Best Source for Small Business, Educational & Professional Networking Events

The events that one is able to attend must always be measured by the value one is able to derive from it from the energy one puts into it.  You have to put yourself out there to even begin to experience what may come from it.  Part of even beginning this quest is at least knowing what’s out there.  To that end, Social Capitale and its community help one another publicize the best networking events –  the who, what, when where and why?  Use this tool as part of your arsenal to enhance your social capital, your network of individuals and resources to make you more successful.

If you aren’t finding what you are looking for, let us know.  If we are missing something, you have a choice as well; let us know or even better, join and add it for everyone else for mutual benefit. Sometimes you have to give in order to receive!.

And never be shy to provide your feedback!

Heart to Heart: Healing thru Music
Jul 21 @ 2:00 am – 11:59 pm

FREE CONCERT!!!   Jazz and Carnatic Fusion!!!  Sounds never heard before!!!

Heart to Heart journeys from the opening of our hearts to heart
transformation, from centering on individual self to universal Self, from
greed/selfishness to loving selflessness, from being a burdensome body/mind/
personality to being the free spirit we were meant to be, from achieving power
and pride to total perfection and peace!

It is both a personal and a collective journey, since what happens inside our
hearts necessarily affects everyone and everything around us.  Using the medium
of music, the magic of fusion, the oneness of melody & rhythm, U. Rajesh on the
Mandolin, George Brooks on the Saxophone, and Dimitris Lambrianos on wind-reed
instruments will open your hearts, removing bothersome subconscious static to
heal your spirit – bringing peace, positivity, and wellness in its wake. 

All three musicians are world-famous connoisseurs of Classical Carnatic and
Jazz music and they have come together again to create novel sounds for healing
hearts, revealing and removing hidden hurts, enhancing harmony and health, and
re-establishing the highest and purest Self.

Here Today: Posters from 1301PE, Los Angeles @ Stanford Art Gallery
Jul 23 @ 7:00 am – 11:59 pm

The Department of Art and Art History presents Here Today: Posters from
1301PE, Los Angeles, curated by Jennie Waldow and Jon Davies, PhD candidates in
art history, and initiated and facilitated by D. Vanessa Kam, Head of the Bowes
Art & Architecture Library of the Stanford Libraries. 

This exhibition showcases twenty-five years of exhibition posters from 1301PE
, the celebrated contemporary art gallery that has
enjoyed a prominent place in the thriving Los Angeles scene since its inception
in 1992.

1301PE (PE referring to Projects + Editions), currently located on Wilshire
Boulevard’s Miracle Mile, has historically featured the work of significant
international artists, as well as Los Angeles-based artists who have gone on to
be recognized internationally and to enjoy a substantial following among fellow
artists, curators, critics, and scholars. Artists and artist groups who have
shown at 1301PE over the years include Fiona Banner, Uta Barth, Kirsten
Everberg, General Idea, Jorge Pardo, Jason Rhoades, Jessica Stockholder,
SUPERFLEX, Diana Thater, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Kerry Tribe, and Pae White, among
many others. While these artists’ practices are formally and conceptually
diverse, themes that emerge include the intertwining of art, design, and pop
culture, as well as leisure and lifestyle.

Since its first exhibition in 1992, the gallery has produced unique exhibition
posters as part of its curatorial and promotional strategy under the creative
leadership of Brian D. Butler, who is not only the gallery’s founder but also
an enthusiastic proponent of artists’ editions and multiples. The posters on
view were either designed solely by the artists or in collaboration with
Butler. While these posters can be considered as important pieces of exhibition
ephemera and as extensions of the artists’ varied practices, they are first and
foremost visually engaging works of graphic art and visual communication. As a
transitory medium, the poster format allows for a high degree of freedom for
visual experimentation. Sometimes a poster will relate directly to the visual
tropes of the exhibition at hand, while in other instances it acts as an
autonomous work of art. Taken as a whole, the posters document the exhibition
history of a groundbreaking Los Angeles gallery as well as the character and
development of the city’s art scene at large.

SGS Summer Film Festival: Human Flow
Jul 25 @ 1:30 am – 11:59 pm

“Human Flow” directed by Ai Weiwei (2017)

Over 65 million people around the world have been forced from their homes to
escape famine, climate change, and war in the greatest human displacement since
World War II. Human Flow, an epic film journey led by the internationally
renowned artist Ai Weiwei, gives a powerful visual expression to this massive
human migration. The documentary elucidates both the staggering scale of the
refugee crisis and its profoundly personal human impact. Captured over the
course of an eventful year in 23 countries, the film follows a chain of urgent
human stories that stretches across the globe in countries including
Afghanistan, Bangladesh, France, Greece, Germany, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Kenya,
Mexico, and Turkey. View the trailer

The Art, Science, and Adventure of Environmental Storytelling @ Hewlett 201
Jul 25 @ 2:00 am – 11:59 pm

The Art, Science, and Adventure of Environmental Storytelling: Discovering
nature’s unexpected resiliency in a rapidly changing world through
environmental research

In 2010, young scientist Lauren E. Oakes set out to study the mass die-off of
yellow cedar trees on the outer coast of Southeast Alaska. She found herself
immersed in an even bigger, and totally unexpected story: how the people of
Alaska were adapting to the species’ disappearance, and how the forest was
adapting to the changing climate conditions. Her recent book, IN SEARCH OF THE
CANARY TREE: The Story of a Scientist, a Cypress, and a Changing World

, chronicles the six years Oakes and her team spent studying thousands of trees
and countless plants and interviewing locals whose lives are directly affected
by the loss of yellow cedar, a species impacted by climate change. To her
surprise, Oakes discovered the resiliency of forgotten forests, flourishing
again after years of exposure to stressful conditions. What they found would
also profoundly change Oakes’s understanding of how people respond to the
reality of climate change, and what is needed to spur them to action. Oakes
will share her perspectives on storytelling in science and the ways in which
she finds optimism amidst the many climate change impacts occurring across the
planet. She’ll draw from her research in Alaska, current climate adaptation
work, and experience in crafting narrative in science to shape this event
around meaningful work that addresses a breadth of environmental issues.

International Managment – Larry Diamond – Is There a Global Crisis of Democracy @ Hewlett 201
Jul 30 @ 2:00 am – 11:59 pm

Is There a Global Crisis of Democracy

For more than a decade, the world has been in a democratic recession that
shows signs of deepening and mutating into some far more threatening to the
future of freedom. The pace of democratic breakdowns has been rising in the
last decade. Each year, many more countries are declining in freedom than
gaining–including advanced liberal democracies like the U.S. Illiberal,
xenophobic populists have been gaining ground in Europe, the U.S. and many
developing countries. Established parties are declining if not in disarray.
Beyond all this is the rise of powerful authoritarian competitors, particularly
China and Russia, which are increasingly challenging the liberal model if not
directly undermining it, and which claim to have superior alternative models
and values. China is also leading the way in the growth of authoritarian
surveillance technology. In this lecture, Diamond will analyze four ill winds
that are blowing against freedom in the world: Russian rage, Chinese ambition,
illiberal populism, and American complacency. He will close with an agenda for
democratic renewal and reform.

About Larry Diamond

Larry Diamond is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and at the Freeman
Spogli Institute for International Studies. For more than six years, he
directed FSI’s Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law, where he

Policy Incubator. He is the founding co-editor of the Journal of Democracy and
also serves as senior consultant at the International Forum for Democratic
Studies of the National Endowment for Democracy. His research focuses on
democratic trends and conditions around the world and on policies and reforms
to defend and advance democracy. His forthcoming book, Ill Winds: Saving
Democracy from Russian Rage, Chinese Ambition, and American Complacency,
analyzes the challenges confronting liberal democracy in the U.S. and around
the world at this potential “hinge in history,” and offers an agenda for
strengthening and defending democracy at home and abroad. He is now writing a
textbook and preparing a massive open online course (MOOC) on democratic
development. Diamond’s other books include In Search of Democracy 2016), The
Spirit of Democracy (2008), Developing Democracy: Toward Consolidation (1999),
Promoting Democracy in the 1990s (1995), and Class, Ethnicity, and Democracy in
Nigeria (1989). He has also edited or co-edited more than forty books on
democratic development around the world. He directed the Stanford Program on
Democracy in Taiwan for more than ten years and has been a regular visitor to
Taiwan since 1995.

Brown Dwarfs: Failed Stars or Overachieving Planets?
Jul 31 @ 2:30 am – 11:59 pm

Giant planets can be up to 13 times the mass of Jupiter, while the least
massive stars are about 80 times the mass of Jupiter. In between are objects
called “brown dwarfs” – too massive to be called planets, but not massive
enough to burn hydrogen and shine like stars. Since 1994, a few thousand brown
dwarfs have been observed close to us in the galaxy. But, what are they?  Are
they more like half-pint cousins of stars, or more like overgrown planets?  In
this lecture, Eric Nielsen, a research scientist in the Kavli Institute of
Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology at Stanford University, will explain how we
observe and study brown dwarfs and what we have learned about them. It will
describe clues to their nature from their composition and their evolution over
time, and the insights they give us into how stars and planets are born.
