Screen Shot 2015-08-11 at 3.23.55 PM
Join us Wed., March 2 at 12:30 p.m. for our weekly meeting of the Community Read of Octavia’s Brood.

This week we’ll be discussing the stories: Homing Instinct and Children Who Fly.

Don’t know what Community Read is? Read on:

Each year a new book is selected for our Community Book Read. Together we share our impressions and ideas. Weekly analyses of the text are led by a variety of college volunteers, bringing with them their unique backgrounds, expertise and perspectives. This keeps the discussion fresh, lively and relevant.

This year’s book is Octavia’s Brood: Science Fiction Stories from Social Justice Movements. Octavia’s Brood is a collection of social justice-themed science fiction stories that feature things like time travel, shape shifting, dystopian worlds, re-imaginings of “model minorities” and the possibilities of using visionary fiction to develop new ideas of future worlds. The works are inspired by the writings of Octavia Butler, an award-winning science fiction writer (Kindred, Parable of the Sower, and Lilith’s Brood) who lived in Lake Forest Park before her death in 2006.

Mexico’s Development and Priorities, PUB 9208
Thurs., March 3: 7-8:30 p.m.
western hem
Mexico shares a 2,000-mile border with the U.S. and bilateral relations between the two have a direct impact on the lives and livelihoods of millions of people in both countries. The scope of the relationship is broad and entails extensive commercial, cultural, environmental and educational ties.

The level of cooperation reached on various issues during the last 20 years, in particular, is unprecedented. However, Mexico and the U.S. also have distinct foci or views depending on events or regions. Especially when it comes to relations with other countries in Latin America in particular, and developing countries in general, Mexico often has a different response to issues.

In 2013, Mexico was elected to a three-year tour on the UN Human Rights Council. Mexico is a member of the Australia Group, an informal forum of countries which, through the harmonization of export controls, seeks to ensure that exports do not contribute to the development of chemical or biological weapons.

Join us to discuss this important relationship!

“Live! From the Last Night of My Life,” Campus Theater
Thurs., March 3: 7:30 p.m.
Shoreline Community College Theater Department is proud to present Seattle based Wayne Rawley’s “Live! From the Last Night of My Life.”

Doug Sample is a man who has decided his experiment with life has, for all intents and purposes, failed. He has achieved nothing, accomplished nothing, and has nothing except his graveyard shift at a local gas station and Mini-Mart. He has decided that the best thing for everyone would be if he shot himself in the head, and he is planning to do it right in front of the Mini-Mart’s security cameras at the end of this, his last shift. But before the night is over, Doug will be visited by his past, his present, his possible futures, and some particularly annoying customers as he struggles with some of life’s most challenging questions like “Why should I go on?”, “What does it all mean?”, and perhaps most importantly, “Did I remember to change the cherry syrup in the Slushie Machine?”

Written by Wayne Rawley and directed by Debra Pralle.

PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE:
March 3, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12 – 7:30 PM

FREE CPR and AED Training for Employees, Room 3002
Fri., March 4: 9:30-11:30 a.m.
CPR and AED Training Now Available for SCC Employees!

Would you know what to do in a cardiac or breathing emergency? The right answer could help you save a life. With a mixture of classroom and hands-on learning, Shoreline Fire Department Medics will begin providing a 2 hour course to give you the skills to potentially save a life.

Consider these facts:

• There are 220,000 victims of sudden cardiac arrest per year in the United States; about 10,000 sudden cardiac arrests occur at work
• Waiting for the arrival of emergency medical system personnel results in only 5-7% survival.
• Paramedics can take eight to 12 minutes to arrive, but someone suffering sudden cardiac arrest needs help immediately
• 75% of all out-of-hospital heart attacks happen at home

AEDs in the workplace save lives. An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a medical device designed to analyze the heart rhythm and deliver an electric shock to victims of ventricular fibrillation to restore the heart rhythm to normal. A bystander with access to an AED can greatly improve the chance of survival. The college has recently purchased 8 new AED machines, for a total of 12. Learn where they are on campus and how to use them.

FRIDAY, MARCH 4, 2016 – 9:30am-11:30am, Rm 3002
The course, free to SCC employees, will include a certification card. The training is voluntary, requiring supervisory permission to attend. Classroom size is limited, and your pre-registration is required. Wear comfortable clothing.  If a class is full, you will be placed on a wait list for a cancellation or coming class.
To register call or email Darlene Carlson or Robin Blacksmith in Safety & Security :
