#SXSW’s BURNING QUESTION: WHAT IS MEERKAT?
The other four letters making an impact this week besides NCAA would be #SXSW, the annual buzz-a-thon in Austin, TX, that brings together the latest fads, music, movies and technology. The buzz around Meerkat seems to be the biggest news to leave Texas borders this year. What is Meerkat you ask? It’s an app that allows you to instantly push live video to your friends and follow their lives in real-time. The implications astound on this one! Have to miss a class? Instead of borrowing a friend’s notes, you can just prop you phone up on your pillow and watch as your friend broadcasts the class live through their phone! Not that we condone that! Their tussle with Twitter brought them to the forefront, and has now introduced this remarkable idea to the general public.
THAT NEW BOOK SMELL…NEW HOLDINGS AT FALVEY
According to the publishers at The University of Chicago, the recently published book En Guerre: French illustrators and World War I “explores the conflict through French graphic illustration of the period. The exhibition presents themes essential to a deeper understanding of the war in France: patriotism, propaganda, the soldier’s experience, as well as the mobilization of the home front as seen through fashion, humor, and children’s literature.”
Vive la France!

A QUOTE FROM POPE FRANCIS
“St. Joseph’s mission is certainly unique and unrepeatable, as Jesus is absolutely unique. However, in protecting Jesus, in teaching him how to grow in age, wisdom and grace, he is a model for every educator, and in particular for every father. … I ask for you the grace to be every closer to your children, allow them to grow, but be close, close! They need you, your presence, your closeness, your love. Be, for them, like St. Joseph: protectors of their growth in age, wisdom and grace. Guardians of their path, and educators: walk alongside them. And with this closeness, you will be true educators.”
— General audience on the Solemnity of St. Joseph, March 19, 2014
HAVE A GREAT DAY!
