This Indian Country: American Indian Activists and the Place They Made

National Museum of the American Indian
To celebrate the Inauguration in Washington, D.C., Frederick E. Hoxie will talk about his new book, This Indian Country: American Indian Activists and the Place They Made, a story of political activism with victories hard-won in courts and campaigns rather than on the battlefield. For more than 200 years, Indian lawyers, tribal leaders, activists, and commentators—some famous, many unknown beyond their own communities—have sought to bridge the distance between indigenous cultures and the republican democracy of the United States through legal and political debate. Hoxie, winner of 2012's American Indian History Lifetime Achievement Award and a founding trustee of the National Museum of the American Indian, weaves a powerful narrative that connects the individual to the tribe, the tribe to the nation, and the nation to broader historical processes.

Blennies in Bocas del Toro

Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute
Blennies are a common sight under the Bocas del Toro Research Station's dock. There are over 800 species of blennies (Order: Perciformes) in the world. They are small fish with a long body which allows them to live in rock crevices and coral reefs, and sometimes even burrow in substrate! Blennies have large eyes and mouth, and are quite curious looking.

Herschel Rabitz, Princeton - Jan 7, 2013 - part II

Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory
Herschel Rabitz, Princeton, lecture during ITAMP/B2 Institute Winter Graduate School on AMO Physics held at the B2 campus in Arizona January 4-11,2013. Quantum control -- the active control of chemical and physical events. The theme of controlling events at the molecular scale also extends to research in systems biology. Studies in this area involve the development of analysis tools to identify the key linkages in complex bionetworks to reveal how they function as well as how to control them through the introduction of tailored chemicals.
