A Taste of Sacramento, California

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT SACRAMENTO?

  1. Sacramento is the capital of the U.S. state of California, and the county seat of Sacramento County. According to the U.S. census bureau the population was 466,676.

  2. Despite a devolution of state bureaucracy, the state government remains by far Sacramento's largest employer. The City of Sacramento expends considerable effort to keep state agencies from moving outside the city limits. In addition, many federal agencies have offices in Sacramento.

  3. Each year the city hosts the Sammies, the Sacramento Music Awards. Sacramento also has a reputation as a center for Dixieland jazz, because of the Sacramento Jazz Jubilee which is held every Memorial Day weekend. Events and performances are held in multiple locations throughout the city. Each year thousands of jazz fans from all over the world visit for this one weekend.

  4. Sacramento has a Mediterranean climate, characterized by damp to wet, cool winters and hot, dry summers.

The mean annual temperature is 61.1 °F, with monthly means ranging from 45.8 °F in December to 75.4 °F in July. Summer heat is often moderated by a sea breeze known as the "delta breeze" which comes through the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta from the San Francisco Bay.

Ship of Fools


Summary: "Ship of Fools" 1965

Drama film/Black and white 2h 29m Play trailer on YouTube 84% liked this movie When an eclectic group of passengers boards a cruise ship bound for prewar Germany, they form a microcosm of 1930s society. . . .During their weeks at sea, the group forges bonds and rivalries, and unearths secrets. There is such wealth of reflection upon the human condition in Ship of Fools and so subtle an orchestration of the elements of love and hate . . .It , , ,symbolizes the exhaustion of that old and cultivated German class that might have stopped the Nazis, had it possessed the wits and energy. . .

They have clearly made the symbol of the helpless healer in this soul-sick ship of fools. Around it swirl all the other distasteful and pathetic characters—the loud and noxious anti-Semite of scene-stealing Mr. Ferrer who spreads the foulness of hatred through the first-class saloon; . . .the stuffy and mawkish self-serving of several Germanic types; and the cryptic philosophizing of a cheerful dwarf . . All of this is symbolic of the passage of foolish humanity into the maw of Nazism, if you chose to see it that way, and it may even be symbolic of the eternal folly and helplessness of man.

Mr. Kramer has put it into motion at a leisurely, rolling pace that suggests the cyclical rhythm of a voyage across the sea—or across the horizonless stretches of a complacent world. It is a perpetually engrossing and thought-provoking film that . . deserves to be seen. It has significance for the social and political events occurring today in the United States especially, and in other places as well. Initial release,:July 29, 1965- Director: Stanley Kramer Adapted from: Ship of Fools Screenplay: Abby Mann- Academy Award for Best Cinematography, Black-and-White,
