He invented a new way to shave and claimed to have a better improved sharpener

To honor his work, his name was given to the man who also calculated the age of the Earth – Kelvin

William Thomson was a British mathematical physicist and engineer was a British mathematical physicist and engineer. At the University of Glasgow he did important work in the mathematical analysis of electricity and formulation of the first and second laws of thermodynamics, and did much to unify the emerging discipline of physics in its modern form. He also had a career as an electric telegraph engineer and inventor, which propelled him into the public eye and ensured his wealth, fame and honour.
Absolute temperatures are stated in units of kelvin in his honour. While the existence of a lower limit to temperature (absolute zero) was known prior to his work, Lord Kelvin is widely known for determining its correct value as approximately −273.15 degree Celsius or −459.67 degree Fahrenheit.
He developed a complete system for operating a submarine telegraph that was capable of sending a character every 3.5 seconds. He patented the key elements of his system, the mirror galvanometer and the siphon recorder, in 1858. Over the period 1855 to 1867, he collaborated with Peter Guthrie Tait on a text book that founded the study of mechanics first on the mathematics of kinematics, the description of motion without regard to force.

This voice actor and ventriloquist won accolades in media and patented first artificial heart

downloadPaul Winchell (December 21, 1922 – June 24, 2005) was an American ventriloquist, comedian, actor, voice actor, humanitarian and inventor. Winchell became the first person to build and patent a mechanical artificial heart, implantable in the chest cavity (US Patent #3097366). He has been honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his work in television.

Winchell was born Paul Wilchinsky in New York City on December 21, 1922 to Solomon Wilchinsky and Clara Fuchs. His father was a tailor. Winchell’s initial ambition was to become a doctor, but the Depression wiped out any chance of his family’s ability to afford medical school tuition.
Winchell accepted and became a professional at age 14.
Winchell’s first show as a ventriloquist was on radio with Jerry Mahoney in 1943. Winchell’s best-known ventriloquist dummies were Jerry Mahoney and Knucklehead Smiff.
Winchell developed over 30 patents in his lifetime. He invented an artificial heart with the assistance of Dr. Henry Heimlich, the inventor of the Heimlich Maneuver.
For Disney, Winchell was best known for voicing the character Tigger in Disney’s Winnie-the-Pooh films, and won a Grammy Award for his performance in Winnie the Pooh and Tigger Too.

This founder of modern bacteriology who formulated FOUR POSTULATES had taught himself to read & write!!!

Robert Heinrich Herman Koch (11 December 1843 – 27 May 1910) was a celebrated German physician and pioneering microbiologist. The founder of modern bacteriology, he is known for his role in identifying the specific causative agents of tuberculosis, cholera, and anthrax and for giving experimental support for the concept of infectious disease. For his groundbreaking research on tuberculosis, Koch received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1905.

A shoemaker’s apprentice who invented electromagnet, electrometer & a galvanometer

William Sturgeon (22 May 1783 – 4 December 1850) was an English physicist and inventor who made the first electromagnets, and invented the first practical English electric motor. Sturgeon was born in Whittington, near Carnforth, Lancashire, and apprenticed to a shoemaker. He joined the army in 1802 and taught himself mathematics and physics.
An electromagnet is a type of magnet in which the magnetic field is produced by electric current.
An electric motor is an electric machine that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy.
A galvanometer is a type of sensitive ammeter: an instrument for detecting electric current.

Celebrating the Preservatives of the culture, system and eternity: Happy International Museum day!!!

International Museum Day (IMD) is a celebration that held every year on or around 18 May, coordinated by the International Council of Museums (ICOM). Since 1977, ICOM has organises International Museum Day (IMD), which represents a unique moment for the international museum community. On this day, participating museums plan creative events and activities related to the International Museum Day theme, engage with their public and highlight the importance of the role of museums as institutions that serve society and its development.
In 2015, the event will celebrate the theme: Museums for a sustainable society.
One of the most important contemporary challenges shared by people all over the world is to adapt new ways of living and developing within the limits of nature. This transition towards a sustainable society requires inventing new methods of thinking and acting. Museums play a key role in this transition, promoting sustainable development and serving as real laboratories for best practices. Modern museums must take a strong position in this context and make their voices heard.
The theme Museums for a sustainable society recognises the role of museums in raising public awareness about the need for a society that is less wasteful, more cooperative and uses resources in a way that respects living systems.
Bringing museums to the forefront of this model of a sustainable society, the International Museum Day theme aims to foster awareness among the whole society about the current consequences of human action in our planet and the absolute necessity of changing its economic and social model.
