Forum: Current Events

  1. Virtual Graduation 2020

    Speaking of current events...I haven't been around much lately because I have been working feverishly on the Virtual Graduation for my school. Here is the finished product. It took me around 300 hours to produce. There's a great Time Magazine article on the current graduates and how their...

  2. Matthew 6:5

    I was watching trump declaring he was going to tell the governors to open the churches and it niggled. I'm not religious but I have actually read the bible (unlike many religious people I have met) and I was sure there was something about public praying and hypocrisy. "In the King James Version...

  3. Not with a Bang, but with a Sneeze?

    The news out of China lately is that a new bug is on the horizon. Yesterday in the news 6 people were reported to have died. Today, it is up to 17. Yesterday it was pretty much contained, and today it has affected four other countries. An interesting item, the suspected point of origin is a...

  5. John Conway, RIP

    https://www.theguardian.com/science/2015/jul/23/john-horton-conway-the-most-charismatic-mathematician-in-the-world I cannot at this point remember how many times I've implemented Conway's Game of Life, it's what I've generally done after writing "Hello World" in a language I've not used before....

  6. RIP Stirling Moss

    The greatest driver never to win the F1 world championship and a great rally driver too he remained involved in motor sport until into his eighties. He died at the age of ninety after a long illness.

  8. The Marquess of Bath, RIP

    It is the honesty, integrity and example of people like the Marquess of Bath which make Great Britain the country it is. We might all pause in respect and consider how we might each try to bring ourselves toward his level. This was a great man. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-13797011

  11. The Tamalpais High puzzle

    No doubt matters will become more clear with time but at the moment, https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/27/world/europe/italy-police-officer-murder-americans.html has me totally bemused. Among other things, every US news report I've seen about this refers to the Carabinieri as "Italy’s military...

  12. Max von Sydow, RIP

    One of the great film actors who made a difference to the medium. His work with Ingmar Bergman was the extension of film into Nordic, and thereby European, culture. The fact that he never received an Oscar says a great deal about America. It is laughable that he was never deemed worthy of an...

  13. Clive Cussler, RIP

    Mr Cussler financed and planned underwater searches for historically significant wrecks. I was rather impressed by his success in that area. Definitely worth the effort.

  15. Rush Limbaugh Has Advanced Lung Cancer

    This almost causes one to consider the notion of Karma. So what do we do now, wish him the best? I recall back in my original iteration saying that the world was a better place after Jerry Falwell died. That got mixed reactions. What says ye. merry gentlemen and gentleladies?

  19. ForumGarden's prediction regarding this so-called Global Warming crisis

    We've had various arguments about Global Warming on ForumGarden, I wonder whether I could talk people into discussing it from scratch rather than occupying their alloted trench and peering over the parapet waiting for the whistle to blow? Go on, just for once, a let's work it out rather than repeat...

  20. "It's All About The Oil" Explained

    Finally! Since the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, I've read many articles that point to oil as the rational, though what had been missing in those articles has been any kind of comprehensive explanation of what that means, leaving me confused. Until now! In this piece by Michael Hudson...
