Folding Your Tie into Thirds
C109, Brumbaugh Academic Center

Joie Escuadro, instructor of mathematics
In packing your tie, folding it into halves will be too long to fit in your luggage and folding it into quarters will create a crease when you put it on. Is there a way, without actually measuring, to fold your tie exactly into thirds? We will look at one technique, examine why it works and modify the technique to fold the tie into any fractional segment, like 5/32. This class will use very simple arithmetic usually learned in third grade.

Inspiring Citizenship through Community Engagement

Sarah Worley, Ph.D., associate professor of communication, director of community engaged teaching and learning; Deborah Roney, Ph.D., assistant professor of English, director of Language in Motion
At Juniata, we have a strong history of community engagement that is now intentionally incorporated into our new General Education requirements. Experiential learning of this type inspires citizenship and prepares students for personal and professional growth. We will offer an overview of current thinking about and examples of community-engaged learning and invite participants to share their perspectives and experiences.

What’s to Become of American Healthcare?
Alumni Hall, Brumbaugh Academic Center

John E. Neely '69, M.D., professor of pediatrics and humanities, certified functional medicine practitioner, Penn State College of Medicine
On one hand, we have one of the most advanced systems of medical care in the world.  And yet, our statistics on health and longevity lag behind any other industrialized country at twice the cost.  This is not sustainable and it threatens our healthcare system, including Medicare.  We will explore how we got here, what some barriers are to our thinking about medicine, and a new model for extending good health through life, not just extending life expectancy.

Drinking Water since the Safe Drinking Water Act
401, Founders Hall

Ursula Williams, Ph.D., assistant professor of chemistry and biochemistry
The vast majority of Americans enjoy access to high quality drinking water due, in large part, to legislation including the Safe Drinking Water Act of 1974; yet the media attention garnered by the 2016 water crisis in Flint, Michigan demonstrated faults in the system. The crisis in Flint occurred because chemistry was misunderstood, neglected, and ignored. In this session, we will explore the causes and implications of the Flint and related water crises and the role of an informed and outspoken citizenry in preventing repeated crises of this type.

Football Today at Juniata – a look at the strategies and trends

The Historical Jesus and the Kingdom of God
420, Founders Hall

Bob Miller, Ph.D., Rosenberger Professor of Christian Thought and Religious Studies
Christianity has traditionally interpreted Jesus’ teaching of the Kingdom of God to be about a heavenly afterlife.

This presentation explores what Jesus meant by his paradoxical teaching that the Kingdom of God is already here.

Sensory History and American Slavery
401, Founders Hall

Dave Hsiung, Ph.D., Charles and Shirley Knox Professor of History
We cannot understand our sensory perceptions through biology alone, but must also consider history and culture. After all, what is "sweet," or "cold," or "loud"? The senses can also help us understand the past more fully. This class will investigate how touch, sight, and sound can help us to think about American slavery in new ways. 

The Báb: A Pivotal Figure in Religious History
420, Founders Hall

Debra Kirchhof-Glazier, Ph.D., professor emerita of biology
This year marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of ‘Ali Muhammad in Shiraz, Persia, who later became known as the Báb, meaning “the Gate”. The Báb’s teachings provided a pivotal point in religious history, serving to mark the end of the Age of Prophecy and opening the gate to the Age of Fulfillment in which humanity would receive the teachings for world unity from “One Whom God will make manifest”. That one was Bahá’u’lláh, a contemporary of the Báb who became the founder of the Bahá’í Faith. This session will focus on the remarkable life and death of the Báb and his short-lived but powerful legacy.

The Brain and Why Delaying Gratification is So Difficult
Neff Lecture Hall, von Liebig Center for Science

Rebecca Weldon, Ph.D., assistant professor of psychology
As humans, we often make choices that can be detrimental to our health: smoking cigarettes, abusing substances, eating unhealthy foods. We tend to favor an option that brings us immediate gratification (e.g., smoking a cigarette) rather than an option that would bring us greater satisfaction in the future (e.g., refraining from smoking to adhere to a long-term goal of quitting smoking). In this class, I will present some of the compelling findings from psychology and neuroscience that suggest that there are ways that we can improve our ability to delay gratification.
