When he put forth the theory of evolution, Charles Darwin faced criticism from one of the greatest physicists of his day—the renowned Lord Kelvin. According to Kelvin's state-of-the-art (for the Victorian era) calculations of the age of the Sun and the Earth, there hadn't been enough time for life to evolve like Darwin described! In the years before Einstein, the public viewed Lord Kelvin as the iconic scientist, inventor, and guiding light of the Industrial Revolution. Indeed, his work in thermodynamics led to the notion of absolute zero and the temperature scale named in his honor. Come hear how this leading mathematician and physicist became known as one of the great curmudgeons of history. And Kelvin wasn't the only one—we'll share more about the annoying but important role of other curmudgeons in the development of modern cosmology. Sean Gavin, Associate Chair of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Wayne State University presents this drama.

There is an epidemic that no one is talking about outside of Indian Country. Within our community we are dealing with an epidemic of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. With numbers so high that they are unreported, how do we deal with it all? Why aren't there concrete statistics? Why do the crimes go unreported? What has the FBI done to help with this epidemic? What does “Missing White Woman Syndrome” have to do with this? Let's talk some history and try to find out why this is an issue and what we can do in and out of Indian Country to make sure that our sisters, mothers, daughters, wives, girlfriends, women, don't become a statistic. Presented by historian and activist Heather Bruegl.

Mr. Cohan’s new book POWER FAILURE: The Rise and Fall of an American Icon covers the dramatic rise—and unimaginable fall—of America's most iconic corporation by New York Times bestselling author and pre-eminent financial journalist William D. Cohan. No company embodied American ingenuity, innovation, and industrial power more spectacularly and more consistently than the General Electric Company. The company embodied both the muscle of American business— entrepreneurial drive, inventiveness, financial legerdemain— and its weaknesses— unchecked egos, grandiosity, hubris, and corruption. The story of GE’s glorious rise and distressing fall is not just the story of a finance powerhouse. It’s a cautionary tale about blind ambition and trying to live up continuously to a flawed corporate mythology.
