Smile When You Say That! (Margo Melnicove): Tips and exercises to help you learn to use your voice.

Beginning with a Bang (Alan Marscher, Svetlana Jorstad) : Drs. Marscher and Jorstad will give a brief astronomical tour of blazars, where matter falls into supermassive black holes at the centers of galaxies, and ultra-high speed jets shoot out into intergalactic space. They will show images, light curves and theoretical conceptions that allow us to explore the inner workings of blazers despite their remote distances, billions of light years from the Earth. Held at Kendall Hotel.
