Modesto Junior College

Spring science presentations tackle timely topics

The Modesto Area Partners in Science (MAPS) have lined up four spring semester presentations by experts speaking on the timely topics of El Nino, aging and chronic disease, desalination as a source for water, and climate change.  There is no admission charge for the Friday evening events, and parking is also free on both campuses on weekends beginning on Friday at 6 p.m.

The following MAPS presentations will be offered in Spring 2016:

El Niño:  Earth’s Climate Heartbeat presented by Noah Hughes, Professor of Earth Science, MJC
Friday, January 29
7:30 p.m.
Sierra Hall 132 - MJC West Campus

Professor Hughes will discuss the causes and potential consequences of this climate phenomenon and provide an update on the latest status of the current El Niño.

Aging and Chronic Disease - a View from the Aging Side presented by Brian Kennedy, Biologist, CEO and President of the Buck Institute for research on aging.
Friday, February 26
7:30 p.m.
MJC East Campus Auditorium 

The potential to directly impact human health span is emerging from aging research. This approach, if successful, will dramatically impact medical care in this century characterized by a rapidly aging global population.

Can Desalination Solve California’s Water Problems?  presented byTom Luster - analyst with the California Coastal Commission
Friday, March 25
7:30 p.m.
Sierra Hall 132 - MJC West Campus

This presentation will identify some of desalination’s key benefits – its ability to provide a local and reliable water source, its potential to reduce pressure on other water sources – along with some key concerns, such as its relatively high costs, intensive energy use, and its environmental effects.

Everything You Wanted to Know about Climate Change but Were Afraid to Ask presented by Daniel Kammen, University of California, Berkeley, and Linda Rudolph, Public Health Institute
Friday, April 15
6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.
Mary Stuart Rogers Student Center - MJC West Campus

Dr. Rudolph will discuss the present and future effects of climate change on public health. Dan Kammen will examine the current state of California and global decarbonization efforts, and why removing fossil fuel use is a pro-business and pro-health endeavor. Two 45 minute presentations and a 45 minute question and answer session with the audience.

MAPS programs are made possible by generous contributions from ASMJC, the MJC Foundation and the MJC STEM program.

More information on each presentation will be posted soon at http://maps.events.mjc.edu.
