Bloomberg School of Public Health

Sophie Egan is the director of Programs and Culinary Nutrition for the Strategic Initiatives Group at The Culinary Institute of America. Based in San Francisco, Sophie is a contributor to The New York Times' Well blog, and has written about food and health for Time, The Wall Street Journal, Bon Appétit, WIRED and Sunset magazine, where she worked on "The Sunset Cookbook" and "The One-Block Feast" book. She holds a master of public health from the University of California, Berkeley, with a focus on health and social behavior, and a bachelor of arts with honors in history from Stanford University. In 2016, she was named one of the UC Global Food Initiative’s 30 Under 30.

About Devoured:

Americans’ food culture is constantly changing, and our eating habits are shaped by our values—mainly work, freedom and progress. In "Devoured," Sophie Egan explores not only how we think and feel about food, but also why we think and feel that way. What and how we eat says a lot about who we are; our diets are a mirror for our mind-sets. From eating lunch at our desks to obsessing about gluten to being enthralled by “stunt foods,” our habits range from devil-may-care to militant evangelism, and they offer insight into our lifestyles of overwork and compulsive individualism.

Chengbo Wang "Long time existence for semilinear wave equations…"
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM


Speaker: Chengbo Wang, (Zhejiang U) Title: Long time existence for semilinear wave equations on asymptotically flat space-times Abstract: In this talk, we will talk about the long time existence of solutions to semilinear wave equations of the form $(\partial_t^2-\Delta) u=|u|^p$, for small data with sufficient regularity and decay, on a large class of $(1+n)$-dimensional Lorentzian nonstationary asymptotically flat backgrounds $(M, g)$. Under the assumption that uniform energy bounds and a weak form of local energy estimates hold forward in time, we obtain the sharp lower bounds of the lifespan for three dimensional subcritical and four dimensional critical cases. For the most delicate three dimensional critical case ($p=p_c$), we obtain the existence result up to $\exp(c \epsilon^{-2(p-1)})$, for many space-times including the nontrapping exterior domain, nontrapping asymptotically Euclidean space and Schwarzschild black hole space-time.
Bogdan Gheorghe "Nilpotence and Perdiodicity in Motivic Homotopy Theory"
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM


Speaker: Bogdan Gheorghe,Wayne State University Abstract: Classically, it is proven by Devinatz-Hopkins-Smith that the complex cobordism spectrum MU detects nilpotence. Equivalently, one can use the whole family of Morava K-theories K(n) as their wedge sum sits in the same Bousfield class as MU. In the motivic setting one has analogous spectra, the algebraic cobordism spectrum is denoted by MGL and the motivic Morava K-theories by K(n). These spectra fail to detect nilpotence, for example because they do not see the periodic Hopf map eta. In this talk we will construct a motivic field spectrum K(η) that does detect eta, as well as discover a whole new infinite family of motivic periodicities denotes by wn. A central tool that we will explore is a motivic 2-cell complex known by the name of the cofiber of tau.
