Perspective in Single Cell Genomics-by Professor Stephen Quake

When: Feb 5 (Fri) 2016, 10:00 - 11:00 am

Where:ALWAY M106, 291 Campus Drive, Stanford, CA 94305

Registration: https://goo.gl/huy4vn

CLIPSS are delighted to invite Dr. Stephen Quake, the Lee Otterson Professor of Bioengineering and Applied Physics, to share his perspectives on the emerging single-cell genomics. Advances in whole-genome and whole-transcriptome amplification have permitted the sequencing of the minute amounts of DNA and RNA present in a single cell. Single-cell approaches stand poised to revolutionise our capacity to understand the scale of genomic, epigenomic, and transcriptomic diversity that occurs during the lifetime of an individual organism. Single-cell techniques, ranging from flow cytometry and microfluidics to PCR and sequencing, are used to understand the cellular composition of complex tissues, find new microbial species, and perform genome-wide haplotyping.

3. What is the one area of focus that most Chinese speakers need to work on most to become powerful, respected public speakers? (yet they almost never do).

Short bio of the speaker:

Rebecca Linquist is an American English Speech Coach who has lived and worked in the Silicon Valley for the last 20 years in corporate and educational environments as a corporate trainer, manager, and speech coach.
Seven years ago, she created a curriculum to enable people from other countries to acquire an American Accent in 2.5 months, a dramatic departure from the mainstream approaches, which typically take 6 months to a year to create a result, and often not a sustainable one. Her approach drew from knowledge of linguistics, speech therapy, and best practices in speech and business, as well as a belief in creating behavioral change as opposed to merely sharing theories and ideas. Her knowledge base centers around how to tap into the potential of non-native speaking professionals and executives to enable greater clarity and confidence in their communication in American English. Rebecca coined the term “American Accent Acquisition,” which has since been adopted by organizations who use the term to describe her services to potential clients. English by the Hour provides services to both corporate and individual clients throughout the US as well as globally via teleconferencing. Rebecca has personally coached thousands of clients with first languages ranging from Chinese to the many diverse Indian languages to Spanish to Korean to Tagalog and many others. She currently coaches primarily executive and professionally accomplished clients in areas related to clear and effective communication in American English, including public speaking and presentation language, clearly setting context and adding coherence and cohesion to speech, as well as the more mainstream pronunciation, word stress, and intonation training. Her methodology is a departure from the norm and focuses on acquiring the mouth movement and breathing patterns of native speakers in addition to the pronunciation patterns to accelerate change.

Recently, Ms. Linquist created materials specifically for the Science & Technology clients she works with in the Silicon Valley, further enabling them to expedite results using language they are likely to encounter on a daily basis. The effectiveness of her programs have been featured on the front page of the San Jose Mercury News in 2007, and on National Public Radio (NPR). For more information about the specifics of the programs, see the course outlines at www.englishbythehour.com.

Jun 30Seminar on Financial Responsibility

Taking Financial Responsibility: What’s Your Game Plan?
Speaker: Kevin Chen, CLU (New York Life Consultant)
Date:  Jun 30, 2011 (Thursday)
Time: 6:00pm – 8:00pm
Location: CCSR 4105

How’s your financial strategy coming along? The old adage, “People don’t plan to fail, they fail to plan,” can be especially true when it comes to finances. And, given the current economy, the best time to start taking control of your finances is today. Being financially responsible doesn’t just happen. It’s a conscious decision you make to live within your means. A nationwide survey on the financial state of U. S. households found only 13% of households is currently saving 7% or more of their disposable income although 36% of households expect to save at this level.

It’s Never Too Late to Plan

No matter what stage of life you’re in, you should have a strategy that helps meet your financial needs while creating a path to help you reach long term goals. Whether you’re just starting out or nearing retirement, a strategy is necessary, and the good news is no matter what your age, it’s never too late to star.

Consider the following scenarios:

If you’re single….
If you’re the head of a new household…
If you have young children…
If you’re thinking about retirement…
If you disable…

No matter where you are in life, a financial strategy is a necessity. New York Life has developed a fun and engaging way to talk about the importance of being financially responsible. During this Free Educational Seminar Open to Public, we will take attendees through THE GAME OF LIFE. This funny presentation will highlight: the importance of saving retirement and managing your finances today and for the Future.

Dinner and small gifts will be provided!
