The Biographies of John Charles Fremont: The very first Republican candidate for President

John Charles Fremont in 1856 became the very first Republican candidate for President. He was also an adventurer, explorer, military officer, businessman, and U.S. Senator.

He became the military governor of northern California by right of military conquest, not election. He was one of the first two U.S. Senators selected by the new state of California to represent the state in Washington. Fremont was a businessperson. His $10M California gold country holdings were worth the equivalent of perhaps a half billion dollars today, making Fremont, one of the wealthiest candidates for president in U.S. history.

Fremont’s colorful life and career made him vulnerable to allegations of scandal -his campaign was dogged by claims of illegitimate birth, secret Catholicism, and even cannibalism. Some of these claims were true. And Fremont was hindered by his principled and steadfast opposition to the further spread of slavery – the issue that in four short years would propel the nation into a bloody Civil War.

His distinguished career of exploration helped open the West to settlement and popularized the region to countless emigrants who used his reports as their guidebooks: Mormon settlers in Utah, California’s Forty-Niners, and emigrants to Oregon. His unorthodox campaign to conquer California ultimately succeeded, but left him court-martialed and disgraced.

The Biographies of John Charles Fremont surveys the career of this amazing character and tells how the story of his life was captured by journalists, historians, and biographers.

If you are seeking an alternative to reading mysteries or fiction. Fremont’s real life reads far better than any fiction novel.

The Monsterjunkies: An American Family Odyssey

This beautiful graphic novel is the adaptation of the original novel “The Monsterjunkies”, written by YA authors Erik Daniel Shein and Theresa A. Gates. The adaptation was made by Jay Fotos Studios, and the result is absolutely amazing. Recently, “The Monsterjunkies: An American Family Odyssey” has received a Readers’ Favorite award in the gold category, and has been positively reviewed by Kirkus Reviews.

The Monsterjunkies are a family of cryptozoologists. They live in an impressive mansion in Foggy Point, Maine, which they use as a sanctuary for rare and endangered species. The two Monsterjunkie children, Crow and Indigo, go to school in town but find it very difficult to fit in. All the other teenagers think they are freaks and treat them very badly. While Indigo has a way of making herself liked by the others, Crow often feels alone and unwanted. He prefers to lock himself in his room, where he works on his monster figures, or spend time with the creatures around the mansion, who are his friends.

Eventually, Crow and Indigo manage to make some friends, but just as they think their lives are getting better, the lead bully in their school, Ruth, decides to torment them. If Ruth’s favorite activity is to upset Crow and Indigo, Ruth’s father favorite hobby is to ruin their parents, Talon and Pandora Monsterjunkie. The man is rich and powerful enough to run the Monsterjunkies out of town. What will the family do? Will they give up, or choose to stand up for themselves? They don’t even want to think about what would happen to the kind monsters around their mansion if Ruth and his father succeed.

“The Monsterjunkies: An American Family Odyssey” is a brilliant graphic novel that manages to send some very important messages: bullying is wrong, and when it happens teenagers have to find the power to stand up for themselves. Being different is not bad and shouldn’t be something to be ashamed of. Yes, it is very important to all of us to feel that we fit in society and that we are accepted, but that doesn’t mean we have to change everything about ourselves to achieve that.

This adaptation by Jay Fotos Studios is faithful to the original story, and the art is absolutely beautiful. The characters are well-drawn, and the colors are used in such a way to make the mysterious monsters stand out and jump from the panels. Even though it is a story with and about teenagers, “The Monsterjunkies” will be enjoyed by readers of all ages.

Portable, solar-powered ecocapsules mean you can live rent- and electric-bill free, globally

If you’ve just had it with taking the subway, or sitting in an office, or just generally being around other people, you may be in luck. Slovakian firm Nice Architects has built an egg-shaped “Ecocapsule” that runs entirely on solar and wind energy, allowing its dweller(s) to live both literally, and figuratively, off the grid.

 

The completely self-sustaining portable home contains a 9,744 watt-hour battery, a 750 watt wind turbine, and high-efficiency solar cells that can support you for about a year in pretty much any location in the world, provided there is some sunlight. (It probably wouldn’t work in a cave, for instance, should someone desire to live in one.)

The capsule also includes a rainwater collection and filtration system. Inside, there’s a kitchenette with running water, a flushable toilet, a shower, a bed, and work space. Nice Architects says the capsule, which is about 4.5 meters (14.7 feet) long and 2.4 meters (7.9 feet) wide, can comfortably fit two people.

The egg-home can be “easily transported” by trailer, according to the company, and can even charge the electric car that’s towing it.

 But beyond just nomadic living, the Ecocapsule has plenty of other potential applications, from providing shelter in disaster areas to doubling as scientific research stations.
 Nice Architects will unveil its prototype at the Pioneers festival in Vienna on May 28 before taking pre-orders at the end of 2015 for shipping in the first half of 2016. The company says the price will be released later this year, though there’s already a steep shipping cost. Sending the capsule from Slovakia to New York, for instance, will cost you €2,200 ($2,383) alone, and the capsule itself is likely to run to tens of thousands of dollars.
