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.

"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

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.

The Program in Economic Policy Management (PEPM) is a 12-month program for mid-career professionals leading to the Master of Public Administration degree. Students start the full-time program in May and finish the following May. PEPM focuses on training professionals and policymakers in the skills required for effective design and implementation of economic policy in market economies, with a strong emphasis on the economic problems of developing and transition economies. The full-time program is especially suited for mid-career professionals who may only be able to take off a short time from their current employment. In addition to our economic policy focus, students may opt to focus on global energy management and policy, which offers a very strong set of courses focused on traditional energy markets as well as alternative energy. PEPM was formed in cooperation with the World Bank and still maintains its connection to the Bank, through our Joint Japan/World Bank Graduate Scholarship program, providing full scholarships each year for up to 12 students from emerging economies.

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

To gain OCI access, students must attend an On-Campus Interviewing Power Half Hour workshop or complete an On-Campus Recruiting Program Overview online training (http://www.careereducation.columbia.edu/OCI-) and sign off on the policies and procedures. Students who attend this workshop will be granted OCI access within two business days of the training.

In this training, we will provide an overview of CCE services and the ways in which students 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 OCR 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 use available resources while navigating the job/internships search and interview process.

For more information about OCI, go to http://www.careereducation.columbia.edu/findajob/lionshare/oci or call 212-854-9167
