"ICL Coffee: Welcoming Autumn," [Dee Iltis and Priscilla Hibbard], Zoom

Hop aboard the Zoom Express tomorrow at 10:00 sharp for a journey
    into the woods ... a park ... your back yard to discover early Fall.

    It's time for our first ICL Coffee of the semester, "Welcoming Autumn."

With special guest appearances by our poets laureate, Betty and Vernelle.

Here are some ideas of what to bring along for the journey:
      -- a mug of coffee, tea, or favorite beverage (hot chocolate for me)
                and a munchie
     -- thoughts to share with your table mates
               remembrances of autumns past ... Halloween tricks ...
                     what you're looking forward to
               experiences from the past month
                     surviving the wildfires and great smokey skies
               whatever tickles your fancy!

"Great Decisions: China's Road into Latin America," Doug Lusk [Jeanette Flaming], Zoom

We invite you to view the DVD before our session on the Foreign Policy Association website. The website will also provide additional information on Chapter 5 of the text resource. As the Trump administration continues to withdraw from the world stage, China is looking to fill the void. Until recently, China had little interest in Latin America. Now it is transforming the region. Great Decisions investigates this new alignment and the prospect of direct competition with the U.S. How does Latin America fit into China's "One Belt, One Road" plan? How will the relationship with China affect the region? Should the U.S. be concerned about China's growing "sphere of influence"? Please be prepared for discussion. You may select something that seems of particular interest to you, share a question, etc.

"Great Decisions: U.S. Relations with the Northern Triangle," Jeanette Flaming, Zoom

We invite you to view the DVD before this session on the Foreign Policy Association's website. The website will also provide additional information for the text resource on Chapter 6. Combating illegal immigration has become a priority of the Trump administration. The Northern Triangle of Central America, made up of the fractured societies of Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, is a special target of the administration, which holds the nations responsible for the large flow of migrants from Latin America to the U.S. With funds from the U.S. cut, how can the Northern Triangle countries curtail migration? Please be prepared for discussion. You may select something that seems of particular interest to you, share a question, etc.
