Why Earth Needs an International Global Ocean Observing System

The ocean impacts Earth’s climate and weather, provides critical food and energy resources, plays an enormous role in the global economy, and directly effects the well-being of coastal communities. Despite the critical role oceans play, only recent technical breakthroughs have allowed people to maintain a sustained presence in the sea and thoroughly understand its wide range of societal benefits. Dr. Oscar Schofield will review these new discoveries and provide examples of how they directly benefit society while creating new diplomatic challenges and opportunities. Schofield will also review plans and strategies for developing a global observing system ranging from deep ocean, melting polar regions, and coastal waters.



North Mississippi Allstars

North Mississippi Allstars are back with Prayer for Peace and couldn't we all use one of those right about now? Founded in 1996 by brothers Luther (guitar and vocals) and Cody Dickinson (drums, piano, synth bass, programming and vocals), the now venerable band are entering their third decade with perhaps the most vital album of their career. Recorded in studios across America during North Mississippi Allstars' 2016 tour, Prayer for Peace sees the Dickinsons weaving their bred-to-the-bone musical sensibility with unstoppable energy, rhythmic reinvention, and a potent message of positivity, family, and hope. As ever, songs like R.L. Burnside's "Long Haired Doney" and the impassioned title track pay homage to the country blues legacy while simultaneously pushing it into contemporary relevance with fatback funk, electronic innovation, slippery soul, and pure unadulterated rock 'n' roll.

James Holbrook: "Cultural Imperialism & Unintended Consequences: The Iraq War"

James Holbrook, Professor of Law, and Valeri Craigle, Head of Digital Publishing at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, will explore the dangers of cultural imperialism in foreign policy and the costs of unintended consequences arising from the Iraq War. In 2008, this law school received funding from the U.S. State Department to provide legal assistance to the nascent government of Iraq. The goal was to promote a stable country, but the failure of the initial invasion and occupation to grasp the deeper roots of Iraqi society made this nearly impossible. Holbrook and Craigle discuss these challenges in their book “A Long Way From A Way Forward: Our Journey Through Legal Reform in Post-War Iraq.” A Q&A and refreshments will follow. The lecture is free, open to the public, and made possible by a grant from Utah Humanities. This event is organized by Books & Bridges — a community institute of ideas and conversation. Our mission is to facilitate discussion on the best of human thought. We explore the wisdoms of the world and apply them to modern life. We have no political, religious or ideological affiliation. In a society divided by uncivil discourse, the beauty of the humanities—novels, history, philosophy, poetry, ethics and epics—lifts us to our better angels. In our busy world we need space for friends and fellow learners to do a little more heart-to-heart and mind-to-mind.
