Photography in its infancy made its way to Philadelphia in 1839, literally weeks after Louis Daguerre invented the technique that carries his name.  Lampmaker Robert Cornelius was interested and took what is now recognized as the first “selfie.”  Frederick Gutekunst opened a studio where people flocked to have their picture taken.  Mathew Carey Lea helped photography make giant strides forward through his knowledge of photochemistry and then invented an entirely new branch of chemistry almost through serendipity.  Coleman Sellers II was a nationally renowned mechanical engineer for whom photography was a hobby, yet he managed to produce what is now acknowledged as the first motion picture.  All four of these photography pioneers are buried at Laurel Hill Cemetery or West Laurel Hill Cemetery.

Last week's partial lunar eclipse attracted millions of people to gaze at our nearest celestial neighbor. One of them, Daniel Sax, has designs on more than just staring at the moon. He intends to mine the crusty orb for water and oxygen, essentials that future planetary travelers will need to sustain them on lunar bases and fuel their voyages to Mars and beyond. Daniel is the co-founder of Toronto-based Canadian Space Mining Corporation, launched in August 2020. He aims to propel Canada to the forefront of the anticipated demand for space-based supply chains and utilities, and he's drawing a lot of interest from prospective investors and government officials. Host and award-winning journalist Dean Rotbart says what makes Daniel's story so compelling — and relevant to all entrepreneurs — is that he not only dreams big, he is crafting a pioneering business to turn his dreams into a reality.

Three senior Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints — President M. Russell Ballard, Elder Jeffrey R. Holland and Elder Quentin L. Cook — traveled to England and Scotland in October 2021 to address both Church members and missionaries. The trip marked a “coming home” for the trio of Church leaders as each had served missions in the British Isles. President Ballard first arrived in Great Britain as a young missionary in 1948, just three years after the end of World War II. Elder Cook arrived in England in September 1960, followed by Elder Holland in October of the same year; they would serve together as companions in summer 1962. Sister Patricia Holland and Sister Mary Cook accompanied their husbands on the trip. This episode of the Church News podcast features highlights of this historic moment in time, shared by the leaders' own words, reflecting on how the area, people and foundational spiritual experiences shaped their lives of gospel service. The Church News Podcast is a weekly podcast that invites listeners to make a journey of connection with members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints across the globe. Host Sarah Jane Weaver, reporter and editor for The Church News for a quarter-century, shares a unique view of the stories, events, and most important people who form this international faith. With each episode, listeners are asked to embark on a journey to learn from one another and ponder, “What do I know now?” because of the experience. Produced by KellieAnn Halvorsen.

Minarets on the Horizon: Muslim Pioneers in Canada (Mawenzi House 2021) by Murray Hogben is an incredible archive of some of the early Muslim settlers in Canada. The book is a collection of wonderful oral histories of the early Muslims and their descendants from the east to the west coast of Canada. Be they the settlers from Syria/Lebanon or Punjabi men who worked in timber mills of British Columbia, to those who migrated later in the 20th century as a result of the changes to the Canadian immigration law, such as South Asian Muslims, Hogben captures the trials and tribulations of migration, and the challenges of adapting religious and cultural practices as minorities in a new nation state. Central are the voices of Muslim women, such as Hilwie Hamdon, who led the way to building the first mosque in Canada, the al-Rashid masjid, in Edmonton, while stories of inter-religious friendships abound through the early formation of the Muslim communities across Canada. This is an important book that adds deep texture to our understanding of the history of Islam in Canada and will be of interest to anyone who thinks and writes about Muslims in Canada and in the global west, generally.

God sovereignly determines the boundaries of nations, as well as their lifespan. Throughout history, the average lifespan of national empires has been approximately 250 years. From the Assyrian Empire to the Ottoman Empire, each appears to follow the same trend: 1) The Age of Pioneers, 2) The Age of Conquests, 3) The Age of Commerce, 4) The Age of Affluence, 5) The Age of Intellect, and 6) The Age of Decadence & Decay. This final stage is always marked by a departure from religion, frivolous materialism, and a massive influx of immigration and the welfare state. America has officially reached the 250 year mark and seemingly checks all the boxes of the Age of Decadence & Decay. So is America's time up? Is it too late to repent? And most importantly, what effect will America's fate have on the Church of Jesus Christ?

Back in 1994, Steve Jobs introduced a concept at an Apple conference: that the design of their products should begin at the desired Customer Experience and work backward from there.  Not long after that, Joe Pine co-authored a book called The Experience Economy, that changed the way at looked at the future of business.  In 2002, I began my global Customer Experience consultancy, Beyond Philosophy, a term a bandied about long before anyone even knew what it was. By 2005, I had undertaken research to determine the 20 emotions that drive or destroy value, to prove that incorporating customer emotions into experiences provides an ROI.  Meanwhile, Lewis Carbone was championing Customer Experience and founding his consultancy and philosophy in ExpereinceEngineering™. Now, 2021, Customer Experience as we know it is dying.  That's the bad news. The good news is that the concepts behind it live on and are developing into a new variant: Customer Science.  In this episode, Pine, Carbone, and I discuss whether Customer Experience is dying and the future of experiences from our point of view.  Key Ideas to Improve your Customer Experience It is essential to explain that none of us think that putting the customer at the center of your experience at an organization is an idea that will never die. However, we all think that the original concept of Customer Experience from over 25 years ago has changed and morphed into new areas. What differentiated you at the turn of the 21st century and what does it today are two very different things. Perhaps, more importantly, we discuss what Customer Experience needs to be in the future and what Customer Experience champions can do to ensure that it happens.  Here are a few key moments in our LinkedIn live discussion: 05:34   Colin explains why he thinks CX is dying as we know it and Pine weighs in, too. 13:56     Carbone explains why he thinks it is impossible for CX to die.     25:05     Colin explains what he thinks the future of CX will be, Customer Science.    40:47.    Pine shares what he thinks the future of CX will be, which is focusing on providing value to customers.     42:42     Carbone explains what happened with Capital One as they moved from fixing what was broken to transformative experience that changed the way they do business. 46:29.   Pine explains how he thinks experiences can contribute to happiness, and how it isn't about having more things to buy.  49:18    Carbone explains how CX of the future can augment the voice of the customer with the mind of the customer.   Please tell us how we are doing!

Professor Utarini is head of the Eliminate Dengue Project at the UGM Faculty of Medicine, funded by the Tahija Foundation and run in collaboration with the World Mosquito Program at Monash University. In 2020, the team published the results of 10-year study, including a 3-year randomised controlled trial, examining the effectiveness of introducing Wolbachia bacteria into Aedes aegypti mosquitoes to reduce their capacity to transmit dengue. The findings of the research were described by the World Health Organisation as epochal and a breakthrough in the fight to eliminate dengue and potentially other mosquito-borne viruses. This is particularly significant given that dengue affects almost 400 million people around the world annually and is described by WHO as one of the 10 greatest threats to world health. In Indonesia each year, an estimated 7 million people are infected. In Talking Indonesia this week, Dr Jemma Purdey talks to Professor Utarini about how she and her team in Yogyakarta conducted their study and what they discovered. Does this bring us a step closer to eliminating dengue? In Talking Indonesia this week, Dr Jemma Purdey talks to Professor Adi Utarini, Professor in Public Health and Project Leader of Eliminate Dengue Project Yogyakarta, Faculty of Medicine, Universitas Gadjah Mada.

The Pioneers Dick Kirsche and Chris LammersRichard (Dick) KirscheDick is a retired Electrical Engineer after more than 60 years in the profession.  That career provided him with opportunities to work with several emerging technologies.Dick graduated from Lehigh University in 1960 with a degree in electrical engineering.  He began his career at ITT Laboratories working on radar systems and satellite earth station terminals that provided the ground communication link for the early communication satellites.  (Telstar, Relay, Syncom, etc.)Dick transitioned to a position at RCA Astro-electronics after an IT&T reduction in force.  Astro was designing and building several early satellite systems.  Dick's concentration was the design and qualification for launch of the command receivers that supported ground control commands.  He continued in the aerospace industry until the mid-1960's when he joined a startup company designing custom power supplies and a UHF television exciter for a startup transmitter manufacturer. (Townsend Associates)  Dick joined Townsend to head up their transmitter design and production engineering.  Townsend was acquired by Ampex Corporation which expanded their presence in the Broadcast Industry.  When Ampex suffered some financial setbacks related to their music recording business.  The Broadcast transmitter division was shuttered to improve their bottom line.  In 1972 Dick was part of a group from the closing Ampex transmitter operation that started Spectrum Cable, a company that was seeking cable system franchises in the Western Massachusetts area.  Spectrum was awarded franchises in 3 communities in the suburbs of Springfield, MA.  At that time Cable television was, essentially, a reception service which made operation in city TV markets like Springfield challenging.  Spectrum's offering to that market was superior reception in addition to 2 channels from the Boston, MA market that provided coverage of major hockey and basketball teams.  Spectrum employed a unique network of cylindrical steel towers, with headend electronics at the top and distant signals shared by microwave.  Shortly after Spectrum began operation Home Box Office was added via regional microwave.   Spectrum was acquired by Colony Communications in 1975.  Spectrum's cable systems were combined with 4 cable franchises in the same region operated by Colony.  Dick was hired to head up engineering for that group of cable franchises.  Over time, Dick's responsibilities expanded to head of engineering for all of Colony's cable and MDS microwave systems.  Cable system technology was advancing rapidly during that period.  Channels, received from satellites became common.  Dick worked with the Colony engineering team to install the 2nd 10-meter dia. earth station in the Northeast.  Expansion of cable service channels, from satellite, sparked a rapid growth in public interest in cable TV service.  Colony aggressively supported that expansion of service offerings on their cable systems.  Dick also supported the franchise acquisition team seeking additional cable television communities for Colony.  Dick left Colony at the end of 1981, joining Greater Media Cable at the start of 1982 as Vice President of Engineering.  Greater Media had a strong presence in New England which was expanded through franchising and acquisitions.  That expansion also included one-fourth of the City of Philadelphia and a complex of systems located in the suburbs of Detroit, MI.  Cable television technology was advancing rapidly during that period as operators continued to improve their service offerings and reliability.   During his employment with Greater Media, that operator became a founding member of CableLabs, deployed a 60 channel AML microwave system for the large Worcester complex of towns, began offering DOCSIS data over cable service, began using fiber optic cable for video distribution, and expanded their local video origination service to a full-time live news service.  Dick was active on SCTE, CableLabs, and NCTA Industry committees for Greater Media.  The Greater Media cable operations were sold in 1999.  In 2000 Dick joined RCN, a system operator that competed in the Cable space by building their own facilities in parallel with the incumbent cable television provider, as Director of Video technology.  RCN deployed Video on Demand technology and developed a unique set-top box technology designed to give RCN a competitive advantage in the Chicago cable market.   Dick joined Comcast Cable as a Director in 2005.  Initially, he was part of the team creating a specification for a set-top box design unique to Comcast.  His work continued as part of a small engineering team testing and certifying set-top boxes for deployment to subscribers by Comcast.  His duties also expanded to supporting Comcast's work to improve the energy efficiency of Comcast devices in subscriber's homes.  This included active participation in the DOE's Energy Star program and Cable industry initiatives to address government energy efficiency requirements.  Mr. Kirsche left Comcast in 2010 and opened Kirsche Consulting LLC.  Kirsche Consulting supported Cable Operators' set-top and energy efficiency reporting efforts.  That work included considerable recordkeeping and analysis work for Comcast which led to significant energy savings for Comcast subscribers.Dick officially retired in 2018 but continues to support SCTE standards work as a volunteer.   Christopher J Lammers, COO Emeritus and Senior Executive Advisor, CableLabs® Chris is currently coo emeritus and senior executive advisor for CableLabs leading special projects and initiatives, including the integration of SCTE as a key part of CableLabs, together with supporting relationships across industry associations including ACA Connects, The Cable Center, CCSA, the Emma Bowen Foundation, NCTA, NCTC and WICT. Prior to this, Chris served as senior vice president and chief operating officer at CableLabs directing accounting and finance, IT, facilities and membership development. He remains committed to relationships with mid-sized and smaller MSOs, as well as with international cable operators in Asia, Europe and Latin America, key communities he built at CableLabs. Chris currently serves as a member of the board of directors of The Cable Center and the Emma Bowen Foundation and is actively involved in committees and/or support for several national and international industry trade associations.  He is a member of the Cable TV Pioneers (Class of 2021). Prior to joining CableLabs in 1997, Chris was president and CEO of Western Communications, a mid-sized multiple system operator with cable systems located in the Western United States. Before that, Chris was a partner with the San Francisco law firm of Cooper, White & Cooper. Chris received a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Chicago School of Law and a Bachelor of Arts degree with distinction from Stanford University.AcknowledgmentsA special thank you to Benjamin Monlezun for the use of his original song, Downpoor.The views expressed in this episode are solely those of the podcast host and guests and do not necessarily represent the position, strategy, or opinions of CableLabs.

Even if you don't play golf, there's a surprising amount to learn from pro golfers who broke with tradition to "swing their own swing." That's what Steve Bullock learned when he analyzed tons of data for his book Out of the Box Golf. Think: Moneyball for the 9-iron crowd. For instance, even holding a club the "traditional" way puts players at a huge disadvantage. Yet even when golfers find clear advantages through technology or alternate practices, most players ignore them (often for decades!) and fall behind their peers. "Humans tend toward conformity," he explains. It's not hard to see how this applies to the business world as well. Whitney and Steve discuss the extraordinary ways that experimenting with risk can pay off, in your professional life, and on the fairway. And Steve stresses that if you don't have the pioneer's stomach for risk, make certain that you're a fast follower when innovation comes knocking.
