    500,000 volts kiddies will do this sometimes. Do not try this at home.

    Now you are filthy rich! At least better off. How about we send you oil samples to run through the mass spec?

    Wow! What is the background on this?

    Wow! What is the story with this? Those switches are not designed to be opened under load obviously. I think I remember those devices being used as isolators for the actual circuit breaker after they have been tripped - I guess they did this on purpose for show or perhaps the ciccuit breaker was not working. That is quite a 60 cycle hum from that arc!Tether

    Re: Wow! What is the background on this?

    Stuff on the net. The circuit breakers I do not believe can be tripped manually so they use these to isolate the circuit. The reason for the arc is that the air ionizes and sustains the arc. Sometimes for a longer period of time, like this show.

    urban anthro project

    I'm sort of new to anthropology. I'm taking this class on urban anthro, and in it I have to do a 10 hour project and research paper on a problem/challenge/aspect of urbanism, urbanity, or urbanization. Basically I have to come up with problem/challenge/aspect of urbanity, urbanization, or urbanism; write a paper on it; and get involved... in any way in the thing that I write about. Get it? I really hope you do, because I was wondering if anyone could help me brainstorm some ideas... I would be really really greateful for your help!!!

    IBEW members, My Local has a problem and I was hoping to reach out to others who may have experienced the same.

    The President of my Local has charged my Business Manager. The charges are supposed misappropiation of funds.

    The intent of the Business Manager has been to improve the lot of our Hall. He has not profited from his actions nor caused harm to the IBEW.

    So the question arises, "What is the intent of the President?

    Sad state of affairs and I was just wondering if anybody has ever witnessed such treasoness action before?

    Rumor has it, the President had divulged this sick plan during the election campaign of our Local to a member that would admit this and take a polygraph if doubted.

    Does a Business Manager get removed by the International if he erred in procedure but his actions were nobel and the outcome benefitted the Local?

    Does a President get removed by the International if he fails to bring attention to the Business Manager any possible errors in procedure that he is aware of. Should he not explain his intent of why he is pressing charges when he could have cooperated with and not work in conflict with the Business Manager? (Constitution violation!)

    What about the witness to the Presidents' verbal premeditated plan! Would he have an opportunity to voice this to the International?

    My apologies IBEW members. This situation has nothing to with your Local. The IBEW minuteman is down and I needed to reach out for support. We are trying to improve our Hall but there are obviously others who do not respect the wishes of the membership who voted overwhelmingly for our present Business Manager.

    If you have any ideas please share.

    Solidarity!

    Re: Internal Strife

    Ours just went through somewhat of the same thing. Funds were allegedly misappropriated and the GMC Yukons they were driving were a sore spot in the membership. Our leadership was divided on the election until the new BA was elected then the "old gang" sucked up to the new. The new BA was overwhelmingly elected by a large turnout.
    All is well in 595 now though the company I worked for since 99 (turned out in 00) went from 100+ to <30 had to let me see the world.

    More info on that video (and more) here....

    Very fascinating videos and information... I've always had a lot of respect for linemen, but holy smokes!

    BTW, I shared this URL with a friend in the bay area (electrician with Rosendin or Cupertino)... he got a major kick out of it. He's not had the opportunity to play with voltages of this magnitude... didn't sound like he had much interest either ;^D
