Pink Floyd Timeline

Dr Seuss timeline

This Saturday marked two important events in the history of psychedelic rock band Pink Floyd. First of all, 51 years ago on March 10, the band launched their debut single, Arnold Layne, which peaked at number 20 in the UK despite having been banned by multiple radio stations. Moreover, according to Pink Floyd’s official website, March 10 (1973) is also the day the iconic album The Dark Side of the Moon was released, gaining the band their first No.1 chart placing and remaining on the chart for 741 consecutive weeks.

To wish Pink Floyd a happy anniversary for both occasions, let’s take a look back at their internationally-acclaimed work.

The Pink Floyd Timeline provides a chronological overview of the band’s major album releases, including studio and live albums as well as a few compilations. Although there seems to be some dispute regarding the exact release date of The Dark Side of the Moon, what is certain is that it was recorded at Abbey Road Studios, where the Beatles made most of their recordings. In fact, at the end of Eclipse, the final song on Pink Floyd’s best-selling album, a faintly audible orchestral section of the Beatles’ Ticket to Ride can be heard. It is believed that this was unintentional and that the Beatles song was playing in the background when Eclipse’s closing snippet was recorded.

The Pink Floyd chronology was created with Office Timeline, a simple-to-use PowerPoint plugin that enables users to quickly generate historical timelines, visual plans and schedules, Gantt charts, or other similar graphics. The image is free to copy and share and can be updated or restyled easily using the Plus version of the tool.

Dr. Seuss Timeline

Dr Seuss timeline

Today marks the 114th birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as the beloved Dr. Seuss. Even decades after the publication of his first book, the whimsical writer and illustrator is still capturing the imagination of children – and adults – worldwide with his wacky themes, playful rhymes, and made-up words and creatures. To celebrate the man behind besties like the Grinch, the Sneetches, and the Lorax, let’s take a brief look at his life and work.

The Dr. Seuss Timeline illustrates some of the major events and achievements in the life of the author, as well as a few of his most popular books, such as The Cat in the Hat or Green Eggs and Ham. While many have heard the interesting stories behind his major works, how the penname “Dr. Seuss” was born might not be that common-knowledge.

It all started at Dartmouth, where Theodor (Ted) Geisel wrote for the university’s humor magazine and even rose to the rank of chief editor. That changed abruptly, though, when he was caught drinking gin in his dorm with a few friends. As punishment for violating Prohibition, Seuss was barred from writing for the magazine and stripped of his editorship too. To continue publishing, he hid behind a variety of pseudonyms, such as T. Seuss, D.G. Rosetti, or simply Seuss. Several other monikers appeared over the years, including the pompous “Dr. Theophrastus Seuss,” which the writer later shortened to the penname we know today.

This Sunday, acclaimed actor-singer-dancer-pilot John Travolta turns 64.

Youtube History Timeline

Today, everyone’s go-to video-sharing site – and the source of endless procrastination for many of us - is celebrating its 13th birthday. Set up in 2005 by three former PayPal employees and originally intended as a dating service, YouTube has grown to be the second most visited website in the world after Google, now boasting over 15 billion visitors per month. To wish the giant video website a happy birthday, we have put together a timeline of memorable moments throughout its history.

The YouTube Timeline illustrates the site’s evolution since its inception to present day. The graphic runs through the company’s major achievements and feature releases, including a few interesting milestones such as the first video uploaded or the first known instance of Rickrolling.

Considering the type of broadcasts that are regularly going viral on YouTube, one might think the first video ever posted on the website must have been something insane. Well, it’s actually a very short clip of co-founder Jawed Karim standing near some elephants at the zoo and describing their “really, really long trunks.” The video is appropriately titled “Me at the Zoo” and has since been viewed more than 45 million times.

The Youtube chronology was created with Office Timeline, a flexible PowerPoint add-in that enables users to quickly generate timelines, Gantt charts and other similar visuals for business or academic presentations. To update the graphic or build new ones effortlessly, we recommend Office Timeline Plus Edition.

Jules Verne Timeline

Jules Verne Timeline

February 8, 2018, marks 190 years since the birth of Breton science fiction pioneer Jules Verne. Widely regarded as a visionary writer, Verne contributed over 50 romans scientifiques that were unlike anything written before – or since – and which have inspired generations of inventors, scientists and explorers. To commemorate the author’s 190th birthday, let’s take a journey to the past and explore his life and work.

The Jules Verne Timeline lays out some of the events and milestones in the life of the French writer, including a few of his most renowned novels. While Verne is acclaimed in most of Europe as one of the 19th century’s major authors, he does not enjoy (or hasn’t until recently) the same reputation in English-speaking countries, where he was often seen as a mere writer of children’s books. This happened largely because the early English translations of Verne’s work were flawed, to say the least, often bearing little resemblance to the original writing.

The translators repeatedly watered down the author’s texts, cut out descriptive passages (even 40% of the original), committed ludicrous mistakes, or rewrote sections that conflicted with their political, social or religious views. These poorly-written English versions of Verne’s work were widely reprinted (and can be still found in print today), making the novels seem like nothing more but trivial adventure stories with no literary value. It was only in the 1960’s that American scholar Walter Miller compared the standard English translations to their original counterparts and recognized the damage that was done.

The Jules Verne chronology was built with Office Timeline, an easy-to-use PowerPoint add-in that builds beautiful timelines and Gantt charts for academic or business presentations. To edit the image fast or create similar ones effortlessly, we recommend using the Plus version of the add-in.
