Change Log keegan.wiki August 29, 2020-November 6, 2020

keegan.wiki Document Archive has grown more than I thought it would in the six years since I created it. Hopefully, I will not run out of ideas and it will continue to do so.


Having problem with lecture link displaying properly in some of the navigation menus. I do not know why nor do I understand how to fix it.

I still do not understand why the link displayed incorrectly and the only way I can fix it was to insert a line break tag in some of the places where it wasn’t displaying properly and in the others have decided to live with it for the time being.

Added a link to the Watergate Lecture on YouTube. Additionally, deleted unneeded file in the CSS folder

Corrected minor typo in title of 1950s Video Page.

Created new video directory. Additionally, updated the menu of all three site templates. Added the following pages: Industrial Revolution, Northern Renaissance and Scientific Revolution, and Watergate Lecture.

All site navigation menus have been updated with lecture link.

Below are the latest changes to jgkeegan.com.

Corrected minor typos in Little Rock and Eisenhower Paper.

I am amazed that I am still finding typos in work that is 12 years or more old. But, I suppose that comes with being a dyslexic.

Intelligent design 15 years after Kitzmiller v Dover

This year marks the 15th anniversary of Kitzmiller v. Dover 2005. The Federal Court decision was an important one for anyone who supports science education. Judge John E. Jones III ruled that the Creationist idea of intelligent design violated the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment and was not science. The following lecture demonstrates that intelligent design has still not gained acceptance within the scientific community and that it is simply creationism relabeled.

The Crusades Terry Jones

Crusades hosted by Terry Jones (Monty Python) is a 1995 British television series, which examined European Christians’ efforts to take Jerusalem and other cities in the Holy Land from the Muslim Turks. In four episodes, Jones provides a basic understanding of the motivations both European Christians and the Muslim Turks. Its use of dark humor to deal with many of the unpleasant episodes of the Crusades makes the series useful in the classroom. Jones brings all his skills to the presentation of the series: trained historian, writer; comedian all can be seen in his presentation. Additionally, he holds the students attention. Below is the list of links to the programs in the series.

  1. Pilgrims in Arms
  2. Jerusalem
  3. Jihad
  4. Destruction

One of my favorite series, it is my go to program on this topic. As a historian myself, I fully understand that the historiography of any event needs to be examined from as many aspects as possible in order to obtain complete understanding of it.

OneNote Comparison

Some two years ago, I wrote a post about Microsoft discontinuing development of what was then OneNote 2016 in favor of OneNote for Windows 10. That announcement went over like a lead balloon, and since then Microsoft has stated that it will continue development of what is now called OneNote side by side with OneNote for Windows 10.

I recently took another look at OneNote for Windows 10 to see what updates, if any, had been made. I found that the only one stand out for me was immersive reader; it is the only reason I have OneNote for Windows 10 on my machine, but I rarely if ever use it. It is likely because of my workflow and when I choose to do my proofreading. Nevertheless, immersive reader is a worthwhile and important tool which I hope comes to OneNote.

Not much has been added to OneNote for Windows 10 except immersive reader, and when compared to what is missing it’s not enough to make OneNote for Windows 10 daily note-taking program. As demonstrated in the video while embedded files can now be edited if they’re embedded using OneNote for Windows 10 they cannot be viewed and either iOS or Android versions of OneNote. Additionally, there is still no ability just save notebooks to the hard drive. Finally, there is still no ability to create and use page templates.

What’s new in OneNote for Windows 10. Before doing the video I uninstalled and reinstalled OneNote for Windows 10.

Lectures on YouTube

This week I discovered that PowerPoint has the capability to record presentations as videos that can be uploaded to YouTube or any website. This capability provides the opportunity for me to actually give the lectures I write. Below are examples of this capability. However, they are not the best from a performance standpoint; but the information is accurate.

This lecture and the three above are part of the unit Duck, Cover, and Conform America in the 1950s.

This lecture is part of a group materials on Watergate, which I created some years ago.
