“LAS VEGAS — Elvis Presley once told Deana Martin, “They call me the King of Rock and Roll, but your dad is the King of Cool.”
From his solo career to his appearances with the Rat Pack and his infamous Celebrity Roasts, Dean Martin made the Las Vegas stage his home. Known for his smooth and effortless style, Martin has become a timeless Las Vegas icon. Dean Martin would have turned 100 on June 7. We celebrate the “King of Cool” with this tribute featuring photos and video from the Las Vegas News Bureau archives. In addition, the News Bureau has produced an exhibition in the Las Vegas Convention Center featuring exclusive photographs from its archives and rare Las Vegas memorabilia.”

I popped out in the garden at lunch time, armed with my little Canon Ixus, and found it was all go on the bee front. The header flower, Helianthus Capenoch Star was proving very popular. I’d only bought it the other day, to go in the back of the flower bed that I said was ‘officially full’, and it is still in its pot, waiting for a slightly cooler moment to plant it out. In the meantime, it is being much visited. But then that goes for most of the other flowers: zinnias, cosmos, liatris, doronicum, echinacea, rudbeckia, and the self-sown purple toadflax. So many happy buzzing souls.
And then there was also the hoverfly:
A new start-up is making vegan food for dogs and lab-grown mouse meat for cats. It wants to change the way all pets eat.
Whatever your discipline, you should also be teaching students how to understand, assess, evaluate, and apply information.
