  • The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics is holding a regional conference in Albuquerque and the Los Alamos Public Schools Foundation will provide funding for 15 Los Alamos Public School teachers to attend the event in November. 

  • Next week, Assets in Action and the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board will rally some fun to benefit Los Alamos High School athletics, with “Minute To Win It.” The new twist on “gaming,” is based on the NBC hit television show, hosted by Chef Guy Fieri.
    The television offering and the live event attempt to add fun to weeknight activities for families searching for something to do.
    “We hope to offer a very low-cost event to provide fun, spread the assets message and benefits LAHS, all at the same time,” said Bernadette Lauritzen, assets coordinator.  “The asset goal is always to build relationships through a variety of opportunities.”

  • Western civilization has long been fascinated by mythology. Nowhere is this better illustrated than in blockbuster movies such as the “Indiana Jones” series, “Star Wars,” “Lord of the Rings,” “Avatar” and “Clash of the Titans,” along with television standards such as “Hercules” and “Xena.”
    This is all great fun, but what if myths were actually based on demonstrable historical fact? What might these stories tell us about humankind’s mysterious past and how might this knowledge help to serve as a guide for the future?

  • “What insights might the Bible have for us as we come through another fire?” —John

    We don’t need the Bible to remind us that life is full of unpleasant experiences, dangerous times and many interruptions of our well-made plans. Of course, the Bible is replete with accounts of such things because it is essentially the story of how humans and God interact in times of crisis.

  • Hollywood comes to the Unitarian Church of Los Alamos this weekend as the Rev. John Cullinan begins his third annual “Summer Blockbusters” sermon series.
    Using film as the chosen text for his sermons, Cullinan explores what people can learn about their lives from recent — and not so recent — popular movies.
    Past sermons in the series have explored themes of fathers and sons in Tim Burton’s “Big Fish,” grace in “Where the Wild Things Are,” and xenophobia in “Avatar.”
    This year’s series opens this weekend with Pixar’s 2009 animated movie, “Up.” The church will hold a “Dinner and a Movie Night” at 6 p.m. Saturday, with a community dinner.
