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 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 Fall course catalog. There are at least 23 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 Fall of exciting

programming. See you around campus!

Scout, and her brother, Jeremy are raised by their

widowed father, Atticus Finch, a prominent lawyer

committed the crime.

Some Like It Hot screenplay by Billy Wilder

October 9, 16

After witnessing a Mafia murder, slick saxophone

player Joe, and his long-suffering buddy Jerry,

improvise a quick plan to escape from Chicago

with new lives. Disguising themselves as women,

they join an all-female jazz band and hop a train

to sunny Florida. While Joe pretends to be a millionaire to win over

the band’s sexy singer Sugar, Jerry finds himself pursued by a real

millionaire as things heat up and the mobsters close in. Great fun!

November 6, 13

Frank Galvin is a washed-up alcoholic lawyer,

reduced to ambulance-chasing cases. He is given

one last chance to redeem himself with an open

and shut malpractice case against the Boston

medical establishment. He refuses an out-of-court settlement,

believing it is negligence that has left a young mother in a coma.

Smelling a cover-up, he takes the case and the entire legal system

to court.

Did You Ever Wonder How Art

⊳ Went from This

Come and learn about all the wonderful cultural influences

of African sculpture, Japanese art, and folk art on European,

American, and African American Modern art. See how these

cultural influences changed how artists approached figuration,

perspective, form, and color. European artists created new forms

of art and became the avant-garde modern artists of the art

world. Americans were also inspired to invent totally new forms of

Modern art. See how African American artist, Aaron Douglas, was

inspired by African sculpture to create abstract murals at historically

black colleges. Join art historian, Bridgitte Montgomery, and see her

Power Point presentation on the variety of cultural influences that

inspired Impressionism, abstract art, and modern art in Europe

and America.

The Art of Book Folding

very easy and affordable craft

with minimal supplies.

It is a craft for both men and women. Yolanda will show you

samples of books with only folded pages, and some cut and

folded book pages which are more intricate. You may add a bit of

scrapbooking to finish off the book (this is optional).

Most materials will be provided. Additional materials needed for

HEALTH AND WELLNESS

Could U.S. Healthcare Become the

Best in the World?

Getting to first from last is not an easy task. Confounding our high

cost, dysfunctional healthcare is economic inequality (income, pay

and wealth). We can learn a lot from other high-income countries

who have universal healthcare and are more equalitarian.

Major issues that must be addressed:

• Employer health insurance

(EHI). Origin of high cost.

Unique to the U.S.

• Lack of government

decision making and

decision makers entity for

all healthcare prices.

• Untamed capitalism –

found in the behavior of

insurers and providers.

NEW!

• Use of 3rd party administrators

that don’t take the RISK and can

perpetuate fraud and waste.

• Inability to curb Big Ag and Big

Food from putting unhealthy

food on the table.

• Wage stagnation, a high

poverty and obesity rate,

Rich US is low on the

happiness scale.

We need leaders (elections coming up!) who understand why

So, arm yourself with the facts, the math and realize we do have

the resources to build a bona fide healthcare system to move from

last (at least closer) to first in Health and Wellness and equality.

Caregivers: the Heart and

Lifeline of the Family

NEW!

Caregiving is a labor of love and sometimes the labor load is heavy.

Besides your own immediate family, you may find yourself caring

for a parent or relative who can no longer live alone. This workshop

will help caregivers deal with two of the major obstacles in

giving care: doctor appointments and medications.

Presenter Angela McGowan is a Patient Advocate and Caregiver

Strategist, as well as the author of the new book, How to Get Out

of The Hospital ALIVE! She invites you to engage your feelings and

fears about suddenly being a caregiver, and obtain tips and ways

to navigate through healthcare’s sea of red tape. Learn to create

strategies for giving excellent care to others, as you care for

yourself as well.

Aging Gracefully and Gratefully

Aging is inevitable. As we study and examine what the experts

have to say about aging, we learn from each other by sharing our

civilians were “suddenly and deliberately attacked” by Japanese

forces at Pearl Harbor, leaving more than 2400 people killed and

nearly 1200 people

wounded.

The consequences

of that action

continue to

reverberate in

our nation today.

Through historic

and recently

declassified

information,

you will explore

what was actually happening in Washington, Tokyo, and Oahu, in

the months, weeks, and days before the attack. What you discover

in this course will shock you and may change your view of history.

Cruise to the North Pole &

Chasing a Total Solar Eclipse

In the summer of 2008 a group of polar adventurers and eclipse

chasers boarded Russia’s largest and newest nuclear-powered

icebreaker Fifty Years of Victory. This unique cruise started in

Murmansk, broke ice in the Arctic Ocean, stopped at the North

Pole for festive celebrations, then went on to the remote Franz

Josef archipelago for various shore landings. Numerous species of

arctic birds and polar bears were seen along the way. Lastly, the

ship dashed to the distant coastline of Novaya Zemlaya where a

total solar eclipse was witnessed.

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

Antarctic including the South Pole. He will take you on a

photographic and oral journey across the Arctic Ocean where he

encountered huge icebergs and miles of pack ice enroute to the

North Pole. After celebrating at “the top of the world,” the ship

made landings on remote islands in Franz Josef Land by helicopter

where abandoned explorer camps and research stations were

visited. Numerous polar bears, walruses and various species of

arctic birds were also sighted.

Please join us and find out how icebreakers are reaching the

North Pole and other remote destinations in Russia’s high Arctic

regions. This is an OLLI Special Event presentation you will

How to Build a Dividend Portfolio

NEW!

Safe, fixed, and conservative investments have yielded low

rates for the past 30 plus years causing investors to search high

and low for income. Fear of stock market volatility have made

dividend paying portfolios an attractive strategy. What is a dividend

portfolio? This workshop will answer this question, present the

pros/cons of owning dividend paying investments, and show you

how to build one from scratch. We’ll also discuss tax efficient

methods of managing income distributions such as asset location,

dividend reinvestment plans, and tax-free accounts. Attendees

should have a better idea of the suitability of adding these incomeproducing

assets to their portfolios.

Blanche on the Lam by Barbara Neely

Blanche White is a feisty, middle-aged African-American

housekeeper working for the genteel rich in North Carolina.

When an employer stiffs her, and her checks bounce, she goes on

the lam, hiding out as a maid for a wealthy family at their summer

home. Her plan is interrupted when she becomes the prime suspect

in a murder investigation. Her sharp wit, and her old-girl network

of domestic workers help her discover the truth.

The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration

in the Age of Color Blindness by Michelle Alexander

The author is a civil rights litigator and legal scholar. The book

discusses race-related issues specific to African-American

males, and mass incarceration in the U.S., but noted that the

discrimination is prevalent among other minorities and socioeconomically

disadvantaged populations. The central premise is

that “mass incarceration is, metaphorically, the New Jim Crow.

I Feel Bad About My Neck by Nora Ephron

The woman who brought us When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless

in Seattle, and You’ve Got Mail, discusses everything—from

how much she hates her purse to how much time she spends

attempting to stop the clock: the hair dye, the treadmill, the lotions

and creams that promise to slow the aging process but never does.

It’s a hilarious look at women who are dealing with the tribulations

of maintenance, menopause, empty nests, and life itself.

Factfulness by Hans Rosling, Ola Rosling, Anna Rosling Ronnlund

When asked simple questions about global trends we systematically

strategy of only carrying opinions for which you have

strong, supporting facts. They reveal ten instincts that distort our

perspective, including our tendency to divide the world into “us

and them,” and how we consume media.

Los Angeles and Long Beach Port Complex, as well as Port

Hueneme, the Chevron Refinery Offshore Moorings in El Segundo,

and San Diego. More than 4,500 large vessels arrive in LA/LB each

year. The Vessel Traffic Service performs a function like Air Traffic

Control, but for ships. The primary mission of the vessel traffic

service is to prevent groundings and collisions. Together, the

Maritime Information Service (MIS) and Vessel Traffic Service (VTS)

ensure the safe, secure, efficient, reliable, and environmentally

sound movement of vessels throughout Southern California.

We will receive a briefing on the MIS and VTS and tour the

facilities. As a bonus, we will tour the 100-year old, WW-1 Gun

Emplacement that the Marine Exchange is built on top of.

There is a fascinating series of underground facilities, hallways,

and rooms that we will tour.

All are recommended to wear enclosed flat shoes and pants.

Our Communities and Personal Safety

Our world has changed and our personal safety and

the safety of those we love is important.

It is important to practice Situational Awareness. Do you include

safety in your daily plans? Police response time on average is 7 to

11 minutes. We see and hear about tragedies in the news that

are happening in our neighborhoods; home invasions, street and

parking lot robberies, and much worse, kidnappings and loss of

life. Criminals hide in plain sight.

It is important to talk to your family and friends about safety.

We all want our loved ones to be safe too. The tragedies and

victims we see on the news didn’t think it would happen

to them – but it did.

NEW!

Linda Benecke, the Safety Advocate and representative for Damsel

in Defense will be giving a presentation on safety with numerous

suggestions on how to protect ourselves, as well as introducing

Damsel in Defense safety tools. Damsel’s mission is to Empower,

Educate and Equip. Better to have a safety tool and not need it for

that ‘Just in Case’ moment. We have a right to protect ourselves

Europe: A History, by Norman Davies

(January 1998)

(EUR) Europe: A History

Here is a masterpiece of historical narrative that stretches from

the Ice Age to the Atomic Age, as it tells the story of Europe, East

and West. Norman Davies captures it all--the rise and fall of Rome,

the sweeping invasions of Alaric and Atilla, the Norman Conquests,

the Papal struggles for power, the Renaissance and the Reformation,

the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars, Europe’s rise

to become the powerhouse of the world, and its eclipse in our

own century, following two devastating World Wars. This is the

first major history of Europe to give equal weight to both East and

West, and it shines light on fascinating minority communities, from

heretics and lepers to Gypsies, Jews, and Muslims. It also takes an

innovative approach, combining traditional narrative with unique

features that help bring history alive: 299 time capsules scattered

through the narrative capture telling aspects of an era; 12 snapshots

offer a panoramic look at all of Europe at a particular moment in

history; full coverage of Eastern Europe—100 maps and diagrams,

72 black-and-white plates. All told, Davies’s Europe represents

one of the most important and illuminating histories to be published

in recent years.

The Once and Future Worker:

A Vision for the Renewal of Work

in America, by Oren Cass

(November 2018)

(FOW) Future of Work

The American worker is in crisis. Wages have stagnated for more

than a generation. Automation is eliminating careers and jobs.

Companies are hiring part-time workers instead of full-time or using

Uber’s concept of “independent contractors” thereby eliminating

many company-supplied benefits. All too many workers are unprepared

for the changing conditions while at the same time many job

openings cannot be filled. Reliance on welfare programs has surged

severely stressing government budgets. Life expectancy is falling as

substance abuse and obesity rates climb. These woes are the direct

consequence of a decades-long economic consensus that prioritized

increasing consumption regardless of the costs to American workers,

their families, and their communities. Our systems of education

and training, business and labor law, tax and welfare were created

under very different conditions from those of today and are all in

need of rethinking. Our common reading selection provides stimulation

and shift of perspective as aids to such rethinking.

(HDD) How Democracies Die

Donald Trump’s presidency has raised a question that many of us

never thought we’d be asking: Is our democracy in danger? Harvard

professors Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt have spent more than

twenty years studying the breakdown of democracies in Europe

and Latin America, and they believe the answer is yes. Democracy

no longer ends with a bang—in a revolution or military coup—but

with a whimper: the slow, steady weakening of critical institutions,

such as the judiciary and the press, and the gradual erosion of longstanding

political norms. The good news is that there are several

exit ramps on the road to authoritarianism. The bad news is that we

have already passed the first one. Drawing on decades of research

and a wide range of historical and global examples, from 1930s

Europe to contemporary Hungary, Turkey, and Venezuela, to the

American South during Jim Crow, Levitsky and Ziblatt show how

democracies die—and how ours can be saved.

Common Reading:

How Democracies Die,

(HIH) How The Internet Happened

The story of the Internet is often focused on hackers and software

engineers. Who wrote the code? Who did it first? And who did it

best? There is plenty of this in Brian McCullough’s book, but there

is also the broader view showing how a handful of powerful

companies came to dominate the technology. The internet didn’t

happen only because of wizardly coding and cheaper computers.

It also happened because of serendipity, failures, friendships and

feuds; and through it all a flood of cash eased the path to success.

We will look at the interlocking histories of start-ups and how

entrepreneurs and CEOs battled one another on the technological

and financial playing fields. Some of the most interesting moments

occur when we meet the already forgotten players of the early days

that gave rise to the dominating businesses of today. In many ways,

the history of the internet was ugly, but as the smoke clears, we

find that we are left with something truly new, ubiquitous and

even beautiful, like the sleek new iPhone.

Nature’s Mutiny: How the Little Ice

Age of the Long Seventeenth

Century Transformed the West

and Shaped the Present,

by Philipp Blom (February 2019)

(ICE) How The Little Ice Age Changed History

Starting in the fourteenth century and lasting several hundred

years, cooling temperatures disrupted the world’s economic and

social structures—contributing to the rise of the modern world.

This epoch is known as the Little Ice Age, during which average

earth surface temperatures dropped by as much as two degrees

Celsius, or 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit. (This is the same amount of

temperature change as the goal to limit global warming now.)

These cooling temperatures and accompanying major storms

reduced crop yields which disrupted the feudal and guild economic

and social structures of the time, giving rise to the modern world.

People migrated, cities grew, food was transported long distances,

banking emerged and money became more important. These social

and economic changes were coincident to the beginnings of modern

science, the Enlightenment, and the innovation of capitalism.

(LIB) Libraries

The S/DG will examine the role of libraries in society and in our

Central Library where we trace the early history of this local library

and its colorful head librarians; we read about the issues that

face libraries today (homeless users) as well as the puzzling selfcontradictory

man who was accused of but probably did not start

the library fire. We’ll study the changes libraries face as interest in

books is being replaced by digital media, the rise of internet use in

libraries, the history of libraries in America, the history of famous

libraries in ancient and medieval history, and the role of the

Library of Congress.

(MID) View From The Middle

The “Heartland of America” has often been used to describe that

large portion of the country between the Appalachian and

Rocky Mountains and north of the Mason-Dixon Line. It is highly

agricultural and industrial and many who live along the East and

West Coasts consider it “fly over country,” “a flat undifferentiated

mass of square tracts and crop circles,” “a land of farmers of

northern European descent … a psychic fall-out shelter in which to

seek refuge from a changing and dangerous world.” The region is

much more complex than that. This S/DG will explore this region

and the viewpoints of its residents and voters with aid of our

The Disordered Mind—What

Unusual Brains Tell Us About

Ourselves, by Eric R. Kandel

(2000 Nobel Prize in Medicine

for Physiology) (August 2018)

(MND) The Disordered Mind

Our culture’s conception of the varieties of mental illness was

formed over a century ago with delineation of the major categories

physicians now use to diagnose psychiatric diseases. Our author,

Kandel, holds that mental illnesses are simply brain disorders,” and

is particularly focused on the importance of genetics. Neurobiology

may indeed be well poised to promote this kind of synthesis. Kandel

illuminates the link between mental illness and artistic creativity, and

tries to reconcile Kraepelin-style biologism with more humanistically

oriented psychotherapy, correctly assailing the false dichotomy

between these two approaches. There are many indications that

the brain’s interactions with the rest of the body, both during

development and later in life, can have a major impact on health.

There is a need to consider our brains in the social, environmental

and bodily contexts in which they operate — contexts that help

make us who we are, in both sickness and health. This S/DG will

explore modern models of mental disorders.

Reconstruction: A Concise History,

by Allen C. Guelzo (May 2018)

(REC) Reconstruction—The Worst Phase

of American History

At the end of the Civil War, the United States began the effort of

putting the country back together again. This meant restoring

commerce, governmental processes, and dealing with the multitude

of freed, black slaves. This whole process was very badly handled

and resulted in even greater division in the country than there

had been before the war. For example, the border states of West

Virginia (broken off from Virginia during the war), Tennessee,

Kentucky, and Missouri shifted their sympathies from the North,

to the South. These Appalachian people had largely hated the

wealthy Southern land and slave holders, but found the selfrighteous

Northern “reformers” even more offensive. This S/DG

will review the history of this period and what its impacts are on

us today. We will consider how we might correct the various social

and political structures that resulted from Reconstruction.

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—showing 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.

of Shakespeare’s works — sources upon which the Bard builds rich

characters and enhances the plots, how to play each character

“in character,” themes, symbols, images, motifs, and commentary

on issues of the day. Members will leave this class with a fuller

understanding of the masterful story construction, realistic

characters with depth and humanity, and the rich, evocative

language which have earned William Shakespeare the title of

The Most Dangerous Branch takes us inside the secret world of the

Newsweek, shows how justices subvert the role of the other government

branches—and how we’ve come to accept it at our peril.

Based on exclusive interviews with the justices and dozens of their

law clerks, Kaplan provides fresh details about life behind what goes

aggrandizement of power over the decades—from Roe v. Wade to

Bush v. Gore to Citizens United, to rulings during the 2017-18 term.

OLLI WAITLIST PROCEDURES

Enrich Your Life,

Enrich OLLI

at CSUDH

OLLI Waitlist Procedures

NEW!

At the request of OLLI Members and to maximize opportunities for

all OLLI Members to enroll in courses and events, OLLI@CSUDH has

implemented a Waitlist Procedure.

1. What are waitlists?

If a course enrollment reaches capacity, members can place

themselves on a waitlist and will be notified if a spot in the class

becomes available. When you register by phone or in-person

you will immediately know what courses are full and what

course are available.

2. How do I waitlist for a course / event?

Follow your current enrollment procedure (1st page of catalog’s

gold pages). If the course or event is full, ask to be placed on

the waitlist. Registration will place the member in the next

chronological waitlist space.

3. How will I know if I am can get into the class?

After the first day of class or when space becomes available

(whichever comes first), you will be notified through email by

an OLLI Staff member. OLLI Staff will contact the members in

chronological waitlist order advising them of space available.

Members have until the next class to enroll.

4. Is there a charge to be placed on a waitlist?

No. You will not be charged any fees for courses or events for

which you are waitlisted. You are only charged when you are

fully enrolled.

5. How can I do my part?

Make space for others. If you are unable to attend a course,

please cancel through OLLI Registration at (310) 243-3741 or

contact the OLLI Office through email at olli@csudh.edu

So, registering early—even for courses or events that are already

full—is the best way to get into the courses you really want.

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

removed from the class and/or activities and denied the privilege

of future participation at the discretion of the OLLI Director

and CEIE Leadership.

OLLI More.

Live More.
