"Being a part of UCDC has been such a worthwhile experience for both my professional and personal development. Even though I’ve studied history for the past four years, there’s nothing quite like exploring Washington, D.C. and seeing the places that shaped American history firsthand. I’m especially grateful that I got to spend my summer working at the National Archives in both the Exhibits and Education Departments. Even though I was initially overwhelmed by the vastness of the documents and artifacts stored at the National Archives, the staff and fellow interns immediately made me feel welcome. During my internship, I got to write my own exhibit labels, design an educational activity for museum visitors, and research some of the archive’s holdings for future exhibitions. I can certainly say that this experience has helped me envision a future in public history, and I’m so thankful to UCDC for this opportunity!" – Coryn Hardison Internships sparked the passion that led alumna Coryn Hardison ’19 (B.A. history ) to pursue @ucla as a master’s student in library sciences this fall.

“Getting a degree in German studies at UCI helped prepare me for my career in so many ways. Not only did I train with and work together with deeply passionate professors who went out of their way to assist me in both my research and development as a teacher, but I was also able to make connections with scholars across the country through different opportunities available to me. I also took advantage of other great programs such as the Pedagogical Fellows program which helped me connect with great teachers and researchers across many disciplines. All of which helped me to get a position at one of the top liberal arts colleges in the country.” - Jaime W. Roots, Ph.D. '16 On #GermanLanguageDay , meet Jaime W. Roots who is currently a visiting assistant professor at @wlunews in Virginia.

#FelineFriday 🐈🦠 Domestic cats, like many other mammals, use smelly secretions from anal sacs to mark territory and communicate with other animals. A new study from the Genome Center at the University of California, Davis, shows that many odiferous compounds from a male cat are actually made not by the cat, but by a community of bacteria living in the anal sacs. The work is published Sept. 13 in PLOS ONE. “Cats use a lot of volatile chemicals for signaling, and they probably don’t make them all,” said David Coil, project scientist at the Genome Center and an author on the paper. Many species — including cats, dogs, bears, pandas, skunks and hyenas — use anal sac secretions as a chemical language. Skunks, of course, also use them as a means of defense.

⁠⠀ “Living halfway across the world by myself for four weeks in a foreign country proved to me that I could truly be independent, and I feel like that experience matured me in many ways. I am also a very introverted person, but studying abroad has made me more social and realize that I really like meeting new people. I think studying abroad was one of the happiest times of my life, because I was truly free from stress, and every day I could wake up early looking forward to doing something new. So my advice (though cliche ) is do it, because you'll have the time of your life!” - Crystal Jin, Computer Science and Music major 🐻 ⁠⠀ — 📸 by @ucbstudyabroad ⁠⠀

The UC Los Angeles Snapshot is here! UC Los Angeles continues to be a big draw for many college-bound applicants although there was a slight dip in applications submitted for the Fall 2019 semester: "One century. 14 Nobel Prizes. 261 Olympic Medals. And 13 MacArthur Fellows. UCLA has the numbers—but we’re about much more than numbers. Through a century of optimism, this university has done some incredible things. For example, our faculty and alumni helped invent a little thing known as the internet—and we’ve since created over 140 companies using technology developed on-campus. UCLA’s optimism is more than just a sunny disposition. It’s in our DNA. Underneath the clear Californian skies, in one of the world’s biggest cities, you’ll find 40,000 staff and students, each looking to redefine what’s possible."

너와 나의 서울 (You and my Seoul )⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ 💘⁠⠀ I feel like I'm leaving a piece of my soul here as i get ready to go back home :-(⁠⠀ —⁠⠀ Studying abroad in South Korea was an experience I’m so so soo grateful for. I met some really great people from places around the world. From next door in other states and in Canada, to Europe and Asia, I met so many people. With native Koreans, sometimes I had to use my very, very limited Korean to talk, which would not always work. Often we would have to communicate in two different languages. It wasn’t easy sometimes, but these were very minor challenges in the majorly fruitful trip. 🙋‍♂️🙋‍♀️💁‍♂️🍨🍰🍧🍪🍩🥧🤷‍♀️🙍‍♂️😭 (eventually i did get what i wanted to order tho )⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ I think UCI students should study abroad (or at least contemplate it ) because of what you’re able to learn and experience. I improved my independence, interpersonal communication, and flexibility. Living day to day, situation to situation, and outside of comfort was a fun and unforgettable adventure✨⁠⠀ Another big thing that makes study abroad great is the travel! Sightseeing, trying foods, and exploring. I did more this summer than all my past summers combined😍🍽 Seeing things I thought I would never see: I went up the 6th tallest building in the world (Lotte Tower ), went to Gyeongbokgung Palace, I was even able to see some of my favorite artists close up (Ailee DPRlive and Woojin ily ). All while fulfilling my degree requirements back at UCI. ⁠⠀ Don’t let the price stop you. I didn’t think I would have the money to do this, but I found the resources and help. There are resources out there to help fund your endeavors. Studying abroad is worth it. ✈️⁠⠀ —⁠⠀ — 📸 by @etangerine via @hey imjonathan⁠⠀ ⁠⠀

UC Irvine is next up in our line-up for UC campuses: "UC Irvine does things a little differently. It’s the youngest member of the prestigious Association of American Universities. And it gets the best of both worlds in Orange County—near SoCal’s sunny shores and flourishing tech coast. Actually, everything about Irvine is a bit different—even the anteater mascot. It’s a university that goes against the grain, and reinvents the American dream. You see, education here isn’t serving the selected few—it’s for all. Study here, and become one of Irvine’s independent thinkers. Our campus has the friendly feel of a small college, enlivened by a hugely diverse research community."

While pancreatic cancer accounts for only 3 percent of cancers nationwide, 91 percent of patients succumb to the illness within five years of diagnosis. The problem is compounded because pancreatic cancer isn’t detectable until its late stages, when it’s spread to other organs.

The Asian citrus psyllid (Diaphorina citri ) is the bogeyman of the citrus industry. Its appearance in fields is a dark harbinger for farmers, for carried within this insect is the bacteria Candidatus Liberibacter, the cause of citrus greening disease. “This is a worldwide problem,” said Distinguished Professor Walter Leal, Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, who’s devoted his research to combating citrus greening. In Leal’s home country of Brazil, the state of São Paulo has eradicated around one-fourth of its citrus trees since 2004 in an attempt to control citrus greening outbreaks. China’s been hit with the disease, as has the United States. In California—which produced 51 percent of Unites State’s citrus during the 2018-2019 season—about 1,100 cases of citrus greening have been reported in urban orchards. “This is the most serious problem to citriculture throughout the world, because the psyllid is very effective in transmitting it from infected to non-infected plants,” said Leal. “And the bug is ‘invisible’ until the population is too high and too late to act.” While infections haven’t yet hopped to California’s commercial orchards, Leal and his colleagues aren’t waiting. In a study published in Scientific Reports, they report that an acetic acid-based, slow-release trap is capable of capturing Asian citrus psyllids even when the insect populations are low. The team worked with the pest management company ChemTica Internacional to design the sticky, chemical lure trap.

UC Berkeley Snapshot The University of California Counselor Conference gave College4Careers an inside look at the admissions process for Fall 2020 applicants and the next 10 days we are giving you a peek behind the curtain of all 9 of the undergraduate campuses starting with Berkeley...

We are so grateful for the opportunity to have met some of the core members of Sigma Psi Zeta who helped lay the foundation for our sisterhood at our 2019 National Convention this year! One of our Epsilons, Allison "Austri" Yao (Spring '18 ), had the pleasure of meeting one of our Psi Sisters, alumna Glenda "Speed" (Spring '96 ) of our Alpha Chapter at SUNY Albany. The Psi Sister Award is a highly selective honor, recognizing sisters who have gone above and beyond in their dedication to the sorority and in exemplifying the Ten Rays of Sisterhood — and it was created by Glenda herself in 2000, when she was National President! Glenda actually became a recipient of the award in 2015, 16 years after establishing our sorority's National Philanthropy of combating violence against women in its various forms. It was an honor meeting and getting to know the sister whose efforts gave rise to the causes that we all hold dear, and continue to strive to uphold to this day. Thank you, Glenda, for all your contributions to our sorority, and for embodying the essence of our motto "Lead from the Front"! ❤️💛 __________ #SigmaPsiZeta #SYZ #ΣΨΖ #Sorority #Greek #GreekLife #AlphaIota #ΑΙ #Charter #UCBerkeley #UofCalifornia #UniversityofCalifornia #Berkeley #Cal #SYZ25Years #SYZJourneyto25 #National #Convention #NationalConvention #Psi #Sister #PsiSister #Albany #UniversityatAlbany #UAlbany #SUNYAlbany #philanthropy #sisterhood #RaysofSisterhood #LeadFromtheFront

Stuck in 405 traffic to or from Los Angeles? You can thank Billy Garland. There’s been little fanfare or even documentation about the real estate tycoon who put Los Angeles as we know it on the map. That is, until now. In his forthcoming book, Dreamers and Schemers: How an Improbable Bid for the 1932 Olympics Transformed Los Angeles from Dusty Outpost to Global Metropolis (University of California Press, 2019 ), UCI professor and literary journalism program director Barry Siegel has brought to life a man and a world that had previously been buried in history.

Sexual determination and differentiation work in myriad ways across the animal kingdom. In vertebrates, like mammals and fish, sexual determination leads to the development of either ovaries or testis. These organs then secrete hormones that go on to govern the sexual development of the rest of the organism’s body. Insects are a completely different beast. “The way that insects develop male versus female characteristics is using different kinds of RNA splicing and processing,” said Judy Wexler, who graduated from UC Davis in 2018 with a Ph.D. in Population Biology. “The same genes are used to direct male development or female development; it’s just how those genes and RNA are processed that will tell a cell, ‘You’re a male cell, or you’re a female cell.’” According to Wexler, insects are the only known animal to perform sexual determination and differentiation via this toggle-like system, which makes use of the biological phenomenon known as “alternative splicing.” Even their closest arthropod relatives, crustaceans, don’t use this sexual development strategy. So it begs the question, how old is the splicing-based mode of sexual differentiation? In a study appearing in eLife, Wexler and her colleagues, including Kopp, trace this splicing-based sexual development strategy to hemimetabolous insect orders, or those that develop from larvae to adults without a pupal stage. These types of insects are more ancient than holometabolous insects, which have a pupal stage. “The main finding from all of the insects we studied is that together, they represent an intermediate state between what we know to be true in crustaceans and then what we know to be true about sexual development in holometabolous insects,” said Wexler. “These three hemimetabolous insects we studied gave us a snapshot of what the evolution of that sexual differentiation pathway could have looked like.” Learn more via link in bio 📷1: Pixabay 📷2: CDC 📷3: Erwin Huebner/University of Manitoba . . . . . #RNA #PopulationBiology #Evolution #Insects #WomenInSTEM #Biology #BiologicalSciences #UniversityofCalifornia #UofCalifornia #STEM http://bit.ly/ancientinsects

⁠⠀ "If you have the opportunity to meet South Africans in your classes, do it! While it's easy to stick with other UCEAP or American students, classes can be one of the best ways to meet South African students. They can offer advice on classwork, places to visit, and local foods to try! Studying abroad in Cape Town is a once in a lifetime opportunity, so why not make the most of it! Whether it be trying different types of foods or going on exciting excursions, Cape Town has so much offer to study abroad students. Lastly, food is cheap in Cape Town, so you can try a wide variety of local and exotic foods, even on a budget." - Alana Lopez-Koen, Development Studies major. 🐻⁠⠀ — 📸 by @ucbstudyabroad ⁠⠀

“This summer I interned abroad at an NGO, Hong Kong-America Center, in Hong Kong as a recipient of the 2019 Cultural Vistas Fellowship. At this internship placement, I worked within the realms of digital communications, social media, and public relations as my work was tailored to primarily focus on revamping and redesigning the Center’s website and social media platforms. By curating sets of images to generate and document the Center’s programs/events through photography and videography, this work offered me the opportunity to actively engage with and learn more about the best ways to utilize multimedia platforms to showcase information in visually capturing, innovative ways that create and maintain ongoing relationships with local and transnational communities.” – Sarah Rodriguez Sarah Rodriguez, a film and media studies major, received a Film and Media Studies Summer Internship Award, which lead her to an NGO in the city of Hong Kong.

“There are very few opportunities built in to graduate curricula that allow Ph.D.s to engage in public-facing work. The NHC Podcast Workshop brought together a community of like-minded humanists eager to bridge the divide between the academy and broader public. It was freeing to be in a supportive space where you were not only encouraged to step outside your intellectual comfort zone by working collaboratively across disciplines, but to also engage in a creative process of trial and error. Looking ahead, I’m hoping to share the skillsets I developed at the NHC Podcast Workshop with my colleagues in the history department. I am currently in the process of creating a podcast that invites history graduate students to interview our Ph.D. alumni. This will allow our current Ph.D. students to develop technical skillsets in public history, while also highlighting the diverse and innovative work of our alumni.” - Stephanie Narrow The UCI Humanities Center (formerly Humanities Commons ) sponsored five graduate students to attend the @natlhumanities ’ Podcast Workshop. Stephanie Narrow, a Ph.D. student in history, shares her experience and how it inspired her to create a podcast that invites history graduate students to interview our Ph.D. alumni.
