Monday Night Jazz Jam

Every Monday  — 8 PM to 12 PM
No cover

TasteCp presents Monday night Jazz concert series featuring the finest Jazz artists in Central Florida!
Illustration and review by Thomas Thorspecken
I have been working a late shift at Full Sail from 5PM to 9PM. That means I've had to search for events that go late into the evening. Jazz at Taste (717West Smith Street in College Park) fits the bill. Danny Grudal, Chris Muda and Michael Wells started a set when I arrived. I ordered some crispy tater tots, a beer and got to work. Different musicians joined in for different jams. A saxophone player I had met at Terrace 390's Jazz event said hello. This is a great way to relax after a hectic day. Soloists would take the music and improvise their own riff on top of it. When a performer got lost in the moment, the audience at the bar and tables would root him on with laughter, clapping and shouts. It is quite addictive. I nodded my head to the beat and tapped my foot as I sketched. I tried to let the lines flow unhindered.

These Jazz sets happen every Monday Night from about 9PM to 11PM. There is no cover.

Global Elemental Cycles

The rapacious human appetite for energy and food, accelerated by the industrial revolution, has transformed global elemental cycles. This transformation is altering our land, air and sea, with serious consequences for the entire global ecosystem. The Earth has moved into a new era, The Age of Humans, which some scientists have termed the “Anthropocene.” Human alteration of the earth can be viewed through many lenses, but nothing captures our predicament better than our transformation of global elemental cycles. Our impact on these cycles not only reflects human domination of the earth, but also exemplifies the challenges we face in meeting energy and food needs of a burgeoning human population sustainably. In this science café, I will take you on a crash course through global biogeochemistry, showing how humans have altered global cycles of the major life elements: carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus. Along the way, you will discover linkages between your local life and the global ecosystem. From global warming, to nutrient pollution of our coastal estuaries and springs, to the challenges of feeding the world, you will walk away with a better appreciation for how we are transforming the earth, and what we need to do to create a more sustainable future.

Patrick J. Bohlen is Professor of Biology and Director of Landscape and Natural Resources and Arboretum at the University of Central Florida. He oversees landscape planning and operations for multiple UCF campuses, and directs research and educational initiatives that guide conservation and stewardship of natural resources. His research focusses on soil and ecosystem ecology, and has included projects ranging from the role of earthworms in carbon and nitrogen cycling in soils, to human impact on nutrient runoff and water quality in urban and agricultural environments.

Discussion topics change monthly.
