Positive Thinkers Group (PTG) is a FREE senior activity group with very intellectual, intelligent and thoughtful individuals, established by self-help author Chuck Gallozzi on September 11, 1999.
They used to meet face-to-face every Saturday morning 10 to 12 but because of COVID-19 they meet virtually through ZOOM.
Every week PTG and H2O Student Volunteers get together for a friendly meeting, respectful discussion and great interaction. They learn from each other and enjoy their time at PTG.
Each session has two portions, one portion presented by PTG member and the other by H2O member.
You are welcome to attend. Feel free to contact us for more information.
EXAMPLES of PRESENTATION of H2O Volunteers at PTG
Vision and Related Disorders
by Samrin Sobahan student at University of Toronto
ABSTRACT: The machinery of the human visual system was discussed to explain how light information from our environment is translated into neural signals that our brain can process. Various visual neurological disorders were discussed including the types of visual agnosia, synesthesia, and neglect. Finally, the connection between our visual system and our circadian rhythm was discussed in terms of hormone production and the negative effects of blue light during dark hours.
The Future of Meatless Meat
by Diljot Badesha at University of Toronto
INTRODUCTION: Using graphs, the presentation showed the environmental impacts of the meat we eat daily and also mentioned alternatives to eating meat (plant based meat and cell based meats). This presentation was inspired by a documentary I watched back in May on CBC called Meat the Future.
