Starting Your Day In a Positive Way – A “First Light Facts” Sampler

First Light Facts

Several weeks ago, VIS introduced a new program – “First Light Facts: Starting Your Day In a Positive Way.” Four mornings a week, we email subscribers a quick read we intend to be entertaining and informative — often both – and always positive. The early results are in, and we’re happy to see that the program is being very well-received. Here is a sampler of topics we’ve visited so far…

Marie Curie’s scientific knowledge won her a Nobel Prize twice, but she died prematurely because of what she did NOT know…No, it’s not true that we use only ten percent of our brain power…The Rosetta Stone is famous, but what does it really tell us?…When Ruth was smashing home runs, there was another sports superstar named “Babe”…What does ‘deep-six’ really mean, and why does it matter?…What famous composer wrote his first opera at age 13?…How much do you know about nicknames?…How much do you know about the Lincoln-Douglas debates?…What Susan Ellis — the late, great pioneer in volunteerism — had to say about volunteering.

There’s more information at There’s a form there anyone can use, to start a free subscription. Let us help you (and your colleagues, family and friends) start your day in a positive way!
