    ONE-WAY STREETS
    August 23, 1617 - London

    The first one-way streets were established in London. An Act of Common Council was passed to regulate the "disorder and rude behaviour of Carmen, Draymen and others using Cartes." Seventeen narrow and congested lanes were specified. They ran into Thames Street, including Pudding Lane (where the Great Fire of London began in 1667). "No Carter or Carman to come into Thames Street by Saint Magnus Corner Eastward with his Carr before he is hired under penalty of 2s. 6d. for the 1st offence, 5s. for the 2nd and to be disabled from using a Carr." and "For avoiding the great numbers of Carrs which come out of ...As late as 1755, the Christ's Hospital Carmen's Committee fined seven carmen 5s. each for violations. The traffic regulation continued for two centuries.

    SHIP-TO-SHORE WIRELESS
    August 23, 1899 - San Francisco USA

    The first ship-to-shore wireless message to be received in the U.S was: "Sherman is sighted." U.S. Lightship No. 70, San Francisco, announced the arrival of the U.S. Army troopship Sherman to the crowd assembled at the Cliff House. Reporters there from the San Francisco Call, who relayed this information to a city awaiting the return of its hometown regiment from the battlefields of the Spanish-American War. The lightship, miles out at sea in deep fog, relayed this message via wireless telegraphy (later known as radio) through the fog to the Cliff House. This was the first 19th-century working use of wireless telegraphy outside of England. The method was still primitive, using sparks to emit intermittent radio waves and code messages.

RANDOM FACTS

  • The White House
    about Valerie Jarrett

    The White House has been on the defensive recently over its claim, repeated numerous times over the years, that under President Barack Obama’s health care law, if you like your health plan, you can keep it. White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett tweeted that "nothing in Obamacare forces people out of their health plans." We checked to see if that's right. The Earth is the only place
    about Earth Day

    The Earth is the only place in the entire Universe where we know that life exists. But that won’t be true forever. To us, our Earth seems huge, solid, tailor-made for us, and permanent. But that is just one perspective, born of living on its surface. From a different perspective, none of those things is true. Seen from space, it looks much less unbreakable. Seen from deep space, it shrinks to nothing more than a dot, barely visible in the reflected light of the Sun. From another star, even seeing our planet at all would be a colossal task. We are, after a monumental effort spanning decades, only just now finding other planets orbiting other stars. Are any like Earth? Almost certainly, and in fact there may be billions of planets like ours orbiting alien stars. But while they are like ours, they aren’t ours. As with any individual, our world is unique, and precious, and wonderful. Let’s keep it that way.
