  • This building on Tite Street, Chelsea belonged to the artist Frank Miles, who was born #otd in 1852. He specialised in pastel portraits of society ladies. The relief on the gable appears to depict him at work, painting a female sitter on a scroll-like canvas. Miles commissioned the architect Edward William Godwin to build the house. Godwin's original design failed to meet the approval of the Metropolitan Board of Works, and was subsequently tamed by the inclusion of more conventional "Queen Anne" and Dutch features when it was built between 1878 and 1880. Miles is best known today as a friend of Oscar Wilde whom he met at Oxford in the mid-1870s. They lived together for a time in London, including at this Tite Street address (Wilde is described as a "boarder" here in the 1881 census), before Wilde moved into a house further down the street. Among Miles' sitters was the socialite and actress Lillie Langtry. In an interview given in 1882 she described his influence on her early career in London: "It was through Lord Ranelagh and the painter Frank Miles that I was first introduced to London Society... Among the most enthusiastic...was Mr Frank Miles, the artist. I learned afterwards that he saw me one evening at the theatre, and tried in vain to discover who I was. He went to his clubs and among his artist friends declaring he had seen a beauty, and he described me to everybody he knew, until one day one of his friends met me and he was duly introduced. Then Mr Miles came and begged me to sit for my portrait. I consented, and when the portrait was finished he sold it to Prince Leopold. From that time I was invited everywhere and made a great deal of by many members of the royal family and nobility. After Frank Miles I sat for portraits to Millais and Burne-Jones and now Frith is putting my face in one of his great pictures". #frankmiles #titestreet #chelsea #lillielangtry #onthisday #onthisdayinhistory This building on Tite Street, Chelsea belonged to the artist Frank Miles, who was born #otd in 1852.

  • When the #HillsboroLighthouse station began there was no indoor plumbing. Water was collected off each cottage roof and stored in their own cistern. The privy was on the back of their storehouses. #Onthisday in 1927 water was to the sinks and new flush toilets was installed. The main reason water was brought to the peninsula was from the lobbying efforts of Herbert Malcolm, the owner/founder of the #HillsboroClub next door. Malcolm and the lighthouse families were great friends and helped each other in any way they could. At this time we have no interior photos of the cottages or storehouses from this era, so what is pictured is the 1950 #USCG renovations.

  • #onthisday nel 1974 nasceva @shavoodadjian bassista dei @systemofadown
Durante la sua gioventù, @shavoodadjian passava parecchio tempo sul suo skateboard, ascoltava musica #punk e #heavymetal . Tra le sue band preferite troviamo @kissonline , #deadkennedys , @blacksabbath e #thepinkangel . Si trasferì a Los Angeles, in California, quando era ancora molto giovane. Lì crebbe con sua nonna; alla sua morte, Shavo dichiara di aver perso la fede e di aver smesso di pregare ogni sera come faceva precedentemente.
Ha frequentato la Rose and Alex Pilibos Armenian School, una scuola parrocchiale armena situata a Los Angeles. Assieme a lui, la frequentavano due futuri membri dei @systemofadown , @daronmalakian e @serjtankian , ma non si trovarono nella stessa classe data la differenza di età.
Mentre lavorava come impiegato in banca, iniziò a fare da manager e da chitarrista ritmico al gruppo Soil, fondato nel 1993 con @daronmalakian e @serjtankian , il quale lo incontrò in uno studio di registrazione dove stava registrando con il suo gruppo. In seguito allo scioglimento dei Soil nel 1995, @serjtankian , @daronmalakian e @shavoodadjian fondarono i @systemofadown , di cui diverrà il bassista. Alla batteria venne reclutato Ontronik "Andy" Khachaturian, il quale abbandonò il gruppo nel 1997 in seguito a un infortunio alla mano e fu sostituito da @johndolmayan_ . #onthisday nel 1974 nasceva @shavoodadjian bassista dei @systemofadown Durante la sua gioventù, @shavoodadjian passava parecchio tempo sul suo skateboard, ascoltava musica #punk e #heavymetal .

  • 46-year-old George Foreman retained his IBF heavyweight title with a controversial majority decision over Germany's 26-year-old Axel Schulz #OnThisDay in 1995 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
"I scored enough points," said Schulz. "But I also had to fight against the referee and the judges."
"It was a good fight, but facts are facts: I'm a grandpappy," Foreman said. "I'm almost 50 years old, and I was shocked beyond all reason that someone would score that thing even when that boy was running from a grandpappy."
"That guy gave me a good fight," he continued. "Tonight, I looked like a junkyard dog, and he looked like Elvis Presley. He was taking everything. I hit him with some hard shots. A couple times I was waiting for him to fall, and as I was waiting, he hit me back."
Asked, finally, if his eye throbbed, Foreman said: "Didn't feel it until the fight was over. I was like, 'Man, what's this big thing on my eye?' I looked in the mirror and I was shocked. Lately, every time I finish one of these fights, I've got to run for eyeglasses. I don't know why."
