Medical Museum Science Cafe-On the Centenary of the 1918 Influenza: Lessons from the Past and Planning for the Future External Event Page
Silver Spring, Maryland
Venue: 2500
An influenza pandemic occurred in 1918-1919 that resulted in at least 50 million deaths worldwide, and 675,000 deaths in the U.S. The causative agent was not identified at that time. In the late 1990s, the genetic sequence of the 1918 influenza virus was determined using fragments of viral RNA preserved in autopsy tissue samples from U.S. soldiers who died of the 1918 flu that were housed in the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology. Using this sequence, scientists were able to rebuild the virus for study. Information learned is helping us prepare for future pandemics and to develop new treatments and vaccines to prevent influenza. ///// PRESENTER: Jeffery K.

Michelle Modest: Examining Southern Hemisphere Humpback Whale Migratory Routes from Foraging to Breeding Grounds - American Cetacean Society - SF Bay Chapter External Event Page
Sausalito, California
Southern hemisphere humpback whale populations spend a large portion of the year breeding in tropical waters and migrating between this region and their summer feeding grounds in the Antarctic. They travel great distances during their seasonal migration, the farthest migration of any mammal, with distances up to 11,706 miles recorded. Despite this impressive feat, minimal information is known about their migratory journeys. We have tagged numerous humpback whales with ARGOS satellite tags in the Antarctic feeding grounds over the past several years and have collected data on complete tracks from Antarctica to the western coast of South America. This is the first study to examine humpback whale migratory routes from foraging to breeding grounds, and one of the few to have a workable sample size. We will use this information to create a comprehensive overview of migratory behaviors and characteristics. ///// Open to the public and is free of charge. Donations are greatly appreciated and will fund cetacean research and education programs. ///// Biography: Michelle Modest originally hails from State College, Pennsylvania. She received her BA from Yale University, and then went on Imperial College London to complete an MSc in Conservation Science. At Imperial, she worked with Brandon Southall to complete her thesis titled Anthropogenic noise pollution: Understanding the effects of mid-frequency active sonar on Risso's dolphin behavior. She is now a first year PhD student in Ari Friedlaender's lab at UC Santa Cruz, and is very excited to spend the next 5 years investigating the effects of climate change on humpback whales in the Western Antarctic Peninsula. Michelle is a past ACS San Francisco Bay Chapter research grant awardee.
Open to the public and is free of charge. Donations are greatly appreciated and will fund cetacean research and education programs.

Fall Lecture Series: Black Flags, Blue Waters External Event Page
Newport News, Virginia
Set against the backdrop of the Age of Exploration, Black Flags, Blue Waters reveals the dramatic and surprising history of American piracy's "Golden Age" - spanning the late 1600s through the early 1700s - when lawless pirates plied the coastal waters of North America and the Indian Ocean. In this talk and slide presentation, best-selling author, Eric Jay Dolin, illustrates how American colonists at first supported these outrageous pirates in an early display of colonial solidarity against the Crown, and then violently opposed them. Dolin depicts the star pirates of this period, among them towering Blackbeard, ill-fated Captain Kidd, and sadistic Edward Low, who delighted in torturing his prey. Upending popular misconceptions and cartoonish stereotypes, Black Flags, Blue Waters provides a wholly original account of the seafaring outlaws whose raids reflect the precarious nature of American colonial life.
Free for Members; $5 for guests.

SOUTHBOUND: PHOTOGRAPHS OF AND ABOUT THE NEW SOUTH External Event Page
Charleston, South Carolina
Southbound embraces the conundrum of its name. To be southbound is to journey to a place in flux, radically transformed over recent decades, yet also to the place where the past resonates most insistently in the United States. To be southbound is also to confront the weight of preconceived notions about this place, thick with stereotypes, encoded in the artistic, literary, and media records. Southbound engages with and unsettles assumed narratives about this contested region by providing fresh perspectives for understanding the complex admixture of history, geography, and culture that constitutes today’s New South. Southbound: Photographs of and about the New South is an unprecedented photography exhibition co-curated by Mark Sloan, director and chief curator of the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art, and Mark Long, professor of political science, both of whom are on the faculty of the College of Charleston, in South Carolina. Southbound is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation. The exhibition will debut simultaneously at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art and the City Gallery at Waterfront Park.
