Hump Day – May 10th, 2017
What is hump day? It’s Wednesday. The hump to your work week. 2 days down and 2 days to go. On hump days I will be sharing articles, videos, or other form of entertainment. It will include links to other posts I have liked throughout the week. Some are parenting articles, others are personal finance ones, and occasionally there will be a random funny article. Enjoy!
On this date
In 1955 on this date Jonas Salk successfully tested the first Polio vaccine. At the time Polio was the biggest public-health problem in post-war US. This changed the course of US many people’s lives. Amazingly when asked who owned the patent he said: “There is no patent. Could you patent the sun?” (courtesy of OnThisDay.com).
