Biomedical Research Integrity (BRI) | Adventures in Editing: Eye-Opening Behavior and Misbehavior in the World of Scientific Publishing

Speaker: Barry Stoddard, PhD Director, NCI Interdisciplinary Training Program in Cancer, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Professor, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Senior Editor, Nucleic Acids Research Dr. Barry Stoddard is an expert in protein structure and engineering. He uses cutting-edge laboratory and computational techniques to reveal proteins’ 3D forms at the atomic level, which is key to his ultimate goal: modifying natural proteins to treat or cure human diseases. In particular, his group has made major contributions to the understanding of gene-targeting proteins, from determining their structure to creating variants for use in gene therapy.

This is the primary class of the series Master Pruner courses. It covers basic pruning of ornamental trees and shrubs as well as creative solutions to the overgrown or over-planted garden. The types of pruning cuts are shown and discussed. The concept of the 'pruning budget' is introduced. Plants are divided into three categories according to their natural habits and pruning techniques given for each. Before and after slides of pruning and diagrams will be used to illustrate pruning for size reduction and pruning for definition (thinning). And students will gain insight into the process of yard renovation, where pruning is but one tool in restoring a garden. This lecture series is designed for those who work in landscape maintenance. Each lecture provides information on tools and techniques for quality pruning with better long-term results and customer satisfaction. Classes held in partnership with PlantAmnesty. Cost: $35/class.

CANCELED - Friends of Seattle's Olmsted Parks Tour of University of Washington Campus

Relocated from downtown northward to larger, less-developed acreage in 1895, the University of Washington consisted of just six buildings when the Olmsted Brothers firm prepared a general campus plan in 1903. John Charles Olmsted returned in 1906 to design the grounds for the 1909 Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition (AYPE), which attracted over three million people to Seattle (population 240,000) that year. Olmsted incorporated the campus into the overall city park system and encouraged the university’s regents to reserve part of the campus for public park uses. Today it is an important element of the city’s open space infrastructure. Distance covered: Approximately 2.5 miles. Meet at the main entry to Gerberding Hall. This tour offered in partnership with Friends of Seattle's Olmsted Parks. Cost: $15 Register online or by phone (206-685-8033). Campus location: Gerberding Hall (GRB).

CANCELED - Forest Bathing Walk

Join UW Botanic Gardens and Cascadia Forest Therapy for a unique forest bathing opportunity in the Washington Park Arboretum. Forest bathing (or shinrin-yoku) has been popular in Japan for decades and is gaining momentum in the US. The practice encourages you to walk in the forest at a slower pace and take in the atmosphere around you. Multiple scientific studies have shown that it lowers stress and blood pressure levels, while increasing immune system functioning, making you more resilient to diseases and illness. These walks are slow-paced and generally cover less than a mile of trail. During this time the guide, in partnership with the forest, will offer an evolving series of invitations crafted to help participants slow down and open their senses. The opening of one’s senses encourages mindfulness, which readies the heart and mind to be fully present in the natural world. Come discover the medicine of being in the forest.

NEW DATE: Climate Change Impacts on PNW Trees Symposium

Rescheduled from April 15, 2020. Climate change introduces a new challenge for municipalities as it has the potential to affect areas of forest cover in ways we may not yet completely understand. The recent lack of cold winters, attributed to climate change, has allowed for the mountain pine beetle to wipe out enormous areas of forest land in Canada and the United States. Prolonged drought in California lead to thousands of acres of dead and dying trees in urban and rural areas. Dead and dying trees lead to increased chance of forest fires. Those who will benefit from attending this symposium include arborists in the municipal and private sectors, other professionals who work with trees and forests, as well as anyone interested in how climate change is impacting trees. Presenters will propose best practices for future tree selection, maintenance and management in light of climate changes. The goal for the symposium is to lay out a foundation of ideas and experiences, and use those to develop long term acti… Contact Information: info@pnwisa.org.
