Hello again Science fans!

Welcome to the holiday season, filled with Black Fridays, Cyber Mondays, and other days designated for special consideration.  I think the most important one is Giving Tuesday, November 29.  Given the results of our national election, it is more important than ever that we support organizations that promote Science Education and understanding.  No less than the future of our planet depends on their success, and resistance to the rolling back of years of scientific progress by those who deny things they don't understand, or even try to understand.  Please consider making a donation on Tuesday, and throughout the year, to organizations you trust and support.

Miami Herald columnist Leonard Pitts has published an opinion piece about fake news.  While it has a political flavor to it, it also applies to science.  I urge you to read it here.

We still have a lot of presentations and events for your to attend before the holiday break.  Here are my picks for this week:
  1. Nerd Night East Bay 48: Stoicism, Dark Energy, Health - 11/28/2016 07:00 PM in Oakland
  2. Dark Matter: Detecting Gravity’s Hidden Hand - 11/29/2016 07:30 PM in Menlo Park
  3. The Sea Forager's Tour Guide - 12/04/2016 03:00 PM in Pacific Grove
If you are a high school student (or you have a high school student in your family) and have an interest in Neuroscience, then you should check out the Brain Bee, an annual competition with the brain and nervous system as the subject.  The event is scheduled for January 18 at Cal State East Bay and additional information and registration can be found here.

Thinking of Tesla?  Not the automobile brand, but the scientist it is named after!  At this Thursday's After Dark at the ExplOratorium a 10 foot Tesla coil will be operating outside by the bay.  This is just one installation among many at this week's After Dark that would be worth checking out.  Details here.

Back in 2013, we here at the Schmooze held an event for you, our readers, where 20 of us took a tour ofo Nuevo State Park and the Elephant Seals who come there every winter to give birth and breed.  We're working out the details to do this again in 2017.  Watch for an announcement from us soon.  This event sold out quickly last time.

Have a great week in Science!

Bridging the resolution gap to improve the assessment of long-term energy transitions - 11/28/2016 12:30 PM
Green Earth Sciences Building, Stanford

Global energy-economic models, such as MESSAGE with which I work at IIASA, have proven valuable for assessing long-term energy transitions and their environmental implications under a range of policy and technology scenarios. However, the broad geographic and temporal scope of these models has required a trade-off in terms of spatial and temporal resolution with most models employing 5-10 year temporal intervals and large, often continental-scale, regions. This coarse resolution poses a challenge for exploring how fine resolution phenomena, such as water resource constraints and renewable energy intermittency, may influence energy transitions. Thus, there is a need for new approaches and next-generation models that enable the exploration of fine resolution phenomena within the context of global change research. Building upon my expertise in both spatially-explicit and global energy systems modeling, my research seeks to bridge this “resolution gap” in an effort to facilitate novel interdisciplinary research on energy transitions. As examples, two recent research projects are presented that highlight novel approaches for incorporating fine resolution phenomena into the assessment of energy transitions. These projects include the developments of (1) a reduced-form approach to account for the electricity system integration impacts associated with wind and solar intermittency in a global energy-economic model and (2) geospatial supply curves for biofuels with carbon capture and storage (CCS) using spatially-explicit modeling. Finally, I touch upon my latest research, which entails the development of a next-generation energy-economic model for the purpose of enabling linkages among global change models and thus facilitating joint research to better understand how (1) land-energy-water (LEW) interactions, (2) climate change impacts, and (3) heterogeneity in human development and energy resources influence long-term energy transitions.

Speaker: Nils Johnson, International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis


SOLVING BIG PROBLEMS WITH SMALL ACCELERATORS: FROM COLLIDERS TO MEDICAL DEVICES BASED ON LASER PLASMA ACCELERATORS - 11/28/2016 04:00 PM
Sonoma State University - What Physicists Do, Rohnert Park

Dr. Wim Leemans of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory will discuss the progress on building laser powered, plasma based particle accelerators where electrons surf on waves and can reach energy levels in a few inches that would conventionally require machines multiple football fields long. Although many challenges remain, this new technology is at the brink of offering a profoundly different way to build futureparticle colliders or medical devices.


Policies that Work: How to Land on a Low Carbon Energy Future - 11/28/2016 04:30 PM
Stanford University Energy Seminar, Stanford

Energy is used in every part of the global economy; powering our homes, businesses, factories, and cars. Meeting our country’s (and indeed, the world’s) climate commitments therefore means reducing emissions from every sector. Smart energy policy can drive down greenhouse gas emissions quickly and affordably, while stimulating innovation and economic growth. Alternatively, poorly-designed energy policy, no matter how well-intentioned, can increase pollution, lock-in dirty technologies, waste money, and prevent us from meeting our climate goals. Because the energy industry is capital-intensive, and energy infrastructure is built to last for decades, it is crucial to get these policies right the first time. So which policies will actually make a meaningful impact in reducing emissions, and how can they be designed to maximize their benefits? This talk will discuss three types of energy policies and how they can be structured and implemented to serve their intended purpose. It will conclude with a list of the world’s key climate and energy policies, and highlight a handful of real-world examples.


Nerd Night East Bay 48: Stoicism, Dark Energy, Health - 11/28/2016 07:00 PM

Visualizing Dynamics of Photosynthesis Using Super-Resolution Live-Cell Imaging Techniques - 11/29/2016 12:00 PM
Sonoma State University - Biology Colloquium, Rohnert Park

Speaker: Dr. Masakazu Iwai, University of California, Berkeley


Robust Emergence of diverse planetary systems - 11/29/2016 12:00 PM
SETI Institute Colloquium Series, Mountain View

Recent observations indicate that super Earths are common whereas gas giants are relatively rare. Based on the sequential core accretion scenario, Dr. Lin will discuss how various physical effects which may lead to the prolific production of super Earths, independent of the mass and metallicity of their host stars, and the marginal occurrence rate of gas giants and its dependence on the host stars' properties.

During their evolution and depletion, protostellar disks regulate protoplanets' dynamical evolution and statistically determine the average and dispersion of the asymptotic orbital configuration of multiple systems. Tidal and magnetic interaction between close-in planets and their host stars may also lead to observable properties which can be used to extract valuable constraints on planets' internal composition and structure.

Speaker: Doug Lin, UC Santa Cruz

Better End-of-Life Care: Using Video and Story to Aid Decisions - 11/29/2016 06:00 PM
Commonwealth Club, San Francisco

Why do so many Americans die in ways they say they don't want, suffering and tethered to machines? When Harvard physician Dr. Angelo Volandes had trouble explaining to his dying patient the possible consequences of her treatment options, he walked her down to the ICU. She immediately understood where her decision might lead, and it changed her outlook. Since then, Dr. Volandes has created dozens of powerful videos to support advance care planning and facilitate difficult conversations about end-of-life care. His ground-breaking work has attracted support from the NIH and private foundations, and his efforts have helped thousands of clinicians, patients and families have "the conversation."

Speaker: Dr. Angelo Volandes, M.D., Faculty Member, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School


Trees of Lake Merritt - 11/29/2016 06:00 PM

Meet us outside the Rotary Nature Center for this easy half-mile walk.


Dark Matter: Detecting Gravity’s Hidden Hand - 11/29/2016 07:30 PM
SLAC Public Lecture Series, Menlo Park

Dark matter is one of the most mysterious components of the universe. Yet it makes up 23 percent of the mass of the universe ... six times the mass of ordinary, atomic matter. Physicists have never observed dark matter particles directly, but we see their influence throughout astronomy. The gravitational pull of this hidden matter is the force that created structure in the universe, shaping galaxies and forming the distribution of clusters and voids we see in the sky. One of today’s great challenges in physics is to observe individual dark matter particles coming in from the galaxy and striking particles on Earth. This talk will present the evidence for dark matter and introduce one of the most ambitious efforts to discover interactions of dark matter particles, using tons of cryogenic liquid in a deep underground laboratory.

Speaker: Tom Shutt, SLAC

What Makes Owls So Special? - 11/30/2016 07:30 PM
Cubberley Auditorium, Stanford

Are owls really wise? The seductive blink of their eyes and slow turn of their heads certainly suggest deliberation and purpose. Wisdom, however, is hardly an attribute of these efficient killing machines. Rather, an owl is an incredible composite of exquisitely tuned sensors, combined with great muscular strength and an aggressiveness that we would call courage. The large head is mostly occupied with an extraordinary hearing apparatus and outsized eyes that leave little room for a fairly modest brain.

Why do aeronautical engineers study owls? How can owls catch something as small as a mouse in complete darkness? And why that peculiar snakecharmer’s movement when confronted with something new? Most owls are highly vocal, and many have a rich vocabulary; but why do some throw their voices so skillfully? Their near-perfect camouflage gives us a clue. To deceive predators, owls seem to wax creative: The burrowing owl emits the buzz of a rattlesnake from its earthen burrow, and the snowy owl drops out of the sky, as if shot, to lead a predator away from its nest. It is widely known that some owls are expert mousers, but some species feed exclusively on fish caught at night; others eat smaller owls, and still others pursue only insects. So what else makes owls so special? Nearly everything! And in his fascinating talk about this unique, intelligent bird, acclaimed naturalist Hans Peeters will introduce us to some of the secrets behind the surprising abilities of the owl.

Biomaterials and biotechnology - 12/02/2016 04:00 PM
Stanley Hall, Berkeley

From the discovery of the first angiogenesis inhibitors to the development of controlled drug delivery systems and the foundation of tissue engineering.

Advanced drug delivery systems are having an enormous impact on human health. We start by discussing our early research on developing the first controlled release systems for macromolecules and the isolation of angiogenesis inhibitors and how these led to numerous new therapies. This early research then led to new drug delivery technologies including nanoparticles and nanotechnology that are now being studied for use treating cancer, other illnesses and in vaccine delivery. We then discuss ways of developing novel microchips for drug delivery. Approaches for synthesizing new biomaterials, such as biodegradable polyanhydrides, are then examined, and examples where such materials are used in brain cancer and other diseases are discussed. Finally, by combining mammalian cells, including stem cells, with synthetic polymers, new approaches for engineering tissues are being developed that may someday help in various diseases. Examples in the areas of cartilage, skin, blood vessels and spinal cord repair are discussed.

Speaker: Robert Langer, MIT
