Madam C. J. Walker

Madam C. J. Walker (born Sarah Breedlove; December 23, 1867 – May 25, 1919) was an American entrepreneur, philanthropist, and political and social activist. She is recorded as the first female self-made millionaire in America in the Guinness Book of World Records.[1] Multiple sources mention that although other women might have been the first, their wealth is not as well-documented.[1][2][3] Walker made her fortune by developing and marketing a line of cosmetics and hair care products for black women through the business she founded, Madam C. J. Walker Manufacturing Company. She became known also for her philanthropy and activism. She made financial donations to numerous organizations and became a patron of the arts. Villa Lewaro, Walker's lavish estate in Irvington, New York, served as a social gathering place for the African-American community. At the time of her death, she was considered the wealthiest African-American businesswoman and wealthiest self-made black woman in America.[4] Her name came as a re

United States Senate

The United States Senate is the upper chamber of the United States Congress, which, along with the United States House of Representatives—the lower chamber—constitutes the legislature of the United States. The Senate chamber is located in the north wing of the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. The composition and powers of the Senate are established by Article One of the United States Constitution.[1] The Senate is composed of senators, each of whom represents a single state in its entirety. Each state, regardless of its population size, is equally represented by two senators who serve staggered terms of six years. There being at present 50 states in the Union, there are currently 100 senators. From 1789 to 1913, senators were appointed by legislatures of the states they represented; they are now elected by popular vote, following the ratification of the Seventeenth Amendment in 1913. As the upper chamber of Congress, the Senate has several powers of advice and consent which are unique to it. These inclu

Thanks, New Jersey!  Why we have the Garden State to thank for regulated online gambling

Taking no prisoners along the way, Governor Chris Christie and New Jersey fought a battle to legalize online gambling and sports betting…and won. There has been a LOT of talk about sports betting and online gambling in the news over the last year. With 20 states having passed some form of legislation in the last 18 months, and the sheer volume of content that is flooding the airwaves on the topic, it is clear that the country is enamored with betting on their favorite teams and sports. Of course, the concept of betting on sports have been around for ages in the U.S., but until 2018, this was all being done under the table or via offshore-based sportsbooks that offered no protection for players. Enter Chris Christie.  As the Governor of a state that housed one of the two biggest casino cities (Atlantic City), Christie had to do something to help prop up the casinos that at one time were a travel destination for many on the east coast. With revenues falling and properties filing for bankruptcy, Christie and

Spanish flu

Spanish flu

The Spanish flu (also known as the 1918 flu pandemic[2]) was an unusually deadly influenza pandemic.[3] Lasting from January 1918 to December 1920, it infected 500 million people – about a quarter of the world's population at the time.[1] The death toll is estimated to have been anywhere from 17 million[4] to 50 million, and possibly as high as 100 million, making it one of the deadliest pandemics in human history, behind the Black Death.[5][6] To maintain morale, World War I censors minimized early reports of illness and mortality in Germany, the United Kingdom, France, and the United States.[7] Newspapers were free to report the epidemic's effects in neutral Spain, such as the grave illness of King Alfonso XIII, and these stories created a false impression of Spain as especially hard hit.[8] This gave rise to the name Spanish flu.[9][10] Historical and epidemiological data are inadequate to identify with certainty the pandemic's geographic origin, with varying views as to its location.[1] Most influenza o
