A brief paper about the completion of Storm King Dam in Stanthorpe in 1953, and the dire situation the town was in during the drought with only 33% of the normal rainfall. With the implementation of “drastic” water restrictions came a large group of people in the town known as the “Bucket Brigade” who allegedly came down to the standpipe at night to steal water. What an interesting comparison to 2018 where Mayor Dobie revived the “Bucket Brigade”. Was Mayor Dobie an astute, brilliant leader by researching the historically significant events or was it revived out of ignorance? What are the legal consequences?
I had an eminent Rabbi of America contact me because of my research into the Bassano and Nasi-Benvenisti families regarding their involvement with the Zohar, and their connections with the Knights Templar during the Crusades. He asked me if I could assist him by researching: the Knights Templar, the Holy Grail legend, the Benveniste family connections to the Knights Templar, how the Jews ultimately financed the Crusades, forcibly or otherwise, the Templar’s visit to Rabbi Solomon Bar Isaac of Troyes (1040-1105) (Rashi), and his incredible prophecy upon Godfrey of Bouillon that might have won and lost them the Temple of Jerusalem. If only they knew the curse upon the ancient scrolls they stole from the Temple of Jerusalem, then maybe Christendom would still hold the Temple Mount to this very day. This includes a YouTube teaching session.
which by definition is a “member of the group of Muslim people from North Africa who ruled Spain from 711 to 1492”. This viral post, amongst other things, caused a young Hollywood scriptwriter by the name of Katrina Langford to contact me regarding proving whether or not Emilia was a Blackamoor. Throughout this paper, I proved that the Bassano family were not Blackamoors, but were tanned Italian-Spanish Jews in 16th century London where Jews were called “black” devils, and evil people because of their lack of understanding, where the printing press was a new invention and bibles were previously only in the hands of clergy.
There are Church notes by the Bassano family to confirm Richard Bassano visited the St Oswald’s Church in Derbyshire in 1710 to set up the new organ with Thomas Cook, both of Staffordshire. In true family tradition, after the service had concluded, Richard Bassano played “a grave sonata” in an “elaborate Italian manner” before a church full of people, that brought revival. The story is a very interesting one.
During my 14 years research on the ‘Early Plays’, I have found crucial ancillary documents that many scholars have simply overlooked, or dare I say, had a vested interest in concealing. These documents clearly date many of the works some decades prior to previous scholars. In my major academic work of Genesis of the Shakespearean Works, I prove previous relative methodologies were simply flawed, and wrong conclusions have been adopted as fact. I have re-dated many of the Shakespearean plays, and de-masked the original dramatists who existed long before Shakespeare appeared on the streets of London.
I compared the leather on the Sefer ha-Refu’ot and discovered it is strikingly similar to that of the Bodleian First Folio. It was bound with a dark brown chocolate fine calfskin leather with uniform grain laid grain side out, just as was done with the First Folio. The diagonal hatching blind-tooled on the edge of the spine of the Sefer ha-Refu’ot tend to suggest the ‘W.W.’ may be William Wildgoose because both books contain blind-tooled inboard bindings of brown calfskin over pulp boards with the same endleaf craftsmanship. The condition of the leather on the Sefer ha-Refu’ot is considerably better than the First Folio. They both have similar damage to the leather cover that is consistent with the age…
In the First Folio, there is a dedication to William Shakespeare by Ben Jonson. Within Jonson’s dedication, we find he attempted to defend Shakespeare against claims that a woman wrote the Shakespearean works. In examining the text, we must understand Ben Jonson was a good friend of Shakespeare, and happened to be with Shakespeare when he died of ‘feverous intoxication’ in April of 1616, some seven years before the First Folio was published. I investigate the early evidence of a female author.
