Chronicle of David Beckam



It’s hard to think of a more famous name in the world than that of David Beckham. The man is not only an incredibly talented footballer but an entire brand of his own. He has one of the most recognizable faces in the world. He is the highest paid footballer ever. His club and international performances have been spectacular. Beckham represents everything the modern game of football is. It’s just as much about the individual as it is the team he plays for. The man is an idol. The man is Golden Balls.


David Robert Joseph Beckham comes from a modest home in Leytonstone, near London. Son of Ted, a kitchen fitter and devoted Manchester United fan, as a boy David would visit Old Trafford and dream about putting on a red shirt himself. His dream came true on his 14th birthday when David joined the Man Utd Youth Team.
David was one of a number of young boys showing huge potential at the time in the Man Utd youth division and the club manager Sir Alex Ferguson was a great believer in the system. This confidence prompted Ferguson to place some of the young rising stars into his first team selections. Beckham got his first chance in a League Cup game against Brighton and Hove Albion in 1992. He quickly impressed and his unbelievable accuracy with passing the ball made him a strong choice as first-team winger. He took Eric Cantona’s number 7 shirt made it his own.
Beckham came along during the latter stages of Manchester United’s domination of English football during the nineties. He represented the best of their new wave of young home-grown players. In the years that followed his time with United, Beckham helped them to the treble in 1998/99 (which included the Champions League title) and he won the UEFA Club Player of the Year for his part that season.
He notched up 62 goals for the United, many from set-pieces, as well as countless goal assists. Although he was already a legend with the Red Devils, there were slightly devious goings on happening off the pitch between the manager Ferguson and Beckham. Much of this stemmed from the overwhelming celebrity status that Beckham was rapidly earning. Ferguson didn’t feel Becks’ wife Victoria was much help to his football. In a famous and rather petty incident with a flying boot in the changing room, it seemed clear that Beckham’s time with his beloved Manchester United would soon be up.
Out of all the dozens of clubs willing to pay the earth for the remarkably talented Becks, Spanish heavy-weights Real Madrid were the ones he wanted to join the most. With so many of the world’s best players in the team, who wouldn’t? Beckham joined Real Madrid in 2003 and would go on to play for them for four years, wearing the number 23 shirt and playing 113 games in total. He quickly became an idol for the club and on the day of his transfer the replica shirt bearing his name completely sold out.
Partnering such talents as Figo, Raul, Ronaldo and Zidane didn’t make Becks at all shy. He would play a crucial part in the clubs Champions League campaigns and eventually would be a huge weapon in their winning of the La Liga title in his last season for them in 2006/07.
Controversy surrounding his club departure again though as he was increasingly dropped from the first team and ignored by the coach. Beckham knew it was time to move on. But where he would go to, no one but he would now decide.
In Jan 2007 David signed for US team LA Galaxy for a fee that would see him pocket over £128 million over five years. He didn’t do it for the money though he said. He didn’t do it do bring football (or soccer) to American either. Why he did it, only he knows. He has been welcomed in America like a Hollywood star and his new mansion in Beverly Hills overlooks Tom Cruise’s back garden. The distance across the Atlantic, together with the American’s different season timetable, has meant critics feel his international career is now over. But Becks once again proved these critics wrong.
Beckham has had the most roller-coaster England career since Gazza. It certainly seems for Becks that the higher the highs, the lower the lows. It began in 1996 against Moldova under Glenn Hoddle. The 1998 World Cup in France saw the lowest of the lows for his international career. Beckham’s foot flung out and kicked Argentinean Diego Simone and he literally saw red. His sending off meant the end of England’s tournament and, for the months that followed, the England fans and press took their anger out on Becks. It looked like the end for his international career before it had really got started.
In a remarkable display of resilience Beckham put the incident behind him and worked at gaining back the respect of the English. He did so and he did it a hundred times over with 10/10 performances and goals in numerous back to back matches. He was rewarded with the captain’s armband under Sven-Goran Eriksson and he scored the biggest goal of his career against Greece to secure England’s place in the 2002 World Cup. Here it is again
Although injuries started to plague him, Beckham came back for the Argentina game in that World Cup and scored the penalty that would win the game. In the Euro 2004 he didn’t perform at his best but then neither did any Englishman. Finally Beckham stepped down as captain when the new manager Steve McClaren took over. McClaren then dropped Beckham from his team entirely.
Becks now definitely looked dead and buried for England. But, much like Zidane and France, he ploughed on and played amazingly well for his club team and he was finally rewarded with being recalled to play for England and to try and secure them qualification to the Euro 2008 tournament. He was welcomed back with open arms.
Although his football life has enough drama to fill a thousand column pages, David’s life off the pitch is perhaps where most of the stories have come from. As a young man he was an obvious successor to the other Man United pin-up Ryan Giggs and his blonde locks soon caught the eye of the celebrity girls about town. Spice Girl Victoria ‘Posh’ Adams was the lucky girl and the two married in 1999 with the wedding costing around half a million pounds.
They settled down at Beckingham Palace, near London, where they brought up three boys Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz. Always in the glossy mags, tabloids and on TV, the family became the most famous people in Britain, with celeb mates such as Elton John and Liz Hurley. They moved to Spain when David signed for Madrid and it was here that rumours started about David having had a couple of affairs, one with Rebecca Loos, all of which Becks denied.
Million pound sponsorships, perfumes, clothing ranges, and many more business deals have seen the Beckhams net millions over the years. They are by no means uncharitable though. David is a huge and generous UNICEF supporter as well as Malaria No More and countless others.
David Beckham is a national treasure. He is famous all over the world and for much more than just football. His determination and resilient focus on the pitch is echoed in his personal life and now, only in his thirties, he has plenty more time to become more of the legend that he is.

Erick Cantona Manchester United Legend


Has there ever been a more ‘French’ Frenchman in football than Eric Cantona? He is perhaps one of the most iconic men to have ever played the game - a loose canon on and off the pitch, with his tall frame balanced by finesse, flair and skill the like the English game had never seen before. Ooh Ahh said fans of Cantona and he certainly gave them something to ooh and ahh about.
So the Nike advert goes, Eric Daniel Pierre Cantona was born in a big year for English football, 1966. His parents moved from Paris to the south in Marseille, where Eric began to hone his love of the beautiful game. His father was a huge influence on him and pretty soon Eric was attracting the spying eyes of the talent-scouting clubs, who took boys as professionals at only 14.
In 1981, when Eric was 15, he joined the Auxerre youth team. There he was spotted by the French national youth team too, but Eric had to do his duty to France in more ways than football back then. The time had come for him to complete his year of national service in the army.
Eric completed his stint but kept up the football throughout and went straight to Auxerre upon his return and right into their first team. After a promising period with Auxerre, a bout of illness led to him being dropped before going to Martigues on loan and then in 1988 to Marseille. Eric remained at Marseille until 1991, but during this period he was loaned to a couple of other clubs before finally being taken by Nimes in 1991.
The fires of the Frenchman’s belly were starting to bubble up. His temper on the pitch, which had been a huge part of his rocky eight years in French football, now made him a trouble-maker at Nimes and it was French legend Michel Platini who suggested Eric should move to the more aggressive game over the English Channel.
Eric was going to sign for Sheffield Wednesday but it was rival Yorkshire club Leeds United who nabbed the Frenchman. He became a vital part of the Leeds side that won the last ever 1st Division before it became the Premier League in 1991/92. As Platini predicted, Cantona enjoyed the English ethos and discovered quite the goalscoring touch for the Whites, none more so than in the 1992 Charity Shield, where he bagged a hat-trick against rivals Liverpool.
Sadly Leeds Utd failed to cut it in the new Premier League in the following season and their beloved French star Cantona left the club in Nov 1992 and joined giants of the English game Manchester United for what would become one of the biggest bargains in football - only £1.2 million. Man Utd needed a goal scorer and in Cantona they certainly got that.

It’s questionable whether the complete dominance Man Utd had on the English game in the nineties would have been possible had it not been for ooh ahh Cantona. He appeared in 143 games for the Red Devils between 1992-97 with a fine return of 84 goals. He made an explosive start at Old Trafford and, in the first two seasons arriving from Leeds, Eric helped United win the next two league titles, the FA Cup and picked up the individual reward of 1994 PFA Player of the Year.
His skill was immense and the partnerships he had with wingers such as Ryan Giggs and fellow striker Mark Hughes made United an unstoppable force. But it wasn’t long before those fires were ignited once again and an incident at Crystal Palace in January 1995 would become a defining moment in the man’s entire career.
Fan abuse directed at players is the norm, but Cantona took issue with a certain Matthew Simmons at Crystal Palace. Finally snapping after being sent off, Cantona would deliver the most infamous kick in football, directed at Simmons. Cantona received a year long ban and 120 hours of community-service for assault. United consequently lost the league title to Blackburn that year.
Press speculated that Eric would be sold after this incident but manager Sir Alex Ferguson had faith in his star Frenchman and he was rewarded for his belief. Eric returned to form and he scored on his first game back against Liverpool. Manchester United went on to win the league title that year again.
Cantona helped United to 6 out of 7 league titles as well as numerous other cup wins. However in 1997 Eric announced his early retirement aged only 30. It came as a surprise to everyone but Eric. He simply felt he had archived enough so he hung up his boots and turned down his collar.
Cantona’s international playing career remains a mystery. His club form was never replicated for his nation. His debut was way back in 1987 but it wasn’t until he was made captain in 1996 for the qualifying stages of the European Championships that he seemed likely to shine. Sadly, his kung fu exploits meant he was banned from playing that year for France too and when he returned, even though it was in time to join his team mates for Euro 96, the French coach Aimé Jacquet made the (arguably correct) choice to stick with the emerging Zinedine Zidane.
Eric told fans and press that he was supporting England and not France during the competition. He would never play for his country again.
Cantona’s colourful character meant he was always as popular outside football as much as on the pitch. When he retired Eric began a career as an actor and appeared in a number of short films and feature films in France. His biggest acting role came alongside Cate Blanchett in the historical film Elizabeth.
His cheeky flair was also perfect for advertising and sports giants Nike snapped him up to front their cool new adverts that featured other top footballers. However, Cantona has also taken to some rather more strange exploits, for example as coach of the French Beach Football side, taking them to their own World Cup in 2006, where they finished third.
Eric remains one of the most talked about and unique players the game has ever seen. In England and in the Manchester United number 7 shirt (with that collar turned up) he was a magician. He made the ball do the hard work, as his father had once taught him. He was what the French would call, la pièce de la résistance

John Cristoper Depp II (Jhonny Depp)

 John Christopher "Johnny" Depp II is an American actor, producer and musician. He has won the Golden Globe Award and Screen Actors Guild award for Best Actor. Depp rose to prominence on the 1980s television series 21 Jump Street, becoming a teen idol. Dissatisfied with that status, Depp turned to film for more challenging roles; he played the title character of Edward Scissorhands (1990) and later found box office success in films such as Sleepy Hollow (1999), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), Rango (2011) and the Pirates of the Caribbean film series (2003–present). He has collaborated with director and friend Tim Burton in eight films through Dark Shadows (2012).

Depp has gained acclaim for his portrayals of people such as Ed Wood, in Ed Wood, Joseph D. Pistone in Donnie Brasco, Hunter S. Thompson in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, George Jung in Blow, and the bank robber John Dillinger in Michael Mann's Public Enemies. Films featuring Depp have grossed over $3.1 billion at the United States box office and over $7.6 billion worldwide.[3] He has been nominated for top awards many times, winning the Best Actor Awards from the Golden Globes for Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and from the Screen Actors Guild for Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. He also has garnered a sex symbol status in American cinema, being twice named as the "Sexiest Man Alive" by People magazine[4] in 2003 and 2009. He has been listed in the 2012 Guinness Book of World Records as the highest paid actor, with $75 million. (Wikipedia)

Johnny Depp was raised in Florida. He dropped out of school at age 15 in the hopes of becoming a rock musician. He fronted a series of garage bands including The Kids, which once opened for Iggy Pop. Depp got into acting after a visit to Los Angeles, California, with his former wife, Lori Anne Allison (Lori A. Depp), who introduced him to actor Nicolas Cage. He made his film debut in A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984). Johnny Depp is perhaps one of the most versatile actors of his day and age in Hollywood, who has recuperated his image greatly since his portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow in the acclaimed Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003), with a supporting cast of Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley, and Geoffrey Rush. By mikedavies86

Though highly successful now, Depp's early life, strangely, was as a rebel, and he took to vandalism and narcotics. He dropped out of school when he was 15, and he fronted a series of music-garage bands, including one named The Kids. However, it was when he married Lori Anne Allison (Lori A. Depp) that he took up the job of being a ballpoint-pen salesman to support himself and his wife. A visit to Los Angeles, California, with his wife, however, happened to be a blessing in disguise, when he met up with actor Nicolas Cage, who advised him to turn to acting, which culminated in Depp's film debut in the low-budget horror film, A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984), where he played a teenager who falls prey to dream-stalking demon Freddy Krueger. Three years later, Depp achieved fame as police cop Tom Hanson in the series "21 Jump Street" (1987) (1987-90), and in 1990, he was firmly established as a leading Hollywood actor with the Tim Burton movie Edward Scissorhands (1990), where he played a sad-faced, tragic hero who has scissors for hands.
From then on, Depp was selective of his choice of roles in movies, and he more often than not played dark, sinister characters on-screen. He played an undercover FBI agent in Donnie Brasco (1997), in which he co-starred with Al Pacino; a druggie in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998); and in two more Tim Burton ventures, Ed Wood (1994) and Sleepy Hollow (1999), with Christina Ricci and Casper Van Dien. He filmed a fifth Tim Burton film, Corpse Bride (2005), as well as being committed for another Tim Burton production, where he plays Willy Wonka in the upcoming Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), based on the classic children's novel by Roald Dahl.

During his career, Depp has, unfortunately, gotten himself under bad public scrutiny. He was accused of selling drugs at his own club, The Viper Room, in regard to the legendary celebrity, River Phoenix, who died outside the club due to drug overdose in 1993. The following year, Depp was arrested for smashing and trashing a New York suite. And, in 1999, he was arrested in London for being in a fight with paparazzi outside a restaurant.
Although he gained popularity since the success of Edward Scissorhands (1990), Depp wasn't hugely famous for many years until his portrayal of the suave, charming Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003) in 2003. With the film's enormous success, it has opened several doors for his career and even included an Oscar nomination. He appeared as the central character in the Stephen King-based movie, Secret Window (2004); as the kind-hearted novelist James Barrie in the factually-based Finding Neverland (2004), where he co-starred with Kate Winslet; and most recently as Rochester in the British film, The Libertine (2004).

Fidel Castro Cuban Revolutioner

Fidel Castro Ruz was born August 13, 1926, on a sugar plantation in eastern Cuba, the son of a Spanish immigrant landholder and a household servant. A powerful and charismatic speaker, he soon emerged as one of the leaders in the growing movement against the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista.
Fidel Castro spent his youngest years on his father's farm, but spent most of his youth in Catholic boarding schools, excelling at sports.

Castro Cuba’s Revolutioner

In 1945, Castro began law school at the University of Havana and quickly became involved in politics. In 1947, Castro joined the Caribbean Legion, a group of political exiles from Caribbean countries who planned to rid the Caribbean of dictator-led governments. When Castro joined, the Legion was planning to overthrow Generalissimo Rafael Trujillo of the Dominican Republic but the plan was later canceled because of international pressure.

In 1948, Castro traveled to Bototá, Colombia with plans to disrupt the Pan-American Union Conference, when country-wide riots broke out in response to the assassination of Jorge Eliecer Gaitán. Castro grabbed a rifle and joined the rioters. While handing out anti-U.S. pamphlets to the crowds, Castro gained first-hand experience of popular uprisings.

After returning to Cuba, Castro married co-student Mirta Diaz-Balart in October 1948. Castro and Mirta had one child together. In the morning of July 26, 1953, Castro, his brother Raúl, and a group of about 160 armed men attacked the second-largest military base in Cuba - the Moncada Barracks in Santiago de Cuba. Confronted with hundreds of trained soldiers at the base, there was little chance that the attack could have succeeded. Although 60 of Castro's rebels were killed, Castro and Raúl were captured and then given a trial.

After delivering a speech at his trial which ended with, "Condemn me. It does not matter. History will absolve me," Castro was sentenced to 15 years in prison. He was released two years later, in May 1955.  Upon his release, Castro went to Mexico where he spent the next year organizing the "26th of July Movement" (based on the date of the failed Moncada Barracks attack).

On December 2, 1956, Castro and the rest of the 26th of July Movement rebels landed on Cuban soil with the intention of starting a revolution. Met by heavy Batista defenses, nearly everyone in the Movement was killed, with merely a handful escaping, including Castro, Raúl, and Che Guevara.

For the next two years, Castro continued guerrilla attacks and succeeded in gaining large numbers of volunteers.

Using guerrilla warfare tactics, Castro and his supporters attacked Batista's forces, overtaking town after town.

Batista quickly lost popular support and suffered numerous defeats. On January 1, 1959, Batista fled Cuba.

In his later years, Mr. Castro cultivated a strong friendship and alliance with Venezuela's leftist president, Hugo Chavez. Together, the two men worked to counter U.S. influence in Latin America - and met some success in mobilizing anti-American sentiment in the hemisphere.

Another Cuba specialist, Thomas Paterson of the University of Connecticut, compares Mr. Castro to Chinese leader Mao Zedong, and believes he will be remembered this way.

"I think he will be remembered much as Mao Zedong is remembered in China as one who overthrew a corrupt, dictatorial system, who embodied the identity of his nation, who pushed out foreigners," said Paterson. "At the same time, as is the case of the Chinese critique of Mao today, there will be a criticism of him as authoritarian, repressive and having imposed incredible sacrifices on the Cuban people."

Marilyn Monroe Sexy Celebrity Ever

Marilyn Monroe was born Norma Jeanne on June 1 1926. Her mother was Gladys Baker, she never knew her father. Marilyn’s mother had psychological problems and was committed to a mental institution. Then on Marilyn lived in and out of orphanages and foster homes until the age of sixteen. She married Jimmy Doherty at sixteen so she wouldn’t have to return the orphanage. She was discovered by David Conover when she was working at Radio Plane Munitions factory. Then after she received modeling jobs. She divorced Jimmy in 1946 and signed her first contract with Twentieth Century Fox Norma  changed her name to Marilyn Monroe burrowing her grandmother’s last name Monroe..
In 1948, Monroe signed a six-month contract with Columbia Pictures and was introduced to the studio's head drama coach Natasha Lytess, who became her acting coach for several years.[29] Monroe was soon cast in a major role in the low-budget musical Ladies of the Chorus (1948). Monroe was capitalized as one of the film's bright spots, and the film enjoyed only moderate success.[30] During her short stint at Columbia, studio head Harry Cohn softened her appearance somewhat by correcting a slight overbite she had.
After the release of the poorly reviewed Ladies of the Chorus and being dropped by Columbia, Monroe had to struggle to find work. She particularly wanted film work, and when the offers didn't come, she returned to modeling. In 1949, she caught the eye of photographer Tom Kelley, who convinced her to pose nude. Monroe was laid out on a large fabric of red silk and posed for countless shots. She was paid $50 and signed the model release form as "Mona Monroe". This was the only time that Monroe was paid for her nude posing.
In 1961 after she had divorced her third husband Aurther Miller, there were rumors that she was having an affair with the President John F. Kennedy and his brother Robert F. Kennedy. It is also a rumor that she had an affair with Frank Sinatura
Symptoms that Monroe had was her lack of interest in things she enjoyed doing. Marilyn became more and more late for movie sets and sometimes didn’t show up at all. Due to miscarriages Monroe seeked drugs and alcohol as an escape from the depression. Marilyns divorce from Arthur Miller was a cause of her depression. After the breakup she tried to seek solitude but reporters were so eager to talk to her. One reporter even chipped her tooth by accidently shoving a microphone into her mouth. An event that also heightened her depression was the loss of her friend and co-star in the film “The Misfits” Clark Gable. This became severe when Clarks Kay Gable widow blamed Marilyn for his death. Marilyns thoughts of killing a person she deeply admired was to much to bear. She was briefly committed to a mental hospital during the filming of Somethings Got to Give. Two months later Marilyn was found dead in her home in Los Angeles surrounded by sleeping pills. Her cause of death was an overdose and is possibly

Albert Einstein the most Genius man ever

Albert Einstein was born at Ulm, in Württemberg, Germany, on March 14, 1879. Six weeks later the family moved to Munich, where he later on began his schooling at the Luitpold Gymnasium. Later, they moved to Italy and Albert continued his education at Aarau, Switzerland and in 1896 he entered the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich to be trained as a teacher in physics and mathematics. In 1901, the year he gained his diploma, he acquired Swiss citizenship and, as he was unable to find a teaching post, he accepted a position as technical assistant in the Swiss Patent Office. In 1905 he obtained his doctor's degree.

During his stay at the Patent Office, and in his spare time, he produced much of his remarkable work and in 1908 he was appointed Privatdozent in Berne. In 1909 he became Professor Extraordinary at Zurich, in 1911 Professor of Theoretical Physics at Prague, returning to Zurich in the following year to fill a similar post. In 1914 he was appointed Director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Physical Institute and Professor in the University of Berlin. He became a German citizen in 1914 and remained in Berlin until 1933 when he renounced his citizenship for political reasons and emigrated to America to take the position of Professor of Theoretical Physics at Princeton*. He became a United States citizen in 1940 and retired from his post in 1945.

After World War II, Einstein was a leading figure in the World Government Movement, he was offered the Presidency of the State of Israel, which he declined, and he collaborated with Dr. Chaim Weizmann in establishing the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Einstein always appeared to have a clear view of the problems of physics and the determination to solve them. He had a strategy of his own and was able to visualize the main stages on the way to his goal. He regarded his major achievements as mere stepping-stones for the next advance.

At the start of his scientific work, Einstein realized the inadequacies of Newtonian mechanics and his special theory of relativity stemmed from an attempt to reconcile the laws of mechanics with the laws of the electromagnetic field. He dealt with classical problems of statistical mechanics and problems in which they were merged with quantum theory: this led to an explanation of the Brownian movement of molecules. He investigated the thermal properties of light with a low radiation density and his observations laid the foundation of the photon theory of light.

In his early days in Berlin, Einstein postulated that the correct interpretation of the special theory of relativity must also furnish a theory of gravitation and in 1916 he published his paper on the general theory of relativity. During this time he also contributed to the problems of the theory of radiation and statistical mechanics.

In the 1920's, Einstein embarked on the construction of unified field theories, although he continued to work on the probabilistic interpretation of quantum theory, and he persevered with this work in America. He contributed to statistical mechanics by his development of the quantum theory of a monatomic gas and he has also accomplished valuable work in connection with atomic transition probabilities and relativistic cosmology.
 





After his retirement he continued to work towards the unification of the basic concepts of physics, taking the opposite approach, geometrisation, to the majority of physicists.

Einstein's researches are, of course, well chronicled and his more important works includeSpecial Theory of Relativity (1905), Relativity (English translations, 1920 and 1950), General Theory of Relativity (1916), Investigations on Theory of Brownian Movement (1926), and The Evolution of Physics (1938). Among his non-scientific works, About Zionism (1930), Why War?(1933), My Philosophy (1934), and Out of My Later Years (1950) are perhaps the most important.

Albert Einstein received honorary doctorate degrees in science, medicine and philosophy from many European and American universities. During the 1920's he lectured in Europe, America and the Far East, and he was awarded Fellowships or Memberships of all the leading scientific academies throughout the world. He gained numerous awards in recognition of his work, including the Copley Medal of the Royal Society of London in 1925, and the Franklin Medal of the Franklin Institute in 1935.

Einstein's gifts inevitably resulted in his dwelling much in intellectual solitude and, for relaxation, music played an important part in his life. He married Mileva Maric in 1903 and they had a daughter and two sons; their marriage was dissolved in 1919 and in the same year he married his cousin, Elsa Löwenthal, who died in 1936. He died on April 18, 1955 at Princeton, New Jersey.

When we are talking about Einstein you may like to know that there 10 interesting fact of Einstein life.

10 interesting fact of Einstein life

1. Loved to Sail

When Einstein attended college at the Polytechnic Institute in Zurich, Switzerland, he fell in love with sailing. He would often take a boat out onto a lake, pull out a notebook, relax, and think. Even though Einstein never learned to swim, he kept sailing as a hobby throughout his life.

2. Einstein's Brain

When Einstein died in 1955, his body was cremated and his ashes scattered, as was his wish. However, before his body was cremated, pathologist Thomas Harvey at Princeton Hospital conducted an autopsy in which he removed Einstein's brain. Rather than putting the brain back in the body, Harvey decided to keep it, ostensibly for study. Harvey did not have permission to keep Einstein's brain, but days later, he convinced Einstein's son that it would help science. Shortly thereafter, Harvey was fired from his position at Princeton because he refused to give up Einstein's brain.

For the next four decades, Harvey kept Einstein's chopped-up brain (Harvey had it cut into over 200 pieces) in two mason jars with him as he moved around the country. Every once in a while, Harvey would slice off a piece and send it to a researcher. Finally, in 1998, Harvey returned Einstein's brain to the pathologist at Princeton Hospital.

3. Einstein and the Violin

Einstein's mother, Pauline, was an accomplished pianist and wanted her son to love music too, so she started him on violin lessons when he was six years old. Unfortunately, at first, Einstein hated playing the violin. He would much rather build houses of cards, which he was really good at (he once built one 14 stories high!), or do just about anything else. When Einstein was 13-years old, he suddenly changed his mind about the violin when he heard the music of Mozart. With a new passion for playing, Einstein continued to play the violin until the last few years of his life. For nearly seven decades, Einstein would not only use the violin to relax when he became stuck in his thinking process, he would play socially at local recitals or join in impromptu groups such as Christmas carolers who stopped at his home.

4. Presidency of Israel

A few days after Zionist leader and first President of Israel Chaim Weizmann died on November 9, 1952, Einstein was asked if he would accept the position of being the second president of Israel. Einstein, age 73, declined the offer. In his official letter of refusal, Einstein stated that he not only lacked the "natural aptitude and the experience to deal properly with people," but also, he was getting old.

5. No Socks

Part of Einstein's charm was his disheveled look. In addition to his uncombed hair, one of Einstein's peculiar habits was to never wear socks. Whether it was while out sailing or to a formal dinner at the White House, Einstein went without socks everywhere. To Einstein, socks were a pain because they often would get holes in them. Plus, why wear both socks and shoes when one of them would do just fine?

6. A Simple Compass

When Albert Einstein was five years old and sick in bed, his father showed him a simple pocket compass. Einstein was mesmerized. What force exerted itself on the little needle to make it point in a single direction? This question haunted Einstein for many years and has been noted as the beginning of his fascination with science.

7. Designed a Refrigerator

Twenty-one years after writing his Special Theory of Relativity, Albert Einstein invented a refrigerator that operated on alcohol gas. The refrigerator was patented in 1926 but never went into production because new technology made it unnecessary. Einstein invented the refrigerator because he read about a family that was poisoned by a sulphur dioxide-emitting refrigerator.

8. Obsessed Smoker

Einstein loved to smoke. As he walked between his house and his office at Princeton, one could often see him followed by a trail of smoke. Nearly as part of his image as his wild hair and baggy clothes was Einstein clutching his trusty briar pipe. In 1950, Einstein is noted as saying, "I believe that pipe smoking contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgment in all human affairs," Although he favored pipes, Einstein was not one to turn down a cigar or even a cigarette.

9. Married His Cousin

After Einstein divorced his first wife, Mileva Maric, in 1919, he married his cousin, Elsa Loewenthal (nee Einstein). How closely were they related? Quite close. Elsa was actually related to Albert on both sides of his family. Albert's mother and Elsa's mother were sisters, plus Albert's father and Elsa's father were cousins. When they were both little, Elsa and Albert had played together; however, their romance only began once Elsa had married and divorced Max Loewenthal.

10. An Illegitimate Daughter

In 1901, before Albert Einstein and Mileva Maric were married, the college sweethearts took a romantic getaway to Lake Como in Italy. After the vacation, Mileva found herself pregnant. In that day and age, illegitimate children were not uncommon and yet they were also not accepted by society. Since Einstein did not have the money to marry Maric nor the ability to support a child, the two were not able to get married until Einstein got the patent job over a year later. So as not to besmirch Einstein's reputation, Maric went back to her family and had the baby girl, whom she named Lieserl.

Although we know that Einstein knew about his daughter, we don't actually know what happened to her. There are but just a few references of her in Einstein's letters, with the last one in September 1903. It is believed that Lieserl either died after suffering from scarlet fever at an early age or she survived the scarlet fever and was given up for adoption. Both Albert and Mileva kept the existence of Lieserl so secret that Einstein scholars only discovered her existence in recent years.
