Intelligence, fact, politics, wisdom, conscious machines and historical lessons

Intelligence, fact, politics, wisdom, conscious machines and historical lessons

History does not repeat. People do. --- Voltaire

As an historian, I am not supposed to say that people often cannot learn from history. Yet that is what I wrote in my last column.

However, I still see much value in studying history for we-the-people who want to have some control over the politicians who have been elected to govern us. But studying in a particular way, not for facts but for wisdom.

According to a recent IPSOS poll “nearly one-half of online Canadians (45%) are now visiting a social networking site at least once a week, and 30% visit daily”; source:  http://www.ipsos-na.com/news-polls/pressrelease.aspx?id=5286.

When a person gets the call to film for the Dragons’ Den TV show, it is unheard of to refuse. So when long-time Grand Forks resident Gary Gilbert got the opportunity to pitch his invention to the Den, he jumped.

The opportunity turned into a nerve-wracking, intimidating experience travelling to Toronto, Ontario to film in front of the Dragons. Gilbert’s history as a performer paid off as he stayed cool while the Dragons grilled him on his product.

Save The Royal campaign begins!

Save The Royal campaign begins!

This may come as a surprise to some, but unfortunately the live music venue we all love is in some trouble. 

As most everyone is aware, it takes time for a business to grow. 

Since taking over the Royal, just over a year ago, Howie & Paul have been investing all their time and money into making it grow as a musical mecca in BC. 

Their sincere love of live music, and deep love for this wonderful town of Nelson, keeps them and the staff completely devoted (and extremely over-worked) to the Royal.

I was cruising around Pinterest one day and found a quote that struck something deep inside me. It read, "I have an irrational fear of wasting a good outfit on an insignificant day." (I know, deep, right?)

Anyway,I gasped in excitement and thought, "Oh my gawsh, that's totally me!" and quickly 'pinned' it before moving on to other sparkly things ... but something pulled me back.

What the heck is with that anyway?!
