After building his first working telephone model, Bell's fame spread quickly as people in America and around the world began to realize the awesome potential this wonderfully fascinating new device held in store for society (Brinkley 481). His telephone an instant success and already a burgeoning industry, A. G. Bell decided to turn his attention back to assisting the deaf and following other creative ideas including the development of a metal detector, an electric probe which was used by many surgeons before the X ray was invented, a device having the same purpose as today's iron lung, and also a method of locating icebergs by detecting echoes from them. With his many inventions (especially the insanely popular and universally applied telephone), his efforts to educate the deaf, and the founding and financing of the American Association to Promote the Teaching of Speech to the Deaf (now called the Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf), Alexander Graham Bell has become a very important historical figure indeed (Berstein 9). Perhaps a key factor in Bell's successful life was his invigorating background. His family and his education definitely had a deep influence on his career.
Inventing Solutions Daniel Singh Engineering and the Profession Dr. Leo Oriet Friday, October 31, 2014 Singh 2 There have been many inventions throughout the centuries that benefit mankind in terms of comfort, speed, efficiency, and reliability. Whether it is the creation of wood and stone weapons in the Stone Age or a device that transmits thoughts to other people in the future, inventions are made to serve people. One man in particular, Thomas Edison, revolutionized the world we live in with his many inventions. Through his success and failures, Edison was able to successfully create inventions to better the human race. By working with DC current, creating multiple inventions, and obtaining patents, Thomas Edison can be seen as the greatest inventor in the world.
In 1928 Thomas Alva Edison was awarded congressional medal of honor. This award was given to him because of the practical and imaginative talent he used to life easer for the people of the United States (Dolan 109). Thomas Alva Edison was considered one of the greatest inventors and industrial leader. He had over 1000 inventions but none greater then his ability to develop a system that would provide people with a wide safe stable and efficient light and power. This also lead to other countries such as Europe and South America to follow this wonderful invention that modernized the world forever.
Those inventions bring great influences around the world; also his inventions improve the society. During Thomas Edison’s entire life, he created more than 2000 inventions as well he acquired 1093 patents in the Untied States. Also Thomas Edison became a successful businessman. He manufactures his inventions and selling them to the markets. Thomas Edison’s father was Samuel Ogden Edison.
His parents also influenced him in other ways. His father, Paul, was inte... ... middle of paper ... ...fluence the business world through Apple, NeXT, and Pixar. He is significant as are all geniuses in our world. Albert Einstein, Ludwig Van Beethoven, Socrates, Leonardo Da Vinci, and Nikola Tesla are all geniuses because their actions changed the world. They were brilliant, and sometimes crazy men, but their inventions and ideas will stand the test of time.
Edison changed how people were able to live in the time across the world. He “turned the lights on” for inventors across the globe. Thomas Edison honorable for his many inventions and breakthroughs in science. He is also honorable for his addition in the business world. His many awards support the fact that people honored and revered him in many ways.
in cross country i was very nervous but i had to remember the importance of positive attitude. Henry Ford’s words about postive attitude became real to me at that point; the moment the race finished i cheered for i had gotten a medal. i thomas edison 's invention of the lightbulb he feels the simarlar success that comes from positive attitude. Thomas Edisons invention helps the world but took so long to make because he needed a postitve attitude. Because of that, quotes like Henry Ford’s “If you think you can do a thing or think you can 't do a thing, you 're right” will always be relevant.
He also created one of the most credible and generous charitable organization in the world. As a positive influence on today’s world, Bill Gates has proven himself as person with his good work ethic, positive attitude, and great accomplishments. To become one of the most influential people in the world, Gates had to have the work ethic and determination to get there. With great work ethic he started, as a child, with debugging computers for local people in his town (“Gates, William Henry, III” 1). This also started his love for computers, and as he researched and started figuring computers out he became more skillful with them.

Throughout Erwin’s life, he conducted an exponential amount of research, experiments, and scientific discoveries that benefited society (“Stuewer”). Schrödinger’s childhood, scientific contributions, and immense impact on society, as well as the scientific community, explains why many people regard him as an extremely influential man and a prominent scientist. Erwin Schrödinger’s memorable life began in 1887, as the son of Rudolf and Georgine Schrödinger. This was the start of a very important physicist’s childhood. Schrödinger was introduced to the sciences at an early age, being that his father and grandfather studied chemistry (Abbott 145).
