Its original purpose was to keep water out of ammunition cases and to make quick repairs to things like jeeps, firearms, or even aircraft. Today, in military circles, duct tape is still commonly referred to as ‘gun tape’. When World War II ended, the original army green color of duct tape changed to the classic silver, and duct tape immediately became common use for fixing ductwork in people’s houses. (This is where the name “duct tape” came from.) Nearly thirty years later, former CEO of Manico, Inc., Jack Kahl “officially” changed the name to Duck Tape® by commercializing it and giving it personality.
THE HISTORY OF THE PHONOGRAPH HEATHER HANNETT HUMN303 PROF. FAUGHT APRIL 2ND, 2012 Thomas Edison created the phonograph in 1877. It was created only shortly after the telephone and the telegraph, once he saw the results from those he released the phonograph. Omphlegraph, antiphone, and didaskaphone are just some of the names someone wrote in the log book in Thomas Edison’s laboratory in 1877 for the phonograph. At first, they thought it would be used to reproduce the human voice, but they had no clear idea of its exact purpose (Stross, 2010). Edison once said “Anything that won’t sell, I don’t want to invent.” But all his life, he was a better inventor than a salesman.
Got to give us what we need. Our freedom of speech is freedom or death. We got to fight the powers that be.” Lee’s intentions for this particular song to be played in the beginning and throughout the film, is to inform the audience about one of the film’s main arguments about racism and how it is manifested within the different ethnicities and cultures. In the beginning of the film the first conflict between the characters, Sal, the owner of the pizzeria in the black community, and Buggin’ Out, demonstrates how racism is prevailed in the film. When Buggin’ Out sits down to have a slice of pizza he notices Sal’s “Wall of Fame” only has pictures of famous Italian Americans.
Honest Abe Abraham Lincoln is famous for wearing the tallest hats, but was most influential for his accomplishment for reuniting the country. Abraham Lincoln was born on February 12, 1809 near Hodgenville, Kentucky. As a child, he was a bibliophile. The white house took in his wife, and two young sons, because one of them had pasted away. His political party was Republican serving only two terms, as he was assassinated on April 15, 1865.
As the designated shower cleaner in my home, I have squeegeed and sponged, scrubbed, scoured, and rubbed until my fingers were white. Removing mildew from the grout and residues from the tub and tiles is hard work, and I hated it. So, three years ago, when I first heard on radio about a product--called Clean Shower--that could relieve me of this unpleasant chore, I checked it out immediately. I wasn't disappointed. In my view, Clean Shower and products like it are the best thing to appear on grocery shelves since sliced bread.
I couldn’t imagine devoting most of my life to building a dome. I was amazed he never quit with all the mishaps that happened with the marble and just after working on it for so long that that was all he did eat sleep and breath the dome. Filippo was very cunning and funny with all the pranks he played on people. For instance his greatest rival was Lorenzo Ghiberti and they had to work together on the dome and to prove he was superior to him, Filippo pretended to be dying so Lorenzo had to be in charge of the project. Once Lorenzo messed up Filippo came back and fixed everything and embarrassed
(Gaebler, 2013) Barbering is something that I have found to be very interesting. There is nothing more attractive to me than a man or young man with a nice haircut. With this passion of mine I have decided to become a Barber shop owner. Most, people think that just because you like to see a male with a fresh haircut and nicely trimmed beard that is no reason to go into the business. Being a mother of three boys myself, I have found that the whole Barbershop experience is kind of offensive to women, at least in the African American community, and that is something that I want to change.
According to this website, www.rankmytattoos.com (2003-2007), “The Romans used body piercings only with a purpose.” Men would pierce their nipples to symbolize power and strength. To many men this was shown as their dedication and badge of honor towards the Roman Empire. This piercing also showed their loyalty to Caesar, who also had his nipples pierced. According to the article, The Piercing Temple: Body Piercing History, gladiators would insert a ring into the head of their penis' and attach it to their scrotum in order to tuck it back and avoid serious injury to their bodies. (Morrison, Cheyenne, 1998).

Another way McRaven’s speech makes connections in the IB Learner profile is when he discusses the way the Seals had to prep their uniforms each morning. No matter how hard they would polish their uniforms to perfection, the instructors always find something wrong with their suits. The consequences would be to roll in the sand, looking like a sugar cookie. Then the cycle would repeat all over, each day. The problem McRaven found out about the men, was
