J.K. Rowling’s New Book Has A Release Date!! It’s been five long years since J.K. Rowling published “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”, the final book for the Harry Potter series. But J.K Rowling is far from retiring her passion with writing novels. Earlier this year Rowling had announced she would be writing another book. Her latest book would be “very different to the Harry Potter series”, though she “enjoyed writing it every bit as much.
In any profession, everyone has to start somewhere and writers are no different. Every published author out there was once an unpublished author. Fourteen publishers, including big names such as Penguin and HarperCollins, rejected J K Rowling’s manuscript for the first novel in the Harry Potter series. http://simon-rose.com/books/the-childrens-writers-guide/
J.K. Rowling is the first person who lost her billionaire status because of giving huge sum of money in donations. She wasn't always a billionaire. Once she was a single parent!

Science Stuff: Quotes from Albert Einstein
By Caleb Pirtle III. Alexander Pope could take pomposity to levels that had never been reached before and have seldom been reached since. His essays were little more than a matted morass of verbosity, which is about as pompous as I can get. When we were struggling through his tantalizing little couplets in high school, I had an English teacher who told us that reading Alexander Pope was like being a prospector. “You have to dig through acres and acres of mud to find a single nugget,” she said.

Great Teachers: Annie Sullivan was the first teacher to successfully educate a deaf and mute child...Helen Keller!

Annie Mansfield Sullivan Macy
Anne Sullivan, the teacher and lifelong companion of Helen Keller, was born on this day in 1866. As a young child, she was stricken with an eye infection that left her blind. After being educated at a school for the blind, she accepted a position as Keller's teacher where she quickly earned a reputation as "The Miracle Worker" for her special ability to get through to Keller. The pair quickly became role models for physically disabled people around the world.
Johanna "Anne" Mansfield Sullivan Macy (1866 – 1936), also known as Annie Sullivan, was an American teacher best known as the instructor and companion of Helen Keller. Sullivan was born on April 14, 1866 in Feeding Hills, Massachusetts. Her parents' names were Thomas Sullivan and Alice Cloesy Sullivan and they were Irish immigrants who couldn't read and had little money. In 1874 her mother, Alice, died, probably of tuberculosis; after which Anne was sent to an almshouse, that today is Tewksbury Hospital in Tewksbury, Massachusetts. She was at Tewksbury for four years. In 1880, Anne, who was blind from untreated trachoma, was sent to the Perkins School for the Blind. Michael Anaganos, director of the Institute, then located in South Boston, was approached to suggest a teacher for the Keller's deafblind daughter. He asked Anne Sullivan, a former student, herself visually impaired and only 20 years old, to become Helen's instructor. It was the beginning of a 49-year relationship, Sullivan evolving into governess and then eventual companion. Anne Sullivan arrived at Keller's house in March 1887, and immediately began to teach Helen to communicate by spelling words into her hand, beginning with "d-o-l-l" for the doll that she had brought Keller as a present. Keller was frustrated, at first, because she did not understand that every object had a word uniquely identifying it. In fact, when Sullivan was trying to teach Keller the word for "mug", Keller became so frustrated she broke the doll. Keller's big breakthrough in communication came the next month, when she realized that the motions her teacher was making on the palm of her hand, while running cool water over her other hand, symbolized the idea of "water"; she then nearly exhausted Sullivan demanding the names of all the other familiar objects in her world. In the 1920 census, Helen Keller was 38 years old and listed as head of her household in the Queens, New York Census. Anne is listed as living with her, age 52, listed as a private teacher of Helen. In 1932 they were each awarded honorary fellowships from the Educational Institute of Scotland. They also were awarded honorary degrees from Temple University. By 1935, Sullivan became completely blind just one year before her death on October 20, 1936 in Forest Hills, New York. She died at age 70 after a coma, with Keller holding her hand. When Keller herself died in 1968, her ashes were placed in the Washington National Cathedral next to Anne's. As lifelong companions Sullivan and Keller continually lived, worked, and traveled together.

Socrates.. Socrates was born in 470 BC, in Athens, Greece. We know of his life through the writings of his students, including Plato and Xenophon. His "Socratic method," laid the groundwork for Western systems of logic and philosophy. When the political climate of Greece turned, Socrates was sentenced to death by hemlock poisoning in 399 BC. He accepted this judgment rather than fleeing.
