Doomsday Cults – Jim Jones and the People’s Temple

The mass suicide in Jonestown, Guyana on November 18th 1978 was the largest civilian loss of American lives, apart from those lost in natural disasters, of modern times, that is until 9/11. Known correctly as the stown massacre, in all, nine hundred and eighteen people died in this tragic event, in the settlement itself, in the capital Georgetown and also at a nearby airstrip.

Jim Jones, leader of the cult, founded the People’s Temple in Indiana in the mid 1950’s. Unlike many cults, it had a political rather than a religious aspect, and was dedicated to the establishment of extreme socialism. And unlike many cult leaders, Jim Jones was to some extent an establishment figure, associating with high ranking members of the US government and at one time being appointed Chairman of the San Francisco Housing Commission.

During the 1970’s Jones moved his headquarters from Indiana to San Francisco. Indiana had not welcomed his integrationist views, and California had a more liberal climate in which Jones could operate.

Jim Jones views and methods were under examination and attack in the US, so he sought a more congenial place to establish his People’s Temple Agricultural Project, or Jonestown as it became known. Jones settled upon the country of Guyana, which was very amenable to his socialist views and appeared to provide a safe haven.

He and his followers began to build a community in the jungle. The small country was overwhelmed by the mass immigration of five hundred followers, and it is undoubtedly the case that there was rampant bribery by Jones to allow him to import the arms and drugs which he required. Jonestown was run along pure communist lines, and required communal living and complete equality. The model was of North Korea, the Soviet Union and Cuba, with intense restriction on personal freedom, including the inability of residents to leave.

Jim Jones was clearly a charismatic personality, as he seems to have been able to pull the wool over the eyes of many people, including the government of Guyana. By the late 1970’s, with investigative journalists hot on his trail, Jones himself moved to Jonestown, along with more migrants, and the population rose to close on a thousand. The land was very poor, and sustainability wasn’t possible. When Jones arrived, the overcrowding created pressure on the community, and this was coupled with a harsh new regime, based on the Korean model of eight hours work, eight hours study. (For study, read brainwashing.) Jones broadcast his incoherent thoughts around the compound night and day, making it difficult even to sleep.

Jonestown was hot, overcrowded, and married couples were forced to live apart. Food was meager, and work was the norm. Punishments close to torture for men, women and children were meted out to those who didn’t toe the Jones’ line. Many people became sick with dysentery and similar illnesses due to the poor hygiene of the settlement.

Eventually, people began to want to leave, and their plight was brought to the attention of Congressman Leo Ryan of Northern California, who eventually visited Jonestown and tried to take some people back to the US with him. Jones, by this time sick, abusing drugs and behaving with more than usual paranoia, ordered them to be killed. This killing took place at a local airstrip.

Fearing that the wrath of the US would be called down upon his organization, Jim Jones decided that the only escape was mass suicide. He convinced his followers that they would otherwise be subjected to torture, and a better place awaited them. A cocktail of cyanide, grape juice and Valium was prepared in vats, and people came forward to take the deadly mixture. Mothers gave the poison to their babies, then drank it themselves. Nine hundred and nine people committed suicide that day, including Jones, who shot himself � a much easier death that cyanide poisoning. Other cult members living in the capital Georgetown were instructed to kill themselves, and did so. A few people escaped, and lived to tell the tale.

The People’s Temple seems to have been less a Doomsday cult than a political experiment gone wrong. The Jonestown massacre was instigated by fear of reprisals more than by hope for a better world beyond the grave. Although Jones styled himself Reverend, there is little real evidence of religious belief or practices in the cult. Cult is certainly was, with strong elements of brainwashing and leader worship. There is no doubt that Jones was deluded at best, and wicked at worst.

The Best Of The Direct-to-video Horror Films

Any true horror film fan knows that the best movies out there are not that easy to find. Of course the big name blockbuster horror franchises are played in theatres nationwide, but where do you find those lesser known gems that arent in wide release? Some major video retailers carry decent slasher, gore, grindhouse, and B horror films. However, lesser known movies still are out there. For these you must go straight to the source, the studio that creates them.

Full Moon Features is one such studio known for its head B-movie veteran Charles Band, whos been making movies since the 70s. Full Moon Features is also known for such low budget cult classic series such as Puppet Master and Subspecies. Later on Full Moon Features had other straight to DVD releases often referred to as so-bad-theyre-good movies like Gingerdeadman, The Killer Eye, and Evil Bong. All are famous among a specific audience of die-hard fans of gore, blood, guts, & violence in films.

No on the 10th installment of Puppet Master: Puppet Master Forever, Full Moon Features popularity among fans has not ceased one bit. With DVDs, BluRays, Box Sets, Toy Collectibles, etc. The Puppet Master series is one of the most successful franchises for the studio. The Puppet Master Box Set containing the first seven Puppet Master movies plus an extra bonus disc with over 40 Full Moon Trailers for example, has been a hit seller among collectors.

Another cult classic series adored by fans since the early 90s, is Subspecies. An Epic Collection of the films was released in 2007, which included all the original segments which were released in VHS. The story follows three college students as they study folklore in Romania – which leads them to bump into Radu Vladislas – the sadistic vampire who has returned to his home and killed his father. Radu takes a liking to one of the students and over the next three films tries to convince her to join him on the dark side and become a vampire. The series is known for its dark portrayal of the monster vampire Radu, as well as the stop-motion animation throughout. It even leads to a spin off called Vampire Journals. If you havent seen this series and are a fan of more original vampire sagas, do yourself a favor and check out the Subspecies Blu Ray at your local video store. After watching, youll probably want to own every movie in the series, in which case there is a Subspecies Box Set available as well.

Portrait Photography Using A Compact Camera

Today’s compact cameras are capable of producing professional looking photographs that often rival those taken with much more expensive equipment when used properly.

The success of a good portrait photo is ultimately judged by the subject who wants to be portrayed in the best possible light and in a way that they see themselves. Taking a professional approach to this will pay dividends and help you to achieve the best possible results.

Preparation is the key to a successful portrait shot. Take the time to organise the surroundings in a way that will complement the sitter. It may not be feasible to set up a studio scenario for the shot but it is fairly simple to ensure that the background does not spoil the shot or draw your attention away from the main subject.

Another mistake people make is to restrict themselves to a head and shoulders shot, with no explanation to what they are doing. This is fine if you want to apply for a photo ID card but rarely works outside of a studio, set up with effective lighting. You will achieve a more natural effect if you allow your subject to engage in some sort of activity which is included in the shot. This will also help to relax the sitter and the end result will look far better than a forced pose. Natural is best. Your subject does not have to look directly into the camera and say ‘Cheese.’ You will achieve a much better shot if the sitter is looking in another direction or over your shoulder. Try it and see for yourself which you prefer.

Once your subject is relaxed take a few shots from several angles to create different effects. You can create vastly different shots by shooting from above or below the subject. Focus on the subject and reduce the depth of field to concentrate on the subject and fade the background out. Select the portrait mode if you are uncomfortable changing settings on your camera.

One of the most important factors in portrait photography is lighting. Wherever possible, natural light sources will provide the best results but nature often needs a helping hand. If you do not have access to professional lighting equipment it is possible to experiment with ready to hand equipment which can be cheaply adapted to deflect the light just by using cardbord etc. The built-in flash on a compact camera can sometimes give harsh results and should be avoided if possible.

Before involving the sitter it is best to take a few shots of the background to see if anything looks out of place. You won’t want to make too many adjustments to the surroundings once your subject is ready, especially if it is a child you are photographing, who will become easily distracted or bored. With a good size memory card you will be able to take as many shots as you like and discard any that you are not happy with. The best part of a digital camera is being able to see your results immediately and make any adjustments there and then.

Navigation Instruments You Should Have Aboard

Mariners and other boat navigators today have quite the opportunity to be able to use the marine GPS (global positioning system). With such device, they can detect any foreign targets at sea. But mariners should not solely rely on marine charts. Just in case something goes wrong with the chartplotters, the boat will be in danger to land targets that are not seen by the naked eye from afar. So it’s better to have separate navigation software on board. Navigation software helps in providing ease and safety during travel. These devices are also easily held and read from the start, with the exemption of the marine weather fax.
A compass first and foremost, is needed for determining boat heading. A compass system with compass transducer is ideal for marine navigation. With an equipment like this, you can incorporate lock bearing when auto-piloting to keep the vessel on course. The compass’ digital and analogue display will then show any deviation from locked bearing and the direction to steer to achieve the desired heading. The same equipment may also be fixed to the boat so that it won’t fall off or go missing. You may also purchase packed system that shows not just the boat’s heading but also depth. Another instrument that is need for marine navigation is the analogue rudder angle display. This shows the rudder position as indicated by a pointer. The rudder angle is the determinable space between a ruder and another part of the boat, that affects the overall steering. The recent rudder angle display instruments offer increased expanded indications.
Your navigation software must also consist of vessel speed and wind speed display tools. There is a complete system pack with one Graphic display, DPU (data processing unit), Speed and Depth Pods. Such instrument can also be incorporated with remote control, autopilot tool, and Man Overboard. You can also integrate via the transducer, the wind speed display. Knowing how fast the boat or the wind is, helps in the navigation and pre-cautionary measures. With regards to weather condition, you will also need a maritime weather fax. Such navigational instruments scan and print out real weather charts and satellite images. It provides clear images quietly and fully automatic operation may be provided through a programmable scheduler timer, allowing you to determine the weather the way weather administrators do.
