Martin Luther King: the man who defied racism!
So Martin Luther King. Who is he? So he was a man who protested against racism: whites vs blacks, violence of black and discrimination of blacks.
Martin Luther King was born to a modest family, he was born in Alabama and this was the state he would have protested most against (his own city!). Martin Luther King was a powerful speaker and could persuade big crowds into following him to the path to non-violence.
So it all began when King was restricted from playing at the kids' playground, he came home that day and it was the first time his mom explained racial injustice told him...
At school he was not allowed to eat with whites and was bullied and physically abused; he was interested in sociology and medicine, which only whites used to learn at the time. His father was distressed after hearing him that he was interested in this. At college he was a brilliant student, although he was still verbally, physically and mentally abused and bullied. It was from then onward that he decided to dedicate his life to anti-racism.
After graduation, began his lifelong work, he started protesting and was put in jail multiple times for doing this. At the time, Martin Luther Kind was already married to Correta Scott who was his wife, she couldn't help but call the White House, and the phone was picked up by Robert Kennedy, John F Kennedy's brother, and in case you don't know who John F Kennedy, he was a president of the USA.
Martin Luther gave many speeches and started a lot of protests and ended up killing many of his friends, but these losses turned out to be huge gains in the end. Martin mourned at the losses but could do nothing to get them back, King continued his journey and in the end, he did successfully achieve this goal in many states and one day after his most important speech... he was assassinated the day after. His killer tried to escape but was caught and three days later confessed killing King, the killer's name was James Earl Ray and was caught using a fraud passport and a different name.
At King's funeral, hundreds of people mourned his death, and even Robert Kennedy had sent his man to observe the funeral, he didn't go assuming riots would have begun. At his funeral, Albernathy - a close friend of his, gave his speech and this day would be remembered forever.
P.S - He also received a Nobel Prize for Peace...

Albert Einstein: the man who changed the future!
So before we talk about Einstein and all that, we should know where he was born. So he was born in Ulm, Germany in 1879 to a very modest family. His parents were both very caring and even after all this, he spoke his first word at the age of three. His parents were shocked when they heard him speak, they asked him why he had spoken and in a very calm and gentle manner, he replied 'till now everything was in order, so i didn't have to speak', his parents were in awe from that day onward. His youth years were the building blocks for his career and he got interested in science, when his father showed him a compass. He was amazed and instantly fell in love with science, he loved it because it always pointed to the north. From that day onward, he started looking at science as a passion not as a subject. His school years were a bit sad as his family had to move to and fro from Switzerland, Italy and Germany. He hated his school life since the teachers were very strict and boring. Then came his college years, he was a brilliant student and he preferred learning through a heuristic approach rather than theoretical, he studied at the Zurich Polytechnic - a brilliant college at the time, there he met his future wife, Mileva Maric, they both spent a lot of time together and studied a lot. In 1903, the couple married and had their first child soon after. Then came Einstein's most important year:1905, in this year he published four papers, these four papers would revolutionize science and almost the whole world. The four papers were on Brownian motion, the photoelectric effect, light as a form of energy and relativity. Even publishing one of these papers would have revolutionized science, but Einstein did all four! In 1921, Einstein got awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics. Ironically, he wasn't awarded for the relativity paper, but for the photoelectric effect. He received this award in 1922, then he kept writing papers and until 1950, none of his life is very irrelevant except the fact that he contributed greatly in the production of the atom bomb which he had worked on to kill Hitler, Einstein was a very peaceful person but after what Hitler had done, he felt that it was something necessary to do this. He also reduced partiality between Israel and Syria, he was even offered the post of a president, a role he turned down! As his fame grew, he got many friends as well as enemies, Max Planck had invited him to teach, and the legendary Niels Bohr and Paul Dirac were against him. In 1950, came his last years, he hired a secretary to take care of him wherever he went (due to the war and his sickness) he had shifted to Princeton and taught there. He died in April 1955 and it the was day that the world would never forget, a picture of his desk with the unfinished paper lay as a symbol for the future, at least we think of it as that, but who knows what it signifies?
Steve Jobs: the man who made the future!
Have you ever heard of Steve Jobs? You might have probably heard of him as the co-founder of Apple along with Steve Wozniak. But what else did he start? Read this article to find out more...
So it all began in 1955, when Jobs was born to a Syrian Muslim immigrant and an American mother suddenly they both divorced, due to unknown reasons. Then he was adopted by Clara and Paul Jobs and his father was a machinist who worked on laser technologies and was a genius at it, sometimes also referred to as 'Edison of laser works'. We will skip his teenage and young adult years but skip on to the time when Apple started.
Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs partnered together to start Apple Inc. on the 1st of April, 1976 and they soared. Their first revolutionary product was launched in 1984 when they launched the "Macintosh", it was a ground-breaking project and was very successful. The original Macintosh looked more like a box but then from a box worth hundreds of dollars, now it is worth thousands and thousands of dollars
Since it was the first product ever launched, it did not become instantly successful but it developed over a period of years and apple computer now is completely transformed and has nothing that looks that the original Macintosh
Apple now is worth trillions of dollar and is one of the most successful companies in the world right now.
Well, you might think that Steve Jobs only started Apple, but ever heard of Pixar, the movie company. Steve Jobs also started that, but it was not that successful until his death, although many popular movies was made when he was alive including: The Incredibles (2004), Finding Nemo (2003), Toy Story 2 (1999) and Toy Story (1995). These movies have been watched hundreds of millions of times and they will always be remembered forever...
