Nick Holonyak Jr., pioneer of LED lighting, dies at 93

[Image: 206745.jpg][Image: Blinking-LED-Light-GIF.gif]

Quote:One of the earliest researchers in semiconductor materials and a pioneer in the field of optoelectronics – devices that convert electricity into light or vice versa – Holonyak also contributed to technologies in household dimmer switches, lasers that run CD and DVD players, fiber-optic communication lines, and other electronics and communications devices. Two presidents recognized Holonyak with national medals – George W. Bush with the National Medal of Technology and Innovation in 2002, and George H. W. Bush with the National Medal of Science in 1990 for “his contributions as one of the Nation’s most prolific inventors in the area of semiconductor materials and devices.”

If you're not a fan of the way local news is today, blame this guy, Al Primo, the man credited with creating Eyewitness News format: dies at 87

Quote:...Primo had developed the Eyewitness News concept earlier, and was recruited from KYW-TV in Philadelphia, where he had great success with his new approach to storytelling, and brought on talent like Tom Snyder.

While many people helped grow and spread the concept of Eyewitness News, Primo was the one who came up with the idea. Primo dispatched reporters into the field and then back into the studio to share their stories with the anchors, serving as eyewitnesses. Those reporters reflected the diversity of the community.

Primo believed the people presenting the news should look and sound like the audiences they served.

"I was determined to make the reporters the most important element of the program - they were the eyewitnesses," said Primo.

He hired many of Channel 7's legendary anchors and reporters from Geraldo Rivera to Rose Ann Scamardella....The Daily News once described him as 'the man who almost single-handedly changed the face of broadcast journalism.'...

It would seem Marvin Zindler owed his career to this guy.

Judge Laurence Silberman, Iconic Jurist, Dead at 86

Quote:Judge Silberman’s contributions to our nation transcend his stellar service as a judge. Characteristically, [his decisions are] rooted in the Constitution and a deeply principled grasp of the judicial role, which is more than can be said about the high court’s 1964 decision, so beloved by the media and by progressives who look to the judiciary to drive their policy preferences through the Constitution’s strictures....
