Ukeleles for Peace: Music Bringing Israeli and Arab Youth Together

Ukeleles for Peace: Music Bringing Israeli and Arab Youth Together

The sweet strumming of the ukulele invokes a feeling of island bliss. But one minute of listening to The United Kingdom Ukulele Orchestra will make you realize this isn’t flip-flops music. Punk rock, rock and roll, pop music and oldies – you name it, this octet will play it on their ukuleles. Peter Moss and all the musicians of the United Kingdom Ukulele Orchestra are delighted to be supporters of the children’s project in Israel “Ukeleles for Peace,” which was founded and realized by the music lecturer Paul Moore several years ago together with both Israeli and Palestinian children. A part of the wages of the orchestra will be donated every evening to this award winning reconciliation project, in which kids with the help of music and inexpensive musical instruments discover, together with parents and schools, a way forward throughout this war-torn region.

Subsistence and Climate Change

Subsistence and Climate Change

The changing climate is shifting seasons and wildlife habitat in Alaska, altering the plants, trees and berries on the landscape, and creating unfamiliar patterns in the ocean, with the location and abundance of fish and marine mammals. We’ll talk about how these changes are affecting the subsistence way of life practiced by Alaska Natives, whose traditions developed in a more stable ecosystem.

Stargazing

Stargazing

One of the best things about winter in Alaska is the inky black sky away from the city with a dome of stars so deep and bright it gives you a sense of vertigo. For some folks, those amazing starscapes are the best reason to get into the backcountry, or just away from town. The night sky is infinitely interesting, and, like any experience in nature, knowledge only makes the experience deeper. On the next Outdoor Explorer, we’re going to learn about the stars and watching them as an outdoor Alaskan activity.

Sifting Through The Goods: Ski Swaps

Ski swap time is upon us. It’s become a season in Anchorage, when used gear comes out of the garage and goes on sale in these giant rummage sales, which can be as competitive as a Walmart on Thanksgiving. But is this really a good way to get quality gear?
