Who was Henry Ford?

 

Henry Ford


Synopsis

Born on July 30, 1863, near Dearborn, Michigan, Henry Ford created the Ford Model T car in 1908 and went on to develop the assembly line mode of production, which revolutionized the industry. As a result, Ford sold millions of cars and became a world-famous company head. The company lost its market dominance but had a lasting impact on other technological development and U.S. infrastructure.

Early Life

Famed automobile manufacturer Henry Ford was born on July 30, 1863, on his family's farm in Wayne County, near Dearborn, Michigan. When Ford was 13 years old, his father gifted him a pocket watch, which the young boy promptly took apart and reassembled. Friends and neighbors were impressed, and requested that he fix their timepieces too.

Unsatistfied with farm work, Ford left home the following year, at the age of 16, to take an apprenticeship as a machinist in Detroit. In the years that followed, he would learn to skillfully operate and service steam engines, and would also study bookkeeping.

Here are the ten most common passwords that will make you easier to hack

 If you use one of these ten passwords, you might want to quickly change it.

The ten most commonly-used passwords have been unveiled, based on a leaked Yahoo database, and perhaps unsurprisingly, "123456" and "password" led the way, followed by "welcome", "ninja" and "abc123".

"123456789", "12345678" (because that extra 9 is just too much), "sunshine", "princess" and "qwerty" rounded out the top ten most popular passwords.

Researchers have warned that using any of these ten passwords could make it easy for online fraudsters to hack you.

TESLA ACCELERATION SPEED CATCHES UP TO LAFERRARI AFTER SOFTWARE UPDATE

 A software update to the Tesla Model S will make the electric car the second quickest vehicle in the world, capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 2.4 seconds.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced the update on Twitter, saying the update will be made available for the Tesla Model S P100D next month. The 0.1-second improvement moves the Tesla Model S alongside Ferrari’s LaFerrari in terms of acceleration. Only the Porsche 918 Spyder is capable of reaching 60 mph in less time.

In Practice: What ingredients make the best physicists?

 CERN’s main restaurant, imaginatively named Restaurant 1, is a vital part of the life of any physicist on the campus. At any moment — weekends and nights included — you’ll find groups of young, enthusiastic students chattering animatedly about their work, or individuals hunched over laptops, clutching coffee and wearing huge headphones.
Sat on the end of one of these high, long tables discussing what makes a successful physicist, Dr Anne-Marie Magnan giggles: “For a while I was interested in philosophy but I think it was just because I had a crush on the teacher… I quickly went back to physics!”

“Opportunities came up, I was interested so I applied and got them. For me, it was physics from early on.” She explains that being able to change direction, and be open to what life throws at you is, she believes, key to being a good experimental physicist.
“Sometimes the best physicist is one that’s able to take us in a new direction, to see a new way where you might be more successful,” she continues.
Magnan now works for CERN’s CMS experiment and supervises several of the collaboration’s budding young scientists. “The absolute best physicists I’ve ever seen are people who are very good at building on what they know by seeing a way to change it slightly and finding a new path,” she explains.
