Cyberspace isn't what it used to be. Leaks damage U.S. credibility. North Korea and Iran launch cyber attacks against American companies. Chinese cyber spies steal corporate and government data on a massive scale. Authoritarian regimes tighten control over the Internet. Terrorists exploit Twitter. Cyber crime grows.

Fidler is an expert in international law, cybersecurity, national security, counterinsurgency, and biosecurity. He has served as an international legal consultant to the World Bank and the U.S. Department of Defense’s Defense Science Board on bioterrorism, while maintaining his day-time job as a Visiting Fellow for Cybersecurity at the Council on Foreign Relations and is the James Louis Calamaras Professor of Law and a Senior Fellow at the Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research at Indiana University and an Associate Fellow with the Centre on Global Health Security at Chatham House.

The Yearning Curve: Exhibition by Grant Fuhst

February 17, 2016 12:00 pm

(Save to cal)

Finch Lane Gallery 54 Finch Lane, Salt Lake City, UT 84102, USA

The Yearning Curve is Grant Fuhst’s recent work that is largely concerned with the longing for a spiritual life and the harsh realities that often collide with such desires. This experimental style quickly evolved into a quest for deeper understanding. “We have advanced our ability to learn about the universe and our place in it, and yet we see the intransigence and violence of fundamentalist religious factions rising around the world, says Fuhst. “How do we find a place of harmony and enlightenment amid this chaos?” The figures, although monk-like and passive, speak to Fuhst about capturing that place of balance. Fuhst will talk about his work on Saturday, January 23 at 2:00 p.m. The exhibition runs through February 26.

It appeared in his first book of poems (press run: 500) and ended up in the hands of Cheryl Crow, who turned it into a song that won her two Grammies in 1994, "All I Wanna Do." ("All I wanna do is have a little fun , I've got a feel in' I'm not the only one..."







Stephen Kellogg and The South West North East @ The State Room

February 17, 2016 8:00 pm

(Save to cal)

The State Room 638 South State Street, Salt Lake City, UT 84111, USA

With Special guest Liz Longley

Stephen Kellogg was born on November 28, 1976. He grew up in Southern Connecticut and in 1997 began his musical career in Northampton, MA while interning for a local club. A few years later, he married his high school sweet heart and began a well-publicized affection for his role as husband and later, father to their four daughters. Over the last decade he has performed more than 1500 concerts in more than a dozen countries, both solo and with a band. In 2013 Kellogg gave a TEDx Talk about job satisfaction. Recently on a tour of Europe, SK (as fans often refer to him) made a detour to play the Middle East, Africa and an aircraft carrier for the Armed Forces. Upon returning to the USA, he started his annual lyric writing campaign to raise money and awareness in the fight against pediatric cancer. At first glance none of this has anything to do with his music, but Stephen Kellogg would argue, "it is the whole story. The music I make is a reflection of how I spend my time and what I care deeply about."

Embroidery is much more than a decorative tea cozy, handkerchief, or hand towel.

The Budos Band @ The State Room

February 18, 2016 8:00 pm

(Save to cal)

The State Room 638 South State Street, Salt Lake City, UT 84111, USA

With special guest The Weekenders

When it came time to title their new album, one decision was easy: "This isn't The Budos Band IV," proclaims drummer Brian Profilio. "This isn't just more of the same." The Budos Band embarked on an experimental journey since the release of The Budos Band III in 2010, seeking inspiration from sources far and wide.

While wizards use books of spells and alchemy to mix their masterful potions, the Budos employ heavy doses of continent-spanning psychedelic rock to beckon the occult and conjure the supernatural. Hence the title of the band's fourth album: Burnt Offering.
