CURRENT EVENTS

BOOK OF THE WEEK

Back in 2017, Bill Gates suggested to me and 1 million of his other closes friends, that I read this book.

This book is not brief, my hard copy is close to 450 pages and the paperback is 578 pages.

However, the book is interesting and well written in easy to read language. As with any large book, some of you may want to skip some of the pages. I found the early part of the book about pre-history fascinating and something everyone should read and accept or reject as you are inclined.

Sapiens

By Yuval Noah Harari

Human history has been shaped by three major revolutions: the Cognitive Revolution (70,000 years ago), the Agricultural Revolution (10,000 years ago), and the Scientific Revolution (500 years ago).

MOVIE OF THE WEEK

This is a good movie and Sandra Bullock, as usual, is very entertaining. Brad Pitt was great in what little he was in the film.

Definitely worth seeing once.

PHYSICAL TRAITS

Remember, the Lord helps those who help themselves.

Especially, if they help themselves to some vegetables.

CHARACTER TRAITS

Oscar Night

Many of you have seen this video and there are some who think Will Smith did the right thing.

You are wrong!

Please also note that Chris Rock had his hands behind his back, when he received the cowardly sucker slap from Will Smith.

Later, Will Smith received a standing ovation when he received his Oscar, which tells you all you need to know about Oscar Night.

LEARNING TRAITS

Most people are only as happy as they want to be.

    • As always, thank you Priscilla for your comments. I look forward to them. Brad Pitt’s role was just a bit more than a cameo, but he was so good. Glad to hear you liked this week’s music.
