Event Description:
Speakers: Leon G. Billings and Thomas C. Jorling

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 lecture explores the Conference with the House Public Works Committee as it relates to the Clean Air Act- how it began, the nature of the political process, and personalities of the committee and other staff. It will go over the role of acting Chair Bob Jones, the House Hearings and Conference with the House, and the role of major federal assistance to construct municipal waste treatment plants. 

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.

Cognitive Radio Networks: An Information Theoretic Perspective

 

Speaker: Shlomo Shamai, Distinguished Professor, Chair in Communications, Technion - Israel Institute of Technology Abstract

 

The timely concept of cognitive radio networks will be reviewed, emphasizing the information theoretic viewpoint. Following a short introduction reviewing standard approaches, we focus on the information-theoretic paradigm, We examine simple models, under idealized assumptions, highlighting the impact of cognition and cooperation. Theoretical results and their implications are demonstrated by examining specific problems, namely: Generalized encoding schemes, accounting for the coding structure of the primary user; Simple outer bounds on rate regions; Capacity of the cognitive setting in the degraded message set case; Results for a class of Z-channels and Cognitive Wyner based cellular models. A short summary and an outlook conclude the overview. The technical contributions of collaborators in joint research on cognitive radio is gratefully acknowledged. Speaker Bio: Shlomo ShamaiShlomo Shamai (Shitz) received the B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, in 1975, 1981 and 1986 respectively.

Memorial (the award winning poem by Alice Oswald) is a list of all the soldiers who died in the ninth year of the Trojan war. It's text is a selective translation of Homer's Iliad, missing out the central narrative and focusing instead on its many marginal narratives of ordinary lives and deaths. Alice Oswald will read from Memorial and also from her recent piece, Tithonus - 46 minutes in the life of the Dawn. This poem, a response to the Odyssey, tells the story of Tithonus, whom the Dawn married and made immortal, forgetting to ask that he should not grow old. Spoken in the voice of Tithonus, the poem documents the passing of a single English dawn. You could describe it as a selective translation of the Odyssey, missing out everything but the formulaic line: 'as soon as dawn appeared, early-born and pink-fingered', which it keeps exposing to the light and then translating and re-translating. Like the Odyssey, it is a poem about survival.

Program Participants:
Alice Oswald lives in Devon and is married with three children. Dart, her second collection, won the T. S. Eliot Prize in 2002. Her third collection, Woods etc, was a Poetry Book Society Choice and was shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best Collection and the T. S. Eliot Prize. A Sleepwalk on the Severn appeared in 2009, as did Weeds and Wild Flowers, her collaboration with the artist Jessica Greenman.

Mary Gordon's most recent work is The Liar's Wife, a collection of four novellas, published by Pantheon in August 2014. She is the author of six novels, including Final Payments, Pearl, and The Love of My Youth; the memoirs The Shadow Man and Circling My Mother; and The Stories of Mary Gordon, which was awarded the Story Prize. She has received numerous other honors, including a Lila Wallace-Reader′s Digest Writers′ Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and an Academy Award for Literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. She teaches at Barnard College and lives in New York City.

The Earth Institute is pleased to present a Panel Event and Reception: Origins of Environmental Law.

WATCH LIVE WEBCAST HERE

In 2013, the government shut down for two weeks unable to agree on virtually anything; but in the 1970's, the United States Congress enacted a series of environmental laws that chartered a new course for our future. The Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and Superfund Act are just some of the foundational environmental laws of that time that have shaped vast improvements in the nation's environment - and continue to do so. And yet, no new piece of major environmental legislation has been enacted since the 1990 amendments to the Clean Air Act - almost 25 years ago. What has changed since then?

Join us for a discussion about this unique time in our history from the principal authors of those laws themselves. This fall, Columbia students have a unique opportunity to learn about the historical, legislative, and political process that led to the implementation of these laws in a class taught by Leon G. Billings and Thomas C. Jorling, the two senior majority and minority staff members who led the Senate environment subcommittee which originated and developed the legislation. This panel will provide some insight into the legislative and human dynamic in the 1970's versus today, and discuss how public policy shapes how environments and organizations are managed. 

6:00-7:15  Introduction, panel discussion and Q&A

Reception to follow.

For the most part this discussion has flown under the radar of doctors, historians and public health professionals. To the extent they have participated, the professionals and scholars have been called in as "experts," as witnesses, to be either listened to, or rejected, by juries and judges.

This talk will look at a number of cases over the course of the past two decades in which Professor Rosner has participated. The talk will place his experience in the context of a much longer history of how courts have been used and abused in a contentious struggle over the health of working people and consumers faced by occupational and environmental dangers.

8th Annual Otolaryngology Update in New York City

Info:Click Here to Visit Website.

This is our 8th Annual Update in Otolaryngology course; the host department has rotated between Columbia and Weill Cornell and all Updates have been affiliated with New York Presbyterian Hospital. Otolaryngologist/Head and Neck Surgeons practice both the medical and surgical aspects of our specialty. Advances can come rapidly from different areas. Most educational courses focus on a particular part of the specialty, such as sinus surgery, otology, or facial plastic surgery. Therefore, there is a strong need for a comprehensive update course in the New York City area. This course will allow the participants to receive a cogent but comprehensive update and review on all aspects of the specialty, at a single course. Similar courses are held in other parts of the country, and are highly-rated and well-attended. This course is designed for practicing otolaryngologists and residents in training nationally.

It is intended that this Columbia University CME activity will lead to improved patient care. At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

• Identify current evaluation and treatment of common otologic disorders. 
• Evaluate the latest treatment for diseases of the skull base.
• Distinguish different approaches to rhinoplasty and facial plastic reconstruction.
• Analyze the diagnostic evaluation of patients with voice and swallowing disorders.
• Identify the current role of surgery in the management of patients with head and neck cancer.
• Analyze the current evaluation, medical and surgical treatments for common problems in pediatric ENT.
• Evaluate the basic and advanced techniques in rhinology and sinus surgery.

Legislative Networks in the Ukrainian Parliament: Will Any Key Players Survive After the Elections?

Date:October 23, 2014 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm EDT
Location:International Affairs Building, Room 1219
Contact:For further information regarding this event, please contact Ilke Denizli by sending email to zid2000@columbia.edu .
Info:Click Here to Visit Website.

Please join the Ukrainian Studies Program at the Harriman Institute for a talk by Tetiana Kostiuchenko.

The presentation will include the outcomes of the network study of legislative connections between the Ukrainian MPs of the current and former Parliaments since 2007. The central research questions to be covered are: Who are the ‘influential legislators’ among the current parliamentarians? Do they have any common past connecting them together? What kind of joint legislative activities did they conduct? Do they meet ‘lustration’ principles or are they affiliated with the old regime? These questions lead to a debate about the changing structure of the legislative network and possible changes to occur after the pre-term parliamentary elections.

Tetiana Kostiuchenko is Senior Lecturer in the Sociology Department of the National University of “Kyiv-Mohyla Academy” (Ukraine) and Carnegie Visiting Research Fellow in the Department of Sociology in the University of Minnesota during Fall 2014. Ms. Kostiuchenko’s dissertation focuses on the structure and features of the political elite network in Ukraine from 2007 to 2012. She has also studied the role of various social groups in state functioning, and is working on the application of network analysis for studying the interaction of social agents.

This event is free and open to the public.

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:

Title: The order-chaos phase transition for a general class of complex Boolean networks.

Abstract: We consider a model for heterogeneous gene regulatory networks that is an "annealed approximation" of Kauffmann's (1969) original random Boolean networks. In this model, genes are represented by the nodes of a random directed graph G_n on n vertices with specified degree distribution, and the interactions among the genes are approximated by an appropriate threshold contact process (in which a vertex with at least one occupied in-neighbor at time t will be occupied at time t+1 with probability q, and vacant otherwise) on G_n. We characterize the order-chaos phase transition curve segregating the chaotic and ordered random Boolean networks.

This talk is based on a recent work (http://arxiv.org/abs/1310.4474).

Bio: I am an Assistant Professor in the Dept of of Mathematics at City College, CUNY, New York. Prior to this I worked as a Courant Instructor at New York University. I completed my Ph.D in Operations Research with concentration in Probability & Statistics from Cornell University, under the supervision of Prof. Rick Durrett in 2011.
