    HUDSON (CBS) – About 30 miles west of Boston there’s a museum dedicated to U.S. wars and what it was like to fight in them. However, at the American Heritage Museum in Hudson, the focus is not celebrating our conflicts but making sure we don’t repeat the mistakes of the past. They do that by telling the personal stories of the men and women who were on the front lines. The museum launched in 2019, starting at the Revolutionary War through today, using rare relics. President Rob Collings took us on an emotional tour through time, showing us a boat that landed on the beaches of Normandy, France on D-Day, June 6, 1944. “Think about the 21 guys who were on here. They were sitting on this boat for hours and hours waiting before they have that wave come ashore,” Collings told WBZ-TV. A boat used in the D-Day invasion at the American Heritage Museum in Hudson.

If you’ve been pondering how best to preserve or display your grandfather’s U.S. Army uniform or military artifacts, or are wondering whether to proudly display them, the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle offered plenty of advice in the first of an ongoing series of community outreach talks named Operation CARE. According to Owen Conner, curator of uniforms and heraldry for the Marine Corps Museum, said one of the first considerations is intent: Are you protecting this for investment, or is it something you’re proud of and want to display? An Army officer’s hat is among items preserved at the National Museum of the Marine Corps. History and Provenance Conner said that a dress uniform, flight helmet or letter from the front is a mere artifact. The real value is in the background story, with an individual’s details to accompany it. He suggested creating notecards detailing the historic facts and keeping them with the artifact. “Keeping it...

It offers plenty of new adventures and off-the-beaten-track sights to see far from the crowds of The Strip. In general, Las Vegas attractions have been opening up as COVID-19 restrictions ease. That said, it’s wise to double-check the status of specific locations and make reservations, where appropriate, prior to visiting. Dam, but not the dam (Great escapes in Boulder City) For those who have never been, Hoover Dam should be at the top of the list. A tour of and walk across this Depression-era engineering marvel is an experience to remember. Most dam experiences were closed at this writing, but things change. Check here for updated information.

Correspondent in Cairo Golden parade. The title of the show can already be read in large golden letters on Tahrir Square, the starting point, this Saturday evening, of a monumental parade.

But there was much more than the date to still maintain this false suspense. Over more than four months of preparations, expertly orchestrated leaks gave a foretaste of this giant sound and light on the banks of the Nile....
    BOSTON (CBS) — After DeSean Jackson made some anti-Semitic posts to his social media accounts, Julian Edelman offered to help educate the wide receiver instead of bash him. He’s taking the same approach with Miami Heat forward Meyers Leonard, who used an anti-Semitic slur during a video game livestream on Tuesday. Leonard issued an apology for using the slur Tuesday evening, saying he did not know what the word meant when he shouted it while playing Call of Duty. Edelman, who is Jewish, tweeted out an “open letter” to Leonard on Wednesday morning, offering the 29-year-old some perspective while also inviting him to a Shabbat dinner the next time he’s in Miami.

    The Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture unveiled its plan Thursday for a month’s worth of digital programming, initiatives and interactive media for December. One of the key features of the recently-announced programming is a daylong “cross-country digital community initiative” called “24 hours in a Time of Change.” The event will be hosted Dec. 11.

The Smithsonian will stream live programming from 10 of its museums and centers throughout the 24-hour sharing period. On top of that event, there will be a number of featured programs, such as a discussion with Victor Glover, NASA’s first Black astronaut to reside long-term on the International Space Station.

    toggle audio on and off change volume download audio October 31, 2020 | (Matthew Delaney) For Andrew Hammond, a Scotsman and the historian and curator of the International Spy Museum in D.C., the loss of iconic actor Sean Connery this week at the age of 90 hits particularly hard. “As a Scot, someone from the same country, it’s a great loss and a deep loss,” Hammond told WTOP on Saturday. “For spy fans and people who are from Scotland, but also for anyone who’s ever loved having the lights out and escaping through the lens of cinema, it’s just a great loss.” James Bond movies, Hammond said, have taught lots of people what they know about being a spy, even if many of them are pure fantasy. Connery played Ian Fleming’s James Bond character in seven films, starting with “Dr. No” in 1962. The 6-foot-2, rakishly handsome former soccer player, epitomized the role, according to Hammond. toggle audio on and off change volume download audio October 31, 2020 | Andrew Hammond of the International Spy Museum speaks with WTOP...
    Distance learning a drag? The Museum of Ice Cream has a solution that parents, teachers and kids will scream about (in a good way). Working with Real California Milk, the San Francisco museum has developed a science-meets-dessert curriculum they’re calling Sundae School, and it’s all about the history and science of ice cream. There’s even a physical education element. The hour-long, interactive lesson is free and open to all California schools and families, and will be led by the museum’s trained Sundae School “professors.” You’ll need to provide whole milk, ice, vanilla extract, sugar and salt. Yes, your kids will be making their own ice cream. Science! Find coupons for milk here and a rebate here. Sign-ups are now open for classes, which are available on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Oct. 1 through 31. Class size is limited to 30 students.
