This Day in History:  1879 – Albert Enistein is born in Ulm, Germany.  Einstein’s theories would alter man’s view of the universe and his work in particle and energy theory would ultimately make possible the atomic bomb.

Fact of the Day: Einstein used his fame to speak out against militarism and war in the early 1930s.  This would make him an unpopular figure in his native Germany.  When Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of Germany in 1933, Einstein renounced his German citizenship and he fled to the United States, becoming a citizen in 1940.

Quote of the Day:

Did You Know?   In England, the Speaker of the House is not allowed to speak.
