6:00 pm - 8:30 pm    Film Screening - Resilience-the Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope

Information/Orientation / USU Student Association (USUSA)

THE CHILD MAY NOT REMEMBER, BUT THE BODY REMEMBERS. Researchers have recently discovered a dangerous biological syndrome caused by abuse and neglect during childhood. As the new documentary Resilience reveals, toxic stress can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains and bodies of children, putting them at a greater risk for disease, homelessness, prison time, and early death. While the broader impacts of poverty worsen the risk, no segment of society is immune. Resilience, however, also chronicles the dawn of a movement that is determined to fight back. Trailblazers in pediatrics, education, and social welfare are using cutting-edge science and field-tested therapies to protect children from the insidious effects of toxic stress-and the dark legacy of a childhood that no child would choose. Excerpt from Resilience website

Consumers love – and live on – their smartphones, tablets and laptops. A cascade of new devices pours endlessly into the market, promising even better communication, non-stop entertainment and instant information. The numbers are staggering. By 2020, four billion people will have a personal computer. Five billion will own a mobile phone. But this revolution has a dark side, hidden from most consumers. In an investigation that spans the globe, filmmaker Sue Williams investigates the underbelly of the electronics industry and reveals how even the smallest devices have deadly environmental and health costs. From the intensely secretive factories in China, to a ravaged New York community and the high tech corridors of Silicon Valley, the film tells a story of environmental degradation, of health tragedies, and the fast approaching tipping point between consumerism and sustainability.

April Concert: Zappa and Zappa: Counterculture California in the 1960s By the 1960s California was the place to go if you felt yourself marginalized by postwar American culture and society. April’s concert features the music one of Southern California’s most iconoclastic musicians, Frank Zappa. His music is wildly creative, often offensive, and boldly impatient with tradition. It will be paired with the music of Francesco Zappa, an 18th century Italian composer active in Amsterdam. While not an innovator, Francesco’s music is tuneful and attractive. It belongs in this concert as an exemplar of another avant-garde movement based in San Francisco at the time, the historical performance of “early music.” These two evocations of Californian counterculture come together in Frank Zappa’s own electronic recording of Francesco’s music. This concert will be performed by students from USU’s Music Department. Time: 7:30pm, refreshments to follow

7:00 pm - 9:00 pm    Movie Premier : Between Earth and Sky

Special Event / Office of Global Engagement

Alaska has been the source of myth and legend in the imagination of Americans for centuries, and what was once the last frontier of American expansion, has become the first frontier in climate change. Between Earth and Sky examines climate change through the lens of impacts to native Alaskans, receding glaciers, and arctic soil. The island of Shishmaref has been home to the Inupiaq people for thousands of years. As sea ice retreats and coastal storms increase the people of Shishmaref are faced with a disappearing island and a 200 million dollar price tag to move their people with an untold cost on their culture and history. Permafrost(permanently frozen ground) in Alaska sequesters 40% of the earth’s carbon, Alaska has experienced the largest regional warming of any state in the U.S. increasing 3.4 degrees F since 1949. This warming has created a feedback loop of carbon to the atmosphere and the thawing of permafrost.
