Geographer David Lowenthal is professor emeritus of the Department of Geography, University College London, and a renowned and prolific writer on nostalgia, heritage, and the spatial outcomes of concepts of the past and future. In several books on the politics of preservation, the meaning and value of landscape, society in the West Indies, and conceptions of nature, he has focused on the landscape and built environment as palimpsests of cultural attitudes to history. Lowenthal, who taught landscape history and studied urban environmental perception at Harvard GSD between 1966 and 1969, is a medalist of the Royal Geographical Society, Scottish Royal Geographical Society, and American Geographical Society; a fellow of the British Academy; and the recipient of many prestigious awards and prizes. A successor to The Past is a Foreign Country (1985), widely regarded as a classic, is due in print early next year (The Past is a Foreign Country—Revisited, Cambridge, 2015). Susan Nigra Snyder and George Thomas, lecturers in architecture, and Natalia Escobar, PhD student, will host the event on behalf of the GSD’s Critical Conservation program.

Business Innovation, Improve Your Business with Strategic Innovation - Tony Robbins Podcast This Tony Robbins Podcast teaches strategic innovation so your business can improve and create value that puts you ahead of the competition. Do you own or manage your own business? Are you full of ideas for new products or services but unsure if you can succeed in your industry? The key to carving out a niche for yourself is not only creating something new and exciting for your customers, but in developing something that adds value to the lives of your consumers in a way that hasn’t been done before. In this nearly hour-long podcast, Tony Robbins discusses how you can become a leader in your field via business innovation. Some people spend more time working on developing their business than they do with their loved ones. With this in mind, shouldn’t your work life be worth it? Tony Robbins believes that by transforming your business, you can transform your life. Within the strategic innovation podcast, Tony discusses real-life examples of major corporations, such as Apple, Amazon and more, that identified barriers in their way and found creative ways around them. By identifying their setbacks, these major brands were able to not only find creative solutions to their problems, but establish themselves as leaders in their industries. With the knowledge provided in this podcast, you, too, can work toward carving out a profitable niche for yourself. When looking to create a business innovation, it’s essential to find unique ways to provide more value than anyone else can. Let’s make something clear though — strategic innovation is different than never-ending improvement. You want to reshape the landscape of your business and revitalize your industry by providing customers with something new. Consumers expect, and appreciate, a constant evolution of improvement, not just different iterations of the same thing over and over. Strategic innovation gives you the power to create the company you’ve always dreamed of. Innovation is something many business owners think about, but few execute successfully. Tony Robbins says that the key to a successful business strategy is to utilize innovation and marketing techniques, because you need to be able to bring something to the table that gives you a competitive advantage. For more information on how to change the way your business strategy functions for the better, listen to the podcast in its entirety.

Turn on captions for English subtitles. Alan Wilson is a British historian specialising in the origins and ancient history of the British and the history of the ancient British kings including two real King Arthurs. Arthurian research: In 1976, after a chance meeting with historical researcher, Anthony Thomas 'Baram' Blackett, at the public library in Newcastle upon Tyne, the two men decided to put up many thousands of pounds of their own money to fund full-time research into the origins of King Arthur. The Arthurian stories, so popular today, came out of South-Eastern Wales into France, via the Normans, in the 12th century and this encouraged them to start their search in the same place. The search soon moved beyond Wales to include the English Midlands which had been dominated by the old Welsh Kingdoms for centuries. To date, Wilson and Blackett have published seven books that provide information based upon Old Welsh records that date to the 12th Century. They believe that these provide a final solution to the King Arthur story and have clearly identified the true sites of the battles of Badon (Mynydd Baedan) and Camlann. In 1983, Wilson and Blackett discovered what they believe to be King Arthur's memorial stone at the small ruined church of St Peter-super-Montem on Mynydd-y-Gaer in Mid-Glamorgan, which they subsequently purchased. The stone was offered to the National Museum of Wales (Amguedda Werin Cymru) for analysis, but the offer was not taken up. Subsequently it went on public display in various venues for some time. Following this, they employed the services of two archaeologists, (Professor Eric Talbot and Alan Wishart) in 1990, to lead a dig at the same place. During the excavations, which were authorised by the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales, several artefacts were discovered including an ancient axe, a knife and a small cross weighing two and a half pounds, that reads "Pro Anima Artorius" ("For The Soul Of Arthur"). The cross was subsequently tested by an independent metallurgical house, Bodycote PLC, and found to be made of electrum, and so certified. The cross was offered up to the National Museum of Wales for public testing, but this also was declined.Wilson and Blackett had already identified the church as an ancient historical site possibly originally dating from the first century A.D. Other major Welsh kings are buried locally. More recently, Wilson and Blackett began a search for what was known as 'The Greatest Work of the Cymru' - Cyfrangon. This is allegedly a massive, hollow, man-made hill concealed somewhere in Wales (similar to Silbury Hill). Treasure hunters in Wales have long sought this fabled hill in which, it is believed, lie several objects of tremendous historical and archaeological value, many of which may be covered in gold or copper. The use of deep ground probing metal detection and analysis equipment revealed non ferrous metal artefacts some fifteen feet below the surface of the hill at Twyn y Glog, near Ynysybwl in mid Glamorgan. Further investigation by collaborators proved that the original height of the hill lies some 30 or more metres below the Ordnance Survey height, and that the hill is therefore an artificial construct. (Berkly, G., 2007). No further tests have been made to date (10 September 2007). Lecture tours: Alan Wilson and his colleague lectured extensively in the United Kingdom, including Manchester and Jesus College at the University of Oxford, and Alan Wilson gave the prestigious Bemis Lecture in Boston in 1993. Research into claims that the Welsh settled in mid-western America in antiquity led to Wilson and his colleague, Baram Blackett, accepting invitations from American supporters to visit US sites of historical significance in 1994. The visit led to several television appearances and the deciphering of alphabetic inscriptions claimed to be in the old 'Coelbren' alphabet. Wilson also concluded that the many snake mounds in the American Mid-west were of ancient Khumric-British construction. Whilst in America, the two men were also commissioned to produce a detailed genealogy for the Bush family (friends and supporters of President George H. W. Bush). Published works: Arthur, King of Glamorgan and Gwent (with Baram Blackett, MT Byrd Partnership, 1980) Arthur and Charter of the Kings (with Baram Blackett, MT Byrd Partnership, 1981) Arthur The War King (with Baram Blackett, MT Byrd Partnership, 1982-3) Artorius Rex Discovered (with Baram Blackett, MT Byrd Partnership, 1986) The Holy Kingdom (with Adrian Gilbert and Baram Blackett, Bantam, 1998) King Arthur Conspiracy (with Grant Berkley and Baram Blackett, Trafford, 2005) Moses in the Hieroglyphs (with Grant Berkley and Baram Blackett, Trafford, 2006) The Discovery of the Ark of the Covenant (with Grant Berkley and Baram Blackett, Trafford, 2007)

The “Trauma: A Public Health Crisis in Western New York” conference, sponsored by the Community Health Foundation of Western and Central New York, took place on March 12 and 13, 2010. This conference informed community members and stakeholders about trauma and trauma-informed care. Participants learned to recognize the role of trauma in the lives of children, the effects of adverse childhood experiences on adult health risk behaviors and diseases (delineated in Dr. Robert Anda’s seminal “ACEs” study), and learned how to apply the tenets of the Sanctuary Model to provide trauma-informed treatment and care. Furthermore, this conference enabled participants to collaborate with one another to form a network of community leaders and activists.

Amidst the bluster of his critique of the discipline, Vine Deloria Jr. systematically developed a philosophical analysis that married reverse anthropology with ontography with critical ecology, well before these approaches had entered mainstream anthropological conversations. His texts—notably "God is Red" and "Metaphysics of Modern Existence"—frequently operated on two levels. First, Deloria sought to outline the ontological commitments to place within Native American traditions. In doing so, he leveled the analytical field: Chief Luther Standing Bear was accorded a symmetrical intellectual position to Alfred North Whitehead, for instance, and European communities were evaluated for the degree to which they had evolved toward Native America (rather than the other way around). Second, Deloria sought to outline the parallel commitments to history within European and Euro-American traditions in a way that made this preoccupation seem foreign and strange. Standing in the position of a native looking back, he targeted the alterity of those who claim to have transcended their indigeneity—who claimed a temporal position rather than a spatial position—as part of an overtly critical project designed to provincialize “the West.” This session has been convened to engage Deloria both as a formative voice in the struggle for what Viveiros de Castro refers to as ontological self-determination, and as a critic of the metaphysical moorings of a Western tradition that includes the anthropological project. Insofar as Deloria's intervention hinges on the relative priorities of history and place, the panel situates this engagement within existing archaeological debates (archaeology being deeply implicated in the perpetuation of a Western chronological imaginary that transforms sites into eras and places into histories). But the goal is to reposition Deloria's philosophy within anthropology more broadly. As the most influential Native American intellectual of the twentieth century, who lived much of his life in the Denver area, Deloria's work continues to dislodge and defamiliarize anthropological thought in transformational ways.

In order to be able to perform well in today's competitive global marketplace it becomes imperative for nations to highlight their attractive dimensions. Since the collapse of the former USSR and the end of the 'Cold War', many new nations were formed and reformed thus bringing to light the relatively new field of 'country brand management'. At its core is the belief that every place has a brand that could and should be managed. Ambassador Ido Aharoni, the founder of Israel's national "Brand Israel" program discusses the challenges countries and cities face in the process of improving their overall positioning. Aharoni discusses the various elements of the process emphasizing the need to form partnerships, conduct deep social research, map the emotional landscape and draft an effective action plan. Ambassador Ido Aharoni is the Consul General of Israel in New York and a 20-year veteran of Israel's Forein Service, whose work on improving Israel's overall positioning in the USA is knownto many in the Jewish world.

As part of the 2016–2017 Fellows’ Presentation Series at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Carol J. Oja ’17 presents “Marian Anderson and the Desegregation of the American Concert Stage.” Hailed as one of the greatest singers of the 20th century, Marian Anderson used her talent and celebrity to advance civil rights. Her 1939 concert at the Lincoln Memorial defied a ban excluding African American performers from Constitution Hall in Washington, DC, and her 1955 debut at the Metropolitan Opera ended the Met’s exclusion of African American singers in starring roles. In this lecture—which includes audio and video of Anderson in performance—Oja repositions those landmarks as part of the little-discussed history of institutional segregation in the classical music business.

“Anachronometrics” is a neologism denoting an act of temporal displacement in which one seizes on the future or past as a point of comparison, to emphasize differences. This series of talks and conversations will examine the relationships that contemporary architects and commentators on architecture have established between history and practice. Presentations by GSD faculty and guests will focus on selected objects of historical significance, exploring the modes of interpretation or repetition, states of anxiety, and other attitudes evoked by the objects. Students and recent graduates will respond to these talks and open a general discussion. This event, whose program is curated by public programs manager Shantel Blakely and research associate Collin Gardner, coincides with the concurrent exhibition Happening Now: Historiography in the Making, which features a selection of items from the archive, on display in Loeb Library. “Anachronometrics” is the final episode of the Symposium on Architecture “All that is Solid . . . ,” organized by Iñaki Ábalos, professor in residence of architecture, which has explored issues that architects face in the process of designing buildings. Previous panel discussions in the series, with speakers selected by department faculty, were “Design Techniques” (2013–14), “Organization or Design” (2015), and “Interior Matters” (2016).

In between his presidential terms he was also the Prime Minister of Russia under his close associate Dmitry Medvedev. Putin was born in Leningrad during the Soviet Union. He studied law at Leningrad State University, graduating in 1975. Putin was a KGB foreign intelligence officer for 16 years, rising to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel before resigning in 1991 to enter politics in Saint Petersburg. He moved to Moscow in 1996 and joined President Boris Yeltsin's administration, rising quickly through the ranks and becoming Acting President on 31 December 1999, when Yeltsin resigned. During his first presidency, the Russian economy grew for eight straight years, and GDP measured in purchasing power increased by 72%. The growth was a result of the 2000s commodities boom, recovery from the post-Communist depression, financial crises, prudent economic and fiscal policies. In September 2011, Putin announced he would seek a third term as president. He won the March 2012 presidential election with 64% of the vote. Falling oil prices coupled with international sanctions imposed at the beginning of 2014 after Russia's annexation of Crimea and military intervention in Eastern Ukraine led to GDP shrinking by 3.7% in 2015, though the Russian economy rebounded in 2016 with 0.3% GDP growth and is officially out of the recession.

The term may also include Americans of mixed race ancestry who self-identify with just one group culturally and socially (cf. the one-drop rule). In the 2010 US census, approximately 9 million individuals or 2.9% of the population, self-identified as multiracial. There is evidence that an accounting by genetic ancestry would produce a higher number. Historical reasons, including slavery creating a racial caste and the European-American suppression of Native Americans, often led people to identify or be classified by only one ethnicity, generally that of the culture in which they were raised. Prior to the mid-20th century, many people hid their multiracial heritage because of racial discrimination against minorities. While many Americans may be biologically multiracial, they often do not know it or do not identify so culturally, any more than they maintain all the differing traditions of a variety of national ancestries.After a lengthy period of formal racial segregation in the former Confederacy following the Reconstruction Era and bans on interracial marriage in various parts of the country, more people are openly forming interracial unions. In addition, social conditions have changed and many multiracial people do not believe it is socially advantageous to try to "pass" as white. Diverse immigration has brought more mixed race people into the United States, such as a significant population of Hispanics identifying as mestizos. Since the 1980s, the United States has had a growing multiracial identity movement (cf. Loving Day). Because more Americans have insisted on being allowed to acknowledge their mixed racial origins, the 2000 census for the first time allowed residents to check more than one ethno-racial identity and thereby identify as multiracial. In 2008, Barack Obama was elected as the first biracial President of the United States; he acknowledges both sides of his family and identifies as African-American.Today, multiracial individuals are found in every corner of the country. Multiracial groups in the United States include many African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Métis Americans, Louisiana Creoles, Hapas, Melungeons, Lumbees, Houmas and several other communities found primarily in the Eastern US. Many Native Americans are multiracial in ancestry while identifying fully as members of federally recognized tribes.

Organized by POLIS, a politological society of students at Charles University, Faculty of Philosophy in cooperation with the Embassy of the State of Palestine. Yonathan Mizrachi: UNESCO vs. Israeli Policy in Jerusalem Ronnie Barkan: Microcosm of Apartheid Facilitator: Jonathan Stein Jerusalem is one of the main keys to peace in the Middle East, but just everyday reality in one half of this ancient city is far from peaceful. Israel does not like to be called an occupying power, but that is the term international law has for Israel's control of East Jerusalem and the rest of the Palestinian territories. Speakers: 1. Yonathan Mizrachi, is an archeologist and executive director of Emek Shaveh, an Israeli NGO working to prevent the political use of archaeology in Jerusalem and the West Bank. Emek Shaveh believe that Jerusalem's ancient sites are public assets that belong to members of all communities, faiths and peoples and are deeply concerned by how these sites have become highly politicized and placed in the frontline of the attempt to prevent a political compromise for Jerusalem. 2. Ronnie Barkan, is a math teacher and longtime Jewish Israeli activist, co-founder of Boycott from Within. Boycott from Within members are as they say “Palestinians, Jews, citizens of Israel, who join the Palestinian call for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS)”, a movement that “works to end international support for Israel's oppression of Palestinians and pressure Israel to comply with international law”. The BDS campaign is inspired by the campaign that helped to end apartheid in South Africa. The Boycott from Within supported a Czech initiative protesting the Days of Jerusalem in Prague for its political agenda promoting Jerusalem as “unified”. http://ism-czech.org/2014/06/20/from-israeli-citizens-and-residents-of-jerusalem-say-no-to-the-days-of-jerusalem-in-prague-propaganda-festival/ Jonathan Stein is a journalist and Managing Editor at Project Syndicate Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has just pledged his support for the so-called Greater Jerusalem bill, which would annex a large swath of Palestinian land deep inside the occupied West Bank's Jerusalem district. The Israeli right is discussing annexing the whole of West Bank with nearly half of Israelis supporting ethnic cleansing, showed a Pew Research Centre study. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/almost-half-of-israeli-jews-want-ethnic-cleansing-palestinians-wake-up-call-survey-finds-a6919271.html http://ism-czech.org/tag/days-of-jerusalem/ Israel presents its self as “the only democracy in the Middle East”, but there are many people, including Palestinians and even some Israelis, who fundamentally challenge the notion of Israeli democracy. The human rights discourse concerning the situation in Israel-Palestine, a discourse that demands full equality for all the people of this land, is gaining more and more attention these days. This demand for equality also places in question the very legal system in Israel, which includes dozens of discriminatory laws against the non-Jewish citizens of the state. This discrimination is especially visible in East Jerusalem, which Ronnie Barkan argues is currently undergoing a process of “Hebronization”, in other words a process of Judaization - confining the native Palestinian neighborhoods in strictly controlled ghettos while harming every aspect of life of the residents there, for the sake of maintaining control and privilege by the Jewish settlers of that area. These means shall be the focus of Barkan’s talk.

The United Church of Christ is a historical continuation of the General Council of Congregational Christian churches founded under the influence of New England Pilgrims and Puritans. Moreover, it also subsumed the third largest Reformed group in the country, the German Reformed. The Evangelical and Reformed Church and the General Council of the Congregational Christian Churches united in 1957 to form the UCC. These two denominations, which were themselves the result of earlier unions, had their roots in Congregational, Lutheran, Evangelical, and Reformed denominations. At the end of 2014, the UCC's 5,116 congregations claimed 979,239 members, primarily in the U.S. In 2015, Pew Research estimated that 0.4 percent, or 1 million adult adherents, of the U.S. population self-identify with the United Church of Christ.The UCC maintains full communion with other mainline Protestant denominations. Many of its congregations choose to practice open communion. The denomination places high emphasis on participation in worldwide interfaith and ecumenical efforts. The national settings of the UCC have historically favored liberal views on social issues, such as civil rights, LGBT rights, women's rights, and abortion. However, United Church of Christ congregations are independent in matters of doctrine and ministry and may not necessarily support the national body's theological or moral stances. It is self-described as "an extremely pluralistic and diverse denomination".

At that time, he was one of the most popular U.S. Presidents, but the subsequent exposure of scandals that took place under his administration such as Teapot Dome eroded his popular regard, as did revelations of an affair by Nan Britton, one of his mistresses. In historical rankings of the U.S. Presidents, Harding is often rated among the worst. Harding lived in rural Ohio all his life, except when political service took him elsewhere. As a young man, he bought The Marion Star, building it into a successful newspaper. In 1899, he was elected to the Ohio State Senate and after four years there successfully ran for lieutenant governor. He was defeated for governor in 1910, but was elected to the United States Senate in 1914. When Harding ran for the Republican nomination for president in 1920 he was considered a long shot until after the convention began. Then the leading candidates, such as General Leonard Wood, could not gain the needed majority and the convention deadlocked. Harding's support gradually grew until he was nominated on the 10th ballot. He conducted a front porch campaign, remaining for the most part in Marion and allowing the people to come to him. Running on a theme of a return to normalcy of the pre-WWI period, he won in a landslide over Democrat James M. Cox and Socialist Party candidate Eugene Debs and became the first sitting U.S. Senator to be elected president. Harding appointed a number of well-regarded figures to his cabinet, including Andrew Mellon at the Treasury, Herbert Hoover at Commerce and Charles Evans Hughes at the State Department.
