IN HOMAGE TO NASA / A Tribute to John Glenn

 

I created this video for Ballyhoo Central that I recently shelved, though I would like to get back to it. But for now I thought it appropriate to feature this video here on my Artspeak Central blog as a tribute to Astronaut John Glenn, who has just past away at the age of 95.

The Cosmos is amazing and so too the people, both on the ground and in Space from various countries, who make our understanding of it possible.

When I originally created this video in 2015 it was the anniversary of  the NASA Moon Landing.

ENJOY and give John Glenn a warm thought!

In Memory Of Cecil The Lion = Slaughtered Animals Are Not Trophies

A wold free of cruelty towards animals  -and people- is the kind of world in which most of us want to live in and I know that -apart from psychopaths- we all want the same for future generations.

 

UK rejects Greece’s appeal to negotiate the return of the ever-controversial Elgin marbles

This is a very distressing state of affairs that a super powerful country like England can continue to keep possession of Greece`s ancient Parthenon marbles, which are a major part of Creece`s cultural heritage. This behaviour by England is very disappointing and is a stain on England`s reputation.

Art Law & More

At the end of last month the British Museum and the UK Government formally declined UNESCO’s request to enter into mediation on the subject of transferring the Parthenon marbles back to Greece. Removed by Lord Elgin from the Parthenon temple in Athens in the 1800s, the marbles were sold to the British Museum in 1816 and have remained there ever since. The sculptures date from 447-432 BC, and are divided between London and a purpose built museum in Athens.
