“The class focuses on the discipline of play required for physical comedy, which is quite different than the free play we practice as children. We must learn how to have fun on cue in the most challenging circumstances in spite of our own fear of failure. My students will then take this new discipline and apply it to their respective fields of study, asking, ‘How would my work change if it was a requirement that I have fun doing it in order to succeed?’”
Penn Stater's research on 'play' leads to interactive comedy about saving the world http://ow.ly/Y5yzl
Arts and Design Research Incubator Research Fellow Sandi Carroll's study of the discipline of play led her to create an interactive comedy about saving the world. Her show — "Mission: Implausible!" — will be performed at 8 p.m. Feb. 11-13 at the Penn State Downtown Theatre Center.

Penn State researcher Chunshan Song has a plan to address one of the most important issues facing the world today — reducing #greenhousegas emissions to curb the negative impacts of climate change. http://ow.ly/Y5yJN
Seeing carbon dioxide as a raw material rather than a waste produce could lead to a more sustainable future for the energy sector and chemical industry. Penn State researcher Chunshan Song is pursuing this goal and has seen results that indicate carbon dioxide conversion could be the best long-term solution to reduce excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

Now you see it, now you don't: A bright object that disappeared from the early universe hints at the existence of a new kind of 'on again, off again' object at the center of some galaxies.

“The task force has benefited from the diversity of its membership,” said Vice President for Student Affairs Damon Sims, who chairs the the group. “But we’re seeking insights and suggestions from the many constituencies most directly affected by our inquiry and deliberations to insure the most comprehensive and useful recommendations we can offer.”

"However, we dreamed that one day, most likely after we graduated, that the entire campus would be rid of Styrofoam containers. It has been the most rewarding and fulfilling experience to grow this project from the ground up, and after two years, Penn State is moving away from using #Styrofoam containers in the dining commons."

A new piece by a Penn State professor of history and environmental studies on The Conversation:
An #environmental activist friend of mine recently shook her head and marveled at the extraordinary accomplishments of the last several months. “Still lots of work to be done,” she said. “But wow! This has been an epic period for environmentalists!” http://ow.ly/XOsIx

"We knew that the compaction into chromatin makes #genes inaccessible to the cellular machinery necessary for gene expression, and we also knew that enzymes opened up the chromatin to specify which genes were accessible and could be expressed in a cell, but until now, we didn't know the mechanism by which these enzymes functioned," said B. Franklin Pugh, Evan Pugh Professor, Willaman Chair in Molecular Biology, and professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at Penn State University. http://ow.ly/XNqAm
An international team of biologists has discovered how specialized enzymes remodel the extremely condensed genetic material in the nucleus of cells in order to control which genes can be used. The discovery will be published in the print edition of the journal Nature on February 4, 2016.

Penn State has a lovely campus to walk around and sightsee. I am a PSU alumni and really enjoyed my time as a Penn State student. I just wish it didn't cost so much.

As a grad student at the Food Science Department I could not be happier. I cannot talk for the maybe hundreds of other departments, but at lease in our dept and as far as I know in the College of Agriculture, most people are happy with their programs. And then we have State College... awesome city to live if you like small cities...

Great college. Great town for shopping and drinking. If you're an ice cream fan, be sure to visit The Creamery. Some of the best ice cream around, anywhere.

Penn State is the university for you if you enjoy feeling like a number, being taught by graduate assistants in enormous lecture halls then working as a barista after graduation.
