Fake News: What's the Real Story?
Monday, September 17th at 7:00 PM
Warped, misleading or outright false "news" is a detriment to free societies. To minimize its impact, news organizations can clarify and broadcast their missions, and consumers can exercise judiciousness and discernment. Even though fake news has always existed, this is a new environment in which internet economics, political rhetoric, and propaganda all challenge the news consumer in ways they never have before. Join Randall Mikkelsen for a presentation and discussion on this phenomenon and learn coping strategies that can help.
The Science and History of the Great New England Hurricane of 1938
Tuesday, September 11th at 6:30 PM
On September 21, 1938 one of the most powerful storms of the twentieth century came unannounced into the lives of New Yorkers and New Englanders, leaving utter devastation in its wake. The Great Hurricane, as it came to be known, changed everything, from the landscape and its inhabitants' lives, to Weather Bureau practices, to the measure and kind of relief New Englanders would receive during the Great Depression and the resulting pace of regional economic recovery. Join us for a presentation by Lourdes B. Avilés, Ph.D., Professor of Meteorology and coordinator of the Meteorology Program at Plymouth State University.
