    Presented by Dr. Scott Loarie, Post-doctoral Fellow at the Department of Global Ecology, Carnegie Institution, Stanford University Social networks have revolutionized the way people share information across the internet. The volume of plant and animal photographs shared on sites like Facebook and Flickr has outpaced specimen collection efforts by museums governments and academics. But this information has yet to be harnessed for science and conservation. iNaturalist.org, a social network for naturalist, aims to connect amateurs and experts to convert photos of biodiversity shared on the web into useful data for science and conservation. This summer, in partnership with the Smithsonian, IUCN/SSC, and others iNaturalist launched the Global Amphibian Bioblitz, an effort to census every species of amphibian. In the first three months, the effort yielded over 700 distinct species (~10% of the world's amphibian species) from 55 countries around the world. The effort peaked the interest of those interested in engaging the public about conservation as well as concern from groups combating collecting and poaching. The success of efforts like the Global Amphibian Bioblitz reveals the potential of citizen-science through social networks as a scalable and cost-effective new tool for monitoring global biodiversity.

        Tom De Blasis appeared at Texas A&M's Architecture Lecture Series Sept. 19, 2011 in Preston Geren Auditorium. He teamed with Waves for Water, an organization that aims to maximize access to drinking water for all the world’s residents, to develop the Gamechanger Bucket, which addresses Haiti’s drinking water shortage as well as its love of soccer. “As a profession we spend most of our energy and talent serving the needs of business or lusting after being the designer of the next Jordan or Kobe,” De Blasis recently told CounterKicks, a breaking news sneaker website. “I know that we can also serve the needs of the world at the same time by using our skills and the horsepower of global machines like Nike and other companies to different ends than just selling more stuff.” For more about De Blasis, visit http://archone.tamu.edu/college/news/newsletters/spring2011/stories/DeBlasis_lecture.html.

            The Abbott Family Leadership Conference has been a Memorial Student Center program at Texas A&M University since 1995. Each year approximately 70 Aggie students (an equal number of males and females) are chosen as delegates to the Abbott conferences. The students are challenged to examine their personal value system and how they choose to apply it towards their lives, both as leaders at Texas A&M and in their future business, community, and family relationships. The impact of the conference may lead them to live by high ethical and moral standards. The way a life is lived reveals the values, beliefs, and commitments of that person, and those elements demonstrate what each individual believes to be their purpose in life. This series of films are part of a promotion set I did for AFLC, which I got to be apart of. For more information visit http://abbott.tamu.edu/
