Hello everyone! Sorry about the lack of minutes lately but with a
meeting of about 15 minutes last week I didn't have much to work
~The walk for animals is on April 30th. We will be walking, not volunteering. If you are interested in helping Lins has the pledge forms.
~The constitution changes and additions will soon be posted to the website. If you have a problem with any of them please contact Lins.
~We will be having another event on Tuesday April 12th. It will be held in our normal meeting place and will run from 8-12 pm.
~We will be doing the PA awards next week. We need a big turnout for this so come if you can.
~We will be doing stations on the 27th. If you are planning on having one please email me with your idea or bring it to PA next week (so we don't have doubles). If you will be going to Margaret Cho that night please pick something you don't have to be there to run.
~Student government now offers online voting. If you want to become a senator the packets will be available soon. (see Lina for more information).
~Anne would like to start a book club. If anyone wants to join please talk to her at PA or the party next week.
The topic was Science Vs. Magic or Science and Magic depending how you look at it. We had some pretty good discussion on this one. ~If your interested in quantum physics there is a great movie called "What the Bleep Do We Know".
~Things now explained by science used to be considered magic. (Ex. Eclipses)
~Science is unable to explain magic, but that may be due to lack of knowledge or technology.
~Some people believe that science and magic are fundamentally different even if they can work together.
~We discussed chaos theory and entropy and how that effects us and the world.
~Nearly anything can be called a science if it follows a certain format so your view depends largely on what you consider science to be.
~No one views magic and science by the same definition.
~Some believe that the purpose of science is to disprove things that were once considered magical.
~Science and magic can cancel each other out.
Then we went to break and chaos ensued afterwards. Becky gave us an interesting lesson on "Indian leg wrestling". Hope to see you all at the party and the meeting next week.
