On Tuesday, Mar. 31 at 1:15 PM the Men’s Club will present a special lecture by David Silber, Ph.D. entitled “Psychology: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly”. The study and practice of Psychology, over the past 120 years, has made some astonishing advances in understanding human behavior. However, some enormous errors have been made and, in some instances, have remained rooted in the culture and awareness of people. For example, testing for intellectual abilities has proved to be an invaluable tool but also led to various misunderstandings with grave consequences. Mental health pronouncements have been helpful and hurtful, in many areas. Some of these, and perhaps others, will be reviewed and discussed.

On Thursday, May 28 – Tour of Nationals Park: Because the last tour of Nationals Park a few years ago was such a success, we are planning another one this season. Larry Katz has tentatively booked our same guide, Maria, to take us around. She is available on Thursday, May 28, when the Nationals will be out of town. The tour, which lasts at least 90 minutes, will include visits to the press box, luxury suites, the Nationals’ dugout, the bullpen where you may throw some pitches, the visiting clubhouse, exhibits of past teams and players, and much more. The Nationals have not yet set this year’s charge for private tours, but it should come out to $20-25 per person if we get at least 20 participants. More information to follow. If you are interested or have any questions, please contact Larry Katz, firstname.lastname@example.org.
