Edison VS Tesla Name Subject Date Professor University Many believe that Thomas Edison was the inventor of the incandescent light bulb and regards him as a symbol for electrical ingenuity. But to others, Thomas Edison was only the CEO of a corporation that invented and pioneered several electric components and devices as we know them today. Edison was not so much an inventor or innovator, but an entrepreneur and businessman. Of the thousands of engineers and employees under Edison, one of them stood out among the rest. His name was Nikola Tesla.
All of these experiments were done with his assistant, Dr. Richtofen. Without Maxis, Richtofen and Schuster would complete the first successful teleportation with a walnut using a very small amount of 115. When Maxis found out about this, he criticized Richtofen for not working on his project and that teleporting a walnut wasn't a big deal. Maxis then told Richtofen that he was going to make a deal with the Nazi party for money and equipment in exchange for weapons. These new weapons Group 935 created were also powered by 115.
The majority of the chapter takes place during the mid-1900s and therefore, as one might imagine, anti-Semitism was omnipresent. In one specific case where anti-Semitism affected the scientific world, György Hevesy, a Jew who discovered radioactive element tracers and a way to detect if certain elements were present in matter, was prevented from winning a Nobel Prize due to the sole fact that he was Jewish. Additionally, many of his colleagues challenged his work and prevented one of his elemental discoveries from making Weinberg 2 it onto the table. Although one might assume that the periodic table is exclusively science related and has no connection with societal aspects, Kean proves with stories such as Hevesy’s that politics in addition to many other fields shaped the table’s path. Politics helped determine the outcome of the periodic table, or so Kean claims.
His sense of humor has also landed in political hot water for making jokes about building a electrical fence on the U.S. border. Cain also made a notable foreign policy mistake when he said that he could not name the president of Uzbekistan. Despite these mishaps, he has become one of the candidates to watch as the race for the Republican presidential nomination heats
Rudolf Christian Karl Diesel published a description of his invention in 1893 titled "The Theory and Construction of a Rational Heat Engine." That very same year he built the first diesel engine and acquired a patent for it. He ran into some problems and had to work with it a lot to get it functioning properly, but he was diligent. He eventually had his engine running on peanut oil and later, vegetable oil. Wide use of Rudolf Diesel's engine would have made petroleum-based fuel obsolete.
Later, while he was a professor at Caltech, he started to become an artist. When he decided to sell his drawings, he went by the name of “Ofey”. A few years later, Feynman won the Nobel Prize for Physics, but he didn’t want it. He even tried to avoid accepting
They gave each contestant $4.50, which was a lot in 1963. They added in a confederate who is a 47 year old accountant, and an actor who wore a grey lab coat. The instrument used to “scare” the contestants was a scary-looking shock generator that went to a very high voltage. “’We didn’t need Milgram to tell us we have a tendency to obey orders. What we don’t know before Milgrams experiment’s is just how powerful the tendency is.
With the Palmer raids there was a man named Mitchell Palmer who was a Quaker. He was an attorney general, and invoked the Espionage Act of 1917 and the Sedition Act of 1918 allowing his troops to deport aliens without a trial or hearing. The differences are just the thirty year difference, but still the same hysteria. Security has evolved overtime making public places safer, but on the other hand has people still worried for
It took a scientist’s discovery to run a factory at its maximum potential but it’s the smoke stacks from those factories that are contributing to the depletion of our ozone layer. Eli Lilly, a huge pharmaceutical company, employs multiple medical scientists to work on formulating drugs for an infinite amount diseases and ailments. It’s those same drugs that are causing terrible addictions and unfortunate deaths. Lastly science has made it possible for people around the world to enjoy all types of electronics; TVs, iPods, cell phones, and computers, making old fashioned family night just that…old fashioned (Telang,
I chose the Hulk as my superhero because I think he is pretty interesting and he is one of the easyiest to do for this project.
