CONVO: A Measure of Our Social Foster Care in the U.S.
Crounse Hall – Vahlkamp Theatre, Danville KY

In the United States, there are nearly 400,000 children in the foster care system. In 2012, more than 23,000 young people aged out of foster care without permanent families. Research has shown that those who leave care without being linked to forever families are more likely to experience homelessness, unemployment, and incarceration as adults. CASA provides adult advocates to represent abused, neglected, and dependents in court. CASA is a national organization that has a local branch in Boyle County, CASA at Woodlawn. Laura Guerrant is the Executive Director of CASA at Woodlawn, and will speak on the issues that foster care children face today, nationally, and in Boyle County.

STARSHIP featuring Mickey Thomas
STARSHIP featuring Mickey Thomas
Norton Center for the Arts – Newlin Hall, Danville KY

Mickey Thomas is the owner of the soaring voice that propelled the iconic band STARSHIP through the decades of the 80’s and 90’s. With his soulful and compelling vocals, Mickey established himself as one of rock music’s most recognizable stars. In 1979, Mickey joined Jefferson Starship as lead vocalist, after the departure of Grace Slick and Marty Balin. Backed by the power of Mickey’s vocals, Jefferson Starship immediately scored a #1 hit with “Jane.” With this new sound, the group was renamed STARSHIP and continued to record an amazing string of hits including “No Way Out,” “We Built This City,” “Sara,” and an Oscar Nomination for the #1 hit “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” from the movie Mannequin. Other top hits include “Find Your Way Back,” “Stranger,” “Laying It On The Line,” and “It’s Not Over Till It’s Over” which became Major League Baseball’s theme in 1987.

CONVO: Alternative Perspectives on U.S./China Relations
CONVO: Alternative Perspectives on U.S./China Relations
Young Hall – Auditorium (Room 113), Danville KY

Dr. Eric Hyer’s lecture will lay out the usual theoretical models and assumptions that many scholars, politicians, and average citizens bring to bear in thinking about America’s relationship with China. These starting points, which are often not very carefully examined or tested, have real and lasting implications for scholarship and policymaking decisions. Dr. Hyer’s book, The Pragmatic Dragon: China’s Grand Strategy and Boundary Settlements, gives new alternative ways to understand Chinese political machinations, and he will discuss some of the cases from his book, as well as other examples of how we might better approach relations with our largest trading partner, and the largest country in the world.

CONVO: Generation X & Y: Facing Challenges in the Shadow of the Baby Boom
CONVO: Generation X & Y: Facing Challenges in the Shadow of the Baby Boom
Young Hall – Auditorium (Room 113), Danville KY

Members of Generation X (born 1965-80) and Generation Y (born after 1980) face a different economic and financial landscape than did the baby boomers (born 1946-64). A college degree has become even more important for economic success, but the cost of college continues to escalate, leading to growing student-loan burdens. The job market facing young people with or without college degrees remains difficult. Looming baby-boomer retirements and escalating healthcare costs combine to make the long-run fiscal situation, that ultimately members of Generations X and Y will inherit, seem untenable. Join William Emmons, Senior Economic Advisor for the Center for Household Financial Stability at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis as he explores the following questions: Can the members of Generations X and Y overcome the economic and financial challenges they face? How will the retirement of the baby boomers affect the job market, housing markets, and the eventual retirement prospects of those in Gen X and Gen Y?
