The University of Heidelberg opened today (1386). Also, Boston shoemakers formed the first U.S. labor organization (1648), the U.S. took possession of Alaska (1867) and Puerto Rico (1898), and women were deemed “persons” under Canadian law (1929). And Texas Instruments announced the first transistor radio (1954).

Greetings and social banter here.

Good morning! ::hugggggs::
