ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENTS AND OPPORTUNITIES

1.      ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Careers for those who want to help others and change the world (NEW POSTING, TODAY):
If you are in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, attend CLAS Workshops to explore your career options and get resources to help you in your search for a career you can be passionate about. This series of workshops will help you to "think outside the box" about what careers or majors you are interested in. As the workshop titles suggest, they are based on things you are passionate about rather than your major.

The next workshop is: Careers for those who want to help others and change the world. It is taking place on Tuesday, September 15 from 12:50-1:40pm in the Career Resource Center classroom, Reitz Union.

For a listing of future workshops from the CRC, visit http://www.crc.ufl.edu/students/workshops.aspx

Anyone (not just math majors) with an interest in mathematics is invited. There will be free pizza, and Professor Douglas Cenzer will be giving a talk titled "Algorithmic Randomness". Here is a blip of the abstract,

"The notion of a "random" sequence is commonplace. The IPOD shuffle supposedly plays your favorite tunes in a random way. The daily movement upward and downward of the stock market is random. But what does this mean? The challenge of algorithmic randomness is to formulate a notion of randomness for a finite or an infinite sequence of symbols taken from a finite alphabet (such as {0,1}). "

This past summer, two UF students traveled around Europe together for two months, staying for free in people's homes and making friends everywhere they went. They observed local ways of life, discovered long-lost relatives, and even found romance.

They did it all with Esperanto, a neutral language created for international communication. Esperanto is unique in human history because it originated from one person to become a living language, currently spoken by hundreds of thousands, if not millions, worldwide.

At The Esperanto Club's first event of the year, Jordon Kalilich and Andy Rosenbaum will introduce the language and talk about how they used it this summer to break down borders.
