Talk descrptions below (in no particular order) ………………………………………………………………………………………..

Talk: Why are Rivers So damn Hard to Monitor?

By: Alex Rittle

Alex is a PhD student in geography, but gets lost frequently. He doesn’t care about your Meyers-Briggs score, but his personality falls somewehere between LMAO and WTF.

About talk: We can send rockets to Mars and back and we can receive pizza by sending a text to Dominoes, but we cannot successfully map the river bottom in a useful way. Rivers are everywhere yet we can’t continually measure what’s in them. We’ll explore why.

Talk: PTSD and Fear: Getting past the Demons

By: Jaye Ferrone

Jaye is a Nerd Nite Co-Boss, Veteran, Barber, Translator, vintage lover and cat lady.

Know a Veteran or someone with PTSD but aren’t quite sure what to say to them? What IS PTSD and how does it manifest? Jaye will explore the world of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and the ways it affects the body and braine, and how different people cope. Expect some funny stories about her time n the military and how she got past the demons.

Talk: Living in a Multilingual Society

By: Eleanor Brasfield

I lived in a somewhat small, little-known country for over three years. The languages there taught me almost as much as the people.

Eleanor Brasfield is mildly obsessive when it comes to learning of all kinds. She can often be overheard babbling (or singing) about history, culture, language, politics, and music.
