Price: $5

Not everyone's been beheaded. Although seizing hostages, videotaping their desperate pleas, then videotaping their vicious murders is a standard terrorist strategy in today's battlegrounds, dramatic rescues do occur. But how? In the Home Room at International House (2299 Piedmont Ave., Berkeley), US Army Colonel Gerald Schumacher discusses behind-the-scenes efforts that have gone into Iraq War hostage recoveries. A former Green Beret with over 32 years of service, Schumacher offers firsthand insights into the world's most horrifying version of hide-and-seek (residents free, nonresidents $5). Thursday, Oct. 25, 7:30 p.m.
