Sonya Renee Taylor is a renown activist, speaker, and poet. She focuses on social justice, especially within the context of body image. Her website, The Body Is Not an Apology, states the following:

“TBINAA seeks to engage people in the individual work that fosters self-love —and, just as importantly, we seek to dismantle the structural and systemic emotional, psychological, and physical violence that plays out against “different”bodies all over the planet. We believe it serves those who profit from our self-hatred to minimize its impact and to disconnect it from the larger social framework of violence and intimidation that allows oppression and injustice to thrive.”

Sonya Renee Taylor is a former national and international poetry slam champion. She was named one of Planned Parenthood’s 99 Dream Keepers in 2015 and was listed as one of 12 Women who Paved the Way for Body Positivity by Bustle Magazine.

13, Climate Emergency Campus March (11am to 12pm) @ Cornell


-Climate change is the defining issue of planet Earth, and now is the time to act.

We are educators who pledge to work with students to raise campus awareness of the risks posed by climate change. Universities have an opportunity to take the ethical lead in responding to climate emergency and the Arts can stage the declaration symbolically in the performance of a flag raising ceremony.

The Campus March for Climate Emergency at Cornell reinforces the university’s mission to educate the next generation of planetary citizens and its core value of respecting the environment. Action on climate change will require an extraordinary effort from all those concerned with climate, across all student groups on campus. The March proceeds from Rand Hall, where a “Climate Emergency”flag raising ceremony will be held, to Ho Plaza. The March is scheduled on Friday September 20 in advance of the United Nations Climate Action Summit in New York City.

The “Climate Emergency”flag visualizes the planet’s carbon budget in a series of three concentric circles, the thickness of each is proportional to CO2 emissions. The first circle indicates the 1590 gigatons of CO2 that have been released into the atmosphere from burning fossil fuels between 1850 and 2018. The second concentric circle represents the 350 gigatons of carbon dioxide allowance before the 2°C benchmark, provided the 2010 UN political agreement to limit global temperature be respected. This number corresponds to ten years of CO2 emissions at current consumption rates. The third circle represents the 2,795 gigatons of carbon dioxide from burning the fossil fuel that corporations currently hold in their reserves, and which would result in warming Earth well over 7°C.

-This race uses the Treman State Park trails and Finger Lakes Trails to show off some of the most beautiful gorges in Ithaca, NY. The marathon course consists of two identical out-and-backs of 13.1 miles each and traverses mostly single-track trails. Don’t let the fact that the race starts in a park fool you—the course includes its fair share of roots, rocks, steps, briers, steep climbs, and quad-pounding descents. Half marathoners run a single out-and-back.

The Monster Marathon and Half-Marathon features age/sex-based early starts. Men under age 38 start with the race clock, but women and older men head off early, with the individual handicaps determined by the World Masters Athletics Age-Graded Tables. The win could come down to a kick to the finish between a 65-year-old grandmother (101-minute head start) and her 40-year-old son (4-minute head start).

Further information and details are at https://fingerlakesrunners.org/race/monster-marathon-and-half-marathon-2019/

-Bring a picnic lunch and join CSI staff at Lower Buttermilk Falls State Park on September 21st for an afternoon of biomonitoring fun!

How is biomonitoring data important to regional water quality monitoring efforts and land management by agencies such as Finger Lakes State Parks? Set up your picnic blanket and enjoy a picnic by the creek while CSI staff introduce you to the fascinating world of biomonitoring and how Finger Lakes State Parks use this process to help them manage our state parks. Then anyone who’s up for it should be prepared to get their feet wet in a hands-on exploration of critters in the stream. How many different kinds of aquatic organisms can we find? We’ll also have some low-power microscopes set up to look a little closer. Those who are interested can help us collect an actual sample that will be analyzed at a later date.

To sign up, please email Biomonitoring Coordinator Adrianna at adrianna@communityscience.org by Friday evening, September 20th. Adrianna will send direction details on exactly where to meet.

2,Lecture: Intelligent Design / Creationism in the Science classroom (6pm to 7:30pm) @ Telluride House, 217 West Ave, Ithaca


-The question as to whether Intelligent Design and/or Creationism should be taught along with Evolution in the Biology classroom has been, and remains quite controversial. In order to appreciate the issues involved, we will discuss both the legal and scientific aspects of the controversy. In particular, there have been two court decisions relevant to the issue. One of these was decided by the Supreme Court in 1987, the other was decided in 2005 in Dover, Pa. We will discuss both of these in some detail. In addition, we will discuss some of the scientific issues involved and where the controversy stands today.

This talk is presented by Professor of physics, Ahren Sadoff. Ahren Sadoff received his BS in physics from MIT and his PhD in elementary particle physics from Cornell University. Ahren has been a member of the CLEO collaboration since its inception where he was a part of the CLEO-c experiment. He was also the LEPP representative to the Interactions.org collaboration; an international group of communicators representing all of the high energy particle accelerator facilities in the world. Throughout his career, he has been very concerned about the public understanding of science and the poor state of science literacy in the US. In addition to his love of science, he has had a continuing interest in the Law, especially as it pertains to the US Constitution. He finds, that in many ways, legal and scientific reasoning are similar. It is this combined interest in both of these topics that has led him to formulate his talk on Evolution and Intelligent design.
