Looking at the past, and exploring technologies that have had an impact on society is a valuable tool for entrepreneurs. There is much to learn about the Industrial Revolution and how the technologies developed at the time played such a huge role. The Industrial Revolution first instigated in England, then spread like wildfire throughout the world during the 18th and early 19th centuries. The lives of ordinary people was transformed dramatically, by a series of engineering inventions and industrial achievements allowing industry to develop so fast that society could barely keep up. One of the major inventions that helped launch the industrial revolution was the steam Locomotive.
Modern electricity is still based on Thomas Edison’s system. Who knows, without Edison you may have never seen a film in your life. He has a great legacy that has gone all around the world. He advanced things such as the light bulb, and we still use light bulbs to this day, its just modern inventors advanced it. The same LED light bulbs we use today are a lot like the lightbulb Thomas Edison made.
The incandescent lamp was already created by previous inventors; however, their versions were not effective and cheap enough for mass-production commercially. Edison eventually understood that the light bulb needed to have a low current, and thus, high resistance as well as voltage. Additionally, the design required a long-lasting filament, which was extremely difficult to find. After his endeavor comprising of thousands of meticulous experiments, Edison finally used a carbonized cotton thread as the filament that successfully lit the light bulb for about 13.5 hours. Edison would improve his invention until November 4, 1879, when he filed a patent for a light bulb using "a carbon filament or strip coiled and connected to platina contact wires".
Her education I think changed a lot she went to school , But she knew sooner or later they would move again, without her dad she wouldn’t be able to know as much information as she did going to school but she learned a lot from her mom and dad.

Firstly, in chapter 8, his parents are not satisfied with the education in Waknuk and they have decided to send him to a school in Kentak; there he learns new things that the rest of the group does not. He is able to share and discuss what is being taught to him in his school to his telepathic group through thought shapes. According to David, “It was a great satisfaction to learn and know more, it helped to ease one over a lot of puzzling
As the world evolved many inventions were invented by one country and another country took its advantage and made something better. This paper talks about Gun powder history which dates back to 850 AD, during the Tang Dynasty (9th century). Chinese were known for inventing mechanical clock, gunpowder, printing, or the compass. they invented thousands of years ago and some of their inventions were evolved by other middle eastern and European countries. Also their invention led to much other invention such as gunpowder lead to building of cannons to handheld guns.
But what is the purpose behind all of those different variations of his life? Well, first of all it is nice to know about his life and how he went from someone who worked at the railroad delivering his own newspaper to being one of the greatest inventors of all time. All of these different accounts are about his life, from just a brief summary of Edison’s life to a detailed account of his life from youth to old age. The first biography that comes to mind is Edison, His Life and Inventions by Frank Dyer and Thomas Commerford Martin. In the introduction, he starts out by saying that prior to this book, no book had been published that had the complete life of Edison (Intro, pg.1) He continues to say that this book will let the reader dive into the life of Edison and decide for themselves whether or not he was an influential person and a great contributor to today’s society.
They were there by my side, and many of them understood my pain because they have once lost a grandparent in their life before, they would tell me that the pain would pass by soon, and that life keeps going. At school I piled myself with work from classes I knew I would get distracted I was able to forget my pain. With my grandmother’s passing I saw my future in helping others, and working on the medical field as a nurse. I know you can’t save everyone, but I would like to help them, and make their pain go away, or at least treat them until their final days. I have volunteered at the Food Bank, where I package rice to send to people around the world are food insecure.
She graduated and soon started job hunting. Her primary focus was to work for the School Board and to help kids with disabilities. Once she does get an interview, the interviewer at the school board tells her, “Come back and see me after you get the cochlear implant because we don’t hire deaf teachers.” Bart took that personally and was shocked someone would say that.
