Tue Jul 5thTuesday Live & Coffee MorningsTuesday Live - Vanuatu, a maelstrom of experiences
Alan Horne lived with his wife Marion in Vanuatu, an archipelago of about 83 volcanic islands in the Pacific Ocean, for just over 2 years. Vanuatu is recorded by the United Nations as the world's most dangerous country experiencing earthquakes, storms, floods, droughts and sea level rises. Before independence in 1980, Vanuatu was an Anglo-French colony known as the New Hebrides - the name coined by Captain Cook, who explored the archipelago in 1774. Vanuatu is widely recognised for the Price Philip Tribe, the origin of bungee jumping, a premier destinations for scuba divers, the wreck of the US ocean liner and converted troop carrier SS President Coolidge, Million $ point and of course a frequent pointless answer on the TV game show Pointless. Vanuatu's last recorded cannibal killing was as recent as 1969, a practice which is now illegal! Alan, with possible interventions from Marion, will present his experience of living and working in this fascinating country

Tue Sep 6thTuesday Live & Coffee MorningsTuesday Live - The Victorian Superhighway.
Mention the global information super-highway, and we automatically think of the internet. But actually, messages were already being sent back and forth around the world, by wire, as long ago as the Victorian era, thanks to Samuel Morse’s electric telegraph, and the vast network of undersea cables laid down by the British, to connect our far-flung colonies. It was called, appropriately, the ‘All Red Line’ (red being the cartographers’ code for the British Empire).
In this talk, Mario Greening from Cardiff u3a will present a brief history of communications technology, which culminated in the planning, financing, and construction of the cable network by British entrepreneurs and engineers. He’ll also reveal the little-known story of Room 40 at the Admiralty during WW1, where code-breakers intercepted messages sent by the Germans on their cable network, while protecting the security of our own.
Just in case you are wondering, the approach is non-technical!!
This will be a Hybrid meeting so you can watch on Zoom if you prefer.
