From Chimp to Chump: The deep origins of bad decisions

Despite our intelligence humans make many puzzling decisions—we compete when we should cooperate, risk when we should play it safe, and prefer receiving nothing to anything less than our perceived fair share. Why do we make such strange decisions? What are the psychological mechanisms underlying them? I will share some surprising insights my students, collaborators, and I have gained about these questions through our exploration of ape, monkey, and dog minds. Specifically I will discuss how evolution has shaped the way we reason, the mistakes we make, and why apparently irrelevant factors have such sway over our behavior.

four people mentioned in the article.

Another installment of the UET Salon Series was held on Wednesday, Mar. 10, with C. Touchet ’11, Cypress Staelin ’13, Stoli Stolnack ’15, and Avery Reagan ’17.

Staelin (top right) graduated from UET in 2013 and moved to Chicago, where she worked as a stagehand across the city at a variety of theatres and production companies before moving to New York City, in 2015. Staelin freelanced for several Off-Broadway companies, as well as for television and events, before beginning to work with IATSE Local 1, in 2018.

* Dr. Harmon Delivers Invited Talk at World's Largest Annual Physics Conference

Dr. Harmon, Assistant Professor of Physics, gave an invited talk titled "Theory of Oblique-Field Magnetoresistance from Spin Centers in Three Terminal Spintronic Devices" at the American Physical Society's March Meeting on Monday (held virtually). The presentation was part of a symposium of invited talks named "Advances in Spin Transport and Proximity Near Nanoscale Interfaces and Materials". Dr. Harmon's presentation was concerned with clearing up a decade plus old conundrum in spintronics dealing with spin injection into semiconductors using a method called three-terminal detection. Experimental signatures which have been mistakenly interpreted as spin injection are in fact due to magnetic-field dependent hopping through magnet/semiconductor interfaces.

* Nerd Wars Champions Crowned

nerd wars winners.

The Honors Activity Board wishes to thank everyone who participated in Nerd Wars on Tuesday, March 16. Our hybrid in-person/virtual event included twenty-three teams of students, faculty, administrators and staff using their trivia knowledge to compete for the title of Nerd Wars Champions. Congratulations to the overall champions, a team of students known as “Ur Mom’s Favorite Nerds”, consisting of team members Elise Deeg, Anna Bury, Abby Watters, Kendyl Guzman, and Hope Miller. Also, congratulations to the top-finishing faculty team, “Consilience”, with team members Dr. Daniel Byrne, Dr. Kristie Hochwender, Dr. Ann Powell, Dr. John Stamm, and Dr. Joyce Stamm.

In addition to providing a night of trivia and entertainment, Nerd Wars is also a philanthropic event to benefit HACER, the Honors Program’s community service initiative. All proceeds from the event will support HACER. Nerd Wars participants also took time during the event to write thank you letters that will be delivered to local healthcare heroes.

As a final note, the Honors Program would like to take this opportunity to extend our appreciation for a team with a long-standing history of participation in Nerd Wars – known this year as “So Long and Thanks for all the Fish” but more commonly recognized as the “Enginerds”. Thank you for sharing your knowledge, camaraderie and support over the years.

Thanks to all for a fun evening, and we hope to see you again next year!

* Aces Back Home for Weekend Series with Butler

After opening MVC play at SIU last weekend, the University of Evansville baseball trip comes back home to open an 11-game homestand beginning with a weekend series against Butler on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at German American Bank Field at Charles H. Braun Stadium in Evansville.

Last Time Out: Evansville 7, SIU 3

  • In the series finale, the University of Evansville baseball team snapped a 19-game winning streak for No. 25 SIU with a 7-3 win over the Salukis on Sunday afternoon at Itchy Jones Stadium in Carbondale, Ill.
  • Great team win today. SIU was one of the hottest team I've ever ran into so it was great to see us show up and play at a high level," said Evansville head baseball coach Wes Carroll. "Great to see our offense get hits and execute when needed. Bullpen came up big to close out the game."
  • For the first time this series, Evansville scored first, pushing across a run as redshirt senior Troy Beilsmith scored on a groundout by junior Tanner Craig in the top of the first. In the bottom half of the first, freshman pitcher Donovan Schultz got off to a strong start with a pair of strikeouts.
  • SIU took the lead in the bottom of the third inning as the Salukis put together a three-run inning to open up a two run advantage on the Aces. Evansville responded in the top of the next inning, inching closer with a run on freshman Simon Scherry's fielder's choice that scored freshman Brent Widder.
  • The sixth inning was key for Evansville on both the offensive and defensive fronts. In the top half, the Aces opened the inning with a Widder walk.
  • Senior Ben Komonosky came to the plate next and delivered a double, advancing to third on an error, that scored Widder to tie the game at three.
  • Evansville was not finished in the inning as the next at bat saw Beilsmith drive a sacrifice fly to center that scored Komonosky and gave the Aces a 4-3 lead.
  • After Komonosky scored, Evansville scored two more runs in the inning on a double by freshman Mark Shallenberger and another sacrifice fly, this one coming from junior Mason Brinkley as UE took a 6-3 lead to the bottom of the sixth.
  • SIU threatened in the bottom half of the inning, placing runners on first and second with no outs.
  • Junior Erif Roberts responded, getting the Salukis to ground into a fielder's choice and striking-out a batter for the second out.
  • Roberts was replaced by Parks for what would be the final at-bat of the inning as Parks struck-out Ian Walters to end the inning.
  • Evansville padded-on an insurance run in the seventh as Widder opened the inning with a single and found his way home with an RBI single from Scherry.
  • Leading into the ninth, sophomore Michael Parks pitched valiantly, going 2.1 innings with just one hit and striking-out two.
  • In the bottom of the ninth, Evansville brought in closer Jakob Meyer, who continued his spectacular spring by sitting the Salukis down in order including an inning opening strikeout to secure the 7-3 win for Evansville.
  • The win for the Aces was the first for UE over SIU since May 27, 2016, snapping a 13-game win streak in the series for the Salukis.

Previewing the Matchup: Butler

  • Evansville and Southern Illinois are meeting 111th time when the two sides meet on Friday for the series opener with the Aces owning a 73-37 advantage in the all-time series.
  • Evansville has won 13-straight games over the Bulldogs, dating back to an 8-3 loss to Butler on March 7, 1997.
  • The Aces swept a three-game series from the Bulldogs a season ago, taking 8-3, 4-1, and 4-3 wins over Butler on Feb. 28, 29, & March 1, 2020 at Bosse Field.
  • Butler enters the weekend series with a 2-2 record after taking a game from Purdue Fort Wayne (2-0) and Depauw (16-4) so far this season.
  • Evansville has won both of its home series to start the season after taking 2-of-3 from NIU and 3-of-4 from Western Illinois.
  • The Aces look to make it back-to-back seasons winning three-straight home series with a series win this weekend.

Back on Track

  • After three losses to open the weekend at SIU, Evansville got back on track in its Sunday win over the Salukis.
  • On Sunday, Evansville recorded seven runs on 13 hits.
  • The 13 hits were tied for second-most on the season and the seven runs were the most for Evansville on the road this season.
  • The Aces did all this without generating many free bases, receiving only two walks and being hit by a pitch just twice.

Strong Debut for Roberts

  • Making his first start of the season for the Aces, Eric Roberts impressed with a strong day at the plate.
  • Roberts went 1-for-2 at the dish, recording a double and a RBI, while also scoring two runs and earning two walks in Friday's series opener at SIU.
