Sabin grew up surrounded by creativity. His mother is a writer, his father an illustrator, and his older sister is a sculptor. His house was always filled with the sounds of all kinds of music— from Bach to R.
The singer-songwriter has performed his blend of rock, jazz and folk music in coffeehouses in New York, in venues across New England, in Ireland during his semester abroad, as well as at Wheaton. He said building his own guitar and making the film provided him with invaluable lessons: I learned that much of the process of creating a film has a lot to do with networking and socializing, as well as finding smart and reliable people to work with.
I loved making this documentary, and I would be extremely happy to continue working in this field. Listen to his music at www. Evans and colleagues sampled geothermal springs in Nepal and found that they produce large amounts of carbon dioxide CO2. Traditionally, it has been thought that the formation of mountains reduces atmospheric carbon dioxide, through a series of chemical reactions in which CO2 from the atmosphere combines with water to form a weak acid, which then breaks down minerals within these mountain belts, said Evans.
However, his research of hot springs flowing on the southern flank of the Himalayan mountain range offers a different possibility. Nicki Pardo The effort to constrain the link between global climate and determine how much of global warming has to do with natural geological processes will be furthered over the next couple of years by Assistant Professor of Chemistry and Geology Matthew Evans.
Evans plans to take at least one Wheaton College student with him to the Himalayas to help with research, which will be a collaborative effort between Wheaton and Cornell University.
Undergraduate and graduate students from both schools also will do extensive laboratory work. So this finding represents a significant shift in the current paradigm, and has impacts on our understanding of the relationship between tectonics, climate and the carbon cycle. Since the Industrial Revolution, concentrations of CO2 in the atmosphere have greatly increased, largely due to human activities, according to the U.
Scientists, as well as policy makers, have been keenly interested in the longterm impact on life on Earth. Much of the funding will go to support fieldwork in central and western Nepal, and in northwestern India, a new area for him. The students that he will take to the Himalayas will help with sampling. The funding also should support at least two student research projects or senior theses, he said.
A summer salary for students to help perform chemical analyses, and collect and synthesize the chemical data is also available. She grew up in a household in which both parents worked for environmentally focused nonprofits. But it was her junior year of high school in Baltimore, Md.

The fellowship comes at a turning point in her academic career when she needs to begin gaining research experience to complement her classroom learning. I look forward to seeing her develop as a scientist over the next two years and beyond. Her stellar academic performance in science and math, combined with her broad interest in environmental science, made her an ideal candidate, he said. The process began late in the fall semester, just as she was preparing for finals. I am so grateful for the support I received from faculty and staff at Wheaton.
I also see it as a key tool to understanding and solving environmental problems. I can see the applications to the environment in all of the math classes I have taken, whether it is setting up matrices using linear algebra or using statistics. She said she is eager to give back to the academic community by presenting her research at Wheaton College events.
The results of my internship will open up the environmental science field to a whole new group of students. And yet it hardly gets any attention.
This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Casavant organ and the perfect time to show a little love toward a noteworthy member of the Wheaton community. Electricity is used only to power the blower and to turn the stops on and off. So, what does MacPherson enjoy most about the organ? It is just another way for all of us to stay connected.

It will be featured in a gallery that highlights many aspects of excavations that took place at Seleucia-on-the-Tigris between and Seleucia was a Hellenistic capital in what is now modern-day Iraq. So this is an opportunity for people to see what we have in the collection. And it is a beautiful little piece and in good physical condition, which is unusual to find. While the University of Michigan retained a large portion of finds from Seleucia, the Toledo Museum of Art and the Cleveland Museum of Art each received small allocations reflecting their financial assistance to the expedition.
A selection of some of the most remarkable and unique finds remained in Baghdad. The exhibition, which opened November 1, brings together the best of the collections in the United States.
She had previously worked at the University of Michigan and published Figurines from Seleucia on the Tigris ina copy of which is in the Wheaton archives. Kelsey Museum officials had been keenly interested in getting the Seleucia head to figure out whether it matched a torso in the collection at the Toledo Museum of Art. Alas, it does not. Yet it is still fascinating. A beautiful antiquity such as the Wheaton head would normally be viewed only as an isolated object of art on a pedestal in a museum gallery.
In the Kelsey Museum display it will, however, be placed within a visual context of an amazing array of things found within the brickwork of Seleucia.
Knowledge and Cultural Citizenship on the Internet. We see that you have a Facebook page. Do you also use Twitter?
I use Facebook more than Twitter. Whatever the reason, I tend to stay connected with people through e-mail, Facebook and text messaging. Why did you propose this FYS topic? Probably the foremost reason is the fact that college students today have grown up in a world that bears scant resemblance to the one in which I did. Students today can probably access more information in an afternoon than I could have working around the clock for a whole semester.
What really interests me, though, is what they do with that information once they have it. Is there such a thing as too much information? So how does it impact us as a society? People have always embraced new communication technology in their own way and at their own pace. In the early twentieth century, some people embraced the arrival of the telephone, while others continued to communicate either in person, by letter or by 12 Wheaton Quarterly telegram.
Like the telephone, when the major mass media of the last century—motion pictures, broadcast radio and television— emerged, they were quickly integrated into everyday life, and though there have always been those who prefer a good book to a movie, these media radically transformed the dimensions of both public and private life.
The Internet and other new media present us with an incredible opportunity that we ignore at our own peril: Will we choose to be active, critically engaged and reflective participants in the production of our cultural, social and political lives, or will we be content with passively consuming what others decide to make available to us?
In part this derives from the language of specific sites. Is that a good thing? We need to make sure we always have time to know and like and love, walk and talk and take naps with, laugh and cry and break bread with real people, not just their avatars. When you talk about cultural citizenship in FYS, what do you mean? In its broadest sense, the term usually speaks to the fact that traditional forms of citizenship have devalued racial and ethnic along with socioeconomic, sexual and religious difference.
That Winter, the Wind Blows - Wikipedia
What it means to be a citizen, to belong, has historically been defined by those in the center, which in turn has meant those on the social and political margins must accept and assimilate to those definitions if they want to claim the rights of citizenship. In our FYS, we start with this and move into the question of how it pertains to everyday cultural practice. New social media and communications technology allow for an increasingly participatory culture.
At the same time, changes in the global economy and geo-politics have ac- celerated the interconnectedness of national markets, cultures and interests. In our FYS, then, cultural citizenship helps us understand two important shifts in how we have formerly approached culture and citizenship. In the first instance, it recognizes that as new media such as the Internet begin to define how we experience culture, we should no longer think of individuals as mere consumers of culture, but rather as active producers.
Like members of a traditional community who share a role in civic life, so too are we citizens of a culture, and like all forms of citizenship, this type confirms both rights and responsibilities upon its members. This leads us into muddier waters, and into the second major reconceptualization put forth by many scholars who write about cultural citizenship. Namely, in some important ways, the traditional model of understanding citizenship as deriving from national origin, allegiance or residence is on a collision course with a model of understanding citizenship as belonging to a new cultural paradigm.
Where is all of this ultimately headed? What we do know is that there are tremen- dous opportunities and obstacles alike on the road. This means fighting the ongoing efforts of telecoms, cable companies and entertainment corporations to further commercialize bandwidth, regulate what can be said and read, and stifle the free exchange of ideas.
At the same time, we should work to find a balance between freedom and accountability, individual privacy and public security, open source and intellectual property, and so on.

Tunnels to front door of a house covered by snow in the Peak District, Derbyshirein In terms of obeying the restrictions on the use of power it is clear that not everyone played the game.
Nevertheless, in the weeks beginning February 10 and February 17, there were rates of saving of 29 per cent and 28 per cent, ie by comparison with the level of coal consumption immediately before the cuts. For one child, this winter the big freeze was a mixed blessing, for another it was an unmitigated disaster. For the future Rolling Stone Bill Wyman, growing up in Penge, South London, the atrocious weather meant that his bricklayer father was laid off work and no money came in.
It was freezing, really nasty, with ice on the inside of the windows. The restrictions on domestic use of electricity, however, remained in force until the end of April; though the clear evidence was of a rising trend from late February in covert consumption, suggestive of a general unwillingness to continue making peacetime sacrifices. Eventually, the weather did turn. But widespread floods, caused by heavy rain accompanying the thaw, affected as many as 31 counties south of the River Ouse, destroying 70, acres of wheat and 80, tons of potatoes.
It was the final supply-shortening, queue-lengthening twist to an unforgettable winter. Famous British Winters Written by D. But January and February where surpassed numerous times, in regards to temperatures, some years being much colder. In facthad 2 months of mean temperatures below 0c in the Midlands and Southern England, the only other known instances of this happening coming in Decemberand January Winter Courtesy O. Bullock One such winter was From January 22nd to March 17th, snow fell every day, somewhere in the UK!
The snow accumulated quickly, causing real problems. The temperatures rarely rose more than a degree or 2 above 0! Several of these snowfalls where of 60cm or more, and depths of level snow amazingly reached 1. Across the UK drifts of more than 5 metres in depth blocked roads, and affected traffic. The armed services were brought in, to drop supplies to people in danger, trapped in their homes due to blocked roads and railways.
The strangest thing aboutwas the first part of the winter was very mild, with only 2 failed cold spells…The weather in fact, turned unseasonably mild for a time.
An area of High Pressure transferred north, from France, on January 18th. Two days later, the anticyclone was centred over North -West Norway. The first frost came on the 20th, and the first snowfall on the 23rd, where heavy snow was recorded in the South West of England, even the Scilly Isles.

Many villages became cut off and isolated. Bullock The cold and snowy weather continued. Any breaks lasted very little time, before the next onslaught.
Here are some observations from the Met-Office taken at the time: On no day in February did the temperature at Kew Observatory top 4. The mean maximum temperature for the month was 0. Mean minimum temperatures were more than 4C below average everywhere in the south and south-west of England, and almost 6C below average in some places. Februarywas the coldest February on record in many parts of the UK, and has been compared with January for its persistent snowfalls, combined with low temperatures.
An interesting observation of the UK in the winter ofshows the lack of Sun in Southern parts, and the huge amount in Western Scotland, which was unusually sunny. When the skies did clear though, things became decidedly nippy! A minimum of c was recorded in Woburn Bedfordshireearly on the 25th of February.
Without the cloud, the month would have been much colder, more particularly at night. March was also bad, with gales and heavy snow early on. In the Scottish Highlands, drifts of 7 metres where reported. Meanwhile, in the SouthWest, much milder air, above freezing, pushed NorthEast, bringing a thaw and heavy rain.
The frozen ground just prevented melt water from sinking into it, and so it lay on the surface, causing chaos. Deepening depressions forced in off the Atlantic, with gusts of wind up to 90 knots reported in Southern England.
