Great Decisions: U.S. Foreign Policy and Petroleum
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

What is the effect of U.S. petroleum security on foreign policy?  What is the effect of U.S. petroleum security on foreign policy? For 45 years, the country has alternated between periods of energy security and insecurity, sometimes able to wield petroleum as a useful instrument of foreign policy, sometimes not. Despite the so-called “energy revolution,” the U.S. today is by no means disentangled from foreign dependence and global trends. In order to be successful, policymakers must recognize both petroleum security circumstances and patterns in the relationship between petroleum and foreign policy. Facilitated by Matt Murray, Instructor in Government at Dutchess Community College.

Book: Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman.  Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he presents his fashioning of the primeval Norse myths into a novel. Gaiman stays true to the myths while vividly recreating the characters--the gods with their fiercely competitive natures, their susceptibility to being duped and to dupe others, and their tendencey to let passion ignite their actions--and making these long-ago myths breathe pungent life again. (adapted from author website)

Join Matthew Cantello in discovering the magic of tone, vibration and music while making some “crazy instruments” to be used in the wildest music jam you’ve ever heard! Along the way, we’ll also discover some of the scientific principles that make sound come alive – while having a load of fun in the process! Feel free to bring anything out of your recycling bin for use in the program! For families with children Pre-K and up. No registration required.
