Where the names of the planets came from

Sumerian astronomers named the sun, moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn after their gods. Ancient China named planets after things of nature, like water, fire, or wood. The English names for planets came from the Romans, who named them after their gods and goddesses.

More distant planets were generally titled by the people who found them. They continue with historical trends by naming planets after ancient Greek and Roman gods.

When the dressmaker and client relationship changed

English designer Charles Frederick Worth seems to be the first fashion designer that used models. From the mid-1860s, the house was hiring young women.

The first scheduled passenger flight

The first scheduled passenger airline service took off on Jan 1, 1914. Thomas Benoist designed the "flying boat", the pilot was Tony Jannus, and Abram C. Pheil was the first paying passenger.

The 21-mile (34-kilometre) flight took 23 minutes, flying from St. Petersburg to Tampa, Fla. The plane flew no higher than 50 feet (15.2 m) over the water. Halfway, the engine misfired, and Jannus touched down in the bay, made adjustments and took off again. When the plane landed, they were swarmed by a cheering crowd of about 3,500.

The Advancement of Technology in the Labor Division

The World Economic Forum released a report that gave an estimate of 85 million jobs will be displaced by the year 2025, between humans and machines. However, this is not to scare us.

Being Better Than Yesterday

Accepting reality is hard, but it's important to acknowledge and accept who we are and where we are in life.

While we try to get in shape, be better organized or more productive, we get overwhelmed with the sheer number of things that must be done, as there is so much to be done at all times. We end up competing with others and with our younger self, and fail to realize that we just have to be a better person than we were yesterday.
