In the news: A Christian Science perspective
There are literally hundreds if not thousands of articles on aging gracefully. In Every Man a King, Orison Swett Marden muses, ‘Better than the art of growing old gracefully is the secret of not growing old at all.” Although Marden’s 1906 “secret” focused on how mind and thought can influence one’s longevity, today’s headlines portray the “secret” as a pill which purports to extend the normal human age span an additional forty years. (Can people really die of old age?) Not to be outdone, demographer Aubrey deGrey published in the Annals of New York Academy of Science, that “[those] born toward the end of the twenty-first century may well have a life expectancy exceeding 5,000 years.”

"Casablanca”, la famosa película protagonizada por Humphrey Bogart e Ingrid Bergman en 1942, que narra un drama romántico en la ciudad marroquí de Casablanca, no se rodó en esa ciudad.
Muchos preguntaron: "¿Dónde está el Café de Rick?”. "¿Dónde tocaba Sam el piano?”.
Todo el mundo cree que se filmó en Marruecos, tanto es así, que se llenaba de turistas que querían visitar el Bar de Rick, que no existía. La película fue filmada íntegramente en Hollywood.

While researching her New York Times bestselling book “The Gratitude Diaries,” author Janice Kaplan came up with what she described during a recent talk in San Francisco as her “big plan” for maintaining an attitude of gratitude as a way to get rid of her next migraine headache.
“Well, there was sort of a problem,” said the former Parade Editor-In-Chief, “which is that I never got another migraine headache while I was writing the book.”
Apparently gratitude works in both preventative and curative ways.

True education is more than mere accumulation of knowledge to pass examinations and find well-paid employment. Rather it is about bringing out the spiritual goodness within each of us -- the intelligence, understanding, perception that has been placed within us by our divine Creator.
“All your children will have God for their teacher” (Bible).

The most famous, interesting, and powerful woman in America
In 1907, a New York newspaperman was sent, with other reporters, to dig up sensational stories about a woman in Concord, New Hampshire. That year, a popular magazine had described her as, “The most famous, interesting and powerful woman in America, if not in the world, today.”
It was said that these newsmen were a belligerent bunch of old-timers looking for a scandal. After staying in Concord for some time, they were surprised at the loving treatment they received from the woman’s workers and friends. They wanted to hold the woman up to scorn and ridicule.

Home is a power
It was one of those moments when you recall where you were as the news broke.
Everyone's worst nightmare was being realized as a catastrophic accident in a nuclear reactor launched a plume of highly radioactive fallout. The fire that raged at the Chernobyl power plant for four days released 400 times as much radiation as the bomb dropped on Hiroshima. And it paid no heed to national boundaries as it drifted across the Soviet Union and over large parts of Europe.
