Sizzle Gives Them the Old Razzle-Dazzle

Sizzle comes to the Loft Cinema at 7 p.m. this Wednesday, March 31. Details here.

Randy Olson, a marine biologist who became a filmmaker with Sizzle, will be at the Loft for the screening and a subsequent Q&A that will include UA professors Julia Cole of geosciences, Diana Liverman of the Institute of the Environment, Brian McGill of the School of Natural Resources and the Environment and Jacqueline Sharkey of the School of Journalism. (BTW: Sharkey is also my boss over at UA School of Journalism.)

Olson is also in town to help celebrate EarthWeek, "a showcase of research by undergraduate and graduate students in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences," according to Mari Jensen of the UA College of Science. Olson will deliver a lively plenary lecture that encourages future scientists to go a little more gonzo. You can catch "Don't be Such a Scientist: Talking Substance in an Age of Style," at
