THEY TOLD HIM TO BE QUIET - by Adria Manary Adams
When the government tells you to be quiet, alarm signals should go off in your brain. Only a chosen few know the full extent of its power, and my uncle, Elwin Laurence Peterson, regrettably found out the hard way.

During World War II, he worked at the Washington D.C. Navy Yard in the optics and machine shop. While there, he received several awards for his contributions to the war effort. One concern that he became acutely aware of, was the difficulty that all facets of the military were experiencing in communications. Methods of transmitting vital information to and from ships, submarines, airplanes and troops on the ground had become increasingly problematic since the Germans were intercepting and/or scrambling our signals. In exploring the situation, Elwin realized that varying the frequencies on which the messages were sent would disable the enemy from capturing our communications. Since frequency variation was a prominent component of a television system that he had conceived of in the late 1920's, and patented in 1928, he suggested that the government use this significant piece of his "Transmitting System and Apparatus," patent number 1,747,791.

ElwinPeterson.jpgHe absolutely believed that this method would provide clear, secured and unencumbered communication in military operations, thus saving many American soldiers.

After explaining how FM would benefit the Navy to the manager of his department, his
suggestion made its way up the ranks. In handwritten notes written by my uncle in 1945, he states:

"I was interviewed several times by various officers and engineers. At one of these interviews, a man who worked for Edwin Armstrong was in attendance. He had been called in because of his claim that Armstrong (now a Major in the Signal Corps), had been working on variations of wavelengths since 1931. At that point I informed the officers that I was well aware of his efforts, because I had demonstrated my version to Mr. Armstrong back in

Elwin Laurence Peterson

1929 and again in 1930, when Bell Telephone and the Postal Telegraph Company had requested his opinion of my invention."

What Mr. Peterson did not mention in this meeting was that after seeing these demonstrations, Edwin Armstrong later used what he saw to further his efforts in transmission technology, which eventually helped him to become who many refer to as the "Father of Radio". If Armstrong was to be given this title, then Elwin Peterson should have been credited for being the "Grandfather of Radio". (The Armstrong patent was filed in 1933. Peterson's patent was submitted in 1928, five years earlier, and finalized in 1930, three years before Mr. Armstrong's.)

This act of stealing began a sad string of betrayals by other associates, the government, major corporations, and worst of all, family members. And now another betrayal was unfolding as these meetings continued.

After the last interview at the Navy Yard, Mr. Peterson did not hear from anyone in the department for almost a year. Then one day he received a formal telegram demanding his presence at the Communications Office at the Navy Yard that very day."

The urgency of the telegram seemed quite odd to Elwin. Especially since he had inquired about how his invention might be used on many occasions. However, the urgency of the notification paled in comparison to what he would face once he got there.

As soon as he walked into the office, a man whom he had never met greeted him with a firm handshake, a formal greeting, and a gesture toward the chair in front of his desk. Elwin took the seat, noticing a piece of paper that looked like a contract with a pen alongside, conveniently placed before him.

The man began to explain that the Navy would be taking over his patent on frequency modulation until the war ended. Another man walked into the office to join the conversation, and quite obviously to be a witness to Elwin's expected signature. They both assured him that he would be given credit for the invention and the Navy's use of it, which Elwin had requested early on.

"They said they would be taking my patent out of the Patent Office and all papers about it would be kept secret. They also told me to be quiet. I was not to discuss anything about what was being agreed to."

Undoubtedly, there should have been an attorney present, although anyone would have recognized the pressure being placed on Elwin that afternoon. The officers continued to reassure him, encouraging him to sign the document.

Elwin was hesitating. After all, he wasn't in the Navy. He was a civilian working for the Navy Department and had filed this patent many years before he started working there. He wasn't in a position where he was obligated to take orders from any military officer. So, he wondered…was this a demand or a request?

The man behind the desk looked at his associate and then back to Elwin. He continued,

"Of course you will be paid for this significant contribution, Mr. Peterson. The government never takes anything without giving what it is worth, but the amount will be determined later."

The room fell silent.

A few more minutes passed until Mr. Peterson picked up the pen. Warily, he signed the contract, thinking that he was lending the rights to his patent, and eager to do whatever he could to save American lives.

The next day, his manager called him into his office to meet another navy officer who had been in the field during the past year. Elwin was surprised to hear that the improvements made through the use of the technology in his patent were already in use. In his notes, Elwin wrote,

"The officer went on to say that my method of communication was a complete success. The Germans were pushed all the way back before they found out about the new communication."

He was extremely pleased to hear this and proud that he could make such an important contribution to winning the war. However, the promises made were never kept. After the war he wrote many letters, asking when the rights to his patent would be returned to him, what amount he would be paid and how the navy planned on giving him the credit that he deserved.

Finally, the Navy responded in a letter from The Chief of the Bureau of Ordnance, Navy Department, confirming the contribution from Elwin L. Peterson to the Navy, in the field of Frequency Modulation.

There was never any payment from the government, but the rights to his patent were indeed returned in 1946. As more and more FM stations were given licenses post-war, Mr. Peterson hired a lawyer to sue these stations for infringement on his patent. Unfortunately, none of these stations were making money yet. Although FM broadcasting was surging by the end of 1941, it declined substantially after America entered the war at the end of that year. Even before Pearl Harbor, American manufacturers began experiencing extreme scarcities when trying to obtain certain raw materials and essential electronic components. After December 7th, all manufacturing of broadcast equipment for civilians ceased when President Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered the establishment of the War Production Board. Its purpose was to convert the factories of peacetime industries into manufacturing plants for weapons and military equipment.

In addition, the FCC instituted a freeze on new licenses because of these material shortages. Although the stations that already had permits were allowed to continue, materials that they needed were not available. Staffing shortages were another problem, as many experienced announcers, musicians and engineers headed off to war.

It took many years for the resurgence of FM broadcasting after the war. Not only would it take time to establish stations, the FCC announced a proposal to move the existing FM band of 42-50 MHz to a new band of 88-108 MHz. The move was to accommodate the newest technology that would soon take over the world of home entertainment…the television.

With other major changes proposed by the FCC, along with the fact that big corporations like RCA already ruled the airwaves, Elwin Peterson had very little chance of renewing his patent, which expired on February 18, 1947. The attorney who had been helping him for many years put it this way, "It would take an Act of Congress to get the U.S. Patent Office to extend this patent."

This was largely due to the fact that during World War I, the U.S. Navy had nationalized the American airwaves. When the war was over, the political elites of Washington wanted to make sure that no foreign entity could gain or regain control of America's long-distance wireless stations or their technologies. In an effort to make the Navy's radio system permanent, President Wilson and Navy Secretary Josephus Daniels backed a bill to make this happen. Although this bill did not pass in Congress, the Navy was not satisfied.

Two naval officers, were especially concerned about the radio stations owned by the Italian inventor and radio pioneer, Guglielmo Marconi. Thus, plans were put into motion to create an all-American company that would buy out the Marconi Wireless Telegraph Company of America. Yes, the U.S. government was heavily involved in creating a civilian business that would eventually become a monopoly that would prevent many entrepreneurs and inventors from entering the business of radio broadcasting. In October of 1919, Admiral H. G. Bullard and Commander S. C. Hooper, met with the president of General Electric, Owen D. Young, to propose that GE purchase American Marconi, and form its own radio communications subsidiary. Young agreed and within months, he transformed American Marconi into the Radio Corporation of America. David Sarnoff, an American citizen who was the commercial manager of the Marconi company, was chosen to be the manager of RCA.

This was the beginning of a fierce battle to control the airwaves, and Sarnoff proved to be the right man for the job. Over the next two decades, he would stop at nothing to gain and maintain RCA's complete dominance over the American broadcasting industry.

Sarnoff became President in 1930, launching an infamous reign as a corporate bully. His tremendous prowess as a promoter was equal only to his cutthroat methods of making sure that RCA reigned in the field of broadcasting. His next quest would be television. Nothing would stand in his way of winning the race toward becoming the first company to manufacture televisions in America. Although a hero to his stockholders, he became the ultimate enemy of many small inventors, going to great lengths to shut them down, steal their patents, or bring them under the umbrella of RCA.

The history of television is long and complicated, with brilliant minds around the world contributing to its ultimate success. It was the creation of commercial television that brought out the greed. That is when the "Peterson Principal" became a threat, which will be explained later in this article.

Sarnoff was among the earliest to see that television, like radio, had enormous potential as a medium for entertainment as well as communication. After researching the leading inventors of this new medium, he hired Vladimir Zworkin, a fellow Russian immigrant. Zworkin had been working on the development of electronic television for Westinghouse, but executives there did not believe it was feasible anytime in the near future. But after he proposed his concept to Sarnoff, he was hired immediately.

Having previously bought out the interests and patents of John Baird, another pioneer inventor in Scotland, and having Zworkin under his control, David Sarnoff thought his way was clear for RCA to control the industry.

But he soon had another problem. Unknown to him, Philo Farnsworth had already filed a patent for television. Through Sarnoff, Zworykin heard about Farnsworth and his work on television systems. After visiting Farnsworth's lab on the west coast, he returned home and immediately created copies of a piece of Farnsworth's demonstration that he thought would be the answer to the lack of success he was having with his own method. It was a video camera tube called the image dissector.

When Zworkin used this to finally make his television marketable, RCA was sued by Farnsworth. After many years of legal battles, RCA's might won out and left Farnsworth desolate.

Sarnoff was often referred to as a robber baron, a title that was more appropriate than a "visionary" as others called him. When Edwin Armstrong was working on FM radio, as previously mentioned, Sarnoff also struck a deal to push Armstrong out of the limelight. Armstrong worked for RCA for many years, bringing FM under the company's brand. Later, however, an argument ensued, lawsuits were filed, and Armstrong became another victim. After five years of legal battles and tremendous amounts of money spent on attorneys, he committed suicide in 1954. The resources that seemed limitless from RCA could never be matched by individual inventors.

Another casualty of the cutthroat journey to bring television to the public was Elwin Peterson. Long before the issues he had in gaining the recognition he deserved for the invention of FM, his primary focus was on his work on television.

The real truth behind the entire saga during the development of television was written in a pamphlet entitled, "The Newest Marvel of Science", which was first distributed at a meeting for potential investors in Ray-O-Vision. This was the company Elwin Peterson founded when he was ready to manufacture televisions in 1930.

"As is true of any great development, the milestones of its progress are engraved with the names of men. In bringing television to its present practical state, a number of men stand out. Baird of Scotland, Peterson, Jenkins, Farnsworth and Alexanderson of America, Karolus of Germany, Zworkin of Russia, Holwek and Dauvillier of France, and Mihaly of Austria."

Included in this list of tv pioneers should have been Kenjiro Takayanagi of Japan. He is said to have developed the world's first practical electronic television in 1926. However, his market was only Japan, so he was not considered a competitor for the all important American airwaves.

At the present time, all of the names above can be found when researching online or in books about the History of Television, with the exception of one…Elwin Laurence Peterson.

In 1922, at the age of sixteen, Elwin Peterson had mentally visualized his method of television, and spent the next six years bringing it into reality. He submitted a patent application for his Television Apparatus and System in 1928, which was approved in 1930. He had become well known for his work and was lauded in the press:

From the Washington Universal Service, July 14, 1928, an article states:

"A twenty-three-year-old California inventor, E. L. Peterson of Los Angeles, has obtained patent rights on a new and revolutionary television principle, it was revealed here today."

On July 15, 1929, The Washington Herald reported the following about Elwin Peterson's advancements in television:

"The invention embodies a wholly new and simplified principle. The problem of synchronization between the distributing and receiving points has been mastered for the first time since wireless moving pictures were attempted. All obstacles to synchronization which have retarded television in the past have been eliminated. The Peterson invention will make it possible to turn a dial and receive the picture with no more technical knowledge than for the operation of the radio."

A letter from the Secretary of State of California, Frank C. Jordan, dated September 24, 1931 says the following about his patent on the Television System and Apparatus:

"I was delighted to have an opportunity to view your Ray-O-Vision three-dimensional screen. It was my good fortune to have with me men high in the theatrical profession, and they were exceedingly interested and very much pleased. That you have accomplished what you set out to do, and which seemed to be impossible, is evident. It is one of the most interesting and valuable inventions of the year…."

In a Western Union wire from Mr. Peterson to his partner dated September 3, 1931, he stated,

"I have had a conference with representatives of the Radio Corporation (of America). They want to see a demonstration of my screen this month. But I do not think it is safe."

In another wire, he stated:

"I saw a swell demonstration by Farnsworth. They have nothing and we have everything."

Unsurprisingly, David Sarnoff had been actively recruiting Elwin to work for RCA during this period, but he refused all attempts. Confident that his method was the best, Elwin was ready to bring his television to market through his own company. Thus, he began to make plans for he and his new wife to move from Hollywood to New York. All of his equipment and even his wedding gifts were shipped to the building that his partners had leased on Long Island to begin manufacturing.

A newspaper article reported that Ray-O-Vision would soon be hiring. He was on top of the world!

After arriving in New York and checking into the hotel, he was anxious to see the new plant. Sadly, he was about to experience the greatest disappointment of his life, and the most shocking. Although he had not been able to reach his partners the previous week, he had been sent keys to the building. He assumed they would be at the new plant, working on the next steps to begin the operation. When he arrived there were no cars, which he thought was odd. Then he saw the chains on the doors and a sign. He could not believe his eyes as he walked up to the doors. "Building seized under court demand."

Not able to enter the building, he returned to Manhattan and began making calls. His nightmare was just beginning.

He was told that his partners, one of whom was his uncle, had oversold stock in the company and were being investigated for fraud. Eventually they were convicted and everything in the building was to be sold to reimburse those who had bought stock.

This is where the story unravels. Who would want to buy television equipment? Who would even know what to do with it? Why was there so much secrecy behind who had purchased the stock?

In my opinion, RCA could have been behind this siege to gain control of Ray-O-Vision's equipment and my uncle's patent, that was better than RCA's technology. His system enlarged and improved the television's image. It would also have made the television more accessible and affordable.

Was it a coincidence that he was in direct competition with RCA when the takeover of his company occurred? I think not.

It is my hope that the name Elwin Laurence Peterson will someday be included in the list of brilliant men who brought this -- world-changing invention to life.

110- Solid Rocket Motor Arrival Celebration
LOS ANGELES - (October 11, 2023) Some unusual cargo was hauled through the streets of Exposition Park on Wednesday, as a pair of large space-age Solid Rocket Motors were delivered to the California Science Center.
•••• Exactly eleven years after Space Shuttle Endeavour made its 12-mile journey across the streets of Los Angeles and Inglewood, the California Science Center invited the public to come out and watch the arrival of two large Solid Rocket Motors (SRMs), the next phase of Go for Stack--the complex, multi-phase process of moving and lifting each of the space shuttle components into place for Endeavour's upcoming awe-inspiring 20-story vertical display. The SRMs, donated by Northrop Grumman, are the final elements of the space shuttle system to arrive at the California Science Center.
•••• The move of the motors is also no small task. The rocket motors are each 116 feet long and more than 12 feet in diameter. And they both weigh 104,000 pounds.
•••• The SRMs comprise the largest part of the Solid Rocket Boosters (SRBs). During the space shuttle program, twin 15-story reusable SRBs would work with the space shuttle main engine to ignite and produce more than 6-million pounds of thrust--the majority of what was needed to lift a shuttle off the launch pad.
•••• The rocket motors are the major components of the twin Solid Rocket Boosters that were used to help propel the shuttles into space. All of the launch components, the shuttle, rocket boosters and a massive external fuel tank, will be included in the vertical display of Endeavour at its new home in the $400 million Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center. When completed, the display will be the only vertical, launch-ready configuration of a shuttle in the world.
•••• The SRMs was transported by freeway until the last leg of their journey to the California Science Center. After exiting the 110 freeway the morning of October 11th, the motors traveled northbound along Figueroa Street beginning at 7:30 a.m. from 43rd Place to Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard. At 8:00 a.m. the SRMs paused at Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard before a ceremonial "finish line" at 39th Street at 8:45 a.m. The public was invited to gather along Figueroa Street from 43rd Place to 39th Street to join the celebration and watch the momentous arrival until 9:00 a.m.
•••• The final component will be the delicate move of the shuttle itself across Exposition Park and the use of a crane to lift it into its vertical display, which will tower 200 feet into the air. The Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center that will house the display will then be constructed around it, with opening planned in 2025.
•••• Due to the moving and construction process, the space shuttle Endeavour will be removed from public display, meaning the last chance for people to see the shuttle in its current configuration will be Dec. 31.

Aft Skirt Installation Will Be First Milestone toward Lifting Space Shuttle
Endeavour into Vertical Launch Position for New
Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center

LOS ANGELES, July 6, 2023 --The California Science Center will commence Go for Stack, the complex process of moving and lifting each of the space shuttle components into place for Endeavour's upcoming, awe-inspiring 20-story vertical display in the future Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center, currently under construction. This technically challenging feat has never been done outside of a NASA facility. The installation of the two aft skirts, the base of the solid rocket boosters, will mark the first Go for Stack milestone and lay the foundation upon which the entire shuttle stack will be built. This is the first step in creating the world's only display of an authentic, 'ready-to-launch' space shuttle system; complete with the orbiter Endeavour, solid rocket boosters, and external tank.
•••• The roughly six-month Go for Stack process will start with the installation of the aft skirts, on top of which the solid rocket motors will be stacked to form the solid rocket boosters. This will be followed by the move and lift of the external tank, ET-94; then, Space Shuttle Endeavour's final move across Exposition Park and lift into place by a large crane; and finally, the intricate mating of the orbiter with the rest of the space shuttle stack. Once finished, Endeavour will be in a vertical configuration towering 200-feet tall. The Air and Space Center building will be completed around the full shuttle stack.
•••• After more than eleven years on display at the California Science Center, December 31, 2023 will be the last chance to see Endeavour on exhibit for several years until the Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center opens to the public. While Endeavour is off exhibit, the California Science Center remains one of the largest science centers in the nation, with
multiple hands-on exhibit galleries, special exhibitions, and IMAX movies for guests to experience. 
•••• "Endeavour will be the star attraction of the Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center, a launchpad for creativity and innovation that will inspire future generations of scientists, engineers and explorers," said Jeff Rudolph, President and CEO of the California Science Center. "We are grateful to be at this point in the construction of the new Air and Space Center, and thrilled to start Go for Stack on July 20 to commemorate Space Exploration Day."


•••• With an impressive artifact collection integrated with hands-on exhibits, the Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center will be a major expansion that will double the Science Center's educational exhibit space, adding 100,000 square feet and 100 new educational exhibits. Guests of all ages will be encouraged to investigate scientific and engineering principles of atmospheric flight and the exploration of the universe. The Air, Shuttle, and Space Galleries will provide a unique educational opportunity for our Los Angeles community and guests from around the world, general admission free. The Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center is the third phase of the California Science Center's three-phase, three-decade master plan to develop one of the world's leading science learning centers. Building construction is underway, and together with artifact and exhibit installation, is expected to take several years.
•••• The California Science Center Foundation is actively fundraising to complete this ambitious project with $320 million raised toward the $400 million EndeavourLA Campaign goal. Everyone can help realize this exciting vision and donations at any level are welcomed.

1892-1928: Stubblefield's Wireless

The Monument (insert picture)

The Legend:

        On the campus of Murray State College in Murray, Kentucky, there is a stone memorial which commemorates the day in 1902 that Nathan B. Stubblefield first publicly displayed a wireless means of transmitting voices between two points1 . Stubblefield's wireless telephone was first demonstrated in 1892, years before Guglielmo Marconi developed his wireless telegraph; but the demonstration on that day had been for just one man, one Rainey T. Wells.

        Stubblefield, a farmer and telephone repairman living in Calloway County, Kentucky, claimed he could send messages through the air without wires, a claim which attracted a huge crowd of spectators to the front of the Calloway County Courthouse in Murray on January 1, 1902. At points about two hundred feet apart on the lawn, Stubblefield and his son Bernard had set up two boxes that were not connected in any visible way. Each box was about two feet square and contained a telephone, through which Stubblefield and his son talked as if they were standing next to each other, their voices being perfectly audible to the crowds gathered around each box. It's said that his demonstration was greeted by hoots and snickers, causing the inventor to angrily gather up his equipment and leave.

        However, word of the demonstration reached the St. Louis Post Dispatch, which then wrote to Stubblefield to request another demonstration. Weeks later, the newspaper received a simple postcard: "Have accepted your invitation. Come to my place any time. Nathan Stubblefield." 

        The Post Dispatch reporter arrived at the farm in the second week of January, 1902. In the article written after the demonstration, the reporter described how he traveled about a mile from the inventor's farm and stabbed the rods attached to the wireless telephone into the ground, with the result that he could hear what Stubblefield's son Bernard spoke and played into the transmitter (he played his harmonica some).

        The Post Dispatch article won Stubblefield an invitation to demonstrate his invention in Washington, DC. At this demonstration one of his boxes was placed on a steamship, the Bartholdi, on the Potomac River, while a number of other boxes were positioned along the shore at sites of the users' choosing. Communication between the boxes, including the one on the ship, was fantastically clear. Stubblefield also demonstrated his wireless telephone in Philadelphia and New York that same year.

        Strangely, Stubblefield never marketed his invention, despite applying for patents in several different countries, and definitely getting the patent for his devices in Canada and the United States. After his stunning success in Washington, he packed up and went home, afraid, some said, of having his ideas stolen. Stubblefield dropped out of the public eye and his family left him; he spent the remainder of his life in seclusion in a shack in Calloway County. On March 30, 1928, he was found dead of starvation; the true mystery, his reasons for not promoting his amazing invention and claiming his rightful place in the history of broadcasting, passed away with him 2

        In 1930, the monument on the campus of Murray State College was erected in memory of Nathan B. Stubblefield, posthumously declaring him the "Inventor of Radio". Before he died, Stubblefield said of himself: "I've lived fifty years before my time".

        Thus ends the legend of Stubblefield's wireless telephone… but is the legend true?

The Rest of the Story

        The legend of Nathan B. Stubblefield, as presented above, is essentially correct; Stubblefield did indeed exist, he did demonstrate a wireless telephone that transmitted voices as early as 1902 (if not ten years earlier), he did receive Canadian and U.S. patents for a wireless telephone, and he did indeed go into seclusion only to eventually die of starvation in poverty. 

        What is not told of by the legend is that Stubblefield, in mid-1902, had agreed to a commercial use of his invention and was named the 'director' of the "Wireless Telephone Company of America," but held no office; he received stock in the new company in exchange for the patent rights to his device. His demonstration in Philadelphia was part of the promotion of the device, to help sell stock in the new company. Shortly after the Philadelphia demonstrations, however, Stubblefield withdrew from the company. While the exact reasons for this decision are unclear, there were several events that may have prompted the choice. 

        After the Philadelphia demonstrations, a fellow inventor and experimenter from that city joined the new company. His name was A. Frederick Collins, and he had separately developed a wireless telephone system that only had superficial differences from Stubblefield's system. Unlike Stubblefield, however, Collins was well-published in the scientific journals of the time, so his name carried more weight, promotion-wise; after Collins joined the company, Stubblefield and his device lost a great deal of his prominence in the company's advertisements. It has also been alleged by some that Collins was part of a group that conspired to steal Stubblefield's designs, but this allegation has not been proven. 

        Another strain between Stubblefield and the Wireless Telephone Company of America was revealed by a letter that Stubblefield wrote to the secretary of the company which clearly indicated that he felt he was somehow being swindled by them, and that all the company was actually interested in was selling stock. This seems likely, as the company never applied for the patents for either Stubblefield's or Collins' telephones, nor did the company make any actual improvements on the telephone systems; and in 1913 some of its officials, including Collins, were convicted of mail fraud. 

        It was after his break with the company that Stubblefield developed a second version of his system, different enough from the first that he could legally patent it in his own name, which he did in 1908. Neither the design promoted by the Wireless Telephone Company of America nor the design patented by Stubblefield himself were ever commercially successful, which is likely what finally drove the inventor into seclusion and poverty. 

        But why was a wireless telephone not commercially successful? The answer depends on one important question...

Exactly WHAT Did Stubblefield Invent?

        The claims for Stubblefield's accomplishments were summed up best by L.J. Horten in 1937 when he said: "...Nathan B. Stubblefield was the first to discover, invent, manufacture, and demonstrate equipment for broadcasting and receiving the human voice and music by wireless. He invented the radio". This represents the first error generally made in regards to Stubblefield and his devices: there are many ways to transmit information, of which radio is just one.

        The principles behind Stubblefield's devices were worked out in 1970 by Elliot Sivowitch based on an examination of the 1908 patents (U.S. Patent No. 887,357, dated May 12, 1908, Serial No. 366,544, dated April 5, 1907. Canadian Patent No. 114,737, dated October 20, 1908), and verified in 1971 by Thomas Hoffer based on a second examination of the patents, as well as an examination of the collections of papers and photos related to Stubblefield held at the University of Kentucky in Lexington and at the Chamber of Commerce in Murray, and a personal interview with Stubblefield's son Bernard, the only one of Stubblefield's children to have been allowed to work with and on his father's actual wireless telephones.

        Both of Stubblefield's designs -- the earlier one owned and promoted by the Wireless Telephone company, and the later one patented in 1908 by the inventor himself -- relied on the use of the principle of induction to transmit sound, the first design transmitting through the ground from metal rod to metal rod, and the second design transmitting through the air from antenna to antenna. Induction refers to the fact that a change in a magnetic field can create a current of electricity, and a current of electricity can create a change in a magnetic field; thus a current in one wire can produce a current in another wire, even at a distance; and this is indeed the same principle by which radio works.

        Previous to Stubblefield's telephones, other experimenters had theorized about the possibility of creating a wireless communication using the principle of induction. Samuel F.B. Morse, inventor of the telegraph and the "Morse Code", had conducted experiments along these lines as early as 1842; and after the introduction of the telephone and the mass laying out of underground telephone cables, it had been noticed that voices would sometimes cross over from one wire to another using the ground inbetween as the conductor. The earliest documented occurrence of this I have is in 1877, when a concert being "broadcast" to telephones in Saratoga Springs, New York, from New York City was also heard accidentally in both Providence and Boston because of electrical leakages between adjacent underground telephone wires.

       But induction transmission does differ from radio transmission. With induction transmissions, most of the energy of the transmission is confined to the vicinity of the transmitter wire; with radio transmissions, almost all of the energy of the transmission is actually transmitted. What this means in simple terms is that radio transmits much farther than induction... in Stubblefield's telephones, the design allowed for a maximum transmission range of only a little less than three miles, whereas even the earliest radio transmitters had a range of thousands of miles.

Other Transmissions

        Previous to the creation of Stubblefield's wireless telephones, induction transmission was already being demonstrated as a form of wireless communication by Professor Amos Dolbear of Tufts College, Massachusetts. As early as March 1882, Dolbear had a telephone set-up that used phones grounded by metal rods poked into the earth; his transmission range was a little less than a mile, and he received a patent for it. Ten years later in 1892, a man by the name of John Stone, funded by AT&T, made successful voice transmissions over telephones to ships at sea; he, too, was using a form of induction rather than radio broadcast to accomplish the feat.

        In 1895, Guglielmo Marconi had developed the first wireless system using radio as the transmission; this first system was just a Morse code telegraph, but by 1900 Reginald A. Fessenden, an American physicist, made the first recorded transmission of voices by radio. This was two years before Stubblefield's first public demonstration, which is the reason his supporters stress the fact he had shown his wireless telephone to a man named Wells in 18923. By the time Stubblefield patented the second design of his wireless system in 1908, it was two years after Fessenden had first broadcast phonograph music by radio in 1906.

        So, unfortunately for the legend of Nathan B. Stubblefield's wireless, he neither invented radio, nor made the first voice transmissions by wireless. However, it has been pointed out that Stubblefield's son, Bernard, may make claim to something almost as important in the history of broadcasting: all evidence supports the fact that Bernard was the first entertainer to play live music to a broadcast audience.

Text from the Stubblefield monument on the campus of the Murray State College in Murray, Kentucky, placed in 1930. It reads thus:

HERE IN 1902
1860 - 1928

Frank Edwards' book, Stranger Than Science, gives the date of the Murray demonstration as 1892 and the date of Stubblefield's death as 1929. These are likely incorrect for the simple reason that the dates given on the memorial mentioned above is 1902 for the Murray demonstration and 1928 for his death, and this agrees with my other sources. Perhaps Edwards or his source for the story confused the date of the Murray demonstration for the date of Stubblefield's 1892 demonstration to Rainey T. Wells. Edwards also sets the date of the demonstration for the Post Dispatch reporter as January 10, 1902.

        Let me also note that Edwards tries to add to the sense of mystery surrounding Stubblefield's device by stating that Stubblefield's patents don't make sense to those who examine them, and that the inventors' equipment and records were missing from the scene of his death (which he neglects to mention was caused by starvation), thus implying Stubblefield was killed by someone to get these items.

110- Lowpower WiFi Technology
FUZHOU, CHINA -- Rockchip, China's leading fabless semiconductor company and mobile SoC TroyCoryChinaLogo108w.jpgsolution provider, announced today that the new Rockchip RKi6000 world's lowest power Wi-Fi technology will be available for smart home applications, including smart plugs, intelligent access controls, smart cameras, home appliances, wearables, and more.
•••• The RKi6000 is the new ultra-low power Wi-Fi and memory technology that greatly reduces power consumption of IoT (Internet of Things) smart devices by 85%, allowing the use of AAA batteries for up to 35 years and the use of coin batteries in everyday appliances and devices. The new technology advances the widespread adoption of IoT by providing more efficient power, a lower price, smaller size, and the ability to use Wi-Fi for the development of IoT devices. 
••••Awarded numerous international technical patents for the new Wi-Fi technology, the Rockchip RKi6000 SoC (systems on chip) processor technology sets a new standard for Wi-Fi, with power consumption now equal to that of Bluetooth 4.0 LE (Low Energy), with receiving power consumption around 20mAh during use, 85% lower than standard Wi-Fi built with RF architecture.  
•••• When compared with the Bluetooth/ZIGBEE standard, Wi-Fi is more convenient to use with the easy Internet connection provided by the standard Wi-Fi infrastructure, but because of its high power requirements, Wi-Fi was previously unable to be incorporated into portable devices with an electrical current limit.
•••• The RKi6000's on-chip processor and memory technology resolves this power issue, reducing power consumption to make Wi-Fi equal to Bluetooth LE, advancing the adoption of IoT devices by breaking Wi-Fi's power consumption bottleneck.

110- Google releases translate App upgrade
•••The idea of a universal translator has been a longtime fixture in science fiction and a welcome tool for every language student.
•••• This app is an advanced mobile-translation tool, recognizing more than three dozen languages. But it's part of a much bigger trend and, with service like Microsoft's Skype translator, turning video chats into real-time multilingual conversations.
•••• With the new app, you are able to detect the languages being spoken so you don't even have to press the translation button on the phone each time you talk. It's now so much more natural.
Google Translate has had voice controls for a few years, but the latest version works more seamlessly.
••••In this version, the app is supposed to pick up who is talking based on the language being spoken. So, say you wanted to order a slice of chicken pizza in Italian. Using the app, you could walk into a pizza parlor, and, with your lips at an awkward proximity to the phone's microphone, make your request, after which a robotic voice would spit out the question in Italian.
••••Then let's say the guy behind the counter asks if you want extra cheese. He could ask you that question in Italian, and the phone would relay it in English. Respond "Yes" or "No" in English, and out comes Italian again.
•••••The second tool is a visual translator. People can place signs or other text in a phone's viewfinder, similar to the way they take a photo, then receive an instantaneous translation on the screen.
••••Google is one of a number of companies trying improve and to fulfill the promise of translation technology. Skype, Microsoft's video calling service, recently announced a new feature that simultaneously translates calls between English and Spanish speakers.
••••Google has been doing some form of translation since 2001. The Google Translate app now has 90 languages and some one billion daily users. Barak Turovsky, the product leader for Google Translate, said that 95 percent of the people who use Google's translation technology -- whether on a phone or desktop -- live outside the United States.
••••Technologically speaking, Google Translate works similar to Google's famous search engine. First it uses software to "crawl" the web in search of documents that have been translated between languages, then it performs a statistical analysis of likely translations.
••••For instance, if the computer sees that the French word chien has been translated to dog on millions of occasions and in varying contexts, it reasons that chien probably means dog, and in the process "learns" that word.
•••• The apps conversation feature can handle 38 languages and is now available for the first time on iOS. The number of languages is expected to grow.

110- Slim, a Major Prepaid Phone Service Player
Mexico's Carlos Slim of America Movil telecoms group, remained the richest person on Forbes' 2013 annual ranking of billionaires with a fortune of $73 billion.
•••• "To see Carlos Slim again broaden his lead and certify himself as the richest man in the world is a statement that wealth truly is global and not an American monopoly like it sometimes felt for many decades.

One of the biggest U.S. prepaid company, with just over 21 million customers, is TracFone Wireless Inc. The company is a subsidiary of Mexico's America Movil, owned by Mexican mega-billionaire Carlos Slim, who is leveraging his long experience in Latin America north of the border.
•••• Low-cost prepaid phone service has become one of the hottest performers in the U.S. wireless market. The move toward prepaid cellphone service in the United States is starting to mimic a pattern that has long been the rule in the developing world. Prepaid accounts for 95% of cellphone handsets in India, 80% in Latin America, 70% in China and 65% in Europe, according to Chetan Sharma, a Washington state wireless consultant.
•••• Growth is spurring a wave of international mergers. TracFone Wireless Inc. is acquiring Simple Mobile of Irvine, while Deutsche Telekom's T-Mobile plans to merge with MetroPCS. Japan's Softbank Corp. is buying a 70% stake in Sprint.
•••• Many companies have begun to offer upscale handsets using 4G networks which has helped prepaid shed its reputation for low-cost, hard-to-track phones favored by drug dealers on TV crime shows. So-called burner phones are hard to trace because their SIM cards -- memory chips that activate the handset -- can be store purchased for cash, and the new owner doesn't need to sign and be bogged down with lengthy contracts, phone charges they couldn't predict, or get a credit check.
•••• Prepaid has moved quickly into the smarter phones with more sophisticated users and is really challenging the market.
•••• The monthly cost of a prepaid phone plan can run as low as $20 every three months for bare-bones with 60 minutes of voice service, with a $10 handset offered by TracFone. Per-minute costs drop with added usage, and unused minutes can be banked for future local or long-distance calls.
•••• TracFone doesn't have its own network of cell towers and electronic spectrum. Instead, it buys excess capacity from the big four cell companies. "People can get the same phone networks for less than half the price," saidTracFone's chief executive and founder, F.J. Pollak.

Carlos Slim's TracFone under fire as it expands in state
The binational activist organization Two Countries, One Voice is calling for more California State regulation.
•••• TracFone Wireless Inc. a prepaid cellular company controlled by Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim is taking fire as it moves to expand in the lucrative California market. Regulators say TracFone should pay the state the same fees that other telecom firms do.
•••• The Miami company is being bashed publicly by activists on both sides of the U.S.-Mexican border because of what they call monopolistic business practices of its corporate parent, Mexico City-based America Movil. Slim, the company's chairman, is worth an estimated $73 billion and tops Forbes magazine's most recent 2013 list of the super wealthy.
•••• California regulators have been investigating TracFone for more than three years. In early 2012 the state Public Utilities Commission ruled that the company violated California law by refusing to send the state required service fees that it should have been collecting from customers.
•••• Officials at the Public Utilities Commission contend that TracFone could owe them as much as $20 million. The company is appealing the ruling to the state Court of Appeal.
•••• Los Angeles County lawmakers say they expect to introduce a bill that would give the state more authority to regulate prepaid cellphone companies such as TracFone and approve proposed mergers in the future.
•••• TracFone executive VP and general counsel Rick Salzman said, "Our whole program is to save people money," "We generally provide a comparable service to our competitors at a lower cost, and it's less burdensome on the customer as well, with no early termination fees, no contracts and no long-term commitments."
•••• He criticized the commission's ongoing efforts to make TracFone collect the so-called universal service fees that traditional wireless and land-line carriers bill customers and remit to the state to fund programs for the deaf and disabled, the poor and rural residents.
•••• Most phone companies add the fees, which are small percentages of the total bill, on monthly statements. But prepaid services "have no legal or practical way to collect the fees" since the minutes are bought at stores before the calls are made, Salzman said.
•••• In a lengthy legal proceeding the Public Utilities Commission rejected TracFone's arguments that it merely resells cellphone minutes purchased from other companies.
•••• "TracFone is ultimately responsible for payment of these user fees," the five commissioners unanimously decided.
•••• The amount of back fees that TracFone could ultimately pay will be decided in the second phase of the proceeding. in 2013.
•••• In the meantime, Salzman said, his firm is remitting the fees under protest.
•••• TracFone's attitude toward regulators underscores the need to bolster the Public Utilities Commission's authority to approve or reject a prepaid cellphone merger, especially when the company has been fighting efforts to require it to collect legally required state fees.

••• One of the reasons the phones might not be meeting the posted expectations, reported the LA Times -- "is that Apple's preproduction model tests were in situations that rarely, if ever, reflect the way real people use the iPhone."
••• Check out the page on battery performance tests on Apple's site. 
••• Here's how Apple reports it tested battery life for surfing the Web over 3G:
••• Internet over 3G tests were conducted over a 1900MHz 3G network using dedicated web and mail servers, browsing snapshot versions of 20 popular web pages, and receiving mail once an hour. All settings were default except: Call Forwarding was turned on; the Wi-Fi feature Ask to Join Networks and Auto-Brightness were turned off. Wi-Fi was enabled but not associated with a network.
••• David Sarno points out that "the S in 3GS may stand for many things on this device -- "sexy," "speed," "sweet" -- but it certainly doesn't stand for "stamina."
••• This, um, bonus "iDrain" feature of the battery, as David writes, is proving to be something of an Achilles' heel for the device. The company's suggestions on how to preserve battery life include, in essence, turning off the very features that make an iPhone an iPhone, including the faster 3G network itself.

••• Most folks who whip out their iPhones to check something on the Web don't typically go into settings to forward calls and shut off auto-brightness and the Ask to Join Network features. Nor do they typically have a consistent signal or dedicated Web and mail server.
••• The day the 3GS was released, iFixit.com dismantled the device and found that its battery offered only a minimal increase over its predecessor: 
••• Apple promises improved battery life with the 3GS. The battery is listed as 3.7V and 4.51 Whr. This comes out to 1219 mAh, compared to 1150 mAh on the 3G. That's only a 6% increase.
••• David goes into greater detail on why packing sufficient power in limited space for better battery life is such a dilemma.
••• Until that is resolved, I suppose most of us will just have to keep staking out the nearest outlets and pull up a piece of carpet to keep connected while traveling. • 110s - CLICK FOR MORE Wireless Cemeteries Towers Needed WiTEL 3GS DRAINS BATTERYS

• 110g - Intel, Nokia Teams Up. Advances the dreams of the WiTEL Organization. / June 24, 2009, Intel and Nokia team up to create a computer mobile device to enhance the NBS WiTEL marketplace.
•••As the original 1907 NBS Wireless Telephone®™© Organization join forces with the WTQCA to speed up the marriage of the Wireless Telephone®™© with Computers. Troy Cory, the CEO of the NBS WiTEL®™© Organization says he "has high hopes that his new partners will help re-define a new WiTEL mobile platform beyond today's so-called cellphone and laptop with USB plug-ins. • 110is - CLICK FOR MORE tviNews Intel, Nokia STORY
It is obvious that as the NBS Wireless Telephone®™© --
becomes ever more like computers, by the addition of a "Magic Jack" plugged into the USB port of a computer, the two HiTech giants in both communications and computing have come together to join in the advancement of the NBS WiTEL®™© evolution, to hasten the process of developing the effects and elements of the NBS WiTEL®™© first Service Marked over 100 years ago.
•••Intel Corp., the world's largest maker of computer chips, and Nokia Corp., which has a 40% share of the Wireless Telephone®™© handset market, say they will work together to create a new mobile computing platform to validate the reasons for owning a Wireless Telephone®™© assigned a WiTEL phone number for easy to use personal broadcasting," says Troy Cory, CEO of the NBS Wireless Telephone®™© Organization.
••• Dan Fost from San Francisco reported that the companies did not release many specifics about the deal, other than to say they hope to develop products "to define a new mobile platform beyond today's smart phones, notebooks and netbooks."
•••"Cellphones need powerful computers inside," Anand Chandrasekher, senior vice president and general manager of Intel's ultra mobility group, said Tuesday. "It's natural, therefore, that the leaders in computing and communications come together."
•••The move was hailed as a major step for Intel, which has struggled to cash in on the fast-growing demand for cellphones. "Everybody who sells chips is keen to get into the handset market," said Joseph Byrne, senior analyst with the Linley Group, a semiconductor research and analysis consultant in Mountain View. "More than a billion units ship every year, much more than PCs."
•••Although Intel and Nokia did not discuss specific products, analysts presume they have their sights on creating a gadget, as opposed to retooling phones now on the market.
•••"Whatever product we see come out of this partnership is probably not something we can see for one to two years," said Kevin Burden, practice director for mobile devices at ABI Research, an analyst firm in New York. "These are two companies with tremendous scale, tremendous research and development budgets, and they have the potential of building something new, something revolutionary down the road. We don't know what that is."
•••Burden predicts that a new category of machine, known as smart books or mobile Internet devices, may yet evolve. Nokia already tried its hand with its N810 Internet tablet, a 5-inch device announced in 2007, offering a small keyboard and constant cellular connectivity. Instead, Burden said, inexpensive laptops known as netbooks took off, and Nokia went back to the drawing board.
•••Similarly, Intel had stalled in earlier efforts aimed at expanding from personal computers into the fast-growing field of mobile devices. It sold its unit that made mobile chips for $600 million in 2006.
•••The time was not right earlier, executives for the two companies said in a conference call in mid-June 2009. "This is the time," said Kai Oistamo, Nokia executive vice president for devices. "The mobile and computing industries are coming together."
•••The Intel-Nokia alliance would compete with chip makers Broadcom Corp. of Irvine and Qualcomm Inc. of San Diego, which are setting their sights on selling chips for similar devices, Burden said.
•••Cory stated that, "what would make the deal really operational, would be an alliance with the WiTEL Quality Control Authority, (WTQCA) -- that would help control the WiTEL phone number assignment around the globe." It was in 1902, when the NBS WiTEL organization, and its founder, Nathan B. Stubblefield, "first set their sights on selling wireless telephone numbers to the users of the early-day NBS WiTEL devices, including those folks standy in the historical 1902 photos," -- said Cory. Those pictured with NBS are: Houston, co-founder of GE, Nikola Tesla, Collins, the leaders of Westinghouse and AT&T. • 110is - CLICgK FOR MORE tviNews Intel, Nokia STORY

Imgagecustomers/WitEL-Virgin-Sprint108w.jpg102s - Sprint BuysVirgin Mobile - Sprint Nextel to buy Virgin Mobile USA - Here's the $483-million Deal
••••• August 1, 2009 -- As Sprint Nextel Corp., the nation's third-largest wireless provider, made an offer to buy Virgin Moble, reported Troy Cory-Stubblefield, CEO of NBS WiTEL®™©.
••••• Virgin Mobile is the sixth-largest provider of prepaid cellphone services, with 5.2 million customers, and the second-largest "virtual network" provider -- meaning it uses another company's network to transmit its calls.
••••• British billionaire Richard Branson's Virgin Group owns 28.3% of Virgin Mobile. SK Telecom has a 15% stake that it received as part of the Helio deal.
••••• Sprint is the third-largest of the four major wireless carriers, which together control about 90% of the cellphone market. It trails AT&T Mobility and Verizon Wireless; T-Mobile USA is fourth.
••••• The Overland Park, Kan.-based company reported a loss of $384 million, or 13 cents per share, in the three months ended June 30. That's larger than its loss of $344 million, or 12 cents per share, a year ago.
••••• Sprint's revenue fell 10 percent to $8.14 billion from $9.06 billion a year ago.
••••• Analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters had expected a loss of 2 cents per share on lower revenue of $8.12 billion. Analysts typically exclude one-time items from their earnings estimates. The company didn't report an adjusted earnings figure that excludes one-time items.
••••• KANSAS CITY, Mo. The AP news agency reported on July 29th, 2009, that Sprint Nextel Corp. was buying Virgin Mobile USA Inc. for $483 million, further narrowing the range of consumer choices for prepaid cellphone service.
••••• Sprint said it would pay $5.50 for each Virgin Mobile share and assume up to $205 million in debt. Payment will be mostly in Sprint shares. The Overland Park, Kan., company already owns 13.1% of Virgin Mobile, which operates its cellphone service over Sprint's network.• 108is - CLICK FOR MORE VIRGIN Sir Branson STORY. • 108is - CLICK FOR MORE • 108s - Virgin Media NBS WiTEL Gallery STORY- • 108is - CLICK FOR MORE • 110s - SMART90 Virgin STORY-

• NBS New Book Series to be Published. March 16, 2009 /
••••• 81 years after Nathan B. Stubblefield's death, (NBS) -- March 28, 1928, several hundred chapters, and sections of unpublished NBS writings, photos, and drawings will be published by TVI Publication's, on various Ask Priscilla WebQuotes.
••••• The new book is all about Nathan B. Stubblefield, Murray, Kentucky, his family, his business associates,"Teléph-on-délgreen," and NBS WiTEL®™©, the short title for the Nathan's Wireless Telephone®™© Organization.
• "Teléph-on-délgreen," the college . . . .
••••• Nathan founded in 1907, is now the 10,000 student campus of Murray State University, located 50 miles from the Mississippi River, and 192 miles from the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln, 1809. Just 348 miles north, is Hannibal, the town where the Tom Sawyer, and Huckleberry Finn characters were created by Mark Twain, (b: 1835 d: 1920), when Nathan was just a boy. 200 miles west is Louisville, the city where Thomas Edison, (18471931) -- first became edicted into the world of elcctricy.
••••• • Affected by such literary works authored within what Nathan called . . .
••••• "the 400 mile radius of délgreen," it was an easy job for Nathan to put together his first original 10 volume NBS text book set, "Wireless Telephony," for the use by students at his NBS industrial college.

••••• Virgin Mobile shares were up 25% on Tuesday, jumping $1.07 to close at $5.28. The company went public in October 2007 at $15 a share. Sprint climbed 4 cents to close at $4.59.
••••• Virgin Mobile as the sixth-largest provider of prepaid cellphone services, with 5.2 million customers, it lags far behind industry leader Tracfone Wireless Inc., which has 12.5 million subscribers, and it has been locked in a price war this year while losing customers.
Prepaid Calling Plans
••••• Prepaid plans were pioneered largely by Virgin Mobile and other mobile virtual network operators, which used pay-as-you-go and inexpensive monthly plans as the hallmark of their competitive strategy.
••••• But such operators have had a particularly difficult time in the U.S. making a business by leasing wireless spectrum from the four major providers and then competing with them. Such labels as Disney, ESPN and Amp'd Mobile have fallen as the network owners ramped up their own prepaid efforts.
••••• The virtual network model has been more successful in Europe, where regulations encourage competition.
••••• "Virgin has been having difficulty getting traction in an increasingly competitive prepaid environment in recent quarters," Stifel Nicolaus analyst Christopher King wrote in a report Tuesday. | 102s - CLICK FOR MORE • 108s - Virgin Media NBS WiTEL Gallery STORY.
• Part of the problem has been its partner, Sprint,
--which unveiled a $50-a-month plan for its prepaid Boost service in January, undercutting Virgin Mobile's $80-a-month offering. King noted that Virgin Mobile launched a $49.99 monthly plan in April, but Tracfone recently unveiled a $45-a-month plan of its own.
••••• The number of prepaid cellphone providers has been shrinking as bigger players buy up smaller rivals. A year ago, for instance, Virgin Mobile bought Helio, a small Westwood joint venture between EarthLink Inc. and South Korean cellphone carrier SK Telecom.
••••• Helio brought to market an upscale device that brought the advanced features of South Korean cellphones to the U.S. market.
• Virgin Mobile felt compelled to sell because
its customer base was declining, the prepaid space is getting much more competitive, and it faced a $100-million debt maturity at the end of next year that "we do not believe it had enough free cash flow to pay off," analyst Walter Piecyk of Pali Research wrote in a report.
••••• Dan Schulman, chief executive of Virgin Mobile USA, is slated to run the combined companies' prepaid services operations.
• The deal is subject to regulatory approval
-- and the approval of Virgin Mobile's shareholders.
Sprint said the deal, which it expects to complete late this year or in early 2010, should enable it to make further inroads into the fast-growing market for prepaid cellphone service.
••••• "Prepaid is growing at an unprecedented rate with consumers keenly focused on value," Sprint Chief Executive Dan Hesse said. "Virgin Mobile is an iconic brand in the marketplace that will complement our Boost Mobile brand." | 102s - CLICK FOR MORE VIRGIN Sir Branson STORY. | 102s - CLICK FOR MORE • 102s - Virgin Media NBS WiTEL Gallery STORY- | 102s - CLICK FOR MORE • 110s - SMART90 Virgin STORY-

••• The Wall Street news hype of the late 90s and into 2008, showed Washington a thing or two about the "free enterprise system." Uncle Sam was able to claim an extra $5 trillion in GN revenue growth, as "real," by accepting certified reports in the same amount from Wall Street's IPO bankers and their CPAs, i.e. Arthur Anderson. Except for one question, "What did Uncle Sam do with the "freebie" $5 trillion it freely reported to the international community?"
