TAURUS

(APRIL 20 – MAY 20)

Theres a reason stock enthusiasts refer to the market as being a bull market when things are on the up and up. Taureans, the bulls of the zodiac, are known for self-indulgent greed and a penchant for material obsessions; and their desires for success drive them to situations and careers offering a quick buck. The bull, though, craves stability, steers clear of risk and does not deal well with change so dont expect a Taurus to stick it out when the going gets tough. If you want a bull to abandon its dogmatism, youre going to have to take it by the horns! (Rodeo clowns recommended.)


TELECOM TAUREAN

Guglielmo Marconi

(APRIL 25, 1874 – JULY 20, 1937

Thanks to Telecom Taurean Guglielmo Marconi, radio killed the telegraph star. At age 20, while studying at the Livorno Technical Institute in Italy, Marconi read a news article that suggested the possibility of using radio waves to communicate wirelessly. Marconi was challenged by the thought, and began experimenting at his familys home near Bologna. Over the next seven years, Marconi sent and received radio signals over increasing distances, and by 1901, Marconi was able to transmit signals thousands of miles across the Atlantic Ocean. In 1909, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics, shared with Karl Ferdinand Braun, who had modified Marconis transmitters to increase their range. All hail the father of wireless communication!
