Domingo faustino sarmiento 1874
Domingo Faustino Sarmiento, 1874

  • In his inaugural speech of the inter-oceanic telegraph cable that connected Argentina with Europe, (October 5, 1874), said that “the cable unites the whole world into one family and one neighbourhood”.

  • Thus he foresaw the present on-going planetary communications, and he anticipated the expression, "the global village” coined by Marshall McLuhan one hundred years later.

Thomas Stearns Eliot Thomas Stearns Eliot was born in Missouri, United States of America, on September 26, 1888. He died in London, Great Britain, on January 4, 1965.

  • With the publication of The Waste Land in 1922, now considered by many to be the single most influential poetic work of the twentieth century, Eliot's reputation began to grow to nearly mythic proportions; by 1930, and for the next thirty years, he was the most dominant figure in poetry and literary criticism in the English-speaking world. T. S. Eliot received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1948.

  • He lived in St. Louis during the first eighteen years of his life. In 1914, when he was 25 years old, he married Vivienne Haigh-Wood, who died in 1947. In that same year, 1914, he settled in England. He became a British citizen in 1927, when he was 39 years old. Eliot separated from his first wife in 1933, and was remarried, to Esmé Valerie Fletcher, in 1957; she was 32 years old, and died in 1965.

Science fiction doodle for jorge luis borges
Science FictionDoodle’ for Jorge Luis Borges

  • On August 24, 2011, Google honoured the great Argentine writer and poet Jorge Luis Borges, with a fantastic doodle on its Google homepage. The doodle shows a wide architectural scenery. In the front stands Borges, an old man. The different architectural styles recall his most famous books, “Fictions” (1944), and “The Aleph” (1949), compilations of short stories (“The garden of Forking Paths”), interconnected by common themes such as dreams, labyrinths, libraries, animals, fictional writers, religion and God. Jorge Luis Borges was born on August 24, 1899, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and died on June 14, 1986, in Geneva, Switzerland.
