Lecture/Seminar Cafe Scientifique: "Safety in the Grey Lane: When & Where Older Adults Drive" 2013-04-02 18:30:00

People over age 80 are the fastest growing segment of the population today and the number of those driving is also increasing. What compensations are older drivers making to keep themselves safe on the road? How are gender, age, psychosocial and health factors influencing these decisions? Join UVic researchers Holly Tuokko (Psychology/Centre on Aging) and Phyllis McGee (Centre on Aging) as they share preliminary findings and invite discussion on a five-year national study underway at the UVic Centre on Aging.

Film "Rust and Bone" 2013-04-02 19:00:00



Director: Jacques Audiard  

France, 2012, 123 min; French with subtitles; 18A

“A powerhouse!” –Los Angeles Times

“One of the year’s best films!” –Salon

“A film thrillingly raw and essential, life-affirming, sublime.”

--Philadelphia Inquirer

WINNER! BEST PICTURE! –BFI London Film Festival

Stéphanie (Marion Cotillard) faces many challenges. First, she works at a marine park on the Côte d’Azur, where she trains killer whales to obey her commands. Second, she tries to tame a man named Ali (Matthias Schoenaerts. Ali’s résumé is not a pretty one: bouncer, boxer, bare-knuckle fighter, bored security guard.

Yet this is a love story, of a brutish kind. After Stéphanie is badly disabled in an accident, and shorn of hope, it is Ali who offers her salvation. “Rust and Bone” might as well be called “Water and Light”; it glitters and flares with the urge to renew those things—limbs, knuckles, lovemaking, and parental bonds—which are easily fractured and lost.

Only the toughest viewer can withhold sympathy for Cotillard, whose proud and pleading gaze would have made her a star in the silent era. –The New Yorker

Lecture/Seminar The Great Oxidation Event and a Siderian Snowball Earth: MIF based correlation of early Paleoproterozoic glaciations 2013-04-02 15:00:00

TAO Seminar

Dr. Paul F. Hoffman, Harvard University

Abstract: The Great Oxidation Event (GOE) is best defined by the disappearance of mass-independent fractionation (MIF) of S-isotopes in sedimentary sulfide and sulfate minerals, indicating an apparent irreversible rise in atmospheric O2 above 10-5 PAL (2 ppm) at a point in Siderian (2.50-2.30 Ga) time. From a planetary atmosphere perspective, the GOE could have triggered a major glaciation through the destruction of reduced greenhouse gases (CH4, H2S, SO2, H2, etc.). However, existing correlations between early Paleoproterozoic successions divorce the low-latitude Makganyene glaciation in southern Africa from the GOE. They also imply a younger age for the GOE in southern Africa (~2.3 Ga) compared with North America (~2.4 Ga), which is physically implausible. A new correlation scheme is proposed in which the Makganyene glaciation (Griqualand West basin) is correlated with the second of three Huronian glaciations in North America (Bruce and lower Vagner formations), the one with postglacial cap-carbonates, with the Meteorite Bore Member (Turee Creek Group) in Western Australia, and with an erosion surface in the middle Duitschland Formation (Eastern Transvaal basin) across which the GOE occurs. The correlation is consistent with existing MIF and other atmospheric redox proxy data, as well as with U-Pb and Re-Os geochronology. In the new scheme, only three glaciations (the minimum allowable) are needed globally, all three are represented in southern Africa, and the second was a Siderian snowball Earth coincident with a globally synchronous GOE at ~2.4 Ga.
