Wars and Rumors of Wars

PRESENTED ON AUG 17, 2016

Growing up in South Florida during the Cuban Missile Crisis and realizing that neither government nor science could provide the answers to a mutually assured destruction led to a life seeking hope for the future. This journey of 20 slides offers an insight into one life journey illustrating how utilizing deeper technologies of human consciousness can make a difference in ones life and perhaps in the lives of others.

He worked for the State of Texas for 20 years as a Macintosh Computer Trainer and System Analyst.

Heroes and Heroines

BY JON TORRENS
@ VOL 3 ON SEP 22, 2015

"Carrie Fisher was 18 when she starred in Star Wars. She owns that film. She commands all the other characters. [She's] a female character that doesn't have to become masculine to be in charge"

In Heroes and Heroines from PechaKucha Night St. Neots Vol. 3 Jon Torrens passionately shares about the heroes and heroines from the big screen (and some from the small screen) that have inspired him over the years, highlighting their strengths but not over looking their flaws. The last hero he features is his greatest, adding a sweet twist to a solid line-up of true greats. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" On Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015.
