~~Come to experience Laughter Yoga at Fremont Main Library, 3:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M., Saturday, 9/6. 

 

Laughter Yoga is about getting silly and having fun.  No mats on the floor, and no strange or difficult contortions of your body.  No stories or jokes, either, just acting silly. Sit back and relax and laugh your class off with Stan Nelson, your licensed Laughter Yoga teacher.  Your mood will shift and you will leave the session with a new outlook after spending a lot of the time laughing, chuckling, and smiling over the fun times you’ve just had.

 

Stan Nelson is a humorous Laughter Yoga instructor.  Because he has also worked for many years as a caretaker, he has a fine-tuned empathy for other people and that compassion comes through—he knows what pain and suffering people can experience, and he strives to make them feel better.

Mona Lisa Smile

Set in 1953, Mona Lisa Smile tells the story of Katherine Watson (Julia Roberts), a new young art history professor at Wellesley College, an all-female campus with a prestigious reputation for academic excellence. Watson challenges her students and the Wellesley faculty to think outside of the current mores of the community and redefine what it means to be a success; meanwhile, she tries to come to terms with her own heart's desires. Mona Lisa Smile co-stars Marcia Gay Harden, Juliet Stevenson, and, as Watson's conflicting love interests, Dominic West and John Slattery. (2003; PG13, 117min)

Principal Augustine James (Alfre Woodard) in turn gives Dulaine a tough assignment -- a detention class with some of the biggest troublemakers on campus. (2006; PG13, 108min)

It's a well known fact that in addition to being known for it's "small town ambiance," Albany is famous for it's mathematicians!  Menger's Sponge is a fractal solid:  to build one is to understand it!  Each participant will make a level zero cube, which takes six pieces of paper.  We'll join those level zeros together for a level one, made of 20 cubes (120 pieces of paper). With time and patience, we might make it to a level two, which has 400 cubes.  If we can keep this up, we may build a level three, which has 8,000 cubes: that would take more than our allotted two hours, but we'll all come away with a concrete (or paper) understanding of fractals!

Dead Poets Society

The Welton Academy is a staid but well-respected prep school where education is a pragmatic and rather dull affair. Several of the students, however, have their thoughts on the learning process (and life itself) changed when a new teacher comes to the school. John Keating (Williams) is an unconventional educator who tears chapters of his textbooks and asks his students to stand on their desks to see the world from a new angle. (1989; PG, 128min)

Stand and Deliver

Edward James Olmos portrays the real-life Jaime Escalante, a no-nonsense mathematic teacher in a tough East LA high school. Handed a classroom full of "losers" and "unteachables," Escalante is determined to turn his young charges' lives around. Drawing from his own cultural heritage, Escalante forms a bond with his largely Hispanic student body, evoking the names of famous Spaniards and Latin Americans whose great accomplishments were predicated on their ability to learn. The students gradually come to realize that the only way they'll escape their own poverty-stricken barrio is to improve themselves intellectually.
