Social Musings 101: Teachers

The one group that I haven’t touched on that contributes a great deal as well in all society is teachers. Teachers (the good ones) selflessly give of themselves to children. They give of their time and supplies and resources to reach as many of their children in the classroom that they can. Teachers do their best to keep the unruly kids under control while delivering new information to the children in class that actually want to learn new material. Although the effectiveness of teachers depends on many different varying variables they still don’t get as many kudos as they should. The pay is sub par as compared to other professions, but in spite of this they press on training the next generation of leaders. So if you have children or are in a meeting or conference and meet a teacher then tell him or her Thank You. That’s all for today everyone. Have a wonderful day.

Social Musings 101

In today’s session of people who have contributed to society……we discuss Seneca the Younger…as early dates put him on as the person who looked thru a glass filled with water and noticed that letters no matter how small could be magnified. It’s this magnification principle that eventually led to other creators coming up with and making eyeglasses. So some of you can’t read this type without glasses or contacts. Others that have had Lasik no longer need them. Well you can think the likes of Seneca and all the others after him who added to this concept and built on it. As a result of his discovery and telling others about it many people that would have been robbed from walking in the wrong area, swindled from not being able to read contracts, didn’t have these things happen. But on a lighter more positive note the same people have been able to fully enjoy the joys of life, seeing flowers bloom, seeing the sunset, seeing beauty in all it’s grandeur and physical form…some experiences can only be fully  felt by experiencing them from all five senses. If you have ever been to a concert or a theater or really been into a movie that you like you can experience this. If  you have ever been really happy or in LOVe and had a experience with your significant  other that involves heavy breathing……LOL….you know what I’m talking about….I think it’s those memories  and experiences that make life worth living and looking forward to…..so for all the creators, inventors, and entrepreneurs involved in the magnification of glasses, or eye glasses, or glass ware. Thank You. Click the links  to learn more about Seneca the Younger and glasses.

People Who Have Contributed to Society……..

People Who Have Contributed to Society…….

Before we start this post I want to take a moment of silence to remember Mr. JFK was assassinated today………..may he rest in peace……….

The person who were are going to discuss today in relation to his contribution to society is none other than Albert L. Marsh. Mr. Marsh  created a metal alloy that could be used as a heating element and could withstand high-resistance  than the metal that was currently being made at the time. This discovery was helpful in the introduction of the electric heater…..now I know some of you are wrapped in a blanket as you’re reading this or in pajamas with the heater going…so if you have an electric heater blowing you can give thanks to Mr. Marsh as he diligently tried out different configurations until one worked.
