Google Doodle artists spotlight a film legacy as towering as Godzilla

JENNIFER HOM, the Bay Area-based Google artist, has both an eye for the precise and a flair for the dramatic.

Today, Hom achieves that artistic union by helping create a Google Doodle to mark the 114th birthday of late Japanese cinematic legend Eiji Tsuburaya.

As an interactive ode to the special-effects pioneer, the Doodle allows the user to build a film, step by monster-loving step.

“Director Eiji Tsuburaya is best known for the famous characters he brought to life, like Ultraman,” Hom says in Google’s “making of” peek behind the scenes.

“After many years in the ‘monster business,’ he set up his own practical effects studio, Tsuburaya Productions.

The Japanese film director, who died in 1970 aged 68, worked on classic monster films such as Godzilla and Ultraman. Tsuburaya was also the innovator of the movement known as Tokusatsu, a Japanese term which refers to the extensive use of special effects in film and television. Today would have been Tsuburaya’s 114th birthday.
To celebrate this, a new Google Doodle allows you to create your own short action film in just 10 steps.

Eiji Tsuburaya, July 7, 1901 – January 25, 1970, in Sukagawa, Fukushima) was the Japanese special effects director responsible for many Japanese science-fiction movies, being one of the co-creators of the Godzilla series, as well as the main creator of Ultraman.

Tsuburaya Productions

In the 1940’s, Tsuburaya started his own special effects laboratory (set up at his home), and in 1963, founded his own studio for visual effects, Tsuburaya Productions. In 1966 alone, this company aired the first ‘Ultra‘ series for television, Ultra Q beginning in January, followed it with the highly popular Ultraman in July, and premiered a comedy-monster series, Booska, the Friendly Beast in November.

Ultraman became the first live-action Japanese television series to be exported around the world, and spawned the Ultra Series which continues to this day.

Today is the 130th anniversary of Statue of Liberty’s arrival in New York

BLine

Lady Liberty is celebrating a big anniversary.

On June 17, 1885 — 130 years ago — the Statue of Liberty arrived in New York harbor.

A gift of friendship from France to commemorate the ideals shared by French and American governments, the statue arrived in New York harbor in more than 300 pieces, according to the National Parks Service.

Google is commemorating the 130th anniversary of the arrival of the Statue of Liberty in New York with doodles in the US and France.
Users of the French search engine are met with a picture of the iconic monument on a ship, with a link below inviting them to “relive the construction of the Statue of Liberty”.

It takes visitors to an interactive timeline of the “exceptional human, artistic and technical adventure” to create it in the 1800’s.

The copper statue was assembled over the course of several months on what was then called Bedloe’s Island, according to the National Parks Service, before being commemorated on October 28, 1886.

The artist who designed the statue, Auguste Bartholdi, said he chose to put the statue on what is now known as Liberty island because of its location in the busy harbor.

“Born in France, made in the USA. Relive the creation of the Statue of Liberty.”

“Nearly 130 years ago, France gifted the US with one of the most prolific symbols of freedom the world over,” Google said in a statement.

“Since then, it has welcomed millions of people searching for a new life on unfamiliar shores.

“Today, the Statue of Liberty is more than just a symbol of solidarity. It’s a reminder that all countries thrive on the exchange of ideas and culture.”

BLine

Officially titled “The Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World”, it was a gift from France to the US marking the countries’ friendship and a century of American independence.

It was designed by French sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, who became fascinated by Bedloe’s Island, now Liberty Island, during a trip to New York in 1871.

GLib11

He chose it as the location for him to fulfill anti-slavery activist Edouard de Laboulaye’s dream of erecting a commemorative monument for the anniversary of independence, which he had started designing the year before.

Craftsmen started work in France in 1876 and the completed statue was taken apart again to be shipped across the Atlantic aboard French Navy ship the Isère eight years later.

The statue arrived in New York harbor on 17 June to huge crowds but the incomplete pedestal meant the entire structure could not be finished for another year.

On 28 October 1886, the statue of “Liberty Enlightening the World” was officially unveiled, with one million New Yorkers gathering to watch Bartholdi pull to French flag off Liberty’s face.

Google Doodle Celebrates Sally Ride’s 64th Birthday

Today, May 26, 2015, American astronaut Sally Ride would have have been 64 years old.
She died in 2012, but her work lives on as an inspiration to young women who want to touch the stars.

Ride was indefatigable in promoting education, in promoting the need to explore space, and working to get girls more involved with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. As the first American woman in space her place in history was secure, but she knew what this implied for her as a role model, and maximized that leverage.

Google has helped promote her message today in a series of lovely Doodles, animated images that come up when you open the home page of the search engine.

Dr. Ride was immortalized when NASA named the GRAIL spacecraft impact site after her. But her legacy was secured by her own doing, by her actions. And we thank her for them.

The astronaut and physicist worked to motivate young people, especially girls, to become interested in science and math.

On June 18, 1983, Sally Ride made history when she became the first American woman in space. On Tuesday, Google honored what would have been her 64th birthday with an animated Google Doodle.

Ride was born in Los Angeles on May 26, 1951. While finishing her Ph.D. in physics from Stanford University in 1977, she applied to join NASA and was among one of six women selected to be astronaut candidates.

At the age of 32, Ride became the first American woman in space while on board the Challenger space shuttle. She made another mission into orbit the following year, also on board Challenger.

Sally5

Ride’s partner Tam O’Shaughnessy wrote in a blog post that while in space Ride “realized how important it is for all of us to take care of our fragile home in space, and became an environmentalist.”

After leaving NASA, Ride became the director of the California Space Institute and professor of physics at the University of California at San Diego. She saw how girls were being put off from pursuing careers in science and math and worked to inspire young people, especially girls and minority students, to keep up their interests in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) subjects.

Inge Lehmann

Danish seismologist’s 127th birthday celebrated with Google Doodle

Almost eight decades ago, Danish seismologist Inge Lehmann transformed our perception of Earth, by discovering the existence of an inner core.
To celebrate the 127th birthday of the pioneering scientist, who studied earthquakes to make her findings, Google is showing a Doodle on its front page.

The illustration shows Earth sliced into two, with its molten core shining like a star.

BLine

Inge Lehmann (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.

~~Early life and education~~

Inge Lehmann was born and grew up in Østerbro, a part of Copenhagen. Her father was experimental psychologist Alfred Georg Ludvik Lehmann (1858–1921). She received her school education at a pedagogically progressive high school led by Hanna Adler, Niels Bohr’s aunt. According to Lehmann, her father and Adler were the most significant influences for her intellectual development.

She studied mathematics at the University of Copenhagen and University of Cambridge, interrupted by poor health. She continued her studies of mathematics in Cambridge from 1910-1911 at Newnham College. In 1911, she returned from Cambridge feeling exhausted from the work and put her studies aside for a while.

She developed good computational skills in an actuary office she worked in for a few years until she resumed studies at Copenhagen University in 1918. She completed the candidates magisterii degree in physical science and mathematics in two years. When she returned to Denmark in 1923, she accepted a position at Copenhagen University as an assistant to J.F. Steffensen, the professor of actuarial science.

Google Doodle celebrates Mothering Sunday with tribute to mums across the animal kingdom …. And their children!

Google’s cute animation shows mothers across nature nurturing their young offspring. Cubs, chicks, pups, bunnies and lastly a child are shown in the care of their mother.

Flowers don’t make much of an appearance in this year’s Mother’s Day Google Doodle.

The animated Doodle, designed by Olivia Huynh, honors a range of mothers — human moms and various animal ones — as they’re greeted by their children, cubs, chicks and baby bunnies.

“Brainstorming for this Doodle and thinking of my own mom, lots of small moments and gestures of affection came up, so I decided to concentrate on that as a concept,” Huynh explained. “I spent awhile trying to figure out how I could use style to keep the characters somewhat minimalistic and relatable since Mother’s Day is celebrated all around world.”

While previous Mother’s Day Doodles have tended to incorporate colorful carnations, this year’s Doodle seems to be more in line with what the holiday’s founder would’ve wanted to see. Philadelphia activist Anna Jarvis, who came up with the idea in 1908 to pay a tribute to her mother, later slammed the commercialization of the holiday and the profiteering of Mother’s Day carnations.

Mother’s Day is a modern celebration honoring one’s own mother, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March or May. It complements similar celebrations honoring family members, such as Father’s Day and Siblings Day.

The celebration of Mother’s Day began in the United States in the early 20th century; it is not related to the many celebrations of mothers and motherhood that have occurred throughout the world over thousands of years, such as Pitru Paksha in Ancient India, the Greek cult to Cybele, the Roman festival of Hilaria, or the Christian Mothering Sunday celebration (originally a celebration of the mother church, not motherhood).

Despite this, in some countries, Mother’s Day has become synonymous with these older traditions.

Google Doodle for today … “Nellie Bly’s 151st birthday”!!


N1

~~May 5, 2015~~

Nellie Bly (May 5, 1864– January 27, 1922) was the pen name of American journalist Elizabeth Cochrane Seaman. She was also a writer, industrialist, inventor, and a charity worker who was widely known for her record-breaking trip around the world in 72 days, in emulation of Jules Verne’s fictional character Phileas Fogg, and an exposé in which she faked insanity to study a mental institution from within. She was a pioneer in her field, and launched a new kind of investigative journalism.

As a writer, Bly focused her early work for the Dispatch on the plight of working women, writing a series of investigative articles on women who were factory workers, but editorial pressure pushed her to the so-called “women’s pages” to cover fashion, society, and gardening, the usual role for women journalists of the day.

Dissatisfied with these duties, she took the initiative and traveled to Mexico to serve as a foreign correspondent. Still only 21, she spent nearly half a year reporting the lives and customs of the Mexican people; her dispatches later were published in book form as Six Months in Mexico. In one report, she protested the imprisonment of a local journalist for criticizing the Mexican government, then a dictatorship under Porfirio Díaz. When Mexican authorities learned of Bly’s report, they threatened her with arrest, prompting her to leave the country. Safely home, she denounced Díaz as a tyrannical czar suppressing the Mexican people and controlling the press.

Asylum exposé
Main article: Ten Days in a Mad-House

Burdened again with theater and arts reporting, Bly left the Pittsburgh Dispatch in 1887 for New York City. Penniless after four months, she talked her way into the offices of Joseph Pulitzer’s newspaper, the New York World, and took an undercover assignment for which she agreed to feign insanity to investigate reports of brutality and neglect at the Women’s Lunatic Asylum on Blackwell’s Island.

After a night of practicing deranged expressions in front of a mirror, she checked into a boardinghouse. She refused to go to bed, telling the boarders that she was afraid of them and that they looked “crazy”. They soon decided that she was “crazy”, and the next morning summoned the police. Taken to a courtroom, she pretended to have amnesia. The judge concluded she had been drugged.

Several doctors then examined her; all declared her insane. “Positively demented,” said one, “I consider it a hopeless case. She needs to be put where someone will take care of her.” The head of the insane pavilion at Bellevue Hospital pronounced her “undoubtedly insane”. The case of the “pretty crazy girl” attracted media attention: “Who Is This Insane Girl?” asked the New York Sun. The New York Times wrote of the “mysterious waif” with the “wild, hunted look in her eyes” and her desperate cry: “I can’t remember I can’t remember.”

Committed to the asylum, Bly experienced its conditions firsthand. The food consisted of gruel broth, spoiled beef, bread that was little more than dried dough, and dirty undrinkable water. The dangerous patients were tied together with ropes. The patients were made to sit for much of each day on hard benches with scant protection from the cold. Waste was all around the eating places.

Rats crawled all around the hospital. The bathwater was frigid and buckets of it were poured over their heads. The nurses behaved obnoxiously and abusively, telling the patients to shut up, and beating them if they did not. Speaking with her fellow patients, Bly was convinced that some were as sane as she was.

Who invented the piano?

Google doodle marks Bartolomeo Cristofori‘s 360th birthday

Google’s latest doodle celebrates the 360th birthday of Bartolomeo Cristofori, the man widely credited with inventing the piano.

Cristofori was born in Padua on this day in 1655 in what was then the Republic of Venice.

According to Encyclopaedia Britannica, the instrument Cristofori invented was referred to during his lifetime as a harpsichord that plays soft and loud, from which its name is derived. In Italian, the phrase is gravicembalo col piano e forte.

On the blog dedicated to its doodles, Google wrote that one of Cristofori’s

“biggest innovations was creating a hammer mechanism that struck the strings on a keyboard to create sound. The use of a hammer made it possible to produce softer or louder sounds depending upon how light or hard a player pressed on the keys”.

C11

It added: “Being able to change the volume was a major breakthrough. And that’s exactly what doodler Leon Hong wanted to highlight in this interactive doodle.”

Cristofori’s entry in Encyclopaedia Britannica notes that little is known of his life and that his invention was not well known in his lifetime, even if it has since become ubiquitous.

It reads:

“Cristofori apparently invented the piano around 1709, and, according to contemporary sources, four of his pianos existed in 1711.”

BrownBord

Bartolomeo Cristofori di Francesco (May 4, 1655 – January 27, 1731) was an Italian maker of musical instruments, generally regarded as the inventor of the piano.

Cristofori was born in Padua in the Republic of Venice. Nothing is known of his early life. A tale is told that he served as an apprentice to the great violin maker Nicolò Amati, based on the appearance in a 1680 census record of a “Christofaro Bartolomei” living in Amati’s house in Cremona. However, as Stewart Pollens points out, this person cannot be Bartolomeo Cristofori, since the census records an age of 13, whereas Cristofori according to his baptismal record would have been 25 at the time. Pollens also gives strong reasons to doubt the authenticity of the cello and double bass instruments sometimes attributed to Cristofori.

Probably the most important event in Cristofori’s life is the first one of which we have any record: in 1688, at age 33, he was recruited to work for Prince Ferdinando de Medici. Ferdinando, a lover and patron of music, was the son and heir of Cosimo III, Grand Duke of Tuscany. Tuscany was at a time still a small independent state.

The evidence — all circumstantial — that Cristofori may have been hired as an inventor is as follows. According to Stewart Pollens, there were already a number of qualified individuals in Florence who could have filled the position; however, the Prince passed them over, and paid Cristofori a higher salary than his predecessor. Moreover, Pollens notes, “curiously, [among the many bills Cristofori submitted to his employer] there are no records of bills submitted for Cristofori’s pianofortes … This could mean that Cristofori was expected to turn over the fruits of his experimentation to the court.” Lastly, the Prince was evidently fascinated with machines (he collected over forty clocks, in addition to a great variety of elaborate musical instruments), and would thus be naturally interested in the elaborate mechanical action that was at the core of Cristofori’s work on the piano.

The photo, known as the “Surgeon’s Photograph” was seen as evidence that the sea serpent existed, but it was later revealed to be an elaborate hoax. Nessie was in fact a toy submarine with a plastic wood head and neck shaped like a sea monster, according to the 1999 book Nessie: The Surgeon’s Photograph Exposed. The photo was taken by one of the hoaxers and given to Colonel Robert Wilson, who sold it to the Daily Mail.

“Sketching boats in dockyards was the inspiration for this illustration.

Once I’d assemble working cogs as the Google logo, all that was left was to show a cut away and reveal of what REALLY took place under the surface,”

the Doodle’s artist said.

Loch Ness Facts

Loch Ness is the largest body of fresh water in Britain.

There is more water in Loch Ness than all the other lakes in England, Scotland and Wales put together.

It is around twenty two and a half miles long and between one and one and a half miles wide, a depth of 754 feet with the bottom of the loch being as flat as a bowling green.

It holds 263 thousand million cubic feet of water which is around 16 million 430 thousand million gallons of water with a surface area of 14000 acres and could hold the population of the world 10 times over.

It is fed by 7 major rivers the Oich, Tarff, Enrich, Coiltie, Moriston, Foyers and Farigaig plus numerous burns, with only one outlet the River Ness which flows 7 miles through Inverness into the Moray Firth 52 feet below the loch surface.

During a heavy rainfall the loch’s level has been known to rise by as much as 7 feet and a rise of 2 feet is common place.

The rain catchment area for Loch Ness is so large that a rainfall of just quarter of an inch adds 11.000.000 tons of water to the loch.

It is said that the loch never freezes and this is true.
Because of the great amount of water in the loch a thermocline lies at around 100 feet down in the loch. The top 100 feet of water alters temperature depending on the weather conditions but below the thermocline the temperature never alters from 44 degrees Fahrenheit.

So as the surface water cools in winter and nears freezing point it sinks and is replaced by the warmer water from below.

This can cause the loch to steam on very cold days, in fact it as been estimated that the heat given off by the loch in a winter is the equivalent to burning 2 million tons of coal.

155th Anniversary of the Pony Express

The art of a letter-perfect Google Doodle game

Embedded in the doodle is a game that gives the concept of the Pony Express a digital spin, allowing players to guide their galloping horses along a trail collecting letters while avoiding any collisions with cacti.

The notion of triumph through adversity is so inspirational.

So when William H.Russell, Alexander Majors & William B Waddell founded the Pony Express on April 3rd, 1860, they set in motion a wonderful yet daunting method of communication. What a concept–riders with letters on horseback racing from California to Missouri and vice versa to deliver mail on time!

True to their word, the first mail arrived on April 14th. The Pony Express felt like a great game concept to us at Google. We’ve made time-based games in the past so our new idea was simple.

Collect letters, avoid obstacles and aim for the ultimate 100 letter delivery! We know everyone is busy these days but the Pony Express needs YOU. And ultimately, whatever happens in life, what’s more important than earning trust and respect from a horse?

The Pony Express was a mail service delivering messages, newspapers, mail, and small packages from St. Joseph, Missouri, across the Great Plains, over the Rocky Mountains and the Sierra Nevada to Sacramento, California, by horseback, using a series of relay stations.

During its 18 months of operation, it reduced the time for messages to travel between the Atlantic and Pacific coasts to about 10 days. From April 3, 1860, to October 1861, it became the West’s most direct means of east–west communication before the telegraph was established and was vital for tying the new state of California with the rest of the United States.

The Pony Express was a mail-delivery system of the Leavenworth and Pike’s Peak Express Company of 1859, which in 1860 became the Central Overland California and Pikes Peak Express Company. This firm was founded by William H. Russell, Alexander Majors, and William B. Waddell all of whom were notable in the freighting business.
