Henriques: Extended Conformal Field Theories from Frobenius Algebras (Part 4)
Andre Henriques, University of Utrecht, Netherlands The idea of extending quantum field theories to manifolds of lower dimension was first proposed by Dan Freed in the nineties. In the case of conformal eld theory (CFT), we are talking of an extension of the Atiyah-Segal axioms where one replaces the bordism category of Riemann surfaces by a suitable bordism 2-category, whose objects are points, whose morphism are 1-manifolds, and whose 2-morphisms are pieces of Riemann surface. There is a beau

"I Was More of a Citizen": A Puerto Rican Garment Worker Describes Discrimination in the 1920s
We generally think of Puerto Rican migration to the U.S. mainland as largely a post-World War II phenomenon, since more than 800,000 Puerto Ricans came to the United States between 1940 and 1969. But immigration actually started much earlier in the century; between 1915 and 1930 more than 50,000 Puerto Rican migrants headed for the United States--especially New York City. The new immigrants faced a mixed reception, particularly from immigrants from other countries. In this interview for the radi
Kids in the Hall of Biodiversity
This biodiversity Web site for kids, part of the museum's Kids in Our Halls program, was produced by high school interns at the Museum. In includes these sections: What Do You Think About Extinction?, an interview with kids visiting the Hall of Biodiversity; Did You Know?, a collection of fun facts that includes challenges to be solved; a five-question interactive biodiversity quiz; a Q&A interview with the head of the museum's Ichthyology Department; brief articles about the origins of chocolat
Often sung in the daily lives of early African-American slaves as a calling language, the blues often narrated the emotions and feelings of the singer. Students will develop an awareness of music, poetry writing, and media literacy.
The purpose of this activity is to observe the type and cover of clouds including contrails. Students observe which of ten types of clouds and how many of three types of contrails are visible and how much of the sky is covered by clouds (other than contrails) and how much is covered by contrails. Intended outcomes are that students learn how to make estimates from observations and how to categorize specific clouds following general descriptions for the categories. They will learn the meteorologi
Electrical Conductivity Protocol
The purpose of this resource is to measure the conductivity of water at a freshwater hydrology site. Students calibrate and take electrical conductivity measurements using an electrical conductivity meter. Students estimate the total dissolved solids from the electrical conductivity measurements.
Viscosity of the Mantle: Constraints from Post-glacial Rebound
In this lab, students determine the viscosity of a relatively viscous fluid by measuring the rate of rebound of a partially submerged object following a rapid decrease in its mass. This experiment is carried out in the context of an analysis of post-glacial rebound as a measurement of the viscosity of the mantle. Learning goals, context for use, teaching tips, materials, assessment tips and related resources are provided.

Mid-year salary increase coming for most of staff
We are pleased to announce that the majority of Vanderbilt staff members will receive a half-percent, mid-year salary increase in January in recognition of an ongoing strong performance during what is, by most measures, still a very uncertain economic climate. This one-time increase will be awarded to regular status (non-union, non-temporary) Vanderbilt staff members whokeep reading »
alpacas for sale Alpacas are South American camelid and related to llamas, vicunas and guanacos. Alpaca fiber are very stronger as well as warmer than wool. Alpaca are native to South America and were originally found in Ecuador, Bolivia and northern Chile. Because of similar appearances alpacas were thought to have descended from IIamas. In 2001 researchers proved that alpacas are more closely related to the vicuna.
