As we say in our "marketing" pitch, SweetSearch2Day is a daily assortment of the best educational content online. Every single content feed has been thoroughly reviewed before we deemed it worthy of inclusion on the page. We intend to continually add to it over time.
We feature four different Photos of the Day: from National Geographic, Smithsonian, Astronomy Photos from NASA, and earth science photos from the Earth Science Institute. Today's photo from NatGeo is a group of cows standing over a lake, their reflections shining off the surface. What better way to begin a Friday morning blog post?
Our On This Day today covers the launch of 60 Minutes - for several decades, the most watched program on television. Interestingly, the genesis of our idea for Interview of the Day, a feature that highlights compelling historic interviews, was uncovering the Mike Wallace Interviews with 66 luminaries of the 1950s, on the University of Texas Web site.
Today's Interview of the Day captures two interviews at MIT with Jack Welch, the legendary chairman of General Electric during its heyday in the 1980s. I was a senior executive at my previous company when Welch published his book Winning. Full of practical advice applicable to anyone, it became the guide book by which we managed the company, with tremendous results. No matter who you are or what you do, you can learn a lot from Jack Welch.
