  • Pajarito Environmental Education Center will offer a free talk and slideshow by Hari Viswanathan about his bird photography trip in Peru at 7 p.m. Jan. 26.  
    Viswanathan recently traveled from the Machu Picchu cloud forest to the Amazon rainforest on a special trip to photograph birds.
    He went from 10,000 feet in elevation in the Andes to 1,000 feet in the Amazon rain forest, passing through many different habitats along the way.
    His expert guide helped him locate and photograph some of the 1,879 species of birds in Peru (compared with only 925 species in the U.S.). Viswanathan said he was amazed at how many good looks he was able to get of spectacular species of macaws, toucans, tanagers, hummingbirds and more.  

  • The Los Alamos Concert Association presents Haochen Zhang, at 4 p.m. Sunday at the Duane Smith Auditorium. Zhang is the gold medalist of the 2009 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition.
    Established in 1962 and held every four years, the Cliburn competition is considered by many to be the most prestigious classical piano competition in the world.  The Milwaukee Journal called it “the musical Olympics” and  PBS televised the 2009 competition as “A Surprise in Texas: The Thirteenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition,” featuring the finalists vying for the coveted gold medal. Zhang shared the top prize with Nobuyuki Tsujii and become the youngest pianist, at age 19, to win the competition.

  • Jenn Bartram was dealing with a major problem. She woke up in the middle of the night craving sugar. She ate handfuls of candy corn and was trying hard not to eat sweets, but still felt totally out of control.
    She wasn’t sure how to get a handle on her cravings, then Dr. Merry McIntyre recommended Dr. Bobbie Hall.
    Hall is a certified natural health practitioner, master herbalist and naturopathic doctor that has a private natural health practice in town called Trinity Natural Health.  
    Bartram had her first appointment in mid-October and it was then that Hall told her she had Candida — an imbalance that cancer survivors often face.
