Science on Tap!

Blondie's Food and Drink
Dr. Jenny Cappuccio from the HSU Department of Chemistry will give an informal talk entitled:

"Membrane Proteins I Have Known and Loved"

Proteins are the molecular machines of life. Many proteins are soluble enzymes and act as catalysts for cellular chemical reactions. Others are fibrous and provide structure for cells and tissues. Membrane proteins however are at the interface of two environments and as such, act as molecular gatekeepers for the transport of molecules, getting signals in from the outside, and causing charge separations for bioenergetics. Surface-layer proteins are another similarly positioned class of proteins also at the interface of a microbial cell. My research has centered on these amazing classes of proteins and their applications to light activated signaling in bacteria and bioremediation of heavy metals.

XOCOMIL - Book Reading by Davide Mohrmann

Library Fishbowl
HSU Library will host David Mohrmann’s reading of his newly released book XOCOMIL: The Winds of Atitlán on Friday, May 6 in the Fishbowl, 12-2pm. The reading will be followed by a Q & A, discussion, and a book signing.

David Mohrmann’s novel XOCOMIL: The Winds of Atitlán spans what many historians term the “Guatemalan Civil War.” That, unfortunately, does not include the USA involvement, or begin to describe how it was experienced by the oppressed indigenous Maya.

The story begins and ends at Lake Atitlán. It travels from traditional Maya villages through the war-torn mountains of Guatemala; from cornfields in Kansas through the jungles of Vietnam; from pot-filled hills in northern California through the psychedelic haunts of San Francisco to the ruins, and magic mushrooms, of southern Mexico. It is about simple lands full of complex intrigues. And hope. Always hope.
David Mohrmann received his bachelor's degree in Social Psychology at the University of California in Santa Barbara. After receiving an MFA in Dramatic Writing, he became a member of the Theater Film and Dance Department at Humboldt State University. He wrote and produced more than 10 plays, but his most significant contribution was in the area of political street theater as a trained practitioner in “Theatre of the Oppressed.” He retired early so that he could get back to writing fiction. His stories have also appeared in Toyon, Brink, The Battered Suitcase, and The Furnace Review.
