Ethanol and Medicines
Thursday, September 27, 2018
Ethanol is one of the most widely used legal psychoactive substances with high potential for abuse. Interactions between ethanol and drugs may occur with the concurrent use of ethanol and medicinal products. The elderly frequently use ethanol and prescription drugs together; therefore the risk for side effects is higher. Concomitant use of ethanol and drugs may result in pharmacokinetic or pharmacodynamic interactions. Pharmacokinetic interactions occur when ethanol directly affects the normal metabolism of the drug and its concentration in the blood. Pharmacodynamic interactions are primarily the result of additive effects of ethanol and drugs on the central nervous system. Therefore, there is a risk of excessive sedation when using drugs that act depressive on the central nervous system. In reality, interactions between ethanol and drugs are often complex, as people may be exposed to more than two psychotropic substances at the same time. In the presentation, I will focus primarily on action of the ethanol on the organism and on providing a better insight into the mechanisms underlying the known pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic drug interactions with ethanol.

From Thales to Higgs: A Very Physical Promenade
Friday, September 21, 2018
Through various anecdotes, some true, some made up, but always plausible, I start with Thales, move on to Empedocles and Aristarchus, spend some time with Plato and Aristotle, then jump all the way to Einstein. All along, I use a simple language, understandable to everyone and hopefully entertaining. My goal is to explain how the world in which we live is at the same time simpler and more complex, but most of all more marvelous and fascinating, than most people think.

Without trying to sell myself as a specialist of scientific thinking, which I'm not, my goal is to explain why physics is for me a constant source of inspiration and wonder.

The show is free and open to the public. However, we ask that you reserve a seat by emailing Hal Haggard (hhaggard@bard.edu)

Talking Science: An Actor’s Perspective on Scientists Connecting with Their Audiences
Friday, September 21, 2018
Doing science is one (great) thing; talking science is something else, especially if you talk to people who are not science-minded. It can also be great, but for some people it's harder than for others. As an actor and storyteller I think that there are a few tips that I can share and that will be helpful to you scientists and/or scientists-to-be, whenever you'll be talking to an audience. This will not be a lecture, nor a workshop, rather a freewheeling exchange.
