Green Dot Bystander Training for Faculty and Staff

The Green Dot Bystander Training for faculty and staff will take place from 9 a.m. to noon, Thursday, May 30 in the Education, Health and Human Sciences Building Room 441. This three-hour training takes a deeper dive into the elements of the Green Dot Bystander Intervention program, focusing specifically on the vital role university employees play in establishing and reinforcing campus culture. The program will help employees understand the expanded role of "bystander" and equip university employees to integrate within their current job functions key behaviors that establish two norms:

  • Power-based personal violence won't be tolerated;
  • Everyone — including faculty, staff and administrators — does their part to keep the campus community free from violence and fear of violence.

This training is hands-on and action-oriented. Email greendot@uidaho.edu by May 28 to sign up.

U of I Study Finds Scientific Reproducibility Does Not Equate to Scientific Truth

Reproducible scientific results are not always true and true scientific results are not always reproducible, according to a mathematical model produced by University of Idaho researchers. Their study, which simulates the search for that scientific truth, was published Wednesday, May 15, in the journal PLOS ONE. Independent confirmation of scientific results — known as reproducibility — lends credibility to a researcher’s conclusion. But researchers have found the results of many well-known science experiments cannot be reproduced, an issue referred to as a “replication crisis.” Read more.

Ouch! Don’t Get Stung!

The risk from bees, wasps and other stinging insects can be a year-round threat. Their activity often peaks in late summer, a prime time for getting stung while on the job or off the clock. A well-known aggressive stinging insect is the yellow-jacket, a yellow and black wasp resembling a bee, but with a narrower body and no fuzz. Because they often build their nests underground, it can be easy to accidentally stumble over their homes, causing them to become agitated. They can be more aggressive than bees and may even sting without being provoked. Visit the I-Safety page for more information or call Environmental Health and Safety at 208-885-6524.

University of Idaho Research Hits Science Magazine

The cover of Science Magazine currently features an important discovery made by an international research team: deep-sea fish can see more than just one color. When a Switzerland- and Australia-based research team recently needed to validate their findings regarding what colors of light a deep-sea fish species could see at up to 1,500 meters below the surface, they turned to scientists at the University of Idaho. Biological Sciences Research Assistant Professor and CMCI Modeling Fellow Jagdish Patel and Biological Sciences Professors Deborah Stenkamp and Celeste Brown used Patel's newly developed computational molecular simulation based approach to generate a mathematical model to predict color sensitivity.
