Journalists and scientists to talk about communication as a critical element of science

TEMPE, Ariz. — Some of the nation’s leading scientists and science journalists will present their perspectives on the roles of scientists and engineers in popular communication during a symposium April 2 at Arizona State University titled “Essential Dialogues: Why Scientists and Engineers Must Not Speak in Tongues.”

The symposium, sponsored by the Hendricks Family Foundation, is one of several activities planned this spring to mark the official launch of ASU’s School of Earth and Space Exploration, a groundbreaking endeavor in higher education that fuses Earth and space sciences with engineering.

“In today’s world, there can be no true ‘literacy’ without scientific literacy,” says Kip Hodges, professor and founding director of the school. “People need a basic understanding of how the universe works and how scientific principles inform the development of new technologies. And there can be no better ambassador for science and technology than a scientist or an engineer who can explain the importance of their work to non-specialists.”

The School of Earth and Space Exploration will make popular science and engineering communication an essential part of both the graduate and undergraduate curricula, according to Hodges. “In order to underscore this mission, we’ve gathered some of the nation’s top science writers and scientists to talk about how scientists and engineers can be most effective in how they communicate,” he says.

Among the speakers is Robert Irion, director of the science communication program at the University of California-Santa Cruz, who will address the theme of the symposium head on with his talk “Scientists as Journalists: Training the Next Generation.” Irion, who has an undergraduate degree in Earth and planetary sciences from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a graduate certificate from the UC-Santa Cruz program, is co-author of the award-winning book One Universe: At Home in the Cosmos. He also received the 2003 David Schramm Award in Science Journalism from the American Astronomical Society for a story in Science magazine about neutron stars.

Natalie Angier, a Pulitzer-Prize winning New York Times science journalist and non-fiction author, will talk about “Scientists and Journalists: Can’t We All Just Get Along?” The Barnard College graduate studied English, physics and astronomy while in college and dreamed of starting a popular magazine about science for intelligent lay readers. Instead, at the age of 22, she was hired as a founding staff reporter and writer for Discover, the science magazine that Time Inc. launched in 1980. Angier is the author of four books; her newest due out this spring is The Canon: A Whirligig Tour of the Beautiful Basics of Science, which she will talk about at a reception from noon to 1 p.m. April 3 in the Virginia G. Piper Writers House at ASU.

Charles Petit, who has covered science for more than 35 years as a newspaper, news magazine and freelance writer, will present his perspective in a talk titled “The Science Beat: News that Really is New.” Petit’s career includes 26 years at the San Francisco Chronicle and several years on staff at U.S. News & World Report. His recent work has appeared in National Geographic, Smithsonian Magazine and The New York Times. While he was at U.S. News, the American Association for the Advancement of Science awarded him its magazine science writing award for a set of articles on fusion research, on the first peopling of the Americas and on the computer adaptation of evolution as an engineering tool. Petit has a degree in astronomy from the University of California-Berkeley.

Seth Shostak, the senior astronomer at the SETI Institute, has written several hundred popular magazine and Web articles on various topics in astronomy, technology, film and television. He has an undergraduate degree in physics from Princeton University and a doctorate in astronomy from the California Institute of Technology. For much of his career, Shostak conducted radio astronomy research on galaxies, and has published nearly 60 papers in professional journals. Each week he hosts the SETI Institute’s science radio show “Are We Alone?” broadcast on Discovery Channel Radio. His talk at the symposium is titled “Science Searches for Extraterrestrials.”

Tom Levenson, an award winning writer-producer, is an associate professor of science writing at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Author of several books, including the acclaimed biography Einstein in Berlin, Levenson also is a Peabody and Emmy award-winning documentary filmmaker who has produced a number of prime-time science documentaries. He has had several articles and reviews published in The Atlantic Monthly, The Boston Globe, Discover and The Sciences. Levenson, who has an undergraduate degree from Harvard University, will present the talk “Against ‘Science Literacy.’”

The symposium will be held from 8 to 11:30 a.m. in the Biodesign Institute Auditorium, B Building, on ASU’s Tempe campus.

Also planned as part of the official launch activities is a second symposium titled “Emerging Vistas: The New Golden Age of Exploration.” Scheduled from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. April 10, this symposium includes international leaders in field-based scientific research as well as space and undersea exploration. The symposium will be held in the Biodesign Institute Auditorium, B Building, on ASU’s Tempe campus. It will be followed by a reception and official launch ceremony with ASU President Michael M. Crow at 4:30 p.m. in the Administration Building A Courtyard.

An evening lecture – “Lunar Field Exploration: the Post-Shoemaker Era” – will be presented at 7:30 April 10 in Armstrong Hall by Harrison H. Schmitt, an Apollo astronaut and former U.S. senator. Schmitt will receive the Shoemaker Memorial Award, presented by BEYOND, ASU’s Center for Fundamental Concepts in Science.

All events are free and open to the public. Seating is limited and reservations are recommended. Registration and additional information are available at sese.asu.edu or (480) 965-5081.

Las Vegas' Ongoing Campaign Targeting New Jersey Biotech and Life Science Businesses

Las Vegas' Ongoing Campaign Targeting New Jersey Biotech and Life Science Businesses Attracts Response From State Business Development Center


Nevada Development Authority Launches Next Phase of Campaign Targeting New Jersey Businesses

LAS VEGAS, March 05, 2007 The Nevada Development Authority (NDA) begins the third phase of their business recruitment campaign that initially launched last August. The main thrust of the New Jersey campaign is aimed at targeting biotech and life science companies to relocate to Las Vegas. The ongoing NDA campaign promoting Las Vegas' pro-business environment and high- tech infrastructure has generated strong business interest and a recent rebuttal from some of New Jersey's business development officials.





In early February, the New Jersey Small Business Development Center (NJSBDC) distributed postcards to hundreds of New Jersey politicians and business leaders to dissuade local businesses from relocating to Las Vegas. The front of the postcard depicted a circle-and-slash no-entry sign that crossed out the word "Nevada." The front of the postcard stated, "Stay in New Jersey. NJSBDC will help you grow." The back of the card read, "When other states come knocking on your door to relocate your business-tell them where to go. Don't gamble with the future of your business," and "Businesses MADE in New Jersey STAY in New Jersey."

"Since we started our New Jersey campaign we've had many inquiries from businesses wanting to know more about Las Vegas. It seems to be working more on a grassroots level than we had initially thought. Now we're getting a totally different response from the business development side, which is combating our efforts," said Somer Hollingsworth, president and CEO of NDA. "We've seen this type of response before from business development in California where we've campaigned in the past. I think business development people are very territorial and they get nervous when they know they can't compete with Las Vegas and its pro-business environment, no personal income tax and no state corporate taxes."

In October 2006, to further Las Vegas' marketing campaign in New Jersey, NDA sent specialized Las Vegas Relocation Kits to a large number of the state's biotech and life science companies. The relocation kits promoted the benefits of living and conducting business in Las Vegas. NDA's goal was educating company presidents and CEOs with information on Las Vegas and its high-tech infrastructure, medical research and technology facilities and local foreign trade zone.

"Despite the refuting message from New Jersey, NDA plans to persist with future campaigns," said Hollingsworth. "The objective is to let companies know that Las Vegas is one of the best places in the country to do business. Our goal is to continue recruiting the rich biotech and life sciences industries on the eastern seaboard."

The new phase of the campaign will take the same approach, promoting a long list of top reasons to relocate or expand to Las Vegas.

Reasons to relocate or expand from the eastern region of the U.S. to Las Vegas:


1. Business-friendly state and local government
2. No state corporate income tax
3. No personal income tax
4. Excellent state incentives
5. Educated, expanding and cost-effective workforce
6. Best economic growth in the United States
7. America's finest telecommunications and technology infrastructure
8. Harry Reid 115-acre Research Technology Building
9. UNLV Science, Engineering and Technology Building
10. UNLV Supercomputing facility
11. Nevada Cancer Institute
12. Lou Ruvo Brain Institute
13. The Nevada Neurosciences Institute
14. Very dependable, expanding energy base
15. McCarran International Airport - America's 5th largest
16. Foreign Trade Zone #89


The mission of Nevada Development Authority is to attract, retain and expand the business base to enhance the overall socioeconomic environment of Southern Nevada. Established in Las Vegas in 1956, the NDA is Southern Nevada's largest economic development agency and contributes to the area's prosperity by attracting new companies and assisting local companies in expansion projects.

Biotech Industry Leaders Convene for First Ever Biotechnology Conference Held in Italy

Biotech Industry Leaders Convene for First Ever Biotechnology Conference Held in Italy

More than 1100 biotechnology executives from around the world were treated to a positive outlook from industry leaders as the first annual BIO-Europe Spring conference opened today in Milan, Italy. BIO-Europe Spring is the first ever global biotechnology conference held in Italy.

Reflecting the biotech industry's positive trajectory worldwide, Italy showcased its growing muscle as an industry hub. Commenting on Italy's biotechnology development, Dr. Roberto Spingardi, head of inward investment for InvestInItaly, the nation's organization for promoting investment: "Promoting Italian life sciences has been one of InvestInItaly's key priorities since the biotech sector has become strategic on a global scale. Italy is showing increasing growth and potential. For example, we recently supported two successful agreements between Italian and US companies: Tristar-IOM (Istituto Oncologico dell Mediterraneo) and Immunicon-Molmed."

Dr. Spingardi's comments were roundly supported by new data unveiled today in a 2007 report on the Italian biotech industry. According to the report the industry is now comprised of 222 companies, with over 4 billion euros in revenue, 1.2 billion euros in R&D investment and more than 14,000 employees, of whom almost one third engaged in R&D and a pipeline of over 40 products in an advanced stage of development of which 9 are already in phase 3. The report was conducted by Blossom Associati on behalf of Assobiotec, the Italian Bioindustry Association.

Roberto Gradnik, President of Assobiotec, called the data "very exciting." In his words: "The Italian biotech train departed in 2000 and, with every year, gathers ever-greater speed. Our industry has overcome obstacles that might have appeared insurmountable and now stands on a par with that of leading European countries. It is being driven by a system comprising companies, science parks and researchers, all characterized by high doses of dynamism and innovation."

According to Carola Schropp, Managing Partner of EBD Group, "We at BIO-Europe Spring are pleased that we can play a part in supporting the Italian biotech industry by holding our meeting in Milan. It should be clear to all after this conference that Italy is emerging as a preferred location for biotech development."
