I read the quote by a renowned social anthropologist Dr Margaret Mead. When a reporter asked her, "When do you declare that human civilization has started at this particular point while excavating?"
Her answer was a typical one like roads, utensils, constructions etc. She declared "when I found a healed femur bone, I declare that the human civilization has started here!"

I started wondering, who this person was? How did he take a stand against routinely accepted norm of leaving an injured mate behind to die? What turmoil had he gone through? How had he communicated his anguish to the others living with him when language was primitive? What caused him to do this strange and unique thing in the first ...

What is your favorite poem? That is the question students from two fifth-grade classes at a New York grade school asked famous people to whom they had written. Their idea, the students explained, was to put together a book that would benefit the Women's Commission for Refugee Women and Children. The students were also studying poems in class and wanted to know if anybody still, in fact, read and gained insight from poetry. Touched by this appeal to their hearts, minds, and memories, fifty celebrities responded to their inquiries, including Geraldine Ferraro, Allen Ginsberg, Rudi Giuliani, Peter Jennings, Angela Lansbury, Yo-Yo Ma, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Sawyer, Ally Sheedy, Kurt Vonnegut, and Tom Wolfe. The poems they offer range from John Donne to Langston Hughes, but their letters all express hope that the studentsand readers of this wonderful gift bookwill read and take inspiration from the poetry of past and present.

Top Gun heads to outer space in this throwback to the classic science fiction of Asimov, Clarke, and Heinlein.
Strapped in to artificial wings spanning twenty-five feet across, your arms push a tenth of your body weight with each pump as you propel yourself at frightening speeds through the air. Inside a pressurized dome on the Moon, subject to one-sixth Earth's gravity, there are swarms of chiseled, fearless, superbly trained flyers all around you, jostling for air space like peregrine falcons racing for the prize. This was the sport of piloting, and after Helium-3, piloting was one of the first things that entered anyone's mind when Borealis was mentioned.
It was Helium-3 that powered humanity's far-flung civilization expansion, feeding fusion reactors from the Alliances on Earth to the Terran Ring, Mars, the Jovian colonies, and all the way out to distant Titan. The supply, taken from the surface of the Moon, had once seemed endless. But that was long ago. Borealis, the ...

Antonio Vivaldi's music has mesmerized audiences for three hundred years.
A less known story than his musical genius was the impressive figure that he was in Venetian society; the young, red-haired prodigy could make women swoon with the sweeping grandeur of his violin performances - especially after he traded in his priest's robes for the dashing attire of a celebrity.
Through the words of his lifelong friend, Domenico Trapensi, Vivaldi's Girls tells the mesmerizing story of Vivaldi's time as a music teacher at Venice's Conservatorio, of those who fell for more than just his violin lessons, and of his romancing of other girls on the road to the Italian cities in his time.

Logician spoke up then. "Thirty-one and I discovered another door to our world. Except, it was not our world, but another."
"You were in another cubicle?" Stormer asked.
"No," Logician replied. "We found ourselves in a world of tremendous color. It was a new world."
"And when we looked up into the sky," Thirty-one continued, "we saw a single star."
Stormer let out his breath. "And it all just happened -- "
"Not instantaneously," Logician cut in, as if guessing Stormer's thought. The idea of a Thinker being able to second-guess him was a troubling one indeed. "We seemed to have lost this world suddenly. But before we found ourselves in the new world, we seemed to be moving -- somehow -- as if in a dream. When I realized that I was, in fact, no longer moving, I was at that instant in the new world. And that is when I felt curiously healthy once again, as when last in our own world. And it is my opinion that we should all go there at once."
