The School For Lies

Playwright David Ives (Venus in Fur) pulls out all the stops in a deliciously witty, over-¬‐the-¬‐top farce, THE SCHOOL FOR LIES, a San Diego premiere presented by North Coast Repertory Theatre. As in Molière’s The Misanthrope upon which it is based, the elaborately costumed characters play out their decadent lives in elegant 17th century French drawing rooms. However, the situations and scandals are decidedly 21st century ― frivolous lawsuits, sleazy lawyers, flip-¬‐flops, and rock ‘n roll ―to name a few. In a stunning display of verbal acrobatics, Ives has his scheming, gossiping characters speak in hilarious rhyming couplets that will leave the audience weak with laughter as they anticipate the zinger that always comes. Be prepared for an evening of unabashed merriment.

The Elixir of Love

Is it a magic elixir or just a bottle of cheap Bordeaux? Nemorino desperately wants to marry the wealthy and out-of-his-league Adina and turns to an "elixir of love" in hopes of winning her, spends all his money and has to enlist to get cash for more. A romantic comedy of Hollywood proportions with far more satisfactory results.

2014 Maritime Economic Development Workshop

The theme of the 2014 Maritime Economic Development Workshop is Tackling Port Economic Development Challenges and Measuring Effectiveness. Port authorities and their private-sector partners invest a great deal of time and money into outreach and marketing activities to attract customers, generate business, address stakeholder concerns and uniquely "brand" their organization. In the near-term, the results of these efforts are often difficult to quantify or measure. This workshop will incorporate presentations from experts, along with interactive, facilitated problem-solving discussions, to identify key economic development challenges at ports, recommend methods for solving them, and discuss measurement techniques to help ensure a port's limited resources are being used most effectively.

Birth to Grandmotherhood

Childrearing in Human Evolution: The goal of this symposium to take a broad view of the importance of child-rearing in human evolution, from birth to the impact of grandmothers. From the moment of birth, human infants require an inordinate amount of care and, unlike our nearest living relatives, remain dependent on a variety of caretakers during an unusually long maturation period followed by extraordinary adult longevity. How did such a distinctive pattern of development evolve and what other human features are linked to it? This conference will take a comparative perspective and consider neuroendocrine factors, energetics, life-history trade-offs and consequences for culture.
