 November 2013. Story about Tesla No101: Dear all my friends and fans (Drugovi i drugarice),

Story about Tesla No 101: Today my landlord sent two electricians (nice English guys) to upgrade electricity wiring in my flat. They noticed some electrical work and upgrade, wiring, lighting etc I did myself and said; oh no you can’t do that yourself it must be done by a qualified electrician etc. I pointed out to a large photo I have on the wall and said: this Guy gives me right to do whatever I want with the electricity. They asked who’s that, and I said Tesla! They never knew!? So after a bit of arguing they said OK. So my good electrical work is on and two more people know who Tesla is.

And once again as ever, turn off all your electricity in your home, or work place, for just 10 minutes and by sitting in dark imagine your life without it. Then turn it back on and thank this brilliant Man who gave it to you.

January 2013. BBC snubs Nikola Tesla

The programme featured the “enormous contribution made by a handful of brilliant minds who unlocked the key to power itself” – starring the greats Watts, Faraday and Edison. Yet as Branco Stoysin wrote to tell us, there was not a single mention of American Serbian scientist and engineer Nikola Tesla.
