Benjamin Rush was a founding father known best for his work as a physician, but that wasn’t all he was. He was also a chemist, writer, teacher/professor, and a signer of the Declaration of Independence. Benjamin Rush was much more than what people think he is. Benjamin Rush was born on December 24th, 1745, at Byberry, PA. In 1751, when his father, John Rush, died, him and his mother moved to Philadelphia where his mother ran a grocery store.
His family was a planter family, and they learned their morals and manners. When growing up, he had many characteristics, so he was a man of character his whole life, I like to say.

Fromm describes his early years having a “medieval atmosphere” where learning the tradition was the only thing (Friedman, 2013, p. 4). Fromm’s paternal great grandfather was a prominent rabbi in the Jewish community and his grandfather was one of the most important rabbis in the Frankfurt’s Jewish community at the time. His father was one of the ten siblings among which 6 girls married mostly teachers and 3 other boys turned out as a merchant, lawyer and doctor. Fromm’s maternal family grandparents migrated from Russia to Finland and eventually to Germany.
Sir Alexander Fleming was born August 6th 1881 in Lochfield, Scotland. He was born to Hugh Fleming and his second wife Grace Morton. At the tender age of seven Alexander’s father died and it fell upon his mother and oldest brother, Thomas, to keep both the family and the farm afloat. From here on Fleming showed a natural intelligence, uncommon for both his age and upbringing. At the age of 13 Fleming moved to London following his brothers John and Thomas, who were physicians.
I chose to review the fifth chapter of “New Ideas From Dead Economists” titled The Stormy Mind of John Stuart Mill. John Stuart Mill was born in 1806 in London to two strict parents who began to educate their son at a very young age. Mill’s father was James Mill, a famous historian and economist, who began to teach his son Greek at the age of three. The book reports that “by eight, the boy had read Plato, Xenophon, and Diogenes” and by twelve “Mill exhausted well-stocked libraries, reading Aristotle and Aristophanes and mastering calculus and geometry” (Buchholz 93). The vast amount of knowledge that Mill gained at a young age no doubt assisted him in becoming such a well-recognized philosopher and economist.
The Turing test is still considered a benchmark for charting the progression of A.I, although some question whether or not it 's still relevant because no computer is has been able to score a passing mark. His brilliance was exhibited when he created a chess computer program for a computer that was yet to exist, when he then tried to install it on an existing computer it simply failed. Fast forward some 48 years to 1996 and you could imagine his joy if he 'd been able to witness IBM 's Deep Blue chess computer beating world champion chess player, Gary Kasparov. I myself being in the field of computer science am simply astonished how a person can think 50 years ahead and make something that did not even existed then.

In 1679, Newton 's mother died which caused him to become extremely isolated for six months; he used this time to study gravity. Although Newton is best known for his work on gravity he also had many physical inventions. He is also known for the invention of calculus as well as another mathematician who they say invented it at the same time. Later on, he then published a book titled Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica which is considered to be one of the most influential books in the history of science today. Newton was elected president of Royal Society after the death of Robert Hookes in 170 3.
Beowulf, son of Higlac, was an epic hero and a good man. He did many noble deeds throughout his life. He saved the Danes, and he fought the dragon in his perishing battle. His ever expanding glory will never be burned in a pyre no matter how big. His accomplishments exceed the expectation of an average man.
One of my accomplishments that I am proud of is the Wanted Poster I made of Grendel, from the story Beowulf, for my senior English class. It was real fun to work on because I made him look like myself, but with a six pack. Every time I showed it to some it put a big smile on their face. This was a group assignment, but I couldn’t find a partner so I just worked on it myself.
