    In your life you want things done fairly. If one person is treated one way and another arbitrarily, we would scream about justice. That is why procedure and following rules in law make it fair and efficient. These four sessions will consider your procedural rights and why they matter and how they are applied in court and interesting cases. We will investigate the topics of jurisdiction, pleadings, discovery, and decisions about the case. These topics are the foundation for understanding civil procedures in court. This course is based in part on lectures from The Great Courses: Law School for Everyone.

    College athletic programs on the whole used to be clean - USED TO BE!!! Professional athletes used to be role models. The most amateur of amateur sports programs, high school athletics and summer leagues for youths and teenagers, now have mommies and daddies wanting a say in everything. What happened here? College athletics are big business - The revenue at the Penn State football program is so excessive it pays for the remainder of the athletic programs at the school. Professional athletes are out of control and amateur programs run on the win at all costs philosophy. We will discuss in detail various problems exposed in athletics at all levels, evaluate solutions and possible changes, and discuss the underlying causes behind the problems, and what needs to be eliminated so the problems do not continue to occur.

    The vast areas in Africa challenge our understanding of violent conflicts there. This three-week series attempts to illuminate the background of conflicts in two of those areas. The first presentation surveys the roots and dynamics of war in Democratic Republic of the Congo, which has taken 5.5 million lives since 1996, more than Syria, Iraq or Vietnam, and involved nine countries. The second and third presentations examine the rising influence of al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and Boko Haram in West Africa’s Sahel, and the American stake in the region.

    World geopolitics are changing and what is happening in Asia is a big reason for it. China has been the headliner, but India and the five countries of Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore that border the Indian Ocean, although long overshadowed, are undergoing equally dramatic changes and merit spotlighting. Indeed, this region may become the counter to China’s expansionism.

    Wholeness is the key theme of the anthology on environment. We are one with the natural world, not just with the millions of other living species with whom we share it. But, we are also with the elements of air, water and earth of which we are composed. Sometimes we need to stand back and view our world in perspective - from the beginnings of the universe to the littleness of our affairs. Olaf Stapledon once wrote: ...and on the skin of this little grain all the swarms of men and women have lived in labor and blindness with intermittent joy and intermittent lucidity of spirit. It is that lucidity of spirit that this book celebrates. We will be reading some twenty writings (10 in the FALL; ten in the SPRING) beginning with Katahdin by Thoreau and ending with Dimensions of Deformity by Gordon Miller. In addition we will be seeing a DVD on the Environment. The book Keeping Things Whole may be purchased from the Great Books Foundation (1-800-222-5870). Also, you should purchase Pilgrim at Thinker Creek (explanation to follow in class). There will be a charge for printing.
