BloombergSchoolofPublicHealth HopkinsatHome September 21, September 21, Tuesday Brought to you by Hopkins at Home and The Johns Hopkins India Institute Follow us on Twitter to join the conversation: @HopkinsatHome, #HopkinsatHome REGISTER BELOW to tune in on Tuesday, September 21st, 2021 at 12 PM ET Please join the Johns Hopkins India Institute and Hopkins at Home for a panel discussion on the role of women in the legal profession and the legacies of socioeconomic inequality in India. Drawing from both literary and social science perspectives, the panel will feature JHU alumna and award-winning literary author, Sujatha Massey, and socio-legal scholar and critical feminist, Dr. Swethaa S. Ballakrishnen. In 2021, both Ms. Massey and Dr. Ballakrishnen released their books on women and law in India.  Ms. Massey released the third installment of her Perveen Mistry Series, The Bombay Prince (Soho Crime Press), a historical fiction in which one of India’s first female lawyers investigates murders set in the riots during the Prince of Wales’ visit to India in the 1920s. Dr. Ballakrishnen published Accidental Feminism (Princeton University Press), which examines how gendered socialization and essentialism, family structures and dynamics, and firm and regulatory histories afford elite female lawyers in contemporary India more egalitarian outcomes than are available to their local and global peers. Dr. Rina Agarwala, Associate Professor and Director of Undergraduate Studies of Sociology at Johns Hopkins University, will moderate the discussion.  Dr. Agarwala’s work focuses on how vulnerable populations, particularly Indian informal workers and migrants, assert their rights through social movements.  the-johns-hopkins-india-institut

BloombergSchoolofPublicHealth Virtual September 21, September 21, TuesdaySpotlight SeriesThe Power of Narrative: Why Storytelling Matters in Public Health  Storytelling is universal to the human experience; all cultures tell stories, whether that is through spoken word, written language, or illustrations. Stories can be told for entertainment, to share information, or to educate. The practice can bridge the divide between communities and individuals, help to make connections between lived experiences, and create the opportunity for more empathy. Where does storytelling fit in to public health? Can the power of narrative translate to public health education, practice, advocacy, and activism? Join David Fakunle, PhD '18, as he discusses why storytelling is a distinct pillar in public health that doesn't exist in other systems, why we need storytelling, and where it can take us.  David Fakunle, PhD, is a “mercenary for change,” employing any skill and occupying any space to help elevate everyone divested from their truest self. Fakunle serves as Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of Florida and Associate Faculty at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. He additionally serves as Chair of the Maryland Lynching Truth and Reconciliation Commission, the first state-level body in the U.S. chronicling and bringing justice to racial terror lynchings. He received his PhD from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in 2018. science-of-narrative

Odyssey Virtual September 21, September 21, TuesdayBrought to you by Odyssey September 21, 2021 - October 19, 2021 Tuesdays, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM ET (10 course hours)   I think of two landscapes—one outside the self, the other within. The external landscape is the one we see—not only the line and color of the land and its shading at different times of the day, but also its plants and animals in season, its weather, its geology, the record of its climate and evolution . . . The second landscape I think of is an interior one, a kind of projection within a person of the part of the exterior landscape . . .the speculations, intuitions, and formal ideas we refer to as “mind” . . . The interior landscape responds to the character and subtlety of an exterior landscape; the shape of the individual is as affected by land as it is by genes.  ~~Barry Lopez, “Landscape and Narrative”  This course offers an interdisciplinary study of the American natural environment and the role it has played in shaping American identity. We anchor our study by looking at the way ideas of the natural environment and the lands and waters of North America have been constructed throughout cultural history -- as kindred spirits by Native Americans; as a “howling wilderness” by the early European colonists; as a boundless inventory of resources that were "ours for the taking" by right of Manifest Destiny; as a school for the spirit by the New England Transcendentalists; as a precious inheritance in need of stewardship and preservation by 19th-century conservationists such as John Muir and Teddy Roosevelt; as a crisis of global warming, environmental degradation and Sixth Extinction by Deep Ecologists.    Philosophically, we explore the influence on early colonists of Biblical and Enlightenment thought, of the European Romantic movement, and the moral ambiguities of the American land and environment in relation to the slave experience and U.S. policies of "Indian Removal." We explore ideas of European Romanticism that gave rise to Emersonian Transcendentalism (America’s first homegrown philosophy), the competing theories behind forest management, the national park movement, and wilderness preservation and. more recently, the revival of Native American holistic values in ecological paradigms.    Beginning with Thoreau, who “went to the woods to learn to live deliberately, “ and John Muir, we read noted texts of American nature writing, one of America’s finest contributions to world literature. We'll discuss the bridging of the so-called "two cultures," science and art, in the work of writers Ed Abbey and Annie Dillard, paleontologist Loren Eiseley, and conservationist/activists Aldo Leopold, Rachel Carson, and Al Gore.  Readings Readings will be sent electronically to the class for each class session, not as "assignments," but as the basis for enhancing our class discussions. It is recommended, but not required, to purchase the following text. Nash, Roderick. Wilderness and the American Mind, 4th ed. Yale Univ. Press, 2001.

Healthcare Affinity September 28, September 28, TuesdaySponsored by the Department of Neurology and Brain Sciences and the Healthcare Affinity Join early career physician-scientists, Sarah Berth, Lindsey Hayes, and Brett McCray, as they present their exciting research on Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and peripheral neuropathy. This program will be presented on Zoom. A link will be shared with registrants in advance. MEET OUR SPEAKERS Sarah Berth, M.D., Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Neurology Sarah Berth, M.D., Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor in Neurology that specializes in neuromuscular disorders.  She received her B.A. in biological sciences at Northwestern University. She then earned her M.D. and Ph.D. from the University of Illinois-Chicago in Chicago, Illinois.  Her Ph.D. research examined the molecular mechanisms underlying HIV neuropathies. She then came to Johns Hopkins Hospital for  Neurology residency, where she also completed a fellowship in Neuromuscular Medicine. Dr. Berth’s research interests include understanding cellular mechanisms for degeneration in neuromuscular disease.  She is particularly interested in understanding how transport of organelles and autophagy (clearance of damaged proteins) is disrupted in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Lindsey Renae Hayes, M.D., Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Neurology Dr. Hayes is an Assistant Professor of Neurology and a neuromuscular specialist. She completed her MD/PhD training at Emory University in Atlanta where she studied the neuropathological progression of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) under the mentorship of Dr. Jonathan Glass. She then pursued neurology residency and neuromuscular fellowship at Johns Hopkins, where she joined the faculty in 2016. From 2016-2020, under the mentorship of Dr. Jeffrey Rothstein, she studied the pathogenesis of the most common genetic form of ALS and frontotemporal dementia (FTD), caused by a mutation in C9orf72. Her work uncovered new mechanisms by which C9orf72 dipeptide repeat proteins disrupt nuclear transport —the regulated trafficking of proteins and RNAs in and out of the nucleus. In 2020, Dr. Hayes established her own independent laboratory with a focus on the mechanism and regulation of TDP-43 nuclear shuttling and TDP-43 mislocalization, a major pathologic hallmark of sporadic and genetic forms of ALS/FTD. By understanding the mechanisms governing TDP-43 localization and function, she hopes to identify novel therapeutic targets for ALS/FTD.  Brett Andrew McCray, M.D., Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Neurology Dr. Brett McCray is a physician-scientist with a clinical and research focus on Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease, the most common form of inherited neuropathy and the most common inherited neurologic disease worldwide. He currently co-directs the Johns Hopkins CMT clinic and also manages clinical research studies for these patients. In addition to caring for patients with CMT and other neuromuscular diseases, Dr. McCray has a basic science lab focused on the pathogenesis of inherited forms of peripheral neuropathy with the goal of identifying common pathogenic mechanisms and novel broadly applicable therapeutic targets. His current work is focused on understanding the pathogenesis and treatment of CMT type 2C, which is caused by mutations in the calcium-permeable cation channel TRPV4. His team’s work in animal models of this condition suggests that available TRPV4-blocking drugs could not only be beneficial for patients with CMT2C, but also many other conditions in which TRPV4 activity is abnormally elevated.

Linking nutrition with agriculture has been a focus of her passion and work over the past years­––from working with local farmers and food suppliers, to promoting consumption of local foods, to helping resource limited families here and abroad access fresh, affordable food. Becky believes good nutrition for everyone relies first on a healthy food system. In the same way, addressing hunger and food security within the scope of agriculture cannot be separate from nutrition.  Becky is active as a board chair of Aids Orphan Education Trust, which supports a Ugandan organization serving orphans and vulnerable families. She is an avid runner and is passionate about all things vegetable—from soil to table—and loves gardening, cooking and eating. Raychel Santo (A&S '14), Senior Program Coordinator, Food Production & Public Health, Food Communities & Public Health, Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future Raychel is a Senior Research Program Coordinator with two programs at the Center: the Food Production and Public Health program and the Food Communities and Public Health program. In this role, she works on a variety of projects related to local/regional food policy councils and governance (through the Food Policy Networks project), the relationship between diet and climate change, urban agriculture, and institutional food procurement. Originally from Dayton, Ohio, Raychel’s interests in preventive health, environmental sustainability, and community empowerment began with her discovery of the sustainable food movement. As an undergraduate at Johns Hopkins, she immersed herself in academic and research pursuits to learn more about this emerging field. Double-majoring in Public Health and Global Environmental Change & Sustainability, Raychel directed her studies to better understand how pesticides, toxicants, and environmental conditions affect human and ecological health. She learned about the physical effects and psychological influences of our diets; how climate change will affect local, regional, and global food production and security; and the social and political implications of various food policies. During this time, she worked with the CLF as a student research assistant (2010 to 2013) and as a full-time program coordinator (2014 to 2015), gaining a more critical eye toward understanding the complexity of creating systemic solutions to our food-related issues. After completing her Master’s degree in Food, Space & Society at Cardiff University School of Geography & Planning with the support of the US-UK Fulbright Commission, Raychel returned to the CLF full-time in spring 2017. Raychel extends her passions to extracurricular life as well. She co-founded Real Food Hopkins, a chapter of the national Real Food Challenge student movement committed to bringing local/community-based, ecologically sound, humanely raised, and fair food to the JHU campus and surrounding Baltimore area. In addition to organizing food advocacy and awareness events, the group was instrumental in getting the University to commit to purchasing at least 35 percent “real” food by 2020. An avid gardener at the Blue Jay's Perch Community Garden, she can often be found there weeding, digging, and chatting on the weekends. She also enjoys cooking, yoga, hiking, and playing cards and board games. MEET OUR MODERATOR Lauren Blake, Biophysics PhD Candidate, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine | Co-founder, JHU Alternative Protein Project Lauren is a PhD candidate at the School of Medicine studying RNA biophysics in living cells.

Odyssey Virtual October 04, October 4, MondayBrought to you by Odyssey October 4, 2021 - November 8, 2021 Mondays, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM ET (9 course hours) In the last 4000 years scientists have toiled in their laboratories and observatories, at their desks and in the field to gradually elucidate the story of creation and evolution adding to its expanse and detail. Yet as marvelous a story of creation and evolution is, the chapters are replete with gaps and deep mystery; some perhaps impenetrable, given the limitations imposed upon us by physical law.

Odyssey Virtual October 05, October 5, TuesdayBrought to you by Odyssey October 5, 2021 - November 2, 2021  Tuesday, 6:30 PM ET (7.5 course hours) This course is an alternative to a writing workshop where participants critique each other’s writing: a practicum focusing on sentence-level improvement. Using a method the co-instructors developed called “the sentence-composing approach,” participants practice sentence strategies used by authors ranging from J. R. R. Tolkien to J. K. Rowling. In building better sentences, participants learn to do what successful authors do, and will leave each session with sentence-building tools applicable to almost any kind of writing--academic, business, literary, or personal.   Session 1 10/05/21   Description: To learn a technique replicating the structure of a mentor sentence by a recognizable author.  Objectives: Participants will analyze sentences by recognizable authors to learn the sentence-composing tools used therein to build those sentences and to compose sentences with those same tools.  Session 2  10/12/21   Description: The identifier sentence-composing tool is defined through analysis of mentor sentences by authors containing that tool and its variations.  Objectives: Participants will be able to use the identifier tool in various places and lengths within their own sentences.  Session 3  10/19/21   Description: The describer sentence-composing tool is defined through analysis of mentor sentences by authors containing that tool and its variations.  Objectives: Participants will be able to use the describer tool in various places and lengths within their own sentences.  Session 4  10/26/21   Description: The elaborator sentence-composing tool is defined through analysis of mentor sentences by authors containing that tool and its variations.  Objectives: Participants will be able to use the elaborator tool in various places and lengths within their own sentences.  Session 5  11/02/21   Description: The combo sentence-composing tool is defined through analysis of mentor sentences by authors containing a mixture of sentence-composing tools.  Objectives: Participants will be able to use identifiers, describers, and elaborators in combination within their own sentences.   Supplemental Materials  All materials are created by the Killgallons, provided during each session, then emailed to participants to use and keep. About the Instructors             The co-instructors are widely recognized as innovators in teaching writing through sentence-level improvement. As co-authors, they have written many textbooks used by teachers within and beyond the United States, all featuring their sentence-composing approach.  Don Killgallon, M.A. (University of Maryland), M.L.A. and M.Ed. (Johns Hopkins University), is a veteran English and writing teacher, and the originator of the sentence- composing approach.  Jenny Killgallon, M.L.A. (Johns Hopkins University), taught secondary English in public and private schools and was a writing improvement specialist for the Maryland State Department of Education and for the English Division of Baltimore County Public Schools.  Tuition Remission and Refund Policies Full-time JHU faculty/staff, their spouses or same-sex domestic partners, JHU retirees and their spouses or same-sex domestic partners are eligible for tuition remission. The tuition remission form is required.

Odyssey Virtual October 06, October 6, WednesdayBrought to you by Odyssey October 6, 2021 - November 10, 2021 Wednesdays, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM ET (9 course hours) Current US democracy has been fractured by polarization and tribalism. The new normal of today’s politics is being influenced by the mass and immediate communications of the digital age. In this course, we will examine the roles of polarization & denialism in current US politics. We ask, “How strong are the forces of reason, culture and history to influence politics?” Finally, we explore influences as they shape cultural and historical changes while examining and debating the ways in which the personal and collective realization of civic virtues and the serious, thoughtful and committed pursuit of the common good --that will benefit all members of society-- have the power to prevent the future destabilization of democracy. Plus the belief that the improvement of democracy will be our permanent task. This course emphasizes active participation, autonomy-promoting education, and reasonable discussion. Session 1 10/6 Introduction Objective: Understanding the main elements of US democracy. Session 2 10/13 Motivated Reasoning & Denialism Objective: Analyzing the psychology of motivated reasoning and emotional denial. Session 3 10/20 Politics and Economics of Polarization Objective: Examining the political and economic factors of displaced working people. Session 4 10/27 From Nov. 2020 election to Jan. 6 2021 Riot Objective: Discussion of the GOP attempts to delegitimize the results of the presidential election. Session 5 11/03 Weakness and Strengths of the US democracy Objective: Discussion of the realities and possibilities intrinsic to the US constitutional system. Session 6 11/10 The Future of New Civics Objective: Discussing the need for the virtues of citizenship Supplemental  Materials Suggested reading, It's Even Worse Than It Looks by Norman Ornstein & Thomas Man, 2016, 2nd Ed., Basic Books.

The rich archeological record left behind by the Olmec, the Maya, the Aztec and the Inca, have over the last few decades, given scholars great insights into how they used their environments and how in doing so, influenced the ecology of the Americas. The Maya in particular produced huge cities whose need for water and resources outpaced in many instances the ability of the environment to provide them. Students will explore the archaeological remains of these cultures from the early Americas through 3D models of objects, inscriptions and works of art and through readings aimed at building an understanding of the science of both past and present climate change. Syllabus Session 1: 10/7, Introduction to Climate Science and the Archaeology of the Americas Session 2: 10/14, Maya Civilization and the Paleoecology of the Ancient Americas Session 3: 10/21, Indigenous Perspectives on Environment and Climate amongst the ancient Maya, Nahua, and the Cahuilla. Session 4: 10/28, What can the archaeological record of the disappearance of classic Maya cities tells us about climate change Session 5: 11/4, Impact of climate change on the collapse of Lowland Maya Civilization Session 6: 11/11, How does the archaeological record of the effects of climate change influence how we think about it today. Supplemental Materials Students will be provided with readings for the each class as attachments a week before the lecture associated with the reading as listed below: Week 2: Twenty-first century approaches to ancient problems: Climate and Society by Jade A. d’Alpoim Guedes, Stefani A. Crabtree, R. Kyle Bocinsky and Timothy A. Kohler. Proc. Nat. Acad. Sci. 113(51) (2016) 14483-14491.

Odyssey Virtual October 09, October 9, SaturdayBrought to you by Odyssey October 9, 2021 Saturday, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM ET (6 course hours) Italy is one of the extraordinary shapers of Western Civilization. From Virgil to Dante, Leonardo and Michelangelo, from Augustus to Boccaccio and Machiavelli; from Pico to Galileo; from Pirandello to Ferrari and Fellini – great Italian minds have offered stunning contributions to the way we think about everything from aesthetics to government. Using a range of words and images—and melodies—this course will focus on key figures—both the well-known and the no-longer-familiar—whose work still influences our lives and our thinking, while at the same time asking the question: what defines “Italianness”—what is the essence of what makes Italy Italian?

OutdoorExplorations Affinity October 09, October 9, SaturdaySponsored by Outdoor Explorations Affinity and Hopkins San Francisco/Bay Area 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.  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 fleece 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.

Odyssey Virtual October 21, October 21, ThursdayBrought to you by Odyssey October 21, 2021 - October 28, 2021 Thursdays, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM ET (3 course hours) Hollywood loves lawyers. And Hollywood loves judges, jurors, surprise witnesses, smoking guns and falsely accused heroes, as well. Perhaps one of the reasons courtroom dramas are so reliable is that they follow a time-honored protocol. Whether they’re plaintiffs or defendants, we’re on the side of a plucky upstart who needs the help of a determined legal hand to fight injustice. Usually, it’s not just the characters being put on trial, either. It’s the establishment, the system, the country, the past, and the future. No wonder there are so many memorable courtroom dramas. Yale film professor Marc Lapadula will be discussing and analyzing a broad lineup of the best and most compelling movie entries in this genre. Movies will include: Judgment At Nuremberg, Witness For The Prosecution, Inherit the Wind, 12 Angry Men, Anatomy of a Murder, To Kill A Mockingbird, And Justice For All, The Verdict, The Accused, My Cousin Vinny, Philadelphia, Erin Brockovich and A Few Good Men. About the Instructor               Marc Lapadula is a Senior Lecturer in Film And Media Studies at Yale University where he runs and teaches the screenwriting program. He is a playwright, screenwriter and an award-winning film producer. In addition to Yale, Marc has taught at Columbia University’s Graduate Film School. He also created the screenwriting programs at both The University of Pennsylvania and Johns Hopkins where he won Outstanding Teaching awards. He has been invited to lecture on a wide range of classic and contemporary films across America as well as in cities in Canada, England and Mexico. His acclaimed presentations have been at many notable venues like The National Press Club, The Smithsonian Institution, The Guthrie Theater, The Commonwealth Club, The Cleveland Museum of Art, The Toronto Jewish Film Festival, The New York Historical Society and The Festival of Ideas in Mexico City to name only a few. He produced ANGEL PASSING, starring Hume Cronyn and Teresa Wright. The film premiered at The Sundance Film Festival and won, among many other awards, the grand prize at Worldfest Houston. Other movies he produced include MENTOR, starring Rutger Hauer, which premiered at The Tribeca Film Festival.

LEARN MORE ABOUT THE JOHNS HOPKINS BACHELOR OF ARTS PROGRAM IN FILM AND MEDIA STUDIES The Johns Hopkins Bachelor of Arts Program in Film and Media Studies prides itself on balancing a rigorous education in history, aesthetics, and theory with a diverse array of approaches to creative practice, allowing neither to take primacy but producing strong liberal arts graduates who are critical thinkers, creators, and scholars. Our graduates, like our faculty, are hybrids who lead in their fields: able to function in multiple modes of study and craft, and consistently interested and engaged in both. Helping students build bridges to careers in film and television through a variety of professionalization initiatives, including speaker events like this one with Dr. Knowles, is a major focus at FMS. The position of Special Advocate for Alumni and Outreach, currently held by Linda DeLibero, was designed to aid students seeking internships and post-graduate opportunities in the industry, grow professional alumni support networks in Los Angeles and New York, and create new professional avenues for both current FMS students and alums. Each Intersession, FMS curates a trip to Los Angeles for eight FMS undergraduate majors and minors. The focus of the trip is to expose our students to the myriad opportunities available to them in the entertainment business. They visit production companies, studios, agencies, and individual creatives working within film, television, and other media industries. Since the program started in January 2015, the involvement of Johns Hopkins alumni has grown to include more than 100 members in the Los Angeles area, and the growth of this alumni network has immeasurably increased the number of students who are placed in both internships and entry positions in the industry in Los Angeles and New York.

BloombergSchoolofPublicHealth Virtual October 25, October 25, MondayHealth Impacts of Intergenerational Trauma Traumatic experiences have lasting consequences on physical and emotional health. Whether the negative experiences happened during childhood, as an adult, or were single or repeat experiences, traumatic events can cause anxiety, depression, and hypertension, potentially leading to heart attack or stroke, among other physical and emotional health issues. What are the impacts of historically anchored traumatic events over the course of several generations? Join us for a conversation on how historical and intergenerational trauma impacts Indigenous communities, and how Native strengths, culture, and resilience prevail in the face of injustice. Melissa Walls, PhD (Bois Forte and Couchiching First Nation Anishinaabe) is Director of the Great Lakes Hub for the Johns Hopkins Center for American Indian Health and associate professor of International Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Dr. Walls is a social scientist committed to collaborative research with Indigenous communities. Her involvement in community-based participatory research (CBPR) projects to date includes mental health epidemiology; culturally-relevant, family-based substance use prevention and mental health promotion programming and evaluation; and examining the impact of stress and mental health on diabetes. health-impacts-of-intergeneratio

After much confusion and misinformation, there emerged a consensus that airborne transmission from very small respiratory droplets is the most important route for the spread of COVID-19. Each stage in this transmission pathway is mediated by complex flow phenomena, ranging from air-mucous interaction inside the respiratory tract, turbulence in the exhaled jet/ambient flow, to inhalation and deposition of these aerosols in the lungs. Given the emergence of the Delta-variant and the resurgence of infections in many communities, the importance of communicating infection risk across scientific disciplines, as well as to policy/decision makers, is more important than ever. Inspired by the Drake Equation that provides a framework to estimate the seemingly inestimable probability of advanced extraterrestrial life, I propose a relatively simple model for estimating the risk of airborne transmission of a respiratory infection such as COVID-19. The model couples ideas from fluid dynamics with factors involved in airborne transmission and predicts the effects of social distancing and facemask use on transmission risk. The model is designed to serve not only as a common basis for scientific inquiry across disciplinary boundaries, but to also be understandable by a broad audience outside science and academia.the-un-known-un-knowns-of-covid-

Odyssey Virtual October 26, October 26, TuesdayBrought to you by Odyssey October 26, 2021 - November 16, 2021 Tuesdays, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM ET (8 course hours) Daniel M. Stuart's biography S. N. Goenka: Emissary of Insight will serve as a guide to Goenka’s meditational practices and teachings. Yuval Noah Harari writes (in 2018) of his first meditation retreat with Goenka, “Since that first course in 2000, I began meditating for two hours every day, and each year I take a long meditation retreat of a month or two.”  This class will investigate how Goenka’s teachings and practices helped form a base for Harari’s work 21 Lessons for the 21st Century.  Harari recounts many of the effects Goenka had on him in the book’s final chapter, “Meditation.”  We will analyze Goenka’s influence on Harari in terms of Harari’s ideas, meditation practice, and writing process, with meditation being a major lens by which Harari shapes his works.   Syllabus Classes 1 and 2: S. N. Goenka: Emissary of Insight by Daniel M. Stuart. Stuart’s biography of one of the major meditation teachers of the twentieth century presents a nuanced view of Goenka’s work and influence and provides a representative collection of his writings, practices, and teachings. Classes 3 and 4: 21 Lessons for the 21st Century by Yuval Noah Harari.  A #1 New York Times bestseller. Harari’s work is a penetrating and stimulating presentation of today’s most urgent issues.  This class idea was brought together through my first encounter in 1974 with my first meditation teacher, Burmese teacher Satya Narayan Goenka, and the impact Harari's book 21 Lessons for the 21st Century had on me which helped to balance and renew me during this difficult past year. Readings S. N. Goenka: Emissary of Insight by Daniel M. Stuart, ISBN 978-1-61180-816-6 21 Lessons for the 21st Century by Yuval Noah Harari, ISBN 978-0-525-51219-6 Class participants should read through part one in Stuart's work, "The Biography,” Chapters 1 through 7, in preparation for the first night’s class.

ArtsEntertainmentMediaEntrepreneurship Affinity October 27, October 27, WednesdaySponsored by the Arts, Entertainment, Media, and Entrepreneurship Affinity Three scientists who moonlight as pub trivia hosts explore the science behind the séance in this Halloween-themed show featuring folklorist and astrophysicist Dr. Moiya McTier. Gather round the spooky flashlight for stories, games, trivia, and more! Special ghost, er, guest, Dr. Moiya McTier is an astrophysicist who spent her PhD trying to figure out where the aliens in our galaxy might be. She's also a folklorist who specializes in building and analyzing fictional worlds. Put those sets of expertise together and you get Exolore, Moiya's podcast that focuses on worldbuilding through the lens of facts and science. But Moiya's true passion in life is her cat, Kosmo. And also bread. MEET THE PERFORMERS As a lung cancer researcher, Em Costa studies the biological effects of poorly understood gene mutations, and so spends much of her time thinking really hard and pipetting a lot of pink liquids. When she's not doing that (or Facts Machine-ing, of course), you can find her cyanotyping, tending an impractically large windowsill garden, or obsessively Googling birds-of-paradise. Noah Guiberson (A&S '15) got his start writing and hosting trivia nights in the rugged pub quiz circuits of Baltimore and New York. Aside from recording and editing episodes of Facts Machine, Noah produces SCIENCE 101 at Caveat. A Weill Cornell neuroscientist by day, he seeks to answer the greatest trivia question of them all: How does the brain work? Dr. Rob Frawley is an alumnus of Weill Cornell Graduate School where he got his PhD in orthopedics and cell biology. A long-time NYC trivia host, Rob now works with BioBus Inc. delivering science to schools all over New York City with a bus full of microscopes, amazing samples, and funny games. Rob spends the rest of his time swimming and waiting for it to be Pi Day. This event is for those 21+ No outside food or drink is allowed inside the venue.  All attendees must present proof of full vaccination to enter. Proof can be via the New York State Excelsior pass https://covid19vaccine.health.ny.gov/excelsior-pass, a physical copy of the CDC card, a photo of your CDC card, or other electronic record of vaccination that includes name and date (e.g., some chain pharmacies have an app with this information.)

Odyssey October 30, October 30, SaturdayBrought to you by Odyssey October 30, 2021- All Day Session Saturday, 9:00 AM ET (start time pending) (7 course hours) Want to feel like a midshipman for a day, taking history classes in Annapolis? “Mini Academy” is back! On October 19, 1781, British General Charles Cornwallis surrendered to General George Washington, Commander-in-Chief of the United States Continental Army, effectively ending the military portion of the Revolutionary War, although limited hostilities would continue as the political path to American independence took almost three additional years. Annapolis played a prominent role in many key events both preceding and following the Battle of Yorktown as an emerging nation struggled to meet the obligations of the subsequent Treaty of Paris. The city served as the first peacetime capital of the United States, where Congress accepted George Washington’s resignation as Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army and ratified the Treaty of Paris. Congress also made two crucial appointments: Thomas Jefferson as a trade minister to France and John Jay as Secretary of Foreign Affairs. Join us as two United States Naval Academy instructors analyze the historical significance of the Battle of Yorktown and its aftermath, including how Annapolis connected the Revolution to the Constitution. This all-day Saturday seminar will include academic presentations, character speakers representing historical figures, guided bus and brief walking tours of relevant sites of interest, and lunch.  Note: The activities of the day will require participants to walk for short distances. The location and final itinerary with the order of the sessions will be sent to participants beforehand. Lunch (included with the program). Session 1: The Siege of Yorktown   This battle was a critical turning point in the Revolution; it convinced the British it was impossible to retain the American colonies through war. In October 1781, combined French and American forces under General George Washington and the Comte de Rochambeau surrounded a British army led by Lord Cornwallis, leading to the surrender of over 7,000 soldiers, a major part of a much larger campaign that carried the war as far afield as the West Indies and the English Channel as well as closer to home. Annapolis served as a crucial staging post for French soldiers camped on the grounds of St. John's College and was thus an important component of the defeat of the British Empire in America. Matthew Dziennik, PhD, University of Edinburgh, is an Associate Professor of British and British Imperial History in the Department of History at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis and is the author of The Fatal Land: War, Empire, and the Highland Soldier in British America (New Haven: Yale University Press, 2015).  He previously served as a guide at the National Colonial Battlefield Park in Yorktown and is currently working on a book about military recruitment in the British Empire.   Session 2: French Soldiers' Camp Guided Bus and Brief Walking Tour  On the way to Yorktown, French forces, including Marquis de Lafayette, camped in Annapolis from March 12 - April 6, 1781. Five months later, French soldiers en route to the battle stayed at a separate camp at St. John's College; dozens of them died and were buried on site. In all, over 1,000 French soldiers died in America's Revolution.  We will take a bus to visit the monument that was dedicated to their burial ground along College Creek in 1911 (the site is a short walk from the bus drop off point.  Session 3: The Treaty of Paris   Almost two years after the Siege of Yorktown, the Treaty of Paris was signed on September 3, 1783. Many believe this treaty simply ended the war, and it did, but it also kicked off a difficult and violent four-year period often overlooked in the history books, where a broke Congress could not meet its domestic or international financial obligations as mandated by the treaty. After multiple but ultimately futile attempts to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles, a key meeting in Annapolis that met as Shays’ Rebellion was underway convinced many key founders that the Articles of Confederation must be replaced with an entirely new Constitution. Annapolis as a city—and Maryland as a state—were center stage as the United States struggled to meet its responsibilities as a newly sovereign nation. Mark Croatti, MA, University of Southern California, is an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Political Science at the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, teaching courses on the U.S. Constitution, Comparative Politics, and International Relations.   Session 4: A Discussion with “John Jay”   John Jay played a key role in the evolution of the early United States from a regional alliance to a unified state; he served as one of the presidents before George Washington under the Articles of Confederation and then became Minister to Spain; he helped negotiate and later signed the 1783 Treaty of Paris that was ratified in Annapolis, where he was appointed Secretary of Foreign Affairs and subsequently became Secretary of State; he was a co-author of The Federalist Papers; and he became the first Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court after the new Constitution went into effect. “John Jay” will provide intriguing details of his most notable achievements and then take questions from the audience. Phillip Webster, MDiv., Trinity Evangelical School, has portrayed John Jay in public since 1998 and has written four books on the American Revolution.   Session 5: A History Lesson inside the Maryland State House   Annapolis played a prominent role in many key events both preceding and following the Battle of Yorktown as an emerging nation struggled to meet the obligations of the subsequent Treaty of Paris. After the surrender of Lord Cornwallis at Yorktown, Annapolis served as the first peacetime capital of the United States from 1783-84, when Congress accepted General George Washington’s resignation as Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army, ratified the Treaty of Paris, and made two crucial appointments: Thomas Jefferson as a trade minister to France and John Jay as Secretary of Foreign Affairs. We will hear details of these events and see exactly where they took place.  About the Instructors     Mark Croatti, MA, University of Southern California, is an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Political Science at the United States Naval    Academy in Annapolis, teaching courses on the U.S. Constitution, Comparative Politics, and International Relations.

A cadre of distinguished and compelling speakers and foot soldiers join us to serve as a living library—providing valuable, first-hand accounts of resistance and change. Learn about the underground work of everyday, sacrificing people who built the foundation for the civil rights movement to happen and continue today. We’ll be staying at comfortable accommodations, enjoying Southern hospitality with home-cooked meals, celebrating accomplishments of pioneers such as the Tuskegee Airmen, attending a musical performance, and becoming more empowered in our efforts to overcome adversity and support fundamental rights for all people.
