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.

Great New England Hurricanes of the 20th Century (1938 & 1954)
11:40 AM - 1:00 PM

(Video Conference Presentation from UMass Boston)

Brown Bag Lunch Series

 

Hurricanes are part of the history of Southern New England, and occasionally an especially destructive one will hit the region. During the 20th Century, two such hurricanes made landfall here, one in 1938 and another in 1954. We will look at New England hurricanes, discuss why we get them, and then see the effects of the two greatest ones to hit in the past 80 years.

Presenter: Jim Manning received a BS in Atmospheric Science and Chemistry from the University of Massachusetts and in Meteorology from Michigan State University. Jim was formerly weekend meteorologist on WJAR channel 10 in Providence, RI, and is currently a Precision Weather Meteorologist and meteorologist on WATD radio.

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.”

Inside the Apollo Project
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

(Video Conference Presentation from UMass Boston)

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.

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.

The Lost History of the New Madrid Earthquakes
11:40 AM - 1:00 PM

(Video Conference Presentation from UMass Boston)

Brown Bag Lunch Series

 

From December 1811 to February 1812, massive earthquakes shook the middle Mississippi Valley. In her book, The Lost History of the New Madrid Earthquakes, Conevery Bolton Valencius weaves together scientific and historical evidence to demonstrate the vast role the New Madrid earthquakes played in the United States in the early nineteenth century. She explores the intertwined reasons—environmental, scientific, social, and economic—why something as consequential as major earthquakes can be lost from public knowledge, offering a cautionary tale in a world struggling to respond to global climate change amid widespread willful denial.

Presenter: Professor Conevery Bolton Valencius writes and teaches about U.S. environmental history, the history of science and medicine, and the American Civil War at UMass Boston. Her recent projects have focused on the history of earthquakes and seismology, the history of the environmental sciences, and journeys of trade and exploration in the American West.

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.

Practical Meditation
11:40 AM - 1:00 PM

(Video Conference Presentation from UMass Boston)

Brown Bag Lunch Series

Meditation may sound like something at which only a monk or a guru can be good. But learning how to meditate is easy and benefits your physical and emotional health. In this session, you'll learn a simple meditation technique (created by a cardiologist) called the Relaxation Response. You'll find out what research has shown about the physical and mental benefits of meditation. And we'll try out the technique together so you can see if it's something you'd like to practice on your own. This meditation technique is done while seated in a chair. If you'd like, please bring a pillow to sit on or to put behind your back. The Relaxation Response is safe for people at all fitness levels (since it basically involves sitting and breathing!). However, it's not recommended if you're congested, or if you have asthma or another health condition that makes breathing difficult.

Presenter: Anya Weber has been meditating since 1994 and has been using the Relaxation Response, a simple meditation technique, since 2009. She became interested in this style of meditation when she attended a workshop with Dr. Herbert Benson, the cardiologist who created and popularized the technique. Anya is a writer and editor with the Institute for Community Inclusion at 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.”

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.

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.

Brave New World: Reflections on Four Trips to China in Two Years
11:40 AM - 1:00 PM

(Video Conference Presentation from UMass Boston)

Brown Bag Lunch Series

Perhaps no country has changed more than China in the last 40 years. For many years a broken and technologically backward power, today China has emerged as a rival to American dominance, and in the eyes of some as a threat to that dominance. China is constantly written about in the American popular media, but most of what is written paints a negative picture. I decided more than two years ago that I would have to see for myself, and so in the last two years I have been to China four times, teaching briefly once in Beijing and twice in Xi’an, and what I have learned is that what I have read about China in the media, even if accurate in many respects, does not come close to capturing the vitality and spirit of life in China. As in Boston, the old is now surrounded by the new, but is still there. In this visual presentation I will discuss my four trips to China and what I have learned about Chinese society, and especially about the many people I was able to meet while there, many of whom have become my friends.

 

Presenter: John Hess has been teaching in the English and American studies departments at UMass Boston for the past 25 years. He has completed extensive research in the political and social movements of the 1960s. John also traveled to China twice last summer: he taught at the Beijing Information, Science, and Technology University in late-May/early-June, and for the second time at Shaanxi Normal University in mid-July.

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.”

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.

Israeli/Palestinian Conflict: Is Peace Possible?
11:40 AM - 1:00 PM

(Video Conference Presentation from UMass Boston)

Brown Bag Lunch Series

 

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict seems to be endless. Is there anything that the United States or other nations can do that would help the parties move toward peace? The Kerry mediation didn’t work. Can anything work? Does all the turmoil in the Middle East make it easier or harder to move toward peace?

Presenter: Professor David Matz teaches conflict resolution at UMass Boston and is a partner in The Mediation Group in Brookline, MA. He has written extensively about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and he has worked for years with Arab-Jewish groups in the Middle East and in the United States. Professor Matz has devoted considerable time to work with Neve Shalom/Wahat al-Salaam, an Arab-Jewish village in Israel that has been nominated twice for the Nobel Peace Prize and that has won many other international prizes.

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/

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/

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”?

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”?

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/
