Happy Birthday, Christo

Happy Birthday, Christo

The avant-garde artist known as Christo (Christo Vladimirov Javacheff, born in Bulgaria) is turning 82 today. Christo is famous for his spectacular, large-scale installations. He and hiswife have wrapped the Reichstag in Berlin, the Pont Neuf in Paris, and turned New York’s Central Park orange with his project The Gates. But even at age 82, Christo shows no signs of slowing down. He is currently turning his attention to a grand project in the Abu Dhabi desert. We can’t wait to see it

Today is National Sewing Machine Day

Today is National Sewing Machine Day

National Sewing Machine Day honors the invention of the sewing machine. It is hard to imagine having to sew things together by hand, stitch by stitch. Skilled cabinet-maker and English inventor, Thomas Saint, received the first patent for a design of a sewing machine in 1790. It was meant for leather and canvas, was never advertised and no evidence of it, other than his drawings, could be found. In 1874, William Newton Wilson found Saint’s drawings in the London Patent Office, made adjustments and built a working model. This model is currently owned by the London Science Museum.Industrial use of the sewing machine reduced the burden that was placed upon housewives, moving clothing production from them and seamstresses to large-scale factories. This also resulted in a decrease in production time which caused the price of clothing to drop considerably.

Today is National Red Rose

Today is National Red Rose

National Red Rose Day honors the flower that is a symbol of love and romance. Red roses were used in many early cultures as decorations in wedding ceremonies and wedding attire. It was through this practice that, over the years, the red rose became known as a symbol of love and romance. The tradition of giving red roses as the strongest message of love is still practiced today.

Today in History: The Pen

Today in History: The Pen

On June 10, 1943, Hungarian-born László Biró received the first patent for the pen. Biró was a journalist who was frustrated with the use of the fountain pen: it took too much time to refill the ink and there seemed to be no way to avoid ink smudges. Biró noticed newspaper inks seemed to dry more quickly, thus rendering the paper stain free, and so he set out to design a pen using the same type of ink. He filed a British patent in 1938 and continued to develop and improve the pen’s design together with his brother György and their friend Juan Jorge Meynin. A new patent for the improved pen was filed in 1943: it was the first real ballpoint pen as we know it today. The pen became an immediate bestseller in the United States after World War II where it was first introduced in the fall of 1945 at a New York department store. Despite its high price of $9, some 10,000 pens were sold within the first week

Today in History: Persil – A Small Revolution in the Laundry World

Today in History: Persil – A Small Revolution in the Laundry World

Around 1900, housewives would not dare dream of laundry magic. Washing clothes was not only hard work. The process of soaking, cooking, rubbing the laundry on the wooden washboard, rinsing, sun-bleaching and drying could take days! Enter Fritz Henkel from Germany and his invention of the first “self-activated” laundry detergent. The manufacturer had developed a method to add a bleaching agent to its detergent base and thereby saving hard labor and time during the laundry chore. The chemical washing process essentially eliminated both the commonly loathed work of the washboard and the chore of sun-bleaching. A small revolution in the laundry world.
