Extreme Weather and Mayan Civilization's Collapse Two professors at UC Davis have co-authored a study linking the collapse of the Mayan civilization with the preceeding decades of extreme weather.  For the first time researchers have linked climatic records with the ebbs and flows of the political climate in ancient Maya.  When weather was good, the populous and political centers rose while when the weather declined it corresponded with crop failures, famine and the eventual collapse of the Mayan civilization.  Macri and Winterhalder examine the possible correlations between the disaterous weather that preceeded Maya's collapse and the current political and climatic situation.

Men of Worth What do you get when you put a Scotsman and an Irishman on a stage and give them a tenor banjo?  The answer is the Celtic folk duo Men of Worth, with Donnie MacDonald and James Keigher.  The duo perform traditional folk and Celtic ballads combined with some heartfelt humor.  Men of Worth are performing a benefit concert in Orangevale for Casa Roble High School's drama and language programs Tuesday, November 13 before starting a tour of Southern California.  They will be back in December to perform with Sacramento Master's Singers for a Celtic-themed concert series.
