Cities in Crisis: Ecological Transformations - Cooper Union- The Great Hall
March 11, 2013 - New York

On the one hand, cities can be the epitome of sustainability, reaping the benefits of proximity, efficiency, and innovation. On the other hand, they can be graveyards of dreams and sources of contamination. In Cities In Crisis: Ecological Transformations, six lectures at The Cooper Union, Dr. Steward Pickett, past President of the Ecological Society of America and a plant ecologist with the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies, will present an integrated view of cities from an ecological perspective and explore the frontiers of promoting the transformation of a more sustainable urban trajectory. February 11: Globalization and the Changing City - What is urbanism? What is urban from an ecological perspective? How is the urban reality evolving in a global era? What is the nature of contemporary urban crisis? How can that crisis be met as an opportunity? February 18: Cities as Ecosystems - How do ecologists think about cities? What ecological processes occur in cities? What’s wrong with the idea of open space in cities? February 25: Natural Disturbance and the City - How common is natural disturbance in the urban context? What is the nature of natural hazard in cities? How does this play out in terms of social and other kinds of vulnerability? March 4: From Sanitary to Sustainable City - How did the “sanitary city” solve social and environmental problems? What are the limits to the sanitary strategy? How does the sustainable city envision solving the problems of the sanitary city, or even of cities that are created from scratch? March 11: Ecology for Urban Design - What does ecology have to say to urban design? What ecological principles underwrite ecological urban design? How do the ethics of sustainability shape ecological application in cities? March 18: A Land Ethic for the Urban Era - Does Aldo Leopold’s ethical viewpoint apply to cities? Is there a problem with our contrast between wilderness and “urbanness”? How do we facilitate the benefits of cities and incorporate them into ethical urban thinking?

Human rights activist and former president of Ireland Mary Robinson will discuss her new memoir, Everybody Matters, at The Cooper Union. Robinson has spent her life in pursuit of a fairer world, becoming a powerful and influential voice for human rights around the globe. Born in 1944 into a deeply Catholic family, she was poised to become a nun before finding her own true voice. Ever since, she has challenged convention in pursuit of fairness—whether in the Church, in government and politics, or in her own family. Everybody Matters will inspire all who read it with the belief that each of us can, in our own way, help change the world for the better. Mary Robinson served as the seventh, and first female, president of Ireland from 1990-1997, and as United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights from 1997-2002. Robinson has been honorary president of Oxfam International since 2002, and has chaired numerous bodies, including the GAVI Alliance, vaccinating children worldwide, and the Council of Women World Leaders (of which she was a cofounder). She is a member of the Elders, an independent group of global leaders brought together by Nelson Mandela. A member of the American Philosophical Society, she is the recipient of numerous awards and honors, including the U.S. Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Indira Gandhi and Sydney Peace Prizes. She is president of the Mary Robinson Foundation-Climate Justice, and lives with her husband, Nick Robinson, in Dublin and Mayo.

Secret Science Club Presents a Brain-Boggling Night with Neuroscientist Andre Fenton - Bell House
March 12, 2013 - Brooklyn

What's going on in that brain of yours? There may be as many neurons in onehuman brain as there are stars in the Milky Way Galaxy. Connecting these neurons arehundreds of trillions of pathways along which electrochemical messagesconstantly fly. The brain'suncanny ability to save, coordinate, and retrieve these messages is what creates our memoriesand very identities. Neuroscientist and biomedical engineer André Fenton is at the forefront of research on memory and forgetting. He and his colleagues discovered the first mind-bending molecule responsible for preserving long-term memories-and then went on to show how suppressing that molecule could wipe out existing memories. Dr. Fenton asks: --If we can pinpoint how memories are stored, can we selectively erase bad memories? Should we? --How are memories retrieved? Why don't all our memories flood our minds, causing traffic jams of thought? --How does neuronal activity-taking place on thenanoscale-translate into mental processes and thoughts? What tools are used to investigate? --Are there medical implications to current discoveries? Where will the future of brain research take us? Professor at NYU's Center for Neural Science and president of the BioSignal Group,André Fenton also studies electrochemical brain activity and its relationship to brain diseases and disorders. He is the developer of a mobile, wireless brain monitoring system for use in emergency room and ambulatory settings to help diagnose and prevent seizures. Before & After --Saturate yourself in cerebral grooves --Enjoy the brainy libation of the night-the Fenton Fizz-a potent potion that will realign your neural architecture . . . --Stick around for the thought-provoking Q&A! The next dopamine-spiked edition of the Secret Science Club meets Tuesday, March 12, 8 pm @ the Bell House, 149 7th St. (between 2nd and 3rd avenues) in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Subway: F or G to 4th Ave; R to 9th St. Doors open at 7:30 pm. Please bring ID: 21+ No cover. Just bring your smart self.
