For the past decade or more, many have looked forward to the resurgence of nuclear power, particularly because it is a major, centralized source of electricity generation that produces few greenhouse gases that are linked to climate change. However, the nuclear renaissance exists primarily in Asia and not in the United States, where until a year ago we have seen no new nuclear plants proposed and built for over three decades. Five reactors are now under construction in Georgia and South Carolina, but four have closed in the last year, including the Kewaunee Nuclear Power Plant in Wisconsin. This course explores these developments and offers some explanations for why nuclear power continues to face significant hurdles today. It also reviews the particular circumstances that led to the Kewaunee plant shutdown and the implications for Northeastern Wisconsin.

THE MICROBES IN THE HUMAN GUT: WHAT DO THEY DO FOR US? (N)

Course No. 101
Presenter: Prof. Lee Schwartz
Coordinators: Stu Hoar, Sheila Tomac
Dates: Sept. 11, 18
Limit: 120 Time: 1- 3 pm Location: NPM

The colon (gut) supports an enormous population of microbes estimated at 10 times the number of human body cells. From birth, micro biota and diet shape the development and function of the human immune system and the “gut” with each interacting to maintain intestinal health. The microbes of the colon include beneficial microbes that produce vitamins and other molecules essential to human growth. Diet (vegetables, fruit, meat, pro-pre-biotics and other), pharmaceutical products influence microbial function in the gut. What happens when the microbial balance is disturbed? There is increasing evidence that diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, colon cancer, diabetes, obesity and others may be associated with an abnormal mix of microbes in the colon. Possible treatments – stool (fecal) transplants from healthy people.
