As the Blitzkrieg raged in France, Hitler was already planning to fulfill his promise laid out in Mein Kampf, the forceful conquest of new living space for Germany in the East.

Cyber Safety: Protecting Children Online - For Parents and Caregivers

Due to statewide COVID-19 regulations and municipal responses, distance learning is quickly becoming a popular method of education in many towns. Now, more than ever, children are spending time at home on electronic devices; many of which are totally exposed to the internet and all of its offerings – both good and bad

In this presentation, you will discover alarming statistics that point to a reason for concern about the relative ease with which children can access objectively harmful content online. You will then learn skills that can be used to preserve your child's innocence and mitigate the potential for future social and psychological issues that result from accidental and purposeful early exposure to adult content on the web.

Numerous internet “lockdown” methods that are very easy to implement will be covered. There will be time for questions. Helpful resources and contact information will also be provided for one-on-one followup assistance.

This event takes place online. Please register to receive an email containing the Zoom meeting link, which will be sent out prior to the event. If you would like help connecting to the meeting, please contact me at 203-452-2850 ext. 2982 or mmanoni@ewml.org

Technology Troubles? A Program for Seniors

Are you talented in many areas, but still feel left behind in the wake of modern technology?

Do you know about the benefits of cell phones, laptops, and tablets, but feel uncomfortable using most of the features they offer? 

Would learning how to store medical and insurance records in a location safer and easier to manage than a file cabinet interest you? 

If so, please sign up for this class, where common fears about technololgy will be dispelled as you learn why incorporating it into your daily life is not as hard as it seems. You will also learn how to manage email, browse the internet, and video chat from the comfort of your home. Those who suffer from arthritis or sight and hearing troubles (which can easily make technology use a chore) are also encouraged to attend, as such difficulties can be overcome with many of the helpful but hidden accessibility options found in your devices.

Rest assured that no one will be pressured to give up on pen and paper, landline telephones (I use one myself), and flip phones. I will simply aim to prepare you with the confidence needed to use features you will benefit from! There will be time for questions at the end of each class, where contact info for one-on-one follow up help will be provided.

United States in WWII: Perspectives on History with a Modern-Day Context: Iwo Jima

As US forces drew closer to the Japanese home islands in early 1945, fighting reached new levels of intensity. Iwo Jima, a small, volcanic island only 650 miles from Japan, was the scene of desperate combat between the US Marines and the Japanese Army, and the most remembered photograph of WWII, the raising of the US flag atop Mount Suribachi.

United States in WWII: Perspectives on History with a Modern-Day Context: Atom Bomb

Since their first military use 75 years ago against Japan, few subjects have remained so controversial as the justification for use of atomic weapons. Prompting both the end of WWII in the Pacific and the beginning of a global cold war lasting 40 years, the proliferation and possible use of such weapons remains as a major peril into the 21st century.

Presented by Arthur Gottlieb, LCSW, CSA. Art Gottlieb is a local historian on subjects of political and military history.  He was formerly a professional curator of naval history and the Technical Director of Exhibits at the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum in New York City.  In these roles, Mr. Gottlieb worked regularly with veterans of all services towards the creation of exhibits accurately illustrating the history of 20th century warfare. Mr. Gottlieb maintains a private practice as a Counselor and Certified Senior Advisor in Norwalk, CT, and offers Pro Bono counseling services to soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.  Mr. Gottlieb served as an Auxiliary Officer of the United States Coast Guard for 17 years and for 4 years was Commander of Flotilla 7-2, 1st District (Southern Region), Sector Long Island Sound North. Registration is required for each program to receive the Zoom link
