Cassandra's Prophecy Revisited: A Call for Environmental Justice
Science has shown overwhelming evidence supporting anthropogenic climate change, yet it is often not at the forefront of everyone else's minds. In this upcoming series, Raisa Rahim will clarify the direct link between human action and both environmental and human impacts by taking an evidence-based and interdisciplinary perspective.

UC Davis Research Communications Program Presents:
Finding Your Voice: In the Classroom and Beyond
Are you nervous or tight before giving a lecture or presentation? Do you run out of breath? Do you find your self vocally strained or tight at the end of the day? An athlete wouldn’t dream of competing without warming up physically. Musicians warmup before per forming, so do actors. They warmup physically, vocally, and mentally. Yet we as professors, teachers, educators speak all day long without warming up our voices and our bodies. The Research Communications Program invites you to join Theatre and Dance Professor Eva Barnes for a workshop designed to help you warmup vocally to communicate better, increase your vocal range, and improve the sound of your voice.
