Today in History: First Dishwasher marketed in 1889

On this day in 1889, the first dish washing machine was marketed in Chicago, Illinois. Josephine Cochrane patented her invention in 1886. A wealthy socialite, Cochrane designed the dishwasher because she was tired of her best china being chipped by the hired help. Cochrane’s dishwasher company eventually became KitchenAid. Cochrane died in 1913 at the age of 74.

Today in History: Ireland Bans Smoking in the Workplace

In 2004, Ireland becomes the first country to ban smoking in all workplaces. Contrary to initial concerns, the ban had no adverse economic effects, and soon several other countries passed similar legislation. According to the World Health Organization, tobacco smoke is the single greatest cause of preventable death globally.

Today in History: 3.2% Beer & Wine Sales Made Legal

Beer, ca. 1900

Today in History: 3.2% Beer & Wine Sales Made Legal

On this day in 1933, President Roosevelt signed the bill which legalized the sale of 3.2% beer and wine. Nine months before Prohibition was completely repealed, the President signed the Beer and Wine Revenue Act, fulfilling a campaign promise. Because Prohibition was still officially the law, there had to be a limit on the amount of alcohol allowed in beer. Hearings were held and the political process worked out a standard that could gather the necessary votes — 3.2 percent alcohol by weight.

Today in History: Lucian Bernhard born in 1883

Lucian Bernhard (March 15, 1883 – May 29, 1972) was a German graphic and type designer during the first half of the twentieth century. He was influential in helping create the design style known as Plakatstil (Poster Style), which used reductive imagery and flat-color as well as Sachplakat (‘object poster’) which restricted the image to advertising simply the object and its brand name. Among his most famous works were poster designs for Stiller shoes, Manoli cigarettes, and Priester matches.

Today in History: Aspirin hits the world market

Pain Relief, 1930s

Today in History: Aspirin hits the world market
Aspirin is a medication used to treat pain, fever, or inflammation. A precursor to aspirin found in leaves from the willow tree has been used for its health effects for at least 2,400 years. In 1897, scientists at the Bayer company began studying acetylsalicylic acid as a less-irritating replacement medication for common salicylate medicines. By 1899, Bayer had named it “Aspirin” and sold it around the world. Aspirin’s popularity grew over the first half of the twentieth century leading to competition between many brands and formulations.

Today is National Dentist’s Day

Kolynos Toothpaste, 1948

Today is National Dentist’s Day
Observed annually on March 6, it is time to say “Thank You” to your dentist. Most of us would rather be someplace else than sitting in a dental chair. However, when our checkup is done, our teeth are cleaned, the cavities are filled, the broken tooth is fixed, or a toothache is gone, we appreciate what the dentist has done for us. Keep brushing those teeth …

Today is National #Absinthe Day. 

Absinthe, 1895

Today is National #Absinthe Day
Absinthe is a very strong green aniseed-flavored liqueur (actually spirit, as it is unsweetened), originally made with the shrub wormwood. French doctor, Pierre Ordinaire, has been credited with the creation of absinthe in the early 19th century. He prescribed it to his patients as a cure for many illnesses. Absinthe became popular among artists and writers as it was rumored to have hallucinogenic effects. Its reputation took severe a downhill turn at the end of the 19th century when the green liquid was blamed for causing madness. In 1905, a French worker is said to have murdered his wife and children after having spent the day drinking absinthe. The drink was soon banned in France, much of Europe and the United States. In 2007, a less potent version of the original absinthe was legalized in the U.S.
