camp Spero – up to a total of $10,000. You can help twice as many of our community’s grieving children feel hopeful again. Please consider making a gift today at www.elizabethhospice.org/campsperomatch and sharing this amazing opportunity with your family and friends. The Elizabeth Hospice is located at 500 La Terraza Blvd, Ste. 130, Escondido, 92025.

Due to the water damage, Oasis no longer has the ability to continue the majority of their Inland classes until all the repairs are completed. As a result, the City of Escondido was determined to help the local nonprofit find locations around town which would allow the organization to con-

They Just Need a “Mew” More Things – Make a gift today to help thousands of kittens this season. This year, nearly 3,000 kittens will receive lifesaving care in the Kitten Nursery of the San Diego Humane Society. That’s a lot of tiny lives, a lot of cuteness and a lot of supplies. That’s why your gift during our virtual Kitten Shower will mean so much. Helping kittens grow from the time they’re newborns until they’re ready for adoption requires aroundthe-clock care and plenty of resources. Whether your gift helps bottle-feed the smallest newborns or keeps kittens’ bedding clean and soft as they grow, it will make a world of difference to thousands of little ones. More kittens are arriving every day, and our nursery is still in need of plenty of important supplies, including laundry detergent and dryer sheets, dish soap, bottle nipples and specialized formula, microchip scanners, and more. Please visit our full Kitten Shower registry to choose a gift that will help save tiny lives today. Thank you! We are so grateful to everyone who has already sent gifts for the kittens! The earliest arrivals in our Kitten Nursery are already being comforted and cared for with the items you chose for them.

The Pastor Says...
and was placed in a tomb. On the third day, he was resurrected from the dead. Easter is the celebration of that event. To His followers, past and present, it proves that He is who He claimed to be… the living Son of God.
Pastor Sam Brumit Mission 316, San Marcos
It’s Easter season again…
It’s Easter season again. Aside from being a time of year when the cold weather is nearly behind us and warm days upon us, it’s a time to think about the meaning of this holiday. If its significance is not something you are familiar with, it may simply be events like egg hunts for kids and baskets of chocolate eggs with some toys thrown in. In reality, “Easter” has nothing to do with bunnies or eggs, but rather, it has everything to do with a man named Jesus. Jesus of Nazareth died on a cross (a form of Roman execution)
This is the reason that each year someone may invite you to their church to celebrate the fact Jesus was raised from the dead… and that He offers forgiveness of sin and new life.
The next time a friend, business associate, neighbor or family member invites you to church (often at Easter or Christmas) give it some consideration. It’s possible you may find a living hope you have been needing in your life. If your experience with “religion” as a child was not all you had hoped, it might be time to revisit the role God plays in your life’s purpose. It’s worth the investigation! __________________________ Mission 316 is a non-denominational church which meets at 3 Civic Center Drive in San Marcos – directly across from the San Marcos Public Library. The service starts at 10 AM. 760.659.0316 for INFO.

Improving the Roads We All Travel On
Like all cities, San Marcos has a unique blend of traffic patterns and routes that experience more traffic volume than others. We are conveniently situated between two major freeways, which means our roads easily take our residents where they need to go. It also means that San Marcos thoroughfares might be choice routes for others as well. Over the past few years, the City has implemented many improvements to alleviate traffic in key areas including the: • Coordination of traffic signals on San Marcos Boulevard to improve travel times; • Replacement of outdated lights with LED traffic signals to enhance visibility and safety; • Installation of new signals at key intersections to provide for safer travel and crossings; • Advancement of our City’s signal reliability and speed with our citywide ethernet project and installation of fiber optic communication lines. Each of these initiatives, and many others, mean that the City of San Marcos is continually working to improve the infrastructure, systems and technologies used to manage our City’s traffic. For more information about the city’s traffic engineering program, visit www.sanmarcos.net/trafficmanagement or email me at email@example.com
Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” Mcnamara Greetings Escondido
This week was full of meetings over a wide spectrum. There is not enough space in this column to review all the topics, so suffice to say there is a lot going on that all share the common purpose of making Escondido a better community. There are two areas however, that I would like to focus on.
The first is that I had the opportunity to attend the Lao New Year Celebration at the CCAE. It was a wonderful event that offered a glimpse into the Lao culture. I was glad they chose Escondido to hold the celebration, because it represents, despite recent negative news, that Escondido is in fact a welcoming community. They plan to come back next year as well.
The second is the Library volunteer luncheon. A city library is a pillar of that community. What it looks like, how the residents feel about it, support it, etc, all make a statement about the community. What was so impressive was how many volunteers we have and how long they have been volunteering. We had one who was honored for 30 years of service. I don’t know of a better way to brag about our city than to brag about our residents. We live in a great community! Thank you. Semper Fi, Mac - Paul P. McNamara, Mayor of Escondido

It’s no secret that skateboarding has been embedded in the Southern California culture for decades, but did you know that the iconic sport has deep roots in the city of
Our city has served as a playground to many professional and legendary skateboarders and home to lots of skate-related businesses and organizations.
Vista recently welcomed a new addition to the local skateboard scene, the California Training Facility, an elite indoor skateboard center. It is the first of its kind in the world, designed to meet the criteria of what skateboarders will see in both major pro skateboard contests and qualifying series, as well as the Olympic courses leading up to the 2020 games in Tokyo. The facility is already attracting elite talent from all over the world. This elevates our city’s profile on the international stage, and the incoming visitors have the potential to also stay at our hotels, eat at our restaurants, and enjoy the downtown area during their stay. We hope to see more interaction between these athletes and the local skating community!

Important information for Microsoft and Chrome users part 2. Last week we covered problems #1 & #2, we conclude with this discussion of problem #3.
#3. The loss of data and repair expense caused by Microsoft’s use of Windows10 “Home” PCs to test and debug updates prior to the releasing them to Windows10 “Professional” and “Enterprise” customers. Popular names for Microsoft’s Windows 10 “Home” OS (operating system) are “Win10 retail”, “Win10 Guinea Pig” and “Win10CD” (Crash Dummy). Win10 “Home” joins Windows ME, Vista and Windows 8 in the long line of Microsoft OS designed
Taken Too Soon - We Miss You Forever in our Hearts and Thoughts
Win10 “Home” is the OS in millions of small business and home PCs. To Microsoft and the PC industry, Retail buyers of Win10 “Home” PCs are low value “bottom feeders.” Because price competition keeps retail PCs cheap, margins low and profitability slim, to them the “Home” user is Rodney Dangerfield, “He gets no respect.” But while Microsoft may regard the Win10 Home users as a necessary nuisance, the Win10 “Home” PCs they purchase are a vital asset. The Win10 “Home” operating system turns cheap retail PCs into smart, workstations of incalculable value to Microsoft for doing market research and software testing.
Win10 “Home” is trained “call home” and report browsing activities. Artificial and machine intelligence masticate the raw data into meaningful information to be used by advertisers and others who can target you and others with information that is specific to your particular needs and life-style. While the idea that you are being spied on may make you uncomfortable, at least Microsoft’s information gathering activities don’t interfere with using your PC for its intended purpose. That isn’t true for the Win10 “Home” second major function, to serve as a software “test workstation” for Microsoft’s development engineers. Prior to the 2015 release of Windows10 Microsoft realized that it would be highly advantageous to have a vast network of “beta-test workstations” to accelerate their engineering

development, test and debugging efforts. In a stroke of utter genius they found a way to not only install this network of “test stations,” they even got their “Rodney Dangerfield” users to pay for them. They created the Windows10 “Home” operating system that had all the test and reporting parameters needed by their engineers, then they designed the OS so that the computer “owners” could not interfere with Microsoft’s use of or access to the computers. Then they forced PC manufacturers to use only Win10 in new PCs. Finally they offered and then forced free Win10 upgrades on unsuspecting users of Win7/8. Now there are as many Win 10 PCs as there are Win 7.
Microsoft’s new releases and debugs. “Home” users pay the price so that the high-end and more tech savvy users of Windows10 “Professional” and “Enterprise” don’t have to suffer Microsoft’s development woes. These are the users that Microsoft, Dell, HP and Lenovo really care about. These are corporations, schools and governments. IT professionals purchase and manage their computers and networks. They buy high quality computers and they don’t allow Microsoft to use them for development testing or data gathering.
hundred. Of course, many of those copies are not in good condition, as they might have tape on them, staples, even thumbtack holes. There could even be tears.
Today it’s a done deal. Hundreds of millions of Win10 “Home” Microsoft “zombies” do the development and data gathering for Microsoft at your expense. Over a billion dollars is spent each year by Win10 “Home” PC owners to repair the damage caused by
If you are like most of us who read newspapers or watch television, you may ever so often hear about a comic book that sold for thousands of dollars. Maybe for even hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Yes, you heard right. A flimsy periodical selling for all that money? You bet. Possibly you asked your mom or dad about what happened to your comics. Most likely their answer was that they threw them away. Why would they throw them out? The simple reason is that they were taking up room, they were not being read, and that they were not worth anything. And they would be right most of the time. But there are always exceptions.
So if you’re comfortable being Microsoft’s “bitch”, go ahead and buy a “retail” PC with Win10 “Home.” If you don’t want to be Win10 “Collateral Damage” or a “Guinea Pig” just stay with Win 7 or make sure that your next PC will come with the Professional version of Windows. All of the Computer Factory’s “refurbs” do.
The record sale of an Action Comics No. 1 is $3.2 million. You got it. A comic that your parents could have bought in 1938 for a dime has sold for a few million dollars. Okay, how about a few other comics that are worth a king’s ransom?
Detective Comics No. 27 was distributed in May 1939. That comic was the first appearance of Batman. The highest sale price of Detective Comics No. 27 is $2.1 million. Not too shabby for a ten cent purchase.
Allow me to point out a few of the most valuable comic books of all time. If you had any of these you might want to stop reading.
Let’s start with the comic that comes to mind to most people when they think of the most valuable comics. I am referring to Action Comics No. 1, which came out in June 1938. It is valuable because it is the first appearance of Superman. Yes, the superhero that the two Cleveland high school pals, Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel, had sent to various magazines and newspapers, but were continually rejected. It is ironical that only the last ten pages of Action Comics No. 1 is devoted to Superman. But the editors of the new magazine Action Comics needed a cover and thought they would give it a try. There is no exact number as to how many copies still exist, but probably fewer than a
