Screening of “Greedy Lying Bastards”

Greedy Lying BastardsFrom Aly Raboff ’16:

This Thursday (tomorrow) Climate Ambassadors is putting on a film screening of the outspoken documentary Greedy Lying Bastards.

It’s a film about the “stalled efforts to tackle climate change despite the consensus in the scientific community that it is not only a reality but also a growing problem that is placing us on the brink of disaster.” The film looks at how big industry (especially Koch bros) has created a “campaign of lies” to oppose the reality of climate change.

Be Mindful: A Spiritual Course

medi

I took this course last semester and it was fantastic. You should definitely take it if you have the time. If not, make time for it!

From Chukwuemeka Uwakaneme ’16:

The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life invites you to be mindful of mindfulness for a non-credit six-week course:

Feeling stressed, looking for spirituality? Here is a solution for you.

During this 6-week non-credit course, students will be introduced to various techniques of mindfulness practice and spiritual awareness, including sitting meditation and yoga. These modalities are designed to aid in stress and anxiety reduction, and when practiced diligently, may also offer opportunities for greater self-awareness and personal
development. The goal is to give students a spiritual toolbox that is portable, replicable, and sustainable. Students will gain an understanding of the roles these practices can play in leading a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life.

The first class is on Monday 9/30/2013 and goes from 6:00 to 8:00 PM.

Sign up here.

Date: Monday, September 30th, 2013
Time: 6 – 8 pm

Two Sided Story Film Screening

From Sarah Cassel ’13:

In the film, Emmy award director, Tor Ben Mayor follows a group of 27
Palestinians and Israelis who meet under the frame of a unique project
called “History through the Human Eye” led by Parents Circle-Families
Forum – bereaved Palestinian and Israelis for Peace and
Reconciliation.

The project’s goal is to acknowledge the narrative of the other.
Together they create the conflict mosaic. Among them include Bereaved
families, Orthodox Jews and religious Muslims, settlers, ex soldiers
in the Israeli army, ex security prisoners, citizens of the Gaza
strip, kibbutz members, second generation holocaust survivors, non
violent activists and more. Each and every one holds his own
historical truth, and carries with him his own emotional baggage.

The movie will be followed by a panel discussion with one
representative from each sponsoring group.

Co-sponsored by: Students for Justice in Palestine, J Street U, and
Wesleyan United with Israel

When: Tuesday, April 30th, 7:30 – 9pm
