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.

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

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.

The topic of Christianity (many religious, in fact) and the LGBTQA community can be a complicated thing.  There is, for many, a need to heal.  For others, there is a search to reconnect with faith.  For some, there is an interest in dialogue and communication.

Kenneth M. Curtis
Former Maine Governor

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.

Kenneth Curtis, Democrat, was elected Governor of Maine in 1966 and re-elected in 1970, the first governor to serve two consecutive four-year terms. While in Augusta, Curtis oversaw far-reaching changes in both public policy and governmental management, working successfully with a Republican legislature throughout. Among his achievements were creation of a cabinet system within the state executive branch, Maine’s present-day income tax, and many education, human service, and environmental advances.


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?

National Coming Out Day is an internationally recognized civil rights awareness day, where members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community are encouraged to celebrate "coming out" about their sexual orientation and gender identity.

It is important to remember that coming out is a deeply personal process, and there is no singular, "right" way to do it.  There are many developmental and safety reasons why an individual may not come out.

The topic of Christianity (many religious, in fact) and the LGBTQA community can be a complicated thing.  There is, for many, a need to heal.  For others, there is a search to reconnect with faith.  For some, there is an interest in dialogue and communication.

Join in our weekly conversation with the Rev. Rus Willette, advisor to the Christian Navigators student organization to explore these topics and more.

Elizabeth (Libby) Mitchell
Former Maine Senate President and
House Speaker

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.

Having been elected many times to both the Maine House of Representatives and Maine Senate, Libby Mitchell is the first woman in U.S. history to have held both a House Speakership and Senate Presidency. While in state legislature, Mitchell was a tireless advocate for job creation, access to health care, and energy sustainability. As a former teacher, she championed laws to improve Maine’s public education system and sponsored first-in-the-nation legislation to use state funding to expand the federal Head Start program. Among many commitments as a life-long public servant, Mitchell has served as Director of the Maine Housing Authority, on the New England Board of Higher Education, and as chair of Federal Home Loan Bank Board.


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?

The events will be held in Portland Public Library’s open, glass-walled atrium that faces Monument Square in Portland and will offer light refreshments in an informal, casual atmosphere.

Virginia HudakThe USM School of Music presents Virginia Hudak, soprano, in her senior recital. A music education major, she is a voice student of Bruce Fithian and Edward Reichert.

Virginia started singing in seventh grade, inspired by her grandmother. Her first experience was as a baritone in the middle school choir (there were no males in the choir). She sang alto in the high school choir for two years until her teacher asked her to switch to soprano. She's been a soprano ever since. She credits her high school band and choir directors at Thornton Academy for encouraging her to study music. Virginia's plans for the future are to perform for a while before going into teaching, and then eventually go to grad school for music therapy.

At USM, Virginia has performed with the University Chamber Singers, the USM Concert Band and Wind Ensemble (clarinet), and the USM Vocal Jazz Ensemble. She played auxiliary percussion in the pit orchestra in Straus' Die Fledermaus, and sang in the chorus in PORTopera's Madam Butterfly, and this past summer at the Arundel Barn Playhouse in their productions of Chicago, Shrek the Musical, and All Shook Up. Virginia's senior recital program will demonstrate her versatility with a range of songs from early music to contemporary musical theatre. 

 

Student recitals are free and open to the public. They are subject to change without notice, so feel free to call the Music Box Office for confirmation before coming.

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.

A female astronomer, an opera singer, and a teen foreign-language learner cooped up in a small New York apartment search for words – to express their yearnings, frustrations and, ultimately, their love.   When the pressure gets too high, they explode.  What bonds hold us together as lovers, family, and friends?  Humans have always looked for answers in the Night Sky!

People of a Feather

Monday, Oct. 14th, 7:00PM., Lee Auditorium, room 133, Wishcamper Center

Admission is FREE

Sponsored by Biodiversity Research Institute:  http://www.briloon.org/

Featuring groundbreaking footage from seven winters in the Arctic, People of a Feather takes you through time into the world of Inuit on the Belcher Islands in Hudson Bay. Connecting past present and future is a unique cultural relationship with the eider duck. Eider down, the warmest feather in the world, allows both Inuit and bird to survive harsh Arctic winters. Recreations of traditional life are juxtaposed with modern life in Sanikiluaq, as both people and eiders face the challenges posed by changing sea ice and ocean currents disrupted by the massive hydroelectric dams powering eastern North America. The eyes of a remote subsistence culture challenge the world to find energy solutions that work with the seasons of our hydrological cycle.

LD 1422 requires that all high school students graduating in 2018 will earn adiploma diploma based on proficiency instead of credits. High school administrators and teachers, district by district, are grappling with the many challenges this requirement presents.

Hosted by the USM School of Education and Human Development Advisory Council, the two hour program features a panel discussion where teams of high school staff will be introduced to resources and action strategies they can use in this important work. USM and representatives from a number of education organizations will participate in this panel discussion.

Panel to include:

  • Glenn Cummings, Moderator, USM
  • Jeanne Crocker, Maine Principals’ Association
  • Diana Doiron, Maine Department of Education
  • David Ruff, Great Schools Partnership

In addition, the USM Professional Development Center will share opportunities for individual districts to join learning communities organized to support these efforts. Contact hours are available.

*Net proceeds benefit the endowed USM School of Education and Human Development Community Scholarship Fund for student scholarships.

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.

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.

Angus King

Angus King
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.

Angus King, Independent, was elected to the U.S. Senate by a wide margin in 2012. He earlier served two terms as Governor of Maine (1995-2003). An attorney, King was a public broadcaster and successful business executive before seeking public office. In his career, King has worked in particular on issues related to economic development, technology, and the environment. He has regularly sought to frame bi-partisan solutions to policy problems.


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?

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.

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.

Peter Mills
Former Maine Legislator

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.

Peter Mills, Republican, served in the Maine Legislature from 1994 to 2010, acting as the Republican leader on the Tax, Labor, Judiciary, Appropriations, Education, and Health & Human Services Committees. He has been outspoken advocate for change in our tax and school funding systems, and has worked across the aisle to pass bipartisan reforms in health care and education. Since 2011, Mills has served as the Executive Director of the Maine Turnpike Authority, having been nominated to the post by Governor Paul LePage.  


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?

"Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead"

"When CB's dog dies from rabies, CB begins to question the existence of an afterlife. His best friend is too burnt out to provide any coherent speculation; his sister has gone goth; his ex-girlfriend has recently been institutionalized; and his other friends are too inebriated to give him any sort of solace. But a chance meeting with an artistic kid, the target of this group's bullying, offers CB a peace of mind and sets in motion a friendship that will push teen angst to the very limits. Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen violence, rebellion and sexual identity collide and careen toward an ending that's both haunting and hopeful."

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.

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.

USM English Department Faculty Lecture Series - 10/30/13

Sponsored by the Department of English, Professor Eve Raimon will speak about New England's African-American memorials and the paradox that even as African American public recovery projects rightfully seek to extol black achievements, these memorials often elide other more discomfiting parts of our shared American past.

Student Testimonial:

"Three concepts embody my experience as a member of the 2013 Jackson Laboratory Summer Student Program: direction, preparedness, and inspiration.  Daily exposure to a diverse collection of research fields allowed me to confidently solidify my own career and educational directions.  One-on-one instruction, support, and guidance from my mentor [Dr. Jennifer Trowbridge] and her laboratory team prepared me far beyond any textbook or lecture for the trials and triumphs of a career in biomedical research.  Complete immersion in the world of research problems, discoveries, and the underlying human compassion that drives today's leading researchers have inspired anew my desire to create a place for myself among these individuals. In short, my time at the Jackson Laboratory has helped me to take the first great steps from student to scientist."  Jennifer Ditano, USM Student

The topic of Christianity (many religious, in fact) and the LGBTQA community can be a complicated thing.  There is, for many, a need to heal.  For others, there is a search to reconnect with faith.  For some, there is an interest in dialogue and communication.

Join in our weekly conversation with the Rev. Rus Willette, advisor to the Christian Navigators student organization to explore these topics and more.

Barney Frank
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.

Barney Frank, Democrat, served as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Massachusetts from 1981 to 2013. A leading figure and noted orator in the Congress, Frank chaired the House Financial Services Committee where he co-authored the 2010 Dodd/Frank Act, mandating the most extensive reforms in the banking and financial services industry since the Great Depression, and creating the new Consumer Financial Protection Agency.


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?
