Link’n’Blogs – 4.21.17 – STEAM-Rolled?


Related Content from And There Came A Day


I loved Lincoln Logs when I was a kid. Though I never entertained the idea that I would be a designer, engineer or architect, something about putting together these wooden and plastic pieces was simply simple fun. Connecting to ideas through the blogosphere seems similar to this pursuit, hence the title of this weekly post. Each Friday, I intend to post something interesting I’ve read out there on the internets. Hopefully others will find these posts as thought provoking as I have.

The push for STEAM and STEM is a good thing. Right? Well, according to this piece in the Atlantic Monthly, we should be a little careful, especially when we think about educating young women… Click the image, friends, and read on.

Good Friday and Holy Saturday (and all of Lent, actually) lead to one place: Easter Sunday and, even today on Good Friday, we are a resurrection people. Hey, even Times Square gets it! Take a look at the videos and praise God.

I am not a great student of history. I want to be a better one. I want to read more, study more, know more. I think this is very important for anyone who wants to be an educated person. It’s all the more important for people like, you know, presidents. So this Newsweek article is all the more disturbing… Be sure to click the link below and, if so interested, click on the video as well. As, Sam Cooke.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is released on digital home video today. One of the great thrills of a very thrilling movie was how nicely it tied into A New Hope, the movie many people simply know as Star Wars. How nicely did it dovetail? Take ten minutes for the video below and you’ll see just how seamlessly it all fits together. The Force was at work…
