UPenn Webinar – ‘Mickey’s Got Measles’

Poor Mickey

Today, I attended the webinar, Mickey’s Got Measles, through the Live Faculty Lecture Series offered at the University of Pennsylvania. Today’s lecture focussed on the epidemiology of Measles, Herd Immunity, and Trends in Immunization was presented by Alison Buttenheim. Given the recent outbreak of Measles that puts 2015 well ahead of year-to-date infection numbers, it was very timely and an excellent lecture. If you have 50 minutes, I highly recommend that you check it out here.

Is there new hope for ‘A New Hope’?

ImageDisney bought the rights to the Star Wars franchise from Lucasarts today for $4B. For old Star Wars fans like me, this poses two immediate questions:

#1 Is Disney going to make rubbish movies and destroy the series?

and

#2 Does this mean that finally someone is in a position to remaster and release the ORIGINAL version of Star Wars, A New Hope?

 

The answers:

#1  Too Late. George already did that with 3 1/2 crummy episodes

#2 Who knows. I can only keep my fingers crossed – a good friend of mine consulted his magic 8 ball though and he said the outlook was grim.
