Physics without Fear
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

(Video Conference Presentation from UMass Boston)

Classical (Newtonian) Mechanics explains and can predict most of what we see and experience in our daily lives. In a conversational, mostly non-mathematical manner, we will discuss the principles involved with Force, Motion, and Energy, and we will pay particular attention to observations that cannot be explained by classical mechanics. The course will end with how those observations led to a subsuming theory—Quantum Mechanics—and to Einstein’s work.

Facilitator: Walt Hagenbuch

East versus West: China’s Emerging Influence in Africa
1:15 PM - 2:45 PM

(Video Conference Presentation from UMass Boston)

China has recently picked up steam in its investments in Africa, lured in mainly by the abundance of natural resources on the continent that it deems critical to keeping its economic wheels spinning. African countries are in search of development partners and often disappointed by conditions imposed by the West on its investments. They are increasingly looking to China as a credible alternative for financing. This situation coupled with China’s PR campaign on its involvement in Africa as a win-win partnership has left many in the West not only skeptical but also worrying about what this means for the West’s business interests on the continent. As Africa’s middle class continues to grow, China’s cheap products and its ability to deliver in building the very much-needed infrastructure in Africa has made it the new darling of not only African governments but the people themselves. In this class, we will look at the implications of this new phenomenon in the context of the declining importance of military power and what this means for the African continent.

America’s great journey and technical achievement was accomplished with many backroom dramas coping with unforeseen hazards and chance failures. The facilitator will tell of his personal role in the design of the guidance system at MIT and some of the dramatic and near catastrophic events that are little known by the general public. The courage and character of the astronauts will also be highlighted.

The Poetry of William Butler Yeats and the Making of Modern Ireland
1:15 PM - 2:45 PM

 William Butler Yeats, Ireland’s most famous poet, lived during an extraordinary period of Irish history–one which witnessed both the flowering of a specifically Celtic literature and the climax of a centuries-long struggle for political independence. Yeats’s works were a major influence on both these movements; hence his poetry is best understood against the backdrop of a very specific time, place, and cast of characters. In addition to a close reading of the poems, we will examine them in their historical context, including allusions to events and to characters living and dead, real and imagined.

Dragonfly by Julia Golding

“Princess Taoshira of the Blue Crescent Islands is appalled when she is ordered to marry Prince Ramil of Gerfal in order to unite their lands. And he is not too pleased, either. They hate each other on sight. So, when Tashi and Ramil are kidnapped, they fear there is no escape from their kidnappers or from each other. Can they put aside their differences long enough to survive ambush, unarmed combat, brainwashing, and imprisonment? And will the people they meet on their adventure help them or betray them to the enemy?"   Publisher Description

All high school age kids (grades 9-12) who have read the book are welcome to join the discussion. Library copies are available at the children's desk. Snacks will be served.

This series of lectures, with accompanying films, focuses on the people who made landing men on the moon a reality. The scope of the project led to some of the most remarkable technical advances that were 21 done by ordinary people one would never assume to have played such significant roles. America’s great journey and technical achievement was accomplished with many backroom dramas coping with unforeseen hazards and chance failures. The facilitator will tell of his personal role in the design of the guidance system at MIT and some of the dramatic and near catastrophic events that are little known by the general public. The courage and character of the astronauts will also be highlighted.

The Poetry of William Butler Yeats and the Making of Modern Ireland
1:15 PM - 2:45 PM

 William Butler Yeats, Ireland’s most famous poet, lived during an extraordinary period of Irish history–one which witnessed both the flowering of a specifically Celtic literature and the climax of a centuries-long struggle for political independence. Yeats’s works were a major influence on both these movements; hence his poetry is best understood against the backdrop of a very specific time, place, and cast of characters. In addition to a close reading of the poems, we will examine them in their historical context, including allusions to events and to characters living and dead, real and imagined.

Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card

*Winner of the HUGO and NEBULA Awards

Andrew “Ender” Wiggin thinks he is playing computer simulated war games; he is, in fact, engaged in something far more desperate.  Ender may be the military genius Earth desperately needs in a war against an alien enemy seeking to destroy all human life. The only way to find out is to throw Ender into ever harsher training, to chip away and find the diamond inside, or destroy him utterly. Ender Wiggin is six years old when it begins. He will grow up fast. 

All Middle School (Grades 6 - 8) kids who have read the book are welcome to join us for the discussion. Library copies of the book are available at the children's desk. Snacks will be served.

Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”
1:15 PM - 2:45 PM

(Video Conference Presentation from UMass Boston)

 

“Lord, what fools these mortals be!” OLLI’s ongoing exploration of the works of the world’s greatest (and still most popular!) playwright comes around to “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” perhaps his most-often produced comedy, one that inspired a Benjamin Britten opera and a George Balanchine ballet, as well as countless artworks. Three sets of characters get scrambled together as two pairs of lovers, workmen rehearsing a play, and feuding factions of fairies crisscross paths during one magical night. By the time the first class meets, please buy or borrow from the library any copy of the play as long as the edition has plenty of notes to help clarify the text. The Folger Library edition is recommended for those fairly new to Shakespeare; the Oxford Classics edition for those more familiar with the Swan of Avon. Many articles and resources may be found on our class website: http://ollishakespeare.blogspot.com/. Whether you’re a Shakespeare newbie or diehard “bardolater,” join us as we do a close study of the text and view a couple of film versions of “Dream.”

East versus West: China’s Emerging Influence in Africa
1:15 PM - 2:45 PM

(Video Conference Presentation from UMass Boston)

China has recently picked up steam in its investments in Africa, lured in mainly by the abundance of natural resources on the continent that it deems critical to keeping its economic wheels spinning. African countries are in search of development partners and often disappointed by conditions imposed by the West on its investments. They are increasingly looking to China as a credible alternative for financing. This situation coupled with China’s PR campaign on its involvement in Africa as a win-win partnership has left many in the West not only skeptical but also worrying about what this means for the West’s business interests on the continent. As Africa’s middle class continues to grow, China’s cheap products and its ability to deliver in building the very much-needed infrastructure in Africa has made it the new darling of not only African governments but the people themselves. In this class, we will look at the implications of this new phenomenon in the context of the declining importance of military power and what this means for the African continent.

The Poetry of William Butler Yeats and the Making of Modern Ireland
1:15 PM - 2:45 PM

 William Butler Yeats, Ireland’s most famous poet, lived during an extraordinary period of Irish history–one which witnessed both the flowering of a specifically Celtic literature and the climax of a centuries-long struggle for political independence. Yeats’s works were a major influence on both these movements; hence his poetry is best understood against the backdrop of a very specific time, place, and cast of characters. In addition to a close reading of the poems, we will examine them in their historical context, including allusions to events and to characters living and dead, real and imagined.

Physics without Fear
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

(Video Conference Presentation from UMass Boston)

Classical (Newtonian) Mechanics explains and can predict most of what we see and experience in our daily lives. In a conversational, mostly non-mathematical manner, we will discuss the principles involved with Force, Motion, and Energy, and we will pay particular attention to observations that cannot be explained by classical mechanics. The course will end with how those observations led to a subsuming theory—Quantum Mechanics—and to Einstein’s work.

East versus West: China’s Emerging Influence in Africa
1:15 PM - 2:45 PM

(Video Conference Presentation from UMass Boston)

China has recently picked up steam in its investments in Africa, lured in mainly by the abundance of natural resources on the continent that it deems critical to keeping its economic wheels spinning. African countries are in search of development partners and often disappointed by conditions imposed by the West on its investments. They are increasingly looking to China as a credible alternative for financing. This situation coupled with China’s PR campaign on its involvement in Africa as a win-win partnership has left many in the West not only skeptical but also worrying about what this means for the West’s business interests on the continent. As Africa’s middle class continues to grow, China’s cheap products and its ability to deliver in building the very much-needed infrastructure in Africa has made it the new darling of not only African governments but the people themselves. In this class, we will look at the implications of this new phenomenon in the context of the declining importance of military power and what this means for the African continent.

Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”
1:15 PM - 2:45 PM

(Video Conference Presentation from UMass Boston)

 

“Lord, what fools these mortals be!” OLLI’s ongoing exploration of the works of the world’s greatest (and still most popular!) playwright comes around to “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” perhaps his most-often produced comedy, one that inspired a Benjamin Britten opera and a George Balanchine ballet, as well as countless artworks. Three sets of characters get scrambled together as two pairs of lovers, workmen rehearsing a play, and feuding factions of fairies crisscross paths during one magical night. By the time the first class meets, please buy or borrow from the library any copy of the play as long as the edition has plenty of notes to help clarify the text. The Folger Library edition is recommended for those fairly new to Shakespeare; the Oxford Classics edition for those more familiar with the Swan of Avon. Many articles and resources may be found on our class website: http://ollishakespeare.blogspot.com/. Whether you’re a Shakespeare newbie or diehard “bardolater,” join us as we do a close study of the text and view a couple of film versions of “Dream.”

Many questions will be broached: Who and what was Ho Chi Minh—nationalist or communist? What role did the Soviet Union and China play regarding the war? What is our legacy? Is Vietnam better or worse off after all the death, destruction, and suffering? What is the status of Vietnam in today’s new-world order? What about the veterans—American and Vietnamese?Who were the “boat people”?

World War II was the most cataclysmic event of the twentieth century; 20,000 people a day died.

History of Mystery 12: Agatha Christie, Part I
1:15 PM - 2:45 PM

(Video Conference Presentation from UMass Boston)

The previous 11 editions of “The History of Mystery” have proven so popular that we’re gearing up for a 12th semester of exploring books, reference sources, films, and classic TV series. Beginning with an overview of crime fiction subgenres, we’ll hail “The Queen of Crime,” Agatha Christie. The Guinness Book of World Records lists Christie as the best-selling novelist of all time. Her novels have sold roughly 2 billion copies: 1 billion in English and 1 billion in over 44 different languages. Her works come third in the rankings of the world’s most-widely published books behind Shakespeare’s works and the Bible. In Part One, we will concentrate on Miss Marple and the mysteries of Christie’s real life. “The History of Mystery” aims to refine and expand aficionados’ “criminal” tastes. (It is not necessary to have taken previous classes to understand and enjoy the Spring 2015 sessions. Most of the material presented has NOT been discussed in previous classes.) Handouts and links to various mystery fan websites from previous semesters are accessible on our class website: https://sites.google.com/site/thehistoryofmystery/

Vietnam 1945-1985: What Really Happened?
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

(Video Conference Presentation from UMass Boston)

This course will cover the years of American involvement in this far-flung innocuous land far from American shores. The facilitator will present a pertinent, relative presentation at the beginning of each class and then encourage a lively, healthy debate on the merits of what was learned. Many questions will be broached: Who and what was Ho Chi Minh—nationalist or communist? What role did the Soviet Union and China play regarding the war? What is our legacy? Is Vietnam better or worse off after all the death, destruction, and suffering? What is the status of Vietnam in today’s new-world order? What about the veterans—American and Vietnamese?Who were the “boat people”?

Is Vietnam better or worse off after all the death, destruction, and suffering? What is the status of Vietnam in today’s new-world order?

History of Mystery 12: Agatha Christie, Part I
1:15 PM - 2:45 PM

(Video Conference Presentation from UMass Boston)

The previous 11 editions of “The History of Mystery” have proven so popular that we’re gearing up for a 12th semester of exploring books, reference sources, films, and classic TV series. Beginning with an overview of crime fiction subgenres, we’ll hail “The Queen of Crime,” Agatha Christie. The Guinness Book of World Records lists Christie as the best-selling novelist of all time. Her novels have sold roughly 2 billion copies: 1 billion in English and 1 billion in over 44 different languages. Her works come third in the rankings of the world’s most-widely published books behind Shakespeare’s works and the Bible. In Part One, we will concentrate on Miss Marple and the mysteries of Christie’s real life. “The History of Mystery” aims to refine and expand aficionados’ “criminal” tastes. (It is not necessary to have taken previous classes to understand and enjoy the Spring 2015 sessions. Most of the material presented has NOT been discussed in previous classes.) Handouts and links to various mystery fan websites from previous semesters are accessible on our class website: https://sites.google.com/site/thehistoryofmystery/
