LIR Event “Hibernation in Humans? What Hibernators Can Teach Us About Our Health”
Sage Hall 1216
Join Biology Professor Courtney Kurtz as she presents. Hibernation is an extreme adaptation to the cold temperatures and low food availability of winter. Many mammals hibernate, although humans are not among them. Recent research into hibernation has shown us, however, that the biology of hibernation can provide many insights into the development and/or treatment of several diseases including obesity, type 2 diabetes, muscle disuse atrophy and inflammatory bowel diseases. In the course, we will examine the unique biology of hibernation and how the study of hibernation can teach us something about these diseases.

A product of a one night stand, abused in foster home after foster home, and raised sleeping in parks were just a few of the daunting obstacles in Monti’s journey from the streets to the stage. This is an interactive presentation, designed to help students gain the problem-solving skills needed to be successful, both inside and outside of the classroom.

“Presidential and Electoral Politics” film sub-series: Being There (1979)
Sage Hall 1234
In a time of profound self doubt and malaise, the American public, mass media and president fall under the spell of a simple-minded gardener, a man whose observations about the growing seasons pass for profound allegories forecasting the country’s economic future.
Is it possible that such a simpleton could become president of the United States? If he can serve the interests of the rich and powerful and play (unwittingly) to the anxieties of the American people, why not? “Life is a state of mind.”
The brilliant comedic actor Peter Sellers stars in the award-winning 1979 film Being There, the third of four films featured in the History/Political Science “Presidential and Electoral Politics” film sub-series.
