Bizarre elections in American history | E-Neighborhood Advisor

 


Elections always have an element of
controversy, with people passionately rooting
for their candidate of choice. The 2000 election
between Al Gore and George W. Bush is
perhaps the craziest, most controversial
election in U.S. history with the Supreme Court
ultimately deciding the outcome more than a
month after the election.

But, as shared by CNN.com, there have been
many truly zany moments in American
elections.

1800: Prelude to a duel
The outcome of the 1800 contest between
Thomas Jefferson and John Adams was so
bizarre, the United States had to amend the
Constitution.

Pre-12th Amendment, Electoral College
members each had two votes for president,
and there were no official tickets. Whoever
garnered the most votes was president, and
second place took the vice presidency.
The election of 1800 saw Jefferson tie with
Aaron Burr. Both had 73 votes to Adams' 65.

Congress would be called upon to break the
tie. Enter Alexander Hamilton, the nation's first
treasury secretary, founder of the Federalist
Party and a man who did not care for Adams,
Jefferson or Burr. Hamilton engaged in a
campaign to convince the Federalists to vote
for Jefferson.

The House of Representatives finally voted to
name Jefferson the victor and Burr the veep on
February 7, 1801. The rivalry between Burr
and Hamilton would continue for more than
three years before Burr, still the sitting vice
president, killed Hamilton in a duel.

1872: Death of a candidate
Horace Greeley wasn't supposed to put up
much of a fight in his bid to unseat President
Ulysses S. Grant, but a schism in Grant's
Republican Party made things a little more
interesting.

Some Republicans defected, becoming Liberal
Republicans, and cast their lot with Greeley, a
Democrat who would go on to snare 44
percent of the popular vote, almost three
million ballots, despite him stopping
campaigning to tend to his sick wife, who died
a week before the election.

Before the Electoral College could cast its
votes, the newspaper founder died November
29, 1872, and 63 of his 66 votes were
dispersed among other Democrats.
Grant attended his rival's funeral.


1920: Prison campaign
It was a battle between two newspaper
publishers, but the election wasn't terribly
exciting. Republican Warren G. Harding
handed Democrat James Cox a historic
beatdown, taking more than 60 percent of the
popular vote along with 37 of the 48 states.
Third place is where it got interesting.

The Socialist Party of America enjoyed a
modicum of support at the outset of the 20th
century. Union leader Eugene Debs ran for
president in 1900, 1904, 1908 and 1912 and
secured roughly 6 percent of the popular vote
in 1912, more than 900,000 ballots.

In 1920, though, Debs had to run his fifth
campaign from the most unlikely of
headquarters: prison.

No stranger to incarceration -- he'd served time
in connection with an 1894 railroad strike --
Debs again drew the government's ire in 1918
when he gave an anti-war speech in Canton,
Ohio, in which he pilloried "the ruling class"
who made all the decisions to send "the
working class" to war.

"Yours not to reason why. Yours but to do and
die," he said.

He was convicted under an espionage law and
sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Demonstrations protesting his imprisonment
evolved into the May Day riots of 1919, and
Debs was later moved to the Atlanta Federal
Penitentiary, from where he conducted his
presidential campaign.

He would again secure more than 900,000
votes -- an impressive tally, but not nearly
enough to compete with Harding, who snared
more than 16 million.

The following year, on Christmas, Harding
commuted Debs' sentence to time served.

Presidents and technology | E-Neighborhood Advisor

 


Who was the first president to be on TV? To
use the radio? To fly on an airplane? Juni.com
is celebrating President’s Day with some
presidential history related to its favorite
subject: technology!

On April 30th, 1789, George Washington
became the first president of the United States.
Since that historic day nearly 231 years ago,
our country’s commanders-in-chief have
witnessed an astounding amount of
advancement and change, particularly in
technology. In fact, many American presidents
were some of the first to see the new
technologies of their day in action.

In honor of Election Day, here are some of the
presidents’ technological firsts.


Who was the First President to…

Be on TV?
Though Franklin D. Roosevelt made the first
presidential appearance on black and white TV
in 1939, for the World’s Fair, Harry S. Truman
was the first to give a presidential speech on
TV in 1947, during which he encouraged
Americans to aid European famine.

Truman was also the first president to have his
inauguration broadcasted on television in 1949.
Later, John F. Kennedy would be named the
"first television president" for pioneering live TV
coverage of political events, such as his
presidential debate against Republican
presidential candidate Richard Nixon.

Use the Radio?
Warren G. Harding was the first president to
install radio in the White House and broadcast
his voice nationally, in 1922. However, the
following president, Calvin Coolidge, was the
first to do regular addresses over radio.

Fly in an Airplane?
In January 1943, Franklin D. Roosevelt
became the first president to fly in an airplane
on official business. The plane, a Boeing 314
Flying Boat, also known as the "Dixie Clipper,"
helped a 60-year-old Roosevelt secretly and
hurriedly fly to the Casablanca Conference in
Morocco, where he discussed WWII strategy
with Winston Churchill.

Ride in a Car?
President William McKinley became the first
serving president to ride in a car in 1901, when
he took a short car ride in a car that was called
the “Stanley Steamer”. Theodore Roosevelt
became the first president to publicly ride a
government automobile in 1902.

Have his Voice Recorded?
During his first year in presidency in 1889,
Benjamin Harrison used a phonograph wax
cylinder to record his speech regarding the first
Pan-American Congress. The speech is now
the oldest surviving recording of a president’s
voice. While Rutherford B. Hayes did record a
speech several years prior, it was sadly lost.

Use a Telegraph?
The 1844, invention of the telegraph baffled
both the American people and government up
until Abraham Lincoln’s presidency in the
1860s. During his term, Lincoln used the
telegraph frequently to communicate with
generals during the Civil War.

In 1866, Lincoln’s successor, Andrew Johnson
installed the first telegraph room in the White
House so that he could efficiently relay urgent
messages.

Have a Phone?
In May 1877, Rutherford B. Hayes was the first
president to install a telephone in the White
House’s telegraph room. For his first call, he
called the inventor of the phone, Alexander
Graham Bell, who was located 13 miles away.
President Herbert Hoover installed the first
telephone in the Oval Office in 1929, to enable
the power of communications right at the
president’s desk.

Things you didn’t know about the 19th amendment | E-Neighborhood Advisor

 


On August 26, 2020, we celebrated the 100th
anniversary of women getting the right vote
when the 19th amendment to the U.S.
Constitution took effect. At a time of year when
we’re all going to polls, it’s important to
remember that is wasn’t all that long ago that
not everyone enjoyed the privilege. Check out
these facts from Trivia Today.

Single Women in New Jersey Could Vote in
1797 New Jersey single women were
temporarily able to vote because of their state
constitution, which was vague and said those
worth 50 pounds were eligible to vote. For 10
years, unmarried women voted in New Jersey,
but married women couldn’t because their
husbands were in control of all of the property
in the family, so those women were technically
worth zero. The New Jersey Assembly
changed the law in 1807 by restricting voting to
free white males who were 21 or over, citizens
of the state and who paid taxes.

A Proposed 19th Amendment Was Defeated
in 1878 An amendment proposed by Arlen
Sargent, a California Senator, was debated on
January 10, 1878, with the support of Susan B.
Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Although
hearings were held, several of the committee
members ignored the proceedings by staring
into space or reading as the debate continued.
The bill was reintroduced each year for 41
years before it finally passed.



The States Had Different Voting Rights
Before 1920 In January 1919, there were 15
states that allowed women to vote. Twenty-one
states barred women from voting such as
Texas, which only allowed females to vote in
primaries. The other 21 states did not allow
women to vote at all.

Millions of Women Received Voting Rights
Shortly after the 19th Amendment was ratified,
10 million women became eligible to vote. A
legal scholar at that time, Akhil Reed Amar,
said the volume of new voters made it the
largest democratizing event in the history of the
United States. These new voters took their
place alongside millions from 15 other states
and the Alaskan Territory where voting by
females was allowed.

A Missouri Woman Is Credited as Being the
First to Vote Under the Amendment
Although many women have been said to have
voted first after the passage of the 19th
Amendment, Mrs. Marie Ruoff Bynum, a
Hannibal, Missouri, resident, is often credited
with that honor. Although Mrs. Bynum and her
husband lived about 15 blocks from the polling
place, they walked there in drizzling rain and
she registered and voted. The polling book with
Mrs. Bynum’s signature is in Jefferson City,
housed in the state archives.

Squirrel stew, jelly beans, and hoecakes: Here are some of the favorite foods of the presidents | E-Neighborhood Advisor


This November when we’re thinking about all
things presidential, Business Insider has
shared the favorite foods of all of the
presidents.

Presidents have hundreds of staff members to
cater to their every whim during their time in
the White House. Though the Executive
Mansion hosts some of the country's most
exclusive and upscale dinners, each president
has different tastes for their everyday fuel. 

From squirrel stew to cheeseburger pizza, here
are some of the most unusual favorites. You
can read the whole list here:
https://www.businessinsider.com/presidents-favorite-food-dishes-white-house-2019-5#donald-trump-fast-food-44

Thomas Jefferson: Mac and cheese
Jefferson discovered macaroni during his
European travels and is credited with
popularizing the food in the U.S. after he
brought a machine for making the pasta back
from Naples, Italy.

Andrew Jackson: Leather britches
Jackson's favorite dish has nothing to do with
sturdy pants but is a term for green beans
cooked with bacon. 

Martin van Buren: Oysters
The half-shell snack was just one of van
Buren's favorite foods, in addition to
doughnuts, raisins, figs, and meat. 

William Henry Harrison: Squirrel stew
Harrison's proclivity for nature might have
contributed to his taste for squirrel, which was
a common protein at the time in a variety of
dishes.


Andrew Johnson: Hoppin' John
Southerner Johnson's comfort-food favorite is
made with black-eyed peas, rice, chopped
onion, sliced bacon, and salt. 

James Garfield: Squirrel soup
Garfield was the second president to count
squirrel as one of his favorite meals, which is
nearly unheard of today. 

Grover Cleveland: Pickled herring
Cleveland was a bachelor when he entered
the White House in 1884 and told a friend he
wished he could pass up the luxurious meals
for "pickled herring, a Swiss cheese, and a
chop instead of the French stuff."

Franklin Delano Roosevelt: Grilled cheese
According to Henrietta Nesbitt, Roosevelt's
White House housekeeper, FDR loved grilled
cheese sandwiches in addition to other classic
American foods, including scrambled eggs,
fish chowder, hot dogs, and fruitcake.

Richard Nixon: Cottage cheese and
ketchup
Nixon's unusual favorite of cottage cheese
and ketchup would raise eyebrows any time of
day, but the president especially liked it for
breakfast. 

Ronald Reagan: Jelly beans
Reagan was obsessed with the colorful snack,
and at one point reportedly ordered more than
300,000 to be placed around the Capitol,
White House, and other federal buildings each
month. 

George H.W. Bush: Pork rinds
The president reportedly caused sales of the
snack to skyrocket while he was on the
campaign trail and identified them as his
favorite, particularly when they were topped
with Tabasco. 

George W. Bush: Cheeseburger pizza
Former White House Chef Cristeta Comerford
told reporters after the president left office that
Bush loved what staff called "home-made
'cheeseburger pizzas' because every
ingredient of a cheeseburger is on top of a
margherita pizza."

Barack Obama: Nachos
The former president told comedian Jerry
Seinfeld that nachos were one of his greatest
vices.

Donald Trump: Fast food
Trump has a well-documented affection for
fast food. From serving it in the White House
to getting it delivered to his private plane, the
president has said Burger King and
McDonald's are among his favorites because
they promise a standard of cleanliness that's
hard to verify at other restaurants.

Things Your Kitchen Doesn’t Really Need | E-Neighborhood Advisor

 


We all have the “junk” drawer stuffed to
overflowing and the kitchen cabinet so full of
old margarine tubs that we’re likely to be
caught in an avalanche of when we open the
door. There are the mugs accumulated
throughout our travels and the plastic spoons
that were tucked in with our takeout food that
we just might need someday. It all adds up to
clutter, and it’s time to get rid of it.

Domino magazine says the key is deciphering 
the good clutter from the bad. No matter your
skill level, every home chef should own a 9-by-
13 baking pan, a sturdy set of knives, three
cook-anything pots, shears (they’re great for
slicing pita and mincing herbs), and one dish
set per seat at the dining table. But the rest is
up for debate. If you really want to whip your
kitchen into shape, you’re going to have to let
go of a few things.


To Donate

A good general rule of thumb for giving away
kitchen goods is that they should be gently
used, not totally worn not. Here are a few
things to send along to a new home: 

 Duplicate measuring tools. All you need
is one for liquids and a set of stainless
steel spoons to keep your baking
prowess on point. 
 Specialty peelers you only use once a
year. (Can you even recall the last time
you spiralized a zucchini?)
 Waffle makers, margarita machines,
pasta makers, and any other niche
appliances you’ve lost the directions to. 
 Miniature baking pans. Cake pops are
cute, but are you really going to make
two dozen for that holiday party?
 Souvenir cups from your alma mater or
Disney World. (We all know they aren’t
going to appear on the table at your next
meal.) 
 Travel mugs that don’t fit in your car’s
holder. 
 Barely used cookbooks that are
gathering dust. 
 Paper party supplies (unless you truly
are the host with the most).

To Toss

Anything that’s past its prime can hit the trash
(or recycling!) bin. Approach these items with a
clear mind-set—no “But what if I’ll need this
one day” or “I’ve been meaning to use that”
excuses. 

 Metal tongs that always get way too hot
when they’re left by the stovetop
(rubber-tipped ones will keep cool—and
won’t scratch your favorite pots).
 Subpar coffee cups that are chipped or
stained.
 Warped deli tubs that have outstayed
their welcome. (Recycle these.)
 Spices that have gone bad (yes, they
have expiration dates!).
 Single-use condiment packets you’ve
been stockpiling for the apocalypse.
 Takeout menus from those places that
have since closed.
 Distressed dish towels marred by red
wine spills.
 The ominous cloud of plastic bags under
the sink—keeping a few may make
sense if you use them for other things,
but bring the rest to the proper recycling
station and invest in a few reusable
totes instead.
 Permanently greasy pans from your first
post-college apartment. (Definitely scrap
them if the nonstick coating is peeling.) 
 Charred or holey oven mitts that
(almost) burn your fingers every time. 
 Dull or rusted knives. (If it’s taking you
two minutes to slice through a tomato,
it’s time to invest in a new set.)

How to fix your video chat | E-Neighborhood Advisor


With more and more of us relying on video chat
for work and for staying in touch with family
and friends, we need it to work seamlessly.
PC.com has some troubleshooting tips for
fixing video and sound issues during video
chats.

Ensure Audio Isn't Muted and Video Is On

Let’s start with a seemingly obvious but
common issue. Some meetings may
automatically mute your audio or video when
you enter, or you may have accidentally clicked
the wrong thing. Look for the camera and/or
microphone icon in the chat program and click
them to see if you’ve muted one or the other. It
seems basic, but it’s an easy thing to miss. If
you’ve covered your webcam for privacy
reasons, make sure you uncover it for your
video chat.

Install Your Webcam's Drivers and Software

Sometimes, your video chat program will see
multiple devices and select the wrong one for
audio or video. If your webcam does not
appear in the list, it’s possible Windows isn’t
recognizing the device. Click the Start menu,
type Device Manager, and press Enter to see
a list of hardware connected to your PC. 

If you don’t see any options under Cameras,
Imaging Devices, or Universal Serial Bus
Controllers that correspond to your
webcam—or you see something with a yellow
exclamation point—you may need to install or
update the drivers for your webcam hardware.


Check Your Privacy Settings

Windows and macOS both have privacy
settings that allow you to block access to your
webcam, and it’s possible this is interfering
with your video chat. 

In Windows, head to Settings > Privacy >
Camera and make sure camera access is
turned on for the apps you want. (You’ll need
to scroll all the way to the bottom to see what
desktop apps are allowed.)

In macOS, head to System Preferences >
Security & Privacy and click the lock in the
bottom-left corner to make changes. After
entering your password, look through the list
on the left, making sure your video chat
program is allowed to access the camera and
microphone. You can also allow screen
recording, access to files, and other
permissions here.

By default, both Camera and Microphone
should be set to Ask Before Accessing, but if
it isn’t, you can change that here. If the camera
is blocked on a specific site (like Zoom’s
domain), you can fix that by visiting that site
and clicking the lock icon in the address bar to
allow camera and microphone access.

Most Popular Halloween Costumes | E-Neighborhood Advisor



Have you decided on your Halloween costume
yet? With the holiday a few short weeks away,
now is the time to choose. Will you be spooky
or silly? Naughty or nice? Stylecaster.com say
these are the most popular costumes to rock
this October.

Anyone from Tiger King

One of the most unforgettable things to come
out of this past year (and there are plenty to
choose from) is Netflix’s Tiger King. There’s no
way to ignore this show’s impact on pop
culture, and there’s no doubt you’ll be seeing
plenty of Joe Exotic and Carol Baskin
costumes floating around this Halloween.

Anyone from Hamilton

We are not throwing away our shot to dress
like one of the characters from Hamilton. Since
it was released on Disney+, there’s definitely
been an uptick in fans of the musical since its
original Broadway run. You can always go as
Alexander Hamilton himself or choose one of
the iconic Schuyler sisters.


The Masked Singer

It’s one of the most absurd (and enjoyable)
shows on television, and there’s no doubt in
our minds that The Masked Singer will reign
this Halloween. While it’s not likely you can
create a costume quite as elaborate as the
ones on the show, you can always put your
favorite face mask to good use and add a
microphone for a fun play on the show.

Cliché Influencer

Put on your trendiest outfit (puffy-sleeve crop
top or a maximalist street style ensemble,
anyone?), then go around filming yourself
doing, well, everything. You can say things like,
“A lot of people have been asking about my
beauty routine” or “So many people have been
messaging me about this outfit” to really seal
the deal.

Quarantine Couch Potato

Throw on a tie-dye sweatsuit and fuzzy
slippers (plus your mask!) and carry around a
thing of hand sanitizer this Halloween. The
quarantine couch potato couldn’t be an
easier—or more timely—costume to create this
year. Just make sure to take plenty of photos
so that you can look back in 10 years on how
strange this time was.

Things you didn’t know about Henry Ford | E-Neighborhood Advisor

 


On October 1, 1908, Henry Ford's Model T, a
"universal car" designed for the masses, went
on sale for the first time. American automaker
Henry Ford was born in Dearborn Township,
Michigan, and grew up to found the Ford Motor
Company. Here are five things from
TriviaToday
you probably didn't know about him.

Ford Worked for Inventor Thomas Edison

Ford was only 20 when he became the chief
engineer for the Thomas Edison Illumination
Company at Detroit’s main electric plant. This
was quite a feat for such a young man,
especially since this power plant provided all of
the electricity for such a big city. Six years
later, Edison encouraged Ford to follow his
dreams of creating an affordable, reliable,
gasoline-powered automobile.

He Ran for Public Office in 1918

Ford had many powerful friends, including
President Woodrow Wilson, who convinced
him to run for the United States Senate in
1918. He only lost by 4,500 votes, even though
he didn't spend a dime on his campaign.
Truman H. Newberry won in part by accusing
Ford of being antisemitic and a pacifist as well
as for his efforts to keep his son Edsel from
going into the military during World War I.

The Henry Ford Museum Displays Some
Strange Objects

The museum, located in Dearborn, Michigan,
contains a strange collection of objects in
addition to the expected display of motor
vehicles. One of the museum’s prized
possessions is a glass test-tube that has
Thomas Edison’s last breath inside and a 
talking doll by Edison from around 1899 that
would give author Stephen King nightmares
with its garbled version of a child’s nursery
rhyme. The museum also houses a plaster
cast mask of Abraham Lincoln, which was
made only several months before his
assassination and a toy coffin with a doll in it.

One of Ford’s Invention Is Used by
Barbecuers All Around the Nation

Among Ford's many inventions over the years
is a summertime staple: the compressed
charcoal briquette. With Ford plants turning out
the Model T, which featured many parts made
of oak, Ford found himself awash in wood
scraps. Ford's brother-in-law E.G. Kingsford
suggested they create a charcoal
manufacturing plant. The charcoal briquettes
were named Kingsford Charcoal, in honor of
his brother-in-law, and the company is still a
top producer of briquettes to this day.

One of Ford’s Airplanes Appeared in a
Harrison Ford Movie

During World War I, Ford took to the skies
when he founded the Ford Airplane Company.
While the company didn't achieve the success
Ford had hoped, it did create the sturdy and
now-iconic Ford Tri-Motor airplane, which was
produced between 1928 and 1933. A Ford Tri-
Motor even appears in "Indiana Jones and the
Temple of Doom."
