April 4, 2007--Session IV: Keep Your Eyes on the Prize
April 11, 2007--Session V: Prepare for the Future

A few years ago, John Coleman’s doctor told him he was wearing himself out running his small startup, and he wasn’t even 30 yet. John changed the way he approached his life and his business. As his business makes the transition from selling high-end audio cables into supplying aerospace customers, he focuses on the bottom line in his life as well as in his work. In Real World 101, he shares the lessons he’s learned, which can be applied to anyone starting a company-or working for someone else. The program includes focused material and examples of how to take your business forward, along with plenty of time for Q&A.

Indexing and Geometry presented by Joe Dumoulin
Tuesday, April 10, Socializing: 5:30 pm; Presentation: 6:00 pm. With the popularity of data indexing and the proliferation of tools for indexing networks and desktops, the need for effective data mining strategies is pretty clear. Traditional data mining strategies use linear algebra to interpret the data in an index. The discussion will cover the most popular and successful linear algebraic data mining methods and then propose a different strategy based on geometric interpretation of the index that tries to solve some of the basic problems in data mining.

WSU Sleep Researchers Awarded $1.5M Grant by W.M. Keck Foundation
Washington State University has received a $1.5 million grant award from the W.M. Keck Foundation -- a philanthropic institution supporting innovative research in science, engineering and medicine -- to test a new theory of the brain organization of sleep. The award enables a team of sleep and neuroscience researchers from the Pullman and Spokane campuses, led by principal investigator Gregory Belenky, director of the WSU Sleep and Performance Research Center, to test the revolutionary new theory first proposed by WSU neuroscientist, James Krueger and his colleague, the late Ferenc Obal. Challenging the prevailing view that sleep is imposed globally on the brain by central sleep-regulatory circuits, the team argues that sleep develops locally in the brain from use-dependent metabolic changes in cortical columns and other neuronal assemblies and that it is the coalescence of numerous areas of local sleep that leads to whole-brain sleep.
