Hello Reader of the Science Persuasion!

As I understand it…  Throughout history and prehistory, humans would observe something and try to understand it.  I think it is our nature to try and understand.  Early on there was little information to help understand what they were observing or experiencing.  This might be the reason there have been or are so many gods.  Over the years more things were observed and humans began to establish an understanding of what was real and what was supernatural.  They even tried to understand more about what real things, like progressing from the original four elements of earth, water, fire, and air to the periodic table, which has many  variations  itself!  This probably led to the concept, practice, and acceptance of science.  To quote many in the public eye, "I am not a scientist".  I think I have a reasonable understanding of science and accept it as the best tool we have to understand much of what goes on in our universe and how to hopefully make life better here.  Many think there is a conflict between science and the various foundations of the many faiths of the world.  I leave that to those who want to debate it.  I'm not really interested in that discussion.  Consider the age old question of which came first and why

(Please bear with me on this.  For some reason the info that mailchimp is adding to the links I have included is randomly not working.  They test fine for me, but they don't come through the mail.  If you get a bad link if you look at the link itself you will see that other info has been added after the / or ?.  It looks like this...  mc_cid=23f527985f&mc_eid=[UNIQID]   If you strip that stuff off you should be able to see what I'm pointing you to. Needless to say this is why this is so late coming out to you!  herb)

That was a long way of saying that when we find out the results of the collective decisions made on November 3, 2020, our collective understanding of science, reason, and facts will have had a great influence on what our future looks like.  I can't emphasize it enough that voting is what allows progress to happen but can also result in regressive actions as well if it is not done by an informed, reasonable, rational, and contemplative community.  I like to think that if you are reading this, you part of this community. 

This week is part of the new normal!  We don't get to go to interesting presentations and ask informed speakers insightful questions.  That doesn't mean that there aren't opportunities to learn cool new things.  The Bay Area Science Festival is happening!    Consider this, Reaching for the Heavens - Celebrating 30 years of the Hubble Space Telescope - Livestream this Tuesday.  Halloween trivia…  If you were born after Oct 31, 2000, during your entire life a few humans at a time have continuously been living in space on the ISS!  Here's how you can actually see it.  You and many more missed the flyby of Halley's Comet in 1986.  This week you may be able to see some of what's left of it and soon an asteroid will get a "fist bump" of sorts.

We recently lost another scientist we should have known better.  She was a major player in helping to protect threatened species.  Just what do you think of when you picture a scientist?  I hope we get a chance to share that soon.

Some fun food science items came across my monitor this week.  Check out How Artisanal French Butter Is Made and A Disturbing Twinkie That Has, So Far, Defied Science

Last week I suggested that The Making of my Octopus Teacher was worth your attention.  There's an interesting follow up to it…  The Making of My Octopus Teacher  If you have been feeling a little distracted in these times of covid.  You might want to consider if It Pays to Be a Space Case

I share this with you only because it is amazing, even though good science isn't necessarily part of the story here!  Meet the Opossum Lady, the Undisputed Queen  I hope you enjoy.

Have a great election; I'll be back at the SciSchmooze Sunday after the elections.

"Science literacy isn’t about figuring out how to solve equations like E=MC². Rather, it’s about being able to read an article in the newspaper about the environment, about health care and figuring out how to vote on it. It’s about being able to prepare nutritious meals. It’s about being able to think your way through the day."  — Mae C. Jemison

Musical Similarity in Copyright and Cognition - Livestream - 10/19/2020 11:30 AM
Symbolic Systems Forum

Musical similarity is defined in many ways, all of them imperfect.  Exactitude somehow defies the meaning of the word similarity a likeness without precise replication.  In practical use musical similarity is a  frequent consideration in music-copyright infringements suits.  Here we investigate reasons for the widening gap between legal understandings of musical similarity and findings in current research in music cognition.  These dichotomies are pertinent: (1) The confrontation between commercial definitions of musical content and the intellectual ones that are foundational in analytical and philosophical enquiries; (2) the inherent conflict between the musical work as defined in sound and in a written score; and (3) the missed opportunity for meaningful dialogue between prosecutors of high-profile cases in music-infringement and proponents of cognitive approaches to similarity studies.

Speaker: Eleanor Selfridge-Field, Stanford University


Delafossite oxides: natural, ultra-pure metal-insulator heterostructures - Livestream - 10/19/2020 02:30 PM
UC Berkeley,

Delafossite oxides are layered compounds, which can be thought of as natural heterostructures of triangularly coordinated metallic sheets and transition metal oxide blocks. A fascinating range of electronic states can be found both in their bulk and on their surfaces, including extremely high conductivity 1,2in PtCoO2and PdCoO2, maximal Rashba-like spin-splitting 3 on the transition metal terminated surfaces of PtCoO2, PdCoO2 and PdRhO2, Stoner ferromagnetism 4 on the Pd-terminated surface of PdCoO2 and, perhaps most remarkably, an intertwined spin-charge response due to a Kondo couplingbetween metallic and Mott insulating layers5in PdCrO2. Our group has investigated these states experimentally with transport measurements and angle resolved photoemission, and theoretically with first principles calculations and model Hamiltonians, where applicable. I will show how in a number of cases the simplicity and cleanliness of the materials allows us to pinpoint to the underlying cause forthe remarkable electronic behaviour, and in turn to use delafossites as model systems to understand complex phenomena.

Speaker: Veronika Sunko, Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids

The Changing Landscape of Electric Vehicle Charging - Livestream - 10/19/2020 04:00 PM
Stanford Energy

Electrification of transportation continues to accelerate as incumbent and new vehicle companies commit hundreds of billions of dollars to developing and producing electric cars and trucks.  The impending arrival of a plethora of EVs in all shapes and sizes has created a pressing need for a ubiquitous and robust charging network.  Enhanced EV capabilities, evolving utility grids, broadened driver demographics, and government imperatives that place addressing climate change at the center of the energy equation are affecting how EV charging infrastructure must develop and be deployed.  EVgo, the US’s largest public fast charging network, is at the center of this growth.  EVgo CEO Cathy Zoi and CTO/COO Ivo Steklac will lead a seminar discussing the dynamic landscape of charging infrastructure and its critical role in creating a transportation sector that is sustainable, both economically and environmentally.

Bill McKibben & Vandana Shiva in Conversation: Social Transformation - Visions & Mobilizations - Li vestream - 10/20/2020 08:00 AM
UC Santa Cruz,

Before the coronavirus pandemic, we already knew social transformation was necessary. Now we know it’s possible. Political and economic policies that were previously fringe are now front and center in national and international conversations. In the last months, we’ve witnessed people taking to the streets to protest authoritarian governments, racial injustice, unequal health care, and climate change. We're witnessing an outbreak of politics that cannot be contained. These “silver linings” are situated within a context of growing inequality, war, authoritarianism, violence, poverty, hunger, and the potential to undermine the Earth’s support systems through the loss of biodiversity, clean water, and a stable climate.

For decades, Vandana Shiva and Bill McKibben have used their moral imaginations to envision a better world, articulate a global agenda for sustainable societies, advoca te for policy advancements, and support social movements. Join Shiva and McKibben to imagine the future from the perspective of people and the planet, including a look at what Green New Deal & Just Recovery programs could help seed around the world in terms of livelihoods, human rights, and the environment.

* Offered through the SF State Osher Life-long Learning Institute (OLLI), but open to anyone over age 50. 

Have you recently had an irresistible desire to get off planet Earth and be somewhere else?  Then join the scientist who is often called the Bay Area’s public astronomer on a fun tour of the not-to-be-missed "tourist sights" among the planets and moons with which we share the Sun, and among the nearby stars, glowing clouds, and star clusters in our Milky Way Galaxy!

When you register for the class, if you are not a current member of OLLI, you will be asked to sign up, but it’s a free process.

The class discussion will be accompanied with really dramatic color images from the latest space probes, many of them new. We'll learn about some of the most interesting vistas in deep space, including:

* the steam geysers on one of Saturn's moons,

* a cliff on a moon of Uranus’ which is the tallest lovers leap in the solar system

* nearby stars that have intriguing planets that may be habitable

* several glowing columns of cosmic material that are being converted into new stars and new planets right now

* the colorful death-shrouds that surround aging stars in our neighborhood. 

Designed like the Rick Steves travel shows on public TV, these tours are for the beginner, and will assume no background in science.  Discover how we humans fit into the bigger picture.

Instructor: Andrew Fraknoi retired Chair of the Astronomy Department at Foothill College


The Problem of Wildfire: How Wildfire Leads to Cascading Hydrologic and Geomorphic Hazards - Livestream - 10/20/2020 03:30 PM
UC Santa Cruz

Within our solar system, Earth is the only planet that is affected by wildfires, and wildfire has been a constant presence on the planet since at least the Silurian period. However, the effect of wildfire on the earth’s surface remains relatively under-studied. Many studies of earth surface processes focus on how fluids (e.g. wind, water, ice) directly shape the earth through sediment transport. Wildfire does not directly transport sediment. However, wildfire is a remarkable catalyst for earth surface change because it alters two key landscape properties: (1) wildfire greatly increases the susceptibility for overland flow in otherwise well-drained soils, and (2) wildfire increases soil erodibility relative to similar unburned settings. Consequently, order-of-magnitude increases in erosion rates may occur during rainstorms with relatively frequent recurrence intervals. This talk will focus on typical wildfire effects in burned watersheds, with a special focus on the role of wildfire in generating debris flow and landslide hazards.

Chemical signaling induced by various modes of phytoplankton death and the implications for the microbial loop - Livestream - 10/21/2020 03:30 PM
Estuary & Ocean Science Center,

Diatoms are important phytoplankton in the world oceans, contributing significantly to primary productivity and carbon export. Some species of diatoms and other eukaryotic phytoplankton produce allelopathic compounds called oxylipins when they are stressed. Oxylipins produced by diatoms have been observed to decrease copepod reproductive success and induce expression of key stress response genes, inhibit free-living bacteria, stimulate particle-associated bacteria, and stunt the growth of phytoplankton competitors. Here we will explore the impact of dinoflagellate grazing and viral infection on the production of oxylipins by diatoms and the ecological implications of the oxylipins produced.

Carbon Neutral Pathways for the United States - Livestream - 10/21/2020 04:00 PM
Energy and Resources Group,

Achieving carbon-neutrality in the U.S. by mid-century requires practical roadmaps of the infrastructure transition, costs, and tradeoffs involved. We modeled the energy system in detail to create pathways to net-zero and net-negative CO2 emissions by 2050. The least-cost pathway met all forecast energy needs at a net cost of 0.4% of GDP, using only commercial or near-commercial technologies, without early retirement of existing infrastructure. Constrained pathways  e.g. limits on land available for renewable siting, biomass use, or consumer adoption of low-carbon technologies also met the target, but at higher cost. This study provides a playbook for carbon neutrality policy with concrete near-term priorities.

Lubricants and Glitter: Revolutionizing Sexual Assault Investigation @ Online Zoom Event - Livestream - 10/21/2020 05:00 PM
California Section American Chemical Society,

Sexual assaults are an unfortunate reality in modern society, which includes situations in which the assailant is known or unknown. While DNA is the go-to forensic evidence in sexual assault cases, the reality is that the use of condoms in sexual assault is increasing in an effort to minimize the type of DNA left at the crime scene, specifically sperm/semen. Therefore, in the absence of DNA, it is necessary to identify other type of forensic evidence (such as lubricants and cosmetic residues) that could be used in these types of cases to link the three points in the criminal triangle, e.g. victim, suspect and crime scene. This talk will discuss current efforts that we are conducting to understand the evidentiary value of lubricant and cosmetic evidence and appropriate analytical methods to analyze and characterize unknown samples collected in a sexual assault or physical assault cases.

The MAGIC of Semantic IxD - Livestream - 10/21/2020 06:45 PM
SF Bay Association of Computing Machinery,

Do you know how much cognitive load your design ideas will place on the user even before you sketch out the first screen? If the cognitive load of your UX design is too high, users will find your product difficult and unpleasant to use.

It's possible to measure cognitive load in a usability lab, but by then it is too late and too expensive to fix the underlying problems. The solution? You need to know how much cognitive load your users will face and mitigate it at the beginning of your design projects. In other words, a technique to minimize cognitive load should guide your design practice from the very start.

In this guest lecture, Professor Rosenberg will introduce Semantic Interaction Design, an innovative method that spans all the way from core conceptual models to the deployment of applied game theory techniques to create optimal experiences for users.

In this talk you'll learn:

• How cognitive science lends itself to Semantic Interaction Design
• Real examples of the benefits and success of this new approach
• How to convert product requirements into initial UX designs 10X faster
• How to design experiences with higher initial quality
• The 4-layer UX framework that unifies UX grammar, presentation, flow and game theory
• How this method incorporates data driven business decisions to guide product success

This lecture introduces Professor Rosenberg's new book titled UX MAGIC, which explores how designers can more effectively transform product requirements into rich experiences. You'll learn how to maximize the efficacy of your design so that it uses the smallest number of screens and minimum number of flow steps.

Speaker: Daniel Rosenberg, San Jo se State University


Finding Life on Other Worlds - 10/21/2020 07:15 PM
San Francisco Amateur Astronomers,

Are we alone or do we share our solar system and galaxy with other forms of life? And how widespread are advanced civilizations with whom we could communicate? Right now we don’t have answers to these profound questions. But scientists are in hot pursuit. The technology of searching for life on other worlds has received a level of maturity where the first definitive evidence of extraterrestrial life could come in the very near future.

Bob will explore three different roads for detecting life beyond Earth:

Launching robotic spacecraft to discover life on Mars or other worlds in our solar systemDeploying large telescopes to detect the chemical signatures of life in t he atmospheres of planets orbiting other starsUsing various techniques to pick up signals from advanced civilizations or to find evidence of their technological activities

This talk will be loosely based on Bob’s cover story he wrote for the September 2020 issue of  Sky & Telescope magazine and an accompanying web article about what kinds of planets might be the hosts for life.

Speaker: Robert Naeye, Science Journalist

SETI Talks - Radio Astronomy: The End of Big Dishes? - Livestream - 10/22/2020 10:00 AM
SETI Institute,

Big-s ingle dish radio astronomy observatories such as the 305-m Arecibo Observatory and the 500-m FAST (Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope) have made key breakthroughs in science, including the discovery of the first extrasolar planets. Recently, interferometric telescopes such as MeerKAT in South Africa, ASKAP (Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder), and CHIME (Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment) have opened up new observing windows. These experiments are all precursor to the SKA (Square Kilometer Array), whose construction will begin in 2021 and is expected to be the most sensitive radio telescope ever built. 

Why this explosion of radio telescope projects?
What’s the scientific reasoning for building arrays separated across continents?
What challenges do astronomers and engineers face?
Finally, what kind of science are these arrays useful for and will SETI benefit from their capabilities?

To answer these questions, we in vited two astronomers who have worked for years in the field of radio astronomy. Cherry Ng is a researcher at the Dunlap Institute of Astronomy & Astrophysics in Canada. She has used the single-dish Parkes Radio Telescope in Australia and the CHIME (Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment) radio telescope for her research on neutron star and fast radio bursts. Evan Keane, an award-winning astrophysicist, works in time-domain radio astronomy and has been the Square Kilometer Array project scientist since 2015.

Cherry Ng and Evan Keane will describe their past, current and future work with radio telescopes, the potential of future facilities for their research and the SETI search.

Hunting for infection, one molecule at a time - Livestream - 10/22/2020 05:30 PM
UC Santa Cruz Silicon Valley Extension,

Our COVID-19 response series continues, this time with a look at hardware sol utions. Healthcare professionals need to be able to get diagnoses quickly, rather than sending samples offsite to be processed and waiting for the results. Professor Holger Schmidt’s lab is developing technology that could give doctors compact instruments that can deliver test results quickly, and onsite. This optofluidic technology, invented in his lab, uses small silicon chips to guide light to either optically excite individual molecules or collect them for electrical detection with a nanopore. This allows physicians to assess if an infection is present, and how strong it is. These “labs-on-a-chip” detect viral RNA, antigens or antibodies, and count the molecules one by one, have great promise for rapid, low-cost, and accurate testing for coronaviruses and other diseases. This is another example of the advances and promise of the research on integrated devices and nanopores taking place at UC Santa Cruz.

Developing Covid-19 Solutions From the Ground Up - Livestream - 10/24/2020 09:00 AM
swissnex,

Swiss and American universities initiate projects that collaborate with citizens, communities, government associations, and corporations. With the common goal to find solutions for location-specific problems arising from the Covid-19 pandemic, they come together to share their learnings and insights on working with different communities. This event connects the Swiss hackathon scene to a local Stanford University initiative, focusing the discussion around how communities have (and continue) to participate in creating more resilient responses to the Covid-19 pandemic in a digital age. During the event, the audience is invited to participate in the process and share their unique pandemic experiences. Responses will then be shared as a tool for participants to create their own grass roots solutions specific to their local communities.

Swiss organization HackZurich has built the largest European hackathon over the course of the last few years. In March, they organized #CodeVsCOVID19 along with the Zurich-based University ETH. The hackathon focus ed specifically on finding solutions for the most pressing problems that Covid-19 had created in Switzerland. They brought together several thousand participants and matched them with over 100 mentors in the field of medicine, epidemiology, etc. For this event we are joined by Setareh Gharibi, Project Lead of Digital Festival & HackZurich.

Stanford University’s Future Bay Initiative was developed to help local communities in the Bay Area better cope with environmental problems. This year the students were tasked with finding solutions for Covid-19-related problems that were identified by the local community. For this program, we are joined by Cansu Culha who headed the modeling group that investigated the benefits of Covid-19 contract tracing by using data that was provided by local corporate tech partners.
