Question by themoreitcoststhebetteritis: in 1894 how long would it take to get from a port in atlantic city to a port at western australia?
how long to get mail or telegraph invented yet? same distance same question? basically Atlantic City USA to Freemantle Western Australia?
Answer by tentofield The telegraph was invented in 1838. Trans Atlantic cables were working well by 1866. The link from London to Darwin was completed by 1871 and the Overland telegraph from Darwin to Adelaide in 1872. The cable from Adelaide to Perth was completed in 1877. By 1894, therefore you could send a cable from Atlantic City to Fremantle and it would get there in a matter of hours.
The Clipper ships would make the run from the UK to Australia in 100 days or less, the Cutty Sark did it in 72. Sailing from Atlantic City, you would not go to Europe but would either catch a ship going all the way or sail to Cape Town and catch a clipper to Australia. It would take about three months under sail.
Question by Shazza: I would like to move to California which city do you recommend?
San Diego, San Francisco or somewhere else. I have family in LA and I just don’t think I would love it there. I am a mid 30′s single African American woman, who loves culture, arts, fashion, diversity, and good eats. I am also a social media marketing consultant who currently works with fashion retail and small boutique stores. And I own my own naturally handmade bath and body products company. Where would I prosper with my career and business? I like city living, but need to pay suburban prices. Where should I go?
Answer by Philip F Cost and weather are major factors. The weather in the San Francisco Bay Area is much cooler than San Diego. That said, if you want suburban prices but close access to city living, you should consider Berkeley or Oakland. They both have better weather than San Francisco proper and are a quick jump away from the city. That said, I live in San Francisco and love it!
Below is a salary calculator that you might play with to think about different cities. I’ve also linked to a weather averages page for San Francisco.

My question for all you Americans is .. WHY some billionaire is the mayor of ANY city in USA?
Answer by Ingrid He does not have to be is just happens to be and even though I am just an average working stiff, I have no problems with Mayor Bloomberg being rich. Particularly not since he seems to be a very level headed individual with a great deal of common sense.
