The Clock On The Wall

th_BenjaminBanneker1Benjamin Banneker

 

Benjamin was the creator of the first clock in America. Benjamin borrowed a pocket watch from a wealthy friend. He studied the watch and later created a clock carved from wood. Benjamin was the son of former slaves, a farmer. mathematician, astronomer, author and land surveyor.

 

There are things we may see. If we use our creativity we can make it more innovative &/or with the economy, how can I make it more affordable? All it takes is an idea & creativity and we to can be the next inventor. What have you seen & thought was a good idea? You may have purchased something from the store and it wasn’t the right color? Some times all it’ll take is a can of spray paint.   Look at the clock on the wall, how can you make your time more valuable?

A better understanding….

bio_alcornGeorge Edward Alcorn Jr.

 
Invented the Imaging X-Ray Spectrometer. George Edward Alcorn created over 20 different inventions & was granted 8 patents. The imaging machine allows scientist to understand what materials are made of when they can’t be broken down.

I’m always fascinated by chemist and scientist because they have such determination & perseverance.  Since working in the hair care industry I get to see that first hand.  Just to think the things we use on a daily basis, some one was determined and worked hard to make it a success.

Out of this world

Mae C. Jemison

1956-

 

Mae C. Jemison is an Astronaut and Physician.  Reading her biography there were some really cool things I found out.  First her and my youngest daughter have the same birthday.  She was also a Chicagoan like myself after moving here when she was 3 yrs old.  Her family moved here to take advantage of the educational system. 

I remember oh so well of the day she went into space on the Endeavor, On September 12, 1992. (I was 20 yrs old)  Prior to her space venture in 1987, Jemison was the first African American woman ever admitted into the astronaut training program.   Jemison believed that woman and other minority groups had a lot to contribute if given the chance to do so. 

I consider Mae Jemison courageous and an exceptional role model to woman and the minority community.  Her perseverance shows us that, if we believe, we can fly.
