The “10 Questions” lecture series, which will address a different question each week, doubles as a course for students and a panel open to the public. The series will explore open-ended questions such as “What is beauty?”, “What is failure?” and “What is knowledge?” Each week’s panel will feature two faculty members from the School of the Arts and Architecture and two faculty members from other departments who will approach the question of the week from the perspective of their academic disciplines. An architect demonstrated how technology can help people overcome their bodies’ physical constraints when he showed a video of a robot “pet” he programmed to follow its owner around carrying bags. Four professors discussed changing notions of what constitutes a body within the fields of biology, environmental engineering, architecture and dance at the “10 Questions” lecture Tuesday night.

By Mike Waldner | PUBLISHED: October 27, 2018 at 11:14 am | UPDATED: October 27, 2018 at 11:14 am Mike Scioscia provided a shot of perspective during the Los Angeles Sportswalk of Fame ceremony in San Pedro. This was no surprise to those who followed him when he was behind the plate for the Dodgers and as manager of the Angels. “I’ve been practicing for the most important thing a dad has to do,” he said. ‘Walk a daughter down the aisle.” As nice as the Sportswalk honor was, as disappointing as it is to be the former Angels manager, the wedding of Taylor Scioscia was, understandably, at the top of a father’s priority list. The attempt today is to bring at least a little perspective to seemingly disparate yet intertwined topics of – groan! – analytics, the hiring of Brad Ausmus as Scioscia’s replacement, and the World Series.

Michael Collins USA TODAY Published 10:00 p.m. UTC Aug 23, 2018 WASHINGTON – After a year of negotiations, the U.S. and Mexico are on the verge of striking a deal to revise the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA. With that in mind, this is a good time to step back and see how we got to this point. Here are seven things you should know: What is NAFTA? The North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA, is a trade pact signed by the U.S., Canada and Mexico, which made it easier for companies in those three countries to move goods and supplies across North America’s borders. The agreement took effect on Jan. 1, 1994, and essentially eliminated tariffs on most goods traded among the three nations.
