bed, into a removal van from the Great Pagwell Removal and Warehousing
Company. For Professor Branestawm was moving into a new house. You see, he'

with partly finished inventions and only-just-begun inventions and never-would-

Patent law has very little to do with the way invention actually works. Indulge me
for a moment while I offer an experience of my own with invention and patents.” In
the 1970s, under contract with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), I was
trying to learn what would happen if a high-pressure hot-water line in a nuclear
reactor fractured. The immediate problem was to simulate a pipe break by
opening a highpressure hot-water pipe very rapidly. The two obvious options
were ...

An Evolutionary Tour of Mankind's Greatest Invention Guy Deutscher. 'good' nor '
bad', it is still a fact, and one that begs explanation. Why have European
languages moved en masse towards simpler morphology? And why have new
fusions generally failed to materialize? The first explanation that comes to mind is
that the last few millennia just happen to constitute one phase of a very long cycle
. According to this line of argument, the languages have simply gone through the
phase of ...

The idea that any culinary “invention” appears out of the blue is nonsense. Most
new dishes are really no more than a variation on a previously familiar theme.
Over time, an accumulation of changes really does transform a cuisine, but it
doesn't happen overnight. But no matter how original it really was, the Julien
brothers needed to figure out what to call the new dessert. There is no way of
knowing how many names the brothers debated at the brainstorming session that
came up with ...

Practicing each of these elements of invention will make you a more critical
thinker and a more persuasive communicator. The other four canons—
arrangement, style, memory, and delivery—are important, and entire books have

A slice of bread was placed near each side of the heated coils for the toasting to
happen. It had no controlling adjustment—not even an on/off switch. When
pondering the chicken and the egg in the classic problem about “which came first
,” one may wonder if pre-sliced bread came before the toaster. The answer
quickly pops up: the bread slicing machine was needed first. The inventor, Otto
Frederick Rohwedder, began working on it in 1912. It took him nearly two
decades of slicing ...
