What was happending in the world 100 years ago on January 3rd, 2013. What was happening in the world on January 3rd, 1913. Here are 5 stories from New York Times.Number 5 - President William Taft’s chauffer got the President’s car stuck in the mud on a road a mile from the White House. After 10 minutes of trying to get the vehicle loose, the President decided to start walking back. You gotta wonder what Secret Service would think of that today.Number 4 An exciting new telegraph was invented that would allow you to send and receive 1,820 words a minute. Could anyone have imagined today's communications technology at that time?Number 3- 'The Sun is Smiling in Jamaica' as a large ad noted. It also specifically mentioned that it'd take just 5 days to go on a ship from New York. Not a bad deal considering commercial flights didn't exist at that time.Number 2 - a train operator was knocked unconscious by a blast of steam from a busted engine pipe and the train ran for 2 miles unoperated. Today’s trains have a “dead man’s switch”, which will bring the train to a stop should the operator become unconscious or incapacitated. Number 1 - Nobel Prize winner Dr. Alexis Carrel announced that he had an experimental procedure that would cure a broken leg in 4 days. In this particular case, we don't seem to be there yet. Perhaps, he was well ahead of his time.
