In the incontrovertible decades of the nineteenth century, three brilliant and visionary titans of America?s Gilded Age?Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, and George Westinghouse?battled bitterly as each vied to conceive a vast and powerful electrical empire. InEmpires of Light, historian Jill Jonnes portrays this extraordinary trio and their riveting and fierce world of cutting-edge science, invention, intrigue, money, death, and hard-eyed Wall Street millionaires. At the fundamentals of the story are Thomas Alva Edison, the nation?s most famous and folksy inventor, creator of the incandescent light bulb and mastermind of the happy?s first direct current electrical light networks; the Serbian wizard of invention Nikola Tesla, elegant, highly eccentric, a fantasizer who revolutionized the generation and delivery of electricity; and the charismatic George Westinghouse, Pittsburgh inventor and tough corporate entrepreneur, an industrial idealist who in the era of gaslight imagined a incredible powered by cheap and plentiful electricity and worked heart and soul to create it. Edison struggled to introduce his radical new rule current (DC) technology into the hurly-burly of New York City as Tesla and Westinghouse challenged his dominance with their alternating current (AC), thus home the stage for one of the eeriest feuds in American corporate history, the War of the Electric Currents. The battlegrounds: Wall Street, the 1893 Chicago Magic?s Fair, Niagara Falls, and, finally, the death chamber?Jonnes takes us on the tense walk down a prison hallway and into the sunlit compartment where William Kemmler, convicted ax murderer, became the first man to die in the electric chair. Empires of Light is the gripping history of electricity, the? perplexing fluid,? and how the fateful collision of Edison, Tesla, and Westinghouse left the world utterly transformed.

Traces the history of artificial lighting and the invention of the light bulb.
When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he probably knew it would change the world. What he probably didn't know is that his creation would also become the trendiest new way to serve a drink. Now bars and cafes from Seoul to New York City are serving drinks in actual light bulbs. All signs point to Southeast Asia as the place to first have the bright idea to transform a light bulb into a drinking vessel. Mark Lee, a co-owner of the popular dessert bar Spot in New York City, says his chef first saw the novelty on a trip. "Our chef travels all over the world and kept seeing the cups on the streets of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Korea," said Lee. The Hyundai Department Store in Seoul, Korea is one of the first places to popularize its light-bulb soda stand. Customers line up there to purchase a variety of tea-based sodas served in bulbs (because how else do you get people to line up for tea-based sodas. Around the same time, photos from a cafe in Taiwan went viral showing its, um, busty servers holding light bulbs filled with bubble tea. And soon after, the cups began to show up in the US. . It may look like the cups are just light bulbs with the filament scraped out, but there's a bit more to them than that. Jamie Boudreau, the owner of the renowned Seattle cocktail bar Canon, buys his bulb-shaped glass flower vases off of the internet. Spot gets its plastic light bulb-shaped cups -- which it fills with a Thai iced tea bubble tea -- custom-made in Taiwan. Elsewhere, like at ROKC, a cocktail bar in Upper Manhattan, you can find a rounded version of the cup sitting in a bed of ice to keep it from rolling around. For one to get any sort of liquid into the drink, you have to use a funnel, Lee explains. Boudreau uses crushed ice in the light-bulb cup cocktail he serves at Canon, which he says was a challenge to get into the vessel. The boba pearls in bubble tea, another popular beverage served in a light-bulb cup, have to be dropped in a couple at a time, Lee reveals. And the light bulbs also must be served with a straw, or it's nearly impossible to get the liquid out of the cup. Boudreau says that the aptly named Bright Idea cocktail (made with tequila, watermelon, and pomegranate) is one of the most popular drinks on the menu. So much so that people try to steal the cups all the time -- a pretty dim idea.
