    Uruguay: "La solidaridad no se agracede, se retribuye."

    Samora Machel, FRELIMO leader, First President of Mozambique: "International solidarity is not an act of charity. It is an act between allies fighting on different terrains toward the same objective. The foremost of these objectives is to aid the development of humanity to the highest level possible"

    Thanks to peasants, farm workers, fisher folks, bakers, & kitchen staff for our food & drinks; factory & office workers for the things & services we need; women who are daily martyrs whose work at home is not fully appreciated; activists who act as the conscience of society, reminding officials they occupy positions of trust to serve the people; social environmentalists who fight for the integrity of all life forms; & those who gave up their lives for justice so that we may have a better life now & in the future.

    Things That Are Obsolete or Becoming Obsolete

    1. Note that there are factors that make things obsolete including profit orientation (things are made to be disposable and obsolete in order to boost sales of new items), level of income, and sentimentality to cling on to old things.
    2. Blackboards. Whiteboards replace blackboards. LCD projectors replace overhead projectors.
    3. Vinyl records, cassette tapes, boom box, Betamax tapes, VHS, CDs, and DVDs. More and more music and movies are online and can be downloaded to flash drives.
    4. Books, magazines, newspapers, and other hard-copy reading materials. Electronic versions are replacing them. Some old-fashioned people like me still prefer hard-copy books, though. With online news and Wikileaks, newspapers lose the monopoly of giving news, although paradoxically there are few but powerful news groups that still control both hard-copy and online news that we read.
    5. Bulbs, both incandescent and fluorescent, will be replaced by energy-saving bulbs. However, all bulbs still have to be made mercury-free.
    6. Calendars on the Wall. Email accounts, cellphones, computers, television sets and other electronic gadgets have internal calendars. Digital calendars can be customized and downloaded online, if needed.
    7. Camera using films. Cameras are now digital.
    8. Stand-alone digital Cameras will be obsolete as cellphones, computers & i-Pads have built-in digital cameras.
    9. CDs are replaced by flash drive with USB ports.
    10. Classrooms which are exclusively face-to-face only will be replaced by hybrid or purely online classes. There will be more and more online classes and degrees.
    11. CDs will be obsolete as most music are now available online for purchase, free radio streaming, and downloding.
    12. Dictionaries and Encylopedias. More and more dictionaries and encyclopedias are now available online.
    13. Maps. Global Positioning System (GPS) units replace maps. Some cellphones have GPS.
    14. Paper will be used less and less. More and more documents will be digital and electronically transferred, read, edited, and submitted.
    15. Phone Books. Phone numbers can be found online.
    16. Regular mail for interpersonal correspondence and billing. The younger generation uses email and automatic online payments.
    17. Watches. Cellphones, computers, cars, microwave ovens and many items have built-in clocks.
    18. Telephones are becoming obsolete. We can now talk, chat, and have videochat on Facebook, Google, Skype, and Yahoo.
    19. What else? Please send in your entries to add to this list. Thank you!
