Nightingale last speaker Inside today's Signpost Longest in history "Our Changing World" is broadcast on nearly 1,000 radio stations, making it the largest in the history of broadcasting. Nightingale is often called the "dean of Eersonal motivation" ecause of his having made a life's work out of the study of people. Busy career After a busy career in broadcasting, and later in the insurance business, Nightingale was reported in 1956 in news stories as the man who "retired at 35. Instead of "retiring," however, he has devoted himself to full-time study of the pursuit which had challenged him since childhood studying the motivation of people. "Our Changing World" began as the subject of a casual luncheon conversation in 1959. Later, on a Canadian fishing trip he wrote several preliminary scripts and started syndicating the program.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
