Hamilton Teams Compete in First Long Boat Regatta
Twelve Hamilton students competed in the AWA Long Lake Long Boat Regatta on Saturday, Sept. 26. The students raced four-person canoes 10 miles, against Paul Smith College and Colgate University, in the first New York State College Canoe Championship. Andrew Jillings, Hamilton director of outdoor leadership, and Brian McDonnell, regatta organizer, added the college division of the race this year.

2009 HANSA Fellows Begin Agency Work
The second class of the Hamilton Alliance for Nonprofit Strategic Advancement (HANSA) has been selected and the four student program fellows have begun work with their agencies. The HANSA program, launched in 2008, partners with non-profit agencies in the Mohawk Valley on specific projects and staffs the agencies with student fellows interested in pursuing non-profit leadership roles.

Program in Washington students follow the path of a home run at a Nationals' game.
See ya!
Students in the Program in Washington took time out to enjoy an evening of the national pastime on September 22. The Nationals lost a squeaker to the Los Angeles Dodgers, 14-2, but a good time was had by all. Here the group watches Washington’s Adam Dunn crush his 38th homerun, into the Nationals bullpen.

Washington Program Students Discuss Election Topics With Marc Elias '90
Students in the Program in Washington D.C. met last week with Marc Elias '90, partner in Perkins Coie LLP. Elias, a nationally recognized expert in election and campaign finance law, served as general counsel for the Kerry for President Campaign in 2004 and represented Al Franken in the recount of the Minnesota Senate election.

Nathaniel Taylor '11 Studies Effectiveness of Alpha-Fetoprotein Peptides
Following pregnancy, women sometimes have a high concentration of what is known as alpha-fetoprotein, a protein found in blood plasma and produced in the yolk sac and liver during the fetal stage of development. Previous studies have shown that the alpha-fetoprotein has pronounced affects against breast cancer, and therefore women who have had multiple births might be less at risk. This summer Nathaniel Taylor ’11 looked at two sub-derivatives (small pieces) of alpha-fetoprotein, Peptides TPVNP and STPNVP to see if the properties they possess could be extracted for pharmaceutical purposes. He worked on the research with Silas D. Childs Professor of Chemistry Robin Kinnel. More ...

Jiong Chen '10 Examines Digital Piracy in Levitt Research
China has long been criticized as a haven for piracy. The degree to which it exists there is so alarming that it would shiver ye timbers and condemn you straight to the depths of Davy Jones’ locker. At least, it would in the United States. But the kind of piracy that goes on in China is not usually discouraged, and is treated as a normal part of life. More than 90 percent of the Chinese population takes part in the search for the treasures of digital media culture, not gold. While citizens get much of their business software and electronic entertainment for free, their laid-back attitude has made piracy the number one issue for digital media companies that wish to make a profit. This summer Jiong Chen ’10 worked on a research project on the subject with Professor of Economics Elizabeth Jensen. More ...

Grace Liew '12 Examines Paradigm Shift in Malaysian Politics
A few years ago, Grace Liew ’12 would have told you she had little interest in the politics of her native country. So it may come as a surprise that Grace spent her summer pursuing an Emerson Grant to investigate a paradigm shift in Malaysian politics. It was the trend of government itself that inspired Grace’s interest. In the 2008 elections, the leading party lost its majority, a new step for a nation that has not traditionally seen significant opposition in government. Liew’s research sought to examine the reasons for this development and to track its progress, aided by Professor of Philosophy Rick Werner. More ...

Will Bauder ’10 Spends Summer on aCORN Project at Indiana University
The electroweak force describes the confluence of two fundamental forces in nature (out of four): the electromagnetic force, and the weak force. “Electroweak” is a funny sounding name to begin with, and “weak force” does not sound very scientific – but both are, in fact, complicated concepts in particle physics. The weak force alone governs beta decay and its associated radioactivity. But when combined with the electromagnetic force, it controls neutron beta decay. The aCORN project is an effort to more accurately measure the electron antineutrino correlation termed “little a,” one of the parameters for neutron beta decay. This summer, William Bauder ’10 worked on the aCORN project at Indiana University, which collaborates with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Professor of Physics Gordon Jones guided him through the research. More ...
Tawanda Mashavave '10
Tawanda Mashavave ’10 Analyzes Number Theory in Summer Research
One plus one is undoubtedly two. One times one is indubitably one. But what happens when you put a whole string of these simple calculations together? That is what Tawanda Mashavave ’10 researched this summer. His project was designated as computer science research, but it was geared more toward number theory. With Professor of Computer Science Richard Decker, Mashavave analyzed integer complexity: the integer complexity of a positive integer n, denoted by c(n), is the least amount of 1s used to represent n using only additions, multiplications, and parentheses.

Megan Bumb '10
Megan Bumb ’10 Spends Summer as Health Policy Intern for Children’s Defense Fund
The founder of the Children’s Defense Fund (CDF) was Marian Wright-Edelman, a leader in the civil rights movement. She was Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s friend and legal counsel, and Megan Bumb ’10 was a guest in her home for a barbeque this summer. More ...
