This science fiction film is set in the middle of the 22nd century, a time when Earth is becoming so polluted that is it nearly uninhabitable. On a distant planet named Pandora, a group of humans has set up a technologically advanced camp where scientists, businessmen and marines are working together for what seems to be the same cause: the attainment of a precious mineral called unobtainium. However, as the movie progresses, the different morals and motivations of each group become clear. This conflict of opinions divides the group and ultimately changes the outcome of the war between the human colonizers and the local inhabitants of Pandora.

Every dream needs to start somewhere. For the Beatles, it started in 1957 when then sixteen year old John Lennon (b: October 9, 1940; shot to death: December 8 1980) formed a skiffle group with friends from his Quarry Bank School in Liverpool. (“Skiffle” is a combination of jazz, blues, and folk.) It wasn’t a very successful start, as the group hadn’t even settled on a name for their band, but they all had the passion and drive to start working towards a common goal. The group called themselves the Quarrymen, and a fifteen year old Paul McCartney (b: June 18, 1942) was invited to join the group after he met John Lennon at a church picnic. McCartney started as a rhythm guitarist and in 1958 he invited his friend George Harrison to watch the band. Harrison took quick interest in the band and he auditioned for Lennon soon after, but Lennon was concerned with Harrison’s age, as the boy was only fourteen at the time (b: February 25, 1943; d: November 29, 2001). After a month of persistence on Harrison’s part, the Quarrymen made Harrison their lead guitarist.

When Ty Cobb first started playing major league baseball, he was quickly named “The Georgia Peach.” In his demeanor both on and off the field, he was anything but. “...A Snarling Wildcat” was what he said his teammates on the Detroit Tigers had called him. Cobb later said it was a result of their hazing treatment of him as rookie. Regardless of the actual story, no one can deny that Ty Cobb was one of the great ones. Considered perhaps the master of the dead ball era of baseball, Cobb's grit and determination and the war he would wage whenever he played baseball, made him an object of admiration and also controversy throughout his career and all his life.

Albert Einstein is one of the most known scientists in the world. The theory of relativity changed the way people studied physics and quantum mechanics. His name will always be included in the books of history because his accomplishments had a great impact in the progress of science. He won the Nobel Prize in physics in 1921, and of course he is also known for coming up with the famous formula e=mc^2. He was born on March 14, 1879 in Germany.
