October 20, 1906 - American Institute, U.S.A.
Dr. Lee DeForest (26 Aug 1873 - 30 Jun 1961), one of the â€œfathers of radio,'' announced his three-element electrical vacuum tube (now known as a triode) to a meeting of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers He had discovered that when a mesh, or grid, of wire was placed between the filament and collector â€œplateâ€ in a diode tube (first made by J. Ambrose Fleming, 1904), a large voltage-amplifying effect could be produced. DeForest patented this vacuum tube on 15 Jan 1907. The ability of this tube to amplifiy weak signals was an invention as great as radio itself, because it made long-distance communication possible.

A new electrical machine with a mechanical mind has been perfected at Massachusetts Institute of Technology / MIT by Professor Vannevar Bush which can solve problems to complex for human engineers. The Product a differential analyser allows the mathematician or engineer to feed in the equation and parts of the problem which cannot be solved by formal mathematics. The machine can take from 8 minutes to several hours to provide the answer which man alone can not solve today.
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.

by Thomas Jefferson

about Stolen On New Year's
More vehicles are stolen on New Year's Day than any other holiday throughout the year. (So does that mean thieves are having their last fling before changing their ways or are they trying for a big score to start the New Year?)
