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.

We discuss none other than Charles Goodyear who came out with a patent for vulcanized rubber and later built the first rubber soccer ball, as previous generations of players had to play with pig bladders and wine bottles. So by Charles introducing the rubber soccer ball to the world it made it a lot easier to play the game and wasn’t so hard on the feet. All the boys and girls and men and women of the world who go out daily to dribble and practice goals can say thank you to Mr. Charles. As by Mr. Charles making the ball out of rubber the pain of the kicking the ball all day is lesser and the ball is also lighter but sturdier. So the ball can be kicked and kicked and kicked for hours on end and used over and over again without a hiccup….and for that we take our hats off to Mr. Goodyear and his invention of the rubber soccer ball.

So the next person on my list of people who have contributed to society…is none other than……John Brown. Mr. Brown lived at a time when people talked, and talked, and talked, and after talking, talked some more about the abolition of slavery. Mr. Brown took action and put his money where his mouth is…and unknowingly sparked the start of the civil war which eventually led to the slaves being free. Mr. Brown’s contribution to society is that all the millions and millions of free slaves now…owe their freedom to men like John Brown…who stood up for the truth in spite of the social pressure to be otherwise….he is understood by some to be a madmen yes, but the only way the south was going to give up the slaves was by force…as slavery had become a lifestyle and one of the major economic factors for wealthy slave owners…..no pay….free labor……hell yeah…sounds like a deal…….so thank you Mr. Brown….for your contribution to society.

Patek Philippe was inventor or credited inventor who developed the wrist watch…..he made the watch for  Countess Koscowicz of Hungary. I say that is contribution was great to society in that he helped spread the use of time…and made it easier for people to know what time it was…….during this time period men were scared to where a wristwatch as mostly women were wristwatches and men used hand clocks or clocks that required two hands. As a result of making the watches for royalty other people wanted to wear these wristwatches as well…..and helped spur a new wristwatch movement as others competed with him in regards to wristwatch making he also raised the standard really high for watches…which caused people to have a higher standard in regards to what is and isn’t acceptable in regards to a functioning wrist watch……so thank you Mr. Philippe.

So the next person on my list of people who have contributed greatly to society is none other than Earl Nightingale. Mr Nightingale is a motivational speaker that talks about mindset, attitude, and your ability to achieve things. Mr. Nightingale was on the USS Arizona when it was attacked in Pearl Harbor. He was one of the 12 surviving marines. In regards to contributions Earl has given over 7,000 radio programs, 250 audio programs and hundreds of other television and video programs. If you listen to an Earl Nightingale tape you’ll see what I mean. He talks about self motivation to philosophy and American History to job performance and service. Earl has unknowningly contributed to society my without being here encouraging all the go getters of the world to push themselves to the level they are capable of becoming. Many organizations and sound employees have been crafted by listening to the words of Earl Nightingale. Thanks again Mr. Nightingale. Read  more about the history of Earl Nightingale.

The next person on the list of people who have contributed to society is John Boyd Dunlop. Mr. Dunlop had a son who would get headaches whenever he rode his bike on rough roads. So Mr. Dunlop went to work and came up with the idea to put a rubber tube around the wood wheel of his son’s bike. He tweaked the tire until it rolled with no problem. Mr. Dunlop applied for a patent on the tire and was initially granted the patent but later taken away after it was discovered someone had drawn and patented the idea. But that doesn’t take away from Mr. Dunlop’s idea or contribution…as the fact that he physically made the product helped all of us. We can now ride smoothly and independently on roads, hills, and all types of surfaces because of the tire. Thank you Mr. Dunlop.

Clara Barton traveled overseas and was doing humanitarian work and decided to bring the Red Cross to the U.S. Clara Barton responded to the first two majors U.S disasters the Thumb fire and Johnstown Flood. So Clara after those disasters instead of having random people helping had an organization that was organized and able to give people Hope when they needed it the most. How many times not only here but in the world has the red cross shown up to help people with water, clothes, food and money. Plus the red cross that collects blood saves a lot of lives through blood transplants and what not……so thanks again Clara…read more about Clara’s contribution to society here….Click the link.
