    Contact: Reference Department   860-652-7720   
   

Cable Cord Cutting-copyright Alexey Rotanov/Fotolia.comIs your cable, phone and internet bill one of the highest in your household? Are you tired of switching providers or arguing with yours when your short-term introductory rates expire and your bill more than doubles? Or do you just want to save $1,000 a year or more? Cut the cord! In this free and independent seminar, James Gifford, who has 30 plus years’ experience in consumer electronics, home entertainment systems and Internet computing, will explain:

  • The real costs of cable TV and phone service. (It’s more than you think!)
  • The range of services available from Internet sources like Netflix, Hulu, Vudu and hundreds of provider websites.
  • YouTube (It’s not just for cat videos anymore!)
  • The basic TV and entertainment system you need to get the most from Internet providers.
  • The inexpensive equipment you need to connect to these sources. (You might even own some of it already!)
  • The secret cable telephone providers don’t want you to know … and how to turn it to your advantage.
  • How to cut Internet costs by even more than just rates.
  • How to reduce or eliminate all ads and commercial interruptions.
  • How to make it all work together for an unparalleled home entertainment experience!

Don’t miss out because you think this is all too technical and difficult for a dedicated “couch potato” – there are options as easy to use as plugging in a toaster. It only takes a little computer and internet experience to be able to use the more advanced options. And bring your questions! This seminar will cover the special issues and problems of “getting good TV” in the greater Glastonbury area, but anyone can use the more general information. This is an independent presentation and is not sponsored by any manufacturer or provider. Seating is limited, so registration is required online or at the Reference Desk at 860-652-7720.  

James Gifford is a Tolland, CT resident and owner of NitroPress Communications in Tolland, CT (www.nitropress.com).

Megaphone News-copyright pathdoc/Fotolia.com

Fake News: Can you spot it?” is an hour-long interactive workshop which will define fake news on a spectrum. Once defined, we explore the concept of confirmation bias and experience an actual news evaluation process, using different online source types’ coverage of the same current event to compare and contrast content quality. The workshop’s discussion topic is deliberately apolitical since this is not a partisan presentation. 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. Seating is limited to 21, so registration is requested and begins August 17, online or at the Reference Desk at 860-652-7720.

The presenters are a collaboration between the Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) Journalism Department and Reference and Instructions librarians at CCSU’s Elihu Burritt Library: Theodora Ruhs, Professor of Journalism; Martha Kruy, Reference, Instruction and Assessment Librarian; Briana McGuckin, Reference and Instruction Librarian, and Susan Slaga-Metivier, Head of the Reference and Instruction Department, Elihu Burritt Library.

This international trio, Joe Carter (U.S.) – violao (classical nylon string guitar); Leco Reis (Brazil) – baixo (acoustic bass) and Adriano Santos (Brazil) – bateria e percussao (drums and percussion, is well versed in the various Brazilian styles of music ~ Samba, Bossa Nova, Baiao, Choro. By combining this music with straight-ahead Hard Bop Jazz, the trio creates a style known as Brazilian Jazz. Think "Jobim meets Coltrane." The trio’s repertoire is a combination of original tunes and songs by some of Brazil’s classic composers such as Antonio Carlos Jobim, Ary Barroso, Baden Powell, Noel Rosa, Dorival Caymmi, Pixinguinha and others. By adding the improvisational aspect of North American Jazz to the mixture, the group creates a sound that is truly international and one that has entertained appreciative audiences on four continents. Highlights have included concerts and club appearances in Paris, Mumbai, Corsica, Stuttgart and Rio de Janeiro. Seating is limited, so reservations are required starting August 28, online or at the library’s Reference Desk at 860-652-7720.

A Hole in the Wind Book Cover-appears with permissionAuthor David Goodrich on BicycleAfter a distinguished career in climate science in Geneva, David Goodrich returned to the U.S. to find the reality of climate change transformed into a tangled political issue. Concerned about the misinformation that dominates politics and the media, he rode his bike 4,200 miles to the Oregon coast, talking with the people he met along the way during this ultimate road trip. Beautifully simple, direct and honest, A Hole in the Wind is a refreshing ride through a difficult and controversial topic, and a rich read that makes you glad to be alive. This event is co-sponsored with Cycling Concepts in Glastonbury. Books will be available for purchase and signing at the event. Registration is required and begins August 31, online or at the Reference Desk at 860-652-7720.

“This cyclist's view of how things really are effectively cuts across head-butting arguments about global warming. A compelling narrative enlivened as much by the author's encounters on the road as by his skillful unfolding of scientific knowledge.” Kirkus Reviews

Starting Wednesday, November 8, the Welles-Turner Memorial Library hosts three lectures on Civil War topics presented by Professor Hamish Lutris, History, Capital Community College. 

The Mascot © John Weiss-courtesy of The Greenwich Workshop Inc-www.greenwichworkshop.comThe Civil War was fought by citizen armies that often had their own, very unmilitary, ways of fighting. One thing they did was to bring or adopt animals of many kinds. This talk will focus on those much-loved unit mascots. The idea of using animals to represent military units throughout history will be discussed, as well as the particular animals honored in Civil War lore and memorialization. The audience should learn something of the more personal side of a war that is often examined only in terms of casualties and logistics. Register for each workshop beginning October 11, online or at the Reference Desk at 860-652-7720.

Professor Lutris has worked in some of America’s premier natural and historical sites, leading hiking and historical programs. He has also lectured extensively in the United States, Europe and Canada, presenting programs on wide-ranging historical topics, including Native American history, the Civil War, Scientific History, Social and cultural history, World War I, World War II and the American West. All workshops start at 6:30 pm.

Starting Wednesday, November 8, the Welles-Turner Memorial Library hosts three lectures on Civil War topics presented by Professor Hamish Lutris, History, Capital Community College. 

The Civil War was the first war covered comprehensively by newspapers on both sides. It was also the first war during the age of the telegraph, which made newspaper coverage of the war something out of the wild west - cut-throat, light on ethics, always exciting, but at times wildly inaccurate. This talk will center on newspaper coverage of the war, the reporters who covered it, and the rough-and-tumble of political reporting during the war. It offers both an often humorous view of emerging media of the time, and sheds light on the media and its role today. Register for each workshop beginning October 11, online or at the Reference Desk at 860-652-7720.

Professor Lutris has worked in some of America’s premier natural and historical sites, leading hiking and historical programs.
