The Wright Company: From Invention to Industry ...

Fresh from successful flights before royalty in Europe, and soon after thrilling hundreds of thousands of people by flying around the Statue of Liberty, in the fall of 1909 Wilbur and Orville Wright decided the time was right to begin manufacturing their airplanes for sale. Backed by Wall Street tycoons, including August Belmont, Cornelius Vanderbilt III, and Andrew Freedman, the brothers formed the Wright Company. But all was not well in Dayton, a city that hummed with industry, producing cash registers, railroad cars, and many other products. The brothers found it hard to transition from running their own bicycle business to being corporate executives responsible for other people´s money. Their dogged pursuit of enforcement of their 1906 patent - especially against Glenn Curtiss and his company - helped hold back the development of the U.S. aviation industry. When Orville Wright sold the company in 1915, more than three years after his brother´s death, he was a comfortable man - but his company had built only 120 airplanes at its Dayton factory and Wright Company products were not in the U.S. arsenal as war continued in Europe. 1.

Edwin Grosvenor writes of Bell´s other extraordinary inventions: the first transmission of sound over light waves, metal detector, first practical phonograph, and early airplanes, including the first to fly in Canada.

In 1910, when Olaf F. Larson was born to tenant livestock and tobacco farmers in Rock County, Wisconsin, the original barn still stood on the property. It was filled with artifacts of an earlier time - an ox yoke, a grain cradle, a scythe used to cut hay by hand. But Larson came of age in a brave new world of modern inventions - tractors, trucks, combines, airplanes - that would change farming and rural life forever. When Horses Pulled the Plow is Larson´s account of that rural life in the early 20th century. He weaves invaluable historical details - including descriptions of farm equipment, crops, and livestock - with wry tales about his family, neighbors, and the one-room schoolhouse he attended, revealing the texture of everyday life in the rural Midwest almost a century ago. This memoir, written by Larson in his ninth decade, provides a wealth of details recalled from an earlier era and an illuminating listen for anyone with their own memories of growing up on a farm. The book is published by the University of Wisconsin Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Neil Reeves. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/064443/bk_acx0_064443_sample.mp3.

Chase Baker, Renaissance man and adventurer is back. When a flirtatious, beautiful young woman by the name of Andrea Gallo claims to be a fan of his pulp novels, Chase can´t resist reciprocating in the lusty attraction. But that night, while the two enjoy a romantic evening of wine and love in his Florence apartment, he is suddenly kidnapped from his bed by two thugs who turn out not only to be working for Great Britain´s infamous MI-16, but also working side-by-side with Gallo. Duped once again, Chase wants to bid his newfound romance a quick ´´arrivederci´´ and be on his way. But when they tell him they desperately need his help to uncover a legendary cave in the Northern Italian forest before a team of Russian and Iranian hardliners do, he feels compelled to help out, regardless of their rather unsound method of capturing his attention. But what´s so special about the cave? It´s said to be the very same cave that Leonardo da Vinci discovered as a young man back in the mid-15th century, and where he not only learned the secrets behind his many inventions, including the airplane, but where he was exposed to the very meaning behind God´s divine plan for mankind. Why is the MI-16 so desperate to uncover the cave before the bad guys do? Whoever discovers it first will possess the knowledge and the power to take over the world. 1. Language: English.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

The 18th and 19th centuries saw the emergence of new intermediary types of knowledge in areas such as applied mechanics, fluid mechanics and thermodynamics, which came to be labeled as engineering science, transforming technology into the scientific discipline that we know today. This book analyzes how the Scientific Revolution of the 16th and 17th centuries and the Industrial Revolution of the 18th and 19th centuries provided the intellectual, social, economic and institutional foundations for the emergence of engineering science. The book then traces the rise of engineering science from the 18th century through the 19th century and concludes by showing how it led to new technological developments in such areas as steel production, the invention of internal combustion engines, the creation of automobiles and airplanes, and the formulation of Mass Production and Scientific Management all of which brought about major transformations in the materials, power sources, transportation and production techniques that have come to shape our modern world.
