Gifts & Grants

NSF Funds New Mass Spectrometer... The Chemistry and Geology departments have jointly obtained an inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (ICP-MS) through a National Science Foundation Major Research Instrumentation grant. Jeff Jeremiason (chemistry & environmental studies) was the principal investigator for the grant, and Dwight Stoll (chemistry), Julie Bartley (geology), and Laura Triplett (geology) were the co-PIs. The total amount of the grant was about $250 K, with about $170 K for instrument purchase and the rest for instrument operation and maintenance and to hire two students each summer to use the instrument. The NSF grant program is for research instrumentation and thus the major focus of the grant is on creating new research opportunities for students, but it will also be used in multiple classes in geology and chemistry. (Note: No MIAC school or private liberal arts school in the area has an instrument like this one.) The new instrument will allow users to analyze about 75 elements on the periodic table (mostly metals) in water, sediment, soil, rocks, etc. Toxic metals like mercury, lead, and cadmium are of interest, as are major elements such as calcium, potassium, and aluminum. Uranium and rare earth elements can also be measured.

President's Cabinet Summary

A number of topics were discussed at the Oct. 14 President’s Cabinet meeting:

  • A proposed e-mail to the campus community regarding the two projects discussed at the recent Board meeting—namely, the new academic building, including the west mall and the renovation of the Anderson Social Science building, and the wind turbine—was reviewed. The administration has now been asked by the Board to move forward with plans for financing and fundraising for the building and to seek a variance from Nicollet County to erect a wind turbine.
  • An update of the H1N1 pandemic was given. Additional staff hours in the satellite clinic are needed to accommodate all the cases. The number of new cases on a daily basis has remained steady with an average of 12 students reporting ILI and 15 students seen daily in the satellite clinic.

Oshima-Ryan to Perform 'Goldberg Variations'... On Sunday, Oct. 18, at 3:30 p.m. in Jussi Björling Recital Hall. pianist Yumiko Oshima-Ryan (music) will perform Johann Sebastian Bach's An Aria with Thirty Variations, popularly known as "The Goldberg Variations." First published in 1741, the "Goldberg Variations" were originally composed for harpsichord with two manuals. This presents a number of difficulties for the pianist as she performs the work on the one manual of the modern piano. According to Oshima-Ryan, "This composition has an amazing power of healing the human soul that comes through the compassionate warmth, faith, and most of all, strong hope and love expressed in Bach's music." More than 250 years later, we can "still feel the joy of Bach's great art and his energy in our modern world of sleeplessness and suffering." Sunday's performance is free and open to the public and will be followed by a reception for the pianist in the recital hall lobby.

This display is located just outside of the archives' office on the library's third floor. The archivists will also be offering behind-the-scenes tours of the archives storage and work areas. These two sessions will occur on Oct. 20 at 10:30 a.m. and again on Oct. 26 at 2:30 p.m. If you have any questions, please contact Jeff Jenson in the College and Lutheran Church Archives.

Mark Your Calendars Now... The Fall 2009 Raoul Wallenberg Memorial Lecture will be held on Monday, Nov. 2, at 7 p.m. in Wallenberg Auditorium, Nobel Hall of Science. Steven H. Miles, M.D., of the University of Minnesota Medical School, will speak on "Oath Betrayed: America's Torture Doctors." Dr. Miles became an international figure when he spoke up about the complicity of medical professionals in the torture of prisoners at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. What surprised him most was that the doctors and nurses did not speak up about the abuse, but rather were co-opted into the process and became active participants. Miles will speak about his extensive investigation into America's use of torture and the violations of the medical profession's oath to do no harm. Miles is a professor of medicine and bioethics and also an affiliate faculty for the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at the university. He has published four books and numerous articles on medical ethics, human rights, tropical medicine, and end of life and geriatric health care. His lecture is sponsored by Peace Studies and is free and open to the public.

Off-Campus Events of Interest

Support Your Local Playwright... The Arts Center of Saint Peter (315 S. Minnesota—use the back entrance) is offering a staged reading of The National Endowment, a new play by Doug Huff (philosophy), on Friday, Oct. 16, and Saturday, Oct. 17, at 7 p.m. each night. The National Endowment is a two-act comedy/farce set at a small liberal arts college, St. Ansgar, in the Midwest. The entire play is a memory of the current college president, who begins and ends the play in a prologue and an epilogue. The college is on the verge of bankruptcy and the then president has misappropriated a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to stay open. The president, a rather outrageous man, has coerced two junior faculty members to help him cover up the misappropriation of funds from an NEH committee, who make a site visit to evaluate the program they have funded, but which has not be implemented at the college. The president’s scam must also be kept secret from the faculty at large. Complications are piled upon complications until chaos reigns. The cast includes many people from the Gustavus and St. Peter community, but Doug assures us, on advice from his attorney, that any resemblance to actual events or people, living or dead, is purely coincidental. NOTE: The play contains adult situations. Parking is available in the rear and in nearby city lots. Tickets are $5 for AC members and $7 for adults. Student tickets are $3, but students will be admitted free on Friday night. Beverages will be available for purchase through Patrick’s.
