A Message from Dean McNutt

College of Extended and International Education, CSUDH

By now, many OLLI Members have heard

me use the phrase, “The College of

Extended and International Education

is all about K-80 Education.” It’s a play

on the term, K-12 or K-16 education.

What I mean by that is CEIE provides a

learning continuum, whether a summer reading program for

kindergarteners, a project management training program for adult

learners looking to advance at work or OLLI Members reading a

play or playing social tennis for seniors.

Going forward, I will use the term, “K-100 education” and here’s

why. I was asked to make opening remarks at our fall Osher

Life Long Learning Institute (OLLI) Open House. The Extended

Education auditorium was filled with new and continuing

members. After describing the 50 academic, continuing and

lifelong learning courses we have in our portfolio, I said how much

I believe in K-80 education. After my brief talk, a new member

came to me and said, “Dean McNutt, I take umbrage with your

remarks about K-80 learning.” I was taken aback by her comment

and thought she might even be joking with me, but she was not.

“You should know,” she said, “I am 95 years of age, and I am still

learning through OLLI classes at CSUDH.” Much to my chagrin,

I discovered we have several OLLI and Omnilore Members in their

90’s who are engaged in active learning. So next time you hear

me talk about the depth and breadth of our membership and the

myriad opportunities we have for continuous learning, listen for

the phrase, “The College of Extended and International Education

is all about K-100 Education.”

With that in mind, be sure to pick up your own copy of the

OLLI summer course catalog. There are at least 20 new programs

and topics for your consideration.

Finally, I’d like to thank all the donors who contributed to our

Membership campaign this year. OLLI cannot thrive without

donors, dedicated volunteers, staff, Extended Education and

CSUDH. We look forward to another great summer of exciting

programming. See you around campus!

Beyond Therapy by Christopher Durang

June 5, 12

This fast-paced romantic comedy is about the

bizarre first date of Bruce and Prudence, their

lunatic therapists, Bruce’s jealous, gun-wielding

homosexual lover Stuart, Stuart’s over-protective

mother, and a host of odd New York characters.

Will Bruce and Prudence find love amidst all the craziness?

Hamlet , by William Shakespeare

July 17, 24, 31

A tale of murder, revenge, and a man who can’t

make up his mind. Spurred on to take revenge

for his father’s murder by his father’s ghost,

but wracked throughout the play by scruples

and doubts. Hamlet’s failure to act leaves a trail

of corpses ending in a grand and fatal finale!

Ghosts, murder, plots, lies, insanity, poison,

stabbing, drowning, and duels: this dysfunctional family has a little

something for everyone.

King Lear by William Shakespeare

August 14, 21, 28

The aging king of Britain, King Lear, decides to

step down from the throne and divide his kingdom

evenly among his three daughters; but first he puts

them through a test: each must tell him how much

she loves him. The older two give him flattering

answers. But the youngest and favorite remains

silent. Rejection, betrayal, insanity are the results

of Lear’s shallow and selfish decisions. Everyone gets what they

deserve…and more.

ART, CULTURE & LANGUAGE

OLLI Conversation Partners

an OLLI English Corner Event

NEW!

The ESL (English as a Second Language) and American Culture

Program (ACP) at CSUDH is looking for “conversation partners”

for casual conversations with visiting Chinese students (Jr/Sr High

School age). No Chinese is required, just a wiliness to interact with

these young adults from China who want to practice their English.

The phrase English Corner (From Wikipedia) commonly applies

to informal periods of instruction in English held at schools and

colleges in China. These sessions are sometimes led by native

Chinese teachers or less often by teachers who are native speakers

of English. The emphasis in these sessions is on improving the oral

English skills of the participants. Often the activities in primary and

secondary schools focus on cultural activities such as Halloween,

Thanksgiving and Christmas among other festivals and holidays

common in English speaking countries. As an informal session the

topics can be far ranging. Usually English Corner activities are held

on Friday afternoons after lunch in many schools.

Diabetes and your Feet!

NEW!

People with diabetes are prone to foot problems that develop due

to high blood sugar levels in the bloodstream. Over time, diabetes

may cause nerve damage such as tingling, pain, and ulcers on

your feet. Unfortunately, not many people know how to prevent

and treat their diabetic foot pain, resulting in swelling, abnormal

alignment in feet and risk of amputation.

Because diabetes is affecting many people of all ages, Dr. Mario

Pacada invites you for an engaging lecture about prevention,

symptoms, and treatment methods about this growing epidemic.

During his lecture, Dr. Pacada will provide ideas to reduce stress

levels and how to live a healthier lifestyle. Don’t miss out on

this opportunity to discuss your feet problems, concerns and

receive professional advice from Dr. Pacada who experience years

consulting patients and the community to care for their diabetes

and feet.

HISTORY AND SOCIAL SCIENCE

Into the Northwest Passage

“In the summer of 2012 a group of adventurers boarded an

expedition ship Clipper Adventurer in the Greenland fjord of

Kangerlusiak and started an incredible cruise across the Arctic

through the

Northwest Passage.

After visiting Innuit

villages along the

Greenland coast,

they crossed the

Davis Strait and

entered the Northwest

Passage at

Lancaster Sound

and cruised across

Nunavut, Canada

along the same route successfully pioneered by the famous

Norwegian polar explorer Roald Amundsen back in 1905.

Rich Abele is a veteran of numerous trips to the Arctic including the

North Pole. Rich will take you on a photographic and oral journey

to remote islands in the far northern region of Nunavut (northern

Canada) where he encountered huge glaciers, brilliant icebergs,

abandoned Hudson Bay Company outposts and former Royal

Canadian Mounted Police stations. In addition to sighting

numerous polar bears, walruses, musk oxen and innumerable

species of arctic birds, they also landed on Beechey Island where

some crewmembers of the ill-fated 1845 Franklin Expedition are

buried. Few ships have

transited the Northwest

Passage without encountering

channels choked

with ice; fortunately, 2012

was a relatively “warm

year” in the Arctic.

The Teagirl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See

The story begins with Li-yan, an Akha girl whose family spends its

days picking Pu’er tea in the mountains of the Yunnan Province in

China for the equivalent of $25 a month. The Akha are a distinct

ethnic group and hill tribe whose beliefs are animistic (everything

has a spirit)—and emphasizes their profound connection to the

natural world. This story follows a number of traditional childbirths,

superstitions, adoption, life in the mountains, and coming to

America in 1988. It’s about a girl who loses her daughter and

leaves her traditional world behind.

San Gabriel Mission Docent-led Tour

NEW!

Founded in 1771 by Junipero Serra, this fortress-like structure with

five-foot thick walls and narrow windows is a design not found

in any other mission. Located nine miles east of downtown Los

Angeles, at one time it covered several hundred thousand acres;

one fourth of the wealth of California missions in stock and grain

was credited to San Gabriel. The original vaulted roof was of a

Moorish design patterned after the cathedral at Cordova, Spain,

with slender capped buttresses and a six-belled campanario. One

bell, which weighs a ton, can be heard eight miles away. The

hammered copper baptismal font was a gift of King Carlos III

of Spain and the six priceless altar statues were brought around

the Horn from Spain in 1791. The winery, kitchen gardens and

graveyard are still intact and the museum exhibits old books, Indian

paintings and parchments.

The 21 missions that comprise California’s Historic Mission Trail are

all located on or near Highway 101, which roughly traces El Camino

Real (The Royal Road) named in honor of the Spanish monarchy

which financed the expeditions into California in the quest for

empire. From San Diego to Los Angeles, the historic highway is now

known as Interstate 5. From Santa Clara to San Francisco, the road

is called State Highway 82. North of San Francisco, Highway 101

again picks up the trail to the mission at San Rafael. From there,

State Highway 37 leads to the last mission at Sonoma.

SPECIAL EVENTS

AARP Driver Safety

This class will promote safe driving and help older drivers maintain

their mobility and independence. One of the most significant

demographic factors changing in our nation’s future is the aging

of the population. The number of people age 50+ has grown

significantly in the past decade and this segment will continue

to increase more rapidly than any other age group in the United

States. The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that by the 2030, one in

four drivers will be 65 or older, which translates into more than 30

million drivers!

This course is intended to help drivers live more independently as

they age and remain safe on today’s roads. Since the program’s

inception in 1979, more than 15 million participants have

completed the course. The course will cover defensive driving

techniques and:

• Maintaining proper following distance

• Minimizing the effect of dangerous blind spots

• Limiting driver distractions such as, eating, smoking, and

cell phone use

• Properly using safety belts, air bags, and all car features

• Effects of medication on driving

• Maintaining physical flexibility

• Monitoring the driving skills and capabilities of yourself

and others

Please join us in this fun and informative class. Upon completion,

attendees receive an auto insurance discount certificate good for

three years. Please consult your insurance agent for details.

(AFL) America’s First Ladies

Their husbands have been President but First Ladies have interesting

lives and stories too. One of the most underestimated—and

challenging—positions in the world, the First Lady of the United

States must be many things: an inspiring leader with a forwardthinking

agenda of her own; a savvy politician, skilled at navigating

the treacherous rapids of Washington; a wife and mother

operating under constant scrutiny; and an able CEO responsible

for the smooth operation of countless services and special events

at the White House. Compare and contrast the two most recent

First Ladies for example. Some have helped shape the country’s

history—think Eleanor Roosevelt—while others have been absolute

supporters of their husbands—think Lady Bird Johnson—and others

have been forces in their own right—think Hillary Clinton. There are

many books that touch on the lives of and impacts of First Ladies,

so choosing a text should be easy.

Nick Bostrom in Superintelligence, and has been promoted by

Ray Kurzweil and worried about by Elon Musk and others.

On Saudi Arabia: Its People, Past,

Religions, Fault Line—And Future,

by Karen Elliot House (September 2012)

(ARA) On Saudi Arabia: Its People, Past,

Religions, Fault Line—and Future

We hear a lot about Saudi Arabia and the antics of Crown Prince

Muhammed bin Salim in the news these days and wonder why the

United States continues to align ourselves with this rogue nation.

Why is Saudi Arabia different from other Arab states? How did it

become that way? And what are the forces that keep it in place?

Karen Elliot House, former diplomatic correspondent, foreign editor

and publisher of the Wall Street Journal, is the author of this

authoritative book on present-day Saudi Arabia. She spent five years

visiting Saudi Arabia, observing, talking to people and analyzing

what she learned all in preparation for this book. She interviewed

Saudi princes as well as the poorest citizens and, being a woman,

had access to Saudi women and their stories. Ms. House presents

many issues including widespread poverty, restlessness of the

citizens and clergy, royal family conflicts, suppression of women

and failed attempts to broaden the economy.

(ASP) Art and Science of Prediction

Superforecasters are clever (with a good mental attitude), but not

necessarily geniuses. Accurately selected amateur forecasters (and

the confidence they had in their forecasts) were often more accurately

tuned than experts. If you’re wondering if there’s any way to

predict an election, an economic crisis or even a war, our authors

have an answer. They use psychology and political science and a

lot of common sense combined into a general approach to decision

making, and they tap into what’s often called the wisdom of

crowds. Our common reading is a fascinating book and it will make

you think. In particular, to think about the future. Superforecasting

has been termed “The most important book on decision making

since Daniel Kahneman’s Thinking, Fast and Slow.”

(DOC) The Documentary Movie

Not long ago, if you wanted to see a documentary film, you

had to take a course, go to a movie festival, or catch it on PBS.

Nowadays we can find documentaries on our TVs through the

magic of the Internet, Netflix and other online sources or from our

libraries. While your basic Hollywood studio movie is primarily made

to make money, a documentary is the expression of its creator’s

personal passion. This S/DG will explore the world of modern

masters of the documentary. Presenters will choose a film that class

members can view at home before each class session, and then

present for discussion whatever facets of the film they choose—the

contents or subject, the techniques, the background, the director’s

focus on the subject, and its effect on public opinion. Many

Omniloreans after taking this class have been amazed at the

diversity of what is available and how many of these films are

unexpectedly enriching.

Common Reading:

The Sunflower: On the Possibilities

and Limitations of Forgiveness

by Simon Wiesenthal

(revised/expanded edition, 2008)

(FGV) Forgiveness: Possibilities and Limitations

In this important book, fifty-three distinguished men and women

respond to Wiesenthal’s questions. They are theologians, political

leaders, writers, jurists, psychiatrists, human rights activists,

Holocaust survivors, and victims of attempted genocides in Bosnia,

Cambodia, China and Tibet. Their responses, as varied as their

experiences of the world, remind us that Wiesenthal’s questions

are not limited to events of the past.

The first portion of the book is by Simon Wiesenthal himself.

It is about his time in a concentration camp and his daily journey

to a hospital to work. As he passes a cemetery that has sunflowers

growing on the graves, he reflects on how he will be remembered

and how he will not have flowers or butterflies on his burial spot.

The second part of the book has over 50 essays by people like

Sven Alkakaj, the Dali Lama, Dennis Prager, Mathieu Ricard,

Desmond Tutu, etc.

(GOV) The Fifth Risk: Why Government Matters

The title “Fifth Risk” comes from an analysis of the great risks

confronted by a department such as Energy, which worries about

nuclear accidents or an attack on the electrical grid. The “fifth risk”

was the bland-sounding category of “program management” that

could be defined as the tendency to respond to long-term risks with

short-term solutions.

As Lewis writes, neither Donald Trump nor his closest advisers had

much appreciation, let alone reverence, for the functions of the

government they were about to inherit after the 2016 election.

Instead, they seemed to have an indifference bordering on contempt.

Lewis examines the real-world consequences of such an attitude,

using examples from three Government departments: Energy,

Commerce, and Agriculture.

Common Reading:

The Fifth Risk, by Michael Lewis

(October 2018)

(MAG) Magic of the Universe

We don’t consider someone educated unless they’re familiar with

literature, etc. Yet we think nothing of being scientifically illiterate.

Here’s a chance to fix that. In just seven chapters and 80 pages

Carlo Rovelli wrote a N Y Times bestseller that truly broadens your

horizons. It covers the biggest ideas in physics, the biggest ideas

about our universe. It was called Elegant and Poetic by NPR.

Physics is the concrete explanation of the magic of the universe.

It is the search for the truth about how everything in the universe

operates interdependently on a grand scale (galaxies) and on the

minute scale. This search, at times, has been fraught with the real

danger of losing your life. Galileo was almost burned at the stake,

commuted to life imprisoned under house arrest, for simply saying

that the Earth revolved around the Sun.

Common Reading:

Neil Simon’s Memoirs, by Neil Simon

(December 2017)

Neil Simon’s Memoirs

is currently out of

print but is available

in Kindle versions.

The print version to

be available again by

the time the

class starts.

(NSI) The Creative Genius of Neil Simon

Recently deceased at age 91, Neil Simon wrote over 30 plays and

films. He contributed to numerous TV shows and to the humor of

many comedians. This S/DG will explore his background, life and

work. We will be inspired by his genius and learn more about

comedy in America.

Class members will each choose a play, film or other creation of

Simon’s; the entire class will watch it at home. The presenter will

discuss the film or play, giving background information. Questions

will be prepared for various chapters of the book in an order

determined by the class.

Common Reading:

Imperial Twilight: The Opium War

and the End of China’s Last Golden

Age, by Stephen R. Platt (May 2018)

(OWC) The Opium War In China

Few historical events were more significant in China’s modern

history than the Opium War. It ended in a humiliating defeat and a

treaty which set a disastrous pattern for the century to come.

“The symbolic power of the Opium War is limitless. It set in motion

the eventual fall of the Qing dynasty—which in turn led to the rise

of nationalism and communism. The Opium War has come to stand

for everything that today’s China seeks to put behind it.” In his new

book Imperial Twilight, well-regarded historian Stephen Platt

dramatically tells the story of “one of the most shockingly unjust

wars in the annals of imperial history. This riveting narrative of

relations between China and the West has important implications

for today’s uncertain and everchanging political climate.”

Common Reading:

How Paris Became Paris: The Invention

of the Modern City,

by Joan DeJean (April 2015)

(PAR) How Paris Became Paris

At the beginning of the seventeenth century, Paris was known for

isolated monuments but had not yet put its “brand” on urban

space. Like other European cities, it was still emerging from its

medieval past. But in a mere century Paris would be transformed

into the modern and mythic city we know today.

A century of planned development made Paris both beautiful and

exciting. It gave people reasons to be out in public as never before

and as nowhere else. And it gave Paris its modern identity as a

place that people dreamed of seeing. By 1700, Paris had become

the capital that would revolutionize our conception of the city and

of urban life.

PEER-LED CLASSES (Omnilore)

(PLT) The Seven Basic Plots to Stories

It is often heard that there are only so many story lines or plots to

all of the novels, movies, plays and tales that we read or see. Now

here is an author that has both spelled them out, and explained

how many stories we are familiar with fit into his categories.

He discusses stories as varied as those from the Greeks, the

Movies, Fairy Tales, Shakespeare and contemporary literature.

From Gilgamesh (the oldest written story known) and Beowulf

to Star Wars and the Lord of the Rings. He shows how they all

fit into his scheme of plots.

His seven plots are: (1) Overcoming the Monster, (2) Rags to

Riches, (3) The Quest, (4) Voyage and Return, (5) Comedy,

(6) Tragedy, and (7) Rebirth.

Common Reading:

The Seven Basic Plots: Why We

Tell Stories, by Christopher Booker

(January 31, 2005)

(RAC) Learning To Talk About Racism

What does it mean to be white in a society that proclaims race is

meaningless, yet is deeply divided by race? In the face of racial

inequity, most white people cannot answer that. This S/DG will look

at the factors that make this question so difficult: mis-education

about what racism is; ideologies such as individualism and colorblindness;

segregation; and the belief that to be complicit in

racism is to be an immoral person. These factors contribute to

what is considered white racial illiteracy. White people in the

United States often grow up without having to talk or think about

race and fail to build up the tolerance needed for discussions of

any depth on the topic. But racism is a topic of frequent social

discourse.

This S/DG is designed to take an honest and current look at racism

and says it’s time for white people to practice building stamina for

the critical examination of white identity, to break out of the cycle

of defensiveness and engage more constructively in conversations

about racism.

White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for

White People to Talk About Racism,

Common Reading:

Tyrant: Shakespeare on Politics,

by Stephen Greenblatt (May 2018)

[Note: This book is sold in the UK

under the title Tyrant: Shakespeare On

Power; same book—just different title]

(STY) Shakespeare’s Tyrants

Omnilore has a deep fondness for Shakespeare’s plays and the bard

himself. This S/DG would look at the playwright’s insight into bad

(and often mad) rulers. As an aging, tenacious Elizabeth I clung to

power, a talented playwright probed the social causes, the psychological

roots, and the twisted consequences of tyranny like Richard

III, Macbeth, and Lear. Shakespeare delved into the lust for absolute

power and the catastrophic consequences of its execution.

With uncanny insight, he shone a spotlight on the infantile psychology

and unquenchable narcissistic appetites of demagogues—and

the cynicism and opportunism of the various enablers and hangers-on

who surround them—and imagined how they might be

stopped. The political and social aspects of a society in crisis fascinated

Shakespeare and shaped some of his most memorable plays.

Common Reading:

Weather: An Illustrated History,

by Andrew Revkin (May 1, 2018)

(WEA) The History of Weather

From Amazon: Colorful and captivating, Weather: An Illustrated

History hopscotches through 100 meteorological milestones and

insights, from prehistory to today’s headlines and tomorrow’s

forecasts. Bite-sized narratives, accompanied by exciting

illustrations, touch on such varied topics as Earth’s first atmosphere,

the physics of rainbows, the deadliest hailstorm, Groundhog Day,

the invention of air conditioning, London’s Great Smog, the Year

Without Summer, our increasingly strong hurricanes, and the

Paris Agreement on climate change. Written by a prominent and

award-winning environmental author and journalist, this is a

groundbreaking illustrated book that traces the evolution of

weather forecasting and climate science.

CODES OF CONDUCT

OLLI @ CSUDH

Codes of Conduct

NEW!

Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at California State University,

Dominguez Hills (OLLI@CSUDH) is a community of active

mature lifelong learners. The College of Extended and International

Education (CEIE) is committed to maintaining a safe and

healthy learning environment for OLLI Members, students, faculty,

and staff. Many of our programs offer a forum for a lively

and sometimes passionate exchange of views. Members of our

learning community are expected to follow principles of courtesy

and mutual respect that promote reasoned discourse and engage

in responsible behaviors that reflect well upon the university.

To be civil to one another, to others in the campus community,

and contribute positively to OLLI Members, students, faculty,

staff, and university life.

Violations include conduct that threatens or endangers the

health or safety of any person within or related to the University

community, including but not limited to physical abuse, threats,

intimidation, harassment, sexual misconduct, denigrating others’

views or opinions, offensive or abusive language, disruptive

classroom conduct, discrimination, and monopolizing discussions.

Failure to treat ideas, viewpoints, the classroom environment,

and interests of members in the community with respect and

civility compromises the intellectual climate at OLLI and cannot

be tolerated.

The OLLI Director and CEIE leadership are responsible for ensuring

that the Code of Conduct is being followed in all OLLI-sponsored

programs. Members who do not adhere to these principles or

interfere with the goals of our learning community may be
