Reasons to Be Cheerful (50m)

Episode # 417

     Human Have A Built In Negativity Bias which means we give bad news much more power than good. Would the Corona Crisis be an opportune time to reverse this tendency? Knowing this, how does this affect your expectations? We don’t have to limit this exercise to foreign policy, but if you were crafting policy, how could you make negative or low expectations from partners/opposition work to your advantage? If you’re like me, you’ll want to listen to the podcast more than once.

Indianapolis: The True Story of the Worst Sea Disaster in U.S. Naval History and the Fifty Year Fight to Exonerate an Innocent Man

Lynn Vincent & Sara Vladic - 2019

     Just after midnight on July 30, 1945, the USS Indianapolis is sailing alone in the Philippine Sea when she is sunk by two Japanese torpedoes. For the next five nights and four days, almost three hundred miles from the nearest land, nearly nine hundred men battle injuries, sharks, dehydration, insanity, and eventually each other. Only 316 will survive. For the first time Lynn Vincent and Sara Vladic tell the complete story of the ship, her crew, and their final mission to save one of their own in “a wonderful book…that features grievous mistakes, extraordinary courage, unimaginable horror, and a cover-up…as complete an account of this tragic tale as we are likely to have” (The Christian Science Monitor)
The discussion of this book will be Wednesday, May 27th @ 11:00 am with Mariemont Head Librarian, Kelly Hartman via Duo.

     What is a Book? The answer this question may not be as simple (or as straightforward) as you might expect!

Visit the teaching studio of the Cincinnati Book Arts Society (CBAS) to explore this question and learn a bit about the history of paper and books, tools and techniques used in book making and examine a variety of book models made by members of CBAS. Come prepared to make two or three simple book structures.

"Normal vs. Not Normal Aging

Teresa Youngstrom, RN

     This workshop will help members understand and recognize some of the distinct differences in “normal” and “not normal” aging by initially sharpening their observation and assessment skills. This course includes hands-on training methods, power point and engaging personal stories to establish greater knowledge of Dementia. There will be two physical dramatizations by Teresa, to allow the audience to formulate a mental picture of a normal brain managing a situation compared to a not normal brain managing the same situation. We will also address typical issues that occur from early stages of the condition, through mid-disease, and into the final care concerns that are part of the disease progression.
