All are welcome to join this discussion group--an exploration of what it means to be white in a multi-cultural, multi-racial world. "Seeing White" is from a podcast series, Scene on Radio, out of Duke University, produced and hosted by John Biewen.
Dr. Chenjerai Kumayika serves as a critical partner with John in analyzing how racist structures have become institutionalized in America. Local resident, John Turner, is volunteering his time to facilitate the discussions.
Advanced registration is required. Listening assignments for each date will be distributed to you upon registration. Please sign up early to have time to listen to the podcasts! Call our office at 223-2518 or stop by at 58 Barre Street in Montpelier, 9-4, M-F to pre-register. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Bill April leads three AARP Fraudwatch Series talks over three months. The first is titled, “Weapons of Fraud” and is an overview of the leading scams, techniques of con-artists, and discussion of the steps to take to avoid victimization. While addressing a wide range of issues, it does not cover computer/cyber scams.

From Barbara Garton : "Turkmenistan is one of the most "off the beaten path" countries for visitors and its capital, Ashgabat, is a bizarre, theme-parked cross between Las Vegas, Dubai and Disneyland. It is hard to find words to describe it and yet most Americans, even well-traveled ones, have never heard of it. Ashgabat wasn't always so cut-off. It was founded on the ruins of one of the most flourishing cities on the Silk Road. However, since Turkmenistan's independence in 1991, after the fall of the Soviet Union, the city and the country have remained isolated from the rest of the world. The country is trying to show that it is opening up, but progress is slow. Ashgabat was the culmination of a journey along the Silk Road through many unheard of cities, and some more familiar ones associated with that part of the world, but Turkmenistan and its capital were, almost literally, the icing on the cake.”
