"The Definition of Love" by Andrew Marvell (poetry reading)
"L'Amour et Psyche, enfants", by William Bouguereau (1825-1905) "Two Lovers", 1906, by Marcus Stone (1840-1921) Two Lovers 1906, MY Love is of a birth as rare As 'tis, for object, strange and high ; It was begotten by Despair, Upon Impossibility.

And yet I quickly might arrive Where my extended soul is fixed ; But Fate does iron wedges drive, And alwa
"my father moved through dooms of love" by E E Cummings (poetry reading)
Cummings wrote this poem after his father was killed when his car was hit by a train at a crossing in 1926. The picture is just an illustration for atmosphere, not connected with the incident or even from the right period in history.

"Sonnet 147 - My love is as a fever.." by William Shakespeare (poetry reading)
A frightening Halloween poem from Bill the Bard. It calls to mind a situation that is all-too real. It is perhaps the most frightening thing of all - the discovery that you have been deceived, that your beloved never loved you. While you were at work labouring to provide a good life for your loved ones, your wife was amusing herself with her back-door man: the local, handsome ne'e-do-well who never did an honest day's work in his life. Now you must continue to work hard to support them bot

Planting the seeds of success in the desert: Lipton's tea factory in Dubai
For many people, tea manufacturing conjures up images of tea pickers in Asia or Africa, with tea leaves being plucked at plantations and brought to a nearby factory for processing. Unilever's decision to build a tea factory in the desert of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates is therefore not what one would expect to see, especially as it involves a major multinational company.

Authors@Google: Kevin Kelly
What Technology Wants Kevin Kelly will be speaking about his latest book, "What Technology Wants." This provocative book introduces a brand-new view of technology.
