My stepfather's uncle died recently. I'd never met him, but do know two of his sons well, and he was like a father to my stepfather. Reading his obit he seems like the type of guy that an 19 year old activist would love to have a cup of fairtrade coffee with :-D.

Are there people like this still? His son, Fred, could be one of them. But at the same time, can you find this level of community service, activism and empathy in someone these days?

(Actually, Fred is one of them. He *rocks*.)

Radio One has a sense of humor:

Why don't estate agents (real estate agents) look out the window in the morning?

Cause then they'd have nothing to do in the afternoon.

I am sitting on the middle of a conversation about how come they don't ever go to the bathroom on Star Wars. "R2D2 doesn't have a penis!". "maybe they use the force to put up the toilet seat?"

There is too much testosterone in this house sometimes.

Media Alert
Apple Announces Ultracompact USB Adapter Exchange Program

CUPERTINO, California-September 19, 2008-Apple today announced that
under certain conditions the new ultracompact Apple USB power
adapter's metal prongs can break off and remain in a power outlet,
creating the risk of electric shock.

percentage of the adapters sold, but no injuries have been reported.

decided to exchange every ultracompact power adapter for a new

"Imperative of Science and Technology in Accelerating African and Rwandan Development"

The lecture will be given in Kresge Auditorium, MIT's building W16. The street address is 48 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge. (View a map and get directions to MIT.)

Biography

His Excellency Paul Kagame (b. 1957) is the current president of the Republic of Rwanda. He is also the leader of the guerilla Rwandan Patriotic Front, whose invasion of Rwanda is cited as the primary reason that the Rwandan Genocide ended.

Born a Tutsi, President Kagame and his family moved to a Ugandan refugee camp to escape the violence of the 1959 revolt sparked by the Belgian military and carried out by the Hutu population. Political instability and tribal conflict fueled the ethnic persecution that would take place for decades.

President Kagame was among the first 27 men who, together with Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, launched a five-year liberation war in neighboring Uganda in 1980. He served as a senior officer in the Ugandan army between 1986 and 1990, during which time he received training as a distinguished ally in the US Army's Command and General Staff College. In October 1990, President Kagame returned to Rwanda after 30 years in exile to lead the Rwandan Patriotic Army in the struggle for the liberation of Rwanda.

On July 19, 1994, he was appointed vice president and minister for defense in the Government of National Unity. In 1998, he was elected chairman of the Rwandan Patriotic Front, a partner in the Government of National Unity. On April 17, 2000, His Excellency was unanimously elected president of the Republic of Rwanda by the Transitional National Assembly. He took the oath of office on April 22, 2000.

President Kagame has received a number of awards for his efforts to bring stability and peace to Rwanda, including the 2003 Global Leadership Award by the Young Presidents' Organization, the Andrew Young Medal, the Information and Communications Technologies Africa Award, the African National Achievement Award, the African Gender Award, and several honorary doctorates. He also received international recognition for outlawing the death penalty in Rwanda in 2007.

With initiatives in business, communications, energy, and gender equity, President Kagame is preparing his reunited country to take a role on the world stage. Read more at his website.

We want to get, for our friend, a gold necklace with her name in hieroglyphics (she recently traveled to Egypt and loved it) for her birthday.

Of course, I can google. However, personal recs are of course much more preferred. Anyone have any good shops or people they've done this for and had great experiences?

Poland was nice, but it is nice to be home. Long update later, if the wired kids ever sleep.
