The correct, precise and accurate blood matching for possible blood transfusion plays a crucial role in every patient who requires such. And this blood matching made possible by the discovery of blood groupings by Dr. Karl Landsteiner. Perhaps it is just right to celebrate his 148th birthday today as we can see how Google doodles Karl Landsteiner 148th birthday.
The Google homepage just shows an animation of the 4 different blood groups, A, B, AB and O. Enjoy this educational animated homepage today guys!
It always amazes me every time Google makes or doodles their homepage and give honor to any heroes, I consider one a hero when he does or did something great for everyone. For instance, as today, Google doodles Wilbur Scoville 151st Birthday.
You can eventually find it and check how Google doodles Wilbur Scoville 151st Birthday today on their homepage.
Moreover, Wilbur Scoville was a pharmacologist and the author of “The Art of Compounding” book and the one who created the Organoleptic Test to measure a pepper’s heat level.
Isn’t that amazing? Well, now we can enjoy or every chef and cooks can significantly estimate the amount of pepper to use when cooking because of this. Thank you Sir Wilbur Scoville for that great achievement.
One might wonder what Google is doodling about today as it is showing an animated planet earth being sliced into halves and so on. Well, Google doodles Inge Lehmann’s 127th birthday today as an honor to remember how she did and make a history as a Seismologist.
Inge Lehmann ForMemRS (May 13, 1888 – February 21, 1993) was a Danish seismologist and geophysicist who discovered the Earth’s inner core. In 1936, she postulated from existing seismic data the existence of an inner core with physical properties distinct from the outer core’s and that Earth’s core is not a single molten sphere. Seismologists, who had not been able to propose a workable hypothesis for the observation that the P-wave created by earthquakes slowed down when it reached certain areas of the inner Earth, quickly accepted her conclusion.
If you happen to get updated with the latest news and events happening in the whole world, one can relate this Google doodle today as what’s happening in Nepal. Aren’t you?
Today is Aaliyah’s birthday. I actually forgot it, honestly. But it just happened coincidentally that I was browsing for this song just this very moment when I also read on my Facebook news feed about a friend’s post regarding today’s birthday of Aaliyah.
And for today’s birthday of Aaliyah, I wanna share this music video of hers.
It’s good to see again how Google is getting so artistic and creative in their homepage as Google Doodles Mary Anning 215th Birthday today!
Google Doodles Mary Anning 215th Birthday
Honestly, I can’t remember if Mary Anning was mentioned in my history classes back from Elementary, Secondary and even in my College years. Or maybe, it was, but I just didn’t put much attention to her before. But anyway, Mary Anning was a British fossil collector. In fact, her collections made a great importance in the field of knowledge in the Jurassic marine fossil beds at Lyme Regis in Dorset. She has made a vast contribution to scientific investigation about the prehistoric life and the history of the Earth, per se.
And again, happy birthday to Mary Anning and thank you for your great contribution to our knowledge!
Here’s Google getting so doodly again as Google Doodles Dian Fossey 82nd Birthday!
As you may notice it, the Google homepage seemed to be gorilla-friendly. This is because Dian Fossey was an American zoologist and extensively studied gorillas for 18 years. Fossey went and studied those gorillas daily in the mountain forests of Rwanda. In fact, she was able to publish a book in 1983 entitled, Gorillas in the Mist. The book was a combination of her scientific studies made at the mountain with the gorilla at Karisoke Research Center and with her own personal story.
However, despite her extravagant knowledge being shared in the field of Zoology, for reasons we do not know, Fossey was murdered in 1985. But the worse thing is that the case remains open.
Anyway, Happy birthday Dian Fossey!
I am loving how Google doodles Hermann Rorschach 129th birthday. Yes, because I have just recently learned that Hermann Rorschach was a Swiss Freudian psychiatrist and psychoanalyst. In fact, in one of our discussions in Psychiatry class, though Rorschach was not mentioned, but the process of psychoanalysis was. So I guess, this is just so timely.
Google Doodles Hermann Rorschach 129th Birthday
Moreover, Hermann Rorschach was best known for developing a projective test known as the Rorschach inkblot test. I have no idea yet what is it all about but I will try to find out what is it then.
Google is getting so animated and playful today as the world’s celebrating it’s 15th birthday today.
Happy 15th Birthday Google!
I tried playing with the Google animated homepage earlier and I somehow enjoyed it.
Happy 15th birthday Google!!!
Google is getting so artistic today as Google Doodles Antoni Gaudi 161st Birthday today.
Google Doodles Antoni Gaudi 161st Birthday
Since I do not know much about Antoni Gaudi, I have here a short description about him, an excerpt of the information from Wikipedia.
Antoni Gaudí i Cornet (Catalan pronunciation: [ənˈtɔni ɣəwˈði]; 25 June 1852 – 10 June 1926) was a Spanish Catalan architect born in Reus, in the Catalonia region of Spain and leader of Catalan Modernism. Gaudí’s works reflect his highly individual and distinctive style and are largely concentrated in the Catalan capital of Barcelona, notably his magnum opus, the Sagrada Família.
Much of Gaudí’s work was marked by his big passions in life: architecture, nature, religion. Gaudí studied every detail of his creations, integrating into his architecture a series of crafts in which he was skilled: ceramics, stained glass, wrought ironwork forging and carpentry. He introduced new techniques in the treatment of materials, such as trencadís, made of waste ceramic pieces.
After a few years, under the influence of neo-Gothic art and Oriental techniques, Gaudí became part of the Modernista movement which was reaching its peak in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His work transcended mainstream Modernisme, culminating in an organic style inspired by nature. Gaudí rarely drew detailed plans of his works, instead preferring to create them as three-dimensional scale models and molding the details as he was conceiving them.
Today, Google seemed to be musical as Google Doodles Ella Fitzgerald 96th Birthday!
Google Doodles Ella Fitzgerald 96th Birthday
I am not a musician and I only knew just little info about Ella Fitzgerald. She was known as Queen of Jazz, Lady Ella and the First Lady of Song. She was basically an American Jazz Vocalist. She has won 13 Grammy Awards and she also received award from the National Medal of Arts by Ronal Reagan and Presidential Medal of Freedom by George H. W. Bush.
