They have begun to “blend," if you will, since we went virtual and began holding them using Zoom. Read on for a message from Bobby G:

As long as we are holding these meetings via Zoom, consider them to be sessions where we discuss whatever topics participants wish to discuss, be it how to use Zoom, or how to deal with iPhone or Mac computer problems. The sessions are very relaxed and free-form. If you tire of the discussion or have to leave before the session is over, all you have to do is say your goodbyes and click the Leave the session button on your Zoom screen. No offense taken if you leave early. Really.

I will do my best to deal with whatever issues or questions participants raise, and if I can’t provide an immediate answer to a problem, I will research it and post an answer on the techtuesday@groups.io site.

I will not know to whom to email a Zoom invitation unless you tell me you want to attend a session. If you want to attend either session, please email me at rfg1647@icloud.com, anytime but no later than Tuesday or Thursday At 9:00 am (M&V).

“Everything You Wanted to Know about the FTC But Were Afraid to Ask” with Barry Cutler
Barry was a judicial law clerk for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in Manhattan from 1968 to 1970. He then returned to New Haven as an Assistant U.S. Attorney (federal prosecutor) from 1970 to 1974. During that time, he also was an adjunct faculty member and taught a trial practice seminar at the Yale Law School. In 1974 he moved to Washington D.C. and worked with the FTC for 4 years. Since 1978 Barry was a partner in three law firms handling litigation and consumer protection counseling. From 1990-1993 Barry served as Director of the FTC’s Consumer Protection Bureau and served as the U.S. Representative to the Consumer Protection Directorate of the OECD in Paris. Barry retired in 2019.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) along with the SEC and CPSC, is one of several alphabet soup agencies that are called” Independent Agencies.” Why are some of these agencies” independent” while others like the EPA, CDC, FDA, & FEMA are not “independent”? Is it truly independent, as its classification implies, or does it work with other independent agencies and/or non-independent agencies? Who provides oversight over the FTC? How does the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection help the consumer? What are some of their most challenging issues?

“The Evolution of the Human Diet” with Dr. Briana Pobiner, paleoanthropologist at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History and an Associate Research Professor of Anthropology at the George Washington University.

Dr. Pobiner’s research centers on the development of human diets with a focus on meat-eating but has included topics as diverse as human cannibalism and chimpanzee carnivory. Since joining the Smithsonian in 2005 she assisted in putting together the Hall of Human Origins, in addition to continuing her active fieldwork, collections studies, and experimental research programs which have taken her to Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Indonesia, Romania, and the United States. Dr. Pobiner also leads the Smithsonian’s Human Origins Program in education and outreach efforts.

When you hear about the “paleo diet”, you probably think of the modern diet trend which is often centered around eating significant amounts of meat. But what role did meat-eating play in human evolution? When did our ancestors first start eating meat, and how did that change over time? How did meat-eating change our bodies, our brains, and our behavior – and how do we know?

Join Briana Pobiner on a journey through the various line of evidence for meat-eating in human prehistory.

“The Epic Migrations of Birds“ with Dr. Peter Marra, Director of the Georgetown Environmental Initiative (GEI), Laudato Si’ Professor in Biology and the Environment, and Professor in the McCourt School of Public Policy. Dr. Marra had a 20-year career at the Smithsonian Institution, most recently as Director of the Migratory Bird Center. He has a Ph.D. from Dartmouth College and has authored over 225 papers published in journals such as Science, Nature and Conservation Biology on various aspects of the biology and conservation of birds and other animals, as well as on topics as broad as urban disease ecology. He co-edited the frequently cited book - Birds of Two Worlds and recently published a second book - Cat Wars: The Devastating Consequences of Cuddly Killer. Migration is one of the most engaging phenomena of the animal world and one epitomized by birds. Migratory birds are the Olympiads of the natural world - traveling extreme distances, flying at night in flocks of tens of thousands of individuals, and moving through treacherous terrain with untold obstacles threatening their every move. Today, over 50% of North America’s migratory species are declining at unprecedented rates – and for most of these species we don’t know why. Dr. Marra will take us on a hemispheric journey to discover the unknown migrations of the birds, explaining the latest technologies used for tracking and why it’s up to us to uncover the secrets of their biology to protect these marvelous species.

“The Birth of Rationality and the Roots of our Civilization” with Pierre Larroque. Pierre Larroque was trained in sciences in France and has always kept a keen interest in the history of scientific thought.

At the origins, women and men counted basically for trading stuff. The manipulations of numbers stemmed from commercial or taxation needs, and basic geometry allowed for constructing buildings and surveying lands. Events and “the order of things” derived from godly or royal/tyrannical edicts. Starting in about 570 BC, the Greeks questioned “the principles and reasons for all things divine and human.” This led to the birth of rational argumentation – the concept of proof and demonstrable truth – in human enquiries. A few intellectual giants - Pythagoras, Plato, Euclid, Archimedes, Apollonius – developed logic and the use of reason as the bases for our civilization’s advances. Their construction of mathematics, and thus of logic and philosophy, still underpins our societies, after we rediscovered it from Arabic sources in the Renaissance. Pierre Larroque will lead you through the path which those giants cleared – the synchronous birth of mathematics, rational thinking, and democracy.

How We Have Understood the Universe with Pierre Larroque. Pierre Larroque was trained in sciences in France and has always kept a keen interest in the history of scientific thought.

From the origins, women and men have looked at the night sky and wondered about it all. They observed the moon phases and the appearance of constellations at regular places and times in the night’s horizon (the Zodiac). The Greeks specifically recorded the consistent retrograde movements of five wanderers (“planets” in Greek) amongst all stars, which they strove to explain in an orderly earth-centered Universe. It is only early in the 17th century that Kepler described the solar system correctly, and late in that century that Newton published the laws which underpin not only the planets’ movements but all classical gravitational phenomena. It took Einstein at the beginning of the 20th century satisfactorily to synthesize and justify the laws of gravity, and numerous followers later in that century to establish quantum mechanics as the theory which explains what the basic constituents of the Universe are and how they behave. Pierre Larroque will lead you through this extraordinary journey of discoveries, culminating with how certain we are of how the Universe was created in a Big Bang 13.79 billion years ago, and why it is today as we live it.

Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Max Ernst, and Duke Ellington have all been described as creative geniuses. Yet, one was an engineer, one was a scientist, one was a visual artist, and one was a musical composer. This lecture will explore the meaning of creativity and genius by looking at the lives and work of four giants and others who have been given the title genius. Are invention, scientific discovery, and artistic production essentially the same human endeavor? What are the similarities and differences? If they are distinct activities, can the concept of genius somehow link them together, or is genius another idea that has different meanings in different contexts? Tune in to find out. Our speaker is Michael Geselowitz, PhD, Senior Director of the IEEE History Center. Through an arrangement between Stevens Institute of Technology and IEEE, Geselowitz is currently Industry Associate Professor of History of Engineering at Stevens. Immediately prior to joining IEEE in 1997, he was Group Manager at Eric Marder Associates, a New York market research firm, where he supervised Ph.D. scientists and social scientists undertaking market analyses for Fortune 500 high-tech companies. Geselowitz holds S.B. degrees in electrical engineering and in anthropology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in anthropology from Harvard University. His research focus has been on the history and social relations of technology. He has worked as an electronics engineer for the Department of Defense, and he has held teaching and research positions relating to the social study of technology at M.I.T., Harvard, and Yale University, including a stint as Assistant Collections Manager/Curator at Harvard‘s Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology.
