Solar Display

Designing a Campus-Wide Utility Monitoring Dashboard (CDash) Prototype at Sonoma State University

Dr. Farid Farahmand, Engineering Department

The purpose of this project is to develop a simple proof-of-concept public dashboard platform that can display various environmental and utility data. In order to demonstrate full potentials of the dashboard, we plan to develop a working solar station which can measure the solar energy, temperature, and air humidity in real-time, as shown in Fig. 1. The data received from the solar station will be displayed on the dashboard for students and public to view and analyze. We believe though developing this prototype, we will be able to learn about various challenges and benefits of a scalable dashboard, including technical IT issues, general community interest, and possible educational advantages.

Our long-term vision in developing this prototype is to be able to consolidate and arrange available campus-wide statistics, metrics related to campus electricity, water, recycled water and solid waste, and data reported by various sources, including utility meters, on a single Campus-Wide Utility Monitoring Dashboard (CDash), as shown in Fig. 2. The web page will be readily available to the campus and the local community, as well as the Chancellor’s office. Though such system we can provide critical insights about campus sustainability practices and their effectiveness. Furthermore, CDash can act as a great educational tool for students to learn about their own ecological footprint. For example, CDash offers the opportunity for students to collaborate with the campus community on real-life projects.

Yosemite Toads & Yosemite Soundscapes

Local TED Fellow and ecologist, Eric Berlow, will discuss pack stock in the wilderness of the Sierra Nevada and their effect on the near extinct Yosemite Toad. In this short talk Eric hopes illustrate that a) science has an important role to play in mediating legal and political conflict over conservation policy, and b) science has a limited ability to address the emotional drivers of conservation conflict. Hence, the importance of collaboration science and art.  

Musician / composer Patrick Cress will perform a suite of movements called Yosemite Soundscapes, weaving together field recordings taken from trips to Yosemite’s alpine meadows, with his own compositions for saxophone and bass clarinet. The performance also includes video projection, taken in Yosemite in 2017, after record snowfall the previous winter.

One Love Relationship Violence Escalation Workshop

One Love Relationship Violence Escalation Workshop

The One Love Foundation was created in 2010 to honor the memory of Yeardley Love, a University of Virginia senior who was beaten to death by her ex-boyfriend just weeks short of graduation. Prior to that day, Yeardley’s friends and family had no sense she was in danger.  In the months that followed, they were stunned to learn that relationship violence is something that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men in the US will experience in his/her lifetime. Research also shows that young women ages 16-24 are 3x greater risk and have limited awareness of this fact.  One Love’s focus today is changing these statistics by sparking conversations in schools and communities around the country.

One Love works to give others the information that Yeardley and her friends and family didn’t have about what unhealthy and potentially dangerous relationship behaviors look like, empowering them to help themselves and their friends.  To do this, One Love focuses on building emotionally-engaging, powerful content and tools that meet people where they are, show them the relevance of this issue in their own lives, and inspire them to join a movement for change.

Earth Week 2018: Awake, A Dream from Standing Rock

The film tells the dramatic story of the historic “No Dakota Access Pipeline” protests (#NODAPL) native-led peaceful resistance at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota, which captured the world’s attention as one of the biggest stories of 2016. Tens of thousands of activists traveled to North Dakota from all over the world to take a stand alongside the “water protectors”– activists opposing construction of the 3.7 billion dollar Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL). The pipeline is proposed to transport fracked oil from North Dakota’s Bakken oil fields directly underneath the Missouri River on sovereign Lakota land, the only water source for the Standing Rock reservation and the drinking water source for 17 million Americans downstream.

Two for the Road

Two for the Road

"Welcome to one of the funniest, saddest, most brittle and brutal American comedies ever made about the long, long road of wedded ambivalence, with Albert Finney and Audrey Hepburn as your unassailably glamorous guides. Stanley Donen’s TWO FOR THE ROAD, an alternately sweet and wrenching set of scenes from a marriage was one of the first unsuitable-for-children movies ever to play at Radio City Music Hall. The film was not taken as the act of épater-la-bourgeoisie rebellion that many of 1967’s more famous movies were felt to embody, but the sting of Frederic Raphael’s Oscar-nominated screenplay is as acute as any movie of the era, and the sophistication of its structure remains remarkable." - Mark Harris, Film Comment

Released: 1967

Modeling and Computational Simulations of Pulsating Soft Corals
Apr

4:00 PM16:00

Modeling and Computational Simulations of Pulsating Soft Corals

Soft corals of the family Xeniidae are a subset of octocorals that actively pulse their tentacles. Evidence indicates that the pulsing helps facilitate photosynthesis and
decreases photorespiration of the symbiotic algae that live on the corals. One way to investigate this complex behavior of pulsing is through mathematical modeling and
numerical simulations. This presentation will be an overview of numerical methods for modeling the coral motion and the resulting fluid flow, and then we couple the
resulting flow with advection and diffusion of a concentration, since these play a role in photosynthesis and photorespiration.

How did planning and planners respond to the Fall 2017 fires in Sonoma and Napa Counties? What are we doing now and what does the future hold? Should the focus be on rebuilding fast – restoring people to their pre-fire lives as quickly and fully as possible – or rebuilding for an environmentally, socially, and economically better future?

Panelists:

  • Tennis Wick, AICP, Director, Permit and Resource Management Department, Sonoma County

  • David Morrison, Director, Planning, Building, and Environmental Services, Napa County

Supply Chain Portraits

Christopher Evans’ Supply Chain Portraits chart the rough, intricate terrain of relationships between consumers, natural resources, indigenous tribes, and the world’s poor living at the precarious, jagged edge of the global economy. Each painting begins with a substance that is a simple part of the artist’s own daily life: the gasoline in his car, the wood of his kitchen table, or the paint on his canvas. Hundreds of drawings, sub-paintings, and texts are arranged in concentric arcs forming a web of connections from Evans himself to specific individuals at the other end of each global supply chain
