Woodrow Wilson – 28th President of the United States – Changed the World

He Did Not Win At Everything

His life-prize was to be the League of Nations. He did not win that prize, in the end. But he did a great deal of good anyway, he changed the world.

First Name – Did You Know? – Was ThomasWoodrow Wilson 1

Thomas Woodrow Wilson, born December 28, 1856, died February 3, 1924, was the presidential  from 1913 to 1921. A leader of the Progressive Movement, he had served as President of Princeton University from 1902 to 1910.

He was Governor of New Jersey from 1911 to 1913. With the Republican Party split in 1912, he led his Democratic Party to control both the White House and Congress for the first time in nearly two decades.

Some of the Good He Accomplished

In his first term as President, Wilson persuaded Congress to pass a legislative agenda that few presidents have equaled, remaining unmatched up until the New Deal in 1933. This agenda included the Federal Reserve Act, Federal Trade Commission Act, the Clayton Antitrust Act, the Federal Farm Loan Act and an income tax.

Child labor was curtailed by the Keating–Owen Act of 1916, but the U.S. Supreme Court declared it unconstitutional in 1918. Wilson also had Congress pass the Adamson Act, which imposed an 8-hour workday for railroads.

Woodrow Wilson 3

Although considered a modern liberal visionary giant as President, Wilson was “deeply racist in his thoughts and politics” and his administration racially segregated federal employees and the Navy.

The War To End All Wars

Narrowly re-elected in 1916 around the slogan, “He kept us out of war”, Wilson’s second term was dominated by American entry into World War I. While American non-interventionist sentiment was strong, American neutrality was challenged in early 1917 when the German Empire began unrestricted submarine warfare despite repeated strong warnings.

In April 1917, Wilson asked Congress to declare war in order to make “the world safe for democracy.” During the war, Wilson focused on diplomacy and financial considerations, leaving the waging of the war itself primarily in the hands of the Army.

On the home front in 1917, he began the United States’ first draft since the American Civil War; borrowed billions of dollars in war funding through the newly established Federal Reserve Bank and Liberty Bonds; set up the War Industries Board; promoted labor union cooperation; supervised agriculture and food production through the Lever Act; took over control of the railroads; and gave a well-known Flag Day speech that fueled the wave of anti-German sentiment sweeping the country.Woodrow Wilson 2

Stroke Ended His Presidency

In the late stages of the war, Wilson took personal control of negotiations with Germany, including the armistice. In 1918, he issued his Fourteen Points, his view of a post-war world that could avoid another terrible conflict. In 1919, he went to Paris to add the formation of a League of Nations to the Treaty of Versailles, with special attention on creating new nations out of defunct empires.

During an intense fight with Henry Cabot Lodge and the Republican-controlled Senate over giving the League of Nations power to force the U.S. into a war, Wilson suffered a severe stroke that left his wife largely in control of the White House until he left office in March 1921.

For his sponsorship of the League of Nations, Wilson was awarded the 1919 Nobel Peace Prize.

Not Everyone Who Changes the World Has Success Every Try

I understand that some folks don’t start out to change the world because they are afraid of failure. I can empathize. Failure hurts. Failure feels humiliating.

Yet, it is those who face the possibility of failure, or even actual failure itself, who make a real difference. Woodrow Wilson attempt to establish a world body, The League of Nations, to help extend peace and democracy to the world set the stage for the United Nations some years later. Sometimes it takes an idea some time to bear fruit. Some blossoms never turn into apples.

$100,000 Bill
$100,000 Bill

Are going to let that stop you? I hope not. I hope you will face your fear of failure and move on. Move on to change the world. You have that opportunity. You deserve that opportunity. The world deserves that opportunity.

Never Heard of Her – Ada E. Yonath – But She Changed the World – All By Herself

Another Unknown – Crystallographer

Ada E. Yonath was born on June 2, 1939 and is an Israeli crystallographer best known for her pioneering work on the structure of the ribosome.

Nobel Prize – “No Big Deal”

She is the current director of the Helen and Milton A. Kimmelman Center for Biomolecular Structure and Assembly of the Weizmann Institute of Science. In 2009, she received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry along with Venkatraman Ramakrishnan and Thomas A. Steitz for her studies on the structure and function of the ribosome.

That made her the first Israeli woman to win the Nobel Prize out of ten Israeli Nobel laureates, the first woman from the Middle East to win a Nobel prize in the sciences, and the first woman in 45 years to win the Nobel Prize for Chemistry.

However, she said herself that there was nothing special about a woman winning the Prize.

Degrees

She attended college in Jerusalem, graduating from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry in 1962, and a master’s degree in biochemistry in 1964. In 1968, she earned a Ph.D. in X-Ray crystallography at the Weizmann Institute of Science.

Yonath accepted postdoctoral positions at Carnegie Mellon University (1969) and MIT (1970). While a postdoc at MIT she spent some time in the lab of subsequent 1976 chemistry Nobel Prize winner William N. Lipscomb, Jr. of Harvard University where she was inspired to pursue very large structures.

Crystallography

Yonath focuses on the mechanisms underlying protein biosynthesis, by ribosomal crystallography, a research line she pioneered over twenty years ago despite considerable skepticism of the international scientific community.

Ribosomes translate RNA into protein and because they have slightly different structures in microbes, when compared to eukaryotes, such as human cells, they are often a target for antibiotics. She determined the complete high-resolution structures of both ribosomal subunits and discovered within the otherwise asymmetric ribosome, the universal symmetrical region that provides the framework and navigates the process of polypeptide polymerization.

Consequently she showed that the ribosome is a ribozyme that places its substrates in stereochemistry suitable for peptide bond formation and for substrate-mediated catalysis. Two decades ago she visualized the path taken by the nascent proteins, namely the ribosomal tunnel, and recently revealed the dynamics elements enabling its involvement in elongation arrest, gating, intra-cellular regulation and nascent chain trafficking into their folding space.

What Does That Mean?

Simply – this understand helps persons and companies develop effective drugs.

Yonath elucidated the modes of action of over twenty different antibiotics targeting the ribosome, illuminated mechanisms of drug resistance and synergism, deciphered the structural basis for antibiotic selectivity and showed how it plays a key role in clinical usefulness and therapeutic effectiveness, thus paving the way for structure-based drug design.

For enabling ribosomal crystallography Yonath introduced a novel technique, cryo bio-crystallography, which became routine in structural biology and allowed intricate projects otherwise considered formidable.

Perhaps You Prefer To Remain Enigmatic

Yes, you probably never heard her name, but you may well have been a “recepient” of her science. Perhaps you took an antibiotic to get over a sinus infection. Perhaps that antibiotic was develop using the techniques of crystallography.

Perhaps you would like to change the world but remain rather anonymous. I am being straightforward when I say you may feel yourself too shy to make a splash that souses the whole world.

That’s more than okay. It may be just what the world needed – someone to change it for the better but who does not rise to unwanted world-celebrity.

If you are such a person – get to changing the world in your own enigmatic way. We need all such persons as this.

Whether He Actually Existed Or Not -Jesus Of Nazareth – Changed the World

Peculiar Way To Begin

“Whether he existed or not” … is a peculiar way to start a blog on how one person can and did change the world. But there really is no objectiveJesus evidence that Jesus of Nazareth actually existed. Yes, there is mention of a person name Jesus in the works of a historian named Josephus. Yes, Roman senator and historian Tacitus wrote of the crucifixion of Jesus in the Annals, a history of the Roman Empire during the first century. But these are considered  subjective references because there is no corroborating evidence.

Avatar of God

I believe that Jesus of Nazareth did exist (subjective) and was an avatar of what we sometimes name God. Many of us know what avatars are these days, from their use on the World Wide Web in games and as stand-ins for personal pictures on websites and the like.

An avatar directly represents a person but is not the person. As avatars these images or figures may even have a very similar significance to the original. In other words, loosely speaking, these avatars may have similar powers to the originals.

These powers were gifted to Jesus.

By the way, if Jesus of Nazareth did actually exist, his name would have been Jesus bar Joseph, or Jesus ben Joseph, after his father who was supposed to be Joseph. That’s how it was done in those days.

Never Traveled Far

He never went beyond 100 miles of his hometown, Nazareth. He probably never went to Egypt with his parents as the “slaughter of the innocents” as portrayed in the New Testament never occurred. Yes, it occurred in Egypt centuries before and was portrayed by some biblical writers as happening again to give Jesus’ life and meaning even more legitimacy.

He never raised an army or navy. He never ran for or ever held public office. Yet he changed the world. With the force of his personality and what he represented in himself, he changed the way many, many people look at themselves even to this day.

He Was Executed

Because he spoke against the local powers that were in his day, he was executed through a mock trial. He was examined and no crime was found in him, save what his enemies said he said and represented what they said he represented.

It was said that he rose from the dead and went to heaven. In fact, what actually happened to his body is not known. First, we really do not know if he ever lived, for sure. Second, if he lived then where is he buried? (There are two burials places “listed” as the place of his interment.)

Following the custom of the day, his body would have been thrown into a pauper’s grave along with many other bodies being disposed of on that day. If his bones existed, they would be mixed up with the bones of many others. If he was lucky enough to be buried with family, the dried out bones would be moved farther and farther back in the family grave as newly deceased family members’ bones were placed in the common grave.

So the Myths and Legends Grew

One such myth was that he ascended to heaven 40 days after arising from the dead. He was exalted. Giving more credence to the idea of his saving ability. All this to “show” that he was The Son of God.

As Son of God he had the power to forgive sins as those of his time and centuries after have gifted him with. He could make the world right again. Those who walked in darkness had seen a great light in him. People could be born again in his name and love.

Whatever Else He Was or Was Not

By the forcefulness of his personality, the way he stood up to the intrenched people and ideas of his day, he set in motion a new way of thinking for the Western hemisphere of this earth.

His ideas of love first caused a revolution that is still having an effect today.

I believe he was an avatar of God showing what love really is – the acceptance of all, the unconditional regard for another. I believe he was a profoundly advanced soul who reincarnated back on Earth to show a different way. He probably knew his earthly end would not be pain-free, knew he would be despised and rejected by some.

Yet he voluntarily came to Earth to be what he was and to give what he gave. When his earthly life was ended, his spirit return to the space between incarnations. To live there forever as a most advanced soul. Or to live there forever, in spirit, unless he chose, once again, to incarnate on Earth and help his fellow souls advanced toward enlightenment.

We Are All Sons and Daughters of God

We are the very stuff of which Jesus was “made.” We are spirit of the Spirit; we are all One. The only difference between us and Jesus in the advancement of our souls. We reincarnate countless times over eons of time to advance toward enlightenment and the understanding of God.

This is what Jesus did for us above all else. He showed us all “where” we might be as we advanced our souls toward enlightenment. He climbed the mountain, so to speak, before us, showing us it can be done. We need only follow in his path. One person changed the world. One person changed your life. Will you carry on?

A Woman From Brooklyn, New York – Barbra Streisand – Changed the World With Her Voice

Given Name  – Barbara Joan Streisand – Born April 24, 1942Barbra Striesand 5

Music is a universal language and one of the best interpreters of vocal music there has ever been is Barbra Streisand, in my opinion. I know that she changed my life forever with her rendition of “People Who Need People.”

She started signing professional at a relatively young age – still in her teens. She had a certain style that was all her own. Some tried to talk her out of that style saying she needed to be more conventional. She did it her way and made music history. She has had the last laugh in that regard as she is the most highly decorated female singer in history.

Her career has now spanned 50 years. She can still stop a show, in my opinion, as my wife and I watched her performance in “Back to Brooklyn.”

With her 2009 album, Love Is the Answer, she became one of the rare artists to achieve number-one albums in five consecutive decades.

Perhaps the Last of Her Kind

Barbra Striesand 4She is labeled a “belter” of songs. Meaning, I believe, that she can really fill the hall with her voice, even without electronic amplification. Such a style marked her career well.

Though she can sing songs in softer ways as well. In her prime, there was nothing she could not sing, in a popular way (she has not done Rock ‘n’ Roll).

Even at age 71 (at this writing), with only some of the power gone, she can still move an audience to tears as she interprets a song.

To have such influence over so long a period of time is to truly change the world.

Her Life Is More Than Song

Her first film was a reprise of her Broadway hit, Funny Girl (1968), an artistic and commercial success directed by Hollywood veteran William Wyler. Streisand won the 1968 Academy Award for Best Actress for the role, sharing it with Katharine Hepburn (The Lion in Winter), the only time there has been a tie in this Oscar category.

Her next two movies were also based on musicals, Jerry Herman’s Hello, Dolly!, directed by Gene Kelly (1969); and Alan Jay Lerner’s and Burton Lane’s On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, directed by Vincente Minnelli (1970); while her fourth film was based on the Broadway play The Owl and the Pussycat (1970).Barbra Striesand 2

Along with Paul Newman, Sidney Poitier and later Steve McQueen, Streisand formed First Artists Production Company in 1969, so the actors could secure properties and develop movie projects for themselves. Streisand’s initial outing with First Artists was Up the Sandbox (1972).

Many Sides

Streisand has long been an active supporter of the Democratic Party and many of its causes.

In 1971, Streisand was one of the celebrities listed on President Richard Nixon’s infamous Enemies List.

Streisand is a supporter of gay rights, and in 2007 helped raise funds in an unsuccessful attempt to defeat Proposition 8 in California.

In 1984, Streisand donated the Emanuel Streisand Building for Jewish Studies to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, in the Mount Scopus campus, in memory of her father, an educator and scholar who died when she was young.

Streisand has personally raised $25 million for organizations through her live performances. The Streisand Foundation, established in 1986, has contributed over $16 million through nearly 1,000 grants to “national organizations working on preservation of the environment, voter education, the protection of civil liberties and civil rights, women’s issues and nuclear disarmament.”

Barbra Striesand 3In 1984, Streisand was awarded the Women in Film Crystal Award for outstanding women who, through their endurance and the excellence of their work, have helped to expand the role of women within the entertainment industry.

She also received the National Medal of Arts in 2000 and the Kennedy Center Honors in 2008. She was inducted as an officer of France’s Legion of Honour in 2007. She was accorded An Honorary Doctorate In Arts and Humanities by Brandeis University in 1995 and an Honorary Doctorate of Philosophy by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 2013.

In that year, she was also recipient of  the Charles Chaplin lifetime achievement award by the Film Society of Lincoln Center as the only female artist who directed, wrote, produced and starred in the same major studio film (Yentl).

There You Have It – In Very Abbreviated Form

Barbra Streisand has had major influence upon her world. Thereby changing it forever. You can see what you can do following your own style and determining to succeed at whatever you choose. What are you waiting for?Barbra Striesand 1

Nelson Mandela – Madiba – Surely This One Person Changed the World

Born July 18, 1918 – Died December 5, 2013

Nelson MandelaCan you see it? Can you finally believe that one person can change the world? By this man’s life you must see that a singe individual human being can be such a force as to change the world for all time hence.

The father of his “new” nation, South Africa, spent 27 years in prison after having been sentenced to life in prison for what was called treason. He simply wanted to have all the people of his nation have the same opportunities – for example, the right to vote – as all other citizens.

He labor under the oppressive rule of what was called apartheid, as did the majority of citizens of South Africa. It was an onerous system where black Africans were subject to conditions and circumstances that worked against even their human dignity.

A Prison Does Not A Cage Make – Unless You Allow It So

During those 27 years in prison Mandela learned Afrikaans – the language of the minority of white South Africans. Later this helped him communicate effective with the minority. He also befriended one of his jailors which helped him and the jailor grow into even better men than they were.Nelson Mandela 2

He kept in touch with his family by writing the one letter a week he was allowed to pen. It is said that the family cherishes these letters very deeply.

When he was released from prison, he was not bitter but immediately sought for peace among the people of his nation. Perhaps his prison days were his time in the wilderness where he learned and grew into the man that would lead his country, in peace, to a new age.

Much Has Been Written

So much has already been written of him and I am sure there will be much more to come. Even the Wikipedia.org article, from which I gleaned some information, is very large. I encourage you to look for yourself if you want to know about Mandela.

Not all of his life before prison was rosy. He was even on the U. S. Terrorist watch list until 2008. He met with communist leaders in other countries which made him suspect in some eyes. He openly criticized President Bill Clinton but later supported him during the impeachment proceedings.

When His Country Needed Him He Answered the Call

He even had the brilliant idea of uniting his country when it was about to fall into chaos and perhaps civil war by having the World Cup of Rugby come to South Africa and encouraged the South African national team to do its best to win the cup. It did.

I Could Go On and On

I think you get the drift here, though. Right before your eyes if you are 20 years old or older, you have seen history made at the leadership of a single person. He wasn’t perfect; none of us humans are. But he did change South Africa and therefore the world by the strength of his ideas and convictions and talent, developed through prison time, I believe, which drew a nation of disparate beliefs and ideologies and heavy prejudice, he drew that nation together.Nelson Mandela 3

If you want more information on Nelson Mandela please surf the Net at your leisure. You will find and abundance of material.

You Don’t Have To Save Your Nation

But then again, maybe you do. My point is that Nelson Mandela, a single individual, changed the world.

What are you doing for your world? When will you start?

Golda Meir – Raised in the United States – Became Prime Minister of Israel and Changed the World

Pogrom

Golda Mabovitch (her birth name) was born on May 3, 1898, in Kiev, Russian Empire, present-day Ukraine. Meir wrote in her autobiography that her earliest memories were of her father boarding up the front door in response to rumors of an imminent pogrom. She had two sisters, Golda Meir 3Sheyna and Tzipke, as well as five other siblings who died in childhood. She was especially close to Sheyna.

She immigrated to the U.S. in 1906, with her mother and sisters.

Watch the Store

Golda’s mother  ran a grocery store on Milwaukee’s north side, where by age eight Golda had been put in charge of watching the store when her mother went to the market for supplies. Golda attended the Fourth Street Grade School (now Golda Meir School) from 1906 to 1912. A leader early on, she organized a fund raiser to pay for her classmates’ textbooks.

After forming the American Young Sisters Society, she rented a hall and scheduled a public meeting for the event. She went on to graduate as valedictorian of her class, despite not knowing English at the beginning of her schooling.

At 14, she studied at North Division High School and worked part-time. Her mother wanted her to leave school and marry, but she rebelled. She bought a train ticket to Denver, Colorado, and went to live with her married sister, Sheyna Korngold.

The Korngolds held intellectual evenings at their home, where Meir was exposed to debates on Zionism, literature, women’s suffrage, trade unionism, and more. In her autobiography, she wrote: “To the extent that my own future convictions were shaped and given form […] those talk-filled nights in Denver played a considerable role.”

In Denver, she also met Morris Meyerson (December 17, 1893 – May 25, 1951), a sign painter, whom she later married on December 24, 1917.

Zionism and Husband

While at the Folks Schule, she came more closely into contact with the ideals of Labor Zionism. In 1913 she had begun dating Morris Meyerson. She was a committed Labor Zionist and he was a dedicated socialist. Together, they left their jobs to join a kibbutz in Palestine in 1921.

Kibbutz

In the British Mandate of Palestine, Meir and her husband joined a kibbutz. Her duties included picking almonds, planting trees, working in the chicken coops, and running the kitchen. Recognizing her leadership abilities, the kibbutz chose her as its representative to the Histadrut, the General Federation of Labor.Golda Meir 2 - Copy

In 1924, Meir and her husband left the kibbutz and resided briefly in Tel Aviv before settling in Jerusalem. There they had two children, their son Menachem (born 1924) and their daughter Sarah (born 1926).

In 1928, Meir was elected secretary of Moetzet HaPoalot (Working Women’s Council), which required her to spend two years (1932–34) as an emissary in the United States. The children went with her, but her husband stayed in Jerusalem.

Many Ministries

Golda was each of the following at one time or another in her political career:

∙    Minister of Labor
∙    Minister of Foreign Affairs
∙    Minister of Internal Affairs
∙    4th Prime Minister of Israel

Death and Burial

On December 8, 1978, Meir died of lymphatic cancer in Jerusalem at the age of 80. Four days later, on December 12, Meir was buried on Mount Herzl in Jerusalem.

Aftermath of the Munich Olympics

In the wake of the Munich massacre at the 1972 Summer Olympics, Meir appealed to the world to “save our citizens and condemn the unspeakable criminal acts committed”. Outraged at the perceived lack of global action, she ordered the Mossad to hunt down and assassinate suspected leaders and operatives of Black September and PFLP, some of which attack the Israeli Olympians.Golda Meir 1 - Copy

How She Change the World Single-handedly?

She did it with the force of her will and perseverance. She was one of the first female prime ministers in the world. She therefore led by example. She held her convictions even in the face of much (one might say “brutal”) opposition.

Now, what are you doing to change your world? You have will and you have perseverance, or you can surely develop them. Those two are all you need to get started. So …, get to it.

99th Mayor of New York City – Fiorello La Guardia – Changed the World

Born With a Name Unfamiliar to Most

Fiorello La GuardiaFiorello Henry LaGuardia was born Fiorello Enrico La Guardia) on December 11, 1882. He died September 20, 1947. He was the 99th Mayor of New York City for three terms from 1934 to 1945 as a Republican. Previously he had been elected to Congress in 1916 and 1918, and again from 1922 through 1930.

Irascible, energetic, and charismatic, he craved publicity and is acclaimed as one of the three or four greatest mayors in American history. Only five feet tall, he was called “the Little Flower” (Fiorello is Italian for “little flower”).

LaGuardia, a Republican who appealed across party lines, was very popular in New York during the 1930s. As a New Dealer, he supported President Franklin D. Roosevelt, a Democrat, and in turn Roosevelt heavily funded the city and cut off patronage from LaGuardia’s foes. La Guardia (variously spelled LaGuardi and La Guardia) revitalized New York City and restored public faith in City Hall.

He unified the transit system, directed the building of low-cost public housing, public playgrounds, and parks, constructed airports, reorganized the police force, defeated the powerful Tammany Hall political machine, and reestablished merit employment in place of patronage jobs.

So Much Power

The intemperate mayor was rough on his staffers and left no doubt who was in charge. He lost his intuitive touch during the war years, when the federal money stopped flowing in, and never realized that he had created far more infrastructure than the city could afford.

He “represented a dangerous style of personal rule hitched to a transcendent purpose”, according to Thomas Kessner, LaGuardia’s biographer, adding that today, “people would be afraid of allowing anybody to take that kind of power.”

Stole a Loaf of Bread

According to Try and Stop Me by Bennett Cerf, LaGuardia often officiated in municipal court. He handled routine misdemeanor cases, including, as Cerf wrote, a woman who had stolen a loaf of bread for her starving family.

LaGuardia insisted on levying the fine of ten dollars. Then he said “I’m fining everyone in this courtroom fifty cents for living in a city where a person has to steal bread in order to eat!” He passed a hat and gave the fines to the defendant, who left the court with $47.50.Fiorello La Guardia 2

A Series of Facts

LaGuardia was the director general for the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration (UNRRA) in 1946.

A man of short stature, LaGuardia’s height is sometimes given as 5 feet 0 inches. According to an article in the New York Times, however, his actual height was 5 feet 2 inches.

He became a member of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia music fraternity.

He died of pancreatic cancer in his home at 5020 Goodridge Avenue, in the Riverdale section of the Bronx at the age of 64 and is interred at Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx.

Historians have recognized La Guardia as among the best mayors in New York City history and perhaps among the greatest in modern U.S. history.

He Made Mistakes

While FDR funneled money into city in return for LaGuardia’s support, LaGuardia built up a fabulous infrastructure. When WW II came along, unemployment was ended within the city because uniforms were made by the garment industry and ships were produced at the shipyard.

But the federal money for the city dried up. LaGuardia and those who were mayor after him, realized there was not enough money to support the infrastructure any longer. He had to struggle to make the city’s ends meet.

Nevertheless, he changed the world by the force of his personal charisma and drive.

The United States Postal Service honored him with a 14¢ postage stamp in 1972. In 1940, La Guardia received The Hundred Year Association of New York’s Gold Medal Award “in recognition of outstanding contributions to the City of New York.”

So What Are You Doing To Change Your City?

Once again, you do not have to be the flamboyant mayor of a major US city to make a difference. You do need to do something. You are hard wired for compassion, for example.

How are you using that wiring? Been compassionate lately? Fiorello LaGuardia did marvelous things for the people of New York City – he was perhaps their greatest mayor. Could you be a better citizen in your city or town or area? Yes, you can. Get to it.
