Climate Degradation and Local Preparedness with Michael Billingsley
Thursday, November 10 at 7 p.m.
Rapidly-warming Arctic oceans, melting Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets, and other big effects such as the warming of Russian and Alaskan permafrost tundra, are shifting ocean currents, affecting our health and changing our weather.These somewhat unpredictable changes have never occurred before in known human history. As it occurs, such degradation is going to challenge local patterns of weather, wildlife and insects, and may include more extreme rainfall, infestations of forests and problems we have never encountered before. Getting together and thinking ahead can solve and prepare for weather-caused local hazards and regional emergencies.

Best-selling Author, War Correspondent Sebastian Junger to Speak at Johnson State CollegeJohnson State College, College Hill Road, Johnson, VT, United Stateshttp://www.montpelierbridge.com/event/best-selling-author-war-correspondent-sebastian-junger-to-speak-at-johnson-state-college/Johnson State College, College Hill Road, Johnson, VT, United States
New York Times best-selling author Sebastian Junger will speak at Johnson State College 8-9:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 10.
The talk, $10 for the general public and free for military veterans and JSC students, faculty and staff, will be at the Dibden Center for the Arts.
Junger is the author of “Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging,” “The Perfect Storm,” “Fire,” “A Death in Belmont” and “War.”
For JSC’s first-year class this fall, “Tribe” is the “common book,” a shared reading chosen by a campus committee that is the basis of student discussions and college events throughout the fall semester.
Junger, a contributing editor to Vanity Fair and special correspondent for ABC, has produced several documentaries about war. He also founded and directs the New York-based nonprofit Reporters Instructed in Saving Colleagues (RISC), which teaches freelance journalists in war zones how to respond to medical emergencies on the battlefield. Junger established the organization a year after his colleague and friend Tim Hetherington was killed while covering the conflict in Libya; had other journalists on the ground been trained in medical interventions, Hetherington likely would have been saved. All proceeds from the event will benefit RISC.
Tickets may be purchased starting Oct. 31 by calling the Dibden Center box office at 802-635-1476.

Dinner with “Tevye” — A Film and A Feast10 Harrison Ave, Montpelier, VT, United Stateshttp://www.montpelierbridge.com/event/dinner-with-tevye-a-film-and-a-feast/10 Harrison Ave, Montpelier, VT, United States
Dinner inspired by 19th c. Russia by Helen Labun Jordan to be followed by the film “Tevye”, with an introduction by Rob Mermin.
DINNER: Artfully researched and prepared by food writer and VPR commentator Helen Labun Jordan, the festive meal will represent foods and recipes in the spirit of the Russian Pale of Settlement at the turn of the 20th century; a meal, perhaps, that Golde might have prepared for Tevye and their daughters. $20 per person/$36 per couple.
ABOUT THE FILM: The first Non-English Language Film to have been deemed “”culturally significant”” by the United States Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry, Maurice Schwartz’s 1939 adaptation of the classic Sholem Aleichem play centers on Khave, Tevye the Dairyman’s daughter, who falls in love with Fedye, the son of a Ukrainian peasant. Her courtship and marriage pit Tevye’s love for his daughter against his deep-seated faith and loyalty to tradition. Filmed in Poland by an American company, the film also has historical significance. Tevye’s world is a microcosm of the larger world of Russian Jewry in the early 1900s. (In Yiddish with English subtitles.)
“With all due respect to Zero Mostel and Topol in Fiddler on the Roof, it was Maurice Schwartz, the great Yiddish actor/director, who first showed Tevye the Dairyman in his full light as a mensch for all seasons. A rare opportunity to see Schwartz in what may have been his most magnificent role.”” -Judy Stone, San Francisco Chronicle
Film restoration & new English subtitles by The National Center for Jewish Film, www.jewishfilm.org.
Members – $20 single, $36 couple; Non-members – $25 single, $45 couple
*Film alone – $5 per person at the door. Film starts at 7:00 pm
