300 Years of FOSSIL FUELS in 300 Seconds

In the video 300 Years of FOSSIL FUELS in 300 Seconds, at 00:33 the individual Samuel Newcomen is mentioned. The transcript incorrectly says "Newcome".

A quick search shows that the actual name is "Newcomen":

There is another problem with his name:
"Samuel Newcomen invents a coal burning steam engine
to pump out water so miners can keep digging."
His name actually seems to be THOMAS Newcomen: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Newcomen
Do we want to state it correctly in the transcript by writing something like the following? "[Thomas] Newcomen". So it is easier to search for his name if somebody is interested.

01:04-01:08
"Meanwhile, Edwin Drake drills the first Rock Oil well in Pennsylvania.
and Carl Daimler builds an automobile running on petroleum." The second line has to start with a capital letter or the full stop has to be omitted from the first line.

01:09-01:12
"and Carl Daimler builds an automobile running on petroleum." Was it Carl Benz or Gottlieb Daimler? I guess it was Gottlieb Daimler. However, the second case where to first name is stated wrongly in the video!
