Active Minds Boulder Area Events May 2018

Monday, May 14, 2018, 11:00-noon
Join Active Minds as we look at new discoveries that have changed the thinking about Dinosaurs, one of the most fascinating creatures ever to inhabit our planet. From the beginnings of the Dinosaur era to the mass extinctions that eliminated their presence, we’ll look at the types, habits, and history of these amazing creatures. We’ll also look at how new technologies used to study dinosaurs have altered previous assumptions about the existence and demise these prehistoric giants.  This event is sponsored by The Carillon at Boulder Creek and Brookdale Senior Living.

China’s Economic Evolution
In the four decades since the death of Mao Zedong, China has moved rapidly from a stagnant communist economy to a bustling market-based one, albeit under single party rule. In 2010, China became the world’s largest exporter and in 2014 it became the world’s largest economy (based on GDP). Join Active Minds as we examine the rapid change in China’s economic stature and the effects it is having both domestically and internationally.
