The Cookers

Kate Buchanan Room
The Redwood Jazz Alliance and the HSU Music Department present The Cookers. This jazz supergroup of legendary players has been called a "dream team" by the New York Times and the Boston Herald states, “Player for player, there’s no better working band in jazz than The Cookers.” Between them, the veterans who make up this group have played with just about every jazz legend of the last half-century: Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Art Blakey, Max Roach, Horace Silver, Jackie McLean, Herbie Hancock, Freddie Hubbard, Wayne Shorter, Joe Henderson, Lee Morgan, Dexter Gordon, Dizzy Gillespie, Roy Haynes...and that’s just a partial list. But The Cookers are no “ghost band.” They play the sort of driving hard-bop that is the foundation of modern jazz, but their talent and experience generate new energy that extends rather than relives the tradition.

Science on Tap - Astrobiology: More than the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence

Blondies Food and Drink
Dr. Tyler Mitchell, Department of Physics and Astronomy

With the recent discovery of over 1000 planets in systems other than our own, and the next-generation of spectroscopic instruments, the human race may be on the verge of finding compelling evidence for extraterrestrial life. These discoveries, along with the surprising discovery of vast reservoirs of liquid water in the outer solar system, have spawned the burgeoning field of astrobiology. Astrobiology is a multi-disciplinary approach to understanding life in the Universe. It includes geological, astrophysical, chemical, and biological studies of where and how life may have arisen here on Earth and how it survived and evolved over the last 3.5 billion years. Astrobiology is also the study of habitable environments which provide the conditions and ingredients necessary for life. The study of possible environments ranges from large-scale studies of galactic dynamics and evolution to small-scale studies of chemical gradients. I’ll discuss many of these various approaches and highlight some of their findings. I’ll then discuss some of the most likely places to find life, here in our own solar system as well as throughout the galaxy.

Excellence in Teaching Lecture

Van Duzer Theater
Maral Attallah, recipient of the 2013/2014 Humboldt State University Excellence in Teaching Award for faculty lecturer, presents "The Stories We (Don't) Tell: Re-writing Collective Memory and Identity."

Attallah is a lecturer in the Department of Critical Race, Gender & Sexuality Studies. Her areas of specialization include genocide studies, race and ethnic relations, and identity politics.

How do the stories we tell about ourselves help shape who we are and how others see us? What role does storytelling have in shaping history? When stories are valued they are seen as "authentic," and that presumed authenticity influences memory and identity.

It is often the stories we don't hear, the ones we don't share or that are pushed to the margins, that could help us move towards empathic reconciliation in times of widespread empathic collapse. Through stories ranging from family traditions to civil rights struggles to the Armenian Genocide, Professor Attallah will address the power of telling our stories.

Scaling Renewable Energy: A Perspective from Google

Behavioral and Social Sciences Building
HSU's Sustainable Futures Speaker Series presents “Scaling Renewable Energy: A Perspective from Google,” a free public lecture by Sam Arons.

Arons is a member of Google's Global Infrastructure team, where as part of the team's global data center strategy, he helps lead the development and implementation of the company's global renewable energy strategy.

Key efforts of the team include managing Google's energy portfolio and sourcing as much renewable energy as possible to power the datacenters. Recent examples of the team's success include a negotiating a utility agreement for up to 407 MW of wind power in Iowa, closing a long-term power purchase agreement for 239 MW of wind power in the Texas panhandle, and signing a 72 MW wind power purchase agreement in Sweden to supply Google’s Hamina, Finland datacenter.

Prior to joining Google, Sam earned a B.A. in Physics from Williams College and an M.S. in Energy and Resources from UC Berkeley, where his research focused on wind energy and plug-in vehicles, respectively.

Biological Sciences Seminar Series

HSU Campus
All are welcome to attend this week's seminar, featuring Dr. Katharyn Boyer, of San Francisco State University. Dr. Boyer will present: "Consumer control of foundational plant species: implications for estuarine restoration."

Herbivory in estuarine systems undergoing restoration has received little attention, yet grazers play important, if not critical, roles in the establishment and persistence of plant species that
form the foundations of restored habitats. In this seminar, Dr. Boyer will review evidence of the central role of both invertebrate and vertebrate herbivores in seagrass and marsh habitats, and discuss the importance of experimental manipulations that reveal the magnitude and seasonality of effects and interactions among species. She will argue that understanding herbivore roles can inform restoration actions and increase the effectiveness of restoration programs.
4:15 pm Oct 3rd
