Over 37,000,000 immigrants come to the United States every year. But how much do they really affect America? People like Albert Einstein, Nikola Tesla, and Levi Strauss all came to the U.S from different countries and changed our world today. Without them, some of the most advanced technology, scientific discoveries, and innovative clothes wouldn’t exist today. The fields of science, technology, and fashion were positively impacted by immigrants.
In 1936, Phyllis Wright, a sixth-grader that hoped to understand what scientist prayed about, sent a letter to Albert Einstein, who responded to her inquiry with a well-thought-out letter. Within the reply, Einstein used appeals to logos, ethos, and pathos; clever manipulation of the relationship between subject, speaker, and audience; and a well-articulated purpose, all of which made Einstein’s reply rhetorically effective.
Have you ever heard of Benjamin Banneker? That's what I thought. Benjamin was a African American, who of course started his life out as a slave. If it wasn’t for Benjamin our nation's capitol wouldn’t exist. In 1753 he invented the first striking clock. He showed others of his race to fight for their rights.
It is after 100 years of progress and social reform that I am here today, honoring writings of a muckraker from the 1800’s. Thank you all for being here today at the 100th Anniversary celebration to commemorate the bold and rebellious Susan B. Anthony. While creating a revolution when it comes to women’s voting rights, she also made a huge movement when it came to the abolishment of slavery in the United States.
Benjamin Banneker died on October 9, 1806 in Boston. Without his skills with math and science, the world would not be so far advance in the predictions and studies of astronomical events due to his calculations (published in almanac), and oddly, the world would know less about the connection cicada’s have with math. And these are his most significant contributions to math! We as a society would probably have low understanding of astronomical calculations. Banneker definitely is an underappreciated mathematician with a giant offering to the
"Give me a place to stand, and I will move the world," Archimedes once said. Archimedes lived in ancient Greece, from 287-212 BC. He was born in Syracuse, Italy, to a small family. Cousin of King Hieron III, and son of Phidias, Archimedes was very popular. He was skilled in many fields, including mathematics, physics, inventing, and astronomy. Archimedes devised various devices that were versatile in their use, persisted to improve upon their crude style of mathematics, and made an impact on society by using his countless inventions to shield Sicily from a Roman onslaught.
In 1668 the world 's first reflecting telescope was built by a well known scientist, Isaac Newton. Although Newton accomplished many things in his life he also faced many struggles growing up. Not only did Newton invent the world 's first reflecting telescope he developed the three laws of motion, discovered many new facts about gravity and had many other accomplishments throughout his lifetime. Isaac Newton is often referred to as one of the most influential scientists. He and Albert Einstein are almost equally matched contenders for this title (The Doc, 2015).
The importance of Ben Franklin has been told all throughout history, along with the famous $100 bill with his face on it. Drafting the Declaration of Independence, foudning universities and libraries, the post office, shaping policies in the U.S., publishing newspapers, making advances in science, and letting us use bifocals and using lighting for electricity. Even if this man never finished school, he did much reading and experiments that help us out today. The reason why I chose to write about Benjamin Franklin was because he was a very important Founding Father and it’s important for people to learn all about
"Do you know why most survivors of the Holocaust are vegan? It's because they know what it's like to be treated like an animal,” as said by Chuck Palahniuk, the man himself. The term Holocaust has been studied by many different sceintists for over 30 years and The holocaust was a very murderous event killing over 11 million people. The man who lead the very murderous event was Adolf Hitler. In some schools, the teachers try not to even bring up the holocaust because they try to forget about it. In this essay, I will be including what the holocaust means, the life of the notorious Adolf Hitler, the disrespectful treatment by the Nazis to the Jews, and finally the response of other countries such as America during 1933 to 1945.
As postulated by Max Planck (1858–1947), the quantum theory “was the most fundamental innovation in physical science in the first half of the twentieth century, because of the establishment of a new system of physics and the construction of a philosophical worldview that appeared to deny the possibility of a complete understanding of reality” (“Quantum mechanics”,2005). In fact, the quantum theory is a probabilistic act; the act of finding a small particle in the whole universe. In other words, the theory deals with a particle as if it is present anywhere in the universe, but once it is observed, it is found.
In 1935 Einstein and Rosen used the theory of General Relativity to try to prove the existence of wormholes. The theory of a shortcut in space-time.
Isaac Newton was truly an amazing man, who had made many inventions and discoveries, allowing science to advance in an uncountable amount of ways. Newton was very smart at a very young age. Throughout his college years and into his teaching career is when he made most of his discoveries in the mathematical and scientific fields. He will be remembered and respected for the lasting impact he had on the modern world. Newton should be looked upon as a role model for scientists, mathematicians, and even inventors.
