    Hi, all – I have heard back from the Archaeologists for Autism group. Would anyone be interested in spearheading an exhibitor table there for VP and VP related activities? Here are the details I got from Tom:

    When: November 16th 2019; 9:30 – 3:00 pm

    Where: Historic Sams House at the Pine Island Conservation Area, 6195  North Tropical Trail, Merritt Island, Brevard County, Fl [outdoors]

    Who: 300-400 individuals many falling on the autism spectrum but also with accompanying family and friends.

    They provide snacks, drinks, and lunch. They would also be interested in some fossils for the dig pit and he mentioned he usually coordinates with Richard for this but would be thankful if we could help with that.

    They also request a $35 fee for the table and chairs set up or a donation to the silent auction of an equivalent value.

    Here is Tom’s email: [email protected] if you are going to take charge let me know otherwise I can tell him we are no longer able to attend as I will not be able to coordinate this event.

    Please plan to attend this evening’s event at First Mag and tomorrow’s panel about Red Tide at 3 pm. Announcements have gone out with the details. Each of these will be fun and informative! Thanks–Bruce

    Hi, all –

    I’m the VP of the SE section of NAGT and there is an upcoming award nomination deadline for an Outstanding Earth Science Teacher: https://nagt.org/nagt/awards/oest-nom.html

    There is a brief application to fill out but we need some nominations from Florida – there are currently only 2 in for our entire section and they are from Mississippi. I am happy to help write up responses but don’t know any FL teachers intimately. I am going to make up a post for the SE NAGT Facebook page today so I can share it into FAST and teacher groups on FB but please please consider nominating someone you have worked with. Our deadline is May 1st (short deadline, I know).

    We will meet tomorrow, regular time and place. This is the last official meeting for the semester. I’m interested in last week’s week class (web site), everyone’s summer plans, etc. Adania’s students are welcome, as below.

    • I may be a little late as I will be returning from a field trip to the bat cave with one of the physical geology labs at 11:30 am.

    Hey Guys,

    Just checking that we are meeting on Wednesday? The two students I am mentoring for Adania’s class would like to join us for our lab meeting as both a part of their classroom assignments, but also to join in on any discussion. Just making sure we do have a meeting scheduled for this week.

     

    Thanks!

    Hey guys, for those of you interested in upgrading the website. The prices including URL and HOSTING are: $5/mo, $60/1 year or $108/2 years. This is for the personal site, which lets you have .com and .org, etc. There is a cheaper version, but the extension of your URL will be .blog. However, that is the only difference and you get the same features and server space for both.

    Anyhow, I am available to help any of you individually or a small group since we didn’t have enough time yesterday to get through the basics.

    Thanks @cgrant. I was sent a Zoom link from @jeanette-pirlo. I will join the meeting via the link. Thanks @jbauer for your ppt!

    Hello, here’s a link to the initial instructions for the website set up:

    If you need help before class, come by my office tomorrow or Wednesday morning.

    @adania-flemming Besides Skype, I don’t know of other way to participate remotely. My Skype is bughunter1, we can certainly try that.

    This Wednesday’s class will be led by Claudia–on developing your personal/professional web sites. Please come ready to work with your computers.  I will be in Raleigh NC on a tour of the museum there (for the TESI planning), and now it turns out I will likely not be available for SKYPE. Jeanette will have the key to the room.

    • @cgrant can you still provide an option to join the class remotely? I have a virus and think it is best not to get others sick. However, I would still like to get the information from the session. Also, you noted you would send us some information to allow us to prep for the session, looking forward to it? Thanks!

    Hi, all – I received these images in an email this morning along with this text: The attached pictures are of an item we found at an estate sale. The previous auctioneer stated that it was donated by a museum near the Bok tower for an auction. The tag found with this fossil just had a note that it was between 6000-9000 years old.  No other information.Dr. Farke commented, ‘If the fossil was found in Florida, it might be one of the Ice Age mammal bones that pops up fairly frequently in some rivers in the state.’ He also commented that , ‘it looks like it might be the head of a femur (thigh bone)’ There isn’t really a scale but any ideas? I agree with most of what Andy said but I don’t have the expertise to identify it further. @jeanette-pirlo@smoran@bmacfadden

    Hello all!I just wanted to follow up about the Water is Life Conference I mentioned on Wednesday. Here are some details: https://www.saintstephens.org/wp2/saint-stephens-hosts-international-conference-in-2020/ I would love to connect someone from the Thompson Institute to the Saint Stephen’s conference coordinator (who was also my middle school science teacher).. Would anyone be willing/interested in being the TIES contact person?  Maybe @jbauer or @bmacfadden? Thank you!

    Meeting regular time today. Catch-up unless someone has something planned. Bruce

    What would it take for an avalanche of people testing the new eMuseum, soon? (see above, very exciting)?

    If you are interested in phylogenetic methods at all, Tracy Heath will be in town and there will be two opportunities to learn from her this week:

    Tracy Heath (http://phyloworks.org/) is giving the FLMNH seminar this Friday and we thought there would be an interest in a RevBayes discussion, so there will be one this Thursday 4 -5:30 in the Dickinson Hall seminar room (371). She will give a talk explaining what RevBayes is and how to use it. We will then open the floor for an open discussion if you’d like to ask her any questions about the software.

    Also,  I realize I missed the building a website day – I do have a presentation made on how to get that started, apologies – my March was really busy. I won’t be available tomorrow as my mom is in town but can do it next week if people are interested.

    I’m out sick today but can people please sign up for next monday’s Matrix sorting at Ginny Switt’s science classes at Oak Hall? Ginny is providing lunch for people that are present all day.  I will send out a sign up throw email to get a list of people and times. I believe we need to be there by 8a until about 3p. I plan on being there all day.  We’ll be working with groups of 18 students at a time. Thanks!

    @mackenzie-smith and @maryjane-hughes are interested in participating in the practice session next week. Lab group meets 11:45-12:35 in Carr 521.

    I don’t know if you guys have discussed this or not, but the attached flyer about a STEM fair organized by Alachua County schools landed in my inbox (as a parent). Although is too late to participate with a Museum pop-up, this might be something we want to keep on our radar.

    I have a friend, Catherine Early, that will be joining the oVert team as a postdoc once she graduates this May. She is on the hunt for housing in Gainesville so if you all have a good landlord/landlady or hear anything from reputable sources- please let me know!
