Inventing the Telephone
  • A Brief History
  • Although Bell was just learning electricity, he was already an expert on sound and speech. Born and raised in Edinburgh, Scotland, Bell was the son of Alexander Melville Bell, a professor of elocution who had devised a technique called visible speech, a set of symbols that represented speech sounds. The elder Bell used the technique to teach the deaf to speak. Alexander Graham Bell had little interest in being a businessman. In July 1877, he married Mabel Hubbard, and set sail for what proved a long honeymoon in England. He left the growing business to Hubbard and Sanders, and went on to a long productive career as a scientist and inventor.

24. Inventing Barbie
They invented a life for her that was as glamorous and American as Lilli s had been tawdry and foreign (41); hence the creation of the French designs.
Inventing Barbie
"New for '59, the BARBIE doll: A shapely teenage fashion Model! Retail price $3.00..." Barbie appeared at a time when the term "teenager" was a "new and rather sexy one"(Wolff 24). The country had been through two world wars and a depression, and the fifties presented a time for young adults to come into the limelight. But it was questionable whether or not the American public was ready for a doll with a woman's figure. At her debut she received mixed reviews. Some condemned Barbie and her black- and-white swimsuit for being too "scary, sleazy, and spellbinding"( ; the facial paint on the earliest dolls was very heavy, and her almond-shaped, sharp, sideglances that were not suitable to join the cute, baby-faced Ginny dolls or appropriate alongside the fragile, refined Madame Alexander doll market. Others, however, saw her as "sunshine, Tomorrowland, the future made plastic"(Lord 43) with a fresh face and fashions to fit every girl's daydreams. Over the next few years, these healthy fantasies would prove to be increasingly attractive to parents. Her earliest fashions adhered to the philosophy "the doll sells the clothes and the clothes sell the doll"(West 26). When Ruth first met with Charlotte Johnson, the designer who would create Barbie's ensembles for the next twenty years, she explicitly wanted a "bridal gown, tennis dress, ballerina outfit, and something for a football game"(Westenhouser 12), but those were only the basics. Along with these appeared sleepwear for slumber parties, which were favorites of young girls, as well as homemaking and hygiene-influenced designs. These provided the "pleasant and cheerful experience" of "Barbie-Q" to which Charlotte soon added the "elegance and style" of "Gay Parisienne"(Billy Boy 25)

Here is the press release: Isilon® Systems the leader (don't you love that- "leader") in clustered storage, today announced preliminary results for the third quarter of 2007 ended September 30, 2007. Based on preliminary estimates, total revenue is expected to be in the range of $23.2 million to $23.7 million, down approximately 6 percent to 8 percent sequentially ..... the company stated it expected total revenue in the range of $25 million to $27.5 million for the third quarter. Company blamed one of its largest customer EK (17% of revenues last quarter went to 0% this quarter-ZILCH) amongst weakness in Europe for the short-fall.

The man seated opposite appeared every bit the successful tycoon. There was authority in his speech and command in his presence. He exuded energy. We had been chatting during the meal but I had been reluctant to take his name, certain that he was known to everyone but me. The occasion was an elaborate dinner at the York Club given by John Bassett to honor Gavin Astor, later Lord Astor, son of the publisher of the London Times . I was one of perhaps eighty guests. The tables were arranged in rows, and the man across from me had dominated the conversation around him, speaking spiritedly and informedly on a number of subjects. After a brief lull in the conversation, he addressed himself to me. "Well now, Mr. Templeton, you left Maclean's because of a dust-up with management. What are you doing now?' "Inventing," I said

27. The Wright Brothers | Inventing A Flying Machine
Who were Wilbur and Orville inventing a Flying Machine The Aerial Age Begins inventing a Flying Machine 1899 Getting Acquainted with Aeronautics
Between 1899 and 1905, the Wright brothers conducted a program of aeronautical research and experimentation that led to the first successful powered airplane in 1903 and a refined, practical flying machine two years later. All successful airplanes since then have incorporated the basic design elements of the 1903 Wright Flyer. The genius of Wilbur and Orville lay not only in the singular act of getting a flying machine into the air, but also in the approach they evolved and employed to create the technology of flight. Their method of evaluating data gathered by testing an aircraft in flight, then refining the design based on those results, remains an essential tool in aerospace research and development.

Inventing journalism
for months now. devised to slow typists down , lest the hammers jam. (pre-Watergate?) basic responsibilities of journalism:
  • Serve the community. Bring disparate facts together to form a larger, clearer picture. Tell necessary stories that otherwise vanish into obscurity.
We gather information, see the narrative elucidated by the facts, and tell the story in the best possible way to get the thesis of the narrative across to our readers, viewers, listeners. (Feel free to answer that in the comments.) Journalism can be that simple. Hemingway wrote text, Capa took pictures, others shoot video or design Web interfaces, but we all flip those three switches. Community, facts, narrative. Ten things journalists can do to reinvent journalism When we worry about whether our story will make it to A1, that stops us from serving our readers. When we cover meetings, we think too much about the process and not enough about the narrative. When we ignore our readers we forget our audience, our purpose, and our community. Keep community, facts, and narrative in mind when you read

· Matthew Nagel, 25, can move objects with his thoughts. The paralyzed former high school football star, whose spinal cord was severed in a stabbing incident, has a jack coming out of the right side of his skull. Sensors in his brain can read his neurons as they fire. These are connected via computer to a robotic hand. When he thinks about moving his hand, the artificial thumb and forefinger open and close. Researchers hope this technology will, within our lifetimes, allow the wheelchair-bound to walk. The military hopes it will allow pilots to fly jets using their minds. · Around the country, companies such as Memory Pharmaceuticals, Sention, Helicon Therapeutics, Saegis Pharmaceuticals and Cortex Pharmaceuticals are racing to bring memory-enhancing drugs to market before the end of this decade. If clinical trials continue successfully, these pills could be a bigger pharmaceutical bonanza than Viagra. Not only do they hold the promise of banishing the senior moments of aging baby boomers; they might improve the SAT scores of kids by 200 points or more.

    Inventing the Tablet PC
    by Suzanne Ross
    For over twenty years scientists have been dreaming about creating a real P.A.D.D., the slate device that the inhabitants of Star Trek used to record and access data as they moved around the starship Enterprise. There have been attempts to duplicate it over the years, but the Tablet PC may be the first successful incarnation. Some of this is timing - consumers are demanding more from their computers, and they want what the Tablet offers. The other reason is research - years of hard work and data gathering have made the Tablet PC possible. Tablet PC is an evolution of the portable PC. It takes the best from a standard laptop and adds features that make retiring your laptop one of the smartest ideas you've ever had. To start with, it uses multi-modal input - you can input with keyboard, pen, or voice. While you may be committing a social faux pas by burying your head behind a computer screen as you click on a keyboard during a meeting, you will feel perfectly comfortable taking notes in your own handwriting on the Tablet PC. Even better, the handwriting recognition in Tablet PC can take your handwriting (as long as your writing doesn't resemble chicken scratches) and transform it into digital text. You can then search your handwritten notes.
