Goings Out Season

We are in the midst of Goings Out Season.  The best College of Charleston lectures are in February and March.  I’ve not been able to post as much as I would like.

What have we been doing?  Ahhhh.

1.  Darwin Week’s Lecture series – posted here and here.

2. Blood Sucking Flies – posted here.

3.  5 Gyres Project – website here.  I would like to see more science on the hydrophilic nature of many pesticides and their relationship with plastics in the ocean.

4. Far Horizons: Scale, Society, and Complexity in First Millennium BCE South India – India went basically from the Stone Age to the Iron Age without the transition through bronze age.  Dr. Carla Sinopoli presented an excellent lecture. Information here.

5.  Freedom’s Teacher:  Septima Clark – Dr. Charron spoke about this Charleston-based amazing educator and her civil rights contributions. A most excellent carrot cake was served, too.

In the midst of this, there have been trips to the library, ceramics painting, music lessons for DW, and class-work to boot.
