DALLAS (AP) –  Keys to the New Jersey lab where Thomas Edison invented
the phonograph and some of the light bulbs that he perfected sold for more
than $60,000 at auction on Saturday.

The keys sold for $10,625 at an auction run by Heritage Auctions in Dallas. A 
set of five Edison bulbs used in a court case sold for $30,000.

The items were acquired by Charlie Knudsen, 69, of Pittsburgh, and had
belonged to his great-aunt. She was married to one of the attorneys whose
law firm represented Edison in patent lawsuits.

PITTSBURGH (AP) –  The Pittsburgh-area McDonald’s franchisee who created
the Big Mac nearly 50 years ago has died.

McDonald’s spokeswoman Kerry Ford confirmed that Michael "Jim" Delligatti  
died at home surrounded by his family on Monday night.

Delligatti’s franchise was based in Uniontown when he invented the chain’s
signature burger with two all-beef patties, "special sauce," lettuce, cheese,
pickles and onions on a sesame seed bun. He also created the Egg McMuffin
breakfast sandwich in 1970.

Alfred Bernhard Nobel (October 21, 1833 – December 10, 1896)

Swedish chemist, engineer, and inventor of dynamite, Alfred Nobel used his
fortune posthumously to institute the Nobel Prizes. In his lifetime he issued
350 patents internationally and established 90 armaments factories. He grew
up wealthy after his father invented modern plywood and filed his first patent
himself in 1857, for a gas meter. While studying explosives, a shed he was
using for the preparation of nitroglycerin, exploded at a factory in Heleneborg, 
Stockholm and killed five people, including his younger brother Emil.
