1496 – Leonardo da Vinci unsuccessfully tests a flying machine.
1870 – The construction of the Brooklyn Bridge begins.
1959 – Alaska is admitted as the 49th U.S. State.
1961 – The United States severs diplomatic relations with Cuba.

Have you thought of a New Years resolution yet?

Recent research shows that while 52% of participants in a resolution study were confident of success with their goals, only 12% actually achieved their goals. A separate study in 2007 by Richard Wisemen from the University of Bristol showed that 78% of those who set New Year resolutions fail, and those who succeed have 5 traits in common. Men achieved their goal 22% more often when they engaged in goal setting, (a system where small measurable goals are being set; such as, a pound a week, instead of saying “lose weight”), while women succeeded 10% more when they made their goals public and got support from their friends.
