J.K. Rowling’s ‘Harry Potter’ Spinoff ‘Fantastic Beasts’ Will Be Trilogy - Variety

 
Variety 



Following in the footsteps of “The Hobbit” franchise, Warner Bros. is planning “three megamovies” for J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter spinoff, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”

The New York Times reports in its profile on WB CEO Kevin Tsujihara that the hotly anticipated franchise will be a trilogy.

Back when the series was first announced in September, Tsujihara was relatively tight-lipped about the project, only saying “The hope is that we’re going to build a film franchise.”

Tiny houses: A big idea to end homelessness = CNBC

This seems promisingly hopeful for solving one of the most tragic urban problems for millions, many of whom are our dear Veterans. Let's see...


Advocates tackling the nation's homeless problem are thinking small.

In Austin, Texas, a village of 200 tiny houses is being built for the homeless. In upstate New York,Rochester Greenovation has designed a prototype for small-scale individualized shelters. "Homeless No More Survival Pods" have been built in Utah, micropods in Florida, miniature homes in Wisconsin and minimobile houses in California.

The "tiny house movement," once considered merely an architectural component to a downsized life, is now becoming something much bigger: an escape from chronic homelessness.

Are YOU at Risk? 1 in 3 are. Kidney Disease - National Kidney Foundation



Yesterday was the clothing drive for our local chapter of the National Kidney Foundation. We support them strongly, as they support so, so, so many all over the US with this debilitating disease. But this time, they gave us something, too! A brochure, outlining the facts, which are more dire than we had known.

We have worked for many years with Christmas Wish Program/Project Hawaii, to help the homeless and abused Keiki and their families, mostly moms. It is still with such poignancy that we recall how one lady just almost hysterically wrote to all of us other volunteers, saying she could not help at all, as there was an EPIDEMIC of Kidney Disease that she was trying to fight. Yes, she worked for the National Kidney Foundation on the Big Island. The panic in her messages seemed like someone who was just...  Read More

This is why we Kiva: State of Development: Why Investing in Poor Countries Helps All of Us - Jim Kim President, World Bank

from LinkedIn: 


This post is part of a series in which LinkedIn Influencers analyze the state and future of their industry. Read all the posts here.

Many people have the misconception that my field -- global development -- is just about do-gooders and charities helping the poor. To be sure, many charitable groups are doing generous, laudable work. But global development extends far beyond charity and has a greater impact on the global economy than most people think.

Join the Discussion! Neil deGrasse Tyson Makes Us Feel Inadequate on This Week’s ‘Cosmos’ - Wire

The Atlantic Wire 





Add your ideas, insights, theories to these!

This week, 'Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey taught us about comets by offering a lesson on the men who, tangentially and directly, figured out what they are. The stars (so to speak) of the show are Isaac Newton, Edmond Halley (of Halley's comet), Christopher Wren and Robert Hooke. And, as always, the wonderful host, Neil deGrasse Tyson. 

Why do we know the names of mass murderers, but not scientists?

How Fun! Check out the Newest My Little Pony Rockin' Equestria Dolls!

For those who did not know, all the My Little Ponies now have matching Girl Dolls (to compete, of course, with Barbie and the Monster High Ghouls)! They went through a magic mirror last year, much like Alice's falling into Wonderland following the Rabbit down his Magic Hole. The Equestria Girls go to Canterlot High, and now have a Girl Band (perhaps to bring the popularity/aura of a long ago TV Series, Josie & The Pussycats, to help build adoration for the New Girl Band)!

Some have not been released (or perhaps made yet), but we have just received the first four of the Pony Teens with their Musical Accessories!

Please Meet the My Little Pony Equestria Girls Band Members:

Happy St. Patrick's Day - Even if You are Not Irish!

Surely you have seen the gorgeous Jacquie Lawson Animated Cards, either as a recipient or sender! We love her message about St. Patrick's Day as well as this Irish Yarn Dance Card. We hope that you will have a beautiful day, week and Spring!!!
 
St. Patrick’s Day must be unique amongst national holidays in that it is celebrated not just in Ireland, but all over the world; and not only by Irish people, but by anyone with the remotest connection to Ireland (and by many with none).

And that is why (in answer to a question we are often asked) St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated with a Jacquie Lawson e-card every year!

The Web: A proposal - CNET



In March 1989, Tim Berners-Lee wrote the first proposal for the World Wide Web at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, in Geneva, Switzerland.

Titled "Information Management: A Proposal", the document opened with this statement: "This proposal concerns the management of general information about accelerators and experiments at CERN. It discusses the problems of loss of information about complex evolving systems and derives a solution based on a distributed hypertext system."

The proposal, submitted on March 13, built on ideas that Berners-Lee had been working on with Belgian systems engineer Robert Cailliau. Outlining the central concepts and defining terms behind the Web, the document described a "hypertext project" called "WorldWideWeb" in which a "web" of "hypertext documents" could be viewed by "browsers."
