North County Chapter
Nov. 7—Our guest, Professor William Chandler, will discuss “Is the European Union in Crisis". He will focus on recent challenges facing the EU, starting with a brief historical context and a broad view of what the EU looks like as a supra-national system. He will also highlight more recent challenges facing the EU, including, but not restricted to, Brexit. By November 7th we should know whether a "No-Deal Brexit" has happened or not.
Professor Chandler is Professor Emeritus in political science with a specialization in U.S. and European institutions.

Nov. 14—Our guest, Professor Sharon Rose, will discuss “The Recent History of Ethiopia and Eritrea”, home to about 80 distinct ethnic groups and languages as well as several different religions. Over the past century and a half, Ethiopia has moved from a feudal empire through communism to the current situation in which Eritrea is a separate nation, while Ethiopia is divided into ethnically-based states with some degree of autonomy.
Professor Rose is Director of the Heritage Language Program and a Co-Director of the International Institute at UCSD.
Please advise Cy Chadley, email@example.com by November 10 if you would like to attend the RTL.
Nov. 21—Our guest, Mr. Don Kent, President & CEO of the Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute, will present "Challenges and Changes: Meeting Global Demand for Fish Protein While Protecting the Oceans". Aquaculture now provides 50% of human seafood and is supplanting hunter-gatherer fishermen. Can science and market economics protect marine species while providing globally needed protein through fisheries management and ocean fish farming?
Mr. Kent is a member of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Marine Fisheries Advisory Committee, and an adjunct professor at SDSU and USD.
