@ VOL 31
ON SEP 07, 2016
"How many gems of scientific discovery are out there, published in articles, that we don’t know about?"
One of the goals of scientific research should be the improvement of the human reality. But have we created a world in which the journey from discovery to society is so exhausting that it deters academics from embarking on it? And if so, can we do something about it?
In "From Science to Society: A Field full of Landmines" from PechaKucha Night Maastricht Vol. 31, Bart Knols idiscusses how scientists need to better communicate with those who are outside their field in order to contribute to society's development.

"We want to 'whale-cast', we want to predict where they're at...so we can manage human use of the ocean to minimize impact on endangered species." Ben Best is an analyst for the Ocean Health Index, a research project housed at UCSB's downtown ecology center. For him, the ocean has long been a source of spiritual sustenance, vigorous play, wondrous discovery, and intellectual curiosity.

Documenting Sunken Ship Sites
"I do exploration and documentation of shipwrecks and sunken aircrafts"In Documenting Sunken Ship Sites from Jackson, MS, Vol. 7 Kelly Gleason, PHD, an underwater archaeologist for NOAA in Honolulu, HI, describes how artefacts become historical record which in turn can create connection with our stories and civilisation as a whole. One shipwreck discovery, the Two Brothers, is significant because it tells more of the story that inspired the novel, Moby Dick. She indeed shows us how all of these discoveries coming from a remote reef in the northwest Hawaiian islands do have significance to us all.Enjoy

Volume 19 Presenters Announced
Spam, aerial acrobatics and the Gallatin Roller Girlz take center stage at the Ellen for PK Night Spam—both the Internet and meat kinds--gravity-defying acrobatics, and those rough, tough roller girlz will take center stage at the Ellen Theatre for the 19th PechaKucha Night Tuesday, April 19 and Wednesday, April 20.

More information is available on Facebook at pecha-kucha-bozeman or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org You are encouraged to come early to socialize. There will be a 20-minute intermission. Advance tickets ($7 plus $1 restoration fee) are available online at theellentheatre.com . Tickets also are available at the box office and at the door for $8 ($5 for students) space permitting.

Ignite Wild Idea about Research
When we are bogged down in our daily work of taking or teaching classes, in the weeds of doing research, writing, marking, sitting in meetings, reading emails….it is easy to lose sight about what excites us about learning and discovery. Do you have budding ideas for research, projects you would love to do, new, perhaps even wild, ideas you would like to ignite—suspending concerns of time and resources? As students and faculty together here at Acadia University, how often do we get a chance, or take the time, to tell other people about the things we are passionate about? We are carving out some time to do just that on campus February 15 at the Axe Lounge (6-7:30). Be a Pecha Kucha storyteller, and share your Wild Ideas About Research with your Acadia community, or just come out and listen, celebrate passion for learning, have some pizza brought to you by Research and Graduate Studies, and if you want, toast a beer. Interested in presenting or need more information about Pecha Kuckas as a storytelling format? Tips for presenting? The PK team is here to help.

Watch this space: christchurch street art
"The city landscape is constantly changing... it's impossible for one person to do it alone." In Watch this Space: Christchurch Street Art at PechaKucha Night Vol. 29, Lindsay Chan shares her discovery of numerous murals popping up around the city of Christchurch, New Zealand. In response to the recent natural disaster, many local artists have taken to the streets to create a lively atmosphere through adversity and art. Lindsay hopes that the creation of an app will bring her community together one mural at a time. For more details, visit: http://christchurchstreetart.co.nz/
In this presentation Lizzy Karp and Ken Tsui explain how their creative studio, Here There, is inspired by challenging the expectations of an activation and an experience. With a process that often feels like an exploratory mission in the deepest reaches of space, they describe how their goal is to share the feeling of discovery and inspire a more interesting culture within the city.
