Leadercast 2016

Friday, May 6th 2016 - 7:00 am - 5:00 pm
at Mount Marty College Roncalli Center Dining Room
1108 W 8th St.

At Leadercast Live 2016, we’ll explore what it means to be a
visionary leader by looking at three unique perspectives that an “Architect of Tomorrow” must explore. Visionary leaders have the ability to see a preferred future, operate in the present, and utilize the resources around them to architect a clear path to a new destination. They work tirelessly to empower those around them to bring a vision to life.
Architects of Tomorrow imagine a future that is rich and full of hope. A future where problems are solved, questions are answered, confusion gives way to clarity.

A History Of Hats To Be Presented At Avera Majestic Bluffs

Friday, May 6th 2016 - 2:00 pm
at Avera Majestic Bluffs
2111 W 11th St

If you’ve ever wondered about the history of hats, you’ll want to attend “Hats Off To You.”

Phyllis Schrag, a retired teacher and scholar from Ames, Iowa, will deliver the presentation at 2 p.m. Friday, May 6, at the Avera Majestic Bluffs Gathering Place.

The program details changes in men’s and women’s hats through the centuries. Photo examples of hats from renaissance days to modern times show changes in style and the psychological implications of those changes.

For example, war-time hats were far different from hats worn during the 1960s.

The presentation is free and open to the public.

This program at Avera Majestic Bluffs was made possible by the South Dakota Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Eta Aquarid meteor shower

Friday, May 6th 2016 - 8:30 pm
at Dickinson County Nature Center
2279 170th St

Halley’s Comet won’t return to the Earth’s vicinity until 2061, but people will be able to see its remnants this week.

The Eta Aquarid meteor shower occurs when Earth passes through the orbital path of the comet.

Learn more about the Eta Aquarids and other celestial events during the next Star Trekking program 8:30 p.m. Friday, May 6, at the Dickinson County Nature Center.

The Eta Aquarids meteor shower will reach its height at about 3 a.m. until dawn on May 6, and the time of the year’s third and final new supermoon means a dark sky that night. These meteors will appear to radiate from the Aquarius constellation, with its Y-shaped water jar pattern.

 

At the end of the program, people will go outside to try to see some of the meteors in the Eta Aquarids shower, if it is good weather. Otherwise, Vigdal will use an indoor planetarium program so people can see what the night would have looked like with a clear sky.
