PhET, as well as other announced partners, are unified by a single, ambitious goal: to prepare all students with the high-quality STEM knowledge and skills to equip them for success in college and the workplace. … Ann Komara, associate professor and Chair of Landscape Architecture at the University of Colorado Denver, wrote an essay for a special issue of “Landscape Journal” examining the influence of Lawrence Halprin on the philosophy and practice of landscape architecture. Komara’s essay is titled “Water Events: Flow and Collection in Skyline Park.” The park was a significant component of the Downtown Denver Urban Renewal Authority’s work in 1970 for the revitalization of a 37-block area in the heart of the once thriving downtown. The article includes images of those early renderings. … Amy Vidali, assistant professor of English at the University of Colorado Denver, published “Hysterical Again: The Gastrointestinal Woman in Medical Discourse” in the Journal of Medical Humanities (34.1). This article suggests increased attention to how medical discourses of gastrointestinal (GI) disorder and distress are fraught with social assumptions and consequences by examining 19th-century and contemporary medical texts focused on chronic constipation and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Her analysis of the representation of the gastrointestinal woman is shaped by disability studies scholarship, which encourages intervention in problematic medical discourses and more active shaping of discourses of chronic pain and illness by those who have these conditions. … Lee Newman, professor of environmental and occupational health, was named by Best Doctors Inc. to be among the top 5 percent of doctors in the U.S. A Denver subset of the list was published Feb. 22 as a supplement to the Denver Business Journal.  Newman was listed as top doctor in the field of occupational medicine, along with Denver colleagues, Karen Mulloy, Karin Pacheco, Cecile Rose and David Albert Schwartz.
