    Vox Animae
    January 21 at 7:30 p.m.

    The human voice. Each of us enters the word in possession of this one musical instrument. Its soothing sounds carry us from cradle to grave, celebrating or mourning the many moments along the way. This Stage Door offering explores both the ethereal nature of the unaccompanied solo voice and the unique collaboration of voice and guitar. Join CSI Music Faculty Serena Jenkins Clark and Michael Frew as they take us on a journey from cradle to grave, with glimpses of the agony and ecstasy experienced as the journey unfolds. Music to be performed includes Bach, Gounod, Rachmaninoff, Villa-Lobos, and more.  Tickets are $10/adults or $5/students of any are and are available at tickets.csi.edu, by calling 732-6288, or at the CSI Box Office.

    PlanetariumWorld Premiere at the Faulkner Planetarium
    The Herrett Center for Arts and Science has been chosen to be the world premiere site for the new fulldome show 'Edge of Darkness' in the Faulkner Planetarium, opening Jan. 2, 2016.

    Edge of Darkness is the latest fulldome movie produced by Evans and Sutherland, the world's leading creator of planetarium systems and programs to more than 1,300 theaters worldwide. This is the first time in its 20-year history that the Faulkner Planetarium has been chosen as the first theater to premiere a new film. Other planetariums and science centers won't receive the film until late January or February.

    Faulkner manager Rick Greenawald days the show features amazing scenes of places never before seen gathered by a trio of space missions that culminated with groundbreaking discoveries in 2015. It features a spectacular flight through the great cliffs on comet 67, a close look at the fascinating bright "lights" on Ceres, the largest object in the asteroid belt between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter, and the first ever close-ups of the dwarf binary planet Pluto/Charon and its moons.

    Edge of Darkness is narrated by Hayley Atwell, who plays Agent Carter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the ABC television series.

    What lies at the edge of earthbound telescopes' abilities to image the dark reaches of our celestial neighborhood? Comets, with surfaces as dark as coal, hold clues to the early makeup of the solar system. Asteroids hide secrets waiting to be revealed. Pluto and its retinue of moons hint at the myriad of Kuiper Belt objects that lie beyond. For much of history these celestial bodies have been mostly hidden from our sight; mere pixels in the camera's field of view. Now, thanks to a new generation of robotic explorers, we are exploring these denizens of the dark and learning much more about them.

     "We are extremely excited to be the very first planetarium in the world to show Edge of Darkness to public audiences," said Greenawald. "This shows our community what a great facility we have right here in our own neighborhood. Some of the very latest solar system exploration results are coming to the dome for us to experience in the unique environment of fulldome video."

    Edge of Darkness opens Saturday, January 2, showing at 2:30 and 7:00 p.m. After opening day the show will run at 7:00 p.m. Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays and at 2:30 p.m. Saturdays. Admission is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors age 60+ and $4 children ages 2 thru 17, children under the age of 2 are admitted free. For more information, please contact the Herrett Center at 208-732-6655 or on the web at www.csi.edu/herrett.

    CaloriesMake the Cut - 10 Ways to Shave 100 Calories a Day
    This article recently appeared in our SelectHealth Prevention Newsletter.
    If the mere idea of trying to lose weight fills you with dread, think of this number: 100.
    If you cut just 100 calories from your daily diet, you'll lose roughly 10 pounds in a year-without a big effort on your part. An added bonus: The small changes you make will likely be easy to stick with over time, which will help you lose even more weight.
    So how do you cut 100 calories? Here are 10 ideas:
    1. Order your favorite coffee drink with fat-free milk and sugar-free syrup
    2. Enjoy slow-churned, reduced-calorie ice cream instead of regular ice cream
    3. Have a diet soda instead of a regular one
    4. Skip the cheese on your burger, or order small fries instead large
    5. Split a single dessert with others
    6. Munch on raw veggies with salsa instead of eating chips
    7. Get your chocolate fix with a fun-sized candy bar instead of a full-sized one
    8. Make an open-faced sandwich with just one slice of bread instead of two
    9. Cook with a cooking spray instead of butter or margarine
    10. Don't clean your plate at each meal-leave a few bites
    Sounds pretty doable, don't you think?
