1. How to be a Better Advisor
From: Joan Schmelz [jschmelzmemphis.edu]

Iím collecting advice on how to be a better advisor for grad students. We 
already have a Top 10 list, which was distributed via AASWOMEN on August 4th, 
but this request is for something more specific.

In Astronomy, we find ourselves in a situation where most advisors are men, 
while (hopefully!) more and more of the students are women. It is well known 
that men and women communicate differently, and this applies to astronomers, 
too.

What does a male advisor do, for example, when his female grad student comes 
into his office and breaks into tears? This can be quite a shock for the 
advisor. Can we give him some advice on what to do and what not to do? Can we 
explain to him what these tears mean and don't mean?

His first reaction might be to comfort her, the way he might comfort his
daughter when she is crying. Is it _ever_ appropriate for the male advisor 
to hug his female student? Can he pat her shoulder? No? What should he do 
instead?

On the other hand, he might panic because he has no experience with tears. 
He needs to recognize that this is a completely natural reaction, _not_ the 
end of the world. It is an emotional response to a problem, and he needs to 
help her calm down so she can tell him about it. What should he do?

Would anyone be willing to help me put together some advice on what an 
advisor should and shouldn't do in this particular situation or other 
situations that might be important?

Thanks,

2. Modified Planetary Mnemonic
From: Phyllis Lugger [luggerindiana.edu]

Given the revised status of Pluto, it seems that children will need a new 
mnemonic for remembering the planets.  The one that I learned as a child at 
the McDonnell Planetarium in St. Louis was:

My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas.  (I don't know the author.)

I suggest the following modified version keeping with the theme of foods that 
children enjoy:

My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nachos.

I wrote to Owen Gingerich with this mnemonic yesterday and he said that he 
thought this modification should work well.  As you may know, Owen has a long 
interest in mnemonics for the stellar classification system.

My daughter, Amy (age 10), likes the nachos version.

5. Girls and Science: Call for Proposals
From: WIPHYS August 25, 2006 

The Feminist Press, in collaboration with The National Science Foundation, is 
exploring new ways to get girls and young women interested in science. While 
there are many library resources featuring biographies of women scientists 
that are suitable for school reports, these are rarely the books that girls 
seek out themselves to read for pleasure. What would a book, or series of 
books, about science that girls really want to read look like? That is the 
question we want to answer.

Youíll find several requests for specific proposals at our website.  One calls 
for scientific detective stories based on the life, research, and discoveries 
of real women scientists. Another calls for stories featuring real young women-
aspiring gymnasts, ice skaters, actors, dancers--using a knowledge of science 
to help them become really good at what they do. A third recognizes how popular 
Manga and graphic novels are with girls, and asks for imaginative new 
collaborations between Manga writers and artists to create adventures about 
girls who use real science to accomplish their goals. If any of these three 
book ideas interest you, please check out our website 

www.feministpress.org

for more information about deadline and how to submit proposals.

But we do not want to limit our exploration. If you are a writer and have an 
idea for a book or series of books that is guaranteed to get girls excited 
about science, we want to hear from you. You may want to create a girl 
detective series featuring a set of friends-from geeks to sports nuts to 
mechanical geniuses-each with a knowledge of science that helps in solving 
crimes. You may want to create a story about a shy girl who goes on field 
trips with her favorite aunt, a forensic anthropologist, and helps to solve 
problems as she learns to think like a Dr. Bones. You may want to tell the
story of a young science fiction writer who needs to study different fields 
of science in order to create her adventures. Whatever your vision, if you can 
write like a dream and can create works that are guaranteed to instill a 
curiosity about science in girls and young women, send us your proposals. We 
want to hear from you.

All proposals will be reviewed. Several proposals will be offered standard 
contracts.

Publisher: The Feminist Press at City University of New York as part of a 
National Science Foundation grant. (see feministpress.org)
Deadline: October 31, 2006
Format: Proposals should describe the project, the plot, characters, and 
length. No more than ten pages please.
How to submit: Electronic submission (word doc) to fhowegc.cuny.edu 
with the subject line "Girls and Science." 
Please include in the body of your email your address, phone number, email 
address and a short bio. Please also attach a brief sample of your writing 
(about five pages), and a resume that includes information about publications.

6. Postdoctoral positions at NOAO
From: Pat Knezek [pknezeknoao.edu]

Title: Postdoctoral Research Associate
Job #806 

The National Optical Astronomy Observatory (NOAO) in Tucson, Arizona, invites 
applications for two or more postdoctoral researchers in observational galaxy 
evolution. 

One or more positions will be available for work with Mark Dickinson and 
colleagues on science from a new Spitzer Legacy survey, a deep/wide far-infrared 
survey of cosmological star formation and AGN activity. This project, which is 
currently lacking a catchy acronym, has been awarded 397 hours with Spitzer/MIPS 
to survey 0.5 square degrees in two main fields: the Extended Chandra Deep Field 
South (EGS), and the Extended Groth Strip (EGS/AEGIS). 70 micron imaging for 0.05 
square degrees in GOODS-N is also being completed. The program will study high 
redshift, dust obscured star formation and AGN using the deepest and most 
extensive 70 micron Spitzer data, as well as 24 micron data with "near-GOODS" 
depth. 

The survey fields have extensive, multiwavelength data from Spitzer, Chandra, 
HST, and ground-based telescopes. Successful applicants will be expected to 
take leading roles in research projects, as well as to help with the data 
reduction and analysis, and to work with supporting data from other facilities 
or new observing programs. This survey begins collecting data in late August 
2006, and will continue through summer 2007. Successful candidates could begin 
work immediately, and applicants who would be available soon are strongly 
encouraged to apply. However, this is not a requirement. 

Another position will be available for work with Arjun Dey, Buell Jannuzi, 
Mark Dickinson, and others, on "intersurvey" research, analyzing data from 
complementary wide-field and deep surveys such as the NOAO Deep Wide-Field 
Survey (NDWFS), the Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey (GOODS), the new 
Spitzer Legacy MIPS survey described above, and perhaps others. Combining the 
strengths of these surveys, which cover a wide swath of area/depth parameter 
space, will make it possible to address questions in galaxy evolution utilizing 
large samples spanning a wide range of redshift and environment. We intend to 
focus on studies generally beyond the scope of any individual survey, such as 
the evolution of rare populations, clustering evolution, and environmental 
dependencies of galaxy evolution. The successful applicant will be largely able 
to determine the direction of the research program based on their interests. 

Applicants are sought with interest and experience in observational studies 
of galaxy evolution formation, evolution, and clustering. Expertise in any of 
the following topics would be preferred: optical and near-infrared spectroscopy 
of distant galaxies, photometric redshift estimation, interpretation of galaxy 
properties from broad-band spectral energy distributions, star formation and 
stellar populations at high redshift, and the interplay between star formation 
and AGN activity. Skills for analyzing and organizing complex, multiwavelength 
data sets are a plus. 

Appointments are initially for one year, with extension for up to three years 
contingent on performance and funding. 

Applicants should submit a CV, a list of publications, and a statement of 
current and future research interests electronically to 
hrnoaonoao.edu, reference 
#806 Postdoctoral Research in Observational Galaxy Evolution, by 30 
October 2006. Early applications will be considered immediately for the Spitzer 
Legacy survey positions. Please arrange to have three letters of reference
