Mango Party raises $1,000 for CWEF

A message from Dr. Pandey:

Dear All Friends,

Thank you all for joining us for the annual mango party on June 17, 2016.  Thank you for your generous donation for CWEF,  total amount donated n the mango box was Cash $400.00 and a Checque of $100.00 adding up to $500.00.  As a match for this donation I donated $500.00 to CWEF.  Thus we raised total of $1000.00 for CWEF, that is sufficient to support education of eight children of widows in India, Kenya or Tanzania.

Thank you again,

Siyaram Pandey

Special Seminar - Dr. Joe Schwarcz - Thurs. Jun. 16 at 3 pm

Special Seminar: Dr. Joe Schwarcz, Director, McGill University, Office for Science and Society, will present a seminar on Thursday, June 16, 2016 at 3:00p.m. in room #186 Essex Hall.


Eating has become a confusing experience.  Virtually every day bring news about some “miracle food” that we should be gulping down.  One day it's tomatoes to prevent cancer, then flaxseed against heart disease or soybeans for menopause.  Then there are the worries: genetic modification, aspartame, MSG, the safety and efficacy of dietary supplements.  We need proper science to guide us through this nutritional maze.

Students, staff, faculty and members of the public are welcome to attend.

Joe Schwarcz is Director of McGill University’s Office for Science and Society. He is well known for his informative and entertaining public lectures on topics ranging from the chemistry of love to the science of aging. Dr. Joe has received numerous awards for teaching chemistry and for interpreting science for the public and is the only non-American ever to win the American Chemical Society’s prestigious Grady-Stack Award for demystifying chemistry. He hosts "The Dr. Joe Show" on Montreal's CJAD and has appeared hundreds of times on The Discovery Channel, CTV, CBC, TV Ontario and Global Television. He is also an amateur conjurer and often spices up his presentations with a little magic. Dr. Joe also writes a newspaper column entitled “The Right Chemistry” and has authored a number of books including best-sellers, “Radar, Hula Hoops and Playful Pigs,” “The Genie in the Bottle,” "The Right Chemistry," and “An Apple A Day."  Dr. Joe was awarded the 2010 Montreal Medal, the Canadian Chemical Institute’s premier prize recognizing lifetime contributions to chemistry in Canada. In 2015 he was named winner of the Balles Prize for critical thinking by the US based Committee for Skeptical Inquiry in recognition of his 2014 book, "Is That A Fact?"
