But when Gilder went to Yale in 1975, she found herself in a new world, training with Olympic rowers and participating in the famous Title IX naked protest, which helped define the movement for equality in college sports.

Ocean acidification is caused by well understood chemical processes, though its progression in coastal estuaries is complicated by a variety of human activities. However, the biological, societal, and economic implications of ocean acidification are poorly understood but could be large, especially in some regions like the Pacific Northwest. The region’s oyster industry has likely already experienced its negative effects. This presentation will explain ocean acidification, explore its ecological implications for Washington and the Pacific Northwest, and discuss the Panel’s recommendations. Admission: Free

Winner of 5 TONY Awards (including Best Book and Best Original Score), The Drowsy Chaperone is a loving send-up of the Jazz-age musical featuring one show-stopping song and dance number after another.

The recording comes to life and the show begins as the man in the chair looks on. Mix in two lovers on the eve of their wedding, a bumbling best man, a desperate theatre producer, a not-so-bright hostess, two gangsters posing as pastry chefs, a misguided Don Juan and an intoxicated chaperone, and you have the ingredients for an evening of madcap delight!
