What is Chirality and How Did It Get In My Molecules?

Chirality is all around us (and inside of us!), but most of us do not know what it is. Chirality effects everything from how we perceive beauty to how drugs affect us. Come to Friday’s seminar and learn what chirality is, how we see and create it, how it manifests itself in living things, and how it got there in the first place.

The 2018 Palu, Indonesia Earthquake: What can this catastrophe teach us about being ready and resilient when our own quake strikes?

A bit over a week ago a M7.5 earthquake in Indonesia triggered strong shaking, an unexpected tsunami, liquefaction and catastrophic landslides. While the official death toll is about 2000, there are many thousands of people missing and many will never be found. In the meantime, survivors are struggling with a lack of food and clean water. This catastrophe is has many lessons for us – there are a lot of geologic similarities between what happened in Palu and what will happen in the Puget Sound – a large earthquake in an urban area, a locally generated tsunami and large landslides. Will we be ready and resilient? That depends on you!
