Join us at next Monday’s ENVS Seminar to find out why “The Environment Does not Stop at the Edge of the Earth’s Atmosphere!”
Contributed by Carol Hansen on 11/13/2014
While most folks have their feet planted firmly on the ground, IC Physics professor Luke Keller is engaged in observing space from a flying telescope. In collaboration with NASA and other researchers, Luke works aboard the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy, or SOFIA, an eight-foot-wide, 17-ton telescope situated within a modified Boeing 747. Work in the stratosphere and beyond with this and other observatories to study the formation of stars and planets has led him to wonder about how we define "the environment." Conclusion: It does not stop at the Earth's atmosphere! Luke will describe his work and how he came to be working on a flying telescope, then turn to a discussion of the "homo-sapiens-sphere," (also known as space debris and space "junk"), which now reaches to the edge of our solar system.

Using true stories of those behind bars and of the families — including her own — whose loved ones are incarcerated, she argues compellingly that our broken punishment system needs a major overhaul. With 2.3 million men, women, and teens currently behind bars, families and communities — especially poor communities of color — are often shattered.

Steven Jakobi to Speak this Wednesday about Efforts to Restore the American Chestnut Tree – Once a Primary Component of our Native Forests and Now on the Brink of Extinction
Contributed by Carol Hansen on 11/09/2014
The American chestnut tree has been a central part of the ecosystem of central New York and the rest of the eastern United States, once covering 25% of the forest canopy. Its presence in American music, literature, house and barn construction, furniture-making, and history makes it an integral part of our culture. However, what once was a vital economic and ecological mainstay is now on the brink of extinction. Professor Steven Jakobi of Alfred State College will talk on what has happened to this grand tree, and what is currently being done to bring this tree back as a vital component of our local forests. Jakobi graduated with a PhD in in Plant Pathology from West Virginia University, where he researched hypovirulence as a way to increase American chestnut survival against the invasive fungus afflicting it.

Independent journalist Madiha Tahir will screen and discuss her film on Pakistani survivors of U.S. drone attacks.
"Wounds of Waziristan: Ethnography of a Kill Zone"
Since the drone attacks began in Pakistan in 2004, much of the focus by analysts and academics has been on aspects of drone technology. Tahir’s documentary, “Wounds of Waziristan,” considers the voices of those who experience such attacks firsthand, who have been either labeled de facto as “combat militants” or summarily dismissed as “collateral damage.”
