TIMES: 3PM & 7PM
The Mountain View Studio
20 Mountain Ave Woodstock, NY 12498

In A KIND SHOT, a 6’1” blonde spitfire Terri Mateer tells her life story of becoming a pro basketball player in France. Raised by a single, hippy mom, an African American surrogate father stepped in and taught her how to play the game. Being 6’1” in the sixth grade, she’s a natural, but dreams of becoming an architect. Terri’s unbelievable journey includes playing pro ball, modeling, stripping, designing erotica and taking lots of shots at life. It’s an uplifting, honest, no-holds-barred personal account that illustrates we all need a little bit of kindness.

Woodstock Talks/ The Voynich Manuscript Deciphered

Part 2

Jim Handlin: The Voynich Manuscript Deciphered, Part I Saturday, Dec 9th 2017, 5:00-6:30 PM Mountain View Studio 20 Mountain View Avenue, Woodstock 845-679-0901 ☼ mtviewstudio@gmail.com $8 donation suggested

The Voynich manuscript is an illustrated codex hand-written in an unknown writing system. The vellum on which it is written has been carbon-dated to the early 15th century (1404–1438), and it may have been composed in Northern Italy during the Italian Renaissance.[1][2] The manuscript is named after Wilfrid Voynich, a Polish book dealer who purchased it in 1912.[18]

Some of the pages are missing, with around 240 remaining. The text is written from left to right, and most of the pages have illustrations or diagrams. Some pages are foldable sheets.

The Voynich manuscript has been studied by many professional and amateur cryptographers, including American and British codebreakers from both World War I and World War II.[19] No one has yet demonstrably deciphered the text, and it has become a famous case in the history of cryptography. The mystery of the meaning and origin of the manuscript has excited the popular imagination, making the manuscript the subject of novels and speculation. None of the many hypotheses proposed over the last hundred years has yet been independently verified.[20]

In 1969 the Voynich manuscript was donated by Hans P. Kraus[21] to Yale University’s Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, where it is catalogued under call number MS 408.[13][22]
