SIMON SCHAMA'S HISTORY OF NOW REVIEW ...


Forrest Gump meets ACADEMIA in a very special project

In an interview last week, he revealed that the producers had to talk him into the personal reminiscences, which he had not intended to include in the script. For a public intellectual, Schama appears to have only a moderately-sized ego. I remember a debate some years ago about whether or not Schama was dumbing down history. That idea sounds laughable now, set against the current TV landscape. And Schama’s job is not to present programmes in the style of dry academic lectures, but to communicate information and ideas with fluency, which is something he usually manages to do.

Created in 1902 by Edward VII, the Order of Merit



...[IS] the personal gift of the monarch.

There can only be 24 living members at any one time, making it a highly exclusive collection of figures from the arts, sciences, culture and military.

Current members include David Hockney, Sir David Attenborough, Betty Boothroyd, the former Commons Speaker, and Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the pioneering computer scientist. The new appointments, the first since 2015, were awarded by the King during a service at the Chapel Royal.

The monarch then hosted a pre-lunch drinks reception in the Picture Gallery, where he complimented Hockney on his yellow footwear, worn with matching glasses and a flamboyant suit. The artist, who used a wheelchair, insisted on standing when he met the King.



Hockney, 85, is preparing to launch an immersive experience which will give visitors the opportunity to engage with audio and visual elements to …

A KEY COP27 GOAL WAS TO...

... strengthen emission pledges made at last year’s climate summit in Glasgow. These are needed to ensure global heating is limited to 1.5C. No such commitments have been made in Egypt and most observers now conclude the world is destined to heat beyond this limit.

“I struggle to understand how anyone can continue to argue that 1.5C is still alive,” said James Dyke, from Exeter University’s Global Systems Institute. “We are now entering a much warmer and more dangerous world.” This point was backed by Professor Kevin Anderson at Manchester University’s Tyndall Centre. “A year on from the Glasgow Cop26, a further 40bn tonnes of carbon dioxide has been spewed into the atmosphere. Another miserable facade of climate concern grinds to its ‘groundhog’ end.”

TRUTH•SYMMETRY•SELF•BEAUTY

You will be challenged to face a reality so shocking

you might have difficulty accepting it
. 



While no one can predict exactly what the future will bring, we do know what time it is on the clock of the world: human systems are in global ecological overshoot and global climate disruption is locked-in. As a result the ecosystems we depend on for life and our complex human civilization are approaching imminent collapse. There are many signs this will not just happen to others, far-away, in some distant future, but that we are likely to experience it ourselves, in our lifetimes, at home, wherever we live. 



Yes, this is heavy; and we make no apology – there is no gentle or easy way to say this! Collapse will bring massive suffering and death; it will mean the extinction of many forms of complex life on Earth – potentially including humans.

I would extend my most grateful thanks to …

As of this morning, Republicans...

    ... had yet to secure a majority in

   either the House or the Senate.

     

      Across the country, Democrats won races that many in

    the party expected to lose. Millions of votes are still to

    be counted, particularly in western states, but this much

    is clear: Even if Republicans eke out narrow congressional

    majorities, 2022 will be remembered as a triumph for

    Democrats, easily the best midterm cycle for an

    incumbent presidents party since 2002, when the

    country rallied around George W. Bush and his GOP in

    the aftermath of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

The great Pyramids of Egypt remain...

.. one of the 8 wonders of the world and although they have been studied by scientists and archeologists for centuries, there is still a lot we don't know about them. Archeologists have studied the structure, origin, and contents of the Pyramids but there are some discoveries that are not just surprising but simply terrifying. In today's video, we'll be looking at 15 reasons why the Egypt Pyramids terrify scientists, and be sure to stick to the end of the video to find out some amazing facts we bet you never knew about the ancient pyramids.

Truss on collision course with Rees-Mogg...

... and so the TRUSS MOB LOT continue with their agenda  

    which [IS] verging on the ridiculous !!!??? 

Clive Lewis, a Labour member of the committee, also challenged Stuart, quoting the executive director of the IEA saying there should be no new oil and gas drilling beyond 2021 if the world were to stay within safe limits of global heating and meet the goal of net zero emissions by 2050.

Lewis also cited the UCL Energy Institute, which said development of new UK oil and gas fields was not compatible with limiting global warming to 1.5C in the Paris climate change agreement. And Lewis referred to the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, which said rich countries must stop oil and gas extraction to keep the world on track for limiting global heating to 1.5C.…
