There’s a pretty clear line between journalism and science, but Robert Krulwich doesn’t mind sitting right in the middle. The host of Radiolab has that kind of unique and curious mind that lends itself perfectly to audio storytelling. “I choose to examine a paradox: that some of the best stories we do, the best stories I’ve read, the best stories I’ve seen are science stories that make no sense at all,” Krulwich tells EW. Those stories are the ones with no clear answers because the research isn’t complete yet or the question can never be answered. Radiolab, Krulwich says, is about “the difference between knowing something and wondering.” You can explore that difference this weekend at Inside Science with Radiolab’s Robert Krulwich at the Hult Center. Instead of the normal journalism shtick of showing up in front of the camera with every fact laid out and the story complete in the journalist’s mind, “we take up a problem and we meander with it, we actually show you what it’s like in the middle when you don’t know what it’s about and you have arguments about it.” Krulwich adds, “You sometimes ask stupid questions and get corrected, and it’s embarrassing and you laugh a lot because what else can you do?” Attendees can look forward to exploring some deep problems with whales and foxes, Krulwich says, “And then it finishes with a spectacular story about two hawks who are deeply in love it seems, but you can’t really say that about a hawk if you’re not a hawk.”

Inside Science with Radiolab’s Robert Krulwich is Saturday, Jan. 21 at 8 pm at the Hult Center’s Silva Concert Hall. $23-$85. — Kelly Kenoyer

This is a tough week for those of us who cherish decency, reason and the continued existence of NATO, and it’s easy to feel helpless in the face of giant gears turning against our collective will. But there are small ways we can devote our time, money and energy towards helping each other and making the world a better place, even if the Jan. 20 Trump inauguration may spell a dark future. That’s the thinking of Megan Floretta, owner of The Vintage restaurant. “There were some groups that our hearts went out to and we wanted to do something to bring people together,” Floretta says. She decided to give all the profits of her business the week of the inauguration to nonprofits for The Vintage Charity Week. “We did it based on the groups we felt were most discriminated against or targeted in terms of negativity. We just wanted to show those groups that they were actually valued and welcomed,” Floretta adds. Thursday’s profits will go to the Tamarack Wellness Center, a therapeutic and recreational warm water facility, and Friday’s profits are for Trans Lifeline, a national hotline for transgender people in crisis. Saturday will support local Sexual Assault Support Services (SASS) and Sunday’s profits will be donated to Centro Latino Americano, a local nonprofit that supports the area’s Latino community. Floretta says, “Whether you’re liberal or conservative we can all agree that all people have value, so it’s a chance for people to come together from both sides of the political spectrum.” 

The Vintage is open 11 am-10 pm weekdays, 9 am-10 pm Saturday and 9 am-9 pm Sunday at 837 Lincoln St. The restaurant’s charity week runs Thursday, Jan. 19 to Sunday, Jan. 22. — Kelly Kenoyer

Monday is Martin Luther King, Jr. day, so how better to spend it than in service to the community? Friends of Trees is having a community ivy pull-down in Alton Baker Park to protect the ecosystem there. Erik Burke, the Eugene Director of Friends of Trees, says, “It helps the understory plants like the wildflowers and it also helps release the trees a little bit.” This particular area of the park is special, he says, because it’s “one of the best examples of the wildflowers that used to grow in these areas.” Burke says there are several species of lilies and delphiniums that grow in the area, but they compete with invasive species like English Ivy. “The reason we want to get it off the trees isn’t so much to keep it from killing the trees, which it rarely does, but because the ivy reproduces when it climbs.” By preventing the ivy from reproducing, volunteers will be helping the indigenous wildflowers grow better in springtime. “I would encourage people to go to the Whilamut natural area in Alton Baker Park because there’s spectacular wildflowers and birding in the area,” Burke says. He hopes to see 100 volunteers on Jan. 16, and says, “We’d like to thank Willamalane Park and Recreation district, Northwest Natural, Northwest Youth Corps, The Holden Center, and the National Academy of Gymnastics” for their participation.

Friends of Trees green space ivy pull event, gloves, tools, & refreshments provided, Monday, Jan. 16, 8:30-11:30 am, meet at the Patterson Slough bridge south of Walnut Road, Spfd., RSVP at eugenetrees@friendsoftrees.org or 632-3683. FREE. — Kelly Kenoyer
