        <section id="tribute-info">
            <p>Here's a time line of Dr. Borlaug's life:</p>
                <li>1914 - Born in Cresco, Iowa</li>

                <li>1933 - Leaves his family's farm to attend the University of Minnesota, thanks to a Depression era
                    program known as the "National Youth Administration"</li>

                <li>1935 - 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."</li>

                <li>1937 - Finishes university and takes a job in the US Forestry Service</li>

                <li>1938 - 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.</li>

                <li>1941 - 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.</li>

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

                <li>1944 - 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.

                <li>1945 - Discovers a way to grown wheat twice each season, doubling wheat yields</li>

                <li>1953 - 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.</li>

                <li>1962 - 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>1970 - receives the Nobel Peace Prize</li>

                <li>1983 - helps seven African countries dramatically increase their maize and sorghum yields</li>

                <li>1984 - becomes a distinguished professor at Texas A&M University</li>

                <li>2005 - 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>

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

            <p>"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."</p>

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