Zimmermann, Linda Hudson Valley UFOs History,
Other
The Hudson Valley of New York has been a UFO hotspot for generations. This program takes the first comprehensive look at eyewitness accounts from 1909 to the present. From Manhattan to Albany, people have been seeing all shapes and sizes of craft--from the giant triangles to classic flying saucers. They have also been having uncomfortably close encounters. Is the Hudson Valley also Abduction Alley? There is also an award-winning documentary "In the Night Sky" based on my UFO books.

The Games Man, TREVOR Giants & Giraffes * Dragons & Detectives Other,
Performing Arts- Other
A UNIQUE PARTICIPATORY STAGE SHOW FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES TREVOR starts out on stilts nearly 9' tall! The first half is his Aerial Delights: an up-in-the-air extravaganza of tricks and skills featuring Wind Whistlers, Ribbon Dancers, the color-changing Chameleon Stick, volunteers from the audience, lots of call and response, and loads of laughter! When he sits down and takes of the stilts, the group is always interested in how the stilts are made and having their questions answered. Then it's game time! First, large group games for the entire audience together. Who's the Leader? and Hula Hoop Basketball are perennial favorites. Next is brainteasers, guessing games, and minute mysteries. For the 7th inning stretch, we'll all stand up for a whole series of quick partner games, switching partners between each one (they're mixers, too!) Then we'll sit back down for one more large group game to pull everyone back together. And for the crowd-stopping closer, it's the fastest game in the world: it's all of 1 second long! All in all, an hour of sheer FUN for all ages. (Check out Project: Ribbon Dancer for a great add-on craft project, too.)

Feingold, Richard John D. Rockefeller – The Richest American Who Ever Lived History,
Life Skills- Finance,
Other
Asked how he became so rich, Rockefeller replied, “God gave me my money.” Rockefeller was in the oil refining business early after the Pennsylvania oil rush began in 1859. He built state-of-the-art refineries and bought out his rivals. Rockefeller negotiated secret rebates with the railroads and formed what would become the Standard Oil Trust. Eventually the Supreme Court declared Standard Oil a monopoly and ordered it be broken up. But the individual oil companies were worth more separately and Rockefeller would go on to enter a second life of philanthropy which lives on to today. Presenter: Rick Feingold teaches “The Building of America” at Bergen Community College and holds a degree in History from Rutgers University.
