AgCenter Seminar: Africa Soil Information Service - Open Data Science for Agricultural Landscapes
September 02, 2015 from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm EDT
Columbia University, Lamont Campus, Gary C. Comer Geochemistry Building, First Floor Seminar Room

The Earth Institute's Agriculture and Food Security Center (AgCenter) presents Africa Soil Information Service: Open Data Science for Agricultural Landscapes, a seminar with Markus Walsh, Senior Research Scientist, Ecosystems and Landscape Ecology, Agriculture and Food Security Center (AgCenter), The Earth Institute, Columbia University.  Open to the public.

Landscape data and information, just like high quality seed and fertilizer, represent a critical production input for Africa’s rural communities, with potentially high returns on investment. This 30 minute presentation examines recent advances in generating agriculturally relevant information using open data science, agile software development and reproducible research approaches. The examples presented cover topics including: crowd sourcing of land cover observations, ground and UAV data collections, digital soil mapping and low-cost, high performance computing solutions for generating near-real-time predictions about the condition and changes of the agricultural landscapes of Africa.

Markus Walsh is based at the Selian Agricultural Research Institute in Arusha, Tanzania, where he is the science coordinator for the Africa Soil Information Service. Since joining the Earth Institute, his research has focused on developing operational tools for diagnosis, mapping and monitoring of the ecological condition of African landscapes with an emphasis on the application of IT and data science in agriculture. Raised in Kenya, Markus has over 25 years of experience in ecosystems and landscape ecology research in Africa. Markus was a senior research scientist at the World Agroforestry Center (ICRAF) from 1997-2007, where he led research on land degradation assessment, monitoring and rehabilitation in the Lake Victoria Basin, based in Kisumu, Kenya.

During the discussion about Media in the Classroom, faculty will have the opportunity to explore using Mediathread to analyze various Media.

Mediathread is a tool created here at Columbia, that allows professors and students to perform close analysis of audio, video, and images. Students can draw circles on an image, start a video exactly where they want it to, to use as evidence in a composition. Our new selection assignment, allows faculty to start with just the analyzing of the media, which can than be used for compositions within our composition assignment.

Come to this workshop if you are interested in using photos, videos or audio files to improve comprehension, vocabulary or more in your classroom.

Chemistry Seminar - Henry Fong
September 04, 2015 from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm EDT
Columbia University Morningside Campus Room 209 Havemeyer

Please join us for Friday Synthesis Symposium! 

"Metallaboratrane Facilitated E­–H Bond Activation and Hydrogenation Catalysis"

Speaker:  Dr. Henry Fong, Caltech

When: Friday, September 4, 2015 at 4 PM

Where: 209 Havemeyer

Abstract:   Catalytic bond activation and bond forming reactions are often catalyzed with noble metal complexes, due in part to their ability to facilitate multielectron processes (e.g., oxidative addition and reductive elimination). There is great interest in replacing these noble metal catalysts with abundant mid to late first-row transition metals. However, first-row transition metal complexes often undergo undesirable one-electron reactions. One promising strategy to circumvent the one-electron reactions is to use ligands that operate cooperatively with the metal. In this talk, I will show that the metallaboratrane complex tris-phosphino-borane-iron, (TPB)Fe, which contains a retro-dative FeŕB σ-interaction, can reversibly activate E–H bonds across the Fe–B interaction, forming Fe–E and B–H linkages. The (TPB)Fe complexes are catalytically competent for olefin hydrogenation, and stoichiometric studies indicate that the iron and boron operate in tandem to hydrogenate olefin substrates. (TPB)Fe is incompetent for CO2 hydrogenation, in contrast to related iron complexes. The collective findings suggest that metallaboratranes are a promising class of compounds that can leverage the M–B interaction for cooperative E–H bond activation and, in some instances, catalysis.

Beijing: Public Lecture by Marcos Troyjo
September 08, 2015 from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm EDT
Beijing, China

BRICS as 'Re-Emerging' Markets: Bracing fro the 'New' New World In this lecture, Professor Marcos Troyjo will examine the trajectory of globalization over the past 25 years and what the world should look like in scenarios projected all the way to 2030. He will review the "deep globalization" made possible by the end of the Cold War, and then show how we are now running a "risk of de-globalization" in which countries and companies restructure their strategies into protectionistic and individualistic actions. Professor Troyjo will also explain how the concept of “emerging markets” came up in the last few years as an idea associated with the future of the world, and argues that their performance in the coming years will be judged less by what we today label either "advanced" or "emerging" economies, and more by a country's ability to competitively shape up to the “reglobalization” now in the making. Please RSVP here. Additional information can be found at the following link.
