SSS Students Visit the "BioDigester"

Did you know that UW Oshkosh has a BioDigester?

The Biodigester uses bacteria to decompose food scraps, yard waste and manure. It then turns this energy into methane gas. This methane gas is converted to electricity and powers 8% of the energy use on campus which is equivalent to the energy consumption of over 200 family homes per year. Now we are very inspired to practice more sustainability in our own lives!

Feminist* Film Series: Mansome

6-8pm, Reeve Union Theater

From America’s greatest beardsman, to Morgan Spurlock’s own mustache, Executive Producers Will Arnett, Jason Bateman and Ben Silverman bring us a hilarious look at men’s identity in the 21st century. Models, actors, experts and comedians weigh in on what it is to be a man in a world where the definition of masculinity has become as diverse as a hipster’s facial hair in Williamsburg. The hilarious follicles of men’s idiosyncratic grooming habits are thoroughly combed over as men finally take.

Dancing with Mathematics: Karl Schaffer

Wednesday, 7:30-8:30 PM, Halsey 268

Mathematics and dance are linked in many beautiful and surprising ways: the geometry of the moving body, the symmetries of dancers arrayed across the stage, the rhythmic patterns of dance phrasing, the complex connections between dancers, the varied paths through space. In this talk we will examine some of the ways that choreographers employ mathematical concepts, both consciously and unconsciously, and see how mathematical questions sometimes arise within a dance.

Karl Schaffer is co-founder and co-artistic director of the Dr. Schaffer and Mr. Stern Dance Ensemble, which has toured throughout North America and internationally. They have received five National Endowment for the Arts grants for their artistic and educational work linking dance and mathematics. His most recent concert, The Daughters of Hypatia celebrates the lives, work, and struggles of great women mathematicians. He teaches mathematics at De Anza College in California when not dancing.
