Lecture: Ladies & Gentlemen, The Beatles…

With these five words, Ed Sullivan introduced the Fab Four to America. Or did he? From the early 1960s to their break-up in 1970, the “boys from Liverpool” wrote some of the most memorable classics in modern musical history. In this lecture (where you are encouraged – but not required – to sing or clap along), we will explore their roots, the stories behind some of those radio-friendly hits and the legacy of this fascinating quartet beyond the decade-long lifespan of the group. LIU Hutton House, 720 Northern Blvd., Brookville. www.liu.edu/huttonhouse, $25, 10 a.m.-noon

Lecture: The Decapitation of the Polish Government—Katyn Revisited?

In the summer of 2010, House Resolution 1489 was introduced calling for an independent international investigation of the April 10, plane crash in Russia that killed Poland’s president Lech Kaczynski and 95 other individuals. President Kaczynski and his wife, senior Polish military officers, Poland’s deputy foreign minister, 12 members of the Polish Parliament, senior members of the Polish clergy, were all on their way to honor the 22,000 Polish officers killed at Katyn by the Soviet Secret Police in 1940, when the plane crashed just six miles from Katyn. Hear from someone impacted by the catastrophe and close to the investigation. What really happened on April 10, 2010? Why did the administration have no interest in an investigation? How does the catastrophe impact the Republic of Poland, the Russian Federation, and the United States? This lecture will be delivered by Dr. Harvey Kushner, stellar LIU Post faculty member, who serves as Chair of Criminal Justice and is a world-renowned expert on terrorism. LIU Hutton House, 720 Northern Blvd., Brookville. www.liu.edu/huttonhouse, 10 a.m.-noon.

News

Eight students from Jericho High School, the largest number of students from any school on Long Island this year, are among the 300 semifinalists picked from 1,800 entrants nationally and overseas in the annual Intel Science Talent Search.

Brookville’s Green Vale School students were featured in the September/October 2013 issue of Sport Rocketry, the official journal of the National Association of Rocketry.

The seventh-grade students competed nationally at the Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC) last May in Virginia and were the youngest rocket scientists competing. They were also the only team from Long Island that qualified to enter the competition and one of only two teams from New York State.
