Category : Lectures/Conferences/Symposia
Directed and controllable manipulation of fluid-borne entities is important for a wide range of applications such as cellular diagnostics and nano-scale assembly. We present a multiplexed mechanism for manipulating microscopic magnetic particles in fluid on arrays of patterned magnetic disks or wires. This mechanism allows for probing and manipulation of micro- and nano-scale objects and biological entities in near-native environments, offers the flexibility to apply forces to large numbers of objects simultaneously, and is remotely tunable by application of weak magnetic fields. We illustrate several applications of this technique such as re ...

15 January 2015, Thursday   [6:00pm - 7:30pm]    Communities in Conversation: Scott Samuelson, Suffering and Soul-Making: On the Deep Value of the Liberal Arts
Category : Lectures/Conferences/Symposia
Samuelson will explore two general visions of suffering: the “Promethean” attitude, which holds that we’d be better off if we could minimize suffering; and the “Orphic” attitude, which holds that finding ways of coming to terms with suffering is a crucial part of how we form our identities. Drawing on his book, The Deepest Human Life, he will discuss how the study of the liberal arts helps us not only with suffering, but in what John Keats called “soul-making.” www.facebook.com/communities.in.conversation ...
