The Department of Psychology and the Program in Neuroscience at Florida State University will present the 2015 James C. Smith Lecture on Jan. 15. Linda Rinaman, a professor of neuroscience at the University of Pittsburgh, will be the featured speaker.

Rinaman is an internationally renowned expert in tracing neural circuits involved with the regulation of feeding and also has recently been focusing on early perinatal events in shaping the development of neural structures involved in the mediation of responses to stress. She is a past president of the Society for the Study of Ingestive Behavior and is a Florida State alumna, having received her B.S. from FSU in the mid-1980s.

Smith Lecturers are distinguished researchers in behavioral neuroscience who are selected by a committee that includes former students of James C. Smith, a longtime professor of psychology at Florida State. Lecturers spend several days on campus, meeting with students and faculty and making a public presentation. The Smith Lecture Series began in 2008 with an endowment provided by Stan and Paula Warmath. Students, colleagues and friends of Smith have augmented the endowment.

Smith is a two-time graduate of FSU, having earned a master’s degree in experimental psychology in 1951 and a doctorate in the same discipline in 1959. Among his many honors, he holds the title of Robert O. Lawton Distinguished Professor, which is the highest honor faculty can bestow on a colleague at FSU. Although he became an emeritus professor in 2003, he has continued to conduct research in areas including taste sensitivity in animals, conditioned taste aversions and animal psychophysics.

Florida State University's Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Science has partnered with the Tallahassee Scientific Society and the Big Bend Leon Association of Science Teachers (B.L.A.S.T.), to host a free, public lecture at the Challenger Learning Center.

The NSF GeoPRISMS Distinguished Lecturer will be Elizabeth "Liz" Cottrell, who is director of the Global Volcanism Program at the Smithsonian Program. She will speak on "Volcanoes: Windows to the Deep."

Cottrell conducts experiments at high pressures and temperatures to understand the evolution of Earth’s mantle, from the time of planetary accretion and core formation to today. Currently she is focused on understanding how oxygen, hydrogen and carbon cycle between mantle reservoirs, and how this influences the petrogenesis of Earth’s crust and the deep carbon cycle. Cottrell received her Ph.D. from Columbia University and was a postdoctoral fellow at the Geophysical Laboratory at the Carnegie Institution of Washington before joining the Smithsonian in 2007.

Written by Gerald Alessandrini

Directed by Gerald Alessandrini & Philip George

Forbidden Broadway, the award-winning hit satirical revue, has run Off-Broadway for more than twenty-five years. Opening on January 15, 1982, at Palsson’s Supper Club on New York’s Upper West Side, Forbidden Broadway was created and written by Gerard Alessandrini and directed by Alessandrini with long-time collaborator Phillip George. The show brilliantly spoofs the show tunes, characters and plots of contemporary Broadway musicals, as well as the leading ladies and gentlemen of the Great White Way. It also satirizes famous Broadway composers, directors, choreographers, authors and producers. The four-person show, featuring two male and two female vocalists, has released eleven albums to critical acclaim. A veritable who’s who of theatrical performers has paraded through the fabulous costumes of the Forbidden Broadway productions through the years.

"Gleeful, Malicious and Hilarious…murderous good fun!” – The Associated Press

Alessandrini has created numerous versions, parodies and editions of the show that have run almost continuously for 25 years with productions in New York City and around the world. In 2006, Mr. Alessandrini and the show were awarded Tony Honors for Excellence in Theatre. The 25th Anniversary production, Forbidden Broadway: Rude Awakening, won the 2008 Drama Desk Award for outstanding revue. Its latest Off-Broadway incarnation, Forbidden Broadway Comes Out Swinging plays to packed houses at the Davenport Theatre.

Alive and Kicking features “the best of the best,” including old favorites such as “Can You Feel the Pain Tonight (“Can You Feel the Love Tonight” from The Lion King),” and new hits, such as “Nascar Shows (“We Built This City” from Rock of Ages).” Called “gut-bustingly funny” by The New York Post, this is a not-to-miss evening of Broadway hilarity!

It can be challenging to get students to watch and concentrate on course videos. However, with emerging technologies, you can now embed quiz questions in videos that students must answer to continue the video and can be made part of the course's grades. In this hands on workshop we will go through the process of creating the quiz embedded videos, and go over how to integrate them into Blackboard and the course gradebook. Important: Bring your laptop to this session so you can use the tools during the session! To register, please visit: http://distance.fsu.edu/spring-workshop-series

Gregory Porter wields one of the most captivating baritone voices in music today. Fusing jazz, R&B, and pop he emits enormous soul that conveys both the emotions and intellect of any given song without relying on vocal histrionics. In The New York Times, Nate Chinen wrote: “Gregory Porter has most of what you want in a male jazz singer, and maybe a thing or two you didn’t know you wanted.” Singer Dee Dee Bridgewater praised Porter in the pages of JazzTimes by saying, “We haven’t had a male singer like him in a long time. He’s such a wonderful writer (and) tells these great stories.” Indeed Porter has an amazing gift for writing poignant songs based upon personal experiences with a relatable and emotional immediacy. Even more, “his hooky melodies” grab you instantly.

“Gregory Porter’s Liquid Spirit is shot through with gospel, blues and R&B influences… the title track pairs soulful horns with a deep, enveloping bassline that frames the California native’s supple tenor.” – The Wall Street Journal

With her thunderous, gospel-bred pipes and heart-to-heart content, singer-songwriter Avery*Sunshine can’t help spilling the truth in her music. She knows the best route sometimes is the direct one. No detours. So listeners won’t have to “get on her level” - she’s already on theirs. Avery has always been frank - the girlfriend and single mother of two who’ll offer not just real, but relevant talk. That breakup? She’s been there. Stressful days (See: today)? Give her self-titled debut a spin and you’ll see. It’s organic. Soulful. Therapeutic.
