November 2, 2012 – it will be a day I’ll always remember for the rest of my life… a small town person had the chance to interview the First Lady of the United States – Michelle Obama – and broadcast that conversation to an audience in Milwaukee, WI. Without a doubt, the First Lady is brilliant, accomplished, and as classy a woman one will ever meet. She has done this nation proud in the way she has gone about her business while also raising two outstanding daughters. I hope you enjoy the interview as much as I enjoyed it.
The Oscar Award winning actress Octavia Spencer joined me on The Earl Ingram Show to talk about President Barack Obama.
There is no other Black Man of God who can go into ANY street, in ANY Black neighborhood and have the people respond to him as The Minister does. Here in Milwaukee, none of our Black Preachers would even think about knocking on doors and speaking to his or her own people.
I love you too much not to tell you the truth people, this BPA (Bisphenol A) is killing us! Why is a country as developed and advanced as America consistently producing citizens with inferior health? It’s the food and drinks the corporations poision us with! The US Government is involved in the scam and so is the healthcare system.
December 2, 1884: The telephone was invented by Granville T. Woods. His invention was far more superior to the invention of Alexander Graham Bell.
Born on April 23, 1856 in Columbus, Ohio, Granville T. Woods attended school sporadically until he was ten years old and then went to work in a machine shop. At sixteen, his wanderlust led to the augmentation of his elementary engineering knowledge via a series of related jobs and eventual formal training at an eastern college.
Despite his engineering skill and credentials, it was obvious to him that advancement in these jobs was virtually nil. Taking a proactive approach, he formed his own company, Woods’ Railway Telegraph Company, to produce and market his telegraph and other inventions.
During his lifetime, he held over thirty-five patents. More than a dozen of these patents were inventions for electric railways but most of them were focused on electrical control and distribution.
His most remarkable invention, however, was the induction telegraph, a system for communicating to and from moving trains. Woods successfully defended lawsuits against his patent—two by Thomas Edison and one by another inventor named Phelps. In the wake of his loss, Edison tried to offer Woods a job and buy his company, but his offer was flatly rejected. Edison upped the ante by offering Woods a partnership in one of his various companies, but Woods preferred to remain independent.
Woods’s inventions include:
- a device that coupled the function of the telephone and telegraph—purchased by Alexander Graham Bell
- an air-brake system—purchased by George Westinghouse
- the power system known as “the third rail”—a conductor of electricity set parallel to the subway’s tracks
- a thermostatically controlled egg incubator
I have only 3 hours each day to talk to the community about issues I believe you’ll find interesting and important. Sometimes I just cannot get to everything I want to say and share with you. This is why I have my website where I can share additional thoughts and information.
Fifty-five years ago today (December 1, 1955), Mother Rosa Parks refused to give her seat to a white man and thus energized the masses to come together for ALL of US. You all know the story.
I love you Mother Parks and thank you for being a soldier for our liberation and freedom.
Thank you for this!!!
