Lubi Kutua '04
Kutua '04 Building NMR
Lubi Kutua ’04, a physics and math major, has dedicated 10 weeks of his summer vacation to science research under the direction of Assistant Professor of Physics Gordon Jones. Kutua has been working on a theory that many medical scientists are currently researching, involving the use of MRIs. Scientists hope that they will be able to use polarized helium gas to complete tests on patients that could previously only be done by use of the MRI. Kutua has been building a device, called a nuclear magnetic resonator (NMR), that will measure the amount of polarized helium gas in an area. Kutua had taken an electrics class previously that he enjoyed, so he approached both Professor Jones and Associate Professor of Physics Brian Collett about doing summer research. While research is probably not in Kutua’s future plans, he feels this was a very beneficial experience. More ...
Joe Smith '04 works on dribbling skills with the campers
Tom Murphy Hosts Continental Basketball Day Camp
Over the previous two weeks the Margaret Bundy Scott Field House was the home to almost 200 boys for the annual Continental Basketball Day Camp at Hamilton College. Head men’s basketball coach Tom Murphy is the camp director and was joined by assistant coaches at Hamilton College, Stan Evans, Randie Torgalski. The one-week session for boys entering grades 5-8 ends August 2, with a one-week camp for boys entering grades 9-12 began Monday, August 5. The campers worked on individual skills and station drills in the mornings, play full games, attend lectures and swim in the afternoons. More ...
Day Trippers

Andy Morgan '04 and Professor Johnson
Morgan '04 and Johnson Study Lip Reading
Andy Morgan ’04, a psychology major, has devoted 10 weeks of his summer vacation to science research under the direction of Visiting Instructor of Psychology Jennifer Johnson. Morgan has been studying the correlation between lip reading and dynamic spatial reasoning. It is hypothesized that the large discrepancy in an individual’s ability to lip read is related to one’s ability to see multiple things happen at once, or to be able to spatially reason. At this point in the process, Morgan is generating stimuli and possible tests that could be run to prove the theory. The ultimate goal of his research is to find a way to teach people to dynamically spatially reason, which would then have an impact on their ability to lip read. Morgan is highly interested in this research and hopes to be able to continue working on the project into the fall, when tests would actually be run. More ...

Barbara Smalley '83 Finishes Ironman Triathlon
Barbara Smalley ‘83 competed in the 2002 Ironman USA, Lake Placid, on July 28. An Ironman competition consists of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile run. The Lake Placid Ironman is one of only four officially sanctioned Ironman North America events. Smalley competed for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training (TNT). TNT has raised millions of dollars toward finding cures for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma. Smalley finished the swim in 1:12:47, the bike in 7:45:25 and the run in 5:47:24, crossing the finish line just after 10 p.m. More ...
Georges and McEnroe Promoted

Christophre Georges, an associate professor in the economics department, and John McEnroe, an associate professor of art, were promoted effective July 1. In promoting Professors Georges and McEnroe, President Tobin acted on the recommendations of Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of Faculty David Paris, the elected faculty members of the Committee on Appointments, senior colleagues in the departments of economics and art, past and current students and a group of nationally recognized scholars.  More ...

Ava Bromberg '02
Chemistry and Ceramics Combine in Summer Research Project
In the summer of 2001, Ava Bromberg '02, with the support of an Emerson Grant, completed a project titled "Glaze Chemistry: Where Art Melts with Science, an Interdisciplinary Exploration." Working with Professor Robert Palusky from the art department and Associate Professor Karen Brewer from chemistry, Bromberg performed a time-consuming and somewhat tedious battery of tests on hundreds of ceramic tiles. In an attempt to find viable substitutes for commonly used glazes that are becoming increasingly scarce, she used hundreds of test glazes. In researching possible substitutes for these glazes, Bromberg varied temperatures and materials as she fired thousands of test tiles. She examined the chemical compositon of the glazes in conjunction with the structure and performance of the inorganic oxides, essential for providing color. More ...
