As Albert Einstein once said, “The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.” This logic is what sparked the creation of the popular inventions of the 1950’s. Even though some inventions of this decade may not be around today, they still have a significance on inventions and thinking today. There are plenty of inventions that we use in modern time. Some examples are the Barbie Doll, Diet Soda, and today’s most popular fast food chain McDonalds. There were many types of inventions in the 1950’s such as technological, medical, and other inventions that are still used today.

In the last book, The Dull Knifes of Pine Ridge, one can picture how the Sioux and Whites are almost forced to work together. It was World War I that brought these two groups together. This was the time period in which some Natives were earning citizenship. Although not all were citizens yet, the Sioux still had the option of enlisting in the draft for the war. An illustration on page 203 gives an idea of just how many Native Americans entered the draft. “Based on war department estimates, more than seventeen thousand Indians registered for the draft in World War I. Of the nine thousand who eventually served, more than half had volunteered and an estimated three quarters were not US citizens” (p 203). The Whites used the Sioux to their
Majority of us guy’s go to a barbershop to get a sharp haircut or just to kick back and get a laugh out of all the crazy and funny story’s that customers or barbers like to share. At times that barber can be a role model to us younger gentlemen because some of us might of grew up without a father figure in are life and he could show a positive example of what a hardworking man should be or basically just because he is a man’s best friend because that 30-45 minute haircut could include some of the best advice that you have ever received from another person. But one thing that 50% of us didn’t know that Barber’s in the early ages were Barber surgeons, which meant that they were surgeons and also dentists performing most of the duty’s that a normal dentist or surgeon would do now a days. So that’s why I decided to do my Research paper on how barbering has changed over the year’s! I’ve spent various amount of hours shadowing barbers who are veterans in the barber business and well known and respected among the barber community and also been attending barber battles and competition’s around the Bay Area just so I can see the different types of styles a certain type of crowd might have over a certain crowd and to experience that real barber brother and sister connection there is that is well known and respected among different barbers nation and country wide. With this experience of shadowing barbers and spending time in barbershops I’ve seen the art of barbering is a beauty many
King Camp Gillette was born in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin in 1855. At the early age of 16 he became a traveling salesman where he met William Painter, the inventor of the disposable Crown Cork bottle cap. This friendship ignited Gillette’s passion for invention and entrepreneurship. In 1895 he had an idea of a disposable razor blade. The problem was how to make the blades thin enough and at a price low enough to be profitable. Then in 1901 Gillette met an MIT graduate by the name of William Nickerson and the idea and dream became a reality. The Gillette Safety Razor Company began making safety razors and blades.

The case points out that Gillette’s competitors were quick to copy new products. The launch of Sensor will be a breakthrough in the market and will introduce a new product category the “cartridge laser cut razor with superior quality”. Therefore it is essential for Gillette to protect their new product by pursuing patent enforcement, as they already have. This way will Gillette retain its competitive advantage and will re-introduce and position itself as a technology leader.
The history of the coiffures of the XVIII century is particularly interesting, and many scholars consider this century to be “a century of women”. It is a time of sophistication, mannerism, simplicity and unimaginable complex coiffures at the same time. Hair has always been a reflection of general trends in fashion and Rococo style defines the accents in the XVIII century. The most stylish womеn managed to wear stuffed birds, statues and even mini-gardens with tiny artificial tree on their heads. The well-known and beloved A-la Belle Poule hair model with the famous frigate also belongs to this time. Such a design could take the whole day and coiffure itself could be worn for several days and sometimes even a week. After becoming a Queen, Marie
I am ashamed to have to check yes for this, but I was suspended for four days in the fourth grade. Back then, my parents were still working a lot, so I stayed at my aunt and uncle's house after school and on most weekends since they live across the street. My cousins were much younger and they loved to surprise me by hiding things in my bookbag and with other things I would bring over. One day they had found a pocketknife-- the type with bottle openers, corkscrews, and scissors-- and slipped it into my bookbag, under my books. I had found it one day on the bus when I was going to do my homework and showed it to a new friend, thinking it was an interesting new thing, then forgot about it. I was curious and naive, so I did not once think of it
One category of magazine clippings that I chose to include was famous people. The first clipping in this category is Barack Obama. This picture is very important because he was our President and leader of the U.S. for eight years in a row. The next magazine clipping is a U.S soldier. He is important because he part of a group that fights and protects our country and our freedom. Another clipping is a picture of Vic Beasley. He's important because he use to play for the Clemson Tigers a while back and that was the team that won the 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship game. The last magazine clipping is an Alabama football player. This picture is meaningful because this team was in the National Championship game against the Clemson Tigers and they lost by 4 points.
Born in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin in 1855, King Camp Gillette learned from an early age the importance of self-sufficiency, innovation, and invention. After his family’s home was destroyed in the Chicago Fire of 1871, Gillette left home at 16 years of age to become a traveling salesman. His experiences in his position led him to William Painter, the inventor of the disposable Crown Cork bottle cap, who assured him that a successful invention was one that was purchased over and over again by a satisfied customer. In 1895, after several years of considering and rejecting possible inventions, Gillette suddenly had a brilliant idea while shaving one morning. It was an entirely new razor and blade that flashed in his mind—a razor with a safe, inexpensive, and disposable blade. According to reports, Gillette’s idea wasn’t immediately successful, as technical experts said it would be impossible to produce steel that was hard, thin, and inexpensive enough for commercial development of the disposable razor blade. However, in 1901, with the technical partnership of MIT graduate William Nickerson, Gillette produced the original Gillette safety razor and blade,
Old Spice Beard & Head Trimmer is a product manufactured by the famous company, Braun. Braun as a brand was introduced in the year 1935; since then it has been manufacturing high quality products; including male and female grooming devices, oral care, beauty products, clocks, watches, irons, and so many others. Braun shavers and trimmers are particularly famous among consumers for their design and quality.
Gillette is successful because the focus on the one thing they know and that is men. They understand what men need for their grooming needs, and their products are sold all over the world (P Kotler, 2017). Gillette’s popularity has worked because of several factors, including high-quality innovation, consumer research, and mass communications. With their research, and the fact they have kept improving their product, Gillette has made many breakthrough product innovations, which should allow their success to keep increasing. In 1971, there was the Trac II, the first twin-blade shaving system, then the Atra in 1977 there was a razor with a pivoting head, and then in 1989 they developed the Sensor the first razor with spring-mounted twin blades dubbed (P Kotler, 2017). In 1998, Gillette introduced the Mach3 it was the first triple-blade system, surpassed only by the 2006 launch of the six-blade Fusion, promoted as “the best shave on the planet.” (P Kotler, 2017) It is possible that Gillette can become as successful with Women as Men due to the fact Procter & Gamble acquired Gillette in 2005 and Procter & Gamble are experts at marketing to women, due to the fact most of their lines such as dishwashing liquid, laundry detergent, and hygiene products are aim for their woman clients.
