SimonSimon Sinek Speaks to CSI Students
Simon Sinek is participating in a broadcast event sponsored by the CSI chapter of The National Society of Leadership and Success. The event will be on Tuesday, November 8th at 5:00 p.m. in the Taylor Building rm. 276, and is free to all students, staff and faculty.

Simon Sinek is a New York Times best-selling author, motivational speaker and marketing consultant. A trained ethnographer, Sinek studies leaders and organizational culture. Sinek is fascinated by the leaders and companies that have the capacity to inspire, and has discovered remarkable patterns about how they think, act and communicate. Sinek is best known for popularizing these ideas in his first Ted Talk, which is the third most watched talk of all time on TED.com. Sinek has had the honor of sharing his ideas at the United Nations, the United States Congress, and with an array of leaders and organizations, including: Disney, JetBlue, MARS, SAP, Pfizer, NBC and with the senior leadership of the United States Air Force, Marine Corps, Army and Navy, as well as Special Forces agencies.

This is the fourth installment of the 2017-2018 multi-speaker broadcast series sponsored by the Society. The Society's Speaker Broadcast series, which reaches more than 580 college campuses each month during the academic year, is designed to support The National Society of Leadership and Success's overall mission of Building Leaders Who Make a Better World.

AOTArts on Tour Presents "The Quebe Sisters"

There are still 100 tickets left for the next performance of the Arts on Tour season "The Quebe Sisters", which will take place in the CSI Fine Arts Auditorium on Wednesday, November 8, at 7:30 p.m.  Tickets are $17 for adults and $10 for students high school & under and are available at tickets.csi.edu, at the CSI Box Office, or by calling 732-6288.
When triple-threat fiddle champions Grace, Sophia, and Hulda Quebe blend their voices, their tight three-part harmony is reminiscent of the Andrews Sisters. The trio performs a refreshing blend of swing, vintage country, bluegrass, jazz standards, and Texas-style fiddling.  The sisters were ages 7, 10 and 12 in 1998 when they attended their first local fiddle competition and decided fiddling was what they wanted to do. Within a few years they were winning state and national championships, and soon they were sharing stages with American music legends. Today, after more than a decade of travelling the U.S. and the world, the sisters are a smokin' hot young adult Americana band, pros in a variety of genres, and count many famous musicians among their biggest boosters.  Along with headlining their own shows to ever-growing audiences, they've shared stages with American music legends like Willie Nelson, George Strait, Merle Haggard, Ricky Skaggs, Ray Price, Connie Smith, Marty Stuart, The Gatlin Brothers, Ray Benson, Asleep at the Wheel, Riders in the Sky and many others.  "Give them your undivided attention, and if you're not already, you too, will become a fan."
Follow-up performances of the Arts on Tour season include I Love  a Piano (February 16), Kings of Dance (March 17), Catapult (March 28), and Piano Chameleons (April 10).

StageDoorCSI Stage Door Series Presents "Untitled"

The CSI Stage Door Series will present "untitled.", a show dedicated to art inspiring art, on November 16. The performance will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the CSI Fine Arts Auditorium. Tickets are $10 for adults or $5 for students and will be available at the CSI Box Office, by calling 732-6288, at the door, or by going online to http://tickets.csi.edu.

In untitled., local artist and retired CSI art professor Mike Youngman shares a retrospective of his work spanning over two decades. Mike's prolific and multi-disciplinary portfolio includes figures, abstract, print-making, wax resist, wet on wet, murals, and even photo-copied faces. Mike's visual creations have been given to five different artists, musicians, and poets whose assignment is to let the visual work inspire them to sounds and words to be infused into the visual presentation of Mike's art. During the show, Mike's works, in both whole and detailed views, will be projected onto various surfaces and objects while we see and hear where the muse of art, song, and words have taken our artists.

The CSI Stage Door Series, intimate arts experiences where both performers and audience members are on the stage itself, are designed to be thought-provoking and a little out of the ordinary in different ways - whether it's because of the intimate setting, the material performed, the way they are presented, or the collaborations involved. Follow up productions include Soiled Doves, Inside Inspirata, TBD: To Be Devised featuring Flying Bobcat Theater, and Sentences.

For more information, contact the CSI Fine Arts Center at 732-6788.

The numbers don't lie-1 in 3 American adults has prediabetes.

With a little exercise and a change in diet, it often can be reversed. Let's face it, there are millions of reasons why we don't find the time to make healthy lifestyle choices. Kids, jobs, cat videos on the Internet - we're busy. But whatever your reason, prediabetes is real. So find out if you have prediabetes by taking the test now while watching cute little puppies at play. I promise, it won't hurt a bit!
