Lazy Eight in fields outside of Mathematics[edit]

Plan for disambiguating Lazy Eight. As of 21 May 2010, Lazy Eight refers to VistaVision. There are many other meanings. Including:

Livestock branding (type of brand) Infinity (symbol) Airplane Maneuver see: CT-134 Musketeer.

I think it might make sense to link in cultural references to infinity symbol. In particular, I've seen the "Lazy Eight" reference to infinity reflected in Aviation [1], Cinema Lazy_Eight#History, Livestock branding, and even in Science Fiction. In Science Fiction, Larry Niven used the "Lazy Eight" as the name of a series of ships in his Known Space series of stories. Lent 13:17, 7 April 2007 (UTC)

How do I do references?[edit]

If you know where in Wikipedia there is the "standard" way to do references, please link it here. Thanks!

I'm trying to clean up my references in pages like Bill_N._Lacy.

Turns out Wikipedia:Citing_sources is a good place to start :-)

Tesla:

“Nature has stored up in the

universe infinite energy. The eternal recipient and transmitter of this energy is the ether…Of all forms of nature’s energy, which ever and ever changing and moving, like a soul animates the inert universe, electricity and magnetism are perhaps the most fascinating…What is electricity, and what is magnetism?”</blockqquote>

First world war: Organizing the sailing of the Principe Di Udine to evacuate Americans from Italy. Gano Dunn served as treasurer, accepting cash or "evidences of credit" for passage. Many of these Americans had been forced to leave France, Spain at the start of the war. While many were wealty, banks had closed leaving ready cash unavailable, with banks refusing to cash American Express Travellers checks.


The committee of guarantors consisting of Messrs Smith Vanderbilt Butler and Dunn not only guaranteed to the American Express Company in Genoa the letters of credit travelers checks and personal checks of those of their fellow passengers who were unknown to the American Express Company but they also assumed the obligation to meet the deficiency which resulted from the difference between the passage money paid by the 399 passengers and the chartered price of the ship In round numbers this deficiency amounted to 40,000 dollars . <a href="https://books.google.com/books?id=iJA2AAAAMAAJ&vq=gayley&dq=mrs.%20gano%20dunn%20gardiner&pg=PA12&ci=178%2C346%2C691%2C312&source=bookclip"><img src="https://books.google.com/books?id=iJA2AAAAMAAJ&pg=PA12&img=1&zoom=3&hl=en&sig=ACfU3U1MvO1aNX6mzYXevTTv9CKYib60-g&ci=178%2C346%2C691%2C312&edge=0"/></a>

Yacht Niligara:

[7]

The vessel Niliraga is a schooner with after cockpit, a wood hull, 2 masts, a double rig headsail and a Marconi main was designed by Alden Designs #309H, John Gale Alden (1884-1962) built in 1928 by Goudy #038; Stevens at East Boothbay, Maine for Gano Sillick Dunn (1870-1953). The ship is named for "niliraga" in Sanskrit meaning "an affection as unchangeable as the color of indigo".

... In 1928 Gano Sillick Dunn had "Niliraga", an Alden-designed forty-three-foot centerboard schooner, built by Goudy & Stevens in East Boothbay, Maine. The Dunns rented a summer cottage, "Little White Hen" on Sutton Island. After Julia Thurston (Gardiner) Gayley Dunn died in 1937, Gano moved off Sutton Island and summered aboard "Niliraga" using his stepdaughter, Agnes Malcom (Gayley) Gerrish#039;s cottage, "The Haven" in Northeast Harbor, as his land base.. A succession of local men served Mr. Dunn as cooks aboard "Niliraga." ... When Gano Sillick Dunn died in 1953 he left "Niliraga" to Agnes Malcolm (Gayley) Milliken's sister, Florence "Folly" (Gayley) Montgomery, Mrs. Henry Eglinton Montgomery (1889-1975). More interested than her sister, Agnes Milliken managed "Niliraga."

Vannevar Bush's "Biographical Memoir" glosses over his father with "Dunn's father died before Gano had finished his education" but does list his mother as "Amelia Sillick Dunn". This matches the "Amelia Sillick" name in the NY Times March 30, 1887 article which mentions General N. Gano Dunn deserting his wife and family for Colorado.
