Academic Expo: Beyond GDP

Professor Pete Klenow presents:

Beyond GDP

GDP is a popular but incomplete measure of human welfare.  How does taking into account leisure time, inequality, and mortality alter the portrait of living standards?  For example, is welfare currently higher in the U.S. or France?  Income and consumption are higher in the U.S., but in France people enjoy more leisure, live longer, and face less inequality.  For another example, take income growth in the U.S. and China.  In both countries inequality is rising and leisure is falling.  Do these trends mean welfare is rising more slowly than income, or even declining?

Academic Expo: Why Volunteering and Community Service is Overrated, and Even Bad for Society

Why Volunteering and Community Service is Overrated, and Even Bad for Society

Do not worry if there is a brief period of silence during Professor Reich's
session.  A practitioner of the famed Socratic Method of teaching,
Reich believes the purpose of intellectual challenge in a classroom is a
moral education that probes students' core beliefs and values - or, as the
character of Socrates emphasizes in Plato's Republic, the central question
is how one ought to live.  If an interesting and unexpected idea arises in
the course of a classroom discussion, Reich believes teachers should be
willing to pursue it, even if they have no idea where it may lead.
Practicing what he preaches, Reich is a popular and award-winning teacher
who recognizes that spontaneous and unpredictable conversations make for
some of the best classroom experiences.  In this session, Reich will discuss the moral landscape of community service and volunteering, the ethics of public service.

Hike the Dish

Join some of the SPOT (Stanford Pre-Orientation Trip) leaders from Stanford Outdoor Education for a walk of “The Dish”, a popular activity on campus and something on every student’s “to do” list. On the way, you’ll learn all about Stanford’s wilderness and service-learning SPOT trips and how you can get involved!

The Dish, a landmark in the Palo Alto Hills, is located at the top of one of Stanford’s campus nature reserves and offers great views of the Bay Area. We strongly encourage participants to bring FULL water bottles, wear comfortable walking shoes and clothing. Remember that you will have to carry all your belongings as there are no storage facilities.

The walk will head to the top of the hill, where the actual satellite dish sits. At that point, people have the option to walk back the way they came, or to continue on to do the full loop. The full loop is about 3.5 miles.

(Until 11:00 a.m.)

Academic Expo: Can a random Rubik's cube be solved?

If the pieces of a Rubik's cube are pried apart with a screwdriver and reassembled in random positions, can the puzzle be solved? It turns out that the answer is no: the proportion of random arrangements of the puzzle pieces that can reach the "solved" position via legal moves is 1/12. In the course of explaining this curious fact, we will see how to use elementary ideas from group theory to analyze this famous puzzle as well as its 19th-century analogue, the 15-puzzle. Previous knowledge of group theory will not be assumed.
