CURRENT EVENTS

Happy 4th of July

 BOOK OF THE WEEK

This book came out in 1994 and I first read it in early 1995 and have reviewed it a number of times since, including just last week. I think it is still an interesting read and it is still disturbing, perhaps even more so than I thought it was in 1995. It is only 112 pages readable pages. 

Creating A New Civilization

By Alvin and Heidi Toffler

The book describes society in terms of three waves of the change, and the impact those waves had on the existing social structure. The first wave being the agricultural age, which took thousands of years to play out. The second wave of social change is the industrial age, which is lasting around 300 years and now a third wave has arrived–information age. 

MOVIES OF THE WEEK

I’ve been watching Season 5 (The first season in color) of The Avengers and find it pretty entertaining. The show is typical of the production values of mid-60s.

The Avengers – Season 5 (1967)

MUSIC OF THE WEEK

Good Morning Vietnam

By Creedence Clearwater Revival

ART OF THE WEEK

American Flag Baseball Bats

  EXTRAORDINARY PEOPLE  OF THE WEEK

Signers of the Constitution of the USA

Jonathan Dayton, aged 26, was the youngest to sign the Constitution, while Benjamin Franklin, aged 81, was the oldest. Franklin was also the first signer to die, in April 1790, while James Madison was the last, dying in June 1836.

Virtually every signer had taken part in the Revolution; at least 29 had served in the Continental forces, most of them in positions of command. All but seven were native to the thirteen colonies: Pierce Butler, Thomas Fitzsimons, James McHenry, and William Paterson were born in Ireland, Robert Morris in England, James Wilson in Scotland, and Alexander Hamilton in the West Indies.

LEARNING TRAITS

You should subject your educational decisions to cost benefit analysis, rather than hoping the government will tax some one working in a factory to pay for your education so that later you can become their boss, if you are fortunate enough to even get a job.
