Greetings Upper School Community:
Here is a mid-September edition of “Articles of Interest,” blending MVS news with some recent national stories.
On Wednesday, 21 September, in honor of International Day of Peace, the MVS chapter of Amnesty International will show Jeremy Gilley’s presentation, One Day of Peace, from the 2011 TEDGlobal Conference.
For an interesting read on admissions and class recruitment, take a view from the perspective of a competitive New York City kindergarten.
For those among us fascinated by CSI and forensics, Frank Bender, famed “re-composer” of faces from skulls, died recently in Philadelphia. His obituary and career story makes for an interesting read.
Less we forget, in this age of iPads and tech tablets, here is a great article on the pleasures found in a good (actual) book.
And finally, a great article (with fitting graphics) making its way through the ‘blogosphere,’ “The 10 Commandments of Steve” presents a snap-shot (literally and figuratively) of Steve Jobs’ sage wisdom.
