The easiest way to identify Eddie Van Halen’s guitars is to associate them with the corresponding Van Halen Album.Eddie is not only famous for his unique talents, experimental techniques, or his rehab career, but for the unmistakable way he makes his guitars.

Eddie has been modifying and sometimes destroying guitars from the very beginning of his career.
His guitars are as famous as his music. Not only did Eddie define an era of rock music, he also defined an era of rock guitars.

You can’t listen to Eruption without seeing him play that Black & White striped guitar. Read more >> http://www.celebrityrockstarguitars.com/rock/vanhalen.htm

Copyright is a form of intellectual property protection for a variety of literary and artistic endeavours. Everyone who has used the internet has at one time or another copied material illegally. This is due to the popular misconception, that once material is posted to the internet it can be freely copied: this not the case. Unless the author of the material has stated that is available for public use, then permission has to be obtained from the author for the material to be used.
File sharing sites, is another issue that concerning copyright laws. These sites/programs allow people to share material over the internet, this allows for copyrighted material to be shared and copied form one person to another. Some people believe this is okay as there is no transaction of money for the material: this is not true. File sharing is one of the biggest problems concerning copyright laws on the internet as there is no way to monitor all the information being shared between people and block and copyrighted material from being sent.
Now days because it is so easy to share copyrighted material over the internet and it is so frequently done many people do not see it as a crime that affects the authors finically. Although many people would not steal a cd from a store, download free music from the internet is socially acceptable on the internet.
The reason why people copy and break copyright laws is because they don’t want to pay for it. What most people don’t think about while there waiting happily as their download finishes, is that they are part of a mass group that is stealing from the author. This author has probably spent many hours of work developing a program hoping that in the end he can share with all of us and maybe get paid, to earn a living so he can continue provide us with software we want and need. But all those people who pirate software and wish for everything on the internet to be free or cheaper, are really just saying , we value what you have created but could you just do it for free? Would you do your job for free? Or cheaper? Highly unlikely, but that being said people that claim authors aren’t protecting their material enough, well all that can be said about that is, if people really want something enough, they’ll do anything, even if it might cost them jail time or a $50,000 fine.

Fort Mims Massacre (1813)
At the start of the Creek Civil War, settlers north of Mobile, Alabama, sought refuge at Fort Mims. Approximately 550 settlers, including 175 armed militiamen, were at the fort when it was attacked by a force of Creek Indians belonging to the Red Sticks faction under the command of Peter McQueen and William Weatherford, known as Red Eagle. The massacre marked the transition from civil war among the Creeks to war between Americans and Red Stick warriors. How many settlers were killed or captured? Discuss

Last Titanic lunch menu, saved by survivor, going to auction

This undated photo provided by Lion Heart Autographs shows a letter by one of the survivors of the sinking of the Titanic written six months after the disaster, which could fetch $4,000 to $6,000. The letter - saved by a fellow passenger who climbed aboard the so-called “Money Boat” before the ocean liner went down - will be sold by Lion Heart Autographs, along with two other previously unknown artifacts from Lifeboat 1 on Sept. 30, 2015. The auction marks the 30th anniversary of the wreckage’s discovery at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. (Lion Heart Autographs via AP)NEW YORK (AP) — The Titanic's last lunch menu — saved by a passenger who climbed aboard the so-called "Money Boat" before the ocean liner went down — is going to auction, where it's estimated it will bring $50,000 to $70,000.
