Mary Anning Report Abuse
Mary Anning (21 May 1799 – 9 March 1847) was a British fossil collector, dealer and palaeontologist who became known around the world for a number of important finds she made in the Jurassic age marine fossil beds at Lyme Regis, where she lived. Her work contributed to the fundamental changes in scientific thinking about prehistoric life and the history of the earth that occurred in the early 19th century, and yet she is barely known today, while Darwin has become a household name. Her discoveries included the first ichthyosaur skeleton to be correctly identified, which she and her brother, Joseph, found when she was just twelve years old, the first two plesiosaur skeletons ever found, the first pterosaur skeleton located outside Germany, and some important fish fossils. Because of her sex and religious rebellion, much of her work was never published and, in fact, she rarely even received credit for her scientific contributions.

Vilfred Pareto Report Abuse
Italian Economist,sociologist.The Mind and Society,governing elites,social inequalities and class consciousness sharpen cultural and stuctural divisions.The medical and health care debates centre around welfare economics notions as the challenge to exchange and the stigma of poor in new age economics, Methodological Frame of the Field , LL.B is more on variable of spatial distance rather than risks of dependency.Stigmatized people may reject the dominant criteria of social evaluation by choosing alternative lifestyles but the stigmatizing experience of the market maybe carried over into non-market situations. Medical care offers the example of unequal distribution of knowledge.In uncertainity ,information and knowledge becomes a commodity.Economists like K.J Arrow have argued this since 1963.( Mother Jones-Economics of Higher Education).The Obama Barack Administration in USA faced this most difficult question of Welfare Economics.

David Hume Report Abuse
Philosopher, atheism,empiricsm and natural law.A Treatise on Human Nature, Dialogue concerning Natural Religions, Essays Moral and Political,Political Discourses, History of England. His views inspired Kant to argue about the inadequacy of empiricsm.
106 points - added 7 years ago by lance.bensch - 1 comment
Comments:
Sadly not very influential. He was highly influential to a small number of scholars in his own day (most obviously Reid) but people of his time knew him chiefly as a historian for his five volume (or is it six?) History of England. His influence on Kant is misstated above, it is rather that he impressed upon Kant the empistemic inadequacies of traditional rationalism and thus a need to provide a better support for it in the form of a half-way house between empiricism and rationalism (Kant not wishing the scepticial empiricism of Hume to rule the day). Around a generation after Hume's death very few people were reading him, happy to assume the accuracy of the 'cartoon' version of Hume as a slapdash sceptic which was put about (and which the Treatise doesn't do a very good job of defending against, being partly ironical) and it's not until the likes of Norman Kemp Smith that Hume gains a widespread readership /amongst philosophers/. What the average member of the public knows about his views are almost certainly all erroneous. His historical influence is dubious; he had very little. His philosophical significance if profound.

Silvio Berlusconi Report Abuse
Silvio Berlusconi, is an Italian politician, Prime Minister of Italy. He is also known under the nickname Il Cavaliere, due to the knighthood Order of Merit for Labour which he received in 1977. He is the second longest-serving Prime Minister of Italy, a position he has held on three separate occasions: from 1994 to 1995, from 2001 to 2006 and currently since 2008. Technically, Berlusconi has been sworn in four times because after a cabinet reshuffle, as happened with Berlusconi in 2005, the new ministry is sworn in and subjected to a vote of confidence. He is the leader of the People of Freedom political movement, a centre-right party he founded in 2009. As of November 2009, he is the longest-serving current leader of a G8 country. As of 2010, Berlusconi's political rise was rapid. He was elected as a Member of Parliament for the first time and appointed as Prime Minister following the March 1994 snap parliamentary elections, when Forza Italia gained a relative majority a mere three months after having been officially launched. However, his cabinet collapsed after seven months, due to internal disagreements in his coalition. In the April 1996 snap parliamentary elections, Berlusconi ran for Prime Minister again but was defeated by centre-left candidate Romano Prodi. In the May 2001 parliamentary elections, he was again the centre-right candidate for Prime Minister and won against the centre-left candidate Francesco Rutelli. Berlusconi then formed his second and third cabinets, until 2006. Berlusconi was leader of the centre-right coalition in the April 2006 parliamentary elections, which he lost by a very narrow margin, his opponent again being Romano Prodi. He was re-elected in the parliamentary elections of April 2008 following the collapse, on 24 January 2008, of Romano Prodi's government and sworn in as prime minister on 8 May 2008.

Jimmy Wales Report Abuse
Wikimedia Foundation is the parent company of Wikipedia, an online encyclopedia. He is cited as founder of Wikipedia which is disputed by many as as being a product of the ideas of Larry Sanger and Jimmy Wales.Florence Devmont of the Board of Wikipedia Foundation is also not clear on this issue. The model of collaboration is considered a failure as its so called editor and editorial boards are fake e-mail ID's and full of pseudonyms like Xxahipphe, Choochi'yo and so on.Cyber cafe culture of letting out frustrations is the method mostly.The future of collaboration model is under question and the site claims it would be adding a new layer of editorial oversight. The quality of encyclopedic content is propoganda by politicians and so called notables, Articles are of the poorest quality and verfiability is based on citations in newspapers and online journals which makes it an appendage of the same propoganda machinery which free internet is opposed to.

Renato Dulbecco Report Abuse
Renato Dulbecco (born February 22, 1914) is an Italian virologist who won a 1975 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his work on reverse transcriptase. In 1973 he was awarded the Louisa Gross Horwitz Prize from Columbia University together with Theodore Puck and Harry Eagle. Dulbecco was the recipient of the Selman A. Waksman Award in Microbiology in 1974. Dulbecco and his group demonstrated that the infection of normal cells with certain types of viruses (oncoviruses) led to the incorporation of virus-derived genes into the host-cell genome, and that this event lead to the transformation (the acquisition of a tumor phenotype) of those cells. As demonstrated by Temin and Baltimore, who shared the Nobel Prize with Dulbecco, the transfer of viral genes to the cell is mediated by an enzyme called reverse transcriptase (or, more precisely, RNA-dependent DNA polymerase), which replicates the viral genome (in this case made of RNA) into DNA, which is later incorporated in the host genome. Oncoviruses are the cause of some forms of human cancers. Dulbecco's study gave a basis for precise understanding of the molecular mechanisms by which they propagate, thus allowing us to better fight them. Furthermore, the mechanisms of carcinogenesis mediated by oncoviruses closely resemble the process by which normal cells degenerate into cancer cells. Dulbecco's discoveries allowed us to better understand and fight cancer. he's considered from the international scientific community the inventor of the genetic engineering!

Don(ald George) Bradman Report Abuse
Cricket, Australian cricketer who set records including the highest score(452 not out).Cricket is a bat and ball team game. A similar game was played in the mid-16th century, but the first county match was played in 1719.The earliest known laws of cricket were drawn up in 1744 and the Marylebone Cricket Club(MCC) was founded in 1787.The first test match was played at Melbourne in 1877.The game was adopted by most countries under the British Empire during the heydays of Imperialism. County championships still remain the epitome for cricketers in post-imperialist world order. One day cricket and several other variants of limited overs cricket has evolved with new names like Brian Lara, Sachin Tendulkor etc. and a mad rush to establish world records goes on.
