Maintain Good Health During a Pandemic on Zoom (Registration Required)

Tuesday, September 20, 2022, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

In just two years, our world has changed dramatically. Covid-19 has become the greatest health challenge that humanity has faced in over 100 years. What can we learn from this experience? What can we as individuals, families, and health-care providers do to avoid falling victim to this highly contagious and often deadly virus? It is clear that lifestyle choices and incorporating a few select supplements can help people to prevent or reverse chronic diseases – diseases that can make this virus so devastating. At the same time, our food choices can be a way for us to reduce the demand for factory-farmed animals. These animals are a breeding ground for future pandemics that could be even worse than what we are now experiencing. Join Dr. Robert Breakey to learn how to put the odds in your favor when it comes to remaining vital and healthy in a pandemic-prone world.

Dr. Robert Breakey is a fifth-generation graduate of the University of Michigan Medical School. He completed his Family Medicine residency at the University of Wisconsin in 1984 and his Board certification with the American College of Lifestyle Medicine in 2019.

Corsets, Codpieces, and Other Mysteries of Costume History on Zoom

Thursday, September 29, 2022, 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Have you ever wondered what it is really like to wear a corset? Perhaps you have watched a movie in the past and thought, “Did they really wear that?” Historically, corsets and codpieces tell us about gender roles in particular time periods and places. Just as today’s suit and tie carry a different message for us than jeans and a t-shirt, historic fashions which may look silly to us now, once conveyed detailed information for those who observed them in their original context. In this class our presenter Melanie Schuessler Bond will cover several topics in costume history that tend to mystify modern people. She will give special emphasis to the way clothing is represented (and mis-represented) in the movies.

Safe Driving for Seniors: Tips from AAA on Zoom

Wednesday, October 5, 2022, 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.

AAA (American Automobile Association) is dedicated to keeping seniors driving for as long as safely possible. Older Americans today are healthier and more active than ever before and the aging baby boomer generation is the fastest-growing demographic in the U.S. In fact, seniors are outliving their ability to drive safely by an average of 7-10 years and, for the first time in history, we must plan for our “driving retirement” just as we plan for our financial retirement. However, as we age, our ability to drive safely is affected by natural changes to our bodies over time. It is our responsibility as drivers to stay educated in traffic laws, evolving vehicle technology, and the ever-changing roadway. AAA’s “Keeping the Keys” touches on these topics and discusses steps senior drivers can take to stay driving longer and safer.

Finally, they walked the path through the canyon to Petra. On the Mediterranean coast they learned about the historical importance of Tel Aviv, Jaffa, Caesarea, Haifa, and Akko, and explored the Golan Heights and Kfar Haruv, one of the many Kibbutzim overlooking the Sea of Galilee. They then toured the town of Nazareth, the Church of Annunciation, the Church of the Visitation, and finally, Bethlehem and the Church of the Nativity. Other days were spent retracing Jesus's life at sites such as Capernaum, the Sea of Galilee, Jacob's Well, Lazarus's Tomb, and Jerusalem.

Journey to Los Angeles and New Zealand (and back again)

Wednesday, October 26, 2022, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

This travelogue with world traveler George Jabol begins with a four-night layover in the City of Angels, Los Angeles (LA), prior to departure for our target destination of New Zealand – giving us time to explore an American city we had heard so much about but had never visited. Using our downtown hotel as a base, we played our role as tourists in Hollywood, on Mexican-themed Olvera Street, along Rodeo Drive, and at Universal Studios, where we rubbed shoulders with several movie stars. Nearby our hotel we visited architectural treasures like the stunning Walt Disney Concert Hall and the glamorous Millennium Biltmore Hotel, built in the star-studded past of 1923. Reluctantly leaving LA, we began our 12-hour flight for New Zealand, arriving in the large but very walkable city of Auckland. We had time for several hours of sightseeing in and around Auckland before boarding our small cruise ship, the Discovery, which served as our home for the next ten days as we navigated around New Zealand’s North and South Islands. Our first port of call took us to a down-under sheep farm where we saw sheep-shearing and a sheep dog trial. We also visited a thermal reserve, reminding us how seismically active New Zealand is, and the New Zealand Maori Arts & Crafts Institute, where we learned about the native Maori culture which pervades so much of New Zealand life. At the seacoast city of Napier we saw a city destroyed in 1931 by an earthquake but rebuilt almost entirely in the Art Deco architectural style. Passing through Cook Strait, which separates the North and South Islands, we proceeded down the Tasman Sea side of the South Island, where the scenery around the fjords is majestic. Milford Sound especially impressed us with its misty, craggy mountains. On the southeastern coast we visited the city of Dunedin, whose name is the old Gaelic word for Edinburgh in Scotland. We had a panoramic view of the city of Christchurch before stopping at New Zealand’s capital city of Wellington. Our cruise ship returned us full circle to Auckland, where we enjoyed nearly a full day of additional sightseeing before beginning our very long aerial journey back home again.

 

Jabol received his B.A. degree from Ohio’s Muskingum University, and a Ph.D. in English language and literature from the University of Michigan. Fully retired now from a career with the federal government, George creates photographic slide shows as a way to remember his travels and share them with others.

In addition, the pair will explore some of Michigan’s “most haunted” eateries like Detroit’s Whitney, Cadieux Cafe and Two-Way Inn. Also, Houdini (who considered Detroit his second home) died in Detroit after his last performance on Oct. 24, 1926.
