Have You Given LAVC Your Cell Phone and Alternate Email to Receive Emergency Notifications?
LAVC is urging all LAVC students, faculty and staff to provide emergency contact information to Valley College through the new LAVC Connect portal. During a campus emergency, LAVC will be notifying all students, faculty and staff using a new emergency alert system called Blackboard Connect. This new system has the ability to let LAVC send emergency alert notifications simultaneously to students, staff and faculty by email, voice, and text message. However, students, faculty and staff must provide their cell phone number and an alternate/personal email address (on the LAVC Connect Portal) before LAVC will be able to send alert by text or to a non-LACCD/non-LAVC email account. In the event of a campus emergency, current students will automatically receive alert notifications to their LACCD email address and their primary phone number (according to the LACCD Student Information System); LAVC faculty and staff will automatically receive notifications to their LAVC email address. Text message notifications and notifications to personal email addresses will ONLY be sent to students, faculty and staff who have provide that type of emergency contact information in the LAVC Connect Portal. Please note: this portal is for emergency notifications only, and will not update any student and employee records with the LACCD. (Faculty & Staff—A How to Sign Up for Emergency Alerts from LA Valley College for Faculty/Staff guide is available).

Three LAVC Students Selected for the NASA JPL Student Independent Research Internship (SIRI) Spring Program
LAVC Students Emelie Oiknine, Shahen Mirzoyan and Diana Lau have been chosen to participate in the NASA JPL Student Independent Research Internship (SIRI) Program for Spring 2015. As part of this program, all the three students will be required to enroll in an Independent Study Course (Math 385) at Los Angeles Valley College. In addition, they will be expected to work 10-15 hours per week at JPL under the guidance of a JPL mentor from February 9-May 26, 2015.
Emelie Oiknine will be working on the “Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Image Understanding” Project , under the mentorship of Christopher Kanan, a researcher in JPLs Mobility and Robotic Systems Section. She will assist in developing and evaluating algorithms for saliency, detection, classification, and tracking of objects in UAV imagery. Emelie will also gain experience in machine learning and computer vision, including cutting-edge topics such as deep learning.
Shahen Mirzoyan will be working on a “Reduction of Thermal Emission Observations of Jupiter” Project under the mentorship of Glenn Orton, a senior research scientist at JPL. Shahen’s primary task will be to perform data reduction for absolute radiance (including possible comparisons between calibrations based on similarities with spacecraft results and standard-star observations) and the assignment of geometry. These tasks are written in an application of the Interactive Data Language (IDL). In addition, time may permit him to perform the beginning of a task to derive appropriate atmospheric parameters from the data using a FORTRAN-based program.
Diana Lau will be working on the “Microorganisms Cultured from Mars-Based Spacecraft, Characterization and Preservation” Project, under the mentorship of Wayne Schubert, a microbiologist/scientist at NASA JPL.

Did You Know? LAVC's Men's & Women's Physical Education Departments are Now Called the LAVC Kinesiology Department
The LAVC Men's Physical Education and Women's Physical Education Departments have recently joined together to create the Kinesiology Department. This new department combines all the men's and women's physical education courses into one department, and includes the subjects of Dance Specialties, Dance Studies, Dance Techniques, Health, Kinesiology, Kinesiology Athletics, Kinesiology Major, and Recreation. The department is also offering a new Associate Arts Transfer (AA-T) Degree. Kinesiology is the study of the art and science of human movement, while physical education is defined as sports and exercise taught in schools. This redefined focus also more closely aligns with how the discipline is referred to at most colleges and universities. All the Kinesiology Department classes have the same content and curriculum as the former physical education classes, and most importantly, these classes still fulfill the section E general education requirement. Students interested in pursuing fitness wellness careers (in the teaching/coaching/ therapy areas) or careers in clinical areas (such as physical therapy, cardiac rehabilitation, diabetes management or research and medicine) should explore Kinesiology as their major. For more information, contact the Kinesiology Department at (818) 947-2907.
