He created two of the most respected pieces of art in human history, The Mona Lisa and The Last Supper, both of which still maintain their credibility as masterpieces to this day. Da Vinci’s notebook also proved him to be a Renaissance man, he had many great ideas in various subjects including art, writing, anatomy and scientific design. Da Vinci’s notes show primitive ideas for inventions that wouldn’t be fully developed until centuries later. This flood of intelligence is what prevented a lot of his ideas from fully developing. Since da Vinci excelled in many subjects, he never had enough time in his life to completely focus on mastering one field in particular.
Often I think what wonderful carvings never came to birth because he died. How many jokes are missing from the world, and how many homing pigeons untouched by his hands? He shaped the world.

The world was bankrupted of ten million fine actions the night he passed on.” This quote really spoke to me because of all the science fiction in this book Ray really brought out the realism in this quote.
This specific play is produced by a well-known playwright, Steve Martin. The play was originally written back in the year 1993, but has been put on by many different theatres across the world since then. The focus of this play is a spoof on how it would play out if there was somehow a meeting that occurred between Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein, one of the greatest artist and greatest thinkers ever. They are arguably two of the most influential people of the 20th century, and definitely help mold our world into what it is today. I think the topics and main themes and ideas can all be tied together into a single category because they all relate.

Throughout the mid to late 1800’s, Thomas Nast, known as the father of political cartoons, captivated his viewers in a magnitude the nation had not seen before. Nast’s comedic and satirical cartoons sought to ameliorate and sway the nation in line with his own personal beliefs. The zenith of his fame and influence was during the dawning days of the Civil War (1864-1865) throughout the Reconstruction Era (1865-1877). In 1862, Thomas Nast joined Harper's Weekly as an artist. Before long, he earned national fame for his drawings of Civil War battles.
Enormously popular French author, the founding father of science fiction with H.G. Wells. Verne's stories, written for adolescents as well as adults, caught the enterprising spirit of the 19th century, its uncritical fascination about scientific progress and inventions. His works were often written in the form of a travel book, which took the readers on a voyage to the moon in From the Earth to the Moon (1865) or to another direction as in A Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864). Many of Verne's ideas have been hailed as prophetic.
Star Trek has stood for decades as a significant pop culture phenomenon in America as well as around the world with the advent of media globalization. Its Sci-Fi appeal to the masses makes the projected social issues through allegory and casting choices impactful to a certain degree. As John Meredyth Lucas was quoted saying in Bernardi’s article (1997), Star Trek gave producers, directors and writers "a free rein to touch on any number of subjects", such as “anti-Vietnam stories” and “civil rights movement stories” to name a few. Gene Roddenbery, the creator and executive producer for Star Trek and several of its episodes (p.210), was also outspoken about the intentions of Star Trek to propagate humanism during his time (p.214). Benardi noted that Star Trek was aired at a time of social instability through the Cold War and Civil War, as well as era of social movements such as racism and feminism.
