Little Girls, De Schindler, Movie Scene, Schindler'S List, List, Schindler S List, Favorite Movie, Red Coats
Schindler's List -although the movie was shot mostly in black and white, the little girl shown here represents real life Roma Legocka who was known in the town she lived by the red coat she wore.. Although in the movie she dies, in reality Roma survived the Holocost and lived on to write her memoirs which was published after the movie came out and is titled "The Girl in the Red Coat"
Movie: Schindler's List. This image of the little girl in a red coat is the only color in the movie, and it screams (or maybe that was me).
Schindler's List (1993, directed and co-produced by Steven Spielberg) - While the film is shot primarily in black and white, a red coat is used to distinguish a little girl in the scene depicting the liquidation of the Kraków ghetto. Later in the film, Schindler sees her dead body, recognizable only by the red coat she is still wearing.
Schindler’s List (1993). "The Little Girl in Red" is the only color in the movie, and it screams.
Schindler's List, one of my favorite movies even if it's very depressing :(

"Moonwalking With Einstein: The Art & Science Of Remembering Everything" book by Jonathan Foer --- The concepts used by the author in this non-fiction book mirror Sherlock Holmes' explanation (and use of) his "mind palace" in the BBC television series.

May 2012 Adult Book Club- Moonwalking with Einstein: the art and science of remembering everything by Joshua Foer (nonfiction)
NONFICTION. PSYCHOLOGY. Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything by Joshua Foer. The U.S. memory championships. United States Memory Champion Joshua Foer chronicles his exploration of human memory, examining how memory can be improved and discussing the value of memory. (Follett).
On average, people squander forty days annually compensating for things they've forgotten. Joshua Foer used to be one of those people. But after a year of memory training, he found himself in the finals of the U.S. Memory Championship. Even more important, Foer found a vital truth we too often forget: In every way that matters, we are the sum of our memories.
I just read this over the weekend (I love final exams). Joshua Foer (brother of Jonathan Extremely Loud) tells a riveting story of the memory championship sub-culture. While I won't be competing in the world championships anytime soon, I have a good idea of how to start my process.
EXCITED TO READ THIS~~At a time when electronic devices have all but rendered our individual memories obsolete, Foer's bid to resurrect the forgotten art of remembering becomes an urgent quest. Moonwalking with Einstein brings Joshua Foer to the apex of the U.S. Memory Championship and readers to a profound appreciation of a gift we all possess but that too often slips our minds.

moonwalking with einstein. literal book cover - memory techniques.
looks like an interesting book. it's on my to read list
Foer's unlikely journey from chronically forgetful science journalist to U.S. Memory Champion frames a revelatory exploration of the vast, hidden impact of memory on every aspect of our lives. On average, people squander forty days annually compensating for things they've forgotten. Joshua Foer used to be one of those people. But after a year of memory training, he found himself in the finals of the U.S. Memory Championship. Even more important, Foer found a vital truth we too often forget: In every way that matters, we are the sum of our memories. Moonwalking with Einstein draws on cutting-edge research, a surprising cultural history of memory, and venerable tricks of the mentalist's trade to transform our understanding of human remembering. Under the tutelage of top "mental athletes," he learns ancient techniques once employed by Cicero to memorize his speeches and by Medieval scholars to memorize entire books. Using methods that have been largely forgotten, Foer discovers that we can all dramatically improve our memories. Immersing himself obsessively in a quirky subculture of competitive memorizers, Foer learns to apply techniques that call on imagination as much as determination-showing that memorization can be anything but rote. From the PAO system, which converts numbers into lurid images, to the memory palace, in which memories are stored in the rooms of imaginary structures, Foer's experience shows that the World Memory Championships are less a test of memory than of perseverance and creativity. Foer takes his inquiry well beyond the arena of mental athletes-across the country and deep into his own mind. In San Diego, he meets an affable old man with one of the most severe case of amnesia on record, where he learns that memory is at once more elusive and more reliable than we might think. In Salt Lake City, he swaps secrets with a savant who claims to have memorized more than nine thousand books. At a high school in the South Bronx, he finds a history teacher using twenty- five-hundred-year-old memory techniques to give his students an edge in the state Regents exam. At a time when electronic devices have all but rendered our individual memories obsolete, Foer's bid to resurrect the forgotten art of remembering becomes an urgent quest. Moonwalking with Einstein brings Joshua Foer to the apex of the U.S. Memory Championship and readers to a profound appreciation of a gift we all possess but that too often slips our minds.

A Wrinkle in Time - by Madeline L'Engle One of my childhood favorites. This book cover creeped me out, though!
It may be almost two years away, but Fort Worth Opera has revealed an appealing program for its 2014 festival with two world premieres slated. A Wrinkle In Time is an adaption of the Madeleine L’Engle children’s book of the same name. With Blood, With Ink is the professional premiere of an opera based on Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, a 17th-century Mexican poet who also happened to be a nun.
my favorite book from elementary school with Mrs. Belanger and then we watched the movie!!!!
Quite possibly my all-time favorite book. A must read for all people, young and old alike.

One of the greatest of all horror writers, Edgar Allan Poe (1809-49) also composed pioneering tales that seized upon the scientific developments of an era marked by staggering change. In this collection of sixteen stories, he explores such wide-ranging contemporary themes as galvanism, time travel and resurrection of the dead.

This infographic from Best Computer Science Degrees, and using information sourced from David Allen Batchelor at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, provides a bit of a breakdown of what is and what isn’t technological fact from the world of Star Trek.
