GMO OMG Free Screening!

Join us for our free screening of GMO OMG on Thursday, January 29 at 7:00PM at the EMW Bookstore.

Who controls the future of your food?GMO-OMGexplores the systematic corporate takeover and potential loss of humanity's most precious and ancient inheritance: seeds. Has the global food system been irrevocably hijacked? Is there still time to reclaim its purity, protect biodiversity and save ourselves?

GMO-OMGdirector and concerned father Jeremy Seifert is in search of answers. How do GMOs affect our children, the health of our planet, and our freedom of choice? And perhaps the ultimate question, which Seifert tests himself: is it even possible to reject the food system currently in place, or have we lost something we cant gain back? InGMO-OMG, the encroaching darkness of unknown health and environmental risks, chemical toxins, and food monopoly meets with the light of a growing global movement to take back what we have lost.

2015 International Women's Day

5:30-6:00 p.m. Reception

6:00-7:00 p.m. Private Screening of "Positively Beautiful"*

7:00 -7:45 p.m. Panelists

7:45-8:00 p.m. Q&A

In South Africa five strangers facing shame and potential death from AIDS form an unlikely friendship. It transforms them from ordinary citizens to extraordinary activists. They struggle against stigma and fear; suicide and isolation. At the height of the epidemic they form a network for people living with HIV. As friends and family die, and leaders deny the existence of HIV, they fight harder. Fifteen years later, against all odds, they are still alive. Their friendship becomes a remarkable story: a quiet victory of meaningful, beautiful lives in an evolving South Africa. It gives strength in their struggles: of having children, fighting cancer, and being lesbian in South Africa. Positively Beautiful is a story about life and love in the age of HIV.

* This is a private pre-screening of this amazing film. There will be a chance to tell the filmmaker what you think and help with the finishing touches of the film!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

A bit about our panelists:

Diveena Cooppan is a first time filmmaker from South Africa. Inspired by her work in HIV and her friendship with members of the HIV activist community, the idea of Positively Beautiful was conceived. Diveena and her friends recognized the need for a film that told the personal story of living in South Africa in the age of HIV. One that was not created primarily to educate but rather to share with South Africans and the world the very real experience of living with a life threatening disease. So Diveena, formerly an Occupational Therapist working in psychiatry in South Africa and London and a public health practitioner stepped into the world of documentary film making to produce and direct Positively Beautiful. Diveena is also a veteran professional dancer and is currently based in Washington, DC.

Great Decisions - Privacy in the Digital Age

The idea of privacy has undergone significant changes in the digital age, as has the idea of privacy harm. Fearful of British spying, influence and intervention, the founding fathers granted citizens significant protections in the Constitution. Now, the tables have turned: Concerns about what some see as a U.S. dragnet and unwarranted privacy intrusions have compelled other countries to revamp their own privacy protections. Legislation, both at home and abroad, hasnt kept pace with technological developments, leaving some wondering if privacy as we know it is long dead.

Great Decisions - Human Trafficking in the 21st Century

Human trafficking represents a multibillion in international trade per annum and continues to be one of the fastest growing criminal industries. While undeniably a global phenomenon, the U.S., as one of the worlds leading human trafficking importers, bears a special responsibility to combat this practice. The U.S. and the international community have adopted various treaties and laws to prevent trafficking, but to truly understand and combat the issue, they must find the root causes enabling traffickers to exploit millions of victims.

Great Decisions - India Changes Course

Fed up with corruption, dynastic policies and ineffective public services, Indian voters catapulted Narenda Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party to power in the countrys 2014 elections. For voters, Modi embodied real change and an India that wasnt stumbling, but running, to greatness. But for the U.S., change in India brings its own set of unknowns, heralding an age ruled by a prime minister new to national office and other policymakers who have been out of the public eye for a decade. Now, the U.S. has to determine how to best secure its interests as India asserts itself on the world stage.

Great Decisions - Russia and the Near Abroad

As calls for closer ties with the EU failed to be met, Ukrainians took to the streets in in November 2013. As the movement later known as the Euromaidan, or Euro Square, pulled western Ukraine closer to its European neighbors, another powerful force threatened to tear away the countrys eastern half: Russia. Putins pushback against European expansionism has the West wondering: If Putins Russia isnt afraid to take an aggressive stance against Europeanization in Ukraine, what does that mean for the rest of Russias neighbors?

Great Decisions - Sectarianism in the Middle East

Many of the current conflicts in the Middle East have been attributed to sectarianism, a politicization of ethnic and religious identity. From the crisis in Iraq and Syria to the tension between Iran and Saudi Arabia, the struggle between Sunni and Shii groups for dominance is tearing apart the region and shows no signs of abating. But for all the religious discourse permeating the conflict, much of its roots are political, not religious. How does sectarianism fit into a larger narrative of the Middle East? How have governments manipulated sectarian differences? And finally, what is the U.S. doing about it?

Achieving Nonlinear Growth in Academia: Lessons for Your Company

"Achieving Nonlinear Growth in Academia: Lessons for your Company

Linear growth defines the present as the baseline and seeks to grow as a percentage of the present, e.g. We will grow 5 percent gross revenue. Nonlinear growth, however, defines the future as the baseline and seeks to make a radical shift from the past.

Are you managing for linear growth or nonlinear growth?

In this series we will learn from masters of nonlinear growth. Join us in an interactive workshop for CEOs and Business Owners interested in alternative and different ways to grow. We promise a nonlinear experience!

This is the first of a series on how CEOs can achieve nonlinear growth in 2015. Dont miss out!Keynote Speaker: Dr. Christopher E. Hopey, President, Merrimack College

Dr. Christopher E. Hopey has been president of Merrimack College for four years. Dr. Hopey directed a range of investments and initiatives that have advanced Merrimacks position as a highly ranked, internationally respected, selective comprehensive Catholic college.

Dr. Hopey engaged the College community in a collaborative strategic planning process to help Merrimack develop a clear vision for the future. The outcome was Merrimacks strategic plan called, The Agenda for Distinction, which focuses on five strategic goals that altered the trajectory of the College by transforming it from an institution of promise to one of achievement.

Join us for a lively discussion in how this Academic Entrepreneur achieved the largest freshman class enrollment in its history this fall.

Comedy - Father Aloysius Misgivings

Father Aloysius Misgivings - Join Father Patrick Aloysius Misgivings for this divine presentation of stories and one liners about growing up Catholic. From miracles and marriage counseling to bazaars and birth control, nothing escapes the good fathers razor sharp Irish wit. This hilarious, interactive comedy includes a collection, a raffle and even an actual Bingo game.

Dave Kane, born January 26, 1948, is a performer, comedian, published author, and radio talk show host beloved by New Englanders for over 40 years. Dave was born in Pawtucket, Rhode Island and currently still makes his home in the Ocean State.

Nicknamed "The Pitbull of comedy" in the 1980s during his time as a stand-up comedian, Dave is known for his passionate stances on social issues, urging people to stand up for what they believe in and to take action in the face of injustice. One of Dave's favorite phrases is the well known quote, often attributed to Irish philosopher Edmund Burke, "All that is necessary for evil to exist is for good people to do nothing."

Dave Kane has been involved in the field of radio for over 40 years, beginning in 1962, when he was 14 years old. His first radio-related job was at Pawtucket's WPAW where he acted as an intern for radio legend Chuck Stevens (an inductee into the Rhode Island Radio Hall of Fame). Dave's first paying radio job at the now defunct WKFD in North Kingstown lasted for just one day.

His involvement in talk radio began in the early 1970s when he worked as a producer for WJAR radio and filled in for the other hosts. From that point forward, Dave carved a successful niche in Rhode Island talk radio, spending time at various stations throughout the region, including WPRO and WHJJ, the two of largest and most powerful talk stations in the state. In 2005, Dave joined WNRI in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, becoming a weekday host in the 10am to 12pm time slot. Dave parted ways with the station in 2009. Starting in January of 2014, Dave returned to the airwaves as a weekend host on WARL in Attleboro, Massachusetts in the 8-10am time slot on Saturdays.

Dave is well-known regionally for his one-man show "Misgivings", which features the character of Father Misgivings, an Irish Catholic priest. In the performance, which features "belly laughs, blessings, blarney and Bingo," Father Misgivings tells stories and relates his views about the idiosyncrasies of growing up and living life as a Roman Catholic. Dave performs the show multiple times each year, usually in the form of a dinner theater, in venues throughout New England.

Dave's fundraising and charity efforts include Misgivings (which is available as a fundraiser), Just for Funds (a concept in which the venue and entertainment are provided for fundraising organizations), and Christmas is For Kids. Christmas is For Kids provides gifts to an average of 800 to 1,000 children in need each Christmas. It was started in 1983 by the Attleboro Council for Children.

At age 18, Dave's son, Nicholas O'Neill, was the youngest victim of The Station nightclub fire of 2003 in which 100 people lost their lives. In the wake of this tragedy, Dave became a strong proponent of fire safety awareness and the enforcement of strict laws for the administration of fire safety inspections on public buildings. Dave was publicly opposed to Rhode Island Attorney General Patrick C. Lynch's handling of the criminal investigations of those involved in negligence leading to the fire.

Enlightening Conversations

ENLIGHTENING CONVERSATIONS PRESENTS: ENLIGHTENMENT: IDEALIZED OR REAL?"

The Second Program in a Series in Which Psychoanalysts and Buddhist Teachers Speak Opening and Honestly About the Nitty-Gritty of Human Liberation.

Psychoanalysis and Buddhism reveal that the human personality is normally and habitually hard to manage. We are not fundamentally conscious and able to motivate ourselves (by our intentions or promises) straightforwardly. Instead, we are fundamentally conflicted, discontinuous, and unknown, even to ourselves. But this unconsciousness is also an opening to our creativity and wisdom, as well as our universal need for trust in relationship and friendship. Psychoanalytic therapies and Buddhist practices illuminate the ways in which human misery and pathology can be transformed into creative insight, tolerance, and compassion for our selves and others. In an environment of openness, mutual inquiry and discovery, Enlightening Conversations is a series of conversational conferences in which there will be no individual presentations. Instead, speakers will briefly introduce a topic, and then speak together in dialogue with each other and with the audience.

Through panels and small group conversations, these conferences engage all participants -- speakers and audience -- in reflective conversations about how our painful enactments and unspeakable desires can be studied and transformed. In this way, our symptoms, addictions, despair, fear, and longing can truly enrich our lives and expand our humanity.

Beginner Salsa Workshop 1 - Learn the Basics of Salsa! BAILAMOS!!!

Have you always wanted to learn Salsa but thought you couldn't? Maybe you think you've got two left feet? (I promise that you don't!) Or you thought it was too expensive? Well, now, here's your chance to learn to dance all the basic steps of Salsa in a single workshop for only $10. Where else could you learn all this for such a low price? Nowhere! But thanks to your friends at Free And Cheap Things in Boston (www.FACT-Boston.com), Boston's best Meetup group, you can learn it here. BAILAMOS!

First, NO PARTNER IS REQUIRED for this workshop. We will rotate partners throughout the event, so you do not need to bring your own partner. But if you *want* to bring a partner, you are both welcome to register. And you don't have to rotate partners if you don't want to.

Second, no prior dance experience is required. Absolute beginners are welcome!

So what will we cover in our two-hour workshop? We'll learn both the basic steps of Salsa and the basics of leading and following, as follows:

4 - 5pm : timing and flow of the dance, the basic steps (front and back basics, side-to-side basics, the right turn), the basic holding positions (open and closed), and the basics of leading and following.

5 -5:30pm : BREAK (for food, drink, phone calls, etc.)

5:30 - 6:30pm : review of the first hour's lesson, the left turn, and the cross-body lead (where the two dancers change places). And if things are going great, we'll cover the inside turn, where the follower does an extra left spin during the cross-body lead. We may even cover a few more things!

So, what will this course do for you? Once you master the steps in this course, you WILL be able to dance the basics of Salsa! This course will give you the proper foundation to learn far more advanced steps.
Don't wait! Sign up today!

We believe that the career paths that exist in the Massachusetts Life Science Industry are numerous, exciting, and rewarding and that it is imperative that students considering these careers be well informed regarding the areas that their education and training are relevant.

We focus on covering the various functional areas in the life sciences sector including, R&D, consulting, commercial, business development, marketing, clinical, regulatory, medical affairs, bioinformatics, systems biology, modeling, pharmacoeconomics, reimbursement, patient advocacy, market access, finance, legal, and operations. Most graduate students and post-docs are well prepared to take numerous directions in their careers, and it is our intent to provide a comprehensive understanding of the aptitudes and work environments that are associated with specific career paths, so that the individuals who attend these events can make more informed career decisions. We are also big believers in the power of connections and networking, so each seminar will have specific time set aside to meet the presenters and the attendees and to develop relationships that will be an asset to those in attendance.


The program has an average attendance of 80 individuals per event. Each event has a panel discussion comprised of industry leaders who provide an overview of the life sciences landscape and various career opportunities which exist in the industry.
