Screening of Lucy Walker's award winning film "The Lion's Mouth Opens."
Sarah Diesburg, computer science, will present "Ghosts of Past Data: Challenges and Advances in Secure Deletion of Files."
Secure deletion is the act of completely removing file data from electronic storage so that it cannot be recovered. This lecture will briefly outline why this is so challenging today and introduces TrueErase, my backwards-compatible secure-deletion framework. Bring your lunch; cookies will be provided.
See the best work from the Electronic Media Program and celebrate the accomplishments of the senior class. Short films, television news, documentaries and NAB videos will be shown throughout Lang Hall from 3:30-6:30 p.m.; the senior celebration and awards ceremony will be from 6:30-8 p.m.
Bitingly revelant and sprinkled with sass, "Bring It On: The Musical" takes you on a high-flying journey through friendship, forgiveness and determination direct from a run on Broadway.
James Walters, Department of Earth Science, will discuss his research on "Reconstructing Northeast Iowa's Periglacial Environment."
During late Pleistocene time, the landform region known as the Iowan Surface of Northeast Iowa, situated between the Des Moines Lobe glacial ice to the west and the Lake Michigan glacial lobe to the east, experienced a periglacial environment. The characteristics of this former environment are not well known, but the presence of features known as “ice-wedge casts” indicates that permanently frozen ground (permafrost) was present. The actual timing of this event is also not well known, but recent optically stimulated luminescence dating of sands from sand stringers overlying the pre-Illinoian till suggests that these events were taking place between about 24,000 and 16,500 years ago.
For the last several years, Walters has investigated the relict periglacial features of the Iowan Surface in an attempt to reconstruct the severity, timing and other characteristics of this environment.
Guest artist Karel Keldermans, carillonneur, will perform at noon at the Campanile on the UNI Campus. Bring your lunch and join us outside for a one of a kind musical experience! This event is free and open to the public.
