FREE Post-Truth Comedy Game Show @ The Fridge [February 17]

WHAT
It’s official people: we live in the post-truth era. Look it up, I’ll wait. So how do you determine what’s real and what isn’t? How do you sift through the information overload? Well, here’s a good place to start. We’ve got six highly knowledgeable and funny people. Each of them is going to inform you a little bit on ten different topics. You, the audience, decide what’s reality and what’s horse bologna. If you guess correctly, they have to face the consequences. And you can bet the stakes will be high.

Hosted by Pete Musto

Featuring the combined brain power of:
Natalie McGill
Kevin Tit
Alyssa A. Cowan

Charging Electric Cars for Street Parkers

Hi,

We live in Brookland and only have access to street parking in front of our house. I’d like to buy a little electric car like a Nissan Leaf, but I’m not sure how I’d charge it. Is anyone aware of a city program to make car charging easier? Does anyone have an electric car and charge it somewhere other than through their garage?

Thanks!

Brandon

Veteran medical journalist Meredith Wadman will discuss her book The Vaccine Race. It tells the timely, epic, and controversial story of the development of the first widely-used normal human cell line and, through it, important viral vaccines, including the vaccine for rubella (German measles). Far from being an instrument of history, vaccine development in the modern era is targeting new (and reemerging) infectious diseases, including Ebola, Zika, Influenza and Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV). Dr. April Killikelly, a scientist at NIH’s Vaccine Research Center, will discuss the latest tools and technologies used to design tomorrow’s vaccines.
