    Mindful Movement: Yoga for the Office

    10:00am to 11:00am

    Location: 

    Online

    As every office worker knows, sitting for long periods can result in stiffness and discomfort. The gentle stretches and postures taught in this program are designed to increase flexibility at the joints – thereby improving one's range of motion – and also aid in relaxing the hips and lower portions of the body to increase one's ability to sit with ease. Because this practice blends movement in the body with the breath, it is an ideal extension of mindfulness practice.

    No previous knowledge of yoga is necessary. This class does not require special clothing or equipment.

    7:30pm to 9:00pm

    Location: 

    Online

    American instincts oscillate between the allure of the city and that of life free of city stress; between the temptations of the metropolis, and bucolic retreat from those very centers of civic life. Such oscillations, occurring across American history, have on the one hand enabled the building of Manhattan, the ‘Capital of Capitalism’ (and culture, too) and the invention of the ‘garden suburb’ where family grace was to dwell, prior to metastasizing into sprawl. Drawing on research from his 2019 book, City on a Hill, Krieger's lecture will track American ideals and shortcomings in these...

    The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the need for healthcare providers to offer digital services to patients under lockdown orders and observing physical distancing measures. Likewise, technology is critical to contact tracing, modeled on efforts taken in response to Ebola and Lassa fever and lauded as one of the essential steps in reopening economies prior to the deployment of a widely available vaccine. Contact tracing apps that rely on wi-fi connections or cell phone data to determine an individual’s whereabouts have raised privacy concerns, as has the proliferation of telemedicine....
