What is it like to study nursing at the UA College of Nursing, ranked among the top 4 percent of graduate nursing programs in the United States? According to senior Erin Wiley, it's about learning through the program's true hands-on experience.
Education For Whom and For What?
Noam Chomsky, a world-renowned linguist, intellectual and political activist, spoke at the University of Arizona on Feb. 8, 2012. His lecture, "Education: For Whom and For What?" featured a talk on the state of higher education, followed by a question-and-answer session. Chomsky, an Institute Professor and a Professor Emeritus of Linguistics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he worked for more than 50 years, has been concerned with a range of education-related issues in recent years. Among them: How do we characterize the contemporary state of the American education system? What happens to the quality of education when public universities become more privatized? Are public universities in danger of being converted into facilities that produce graduates-as-commodities for the job market? What is the role of activism in education? With unprecedented tuition increases and budget struggles occurring across American campuses, these are questions that are more relevant than ever.
Astronomical Alchemy: The Origin of the Elements
Dr. Philip A. Pinto, Associate Professor, Astronomy/Steward Observatory, University of Arizona. One of the greatest achievements of twentieth-century science is an understanding of the origin of matter. While hydrogen and helium were produced in the Big Bang, the origin of the heavier elements—the silicon in rocks, the iron in our blood, and the oxygen we breathe--lies in the lifecycle of stars. Nuclear reactions, which transform light elements into heavier ones, cause stars to shine and ultimately to explode, seeding the universe with their production. These newly formed elements, the building blocks of ordinary matter, play a central role in the formation of planets and the evolution of life. Presented Feb. 22, 1011. Cosmic Origins is the story of the universe but it's also our story. Hear about origin of space and time, mass and energy, the atoms in our bodies, the compact objects where matter can end up, and the planets and moons where life may flourish. Modern cosmology includes insights and triumphs, but mysteries remain. Join the six speakers who explore cosmology's historical and cultural backdrop to explain the discoveries that speak of our cosmic origins. http://cos.arizona.edu/cosmic/
Space, Time and Gravity
Sam Gralla Assistant Professor of Physics University of Arizona At the dawn of the twentieth century, Einstein revolutionized our conception of reality, showing that space and time are not merely the stage on which the show unfolds, but dynamical entities that stretch, bend, and vibrate to give rise to the force we know as gravity. A century later, the vibrations of spacetime have been directly detected as gravitational radiation from colliding black holes, confirming Einstein’s prediction and ushering in a new era in observational astronomy. How did physicists measure these minuscule vibrations, and what does it mean for our understanding of the universe? And what is the next revolution, fomenting right now, in our conception of space and time?
The Biology of Aging: Why Our Bodies Grow Old
Dr. Janko Nikolich-Zugich presented the second lecture of the College of Science's Living Beyond 100 lecture series on January 31, 2012. Dr. Nikolich-Zugich is, Professor and Department Head of Immunobiology; Co-Director, Arizona Center on Aging, at the University of Arizona. Abstract: All organisms age, but we really do not have a clear explanation how and why. Do we have to grow old? Can we identify processes that can impact aging of particular parts of our bodies or, even better, of our entire bodies? Where do we stand with anti-aging interventions? This lecture will address theories of aging, emphasizing those that show most potential promise. The incredible promise of research on aging to extend healthspan and lifespan will be contrasted with the vast and unregulated world of anti-aging supplements and with the incredibly small investment we are making in developing credible anti-aging interventions.
The Aging of the Brain
Carol A. Barnes, Regents' Professor of Psychology and Neurology; Director of the Evelyn F. McKnight Brain Institute, University of Arizona, presented "The Aging of the Brain" on February 7, 2012. The lecture was part of the UA College of Sciences spring 2012 lecture series, Living Beyond 100. Abstract: One of the great frontiers of contemporary science is exploration of the mind. The brain embodies our individual identities as well as our ability to cooperate with others to understand the remaining mysteries of our universe. It is composed of billions of cells, the connections amongst which capture and preserve unique experiences. Over the past half-century, ideas about the aging brain have evolved away from it being an organ of passive deterioration towards the realization that it is capable of dynamic adaptation and high levels of function well past 100 years. One question remains - can we all achieve this?
Human Evolution: Tracing Our Origins with DNA
Michael Hammer, Research Scientist, Division of Biotechnology and Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology discusses the latest discoveries about the origin of our species, including the intriguing possibility of interbreeding between our ancestors and Neandertals.
Dark Matter, Dark Energy and Inflation: The Big Mysteries of Cosmology
Dr. Michael S. Turner, Professor, Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics, University of Chicago. Presented Feb. 15, 2011 Our current cosmological model describes the evolution of the universe from a very early burst of accelerated expansion (known as inflation) a tiny fraction of a second after the beginning, through the assembly of galaxies and large-scale structure shaped by dark matter, to our present epoch where dark energy controls the ultimate fate of the universe. As successful as it is, this model rests upon three mysterious pillars: inflation, dark energy and particle dark matter. All three point to exciting and important new physics that have yet to be revealed and understood -- or possibly, to a fatal flaw in the paradigm. The University of Arizona College of Science's Cosmic Origins lecture series is the story of the universe but it's also our story. Hear about origin of space and time, mass and energy, the atoms in our bodies, the compact objects where matter can end up, and the planets and moons where life may flourish. Modern cosmology includes insights and triumphs, but mysteries remain. Join the six speakers who will explore cosmology's historical and cultural backdrop to explain the discoveries that speak of our cosmic origins. http://cos.arizona.edu/cosmic/
Origin of the Universe: The Big Bang
Dr. Christopher D. Impey, Distinguished Professor, Astronomy/Steward Observatory, The University of Arizona The scientific story of creation begins 13.7 billion years ago in a circumstance of incredible temperature and density, when all matter and radiation was contained in a region smaller than an atom. The big bang is now a mature theory, with a web of observational evidence supporting it; and the size, shape and age of the universe have been measured with impressive accuracy. This talk will tell the story of how an iota of space-time turned into a vast cold universe of 100 billion galaxies. Presented Tuesday, February 8, 2011. The College of Science's "Cosmic Origins" lecture series is the story of the universe but it's also our story. Hear about origin of space and time, mass and energy, the atoms in our bodies, the compact objects where matter can end up, and the planets and moons where life may flourish. Modern cosmology includes insights and triumphs, but mysteries remain.

Ancient sentinels and the secrets locked away in their tree-rings
The explosive eruption of the volcano Thera on Santorini more than 3,400 years ago buried the Minoan settlement on the island in a layer of ash and pumice more than 130 feet (40 meters) deep. The effects of the eruption were felt as far away as Egypt and what is now Istanbul in Turkey. New analyses that use tree rings could settle the long-standing debate about when Thera erupted by resolving discrepancies between archeological and radiocarbon methods of dating the eruption, according to new University of Arizona-led research. “It’s about tying together a timeline of ancient Egypt, Greece, Turkey and the rest of the Mediterranean at this critical point in the ancient world — that’s what dating Thera can do,” said lead author Charlotte Pearson, an assistant professor of dendrochronology at the UA Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research.

Domesticating the Quantum
Pierre Meystre Editor in Chief American Physical Society Following its discovery, the quantum became central to our quest for a fundamental understanding of nature, from the structure of atoms and light to the Standard Model of particle physics, and beyond. As we learned how to tame, and increasingly how to domesticate the quantum, this also resulted in a technological `Quantum Revolution’ with a profound impact on our lives. This goes from the utterly devastating – with the invention of weapons capable of destroying civilization in the blink of an eye, to the most empowering – from medical imaging to the GPS, from the transistor to the laser, and from the internet to the smart phone. Following a brief review of these developments the lecture will focus on a more counter-intuitive aspect of quantum reality, what Einstein called “spooky action at a distance.” I will discuss how worldwide efforts at domesticating this elusive quantum attribute may lead to a `Second Quantum Revolution,’ with much promise for quantum communications, quantum metrology and quantum computing.
Planet Formation and the Origin of Life
Dante S. Lauretta, Professor, Planetary Sciences/Lunar and Planetary Laboratory It is generally accepted that planets or their satellites are required for life to originate and evolve. Thus, in order to understand the possible distribution of life in the Universe it is important to study planet formation and evolution. These processes are recorded in the chemistry and mineralogy of asteroids and comets, and the geology of ancient planetary surfaces in our Solar System. Evidence can also be seen in the many examples of ongoing planet formation in nearby regions of our galaxy. Finally, the variety of observable extra-solar planetary systems also provides insight into their origins and potential for life. These records will be discussed and compared to summarize our current understanding of planet formation and the accompanying processes that may lead to the origin of life throughout the Universe.
UA Engineering Design Day Exoskeleton
Now in its 15th year, Design Day is the culmination of the college's Engineering Design Program, in which teams of five or six students spend an entire academic year taking sponsors' projects from concept to reality. Sponsors pitch their projects to engineering design students each year in late summer at the program's open house. Hermelinda Bristol was there with her family, recruiting UA students to build an unpowered exoskeleton for her son Jeffrey, a UA junior in accounting who has cerebral palsy. Want to read more?

The Journey to the Extreme
Feryal Ozel Professor of Astronomy and Physics University of Arizona The Universe presents us with a myriad of extreme objects where our understanding of physical reality is continuously challenged. Do normal nuclei dissolve into quarks and perhaps into other new particles in the cores of neutron stars? What is the boundary between normal matter and a black hole’s infinite energy density, enshrouded by an event horizon? Why are our theories of gravity and quantum mechanics incompatible? The quest for answers continue with the development of new physical laws, Earth-sized telescopes, and an unending joyful journey to the edge of the extreme.
Metamemory: How Does the Brain Predict Itself?
Dr. Alfred W. Kaszniak, Professor and Head, Psychology, presented on March 30, 2010, as the fifth lecture in the University of Arizona College of Science Mind and Body Lecture Series. Dr. Kaszniak's research program is aimed at increasing our understanding of human brain systems involved in both cognition and emotion. Our brains recreate past experience, monitor recall efforts, and predict our chances of remembering things in the future. The knowledge we each possess about our own memory, and strategies to aid memory, form what is called metamemory. Studies of persons with impaired metamemory due to neurological illness, along with brain imaging studies of healthy adults making judgments about memory, indicate that the brain systems active in retrieving information are distinct from those that self-monitor memory. Metamemory research is helping build an understanding of a wide range of experiences from tip-of-the-tongue forgetfulness to the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease.

The Genesis of the 1918 Spanish Influenza Pandemic
Michael Worobey, Professor, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, The University of Arizona The Spanish influenza pandemic of 1918 was the most intense outbreak of disease in human history. It killed upwards of 50 million people (most in a six-week period) casting a long shadow of fear and mystery: nearly a century later, scientists have been unable to explain why, unlike all other influenza outbreaks, it killed young adults in huge numbers. I will describe how analyses of large numbers of influenza virus genomes are revealing the pathway traveled by the genes of this virus before it exploded in 1918. What emerges is a surprising tale with many players and plot lines, in which echoes of prior pandemics, imprinted in the immune responses of those alive in 1918, set the stage for the catastrophe. I will also discuss how resolving the mysteries of 1918 could help to prevent future pandemics and to control seasonal influenza, which quietly kills millions more every decade.
A Myriad of Particles
Elliott Cheu Interim Dean, Honors College and Distinguished Professor of Physics University of Arizona From the beginning of civilization, we have attempted to reduce our world to its simplest components. This search resulted in the discovery of the electron and culminated in the recent detection of the Higgs boson. Our current model of the particle world is stunningly successful in describing the Universe as we know it. Yet we do not understand many of the underlying principles that shape the natural world. The nature of mysterious things such as dark matter and dark energy are as yet unknown to us. This lecture will describe the journey that has culminated in our current understanding of our Universe, while pointing to the discoveries that are yet to be made.
What is Life?
Guy J. Consolmagno, SJ, Planetary Scientist, Vatican Observatory Research Group Throughout history, our definition of 'life' reflects our assumptions about how the Universe works – and why we ask the question. The ways different human cultures, ancient and current, have talked about life provide some sense of how we have defined life, and illustrate the aspects of life that fascinate us. Many cultures used life as an analog to explain the movement of winds and currents, or the motions of the planets. Today we use those mechanical systems as analogs for life. Ultimately, we may not really know what life is until we have discovered more than one independent example of it on places other than Earth – we need many diverse examples before we can generalize. But without a definition of what we're looking for, and why we're looking, we may have a hard time recognizing life when we find it. Jan 26 2015

Origins of Black Holes: Gravity at Its Extreme
Dr. Feryal Özel, Associate Professor, Astronomy/Steward Observatory, University of Arizona. Presented March 1, 2011. Gravity is the most important force in the universe, holding together planetary systems, stars, and galaxies. It is what makes the stars hot enough to shine and what keeps the Earth close enough to the Sun for life to form. It is also what ends the life of every massive star with a spectacular collapse and the formation of a black hole. Finding and studying hundreds of black holes within the Milky Way and in other galaxies brings us closer to understanding gravity at its extreme. Cosmic Origins is the story of the universe but it's also our story. Hear about origin of space and time, mass and energy, the atoms in our bodies, the compact objects where matter can end up, and the planets and moons where life may flourish. Modern cosmology includes insights and triumphs, but mysteries remain. Join the six speakers who will explore cosmology's historical and cultural backdrop to explain the discoveries that speak of our cosmic origins. http://cos.arizona.edu/cosmic/
Next: Darwin's Strange Inversion of Reasoning
Presented on February 17, 2009, by Dr. Daniel Dennett, Austin B. Fletcher Professor of Philosophy, Tufts University, as the third lecture in the University of Arizona College of Science lecture series, "Science That Transforms." http://cos.arizona.edu/next/ Until Charles Darwin's Origin of Species it was assumed that life forms were built to a pre-existing plan. When Darwin showed that small inherited modifications shaped by survival sufficed to shape life on Earth, he was greeted by criticism for his "strange inversion of reasoning". A century later, Alan Turing added his own strange inversion: "in order to be a perfect and beautiful computer, it is not requisite to know what arithmetic is." Today, we can for the first time observe and understand Darwin's reasoning as the trillions of tiny robotic agencies called cells, that know nothing of the role they are playing, work together to compose the human minds that are able to discover this very fact.
Life on Earth: By Chance or By Law?
Brian J. Enquist, Professor, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Life on Earth is amazing and multifaceted. Ultimately all of life has descended from one common ancestor and has been guided by evolution by natural selection. On the one hand, the evolution of modern-day diversity and ecosystems may have been contingent on the initial chemical building blocks of life and the historical events that have characterized our planet over geologic time. On the other hand, there are numerous aspects of life pointing to regular and deterministic processes that shape the complexity and diversity of life. This talk will touch on those examples where the laws of chemistry and physics, in addition to evolutionary rules, have resulted in general properties of life. These properties ultimately determine how long we live, the diversity of life, the function and regulation of ecosystems and the biosphere, and how life will respond to climate change.

UANews Cyber Ops
Jason Denno created and directs the UA cyber operations program from the UA South campus in Sierra Vista, not far from the U.S. Army installation at Fort Huachuca. It's hardly a geographical coincidence: Sierra Vista has a high concentration of cybersecurity personnel because of the base, which is the home of the Army's Network Enterprise Technology Command, or NETCOM, and the Army Intelligence Center. The UA cyber ops program, which began with about two dozen students in January 2017, has grown at blinding speed. It has students logging in from all over the world, ranging from Denno's 19-year-old son, Jake, to retired military personnel to an aerospace engineer with a Ph.D. Want to read more?

Rethinking the Rules of Reality
Keith R. Dienes Professor of Physics University of Arizona and Program Director, Physics National Science Foundation In this series kickoff lecture, we take a tour through some of the most cutting-edge concepts in modern physics. After discussing the connections between symmetries, forces, and conservation laws, we describe the fundamental building blocks of the natural world and what they tell us about where physics might be heading in the future. Finally, we discuss how physics gives rise to “weirdness at the extremes”, including the emergence of a new “dark sector” populated by modern ghosts.

Equine Aromatherapy
A whiff of lavender may be all that's needed to calm a nervous horse. Researchers at the University of Arizona analyzed the effects of aromatherapy on horses. Results may lead to more natural ways to calm an anxious horse. Lavender was found to be most effective, and unlike traditional tranquilizers, atomized lavender oil does not have a lingering effect and can be used only when needed. Ann Linda Baldwin, professor of physiology at the University of Arizona, is one of the researchers on the study. "We did get a calming effect with the lavender, but when we measured afterward, we no longer had the effect," Baldwin said. "So, it's just during the sniffing of the lavender that we see this calming effect." Many horse breeds are nervous by nature so natural tranquilizers such as lavender oil could help to calm horses during stressful activities such as shoeing and trailering. Want to read more?
