Students Talking Science Truth To Power

The full hour is devoted to UCI’s Science Policy Group board members: Richard Prince, Christie Mortales, and Terra White; accompanied by fellow activists Alex McDonald and Nick Paganini, an entirely revved up group of STEM graduate students, and graduate student turned professional, and undergraduate respectively – who refuse to take the current political status quo sitting down as they promote science policy literacy amongst their members. Listeners, including STEAM students, will be invited to join in the special and ongoing events convened by SPG. Details for the upcoming roundtable convening on January 18th 4:30-8:00 at the UCI Student Union are available at: https://clubs.uci.edu/spg/. Additional resources are available at: http://www.climatepedia.org/. “Brews and Brains” gatherings’ details are posted on the MeetUp page of the same name.

Jerusalem Examined

UCI School of Social Ecology urban studies professor Scott Bollens, for the whole hour, offers a full consideration of what is taking place in and around Jerusalem. He brings nuance and laser like focus on the facts in the ground around this divided city, up to and during the time of the White House’s recent proposal to designate Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel. His latest book, Trajectories of Conflict and Peace: Jerusalem and Belfast Since 1994, comes fresh off the Routledge Press later this month. Media coverage also recommended for the look and the feel of Jerusalem also includes: https://www.btselem.org/ and http://www.ir-amim.org.il/en.
