August 2011 Issue of Kaizen

Friday, September 16th, 2011

In our latest issue of Kaizen we feature an interview with Francesco Clark, founder and CEO of Clark’s Botanicals. At age 24, he became paralyzed from the neck down after a swimming pool accident. Some physicians thought he would never move or breathe without assistance again. But with great effort over several years, Mr. Clark made strong progress and, given his physical-therapy experiences, developed an award-winning line of skin-care products that became Clark’s Botanicals, now sold in Europe, Asia, and the United States.

Also featured in Kaizen are: student essay contest winners Nicole Schnack, Jake Maliszewski, and William Newkirk; High School Entrepreneur Day, Professor Jules Gleicher’s new course, and guest speaker Dr. Al Gini.

A PDF version of Kaizen is available here. We will soon post separately the full interview with Mr.Francesco Clark.

If you would like to receive a complimentary issue of the print version of Kaizen, please email your name and postal address to CEE [at] Rockford.edu.

“Only A God Can Save Us” Screening and Panel Discussion

Thursday, February 24th, 2011
Martin Heidegger is considered by many to be the most profound thinker of the 20th century, and his philosophy continues to be influential.
.
In May of 1933, Heidegger joined the Nazi Party and became the first Nazi Rector of a German university.
.
Heidegger’s final words of despair in a famous Der Spiegel interview make it clear that he had no faith in democracy: “Only a God can save us.”
.
The film Only A God Can Save Us is a critical view of Heidegger’s so-called “flirtation” with Nazism and examines the elements of his philosophy which may have led him to support the National Socialist revolution.
.
Come watch highlights from the two-hour documentary film about this controversial philosopher and stay for a discussion panel featuring Jeffrey Van Davis, the film’s director, and Rockford University faculty members Stephen Hicks (Philosophy), David Sytsma (History), and Jules Gleicher (Political Science).

Friday, March 4 from 3-5 p.m. in the CEE office in Burpee
