  • The Last Pig: film screening, audience/panel discussion with director, farmer and more today (April 19) at 7 p.m.
    - Posted on April 19, 2018
    • I am excited to be moderating an incredible panel of experts (see below) following the screening of the 52-minute documentary The Last Pig on Thursday, April 19 from 7 to 10 p.m. in the BTC Auditorium.

      The Last Pig” (2017, www.thelastpig.com) is a non-graphic, lyrical meditation on what it means to be a sentient creature with the power to kill. Immersive, experiential, with sparse inner reflections, the film follows a pig farmer through his crisis of faith in his final season of slaughtering pigs. It earned director Allison Argo the Zelda Penzel “Giving Voice to the Voiceless” award at the 2017 Hamptons International Film Festival.

      Please don’t miss this film and the panel and audience discussion to follow with Allison Argo, the award-winning director of “The Last Pig,” the farmer Bob Comis, who now grows vegetables in Schoharie County, and Kathy Stevens, director of the Catskill Animal Sanctuary, where many of Bob’s animals found new lives!

      This is such a vital topic especially in light of the USDA proposal to relax restrictions on high speed pig slaughter.

      Our event is co-sponsored by the Cultural Affairs Program and the Animal Outreach Club, my last as co-adviser. We are honored to bring this caliber of professionals and visionaries to our campus and the evening promises not to disappoint.

      Free and open to the public. Come one, come all and meet these extraordinary movers and shakers, and be inspired to help make the change we need to see.

      Thank you, Maria Zemantauski, coordinator of Cultural Affairs, for your tireless efforts in making this evening possible. Another superb evening at Hudson Valley Community College will take place in large part to your efforts.

      For more information, contact Dr. Val Waldin at v.waldin@hvcc.edu or Maria Z. at m.zemantauski@hvcc.edu.

  • Who the F**k Is That Guy: The Fabulous Life of Michael Alago at 7 p.m. today (April 12)
    - Posted on April 12, 2018
    • Michael Alago brings “Who the F**k Is That Guy: The Fabulous Life of Michael Alago” to Hudson Valley. The documentary traces the amazing career of a Puerto Rican kid from Brooklyn who was booking music for the Ritz in 1980s New York at 19. By 24, he was an A&R exec at Elektra when he signed an unknown California band called Metallica. The rest, as they say, is history. Alago’s passion was music, all types, and he worked with Cyndi Lauper, John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten), Tracy Chapman and the late jazz great, Nina Simone. Always outspoken, energetic and openly gay, Alago (barely) survived the rock ‘n roll lifestyle and left the record industry in 2004. He’s still a fixture on the NYC music scene, but now focuses on other passions: literature and photography. He’s published a book of poetry and two volumes of a photobook series, “Rough Gods.” Alago talks and answer questions following the film (2017, 85 min). It is not recommended for young audiences.

      This event will take place in the BTC Auditorium on
      Thursday, April 12 at 7 p.m.
      It is free and open to the public.

      Presented by the Cultural Affairs Program.

  • Unconventional green tips from the Sustainability Committee
    - Posted on April 10, 2018
    • With Earth Day coming up on April 22, the Environmental Sustainability Committee would like to share a few unconventional green tips that you can use to make a difference!

      • Freeze the ends of veggies: Why? You can then simmer them once a month or once every few months to make your own wholesome vegetable stock. Then compost the remainders.
      • Wash your ziplock bags… and when they are dead, cut off the zip and recycle the plastic bag with any local soft plastic recycling. Why? Food storage has moved to plastic which is one of the biggest burdens on our waste stream and on our planet. You can recycle these at any grocery store over 30,000 square feet in size.
      • Add an inch to your grass length.Why? Longer grass can retain moisture and remain healthier over time, and more resilient in drought conditions. Even better, cut with a mower that leaves the trimmings on the lawn. You may have to “thatch” (comb out some excess clippings to avoid rot) every couple of years, but your yard will be healthier for it.
      • Use a refillable coffee pod filter or, better, switch to an electric teakettle and a French Press.Why? Coffee pods create a lot of waste. A refillable means avoiding that waste, and you can still choose the flavors you like. A French press does even better, as you can change the strength (some days we need COFFEE and some we need only coffee). An electric tea kettle is safest, and uses electricity which, over time, will become more and more from renewable energy production.

  • Justus Simon
    - Posted on April 9, 2018

      Simon was in his first semester of his freshman season at Hudson Valley Community College, where he was a member of the men’s basketball team, playing in 11 games and averaging 5.9 points per game. He also made the President’s List in his first semester as a business administration major.

      Please keep the Simon family in your thoughts during this difficult time.

  • Dental Hygiene Community Support
    - Posted on April 4, 2018
    • Liza Orsini, Roseanne Henley, Candace Vergare, Samantha Bell, Jeffery Mc Minn, Karen Dujack

      The Dental Hygiene Department at Hudson Valley Community College had a very busy week prior to Spring Break.

      On Wednesday,, March 21, faculty and students volunteered to prepare meals for the homeless at Joseph’s House and Homeless Shelter in Troy, as well as provide Oral Self Care for the more than 40 residents in attendance. This was the departments second trip to the shelter to provide dinner and educational services this year

      On Friday and Saturday, March 23-24, faculty and students volunteered at the annual Journey Through The Body Event held at Crossgates Mall. This event provides the community with a unique educational experience with numerous inflatable and walk-through models of the body’s various systems, including the brain, lungs and skeletal systems. Our faculty and students were able to educate those in attendance on the dangers of hidden sugars in common beverages, nutritionally good dental foods, as well as proper brushing technique on the “huge” mouth model and various puppets.

      Thank you to my fellow faculty and students for making both programs a success!

  • Serving in the community over Spring Break
    - Posted on April 4, 2018
    • On March 28 and 29 a handful of Hudson Valley students, as well as some faculty and staff, participated in a local service opportunity with the South End Children’s Café.

      The Café, which opened in 2015, focuses on serving the youth and families of the South End. The kids enrolled in the program receive homework help and after school enrichment programs on a daily basis. These services are provided by volunteers and as part of the service over spring break initiative, Hudson Valley students were able to offer their time and talents.

      After homework and some fun, both the kids and their families sit down to a healthy meal provided by the Café. Soon after dinner, the day comes to a close and the kids depart; 15 of the 25 youth who benefit from the South End Children’s Café are currently homeless. The work of the South End Children’s Café, their volunteers and founder, Traci Kellar, is clearly meeting a critical need in the community.

      Many thanks to the students, faculty and staff who signed up to volunteer over the two days. It was great to serve alongside you!

      This service initiative was organized by the Campus Ministry and supported by Student Activities. May this be the start of a new spring break tradition!

  • Cartoonist Alison Bechdel on campus Friday, March 23
    - Posted on March 22, 2018
    • Watch Out for Alison Bechdel
      Friday, March 23 at 11 a.m.
      Bulmer Telecommunications Center Auditorium

      Alison Bechdel, creator of the comic strip “Dykes to Watch Out For” (1983-2008), one of the earliest portrayals of lesbians in popular culture, first earned critical and commercial success in 2006 with “Fun Home.” That graphic memoir was adapted for Broadway and won the 2015 Tony Award for Best Musical. A second book, “Are You My Mother?,” was published in 2012. Bechdel’s direct social commentary and drawings have reached a wide and disparate audience of readers, now fans, and earned the Oberlin College graduate a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship, aka “Genius Award,” in 2014. DTWOF was resurrected briefly in 2016, allowing Bechdel’s characters to react to the outcome of the Presidential election, and single strips now appear when “inspiration strikes” the artist.

      A Q&A session and book signing follow Bechdel’s talk. This event is co-sponsored by the Cultural Affairs Program and the English, Foreign Languages and English as a Second Language Department.

      All are welcome to attend.
