POLAR BEARS

 

Much has been in the news lately about Polar Bears, their changing habitats and climate change.  Polar bears have long thrived in one of the harshest climates on the planet.  But now global warming temperatures and thinning ice are threatening their habitat and their future.  The longer it takes for ice to form the longer polar bears have to fast beyond the summer months.  Many scientists now worry that polar bears may not survive.

WEEKLY BULLETIN – JANUARY 29 – FEBRUARY 2, 2018

 

GALILEO ACADEMY

Weekly Bulletin

JANUARY 29 – FEBRUARY 2, 2018

 

GROUND HOG DAY

FEBRUARY 2nd

 

Groundhog Day or Ground-Hog Day, is a popular tradition celebrated in the United States and Canada on February 2.

It derives from the Pennsylvania Dutch superstition that if a groundhog emerging from its burrow on this day sees a shadow due to clear weather, it will retreat to its den and winter will persist for six more weeks, and if he does not, due to cloudiness, spring season will arrive early.

The weather lore was brought from German-speaking areas where the badger is the forecasting animal. This appears to be an enhanced version of the lore that clear weather on Candlemas forebodes a prolonged winter.

The Groundhog Day ceremony held at Punxsutawney in central Pennsylvania has become the most attended. The 1993 movie (Groundhog Day) helped boost recognition of the custom, and the celebration has spread even further afield. The largest Groundhog Day celebration is held in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, where crowds as large as 40,000 gather each year (nearly eight times the year-round population of the town). The average draw had been about 2,000 until the year after the movie screened in 1993, after which attendance rose to about 10,000. The official Phil is pretended to be a supercentenarian, having been the same forecasting beast since 1887.

JANUARY 2018 MOON PHASES

 

Jsnuary 2018 is an active year with interesting Moon activities.   We had a full moon on January 1st, which has been named the “Wolf Moon” by Native Americans of New England and the Great Lakes because at this time of the year, the wolves howl in hunger. The Full Moon on the 31st is called a Blue Moon because it’s the 2nd Full Moon in the month. You could also say that it could be the “Snow Moon” that normally we see in February.

 

On January 31st, there is also a total eclipse of the moon, visible in Australia, Asia, Australia, Pacific Ocean and North America.

The Youth Theater Project (YTP): A FREE after school program providing high school students with PAID internships in theater.  During the 8 week program, we focus on collaborative play-making, improvisation, and stage skills as our participants work together to create and then perform in their own one-act plays. The San Francisco Mime Troupe is a Tony Award winning political theater company and during YTP, we allow our students to explore and expand their own political views: they have the chance to choose the content of their own show!  The program begins on Feb. 12th and runs until April 10th. Our two respective groups meet three days a week (either M/W/F or Tues/Thurs/F) from 4:15-7:15 in our studio in the Mission @ 855 Treat Ave. On top of the social and performative skills that are gained in YTP, our participants also receive free meals during each class period and a small monetary incentive for transportation purposes.

Many former Galileo students, football players, family members and fans cheered the players on to victory!  Galileo’s fans know how to cheer!

The GRAMMYs are returning to Oakland for GRAMMY Camp® Weekend on Saturday, December 9.

WE STILL HAVE OPENINGS IN ALL THREE TRACKS. Please let me know if you have any questions.

This free program, tailored for high-school age students, takes place from 10am-6pm on Saturday, December 9 at:

Best Buy Teen Tech Center at Alternatives in Action – McClymonds High School

2607 Myrtle Street,

Oakland, CA 94610

GRAMMY Camp® is a one-day non-residential music industry experience where a small group (25-40) of students gain an introduction to the business of music and how they can become successful in it.

We are offering three tracks in Oakland:

  • Video Production
  • Vocal Performance
  • Electronic Music Production

Video Production

Students receive comprehensive instruction on video recording techniques, including camera and miking technique, pre-and post production in multiple applications. Campers will also learn aspects of traditional music and video production, and budgeting as applied to today’s rapidly changing industry. Students should have a rudimentary understanding of video recording equipment and video editing software.

Vocal Performance

This track is for singers only.  Singers’ skills will be honed with a focus on vocal techniques, background (live and recorded) and lead singing.  This track provides campers with the opportunity to work and collaborate with instrumental combos as well as the songwriters, while learning valuable insights on sound business practices including effective marketing.

 

Electronic Music Production

Participants will learn state-of-the-art methods of programming, editing, sampling and mixing on digital audio work stations to help further develop their original compositions. This Career Track will also expose students to cutting-edge techniques in digital music production, remixing and sound manipulation.

 

Lunch is included.  Limited spots are reserved on a first come-first served basis.

Registration is easy and online:  

http://grammyfoundation.formstack.com/forms/grammy_camp_weekend_registrationform_2017_oakland

We really want to extend this opportunity to as many students in the area as possible and look forward to hearing from you — and if we’ve reached you in error, please feel free to redirect the information or us — to the appropriate contact!

THANKSGIVING!!

 

FACULTY/STAFF

 

WORD OF THE WEEK:  THANKSGIVING:  Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday celebrated in Canada, the United States, some of the Caribbean islands, and Liberia. It began as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. Similarly named festival holidays occur in Germany and Japan. Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States, and around the same part of the year in other places. Although Thanksgiving has historical roots in religious and cultural traditions, it has long been celebrated as a secular holiday as well.

 

In the United States, the modern Thanksgiving holiday tradition is traced to a sparsely documented 1621 celebration at Plymouth in present-day Massachusetts, and also to a well recorded 1619 event in Virginia. The 1621 Plymouth feast and thanksgiving was prompted by a good harvest. Pilgrims and Puritans who began emigrating from England in the 1620s and 1630s carried the tradition of Days of Fasting and Days of Thanksgiving with them to New England. The 1619 arrival of 38 English settlers at Berkeley Hundred in Charles City County, Virginia, concluded with a religious celebration as dictated by the group’s charter from the London Company, which specifically required “that the day of our ships arrival at the place assigned … in the land of Virginia shall be yearly and perpetually kept holy as a day of thanksgiving to Almighty God.”

VETERANS DAY

 

FACULTY/STAFF

 

WORD OF THE WEEK:  VETERANS DAY: Veterans Day is an official United States public holiday, observed annually on November 11, that honors military veterans; that is, persons who served in the United States Armed Forces. It coincides with other holidays, including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, celebrated in other countries that mark the anniversary of the end of World War I; major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect. The United States previously observed Armistice Day. The U.S. holiday was renamed Veterans Day in 1954.

Veterans Day is not to be confused with Memorial Day, a U.S. public holiday in May; Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, while Memorial Day honors those who died while in military service. It is also not to be confused with Armed Forces Day, a minor U.S. remembrance that also occurs in May, which specifically honors those currently serving in the U.S. military.
