"Our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children's future. And we are all mortal" - John F. Kennedy (Just wondering what all those denying Global-warming are going to breath and where they are planning on living - even in the 60's people were recognizing the need for concern.)
She wants to see more women taking chances and worrying less about how they are perceived. There is an issue about role models she says, adding that "it's a pretty sorry state of affairs that there are 24 universities in the Russell Group and I'm the only female vice-chancellor."

Stephen Bantu Biko
Have a strong mind!! soulfulremixed: Steve Biko was the founder of the Black Consciousness Movement in South Africa. In 1968 he cofounded the all-black South African Students’ Organisation. The organisation’s message spread from campuses to the general community, and in 1972 Biko helped found the Black People’s Convention.

Qiu Jin wore masculine attire before the Qing Dynasty and system of imperial rule fell (in other words, during a time when traditional Confucian values about women’s proper place were still dominant). She made war with the emperor and was beheaded. She’s touted as China’s first feminist…but perhaps we could even say she’s proto-genderqueer? I snagged this photo from the wonderful book Chinese Women Writers and the Feminist Imagination, 1905–1948 by Yan Haiping.
Feminist and revolutionary Qiu Jin was born in 1875 in China. She was vocal about women's rights and pressed for better access to education for women. At the time it was still customary for women to have their feet bound at the age of five, rendering women crippled and severely dependent on others. Qiu Jin encouraged women to resist oppression by their families and by the government, and to gain financial independence through education. She was beheaded by the authorities at the age of 31.

Alan Watts (zen author) - Died November 16, 1973. Born January 6, 1915. A British-born philosopher, writer, and speaker, best known as an interpreter and popularizer of Eastern philosophy for a Western audience. The Way of Zen (1957)
Alan Watts, this man is amazing he is so inspirational. This philosopher has made me see the world and the concept of life in a whole new dimension. This man is an inspiration to all xxxx
Best quote ever: “As it is, we are merely bolting our lives—gulping down undigested experiences as fast as we can stuff them in—because awareness of our own existence is so superficial and so narrow that nothing seems to us more boring than simple being. If I ask you what you did, saw, heard, smelled, touched and tasted yesterday, I am likely to get nothing more than the thin, sketchy outline of the few things that you noticed, and of those only what you thought worth remembering. Is it surprising that an existence so experienced seems so empty and bare that its hunger for an infinite future is insatiable? But suppose you could answer, “It would take me forever to tell you, and I am much too interested in what’s happening now.” How is it possible that a being with such sensitive jewels as the eyes, such enchanted musical instruments as the ears, and such a fabulous arabesque of nerves as the brain can experience itself as anything less than a god? And, when you consider that this incalculably subtle organism is inseparable from the still more marvelous patterns of its environment—from the minutest electrical designs to the whole company of the galaxies—how is it conceivable that this incarnation of all eternity can be bored with being?” ~ Alan Watts, The Book: On the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are

The Bimini glass studio was set up in Vienna in 1923 by Fritz Lampl (1892-1955) in association with his architect brothers-in-law, Artur and Josef Berger. The name ‘Bimini’ comes from a 19th century book that describes Bimini as an island where the spring of eternal youth can be found. Fritz closed the factory and emigrated to England in1938. He built a glass furnace in the basement of his London home. He called this new operation Orplid Glass and the Bimini name was discontinued.

WW2 hero, Enigma code breaker, and father of modern computing Alan Turing may be pardoned by British for his 1952 homosexuality conviction.
Alan Turing (1912-1954) British mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst and computer scientist. At Bletchley Park, he invented a computer to decrypt German messages encoded by the Enigma machine. He described 'algorithm' and 'computation'. His 'Turing Test' (distinguishing human and artificial intelligence), is evident in the CAPTCHA on web forms. The father of theoretical computer science and AI, he was convicted for homosexuality and suicided. The British government has since apologised

As a codebreaker at Bletchley Park in the UK during World War II, Turing led the team that cracked the "unbreakable" Enigma code used by the German high command for battlefield communications.
Steve Wozniak/Steve Jobs ~ "Apple was established on April 1, 1976 by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne, to sell the Apple I personal computer kit. They were hand-built by Wozniak and first shown to the public at the Homebrew Computer Club. The Apple I was sold as a motherboard (with CPU, RAM, and basic textual-video chips) – less than what is today considered a complete personal computer. The Apple I went on sale in July 1976 and was market-priced at…"
