A lesson of good manners from Wayne James Former Senator of the United States

Manly Manners: Lifestyle & Modern Etiquette for the Young Man of the 21st Century is a very interesting and enjoyable book, written by Wayne James, former US senator who has always had a passion for literature, so much that he decided to write a book for the young gentlemen of our times, offering them advice. “As a child I used to read many publications on etiquette, that were in the house of my family in the Virgin Islands, where I was born, and over the years I realized that in reality these texts were dedicating very little space for us men, so I decided to write a book that should become an ideal travel companion for every man, being able to offer my experience, the fruit of my many travels and what I have learned firsthand, thus suggesting how to behave better in any circumstance without incurring any embarrassment”.

Florence Nightingale The “Lady with the Lamp”

As we approach Women’s Month, it is imperative to consider the impact women have had on society. Florence Nightingale was a woman who changed the face of healthcare and the profession of nursing. She was born in a very wealthy family of the élite British bourgeois (his father was a pioneer of epidemiology) and she was named “Florence” in honor of the city of Florence where she was born at Villa Colombaia. It’s interesting that for the same reason, the older sister, born in Naples, was called “Parthenope”. During the Crimean War, Nightingale answered the cries for proper medical care of the wounded British soldiers when an article came out in the London Times by the war correspondent, William Howard Russell.
