    <h2 id="headline">Here's a time line of Dr. Borlaug's life:</h2>


      <li><strong>1914</strong> - Born in Cresco, Iowa</li>


        <strong>1933</strong> - Leaves his family's farm to attend the

        University of Minnesota, thanks to a Depression era program known as

        the "National Youth Administration"



        <strong>1935</strong> - Has to stop school and save up more money.

        Works in the Civilian Conservation Corps, helping starving

        Americans. "I saw how food changed them", he said. "All of this left

        scars on me."



        <strong>1937</strong> - Finishes university and takes a job in the

        US Forestry Service



        <strong>1938</strong> - Marries wife of 69 years Margret Gibson.

        Gets laid off due to budget cuts. Inspired by Elvin Charles Stakman,

        he returns to school study under Stakman, who teaches him about

        breeding pest-resistent plants.



        <strong>1941</strong> - Tries to enroll in the military after the

        Pearl Harbor attack, but is rejected. Instead, the military asked

        his lab to work on waterproof glue, DDT to control malaria,

        disinfectants, and other applied science.



        <strong>1942</strong> - Receives a Ph.D. in Genetics and Plant




        <strong>1944</strong> - Rejects a 100% salary increase from Dupont,

        leaves behind his pregnant wife, and flies to Mexico to head a new

        plant pathology program. Over the next 16 years, his team breeds

        6,000 different strains of disease resistent wheat - including

        different varieties for each major climate on Earth.



        <strong>1945</strong> - Discovers a way to grown wheat twice each

        season, doubling wheat yields



        <strong>1953</strong> - crosses a short, sturdy dwarf breed of wheat

        with a high-yeidling American breed, creating a strain that responds

        well to fertilizer. It goes on to provide 95% of Mexico's wheat.



        <strong>1962</strong> - Visits Delhi and brings his high-yielding

        strains of wheat to the Indian subcontinent in time to help mitigate

        mass starvation due to a rapidly expanding population


      <li><strong>1970</strong> - receives the Nobel Peace Prize</li>


        <strong>1983</strong> - helps seven African countries dramatically

        increase their maize and sorghum yields



        <strong>1984</strong> - becomes a distinguished professor at Texas

        A&amp;M University



        <strong>2005</strong> - states "we will have to double the world

        food supply by 2050." Argues that genetically modified crops are the

        only way we can meet the demand, as we run out of arable land. Says

        that GM crops are not inherently dangerous because "we've been

        genetically modifying plants and animals for a long time. Long

        before we called it science, people were selecting the best breeds."


      <li><strong>2009</strong> - dies at the age of 95.</li>


    <blockquote cite="">


        "Borlaug's life and achievement are testimony to the far-reaching

        contribution that one man's towering intellect, persistence and

        scientific vision can make to human peace and progress."


      <cite>-- Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh</cite>

Hi @ Garffield and welcome to the forum!

There’s a typo in this id attribute:


Try just correcting that and then re-submitting to see if it clears the error messages.

Thank you… always the same thing :frowning:
