GRAMMY Awards Premiere Ceremony®

62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards

GRAMMY Celebration®

History:

The first Grammy Awards ceremony was held on May 4th, 1959, to honor and respect the musical accomplishments by performers for the year 1958.

A Grammy Award (stylized as GRAMMY, originally called Gramophone Award), or Grammy, is an award presented by The Recording Academy to recognize achievements in the music industry. The trophy depicts a gilded gramophone. The annual presentation ceremony features performances by prominent artists, and the presentation of those awards that have a more popular interest. The 

Grammys are the second of the Big Three major music awards held annually (between the American Music Awards in the Fall, and the Billboard Music Awards in the Summer).

ABOUT THE RECORDING ACADEMY

The Recording Academy represents the voices of performers, songwriters, producers, engineers, and all music professionals. Dedicated to ensuring the recording arts remain a thriving part of our shared cultural heritage, the Academy honors music’s history while investing in its future through the GRAMMY Museum®, advocates on behalf of music creators, supports music people in times of need through MusiCares, and celebrates artistic excellence through the GRAMMY Awards—music’s only peer-recognized accolade and highest achievement. As the world’s leading society of music professionals, we work year-round to foster a more inspiring world for creators.

Apple launched Macintosh on January 24, 1984 and altered the globe

The Apple of 1984 and the Apple that created the Macintosh also created one of the most famous advertisements of them all. It had aired on TV during the Super Bowl and also Steve Jobs played it again as part of the product launch.

“We’re gambling on our vision. And we would rather do that than make ‘me too’ products. Let some other companies do that,” said Steve Jobs.

Steve Jobs, said yet we are not copiers, Jobs was not the originator either. He did not invent the Macintosh, as much as Jobs would continually tell people.

Jef Raskin

Impartially speaking the very first Mac in 1984 would not have been what it was without Steve Jobs. For starters Steve Jobs gets 100 percent credit for insisting that a mouse be on the Mac.”

Apple’s Jef Raskin, however, gets all the credit for initiating the project, starting the basic concept of what the device would do, and for naming it Macintosh. He even gets credit for how the mouse turned out as despite his preference for a joystick, it was his work that resulted in the one-button model when others use two or three.

Steve Jobs officially launch of the Mac was on stage at the Flint Center in De Anza College, Cupertino, on Tuesday, January 24, 1984.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968)

Monday is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, honoring the memory of the late civil rights leader who would have turned 90 this past Friday

Martin Luther King, Jr. was an American Baptist minister, activist, humanitarian, and leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using nonviolent civil disobedience based on his Christian beliefs.

King became a civil rights activist early in his career. He led the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott and helped found the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) in 1957, serving as its first president. With the SCLC, King led an unsuccessful 1962 struggle against segregation in Albany, Georgia (the Albany Movement), and helped organize the 1963 nonviolent protests in Birmingham, Alabama. King also helped to organize the 1963 March on Washington, where he delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech. There, he established his reputation as one of the greatest orators in American history.

On October 14, 1964, King received the Nobel Peace Prize for combating racial inequality through nonviolence. In 1965, he helped to organize the Selma to Montgomery marches, and the following year he and SCLC took the movement north to Chicago to work on segregated housing. In the final years of his life, King expanded his focus to include poverty and speak against the Vietnam War, alienating many of his liberal allies with a 1967 speech titled “Beyond Vietnam”.

In 1968, King was planning a national occupation of Washington, D.C., to be called the Poor People’s Campaign, when he was assassinated on April 4 in Memphis, Tennessee. His death was followed by riots in many U.S. cities.

King was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day was established as a holiday in numerous cities and states beginning in 1971, and as a U.S. federal holiday in 1986. Hundreds of streets in the U.S. have been renamed in his honor, and a county in Washington State was also renamed for him. The Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., was dedicated in 2011.

The True Meaning of Halloween?

Today Halloween is primarily marked by putting on a disguise and asking for candy, but Halloween has its roots in at least two Medieval celebrations: the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian holiday All Saint’s Day. The spooky festival’s name, however, comes from only one. Samhain is Gaelic for “summer’s end,” and marks what has loosely been labeled the “Celtic New Year,” the end of the “lighter half” of the year and the beginning of the “darker half.” One of the four fire festivals of the year, it was celebrated on November 1 when, it was believed, the dead arose for one night. Sound familiar? The other celebration, All Saint’s Day, honors all of the Catholic saints. The Roman Catholic Church refers to it as the “Solemnity of All Saints.” Though this celebration does not bear a close resemblance to the festivities of Halloween, it did give the holiday its name. The word Halloween is a direct derivation of All Saints’ Day. 

All Hallows in Old English means “the feast of the saints.” Halloween, first attested in the 18th century, is a Scottish variant of All-Hallows-Even. The Even meant evening. The spelling of the word was once Hallowe’en, in which the “v” was elided. The current spelling wasn’t widely adopted until the 20th century.

Hindenburg Disaster

Hindenburg Disaster

The Hindenburg disaster occurred on May 6, 1937, in Manchester Township, New Jersey, United States. The German passenger airship LZ 129 Hindenburg caught fire and was destroyed during its attempt to dock with its mooring mast at Naval Air Station Lakehurst. On board were 97 people; there were 36 fatalities.
 
This photo is an image of the famous Hindenburg crash. The famed balloon went up for it maiden voyage to show passengers and spectators alike the potential for balloon travel when a spark ignited the hydrogen that filled the airship while it attempted to dock. In all there were 36 fatalities and injuries as well.
 
The disaster was the subject of newsreel coverage, photographs, and Herbert Morrison's recorded radio eyewitness reports from the landing field, which were broadcast the next day. A variety of hypotheses have been put forward for both the cause of ignition and the initial fuel for the ensuing fire. The event shattered public confidence in the giant, passenger-carrying rigid airship and marked the abrupt end of the airship era

The iceberg thought to have been hit by Titanic, photographed the morning of 15 April 1912 by SS Prinz Adalbert's chief steward. The iceberg was reported to have a streak of red paint from a ship's hull along its waterline on one side.

19 – the number of icebergs that third class survivor Charles Dahl later claimed he had seen from lifeboat number 15, during the hours following the sinking. In an interview with the Chicago American newspaper Dahl criticized the speed at which Titanic had been traveling through the ice field, describing how Carpathia had needed to zigzag through bergs whilst collecting survivors.
 
11:39 pm – the time at which the iceberg Titanic struck was first spotted, too late to avoid a collision.
 
30 seconds – the amount of time from the first sighting of the iceberg to the impact.
 
50 – 100 feet – the estimated height of the iceberg above water, as recounted by Titanic survivors.
 
200 – 400 feet – the estimated length of the iceberg.
 
5 – the number of days after the sinking when Rehorek took his photograph of the iceberg.
 
85% – the amount of all icebergs in the North Atlantic that originate from the west coast of Greenland.
 
1909 – the year in which the Titanic iceberg is believed to have been ‘born’.
 
1 – 2 – the likely number of icebergs that the Ilulissat ice-shelf would have produced in 1909.
 
1 – 4% – the proportion of those icebergs that survive to reach shipping waters. They initially float north along Greenland’s west coast before beginning their southward journey past the coastlines of Baffin Island, Labrador and Newfoundland, before passing through the gulf stream into the Atlantic past. Most do not make it this far, either getting caught en route or finally melting in the warm waters of the gulf stream.
