Adulthood II: A Whole New Stage In The Life Cycle with Mary Catherine Bateson, Ph.D.

People are living longer, but this new longevity is not equivalent to an extension of old age or years added on at the end of life. Children have left home and many are facing retirement, but are not ready to spend this time on the golf course, or playing endless hands of bridge. There is the possibility of opening up to a second and different kind of adulthood. This stage is endowed with wisdom, health, and energy. As trustees for the future, what are the new roles elders will take on? Can they become the needed visionaries in our society? What can elders do with this unique combination of energy and knowledge? Mary Catherine Bateson challenges us by saying, “We need to reengage, make our voices heard, clear off some of the stuff we’ve accumulated over the years, and focus on what we care about the most. We are opening up to a second and different kind of adulthood.” (hosted by Justine Willis Toms)

Mysterious Sightings In The Sky with Jacques Vallee, Ph.D.

During the past century, individuals, newspapers, and military agencies have recorded thousands of UFO incidents, giving rise to much speculation about flying saucers, visitors from other planets, and alien abductions. But the extraterrestrial phenomenon did not begin in the present era. The first case reported turns out to be in the 1500s B.C. in Egypt. Although Dr. Jacques Vallee does not come to conclusions about UFOs, what his research shows is that reports of such phenomenon have been occurring since antiquity. He says, “What Chris and I contribute is a series of data points that have been missing from the study of the phenomena. How far back does it go? What are the patterns? And, if the phenomenon has been with us since antiquity, then, what does it say about these things being from another plane? I think it may be more complex than that.” Join us for this exploration of the mystery of UFOs. (hosted by Michael Toms)

He earned a Masters Degree in Astrophysics while living in France and holds a Ph.D. in computer science from Northwestern University. His life experience was the model portrayed by François Truffaut in the Steven Spielberg award winning film, Close Encounters of the Third Kind. 

He’s the author of numerous books, including:

Topics explored in this dialogue include:

  • Why hypnotizing people is the wrong method to explore the problem of their encounters with strange and unexplained phenomenon
  • How the Air Force disgraced itself by the Condon Report which wanted to get rid of the UFO problem
  • How the change in public opinion is making it possible for people of stature to do report their UFO experiences
  • Why ancient cultures have names for this phenomenon such as devil, elves, fairies, goblins, leprechauns, demons, and angels
  • How having knowledge of UFOs from older cases helps us to look at new cases in a more informed way
  • Why we should not jump to simplistic conclusions about unexplained aerial phenomena

Cassandra Mundt, Community Development Coordinator for The National Toy and Miniature Museum discusses the re-opening of the museum on Saturday August 1, 2015.

The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures educates, inspires, and delights adults and children through the museum’s collection and preservation of toys and miniatures.
HISTORY
The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures opened in 1982 as the Toy and Miniature Museum of Kansas City featuring the collections of Mary Harris Francis and Barbara Marshall. Operating in a building on the corner of 52nd and Oak on the University of Missouri – Kansas City campus, the 7,000-square-foot museum had two full-time staff members.
Over the next thirty years with expansions in 1985 and 2004, the museum grew to 33,000 square feet. During that same period, the collection increased to over 72,000 objects. In 2012, the museum embarked on its first public capital campaign to support building and exhibit improvements.
On August 1, 2015, the museum will reopen as The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures with the world’s largest fine-scale miniature collection and one of the nation’s largest antique toy collections on public display.
