Samuel Finley Breese Morse (1791-1872) would probably be remembered as a painter, had he not invented the famous dot-and-dash code named after him. Born in Charlestown Massachusetts, he came to London as a young man and exhibited at the Royal Academy and returning to America  he established himself as a quite successful portrait painter. 

In 1826 he founded and became the first president of the National Academy of Design but after a few years, his interest in the electric telegraph led him away from painting and in 1838, the first message by "Morse" telegraph was successfully transmitted.  Morse was involved in a great deal of litigation but was eventually successful in obtaining the rights to his invention.

Public Speaking

Public Speaking - Quick Tips

  1. Keep it short and sweet.
  2. Slow down: Don’t talk too fast.
  3. Look up! – It it’s too scary to look at the audience in the front row, look at the people in the back of the room.
  4. Smile : Look confident, even if you don’t feel confident.
  5. Pretend: Find a friendly face in the audience and pretend you’re only talking to that person.
  6. Practice: Join a debating team, dare yourself. To speak up in class, give a speech in front of a mirror. The more opportunities you have speak in public the easier it gets.
  7. Biggest asset: Self-confidence. Actas though you have a right to be there-because you do.
