Book Drive to Support Community Center in Ghana, Africa

Pavlis Institute for Global Technological Leadership this past summer  had the incredible opportunity to travel to Ghana, Africa to carry out numerous projects.  Part of the experience led to a community center in a small town called Abesim.  The Pavlis program has worked with this community center in the past, but the team felt that they should bring attention back to this incredible resource for students.  One of the most unfortunate things about this community center is that it is etremely lacking in educational material for students achieving higher education.  Therefore, as part of a Senior Capston Experience, Courtney De Cramer is working with the Ghana team that will be traveling to the country in the summer of 2016 to donate college-level textbooks to this community center.  Therefore, they are running a book drive from December 7-December 19 to collect any college level materials for the team to bring on their journey.  They will accept any and all donations.  To donate or for questions please contact Pete Seim (pjhokeme@mtu.edu) or Courtney De Cramer (ckdecram@mtu.edu).

See New York’s “Reigning String Quartet” ETHEL at the Rozsa Center

What’s the music like? Expect post-modern classical, with a bit of twangy-folk-fiddle sound thrown in. Should be a great concert, beautiful music with very cool videography based on the 1970′s “Project Documerica.” Experience the electrifying concert ETHEL: Documerica at the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts tomorrow, Friday, November 6, 2015 at 7:30 PM.

Acclaimed as “unfailingly vital” (The New York Times), “brilliant,” “downtown’s reigning string quartet” (The New Yorker), and “one of the most exciting quartets around” (Strad Magazine), ETHEL invigorates the contemporary music scene with exuberance, intensity, imaginative programming, and exceptional artistry. Documerica features video projections that parallel the music, based on the 1971 Environmental Protection Agency’s Project Documerica photographs, which capture America’s sometimes fabled, sometimes fraught relationship to its land. The imagery of Project Documerica is the inspiration for ETHEL’s Documerica, which taps the archive’s rich evocation of time and place and brings its visual and emotional impact into dialogue with the 21st century. With Documerica, ETHEL invites audiences to contemplate individual and collective connections, action, and responsiveness to environmental and social challenges revealed through the repurposing of this distinctly American archive through the unifying language of art. Tickets for ETHEL: Documerica are on sale now, $19 for adults, $10 for youth, and no charge for Michigan Tech students with the Experience Tech fee. Advance reserved seating is now available, please order tickets early! Tickets are available by phone at (906) 487-2073, online at Rozsa.mtu.edu, in person at the Central Ticketing Office in the Student Development Complex, or at the Rozsa Box Office the evening of the performance.

AQ_Romeo and Juliet_RT1H8A0441_Richard Termine

Aquila Theatre Presents a Minimal, Starkly Beautiful Romeo and Juliet

The story is so well known, star-crossed lovers who are doomed from the start, so why is this production special? This minimal adaptation is a joy of the senses: Simple, pared-down and shadowy, Aquila Theatre’s Romeo and Juliet, directed and adapted by Desiree Sanchez, is a completely new way to experience one of Shakespeare’s most iconic plays. Shakespeare’s eight plus actors are cut down to five, the original seventeen roles reduced to eight. The story is condensed, focused, and chiseled away at until it stands out in uncluttered relief.

According to a recent review by Sam Hall, of DC Metro Theater Arts, “This is a very real and very serious production, full of shadows and chiaroscuro light….We have here a remarkable fusion of design, text, and performance, of consciousness, scenery, sound, light, space, meaning, and movement. This is Romeo and Juliet as high tragedy, a balletic dream …. a grandeur of poetry and high art. It is beautiful and disturbing. Deeply moving, without a trace of sentimentality. ” 

Experience the beauty of Aquila Theatre’s new production of Romeo and Juliet, playing at the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts next Thursday, October 22, 2015 at 8:00 PM. There will be a pre-performance discussion with Aquila Theatre tour members at 7:00 pm in the Rozsa lobby. Tickets for Romeo and Juliet are on sale now, $24 for adults, $10 for youth, and no charge for Michigan Tech students with the Experience Tech fee. Advance reserved seating is now available, please order tickets early!

Khana Khazana Serving Hawaiian Cuisine

Khana Khazana, a weekly international lunch will feature Hawaiian cuisine this Friday, October 16.
The side dish is Creamy Potato Salad.  Cookbooks document the popularity of potato salad recipes across mainland America in the early 20th century, and some observers have noted that mainland chefs were being recruited to run Hawaii’s top hotels and restaurants during the same period, bringing their European-influenced culinary backgrounds—including creamy potato salad—with them. It’s a casual dish that easily adapts to any type of food or occasion—it is, in other words, quintessentially local.
The main dish is Huli Huli Chicken a grilled chicken dish in Hawaiian cuisine. Preparation involves basting the chicken constantly with a Huli-huli sauce. Huli Huli Chicken’ (turn, turn) was invented by Ernest Morgado when he cooked teriyaki chicken for a group of farmers in 1955. This has been a Hawaiian staple with sticky rice ever since.
Also serving, fresh Corn Tomato Salad, a favorite summer salad using fresh corn, tomatoes, basil and onions. This tomato salad recipe is a wonderful way to avoid turning on the stove! Works especially well with grilled vegetables.
Serving is from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM in the MUB Food Court. The whole meal is $7 and includes a fountain soda or $3 for each item.
COMING UP:
  • October 23- Middle Eastern (Felafel, Shwarma, Warbat)

Among the many other films screening during the weekend are Drone, The Wanted 18, King Georges, Mavis!, Here Come the Videofreex, and Victoria.

The festival will also feature an exhibition of documentary storytelling that employs Oculus Rift VR technology. Projects featured include Ferguson Firsthand, which uses a virtual reality environment to invite the audience into the scene, where they can encounter people and objects that tell the story, and Herders, which provides an immersive cinematic look into the lives of Mongolian yak herders.

By bringing compelling stories about the world and today’s important issues to campus—along with filmmakers whose research and artistry tell those stories—the 41 North Film Festival offers the community an opportunity to consider and discuss complex questions around science, engineering, industry, politics, history and the human condition.

Festival sponsors include the Michigan Tech Departments of Humanities and Visual and Performing Arts, and the Van Evera Distinguished Lecture Series at the Rozsa Center. For the full schedule and program, visit: http://41northfilmfest.org and on Facebook. For more information about the festival and its events, please contact Erin Smith at ersmith@mtu.edu.

Get Paid For Your Old Appliances

Upper Peninsula Power Co. customers can recycle their old refrigerators, freezers and more Saturday and get paid for their trouble.

Efficiency UNITED is accepting working freezers, refrigerators, room air conditioners and dehumidifiers (sorry, no stoves or electronics) between 11:00AM to 4:00PM Saturday, at Dee Stadium.

**To participate, bring a recent UPPCO bill along with your clean, empty appliances to the Energy Show. You will receive $50 each for refrigerators and freezers and $15 for dehumidifiers and air conditioners.

“This is a great way to get rid of that energy-hogging appliance, especially if you are moving up to a new energy-efficient model,” said civil engineering senior Lauren Krueger, past president of the Michigan Tech chapter of Rotaract, which is co-sponsoring the event with the Houghton Energy Efficiency Team (HEET). “Old refrigerators use up to four times as much electricity as the latest ENERGY STAR brands.”
