Following in the path of classic harmony groups like Boyz II Men, The Temptations, and Take 6, while incorporating the pop and neo-soul influence of artists like Bruno Mars, Daft Punk, and Pharrell Williams, five member veteran vocal band, Ball in the House, will move audiences with their music. 

With their extensive tour schedule (averaging 200 dates a year), Ball in the House reaches millions and is arguably one of the hardest working, most successful indie bands today. Over the years, they have performed with several artists including The Beach Boys, Gladys Knight, Kool & the Gang, KC & The Sunshine Band, Jessica Simpson, and Smokey Robinson.

Equalogy utilizes live, interactive theatre to educate audiences. Equalogy has toured to colleges and universities in 15 states. Because the program is entertaining and inclusive to all, it has been tremendously popular. The plays were developed by individuals with direct experience in the domestic violence and sexual assault fields and are written, directed and performed by professional actors. Theatre provides an opportunity for students to explore the issues and their feelings as they watch the story unfold.

Ted Ames of Stonington will present “Exploring Why Atlantic Cod Have Not Recovered.”

“My talk will be about the ecological linkage between cod and prey species such as alewives and Atlantic herring, based on recent trawl survey data and fishermen's ecological knowledge,” Ames said. “Combining the two datasets with historical information suggests alewives were a critical factor affecting the loss and the potential recovery of coastal cod spawning groups in Maine.”

Ames is a senior advisor of Penobscot East Resource Center, an external Graduate Faculty Member at University of Maine, Orono, research associate at Bowdoin College, and member of the Marine Fisheries Advisory Council of NOAA.  He fished commercially for 28 years and has authored several peer-reviewed articles on historical fisheries ecology, fishermen’s ecological knowledge, and related subjects. He holds an MS in Biochemistry from the University of Maine. Ames is the recipient of an honorary PhD from UMM in 2015, a 2005 MacArthur Award, the 2007 Geddes W. Simpson Distinguished Lecturer at the University of Maine, and was Bowdoin’s 2010-11 visiting Coastal Studies Scholar.

The lecture is sponsored by the Eastern Maine Conservation Initiative and UMM and it is free and open to the public.

When the Constitutional Convention concluded on September 17th 1787, Benjamin Franklin was asked whether we had a republic or a monarchy. He replied “A Republic if you can keep it.” Franklin spoke of the need for faith, humility, compromise and unanimity going forward as he prepared to sign the Constitution.

Professors Tora Johnson and Jon Reisman will host the forum on Thursday September 15th at 6:30 PM in Merrill Library, drawing on their research, writing and experience. A community discussion will follow.
