February 18, February 18, TuesdayJoin New York Times Best Selling Author and pioneering social psychologist Roy Baumeister to explore how the often misunderstood concept of willpower really works to affect nearly every aspect of our lives. In what became one of the most cited papers in social science literature, Baumeister discovered that willpower actually operates like a muscle: it can be strengthened with practice and fatigued by overuse. This webinar will cover how to build willpower and how to conserve it for crucial moments by setting the right goals and using the best techniques for monitoring your progress. However you define happiness, better understanding willpower and mastering self-control will give you the tools you need to reach your goals.  About the Speaker: Roy F. Baumeister is currently the Eppes Eminent Professor of Psychology and head of the social psychology graduate program at Florida State University. He grew up in Cleveland, the oldest child of a schoolteacher and an immigrant businessman. He received his Ph.D. in social psychology from Princeton in 1978 and did a postdoctoral fellowship in sociology at the University of California at Berkeley. He spent over two decades at Case Western Reserve University, where he eventually was the first to hold the Elsie Smith professorship. He has also worked at the University of Texas, the University of Virginia, the Max-Planck-Institute, and the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences.

Affinity February 25, February 25, TuesdaySponsored by the JHU Arts, Entertainment, Media, and Entrepreneurship Affinity Join us for a book talk, discussion, and cocktail reception with debut author of "The Prophetess," Evonne Marzouk (A&S '98.) At 17 years old, Rachel is a typical American teenager — a senior in high school, with friends, college aspirations, and a crush on the football player down the street. But when her religious grandfather dies, Rachel recalls the mystical stories he told her as a child, and finds herself pulled toward his ancient traditions. At her grandfather’s synagogue during the high holidays, Rachel is drawn toward a mysterious stranger, and begins learning with him. Unexpected visions and holy teachings lead her down a path she never expected, as she is called to join a secret community of Jewish prophets. She will meet extraordinary teachers, face overwhelming challenges, and learn to use her gifts to help others, as she becomes the woman she never dreamed she could be. Exploring modern adolescent anxieties and ancient mystical teachings, The Prophetess is a story about faith and sacrifice, promises kept through generations, and how, through the support of others, we can grow bigger than we ever believed we could be. Evonne will share lessons she learned over twenty years of writing her first novel, and how she incorporated universal book themes such as resilience, friendship, romance, and personal growth into a barrier-breaking story about growing up both spiritually and emotionally.  The book will be available for sale during the event. We will raffle off several copies of the book as door prizes too!  MEET THE AUTHOR Evonne Marzouk (A&S '98) has spent her career in pursuit of inspiring others, making a difference, and bringing Jewish wisdom into the world. She grew up in Philadelphia and began writing and publishing poems and stories as a young child. Evonne attended the Johns Hopkins University and received a B.A. from the Writing Seminars program, with a minor in Religious Studies. Evonne founded and is the former director of Canfei Nesharim (recently merged with GrowTorah), an organization that teaches Jewish wisdom about protecting the environment. Evonne began work for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in 1999 and has played key roles in work on the North American Agreement on Environmental Cooperation, the Minamata Convention on Mercury, and the Global Alliance to Eliminate Lead Paint. Throughout all these activities, publishing a novel has been one of Evonne’s lifelong dreams. She is incredibly grateful, and sometimes amazed, that the moment has finally arrived.silver-spring-md-growing-into-ou

Biotech Affinity March 02, March 2, MondayAffinity Programs and the Office of Research present Dinner with a Bloomberg Distinguished Professor | Mike Schatz, PhD Why tomatoes? The tomato is among the most valuable crop plants with more than 175 million tons of the fruit, valued at around $85 billion, produced globally each year. Recently, Michael Schatz and his colleagues set out to use long-read sequencing technologies, computational biology, and functional studies for finding and characterizing structural variants in tomato for future studies on everything from natural variation and domestication to crop improvement. In the abstract for Schatz's presentation, he and his co-authors suggested that the same strategy used for the tomato structural variant pan-genome study "will become the new gold standard for [structural variant] analysis in all species." In his research, Michael Schatz also examines sequence variations related to autism spectrum disorders, cancer, and other human diseases in order to reveal their genetic basis and evolution. He has also recently embarked on creating new computational methods for analyzing single-molecule sequencing, especially plant and animal genomes and transcriptomes, which are the sets of expressed genes in an organism. We hope you'll join us for an evening of education and exploration with a true Hopkins leader! Featured Speaker Michael Schatz is the Bloomberg Distinguished Associate Professor of Computational Biology. He is an expert at large-scale computational examination of DNA sequencing data, including the alignment, assembly, and analysis of next-generation sequencing reads. These methods have been used to reconstruct the genomes of previously unsequenced organisms, probe sequence variations, and explore a host of biological features across the tree of life. Schatz is particularly interested in capitalizing on the latest advances in distributed and parallel computing, especially cloud computing technologies, to advance the state of the art in bioinformatics and genomics. In a recent breakthrough, Schatz was able to create a hybrid software-based solution to eliminate errors in so-called third-generation sequencing. This makes it remarkably easier to compile, align, and analyze full-genome sequences. Schatz joined Johns Hopkins in 2016 from the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory where he remains an adjunct associate professor. He has received Sloan Fellowship, NSF CAREER Award, and Genome Technology’s 2010 Young Investigator of the Year. What's for Dinner?

Women of the Book: Rare Books from the Spiritual Lives of Women (1450-1800) From psycho-spiritual autobiographers, bi-locating nuns, and rock-star-status mystics, to the hidden careers of women printers and engravers and miracle-makers—this illustrated talk and discussion focuses on Johns Hopkins’ recently acquired “Women of the Book” collection of over 425 rare books and manuscripts on early modern nuns and “holy women” in Europe and the wider world, 1450-1800. The largest and most comprehensive collection of its kind, these incredibly rare and unique materials illuminate lives actively and creatively lived by early modern women within and beyond the cloister. Free from traditional family and spousal constraints, and wed to a spiritual life of the mind, these holy women changed the world and, through their unique access to print, permanently preserved their contributions to history. Enjoy some lite snacks and a glass of wine or beer while you dive into the history of these amazing women. Speakers: Earle Havens is Nancy H. Hall Curator of Rare Books and Manuscripts, and Director of the Virginia Fox Stern Center for the History of the Book in the Renaissance, at the Sheridan Libraries at Johns Hopkins University.

OutdoorExplorations Affinity March 21, March 21, SaturdaySponsored by the Outdoor Exploration Affinity Experience the diverse wildlife of the Elkhorn Slough, named one of the top ten wildlife viewing areas in North America. The Elkhorn Slough at Moss Landing boasts the largest remaining raft of southern sea otters on the planet. Come paddle with these amazing endangered creatures, as well as sea lions, harbor seals, beautiful floating jellies, and migrating sea birds. This is an excellent paddle for beginners in stable double kayaks. Duration: 3 hours, including a short on-land safety orientation What to expect? When you arrive, you'll meet your instructor or guide who will have you fill out a liability release. Your guide or instructor will then take you to get geared up, give you a safety talk, and then, accompany you to the dock where you will start your adventure. Afterward, don't forget to tip your guide! They work hard to ensure you have a great day on the water! What should I bring? What should I wear? Dress in layers and avoid wearing cotton, jeans, and heavy hiking boots. If possible, wear synthetic clothing such as fleexe or Polypropylene. Also, consider bringing sunglasses with a retainer, a hat with a visor, sunscreen, appropriate footwear (i.e., booties, sandals, tennis shoes), waterproof windbreaker, snacks, water, extra clothing for after your tour, a camera, and binoculars (bring at your own risk)! Weather conditions can change quickly on the water and you are better off with too many layers than being cold! You will get a personal flotation device, paddling jacket, spray skirt, and paddle. You will be in a closed deck kayak, no wetsuit required. Will I get wet? Capsizing is always a possibility. You will use a closed-deck kayaks and be provided with a spray skirt that covers the cockpit and helps keep water out of your kayak.  Always bring extra clothes just in case. Will I tip over? A capsize is a rare occurrence because the kayaks are very stable. Many people that rent have never been in a kayak before and have little or no problem maneuvering. The safety video and staff instruction will help you increase your stability and greatly reduce your chance of ending up in the drink!  Can I bring a pet? At Elkhorn Slough, pets are not allowed on the boats.  This is because the Elkhorn Slough is a sensitive habitat for sea otters and harbor seals that can be disturbed by our pets. Who can attend? For insurance and safety reasons, there is a short list of requirements: Children must be at least 5 years old to go kayaking. Children 15 years or older are welcome to paddle a single kayak. All participants must sign a release, and children under 18 must have their release signed by a parent or legal guardian. Alcohol/drugs are not allowed before, or during, your rental. Children under 18 must be accompanied by at least one person over 25. All renters must know how to swim. elkhorn-slough-kayak-tour

The theme this time is, "This Is Your Brain On Brains”! Accordingly, Facts Machine will be joined by neuroscientist, science communicator, open water swimmer, and flutist in two rock bands, Dr. Paula Croxson! Please, join us on March 25th at Caveat in NYC as we get caught in neural nets, celebrate Dendritic Arbor Day, and fight for neurite to party! MEET FACTS MACHINE & SPECIAL GUEST, DR. PAULA CROXSON, PH.D. As a research scientist at Memorial Sloan Kettering, co-host Emily Costa’s main focus is unleashing the immune system to kick lung cancer's ass.

This intimate conversation is intended for our participants who currently hold or have held C-level leadership positions.   Women Supporting Women| A panel discussion led by Lindsey Hutzler (A&S '12) Can you be professionally driven while also creating an environment of support for other women or are we in constant competition with one another? Through personal stories and professional experience, explore the challenges that can be unique to women in a male-centered professional world. Explore the ways in which can we support one another at every level and still be advocates for ourselves.   Power Within: Understanding and Managing Stress, Anxiety, and Insomnia |  Niyati Shah (SAIS '11) Anxiety, stress, insomnia share an imbalance of the nervous system where stimuli (overt and subtle) drive our body and mind into 'fight or flight' mode. Learn what triggers this imbalance, and practice with internal tools -- your breath and mindfulness -- to deactivate it. In this session, we'll work with a few controlled breathing techniques and discuss tools to manage stress, anxiety, and insomnia.  Carey Executive Education presents Designing Personal Change | Adriano Pianesi, MBA, Carey Business School Executive Education Designing Personal Change provides participants with the opportunity to uncover their own professional purpose. An excerpt from the Carey Executive Education course, during this hour you will learn how to use adaptive leadership techniques and design thinking to be self-reflective and challenge assumptions that may be holding you back. Join us to design your personal change and realize your professional purpose.   11:45 am - 1 pm Networking Lunch & Sponsor Showcase Connect with your conference colleagues and learn more about Friends of Puerto Rico, founded by Angelique Sina (A&S '14) and their unique partnership with the Carey Business School.  1:15 pm Afternoon Workshops Embrace the Outdoors: stay stress-free through play! | Brooke Buckley, MD (A&S '98) In a time of technology and virtual reality, have we forgotten the importance of play?

April 03, April 3, FridaySponsored by Lifelong Learning Do you often find yourself stretched too thin? Do you simultaneously feel overworked and underutilized? Are you frequently busy but not productive? Do you feel like your time is constantly being hijacked by other people’s agendas? If you answered yes to any of these, then practicing Essentialism is your way out. The Way of the Essentialist isn’t about getting more done in less time. It’s about getting only the right things done. It is not a time management strategy, or a productivity technique. It is a systematic discipline for discerning what is absolutely essential, then eliminating everything that is not, so we can make the highest possible contribution towards the things that really matter.
