The first telephone was patented by bell in 1876 this was during what is now known as the second industrial revolution. This was a breakthrough in telegraphy communications that would in time lead to one of the most influential invention of our generation, the mobile phone. Bells telephone was not very aesthetically pleasing but it was the first of its kind and also the first device ever to allow communication through electromagnet transmitting currants. Bell did for the telephone what henry ford did for the automobile industry. Bell was not the first to experiment with telephonic device, bell and his companies were the first to develop practical and commercial telephone that would allow a successful business to build and grow.
Euclid’s book of elements spread through Europe and was highly regarded by other mathematicians. It spread a lot more quickly and rapidly due to the invention of the printing press during the Renaissance period. It could now be printed in other languages and other countries around the world became able to study Euclid’s work and conclude more mathematical theorems off the basis of his work. A lot of other famous mathematicians would have started their career studying Euclid’s books as he was one the earliest people ever to make such a huge contribution to mathematics Euclid died around the year 285 BC. He contributed hugely to the understanding of mathematics and geometry, especially in shapes.
It is said that the greatest invention of all time is the printing press, and not many can argue against that. The first printing press has made a path to the printing press made in the 1800’s to more modern copying machines that we use everyday. We owe all of these newer printing machines to the man who made the most famous version of the greatest invention of all time, Johannes Gutenberg. The creator of the printing press, Johannes Gensfleisch zur Laden zum Gutenberg, was born in Mainz, Germany, circa 1395. In his youth, Gutenberg developed great skill in working with metal and other malleable materials.
As we slowly grow to learn new words, and have more experiences through the pages, our minds expand. While the words grow harder, the pages grow longer our literary development becomes advanced. As years have progressed I have increased my ability to read and write through the great childhood experience that is known as, going to school. “Start them young” was
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.
The Industrial Revolution was a period in time in which manufacturing evolved from agricultural to more mechanical means. It began in England in the late 18th century and lasted for many decades beyond. Changes in textiles, manufacturing, transportation, and economic and social were the main areas where technology advanced. Because there was scarcity in the New World, the Americas didn’t have their Revolution until later when a man named Samuel Slater opened the first mill. It was the first industrial mill in the United States and was made in 1790.
Although they had acquired the land a full century earlier, it was not until the granting of building agreements for Bedford Square in 1776 that advanced construction began. Earl of Southampton, having apparent long-term vision for his estate, provided for successful future redevelopment with those grants, which allowed the estate to “pull down, replan, and rebuild” after leases fell (Olsen, 43). These establishments involved sophisticated town planning that surpassed all others in London at the time and successfully “transformed northern Bloomsbury into a restricted upper-middle-class suburb” (Olsen, 61). Francis Russell, the 5th Duke of Bedford, had significant influence on his estate and was responsible for much of its development. Before reconstruction, Covent Garden was the center of all of the Russell estates.
The American Renaissance began in the United States during the late 1820’s; this movement broadened Americans’ literary and artistic horizons. The Transportation Revolution was one of the main causes of the American Renaissance; it increased the consumer demand for books, and by 1850 nearly seventy-five percent of books in the United States were written by American authors. During this time the Romantic era was taking place in Europe; this also contributed to the rise of the American Renaissance. Americans began to try and convey their nationalism through writing and art, as well as capture the uniqueness of the United States (Stewart 11). There were many significant authors that published works during the antebellum period.

The Victorian Internet The magnificent discovery of the telegraph. The new development in communication technology, the telegraph which allowed people to almost communicate instantly covering up great distances. The author saw that the telegraph development was significantly more important than modern age internet. It was a boost to the global communication. In this book Standage is going to cover up the story from the early inventions in the field of communication up till the age of the internet.
Following the time of a growing nation was the New England Renaissance. During this 15 year time period, our country burst into creativity. The Golden Age, or Sunlight era was a time for not only literature, but for growth in cities, industry, technology, and the westward movement.

In the new world, one chronicler expressed at the first sight of America, that, The Air at twelve leagues’ distance smelt as sweet as a new-born garden” (let.rug.nl). Rainforest, oceans, and rivers, for example, has changed because of environmental factors because of mining for mineral resources. The European writers image of America and the idea to advertised and persuade newcomers to the new world as an ideal situation obviously worked out.
