August 28, 1837 - Worcester, England
Pharmacists John Lea and William Perrins of Worcester, England began the manufacture of Worcester Sauce. Its origin was accidental. The two Worcestershire chemists (pharmacists) who's names are on the bottle were asked to make a sauce using a recipe Lord Marcus Sandys, governor of Bengal, had brought from India. The result had a harsh, unpalatable taste. The batch was stored in their cellar, forgotten for a year. At that time, after an aging process, a chance tasting for the sauce was now tasty. Upon selling the new savory sauce,they found a sustained demand, and by 1843 they sold 14,500 per year. The exact ingredients remain a trade secret, but are known to include molasses, tamarins, onions, cloves, chillies and shallots from various countries around the world.
"I HAVE A DREAM SPEECH"
August 28, 1963 - United States
More than 200,000 people gather for a peaceful civil rights rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, and Martin Luther King, Jr. makes one of the most well known and quoted speeches in Modern Day History saying the immortal words "I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character" to the peaceful demonstrators black and white, poor and rich who had came together in the nation's capital to demand voting rights and equal opportunity for African Americans and to appeal for an end to racial segregation and discrimination. In October 1964, Martin Luther King, Jr., was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. On April 4th, 1968, he was shot to death while standing on a motel balcony in Memphis, Tennessee.
The Flag of the United States
by Woodrow Wilson
"..."The flag of the United States has not been created by rhetorical sentences in declarations of independence and in bills of rights. It has been created by the experience of a great people, and nothing is written upon it that has not been written by their life. It is the embodiment, not of a sentiment, but of a history."..."
by John Adams
"...The Revolution was effected before the War commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments of their duties and obligations. This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people, was the real American Revolution...."
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'at 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 arena't ours. As with any individual, our world is unique, and precious, and wonderful. Leta's keep it that way.
