Hypertufa pots can be made from existing molds to produce the pots you desire. Hypertufa resembles natural tufa stone, but is significantly cheaper, along with being lighter than other stone or clay pots. What's more, is that hypertufa pots are extremely durable, and should last through multiple winters if left outside. Participants will learn the basics of making a hypertufa pot and will get to take home their creation. <em>Pre-registration is required</em>; register online or call 701-241-1492.

Hypertufa pots can be made from existing molds to produce the pots you desire. Hypertufa resembles natural tufa stone, but is significantly cheaper, along with being lighter than other stone or clay pots. What's more, is that hypertufa pots are extremely durable, and should last through multiple winters if left outside. Participants will learn the basics of making a hypertufa pot and will get to take home their creation.

On Monday, Aug. 21 between noon and 2 p.m., the Moon will pass between the Sun and the Earth, causing a solar eclipse. This solar eclipse is the first to be partly visible from all 50 states since 1776! It’s also the deepest eclipse to be visible in the Fargo-Moorhead area since 1979, covering just over 80% of the Sun’s disk. To help us prepare for this celestial occurrence, Dr. Juan Cabenela, Professor of Physics and Astronomy at MSUM will visit the Main Library. He’ll explain the causes of solar eclipses, but even more importantly, he’ll tell us how we can safely view this stunning event. Join us and learn about the Great American Eclipse!

When he passed away in 2014, his obituary which they wrote together, went viral. Her 2017 memoir, <em>It’s Okay to Laugh (Crying is Cool Too)</em>, talks about her husband, Aaron, and his cancer, her life before Aaron (moving to NYC in her twenties, stalking ex-boyfriends on social media), and after Aaron (chapter titles like “Cool Widow Kind of Wants to Kiss Someone”). Her memoir is hilarious and heartbreaking and has received wide praise from critics. Books will be available for purchase. This event is free and open to the public.

Indeed, data from the past decade show that a parent's deployment is a risk factor for emotional and behavioral problems among children of all ages, as well as for spouses and, of course, service members themselves. Dr. Gewirtz will present data from her program of research on deployment and military families in general, and, in particular, the results of a randomized effectiveness trial of a parenting program - ADAPT - to support post-deployment military families with school aged children. Data will be presented on the program, its impact on parenting, parental mental health, and children's adjustment over time, and challenges and opportunities associated with implementing evidence-based family programs in military settings.</p> <p>Dr. Abigail Gewirtz, Ph.D., is the Lindahl Leadership Professor, Dept. of Family Social Science &amp; Institute of Child Development, &amp; Director, Institute of Translational Research in Children's Mental Health, University of Minnesota. She is also Editor-in-Chief, International Journal of Psychology, and presents nationally and internationally on children, stress, trauma, resilience, and prevention science.</p> <p>A reception with treats and beverages will follow the presentation in the Butte Lounge of the Memorial Union at NDSU.
