Photo Essay: Eastern State Penitentiary (Phila, PA)

The odd cemented doorway in the back originally led to the prisoner’s own private “exercise yard”, but that was abandoned as the population grew and the space was needed for more cells. 

Once we reached the center of the radial cell block design, I could take a picture through a doorway leading to a different, more dilapidated cell block hallway.

Then we visited the cells in Death Row, which was the last building added to the prison.  Though no one was executed at Eastern State Penitentiary, many prisoners that were on Death Row were housed there temporarily until they could be moved to the prison considered to be their final destination.

Eastern State Penitentiary in 1855 before an additional 4 structures were built within its walls.

A door in the northeast corner of the yard that leads to the northeast tower’s guard station.

Opening to a cell block hallway at the start of our tour.  This is an original cellblock dating to 1829.

As we moved to the outside of the prison, we were shown the incredible walls, which provide a half-mile perimeter for the prison.  At each corner there were guard stations that had been added in 1925 after an escape allowed four inmates a taste of freedom.  Of the four, only one was never heard from again (two of them got as far as Honolulu).  Only one other escape was staged, which included bank robber Willie Sutton.  In 1945 those twelve men attempted to dig under the outer wall, which is 30 feet high and continues 10 feet underground.   Of course, this attempt was thwarted and they were returned to the prison population.

When Eastern State Penitentiary was built, it was ground-breaking in many ways.  First, it loomed large and ominous atop a small hill just outside downtown Philadelphia.  Resembling a medieval castle, it served as a way to reform criminals as well as a way to deter crime.  Most of the city was populated by immigrants from Europe who understood through word-of-mouth what occurred in the dungeons of large castles.  They figured that if they committed a crime, they would be hauled away and tortured for years, possibly even to the death.

As we arrived for the tour at Eastern State we were given a glimpse into the lives of the early inmates.  Most inmates served their solitary sentence for only a year or two, at least in the beginning years, but that increased more and more as the crime and the level of violence in crimes escalated. 

Thanks for checking out my article!!!  You can sure that when special events happen at Eastern State Penitentiary, I will report on them for you (see the 2008 Season Events).

An inmate’s breakfast consisted of coffee, their lunch was a pound of meat with unlimited potatoes, and their dinner was cornmeal mush.  It’s been said that prisoners here actually ate better than most on the streets at that time in Philadelphia.  Since this prison was a “reformatory” they felt they needed to be properly nourished if they were to have any real chance at being reformed.  Prisoners also worked at a trade (if they didn’t have one when they entered the prison, they learned one while here), the goods from which were sold to help run the prison.  I asked the guide if there were many instances of suicide in a solitary situation where prisoners were given tools.  She answered that because the system was so controversial, many records weren’t worded in a way that would lead people to believe that suicides were occurring, but they believe that at least a handful died as the result of suicidal actions.

As we walked down the hallway in the cell block, we were encouraged to peek into the cells

and listen to accounts of how prisoners led their lives.

One of the main differences between this prison and others being built at the time was the large radial design of the prison that allowed for well-separated cell blocks complete with individual yards behind the cells themselves.  At the beginning of its existence, the prison stressed a completely solitary existence so that prisoners could reflect on their crime and gain a oneness with God.  They were fed through feeder doors and were allowed into their private yards for one hour a day.  When they needed to leave their cells, they wore hoods and were not allowed to communicate with the other prisoners.  They were only allowed to read the Bible and could have no visits or other communication from family members.  This system, of course, reduced the perils of other prisons such as disease, gambling, and violence.  It also provided anonimity as well as the impossibility of escape.  All prisons built in the 19th century were built in the likeness of either New York’s Auburn System or the Pennsylvanian System, embodied in the Eastern State Penitentiary.  In fact, more than 300 prisons in Europe, Russia, and Asia were based on its plan.

I know many of my Gather friends and commenters have made comments regarding the sad state of the prison.  This is indeed true and very sad.  The site is owned by a non-profit organization that does whatever it can to keep it maintained, but if you could see the size of this place, you would understand how that might be a losing battle.  Many roofs have been replaced to quell water damage and walkways have been repaired to allow for more tours.  As more funds come in, more things will be repaired, but its hard to say if it will ever be refurbished in time to salvage it in its entirety.  My hope is that in sharing this piece with you and in promoting visitation, you’ll consider visiting or sharing its existence with friends who might be interested.  As long as people continue to visit and contribute, the site will continue to garner monetary support from government and corporate entities.

Al Capone’s cell at Eastern State Penitentiary’s “Park Avenue” where he served only 10 months.

Finally, it was time to end the hour-long tour.  We had covered about a mile on our tour but I still felt like there was so much left to be seen!  I was glad we’d joined with a family membership ($50/year which includes a t-shirt, unlimited standard admission, 2 behind-the-scenes private tours, and free tickets for the family to go to Eastern State’s Halloween Haunted House – one of the scariest on the East Coast)! 

If you do want to visit, a one-hour tour is $12 for adults and $8 for children 7-12 April thru November; the museum downstairs is FREE.  There’s a $1 off Coupon located HERE and there are special guided tours scheduled that you can see HERE.  In case there’s no way you can visit, there are 360° views available online HERE at their website.

The last time I addressed you all with an article concerning this eerie sight, it was late December and we’d gotten there too late to go on a tour.  Before you go on, I highly recommend that you read that article FIRST here: Our Brief Jaunt to Eastern State Penitentiary.  That article will go more into the history and basic info about the prison while here I want to touch more on some of the interesting things I learned on our tour.

The ceiling is actually falling in overhead:

Then we got to go in and visit Al Capone’s cell, which was very interesting.  Al Capone was discovered in a movie theater in Philadelphia when he was arrested in 1929 for a gun charge.  He was sentenced to one year in prison and he spent most of that sentence in relative comfort at Eastern State Penitentiary.  Al feared for his life, believing that a rival mobster could still get into the prison and murder him so rather than being housed in general population he was given a cell in what was called “Park Avenue” by the inmates since the cells were larger.  He was even allowed to furnish his cell with rugs, antiques, oil paintings, and a radio.

If you’re interested just copy and paste the link below into your browser and check out what 5dimes has to offer.

For example at Wrestlemania XVII the Miz opened up as a 10-1 underdog and by the time the event came around it was even odds. Well I could’ve looked at that and said I have $100 to use to parlay John Cena once the odds became even to possibly make even more money. They offer the chance to pretty much gamble on anything you can think of and in a wide variety of ways. But in reality from a gambling standpoint it’s much better than doing so on a real sport. But if John Cena wins then you could’ve made a nice chunk of change if you played your parlays with patience. For example I could’ve put $10 on the Miz at 10-1 and if he won then that would mean $100 for me in return.

If you want to gamble on the WWE then you need to keep up with line movement and possibly get used to hedging bets. Of course if you do that and the Miz actually wins then you break even or lose just a little bit. Here recently I had a good deal of success betting on pro wrestling and specifically Wrestlemania XVII.

If I feel like being really risky then I will use odds like that to hedge. When I say line movement I’m talking about how the books will shift the odds as people put more money on either side.

I have a link at the end of this article to the site where I use called 5dimes. In this article we will talk about betting on professional wrestling and a site that offers this opportunity.

From the outset betting on professional wrestling namely the WWE doesn’t sound all that smart. But to a select few it’s a way to earn a nice part-time living in some form or fashion. I’ve done well with hedging my bets and using parlays when betting on professional wrestling. If you have a good deal of self-control and are smart with money and numbers it can certainly be to your advantage. That means that hypothetically you could’ve bet $10 on the Miz when the line came out and then $50 on John Cena right before the event and then been guaranteed to win at least $50.

Gambling is often seen as an addiction the same as drinking and smoking to many people. You can even bet on shows like American Idol and Dancing with the stars. That is just something that can be done when betting or gambling on professional wrestling. This can most certainly be true in many cases. The outcomes are mostly already predetermined prior to the shows and anybody willing to do some research and find the right sources can make themselves a good bit of money.

 

 

Real-Life ‘Ocean’s 11′: How Agents Foiled a $7 Million Casino Scheme

That way, players at the table who were watching and tracking the order the cards came out will know exactly how to bet when that deck, or slug, of cards comes back into play.

Truong, a former casino employee, was known as little more than an avid gambler and drifter in the local Vietnamese community. The false shuffle is an old sleight-of-hand trick in which a dealer appears to wash and shuffle a deck of cards. Based out of San Diego, the group stole more than $7 million from 19 casinos across the country using techniques even Hollywood hadn’t thought of.

They spread out, sending teams to recruit dealers and scam casinos up the West Coast, into Canada and down through the Midwest.

“She was researching it, definitely. In reality, the dealer actually protects a large portion of the cards and keeps them in the order in which they were dealt. That kind of money told the Tran Organization one thing.. They felt they knew exactly what they were doing, and they can never get caught,” Casey said.

Casino heists make for great movies, but in real life they usually end up considerably less glamorous.

Watch the full story here.

The crew stole $158,000 in the month of March 2003. Figuring out what [were] the best angles to hold her hands, reviewing the different protocols within her own casino,” Casey said.

After the dealer was fired from Sycuan, Truong took what the group learned and moved with his wife, Van Tran, and about 15 members of her family north to the Cache Creek Casino outside Sacramento, Calif.

It started simply enough. They were pulling out $20,000-a-round of cheating,” Casey said.

Take the botched attempt earlier this week when two thieves attempted to steal $155,000 from a dealer at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. Typically, it makes no difference when the cards are properly shuffled, but on a false shuffle the player has it all spelled out for them.

According to Casey, the lead agent on the case, the dealer was caught helping several people win a few hundred dollars at the table. After spraying the dealer with mace and grabbing the chips, one of the two alleged bandits was literally knocked out of his wig and sunglasses by casino security, quickly foiling the robbery.

“No one is the wiser if you don’t know what you’re looking for,” Pete Casey, special agent for the FBI in San Diego, told “20/20″ co-anchor Chris Cuomo.

There is an exception, however: a group known as the Tran Organization. But Truong was ready to go big time. What Casey didn’t realize at the time was that the dealer was doing more than just stealing, she was gathering intelligence.

“That means they were on it. The game suited their method because in mini-baccarat a player is allowed to write down what cards have been dealt. According to Casey, the woman was actually working for an unlikely criminal mastermind — Phuong “Pai Gow John” Truong.

“They had it set up like a business, where they had a day shift, night shift and graveyard. In 2002, a dealer at San Diego’s Sycuan Casino was caught performing what is known as a false shuffle. She was fired, and the situation was brought to the FBI’s attention and chalked up as an isolated incident. According to Casey, Truong devised a plan: recruit dealers from various casinos willing to learn how to conduct and perform a false shuffle during a card game, and to cash in after that.

With a handful of dealers willing to go in on it with them, Truong had teams rotating on mini-baccarat tables day and night at Cache Creek

Who’s more bankable for bookies than the Chicago Cubs? – Consumer News

This week he’s playing at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines where he’s won eight times.

MCILROY’S ODDS

Now 39, Woods entered this week having missed consecutive cuts for the first time as a professional. Matt James, a spokesman for the book, said he was priced shorter than his true odds in anticipation of overwhelming support.. If world No. “Even though he can’t hit it two feet anymore, for the time being anyway.”

(Bloomberg) — Tiger Woods has become a bookmaker’s best friend.

“Sure enough, within the first 12 hours we attracted enough action to make him a large loser in our book,” James said in an e-mail. Open, 17 months before he crashed his SUV during an argument with wife, an incident that led to his admission of extra-marital affairs, divorce and a stint in rehab.

The same will apply to Woods “for a long time,” he added.

Sherman said that if any other golfer was playing at Woods’s current level, he’d be 150-1 this week. He hasn’t won a major since the 2008 U.S. PGA Tour title since August 2013 and a career-worst round of 82 last week have turned a large profit for sports books.

BET DOWN

Action was so heavy on Woods — who won 11 major tournaments from 1999-2006 and held the world No. “So whether his odds increase or decrease based on his performance, there’s tons of Tiger money out there to be had.”

The most-supported golfer in both the number of bets laid and the total value of wagers, Woods’s failure to win a U.S. 1 Rory McIlroy was Woods, Sherman said, he’d be 5-2 to win the Masters Tournament in April, rather than the 9-2 odds the Northern Irishman currently has to capture the only major that has eluded him.

“People would bet the Cubs all the time, no matter what,” Vaccaro said. 1 ranking for more than 85 percent of those weeks — that sports books developed lucrative looking “Tiger vs. “We immediately cut his odds to 30-1. If he somehow ends up winning it will be a minor disaster.”

While the largest individual bets come when Woods has shorter odds, it will take another bottom five finish at Torrey Pines for Woods’s odds to move beyond 50-1 next time he plays, Sherman said.

Woods shot his worst round as a professional Jan. Bettors religiously wager on the Major League Baseball team’s title odds, even though the Cubs haven’t won a playoff game in 11 seasons and last won a World Series in 1908.

“That name just attracts the money,” Sherman said of Woods.

The SuperBook opened Woods’s title odds this week at 50-1, which was quickly bet down to 40-1. “They’ve been chasing that for over 100 years.”

Vaccaro and Sherman compared Woods to the Chicago Cubs. At the height of Woods’s dominance, he would sometimes tee off at 2-1.

“And if you do that, you’re still going to get some people saying ‘It’s Tiger Woods, let me throw something on him,’” Sherman said.

With odds that bookmakers say would be as much as three times longer if not for Woods’s name and prior success, public support shows no signs of fading, even as the 14-time major champion’s play has gone from bad to worse.

“He’s still a betting favorite no matter what odds are posted — whether it’s 50-1 or 2-1,” Jimmy Vaccaro, sports book manager at Las Vegas’ South Point Casino, said in a telephone interview. Sherman said Woods attracted five times more support than the next closest competitor.

“I wish there were five more of him out there,” said Jeff Sherman, assistant manager at Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.

“They grab onto these icons and they go down with the ship to some degree,” he said.

Before Woods joined the PGA Tour in 1996, the favorite at a major tournament would often have odds of about 12-1. 30 to miss the cut at the Phoenix Open by 13 strokes. the field” proposition bets to try and even out the money.

Betting on Sports � 6 Winning Rules by Don Stark

If you?re on medication, drugs, or alcohol, or if you?re just in an upset or disturbed mood, be smart and don?t play until you?re back to 100%.

Whether you?re a recreational player or actually doing it solely for a profit, may you always have more winners than losers, and always remember to have a lot of fun along the way, but stick to the rules.

Rule #5 ? Perform Due Diligence – As a bettor, you normally have the opportunity to do research well in advance of having to make that final decision on a wager. Over the course of a year, that ?, 1, or even 2 point difference will come into play many times, and trust me?it will add up to a lot of money.

People all over the world love to bet on sports. Unexplainably, wins and losses often times run in streaks, so slowly increase your bets on a hot streak and back off on cold streaks. That gives you an automatic advantage over the bookie, so use it to the fullest extent. If you set aside $1,000 for gambling, your individual bets should be in the $20 range and no more. After checking several well-established and solid options, decide on 2 or 3 of them, and then divide and deposit your initial bankroll equally amongst each one. Whichever group you fall into, sports wagering must be treated the same as any other financial investment. If you?re winning, the 2% per wager automatically increases as your bankroll increases. While some do it just for recreation or to make watching a TV game more exciting, there are others who will always wager on their favorite team or player, period. To be successful at anything, your mind needs to be 100% clear and functional. If you bet 3 teams straight action and only win 2 of the 3, you?ve just made money. Stick to straight action only. Conversely, if you?re on a losing streak and the bankroll goes down, the size of your bets will decrease accordingly. Research several sports books thoroughly and compare the numbers. For example, if you live in California and become an expert on the PAC 10, you can increase your chances of winning by focusing on just your niche.. If betting on sports is more than just a recreational pastime, or if you just don?t have the time or resources for Rule #5, seriously consider employing the services of a professional sports handicapper. However, there is an elite third group out there who bet sports with one and only one purpose in mind?to make money. Then, before making your wager(s), check each book and always take the best number on your particular event. Watching ESPN and/or reading opinionated articles by sports writers on the Internet is not the proper way to do your homework. Hook them all together in a parlay and you must win all 3, or you?re sunk. Rule #4 ? DO NOT Play Parlays or Teasers ? Parlays, teasers, and other exotic wagers are offered for a reason. If it were really possible for anyone to consistently pick 3 out of 3, parlays (and teasers) wouldn?t be offered by the sports books. Secondly, never wager more than 2% of your total bankroll on any single wager. One of the best ways to win at sports wagering is to maybe find your own special niche and then follow it closely. Yes, you can bet a 3-team parlay, and if you win, it normally pays in the vicinity of 6 to 1 in football and basketball. It?s a proposition for losers only, so don?t do it.

Rule #6 ? Seek a Professional – There is a wealth of valuable information available on the Internet but you have to take the time to do proper and thorough research. Drugs (legal or otherwise) and alcohol can cloud your judgment and will lead you into making decisions that you normally wouldn’t make. Most people just don’t have the time to properly study things like past statistics, line moves, trends, angles, valuable lines, inflated numbers, and much, much more. Since you?re reading this, you?re probably part of that majority. If you?re sick, you go see a doctor. The payoff odds and point spreads are not carved in stone throughout the industry, and on any given day, they can vary greatly between different shops. Never wager more than you can afford to lose, so be honest with yourself on what you can comfortably set aside for recreation or otherwise. To be done properly (and profitably), here are some very crucial rules one must follow.

Rule #1 ? Use Proper Money Management ? This rule is the one that is most neglected and explains why Vegas keeps on building all of those multi-billion dollar casinos. Always look for the best prices or the best numbers. If you?re serious about winning more bets than you lose, you should listen to a professional.

Rule #3 ? Spend Some Time Shopping ? This can be compared to shopping for a new car or even for groceries. Stick with 2% and never double up and chase lost money.

Rule #2 ? Never Gamble Under the Influence ? To coin a phrase, ?Speak when you?re drunk and you?ll probably make the biggest speech you?ll ever live to regret.? The same sensible theory applies to betting on sports

Moto X phone bets on sensors, hands-free commands

According to the Wall Street Journal, Google will launch a $500 million international marketing campaign for the device. It’s similar to Apple’s Siri voice-assistant feature or Google’s existing Google voice commands, except that you don’t need to press a button to activate it.

Smartphone consumers are still waiting for hardware improvements such as significantly longer battery life (not just “it can last all day!”), wireless charging or durable, droppable bodies.

Moto marketing

If these new features aren’t enough to make consumers flock to the Moto X, the pricy marketing blitz Google has planned might do the trick. Finally, a twist of the wrist will trigger the Moto X’s camera — another feature for people who hate applying pressure to buttons in order to turn things on.

To become must-have tools for consumers, these features must work extremely well lest they become more of an annoyance. “What’s going to be more important is the price and what the product is going to do.”

Smartphones are constantly one-upping each other with incremental improvements — higher-resolution screens, faster processors, pretty colors — but experts say real innovation is stagnating. For example, your boarding pass will be displayed when you’re at the airport.

But there was always the exciting potential for a smartphone partnership between the two tech giants. The company will likely emphasize that the Moto X will be assembled at a new smartphone manufacturing plant in Texas.

Here comes the Moto X. In the flip-phone days of the early- to mid-2000s, Motorola was a leading phone maker with such models as its popular Razr.

So will all these bells and whistles be enough to set the Moto X apart from other smartphones? So far, analysts aren’t convinced.

Great features, or just gimmicks?

Taken together, the leaks depict a phone that’s less about the hardware specifications and more about clever uses of sensors, customized features and hands-free voice commands.

It’s the first smartphone produced by Motorola Mobility under the company’s new Google overlords.

Story highlights

A recently leaked video shows some of the Moto X’s big features

The phone appears to have hands-free, voice-activated search and smart push-notifications

This is the first smartphone created entirely with Motorola’s new owner, Google

Motorola will need to wow consumers to get back in the game

The Motorola name had a lot of cachet a decade or two ago, but it’s not clear whether that’s enough to inspire brand loyalty from today’s users. It’s possible that Motorola could take over the manufacturing of the Nexus devices in the future.

ABC News has reported that customers will be able to customize their Moto X phone in advance by choosing colors for the back and trim, adding engraving and uploading a photo so that the wallpaper is already personalized when the device arrives.

The leaked features aren’t entirely new, either. If users like them, hands-free voice commands, active alerts and the camera shortcut could theoretically be rolled out in future updates to the Android mobile operating system. Dennis Woodside, CEO of Motorola Mobility, said recently that sensors in the phone will anticipate users’ needs — for example, letting it know when it’s being pulled out of someone’s pocket. If you haven’t heard about it already, you will.

Motorola’s news followed similar announcements by Chinese computer maker Lenovo, which is building a manufacturing plant in North Carolina, and Apple, which has said it will begin manufacturing a Mac computer in the U.S. Google makes the Android mobile operating system, Motorola Mobility makes handsets. You can activate the voice controls by saying “OK Google” out loud, then ask for directions or give it other commands. Many consumers may have forgotten about them. Either way, we’ll find out soon.

A new marketing video from Canadian carrier Rogers was leaked to the Internet last week — it’s since been taken down by YouTube — and showed some of the phone’s unique features. The active updates seem like an expansion of the Google Now predictive search tool. Then they would work on other phones that also have the right sensors, stealing the Moto X’s thunder.

Google released its flagship Nexus 4 smartphone earlier this year, which is manufactured by South Korean company LG. Currently available on Android and iOS, it combines location and time information with data pulled from your search history, Gmail account, and calendar to show information that’s relevant right then and there. It claims to be the first smartphone made in the United States.. One of the few radically different features to hit the market of late is the 41-megapixel camera inside Nokia’s Lumia 1020 smartphone.

And it comes buoyed by a wave of hype, a fat marketing budget, and no shortage of new leaks threatening to out the device before its official debut as early as next month. The deal was done primarily to flesh out Google’s patent portfolio with Motorola’s 17,000 patents.

“I don’t really think that there’s anything I’ve seen so far that will really get the consumer crazy,” said Carolina Milanesi, an analyst at Gartner. this year.

Google completed its purchase of the Chicago-based Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion in 2012. Tech bloggers even took note last week when a leaked photo showed Google Chairman Eric Schmidt chatting on what appeared to be a white Moto X.

As for hands-free voice controls, Google previewed this feature at its Google I/O developer conference in May, comparing it to the voice-activated computer on Star Trek.

Active updates will push notifications to the phone based on your needs, location or time. “A lot of the things you see are more gimmicks.”

“It seems to be a trend but at the end of the day, consumers don’t care as much (about where a phone is made),” said Milanesi
