His notes were written backwards, probably because he didn't want people to read about his discoveries and observations. In order to read Leonardo's notes, one has to hold them up to a mirror. In 1472 he entered a painters' guild. His earliest extensive works date back to this time. Later in1482 Da Vinci worked for Duke Lodovico Sforza in Milan for 18 years.
He named this protest ¨Give Peace a Chance¨ . On his honeymoon,in the Presidential Suite at the Hilton Amsterdam, he and his wife, Yoko Ono, had a public bed in, which was an experimental way of spreading peace. They allowed the press to come into their hotel room and document everything they said or did. They hung signs above the bed that read ¨Hair Peace” and “Bed Peace”. These two week long bed ins for peace helped people take their minds off of the raging Vietnam war and turned into a media spectacle.He tried to have a bed in in America but was denied, instead he had one in Montreal.
He photographed a Paris street scene from his apartment window using a camera obscura and his invented daguerreotype process. The same year, William Henry Fox Talbot (1800-1877), an Englishman developed a photographic process that produced paper negatives and prints. During the next twenty years, much before the civil war, photography was developed to a great extent in Europe and America. In 1847, during the Mexican -American War few daguerreotypes were taken of army officials and troop movements. The British Government, during the Crimean War, sent several photographers to document the war.
In 1796, the new technology of the lithographic print produced the first illustrated poster. By 1889, the world’s first 24 sheet billboard was displayed at the Paris Exposition and the main purpose of billboards
Mattel went on to become a publicly owned company in 1960 with its common stock being listed on the New York and Pacific Coast Stock Exchanges. In 1968, Mattel again made its mark with ‘Hot Wheels’, the number one name in die–cast vehicles due to their customized modified designs and candy-coloured paint jobs. Later that year, Mattel purchased Monogram Models as the first step in its ‘World of the Young’ acquisition strategy. Metaframe, a pet products company; Turco, a manufacturer of playground equipment; Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus; Circus World, a theme park; Western Publishing Company; and Radnitz/Mattel Productions, a motion picture production company soon followed that initial
Claude Monet (also known as Oscar-Claude Monet) was one of the greatest artists of the 19th and 20th centuries. He was born November 14, 1840 in Paris and died December 5, 1926 at the age of 86. Claude Monet was the founder of French impressionist painting and was the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement’s philosophy. In 1845 Monet’s family moved to Normandy and Monet’s father wanted him to follow his footsteps and take over the grocery store, but Monet wanted to be an artist. On April 1851 Monet entered the Le Havre secondary school of the arts.
This got him to start exploring and appreciating the beauty of the natural world. Monet was in the military for two years, but he wanted to pursue art. His aunt told him that if he enrolled in a formal art institute, then she would buy his way out of service. In 1859, Monet moved to Paris and enrolled at the Academie Suisse. The academy, though, was greatly inspired by art in the Renaissance period.
Until then, most astronomers thought the Milky Way and the universe were the same things. Hubble now knew that the universe was considerably bigger than the Milky Way, it contained other galaxies or ‘island universes.’ Three days after his thirty-fifth birthday, Hubble’s discovery was announced – not in a scientific journal – but in The New York Times. His results had actually been circulating quietly among America’s astronomers for some time: the official presentation came in a paper he submitted to be read at January 1, 1925, meeting of the American Astronomical Society. Hubble had changed our view of the universe forever. Our own vast galaxy, home to our sun and 100 billion other stars, but one of the billions of other galaxies.
More than 120 million customers per week visit Philips stores worldwide. In this paper, I will introduce Philips and give a little background on its history. I will discuss in detail, the analysis and cost structure of the company. I will also discuss the primary economic variables that will impact the long-run profitability of Philips. In the 1920s, the company started to manufacture other products, such as vacuum tubes.
As in 1880, defective kerosene street lights caused nearly two of every five fires in New York City. Carbon arc light composes two carbon-made electrodes and alternating current is used to ensure consumption of both electrodes is in equal rates. It was the first widely-used type of electric street lighting. The title of ‘First City of Light’ was given to Tamworth, New South Wales in Australia due to the first location to implement the arc lights as the city’s street lights in 1888. Although the emergence of arc light as street light prevents the use of kerosene, it has its disadvantages.
