1:00 pm: Ideas From the CBC
MARATHON: GOING THE DISTANCE
26 miles, 385 yards, an Athenian soldier started it all when he covered the distance between the battlefield at Marathon and the marketplace at Athens. He raised his arms, shouted, "We conquer!" and promptly died. The rest is history and more than a little mythology. Since then, the marathon has moved many miles from the realm of myth and metaphor into the strange territory of science and high tech. With a tip of the hat in the direction of THIS COMING MONDAY’S 118th running of the Boston Marathon -- IDEAS pays tribute to the ultimate test of physical endurance.

Legislative Wrap-up
What did, and didn't, the legislature get done during its past session (and what's left to be done)?

1:00 pm: Intelligence Squared
An Oxford style debate on the following question: The Outlook for Millennials: Do they stand a chance?
Millennials—growing up with revolutionary technology and entering adulthood in a time of recession—have recently been much maligned. Are their critics right? Is this generation uniquely coddled, narcissistic, and lazy? Or have we let conventional wisdom blind us to their openness to change and innovation, and optimism in the face of uncertainty, which, in any generation, are qualities to be admired?

A discussion about the state of small farming in Maine.

1:00 pm: Commonwealth Club of California
Former U.S. Congressman Ron Paul speaks on “Liberty Defined”
Paul says that to believe in liberty is not to believe in any particular social and economic outcome. It is to trust in the spontaneous order that emerges when the state does not intervene in human volition and human cooperation. It permits people to work out their problems for themselves, build lives for themselves, take risks and accept responsibility for the results, and make their own decisions. In fact, Paul calls liberty the seed of America.

Techno-Snooping: Privacy, Technology, and the Evolving Rule of Law
Speaking in Maine takes us next to Waterville and Colby College for a panel discussion on Techno-Snooping: Privacy, Technology, and the Evolving Rule of Law. The right to privacy is a bedrock democratic principle, but Americans also expect the government to ensure their safety. With the exposure of the NSA's domestic surveillance program, finding a balance between privacy and security has taken on greater urgency.
