Underwater Dreams, Film and Special Guest Cristian Arcega, Q&A

Speaker: Film and Special Guest Cristian Arcega

April 05th, 2015 10:00 am - Sunday


Location: Humanist Community Center, 627 W Rio Salado Parkway, Mesa

Underwater Dreams, written and directed by Mary Mazzio, and narrated by Michael Peña, is an epic story of how the sons of undocumented Mexican immigrants learned how to build an underwater robot from Home Depot parts. And defeat engineering powerhouse MIT in the process.

This is a local story. It happened 10 years ago at Carl Hayden High School in west Phoenix. These are the Dreamers who--with no money, experience, or documents--managed to win, beating the elite MIT robotics team with their robot, Stinky.

“The awards-worthy “Underwater Dreams” is by turns rousing and heartbreaking, and organically touches on important social issues” – Michael Ordoña, The San Francisco Chronicle.

Cristian Arcega, one of the Dreamers from the celebrated robotics team, will join us for the film viewing and Q&A.

Cristian is using crowd sourcing to raise money to be able to achieve his Electrical Engineering Degree. He already has the smarts. His dream is to start up an electronics business. Our short-sighted Arizona legislators require that Dreamers pay out-of-state tuition, making it all but impossible to pay for a college education. To read his story, go to Cristian Arcega: A Dream to Build. Please consider a donation.

Also, you can help support the robotics team at Carl Hayden High School at Donate Falcon Robotics. Contributions are eligible for Arizona Education Tax Credit.

Note: Because the hall will be set up for viewing the film the usual breakfast will not be served.

Doors will open at 9:00 am for socializing with coffee, tea, juice and finger snacks. Some table seating will be available on the patio. The film will begin at 10:00.

April 10th, 2015 7:00 pm - Friday

If you are one of the 7 lucky volunteers. you may pick up a copy of your selection from Doreen at the next Sunday Speaker Meeting (April 5), or I can email your copy to you--your choice. - Jennifer White

From Amazon:

To be a slave. To be owned by another person, as a car, house, or a table is owned. To live as a piece of property that could be sold...

This book is about how it felt. The words of black men and women who had themselves been slaves are here, accompanied by Julius Lester's historical commentary and Tom Feelings's powerful and muted paintings, To Be a Slave has been a touchstone in children's literature for over thirty years.

"It is rare to find a book that enables children to identify as compellingly with slaves as this one does." -Publishers Weekly

"From history-and for our time-there's nothing better than To Be a Slave." -The New York Times Book Review

Awards:
A 1969 Newbery Honor Book

Paradise Woodwinds in Concert

Speaker: Classical Revolution PHX

April 19th, 2015 10:00 am - Sunday


Location: Humanist Community Center, 627 W Rio Salado Pkwy, Mesa

Classical Revolution presents Paradise Winds woodwinds group and also a Renaissance music group in concert.

From the website at classicalrevolutionphx.org/
"Classical Revolution PHX (CRPHX) aims to bring chamber music to the masses, stripping away the classical music ‘pedestal’ by performing in unusual spaces and making the music accessible to the public. CRPHX is here to invigorate audience interest, break traditional expectations of ‘classical’ music, demonstrate the connection between humanity and classical music and present concerts involving traditional and non-traditional approaches.

The ‘Classical Revolution’ began in San Francisco in 2006 at the Revolution Cafe amongst a group of classical musicians wanting to bring the timeless themes of Haydn, Beethoven, and Shostakovich into a more casual coffeehouse setting. Their purpose was to break down the traditional expectations of classical music by making it truly accessible.

We wanted to bring some of the same energy here to Phoenix. It’s such a great concept and with so many classical music happenings in Phoenix, it just makes sense to take this music into the community – on public transportation, into pubs, open spaces, alternative venues, and beyond – and expose the art form to new audiences."

This event is free and open to the public.

Note: Because the hall will be arranged for concert seating, the usual breakfast will not be served. Doors will open at 9:00 for socializing with coffee, tea, juice and finger foods available with table seating on the patio. A short meeting will begin at 10:00 followed by the concert.

The House on the Borderland by William Hope Hodgson

Event: Book Club

April 25th, 2015 10:00 am - Saturday


Location: Humanist Community Center, 627 W Rio Salado Parkway, Mesa

Join us to discuss William Hope Hodgson's "The House on the Borderland".

from Amazon
The1908 classic tale of cosmic terror. A reclusive man and his sister, isolated in an ancient country house in Ireland, confront malignant creatures from deep in the Earth. . . . "I leant forward, and peered over, and down into the Pit, just beneath where I stood; and saw no further than a hideous, white swine-face, that had risen to within a couple of yards of my feet. Below it, I could make out several others. As the Thing saw me, it gave a sudden, uncouth squeal, which was answered from all parts of the Pit. A gust of horror and fear took me, and I discharged my gun right into its face. My sister was coming towards me. "Run!" I shouted. "Run, for your life!" . . . "The book is more than a creepy story," says Max Gersh in his introduction. "Hodgson understood that true horror is a glimpse of the cosmic."

HSGP will benefit if you purchase this book through the Amazon Smile program. Click on the image below.

Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer

Event: Book Club

May 23rd, 2015 10:00 am - Saturday


Location: Humanist Community Center, 627 W Rio Salado Parkway, Mesa

Join us to discuss Jon Krakauer's "Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Mt. Everest Disaster".

from Amazon
A bank of clouds was assembling on the not-so-distant horizon, but journalist-mountaineer Jon Krakauer, standing on the summit of Mt. Everest, saw nothing that "suggested that a murderous storm was bearing down." He was wrong. The storm, which claimed five lives and left countless more--including Krakauer's--in guilt-ridden disarray, would also provide the impetus for Into Thin Air, Krakauer's epic account of the May 1996 disaster.

The Old Spanish Trail

Speaker: Dr. Reba Wells Grandrud

June 07th, 2015 10:00 am - Sunday


Location: Humanist Community Center, 627 W Rio Salado Parkway, Mesa

The Old Spanish Trail

Is the name a misnomer? Was it old? Was it even Spanish? How did the Ute Trail, Apodaca Trail, Old Conejos Lane, or the Trappers' Trail fit into what is now called the Old Spanish National Historic Trail, the fifteenth National Historic Trail in the nation, the second National Historic Trail in Arizona? This presentation provides “tales of the trail,” fascinating stories of what has been called "the longest, crookedest, most arduous pack mule trailin the history of America.”

Reba Wells Grandrud, Ph.D., enjoys being a Road Scholar and an active volunteer for diverse nonprofits, such as Partnership for National Trails System, Old Spanish Trail Association, Arizona History Convention, Westerners Corrals, Pioneer Cemetery Association, and the Sunnyslope Historical Society. In 2012, Grandrud co-authored an award-winning Arizona Centennial Legacy book, "Addie Slaughter: The Girl Who Met Geronimo". Her book "Images of America: Sunnyslope" was published in 2013. Grandrud was honored in 2010 as an Arizona Culturekeeper for her work in teaching.

The meeting is free and open to the public. Doors open at 9:00 am for socializing with an optional breakfast available for a $5 donation. The meeting begins at 10:00 am.

UMOM New Day Center

Event: Service Outreach

September 26th, 2015 9:00 am - Saturday


Location: Human Services Campus, 230 S 12th Ave, Phoenix

Tour/orientation starts at 9:00, volunteer hours begin at 9:30. I highly recommend a tour if you have not been there yet, so you can hear about all the amazing programs and services UMOM offers.

10-15 of us will be in the kitchen to prepare and serve brunch. Some of us may be tasked with some deep cleaning of the kitchen and dining room. If there are additional volunteers, there will be other activities available, such as helping to sort clothes, painting, or maintenance.

UMOM is the largest homeless shelter for families in the state of Arizona. Every night they provide safe shelter and supportive services for over 170 families through their continuum of services. They also offer nearly 300 units of affordable housing across the Valley.

Parking is available in the lot in front of the building.

Hosted by Michal Otten, who will be wearing a humanist/secular themed T-shirt.
