Origins of Environmental Law Lecture Series: Introduction to Early Environmental Legislation, Pre-1969
September 03, 2014 from 11:00 am to 12:50 pm EDT
Columbia University Morningside Campus International Affairs Building, Room 407

The Earth Institute presents Origins of Environmental Law Lecture Series Description: Introduction to Early Environmental Legislation, Pre-1969.  

This seminar is part of a semester-long lecture series entitled The Origins of Environmental Law: Regulation and Evolution. Leon G. Billings and Thomas C. Jorling are the two senior staff members who led the Senate environment subcommittee which originated and developed major environmental legislation in the 1970s, including the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, and the Superfund Act. Over the course of a single decade, Congress enacted a series of environmental laws that defined the direction and character of environmental policy in the US and globally. Learn about the process that led to these seminal laws from the writers of the legislation themselves.

This first talk will provide an overview of environmental legislation and early environmental federalism. The speakers will review the evolution of existing pollution law, circa 1969: water pollution legislation from 1948 through 1966 and air pollution legislation from 1955 through 1967. They will also consider what things can limit federal intervention, and will look at the role of external factors such as Earth Day and the Vietnam War protests on environmental legislation. 

RSVP is required for this event. Please note this lecture is part of a regularly scheduled course. Guests will join registered students in the class for the lecture and discussion.

Becoming Soviet: The Transformation of Everyday Life in Stalin's Times
September 03, 2014 from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm EDT
Columbia University Morningside Campus International Affairs Building, Room 1219

Mass festivals were a trademark of twentieth-century authoritarianism, as seen in fascist Italy, Nazi Germany, and elsewhere. But nowhere was this phenomenon more prevalent than in the Soviet Union. Despite being a dominant feature of Soviet culture, these public spectacles have been largely overlooked as objects of study by historians. Originally published in German, Malte Rolf’s highly acclaimed work examines the creation and perpetuation of large-scale celebrations such as May Day, the anniversary of the October Revolution, Harvest Day, and others throughout the Soviet era. He chronicles the overt political agendas, public displays of power, forced participation, and widespread use of these events in the Soviet drive to eradicate existing cultural norms and replace them with new icons of Soviet ideology. Rolf shows how the new Red Calendar became an essential tool in redefining celebrations in the Soviet Union. Malte Rolf is professor of history at the University of Bamberg, Germany. His book, Soviet Mass Festivals, 1917-1991 (University of Pittsburgh Press 2014), has received the Klaus Mehnert Award by the German Society for East European Studies and the Doctorate Award of University of Tübingen.

Power Half Hour: On-Campus Interviewing
September 03, 2014 from 12:30 pm to 1:00 pm EDT
Columbia University Center for Career Education East Campus Lower Level Conference Room

The Center for Career Education’s (CCE) On-Campus Recruiting Program (OCR) brings employers to campus for the purpose of meeting, interviewing and recruiting students. On-Campus Interviewing (OCI) is a critical component to the success of the On-Campus Recruiting program for both students and employers alike.

Based on recent employer and student feedback, we have updated our OCI policies and procedures. To ensure that everyone is made aware of these updates, all students must gain or re-gain OCI access*. Students who attend this event will be granted OCI access within two business days of the training.

In this training, we will provide students with an overview of The Center for Career Education services and the ways in which they can best prepare for their job search. We will also review how to search and apply for jobs and internships using LionSHARE, CCE’s online job database and recruiting system. Largely, we will speak about the On-Campus Recruiting Program, with a particular focus on on-campus interviews. Students will learn how to best prepare for on-campus interviews, become aware of both student and employer expectations throughout this process, and most importantly, learn how to utilize available resources while navigating the job search and interview process.

*Please keep in mind that if you had OCI access prior to 7/1/2013 and are currently enrolled at Columbia, your OCI access was turned off as new policies are now in place. You must complete the On-Campus Recruiting Program Overview training to re-gain access.

This workshop will be offered on:

Wednesday, September 3, 2014, 12:30 – 1:00pm

Club Member's Apartment
South Loop
Chicago, IL
Details and directions will be emailed to those attending.

Courtroom 302: A Year Behind the Scenes in an American Criminal Courthouse, by Steve Bogira, takes you inside the Cook County criminal justice system. Published by Knopf in 2005, the book is the result of an astounding level of author access to the judge, prosecutors, and public defenders.

"Steve Bogira, for years a reporter for The Chicago Reader, burrows into the machine that processes thousands of citizens a year, most of them poor, African-American and involved with drugs. His intuition was that the goings-on in the old limestone courthouse on 26th Street, however banal-seeming, might hide sprawling human dramas. And by focusing on something small -- the cases coming before one judge, in a single courtroom -- he gets a handle on something large and hard to make sense of: the American way of criminal justice." (Ted Conover, New York Times, May 1, 2005).

Cost: We ask for a $10 donation to cover the cost of food and beverage.

Effective Job Search Strategy: Finding the Right Opportunity in the Least Amount of Time
September 04, 2014 from 12:30 pm to 1:15 pm EDT
Webinar for Alumni and Students (access via Internet and Phone)

Speaker: Steve Dalton, Author of "The 2-Hour Job Search: Using Technology to Get the Job Faster" & Senior Associate Director, Career Management Center, Duke University's Fuqua School of Business. Random House published Dalton's debut book in March 2012 and its concepts are now taught at over fifty universities worldwide. Dalton has appeared in the Financial Times, Wall St. Journal, and Forbes.com, and he is a regular contributor at The Huffington Post.


The ability to predictably secure internal referrals is a fundamental skill for job seekers, new hires, and experienced professionals alike. In this session, The 2-Hour Job Search author and full-time Duke MBA career coach Steve Dalton outlines an exact process - rather than a series of tips - for effectively turning strangers into advocates, leading to more interviews, better internal networks, and higher sales. The 2-Hour Job Search methodology provides an alternative to online job posting "black holes" and speculative cold calling by turning the difficult topic of networking into something finite, easy to implement, and repeatable.

Chemistry Colloquium - Alice Ting
September 04, 2014 from 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm EDT
Morningside Campus Room 209 Havemeyer 3000 Broadway New York, NY 10027

“Spatially-resolved proteomic mapping of living cells using engineered peroxidase reporters”

Presented by Alice Ting, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Hosted by Dali Sames

Thursday, September 4, 2014 at 4:30pm

Room 209 Havemeyer

Abstract: Microscopy and mass spectrometry (MS)-based proteomics are complementary techniques: the former provides spatiotemporal information in living cells, but only for a handful of recombinant proteins at a time, while the latter can detect thousands of endogenous proteins simultaneously, but only in lysed samples. In this talk, I will describe a new technology that combines the strengths of microscopy and MS by generating spatially and temporally-resolved proteomic maps of endogenous proteins within living cells. The method relies on a genetically targetable peroxidase enzyme that biotinylates nearby proteins, which are subsequently identified by MS. We used this approach to identify 495 proteins within the human mitochondrial matrix, 127 intermembrane space proteins, and 137 outer mitochondrial membrane proteins, including 76 proteins that have never before been assigned to mitochondria. The labeling was exceptionally specific, able to distinguish between inner membrane proteins facing the matrix versus the IMS. Our catalog also revised the sub-mitochondrial localizations for several well-studied proteins, with the new assignments confirmed by electron microscopy.

Bio: Alice Ting was born in Taiwan and emigrated with her family to the U.S. at age three. She grew up in Dallas, Texas, with two younger brothers. At age 15, Alice moved to Denton, Texas, to complete her last two years of high school at the Texas Academy of Math and Science. There, she developed a strong interest in organic chemistry, first through coursework, then through tutoring the subject, then through research in the laboratory of Prof. Roderick Bates.

Alice received her undergraduate degree in chemistry from Harvard. She started working in the laboratory ofProf. E. J. Corey as a freshman, and remained there until her graduation in 1996. In the Corey lab, Alice worked on the development of catalysts for asymmetric dihydroxylation and on the cloning of lanosterol synthase genes. As a Harvard undergraduate, Alice also served as a TA for Stuart Schreiber’s Chemistry 27 course. These experiences cemented her interest in biological chemistry.

As a graduate student with Prof. Peter Schultz, first at Berkeley from 1996-1999, then at Scripps from 1999-2000, Alice worked on unnatural amino acid mutagenesis, single molecule imaging, and kinase engineering by phage display. After graduation in 2000, Alice moved across the street to UCSD, to complete a post-doc withProf. Roger Tsien. There, her work led to the development of fluorescent reporters for imaging kinase activities in living cells.

Alice Ting has been a faculty member in the MIT Chemistry Department since 2002. Her work has been on the development of probes and reporters for live cell imaging. To simultaneously harness the power of genetics and the power of chemistry, Alice’s lab has exploited enzymes that act on both protein and small-molecule substrates. Her lab has developed new technologies for imaging protein trafficking, protein-protein interactions, and enzymatic activity. Current research interests include imaging studies of synapse formation/development, and in vitro evolution of novel enzyme function.

Alice Ting has received the NIH Director's Pioneer Award, the Arthur C. Cope Scholar Award, the McKnight Technological Innovations in Neuroscience Award, the Technology Review TR35 Award, the Sloan Foundation Research Fellowship, the Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Award, and the Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award. She was appointed to the Ellen Swallow Richards Chair in 2011.
