Biomass Energy Workshop

Humboldt Bay Aquatic Center
Humboldt State University and the University of California will co-host a biomass energy workshop Thursday, November 7 at the Humboldt Bay Aquatic Center.

The day-long workshop will bring together technology experts, project developers, community organizations and land managers to address opportunities for bioenergy development in the region. The event is co-hosted by HSU’s Schatz Energy Research Center and the University of California’s Woody Biomass Utilization Group.

Recent research by Schatz identified biomass as a key renewable energy resource for the North Coast.
Workshop goals include providing a forum for stakeholders to identify issues and articulate a vision for the role of bioenergy in forest restoration and management regionally. The workshop will also aim to increase understanding of the environmental, engineering and economic considerations of developing and retaining wood bioenergy systems.
Forest-based bioenergy has the potential to provide grid stability, renewable electricity, and heat to help meet California’s expanding energy demand, according to workshop organizers.
12:00 pm-4:00 pm

Truth Behind Institutionalized Racism

Goodwin Forum
My research is about education (in)justice in the Los Angeles school district. My research focuses on factors influencing the decreasing test scores and performance levels of African American and Latino students. As vice-president of the African American Mentor Society at Santa Monica High School, I worked on a project that was concerned with micro-agressions in the education system. This project shares my findings.

Sustainable Futures Speaker Series: Ted Bilek on Forest Products Economics

HSU Campus
Ted Bilek of the US Forest Service Forest Products Laboratory is the next speaker in the Sustainable Futures speaker series. Ted will speak on Thursday, November 7 from 5:30 to 7:00 pm in Gist Hall room 218 (GH218) on the HSU campus. The title of his talk is “An Outlook for Forest Products and Timber Markets: 2012-2030.”

Ted Bilek is a Midwesterner out of the Universities of Wisconsin and Minnesota. He has been with the USDA Forest Service at the Forest Products Laboratory in Madison, Wisconsin for 13 years. Prior to this, Bilek spent 14 years in Christchurch, New Zealand on the faculty of the University of Canterbury School of Forestry. Bilek’s current research relates to economic and financial feasibility analysis. Additional research interests include modeling, data analysis, and forecasting.

Forest products are centrally important to the economy of the North Coast. Over the past decade, there have been interesting advances in areas related to forest management and utilization, including biomass energy and a host of others. Ted's talk will provide insights about future prospects for markets for forest products.
7:00 pm-9:00 pm

Liberation Psychology, Historical Trauma, and Wellness in Native American Communities

Gist Hall
Dominant psychological theory and practice can re-traumatize Native Americans by privileging Euro-American values and definitions of health and healing, leading to internalized oppression and emotional numbing. Liberation psychology argues that that mental health “symptoms” stem from social inequity and injustice rather than individual pathology. This workshop will explore a liberatory path towards healing in the Native community using critical consciousness, empowerment, connection to cultural strengths, and socio-political action.

Presenter: Francesca Parker, Counseling & Psychological Services

Black Panthers: My Experience

Goodwin Forum
Just as Common stated in “A Song for Assata,” I asked myself what I would do if I were in place of Assata Shakur or Elaine Brown. My presentation will connect my participation in the Trayvon Martin justice rally, July 14, 2013, on Crenshaw with Black Panther activists. My focus is on Black youth activism today and the role of Afrocentrism.
