It’s BLACK HISTORY MONTH, and we are continuing to CELEBRATE the achievements and contributions African-Americans have made to SOCIETY as we know it. So let’s talk about Alexander Miles.

Alexander Miles was an African-American inventor who was best known for being awarded a patent for an automatically opening and closing elevator door design in 1887. Contrary to many sources, Miles was not the original inventor of this device. In 1874, 13 years before Miles’ patent was awarded, John W. Meaker was awarded U.S. Patent 147,853 for the invention of the first automatic elevator door system. Continue reading #BlackHistoryMonth Moment: #AlexanderMiles PERFECTED the modern-day ELEVATOR!

In an exclusive interview with NBC News, Jeanette Manfra, the head of cybersecurity at the Department of Homeland Security, said she couldn’t talk about classified information publicly, but in 2016, “We saw a targeting of 21 states and an exceptionally small number of them were actually successfully penetrated.” [MORE] Continue reading BREAKING: #Russians SUCCESSFULLY hacked into U.S. Voter systems,cybersecurity chief says.

Jacob-Copeland-thegamutt

National Signing Day is supposed to be an overwhelmingly joyous occasion for the parents of recruits. It’s the summation of a process years in the making and a guarantee that their son will play football and go to college for free.

Someone forgot to tell Jacob Copeland’s mother that.

Copeland, a four-star wide receiver, committed to Florida over Tennessee and Alabama on Wednesday in one of the more bizarre manners you’ll see. He was sitting at a table with multiple people around him, some of whom were wearing Alabama sweatshirts. The man directly behind him was wearing a Tennessee windbreaker hat and his mother, who was one of the people wearing an Alabama sweatshirt, also had a Tennessee beanie on. Notably, no one was wearing Florida gear.
When Copeland put on the Florida hat, his mom got up and left without saying a word. The ESPN announcing crew then put Copeland on the spot by asking him who the person who left is. Credit to Copeland for answering the question straightforwardly; he told them that it’s his mother and that he didn’t know why she left, but that he felt good about his decision.
No. 40 overall prospect Jacob Copeland breaks down his decision to commit to the University of Florida and why his mom walked out after the announcement. Continue reading 5th-ranked WR #JacobCopeland commits to #Florida, upset mom storms off, but then something special happens!! [vid]
