Richard S. Ellis – Let There Be Light: Finding the Earliest Galaxies

Following the initial glow that emerged from the hot Big Bang, the Universe entered a period astronomers call the `Dark Ages’, when clouds of hydrogen assembled under gravity and eventually collapsed to ignite as the first stellar systems. Can powerful telescopes look back and witness such a remarkable event? Deep imaging with the Hubble and Spitzer Space Telescopes, coupled with ambitious surveys undertaken with the Keck telescopes is providing our first exciting glimpse of this early period of cosmic history.

Fiona A. Harrison – From Spinning Black Holes to Exploding Stars: A New View of the Energetic Universe

The result of technological advances made over the last decades, NASA’s newest astrophysics mission, NuSTAR, is peering far deeper into the high-energy X-ray sky than ever before possible. NuSTAR is exploring the densest, hottest regions in the Universe, helping us to understand how black holes grow, to study the bizarre physics that happens near the strongest known cosmic magnets, and to observe the radioactive glow of debris left over from exploded stars.

Jean E. Ensminger – Aiding and Abetting a Culture of Corruption

How do we study corruption?  Follow the money.  Penetrate the networks.  Model the system.  In this talk we examine a large World Bank project right down to the village level.  We learn how an African cartel is born, nurtured, and propagated.  Through this case study we can see the process by which individuals, institutions, and ultimately entire states, get tipped into the vortex of systemic corruption.  What role does aid money play in this process, and what does forensic economics have to offer in both the diagnosis and the cure?

S.A. (Ali) Hajimiri – 1+1=3 or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Holistic Circuits

Most of the modern day’s technological marvels have come from putting apparently unrelated things together and creating something more than the sum of the parts. Silicon chips have come a long way from the days of first transistors. Today we can place billions of transistors operating at extremely high frequencies on a single chip. This has created a plethora of new opportunities in many areas that silicon chips could not address. In this talk, we will discuss a holistic approach to integrated circuits leading to yet further proliferation of such technologies into our daily lives.

Dennis M. Kochmann – Everyone Starts Small: How Metals Learn to Behave

Ever wondered where metallic materials get their unique properties from? Why are some materials strong and others fail quickly? Why can we deform some easily while others are hard to change? Why do some damp vibrations and others seem to swing forever? To understand why materials behave the way they do, we need to zoom deep into the lower length scales, deep into what is invisible to the naked eye.  Our journey into the micro- and nano-scales of materials reveals billions of tiny defects which in turn are made up of billions of atoms.

From mountain valleys to river deltas, flowing water and grains of sand conspire to create Earth’s dramatic landscapes. Earth is not alone; megafloods have cut vast canyons into the surface of Mars, and rivers of liquid methane actively carve the icy surface of Titan.  This talk will explore new insights into the mechanics of landscape evolution with implications for debris-flow hazards in the San Gabriel Mountains, land-use sustainability on the Mississippi Delta, and water on Mars.

Sarkis Mazmanian – Say Hello to Your Little Friends: How Gut Bacteria Can Be Harnessed as Novel Therapies for Disease

Microbes dominate as the most abundant life form on Earth, occupying almost every terrestrial, aquatic and biological ecosystem on our planet. Humans are no exception. Throughout our lives, we provide residence to symbiotic bacteria, known as the microbiome, on virtually all environmentally exposed surfaces. The vast majority of these microbes are harbored in the gastrointestinal tract where bacteria can outnumber human cells by 10-fold (thus, we are all 90% bacteria on a cellular level!).

Sarah E. Reismen – From Nature to the Pharmacy: The Chemistry Behind Modern Medicines

The origins of many modern drugs are small, organic molecules (known as “natural products”), compounds that are isolated from bacteria, fungi, plants and other natural sources. Although some natural products are isolated and used without modification – think penicillin! – others require careful reengineering in order to be suitable medicines. Key to this endeavor is organic chemistry, and understanding how to build molecules atom by atom with precise positional and spatial control.

Join us as he shares his ideas with Lawrence Crosby, dean of the Drucker School of Management, at our Crawford Family Forum. Bring your questions and get some savvy advice from the experts.

20% of Yelp Reviews are Fake!
 

20% of Yelp Reviews are Fake!

Of the millions of reviews on Yelp and other review sites, today we are reading headlines that many, in fact a good portion of these supposedly authentic reviews are FAKE. And that people all over the world are being paid to write these fake reviews. Anywhere from $1 to $10 per review. Yes, someone in India could be writing a review of a restaurant in Los Angeles, CA.

The number of fraudulent reviews on Yelp rose from 5% in 2006 to 20% in 2013, according to “Fake It Till You Make It: Reputation, Competition, and Yelp Review Fraud,” a report by Luca that was co-written by Georgios Zervas, an assistant professor of marketing at Boston University. Analyzing an additional 316,415 Yelp reviews of Boston restaurants, 16% were filtered and identified as fake, Luca says.

Read more here.

I use Yelp, but with caution, there are people trying to game the system both to hurt business and lift their own businesses.

And remember that Yelp has algorithms in place to “protect” business from fake reviews.

The deadline to register is October 15.

 

Photo Day is among many events presented by the private, non-profit Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association, founded in 1963.  For five decades, GLAZA has funded plant and animal exhibits, species conservation, capital projects, and education and community outreach programs at the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens.  GLAZA also builds and invests endowment funds and operates five essential departments on behalf of the L.A. Zoo: development, publications, membership, volunteers, and oversight of the food and retail concessions.  There are currently 73,000 GLAZA-member households representing more than 300,000 adults and children, the largest membership base of any cultural organization in Los Angeles.  GLAZA additionally boasts a volunteer corps of more than 800 individuals.

 

The landmark Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens, attracting 1.6 million visitors each year, is home to a diverse collection of 1,100 animals representing 250 different species, many of which are rare or endangered.  Its lush grounds on 133 acres feature a botanical collection comprising over 800 different plant species with approximately 7,000 individual plants.  Accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), whose members meet rigorous professional standards for animal welfare, the Zoo has achieved renown as an international leader in the preservation of endangered species and a conservation center for the care and study of wildlife.  Among its most popular habitats are the LAIR (Living Amphibians, Invertebrates, and Reptiles), Elephants of Asia, and Campo Gorilla Reserve, with the eagerly awaited Rainforest of the Americas habitat scheduled to open

soon.

 

L.A. Zoo Photo Day admission prices are $125 per photographer and $60 per guest until October 1, after which the prices are $175.00 per photographer, and $70.00 per guest.  Registration closes on October 15.  Catered lunch and early admission to the Zoo is included for guests.  The Zoo remains open to the public with regular Zoo admission available for non-Photo Day participants.

 

The Zoo is located in Griffith Park at the junction of the Ventura

(134) and Golden State (5) freeways.  5333 Zoo Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90027.  Free parking is available.  For additional information, contact GLAZA ([email protected], or 323/644-4703) or Mark at Paul’s Photo ([email protected]; 310-375-7014; www.paulsphoto.com).
