    • Housing and Homelessness Advocacy Day 2013 Recap

      On Monday, February 11, over 600 people, representing 43 legislative districts converged upon Olympia for the 10th annual Housing and Homelessness Advocacy Day. This year’s theme was “2-11: Hear the Call for Housing and an End to Homelessness.” Advocacy Day helped connect advocates to elected officials in order to make the call to increase access to affordable housing and services and programs that prevent and end homelessness. This year's theme was chosen in recognition that our date (2-11) is the same phone number (2-1-1) that struggling individuals and families call when trying to get connected to critical resources. It was a full day planned for advocates, including teach-ins on our State Legislative Agenda, advocacy workshops, and even a rally on the north steps of the Capitol Building.

            Robert Costanza, the new head of Portland State University’s Institute for Sustainable Solutions and Josh Farley, professor of Ecological Economics at the Gund Institute from the University of Vermont are guests. Topics include a discussion of the idea that most indicators of growth is pinned to Gross Domestic Product. Human activities have become so large on the planet that the negative side effects are becoming significant. Humans have never before had that kind if influence on climate and the environment. Since 1969 we have doubled our consumption while measures of satisfaction of live as a whole have gone down. HOOKED ON GROWTH: This segment focuses on David Gardner, the producer of a new film to be released in early 2011. The film postulates that we have outgrown growth and that we must shift social, political, economic and population toward a more sustainable model. The discussion continues with an examination of the Genuine Progress Indicator (GPI) as the new measure of our well being as a nation.

                    Last of the Lawsonomists follows 93-year-old Merle Hayden, the last crusading member of Lawsonomy—a group founded by aviation pioneer and philosopher Alfred Lawson dedicated to economic and social justice for all at the expense of none. Compiling a wealth of Merle’s collected archival photos, films, and audio tapes, our film tells Lawson’s story through Merle’s, uncovering history on the verge of obliteration alongside the story of Merle’s unwavering dedication to this cause.

                      from Marin Science Seminar / Added

                      Marin Science Seminar Presentation: "Memory, Money, and Heat Sensing Underwear: Interdisciplinarity in Neuroscience" with Irina Rabkina, TLHS grad and junior at Scripps College (January 9, 2013) Download the flyer here. In just two years as an undergraduate neuroscience major, I have been introduced to a variety of tools used and topics studied under the umbrella of neuroscientific research. In this talk, I will focus on my work at the Center for Neuroeconomics Studies of the Claremont Graduate University during the spring and summer of 2012 and hopefully answer the question on everybody's mind: just what do underwear have to do with anything? (For a hint, check out the TED talk by Dr. Paul Zak, the director of the lab) Irina is a TLHS graduate ('10) who is currently majoring in Neuroscience at Scripps College. She is involved in both the Social Cognition & Decision Lab at Scripps, and the Center for Neuroeconomics Studies at Claremont Graduate University. Irina's interest in neuroscience sprang from a talk she heard through Marin Science Seminar, so she is excited to return to the source and share her experience.
