    This class will be the first of a two part course on World War ll. In this class we will briefly discuss the events leading up to the war, while never forgetting that though the war started for us in America in 1941, it had been going on in Europe for two years when we became involved. In Part l we will cover the causes of the war and its major events leading up to D-Day 1944. Military campaigns, world leaders and the American home front will be the main focus of this course. As usual class participation will be encouraged and this will be especially relevant, since many students actually lived through this period. Due to the nature of this subject, graphic details and language will be used. Note: The War in the Pacific will be covered in a later course at a date to be determined by students.

Although we will have to limit our scope in this short survey course, we plan to touch on the basic principles of: A. Ancient Indigenous and Mystery traditions B. The Hindu and Buddhist traditions. C. The three Abrahamic traditions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam

    This classic novel written by Nigerian author Chinua Achebe, depicts traditional Ibo culture of southeastern Nigeria prior to the European arrival. It also describes the impact of British colonial rule on the Ibo. To enhance our enjoyment of the novel, this presentation introduces Senior Learners to background information on Ibo society and culture and a summary of the plot of the novel , characters and setting (no spoilers!). It also features a video interview with its Nigerian author. This engaging, concise and inexpensive novel is available commercially or at the public library. Students should acquire and read this short, provocative novel before the discussion the following week. This discussion provides opportunities to share personal reactions to the novel: e.g., the significance of the title, the nature of Ibo culture, Ibo responses to colonial rule, and how Things Fall Apart might compare to classics of western literature.

    * Wednesday
    * 20-sep-17 to 25-oct-17
    * 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM
    * $30.00

    This course examines scientific evidence to substantiate claims of the existence of a universal god or GOD. It looks at the historical conflicts between emerging science and claims of the existence of such a god and how attempts have been made to integrate the scientific theories and faith in a god. We will examine unique characteristics of our earth that permit life and presence of humans and the likelihood that there are other locations in this or alternative universes of such goldilocks zones which would permit life as we know it. We will look at brain functions of those who experience spirituality and near death experiences and even death. Finally we will look at the relationships between these elusive concepts and a god and consciousness and attempt to see if there is any consensus that there is sufficient scientific evidence to reasonably conclude that God exists or is merely a matter of faith.

    * Tuesday
    * 3-oct-17 to 17-oct-17
    * 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM
    * $12.00

    This course will start by focusing on the Roman Occupation through the archeology of the forts, vici and villas. It will then look at what happened when the Romans abandoned Britain in the early fifth century. This course is the sixth in a series of courses about how geology and archeology provide our best understanding of Ancient Britain Before the Middle Ages. It is a period during which there is little written history. Furthermore, modern archeology and genetic testing have revealed that much of the early written history of Britain was distorted and basically wrong.

    The ocean is a source of wonder, delight, sustenance, economic benefit, and awe in the face of its overwhelming mystery and power.

A companion course deals with life in the ocean. Both courses are based in part on one of The Great Courses: Oceanography: Exploring Earth's Final Wilderness, by Professor Harold J. Tobin at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

    * 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

    Why Asia? First, to gain a better appreciation of Asia’s size and historical significance. Half the world lies in Asia and Asia developed long before Europe and was the most advanced part of the world for more than 2000 years. Second, to gain an understanding of the causes and consequences of Asia’s phenomenal rise the past 50 years. Thirdly, to explore Asia’s role in the future as the most populous and possibly the most powerful region of the world – in a word Easternization. By 2025 two thirds the world’s population will live in Asia compared to 12% in the West. Asia now spends more on armaments and troops than Europe and in a decade or two will surpass the West’s global power. While China’s rise will be a key topic, other major countries of India, Korea, and Japan, which have territory rivalries with China and are allies of the West will also be covered. We will focus on the major turning points that have transformed this vast region and repositioned it for an expanded role in future world affairs.

    ### Dark Age Britain as Revealed by Archaeology and Genetics
    * Bob Holloran
    * Tuesday
    * 28-nov-17 to 05-dec-17
    * 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM
    * $8.00

    After the Romans Legions left Britain there was supposedly a Dark Age of chaos and an invasion of the Angles and the Saxons that displaced the indigent population of Britains. Recent archeological and genetic research has rewritten both aspects of supposed British history, as you will learn in this course. It is the seventh in a series of courses about how geology and archeology provide our best understanding of Ancient Britain Before the Middle Ages. It is a period during which there is little written history. Furthermore, modern archeology and genetic testing have revealed that much of the early written history of Britain was distorted and basically wrong. This course will be based on episodes from the British documentaries, including an archeology reality show called Time Team.
