Edgar was born October 19, on the farm that Robert, his father, had established in , on the hills east of Wayne Avenue in Dayton. Edgar lost his appeal for farming and eventually turned to the trade practiced earlier by his father, that of building contracting. His father helped provide him with all the secrets of the trade and by the year of , he became a sole agent, becoming extremely successful at his craft.
In , because of his building contracts, he worked on railroad and turnpike construction projects and soon became an incorporator and secretary of the Dayton-Springfield Turnpike. By , he was one of the organizers of the Mad River and Lake Erie Railroad and was appointed superintendent. Edgar was an original subscriber to the Woodland Cemetery Association.

Ask a child to draw a mountain and you will get something like the Matterhorn. The shape of this famous mountain, situated on the Swiss-Italian border in the Alps, is one of the most iconic pictures of nature; almost a caricature of itself. The summit of the Matterhorn was first reached in Today, it is a popular destination for climbers. Each summer, guides take a large number of people up the route, which is equipped with fixed ropes. The …. Some days when we look in the mirror we like what we see, some days less so.

Remember Dolly, the first mammal to be successfully cloned from an adult somatic cell?
Her birth was announced in People tend to see clones as exact copies of the originals, but they are not. While their DNA is the same, as in monozygotic twins, variations in the environment can cause significant dissimilarities. Dolly lived to the age of six, giving birth "naturally" to a lamb named Bonnie, before being put down because of progressive lung disease and crippling arthritis. Valium, Prozac, Placebo, Viagra, Candy: can you say which one doesn't belong? Or, to rephrase the question: can you say exactly where the boundary lies between medicine and entertainment?
It is difficult to judge: both aim to increase quality of life. But what that means is arguably a matter of taste. The White House, seat and symbol of the US government, is built in a Roman style, which was in turn inspired by Greek architecture. At left, we see it applied in the Villa Rotonda, a building by the renaissance architect Paladdio. Different empires, same building. Recently the Chinese entrepreneur Huang Qiaoling 34th on Forbes' list of rich people in China had a replica of the White House built in his garden so he could meet business associates in the "Oval Office".
When the former football star and actor OJ Simpson was arrested for the murder of his ex-wife and her friend, both Newsweek and Time Magazine used the police mug shot on their cover. The case was racially charged from the start, because both victims were white and the accused was black. Polls and surveys at the time indicated that public opinion on whether Simpson was the murderer was split along racial lines. Time admitted it had intentionally darkened the Simpson …. Creating the perfect cup of espresso used to be an art form in itself. The beans had to be ground to exactly the right coarseness and the water pressure precisely controlled to obtain a delicious espresso with an impeccably formed layer of crema.

The portraits were then mixed into a virtual Miss Germany using computer graphic techniques. The picture at right is of the woman who later won the competition. Decide for yourself which beauty pleases you most. It's fascinating how stock traders can get so excited about a few abstract numbers on an electronic display. These numbers represent real money, and every small fluctuation can mean the difference between being rich or poor. What we usually don't realize is that money itself is already a virtual phenomenon: a representation of value constructed to replace the awkward, imprecise trading of physical goods.
Tomb Raider, featuring superwoman Lara Croft, was one of the most successful video games of its generation. Although many computer games had previously been created as spin-offs of Hollywood blockbusters, Tomb Raider was the first game to be taken as inspiration for a movie. The studio had to find an actress who resembled a 3D game character made of polygons. Luckily, Angelina Jolie turned out to be perfect for the role. Sunsets are loved by people all around the globe. Could this universal aesthetic preference be linked to a deeply rooted understanding of the sunset's importance?

Did you ever wonder why the letters on the keyboard are in the order they are? This order was chosen to reduce the probability that mechanical typewriters' hammers would get entangled.

Once a technology has become the norm, it seems …. Almost by default, we associate simulation with modern media: games and virtual reality. But what about the Phyllium giganteum? It is not a leaf but an insect disguised as one. But it is surely no accident. Countless other insects, flowers, and animals use camouflage or imitation techniques to increase their chances of survival. Simulation seems to be a natural phenomenon in life. For a long time in the history of painting, the landscape functioned merely as a backdrop for people, buildings or symbols.
But in the 17th century, artists started making paintings using the landscape as the central subject. The one shown here is the work of Pieter Molijn. Landscape paintings taught people to appreciate the landscape solely for its beauty. Today, this has resulted in the construction of mobile-phone antenna masts dressed up to look like trees.

Of course, I already knew all the products from the commercials, and when the burger came to the table, I remember thinking, "Ok, this is it then In ancient times, heroes like Marco Polo and Christopher Columbus explored unknown territories of the globe.

A sweet and innocent example of how media experiences tend to structure 'real-life' experiences. From our Fake for Real series. Cartoon characters fuel our imagination. For the duration of the book or movie, they supply us with an alternative playful identity; an escape from the dull monotonous everyday into a more joyful, colorful and creative life. For some, like for instance this Japanese girl dressed up as the Wikipedia mascotte Wikipe-tan, the flatness of the pictures just isn't enough. They are so captivated by these imaginative identities that they decide to live the life. Make them real.
The Lascaux cave conserves some of the first images created by man, dating back to around 15, BC. The depiction of large animals on the cave walls is considered as a preparation for the hunt; one of the earliest simulations conducted by man.

Nowadays we routinely delve into the virtual realities of television, internet, and videogames depicted right, a screenshot from the videogame Half-Life.

At the beginning of the digital era, several metaphors from the physical world were transferred to the digital environment in order to make, otherwise incomprehensible, technology understandable. The digital trashcan from the classic Mac OS is a well-known example. It's just so much easier to drag your documents into the trashcan to delete, rather than having to enter some series of obscure commands to obtain the same result.
It is true, they are rare, but they do exist: girls with tiny waists and large breasts. Occasionally, women are simply born like this.
