Best Bets for Wednesday, Aug. 21

Looking for something to do today? Here are The Salem News' Best Bets:

Lindley Hanson of Salem State University's Geological Sciences Department will talk about the foundation of bedrock on which Salem and Marblehead are built in a presentation at the Explorers Lifelong Learning Institute Center, 10 Federal St., Salem, this morning. The bedrock, which reveals a history of volcanic activity and faulting, resembles that of western North Africa. Hanson will explain when this activity occurred, how the rocks got here, and what geologic processes are responsible for shaping the present harbors and coasts. Today's event, which starts at 10 a.m., is open to the public; donations will be appreciated from nonmembers in attendance. For more information, call 978-744-0804 or visit www.explorerslli.org.

Looking for a leg up on a new career? The North Shore Community College Institute for Corporate Training and Technology will host a free career training information night tonight at 6:30 at 100 Cummings Center, Suite 121E, Beverly. Bring your resume to have it professionally reviewed at no charge. Veterans are also invited to speak with a representative from NSCC’s Veterans Services to learn about eligibility for educational funding. For more information, call 978-236-1200.

Learn how Hank Phillippi Ryan went from a reporter at Rolling Stone Magazine to the U.S. Senate and then to undercover investigations for NBC at 7 p.m., as Ryan is the featured speaker at tonight's lecture at The House of the Seven Gables, 115 Derby St., Salem.
