“Quantum computers and Schrödinger’s cat”

David Wineland

7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Tuesday, May 30

University of Oregon

Struab 156

1451 Onyx St.

Eugene, OR 97403

What is quantum computing and what does it have to do with physicist Erwin Schrödinger’s famous quantum physics cat? In a free public lecture, Nobel-laureate physicist David Wineland will explore these topics and discuss how his research group at the National Institute of Standards and Technology became aware of their connection when carrying out experiments on individual atomic ions. Wineland’s work as the founder of NIST’s ion storage group and as a member of the physics faculty of the University of Colorado at Boulder has led to advances in spectroscopy, atomic clocks and quantum information. He shared the 2012 Nobel Prize in Physics with French physicist Serge Haroche “for groundbreaking experimental methods that enable measuring and manipulation of individual quantum systems.” The lecture is sponsored by the University of Oregon’s Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation and the Department of Physics.

This fall, LLS will host approximately 150 Light The Night Walks across the U.S. to pay tribute and bring hope to people battling cancer. The walks are open to all; there is no fitness requirement. Participants walk in their community and carry lighted lanterns for survivors, supporters and in memory of loved ones lost.

Your local walk(s) will take place on: 10/14/2017

OMSI - Oregon Museum of Science and Industry Portland, OR

When you or someone you love hears the words, “You have cancer,” it’s one of the darkest days of their lives.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) award-winning community events, Light the Night Walks, bring light to the darkness of cancer by uniting survivors and supporters and are a remembrance, a celebration and a rallying cry to help fund critical advances in the fight against blood cancers.

As a result of LLS’s fundraising campaigns like Light The Night, LLS has invested more than $1 billion to advance cancer therapies and save lives. While blood cancer survival rates have doubled, tripled and even quadrupled for some blood cancers since 1960, there is still more work to be done to find cures. Every three minutes on person in the U.S. is diagnosed with a blood cancer, and every nine minutes someone dies from a blood cancer.

LLS’s Light The Night brings light to the darkness of cancer through hope, research and support for patients and their families. For more information or to register for your local walk, call (877) LTN-WALK or visit www.lightthenight.org or to learn more, or to find your local chapter, please visit www.lls.org

After the collapse of civilization, a group of survivors begin to piece together the plot of “The Simpsons” episode “Cape Feare” from memory. Seven years later, this and other glimpses of pop culture (sitcom plots, commercials, jingles, and pop songs) have become the live entertainment of a post-apocalyptic society, sincerely trying to hold onto its past. 75 years later, these are the myths and legends from which new forms of performance are created. An exciting exploration of how the pop culture of one era might evolve into the mythology of another.

This is considered a dark comedy and not recommended for ages 13 and below.
