Earthquakes, England and elections at the Sunday Symposium

Dr. Robert Martin-Short will be at the Oakmont Sunday Symposium on Feb. 16, and will detail what Oakmont and Santa Rosa can expect when “The Big One” comes, what we should do to prepare, and how to sign up for earthquake warning alerts. Martin-Short holds a Ph.D. in seismology from U.C. Berkeley. At Berkeley his research focused on using earthquake waves to make images of the deep interior of the Earth (like a CT scan for the planet). He also was part of the team developing the MyShake mobile application, a citizen science project that aims to turn mobile phones into seismometers.

On Sunday, Feb. 23, Oakmont resident Yvonne Horn takes us on her walk along the greatest river in England for 184 miles, from its source in the Cotswold Hills to the sea. She will pass through peaceful water meadows, unspoiled rural villages, historical towns and cities, and finally through the heart of London, to end at the Thames Barrier in Greenwich. Get inspired to put on your walking shoes!

And on March 1, David McCuan, chairman of Sonoma State’s Department of Political Science, will discuss the upcoming presidential elections, sharing his extensive research analysis system, which has successfully predicted many elections in the past. McCuan’s scholarly expertise rests in American politics and international relations. He is a sought-after guest commentator on CNN, CNBC, MSNBC and NPR. His most recent work with the media included on-site analysis and commentary at two presidential debates for ABC News Network and NPR.

The Sunday Symposium meets every Sunday at the Berger Center, 10:30 a.m.-noon. A $3 donation is requested. For more information, go to
