When Plants Attack

Event: 
Sat, 07/22/2017 - 10:00am - 4:00pm

Imagine a carnivorous plant, patiently waiting to snap up any insect that lands on its leaves. Imagine a parasitic plant, creeping along the side of a tree sapping its nutrients. Imagine an invasive plant, releasing toxins from its roots to poison nearby plants and eliminate competition. Do these scenarios sound like science fiction to you? Think again! Join us anytime for hands-on activities exploring plant adaptations that allow them to attack and for a 2 pm presentation about carnivorous plants, parasites, allelopathy, and more at the Wet Center.

Junction 48 Presented by Anthony Zaragoza

Event: 
Thu, 06/01/2017 - 6:30pm - 9:00pm

Kareem leads an aimless life between odd jobs and hanging out with his buddies in a crime-ridden Arab ghetto of the mixed city of Lyd. A family tragedy brings him closer to his singer girlfriend, Manar, and motivates him to do something more with his life. When Kareem and his group finally get a chance to perform in a Tel Aviv hip-hop club, the star potential of the 'first Arab rapper' is quickly noticed. Although he raps "I'm not political," Kareem and the group use music to express their tough life as Palestinian youth. But the road to success is never easy... Kareem and his group must face violent nationalistic Jewish rappers, government-imposed gentrification and troubled drug-dealing friends. When Manar's family threatens to harm them if she performs publicly with him, the time comes for Kareem to either surrender to conservative tradition or stand up for the woman he loves, the artist he respects...

Followed by a Q & A with Dr. Zaragoza!
