Hitler and Stalin – Roots of Evil This course examines the lives of these two dictators from their birth to their leadership roles and devastating actions and decisions each took that had a lasting and terrible impact especially in the countries of Europe. They were both evil dictators and both responsible for human suffering on an unprecedented scale. We will discuss their lives and devastating effects of their philosophies. It is important to know your history because those who do not remember are condemned to repeat it.

Sexuality and Aging This lecture/discussion course will address aging and sexual function from the biological, psychological and social perspectives, including: physiological changes, adapting sex roles, aged stereotypes, sexual drives, sexual values and the social context of sexual attitudes and beliefs in our society. The course will focus on the normative aspects of sex and aging as well as those issues that arise due to chronic illness, cognitive decline and physical impairments.

Harry Truman – The Buck Stops Here Harry Truman departed the presidency with the lowest approval rating in history, yet today most historians regard Truman as one of our best presidents. Truman ended World War II, integrated the armed forces, established the Truman Doctrine, supported the

Marshall Plan, recognized Israel and ordered the Berlin airlift. However, his controversial decisions to seize American steel mills and fire Douglas MacArthur combined with his failure to end the Korean War cost Truman the support of most Americans. Blaine Davies examines the life of the “accidental president,” who upon learning of the death of Franklin Roosevelt lamented that he “felt as though the moon, the stars and all the planets had fallen on me.” MONDAY, OCT. 21 9:30 - 11:30 a.m. Cal State San Marcos, ELB 372 1 day $15 Blaine Davies, MA

Avoid the Annoyances of Aging Growing older is inevitable but many of the physical and mental challenges that seniors face are not. More than 20 issues—such as decreased energy, liver spots, irregular sleep and poor memory—can be postponed or even avoided completely. This new presentation explains what causes many of the uncomfortable, painful or even debilitating conditions that we associate with aging. Based on the input of many of those who have attended my lectures, this program reveals how we can avoid these conditions or at least limit their effects.

Science of Wisdom A proverb begins with “as we grow older, and hence wiser.” Is this true or words of consolation for aging? This course will present evidence to support this proverb from an interdisciplinary perspective, including topics from neuroscience and cognitive developmental science. Being aware that wisdom grows around midlife and stays stable during adulthood will be the first step for us to optimize our late-life experiences.

The instructor will present interpretations of significant eras of United States history through the lens of gender and experiences of women. The lectures will demonstrate how American history cannot be fully appreciated and understood without synthesizing the experiences of women and constructions of femininity into the historical narrative of the American experience. The eras to be surveyed include the Colonial and Revolutionary periods, the Civil War and Reconstruction, the Progressive Era, the 1920s, the Great Depression, World War II and the Cold War.

America and the Holocaust This course explores the intersection of the Nazis’ war on Jews and the American experience. It traces the path of this history from the 1930s into current times, paying specific attention to the process by which Americans encountered, contemplated and have remembered stories of European Jewish victimhood as part of American public memory. Students will examine this development through both political and cultural frameworks. TUESDAYS, SEPT. 10 - OCT. 8 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. Mission San Luis Rey, Oceanside 5 weeks $75 Jeffrey Demsky, PHD

Words! Music! Action! A Layperson’s Introduction to Opera From its birth circa 1600 in Italian Renaissance courts to today, this exotic art form has one main objective: to affect us deeply by telling a good story.

American Presidents from JFK to Nixon This course will examine the American presidency during the administrations that spanned John F. Kennedy to Richard M. Nixon.

Moving to Mars/ Living on Mars

The Genius of Women in Art

From our ancestors 80,000 years ago noticing a small red dot in the African sky, to a Maya priest in the city of Xunantunich calculating the orbit of the red planet in 857 CE, we will take a journey to the near future. Find out what it will take to colonize our next home. The second part of the series, Living on Mars, will explore the transformation of Mars over the next 1,000 years.

As we highlight the spirit and groundbreaking imagination of female artists and architects, collectors and entrepreneurs, you will hear their stories, view their artwork and marvel at their collections through the ages. This series includes prominent females in the arts as well as lesser-known, but just as brilliant, creators.

Cannabis – Separating Fact from Myth Cannabis is seemingly everywhere, emerging from the shadows of decades-long prohibition into the light of regulated commerce and mainstream media. Curiosity, confusion and concern are motivating individuals and organizations to educate themselves. This lecture will highlight and characterize the most important legal, scientific and medical issues within the field of cannabis, from differences between hemp and marijuana, to differences between THC and CBD. A special focus will be paid toward the medical use of cannabis and cannabinoids. WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 11 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. Stagecoach Community Center, Carlsbad 1 day $15 Dr. Jamie Corroon

Globalization From Ground Level – 40+ Years of Trying to Make it Work This class will examine globalization from the perspective of a corporate executive who worked for two multinational firms as an international and global executive before becoming an entrepreneur and starting his own firm in the medical device field. The journey will begin with his assignments in the Caribbean and then in Argentina during the period following the military takeover and continuing with the Falkland Islands War (Las Islas Malvinas) with Great Britain in 1982. It will cover what was then a critical corporate strategy for implementing a global sourcing and distribution plan during the 1990s for home consumer videotapes and DVDs. It will conclude with the challenges of manufacturing and distributing durable medical devices (walkers, canes, crutches, bath safety and medication compliance products) sold through North American retail channels in a market increasingly dominated by low-cost Chinese imports.

Modern Art Demystified For many people, modern art remains an enigma for good reason, as some practitioners of modernist art indeed wanted to provoke and confront rather than console viewers. However, the stream of modernist art, which many historians believe began in the mid-19th century, was rooted in the apprehension of nature, and this stream widened as the 20th and 21st centuries proceeded. This lecture presents many modernist artists beginning with the 19th century Impressionists and Post-Impressionists including Monet, Cézanne, van Gogh, Gauguin and continuing into the 20th century with de Kooning, Rothko, Gorky, Pollock and many 6

Avoid the Annoyances of Aging

The World of the Middle Ages Although frequently referred to as the Dark Ages, the Middle Ages represented the most colorful and consequential age in world history. It was an era that witnessed the rise of Christianity and Islam, the establishment of the great universities of Europe and many unequaled works of literary, philosophical and architectural genius. Perhaps most intriguing of all was the emergence of feudalism, a social, economic and political system, which over time evolved into the contemporary nation-state. Drawing from this rich cultural and institutional tapestry, these lectures will present an overview of the fascinating world of the Middle Ages.

Immigration History in America The U.S. has long been considered a nation of immigrants. Attitudes toward new immigrants by those who came before have fluctuated between welcoming and exclusionary over the years. Xenophobia vacillates between economic periods of boom and bust and quota systems waver. Amnesty and incarceration have been used to reduce both legal and illegal immigration. All of this to no avail as people continue to cross our borders.

Living Forever Aubrey de Grey is a well-known and respected English scientist who specializes in gerontology and aging. He is also chief science officer for the SENS (Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence) Foundation, a British organization actively involved in human life extension. De Grey and others believe that aging is a disease, not a process. In his book, Ending Aging, de Grey has carefully outlined a seven-part strategy for curing what he argues is “the disease called aging.” Armed with this strategy, de Grey and other scientists are convinced it is possible one day to engineer virtual immortality in humans.

“I joined Cal State San Marcos' Osher program shortly after moving to Carlsbad and it's provided the best value for ongoing intellectual stimulation to be found. The variety of offerings and the quality of the faculty are top-notch.” Jack Cumming, Matching Donor for the Osher Fund, 2018 CSUSM Giving Day

Volunteer Opportunities Available! Help make a difference by becoming an OLLI volunteer.

Members and volunteers enjoyed the show at last year's Osher Appreciation Luau.

We serve close to 700 members and continue to grow. We would not be able to provide these high-quality classes and services without the work and support of our dedicated volunteers.
