Eighth Annual Emerging Markets Forum Business Powering Africa Forward
Presented by the Center for Global Business, sponsored in-part by CIBER, a title VI grant from the U.S. Department of Education, at the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland The Smith School's Center for Global Business convenes its 8th Annual Emerging Markets Forum on the theme of doing business in Africa. Since 2010, this conference series has examined the rise of new economic powers, increased awareness about emerging markets, and disseminated information about how U.S. companies can best succeed there. One of the fastest growing economies in the world, Africa has many countries that have made diversification a priority. Opportunities abound for businesses that understand that trade, not aid, is the road to future prosperity. Expert speakers from business, academia and policy will discuss the opportunities as well as challenges of doing business in Africa, including: ● Which countries are reforming and growing fastest? ● Which sectors are the most promising (now and in the future)? ● What opportunities have drawn U.S. businesses to Africa? ● What challenges do they face, and how have they overcome these challenges?

Climate Data: Mysteries, wonders, and reality
16th Annual Kendall Lecture with Thomas R. Karl | Tuesday, April 18 - 5:00pm Speaker: Thomas R. Karl, Independent Scholar and Past Director of the National Climatic Data Center - NOAA (1998-2015) Climate data comes in a rich variety of quality with varying time and space resolutions. The mystery behind climate observations stem from the fact they require careful understanding of their limitations and usefulness. The wonder of all this data is being able to deduce changes and variations in the Earth’s climate from a surprisingly robust set of independent methods to reconstruct past and present climate from an exponentially growing set of data (approaching exabyte size --- 1018 or 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 bytes). This includes thousands of climate variables and diverse methods of processing these data. The mystery and wonder often come together as a not so glamorous nitty-gritty reality of trying to make sense of all the observations. Considerable scientific discourse is often necessary to develop and interpret data sets and models that help us understand the state and changing state of the climate system. A few examples of how this has evolved will be presented. This will include the data and methods used to deduce changes and variations in the Earth’s temperature and precipitation during the Anthropocene. About the Speaker Thomas Karl received his B.S. from Northern Illinois University in DeKalb and his M.S. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and was awarded a Doctorate of Humane Letters from North Carolina State University. After a brief TV/Radio weather forecasting position, Tom joined the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in 1975. He held a variety of assignments in NOAA including Senior Scientist (1992-1998), Director of the National Climatic Data Center (1998-2015) and Director of the National Centers for Environmental Information (2015-2016). In 2010, he was asked by the President’s Science Advisor to Chair the $2.5b US Global Change Research Program’s Subcommittee on Global Change Research. There he was responsible for ensuring the delivery to Congress of an interagency Global Change Research Plan, Assessments, and annual Progress Reports for all agencies engaged in global change research. He continued in that position until 2016 when he retired from federal service after a 41-year career. He is now an Independent Scholar. About the Series The 16th annual Henry W. Kendall Memorial Lecture was sponsored by the MIT Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences and the MIT Center for Global Change Science. The lecture series honors the memory of Professor Henry Kendall (1926-1999), a 1990 Nobel Laureate, longtime member of MIT’s physics faculty, and dedicated environmentalist. A founding member and chair of the Union of Concerned Scientists, he played a leading role in organizing scientific community statements on global problems, including the World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity in 1992 and the Call for Action at the Kyoto Climate Summit in 1997.

2018 Demystifying Medicine: The opioid epidemic: how, where, and what can be done?
2018 Demystifying Medicine: The opioid epidemic: how, where, and what can be done? Air date: Tuesday, April 17, 2018, 4:00:00 PM Category: Demystifying Medicine Runtime: 01:49:03 Description: Demystifying Medicine Overdose deaths from opioid use have nearly quadrupled since the year 2000, and opioids now kill more people each year in the United States than guns or car accidents. We know how the opioid crisis came to be; we know what opioids do to the brain. Now we must put our heads together to curb the epidemic fast. Two of the most prominent figures in the national opioid discussion — NIDA Director Nora Volkow, M.D., Ph.D., and NINDS Director Walter Koroshetz, M.D. — describe in detail the state of the opioid crisis and what NIH is doing about it. Come to the lecture to get plugged in to one of the most pressing public health emergencies of our times. Every day, more than 115 Americans die after overdosing on opioids, a four-fold increase since 2000, and the numbers continue to climb. Toward this effort, NIH has nearly doubled funding for research on pain and on opioid misuse and addiction from approximately $600 million in fiscal year 2016 to $1.1 billion in fiscal year 2018, made possible from a funding boost by Congress. The focus of NIH's efforts centers on ways to reduce the over prescription of opioids, accelerate development of effective non-opioid therapies for pain, and provide more flexible options for treating opioid addiction. This lecture describes the state of the crisis, the state of our efforts, and how you can be a part of the solution. The Demystifying Medicine Lecture Series is designed to help bridge the gap between advances in biology and their applications to major human diseases. The lectures include presentations of patients, pathology, diagnosis, and therapy in the context of major diseases and current research. All clinicians, trainees including fellows, medical students, Ph.D. students, and other healthcare and research professionals are welcome to attend.

Agile Acquisitions 101: The Means Behind the Magic
This seminar will feature examples of where agile acquisition has been successfully implemented in the Federal Government. The lessons learned, success stories, and the opportunity to question the trailblazers themselves should give everyone a great foundation to begin. There is a lot of talk about Agile - but what is it, and why are new procurement methods and strategies needed to successfully implement it? Agile Software Development is a mindset that requires a completely new way of thinking about an entire development process from the moment a need is identified through execution. In order to procure for these types of services, it is important to understand what Agile is and what it is not, what the risks are in the process and how they are mitigated, and what value & success look like. Traditional procurement methods for “waterfall” software implementations lack the flexibility to take advantage of the benefits of time, schedule, and cost that Agile Software Development methods can bring to the Federal Government. For this reason, the acquisition workforce needs to make its processes agile using innovative and creative solutions to procure these services while maintaining compliance with the FAR and Federal Law. This seminar will identify several methods and strategies that have been and can be applied to achieve this goal.

VA: In Health Matters, Place Matters - The Health Opportunity Index (HOI)
This webinar was brought to you by the NPA Federal Interagency Health Equity Team’s webinar series, Promoting Health Equity through Programs and Policies. It took place on April 28, 2016. The Virginia Department of Health (VDOH) developed the Health Opportunity Index (HOI) because they were aware of the health inequities that existed among people of varying socioeconomic, racial/ethnic, and rural/urban backgrounds. The HOI is a composite measure of the social determinants of health. It provides a baseline for a community to determine what factors lead to positive health outcomes and healthy communities. The HOI is comprised of 13 indicators, grouped into four profiles that are indicators of the natural, built and social environment of a community, available resources, availability of economic opportunities and access to health services in a community. The HOI helps to detect High Priority Target Areas within a community. The Index emphasizes the need for multi-sector collaboration and cooperation to improve health outcomes for all community members. This webinar will highlight how the VDOH related health data from the Health Opportunity Index to broader conditions, and used data as a lever to examine and develop public policies that promote health and health equity. Presenters will: 1) Provide a contextual overview of health inequities in Virginia 2) Discuss the HOI and its methodologies 3) Provide examples of practical applications of the HOI and 4) Review how the HOI can be used to inform policies, allocate resources, support the work of community coalitions and spur place based initiatives.

Mayor Bowser Releases 2016 Accountability Report, 1/9/17
Mayor Muriel Bowser releases her Year Two Transition Plan Accountability Report. The report shows that in the Bowser Administration’s first two years in office, the Mayor has either delivered, launched or prepared to launch 94% of the promises she committed to during the 2014/2015 Mayoral transition. The report delivers on Mayor Bowser’s commitment to transparency and accountability, and offers a comprehensive look into the Administration’s goals and priorities. In highlighting her Administration’s accomplishments, Mayor Bowser placed a special focus on Washington, DC’s values and her commitment to defending those values. “We are Washington, DC and we embrace our diversity, strive to be more inclusive, and to grow and spread our prosperity to all eight wards. In 2017, we will promote and defend our progressive values and empower ourselves and fellow Washingtonians for the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead,” said Mayor Bowser. Over the past two years, 11% of the Mayor’s 131 goals have been completed, 81% have launched and are currently being implemented, and 2% are in the planning phases. Altogether, the Administration is delivering on 94% of the Mayor’s priorities. Examples of promises that have been completed include: - Completed the distribution of body-worn cameras to all MPD patrol officers - Resumed DNA testing at the District’s Crime Lab - Announced increase to HPAP assistance from $50,000 to $80,000 for new homebuyers - Continued investment in Housing Production Trust Fund at $100 million annually - Obligated $106 million of HPTF to produce or preserve more than 1,200 affordable housing units in all 8 wards - 5,300 affordable housing units — capable of housing nearly 12,000 District residents — are in the development pipeline “While there is still much more work to do, I am proud of what my Administration has accomplished over the past two years,” said Mayor Bowser. “Violent crime and property crime are down, graduation and enrollment rates are up, and our population is the highest it’s been in forty years. I promised that we would make our streets safer and our neighborhoods stronger, and the Accountability Report shows that we are doing just that.” The Year Two Transition Plan Accountability Report can be viewed HERE: http://mayor.dc.gov/node/1211650 The Year One Transition Plan Accountability Report can be viewed HERE: http://mayor.dc.gov/node/1133976

On September 8, 2015, the United States entered into a proposed settlement agreement with the State of Oregon to vindicate the civil rights of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) who are unnecessarily segregated in sheltered workshops, or at risk of such unnecessary segregation. The settlement agreement with Oregon resolves a class action lawsuit by private plaintiffs in which the Department of Justice moved to intervene in May 2013. The lawsuit alleged that the State's employment service system over-relied on segregated sheltered workshops to the exclusion of integrated alternatives, such as supported employment services, and placed individuals, including youth, at risk of entering sheltered workshops. As a result of the proposed settlement, over the next seven years, 1,115 working-age individuals with I/DD, who are currently being served in segregated sheltered workshops, will have opportunities to work in real jobs at competitive wages. Additionally, at least 4,900 youth ages 14 - 24 will receive supported employment services designed to assist them to choose, prepare for, get, and keep work in a typical work setting. Half of the youth served will receive, at a minimum, an Individual Plan for Employment through the State's Office of Vocational Rehabilitation Services. Correspondingly, the State will reduce its reliance on sheltered workshops and implement policies and capacity-building strategies to improve the employment system to increase access to competitive integrated employment and the opportunity for people with I/DD to work the maximum number of hours consistent with their abilities and preferences. Join this webinar to hear directly from representatives from the U.S. Department of Justice about the elements of the settlement agreement, as well as from stakeholders in the state of Oregon who will be positively impacted by these developments. Speakers: U.S. Department of Justice: Eve Hill, Max Lapertosa, Regina Kline, Sheila Foran United Cerebral Palsy Association of Oregon and SW Washginton: Melissa Miller Oregon Department of Human Services: Mike Maley
