    In Kenya the Masai call him “Leshan,” which translates to “born during the rains,” and honor him as a village elder. He is still quick to greet people with “jambo jambo,” the traditional Swahili greeting.

    But in Wisconsin, Dr. Bernard Easterday is best known as professor and dean emeritus of the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine. In 2021 he celebrates 60 years of activity on the University of Wisconsin campus.

    Join us for a virtual tour through Rwanda, Tanzania  & Kenya with Emeritus Dean Barney Easterday and UWRA President Esther Olson.  Hear about Professor Easterday’s research on diseases of livestock in Kenya that were and still are a potential threat to the U.S. livestock industry.

    CDC recommendations for managing the COVID-19 pandemic change over time because they are based on science. The better we understand this new viral pest, the better we can control it. Professor Tom Friedrich of the UW School of Veterinary Medicine is one of the scientists studying the coronavirus, and he has offered to give us an update on the well-received seminar that he presented to us in March of this year. The content of his webinar will depend to some extent on scientific developments between now and then.

    Topics may include: Circulation of delta and other variants, and their impact on vaccine effective-ness; updates on vaccine policy, including authorizations for children under 12 and potential use of boosters; and forecasting the next issues in pandemic response.

    Tom is Professor of Virology at the UW-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine. His laboratory studies how pandemic viruses like HIV, influenza, Zika, and SARS-CoV-2 evolve to emerge, spread, and cause disease. With his UW colleague David O’Connor, Tom is co-leading a series of COVID-related projects, with special emphasis on viral evolution, genetic surveillance, and expanding the availability of testing to K-12 schools. Through this work Tom is connected to scientists around the country and the globe working to understand and control the COVID-19 pandemic. Tom grew up in the Milwaukee suburb of Wauwatosa and did his undergraduate and graduate studies at UW-Madison.

    If you have preliminary questions for the speaker, please send to Program Coordinator Millard Susman at msussman@wisc.edu by Thursday, September 30.

    Tom's research was spotlighted in "Inside UW".  Click here to read more.

    Join us for some lively conversations, connect with old friends, and meet some new  - all from the comfort of your home. There always seems to be plenty of things to talk about.

    Whether you live on the East Side or the West side, you are invited to join us for breakfast via your smartphone, tablet or computer in the comfort of your home.

    We will be meeting on the second Thursday of each month from 9:00a.m. to 10:00 a.m.


    We think it is prudent to avoid direct contact for at least a little while, but that doesn’t mean that we have to give up conversation with our friends over a sweet roll and a cup of coffee. We can have a virtual, bring-your-own-sweet-roll breakfast without having to change out of our pajamas! And we can overcome the divide between East and West by setting up a digital meeting at which the Sofra gang and the Elie’s gang can get to know one another.

    We look forward to "seeing" you.

    In 1998 the City of Madison established a Sister City Program that supports Sister City relationships in the belief that person-to-person ties are the strongest and to work for peace and better understanding of all cultures. Sister City relationships are created to develop lasting friendships on the human level and to provide a forum for the exchange or ideas and views.

    Current Sister City Programs are Arcatao, El Salvador (1986), Bahir Dar, Ethiopia (2018), Camaguey, Cuba (1994), Freiburg, Germany (1988), Kanifing, The Gambia (2016), Mantova, Italy (2001), Obihiro, Japan (2003), Tepatitlan, Mexico (2012) and Vilnius, Lithuania (1988).

    Join us to learn more about the Sister City Program and how the program works in three of our Sister Cities.  The program will begin with Laila D’Costa, Sister City Program Coordinator and chair of the Sister City Collaboration Committee.  Laila will discuss the history, breadth and importance of the sister cities program to Madison.  Then we will dig more deeply into three sister cities.  The panel will include Charles James (Madison-Freiburg, Germany); Jo Oyama Miller (Madison-Obihiro, Japan); and Frank Alfano (Madison-Mantova, Italy).

    The University of Wisconsin-Madison is home to a major research and development program that aims to apply quantum computing to the solution of problems that cannot be solved with “classical” computers. But what is a quantum computer and what sorts of problems can it solve? Professor Mark Saffman, Director of the Wisconsin Quantum Institute, will tell us what’s going on in research at WQI and how the results of that research are likely to affect the world in which we live.

    Mark is an experimental physicist working in the areas of atomic physics, quantum and nonlinear optics, and quantum information processing. He has made significant contributions to the physics of optical solitons, pattern formation, sources of entangled light, and quantum computing. His current research effort is devoted to the development of neutral atom based quantum computing devices. His research team was the first to demonstrate a quantum CNOT gate between two trapped neutral atoms, and the deterministic entanglement of a pair of neutral atoms. This was done using dipole mediated interactions between highly excited Rydberg atoms. He is currently developing scalable neutral atom platforms using arrays of trapped atoms.

    He is a Professor of Physics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Director of the Wisconsin Quantum Institute (wqi.wisc.edu), and Chief Scientist for Quantum Information at ColdQuanta, Inc. He is a fellow of the American Physical Society and the Optical Society of America and has been recognized with the Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship and a University of Wisconsin Vilas Associate Award. He also serves as an Associate Editor for Physical Review A.

    If you have preliminary questions for the speaker, please email them in advance to program coordinator Millard Susman at msusman@wisc.edu by Tuesday, November 2.

    The University of Wisconsin–Madison’s Public History Project is a multi-year effort to uncover and give voice to those who experienced, challenged and overcame prejudice on campus. The project grew out of a campus study group that looked into the history of two UW–Madison student organizations in the early 1920s that bore the name of the Ku Klux Klan. Chancellor Rebecca Blank commissioned the Public History Project as one of several responses to the study group’s findings. The broad intent of the project is to ensure that all students and alumni are aware of the full history of the university, including the accomplishments of campus community members from marginalized populations whose stories previously may have been hidden or not widely known.

    Please join us and Director Kacie Lucchini Butcher who is leading “a multi-year effort to uncover and give voice to those who experienced, challenged and overcame prejudice on campus” — as it builds toward a public exhibit in fall 2022.

    If you have preliminary questions for the speaker, please email them in advance to program coordinator Mary Beth Plane marybethplane@yahoo.com by Tuesday, November 30.

    Join us for some lively conversations, connect with old friends, and meet some new  - all from the comfort of your home. There always seems to be plenty of things to talk about.

    Whether you live on the East Side or the West side, you are invited to join us for breakfast via your smartphone, tablet or computer in the comfort of your home.

    We will be meeting on the second Thursday of each month from 9:00a.m. to 10:00 a.m.


    We think it is prudent to avoid direct contact for at least a little while, but that doesn’t mean that we have to give up conversation with our friends over a sweet roll and a cup of coffee. We can have a virtual, bring-your-own-sweet-roll breakfast without having to change out of our pajamas! And we can overcome the divide between East and West by setting up a digital meeting at which the Sofra gang and the Elie’s gang can get to know one another.

    We look forward to "seeing" you.


    Registration Deadline:  Monday, December 6

    Registration:   Advance registration is required.  You are encouraged to register online.  To register by phone or email, call the Association office. If you or your guest registered for this seminar but cannot attend, please cancel your registration online, or email/call the UWRA office.
