An inventor, Thomas Edison, made many inventions that you still use today. Although he died a long time ago, he still affects society in the past and in the present. His inventions led him to popularity, and soon enough, a hero of society.
C I found in the article The Amazing Adventures of Benjamin Franklin it says “Tired of changing eye glasses to see near and far.” E This quote shows me that if people use Bifocal glasses then how could people forget about their maker. C Another quote in the article The Amazing Adventures of Ben Franklin said “Franklin simply combined two pairs into one.” E This quote shows me that when he combined the two that no one has ever made done this and he is the only one that's done this before. C The last quote I found in the article the amazing adventures of Benjamin Franklin it states “He praised his device as allowing him to see both his dinner and who was speaking to him.” E This quote shows me that he was confident in his work and he was probably thinking I will never be forgotten once I make these glasses. SS That is just a few reasons that Benjamin Franklin can never be forgotten. Body Paragraph #3 : _The_lightning rods_________________________ RA The last reason that I think that Ben Franklin can not be forgotten is because of his amazing discovery with the key connected to the lightning

Nikola Tesla dedicated his life to improving not just the scientific field of physics, but also how people lived their lives. Through his discoveries in commercial electricity, Tesla changed the world in the 20th century and molded the way technology was used. His contributions to electricity, most notably the alternative-current (AC) electrical system, are still widely-used today in contemporary society. Most people today have heard the Tesla name through the renowned Tesla motors, but few understand the impact that Nikola Tesla left in modern science and technology. Tesla was born on July 10, 1856 in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, what is now Smiljan, Croatia, to an Orthodox priest and a mother who invented home appliances.
Tesla in History Nikola Tesla was born in the 1850’s, to a father who was a preacher, and a mother who was a hard worker. It was July 9/10 in 1856. I say both 9th and 10th because he was born at between the two. He started to study physics and electricity even as a child and continued to do so in college. After realizing that the best opportunities for a successful life doing what he loved were in America and getting a referral to work for the famous Thomas Edison by mutual friend Charles Batchelor, Tesla immigrated and sailed to New York with little more to his name than a few dollars, and made his way to Edison’s office to introduce himself and a wonderful new idea he had come up with to change the world.
Over the past two centuries, Benjamin Franklin has become the businessman known for being “self-made.” That is to say our modern understanding of Franklin is that of a man who invented his own name and fortune alongside the invention that was, and is, the United States. Just as the meaning of the United States has been transformed by years of misinterpretations, exaggerations, and even lies, the story of Benjamin Franklin has been waxed and shined by centuries of American industry. Although not completely inaccurate, the story we are left with today, that Franklin was a quintessential example of what it means to be “self-made,” happens to resonate very differently among those who are well-informed about his life, and those who only know the
The Worst Inventor In History Thomas Midgley tremendously impacted modern times. Midgley came from a family of inventors. He had over 100 patents in his lifetime. He was a phenomenal problem solver.

As the author of the text has said, “Isn’t it amazing thought that, one day, a prehistoric man… must have realised that meat from wild animals was easier to chew if it was held over a fire?” (Gombrich 6-7) These tools that were made unintentionally from the primitive people, opened an era of technological achievements. Tools were made accidently as prehistoric men tried to live more comfortably. Because of the positive progress in technology, “when we are talking, or eating some bread, using tools or warming ourselves by fire, we should remember those early people with gratitude, for they were the greatest inventors of all time.” (Gombrich
The coil was and still is used in everyday objects and it revolutionized wireless electricity. Dickerson concluded that “Tesla's Invention completely revolutionized the way electricity was understood and used. Radios and televisions still use variations of the Tesla Coil today.”(Dickerson). After his inventions, entrepreneurs began to build off of his initial idea and create today's society and their understanding of electricity used in daily lives. Tesla also paved the way for new fundamentals of understanding life through electricity for other scientists.
I’m sure you’ve heard arguments for both sides. Some chefs won’t grill without letting their ribeyes relax in the fridge overnight to soak in their favorite brine. Others won’t touch the steak until the moment before it goes on the grill. What’ the deal? Big Green Egg Dallas: Let’s Talk About Salt Two schools of thought dominate
Thomas Edison is usually credited with the invention of the light bulb, but the famous inventor wasn 't the only one who contributed to the idea. According to lifescience.com "an Italian inventor named Alessandro Volta developed the first practical method of generalizing electricity.". Thomas Jefferson with the help of other inventors that came long before he did invented the first way to generalize electricity. Thomas Edison 's lamp became the first ever working lamp. The light bulb made a huge impact at that time and until now.
