MARC FRANK - Live from Havana, Cuba!
Sixty years of the U.S. embargo, hurricanes, blackouts, and shortages have all left their marks on Cuba. Marc Frank is an American journalist who has lived and worked in Cuba for nearly 30 years. In addition to writing for Reuters and the Financial Times, Frank has written Cuban Revelations:Behind the Scenes in Havana, one of the most authoritative and readable books on Cuba,. He writes about the historical context for the revolution and examines the social, political and economic issues that have shaped Cuba today. He will talk about the achievements of the Cuban people as well as the challenges they face, and will share his experience as an American living in Cuba through all the turmoil of the past several decades.

                            ALBERT STRAUS
                                        The Ultimate Sustainable Dairy
Albert Straus is the CEO of the Straus Family Creamery in Marin and Sonoma Counties, the first certified organic dairy in the United States. Always seeking better and more sustainable ways to work with the land, Straus was also the first US commercial dairy to use seaweed to cut down on the cows' methane emissions. This resulted in a 52% reduction of methane emissions --- sometimes even going as high as a 92% reduction. An excerpt from the Straus Family Creamery website: "From the methane digester that powers electric vehicles at the Straus Dairy Farm to pursuing ways to eliminate fossil fuel-based plastic packaging, we are continually seeking new ways to reduce our impact on the planet." A model dairy promoting sustainable practices and land stewardship, they also support small organic family farms up and down the coast of California by purchasing products from them. The Straus Family Creamery produces the highest quality products while practicing exceptional business ethics. Albert Straus holds a BA in dairy science from Cal Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo.

                             RICHARD HEINBERG
The Great Unraveling: Navigating the Polycrisis of Environmental and Social Breakdown
This program will be based on Heinberg's recent paper by the same title, which is intended to help the general public -- but particularly academics and researchers, environmental and social justice non-governmental organizations and their funders, and the media -- recognize what the Great Unraveling is, what is means for both human civilization and the global ecosystem, and what we can do in response. The paper (and program) calls attention to four main things:

1. The Alarming, rapidly changing environmental and social conditions of the Great Unraveling.
2. The need to grapple with complexity, uncertainty, and conflicting priorities -- hallmarks of the Great Unraveling.
3. The need to maintain social cohesion within societies and peaceful relations between them during the Great Unraveling, while implementing key changes in collective behavior and managing the negative consequences of past failures to act.
4. The personal competencies that are needed to understand what's happening during the Great Unraveling and to respond constructively, primarily by building household and community resilience for this precarious time.

                                   DAVID TALBOT

We will commemorate the 60th Anniversay of JFK's Assassination
with an update on the latest evidence regarding this tragedy. David Talbot has done the most extensive research on the topic and has examined all the later-released papers under the Freedom of Information Act. His books, Brothers (about the Kennedys) and The Devil's Chessboard (about the nefarious Dulles brothers) provide an excellent history of the times and will be available at the event. More information soon.
