Tidbits and Pieces- The Year 2006

In General

The video-sharing website, YouTube, is purchased by Google. The purchase amount $1.65 billion through a stock purchase; Western Union discontinues its telegram service;   Wikipedia (English) publishes its one-millionth article, Jordanhill railway station.

Tech

The one billionth song is purchased from Apple iTunes; the New Horizons probe mission to Pluto is launched in 2006 by NASA from Cape Canaveral, FL. The mission visited Jupiter while on its way to Pluto and gathered information about the planet and its moons. The probe made its way to Pluto in 2015; Pluto is downgraded from a Planet to a dwarf planet by The International Astronomical Union.

Weather

A winter storm hits the Northeast dumping 1 to 2 feet of snow from Washington DC to Boston. The storm also blanketed NYC with 26.9 inches of snow; heatwaves – Australia 45 degrees Celsius (113 degrees Fahrenheit), California 115 degrees Fahrenheit, lasting 2 weeks; during Easter week, a tornado outbreak in the Midwest affecting Iowa, Indiana, Missouri and other US states; a 6.6 magnitude earthquake at sea rumbles the US state of Hawaii.

Music and Culture

40th Country Music Television (CMT) awards go to Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, and Kenny Chesney; 60th Tony Awards go to the Jersey Boys and The History Boys; the 48th Grammy Awards go to Boulevard Of Broken Dreams and John Legend.

Something Extra

Tuesday, Nov. 21st is World Television Day, which this special day was proclaimed by the United Nations in 1996. The reason is to bring attention to the usefulness of television and of its coverage of events of interest.

Television is a means of communication with the purpose of generating openness and transparency of local and global issues. Television also offers a mass medium for entertainment, news, sports, politics, advertising and more.

Drunk apostrophes found the missing dot

The dotted line, oh so grateful

Letters in alphabet soup come together

Blank scrabble tiles on sale

Paper dolls are totally bumfuzzled

 Their selfies have no character

The man in the moon ordered fries

Fleets of drones blanket the sky

Don’t use search engines to find your life

You may find yourself in fake news

Don’t weave a tale with conspicuous styling

  Look in the mirror you’ll recognize the face

Life’s not tied with a bow but it’s still a gift

Make the journey count not the aha moment

  1. Loved the throwback facts. I remember when Google bought YouTube. Has it been that long already!? Wow! And Wikipedia had one million articles already? That’s crazy – I can only imagine the views they get. No wonder they’re so persistent. lol.
    Awesome poem, as well. I’m also taking a look at BeeBe. I’ve heard of it, but I don’t know anything beyond just hearing about it. I’ll go take a look; thank you for sharing that. 🙂
    I wish you a peaceful thanksgiving. Sending hugs!

  2. Another excellent Tuesday Chatter and poem Eugenia. I think the line “Don’t use search engines to find your life ” should be printed on a T shirt 🙂

  3. Loved this article’s poem, Eugenia. Search engine lives/fake news/count the journey.

    Amazing to me how rapidly – and recently – tech devices and “virtual” reality have become the definition of the way in which we relate to one another. I remember seeing photos of the previous generation huddled around the radio – then reading about the excitement of a family thrilled to have JUST brought home a single color color TV for a shared family room. And in a blink, the family computer has been replaced by personal smart phones and the family TV has been replaced by Netflicks.

    Have to wonder how many Thanksgiving tables will have little face to face communication this Thursday due to competition from smart phones and televised sports — and which year will be your retrospective of the death of those “Norman Rockwell” celebrations.

    Happy Thanksgiving – hope it lasts another decade, at least.

    • You’re spot on with your comment, Madelyn. It seems the virtual world is now taking over a once a year family event. There are good people out there with good family values, which is so important for the human race and its survival. Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂
