1.      ANNOUNCEMENT: Starcraft Experts Needed (NEW POSTING):
Nate Poling and Melissa Johnson are currently working on an 8-week online course that focuses on 21st century skill development using the real time strategy game Starcraft. Such skills include critical thinking, decision making, and resource management. We have just finished developing and placing all the course content into the online learning environment. However at this stage, we are in need of at least a couple of Starcraft experts to review and assess our course content.

Specifically, we are looking for individuals who have extensive experience playing the game (Starcraft and the Brood War expansion) and who have deep knowledge about its concepts and strategies. As a reviewer, you will be asked to individually spend 2-3 hours reviewing the course content and evaluating it using certain criteria we will provide you. We will then set up a face to face group meeting to discuss your evaluations and collect any feedback or suggestions you might have. The purpose of the course assessment and evaluation is to ensure that we have not omitted any important information.

Gaming in education and training is an exciting cutting-edge field. Experience in course evaluation and assessment would be an excellent addition to your CV or resume. If you are interested, please e-mail Nate at [log in to unmask] Please also mention your Starcraft and real time strategy game experience.

7.      ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENT: Sam Proctor Florida History Lecture:
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.

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.

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 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.

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..."
