EESL Research Assistant City Tech, CUNY
I’m Ryan Redhead, a research assistant at the Energy and Environmental Simulation Laboratory (EESL). I am a Mechanical Engineering major at New York City College of Technology and I am interested in turning waste to energy. What I can bring to the group, in particular, will come in the form of knowledge in Mechanical Engineering. This research seems particularly interesting to me since so much waste is produced by people. This waste is taking up space and not being utilized in the world to its full potential. To me, waste seems like an abundant untapped resource. If we can find a way to harness energy from waste, the possibilities would be endless. I am excited to learn more about research in general and the topic of turning waste into energy.
Following a deep discussion about gun violence in the U.S and a series of mass shootings that have taken place between 1983 -2012 totaling 78, some key take aways are:
What does the literature tell us?
- Failures in mental health system
- Sentimentalization of violence – popularity of gun violence and gun rights advocates in United States
What can we do to make a change?
- Reforms mental health system needed
- Tell full stories (media) and sensationalize armed citizens not just shooting rampages!
Great Food! Up beat EESL playlist music selections! Good vibes!
