Professor explores faith, science

More than 200 people filed into the Learning Center Thursday night “to consider the evidence” and “openly discuss the basis of their beliefs,” during the “Is faith reasonable in a scientific world?” discussion.

Craig Hazen, an author and professor of doctorate religious studies at Biola University in Southern California, began his lecture by saying, “I’m going to perform a miracle.” He then proceeded to raise each of his arms. The purpose of the display, as Hazen explained, was to show that though there is a physiological reason for arm movement, there is still the component of will.

The ethics of Adderall use

UM’s Ethics Club, Institute on Law, Psychiatry and Psychology, and Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences hosted “The Abuse of Adderall and ‘Academic Steroids’ in Law School: Clinical and Ethical Perspectives” Friday afternoon. Approximately 35 students attended the lecture, which featured discussions by various professors, a substance abuse counselor and the Florida Lawyers Assistants Program. The speakers discussed the muscle pain, confusion and possible suicide that may follow Adderall use, but also the benefits of Adderall to treat attention deficit hyperactive disorder. The lecture closed with noting that “a drug is a drug is a drug,” which means that Adderall users should be informed and intelligent when using the drug.

Good jeans run in the sorority

Delta Gamma sorority hosted their semi-annual charity jean sale Thursday afternoon in the I-Lounge. Tables stacked with designer jeans ranging from True Religion to Sevens were on sale for 40 to 70 percent off their regular retail price. More than $500 was raised and ten percent of the proceeds went to Service for Site, the sorority’s philanthropy.

RSMAS receives $2 million grant

Rainy weather did not ruin spirits at the Center for Southeastern Tropical Advanced Remote Sensing Thursday morning when Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart presented the environmental facility with $2 million from the federal government.

The facility is part of the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science that provides information on the ecological health of various regions using satellite systems. In addition, it gathers data for forecasting environmental problems.

President Donna E. Shalala and RSMAS Dean Otis Brown spoke to the approximately 25 students and faculty who attended.

Correction: The RSMAS brief that ran in print and initially online was incorrect in stating that the $2 million was a donation from Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart. The money came from the federal government and was merely presented by Diaz-Balart.
