1. Three programs you may find interesting:

* As you are aware, we are still plagued by employment issues, economic and ecologic uncertainties and the uncertainty of our future and the future of generations to come.

The International Society of Ecology and Culture (http://isec.org.uk) has a new film, “The Economics of Happiness” premiering across the globe starting this year at major institutes.

Come see this engrossing program here in Bucks County, that sheds light on major global and US issues as it ties our happiness (or lack of) to ways of life that can be altered to improve ourselves and the lives of others. You will not be disappointed.

* One year after the Healthcare Bill (The Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act, called by some as “Obamacare”), ) was signed into Law in March 2010, Healthcare issues are very much alive as PPACA undergoes legal scrutinies and Congressional processes.

Come and actively participate in this lively but civil discussion on this topic and how it relates to our economy, with Nationally recognized Healthcare professional Dr. Walter Tsou (MD, MPH) Adjunct Professor of Health Policy at Univ. of PA and past President of the American Public Health Association.  Dr. Tsou has testified before Congress on several occasions.

7. Poverty Simulation
 
A Poverty Simulation is a unique tool that the Bucks County Opportunity Council (BCOC) uses to promote a greater understanding of poverty and to educate participants about the day to day realities of life with a shortage of money and an abundance of stress.
 
 During a simulation, participants role-play the lives of low-income families – from single parents trying to care for their children to senior citizens trying to maintain their self sufficiency on Social Security. The task of each family is to provide food, shelter and other basic necessities during the simulation while interacting with various community resources role-played by BCOC staffers.
 
Although it uses “play” money and other props, fictional scenarios, and time limits, the Poverty Simulation is not a game. It is a simulation tool that enables participants to view poverty from different angles in an experiential setting. It can become a very emotional experience.
Poverty Simulations take approximately 3 hours.   This includes orientation, the four-15 minute weeks, and a debriefing period at the end of the simulation.
 
The Poverty Simulation is being sponsored by FLOC/LBCCC on Sat., Mar. 26, 2011, from 8:30 AM to Noon at  Yardley United Methodist Church.  It will be free to participants and will include refreshments.
