He was wounded twice; he was badly gassed four weeks before the end of the war and spent three months recuperating in a hospital in Pomeranian. Furious at Germany's surrender, Hitler returned to Munich after the end of World War I, determined to enter politics. After this Hitler became the leader of Germany for twelve years which caused the death of millions of people. They called him Der Fu... ... middle of paper ... ...tler himself was Jewish; they think his grandfather might have been a Jew and he just did not know! On April 29th, 1945, Hitler married his long-time mistress, Eva Braun.
His father was a Serbian Orthodox clergyman. He had three younger sisters and one older brother. His older brother died tragically in a horse riding accident, leaving young Nikola Tesla grief stricken from his lost loved one. Throughout the rest of his childhood, Tesla was interested in how things worked as well as in physics and mathematics. Later he went on to study at the University of Prague, and at the Polytechnic Institute in Graz, Austria.
Adolf’s father was fifty-one when he had him, and died when Adolf was only thirteen. Adolfs mom, Klara had died of breast cancer in 1908 (Early Years). After living in Braunau, the Hitler family decided to move to Linz in 1898 which is also the capital of upper Austria. Adolf, being interested in art wanted to pursue a career in visual arts, but his father fought with him often because he wanted Adolf to enter the Habsburg civil services. After his father died his mother, Klara Hitler agreed to let Adolf take on his dream of being an artist and go into a visual arts class using the money inherited from his fathers death.
Nikola Tesla Few people recognize his name today, and even among those who do, the words Nikola Tesla are likly to summon up the image of a crackpot rather than an authentic scientist. Nikola Tesla was possibly the greatest inventor the world has ever known. He was, without doubt, a genius who is not only credited with many devices we use today, but is also credited with astonishing, sometimes world-transforming, devices that are even simply amazing by todays scientific standards. Tesla was born at precisely midnight between July 9th and 10th, 1856, in a small Hungarien village. He was born to his father, a priest, and his mother, an unschooled but extremely intelligent women.
After several unsuccessful jobs with German and French electrical power companies where he tried to improve their DC generators, 29-year-old Tesla came to New York City with four cents in his pocket. Nikola went to Thomas Edison with a letter of recommendation from a business associate of Edison's that read, "My Dear Edison: I k... ... middle of paper ... ...aimed that he had perfected his "death beam". He died shortly after in the Hotel New Yorker, where he had been living. The next morning after Tesla died, when his nephew came to his uncle's room at the hotel, the body was gone and many of his papers were missing. Naturally, if Tesla indeed had invented anything that had to do with weaponry, the FBI would be interested.
Fame Isn’t Everything “Who do you think is the greatest inventor to ever walk on the earth?” If a group of people were to be asked this question the responses would surely be predictable; Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs, Samuel F.B. Morse, or the obvious Thomas Edison. However, if this group knew the life and contributions of Serbian- American scientist and inventor, Nikola Tesla, all of their answers would surely change. You may not be able to say that “Tesla” is a house hold name, on the other hand, his idea and contributions to technology continue to exist in our households themselves. Despite his lack of funds, Tesla managed nearly three hundred patents.
Later his alternating current induction motor would be considered one of the ten greatest discoveries of all time. Before coming to America, Tesla joined the Continental Edison Company in Paris where he designed. In February 1882, Tesla discovered the rotating magnetic field, an important principle in physics and it was also the start to pretty much all devices that use alternating current. In 1883, he secretly built a prototype of the induction motor which he was able to run successfully. Nobody in Europe cared about promoting his unqualified device, Tesla then accepted an offer to work for Thomas Edison in New York.
They settled in Braintree in 1968 and Seth was born later in the year (Keefe, 2013). Amy was an asthmatic and she was sent to the emergency room often which is what led her to her passion of science. In school Bishop played the violin and her brother asked if he could play also. The two of them seemed to have a sibling rivalry and Amy was very competitive. In 1985, the Bishop’s home was burglarized and robbed, which led her father to purchase a gun, which Amy and her mom objective; but her father always kept the gun empty (Keefe, 2013).
Tesla was born in Smilijan, Croatia on July 10, 1856 to a priest and housewife/inventor. At the start of his education he immediately became a passionate student due to his older brother, who was thought to be a genius. However when Tesla was five years of age his brother died in a horsing accident, which he witnessed with his own eyes. After the incident Tesla often felt that his parents thought his success was nothing compared to his late brother, causing Nikola to have low self confidence at very young age. During Telsa’s teenage years, he became passionate about mathematics and science, and was set on becoming an engineer.
When he was nine years old he had is first epilepsy spell, a first they weren’t for sure what it was but later found out what it was. (Fyodor Dostoevsky Biography) In 1837 his mother passed away, he wanted to start writing but his father wanted him to join the Army engineering school and he was sent to St. Petersburg where he joined the army engineering college to please his father. In 1839 his father was murdered in his home by his serfs that same year Dostoevsky graduated from engineering school but resigned and decided to dedicate himself to literature. (The Literature Network) When he started his writing career, Dostoevsky found out that he had epilepsy, with his condition he did not let it bother him, it only added to the emotion and depth in his pieces. Between 1871 and 1881he traveled to Western Europe in search of treatment for his epilepsy.
