GUGLIELMO MARCONI

GuglieImo Marconi (born 1874 in Bologna, Italy) became fascinated with the discovery by German Physicist Heinrich Rudolf Hertz of “invisible waves” generated by electromagnetic interactions. Marconi built his own wave-generating equipment at his family estate and thus sent and recieved his first radio signal in 1895.

Marconi moved to England and worked with the British Post Office. Two years later, he set up a wireless station on the Isle of Wight that allowed Queen Victoria to send messages to her son Edward aboard the royal yacht. By 1899, Marconi flashed the first wireless signal from Poldhu, Cornwell to Signal hill, St. John’s, Newfoundland. two years later on Dec 12,1901 he picked up a faint three-dot sequence -the Morse code letter “s”.

In 1909, he shared a Nobel Prize in Physics with Karl Ferdinand Braun “in recognition of their contributions to the development of wireless telegraph”. Guglielmo Marconi died on 20 July 1937. In his honour, radio stations in USA, UK and Italy broadcast several minutes of silence.

Baden-Baden, meaning the Baths in Baden, is a spa town built on thermal springs at the edge of the Black Forest in Baden-Württemberg, south west Germany.

The springs of Baden-Baden have been known for more than 2,000 years, and their composition resembles that of the Roman baths of the 3rd century. The water at the baths of "Caracalla-Therme" spa is rich in sodium chloride, and comes from artesian wells 1,800 metres under the Florentiner Mountain.

The city offers many options for sports enthusiasts. Golf and tennis are both popular in the area. The countryside is ideal for hiking and mountain climbing. In the winter Baden-Baden is a skiing destination.

The popularity of the city as a spa dates from the early 19th century, when the Prussian queen visited the site to improve her health. During the 19th century, the town rose to become a meeting place for celebrities, who were attracted by the hot springs as well as by the famous Baden-Baden Casino, the luxury hotels, the horse races, and the gardens of the Lichtentaler Allee. Clients included Queen Victoria, Wilhelm I, Napoleon III, Berlioz, Brahms, Turgenev, and Dostoyevsky.

Badens's Spielbank casino is more than 200 years old and the oldest of its type in Germany. Dostoyevsky is said to have written The Gambler after he lost his money and even his shirt here. The rooms were designed in the style of a French château.

Don't be put off by its reputation as a hang-out for the rich. This picturesque town is beautifully situated in a wooded valley, and you can enjoy yourself here without spending or gambling a fortune.

Intersections

Sometimes old stories sharply intersect before disappearing into the future.  One of these intersection sits in a massive decaying road bridge on the road to Gundagai - in New South Wales.

Said to be the longest wooden iron truss bridge in the Southern Hemisphere, first opened in 1865, this bridge in final form spanned 922 m (3024').  It was decommissioned after the modern Sheahan bridge was opened in 1977.  

The bridge was named after Prince Alfred, the second son of Queen Victoria.  He reigned as Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha in the final years of the Nineteenth Century.  

In command of the British warship Galatea Prince Alfred landed in Sydney - where he was subject to an assassination attempt by the Irishman Henry O'Farrell, a lawyer's clerk, in August 1867.

Parkes, the Colonial Secretary for New South Wales was at that stage engaged in suppressing Irish discontent in the southern parts of the state, from Gundagai to Cooma and Braidwood.  Parkes claimed that the attempted assassination was part of a Fenian plot and feared a general uprising.  

The Prince was nursed back to health by six nurses trained by Florence Nightingale.

The Owl and the Pussy-Cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat:
They took some honey, 
and plenty of money
Wrapped up in a five-pound note.

The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
"O lovely Pussy, O Pussy, my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are,
You are,
You are!
What a beautiful Pussy you are!"

Contemporary Illustrator: Donna L. Derstine
Pussy said to the Owl, "You elegant fowl,
How charmingly sweet you sing!
Oh! let us be married; 
too long we have tarried:
But what shall we do for a ring?"
They sailed away, for a year and a day,
To the land where the bong-tree grows;
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood,
With a ring at the end of his nose,
His nose,
His nose,
With a ring at the end of his nose.

"Dear Pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling
Your ring?" Said the Piggy, "I will."
So they took it away, and were married next day
By the Turkey who lives on the hill.
They dined on mince and slices of quince,
Which they ate with a runcible spoon;



And hand in hand on the edge of the sand
They danced by the light of the moon,
The moon,
The moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.

The Owl and the Pussycat - 1871 - by Edward Lear
About the Author:EDWARD LEAR - b1812 London, England--d.1888,Italy 

The twentieth child of Jeremiah Lear, a London stockbroker, and his wife Ann, Lear grew up to become a prolific writer as well as a talented artist of both landscapes and birds . Lear also gave drawing lessons to Queen Victoria of England. Lear was particularly enchanted with nonsense poetry, and devoted a number of his books to collections of such poems as this;

 


Portrait by 
Wilhelm Marstrand
There was an Old Man with a beard, Who said, 'It is just as I feared! 
Two Owls and a Hen, 
Four Larks and a Wren, 
Have all built their nests 
in my beard!'
Lear is perhaps best known for his whimsical poem, The Owl and the Pussycat. 
Edward Lear had begun to pen the sequel, The Children of The Owl and the Pussycat, but sections of the poem still remained incomplete at the time of his death in 1888. The portion that was complete, was published posthumously (meaning, after his death) in 1938. 

It begins;

The Children of the Owl and the Pussycat
Our mother was the Pussy-cat, 
our father was the Owl, 
And so we're partly little beasts 
and partly little fowl, 

The brothers of our family
have feathers and they hoot, 
While all the sisters dress in fur 
and have long tails to boot. *
