NAVIGATORS & THE CURIOUS

 

Please Join Us for Cocktails & Hors d’oeuvres

33 PROSPECT AVENUE – PRINCETON, NJ

6 p.m., TUESDAY, April 9th, 2019

Speaker:  Evan J Conte, MD

Trenton Orthopaedic Group at the Rothman Institute

“Pioneering Techniques in Shoulder Replacement: 

Past, Present and Future”

In 1893 Paris, the first shoulder replacement was performed on a 37 year-old man with destructive tuberculosis of the shoulder joint.  From this experimental last resort, using a simple but ingenious design of platinum and natural rubber --- shoulder replacement has become a common and routine surgery.  It has transformed from an initial indication to treat degeneration of a joint, to a solution for complex fractures and even failed rotator cuff tears.  After reviewing the anatomy, history and biomechanics involved, shoulder surgeon Evan Conte will discuss the future of shoulder replacement:  and in particular, how it will incorporate advances in computer-aided design, biomedical imaging and 3D printing to enable patient-specific approaches to complex pathologies.

Princeton University Solar Collector Field Tour

Princeton University's Solar Collector Field can only seen from the Dinky, and since that is not running, come with us on a private tour!!

 
Friday April 12 @ 4:00pm
 
With 16,528 photovoltaic panels covering 27 acres, Princeton‘s solar collector field is among the largest single installations at a U.S. college or university.  The project site is located on land adjacent to Princeton‘s main campus between the New Jersey Transit "Dinky" spur line.  The project was built on land that holds the “spoils” from dredging Lake Carnegie back in the 1970s, so it would have been quite challenging to farm or locate a building there. 
 
Princeton University’s Solar Field is now even more sustainable thanks to a fleecy flock that keeps the 27 acres trim and tidy. The new ewe system is a creative and economical way to keep grass and weeds from reducing the efficiency of the photovoltaic panels that provide solar energy to campus. The 75 Katahdin sheep have been dining out at solar fields in the state for years!
 
Our tour is slated for Friday April 12 at 4:00pm.   Space is limited, so please let us know if you are interested by Tuesday April 2nd.    Send your name to pete@pattonhall.us.com so we can reserve your space.  Upon receipt, we will send you all the pertinent details as to where to meet!  Kids are welcome but alas, our furry friends would probably not do to well with the sheep!!

Nassau Hall Faculty Room Tour

ENTER THE INNER SANCTUM

You Have Never Seen Nassau Hall Like This!


Please join us as PA3 presents an exclusive, private, and guided visit to Princeton’s Faculty Room in Nassau Hall on Tuesday, April 30 from 5 -6 pm. Open free of charge to all PA3 members* but rsvp required by Monday, April 29. Rsvp to glbustin@outlook.com

The Faculty Room in Nassau Hall has been called “the symbolic center of the university” by Professor Karl Kusserow, author of “Inner Sanctum, Memory and Meaning in Princeton’s Faculty Room” and John Wilmerding Curator of American Art at the University Art Museum. The portraits displayed there “create a distinct historical narrative” and their story is echoed in the room itself. Professor Kusserow will lead us through an exploration of the history and significance of one of  the most iconic spaces on the Princeton campus – and one which many alumni have never seen. Portraits of George Washington at the Battle of Princeton, of James Madison, John Witherspoon and of other past Princeton presidents back to our origins as a college -- not to mention those of England’s King George II and of William of Nassau -- will delight and inform PA3 members. Open to all PA3 members (*Annual membership starts at $20 for Young Alumni. To join, go to: https://www.princetonaaa.org/dues) and please remember to RSVP.

Speaker:  Andrew Voros, Rutgers ’80

“Recent Developments in Photocatalysis for Air Pollution Abatement

And Self-Cleaning Exteriors:  Passive, Affordable, Green, Sustainable”

Photocatalysis, the initiation of a reaction by light, has long held promise for commercial applications across numerous environmental systems:  air purification, contaminant remediation, water disinfection, and biofilm inhibition. When harnessed to turn interior & exterior surfaces (windows, lighting fixtures, textiles, building materials, solar panels) into passive reactors capable of self-cleaning --- this technology improves air quality.  After a brief overview of key developments in the field, Andrew will discuss: the latest third-generation applications that employ nano titanium dioxide; methods to quantify their effectiveness; and their positive impacts on human health.
