- The first policewoman in the United States was most likely Marie Owens, who was hired by the Chicago Police Department in 1891. Although police matrons had worked in prisons in New York City prior to this, they did not have the authority to arrest as Owens did. Alice Wells was hired by the Los Angeles police department in 1910, and was the first American-born female police officer in the U.S., as Owens had been born in Canada. Today roughly 10% of the police force in the U.S. is women. Source

Image: The Ultimate History of Video Games: from Pong to Pokemon and beyond...the story behind the craze that touched our lives and changed the world, by Steven L. Kent (Author) Publisher: Three Rivers Press; 1 edition (June 4, 2010)Video Games Day
- The first game ever created is often thought to be Bertie the Brain, an artificial intelligence designed to play Tic-Tac-Toe. Considering Bertie was a 4-meter high machine built on vacuum tube technology, you can imagine it didn't get out much, in fact, it was disassembled after the Canadian National Exhibition it was revealed at, and never rebuilt. A year later a computer was built called Nimrod, Nimrod was a computer built and displayed at the Festival of Britain in 1951 and designed to play a game called Nim. Source
