SPEAKER AT OUR NEXT MEETING

Mark Rector is a Communications Professor from Humber College. His topic is "Oh Canada! Our Home and Inventive Land"

We will learn about all of the great innovations and inventiveness in this great and vast land of ours. From the compound steam engine and gasoline of the Industrial Revolution, to the telephone and light bulb (yes, the light bulb) of the Victorian era, to the Canadarm and BlackBerry of today.

The stories of Bell Canada, Northern Telecom, the Robertson screw company, SPAR Aerospace, Easy-Off and the invention of hockey! They are all here, as are 150 more great stories, in a light, easy to read, pick up and put down format of short vignettes and some longer, detailed histories of some of the biggest names in Canadian history.

PERSONAL VIGNETTE: Also in this meeting, Ray Baker will be delivering his personal vignette.

We can make COVID-19 the last pandemic - a Bill Gates TED Talk

Building a pandemic-free future won't be easy, but Bill Gates believes that we have the tools and strategies to make it possible -- now we just have to fund them. In this forward-looking talk, he proposes a multi-specialty Global Epidemic Response and Mobilization (GERM) team that would detect potential outbreaks and stop them from becoming pandemics. By investing in disease monitoring, research and development as well as improved health systems, Gates believes we can "create a world where everyone has a chance to live a healthy and productive life -- a life free from the fear of the next COVID-19."

DAVE BECHTEL VIGNETTE: Also in our May meeting, Dave Bechtel shared his life story with the membership.
