The Big Picture: Photographing the Black Hole
at the Center of the Galaxy
Dr. Larry Price
     Starting in April 2017, international researchers linked radio telescopes around the world, aiming them simultaneously at Sagittarius A* (pronounced A-star), the enormous black hole at the center of our galaxy. The goal? To take a picture of a supposedly invisible object in space, the black hole itself. Data from the combined telescopes are currently being analyzed. What will we learn? What will it all mean? Success will provide the first opportunity to measure directly the properties of black holes, still-mysterious objects which have only been observed indirectly until now. It will provide an incomparable test of Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity at extreme values of the gravitational field. And, perhaps most importantly, it should give us important clues with which to construct the still-elusive quantum theory of gravity. Dr. Price will explain all of this, without assuming technical knowledge, and provide us all with a good framework for following what should be one of the hot scientific stories of 2019 and beyond.

The Brain Makes The Mind
Dr. Robert Collins

Just what does our brain create in the guise of reality? In the past 20 years, neuroscience has found out where and how the brain uses consciousness to create who we are. The details are disturbing: We live in a world without color, sound, aromas and taste; "free will" is a delusion; and Google knows us better than we know ourselves. Dr. Collins will explore brain-mind functions to see just exactly who--or what--is in charge.

Rug Bazaar

rolled and laid rugs from Istanbul Rug Bazaar, here at the Belfry

The folks from Istanbul Rug Bazaar of Portland haul a truckload of gorgeous Turkish rugs over to Sisters for a few days so that Central Oregon can have the opportunity to see, touch and buy rugs — new, antique, wool, cotton, silk, with natural dyes.

This event is 10am - 6pm Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, Nov 1-4.

More about IRB: "We migrated to Portland from our homeland of Anatolia, Turkey. Babik (pronounced “baw-bik”) is the ancient name of our homeland—located in the Kurdish region of Anatolia—referring to “land of Grandfather.” Babik is a town with many sheep farmers, the sheep’s wool has supported our family for thousands of years. Because sheep are such a vital part of our family’s well-being, they are treated with much respect and raised naturally on organic farms.

The beautiful carpets and kilims from nearby regions are woven with symbols that tell tales and histories of people. These bring back memories of home, where weavers like my mother and grandmother put their heart into their work, and their works of art adorned each room. My most treasured memories are of family gatherings for dinner around the hand-woven sofra."

Come join us for a fabulous selection of Turkish Carpets and strong Turkish Coffee!
