CLASSES

Geology of Our National Parks and The Great Lakes Basin

Join Dr. Joy Mast, as she talks about the geology of our National Parks.  Dr. Mast will highlight how parks are formed by tectonic activity, mountain building, glaciation, and erosion.  The class will explore origins  of geologic features in America's national parks, including Death Valley, Grand Canyon, Mount Rainier, Yosemite, Olympic, Great Smokey Mountains, U. S. Virgin Islands, Hawaii Volcanos, Rocky Mountain, Glacier, and Denali.

Dr. Matthew Zorn will focus on the formation of the Great Lakes, some history of the waxing and waning of these water bodies in his interactive presentation.  He will take a look at Lake Michigan in a bit more depth.  Geology, weather, climate, and vegetation are just some of the aspects of the lakes that will be examined.

Thursdays  National Parks on June 14, 2018 and Great Lakes Basin on June 21, 2018 |  Details in one pdf  

Sunspots, Greenhouse Gases and Climate Change

Patrick Frendreis returns for his second class with ALL members.  In this class, he'll review methodologies such as computer modeling that scientists use to develop theories of atmospheric heating, the controversy over Anthropogenic Climate Change, and the role of the sun.  He'll, also, explain what is known about the extent of past climate changes and causal factors.  And finally, Patrick will examine what can realistically be done, if anything, about current atmospheric heating, and how much extra heating has taken place.

Prelude to the Civil War

This two-session class focuses on the territorial expansion accompanying the Mexican American War (1846-1848) and its explosive political aftermath.  Expanding the nation's territorial size also meant the potential extension of slavery into the West.  The American political system attempted to resolve this debate, but the politics of the 1850s merely exacerbated tensions over slavery.  With the South fearing the loss of their slaves and the North wanting to limit slavery's expansion, a war over slavery's future eventually occurred.

Day Trips 

Jesus Christ, Superstar at the Lyric Opera House

Jesus Christ, Superstar is a 1970 rock opera with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice.  The musical started as rock opera concept album before its Broadway debut in 1971.  The musical is sung through, with no spoken dialogue.  The story is loosely based on the Gospels' accounts of the last week of Jesus' life, beginning with the preparation for the arrival of Jesus and his disciples in Jerusalem and ending with the crucifixion.  It depicts political and interpersonal struggles between Judas Iscariot and Jesus that are not present in the Bible.  The rock opera was nominated for five Tony awards in 1972, and its many revivals have been consistently nominated for Best Revival of a Musical on Broadway and elsewhere.  Some religious groups have condemned the musical as blasphemous.  It was banned in South Africa and the Hungarian People's Republic.

Chicago Architecture From Three Perspectives:  Land, Air, and Sea

We are repeating a popular ALL day trip to Chicago.  Admire Chicago's famous architectural highlights by land, air, and sea as our step-on guide from the Chicago Architecture Foundation shows us Chicago's finest historic and modern landmarks, including the Main Campus of Illinois Institute of Technology.  This is an outstanding example of the work of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969), an educator and one of the 20th century's most influential architects.  Then we'll enjoy a delicious buffet lunch with stunning aerial views from the 95th floor of the Hancock Building.  Later we'll relax and cruise along the Chicago River as our docent provides an overview of the many and various building styles, with stories of the people who designed and built Chicago.

Have You Been Hacked?

"Cyber Threats and Scams:  What We Can Do to Protect Ourselves" - Jeff Wamboldt and Tyler Cochran of the Kenosha Police Department are the presenters.  Technology is a wonderful tool.  We use it all the time, in many ways.  But it can just as easily be used to steal not only your money but, also, your identity.  Learn how the Kenosha Police Department deals with the scams and other cyber security threats.

Not All Memories Are Good Ones...

"Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Is a Frightening Aftermath of War for Many" is presented by Michael Orban, a Vietnam Combat Veteran, Author, Speaker and Mentor.  Combat exposes service members to things that change them in ways they could not have imagined.  Mr. Orban says his year in the jungles of Viet Nam made him a good soldier but doomed him to a deep emotional and spiritual darkness that "ravaged my mind and soul".  Then, time in Africa with the Peace Corps may have saved him, but he returned home to find that PTSD was waiting for him, and would stay for the next 45 years.  He finally found effective treatment at a VA hospital and now devotes his life to helping those coping with PTSD.  His book, his writing, and his presentations are designed to fearlessly contront PTSD with a goal to help provide solutions.

Guess Who's Coming to Dinner!

S. and Wisconsin, and the urban wildlife we currently see in our area.

The World Thru the Eyes of a Historian/Journalist
