    The Underworld has had much more influence in American life than is widely known. The Mafia itself had varying ties to the Presidencies of FDR, Truman, Kennedy, Nixon, and Reagan—while regional Underworld Texas and Arkansas organizations influenced LBJ and Clinton. We will discuss the specifics of all these connections over three sessions. You will never forget this verified, obscure information. Free and open to the public. Register early: maximum 12.

    Even before the rise of commercial air travel and ballistic missiles, air brought to mind direct connections with distant parts of the world more readily than land and water did. This presentation will explore several interrelated aspects of the influences of birds and bird migrations upon Illinoisans’ geographic and environmental perceptions during the first century of Illinois’s statehood.

    First, rural Illinoisans paid considerable attention to wild birds, both as sources of food and as allies in the war against insect pests before effective synthetic pesticides. Second, a sense that bird populations were declining due to habitat loss and hunting led to increased efforts to figure out bird migrations. Third, those who worked to understand migration did so through vast collaborative webs. Fourth, ornithological studies drew attention to connections to distant places. Finally, understandings of bird migrations were influenced by politics insofar as birders tended to consider North America north of Mexico as a main unit of study (thereby distorting the ranges of many birds) and tended to displace blame for declining bird populations.

    Come visit a fourth generation family farm and woodland just one mile southwest of EIU campus. Robert and Virginia Lynch purchased Farm 12 of Coles County in 1948. This 40 acre homestead is located on what was then known as Hog Farm Road, our present day University Drive. Hear the history of the farm starting with Robert, who attended EIU from first grade through college, Tom (his son) who attended EIU’s laboratory school through graduate school, and now Mike and Scott Lynch, both EIU graduates as well. The farm was originally a livestock and produce operation which featured a roadside stand that many of Charleston’s most seasoned residents can still remember. Tour the grounds and view the current activities including organically grown tomatoes, pick-your-own sweet corn, a hopyard and pumpkin patch. Learn about the ongoing forest management practices and discuss future plans for the property such as native prairie grass stands and botanical display gardens. As stewards of the land for successive generations, the Lynch Family wishes to create a sustainable, family friendly environment for Charlestonians to enjoy.

    The topic of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (drones) is quite popular in society today with both hobbyists and organizations. 700,000 consumer UAV’s were sold in 2015 with the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™ predicting an increase in sales to be 57% in 2016. Just over $2 billion will be directly spent on UAV’s in 2016, with the economic impact reaching over $4 billion. With their popularity, practical purposes are still being deciphered by these multiple entities. Examples of applications in construction, agriculture, distribution, law enforcement, and energy industries are plentiful. Major points:


    · Description of UAV types
    · Regulatory boundaries and licensing
    · Technological limitations of various UAV’s and image capture
    · Current and future applications of UAV’s

    This presentation identifies techniques and applications being utilized by photographers, videographers, advertising, media, and marketing specialists in operation of UAV’s. Additionally, those that educate in the field of graphics will be able to ascertain differences between the respective technology providers, examine boundaries set forth by regulatory agencies and image capture.

    Free and open to the public.  Registration requested at 217-581-5114 or https://sce.eiu.edu/wconnect/CourseStatus.awp?&course=FA18ALDRONES

    9 to 5 The Musical, with music and lyrics by Dolly Parton and book by Patricia Resnick, is based on the seminal 1980 hit movie. Set in the late 1970s. this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic.

    Pushed to the boiling point, three female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy, and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains "otherwise engaged," the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. Hey, a girl can scheme, can't she?
