NCLL 165C - Building an Independent & Conservative Investment Portfolio

"Know what you own, and know why you own it." - Peter Lynch With Financial Institutions advertising at record rates, many investors feel bombarded by sales tactics and boilerplate advice. This class will review case studies of a typical retired person's portfolio of mutual funds, stocks, and bonds. You will learn what type of investment choices you have, and how these asset classes could improve your current retirement lifestyle. After we learn and review what is inside that sample retirement account currently, we will build a conservative model portfolio together, with today's technology to assist us. This three-session class will give you a great overview of what conservative investing is all about. In today's volatile economic world, investors have to know how conservative investing really works. No matter what level of investment education you may have, this class aims to educate and improve your financial decision-making ability in retirement. You may bring your spouse or guest at no additional cost. All you need is your curiosity and questions to bring to class. About Mr. Josh Ortner, CTFA: Mr. Ortner started his education right here at LCCC, before graduating from Kent State University with his bachelors in business administration. When working for a financial institution after college, he realized that the high sales pressure tactics they use, just don't work anymore. After experiencing 5+ years in owning his own investment company, he became a Certified Trust & Financial Advisor, which requires weathered experience in trust fund investment management, and trust fund tax management.

NCLL 313C - Protecting Health on a Warming Planet

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change refers to this period as the era of 'climate opportunities.' The Lancet Commission on Health and Climate Change wrote that 'tackling climate change could be the greatest global health opportunity of the 21st century.' These prestigious groups outline the risks and challenges posed by climate change. A presentation of the evidence that climate change is real and caused by human activity will be followed by discussions of related health issues. The World Health Organization defines health as 'a state of complete mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of diseases or infirmity.' Topics to be covered include heat, precipitation and storms, infectious diseases, rising sea level, undernutrition, and violence. There will be an emphasis on the effects expected in Ohio and on vulnerable populations worldwide. Registrants may wish to consult Heat Advisory: Protecting Health on a Warming Planet, MIT Press, 2016, available in the Kendal, Oberlin Public, and Oberlin College Libraries, Mindfair Books, and, on line from MIT Press.

NCLL 314C - Use the Past to Serve the Present: Archaeology and Politics in China

This three-part lecture series will introduce some of the most dramatic discoveries in 20th century Chinese archaeology, and how some of the artifacts uncovered have been employed in 20th-21st century Chinese politics. The first lecture will discuss the use of antique artifacts as tools of legitimation during imperial China, then will cover the art of the Shang dynasty (c. 1600 ' 1046 BCE) and ways archaeological proof of the dynasty's existence, and therefore the antiquity of Chinese culture, contributed to the beginnings of China's 20th century resurgence as a world power. The second lecture will examine art of the Warring States Period (c. 450-221 BCE), and how a large set of bells from the period discovered in 1977 appeared both during a ceremony for the return of Hong Kong to Chinese rule and in the Beijing Olympics. Finally, the third lecture will detail the spectacular archaeological discoveries associated with the tomb site of China's First Emperor (259 BCE ' 10 September 210 BCE), including the famed Terra-Cotta army and other recent findings, and will examine how the legacy of this complex and controversial historical figure has become intertwined with that of Mao Zedong (1893 ' 1976), the founder of the People's Republic of China.

NHLH 116C - Yoga

This five-week course will utilize the science of Yoga, incorporating breath, gentle stretching, strengthening, deep relaxation, affirmation and meditation as a tool to experience a heightened sense of well being in and out of class. We are what we have always imagined ourselves to be. The imagination has been limited or conditioned by a culture which sees itself as, at best, minimally well or happy. We must outgrow the cultural conditionings that discourage our continual growth and expand our range of motion, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. We will explore the myths of aging which prevent our becoming more expansive. We will look at our life-style choices, modify or expand them. We will look at changing diet to accommodate our new bodies. We will reaffirm ourselves as dynamic beings. The needs of each student will be acknowledged. Dress comfortably, bring a mat and a positive outlook.
