The Middle East and The Arab Spring: Where Are We Now and Why?

Date:February 10, 2016 from 12:10 pm to 1:10 pm EST
Location:Morningside Campus,
Columbia University,
Jerome Greene Hall, Room 105
Contact:For further information regarding this event, please contact Randi Aho by sending email to randi.aho@law.columbia.edu .

Please join us for a discussion with Ambassador Ahmed Fathalla regarding the current prospects for the Arab Spring and the future of human rights. Arab states before the 2010 Arab Spring suffered on three levels: political, economic, and social. Politically, undemocratic regimes were in control for decades. This led to economic deterioration, deepening of corruption and inequitable distribution of income and wealth. Social injustice thus became a fact of life. The Arab Spring promised to be a starting point for real reforms and societal adjustments.  Unfortunately new challenges and developments in the last five years on the national, regional, and international levels -- particularly relating to security, stability, and societal harmonization -- have posed real obstacles to achieving these goals, leading in some cases to slower reforms, and in others to a total setback.

A Conversation with Mohamed El-Erian on The Only Game in Town: Central Banks, Instability, and Avoiding the Next Collapse

Mohamed A. El-Erian is chief economic advisor at Allianz, the corporate parent of PIMCO, where he served as CEO and co-CIO, and chair of President Obama's Global Development Council. Author of the bestselling When Markets Collide, El-Erian is a columnist for Bloomberg View and a Financial Times contributing editor. He was named to Foreign Policy's list of Top 100 Global Thinkers for four consecutive years (2009-2012), and named by that journal as one of the 500 most powerful people on the planet in 2013.

In his new book, The Only Game in Town, El-Erian explains how and why our central banks became the essential, if not only, policymakers in the global economy, and why this role is increasingly unsustainable.

Introduction by Richard Clarida, C. Lowell Harriss Professor of Economics and Professor of International and Public Affairs

Moderated by Patricia Mosser, Senior Research Scholar and Director, Initiative on Central Banking, Columbia SIPA

Net Neutrality: The Battle in India

RSVP: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/talk-on-the-net-neutrality-battle-in-india-tickets-21356153831 

WHEN: Wednesday, February 10, 2016, 4:00-5:00pm.

WHO: Nikhil Pahwa, Editor & Publisher, MediaNama, and leader of the citizen’s movement in India to save net neutrality

WHAT: A talk on how and why the fight in India to save net neutrality began, why it is important for India, and what it has achieved. Pahwa will explore the choices that a developing country like India has to make in order to bring people online, and why Facebook's Free Basics has received such significant opposition in the country.

There will be a Q&A session, moderated by Computer Science Professor Vishal Misra, a leading researcher on net neutrality who has advised the citizen’s movement in India on technical matters.

BACKGROUND: India has the second highest Internet user base in the world but close to a billion people are still offline. In the heated debate over how best to increase web access, Facebook threw its weight behind Free Basics, a service that lets people access certain websites and online services without paying data charges. But in giving competitive advantages to some websites and not others, Free Basics violates the principle of net neutrality. To rally support for net neutrality and oppose Free Basics, Internet and consumer activists, led by Nikhil Pahwa, formed a coalition in March 2015.

In response, over a million responses were sent to regulators: a first in the history of India.

WHERE: Davis Auditorium, CEPSR Columbia University, Morningside Heights campus Broadway at West 116th Street, Manhattan

CUSP Speaker Series: Kartik Chandran | Engineered Resource Recovery for Sustainable Urban Development

Join the Columbia College Alumni Association and the Columbia Undergraduate Scholars Program for the next CUSP Speaker Series lecture featuring Kartik Chandran. This is a unique opportunity for College alumni to join into a session with current students. Space is limited and the program is free.

 

Water reuse and recycling offer a resource and energy efficient alternate to continued water mining for meeting potable and non-potable demands. By some accounts, untreated sewage streams contain about an order of magnitude higher resources and energy compared to the resources invested to ‘treat’ them to receiving water quality standards. Accordingly, a newer model of extracting resources and energy from ‘polluted’ water streams could act as a platform not just to attain the requisite water quality objectives, but also to do so at a lower resource and energy footprint. In this presentation, the prospect of employing engineered resource recovery to drive water reuse and recycling is presented along with some considerations of the fate and transport of emerging chemical contaminants.

 

About the Speaker:

Kartik Chandran is Associate Professor and Director of the Wastewater Treatment and Climate Change and CUBES programs at Columbia University. His work focuses on the sustainable management and re-engineering of the global N-cycle along with its links to the water, energy and carbon cycles. Prof. Chandran has pioneered the direction of characterizing and mitigating nitrogenous greenhouse gas emissions from wastewater treatment facilities nationwide and globally. He also leads the Mainstream Deammonification track of the USEPA-WERF National Center on Nutrient Management. Some recent efforts of his group include engineered resource recovery from ‘waste’ streams through flexible biological platforms for carbon cycling. Select awards and honors received by Prof. Chandran include an invited professorship from the Royal Dutch Academy of Arts and Sciences (2014), induction as fellow of WEF (2013), WERF Paul Busch award (2010), NSF CAREER award (2009) and a NRC-NAS Faculty Fellow (2007).

Organized by the School of the Arts and Office of University Life Film screening followed by a talk with the director, Ramin Bahrani '96CC and Nobel Prize-winning economist and University Professor, Joseph Stiglitz. About the film: “In this timely thriller, charismatic and ruthless businessman, Rick Carver (Academy nominee Michael Shannon), is making a killing by repossessing homes—gaming the real estate market, Wall Street banks and the US government. When he evicts Dennis Nash (Golden Globe nominee Andrew Garfield), a single father trying to care for his mother (Academy Award nominee Laura Dern) and young son (newcomer Noah Lomax), Nash becomes so desperate to provide for his family that he goes to work for Carver—the very man who evicted him in the first place. Carver promises Nash a way to regain his home and earn security for his family, but slyly seduces him into a lifestyle of wealth and glamour. It is a deal-with-the-devil that comes with an increasingly high cost—on Carver's orders, Nash must evict families from their homes. As Nash falls deeper into Carver's web, he finds his situation grows more brutal and dangerous than he ever imagined.”

Two-Dimensional Carbides:
Synthesis, Properties and Applications


Yury Gogotsi

Department of Materials Science and Engineering, and A. J. Drexel Nanomaterials Institute,
Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA 19104, USA; nano.materials.drexel.edu

 

Two-dimensional (2D) solids - the thinnest materials available to us - offer unique properties and a potential path to device miniaturization. The most famous example is graphene, which is an atomically thin layer of carbon atoms bonded together in-plane with sp2 bonds. In 2011, an entirely new family of 2D solids - transition metal carbides (V2C, Ti3C2, Nb4C3, etc.) and nitrides - were discovered by Drexel University scientists [1]. Selective etching of the A-group element from a MAX phase results in formation of 2D Mn+1Xn solids, labeled "MXenes". 17 different 2D carbides and carbonitrides have been reported to date [2-5]. A new sub-family of multi-element ordered MXenes was discovered recently [2]. Structure and properties of numerous MXenes have been predicted by the density functional theory, showing that MXenes can be metallic or semiconducting, depending on their composition, structure and surface termination. Their elastic constants along the basal plane are expected to be higher than that of the binary carbides. Oxygen or OH terminated MXenes, are hydrophilic, but electrically conductive (up to 6000 S/cm). Hydrazine, urea, amines and other polar organic molecules can intercalate MXenes leading to an increase of their c lattice parameter [3]. Colloidal solutions of single- and few-layer MXene flakes can be used to manufacture MXene films with controllable optical and electronic properties. One of the many potential applications for 2D Ti3C2 is in electrical energy storage devices such as batteries, Li-ion capacitors and supercapacitors [3-6]. Cations ranging from Na+ to Mg2+ and Al3+ intercalate MXenes. Ti3C2 paper electrodes, produced by vacuum assisted filtration of an aqueous dispersion of delaminated Ti3C2, show a higher capacity than graphite anodes and also can be charged/discharged at significantly higher rates. They also demonstrate very high intercalation capacitance (up to 1000 F/cm3) [5].

Biography: Yury Gogotsi is Distinguished University Professor and Trustee Chair of Materials Science and Engineering at Drexel University. He is the founding Director of the A.J. Drexel Nanomaterials Institute and Associate Editor of ACS Nano. He works on nanostructured carbons and two-dimensional materials for energy related and biomedical applications. His work on synthesis of carbon and carbide nanomaterials with tunable structure and porosity had a strong impact on the field of capacitive energy storage. He has co-authored 2 books, more than 400 journal papers and obtained more than 50 patents. He has received numerous national and international awards for his research. He was recognized as Highly Cited Researcher by Thomson-Reuters in 2014 and 2015, and elected a Fellow of AAAS, MRS, ECS, RSC and ACerS, and a member of the World Academy of Ceramics.
