In this online class, we learn via internet readings, videos, podcasts, guest lecturers and discussions that link students and experts. The course will make you deeply aware of water as an essential element for all life as it explores questions such as: Why is water an important part of many religious rituals?  Why is water considered 'Blue Gold'? What is your water footprint? Does water have memory? We will use perspectives from the arts, humanities and sciences, and also focus on the global politics of water and sustainability. Participate any time of day, from anywhere with high speed online access. No pre-reqs. 3 cr.  LA -- CLTC 22100 - Water = Life May - June Summer Session. Faculty: Mara Alper @ malper@ithaca.edu

Mara Alper was an invited faculty member and panelist at the Global Social Action Film Festival and Institute in Bali, April 12 - 17. Her workshop on “Approaches to Environmental Media Making” focused on water issues and was attended by Institute Fellows from Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, as well as US filmmakers. She was also a panelist on “Environmental Films and Social Activism.”

The mission of the Global Social Change Film Festival and Institute is to support filmmakers to be effective social activists and support social activists to be engaging storytellers.

While in Bali, Mara will gather video on the intricate traditional water rituals and irrigation systems in Bali for teaching her Water=Life summer online course and wider venues related to water issues.

Want to increase the effectiveness of your next workout? Increase the intensity, rather than the time spent exercising. 

A recent study published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise found that exercise afterburn (calories burned after you are finished exercising) increases with more vigorous physical activity. In two other studies, researchers found that if subjects exercised (ran or biked) between 70-75% of their VO2 max (you would not be able to carry a conversation at this pace, while at about 50% of VO2 max, you would), subjects burned an additional 300-700 calories post-exercise.
