What does the difference does 'one' make?? Well, if your Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Eli Whitney, John Deere, George Westinghouse, Benjamin Franklin., it made all the difference in the world. Because if they had listened to everyone around them and had given up instead of trying 'ONE' more time, we might not have the light bulb, the telephone, the Cotton Gin, the farm tractor, household appliances, or electricity as we know it. It's because someone believed in themselves when no one else believed in them that they succeeded. So, when someone asks you what difference does 'one' make, or what difference you can make., just remember that YOU can make all the difference in the world! But I said all that to say this., how much difference does 'one' really make??? It means the difference between Heaven and *** Because if the One, the Creator, the Lily of the Valley, the Bright and Morning Star, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, the ONE that we call Jesus hadn't came to this world and di ...
We hope this research will result in a new reference book for: The Revolvers of Eli Whitney, Jr. 1850 - 1879 Eli Whitney, Jr. assumed control of his father's armory in 1841. The Whitney Arms Company manufactured muskets for the Government and would continue to do so during the War Between the States. Whitney's first opportunity to become involved with the manufacture of handguns occurred in 1847, when Sam Colt received a contract for 1,000 revolvers during the War with Mexico. Colt had closed his plant in Paterson, New Jersey in 1843, due to economic conditions and loss of payments for his Paterson revolvers during the Seminole War. Whitney and Colt partnered for the manufacture of the Colt Walker revolver, at the Whitneyville armory. That venture helped Colt get back into the firearms business, and helped prepare Whitney to begin manufacturing his first handguns around 1850. Colt retained a patent on his revolving mechanism, which caused Whitney and other manufacturers to develop other methods of " ...
Mechanical Television Ulises Armand Sanabria An unusual item from Sanabria Sanabria Theatre Television Sanabria memorabilia and photos The following is from Peter Yanczer: Ulises Sanabria (1906-1969) Ulises Sanabria was born in southern Chicago on September 5, 1906. His parents were American and his grandparents were Spanish. He was raised and schooled in the Chicago area. He often said of his ancestry that it was so extremely mixed that he could best be described as "typically American". He was educated in the local Chicago schools and his "heroes" were Ericsson, Eli Whitney, Robert Fulton, Alexander Bell, Samuel Morse and most of all, Thomas Edison. He looked on Lee deForest as his contemporary, who was a generation ahead. Most of all, he wanted to be an inventor and do something big and important. He selected television, without the slightest idea of how he was going to go about it. When he was 15 years old, he told his one and only girl friend of high school days, that he was going to invent televisio ...
Eli Whitney Blake, Jr. (April 20, 1836 – Jan 10, 1895) American scientist. His father and namesake was an inventor and partner of the Blake Brothers manufacturing firm. The origin of the name Eli Whitney comes from Blake senior's uncle Eli Whitney, who changed the face of the cotton industry with the invention of the Cotton Gin. Blake graduated from Yale in 1857, after which he spent a year at Sheffield Scientific School. He was a member of Skull and Bones, class of 1857. Following his time at Sheffield, he traveled to Europe, where he studied chemistry and physics in the universities of Heidelberg, Marburg, and Berlin. On his return to America, he was made professor of chemistry and physics at the University of Vermont (1867). After less than a year, he went to Cornell University, where he was professor of physics and mechanic arts (1868–1870). During this time he also acted temporarily as professor of physics at Columbia College (1868–1869). From 1870 to 1895, he filled the chair of physics at Br ...

February is Black History Month of the cotton industry, 1793 In the years immediately following the Revolutionary War, the rural South–the region where slavery had taken the strongest hold in North America–faced an economic crisis. The soil used to grow tobacco, then the leading cash crop, was exhausted, while products such as rice and indigo failed to generate much profit. As a result, the price of slaves was dropping, and the continued growth of slavery seemed in doubt. Around the same time, the mechanization of spinning and weaving had revolutionized the textile industry in England, and the demand for American cotton soon became insatiable. Production was limited, however, by the laborious process of removing the seeds from raw cotton fibers, which had to be completed by hand. In 1793, a young Yankee schoolteacher named Eli Whitney came up with a solution to the problem: The Cotton Gin, a simple mechanized device that efficiently removed the seeds, could be hand-powered or, on a large scale, harnes ...

History of Big Island Pond in New Hampshire Big Island Pond is a 532 acre lake located in the towns of Derry, Hampstead and Atkinson New Hampshire.The lake has a long and varied history going back to the aboriginal peoples and the possible settlement nearby of Irish Culdee monks over 1,000 years ago. Chief Escumbuit’s life from 1665-1727 intertwines with the history of the Big Island Pond. Into the twentieth century there was even a brothel located near the pond called “Laverne’s Place.” All of the interesting history is available in the book “Legends of the Pond, Stories of Big Island Pond, Atkinson, Derry and Hampstead” by Alfred E. Kayworth. Mr. Kayworth’s book gives a fascinating look at the pond and the people who have lived nearby.

The US Civil War lasted from 1861 to 1865 and led to over 618,000 casualties. Its causes can be traced back to tensions that formed early in the nation's history. Following are the top five causes that led to the "War Between the States." 1. Economic and social differences between the North and the South. With Eli Whitney's invention of the Cotton Gin in 1793, cotton became very profitable. This machine was able to reduce the time it took to separate seeds from the cotton. However, at the same time the increase in the number of plantations willing to move from other crops to cotton meant the greater need for a large amount of cheap labor, i.e. slaves. Thus, the southern economy became a one crop economy, depending on cotton and therefore on slavery. On the other hand, the northern economy was based more on industry than agriculture. In fact, the northern industries were purchasing the raw cotton and turning it into finished goods. This disparity between the two set up a major difference in economic attitu ...

Eli Whitney Died 8 Jan 1825 at age 59 (born 8 Dec 1765). American inventor, mechanical engineer, and manufacturer, who invented the Cotton Gin and developed the idea and methods for mass-production of interchangeable parts. The Cotton Gin is a machine that separates cotton fibre from the seeds. The device, patented in 1793, greatly stimulated cotton growing in the southern USA. Whitney subsequently turned to firearms manufacture, into which he introduced the notion of interchangeable parts. This he applied in his fulfilment of a US government contract (1797) to supply muskets. Whitney manufactured these in standardized parts for reassembly, meaning that for the first time worn parts could be replaced by spares rather than requiring special replacements to be made
On this date in 1825, inventor Eli Whitney died. Ironically, he was drinking gin with a fellow named Cotton.

1847 – Samuel Colt rescues the future of his faltering gun company by winning a contract to provide the U.S. government with 1,000 of his .44 caliber revolvers. Before Colt began mass-producing his popular revolvers in 1847, handguns had not played a significant role in the history of either the American West or the nation as a whole. Expensive and inaccurate, short-barreled handguns were impractical for the majority of Americans, though a handful of elite still insisted on using dueling pistols to solve disputes in highly formalized combat. When choosing a practical weapon for self-defense and close-quarter fighting, most Americans preferred knives, and western pioneers especially favored the deadly and versatile Bowie knife. That began to change when Samuel Colt patented his percussion-repeating revolver in 1836. The heart of Colt’s invention was a mechanism that combined a single rifled barrel with a revolving chamber that held five or six shots. When the weapon was cocked for firing, the chamber r ...

SPOTLIGHT December 8 Answer of the Day When did NFL players start to wear helmets? The last time a National Football League team member played without a helmet was during the 1940 NFL Championship Game. Chicago Bears' end *** Plasman hardly needed to cover his head. His team beat the rival Washington Redskins, 73-0, in the most lopsided game in NFL history, on December 8, 1940. It was a home game for the 'Skins, who had beat the Bears, 7-3, just three weeks earlier. When the Bears decided to get even, they pulled out all the stops. Late in the game, officials begged Bears coach George Halas not to kick for extra points; they were running out of footballs, since so many had flown through the uprights into the crowd. Quote "I think you're a great football team, the greatest ever assembled. Go out on the field and prove it." — George Halas, to his team before the big game Word of the day lacustrine (luh-KUS-trin) adjective 1. Of or relating to lakes. 2.

Cotton was first domesticated in India, but was expensive until Eli Whitney invented the Cotton Gin in the early 1800’s.
". . . more slaughter, more misery, and more ruin than has ever before been borne within the compass of a ship." Winston Churchill was referring to the German warships, SMS Goeben and SMS Breslau, that eluded a British naval pursuit in the Mediterranean Sea at the outbreak of World War I. The German ships would eventually reach Constantinople, where their arrival would serve as a catalyst for the entry of the Ottoman Empire into the conflict on the side of Germany and her allies. As I gazed at the innocuous-looking box with the handle on the side, Churchill's words popped-into my head. He could very well have been describing Eli Whitney's transformative invention. This is from Wikipedia: "Whitney is most famous for two innovations which later divided the United States in the mid-19th century: the Cotton Gin (1793) and his advocacy of interchangeable parts. In the South, the Cotton Gin revolutionized the way cotton was harvested and reinvigorated slavery. In the North the adoption of interchangeable parts ...

Hispanic Heritage month? *** is this all about? I completely believe black history month is waste of effort in our current society. Maybe 10-20 years ago it was beneficial but at least that month is about celebrating the betterment of America. Hispanic Heritage month is laughable. Where is Scottish Heritage Month? Did anybody actually know it's in April? German heritage month is October along with Muslim heritage month, and there is no such thing as English, Christian, and Atheist Heritage months. I normally wouldn't care, but it is really getting out of hand. I am at least 15th generation born American on the father's side, and at least 5th on my mother's side but I still want my heritage celebrated. Plus what in the *** is a religion being celebrated for? Judaism is May, Islam is October and I just want to make sure that my Scottish, Cherokee, German, and whatever in *** else I am is celebrated as well as my religion so I can celebrate my differences from other white people who follow a mono-theistic .. ...
Finding the Right Mental Attitude for Success Attitude isn't quite everything when it comes to being successful, but attitude plays a part in virtually every phase of your life. A poor attitude gets more people fired than any other single factor, and a good attitude gets people jobs and helps them keep those jobs more than any other factor. Your attitude affects many people, from your family to the stranger you smile at on the street corner. Your attitude is particularly important when you face seemingly hopeless situations. Losing a job, mate, or friend because of a lousy attitude is unfortunate — especially because a bad attitude can be fixed. Choose optimism over pessimism You can find at least two ways to look at virtually everything. A pessimist looks for difficulty in the opportunity, whereas an optimist looks for opportunity in the difficulty. A poet of long ago put the difference between optimism and pessimism this way: "Two men looked out from prison bars — one saw mud, the other saw stars." ...

PASTOR OF THE INDEPENDENT CHURCH OF LONDON IMMIGRANT, 1634 FOUNDER OF BARNSTABLE, MA, 1639 Rev. John and his followers were subjected to religious persecution in England, including arrest and imprisonment in 1632. Lothrop was released in 1634 and ordered to leave the country. He arrived in Boston on Sept. 18, 1634, on the ship "Griffin," settling with his followers first in Scituate, then moving to Barnstable on Cape Cod. There, he established the West Parish Church, the oldest standing Congregational Church in America. Today, Rev. John Lothrop's Bible is on display in the Sturgis Library in Barnstable, Massachusetts.

Having choice in the foods we feed to our families is important to all of us. The first panel of the Food Dialogues this morning will focus on choice, including organic and conventionally grown foods, as well as the use of science and biotechnology in food production. Alex Hitt an organic farmer from Peregrine Farm in Eli Whitney, NC, said “When we started our small farming operation more than 30 years ago, words like organic and sustainable were barely known. Over the years, we have worked to define what those words mean and then implement the practices that best support those goals.”

Denim Fact of the Day: Eli Whitney only invented the superior version of the Cotton Gin in 1792 after noticing long-staple cotton (Sea Island) differed greatly from short-staple cotton (upland), and required much more labor to remove the green cotton seeds while visiting Mrs. Greene's plantation in South Carolina. The very Mrs. Greene that I speak of just so happened to be the widow of a great Revolutionary War General for the United States of America by the name of Nathaniel Greene. Greensboro remains connected to the cotton industry more than we can ever know.

The following is my response to the school system : FROM: RICHARD SIMLICK, ENFIELD CT, Respectfully, To whom it may concern, *I am writing in regards to an incident I am just learning about that occurred today on the bus home from school today. “Zach”, who is a fourth grader from Eli Whitney and almost a foot taller than my second grade son, spit in his face and stabbed him with a pen on the arm. My wife got my son, David Simlick, off the bus and informed the driver of the pen mark and the dried spit on his glasses from “Zach”. David goes to Hazardville Memorial School.

I try not to call successful Black people Uncle Tom's because everyone has a right to move into a better neighborhood and better themselves. But Orprah Winfrey has crossed the line and shown that she is one of the biggest sellouts to Black people. I already hated that she pushed the movie Precious on the public and embarrassed all Black people with that trash. Now this heffer is producing a movie called THE BUTLER about a *** butler that works for the President during the civil rights movement. And this fool is being played by Forrest Whitaker who hasn't made a good movie forever, and one of his fellow Uncle Tom butlers is Cuba Gooding jr. Who has also made some questionable movies about racially sensitive subjects. I mean really Oprah do we need a civil rights movie about a butler, whats next the shoe shine man? Why not produce a movie about Eli Whitney, George Washington Carver, or Fredrick Douglas. Or how about Huey Newton and Black Panther party movement that shows the positive role they play ...
