 GIS Digital Cartography course starts 8 wks @ Wash U

 Description http://ucollege.wustl.edu 
 
 Digital Cartography course : 8-week course: 5/24/11-7/21/11 
 
 Course Description: 
         In today's world, it is imperative that students develop the
         necessary skills to communicate their ideas to a large audience
         in an efficient manner.  Graphics and visual representations
         are one of the most effective ways to neatly convey complex
         data sets to readers.  This course presents both theoretical
         and hands-on mapping and graphical problems to students.
         The course teaches students the basics of GIS based mapping
         for producing publishable work.  Students will develop basic
         skills in computer-aided mapping and computer drafting primarily
         using ARCGIS, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, and Microsoft
         PowerPoint.

	Citizen Computer Science: 
	How YOU can find aliens, fold proteins, measure galaxies and more.... 
	
	Science On Tap will meet for the last time before we break for
	the +summer on Wednesday, May 25th, 7pm-8:30pm 
	at the Schlafly Bottleworks, in Maplewood at 7260 Southwest Ave. 
	
	This month features Robert Pless, PhD,
	Assoc. Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at Washington
	University speaking on Citizen Science: How YOU can find aliens,
	fold proteins, measure galaxies and more.... Professor Pless
	is very popular with the students and has received some of the
	top teaching ratings. Here are some of the students' comments:
	he is hilarious, he can make anything interesting; he is such a
	funny, great guy.... this is my favorite class to attend; he is
	so cool and his explanations are very clear; he really, really
	knows his stuff; awesome lecturer, he is incredible!  This is
	another rare opportunity to hear +a topic in computer science
	that is applicable to us and that will be clearly presented
	and fun! SETI at home, Folding at home, and Galaxy Zoo are games
	that allow anyone with a computer and an Internet connection
	to help solve large-scale scientific problems. Seti at home is a
	scientific experiment that uses internet-connected computers in
	the Search for Extra-Terrestial Intelligence (SETI).  Folding at home
	+is a distributed computing project where people throughout the
	world can help scientists study diseases by folding proteins on
	their personal computers.  Galaxy Zoo uses Hubble Space Telescope
	imagery of thousands of galaxies for people to classify according
	to their shapes. Dr. Pless, in conjunction with three other
	university centers, will be overseeing the ImageQuest project
	to enhance citizen science efforts that involve biological
	imaging.  Professor Pless will share his perspectives on
	why the public can beat the best computer programs and even
	trained researchers on some problems.  He will also highlight +new
	opportunities for engaging in âtizen scien5%) +nd mobile phone
	applications.  Professor Pless' research at Washington University
	in St. Louis focuses on Computer Vision.  His outlook on life is
	buoyed by knowing that people are still better than computers at
	many activities. Dr. Pless is back by popular demand.  The first
	time Dr. Pless spoke at Science On Tap, in Feb. 2008, he discussed
	Video Surveillance Systems.      http://scienceontap.wustl.edu

	This is a free event, but seating is limited and there are 
	no reservations.  We meet on the last Wednesday of the month 
	during the academic year, usually from 7:00 - 8:30 PM..

	     of our series of 3D Object Modeling.   The techniques covered 
	     are the same used in games and major motion pictures.  We will 
	     create some simple shapes and show how to animate these 
	     using an Open Source 3D system.  These techniques and tools 
	     can be used to create your own vids or add characters to 
	     your home movies.  "The Art of Illusion" software will be

		  The Physics & Chemistry of the Nuclear Rector 
		  Disaster in Japan. 
		  Prof. Lee G. Sobotka, 
		  Department of Chemistry and Physics, Wash U. 
		  
		  The Dai-ichi nuclear power station in Fukushima failed 
		  to keep 3 reactors and at least one spent fuel pond cool 
		  when an earthquake and tsunami cut its electric on March 11. 

                  This talk will present the chemistry and physics of this 
		  disaster.  The talk will NOT deal with either the broader 
		  issues of potential health effects of this ongoing event 
		  nor with the issue of nuclear power in general.  These 
		  discussions, while prime subjects for other presentations, 
		  must follow an understanding of how these power plants 
		  are supposed to work, what went wrong and what must be 
		  done to mitigate, as best as possible, the deleterious 
		  consequences of this still unfolding disaster.  
		  
		  This talk is TIGHTLY focused on these physical science issues.
		  
		  Crow Hall is under the silver astronomy telescope dome, 
		  1 building north of the arch, turrets, & flags of the 
		  main at Wash U.
