Fritz Kreisler reportedly said after hearing a young Jascha Heifetz for the first time: "Well, I guess we might as well break our violins over our knees now"
Jascha Heifetz and Fritz Kreisler were both born on Feb. 2 - Kreisler in 1875 and Heifetz in 1901. They each set new standards for the art of playing the violin. Kreisler’s trademark was sweetness, warmth and humanity. Meanwhile, Heifetz, through his bowing technique and superhuman speed, achieved a level of virtuosity that is still unmatched.

A truly great man with an iron will, who did so many amazing things for South Afrika, for peace, for equality…today a living legend has passed.
Alphonse Gabriel “Al” Capone was born in Brooklyn to Italian immigrants, and became the most wanted American gangster in the 1920s/30s.
Got the nickname Scarface because of flirting with Frank Gallucio’s sister, who got mad and attacked him with a knife.
Al led the Chicago Outfit, who were known as the “Capones”. They smuggled liquor during Prohibition, and did other illegal activities, with which they made US$100 million per year.
Till this day his name is connected with ‘money laundry’, Al was the first man to buy and use laundromats to do tax evasion.
