In 1890, he founded the Edison General Electric Company and in 1892 Edison merged his company with the Thomas-Houston Company, creating General Electric. Jeffery Immelt is the current CEO of General Electric and has held this position since September of 2001.Immelt has been named as one of the top CEOs in the world and is widely respected in his field.Both the candle clock and the incense clock work on the same principle wherein the consumption of resources is more or less constant allowing reasonably precise and repeatable estimates of time passages.In the hourglass, fine sand pouring through a tiny hole at a constant rate indicates an arbitrary, predetermined, passage of time. Water clocks, also known as clepsydrae (sg: clepsydra), along with the sundials, are possibly the oldest time-measuring instruments, with the only exceptions being the vertical gnomon and the day counting tally stick.During the 15th and 16th centuries, clockmaking flourished.The next development in accuracy occurred after 1656 with the invention of the pendulum clock.There is a range of duration timers, a well-known example being the hourglass.
Beginning in 1981 with Jack Welch, GE's focus on breeding and mentoring strong leaders is unmatched by other companies.
With the knowledge of latitude, a well-constructed sundial can measure local solar time with reasonable accuracy, within a minute or two.
Sundials continued to be used to monitor the performance of clocks until the modern era.
Devices operating on several physical processes have been used over the millennia.
Some predecessors to the modern clock may be considered as "clocks" that are based on movement in nature: A sundial shows the time by displaying the position of a shadow on a flat surface.
