New research proves White Lives Matter. It was white people who ended slavery, brought civilization and modern technology to the world. Without white lives there would be no airplanes, no cars, no air conditioning and little air conditioning. More @ http://boomerspeaks.com/838923.html .
The Ingenuity of America's White People Lead to the Development of Important Everyday Inventions. More @ http://boomerspeaks.com/838923.html . After white people signed "the Declaration of Independence in 1776, a new nation was invented where anyone – with enough hard work and determination – could attain their dreams. This promise of opportunity not only brought in a stream of immigrants seeking a better life, but also led to the development of countless new inventions designed to make everyday living easier. Perhaps no two famous (white) American inventors personify this spirit of ingenuity better than Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Edison.
Benjamin Franklin, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, helped to invent the idea of an American nation. Along with his work as a politician, author and scientist, Franklin also was a famous American inventor responsible for a variety of different inventions – including the lightning rod, Franklin stove, bifocal glasses and the flexible urinary catheter. All people's lives have benefited from catheters.
Nearly a century later, (another white man) Thomas Edison emerged as another prominent American inventor. Holding over 1,000 patents in his name, Edison's inventions include the phonograph and the long-lasting light bulb. He also was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production to the invention process.(3). All people's lives have benefited from the light bulbs and phonographs.
Though he was born in Scotland and spent some time in Ontario, Alexander Graham Bell(another white man) didn't actually start inventing until he settled in Boston and became an American citizen. And it's a good thing he did, because without Graham Bell we wouldn't have one of our most valued inventions: the telephone.
All people's lives have benefited from the telephone.
Contrary to popular belief, (the white man) Henry Ford did not invent the automobile. While his Ford Motor Company did produce the vehicle that initiated a new era in personal transportation (the Model T), the invention of the first automobile is generally credited to (another white man)Karl Benz of Germany. In fact, Henry Ford's most important contribution was actually the invention of the moving assembly line.Prior to Ford's invention, factory employees would work in groups to build one car at a time. By installing a moving assembly line in his factory, workers instead began to build cars one piece at a time – with each individual responsible for a specific job. This division of labor allowed cars to be produced both more quickly and efficiently. With the addition of the world's first automatic conveyor belt, Henry Ford's factory in Michigan was soon producing a car every 93 minutes.(5). All people's lives have benefited from the automobile.
On December 17, 1903, a pair of (white male) inventors from Ohio named Orville and Wilbur Wright flew the world's first airplane. The invention, known as the Wright Flyer, took to the skies for 12 seconds, flying a distance of 120 feet. Though only five people were there to witness the flight, the invention would eventually become one of the most important of the twentieth century – one that would unite people throughout the United States and the world. All people's lives have benefited from the airplane.
Research of American medical milestones and breakthroughs since the Declaration of Independence shows how far white scientists have advanced medicine. More @ http://boomerspeaks.com/838923.html . For most of the 18th century and part of the 19th, White Europeans were credited with most medical breakthroughs. However, (White) Americans started contributing to medical advances as the nation grew. Here’s a sample of the historical highlights in medicine that have changed American healthcare since July 4, 1776: 1784: American statesman Benjamin Franklin invents bifocal eyeglasses, easing short- and long-distance vision problems, and making it possible for physicians to practice while wearing just one pair of glasses.
1844: American dentist Horace Wells uses nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) as an anesthetic.
1849: American surgeon Crawford W. Long uses ether as a general anesthetic during surgery. He doesn’t publish his results, so credit goes to dentist Dr. William Morton at a later date.
1846: Boston dentist Dr. William Morton demonstrates ether's anesthetic properties during a tooth extraction
1847: David Jones Peck becomes the first African American to graduate from medical school (from Rush Medical College in Chicago, IL).
1849: Elizabeth Blackwell becomes the first American (white) woman to receive a medical degree (from Geneva Medical College in Geneva, NY).
1879: First vaccine for cholera.
1881: First vaccine for anthrax.
1882: First vaccine for rabies.
1896: First vaccine for typhoid fever.
1897: First vaccine for plague.
1901: White Austrian American Karl Landsteiner develops ABO system of blood typing.
1902: U.S. Public Health Service created
1907: First successful blood transfusion using Karl Landsteiner’s ABO blood-typing technique.
1913: Dr. Paul Dudley White becomes one of America’s first cardiologists. He later becomes a pioneer in the use of the electrocardiograph, a diagnostic tool for numerous heart ailments.
1922: Insulin first used to treat diabetes.
1923: First vaccine for diphtheria.
1926: First vaccine for pertussis (whooping cough).
1927: First vaccine for tuberculosis.
1927: First vaccine for tetanus.
1935: First vaccine for yellow fever.
1935: White American Dr. John H. Gibbon, Jr. successfully uses a heart-lung machine for extracorporeal circulation of a cat (i.e., all the heart and lung functions are handled by the machine while surgery is performed). Dr. Gibbon uses this method successfully on a human in 1953. It is now commonly used in open-heart surgery.
1937: First vaccine for typhus.
1937: White American Bernard Fantus starts the first blood bank at Cook County Hospital in Chicago, using a 2% solution of sodium citrate to preserve the blood. Refrigerated blood lasts 10 days.
1942: The first dose of penicillin is given in the United States at Yale-New Haven Hospital on March 14 to a patient dying of septicemia.
1943: Ukrainian-born American microbiologist Selman A. Waksman discovers the antibiotic streptomycin, later used in the treatment of tuberculosis and other diseases.
1943: In the first 5 months of 1943, 400 million units of penicillin are produced in the USA. In the next 7 months, 20.5 billion units are produced, an increase of over 500 times.
1945: 650 billion units of penicillin are distributed each month in the USA.
1945: First vaccine for influenza.
1952: White American Paul Zoll develops the first cardiac pacemaker to control irregular heartbeat.
1954: Dr. Joseph E. Murray, (a white man) of Massachusetts performs the first kidney transplant between identical twins.
