Beekeeping is a fascinating hobby, a profitable sideline, and an activity the whole family can participate in.

Come hear from Connecticut’s State Bee Inspector Mark Creighton about how honey bees directly affect the vitality of our agricultural industry, responsible for 33% of the food we eat. Experience the marvel of these social insects and learn why these insects are threatened by extinction. Bee-ginner’s beekeeping will teach you the basics about how to start a beehive in your backyard. Come catch the bug, you will not regret it!

misc_none 6:30 PM  -  8:00 PM Fake News: Can You Spot It? Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

What is fake news, and how do we stop ourselves from falling for it? In this presentation, you’ll learn strategies for evaluating the news, so you can stop the fake stuff in its tracks.

The presenters will begin by defining “fake news” on a spectrum. There is a difference between actual fake news, misleading news, biased news, and (at the other end of the spectrum entirely) news that simply challenges a held belief. Next, the presenters will explore the concept of confirmation bias. To differentiate between what is true and false online, we must evaluate ourselves (our motives, our perspectives, our interests) just as we evaluate the news sources.

This program is especially important now that social media has made every information consumer into an information producer. It is our habit, when a piece of news makes us feel strongly, to share that piece of news with others. Given that, when we improve our abilities to determine news quality we do not just help ourselves; we help others too, as we let dubious news die instead of adding fuel to a false fire.

This program is a collaboration between the Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) Journalism department and Reference and Instruction librarians at CCSU’s Elihu Burritt Library.

Presenters:
Theodora Ruhs, Professor of Journalism
Martha Kruy, Reference, Instruction and Assessment Librarian
Briana McGuckin, Reference and Instruction Librarian
Susan Slaga-Metivier, Head of the Reference and Instruction Department, Elihu Burritt Library

misc_none 10:00 AM  -  12:00 PM The Long and Fascinating History of Toilets Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Contrary to popular belief, Thomas Crapper did not invent the toilet. But who did? Better yet, when did people first start using toilets? And were they anything like the toilets we know today?

Presenter Kimberly Worsham will explore the long and fascinating history of toilets, from ancient Mesopotamia to today. We will walk through the not-so-short history and learn things like: why we should be grateful for Queen Elizabeth I, how toilets have been useful in wars, and the best reasons to visit Japan and Malaysia.

We will also learn about how even in current times, toilets are not so common as we often think they are, why that is is, and what is being done about it - from Cambodia to San Francisco. Of course, we will also tastefully touch on how you can better your toilet experience in your own home and on the road. The class will be partly interactive, so bring all of your most curious questions and taboo tales.

Kimberly Worsham is a water & sanitation (WASH) specialist in the development industry. She discovered a passion for toilets early as a child who always needed to inspect restaraunt facilities, but was reminded of that love while consulting in India, and has continued her love by working on it in Australia and Cambodia. She's also a board member for the water organization NYC H2O. In different lives, she has worked in local government, corporate marketing, and even taught math in Rwanda. She received her MPA and B.Sc in business at NYU, and a Masters in Integrated Water Management from the University of Queensland as an International WaterCentre Scholar.

In this series, we won't kill any lawyers, but we'll meet a few of them who act as detectives in some highly regarded series.

This month: Open and Shut [2002] by David Rosenfelt
Whether dueling with new forensics or the local old boys' network, irreverent defense attorney Andy Carpenter always leaves them awed with his biting wit and winning fourth-quarter game plan. But Andy prefers the company of his best friend, Tara, to the people he encounters in the courtroom. Tara, a golden retriever, is clearly smarter than half the lawyers who clog the courts of Passaic County. However, just as it seems Andy has everything figured out, his dad, New Jersey's legendary ex-D.A., drops dead in front of him at a game in Yankee Stadium. The shocks pile on as he discovers his dad left him with two unexpected legacies: a fortune of $22 million that Andy never knew existed . . . and a murder case with enough racial tinder to burn down City Hall. Struggling to serve justice and bring honor to his father, Andy must dig up some explosive political skeletons-and an astonishing family secret that can close his case (and his mouth) for good.

lib_sherlock_holmes.GIF 3:00 PM  -  4:15 PM Mystery Book Group: Let's Kill All the Lawyers Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

"The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers" is one of the few memorable lines from Shakespeare's Henry the Sixth, Part 2, uttered by Dick the butcher, a character no one remembers. In this series, we won't kill any lawyers, but we'll meet a few of them who act as detectives in some highly regarded series.

This month: The Lincoln Lawyer [2005] by Michael Connelly
Representing some unsavory characters in his work as a defense lawyer, Mickey Haller takes on his first high-paying and possibly innocent client in years, but finds the case complicated by events that suggest a particularly evil perpetrator.

This Book Club is moderated by Carole Shmurak, author of 11 books and Professor Emerita at Central Connecticut State University.
