Human Longevity, the OK Corral, Guerilla
Clashes Part of Student Research Day Nov. 10
Insights into aging and longevity in humans and other beings
will be given by Warren S. Browner, M.D., in his address, “In
Search of the Fountain: The Genetics of Human Longevity,” at
12:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 10, at California State University,
Browner is the keynote speaker at Student Research Day at
the university, which will include 74 undergraduate and graduate
students presenting their research—some of it cutting-edge—on
a wide variety of subjects, including science, mathematics,
philosophy, sociology, history, humanities, agriculture,
exercise, health, and business and economics.
Up to 10 of the students will be chosen to present their
research at the California State University Statewide Competition,
and monetary awards will be given.
CSU Dominguez Hills President James E. Lyons, Sr., will
make the opening address at the 8:30 a.m. continental breakfast.
A sampling of the presentations includes “Where the
Truths Lie,” a delving into the social and legal history
behind the famous/infamous gunfight at the OK Corral between
the Earp group and the Clanton group in 1881 and why the
gun battle is portrayed so differently in movies; “Subcomandante
Marcos’ History,” which addresses the two ways
the man known only as Subcomandante Marcos is remembered
by the populace represented by the guerilla movement in and
around Chiapas, Mexico, in 1994 when the Zapatista Army of
National Liberation clashed with the Mexican government,
and the representation of the event in textbooks; and “The
Grand Old Spending Party,” which discusses the presenter’s
research on the growth in government spending during the
Bush Administration compared to previous administrations,
including President Bill Clinton and President Lyndon B.
