Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

Crucial Conversations
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Consider these questions:

Does your department suffer from taboo topics, deference, disagreement, analysis paralysis, information hoarding, office politics, or alienation?  Is your department battling slow productivity or low morale? Are you a supervisor who struggles with having difficult conversations with employees?  Then you, your team, or your department needs Crucial Conversations training.

Crucial Conversations is a two-day course that teaches skills for creating alignment and agreement by fostering open dialogue around high-stakes, emotional, or risky topics – at all levels of the organization.  By learning how to speak and be heard (and encouraging others to do the same), you’ll surface the best ideas, make the highest-quality decisions, and then act on your decisions with unity and commitment.

The CU Boulder Department of Human Resources has teamed up with VitalSmarts to offer this important course to CU Boulder employees. Based on the national best-selling book Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking when the Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations course teaches participants to speak persuasively, not abrasively; foster teamwork and better decision making; build acceptance rather than resistance; and resolve individual and group disagreements. See the attached document for a detailed description of the course.

Who Should Attend: Crucial Conversations training is appropriate for employees at all levels of the organization. Supervisors, managers, and executive leaders will find the course to be particularly relevant to their work.

Cost: $210 (The course fee includes a Crucial Conversations Toolkit, cue cards for each lesson, a Crucial Conversations model card, a copy of the New York Times bestselling book, Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations audio companion MP3 download, and a course completion certificate).

(If you were to take this course directly from VitalSmarts, the cost would be $1,395. But because we have certified CU Boulder trainers to deliver the course, we are able to offer it to CU Boulder employees for $210! Don’t miss this opportunity to receive this incredible training that is transforming organizations around the country!)

The Inclusive Classroom - Considering How Classroom Structure Can Promote Equity
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Considering How Classroom Structure Can Promote Equity

Lisa Corwin, Assistant Professor, EBIO

Students enter into the classroom with different backgrounds, resources, and social capital at their disposal. This unequal distribution of resources can create inequities in the classroom that we, as instructors, may not be aware of. In this workshop we will explore what occurs when inequities exist in a learning environment and discuss how incorporating more classroom structure can alleviate some of these inequities. Workshop will be held in ATLAS 301.

Department Colloquium - Bill Henshaw
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Bill Henshaw, Dept. of Mathematical Sciences, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Over-coming fluid-structure instabilities for incompressible flows and light bodies
 
The added-mass instability has, for decades, plagued partitioned fluid-structure interaction (FSI) simulations of incompressible flows coupled to light solids and structures. Many current approaches require tens or hundreds of expensive sub-iterations per time-step. In this talk some new stable partitioned algorithms are described for coupling incompressible flows with (1) compressible elastic bulk solids, (2) thin structural beams and (3) rigid bodies. These added-mass partitioned (AMP) schemes require no sub-iterations, can be made fully second- or higher-order accurate, and remain stable even in the presence of strong added-mass effects. These schemes are implemented using moving and deforming overlapping grids with the Overture framework.
 
 
Short bio:
 
Bill Henshaw is the Margaret A. Darrin Distinguished Professor in Applied Mathematics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He received his Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from the California Institute of Technology. He has previously worked at the IBM T.J. Watson Reserach Center, Los Alamos National Laboratory and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. His primary interests are in the numerical solution of partial differential equations and techniques for overlapping grids.

Bradley Tatar: Place-making, Landscape and Materialities: Whales and Social Practices
3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Department of Geography Colloquium Series Presents:
"Place-making, Landscape and Materialities: Whales and Social Practices in Ulsan, Korea" Presentation by Bradley Tatar, Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology, South Korea
Co-sponsored by the Center for Asian Studies (CAS)
Refreshments at 3:15 PM; talk at 3:30 PM.


In the southeastern coastal city of Ulsan in Korea, people continue to defy the global taboo on eating whale meat, which they believe is an important social practice for local identity. The Nam-gu District in the City of Ulsan has created the Special Zone for Whale Culture as a spatial territory in which many divergent social practices related to whales are carried out. In this tourist zone, how are the elements of Ulsan whale culture invented, and how are they attached to a specific place? Using the concept of landscape, I argue that place-making practices are carried out to produce different kinds of whales as material realities. I analyze three of the many kinds of whales that are produced: the natural history whale, the whale as meat, and the whale as object of conservation. I conclude by arguing that these materialized whales are not separate, but relational entities which contribute to local identity through their enactment in the landscape.

Sensitivity and Bifurcation Analysis for a Differential-Algebraic Equation Model of a Microbial Electrolysis Cell

Microbial electrolysis cells (MECs) are a promising new technology for producing hydrogen cheaply, efficiently, and sustainably. The technology is based on microbial fuel cells in which bacteria oxidize organic substrates to generate current, decreasing electricity costs. MECs are more efficient than fermentation methods and can be fed fermentation effluent or cheap and readily available wastewater. However, to scale up this technology, we need a better understanding of the processes in the devices. In this effort, we have conducted a sensitivity analysis for a differential-algebraic equation (DAE) model of a batch-fed microbial electrolysis cell with an algebraic constraint on current.  This includes both differential sensitivity analysis and principal component analysis.  We hope to identify the stability of equilibrium points and study bifurcations, but this will have to be done numerically until solutions to the transcendental constraint are available.

Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

Mini Law School 2017: Lifelong Learning Lecture Series for Non-Lawyers
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Have you ever wondered: How national monuments are designated and whether they can be undesignated? How a case gets to the Supreme Court and what they do with it once they get it? What power does an executive order have and how can it be reviewed? We will explore all of these topics and more in this fall's Mini Law School: Hot Topics. 

Mini Law School provides participants with a better understanding of important legal principles in key areas of the law. Taught by members of the CU Boulder law school faculty, the seven-week series provides a look into some of the hottest legal topics of our time. Open to all, this program is an excellent lifelong learning opportunity and is a great chance to get a mini taste of what law school is like. For fall 2017, we are excited to roll out a brand new Mini Law School curriculum, presenting topics that have not been offered previously. Each member of the Mini Law School Faculty will discuss “hot topics” in a different area of the law. The selected subjects cover some of the most pressing issue in the law today. Each week, a different topic is presented.

We will hold seven sessions on Tuesday evenings, Sept. 12 through Oct. 24. Colorado Law’s Mini Law School also will be livestreamed from Boulder to CU South Denver in Parker, Colorado, on the same dates and times. For those who neither Boulder nor Parker is convenient, we also have livestream and recorded viewing options. Participants selecting those options will receive the class materials and a link to the lecture weekly and can watch at their own pace and at the location of their choosing.

Physics Colloquium: Presented by Kyle Leach, Colorado School of Mines

Title: "The Quest for the New Standard Model: Searching for BSM Physics with Rare-Isotope Beams"

Presented by: Kyle Leach, Colorado School of Mines

Abstract: The development of the Standard Model (SM) has been one of the crowning achievements in modern physics, and is the cornerstone of current subatomic studies. Despite its success, the SM is known to be incomplete, and providing limits on possible physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM) is crucial to our understanding of the natural universe. Although they are generally complex, atomic nuclei can be exploited as a laboratory for these studies through the use of rare-isotope beams (RIBs). The production of these short-lived, very exotic isotopes has opened new avenues of research in our search for BSM physics in the era of the LHC. This work is at the precision and sensitivity frontiers, and helps to bridge the gap between atomic, nuclear, and particle physics using novel, state-of-the-art detection techniques. In this talk, I will use these topics to highlight the significant role of the atomic nucleus in our ongoing search for additional generations of quarks, new descriptions of the weak interaction, and light dark matter. These studies play a critical role in providing the groundwork for our quest to develop the "New Standard Model".

Coffee, tea and cookies will be available in DUAN G1B31 beginning at 3:45 p.m.

Mustang in Black and White: Himalayan Photography Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The University Libraries invite you to an exhibit of Kevin Bubriski's photography of Mustang, Nepal, showing through December 2017 in the 1st Floor, Underground West Gallery of Norlin Library.

"Mustang, Nepal, is known for its vibrant landscapes —blue skies, vermilion-colored cliffs, fluted canyons of deep ochre. It is a tapestry of Himalayan culture and history, a social and economic crossroads for trade, tourism, and Tibetan tradition. Today, the people of Mustang are navigating significant transformations: from the impacts of climate change across this rain shadow landscape to the lived effects of out-migration on communities who have relied for centuries on agriculture, pastoralism, and their role as culture brokers between the Tibetan plateau and Hindu South Asia."

From the new book, Mustang in Black and White by Kevin Buriski and Sienna Craig.

            This pair of short courses will provide an overview of Python fundamentals, split into two sessions, each meeting one hour for four weeks.  It is targeted at participants with prior experience programming in another language, but who wish to get up and running with Python.  Topics covered will include variables & objects, functions, conditionals, and loops. We will also discuss how to build custom Python modules and provide an overview of popular 3rd-party packages such as Numpy.  This course will combine lectures with interactive exercises.  It is available free of charge.  Participants must have the following knowledge to be able to participate:  be familiar with fundamental aspects of programming (loop structure, variables, basic data structures), and a laptop.

NOTE:  This course will not cover “how to program” – we that expect you have prior experience in another programming language, and that you want to transition to using Python.

Registration closes September 13 or once full.  Due to anticipated demand, we ask that if you register for a short course you make a commitment to attend all sessions in the course.

Due to the brevity of these sessions, we will not be able to address issues related to a faulty Python installation in-class.  Attendees are expected to arrive with a functional installation of Python 3.x and the following packages installed on their laptop:  Numpy, Matplotlib, h5py, netCDF4, and Pandas.   Installation instructions will be emailed in advance of the course.  Those requiring assistance during the installation process should either attend the September 14 prep session or make a separate appointment with Nick Featherstone (feathern@colorado.edu).

We live in a success-obsessed world. Many of us prioritize or feel burdened by our careers at the expense of family, relationships, health, and spirituality. We fail to understand that success cannot be compartmentalized. When one area of our life suffers, all the other areas will follow suit sooner or later. If you want to be successful in life, and not spend all your time and energy working, you need to strive for balance. The good news is that you can design a harmonious life with 7 daily habits. Linzee Klinkenberg will help you guide through these simple and satisfying practices to empower you to create your best day. Lunch is provided. Registration is required.

Associate Professor of History, UCLA

CITY OF INMATES:
Conquest, Rebellion, & the Rise of Human Caging in Los Angeles

Thursday, September 28, 2017, 5:00 PM
Benson Earth Sciences Building, Room 180

Kelly Lytle Hernandez is an associate professor in the UCLA Department of History. She is one of the nation’s leading historians of race, policing, immigration, and incarceration in the United States. Her award-winning book, MIGRA! A History of the U.S. Border Patrol (University of California Press, 2010), explored the making and meaning of the U.S. Border Patrol in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands, arguing that the century-long surge of U.S. immigration law enforcement in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands is a story of race in America. Her forthcoming book, City of Inmates: Conquest and the Rise of Human Caging in Los Angeles (University of North Carolina Press, 2017), is an unsettling tale that spans two centuries to unearth the long rise of incarceration as a social institution bent toward disappearing targeted populations from land, life, and society in the United States. It does so with six extraordinary stories detailing when, why, and how the dynamics of conquest made Los Angeles, California, the carceral capitol of the world. By the 1950s, she argues, incarceration was a complex and well-oiled machine of elimination targeting blacks, Natives, and Latinos. In the years ahead, the rise of mass incarceration amounted to mass elimination.

Event Image Above and Beyond: Alone. So Far...
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

If we know one thing about the universe, is that it's big. It's enormous. The pure vastness of our cosmos continues to captivate us. Among the multitudes of galaxies and stars, countless worlds exist - many of which, we believe, could harbor alien life. And yet, our searching has thus far found no trace of distant life-forms. Why is this? Is there anybody out there? In this talk we'll discuss this question famously dubbed the "Fermi Paradox." Tristan Weber will help us explore some of the possible explanations for why the stars seem so empty. If our search continues to turn up empty, what might that mean for our place in the universe?
Event Image CSTPR 15th Anniversary: Keynote Address by Brian Deese, Former Obama Senior Advisor
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join CIRES Center for Science and Technology Policy Research for their 15th anniversary public event featuring a keynote address by Brian Deese, senior fellow at Harvard Kennedy School and former Obama administration senior advisor. Bringing perspectives gained in the White House inner circle and the center of major legislative and budget negotiations, Deese provides an insider’s outlook on subjects ranging from the future of healthcare and the economy to the future of our planet.

From restructuring the American auto industry to securing the Paris climate agreement, economic and clean energy expert Brian Deese was the president’s point person on some of the most historic undertakings of the Obama administration. During eight years that ran the gamut from financial crisis to momentous achievements in healthcare, environmental protection and bipartisan budget legislation, Deese rose to the position of senior advisor, counseling the president and shaping policy on conservation, energy, financial regulation, job creation and the economic impact of healthcare reform. A key driver of U.S. global leadership on climate change, Deese was responsible for engagement with China, India and other major economies and for implementing the Obama energy agenda at home and abroad. He acted as principal negotiator of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 and oversaw the Supreme Court nomination process of Judge Merrick Garland.
