*******

Computer Science Will Hold Colloquium

The Computer Science Colloquium Series invites you to a talk by Mark Hoffmann
(Chemistry), at 4 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 5, in 106 CAS II.
The title is "Application of the Finite Element Method to Problems in
Computational Physical Chemistry."

The Finite Element Method is a widely used approximation technique for
ordinary and partial differential equations. A limitation to its use for
higher dimensional problems, such as those that arise in atomic and molecular
quantum mechanics, was the apparent need to use relatively high-order
polynomials in each dimension. It will be shown that this limitation can be at
least partially circumvented by a two-step procedure in which a spline
function is fitted to the results of an initial low-order polynomial solution.
Implementation of a spectral transform lanczos method for solution of the
generalized eigenvalue problem that results from the variational Finite
Element Method will be discussed. Application to various problems in quantum
chemistry will be presented. -- Bruce Maxwell, Assistant Professor of Computer
Science, Computer Science Colloquium Series Coordinator.

The sessions are "Attitudinal Awareness: The First Step Toward Change." This
session is designed to inform participants of the provisions of Title I
(employment) of the Americans with Disabilities Act. It will examine fears,
attitudes and stereotypes of specific disabilities by understanding how these
attitudes influence individual thoughts, feelings and ultimately behavior
toward people who are disabled. It will discuss proper etiquette, languages
and behavior when interacting with people who are disabled. In this workshop
you will learn the importance of determining essential and marginal functions
when conducting interviews; not letting prejudice affect hiring decisions; the
importance of providing good supervision; knowing when to provide reasonable
accommodation; and what to do before claiming undue hardship.

The trainer, Linda Jensen, is the training and development administrator,
Central Personnel, Bismarck. She has been conducting training on Title I of
ADA since 1992. She has more than 17 years experience in the human resource
management field.

All supervisors, administrators and faculty members who participate on search
committees, evaluate others, and supervise employees are encouraged to attend.
Others who wish to attend may register on a space available basis. Enrollment
is limited to 36 persons per session, so early registration is recommended.

There is a $10 registration fee. This fee will be used to cover the costs of

Engineering And Mines Senior Design Students Invite Public To Finals

University of North Dakota Engineering students are inviting local business
leaders to observe the final presentations for their senior design class.
Members of the student organization, Society for Energy Alternatives (SEA)
will take advantage of the opportunity to demonstrate the progress they have
made in designing a solar-powered vehicle, the "Subzero."

Four design teams working on the vehicle are scheduled to make their final
presentations Friday, Dec. 13, in Upson Hall. The SEA will host a luncheon
that day for the project's sponsors.

For more than a year, members of SEA have worked to raise money, design, and
build the "Subzero" in time to enter it in June's Sunrayce '97. Open to
college-level education institutions in North America, the Sunrayce challenge
is to design, build and race a solar-powered vehicle on a 1,230 mile state
highway course from Indianapolis, Ind., to Colorado Springs, Colo. The event
is sponsored by the Department of Energy, General Motors, and Electronic Data
Systems.

The challenge for UND's team is complicated by the fact that North Dakota has
never had a Sunrayce entry so there are no previous team's mistakes from which
to learn or past sponsors from whom to obtain financial support. Additionally,
road testing a solar car during north Dakota's winter months is virtually
impossible.

Funding for the project has come from regional corporations, small businesses
and private citizens. Among the biggest contributors are electric power
companies.

Expected to attend the luncheon will be representatives from Otter Tail Power,
Phoenix Industries of Crookston, Grand Forks Welding, Northern States Power,
Hansen Ford, Rydell Chevrolet, Bruce Hart's Repair, Dow Welding Supply
Company, Interstate Bearing, individual contributors, and interested UND
faculty, staff and alumni.

Vehicle designs are nearly completed and construction has begun. The "Subzero"
will be unveiled to the public in February 1997, tested at the Las Vegas Motor
Speedway during spring break in March, and entered in the Sunrayce in June.
For more information contact SEA President, Renae Patrick at 7-4110. -- Jan
Orvik, Editor, for Sunrayce Engineering students.

The aim of the conference is to bring together people with a common interest
in the quality and availability of health care services in the rural regions
of the Dakotas and Minnesota. The conference attracts health care providers
form a wide range of disciplines including nursing, hospital and long-term
care administration, nutrition, environmental health care, social work, human
services, and professions devoted to the well-being of the elderly.

This is the fourth year that the event, formerly known as the Dakota
Conference on Rural Health, has been presented in an expanded format,
including the annual meeting of the North Dakota Public Health Association.
The conference has been presented annually since 1983.

Medicine, Honolulu, Hawaii. Smith is a nationally renowned speaker and award-winning medical pioneer who helped to start the physician assistant/nurse
practitioner movement 28 years ago.

Two preconference workshops will be presented the morning of Feb. 26. Keynote
speaker will conduct a session on American Indian and holistic issues. A
second workshop will provide participants with background on accessing health
care information online through the Internet.

Another feature of this event is the national legislative update session which
presents staff members from the offices of U.S. Senators Kent Conrad and Byron
Dorgan (both D-N.D.) and Congressman Earl Pomeroy (D-N.D.). On Feb. 26, they
will update the audience regarding legislative matters affecting rural and
public health care, and respond to questions.
Another health policy session will be a roundtable discussion with state
legislators. Members of the House and Senate human services committees will be
available to discuss and answer questions related to state health policy.

Presenters from throughout the region will offer insight into such topics as:
women's health, youth health issues; children and teens in weight crisis;
survey results concerning tobacco sales to minors in North Dakota communities;
telemedicine and rural health care; health care networks; recruitment for
physician assistants, nurse practitioners and certified nurse midwives;
reducing Cesarean sections in North Dakota; marketing for public health
nursing; conflict resolution; diabetes; the Multicultural Health Education
Project; emergency medical services in rural North Dakota; quality management
in medicine; grant writing, and HIV/AIDS Education for rural health care

The conference also features a "foundation resource room," a display area
where foundation representatives are invited to discuss their funding
priorities and guidelines with attendees. Staff members of the Center for
Rural Health and the School of Medicine and Health Sciences, also will be
available to answer grant-related questions.

For a second year, the conference will offer "intensive sessions." These two-hour sessions are intended to offer attendees greater depth of understanding
and to explore subjects in more detail. Four, two-hour sessions will cover the
following subjects: conflict resolution, grantwriting, diabetes and a public
health "smorgasbord" on teen health.

Musiktanz Program to interested families.  Musiktanz is a curriculum developed
by Dr. Lorna Lutz Heyge, an internationally recognized author and early
childhood music educator. She is the founder of Kindermusik and co-author of
the early childhood curriculum, Kindermusik for the Young Child.  Musiktanz is
based on the English edition from her latest work, "A Cycle of Seasons." In
the Musiktanz program the teacher acts as a role model to assist the
parents/care givers in working musically with their children. The parents/care
givers attend the children's lessons  and participate with them in classes
which are comprised of a variety of developmentally appropriate musical
activities involving singing, moving, playing, creating, and listening.

The instructors for the free Music Department demonstration will be Wendy Ensz
and MaryJane Kurpius-Brock, who are presently teaching these pre-school music
classes at UND. The demonstration will be held at Scott's Music Store in the
Columbia Mall on Saturday, Dec. 7, for anyone who is interested in learning
about the Musiktanz approach to pre-school music education.  Any
parents/caregivers who with their children would like to be participants in
the demonstration should contact Wendy Ensz at 780-9686 or the Music
Department at 7-2644 to sign up. The schedule will be as follows: Level II

Get Up And Go With Healthtrip '97

All citizens in the Greater Grand Forks area are invited to "get up and go,
with Healthtrip '97!"  You don't have to train for the Boston Marathon to reap
the benefits of being active.  "The Surgeon General's Report on Physical
Activity," published last July, shows that people of all ages can improve the
quality of their lives through a lifelong practice of moderate physical
activity.  Moderate amounts of activity can be obtain in a brisk 30-minute
walk, 30 minutes of mowing the lawn or raking leaves, a 15-minute run, or 45
minutes of playing volleyball.  Gardening and dancing count, too.  And if you
are already doing that, consider picking up the pace!  The report notes that
people who already are physically active will benefit even more by increasing
the intensity or duration of their activity.

Healthtrip '97 is an exercise incentive program designed to encourage
employees and residents in Grand Forks, East Grand Forks and the Grand Forks
Air Force Base to exercise regularly.  The United Hospital and the Grand Forks
Chamber of Commerce are co-sponsors.  The program starts with a kick-off event
Wednesday, Jan. 8, 1997, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Y Family Center, North
Seventh Street and University Avenue.  It will conclude April 30. 
Registration can take place at any time; most like to register at the Chamber
of Commerce before the starting date and at the Y on the starting date.  There
is no deadline; you and your friends can join at any time.

Each participant in Healthtrip '97 will receive a map of the bike path.  Now
in its seventh year, Healthtrip is promoting a tour of the community.  By
recording hours of moderate aerobic exercise, participants will receive
corresponding credit on their maps.  Incentive gifts are presented halfway
through the trip and at the end.  In 1996, 1,800 people joined the program to
"travel the world."  Any and all exercise counts on the map.  If you spend 15
minutes in a moderate activity, such as a 15-minute walk, this will count as a
quarter mile on the bike path.  For this year's Healthtrip, you can double
your mileage if your time in exercise is most intense or is an activity that
will keep you in your target heart rate zone.  For example, if you do 15
minutes of running or brisk walking and your heart rate is in the target heart
rate zone, you can put a half mile on the map, instead of a quarter mile.

Healthtrip Committee members are active 11 months of the year.  This group is
composed of community members and is open to anyone interested in joining our
working committee.  For more information, contact Debbie Kosmatka at 780-5177
or Jamie Johnson at 772-7271.  To obtain more information or to join
Healthtrip, call 772-7271 and "Get Up and Go!" -- Jan Orvik, Editor,
University Letter, for Debbie Kosmatka (United Hospital), Healthtrip '97.
