 DINOSAURS AT DUSK!

more dinosaurs

 

A whirlwind time travel adventure back to the epoch of the dinosaurs!

 

We have to tell you that we've been waiting aeons to announce that we have a full dome, computer animated dinosaurs show! A larger than life extravaganza rife with roaring monsters from the ancient age: bounding, stomping, flying, hunting, and foraging frenetically above us.

 

Well, by heavens, now we can tell the world that the dinosaurs have arrived at the Southworth Planetarium! (Or, to get the verb tense right, they WILL arrive on September 6, 2013.)

 

Dinosaurs!

 

Propel yourself back through the epochs toexplore an Earth teeming with Pteradons, Triceratrops and, of course, the ferocious -and therefore wonderfully marketable- T-Rex!

 

Sir Richard Owen*

 

And, if we can say so, this is NOT your great great great grandfather's dinosaur show with slides and lethargic Sunday afternoon nature special narration. Instead, we're embarking on a causality violating adventure through time to discover a planet dominated by the largest land animals that ever set claw to topsoil.

 

Dinosaurs

 

This September, come back to the Southworth Planetarium and then venture back to the Mesozoic era for a personal odyssey through the realm of the dinosaurs.

 

Matinee and evening shows!

September 6, 2013
7:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Southworth Planetarium
A brand new full dome computer animated show featuring a vast array of larger than life dinosaurs! A father and daughter travel through time to the epoch of the dinosaurs and learn the origins of flight.

 DINOSAURS AT DUSK!

more dinosaurs

 

A whirlwind time travel adventure back to the epoch of the dinosaurs!

 

We have to tell you that we've been waiting aeons to announce that we have a full dome, computer animated dinosaurs show! A larger than life extravaganza rife with roaring monsters from the ancient age: bounding, stomping, flying, hunting, and foraging frenetically above us.

 

Well, by heavens, now we can tell the world that the dinosaurs have arrived at the Southworth Planetarium! (Or, to get the verb tense right, they WILL arrive on September 6, 2013.)

 

Dinosaurs!

 

Propel yourself back through the epochs toexplore an Earth teeming with Pteradons, Triceratrops and, of course, the ferocious -and therefore wonderfully marketable- T-Rex!

 

Sir Richard Owen*

 

And, if we can say so, this is NOT your great great great grandfather's dinosaur show with slides and lethargic Sunday afternoon nature special narration. Instead, we're embarking on a causality violating adventure through time to discover a planet dominated by the largest land animals that ever set claw to topsoil.

 

Dinosaurs

 

This September, come back to the Southworth Planetarium and then venture back to the Mesozoic era for a personal odyssey through the realm of the dinosaurs.

 

Matinee and evening shows!

September 6, 2013
8:30 PM to 9:30 PM
Southworth Planetarium
A brand new full dome computer animated show featuring a vast array of larger than life dinosaurs! A father and daughter travel through time to the epoch of the dinosaurs and learn the origins of flight.

 DINOSAURS AT DUSK!

more dinosaurs

 

A whirlwind time travel adventure back to the epoch of the dinosaurs!

 

We have to tell you that we've been waiting aeons to announce that we have a full dome, computer animated dinosaurs show! A larger than life extravaganza rife with roaring monsters from the ancient age: bounding, stomping, flying, hunting, and foraging frenetically above us.

 

Well, by heavens, now we can tell the world that the dinosaurs have arrived at the Southworth Planetarium! (Or, to get the verb tense right, they WILL arrive on September 6, 2013.)

 

Dinosaurs!

 

Propel yourself back through the epochs toexplore an Earth teeming with Pteradons, Triceratrops and, of course, the ferocious -and therefore wonderfully marketable- T-Rex!

 

Sir Richard Owen*

 

And, if we can say so, this is NOT your great great great grandfather's dinosaur show with slides and lethargic Sunday afternoon nature special narration. Instead, we're embarking on a causality violating adventure through time to discover a planet dominated by the largest land animals that ever set claw to topsoil.

 

Dinosaurs

 

This September, come back to the Southworth Planetarium and then venture back to the Mesozoic era for a personal odyssey through the realm of the dinosaurs.

 

Matinee and evening shows!

September 8, 2013
3:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Southworth Planetarium
A brand new full dome computer animated show featuring a vast array of larger than life dinosaurs! A father and daughter travel through time to the epoch of the dinosaurs and learn the origins of flight.

 DINOSAURS AT DUSK!

more dinosaurs

 

A whirlwind time travel adventure back to the epoch of the dinosaurs!

 

We have to tell you that we've been waiting aeons to announce that we have a full dome, computer animated dinosaurs show! A larger than life extravaganza rife with roaring monsters from the ancient age: bounding, stomping, flying, hunting, and foraging frenetically above us.

 

Well, by heavens, now we can tell the world that the dinosaurs have arrived at the Southworth Planetarium! (Or, to get the verb tense right, they WILL arrive on September 6, 2013.)

 

Dinosaurs!

 

Propel yourself back through the epochs toexplore an Earth teeming with Pteradons, Triceratrops and, of course, the ferocious -and therefore wonderfully marketable- T-Rex!

 

Sir Richard Owen*

 

And, if we can say so, this is NOT your great great great grandfather's dinosaur show with slides and lethargic Sunday afternoon nature special narration. Instead, we're embarking on a causality violating adventure through time to discover a planet dominated by the largest land animals that ever set claw to topsoil.

 

Dinosaurs

 

This September, come back to the Southworth Planetarium and then venture back to the Mesozoic era for a personal odyssey through the realm of the dinosaurs.

 

Matinee and evening shows!

September 11, 2013
1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Southworth Planetarium
A brand new full dome computer animated show featuring a vast array of larger than life dinosaurs! A father and daughter travel through time to the epoch of the dinosaurs and learn the origins of flight.

This workshop will be held on Thursday, September 12th from 12-1pm in room 423/424 of the Glickman Library on the USM Portland Campus.

 DINOSAURS AT DUSK!

more dinosaurs

 

A whirlwind time travel adventure back to the epoch of the dinosaurs!

 

We have to tell you that we've been waiting aeons to announce that we have a full dome, computer animated dinosaurs show! A larger than life extravaganza rife with roaring monsters from the ancient age: bounding, stomping, flying, hunting, and foraging frenetically above us.

 

Well, by heavens, now we can tell the world that the dinosaurs have arrived at the Southworth Planetarium! (Or, to get the verb tense right, they WILL arrive on September 6, 2013.)

 

Dinosaurs!

 

Propel yourself back through the epochs toexplore an Earth teeming with Pteradons, Triceratrops and, of course, the ferocious -and therefore wonderfully marketable- T-Rex!

 

Sir Richard Owen*

 

And, if we can say so, this is NOT your great great great grandfather's dinosaur show with slides and lethargic Sunday afternoon nature special narration. Instead, we're embarking on a causality violating adventure through time to discover a planet dominated by the largest land animals that ever set claw to topsoil.

 

Dinosaurs

 

This September, come back to the Southworth Planetarium and then venture back to the Mesozoic era for a personal odyssey through the realm of the dinosaurs.

 

Matinee and evening shows!

September 13, 2013
7:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Southworth Planetarium
A brand new full dome computer animated show featuring a vast array of larger than life dinosaurs! A father and daughter travel through time to the epoch of the dinosaurs and learn the origins of flight.

Betty Rines

GORHAM, Maine -- The University of Southern Maine (USM) School of Music will open the fall season with a Faculty Concert Series performance of Maine-ly British Brass: A Tribute to the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble and the London Brass.

This long-awaited concert was postponed because of a winter 2013 snowstorm.

The details of the concert are:

Maine-ly British Brass: A Tribute to the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble and the London Brass, 8 p.m., Friday, Sept. 13, Corthell Concert Hall, USM Gorham Campus; Tickets $15, general public; $10, seniors, USM employees and alumni; $5, students. Make reservations online at http://usm.maine.edu/music/boxoffice or call the USM Music Box Office at (207) 780-5555.

To commemorate a British trumpeter and his unique brass ensemble, Betty Rines, USM trumpet faculty member, has once again assembled top-of-the-line professional brass musicians for the USM School of Music Faculty Concert Series tribute concert. Of the 12 professionals performing in this concert, seven are USM faculty, and five are USM alumni.

Peter Martin, professor of Music, will conduct the ensemble which includes trumpeters Betty Rines, Mark Tipton, alumnus, Alan Kaschub, who is also the director of the School of Music, and Matthew Lagarde, alumnus; trombonists Brian Diehl, faculty member, Mark Manduca, faculty member, Chris Oberholtzer, associate professor of Music and director of Jazz Studies, and Thomas Michaud, alumnus; Andrew Pelletier, Grammy Award-winning alumnus, on horn; Dan Hunter, faculty member, on tuba; and percussionists Nancy Smith, faculty member, and Joshua Champagne, alumnus.

Rines recalls a time in her life when as a young trumpet player she was delighted and inspired to listen to the full, rich sound of the brass section of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

"As brass musicians, we sit in the orchestra and wait for our few moments of glory -- grand, fantastic and brief," Rines admitted, adding that in 1951, Phillip Jones changed that. "Jones took the brass from the back row to the forefront,” she said.

The Philip Jones Brass Ensemble started off merely as a basic brass quintet before it eventually transformed into a much larger ensemble, complete with 10 brass solo musicians. The most important feature of Jones' influence on arrangements and compositions for these ensembles is that it recognized brass musicians as chamber players, providing unlimited new possibilities for contemporary composers.

From arrangements of pieces from the Baroque and Renaissance periods, to contemporary works, what will be heard in this performance will be an ensemble of soloists. 

Those needing special accommodations to participate fully in this program, contact Lori Arsenault, (207) 780-5142, larsenault@usm.maine.edu. Hearing impaired: call USM's telex / TDD number (207) 780-5646.

 DINOSAURS AT DUSK!

more dinosaurs

 

A whirlwind time travel adventure back to the epoch of the dinosaurs!

 

We have to tell you that we've been waiting aeons to announce that we have a full dome, computer animated dinosaurs show! A larger than life extravaganza rife with roaring monsters from the ancient age: bounding, stomping, flying, hunting, and foraging frenetically above us.

 

Well, by heavens, now we can tell the world that the dinosaurs have arrived at the Southworth Planetarium! (Or, to get the verb tense right, they WILL arrive on September 6, 2013.)

 

Dinosaurs!

 

Propel yourself back through the epochs toexplore an Earth teeming with Pteradons, Triceratrops and, of course, the ferocious -and therefore wonderfully marketable- T-Rex!

 

Sir Richard Owen*

 

And, if we can say so, this is NOT your great great great grandfather's dinosaur show with slides and lethargic Sunday afternoon nature special narration. Instead, we're embarking on a causality violating adventure through time to discover a planet dominated by the largest land animals that ever set claw to topsoil.

 

Dinosaurs

 

This September, come back to the Southworth Planetarium and then venture back to the Mesozoic era for a personal odyssey through the realm of the dinosaurs.

 

Matinee and evening shows!

September 13, 2013
8:30 PM to 9:30 PM
Southworth Planetarium
A brand new full dome computer animated show featuring a vast array of larger than life dinosaurs! A father and daughter travel through time to the epoch of the dinosaurs and learn the origins of flight.

 DINOSAURS AT DUSK!

more dinosaurs

 

A whirlwind time travel adventure back to the epoch of the dinosaurs!

 

We have to tell you that we've been waiting aeons to announce that we have a full dome, computer animated dinosaurs show! A larger than life extravaganza rife with roaring monsters from the ancient age: bounding, stomping, flying, hunting, and foraging frenetically above us.

 

Well, by heavens, now we can tell the world that the dinosaurs have arrived at the Southworth Planetarium! (Or, to get the verb tense right, they WILL arrive on September 6, 2013.)

 

Dinosaurs!

 

Propel yourself back through the epochs toexplore an Earth teeming with Pteradons, Triceratrops and, of course, the ferocious -and therefore wonderfully marketable- T-Rex!

 

Sir Richard Owen*

 

And, if we can say so, this is NOT your great great great grandfather's dinosaur show with slides and lethargic Sunday afternoon nature special narration. Instead, we're embarking on a causality violating adventure through time to discover a planet dominated by the largest land animals that ever set claw to topsoil.

 

Dinosaurs

 

This September, come back to the Southworth Planetarium and then venture back to the Mesozoic era for a personal odyssey through the realm of the dinosaurs.

 

Matinee and evening shows!

September 16, 2013
1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Southworth Planetarium
A brand new full dome computer animated show featuring a vast array of larger than life dinosaurs! A father and daughter travel through time to the epoch of the dinosaurs and learn the origins of flight.

You do not have to complete the WMPG on-air training to host Husky Tunes, and you will be provided with technical and hosting assistance. There is some prep work required: you do have to read and sign a rules form, and pick your music in advance.

Every Tuesday, our student and community members get together and hold a practice. We divide up into groups, fencing vs "heavy list" fighting, and then break down into smaller interest groups, usually overseen by an instructor or a more-experienced member.

Some examples are: sport fencing, rapier, Medieval or Renaissance fencing.

Faculty Discussion: Things We Wish That We Knew When We Went On-line For the First Time

Thinking about developing an on-line course? Wondering what you should know as you consider embarking down this path? Wouldn't it be nice to know what others who have gone down this road have learned, even as you take your first steps in this direction? A panel of four people, two who have created multiple on-line courses, two who have just finished creating their first, will discuss what they wished they knew from the get-go.

This discussion is as much about creating a sense of community for those who are new at this sort of thing as it is an opportunity to learn from the experience of others. Those who are yet to create an on-line class will be encouraged to ask questions and interact with each other and the panel as we form a community of learners.

Note, this discussion is not intended for those who are experts in on-line teaching, this one is for the rest of us. Bring your questions and concerns, and let’s see where things go.

This faculty panel discussion will be facilitated by Rob Sanford. Panel discussion participants also include: John Broida, Betty Robinson, & Libby Bischof.

FACULTY PANEL

Robert SanfordRob Sanford

I am chair of the department of Environmental Science and have been at USM since 1996. I’ve flirted with online courses in the past, but cowardice and laziness kept me from taking the full plunge until the summer of 2013, when I jumped in with both feet, teaching simultaneous online lecture and laboratory courses. Thanks to the mercy and kindness of more experienced colleagues and the USM Help Desk, my students and I did okay. I figure if done right, online teaching can be a real asset for students and the university, so if I can help others, it is worth it. I decided this workshop would be a good start and that there is no time to waste. Learn more about Rob.

 

Bischoff Libby Bischof 

I am an Associate Professor of History and have been at USM since 2007.  For the past few years I've been actively following the debates about various forms of online teaching and learning.  I frequently employ blackboard, blog, and social media assignments in my courses, and am very interested in digital humanities. This summer, partly as an experiment to see if I could deliver high quality content in an online setting, I decided to turn one of my face-to-face classes, a 300-level History of American Popular Culture, into an online course.  I found the experience to be rigorous and very rewarding.  I was able to work with a variety of students from USM and other colleges around the country as well as a few Maine high school teachers.  I am in the process of planning another 7-week online course, and welcome the chance to answer any questions about the pros and cons of converting a course from face to face to online, and the online teaching experience in general!
Learn more about Libby. View recent interview with Libby.

 

Betty Robinson

I began my online journey when I left the LAC Dean's office and signed up for a course offered fully online by my professional association.  So at least I had that experience going for me before I tried incorporating online teaching in my own practice.  Since then the CTEL folks have been my  "best friends," and I've surprised myself by becoming more adept than I expected to be in territory that did NOT come naturally.  I recover from mistakes far more easily than I once did and even explore new tech enhanced learning and teaching options on my own (knowing just whom to call when I get in over my head!). This was not my career plan, but increasingly, online is where I find my students due in large part to their busy lives. Learn more about Betty.

 

John Broida John Broida

John Broida, Associate Professor of Psychology and chair of the Psychology Department, is also active in the National Center for Academic Transformation. This group of technological innovators is involved in helping faculty find cost-effective ways to use technology. His interest in using technology and association with NCAT means that he is often approached by people interested in getting their products to innovators.

 DINOSAURS AT DUSK!

more dinosaurs

 

A whirlwind time travel adventure back to the epoch of the dinosaurs!

 

We have to tell you that we've been waiting aeons to announce that we have a full dome, computer animated dinosaurs show! A larger than life extravaganza rife with roaring monsters from the ancient age: bounding, stomping, flying, hunting, and foraging frenetically above us.

 

Well, by heavens, now we can tell the world that the dinosaurs have arrived at the Southworth Planetarium! (Or, to get the verb tense right, they WILL arrive on September 6, 2013.)

 

Dinosaurs!

 

Propel yourself back through the epochs toexplore an Earth teeming with Pteradons, Triceratrops and, of course, the ferocious -and therefore wonderfully marketable- T-Rex!

 

Sir Richard Owen*

 

And, if we can say so, this is NOT your great great great grandfather's dinosaur show with slides and lethargic Sunday afternoon nature special narration. Instead, we're embarking on a causality violating adventure through time to discover a planet dominated by the largest land animals that ever set claw to topsoil.

 

Dinosaurs

 

This September, come back to the Southworth Planetarium and then venture back to the Mesozoic era for a personal odyssey through the realm of the dinosaurs.

 

Matinee and evening shows!

September 18, 2013
1:00 PM to 2:00 PM

A brand new full dome computer animated show featuring a vast array of larger than life dinosaurs! A father and daughter travel through time to the epoch of the dinosaurs and learn the origins of flight.

Beyond the Discussion Board Rucha Image

Far too often, the only interaction between students in an online course is through the discussion board, where the typical assignment asks students to respond to a prompt and then reply to several of their classmate’s posts. Discussion boards are also the mainstay of online group work and usually they are a poor fit to student needs. Sometimes, these   discussions can result in a meaningful exchange of ideas amongst its participants. However, as anyone who has ever taken an online course can attest, rarely do any of these discussions result in the manifestation of deep analysis or critical thinking. The vast majority of the time, these exchanges remain at the surface level and end up feeling more like busywork, rather than an essential tool for learning.

Pieter Photo

Now, more than ever, it is essential to break free from the dependence on the discussion board. CTEL has been working with several faculty members who want to include group work and discussion in their online courses, and we have been able to introduce effective options that don’t sacrifice the convenience of an online interaction. On September 19th we are offering a session on the ‘Online Discussion’ and it will explore ways that instructors can enhance interaction within their online courses. We will explore emerging technologies and new interactive tools that are changing the “discussion board” paradigm, such as Adobe Connect, GoReact, VoiceThread, TeamMaker , Google + Communities, etc.

 

Workshop Resources:

We have created a sample course in Blackboard that shows how the tools discussed in the workshop can be integrated. To access this sample course, log into Blackboard. Click on the 'Courses' tab, located on the upper-left side of the screen. Under 'Course Search', search for 'Beyond the Discussion Board'. Click on the downward facing arrow under the course ID and click on 'enroll'. See screenshots below for details:

Tom Allen
Former U.S. Congressman

Lecture given as part of the Fall 2013 Speaker Series
"Politics Then and Now, In Maine and the Nation."

Event is free and open to the public.

Tom Allen, Democrat, served as Maine's 1st District congressman from 1996 to 2008. An attorney, Allen is a graduate of Bowdoin College and a Rhodes Scholar. He was a member of the Portland City Council from 1989 to 1995 and served as Mayor in 1991. In Congress, Allen's first major initiative was a bi-partisan campaign finance bill. He is the author of Dangerous Convictions (Oxford U. Press, 2013), which examines the problems of polarization and dysfunction in Congress


Full list of speakers for "Politics Then and Now"

About the series:

We’ve come a long way since President John F. Kennedy characterized politics as “a noble calling,” to today, when the nation’s political system is routinely described as “dysfunctional” and the political atmosphere in Washington and Augusta as “poisonous.”

Competition and cooperation co-exist in all healthy systems, side by side and sometimes cheek-by-jowel, to advance the system’s purposes. Whether it is a forest ecosystem, the human body, a large bureaucracy, or an economic system, its elements compete for resources to meet their own needs, even as they act to contribute to the survival and persistence of the system itself.  Somewhere along the way from the 1960s, the U.S. political system lost sight of this important principle, threatening its public credibility, trust, and purposes.

Each speaker in the series will address these timely and important questions:

  • How was politics “played” in earlier times in Maine and the nation?  And, how has that changed today?
  • How did this come about? What are the implications for the state and the nation of our continuing along this path? And, what will it take to change course?
  • What does Maine have to offer the nation in this regard, based on our experience here?

September 19, 2013 “Health Information Technology: Enhancing the Quality and Safety of Patient Care” Prof. Carol Fackler, DNSc, RN, School of Nursing

This presentation will introduce the audience to health information technology as it is emerging in the U.S. as an important component of our health care system.  A brief history of health information technology will be followed by a more detailed discussion of the electronic health record, clinical decision support systems, and telehealth.  Applications of health information technology in Maine, both current and projected, will be described.  Plenty of time will be allotted for questions from the audience.

Carol Fackler, DNSc, RN joined the USM faculty in 2010 as an Assistant Professor of Nursing.  She formerly served as a Visiting Assistant Professor in the School of Nursing at Fairfield University in Connecticut.  Her practice career of over 25 years as an emergency nurse has provided Dr. Fackler with firsthand knowledge of the health care delivery system.  Dr. Fackler’s interest in health information technology emerged as a direct result of her knowledge of hospital organizations and health care delivery systems; and in 2010, she developed the informatics technology course for the Doctor of Nursing Practice program at USM.

Dr. Fackler received her undergraduate degree in nursing from the University of Rhode Island in 1973; her MS from the College of Nursing and Health Professions from the University of Massachusetts-Boston in 2002; and her Doctor of Nursing Science from Yale University in 2010. 

At USM, Dr. Fackler currently teaches undergraduate and graduate research, as well as informatics technology.  She is currently developing a graduate course on population health for the spring of 2013.

Welcome Event

This event is intended to welcome faculty to USM, provide a brief and basic introduction to resources related to faculty’s teaching, scholarly and service responsibilities; provide new faculty with a chance to network with each other and with colleagues within and across departments and campuses. There will be an opportunity to network, to hear from a panel of representatives of different departments about the resources they offer to help you and your students be successful, followed by a question and answer period.  It is our hope that this welcome event will help new faculty begin to answer these questions for themselves: What USM resources can I use to help me be successful and thrive at USM?

We have to tell you that we've been waiting aeons to announce that we have a full dome, computer animated dinosaurs show! A larger than life extravaganza rife with roaring monsters from the ancient age: bounding, stomping, flying, hunting, and foraging frenetically above us.

 

Well, by heavens, now we can tell the world that the dinosaurs have arrived at the Southworth Planetarium! (Or, to get the verb tense right, they WILL arrive on September 6, 2013.)

 

Dinosaurs!

 

Propel yourself back through the epochs toexplore an Earth teeming with Pteradons, Triceratrops and, of course, the ferocious -and therefore wonderfully marketable- T-Rex!

 

Sir Richard Owen*

 

And, if we can say so, this is NOT your great great great grandfather's dinosaur show with slides and lethargic Sunday afternoon nature special narration. Instead, we're embarking on a causality violating adventure through time to discover a planet dominated by the largest land animals that ever set claw to topsoil.

 

Dinosaurs

 

This September, come back to the Southworth Planetarium and then venture back to the Mesozoic era for a personal odyssey through the realm of the dinosaurs.

 

Matinee and evening shows!

A brand new full dome computer animated show featuring a vast array of larger than life dinosaurs! A father and daughter travel through time to the epoch of the dinosaurs and learn the origins of flight.

 DINOSAURS AT DUSK!

more dinosaurs

 

A whirlwind time travel adventure back to the epoch of the dinosaurs!

 

We have to tell you that we've been waiting aeons to announce that we have a full dome, computer animated dinosaurs show! A larger than life extravaganza rife with roaring monsters from the ancient age: bounding, stomping, flying, hunting, and foraging frenetically above us.

 

Well, by heavens, now we can tell the world that the dinosaurs have arrived at the Southworth Planetarium! (Or, to get the verb tense right, they WILL arrive on September 6, 2013.)

 

Dinosaurs!

 

Propel yourself back through the epochs toexplore an Earth teeming with Pteradons, Triceratrops and, of course, the ferocious -and therefore wonderfully marketable- T-Rex!

 

Sir Richard Owen*

 

And, if we can say so, this is NOT your great great great grandfather's dinosaur show with slides and lethargic Sunday afternoon nature special narration. Instead, we're embarking on a causality violating adventure through time to discover a planet dominated by the largest land animals that ever set claw to topsoil.

 

Dinosaurs

 

This September, come back to the Southworth Planetarium and then venture back to the Mesozoic era for a personal odyssey through the realm of the dinosaurs.

 

Matinee and evening shows!

September 22, 2013
3:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Southworth Planetarium
A brand new full dome computer animated show featuring a vast array of larger than life dinosaurs! A father and daughter travel through time to the epoch of the dinosaurs and learn the origins of flight.

Solar System

"EIGHT PLANETS AND COUNTING" OMNI DOME SHOW!

We're offering an updated version of the "Eight Planets and Counting" program!     Humanity's knowledge of the solar system has changed dramatically within the last few years.    As we know the International Astronomical Union has demoted Pluto, but astronomers have also found an array of other bodies, called "Trans-Neptunian Objects."  

The omni-dome "Eight Planets and Counting" program guides you through the solar system: from our parent star, the Sun, out to the realm beyond Neptune.   Along the way, we'll visit each of the eight planets in turn, we'll explore the Moon, and we'll fly through the asteroid belt. 

Join us for this fantastic full dome odyssey through the solar system!

Husky Tunes is a two-hour music radio show programmed and hosted by a new different USM student each week. You do not have to complete the WMPG on-air training to host Husky Tunes, and you will be provided with technical and hosting assistance. There is some prep work required: you do have to read and sign a rules form, and pick your music in advance.

Contact Lisa for available dates if interested!

Every Tuesday, our student and community members get together and hold a practice. We divide up into groups, fencing vs "heavy list" fighting, and then break down into smaller interest groups, usually overseen by an instructor or a more-experienced member.

Some examples are: sport fencing, rapier, Medieval or Renaissance fencing.

 DINOSAURS AT DUSK!

more dinosaurs

 

A whirlwind time travel adventure back to the epoch of the dinosaurs!

 

We have to tell you that we've been waiting aeons to announce that we have a full dome, computer animated dinosaurs show! A larger than life extravaganza rife with roaring monsters from the ancient age: bounding, stomping, flying, hunting, and foraging frenetically above us.

 

Well, by heavens, now we can tell the world that the dinosaurs have arrived at the Southworth Planetarium! (Or, to get the verb tense right, they WILL arrive on September 6, 2013.)

 

Dinosaurs!

 

Propel yourself back through the epochs toexplore an Earth teeming with Pteradons, Triceratrops and, of course, the ferocious -and therefore wonderfully marketable- T-Rex!

 

Sir Richard Owen*

 

And, if we can say so, this is NOT your great great great grandfather's dinosaur show with slides and lethargic Sunday afternoon nature special narration. Instead, we're embarking on a causality violating adventure through time to discover a planet dominated by the largest land animals that ever set claw to topsoil.

 

Dinosaurs

 

This September, come back to the Southworth Planetarium and then venture back to the Mesozoic era for a personal odyssey through the realm of the dinosaurs.

 

Matinee and evening shows!

September 25, 2013
1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Southworth Planetarium
A brand new full dome computer animated show featuring a vast array of larger than life dinosaurs! A father and daughter travel through time to the epoch of the dinosaurs and learn the origins of flight.

LANCO Presentation and Engineering challenge

Who: Peter Vachon, LANCO engineer and engineering resident for USM

When/where: Thursday, September 26th12:30pm-1:45pm / Room 217

Description: Peter Vachon is our new engineering resident here at USM. He will be presenting information concerning his company LANCO and their products. This will include an overview PowerPoint, a video demonstration of some of their most recent machines, and a presentation of an engineering problem they are currently trying to figure out. We don’t generally get this kind of in depth insight into the commercial and industrial side of engineering, so come and listen!


Co-op and External Programs here at USM

Who: Gregory S. Cavanaugh, USM Program Manager of External Programs

When/where: Thursday, October 3rd 12:30pm-1:45pm / Room 217

Description: Greg Cavanaugh works here at USM (in this very building, in fact) and handles many of the external and industry-partnered programs that operate in this building. He is one of the resources we have here to help us get valuable experience in industry. In this presentation Greg will explain USM’s co-op program and show how you can get more involved in industry (co-op, tours, internships, etc). For anyone who doesn’t know Greg or anyone who wants to gain some experience, this lecture is a MUST.

 

Research: Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) Sensors and applications

Who: Peter Juarez, Senior Mechanical Engineering student at USM

When/where: Thursday, October 17th 12:30pm-1:45pm / Room 217

Description: Last summer I was fortunate enough to spend 10 weeks in NASA’s Langley Research Center (LaRC) on an internship under the Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate. While I was down there I worked with a researcher named Dr. William ‘Cy’ Wilson. We worked on Surface Acoustic Wave sensors for use in impact detection, wireless interrogation, and strain sensing. If you’ve never heard of SAW devices (guarantee most of you have one in your cellphone), would like to hear what kind of environment it was like at NASA, or are just bored and want free food, come and listen.


USM Fusion Project: Who, What, Why?

Who: Edwin Meserve, President of the Fusion Group, Electrical Engineering student at USM,

When/where: Thursday, October 24th 12:30pm-1:45pm / Room 217

Description: Did you know that the Engineering Student Committee has a sub group called the Fusion Group? Did you know they already successfully made a fusion prototype, and are working on prototype 2? Do you know what fusion is? If you answered no to any of these questions, you should probably come out and hear what Ed has to say. Ed and his officers have been working on this project for several semesters, and have been directly funded by the Student Senate to do so. They are always looking for more help and insight, so this will be a great opportunity to learn more and join in on their research.

George Mitchell
Former U.S. Senator

Lecture given as part of the Fall 2013 Speaker Series
"Politics Then and Now, In Maine and the Nation."

Event is free and open to the public.

George Mitchell, Democrat, served as U.S. Senator from Maine from 1980 to 1995, and as Senate majority leader from 1989 to 1995. He successfully led the effort to enact the Clean Air Act of 1990 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, both signed into law by President George H.W. Bush. Following his Senate career, Mitchell served as Special Envoy to Northern Ireland and as Special Envoy for Middle East Peace. He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Bill Clinton in 1999.


Full list of speakers for "Politics Then and Now"

About the series:

We’ve come a long way since President John F. Kennedy characterized politics as “a noble calling,” to today, when the nation’s political system is routinely described as “dysfunctional” and the political atmosphere in Washington and Augusta as “poisonous.”

Competition and cooperation co-exist in all healthy systems, side by side and sometimes cheek-by-jowel, to advance the system’s purposes. Whether it is a forest ecosystem, the human body, a large bureaucracy, or an economic system, its elements compete for resources to meet their own needs, even as they act to contribute to the survival and persistence of the system itself.  Somewhere along the way from the 1960s, the U.S. political system lost sight of this important principle, threatening its public credibility, trust, and purposes.

Each speaker in the series will address these timely and important questions:

  • How was politics “played” in earlier times in Maine and the nation?  And, how has that changed today?
  • How did this come about? What are the implications for the state and the nation of our continuing along this path? And, what will it take to change course?
  • What does Maine have to offer the nation in this regard, based on our experience here?

Ecocriticism in Unexpected Places

Kent Ryden, USM Faculty

Ecocriticism consists of examining texts for their environmental implications, for the light they shed on relationships between humans and what we tend to call "the natural world." Ecocritics primarily focus on literary texts, but I am interested in the ways in which ecocritical principles can be applied to other areas of study, including (or especially) those which, on the surface, don't appear to be particularly "green." In this talk, I will draw on examples from the fields of mathematics, print culture, and music.

 DINOSAURS AT DUSK!

more dinosaurs

 

A whirlwind time travel adventure back to the epoch of the dinosaurs!

 

We have to tell you that we've been waiting aeons to announce that we have a full dome, computer animated dinosaurs show! A larger than life extravaganza rife with roaring monsters from the ancient age: bounding, stomping, flying, hunting, and foraging frenetically above us.

 

Well, by heavens, now we can tell the world that the dinosaurs have arrived at the Southworth Planetarium! (Or, to get the verb tense right, they WILL arrive on September 6, 2013.)

 

Dinosaurs!

 

Propel yourself back through the epochs toexplore an Earth teeming with Pteradons, Triceratrops and, of course, the ferocious -and therefore wonderfully marketable- T-Rex!

 

Sir Richard Owen*

 

And, if we can say so, this is NOT your great great great grandfather's dinosaur show with slides and lethargic Sunday afternoon nature special narration. Instead, we're embarking on a causality violating adventure through time to discover a planet dominated by the largest land animals that ever set claw to topsoil.

 

Dinosaurs

 

This September, come back to the Southworth Planetarium and then venture back to the Mesozoic era for a personal odyssey through the realm of the dinosaurs.

 

Matinee and evening shows!

A brand new full dome computer animated show featuring a vast array of larger than life dinosaurs! A father and daughter travel through time to the epoch of the dinosaurs and learn the origins of flight.

IBEX: The Search for the Edge of the Solar System

An omni-dome (full dome) presentation about the IBEX (Interstellar Boundary Explorer) probe.      Launched in 2008, the IBEX craft collects energized neutral particles emitted from the heliosphere: the "bubble" enclosing the solar system.   These collections enable the IBEX probe to construct an image of the membrane surrounding us.  The same membrane that protects the solar system from harmful galactic particles.

How does the IBEX probe work?    How does it communicate with Earth?

Join us for this fascinating full-dome show about the IBEX probe and its bold mission to explore the solar system's final frontier. 

Show duration:  31 minutes

(Note: show presentation includes a night sky tour, so the entire program is approximately 45 minutes.)

For more information about this probe, visit http://ibex.swri.edu/

 DINOSAURS AT DUSK!

more dinosaurs

 

A whirlwind time travel adventure back to the epoch of the dinosaurs!

 

We have to tell you that we've been waiting aeons to announce that we have a full dome, computer animated dinosaurs show! A larger than life extravaganza rife with roaring monsters from the ancient age: bounding, stomping, flying, hunting, and foraging frenetically above us.

 

Well, by heavens, now we can tell the world that the dinosaurs have arrived at the Southworth Planetarium! (Or, to get the verb tense right, they WILL arrive on September 6, 2013.)

 

Dinosaurs!

 

Propel yourself back through the epochs toexplore an Earth teeming with Pteradons, Triceratrops and, of course, the ferocious -and therefore wonderfully marketable- T-Rex!

 

Sir Richard Owen*

 

And, if we can say so, this is NOT your great great great grandfather's dinosaur show with slides and lethargic Sunday afternoon nature special narration. Instead, we're embarking on a causality violating adventure through time to discover a planet dominated by the largest land animals that ever set claw to topsoil.

 

Dinosaurs

 

This September, come back to the Southworth Planetarium and then venture back to the Mesozoic era for a personal odyssey through the realm of the dinosaurs.

 

Matinee and evening shows!

September 29, 2013
3:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Southworth Planetarium
A brand new full dome computer animated show featuring a vast array of larger than life dinosaurs! A father and daughter travel through time to the epoch of the dinosaurs and learn the origins of flight.
