4.      ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Sam Proctor Florida History Lecture (NEW POSTING):
The first Sam Proctor Florida History Lecture will take place Wednesday, September 23 at 7:00pm in Pugh Hall, Ocora.

Steven Noll, Senior Lecturer, UF Department of History, and David Tegeder, Professor of History, Santa Fe College will be discussing their forthcoming book Ditch of Dreams: The Cross Florida Barge Canal and the Struggle for Florida's Future. For centuries, men dreamed of cutting a canal across the Florida peninsula. Intended to reduce shipping times, it was championed in the early twentieth century as a way to make the mostly rural state a center of commerce and trade.

Rejected by the Army Corps of Engineers as "not worthy," the project received continued support from Florida legislators. Federal funding was eventually allocated and work began in the 1930s, but the canal quickly became a lightning rod for controversy.

Steven Noll and David Tegeder trace the twists and turns of the project through the years, drawing on a wealth of archival and primary resources. Far from being a simplistic morality tale of good environmentalists versus evil canal developers, they reveal that the story of the Cross-Florida Barge Canal is a complex one of competing interests amid the changing political landscape of modern Florida.

(HRD) a group devoted to addressing and solving many of the faults of our current healthcare system and the nation's leader in Diagnosimetrics(r) and Illness Specific Diagnostic Systems(r) is seeking research assistants to provide interpretation and input of data that has been abstracted from the patient records from a key hospital and luminary partner. The data will be used to develop Illness Specific Diagnostic Tables (ISD). ISD technology will allow for new methods and processes aimed at reducing diagnostic testing, a leading contributor to escalating costs in the delivery of health care services.

Due to the volume of abstracted data, HRD has immediate research positions for up to 40 assistants.

Assistants will be required to review the data abstraction sheets and transfer the pertinent data into appropriately configured computer spread sheets. The spread sheets may be downloaded onto the assistants personal computers with the results transferred to a memory stick provided. No travel required.

Perspectives on Science and Worldview is taking place on Monday evenings from September 21 - October 12 at 7:30pm at the Christian Study Center, 112 NW 16th Street, just one block north of University Avenue.

This four-week class examines the role that science plays in shaping our worldview. What is the job of science when we try to answer the most basic questions about how to understand ourselves as human and about the fundamental nature of reality?

While the class will focus primarily on the role of science in our worldview and not on the origins of life, we will not ignore the fact that for the past 150 years it has been Darwinian evolution by natural selection that has made these questions so challenging and significant. We seek to offer a range of views with regard to science and worldview that will serve those who are genuinely trying to answer hard questions about the nature of human existence and about the role of science in addressing these questions.

Monday, September 21: "Science, Religion, and Worldview" Fred Gregory, Professor of the History of Science, UF.

Monday, September 28:  "Can Science and Theology Make Peace in the Age of Darwin?" Brent Henderson, Assistant Professor, Linguistics, UF.

Monday, October 5:  "Thinking About Science From an Astronomer's Perspective" Ata Sarajedini, Professor of Astronomy, UF.

Monday, October 12:  "Does Science Point to God?" Richard Buggs, Post doctorate, Evolutionary Genetics, UF.

Snacks, sodas, and coffee will be provided. Everyone is welcome.

The meeting is taking place on Tuesday, September 22 at 6:30pm in the Philosophy Library on the 3rd floor of Griffin-Floyd Hall.

18.     STUDENT ORGANIZATION ANNOUNCEMENT: Pre-Dental Society (NEW POSTING):
The Pre-Dental Society is a service organization whose primary goal is to educate the Gainesville community as well as other UF students on oral health and hygiene. We hold four, 45 minute meetings throughout the semester where we usually show a video of a dental procedure, invite guest speakers to talk, and hold small group meetings with members of our executive board where we discuss various aspects of the application process, dental anatomy, and various other topics.

What sets us apart from other pre-dental organizations is our size.  It's a much more personable and friendly atmosphere which makes it easier to network and to learn the ins and outs of the entire dental school application process.  Each executive member is an expert on a different aspect of the pre-dental application such as interviews, personal statements, community service, and letters of recommendation.  We are here to help you.

With that being said, our first meeting will be Tuesday, September 22 at 7:30pm in the Computer Science Building, CSE, room E119. We've got a lot to discuss such as socials and community service projects for this semester.

19.     STUDENT ORGANIZATION ANNOUNCEMENT: Pi Mu Epsilon - Undergraduate Math Club (NEW POSTING):
PME will have a meeting this Wednesday, September 23 at 5:15pm in Little 339 (the Atrium). There will be free pizza/drinks, and Professor John R. Klauder will be giving a talk titled "Central Limit Theorem and Its Avoidance: Application to Selected Functional Integrals". Here is some of the abstract, "The evaluation of functional integrals (basically integrals with infinitely many variables) has significant potential applications. A select class of such integrals will be considered that are motivated by problems in quantum theory. A direct evaluation of these integrals is controlled by the Central Limit Theorem (CLT), which, although mathematically correct, leads to physically unacceptable results. Fortunately, ambiguities in the quantization process itself suggest alternative functional integral expressions that avoid the CLT, and lead to different and physically acceptable results..."

20.     STUDENT ORGANIZATION ANNOUNCEMENT: Biomedical Engineering Society (NEW POSTING):
BMES (The Biomedical Engineering Society) will be hosting its first meeting of the year.

The meeting will be on Wednesday, September 23 at 6:15pm in CSE E222. CSE is located directly behind the Hub and across from Marston Science Library.
