    Museums are no dinosaur! Museums and new Instructional Resources

    in Education

    Museums are no dinosaur! Museums and new Instructional Resources.

    We've all experienced the museum as a place to go as a member of an elementary class or on a stormy weekend day. In the internet age, museums have an audience far beyond those who walk through the doors. Museums have a long history of creating resources to help teachers plan a class visit and materials for students that extend their visit into the classroom and home.

    In this show, we will explore a new generation of museums that provide rich experiences for learners that leverage the museums expertise and collections to extend their reach and impact on learners. We will hear how they plan and create those assets and discuss how they have or would like to work with publishers to increase the the reach and integration of their offerings into school practices. 

    Guests at the table:

    1. Kris Wetterlund, Director of Education and Interpretation at Corning Museum of Glass

    2. Dr. Marjee Chmiel, Associate Director of Curriculum and Communications at Smithsonian Science Education Center 

    3. Melissa Wadman, Manager of Program Evaluation at the Smithsonian Center for Learning and Digital Access

    World Kitchen Presents Wedding Day Radio: Sam Jaeger

    in Women

    Sam Jaeger is living proof that just because an actor has played opposite such ladykillers as Bradley Cooper—in American Sniper—and Benicio Del Toro—in Traffic—he can still wind up being the kind of guy you take home to mother. “We’ve been together for 16 years,” the star of NBC’s Parenthood tells Milling About host Robin Milling of college sweetheart Amber Jaeger. “We spent the first eight years trying to figure out what it means to be in love with your best friend. And one of the things my own parents did right was to stay married.  Still, it took a long time for me to be able to propose. It took an equally long time for my wife to be ready to accept. Looking back now, the marriage has changed. I think you go through highs and lows. And now having kids changes the dynamic of everything you do on a daily basis. It never occurred to me before I had kids that everything I did was entirely self-involved.”

    An Artist Speaks Season 4 Episode 2 with Guest James Fox

    in Art

    An entertaining interview with Fine Art Photographer James Fox. 

    James Fox has been a Fine Art Photographer since 1973. He has had several one person and group gallery exhibits and in 2012 James participated in a 5 month two person show at the Rockwell Museum of Western Art in Corning NY.

    “Much of my Fine Art Photography is abstract I feel that I’m responding emotionally to a something found.”

    “Look at the world twice if you wish to see all there is to see.”  This advice, attributed to an Indian sage, best explains what happens to me when I’m looking for images. Second looks often take many years to acquire and even then the vision is less than complete.  Second looks are necessary for the artist.  Over the years I would look at various locations or subjects and wonder how to make such beauty accessible to me as a photographer and how to translate what I feel to an image.  My second looks begin only after a scene has taken hold of my imagination and demands action.

    How True Christianity Leads To Islam

    in Islam

    Muslims devoutly believe in Jesus, Moses and all other true prophets. Catholics, Protestants, and Muslims all claim to believe in Jesus. Why, then, are there such differences among his believers? The fact is that his teachings have been misinterpreted and misrepresented. Jesus himself did what a sincere Muslim would have done. He submitted to the will of God. He, further, prophesied the corning of Prophet Muhammad.

    This short booklet offers Biblical teachings which disavow some beliefs which are wrongly attributed to Jesus Christ. It tells that there is no contradiction between Islam and true Christianity. True Christianity, in fact, leads to Islam.

    The whole purpose of this booklet is to promote better understanding, closer relationship, peace, and harmony between Muslims and Christians.


    Jesus said:

    "Nevertheless I tell you the truth: it is expedient for you that I go away; for if I go not away, the comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment ... I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.

    "Howbeit when he, the spirit of truth is come, he will guide you unto all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come.

    "He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you". (John 16:7-15)

    America`s most lethal secret agent

    in Politics Conservative

    the US government sprayed some 20 million gallons of herbicides and defoliants over vast areas of South Vietnam (and to a lesser extent in Laos, Cambodia, and even, marginally, North Vietnam), in “Operation Trail Dust.” Some 95% of the herbicides were sprayed by the US Air Force flying C-123s as part of “Operation Ranch Hand.” Fitted with specially developed spray tanks with a capacity of 1000 gallons of herbicide, the planes typically sprayed a 14 kilometer (8.5 mile) swath of land in about 4 ½ minutes. The remaining 5% were sprayed by backpacks, hand, helicopters and trucks around US military installations by the US Army Chemical Corps and allied forces. The herbicides sprayed were up to 50 times the concentration that would have been used for normal agricultural use.


    In a three year study, 70 volunteer prisoners at the Holmesburg State Prison in Philadelphia were subjected to tests of dioxin, the highly toxic chemical contaminant in Agent Orange. Lesions which the men developed were not treated and remained for up to seven months. None of the subjects was informed that they would later be studied for the development of cancer. This was the second such experiment which Dow Chemical undertook on "volunteers" who did not receive the information which the world proclaimed was necessary for "informed consent" at Nuremberg. [Note: Dow/Corning manufactured and sold artificial breast implants even after the health risks of the implants became known. [The massive class action lawsuit was only recently settled].
