Captain Planet Turns 20


Do you remember Captain Planet…..? I do. Captain Planet is celebrating his 20th birthday this year. The brainchild of Ted Turner in 1990, Captain Planet was created to “empower children to make a positive difference in their communities.” The Captain Planet Foundation, an organization dedicated to educating youth about the environment has declared September 15 “National Captain Planet Day”.

Captain Planet was created in Atlanta, GA and the city will celebrate with a series of events which will run through December.

  • The Chattahoochee Nature Center in Roswell will show original episodes of the Capt. Planet series through Sept. 18.
  • The Greater Atlanta Home Builders Assoc. along with the GA Tech School of Building Construction will host a Green Awareness 5K Run/Walk. Children are invited to come out and win prizes and to take photos with Capt. Planet.
  • The Atlanta City Council has introduced an initiative to set up a fund for the children of the Gulf to recover from the oil spill.
  • The celebrations will end on December 10, with a grand finale celebrity birthday bash at the GA Aquarium

The celebrations are not only meant to commemorate the “birth” of superhero but to inspire a new generation of planeteers.

Grow with the Life University Library

The Life University Library is the newest member of the Facebook community. Show them some love by visiting their page and making them your friend. What easier way to get information (not only about the library but lots of other campus events as well) than through Facebook updates?

It also pays to stay “in the know”. While checking out the Life University Facebook page I noticed the icon for the library’s page  I became their 44th friend. Just so happens they were having a random drawing, a sort of “friend drive” and guess who won, friend #44. ME! I won a $10 gift certificate to the bookstore. So be a friend and support the library, as they support you.
