COASTAL STUDIES

COASTAL STUDIES INSTITUTE ANNOUNCES 2015 DASH SYMPOSIUM UNC Coastal Studies Institute is pleased to announce the return of DASH (Design+Art+Science +Humanities), a bi-annual, three-day academic symposium exploring the intersection of art and science this October 1-3 at various Outer Banks venues. The event series is being produced in partnership with the East Carolina University School of Art and Design, College of the Albemarle, Dare County Arts Council, Pocosin Arts and is sponsored by the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau and the Town of Manteo. Established in 2013 by the University of North Carolina’s Coastal Studies Institute in Wanchese, NC, the DASH Symposium will examine the art and science of waves and the vehicles humans use to navigate them in the 2015 Boats and Boards, Ripples and Waves program. This year’s keynote speaker is the incomparable Reuben Margolin, an American-born artist and sculptor known for his mechanically driven kinetic sculptures of wave-forms. His work has garnered international acclaim and speaks directly to the interchange between the art and science of waves. A presentation of his work can be seen here at a 2012 TED Conference.

Dear Dr. Crime Dr. Crime is a pseudonym for a social scientist holding a Ph.D. degree in sociology and in criminology. He has worked in all major parts of the criminal justice system. Drop him a note at the website www.keepkidshome.net If you or your child is in trouble, he may be able to help, give him a call (2523390000) Dear Dr. Crime: How many people are on Death Row? Reader Dear Reader. At the end of 2013, combining state and federal statistics, we had 2,979 prisoners awaiting execution. The chances of being executed were low, as last year only 35 were executed. The states all use lethal injection to execute. Dear Dr. Crime: My daughter married a bum, a really rotten fellow and I am afraid he will hurt the kids or my daughter. I think he drinks too much. Do things like that happen as often as our TV suggests? Scared Parent Dear Scared: The US Bureau of Justice Statistics tells us that what you are afraid of was 11% of all violence from 1998 to 2002, and about half were against a husband or wife. Of those assaults, murder was less than half of 1%. The numbers are falling. Dear Dr. Crime: I am a good looking woman, what are my chances of being raped? Hot Chick Dear lady: You have a high chance. One in five women will be raped at some point in their life. Men don’t have that risk as only one in 71 men will be raped. You reduce your chances by being with other people and using common sense. Adding up all cost, each rape cost $151,423. What is really sad is that one in four girls and one in six boys will be sexually abused before they turn 18 years old, often by family members. I get really mad at bullies, and the worse of all are the bums that hurt little kids.
