From last month…
On October 4, 2010. Greg Reed, U.T. Professor and Associate Vice Chancellor for Research, spoke on “The Discovery-Based Learning Environment: Intellectual Entrepreneurs.”
On October 18, 2010, Dr. Micah Jessup, a structural geologist and Assistant Professor in the UT Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences presented a talk on the underlying geology of the Himalayan Mountains. He has taken several trips up Mount Everest ( but not to the top). The top of Mount Everest has limestone formed on the bottom of the sea. The Himalayan Mountains are formed by the collision of a plate carrying India and the Asian plate. The Indian plate is going under the Asian plate and causing the Asian plate to rise. Dr. Jessup showed the pattern of fault lines and earthquakes in the region- including Tibet.
On October 25, 2010: Dr. Richard Jantz, Professor Emeritus of Anthropology and Director, Forensic Anthropology Center, University of Tennessee spoke on “What do forensic anthropologists do and how do they do it?”
He showed what forensic anthropologists can determine about a person from skeletal remains. He illustrated how age, race, sex, height, and even weight
can be estimated. This information, called the biological profile, is the first step in making
an identification of unidentified skeletal remains. He also presented some case studies illustrating the points.

the Forensic Anthropology Data Bank and the UT donated collection were also discussed. Technical Society members and members of the public can consider donating themselves (after death of course !) to the “body farm” ( they don’t like the name). and save the cost of burial. No one volunteered after the meeting.
Please NOTE that the November 22 meeting is an experiment to see if an evening meeting time would attract more attendance to Technical Society meetings. This will be an interesting topic and members are encouraged to invite people who should be attending Technical Society meetings but who in many instances are not even aware of the society’s existence.
