Greetings Dear Friends
Wow - it's September already. How time doth fly!
This month's newsletter contains a couple of links to two interesting videos, one about the technological advancements made in medical science that will make it possible to live very long lives. The other is a short, well-made video about the very compelling evidence, scientific and otherwise, that suggests that humans were genetically manipulated by E.T.s many years ago.
Jennis has two great gigs this month, one at the Red Brick in Guelph as part of the jazz festival and one in Kitchener at the Boathouse. See details below,
I'm very excited to be a part of two art shows in September, organized by Art$Pay. One is in Waterloo, the other in Guelph. Details below.

LONGEVITY AND HUMAN ORIGINS
The first video featured in this month's newsletter documents a gathering of the world's top scientists in the field of stem-cell research and other factors related to longevity. Listening to them we can see that major breakthroughs in what they call 'practical immortality', are imminent - this is not science fiction.
It did raise some immediate ethical questions for me, though. It seems that these types of life-prolonging treatments will, initially at least, only be available to those who can afford them. Should we be spending big money on extending the lives of the privileged, or should we be spending it in an effort to improve the quality of lives of the underprivileged? Even in affluent societies, however, an increase in the length of lives in an aging population will represent a real challenge for young people. They are already feeling stressed by the growing financial burden of pensions and health care. Plus, if elderly people are hanging on to jobs and careers for an extra-ordinarily long time, how will that effect the employment situation for the young.
Anyway, check out this video (about 38 minutes) and see what you think. At the end of the video are some practical tips for prolonging life that all of us can employ right now.
The second video deals with human origins by looking at evidence in our DNA, RH negative blood and other factors, suggesting that the dominant religious and scientific perspectives may be partially accurate, but are incomplete. This video (about 22 minutes) contains some fascinating food for thought.
JENNIS IN SEPTEMBER
We had a great time playing at the
Kitchener Blues Fest!
We'd like to thank the organizers and the army of volunteers who made it all happen. You did a great job!
We're happy to be back in Kitchener on Saturday, Sept 15. Jennis is mostly a duo, but from now on we'll be playing some gigs with a drummer, Tom Wolf. This Kitchener appearance will be one of them.
We are also excited to be in Guelph as part of the
Jazz Festival on Friday, Sept 14.
We'll be there as a duo.
