Novermber 1st "Paint your own Ceramic Christmas Tree"

Remember the ceramic Christmas trees your mom or grandma had in the 1960s or ’70s. They are one of the hot items enjoying popularity during every year’s holiday season. Many of these vintage trees were created in local ceramic shops by people, perhaps even your mother or grandmother, who wanted to fashion their own gifts or keepsakes. This is the same era when the popularity of ceramics reached its highest level, when artisans created all kinds of items from animal figurines to dinnerware. Unlike the ceramic Christmas tree, many of these items have little value today and hold very little interest as collectibles. Undoubtedly, nostalgia plays a role in the ceramic tree revival, stirring pleasant and happy memories of childhood Christmases, perhaps at Grandma and Grandpa’s house.



Now you can make your very own Christmas Tree!



$55.00 will get you all the supplies to make and complete your own 12 inch Christmas Tree (w/base)

Paul Sabin: The Bet "Our Gamble over Earth's Future," Betsy Wood Knapp '64 Lecture in the Social Sciences

The Betsy Wood Knapp '64 Lecture in the Social Sciences

Paul Sabin: The Bet: Our Gamble over Earth's Future

Are we headed for a world of scarce resources and environmental catastrophe, or will market forces and technological innovation yield greater prosperity? Paul Sabin, associate professor of history and American studies at Yale University, takes up this question in his book The Bet: Paul Ehrlich, Julian Simon, and our Gamble over Earth's Future. Using as a frame a highly publicized wager between celebrated biologist Paul Ehrlich and iconoclast economist Julian Simon over the future price of metals, Sabin examines the clash between environmentalists and their conservative critics and traces the origins of the political gulf that separates the two sides. The Bet was named a Best Science Book of 2013 by New Scientist.

ViVe Trail Run/Hike at The Fells

Join the ViVe life tribe in a fun trail run, exploring the east side of the Fells with fellow outdoor enthusiasts. The trails we run and hike will give you a view of Boston you've never seen before! The Fells is easily accesible from downtown Boston. We'll be on trails this weekend that will give you optimal views of downtown Boston in the fall.

Prerequisite: You have to be able to run 3 miles comfortably, have a sense of humor, be OK with stopping for a goofy "Instagram" moment (#vivelife), and bring your own gear. When the trail gets a little tricky, it turns into a fast hike. It's all about the fun, knowing when to let loose, and staying safe on the trail.

There will be pumpkin bread courtesy of Parziales Bakery in the North End of Boston.

Zammuto - Barnaby Bright
This event is 21 and over
Zammuto


Sprouting from the same mind that created the Books - one of the most acclaimed and innovative groups of the past decade - Zammuto marks a deep reinvention of the highly detailed, genre-defying spirit that made seminal albums such as The Lemon of Pink and The Way Out possible. Given the Books' success as an experimental collage-pop project, founder and namesake Nick Zammuto could have comfortably extended that thread. Instead he has given us a record that is progressive and forward-looking, intense and driven, with hugely varied rhythms and melodies.

The whispered, folksy vocals that became a trademark of the Books are for the most part shed in favor of an uncharacteristically confident, soaring delivery, often fueled by a wide array of vocal effects. The result is a man-machine sensitivity that ultimately enhances the songs' emotional intensity. With dense and beautiful string arrangements by Gene Back (the Books) and brain-warping drum performances by Sean Dixon, the radical and varied sound of Zammuto leaps out of speakers with a searing directness.

Making music that sounds and feels like no one else is nothing new for Zammuto, but making music that doesn't even sound like his own past is a whole other impressive feat in itself.
