The Horse @ Natural History Museum of Utah
Jul 21 – Jan 4 all-day
The Horse @ Natural History Museum of Utah | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Explore the Enduring Bond between Humans and Horses:

The Natural History Museum of Utah is excited to host The Horse.

Over time, humans have preyed upon horses, domesticated them, bred them for work and play, and forged deep emotional and spiritual connections with them. Come discover the fascinating story of how humans have shaped the horse, and how the horse, in turn has shaped us.

This special exhibition includes cultural objects from around the world, a hand-painted diorama depicting the evolution of the horse, and interactives that invite you to test your strength in horsepower, identify different breeds, and peek inside a life-size, moving horse.

Explore one of Utah’s most important horse stories – the connection of the Ute people to horses. The Ute were among the first North American tribes to acquire horses from the Spanish in the 1600s. Discover how horses transformed Ute life in ways that continue to reverberate today.

The Horse opens July 19 to members and July 21 to all guests.

Horses are integral to our history and touch us as individuals. Celebrate our bond with these magnificent creatures!

World Affairs Lecture “Nuclear Weapons in the 21st Century” @ Vieve Gore Concert Hall in the Emma Eccles Jones Conservatory @ Westminster College
Oct 21 @ 7:00 pm
World Affairs Lecture “Nuclear Weapons in the 21st Century” @ Vieve Gore Concert Hall in the Emma Eccles Jones Conservatory @ Westminster College  | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Westminster and the Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy present a lecture by Rose E. Gottemoeller, “Nuclear Weapons in the 21st Century” as part of the Ambassador John Price and Marcia Price World Affairs Lecture Series.

The Cold War ended over 20 years ago, and for the average American the threat of nuclear war seemed to drift away. But there are still thousands of nuclear weapons around the globe, in addition to bomb-grade nuclear materials, that terrorist groups and several states appear intent on acquiring. The threat is real and, in fact, may be increasing. With this in mind, the U.S. Government has reinvigorated efforts to secure and reduce stockpiles of weapons and vulnerable nuclear materials, and to halt the spread of nuclear weapons. As Under Secretary, Gottemoeller advises the Secretary of State on arms control, nonproliferation and disarmament. She was a senior associate with the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, and served as the Director of the Carnegie Moscow Center. Ms. Gottemoeller received a B.S. from Georgetown University, and a M.A. from George Washington University, and is fluent in Russian.

This lecture is presented in partnership with HEAL UTAH. The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, visit http://utahdiplomacy.org.

Lecture: “Equality at The Kitchen Table” @ Bill and Vieve Gore School of Business Auditorium @ Westminster College
Oct 23 @ 12:00 pm
Lecture: “Equality at The Kitchen Table” @ Bill and Vieve Gore School of Business Auditorium @ Westminster College  | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Westminster College presents a lecture on “Equality at the Kitchen Table” on Oct. 23, 2014, at noon in the Gore School of Business Auditorium.

The charge for marriage equality in Utah came about from a simple belief that we all deserve equal protection. It was a collaboration of visionaries, attorneys, plaintiffs, and community support. It wasn’t certain that Utah would be instrumental in leading the nation in marriage equality, but we knew that the conservation needed to happen here; because we believe that a bigger conversation is a better conversation, and every voice is needed. Join us as we share personal and intimate stories about how we got here, what’s currently happening, and what this means for the rest of the country and generations to come.

Derek Kitchen grew up in South Jordan, Utah. He earned his degree in political science and Spanish from the University of Utah. Kitchen has always been passionate about local politics and development and loves being involved the growing Salt Lake City community. He is one of the six plaintiffs leading the case for marriage equality in Utah, Kitchen vs. Herbert.

Moudi Sbeity moved to Salt Lake City in July of 2006, as an evacuee from the Lebanese/Israeli war. He earned his undergraduate degree in economics and philosophy from Utah State University and worked on a master’s degree in economics from the University of Utah. Sbeity and Kitchen both own and operate a local business in SLC, Laziz, serving grocery stores and farmer’s markets state wide. Sbeity is one of the six plaintiffs leading the case for marriage equality in Utah.

Stegner Lecture Series – Nature’s Trust: Environmental Law for a New Ecological Age @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law
Oct 23 @ 12:15 pm – 1:30 pm
Stegner Lecture Series - Nature’s Trust: Environmental Law for a New Ecological Age @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Environmental law has failed us all. As ecosystems collapse across the globe and the climate crisis intensifies, environmental agencies worldwide use their authority to permit the very harm that they are supposed to prevent. Growing numbers of citizens now realize they must act before it is too late. This book exposes what is wrong with environmental law and offers transformational change based on the public trust doctrine. An ancient and enduring principle, the trust doctrine asserts public property rights to crucial resources. Its core logic compels government, as trustee, to protect natural inheritance such as air and water for all humanity. Propelled by populist impulses and democratic imperatives, the public trust surfaces at epic times in history as a manifest human right. But until now it has lacked the precision necessary for citizens, government employees, legislators, and judges to fully safeguard the natural resources we rely on for survival and prosperity.

Children's Service Society of Utah New Home Open House @ Murray | Utah | United States

Children’s Service Society of Utah (CSSU) will hold an open house to celebrate its 130th anniversary and its new home. Children’s Service Society began in October 1884 as a daycare facility. Within two weeks, CSSU became an orphanage when an unwed mother with a baby in her arms knocked on the door looking for a family to care for her infant. Since that beginning, CSS has grown to become the oldest non-denominational child welfare and family support agency in Utah.
