IC Gives the Gift of Reading

Contributed by Michael McGreevey on 12/13/2006 

Ithaca College is pleased to contine our tradition of collecting NEW children's books at our faculty and staff holiday luncheon (Thursday, December 21st). We are proud to be a part of the Family Reading Partnership’s (FRP) ongoing efforts to create a culture of literacy in our local area.

Through this simple yet powerful act, we can help to ensure children’s books are a special part of the the routines and traditions of family life for all children in our community. We know that books increase in value when they are given as gifts, especially when they come as part of the holidays, and as gifts from a parent.

Give the Gift of Family Reading is a children’s book drive for the holidays, designed to provide beautiful new books for parents of low-income families to give to their children as holiday gifts.

Bruce Thompson, Assistant Professor of Physics, and Tayza Yeelin, a senior physics major, have published a paper entitled "Duplicity in 16 Piscium Confirmed from Its Occultation by 7 Iris on 2006 May 5" in the December issue of Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific.

The paper reports an observation of the minor planet Iris as it passed in front of the star 16 Piscium in the constellation Pisces. The analysis of the data shows that the star is really two stars of approximately equal magnitude. Their separation is too small to be observed by standard telescopic observations but was evident in the way that the light dimmed and reappeared during the event.
