UCSB Hosting Great Zombie Debate

Professors will battle for one spot, and you get to decide who survives

Imagine that a zombie outbreak has ended society as we know it. UCSB students are part of an exclusive safe house that has enough resources to admit one more member.

Professors from various disciplines will ferociously fight with one another to gain that one remaining spot.

Come to The Hub at 8 p.m. Thursday, May 13 to hear the professors debate why their discipline is the best, and then vote for who you think deserves to survive.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering will be represented by professor Jeff Moehlis. If you think mechanical engineering is useful in today’s world, just wait until you hear how useful it’s in the post-apocolyptic, zombie-infested world.

Admission is free. Doors will open at 7:45 p.m.

— Jeff Moehlis is an associate professor of mechanical engineering at UCSB.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
