MobileNEWT: Platform for Development and Assessment of Nano-Based Water Treatment Technologies

The MobileNEWT (Nano-Enabled Water Treatment) is a customized, enclosed mobile trailer for easy hauling and deployment. It is built with a large concession side-window for public viewing, interaction, education, and dissemination of knowledge in featuring various Nano-based water treatment technologies. The overall goal of the MobileNEWT is to incorporate the advances in Engineering Nanomaterials (ENMs) and their integration into modular water treatment devices. These devices are then tested under actual field setting to validate these technologies in further driving innovations under the continuous-flow and field conditions toward real-world application and commercialization.

Virtual Tour of Ross-Blakley Hall

Come along for a tour of Ross-Blakley Hall on the ASU Tempe campus, a jewel in the university's architectural crown. Originally constructed as a law library in the early 1990s, the building's midcentury-esque geometry nods to its Southwest environs, combining exuberant form with function. It provides a physical home for the study of the foundational discipline of the humanities, currently housing two of The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences' flagship humanities units: the Department of English and the Institute for Humanities Research. Note: this tour mainly focuses on portions of the building occupied by the Department of English.

Learn from Nature! Soil Liquefaction

Mother Nature is Earth’s greatest design engineer, but she can also pack a destructive wallop. Researchers at the Center for Bio-mediated and Bio-inspired Geotechnics (CBBG) are learning from nature to discover ways to mitigate these destructive effects. Liquefaction, a phenomenon where saturated soil acts and flows like a liquid, is often the major source of property damage due to earthquakes. CBBG engineers are working to understand, and reproduce, ways in which nature cements and creates bubbles in soil to prevent soils from liquefying. Try a hands-on experiment at home to explore ways in which soil particles can be cemented together.

Metropolitan: Conversation with Author and Director Whit Stillman

Arizona State University faculty Devoney Looser and Kevin Sandler moderated this March 31, 2017 conversation with writer-director Whit Stillman after a screening of his 1990 film "Metropolitan." Audiences may be most familiar with Stillman's award-winning, Jane Austen-inspired 2016 film, "Love and Friendship," which starred Kate Beckinsdale as the deliciously awful widow, Lady Susan. Stillman has had a long, fruitful relationship with reimagining Austen for contemporary audiences. He describes himself as a long-time Austenite ("among the most fervent") and had previously revisited Austen material in his Mansfield Park-influenced "Metropolitan."

What is chaos? How is it different from randomness?

Science develops models that help us make sense of the patterns we see in the world. Without those models, the world appears to be random – a product of chance. But as we gain knowledge, we learn that there are patterns, and knowledge of those patterns makes the world seem less random and more deterministic. But what if there were systems that behaved randomly even if you knew everything about how the system works? These are special kinds of complex systems that are said to be chaotic. Here we explore how chaos is the apparent randomness from ordered complex systems.

Catching the Next Wave

This movie is a simulation showing movement of a fluid inside a rectangular cavity. The fluid is heated from above and cooled from below, resulting in a stable temperature stratification. When the cavity is oscillated up-and-down, the fluid experiences an instability which develops into a full-fledged wave-breaking event. The movie illustrates this event over ten oscillation periods, using the temperature to visualize the flow. The simulation was conducted over one month on the ASU Agave supercomputer. Brought to you by postdoctoral scholar Jason Yalim and associate professors Juan Lopez and Bruno Welfert.

Laura Tohe: Armed with Our Language, We Went to War—The Navajo Code Talkers

During WWII, a select group of young Navajo men devised a secret code using their language. The code was never broken. A cloak of secrecy hung over the Code Talkers' service until the code was declassified in 1968; the men were finally honored for their military contributions in 1982. In this presentation from November 10, 2015, Arizona State University Professor Laura Tohe, a native speaker of Navajo and daughter of a Code Talker, discussed the Code Talkers’ cultural background, how the code was devised and used, and how Navajo spiritual beliefs were used to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
