Dr C W W Kannangara Report Abuse
Dr C W W Kannangara founded free education in Sri Lanka by bringing an act of parliament in the year 1944 resulting the freedom of education for all walks of life including the children of poorest of the poor, remotest of the rural villages. Until 1944 the education beyond first 8 years of school was a priviledge only to the students who can pay for their education all the way up to obtaining a University degree. After introduction of free education act in Sri Lanka the number of students graduating from high schools and from Universities has consistently been increasing over the past 65 years or so. A large numbers graduating from Sri Lankan Universities not only served Sri Lanka but also contributed increasingly towards the growth of the developed countries such as USA, Canada, Australia, UK, Germany, Japan, and of many other developing countries. This single most important act helped maintain not only the literacy rate but also the continuous flow of brilliant minds to work in the Global environment contributing to the development of the World at large. As the numbers increase with years to come the positive impact of this far sighted act of Dr C W W Kannangara will become increasingly visible.

Oh, I'm sorry, have you met every single woman in the world?? She's pretty, but certainly not the most beautiful. And why she is on this list is ridiculous, what the hell has she done that is so influential?? Might as well put Paris Hilton, at least she's a greater influence on pop culture

Economist, Linear programming and theory of the firm, an operational method for dealing with economic relationships which involve discontinuities.Economic units attain goals in either the theory of games with uncertainity in oligipolistic markets or imperfect markets, instead of curves( non linear) the relationship involved between variables are straight lines (linear). The problem of the firm given its resourcesis find the optimal mix to maximize revenue or profits as an objective function subject to technical and non-negativity constraints.A graphical determination of feasible solutions is made from which an optimal solution is found by the tangency of the frontier of the region of feasible solutions. The simplex method with slack variables or the iterative procedure from a feasible solution can beused.The basic problem is called theprimal problem and shadow prices of the factors is taken. The Dual problem would take cost minimization or restructuring into consideration. A Charnes, P Samuelson are some other names associated with the development of this theory.

Comments:
100 years after Darwin there is still not one evidence of his theory to be right, but an overwhelming mass of material against the theory. More and more scientists agree with that. Darwinism is the greatest fake and has nothing to do with science since science always proves the correctness of theories.

most influential person of the last 200 years, sometimes with disasterous results (eg nazi philosophy), but he was the man who 'killed god', and evolution isn't questioned by anyone who has a BSc or higher and didn't fall down a few sets of stairs when they were children

The description is wrong. Darwin;s work read alongside Gregor MENDEL lead to the modern theory of evolution. Lamarck's theory was a rival to Darwin's and has been thoroughly falsified (save for some rough analogy in the form of epigenetic influences). Please change this; praising a man as influential which displaying a basic ignorance of his work is embarrassing.

Definitely man. And it is not 'just a theory' anymore it is a proven fact. People who disagree are just choosing to avoid looking at the evidence because they cant live knowing there is no God or religion or any other made up random stuff. Another fact ;-)

Only questioned by those who believe that everything came into being as it is today all at once...eg Creationists. There is no disagreement whatsoever that Evolution is a law as well established as the law of gravitation.

Abner Doubleday Report Abuse
Invented baseball in 1839 by laying out the diamond shaped field. Team game with two sides, The team at at tries to score the most runs by having their players circle the bases before they are put out by the other team. An out is made when the fielding team takes a catch, tags the batter between bases or touches the base before an offensive player reaches the base. Fielding is with gloves called mitt and the confrontation is between the batter and pitcher.Each game is made of 9 innings and each inning is divided into top and bottom. If the batter swings and fails to hit the ball or if the pitcher throws the ball in the strike zone between batters knee and chest without the batter swinging at the ball it is a strike. Three strikes mean a batter is out. If the pitcher fails to throw the ball in strike zone and the batter does not swing, a ball is called. Four balls allow the batter to take first base If the batter strikes the ball and circles the bases before being put out, he has hit a home run.

According to Wikipedia: The once widely accepted story that Abner Doubleday invented baseball in Cooperstown, New York, in 1839 has been conclusively debunked by sports historians.
