Despite his death 70 years ago, Adolf Hitler continues to spark controversy. Inexplicably der Führer advanced by a year or two the long-planned German invasion of the Soviet Union (Operation Barbarossa). He also instigated a baffling delay for reinforcing the beleaguered German defenders on D-Day. These strategic errors ultimately cost Germany the war. This class will consider these military blunders in light of Hitler’s ticking sense of his approaching mortality due to his neurological and cardiac disease. Medical evidence will demonstrate a negative impact existed on his decision-making abilities fashioned by his life-shortening Parkinson’s disease with its associated behavioral changes and by his progressive, largely untreatable at the time, coronary artery disease.

An eBay business can be as complex, large, and time-consuming as any brick-and-mortar business, or as small as a plastic tote in one corner of a room. In this short overview, you will be introduced to the idea of creating a basic eBay store in your spare time and building it up, depending on the financial and hourly input, to the level you wish. It will cover how eBay selling works, give you some idea of the pitfalls and issues you may encounter, and walk you through the basics from first steps, to first sale, to making the decision to quit your day job. There will be a Q&A session at the end of the presentation.

Friedrich Ernst, known as the “Father of German Immigration,” wrote such glowing letters about his new home in Texas, that Germans began arriving in small groups. Then, twenty-one German nobleman began a poorly-planned immigration program that led thousands of settlers––many to their death––to the barren shore of Matagorda Bay. Some of the immigrants remained on the coast and began a community that grew into the thriving seaport of Indianola. The first wave that continued inland established New Braunfels in 1845 and then moved on the following year to begin Fredericksburg. German immigrants spread out across Texas coloring the landscape with handwork and success.

Very few (if any) places in the United States can claim a geological past as interesting as the area within the triangle of Kerrville to Llano to Austin.  This area has experienced it all!  Earthquakes, volcanoes, great mountain ranges, enormous seas and cave formation are geological processes that have left their evidence in this area if we only look around. This class will examine the geological history of the Hill Country by focusing on the uplift of the Edwards Plateau, the Enchanted Rock area, Longhorn Caverns and the Balcones Fault along with Pilot Knob, McKinney Falls, and the evidence left by the great Cretaceous Inland Seaway.  So, let’s all be geologists for a while and take a virtual field trip to study the great geology of this most interesting area!

We live our everyday lives within a complex web of performances and texts, but we barely pay attention to these vernacular artifacts.  In fact, they are often invisible to us. These performances and texts are significant, nonetheless, because they tell us who we are, what we believe, and how we respond to the uncertainties of the world around us.  It is my hope that after attending this course, you can never look at everyday life the same way again.  Price includes lunch.
