The Wild, Wild East: Adventures in Business from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism

Author: 

Meurer, Thomas E.

Credentials: 

Thomas E. Meurer is a retired business executive whose good fortune has allowed for careers and experiences in nearly all of his areas of interest: competitive sports, the military, teaching, politics, diplomacy, agriculture, venture capital, natural history, science, oil, gas, and dozens of practical jokes. Over the last 55 years, He has done business in 47 countries, several of which no longer exist.

The Wild, Wild East recounts the adventures of late-onset Texan and international businessman Tom Meurer over a span of 55 years, from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism. As a freshly commissioned Air Force lieutenant, Tom experienced a build-up to war. But it was only after billionaire H. Ross Perot wooed him into the seemingly starchy world of software engineering that Meurer traveled to wartime Vietnam and Laos, searching for evidence of 1,600 missing U.S. prisoners of war.

European Hair, Eye, and Skin Color: Solving the Puzzle

Author: 

Frost, Peter

Credentials: 

Peter Frost holds a Ph.D. in Anthropology from Université Laval, in Quebec, Canada.

Europeans, especially those from northern and eastern Europe, are unique in having diverse hair and eye colors and a skin almost as pale as an albino’s. Those colors are not only brighter than the original black and brown but also “purer”—they lie within thin slices of the visible spectrum. Overall, that color scheme is more developed in women, who naturally have a higher incidence of red hair, blonde hair, and green eyes. They also have fairer skin. The distinguishing features of Europeans began as female features.
