Clear to me that this has been a deeply harmful, persistent problem and a clear pattern over a long period of time. It time for him to step aside. The writing appeared to be on the wall, Franken departure was not certain. Moving from sitcoms to headlining movies is a time honoured (and sometimes abused) tradition. Jackie Gleason parlayed his 1950s popularity as Ralph Kramden in The Honeymooners into an Oscar nominated role as Minnesota Fats in The Hustler (1961). John Travolta, Robin Williams, Woody Harrelson, Tim Allen, Jim Carrey, John Goodman, Will Smith and Jennifer Aniston all did the move successfully, too..

He was an active skier, particularly at long distance skiing in mountain areas. He is also said to be the first person in the district to cycle as a sport, and in this way be brought this sport with him to Levanger. He was the first chairman of the cycle club TVK in Trondheim (Trondhjem Velocipede Club) which was established in 1885 and he was the first foreigner who entered a cycle (velocipede) competition in Denmark, when he in 1887 cycled a track competition in Copenhagen.

When Shockley and two partners developed the first semiconductor, Shockley did the foundational research and then got distracted by another project, his partners finished it up and got the patent, and all three were awarded the Nobel Prize. But the semiconductor they designed was an awkward thing, made with gold, about the size of a small fist, and of limited usefulness. Shockley partners wandered off into other research while Shockley started working on a semiconductor made with silicone, not gold, that would enable the creation of semiconductors so tiny that trillions of them would fit into a computer frame.
