  • The next meeting of the Los Alamos Geological Society will be 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Christian Church, 92 East Road.
    Dan Aiken, retired from Freeport-McMoran Copper and Gold, Inc., will present a talk entitled, “The Way to Antarctica: Land and Sea.”
    It is not easy getting to Antarctica. It takes luck, commitment, timing, money, seasick medication and some good garments, plus an exceptional guidebook to remote places.
    Equipped with all of the above, plus a healthy fear of Drake’s Passage and the experience of being left behind on pack ice, Aiken  journeyed south from Brazil, where he was living. This talk is about that journey and how the geology of Antarctica relates to the breakup of Gondwana.

  • The perfect pair is at it again and will be  at it all summer long. Liz Martineau and Gordon McDonough of the Bradbury Science Museum will once again elevate science in the minds and hearts of community youth.
    This year the team includes a host of fellow collaborators to assist on the lifelong learning path. Their friends at Pajarito Environmental Education Center, Los Alamos Historical Museum, Bandelier National Monument, Fuller Lodge Art Center, the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board and Assets In Action have come together to sponsor free events, open to the community, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Tuesdays.

  • The MG Franklin E. Miles Chapter 229 of the Military Order of World Wars in Los Alamos announces that Chris Ortega, senior weaver of the Chimayó Ortega weaving family will be the guest speaker at the June dinner meeting at 6 p.m. June 21 at the Best Western Hilltop House Hotel.
    Ortega will talk about the Ortega weaving family. He is retired from the Los Alamos County Utilities department, where he was the utilities department manager. Ortega is currently chairman of the Los Alamos County Utilities Board.

  • Nine dancers from the New Mexico Dance Theater and five dancers from the School of the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet will take part in a two-week tour of France this summer.
    “This is extremely exciting,” said NMDT director Susan Baker-Dillingham, “and we are so lucky to have Jefferson Baum directing the tour.”
    Baum, a member of the ASFB faculty, who joined the NMDT faculty last year after teaching at the NMDT Summer Dance Intensive, has been impressed enough to put a collaborative tour together featuring students from both schools.
    “Jefferson has taken groups of pre-professional dancers to France in the past and I am elated he feels the NMDT dancers are ready for such a challenge,” Baker-Dillingham said.

  • “The president said recently, after the death of Osama bin Laden, that ‘justice has been done.’ From a biblical standpoint, was this truly justice or simply revenge?” —Terry

    Bear in mind that biblical ethical content is prescribed primarily for religious reasons; i.e., it is directed toward people who desire to be faithful to God and to reflect His purposes in the world.
    This means at least two things: legal codes and notions of justice appear differently at different periods of biblical history; and, “faith-based ethics” are more readily practiced by individuals than by groups — especially governments and nations.

  • NEW YORK — A slew of acclaimed shows were up for Tony Awards in a remarkably competitive year, but a production that wasn’t even eligible still managed to cast a shadow — well, shall we make that a web? — over the proceedings.
    On a night when the hilariously profane “The Book of Mormon” reigned supreme, the famously troubled “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” got attention both positive and negative at Sunday’s Tonys. There was a performance — certainly rare for a show that hasn’t even opened yet — plus a plug from its famous composers, Bono and The Edge. And of course, there were the obligatory “Spider-Man” jokes, without which no awards show would be complete.

Visitors are welcome.
