University of Vermont president Dan Fogel announced Wednesday that Tom Vogelmann has been appointed as the eleventh Dean of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS). He has been acting as Interim Dean of CALS since July of 2008.Mr. Vogelmann came to Vermont in 2002 as a Professor of Plant Biology and Chair of the Department of Botany and Agricultural Biochemistry. A graduate of Syracuse University (Ph.D.), Washington State University (M.S.) and the University of Vermont (B.S.), Dr. Vogelmann worked for eighteen years at the University of Wyoming where he was Professor of Botany and served as the interim Chair of the Department of Botany. This position is key to helping move Vermont agriculture forward. I have worked with Dr. Vogelmann during his tenure as interim dean and he clearly understands the importance of the Land Grant mission of the University to the state of Vermont, said Roger Allbee, Secretary of Agriculture.CALS is one of seven academic units offering undergraduate degrees at the University of Vermont. CALS programs emphasize the life sciences, agriculture and food systems, environmental stewardship and the preservation of healthy, rural communities. Students in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences learn how to make a difference in our changing world. Rigorous course work, research in state-of-the-art labs, hands-on experiences, and relevant internships provide students with the knowledge, skills, and values needed to solve important societal problems and ensure a more sustainable planet. Tom understands how vitally important it is today to serve all aspects of agriculture in Vermont. I look forward to working with him on the many challenges and opportunities facing agricultural prosperity in our state, commented Allbee.Dr. Vogelmann has received numerous awards and other recognitions for his teaching, research, and service, including the Robertson Lecture for outstanding contributions to plant physiology conferred by the Australian and New Zealand Societies for Plant Physiology. He also received the Presidential Award for outstanding research, the College of Arts and Sciences Award for Outstanding Research, and the Elbogen Award for Outstanding Teaching, all at the University of Wyoming. Most recently, he received the Joseph E. Carrigan Award for Excellence in Teaching and Undergraduate Education in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at UVM. Dr. Vogelmann specializes in plant physiology and has published more than eighty scientific papers in refereed journals, books, and technical proceedings.

Nick Pittman – 77-76-82 – 235Print Friendly Version Final Results Story Links The Drake University men’s golf team finished the SIUE Derek Dolenc Invitational with a third-round 287 to finish fourth. The Bulldogs used a strong final round to separate from MVC rivals Loyola and Missouri State and finished just one stroke behind the third-place team, Belmont. UT Martin won the event with a commanding six-stroke lead.Drake’s climb up the leaderboard was fueled by a five-under-par round by junior Tim Lim which propelled him into a tie for first place through three rounds with a total of 209 (72-71-66), before defeating Belmont’s Evan Davis and Southern Utah’s Jake Vincent in a one-hole playoff. Lim tallied a field-best 13 birdies through three rounds, and his final-round 66 is the lowest round by a Bulldog since Lucas Scherf fired a 65 in the Twin Oaks Intercollegiate event last February. The win is Lim’s first of his collegiate career and the first medalist for Drake since Scherf won the Twin Oaks Intercollegiate.Senior Chase Wicklund finished close behind Lim with a 54-hole total of 212 (72-69-71) to finish tied for fifth. Sophomore Lucas Scherf totaled 224 (74-74-76) strokes through three rounds to finish tied for 47th, and freshman Silvester Tan finished one stroke behind with a 54-hole total of 225 (78-73-74) and tied for 51st. Freshman Nick Pittman rounded out the team’s performance with a 235 (77-76-82) to finish tied for 85th.The Bulldogs will return to Des Moines to host the Zach Johnson Invitational on Sept. 30-Oct. 1.
The Enceladus problem – accounting for the heat source of a tiny moon of Saturn – just jumped by more than an order of magnitude. “Cassini Finds Enceladus Is a Powerhouse,” reported Jet Propulsion Laboratory today. “Heat output from the south polar region of Saturn’s moon Enceladus is much greater than was previously thought possible,” the press release said; “….15.8 gigawatts, approximately 2.6 times the power output of all the hot springs in the Yellowstone region, or comparable to 20 coal-fueled power stations.” That’s “more than an order of magnitude higher than scientists had predicted” based on a re-analysis of infrared data taken in 2008. Previous estimates were 1.1 to 1.4 gigawatts. The results were published in the Journal of Geophysical Research on March 4. Lead author of the study, Carly Howett [Southwest Research Institute, Boulder, Colorado] was dumbfounded by the results. “The mechanism capable of producing the much higher observed internal power remains a mystery and challenges the currently proposed models of long-term heat production,” she remarked. The only suggestion for a way out of the problem was to propose episodic outbursts. “A possible explanation of the high heat flow observed is that Enceladus’ orbital relationship to Saturn and Dione changes with time, allowing periods of more intensive tidal heating, separated by more quiescent periods,” the article suggested. That proposal, however, has the bad philosophical side effect of making our observations a special time: “This means Cassini might be lucky enough to be seeing Enceladus when it’s unusually active.” Since extra heat might melt the ice, an appeal to life was predictable: “The possibility of liquid water, a tidal energy source and the observation of organic (carbon-rich) chemicals in the plume of Enceladus make the satellite a site of strong astrobiological interest,” Howett said.Quick! Look over there! The use of the L-word is a tactic similar to the used car salesman pointing to a hired streaker when the prospective buyer is about to look under the hood (04/27/2009, 06/26/2009). A persistent buyer might not be distracted. Then the salesman tries another tactic: “That’s strange; it was working before. Every time I tried it the engine ran fine. You just happened to come by at a bad time.” Among all the other Saturn surprises (12/07/2010, 02/02/2009), Enceladus was already a big problem for the assumed age of the solar system (A.S.S.) (08/30/2005, 03/13/2007, 01/28/2011 bullet 2). Now it is a BIG problem (pronounce it beeeeeg; señor. But señorita: Encéladus is not pronounced like enchilada). Darwin skeptics who nevertheless cling to Lyell’s myth of millions and billions of years should take note of observations like these (08/04/2007). The two moyboys (03/31/2007 commentary), Charlie & Charlie (Lyell & Darwin), were part of the same radical movement Peter warned about (II Peter 3:3-6).
