12 publishers rejecting Harry Potter
He ‘fascinated’ and influenced, so to speak, the mass of children and young people of an era, and he achieved this success. 8 cinemas a world-famous book series that has also been brought to the big screen with a series Harry Potter, Bloomsbury before being accepted by the publishing house. 12
Did you know that was rejected by the publishing house?
It seems that 12 publishers who read and rejected the first draft of Harry Potter, which had a great success as it was released on July 26, 1997, must have never thought that the series would have such a big impact and break sales records. However, he never lost his faith in his work. J. K. Rowling
This effort of ; 400 million dollars
More than copies sold, 67 with translation in different languages 7, along with books and 8 blockbuster movies, made him the world’s first millionaire author. This success, we argue, has ruined 12 publishing houses that spurned the chance of signing a memorandum with Rowling.
Decca Records’ refusal to deal with The Beatles
We read this article and The Beatles
I think there is no one who has not heard of . After all, they themselves; A group that turned the music market upside down, where young girls who came to their concerts on time passed out with excitement.
in 1962 Decca Records
an admin at Rick Rowe was of the opinion that guitar sets were beginning to lose popularity. One-to-one year, on New Year’s Day, those times the Silver Beatles and on the drums Ringo Starr instead Pete Best The Beatles auditioned to sign with Decca Records. Rick Rowe, who heard the 15-song audition tapes of The Beatles a month later, was not impressed, as he refused to sign the memorandum without thinking about it. And that decision would be the biggest regret of Rick Rowe’s life.
On top of that, The Beatles EMI and released their first 8 albums. Parlaphone
Published under the tag . By the end of the summer 1967 of the cluster 38 million dollars is estimated to have won and The Wall Street Journal
According to , only in the United Nations in 1964 50 million dollars The Beatles record has been sold.
When the date showed the year 1968, The Beatles left EMI and their own record label. Apple Records founded. It’s not hard to guess that this is very heartbreaking for Rick Rowe.
In the 1950s, it was thought to be an over-the-counter sedative. Thalidomide, during the 50s and 60s 46 was used for morning sickness treatment of pregnant women in different country; However, by 1961, the negative effects of the drug began to show: Women who used Thalidomide for nausea during pregnancy had a heavy baby. with deformations was born. While the babies affected by the drug are generally born with short arms or legs, flip-flop-like hands and feet called phocomelia; some of them were born with eye, ear, heart and other organ problems that could not complete their formation in a healthy form. Until the production of the drug is stopped 100,000, pregnant women used this drug and babies 40% is estimated to have died during pregnancy or shortly after birth.
Today, Thalidomide is used in the treatment of many diseases despite the risk of significant birth complications and infant death. Thalidomide, which is approved for use in the treatment of skin lesions associated with multiple myeloma and leprosy, a cancer of the blood and bone marrow, is still under investigation for its potential to be used in the treatment of immune diseases such as lupus and Chorn, as well as complications related to other cancers, HIV.
Everything that caused the Titanic to sink
James Cameron, the huge cruise ship called “Even God can’t sink” Titanic
Almost everyone knows the story of .
A century ago, the Titanic set sail on its first voyage in the North Atlantic; but no one has this 1,500 did not assume that it would be the last voyage of the Titanic, which would also drag the passengers and crew to the depths of the ocean. The giant transatlantic, which set off from England for New York, is now 5., collided with an iceberg off the coast of Newfoundland and sank into the cold waters of history as a result of the blow. The only person responsible for this disaster was once again human.
The tragic end of the Titanic, which sank in April 1912, came in full view, with a succession of misconceptions. First, there were no safety regulations in place for a ship as large as the Titanic at the time. There was not enough safety equipment; on board just 16 there was a lifeboat which all passengers only one-third and the crew could not be provided with suitable binoculars and lighting. Worse still, the Titanic hadn’t even been tested. Only equipment has been reviewed; A test drive was not even considered necessary. As a result, the crew lacked command of the ship, state-of-the-art equipment such as the Marconi wireless communications system, and emergency procedures.
After all, the cause of the iceberg disaster that sank the Titanic, however operationally unprepared, is easy. from human error may be just that. In a 2010 study, it was revealed that the helmsman made a steering error while turning the ship around the iceberg, and this error was not corrected in time. Because of this easy flaw, the Titanic crashed into the iceberg, which was noticed quickly before midnight, and broke apart and sank at 02:20.
In the 1930s there was a dream of commercial airships that would take passengers across the Atlantic in just 60 hours. Airship travel was gaining commercial popularity and Hindenburg was also the largest airship ever built. In fact, it was the biggest thing that had flown at the time. today’s Boeing 747
It was three times taller and 2 times higher than . It was as luxurious as it was huge; There was even a light grand piano specially designed for the ship and, ironically, a smoking lounge.
In May 1937, the luxury cruise liner Hindenburg; in New Jersey while trying to dock Lakehurst Naval Air Base was suddenly engulfed in flames. With the fire that broke out, the huge Hindenburg only 37 disappeared in seconds and 97 with passenger 36 crew member also died in flames. So what went wrong?
First of all, Hindenburg replaces a less flammable alternative like helium with a highly flammable gas. hydrogen There are different theories as to what caused this hydrogen to burn. Was it struck by lightning? Or was the Nazi-funded Hindenburg with the swastikas on its tail a political motive sabotaged by a bomb or a gun? Or, as some people think, was the aluminum powder used in the paint causing the explosion? The most accepted theory today is that a broken or malfunctioning valve—or an electrostatic buildup from a hurricane—of hydrogen gas leaking out; The fact that the crew released the ropes for the landing of the ship may have caused a fire with the grounding or electrostatic discharge of the airship.
Napoleon’s invasion of Russia
Who thinks that the victory will be his for sure and thinks that the war will take 20 days at the most. Napoleon attacked Russia in June 1812 with one of the most numerous armies in history. On trade with England Tsar Alexander I, however, what Napoleon is really after is not Russia, but India. But a few ‘small’ details that Napoleon did not take into account would have resulted in a victory and the death of thousands of soldiers.
Typhus infecting soldiers, food shortages and freezing cold, the huge army could not move forward from Moscow with the last blow of the Russian army. At the beginning of the trip 600,000 100,000
Little more than remained.
Hitler’s invasion of Russia
As history has shown, it is not a plausible move to attack Russia so swayingly.
It was a war of giants in the full sense of the word; Nazi Germany Communist Russia
against . But this defeat Hitler received so far first major land defeat and would initiate the downfall of Nazi Germany.
In July 1941, Hitler, in defiance of the 1939 treaty signed between the Soviet Union and Germany, More than 3 million soldiers, 7000 artillery, 3000 tanks and 2500 aircraft attacked Russia with his army.
surprised at what happened Stalin‘s army was crushed under the German attack. Soviet troops in the first week of the invasion 150,000 suffered casualties and Germany, by October of the same year 3 million took a prisoner of war. German troops managed to reach Moscow in December 1941; But the war was taking much longer than Hitler had expected, and supplies of clothing, supplies, and medical supplies were dwindling along with the tired soldiers. Hitler lost the war as Soviet troops responded fiercely to prevent the fall of Moscow.
Trojans accepting the Trojan Horse

The Greeks planned to trick the Trojans into infiltrating the city. According to this plan, the Greeks would leave a farewell gift to the Trojans and pretend they were leaving the war. By Odysseus’ command Trojan Horse
They built a huge wooden horse known as that could fit dozens of soldiers. The plan of the Greeks, who pretended to go after leaving the horse at the entrance of the city, worked and the Trojans, believing that they had won the war, accepted the “gift” of their enemies and took them into the city. Just as at night, the soldiers who entered the city on horseback came out of their hiding places and Troy fell.
Iliad, Odyssey and Aeneid
It is still a matter of debate whether this epic, which is the subject of the epics , is a true event or a legend. There may be a role of lords in epics – in fact, these gods were the reason why the war broke out in the first place – but these deities, Homer and Virgil. So was the Trojan Horse real? Let’s look at the proofs. . . Maybe? Even historians disagree as to whether this war story is true or a fable.
In April 1846, Jacob and George Donner led by brothers 90 as many people and 20 a convoy from Illinois bound for California by wagon; familiar moment in history cannibalism was about to write one of his events. The convoy, which was on the road, which was in a mountainous region that was not well known at the time, decided to deviate from their route and take an alternative route, which they thought would be more short-cut, and this decision was the result of this trip in the cluster. 37the person will exit last trip.
The calculation in the house did not fit the market, and the road they thought of as a shortcut extended their travels much longer due to the freezing cold and rugged mountain road. The first death occurred with the death of a 2-year-old baby on the 24th day of the trip. Although the baby’s mother did not allow it at first, everyone’s eyes turned from hunger and after a while, they ate the baby’s corpse. Followed by, 7
A total of 37 people were defeated, of which were killed for willy-nilly, and the rest died for different reasons. Considering that they do not have a chance to start a fire, these 37 people raw raw
It should be noted that was defeated, naturally.
Drinking in America in the 1920s wasn’t something you could do when you were in the mood. It entered into force with the law amendment signed in January 1920. prohibition, the manufacture, distribution, and sale of liquor was prohibited in the United States until it was repealed in 1933; But strangely enough, it was not illegal to consume alcohol.
Considered a ‘noble experiment’, the prohibition on alcohol was expected to increase public health and hygiene, along with lowering the error rate and the money spent on prisons; but wait the opposite happened. Majority of alcohol-related offenses bang happened and willing to ignore what happened after taking bribe a corrupt political system appeared. The ban did not prevent people from drinking alcohol; just your action with what and where had changed.
Regulations could not be made on jag water, which is preferred by those who like cheap wine and stronger liquor, as they were not legal, and due to faked liquor, an average of each year during the ban was maintained. 1,000 people died of poisoning. The damage caused by the ban did not end there: Negative financial effects, which were never in the account, could affect the country. to an economic collapse dragged real.
