    STREET GAS LIGHTS
    January 28, 1807 - London's Pall Mall

    London's Pall Mall became the first street of any city to be illuminated by gaslight. By 1823 nearly 40,000 lamps had been installed in 215 miles of London streets. Earlier, in 1804, Frederick Albert Windsor, a German entrepreneur, demonstrated and lectured on gas light at the Lyceum Theatre in London. His main interest in gas was for street lighting. Windsor acquired a house in Pall Mall, London and on 4 Jun 1807, the King's birthday, he exhibited lights and a gas-lit transparency along the walls. In 1809-10, Windsor established the first public gas company, The Gas Light and Coke Company, which remained in existence until the company was nationalized in 1948. Other British cities followed London's lead, and installed gas street lamps. For example, Glasgow, Scotland, lit their first on 5 Sep 1818.

It was designed by the Babcock and Wilcox Co., and built at a cost of $100 million on the site of a former amusement park. Its pressurized water reactor produced 275,000 kW of power for part of the New York metropolitan area. The Indian Point 1 operating license was dated 26 Mar 1962. It began generating power on 16 Sep 1962. It was shut down on 31 Oct 1974.because it lacked an emergency cooling system for the reactor core.

  • A Change is Gonna Come
    by Meredith Grey

    "...Change; we don't like it, we fear it, but we can't stop it from coming. We either adapt to change, or we get left behind. It hurts to grow, anybody who tells you it doesn't is lying. But here's the truth: Sometimes the more things change, the more they stay the same. And sometimes, oh, sometimes change is good. Sometimes change is everything...."
  • All of us have a God in us
    by Earth Day, Kenya

    "...All of us have a God in us, and that God is the spirit that unites all life, everything that is on this planet. It must be this voice that is telling me to do something, and I am sure it'as the same voice that is speaking to everybody on this planet at least everybody who seems to be concerned about the fate of the world, the fate of this planet. Wangari Maathai-Noble Peace prize winner, Deputy Minister of Environment, founder Green Belt movement in Kenya...."
