Before there was WikiLeaks, there was Daniel Ellsberg. His 1971 leak of the Pentagon Papers — a secret study detailing the lies of a succession of presidents about the war in Vietnam — nearly landed him in prison for life.

The Park Center for Independent Media presents “An Evening with Daniel Ellsberg” on Wednesday, October 20, in Ford Hall. The Oscar-nominated documentary “The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers” will be screened at 7 p.m., with Ellsberg speaking at 8:30 p.m. Both the film and lecture are free and open to the public. Ellsberg will sign copies of his books following his talk.

Thinking of trying to eat a healthier diet?

Healthy eating habits are essential to a wellness lifestyle. To maintain a healthy diet, eat fewer processed foods and more whole grains, limit sugar and salt, and stay hydrated (but not by drinking soda and high-sugar energy drinks - stick to water). Learning how to interpret the nutrition labels on foods can help you determine which foods give you more "bang" for your "buck." Try to eat small, frequent meals throughout the day to maintain your energy level for optimal performance in the gym and in the classroom. For more tips on eating smart, visit the Center for Health Promotion website's section, "Nutrition and Healthy Eating" at www.ithaca.edu/sacl/healthpromotion/nutrition/.
