"An Evening with Mika and Joe"
As the face of MSNBCs Morning Joe, former Florida Congressman Joe Scarborough ignites early morning audiences with his no-holds barred political commentary with co-host and journalist Mika Brzezinski. As the Democrat to her partner Joe Scarborough's Republican, Brzezinski spends each weekday morning debating the headlines of the day with a roundtable of political insiders, journalists, and newsmakers.
TIME magazine has called Morning Joe "revolutionary." The New Yorker described Morning Joe as "appallingly entertaining." The New York Times ranked it as the top news show in 2008 and a 2010 follow-up praised Brzezinski and Scarborough's natural repartee and off the cuff commentary. Morning Joe has also consistently beaten CNN and Headline News in the ratings since 2011.
Both Scarborough and Brzezinski are best-selling authors - Scarborough for Rome Wasn't Burnt in a Day and The Last Best Hope: Restoring Conservatism and America's Promise and Brzezinski for All Things At Once, Knowing Your Value and Obsessed: America's Food Addiction-and My Own.

The Department of World Languages and the Center for Latino Studies present "Ixcanul" (translates roughly to "volcano" in the Mayan dialect of Kaqchikel). The plot underlines the conflict between a mother who wants to marry her daughter to a man she does not like. The young woman would prefer to run away with a boy she likes, and both of them would like to immigrate to the United States eventually. The film evidences the young woman's confrontation with the modern world-a plot point that is based on the real-life, ongoing exploitation of indigenous people in Guatemala. View Event
