#99 – Dick Bernard: "Capitalism: a Love Story"

(As you see this film, I’d like your comments to add, here.) October 8, 2009:  We saw “Capitalism: A Love Story”, this afternoon.  It is well worth the time, and it’s messages will be conveyed in a later post.  Even if you think that Capitalism is all there is, this film will cause you to […]

#83 – Dick Bernard: "I loved her first…."

At my age, it’s a given that I’ve been to many weddings over the years.  Yesterdays was a bit more special than most, even though I had no direct involvement with it, other than attending and participating as a guest (the bride-to-be was my wife’s niece). Sometime after the wedding and the dinner, somebody mentioned […]

Note comment following this post. Other posts on this topic: July 24,26,27,29,30,31,August 1,2,5,7,10,15.

#37 – Dick Bernard: The "Can don't" * problem….

 Continuing the “Crash Course” conversation (previous postings at May 11 and June 3, 2009). This “thread” tends towards conversation about Climate Change.  I recommend an eight minute down-to-earth talk by 2007 Nobel Peace Prize co-winner, Prof Richard Alley, to school children about the topic.  It is accessible at http://www.peacesites.org/educators/nobelfestival.  Click on link to Prof. Alley’s presentation.  Professor […]

#26 – Dick Bernard: NIMBY – Are we killing ourselves through "fear itself"?

Shortly I will join a webinar sponsored by the Connect US Fund (www.connectusfund.org).  The title of the session “The Fear Factor: A briefing on communication and messaging from U.S. In The World”.   The  suggested readings are listed at the end of this posting.  They are very interesting.   I write intentionally before that session convenes.  […]
