A Brief History:
Origination: National Inventors’ Day was yesterday, and it is a day to honor all inventors of the past, the present-day creators, and the encouragement of the inventors of the future. On February 11th, National Inventors’ Day celebrates the genius behind design. It also dives into the history behind some of our most unusual inventions.

Precedence: Inventors should keep track of their creations, ideas, processes, ingredients, and components and not divulge too much information. To be a successful inventor, you need protect your inventions and also get your unique creations patented with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. It is important to note that if you are a person working on a patent, and you are on your employer’s clock or salary, and on the employer’s premises while creating the invention, legally, you seize your right to the invention, so if you are creating, you must make sure that you are on your own time and in your own place while creating the invention.

Celebrated: February 11th every year, which is the same day as Thomas Edison’s birthday–since 1983 when President Ronald Reagan instituted the day as a proclaimed day!

* It is important to note that Edward Jenner’s specification on a vaccination om “immunity” was altered in 2021 by the CDC to read “protection”. Therefore an official discrepancy because the CDC cannot change a definition due to lack of authority to do such..

The Present:
People all over the world, are enjoying the gadgets, services and necessities that make living in a modern era possible!

The Future:
We really have a deficit of inventions over the past half century, specifically the last three decades, most of which are technological inventions these days. A lot of this has to do with the failing education system where we are stuck on teaching thinking mathematics and science are not important. I am breaking the bad news to those who probably don’t want to hear it, but language, science and mathematics are very important! We are in dire need of an education overhaul, and they need to start teaching–like yesterday, and not delay children’s educations such as they did or are doing with the handling of COVID-19—like never, EVER again! Our modern world is in great need of those enthusiastic young inventors. Our best investment ever is with our youth! The generations need new and interesting and entertaining inventions to keep the modern world, that–modern–now, and in the years to come. . .
