Today in History: NYC subway opens in 1904

New York Subway, Teubner, 1968

112 years ago today, New York City Mayor George McClellan inaugurates the city’s new rapid transit system, the subway. The original line ran approximately nine miles through 28 stations from City Hall north to Grand Central Station, then west to Times Square and up the West Side to 145th Street. The general public was invited to travel the new train at 7 pm on that day when more than 100,000 people paid a nickel to take their first rider under Manhattan. The New York City subway soon became America’s largest underground train network. Today, it has 26 lines, more than 450 stations in operation and some 4 ½ million daily passengers.

Today in History: 70 Years of Cannes Film Festival

Today in History: 70 Years of Cannes Film Festival

70 years ago today, the Festival International du Film took place in Cannes in southern France for the first time. The event was originally planned for 1939, but the outbreak of the Second World War prevented it from taking place. Within ten years, Cannes established itself as a leading European Film Festival, although it was canceled in 1948 and 1950 due to financial difficulties. The event was initially criticized for having a biased jury since its members were all French. The panel has since been internationalized and today the festival is popular with producers, directors and actors around the globe. Cannes has become a center of European film and its “Palme d’Or” is not only considered a proof of quality but has become an important competitor to the American Oscar.

Today in History: International Electricity Exhibition of 1881

Today in History: International Electricity Exhibition of 1881

135 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.

August 10, 2016 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.

August 9,2016 Today in History: First Davis Cup Final in 1900 116 years ago today, the first Davis Cup final took place between the United States and Great Britain, then playing under the name of the British Isles. The fist competition was held at the Longwood Cricket Club in Boston where the Americans surprised the British team with an early unbeatable 3-0 lead. The idea for the tournament was conceived in 1899 by four members of the Harvard University tennis team, who wanted to challenge the British to a tennis match. One of the four players, Dwight Davis, developed the tournament format and even purchased a trophy with his own money. The event was originally known as the International Lawn Tennis Challenge, but soon became known as the Davis Cup, after Dwight Davis’ trophy. By 2015, 125 nations entered what has become the men’s tennis premier international team competition.
