1) (ILEAD LECTURE EVENT) Kosovo Today:  Emerging from the Rubble


The locations for the lecture for ILEAD on April 12 and 22 are reversed!

 April 12  Dean Pineles is from 10 AM to Noon  BUT in Filene Auditorium in Moore Hall off of Maynard Street in Hanover

 April 22 Charles Palmer  2:30 PM to 4:30 PM  in the Life Sciences Building Room 100


The war in Kosovo in 1998-99 and Kosovo’s declaration of independence from Serbia in 2008 were headline events in their day. Recently, Kosovo has been back in the headlines as one of the justifications for Russia’s recent annexation of Crimea. So what do we need to know about Kosovo? This special ILEAD lecture will be presented by Dean Pineles, a retired Vermont trial judge who worked as an international criminal judge with the European Union in Kosovo from 2011-13. He will describe important historical, cultural and demographic features of this tiny

troubled country in the Balkans, including the war and its aftermath. This will serve as the backdrop for a discussion of several of his high profile criminal cases, including a war crimes case and an international human organ trafficking case. He will also discuss the legacy of Kosovo in light of the geopolitical chess game in Ukraine.


Dean Pineles is a graduate of Brown University, Boston University Law School, and Harvard’s Kennedy School. Prior to his 21 years of service as a Vermont trial judge, Dean also served as

legal counsel to Governor Richard Snelling, as Commissioner of the Vermont Department of Labor and Industry, as Deputy Commissioner of the Vermont Department of Health, and as an Assistant Attorney General. He took on numerous international Rule of Law assignments in Russia, Kazakhstan, and Georgia. From 2011-2013, Dean spent 28 months as an international criminal judge in Kosovo, dealing with a variety of high profile cases that included war crimes,

organized crime, judicial corruption, and illegal organ trafficking. He has been a resident of Stowe since 1974, and retired from the Vermont bench in 2005.



Admission is $10. This event will be held in Life Sciences Center, Room 100 at Dartmouth College on April 12th from 10 AM to 12 PM.

2) (ILEAD LECTURE EVENT) An(other) Inconvenient Truth:  The Collision of Security and Privacy in the Digital Age



In the revolutionary digital age in which we live, computers and rapidly expanding internet systems amplify human interaction and experience in amazing ways. While this constant flow of new technology is impressive, even approaching indispensable, it also presents risks. In this special lecture, a private sector computer security researcher, who also teaches at Dartmouth,

will explore how these risks have evolved to threaten critical infrastructures and individuals around the world.


Dr. Charles C. Palmer is Chief Technology Officer for Security and Privacy for IBM Research where he focuses on special projects relating to security and privacy, unique customer challenges, and national security issues. He is also an Adjunct Professor of Computer Science at Dartmouth College where he teaches Security and Privacy and other courses. Prior to taking on these roles, he led the Security and Privacy departments at IBM’s Thomas J. Watson Research Center for several years, where he also founded IBM’s ethical hacking lab.



Admission is $10.  This event will be held at Dartmouth College, Moore Hall–Filene Auditorium on April 22nd from 2:30 to 4:30 PM.

Saturday, April 19, 2014

Multi-platinum selling recording artist and seven time GRAMMY nominee, Joan Osborne will perform at Lebanon Opera House on Saturday, April 19, 2014. Seats for the 7:30 pm show are $40 or $30. Tickets can be purchased at the Lebanon Opera House Box Office in person or via phone 603-448-0400, tickets can also be purchased online at www.lebanonoperahouse.org.


Joan Osborne is set to release her eighth studio recording Love and Hate on April 8, 2014. The poignant 12-song collection, which weaves together strands of American roots music, poetic lyrics and impassioned vocals, will be released via Entertainment One (eOne) where Osborne recently signed a new, worldwide record deal. In support of the album Osborne will embark on an extensive U.S. tour including stops in New York City, Philadelphia, Austin, San Francisco, Seattle and Lebanon.


Osborne wrote or co-wrote every song on Love and Hate, making it her most intimate record yet.  “These songs resonate especially deep for me. I feel like I’ve grown so much as a songwriter, using simpler and simpler language, getting to the heart of the matter in a purer way.”  Osborne co-produced Love and Hate with Jack Petruzzelli (Patti Smith, Rufus Wainwright) and recorded the album in the woods of Pennsylvania and her current hometown of New York City.  The pair previously collaborated for Osborne’s Bring It On Home, which was GRAMMY nominated in the Best Blues Album Category last year.


Of the concept behind Love and Hate, Osborne explains, “The image I keep coming back to is that of a beam of white light: we think it’s one thing, but when you shine it through a prism, you see that it’s made up of many different colors, different frequencies.  Love isn’t just one thing either; it can be made up of faith and passion, power struggles, humor, anguish, deep spirituality, lust, anger, everything on that spectrum.  People we love can bring out the very best and the absolute worst in us, and we can do that to them, too.  Love is always a risk.”


The soulful vocalist, who counts such legendary artists as Etta James and Ray Charles as influences, has toured extensively with her own band and as a member of The Dead. She was one of the original artists on Lilith Fair and has performed alongside many notable musicians, including Bob Dylan, Luciano Pavarotti, Stevie Wonder, Emmylou Harris, and Patti Smith, to name just a few. Osborne’s debut album Relish produced the massive MTV and international radio smash, “One of Us.” Osborne is currently a member of the rock band/creative collective Trigger Hippy formed by Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman along with Jackie Greene, Tom Bukovac and Nick Govrik.
