July 4th Bike & Hike in Freedom Park, July 4

Date: July 04, 2017

Time: 9:30 am

Please join us as we celebrate the 4th of July with our first annual Freedom Park Bike & Hike event. This event is open to the public. Kids, dogs and adults of all ages are welcome to participate. Here’s what we have planned:

  • This will be a fun and healthy way to celebrate the 4th of July with family and friends (low key alternative to the Peachtree Road Race)
  • This is not a race or competition. The idea is to explore and enjoy the natural beauty and historical significance of Atlanta’s largest public park.
  • Everyone will meet at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library (near the picnic tables)
  • You will be able to bike or walk (see route maps below)
  • We are looking into the possibility of holding a picnic/party at the Carter Center at noon. If not, we will plan some after parties at nearby restaurants.

Venue

Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum
441 Freedom Parkway Northeast
Atlanta, GA 30307

Travel

Vacation Locations: Knowledge is Fun Too!

Most children (and adults, too) will either roll their eyes or sigh when, while speaking about vacation locations, the word “learning” just happens to be mentioned. Yes, it is a fact that school trips take all of us during our younger years to everything from museums to libraries to historic locations in order to teach us things we should know. But when thinking about your vacation, you should know that by considering journeying to a particular place that just happens to register high on the historical or educational meter, you could have even more fun.

Is Social Media Still Growing?

It was in 1999, Bill Gates wrote a book titled, “Business @ the Speed of Thought.” Within these pages, the man who became the computer world’s wizard made massively bold predictions that, at the time, sounded ridiculous and outrageous to those who read them. But when you look at how the social media realm has grown over the past few decades, it is important to take note that not only did his predictions from 1999 come true, but they are also responsible for seeing social media continue to grow by leaps and bounds to this day.

Oscar Isaac and Christian Bale Co-Star in WWI Docudrama

It\’s Eastern Turkey in 1914, which is where we find druggist Mikael Boghosian (Oscar Isaac) plying his trade in his half-Armenian/half-Turkish village where Christians and Muslims get along swell. The ambitious, young apothecary would really rather be a doctor, so he strategically courts a neighbor (Angela Sarafyan) from a relatively-wealthy family just for the dowry.
