"Vicki Klein has provided beyond stellar service to Development and Alumni Relations. She is extremely responsive and goes above and beyond to assist us. We are very lucky to have a representative such as Vicki who always goes the 'extra mile' in handling all of our payroll needs!"
Congratulations to Michael Devirian ’66, recipient of the 2014 Distinguished Alumnus Award, by the UCR Alumni Association. This former ASUCR President went on to pursue an extraordinary career at JPL and NASA, including working as Mission Control for the Mars Mariner and Lunar Lander Missions from 1966–70. He was also the operations manager for the Hubble Space Telescope and Camera Installation.
For twenty-eight years, the UCR Alumni Association has honored graduates who personify the University’s tradition of excellence and service. Through their personal and professional achievements, these individuals bring distinction to UCR, contribute to the betterment of society and enhance their communities.
Please note that ticket allocation is based upon the actual number of students participating in the ceremony, capacity of the venue, and reasons for need. Your graduation from UC Davis is a major milestone in your life, and we wish that we could issue an unlimited amount of tickets for your loved ones. However, we must accommodate some guests for all of our students. Should extra tickets become available, information will be updated.
We received an email from Graham in England, who has been using extra virgin olive oil to help heal his ulcerative colitis. He takes it on an empty stomach, 3 times a day. And it is very important that you use a clean and potent brand of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO). I wanted to let you , along with complete dosing instructions, in case you would like to try it.
The 2014 Best Paper Award has been awarded to Assistant Prof. Nathaniel Gabor at the SPIE Optics + Photonics: Carbon Nanotubes, Graphene, and Associated Devices in August for his research on graphene optoelectronics. The presentation described his recent work on atomically thin optoelectronics incorporating graphene. Graphene, an atomically thin sheet of hexagonally oriented carbon, is a zero band gap conductor (semi-metal) that exhibits extraordinary electronic behavior and broadband optical absorption. Hexagonal boron nitride, which shares a similar structure to that of graphene, is a highly insulating electronic material that does not absorb any light in the visible spectrum. By combining graphene and boron nitride into ultrathin vertical stacks, Gabor demonstrated the fabrication of novel optoelectronic devices that exhibit highly sensitive optical response, yet are only as thick as the width of a DNA molecule.
Watch the short video here of them discussing their research on CMS that could lead ultimately to discoveries that can help answer questions such as: Are there undiscovered principles of nature? What is the origin of mass? Do extra dimensions exist? What is dark matter? How can we solve the mystery of dark energy? And how did the universe come to be?
But look closely, and you'll see that four of the five brands with all-passing extra virgin grades were from California (notably -- or not -- two of the California olive oil companies on the list, along with the , a trade organization dedicated to promoting locally produced oils, provided financial support for the study). But one Italian import, Kirkland Organic, did quietly infiltrate the ranks of the California extra-virgin elite.
CMS research has already led to the discovery of the earlier this year, and in the future may lead to future evidence for supersymmetry, heavy neutrinos, and extra-spatial dimensions. The CMS pixel detector is essential for such research.
If you've been following on the imported Italian olive oils that a recent U.C. Davis report claims are falsely advertised as extra virgin (in a nutshell, pretty much all staple supermarket brands, though there is ), you're likely already a few pennies closer to saving $45 for a 500 ml bottle of , hands down the best grassy Tuscan olive oil we've tasted lately. Or you could go with a bottle from one of the California producers on the U.C. Davis report, like the $20 (375 ml) or the $28 (500 ml) . Regardless, the study seems to indicate that if you want to know your dollars are truly going to honest extra virgins, you've got to shell out the big bucks.
If you did not achieve enough credits you can take introductory courses in specifc subjects to start with (eg, , and ). You could then take the Intermediate Year courses in Semester 2 and over summer, or do an extra year of study.
