"Archaeologic Sites of the American Southwest," Dr. William Smith [B. Griffitts], Ford 122
Professor William Smith who, with interesting commentary and beautiful photography, acquainted us with archaeological discoveries in what is now Mexico, and, later, the possible site of mythical Atlantis and the Etruscan civilization, returns to provide a comprehensive review and travel guide to notable sites and artifacts of the ancient Anasazi, Hohokam, Mogollon and Sinagua of the American Southwest. The sites covered include: Pecos N.M., Bandelier N.M., Acoma N.M., Hovenweep Utah, and Wupatki Ariz.
Fabric of the Cosmos, Part 4, "Universe or Multiverse?" [G Beck], Ford 122
The final installment of Brian Greene's Cosmos series. Is our universe unique or could it be just one of many in an endless "multiverse" where copies of you, me, and everyone else may exist? This radical idea is getting some serious scientific attention, and could revolutionize our picture of he cosmos-and our place within it.
"Leftover Turkey," Don Gallagher, Ford 122

"ICL Members Up Close", Ford 122
This is a continuation of our very well received sessions from the last several terms. ICL is made up of a very interesting group of folks with fascinating backgrounds. In this session we will get to know a few of them a little better as we ask them to share an interesting story from their family, their work experience, or world experience. Today we will hear from six of our colleagues, who will each share a 15 minute story.
