Many people look down on women because they are weak in nature nature but this ought not to be so. Women are also humans and they need not to be deprived of the right which all humans ought to have. Women as in my ways show to the world that in the aspect of inventions and discoveries they are still active, even when most were deprived of education in time past they have made efforts to also come out in some leading inventions. Here are some women that needs to be remembered for their inventions. 1. Ada Lovelace

The Power of Thoughts

The greatest discovery in human history is the power of our mind to create almost every aspect of your life. Every single thing which we see in reality today began as an idea or thought in the mind of a single person or group of persons. The thought of a man is what shapes and forms his world and everything that happens to him. You become what you think about most of the time. Your outer world is ultimately a reflection of what happens in your inner world. Whatever you think about often emerges in your reality.

History of computer.

The computer as we know it today had its beginning with a 19th century English mathematic professor name Charles Babbage. He designed the Analytical Engine and it was this design that the basic framework of computers today are based on...It was called the Atanasoff-Berry computer (ABC). To differentiate different eras of computer development, the history of computer is broken down into five generations...The first generation lasted from 1940 to 1956.

The computer was born not for entertainment or email but out of a need to solve a serious number-crunching crisis. By 1880, the U.S. population had grown so large that it took more than seven years to tabulate the U.S. Census results. The government sought a faster way to get the job done, giving rise to punch-card based computers that took up entire rooms. Today, we carry more computing power on our smartphones than was available in these early models. The following brief history of computing is a timeline
