EU2017-KFitzgerald-179X150The Baby & the Bathwater
An Original Film by Katherine Fitzgerald

When: Saturday, August 19, 2017, 7:30 pm
Where: Main Canyon Ballroom

At the EU2014 Conference, various senior scientists and researchers participated in a film project to share their recollections of Immanuel Velikovsky. This included Bill Mullen, Dwardu Cardona (dec.), Warner Sizemore (dec.), C.J. Ransom, Bruce Mainwaring, Dave Talbott, and Wal Thornhill. Directed by Katherine Fitzgerald, and initially intended as an archival record for posterity, the scope of the project broadened and ultimately became the focus of Katherine’s MA thesis at the University of Staffordshire. In the words of those who knew Velikovsky personally, The Baby & the Bathwater sheds a fascinating light on one of the most controversial scientific figures of the 20th century and is a work in progress, pending further funding. The film debuted in the EU2016 Breakout Room to a standing-room-only crowd. At EU2017, Katherine will present the film in the Main Hall prior to the Velikovsky Day Recollections evening panel.

Katherine Fitzgerald is an award-winning short filmmaker and Gemini and DGC award winning sound editor. Her short film Bread & Kisses (2010) screened at over 20 international film festivals, including the Cannes Film Festival in 2011 as part of the National Film Board of Canada’s program Coups de Coeur – Crazy Canucks. In 2014, Katherine was an Electric Universe Conference Scholar and has attended every conference since. Having an interest in bringing the EU paradigm to a wider audience, she produced and directed a short documentary about Immanuel Velikovsky, The Baby & the Bathwater (2015). Katherine is currently working on a short, spoken word/performance film, Paradigm Shift, with fellow Canadian, EU conference attendee, and Breakout Room presenter, Ghada Chehade. Production is planned for 2018.

Located in the Conference Center, First Floor

Bring a small item to swap.The idea is to meet new friends and reconnect with old ones.  Conference attendees are encouraged to bring something to swap and then are welcome to pick what they like from the swap table.  These items can be funny, or EU related, or something from your hometown or state.  Whatever it is, it should be meaningful to you in some way.  Add a tag with your name, if you wish. The swap will start at the Breakout Room Open House and then continue throughout the conference.  As you would expect, we will have the final say about the appropriateness of a swap item.  Photo credit: EU2016 Banquet, Ben Ged Low.

Where: Canyon Ballrooms A-B-C

Come build an electrical model of the Solar System with Dr. Michael Clarage of the SAFIRE team. Using your hands, lots of wire, and a signal generator, you will help build a scale model of the Solar System. This has never been done before. Guaranteed plenty of mistakes but lots of fun.

Each planet transforms solar energy differently. From the X-Ray emissions of Jupiter’s poles to the lightning storms on Neptune, each planet is its own transformer of solar energy. Altogether, what does the whole Solar System look like from an electrical point of view? We will build a Solar System using Bode’s Law and Kepler’s Laws. We will put an oscillating signal in the center to mimic the Sun’s 22-year sunspot cycle, and we will measure the electrical response from each planet’s orbit.

For more background see Dr. Clarage’s article “The Solar System as Electrical Transformer” plus two Space news videos on the experiment: Solar System as an Electrical Transformer | Space News and  A New Way of Seeing the Solar System | Space News
