CSUN-al Gardening Series: Tomatoes

"ToMAYto." "ToMAHto." Hybrid. Heirloom. Early Girl. Better Boy. Dr. Wyche's Yellow. Dorothy's Green. Black Prince, Mountain Princess. Determinate. Indeterminate. Fruit. Vegetable â¦

No matter what they are called or how they are classified, tomatoes are considered by many people as among the most rewarding of home-grown foods. However, the many varieties available to the Southern California gardener can be a confusing assortment of names and designations.

California State University, Northridge's next CSUN-al Gardening Series class will offer help to home gardeners in determining which variety, or varieties, are right for them.

Scott Daigre, proprietor of Tomatomania and owner of Powerplant Garden Design, will share his strategy on tomato growing, provide tips on maximizing yield and explain why some tomatoes have letters after their names.

Registration for the free class is required. Email botanicgarden@csun.edu to request a space in the class or for more information. Driving and parking instructions, as well as the class meeting location, will be sent upon registration.

Rushing Waters, Rising Dreams: How the Arts Are Transforming a Community

The Northeast San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles is the second largest community of Mexicans and Central Americans in the United States with 500,000 people. The book explores twenty years of how the lack of neighborhood cultural spaces adversely affects struggling families and communities, and how the example of Tia Chucha's inspires a cultural awakening and a revival of the economy and community spirit. The book speaks to a need for a national arts policy of cultural spaces, arts education, independent bookstores, public art projects, and more.

15th Annual Keith Morton Memorial Lecture

5:00 pm - 7:00 pm - Whitsett Room, Sierra Hall 451
http://www.csun.edu/csbs/departments/anthropology/index.html

You are invited to join the Department of Anthropology for the 15th Annual Keith Morton Memorial Lecture, to be delivered by Dr. Normal Yoffee, Emeritus Professor of Anthropology and Near Eastern Studies, University of Michigan and now Adjunct Professor of Anthropology, University of Nevada, Las Vegas and Senior Fellow, Institute for the Study of the Ancient world, NYU.

Professor Yoffee will speak on "The Evolution of Fragility" in the context of sociopolitical and economic systems. He writes, "Archaeologists and others have characterized ancient states and "complex societies" as "integrated." That is, religious and political institutions recombined various social and economic groups into functioning wholes, either through consensus or repression. This process of integration has been described as "social evolution." In this talk, I examine these common suppositions. I begin with Mesopotamia, the region of my specific research, but drift dangerously into areas far from my expertise. Many early societies were far from integrated and stable, but the opposite, fragile. I explore the nature and implications of social fragility."

Please RSVP to the Department of Anthropology:  818-677-3331

Women in Ancient Syria

4:00 pm - 6:00 pm - Whitsett Room, Sierra Hall 451

The Department of History is hosting a lecture by Dr. Mark Chavalas of the University of Wisconsin-LA Crosse.  Dr. Chavalas is a distinguished alumnus of the History Department, and taught here as a part-time faculty between 1985 and 1989.

In the past forty years, Syria has become a major center of archaeological investigation.  Among the thousands of cuneiform tablets excavated at the cities of Mari, Emar, Ebla, Terqa, and Shubat-Enlil, are a large number of letters concerning women during the first half of the 2nd millennium B.C., contemporary with Hammurabi's Babylon.  This talk will provide a glance at the life of women from these letters, some of which were written by women themselves.

Mark W. Chavalas is Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, where he has taught since 1989.  His Ph.D. is from UCLA, where he studied ancient Near Eastern history, archaeology, and languages, specializing in Mesopotamia.  He has had fellowships from various universities, including Harvard, Yale, Cal Berkeley, Brown, Cornell, the Univ. of Arizona, and Wisconsin-Madison.  He also has had nine seasons of archaeological field experience in Syria.  His previous books include the co-edited New Horizons in the Study of  Ancient Syria (1992), Mesopotamia and the Bible (2002), Life and Culture in the Ancient Near East (CDL Press 2003), Emar:  The History, Religion, and Culture of a Syrian Town in the Late Bronze Age (1996), and Women in the Ancient Near East (in press).

11:00 am - 9:00 pm - USU Northridge Center
http://www.csun.edu/sustainability

The Institute for Sustainability is hosting its annual Water Day event on Wednesday March 20th in the USU Northridge Center (World Water Day- the official UN-designated day dedicated to water issues is March 22nd) from 11:00 am - 2:00 pm. There are two separate sessions (to coincide with class times), from 11:00 - 12:15pm and from 12:30 - 1:45pm.

In the first session, you will have the opportunity to see if you can taste the difference between bottled versus tap water. We will also show (part of) the documentary "Tapped" which deals with the issues of bottled water and privatization of water, and have a facilitated discussion of issues surrounding bottled water including the results of the taste test.

In the second session we will discuss water for the developing world and will be hosting a presentation by the Thirst Project (www.thirstproject.org). Is the water safe to drink? Not for 1 billion people! What can YOU do? The Thirst Project raised $2.6 million and have given 100,000 access to clean water. Thirst Project was started by students just like YOU!

At 7pm in the USU Theatre, we will be co-hosting a film screening of "Over Troubled Waters" with Food and Water Watch. An engaging discussion with experts will follow the film. Find out about the state of out water and what you can do. The fate of California's water is in your hands!

Please come and invite your students to join us for this educational event.

KRZYSZTOF KIESLOWSKI RETROSPECTIVE

Polish filmmaker Krzysztof Kieslowski was a leading director of documentaries, television and feature films from the 1970s to the 1990s. The social and moral themes of contemporary times became the focus of his many significant films and his unique humanist treatment of those themes secured his place as one of the greatest of modern film directors.

Decalogue VII & VIII (Dekalog VII & VIII) (1988) -- 120 mins.

The Decalogue continues with episodes seven and eight of the series. Decalogue VII concerns a woman abducting her own child, who has been raised by her parents as her sister, and Decalogue VIII is about the complicated issue of bearing false witness.

KRZYSZTOF KIESLOWSKI RETROSPECTIVE

Polish filmmaker Krzysztof Kieslowski was a leading director of documentaries, television and feature films from the 1970s to the 1990s. The social and moral themes of contemporary times became the focus of his many significant films and his unique humanist treatment of those themes secured his place as one of the greatest of modern film directors.

The Double Life of Veronique  (La Double vie de Veronique/Podwojne zycie Weroniki) (1991) -- 98 mins.

Kieslowski's international breakthrough remains one of his most well-known and beloved films. The Double Life of Veronique is an unforgettable symphony of emotion and a mysterious, metaphysical rumination on identity, love, and human intuition.

The year was 1967. While playing a rabbit in a Winnie-the-Pooh play here on campus, 22-year-old senior David Gerrold wrote and sold what was to become one of the most beloved Star Trek episodes ever: The Trouble with Tribbles.  Mr. Gerroldâs career as a writer has since spawned more than 50 novels, a dozen-plus teleplays, and the film The Martian Child, starring John Cusack, based on Gerroldâs autobiographical tale of a single gay man adopting an at-risk youth.  It earned Gerrold both the coveted Hugo and Nebula Awards.

Now the year is 2013 and Mr. Gerrold is back at his alma mater, back on the same theatre stages that launched his career, workshopping a new play entitled UNCLE DADDY WILL NOT BE INVITED.  The one-act production looks at two men planning their wedding--or so it appears on the surface.  Audiences are well cautioned that all is not as it seems. 

 The two performances, 8pm on April 30th and May 1st, promise to be some of the hottest tickets in town and cetain to sell out.  Touted in Variety and other industry media, the $12 general admission tickets will soon go on sale but CSUN students can get the advance seats now for $5 by showing their ID at the Student Union Ticket Office. The performance itself takes place in Nordhoff Hallâs Little Theater (NH121).

Hosted by Associated Studentâs Theatre Guild, the play is directed by Gerrold and stars two current student actors: Steven Brogan and Alex Manolopoulos, previously seen this semester in CSUNâs RAGTIME and ROMEO & JULIET respectively.  Producers for the Guild are Brianna McDonnell and Daniel Guerrero, and Cara Failer is the Stage Manager.  Audiences are cautioned about mature themes and adult language.
