George Washington Carver was a prominent American scientist and inventor in the early 1900s. Carver developed hundreds of products using the peanut, sweet potatoes and soybeans. He also was a champion of crop rotation and agricultural education. Born into slavery, today he is an icon of American ingenuity and the transformative potential of education.
Early life
Carver was likely born in January or June of 1864. His exact birth date is unknown because he was born a slave on the farm of Moses Carver in Diamond, Missouri. Very little is known about George’s father, who may have been a field hand named Giles who was killed in a farming accident before George was born. George’s mother was named Mary; he had several sisters, and a brother named James.
When George was only a few weeks old, Confederate raiders invaded the farm, kidnapping George, his mother and sister. They were sold in Kentucky, and only George was found by an agent of Moses Carver and returned to Missouri. Carver and his wife, Susan, raised George and James and taught them to read.
James soon gave up the lessons, preferring to work in the fields with his foster father. George was not a strong child and was not able to work in the fields, so Susan taught the boy to help her in the kitchen garden and to make simple herbal medicines. George became fascinated by plants and was soon experimenting with natural pesticides, fungicides and soil conditioners. Local farmers began to call George “the plant doctor,” as he was able to tell them how to improve the health of their garden plants. "Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses."
"Fear of something is at the root of hate for others, and hate within will eventually destroy the hater."
"Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom."
"When you do the common things in life in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world."
"Where there is no vision, there is no hope."
"Nothing is more beautiful than the loveliness of the woods before sunrise."
"There is no short cut to achievement. Life requires thorough preparation - veneer isn't worth anything."
"Learn to do common things uncommonly well; we must always keep in mind that anything that helps fill the dinner pail is valuable."
'It is not the style of clothes one wears, neither the kind of automobile one drives, nor the amount of money one has in the bank, that counts. These mean nothing. It is simply service that measures success.'--George Washington Carver. George Washington Carver paved the way for agriculturists to come. He always went for the best throughout his whole life. He didn't just keep the best for himself; he gave it away freely for the benefit of mankind. Not only did he achieve his goal as the world's greatest agriculturist, but also he achieved the equality and respect of all. George Washington Carver was born near Diamond Grove, Missouri in 1864. He was born on a farm owned by Moses and Susan Carver. He was born a sick, weak baby and was unable to work on the farm. His weak condition started when a raiding party kidnapped him with his mom. He was returned to the Carver's farm with whooping cough. His mother had disappeared and the identity of his father was unknown, so the Carver's were left to care for him and his brother James. Here on the farm is where George first fell in love with plants and Mother Nature. He had his own little garden in the nearby woods where he would talk to the plants. He soon earned the nickname, The Plant Doctor, and was producing his own medicines right on the farm. George's formal education started when he was twelve. He had, however, tried to get into schools in the past but was denied on the basis of race. No black school was available locally so he was forced to move. He said Good-bye to his adopted parents, Susan and Moses, and headed to Newton County in southwest Missouri. Here is where the path of his education began. He studied in a one-room schoolhouse and worked on a farm to pay for it. He ended up, shortly after, moving with another family to Fort Scott in Kansas. In Kansas, he worked as a baker in a kitchen while he attended the High School. He paid for his schooling with the money he earned from winning bake-off contests. From there he moved all over bouncing from school to school. College entrance was a struggle again because of racial barriers.2 At the age of thirty he gained acceptance to Simpson College in Indianola, Iowa. He was the first black student accepted to this college. Here he studied piano and art. With his ambition to pursue a science major, he transformed to Iowa Agricultural College (Iowa State) in 1891. He received his Bachelors of Science in 1894 and his Masters in bacterial botany and agriculture in 1897. He learned about fungi and the disease it causes. During his research he became known to agricultural centers all over the country. He went on to become the first black faculty member at Iowa State. He taught classes about soil conservation and chemurgy. In 1896, Booker T. Washington, founder of the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute for Negroes, convinced Carver to go south and serve as the Tuskegee school director of agriculture. Here he would remain for the rest of his life. Here, in Alabama, he did experiments with peanuts, sweet potatoes, pecans, peas, and soybeans. He soon developed his crop rotation method where he alternated the soil depleting cotton crops with these soil-enriching crops. Since America depended mostly on southern agriculture at this time, his achievement was very important and valuable to southern farmers. Since a combination of cotton, tobacco, and the Civil War had depleted the soil of rich nutrients, Carver convinced all of the southern farmers to adopt his technique. This helped the south to recover and produce not only more, but bigger crops. He continued constantly working with peanuts, sweet potatoes, and pecans trying to produce new products. He developed more than 300 products from the peanut (including Peanut Butter), 175 from the sweet potato, and 60 from the pecan. He extracted blue, purple, and red pigments from the clay soil of Alabama. He researched the manufacture of synthetic marble from green wood shavings, rope from cornstalk fibers, and veneers from the palmetto root. During WWI, he worked to replace the textile dyes that were being imported from Europe. He ended up producing and replacing over 500 different shades. In 1927, he invented a process for producing paints and stains from soybeans. Three different patents were issued: US 1,522,176 Cosmetics and Producing the Same. Jan. 6,1925 George Washington Carver. Tuskegee, Alabama. US 1,541,478 Paint and Stain and Producing the Same. June 9, 1925 George Washington Carver. Tuskegee, Alabama US 1,632,365 Producing Paints and Stains June 14, 1927 George Washington Carver. Tuskegee, Alabama.3 He did not patent or sell hundreds of his other inventions and products but gave them away for the world to benefit from them. His most famous peanut product was peanut butter. He received his doctorate from Simpson College in 1928. He became a member of the Royal Society of Arts in London, England. He also received, by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), the Spingarn Medal. He became part of the U.S. Department of agriculture in 1935. In 1939, he was awarded the Roosevelt Medal for restoring southern agriculture. George Washington Carver died at the age of 79 (1864-1943) in 1943 from anemia. He donated his whole life savings to Tuskegee University for further study in agriculture. For his great accomplishments he was honored with many things. In 1951, a national monument near his home was formed and named after him. This was the first national monument to be named after an African American. He was given a commemorative stamp and was induced into the NY University of Hall of Fame. He was the second African American to make it into the hall of fame. George Washington Carver, in the end, achieved his goal as the greatest agriculturists and so much more. Everything that he invented, he invented for the benefit of mankind. He even gave away well over half of his invented products. But most important, he changed the south from being a one-crop land of cotton, to multi-crop farmlands, and gave the farmers hundreds of profitable uses for their new crops.4 Truly an American hero of agriculturists, he paved and planted the road for future one's to come.…...

Whio Says Ignorance Is Bliss?

...Who Says Ignorance is Bliss? Stereotypes are qualities or characteristics that are often assigned to a group based on their gender, race, sexual orientation and nameless other catagories. These assigned qualities or characteristics are usually exaggerated or distorted beliefs that we have labeled these groups with. We are all guilty of stereotyping, whether we do it consciously or subconsciously, we all at one time or another have taken part in it. There are three stereotypes that I have recognized in my own life and I now understand how my misconceptions and/or those of others may have had a negative effect on those who were erroneously characterized within these stereotypical labels. Convicts who are released and given their freedom never really experience total freedom. They will forever carry around the title of “ex-con”. Job applications, rental applications, and sometimes even credit applications will ask if the person has ever been convicted of a felony. They will also be asked why there is a lapse in work history or residence history. Once the person explains that they where incarcerated for a period of time, they are automatically looked at under a different light. It is assumed that they are not trustworthy and are just going to repeat their crimes. I myself was guilty of this until about five years ago. The management company I work for has strict rules when it comes to renting to someone who has been convicted of a felony. We are instructed to deny......

Blindness Is Bliss

...Ignorance is Bliss Many people believe that more knowledge leads to more happiness. However, the well-known saying "Ignorance is bliss" may be more credible than people think. Many times, people are hurt by the truth. Therefore, more knowledge does not make one happier because the truth can be devastating and have a negative impact on one's life. When you are ignorant, you choose to not recognize that there is wrong in the world or that wrong is being done to you. This proverb can be clearly illustrated in Plato’s ‘Allegory of the Cave’ and the story of ‘Oedipus the King’. In the story of ‘Oedipus the king’, it is prophesized that Oedipus would kill his father and marries his mother. If Oedipus had remained oblivious of the ancient prophecy he would not have ultimately stabbed out his own eyes. And imposed on himself the penalty of exile. He was so desperate for knowledge and to find out the truth that in the end he caused pain to himself. If he would remain ignorant, he would not have gone through much pain. His thirst of knowing the truth was the road through his tragic end. For Oedipus, ignorance would have been bliss. In the case of Plato’s ‘Allegory of the Cave’, once the prisoner is released he is forced to look upon the fire and objects that were his reality. He realizes these new images in front of him are now the accepted forms of reality. Plato describes the vision of the real truth in one way to the prisoners. Thus, they do not realize that they are looking......

Ignorance Is Not Bliss

...Ignorance is Not Bliss Cathedral, written by Raymond Carver, is a short fiction essay with the narrator as the real protagonist that goes through a significant transformation. The author’s choice of point of view as well as, the theme and symbolism shown in Cathedral provide evidence to support the protagonist’s epiphany of overcoming his own prejudices. An important theme includes ignorance and understanding and the main symbol of the story is the cathedral itself. These components of the story are important in bringing out the narrator’s epiphany, where he comes to accept people for how they are and realize that he is not superior to someone who has an impairment. Carver chose first person as the point of view for this story. First person narrators are characters who tell the story from the perspective of “I” or “We”. This point of view gives the reader a chance to experience the story how the narrator sees and understands the world. In Cathedral, our narrator speaks in short, chopped sentences in the beginning. This shows the reader that he is lacking self-awareness, arrogant, and/or insecure. The narrator only sees Robert as a blind man, from the start. Throughout the story as the narrator gets to know Robert better, he becomes more descriptive with his sentences and his structure is not as choppy. This is important in showing his change of traits. This demonstrates to the readers that the narrator grows from ignorant to more open-minded and accepting, especially of...

Ignorance Is Sometimes Bliss

...Paulo Gabriel L. Esguerra English IV 02/16/2014 “Ignorance is Sometimes Bliss” “Ignorance is Bliss”, the advice most people give when a person is facing a problem. When life gets tough and unyielding, it is better to ignore the problem. Why do you need to stress out over something that does not concern or benefit you in anyway? Why would you even want to care? That statement brings this sort of mentality to society and is the cause for many of the pain and sufferings in this world. Do you think that hunger and poverty would exist if everyone cared? Are the suffering not humans too that we can afford to turn a blind eye to what’s already in front of us? There are many ways to fix a problem; believe it or not, ignorance actually makes the situation worse. The problem will always exist if it hadn’t been dealt with, the question is if you will have the courage to face it. Courage isn’t the solution to everything. One may be the bravest soul around but may also be the most idiotic. The best way to face a problem is to “know thy enemy.” This method takes careful planning and extensive study on the subject though the results will be to your favour. Always remember the saying, “knowledge is power”; the more one is knowledgeable on the subject, the more opportunities present themselves and it will just come down to deciding the best course of action. A knowledgeable person will face a problem by exploiting its weaknesses and striking while the iron is hot.......

Third, employee engagement plays a part in any business to help promote talent retention, foster customer loyalty, improve company performance and provide value for stakeholders (Bliss, 2010).

Fifth, engaged employees tend to remain with the company because they wish to become a part of the company to help them achieve its organizational goals; become an advocate by referring friends and/or relatives to promote a positive work environment; and finally, they strive to put in the extra effort to contribute to company success (Bliss, 2010).

Ignorance Is Bliss

...Grace Reynolds Hum 2210 Pennington Scholar Group 2 Journal Essay #4 Ignorance Is Bliss The fact that many Americans believe that Muslims and the Arab world are ignorant speaks more to our lack of understanding of other cultures inside and outside of America than it does the merits or accomplishments of those cultures. History has shown that the Islamic culture and Arab world is anything but ignorant. The quest for a new Islamic world began in the early 7th century and was a militarily and societal effort to spread the religion and culture of Islam. Invading Islamic armies found once powerful, but now depleted and war weary empires ripe for the sacking; utilizing both land and sea assaults to conquer port and city targets. Within 100 years of the fall of Mecca, Islam had spread across much of the Middle East, North Africa and Spain, sparking the Golden Age of Islam. Islamic society in newly conquered lands was advanced by creating city centers that helped build a sense of community for its citizens. Mosques were built and used as social, economic, and educational gathering places. Also functioning as governmental and administrative faculties, mosques literally served all aspects of daily life. This virtually insured the religion influenced all who interacted within the mosque community. Later, teaching colleges called Madrasas were attached to the mosques in order to teach the Qur’an as well as other disciplines, including mathematics and the......

Ignorance Is Bliss

...Gokulnath Govindan Dr. Aratrika Das ENG 104 August 26, Tuesday 2014 What implication does denial have in our understanding of the world? “Ignorance is Bliss!!” In this chapter “Silencing”, from his book, A Language Older Than Words, Derrick Jensen seeks to understand the barbarity that humans inflict upon each other as well as the world in which they live. He fails to understand the fact that “if our behaviour is not making us happy, why do we act this way“ (15)? Jensen uses the help of terms such as Denial and Silencing in order to answer this question. We can safely interpret from the essay that in this particular context, silencing and denial coexist and more often act as synonyms. Therefore, the fact that denial is not explicitly mentioned in Jensen’s essay does not mean that he is ignoring it. Although we shall be looking at what denial is and how understanding it helps the author in answering his central question, the primary aim of this paper is to look at the implications denial has in our understanding of the world. This is so because if there were no implications of denial, other questions of what it is or why it occurs could be rendered completely pointless. According to Oxford English Dictionary, Denial is defined as “asserting (of anything ) to be untrue or untenable”. Jensen talks of three forms of denial in his essay. The first form mentioned is self-denial or in this context, the victim’s denial. Jensen’s own experience with......

Intelligence Is Bliss

...How would you define an intellectual, and what is intelligence anyway? These are questions often sought by struggling students who feel their schools are academically challenging due to uninteresting subjects. In the essay “Hidden Intellectualism” written by Gerald Graff, he believes that there is knowledge and intelligence beyond what can be tested through formal schooling. He exposes in his writing that knowledge can also take the form within what he considers “street smarts.” Graff ultimately makes an excellent point. He argues that schools ought to encourage learners to read, think critically and write about their fields of personal interests such as sports, fashion or cars. Those unfamiliar with this school of thought may be interested to know that it basically boils down to the student’s interest. By integrating students’ interest, they would be able to learn more about the subjects linked to their social lives in the real world, in addition to attaining the benefits of classroom knowledge, and further developing intellectual growth. The author makes a great point about the student’s interest like sports and how it has a better grasp on what society is like outside of the academia world. “The real intellectual world, the one that existed in the big world beyond school is organized very much like the world of team sports,” Graff explains, “with rival texts, rival interpretations and evaluations of texts, rival theories of why they should be read and taught, and......

Solitude Is Bliss

...Leslie Haggard CMLT- C 110 Final Draft October 3, 2014 Solitude is Bliss In the poem, Shannon, Campbell McGrath gives voice to George Shannon’s agonizing journey during the sixteen days he spends wandering lost and alone on the prairies of the Western frontier. Shannon comes to face a number of trials throughout the duration of his journey, as he wanders the land half-starved with lost hope of ever being found again. Oddly enough, his biggest battle is not his fight to survive but rather this war with himself, questioning what is supposed to become of his life and perhaps who he is supposed to be. Therefore, Shannon’s journey becomes something much larger than just his discoveries and observations of the land. Instead, his journey becomes more about self-discovery as he begins to uncover what he thought he had already found, his true identity. It would be no exaggeration to say that the Shannon that first sets out into the wilderness is not the same Shannon who comes out. In the beginning of his journey, he is full of wonder and excitement for “It is a fine & open country in every aspect hereabouts.” (McGrath 9) Also, he is fully confident in himself and his abilities at the start of the expedition. He states, “I am a better hunter than most back home & this is a newer land” (McGrath 10). However, it is not too far into the journey when he begins to recognize the “pure foolishness” of setting out alone. As the days progress, he starts to give up hope as......

Baron Bliss

...Baron Bliss Baron Bliss, Henry Edward Ernest Victor Bliss, was born in the county of Buckingham, England on the 16 February, 1869. Formerly known as Henry Edward Ernest Victor Barretts but his last name was changed to Bliss just about the time that he acquired the title of fourth Baron of the former Kingdom of Portugal. He had been married to a woman by the name of Baroness Ethel Alice Bliss, bearing no children and to whom he left a settlement covenant before traveling abroad. He was a wealthy man, mostly due to inheritance and went on to pursue an early retirement travelling the Caribbean. Fishing and sailing were consider Bliss’ two passions; he enjoyed the mere fact that he was out there on the sea, travelling and was being engaged in his favourite sport, game fishing. Bliss’ first boat, Sea King, was commandeered after the start of the First World War in 1914 for the British war effort. However, by 1920 Bliss had already arranged for a second ship to be built, Sea King 2, and within that same year he prepared to leave England. Upon leaving England, Baron Bliss arranged for settlements to be given to Baroness Bliss, ultimately ending their marriage. The Baron then sat sail for the Caribbean and his first destination was the Bahamas. Baron Bliss’ first stop was in the Bahamas, a place he became quite fond of and stayed for five years. It is recorded that he acquired some property on some of the islands, which seemingly suggests that he contemplated staying there.......

Ignorance Is Bliss

...Majumdar 4576366 Question 3 : Ignorance is Bliss “Ignorance is bliss” was first put into a phrase by Thomas Gray in is ode on a Distant Prospect of Eton College. When considering this, to me the key thing to understand is perception. “Comparison is the thief of joy” – Theodore Roosevelt. If we are to say that ignorance is bliss, then we are saying that knowledge is sadness. Turing and Russell, noted logicians, would say that of course ignorance is bliss. When we are unaware of the things that could make us unhappy, we are in a state of happiness. But is that to say we were happier? Ignorance is plainly then just ignorance. It is only through knowledge that we can understand that we were happier when we didn’t know. We do not know what we are ignorant of until we discover the truth. To the example at hand; Cypher would be neither happier nor unhappier being back in the matrix. The only way he would know that he was blissful would be by comparison, making this idea in itself a paradox. “The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation, but the thoughts about it. Beware of the thoughts you are thinking” – Eckhart Tolle. Tolle’s view supports the idea that it is the knowledge that makes us understand whether or not we are happy. The idea that thinking is what makes us happy goes all the way back to Descartes, in a way. If the only thing we are sure about are our thoughts, then we are the masters of our own ignorance and our own bliss. Having a Socratic......

Ambient Awareness or Ignorant Bliss?

...Ambient Awareness or Ignorant Bliss? Web-based social networking services have definitely proven to be a resourceful way for people with common interests, activities, and backgrounds to stay connected across political, economic, and geographic borders. Ambient awareness is a newer form of social awareness that involves constant contact with one’s friends and colleagues through the use of these platforms. Through micro-blogging, users post frequent, brief messages about everyday personal activities. There are both positive and negative aspects of these inventive behaviors. Clive Thompson is a popular blogger and a science and technology writer who has some great points regarding ambient awareness in his article, “I’m So Totally, Digitally, Close to You. On page 174, he mentions how impersonal we become by communicating continuously in this way. He says, “…it might, some critics worry, spread your emotional energy too thin, leaving less for true intimate relationships.” On any given social media site, the average person could follow newsfeeds, posts, or conversations of hundreds of contacts. The accessibility in itself causes us to become emotionally lazy. Why drive across town to see someone when we don’t have to disrupt even a moment of our lives to see how someone is doing? These technologies allow your social circle to become vast. This causes them to become addicting and overused, leading to broken relationships because the people are so caught up on the......

Bliss Language Features

...There are various language features used in Bliss to portray the theme of happiness. One of the language features used to show the idea of “happiness” is symbolism. Mansfield uses various symbols to reflect the thoughts and feelings of the characters in the short story. These include the pear tree, the sun and moon, and hot and cold. All of these have symbols linking to the idea of happiness. The pear tree can be linked to many things. One is nature’s indifference to human suffering – and how, no matter what we are going through in our lives, there is still beauty. The other is Bertha’s naivety, because no matter how her view of the tree changes, it is still just a pear tree (i.e. no matter how much she tries to convince herself that she has a perfect life, there will still be unchanged underlying factors which will eventually reveal themselves). Another language feature used is imagery. Sun and Moon imagery is very important to portraying the idea of happiness. Mansfield uses sun imagery in the beginning of the story when Bertha feels as though her life is full of “bliss”. This changes later in the story when a candle metaphor links the sun image to the moon, suggesting Bertha’s innocence before she discovered the nastiness surrounding her. The narrative style in the story also helps to show the idea of happiness. The story is told through Bertha’s eyes, however the writing is very indirect and elliptic, allowing the reader to feel unsure about Bertha’s opinions of the......
