Quote of the Day
No planet is more earth-like than Earth itself, so if life really does pop up readily in earth-like conditions, then surely it should have arisen many times right here on our home planet? And how do we know it didn't? The truth is, nobody has looked.
After completing a Delaware State education, they were afforded opportunities beyond anything they might have imagined - and they opened doors for themselves that surely would have remained closed if they only had a high school education.
Michael N. Castle
My stuff always starts with interviews. I start interviewing people, and then slowly but surely, a movie insinuates itself.

From my music training, I knew that, some Spanish rhythms apart, 5/4 is a time signature used only in the modern era. Holst's Mars from the Planets is 5/4.

In the time we have it is surely our duty to do all the good we can to all the people we can in all the ways we can.
