This Day in History: Davy Lamp Tested at Hebburn Colliery (1816)


This Day in History:
Davy Lamp Tested at Hebburn Colliery (1816)

The Davy lamp was an early safety lamp used in the mining and quarrying industries. It was designed by English chemist and physicist Sir Humphrey Davy to prevent the accidental ignition of flammable gases. This was achieved by enclosing the flame of the oil-burning lamp in wire gauze that distributed heat over a large area and brought its temperature below the ignition temperature of methane. Why did the introduction of the Davy lamp initially lead to an increase in the rate of mining accidents? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Article of the Day: The Fedora


Article of the Day:
The Fedora

The fedora is a soft, medium-brimmed, felt hat with a creased crown and, usually, a band. It is often associated with film noir private detectives and Prohibition-era Mafiosos, and it tops off most zoot suits. Considered an essential piece of menswear in the US in the 1940s and 50s, the fedora fell out of fashion in the early 60s, when thinner lapels and ties called for shorter-brimmed hats, and when, according to one theory, American men saw what public figure without one?

Today’s Holiday: Battle of New Orleans Day


Today’s Holiday:
Battle of New Orleans Day

When British soldiers attacked near the Chalmette plantation outside New Orleans on January 8, 1815, they were met by a ragtag army of militiamen, sailors, and pirates fighting from behind barricades. The defending U.S. troops were led by General Andrew Jackson, whose stunning victory—the British suffered some 2,000 casualties, while the Americans lost only eight men—made him a national hero. This day remains a legal holiday in Louisiana, where it is also known as Jackson Day or, in honor of Jackson’s nickname, as Old Hickory’s Day.
