Istanbul history repeats itself at Anfield 🙅‍♂️

You couldn’t escape the Istanbul references during the build-up to Liverpool v Milan in the Champions League this week. And the first half at Anfield has produced some exhilarating football, as well as the ghosts of 2005 coming back to make themselves known. Firstly, the home side have had to...

History Repeats Itself

"Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it." -Geroge Santayana. It's a quote that many of us have heard 1000 times; almost as many believe they know what it means. The idea that our world is a revolving door of the same events with different uniforms implies an assortment of things for our world. Some disregard this belief, opting for hope in utopianism; others embrace it, acknowledging the futility this idea presents and using it to their advantage. Still, there is a third option, where the individual breaks away and lives on his own terms. This man does not observe history as the failures of others; instead, as failures that he could become.

History repeats itself

George Santayana said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it,” while Winston Churchill wrote, “Those that fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”. Watching the footage of our retreat from Afghanistan brought back memories or our pullout of Vietnam. Both ended in the...

Hunters don't want wolf competition -- Ryan O'Leary

My whole life I have heard, “Hunters are the real conservationists.” But reintroduce a keystone predator such as the gray wolf to the ecosystem, and suddenly what many Wisconsin hunters really want becomes crystal clear. Apparently, many Wisconsin hunters want the north woods to be a giant game preserve where they can kill things for sport without any competition.

Venice Film Fest 2021 Review: History Repeats Itself to Devastating Effect in “Three Minutes – A Lengthening”

The first three minutes and 33 seconds of “Three Minutes – A Lengthening” are presented without comment, with only the whirring sound of celluloid being unspooled as accompaniment, leaving the eye to wander around the frame without guidance. The black-and-white images of a town aren’t particularly striking at first glance with people talking to one another and generally going about their daily lives, but without context, why something is of interest becomes as curious as what attracts your interest and not a second sooner than when that intrigue could fade, director Bianca Stigter provides that background to what you’re seeing — footage from 1938 shot by David Kurtz, a resident of Nasielsk, a small town in Poland where the predominantly Jewish community were threatened to be wiped off the map during the impending Nazi Occupation.

History repeats itself

(Though I am) retired from teaching in secondary education many years ago, my personal interest in history continues today. Thomas Jefferson is quoted as saying, “I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the Government from wasting the labors of the people, under the pretense of taking care of them.”

Does History Repeat Itself?

The Human Predisposition to self-inflict the Recurrent Communal Guiding principles thru the Notion of the Collective Conscience. History is the story of living people and their immediate environment. That is what every soul leaves behind once farewells our limited realm. That is what it implies in the literal sense and what should be!

- History repeats itself

Roughly 90 years ago, soon after being named chancellor of Nazi Germany, Adolf Hitler began his purge of opponents, namely Jews, by tracking their monetary assets at all German banks. It was the beginning of a process that led to the murder of more than 6-million Jews, among millions of...

Rayburn Letter to the Editor 9/3/21

We have had many articles about the history of our towns and churches. Arcadia is celebrating 150 years as a town this coming Labor Day weekend!. As a child, I hated the subject of history. Memorizing dates. So Columbus sailed the ocean blue and discovered American in 1492. Who cares? Big whoop! Thrilled me none whatsoever! And the history of wars fought, lives lost, peace occasionally! Enough!

2022 Subaru BRZ First Drive: History Repeats Itself

Cast your mind back to 2013 or thereabouts, when Subaru's rear-drive BRZ and its cousin, the Toyota 86—then known as the Scion FR-S—were new. Although nearly identical, the rear-drive sports cars had different personalities: The FR-S was more playful while the BRZ was more shy about shaking its tail feathers. Fast-forward to 2022, and as Yogi Berra once said, it's déjà vu all over again. The Toyota is a slide-happy goofball, and the new 2022 Subaru BRZ is even more serious about getting through the curves as quickly as possible—i.e., with fewer speed-robbing slides.
