    Let's Talk Finance

     Heimbold Visual Arts Center 208
      -

    The Let’s Talk Finance Workshop is for students only. This is a workshop for those who want to learn how to live the life they dream of living off of their current salary.

    This workshop is facilitated by Karen Y. Williams, Assistant Director for Public Services, City of Houston Municipal Courts.

    Many people believe that financial freedom is too difficult to attain and therefore, they don’t even try.  Financial freedom is very much attainable—you just need a plan and the right tools to make it happen.   Karen’s desire and motivation is that everyone be able to live the financial lifestyle they desire for themselves.  

    In her own words, Karen says, "I want to give people, who make their money the ordinary way, the tips and tools to become wealthy with whatever they make because it is possible and it can be done."

    Her motto is "Ordinary Income, Extraordinary Lifestyle!"

    Karen earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and Mass Communications from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a Master’s Degree from Clark Atlanta University. Karen received her Certified Financial Planning certification at Rice University in 2012, although she’s been teaching about personal finance since her early adulthood.  Her personal passion is teaching financial literacy to communities where the information is needed most.

    For more information about Karen and her work, visit her website: http://www.thedividenddiva.com/

    The Invisible Bridge The Fall of Nixon and the Rise of Reagan

     Titsworth Marjorie Leff Miller ’53 Lecture Hall
      -

    Rick Perlstein discusses The Invisible Bridge: The Fall of Nixon and the Rise of Reagan

    From the bestselling author of Nixonland: a dazzling portrait of America on the verge of a nervous breakdown in the tumultuous political and economic times of the 1970s. In January of 1973 Richard Nixon announced the end of the Vietnam War and prepared for a triumphant second term—until televised Watergate hearings revealed his White House as little better than a mafia den. The next president declared upon Nixon’s resignation "our long national nightmare is over"—but then congressional investigators exposed the CIA for assassinating foreign leaders. The collapse of the South Vietnamese government rendered moot the sacrifice of some 58,000 American lives. The economy was in tatters. And as Americans began thinking about their nation in a new way—as one more nation among nations, no more providential than any other—the pundits declared that from now on successful politicians would be the ones who honored this chastened new national mood. Ronald Reagan never got the message. Reagan was inventing the new conservative political culture we know now, in which a vision of patriotism rooted in a sense of American limits was derailed in America’s Bicentennial year by the rise of the smiling politician from Hollywood. Against a backdrop of melodramas from the Arab oil embargo to Patty Hearst to the near-bankruptcy of America’s greatest city, Rick Perlstein asks the question: what does it mean to believe in America? To wave a flag—or to reject the glibness of the flag wavers?
