Lehman Brothers – penicillin – google.com – Nuremberg – Muhammad Ali – Greenpeace – German Luftwaffe
What happened on this day in history? 15th September.
In 1928 Alexander Fleming discovered the antibiotic penicillin in the mold Penicillium notatum. The use of penicillin actually started when the ancient Egyptians had the practice of applying a poultice of moldy bread to infected wounds.
In 1935 Nuremberg laws were instituted by the Nazi party. The laws revoked citizenship for Jews, forbade them from having relationships with people of non-Jewish origin and made the swastika the official symbol of Germany. The Nuremberg Laws had a crippling economic and social impact on the Jewish community. Persons convicted of violating the marriage laws were imprisoned, and were sent to Nazi concentration camps.
In 1940 The German Luftwaffe suffered the loss of 185 planes in the Battle of Britain. The change forced Hitler to abandon his plans for invading Britain. If Britain lost the battle, and Germany was able to manufacture a successful invasion and capitulation, then the last realistic launchpad for the liberation of Europe would be gone.
In 1971 Greenpeace was founded. They defend the natural world and promote peace by investigating, exposing, and confronting environmental abuse and advocating for the rights and well-being of all people.
In 1978 Boxer Muhammad Ali defeats Leon Spinks at the Louisiana Superdome in New Orleans to win the world heavyweight boxing title for the third time in his career, the first fighter ever to do so. Ali’s determination to overcome racial inequality, his refusal to fight in the Vietnam War, his emergence as a representative of Islam made him by far the most widely known boxer of all time.
In 1997 The domain name “google.com” was registered. The domain now receives 2 trillion searches per year.
In 2008 Lehman Brothers file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. This was the largest bankruptcy in US history with Lehman holding over US$600 billion in assets. The bankruptcy triggered a one-day drop in the Dow Jones Industrial Average of 4.5%, at the time, the largest decline since the September 11, 2001 attacks.
