An Academic Librarian's tidbits: Tuesday, December 16, 2014 Chanukah begins this evening at sunset. Birthdays include: Jane Austen (1775). As most of us know, she was an English novelist who wrote Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility. Ludwig Van Beethoven (1770). Regarded by many as the greatest orchestral composer of all time, Beethoven was impaired of his hearing before he was 30, but even total deafness did not halt his composing and conducting. His last appearance on the concert stage was to conduct the premiere of his Ninth Symphony at Vienna, Austria, May 7,1824. He was unable to hear either the orchestra or the applause. Arthur C. Clarke (1917). Clarke was a popular writer of science fiction in the 20th century. His short story "The Sentinel" (1951) was the inspiration for the successful film classic 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). Margaret Mead (1901). She was an American anthropologist and author, especially known for her studies of peoples of the southwest Pacific area, and for her forthrigh ...
Announcement: I am excited to report that the proof-of-concept prototype for Tree of Life is complete. It has been running for the past several weeks and preliminary checks of all three systems (water purification, cookstove improvement, and renewable power supply) were successful and exceeded expectations! Thank you all for your patience, support, and encouragement over the past several months. It means more than you can know and is driving this concept to success. The next step is to scale up for manufacturing and bring Tree of Life to market. That involves raising the funds needed for industrial design review, engineering improvements for mass manufacturing, production facility set-up, and purchase of raw materials. If you want to be involved and support the final development of Tree of Life, we could use your help. There are three ways to support the transition to manufacturing: 1) Pioneer/Early Adaptor – Are you interested in off-grid solutions, rainwater harvesting, or lowering your environmental ...

More information on Louis Zamperini: In the late 1960s, Sister Olive Louise Dallavis, CSJ, then-president of Avila University, decided that Avila should support a lecture series like other colleges. She admired President Harry S. Truman as an ordinary Missourian, honest and straightforward, and thought him underappreciated as a president, but believed history would prove him a great one. She presented her case to Truman and, in 1970, received formal approval and exclusive rights to offer a lecture series to Kansas City in his name. The first Truman lecture, held in 1971, was delivered by David E. Bell, Vice President of the Ford Foundation and Truman’s first administrative assistant. Since then, Avila has hosted such lecturers as anthropologist Margaret Mead, author Sister Helen Prejean (Dead Man Walking); commentator and author William F. Buckley; former Kansas City, Mo., police chief and former FBI director Clarence Kelly and Nancy Landon Kassebaum Baker, the first woman elected, in her own right, to ...
