Thursday, August 15, 7pm: Exploring Happiness
"Hector & the Search for Happiness" is a rich, exhilarating, and hilarious tale from director Peter Chelsom. Hector (Simon Pegg) is a quirky psychiatrist who has become increasingly tired of his humdrum life. As he tells his girlfriend, Clara (Rosamund Pike), he feels like a fraud: he hasn't really tasted life, and yet he's offering advice to patients who are just not getting any happier. So Hector decides to break out of his deluded and routine driven life. Armed with buckets of courage and child-like curiosity, he embarks on a global quest in hopes of uncovering the elusive secret formula for true happiness. And so begins a larger than life adventure with riotously funny results. Based on the world-wide best-selling novel of the same name.

Advanced Energy Technology- The Juice of The New Paradigm?
By Joel Garbon
Powerful interests have long prevented the big changes we all need in energy sources, but Breakthrough Power opens the doors on game-changing nonpolluting inventions. Innovative magnetic motors, zero point energy, water-as-fuel, and other new paradigm advances offer keys to a truly sustainable world.
Joel Garbon served as New Energy Movement president for 11 years, educating the public and policymakers alike about breakthrough energy technologies and their implications for human society and our imperiled planet, while also serving as an advocate organization for inventors of these technologies. He is a founding member of New Energy Congress, a forum of technical professionals who investigate new energy technologies... 
Joel also co-authored, with investigative journalist Jeane Manning, the award-winning book BREAKTHROUGH POWER: How Quantum-Leap New Energy Inventions Can Transform Our World, which chronicles the challenges, opportunities, and progress in the new energy technology field. The authors make the appeal for a “tidal wave of wisdom” and the concurrent evolution of energy technology and human consciousness as foundations for a new era on planet Earth.
Joel received a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Science from Miami University, Oxford, Ohio. He has worked for more than 30 years as an international industrial science consultant and educator within the chemical, pulp and paper, and water treatment industries. He is the inventor and developer of several successful commercial technologies used within these industries.
