9th Annual EOH Technical Symposium

Wednesday, March 05 8:00 am - 5:00 pm - University Student Union (USU)
http://www.csunalumni.com/eohtechsym2014

9th Annual EOH Technical Symposium
“Energy Alternatives for California's Future:
Environmental and Occupational Health Aspects”
March 5, 2014 California State University, Northridge
Rising energy costs and increased awareness among the public are finally starting to force global leaders to research alternatives, and provide funding, to develop renewable energy production. Issues like global warming are becoming mainstream reality and causing world-wide concerns about pollution and consumption. In this symposium, we will consider not only the need for change, but also the environmental and occupational health challenges that will accompany large-scale changes to various forms of renewable energy production. Our proposed program includes the topics of climate change, renewable energy regula-tions and policies, sustainability considerations, fossil fuels, solar and wind generation, and toxins associated with energy production and utilization.
Program and registration details will be available early January 2014. For additional information at this time please send your request to eohalumni@csun.com or call Bob Finkelstein at 818-383-4171
Our program will offer 8 hours of Continuing Education Credits for CIH, CSP, REHS, and other organizations

Image for In Protest: the Shifting Paradigms of Collective Social ActionIn Protest: the Shifting Paradigms of Collective Social Action

Tuesday, September 17 - Friday, July 25 All Day - Oviatt Library, Tseng Gallery
http://library.csun.edu/blogs/goingson/in-protest/

Collective social action movements, whether spontaneous expressions of dissent or high-reaching attempts to change society, have been a part of American life since the nation's earliest days. Protest actions, in the form of boycotts, demonstrations, riots, property destruction, occupations, labor strikes, local activism, or works of art, have spanned the political spectrum, defined generations, and shaped our uniquely American identity.

We invite you to view items from the Oviatt Library's Special Collections and Archives that document dozens of distinct and significant social action movements over the course of the 20th century

Psychology Department Spring Speaker Series

11:00 am - 1:00 pm - Sierra Hall 322

New Research on Beliefs about Repressed Memories and False Memories

In this talk the author discusses the phenomena known as the memory wars, and presents on two of his recently published studies. The first part of the talk deals with an apparent gap in beliefs between researchers and practitioners about whether repressed memories happen and can be retrieved in therapy accurately. The second part of the talk deals with what could possibly explain some of the more unusual memories that have been generated in therapies that try to retrieve repressed memories. The author presents data showing that even when you bend over backwards to find participants that are most likely not to be susceptible to false memories, they in fact are. This could be seen as what Karl Popper would have called a "risky experiment"of memory distortion paradigms, an approach of attempted falsification that Popper argued is important in science.

Grammy Award-winner Bela Fleck is quite possibly the premier banjo player in the world. He has virtually reinvented the image and the sound of the banjo through a remarkable performing and recording career that has taken him all over the musical map and on a range of solo projects and collaborations. This performance with Brooklyn Rider is a match made in heaven. Brooklyn Rider's desire to use the rich medium of the string quartet as a vehicle for communication across a large span of history, geography and genres fuses perfectly with Bela Fleck's inventive imagination. This is classical music as reinvented and revived by five forward looking musical innovators.

This Valentine's evening the renowned Moscow Festival Ballet brings two of the most romantic classical works to the Valley Performing Arts Center. Often described as a "romantic reverie," Chopiniana portrays a dream-world where ballerinas bathed in moonlight dance around a young poet. The enchanting oeuvre is realized through the music of Chopin and the choreography of Mikhail Fokine. Shakespeare's tragic love story is beautifully danced to Tchaikovsky's majestic score and illuminated with brilliant choreography and radiant costumes in the grand tradition of Russian ballet.

Opening Reception: Saturday, February 15  4-7 pm

Curator Talk: Monday, February 17  10 am

Panel Discussion with Artists and Catalog Signing: Saturday, March 22 1 pm


Curated by CSUN’s Art History Professor Mario Ontiveros, this exhibition focuses on eight Los Angeles-based artists who reconfigure the genre of self-portraiture. Utilizing their body, their likeness, and/or the intimately personal, the artists encourage an investigation into representation that lingers somewhere between its construction in response to material, psychic, and sociopolitical conditions and those personas that one imagines, shuns and/or desires. Artists include Michael Alvarez, Yreina Cervantez, Christina Fernández, Harry Gamboa Jr., Sandra de la Loza, Shizu Salamando, Ana Serrano and Mario Ybarra Jr. A full color catalog on the exhibition will be available for purchase.


Gallery and gift store hours are Monday through Saturday, from noon to 4 p.m., and on Thursday, from noon to 8 p.m. For more information, call CSUN’s Art Galleries at (818) 677-2156 or visit www.csun.edu/artgalleries.

The Hip-Hop Think Tank, Department of Pan African Studies, College of Social and Behavioral Sciences and numerous departments and campus units invite the CSUN campus community to its biennial conference titled, Bridging the Gaps: Hip-Hop in the Age of Mass Incarceration and Deportation, scheduled for February 20-21, 2014 at CSUN. 

Bridging the Gaps will bring together members of the Civil Rights, Black, and Brown Power movements with Hip Hop scholars, activists, and artists along with  immigrants rights organizations to explore how they are responding to the prison industrial complex, war on drugs, anti-immigration legislation, and the overall criminalization of communities of color. By illustrating the interconnections between Stop and Frisk in New York City, gang injunctions in Los Angeles, the Papers Please provisions in Arizona, South Carolina, and elsewhere, and the growing militarization of the US-Mexico border, the conference will highlight the denial of human rights experienced by each of these diverse communities, utilizing Hip-Hop social activism as our primary language. 

The two-day conference begins with an opening reception, film festival, and talk by Hip-Hop activist and 2008 Vice Presidential candidate for the Green Party, Rosa Clemente, on Thursday, February 20th in the USU Theater from 5-10pm. 

On Friday, February 21st, the conference continues at 9am in the Northridge Center with an opening keynote by Dr. Victor Rios, Professor of Sociology at UC Santa Barbara and author of Punished: Policing the Lives of Black and Latino Boys.  The day will continue with a series of panels and workshops with Hip-Hop scholars, activists, artists, and community organizations, such as Dr. Shana Redmond (USC), Dr. Melina Abdullah (CSULA), Dr. Denise Sandoval (CSUN), Boots Riley, Olmeca, Cihuatl Ce, Jasiri X, Luis J. Rodriguez, the Gr818ers, the Pico Youth and Family Center, Immigrant Youth Coalition, CURB, Tia Chucha's and many others. The conference culminates with a keynote address by Elaine Brown, former chair of the Black Panther Party, followed by a closing reception and open mic celebration. We sincerely hope that you will join us for this amazing conference.

“The Good News on Global Violence Reduction, the Bad News on America, and How Interfaith Relations Can Help Shape our Future”

Presented by Professor Marc Gopin

Is violence in America an inevitable part of American life?

Although media reports suggest otherwise, the scientific reality is that violence across the globe has been plummeting in recent decades. Why and how is this happening? Research is showing that our values, attitudes, and thoughts have a great deal to do with our evolution away from violence. Dr. Marc Gopin will help us explore how our practice of and thought about Judaism can affect our global future.

Marc Gopin (Ph.D., Ethics, Brandeis University) is the Director of the Center for World Religions, Diplomacy and Conflict Resolution and the James H. Laue Professor at the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution at George Mason University in Arlington, Virginia. He was ordained rabbi at Yeshiva University and is the author of five books.

http://hiphopthinktank13.org

The Hip-Hop Think Tank, Department of Pan African Studies, and numerous departments and campus units invite the CSUN campus community to its biennial conference titled, "Bridging the Gaps: Hip-Hop in the Age of Mass Incarceration and Deportation," scheduled for February 20-21, 2014 at CSUN.

"Bridging the Gaps" will bring together members of the Civil Rights, Black, and Brown Power movements with Hip Hop scholars, activists, and artists along with immigrants rights organizations to explore how they are responding to the prison industrial complex, war on drugs, anti-immigration legislation, and the overall criminalization of communities of color. By illustrating the interconnections between "Stop and Frisk" in New York City, gang injunctions in Los Angeles, the "Papers Please" provisions in Arizona, South Carolina, and elsewhere, and the growing militarization of the US-Mexico border, the conference will highlight the denial of human rights experienced by each of these diverse communities, utilizing Hip-Hop social activism as our primary language.

The two-day conference begins with an opening reception, film festival, and talk by Hip-Hop activist and 2008 Vice Presidential candidate for the Green Party, Rosa Clemente, on Thursday, February 20th in the USU Theater from 5-10pm. On Friday, February 21st, the conference continues at 9am with an opening keynote by Dr. Victor Rios, Professor of Sociology at UC Santa Barbara and author of Punished: Policing the Lives of Black and Latino Boys. The day will continue with a series of panels and workshops with Hip-Hop scholars, activists, artists, and community organizations, such as Dr. Shana Redmond (USC), Dr. Melina Abdullah (CSULA), Dr. Denise Sandoval (CSUN), Boots Riley, Olmeca, Cihuatl Ce, Jasiri X, Luis Rodriguez, the Gr818ers, the Pico Youth and Family Center, Youth Justice Coalition, CURB, Tia Chucha's and many others. The conference culminates with a keynote address by Elaine Brown, former chair of the Black Panther Party, followed by a closing reception and open mic celebration. We sincerely hope that you will join us for this amazing conference.

Psychology Department Spring Speaker Series

12:00 pm - 1:00 pm - Sierra Hall 322

The Psychology Department would like to invite students and faculty to a presentation delivered by Nikki Sullivan this Friday as part of the Psychology Department Spring Speaker Series. Nikki is a doctoral candidate at Caltech where she works with Professor Antonio Rangel. Nikki's research concerns neuroeconomic decision making.

Many choices in life have two features: trade-offs and future consequences. For example, selecting carrots instead of a brownie may require self-control, but will pay off in the long run. Similar trade-offs exist when saving for retirement. How and why some individuals are better at these choices than others? This talk will present two studies in two domains requiring control: dietary and inter-temporal choice. In the first study, we combine a dietary choice task with a novel form of computer mouse tracking. This allows us to pinpoint when different attributes of the choice (such as the taste and healthiness of the foods) are being integrated into the choice processes with millisecond temporal resolution. We find that 20 - 40% of observed individual differences in self-control ability can be explained by differences in the relative speed with which taste and health attributes are processed. In the second study, we compare brain activity during an inter-temporal choice task across adolescent, adult, and elderly age groups to understand how monetary self-control changes with age. We find that discounting decreases monotonically with age, and that age-related changes in brain structure and functional activation and connectivity help explain this age-related increase in control.

The venerable traditional Irish band The Chieftains has been thrilling audiences for years. Formed in Dublin in 1962 with original group members Paddy Moloney, Sean Potts and Michael Tubridy - all of whom had a passion for the sound of the uilleann pipes (the national bagpipe of Ireland) - it remains one of the leading exporters of Irish music worldwide. Through the years the lineup has changed, but Moloney continues to anchor the group's sound along with Matt Molloy and Kevin Conneff and a large ensemble of remarkable musicians, dancers and pipe bands from around the world. It's a night of beautiful folk music and merriment with one of the world's most beloved Irish bands.

In the early 1960s, when Charles Webb wrote a novel called The Graduate, America was in an "age of youth." Young people were leading the way to social, political, and cultural transformation. Webb's novel, published in 1963, was groundbreaking in those changing times; reviewers unanimously praised his brilliant and innovative use of dialogue and comedic genius in dealing with controversial themes and the main character's lack of direction.

The film version, released in 1967 and featuring Dustin Hoffman as the lost but heroically determined Benjamin Braddock, quickly became a cult favorite and an artistic triumph, garnering multiple Academy Award nominations; it remains one of the top grossing films in history. The iconic film has been a touchstone for generations - representing the universal feelings of rebellion, confusion, frustration, love, and redemption honestly and hilariously, embodied by the characters of Mrs. Robinson, Benjamin Braddock, Elaine, and the additional cast of characters. Producing Director Susan Albert Loewenberg's presentation of this American classic is immediate, spontaneous, and features a first-rate cast.

Gilbert Herdt

From Ritual Sex to Individuality

This year, we are delighted to have as our honored guest Dr. Gilbert Herdt. 2014 marks the 40th anniversary of the start of Dr. Herdt's famous work on the sexual culture of the Sambia tribe of Papua New Guinea, which culminated in several foundational books, notably, Guardians of the Flutes (1981), Ritualized Homosexuality in Melanesia, The Religious Imagination in New Guinea (1989), Intimate Communications (1990), Third Sex, Third Gender (1994), and The Sambia (2006). In the US, he is also known for his path-breaking community based study in Chicago of self-identified gay, lesbian, and bisexual adolescents and their families, published as The Time of AIDS (1991), Gay Culture in America (1993), Children of Horizons, 1993, Something to Tell You, 2000, and recently, Sex Panic/Moral Panics, (NYU Press, 2009). He is currently working on a book "The Singers Are Gone", which is the story of how Sambia sexual culture has changed over this time.

The title of Dr. Herdt's talk is "From Ritual Sex to Sexual Individuality." The lecture will take place at 4pm on Monday, March 3, 2014 in the Northridge Complex of the USU.

“Energy Alternatives for California's Future:
Environmental and Occupational Health Aspects”
March 5, 2014 California State University, Northridge
Rising energy costs and increased awareness among the public are finally starting to force global leaders to research alternatives, and provide funding, to develop renewable energy production. Issues like global warming are becoming mainstream reality and causing world-wide concerns about pollution and consumption. In this symposium, we will consider not only the need for change, but also the environmental and occupational health challenges that will accompany large-scale changes to various forms of renewable energy production. Our proposed program includes the topics of climate change, renewable energy regula-tions and policies, sustainability considerations, fossil fuels, solar and wind generation, and toxins associated with energy production and utilization.
Program and registration details will be available early January 2014. For additional information at this time please send your request to eohalumni@csun.com or call Bob Finkelstein at 818-383-4171

Lessons From Clever Hans For Claims of Communicative Abilities in Nonverbal Individuals with Autism

Dr. Hank Schlinger, California State University, Los Angeles

Ever since Facilitated Communication (FC) crashed on the shores of the U.S. in the early 1990s, remarkable claims of sophisticated communicative abilities in otherwise nonverbal people with autism have proliferated. FC itself has morphed into other forms, including the so-called Rapid Prompting method. However, regardless of the name, all of these techniques have one thing in common: They claim to show that previously nonverbal people with autism are in fact highly verbal and expressive so much so that the diagnosis of autism is sometimes questioned. This is not the first time in history in which remarkable claims of communication have been made about nonverbal individuals. Perhaps the most famous case was that of a horse in Germany around the turn of the 20th century, named Clever Hans. In this talk, I describe the story of Clever Hans, including the experiments carried out by the German psychologist, Oskar Pfungst, which revealed the nature of Hans' cleverness, and its lessons for recent claims of remarkable communicativeness in people with autism. I urge the same level of scientific scrutiny regarding these claims as with Clever Hans, and suggest that all stakeholders in autism should approach remarkable claims skeptically and scientifically.

Under the direction of Savion Glover, Savion Glover's STePz is yet another exuberant celebration of tap dance to sound and sound to dance. In this dance production of Savion Glover's STePz Mr. Glover and his ensemble of dancers (TLHS) take tap dance to new heights and levels, while fusing traditional music selections of the past with his uniquely personal tap style and energy of the future. This production of Savion Glover's STePz exposes Mr. Glover's capability in all complexities of jazz phrasing, both bass line and melody, the wild improvisations, structures and deconstruction, from departure to return. Savion Glover's STePz will once again display the infinite versatility and virtuosity of Savion Glover's genius as a tap master.

Dr. Foster was awarded a B.S. in chemistry from Spelman College in 1992 and a Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1998.  Her dissertation investigates the interaction of surrogate polar stratospheric clouds with hydrogen halides, and was prepared under the direction of Drs. Margaret A. Tolbert and Steve M. George.  Her postdoctoral research examined the contribution of sea-salt particles to the oxidizing capacity of the lower-atmosphere. This work was conducted at the University of California, Irvine in the laboratory of Dr. Barbara Finlayson-Pitts.  She joined the faculty of California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA) in 2000 as an Assistant Professor, was promoted with tenure to Associate in 2006, and became a Full Professor in 2011.  Her current research focuses on elucidating the role of aged particulate matter on air quality.

ABSTRACT

The role of aging particulate matter on air quality is an active area of research.  Urban particulate matter contains polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) produced in incomplete combustion processes, such as the combustion of diesel fuel.  Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons are hydrocarbons that contain 2 or more fused benzene rings. Because many PAH have demonstrated carcinogenic and mutenogenic properties, the abundance and chemical transformations of PAH have been have been studies for decades in various media including soil, water and air.    Photooxidation of PAH on aged particulate matter produces oxygenated-PAH (oxy-PAH), including isomeric pyrene-diones and benzo[a]pyrene-diones (BaP-diones).   Little is known about the impact of oxy-PAH on air quality.  This paper will investigate the role of oxy-PAH on the oxidation capacity of the lower atmosphere through the production of singlet molecular oxygen. Singlet molecular oxygen reacts readily with organic pollutants in solutions forming peroxides that decompose to form hydroxyl radicals. Preliminary results show two isomers of benzo[a]pyrene-dione generate singlet molecular oxygen very efficiently with a quantum yield near one.  Moreover, the BaP-diones quench singlet molecular oxygen at a modest rate, illustrating that these compounds are not efficient singlet oxygen quenchers. These results suggest that the photodegradation of BaP-diones are catalytic sources of singlet molecular oxygen in the lower atmosphere.  The environmental implications of these findings will be discussed.

For over three decades, Doc Severinsen & His Big Band ruled the late night television airwaves. His reign began in 1962, and he became an American household name in large part because of the performance of his stellar big band as creative trumpet playing and big band leader on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Although this beloved television program ended its run in 1992, Severinsen's career continues non-stop. He tours annually, performing to fans who love and respect Doc and his big band sound.

The repertoire oftentimes include Ellington and Basie standards, pop, jazz, ballads, big band classics and, of course, The Tonight Show theme. The legendary Mary Wilson, best known as one of the key founding members of the world's most famous female trio, The Supremes, joins Doc Severinsen and Big band offering renditions of classic songs. Two great American performers, together on stage, this is a perfect pairing
