Expo 2015 has unveiled it’s mascots for the world’s fair in Milan. They don’t have names yet. They’re asking for input from the public. Presumably, the characters will be more full developed with different personalities and will combine to make one big mega-mascot.

I’m not sure if these characters will really appeal to kids, however. For me, they recall the characters from Epcot’s now-defunct Food Rocks attraction which never seemed very appealing. I mean, who wants to eat anthropomorphic food? But, then again, folks DID like the California Raisins.

Treasure Island, the site of the 1939-1940 Golden Gate Exposition, has a new view: a new Eastern Span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. This photo-montage shows the new span just a few hours apart on 10 September 2013.

So far, Expo 2015’s confirmed participants represent 86% of the world’s population. I put this map together tonight to show the countries that haven’t confirmed yet. The ones with percentages are countries who represent more than 0.5% of the world’s population:- United States, 4.46%- Philippines, 1.38%- United Kingdom, 0.89%- South Africa, 0.75%- Ukraine, 0.64%- Poland, 0.54%- Canada, 0.50%Expo 2015 opens in 652 days. I hope we don’t have a repeat of Expo 2010’s United States Pavilion, which was put together at the last minute… or worse, a repeat of Expo 2000’s United States Pavilion which was canceled.We need to find a way to do this better here in the United States. We need an ongoing organization dedicated specifically to fund and authorize our participation in world’s fairs.
