The Mechanical Trumpeter invented in 1810. This life-size Mechanical Trumpeter was constructed by Friedrich Kaufmann, from Dresden, Germany, in 1810. The Trumpeter in Spanish costume had leather bellows for lungs and reeds which imitated the sound of a brass instrument. This is a program mounted into an automata to play a tune, like the European street organs. The notches mounted on the drum activated valves that let the air pass by 12 tongues. Which produced a kind of modulated through a trumpet sound. The stepped drum and the bellows are powered by a spring mechanism that need to be wound up, with the crank laying at the bottom. The height of this automata is 180 cm. In 1812 Carl Maria von Weber traveled to the Kaufmanns’ workshop and was pleasantly surprised by the automaton, claiming that it possessed a ‘beautiful tone’…”

Aristocratic restaurant Cafe Pushkin
Until 1766 eating places were always part of a hotel or an inn. But that year a chief named Boulanger opened the first public dining place in Paris. The owner placed a sign in front of his establishment. This sign was an adaption of the famous quotation from the Bible: “Come unto me, all ye that are hungry and I shall restore you”. From that word “restore” (in French “restaurerai”) the establishment became known as a “Restaurant” and since then this name has been applied to eating places all over the world.

People who live fast die younger

People who live fast die younger. James Dean, Actor. Died in 1955, at age 24, in a car crash

People who live fast die younger, as light that burns twice as bright burns half as long. Stars such as Kurt Cobain, are more likely to die young, according to new research. The deaths of Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison still fodder for books and films decades later. The price of fame equated to up to seven and a half years of life. Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix and more did not realize their potential. Fame really does have a price, research shows. Young people considering chasing fame may face early death. Another recent analysis of rock and pop stars found that many of those who died young had been abused when young. The British researchers said that the trappings of a rock and roll lifestyle may be especially attractive to those who have had an unhappy childhood. Dying young is truly tragic, but at least these people made their mark on society before checking out early. Below is the list of famous people who died before the age of 30.

King of flamenco Joaquin Cortes

King of flamenco Joaquin Cortes. When you hear or read the word ‘Spain’, what comes first to your head? Well, for a great many people Spain means bullfights, toreadors, Don Quixote and the passionate rhythms of flamenco. That is for people outside Spain. For those who live there flamenco is part of the culture of Andalusia, not of Spain in general. Gypsy music, traditional Andalusia folk songs and Arab melodies from Spain’s Moorish past have all played a part in creating this unique sound. The first flamenco schools appeared in Seville in the late 1700.

Beautiful ballerina Michaela DePrince
This story is simply heart touching. Michaela DePrince, born Mabinty Bangura, was orphaned in war-torn Sierra Leone at the age of three, when her father was shot dead and her mother died of starvation. In the orphanage the three-year-old girl had to face tough life. She remembers being called “the devil’s child” and being ill-treated by the orphanage’s carers because she had vitiligo – a skin condition that causes blotches of lightening skin. Children in the orphanage were given numbers ranking them from the most favored to the least. DePrince was ranked 27th out of 27 children. Michaela DePrince was just three years old when she saw a ballerina for the first time. “I was just so fascinated by this person, by how beautiful she was, how she was wearing such a beautiful costume,” she remembers. “So I ripped the cover off and I put it in my underwear.” The girl was told – ‘Black dancers can’t be ballerinas’
