Thought for Today:

I am sure that no man can derive more pleasure from money or power than I do from seeing a pair of basketball goals in some out of the way place.--James Naismith
我从出其不意进球中得到的快乐远比人们从金钱或权利中得到的快乐多得多。--詹姆斯·奈史密斯

Today's Highlight in History:

1885: Wilson Bentley took the first photograph of a snowflake on January 15th. Bentley first became interested in snow crystals as a teenager on his family farm. He tried to draw what he saw through an old microscope given to him by his mother when he was fifteen. The snowflakes were too complex to record before they melted so he attached a bellows camera to a compound microscope. He would capture over 5000 images of crystals in his lifetime. Each crystal was caught on a blackboard and transferred rapidly to a microscope slide. 
1885年1月15日,威尔逊·班提首次成功拍到清晰的雪花。班提十几岁在农场的时候开始对雪花有兴趣。他的妈妈在15岁的时候送给他一台旧显微镜,他喜欢把用它观察到的东西画下来。但是雪花太容易融化了,他只能将折叠暗箱照相机和复合显微镜结合起来,最终获得成功。他一生拍摄了大约5000幅雪花照片。每一片雪花都首先用一块黑板接住,然后迅速送到显微镜下。

1892:American athletic director James Naismith published the rules for basketball on January 15th. At the YMCA Training School in Mass. (1890–95), he was asked to devise a new indoor winter sport. His version of basketball called for nine players (later reduced to five) per team and the use of peach baskets (later netted hoops) as goals.Twelve of the thirteen rules Naismith created are still basic to the game.
1892年1月15日,美国体育指导主任詹姆斯·奈史密斯发明篮球运动。1890年至1895年期间,他在马萨诸塞州基督教青年会职业培训学校任教,被要求设计一项新的室内运动。他设计的篮球比赛每队有九名球员(后来减为5个),使用桃子筐(后改为网圈)。直到今天,奈史密斯发明的13项规则中的12项仍然是篮球比赛的基础。
