Happy Wednesday UP blog readers! We took a great end of summer vacation last week but are back with lots of UP alumni news today! This past week:
UP 08 speaker Craig Kielburger took to The Huffington Post’s Canadian website to discuss the importance of long term action over one time aid in solving the problems of East Africa.
Blogs buzzed this week as it was announced that UP 09 speaker and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson is joining with Seth MacFarlane to produce a new version of Carl Sagan’s popular mini-series “Cosmos.” MacFarlane might be more easily recognized as the man behind the hit Fox television series, “Family Guy.”
Meanwhile The Independent spent time examining the question, “Is David Eagleman the cleverest man in America?”
UP 09 speaker Robert Ballard, best known for his discovery of the wreck of the RMS Titanic, will be returning to the site of the shipwreck to photograph the ship’s stern for a new attraction dedicated to the Titanic in Belfast.
And, as everyone wraps up the summer travel season, UP 10 speaker David Pogue shares, “Five (and Then Some) Tech Tips For Travel.”
Have a great rest of the week!
