Publishing in Google Currents for mobile; can choose who can see photos or sections;  post in "Articles" instead of photo album. No place to add Album description; "I envision a photo gallery dedicated to American history since the invention of the photograph....highlighting some aspect of personality. I do revert to the Civil War often to help me understand current American [political] culture. All photos courtesy of the Library of Congress."

"Read the speech" (Focus on Nasa). I practiced with Google Presentation to see what features it offers. I use slides for 'autonomous' presentations specially now with tablets; for public speeches, I like minimal use of text and instead give out papers for post-session reading. Q: In this scenario to test personal skills, how can I motivate a viewer to read an entire speech? Maps and photos always captivate; text should produce the same result and replaces sound. Google Drive allows me to update on the go, and publish on the web - updated automatically. On Chrome, I chose setting to begin slides automatically. I focused a lot on the timing of texts - small detail that makes a large impact. Playing in G+, I have to hit play button to start. Slides flow automatically or hit pause. Q: If i make changes, will people on my file list receive an email? Changes to cover in Drive do not show up in G+ post.Can embed on blogger also.-T

Excerpt: Note how widely these two particular merchants traveled. Both went back and forth among Manila, Canton, and southern India on several occasions. More remarkable was the fact that one of the individuals also journeyed extensively in Europe and Russia, sailing twice from Amsterdam to Archangel. This map surely deserves a place in world history textbook alongside those of other noted travelers of the pre-steamship age, such as Ibn Batutta and Zheng He.

"The Foreign Agricultural Service, a foreign affairs agency since 1930, was included in the Foreign Service Act of 1980. Agricultural attachés were offered the choice of remaining civil servants or being grandfathered into the Foreign Service. Since that time the vast majority of agricultural officers overseas, just like State Department officials overseas, have been Foreign Service Officers. Since 1939, 11 former agricultural attachés have been confirmed as American Ambassadors." from Wiki: http://goo.gl/2wUTN

Jake Ehrlich: "I have been wearing Rolex for more than a quarter century, but Chuck is going on at least his 64th year of wearing Rolex!!! " and Chuck Yeager was so impressed with his Rolex, he sent an autographed picture (seen below) of his record flight to Rolex in Geneva. For the record, this is the first time this signed photo, from General Chuck Yeager, to Rolex, has ever been published. (And remember, you are seeing it for the first time here on Jakes Rolex World!!!).

Excerpt:"A few days prior to his record flight, Yeager was seriously injured in a horse riding accident and suffered two broken ribs. The injury would jeopardize his flight status resulting in the removal from the mission. Scared, he went to a veterinarian for treatment and only told his wife about the accident. He also told his friend and fellow project pilot, Jack Ridley about the accident.

Yeager, on the day of the record flight, had trouble manipulating the closure of the X-1's hatch, and could not seal it properly. His pal, Jack Ridley, improvised a clever leverage device made from a broom handle, to assist Yeager with sealing the hatch, thus, allowing him to break the "speed of sound" record."

Q; Lincoln's handwriting? See the t-bars. "This document is presumed to be the only working, or pre-delivery, draft and is commonly identified as the “Nicolay Copy” because it was once owned by John George Nicolay, Lincoln’s private secretary. "

Baldwin of Boulogne greeted in Cilicia: Armenian Kingdom on the Mediterranean coast.

"The multi-ethnic population, as well as commercial and political links with Europeans, particularly France, brought important new influences on Armenian culture. The Cilician nobility adopted many aspects of Western European life, including chivalry, fashion, and the use of French Christian names. The structure of Cilician society became more synonymous with Western feudalism than to the traditional nakharar system of Armenia.

Cultural influence was not merely one-way, however; Cilician Armenians had an important impact on Crusaders returning to the West, most notably with their architectural traditions. Europeans incorporated elements of Armenian castle-building, learned from Armenian masons in the Crusader states, as well as some elements of church architecture. Most Armenian castles made atypical usage of rocky heights, and featured curved walls and round towers, similar to those of the Hospitaller castles Krak des Chevaliers and Marqab." from wiki http://goo.gl/XivdQ

Armenia: The region has been populated since Neolithic times, and petroglyphs from this period dot the landscape, bearing witness to the life of its prehistoric peoples. Modern DNA research indicates that many people who today call themselves Armenian descend from the most ancient peoples of Anatolia. The Biblical Hittite Empire (seventeenth to twelfth centuries BC) and the kingdom of Urartu (Ararat, ninth to the sixth centuries BC) were among those that ruled the area.

On display at the great Library of Congress, DC:"The first complete Armenian language printed Bible from Amsterdam in 1666 is on display;"

Don't try this on your own; excerpt:"The last items in the exhibition involved one of my favorite poets, Lord Byron, who apparently traveled to Armenia to learn the language. He wrote, 'I found that my mind wanted something craggy to break upon; and this – as the most difficult thing I could discover here for an amusement – I have chosen to torture me into attention. It is a rich language, however, and would amply repay anyone the trouble of learning it.'”

Pulitzer Prize 2012 for Commentary.. "Awarded to Mary Schmich of the Chicago Tribune for her wide range of down-to-earth columns that reflect the character and capture the culture of her famed city."

Sample:
"The next time someone wants to fill a public space with art, why not find a Chicago artist? Or a Chicago theme? Or a great piece of art from somewhere else that makes the point that Chicago is a city where great artists show their work?" http://goo.gl/8oTz7

"The will to understand - to thinking as away of life- is a source and expression of positive self-esteem."

Advice I relate with: "It doesn’t matter what you are excellent at, just that you have reached a level of excellence. It’s important that you know what excellence feels like and what it takes to achieve it. It could be gardening, jujitsu, or cooking. The main thing is you’ve had a taste of excellence and will know how to get there again."
