New park planned for Emory Village

From Emory Report: by David Payne. An oasis is taking shape amid the ongoing construction related to the Emory Village roundabout and streetscape improvements. The roadway for the new roundabout will open space that is currently covered in asphalt for a new "pocket park" adjacent to the Chevron gas station and North Oxford Road. The small park -- approximately 8,300 square feet –- will be one of the newly created public spaces in the revitalized Village.

Information Security Awareness - Social Networking and Privacy

Of possible interest from Emory's IT division: While websites designed for social networking are not new, they have continued to grow and change over time. They help people not only keep in touch with each other, but also with organizations and activities that interest them. They have also become a new ground for scams and stalkers.

Free Emory talk: Sleep Across The Disciplines

Event Date and Time: 
11/10/2010 - 4:00pm - 5:30pm

From Emory's Center for Mind, Brain, and Culture, an event free and open to the public: Sleep Across The Disciplines.  While the study of sleep has become an important area of scientific and medical inquiry over the past century, it is still relatively hidden from view in the humanities and social sciences.  The historian Roger Ekirch and anthropologist Carol Worthman are two of the first to explore in depth sleep’s vicissitudes across the centuries and across different cultural boundaries.  They will be  joined in conversation by two prominent medical researchers, Carlos Schenck and David Rye, to discuss how different disciplinary approaches to our nightly experience of unconsciousness can inform each other.
