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 This Is Not A Self PortraitThis Is Not A Self Portrait

Saturday, February 15 - Saturday, March 29 All Day - Art Gallery (AG)
http://www.csun.edu/artgalleries

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.

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

8:00 pm - 10:00 pm - Plaza del Sol Performance Hall (PH)
http://www.valleyperformingartscenter.org/calendar/the-graduate-la-theatre-works/

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.

The Department of Anthropology presents:

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.

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.

 Sigma Xi Distinguished Lecturer

Professor, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry

California State University, Los Angeles

 Elucidating the role of aged particulate matter on air quality

March 26, 2014, 3 pm

LO 1231

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

Join us in welcome Dr. Leah Hollis, National Expert and Author of:

Bully in the Ivory Tower: How Aggression and Incivility Erode American Higher Education

After surveying over 175 four-year colleges and universities in an independent study, Hollis confirms that workplace bullying occurs at alarming rates in higher education. Further, this study calculates the cost of employee disengagement. Staff who have been bullied either seek to separate from an institution or mentally "check out" as a way of enduring a bully. In the midst of soaring tuition costs, no organization can afford the millions of dollars lost to employee disengagement due to a bully. After gathering data through surveys and several interviews with administrators in higher education, Hollis developed a model for a healthy workplace specifically for higher education, which is also applicable to the general population.

Diana Krall's extraordinary new album Glad Rag Doll (10/02, Verve Records) is an exhilarating and adventurous exploration of new sounds, new instrumentation and new musicians. It stars a singer and piano player, filled with mischief, humour and a renewed sense of tenderness and intimacy. Krall's "Glad Rag Doll" World Tour features songs mostly learned from her father's collection of early 20th century 78 records. On opening night of the most recent leg of the tour this fall, the Orange County Register wrote of Krall's risk-taking approach: "She may be mixing things up, but she's exactly where she should be." Of other dates, the Philadelphia Inquirer called Krall's voice "smoldering," the Seattle Times said her show was "breathtaking" and the St. Louis Post Dispatch called the musician "truly impressive" and the night an "exhilarating show - perhaps the best in St. Louis this year."

She was a news producer at Israel TV, reporter for Israel Radio and The Jerusalem Post, and a lecturer at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.Donna Rosenthal was inspired to write The Israelis when a CNN producer (her former UC journalism student) asked her: "Our viewers are confused. We have footage of Jews who look like Arabs, Arabs who look like Jews. We have black Jews, bearded 16th century Jews and sexy girls in tight jeans. Who are these people, anyway?"

The Oregonian describes him as "...an intense player who connects to the music naturally, without artifice, and brings a singing line to the cello."

Nat King Cole broke the pop barrier with his smoky, smooth vocals, stringing along a huge number of solid hits right after his first "Straighten Up And Fly Right" soared up the charts in 1943. As a singer, he was called "the best friend a song ever had," but he was essentially a jazz performer at heart. Even those later tracks crafted for the pop charts belie a piano technique, vocal phrasings, and on-the-mark orchestration that are indebted to his early roots in jazz. Ramsey Lewis and John Pizzarelli have crafted a tribute to the titan of fifties vocal pop, from his hits along with those singular tracks of sophisticated cool jazz that have influenced their own careers.

Commerce of Creativity Distinguished Speakers Series featuring Judy Baca

Judy Baca -- artist, educator, scholar, activist, and community arts pioneer -- has crafted an inspired career using the visual arts in service of equity for all people. After earning her CSUN Bachelor's in Art in 1969 and Master's in Art Education in 1980, she developed an international reputation for her integration of ethics and creative expression in educational and community-based art methodologies. Her C2 lecture, titled Excavating Land and Memory through Public Art, will focus on her artistic practice of community engagement and cultural development.


Ms. Baca has worked at UCLA's Cesar E. Chavez Department of Chicana/o Studies since 1996.  She founded the first City of Los Angeles Mural Program, which evolved into the community arts organization known as the Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARC).  She continues to serve as the artistic director at the UCLA@SPARC Cesar Chavez Digital/Mural Lab, employing digital technology to co-create collaborative mural designs.

All students, faculty and staff are invited to attend this free lecture, followed by a Q&A.
