Wabash & Erie Canal – A Chat with a Treasure of Delphi

Conversation with a Treasure of Delphi, Dan McCain.  I had the chance to catch up with him, recently, and we discussed Delphi history and the Wabash & Erie Canal history, which has been a life-long passion for him.  He is only two generations removed from the Wabash & Erie Canal heyday, and was born and currently lives in his family home very near the restored section of the Canal.  The importance of the Canal to the economic development of Delphi and Carroll County cannot be over-emphasized.

Please enjoy this 16-minute video about this important era in Carroll County and Delphi History.

Isaac Newton and Pi

The concept of Pi as representing the circumference of a circle has been around for *thousands* of years. Isaac Newton revolutionized the concept as part of his development of Calculus.

Yes, this is very nerdy. But it’s also fascinating – the history of Pi, and how Isaac Newton revolutionized a concept that had been used for thousands of years.
