This is the last call to participate in 2019 Earth Day. This year we will focus on the different ways in which engaging with the planet through the lens of equity and inclusion. While traditionally Earth Day at the University of Washington has been an environmental-centric festival, this year we are expanding the conversation to include the economic, social, and political aspects that we believe are crucial to any discussion of sustainability. Which is why our theme this year is Engage for Earth!
We are reaching out to invite all UW-members (as well as programs, schools, departments, and student groups) to actively participate in this year’s Earth Day events! We greatly appreciate your consideration of participating by having an information table or preparing a special presentation/event. We are expecting lots of foot traffic so it would be an excellent way to gain exposure.
Our programming will include speakers, exhibitors, performances, installations, workshops, classes, film screenings, panels, and more to both engage and empower students and local community members to get involved in their communities. There’s a lot of room for groups to get creative and participate in a way that really enhances this dialogue and gives all a chance to showcase what they do and what they’re passionate about, beyond the more classic tabling model.
Participation for UW members is free, but if you have the capacity to make any donation support to create more equitable opportunities for student participation in this event.
In addition to Earth Day, we will also be facilitating several related events in the week leading up to the April 22nd festivities. All UW departments and groups are encouraged to create their own event during the month of April focusing on diversity, environmental or social justice, or sustainability as part of Earth Week. To have your event included on the UW’s Earth Week event calendar, email sustainability.
Please help us by sharing this information with other students and groups.
For those interested in participating, please contact the student coordinator, Sarah Culp, at sfculp. We look forward to learning how you engage!
Save the date!
UW 2019 Earth Day celebrations
April 22, 2019 | HUB Lawn and Lyceum
Devin Johnson (Ph.D. Statistician NOAA Fisheries Marine Mammal Lab) will be presenting today (4/1/19) from 3-4pm in the Physics and Astronomy Tower, Room C520.
Title: Estimating resource selection from telemetry data: A case study on northern fur seals
After a brief tour of northern fur seal ecology and traditional resource selection models for telemetry data, we will examine a new approach based on modeling animal movements in a pixelated landscape. These discrete-space continuous time models allow inclusion of spatial habitat information in a way that does not depend on the rate of location acquisition. Therefore as telemetry devices improve, and locations are measured at finer time scales, the inference remains comparable. These models also allow spatial and temporal habitat covariates and temporally changing responses by the animal. One of the major benefits of the model is that the likelihood can be approximated with a Poisson likelihood, therefore, any GLM software can be used to fit the model, such as glm(…) or gam(…) in the R statistical environment. The methodology is demonstrated by analyzing the movements of 15 northern fur seal pups on their first migration with respect to surface winds, geostrophic currents, and sea surface temperature.
Devin Johnson has been a statistician at the NOAA Alaska Fisheries Science Center’s Marine Mammal Laboratory since 2005 where he conducts research on statistical problems in ecology focused on animal movement, capture-recapture models, and Bayesian nonparametric methods. Devin completed his masters and PhD in statistics at Colorado State University and has worked as an assistant professor at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, where he completed his undergraduate degree.

Considering the ultrasound industry around Seattle, and the large number of students that have been getting industry jobs upon graduation, this would be the course to truly prepare them for such a career. There are no prerequisites.
If you know students who would work best at a company where they get to wear hats for multiple roles within the organization, then beginning their career at a startup company could be a perfect fit. The Buerk Center is proud to announce the upcoming UW Startup Job Fair!

SPRING 2019: America and East Asia in a Globalized World: Globalization, Nationalism, and Regionalism
America and East Asia in a Globalized World: Globalization, Nationalism, and Regionalism
JSIS 484 B /JSIS 584 A
Th 230-520 MGH 097
Professor Donald C. Hellmann
East Asia led by the continuing growth of China, will soon become the largest economic region in the world and, in due course, the Asian Century may succeed the American Century. Whatever the ultimate result, global affairs in the first half of the 21st century will focus on the challenges of evaluating Asian regionalism, integrating Asia into the world and the capacity and will of the United States to lead. The global political economy will be rapidly transformed by: 1) the digital revolution; 2) a dramatic shift in economic power; 3) new multilateral international institutions to mediate these changes; 4) new types of security threats, military cyber and economic; 5) a challenge to the U.S. and the universality of the democratic capitalist principles; and 6) developing a viable regional order with a hegemonic China; 7) erratic Trumpian nationalism.
The course discusses the historical forces that have given rise to these ideas globally and especially in East Asia and frames the questions facing this region in the increasingly inter-dependent but non-convergent 21st century world.
Graduate students will take a five to six page take home final and write a 12-15 page paper on a topic of their special interest, established in consultation with the professor.
Undergraduate grades will be primarily based on a take home final examination and two five-page papers on topics worked out with the professor. All students are expected to do the readings and participate in classroom discussions on the readings of the week elaborated by 30 minute lectures by the professor.
This course is open to all students.
