Samoan Siva Dance Demonstration and Lesson

As part of the Pan-Asian Pacific Islander Perspectives festival, A.P.A.S.A. presents: Learn Samoan Siva Dance with Alina Randall​.

Siva Samoa is a traditional Samoan dance from American Samoa. The dance was originally performed by high chiefs, but today is performed by the chiefs' families. Performing a Siva is honorable as it retains the dancer's grace, culture, and respect for high chiefs and the Samoan culture. Sivas are usually performed at weddings, baptisms, and funerals, but chiefs can ultimately decide if and when his family will perform a Siva.

Radically Efficient Design for Zero Net Energy Buildings

Behavioral and Social Sciences Building
HSU's Sustainable Futures Speaker Series presents Jonathan Woolley of UC Davis's Western Cooling Efficiency Center. The title of his talk is, "Radically Efficient Design for Zero Net Energy Buildings.”

Mr. Woolley will share the integrative design of a Zero Net Energy home in Davis, CA that will generate enough electricity on site to cover household needs, plus the annual drive cycle for an electric vehicle. The home is slated for construction in 2013 and should serve as an example and research case to support California's goals for Zero Net Energy residential construction by 2020.

Woolley’s building science research focuses on design, development and control of low energy mechanical systems. His efforts target full-scale demonstration and evaluation of emerging technologies for commercial and residential buildings, with a focus on strategies to enable Zero Net Energy construction. While these demonstrations employ cutting edge mechanical technologies, his building design philosophy is founded on passive techniques that reduce the need for active mechanical systems.
