The Social Life of DNA

April 29th, 2016

The Social Life of DNA
Event on 2016-06-09 19:00:00
We know DNA is a master key that unlocks medical and forensic secrets, but its genealogical life is both revelatory and endlessly fascinating. Tracing genealogy is now the second-most popular hobby amongst Americans, as well as the second-most visited online category. The tsunami of interest in genetic ancestry tracing from the African American community has been especially overwhelming. Alondra Nelson has studied this phenomenon deeply for over a decade. Weaving together keenly observed interactions with root-seekers, alongside historical details, she shows that genetic genealogy is a new tool for addressing old and enduring issues. In The Social Life of DNA, Nelson takes us on an unprecedented journey into how the double helix has wound its way into the heart of the most urgent contemporary social issues around race. Alondra Nelson is Dean of Social Science and professor of sociology and gender studies at Columbia University, where she was formerly director of the Institute for Research on Women, Gender, and Sexuality. Dean Nelson is also the founding co-director of the Columbia's campus-wide Women's Gender, and Sexuality Studies Council. Prior to joining the Columbia faculty in 2009, she was on the faculty of Yale University and received its Poorvu Award for teaching excellence. Nelson’s research examines the intersections of science, medicine, and inequality. Her books include Genetics and the Unsettled Past: The Collision of DNA, Race, and History; Technicolor: Race, Technology, and Everyday Life; and Body and Soul: The Black Panther Party and the Fight against Medical Discrimination; which was recognized with four scholarly prizes, including the Mirra Komarovsky Book Award. Her most recent book is The Social Life of DNA: Race, Reparations, and Reconciliation after the Genome.  Chair-elect of the Science, Knowledge and Technology Section of the American Sociological Association, she has appeared an expert guest on "StarTalk with Neil deGrasse Tyson." Dean Nelson is a member of the NSF-funded Council on Big Data, Ethics, and Society, sits on the editorial boards of Social Studies of Science and Public Culture, and serves on the board of advisors of the Data & Society Research Institute. Her essays, reviews, and commentary have appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, Science, Boston Globe, and on National Public Radio.

Senado / Senate

April 28th, 2016

Some cool Senate images:

Senado / Senate
Senate
Image by Marcio Cabral de Moura
Ottawa, a capital do Canadá.
O Senado do Canadá (em inglês Canadian Senate; em francês Sénat du Canada) é um componente do Parlamento do Canadá, que também inclui o monarca do Reino Unido (representado pelo governador-geral) e a Câmara dos Comuns do Canadá. O Senado canadense é composta por 105 membros que são indicados pelo primeiro-ministro do Canadá, e aprovados simbolicamente pelo governador-geral. As posições no Senado são divididas igualmente entre Ontário, Quebec, as províncias marítimas (Ilha do Príncipe Eduardo, Nova Brunswick e Nova Escócia) e as províncias do oeste canadense (Alberta, Colúmbia Britânica, Manitoba e Saskatchewan). O número de posições dado a Terra Nova e Labrador, bem como os territórios de Nunavut, Territórios do Noroeste e Yukon, são dados à parte destas divisões regionais. Os senadores ficam no cargo até a idade de 75 anos.

Popularmente conhecida como "Câmara Superior" (Upper House), o Senado canadense é muito menos poderosa do que a Câmara dos Comuns, a "Câmara Inferior" (Lower House). Embora a aprovação da Câmara dos Comuns e do Senado seja necessária para legislação, o Senado raramente rejeita leis criadas e aprovadas pela Câmara dos Comuns – cujos membros são democraticamente eleitos. O Governo do Canadá está nas mãos da Câmara dos Comuns – o primeiro-ministro do Canadá apenas permanece em ofício quando possui o suporte da maioria da Câmara dos Comuns. O Senado não possui tal influência, e não exerce tal poder no governo do país.

Os membros do Senado realizam encontros na Parliament Hill, em Ottawa, Ontário.

Ottawa, Canadian capital
In the east wing of the Centre Block is the Senate chamber, in which are the thrones for the Canadian monarch and her consort, or for the federal viceroy and his or her consort, and from which either the sovereign or the governor general gives the Speech from the Throne, and grants Royal Assent to bills passed by parliament. The senators themselves sit in the chamber, arranged so that those belonging to the governing party are to the right of the Speaker of the Senate, and the opposition to the speaker’s left.

The overall colour in the Senate chamber is red, seen in the upholstery, carpeting, and draperies, and reflecting the colour scheme of the House of Lords in the United Kingdom; red was a more royal colour, associated with the crown and hereditary peers. Capping the room is a gilt ceiling with deep octagonal coffers, each filled with heraldic symbols, including maple leafs, fleur-de-lis, lions rampant, clàrsach, Welsh Dragons, and lions passant. This plane rests on six pairs and four single pilasters, each of which is capped by a caryatid, and between which are clerestory windows. Below the windows is a continuous architrave, broken only by baldachins at the base of each of the above pilasters.

On the east and west walls of the chamber are eight murals depicting scenes from the First World War; painted in between 1916 and 1920, they were originally part of the more than 1,000 piece Canadian War Memorials Fund, founded by The Lord Beaverbrook, and were intended to hang in a specific memorial structure. But the project never eventuated, and the works were stored at the National Gallery of Canada, until, in 1921, parliament requested some of the collection’s oil paintings on loan for display in the Centre Block, and the murals have remained in the Senate chamber ever since. Edgar Bundy’s Landing of the First Canadian Division at Saint-Nazaire, 1915, depicts the first landing of Canadian troops in France, at Saint-Nazaire, led off the Novian by the pipe band of the Black Watch (Royal Highland Regiment) of Canada, and watched by officers, troops, and townspeople; Algernon Talmage painted A Mobile Veterinary Unit in France, showing a scene on the Cambrai front, where a Canadian Mobile Veterinary Unit is taking wounded horses to an evacuating station; Railway Construction in France was painted by Leonard Richmond to show the construction of a railway by the Canadian Overseas Railway Construction Corps, in the deepest trench in France; James Kerr-Lawson was commissioned by the Canadian War Memorials Fund to create Arras, the Dead City, which depicts the ruins of Arras Cathedral as they were in 1917, as well as The Cloth Hall, Ypres, a painting of the destroyed, 600 year old Cloth Hall in Ypres; Claire Atwood’s On Leave documents – as battlefield scenes were thought inappropriate subject matter for female artists – the home front activities of the Canadian Expeditionary Force at a YMCA canteen in one of London’s train stations as they await their train to the battlefront; The Watch on the Rhine (The Last Phase) was painted by Sir William Rothenstein to symbolically represent the defeat of Germany, with a British howitzer facing across the Rhine, and old and new Germany embodied in the ancient hills and factory chimney; and Sir George Clausen’s Returning to the Reconquered Land was painted to illustrate agricultural land behind the front lines in France, and shows people returning to their destroyed homes following the armistice.

Football Pioneers Headline 6th Annual Shirley Povich Symposium

April 28th, 2016

Check out these Washington Radio images:

Football Pioneers Headline 6th Annual Shirley Povich Symposium
Washington Radio
Image by Merrill College of Journalism Press Releases
COLLEGE PARK, Md. – NFL great Bobby Mitchell, who integrated the Washington Redskins, and Darryl Hill, who did the same for the University of Maryland’s football team, will be featured in the sixth annual Shirley Povich Symposium, Wednesday, November 2, at 7:00 p.m. in the Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center at the University of Maryland.

Mitchell, a Pro Football Hall of Famer, has been celebrated as one of the most significant players in Redskins’ history. Hill, who transferred to Maryland from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1961, was the first African-American to play varsity football at Maryland in 1962, and the first African-American to play in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
"To have these two outstanding individuals participating at this year’s Povich Symposium is a very special moment, symbolizing the 50th anniversary of the integration of both teams," said Kevin Klose, Dean of the Philip Merrill College of Journalism.

Mitchell, who retired from the NFL in 1969, became the Redskins’ director of college scouting and assistant general manager. He and his wife Gwen live in Washington. Hill, now a businessman, played briefly in the NFL. He lives in Prince George’s County, MD.

This year’s panel also includes retired NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue, Maryland Athletic Director Kevin Anderson, film documentarian Theresa Moore, ESPN radio and television commentator Scott Van Pelt, and ESPN and ABC commentator Michael Wilbon, former sports columnist of The Washington Post. Television host Maury Povich, son of the late Washington Post columnist Shirley Povich for whom the symposium is named, will moderate. The event is free and open to the public.

Shirley Povich reported many of the 20th century’s most important sports events during a 75-year Washington Post career that ended with his death in June 1998. His work conveyed his sense that sports often reflected and resulted in wider societal changes.

Typical of Povich’s literary skill and social sensibility was his description of Cleveland Browns star Jim Brown’s 1960 performance against the all-white Redskins: "Jim Brown integrated the Redskins’ goal line with more than deliberate speed, perhaps exceeding the Supreme Court decree. Brown fled the 25 yards like a man in an uncommon hurry, and the Redskins’ goal line, at least, became interracial."

The Philip Merrill College of Journalism is a nationally recognized leader in journalism education, with an acclaimed faculty teaching an innovative curriculum in the professional practice of journalism and scholarly research in journalism.

Live and Streaming Event:

UMTV – The University of Maryland’s cable TV station – will carry the Povich SYMPOSIUM LIVE in Prince George’s and Montgomery Counties. On campus, UMTV is on channel 38. Comcast customers can watch on Channel 73 in Prince George’s County and on Channel 2 in Montgomery County. On Verizon, the event will be on Channel 40 in both counties.
