MODEL T SAFETY: The safety features of the Model T were abysmal. The automobile featured pane glass and a rigid steering column. Car accidents commonly featured severe lacerations to the driver caused by the front windscreen, and impalement to the face or torso caused by the rigid steering column. Horrific injuries such as these spurred automakers to consider crash scenarios.

100 years ago children played a large role as a human resource for factory and farm. These images, photographs taken by Lewis Hine between 1900 and 1910 are used to bring about reform.

Tony Casale, also called “Bologna” is 11 years old and has been selling papers for four years at this time. Tony sells until 10 P.M. some times. His paper boss told me the boy had shown him the marks on his arm where his father had bitten him for not selling more papers. He (the boy) said “Drunken men say bad words to us.” March 1909 in Hartford, Connecticut.

John Roberts (possible runaway) by Lewis Hine | Lewis Hine was a teacher, sociologist, and photographer. He taught the use of photography as a means of gathering information. His photos led to an awareness and a call for Child Labor Laws.

Newsies: Boys and girls – some as young as six – would sell in city neighborhoods. Newspapers may have several editions so newsies work morning or night. Newspapers were always in demand since they were the only regular communication people had beyond their families, neighborhood or work. |This is a colorized photo. The boys wear the same type of clothes (knickers) as better off kids. The poorer kids wore hand me down apparel.

Shorpy Higginbotham, a ‘greaser’ on the tipple at Bessie Mine in Alabama. He said he was 14 years old, but it is doubtful. He carries two heavy pails of grease, and is often in danger of being run over by the coal cars. He became a “poster boy” for the campaign against child labor.

When U.S. Soccer Was Young

FEBRUARY 2014

American Association Football or as it was called for a long time in England – soccer – celebrated its 100th year of formal existence this past year. American soccer teams and competitions were part of the 19th century American sportscape.  In the beginning of the 20th century, the competition became more organized. It did remain provincial. Most teams came from the Northeast and then St. Louis. There are excellent histories on the early years. This is a brief look. Here are some team photos and accompanying comments.

FYT SELECTIONS234

 

English journalist Jonathan Wilson specializes in soccer players from Eastern Europe. Among other ventures, Wilson works for Sky Sports. He has written knowledgeably about Eastern European football. He authored, “Behind the Curtain, Football in Eastern Europe.”

There are five players from former Yugoslav state that in January could play in  the Premiership and Wilson’s task was to comment on each of them. Among the five are two Croats:  Mario Mandzukic and Alen Halilovic. Along with them, there are Nemanja Matic (Serbia), Miralem Pjanic (Bosnia) and Mirko Vucinic (Montenegro).

MARIO MANZUKICWilson:  Mandzukic is not afraid of challenges, the Premiership would suit him. I’m sure he wants to stay at  Bayern, but if we look realistically, I do not know how he could get into the first team next year with the presence of Lewandowski and Müller and Götzea, [Formidable talents], all who can play in his position. Mandzukic plays with kind of ‘ madness ‘ that trainers fiind difficult to control.  Guardiola believes he is  a short-term expedient, but Mario is not a typical player by Guardiola taste, says Wilson.

Wilson: Mandzukic has the physical qualities which make him fit Premiership . He is not afraid of a challenge and enjoys the physical play as is the English style.  He is a player whose elbows fly everywhere.  I mean that in a good way. He is an  attacker who is difficult to dispossess. Will he go in January? Probably not, but Bayern could feel that now is the right time to gain a good transfer fee.

ALEN HALILOVICWilson: Alen Halilovic is a incredibly talented midfielder. Also, he can play on the wing and play into the middle.  But, I think that in the past year he was a bit ‘ cooked up ‘. He was too exposed and this was seen in a game. The challenge is to correctly use such a quality kid. Right now he looks exhausted. Maybe, he was struck in the head when linked with Tottenham this summer.  I do not know. He has not fully matured  He could thrive in the next year, but has to play and think more about football.

WFF: Since the summer, transfer reports have linked Halilovic to Barcelona, Arsenal, Real Madrid, Inter Milan, Bayern Munich, a Russian side and Spurs, again. No other young player has received so much interest. Such attention is bound to make a 17 year-old starlet giddy. If Halilovic stays at Dinamo Zagreb until June, the club must feature him more. Opportunities are fewer since Dinamo’s elimination from the Europa League. Dinamo has a comfortable domestic league lead. No matter. A fit Halilovic needs more starts and match minutes.

WFF: If contract negotiations exclude Dinamo receiving a large transfer fee, their unwillingness to play Halilovic may increase. Zagreb’s top man Zdvrako Mamic talks of Alen as “our jewel.” Of course, he is not a priceless jewel. Perhaps, Barcelona sees the situation best although the Blaugrana’s offer was rejected. Barca are willing to pay out €15 million, but Halilovic must prove his worth to receive the wages he expects.

As for now, in the midst of the January transfer window, neither Halilovic nor Mandzukic have a reason to pack their bags for England.

Jonathan Wilson’s assessment is a translation from an article written by Alen Besedić for Sky.hr

MARC CUCURELLAMarc Cucurella is an exciting 15-year old defender on the Barcelona Cadet A team. He is another shining light is La Masia’s dazzling display of young talent.

‘”Cu-Cu” is the name by which he is known in the locker room. Off the field among his friends he acts in an easy-going, timid way.  When he jumps onto the pitch, Marc transforms himself and his team. Cucurella pushes himself and urges teammates to give the best. There is only one thing in his mind: winning.

His image and his attitude on the field remind us Carles Puyol. Marc has Puyol’s profile and the same verve for the game. He likes the outgoing Puyol, but really admires David Luiz. Technically sound, his extraordinary reliability and competitiveness sets him apart. He becomes part of the full attack without missing his defensive assignments. Cucurella’s speed allows him to move forward and recover quickly.

Cucurella started playing football in his home town of Alella when a friend of his father  encouraged him to do the entry tests at RCD Espanyol. He developed for six years with the Parrot’s program. Two summers ago, Marc switched to FC Barcelona. At Barça, his group won their league last season and continue to do well in the current campaign.

When Marc arrived he struggled to adapt to the change in footballing philosophy after six years not playing the tiki taka. Now he is comfortable and plays the style by memory.  Tactically, his play is well understood by everyone inside and outside the locker room.

Cucurella’s great sporting moment was the call this past summer from Spain’s national Under-16 coach, Albert Celades.  He was given the opportunity to play two friendlies against Switzerland. Marc knows this is a privileged. Featuring as a Spain’s U16 will help tell what is to come.
