Following in the footsteps of the Russell Grader Manufacturing Company – who produced the first motorised grader – Champion began manufacturing motor graders in 1928. The company went on to produce its first fully-hydraulic model in 1936 – the first hydraulic tractor that performed reliably – and continued to improve the design and functionality of their graders over the next few decades. In 1975, Champion introduced its Series I motor graders – a new generation of graders with both technological and design improvements. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, the company continued to improved their motor graders by adding articulated frames, duramide bearings and Cummins

Child labour has been happening since the beginning of the industrial revolution when factories were first introduced.

It is said that child labour was crucial during the Industrial Revolution for it to succeed. By the early 1800s, England had employed over a million child workers. "Factory owners were looking for cheap, malleable and fast-learning work forces – and found them ready-made among the children of the urban workhouses," states Professor Jane Humphries from Oxford.
Edison was only 22 years old. With this success, he quit his work as a telegrapher to devote himself full-time to inventing.In 1870, Thomas Edison set up his first small laboratory and manufacturing facility in Newark, New Jersey, and employed several machinists. As an independent entrepreneur, Edison formed many partnerships and developed his products for the highest bidder. Often that was Western Union Telegraph Company, the industry leader, but just as often, it was one of Western Union's rivals. In one such instance, Edison devised for Western Union the quadruplex telegraph, capable of transmitting two signals in two different directions on the same wire, but railroad tycoon Jay Gould snatched the invention from Western Union, paying Edison more than $100,000 in cash, bonds and stock, and generating years of litigation.At around the age of 12, Edison started to lose his

Chapter 6 Solids In Froebel’s Kindergarten, the first six Gifts are solid bodies consisting of soft, colored knitted balls of Gift 1; a three-piece set of wooden bodies (sphere, cylinder and cube) of Gift 2; wood cubes of Gifts 3 and 5; and, rectangular wood prisms of Gifts 4 and 6. These different-shaped solids are scaled to Kindergarten’s one-inch square grid, which provides a uniform area for child play with the potential for judiciously placing and combining the Gifts in creative ways. Wright emphasized the importance of maple blocks in his fingers, which left many academic researchers and skillful practitioners, as strong advocates of his architecture, with the false impression that Froebel’s Gifts consist solely of building blocks. A belief that is simply not true, with absolutely no basis of fact, neither in general practice nor in the manner that Wright had played with these wooden bodies. Nevertheless, the wood cubes are the most familiar of the Kindergarten playthings and therefore warrant a word of caution regarding Wright 's childhood experiences with the Gifts and Occupations.
