Well done. Lock him up.

On this day in 1866, Lucy Hobbs Taylor became the first woman to graduate from dental school.

Taylor was a teacher in Michigan for 10 years before deciding to pursue medicine. Because she was a woman, she was denied entry to various medical schools and denied entry to the Ohio College of Dental Surgery. The dean of that college agreed to offer her private study in the field and she took in sewing to pay for her lessons. She eventually opened her own dental office in 1861, a common practice at the time as very few dentists had degrees.
In November 1865 after serving patients for four years, she was admitted to the senior class of the Ohio College of Dental Surgery and graduated a year later.

She is recognized as a pioneer in opening the doors for women in dentistry. Each year the American Association of Women Dentists recognizes outstanding women in the profession by presenting the Lucy Hobbs Taylor Award.

Was it at 7pm or around 7pm, it can’t be both.

On this day in 1962, John Glenn became the first American to orbit the Earth. Glenn entered orbit in the Friendship 7 capsule at 17,544 miles per hour. He circled the earth three times on a mission that lasted about five hours. While in orbit, Glenn radioed back to mission control, “Zero G and I feel fine.” But his flight hit a snag when the ship’s automatic control system failed and a sensor indicated a loose heat shield. The nation held its breath as Glenn expertly maneuvered the Friendship 7 back to earth and splashed down into the Atlantic Ocean, about 800 miles southeast of Bermuda.
After his return, Glenn was hailed as a hero and given a ticker tape parade in New York City.

Isn’t is black history Month? Why aren’t you highlighting the amazing black women who made his flight possible?

I graduated and grew up in his home town. And watched them move his childhood home from where he grew up to its new location and make it a museum. When I was in 4 th grade I watched him go back into space and become the oldest man in space met him several times, very nice and smart man very proud of the history great place to live.

Well remember the day. I sat with a World Globe and followed as The TV was reporting it.

I remember this. It was my brother's birthday and we stayed home from school to watch it on TV. It turns out my Dad had some tiny part in the building of the capsule and couldn't tell anyone till it was over😳.

Watched it live from the Marine’s CO office, NAS Memphis

Remember this day well. Our sccoll did t own a tv. Hell we couldnt get a radio signal so the entire school (probably 900 to 1000 pupils in all 12 grades) walked about 2 miles to get high enough with about 15 transistor radios to listen. I also remember where i was at when JFK and Oswald were killed. Telling my age

I was fortunate to watch the launch... then, as radio reporter in Springfield, I interviewed him five times as he came through town campaigning for senate. Then the competing radio station reporter (who was my roommate)and I were sent to DC to cover the energy crisis. We went to his senate office and first thing out of his mouth was “I can’t believe you competing station reporters live together!” I then got to eat lunch with him years later at a Columbus event. A charmer! Love, Ann

This was Such a Big Deal back then!!!We got to watch it on tv in grade school!I was 8.

I remember this!!!

John Glenn. One of the last American heroes.

We were watching history, and we knew it...such bravery! 🚀

I remember watching with my dad.

Someone should make that into a poster!

Surely cctv was on

Robbed again????

Surely they’d have a cctv image of him?

Agree, we need to see cctv footage, these scumbags don't care about peoples feelings and how scary it is for staff and relatives of staff when they see what has happened, trouble is our justice system is useless, bring back bootcamp, sort them out and teach them some discipline, it will keep them off the streets and they will be too knackered to go out terrorising innocent people

Half of the males in the area fit that description

Bash cash I bet

If this is the stretch from Belle Vue roundabout to James Cook surprised it's taken so long for this event. It's like Wacky Races over there, people switch lanes without looking

Adam C Swithenbank

Absolutely brutal on that rd...had so many near misses with people switching lanes not looking properly and backing out that laybye near the shops...would not think it was a 30mph zone

And all the cars parking on the toad near the traffic lights causing motorists to swerve to miss them

Jade Hardman

Did it happen at 5.25pm or around 5.25pm. There is a world of difference.

Pictured here is American folk artist Elijah Pierce. Pierce was best known for his colorful panels and hand-carved figures illustrating biblical stories, African American history, politics, sports and pop culture.

The son of a former slave, Pierce was born in Mississippi in 1892 and like many other African Americans, migrated North to escape discrimination in the Jim Crow-era South. He settled in Columbus, Ohio in 1923, where he opened a barbershop on East Long Street. In between customers, Pierce would sit in his barber chair and carve, producing hundreds of pieces that he frequently gave away to friends or hung in his art gallery in an adjacent room. It wasn’t until 1971 when his talent was recognized nationally. Friends persuaded Pierce to exhibit his work at a senior citizens' art show. Soon after this show, Pierce’s work was displayed in art galleries in Philadelphia and New York, and in the Smithsonian Institution's Renwick Gallery, among others. His Columbus, Ohio shop is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. #BlackHistoryMonth

Yes on display in canton ohio right now! Amazing

He was a friend of my sister, an artist. I still remember his little studio on Long St.

Neat story ! Sounds like a very talented man !

Yes, I have seen his wonderful work. Columbus has a heart for him.

Class...... this is class at it’s best.

Will have to add this to our must see list!

Wow this is so cool, that's quite an accomplishment. I'm so glad to see his building has been preserved in a world that would prefer to just throw everything away.

My friend in grade school used to get his hair cut by him.

There is a large number of his pieces in the Columbus Museum of Art

“Saquon Barkley is deserving of being a top-five pick."

NFL Network's Bucky Brooks breaks down the top RB prospects:
...

 

Comment on Facebook

Browns should take Barkley and Fitzpatrick and then pay Kirk Cousins

This a loaded RB class so pass on Barkley? Until someone can show me a RB at 5'11, 230 pounds who can squat over 600 pounds, do over 30 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press, has a higher vertical leap, and can run 4.3 seconds or faster 40 yard dash time, and has over 100 receptions, 1,100 receiving yards then we can begin the discussion of passing on Barkley. Barkley is a special talent, Rosen, Allen, and Darnold are not. If Andrew Luck and Cam Newton were coming out of college, I will understand passing on Barkley to draft a QB. Fitzpatrick is also a special talent. You draft special talent and players with top 5 picks.

Show footage of him running on the Buckeyes. Oh wait there isn't any. There are too many good defenses in the NFL to think he'll run all over them. Two words Trent Richardson. Don't buy the hype.

Well....I think we should take Barkley at 1, there would still be very good QB's at 4, if we choose a QB at 1 more than likely Barkley will not be around at 4 the Colts will get him at 3...Barkley is a game changer he looks special so far...now if we pick up a stud vet QB and sign him long term then still go with Barkley at 1 and a DB at 4 or some defensive player.

I like Barkley. But two Pro Bowl RBs were drafted in the 3rd Round last year. He’s not worth 1 or 4. Didn’t play well against top defenses.

Browns need a QB, we haven't had one in forever. If they pass on Darnold it will be a huge mistake. Barkely is not viewed very highly by the NFL scouts. Our new guy says Guice is better. Darnold #1 and Fitzpatrick #4. We still need a vet QB.

The worst thing about Browns fans is so many of them are OSU fans. They watched Barkley play that one game and made their mind up.

F that, hope they learned a life lesson from the mistake they made on Trent Richardson. Rb's are a dime a dozen. Eagles just won a superbowl with no stud RB. Blount and Ajayi have been on multiple teams.

I have come to the conclusion that the Browns should pass on Kirk Cousins and sign AJ McCarron instead. With reports coming in that the Jets are willing to give Cousins $60 mil dollars in guaranteed money in his 1st year tells me that Cousins will expect the Browns to compete with that price and HELL NO, Cousins is NOT WORTH $60 million a year. PASS. Take McCarron and draft a QB at this point. The Jets just ruined it lol

Browns have the luxury of not gambling with talent in the first round. If you take Saquon and one of the defensive super stars like Fitzpatrick then that is a successful draft. And it enables whomever plays QB for them in 2018 to play more conservative and paced football rather than having to run and gun and make mistakes.

A QB with the 1st pick, to me, is a no brainer. Barkley will be there with the 2nd pick. A veteran QB is needed also. Any of the other needs can be filled off the waiver wires, free agency and trades. The Browns have a great front office now, starting with Dorsey. Let us watch him work, it is what he is PAID for

Take QB AT 1....If HE is there at 4 take him if not take next best player....then maybe trade back up...take kid from Lau....gice I think

The QBs are all so so...this guy is a generational talent that they cannot pass on...take him at #1 and one of the QBs at 4...they're all the same. If they don't get him, the draft is a bust, pure and simple.

Sign Kirk Cousins to a 5 year 150 million deal. 110 mil guaranteed. 35 mil year one with 25 mil signing bonus. 25 mil year 2: 25 mil year: 20 mil year 4; 20 mil year 5 Take Barkley and best defender at 4 Sign Landry and Robinson. Trade Shelton, Corey Coleman, and a pick for Marcus Peters

Said it before, he is a MUST have. You are talking about a back of Tomlinson, Faulk and Peterson all rolled into one. Not taking him would just be another name on the wall along with Wetz and Watson as guys we SHOULD have picked.

If I'm the Browns my 1st pick will be Barkley. the 4th pick will be Fitzpatrick or Chubbs, one will be their at 4th. then Lamar Jackson with the 1st 2nd round pick on the board, or I trade up into the 20s and get Jackson. and then I will pick 2 good WR with the 3rd to 5th round pick. A+++ draft. and maybe resign Josh Gordon if he can keep his nose clean.

We will know by the draft if JT is coming back. I think he is waiting to see that they sign a real QB with experience before deciding on playing again vs retiring. If JT retires they will need to use a high pick on another tackle. Nobody on the team can play that role except maybe Joel B.

Come on guys,people like you forget about Richardson,touchdown tommy,and another first round that bombed,we need players,lineman and D Bs.

Barkley at 1, one of the "meh" QBs at 4. I bet Mayfield or Rosen is still there. Darnold is gonna flop and I don't want him, led the NCAA in turnovers...

None of these QBs coming out can be called the number one QB. That tells me they’re not a franchise QB. Barkley is considered the number one RB. Get him and a WR or Cb with the first two picks

lolololol some other chub willing to take a running back with the first pick. ever check the shelf life on modern running backs?

bears' Jordan Howard was taken in the 5th round 2 years ago. All he did since then is gain more yards in his first two seasons, than Payton, Sayers, Galimore, Anderson or ANY RB IN their history! With joke QB's, so the defense could load the box on him! Relax on all this "pick Barkley early/we're scared to miss a good RB stuff." Barkley may turn out to be the next Curtis Enis.

Barkley would give us the best back since Leroy Kelly. You can’t pass on talent like this! Take him if he’s there at 4

The way I see it is,right now I would give up first overall pick for zeke Elliot or Leonard fournette, so right now we can take a guy just as good so you go get him 1st pick,2nd pick will be leftover quarterback to sit on the bench and learn,sign McCarron, and rest of picks wide receivers and playmakers

All you guys are crazy no FA QB is going to want to come into a QB competition! McCarran, Cousins ect want a guarantee start! If they draft one in 1st round fans expect him to start
