Club Mixer: “Around the World” Digital Happy Hour

Event Date: Saturday August 22: 7:00-8:00pm MST

Bring your beverage of choice and make friends with Cornellians from alumni Clubs in Arizona, Charlotte, Chicago, Los Angeles, Mid-America, Northern NJ, Seattle, Washington DC and around the world – Beijing, Japan, Philippines, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Toronto. It will be Cornellians across the generations: from recent graduates to those who are now grandparents to Cornellians.

Mingle in small discussion groups centered around Cornell-related themes. Share your favorite spots in Collegetown, reminisce on the festivities of Spring/Slope Day, and learn how Cornell has changed over the decades.

We will use Zoom video chat and split everyone into small breakout rooms, so everyone has a chance to talk and share with just a few people. We will rotate everyone around, so you will meet many Cornellians through the mixer. We will start the video chat a few hours early, so come early if you may need technical assistance, and we will help you before the mixer starts.

Zoom link details will be provided in the registration confirmation e-mail.

THE SPACE FORCE: From Rhetoric to Reality

Thursday June 25th, 7:30-9:30pm MST

Presenter:
Dr. Timiebi Aganaba-Jeanty, Assistant Professor, School of the Future of Innovation in Society with a courtesy appointment at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, Arizona State University

Join us for a thoughtful discussion with Dr. Timiebi Aganaba-Jeanty, spouse of esteemed Cornell Club of AZ member Jean-Moise Jeanty JGSM ‘18.

In June of 2018, the Trump administration directed the Department of Defense and Pentagon to begin the process necessary to establish a Space Force as the sixth branch of the Armed Forces, separate and equal to the other branches. Since then, the media and pundit mill has interpreted this call in a variety of ways. Finally, on December 20, 2019, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) established the Space Force with support from Congress.

What does this actually mean for the future of space endeavors in America and the world?
We will discuss the perceived threats that led to the establishment of the Space Force and describe its several component parts, introduce some of the debates about the legality of military uses of space, and challenge you to make up your own mind if peace, security, and development in space will be advanced through this new institution.
