Where Did The Miranda Warnings Come From And Who Are The Miranda Rights Named After?

At some point in almost every police movie and TV show, the police read a suspect the “Miranda warnings.”

Image

Suspects are warned they have the right to remain silent, that anything they say can be used against them, that they have the right to an attorney, and that an attorney will be appointed if they cannot afford one.

Image

Image

The ritual reading of these rights stems from a 1963 case in which Ernesto Miranda, an Arizona Hispanic, was convicted of rape based on his confession to the police.

Image

The U.S. Supreme Court threw out the conviction, saying that Miranda’s confession could not be used against him because he had not been informed of his rights. Since then, police have been careful to inform suspects of their Miranda rights.

Image

As for Miranda, he was retried and convicted again based on different evidence. Paroled in 1972, he was killed four years later in a bar fight.

What Is Tecumseh’s Curse And How Did The Curse On The American Presidency Originate?

The great Shawnee Chief Tecumseh, who died fighting with Canada against the United States’ invasion in the War of 1812, placed a curse on the American presidency.

Image
Shawnee Chief Tecumseh

He proclaimed that every president elected in a year that ends in a zero would die during his term.

Image

Since then, every president elected in such a year has died in office, with the exception of Ronald Reagan, who was shot, but survived.

Image

Here is a complete list of presidents affected by the curse:

Image

William Henry Harrison, elected in 1840, died of pneumonia one month into his presidency.

Image

Abraham Lincoln, elected in 1860, was assassinated in 1865 at the beginning of his second term.

Image

James A. Garfield, elected in 1880, was assassinated in 1881.

Image

William McKinley, elected for his second term in 1900, was assassinated in 1901.

Image

Warren G. Harding, elected in 1920, died of Ptomaine poisoning in 1923.

Image

Franklin D. Roosevelt, elected for his third term in 1940, died of a cerebral hemorrhage in 1945 at the beginning of his fourth term.

Image

John F. Kennedy, elected in 1960, was assassinated in 1963.

Image

Ronald Reagan, elected in 1980, survived an assassination attempt while in office. Some say that by surviving he broke the curse.

On this day 36 years ago:

At 11:38 a.m. EST, on January 28, 1986, the space shuttle Challenger lifted off from Cape Canaveral, Florida.

Image


Christa McAuliffe was on her way to becoming the first ordinary U.S. civilian to travel into space. McAuliffe, a 37-year-old high school social
studies teacher from New Hampshire, won a competition that earned her a place among the seven-member crew of the Challenger. She underwent
months of shuttle training.

Image


Seventy-three seconds later, hundreds on the ground, including Christa’s family, stared in disbelief as the shuttle broke up in a forking plume
of smoke and fire. Millions more watched the wrenching tragedy unfold on live television. There were no survivors.

Image


That's a day when time stopped, and everybody remembers where they were. The words, "Go with throttle-up" haunt me whenever
I watch a new take-off.

How Large Is The “Aswan High Dam” On The Nile River And Why Was The Aswan Dam In Egypt Built?

The Aswan High Dam in southern Egypt is 364 feet (111 m) tall and 12,565 feet (3,830 m) long.

Image

Image

Image

It was completed in 1970, after 10 years of construction.

Image

Image
The Soviets helped build it

It is built of silt, sand, clay, and rock, about 17 times as much material as contained in the Great Pyramid at Giza.

Image
Sign at Aswan High Dam

The dam was built for several reasons: to control flooding on the Nile, to increase Egypt’s electricity generation, and to provide water for crop irrigation.

Image

The dam made it possible to transform about 100,000 acres (40,470 hectares) of desert into farmland.

History Of Ice Cream


TRUE or FALSE

(1) Ice cream will cool you off on a hot summer day.

Image


(2) Americans invented the dessert.

Image


(3) Since mechanical refrigeration techniques were not developed until late in the nineteenth century, ice cream is obviously a recent arrival to man’s dessert table.

Image

------------

If you answered “false” to all three of the above statements, you’ve proved you really have the scoop on man’s favorite frosty confection. In fact, three answers of TRUE would place you among the majority of Americans, who are ice-cold when it comes to the finer points of ice cream lore.

Image

First, ice cream is not a cooler. Oh, it may cool your taste buds momentarily, and its psychological effect may convince you that you’re cooling off. But ice cream is chock-full of calories, the unit of measurement of heat. So, the ultimate effect of a bowlful of ice cream is to make you warmer, not cooler! Which brings us to the History of Ice Cream.

Image

Modern American refrigeration techniques and ice cream infatuation notwithstanding, the frozen dessert is neither a recent concoction nor a product of Yankee ingenuity. Most historians would trace the first bowl of ice cream to 15th or 16th century Italy, or perhaps England, but the story of ice cream’s rise to gustatory prominence is a good deal more interesting than a simple date.

Image

In ancient Rome, the Emperor Nero had snow transported from nearby mountains to cool his wine cellar, and reportedly concocted some of the first water-ice desserts by mixing the snow with honey, juices, and fruit. But the first frozen dessert made from milk didn’t reach Europe until the thirteenth century, when Marco Polo returned from the Orient with a recipe for a milk-ice, presumably similar to sherbet.

Image

Improvements in ice and sherbet-making probably led to the invention of ice cream some time in the sixteenth century. We know that early in that century Italian noblemen were enjoying a frozen milk product called “flower of milk.” Yet Anglophiles may proudly point to a 15th century manuscript reporting on the coronation of Henry V that mentions a dessert called creme frez. If creme frez was indeed ice cream, then the manuscript proves that the reputedly Italian invention was actually being made in England before the sixteenth century.

Image

Italian ice cream arrived in France in 1533, along with Catherine de Medici and her retinue of chefs, when the fourteen-year-old Florentine moved to Paris to marry King Henry II. (Modern French cooking, by the way, is actually Italian in origin, descended from the Florentine cuisine of Catherine’s chefs.) For many years, the chefs of various French noblemen tried to keep their recipes for ice cream a secret from other chefs and from their masters, who were frequently astounded by their cooks’ talent for serving a cold dessert even in the warmest weather.

Image

Ice cream remained a treat for the rich and regal until 1670, when Paris’s first cafe, the Procope, opened its doors and made the frigid dessert available to the masses for the first time. Other cafes quickly followed including the Cafe Napolitain, whose proprietor, a Monsieur Tortoni, concocted the creamy delight that still bears his name.

Image Image

The first mention of ice cream in America occurs in 1700, but the dessert was not made here in any quantity until much later in the century. Both George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were known to be ice cream fanciers.

Image

Jefferson, who had learned how to make French ice cream during a visit to France, was one of the first rulers to serve the confection at a state dinner. Jefferson once served a dessert of crisp, hot pastry with ice cream in the middle, perhaps the first ice cream sandwich in America.

Image

Ice cream remained an expensive dish until the early nineteenth century, which saw the invention of the insulated icehouse and the hand-crank ice cream freezer. By the 1820’s, the dessert was being sold by street vendors in New York City, who beckoned passersby with shouts of “I scream ice cream.”

Image

Many vendors peddled a concoction they called hokey pokey, made from milk and eggs boiled to form a custard, then frozen in pewter vessels surrounded by salt and ice. Hokey pokey could thus be considered the ancestor of today’s frozen custard. The term, by the way, is thought to be related to “hocus pocus,” since one could never be quite sure what went into cheap ice cream. By the middle of the century, ice cream was so popular that a magazine editor was moved to write: “A party without ice cream would be like a breakfast without bread or a dinner without a roast.”

Image

Image Image Image

The father of the American ice cream industry was Jacob Fussell. Beginning in 1851 with a small ice cream store in Baltimore, Fussell was soon selling his wares in shops from Boston to Washington, and during the Civil War the ice cream entrepreneur sold huge quantities of ice cream to Union supply officers. By the end of the century, ice cream could be bought almost anywhere in the nation. New inventions such as steam power, mechanical refrigeration, electricity, and the homogenizer made the ice cream plant virtually as modern as it is today.

Image

Image

In the early decades of this century, the popularity of the soda fountain made ice cream an American institution. Temperance preachers urged listeners to give up the grape in favor of the cool confection. Baseball star Walter Johnson, no relation to Howard, boasted that all he ever ate on the day he was to pitch was a quart of ice cream. Beginning in 1921, officials at the Ellis Island immigration station in New York, intent on serving the newcomers a “truly American dish,” included ice cream in all meals served at the station.

Image
Soda Jerk by Norman Rockwell

By that time, the three mainstays of the ice cream parlor, the soda, the sundae, and the cone, were already popular from coast to coast. The first to appear was the ice cream soda. In 1874, a soda-fountain manufacturer by the name of Robert M. Green was busily vending a cool drink made of sweet cream, syrup, and carbonated water (now known as the egg cream) at the semi-centennial celebration of Philadelphia’s Franklin Institute. One day, Green ran out of cream and substituted vanilla ice cream, and the new treat quickly became a sensation. Green went on to make a fortune selling ice cream sodas. His will dictated that “Originator of the Ice Cream Soda” be engraved on his tombstone.

There are many claims for the invention of the ice cream sundae, which emerged during the 1890’s. But then contemporary laws that forbade the sale of soda on Sunday undoubtedly had a hand in popularizing the dessert. The first sundaes were sold in ice cream parlors only on Sunday, and thus were called “Sundays” or “soda-less sodas.” The spelling change to “sundae” was made later by ice cream parlor proprietors eager to see the dish shed its Sunday-only connotation.

History Of Ice Cream

The best-known explanation for the invention of the ice cream cone traces its origin to the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition in St. Louis. According to the tale, an ice cream salesman by the name of Charles E. Menches gave an ice cream sandwich and a bouquet of flowers to the young lady he was escorting. She rolled one of the sandwich wafers into a cone to hold the flowers, then rolled the other wafer into a cone for the ice cream. But some researchers claim that nineteenth-century Frenchmen occasionally ate ice cream from paper or metal cones.

Image

Ice cream parlors were an integral part of American life early in this century, in many ways the social forums of their time. In these emporia, busy soda jerks developed a lingo all their own. Adam’s ale, for instance, was water, while bekh water meant seltzer. ”A pair of drawers” could mean only one thing: two cups of coffee. The expression ”fix the pumps” was used to call attention to a female customer with large breasts.

Image
Ice Cream Parlor

Fortunes were made in the ice cream trade during the heyday of the soda fountain. Louis Sherry, a Frenchman from Vermont, began his career as a famed restauranteur when he was granted the ice cream concession at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York. In 1925, Howard Johnson, the father of American franchisers, opened his first ice cream store in Wollaston, Massachusetts. Johnson, incidentally, once sold 14,000 ice cream cones in a single day at his Wollaston Beach stand.

In 1921, the Eskimo pie was introduced in Des Moines, Iowa by the same Russell Stover who was to go on to fame and fortune in the candy trade. The Good Humor, meanwhile, was the handiwork of one Harry Burt, an ice cream parlor owner from Youngstown, Ohio. Before starting out in the ice cream business, Burt had sold a lollypop he called the Good Humor Sucker. The bright idea to mount a chocolate-covered Eskimo pie on a lollypop stick led to ice-cream-on-a stick, and the familiar white wagons that still ply our streets with their tinkling bells. Good Humor bars are now sold in most supermarkets as well.

Today, the manufacture of ice cream is, of course, mechanized. Factories first produce a liquid product made of 80 percent cream or butterfat, milk, and nonfat milk solids, and about 15 percent sweeteners. Next they pasteurize, homogenize, whip, and partially freeze the mixture, then add flavoring, package, and fully freeze the product in its containers at temperatures of about 240 degrees below zero. The finished product is frequently as rich in vitamins as an equivalent amount of milk.

Image

Image

Image

Frozen mousse is a cold dessert made from sweetened whipped cream, flavoring, and gelatin. Sherbet consists of milk, sweeteners, and fruit flavoring, while Italian Ices is made from fruit juices, water, and sweeteners. French ice cream is definitely different from other varieties: in this country, only ice cream made with eggs can legally be sold as “French.”

Image
”French”

The quality of ice cream products differs greatly from brand to brand, due to such factors as the amount of fresh milk, cream, or eggs used, the naturalness of the flavoring ingredients, and the presence of preservatives and synthetic flavor and texture enhancers. If the ice cream you’ve been enjoying recently leaves something to be desired in the taste bud department, consider yourself lucky. A U.S. Department of Agriculture scientist has suggested that ice cream may someday be made from powdered soybean milk!

Image

Americans presently consume over a billion gallons of ice cream, ices, and sherbet each year - enough to completely fill the Grand Canyon. Americans are by far the world’s largest consumers of ice cream. The average person in the United States puts away about twenty-three quarts each year, that’s roughly equivalent to a cone per person every other day. Only Australians, Canadians, and New Zealanders eat even half that much. Compare that figure with the average yearly consumption of 100 years ago, about one teaspoon per person!

Image

The worlds largest ice cream sundae was created in White Bear Lake, MN in 2013.

Image

Most ice cream stores today point with pride, not to the size of their wares, but to the sheer length of their flavor list. The Baskin Robbins company lists over 300 flavors in its repertoire, and the number is still climbing, though you’ll have a tough time finding half that many in any one store. The winner of the Baskin Robbins America’s Favorite Flavor Contest, by the way, was Chocolate Mint ice cream. The modern ice cream maker will go to any length to outdo the competition with bizarre new taste treats, and novelty flavors such as iced tea, bubblegum, root beer, and mango ice cream, the newcomers occasionally outsell the old standbys vanilla and chocolate.

Image

But don’t think that exotic flavors belong solely to the modern ice cream maker. A recipe book dating from 1700 shows that even at that date, French confectioners were turning out such tempting ice cream flavors as apricot, violet, and rose!

Image

As for me, I’ve managed to work up quite an appetite. I think I’ll curl up in a corner and have two scoops of Jamoca Almond Fudge on a sugar cone with plenty of sprinkles. Humm, who makes that? Why Baskin Robbins, of course.

Why Do Old Maps Of Coney Island Have A Spot Marked “Incubator Babies”?

Image

Image

I’m glad you asked about Incubator Babies, because the history behind the incubator is a little bizarre.

Image

When Alexandre Lion invented the baby incubator in 1891, it was in response to an alarming infant mortality rate in France. Lion built a device with a water boiler and a fan system that blew warm, filtered air into a covered baby bed.

Image
Dr. Alexandre Lion

Image

This counteracted the problems premature babies have with maintaining their body temperatures. Positive results were seen instantly, and the incubator saved lives that normally would’ve been lost.

Image

Lion appealed to hospitals for the support to build more, but they wouldn’t come up with either the funds or the interest. He resorted to showing the incubators at exhibitions, but found that without the main ingredient, —the baby—he could generate little interest in what essentially looked like an empty box.

Image
Many incubators were empty

So he made a bold move. He solicited premature babies from local hospitals. The hospitals, believing preemies were going to die anyway, lent them to him, giving the babies a chance at life.

Image

Lion’s first live exhibit had a futuristic appearance, with wet nurses, incubators, and live babies behind a glass wall or other barrier, allowing fairgoers the ability to walk by and gawk.

Image

They were so amazed, in fact, that many had to be turned away. Lion decided he would start charging a ten cent admission to reduce the crowd size. This still didn’t deter most of the fairgoers, who were willing to fork over cash to look at the newfangled machines and the tiny premature babies.

Image

The admission price that Lion had intended as a crowd-control method quickly turned into a viable funding source to build more of the lifesaving machines.

Image

Another pediatrician, Dr. Martin Couney, joined the exhibition craze and also began exhibiting incubators with preemies inside. Couney’s exhibit was so successful that he was asked to exhibit all over the world - which he did, finally ending up at Coney Island’s Luna Park, his first permanent exhibit, in 1904.

Image
Dr. Martin Coumey

Image

The sign at the show read ALL THE WORLD LOVES A BABY, and it became Coney Island’s longest-running show. It also saved a lot of lives - New York hospitals began routinely sending all premature babies to Dr. Couney.

Image

The babies received this excellent around-the-clock care for free, and their families were given free passes to the exhibit. The results were miraculous. According to statistics at the time, of premature babies born without the use of an incubator, only 15 percent lived.

Image

With the use of the incubator, 85 percent survived. More than 6,500 of the 8,000 premature babies used in the Coney Island exhibit survived and were sent home to their families.

Image
The baby incubator acted as a small hospital. It was kept
scrupulously clean. The nurses, always dressed in starched white
uniforms and caps, came from accredited schools all over the country,
and received specialized training to care for the infants


Couney kept his exhibit going for many decades, until the rest of the medical world finally caught up with the incubator sideshows and began opening hospital preemie centers of their own.

Who Was Tiburcio Vasquez And Why Was The Bandido Considered A Hero To Californios?

Tiburcio Vasquez was born in 1835 in Monterey, California, Mexico.

Image

In 1848, when he was twelve, his part of Mexico became part of the United States. As he grew older, he realized that Anglo Americans did not respect him or his people.

Image

When he went to parties hosted by Californios (Californians of Mexican descent), Anglos would push their way through the gates, shoving him and his friends aside and forcing Chicana women to dance. He wrote that by the age of sixteen or seventeen, “a spirit of hatred and revenge took possession of me.”

Image

Defending his people’s honor in fights, he was always being chased by the police, until in 1852 he shot a constable. From then on he was an outlaw, a desperado.

Image
Constables hunting for Vasquez

He robbed stores and stagecoaches. He stole horses and cattle. Authorities launched a massive manhunt, with the cooperation of rich Californios. But the Chicano peasants who sheltered him refused to betray him. He was their hero. Like Robin Hood, Vasquez was said to share his stolen goods with the poor.

Image

In the 1870s, Vasquez was finally captured at the ranch of a man called Greek George. A jury of Anglos found him guilty, and he was hanged.

What Caused The Fire That Destroyed The Hindenburg In 1937?

St. Elmo’s Fire, or, to a layperson: static electricity caused the fire that destroyed the Hindenburg in 1937.

In actuality, it was probably the highly combustible hydrogen used to fuel the air ship. Why would the Nazis stupidly use hydrogen if it’s so flammable, you may be asking? Because times were tough and the U.S. had cornered the market on helium, charging exorbitant prices for it.

Most compromised safety to save a little dough; the Nazis were no exception.
