"President Roosevelt at His Desk in the White House, Washington." c.1902. On December 10, 1906, President Theodore Roosevelt was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his successful efforts to negotiate an end to the Russo-Japanese War. During the previous year, Roosevelt had arranged a meeting in Portsmouth, New Hampshire to mediate a treaty, and the two sides resolved the conflict over the division of Sakhalin.

In #1983 #RickJames ’ & #SmokeyRobinson ’s duet “#EbonyEyes " charted, reaching #43 Pop and #22 R&B. The original release listed the artists as Rick James “and friend”. It was first featured on James' album #ColdBlooded . The song was produced and arranged by Rick James. Ebony Eyes remains one of James' most notable hits as it is one of the few to not use the style he labeled "#PunkFunk " but instead uses a more contemporary tempo and follows a more classic style of R&B. Robinson was credited for singing the introduction, bridge, and other more calm verses while James sang the chorus. #TWIMH #music #history #musichistory #onthisday #thisdayinhistory #80s
#OnThisDay : Ada Lovelace (1815 - 1852) was born on December 10, 1815 in Piccadilly, Middlesex (now in London), England. She was the daughter of the poet Lord Byron and his wife Anne. Ada was taught science and mathematics by several notable tutors in an attempt, by her mother, to forestall the development of insanity inherited from Ada's father. Ada became an accomplished mathematician and logician. She is best known today for her work with computer pioneer Charles Babbage. Her notes on Babbage's Difference Engine amount to a description of the first-ever computer algorithm. The computer language Ada was named in her honor. #history #birthday #mathematician #england #inventor #programming #programmer #language #computer

The great Archie Moore defended his world light-heavyweight title in a eight-knockdown thriller #OnThisDay in 1958 when he finally finished of Canadian toughguy Yvon Durelle in Montreal. Moore was knocked down four times, three times in the first round; while Durelle was floored four times himself before being counted out by Referee Jack Sharkey.

The last shift on the Durham Coalfield was worked 25 years ago today. Miners are pictured leaving Wearmouth Colliery for the final time, on 10 December 1993. Wearmouth was the last remaining colliery on the coalfield. It is now the site of Sunderland AFC’s Stadium of Light. Alan Cummings, Secretary of the Durham Miners’ Association, said: “Today marks a quarter of a century since the end of coal mining in Durham’s collieries – but we don’t mourn, we organise. “As well as ensuring that our wonderful @durhamminersgala thrives as a celebration of the values and spirit of our people, we have recently launched The Redhills Appeal to ensure that the historic home of the Durham miners is renewed as a centre for our communities.” To support The Redhills Appeal, add your name to the campaign, or make a donation.
