John Ungashick

 

"The Syllabus of Errors, the Church versus the Modern World"


In 1864 Pope Pius IX issued the Syllabus of Errors which was a list of 80 statements which he considered erroneous. They were a direct attack on liberalism, modernism, moral relativism and the secularization of society. John will cover the religious and political situation in mid 19th century Europe which led to the issuance of the syllabus, discuss the syllabus itself and then relate certain items which he personally experienced as a 1950's Catholic School kid and how the Second Vatican Council in the mid 1960's steered Catholic teaching in a different direction although some proponents of the Syllabus still exist in the Church.

Bobby Jackson

 

"Storm Chasing: Is It Really Like in 'Twister'?"


Storm chasing, often overdramatized in movies such as "Twister" and "Into the Storm," is, while still a dangerous undertaking, a much more mundane yet still thrilling experience than Hollywood makes it out to be. Bobby will share his personal experiences chasing thunderstorms that have produced hail and tornadoes in Illinois, Missouri, and Iowa. Many misconceptions about storm chasing will also be debunked.

 

About Bobby Jackson:

Bobby Jackson, born in Georgia but raised in Washington, Illinois, is no stranger to the types of dangerous weather that can occur in the Midwest. Jackson's passions always included studying the weather. As a kid, he would constantly watch the Weather Channel and idolized Jim Cantore. His passions led him to pursue a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign studying the microscale characteristics of clouds. After a brief tenure at the University of Wyoming where his research interests gravitated towards studying thunderstorms, he then proceeded to study thunderstorms in the Tropics as a researcher at Argonne National Laboratory. When he is not in the lab, he can be found chasing storms, playing board games, reading science fiction, or hiking.

Glenda Kenyon

 

"Fair Housing: Why You Should Be Engaged"


Glenda Kenyon, who works as a property manager, will describe fair housing regulations. She will explain why we can't just leave it up to the professionals and government to sort it out--whole communities have to be participating in fair housing for it to work as intended.
