RSA's Animate videos -- in which a talented illustrator draws images as as a speaker presents a topic -- are incredible. In this one, "Matthew Taylor explores the meaning of 21st century enlightenment, how the idea might help us meet the challenges we face today, and the role that can be played by organisations such as the RSA."
Take a moment or three to enjoy!

Coast Guard Celebrates 220th AnniversaryAugust 04, 2010U.S. Coast Guard-->
WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Coast Guard celebrates 220 years of service to America today.From its genesis as the Revenue Marine, the Coast Guard has evolved to become the world’s premier multi-mission, maritime service, conducting operations around the globe to execute its 11 missions.
“Coast Guardsmen are agile, adaptable and multi-missioned,” said Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Robert J. Papp Jr. “Born as revenue cuttermen, lighthouse keepers, steamboat inspectors and surfmen, we have expanded to meet the maritime needs of our nation. As Coast Guard men and women, we share a bond of pride in our rich heritage and a common purpose to uphold our honorable traditions.”
Semper Paratus! I'm proud to have served and never floated. Imagine that!
