– Eric Liu
“We’re all better off when we’re all  better off.”
In his book, The Gardens of Democracy: A New American Story of
Citizenship, the Economy, and the Role of Government, Eric Liu asks
us to think of government not as a machine that needs regular
service and repair, but as a garden to be nurtured. Successful gardens
follow natural rules but require goals, regular tending, and an
understanding of connected ecosystems. While he wants us to have
a bigger share of the harvest (we’re all better off when we’re all
better off), Liu also asks us to be more involved as citizen gardeners.
Liu, a former White House deputy domestic policy
advisor and a regular contributor to TIME.com and
TheAtlantic.com, also says:
• “Society becomes how we behave. Positive  behavior begets positive behavior.”
• “Government should be about the big what and the little how.”
• “Freedom is responsibility. Freedom costs a little freedom.”
Join us as Eric Liu makes his case. Sponsored by the First Unitarian Church of Omaha

UNMC, UNL make history by testing mini-robots in ‘space’

For more than 10 years, inventors at the University of Nebraska Medical Center and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln have spent countless hours building, testing, perfecting and patenting miniature surgical robots.

The robots were developed for National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) with the hope that flight surgeons can one day perform emergency surgery in space.

The next step called for testing the mini-robots in a simulated space environment. » Read more..
