Where No Toys Have Gone Before -Star Trek James Burrell
“Space: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its five-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations; to boldly go where no man has gone before.”
With these words – first heard on television sets across North America on September 8, 1966 - science-fiction would journey into new and unchartered territory with a TV series called Star Trek. Following the adventures of the starship U.S.S. Enterprise and its altruistic crew - led by the heroic Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner), the cool and logical-minded Vulcan First Officer Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy) and the cantankerous yet compassion Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Leonard McCoy (DeForest Kelley), Star Trek depicted a 23rd century universe where humans and alien beings co-existed and worked together while endorsing values such as justice, racial tolerance and peace.

But before it became a watershed movie Jaws started life as a bestselling novel by author Peter Benchley. A former speechwriter for President Lyndon B Johnson, Benchley was also a journalist for the Washington Post and an editor for Newsweek Magazine. Fascinated with sharks since an early age, he was inspired to write Jaws after reading a 1964 news piece about a fisherman who had caught a 4,550-pound great white off Long Island. Several years later Benchley would propose a shark-themed story to Doubleday publishers and Jaws would be released in February of 1974.
The History of Coca-Cola Helen Nash
The product that has given the world its best-known taste and led to a memorabilia craze was born in Atlanta, Georgia, on May 8, 1886. Dr. John Stith Pemberton, a local pharmacist, produced the syrup for Coca Cola® and carried a jug of the new product down the street to Jacobs' Pharmacy, where it was placed on sale for 5 cents a glass at the soda fountain. Carbonated water was added to produce a drink that was at once "Delicious and Refreshing," a theme that continues to echo today wherever Coca Cola is enjoyed...
