(2010 film) from Wikipedia. "The King's Speech is a 2010 British historical drama film directed by Tom Hooper and written by David Seidler. Colin Firth plays King George VI who, to cope with a stammer, sees Lionel Logue, an Australian speech therapist played by Geoffrey Rush."

Plot summary from IMDB. "Tells the story of the man who became King George VI, the father of Queen Elizabeth II. After his brother abdicates, George ('Bertie') reluctantly assumes the throne. Plagued by a dreaded stammer and considered unfit to be king, Bertie engages the help of an unorthodox speech therapist named Lionel Logue . . ." ~ Written by Anonymous.

Synopsis from IMDB. "The film opens with Prince Albert, Duke of York (later King George VI), known to his wife and family as 'Bertie' (played by Colin Firth), the second son of King George V, speaking at the close of the 1925 British Empire Exhibition at Wembley Stadium, with his wife Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter) by his side. His stammering speech visibly unsettles the thousands of listeners in the audience. The prince tries several unsuccessful treatments and gives up, until the Duchess persuades him to see Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush), an Australian speech therapist in London . . ." ~ Last updated by polsixe.

Palisades on the Glen:
Antique Information Day and
Red Coats Moving

 Google image from http://blog.homestars.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/antiques.jpg

Thursday, January 19, 2012 - 2:00 - 4:00 p.m.

What is antique? How to determine the Worth of a treasured item.

Realize the potential of your heirlooms! Treasure Antiques of Oakville will offer advice on Appraisals, Content and Estate Sales.

If you have a piece that you feel may be of value, Treasure Antiques will be pleased to do an appraisal, on site, for a minimal fee.

Refreshments will be served.

Red Coats Moving Solutions will also offer helpful downsizing tips.

Tips for Downsizing from Red Coats Moving:

● A well-planned move can have a huge impact on your settling quickly and comfortably into your new life. If you have lived in your home for many years, the thought of moving can be quite overwhelming. However, with these great tips you can start preparing now!

● Make a date with yourself once a week for 2 to 3 hours. You are setting aside time for sorting through your home. Remember it has taken you many years to accumulate things, it is going to take you some time to let them go.

● Pick a "magic" number, and stick with it. If you do like to keep boxes for potential gifts, limit your collectiion to 4 and don't add any more until you have used one up.

● Have 3 sorting piles: 1 - Keep; 2 - Sell, donate and recycle; and 3 - Rubbish. Remove the donations and rubbish as soon as possible.

● When sorting clothes, take all of them out of the closet and put them on the bed. Hold the item up to yourself, if the colour gives you a lift and you feel good about it, keep it, if not, let go.

● Try each pair of shoes on to make sure they fit comfortably and you can still walk in them! Those high heels sitting in the back of the closet may be ready to be recycled.

● Use birthdays and special holidays to give away some of the things you don't use any more. One of those pretty teacups and sauces filled with Valentine chocolates might be a nice gift to a grand-daughter; the whole collection is not.

● Most importantly, take the time to say goodbye to the things that are not coming with you.

GasLand Synopsis from Fandango. "As American energy firms look for new sources of petroleum, natural gas has become an increasingly important part of their portfolios, especially after the 2005 Energy Policy Act (created with the participation of Dick Cheney, a former executive with energy giants Halliburton) removed environmental protection restrictions against hydraulic fracturing drilling (known in the trade as 'fracking' . . ." ~ By Mark Deming, Rovi.

Wednesday, February 15, 2012 - Starting at 7:00 p.m.

"A senior citizens' chorus defies conventions and exceeds expectations with its interpretations of everyone from The Clash to Coldplay." ~ Mississauga Central Library.

Young @ Heart Plot Summary from IMDb. "Documents the true story of the final weeks of rehearsal for the Young at Heart Chorus in Northampton, MA, whose average age is 81, and many of whom must overcome health adversities to participate. Their music is unexpected, going against the stereotype of their age group, performing songs, for example, by James Brown, and Sonic Youth. Although they have toured Europe and sang for royalty, this account focuses on preparing new songs, not an easy endeavor, for a concert in their home town, which succeeds in spite of several real heart breaking events." ~ Written by Fox Searchlight.

Man on Wire Plot Summary from IMDb. "On August 7, 1974, Philippe Petit, a French wire walker, juggler, and street performer days shy of his 25th birthday, spent 45 minutes walking, dancing, kneeling, and lying on a wire he and friends strung between the rooftops of the Twin Towers. Uses contemporary interviews, archival footage, and recreations to tell the story of his previous walks between towers of Notre Dame and of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, his passions and friendships, and the details of the night before the walk: getting cable into the towers, hiding from guards, and mounting the wire. It ends with observations of the profound changes the walk's success brought to Philippe and those closest to him." ~ Written by jhailey@hotmail.com.

"Born-again Christian children are recruited and trained to become an active part of America's political future." ~ Mississauga Central Library.

Jesus Camp Plot Summary from IMDb. "Jesus Camp follows several young children as they prepare to attend a summer camp where the kids will get their daily dose of evangelical Christianity. Becky Fischer works at the camp, which is named Kids on Fire. Through interviews with Fischer, the children, and others, Jesus Camp illustrates the unswerving belief of the faithful. A housewife and homeschooling mother tells her son that creationism has all the answers. Footage from inside the camp shows young children weeping and wailing as they promise to stop their sinning. Child after child is driven to tears. Juxtapose these scenes with clips from a more moderate Christian radio host (who is appalled by such tactics), and Jesus Camp seems to pose a clear question: are these children being brainwashed?" ~ Written by Ken Miller.

Examining the Health Impacts of
Under- and Unemployed Highly-Skilled
Recent Immigrants to Canada

By Kathi Wilson, Ph.D.
Department of Geography, U of T at Mississauga

"The majority of immigrants are accepted for entry to Canada under the Skilled Worker Program in order to fill employment shortages in the labour market. Recent research has revealed that an increasing number of immigrants who gain entry under this programme face significant barriers to employment. As a result, many remain unemployed or accept employment below their field of education and training. However, the impacts such employment circumstances have on the health of recent highly-skilled immigrants have not yet been examined.

This presentation will discuss the results of a collaborative research project that explores the health impacts of under- and unemployment among skilled immigrants in Mississauga." ~ Info from The Royal Canadian Institute.

This FREE public one-hour lecture will be followed by a question period during which you can ask the scientist directly any questions that you may have.

The Royal Canadian Institute (RCI) for the Advancement of Science has provided these free public lectures since 1849. Webcasts are available at RCI Webcasts.

"On August 7, 1974, Philippe Petit, a French wire walker, juggler, and street performer days shy of his 25th birthday, spent 45 minutes walking, dancing, kneeling, and lying on a wire he and friends strung between the rooftops of the Twin Towers. Uses contemporary interviews, archival footage, and recreations to tell the story of his previous walks between towers of Notre Dame and of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, his passions and friendships, and the details of the night before the walk: getting cable into the towers, hiding from guards, and mounting the wire. It ends with observations of the profound changes the walk's success brought to Philippe and those closest to him." ~ Written by jhailey@hotmail.com.

"Life Beyond COPD" Information Fair
(Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)

Hosted by Strong Bodies - Healthy Minds

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD, Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease, COLD) Google image from http://images.medicinenet.com/images/illustrations/lungs.jpg

Wednesday, March 21, 2012 - 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a major cause of disability and death in Canada.

According to an Ontario Lung Association release, there are currently 780,000 Ontarians living with COPD and that number is expected to escalate to 1.2 million in the next 30 years.

According to ICES, there were 13,653 known cases of COPD in the Mississauga Halton Local Health Integration Network (MHLHIN) in 2006.

COPD is a progressive disease defined by an airflow limitation that is not fully reversible. Coping with a chronic illness which has a high impact on self perception, life changes and family burden can be overwhelming and leads to high levels of anxiety, depression and social isolation.

Strategies for coping with these issues are effective and are an integral part of COPD management. Group interventions can be helpful to provide opportunities to connect socially and emotionally with people who share experiences and to offer different ways to solve problems and manage their conditions.

The Strong Bodies - Healthy Minds project will be hosting a COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Diseases) event at the Westminster United Church at 4094 Westminster Road in Mississauga. This event will be observed under the caption “Life Beyond COPD”.

The aim of this event is to enhance the awareness of COPD and to highlight the importance of support groups for persons living with COPD.

This free event will be held on March 21, 2012 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. Persons living with COPD, families and care givers are all invited. Parking is free and venue is wheelchair accessible.

Please call Gumti or Linda at 905-276-6392 Ext. 225 to register for this event.

Thursday, March 22, 2012 - Starting at 6:30 p.m.

Apollo 18 (2011) Plot synopsis from IMDB. "Decades-old found footage from NASA's abandoned Apollo 18 mission, where two American astronauts were sent on a secret expedition, reveals the reason the U.S. has never returned to the moon.

In December, 1973, the crew of the previously-cancelled Apollo 18 mission is informed that the mission is a go, though it has now been deemed a top secret Department of Defense mission. Commander Nathan Walker (Lloyd Owen), Lieutenant Colonel John Grey (Ryan Robbins) and Captain Benjamin Anderson (Warren Christie) are launched towards the Moon to place detectors to alert the United States of any impending ICBM attacks from the USSR . . ." ~ Last updated by KrystelClaire.

Apollo 18 from Wikipedia. "Apollo 18 is a 2011 American science fiction horror film written by Brian Miller directed by Gonzalo López-Gallego and produced by Timur Bekmambetov and Ron Schmidt. The film's premise is that the officially canceled Apollo 18 mission was actually launched in December 1974 but never returned, and as a result the United States has never launched another expedition to the Moon . . ."

Midnight in Paris - Plot Summary from IMDb. "Gil and Inez travel to Paris as a tag-along vacation on her parents' business trip. Gil is a successful Hollywood writer but is struggling on his first novel. He falls in love with the city and thinks they should move there after they get married, but Inez does not share his romantic notions of the city or the idea that the 1920s was the golden age. When Inez goes off dancing with her friends, Gil takes a walk at midnight and discovers what could be the ultimate source of inspiration for writing. Gil's daily walks at midnight in Paris could take him closer to the heart of the city but further from the woman he's about to marry." ~ Written by napierslogs.

Thank You Volunteers Google image from https://36a88cebbd-custmedia.vresp.com/571da3a82a/thanks%20volunteers.jpg

Friday, March 30, 2012 - 2:00 - 3:00 p.m.

For a vast majority of seniors who volunteer, their community service helps define who they are. According to research conducted for the Home Instead Senior Care® network, nearly 100 percent of North American senior volunteers say that, when compared to other things they do in their lives, volunteering is important. One in five senior volunteers says it is the most important thing they do.

By logging on the website SaluteToSeniorService.com, individuals can nominate seniors who volunteer in their communities. We are looking for those senior volunteers who go above and beyond making a difference for others.

Any senior volunteer is welcome to attend the event. It will give us a chance to thank them personally as well as recognize some of the exceptional stories that have been submitted to the website.

Rango (2011 film) from Wikipedia.

Plot summary from IMDB. "Rango is a pet chameleon always on the lookout for action and adventure, except the fake kind, where he directs it and acts in it. After a car accident, he winds up in an old western town called Dirt. What this town needs the most is water, but they also need a hero and a sheriff. The thirsty Rango instantly takes on the role of both and selfishly agrees to take on the case of their missing water." ~ Written by napierslogs.

Plot synopsis from IMDB. "In the back of a small car, in a small aquarium, resides a small, unnamed chameleon (Johnny Depp). The only living creature in his 'environment,' Rango has fancied himself as an actor, with several inanimate object as his friends and fellow thespians. In his self-contained world, Rango's 'friends' tell him that even though he fancies himself a hero, he needs a challenge . . ." ~ Updated by uruseiranma.
