The state of long-term management of nuclear waste in the United States has been at a stalemate for several years. While technical options exist for long-term isolation of toxic radioactive waste, these are irrelevant in the face of the socio-political complications of siting and operating a nuclear waste repository. This lecture will situate the struggle to effectively manage nuclear waste within the realm of nuclear energy issues, nuclear security, and nuclear non-proliferation issues.

When people hear the word "bee", they often think only of the European honey bee, a domesticated, introduced species, or perhaps a time they were stung, often by a yellowjacket wasp rather than a bee! This event will introduce you to the wide variety of local wild bee species and the habitats on which they depend, and help you learn how to identify the often-overlooked bees in your neighborhoods. Hosted by Framingham State University.
