Event Description

The next cafe discussion is made possible with support from a grant from NOVA/WGBH. It is a lead-in to the upcoming four part PBS special relating to Materials Science - "Making Stuff: Stronger, Smaller, Smarter, Cleaner". Beginning January 19, 2011, NOVA will premiere this new four-hour series on consecutive Wednesday nights at 9 pm ET/PT on PBS (check local listings).

Professor Sharvan Kumar from the School of Engineering, Brown University, has generously agreed to come to Branford and tell us about Aircraft Engines: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow. He has provided a brief outline for the afternoon:

"The desire to fly faster, fuel efficient and more comfortable/quieter aircrafts has placed an unprecedented demand on new materials for aircraft engines. Aircraft engines use a variety of materials for the different components within the engine, depending on whether they are rotating or static parts, and whether they are in the front or aft of the combustion chamber. Engine manufacturers have become incredibly innovative with engine design and material usage. To a significant extent, processing technology has played a key role in enabling these innovations and designs. However, the current materials used in the engine are operating at close to their melting temperatures and the quest for new materials that can operate the engine hotter has been underway and is one of the biggest technological challenges in Materials Science. In this discussion/presentation, I will highlight the anatomy of a jet engine, identify the parts we will focus on, and then outline some of the enabling technologies as we transition from the early engines through the current day engine, and the kind of thinking that is evolving from a Materials standpoint and design standpoint for the engines in the twenty-first century."

An Open Streets Family Reunion: Reflections from the 2018 Open Streets Summit

By Ryan O’Connor, Director of Programs, 8 80 Cities Recently 8 80 Cities wrote a blog post about open streets being a labour of love. That being the case, the 2018 Open Streets Summit in New Orleans felt like a family reunion of sorts. It was rejuvenating to see old and new friends who share our passion for open streets and are working tirelessly to create healthier, happier, and more connected communities across the world. The event, which took place on September 15-16, brought together more than 50 leaders who currently organize open streets programs or are interested in bringing the...

When “Hoops in the Hood” Became “Hoops in the House”

When Covid-19 came to Chicago, Hoops in the Hood, LISC's long-running basketball-community-building-and-safety program, morphed into the perfect antidote for quarantine stress and boredom. Now, hundreds of kids and their parents across the city are staying active, and logging their exercise minutes, in a true Chicago-style competition between neighborhoods.

Our Communities Need a Marshall Plan

In his latest video message, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones reflects on the disproportionate health and economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on underinvested communities and communities of color, and calls for a 21st-century Marshall Plan—intensive and broad investment that will both help people and enterprises recover, and redress the inequities that set the stage for the fallout of the current crisis.

We Have Reached the Housing Cliff

As we look back on Affordable Housing Month, marked every year in May, it's clear that the need for safe, affordable housing—as well as the threats to providing it—have never been more acute. Denise Scott, LISC's EVP for Programs, makes a compelling case for why, during the Covid era and beyond, we need a robust national plan to safeguard homes for all of our country's vulnerable residents, as well as for the organizations that make those homes possible.
