1846 – Triton, the largest moon of the planet Neptune, is discovered by English astronomer William Lassell.
Triton is the largest natural satellite of the planet Neptune, and the first Neptunian moon to be discovered. It was discovered on October 10, 1846, by English astronomer William Lassell. It is the only large moon in the Solar System with a retrograde orbit, an orbit in the opposite direction to its planet’s rotation.[2][11] At 2,700 kilometres (1,700 mi) in diameter, it is the seventh-largest moon in the Solar System. Because of its retrograde orbit and composition similar to Pluto’s, Triton is thought to have been a dwarf planet captured from the Kuiper belt.[12] Triton has a surface of mostly frozen nitrogen, a mostly water-ice crust,[13] an icy mantle and a substantial core of rock and metal. The core makes up two-thirds of its total mass. Triton has a mean density of 2.061 g/cm3[5] and is composed of approximately 15–35% water ice.[6]

Triton is one of the few moons in the Solar System known to be geologically active (the others being Jupiter’s Io and Saturn’s Enceladus). As a consequence, its surface is relatively young with few obvious impact craters, and a complex geological history revealed in intricate cryovolcanic and tectonic terrains. Part of its surface has geysers erupting sublimated nitrogen gas, contributing to a tenuous nitrogen atmosphere less than 1/70,000 the pressure of Earth’s atmosphere at sea level.[6]

1898 – Lilly Daché, French-American fashion designer (d. 1989)
Lilly Daché (circa 1898 – 31 December 1989) was a French-born American milliner and fashion designer.

Life and career
According to Lilly Daché, she was born in Bègles, France.[1][2][3] Some questioned Daché’s French origins, speculating that she was Polish or Romanian.[1] Her birth year has been reported as 1893[4][5] and 1904.[2][3] Although she is said to have emigrated to the United States in 1924,[1][2] the 1930 U.S. Census reports her as having entered this country in 1919.

Lilly Daché began her career in New York as a salesperson, working at Macy’s and an independent hat shop on the Upper West Side.[1][2] Daché and a co-coworker bought the independent store.[1][2] A few month’s later, Daché bought out her coworker.[1]

Daché’s major contributions to millinery were draped turbans, brimmed hats molded to the head, half hats, visored caps for war workers, colored snoods, and romantic massed-flower shapes.[6] Daché is reported to have said, “Glamour is what makes a man ask for your telephone number. But it also is what makes a woman ask for the name of your dressmaker.”[7]

In 1931, Daché married French-born Jean Despres who was an executive at the large cosmetics and fragrance company, Coty, Inc. Together they adopted a daughter, Suzanne.[1]

Despite the economic effects of the Depression and World War II, Daché’s business flourished in the 1930s and 1940s.[1] Daché’s hats cost upwards of $20 at a time when a hat could be bought for just a few dollars,[8] but hats were still considered a cost-effective way for a woman to update her wardrobe.[1]

In 1937, Daché moved her entire operation to a nine story building on East 56th Street, combining her retail sales, wholesale trade, workroom and personal space.[1] Both the designer Halston and the hair stylist Kenneth worked for her before going into business for themselves.[4] Estimates of Daché’s yearly production ran as high as 30,000 hats a year.[9] By 1949, Daché was designing clothing accessories, perfume, and costume jewelry.[3] Celebrity clients included Sonja Henie, Audrey Hepburn, Carole Lombard and Marlene Dietrich.[4]

Not only was her brand well known, Lilly herself became famous. She was a mystery guest on a 28 August 1955 episode of the sophisticated television game show What’s My Line? (panelist Arlene Francis eventually guessed her identity).[10] She is also referenced in the song “Tangerine” performed by the Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra.

Daché’s books include Lilly Daché’s Glamour Book (1956) and her autobiography, Talking through My Hats (1946).

When Dache retired in 1968, Loretta Young bought her last thirty hats.[4]

Lilly Daché died in Louvecienne, France at the age of 97 in 1989.[4]

My brain is mentally fried by the time I leave the office, and it gets even more difficult to dedicate my after-work hours on creating. I think we all are very ambitious to pursue our passions and throw ourselves head-first into something, but eventually we end up in the same cycle of fatigue, internet surfing, and pushing things off to tomorrow.

The joint custody was officially granted by Judge Gregory S. Ross only this year, based on DNA tests confirming Mirasolo as the child’s father. The child’s mother, who is unnamed, told the Detroit News that she receives $260 a month in food stamps and health insurance for her son, and believes Mirasolo was given custody as part of a routine act of bureaucracy associated with public assistance requests. She thinks the state was “trying to get some of the money back” when Ross assigned custody on her rapist’s behalf, as it will affect the amount of money she receives.
