NASA Lands in Oakland!

New Partnership with Chabot Space & Science Center Will Create NASA Learning Opportunities in the East Bay

A new partnership between NASA’s Ames Research Center in California’s Silicon Valley and Chabot Space & Science Center in Oakland, California, is now underway. Anchoring the partnership, a new visitor center for Ames will provide an immersive, dynamic STEAM environment called “The NASA Experience,” opening at Chabot in November 2021.

Under the terms of a 5-year Space Act Agreement, the organizations are beginning a long-term collaboration to create accessible STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) community engagement and education opportunities in Oakland and beyond.

“We’ve long collaborated with Chabot for community engagement activities and are delighted to take this next and more formal step to bring a deeper NASA experience into our surrounding communities,” said Eugene Tu, director of Ames. “It’s one of NASA’s founding functions to share our work as widely as possible, and partnering with Chabot will allow us to reach more broadly than we’d ever be able to do with our existing resources and location in the South Bay.”

Under the formal agreement, NASA and Chabot have identified three main areas for immediate collaboration that leverage the strengths of NASA’s research and Chabot’s long-standing programs.

First, The NASA Experience creates an immersive, dynamic, STEAM learning environment that puts the visitor into the role of a NASA researcher. Hands-on STEAM studios highlight the current science at NASA through interactive challenges, models, artifacts, and more. The visitor center brings to life the thrilling, challenging, and inspiring process of scientific discovery by showcasing the real stories and people at NASA’s Ames Research Center.

“We are so excited to share the fascinating science, extraordinary people and groundbreaking research of NASA’s Ames Research Center right here in Oakland,” said Adam Tobin, Executive Director at Chabot Space & Science Center, “Bringing together NASA Ames’ long legacy of innovation and Chabot’s 137-year history in STEM education creates a powerful opportunity to inspire the next generation of future scientists, engineers and astronomers.”

Leading up to the November opening, Chabot and Ames will provide engaging virtual programs hosted on Chabot Space & Science Center’s Facebook and YouTube platforms to offer participants a closer look at NASA’s mission.

Second, the two groups will create an interconnected network of STEAM education experiences throughout the city that deepens Chabot’s existing “Learning Everywhere” initiative. Building on existing connections with Oakland’s schools, libraries, and local organizations, this partnership will create programs that engage learners in current NASA research.

Third, the partnership will create tangible STEAM career pathways by developing explicit connections between NASA’s career opportunities and Chabot’s youth development programs. NASA will provide speakers, fieldtrips, and independent study on the missions and technology associated with work happening at NASA Ames in collaboration with Chabot’s Galaxy Explorers program, first established in 2000.

Chabot Space & Science Center is a non-profit institution, community resource, and hub for interactive STEAM engagement in Oakland. Founded in 1883, Chabot’s mission is to inspire and educate learners of all ages about the universe and planet Earth.

NASA’s Ames Research Center, one of 10 NASA field centers across the country, is located in the heart of California’s Silicon Valley. Since 1939, Ames has led NASA in conducting world-class research and development in aeronautics, exploration technology, and science aligned with the center’s core capabilities.

Mandatory Face Mask Policies Associated with Reduced COVID-19 Deaths

Study findings state that statewide mandatory face mask policies reduced COVID-19 deaths

Statewide policy on face mask use reduces case fatality rate, new research suggests.

Researchers at the UNC Charlotte, Department of Public Health Sciences examined the COVID-19 incidence and mortality data in the 3,102 counties across the U.S using data from the John Hopkins University and Kaiser Family Foundation. They found that early adoption of state-directed mandatory face mask policies was associated with a 10% reduced mortality risk ratio across all counties and a 5% reduced mortality risk ratio among urban counties.

At the end of August 2020, 3,079 US counties reported at least one confirmed case of COVID-19, and about two-thirds of all U.S. counties had a state policy on mandatory face mask use. According to the study, it took an average of 62 days from the first reported case in the U.S. for COVID-19 to spread to the 3,079 counties. However, it took an average of 101 days from the first reported case in the U.S. for the counties to have a statewide policy on face mask use.

“As of August 31, 2020, the median county-level case fatality rate was 1.54%. Among the 2,009 counties with a statewide policy on face mask use, the median case fatality rate was 0.81%”, Oluwaseun Adeyemi, a public health sciences doctoral candidate and one of the study authors, writes.

But it was not only the reduced case fatality rate among the counties with a statewide policy on a face mask that was intriguing. Counties whose statewide policy on face mask use came before the 62-day mark had a reduced mortality rate ratio compared to other counties that instituted the statewide policies after the 62-day mark. Adeyemi stated that “early adoption of face mask policy was associated with a 10% reduced mortality risk compared to counties with late adoption of statewide face mask use policy”.

The authors selected the death counts a week before and three weeks after the statewide policy on face mask use. For counties without a statewide policy on face mask use, death counts corresponding to dates of an adjacent state with a mandatory face mask policy were selected. The case fatality rate was measured as the proportion of deaths in a county divided by the number of confirmed cases. The authors will be presenting these results at the Society of Behavioral Medicine’s (SBM’s) 42nd Annual Meeting & Scientific Sessions on April 12, 2021.

6 Reasons Why You Should Choose an SUV for Your Family

Jeep

If you’re looking to get a new car one of the best options is to buy an SUV. An SUV is a good choice especially if you have a large family or if you just had a new baby. 

Many people are hopping on this trend of getting an SUV as their family car for many reasons. Maybe you have been wondering the top reasons why people are getting SUVs and if you should get one as well. 

Here is a look at some of the major reasons why you should consider buying an SUV for your family.

Get an Upgrade

One of the best reasons to buy an SUV is simply because you have a new member of the family. A new addition to the family often means that you will need a bigger and safer ride.

A new car means fewer breakdowns and unexpected mechanical surprises. New cars will also have roadside assistance for a significant amount of time after you have bought the car.

The bottom line is when your family starts expanding you are likely to need a bigger car and an SUV provides all the space you need and safety as well. 

You can spruce up your SUV by finding out where there are private number plates for sale and buy one. A customized number plate, with your family name, is a great way to personalize your car.

View the Road

Getting a good view of the road is essential to your safety and that of other drivers on the road. The wide-angle view of the road that you get from an SUV is one of their major reasons why they are so popular with many parents. 

However, a good view of the road is not the only reason why these new vehicles are so popular with parents. The higher height means that it is a lot easier to get the kids to go in and out of the back of the car.

If you have a baby the height helps to make putting in the baby’s car seat a lot easier. This means there will be less stress on your back.

High Safety Ratings

The SUVs on the market today have some of the highest safety ratings in history. This makes them an attractive option for your family. As a parent, you want to ensure that your family is getting the safest ride possible. 

With so many SUVs on the market getting 5-star ratings for safety, choosing the right one for your family will come down to how much money you can spend and your personal taste. 

Tow Some Weight

If you have been thinking about buying a trailer, so you can take family road trips and go camping an SUV is a perfect car for towing heavy objects like this.

Additionally, if you plan to buy a boat having an SUV to tow it when you need to bring it from one place to the next is one of the great benefits of having this kind of vehicle.

Fuel Economy

When you are raising a family especially a large one saving your pennies is very important. One of the reasons people did not like to buy an SUV in the past is that they were known to use a lot of petrol.

However, the newer SUVs that are currently on the market are known for using fluid efficiently. This means that you will get to enjoy all the benefits of having an SUV without having to pay exorbitant sums to keep it on the road.

Cargo Capacity

The cargo capacity of an SUV is one of the main reasons why it is such a great family car. When you have to shuttle your kids from swimming, to soccer, or dance the cargo space comes in handy for storing their gear.

Large cargo space also means that your pets will have more room should you decide to bring them along on any of your excursions. An SUV also makes it easier for you to take road trips because you have a huge cargo in which to put all your gear.

Ride In Style

With a brand new SUV for your family, you will be living your best life. A comfortable ride to your destination whenever possible while not spending exorbitant sums on fuel is perfect for any family. 

You can take your family on road-tripping adventures and enjoy the extra height of the vehicle. It is easy to see why SUVs have become so popular with many families.

Safe/Haven: Gay Life in 1950s Cherry Grove

COMING SOON: May 14 – October 11, 2021

During weekends and summers in the pre-Stonewall era, gay men and women, including many New Yorkers, traveled to the secluded beach town of Cherry Grove on Fire Island where they found opportunities for self-expression—behavior that was both stigmatized and criminalized in the straight world. These visitors took pleasure in the costumed parties, theatrical events, and liberated atmosphere that this sanctuary provided. On view outdoors in New-York Historical’s rear courtyard, this exhibition explores the gay and lesbian community that flourished during the 1950s in Cherry Grove through some 70 enlarged photographs and additional ephemera from the unique holdings of the Cherry Grove Archives Collection.

Cover Story: Katharine Graham, CEO

COMING SOON: May 21 – October 3, 2021

Native New Yorker Katharine Meyer Graham (1917-2001) never expected to become the president, publisher, and CEO of the Washington Post, but she thrived in that position—and even helped end a war and a corrupt U.S. presidency by revealing the Pentagon Papers and Watergate to an outraged public. On display in the Joyce B. Cowin Women’s History Gallery, this exhibition examines a transformative period in Graham’s life, as her devotion to the Post helped her grow from a self-effacing widow into an authoritative, decisive media executive. It was this new Katharine Graham whom Truman Capote honored with a spectacular Black and White masquerade ball at the Plaza Hotel in 1966. Graham’s evening gown and mask, Capote’s tuxedo, and designer gowns worn by famous guests bring the “Party of the Century” to life and illustrate how Graham’s contact with new networks of power and celebrity helped consolidate her influence in journalism.

Ways To Rock The Two Piece Dresses Trend Your Spring Style

hot dress

We are falling in love with the latest two piece dresses trend. It is one of those favorite trends that never gets boring. Two piece dresses are available in endless options and various combinations. Meaning there’s a great scope of looking stylish and chic all year long. The best part about two piece dresses is that you can either wear them in pairs or mix and match the pieces to have a chic look. We have listed down some amazing ways to slay any two piece look. 

Rely on the prints

Printed two piece dresses are one of the versatile choices to wear this season. You can pull off the spring season in printed sets because they are classy and look like a spring dream. Wear a set together or combine the different pieces to achieve a surprising two piece cocktail dress look. Prints have never disappointed us, and they have been a versatile choice for a long time. If you are looking for a fresh and vibrant look, prints are for you. 

Highlight the curves

When two piece dresses started coming out in the fashion industry, we saw popular celebrities like Kim Kardashian wearing them. The two piece body hugging dress was more of a sexy outfit suitable for clubbing attire. Two piece bandage dresses fit your body the right way and highlight the curves. Wear these dresses with high heels in summer or with thigh high boots in winter. This style is ideal for a two piece party dress. 

The Boho Way

As soon as we got introduced to two piece dresses, the boho look took it all over the marketplace. The boho prints are most commonly floral or ethnic. These prints give an extra trendy look if you pick off the shoulder detail! 

The length of the skirt is additionally an absolute necessity: it must be maxi to finish the entire boho look. Your most prominent partners are level shoes, regardless of whether they’re laced up, gladiators, or with ethnic subtleties, for example, mini pompoms. Or, on the other hand, consider Coachella and throw on some studded lower leg boots and chokers. In case you’re going to take a beachy look, prefer to add colorful sunglasses without much thinking and a cool hat. It will give you the right two piece wedding dress look for one of those extravagant, beachy weddings. 

Be sure of the two piece dresses for whatever occasion you attend. It only depends on the style you pick according to the event. The stores even have two piece prom dresses and two piece gowns suitable for your formal parties. Take out that fashionista inside you and run the world! 

 

How Our Government Really Works—What Every Teenager Should Know

After such a wild election season, kids and teens might find themselves more interested or curious in politics. And if so- good on them. Let them read all they can, and not just about one side of things. Forming well read and  properly researched opinions will only make them better, smarter, and more empathetic people.

One book that has recently come out is a book that describes itself as “compelling, bipartisan insights about our country’s democracy. You Call This Democracy? How to Fix Our Government and Deliver Power to the People from author, speaker and public policy expert Elizabeth Rusch examines in simple terms our democracy’s missteps and how we can work together to create “a more perfect union.”

Some of the topics discussed are-

1. Why the race for president might distract us from the most important story of this election — ballot measures that affect our democracy

2. How COVID provides a surprising opportunity to finally do something about this country’s abysmal voter turnout

3. Important election topics people can discuss with family, friends and colleagues without starting a partisan brawl

4. What every American needs to know about how elections are run in their state

How Our Government Really Works—What Every Teenager Should Know

Whether you’re a student, parent, educator or engaged citizen seeking the truth, You Call This Democracy? How to Fix Our Government and Deliver Power to the People from public policy expert Elizabeth Rusch paves the way for every citizen to not only understand the flaws in our current democracy but to also fix them.

“We think we live in a democracy. One person, one vote. But how democratic is our government really?” Rusch asks. “The hard truth is that political power is not shared equally among all citizens. It shouldn’t matter if you are rich, poor, urban, rural, Democrat, Republican, old or young when you mark your ballot. Your race and gender shouldn’t matter either. But they all do.”

You Call This Democracy? gives an honest view of how our democracy truly functionswho really has the power and why (and how that power impacts politicians and policies) and how we can work together to make our democracy more responsive to the will of the people.

Consider the following:

1. Presidents can take office without winning the popular vote. 

2. Voting districts are drawn by politicians for their own benefit.

3. Millions of citizens—young, old, poor, people of color, women—are blocked from voting.

4. Money wields much more influence than the wishes of ordinary Americans.

You Call This Democracy? offers insightful solutions to undemocratic elements plaguing our government, with inspirational examples of citizens already working to make change. International comparisons, extensive sources and resources prompt readers to dig deeper ― and take action.

Supplementary materials to the book include Rusch’s “50 State Democracy Report Card” (https://www.youcallthis.com/your-state), where people can check to see how democracy fares in their state overall and on specific metrics, and how they can strengthen democracy in their state; and a series of short, fun, informative videos on the issues covered in the book, called Flash Course on Democracy, available free at: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLUOGZlteO6dRY7aQV1uqpddW1C1maGLxP.

Additionally, discussion guides and debate questions are available at www.youcallthis.com.
