The program focuses on object-based teaching and research. It is both a means for the art museum to promote the development of innovative curricula and to facilitate the fuller integration of the museum’s collection into university-wide teaching, says Kate Holohan, Curator of University Education and Outreach.

Object-based teaching and research uses existing objects, such as works of art, manuscripts, archival documents, archaeological artifacts and natural specimens as a center for active, experiential and centered learning. the student. In this way, students can think deeply about materials and materiality and the makers and users of objects, connecting people, places and experiences across space and time. They can also develop and hone their observation skills; build vocabulary; bridging the gap between theory and practice; and increase empathy for people and experiences different from their own.

Marcelle Haddix, vice-president of strategic initiatives, whose responsibilities include oversight of the art museum, is enthusiastic about the pilot program’s ability to combine artifacts and treasures from campus collections with new learning opportunities.

“The art museum is a wonderful educational resource for teachers and students of all disciplines, and this pilot program highlights how collectibles can serve as useful and creative tools for research and teaching. The unique and tangible objects housed here help us cross cultures, continents and centuries,” says Haddix. “They offer insight into how materials are used and how creators imagined various expressions of human voices and ideas. They bring a real extra dimension to research and learning in the arts and humanities, as well as in history, research and understanding.

Three parties

There are three components to the program: an intensive workshop that takes place June 1-3, presentations by faculty colleagues in August, and the development of a museum visit lesson plan and at least one object-based student work. Each faculty member will receive a $3,000 research stipend or grant. Up to six fellowships are provided.

The program is open to all tenure-track and full-time Syracuse University faculty members teaching in Fall 2022 or Spring 2023. Proposals may be from any discipline and must include an existing lesson plan and a checklist of two to four objects from the museum’s collection to explore. Courses that can incorporate object-based instruction into the curriculum and that can be taught on a recurring basis will receive award preference, Holohan says.

45,000 items

The museum’s collection is among the largest collections of academic art in the United States, comprising more than 45,000 works of art and cultural artifacts from around the world spanning 5,500 years of human history, said Vanja Malloy, director and chief curator of the museum.

The museum will install in one of its study galleries a selection of objects related to the courses chosen by each faculty member. For courses taught in the fall of 2022, the objects will be exhibited from August to December of this year; and for courses given in the spring of 2023, the objects will be exhibited from January to May 2023.

The program is hosted by the Syracuse University Museum of Art with support from the Office of Strategic Initiatives and Office of Research in Academic Affairs.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A NASA climate researcher who has spent much of her career explaining how global food production must adapt to climate change was awarded the World Food Prize on Thursday.

Cynthia Rosenzweig, agronomist and climatologist, received the $250,000 award in recognition of her innovative modeling of the impact of climate change on food production. She is a Principal Investigator at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies and an Adjunct Principal Investigator at Columbia Climate School at Columbia University, both based in New York.

Rosenzweig, whose victory was announced at a ceremony at the State Department in Washington, said she hopes it will draw attention to the need to improve food and agricultural systems to mitigate the effects of change. climatic.

“We fundamentally cannot solve climate change unless we address the greenhouse gas emissions issues of the food system, and we cannot ensure food security for all unless we work very hard to develop systems resilient,” she told The Associated Press in an upcoming interview. of the ceremony.

The Des Moines-based World Food Prize Foundation award recognized Rosenzweig as the founder of the Agricultural Models Intercomparison and Improvement Project. The organization attracts scientists from around the world and many disciplines to advance methods for improving predictions of the future performance of agricultural and food systems as the global climate changes.

The foundation credits his work with directly helping policymakers in more than 90 countries establish climate change preparedness plans.

In his work, Rosenzweig has studied how farmers can cope with climate change and how farming makes the problem worse. For example, she contributed to a research paper published last month that found that global agri-food systems create almost a third of the world’s total greenhouse gases emitted by human activity.

Rosenzweig said the world must reduce these emissions and adapt to climate change. She noted that greenhouse gases come from many parts of food production, including the release of carbon and carbon dioxide from the clearing of forests for farmland and the oxidation of carbon from the plowing of fields. . Fertilizer use also releases nitrous oxide into the atmosphere, farm equipment emits fossil fuels, and livestock release methane.

Rosenzweig, who describes herself as a climate impact scientist, grew up in Scarsdale, New York, a suburb that she says led her to seek out the country life. She moved to Tuscany, Italy with her future husband in her twenties and developed a passion for farming. Back in the United States, she focused her training on agronomy.

She worked as a graduate student at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies in the early 1980s, when global climate models were beginning to show the effects of human-generated carbon dioxide on global climate. As the only member of the team to study agronomy, she studied the impact on food production and has been working to answer these questions ever since, she said.

Rosenzweig’s work led to the Environmental Protection Agency’s first projections of the effect of climate change on the nation’s agricultural regions in the agency’s assessment of the potential effects of climate change on the United States. United in 1988. She was the first to draw attention to climate change. of the American Society of Agronomy and organized the first sessions on the subject in the 1980s.

She made the first projections of how climate change will affect food production in North America in 1985 and around the world in 1994, and she was one of the first scientists to document that climate change was already having an impact on food production and culture.

The research organization she founded, AgMIP, is developing adaptation programs, which could include the use of more drought-resistant seeds and better water management practices. In Bangladesh, the group is working with rice farmers to develop new paddy management practices to reduce the significant release of methane produced by the existing process.

She said even the biggest agribusiness companies have shown a willingness to listen. She said some models colleagues have developed show how businesses could be affected by climate change and how they too have a role to play in reversing the impact on the climate.

“This is truly a global partnership of the entire global food system to come together to limit climate change and keep the planet food secure,” she said.

World Food Prize Foundation President Barbara Stinson, who announced the winner, credited Rosenzweig for innovations that have helped countries respond to climate change.

Nobel laureate Norman Borlaug created the World Food Prize in 1986 to recognize scientists and others who have improved the quality and availability of food. Rosenzweig will receive the award and speak at a ceremony in October in Des Moines.

InvestmentPitch Media Video discusses Astra Exploration https://sailtheory.com/investmentpitch-media-video-discusses-astra-exploration/ Tue, 03 May 2022 10:00:00 +0000 https://sailtheory.com/investmentpitch-media-video-discusses-astra-exploration/ VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Astra Exploration (TSXV:ASTR) has released results from the first 11 of 30 drill holes completed at the Pampa Paciencia gold-silver project in northern Chile.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Astra Exploration (TSXV:ASTR) has released results from the first 11 of 30 drill holes completed at the Pampa Paciencia gold-silver project in northern Chile. The flagship 3,840 hectare low sulphidation epithermal gold-silver project is located in an active mining district within 15 kilometers of two major mines, Sierra Gorda and Spence, and 5 kilometers from the Faride mine, in the Antofagasta region in northern Chile.

A media clip accompanying this announcement is available by clicking on the image or link below:

For more information, please watch the InvestmentPitch Media video which provides additional information on this news and the company, along with video commentary from Brian Miller, CEO. The video can be viewed at “InvestmentPitch” and on “Youtube”. If these links are not enabled, please visit www.InvestmentPitch.com and enter “Astra” in the search field.

Astra completed property scale mapping and sampling, geophysical surveys and localized trenching and in doing so defined a vein boulder field over approximately 75% of the project area. The veins do not outcrop because the majority of the project area is underlain by a thin layer of gravels and caliches, but the vein float can be used to identify areas of high prospectivity.

Reverse circulation drilling has commenced on the veins in the five kilometer long North Zone interpreted vein corridor. A total of 2,981 meters were completed in thirty holes between February and March 2022, which primarily focused on defining the strike and depth continuity of the Paciencia vein system.

Three holes tested veins at depth in the central zone and two holes tested geophysical targets in the north zone. The 11 holes reported today targeted the Paciencia vein in this corridor over a strike length of 400 metres. All holes intersected the vein, with several intercepting a sub-parallel wall flare.

Eleven historic holes had already been drilled on the property and Astra geologists continued with the numbering system, with hole PPRC-22-12 being the first of the current holes. The historical drill holes were widely spaced, leaving significant strike and dip length to extend the historical drill intersections into larger bodies of mineralization.

These first results strongly support this interpretation with holes PPRC-22-12, PPRC-22-13 and PPRC22-14 extending the mineralization to the east where it remains open laterally and at depth.

Highlights include hole PPRC-22-12 with 14.48 g/t Au and 39.7 g/t Ag over 3m downhole, in a wider zone of 2.71 g/t Au and 10 .8 g/t Ag over 21 m downhole. Hole PPRC-22-13 with 3.28 g/t Au and 58.3 g/t Ag over 6 m downhole in a wider zone of 1.6 g/t Au and 21.3 g/t Ag over 22 m background. Hole PPRC-22-14, with 4.09 g/t Au and 45.22 g/t Ag over 4 m downhole in a wider zone of 1.39 g/t Au and 17.1 g/t Ag over 17m depth. Drill tests for the remaining 18 holes are expected before the end of May.

The shares, which began trading on the TSX Venture Exchange on Jan. 26, are currently trading at $0.23. For more information, visit the company’s website www.astra-exploration.comcontact Brian Miller, CEO, at 208-830-0869 or email brian.miller@astra-exploration.com

Consider a mountaineering expedition in a totally unexplored environment, where hikers have the ability to generate a real-time 3D map of the terrain. Nasa researchers and industry partners have developed a remote sensing mapping system that will help explorers in one of the most remote regions imaginable: the airless wastelands of the Moon’s south pole.

The Kinematic Navigation and Mapping Backpack (KNaCK) is a mobile lidar scanner – a remote sensing technology that measures distance using light detection and laser light. It is worn like a hiking backpack and uses an innovative type of lidar called frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) lidar to deliver Doppler speed and range for millions of data points per second. These measurement points generate a real-time navigation system, providing the explorer with a 3D “point cloud” or high-resolution representation of the surrounding environment.

Think of it as a supercharged version of the laser range finders used by surveyors or the incredibly sensitive proximity alarms that help smart cars avoid crashes, according to planetary scientist Dr. Michael Zanetti, who leads the KNaCK project at Marshall Space Flight Center in Washington. NASA in Huntsville, Alabama.

“Basically, the sensor is a surveying tool for navigation and scientific mapping, capable of creating ultra-high resolution 3D maps with centimeter precision and giving them rich scientific context,” Zanetti said. “It will also help keep astronauts and mobile vehicles safe in a GPS-less environment such as the Moon, by identifying true distances to distant landmarks and showing explorers in real time how far they have traveled and the remaining distance to go to reach their destination.

It’s a major challenge as Artemis-era explorers prepare to undertake the first modern missions to the Moon, and the very first to its South Pole. The Sun here never rises more than 3 degrees above the lunar horizon, leaving much of the terrain in deep shadow. This makes distances to various points of interest difficult to observe.

UAV Drone Landing KNaCK Technology

This video of a UAV drone landing in the dusty New Mexico desert shows how KNaCK technology – leveraging 4D FMCW-lidar data from NASA supplier Aeva Inc. of Mountain View, Calif. – combines high video imagery live, real-time definition, as seen on the top left panel; lidar telemetry data, top right; and Doppler lidar velocity data. The latter tracks the speed and direction of dust particles kicked up by the descending drone, with red indicating particles moving away from the scanner and blue indicating those moving towards it. Such capabilities, currently under development by researchers at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, could benefit future science missions to other worlds in addition to enabling real-time topographic mapping by explorers.

Launched in 2020 with funding from NASA’s Early Career Initiative, the KNaCK project has partnered with Torch Technologies Inc. of Huntsville to develop the prototype backpack and associated navigation algorithms that enable accurate mapping without GPS. The project’s commercial supplier, Aeva Inc. of Mountain View, Calif., is providing FMCW-lidar sensors and support, working with NASA to improve the backpack lidar detection system for use on the Moon and to Other Extraplanetary Human Excursions.

Using KNaCK on rover excursions and while traveling on foot, explorers could accurately map the topography of the landscape, including deep ravines, mountains, and caves. Lidar works even in total darkness, relieving astronauts of the need to carry cumbersome lighting rigs wherever they go.

“As humans, we tend to orient ourselves based on landmarks — a specific building, a grove of trees,” Zanetti said. “These things don’t exist on the Moon. KNaCK will continuously allow explorers traversing the surface to determine their movement, direction, and orientation to distant peaks or their base of operations. They can even mark specific sites where they’ve found a unique mineral or rock formation, so others can easily return for further study.

It’s vital for astronauts on a clock, their excursions limited by the oxygen supply in their suits. KNaCK’s ultra-high resolution accuracy — an order of magnitude better than conventional lunar topography maps and elevation models — makes it a vital resource for conducting science and mission operations 238,900 miles from mission control, a said Zanetti.

The hardware will undergo another major field test in late April at NASA’s Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI) in Kilbourne Hole, New Mexico. The team previously put the KNaCK system through its paces in this ancient volcanic crater – estimated to be between 25,000 and 80,000 years old – in November 2021. They also used it recently to perform a 3D reconstruction of the Barrier Reef dunes. 6-mile-long sea at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, which protects its main rocket launch pads. Kennedy and Marshall engineers will continue to use KNaCK to assess the impact of storms on dune erosion, ensuring the safety of future flight missions as they refine the system.

Next, the KNaCK team will work to miniaturize the hardware — the prototype backpack weighs around 40 pounds — and harden the sensitive electronics against the punitive effects of microgravity and solar radiation.

“Leveraging the latest advances in lidar technology from Aeva, our space-hardened next-generation unit with support from Torch Technologies will be roughly the size of a soda can and could enable surface operations. moon like never before,” Zanetti said. He plans to mount it on a rover or on the side of an astronaut’s helmet – which should leave plenty of room in future moon climbers’ all-purpose backpacks.

April 22 is Earth Day, and here at NOAA we know a few things about Earth. This year, NOAA is celebrating the 50th anniversary of several conservation acts and also preparing to support the new America the Beautiful initiative which aims to preserve and conserve at least 30% of US land and water by 2030.

Having a better understanding of our changing ocean and the atmosphere is essential to take measures to create a real impact. Every day, the people at NOAA support and conduct research that helps inform policy and educate decision makers about the state of the Earth. This research goes into models that help improve weather and climate predictions, data products, like maps showing global ocean carbon, and international reports, like the annual State of the Climate report.


Here are three ways our science helps inform environmental policy:


Scientists have made this float biogeochemical Argo named Europa in 2021.



Identify changes thanks to observations and ocean data


NOAA’s Global Ocean Monitoring and Observing (GOMO) Program plays a vital role in NOAA’s ocean research, supporting more than one million ocean observations daily. These observations and data come from a variety of tools and instruments, such as Argo floats, drifting buoys, gliders, moored buoys and research cruises. With more than two decades of data and a current fleet of around 4,000 robotic floats, the Argo program has provided a baseline of upper ocean temperature and salinity measurements – nearly four times as much information on the ocean than all the others combined observation tools. Every year, around 500 scientific papers are published using Argo data, when this research makes news, policy makers can take notice. In a 2020 paper published in Nature Climate Change, NOAA scientist Gregory Johnson and his colleague found that over the past 52 years, ocean warming trends eclipse cooling trends. “Ocean warming is closely linked to increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, so global trends in ocean temperature are an important yardstick for measuring climate change,” Johnson said. . Specifically, warming oceans are impacting marine ecosystems, fish populations, coral reef health – which can also impact the seafood and tourism industries. A better understanding of ocean trends like this can also help identify appropriate solutions.

The Ocean Exploration informs ocean protection


For more than 20 years, NOAA Ocean Exploration has collected critical data from the ocean’s surface to its bottom – information that has been used in conservation decisions surrounding some of our nation’s most important marine ecosystems.


For example, expeditions supported by NOAA Ocean Exploration in the early 2000s found that Seamount Davidson, an underwater mountain habitat off the coast of central California, was home to large coral forests, vast fields of sponges, crabs, deep sea fish, shrimp, basket stars and a large number of rare and unidentified species. This vast range of biodiversity illustrates the need to protect seamounts, and in 2008 the boundary of the National Marine Sanctuary Monterey Bay was expanded to protect this fascinating and important habitat.

Research on Methane contributes to the development of a policy on landfills


A 2018 study by NOAA’s Lab Air Resources and partners looked at methane emissions in the Washington, DC-Baltimore, MD region and found that landfills in Maryland were emitting more methane than is known. thought. The study’s lead researcher, Xinrong Ren, shared the study’s findings with the Maryland Department of Environment, and Maryland has begun making policy changes regarding landfills. .
