AIChE National Capital Section Dinner Meeting
Thursday, May 29, 2014 6:30PM
Normandie Farm Restaurant
10710 Falls Road, Potomac, MD
Tel. 301-983-8838

Topic: Iranian Culture, Science, and Technology
Speaker: Dr. H. K. (Bernie) Huang, FRCR(Hon.), FAIMBE Professor Emeritus of Radiology and Biomedical Engineering University of Southern California

Dinner Cost: $35 per person

This month we have an unusual opportunity to learn about the culture of one of the greatest ancient civilizations of the World and the current scientific and technological status of a country that is foreign to the United States due to diplomatic estrangement for the past 35 years.

Our speaker, Dr. Bernie Huang, has had a long and distinguished career in the field of informatics, radiology, and biomedical engineering. Earlier he established the Biomedical Physics Graduate Program in three clinical departments at UCLA, and held Professorship of Radiology and Vice Chair at UCLA and UCSF. He has also lectured extensively overseas and collaborated with foreign colleagues, including being Chair Professor of Medical Informatics, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and Honorary Professor of the Shanghai Institute of Technical Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

In addition to research and scholastic work, Bernie also uses such opportunities to explore the culture and enjoy the recreational offering (e.g., scuba diving) of the countries he visits. The talk he is giving was the result of his repeated visits to Iran at the invitation of the colleagues there. He will speak on Persepolis - Ancient Capital of Persian, the art of historical engineering, the people, and state-of-the-art healthcare technology. We are sure that his talk will give us a much-needed glimpse and understanding of that country's scientific community and capability.

Please note: Your Executive Committee emissaries have negotiated a fabulous menu selection at a great price at a legendary restaurant known for its hot golden popovers. Please RSVP by May 27 at the NCS signup form. Once signed up, you are committed to come and pay at the door. Make checks payable to NCS/AIChE or Cash; no credit cards can be accepted. Vegetarian option by advanced request.

Driving Direction: Normandie Farm is approximately one mile north of the Potomac Village in Maryland. From the village center at MD190 (River Road) and MD189 (Falls Road), which is 3.5 miles west of the Beltway River Road exit, go north on Falls Road for about a mile. After the traffic light at Democracy Boulevard, the road curves to the left. On the right is the Bullis School and Normandie Farm is on the left across the road from the school. If one comes from the north on Falls Road, Normandie Farm is at the end of the county golf course on the right. See http://www.popovers.com/ for details.

Abstract: At this point, it feels like the economy is shifting into second gear. Holding us back are major elements of the economy that are refusing to cooperate - stubborn unemployment and a flat housing market. But the news is not all bad. There are multiple signs that the economy is returning to wealth. We will review some reasons to be optimistic and some reasons to be cautious. Then we'll offer some ideas on how all of this impacts you as the investor.
