  • Media has recently reported that New York state has ended its COVID testing mandate for unvaccinated state workers.

    SUNY has informed the campus that, at this time, this does not apply to SUNY, so testing for unvaccinated SUNY employees will continue until it is still scheduled to end Aug. 31. If SUNY provides any additional updates or changes, we will inform the campus accordingly. Contact Human Resources at 607-777-2187 with any questions.

  • Information Technology Services will switch to a new ticketing system and IT Self-Service Portal today, Aug. 9. The services that ITS provide won’t change. Only the look and feel of the self-service request process, notifications and communication received when submitting a ticket will change in format. When interacting with IT Self-Service, or the “Client Portal," you will see an upgraded interface where you can submit IT-related requests, report problems, view available services and search the ITS Knowledge Base. You will also be able to see any tickets you have active in the system.

    The new Client Portal is easier to navigate, lets you see your open service tickets, and makes self-service requests more efficient. Beginning today, ITS encourages the campus community to use the new Client Portal to submit service tickets to receive the fastest service possible.

    If you have the current Self-Service Portal bookmarked, note this will need updating to reflect the new web address of the Client Portal. You will be able to find the web address by going to https://binghamton.edu/its

  • Reach out to Ryan Yarosh asap if interested in any of the following:

    1. You were wrong, and now you know it: Some of the biggest advancements in medicine and human health were the result of new data: Science investigated a question, and the answers cast enough doubt on established “common knowledge” or “conventional wisdom” to essentially disprove it. We’re looking for scholars in the biomedical sciences who have had this experience as an individual. That is, advancement in their field included conducting, studying or just finding research that upended their assumptions about: a condition or symptoms and how human bodies are affected; the experiences of patients or a cohort of them, including how they experience an illness or condition, or respond to an intervention.

    2. Efficiently using A/C when it’s hot: Most people know it uses more energy the cooler you set your air conditioner. But there seems to be a lot of confusion about whether it’s more efficient to keep your A/C set at a moderate temperature when you’re not home or to let your house achieve roasting temps in your absence and then cool it down again when you get home. We’re looking for an energy efficiency expert who can run the numbers and settle this debate once and for all. This will be a short article, hopefully written in a lively tone, and the goal will be to publish soon while people in the U.S. are dealing with record temps.

    3. Climate bill: The climate bill passed by the Senate on Sunday includes several incentives for installing energy efficient HVAC and electric appliances and energy efficient retrofits in homes. We're looking for a scholar familiar with the bill and home energy efficiency who can discuss the impact this bill could have on energy demand, emissions and importantly how it could affect homeowners’ energy costs.

    4. Catholic Church in Germany: Welcoming pitches related to German priests’ “Synodal Path” conference coming up Sept. 8-10 – for example, how the German churches’ wish for reform puts a spotlight on wider tensions in the global Catholic Church; or how the sex abuse crisis has affected lay Catholics’ hopes for reform.

    5. Burn pit legislation: Last week Congress passed legislation that will expand health care benefits to veterans who have been exposed to toxic chemicals. We’re interested in pitches that can help readers understand the importance of this new law. For example, we’d like to hear from a clinician or cancer researcher who has worked with or studied diseases caused by toxic exposure to explain what burn pits are and how veterans got so sick from them, a historian who has studied the fight to get veterans treatment for conditions related to Agent Orange or a public policy scholar who can explain the costs of this historic expansion of veterans’ health care benefits.

    In case you missed it, we are still chasing:

    6. Why money exists: I’m seeking a scholar who can answer this question for our Curious Kids series: “Why do money and trading have to exist?” This article will be very short (up to 600 words long) and written so that someone at a sixth-grade reading level will understand it.

    7. America the religious: Why are Americans relatively religious, compared to people in many other wealthy countries? Some have argued it’s due to separation of church and state – that by not formally enshrining one sect, America’s government has created a ‘free market’ of religious ideas that allows faith to thrive. Looking for a scholar of religion, history, etc., to explain this idea, and how it compares to countries with state churches.

    8. How do you make non-alcoholic booze? With more and more non-alcoholic beers and wines turning up at bars and BBQs, we’re interested in the chemistry behind how these beverages are made. Looking for a scholar who has worked in this area who can explain the steps a producer takes to make sure there’s no alcohol in the finished product (and is it truly zero?).

    9. Tie-off grants: Many large foundations that adjust or narrow their strategies give prior grantees a final round of funding rather than just ending support. I’m seeking a scholar who can explain this practice and say why it matters in light of a major shift in focus, most recently, by the Rockefeller Foundation. This article will be, ideally, about 400 words long and in our Significant Terms format.

    10. Inflation and food banks: I’m seeking a scholar who can explain how inflation is affecting food banks. This article will address the costs of labor, fuel and food, as well as rising demand from people having more trouble paying for food and getting to stores.

    11. Effective altruism: I’m seeking a scholar who can briefly explain what effective altruism (giving so as to do the most good with the dollars donated) is and why it matters. This article will be, ideally, about 400 words long and in our Significant Terms format.

    12. Food-grade CO2 shortage: Over the past year supply chain and production issues have created periodic shortages of food-grade carbon dioxide, which is affecting companies such as craft beer brewers and meat packers. We are looking for an expert who can explain how food-grade CO2 is produced, how it’s used and why industries can run short of a seemingly abundant element.

    13. "Hi, how are you?”: Looking for cultural linguists, anthropologists, etc., interested in writing about greeting rituals across cultures. During the pandemic, there have been plenty of jokes about how no one really wants to answer the question “How are you?” – which Americans don’t really want strangers to answer even at the best of times. So how did this become the standard greeting? In particular, looking for experts who can explain how some other cultures handle greeting rituals, and the social purpose behind them.

    14. Religion in Russia: Looking for a Russia scholar interested in writing a brief overview of 3-4 of the country’s minority religions and the challenges adherents face, amid concerns of increasing crackdowns on religious freedoms.

    15. Religions in America: Justice Breyer said in his dissent during the Carson case that American society had practitioners from 100 different religions. We are looking for scholars to explain: What are these 100 faiths? How many major and minor faith traditions exist in the U.S.?

    SAVE THE DATE: Editors from The Conversation will visit Binghamton University on Sept. 13-14 to host a series of workshops. Stay tuned for details.
