If you missed last week's lecture by Ranulph Fiennes (who's pretty much the real-life Most Interesting Man in the World), no worries. We've got your back and your recap right here.
When it came time for author and renowned explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes to pick teams to travel along with him on his globe-trotting adventures, he zeroed in on a key quality during the selection process: motivation. Fiennes, who spoke to a crowd of about 675 on Jan.

So this guy is coming to campus to give a free lecture.

Oh, you don't know who this guy is?

This guy is the one-and-only world-renowned explorer and author Sir Ranulph Fiennes. This guy climbed Mt. Everest at age 65, discovered a lost city in the deserts of the Arabian peninsula, and he was the first person to cross Antarctica on foot.

Did we mention that his speech is free to attend?
World-renowned explorer and author Sir Ranulph Fiennes will be the featured speaker at Cal Poly Pomona's Kellogg Distinguished Public Lecture Series. Fiennes, whom the Guinness Book of Records dubbed the “World's Greatest Living Explorer,” will discuss “Living Dangerously” on Thursday, Jan.

Malaria kills hundreds of thousands of people per year. It sickens hundreds of millions more. 

A Cal Poly Pomona biology professor and a CPP grad student have just published a paper whose findings could be the key to changing those terrible statistics.
The Anopheles minimus mosquito, which is the only type of mosquito capable of transmitting malaria among humans. A Cal Poly Pomona professor and student researcher are trying to determine if genetic engineering can prevent the insects from transmitting the disease to humans.

Introduction

Striking a balance between urban excitement and rural charm, Cal Poly Pomona is nestled in 1,438 rolling acres on the eastern edge of Los Angeles County. As one of only seven polytechnic universities nationwide, Cal Poly Pomona is known for its learn-by-doing philosophy. The university recognizes that students who solve classroom problems today have an advantage as employees solving real-world problems tomorrow. Faculty in all disciplines apply theory to practice, creating opportunities for students to use their knowledge in hands-on projects, collaboration in research, and participation in valuable internships and service learning programs.

Ranked among the top public universities in the western United States, Cal Poly Pomona provides a rich academic experience that encourages hands-on learning in every program, course, and activity on campus. The university features eight academic colleges: Agriculture; Business Administration; Collins College of Hospitality Management; Education and Integrative Studies; Engineering; Environmental Design; Letters, Arts and Social Sciences; and Science. In addition, community access to traditional extension programs is offered through the Extended University.

The university, formally known as California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, is a part of the 23-campus California State University system.
