Volcanism changing the course of human history…..
Volcanic activity has shaped human history, art and culture….. in 305 BCE volcanic activity sparked riots on the other side of the world… one eruption is even considered to have “charged” the French Revolution!
Geologist, artists, history buffs, and the like might find their work is even more interconnected then they originally thought!

The rover’s team were sad to see her go, “It’s like you fall in love with a car you’ve been driving since high school,” on team member said. “It’s sad to have to let go of that machine.”
Pizza and AI… hot pies for all!
Science and technology bringing students (and the entire university community) what they love… PIZZA! Check out what our enterprise partners The Ohio State University have recently installed on campus…. a Pizza ATM!
Can measles cause “immune amnesia”? Scientists are learning more about the effects this long studied infectious disease. Measles vaccines not only reduced the number of childhood deaths caused by the disease itself but also reduced the number of deaths caused by many other common illnesses like the flu.
Science and Comedy…..
Learn more about how scientists are using a game to create a data set that will train AI systems to have more casual, relaxed, and natural interactions with humans. The scientists goal: “put a finger onto the exact switch that induces the humor.”
