Global Beat: China and Alibaba

A Glimpse of Alibaba


If you ask a China watcher to name a Chinese company that mirrors its country’s meteoric economic growth, Alibaba would undoubtedly be on the very short list of the top contenders.  In America Alibaba is known as China’s Amazon.  In China it is a synonym for e-commerce platform, allowing millions of e-shops to operate in the largest internet marketplace on earth.  Understanding Alibaba’s unlikely birth and bumpy journey to greatness will help us gain insight into a country in rapid transition.

Join us on Thursday, October 19th at 7:00 p.m. in Room A for “A Glimpse of Alibaba.”  We will start the evening with a viewing of the documentary Crocodile in the Yangtze.  This film was directed by Canadian Porter Erisman, a former VP of marketing for Alibaba. It is an intimate and candid story of Alibaba and its charismatic leader Jack Ma.  Immediately, following the viewing of this film we will have an interview and Q & A session with Shen Yonggang  and Yu Yifei, a husband-and-wife duo who own a successful business on Alibaba’s platform. We hope that the program will provide a unique opportunity for a close look at Alibaba and, through it, China.

 

This discussion is part of the Library's year-long Global Beat program in which the

library has planned a series of talks and musical programs that explore different regions

of our world.

AARP Drivers Safety Class

THIS IS A TWO-DAY CLASS (OCT. 13 &20); 6 HOURS TOTAL.

For Questions about the class, call the instructor, John Spavaro, at 412-531-5690

Space is limited!
$15 for AARP members and $20 for nonmembers (payable at the first class)

Cars have changed. So have traffic rules, driving conditions and the roads you travel every day, yet some drivers age 50-plus have never looked back since they got their first driver's license.
By taking a driver safety course you'll learn the current rules of the road, defensive driving techniques, and how to operate your vehicle more safely in today's increasingly challenging driving environment. You'll learn how you can manage and accommodate common age-related changes in vision, hearing, and reaction time. In addition, you'll learn:

 

  • How to minimize the effects of dangerous blind spots
  • How to maintain the proper following distance behind another car
  • The safest ways to change lanes and make turns at busy intersections
  • Proper use of safety belts, air bags, antilock brakes and new technology found in cars today
  • Ways to monitor your own and others' driving skills and capabilities
  • The effects of medications on driving
  • The importance of eliminating distractions, such as eating, smoking and using a cellphone

After completing the course, you will have a greater appreciation of driving challenges and a better understanding of how to avoid potential collisions and injuring yourself or others.

About the course

The AARP Smart Driver Course, offered by AARP Driver Safety, is the nation’s largest classroom and online driver safety course and is designed especially for drivers age 50 and older.

Visible Pictures: Tales of Comics Script Writing with Yona Harvey-Lebo Comics Fest

Have you ever wondered what happens behind the scenes when making a Marvel comic? What are the steps of telling a story in words and pictures? Until recently, poet and writer Yona Harvey wondered, too. She was a sporadic comics and graphic novel reader—off and on since her college years—and considered herself a fan rather than creator. Then Yona’s friend and author of Marvel’s current Black Panther run, Ta-Nehisi Coates, tapped Yona on the shoulder, asking her to try her hand at comics script writing for World of Wakanda. He thought a poet writing comics would be a fun experiment. Yona thought it would be madness. It turned out to be a little bit of both. Whether you’re a comics fan, zine maker, occasional reader or simply curious about comics, you’ll want to hear about Yona’s adventures. She’ll discuss what it’s like collaborating with accomplished female artists like Afua Richardson (All Star Batman, Mad Max, World of Wakanda) and Alitha Martinez (Iron Man, Archie Comics, World of Wakanda), Marvel’s decision to diversify its comics content and creators, her experience working on a Marvel creative team, the process of learning-as-you-go script writing, and more. She may not have all the answers, but she welcomes your questions and conversation. Join us!  We'll also have a free raffle for a signed copy of Black Panther & The Crew!

This event is a part of the Lebo Comic Fest Series that includes the following programs:

John Kelley and the Toonseum 10/12/17 at 7:00 p.m.

Yona Harvey: Visible Pictures: Tales of Comics Script Writing 10/23/17 at 7:00 p.m.

Wayne Wise: Suffrage and Sappho 75 Years of Wonder Woman 11/16/17 at 7:00 p.m.

Lebo Comics Fest: Learn, Make, Play 11/18/17 6:30-8:30 p.m.

 

Yona Harvey is the author of Hemming the Water, winner of the Kate Tufts Discovery Award in poetry. Her poems and essays have been anthologized in The Force of What’s Possible: Accessibility and the Avant-Garde and Writing Away the Stigma: Ten Courageous Writers Tell True Stories About Depression, Bipolar Disorder, ADHD, OCD, PTSD & more.  She contributed to Marvel's World of Wakanda, a companion series to the bestselling comic, Black Panther.  She also co-wrote Marvel's Black Panther and The Crew.  She is the inaugural winner of the Lucille Clifton Legacy Award in poetry from St. Mary's College of Maryland.

Irish Gaelic Club

Beginners’ Irish

 

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

This  first hour of this course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

The second half of this course will be focused on advanced topics.

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

 

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

 

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

AARP Drivers Safety Class

THIS IS A TWO-DAY CLASS (OCT. 13 &20); 6 HOURS TOTAL.

For Questions about the class, call the instructor, John Spavaro, at 412-531-5690

Space is limited!
$15 for AARP members and $20 for nonmembers (payable at the first class)

Cars have changed. So have traffic rules, driving conditions and the roads you travel every day, yet some drivers age 50-plus have never looked back since they got their first driver's license.
By taking a driver safety course you'll learn the current rules of the road, defensive driving techniques, and how to operate your vehicle more safely in today's increasingly challenging driving environment. You'll learn how you can manage and accommodate common age-related changes in vision, hearing, and reaction time. In addition, you'll learn:

 

  • How to minimize the effects of dangerous blind spots
  • How to maintain the proper following distance behind another car
  • The safest ways to change lanes and make turns at busy intersections
  • Proper use of safety belts, air bags, antilock brakes and new technology found in cars today
  • Ways to monitor your own and others' driving skills and capabilities
  • The effects of medications on driving
  • The importance of eliminating distractions, such as eating, smoking and using a cellphone

After completing the course, you will have a greater appreciation of driving challenges and a better understanding of how to avoid potential collisions and injuring yourself or others.

About the course

The AARP Smart Driver Course, offered by AARP Driver Safety, is the nation’s largest classroom and online driver safety course and is designed especially for drivers age 50 and older.
