The Tempest, Shakespeare's last great play may be one of his most autobiographical, as playwright and character alike put the final touches on their long careers of creativity and power. St Olaf's production will feature the exciting innovations of several student designers as they create the scenic and aural landscapes for The Tempest's beguiling island environment.

Twelve years after being exiled to a deserted island, the sorcerer and former Duke of Milan, Prospero, invokes an outrageous storm in order to beach his wrongdoers for a final confrontation. His storm washed up royalty, drunkards and clowns in order to amend old wrongs and to offer his daugher Miranda a cast of characters worthy of her exclamation, "Oh brave new world, that has such people in it!" Weighing virtue against vengeance, Prospero readies for retirement as he relinquishes power over his savage slave Caliban and his spiritual muse, Ariel.

On Saturday evening, April 13 at 7:00 p.m. in partnership with students from St. Olaf SustainAbilities and Transition Northfield, the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is screening the award-winning film “Bidder 70.”

The film centers on an act of civil disobedience in 2008 by University of Utah student Tim DeChristopher in the name of climate justice. He disrupted a land auction, preventing pristine land adjacent to Canyonlands National Park in Utah from being leased for oil and gas extraction. Registering as Bidder #70, he obtained 14 parcels for $1.8 million. He was removed from the auction by federal agents and taken into custody and questioned. He was indicted on two federal felonies, and in 2011, sentenced to two years in federal prison. He will be released in April.

Start: Apr 13 2013 7:00 pm

What does it take to halt drilling for oil and gas on pristine PUBLICLY owned land? Tim De Christopher. This courageous young man was protesting the auction of leases on public lands, then entered the auction and won the bids for 22 tracts. With no intention of paying (and no intention of drilling!), Tim was sentenced to two years in a federal prison.

Bidder 70 is his story; it is also the story of the movement called Peaceful Uprising that grew to support him and bring to national attention our extremely vulnerable relationship to the future if we continue to burn oil and gas with no regard for the consequences.

Carleton College will host an Earth Day event celebrating the Weitz Center for Creativity’s LEED® Gold certification on Monday, April 22 at 7 p.m.

 

The event, to be held in the Class of 1980 Commons area of the Weitz Center, will begin with remarks by Fred Rogers ‘72, vice president and treasurer, who was a student at Carleton at the first Earth Day celebration. Rogers will be followed by Scot Horst, senior vice president with the U.S. Green Building Council, who will talk about the significance of LEED certification, what this represents for Carleton, and the uniqueness of receiving such a certification for a repurposed building rather than new construction. Horst, a Northfield native, attended middle school in what is now the Weitz Center. He will present Carleton President Steven G. Poskanzer with a plaque designating the Weitz Center as LEED® Gold certified.

Entitled “Olefin Metathesis Catalysts for the Preparation of Molecules and Materials,” Grubbs’ presentation will take place at 7:30 p.m. in Room 149 of Olin Hall, and is free and open to the public.

 

Grubb’s primary focus will be on the serious need for new practices within the chemical industry, as petroleum continues to become more expensive and the control of carbon dioxide emissions becomes a higher priority. Grubbs will draw upon his work on olefin metathesis to give examples of how catalysis can be used to meet the challenges imposed by a changing world. Catalytic processes provide green methods of producing many old and new chemicals and open new sources of carbon.

Members of the cast and crew will attend, with a question and answer session to follow. This event is free and open to the public.

 

Tretbar shot the film in and around Northfield in the summer of 2011 with a crew of mostly Carleton film students, along with strong support from the Northfield community and a cast of real Minneapolis motorcyclists. Local KYMN Radio host and DJ, Jessica Paxton, served as line producer for the film, providing direct contact to local businesses and city offices for locations and road use." We couldn't have made this film without the wonderful support of Northfield and Carleton College. I think everyone will love how beautiful Northfield looks on the big screen!,” says Tretbar.

According to Moltchanova, “ This years selection includes a lively and very short biography of Walt Disney, the adventures of a time-traveling settler in the Mall of America, some hilarious and profound artistic explorations of two big holidays Thanksgiving and Christmas, a story of internets influence on our family life, love and friendship and, of course, plays dealing with the perennial themes of war and peace, life and death.”

Resilient Book Club

We meet monthly at the Northfield Public Library to read and discuss books focused on sustainability, permaculture and gardening, possible futures for a society that refuses to wean itself from an addiction to cheap energy. Our thinking goes like this: we have created a culture wholly dependent upon non-renewable energy sources that, by definition, will end at some point. So let’s educate ourselves and build support for those ideas that can usher in a new way of doing our lives.

Second Mondays of the month

Public Library meeting room, 6-7:45 pm

Monday May 13: Eaarth, Bill McKibben

From Barabra Kingsolver "What I have to say about this book is very simple: Read it, please. Straight through to the end. Whatever else you were planning to do next, nothing could be more important."

Future books and/or movies to be announced.
