MINDFULNESS MEDITATION - Explore the Wandering Mind with Carolyn Carpentiere
7:30 PM

KEEPING MANHASSET HEALTHY 2018 ~ Take an hour...Just for you.

Often people think that meditation is about letting go of thoughts and stilling the mind but that is close to impossible.  Our minds think, question, judge, plan, speculate and that's okay.  We can learn a lot about ourselves by bringing oiur awareness to the wandering mind. We can turn our wandering minds into the focus of our meditation. The trick is to not get carried off into any one of those thoughts, but instead, to just keep noticing what comes up, let it go and see what comes up next.

LIVE THEATER with David Houston: MIKE AND THE HUBBLE!
1:00 PM

FOR LONG ISLAND READS 2018
Actors Diana Heinlein and David Houston in an Hour-Long Dramatic Reading as a Radio Play “Mike and the Hubble!” Adapted by David Houston from Mike Massimino’s engrossing, amusing, suspenseful, inspiring book, SPACEMAN, An Astronaut's unlikely journey to unlock the Secrets of the Universe, and from NASA sources.

LIVE THEATER: MIKE AND THE HUBBLE with David Houston
1:00 PM

This is a 1-hour "radio style" dramatic reading (with background music and effects) from the pages of SPACEMAN by Mike Massimino, , and from NASA sources. With actors Diana Heinlein and David Houston.

David Houston's dramatic play is based on the 2018 NORTH SHORE READS SELECTION ~ ONE ISLAND, ONE BOOK

Publisher’s Weekly: “What could have been a rote, stoic memoir recounting dates and stats proves to be anything but. This is an engaging and uplifting memoir that’s sure to give readers a deeper appreciation for the U.S. space program and inspire some future astronauts.”
 
Bill Nye, CEO of the Planetary Society: “Inspired by moonwalkers, Mike grew up, became an astronaut, and fixed the Hubble Space Telescope, all the while remaining some kinda humble. You can’t help but follow him from Long Island to the bottom of the spacewalk practice pool, then 350 miles up and back. He’s a spaceman through and through; he tells how hard work can take you out of this world.”
 
About the Author: A Long Islander, Mike Massimino was born August 19, 1962 in Oceanside and raised in Franklin Square. He grew up a working class kid whose seemingly unreachable dream of becoming an astronaut and going to space was realized in an unlikely journey that was driven by determination and commitment and realized with hard work and humor. After two missions to the Hubble Telescope and four space walks to make critical repairs to the telescope, Mike is now the Senior Space Advisor to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, a Columbia University professor, an author, a media personality, and an in-demand speaker. Mike has appeared on “The Big Bang Theory” six times, as well as frequent appearances on news programs, Neil deGrasse Tyson’s “Star Talk” radio and television shows, “The Late Show with David Letterman,” Craig Ferguson’s new series “Join or Die” as well as his earlier ”The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.” Mike married his wife Carola on August 11, 1989, and they have two children: daughter Gabriella and son Daniel. Mike’s most recent honor was the renaming of the street where he grew up to “Mike Massimino Street.”

North Shore Audubon presents: USING LONG ISLAND NATIVE PLANTS TO PROTECT WILDLIFE
7:00 PM

Professor Rusty Schmidt will explain why our native plants are important, show how to determine if a plant is native to Long Island, and describe how to place these plants together for an aesthetic habitat for your yard.  Mr. Schmidt will also explain what is a native cultivar and why we should use them as a second choice.  By using native species in a habitat rich environment, we will have a positive impact on our fauna, especially birds and insects. Prof. Schmidt is a landscape ecologist employed by Nelson, Pope and Voorhis in Melville, NY.  He also is an Adjunct Professor in the Horticulture Department at Farmingdale State College, NY. He is President of the Long Island Plant Initiative (LINPI).  Prof. Schmidt designs and constructs alternate ways of managing stormwater runoff, creating hundreds of designs for habitat restorations, complete restorations of ecosystems, and many rain gardens bio-infiltration swales, bio-retention basins and stormwater ponds, ranging in size from a small backyard to multi-acre projects. He co-authored three books “Plants for Stormwater Design ”, Vol 1 and 2, and a homeowner’s guide, “ Blue Thumb Guide to Raingardens”.

THOMAS COLE'S ATLANTIC CROSSINGS with Thomas Germano
2:00 PM

Thomas Cole (1801–1848) America's greatest 19th century landscape artist was born in northern England at the start of the industrial revolution, and immigrated with his family to the United States in 1818. Cole traveled extensively throughout England (1829–31) and Italy (1831-32) returning to America to create some of his most ambitious works, notably The Oxbow and The Course of Empire, works which inspired a new generation of American painters. Cole's passion for the American wilderness manifested into strong visual warnings of the harsh ecological cost of unchecked development of the land. Cole's dialogue with English Romantic painters of the mid-19th century including Richard Martin, Turner and Constable and his influences on the next generation of American landscape painters including Asher Durand and Frederic Edwin Church, place Cole, the founder of the Hudson River School, into a global context. Thomas Cole: Atlantic Crossings, related to the exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art from January 30-May 13, 2018.
