Quote of the week:
"In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity."
|Albert Einstein, born March 14, 1879, began his schooling in Munich. In 1895 Einstein failed a university entrance exam examination in Zurich. He did eventually gain admission and graduate, but he couldn't find a job teaching at a university. Einstein eventually became a high school teacher in Switzerland, and then worked in the Swiss patent office. While he worked, he published a number of important scientific papers in theoretical physics and soon obtained a doctorate. Einstein received the Nobel Prize in 1921. He then traveled the world lecturing, but he had to avoid Germany during WWII because of his Jewish heritage. In 1940, Einstein became a US citizen. He died in 1955 in Princeton, NJ.|
