Theatre PHOENIX THEATRE: The Skin of Our Teeth @8pm 2013-11-07 20:00:00
Description

THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH

By Thornton Wilder
Directed by Linda Hardy

Enter New Jersey suburbia: home of the perfect middle class family, George, his wife Maggie, their children Gladys and Henry (previously known as Cain?), and their pet dinosaur. George is the inventor of the alphabet, the wheel, and the multiplication tables – he’s the pick of the human race! But can the family survive the ravages of ice ages, global warming, storms, floods, depressions and war? Absurdly funny and very profound, this 1943 Pulitzer Prize-winning satire from the author of Our Town takes us on a wild and raucous tour through the ages.  Revolutionary when first written, The Skin of Our Teeth is a play for our time.

Lecture/Seminar CCCBE Speaker Series: The Gordian Knot of Social Economy? 2013-11-07 16:00:00
Description

The CCCBE Speaker Series presents: 

The Gordian Knot of Social Economy? An integrative values based understanding of social business and social impact:  A conversation with Dr. J.J. McMurtry.

In Canada, and indeed around the world, there has been a proliferation of practices that can broadly constructed as Social Economy activity.  However, despite broad agreement that Social Economy activities are growing and indeed are crucial to a twenty-first century economy, neither academics nor activist agree on exactly what the boarders of this activity are.  This talk will unpack the practical and theoretical importance of understanding the Social Economy through an integrative values framework and will address the intersection between social economy and social enterprise.  

Dr. J.J. McMurty is the Graduate Program Director of the Social and Political Thought Program and an Associate Professor in the Business and Society Program at York University.

Film "Salinger" 2013-11-07 19:00:00
Description

Director: Shane Salerno   USA, 2013, 124 minutes; PG

Portrait of the writer as an obsessive perfectionist, a traumatized war veteran, a fancier of young females, a cultural icon. Shane Salerno’s documentary is all of these things. What emerges is a portrait of an enigma. In the nine years Salerno spent researching and filming, he interviewed a dizzying array of writers, editors, critics, ex-lovers, and fans to try to pierce the shroud of privacy that J.D. Salinger drew around himself. Rich in anecdote, thanks to an interweaving of rare photos and film footage of the elusive Salinger with its talking-head segments, “Salinger’s” central thesis is that writing was the all-consuming passion of the author of “The Catcher in the Rye.” The movie tells us long-withheld works will be published beginning in 2015. –Seattle Times

Other Wisdom Jesus 2013-11-07 18:30
Description

Come join me as we explore the teaching of Jesus of Nazareth, the spiritual master who stands at the fountainhead of western spirituality.

In this spiritual journey, we will not be re-iterating the stereo-typical image of Jesus.

We will instead focus on Jesus as a teacher of wisdom, of the perennial philosophy that is designed to transform consciousness from ego-centered concern to the experience of the unity and inter-connectedness of all reality.

Through various spiritual practices and exercises, we will explore the benefits of this wisdom teaching:

Does it lead to happiness? Does it help me figure my life’s purpose?

Does it lead to compassion? Does it lead to higher consciousness?

Does it awaken me to mindfulness and the sacred reality of the cosmos?

The source text for this spiritual exploration is Cynthia Bourgeault’s The Wisdom Jesus: Transforming the Heart and Mind – a New Perspective on Christ and His Message.

Hosted by Henri Lock, United Chaplain, Multifaith Services

Lecture/Seminar Classical Association of Vancouver Island 2013-11-07 19:30:00
Description

The Third Meeting of the 2013/2014 Academic Year will take place on Thursday, November 7th at 7:30 pm in Clearihue A212.

Professor John Fitch, University of Victoria, will present a lecture entitled "What's in a Name? Latin and Greek in our Names for Wildflowers.”

 Names contribute to our ability as humans to differentiate between things and recognize them. As the ancient saying goes, nomina si pereunt, perit et cognitio rerum: if names fall away, the knowledge of things also falls away.

  All plants, cultivated and wild, are assigned a botanical name, the first name indicating the genus and the second the species. Take the name Penstemon nemorosus: the first element Penstemon tells that the plant belongs to a genus whose flowers have “five stamens”, while nemorosus indicates that this particular species grows “in woodland.” Most such names have Greek or Latin roots. Dr Fitch will discuss a selection of such names, with special reference to the wildflowers of British Columbia.

  The lecture will be accompanied by photographs illustrating the plant features to which the names refer. This talk is related to Dr Fitch’s recent book Wildflowers of the Coast.
