FIRST PRESIDENTIAL SPEECH ON TV IN 1947

See the source image

On October 5, 1947, President Harry Truman (left/above) made the
first-ever televised presidential address from the
White House,
asking Americans to cut back on their use of grain in order to
help starving Europeans.

At the time of Truman’s food-conservation speech, Europe was
still recovering from
World War II and suffering from famine.

Truman, the 33rd commander in chief, worried that if the U.S. didn’t provide food aid, his administration’s Marshall Plan for European economic recovery would fall apart.

He asked farmers and distillers to reduce grain use and requested
that the public voluntarily forgo meat on Tuesdays, eggs and
poultry on Thursdays and save a slice of bread each day.

OVER $6 THOUSAND FOR THIS?

an artwork of a pickle slice from a McDonald's burger stuck to a ceiling is on exhibition in New Zealand and selling for $6,200

An Australian artist’s latest masterpiece is a McDonald’s pickle
stuck to a ceiling — and he wants $6,200 for it.

The gallery director said “The work, simply titled "Pickle," gets
at the question of how people attribute value and meaning to
things”. 

Whoever buys the art will get instructions on how to recreate it
for themselves.
