Wildlife and Drones: How We Can Reduce Disturbance While Capturing Images, Alicia Amerson - American Cetacean Society - SF Bay Chapter
Sausalito, California
Our California coastline is home to a large biodiverse group of species from seabirds to whales, dolphins, porpoises, and more. Some species of marine wildlife are adapting to the ever-changing coastline and managing to survive alongside the increase of human activities in these wild spaces. ///// Drones can be purchased easily and flown without a license. Currently, we don't know the number of drones that are flown on the coast every day in California, but we do know it is increasing. Industry projections show that at least 7 Million drones will be in the sky by 2020. Human use of drones along the coastline can cause disturbance in sensitive areas for this wide range of species. //// Alicia Amerson approaches drone stewardship through best available science and outreach to protect marine wildlife. Wildlife can be easily disturbed by drones. In this presentation, Amerson will share how we can use six simple steps we ensure each flight is ethical, safe, and green for wildlife and humans. //// Alicia Amerson is a marine biologist, drone pilot, podcast host, and entrepreneur. She works to protect global biodiversity and empower communities through technology, science, and art. She is the founder of Alimosphere, a small woman-owned business working with conservation leaders to advance projects that benefit wildlife and humans. She earned a BS in biology from Eastern New Mexico University. After graduation she worked on environmental remediation projects at Los Alamos National Laboratory where she gained over 10,000 hours of project management experience and earned her PMP certificate. In 2015 she completed her Master's degree in marine biodiversity and conservation from Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO). At SIO she focused on whale-watching tourism and the use of guidelines or regulations in the industry along the entire Pacific coast in Canada, the U.S. and Mexico. She was the first California Sea Grant fellow to work for Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom - now California Governor Newsom. Recently she launc

Mid-Atlantic Germanic Society 2019 Spring Conference External Event Page
Laurel, Maryland
Venue: DoubleTree by Hilton
Program includes: Teresa Steinkamp McMillin, CG - He Took Her Name: Understanding German Farm Names In certain geographic areas of Germany, the custom of German farm names has been in existence since about 1000 A.D. In this custom, a farm carried the surname and anyone who inherited that farm assumed that name as his surname. Usually this was a son of the farmer, but if it was a daughter, her husband would have to change his surname to hers. This lecture explains some of the common pitfalls a researcher may encounter when researching in one of these areas and how to overcome them. //// Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Hanover Military Records: Military records for Hanover prior to 1866 are available to researchers in the United States through the Family History Library. Hanover’s military records are largely untapped by American researchers because English-language finding aids are non-existent … /// Boost Your Germanic Research: Understand Historical Jurisdictions - Meyer’s Gazetteer is great for determining jurisdictions as of 1912. Germany was not a country until 1871... /// Hunting For Henry: A Case Study Using Collaterals Henry Steren was a German immigrant who lived in Quincy, Illinois. The United States records that were created about him indicate only that he was from the Province of Hanover in Germany.

Seizing the Moment: The Evolution in Action Photography External Event Page
Newport News, Virginia
The Evolution of Action Photography will feature never before seen images from The Horace Havemeyer III Collection along with work by contemporary photographers, showing the evolution of marine photography from a documentary approach to more of an artistic perspective. The Havemeyer Collection includes gelatin silver prints by early 20th-century master marine photographers Edwin Levick and Morris Rosenfeld, as well as work by others. ///// Levick and Rosenfeld pushed the limits of the photographic medium, capturing exciting, point-of-view images over a nine-year span. Levick’s work often placed the viewer squarely on deck, seemingly as part of the action, while Rosenfeld worked for Levick before he opened his own studio in 1910. ///// This one of a kind maritime collection was donated to The Mariners’ Museum in 2015 as a significant gift in memory of Horace Havemeyer III, a native of New York and an avid sailor. Havemeyer’s grandfather purchased these photographs from Levick; and over the years, they were passed down to his son and then grandson, Horace III, who founded Metropolis magazine in 1981. He served as its president until his death in 2014. His wife, Eugenie C. Havemeyer, is now at the helm of this publication, which is considered the vanguard of architecture and design today.

SHEILA HICKS - Campo Abierto (Open Field) External Event Page
Miami Beach, Florida
Grouping works of art from various periods, Campo Abierto (Open Field) explores the formal, social and environmental aspects of landscape that have been present, yet rarely examined, throughout Sheila Hicks’ expansive career. Prompting contemplations on collaboration, dialogue and discussion, the exhibition is rooted in the reconfiguration of Escalade Beyond Chromatic Lands (2016-2017), the artist’s vast installation produced for the Arsenale at the Venice Biennale in 2017. The exhibition brings together several large-format installations, as well as more intimately-scaled works, that utilize and transform the architecture of The Bass’ upstairs galleries. The selection of works in Campo Abierto (Open Field) foreground the museum’s context in South Florida, a multilingual locus traversed by complex immigration waves and patterns, alongside environmental concerns.

AAM 2019 Annual Meeting and Museum Expo External Event Page
New Orleans, Louisiana
Venue: New Orleans Marriott & Convention Center
oday’s museums are re-examining their role and connection to communities in new ways. There is a growing understanding that our institutions’ long-term viability and financial sustainability is inextricably linked to our ability to be relevant, magnetic, and inclusive. Digital technologies are refining and improving traditional functions such as ticketing, marketing, and fundraising – in addition to driving personalized experiences and new abilities for museums to connect with increasingly tech-savvy audiences. Innovative partnerships with for-profit companies and within mutually aligned sectors like health and education may provide museums access to the financial and technical capacity to help them scale their work. At the 2019 AAM Meeting and MuseumExpo in New Orleans, we will explore how museums are meeting these challenges head-on. We will learn from each other’s trials and errors and connect with colleagues who can help us grow and tackle our own challenges. //// Also, Exhibit at MuseumExpo is the largest gathering of museum professionals. Connect with high-level decision-makers such as directors, curators, financial officers, exhibit design professionals, educators and registrars. Take advantage of the opportunity to meet face-to-face with qualified buyers to showcase your new and innovative products and services to more than 5,000 museum professionals seeking cost- and time-saving solutions for the museum field.
