PEANUT BUTTER CLUB: Presents the PBS video “Acting Funny” on Friday, August 29, at noon in Redfield Auditorium, 45 Water Street, Woods Hole.

They’re a fascinating contrast to Tina Fey, who explains her measured, highly prepared approach. The episode also highlights the all-time #1 Emmy winner for comedy acting Cloris Leachman. Sponsored by the WHOI Information Office. Coffee, tea, and cookies served. Donations accepted.

“SCIENCE MADE PUBLIC” LECTURE SERIES:
On Tuesday, August 26, at 3:00 p.m., the WHOI “Science Made Public” series will host a presentation by marine biologist Susan Mills, titled “Life in an Earthquake Zone.” Deep-sea hydrothermal vent sites host dense communities of animals in a food web dependent upon chemical energy from the Earth. These sites experience frequent disturbances, like volcanic eruptions, that may wipe out entire communities. Such an event occurred on the East Pacific Rise in 2006, when an area of several kilometers was paved over with lava during an eruption. How does life return to sites after such an event? Learn how this site was recolonized by distant populations of animals and how the transformation of this site has added to our understanding of how these communities persist in this unstable environment. The “Science Made Public” talks are free and open to the public. Redfield Auditorium is located at 45 Water Street in Woods Hole. For more information, call (508) 289-2700 or visit http://www.whoi.edu/ScienceMadePublic/.

WOODS HOLE HISTORICAL MUSEUM: The museum is open Tuesday – Saturday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. for the season. For more information, please call (508) 548-7270.
