You are invited to attend a Special Colloquiium by DR. HOWARD STEIGER, Director, Eating Disorders Program, Douglas Institute Professor, Psychiatry Department, McGill University. Sponsored by the School of Dietetics and Human Nutrition.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Join the Mac Clan for the annual celebration of the birth of Sir William Macdonald, who founded Macdonald College in 1906!
If you ride the inter-campus shuttle bus, you've probably found yourself waiting at the stop and wondering when it will arrive -- especially in these frigid January temperatures. Now you don't have to guess...
The McGill Shuttle Bus Tracker is a mobile-friendly website that uses Google Maps to show you the location of each bus along its route, and how fast it's moving.
Twenty teams of Lumberjacks and Jills from eight universities in Eastern Canada and the United States will test their mettle at the 55th annual Intercollegiate Woodsmen Competition, Saturday January 24 at McGill’s Macdonald Campus in Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue.
Wood chips will fly as over 100 competitors vie for individual, doubles and team honours in traditional woodsmen events that include axe throwing, log rolling, pole climbing, water boil, snowshoe race and more. The events are a showcase of Canada’s rich history in forestry as celebrated by a whole new generation of lumberjacks.
Special seminar by Dr. Elsa Vasseur, Research Associate, Organic Dairy Research Center, University of Guelph
All Staff and Students are encouraged to attend.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER:
Research led by Prof François Barthelat in the Department of Mechanical Engineering earned a spot on Quebec's list of top 10 scientific discoveries in 2014. Inspired by natural structures like seashells, Barthelat and his team developed a technique to strengthen glass. They were able to make glass 200 times more resistant to breakage by engraving micro-cracks in wavy configurations on its surface. The pattern of micro-cracks guided larger cracks and absorbed impact energy.
