Lectures at 10am, Crossroads United Church, 690 Sir John A. Macdonald Blvd

Hi Later Life Learning Lecture Patrons and other potential blog readers,

Some of you may want to check out the January - February 2019 edition of DISCOVER with the magazine title THE STATE OF SCIENCE 2019.

This particular edition of DISCOVER includes several interesting science articles that are related to some of the L.L.L. Winter Lecture themes.

One of the many DISCOVER articles that some readers may enjoy reading including the article on a global DNA research project now underway around the world to document the DNA of over 1.5 million + organisms with a cellular nucleus.

Your attendance at the upcoming Winter 2019 Later Life Learning Kingston Lecture series provides local citizens with some unique local life long learning opportunities that will both entertain you and help you to become a better-informed citizen. There are a wide range of important emerging disruptive global political trends, along with many scientific discoveries and related public policy subjects that will be discussed at the upcoming L.L.L. lecture series.

In this regard, some Later Life Learning patrons may want future access to some supplementary information articles either before or after hearing some of the noted Later Life Learning guest lecturers.

Seasons Greetings and all the best to you in 2019.

If you aren't yet aware of the www.Canada.ca/seniors  website it may be worth checking out and bookmarkig for your future family reference. This Canadian federal government website has about a dozen internal links to federal government services of potential interest to seniors and their families. For the record, there is a similar provincial government website that provides information for provincial government services of potential interest to seniors and/or their caregivers. For more information check out the government services section of your local phone book.

The website www.curiositystream.com  is a subscription based website that charges about $12.00 dollars (US) a year that will then give subscribers access to thousands of documentaries that cover subjects such as science, nature, history, technology, philosophy, society, lifestyle and the subject list goes on and on. There is presently a free seven-day trial period.

Hi  L.L.L. Life Long Learners,

For anybody who may be interested, The Globe and Mail, on Sept. 6th. reported that Steve Bannon will be debating the merits of political populist movements with David Frum at the Monk Debates to be held in Toronto at the Roy Thompson Hall, on Nov. 2nd. You can get more information on this particular upcoming Monk debate along with information on previous Monk's debates which can be accessed online at www.munkdebates.com  I expect the Globe and Mail will do a followup press article on this Monk debate theme sometime after November 2nd, 2018.

The Kingston Red Barons were considered ground-breakers in the world of women’s hockey. Wanted to let you know about this!

“She shoots! She scores!” Wednesday, October 17, 2018 - 7:30 p.m. Members of the fondly remembered Kingston Red Barons women’s hockey team will speak at a meeting of the Kingston Historical Society at the Seniors Centre, 56 Francis Street. This team, active in the '60s and ‘70s, lit up the sporting scene in Kingston and gave fans many memorable moments. Not only did they play exciting, smart hockey, they ran hockey schools for girls and organized (and won) provincial and local tournaments. Their achievements helped lay the groundwork for the development of female hockey in Canada - without their commitment and drive Canada would not be able today to boast of our expertise in women’s hockey. Some of the players were also instrumental in reviving women’s hockey at Queen’s and the establishment of the Canadian University Women's Hockey League in Canada; several have been inducted into the Kingston Sports Hall of Fame. Their 50th anniversary is coming up in 2019 - watch for more chances to renew your acquaintance with these outstanding women in the year ahead. Everyone welcome.
