SMALL TALK
ON THIS DATE: In 1860, the first successful silver mine in America began operations in Virginia City, Nevada. In 1877, the two moons of Mars were discovered by Asaph Hall, an American astronomer. He named them Phobos and Deimos. In 1921, Alex Haley, an African American writer best known for “The Autobiography of Malcolm X” and “Roots: The Saga of an American Family,” was born in Ithaca, New York. In 1973, hip-hop was born at a birthday party in the Bronx. Like any style of music, hip-hop has roots in other forms, and its evolution was shaped by many different artists, but a case has been made that it came to life at a birthday party in the recreation room of an apartment building in the West Bronx area of New York City. In 1984, at the Olympic Games in Los Angeles, Carl Lewis became the third track-and-field athlete to win four gold medals in one Olympics, joining fellow Americans Alvin Kraenzlein (1900) and Jesse Owens (1936). In 1994, the Major League Baseball Players Association began a labor strike following the games of August 11, and the dispute eventually led to the cancellation of the remainder of the season, including the World Series. In 2002, US Airways announced that it had filed for bankruptcy. In 2014, Robin Williams, an Oscar-winning actor and comedian, died at age 63.
