    Columbia Memorial Space Center

    in Travel

    The Columbia Memorial Space Center is a hands-on learning center that is dedicated to bringing the wonder and excitement of space science to children of all ages.  We also serve as the national memorial for the Space Shuttle Columbia’s seven crew members, lost in 2003.  Located in Downey, California, we strive to be the most accessible space science center in the Los Angeles area.

    I worked at Rockwell International in my past life and spent about 3 years in Downey so revisiting the Museum brings back many memories. I was working for Rockwell the day  Space Shuttle Challenger disaster occurred on January 28, 1986, when Space Shuttle Challenger (mission STS-51-L) broke apart 73 seconds into its flight, leading to the deaths of its seven crew members.

    We have 2 very knowledgeable Activity Specialist who will be your interviewees, Richard 'Rick' O'Connor and Jose Carrillo.  Both are veteran staff with us at the Columbia Memorial Space Center and are very knowledgeable of all our exhibits and programs that we offer.  They are often leads in creating new programs and assist with the coordination of our special events.

    Columbia (South America, That Is): Rich in Black History

    in Entertainment

    Is Bogotá the new Harlem? Could be, if you ask Bonnie DeShong and Ja'Vonne Harley. “Each week we’re going to highlight a destination that’s rich in black history and we recently discovered that Columbia is one of those destinations,” say The Traveling Eye hosts. “Columbia has the Amazon, so there’s dense jungle, but there are also the coast lines, both the Pacific Ocean and the Carribbean Sea. They have great beaches and food and cultural diversity, including Africans who came over through slavery,” adds Bonnie. “Now, African history there certainly wasn’t the first thing that came to mind, but in 1992 there was an estimate that Afro-Columbians comprise up to 21 percent of the entire population in Columbia.”

    in Psychology

    Speakers: Patrick J. McGrath M.D., Co-Director of the Depression Evaluation Service at the New York State Psychiatric Institute/Columbia University Medical Center and Maria Oquendo M.D. Vice Chair for Education & Training and Director of Psychiatric Residency Program at the New York State Psychiatric Institute/Columbia University Medical Center

    Description: Dr. Patrick J. McGrath and Dr. Maria Oquendo will discuss what we have learned so far in efforts to tailor treatment for depression to the needs of individual patients, and a current research project aiming to enhance this in the future.  They will address how the efficacy of current treatments is limited by doctors’ inability to predict in advance which person will respond to which treatment and the necessity of relying on “trial-and-error” in selecting treatments for mood disorders.  They will discuss a new study funded by the National Institute of Mental Health using cutting-edge brain imaging and other biologic testing to enable selecting the best treatment for an individual at the outset of treatment.

    Contact Information: For more information on obtaining treatment by participating in a research study, please visit the Depression Evaluation Service website at www.depression-nyc.org or call us at 646 774-8000.
