OIEC Information Session: Colorado Pregnancy Legislation (Multi-Day Event)
End Time 3:00 PM

On Dec. 8, 2016, the Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance (OIEC) circulated an Administrative eMemo regarding recent Colorado legislation passed into law. Read the full memo text here. The new law, effective Aug. 10, 2016, requires Colorado employers to engage in an interactive process to assess potential reasonable accommodations for applicants and employees for conditions related to pregnancy and childbirth.

In an effort to educate CU Boulder employees, the OIEC has scheduled information sessions. Employees will learn about applicable rights as a pregnant employee and supervisors will learn about necessary requirements as a state of Colorado employer.

11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Home: American photography at the CU Art Museum
March 2 - July 15, 2017

Is home “where the heart is”? Is it a building, a landscape or a state of mind? Drawn from the photography collection of the CU Art Museum, Home investigates how American photographers working from the late 1800s to today have engaged with these questions. Through a presentation of landscapes, family photos and candid portraits visitors are invited to consider central themes of the exhibition, including environment, nostalgia and family.

What does home mean to you?
We invite our guests to respond to the images and ideas presented in the exhibition by visiting a special programming space in our FlexSpace gallery, open from February 2, 2017–March 25, 2017.

This exhibition is generously supported by CU-Boulder Student Arts and Cultural Enrichment fees, and CU Art Museum members.

Abstract: Water scarcity is one of the greatest global crises that we currently face. This presentation will review the energy efficiency, the state of the technology, and the environmental challenges of seawater desalination.  A discussion will be presented on the possible reductions in energy demand by state-of-the art seawater desalination technologies; the potential role of advanced materials and innovative technologies in improving energy use, reliability, and environmental impact of seawater desalination; and the sustainability of desalination as a technological solution to global water shortages.

About the Speaker: Menachem (Meny) Elimelech is the Roberto Goizueta Professor at the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering at Yale University. His research is in the general area of the water-energy nexus, including (i) membrane separations for desalination and wastewater reuse, (ii) environmental applications of nanomaterials, and (iii) water and sanitation in developing countries. Professor Elimelech has received numerous awards in recognition of his research. Notable among these are his election to the National Academy of Engineering in 2006, the Eni Prize for ‘Protection of the Environment’ in 2015, and the Clarke Prize for excellence in water research in 2005.  He has also been recognized as a Thomson Reuters Highly Cited Researcher in two categories: Environment/Ecology and Chemistry.

Title: Gait and Balance - Neural Mechanisms and Markers of Neuroplasticity

Abstract: Although diagnostic assessment via clinical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been in use for decades, only recently have advanced MR techniques been utilized in the research setting to investigate neural mechanisms underlying gait and balance control, to identify biomarkers for disease progression, and to assess therapeutic intervention efficacy. Functional MRI (fMRI) has been used extensively in a variety of stimulus-response paradigms to identify regions of task-specific neural activity. More recently, functional connectivity MRI (fcMRI) has revealed that the brain is very active even in the absence of explicit input or output. That is to say, spontaneous fluctuations in neural activity is not random noise, but is specifically organized in the resting human brain and serves as a potentially important and revealing manifestation of spontaneous neuronal activity providing insight into the intrinsic functional architecture and topography of the brain and potential physiological correlates of disease and mobility impairment. Finally, emerging literature is making use of diffusion weighted imaging within the MR environment to identify associations between white matter microstructural integrity and locomotor control. Combining functional MR approaches with diffusion imaging allows for a comprehensive assessment of neural structure and function.

While exciting advances have been made; the study of gait and balance with MR-based methods is clearly hampered by the inability to actually stand and/or move within the MRI environment, which would allow recording brain activity evoked by actual locomotion. To address this limitation, several MR-compatible approaches have been developed to provide indirect evidence of supraspinal involvement in locomotion. These approaches have identified brain activity patterns during imagined actions such as standing, walking, and running, as well as neural activity while actually performing voluntary or passive lower limb movements inside the scanner. The latter studies have incorporated diverse levels of complexity, from the evaluation of isolated, unilateral, and repetitive ankle and knee movements to more complex tasks that require coordinated movements of multiple joints reflective of stepping or pedaling actions.

This talk will provide insight into the structural and functional brain circuitry that underlie locomotor control identified via MR-based methodologies. In addition, I will discuss recent work detailing structural and functional neural mechanisms that are, at least in part, responsible for impairments in locomotor control that accompany healthy aging and select neurologic populations including multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease.

All colloquia take place on Friday from 12:00 to 2:00 pm (unless otherwise noted) in Room D428 and D430 on the fourth floor of the Muenzinger Psychology Building.

If you have questions, please call the ICS Office at 303-492-5063.

APPM Graduate Recruitment - Keith Julien

Asymptotic strategies for modeling geophysical and astrophysical flows

Geophysical and astrophysical fluid flows occur on scales that are often strongly influenced by forces such as buoyancy, rotation, magnetic and shear. In many cases it is typical that one or more of these forces dominate and constrain the observed dynamics. Such situations are characterized by the extreme values of non-dimensional parameters measuring the relative magnitude of applied forces. Current models and simulations are conducted at parameters orders of magnitudes away from observed values and often
in regimes where extrapolations are questionable.  Improvements in computing power through Moore’s laws will produce minimal advances with present-day models. It is therefore clear that advances must occur through new model development and associated simulations utilizing extreme parameter values in an asymptotic manner. This will require a body of knowledge gained from large-scale direct numerical simulations, laboratory experiments  and observations that explore the tendency towards extreme
parameter values in controlled settings.

In this talk, an overview is given of recent advances utilizing asymptotic method to develop reduced partial differential equations that capture the relevant dynamics. Rotationally constrained flows will be used as case study illustrating how advancements are occurring through a confluence of asymptotic models, laboratory investigations and direct numerical simulations of the Navier-Stokes equations.

“The Rocky Horror Show” is an outrageous mashup of campy science fiction, Marvel-inspired characters, 1960s beach party jams and rock ’n’ roll music of every vintage. When a newly engaged couple gets caught in a storm and meets the tan, muscular new creation of mad transvestite scientist Frank N. Furter, their world is forever changed. First premiered at a small experimental theater in London more than 40 years ago, “The Rocky Horror Show” is now a worldwide stage hit.
