I found her talk to be interesting and relevant. I was inspired to learn more and to really look at my own biases.

A stirring speech which urged young Americans to become engaged in their civic societies lest they deteriorate past the point of recognition. Although a bit dystopian, Sachs is sincere and adamant in his plea.

The Sioux Chef was excellent, his connection to his past and to re-developing the food of indigenous peoples belongs at Cornell. I wish we had more time to interact with him. He made us aware that we were "colonizers" which included us destroying the habitat of native Americans. We destroyed great forests and grasslands and the game that this great civilization depended upon. Excellent!

The email asking my opinion was most annoying.
I did not go last evening because I got jammed for time. The topic was very enticing, however.
I was also hoping to hear Steve Squyres next week, as advertised on the program for Princess Ida.
However it turned out to be nearly impossible to find details on CU Info, etc., and when I finally did hit upon a schedule, it listed someone else. ???
The emails you have been sending re changes to the schedule are totally frustrating -- the links do NOT list the speakers, and for me that makes them useless. The "change" advertised turned out to be for location, but that was not stated, so I totally missed it because I was still looking for the speaker list.
Unfortunately I have not had time to phone your office to get further information.
You need to make the schedule, with speakers, at the CENTER of your referred links.
I did send a complaint to calendar events, but the response said I had to deal with Summer Sessions, to which I have had so much trouble accessing that I have not had time to try again.
What the heck does MEH mean??? I cannot click red or green because I did not hear last night's lecture and cannot vote.
But it is annoying in the extreme to have no "Submit" button. I'll click blue and hope you get this complaint.

This is the first time that I attend it. Was a bit disappointed. It was very formal, too general, without any dynamics. The audience was barely involved. I don't think it was debate at all. The invented panelists just delivered their speeches more or less and that's it.
I attended it and hoped to hear from ambassador Ross about his rich inside experience mainly in the Israel-Palestinian negotiations, to hear where the difficulties are.

I think it could be better to limit time reserved for speeches and give more time for questions and answers, to encourage real debate.

Great presentation on leadership. Too bad more people didn't attend.
