He used a hand bearing compass, pointed at a lighthouse or some other landmark and looked across the lubber’s line into the bowl, taking bearings of two or more objects, and reading the direction or bearing of that object, off of the compass. Then, he plotted them onto his chart. Where the lines crossed, was where he was. It was that simple. The GPS was for his clients. It made them feel better, not him.

He made many important discoveries and advancements. Most people warmed their homes by building a fire in a fireplace even though it was dangerous and required a lot of wood in the colonial times. Mr. Franklin thought that there had to be more efficient way. So he invented an iron furnace stove allowed people to warm their homes more carefully and without using as much wood. Ben Franklin became a postmaster of Philadelphia in 1737 and he needed a way design out routes for delivering the mail. He took a ride in his carriage to figure out the routes and needed a way to track of the distance. He then invented a odometer and mounted it to his carriage. With his genius for the practical, Mr. Franklin created a multitude of inventions, including
1915 Canadian Technological Events Tracer Bullets During the war, battles would continue into night but tended to be quite unproductive as you could not see where you were shooting. Tracer bullets were originally invented in 1915 as a way to create light while fighting late at night but the light trail was “erratic” and only lasted 100 meters. Finally in 1916, the .303 SPG Mark VIIG tracer bullets were invented. This version emitted a much brighter, green-white trail and was a great success during nighttime battles. One thing the British did not expect was for the trail to be flammable, this tracer bullet
The year is 1969. Richard M. Nixon’s first year as America’s 37th President has just begun; the Beatles have just released their iconic album and album cover, Abbey Road; most importantly, the Apollo 11 astronauts, Neil Armstrong and Edwin E. Aldrin, Jr., have taken the first step on the moon (“What” 1). Approximately 47 years ago when the world was beginning to modernize and spring to new heights, people’s interest for the place beyond Earth also emerged. This, then, prompted the U.S., amongst several other countries, to begin the race to space, marking the beginning of the long journey of space discoveries. Years later, with several environmentalists counting the days till Earth’s expiration day, it seems necessary that humans find an alternate
The meter was the idea of Carlton C. Magee, a local publisher and Room of the buying and selling of goods Traffic Committee chief, and he hoped it would solve the city's long-lasting parking problems. In the perimeter days, police would drive around with stopwatches and chalk, enforcing the city's parking time limits by marking the tires of cars seen squatting for too long, but the system was unprepared to handle the "commonly found in that place overparking" problem. Even worse, a survey found that at any given time, 80 percent of the city's spots were occupied by workers of downtown businesses--the very same businesses complaining that don't have of parking was driving away shoppers. Calling for an "producing a lot with very little waste, fair and unprejudiced, and completely practical aid to parking regulation," Magee held a student-design contest and launched his tool or object used to do work or measure something
How many 16ths of an inch are in a mile? How many fluid ounces in a cubic inch? What is the conversion factor between degrees celsius and degrees Fahrenheit? These are some of the terrible questions that plague only the minds of people in three countries in the world: the United States of America, Myanmar, and Liberia. All 193 of the other countries in the world use the metric system. The United States of America should convert to the metric system because of the following reasons: it is the global and scientific standard, it is much easier to use, not using it causes US consumers and businesses to lose money, and our lack of familiarity with it is part of the reason why our students lag so far behind much of the rest of the world in STEM

The use of bearings has been emerging in the society for a few years now. It is a lot more common to see people use bearings to find angles and work out where an object or area might be located. The use of a compass is also key in finding bearings as the compass shows the true north and from there the bearing of a point from another point can be calculated. It is key to always begin facing north is the bearing calculated is to be found in the true north format. The use of the Geographic Coordinate System is also a common use in society, this system uses two sets of numbers (longitude and latitude) to locate and identify every single spot of the Earth to a certain extent of decimal places. This is the most commonly used system to plot the coordinates of a place on Earth, it is also the most accurate system known to humanity.
