Thanks for your kind words. I just read that paper on frequency response with interest.To see some of what is required from the regulator's standpoint, here are a couple papers that can be viewed with Adobe Reader.

I should have said first practical light bulb. I think he deserves the credit. According to https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0084AVTNK/?tag=pfamazon01-20, Alexander Graham Bell's phone was terrible, and not usable for long distance. Bell hired Edison and he designed the first practical phone for Bell under contract. Edison got cheated out of fame and credit for that work, I think he deserves payback on the light bulb thing.

But the winners get to write the history.
Or they could find one of these old resonant reed type frequency meters like this one I found for my collection. But that's a different subject.Readers can make their own frequency measurement device, plug it into a wall socket, and keep an eye themselves on what is happening. Your socket is just as good as any other place on the grid to make that measurement.
WOW! A vibrating reed meter with both 50 and 60 Hz sets of reeds. That has got to be hightly unsual and rare. I would say that you have a valuable item there. Congratulations.
Do you think that not lying and then avoiding correcting a lie is any less immoral.But the winners get to write the history.
None of these things are ever down to just one person. Don't lose too much sleep over the injustice of it all. Edison made a seriously important contribution to what we switch on every day.
P.S. Or is your family chasing some royalties on an ancient patent?
You seem to be a little bit emotionally involved with this issue (from the wording of your post). PF tries to be a bit more dispassionate.Do you think that not lying and then avoiding correcting a lie is any less immoral.

When someone reports on a historical event they may well write differently to someone else yet neither of them is necessarily "lying'". In any complex sequence of events (Science is a great example) there is often no truth involved. It's just interpretation. Do you have any hard evidence to support your introduction of the term "lying" in this context? Bearing in mind that this discussion is not PF style at all.
No. It's no more than a hill of beans, as someone once said.I'd prefer that if you want to continue that discussion, you take it to a private conversation. Or if you prefer, I can break it off as a separate thread. We need to keep this thread on-topic about the Insights article. Thanks.
Why do you use the word "simultaneously"? Just as with any arrangement of charges, the status takes time to establish itself. Not battery suddenly appears out of empty space but it will be assembled and charges will migrate to establish an equilibrium. The same point was discussed recently about the depletion layer in a solid state diode, which also does not suddenly appear.must SIMULTANEOUSLY detect the integrity
What museum is that photo from? I'd very much like to go there.ppps. If you look closely at the image, there is a chrome bar running the width of the middle panel, about waist height. I've just realized that It is the equivalent of the handles they put in the passenger sections of automobiles. Never thought about that before.
