A climate researcher for Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory was interviewed for a piece on The Weather Channel on Monday -- a long-distance interview that took place partially at the Tri-Valley Community Television studios in Pleasanton.
Benjamin Santer sat in the TV30 studio for the interview and answered questions posed by a reporter in Atlanta. Santer's specialty is statistical analysis of climate data sets and detection/attribution of climate change forcings.
More information about TV30 can be found online, at www.trivalleytv.org.
Hope Hospice of the Tri-Valley is offering a free forum on end-of-life discussions from 6:30-8:30 p.m. next Thursday (June 26) in the Dublin City Council Chambers at 100 Civic Plaza.
"Many people avoid end-of-life discussions, and taking proactive steps can help keep you and your loved ones from being blindsided when a medical emergency may occur," said Hope Hospice CEO Victoria Emmons. "The key is having these conversations when you are healthy enough to have them."
The evening event includes a screening of the documentary, "Consider the Conversation," followed by a panel discussion by medical and communication experts. The documentary highlights the American struggle with communication and preparation for the end of life.
To make a reservation for the forum, visit www.hopehospice.com or call 829-8770, ext. 252.
Host families needed
Edu-Culture Immersion is looking for Pleasanton families to host European teens this summer as part of the English Language Immersion Program.
The Spanish or French high school students, aged 15 or 16, will be in the area for two to four weeks in June, July and August to learn more about the U.S. and practice the English language.
Host families would provide a shared or private room, and meals. Edu-Culture interviews the host families before placing the visiting teens, and then provides chaperones and guides, and is available to help with any problem or emergency.
