      Happy New Year of Science,


      Now that we know that the world didn’t end in December we can move on to some great new science presentations and celebrations in 2013.  You may have read a book called “Something Incredibly Wonderful Happens” by K.C. Cole.  If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it; it is a great story about the founder of the Exploratorium, Frank Oppenheimer.  What is happening there is an amazingly wonderful thing.  You may have heard that they are moving.  They are doing it with such style and spirit you need to keep up as things are revealed.  It is happening so fast that we can't keep up with all of it at the SciSchmooze!  They are planning an amazing event on March 10 called On the Move that will bring the explO to the Bayview and Mission Neighborhoods as well as across the street from Pier 15 where they will open on April 17.  It is no secret that I am a major fan but trust me on this…  Something incredibly wonderful is coming on Apr 17 at Pier 15 on the Embarcadero.


      Bob and I were overwhelmed with the response to the Ano Nuevo Sea Lion tour.  Thanks to all of you for your positive support and reaction.  It sold out in a little over 24 hours.  Full credit goes to Bob for the idea and making it work.  If you are interested in going out there on your own scheduling and being ready to order on line is the trick.  Here is the link to use if you would like to go yourself or to try and get a group together, Elephant Seal Guided Walks.


      Here are a few presentations that I think will help you get some new insights on some cool developments in science.

      1-     Myths of the Brain - 01/07/2013 07:30 PM  Kells Irish Pub, San Francisco

      2-     'The Pipe' - Tiburon International Film Festival - 01/08/2013 06:00 PM   Bay Model Visitors Center, Sausalito

      3-     Marine Science Sunday: Animals of the Arctic - 01/13/2013 10:00 AM  Marine Mammal Center, Sausalito


      A special note… Today (1.6.13) was the 162nd anniversary of Leon Foucault’s debut of what came to be called the Foucault Pendulum.  The California Academy of Sciences has one.  They built it, as well as more than 100 others around the world!  They are in museums, corporate buildings, and even private homes! 


      Looking ahead a few months…   SkeptiCal 2013 will take place on Saturday, June 15, 2013 at the Berkeley Marina Doubletree Hotel.  Block out the date now!


      There are so many scams out there that present science as the answer but the science they promote just doesn’t work.  Here is an example of some diet plans that just don’t work whether they say they are backed by science or not, 2012 Slim Chance Awards.  If you are curious about resources to help figure out if there is science and reason behind claims that seem to be just too crazy or actually look reasonable here is one of the better lists of websites that will help you figure it out or warn you.  Skeptics Guide to the Universe links

      The Era of Mainstream Clean Energy: Solar Rising - 01/07/2013 04:15 PM
      Stanford University Energy Seminar, Stanford

      Despite recent political attacks and negative headlines, the renewable energy and the solar industries emerge from 2012 ready to play a significant part in mainstream energy markets. Industry data reflects an increasing role for renewables as the fastest growing new source of electricity. It is now all but inevitable that our energy future will feature some combination of natural gas, wind, and solar. In this new era of mainstream clean energy, energy policy and industry action will determine what this future looks like. Will we end up with a gas-centric generating fleet with wind and solar around the edges? Or will we prioritize wind and solar with gas in a supporting role? What steps can we take to ensure renewables remain a central priority?

      Speaker: Arno Harris, Recurrent Energy 

      Editor's Note: This speaker replaces Rhone Resch, originally scheduled for this date.

      Signals from the Ocean - 01/07/2013 07:30 PM
      Montclair Presbyterian Church, Oakland

      How the Oceans are trying to get our attention.   Speaker: Mary McGann, USGS

      Myths of the Brain - 01/07/2013 07:30 PM 
      Kells Irish Pub, San Francisco

      Do we only have a limited number of non-renewable brain cells --and is it true that we only use 10 percent of them? Do we really need eight hours of uninterrupted sleep every night? And is Alzheimer's inevitable? Is marijuana bad for your brain? What about alcohol, a known toxin?

      Science writer Judith Horstman will talk about your amazing brain, dispelling myths and revealing fascinating facts from her four popular Scientific American books: A Day in the Life of Your Brain, Brave New Brain, The Book of Love, Sex and the Brain, and her most recent book The Healthy Aging Brain.

      The atmospheric circulation of Pluto and Triton as predicted by a general circulation model - 01/08/2013 12:00 PM
      SETI Institute Colloquium Series, Mountain View

      A variety of previous studies have investigated the 1D vertical temperature-pressure profiles of Pluto and Triton's atmospheres, while another class of models has investigated the bulk north-south transport of volatiles on these worlds.  However, only recently have modern, 3D general circulation models (GCMs) been applied to Pluto and Triton.

      GCMs are global models that solve for the primitive equations of the atmosphere and surface simultaneously, and can be used to predict surface, subsurface, and atmospheric temperature; atmospheric pressure; the three components of atmospheric flow; and surface ice thickness and extent in a physically consistent way.  Most importantly from a meteorological standpoint, is that GCMs are the best tool for predicting atmospheric circulation, since this property is difficult to measure remotely.

      Dr. Zalucha will discuss the results from one such Pluto/Triton GCM based off of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology GCM dynamical core.

      Speaker: Angela Zalucha, SETI

      'The Pipe' - Tiburon International Film Festival - 01/08/2013 06:00 PM  
      Bay Model Visitors Center, Sausalito

      The Pipe follows a West of Ireland crab fisherman, 'The Chief', whose life is flung into turmoil by the arrival of Shell Oil in the bay where his family have fished for generations, and in a desperate attempt to protect his livelihood, he steers his 40 foot crab boat directly into confrontation with the worlds largest pipe-laying vessel, Solitaire.

      The Pipe is a story of a community tragically divided, and how they deal with a pipe that could bring economic prosperity or destruction to a way of life shared for generations.

      History of the Delta - 01/09/2013 02:00 PM
      Bay Model Visitors Center, Sausalito

      Learn about the history of the delta - from the early 1800s up to 2012 - from framing, discovery of gold, railroad building, and levee building to the present time with Ranger Bill. 1,000 miles in scope, 60-80 man made islands, and a population that exceeds 500,000!  Historical.   Educational. Informative.

      Multiscale Dataflow Computing: The Vertical Perspective - 01/09/2013 04:15 PM
      Stanford University, Stanford

      In this talk we show a vertical perspective on high performance computing. While on the chip level, microprocessors look like the most efficient way to compute, once we evaluate efficiency on the architecture level, the more flexible approach we employ with multiscale dataflow computing allows us to further minimize communication and balance computation with communication components. Finally, on the system level, parallel programming for both multicore and dataflow based systems requires significant effort, and legacy software presents a major obstacle to change. We will show performance results from users at universities and industry.

      To complete the picture, we present the application of Multiscale Dataflow Computing to complete scenario-based risk solutions.

      Speakers: Oskar Mencer and Stephen Weston, Maxeler Technologies

      The Science of Yoga: A Mind-Body Practice - 01/09/2013 07:30 PM
      Herbst Theater, San Francisco

      Yoga has been shown to effectively improve over 50 medical conditions including stress induced injuries and illnesses. By combining the mindfulness techniques of meditation with physical movement of yoga, people all over the world have witnessed reductions of stress and physical ailments in their bodies. Jon Kabat-Zinn is Professor of Medicine Emeritus at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.  He combined the practices of mindfulness meditation and Hatha yoga in his world renowned Mindfulness – Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program. MBSR helps patients cope with stress, pain, and illness by using moment-to-moment awareness and is now being taught at over 200 top medical centers around the world, and is offered at hospitals, schools, prisons and in professional sports. Kabat-Zinn will be in conversation with Kelly McGonigal a health psychologist and lecturer at Stanford University. She is the author of Yoga for Pain Relief, which translates recent advances in neuroscience and medicine into mind-body strategies for relieving chronic pain, stress, depression, and anxiety. McGonigal is passionate about translating cutting-edge research from psychology, neuroscience, and medicine into practical strategies for personal health and happiness.

      Journey South: Elephant Seals and Whale Watching - 01/12/2013 09:45 AM
      Point Reyes National Seashore, Point Reyes Station

      January is a special time at the tip of Point Reyes, as we are visited by magnificent marine mammals. First, from the bluffs above the historic lighthouse, we will keep a lookout for gray whales that are migrating southward from their arctic feeding grounds to their birthing lagoons in Baja California. Then, near Chimney Rock, we will have excellent opportunities to observe a colony of northern elephant seals occupying a protected beach. At this time of year the females will be giving birth to pups and the dominant males will be sparing and fending off the "bachelors." If time allows, we will walk along the Chimney Rock headlands for views of our local Pacific harbor seals and California sea lions. Join us as we learn more about the lives and biology of these amazing mammals, and share in the thrill of our observations. Also open to youth (age 15-17) with parent attendance. Register online.
