  • Did you know one in three Binghamton residents lives in poverty -- 2.5 times above the U.S. average? Many Binghamton families currently struggle to meet their essential needs, and with the cold winter and holiday season approaching, it’s more important than ever to have warm clothing, bedsheets and toiletries at home.

    This disparity is why the Community Service Committee at Binghamton University’s School of Management has partnered with the YWCA of Broome County to host a digital donation drive to provide essential items for 11 single-mother families from the YWCA.

    In supporting this charitable cause, join us in spreading the word by reposting the event on LinkedIn and checking out the Amazon Wishlist. Even if you cannot donate, you can help by sharing with your network or family, which exponentially increases the odds of reaching others.

  • Speakers and Lectures

  • IASH Fellows Coleen Watson, philosophy, and Liyang Dong, English, will speak beginning at noon Wednesday, Nov. 30, in the IASH Conference Room, LN-1106.

    Watson will speak on "The Wisdom of the People Public Humanities Project"
    My project is a podcast series that will explore specific issues in political philosophy, with special emphasis on democratic theory. Mainstream political rhetoric rarely considers questions about what democratic freedom and equality are and why democratic institutions and processes are valuable, despite so much lip service paid to the social goods of democracies. This project hopes to fill this gap in public conversation by creating a podcast aimed at engaging general audiences with the philosophical concepts behind democratic governance. In addition, the podcast will explore how political philosophy’s ideas impact listeners’ everyday lives in hopes of promoting more rigorous civic discourse about normative issues in democratic life while demonstrating shared conceptual common ground many citizens haven’t recognized.

    Among the questions explored in that topic is whether democracy is valuable merely instrumentally because it is good at satisfying individual preferences, or because democracy also has intrinsic value in that they are better than all other forms of government at promoting freedom and equality among citizens. Other topics to explore will include appropriate remedies to social and structural injustices, political knowledge and disinformation, and the limits of free speech.

    Dong will speak on “Immigrant Detainees and Survivors –
    Community Formation Through Digital Archive and Storytelling”

    This project will create a digital archive using ArcGis that centers the stories and narratives in different formats from the Golden Venture passengers and offers a space for past and current immigrants who work with PIRC to share their stories anonymously. This project fills an urgent gap and a need as it recognizes the continuing link between the Golden Venture immigrants and other immigrants who consult and receive support from PIRC in that they have all been unjustly treated, criminalized, marginalized within the U.S. immigration policies and detention and asylum statute. The Golden Venture asylum seekers were deported, detained, criminalized, and particularly the women detainees were violently abused. However, their microhistory and narratives have been largely silenced, forgotten, and even erased in the dominant narrative. The digital archive will feature story maps incorporating multimedia formats of anonymous narratives from and about the Golden Venture passengers; it also aims to build an online community of storytellers and story sharing by immigrants working with PIRC to empower their identities, amplify their voices, and exert their agency.

  • Gary Nieman, professor of research in the Department of Surgery at SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, N.Y., will speak on "The Long and Winding Road: 46 years in Biomedical Research" from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Friday, Dec. 2, in SN-1001A. Nieman is also the director of the Translational Critical Care Laboratory with a research focus on the pathogenesis and treatment of the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), ventilator induced lung injury (VILI) and multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS).

    The 46-year history of research conducted in a large animal translational critical care laboratory will be discussed. Multiple animal models have been developed over the decades to test pharmacologic and device treatments for clinical problems found in the intensive care unit (ICU) including acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), the abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS), and multiple organ disfunction syndrome (MODS). A brief review of these studies, especially those studies with a chemical or mechanical engineering component, will be given. The current focus of the lab is the pathophysiology and treatment of ARDS, which is a serious lung disease requiring mechanical ventilation to survive. However, if improperly applied the ventilator can cause a secondary ventilator induced lung injury (VILI) that can significantly increase ARDS-related mortality. Our group is concentrating our efforts on the development of novel protective mechanical ventilation strategies necessary to minimize VILI. In collaboration with bioengineers from Tulane and the Universities of Vermont and Iowa, we have analyzed the impact of the mechanical breath on the functional units of the lung, alveoli and alveolar ducts, following acute lung injury. We have found that ARDS caused pulmonary surfactant dysfunction renders the lung time and pressure dependent. This means that it will take more time for the collapsed lung to open and less time for open tissue to collapse at any given airway pressure. With this knowledge we developed the Time-controlled Adaptive Ventilation (TCAV) to set and adjust the ventilator mode airway pressure release ventilation (APRV). TCAV uses an extended time at inspiration to recruit alveoli with long opening time constants and a very brief expiratory duration to prevent the newly opened alveoli from re-collapsing. We have shown the TCAV method to be highly lung protective in translational animal models and in patients with ARDS, including COVID-19 induced ARDS (CARDS).

  • A Data Science TAE Data Salon will be held from noon-1 p.m. Friday, Dec. 2, in person in AA-340, and will be presented by Ning Zhou, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at Binghamton University, who will speak on “Integrated Dynamic State Estimation in Power Systems.”

    To make well-informed decisions, power system operators need accurate timely estimates of the operational conditions of the power grid. Up to the present time, conventional static state estimators have been widely deployed in utility control centers to improve the estimation accuracy and expand the monitoring areas. However, these estimators are no longer sufficient for monitoring the modern power grid, which is experiencing increasing uncertainty and variation driven by the high penetration of intermittent renewable energy sources (mainly solar and wind). In fact, conventional static state estimation methods for power grids often fail to provide any useful information during transmission-line tripping and cascading grid failures when the power system rapidly changes, and state estimation results are crucially needed. In this presentation, the conventional state estimation is reviewed. Also, a dynamic state estimation (DSE) approach is proposed that can not only estimate current operational conditions but also predict their future trends and quantify their uncertainty. To minimize the financial cost of measurement devices while achieving observability of important system states, observability and detectability studies are carried out to guide measurement placement and model selection. It is shown that many dynamic states in the power systems are marginally observable (virtually unobservable). If an observer model can be chosen to make the eigenvalues of the corresponding states stable, the DSE can still converge to the true value of the states.
