SCHEDULE OF COURSES June 2012

June 1 – June 30

NOTE FROM THE DIRECTORS Thank you for another great year at OLLI at Aquinas. It is hard to believe that after June classes, we will be on summer break. Membership and class participation continue to exceed our expectations. We want to especially thank those of you who contributed to our fund drive. Those monies will help make up for the shortfall in grants that we will no longer be receiving from the Osher Foundation. We are already looking forward to a full and exciting fall course schedule. Plan on receiving membership information from us in late July and your catalog in early August. In the meantime, we hope you have a wonderful summer! Rick Steketee and Sheila Pantlind

OLLI TUITION COURSES

MONDAY Being Positive Is a Choice Monday, 9:30-11:30 am June 4 David Weinandy is a professor of communication at Aquinas College. He teaches courses in advanced public presentation, group dynamics, and organizational communication. Dr. Weinandy has been awarded The Outstanding Faculty Member by both the student body and the Alumni Association. Often, being positive does not come naturally, even when it appears that it does. Rather, a positive attitude is a choice - a deliberate choice that affects our interpersonal communication and relationships. It appears that many people have created a life that is tiring, negative, and minimally self-motivating. Don’t be one of them. Commit to refreshing your perspective and soul with more fun and enjoyment. Together, let’s create a life worth living! M: Bronze $15 Silver $12 NM: $20 Location: Browne Center

practices, social justice, political power and social change, and public policy. This class will continue our coverage of the 2012 elections and will address, among others, the following questions: What is new in campaigning this year, particular in light of the Supreme Court ruling on campaign finance and super-pacs? What is ahead for the conventions? What seem to be the issues that the candidates will address in the November election? Finally, how will the Electoral College map influence the election?

TUESDAY Strangers at the Door: The History of American Immigration Tuesdays, 9:30-11:30 am June 5, 12 & 19 Robert Schoone-Jongen is assistant professor of history at Calvin College. He is the grandson of Dutch immigrants who arrived in the U.S. during the high tide of European immigration at the turn of the 20th century. He has published numerous articles on the history of American immigration, especially Dutch immigration to New Jersey and Minnesota. This course will be an overview of the impact immigration has had on the United States. Some of the questions that will be addressed are: Did you know that colonial New York City was home to about a dozen different language groups? Did you know that before the Revolution the presence of German speakers in Pennsylvania fueled a debate about whether English should be declared the colony’s official language? Did you know that immigration is mentioned in the Declaration of Independence? Join us on this historical journey about immigration. M: Bronze $52 Silver $42 NM: $62 Location: Browne Center

Practicing Meditation Tuesdays, 9:30-11:30 am June 5 & 12 Marnie Kotwick has practiced transcendental meditation for a number of years.

Feeling a little stressed but don’t quite know how to relax? Marnie will introduce you to the physiology of the body’s relaxation response, and the practice of meditation. Students will learn and experience a variety of techniques including mindfulness meditation, relaxation breathing, meditation with movement and guided imagery. Note: Students are welcome to bring an exercise mat and pillow. M: Bronze $35 Silver $30 NM: $42 Location: Browne Center

Clashes of Culture Tuesdays, 1:30-3:30 pm June 5, 12 & 19 Dr. Deborah Wickering, assistant professor of anthropology at Aquinas College, is a cultural anthropologist. Her research among Bedouin women in the Sinai desert of Egypt led to her interests in gender, indigenous peoples, oral culture and tourism. In addition to teaching anthropology, Dr. Wickering also teaches women’s studies and writing. What happens when cultures collide? We will read and discuss authors such as W.E.B. Dubois, Jonathan Swift, among others in a Great Books Foundation anthology, Clashes of Culture. Dr. Wickering will lead the discussion of this collection of literature, philosophy and poetry around a theme of what happens when cultures make contact and collide. Because people’s cultural and religious identities continue to be the primary conflict in the world, this class will offer great insight and relevance. Note: Tuition includes the book Clashes of Culture. Pick up your copy at the OLLI office one week prior to class. M: Bronze $62 Silver $52 NM: $72 Location: Browne Center


COURSES CONT. Brain Phenomena: What Really is Going on Upstairs? Tuesdays, 1:30-3:30 pm June 19 & 26 Dr. Thomas Bahl has been at Aquinas College since 2002.

Last June, OLLI students enjoyed his class, “Neurological Disorders of the Brain.” This course will explore some fascinating aspects of the brain and behavior. We will discuss some overall brain anatomy and relate the regions to some phenomena. Topics will range from addictions and the neurotransmitters involved, plasticity in brain region functions, and sex and sexuality and the brain. Experimental evidence will be presented including images of the brain, especially functional MRI’s. M: Bronze $35 Silver $30 NM: $42 Location: Browne Center

WEDNESDAY Native Americans of the Southwest Wednesday, 9:30-11:30 am June 6 Mary Ann Valenti Boyer is the publications manager for client marketing at the corporate offices of Bethany Christian Services.

Through these pictures and tales, she will increase your knowledge, understanding, and respect for the ancient cultures which shape this landscape. M: Bronze $15 Silver $12 NM: $20 Location: Browne Center

Fracturing Shale: The Good, Bad & Ugly of Recovering Natural Gas Wednesday, 1:30-3:30 pm June 6 & 13 Lee Smith, is a certified petroleum geologist who has spent 20 years in the oil and gas exploration business, 16 years as a buyer of large quantities of natural gas. Lee’s most recent OLLI class was “Pain at the Pump: What’s with these Oil& Gas Prices.” As late as 2000, natural gas from shale made up 1% of the U.S. natural gas supplies. Twelve years later, it is about 25% and could rise to 50%. Natural gas-powered plants provide an attractive alternative to the pollution from coal plants and the risks of nuclear power. But “fracturing” a well involves injecting large quantities of water and hazardous chemicals into the ground. How the water is disposed of when it returns to the surface has not been resolved. This class will examine the potential of shale to meet our energy needs and will look at the problems associated with fracturing shale. M: Bronze $35 Silver $30 NM: $42 Location: Browne Center

The Arab Spring: One Year Later Wednesdays, 9:30-11:30 am June 20 & 27 Dr. Roger Durham is chair of the Political Science Department at Aquinas. He teaches international relations and comparative politics

courses and coordinates the International Studies Degree. Dr. Durham has received the Outstanding Faculty Member from students numerous times and is an OLLI favorite. The Arab Spring could have both current and long term effects on international politics, both regionally and globally. This class will focus on the events in Syria, U.S. involvement in the international efforts in Libya and U.S. relations with Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Iran, as well as relations with Israel and the Palestinians. In this context, questions regarding U.S. foreign policy options in the Middle East will be discussed. M: Bronze $35 Silver $30 NM: $42 Location: Browne Center

Lost & Found: Shipwrecks of Lake Michigan Wednesdays, 1:30-3:30 pm June 20 & 27 Valerie van Heest is a shipwreck hunter, awardwinning author and member of the Womens Divers Hall of Fame. As director of Michigan Shipwreck Research Associates, she has led the expeditions to discover and document more than a dozen shipwrecks in Lake Michigan. Valerie has won an award for her work preserving and promoting Michigan’s submerged maritime history in addition to writing four books, designing museum exhibits and appearing in TV documentaries. Explore several newly discovered shipwrecks off the shores of West Michigan. These schooners, steamers, self-unloaders and even a pleasure yacht span the evolution of shipping from the early 1800’s to the mid 1900’s. They offer a look at the maritime roots of Michigan. Go underwater with an archaeological team as they document a sunken lumber schooner and reveal the secrets found inside. M: Bronze $35 Silver $30 NM: $42 Location: Browne Center

THURSDAY The Louisiana Purchase: Thomas Jefferson & Big Government Thursday, 9:30-11:30 am June 7 & 14 Dr. Sean O’Neill, professor of history at Grand Valley State University, teaches American Indian studies, Colonial America, and Social Studies Education. He has a BA from the University of California, Berkeley, and his MA and Ph.D. from the University of California, Santa Barbara. This course will explore the events that led to the Louisiana Purchase, the people involved (Napoleon Bonaparte, Thomas Jefferson, Charles Maurice Talleyrand- Périgord, James Madison, François Barbé-Marbois, Robert Livingston and James Monroe), and the historical context (Haitian Revolution, Napoleonic Wars, “right of deposit” in New Orleans, Federalists v. Republicans). Professor O’Neill will consider questions regarding whom to credit for the Purchase and how people responded to it at the time. Finally, we will reflect on the consequences of the Purchase for U.S. and world history. M: Bronze $35 Silver $30 NM: $42 Location: Browne Center

Ancient Greek Tragedies Thursdays, 9:30-11:30 am June 7 & 14 Greg Carnevale taught Latin and ancient Greek at City High School and East Grand Rapids High School. Greg was also an associate professor of Latin at Aquinas College. Continuing our introduction to ancient Greek Tragedy, we will focus on Sophocles. His second play of the three Theban plays, Antigone, will

be our study. Antigone is Oedipus’ daughter from his incestuous marriage to his mother. She opposes her uncle King Creon, all over her insistence for the proper burial of her brother. She faces death in doing so. She speaks truth to power. This play has a very powerful message, one of moral certitude and fortitude. It is so universal that Jean Anouilh adapted it for the French Resistance in WW II. M: Bronze $35 Silver $30 NM: $42 Location: Browne Center

reaching transformation to come about? In this talk, we will explore this and other questions vital to understanding the whipsaw forces in American politics today, and how they will play out in Election 2012. M: Bronze $15 Silver $12 NM: $20 Location: Donnelly Center

The Genius of Genesis: The Saga Continues Thursdays, 9:30-11:30 am June 21 & 28

The Presidential Lecture Series Thursday, 1:30-3:30 pm June 14 Gleaves Whitney is director of THANK YOU FOR Grand Valley ATTENDING THIS State University’s LECTURE SERIES. Hauenstein Center for WATCH FOR A NEW SERIES NEXT FALL. Presidential Studies. He is a scholar who writes and lectures nationally on presidential history and leaders. He is one of OLLI’s most popular instructors. President Barack Obama’s successful quest for the White House is one of the most remarkable stories in U.S. history. It was also quite improbable—even more improbable than Abraham Lincoln’s quest 150 years earlier. Prior to the 2008 campaign, no pundit foresaw that a relatively inexperienced African American from the Land of Lincoln would become the nation’s 44th president. To unpack this unexpected event, it is important to understand both the man and the times. The nation was war weary and had been plunged into the deepest recession since the Great Depression. The Republican majority in Congress had been overthrown, and Americans seemed eager for a dramatic change in leadership. Barack Obama promised the change. But would the political climate in Washington allow far-

Dr. Albert Lewis, former director of the Emeritus College, is a recognized author, speaker, rabbi, and specialist on aging. His weekly articles in The Grand Rapids Press are circulated throughout the United States, Canada, and Great Britain, and his latest book is titled Soul Sounds. Rabbi Lewis will continue to explore the universal themes in the Genius of Genesis. Join Dr. Lewis as he discusses Joseph and his brothers, sibling rivalry, the positive and negative aspects of dreams and is forgiveness really possible? The second meeting will cover patriarchs, matriarchs, land division and two kingdoms to come. As always, Rabbi Lewis will lead a lively and timely discussion. M: Bronze $35 Silver $30 NM: $42 Location: Browne Center

FRIDAY Golf Courses of Michigan Friday, 9:30-11:30 am June 1 Greg Johnson has been an award winning sports journalist for 30 years primarily for The Grand Rapids Press and Booth Newspapers. Greg has covered 16 Masters Tournaments and is a member of the Golf Writers

Meeting God in Scripture: Understanding Spiritual Gifts

Michigan has the most public golf courses among the 50 states, and despite a short season in a northern climate this state has some of the best golf courses in the world. What are your favorites in Michigan? It’s subjective. Greg will introduce the class to some of the famous golf course architects who have worked in Michigan and to the great courses. He will also discuss the five highlights that can be found at each golf course. Finally, he will ask the class to create its own top 10 list of courses in Michigan.

Karin Orr is an ordained United Methodist minister. She received her BA from Albion College and a MA and Ph.D. in English from Wayne State University.

Fridays, 9:30-11:30 am June 15 & 22

Usually we read cognitively, for information. In this study, we will use short passages from scripture and poetry to discover what is being said to us at a deeper level. Using various techniques, such as centering,

journaling, and lectio divina (holy reading), participants will explore how we are shaped, spiritually, by what we read. Discussions will focus on the spiritual gifts our responses reveal, not only in ourselves but also in the others with whom we are sharing reflections. While this study is framed in the Christian tradition, we will seek a wide appreciation of what it means to be human and to encounter God. Note: Tuition includes the book Understanding Spiritual Gifts. Pick up your copy at the OLLI office one week prior to the class. M: Bronze $48 Silver $43 NM: $55 Location: Browne Center

From the civil defense system of the Cold War days, to the Homeland Security and Domestic Preparedness systems of today, we have tried to optimize our nation’s security. The nation, its states, and communities continue to face domestic and global enemies. Since 9/11, the development of All Cause, All Hazard Preparedness has resulted in a new infrastructure with a budget in the billions of dollars. Dr. Richard Tooker will present an historical perspective on emergency preparedness, the current systems, funding cuts, and special attention to Michigan and local emergency capabilities.

From Tel Aviv to the Sea of Galilee, Nazareth to Masada, Jerusalem to Bethlehem, come join us for a pictorial tour of Israel, the biblical land of milk and honey. Comprised of magnificent beauty, unexpected contrasts and incredible history, Israel is a once in a lifetime pilgrimage for many. Led by three wise men: Rabbi Al Lewis, Father Steven Cron, and Roni Winter, an Israeli guide, along with 21 additional intrepid travelers, OLLI students, Bill and Kary had the opportunity to tour the Holy Land for 12 days last fall. Let them take you on a tour of a spiritual land where the Bible comes to life.

Take your cookie decorating to a whole new level. Learn the techniques for decorating sugar cookies with royal icing from Spring Lake’s very own Mary Bedore, of “The Piped Cookie.” Years ago, Mary owned one cookie cutter – her collection has now grown to nearly 200. After losing her son in an auto accident, Mary found herself baking and decorating cookies. It was a therapeutic diversion for Mary who now teaches others at her sold out classes! You will leave with a half dozen of your very own creations.
