* Run, Hide, Fight Active Shooter Drill - Practice "Hide" Only!

In partnership with the Evansville Police Department, an Active Shooter Drill will take place the week of April 1-5. This drill will focus solely on the HIDE element of the exercise, regardless of whether the fictitious event affects your specific location. The drill will be announced to the campus via Ace Alerts and the active shooter audio sirens will sound signaling there is a threatening event.

During the drill: Find a location to shelter-in-place (HIDE), and lock doors or barricade within a particular space. Members of the Evansville Police Department will be stationed inside various buildings to gauge individual responses to the drill, as well as determine how quickly individuals were able to make a decision regarding the HIDE part of the drill. Once the drill is over, another AceAlert will be sent with the announcement to resume normal duties.

Note: The University invested in the purchase of interior locking mechanisms which have been installed in the majority of classrooms, enabling doors to be locked from the inside of the room. The supplier of the locking mechanisms is scheduled to deliver the rest of the locking mechanisms by the end of the spring semester to complete this project. If you are in a room that does not have the ability to be locked, you should consider other options to barricade the door as part of the “hide” element of the exercise. 

The drill will be announced to the campus via Ace Alerts and the active shooter audio sirens will sound signaling there is a threatening event. Additional information about “Run, Hide, Fight” can be found at www.evansville.edu/safety.

* This Week in Music: UE Opera and Student Recitals

UE Opera Presents Cosi Fan Tutte
Friday, March 29 and Saturday, March 30
7:30 p.m., Preston Arts Center, Henderson, KY
On March 29 and March 30, at 7:30 p.m., the University of Evansville Schmidt Opera Series comes to the Preston Arts Center in Henderson, Kentucky, with Mozart's comedy Così fan tutte: A School for Lovers. In this opera, the cynical Don Alfonso goads his two young friends into making a not-so-friendly wager. Its outcome will either defend the virtue of the women they love or expose an infidelity present in women everywhere. The battle lines have been drawn as the two men set out to test the faithfulness of their unwitting fiancées.

In this production we find our characters in a college town in southern Indiana with visiting guests from a rival Kentucky school. As we wonder who will ultimately prevail in this battle of the sexes, the musical genius of Mozart pervades the arias, ensembles, and choruses of Cosi fan tutte.

Mozart's opera is brought to life by UE students directed by Alanna Keenan, Associate Professor of Music with a professional orchestra under the baton of Dennis Malfatti, professor of music. Henderson native Adam Smith, takes on the role of the scheming Don Alfonso. He efforts are aided by his confidant, Despina, played by Madeline Cox of Gibson County. Rounding out the cast are the four lovers Darwi Sandleben, Kathryn Lee, Isaac Cooper, and Clay Steenbergen, all of Evansville, Indiana.

All are welcome to attend. Admission is a suggested donation of $10. The Henderson Arts Center is located at 2660 South Green Street, Henderson, KY 42420

Student Recitals

* Kurt Vonnegut and Hoosier Quality of Place to be topic of lecture

The University of Evansville’s annual Chutney Literary Conference is set for April 5-6, on UE’s campus. UE students will be presenting critical papers, and will have the opportunity to win awards for their efforts.

The conference starts with the Melvin M. Peterson Literary Forum’s Hemminger-Brown Lecture on Friday, April 5. The lecture will begin at 7:00 p.m. in Room 162 (Harkness Hall), Schroeder School of Business Building. The guest speaker will be Edward P. Comentale, professor of English, associate vice provost for arts and humanities, and director of the Arts and Humanities Council at Indiana University Bloomington. His topic will be “Kurt Vonnegut and Hoosier ‘Quality of Place.’”

“This talk introduces my work in developing “quality of place” programs with communities in southern Indiana," said Comentale, "and then explores how Vonnegut’s fiction provides ways of thinking through vexed questions about the state’s identity, culture, and politics."

Comentale added that, after "a close look at depictions of Indiana and its people in Vonnegut’s early novels as well as his autobiographical accounts of his childhood in Indianapolis, I will examine how, in his later work, he places the state’s cultural history squarely at the center of national history and makes it representative of the problems that plague the nation at large. A widening class divide, political radicalization, the collapse of civic discourse - Vonnegut’s writing locates both the causes and potential corrections to these issues in the traditions and communities he knew in the Hoosier state and then makes a case for writing and storytelling as essential to restoring the country’s democratic institutions.”

Comentale is the author of Modernism, Cultural Production, and the British Avant-Garde and Sweet Air: Modernism, Regionalism, and American Popular Song. He co-edits a scholarly book series on fan cultures for Indiana University Press, through which he has published The Year’s Work in Lebowski Studies and The Year’s Work at the Zombie Research Center.

The conference ends on Saturday, April 6, with student panels planned for 9:30 a.m., 10:45 a.m., and noon in Rooms 271 and 272 in the Schroeder School of Business Building. The Grabill and Klinger Writing Prizes will also be awarded at this time.

* A Salute to Women's History: Joan Ganz Cooney

Joan Ganz Cooney, born November 30, 1929, began her career as a reporter in her hometown of Phoenix, Arizona. From 1954 to 1962 she worked as a publicist for NBC in New York and for the U.S. Steel Hour, a highly acclaimed CBS drama series. Mrs. Cooney eventually produced documentaries at WNET/Channel 13, winning her first Emmy for Poverty, Anti-Poverty, and the Poor, a documentary on the U.S. government’s War on Poverty program.

In 1966, with the support of Lloyd Morrisett, then a vice president at the Carnegie Corporation of New York, Mrs. Cooney produced a study entitled The Potential Uses of Television in Preschool Education, which provided the rationale for using television to teach disadvantaged children basic skills through programs that were both educational and entertaining. The report convinced the corporation to partly finance such a project, and Mrs. Cooney and Dr. Morrisett were able to raise the rest of the $8 million through the U.S. Office of Education, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the Ford Foundation. In 1968, the Children’s Television Workshop was born (it was renamed Sesame Workshop in 2000).

Sesame Street debuted a year later and had an immediate and revolutionary impact on children’s educational television. It was the first preschool program to integrate education and entertainment as well as feature a multicultural cast. It has been broadcast daily since 1969 in the U.S. on more than 300 Public Broadcasting Service stations and has been seen by hundreds of millions of children in more than 140 foreign countries. Indigenous co-productions reflecting local languages, customs and educational needs have since been produced for audiences in the Arab world, Israel, India, Indonesia, Bosnia, Portugal, Turkey, Germany, France, Poland, Norway, Sweden, Holland, Russia, China, South Africa, Egypt, the Philippines, Canada, Spain, and Latin America.

* CSML internship opportunity: inference and prediction in linear and non-linear systems

The Cognitive Science Modeling Lab (CSML) is looking for two, possibly three, energetic and self-motivated students to work on a universal vector-processing prediction engine during the 2019-20 academic year. At least one member of the team must have a reasonable mathematics background (at least up through MATH 370) and computer programming skills (at least up through CS 290). Familiarity with artificial intelligence techniques (including neural networks), complex systems, data analytics, infometrics, and/or predictive statistics will be considered a plus for all applicants.

Highly qualified applicants will not only possess technical skills, they must also have a record of reliable commitment and focus, good communication skills, cooperative abilities in working with others on a team, demonstrated responsiveness to following directions, and an ability to deal with unexpected contingencies. (In other words, since this is an open-ended research project it is highly likely that directions and deadlines will change as new discoveries are made.)

Students selected for this internship experience are expected to work on the project for two semesters by enrolling in COGS 492, taking either two or three credit hours in each of the two semesters.

Interested students should email Anthony Beavers, professor of philosophy and director of CSML, at tb2@evansville.edu, with a cover letter, resume, and the names of three UE faculty references to apply. The deadline for applications is April 1. Interviews will be conducted during the first two weeks of April and decisions will be announced on or before April 15.

Please contact Dr. Beavers if you have any questions.

* Aces fall to Bulldogs in midweek contest

McKenzie Johnson and Toni Galas posted two hits apiece, but Butler scored three times in the first inning before finishing with a 7-1 win over the University of Evansville softball team on Tuesday night.

Galas and Johnson combined to register four of the Purple Aces (12-17) six hits. Bailee Bostic and Allison Daggett had the other two.  Johnson drove in UE’s run. The Bulldogs (11-19) scored their seven runs on eight hits.  Maddie Moore had two hits and scored twice.

Butler grabbed the early lead, scoring a pair of runs on a UE error before extending the lead to 3-0 in the top of the first.  They tacked on another run in the third inning.

UE managed to get baserunners, recording four hits while loading the bases up in the fourth inning, but they could not push any across the plate. 

That changed in the bottom half of the sixth when Allison Daggett led off with a double to right. McKenzie Johnson followed that up with a double to the same part of the field to score Daggett and end the shutout. 

The Bulldogs plated their final run on a homer by Christina Candotti in the seventh as they would finish with the 7-1 win. Izzy Vetter made the start for UE and tossed three innings. Jaime Nurrenbern and Emily Lockhart also saw time in the circle.

Next up for UE is a conference series at UNI. The Aces travel to Cedar Falls for two games on Saturday and a single matchup on Sunday.
