Your birth chart (zodiac) is a 360-degree “map” of the sky at the time you were born. Each celestial body represents a part of your psyche and tells its own story. This workshop introduces astrology as a framework for understanding core parts of your personality by coming to understand your Sun, Moon, and Rising signs, which tell the story of you in the day-to-day, how you process emotion, and your external persona. At least two days before class, registrants must email firstname.lastname@example.org to provide their city/state of birth, exact time, and date of birth. Registrants will receive a printed copy of their birth chart and a handout at the time of the class.

Have you ever felt like Medicare regulations are a black box? There’s an alphabet soup of plans, a book of fine print and a calendar full of dates to remember. The whole thing seems like a mystery with too few clues to solve. Robert Harvey, a Licensed Insurance Agent with HealthMarkets, can answer many of your questions about Medicare, from the beginning of the process on. He will discuss when you are eligible, what is the timeline for enrollment without penalties, what original Medicare covers and what it doesn’t, what additional plans work in conjunction with original Medicare, and your financial assistance options. Class takes place on Zoom. Students must have reliable internet, and an audio and video enabled computer, tablet or smartphone to participate.
Modern engines offer high reliability and good performance through the use of computerized systems for fuel delivery and engine timing. Most of these systems are “black boxes” that can no longer be serviced by weekend mechanics with ordinary tools. The EM course covers those repairs that do-it-yourselfers can still perform, teaches how to diagnose problems that might be beyond your ability to fix, and how to share information with your mechanic so the right repairs get performed. The Engine Maintenance course also covers basic mechanical systems such as drive systems (propellers), steering systems, and engine controls. The last chapter discusses solutions you might use to problems that could occur while afloat and away from a repair facility. Gasoline, diesel, and outboard engines are treated independently in this chapter.
The new Engine Maintenance course 2011 has been put into one ten-chapter course that stresses the diagnosis of modern systems, while also teaching the basics of engine layout and operation. Gasoline inboards, outboards, and diesel engines are taught in a way that reinforces the common aspects. Ten sessions and a final examination. Instructor: Gary Bergendorf
