Hello Science Acceptors, 

It seems like a bit of a break has been happening in the smoke from so many fires throughout the west.  The respite we have had has been welcome by everyone I have talked to.  They aren't over and there will probably be more houses, memories, and even lives lost.  I have a bit of experience in fighting fires like this but I'm not going to claim expertise or experience in what has been going on or what is coming.  I have to admit that I find it a bit humorous to see people involved announcing that they have never seen anything so big, powerful, or destructive.  Of course they haven't, that's why it is so staggering to experience it or view it from afar! 

It seems that most scientists and media are willing to proclaim that climate change is responsible for the magnitude of what we have been experiencing.  Even organizations within the federal government are acknowledging climate change is real.  Of course the reason for or cause of this is still contested by some.  What do you think of when you hear "Follow the science?" (Note: some of the vocabulary and opinion may not be appropriate for everyone!)  As always recognizing good and bad information online is a challenge these days.  I'm always looking for tips on recognizing things lacking in truthiness.  Here's one I came across recently that I think is worth a review.  How to be more skeptical about what you read online

Aside from the fires and politics there was big news this week in science.  The announcement trickled out for a few days starting on Monday Oct. 5.  Some of the winners were disturbed in their sleep but none seemed to resent the interruption.  Of course I'm talking about the Nobel Prize.  There were quite a few winners here in California and even the Bay Area though the collaborated with people all over the planet.  Yet again a reminder of what goes on around us.  Congratulations to all of the winners and all of the people who worked with them to accomplish what they did. 
This coming week will again challenge you to decide on what you are drawn to attend.  Bob has dug up some more great presentations.  Here are some that are quite a bit different from the normal offerings…  Ocean Buoy Live Exploration: Cleaning and Servicing a CO2 Buoy on Thu morning, Complexity Weekend starts Fri evening, and Uncovering the Secret Lives of Antarctic Minke Whales - Livestream on Sun afternoon. 

Next week will present even more of a challenge.  You will note that the listings in our calendar get a bit overwhelming starting on Oct. 21.  That's because the 10th Bay Area Science Festival will run from Oct 21 to Oct 25!

As always there is so much to share with you and hope you share with others.  The other day I watched My Octopus Teacher.  I hope all of you get a chance to watch it.  At first I was a bit put off by the anthropomorphism in it but the photography won me over quickly.  This one is great for all ages, especially people who have never experienced the ocean from below the surface. 

You may have heard that space smells like something?  Have you ever wondered what it might sound like? 

I'd like to add a bit of personal comment here as well.  We rarely get much feedback here at the SciSchmooze.  All feedback is welcome.  This is an entirely volunteer project and we each bring out own focus or bias to our writing.  I think I can speak for all of us when I say that we celebrate science and believe it is the best tool we have for recognizing and solving problems that either threaten our future or can help enhance it by developing new ways of knowing and doing.  These days, politics has become the dominant topic in the news and life for many.  Rightly so, I believe, science has been turned to for information to help people make decisions and understand some of what is going on.  How important science has become can be seen by how many groups or publications are actually endorsing particular candidates or issues.  Many people think that the denial of science has brought us to the face of two crisis that are truly a challenge to what humanity and nature can look forward to.  Consider two major statements made by two major science based organizations Scientific American and The New England Journal of Medicine.  We will continue to celebrate science and share what we find with you both in spite of and in support of a better future.  So to both "Nitetoad" our greatest critic and "Rebbugs" one of our greatest fans, I want to thank you for your challenge and support. 

So now I ask the question.  HAVE YOU VOTED YET?  If not, when will you? 

So two final links for fun…  Ant-eresting: This Guy Quit His Job to Sell Insects is an interesting story about a unique business.  Bicycle Ballet is a beautiful story that makes me long for my bike days and dream of what some can do with such a wonderful invention.

Have a great week learning a bit more about this amazing universe we call home.

"The basic objective of science is to discover, understand and unify what's happening around us, whether in living things or inanimate things. Very often people talk about the scientific method, but I believe that the way of understanding in science has a great deal in common with the way of understanding anything. Yet there are a couple of very special things about science that are not part of its methodology really, but which are crucial to its progress. One of these is that if you are genuinely trying to understand what's going on around you there's no point fooling yourself, or for that matter, fooling any of your colleagues. Within the scientific community there is a tradition that anybody who fabricates data is completely ostracized. This tradition is one of the basic tenets of science and science had traditionally been one of the very special strongholds of that tenet. I wish it also applied to politicians and advertisers, so that they would ostracize people who willingly and deliberately fabricate data.
One of the nice things that is true of the Exploratorium is that people trust it. We don't "rig" any of the exhibits; the exhibits do not show things artificially. The natural phenomena are there and the visitors can ask questions of the exhibits, and the exhibits can then answer these because they behave according to nature."

Fluctuating superconductivity on a partially flat band - Livestream - 10/12/2020 02:30 PM
UC Berkeley,

Phase coherence is considered to govern the superconducting Tc in underdoped cuprates. However on the overdoped side, magnetic and optical evidence of diminishing zero temperature superfluid density are mounting in La2CuO4 cuprates. We combine magnetic and thermodynamic probes with angle-resolved photoemission, and show evidence of superconducting fluctuation substantially above Tc in another heavily overdoped cuprate family Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+d. With a sign-problem free quantum Monte Carlo calculation, we suggest that the flat band near antinode in can also enhance the thermal fluctuation and reduce the zero-temperature phase stiffness in addition to disorder effects. Sufficient overdoping is also shown to abruptly reduce electron-phonon interaction and strange metal behavior, exemplifying this regime as a promising platform to advance the understanding of the highTc mechanism.

Stanford Energy Seminar: Ali Zaidi - Livestream - 10/1 2/2020 04:00 PM
Stanford Energy,

In 2019, New York passed a groundbreaking climate law, the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act. The climate law codified Governor Cuomo’s climate vision, committing New York to among the most ambitious climate objectives in the world, including 100 percent carbon-free electricity by 2040 and an 85 percent reduction in GHG emissions (net zero) by 2050. The climate law also sets a legally binding requirement for New York to deliver at least 35 percent of all benefits from new climate investments to disadvantaged communities.

Ali Zaidi, Deputy Secretary to Governor Cuomo for Energy and Environment and New York’s Chairman of Climate Policy and Finance, will discuss New York’s plan to implement this ambitious climate agenda, especially in the context of COVID-19 and economic head winds. Zaidi will share how New York is catalyzing pollution reduction across all sectors of the economy, while elevating climate justice and climate jobs. Zaidi will also highlight the implications of New York’s implementation path for other jurisdictions at the state and national level

Overcoming Barriers to Engagement of Underrepresented Students in STEM PhD Programs - Livestream - 10/12/2020 04:15 PM
UC Berkeley,

Th e level of participation by underrepresented minority (URM) and female students in STEM PhD programs is low: in physics and astronomy URMs earn only 6% of PhDs v. 30% in the general population; women earn only 20% of PhDs v. 50% in the general population. I present research into why these participation rates are so low, highlighting the role admissions practices, including the use of GRE tests, play in preventing qualified applicants from underrepresented groups matriculating to PhD programs, as well as broader societal barriers to true diversity and inclusion in the academy. I will describe some alternative methods of conducting graduate admissions, including the role of programs like Cal-Bridge.

Speaker: Alexander Rudolph, California State Polytechnic Univ.


Slugs and Steins: From the Emergence of Planets to the Destiny of Black Holes - Livestrea m - 10/12/2020 06:30 PM
UC Santa Cruz Silicon Valley Extension,

Three most frequently asked big-picture questions by the general public are: 1) are we alone?, 2) what is going on inside black holes?, and 3) what happened before the big bang? While there is no shortage of philosophical speculation, scientifically-proven insights of these age-old profound and fundamental conundrums remain elusive. Nevertheless, they have stimulated rapid advancements in some subsidiary areas of astronomy over the past few decades. In this talk Professor Lin will highlight two frontiers of discovery in planetary and gravitational-wave astrophysics. After a brief overview on milestone observational findings in the search for extra-solar planets, remote sensing of their cradles, and solar system exploration, he will accentuate some paradigm changes in our theoretical understanding of how planets formed. He will also discuss how these new concepts may be applied to decipher clues and to extrapolate implications on the evolution of black holes from the recent detection of gravitational waves.

Introductory Class: Being a Tourist in the Solar System and the Galaxy - Livestream - 10/13/2020 12:30 PM
Osher Life-long Learning Institute, SF State,

You are invited on a spectacularly illustrated Tourist Tour of the Solar System and the Galaxy with astronomer Andrew Fraknoi.

* Tuesdays, 12:30 PM - 2:15 PM, Oct. 13 through Nov. 3 (Four Meeting Days)

* 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!

See website for registration details.  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

* seve ral 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


Whole Earth Seminars - 10/13/2020 03:30 PM
UC Santa Cruz,

The Perseverance rover on the Mars 2020 mission launched on July 30 and is set for a rendezvous with Mars in February 2021. The rover will land in Jezero crater to search for signs of ancient microbial life and select samples for eventual return to Earth. In this talk I'll give an overview of what we know about the geomorphology and mineralogy of Jezero from orbital data, a preview of how we might test current hypotheses for the geological and astrobiological history of the region with the rover, and an example of the sample suite that we might expect to return.

Speaker: Briony Horgan, Purdue University

If you are a 5th-12th grade student, undergraduate, teacher or parent, join us to ask these questions and more in a Q&A session

Registration at website.  Parents must give permission for children under 18 to participate. 


Brian Christian: The Future of AI - Livestream - 10/14/2020 03:00 PM
Commonwealth Club - Online Event,

Time and time again we have created artificial intelligence (AI) systems to help solve our problems, but what happens when the AI systems become the problem?

Artificial Intelligence systems have been created to help humans work faster, respond more justly, manage more and make fewer mistakes, but now the solution has become the issue. As these systems progress and become more prevalent, ethical and existential risks have emerged. Brian Christian argues that it turns out there is only so much AI can do before it becomes painfully clear that humans need humans. We need empathy and connection when determining bail amounts. We need doctors who know our names in order to feel cared for, not just machines that have downloaded our health data. Not everything can be outsourced, but so much already is and it now becomes a dilemma how to rein it in. What happens when our machines outsmart us, or an enemy outsmarts our systems? How do we realign?

Christian investigates these questions and more in his new book, The Alignment Problem: Machine Learning and Human Values. Join us for our conversation about what must change culturally and in the world of tech to ensure that humanity remains our north star.

Getting to sustainable energy systems while considering trade-offs, environmental justice, and distributional effects - Livestream - 10/14/2020 04:00 PM
Energy and Resources Group,

I will cover several recent papers: In Tschofen et al. (2019) we compute economy-wide gross external damages (GED) due to premature mortality from air pollution. We find that: GED has decreased over time; damages from farms are now larger than those from utilities; 4 sectors, comprising less than 20% of the national GDP, are responsible for ∼75% of GED. In Thind et al. (2019) we estimate health impacts associated with PM pollution from electricity generation by race, income, and geography. We find that exposures are higher for lower-income than for higher-income, but disparities are larger by race than by income. In Sergi et al. (2020a), we estimate inter- county impacts of PM from all sources and find that 26% of U.S. counties experience worsening health damages over time. Furthermore, 30% of all U.S. counties receive 90% of their health damages from emissions in other counties, and these damage-importing counties also tend to have lower median incomes. Finally, we compare the best technology options for the transportation sector (Tong and Azevedo, 2020) and the power sector (in Sergi et al., 2020b) when climate and air pollution consequences are tackled in isolation versus considering both aspects jointly.

The Hunt for Dark Matter in the Universe: New Experiments - Livestream - 10/14/2020 07:00 PM
Silicon Valley Astronomy Series,

Astronomers today understand that the universe is full of a mysterious substance they call “dark matter” (because it doesn’t give off any light or other radiation we can detect.) Dr. Shutt will discuss the motivation behind the multi-decade, world-wide effort to test the idea that dark matter is in the form of particles as small as a neutrino but as heavy as an atom. He will describe the experiment he is involved with, that uses 7 tons of liquefied Xenon to measure how these particles interact with normal matter. This LUX-ZEPLIN Experiment will begin taking data shortly and should provide the most sensitive test yet for this elusive ingredient of the universe.

Speaker: Tom Shutt, Stanford Linear Accelerator Center


'Picture a Scientist' - Livestream Film Premier and dicsussion forum - 10/14/2020 11:59 PM

An Interview with Dr. Ken Caldeira on Climate Change - Livestream - 10/15/2020 10:00 AM
UC Merced,

Interactive session with renowned scientist Dr. Ken Caldeira. All are welcome. Questions will be invited from audience.

Ken Caldeira serves as Senior Advisor, Climate Change for Gates Ventures and is a climate scientist at the Carnegie Institution for Science, where his job is “to make important scientific discoveries.” He also serves as a Professor (by courtesy) in the Stanford University Department of Earth System Science. Among Caldeira’s key contributions to science are his relatively early recognition of the threats posed by ocean acidification, his pioneering investigations into the environmental consequences of intentional intervention in the climate system (“geoengineering”), and the first peer-reviewed study to estimate near-zero-emission energy needs consistent with a 2°C climate stabilization target. He has also played a central role in helping to elucidate what our understanding of long-term geochemical cycles implies for the fate of today’s carbon dioxide emissions. More recently, he has been focusing on trying to understand what sorts of energy systems could facilitate a transition to a near-zero emission economy that will allow both human and natural systems to flourish. https://dge.carnegiescience.edu/people/kcaldeira 


The COVID Economy: How the Pandemic is Impacting Inequality and Local Economies - Livestream - 10/15/2020 11:00 AM
Post Carbon Institute,

The pandemic has sped up unsustainable and unjust trends in our economy. Tens if not hundreds of millions of Americans are struggling to cope with the economic fallout, while billionaires have only grown more disproportionately wealthy. Communities of color have been hit especially hard. Enormous multinational corporations like Amazon have further deepened their hold on provisioning of both essential and non-essential consumer products, as local businesses falter or close for good.

Join Dedrick Asante-Muhammad, Chuck Collins, and Stacy Mitchell for a reality check on these challenges and concrete actions we can all take to build vibrant, just, and sustainable local economies even now.

Ocean Buoy Live Exploration: Cleaning and Servicing a CO2 Buoy - 10/15/2020 11:00 AM
ExplOratorium,

Have you ever wondered how to move and service a full-sized scientific ocean buoy? Or what critters and seaweed cling to its underside?  Watch live online as we lift our one-ton, 20-foot-tall carbon dioxide (CO2) buoy out of the water and explore its scientific instruments and the organisms that have colonized the buoy bottom.

In this live online event, we’ll provide a close-up view of servicing and maintaining an ocean buoy, getting up close and personal with the animals and plants that have colonized its underside. You’ll have a virtual front-row seat as we lift the buoy out with a crane, check its scientific instruments, and catalog the biological community of native and invasive species that drift in with the tides of San Francisco Bay to make the buoy their temporary home.

On loan to us from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the CO2 buoy has been anchored between Piers 15 and 17 since April 2013, collecting data on water temperature, salinity, and CO2 levels in the atmosphere and in San Francisco Bay. Every year, we pull it out of the water to calibrate and replace the sensors and to clean off corrosion and the growth of marine organisms.

Is There a Future for Carpooling? - Livestream - 10/15/2020 12:30 PM
SF Planning + Urban Research Assoc. (SPUR),

In the Bay Area, carpools carry nearly a s many commute trips as public transit.  As the Bay Area region struggles to meet state-mandated greenhouse gas emissions reduction goals, carpooling remains an important alternative to single-occupant vehicle travel.  Prior to the pandemic, new options emerged to match up riders and drivers, and carpooling appeared promising as a cheaper and more environmentally-friendly mode of travel. But what role does carpooling now play in a post-COVID world and how can we improve its implementation while ameliorating health and equity concerns? Join our panel of transportation experts and explore the future of carpooling.

Translating Data into a Shared Language - 10/15/2020 05:00 PM
Magnimind Academy,

Being a talented data scientist who can program in multiple languages and analyze massive data sets is not always enough to get your work recognized by decision-makers. Often, we focus on building impressive visualizations and models only to find our audience confused about what we need them to learn, or act on, from our data. During my talk, I'll focus on the essential skill of being a data translator - the person who can take the intricate work of data science and interpret that for the average person. The most impressive data analysis is useless without communicating essential takeaways and offering up persuasive recommendations clearly. Thoughtfully interpreted data and analysis, expressed in a common language, opens the conversation up to far more stakeholders - and makes your work and recommendations accessible to a much broader audience.

Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History, Pacific Grove

Join us for a discussion of recent research on pesticide contamination of milkweed in California's Central Valley led by Sarah Hoyle. A research team including Xerces Society staff and scientists from University of Nevada, Reno, sampled milkweed plants from various landscapes in the Central Valley and analyzed them for pesticide residues. They found widespread contamination of milkweed at levels that could harm monarch caterpillars. Sarah will review their research and its implications for monarch conservation.


After Dark Online: OK With Decay - All That Remains - 10/15/2020 07:00 PM
ExplOratorium,

Organic matter, part of what makes up living organisms, can be defined as material in the process of decay. Though life may be gone, it’s not forgotten, as this matter cycles back through the ecosystem - creating new opportunities for life. Tonight, scale down to the smallest forms of life to discover how organisms break down and understand the journey they take to reincarnate anew.

This month’s After Dark Online is a get-together to fall apart. As autumn set s in, trees become bare, and the northern hemisphere begins to chill, we’re exploring processes of decay, entropy, and how things come apart, making way for revisions and new arrangements.

Less is not more: Earthquake source modeling case studies for risk uncertainties - Livestream - 10/16/2020 12:00 PM
institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics,

How do we constrain the unconstrained? How do we say something about a region where we just don’t have the data? That’s when we have to gather together all of the available information to try to string together a coherent story and an understanding of its uncertainties. It’s where your work comes into play, whether you intended it for our use case or not. Here we’ll look at two case studies: (1) Taking a look at the uncertainties, discrepancies, and data scarcity with respect to the Southern Middle American Subduction Zone. (2) Highlighting the importance of faults in risk an d the impact of their uncertainties with respect to Taiwan and Ecuador.

Solar System Dynamics and the Triggering of the Martian Planet-Encircling Dust Storm of 2018 - Livestream - 10/16/2020 07:00 PM
Tri-Valley Stargazers,

The Martian planet-encircling dust storm of 2018 began as a vigorous regional storm, localized within the Acidalia storm track, in early June of 2018 (Ls~185°). In typical Martian regional dust storms, dust may be lifted to altitudes of up to about 45 km; however, in the triggering regional storm of 2018, dust was lofted quite rapidly to altitudes above 70 km. Mars Climate Sounder observations of the Martian atmosphere obtained during the earliest days of the storm document the presence of an intensified, regional-scale, meridional overturning circulation at that time. We will review and highlight the MCS observations that support this conclusion.

The strengthened Hadley circulation revealed by the MCS observations is consistent with predictions made in earlier theoretical and modeling studies of orbit-spin coupling. The orbit-spin coupling hypothesis describes and quantifies an exchange of angular momentum between the "reservoirs" of the orbital motion and the rotational motion of a planet. In this process, the angular momentum of a planetary atmosphere may be intermittently augmented, or diminished, by torques arising due to the coupling. We will briefly describe both quantitative and qualitative aspects of the hypothesis. The deterministic nature of solar system dynamics enables the development of forecasts for future Martian dust storm seasons.

Recent work has shown that Martian global-scale dust storms preferentially occur at times when: 1) Mars is gaining orbital angular momentum, during the southern summer dust storm season, and 2) at times when the orbit-spin coupling torques are changing most rapidly. These two triggering modes account for the seasonal timing of all of the known Martian global-scale dust storms of the historic record since 1877. We will briefly review pertinent results of two century-long Martian global circulation model simulations that identify the expected consequences of the torques acting on the large-scale circulation of the Martian atmosphere. A strengthening of atmospheric meridional overturning circulations was noted, prior to simulated GDS events, in both of the prior modeling studies. The inclusion of orbit-spin coupling torques within Martian global circulation models thus clearly brings about an improved correspondence between numerical modeling results and atmospheric observations.

Speaker: Jim Shirley, Jet Propulsion Labs

Bay Area Humanists,

Covid-19 is a worldwide pandemic that is causing havoc around the world. The number of cases and deaths as well as economic hardship continues to grow. It is generally believed that the pandemic can only be stopped with the development of safe and effective vaccines. Over 150 va ccines are under development around the world. Approaches range from the traditional method of using inactivated or attenuated viruses to advanced genetic engineering technologies. Jim Barnett, Ph.D. will review these technologies and progress in the clinical trials of the most promising of these vaccines.

Uncovering the Secret Lives of Antarctic Minke Whales - Livestream - 10/18/2020 01:30 PM
Seymour Science Center,

Inhabiting remote, ice-covered areas typically inaccessible to researchers, Antarctic minke whales are one of the most poorly-studied baleen whales, despite being the most abundant. As climate-driven changes rapidly occur around the Antarctic, understanding the lives and habits of minke whales - and how climate-driven changes manifest in them - has become critical. With the advent of unoccupied aerial systems (UAS) and video-recording tags, in conjunction with traditional oceanographic sampling mechanisms, researchers now have the tools necessary to study these cryptic whales. Over the past three years, Ari Friedlaender has led several expeditions to study these whales and uncover mysteries about how these animals feed, interact with one another, and use sea ice.

Join Ari for an intimate look into the lives of these enigmatic whales both from above the ocean’s surface and below the sea ice.
