The true story of gold medal champion Jesse Owens PG-13 | 2h14min
In the 1930s, Jesse Owens is a young man who is the first in his family to go to college. Going to Ohio State to train under its track and field coach, Larry Snyder, the young African American athlete quickly impresses with his tremendous potential that suggests Olympic material. However, as Owens struggles both with the obligations of his life and the virulent racism against him, the question of whether America would compete at all at the 1936 Olympics in Nazi Germany is being debated vigorously. When the American envoy finds a compromise persuasive with the Third Reich to avert a boycott, Owens has his own moral struggle about going. Upon resolving that issue, Owens and his coach travel to Berlin to participate in a competition that would mark Owens as the greatest of America's Olympians even as the German film director, Leni Riefenstahl, locks horns with her country's Propaganda Minister, Josef Goebbels, to film the politically embarrassing fact for posterity.

A recent multi -year cooperative research study between UNH and NH Fish and Game was conducted to examine the distribution and abundance of bobcats in the state, identify what habitat features they rely upon, and to develop an understanding of how bobcats respond to expanding human populations.
This program will include information about the natural history of bobcats, habitat needs and the implications of research findings for future management.
