Based on his upcoming book Lightning Strikes, John Wasik will use the life and inventions of the inventor Nikola Tesla as a lens to show how we can spark our own creativity and innovation. Wasik tells the compelling story of how Tesla created radio, the modern electrical grid, robotics and wireless/remote control. Tesla was a friend of Samuel Insull, the builder of the mansion. Wasik explores the relationship between these two men, beginning with their meeting in Thomas Edison's office in the 1880s, to their letters toward the end of Insull's life in the mid-1930s. For those who are fans of Samuel Insull, the Tesla car, Google, or drones, this is an exciting journey of inspiration and discovery. COST is FREE!

Education has mattered enormously during this recent recessionary period, in terms of helping individuals to avoid unemployment and garner higher wages. Those with only a high school education have continued to lose jobs throughout the entire recession, and their wages have slid lower. An associate’s degree improves prospects. A bachelor’s degree improves wages and employment even more.
