YOUR NEW FAVORITE BIOSYNTHETIC PATHWAY

What do peppermint flavor, rocket fuel and the molecules that determine human sexuality have in common? They're all made, in different organisms, by the same biosynthetic pathway: the isopentenyl pyrophosphate (IPP) pathway. IPP pathway products have very diverse and important functions, and this is your chance to learn about a few of these molecules and all the extremely cool things they do for you and pretty much all life around you.

THE THEATRE OF CRUELTY: ANTONIN ARTAUD AND THEATRE AS A TOOL FOR SOCIAL CHANGE

We think of the theatre as a place to sit and watch actors on a stage say words to each other. Sometimes that's nice, sometimes it's boring. But what would it look like if we tapped the full potential of theatre as an art form? What might that look like? Feel like? Sound like? Could it rock people to their core so hard that they come out of it changed? Antonin Artaud developed a concept of theatre in the 1930s that proposed just that. In this challenging and often heartbreaking time in human history, perhaps it's time to revisit his ideas and see if cruelty truly belongs in theatre.
