It’s Sunday, and that means it’s time for a new issue of the Balkan Voice in Chicago. This weekend, our Culture Editor Milos Rastovic has uncovered a hidden gem from the Nikola Tesla archives, revealing a moment that showcases just how visionary the Serbian-American genius truly was.
Picture this: It’s 1908, and the glamorous elite of New York City are gathered at an extravagant dinner. Among the distinguished guests is none other than Nikola Tesla himself, the mastermind behind countless technological breakthroughs. As the champagne flows and the atmosphere crackles with anticipation, Tesla takes the stage to deliver an electrifying announcement. With a glint in his eye and a confident smile, he proclaims that the future of wireless phones is fast approaching.
In an era when telegrams and landline phones were the epitome of modern communication, Tesla dared to envision a world where phones would be untethered from cords and cables. Little did the guests know just how advanced and ahead of his time this brilliant inventor truly was.
Meanwhile, back in the windy city of Chicago, the Mayor has been quite the busy this week. Addressing two crucial developments, he’s been tackling the pressing issues surrounding asylum seekers and paid leave for public school teachers.
So, dear readers, as the sun sets on another eventful week, let’s dive into the pages of the Balkan Voice.
