The virtual William James

first_imgArtist, scientist, physician, Harvard professor, psychologist, psychic investigator, philosopher — William James explored multiple vocations in his life-long quest for intellectual clarity and spiritual fulfillment. A new online exhibition launched by Harvard College Library, “ ‘Life is in the transitions’: William James 1842-1910,” offers viewers the chance to trace James’ search through more than 90 manuscripts, letters, photographs, and drawings.The exhibition marks the 100th anniversary of James’ death, and looks back at the transitional moments of his life and illuminates the “plural facts” of James’ experiences, his public and private battles, and elements of what he called the “mosaic philosophy” of radical empiricism, pragmatism, and pluralism that he strived to clarify for his contemporaries.The majority of the exhibition is drawn from the vast James family papers at Houghton Library. Additional items were loaned from Countway Library, Harvard Medical School; Harvard University Archives; and the Ernst Mayr Library, Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard. Highlights of the exhibition include James’ sketches of animals and people while a member of Louis Agassiz’s expedition to the Amazon; his lecture notes as a Harvard medical student, with his doodles; his earliest diary; the letter proclaiming his love for his future wife; an exchange of letters with his brother, novelist Henry James, in which they critique each others’ work; drafts for “The Varieties of Religious Experience,” “The Moral Equivalent of War,” “Pragmatism, and Some Problems of Philosophy”; accounts of séances and examples of automatic writing; and a rich selection of photographs of family and friends.The online exhibition is arranged similarly to a physical exhibition — with a series of “cases” that lead viewers through James’ life from a young man until his death. At the same time, viewers are able to jump from case to case and examine items that interest them. Links to the catalog record for every item, as well as links to a finding aid for the James family papers are also included. A physical exhibition of the same name will be on display in the Edison and Newman room of Houghton Library through Dec. 23.last_img read more

Now, ice won’t stick

first_imgA team of researchers from Harvard University has invented a way to keep metal surface free of ice and frost. The treated surfaces quickly shed even tiny, incipient condensation droplets or frost, simply through gravity. The technology prevents ice sheets from developing on surfaces, and ice that is present slides off effortlessly.The discovery, published online as a manuscript in the journal ACS Nano on June 10, has direct implications for a wide range of metal surfaces, such as those used in aircraft, refrigeration systems, wind turbines, marine vessels, and construction.The group, led by Joanna Aizenberg, Amy Smith Berylson Professor of Materials Science at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and a core faculty member at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard, previously introduced the idea that it was possible to create a surface that prevented ice by using coatings inspired by the water-repellent lotus leaf. Yet this technique can fail under high humidity, as surface textures become coated with condensation and frost.“The lack of any practical way to eliminate the intrinsic defects … that contribute to liquid condensation, pinning, freezing, and strong adhesion has raised the question of whether any solid surface,” irrespective of its topography or treatment, “can ever be truly ice-preventive, especially at high-humidity, frost-forming conditions,” Aizenberg said.To combat this problem, the researchers created a radically different technology that is suited for both high humidity and extreme pressure, called Slippery Liquid Infused Porous Surfaces, or SLIPS. SLIPS are designed to expose a defect-free, molecularly flat liquid interface, immobilized by a hidden nanostructured solid. On these ultra-smooth, slippery surfaces, fluids and solids alike — including water drops, condensation, frost, and even ice — slide off easily.The challenge was to apply this technology to metal surfaces, especially since such materials are commonplace in the developed world, from airplane wings to railings. Aizenberg and her team developed a way to coat metal with a rough material to which the lubricant adheres. A coating can be finely sculpted to lock in the lubricant and can be applied over a large area on metal surfaces. In addition, the coating is non-toxic and anti-corrosive.To demonstrate the robustness of the technology, the researchers successfully applied it to refrigerator cooling fins and tested it under a prolonged, deep-freeze condition. Compared with existing “frost-free” cooling systems, their innovation prevented frost far more efficiently and for a longer time.“Unlike lotus leaf-inspired, ice-phobic surfaces, which fail under high humidity conditions, SLIPS-based ice-phobic materials, as our results suggest, can completely prevent ice formation at temperatures slightly below 0 degrees Celsius, while dramatically reducing ice accumulation and adhesion under deep-freezing, frost-forming conditions,” said Aizenberg.The new technology also helps to lower energy costs. This approach to combatting slippery metallic surfaces holds great promise for broad application in the refrigeration and aviation industry and in other high-humidity environments, where ice-phobic surfaces are desirable. For example, once the coating is applied, ice on roofs, wires, outdoor signs, and wind turbines can be easily removed merely by tilting, slight agitation, or even wind and vibrations.“This new approach to ice-phobic materials is a truly disruptive idea that offers a way to make a transformative impact on energy and safety costs associated with ice, and we are actively working with the refrigeration and aviation industries to bring it to market,” said Aizenberg.Aizenberg is also professor of chemistry and chemical biology in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, the Susan S. and Kenneth L. Wallach Professor at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, and director of the Kavli Institute for Bionano Science and Technology at Harvard.Her co-authors included Philseok Kim, a Technology Development Fellow at the Wyss Institute and SEAS; Tak-Sing Wong of the Wyss and SEAS; Jack Alvarenga and Michael J. Kreder of the Wyss; and Wilmer E. Adorno-Martinez of the University of Puerto Rico.The authors received support from the Materials Research Science and Engineering Center at Harvard. Part of this work was performed at the Center for Nanoscale Systems at Harvard, supported by the National Science Foundation. In addition, the team acknowledged the Croucher Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship and the REU BRIDGE, co-funded by the ASSURE program of the Department of Defense, in partnership with the National Science Foundation’s REU site program.last_img read more

Los Angeles coroner announces independent inquiry into police killing of Andrés Guardado

first_imgA decision to criminally charge Vega and possibly Hernandez will be in the hands of new district attorney George Gascón, who has met with relatives of people killed by police and “promised to reopen a number of controversial shooting cases involving law enforcement officers that [outgoing district attorney Jackie] Lacey declined to prosecute,” LA Times continued.Guardado’s family in June filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the county, the sheriff’s department, Vega, and Hernandez, alleging they “not only used unreasonable and excessive force in fatally shooting the young man but were possibly acting in connection and in agreement with members of one or more LASD gangs of which they may be affiliated,” a release said. ”The complaint, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court on behalf of Elisa and Cristobal Guardado, seeks to hold the defendants accountable for violating various civil rights as well as the California Bane Act that resulted in the execution of 18-year-old decedent, Andres Guardado.” The statement from the Los Angeles County coroner’s office said the inquest gives officials power to “subpoena relevant witnesses to testify and documents to present at the inquest,” after which retired Justice Candace Cooper “will make findings related to the cause and manner of death.” Cooper “will then forward her decision and recommendation to the Medical Examiner-Coroner,” the coroner’s office continued.News of the inquest is welcome news for Guardado’s family and advocates, who have slammed the secrecy and lack of transparency from the sheriff’s department following his killing in June. In just one instance, Sheriff Alex Villanueva placed a hold on Guardado’s case, which blocked his autopsy report from release. But in another “unusual move” from the coroner’s office, CNN reported, “Dr. Lucas opted to remove the security hold and make Guardado’s autopsy results public in July.”- Advertisement – Both the independent autopsy performed at the request of Guardado’s family and the coroner’s office autopsy found that the 18-year-old was shot five times in the back by the sheriff’s department. “These findings confirm what we have known all along,” his family said according to LAist, “which is that Andrés was unjustifiably killed by a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy.”That officer, Miguel Vega, has faced previous accusations of misconduct, including “making false statements in an investigation,” the Los Angeles Times previously reported. Further damning information against the sheriff’s department is court testimony from a sheriff’s deputy identifying Vega and Chris Hernandez, the deputy with him when he shot and killed Guardado, as potential recruits for a racist and violent law enforcement gang. When it comes to Villanueva, his “handling of the shooting and attempts to block information from being made public are among a laundry list of criticisms he has faced in recent months,” the Los Angeles Times reports, “leading the county Board of Supervisors to narrowly approve a motion Tuesday to explore options that could lead to his removal from office.”- Advertisement –center_img – Advertisement –last_img read more

Great synergy! PP Kopački rit and Vina Belje presented a joint ticket for visitors

first_imgIt should certainly be noted that such changes should be announced a year in advance, so that travel agencies can put new prices and packages in their offers and calculations. The time of the main tourism fairs has just passed, so the first real opportunity for promotion was missed, but this is a great opportunity in the context of a “pilot project” so that for the second year everything will be arranged and at a high level of performance. On behalf of Vina Belje, Ljiljana Vajda-Mlinaček, Director of Marketing, Tourism and Corporate Communications, emphasized that a joint ticket encourages guests to consume two contents for the price of one and opens the possibility for further cooperation and adaptation to the needs of guests. ” In this special offer, Belje wines offer guests a tour of the old cellar from 1526 in Kneževi Vinogradi with a welcome wine and a souvenir glass that guests will remember. Guests also have the opportunity to visit the eco center free of charge. In accordance with the nature that stretches on the pastures between the pond and Tikveš, which currently has more than 1,100 cattle in the cow-calf system and about 60 Slavonian-Srijem Podolians, an indigenous breed that we seek to preserve through a joint project with PP Kopački rit ” This offer is a continuation of the successful long-term cooperation of the largest protected nature area in eastern Croatia and one of the largest wine producers in Croatia whose vineyards are located on the southern slopes of Banovo brdo in Baranja, near the Kopački rit Nature Park. The new 2-in-1 ticket allows visitors to buy two attractive tourist services that emphasize the tourist specificity of Baranja and is one of the steps to further unify the offer and strengthen Baranja as a desirable tourist destination. Tickets 2in1 can be purchased at the reception center PP Kopački rit and in the old cellar of Vina Belje in Kneževi Vinogradi. For the beginning of the new tourist season in Baranja, Kopački rit and Vina Belje have prepared a new offer for visitors that will allow them to enjoy the beauties of the Nature Park and visit the Belje cellar with wine tasting.center_img Great synergy, which is so lacking in our tourism. One should look at the bigger picture, not individual interests. No one can develop a tourist destination on their own. It’s all about quality content that’s key. If we all work together at the destination and are all ambassadors of the entire destination, then the guest gets the best possible recommendation and information about the content. On the one hand, there is currently no unique quality offer in Slavonia, ie. a place where you can see all the tourist facilities, as well as the good majority of destinations, while on the other hand we have too much information and there is too much noise in communication. That is why cooperation and quality information is crucial. Synergy is key In any case, a great example of synergy, which we must follow and I hope that other tourism participants will be included in the whole story.last_img read more

Brewers pull a starter switcheroo to try to get matchup advantage on Dodgers

first_img“I don’t think through the first five innings you could see anybody throw the ball better,” Counsell said of Woodruff, who struck out eight.In the sixth, though, Turner greeted him with a single. He hit Manny Machado with a pitch. An out later, Muncy poked an opposite-field single to put the Dodgers ahead 2-1.The Dodgers then tacked on another run in the sixth and two more in the seventh, on their way to a victory that sends them to Milwaukee needing to win one of the last two games for a trip back to the World Series.The Brewers, on the other hand, sounded confident that they’ll have the home crowd behind them. They’ll also have Miley to start again in Game 6, with his one-batter cameo in Game 5 little more than a nationally televised bullpen session.This time, it will be for real.Asked how long he expects to pitch in Game 6, Miley said: “Nine innings.”Brewers manager Craig Counsell, left, removes starting pitcher Wade Miley, center, after just five pitches as shortstop Orlando Arcia, right, looks on during the first inning of Game 5 of the NLCS on Wednesday at Dodger Stadium. (Photo by Harry How/Getty Images) Woodruff and Miley and the Brewers staff were just about the only ones who knew what was coming. Even center fielder Lorenzo Cain said he had no idea what was happening when Miley left the game after walking leadoff hitter Cody Bellinger on five pitches in the first inning.“I didn’t expect that to happen,” Cain said. “I saw Miley starting and the next thing I know Woody was in the game. I had no idea. That’s what we’ve been doing. We’re sticking to it. It’s been working so far.”The Brewers have essentially done away with traditional pitching roles, particularly late in the season and into October. With so many talented relievers, and the postseason schedule providing so many off days to allow them to stay relatively fresh, Counsell has had the bullpen door swinging open early and often.Once the roles of “starter” and “reliever” have been blurred, there was no reason not to try to maximize their advantage against the platoon-heavy Dodgers with a little misdirection.Counsell’s plan was to start the left-handed Miley to get the Dodgers to start most of their right-handed hitters. He’d then pull him after one batter, bringing in the right-handed Woodruff, creating a dilemma for Roberts. Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco center_img “They’re trying to get matchups and we’re trying to get matchups,” Counsell said. “They’re a very tough team to get matchups against. ”Roberts, however, had a suspicion that Counsell might be up to something, which is why he still started the left-handed hitting Max Muncy, placing him at second base for the first time in more than a month so he could squeeze his bat into the lineup.It paid dividends because Muncy delivered the go-ahead hit against Woodruff in the sixth inning.That sequence subjected Counsell to second-guessing about leaving a pitcher in too long, ironic for a manager so aggressive about changing pitchers.Woodruff had buzzed through the Dodgers’ lineup for four innings. After an infield hit and an unearned run in the fifth, though, he took the mound in the sixth with 56 pitches.When the inning began, Woodruff was facing Justin Turner … for the third time.As all followers of modern managerial strategy know, many teams aggressively avoid having a pitcher go through the lineup a third time. What’s more, Woodruff had not thrown more than 50 pitches since throwing 58 on Sept. 2.“I felt pretty strong,” Woodruff said. “I’m never going to say I was tired. I didn’t feel that way. A couple pitches maybe just got away from me a little bit, but I felt fine.”Counsell said the bullpen’s workload from Tuesday’s night’s 13-inning game was a factor in sticking with Woodruff, but also that he liked his stuff.Related Articles How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire LOS ANGELES — As Wade Miley warmed up to “start” for the Milwaukee Brewers, Brandon Woodruff was hiding nearby.Woodruff was waiting in a tunnel by the bullpen, staying out of sight of the Dodgers, but prepared to hit the mound just after lineup cards had been exchanged and Miley had finished his warm-ups.The right-hander was a pawn in the managerial chess match between the Brewers’ Craig Counsell the Dodgers’ Dave Roberts, unable to even tell his parents that he was going to be pitching as many innings as he could in Game 5 of the National League Championship Series on Wednesday.“I was told not to inform anybody else,” Woodruff said. “Just keep it to myself.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
