DC – 2019 AAAS Meeting, Sci-Mic Stage

April 7, 2019 by Dr. G

This was a type of session I had never seen at a scientific conference before – a podcasting stage! Throughout the meeting, several different podcasters did live interviews and recorded them for posting to their series (see the listing). I was able to watch the Direct Current podcast interview from the Department of Energy (podcast home page) and a few others. But the discussion I most enjoyed (which was more of a presentation and sharing of audio clips than an interview) was from the Wall Street Journal and their series The Future of Everything.

On their website, WSJ describes The Future of Everything with the following: “Discover what comes next with this in-depth look at how science and technology are revolutionizing the way we live, work and play. Join host Jennifer Strong every Wednesday as she crisscrosses the country to interview the leaders and luminaries reshaping our world.”

The series did a mini-collection of three podcasts themed around The Price of Climate. Check out each of these episodes, each about 20 minutes in length.

 

The Price of Climate: Is Commercial Fishing in Hot Water?

The Price of Climate: Producing Heat-Resistant Beef

The Price of Climate: The Northern Farming Frontier

The first one is great for my oceanography course, but all three I’m going to have my students in my climate course listen to. I hope the Wall Street Journal continues to record additional mini-series such as this one to further communicate the connections between society/economy/climate. I hope to see more sessions/stages like this at more conferences!

I'm thrilled to be exhibiting my quilts and crocheted pieces at @jagardens, starting this weekend! It will be the first time my Drawing Down Towards Climate Solutions mini-quilts, plus my Stitching Hope for the Louisiana quilts, PLUS my crocheted temperature data will all be on display at once. For those in southeastern PA, I hope you are able to come out sometime before January 8 to stroll the beautiful arboretum and stop by the art gallery to view these pieces. Admission to the arboretum and gallery is free!
Finished this fun data visualization/quilt top that shares the daily Sky Cover measurements from @joides_resolution #EXP390. As sky cover is recorded in units zero to eight, I chose eight different batik fabrics to represent the scale (the deepest blue batik for the blue sky, and the darkest/black batik for when the sky was completely clouded over, and all shades of blue/grey in-between). As the expedition officially was April 7 thru June 7, 2022, there are 62 pieces of data/batik strips. The background fabric is filled with golden stars for the sky, and the bright gold border is my nod to our port city, where the fabric was purchased.
Thank you @SciHistoryOrg for hosting Start Talking Science 2022 - so great to be able to present alongside other Philly scientists about the work we do to a non-STEM audience of all ages! And a great opportunity to share the mission and how we do science at sea on @theJR #EXP390 #EXP393
Back at @pennlivearts this evening to hear the @blindboysofalabama - so incredible, so inspirational! The new songs were great, but my all-time favorite will always be Amazing Grace sung to The House of the Rising Sun (check it out if you have never heard this innovative mashup).
🎼 I love live New Orleans jazz - and tonight, I didn’t have to go to New Orleans, as the jazz came to me! 🎶 Such a fun concert by @newbreed_brassband. 🎵 The best part - the sousaphone player’s high school band teacher was there & brought his trumpet on stage and joined them for a few songs. 🎺 After the first song, he said he was getting emotional, as he was so proud of the group. I get it, teacher, I’m there with you.
