Today in History: Patent for the Zipper in 1893

Whitcomb Judson patented and introduced the first modern “zipper” at the Chicago World’s Fair of 1893. He had improved upon an earlier idea dating back to 1851 and began to market what he called a “Clasp Locker” (a fastener for shoes). Supposedly, Judson made created his zipper for a friend who had problems with his back (from bending down to tie his shoes).

Today in History: Opening of the Hannover Fair in 1947

Today in History: Opening of the Hannover Fair in 1947

71 years ago today, the first Hannover (Trade) Fair opened in an undamaged factory building in the south of Hannover. British military authorities organized the fair to support post-war Germany’s economic success. Some 1,300 exhibitors showed a cross section of German export production, including dental prostheses, collapsible strollers and German’s future export sensation, the VW Beetle. The fair was a starting signal for the German economic miracle, counting more than 700,000 visitors from 52 nations in only 21 days. Hannover succeeded the then East German city of Leipzig as the major new trade fair city for West Germany and the fair developed into one of the most important industrial fairs in the world.

Today in History: International Electricity Exhibition of 1881

Today in History: International Electricity Exhibition of 1881

137 years ago today, the first International Exposition of Electricity opened in Paris. More than 1700 exhibitors from 15 countries presented their latest and greatest developments in electrical technology in the 3-month event. The fair provided an important impulse in the electrification of Europe. The public was able to admire inventions such as the dynamo by Zenobe Gramm, the Theatrophone by Clement Ader, the telephone by Alexander Graham Bell or an electric car by Gustave Trouvé. Highlight of the exhibition was Thomas Edison’s incandescent light bulb: at the opening, some 1000 “Edison lights” turned night into day.

Today is World Lion Day

Today is World Lion Day

Lion Day aims to raise awareness of the majestic hunter, the ultimate feline, the king of the jungle, the big fluffy kitty of the Serengeti… Hmm, we should have left it at ‘king of the jungle’.

Basically, it’s all about lions, but you’ve probably got that from the name.

This celebration of the animal kingdom’s most beautiful and fearsome creature was founded by Big Cat Rescue, the world’s largest accredited sanctuary dedicated to big cats. August 10th is a day for people to come together from across the world to pay tribute to the mighty lion in as many ways as possible. Though a fun and exciting occasion for all, its foundations are based in a very serious matter: lion numbers have dramatically declined to the point where the species needs to be placed on the endangered list, just like its larger cousin the tiger.

How you celebrate is entirely up to you. You could change your social media profile pictures to a lion for the day, draw a sketch and share it with friends, find out who has the loudest roar, or even get your coworkers to sponsor you to wear a lion jumpsuit to work, then make a donation to Big Cat Rescue’s ongoing mission.

At the very least, please Like the official Facebook page and follow @BigCatRescue on Twitter, because the more we spread the word, the greater the chances of these incredible animals gracing our planet forevermore.
