Inventions of the 19th century │ First telephone ...
Innovation does not occur in a vacuum. Lots of people have worked on lots of projects and come close to innovation, but have not succeeded. Innovators build on the work of others, and a great example of this is Alexander Graham Bell. Bell is credited with the invention of the telephone, but many people were working on a phone at that time. A decade prior to Bell’s phone, inventors were having success transmitting some sound by wire. Some were very close to success. Bell borrowed from other

On Feb 22, 1980, the U.S. Hockey team defeated the 4-time gold medal winning team from the USSR in one of the biggest upsets of sports history at the XIII Winter Olympics! #upset #miracleonice #olympics

1980 Miracle on Ice. The 1980 Soviet Hockey machine was virtually unbeatable, but Herb Brooks and his team of amateur and collegiate players defeated them 4-3 in Lake Placid. Brook's pregame speech, "You were born to be a player. You were meant to be here. This moment is yours." set the tone for the upset, but Al Michael’s famous call “Five seconds left in the game. Do you believe in miracles?! YES!", immoralized the moment as the greatest in sports history.
The Stanley Cup or an Olympic Gold Medal?
I was only 10, but I still remember this!
Lake Placid Olympics (1980) - The underdog Team USA Hockey, little more than amateur hockey players, confronts the decades dominant professional team of the Soviet Union, dramatically defeating them in a spectacular game. This game came to be known as "The Miracle on Ice". Team USA went on from the win over the Soviets to defeat Finland for the Gold Medal. The Soviet Union took the Silver Medal against Sweden.

28. African American Leader in the Civil Rights Movement - Rosa Parks - was an African-American civil rights activist, whom the U.S. Congress called "the first lady of civil rights" and "the mother of the freedom movement".
Rosa Parks, known as “the mother of the freedom movement,” was arrested in 1955 when she refused to relinquish her bus seat to a white passenger. Her act sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott, one of the most successful campaigns against racial segregation. | www.nwhm.org | National Women's History Museum | #NWHM #WomensHistory #BHM #BlackHistoryMonth #AfricanAmericanWomen #RosaParks
History Dec 1, 1955- Rosa Parks sets off a bus boycott in Montgomery, Alabama when she refuses to give up her seat in the “colored” section of a bus to make room for a white passenger. Led by Martin Luther King, Jr., the boycott lasted for over a year and resulted in the desegregation of the buses. This is often thought of as the event that started the Civil Rights Movement.

Vice President Joe Biden, the best man to stand with Mr. President Barack Obama, God Bless you both.
Joseph Robinette "Joe" Biden, Jr. (pronunciation: /ˈdʒoʊsɨf rɒbɨˈnɛt ˈbaɪdən/; born November 20, 1942) is the 47th and current Vice President of the United States, serving under President Barack Obama. A Democrat, he was a United States Senator from Delaware from January 3, 1973 until his resignation on January 15, 2009, following his election to the Vice Presidency. Biden was born in Scranton, Pennsylvania and lived there for ten years before moving to Delaware. He became an attorney in 1969, and was elected to a county council in 1970. Biden was first elected to the Senate in 1972 and became the sixth-youngest senator in U.S. history. He was re-elected to the Senate six times, was the fourth most senior senator at the time of his resignation, and is the 15th-longest serving Senator in history. Biden was a long-time member and former chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee. His strong advocacy helped bring about U.S. military assistance and intervention during the Bosnian War. He opposed the Gulf War in 1991. He voted in favor of the Iraq War Resolution in 2002, but later proposed resolutions to alter U.S. strategy there. He has also served as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, dealing with issues related to drug policy, crime prevention, and civil liberties, and led creation of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act and Violence Against Women Act. He chaired the Judiciary Committee during the contentious U.S. Supreme Court nominations of Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas.

Ham the chimp going to the space shuttle!
On the morning of January 31, 1961, in south Florida, a 5-year-old chimpanzee — dubbed “Ham” by his handlers — ate a breakfast of baby cereal, condensed milk, vitamins and half an egg. Then the unassuming 37-pound primate went out and made aeronautic history: Aboard a NASA space capsule, traveling thousands of miles an hour almost 160 miles above the Earth, he became the first chimp in space.

Zachary Taylor - 12th President of The United States. 1849 - 1850
WORST PRESIDENTS: Zachary Taylor (1849-1850) A political novice, the war hero is entirely forgettable as president. Zachary Taylor was more a forgettable president than a failed one. And the reason is simple: The 12th president was probably the least politically attuned man to occupy the White House in American history, ignorant, one might say, to the point of innocence. Born in Virginia and raised in Kentucky, he was a country boy and a fearless soldier who fought and commanded in . . . . .
