Sexual Assault Awareness Week begins March 16

UVa-Wise News - Thu, 03/12/2015 - 2:53pm

UVa-Wise will hold various activities during the week of March 16 to bring awareness to the problems of sexual assault on college campuses.

 

Sexual Assault Awareness Week, sponsored by the generous support of Verizon, features various programs offered by the Student Development Advisory Board, Office of Compliance and Conduct and the Student Government Association.

John Foubert, national president of One in Four, a non-profit organization dedicated to ending rape, will speak to students on March 19 at 11 a.m. in the Chapel of All Faiths. Foubert consults regularly with the military and with colleges about applying research-based approaches to significantly lower rape in those communities. He is a professor of higher education and student affairs at Oklahoma State University.

The annual Take Back the Night event is set for 7 p.m. on March 19 in the Gilliam Sculpture Garden. TBTN focuses on eliminating sexual and domestic violence. In preparation for the event, students will gather on March 16 at 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in the Jefferson Lounge to make posters for TBTN.

A safety talk is also set for March 17 at 2 p.m. in the Dogwood Room in the Slemp Student Center.

Investigation of water filtration technique provides clearer educational picture to UVa-Wise student

UVa-Wise News - Wed, 03/11/2015 - 8:02am

After researching new ways to filter heavy metals from water, senior Dalton Robinson of Woodlawn, Virginia is considering working in a lab as a teacher as he pursues a doctorate degree.

“I took an organic lab during the summer and had discussed doing research with my professor, Trevor Makal,” said Robinson. “I was really excited to do research, and we had talked about acid base theory a lot. I got really excited as it has real applications for some of the things that are going on around here.”

In coal mining areas, including Southwest Virginia, heavy metals are released into the water systems from acid runoff. Robinson theorizes that if there was a form of material that could filter out the heavy metals in a solid state, it could be more economical and require fewer steps.

“It is more of a chemical aspect of my chosen field,” said Robinson. “I just wanted to try it because it was relative to this area and it could be easier to work with. “

According to Robinson, the method used to filter out coal mine water runoff now adds a new material that binds to form a solid that is eventually filtered out the water.

Robinson did a lot of background research in the field to find something original. After finding studies on a stable structure called UI066, he believed it might apply itself to water in acidic conditions and so he went to work.

“We had to have a structure to allow a place for the heavy metals to bond,” he said. “We then designed ligands to catch the heavy metals. One came out as we expected and the other was different. The second has been sent for additional testing.”

Applicants for many graduate programs are being encouraged, and more often required, to have undergraduate research experience.

“Before I didn’t really know what I wanted to do or be, but this shined a light on helping me figure out where I wanted to go,” said Robinson. “When we talk about chemistry in class, we all think it is perfect, and when you do research you find out that not everything is going to work out like you think. It is easy to get discouraged, but that is part of it and you have to keep trying different things until you get what you want.”
