  • Clinical Research Volunteers Needed

    Thursday, July 11, 2019

    Dr. Shafic Sraj is seeking older adult with unrestricted hand use for a research study. Volunteers will be asked to perform a short series of manual strength tests, including grip, key pinch, and three point pinch, in both hands. The test will take only 5 to 10 minutes. Medical students and pre-medical undgraduates will be at OLLI on Mondays, July 15-29 at 2:30 p.m., and Tuesdays and Fridays, July 16-30 at 11:30 a.m. to conduct the tests in classroom B. If you’re interested in volunteering, simply stop in. Pre-registration is not required.

  • Microsoft eBooks and the Problem with DRM

    Wednesday, July 10, 2019

    You may have heard that Microsoft is shuttering its eBook store. If you're like most people, you didn't even know Microsoft SOLD eBooks. This was a venture started in 2017 that pretty much failed out of the gate, since you could only access it from the MS Edge web browser. If you by some strange chance purchased an eBook from the Microsoft store, you will be refunded the complete price you paid for the books, because Microsoft will be removing those books from the libraries of the purchasers.

  • Using your Tablet or Laptop to View Class Handouts

    Wednesday, July 3, 2019

    We would like to switch to electronic handouts for class materials. If you do not have an electronic device, or a printer from which you can print out on your own, you can request a printed handout from the OLLI office—just let us know you need printed handouts and we will attempt to keep track and have these printed for you prior to class.
